I want to share a powerful vision and a word the Lord gave me the first time I went to church after the first weeks of the quarantine. I believe this is a NOW word for us!
As I walked through the doors of the church, the sound of the worship of God’s people was so beautiful! My heart was so moved by the sound! The sound of the people of God lifting their voices together was piercing the heavens! I could feel the Holy Spirit so strong! As I lifted my voice in worship, I saw water being poured out from heaven onto the people. This was not a little sprinkle of water, but it was a rushing of water being poured out; like standing under a massive waterfall. I asked the Lord what this meant, and He began to show me. He said:
Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your off-spring, and my blessing on your descendants.
Revelation 22:17 The Spirit and the bide say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.”
Psalm 42: 7 Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; All your waves and breakers have swept over me.
“I am pouring out my water on you; refreshing you. Let go and don’t be afraid. My water is washing you! Flooding over you. I’m pouring out my Spirit and washing you from the PAST season. I’m making you ready for what I’m doing NEXT! The water of My spirit is being poured out over the church to purify and refresh my people. Old ways , old thinking, and old stuff is being washed away like dust! It’s gone! My spirit is being POURED out! I’m calling you HIGHER! I’m calling the church HIGHER!”
The Lord reminded me that there is power in gathering with other believers; with the family of God. Faith rises when we gather to worship Him. We need each other! When we lift our voices together, there is a mighty sound of the army of God that rises up to heaven! This sound of praise confuses the enemy. Strength and victory come as we lift our voices together to God.
I felt compelled to look up the definition of the word dust. Dust is defined as, earth or other matter in fine, dry particles. The dust of old attitudes, old thinking, and old ways are being washed away as we press in to God in worship and prayer. God is calling us to receive His love and surrender everything to Him. He is preparing us for greater things! This is a time to We have a choice. We can surrender and allow God to wash away all those things that have settled on us, or we can hold on to them and stay in the past. He is calling us to move up higher and rise up! We are called to be holy and set apart. Things that have been difficult to overcome will be washed away in a moment in this outpouring of the spirit. Surrender it all to the Father now, and receive the Holy Spirit in a fresh way! We are moving HIGHER!
