In a closed vision, I saw a battle for as far as the eye could see... through the smoke and defeated men the background was filled with orange and red, the blood and fire rich upon the land. Suddenly, I saw myself laid out on the ground face down in full knights armor ...not hurt so much as worn out. Devastated by the battle I had just waged, but still having a sword in hand. Near me, people of the same disposition riddled and piled over each other to my left.
These people were not dead, just utterly exhausted from the fight.
As soon as I saw my body and the landscape, I was transformed into it.
I looked up from my face down position on the ground. I knew someone was standing there but couldn't see them, with no image before me, I heard a voice "Get up! They will see you." I didn't understand and struggled to realize what the voice meant. I slowly put my left hand with the sword under me and willed myself to push up, but I was slow oh, so slow. I managed to get a knee under me. Looking around, I saw no one was moving. I instantly knew the voice was meant only for me.
NO ONE else heard it!
The others on the ground looked at me like they couldn't believe I still had the energy to get up.
Then I knew... it didn't seem to be a voice anymore, so much as a thought that entered my head.
"If you don't get up, they will die here!"
I knew my body was tired, I knew it didn't want to co-operate with what I was given to understand, but it was so compelling. I had to get up! There the vision stopped. I opened my eyes and knew God was telling me something, but putting it into context was another story.
The whole scenario stuck with me. My heart pondered the reason why I was laying on the ground. In what place in my life would this view of myself apply?
Today, as I praised the Lord to the song above I realized, it was a mountain climbing song. In the melody you can hear the ascension of your climb. As I closed my eyes to feel the full force of what God was saying in and through it. I saw myself. Once again in Knights armor, I was climbing up a mountain.
Alone, but knowing I was heading up the mountain to be with God. As I climbed the dark, slick rock, I suddenly knew there was someone behind me. I was instantly given a view of the whole mountain. There WERE people behind me. As the first came up behind me, they brought two with them, and the next did as well, until all I could see was a pyramid of people that were inline behind me to take the path going up the mountain I had embarked on myself.
I raised my sword and in one cry of unity we all began to climb together. About a third of the way up the mountain the terrain changed, it was green and full of vines. My sword sliced through the vines and began to create a way. Suddenly, I knew these were vines that were deep and thick, but with them carried New Wine. As I stepped into the green lush vineyard, the wine already created began to wrap around and through me like a ribbon. The wine when it had wrapped itself around me began to reach out to the people behind me. It flowed light and easy around the ones that followed. It moved like honey. I saw the first couple of rows of people get wrapped in the New Wine and then I opened my eyes, knowing this wine would not stop there but required that the people ascend up the mountain.
The people needed to reach the vineyard. I needed to push further. I had a quite a bit more to go and it wouldn't be easy but, I knew that I wouldn't be doing this for myself. I had to breakthrough.
I had to find my way to HIM! My way to my beautiful Father. Wherever, I stopped they all would stop.
We are just beginning, family of the most High God! His strength is pulling us on and HE knows no limits, no boundaries where He can take us. We have so much more to obtain in this life with HIM.
Get up! Rise up! Make your way up the mountain! Do NOT let the enemy defeat your purpose on this planet HERE and NOW! There is a generation of HOPE coming and they will ride your coat tails to the Father! What you can do, they can do better! God is shepherding the great manifested sons and daughters we have seen on this earth YET! We must not falter in our endeavor to reach for the Father. His hand is on us! His burden is light and our steps are sure!
DO NOT GIVE UP NOW ... THEY WILL SEE YOU!
This mighty vision was given to me to encourage those who have run their race and are tired from top to bottom. They believe that God could no longer use the valiant in the day of the storm, but that is not what God is saying. He has created His greatest warriors for NOW! The time is NOW!
GET UP Generation of warriors show the redeemed who you are!
GET UP Generation X have a care for who your FATHER is, and who HE represents.
YOUR TIME IS NOW! Raise your sword and persevere like no other generation has...THIS IS YOUR PLACE AND YOUR TIME TO RISE OUT OF THE ASHES AND LEARN WHO YOU HAVE TRULY BEEN CALLED TO BE!
OUR FATHER IS WITH YOU, IN THE CLIMB, IN THE BATTLE. Your journey has been long but it has not been for nothing! Take your sword and make your way up the mountain! He is waiting. He sees your heart and knows your disbelief but, HE also knows what He carried you for till now.
DO NOT BE AFRAID. GOD has brought you this far, He will carry you the rest of the way.
Your dreams are HIS dreams. Your beautiful life a courageous brink of the sign of the times to come.
God knows the creative heart that He has manifested inside you. GET UP! BE VIGILANT. HONORABLE. COURAGEOUS, EVEN IN THE FACE OF TOTAL DARKNESS. His light is coming to wrap himself around an unsuspecting world.
This is my word to you. This is my word to the world.
GET UP! YOUR TIME HAS COME!
It is para mount that you hear me now, for I won't say this much longer.
Have ears to hear and climb to the top of the mountain where you should be as a child of God!
Endeavor to be Free! You cannot lead the wind but you can lead their hearts to the wind.
At the top of the Mountain the winds of the Holy Spirit blow round about and they rejoice as each man, woman, boy and girl find their way through pilgrimage and hardship to this place of rest. He is counting on you to arrive at the meeting place!
Keep your eyes on the Father, He has way more than this planned for all of us!
