This is a lengthy word, but has so much revelation from the Holy Spirit if you will take hold of it. We are living in a time when there seems to be so many negative things going on in the world, but God is saying, “realize your authority and power in this hour”. As I was soaking in His presence on the night of February 15, 2018 I was caught up in an encounter/vision with Jesus. I was in a golden room with Him. I saw Him completely submerging me in a pool of blood- His blood and as He lifted me out, I was dressed in a beautiful bright white wedding gown. I looked into His eyes with such deep love and admiration. I could feel that it was a very mature love. He then handed me a brand new shiny sword that glistened in the light. I had such a tangible feeling of worth and being cherished as I gazed at my groom- Jesus. A few days after this I could hear the Holy Spirit drop the phrase “BREAKING OF THE DAWN” in my heart as I was driving. Just after midnight on February 22, 2018 during another encounter I was arrested by the Holy Spirit and fell to my knees as I was reading a word by Lana Vawser on the death of Billy Graham and a double portion of the Elisha anointing that is being released in the earth. As I was on the floor I was then taken into a vision of being with Jesus on a very high mountain looking out over vast lands. I have been asking the Holy Spirit for revelation because I knew in my spirit that all of these visions/encounters in such a short time frame were related. The following prophetic word is what was released. It is a now word for everyone who will have ears to hear.
Let us first dive into the significance of the golden room. Gold is mentioned in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. It is often used to compare how God’s consuming fire through tests and trials refines us as fire refines gold. It says in Malachi 3:3 NLT, “He will sit like a refiner of silver, burning away the dross. He will purify the Levites, refining them like gold ans silver, so that they may once again offer acceptable sacrifices to the Lord.” It is mentioned several times in the book of Revelations. In describing the new Jerusalem in Revelations 21:18,21, “The city was pure gold, clear as crystal, and its wall was made of jasper. The twelve gates are twelve pearls-each gate made of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, clear as crystal.”
God wants you to know that He knows the trials that you have been through. The losses, the disappointments, the heartache, the feeling of inadequacy, the weariness. He has seen your tears, your anger, your sadness. But God says, “My beloved I have been with you through it all. I see how you did not stop praying and believing. I see how you keep pressing into Me, spending the time in My presence. Even when you didn’t know what to say- you still came to me. Your tears and rendered heart reached me.”
As we look at the vision and the “submersion in the blood of Jesus-by Jesus” I could hear the Holy Spirit ask, “what does the Blood represent?” The blood of Jesus is what has redeems us from sin. It is what gives us the authority over the enemy of our soul. According to 1 Peter 1:2, “God the Father knew you and chose you long ago, and his Spirit has made you holy. As a result, you have obeyed him and have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ.” The Holy Spirit then said, “that is correct and many people know this as well, but when they think about Jesus, they think about the slain Lamb and not the Lion of Judah. It is the hour that people need to fully submerge themselves in the understanding and truth of the power and authority they have because the blood of Jesus that was shed at Calvary belongs to a risen King. Our King wants us to know how He sees us as His bride and for us to come along side Him more than ever in these days with the assurance of who we are in Him. Jesus also wants you to know how crazy He is about you. Just how deep His love is for you.”
The following verses are taken from the Passion Translation of the Bible.
Revelation 2:26-28 To everyone who is victorious and continues to do my works to the very end I will give you the authority over the nations to shepherd them with a royal scepter. And the rebellious will be shattered as clay pots- even as I also receive authority from the presence of my Father. I will give the morning star to the one who experiences victory.
Luke 10:18-20 Jesus replied, “While you were ministering, I watched Satan topple until he fell suddenly from heaven like lightning to the ground. Now you understand that I have imparted to you all my authority to trample over his kingdom. You will trample upon every demon before you and overcome every power Satan possesses. Absolutely nothing will be able to harm you as you walk in this authority. However, you real source of joy isn’t merely that these spirits submit to your authority, but that your names are written in the journals of heaven and that you belong to God’s kingdom. This is the true source of your authority.”
Song of Songs 2:13 Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is a changing in the air.” Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.
Song of Songs 4:8-9 Now you are ready, my bride, to come with me through the archway of trust. We will look down from the crest of the glistening mounts and from the summit of our sublime sanctuary. Together we will wage war in the lion’s den and the leopard’s lair as they watch nightly for their prey. For you reach into my heart. With one flash of your eyes I am undone by your love, my beloved, my equal, my bride. You leave me breathless- I am overcome by merely a glance from your worshipping eyes, for you have stolen my heart. I am held hostage by your love and by the grace of righteousness shining upon you.
It is our choice to accept Jesus as our Savior and King and worship is an extension of that acceptance and act of gratitude for what was done on our behalf. As it says in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” We must realize and awaken to not only the love that we are given, but open our eyes to the vast revelation of who we are in Christ and the Spirit of God that is in each of us as a result of the choice to accept Jesus. We are royalty. We are children of the Most High King. We are the bride of Christ. He is saying , “Arise my bride and take your rightful place beside Me that you have had all along. I Am calling you even deeper though as you awaken to who you are. I want you to come up higher. Elevate your eyes as you elevate your heart towards Me. It is a new day and the harvest is ripe for the taking.”
