The Cloak of Courage: A Two-fold Promise
July marks the second half of 2019, and as I was asking the Holy Spirit what He was saying for the remainder of this year, I saw a cloak of courage coming down from Heaven like a cloud, resting upon the Body of Christ. I heard the Father speak to my heart, "In the next six months you will see and feel courage rest upon your shoulders like you have never felt before. I am mantling you with a cloak of courage. It is a cloak of royalty and it is the seal of your kingly authority. Where many of My children have been intimidated by the enemy, there is a fresh anointing that you will physically feel upon your shoulders, moving you into a courageous determination to seize your promises."
Many of you have been feeling the contention and war upon your promises this year, and rightly so. The fulfillment of your promises are a direct threat to the enemy. Your promises fulfilled will dismantle the enemy's strongholds across the earth.
I believe, for many people, the battles have been fierce and I can hear the questions, "What about the prophecies for this year? Will I see them fulfilled?" I hear His voice say, "Listen, beloved, I have seen the pressures you have faced, I have walked with you through the fires and I am answering your cries for help. I am releasing this cloak of fresh courage and boldness upon your shoulders that you may charge ahead unafraid and grasp in faith what has been promised you."
I saw this cloak of courage as a two-fold promise... (more)
During a time of recent worship, as I was pressing in for more, suddenly I began to see in the spirit several mantles being released to the earth. I asked the Lord what He was showing me and He said, "I'm releasing new mantles of glory upon My people."
I believe this is a continuation of the Isaiah 60 mandate God is releasing over His people. Isaiah 60:1-2 (TPT) declares, "Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned.... Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you and the brightness of His glory appears over you."
For those who are willing to grab them, there are fresh mantles of glory being released from Heaven. "Fresh" can be defined as not previously known, new, unprocessed, not altered, different, pure. God desires for His people to walk in a new glory they've not known, or that the world has not experienced yet.
Despite what may be taking place upon the earth and in the Church, the glory of God will continue to increase. Habakkuk 2:14 (ESV) declares, "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea... (more)
"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers..." (Malachi 4:5-6)
Much has been written about this verse, and though it's part of a collection of life verses of mine, this writing is less about sharing something new and much more about why and how this passage is a living picture of two wires being reconnected to generate (which is a key word) power into the worldwide awakening many of us are waiting for.
Generate and Generational
Generate and generational – two very similar words in root with two different meanings, yet I believe they come together in Malachi 4:5-6.
To generate power is to create or produce through natural process, while generations or "generational" speaks to multiple generations of ages of people born in different time periods.
I believe we are in a now moment where these two words come together... (more)
