1 Chronicles 13:6 His throne is between the golden creatures with wings on the Ark of the Covenant. It is called by the Lord’s name.
Two years ago, I encountered a vision from heaven that has brought light to the way that I view the Kingdom of heaven and also how I view the Ark of the Covenant. So as I release this visions over you today, I pray that the Lord will open your eyes to see him more clearly and your ears to hear him more soundly as well for your heart to receive his promises.
I had just been immersed into an environment of worship that continued both day and most of the night, visions were being released all over as there were open heavens. On the fourth day at this Light the Fire Again (LTFA) conference, which was a day of prayer impartation. Evangelist Daniel Kolenda, president of CFAN and a team of pastors were laying hands on the crowds, and walking through lines of people that were ready to receive prayer, breakthrough and freedom! They were strategically praying for one thousand every night of the conference. By God's divine set-up at the end of the night, my husband and I lined up next to many others to receive the prayer. We postured our hearts and prayed in the spirit, praying in tongues and submitting our hearts to all that Jesus wanted to bless our family with. My husband was prayed over first and he was met with so much joy, and a huge increase of God's power flowed through his being. He lay on the floor and I could hear him just communing with the Holy Spirit in such a beautiful way. It was powerful, as they lay hands and prayed for me, I remember just feeling the wind and joy come upon me as I too went back into arms that caught me as I too lay under a cloud of deep blue. It was a smokey blue as if though incense had been burning and my eyes even closed could only make out deep blue, like an ocean.
We both laughed and cried at the same time, as I felt completely consumed with his love. It was almost indescribable, but I am trying my best to bring you to the vision I received. As I lay for a half-hour time seemed unmoved, that soon grew to an hour. I was partaking of so much love, that my whole spirit, body and soul were all in submersion with God's goodness. I could remember what Moses spoke of when he asked God in Exodus 33:18-20 18Then Moses said, “Please show me Your glory.” 19“I will cause all My goodness to pass in front of you,” the LORD replied, “and I will proclaim My name— the LORD— before you. I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” 20But He added, “You cannot see My face, for no one can see Me and live.”
Then I begin to see a vision as if though I was standing and my eyes were gaining focus from all the blue light that had fallen above us. I could hear the voice of my beloved, very clearly as he spoke to my heart and said, look before you, I saw what appeared to be a shoot or smooth ladder that was released from heaven. I could hear my fathers voice as I gained focus on what my eyes were actually looking at, he spoke again and said, "what would you ask of me to give you my daughter?" I immediately came to remembrance of Solomon in 1 Kings 3:5 That night the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream, and God said, “What do you want? Ask, and I will give it to you!” I remember thinking about it before I responded, I was pondering in my heart, should I ask the Lord for wisdom, as that of Solomon, as the Lord was very pleased with him when he sought for a way to govern God's children. Or is there something I should be desiring in reference to the call upon my life to bring many to know him, did I have need for more of his love for others? I thought of how many times I had given consideration to being given that opportunity, but I had not really thought it possible to be standing in such a place. So, I looked up and noticed that the shoot or ladder began to move further away and was rescinding back to heaven. I almost panicked and said Holy Spirit help, I am so sorry, I have missed my opportunity please forgive me, I did not know what to answer. Immediately, I saw a much larger shoot being let down from the heavens, it was about quadruple the size of the first one. Then I felt the spirits joyful prompting and a release came into my heart, my Helper, Sweet Holy Spirit, had come through in a more glorious rescue.
I was prompted to fix my gaze on a faraway vision. I could see a kingdom, it was glimmering in lights, and shone pure as if reflecting God's most precious smile. I felt such a refreshing wind going through me, as I saw the kingdom being brought near. It was a beautiful city, like that in Ezekiel 1, brought from far and nearing the entrance of the ladder. I was thinking of John the Baptist as he cried out in the wilderness about the kingdom being near. Matthew 3:1-3 1In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea 2and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” 3This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah: “A voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for Him.’”(NKJV)
I felt my arms extending upward, as if though my spirit was in partnership with Holy Spirit, reaching upward together in acceptance of this amazing gift. I saw this and I will never forget, the Kingdom was released upon the ladder which was used like a conveyor belt and it was held for a moment by my fathers spiritual arms in front of me, then transferred and transplanted into my heart! Luke 17:21 nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.” (NKJV) It became the greatest gift of God's love to us, that through his son, Jesus, we could now become partakers of this heavenly kingdom. Jesus demonstrated his authority and stood within the Kingdom as he brought others to know the goodness of God. In Luke 11:20 But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. Many did not understand that Jesus came forth to release his fathers Kingdom upon his chosen children, who would chose to live in him. As we begin to live and breath and have our being in Christ, we can begin to experience the realms of Heaven being released in our own lives. Acts 17:28
King David knew that the power of his kingdom rested upon the presence of a good father, who was dwelling/hidden between cherubs of the ark of the covenant. He knew that His kingdom would be as good as his submission and partnership with the Lord! 2 samuel 6:13 “And so it was, when those bearing the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, that he sacrificed oxen and fatted sheep. Then David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was wearing a linen ephod. So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting and with the sound of the trumpet.”(NKJV). The awakening that happens to our whole being as we walk amongst his presence is breathe taking! I too felt like dancing with everything I had, if only I had the ability to feel my arms and legs. I lay unmoved as this whole vision took place in my heart, covered by the tangible weight of his Glory cloud.
I then heard my father's voice speak into my heart, and he gave me a vision of many rooms within his kingdom that he is waiting to reveal to his children. I saw so many rooms being occupied with gifts and with hidden treasures that were hinged upon doors being opened to all that would seek him at this hour. Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. (NKJV) My joy was so full, I came out of that vision with a dose of my fathers new wine. I couldn't stop laughing for the rest of that night, my husband had to pick me up and help lead me out of the sanctuary, as I was so overjoyed. He placed my arm around his and we walked together a few inches, then stopped to give me a chance to regain focus to complete my journey to our vehicle that night. We had been invigorated by life, by wine, and by revelation that was so profound. I almost felt that all this was way passed my level of mind understanding, that I had to release even my mind from the experience and allow my spirit to become the lead in this profound encounter. I believe in my heart that many others that attended this conference were receiving similar visions, as we will begin to hear in the next few years.
The timing of this encounter was perfect, a while after going through this encounter we would step into a ministry school that would help our logic minds to catch up to this spiritual impartation. I came to realize that all of us become partakers of his kingdom upon this earth as we allow Jesus to have our hearts. Our hearts become like the Ark of His covenant or like the womb of Mary, who said yes, to carrying the promised Savior of the world. By allowing Jesus, hope of all Glory, to become seeded at our hearts we were in fact saying yes, to his kingdom becoming a natural realm in our lives. After all, to Him belongs all the power, all the glory and all the splendor of his kingdom. As Jesus chose us, he called us to himself to become partakers of all that is his. Hebrews 3:14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,
What does all this mean, it means that when we invite Jesus to come into our hearts, he comes with everything. He transfers us into a new inheritance that is one with him and his father. He begins to reveal to us, as his brothers and sisters, the heart of God and our inheritance found in him. For we are told in John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. This unfathomable Love, the father has for each one of us, becomes demonstrated in his giving up his beloved son, so that we too could become united to him. When Philip in John 14:8 asked Jesus, to show them the father and that will be enough for them. Jesus responds with the following: John 14:9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? (NKJV). So when we have been with the son, he indeed is revealing the fathers heart and love to us, as they are connecting us to their unity.
I pray that Jesus will allow you to take hold of this vision and impart to you a knowing, and a greater understanding of what it is that you are crying for to have in your heart. Christ in you, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! As the sweet Holy Spirit shows you the beauty of the ark of the covenant and how it was designed to usher the greatest shekinah glory, of God's nature and heart. Shekinah Glory is a visible manifestation of God on earth, whose presence is portrayed through a natural occurrence. The word shekinah is a Hebrew name meaning “dwelling” or “one who dwells.” Shekinah Glory means “He caused to dwell,” referring to the divine presence of God. (Christianity.com)
As you keep asking Jesus to be everything, May it be revealed that Jesus made way for you to now enter boldly into this intimacy and inquire and spend time in his most holy sanctuary, where you are now able to become a host of this wonderful presence! I may not know it all or understand it all yet, but I believe that the day and hour is coming where we wont even need to have so much head knowledge to perceive what the father is getting ready to do! And he is just looking for those whose hearts and hands are clean, by the power of the blood and the washing of the word in our lives. I pray for all of us to step into place, as he gets ready to unlock and open more rooms within his fathers house. May we be able to live from our fathers house, decreeing his word, and living in his heart. May his kingdom be released with all its authority and power over our lives and the lives of those he has come to save. I bless you in Christ our Lord, Jesus. Amen.
