And we’ve got to know that, listen, we’re on the target, we’re on the radar, and so no longer do we get to edit the truth, no longer do we get to edit the message. It’s not pretty, it’s not nice, it’s not, it can’t be boxed up in something flowery. Hi guys, my name is Tammy Sutherland and I am here with the Burning Messengers podcast, excited today to talk to you about a dream that the Lord gave me just a week and a half ago concerning the rise of voices, certainly like Esther, that proclaim in this hour if I perish, I perish, and also the importance of the mordecai, the generation of men that would actually call women to be a voice in this hour, willing to sacrifice their platforms or the reputation, because, in truth, we really are in a time where we need to understand that if we die, we die because we need to rise up and be a voice in this hour. Thank you so much for joining me Again. I am Tammy Sutherland, I’m the host of the Burning Messengers podcast and if you’re a burning messenger, you’re really going to enjoy this. Maybe you don’t know you are, but what we’re praying for is for God to raise up a billion burning ones all across the earth that are willing to be a voice, willing to preach the message of the gospel, the truth of Jesus Christ, and live in a lifestyle of prayer, in intercession, without compromise. So again, thank you so much for joining me.

I’m just going to start out this podcast real quick with prayer, because that’s what we’re about Jesus at the center. So, father, we thank you so much for the opportunity to share your word. God, I ask you that you would put me on like a coat, that you would wear me, that it just would only be my skin, that there would be nothing between me and you, that every word is your words, and if it’s not your word, let it fall on deaf ears. But if it is your word, as it says in your word, that it would run swiftly and it would accomplish what you’re sending it forth to accomplish. And, laura, open the hearts of all those that are listening, that are watching and that will watch later, god, that you would do a dynamic work in their souls. God, that you would overcome any wrestle with the flesh and learn that you would help them to be who you created them to be in this hour, lord, not just looking for a platform but willing to be a voice at the end of the age who will lay down their life for the truth of who you are and for those who need to know you. All right in Jesus’ name, amen and amen Again. I’m so thankful for you, you guys that are joining me now, you guys that will join me later.

We are in an hour of urgency, which we all know fully. Right, we know we’re in an hour of urgency. Yesterday I went live with prayer and helping us to understand how to pray in an hour of crisis, and some of us have been sitting in a place of just groaning inwardly, mourning and not really understanding how Go back and look for that podcast or that broadcast that I went live both on Facebook and YouTube, talking about how to pray when we have no words to pray in an hour of crisis. I even use exemplify we step into the prophetic strategic intercession in that live and go into the area that there’s so much tension and we pray into that area very specifically. You’re going to grow in that it’s so important, even as the weeks and months to come, we’re going to teach more and more how to grow in that prophetic, apostolic, strategic intercession for you to really know how to move heaven and earth with your prayers. And so here we go.

This is very powerful, this dream that I had. I’m going to start out with it. About two and a half weeks ago, we did a gathering. It was really powerful the tabernacle on the table, truly outdoors, camping, worshiping and setting a table to feast. Together around this opportunity to partake of Christ, to be transformed by him, really put into action the things that we’ve been prophesying that the Lord is doing. Gathering us together, not around tables of transaction that have to do with rubbing elbows and ministry or seeing how we can build our own thing, but gathering together, looking each other in the eyes, consuming the body and the blood of Christ being transformed and transfigured so that we could be faithful witnesses in the age that we live in.

And so I have this dream and it’s vivid. It starts out and there is a young lady with me, a Gen Z young lady. She’s a house of prayer warrior. She’s been in the house of prayer for years. I’m not gonna say her name in this broadcast because I believe that she’s a representation of many that are out there who are called in this hour to be strong and courageous. And so the beginning of their dream.

It’s almost like Elijah and Elisha I am going and I’m going in pain. I’m going into a place where I’m not really sure where I’m going, but I know that the way that I walk and the anointing that’s on my life has come from a place of crushing. And Elijah, if you know his story, he calls down fire on the prophets of Baal. He’s bold and he’s courageous, and then he receives a letter from Jezebel threatening his life. He gets into fear and he goes and hides. I’ve talked about this, you know, taught on this reality of how to not bow to the spirit of fear and Jezebel in the hour of crisis.

Now we’re in it, right, but in the dream there’s almost this Elijah, elisha reality, and so this young lady wants to be near me, she wants to put her head on my chest and in the dream I’m like you really don’t know what I’ve been through in order to walk where I walk, and so, in a sense, I’m almost pushing her away. The way that Elijah, that Elisha, at the different places where he would go, and Elisha is asking for a double portion anointing and Elijah, I believe, has a groan within him and Elijah is saying dude, you do not understand the crushing, the experiences that I have been through to walk in what I walk in, and now you won’t double. And so in the dream it has this type of feel An older lady I guess I’m older now. I’m not right, I’m a middle-aged, new, you know, 40s to new, 30, whatever, but I’m older in the spirit, with a younger girl coming with me and we begin to. There’s thousands and thousands and thousands of people. We’re pressing through the crowd and I began to realize that I am supposed to be next up to speak and within the crowd there is no platform, there is no elevation of me over everyone else. As a matter of fact, it’s pressing and it’s crushing. It feels like I cannot breathe and I wanna get everybody off of me. And suddenly I have a microphone in my hand.

In the dream, all I can do as soon as the microphone hits my hand is groan and weep and travail, as if there are no words coming out. This young lady’s, still with her head on my shoulder, her head on my chest, and I’m almost like you, don’t understand the pain and the tears and the travail. I have no words for what I wanna say. And in the moment of the groan and travail. Out of my mouth comes this language of Esther. God, you must raise up a generation of Esther’s who will say if I perish, I perish. And I continue to say it over and over three times. Lord, raise up a generation of Esther’s. Awaken the Esther’s who, out of their mouth, would proclaim if I perish, I perish. And my eyes glance over to look at the young lady near my heart and I shake my head and I begin to weep even more. And in the dream, as soon as I look at her, I realize it’s not just about the esters, it’s about the mordecais. God, would you raise up a generation of mordecais? Call mordecais, call the men to the forefront. That would hold us to the charge of being a voice that would say if I die, I die. Because here’s the thing about mordecais.

Mordecai in Esther chapter. Well, mordecai in the book of Esther represents a man who has fathered this young lady, who was actually orphaned, positioned her to go into a place where she can walk out her destiny. And in the beginning it’s painful, in the beginning it’s not what she wanted, she has to disguise herself. But mordecai is positioning her, probably not even understanding fully, for the destiny of a nation. And he begins to realize, when this edict goes out by Haman, that there’s going to be destruction of the Jews, that there’s one sitting inside of the palace that has a voice, and so he begins to call her up and say listen, you’ve got to understand that you’re a Jew. You may be in disguise right now, esther, because her name was actually Hadassah. He had to help her to understand that. Either way, you are going to die. So are you going to die fighting or are you going to die hiding?

And so we need a generation of mordecais that see the anointing on the lives of the women of this hour, that the women would begin to roar the truth of the message of the not just the gospel, but the truth of the message in fullness. If we perish, we perish. Don’t mess with our kids. It’s the hashtag that we’ve been using as we begin to talk about gathering together. I’ll talk about that later in October of next year but the clarion call is that you’ve got to understand that your mouth needs to be opened, but at the same time, we need the men of God to rise up that see the anointing on the lives of women in this hour, those that have been shrinking back and watering down or editing the burning message of their hearts to say no, open your mouth, because they’re going to mess with you, they’re going to mess with your kids.

Listen, we’re seeing, even right now, this, the wildness of war in the Middle East. We’re beginning to see what could possibly be the fulfillment of prophecy within Scripture, and we’re in an hour. We’ve got to understand that there’s chance, such as death to America, taking place in this, in this Hamas thing, and we’ve got to know that. Listen, we’re on the target, we’re on the radar, and so no longer do we get to edit the truth, no longer do we get to edit the message. It’s not pretty, it’s not nice, it’s not. It can’t be boxed up in something flowery. The message of the Lord that’s coming forth right now needs to roar through the mouth of the mama bears.

And, at the same time, we’re looking at those that are with us, these young ladies, these young ones who have had to try to fight all of the oppression of their voice by an agenda that has called them to water down the truth or even brainwash them to an effect to believe that they need to form it and fashion it to fit in a pretty little package, that it’s tolerant. And here’s the thing the pressing and the crushing of the generation that has gone before you, gen Z and Gen Alpha, is looking at you and saying you got to get boldness in your bones, because we don’t even know if you’re going to be able to run with the horsemen. Listen, it says in Jeremiah if you can’t run with the footmen, how will you run with the horsemen? And the horsemen have come that you can’t run with horses if you can’t run with those who are on foot. And we’re looking at you as Elijah’s, as those who’ve gone before you, and it felt the pain and the crushing as women to be silent, to have to edit the message and saying you understand that the spirit of Jezebel that has encroached upon us.

We spent times in our younger years being violent in the spirit and declaring the truth, like Elijah did when the fire fell from heaven on the prophets of Baal, and then we got threatened by an agenda and we shrunk back. But we’re coming back with vengeance. But, young ladies, do you understand that you’ve got a break free of the spirit of the age? Do you understand that you’ve got a break free of the spirit of Jezebel of all the forms and the fashions of the desires for platform. Do you understand that what you’ve been called to and what you’re asking for, the double portion, the voice that shifts a nation, is first in intercession, but then it’s boldness as a watchman on the wall? It says in Ezekiel that you actually have to prophesy in order for the blood to not be on your hands. Do you understand what that will cost you?

But listen, what we need on top of that is not just Gen Z and Gen Alpha to understand. But we need you, men, we need you morticons, we need you with a backbone to get behind us and say this is what you’ve been called to. Who knows if you were born for such a time as this. There’s a groaning in your heart. Listen, women are groaning and travailing, like Hannah. We’re saying God, you’ve got to rescue our generation. Lord, if you would give us a priesthood, that you would give us Gen Z, gen Alpha, if you would give us children that would burn with purity, god, we’ll give them back to you.

But we’re burning and we’re groaning and we’re longing and we need the men of God, like morticons, to come up and say listen, you’ve got to get out of fear. You’ve got to get out of trauma. You’ve got to get out of concern for what the liberal agenda would say to you and step up and be a voice. You’ve got to burn the tide, first in heaven and then on earth. Listen, ladies. We’ve got to be willing to release our children. God’s calling us in this hour. Listen, if you will look at Israel right now, all eyes are on Israel right now and these women are having to release their children to frontline warfare. They are having to release their children to trust in Yahweh, the name of the Lord. Many Christians yes, as well that are citizens of Israel are releasing their children and understanding the cost of war is great, but if we perish, we perish. We’ve got to send our kids into the place that they’ve been called to and this is not easy. This is not easy, dude. I just really took off on that.

So let’s look at Esther 4.16. It says this is what Mordecai says Go and gather Sorry, this is what Esther says in response to Mordecai Go and gather all the Jews to be found in Sousa and hold a fast on my behalf and do not eat or drink for three days, day nor night. I am a young woman and also fast, as you do, and then I will go to the king, and it is if it is against the law. If I perish, I perish. And this was Mordecai’s response. If you keep silent, mordecai says in Esther 4.14, if you keep silent, relief and deliverance will rise from the Jews from another place, and you, esther, and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether or not you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this. So I actually just flipped the scriptures. I read them backwards in my notes, but before Esther’s response with a fast, is Mordecai’s call to lay down her life.

You’ve got to understand. We cannot let the false feminist movement take over and silence the voice of the true warrior women of the earth. In this hour, we’re going to stand for holiness, we’re going to stand for purity, we’re going to stand for protection of our kids. We’re going to stand and we’re going to say if I perish, I perish. We’ve got to begin to understand that God has given us children for war. He’s given us children first of all for spiritual warfare and second of all, to be voices.

In this hour, stop holding back. Begin to teach your kids the truth. Do you know why Israel’s able to send their kids to the front lines of war. They’ve taught their kids the truth. They’ve taught their kids the identity of who they are. It’s not about destroying another nation. It’s about pushing back the Haman. It’s about pushing back the enemy and standing in the power and the intelligence of the divine and knowing that it’s written what is written in the scriptures. These kids know what is written in the scriptures that Abraham and Isaac and Jacob were given a land that they would inherit. That would be a promise that would be fulfilled, that all of the earth would be blessed. They have to believe the truth of the word of God over everything else.

Mama Bears, I’m telling you right now. This is a call to you. You’re looking at your children, that’s laying their head on your shoulder, your spiritual children, your children. They are those that are going to birth for something in this hour that is both for war and also to bring forth glory. It’s for the fire and it’s for the glory.

Stop separating the message. Stop just focusing on the positive scriptures whenever you’re teaching your kids just the scriptures that are tolerant and what you think is love it Lovely. I want you to think on lovely things. I want you to get above the warfare. But I need for you to understand. God needs for you to understand. You must teach your kids the truth.

Listen, I want to tell you this. I was so blown away my baby girls, two nights ago, if you know what just happened? There was a slaughter of children in Israel in two nights ago. My girls were up in the middle of the night, travelling. They did not know why, but they had a spirit of mourning and groaning on them, ages 12, 15 and 18, up in this room that I’m in right now, this upper room of our house, travelling and groaning and weeping, led by the spirit. And I got the opportunity to share with them the next day that their travails and their groans were over what is taking place in Israel.

I am telling my kids the truth. This is what is happening to your kids, to your generation. This is what the scriptures prophesy will happen at the end of the age. We’re walking through the scriptures and then they’re beginning to get a prayer burden. They can listen. The enemy has inundated them with all kinds of filth. We need to begin to release to them all kinds of truth, all kinds of ability to grow in the spirit and intercession. It also recognized that in the hour in which they’ve been born, the time in which they live, that they very likely could have to lay down their life for the cause of Christ.

And if you’re not preparing your kids, then you’re standing in fear Either way. Either way, you’ve got to understand they’re coming after our kids, they’re coming after our families. They came at listen. I don’t even know if I should go there on this live, but you cannot trust the government system, because you’ve got to understand that the governance of the Lord takes place from the heavenly realm. There’s a time that is coming when a war and rumors of war, but also these things, are allowed to take place in order to be able to feel agendas. And so you’ve got to teach your kids the word and the truth and what takes place and how to hear the difference between what God is saying and what the internet and the news is communicating to them. If you’re not equipping your kids, moms and dads, then you’re not really positioning them for what they’ve been born for.

Come on Jesus.

Come on Jesus. Esther had to choose to act. She had to know that her silence would lead to her demise and her generations. So what is our take away from this? We’re calling fast. We’re calling a nation to fast.

I want to tell you what my husband brought up last night Blew me away. Okay, we’re laying in the bed, we’re praying, we’re praying, we’ve been discussing and we’ve been praying. And this is what he said At least in Esther’s hour they, israel, allowed their people to be armed. When Hamans Edic took place, he said at least they were armed. And this just came in and nobody was armed. And this is the thing it hit me so strongly in my heart when he said it. I said but there was an Esther. But there was an Esther in the palace. And if there wasn’t an Esther in the palace, if there wouldn’t have been a mordecai at the gate, it would have looked very similar. You see, I want to know where the Esther is in the palace right now. I want to know where the mordecai is at the gate.

Where are the men that are calling, the women that have the access to be a voice that could turn the heart of the king? I can take you there in an intercession. There’s a voice in the earth that you’ve been called to, to call to be, but many of you are in sectors of society, maybe even governments, that you’re keeping your mouth closed. Some of you need to intercede specifically for those in office. Some of you know women in particular. God’s calling women right now. There’s an anointing on women to rise up, women in particular that have influence, and that you need to call them to the carpet and you need to say listen, you have a voice. What if this whole thing could have been turned if there was an Esther in the kings palace? Or was there an Esther who kept quiet? These are the questions we have to ask, not condemning anyone.

I see all this biblical prophecy proportion of improvising and shaking. For years I’ve been prophesying and shaking. For years I’ve been saying you can’t believe what you read and see on the media. For years you got to come up and get above it. You got to get divine intelligence. I’m just saying right now that this is what is happening and you can’t trust what you see and hear on the internet.

Where are the esters? Where are those that raise their voice Not just on platforms and intercession and groaning, and raising up a generation and raising up the next generation, not willing, like Hannah, to hold tight what God would give you but to release them back to him. Where are the men that will say God has called women to the forefront. Get rid of the spirit of religion that is silencing women, break. Listen. Some of you men know it. Some of you men know your wife’s got a voice and you see, in your, in religious atmospheres that are holding her back, and you need to step up, like Mordecai, and you need to tell her that she’s going to die either way, that she’s going to die with the word in her bones and her kids are going to go with her, or she’s going to have to use her voice.

I want to encourage you. I’m thankful for those of you that are Mordecais. Never has there been a time where you’re more important, and so this can be so many layers and so many levels. The Father, we just thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to rise up, to rise up in this moment. God, let us be willing to give up our platforms, I should say our reputations, for the greater good.

Some of you, I feel it right now, somebody that’s watching me. You have influence. You have influence in a sector that does not believe like you believe, and you’ve been silent. Some of you have been standing for things that you don’t believe in because you’re afraid. You’ve put it on your t-shirt, you’ve put it on your Facebook, but you don’t believe in it, and you’re posting things that you do not believe in because you’re afraid to declare what you do. I want you to know they’re coming for your kids too. If you perish, you perish. Get a voice and get a backbone. Some of you have just been afraid because you’ve been wounded and you’re not in a situation.

I recently had somebody text me and say listen, your husband’s recovering. You’re not in a situation where you can be a voice, or you think you’re not. I want you to begin to intercede for your husband, begin to intercede for your leaders. The power you have, the influence you have in the heavenly realm is unbelievable. I have no idea how the power, intercession can literally turn the heart of a king, and all of us are called to a fast Right now. I want to invite you into a fast, whatever that looks like for you. Fasting moves the heart of the king, but it also kills our flesh. It puts things into right perspective and it causes the heart of heaven to respond.

I know this has been somewhat of a heavy message, but God is raising up fearless voices. In this time, there’s no more time to fear, there’s no more time to be silent or be quiet. It’s time for us to raise up sons and daughters who will be bold and courageous. And you, jen’s ears, you, jen Alpha’s, shake off the fear of man. Get in the word. Prepare your heart, pray in tongues, pray more than you say, so that when it comes out of your mouth it cuts like a double-edged sword.

Mothers and fathers, I’m calling you now to teach them to pray. And if you don’t know how to pray, begin to say God, teach me to pray. True disciples say teach us to pray. That’s where the word of the Lord comes from, the throne ring, not from chat, gtp or Google. You can learn the word, you can use tools, but if you don’t have the word in you, you’re not going to prophesy truth and it’s not going to cut. Get in the heavenly realms and get the word of the Lord and you will be victorious. We’re in the best of the times and the worst of times.

Haggaios says that the earth would shake and the stars would fall, and the stars represent leaders and kings. As the shaking happens, the only thing that’s going to remain is the unshakable kingdom. So go. If you perish, you perish. So, father, I thank you in the name of Jesus.

For those that are watching God, I pray that you would bring forth truth and justice in their hearts, or that you would help use your word in the burning of the spirit of God, to separate from their heart what is emotion and what is the spirit. God, as I pray so often for myself that the word of God is in them, those that know you, jesus, that the word of God is in them, so they would begin to hear your word even in their internal being, that they begin to know the word and let the word know them, they begin to pray like they’ve never prayed before, that they would be built up in the most holy faith. God released the baptismism of the Holy Spirit in fire, even right now. Release the fire, release the tongues, release the action, release the power of the gospel right now. Lord, you said if Jesus, if you be lifted up, you will draw all man to yourself. So, jesus, we lift you up. You were lifted up on the cross in your crucifixion. You bled and you died and you were raised and you poured out your spirit that we could be transformed and walk in the fullness of our sonship.

God, that we would use this declaration, this proclamation that Esther said, not as some kind of fun language, but truly get it in our hearts that we’re going to die either way, let’s die. If we die, let us die proclaiming the truth. Let us not go down without a fight. But, lord, let us also know that the battle is not ours, but the battle is yours. So you give the strategy, you give the battle plan, and when we pray according to your will, it will be done for us by you, father, who was in heaven, that your word run swiftly and it always accomplishes what it was sent forth to accomplish. So release your word even right now to those that are watching me. Strike their hearts right now in the name of Jesus. Open the eyes of the blind. Open the ears of the deaf. Ignite the heart and the soul of that one that has been asleep. Cause the spirit of burning to be released. Speak, lord. Even right now, somebody needs to say speak, lord, for your servant is listening Some of you, mom, is God is stirring your heart.

You’re going to literally going to be flipping the table of your home and you’re going to be resetting it as a house of prayer. Fathers, same thing, you’re going to be setting up the altar of prayer and intercession and teach your children and teach your wives. Teach the word. Let it be washing them with the water of the word. Love your wife, as Christ gave himself up for the church for her. Raise her up as an Esther, raise her up as a bride. Trust the voice of the Lord and the groaning of her heart. I love you guys. Thank you so much again for joining me for this week’s podcast. Go ahead and share it. Listen, share the podcast, but share the message. Let this message get in your bones. I love you again. We’ll see you soon and always remember this is the heart of this podcast Burning messengers you don’t have to burn alone. You’re not alone. In Jesus’ name, I’ll see you soon.

Join me, on this journey into the heart of Yom Kippur and the Feast of Tabernacles, as we uncover the profound connections to the atonement of Christ. We’ll walk through the historical and prophetic significance of Yom Kippur, a time of deep introspection, repentance, and fasting, culminating in the high priest’s holy task of making atonement for the sins of the people. Listen in as we explore the symbolism of the scapegoat and the scarlet thread, powerful symbols that echo the redemptive power of Jesus, our perfect and sinless sacrificial lamb.

As we transition into the Feast of Tabernacles, we’ll experience the beautiful presence of the Lord as he dwelled with the Israelites in the wilderness. We’ll uncover the lessons hidden in the humble tabernacle and the banquet table set by Moses, reflecting Jesus’ invitation to commune with him. In the midst of this, we’ll touch upon Peter’s reaction to Jesus’ transfiguration, reminding us of the sheer beauty and power of sharing a meal with God.

Finally, we’ll immerse ourselves in the glory of Christ as experienced in the Feast of Tabernacles. I’ll guide you through the process of intercession, inviting you to draw nearer to Him, partake in His glory, and break bread together. It’s a profound invitation to set your own table of encounter with Him, fostering a transformational encounter that’s even greater than Moses’s. Prepare your hearts, dear listeners, as we embark on this journey to meet Him away from the noise, ready for the transformation and transfiguration He has in store for us.


Where to dive in:

And so Yom Kippur, the priest interceded, but Jesus continually intercedes, offering eternal atonement through his cross, through his blood. Do you know that it says the blood of Jesus speaks a better word than the blood of Abel? Hi guys, Fiery Revelators, so glad to see you again on this episode of Burning Messengers, the Burning Messengers podcast. I am your host, Tammy Southerland, and we are in the middle of some of the most powerful towns right now. To be honest with you on what is many call the Jewish calendar. So it’s actually what we call God’s calendar, and we live on the Gregorian calendar, which is January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August. But God’s calendar has a little bit different setup. It’s the calendar that some believe began at the beginning of time, at creation, and so, according to the Dead Sea Scrolls, even the calendar that we call the Jewish calendar could be off by about 200 years. But it’s important to know how God works on his calendar for the purpose of the eternal storyline. So we’re going to look at some of these things in the play in a way of legalism. We look at them in a way of prophetic revelation. So Yom Kippur, tabernacles and the transfiguration of Christ at a feast can be super prophetic. So follow along with me as we jump into this revelatory swirl today about Yom Kippur, which would have been September 24th, 25th, the feast of Tabernacles, and the profound symbolism of the scapegoat, all pointing to the redemption of Christ.

So let’s begin with Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur was, or is, a time on the calendar of the Lord that signifies searching our hearts, repentance and even fasting. Many that are Israelites or Jews will fast completely no food, no water during this time. They won’t even bathe, because it’s a time to completely, totally separate yourself and allow the Lord to search your heart, y’all way to search your heart and know you. But it’s also a day saturated with God’s mercy and His grace. It’s a time when the high priests entered the holy of holies to make atonement for the sins of the people.

Now I’m going to tell you, real quick, a little bit more about this priest and how he would actually use what is called a scapegoat to lay his hands on that scapegoat, send it out of the, out of the camp where they were, as a representation of laying the sins of the nation onto this goat, and sending it out in order to remove that sin from the people. And so, in true Jewish tradition, this would happen. It would go into the wilderness and they would tie a scarlet cord or thread around the horn of this goat and they would watch to see if that thread would turn white in order to recognize that God had removed the sin from the nation. It said that 40 years before Jesus is coming, that the and had his sacrifice, him being the lamb that was slain on the cross, that the scarlet thread quit turning white. So that’s pretty significant as we think about what we’re going to talk about today Yom Kippur, beast of Tabernacles and Christ’s atonement for us, the prophetic symbolism. Think about that too. Now, god was already signifying that he was no longer removing the sin of the nation through a goat, but he would bring forth a prophetic fulfillment that would cover the sins of the world all once and for all. But the blood of bulls and goats could not. So Jesus is the perfect, sinless, sacrificial lamb, right, we’ll get into that a little bit more later on.

And so the priest would bathe, he would change his clothes, he would go from his glorious garments that would identify him as the priest and he would put on white linen. And if you look at this and study it out a little bit more. That is very significant. We see this again in the book of Revelation, when the people are presented before the Lord, those that come out of the time of trial and temptation. They are clothed in white linen. You and I are going to be clothed in linen. We see the Lord glorious, white and bright and shining, and so it’s the simplicity of this clothing which is like sort of prophetically wore this for this podcast. It’s the simplicity of this clothing that points towards him being the glorious one. It’s just so powerful. And so he would make his first. He would make atonement for his own sins, the high priest, because he’s would not without sin. As a matter of fact, they operated in a serious fear of the Lord going into this one time opportunity, into the holy of holies, to make a sacrifice for the sin of the people, and he would go through his ritualistic cleansing, physically, in order to intercede on the behalf of the people.

So this intercession piece, I want you to hear me in this podcast and the podcast that come, connecting prophecy to intercession. There is no prophecy without intercession. There is not a prophet in the Bible who was able to prophesy or release what the Lord was saying with being in the place of feeling, experiencing, identifying with God himself and coming to know him and knowing his heart and knowing his ways. And so this was an act of prophetic intercession. It would point towards Jesus, who is our great high priest. Ultimately, he was seeking for reconciliation with Yahweh and the people by laying his hands on this goat and releasing that goat and the sins of the people as the scapegoat on the day of Yom Kippur.

And so let’s grasp this profound reality as revelators, right, we like to get together and swirl in the revelation of God and understand the prophetic side of all of these things, that Jesus is our eternal high priest. Also connect that with 1 Peter, where we are called those who would priest unto the Lord. We’re a set-apart nation. We’re able to priest unto the Lord because we could come boldly to him by the blood of the lamb right Through to the throne of grace, because of the blood of the lamb, the one who would forever make atonement for our sins. So let’s look at Hebrews 4, 14.

Since we have a great high priest who was ascended into heaven, jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith which we profess, the power of our mouth. We hold firmly not just to the idea of going to church, but the faith in Christ as the Messiah, the eternal lamb that we profess, knowing that he is our high priest that has atoned for the blood, the guilt and the sin of us who have received him, and also, in future reference to those who would come into him and receive him and believe him, prophetically even pointing towards Israel, who would receive him as their Messiah before his second coming, because they’re provoked to jealousy as we begin to understand the power of who he is In our lives, our Messiah, our great high priest. Gentiles who we don’t even understand these things, who are able to enter into the revelation of them by the power of the Holy Spirit because we’ve come to know him. Yeah, intimacy, it all goes back to intimacy.

And so Yom Kippur, the priest, interceded, but Jesus continually intercedes, offering eternal atonement through his cross, through his blood. Do you know that? It says that the blood of Jesus speaks a better word than the blood of Abel? Abel’s blood was shed. It says that Abel’s blood continued to cry out, justify justice, justice, justify the sin of his death. Jesus’ blood intercedes on our behalf and on the behalf of those who don’t yet know him. He’s the lamb that was slain from the foundation of the earth, making intercession for us. Mercy, mercy, mercy. Opportunity to come even when we don’t even understand the power of who he is as our intercessor. So Tabernacles, how that connects.

So Feast of Tabernacles follows the day of atonement. We’ll be entering into that on Friday, september the 28th. We’ll be entering into the Feast of Tabernacles, and it is a time of feasting, it is a time of recognizing that he has come to dwell with us, and so let’s think about that for just a second. It’s also known as Sakat. It commemorates when God’s presence was with the Israelites in the desert, in the wilderness. They dewelled in temporary booths, which is why booths or tents are built outside of the house, to remember the time when they had to dwell with God in the wilderness, and it was a time when God would immerse them in the shadow of his glory. He came in and actually brought the power of his presence, and if you know this whole story, it’s really profound, because at the beginning of their Exodus, the voice of the Lord came and invited them near, and they rejected that. They were terrified. They only wanted Moses to go into the mountain, and then the mountain burned with fire, and it was like you know you guys are going to reject coming to me. Don’t come to me. Even your animals will be killed if they approach the mountain because of your rejection of my voice.

And so here’s, I’m going to take us into something even more profound in just a moment. How God always has redemption in his storyline, he always longs to draw near to us, even when we reject that opportunity. And so this Lord cloud is in the wilderness as they’re dwelling out in the wilderness, his presence is there with them to cover them, to protect them and to allow them to know peace and safety and then such a promulgious or a trying time that they were in. And so it carries this profound significance and it also it encapsulates the journey of Moses and the Israelites. It offers us a revelation of not just the tabernacle but also the table, and so these two elements are so important. You see, both the tabernacle and the table in the temple of the Lord. The table is in the holy of holies. It’s a place where Brad is placed for the Lord. It’s a place where you know there’s an opportunity to time with God himself. For them, the high priest is just, if you begin to study this stuff, it just blows your mind, because all of these things are types and prophetic shadows that point towards our opportunity to come totally to the throne of grace, which is where we can receive mercy, but so that we can receive mercy, so we can come and dine with him.

If you look at Exodus 24, 9 through 11, you see the Lord setting a table for Moses and 70 other Israelites after they’ve rejected After the people rejected the presence of God and they have this, you know, time of rejection, where they actually worship other idols. The Lord, actually Yahweh, invites Moses to come up the mountain, and he’s not alone. In Exodus, chapter 24, verses 9 through 11. There’s 70 others there. Don’t set the table.

It reminds me of Psalm 23 when he says and I will set a table before you in the presence of your enemies and I will anoint your head with oil. Your cup will overflow. There is absolutely nothing, nothing that the enemy can do to pull those who are hungry away from the presence of God, because he will chase after us. He will bring us into the intimacy and the beauty of dining with him. So he covers them with his glory cloud and the wilderness he provides for them fire at night to protect them from the cold. Listen, and we’re not talking about wilderness like woods, we’re talking about desert land. Okay, it’s cold at night, it’s hot during the day. And he does not leave them or forsake them, even in their sin and idolatry, and that he takes the 70 and he calls them up. Can you imagine the table of the Lord, god’s table, being set before you In the presence of those that have rejected and they don’t even know it’s going on? And you’re sitting down. This is before the incarnation of Christ, and they’re sitting with him in a table and they’re feasting with him and they’re dining with him and he’s commissioning them and, don’t you know, he’s transforming them. So it carries profound implications for us.

It echoes a table of transfiguration, an opportunity of transfiguration that we see that the disciples get a little foretaste of in Matthew 17, where there’s three that are with Jesus and they’re waiting with him and they’re up on the mountain and then, all of a sudden, they are falling asleep on their watch. They didn’t recognize the beauty of who Jesus was. They didn’t recognize that he was like God incarnate. Right, they thought they did, but they’re hearts, they’re slumbering, and so Jesus is transfigured and there’s Elijah and there’s Moses. And all of a sudden Peter wakes up, wipes the sleep from his eyes and he’s like, oh, wow, I get to be a part of this. Let me build, all three of you, a tabernacle. You see where this tabernacle and table thing keeps coming in together.

Tabernacle is a presence. It’s the presence of the Lord, it’s the covering of the Lord, it’s the place of meeting with God. And then the voice of the Lord comes and is like ah, ah, peter, no, because this is my son, jesus is the Messiah and whom I’m well pleased. Listen to him. There is no other there is. He is not equal to Elijah, he’s not equal to Moses, there is no other. Listen to him, peter, be quiet, listen to him. And so there’s this connection.

I believe even in the table and the tabernacle and the presence and recognizing Jesus as the fulfillment of these things, but also propelling us towards, in the future, a prophetic understanding of that which has not been fulfilled.

There’s a promise of his coming, his first coming. We read about it through the Old Covenant, the Old Testament. We read it, isaiah 53. We read Daniel, we read all of these books that prophesy both of the first coming of Yeshua the Messiah and the second coming of Yeshua the Messiah. And so in this moment, we’re understanding the dining that we get to take to partake in with him, because he is the blood, he is the atonement, he is the scapegoat, he is the lamb that was slain before the foundation of the world. And so this sacred moment not only affirmed Jesus as the Son of God and the promised Messiah in Matthew 17, but it foreshadowed his indwelling presence back to tabernacles so caught. It foreshadowed that, when they came out of the wilderness and they’re celebrating this feast of foods, that that was fulfilled and will be fulfilled as his indwelling presence would come into his people. This is deep cry out in the deep. Who will come near who will draw near.

And so we are the temple of God. He came to transform us into vessels of his glory, invites us into a table with him. John 1.14 unveils the breathtaking reality. Listen to this. And the word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. See, when you begin to understand these appointed times or these feasts of the Lord on the calendar of the Lord, you also begin to come into a deeper revelation of what we would call the new covenant. It’s actually the new winescan. We so often use that language. But this is the new winescan in which you would pour out his blood, his new wine.

And so we begin to understand that we are the dwelling place of God, because the word became flesh so that he could come and to dwell among us, make us his dwelling place. So, just as God tabernacled with his people in the wilderness, jesus came to dwell among us, manifesting the fulfillment of saccad. So why do we celebrate saccad? Well, we don’t have to, but listen. We listen to the revelation that we get to enter into and understanding the fulfillment of these things. There are no longer words on a page. They become the word in us, manifested through us, and even, I believe, at the end of the age, at the end of this time that we live in will provoke the chosen of the Lord to jealousy, because they begin to see how we’re communing with the true Messiah. The fulfillment of these things, as we do them not under the law, but we do them by the power of the spirit, and the power of his spirit will come and transform us through these things. So the prophetic connection here is how this all weaves together for us. So we get to embrace this revelation. We get to embrace this transformation that Yom Kippur points towards the forgiveness of our sins through Christ. It invites us beyond forgiveness into transformation. Just as the Israelites dwell in temporary booths, we are called to be transformed and transfigured by Jesus as we partake in his nature and gleaming from these appointed times Think about 2 Corinthians, 3, 18,.

It beckons us and we all who, with unveiled faces, contemplate the Lord’s glory being transformed into his image with an ever increasing glory. We just sit in that for a minute, unveiled faces. Moses came with a veiled face, comes down out of the mountain it’s the vellus face because that glory would fade. And you and I come with unveiled faces because the glory of the Lord, as we allow him to dwell in us richly will shine, burn through us. As my friend Wayland Henderson says, we become the blessed bread and the poured out wine to those who do not know him. We become a representation of a priest that can go before the great high priest, go before Yahweh and plead for the covering of the sins and the entrance of those who don’t know him into the kingdom, into the family of God. It’s such a powerful thing. So Jesus is the perfect sacrificial lamb.

You think about this scapegoat that was sent out. You think about the 40 years. As prophesier, I should just say the story that is told, that the 40 years before Jesus came, that the scarlet thread no longer turned white, that something was changing. They’re in a threshold. They’re beginning to walk through a time where their minds have to change, their view has to change. He’s giving them time, just like the 40 years in the wilderness, to transform their thinking, to look forward to a fulfillment of this action that they do year after year.

Isaiah 53 paints a vivid picture of Jesus as a suffering servant who bore our inequities. His sacrifice, unlike that of the scapegoat, is perfect and sinless. He atones for the sins of the world. If you have a background in Abrahamic religion and knowing that, abraham if you look at Genesis 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, abraham was given a promise that through him all the nations of the earth would be blessed. So there’s an Abrahamic covenant that actually includes all the nations of the earth. And the fulfillment of that covenant with Abraham allowed for the sacrifice of the Son of God, the perfect one, without sin, to come, to be bruised, to be broken, to bleed. And that wouldn’t be his first coming. There would be another when he comes in the future, that would be victorious and all the nations would be drawn to him. But this Isaiah 53 points towards him, jesus, the one that was sacrificed, the slain lamb before the foundation of the earth. The same lamb that we see seated on the throne in Revelation. The same lamb in Revelation 7, 17,. The same lamb in Revelation 5, where he’s still the slain lamb that makes atonement, the high priest that cries out for the salvation of both Israel, yes, henish male, the Gentile nations, but no one can come to the Father except by him. Let’s look at Isaiah 53. But he was peers for our transgressions First five. He was crushed by our inequities and upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.

As we approach these appointed times, sacred seasons, we got to remember that they’re not mere historical traditions, they’re not just Jewish feasts, they’re appointments with God that open our eyes and paint a prophetic picture for us, those of us that are hard of hearing and hard of thinking. We can’t enter into Revelation without him. There are types and shadows of Christ that would come, yeshua, that would come and bridge the gap for all to come to Yahweh, to know Him. They’d pour out a spirit he would dwell in us and through us, drawing us into intimacy with Him that we could stand before Him and agree with His intercession and His prayers and say that we could bring forth the answer to the groan of creation as the sons of God began to be unveiled and know who they are with unveiled faces, understand that this is an invitation for all to come to know Him.

And at the end of the age, the eternal storyline turns back around the Gentiles who were grafted in. Look at Peter and the sheep that came down. We were the untouchables At the end of the age. We, those of us who are falling, love, sick and love Jesus, coming to know Him, partaking in these appointed times and understanding prophetically that they’re not law for us, but they’re invitations for us to begin to understand in our heart of hearts, to be transformed by Him, to be transfigured at a table with Him, that we become the glory, that we become His glory. We become the bride is the glory right of the husband, her hair is the glory. That’s what it says. We become the representation of His glory to those that do not know Him, as we partake of Him and we increase in Him.

Listen, if you think you know everything there is to know about Him, then you have settled for so much less because we are so, so, so broken and empty and without anything to offer Him in and of ourselves. We’ll spend all of eternity coming to know Him more. This is not just, you know, we don’t just get there and arrive. There’s always more and this is why I love doing this podcast for you guys, because you’re the revelators, you’re the ones that like to jump in, to understanding Him more, and I’m going to label for you, in these next few weeks and months to come, more about prophecy and intercession and how they connect. But this is an invitation into intercession, the intercession with Him, to draw all men under Him, not into us, but he uses us.

The older we get, the more mature we get in Him, the more we realize we don’t know. The more we come to know Him, the more we realize we don’t know Him. And it’s a beautiful chase, it’s a beautiful tension that we get to enter into, and so I would like to invite you and you’ll probably watch this at a later time, but those of you that are watching this within the first 24 hours of its release to come out with us in this teeny, tiny town called 96, south Carolina, september the 28th through the 30th, where we’re going to be actually feasting. We’re going to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. We’re going to set a huge table and it’s going to be a table of encounter, where we’re going to feast together. We’re going to believe God, to take us through the threshold and take us into a transformation as we break the bread together.

Listen, I believe that he wants us to encounter Him in a way even greater than Moses. Right, we come into the blood of the Lamb, we start believing for more as we come out and do 24 hours of worship and prayer. What would he do? How would he move in our hearts if we don’t just do it because we’re supposed to do it, but we do it because we’re hungry and we want Him, when we’re the bride who’s being made ready for her husband, the bride that would be the glory of her husband to shine brightly for her bridegroom. And if you can’t make it out to South Carolina, you can go on the website for more details.

If you can’t make it out to South Carolina, I want to encourage you, with your family, to set a table, to go outside and enjoy just His presence and nature and realize the power of what we have as we enter into Him, realize the power of being able to come in through the blood of the Lamb. We don’t have to lay our hands on a goat. We don’t have to make a sacrifice and have our sins atoned for because it’s already been done. It’s not to give us a license to sin and forget all the things, especially these beautiful things. It’s for us to celebrate. We willingly go and we go away from all the noise with our families and say let’s pray, let’s worship, build a booth, build a tent outside, but more than that, let the Lord restore the family table, the table where we commune with Him and dine with Him, where we’re thankful of who we are in Him, and let the revelation really grip you and get in you deeply.

And so I just want to thank you so much for joining me. I want to pray for you, but I want you to remember that this is about experiencing Christ’s glory, his presence. As you approach the feast, prepare your heart to be transformed and transfigured. So, father, I pray right now for those that are watching. God, that you would bring in powerful revelation and unveiling of this message. I know it’s a lot of information, lord, especially those of us who were considered ourselves gentiles. We’re truly sons and daughters of yours and you’re just kind of taking us on this journey of understanding more of these prophetic revelations as a people in this hour.

I know that it’s happening across the world and we confess like I don’t know everything. I just want to know you. We confess together what you don’t know. We don’t know how to celebrate these things, but we celebrate you, jesus.

I’m asking you to unveil the power of this revelation and those that may be watching, who don’t know you, that may have a background of Judaism or even a background of Islam, god, that you would encounter them, jesus, that you would encounter them as the man in white, that you would encounter them as the lamb that was slain before the foundation of the world, that you were really so much freedom to know you, god, that you would show those of us that live in your presence as those who loved you deeply. God, setting us apart, consecrating us for your glory. God, I pray that you would unveil the eyes of those who do not know you, those that have been blinded to the truth of who you are. This Isaiah 53 will be read and shouted from the rooftops, pointing to the Messiah who has come and will come again, one who came as a suffering servant but will return as a lion who roars. Jesus, we love you so much and part your beauty to those that are watching the spirit of revelation be released in Jesus’ name. Amen and amen Until next time.

Fiery ones, I pray that you have a powerful encounter with the Lord, that you feast at the table with the king, that you keep hungry and thirsting for righteousness and that you let him be the one whom you feast on every single day. I pray for revival in your prayer life, in your time of study and in your family. Thank you so much for joining me again.

My heart’s desire is to see the body of Christ functioning in unity! David writes of a promise of the Lord about this in Psalm, “For from this realm of sweet harmony, God will release His eternal blessing, the promise of life forever!” (133: 3 TPT). Below is an excerpt from my upcoming book, Permission to Burn, describing how we have witnessed this unity manifest firsthand, out of worshipping the Lord!

Over the past few years, God has given me the privilege of traveling and holding 24-hour continuous worship and prayer events with ministry leaders, worshipers, prayer warriors, musicians, and singers from different ministries and backgrounds. He’s given me the opportunity to gather together those who love Him for 24 hours of fellowship in His presence. Through these meetings, we have received such powerful revelations of His desire to obliterate hindrances like denominations, theologies, and religious formulas. During these meetings, the hearts of the people have been knit together so strongly by the power of being in His presence that we use the word family when we talk about it with one another. Just 24 hours of being with our Father together, with no agenda, causes the walls of division to come tumbling down.

Where there is misunderstanding, the Lord brings understanding by the power of His Spirit. This revelation is awakening in the hearts of His people, enabling them to lay down their differences and enter into a place of worship and prayer that brings unity. This unity has absolutely nothing to do with tolerating one another. Instead, it is about allowing the presence of God to awaken love in our hearts for one another like we’ve never experienced before. In His presence, repentance and reconciliation become more real than the air we breathe. This is not fake tolerance or lukewarm political handshaking that appears to be unity but is not. This is real!

In His presence, we find fullness of joy and unconditional love. In His presence, we can reestablish the foundation work that King David set into place when he established a tent of meeting for the nation to encounter the presence of God (see 1 Chron. 15:1–29). King David established day-and-night prayer and worship as the foundation of a place of meeting. In God’s presence, we find freedom, deliverance, and true awakening (see 2 Cor. 3:17).

When we allow God to move through us however He desires, competition ceases. This is why we must learn to minister to God before we minister to people. Corporate worship and corporate prayer, guided by His Spirit, build a movement that hell can’t stop. In this place, we find the freedom to burn together for Him. Making prayer and worship the foundation allows us to love each other with the love of God in a way that cannot be accomplished by mere human wisdom or mental understanding of the Scriptures. This is why He gave us His Spirit—to awaken us to His heart. “‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty” (Zech. 4:6 NIV).

I would love to hear your stories of how you’ve experienced unity in the body of Christ! Comment below!

I believe several in the body of Christ are currently going through a purification process, burning the compromise out of our lifestyles. However, purification requires fire, and this fire offends.

Many years ago, I recall the time I went through a similar experience. Below is an excerpt from my upcoming book, Permission to Burn, describing some of that process! May this meet you where you are and minister to you; drawing you closer to the One called Love—Jesus Christ!

I look back now and see how I was being sharpened and pressed deeper into His heart. I would learn how to pray through deep anguish and to love even when it hurt! I believe that everyone goes through these seasons in their walk with the Lord. I was zealous for the Lord and even when I thought I was failing, the deep inner craving for more of Him continued to grow. I found my entire identity, purpose and destiny in Him, but little did I know that the holy fire I lived in would offend some of the believers I looked to as mentors.

Jesus didn’t come into the world to offend, but offense came. He was actually called the “Rock of Offense” (Isa. 28:16; Rom. 9:30-33). The offended persons, most often religious leaders, justified their behavior because they hated the light and burning that came with the message and person of Jesus. The Light of the World was a flame of pure fire which exposed their double standard and compromised lifestyles.

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. (John 3:17-20)

Often times in the times of pressing and walking through the fire purification we wrestle through offensive thoughts. These thoughts can either lead to repentance, freedom and greater maturity or to fault finding, offense, and judgement. Pause! What’s going on in your heart?

Pray: Jesus grace me to forgive and not harbor resentment, pain and judgement. Fill me with fiery passion for you and those who hurt me because of my fire for you!

Ahhhh! That feels better! Let Holy Spirit do the work!

This is just the beautiful process that shines the glorious light into the darkness of our hearts and the hearts of others around us, as mentioned in the passage above. This fire burns away carnality and leads us into a lifestyle of burning!

The truth is that when we embrace the fire and run to it and not away from it, we will love this lifestyle of purity and holiness even when it hurts! We are never alone!

Beloved, the Fiery One shines so brightly through you when you go deeper into this truth and those who love the darkness can’t help but respond with offense. But know that they see Him and you are being the light in their lives! Do it with His love. Take heart, my friend! If you are experiencing the fire that you have cried out for, you are being formed into His image! You are looking more like your Heavenly Father every day! Be quick to forgive and know they just haven’t embraced the fire yet!

I’m praying for you!

Keep Burning!

Over the past few weeks I have been hearing the longing of the heart of  Bridegroom Jesus calling to His beloved Bride to be “made ready”(Revelation 19:7). He is longing for her to come back to a place of “first love”  passion  for Him above all else! (Rev. 2:4)

In a time of prayer on August 12th, 2015 I began to experience the awakening and passionate voice of the Lord Jesus speak the words written below.

And He said to me “Write the message my beloved and release this longing of Mine! Make ready my Bride; call her to AWAKEN to me in this hour”

This message is an out-cry to the church and to those whom He is raising up to be end time voices in this hour!

Who Has Bewitched You?

I hear Him saying:

“I am the rewarder of those who diligently seek me (Heb. 11:6)! Return to me ( Joel 2:12) and seek Me with all of your heart and you will find me.

They say their churches are for the seekers but I say that they are houses of lukewarmness-a mixture of hot and cold.  The hot gets put out and the cold just barely warmed.  The fire of the longing ones is doused.  Lamps “without oil” are sold to the cold hearted.( See Matthew 25)   I will spew them out of my mouth in the time of judgement (Rev. 3:16). They are “white washed tombs with dead man’s bones inside”( Matt. 23:27). They are seeking but finding something other than Me. I will not share my glory with another says the Lord.

Oh were are the real seekers?

Where are love-sick-longing ones?

Oh were have you gone?

Oh How I long to gather you like a hen gathers her chicks under her wings” (Matthew 2:37)

Why did you go away on your own way?

Why do you reject my messengers?

Why do you look in all other places?

Who has bewitched you My Beloved? Have you not heard?  Have you not seen? Do you not know?

You are my beloved and I long for you!

I AM  here!

I AM in secret in the secret place (Psalm 91)!

COME!  I AM calling! COME!

Return to the deeds you did at first (Rev. 2:5).

Return to your first Love (Rev. 2:4)! Be ye Holy as I am HOLY (1 Peter 1:16)!

Come away with me while there is yet time! Come! (Song of Solomon 2:10)

A Greater Glory for Laid-Down Lovers

Then I heard The Lord proclaiming!

There are some that have laid it all down in this hour.  They long to be lovers laying  down everything and desiring  to be hidden in MY heart.

I am revealing to them the mysteries of heaven– the jewels of heavenly mysteries that will shake the earth. To you I say: “Pull back and write the very pulse of my heart.  For eye has not seen and ear has not heard the things  that I have in store for those who love Me!

Oh my beloved ones, some of you look for me but do not find me.  You are looking in all the wrong places.   I am in the secret places.  I speaking through the mouths of the unknown ones. Through the ones who hide themselves in my heart and under my wings ( Psalm 91)! I am trumpeting the very beat of my heart from their lungs! Do you hear them?

Most of them  are not on national stages, they are still  hidden like jewels in the cleft of the rocks! The are voices crying out in the wilderness places. But I tell you this -the seasons are changing! They are the ones whom I will use to lead a generation into the promise of My coming.

It is time!  They are being revealed, but be aware all ye peoples, they will follow the very whisper of my voice, yes even the whistle the wind of my Spirit.  They will only go where I tell them to go and say what I say.  They will quickly pull back in the seasons that seem to bring them the most fame. They will arise in times that may seem to cause the most upset not caring about their reputation.  They will not take my Glory says the Lord- for they know there is a greater glory in store! I have put a trumpet to their mouths!

Do you hear them? He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says!

They are obedient to deliver the Word in power, in demonstration, but this is merely their adornment says the Lord- for they are lovers of my presence and they are chasers of My Face.

Signs and wonders they do not chase, but they chase after me!

Know this therefore, signs and wonders will chase them down!  Fame is not their desire. They want to take My Name as their own and worldy fame will not phase them! They only  want My presence as their reward and MY Name to be of great fame!

The seasons are changing!

The seasons are changing  and like a whirl wind I AM coming quickly.

In the night- like a thief in the night (1 Thes. 1:2).   I am coming and I will draw all men unto myself.

Come into my chambers, says the Lord.

Who will come?

I am calling you into my chambers! I am calling! COME says the Lord- come to me!

 Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done.  Revelation 2:12.

We are in an hour now that the seeker friendly light shows,  hyper grace messages, and social media superstars  will come to a close. They will fade into the pages of history.  All fame and glory belongs to the Lord!

To whom much is given much is required! In this hour we must die to the claim to personal fame and  take HIS Name, but not HIS Glory!   There is a greater glory! The Lamb is coming and His reward is with Him!

Greater! Greater Glory belongs to the Bride than this world can ever give!

Arise out of the caves you lovers! You longing ones, it is time to sound the trumpet!  But make it your hearts cry to say  “May the Lamb receive the reward of His suffering” 

Come Lord Jesus! (Rev. 22:17)
