“Was it not Aaron who made a golden calf for the people because their hearts were set to do that which they desired? I say, my people in this day have also made themselves idols of gold and silver, even that which is the fruit of their desire. My people have sought out those like Aaron who have listened to their desires rather than hear my voice. For Aaron represents the religious leaders of today who have made idols for my people to worship. They have gone after that which satisfies the lust of the eye and the pride of life. They have erected that which is pleasing to fleshly pride in that they have made to themselves vast systems and organizations which exalt the pride of man and give glory to the works of man’s hands. Therefore my indignation has come up in my face and I am about to bring judgment on the idolatrous systems of man. For Aaron has submitted to the desires of the people and has led them astray. Even so shall I cause Aaron and all his idols to cease. For the day of my judgment is near. And as Aaron pictures the religious idolatry of this day, so have I patterned my Word to portray that which shall take place following. Gathered to me shall be those typified by the Levites who stood with Moses at the gate of the camp (Ex. 32:19-26). The Levites in this instance portray my end-time Body which shall separate from the idolatry of the people and stand with me in this last day. And I will use them mightily says the Lord.”

ball n chainI see a runner coming to the beginning of the 4th lap of a race. There is a large ball and chain on the right ankle and it has a name on it. This person has kept on running the race as best as possible through 3 watches or laps of a very dark night and now it is the morning watch. This runner has cried out for the Lord to move in the situation, to bring deliverance of this weight that slows down all progress and impedes the freedom of the runner to run his appointed course. But the Lord says that this ball and chain has built much spiritual muscle and strength in you and this is why I have allowed it to remain for this long season. Now I come to cut it off and you will be released in an instant. From that moment on, you will run faster and more powerfully than ever before and complete your race for My glory. Understand My ways, child. Nothing is without definite purpose; no onslaught allowed unless it works together for your ultimate good. I know the appointed course set before you in this morning watch, each bend and turn, and you will have need of the muscle and stamina you have developed in the night of trial.

This runner represents the Lord’s final relay company; the sons and daughters of the morning watch and each one has had a ball and chain with a unique name on it. For some, it has been ‘sickness’. For others, it is a tailor-made thorn in the flesh or harassing relationship. For yet others, it has been incredible demonic resistance pushing against every step in a forward direction. But just as resistance training is used to build strong and powerful athletes and sportsmen, so too the Spirit has allowed this resistance training to furnish you with all you will need in the season ahead. You will finish strong.

You may feel weak and exhausted now as you come to this 4th lap and your heart may be failing you at the thought of yet another round of exhausting endurance training. You say, “I have struggled to run with men. How will I ever keep up with the horses as they ride forth to battle?” But the Lord says, “No, this season is different. Now I remove the training aids. Now I set aside the ball and chain. Now I release you to run swift and sure with your eyes on the prize. And you will feel the wind of the Spirit in your hair and you will lift your head and run the course with joy, filled with the power of the Spirit. This is what the dark night was all about, my child. This is why I have hidden Myself from you at times – to make you press in further; to make you pursue me relentlessly, to forge in your heart a determination that no resistance could quench as you pursue the Lover of your soul. Against this passion, the enemy has no antidote. Seeing this fire of zeal, his cohorts tremble and flee, for they know the One with eyes like fire and they fear His dread champions.

Do not measure yourself by your performance in the training days when the weight of resistance weighed you down and wearied your soul. In fact, do not measure yourself at all. Measure Me and the power of My might and run like David did towards Goliath.

1 Sam 17:45  Then said David to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the ranks of Israel, Whom you have defied.

From the womb of the morning, my overcomers are released. From the springboard of all the enemy has thrown at them, they leap forward into their tailor-made assignments, with the battle- cry of the Blood of the Lamb upon their lips. Against this, all darkness flees and the gates of hell will not prevail. Take the Kingdom; possess the fullness of the inheritance I have bought for you. Ask of Me and I will give you the nations which lie before you. Run, My warriors, run the race set before you. Cast  aside the weight, for I have broken its hold upon you.”

Beloved, take a deep breath and press through. Fix your eyes like a flint on the prize of the upward calling.

Php 3:12  Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own. Php 3:13  I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, Philip 3:14  I press on toward the goal to win the prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.

Forget the 3 training watches of the night. Press forward to seize eagerly that for which Christ Jesus laid hold of you. There is an upward call sounding forth. Come up higher, see things from the throne’s perspective. Like horses released from their starting gates, the Morning Watch runners are being released from their training season. It is time.

The LORD says, My child, I have taught you many times about how I AM working on your inner man to prepare you for the work ahead.”

I heard, “You are an Expression of Me.  This is the Time of Divine Manifestation.”

“Beloved.  You are My sons and daughters.  You are being changed daily from glory to greater Glory to show the world who I AM.  In these last days, I shall manifest Myself through you.

Not simply imitation but manifestation.  For you are a new creation in Me.  You are hidden in Christ and have died to self.  Now is the time of Divine Manifestation.

The revealing of the Son through My sons and daughters.  There has never been such a time as this, My Child.

This is the Army of God walking in NEWNESS of Life.  You shall bring LIFE to all you encounter.  It shall be by The Holy Spirit of God in you; The LORD of Glory; The Helper in you, Christ living through you.

You have this Treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great Power is from your God and not of yourselves.  You are My vessels of Honor.  You are My Representatives.  You are My Light shining into the darkness.

The Anointing of My Glory has come upon you.  Submit totally to My Spirit within you.  I shall manifest My Glory in you in ways you have not even imagined.

Eye has not seen nor ear heard nor has it entered into the heart of man the things which I have prepared for you, Beloved. And I SHALL reveal Myself through you through the Spirit, YES, even the DEEP THINGS of your God shall be made manifest!

“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit “, says the LORD of Hosts!”

“You may have had little strength, but you have kept My Word, and have not denied My Name,” says The LORD.

“You may feel as if you have had nothing to offer to Me that has any value.  But your desire to know Me more is a treasure that is incomparable to Me.

I have been calling out to you with the new sense of awareness that I have instilled in you, and now you in your weakness have come to dwell under the shelter of the Almighty.

The wings of the eagle glide in silence over the landscape in total silence, undetected until it reaches his prey, unless it is seen.

The LORD dwells in the High and Lofty place and calls out to you, the contrite ones.  And The Spirit of The LORD will not remain as if undetected, I speak into your spirit, and the renewing of your mind will open your ears to the Word I AM sending you.

Choose this day what you will hear.  Choose his day WHO you will hear.  As you begin to yield yourself I will show you WHY you hear.  I have called you as a prophet to the nations.

I call you as a prophet to your nation and the nations of the world.

I send forth My Word to you that will not return to Me empty.  My Words will accomplish all that I desire. My Word carries My intent and My intent will carry you.

It will flow as the river that courses through a valley, a dry river bed that has been desolate, and wanting for water.

So are you who will hear the Word That IS Sent to your believing heart.  The river will flow, crashing into the rocks that have seemed immovable, the unbelief that had been set in bedrock.

The rocks will be breaking loose from seemingly immovable places in the riverbed, and a new river course will begin.

There will be a breaking forth as water breaking through a dam,  There will be the rolling of the immovable, the crushing of the moorings that held the immovable in their place.

The reasons why others held on to their unbelief will no longer have a place to stand any more.  For I have exposed their reasons for what they really are,”  says The LORD.

“I will never leave you.  I will never forsake you,” says The LORD.

This prophetic Word came as a song, God singing to us:

“Yes, I respond to you My children and I blow you love kisses My little ones for how much I love you.

Words can never express My love.  I blow you love kisses from heaven.  How much I love you, you will never really know so, I blow you love kisses from heaven.

You are the sweetest thing that this world will ever know, so, I blow you love kisses from heaven My little ones.

How much I love you, how much I really love you, you will never know.  I blow love kisses from heaven My little ones.

And you are so precious to Me, there are no gems, there is no creation that holds more value in this world or in the world to come than you.

I placed you right in the midst of the roughness of this world so that by My power and the beauty that I placed on the inside of you, you would shine and cause all things to be affected by the very beauty and the power that resides on the inside of you.

It has not yet been revealed all that I have placed on the inside of you, but in the days ahead I AM uncovering and revealing who you are, how magnificent you really are.

You will see that you know more than you think you know, you are greater than you think you are too, for I have placed Myself on the inside of you and I AM great.

There is nothing that you can not do, there is nothing that you can not see, there is nothing that you can not touch and affect, there is nothing that you can not breathe life upon.

For I have placed Myself on the inside of you so open up My children day by day and allow the discovery of who you really are to come to the surface and you will be amazed as you amaze your territory and your sphere.

You will stand in awe of who you are in Me and you will begin to see that there is no weapon, there is nothing that can be formed against you that will stand against who you are in Me.

For I AM greater on the inside of you, greater than any circumstance or situation, or anything in your life that you would come across, the greater One is on the inside of you.

You are far more than you know, but I AM disclosing the wonder of you in Me.

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well,”   Psalm 139:14.

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world,”   1 John 4:4.

“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee,”   Jeremiah 31:3.

I was worshiping in the Throne Room as I always do. I noticed more Believers singing along with me. Whether they were others like me or Saints that have passed I’m not sure. My heart says it was a combo. I noticed vaguely that King David was singing up high on my right. He was standing by his throne or seat that has been assigned to him. I have seen David several times before and often next to him is prophet Jeremiah. Lately, when I’m in the temple, (not the Throne room) I have seen more glimpses of golden floor instead of bright white. This is encouraging for me as I am starting to see differently. When I came to the praying time of my worship and proclaiming Ps 91, I found myself over some people in Asian who wearing straw hats in rice paddies or fields. I wasn’t sure if they were from Japan or China but they were busy working and they appeared to be several women. I asked them what assurance do you have that you will be in heaven after you die? I understood they are enslaved in idolatry and a deceptive afterlife. So I gave them the reason for my hope, spoke truth, declared scripture over them and sang a song. I prayed for them before I left.

Back at the white bench area, Jesus was standing to my left and I saw me standing beside Him. He was talking to me and His one hand was on my shoulder with the other pointing to look ahead. So I looked ahead and then was me seeing. I saw a magnificent huge cross (maybe 300’ high or 90 meters) on a big hill with one path to it. There were many people on this path that led to the cross but I also noticed so many walking up the hill from all directions but they couldn’t get to the cross. They were not on the path. I asked Jesus about this and He said: “Those that stay on the path will find mercy, salvation and hope of a future with Me in heaven. There is only 1 path that leads to the Father and that’s through Me.” Many have been deceived that there are many paths to God the Father; that all gods lead to the Father. That is a lie from the evil one. I am the only way, the only truth and the only life that leads to salvation and a future with the Father forever. Narrow is the gate. Be grounded in My Word so you will stand firm in your faith and won’t be deceived.”

I asked Him if there was a vision yet to see other than all what I had already seen. He told me to look again. So I looked and saw a side perspective of that hill and the path that leads to the cross. The cross was on my right up on the hill. And there on the path that leads to the cross were the women I had just spoken to in the spiritual realm! They were on the path of truth!! Oh how wonderful! This is a confirmation that what I say does make a difference. God uses our prayers, our words of truth, our planted seeds to bring people to repentance and salvation. Everything is in His timing so don’t give up praying for the lost and speaking truth in love. How encouraging for us all!
