“Get up and press in one more time, because the finish line means it is your time to shine!”

“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus,”   Philippians 3:13-14 (TPT).

I see many of you who were running the race this morning and it is as if as you neared the finish line, you felt like you were slowing down to a screeching halt and could barely make it to the finish line.

Everything in you began to tell you that you will not make it to the end and in fact you may not make it at all. But suddenly I heard The LORD say … ”Press in one more time, because this is not the end, but the beginning of the greatest days of your lives!”

I see demons along this path and they have been trying to trip you up and push you down, to stop you from reaching this point because The LORD said, “The enemy knows when you reach this finish line, you are going to be dangerous to the enemy in the next season!”

Many of you, like Jesus in the wilderness, have been going through a test and he has tried to get you off of the word of God and tempt you to give up but The LORD is saying to, “Get up again!  Dust yourself off, because you are about to come out of this wilderness in The Power of The Spirit!”

“Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time.  Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region.  And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all,”   Luke 4:13-15 (NKJV).

I hear Him saying, “I know that you do not understand, nor do you feel in the natural, that you will ever get to this place ahead.

I see how the enemy has taunted you and lied to you and I have seen every tear and every dream that he has tried to dash in pieces but I, The LORD am saying to you that, I AM about to restore the years that the locust has eaten in your lives!

I AM about to cause the enemy to restore seven-fold what he stole from My People!

Look around you and see that there are more angelic hosts there to minister to you, to help you make it to the end and to begin to bring in the harvest that I promised you that you would!

Arise!  For these are the days of Elijah, Moses, Daniel, Joseph, and David! 

Arise! For these are the times the world has written about and that the Prophet’s have spoken about throughout history!

Arise and press in for these are the days of the beginning of the fulfillment and culmination of times! 

It is not time to give up, but it is time to arise with praise on your lips and joy in your heart! 

It is time to declare what is written to bind the leaders of this world who are out to destroy My People and my nations, for the earth is The LORD’s and the fullness thereof!

Get up again and execute the judgement written in My Word!  Get up now and press in like never before!

Get up again because you have a little strength to press in and I say to you that this test did not come to stay it is coming to pass!

I say to you that, it is your time to take back what the enemy thought he had in the bag and it is your time to take The Kingdom!”

“Lift up your heads, O you gates!
And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory?
The LORD strong and mighty,
The LORD mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O you gates!
Lift up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory?
The LORD of hosts,
He is the King of glory,”    Psalm 24:7-10 (NKJV)
