Time is so important to us all, and we all have the same amount of time – that is the great thing! No matter what He has called us to, or all that we are trying to do, He has planned it so that it will all work, just as it should, in the amount of time He has given us.
In last month's governmental prayer time we focused on God's perfect time and perfect timing over your life, and prayed against any robbing, stealing, hindering or delaying of the manifestation of His goodness to you – in His perfect time.
This month again, as we continue to pray, I felt God highlight this wonderful word from Bob Jones, originally posted in June of 2006, and felt the Lord say that as His Kairos time intersects and lines up with your Chronos time – what you are walking out each day, you will begin to see some of those "suddenlies of God" come to pass, restoration of things past, and personal prophetic words and destinies manifest in our midst!
For all that is in His heart, for all that He has spoken, promised and is His perfect will – we say "Yes Lord – let it be"! We know that whatever it is, when it comes from His heart, it is good!!
During the season surrounding the Biblical feast of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit once again identified the coming days as having particular significance. The feast of Pentecost began at sundown on June 5th and extended until the following evening. Thankfully, the Lord released strategic revelation that is continuing to provide further clarity into His heart for this crucial season of church history.
We will outline a portion of those revelations with the hope and expectation of providing clarity and encouragement. It seems there is an escalation in the release of Heavenly resources and provision. Many individuals who have been prepared for this hour are beginning to touch higher realms of Heaven and prophetic promises will swiftly find fulfillment. We are living on the threshold of a new day in the Spirit. Many reports of wonderful healings and miracles as well as greater revelation and insight are being shared as an introduction to a fresh dimension of Kingdom reality.
Be Strong and of Good Courage
At 1:30 AM the revelations began for Bob with the important commissioning of Joshua following the death of Moses. The admonition came from Joshua 1:9. It is an interesting affirmation that at the same time, my wife Wanda received instruction from Deuteronomy 9:1.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9)
Hear, O Israel! You are crossing over the Jordan today to go in to dispossess nations greater and mightier than you, great cities fortified to heaven (Deuteronomy 9:1)
There is a certain symbolic application of Moses and Joshua related to this present generation and the prior, who experienced the tremendous healing movement beginning in 1946. The initial release of that notable expression of Heavenly power began with an individual who was visited by an angelic messenger and commissioned in the order of Moses. In many respects, that generation could be characterized through the ministry of Moses.
Now, over 50 years later, we are standing on the bank of "spiritual Jordan." Many individuals and ministries are being commissioned in the order of Joshua and will see the fruitfulness of that mandate developing at an escalated pace. Although the same Spirit that rested upon Moses was imparted to Joshua, he nonetheless performed an entirely unique and distinguished function from Moses. That in itself is an important directive.
Although we may receive the gifts and anointing or "mantle" that rested upon someone else, that expression of Heavenly virtue remains unique to our individuality and generational mandate. We are not to emulate or copy others but remain faithful to who the Lord created us to be and seek to imitate the Lord Jesus.
A Dangerous Time
The Holy Spirit spoke to Bob and indicated that this is a dangerous time, but His champions are willing to live “dangerously.” Note, however, this is not saying to live carelessly or presumptuously... only that we be willing to trust the Lord and take a chance on Him. Israel trusted the counsel of Heaven in taking Jericho, although the instruction seemed foolish and dangerous. Their obedience facilitated great victory.
This will be a season to try new things and even be willing to "walk in the lion's den", if so directed. In Daniel's obedience and service to the Lord, he found himself thrust into a dangerous situation among a den of lions. Nonetheless, he was covered and protected and witnessed the provision of Heaven because of the righteousness of his heart.
The Suddenlies of Heaven
At 5:08 AM a further instruction was given to Bob related to the "suddenlies" of Heaven. Although things may seem difficult and trying, they can suddenly change. Perhaps there have been promises and visions given to some that have seemingly died on the vine. However, they can abruptly come to life and become reality.
Bob also heard a unique expression, especially for someone not electronically oriented. It was, "laptops will now come alive." The Holy Spirit seems to be pointing to a distinguished anointing upon the writing of Biblical truth and spiritual reality. This would not be limited to books and articles but also creative expressions of songs, poetry and other means of communicating Truth.
Remaining on the Path
Teachers will emerge who have encountered the Teacher and heard expressions from His lips that will provide clear and concise direction to help prevent us from stepping waywardly to the right or left. The Lord, our Teacher, will suddenly arise to provide access and greater understanding into the mysteries of the Kingdom.
Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, He your Teacher will no longer hide himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher. Your ears will hear a word behind you, "This is the way, walk in it," whenever you turn to the right or to the left. (Isaiah 30:20-21)
The path we have been called to travel is straight and narrow. We can only remain on this path by being ushered by the Spirit of Truth and embracing every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God. The Scriptures are not a matter of private interpretation, but men moved by the Holy Spirit will speak and write from the anointing of God revealing the mysteries of the Kingdom that will present the Bride without spot or wrinkle.
The teachers that will be maturing will primarily be commissioned to DIRECT the people to the Truth... He is the Truth. Christ is both the Way and the Truth and the Holy Spirit is the Guide who shows the way to the Truth. The Lord desires to be the Teacher for all who believe. Anointed instructors will present to the people the seeds of Biblical truth and point the way for each to cultivate their own intimate relationship with the Lord. It is His great pleasure to enlighten His people in the ways of Kingdom life.
The Spirit of Restoration
On the morning of Pentecost I also received a dream in which an ancient sword was being restored. It was one of great value and prominence but had been lost and only recently excavated. Our sword of the Spirit is the Word of God.
Although this newly found sword bore the evidence of being buried, it was immediately put to use upon discovery. With it, we were able to eliminate nocturnal predators, devourers and other unclean adversaries.
My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my verses to the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Thou art fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Thy lips; therefore God has blessed Thee forever. Gird Thy sword on Thy thigh, O Mighty One, in Thy splendor and Thy majesty! And in Thy majesty ride on victoriously, for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; let Thy right hand teach Thee awesome things. (Psalm 45:1-4)
This seemed to also point to both the spoken and written word utilized by the Holy Spirit to expose and neutralize adversaries previously successful in devouring and stealing seeds of promise and purpose.
Personal Prophetic Promises Become Reality
This dream has been a further affirmation of a present release of anointing related to the Spirit of Truth and the fulfillment of personal promises. There is a specific grace that is coming to help give articulation to the revelation of Truth and the blueprint of Heaven. For us, the sword of this nature is representative of the Word of Truth and also indicative of a "word" of promise from the Holy Spirit. We are now in a season in which personal prophetic promises are becoming reality in quick fashion although some were made many years ago.
The promises could be related to issues involving the release into ministry or a higher level of ministry. It could also point to the deposit of Heavenly resources for a specific commission and mandate for which many have been prepared. Likewise, the dream is also highlighting the release of Heavenly authority to overcome the efforts of the adversary attempting to devour or prohibit those things from being manifested. There is a divine focus and determination in the heart of the Lord to see Kingdom purposes birthed and functioning fruitfully in this season.
