Anyone who has followed my writings has read this statement from me before, but it is worth repeating: “When you come to a threshold, it is then that you want to allow your Bridegroom to carry you over.”
Many years ago I was about to cross over (transition) to a new season of breakthrough, but the warfare I experienced was brutal, robbing me of joy. At that time the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me through a vision.
In the vision I saw a groom carrying his bride over the threshold of the bridal suite. Then I looked at the floor (the actual threshold she was being carried over) and saw snakes, scorpions and demonic beasts below. However, the bride was completely unaware of any danger because she was fully focused on the intimacy and joy of being carried by her groom over this threshold into their new life together.
After receiving the vision I understood that when I come upon a “threshold” in my life, I must allow myself to be carried by my Bridegroom. If I try to cross over by my strength I will face warfare and miss the opportunity to mutually enjoy the beauty of intimacy with Jesus as we enter the “room” of breakthrough.
Feeling Stirred Up
This week I have felt such a stirring in my spirit that it is difficult not to pace the floor and pray all day long. I can sense opposition and resistance, yet at the same time I feel the absolute excitement of breakthrough!
When I feel this, it often is my cue that I must be carried. When we are carried we are taken above circumstance to a higher place and we yield to the strength of the one carrying us. It is time to wrap our arms around the neck of our Bridegroom and yield, allowing love to carry us over.
It’s a Double Portion Breakthrough
I continue to hear that this breakthrough will be a double-portion recompense for everything the enemy has stolen. I hear the word multiplication, and often see the opening of multiple doors with abundance behind them; like the doors of great storehouses.
Many prophetic voices are saying the same thing, “Double for your trouble!” Redemption, restoration and the miraculous awaits your crossover.
Prepared through the Shakings
Though many of you have been shaken, because you have depended upon the strength of your Bridegroom, you will find that the shakings have been used to prepare and adorn you for this time.
I saw a picture of a bride being dressed for her wedding. She had to exercise patience—and perseverance—as her attendants pulled, prodded and twisted her in their efforts to fit her dress, put on her jewels, and fix her hair.
This picture is a description of how God views the shakings and upheavals that have been taking place. You have been being dressed and beautified for your crossover time. You have had to yield to the preparations of being pulled and stretched.
Now Is the Time
You are now prepared and dressed for your breakthrough. All the stress and pressures of the preparation time are being completed and you will experience what you have longed for. The crossover time is now upon you.
Jesus is calling you to joyfully wrap your arms around His neck and allow Him to carry you over. You were created for this time and this place. It is not about you, or even just about Him, but about He and His Bride together.
I see the letters in the word “US” capitalized and I saw the words “Unity Starts”. This is a personal word for you and also a word for the United States (the US). Divisions will turn into unity as the body of Christ in different states begin to crossover together.
The Lion of Judah is roaring over the USA! Us and Aslan together will release a roar that not only brings unity in America but also will usher a prophetic roar over the nations.
The prophetic call upon the United States of America will come forth with clarity like the sound of a shofar being blown. It will release the declarations of God over the nations of the world.
There has been a great preparation for the US to come to this place of receiving her voice back and receiving back her legs to stand upon that are called “liberty and justice”.
It is time! The nations are waiting for the redemptive destiny of this nation to manifest. It is for “us”…for God’s family, His plan, His purposes and His Kingdom to come forth.
For Such a Time as This
This is the Esther moment that God’s people have been prepared for. I hear the words of Esther as she prepared to go before the king: “If I die, then I die.”
We have been prepared to walk in that level of passion, surrender, risk and sacrifice. I see that there is a passion that has caused the body of Christ to not hold back anything but to risk and sacrifice all for the sake of the whole.
There is a cry of passionate conviction that has risen in God’s people that says, “If I die, I die.”
The King awaits our approach. Our beauty captivates Him and His scepter will be extended and our request granted.
This is the kairos moment where we are being called to come before the King. Lou Engle is calling for a three day fast in the US based on this verse and I believe that this fast and this verse from Esther 4:16 marks the crossing of the threshold.
“Go and gather together all the Jews of Susa and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will do the same. And then, though it is against the law, I will go in to see the king. If I must die, I must die.” (Esther 4:16)
The Jewish festival of Purim begins on the evening of March 11th and goes through the evening of March 12th. The jolly festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring). It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day,” as recorded in the Megillah (book of Esther).

This is a time (threshold) into great joy and deliverance. The enemy is defeated. I sense that between now and 4/16 there is a crossing over that will occur. I find it interesting that 4/16 is my husband’s birthday and he is the groom who carried me over the threshold.
This is a key time! Do not be afraid…you were created for such a time as this.
