ANGELS IN THE LIONS DEN
 

Every one of us are familiar with the story about Daniel in the Lions den. It is not a fictitious story as some may think, but it is an actual encounter that Daniel had experienced as God sent an angel to shut the mouths of the lions.

As I read this scripture, the Holy Spirit began to show me several things. King Darias appointed 120 satraps (princes) to rule throughout the kingdom with three administrators in which one was Daniel. The king wanted to appoint Daniel to rule over the whole kingdom because of his exceptional qualities. The satraps were envious and tried to find grounds for charges against him but they could find no charge or fault, because he was faithful; and there was no error or fault found in him. All the governors of the kingdom, the administrators and satraps, the counselors and advisers wanted to take Daniels life to keep him from a position of authority.

The Lord is showing me that many of you have people who are speaking against you and trying to remove you from your position. They are trying to stop you from what you were called to do. They don't realize that they are coming against Gods plan, but they are determined to plot evil against you. There is a fight for promotion, but as you remain humble and steadfast, the Lord will continue to raise you up to where you belong. Every plan of the enemy will be rendered null and void as you stay faithful and loyal to Jesus and His word because He is guarding you.

The story goes on to say that they convinced King Darius to sign a law saying that for the next thirty days anyone who prayed except for the king would be thrown into the lion's den.  The king was honored and didn't recognize that it was a plot against Daniel, so he made the law and signed it.  Daniel who always prayed three times a day continued to pray even though he knew about this law.

Daniel was then thrown into the lion's den.  The king said to Daniel, "Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you." 
Then a stone was brought and laid on the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the signets of his lords, so that this law could not be reversed.  King Darias couldn't sleep that night because he was so grieved in his conscience.  The next morning he went to the lion's den and called out to Daniel saying: "Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?"  Daniel replied to the king, "O king, live forever!  My God sent His angel and shut the lions' mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you."  Daniel was not angry or bitter towards the king, because He knew God's promises and will for his life.
 
King Darias was amazed and then commanded that the men who had falsely accused Daniel were brought in and thrown into the lions' den, along with their wives and children.  And before they reached the floor of the den, the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.  King Darias then issued a decree that in every part of my kingdom people must fear and reverence the God of Daniel.  King Darias then confessed: "For He is the living God and He endures forever; His kingdom will not be destroyed, His dominion will never end.  He rescues and he saves; He performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth.  He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions.  "So Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian.

As I read these scriptures the Holy Spirit gave me a revelation of this similitude (parable).  Just as a stone was placed over Jesus tomb and God sent an angel to remove the stone, a stone was also placed over the lion's den and the Lord sent an angel to shut the mouth of the lions against Daniel.  You may be facing situations that seem impossible to get out of in the natural, but The Lord will also send an angel to shut the mouths of the lions and you will come out unharmed.

Those who are rising against you will also be grieved in their conscience as they see what the Lord is doing in your life as well as His incredible provisions, and miraculous interventions. Just as the stone was removed and Daniel was set free, He will also set you free from this den of affliction. Jesus is the Lion of Judah and He is releasing you from any pit that the enemy might be trying to hold you in.  As you put your trust in Jesus, you will also experience magnificent encounters in your life.

Daniel 6:17
Then a stone was brought and laid on the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the signets of his lords, that the purpose concerning Daniel might not be changed
  
Daniel 6:25
Then King Darius wrote to all the nations and peoples of every language in all the earth: "May you prosper greatly."  I issue a decree that in every part of my kingdom people must fear and reverence the God of Daniel.  "For he is the living God and he endures forever; His kingdom will not be destroyed, His dominion will never end. He rescues and he saves; He performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth.  He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions."  So Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian
  
Matthew 27:65-66.
Pilate said to them, "You have a guard; go your way, make it as secure as you know how."  So they went and made the tomb secure, sealing the stone and setting the guard

THE LORD IS RELEASING "THE PRISONERS OF WAR"


 
Last night as I was reading the book of psalms I heard the Lord say that He was releasing the P.O.W's. (Prisoners of war). A "prisoner" is someone who has been confined or imprisoned for something that they did illegally or immorally, but on the other hand, a "prisoner of war" or a "captive" is someone who has been wrongfully imprisoned. They may have been imprisoned during or immediately after an armed conflict. The Holy Spirit is about to release those of you who have been wrongfully imprisoned and taken captive by the enemy in spiritual warfare.

In the book of Acts there are two different incidents when God opened the prison doors to release His people who were wrongfully imprisoned. In Acts chapter five, there were many signs and wonders performed through the hands of the apostles. The sick were healed, demons were cast out and people even received healing through Peter's shadow. There was a great revival and multitudes accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The high priest and religious leaders put the apostles in prison, but the angel of the Lord went to them and released them saying: "Go, stand in the temple courts, "and tell the people all about this new life."

In the book of Acts chapter sixteen Paul and Silas were wrongfully cast into prison after they cast a demon out of a lady who was a fortune teller. She continually followed them and mocked them until Paul finally turned around and called the demonic spirit out in the name of Jesus. Her masters were angry because she was delivered and they would now lose their income. They called the magistrates and beat them with rods, shackled them and put them in prison. At midnight as Paul and Silas were praying and worshiping there was a great earthquake, and their shackles were loosed. The jail keeper fell down before them trembling and asked "what must I do to be saved? They replied, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household." The next day the keeper of the prison said to Paul, "The magistrates have said to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace".

The Lord says, I have come to release you from your prison. Allow Me to set you free from the prison of fear that is tormenting your mind, deliver you from the prison of addictions that you have been battling, and set you free from the hidden sins that are distressing you.  Allow Me to break those chains that have held you captive. Allow Me to remove those shackles that have kept you bound. You no longer have to live with the shame and the hidden agendas that you have kept in secret. I am releasing you from the strongholds that have led your life in disarray for so long. I have come to set the captives free. Allow me to release you from the prison of sickness and disease.

Allow me tare down the strongholds in your mind where you have thoughts of confusion that are holding you in bondage. Allow Me to cleanse and restore your way of thinking so that you will no longer have to live with thoughts of revenge, anger and unforgiveness. As you release others, you will be released. Do not harbor bitterness in your heart as this will also keep you imprisoned. Allow Me to release you of every hindrance and every stronghold in your life. I will break every chain that is imprisoning you and the anchors that are keeping you from succeeding. I am opening the prison doors and releasing those of you who have been prisoners of spiritual warfare so that you could receive the abundant life that I have provided for you says the Lord.

John 8:36
Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

Acts 5:18-20
They laid  their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, "Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life."

Acts 16: 23 -26
And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed.

THE "ULTRASOUND" OF HEAVEN
 
 
As I began to fall asleep last night I heard the words "Ultrasound". The Holy Spirit said "I am sending an Ultra-sound" from heaven to shake the nations. I instantly understood that this was not a shaking of war and destruction, it was not a sound of fear or famine, but it is the sound of the voice of God. There is a sound that is reverberating from heaven.
 
This is what the Holy Spirit showed me. There is another wave of "Supernatural" coming to the nations. Just as the waves of the ocean come in and go out in ebbs and flows, there is another "Wave of Glory" on the horizon. It is the sound of His voice. The ebb is the outgoing phase when the tide drains away from the shore; and the flow is the incoming phase when the water Rises Again.
 
Then I looked up the definition of an ultrasound. An ultrasound is a medical imaging procedure which uses a medical device to produce pictures of the inside of the body using "sound waves". It is often used to examine a baby in pregnant women and it is also used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and the body's internal organs, and diagnose heart conditions.
 
Pregnancy is measured in trimesters. The Holy Spirit is hovering over you to detect what trimester you are in. He is searching your heart and observing your thoughts (Jeremiah 17:10) The labor pains are intensifying because you are about to give birth to something in your life. He is not only detecting but also removing pain and disease, and taking away anything that is hindering you from advancing. He is removing your heart of stone and replacing it with a heart of flesh.
 
The Lord says; I am releasing a sound from Heaven as I make My voice known in this hour. My voice releases authority. My voice brings direction. My voice brings instruction. My voice brings transformation. My voice brings healing. My voice brings deliverance and My voice brings correction. I will remove anything that may be hindering you from hearing My voice. I will shake the desert places and I will send a refreshing to the barren areas. I will release My voice to bring an awakening to this nation. I will bring demonstration on this earth as it is in heaven. Know that it is My desire to speak to you and through you as I raise My voice as an "Ultra-Sound" from heaven says the Lord.
 
Psalm 29:3- 9
The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon leap like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning. The voice of the Lord shakes the desert; the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, "Glory!"

Revelation 21:3
And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God

OUR MOUTHS WERE FILLED WITH LAUGHTER, 
OUR TONGUES WITH SONGS OF JOY


Many believers have lost the joy that they once had. They have been burdened down with worries, sickness and fatigue. The Holy Spirit is showing me that He is going to restore joy and release laughter to His people. There is a great time of rejoicing coming to those who have been going through trying times. We have all been held captive to something in our lives, and the enemy is trying to enslave people once again through sickness, financial problems, family issues, fears and addictions. Whatever difficulty you are going through Jesus wants to release you and restore the joy back into your life.

The book of Psalms chapter 126 speaks about how the Israelites rejoiced after their return from the exile and the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion. In the days of Nehemiah, when they came back from Persia at the decree of Ezra, they were rejoicing when they realized that they were able to go back and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. They were so filled with joy that they described it as a dream. The Lord wants to rebuild the things in your life that have been devoured by the adversary.

The Lord says, I am rebuilding those areas that have been destroyed in your life through hard times. I will restore those things that have been lost or stolen. I will remove the heavy burdens and the weights that have weighed you down. Shackles are being broken, and captives are being released. The strongholds that have held you prisoner are coming off. I am releasing the prisoners of war, and returning them home once again. I am healing the brokenhearted and setting the captives free. 

Allow Me to release you from habits that you are not able to overcome on your own, lifestyles that you are not able to change, and renew old mindsets and negative ways of thinking. Allow Me to be Lord over every area of your life. Allow Me to free you from the bondages that are keeping you from walking in freedom. I will break the restraints that are holding you back from all that I have provided for you. Take the limits off Me in what I am able to do. Although you are in a difficult season, victory shall be yours and joy and laughter shall return to you. As you have sown in tears, you shall reap in joy. You will go out with joy and be sent forth with peace. This is the Covenant that I have made with you; says the Lord. 

Psalms 126:1-6 
When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them. The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Jeremiah 29:14 
I will be found by you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile."

Acts 2:28
You have made known to me the paths of life; You will fill me with joy in your presence.
