Scripture: Isaiah 61 & 62
And the Lord would say to you, "That it is time to come into My dwelling
place. It is time to draw aside. It is time to stop and to look and to listen. For your redemption draweth nigh. And know
that I am coming in the clouds. And many are coming with Me. And know that the day and the hour will surely come. Lift up
your eyes unto the hills. Lift up your eyes unto the Lord for I am your help and your strength. And I will strengthen you
and I will help you. Lift up your eyes. Lift up your eyes."
And the Lord would say to you, "That it is My desire to anoint you. It
is My desire to use you above and beyond even your wildest dreams. Know that I’m anointing you to carry out My gospel.
Know that I’m anointing you to do the work of the ministry. Know that it is you that sets the captives free. And know
that this day, I’m pouring out on you new wine and new oil. A new anointing. Know that you have been chosen for such
a time as this. It is time to come into your calling. It is time to leave the captivity behind. It is time to leave behind
even those things that are old and step into the new things of the Spirit. Know that I’m going to use you in a mighty
way. Know that I’m calling the body of Christ to come up. Come up! Come up!"
And the Lord would say to you, "That I would desire to plant you. I desire
to make you a strong tree. I desire that your boughs would grow. The boughs of your tree would grow large. And many would
come and nest underneath them. Lo! How I long to call you. I long to draw you to come unto Me."
And the Lord would say to you, "That I’ve called you, this day,
My ministers. I’ve called you, this day, as the priest of the Most High God. Know that this is the day you must put
away childish things. This is the day you must come into the very presence of the Living God. And know that all that is in
you that is not holy, shall be burned up in My presence. And know that I am causing you to lay down all those things that
you cannot take with you where you are going. Know that I have called you for such a time as this. Know that it is you that
I will use. But you must lay down. You must lay down. You must lay down all of the worldly things. All of the hindrances.
And you must lay down your own desires."
And know that this day I am calling you into blessing. And know that this
day My promises for your offspring shall not be denied. All of My promises are yeah and amen. And I’m coming to you
today as the God of Promise. Know that your promise has not been stolen. Know that your promise has not even been delayed,
but there has been a timing. It is a timing of the Lord to bring in the promise of God. And know that your offspring shall
walk in your ways. And your offspring shall declare the wonders of the Most High God. And know that you have passed an inheritance
to them that is real. That is real. That is real.
Know that I am calling you this day, to adorn and dress yourself with
My anointing. Know that you’ve tried to dress yourself with the world and it didn’t fit. Know that you’ve
tried other people’s anointing and they did not fit. But know that there’s an anointing for you. A garment of
praise. A robe of righteousness that fit you perfectly. Oh! That even accentuates the shape that you are. Brings into focus
all that I’ve called you to be. Know that I’m calling you into a time of supplication. A time of prayer and fasting.
Know that you are coming into a time of drawing near to Me, and intimacy and into the deep things of the river of God. Know
that there have only been waters that have been ankle deep and knee deep and hip deep. But know, in this day, I am giving
you waters to swim in. Waters that will not overcome you. But waters that will carry you into the next season.
And I’m calling you this day with a new name. I am giving a new
ensign. I’m giving you a new sign. Know that the name I’m calling you with, is one of love. Know that I’ve
changed your name from forgotten, forsaken, and unloved, to those that are beautiful. Those that are lovely and those that
are loved of the Lord. Know that I’m changing your name today from desolate to happiness, to contentment, to joy unspeakable
and full of glory.
And I would say to you that I am calling unto you. The sound that you
were taught today is deep inside of you and you must release the sound to Me. Call to Me with a sound of heaven and I will
answer. I’m calling you today to join in the sound of the earth. To join in the sound of worship. The sound of praise.
The sound of My glory.
And the Lord would say to you, "Today, the gates of heaven are wide open.
The gates before you are wide open and you must go through, go through, go through. You must posses the gates of your enemies.
You must possess the gates of the enemy. Go through the gates with boldness. With fasting and prayer, and with the sound of
a trumpet. Go through the gate!"
And the Lord would say to you, "That I have sought you out. I have sought
you out and I have sought you out. With loving kindness and tenderness have I drawn you to My side. I have sought you with
tender mercies for even though your iniquities were great, I gave you tender mercy. Even though you did not know how you had
sinned against Me, I gave you mercy. And know that I’m seeking you. I’m seeking you and I’m calling you.
I’m calling you. And the Lord’s coming. He is coming to a people who are prepared for Him. He is coming to a people
who have called out to Him. He is coming to a people whose praise has drawn Him into their presence."
And know that the day and the hour is not far off. The day and hour of
salvation has already come. Know that all you have to do is call upon the name of the Lord and you shall be saved. You shall
be delivered and set forth. Know that I have set before you My diadem, My royalty, and My glory. Know that all you have to
do is come out from the place that you’re in and enter into My presence. Know that I’ve called you with an everlasting
call. I’ve called you with My loving kindness. That I’m drawing you closer each day. And know, know, know this;
that I’m calling you to Myself alone and I will not share you with the world. Know that I’m calling you into holiness
and righteousness. And know that you’ll rise with power. Know that you’ll cast out demons. Know that you’ll
raise the dead and heal the sick. Know that you’ll be translated from place to place. That My glory shall be seen on
this earth. Know that I’m going to do a new thing and that I’m going to do a fast thing. And I’m going to
bring it about in a way you thought naught. But know that I’m going to use you. Know that I desire you. You are the
desire of My heart. And know that I’m coming in power. Know that I’m coming in power. Thus saith the Lord.
