Word of the Lord for May 2016

May, 5 2016
AYIN -- is the 16th letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It's numeric equivalent is 70. So as we are currently in the Hebrew year of 5776, Our sight, our ability to see into the realm of the spirit is being enhanced, so that our spiritual eyes will see way beyond what is being presented to our minds, and as a result our understanding becomes enlightened by the spirit of God working in us.
Holman Christian Standard Bible translation says it this way: Ephesians 1:18-19 "I pray that the perception of your mind may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the glorious riches of His inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power to us who believe, according to the working of His vast strength."
This year we are in our 7th year of Ayin. In October this year, the time will turn again and we will see with an even greater significance. The Head of the Year will bring us to 5777. It will open unto us an even greater awakening. We are on a course to seeing, understanding, unveiling, and even uncovering more and more of the things of God and what we have been called to, in this very hour.
This is why we are seeing time literally accelerate pass us. We are moving from 6--(the number of man) to 7--(a people in God.) It is a place where we give way to what we think we are, to become who He is in us. A place where as He deals more and more with us and we will see clearer and clearer and become better prepared to walk in His purposes in the earth.
So where are we in the scheme of things and what our next is stop is will become more evident on this road to life. Although it might appear to have winding roads with major prophetic sign post along the way even with twisting and turning in the distance. Know that without a shadow of a doubt that it is a deliberate path and it's course will determined by those who will stand, move forward, and not fear even in the midst of some uncertainty. They will be a people who have learned by God's grace the ways of the Lord. They will as they go make clear the path to others. A people determined to follow Him while coming to the reality that the land even a people are trying to overcome the experiences while looking for answers that only the spirit of God can provide.
(The following are the things that the Lord spoke to me concerning.)
It is time to get to the point that we see through His eyes and trust in what He shows us. We must keep moving forward, praying, praising and speaking life. Forever yielding to Him in obedience to His voice. As we make necessary adjustments in our lives we will see shifts within our own circumstances as they occur around us until all that He is revealing to us is completely in place. We are in a continual faith walk and our faith and trusting Him is paramount. No matter what we see in the natural we must know; He will get us there. As this journey takes place the Love of Christ that is shed aboard in our hearts by the Holy Ghost gives us peace and will assist in balancing us out.
Please note, I prayed over this next word because of what the Lord spoke to me. The Lord reaffirmed to me in dreams, visions, times of worship and praise. In that time, He began to reveal some of the things we will see in the coming days ahead. Many times people want to hear a blanket word of well-being but they don't get to hear about the fine print. In some ways it has contributed to some of the frustration of God's people waiting to see only good results without hearing the process of how these things take place. (I am not claiming to have the answers, as I am walking in His grace. So this is not being said to condemn or judge anyone.) God's word has a way of unveiling truth until it breaks off the things we don't need in order to transform us into who we are to be. We must pray and get before the Lord and search our hearts and understand the truth as it will line up with God's word and we will know what to do as He reveals His answers to us.
The Analogy of Jacob and Israel:
The Lord spoke to me about the analogy of Jacob to explain what we see on the world stage right now with the political arena, but also with key elements that pertain to the church that is looking to find its own way. (The term, finding its own way is a qualifying statement.) There is a great wrestling taking place in the land and within the people even in the church at large as to whether we will rely on the things of God or the world's influences to achieve what needs to be done.
We are at the point where Jacob must deal with himself, his family, and the problems that are going on within him. The process of encountering his brother along with inward power struggles that occurred in times past is a mirror of that which is going now. There are issues that need to come into resolve in the hearts of man while being placed at the foot of the cross. We are all at various levels of spiritual growth and maturity. Receiving the ability to heal and move forward by taking on the Life of Jesus Christ carries with it the power to overcome and accomplish with great strides the current challenges ahead.
There is a remarkable healing balm being released now to the body of Christ. The church must leave the place of wrestling by laying down weapons of religion and embrace the life and love that only Jesus Christ our savior can give us. It is in that process that we begin to walk in face of being Israel His beloved. (Genesis 32: 24-30) We see the transformation of Jacob to Israel. When we realize these things we destroy the lies of the past, which is the duality of man, and become what we were originally intended to be. It is the peace and healing of embracing who we are in the face of Jesus Christ. No longer the duality but one. There is great power in that understanding.
John 17:21 I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one--as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.
There was a powerful word of revelation and prophetic promise that I believe we can stand in today. God gave Jacob that promise, when he had the visitation of the Ladder with the angels of God ascending and descending. Genesis 28 takes us into a place a habitation in God that we can possess our land (which is our true inheritance in Him). It releases our burden of trying to fix things ourselves but also lets us know that we are responsible to hear and walk in what He has called us to be as we yield to the life and truth that is in us through Him. It is our portion and our inheritance. Genesis 28 takes on a new meaning and a profound revelation that we can know and live by. This promise and the ability to overcome has already been set in place.
Genesis 28:13-17 NLT "At the top of the stairway stood the Lord, and he said, “I am the Lord, the God of your grandfather Abraham, and the God of your father, Isaac. The ground you are lying on belongs to you. I am giving it to you and your descendants. 14 Your descendants will be as numerous as the dust of the earth! They will spread out in all directions—to the west and the east, to the north and the south. And all the families of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants. 15 What’s more, I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you. 16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it!” 17 But he was also afraid and said, “What an awesome place this is! It is none other than the house of God, the very gateway to heaven!
Looking through Windows of Time:
We are all under construction at various levels but the Good news of the gospel is that we don't have to stay where we are because we are in a perfecting process. (But it won't occur overnight.) Many truths’ will become more and more evident on our way to 5777, which is the feast of Rosh Hashanah. We are literally looking through windows of time and this is why we are on an accelerated course. We are in a countdown to things shifting in powerful ways good and also challenging. We will become keenly aware of the greatness that the Lord has placed within us but all the while dealing with that which needs to be eliminated.
This cleansing process will continue throughout this season but the affects will bless us and bring us into greater revelation of what He has called us to do. I mentioned in previous words that the Lord spoke to me and said that we must learn how to walk in the light so that when we go into dark seasons we will know how to properly navigate. I have prayed more and more however I have not heard the Lord change what He said concerning this. Learning how to go through times of trouble and come out on the other side is the order of the day. The good news is that through Christ Jesus we are able to do these things. Our unity will help give us victory and we have been actually in an overcoming process since 2008.
Spirit of Elijah and the Cyrus Anointing:
Two things that are greatly encouraging is The Spirit of Elijah and the Cyrus Anointing that I see very strong and evident in this hour. The Sprit of Elijah carries a powerful apostolic, prophetic, priestly grace that will come upon His people to help others come out of the caves of issues and inner hurts with a spirit of might and counsel coupled with a strong deliverance anointing.
It will touch hearts and assist in the process of healing many who have suffered abuses. It will tear down the partitions of incorrect mindsets (lies of past experiences and unresolved pain). As it frees up His people with new life. It will be the work of the Holy Spirit moving mightily in His Glory to catch those who have felt as if they have been falling through the cracks.
The Cyrus Anointing will be placed upon those who the Lord has designated to be carriers of wealth vehicles. We will see financial releases as the Lord freely disperses provision between now until Pentecost. These finances are the Lord response to prayer that will set up places to help many who will be in crisis. Help and refuge will come as the plans of previous blueprints that God gave to many in times past are implemented. A Cyrus and Joseph people will rise up to carry out projects that will prepare for trouble ahead.
The Lord is saying to His people to become “Freedom” so that they help others to find their way. I had a vision of great number of people coming out of the narrow place. The Lord told me that was what I was looking at, we are coming out to bring multitudes out with us. If not, they will perish in the way. God will prepare his people to maneuver through great financial hardships and provide necessary resources right before the coming famine.
An Uncovering of a Great Wickedness in the Land:
There is a deeper revelation of Luke 18:7 that we will see evident in the days and months to come. There is a greater separation of light and darkness. That which is light is growing brighter and that which is darker is becoming more evident. Gray areas are fading!!! People will profess their confession of faith that have never spoken out. And that which is evil to its’ core is about to be uncovered before all. We will know the difference between those who are in darkness and those who practice darkness. But know also that God's raising up an army of believers who will not be afraid to disarm. tear down, uproot and destroyed those evil works.
Lord give us eyes to see, ears to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to us. There will be much unveiled and many will come to a realization of things that have been filtered through the music and movie industry for years. That which was looked upon being mere entertainment within it will be exposed. Much will be uncovered in the coming months some of it will shock many and confirm to others was has been at work under the surface.
We will see an uncovering in these areas:
More things within the political arena,
World terrorism (specifically ISIS).
There will be an unveiling of nations that might appear to be strange bedfellows that have been in secret agreements.
Uncovering within the church
These things are being revealed as a sign of the times where God himself will be dealing with whom He has previously warned. We will see many things during the course of these last six months. We must pray for our nations, our leadership and our divine protection under the sovereign Hand of God as we continue to become all that He is preparing in us.
