(Part Two to my message on the Glory Train that was given on Sunday)
On Wednesday, I was taken into a vision up into the heavens, and I saw the planet earth below me. It was shrouded in thick swirling darkness. The darkness was heaving and swirling around the planet. As I watched, I saw small lights hitting the shroud here and there. As the lights hit the darkness it would convulse and heave angrily. The lights kept hitting the darkness and the darkness continued to be shaken and I saw places where it began to break up. I saw little openings where the lights had penetrated the darkness and light flowed up into the heavens from its opening. As I watched, I saw bigger lights then begin to hit the darkness that surrounded the planet. When the bigger lights hit the thick darkness, it caused even greater upheaval in that area and the darkness pulled back from its impact like it was in pain. Bigger openings were created as many bigger lights began to join the effort. Eventually huge openings were formed and the darkness convulsed and shook. The whole shroud began to collapse as if it had lost its power to cover the entire earth. It then fled backwards and eventually fled from the planet. I don’t know where it went. I looked back at the planet, and great light flooded the earth.
I asked the Lord, “what was the light that was hitting the dark shroud that covered the entire earth?” He said, “Truth.”
“When the truth gives birth, it will strike the strongholds of the earth. When truth is fully mature, it will destroy all that causes men to fall, and then I shall harvest it all.”
Truth sets men free:
John 8:31 So Jesus said to those Jews who had believed in Him, If you abide in My word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them], you are truly My disciples. 32 And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.
Mark 4:23 If any man has ears to hear, let him be listening and let him perceive and comprehend. 24 And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.
The dark shroud; spiritual darkness: Fear, doubt, and unbelief.
2 Corinthians 4:3 But even if our Gospel (the glad tidings) also be hidden (obscured and covered up with a veil that hinders the knowledge of God), it is hidden [only] to those who are perishing and obscured [only] to those who are spiritually dying and veiled [only] to those who are lost. 4 For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers’ minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God.
The Light that penetrates:
John 6:63 It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life. 64 But [still] some of you fail to believe and trust and have faith. For Jesus knew from the first who did not believe and had no faith and who would betray Him and be false to Him.
Luke 18:7 And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His elect (His chosen ones), who cry to Him day and night? Will He defer them and delay help on their behalf? 8 I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth? 9 He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves and were confident that they were righteous [that they were upright and in right standing with God] and scorned and made nothing of all the rest of men:
Psalms 119:130 The entrance and unfolding of Your words give light; their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple.
Hebrews 1:2 [But] in the last of these days He has spoken to us in [the person of a] Son, Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things, also by and through Whom He created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time [He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order]. 3 He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high,Isaiah 60:1 Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! 2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. 3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
Girding ourselves up against the spiritual darkness:
Proverbs 31:17 She girds herself with strength [spiritual, mental, and physical fitness for her God-given task] and makes her arms strong and firm.18 She tastes and sees that her gain from work [with and for God] is good; her lamp goes not out, but it burns on continually through the night [of trouble, privation, or sorrow, warning away fear, doubt, and distrust].
The Vision of Corporate Prayer:
The second vision: I saw a massive prayer wheel suspended in the heavens, and it was sectioned off much like a pie would be sliced into 24 slices.
I instantly knew that it was a parable and that it represented 24-hour prayer. I also knew that each segment in the wheel was 1 hour. The Lord began to tell me about the significance of the 1-hour sections as also representing the periods of training that we have all been in as we have stood on the watches. I then saw 24 people standing within each section, facing outwards at the widest part of their section. They were standing at their posts on the prayer wall.
Habakkuk 2:1 I will [in my thinking] stand upon my post of observation and station myself on the tower or fortress, and will watch to see what He will say within me and what answer I will make [as His mouthpiece] to the perplexities of my complaint against Him. 2 And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.
The Lord then spoke of the period of our individual trainings in prayer was ending, and the boundaries that we have been comfortable within (the slice of the pie) was also ending. He was now also going to remove the perimeters or walls of our understanding that we were allowed to grow within, and we were now going to have to adjust to a wider view, and move into a greater corporate flow. We cannot remain in our own segmented groups, nor can we remain in our current levels (slices) in prayer, nor can we trust only in our current level of wisdom, experience, and prayer talents. The Lord is going to remove the divisions and the disfunction within the Body of Christ also. The Lord is going to blur the so called boundaries (slices), and remove the sections so that we could all gain a larger prophetic view, so we would then begin to flow more powerfully within the Holy Spirit’s direction in corporate times of prayer.
I then saw all of the slices fade away, and all of the people who were standing within the slices before then reached out and joined hands in a huge massive heavenly circle instead of a segmented wheel. The people then became one in heart, one in mind, and one in voice in powerful prayer. Great explosions of light came out of them all as they spoke forth what the Spirit showed to them all.
James 5:16 Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were assembled was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they continued to speak the Word of God with freedom and boldness and courage. 32 Now the company of believers was of one heart and soul, and not one of them claimed that anything which he possessed was [exclusively] his own, but everything they had was in common and for the use of all. 33 And with great strength and ability and power the apostles delivered their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace (loving-kindness and favor and goodwill) rested richly upon them all.
Again: Luke 18:7 And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His elect (His chosen ones), who cry to Him day and night? Will He defer them and delay help on their behalf? 8 I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth?
The Networks and the Hubs are Forming and Merging:
Then I understood by the vision, that what I was seeing was the beginning of the formation of the greater more powerful lights to come. We have entered into the time of the merging of many streams, networks and hubs, which would be knit together in heart and mind by the orchestration of the Holy Spirit.
They would all become massive beams of light that would hit the darkness through decreeing the “truth” in prayer, and the darkness that has held men’s hearts and minds captive in this generation would be defeated and its power to prevent the harvest would also be defeated.
The time of His greater Light has come!
