These are the days when those who speak of faith and those who demonstrate it will be separated.
I saw in a dream the time of the “underground” church arising with power and the fullness of the Spirit. There were leaders who were being called out because they spoke of faith and taken away. They were lined up being inspected. When I came to my husband, Bobby, a pastor, he was drunk in the Spirit. He had been praying and worshiping and seemed overcome by God’s presence. I was concerned for his well-being as the authorities were looking. Would they take him away, too?
But, as he continued to pray in the Spirit, the authorities saw that he was praying for the community. His prayer and worship seemed to be focused on serving others and seeking the Lord on their behalf. His eyes were closed as he was caught up in heaven’s agenda. They were taken by this demonstration of God’s presence and let him go.
As we went to our house, I saw messages written all over the front. It was the WORD of God – black print on white paper – embedded into the door, entrance and front of the house. Bobby acknowledged its value and began to speak it. I saw another message underneath it. It was concealed but I knew it was there. It was a message about the blood of the Lamb, written on the doorpost. I fell down and began to weep and intercede. I was overcome by the power of it.
These are the days of separating those who talk of faith with no evidence and those who carry God’s presence and demonstrate the Kingdom. There need not be any fear of man when walking under heaven’s command & authority.
These are the days when believers must have the Word of God written on the doorposts of their hearts, ready to be spoken and acted upon at any given moment. His Truth gives us entrance into all things eternal. It is the blood of the Lamb that gives power to the Word of our testimony and provides protection from those forces who would seek to silence our voices and deny our witness.
I then saw a room filled with believers in worship. They were from many congregations and people groups. There was no obvious leader but a common heart to seek the Lord and worship. There was no plan, no agenda, but the reality of a common need in troubling times. Worship was no longer an option or preference. It was a necessity for life and survival.
I then saw an intercessor holding a small baby. This was a grandmother who had prayed all of her life for her posterity to see God’s Kingdom come. She was now holding and caring for a new child that she had birthed after years of barrenness. There was much joy for this is the time of generational prayers being answered. Those who have prepared the way through prayer will see the fullness of those prayers as transforming revival is now born.
In these days when the world is looking for meaning and purpose through fleshly pursuits, immorality and godlessness will continue to increase. People will feed themselves through straws hoping to find nourishment for their souls, only to be left barren and empty. Pray for these to see the life-lines available to them to come out of the shadows of lies and shame.
We must be filled with and empowered by the Spirit of God in these days. No longer just a doctrine, it is the very life-force that will keep us, save us and use us. It cannot be an option. Be filled with and overflowing with the Spirit of God. Live in, breathe in, and walk in God’s presence, for this is the only place of security, hope and all that is true and good.
We must be set apart, not by our congregational labels or doctrinal differences, but by the supernatural presence of a Living God who wants to overtake this world with His glory and goodness.
These are the days…
