Grace & Peace to you! Day 11 - eleven represents transition, many are in the midst of transition. The Lord is sifting and shifting us to get us where we need to be in this hour to best serve His Kingdom. Take courage my friends the hand of the Lord is upon you and He is leading you where you need to be...embrace the journey.
This is what the Lord is saying to you today; For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for good and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. - Jer 29:11-13
Jesus Is The Living Word!
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. – John 1:1, 14
Last week our focus was ‘The Voice of God Speaking’ this week its ‘Sword of the Lord’. We are in the Hebraic year 5777 ‘Year of the Ruling Sword’. I ran across a prophetic word from Sue Rowe of The Global Watch which reflected what I felt the Lord was saying for this week.
Sue had a vision: “Recently, I woke up shortly after 3am. In the corner of the dark room was a distinct form of light. As I blinked, I saw the form of an angelic being sitting on a chair scripting in a book. There was no noise. It was just there. I don’t know how long it had been there. The stillness in the room was unlike anything I have ever witnessed or experienced. The glow from it was steady and uninterrupted. The Presence of the Lord was there. All I could do was to lie still and focus on His Presence and wonder why this was happening.
Scriptures began to run through my head. As that happened, the overwhelming sense of His love came upon me, and the fear of the Lord gripped my heart.
Word: After the encounter, this word came forth. “This year My Word shall become a mighty weapon and consuming fire in the hearts of My people. You will know Me and My Word in new ways. It will not be just a kindling and a comfort, but a consuming fire carrying My will and purpose for those who wield it. It shall come upon you in the middle of the night. It shall come upon you in the middle of the day. It shall come upon you in your coming and in your going. Where it has become dull of hearing and not heard, it shall become sharpened as a double-edged sword and its full sound released. It will be a torch by night and a burning fire by day. The dust of fallow ground shall break open as new springs of revelation gush forth as rivers of living water.
You will be thrust into places where trust in My Word will be the dividing line for the darkness you see before you. Though it may seem dark and impossible to you and the fear of man may grip you, My Word will not fail. Hold fast! For you will see My Word break open strongholds of the past that have kept My people in captivity for I am coming as a consuming fire. What has seemed impossible in the past is not now, for My time has been determined. I am a jealous God, there is no other. As you trust in Me and My Word, you will know My Word as living and active and My love will burn it into your heart. Take My Sword. It is My Word. Wield it with strength for I am watching over it to perform it. For I am a consuming fire, and My Word will be your dividing line this year.” [Read the complete prophetic message http://www.theglobalwatch.com/2017-the-year-of-the-sword.html]
