We received quite a few articles lately about those who've been "hidden" in the Lord are about to emerge in great number and great force.
They've been marked by God to bring great shifts in culture and society. If you are one of these hidden ones...your day has come.
Be encouraged to come forth in this hour...God has prepared you for an appointed time! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
The Holy Spirit has been impressing upon me that we are in a season where the concealed ones are coming forth in the power of the Spirit to do mighty exploits. This will cause many to come into the Kingdom as they recognize the King of kings as the one who holds all power! This is not power as the world sees it. It is not force, but it is authority revealing the Lordship of Jesus Christ by the wisdom of God.
The Revealing of the Concealed Ones
The concealed ones – those hidden until the appointed time – are coming forth in this hour. These are the ones who desire to see the Most High God made known; the ones willing to be used to show off His greatness! These are coming forth in His power, to overturn the works of the devourer. The time is now for the great revealing of purpose, aligned fully with Christ "...For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil." (1 John 3:8 KJV)
The Holy Spirit then highlighted examples to me, and Elijah was one. Scripture doesn't tell us anything about Elijah until the day that he is sent to speak to King Ahab. From that point on, we see a life marked with power encounters – a man who heard God and stood on His Word, bringing a showdown with the powers of darkness. Elijah's time before the face of God is apparent because he was willing to step out in faith on the sending of God. He recognized that he served the One true God. God is raising up those with bold faith that comes from knowing God's character, knowing in Whom they trust, speaking only what He says to speak!
"Showdowns in the spirit will occur as the wisdom of God is released in authority. His power will be seen as He is exalted as the all-wise, Most High God!"
Moses also was concealed with God, for 40 years. He ran into the wilderness after trying to make his own destiny happen through the flesh. Those years of wilderness time with God molded his character and honed his hearing so that he could step out in faith and all would see God move in powerful ways. Jesus spent a season in the wilderness. He was was sent into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil, and He overcame, coming forth in the power of the Holy Spirit. God is sending forth those who have been trained in the wilderness and learned to overcome by the Word of God!
The LORD says, "It is time for the overcomers to arise! Prepare your hearts to be ready at a moment's notice, sent out into battle against the powers of darkness. You will be sent forth and with My Word you will fell – souls will be released from the powers of Hell."
I Am Releasing Many from Captivity
I have been hearing that Daniels and Josephs are coming forth out of captivity. Though hidden for a time of preparation, they are being revealed and released into a season of mighty exploits – to display the wisdom and power of God and set other captives free.
Daniel was taken into captivity to Babylon. He is noted three times as one with an excellent spirit and wisdom (Daniel 5:12, 14 and 6:3). His character was exemplary. He refused to partake of the worldly ways of Babylon, eat the king's meat or drink the king's wine. He was not afraid to seek and speak the wisdom of God to the King. He knew his King was the King of kings who holds all power!
Joseph was sold into slavery, falsely accused and captive in prison, yet remained strong in faith and kept his eyes on the vision. As a result, God raised him up to save his people through wisdom and God-given strategies!
Proven Character and Excellent Spirits
The Lord is raising up those who have proven character and excellent spirits. These are those whom He has trained in a season of captivity to hear His voice only, cutting off other sources so that only HE could be found. There has been a revealing of deep revelation and wisdom of the Ancient of Days. These have refused to eat of the world's meat (worldly wisdom) or drink of its wine (intoxicated by worldly pleasures and heady flattering). They have not bowed to the god of fame and fortune. They have not been posturing to political correctness or seeking a name for themselves, but only desiring to serve the living God. "The concealed are being revealed – released from captivity to speak My wisdom and reveal My power as it is released through My word." (Photo via Free Great Picture)
"And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do [exploits]." (Daniel 11:32 KJV)
These are the ones God is raising up: those with excellent spirits and bold faith because they know their God. The tables have turned and the times have shifted. We have entered a new time, a new era.
The Most High God changes the times and seasons. Though the enemy tries to, it is OUR God who does this.
"Daniel answered and said, 'Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are His: And He changeth the times and the seasons: He removeth kings, and setteth up kings: He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: He knoweth what [is] in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with Him.'" (Daniel 2:20-22 KJV)
Those Hidden in Me Will Be Found
I am hearing the Lord say, "Those hidden in ME, who I have kept in the background, who only wanted to know Me and didn't seek honor for themselves, are being brought forward. Hidden gems, formed under pressure in caves of darkness, are now rising. Those who seek Me only, for I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me, they will do mighty exploits as they will be unafraid even to speak to kings when I send them. They will stand on the knowledge of who I AM, and My power will be released through them. The world will see and will declare My greatness.
"Those with the gift of wisdom, the concealed who have been through many trials (the trying of My Word in them) now understand My wisdom and I am raising them up to bring them forth. Their gift will make room for them. My wisdom is needed in this hour; through the wise I will release My power. It is time to see that I AM on the throne and honor will be for ME alone. Those who know Me, know My ways and they recognize I am the Ancient of Days.
"God is raising up those with bold faith that comes from knowing God's character, knowing in Whom they trust, speaking only what He says to speak!"
"You will soon see showdowns in the spirit... confrontations. I am righting the wrongs. My justice will be known, for I am seated on My throne. My concealed ones are rising, for they have seen and known that true justice comes from Me alone. Be faithful to what I AM saying and release it. My WORD will accomplish in a moment of time, for the power released will be MINE!"
"And to make all [men] see what [is] the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the Church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Ephesians 3:9-11 KJV)
These are those who FEAR God. This is not a cowering fear – afraid of being punished or rejected. This fear is reverential awe, recognizing that God is the Most High – Ruler of the nations. Jesus Himself told us to fear God:
"But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into Hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!" (Luke 12:5 NKJV)
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, true knowledge (Ps. 111:10; Prov. 1:7, 2:5, 9:10; 15:33). Wisdom will come forth and the power of God released as a showdown against evil. Be encouraged, those who have been crying day and night: "Father, show the world how GREAT You are, Your power and might – the MOST HIGH, Ruler of all, Maker of all, King of kings." He is going to be revealed in all His greatness!
Let My People Go!
I hear a war cry in the spirit, "LET MY PEOPLE GO!" The wisdom warriors are rising. There is a calling forth of special forces – those trained in secret and kept for such a time as this. These are those not trained in the usual ways (not by others' methods, formulas and programs). They are wisdom warriors who have been trained by God in the school of His Spirit, desiring to know Him and the power of His resurrection. These have overcome much and are being sent forth as agents of deliverance. Showdowns in the spirit will occur as the wisdom of God is released in authority. His power will be seen as He is exalted as the all-wise, Most High God!
In the last month, I have been seeing thrones during worship. I asked the Lord why and He said that it is time to declare that HE IS on the throne, and all power belongs to Him alone. The enemy is a defeated foe, and it is time to put him in his place – under our feet! How? The Holy Spirit repeatedly brings this verse to my spirit: "[A Psalm of David.] The LORD said unto my Lord, sit Thou at My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool. The LORD shall send the rod of Thy strength out of Zion: rule Thou in the midst of Thine enemies." (Ps. 110:1-2 KJV) (Photo via Flickr)
God will make the enemies of Jesus His footstool. How? By sending the rod of His strength out of Zion – the Church (Heb. 12:22-28). We are to rule in the midst of our enemies! How? By declaring the Lordship of Christ in every situation where we see the enemy having reign. By judging as Jesus did. Yes, judging – which means to rule and declare the Kingdom of God! How did Jesus judge? By hearing and saying what God said.
"I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me." (John 5:30 NKJV)
We have been given Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, who speaks what He hears (see Jn. 16:13-14), so that we can judge as Jesus did in every situation where we are sent! The prince of this world (satan) is already judged (see Jn. 16:14). We are to hear by the Spirit and speak the wisdom that God gives and bring His rule! The message (wisdom) of the Cross is the power of God (see 1 Cor. 1:18)! Jesus has already won the war, the enemy is defeated, and we are to rule by the Lordship of Jesus Christ so that the Kingdom can come on earth as it is in Heaven! "For THINE is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, forever. Amen" (Matt. 6:13 KJV)! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
