I saw a cloud move over the people during worship. Intense light reflected within the cloud, as if it were bouncing. It was very bright – glowing. I saw lightning flashes and heard huge crashes of thunder.
The Lord wants to do a new thing, a change in the atmosphere, a shift in the Spirit.
The Lord will go forth like a warrior, He will arouse His zeal like a man of war, He will utter a shout, yes, and He will raise a war cry. He will prevail against His enemies. Isaiah 42:13
The prophetic is released for not and is bringing restoration. The first restoration is the turning of our hearts toward the Father. We’re caught in the things of the Kingdom, the information of the Kingdom and missing the King of the Kingdom – His manifest evidence of righteousness, peace, and joy in our everyday lives. The Lord says the battle belongs to Him. We have tried to fight the battle with the things; the information the Lord has given, rather than letting Him fight the battles before us.
Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. 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: 5, 6
There are many curses, strongholds and stumbling blocks that we deal with every day because our hearts have not been turned in the right direction. We must assume the posture of a child with our Heavenly Father. A small child does not have to strive to get his father to do those things, which he needs or even desires. It is a father’s delight to give unto his children. Many of us have robbed our Heavenly Father of His delight, with our minds full of information and our hearts full of doubt.
We have walked in a measure of boldness, but now is the time to go forward with bold aggression. We have been bold when faced with no other alternative. It is a time to become aggressive in seeking after the Father’s heart. His desire is for the establishing of His purpose and strategy for the revealing of the next level of His glory. We are to assume a violent posture towards the promises that are yet to be made reality in our lives. The Lord desires to do much in His church and in the earth, but we must first give Him as King the right to rule our whole lives, not just the pieces we are willing to give.
And from the days of John, the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent men take it by force. For all the prophets and the Law prophesied until John. And if you care to accept it, he himself is Elijah, who was to come. He who has hears to hear, let him hear. Matthew 11: 12-15
O Lord my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty; nor do I involve myself in great matters, or in things too difficult for me. Surely, I have composed and quieted my soul; like a weaned child rests against his mother; my soul is like a weaned child with me. O Israel, hope in the Lord from this time forth and forever. Psalms 13:1
It is from this position – the stilled child at rest in the Father’s arms, that we will see the Lord’s desires, not only in us, but also in situations around us. He is concerned with every aspect of our lives. We tend to focus on whatever is in the forefront of our mind and miss the big picture. The Lord desires our eyes fixed on Him and it is from this position, He will do those things He has promised.
