The Glory Train


I am in tears as I am sitting down to write this blog post.  A couple months ago, I had a vision of people that looked lost and/or homeless waiting for the sons and daughters of God to be revealed. The following scripture was and is so strong on my heart as I believe the Lord is also revealing his heart to me.
Romans 8:19 - For all of creation waits with eager expectation for the revealing of the children of God; for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

The Lord's heart is for ALL to be saved and set free - 1 Tim. 2:4. In order to reach the lost, the Lord is looking for Glory carriers; people who can display his Glory and reveal the true nature of who He is on the earth. In order for his people to be able to do this, they need to first know who they are in Him. 

For those who have fully surrendered their lives to the Lord, he has been able to transform them and get them ready to carry his Glory. They have been learning who they are and whose they are. They have been learning their authority in Christ and their true identity. Hence, they have been able to be formed into a very strategic army like the one described in Joel 2.

This is a remnant army and the first to be invited on the "Glory Train" of the Lord. These are going to be burning out of love of Christ and carriers of his Glory. They are going to go into barren and desolate places with great displays of glory rooted in love and rescue those who are lost and bound by the enemy. Those who were once lost will then be invited onto the "Glory Train" to then rescue others and invite them on this fast moving train.

A great harvest of souls coming to the Lord will be one of the main signature marks of the next move of God. Many others have also prophesied a great move of God that is coming. There have been many moves of God in the past but many have been short lived and scattered. This move is going to be different than other moves. The reason it is going to be different is because, like a well thought out bonfire, the Lord is being really strategic.

My husband is an Eagle Scout. He knows how to make a good fire that will be big and last a long time. When he prepares for a bonfire, he is real strategic in how he lays the sticks and logs and what kind of kindling he uses.

Likewise, the Lord is being real strategic. He has been working in the hearts of his people for a while now; humbling, transforming and calling people to partner with Him by first being willing to take up His cross. People laying their lives down in humble obedience and surrender, people choosing the narrow, less traveled road are like the logs that are going to cultivate the right atmosphere for the fire of the Spirit to burn bright, long and far.

This next move of God's Spirit is also going to be marked by a high level of personal holiness, uncompromising surrender and passion for the Lord. They loved not their lives even unto death - Revelations 12:11. 

Like the wise virgins (Matthew 5), they will have extra oil for their lamps. Through a shared love for Christ, the extra oil will be oil that has been pressed from the lives of the saints that have gone before them. They will also drink deeply from barrels of ancient wine of the Holy Spirit that has been fermenting for over 2000 years and carries the Glory and fear of the Lord.

The ones that are going to be ripe and ready to be initial carriers of God's Glory are those who are able to remain in faith, hope and love even during times of great trial. The fruit of the Spirit will marry the gifts of the Spirit in their lives and great displays of God's Glory; signs, wonders and miracles are what are going to greatly attract those who are hungry for a living, all powerful and loving God!

I believe with all my heart that this move of God is around the corner. The Glory Train is starting to appear from the tunnel with its headlights blaring!

A couple decades ago the Lord told me, "A new day is dawning! What you are about to see is a privilege and others in the past longed to see!

People Get Ready!

 

For over 20 years, the Lord has been showing me a great move of God that is coming. Many prophetic people have also seen this move. What the Lord said to me 20+ years ago is, "You are about to witness the greatest move of my Spirit that has ever been poured out on the earth. Unlike the Charismatic renewal, it will not be able to be contained."

Now, I will be honest, there is a good chance that this move is going to coincide with or follow great tribulation and persecution in the world, but where sin abounds, grace abounds even more (Romans 5:20).

Recently the Lord showed me more about this move of God. He showed me that there is a baptism of the Holy Spirit that we have not yet seen or experienced. The next move of God is going to start with this baptism. This baptism is going to involve wine of the Holy Spirit mixed with oil that has been pressed from the lives of the Saints that have gone before us. I'm not just talking about big 'S' saints but there are many unknown followers of Jesus that have also laid down their lives, either physically in martyrdom or spiritually. Scripture says of them in Revelation 12:11 - They loved not their lives even unto death.

I am now going to borrow a great teaching my husband does about the communion of saints. In Hebrews 12:1 it says, we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses. The word surrounded in the Greek is perikeimai. Basically, it means to be connected or joined to. Think of a 3-legged race. 

Since the saints are connected to us, they do not receive their full reward until we complete our race. And, since we are also connected to them, we benefit from the way they already laid their lives down for Christ.

Think St. Stephen. As he was being stoned and martyred, he saw an open Heaven. Because of the merits of what he did, we will also see an open Heaven in this next move.

Revelation 6:9 says, '"...I saw under the altar the souls who had been slaughtered for the word of God and for their testimony they had given; they cried in a loud voice, "Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long will it be before you judge and avenge our blood on the inhabitants of the earth?" They were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the numbers would be complete, both of their fellow servants and of their brothers and sisters, who were soon to be killed as they themselves had been killed."'

So, what I also believe the Lord showed me  is, just like the wedding at Cana, the best wine is being saved for last. This wine has been fermenting for over 2000 years and is mixed with oil pressed from the lives of the saints.

This wine is about to be poured out. For those who have surrendered their lives to the Jesus, it will be Glorious! This baptism that involves wine from the Holy Spirit and oil from the saints is going to result in an open Heaven, Heavenly encounters and unprecedented miracles. This will empower God's people to be salt on the earth and bring in the harvest!

This oil is going to be worth giving up everything else and purchasing!

Heavenly Oil

 Today is the first day of the Jewish feast of Hanukkah. It lasts until December 18th. Traditionally, it commemorates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after it was won back by Jewish warriors from Syrians who desecrated it. It is also known as the Festival of lights and celebrates the triumph of light over darkness. After taking back the temple, the Jewish people had an eight-day celebration where they rededicated the temple. Tradition has it that they only had enough consecrated oil to light the candelabra for one day but it miraculously lasted eight days.

I felt there was a special significance about it, especially for this year. I believe there is also significance that there is going to be a special Christmas star that will be observable for the first time in 800 years on December 21st. 

The Lord wants us to get ready for and expect the miraculous! We are about to see a significant turn of events that will result in the triumph of light over darkness in the world. 

The Jewish people rededicated the physical temple. The way we can get ready is by rededicating our own temples; our bodies, soul and spirit, to the Lord. Hold nothing back! Give him everything!

This does not mean we have to have it all together. This also does not mean what we give him needs to be elaborate. Think 'Little Drummer Boy'. Everything we have is from the Lord anyway. All he is asking is we offer back the very things we have been given. In exchange, we receive even more.

Like the parable of the wise virgins, we are called to keep oil in our lamps (Matthew 25). The oil ultimately comes from God. We receive that oil by receiving the life of Christ inside us. We receive the oil by allowing Christ to make a home in our hearts through an intimate relationship with him.

We in turn pour that oil out like Mary at the feet of Jesus (John 12:3), making a fragrant offering to the Lord. However, he cannot be outdone. He in turn pours the oil out on us overabundantly!

Recently, in prayer, I saw an oil can with Heavenly oil being poured out. Here is the sense I had with it:

During this season of trial that we have been in, many of God's people have been pressing in for more of God's presence and intimacy with Him. This is paying off! The Heavens are opening and oil from Heaven is being poured out! Where once revelation and healings were harder to obtain, these things are becoming much easier and more commonplace. The veil between Heaven and earth is becoming much thinner and Heavenly encounters more accessible!

Get ready! Like a great Tsunami wave, we are about to witness the greatest move of God's Spirit that has ever been poured out on the earth! We are about to also see a great harvest of souls come into the Kingdom! Get ready for the miraculous and oil from Heaven!

His Ways Are Not Our Ways

 It does not take a prophet to predict that we are probably in for some tough times in this country. The writing is on the wall. No matter who wins the upcoming election, things are probably going to get ugly.

The good news however is that our Lord and King has already won the victory. The very things the enemy intends for evil, the Lord is going to use for good and for His Glory.

In fact, I even saw the Lord taking a sickle and hammer from the Marxist symbol and using it to chisel away ice from stony hearts.

 This reminds me of the days of Moses when snakes bit the people but then a bronze snake was the very thing used to heal the people when they looked at it. 

His ways are not our ways (Is. 55:9).

It is very important that right now we are anchoring ourselves deep in Jesus; that we are abiding in him; that he is our horn cleat so that we are not tossed about when the storms of life come.

The Lord is looking for stabilizing influencers. These are people who have been abiding and resting in the Him during this season and therefore will be able to stand and be a lighthouse in the midst of the pounding waves.

These stabilizing influencers are also going to be carriers of His Glory as they work  miracles of healing and demonstrations of power that are going to lead to the greatest move of God's Spirit that we have ever seen! 

If you have been going through a rough patch in recent years, perhaps the Lord is getting you ready. The more you are able to surrender to Jesus, even in times of adversity, the more anchored you will be in Him and the stronger your spirit will be. Then you will be able to give witness to the hope that lies within you.

1 Peter 3:15 - Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope.

Aslan is on the MOVE!!!

Back in June, I had an amazing encounter with the Lord. He showed himself to me as a lion. You can read about it here.


Yesterday, I had a follow-up vision. 

again saw Jesus as a lion. I was with him and we were on a hill, looking in the distance at the cities of the nations. It was nighttime and the only light you could see was in some homes and buildings. The lion then roared and it was like a nuclear blast that lit up the sky and sent shock waves across the earth!

It has begun! Aslan is on the move!!!

Burning Ones

My husband and I watched an episode of a show called “Cooked” last week. In this particular episode, there was a nun who was an expert in making cheese. She made the cheese in an ancient way, in a big wooden barrel. The FDA had a problem with this. They wanted her to make it in a pure, stainless steel drum. 


The nun complied but noticed that she couldn’t keep e-coli from developing on the cheese. She went back to making it in the wooden barrel and then she didn’t have a problem with e-coli. She discovered that the wooden barrel harbored good bacteria in the grooves of the wood and it would kill the bad bacteria in the cheese. She was able to show this to the FDA and they allowed her to keep making her cheese in the big wooden barrels.


This is also how wine is sometimes still made and has been made for thousands of years. 


We often think the modern way of doing things is best and the more sterile the conditions, the better. In ancient times, however, they understood the health benefits of fermentation of certain foods and drinks. They knew the importance of having good bacteria to bring about that fermentation process.


Let me propose something to you. Even the greatest of Saints were still sinners. They are Saints because they loved God with their whole heart and embraced the wooden Cross of Christ. Therefore, they became like that good bacteria in the wooden barrel, killing the bad bacteria (sin and darkness) by their sacrificial love of Christ and their willingness to lose their own life in order to find it.


People have been saying for a couple years now that God is going to do something new and is about to pour out new wine. It is true that it is a wine that we have never seen before but it is not new. Actually it is ancient. It is a wine that is made up of the prayers of the saints, sacrifices and blood of the martyrs. It is a wine that has been fermenting for over 2000 years, since the first Pentecost!


This is the wine that is about to be poured out on the earth! This is a wine that we have never seen before! This outpouring will go above and beyond all other outpourings. This wine is going to cause the greatest move of God’s Spirit that has ever been poured out on the earth!


The Lord is building an army. This army will cross denominational lines. The ones who will lead this army have been growing in deep, intimate relationships with Jesus; They have been willing to lay down their own lives and be set on fire with His love. They have yielded to God and have allowed Him to work on and transform their hearts. They are willing to be baptized with the baptism of fire (Matthew 3:11). They will be known as the burning ones. This burning will spread like wildfire to the rest of the army. This army is going to be used to pour out the barrels of ancient wine.


To be part of this army is going to require blind trust and walking closely in the footsteps of Jesus. It might even look foolish at first to others but if they will keep their eyes on Jesus, He will lead them and impart to them the faith that they will need to partner with him in the pouring out of this ancient but new wine.


Let the cry of our heart be, “Make me into a burning one in your army, God!!”


John 2:10 - “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”


Joel 2:2 - “...Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army comes, such as never was of old nor ever will be in ages to come. Before them fire devours, behind them a flame blazes. Before them the land is like the garden of Eden, behind them, a desert waste - nothing escapes them. They have the appearance of horses; they gallop along like cavalry. With a noise like that of chariots they leap over the mountaintops, like a crackling fire consuming stubble, like a mighty army drawn up for battle….”

Sovereign Freedom

Today is the 4th of July. I am reflecting on what that means and some words the Lord gave me twenty two years ago, specifically, April of 1998. These words are stirring in me and I believe it is finally time to release them because I believe they have to do with the times we are living in and they might bring encouragement to others.

There are a lot of doomsday type messages floating around right now, both in Protestant and Catholic circles; messages that predict more tribulations coming. 

I do not doubt that there are more things coming, I have seen some things myself. The Lord even said to me once, "Do not be afraid of what is coming. It is necessary for the salvation of souls."

Jesus did say in Matthew 16:26, "What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his own soul."

There is more than this temporal life and sometimes it takes a shaking of sorts for us to come to him. At least it did for me over thirty years ago.

However, I want to also bring encouragement to believers out there. True messages from the Lord should ultimately end up being filled with hope and encouragement even if they start off with a warning.

Twenty-two years ago in prayer, I had a series of images come to my mind as well as the interpretation (I do not always share the process and the images that come to me but thought it would help the believability of the interpretation, as well as show the process for those wanting to grow in their own ability to hear from God).

Here are some of the images: The Declaration of Independence being written, the Union army, a rebel flag, a turtle, a sun rising in the west, an American flag on a flag pole with a cross on it instead of stars, the earth with a big cross that was lying down being lifted up to a standing position, and the last image was of early pioneers from this country watching for the sun to rise and longing to see a new day dawning. Jesus then said, "You will see that new day."

Here is the interpretation of all these images that came to me:

There have been many human efforts to bring about freedom. They have been slow in coming and have often ended in civil war and blood shed. At times we have even retreated inside ourselves at the sight of adversity. But a new day is dawning when there will be a reversal of the order of how things are now. Life as we know it could change within a short amount of time and within our lifetime. It will end up being a glorious new day; the cross of Jesus will be lifted up and the Son of God will be glorified on the earth and in America and He will sovereignly bring about freedom!

I also heard Jesus say to me, "What you are about to see is a privilege and others have longed to see."

Let us partner with Jesus and pray this all comes to pass.
