Prophetic Word For June: Don't Fear The Warfare. It's Time To Ascend The Heights, The Next Generation Needs You
To be honest I wasn't ready for the recent wave of warfare that left me literally breathless, and overwhelmed. But that's how the enemy works. He'll come after you when you least expect. Many people want to ascend the heights and release mind blowing revelation, but don't realize the cost and the price that's paid and required of you. Ascending the heights is not for the faint of heart. Waves of warfare that come to take you out, can make you question if it's really worth it.
The Lord gave me a powerful dream I want to share and encourage you with. In the dream it was late at night. I was dressed in black and met up with my daughter's kindergarten teacher, who was also dressed in black. In the next scene we were climbing this white arch/walkway that looked like the Arch in St. Louis. When we began to climb the arch I realized we were very high up over a six lane highway. I told my daughter's teacher I wasn't going to look down but only look straight ahead, because the heights were scaring me. I remember closing my eyes to focus on taking one step at a time, one foot in front of the other. Then at some point my daughter's teacher grabbed me from behind and carried me to the other side. In the last scene, I was being chased by three demonic men at night still. I was able to run into a parking garage and find a car that was unlocked. I jumped into the car and put in reverse thinking I"m finally safe. Something told me to check the rear view mirror to see if the demonic men were hiding in the back seat. To my surprise I found a three year old boy, and two year old girl in the back seat. As I was driving away, a mother came frantically running out into the street saying someone had taken her children. I stopped the car and got out to tell the mother what happened, and that I didn't realize her children were in the car, I was only trying to get to safety.
Wow what an intense dream! Let's break it down. I believe my daughter's teacher represented Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit leads, guides, and teaches us all things (John 14:26). The white arch represented the highway or the way of the Lord. While down below dipicted the highway of man. Matthew 7:13-14 says,“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide isthe gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" The fact that we were both dressed in black and traveling in the middle of night when darkness covers and hides, shows at times the Lord will orchestrate covert operations to advance you. I believe the darkness represented how the enemy can't see us advancing in this season, because we are hidden in Christ (Colossians 3:3). At times, the Father hides us in the spirit realm to lessen the warfare. It reminds me of the story in Acts 9 when many were plotting to kill Paul and they snuck him out of the city in the middle of the night. I believe the Father is covering and advancing many of His secret operatives in this season. In the promotion many are walking in new heights and paths of the Lord they have not experienced before. Don't fear. The Lord is sending His helper (Holy Spirit) or other strong believers to help you advance and navigate when you are weary or scared. I was reminded of Psalm 73:2 when David said, "But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold." The Father has you. Psalm 18:33 declares, "He makes my feet like those of a deer and gives me sure footing on high places." Keep your focus on the Lord and ahead to where He's taking you, don't look down!
In the last part of the dream, the demonic men were chasing after me and I was able to find a car to escape in. I believe many of you are weary and trying to run or escape because the warfare has been so intense. Sometimes in an attempt to escape the warfare, we just want to check out. When I looked in the rear view mirror I was expecting to see the men chasing after me, but I saw two young children. I believe the children represents the next generation. I was reminded this isn't just about me, but about the next generation too. How I respond to the warfare I face now, will affect the generations to come. You carry nations and generations within you.
In this hour the Father is raising up pure prophetic voices. There is a cost to pay, and a narrow road to travel. Don't be weary in well doing. The Father is releasing a fresh measure of grace and strength, and advancing you to where the enemy can't touch you. It's time to be brace and start walking in new heights. You're making the way for the next generation.
