When I was praying and fellowshipping with one of my prayer partners yesterday, I found myself bewailing the fact that in all the years I’ve known the Lord, not once did I tell anyone: “Silver and gold have I none, but what I have I give you.” (Acts 3: 6) There have been a few times that instantaneous healings took place that I had faith for, but they were minor healings like an injured foot and head aches and yes, there were healings that took place during a stretched period of time, like my son-in-law’s who had stage four prostate cancer over ten years ago. Visions were given to me at that time concerning his healing: The first one was of him as a skeleton coming up out of a grave and the next was of three giant shields forming a tent-like structure that completely covered him, but I did not have the boldness to tell him that it was a “done deal.” There was no “stepping out by faith” with me decreeing the words: “What I have, I give unto you!” Many others also prayed and believed for his healing as well, but no one, to my knowledge, spoke it out in full assurance. However, that’s about to change for those of us who have never said these words. Hallelujah!
When I woke up in the morning two days ago, the first thing I heard was: “A burning bush experience,” but I had no idea of what the Lord wanted me to understand about it. However, a little glimpse came during the conversation I had with this sister in Christ: I found myself saying impromptu: “Silver and gold have I none, but what I have to give to you is….. a new day!” Prior to speaking this out, the Lord told us during our prayer time that we were no longer “second class citizens,” and both of us were perplexed about it as we had not viewed ourselves in that way. The Lord has told us that His thoughts aren’t our thoughts and He didn’t mean this word the way we took it. I believe the Lord wanted us to realize by this is that as long as we only have the pentecostal experience (the 2nd experience,) still being a mixture of flesh and spirit, indeed we are 2nd class citizens. One of the major purposes of the baptism of the Holy Ghost is for the filthiness of the flesh and the spirit to be consumed by God’s FIRE in order for us to come to the end of Self-rule.” With that being accomplished, we will be like burning bushes of fire that never go out. Yay: ministers of fire. THEN we can go forth like Moses telling all the like-pharaohs in our lives that “I Am” sent us…. even with “I am that I am” identities doing the will of God manifesting His presence through us.
The burning bush experience marked Mose’s commission into his calling and I believe that those who are God’s firstfruits are being commissioned NOW. My prayer partner was given a dream a while back having the burning bush in it which lets me know God is revealing that the time is at hand for the kind of ministry Moses had to be coming forth in the overcomers. Moses had to be on the backside of a desert for 40 years to learn God’s WAYS, which the children of Israel did not know, knowing only His acts. It took a long time for Moses to be prepared and likewise for us. Many in Christendom have not learned His ways, but those who come into the third experience of fulfilling the Feast of Tabernacles, having all their carnal flesh burned away… yay! having Christ fully formed in them, are the ones being commissioned now to bring in the “NEW DAY.” We are going on into perfection, no longer seeing as through a glass darkly as we leave Pentecost and all the elementary principles behind. There’s a reason the Daystars have “day” as part of their name: When the daystar arises in our hearts and we no longer have darkness in them, we bring in the new “DAY,” being the “children of the day.”
There’s a following step though that I believe must be fulfilled type and shadow-wise before we move into our destiny of setting creation free. At a lodging place along the way, the Lord met Moses and sought to put him to death because he had not circumcised his son. His wife Zipporah intervened and circumcised him herself, calling her husband a “bloody bridegroom.” I believe what it represents must be done concerning the new man (son) raised up in us. I do not have a full revelation on this except that every aspect of the flesh must be cut off before we can go forth having the fullness of “life-giving” power. Moses nearly lost his life because of neglecting to circumcise his son, and anything we have neglected to do must be addressed now.
I had a dream last night that might have some clues in it about the last things to be accomplished before the commission can be fulfilled. In the first part of the dream I was seated on the rim of a toilet, not on the seat, doing what one does on “the throne.” I don’t believe that it’s by chance that a toilet is called “the throne,” because we can’t rule with Christ unless all we would glory in is seen as dung and done away with, along with doing away with our anger about the things that “piss us off.” The dream tells me I was not yet seated on the throne, but was almost there being on the edge “rim” of it.
In the next part of the dream, “Suzette,” a friend whose name “means “Lily” (pure) was in it and another friend, “Catherine,” whose name also means “pure,” was cooking my food over FIRE. That two of my friends had name meanings that are the same is a witness that the message is about “purity. I had been microwaving my food and that way of preparing it was no longer to be used because the time of “small waves” and what is man-made is over! I believe there’s more to be understood through this representation, but what is clear is that what will be coming forth now will be pure. The commission has been given and the circumcision of the “next” generation is at hand. Remember that while Joshua and Caleb had faith to enter into the promised land, they couldn’t until the following generation was prepared to go with them. Zipporah called Moses a “bloody bridegroom” and I had these thoughts about it: Regeneration has to do with blood and connecting it with the bridegroom may be indicating the coming of the bridegroom and the changing of our genes may take place at the same time. This is just a thought… not a “Thus saith the Lord” word.
What I do know for sure is that we’ve got a hungry world out there moaning and groaning for food that will satisfy them… for the fire in the people of God manifesting the glory of cleansing power. Only the ones who have been purified FIRST, becoming ministers of fire themselves, can do it and say: “Silver and gold, have I none, but what I have I give you: even “FIRE” to set the world on fire…
“ For behold, the day is coming that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that is coming shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness zarise with healing in his wings; and you shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.” (Malachi 4: 1-3)
A New day is coming!
