Last week while talking with my four-year-old grandson about his upcoming birthday, he interrupted me to say,
“Gramma, I want a treasure chest filled with quarters for my birthday!”
It caught my attention because it was such an unusual request from a boy who always wants superhero toys. I have not been able to get it out of my mind since he asked, and whenever that happens I know that the Lord is desiring to show me something.
My family will often, unknowingly, leave me prophetic markers that lead me to the true treasure that that Spirit is desiring to open. This has been the case once again since the new year began.
The first marker came when my son-in-law kept seeing the number 33 everywhere he went (he’s not the type to look for these sort of things so I was sure it was God). I knew that it was Jeremiah 33:3,
“‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’”
It confirmed the word “mysteries revealed” that I kept hearing the Spirit speak. Again and again I’d hear words that have been being like the quarters in that treasure chest. Words like mysteries, wisdom, secrets, treasures, keys, blueprints, face to face, intimacy, and surrender. Every word has been part of the treasure revealed.
Next I became very aware of the numbers 222 (22, 222, 2222) everywhere I went. It was in the name of streets I was directed to go to, addresses, receipts, time on clocks, etc. I have always seen multiple twos as keys (Isaiah 22:22 “The Keys of David”). Then the Lord reminded me of Daniel 2:22 that says,
“He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.”
There it was again…secrets revealed!
I talked with a close friend about this “treasure chest full of quarters”. As we spoke we realized that the Lord was showing me that each quarter represents a “part” of the whole. We all see in part but together, as we get face to face with Him and face to face with one another, we will see the full treasure:
“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” 1 Corinthians 13:12
There is such an open invitation to come face to face with God. In that place we are fully known and in the secret place mysteries are revealed; secrets are shared in the midst of intimacy. As the mysteries are gathered together we begin to see the full treasure the Holy Spirit is revealing.
There is a great treasure hunt going on right now and the clues are all around us, but the wisdom is found in the face-to-face secret place. Out of that place we will come together and release our “part” in order to see the whole. The heavenly blueprints are being released for cities and nations by the great Architect! His sons and daughters are being shown the mysteries (strategies, plans, details) that will unlock the steps to take.
This is a time to get face to face with God and then to gather face to face with one another to bring the different parts together to reveal the whole. It will become times where sons and daughters gather together in a secret garden to receive the counsel of the Lord. Unity, intimacy, and revelation will rest upon these times where His yielded ones gather to seek His face together. Treasure chests will be unlocked and opened to reveal the fullness of His wisdom and counsel.
Your part is important! Don’t underestimate the piece that you carry but offer it. Do not hold onto it for yourself. I believe this is not only about revelation but also about your gift, your talents, and even your finances. Your “quarter”—your part—helps fill the chest.
This is a year of multiplication and that will happen as we join together. In the natural family it takes a man and a woman to multiply (produce children). In the family of God it takes the sons and daughters coming together with the Bridegroom to bring multiplication. There is great anointing upon “face to face” times with our Beloved individually and corporately.
The treasure chest is open…bring your part until it is filled to overflowing!
