Zion is Giving Birth – Part Two Julie Volby May 16, 2004 I submit the following to you with great fear and trembling and at the same time with great joy and hope. I know it is only God who can provide a way to experience all of these things at once. I pray you would carefully consider what is shared. Please test, discern and pray about what the Lord may show you concerning these things. On 04/03/04 the Lord allowed me to release a revelation He was unfolding to me regarding Zion giving birth in one day, the one day being the Third Day or the Third Millennial year that we are now living in since Jesus physically walked the earth. This article was sent out across the internet a week later. I received many confirmations, revelations, dreams, and visions from people all over the world having seen the ‘baby’ or Manchild being birthed. I believe this Manchild as spoken of in Revelation 12 is the Manchild of our destiny in Christ as He is continuing to reveal Himself through a many membered Son or ‘one new man’. I also shared about bringing one’s faith, which is the currency of heaven, into God’s Storehouse or Treasury Room. This brought about a revelation and exhortation to the Joseph Company or Remnant of Overseers to RISE UP and leave the prison of maturity and equipping and to begin to move into their God given destinies in Christ. Please see the first article for supporting Scripture and understanding. Zion Is Giving Birth. Today, I feel another release to share the continued unfolding revelation concerning Zion giving birth. Since the first article was written I have experienced a fair amount of what the Lord showed me was like ‘turbulence’. I was led to study a bit more about turbulence and found the following: Webster’s dictionary definition: Turbulence - the quality or state of being turbulent, wild commotion, irregular atmospheric motion especially when characterized by up-and-down currents, departure in a fluid from a smooth flow. I also found an article that described ‘turbulence’ as ‘air pockets’ described as “irregular air motion that normally cannot be seen and often occurs unexpectedly. It can be created by a number of different conditions, including atmospheric pressures, jet streams, cold or warm fronts or thunderstorms. Turbulence can occur when the sky appears to be clear. Flying in medium air turbulence is like driving a car through a road with lots of pot-holes. Severe air turbulence can cause abrupt changes in aircraft airspeed and even temporary loss of control. Generally, flying through turbulence of the milder nature, if prolonged, can be fairly uncomfortable to the passengers. If such turbulence is detectable by the weather radar or from weather forecast, pilots would avoid them by deviating off track. Flying through severe turbulence can result in injuries to crew and passengers if they are caught unaware and without seatbelts. So, have your seatbelts on whenever you are seated at all times.” - Source: Federal Aviation Administration. I felt the Lord showing me that as we continue to ascend higher and higher in the Spirit, that we would encounter some ‘turbulence’ or ‘air pockets’ that were really just portals into higher realms of His glory. From glory to glory we shall ascend! I believe He is calling us to fasten our seat belts (belts of Truth) and let Him pilot this “flying temple” or mobile Tabernacle of God. We are to remain in our seats or seated with Him in the heavenly places in a position of deep rest and secure trust in Him. I believe we will eventually leave the ‘earth’s’ atmosphere or the limitations of our own flesh (the earth representing the dust we are made of) and be as rockets propelled into ‘outer space’ in which nothing can hold us back, including gravity. I know I am sounding a little ‘spacey’, but please bear with me as I paint this prophetic picture for you. I believe we are not going to have to physically leave the earth to see the glory of God manifested in His Temple (not made with human hands), which is what He is building us together into. This is laid out in the following verses of Scripture. This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. Ephesians 2:21-22 says, “In Him the whole structure is joined (bound, welded) together harmoniously, and it continues to rise (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred to the presence of the Lord]. In Him [and in fellowship with one another] you yourselves also are being built up [into this structure] with the rest, to form a fixed abode (dwelling place) of God in (by, through) the Spirit” (Amplified Bible). Because we are progressively being called into a time of CORPORATE ANOINTING, which is what the Third Day or Feast of Tabernacles (Feast of Ingathering) is all about, I feel led to share the following dream and its interpretation with you. It is burning on my heart as I write and therefore believe that it is a “Kairos” or “NOW” word. On Sunday, 05/09/04, right before going to bed, I was led to pray for all of my friends, family and those that the Lord has been bringing alongside me in ministry. After praying I saw this large cobra in the spirit lifting its head toward me. I remember seeing this cobra type snake when a wave of witchcraft was released against the church a couple years ago. However, this serpent was much larger, especially the head. I saw this serpent as if he were the dragon waiting to devour the Manchild to be birthed out of the woman. The revelation of who this Manchild is was discussed in the first article. Revelation 12:1-2 says, “Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.” It goes on to say in Revelation 12:3-4, “And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.” Upon still seeing this serpent in the spirit, I began to praise and worship the Lord as I fell into a rather restless sleep. I then had this intense dream. Dream of 05/09/04 I was in a closet type room with my two physical brothers. The walls and shelves in the room were painted white. My brother, Joe, had a pet snake in a fish tank sitting on a high shelf in the room. There was actually water in the fish tank also and at least two fish swimming in it. I scooped the two fish out and for some reason decided not to use them and put them back in with the net. One fish was healthy looking and the other looked terribly sick, blackened and diseased. Then I noticed a snail crawling on the inside of the tank and wondered what the snake ate. Suddenly it lashed out its tongue and ate the snail! It kind of jolted me and I told my brothers that we must leave the room. As we exited the room the snake suddenly emerged out of the tank (at least the head did) and his long, thin, tongue lashed out and nearly missed my youngest brother's head. We closed the door behind us as we left. Next we were all sleeping in a single bed just outside the room with the snake. All three of us were uncomfortably scrunched into it. I awoke (in the dream) and realized that this little bed we were in was actually aligned longitudinally along the end of a full size bed. I woke my brothers up and asked if one of them wanted to crawl up into the other bed so there would be more room. I thought Jeff moved up there, but later realized that I was the one who had moved up to the full size bed. Suddenly, somehow I realized what had happened with the snake. I knew that someone had been practicing witchcraft and voodoo and they just needed to take this 'porcelain doll's head’ and touch it to something to activate the spell. No sooner had I realized this, then I knew that they were approaching the front door. I crawled across the full size bed and walked to the front door of the house we were in. I opened the door to find this woman coming up the driveway with the porcelain doll's head to complete the spell. At the same time I saw out of the corner of my eye the angel of death standing in the shadows in the corner behind me. As the woman (witch) approached the door I knew she was planning to finish her spell and I stood there in her way. The fear was so thick I could literally cut it with a knife. I could barely speak and the only words that I could use against her was "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus..." This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. End of Dream. I awoke (for real) saying this to myself over and over and over. I could still sense the fear and see in the spirit the snake in my midst. I just kept saying “Jesus” and then began praising and worshipping the Lord for the victory. Even though I could see the large cobra's head in my midst I thanked the Lord that it was all a lie and that it was actually under my feet. Suddenly I saw a big foot came crashing down upon the serpent's head. It was a really big foot! I know it was the Lord's Foot. I was rejoicing in the victory of the Cross and believing the feet of My Savior have already trampled the father of lies as the Lord prepares and is releasing the Remnant into her destiny in Him. I have since then had a series of dreams almost every night for over a week. I have been given partial interpretation for some of them and continue to wait on the Lord for further revelation. Most of them seem to be related to this particular dream in one way or another. I want to point out that I am usually not much of a ‘dreamer’, but in the past few years have been given more and more dreams, with increasing intensity and depth of meaning. To start with, I sought the Lord for interpretation on a personal level in which I received some understanding in the form of a personal warning, but in my spirit I knew there was more. I asked the Lord to show me the kairos revelation and I believe He answered. I believe that the interpretation is not only personal, but also Corporate. This past week various things have transpired to point me in the direction of the understanding of this dream and some of the others. I cannot get into all of it at this time because it would take too long to explain. So, I will highlight the things that were revealed to me in an attempt to explain how I was led to the interpretation of the dream. As I had seen the gigantic foot of the Lord come down to crush the serpent’s head, I was reminded of a vision my friend Pastor Vincent Xavier had shared with me earlier in the day before having the dream. He had been at a conference that weekend and the Lord had given him a vision of the Lord’s Feet walking in the earth. He said as the Lord walked, the mountains were trembling and the earth was quaking. He said the Lord said He was coming for His own and the earth was His and He was taking it back. He was given Habakkuk 3 for understanding. I then felt the Lord tell me to study His Feet. The following verse seemed to come alive through my own vision of His Foot as the Lord spoke to the serpent: Genesis 3:15, “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.” It is clear that the Seed that God is speaking of in this verse is Jesus Christ and His complete and total victory over Satan on the Cross. All of us have been given access to this same power, yet we do not yet see the full manifestation on the earth as stated in the following Scriptures: Psalm 110:1, “The LORD said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” 1 Corinthians 15:24-25, “Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under his feet.” It is clear to me that if we are the Body of Christ and Jesus is the preeminent Head, then we are to function as HIS FEET through His direction in bringing an end to all rule and all authority and power of the evil one. I have much more to share regarding this, but will have to stop for now to continue with the unfolding interpretation of the dream. I later sat down to read my Bible. As I began reading, I suddenly remembered the name of the witch in my dream had been “Ashtoreth”. I thought it was interesting and recalled hearing that name somewhere in the Bible. After a bit of research I learned that she was an Old Testament Canaanite goddess of love, fertility and lust that the Israelites committed adultery with. They forsook the Lord to serve Baal and Ashtoreth. I noted this and didn't feel led to study any more at that time. Friday morning (04/14/05), after having a series of 3 more dreams I awoke and began to study Scriptures about the Fullness of Christ as He had directed. I turned on my computer and decided to This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. check the online news. The following article caught my eye: http://www.abcnews.go.com/wire/US/ap20040514_120.html Lesbian Rabbi Finally Gets Turn As Bride After Performing Countless Weddings, Lesbian Rabbi Finally Gets Her Own Marriage Rights The Associated Press I was quite surprised that I had not heard anything recently in the news about the gay unions. I also was saddened to see that the Jewish religion was allowing gay unions and Rabbis into the ministry. Please note that I am not highlighting this article because the couple in question happen to be Jewish, but am more concerned right now about the couple being of the same gender. This reminded me of the dream I had the night before the dream containing the snake and Ashtoreth. In the dream two lesbian women at a “Woodstock” type gathering confronted me. I did not know what to make of that dream, but after having the second dream I began to see a connection. Let me also state that I am at a place in my walk with the Lord in which I know the enemy is a defeated foe through Jesus FINISHED WORK on the CROSS. So, studying spiritual warfare type things is something I am no longer drawn to, as the Lord had called me to ‘come up higher’ to the Third Heaven or Third Day perspective. I do believe what Ephesians 1:17-22 says that Christ was raised from the dead and seated in the heavenly places FAR ABOVE all principality and power and might and dominion. So, if we are in Christ as a new creation, then this is also where we are to live and abide positionally in Him. However, with that said, I still felt led to do a little more research on Ashtoreth and found that Astoreth was not only known as the goddess of love, fertility and lust, but also a goddess of war and also believed by some to be known as the ‘queen of heaven’. I found the following definitions on the internet. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance: Hebrew and Chaldee Dictionary: "6252. Ashtarowth ... or Ashtaroth ... the name of a Sidonian diety ... : —Ashtaroth." "6253. Ashtoreth ... the Phoenician goddess of love (and increase): —Ashtoreth." Webster's New World College Dictionary: "Astarte ... a Semitic goddess of fertility and sexual love, worshiped by the Phoenicians and others: see also ASHTORETH, ISHTAR." "Ashtoreth ... the ancient Phoenician and Syrian goddess of love and fertility: identified with ASTARTE." "Ishtar ... see ASHTORETH ... the goddess of love, fertility, and war." Encyclopedia Britannica: "Astarte/Ashtoreth is the Queen of Heaven to whom the Canaanites had burned incense and poured libations." Encyclopedia Britannica: "Through her identification with the Greek Aphrodite and the Roman Venus, Inanna-Ishtar, the queen of heaven, still survives in Roman Catholic iconography - e.g., as the Virgin Mary standing on the moon." I was then led to the following Scripture verses. Judges 2:11-18 11 Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served the Baals; 12 And they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, who had brought them out of the land of Egypt; and they followed other gods from among the gods of the people who were all around them, and they bowed down to them; and they provoked the Lord to anger. 13 They forsook the Lord and served Baal and the Astoreths. 14 And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel. So He delivered them into the hands of plunderers who despoiled them; and He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, so that they could no longer stand before their enemies. This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. 15 Wherever they went out, the hand of the Lord was against them for calamity, as the Lord had said, and as the Lord had sworn to them. And they were greatly distressed. 16 Nevertheless, the Lord raised up judges who delivered them out of the hand of those who plundered them. 17 Yet they would not listen to their judges, but they played the harlot with other gods, and bowed down to them. They turned quickly from the way in which their fathers walked, in obeying the commandments of the Lord; they did not do so. 18 And when the Lord raised up judges for them, the Lord was with the judge and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies, all the days of the judge; for the Lord was moved to pity by their groaning because of those who oppressed them and harassed them. 19 I was very surprised because on 11/21/02 a trusted friend had give me Judges 2:12 along with Judges 2:18. At the time we had no idea what the Lord was referring to when she gave these verses to me. We had not been in much contact in recent months and suddenly this week for some reason we reconnected. This same friend shared that she had just had a strange dream containing lesbians hiding. She had recently been at a church function where she discerned two of the women there were lesbians. She thought perhaps this is what sparked the dream. I thought it was interesting that she would have a dream with similar contents in the same time frame. I was also been reminded of a series of 3 dreams another friend had late last year and earlier this year. At the time I somehow had partial interpretation that it had to do with the homosexual agenda being pushed forward specifically by the females or lesbians. These are not things either of us had been led to intercede about, so it was strange to have it come up. I believe she had these dreams right before the first same sex marriages were performed in San Francisco of which I learned the first couple to be married were female. These unions were later halted by the State of California and not recognized at that level. My friend’s dream also contained 3 snakes (boa constrictors) that were in a bag trying to get out. The same day she had the dream, I found out that a fellow co-worker had passed away. He had taken a leave of absence, so I had not seen him in months. As soon as I heard of his passing, I suddenly somehow 'knew' that he had had AIDS. While he was openly gay, it was not openly known if he had AIDS. It was very sad as I found out how many had tried to minister to him. I felt that perhaps this was confirmation of the interpretation I had for the dreams, though we still await full understanding. I also realized that this was not about some controversial agenda, but was in fact a matter of life and death. Saturday (05/15/04) as I watched the news and another program, it was evident that something major was going on with the gay marriage agenda as I could see the spirit of perversion flooding this Nation. The story I saw on the news was unreal to me. It was about a same sex couple (women) and the children they birthed through artificial insemination with a gay couple (men) and how they were a happy 'family' unit. Then I felt the Lord tell me that on Monday (05/17/04) an even stronger spirit of perversion, lust and homosexuality was going to be unleashed over the United States. I believe this spirit may be the spiritual strongman of Ashtoreth or the Queen of Heaven (see Jeremiah 7:17-18), which I confronted at the door in my dream. I felt the Lord say that the door would open to the full workings of this spirit through the first gay unions that would take place legally in the state of Massachusetts on Monday. I found the following article as well. http://abcnews.go.com/wire/US/ap20040515_1285.html This is just a portion of the article if you click on the link above. May 15, 2004 — For better or for worse, depending on which side of the ideological aisle one chooses, a divided America crosses a historic threshold Monday as state-approved marriages of same-sex couples take place for the first time. I thought it was interesting that this story has not been making the major headlines, nor did I find this topic highlighted on any of the other major news websites. It seems most people are focused on the war in Iraq and all the perversion and violence taking place there. This could be related to my friend's earlier dream as everyone was focused on a roulette wheel with a ball of flesh (perhaps representing This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. the unknown outcome of these ‘war games’). An even deadlier thing lied in wait behind a wall, which I believe this to be. With all of that laid out I now hope to provide the interpretation of the dream to you. Interpretation of Dream from 05/09/04 I believe the fact that my dream contained my two brothers and I was significant. At first I thought it represented my physical brothers, but as I sought the Lord I realized that He was painting a prophetic picture of the Church for me. You see, in the natural I am the oldest of three children. Jeff is the youngest and Joe is in the middle. I believe the significance of this is that the youngest brother represents those believers standing in the Outer Court of God’s Temple. They know Jesus as Savior and have experienced Passover, but have not come into a deeper knowledge of God. I believe the middle brother represents those believers that have entered into the Holy Place of knowing Jesus as both Lord and Savior. They have received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit or Feast of Pentecost and move in the gifts of the Spirit. They also know the ins and outs of spiritual warfare as they battle with the enemy in this soul realm. I believe that since I am the oldest, I represent the believers that have matured into Christ and stand in the Holy of Holies. They have entered behind the veil of the flesh and are experiencing the Feast of Tabernacles in a very tangible way as they commune intimately with the Lord continually. Not only is Jesus their Lord and Savior, but He has become their All in All. I am not saying this is where my brothers are as individuals, but using this as a frame of reference to understand the dream. I believe the three of us together represented the living Temple of God. I believe the closet type room we were in was painted WHITE because of its contents. It reminded me of what Jesus said to the Pharisees in Matthew 23:25-28, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may also be clean. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like WHITE WASHED TOMBS which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” It also reminded me that as Paul stated, “You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons” (1 Corinthians 10:21). The fact that the snake and fish tank belonged to my middle brother was significant as many of those walking in the revelation of the Holy Place or second heaven have continued to keep the enemy as their ‘pet’, as the Church has warred with a defeated foe for over 2000 years. This is not to say this warfare did not have its time or place, but I believe that it is time to ‘come up higher’. The fact that the tank was on a high shelf represented it as something that the Church has set up as an idol or a high place, as many have chosen to feed their pet demons or sins, keeping them hidden in a white washed tomb or closet, rather than repenting and leaving them at the Cross where they were already dealt with by the Blood of Jesus. I believe the two fish that I first took out to use, then put back, were significant as well. Through another dream I received the next night I was able to identify the healthy looking fish as a spirit of religion which would explain why it looked ‘healthy’. The other black, sickly looking fish was a spirit of slothfulness and spiritual apathy, gluttony, drunkenness, hatred and deceit, which inevitably causes lukewarmness. These perhaps have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof. I was also reminded of Proverbs 23 and was given Proverbs 26 by another friend. These Scriptures warn of the consequences of becoming spiritually lazy and overly indulging or feeding on the things of the world and becoming drunk with its pleasures. Proverbs 23:32 explains what happens as a result, “At the last it bites like a serpent, And stings like a viper.” I believe this lines up with my wondering what the snake ate. It was the snail that I saw him eat, the snail representing something ‘sluggish or slow-moving’, not able to escape should the enemy come to devour him. It was after I saw the snake eat the snail that I realized we needed to exit the room taking both of my brothers with me. I believe the snake nearly missed my youngest brother or the immature brethren because they do not stand in much protection against the wiles of the devil standing in the Outer Court, yet they are still spared. We shut the door behind us signifying that the Church is to no longer hide within the veil of white washed religiosity, but instead called to come out of the closet of This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. lukewarmness, thereby shutting the door to all dealings with sin and the devil. Next, I believe that the fact that we were all lying in the same single bed at the foot of the full size bed was also significant, the bed signifying a place of rest. When I awoke I had realized that there was not enough room for all of us. So, I woke my brothers up to try to get one of them to move up HIGHER to the FULL SIZE bed. I believe the full size bed represented the FULLNESS OF CHRIST or a bed of MATURITY and as I ROSE UP and got onto it my EYES WERE SUDDENLY OPENED to see what was really going on in the Spirit. I had moved to the Third Heaven or Third Realm and could see from ‘above’ and accurately discern what was happening. At that moment I knew that the woman, Ashtoreth, was bringing a porcelain doll's head to complete the spell. I believe this may represent the connecting of the head of her authority over her body, which is already operating quite freely in our Nation and perhaps even in many parts of the Church. I passed through the ‘valley of the shadow of death’, when I saw the angel of death in the shadows, as I went to meet Ashtoreth at the door. I believe her ultimate plan is the enemy's attempt to marry himself to the world as a counterfeit version of Christ and His Bride. She is trying to bear her own 'offspring' through it. Her plan was to cause death with a flood of perversion, but God had raised up a standard against her. It was the mature remnant that was this standard. It was also very significant in the way that I (representing the mature ones) stood against her, not by warring, but simply by calling on the Name of Jesus. After I awoke the fear was still thick in the air and I continued to see the Serpent’s head, but upon proclaiming the Truth (standing against the lies) and worshipping and glorifying God for the victory on the Cross, the enemy was clearly defeated as the FOOT OF THE LORD crushed the serpent’s head. Conclusion: I believe that the Lord issued these things for such a time as this to warn the Church and this Nation of what is about to happen. I believe that tomorrow (05/17/05), by the first State recognized same sex marriages taking place, a door is going to open over the United States and a flood of perversion, that has not yet been seen openly, is going to come flooding into the land. Not only into individual households, but also especially into THE CHURCH. It is clear in the Bible that God esteems the covenant of marriage very highly as He even relates His own relationship with Israel in the Old Testament and the Church in the New Testament as a spiritual union of marriage, in which spiritual adultery and perversion, especially of an abominable type, is not met without severe consequences. I believe that this same flood of perversion is the same flood spoken of in Revelation 12. The purpose of this flood is to devour the Manchild of Destiny or Christ in us the hope of glory. I believe the full birth of the Manchild will cause the unraveling of a series of worldwide events that has not yet been seen to this degree as the dragon attempts to stop this from happening. This can be likened to Herod’s attempt to find and kill Jesus when He was first born. I have not addressed the rest of the world in this revelation because the Lord has only shown me things specific to this Nation. However, it is clear that what happens in the United States seems to have a domino effect in the rest of the world in one way or another. I am also not saying that the Remnant resides in the United States only, but believe that there are hidden ones across this earth that have been prepared and equipped for this time in history. I was also reminded this morning of David Wilkerson’s prophetic warning to this Nation that was given decades ago called, “The Vision”. Upon listening again to a taped sermon he gave regarding this, I was surprised at how, for the first time, it became alive to me. I had at one point grown weary of his teachings, but the Lord had directed me to learn from him for a season of time. Though much of what he preaches sounds like ‘fire and brimstone’ I believe that what he was seeing was real. You see, I believe that the Sword of the Spirit is double edged with one side being judgment and the other being mercy. The following verses speak of the duality of God’s righteousness: James 2:13, “For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. Romans 11:22, “Therefore consider the goodness and the severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you will be cut off.” This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. I believe that each individual has a choice and that where we stand with God is a matter of perspective. Many would choose to stand on the side of judgment and choose not to repent and to remain in bondage to their sin. Others would choose to stand on the side of mercy and only see the goodness of God. But my friends, we are coming into a time that we will see both the goodness and severity of God demonstrated across this earth in all its fullness. As the darkness increases, so will the light. We have got to come up higher and have the Lord’s perspective. The judgment that is coming is not to condemn the world, for the full account for sin was already taken upon the Son of Man on the Cross over 2000 years ago. The world does not need to be condemned for as John 3:18 states, “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” I believe the JUDGMENT OR CRISIS that is coming is as Rick Joyner has been talking about as the Final Harvest or a reaping of what has been sown both unto life and unto death. It is indeed time to COME UP HIGHER! The coming flood of lies can only mean that the Manchild of Destiny in Christ is also being birthed into FULLNESS. The good news is that like in my dream, if we call on Jesus and proclaim Him as the Lord and the King over all the earth, worship and praise His Name, and stand firm in the Spirit claiming complete defeat over the enemy, eventually the Lord's Foot of righteousness will bring a final crushing blow to the enemy. I do not yet understand the timeline of how this is going to unfold, but know that the Lord has promised to provide the Daily Bread of His presence for us. Upon sharing all of this with my friend Pastor Vincent last night, he gave me confirmation of the coming flood of perversion and lies that the enemy was planning to flood the earth with as explained in Revelation 12. As we discussed these things we moved into a time of prayer and prophetic declaration calling forth the hidden remnant that the Lord has prepared for such a time as this. We called forth those that were hidden in the spiritual prisons, wildernesses and deserts of preparation and maturity. We were led to call forth not only the Josephs, but the Daniels, the Elijahs, the Joshuas, the Jeremiahs, the Jobs, etc. This holy remnant of people are going to be used mightly in the days to come to light the way. I also believe as we enter into and pass through the next season of PENTECOST we must BE IN ONE ACCORD and seek Him as never before. I believe this season is like no other we have seen on the entire earth. As the season of Passover was taken to another dimension with the release of “The Passion”, displaying Jesus finished work on the Cross across the world, so this season of PENTECOST is going to be taken into another dimension. I believe that those that are in ONE ACCORD seeking Him will be filled with the DUNAMIS POWER FROM ON HIGH, displaying the full manifestation of what this entails including healings, miracles, signs and wonders. I also believe we shall see Joel 2:28-29, “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions” fulfilled as never before. The BEGINNING FULFILLMENT of this prophecy happened in Acts 2, but we shall now see an even GREATER DIMENSION UNTO FULLNESS in this year and in the time to come. As these POWER SURGES of the Holy Spirit infiltrate the Church this will cause a ripple effect that I hope to address in a future article. For now I charge you to seek to enter into this kairos moment in time and SEEK HIM AND HIS KINGDOM FIRST AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. WE MUST STAND WITH ONE ACCORD TO RECEIVE THE FULLNESS OF THE PROMISE IN THIS HOUR. WE WILL NEED HIM AS NEVER BEFORE FOR WHAT IS TO COME. As Jesus said in Luke 10:2, “The harvest is truly great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” We will need to completely rely on GOD’S POWER AND PRESENCE THROUGH HIS SPIRIT to bring in the Harvest. Please do not take these words lightly. It is a time to consecrate yourselves and your Church Body before the Lord God Almighty! PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD! One last thing. Along with the flood of lies, there is another flood coming as well. I leave you with this promise from God’s Word. Isaiah 45:8, "RAIN DOWN you HEAVENS, from ABOVE, And let the SKIES POUR DOWN RIGHTEOUSNESS; Let the EARTH OPEN, let THEM BRING FORTH SALVATION, And let RIGHTEOUSNESS SPRING UP TOGETHER. I, the Lord, have CREATED IT." This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. Pentecost Julie Volby Two Visions May 16, 2004 I just wanted to share what happened today. Upon awaking, the Lord laid it on my heart to write Part Two of "Zion Giving Birth". I wrote for about an hour and a half and then headed to church. During worship I was given 2 very brief, but absolutely incredible visions. In the first vision I saw myself standing up straight and something outpouring over my body that is hard to describe. I didn't really pour out like a rushing flow of water, but was more like a light, transparent, gold toned oil. The incredible part was that as it poured over me, it became this type of embalmment or encasing (like an opaque membrane or cocoon) and as I saw myself standing in it, the membrane was actually made of what looked like lightening, thunder, wind, and water (not that we can 'see' some of these things with the natural eye). It was like I was encased in this electric shock wave membrane. Suddenly, the worship music stopped so they could make an announcement and the vision ended as well, but was still fresh in my spirit. Then the worship continued and this time I saw another vision. It was as if I saw Jesus being baptized, rising up from the River, and as the waters dripped down His Body, the water was so reflective as if composed of millions of little diamonds glistening off His body. There were rainbows as the light from the sun reflected off the water. It was similar to the vision I had just seen on my own body. As worship continued I began clutching my stomach with one hand and the other one raised to Him. I have learned to understand this is a prophetic act of the Lord ministering to, in, with the Manchild within the spiritual womb as He prepares to birth something in the Spirit. As the worship went on, I was led in and out of speaking in tongues, singing and silence for most of the time. The woman next to me thought something was wrong with me, so she prayed for me while we worshipped. After the last song in the set, there seemed to be a miscommunication between the worship leader and the Pastor. The Pastor asked him to play another song and the worship leader did not have one prepared. So, he decided to sing "These are the Day of Elijah". I knew this was of the Lord. The congregation continued in worship and I continued to clutch my stomach in a bent over fashion by now. After the song was finished it was quiet for just a moment and suddenly someone broke out into a prophetic tongue very loudly. This has only happened once since I have been at this church (that time being the very first time the Lord sent me to this church last Fall, which gave me confirmation that I was in the right place). As soon as the tongue went forth I began to weep deeply and the interpretation came immediately. The tongue went on for some time and then the Pastor called for the interpretation. A man immediately began to speak forth part of the interpretation as I continued to weep. I do not remember what he said because the word of the Lord was burning so strongly on my heart. After he finished my weeping became louder as I poured forth what the Lord had laid upon my heart. It was something like, "THE GLORY OF THE LORD FILLS THE EARTH. THE WHOLE EARTH IS FILLED WITH HIS GLORY. I HAVE PREPARED A PEOPLE FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. MY GLORY SHALL BE REVEALED IN MY PEOPLE AND ALL THE EARTH SHALL SEE ME AND BOW DOWN." I don't remember the last part. By then many others were weeping as well. A few others brought forth more interpretation. All I remember is some others speaking forth something like, "THE YEAR OF JUBILEE HAS COME" and "HE COMES RIDING ON A WHITE HORSE". It was so beautiful. God is good. Zion is giving birth! Glory to God! The Pastor later announced that the prayer class group also felt led for those attending the All Church Prayer Meeting this Wednesday to fast. This gave me confirmation of the Lord calling for His people to consecrate themselves as we enter into the season of Pentecost. I then went straight home and wrote for 5 hours straight to complete Part 2 of “Zion Giving Birth”. I believe that my vision had something to do with Pentecost. From the things the Lord has been This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. revealing to many others, and me it is apparent that we are living in the days of the Latter Rain outpouring in fullness. I believe there are coming great tidal waves of His Spirit upon the Church and all flesh. These power surges are going to bring forth the true anointing of God in a fullness that we have never experienced. These power surges, will in turn, trigger an unfolding of worldwide events. I will share more when the Lord releases me to do so. For now, here are some related Scriptures. Habakkuk 2:2-3 2 Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come. It will not tarry. Matthew 3:16-17 16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. 17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Revelation 11:19 19 Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail. Acts 2:16-17 16 But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. 18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. Isaiah 6:3 4 And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is filled with your glory!” Deuteronomy 16:16-17 16 “Three times a year all your males shall appear before the Lord your God in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before the Lord empty-handed. 17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you. Leviticus 23:15-16 15 “And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering: seven Sabbaths shall be completed. 16 Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the Lord. Deuteronomy 16:9-10 9 “You shall count seven weeks for yourself; begin to count the seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the grain. 10 Then you shall keep the Feast of Weeks to the Lord your God with the tribute of a freewill offering from your hand, which you shall give as the Lord your God blesses you. Acts 2:1-4 1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled, with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Haggai 2:6-9 6 “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and dry land; 7 and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. 8 ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts. 9 ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.” Zechariah 10:1 1 Ask the Lord for rain In the time of the latter rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone. James 5:7 7 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Run To Win Julie Volby April 17, 2004 1 Corinthians 9:24 – “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.” There are many of us running this race Paul speaks of. The race of humanity is running the course that was laid out before the foundation of the earth. What we may normally refer to as ‘the rat race’ is nothing more than those who are running to and fro without direction or true purpose. So, I begin this writing with one question for you, “Are you running to win?” This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. I have long wondered about this verse of Scripture. Why would Paul tell us that those who run a race all run? This seems obvious to me. Perhaps the question is do we all know that we are supposed to be running? Paul also exhorts us to run in such a way that we might obtain the prize. The burning question on my heart has been, if only ONE receives the prize, then what is the point of running the race? I found that in my childhood years through adolescence I was, in most cases, numbered with the shortest ones in my class. “Shorty” was a common nickname growing up. While in school, this height challenge followed me as I tried to make the cut in various sports, never being the best player, but still having a measure of fun. At one point, I joined the track team. I soon found that with my short legs, I was never able to run as fast as those with longer legs, especially in the short distance races. I then found that in the long distance races leg length became less important, as focus and endurance took precedence. However, I was not very good at, nor did I enjoy, long distance running. Therefore, I never won first place. So reading Paul’s words about only one receiving the prize left me rather frustrated. I had always wanted to win the race, but knowing that only one obtained it, what was the point of trying? I finally accepted the fact that I was indeed a part of this race Paul speaks of, so I decided that the only way to finish the course was to run. However, I needed to understand that this race was not about a competition with the other runners, but was all about RECEIVING THE PRIZE. As I gazed around at the mass crowds of those running by me, I realized that I could never keep up with their pace. I tried to stay in step with them, but could not. Although I had some training as a child, many old habits, thinking patterns, and experiences held me back. This left me tired and discouraged. Instead of seeing these wise ones, who were gliding by me, as an inspiration, I saw them as prideful and lofty. How could I ever compete with their long, graceful, and enduring strides? Though they had never done anything personally to me, I inwardly decided that they were unbalanced and what they were doing was not for me. So I continued running the race with a small amount of energy and little hope that I would actually finish. It was kind of lonely at first. I did not know how to discipline myself and would run in sporadic and meandering patterns. Over time I realized that there were others like me. They were not quite as swift as the ‘gazelle’ runners, but were running at a pace I could handle. I found comfort in running alongside them as we discussed our relationships with the Lord. As we ran together, I found healing, knowing that I was not alone and that my own self-pity, pride, fear, and unbelief had actually caused me to look at the forerunners in the wrong light or perspective. I realized that perhaps the forerunners did know more than me, as they saw further ahead. I knew I needed to be open to what I could learn from them. As the race continued, I realized as Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:25, “And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.” This race had seemed so long already. However, due to the length of the race, the fruit of the Spirit had been growing, including the temperance and self-control that Paul spoke of. The Word tells us that fruit is grown through patience (see James 5:7). It was during these times of trial and tribulation that I learned to, “Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing” (see James 1:2-4). I had to also realize that those who had gone before me did not have it any easier, but also went through their own tailor made trials of suffering to produce this patience. It became apparent that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful. And that those who endured were counted as blessed. Just like Job, the end intended by the Lord was much better than in Job’s early years. (see James 5:10-11). Job persevered to the end and the Lord blessed his latter days more than his early days with a double portion. It was the LORD who had brought the adversity upon Job to test and purify his heart. This was all done to fulfill God’s purpose in his life (see Job 42:9-12). I realized that there was hope as I studied the lives of so many in the Bible whom God tested with fiery trials, but later restored. This encouraged me as I continued to run by faith in God’s Word. As time passed, my legs became stronger and my faith grew. This race was not so bad after all! Suddenly, before I knew it, my legs were able to run swiftly and with great speed and endurance. I related this spiritual growth spurt to the maturing and physical growth of a child to adolescence thru adulthood. Individuals will grow spiritually, emotionally, and physically at their own set pace. Because my growth in these three areas never seemed to be in alignment as an adolescent, it many times left me confused and hopeless. As I eventually matured into adulthood, it seemed that for the first time This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. things began to come into alignment. But back to the race… As I got accustomed to my new found strength and tenacity, I realized that the pace that I had been running was no longer comfortable for me. It had been a place of such comfort, growth and healing. It had been a season in the race where many hardships and trials were overcome together with others at my side. But there was something inside of me saying I must go on. I must leave the comfort of those I had run with for years and move forward at the rate of growth, which the Lord had destined for me. I must let go of many old habits and ways of doing things that I had come to depend on to survive the intensity and length of the race. This was by no means an easy choice, nor did I fully understand what it meant. As this transition occurred, I found myself misunderstood and often confused as I tried to explain what was happening. It was painful to feel the distance between my co-runners and I grow further and further apart, as my legs began to pick up speed. I wanted to stay where I was because it was comfortable and seemed safe, since I knew what to expect. But the stirring inside of me was too much. I realized that like Paul I needed to, “Forget those things which are behind and reach forward to those things which are ahead. Pressing toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (see Philippians 3:13-14). Here the Greek word for press is ‘dioko’, meaning to pursue, as an extended meaning of pursuing a person on foot in a chase. It seemed that perhaps there was more strategy to winning the race than I thought. If I wanted to take advice from Paul, who was a forerunner (or one who went before), I would need to use the same strategy that he used. He had exhorted us to ‘run in such a way that we would obtain the prize’. It seemed that as Paul ran, he was not running in a random fashion but was, as the Greek word ‘dioko’ suggests, pursuing something or Someone! It seemed I had found the key to running with the same passion that Paul spoke of. I was to run as if I were chasing the One I love! It reminded me of the Shulamite bride’s desire as she sought her bridegroom. We can hear her heart’s desire being poured out in the following verses. Song of Solomon 3:1-3 1 By night on my bed I sought the one I love; I sought him, but I did not find him. 2 “I will rise now,” I said, “And go about the city; In the streets and in the squares I will seek the one I love.” I sought him, but I did not find him. 3 The watchmen who go about the city found me; I said, “Have you seen the one I love?” Oh how chasing my Lord gave me renewed hope and fresh strength. It was as if, for the first time, I could see a glimpse of the Finish Line! I ran with such fervor that I did not notice any obstacles that would have distracted me in the past. It was as Paul wrote, “Therefore I run thus; not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air” (1 Corinthians 9:26). I now ran with much certainty knowing my heart’s desires could all be fulfilled in knowing my Lord even more. But I still had to fight as Paul did. What does this fighting entail? It is obvious, I hope, that Paul did not write this to get us into a fistfight with our brother or sister in order to win the race. Again, our eye or focus must be singular on the Prize or the Purpose, not the Process. So, what did Paul mean when he said this? I had for a long time understood this to mean that when I got involved in spiritual warfare I was not to shoot my prayer arrows in an aimless fashion, but was to make sure I hit my target. This ‘fighting’ brought much success, but in most cases left me exhausted. Now looking back, I think I may have missed the mark all together. It does appear that Paul does intend to fight or contend…but not as one who beats the air. I believe there is much well-meaning spiritual warfare that goes on with nothing but thin air. Please know that I understand that the enemy is real and so are his minions, but according to the Word of God, this prince of the power of the air works in the sons of disobedience, which we are no longer called to number ourselves with. We are to understand that “God, who is rich in mercy, because of HIS GREAT LOVE with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us ALIVE TOGETHER WITH CHRIST (by grace you have been saved), and RAISED US UP TOGETHER, and This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. MADE US SIT TOGETHER in the HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST JESUS (see Ephesians 2:1-6). This place that we are sitting with Him is FAR ABOVE all principality and power and might and dominion (see Ephesians 1:21). I realized that I had spent many years fighting an enemy, that my carnal nature had empowered, by believing the lie that they had any authority over me at all. By God’s grace, I came to know the Truth that set me free. The truth is that Jesus’ Finished Work on the Cross was one of COMPLETE victory over sin, death and the devil. This is FULL SALVATION of the body, soul and spirit! This could not be done by might, nor by power, but only by the Holy Spirit! The only thing Jesus called us to do is BELIEVE IN HIM by faith. The Lord finally revealed the reason that only ONE won the race was because the only way to WIN was to find oneself in ONENESS with Jesus Christ, who is also ONE with the Father. “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us RUN WITH ENDURANCE the RACE that is set before us, LOOKING UNTO JESUS, the AUTHOR and FINISHER OF OUR FAITH, who for the joy that was set before Him ENDURED THE CROSS, despising the shame, and HAS SAT DOWN at the right hand of the throne of God”, Hebrews 12:1-2. From these verses we can truly see that the Author and Finisher of our faith is also the Sole Winner, or SOUL WINNER, who is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is the ONE who paid for our lives with His Blood. He is the ONE who deserved to win the race for humanity! He was the FORERUNNER of all forerunners (see Hebrews 6:20) and we must obtain the PRIZE (a fully restored relationship with the Father) the same way! It is from this position of correct identification of ONENESS with Jesus that we can truly live a victory filled life in Him. Romans 6:8 states this quite clearly, “Now if we DIED with Christ, we believe that we shall also LIVE with Him.” I like the way the Amplified Bible summarizes all of this: 1 Corinthians 9:24-26 Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but [only] one receives the prize? So run [your race] that you may lay hold [of the prize] and make it yours. Now every athlete who goes into training conducts himself temperately and restricts himself in all things. They do it to win a wreath that will soon wither, but we [do it to receive a crown of eternal blessedness] that cannot wither. Therefore I do not run uncertainly (without definite aim). I do not box like one beating the air and striking without an adversary. Now I need to clarify a few things. I had described my experience of transition when I began to pick up speed and leave behind those things that I had been a part of for some time. In this transition, I am in no way advocating an exclusivist mentality, nor church hopping, like a frog. I am simply trying to make the point that there comes a time in one’s life that they must choose to let go of anything that may hinder them from following God wherever He may lead. These things may include old mindsets, attitudes, belief systems and sometimes even the influence of others. This process may actually entail an outward physical separation or may be more inward, where the closeness that was once shared with others is no longer the same as it once was. The same can be reflected in the natural, as we normally do not see 8 year olds relating to 18 year olds on the same level of understanding, nor do I know of too many Kindergartners taking Calculus class. This is not to say that they cannot co-exist together, it just means that their rate of spiritual maturity may be different, thus the relationship may be one of more a mentee/mentor than one of close friends or ministry partners. There are many, myself included, that have mistaken this sudden growth spurt, as our eyes were opened, as a means to pick apart the Church and others. The intent is not to tear down people, but instead to tear down old mindsets, the end product being restoration. It is simply a season of growth ordained by God. Some call it death to self, others call it the cave, the prison, the desert, crucifixion of the self-life, and some a “Patmos” experience. Perhaps we could call it ‘Tomb Time’. Whatever the name, it is designed to squeeze the flesh life out of us in order to come into a deeper, more intimate relationship with our Father. Crossing the Finish Line can only happen by placing our faith in Jesus’ Completed work on the Cross. The Resurrection that results from the death of our old man or carnal nature, through proper identification with His death, will then enable us to more effectively and This version of Total HTML Converter is unregistered. efficiently fulfill our destiny in Him. It is much easier to encourage and train others if we have already passed across the Finish Line ourselves. While many may believe this Finish Line is the end of their life, it is in fact just the beginning of a whole new world filled with God’s light, love, peace and rest. It is the eternal life in the Kingdom that Jesus promised and prepared for us. If I have now obtained the Prize, which is an intimate ONENESS OF RELATIONSHIP with the Father, through the Son, by the Holy Spirit, I must recognize my citizenship is not of this world. I am a “Kingdom Dweller”! This must mean that I definitely need a CROWN! What happened to the crown that was promised to me for obtaining the prize? Recall that in 1 Corinthians 9:25, this crown was described as an imperishable crown. The word imperishable is the Greek word, ‘aphthartos’, which means immortal or lasting forever. An eternal crown for eternal life! That makes sense. However, I had to see that it was not one of those shiny metal imperishable crowns that are worn by the haughty and prideful. It was not one that could be bought with money, nor gained through popularity, charisma, self- ambition or coercion. This imperishable crown, was instead, a CROWN OF THORNS. The Greek word for crown, ‘sephanos’, used in this context means a woven crown, wreath, victory garland; of various shapes and various materials, leaves, twigs, flowers, even metal as a sign of victory, honor and in some contexts authority. I remembered having a vision recently that seemed to illuminate the understanding of this crown. The crown that I saw in the Spirit was a crown of thorns. However, this crown was not only one of thorns, but it was laced with beautiful jewels round about. It was a CROWN OF HUMILITY AND GRACE. It was laced with the living stones that had been hidden deep within the earth, crushed by extreme pressure, and purified by intense heat. These jewels are the Lord’s treasured possession (see Malachi 3:17), reflecting His beauty and His splendor. It is by identifying with the Lord’s humility, that we find true spiritual authority to rule and reign with Him on this earth now and forevermore. The whole race was actually TRAINING FOR REIGNING! With that said, I leave you with these thoughts to ponder: The wise runner will run at his or her own God ordained pace. Their eye or purpose will be single, focused solely on the Lord. They will run with those that the Lord has placed in their path and will allow Him to lead and guide as they trust in Him. They will view adversity as a stepping stone from God, rather than a hindrance from the enemy. Their authority will come from above and not below, though they will reign from a position of lowliness and not be high minded. They will weather the storms of life by faith and through patience they will renew their strength. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. They will learn to fly upon the wings of Love soaring through the air unhindered and in carefree abandonment with their Lord. The turtle and the hare may run the race. It is not important who comes in first, but that they both cross the Finish Line! This is true victory! Hallelujah! IT IS TIME TO RUN!!!! VICTORY IS ASSURED!!!!
