The Spirit of Interpretation
There have been many quotes on Facebook recently about 2019 being a year of struggle and finally ending or "what was 2019 all about??" It seems that 2019 was a difficult year for almost everyone. People are searching for something to hang onto during their times of suffering! As prophets and those who hear the voice of the Lord, we can speak out words that build bridges and tapestries of hope for others.
What we overcome becomes our ministry! We as forerunners have experienced our suffering early so we can now comfort others with the comfort we have received from the Lord. When we overcome something, we receive a reward according to the book of Revelation. There is a crown that comes with our suffering. When we get to heaven, we don't want to come before the King of Kings without a gift. The elders in heaven cast their crowns at His feet. The crazy part is, we aren't even the ones who actually overcome and get the crowns; it is Christ inside of us! Therefore, we give our gift back to Him that He gave us in the first place.
A few years ago the Lord gave Apostle Lisa a revelation of His Volumes of Glory. One of the volumes was the Book of Suffering. God spoke to her that tears, faith and expectancy are currency in heaven. The Lord keeps our tears in a bottle and writes our sufferings in His book (Psalm 58:6). He showed her that He dips His feather pen into bottles filled with our tears and puts a watermark on a page in His journal. Our tears activate and mark the page.
The Bible says that Jesus was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief and as we suffer with Christ, we will reign with Him. Sometimes, when we are suffering, we interpret what is happening with our own understanding and perception and we can become bitter and angry and miss what is really going on.
We are in a season where we need the spirit of interpretation like never before! We can't process our pain without the spirit of interpretation, nor can we process what the Lord is saying or what those we have a relationship with are saying. Without it we perceive things according to our own interpretation. Perception isn't vision. It's when we see from the inside out from one vantage point. Things are filtered through our cultures, experiences, and belief structures and we can end up believing lies.
And He will delight in the fear of the Lord, And He will not judge by what His eyes see, Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;
~ Isaiah 11:3
We must stop judging what we see with our own eyes and see through the Lampstand of the Lord as Jesus did, the 7 Spirits of God. When we look at things through the 7 Spirits of God, we are seeing by the eyes of faith. As we see through understanding, we realize that God has already given us everything we need, we just didn't see it yet.
Last year we became things as we saw them (becoming like what we behold), but in this season we must hear the Lord so we can speak things forth and they will happen. It is vital that we grow in the Fear of the Lord and ask Him to put a bridle on our mouths so we only speak what the Holy Spirit tells us. Speaking in tongues is an important key to receive revelation and speak only what the Lord is saying. As we speak in tongues, the Holy Spirit broods over our waters and the future is revealed! We encourage you in this next season to speak in tongues and ask God for the spirit of interpretation so that you can walk in truth and the revelation of the Lord in 2020. We pray that God would give you 2020 vision in this new year so you can speak forth what He reveals to you and you can be strengthened and used by God to strengthen others!

IT'S A COMMITMENT:
Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established. ~ Proverbs 16:3 NASB
Definition (KJV dictionary): COMMIT Literally, to send to or upon; to throw, put or lay upon. Hence,to give in trust; to put into the hands or power of another; to entrust; with to. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it. ~ Psalm 37:5 NASB Being established is not an event, it is where you build something and as you build, something is being formed in you. You receive an impartation from the Lord and as others observe, they get the impartation as well. There is an experience, prototype, example, and testimony that lasts forever! You can build a sandcastle but you can't establish it. The Lord is our Lord. Nothing owns us, we are owned by our master, Jesus Christ. He releases power for us to obey Him and overcome what stands in our way. The Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing of which you have spoken; for you have found favor in My sight and I have known you by name.” ~ Exodus 33:17 NASB Before the glory comes the grace. Grace marks us with favor so God sees us and the Lord bestows it upon us. Grace isn't entitlement, it's a gift. Proverbs 16:7 states, "When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him."
