For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

Mighty One of God

Destroying Strongholds” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

{vision} I saw a giant reaching into a storm, taking a bolt of lightning, and throwing it to the ground. Next, I saw a child of God in the same place, climbing up on a ladder and doing the same thing as the giant—taking a bolt of lighting and throwing it to the ground.

Lighting can represent power and authority. All power and authority ultimately belong to God, but He anoints His vessels to enforce His will. This particular anointing is known as the Spirit of Might (Isaiah 11:2).

Miracle-working power and authority fall under this anointing. It was demonstrated most often by those who were called “mighty ones” or, in Hebrew, gibborim. In Hebrew, “gibbor” speaks of a strong, mighty, and valiant person. The judges of Israel were gibborim and were supernaturally empowered to enforce God’s will in the earth.

Today, the children of God have the same call, tasked with overriding the authority of the enemy and anything contrary to the will of God. As a child of God, you are an emissary of El Gibhor—Mighty God—an agent sent to act on His behalf. Just like a police officer is a delegated authority of the law (and who carries a “shield” or badge representing that authority), in the same way you are called to uphold God’s Word or law. You are both a guardian of God’s people and a servant of the Most High. Keep your ears dedicated to hearing and obeying the voice of El Gibhor and be unapologetic when it comes to guarding His ways.

In the Form of Christ

“One Body (Unity in Christ)” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

{vision} I saw different American Olympic athletes posing as if for a photo shoot meant to display their new team uniforms. What stood out to me was that, although the athletes had different types of uniforms based on their sport, all of the uniforms used the same set of colors. (Royal blue was the predominant color.) The consistency of the color is what would make it clear to others that they were all on the same team.

As I pressed in for the download for this vision, I was led to look up the definition of the word uniform. As a noun, the Concise Oxford English Dictionary defines uniform as “the distinctive clothing worn by members of the same organization or body or by children attending certain schools.” Looking at the etymology of the word, uniform is derived from the latin uniformis, uni- meaningone; having or consisting of oneand form meaning “body, shape, or configuration.” Immediately, I thought of the fact that humans are made in the image or “form” of God. 

Deuteronomy 6:4 highlights an important aspect of God’s nature; it tells us that “The LORD is our God, the LORD is one.” In this verse, the word for one in Hebrew is echad. Echad has a variety of nuances, including uniqueness, singularity, and compound unity. Certainly, the Body of Christ is meant to express echad with many members acting together as one. Though each of us has a unique purpose and function in the Body, we all work towards a common goal—that upward call of God in Christ (Philippians 3:14). 

Our unity is akin to the unity among Olympic athletes; though they each may compete in different sports, an individual’s actions will ultimately reflect upon their entire team as well as their nation. Olympic athletes represent a nation’s best as far as prowess in their sport. They train hard and are proud to compete on behalf of their country. I also imagine they must also be proud to wear their uniforms, the very symbol of their role as an Olympic athlete.

It is much the same for those of us who follow the call of Christ. For by the Spirit, we train hard to crucify our flesh and become mighty athletes of the Spirit. We are proud to walk the earth and represent the Kingdom of Heaven. Most of all, we display our unity by putting on Christ. When clothed with love, anyone who encounters us knows which team we are proudly playing for. 

Galatians 3:27 (NLT) And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.

Galatians 5:22-23 (TPT) But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

John 13:35 (NKJV) By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.

The Message of Restoration

Glorious Restoration” by Meghan William, Dyed4you Art

I recently had a conversation with the Father regarding the season of life I’ve found myself in. I confessed that I was finding this season challenging because it seemed like He had me spending so much time and energy focusing on myself and my life. Logically, I understand why; I’ve spent most of my life so focused on caring for others, that there are many areas of my life that are in ruins. I most certainly need the restoration that God is bringing!

I had to admit that I’m finding it painful to feel so full of the Word and many life-giving revelations, but I’m not currently spending as much time as I would like pouring that out onto others. However, the Father’s response to my reflections left me speechless. He said, “I’m empowering you to rebuild your life right now so that you don’t lose sight of the fact that the message of the gospel is for you first. You can’t give until you first receive.” 

And suddenly, it was so clear why He has been leading me in the direction that He has. If my life is to be a message that reflects the truth of God’s Word and the abundant life that it brings, then I must first position myself to fully receive the power of the Kingdom in my life. I saw that while I may have a desire to fill my cup with the water of the Word, I don’t always allow myself to take the full drink that I need and receive my own portion of God’s refreshing. As with other areas of my life, I am quick to think about the needs of others while neglecting my own.

While self-focus can certainly be a concern in our fallen human nature, we must be careful to strive for balance in all things. For how can we carry the message of restoration, unless we first permit God to mend the fallen places in our lives? Now, this doesn’t mean that we have to have our lives completely together before we run with the message of the gospel. Instead, we must not lose sight of the fact that our life is the message. We become the tablet that God writes His Word upon.

The power of God’s Word is capable of bringing transformative power in our lives and at a level that is far higher than what we have seen in present times. We are not just here to share the testimony of saints of the past and those around us. We’re here to receive the Kingdom, and then testify to the abundant life that we find in Christ. When we fully receive the Word, we most certainly position ourselves to effectively pour it back out onto the world.

John 10:10 (NKJV) The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have [it] more abundantly.

Amos 9:11-15 (VOICE) After that happens, on the day I choose, I will rebuild the dilapidating house of David from its ruins, Mend the holes in it, rebuild its wreckage,and restore it just the way it used to be. Then they may possess what remains of Edom, including every person among the outsiders who have been called by My name.

Moving at the Speed of Grace

{vision} I saw a sign on a road showing that the speed limit was 55. There was a blurred line through the middle of the 55, and I knew there were words printed there.

I saw this vision just before I opened my eyes one recent morning. I sensed this was a “sign” for the spiritual speed limit for my day. Immediately, I knew the “55” represented a multiplication of grace. I also recognized the words that I couldn’t read symbolized a “word” that God had for me through this vision. This word would bring clarity to a repeated message He had been speaking in the Spirit: “Slow down.”

I have been hearing “slow down” at various times each day for months. It usually happens while I’m working or trying to juggle multiple tasks. At other times, I hear it when I’m not necessarily busy doing anything, but I may be busy thinking through many things. 

When I hear “slow down,” it always triggers an irritation within me. In my walk with God, I’ve learned that if His words irritate me, it’s always because I don’t truly understand the meaning behind them. His heart is always loving towards us, even in correction. And when understanding comes, I always experience a sense of peace. Therefore, I know that irritating words are a sign that the Father desires to address an area of wounding within my heart.

A Listening Heart

“Eyes of Mercy” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Recently, God has been taking me through a season to further cultivate a “listening heart.” I was impacted by the journey of my young friend, Stephen, who is just setting out on the road to law school. His mother told me of the mediation class he took that set him off on this journey. 

She said that Stephen did very well in the roleplaying mediation sessions. This was not surprising to her considering the fact that Stephen is a natural peacemaker. When there’s conflict between people, she said, “He’s very good at listening and empathizing with all sides involved.” 

Since I had just begun new spiritual training that involved “listening,” the Holy Spirit highlighted her words that day with fire. Isn’t our Divine Mediator just like Stephen? Our King is able to listen to every prayer, petition, and request in the earth and respond with fairness and justice. He does not show partiality in judgment nor does he pervert justice. Even more amazing, He is able to balance the scales of justice as a Father! He listens closely to all of His children and does not ignore one of us.

God began to stir my heart with this realization. As one who is introverted yet very nurturing, I’m naturally designed to be empathetic. I listen with my heart and pick up on subtle social cues with those around me. And as much as possible, I desire to listen with an intent to understand instead of an intent to respond.

However, my Heavenly Father began to challenge me to listen with equity in a way I never expected. He asked me to listen on a deeper level and become more attuned with the person I seemed to ironically know the least about—myself. 

I began to realize how often I fail to stop to listen to my own thoughts, feelings, needs, and desires. In the name of death to self, I often dismiss the internal voice of self in favor of serving others. Without realizing it, I had learned to make certain decisions motivated by the fear of punishment instead of a love that was able to encompass God, my neighbor, and myself.

While we certainly are called to emulate our Messiah by putting others first, I realized that to completely overlook any individual—even ourselves—is an injustice. By factoring myself out of every justice equation, I wasn’t being a very fair mediator. I wasn’t listening to all sides involved. 

To be sovereign heirs in the Kingdom of Heaven, God calls us to rule with equity and righteousness. Now seeking to make righteous judgments that involve ourselves may seem to be a conflict of interest. However, I’ve come to see how important it is to “stop, look, and listen” in such instances. While I may not be able to completely trust myself to make an unbiased ruling, I can stop and look up to My Heavenly Father, who is on the throne. I can draw upon His counsel and listen for His wise and balanced response in every matter.

1 Kings 3:12 (EXB) I will do what you asked. I will give you wisdom and understanding [a wise and discerning/listening heart] that is greater than anyone has had in the past or will have in [will make you unlike anyone in the past or in] the future.

As it is in Heaven

“Watch and Pray” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

I remember when the Father dramatically changed the way I approached prophetic intercession. I had a friend who would often share prayer requests with me. Because I’m an intercessor, she knew I would always be willing to stop and pray. One day, she sent me a prayer request for a friend of hers. I had barely uttered a word of my prayer when the Father suddenly downloaded a lengthy vision to me. I sensed it was for her friend, so I wrote down the vision along with the revelation, which came as I wrote. 

The same scenario happened about two more times in the span of a week or so, when the Father finally said to me, “You know, when you pray, you can ask me for revelation about the matter, right?” In my spirit, I suddenly saw things so clearly. So often, I approached prayer from the perspective of the one requesting it. I would automatically pray in agreement or struggle to find the words myself. I also prayed not expecting that the Father would want to have a dialogue about it. But that string of divine “interruptions” taught me that, when we go into the secret place, we are going directly before our King. He not only hears our petitions, but He always has something to say about each earthly matter we face.

Since that time, I have never prayed the same way. When someone passes along a prayer request, I go into the secret place intent on finding out what Heaven has to say about the matter first. As Romans 8:26 tells us, we don’t truly know what to pray for. So, I have learned to seek the Father’s will for each prayer request. I will either pray forth what He shows me, or I will share it with that person if He so desires. 

The Father has shown me that prophetic intercession is about praying from our positions in heavenly places. It truly removes each burden off our shoulders and places it before the One who already has the answers. Through prophetic insight, we can pave the way for the Father’s will to be done “on earth as it is in heaven.” 

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.

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

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.

God’s Government in California: Man Your Stations!

Vision 11/04/2017: I saw a huge wall of water coming to hit an entire city. This did not feel at all like a bad thing; in fact, I knew this wave represented a great move of God. It was massive and not so much a tidal wave as a wall of water that I knew would come and completely sweep through the city. I did not sense any destruction in this.

I prayed and asked the Lord what this symbolized. He said, “Region. California. On the brink of collapse. Man your stations.

In my spiritual language “collapse” means to humble. It is the concept of the Hebrew letter dalet, which symbolizes a poor and humble man, a man in need. It is not so much about literal financial bankruptcy as it is God bankrupting the enemy of his power. Anyone who trusts in the things of the world instead of in God will discover their deep need of God once they see who the true source of all life and complete satisfaction comes from.

A Sharper Image of Us

Vision 10/07/2017: I felt like I was standing in front of a wall looking right at a mirror. The Lord was standing right beside me and He adjusted the mirror as one would adjust the side mirror of a car. Instead of a reflection of myself and the Lord, I saw Mount Everest. Yet I truly felt this was an accurate reflection. “A sharper image of us,” the Lord said.

Over the summer, I’ve had multiple visions concerning walls, the writing or Word of God on the wall, and the eye of God drawn on the wall. All of them have had to do with God looking at me or speaking to me, and trying to make sense of what He is saying through His rhema words to me. It all has had to do with perception. How do we see ourselves and how do we see Him?

The Many Dimensions of His Word

Vision 10/16/2017: I felt like I was in space and confined within an invisible box. I moved around inside of the box bracing my feet along all the borders; I wore Wonder Woman’s boots (representing standing on God’s Word). Suddenly, I grew angel’s wings, and I took off out of the box as if it were not there at all. It was as if, by growing wings, I had found a way out of the box. “This is meant to encourage you to grow in seeing details,” the Lord said.

This vision reminded me of videos I watched a few months ago about dimensions. They say that each new dimension in our universe or multiverse is at right angles of the last one. I saw that there was a pun in my vision between the word angel and angle. As I was rotating in the box, it felt like I was rotating and looking for that “right angle” (or righteous angle) until I found a new dimension I could go through concerning God’s Word. I also sensed this represented me growing wings of faith as a messenger of His Word.

Recently, the Lord has been teaching me things about the greater works as I meditate on His Word. He has been allowing me to turn things over and over in my head so that I can ask Him questions. I have looked at the mighty acts of His people in both the Old and New Testaments. I have thought about His saints in recent centuries. I thought about how each new “act” could at times be met with resistance to old religious mindsets. The coming of Christ Himself is just one of many things broke religious boxes.
