    BOW LOW BEFORE THE KING

    There is a lifting up of the Lord on High!  We are to humble ourselves…to go low before the King!  Bow and fall upon your faces in His Holy Presence for the Lord is arising in His Majesty and Glory.  Who shall be able to stand but he who the Lord Himself raises up?  Bow low before the King!

     
    Isaiah 33:
     
    2O LORD, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be thou their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.

     3At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered.

    FEAR NOT

    The earth and the heavens are shaking.  All that is not of Me is trembling.  The way of the Kingdom is being made.  Stand fast in Me and all that I have spoken.  FEAR NOT!  I AM with you.  I will never leave or forsake you.  Know the times and do not be surprised by what is coming upon the earth.  You are Mine!  In Me you have all that is needed to overcome anything and everything that comes.  Open your mouth and testify of My love and power, My total victory already won!  Plead the precious Blood over you and yours and all that pertains to you and yours for its wonder-working power. You are safe in the secret place of the Lord Your God…the mercy seat of the Lord Jesus Christ!
     
    Revelation 12:
    11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.   

    AN EDICT OF THE KING

     

    An edict of the King of kings has been issued do you not hear?  He has commanded those from afar…even those who may have been considered your enemies or accusers.  They have been ordered by the King Himself to come to establish and finish the work of the Lord…families established, ministries founded, buildings for the housing and feeding of God’s needy started and completed. He has commanded and decreed, and it is established for eternity.  Pray and decree as the Lord hath spoken for it shall NOW (very speedily) come to pass. 
     
    Zechariah 6:
    15And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.
     
    Ezra 6:
    14And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they builded, and finished it, according to the commandment of the God of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia.

    LIFT UP YOUR EYES

    Lift up your eyes to the heavens from which your help comes!  These are perilous days, and men’s hearts are filled with fear.  But Mine are not to fear the things seen coming upon the earth for I have forwarned you of what is to come and why it is to be.  My Kingdom is coming!  I AM above all and sovereign.  Mine reverently fear and worship Me.  My eye is upon those who trust in, hope in, and wait upon Me!  These do not look to the power or strength of men to keep or deliver them.  They look to Me, and Me alone!  They know their God.  They see Me in My full Majesty and recognize the Light of My glory, my goodness, my mercy and loving-kindness extended toward them as the darkness over the earth deepens.  I say to Mine,  let your hearts rejoice in Me, the Hope of your glory!

     
    Psalm 123:
    1Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens. 2Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.

      

     

    WALK WITH ME

    I AM calling Mine to walk with Me.  But how can two walk together except they be agreed?  It is imperative for you to be in step with Me at this time. You must know My Word and hear My voice and follow none other.  In every instance of decision-making, you must seek Me first.  Otherwise, you will be out of agreement with My word or direction.  You will be operating in the flesh and making decisions that lead you further from Me and even put you in opposition to your Lord.  Spend your time wisely seeking Me.  Align yourself with Me that you may be found secure in Me as events unfold. 
     
    Psalm 91: 
    1He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

     2I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

     3Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

     4He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

     5Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

     6Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

     7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

     8Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

     9Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

     10There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

     11For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

     12They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

     13Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

     14Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

     15He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

     16With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

     

     

    BY MY SPIRIT

     This word is for those who have started a work for the Lord, but it has been delayed…maybe even for years.   You are feeling as if the delay is permanent,  but it surely is not!  This word is for your encouragement today:

     
    Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord!  I have decreed that this work be done and it shall be done!  Look not to the resources of human might or power, but to the unlimited resources of My Holy Spirit!  You must not trust in yourselves or others lest you glory in your own strength.  Not by human intelligence, ablility, strength, or provision shall the work be accomplished,  but by My Spirit.  Look to Me for I AM the author and finisher of your faith!  Trust and depend on the unlimited power and resources of My Holy Spirit.  It is the breath of your Lord that worked at creation, that parted the Red Sea, that gave life to dead bones, and that fills My church.  There is no power that can stand against It!   What I have declared to be shall be.  The delay has not signaled an end,  but only the beginning of the completion of the work that I have provided for and established.  As I have provided for the foundation of the work so shall I provide continually unto the completion of the work.  Speak to any mountain in the way, and declare it to be reduced to rubble before you.  For My grace is sufficient!   As I have chosen you to lay the foundation of the work at its beginning with your own hands,  so have I chosen you to place the capstone on the work at its completion with your own hands. You shall proclaim it as a work of My Grace and give all glory and honor to Me!   Hear the wind of My Spirit for it is blowing new life to resurrect your work today!
    Zechariah 4:
     6Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

     7Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.

     8Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

     9The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.

     10For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

    COMING UP FROM THE WILDERNESS

    You’ve been courageous and obedient to walk away from doors that I have closed to you even though it seems as if it has cost you dearly right now. But I declare to you today that your obedience to My leading has made the way to My new doors for you. I will now open the doors that I have deemed you to walk through. These are the doors that will open up to all that I have promised you. These are the doors that no man was able to open unto you and that no man will ever be able to close to you. I know it seems hard right now, but you are passing through to My new for you! Be patient for just a while longer for you will not be disappointed in what I have prepared. Trust and lean on Me, My beloved, for you are coming up from the wilderness!
     
    Song of Solomon 8:
     
    5Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?

    THE IMPOSSIBLE BECOMES POSSIBLE

    For the past couple of days, I have been hearing in my Spirit……

    DARE TO BELIEVE ME FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE!
     
    The Lord is charging you to be courageous enough and firm enough in your faith in Him to believe not just for the possible, but for the impossible…that which “looks” as if it cannot be done or fulfilled!  He is reminding you that He is the One True God and that with Him NOTHING is impossible.  If He has said it, He will do it!  You have heard right!  Yes, it “looks” impossible, but that is what makes it such an opportunity for God to be glorified.  Your personal infirmities, weaknesses, inabilities, shortcomings, and failings matter not.  God is all-sufficient!  What He has decreed to be shall be done no matter the difficulties or challenges that seem to stand in the way!  God has made the way.  You are the one that He has called and chosen to use in His bringing about of this seemingly impossible feat.  Be sure that He will be with you to strengthen and encourage you along the way.  He will not fail or abandon you to failure in the middle of the work, but will see you through to the successful completion of the work. You must only remain strong and courageous by focusing on the awesome power and might of the One Who has called you!  Dare to believe your Lord…for with Him, the impossible becomes possible!!! 
     
    Luke 1:
     37For with God nothing shall be impossible.
     

    WEAPONS OF DEADLY FORCE

     We are in a time of great spiritual battle.  We are fighting against the enemy to make the way for the return of our King and the establishment of His kingdom.  We know the war is already won and the victory assured in our Lord Jesus Christ.  But the enemy will not concede defeat until his final confrontation with the King of kings.  Until then, we are called to hold our Blood-bought positions and advance forward as and when directed by our Lord of Hosts.  As we sense in our spirit the acceleration of the birthing pangs and the ever increasing nearness of the return of our Lord Jesus Christ,  so too does the enemy.  We who love the Lord are now operating in a sense of jubilation expecting His glorious appearing.  As our joy in His nearness becomes stronger and louder with every tick of the clock, the enemy grows increasingly angry and miserable for it is with great anger and dread that he anticipates this event.  True to his mission to kill, steal, and destroy, the enemy has unleashed his forces armed with weapons of deadly force.  His intent is to kill or render useless in battle as many as possible in hopes that he can somehow thwart the Lord’s plans.  But, the Lord shall not taste of defeat.  As it is written so shall it be…Hallelujah!

     
    Even so, the Lord would not have His ignorant of the devices of the enemy.  Nor would He leave you unarmed against those of the enemy who attack with intent to kill.  You have an arsenal of deadly weapons available for your use.  It is time to arm yourself and defend your positons.  You are part of a well-trained elite militia of the Lord of Hosts.  The forces you face carry deadly weapons of which they have no training or legal right to use.  This only increases the danger that lurks for these bearers of enemy arms may appear somehow less dangerous, but in fact, deadly weapons in these wrong hands are even more destructive.  The Lord is saying to hold your positions and take out all of the enemy’s armed forces that come against you.  Leave none standing to come back and attack you another day.
     
    Your strategy and weapons are found in Ephesians 6 (AMP):
     
       10In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].    11Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.

        12For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

        13Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].

        14Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,

        15And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.

        16Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].

        17And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit ]wields, which is the Word of God.

        18Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).

     

    THE GOD OF GLORY THUNDERS

    You feel as though you are at your Red Sea.  There seems to be no way out.  You can’t go back.  You see no way forward. You can’t remain where you are for the enemy is in hot pursuit.  Cry out to Me, the God of Glory!  My Voice will thunder, and your Red Sea will part!  I did not bring you out to leave you broken and trapped in failure.  I brought you out to deliver you into My promises and plans for you to serve and glorify Me.  I complete and perfect the good work that I have begun in and through you.  I AM breaking everything that the enemy has sent in attempts to bind or hinder you from entering into the fullness of your calling.  My Voice thunders and wickedness is high places comes down.  Mountains shake and move from your way.  The storm clouds release the rains to empower and favor you.   I AM releasing you and ALL that is part of your destiny in Me.  The help you need is on its way.  All the provision, people, connections, lands, buildings, gifts…all that you need is on its way to you!  Even now and as you walk fully into spring, you will begin to see pieces and parts come and fit into place.  What you thought was lost has been found, what you thought was missing is now brought back by the power of My strong hand.  Listen for My Voice and move forward with the thunder!  You will walk across on dry ground for you are being delivered by the God of Glory!

    Psalm 29:

     3The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.

    Philippians 4:

    19But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

     20Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
