Shalom Seeking Ones,
We begin week 3 today; this week we will finish up reading about the Hebrides revival and begin looking at the Great Awakenings of yesterday - crying out, Lord, doing it in our day!
Entering through the Open Door,
Could It Be? Season of An Open Door!
Could it be that we have come to a season of the open door? Revelation 4 is a beautiful passage of scripture. John the Revelator was given an invitation to ‘come up here’ to the heavenly throne of God. Come up to receive revelation of ‘what must take place after these things’. The book of revelation reveals a time yet to be, there are two basic interpretations of this book: classical, historic approach and the dispensational approach.
We, however will look at this passage as an invitation from the Lord to see into the heavenly realm. To engage with God’s Throne and to hear a message from the voice of God.
Acts 22:14 (AMP) And he said, The God of our forefathers has destined and appointed you to come progressively to know His will [to perceive, to recognize more strongly and clearly, and to become better and more intimately acquainted with His will], and to see the Righteous One (Jesus Christ, the Messiah), and to hear a voice from His [own] mouth and a message from His [own] lips.
1 After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.” 2 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was standing in heaven, and One sitting on the throne. 3 And He who was sitting was like a jasper stone and a sardius in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, like an emerald in appearance. 4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones; and upon the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white garments, and golden crowns on their heads. 5 Out from the throne come flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder. And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God; 6 and before the throne there was something like a sea of glass, like crystal; and in the center and around the throne, four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind. 7 The first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle. 8 And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say, "HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is THE LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IS TO COME. 9 And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, to Him who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders will fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and will worship Him who lives forever and ever, and will cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11 "Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.”
Years ago we held Fire and worship gatherings on the Central Coast during one of them this prophetic word came forth. As I was preparing for the 12 hr. Prayer watch which took place this past Friday the Spirit took me to this prophetic word. The Spirit said, this word has come to maturity, its now time for its fulfillment. As you read the prophesy and the account of the Hebrides revival may you come to understand they are invitations to live in a realm of the Spirit we have yet to know - supernaturally living out the Scriptures.
Season of Open Doors
Prophesied on June 11, 2006 by Pat Sparrow
I’m pouring out the Lord says, not only My Spirit but also My vision and you’ll be calling these days / this season will be known has the Season Of Open Doors. For surely I’m opening doors says your God, I’m opening doors before you I’m giving you opportunity to go through to higher places. The Lord says it is very important that you go through the doors that open before you for surely you will be preparing the way for the next move, the upcoming generation, for the leaders that are going to be coming up behind you. It’s not a day to be slack, it’s not a day to miss the open door, it’s not a day of pulling back, it’s not a day of competing says your God. But it’s a day of encouraging one another for surely in the midst of you the Lord says in the midst of your conversation, in the midst of your fellowship there is going to be a burning of hearts. You’re going to know by the inner witness that this is the season of the open doors and the Lord says, I call you this day to be those who will help birth your brothers and your sisters through the open doors for if you will work together, if you will work together as one for My purposes I will command a blessing even in this place says your God and you will be those who will sit by an open well, you will be those who will be drawing water from the living river continually and you will never know drought, you’ll never know dryness, you will never know the things that are coming upon the earth.
If you will steward My resources in this hour, if you will obey Me, if you will support one another and love one another and not compete says your God but seek the Kingdom of God and call for the purposes of God together you’ll raise up something that will be your sustenance in days and months and years ahead says your God and I will cause you to be a preserved people. I will cause you to be a glorious people. I will cause you to be that place of refuge that others shall come far and wide to come and sit at your feet and to drink and to partake of the provision that I put in your midst for I’m visiting this region says your God. And I put My foot here and I put My foot there, and I put My foot here and I’m causing people to rally in those places coming together in first fruits meetings to hear My voice, to seek My face but instructions are coming from the throne of the Most High God. I’m giving instruction, I’m calling for exploits in My name and I’m calling you to work together as team for even from this night forward you must have different eyes says your God, you must see each other differently from this night forward. You must begin to support and to pray and to encourage one another, when you come across each other you must encourage one another and say, Go Through The Open Doors, I’m praying for you brother, I’m praying for you sister—you must attain in this hour, you must accomplish what God is saying in this hour that we might be preserved, that we might be blessed, that we might have all we need in the days ahead. For the Lord says, these are days, these are days, Do Not Say Tomorrow, these are days that you have My favor, these are days that you have My grace, these are days that I release faith unto you, these are days of the visitation of angels to allow you to accomplish those things you have been praying for, those things you have been seeing, those things you have been waiting upon These Are The Days, says your God. Bless one another, encourage one another, pray for one another, seek one another’s prosperity, seek one another’s promotion, and in doing so the Lord says I will take you all higher. I will take you all to that place of blessing, I will secure the future for you all says the Lord your God.
DO IT AGAIN, GOD!
Read: Revival In The Hebrides by Duncan Campbell
Cry Out for God’s Presence to invade your life, church, city and this nation!
Ask Holy Spirit to open your eyes to this Ayin season, to the supernatural realm of heaven.
Ask Holy Spirit for a fresh anointing to travail - bring to birth His awakening, revival, reformation.
Wait in His Presence, get under the spout of heaven! Write down what He speaks, frame your world with His words!
OH, THAT You would rend the heavens and that You would come down, that the mountains might quake and flow down at Your presence--As when fire kindles the brushwood and the fire causes the waters to boil--to make Your name known to Your adversaries, that the nations may tremble at Your presence! - Isaiah 64:1-2
