I have been having visitations from the Lord in the middle of the night for many days now. Last night I was taken into an experience where I saw the tangible presence of the Lord come upon individual lives in a way that transformed them and anointed them to do the “greater works.” As His presence rested upon these lives (and even upon corporate bodies), they became a dwelling place for His presence to rest.
Then I saw His very presence increase with a powerful anointing. It was making room in their lives for His Kingdom to come. His presence was literally clearing out things that had no eternal significance or value. I saw things being removed that we’re occupying space in lives. These things were merely being held onto for the sake of familiarity but they had become clutter in their souls and were taking up room that was created for His Kingdom.
It reminded me of a garage full of boxes that held items that were once valued or sentimental but now had become obsolete and burdensome to hold onto. His presence was clearing lives and hearts which was creating room that was now to be occupied by His presence and His Kingdom.
Yesterday I wrote about the Lord interceding through me regarding the “Increase of His Government.” As I saw His Kingdom coming to occupy lives I understood that His Kingdom and His Government are not separate but one and the same.
As I saw His Kingdom and His Government occupy lives, it grew and increased, creating an overflow wherever those who carried it went and upon whatever they touched. Where their feet touched, His presence touched, causing space to be cleared for His Kingdom and Government to occupy.
We need His presence like never before! We must content for a life that nurtures and protects a “presence focused life” because we are the dwelling place and resting place for His presence and His Kingdom on earth. We can ask Holy Spirit to make us a dwelling place (resting place) and to reveal to us anything that is thwarting that or keeping us from becoming “presence occupied.”
“This is what the Lord says, “Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where, then, is a house that you could build for Me? And where will My resting place be?” Isaiah 66:1
I believe that we are being prepared for the greatest outpouring of His presence and His Kingdom coming to earth that mankind has ever seen. When His presence comes, everything changes— the depressed begin to dance for joy, the oppressed break forth in freedom, those who mourn begin to rejoice again and the lost find their way home. Men change, women change, the youth change and even cities and nations change.
He is preparing His bride for this great outpouring. It will come and had already begun in lives and even in corporate “houses.” He’s asking you if you are willing to be prepared? Are you willing to be emptied of what you’ve been holding onto that is occupying space that was destined to receive the manifestation of His Kingdom and His Government— and His presence.
He has assigned angels to help you and to assist you in this time of preparation as you posture your heart to receive a revival of His presence. The anointing that comes as His presence is revealed will break the yoke of oppression your life, your family— over people and over nations.
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” Isaiah 10:27
May your hearts be stirred and your souls be awakened with great expectation for a greater outpouring of His presence than the world has ever known— more than you have ever known.
“Even so come…”
