Habakkuk 2:14 – “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”
Several times over the last week few weeks I’ve caught myself saying “Here comes the Glory!” We know that it has ALWAYS been the will of God for the whole earth to be full of His Glory. In Isaiah 60:1-2 the prophet makes this powerful declaration: “Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the Glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, and His Glory will be seen upon you.”
The prophet spoke of 2 things: the darkness, which covers the earth, and the deep darkness which covers the people. For His people, the King of Glory is coming with salvation, healing and deliverance. He’s coming to BREAK the stronghold of deep darkness that keeps the multitude in bondage to sin and death. Isaiah 9:2 – “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined.”
In a recent dream I heard a loud rumbling and felt a strong shaking. I went and looked out of the window over the ocean and saw a massive WAVE that was several stories high and stretched as far as my eyes could see. Golden sun rays danced off the top of it and I knew I was looking at the GLORY WAVE.
This massive wave was RUMBLING, QUAKING and ROARING powerfully. The water was crashing down like a humongous waterfall. It was like a wall of water yet it was also a wave and it wanted to do what a wave was supposed to do. I became aware that it was being held back by something that was preventing it from coming in to crash down upon the land.
Suddenly I found myself on the other side of this wall of water. I was a distance away observing a strong muscular man that was standing with his back to a massive DOOR that was within the wall of water. He was pushing with all his might against the door. It then came to me that he was holding the door to prevent it from opening.
My immediate first thought was that this was the enemy holding the door shut but as soon as I had the thought, the voice of the Lord came to me. He said “I am ready to release My Glory but My House still needs to get ready.” Then I understood that the man holding the door shut was the KEEPER of the Glory of the Lord and He was holding back the Glory Wave at the command of the Father.
As I looked at the Father’s supernatural Glory Wave, I knew that His Glory is not only full of LIFE and LIGHT but it also has a very DEEP and an unsatisfied HUNGER for SOULS.
In the same dream I then had a vision. I saw a multitude of people rushing into a large building that I recognized to be a church due to its setting. The look upon their faces was very obvious; it was that of bewilderment, fear and confusion. The people that were seated in the pews of the church turned to watch the flood of people come in with surprise and shock but they also seemed annoyed for having their cosy, well-organized service disrupted in this manner.
The multitude began to cry out loudly: “What shall we do? Tell us what to do!” But the people in the church just stared back at them, blank-faced, and had no answer for them. So the multitude turned and ran out of the church and into the streets again and the service resumed. I was very grieved in my spirit and I asked of the Lord ‘What can I do?’ He replied “The harvest is ripe but the workers are few. The House needs laborers. Prepare them. Teach them. Equip them. Activate them. Get them ready for the next wave!”
Church, it’s time to REPAIR and PREPARE the House to bring in the harvest – the lost, the sick, the weary, the scattered. Matthew 9:35-38 “Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
TRAIN TO REIGN
I heard the Lord say “There is still time and it starts now!” You only need to be willing to be used powerfully for His Glory and by Him. He’s calling forth the apostolic leadership in His House to prepare the Body for the coming Glory. Raise up new leaders, equip them to train and reign for this has always been the purpose of the Lord. (Ephesians 4:11). Activate the anointing in the House: the apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, pastoral and the teaching anointing. Begin to empower, equip and release God’s people into their divine destiny and calling.
Prepare for the next wave!
“Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of Glory shall come in. Who is this King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle.” (Psalm 24:7,8)
