Make Room for My Kingdom Reign

 

Matthew 6:9-10 (TPT) Pray like this: ‘Our Father, dwelling in the heavenly realms, may the glory of your name be the center on which our lives turn. Manifest your kingdom realm, and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth, just as it is fulfilled in heaven.

Beloved, you know well the importance of intercession. You have seen the fruit that comes from taking every matter before Me so that I might move on behalf of yourself or others. Yet even now, I am calling you to a higher level. I call you to pray with a heart that is set on drawing the Kingdom of Heaven upon the earth. Pray and be open to hearing My swift response.

Just as a construction worker cannot build without plans from the architect, neither can My Body build the Kingdom without the plans that come from My mouth. Pray and keep your ears open for those plans. I will pour out Kingdom directives in response to your petitions—and at times, I will speak before your prayer has even left your mouth. My plans will surprise you, beloved. I will respond in ways and with instructions you have never considered before. Therefore, make room in your heart for what has previously been unknown. Pray and make room for My Kingdom Reign.

Truly, intercession is part of the Keys to the Kingdom. In order for you to know what to loose and bind on earth, you must maintain a receptive connection to heaven. Therefore, lean into My Spirit, for it will guide you in how you ought to pray. Live your life as a house of prayer, keeping the lines of communications open with Me always. Remember, prayer was never meant to be one way—it is an open conversation between you and I. As you make room for a constant and robust dialogue between heaven and earth, you will see My Kingdom manifest in surprising and joyous ways.

Isaiah 65:24 (NKJV) It shall come to pass That before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.

1 Corinthians 2:9-11 (VOICE) But as the Scriptures say, No eye has ever seen and no ear has ever heard and it has never occurred to the human heart All the things God prepared for those who love Him.

Rise Up

“Wake Up” – by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Rise up, My people, rise up. The alarm sounds for the time of war, and I need you to be awake and vigilant. There is much territory for the kingdom of light to take, and I have fully equipped you to cast out the kingdom of darkness. Therefore, take care not become lax and forget who you are and what I have called you to do. Resist the voice of defeat which would have you believe you are a victim of any earthly circumstance. Shake off the weariness of past battles fought in your own strength. A new day of war is ahead—a war already won by My might and My Spirit.

Behold, you are not ordinary—you are extraordinary, beloved ones. Your citizenship belongs to the Kingdom which is above. To possess a heavenly citizenship carries more weight than you realize. You are My kingly priests anointed for war, commissioned to take territory in My name. Resist the urge to become overwhelmed or discouraged by your commission; everything that you need to walk in this high calling is found in My all-encompassing Presence.

I have given you heavenly armor that will protect you from every attack of the evil one. And by My Spirit, you carry My holy vessels into the earthly battlefield. No weapon formed against you can prosper. No judgment made against you can stand. And no battle is too fierce for you, My people. For the Lion of the Tribe of Judah is always with you. When you rise up, I arise with you. When you agree to follow My lead and take new territory, I fight on your behalf. Therefore, again I say, My people, rise up! Rejoice, for your victory is always assured!

1 Peter 5:8 (AMPC) Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

Numbers 10:35 (NKJV) So it was, whenever the ark set out, that Moses said: “Rise up, O LORD! Let Your enemies be scattered, And let those who hate You flee before You.”

Numbers 23:24 (VOICE) Look at this people rise up like a lion, like a lion who gets up and does not lie down until it devours its prey, even drinking the blood of the slain.

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.

Let My Voice Roar Through You

Matthew 10:27 (NKJV) Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.

Beloved, you are one who continually sits at My feet. You eat from My hand and are eager to soak in every word that I say. As a result, you know My voice. Even more, your persistence in maintaining intimacy with Me means that you know My heart. The result of your intimacy and choice to seek Me above all else means that My voice now bubbles up from within you continually. I have rubbed off on you and there is no turning back, My love!

When I call you to step forward and speak on My behalf, do not be surprised when you are met by a storm of contrary voices. As you know, a servant is not greater than his master. If the world spoke lies against Me and tried to silence Me, then do not be surprised or alarmed that the world desires to do the same to you. Whether this storm of voices are echoes from your past or part of your present, resist the urge to come into agreement with them. For I have not called you to back down. Instead, make an effort to still yourself and find My voice again. You will know it because it roars above the rest! I speak in love and truth and faithfully declare that you are ever the apple of My eye.

Remember that your voice carries weight, beloved—on heaven and on earth. Like a musical instrument that has been shaped to bring forth a unique sound, you have been shaped and refined to speak with authority, to bring forth fresh revelation of My Word, and to release My will into the earth. I have called you by name and it is My will to see you prosper in your role as a king and priest—as My most beloved Bride who stands by My side. Resist the urge to allow fear, shame, or guilt to cause you to hold back from walking in your calling and speaking on My behalf. These things belong to the old man that was crucified, and I have raised you to newness of life. If you remain silent, then My unique message and fresh revelation through you will remain unheard. Therefore, speak the words you hear from My heart, and do not be afraid. Let My voice roar through you.

Matthew 16:19 (NKJV) And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Humble Authority – The Door to More

Toward the end of 2016, I was drawn to a new piece of prophetic art that my friend Meghan Williams made. I was scrolling through my Facebook feed one day and the post just before hers was a video teaching called “Clothed with Power from on High”. When I saw her art it spoke strongly to me. At that time, I didn’t know that she welcomed input when she made a piece. Still, I couldn’t help but tell her how the video before her Dyed4you Art post was quickened to me as being a great description for her picture.

A few weeks later she sent me a message thanking me for sharing what I saw— “Clothed with Power from on High” became the name of the piece. Of course, I decided to order that piece right away. It was a tough wait… even though it was only about a week. There are times when you know that something is a special message from our Abba Father. Once I got the piece I was very blessed by the artwork and the word, as usual.

A few weeks after receiving it, I had an encounter with the LORD where He gave me a new name. My given name is Lisa but one night He called me “Elisa”. As I puzzled over this I got a confirmation later that day that I had heard right. As I continued to seek Him about it, I was simultaneously wrestling with why I struggled with closeness with Him as my Heavenly Father.
