I don't want to give much away here, as I want you to read it for yourself.
Please read on...slowly and carefully. I pray the Lord reveals every stop we should take...on our own destination(s). (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Leave Your baggage on the Platform
"The train is stopping," says the Father. "The train is stopping at the station and some people are getting off and some people are getting on. Some people are bringing luggage and some people are bringing baggage. Get rid of your baggage," says the Father. "Leave your baggage on the platform. Come with hands emptied from previous assignments and open to new opportunities in My Kingdom.
"It's a one way trip," says God. "There is no going back. The way things have been, even people that were fixtures in your life in times past, you are now leaving behind. It's time to take your seat now, no more jockeying for position."
The angels are going up and down the aisle checking tickets. Sadly, I see one person escorted off who thought he had the right ticket and had paid the price, but had not. This person is escorted off the train and left on the platform with their baggage. The train begins to depart.
"Take your seat," I hear the porter say again. There are window seats available and many rush to take them. To some of those in the window seats, I see the angel porters reach across and pull down the shades, saying, "You aren't ready—come with me," and then escort those persons to the dining car. In the dining car there is only one meal on the menu: the Blood and Body of the Lord Jesus Christ. Some look at that menu and frown, for it doesn't offer their favorite meal; but the Father says, "Unless you eat My flesh and drink My Blood, you have no part in Me."
Get Ready—There Are Many Stops along the Way
"Get ready," says the Father. "Things are now getting under way." I see one person open a window and heave out some baggage that they know they shouldn't have brought on the train. There are many stops along the way, and as the train stops at the first destination, many excitedly get off. This station has a sign labeled: "Gift Junction." That's all they want. Just give them the gifts and they will be happy and fulfilled.
The train moves on toward other stops and in time, its ultimate destination. Another stop many disembark at is "Blessing Crossroads." There are those who are happy and content to stop there because they can't imagine anything further down the track for them, other than the blessing of God.
The next stop is a "Political Whistle" stop. Many strong men and women of God get off here, for this is a platform and destination that holds much fascination for them. There are other stops coming up and with many getting off, the seats that were full in the beginning now have many vacancies.
The next stop is "Mantle Station." There are many mantles hanging there on the platform, ready to be picked up: apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher. Amazingly, EVERYONE gets off here and excitedly starts trying on different mantles, admiring and complimenting one another.
The Final Destination
The train starts to pull away, even though it is completely empty, and some look up and realize Mantle Station isn't their stop either. They run as hard as they can and the angel porters lean out of the door to give them a hand—just a few manage to get back on to make it to the final destination. It's the last stop up ahead.
The train comes to halt in a cloud of steam, so much so that it isn't clear what things look like. As the cloud clears up—those few that got back on look...and they see the Cross and Jesus standing by in white raiment. They run to His side and fall at His feet, kissing the nail scars there. This is their final destination! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
