During a time of recent worship I was pressing in for more, and suddenly I began to see in the spirit several mantles being released to the earth. I asked the Lord what He was showing me, and He said, "I'm releasing new mantles of glory upon My people." I believe this is a continuation of the Isaiah 60 mandate God is releasing over His people. Isaiah 60:1-2 (TPT) declares, "Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned. Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you and the brightness of His glory appears over you." For those who are willing to grab it, there are fresh mantles of glory being released from Heaven. Fresh can be defined as not previously known, new, unprocessed, not altered, different, pure. God desires for His people to walk in a new glory they've not known, or that the world has not experienced yet. Despite what may be taking place upon the earth and in the Church, the glory of God will continue to increase. Habakkuk 2:14 (ESV) declares, "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea."
What is a mantle? Mantle is term we see in the Bible used and worn by prophets. The mantle carries a supernatural realm and authority, and everything the prophet would need to carry their assignment out. Mantles empower us to carry out the assignments the Lord gives us. Many have been in a season of transition for the past two years, because the Lord is birthing new assignments. One of the things that hinders us from stepping into new seasons and new assignments, is keeping our mantles from past seasons and assignments. New seasons require new mantles, and new anointings.
We're stepping into new era of glory. Don't miss the mantle the Lord is releasing for your next. The mantle of glory you wore in previous seasons won't do in this new season. New mantles release new influence, a greater measure of faith, and greater measures of wealth and inheritance. Isaiah 60:3-6 TPT, declares the nations will be attracted to the glory on your life. In this passage Isaiah tells us to lift up our eyes, look around and believe. And Isaiah 60:5 (TPT) says, "The fullness of the sea will flow to you and the wealth of the nations will be transferred to you." The warfare and the contending you've been going through over the past few years has been for the more and the increase.
As the Lord mantles you for this new season, own your mantle and wear it with confidence. Stop dulling down or trying to hide your shine, because it may upset others You were made to shine, and its your time to shine. Go forth with your new mantle and release His glory!
