I Love to Tell the Story

a dream by Julie Meyer

An Invitation to Intercession

God is stirring His people to pray. God is raising up houses of prayer, prayer movements, and ministries who realize the great need for prayer and for having foundations of intercession firmly established before ministry takes place.

People are bowing their knee in reverence to our Holy God, believing that He gives more when we simply ask. God set it up that way – that we would be co-laborers with Him, joining Jesus the Great Intercessor. We are simply to ask – knowing that God is listening and answering our simple prayers (Isaiah 64:4).

The revivalists of old were men and women given to prayer. Before a Word was preached, the Heavens were stormed with prayers and petitions asking God to come, to act, and to move. We are now entering a new era – for never before in history has God moved on the hearts of people worldwide with such an invitation to intercession.

Across the nations of the earth, men and women, young and old, are giving their lives as a fragrance before the Lord in day and night prayer. Houses of prayer, prayer movements, and praying churches are arising worldwide with the revelation that God moves when His people simply ask.

A Great Greater Awakening

I heard a fresh cry exploding out of Heaven – an invitation for the nations to become part of the prayer movement that is blowing across the face of the earth like an unstoppable wave leading to a  Great Greater Awakening.

I was told in the dream to study and look back to the 1700s and the first Great Awakening – for this is our story. We are invited to say “yes” to prayer – we are invited to all become part of the story.

I saw that many intercessors have grown weary and have become dull; therefore help from Heaven was sent to strengthen the heart of the intercessors, the prayer movements, and the houses of prayer that a glorious people would arise in unending prayers.

We are in a Revelation 3:1-2 time frame, “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain…”

God is inviting us to join His Son, the Great Intercessor, in prayer to birth His purposes on the earth. He is inviting us to be a part of the storyline of the ages. We are to be vigilant, to keep careful watch over His promises and purposes through intercession, to set our hearts towards Him, and to turn resolutely in the direction of agreement with His Heart for these days.

I Had An Impacting Dream

I was in a deep sleep and the dream started with the President of our Bible College singing an old hymn called, I love to Tell the Story.” His voice was like a mega phone awakening my heart to the old, old story. I had not heard this hymn in years since singing it as a young girl in the Methodist Church. He was wearing a blue suit and holding an old hymnal. His voice was loud. His voice was strong. He never stopped singing this old hymn throughout the entire dream.

As he was singing, these words and this melody awakened my heart all throughout the dream. It was as if the hymn was the backdrop to the entire dream.

Suddenly, I stepped into a scene where I saw seven ambulances all in a row with their lights flashing. They were lined up one in back of the other. There was great alarm in my spirit when my eyes beheld such a scene.

I noticed there were people on the sidewalk who were not that interested in the ambulances. Everyone was continuing to have their coffee and were talking – they were not looking at what was happening. People were just doing their thing and not bothered by the alarm that I felt in my body by the flashing lights. It was as if they did not even notice they were there. They were laughing and talking and having coffee, going about their day-to-day schedules.

Still the Song Was Arising

I love to tell the story. ‘Twill be my theme in glory. To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.

I went and looked in the first ambulance and heard the attendant say, “I cannot find a heartbeat” and I saw someone lying still on a gurney. I saw tiny, thin, and feeble legs. The attendant looked at me and said, “It’s the intercessors. We are trying to revive the intercessors.”

I looked in again and it was as if the eyes of my heart were opened and I could see on the inside, and their hearts were failing. For the promises of Revival were so long in coming, it was as if the promises became too long to wait for and they were giving up and their hearts were failing. So I ran to the next ambulance and the same thing was happening. I looked in and the attendant said, “I cannot find a heartbeat.”

As I peered into the ambulance I noticed that these attendants were not mere human beings; they were heavenly beings sent from the Throne of God. They were tall, they were large, they were glowing as if lit from the inside with fire. Could these be the messengers of fire we find in Psalm 104:4? It gave my heart great hope to know that God has sent His angelic help to restart the hearts of the weary, the tired, the hopeless, and the feeble. These were the intercessors who have fallen asleep, those who have stopped contending because it became too long to contend.

Suddenly, one of the attendants from the seventh ambulance at the end yelled, “I have a faint heartbeat,  but it’s dull.” With those words, all the attendants leaned out of the back doors of the ambulances and they all shouted, “What did you do?”

The attendant in the last ambulance said, “Tell the old, old stories. For, as I began to tell the old, old stories, I found a faint heartbeat.” So the attendants of the other ambulances began to tell the old, old stories, and I began to listen to these stories.

Tell the Old Stories!

These stories went back to the 1700s. They began to talk about Count Zinzendorf and the Moravians, John Wesley, George Whitfield, and Charles Spurgeon, and many others.

Suddenly the atmosphere was filled with shouts of, “I found a heartbeat, but it is dull.” I ran to another ambulance looked in, and this time I saw a faint movement. Suddenly, this Heavenly attendant gave an order, like a command, saying:

“Tell the old, old stories because the old, old stories are YOUR storyline, they are YOUR history, back as far as Count Zinzendorf and the Moravians, John Wesley, George Whitfield, Charles Spurgeon

…For the baton was passed from generation to generation. The prayer movements of this day are the answer to the prayers of those in the great storyline of the ages. There is a timeline of Prayer Generals from generations past and their prayer was that the Generals of prayer in ‘these’ days would arise; the prayer movement of ‘these’ days is the answer to their cries.

“You are in the storyline of the old, old story for their prayers begat your prayer. Put yourself in the timeline of the old, old story because the old, old, story – when told – will ignite the heart again.

Though it will start as a dull beat, when EACH person will see themselves in the timeline of the old, old story, that dull heartbeat will begin to get stronger and stronger.  For these are your ancestors – the prayer warriors of the ancient days – who lifted their cry for ‘this day and this hour’ that a people of prayer would arise in the earth to welcome back the King of kings.”

Renewal in itself will not awaken dull hearts. But if you see yourself in the old, old story – the more you listen and put yourself in the history of the great storyline of prayer and revival – you will see yourself as THE ANSWER.

You are the continuation of their prayers. For the intercessors God is raising up today – the prayer movements in the earth today – are the answer to the prayers lifted up generations and generations ago taking us into the greatest awakening – the Great Greater Awakening.

These are Your ancestors. YOU become the story, the plan, the answer, the Revival for today – then you will never go back to dull hearts.

And the Attendant Spoke Again

“Tell the old, old stories. Remember the old, old stories and see yourself in the storyline of Count Zinzendorf and the Moravians, John Wesley, George Whitfield, and Charles Spurgeon, and many others who were great men and women of prayer – Charles Finney, Maria Woodworth-Etter, Smith Wigglesworth, Aimee Semple McPherson, Kathryn Kuhlman…”

You are IN their story. Their History is YOUR history, for you are the answer to their prayers:  for a glorious and praying people,  a shining and praying Bride,  would arise in the earth who love prayer;  and this cry of prayer will birth the Great Greater Awakening to welcome Him back.

I Could Still Hear the Song Being Sung:

I love to tell the story   ‘Twill be my theme in glory   To tell the old, old story   Of Jesus and His love

It was almost as if I could hear prayers that were prayed centuries back – crying out for those who would take the baton to begin to cry out again until the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

You are a part of the story. We are a part of the story. It’s almost as it we are the answer to the cries of prayer throughout the ages. Cries that said, “Let a people who love prayer welcome Him back.” Let a praying people lift their voice for revival – let a billion souls come into the Kingdom.

This is our story. This is our history. This is our season to take up the baton and pray,  and then, watch revival spring up. We are in their storyline and they are in ours.

Aimee Semple McPherson’s life was marked by unprecedented boldness that said, “Let’s not waste our time quarreling over methods and doctrines.”. She accomplished what no man had been able to do and build a temple that seated 5,000 people and filled it four times on Sundays and twice weekly. This temple became the envy of Hollywood theater owners. She also ministered at highly sought-after healing services. She reached the unreachable and opened doors for Christ through which no man had gone before through the media. It is interesting to note that in the same year Aimee was launching her radio station, Kathryn Kuhlman was just beginning to preach as a teenager, and Maria Woodworth-Etter had just breathed her last breath at 80 years of age.

This is our story. This is our history and the joy of the journey ahead  through prayer; and we put ourselves in the great storyline of the ages to welcome the Great Greater Awakening and to welcome Jesus the Coming King.

I Love To Tell The Story

Text: Katherine Hankey, 1834–1911
Music: William G. Fischer, 1835–1912

I love to tell the story of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love.
I love to tell the story, because I know ’tis true;
It satisfies my longings as nothing else can do.

I love to tell the story, ’twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.

I love to tell the story; more wonderful it seems
Than all the golden fancies of all our golden dreams.
I love to tell the story, it did so much for me;
And that is just the reason I tell it now to thee.

I love to tell the story, ’twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.

I love to tell the story; ’tis pleasant to repeat
What seems, each time I tell it, more wonderfully sweet.
I love to tell the story, for some have never heard
The message of salvation from God’s own holy Word.

I love to tell the story, ’twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.

I love to tell the story, for those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.
And when, in scenes of glory, I sing the new, new song,
‘Twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long.

That was my dream…

God’s Holy Mafia: 007 Agents

22 Mar

a vision by Jill Austin

I had an open vision and saw a gambling casino covering the earth. They were global players who were playing for the world’s resources (like gold, silver, oil, water, inventions, medical breakthroughs, high level technology, etc.). They had no problem committing genocide against entire nations to obtain these valuable commodities.

They were playing with cards and gambling for high stakes. Their faces became like dogs – they had thick collars on, some wore spikes, they were smoking expensive cigars, laughing crudely, and some were drunk and bragging about their evil exploits. They looked like the painting of Coolidge, which shows dogs gambling like men.

But then I saw the Kingdom players of the Lord – His Holy Mafia – who also came and sat at the various tables to play for world resources. They were undetected. They were the Lord’s 007 agents like a “James Bond”, playing a very deadly and dangerous game.

Evil Alliances
The scene changed to Europe, the site of an old ancient castle in Switzerland. Very expensive cars like Rolls Royces, Bentleys, and limousines arrived. Old world families, the wealthy of the earth, were the ones who controlled the financial and political rise and fall of nations throughout the centuries.

These families carried their colorful coat of arms into this ancient castle. But as they entered, the family crest changed and suddenly I saw what they were really known for. With great demonic pride they displayed their family crest and evil legacy. Murderous assignments came down through the lines of the fathers and mothers; it was generational evil being perpetuated.

Several of the family crests revealed that they had committed genocide against the Jews in Europe. Other family crests showed that they had master-minded the political upheaval in several African nations in exchange for the gold, silver and diamond mines.

These ancient families were the wealthiest in the world; they were the ones who had “strings attached” to specific world leaders, who were their “puppets”. These governmental personalities were the charismatic front faces to the public. Over the centuries these involved various religious leaders, dictators, kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers, etc. They would give them money but would then own the nations and enslave the people for the world’s key resources.

It was like a “parade” of generational evil being displayed before each other; great honor and recognition was given to each family. They saluted one another, recognizing that each one played a key role for future world domination.

The Demonic War Room
As this vision continued, I went into a huge board room – a strategic war council of evil – and the back wall was a gigantic map of the nations of the earth. It became three dimensional and displayed “living portals” or “doorways” where evil powers and principalities trafficked in and out of cities and nations.

I began to overhear them methodically planning and orchestrating world terrorism. They began to plan evil throughout the earth to paralyze the world with fear, just like we would take out a yearly planner to schedule events.

They’d declare, “Let’s blow up three embassies in various countries! Let’s have an old woman, a student, and a child to go to different malls, strapped with bombs, and blow themselves up!” As the demonic frenzy excited them, they continued. “Let’s target university campuses and several elementary schools with mass shootings. Let’s release chemical warfare into all forms of public transportation systems. Let’s kill the masses by contaminating water supplies with biological agents. Let’s activate the terrorist cell groups that are planted throughout the earth!” This went on and on and on!

They continued to orchestrate world terrorism so there would be massive death tolls, war breaking out on many fronts, with diseases and plagues covering the earth. Meanwhile, the news media went crazy with all of this chaos and the world moved into great fear.

The nations cried out, “We want peace … at any price.” To maintain law and order, nation after nation became a military police state, which eventually moved everyone into a one world government.

An Enoch Company
In the midst of this, the Lord said that He is raising up an Enoch Company – a group of intercessors who will be translated into these secret, evil alliances. They will hear the plans of Satan, return to the councils of God, and then legislate holy plans to devour the evil plans of the enemy. The Enoch Company are radical intimate worshipping warriors who so love the Lord, and overhear the evil secret plans of Satan, and go to battle for greater truth with the Sword of the Lord – Mercy and Justice

In the hour of history we live in, moving in the Spirit is essential to our survival. Hearing God’s voice in everyday life is no longer an option but a necessity. It is imperative that we all live supernatural lives and spend time in the secret place with the Lord. He is calling all of us to a deeper intimacy and prayer in the hour in which we live.

The Lord is mobilizing global prayer warriors to invade the kingdom of darkness that threatens the borders of our nations. These intercessors will stand in the gap to bring down fresh strategies and blueprint plans from the kingdom of God. I feel like the Lord is raising a remnant of valiant prayer warriors across denominations around the earth. Radical prayer furnaces where they are saying, “Lord, we don’t want to have just little prayers, but we want to go into the heavens and see what is happening, so we can impact our world.”

Reese Howell was a radical apostolic intercessor in World War II. He was a man who would go up into the heavens with a group of intercessors and they would see the strategies of the enemy and the strategies of God. They would start to intercede from the heavens and change the course of the war. The Lord is saying that He is looking for people who are willing to move at a governmental level and to ask Him what is over the land and territory.

This kairos hour in history demands that we must know the times and seasons. Can we go into the counsel of the Lord and get the fresh strategies and war plans for today?

God’s Holy Mafia
I had another vision where I looked out into the expanse in front of us, and as far as my eyes could see were legions upon legions of warring angels. They were waiting for the Captain of the Host, the Lord Jesus, to give the word.

Then I realized that in front of me the battle of all battles was forming: Armageddon. This was not just a war between men. This was a war between the fierce angelic hosts and the evil principalities and powers.

These ancient angels of the Lord, the holy army of God, were enormous and fearful to behold. It was as if they were continental angels, global angels. Glory was radiating from them. There was a certain grandness about them, and a feeling of the awe of God surrounded them. They were dressed in military attire—warriors of violence and yet love.

Some had been released and were moving on the earth with special assignments. Others were waiting for orders. I could feel their determination to bring forth the Kingdom of God. Their faces were set like flint. They knew they were part of the end time battle of the Lord. As they looked from the realm of eternity into earth, they moved with grandeur and magnificence to fulfill various assignments.

A Call to War
Then I saw the Captain of the Host, the Lord Jesus Christ. Whenever He spoke, another angelic legion would rumble and move. I could hear the sounds of their chariot wheels and the hooves of horses. I could also hear the sound of a shofar. And the Lord was saying, “I am coming as King. I will release kingly anointing. I will bring justice and judgment—and holiness as never before.”

I also saw other angelic hosts and chariots of fire waiting for their time to be released. The Lord said, “I am calling you as radical forerunners. I am calling you to be end time voices. I saw the forerunners being sent to cities and nations and standing before presidents and dictators in nothing less than suicidal assignments. I also saw us sharing the Word of the Lord with the poor.”

As I looked at the earth, I saw doors opening into different cities, then palaces and embassies. The army of forerunners moved forward with a great show of strength and military prowess. It was more like guerrilla warfare with secret assignments in every arena of influence.

I understood that many of us will be moving in difficult operations within enemy-controlled territories. Sometimes we will be visible but sometimes we will be hidden. The battle will go underground and include incredible assignments to take out top principalities and powers over regions. We will go in like end time secret agents – 007 special operations — to wreak havoc to the demonic realm.

Holy Alliances
Then I heard the Lord speak to me. He said, “You are part of a company of forerunners—end time messengers speaking the Word of the Lord. Sometimes you will be visible and will walk into governmental places. But other times you will move in a realm of invisibility and will shift and move things through intercession and apostolic authority. I am releasing my end time generals.

“Yes, evil alliances are being formed, but I am releasing holy alliances. Do not fear. I am releasing warring angels to protect you on these assignments. You will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of your testimony. You will not love your life even unto death. Even though many are called to martyrdom, not one life will be touched until the hour and the day of the appointment. I am releasing warring angels, guard angels. So do not fear, for every day of your life is ordained.

“I am calling My people to be the voice of the Bridegroom, the voice of radical, raging love—for the Kingdom of God is taken with violent love. I am calling you into strategic battle to bring the fear of the Lord, to divide the holy and the profane, to move strategically for My purposes. I will take you places where you will hear demonic plans being made. You will pray and break the power of those plans. You will draw from the armory of the Lord.

“I am calling you to bring justice—justice against disease, justice against abuse and bondage. I am calling you to go forth with My heart of love to set the captives free.”

A great stirring in the heart of God for this city

28 Sep

A dream by Richy Clark on September 4, 2007

Last night I had a dream, where a small group of people were with Jeremy and I praying in a portable building. We were laying prostrate on the ground. The prayer felt very dry as if nothing was happening. Then Dutch Sheets swung opened the door. He was under the power fo God and had difficulty standing up. He had been crying very hard, and was blown away by what he felt when he layed on the floor in this city. I knew in the dream that he had been traveling from city to city. He said, “There is a great stirring in the heart of God for this city… something in the ground.” Jeremy and I were encouraged because our prayer had felt so dry. Jeremy joined Dutch as an intern, and they were going out to pray.

INTERPRETATION by Mike:

The city refers to where Richy was living at the time, Montgomery County, Texas. Jeremy is a reminder of the prophet Jeremiah, known for his weeping over the sins of Israel. Dutch Sheets is known as a prophetic intercessor, especially contending for issues related to governmental justice. God has a special purpose for Montgomery County. It is “in the soil”, meaning that it was planned out long ago. He will draw into the area those who are willing to cooperate with His intended purpose. Intercessors should cry out to God with weeping until He establishes His purpose in the county.

Vision of the black sheet

19 Oct

The following experience is related by Mike McClung, Director of the IHOP-Knoxville.

I was awakened on October 9, 2009 at 2:16 AM. When I awoke, I was horrified to find there was no trace of God’s presence to be sensed anywhere. It was a horrible and frightful feeling, one that I had only had one other time in my life, 26 years ago. 26 years ago I had an experience where I was taken to hell. The darkness that I encountered in that place was like a literal substance that was so thick that I could feel it touching me. In that previous experience, I heard the screams and cries of those who had been assigned to that God-forsaken place because of their rejection of God’s provision of salvation through His Son. There was no trace of God’s presence in that place. This current experience did not have that same substantive darkness or cries of those in torment, but it did have the same feeling of the abject absence of God’s presence.

In this later experience, I was completely alone. Desperation swept over me and I began to cry out to the Lord…but, again, silence. I began to plead with the Lord to tell me what I had done, or let me know what was happening. Silence. There was a vast void of stark emptiness and…silence. About an hour into this experience, continuing to pray and cry out to the Lord, I had an open vision. In this vision, I saw what appeared to be a black blanket or sheet float down and settle over the nation. The desperation I felt escalated again! I knew that once this darkness settled, there was no hope of escape. I prayed a little longer with no change, so I finally got showered and went to the IHOP-Knoxville to pray and seek the Lord.

I kept praying in tongues and in English for the next two hours, and around 6AM, the Lord began to finally speak to me about what was happening. More understanding came as the day unfolded. In as much as I can remember, I will relate what the Lord began to reveal in chronological order.

The time, 2:16 AM was a scriptural address, as it usually is when things like this happen to me. It was Isaiah 21:6, which says, ‘For thus has the Lord said to me: Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees.’ I knew this meant that I was supposed send this as a call to the body of Christ to stand as an intercessory watchman to whoever would answer. The scripture the Lord gave me to help explain the vision was Isaiah 60. Isaiah 60:1-3 says, Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

The Lord said that Isaiah 60 was being put into motion all over our nation. His judgment had come in the form of removing His restraining grace from our nation and allowing darkness to invade, and that darkness would invade every section and sphere. There was no way out of this. At the beginning, this looked and felt hopeless until the Lord began declaring to me His purposes in allowing this to happen. According to the scripture, the end purpose of this is to see a massive harvest come forth.

The Lord warned me not to pray to get out of this, because He would not hear prayers to “escape.” He said the purpose in this happening was to move the bride of Christ forward in His process to bring the glory of the Lord out of the corporate body. The first part of Isaiah 60 is what should be focused on – the glory rising – and we should remove all distractions and hindrances from focusing on seeing His glory arise. “Christ IN you, the hope of glory” (Col. 1:27) is the only hope our nation now has. Only the people of God who will align themselves with His presence and purposes will have the tools, strategy and weapons to overcome the darkness now settling on our nation. The glory of the Lord is arising in His remnant church! This is a very sober time to get our lives free of everything that defiles of flesh and spirit (2 Cor. 7:1), to be effective against the darkness that’s now coming. There will be those who “know their God, become strong (obtain power), and do exploits (take action)” as it states in Daniel 11:32b.

The Lord spoke the same thing to me that I heard our good friend Paul Keith Davis related in a spiritual experience he had some time back. The Lord said, “Someone better get authority with Me quickly!” When I heard that, the fear of the Lord overwhelmed me and I could hardly do anything else the rest of the day except cry out for God to judge my heart and life to reveal anything hindering Him operating through me and His people.

Although this might sound hopeless, it is not. The Lord can do in one day what we might think would take 1000 years! If we cooperate with Him, we can and will become the place of refuge, light, power and provision the Lord has destined His bride to be. The Lord began to reveal some specific prayer and practical strategies that will be necessary as this darkness encroaches into all areas of our society. These strategies are enumerated here:

* Prayer itself must undergo and change. We can no longer just cry out for God to have mercy on our nation. We must cry out for God’s original purposes for this nation to be returned to and fulfilled. When Moses interceded with God on behalf of Israel, it was God’s reputation and purposes, along with His love, that Moses stood in the gap and declared. Just asking God to have mercy is no longer good enough, because we now have a society in which the majority loves sin more that they love God, which also, sadly, includes much of the church. It was the declaration of remembering God’s reputation and God’s original purposes that turned the wrath of the Lord away through Moses’ intercession.

* Instead of only praying directly for our leaders, many of whom are being led solely by unrighteous motives and/or unrighteous counsel, we need to pray for those vessels God has prepared for this day and hour to be set in specific places of authority, favor and influence. Neither Daniel nor Joseph were the “head guy.” This was not God’s will. But they were in a position to speak with supernatural insight, wisdom and grace into the lives of those who were in positions of authority. We need to pray for God to turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness (2Sam. 15:31). This means we need to be praying for God to make the counsel of those in places of authority worthless, and for God to replace them with those who will speak God’s counsel. The Lord will back this up with supernatural signs and wonders as He did in the past!

* Pray for a sweeping reformation to come to the body of Christ in this nation. We must have revival and reformation. The glory must come, but there must also be scriptural training come to the body of Christ. The “meeting mentality” must die. We must go from just inspirational, encouragement meetings to have a mind of training to “stand in the day of battle” (Ezek. 13:5). This will mean a fundamental change in the way people, especially leaders, perceive “church.” The kingdom must be the focus and not just having good meetings to entertain the crowds and keep their tithes!

* A fundamental change must come in eschatological frameworks. We must go from and escape mentality to an occupy mentality. We must begin to train and equip the saints to overcome and invade the culture and occupy until He comes. Most people are caught up with the question of “when” as it relates to the end times, but that’s not the correct question. “When” is not for us, as the Lord said Himself. It is the WHY that we need to be concerned with, because until the specific scriptural conditions are met, He will not return! He deserves a bride without spot or wrinkle, not one who’s weak, defeated, given to sin and idolatry. When the bride “makes herself ready,” then we can look for Him to soon return.

* We need to be praying and seeking the Lord for supernatural power, strategy and grace to deal with disasters and demonic attacks that are coming. Just like Joseph, He will give us strategies to not only provide for ourselves and our families, but to have answers that will turn entire nations to seek the Lord from Mt. Zion (Isaiah 2, Isaiah 4, etc.). I believe this will include trusting the Lord for supernatural provision, but I also believe, being a Boy Scout in my earlier years, that we need to “Be Prepared” practically. I am already praying for the Lord to bring financial provision to do such things as convert much of the electrical power in our home and ministry facilities with solar and other innovative sources.

* We must seek the Lord to be given understanding of “angelic protocol.” This means we will learn what it means to co-labor with the Lord of hosts, the God of armies. The angelic realm moves on commission of His word (Psalm 103:20-21). This means that the forces of God are marshaled where the two companies (the Mahanaim – see Gen. 32:1-2 and Song 6:13), the company of God’s angelic forces and the company of God’s human army, are working together under His lordship. This is what we see in 2 Kings 6 where Elisha prays for his servant’s eyes to be opened to see the angelic army surrounding them, waiting to fight on their behalf, as they move in obedience to the Lord’s direction. Greater engagement of the spiritual realm is coming to where we will not only see what the Lord is doing, but the Lord will also allow us to see what the enemy is plotting in order to cut the plans off with God’s strategy. This will truly be one small part of a living testimony of His glory to the nations.

* The Lord will begin to convene counsels over cities and regions that He will work with to reveal and release strategic initiatives that will shake demonic structures, but which will also build and plant the kingdom of God. Some of these are already operating and will begin to have spiritual downloads and angelic interchange that will cause breakthrough in existing structures, turning them to righteous purposes putting His glory on display.

This will be the best of times and the worst of times. This will be our finest hour as the saints of God are positioned to release kingdom power and authority that will rise in us and in our midst like a shining light that will beckon to the nations. This will come to those who seek the Lord with all their heart (Jer. 29:13) – those who have an intimate, uncompromising relationship with the Lord and are unwavering in the carrying out of His purposes.

The Weeping Room– Pathway to Strategy

15 Dec

By Jennifer Miller
Associated with Paul Keith Davis  http://www.whitedoveministries.org/

January 25, 2004
One day as I was in prayer the Lord began to open up my eyes to a spiritual encounter. I saw myself being taken up to heaven. Before me I saw a huge house with many rooms. I knew instantly that this was the ‘Father’s House’. I could feel the love of the father drawing me in, so I began to run as fast as I could to enter the house. As I entered, the Lord walked with me through many rooms, each one packed with spiritual meaning.

He quietly invited me to follow Him into the most beautiful room in the whole house— the intimacy room. It was absolutely extravagant and beautiful. Upon entering the room, I was overwhelmed with love and wanted to stay there forever. In the Spirit I could hear other people (other believers) in all the different rooms of the house. Some were studying books in the library; others were becoming intoxicated in the spiritual wine cellar. I was somewhat surprised that everyone wasn’t in the intimacy room since it was the most beautiful room in the whole house.

As I was admiring this intimacy chamber, I noticed a little wooden hatch door on the floor adjacent to the bed. It seemed really odd to me, because it wasn’t fancy and hardly seemed to fit with the rest of the room. I asked the Lord why it was there, and He told me that it led down to another room in the house. I asked Him why He would put this door so close to the most beautiful thing in the whole room, the bed. He responded, “I keep it here, because down there is where I spend most of my time”. Instantly my curiosity was stirred so I asked what was down there. He said it was called the “Weeping Room”.

Although it hardly sounded like a room I wanted to be in, there was a cry in my heart that said that if that is where the Lord spends His time, then that is where I want to go. I asked Him if I could go down there with Him, and He responded “Very few will choose to go down there, it’s not extravagant like this room, it’s lonely, it’s not comfortable, and you have to get very low to fit through the door.” I told Him that I didn’t care what the conditions would be like; I just really wanted to be wherever He was.

So we opened the little hatch door and began to slowly climb down a dark staircase until we came upon the tiny room. I had to get on my knees to fit through the door because it was so small. As we entered the room it was very simple. All it consisted of was a small wooden chair. One of the walls had a small window in it. The Lord took His seat on the chair and turned His face to look out the window. Instantly I became aware of why this room was called the weeping room.

As you looked out the window-you could see and hear every single cry coming from people on the earth. You could see every single act of injustice all at the same time. Every starving child crying out to God, every woman being raped, every moan of the rejected…you could hear every prayer, every cry all at the same time. The Lord sat in His chair and watched and heard it all.

At once I was overwhelmed with intercession and began to weep. I wept for hours. I wept for those who were hurting, but even more-I was undone by this beautiful King who would choose to spend His time in this place; This King who paid such attention to every cry and who was so full of compassion. As I sat and wept with the Lord, I began to ‘feel’ His heart-and all my selfish ambition began to fade away

While we were in that place I noticed that there was another door in the weeping room. I asked the Lord what was behind that door and He told me that was where the ‘Strategy Room’ was. As He said those words, instantly in my spirit I knew in that room divine strategy for end-time revival was available. Although the door was still closed, I recognized that Wisdom and Revelation where in there.

Heavenly blueprints were laid out to see the fulfillment of His kingdom coming to earth from that room. It was like the hidden room that everybody searches for. Everyone longs to have divine strategy. I immediately asked if I could go in there and the Lord soberly told me that I didn’t ‘fit through the door’. I instantly understood that I had to spend time in the weeping room. As I began to really apprehend the heart of God for the poor and the broken, then issues of my soulish nature would be stripped away until I would become small enough to fit through the door.

At that moment everything became clear. This was the only way to access divine strategy. From the place of intimacy God invites us in to a deeper level— He beckons us into the weeping room-a place where we choose to see what He sees and feel what He feels. And as we spend time getting the heart of God, things of our flesh begin to be stripped away until we are small enough to fit through the door that leads to the strategy room.

I had this encounter over two years ago but I believe that God is now moving many in the church from the place of intimacy into weeping. This will lead them into the strategy room. In actuality, you never have to leave the intimacy room; you just discover the deeper levels. Many have already surrendered themselves to the weeping room and extravagantly pursued the heart of God for the broken— they are now being invited into the strategy room.

I had another encounter a little over a year ago in which I heard a loud voice say, “It’s Time!” and in the Spirit I saw the strategy room door swing open. God is inviting us into divine strategy that will release a global harvest of souls, and establish the revelation of His kingdom on earth through overcoming saints.

I believe that as we enter the “strategy room,” we will be compelled and moved by what we have seen and felt in the weeping room. I have a sense that some have gone before us into the strategy room. Unfortunately, most quickly forgot what the strategy was for and used it to build their own kingdom. (Haggai 1:3-7) God is in the process of raising up a whole company of believers who are repulsed at the idea of building their own kingdom. This company will have their hearts truly branded with passion and compassion. These are the ones that God is looking to release into the strategy room. “It’s Time!”
