Big change is at hand and resistance to change is surfacing.
On Wednesday morning, February 28, 2018, I dreamt that an intense water-storm was breaking all around me, unleashing supernatural fury in lightning strokes of power that were humanly unimaginable. It was not a good storm. It was a death storm. As it began to break, I saw a daughter standing nearby, holding the hand of a little girl. We looked at each other knowingly, and without words, we decided to simply stand and hold on to each other and say “I love you” until our final breath was taken, and we died together in this terrible storm.
Revelation 12:15 And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood.
But this daughter, the young girl, and I didn’t die [Revelation 12:14]. Somehow, we survived and were now on the other side of this furious storm. I looked around the building and began to assess the aftermath of where we had stood holding on to each other in love through the storm. I found broken down walls and open windows where the water got in and should have killed us but didn’t. I mentioned all of these areas to someone that I presumed could repair them, but they seemed uninterested with my suggestions.
Then I encountered another daughter and an older woman. Both women could see firsthand, all of the changes that this water storm had brought which provoked areas within them that were still resistant to change. I worked with the women to help them embrace the changes by becoming Christ-like bridal overcomers.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.
A new sound is coming.
My dream ended with me working with a sound engineer who was teaching me how to make changes and adjustments on a mixing board to accommodate for the changes that had come in the area of sound.
When a pregnant woman’s water breaks, birth must happen. Breaking water-storms are soon coming as the deep of the spirit realm is opened and big change, or birthing is at hand. The only successful spiritual way through what is coming is Christ’s way through it. We may have gotten away with doing things our way before, but this time, our way will not work. Though death is a real threat, those who stand faithfully firm in their bridal Love for Jesus and His body will make it through this breaking water storm. A new sound is on the other side of this storm. We will be taught how to change the way we capture, process, and emit this new sound.
There is a letting-go to the crossing-over and the entering-in. We may or may not live to see the other side of all the changes that are now breaking forth upon the land and in our lives, but faith in Christ, believing that He loves us, and actively engaging in our love for each other, will carry the Day.
Satan’s end-time strategy is the same one he had at the beginning: seduce and kill. He tries to seduce us away from loving and obeying God’s word through enticements that temporarily stimulate the fallen, insatiable appetites of our body and soul described in Philippians 3:18-19. To the degree that I allow these insatiable appetites to undergo the Galatians 2:20 process of becoming “crucified with Christ” and I am hidden in Him, is to the degree that Satan will find nothing left in me to seduce, rob, and kill.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
John 10:10 the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I [Jesus] came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
Once the first birth happens, more will come.
Revelation 12:17 So the dragon was enraged with the woman and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
Romans 8:19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
Wave after wave of transformed harvesters-of-harvesters are beginning to be birthed. Those who are the Romans 8:19 “revealed sons of God” will bear the evidence of the Ephesian 4:13 fullness of Christ. These revealed sons are the transformed harvesters who will seek to encourage the next wave of harvesters about to be birthed. The first wave of transformed bridal overcomers will lovingly encourage the next wave of bridal overcomers to stand fast and hold true to the Word of God as they undergo the life-and-death breaking of the waters and the cataclysmic process of change and birth.
A new sound will break out and dramatic presentations of hope-filled Love will mark the Day.
Revelation 12:7-17 And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. The dragon and his angels waged war, 8 and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.
12 For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time. 13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
