Mantle of the Firstborn

“God of Wonders” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

John 5:19 (VOICE) Jesus: The truth is that the Son does nothing on His own; all these actions are led by the Father. The Son watches the Father closely and then mimics the work of the Father.

My child, you are one that faithfully follows in My footsteps. As a child who delights in mimicking the actions of their father, you have also delighted in closely watching and keeping My ways. It fills My heart with such joy to see that you love the things that I love and have matured into My image and likeness as a result. You dwell in childlike faith, trust, and innocence, so much so that you often do not see just how much of Me there is in you. In you, child, I am well pleased.

You have come to a new level, the day of your inheritance. Today, I am calling you to transition into a new role and the fullness of your anointing. Receive the mantle and blessing of the firstborn, recognizing that the Spirit imparted to you is the same that dwelled within My Messiah, My firstborn son. Just as He ministered to the newborn and babes in the faith, I call you to do the same. As you reach out to nurture the young, My Spirit will bring to remembrance the early days of your faith. The Spirit will show you how to reflect My patience and mercy. You will have the wisdom to bring correction that is balanced with the fruit of gentleness. You will teach others what I have taught you, and you will impart the same comfort that I have imparted to you. Even more, you will set many hearts aflame by sharing the same passionate love for My Word as I have shared it with you.

Firstborn children do as their parents do and their behavior is a model for the younger members of the house to follow. So it is the same in My household. While I am making you aware of the greater responsibility that now rests upon your shoulders, never forget that your Father always walks with you. Continue to hold my hand and operate in that childlike faith, trust, and innocence. Shine with the humility and a teachable heart that pleases Me so. There is no burden on you to lead or make anything happen. As you continue to abide in My Presence, an atmosphere of miracles and My glorious power will surround you and demonstrate to the world that you are my very own.

Remain in My Love

My dear anointed ones, weighty is your call to speak and act on My behalf. It is weighty with great honor for you are My chosen vessels. However, this mantle was never meant to be a weighty burden to you. It will only become so if you do not abide in Me. It is not your responsibility to carry the weight of your calling or your gifts. I have appointed you to carry the weight of My glory, the essence of Who I Am. I, in turn, carry you by the power of My Spirit. In this way, My yoke is made easy and My burden light.

To do the work I have called you to, you must remain in My love. Live in My love. My world must become your predominate dwelling place, not the earth. Like a sea animal that is capable of living on both the land and in the waters, make every effort to return to the deep waters of My Spirit in between your daily activities in the world.  When you are immersed in Me, I pour all of My love and life into you. This empowers you to pour out My love and life into the dry places in the earth.

Yes, there is nowhere that you can go where I Am not. In Me, all creation lives and moves and has its being. Yet the paradox of your existence is that, although you are always in Me, you must work to renew your intimate connection to Me through the practice of abiding. Take every opportunity to abide, beloved. Draw aside and shift your gaze back towards Me, the lover of your soul. As much as possible, seek My ways and My thoughts.

By seeking your resting place in Me, it is there that I will recalibrate your attitude and perspective so that it remains in harmony with Me. If you do not do this, you will begin to feel your attitudes shift outside the frame of My love. You will find that your strength in Me begins to wane. It is then that you will feel the weight of your calling as you begin to resonate with the frequency of the world instead of the frequency of My love. Your thoughts will become misaligned in varying degrees if you do not return to My Presence for refreshing.

Precious one, there is grace in this process, but this is the most vital key to your mission on earth. I want you to remember that, when you feel the weight of your calling, that is the time to seek Me. Do not hesitate. Do not look to the world for strength. Do not lament and beat yourself up in your human weaknesses, for you were never meant to go it alone. Return to My love and your resting place in Me, for this is where you were made to dwell. From this place of unity with Me, I will renew your strength and empower you to do every good work that I have called you to.

Matthew 11:29-30 (TPT) Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.

John 15:5 (AMPC) I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

Walking in Humble Authority

“The Alabaster Jar” (Featuring the Hebrew letter dalet)

Acts 3:6 (VOICE) Peter: I want to give you something, but I don’t have any silver or gold. Here’s what I can offer you: stand up and walk in the name of Jesus of Nazareth, the Anointed One.

In the ancient pictograph language, the Hebrew letter dalet represents a door or an impoverish and humble man. It is preceded by the letter gimel which is representative of a camel or rich man. Within this area of the Hebrew alphabet, there is the picture of a rich man who stoops down (like a camel with a burden) to give to a poor and humble man. It is the picture of our relationship with God and our relationship with our fellow man. It is also a powerful key to flowing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

In Acts 3:6, Peter addresses a crippled and poor man. Peter’s pockets are empty of silver and gold. One could say that he is impoverished too. And yet, he gives the crippled man what he does have—and it’s certainly not chump change. Peter stoops down like a camel to lift the poor man up. Power from on high flows through Peter, and the man is miraculously healed! Peter’s physical pockets were empty, and yet he became the vessel that supernaturally met this man’s need!

Healing Oil

Luke 8:43-48 (TPT) In the crowd that day was a woman who had suffered greatly for twelve years from slow bleeding. Even though she had spent all that she had on healers, she was still suffering. Pressing in through the crowd, she came up behind Jesus and touched the tassel of his prayer shawl. Instantly her bleeding stopped and she was healed.

You have grasped at the hem of My garment, and now flows forth the healing oil of YHVH Rapha. What was once broken in you is now healed. Arise and go forth, Beloved. Fly with might, armed for battle with the new wings I have given you. Indeed, your rebirth has come through many trials and tribulations. You are now a new creation, made in My image and likeness. Therefore, walk boldly in the power of My Spirit and in My authority. I send you into the world to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy.

In this fresh flow and impartation of My Spirit, a new song will flow from your lips. This song will glorify Me and prepare the way for Me in the earth. My heart—the heart of your Bridegroom—is at the center of everything that you do. You will speak with wisdom, tender love, authority, and encouragement to those who ache for the hope of new life. The healing oil of My Spirit will drip from your lips, and it will fall upon and mend the wounds of every heart that you encounter.

My Bride, you are loved. You are treasured. You are healed. Most of all, you are empowered through Me. As I continue to renew you day by day, give unto others as it has been given unto you. Just as I impart My Spirit and My healing to you, you are commissioned to do the same for others. Now, go forth, clothed in My might and My love, and filled to overflowing with My Spirit!

Mark 16:17-18 (VOICE) And these signs will follow those who believe: they will be able to cast out demons in My name, speak with new tongues, take up serpents, drink poison without being harmed, and lay their hands on the sick to heal them.

1 Corinthians 12:7-9 (VOICE) Each believer has received a gift that manifests the Spirit’s power and presence. That gift is given for the good of the whole community. The Spirit gives one person a word of wisdom, but to the next person the same Spirit gives a word of knowledge. Another will receive the gift of faith by the same Spirit, and still another gifts of healing—all from the one Spirit.

Draw Upon Your Inheritance

James 1:17 (TPT) Every gift God freely gives us is good and perfect, streaming down from the Father of lights, who shines from the heavens with no hidden shadow or darkness and is never subject to change.

My children, there is a day that comes when I call each of you to put away the ways of childhood and to step into full maturity and your inheritance as sons of God. As My sons, I have provided the finest robes for you—My very own robes. Light is My garment and so, you too will be arrayed in the light of My glory, My very nature. Clothed as My royal heirs, walk the land as My Firstborn Son walked. Shine as the light of the world, and utterly drive out the darkness that is before you.

Every earthly father is called to pour all that he is and all that he knows into his children so that they will be equipped to build upon his legacy. Although I exist without limits, as your Heavenly Father I do no less for My children. I pour out My Spirit—as much of Myself as you are willing to contain—that you may be fully equipped to be about My business in the earth. I withhold no good gift from My children, therefore, I offer you the very best of who I Am. Simply, ask, beloved, ask.

Each day that you arise, just as you would clothe yourself in earthly garments, be intentional and seek revelation for how I have clothed you by My Spirit. Ask Me to equip you for the days ahead. As you encounter obstacles, ask Me for exactly what you need. By constantly asking, you will draw upon the multi-faceted anointing of the Holy Spirit which abides in you. The more frequently you ask with a heart to receive, the stronger and more natural the anointing will flow through you. Allow Me to refine and purify your faith so that the flow will be unhindered and untainted. As you draw upon My Spirit, you will walk as children of the day, able to see by the Light of My Spirit and fully able to navigate any situation that comes your way. Joyfully draw upon your inheritance, My children, and let the fullness of Christ be revealed in you.

Romans 8:19 (VOICE) For all of creation is waiting, yearning for the time when the children of God will be revealed.

Prepared for Such a Time as This

Vision 11/07/2017: I saw a white and tan-speckled owl sitting on a stool in a movie studio. A makeup artist was sitting in front of the owl with a brush in her hand as though she were painting the owl. I was amazed at how this live bird was in the studio, sitting still and allowing the artist to paint it! It reminded me of clips I have watched in Jim Henson’s Creature Shop as they create different types of muppets. But it also reminded me of how a makeup artist prepares an actor for their role. 

As I pondered this vision several things came to me. In recent months, the Lord has been speaking to me about the times ahead. His glory is set to return to the earth in magnificent ways. The Lord has been preparing His people to steward His glory through rigorous “dress rehearsals”. Long have we practiced what we’ve learned from Him, individually and corporately. In fact, many individuals have rehearsed God’s Word and ways in their hearts in seasons of hiddenness.

Yet the time is approaching for the revealing of the sons of God (Romans 8:19). These manifested sons and daughters will soon be called to step into the spotlight of the “world stage”. When we do, we will be called to walk in Yeshua’s role in a sense. We will each walk as Yeshua walked but in a double portion of His Spirit.

Much of the preparation for this important role is done for us. Christ is the one who dresses us and beautifies us. He has also promised to fill our mouths with His Word when we need it (Luke 12:12); Christ has given us the “script” so to speak. As we rest in Him, it is the anointing of His Spirit that truly does the work and equips us for our roles.
