Recently Chuck Pierce brought a Word, saying that we couldn't go into our new field unless we receive the new surprise anointing. (Look on his web
site for this). I was praying over this, asking the Lord what He is talking about and then a wave of joy and gladness came over me in His Presence –
a joy exceedingly and full of glory, simply because of His great Love! My greatest joy is in His grace that brought me to salvation that I may know Him
and with it He also gave me an inheritance as co-heir with Christ of all His riches in glory! (1 Peter 1:3-9).
I believe the Lord wants to release fresh oil over the Bride of Christ for this hour. It is found in the secret place of His Presence where we see Him
face to face and it is the Anointing oil of Joy and gladness. He wants us to be enthralled with His beauty and be adorned with a robe of Praise, for
He is coming for a joyous, overcoming Bride that is full of His shining glory!
Fresh revelation came to me that He made provision for us for this hour to become filled with His joy so that we will have the strength to stand in
victory and overcome any and every assignment of our enemy. GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST! I CANNOT STOP PRAISING HIM FOR HIS
PROVISION IN THE RICHES OF HIS GLORY!
Psalm 16:11 ” Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
The Lord wants us to worship Him until His Presence comes and then to find enjoyment in Him for Himself! This is the place where we look into
His glory and our hearts are transformed in thankfulness for His grace and mercy and lovingkindness and we are overflowing with joy.
The enemy wants to distract us with negative assaults on our minds through the situations and circumstances around us, but a secret is found in
Psalm 16, namely to set the Lord before my eyes and no other god; to focus on His goodness and mercy and grace, His majesty and might and
power and to put our trust completely in Him! We cannot afford to look to the left or the right at the circumstances around us, or to lend our ears to
the negative input of doubt and fear coming from the enemy of our souls. Watch over your mind and emotions and cast down every negative input,
taking every thought captive into obedience to Christ, fixing your gaze on the Beloved!
verse 8: “I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.”
Notice that this FOCUS on the Lord produces a gladness of heart and a sound of rejoicing in praise coming from our lips and it brings rest and
verse 9: “Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.”
I received a revelation of the power of His joy that strengthens us! (Neh. 8:10). We will experience new levels of warfare in the coming days, but
when our inner man is strengthened in His Presence, we can sing of His new mercies every morning and arise with the full assurance that we can
do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
ARISE AND SHINE!
The shine of JOY comes from His Glory-Presence!
We are in the time of Is. 60, where great darkness is coming over the earth, but this is the time to spend much time beholding Him until we receive
that fresh anointing of His JOY, smeared with the oil in His Presence, shining in the glory of the Bridegroom encounters. This Joy will be our
strength and cause us to rise up with eagle wings (Is. 40: 30) to soar far above the troubles of the coming days and we will join in laughter with the
Lord when He laughs at our enemies, for when we fly high in the warmth of the Son in high praises, the enemy of our souls cannot pull us into
misery and despondency.
WHEN TRIBULATION COMES
When difficulties increase, increase your level of Praise and ascend into the heavenly glory where joy will fill your soul and you will receive a fresh
Word form the Throne of Grace to enlighten your heart and show you the way of victory and fill your mouth with Faith.
Realizing that tribulation and the trial of our faith works patience in us, in order to perfect us, (James 1: 3-4), we can embrace it and count it all joy!
On top of this is an awesome blessing:
II Corinthians 4:17: “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory….”
Now look at the secret again:
verse 18: “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but
the things which are not seen are eternal.”
Where our eyes go, our minds follow. “Set your mind on things above, not on the things on the earth” (Col 3: 3) BEHOLD HIS GLORY AND
LET HIS PRESENCE SET YOU FREE FROM OPPRESSION
Jesus came to set the captives free! Halleluyah!
“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of
heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of THE LORD, that he might be glorified.” (Isaiah 61:3) Come sit under His
glory spout and receive it, it’s yours!
INSTRUCTION IS IN HIS PRESENCE AS WELL AS PROTECTION
"1 THE LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4 One thing have I desired of THE LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of THE LORD all the days of my life, to behold the
beauty of THE LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea,
I will sing praises unto THE LORD.”
ABIDING IN HIM, IN HIS WORD, IN HIS LOVE – SO THAT YOUR JOY CAN BE FULL!!
Full provision was made for us in Christ. Let us simply abide in Him, the hope of glory in our hearts. He has given us His Logos Word as well as
His Rhema Word, as the Spirit speaks to us and then He has poured our His Love through the offering of His Blood. This is the source of fullness
of joy to be enjoyed by us!
John 15:7-11 “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father
glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye
keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things
have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.”
The joy of the Lord is your strength and this joy is like a turbo charge for your faith. It energizes your faith with mountain-moving power, so watch
over it and do not allow the enemy to steal your joy! ABIDE IN THE GLORY OF HIS PRESENCE! BECOME A HABITATION FOR HIS GLORY so that
you can dispense it everywhere you go and change the atmosphere with His joy! His glory will go before to make the crooked places straight, it will
be your rear guard and your defense and it will be the canopy over you!
By the Joy of the Lord in your spirit man, you will have the necessary strength to stand in the coming days and to overcome by the blood of the Lamb,
the Word of your testimony and by not loving your life unto the death (Revelation 12:11).
RECEIVE A NEW SONG IN THE GLORY
Wait in the secret place for the Holy Spirit to anoint you with this fresh anointing and receive the new sound from heaven. This sound becomes a
victory song in your spirit and as you sing it, in sync with the Holy Spirit, it will cause an energy-force of resurrection power to break you through into
liberty into new realms of intensified glory! Nothing, no enemy force, no blockage, no hindrance can stand before the high praises of our God. It
causes scattering in the camp of the enemy and he is brought into ambush. The written judgment is executed against your foes and you will come
through more than victorious, giving Him all the glory! (Psalm 149).
Now let His Kingdom reign in you in righteousness, peace and JOY in the Holy Ghost! (Romans 14:17).
In JOYOUS CELEBRATION of His Goodness & Grace!
