A few years ago, the prophets began to prophesy that a new era was coming. We said the same thing and God let us know that we did not know what it would be called, because it had not happened yet. Now we know that God is going to pour out His Glory and it will revolutionize the body of Christ and the world. Is. 55:5 says God will cover us with His splendor.
“Behold, you will call a nation you do not know, And a nation which knows you not will run to you, Because of the Lord your God, even the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you.” (Isaiah 55:5)
One translation says “splendor”; splendor is to shine, to be brilliant or to radiate. This brightness of His Glory that is coming on us will draw the nations into the kingdom. When the Queen of Sheba heard about the glory of King Solomon, she came to see for herself (1 Kings 10:1).
This Glory will also be a covering and a weapon. Isaiah tells about the glory that will be a tent and a covering.
“When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the bloodshed of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and the spirit of burning, then the Lord will create over the whole area of Mount Zion and over her assemblies a cloud by day, even smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy. There will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain. ( Is 4:4-6)
He mentions the Spirit of burning that will return the fear of the Lord and conviction drawing many into purity and conversion. As we worship according to Psalms 149:6, David says the high praises will bind up territorial spirits and create a shield and bulwark. God inhabits the praises of His people and when He comes we will experience His Glory as a covering shield, and He will war for us.
“Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand,To execute vengeance on the nations And punishment on the peoples,To bind their kings with chains And their nobles with fetters of iron” (Ps 149:6)
“From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength (bulwark) Because of Your adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease.” (Psalm 8:2)
When God shows up, everything He is shows up with Him. In the Glory, His Presence drives our ministry. He heals, reveals, saves, and sets free. Many will transform as they experience His real, tangible Presence in this era. Evangelism will shift and become more prevalent because people will see the Glory and feel God’s love and presence like never before. Because it is time of God revealing His Glory, the color of gold (symbolizing the divine and provision) and emerald green (symbolizing life and resurrection power) will be in vogue in the kingdom.
FUNDING THOSE WHO CARE ABOUT THE FISH
While I was in Israel the Lord spoke to me that He was “creating new prototypes.” He shared with me that He was “going to fund those who care about the fish.” God is very concerned about His children. He explained to me that “the money is, in fact, in the fishes’ mouth.” Many are going to find that in this season God is de-funding their ministries because they are not lined up with God’s heart for the Harvest.
