This is a word the Lord gave me on a Saturday morning, June 27, 2020, while I was praying on a global watchmen prayer call. I felt the Lord say to release this word for now, and it is my prayer that you are encouraged as you read this.
Vision of the Desert
This is what the Lord showed me in a vision as I prayed that morning for the Body of Christ:
Right in front of me, my room's walls opened up and I saw a vast desert. This open vision was so real, it was as if I was standing in the desert. I saw the full expanse of this desert, and it filled my vision as far as my eyes could see. It was incredibly breathtaking.
Then a deluge of water came out of the left side of the desert so my attention went there. I saw and heard the power of this rushing river over the dry land. This river flowed over the land with such force that the landscape changed completely, from a waste land to an oasis, within minutes. Palm trees appeared where there were none before. The scent of the wet earth of the desert permeated my room. It was exhilarating! The Negev and the Sahara deserts came to mind as I continued to see what was happening before my very eyes.
Then I saw the Lord's mighty right hand come down from Heaven, right in front of me, and He slammed it down onto the flowing waters. The force of His hand coming down was so powerful, it diverted the waters to places in the desert that were not the natural paths they would have flowed in, and new rivers were established.
The Lord impressed upon me that His hand is providing living water in the dry and barren places in our lives that are long overdue. The Lord is making the impossible happen through this.
The Lord showed me that many in the Body of Christ are lacking hope. Tears flowed down my cheeks as more of what the Lord is doing for us now was being revealed to me. I struggled a bit with finding the words to pray, because as I saw the vision unfold before me, the Lord was asking me to pray this vision as a prayer of declaration. (Remember, I was on a prayer call when this vision came to pass.) Let me continue.
"I Am Your Oasis"
I felt the Lord's great compassion upon His people, the people of the earth; His creation. Then I heard the Lord say, "I am the Way Maker in the desert places in the lives of My people. I have heard their cries of repentance; their pleas for Me to help their circumstances. I am creating the way for redemption and supplying the resources for the dreams that I placed in them. What I said over them will come to pass."
The Spirit of the Lord continued to say, "Your deserts shall be no more. I Am your Oasis. You will have abundance, clarity and vision to finish your race. I am the healing waters, coming into your difficult places and relationships, and My life giving waters will flow into your families. I am providing what you need as I complete the work I began in you [Philippians 1:6]. I am enabling you to have understanding and wisdom to navigate the deserts that were to you a barren place and are no more."
In this vision, I saw many run to the flowing river, jumping into the cool waters to escape the heat and dust of the desert. The weariness of the journey ended in this river. I could not count the multitudes being refreshed in the rivers the Lord has provided in this hour. It was an amazing place that looked like an oasis—so beautiful and verdant.
The Scripture I heard was 1 Peter 1:6-9: "In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls."
The Lord is saying to you, "In this river, Bride of Christ, you will take hold of what I provide for you. My Holy Spirit is imparting to you now ALL you need. Immerse yourself in the healing waters I provided for you; your families and key relationships that seemed without hope are being transformed. It may seem like an impasse, but the new path you did not have eyes to see before, you see now. What I said you would do—all I called you for—you will now go and accomplish it." (Photo via Unsplash)
People of God, the Holy Spirit is refreshing us to complete the journey to the Promised Land. This river is breaking through our deserts NOW! We will fully be what we were created to be. It is now for some, and not far off for others. It is a matter of days, weeks and for some, months, so stay the course!
The Lord is saying loudly, "I've opened up what was once shut to you and no one will have what is yours. My righteous ones will prevail. No man can close these doors I opened. It will be evident even in the natural. You will hear about rivers flowing in the deserts in the earth where they have not flowed before, and where they have not been in ages. You will hear that oases are newly established in the earth and know it is I, the God of Israel, creator of Heaven and Earth, who has done it. You will see and hear of these things on the news and know that I am doing great and mighty things upon the earth, both in the natural and the spiritual realm. Some will see these events as disturbing but I am arranging all things for My purpose in these days. You will bring Me My just reward."
Glory to You, Lord, in the highest!
You Will Flourish in Wastelands
I continued to pray about what I was being shown. I saw people groups in nations that have historically struggled to flourish now flourish in wastelands, even wastelands in our modern day cities. Their faith in Christ has made the way. God's people will accomplish His will.
The Holy Spirit continued with these words: "Those that are calling evil good and saying they are Mine, are not of Me, for I am holy." Then I heard this Scripture: Amos 5:24, "But let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream." The Lord is calling out His people to be a godly people. The rivers flowing in these desert places are both in the physical realm of the earth and in the spiritual realm. The Lord is saying, "I am Your justice. Man cannot provide well the justice you seek. You'll find it in Me alone."
Then I saw a glorious picture of a huge campfire in the desert. I saw the people who were immersed in the rivers being warmed by this fire at night. There was a mighty, holy angel with an ancient bellow in his hand, stoking the flames of that fire. I saw the word "FAITH" in the fire. I saw throngs of saints, and then I saw a Bride. And the picture I saw was interchangeable. The Bride was an actual bride, and then it was the multitude of saints in Christ. These are the ones who burn with passion for the Lord, undeterred. The fire was reigniting their faith.
I saw a flame inside the chest of each person that had gathered around the fire the angel of the Lord had made. The flame represented their hearts on fire for the Lord, burning intently with faith. The Lord said that these flames would never go out, even until the end of the age. The Lord likened them to the heroes of faith mentioned in Hebrews 11.
All over the globe, I saw ministries being birthed and ones that were already established in their nascent state, or developed state, being provided for. And some ministries were no longer. I felt the Lord impart to His Body a deep love for one another. I saw empathy replace apathy. I also saw the love of many growing cold and flames of hearts going out across the globe. The Holy Spirit showed me that we must fan the flames of our brothers and sisters with words of encouragement, and encourage ourselves as David did (1 Samuel 30:6).
The race to the end has just started. At the same time, I also saw the love within the Body of Christ glowing as a fire being stoked back to life; even those whose flames went out were lit. The embers were there. The Lord has lit the fire within them again. I felt the Lord's great, overwhelming compassion and could hardly continue to pray with words; I was weeping deeply. The Lord's love is healing the deepest wounds in the Body of Christ right now, and His Holy Spirit is strengthening us to receive it. Thank You, Jesus!
The Lord Is Going to Heal Many Backs and Crush the Spirit of Addiction!
I believe the Lord is going to heal many backbones and backs supernaturally. The spirit of addiction will crushed by the Lord's mighty hand.
In the vision, my eyes then saw multitudes of backbones from behind. I saw backbones afflicted with scoliosis and saw, clearly, backbones fused with metal rods in such a way that helped them function as if straight.
I saw afflictions of back pain upon many people throughout the earth, crying out to the Lord. Then I saw the rivers in the desert again, sweeping across the land, demolishing barriers both in the natural and the spiritual plains upon the earth. As soon as the waters flooded these new places, I saw scoliosis healed; I saw the metal rods fused in backs disappear and new spines in place. I saw sources of chronic back pain leave (they were demonic imps-from different sources of curses). The Lord healed many.
I saw the word "ADDICTION" in large, black letters right before me, and I saw the Lord's right hand come down upon it, crushing the word. I heard the Lord say, "I'm crushing this affliction in My people!"
I then saw many experiencing clarity of thought and hearing the Lord for the first time, clearly. Many were falling to their knees, weeping, with their arms raised to Heaven, thanking the Lord for their deliverance and then getting up and literally running their race that the Lord had set before them. They were like the runners in the Olympics, winning races in the natural and in the spiritual realm, across the globe. (Photo via Unsplash)
He is hearing you, son and daughter. Take hold of your healing now, child of God, in Jesus' name! Spirit of addiction, you are crushed now and destroyed in the Body of Christ by the Dunamis power of Christ Jesus! Yes, Lord! Have Your way in Your people!
Families & Relationships Are Being Restored—Prodigals Are Returning Home!
I saw families gathered and the Lord showed me He is healing families in this season! "The families must be healed!" the Lord said. "I am a God of order. My order is returning to the homes." The Holy Spirit says, "Your children are coming home that were once lost."
At this point, I could not pray for a few moments as I stood in awe of what the Lord was showing me; all I could do was weep and worship in silence.
I saw husbands and fathers knocking on the doors where their wives and children were, even where their adult children lived, because many years had passed since they were abandoned by these fathers. I saw elderly women, middle-aged women and young women answering the doors unexpectedly, seeing their beloveds there. These were men of all ages that had been long gone, falling to their knees, weeping and asking for forgiveness both from their wives and their children. I saw grown children go home that were called "the prodigals."
I saw wives and mothers that were bitter. I saw them wearing a dull, gray-colored, stiff piece of clothing. I saw them praying and repenting of bitter words spoken and unforgiveness. I saw this piece of clothing that was a hindrance to them fall away, and they were able to embrace their children and their husbands. They were dressed in bright and beautiful clothing quickly after this, and many of these women became healed of physical afflictions because their souls were healed.
I saw weddings—lots of weddings. I could no longer speak clearly as I decreed these things that the Lord showed me to pray over the globe in Jesus' name. All I could do was raise my hands high to the Lord and thank Him for what He is doing for us. I was sobbing. For some, this is already happening. The dam of shored up, generational blessings are being released to you.
The last piece of this vision is key for us. I saw a massive, man-made dam. It was filled to the brim, and on the other side it was completely dry. Then the Lord showed me His right hand as it came down onto the center of that dam, and with one swift hit—He broke the dam. The water came crashing down into the valley below. The valley was a desert as well.
The Lord says, "All the generational blessings, which have been shored up and held back in your generation, because they did not fight as you did, are yours. You set your heart to fight for your children and your children's children and so forth – your legacy that you will never know – but they will know Me and I them. Though it has been difficult, it was not for selfish gain. It will be evident in your life that I blessed you."
People of God, once again the Lord has released healing waters to flow. Hallelujah!
This was the last Scripture the Lord showed me as I closed out the prayer: Isaiah 45:2-3, "I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: and I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou may know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel."
And we say, "Yes, Lord! Our hope is being renewed and restored. Let Your Kingdom come and Your will be done here on Earth as it is in Heaven."
Expect the Lord to do all that He said He would do. Be ready, Bride of Christ, the Lord is doing all this and so much more for us! The Lord is doing these great things in this time so the world will know He is Lord above all, even in the midst of the trials upon the earth. Our faith will be like that of the heroes of our faith in Hebrews 11:1-3: "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible."
Be glorified, Lord!
