I hear the Lord saying: “I am raising up an army of deliverers! For you have seen how I brought deliverers to the forefront one by one to champion My cause and deliver My people from oppression. But now in this time, I will cause ARMIES OF DELIVERERS to arise as one, putting 10,000 to flight. Joel’s army is arising like the anointed Cyrus with his troops, to conquer Babylon and take back her treasures!”
“The one who comes from heaven is above all. He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. Whoever has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.”
One of the easiest ways to pray is to use the Lord’s prayer as a “template” or starting point for deeper understanding.
For centuries, people have found that praying slowly and intentionally through the prayer Christ taught His disciples brings great revelation.
Through this prayer, for example, we realize that we are children of a Father who is unlike our natural fathers because He is both good and holy. We see that we can approach Him intimately, calling Him “Abba,” which means “Papa” or “Daddy,” a far cry from the religious idea of an angry or unapproachable God!
We learn that this holy Father desires to feed and care for us daily, keep us from temptation and deliver us from evil.
Each phrase communicates something essential for us and can become a gateway into deeper revelation as we pray.
THE MOUNTAIN OF THE HEART
On May 26, 2022 at 2:13 AM the Holy Spirit awakened me, bringing me into what seemed to be an office or “study” where I encountered the Father. I stood by a desk and watched as the Father wrote, with silver ink, letters which appeared both on and over the page.
These “living letters” began circling above the desktop in the Spirit. Wisdom and revelation seemed to saturate the atmosphere in His “office.” I knew that each character coming from Father’s pen had a story of its own, originating in the Father’s heart, and each was very precious. I sensed that these characters represented the many people who make up the Lord’s Bride; each individual containing beautifully unique, redemptive stories of their own.
The Father told me to take one of the silver letters and “eat” it, as I might eat a scroll. As I did so, I was filled with a measure of revelation. I heard the Father say that He wanted members of His Bride to become “living epistles.” At this particular time in history, He was sending certain believers out as emissaries with very specific messages.
I had to look up this unusual word: emissary! I found that while an ambassador may reside long term in a foreign country, an emissary usually does not; instead, he or she is sent on temporary (and sometimes secret) special missions as a diplomatic representative for a government official.
