4:08 a.m. is definitely not my time to be alert as this was happening for several days I began to ask questions. My question – was okay, God this is something, let me know what you’re saying.
Mondays, I attend an early Morning Prayer meeting, which means I have to leave my house at 4:45 a.m. to be there on time. As I was taking the garbage can to the street, I noticed a flashing white light in the distance. The weather was overcast with a good bit of fog and I was not fully awake. My senses were puzzled about the light. It was flashing on a regular interval and my first fuzzy thought was – it is too bright to be an airplane. It took me a few minutes to determine that it was stationary and then much later it registered with me that it was the light on a cell tower.
During the prayer meeting, I saw a vision of a boat tossed about on stormy seas with large birds circling overhead. The birds were like the buzzards or vultures I had seen while on a trip in Lima, Peru.
There was a common connection with the events, but at the time, I could not see it, there wasn’t anything clear until I had a conversation with someone regarding my plans for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday.
We all have seasons and storms in our lives, many of them are so designed to cause us to move from one level to another, but in the midst of the storm we can lose hope and become heart sick. God’s Word and presence is always with us, a beacon of hope – His light. We may be tossed; feel as though we’re sinking, wondering if we’re in the right place, questioning and at the time not able to see the light, or Him in our circumstances, but we can know that He is fixed, stationary. He has promised never to leave or forsake us. On a clear day things can appear one way, such as the cell tower in the distance from my home. In the midst of the fog, it appeared to be moving, but it was a fixed immobile object.
The things the Lord has placed within us – our hopes, dreams and desires can and are affected by the situations and circumstances of life. If one were in a small boat in a large enough storm, all one would be able to see would be threatening waves and the darkened sky. Many times, we have the ability to see are those threats and hindrances to moving forward.
During those dark times where there seems to be no forward momentum or clear direction is when the birds of prey come to snatch the seeds, the Word of the Lord. The enemy unleashes the birds through the words our friends, family, circumstances and events to cause His words and His promises to us to become of no thought or value. We begin to feel overwhelmed, as our promises look impossible. We all have relationships, patterns or circumstances that want to hold us in old places. They seek to draw us back into old thought patterns and ways of responding or reacting, causing us to lose sight of His word or vision.
The enemy is ever watchful, always looking for something to cause us to question what the Lord has said, “Hath God said?” or to cause us to give up by saying “I thought …” bringing fear. He has effectively stolen, killed faith and destroyed the hope for fulfillment. Fear and doubt come from walking under the law rather than His grace. God has called us to walk by faith and not by what we see, feel or experience. It is in faith, by faith and through faith that we will see the promises of God fulfilled. God uses the storms of life to draw us into His presence and the enemy uses the very same things to drive us under the law and into discouragement.
The Lord’s words and promises to us are like the cell tower, fixed, immovable, sometimes clouded and shrouded in fog, but as we continue to look to the Lord He will allow us to see His light. It may not appear steady, we may be puzzled or even confused by it, but one thing we can count on – it is always fixed. He’s not going anywhere.
We have experienced healing in many areas, but we also have a need for wholeness, to be made whole – complete and fully restored. Because of the cross, healing has come, but we are also buried in Christ and then move on to resurrection in Christ. It is like taking out the garbage it may still be there for a while, but then it is gone, the truck comes and it is picked up. By faith, we are seated with Him in heavenly places. In the areas of life that have been taken to the cross, buried in Christ, but not raised to the fullness of life and life more abundantly that become targets during season of trials or storms. The enemy delights in using the words of friends, family and our own thoughts to cause us to doubt. These can be like the birds feeding from dead flesh, snatching away the promises.
There are seasons established by the Lord to bring us into the fullness of what He has already accomplished for us. We focus on the cross as we should, but we are to look further, seeing Him seated in the heavens, ruling and reigning. We are continually moving into being established in Him and seated with Him in heavenly places. When we see ourselves seated with Him His enemies become His footstool. Wholeness could be defined, as having the faith to know that if God said it, He will fulfill it, regardless of what we see or do not see.
In order for us to have life and life more abundantly, we are to move beyond the cross. Many of us have willingly taken “our stuff/garbage” to the cross, repeatedly. It was when Jesus descended in order to ascend that He took the keys to death and hell. God gives us the keys to life as we confront our issues through the cross, moving beyond to seeing them buried and then on to resurrection in Christ seated with Him in Heavenly places. It is in the heavenly place, in His presence that we become whole, fully restored to His plans and purposes.
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever. Isaiah 40:8
I delight to do thy will, O my God Thy law is written within my heart. Psalms 40:8
So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11
You have tried my heart; You have visited me by night; You have tested me and You find nothing I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress. Psalms 17:3
The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, but the LORD tests hearts. Proverbs 17:3
And He spoke many things to them in parables, saying, “Behold, the sower went out to sow; and as he sowed, some seeds fell beside the road, and the birds came and ate them up. Matthew 13:3-4; Mark 4:2-4
They have closed their unfeeling heart; with their mouth, they speak proudly. They have now surrounded us in our steps; they set their eyes to cast us down to the ground. He is like a lion that is eager to tear, and as a young lion lurking in hiding places. Psalms 17:10-12
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that your brethren who are in the world are accomplishing the same experiences of suffering. And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you. To Him be dominion forever and ever. 1 Peter 5:8-11
“The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly. John 10:10
The Lord was walking towards me as I was standing on a street in heaven. He came closer and closer; when He was about fifty feet away He leaned over, placed His cheek on the street, and blew. His breath blew gold dust all over me. It was as though I found myself wrapped in a cloak of gold. My face and hands were covered.
The pathway was narrow and the door before us was small. He led me through doors, which He unlocked, with large golden keys. Some of the doors had several locks. The door opened inward; as we walked through, He told me the keys would unlock everything that was before me. I entered into a broad place that was full of everything I had ever seen or could imagine. Many things in this place I could only distinguish their general shape, but I did not know what they were. He told me they were things yet to come: “witty inventions” that had yet to be released to men. During this encounter and walk with the Lord, I was wearing shoes, which seemed significant at the time.
Gold represents His glory and His provision. Gold didn’t seem to have a lot of value in heaven as the streets are paved with gold. On earth, gold is very valuable; our economic system was on the gold standard. Gold also represents riches and honor.
He has covered us with the glory of His presence. He will meet all our needs according to His riches, not according to what we need, but by what He possesses. He will honor us before those who seek Him and He will esteem and validate us before those who seek to bring dishonor, hurt or disappointment into our lives.
He is leading us to a place in Him where we not only receive what we have need of, but we will receive those things we haven’t even dreamed of as they do not exist yet, except in the heart of God. He is bringing us to a place where we can receive the impossible.
Our feet are to be shod with the preparation of the Gospel we will walk in His word. We are in preparation for the places He has ordained before the foundation of the world. We are to be ready in season and out of season.
Golden keys are the words that unlock our purpose and destiny. He has given us authority and dominion and as we speak His words by faith. His words will unlock those circumstances and events in our lives that previously we have not been able to overcome.
To cross into the new our heart and mind are to be in the right place at the right time and in the right condition.
We must shift our focus from lack, need or requirements to what the Lord is doing and has said. When David numbered the people, he displeased the Lord as he was looking at his assets and circumstances not at the promises. We are not look at what we have or don’t have but to the Lord.
Now David’s heart troubled him after he had numbered the people. So David said to the LORD, “I have sinned greatly in what I have done. But now, O LORD, please take away the iniquity of Thy servant, for I have acted very foolishly.” 2 Samuel 24:10
Fatherlessness has opened a door for a poverty spirit to come in a rule through curses on the land – areas of promised possession. There must be a rising up of fathers in all arenas that wield influence – church, family, government, finance… We must also become willing to be fathers – grow up!
“And he will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the land with a curse.” Malachi 4:6
Favor of open doors, open heavens and open gates, we must have a personal encounter with the Lord, know Him as King and not be willing to let go or turn back. We are to be known as people of favor.
Yes, he wrestled with the angel and prevailed; He wept and sought His favor. He found Him at Bethel, and there He spoke with us… Hosea 12:4
And I saw heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True; and in righteousness He judges and wages war. And His eyes are a flame of fire, and upon His head are many diadems; and He has a name written upon Him, which no one knows except Himself. And He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood; and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies, which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. And from His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may smite the nations; and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:11-16
Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in! Psalms 24:7
There is a release of the servant prophetic voices equipping and activating the Saints in the building up, edification and exhortation the Body so the Body can function in the work of the ministry.
And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him, who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by that which every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. Ephesians 4:11-16
But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification, exhortation, and consolation… Now I wish that you all spoke in tongues, but even more that you would prophesy; and greater is one who prophesies than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may receive edifying. 1 Corinthians 14:3, 5
We’re to cooperate and co-laboring with the Lord Himself to establish a place for His glory to abide.
Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain. Psalms 127:1
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and make Our abode with him. John 14:23
Recognize the Lord is doing a new thing, not look to the old established ways, He is raising up new leaders and we are in danger of missing our connections if we do not have a renewed mind and recognize what is in front of us. We are to have a new way of seeing, by His Spirit.
Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. “Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19
We must abide under the shadow of His wings. I saw two visions regarding wings: Missiles under the wings of a fighter jet and baby eagles tucked up under the wings of a huge soaring eagle. As I looked at the fighter jet from above, the missiles could not be seen due to the wing and when looking from underneath I could not distinguish the missiles due to the shadow of the wing. I saw the same thing with the baby eagles in relationship to the eagle’s wing. The enemy comes along side and wants to deceive us into thinking we can be seen as he is on our level and he has power to harm or hinder us from moving into our destiny. He does not have eyes to see us as we are hidden in the Lord.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust!” For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper, and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings, you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. Psalms 91:1 – 4
We must make a shift in our perspective to see ourselves in His presence experiencing His pleasure.
Keep me as the apple of the eye; hide me in the shadow of Thy wings, Psalms 17:8
I’ve been awakened several times from a sound sleep by the ringing of a doorbell. There is no one at my door. As this has occurred several times, I began to question the Lord regarding the meaning and the timing. He is standing at the door, ringing, knocking desiring to come in and have those intimate times of fellowship with us. It is in His presence that we will have the courage, faith and boldness to cross over in to the New Beginnings He has for us in this season. We are to be in the position to respond so we do not miss our connection. We are much like Abraham during this season going out, leaving, but not knowing the destination but continuing in a walk of faith toward the promises. It is the season for crossing over into our promises and possessing them. What we have believed in faith is to be made a reality in this season. It’s is time to leave the old behind and step into the new, not knowing, by faith and without fear. We are not to be intimidated by the enemy or our old ways of thinking.
My vision was drawn to many small fires surrounded the region, Atlanta, GA with glowing embers, but with no visible flames. White moths fluttered, drawing closer to the light of the fires as the area was engulfed with darkness. The sparks ignited smoldering embers. As they sparks flew they appeared as line connecting one to another.
As there is a coming together of the small fires, the coals or embers will catch fire and there will be increasing light coming from the flames. As those who are clothed with righteousness, they will be like moths drawn to the light of the flames. Many sparks will come and ignite the smoldering and dormant embers. The things that have come against the righteous in the past seasons to extinguish the fire will come to be seen as that which is sustaining or enabled the coals to continue smoldering not extinguished.
Fire-starters will begin to burn again and as they go from place to place lines will drawn. Those who are neither hot nor cold will have a choice to burn bright or to die down to burn in another season. God is calling forth the fire-starters; all who choose may enter into a season of acceleration. As connections and alignments form, a net will be woven drawing many into the Kingdom, out of darkness becoming seekers of the light of the Lord’s presence.
I AM a God of times and seasons. My desire has been for you to know the times and seasons of your God.
You have known the season of My salvation and the times of My deliverance. Know I came and I sought you – the pearl of great price. Yes, the cost was high – all I held dear and precious, My Son. Your freedom and liberty was purchased with a price for I had a plan and I have a purpose. Salvation and deliverance were not without price on your part as you transitioned from the old and became a new creation in Me. You’ve given me your whole heart.
Yet, there was and is a hunger and thirst, which cannot be satisfied. You’ve longed for something more not even knowing what the more would be. I have seen your heart’s desire. It was time to know Me as Lord. The transition process seemed long, like a never-ending trial as you came to know Me as Lord, a Father of love. You came, even at times trembling with fear as you saw those things within your own heart in the light of My presence and love.
Deep within your spirit, you have known Me as savior and have seen Me become the Lord of your life, a loving Father in your circumstances and calling. There have been times and seasons of wilderness experiences. You have been faithful to dwell with Me in the desert where all your hopes, dreams, and desires have been placed on the altar as nothing would satisfy the hunger and thirst for more of My presence – to know Me.
It has been in this desert that I have begun to cause the rivers of living water to flow from your midst. Even in the midst of My life flow, there is still a hunger and a thirst for more. There came a time of looking inward and a time of examining your own motives followed by a purifying fire. At times you questioned – how can I possibly be in the midst of the river and in the fire at the same time, how can this be? This has been a time of bringing things into focus and looking for more, looking forward.
It is time! Know I AM is the more you desire. This current transition is bringing you to the place of desiring to see Me face to face, to behold My beauty. To know the intimacy I have longed for us to share.
It is time! For I now will reveal Myself as the King of Kings. My Kingdom is within you. As you know Me as King, you will see the fullness of My Kingdom, here, now, today. I say it is time for the King of Glory to revealed releasing the Power of the Kingdom, the Riches of the Kingdom.
It is time! Transition has been long but as you see Me in the fullness of who I AM the pain, desolation, and frustrations of the wilderness will be forgotten in the light of My Glory. It is time to see Me as I AM. It is time to see My power.
My doorbell has been ringing in the early morning hours, this has happened several times in the past six weeks with no one at my door. My clock said 5:35 and my brain said half-past six plus five, which is very unusual thinking for me regarding time. As I pondered this, I sensed the Lord was speaking to me and to others who are in this season of transition.
I am bringing you full circle for a new beginning and it will be My choosing, My time with My grace. It has been My grace that has given you the perseverance to see you through to this point. I did not bring you this far to leave you or not to fulfill My promises. It has been grace that has seen you through this season and it will be My grace that carries you forward. You are in the process of your mindsets coming to the cross and walking away with a new perspective. I am renewing your mind day by day. You cannot enter into the plans I have for you in the days ahead with your old ways of thinking and your old ways of seeing. Your thinking governs your actions. I am rousing My army.
I desire to enter the door of your heart with a renewing and refreshing that will bring you strength for what lies ahead. Know that I have already given you the victory. My army will come forth with My heart and mind, not according to the plans of man. I am bringing you full circle to the place of my calling, choosing and destiny. This is the place where your heart first encountered Me. Come to the beginning of grace, which is resting in My presence and I will cross you over into My presence, My promises and My provision. With your new perspective, you will have clear vision and can see what was previously unseen. You are closer that you know, closer than you can see with your current perspective. Look up, draw near and I will show you great and mighty things. I will show you things yet to come.
Some further thoughts:
Five = grace
Three = Trinity, the fullness of Christ
Five +Three + Eight = New beginnings
Six = Man or mans ways
Three is half of six – Six is the number for man
And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings perseverance: and perseverance proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:35

Now is the time to be released. I release you as My voice to this area, this city and to the nation. Your time has come. As you step out in faith with boldness, you will see Me bring the changes and connections you have longed for and desired. Yes, you’ve been held up and things have seemed as though this day would never come, but I say unto you that I have raised you up for such a time as this. Go forth with boldness and with the courage that comes from walking close with Me day by day. You’ve longed for My presence and I say I am with you. Look not to the right or to the left and lean not to your own understanding. I will fill you with faith and you will have understanding, but know that it will be My understanding that will move you forward. You will move forward as one with boldness; sure footed, as you know that I am leading and guiding your footsteps along the path. Though the path appears treacherous, know that I will cause you to place your feet in such a position that will give you the stability and the strength required to go forward.
Look not to the situation and do not be dismayed by the circumstanced in which you find yourself as I truly say things are not what they appear. You cannot navigate this season by what you see with your eye, but only as you see with My eye will you see the way. I am making a way for you to cross over and possess. These are the days of demonstration rather than hearing. Go forth from My presence in boldness and confidence, trusting in My Promise and not in what you understand. I will unfold My plan and give you understanding, as you need it. I will not give you what you need tomorrow today for I will cause you to walk with Me in the midst of each day with what you need for that day.
I am bringing you to the high places with Me. I am bringing you to a higher place of trust. Lean not to your own understanding, but trust and I will bring you to the broad place where all that you have longed for will be manifest. You will go forth from My presence with the power of My Holy Spirit and the boldness of the lion that I am. For I am revealing Myself to the prophets and I have roared – who can hold back what I am saying; hold not onto the words I give you, but speak them forth with courage and boldness and I will bring about great changes in you, in your surroundings, your city and in your nation.
Know that I am establishing My kingdom promises and you will see the fullness of all I have promised. I came to bring freedom and liberty. You have known My freedom, but now you are crossing over into a season of walking in My liberty.
A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy? Amos 3:8
So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17
Linda was born in the mountains of Colorado she discovered her gifts and abilities, she developed a passion for others, to know their gifts and abilities. She is constantly seeking clarity in her own life and realized it is something that she can give away to others.
