Ascending to receive the Word

I covered myself in worship under His canopy with such a deep desire for the Lord to see His face and suddenly there He was, full of joy!  The scripture came to me, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”

He grabbed my hand and we started going up – (He said, LET’S GO UP TO GET PERSPECTIVE).  Then I saw myself (from above) sitting on my bed (the earth getting smaller and smaller as we went up) and He conveyed:  I see your heart’s desires and My eyes are upon you all the time.  We were still ascending higher and higher into a great distance.  Now I was not next to Him, but IN HIM. Then I saw those glorious mountains in heaven again and He said, I want you to compel my people to come up higher to see (what the Father is doing) and to get strategy for your situations on earth. It will all be in the Book. Then I saw an open Bible and the Words, “Verily, verily, I say unto you….”

I was impressed by the Lord that everything we hear and see will be in alignment with the Word and therefore we do not fear that we will be led astray. Then He said, “Polish and sharpen your sword”. It was impressed on my heart to meditate more on the Word and to memorize the scriptures more diligently, for the Prophetic Word is based on the Scriptures.

Justice and Judgment under the Lord’s Government

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 1:52 pm by Administrator

I was in them spirit when I suddenly saw Jesus in royal purple attire, with ornate gold trimmings on the sleeves and a heavy gol “mantle” on His shoulders, laid in with beautiful jewels. The scripture came to me of Is. 9:6-7: “The goverment shall be upon His shoulder. Of the increase of His government And peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and upon His Kingdom to order it and establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts shall perform this.”

He was standing with great authority, having a heavy ornate sword in His hand also inlaid with jewels. Then I saw Him slashing things off someone’s shoulders, literally cutting his clothes off him. A new mantle was then put on him.

As I enquiried of the Lord what the meaning of this was, He conveyed to me that this is a time in which He is stripping His bride from false burdens, calling them to attention to their true mandates. There is a pruning and a cleansing wind blowing in the spirit realm, which will manifest in the natural until every facet in the lives of the true bride of Christ is aligned under His governmental order. It is a time to cut out everything which is distracting us from our focus on Him, and let our steps be ordered of the Lord as we lean not on our own understanding, but on the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding.

Celebrating Pentecost!

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 5:21 pm by Administrator

We celebrated Pentecost yesterday and I am so filled with the awareness of the life-giving Spirit, as well as His equipping and empowering. He keeps us in victorious living as we yield to Him and we can enjoy the holy-communion-living continuously in perfect peace! How blessed we are to be called sons and daughters of the Most High God! Living in the power of the Spirit causes us to be led into triumph every time – as we simply rely on Him and follow His lead and Jesus is glorified every time! How marvelous His ways, how magnificent His Wisdom. To Him be all the glory!

OUR HOLY DWELLING PLACE

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 1:50 pm by Administrator

Today, as I was worshiping, I saw the Lord in His awesome majesty and power in a hue of golden light. His figure was huge and awesome to behold. Holiness emanated from Him in such glory that I was overwhelmed in worshipping the three persons of the Godhead for a long time in the beauty of holiness. His love was overpowering and I became aware of His unfailing love for His creation.

I became aware, just like Isaiah that my lips are not holy at all times. I repented and asked Him to cleanse my lips with a fiery coal from the altar. Then I realized that, if we want to live in HIs HOLY PRESENCE continuously, we need to SPEAK only what we hear Him speaking. There is no place for unkind words of judgment or criticism or any kind of negative word in the glory. Only words that are creative, encouraging, kind and uplifting – filled with LOVE.

Then I saw Him stretching His wings over His children who love Him and the scriptures came to me:

“How abundant are your compassions, oh, God! The children of men will be sheltered in the shadow of your wings”. Ps.36:7

I was so aware of the Lord as our dwelling place, but at the same time He comes to dwell in those who love Him by obedience.

“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John 14:23

The Lord’s desire is for us to be one with Him (John 17:22) and to abide in Him so that we can bear much fruit for His glory and that our fruit shall remain (John 15).

To be His vessels of honor, we need to “dwell” in Him, in the secret place of communion with Him where we will hear His voice, see what our Father is doing, be empowered with fresh oil and be put on fire with a fresh fire to do Kingdom exploits for His glory.

And remember, in this place (under His canopy) is perfect provision and protection. It is not stagnant, but is His hovering Presence moving with you wherever you go. So, ARISE and GO – establishing HIS KINGDOM of LOVE !

The Tent of Meeting

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 1:48 pm by Administrator

This morning I was in the spirit, watching as the Lord was stretching a tent over me. I was reminded of Is. 4:5-6: “And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for upon all the glory shall be a defense. And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat and for a place of refuge and for covert from storm and from rain.”

Those who spend time in the Presence of the Lord will experience His protection and provision.
I heard the Lord saying, “Many are fearful and uncertain of the time and the season and the things that are to come but I, I am your canopy of protection.”
Kingdom living is a “place” of God’s Presence, where there is fullness of joy and the security of His love. His glory will be the canopy over us, our rear guard and the shield around us.

The Royal Chambers

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 1:47 pm by Administrator

The Spirit of the Lord whisked me up swiftly and I suddenly had an aerial view into royal chambers. I became aware that it was the palace life as Esther knew it – in preparation for the King. The Scripture came to me of Esther 2:13 – that Esther could choose anything she wanted, but she was satisfied and content with that which Hegai provided for her (speaking of God’s Wisdom). Hegai knew the heart of the King and Esther found the secret of not making her own choices, but to walk in total submission, humility, contentment and rest.
God know what we need and when. He pours out His special anointing oils over us when we are ready for it, now when we think we should have it. His preparation is perfect and we can safely walk in the security of His love-provision.
We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation – created for praise!
Contentment with godly wisdom is great gain.
I sense that God is instructing us to walk in peace, with our mind’s at rest, knowing that He knows our times and our seasons and He will open the doors for your destiny when your preparation is completed in Kingly order. Delight yourself in Him and He will also rejoice over you with singing! The government is upon His shoulders and He reigns in majesty and power! Let your ears be tuned in the waiting rooms of intimacy for the right moment to move on His instruction. That is Kingdom living!
