REND THE HEAVENS & COME DOWN
Yesterday I was reading the book of Isaiah 64:1 where the prophet Isaiah cried out to the Lord in desperation “Oh that thou would rend the heavens and come down”. The Passion translation says: God, if only You would tear open the heavenly realm and come down! As I was reading this I heard the Holy Spirit say, I am about to visit My people once again. Their cries have been heard and they are about to experience the “Open heavens” that they’ve longed for. I am releasing My glory across this nation and around the world. Many will begin to experience extraordinary encounters in their personal lives and ministries. Some of you will begin to receive visitations and revelations such as Paul experienced when he said that he didn’t know if he was in his body or out of his body. He said in 2 Corinthians 12:1 “I need to move on and boast about supernatural visions and revelations of the Lord”.
Then the Lord brought me to the story which is in all the gospels when Jesus was water baptized by John. The Passion translation says: The moment Jesus rose up out of the water, He saw the heavenly realm split (tore) open, and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him like a dove. At the same time, a voice spoke from heaven, saying: “You are my Son, my cherished one, and my greatest delight is in you! Everywhere that Jesus went after this time, He experienced an open heaven. He touched and fed multitudes supernaturally, healed the sick and raised the dead. He has given us the same authority, power and anointing to walk and live under an open heaven. That word split (torn) is schizō which is the same word that was used when Jesus died and the temple veil was torn in two.
The Lord is showing me that some of you are looking back to mighty revivals of the past and asking Him to resurrect them, but the Holy Spirit is saying that He is no longer there but He’s coming with something new. When Jesus was raised from the dead, the angel went to the woman at the tomb and said, He’s not here, He is risen. In the same way, we need to seek the risen Jesus who is going to send a fresh revival which may be unfamiliar to us and appear different from the past revivals. He’s raising up a new generation who knows how to touch heaven and create portals to access the heavenly realms. He’s raising up new generals and a new body of believers who the gates of hell will not prevail against. They will overcome and annihilate every evil assault that comes against them.
Many will begin to have angelic encounters as they seek the living Jesus from among the dead. I myself had hundreds of amazing encounters which I share with people often but the Holy Spirit is about to move beyond our analytical thinking and spiritual expectations of the past. It is time to raise your vision higher. Jesus is looking for those who will demonstrate His Kingdom on this earth as it is in heaven with miracles, signs and wonders following. He is calling us to a higher level of fasting and praying and seeking His face in the secret place. This is the place that He will equip and empower us. The secret place is as a greenhouse. It is the environment where you could cultivate plants to grow even out of season and replant them in due season.
Some of the main stream media has been shadow banning and blocking Christian videos and articles and have labeled them as “dangerous content”. They call it offensive because they are speaking about Jesus, the Holy Spirit, revival or salvation. As Holy Spirit filled believers we need to preach, teach and prophesy that which is burning on the inside of us. If we are lukewarm we are not a threat to the enemy. The Lord is showing me that some of you are going to get stirred up in your faith and run with all that the Lord’s put in your heart to do. He will then meet you and ignite the sacrifice that you made for Him. As we rise up and take back the land, the Lord will then rend the heavens and come down. We are about to experience a new move of God that surpasses all others.
Isaiah 64:1 (TPT)
God, if only you would tear open the heavenly realm and come down! How the mountains would tremble in your awesome presence!
Mark 1:9-11 (TPT)
One day, Jesus came from the Galilean village of Nazareth and had John immerse him in the Jordan River. The moment Jesus rose up out of the water, John saw the heavenly realm split open, and the Holy Spirit descended upon him like a dove. At the same time, a voice spoke from heaven, saying: “You are my Son, my cherished one, and my greatest delight is in you!
