What Heaven is Saying TodayBy Pastor James Durham

This morning the Lord gave me an awesome vision in Heaven. I saw a man dressed in the garments of the High Priest standing in the Temple in Heaven. He was silent and motionless with His hands down by his sides as He intently looked toward something in front of Him. I heard no sounds whatever in the Temple. I reflected on the fact that there is only one man who can wear the attire of the High Priest in Heaven. It is the Son of Man, Yeshua ha Messiach, our High Priest. As I looked at Him this morning, I was reminded that I have recently been given several visions of Heaven in which it is always completely silent. I was reminded of the silence referenced in Isaiah 41:1a, “Keep silence before Me, O coastlands, and let the people renew their strength!” 

As I prayed for wisdom and revelation, the Holy Spirit led me to understand that there is about to be a great shift of seasons in the spiritual realm. This season of judgment is about to transition into the season of “Great Grace” which the Lord revealed to me near the end of last year. We are about to enter into another season like the one released in Acts, Chapter four. Remember the outcome referenced in Acts 4:33, “And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.” This new season will be a time of “great power” and “great grace” upon the obedient followers of Yeshua ha Messiach. Not all will experience the powerful and positive effects of the season. It is conditional upon how we respond to the Lord. 

Remember the disciples’ prayer which opened this season for them. We are now in a season much like they were experiencing. The persecution of believers is gaining momentum in the USA and is increasing around the world. During a time of great persecution, the disciples of Yeshua prayed, “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” Great power and great grace is released to those who are willing to boldly speak the Word of God and proclaim salvation in the name of Jesus. These things are not given to timid and cowardly people. 

The season of great power and great grace is about to open. I thought the Lord was telling me to watch our current calendar, but realized this morning that we need to be on His spiritual calendar – the Hebrew Calendar. The seasons will shift on the eve of Rosh Chodesh Nisan (March 16, 2018). This is the Biblical New Year. The Lord told His people that this was to be the first month for them. It is the first month for us as well. This is the month for the celebration of Pesach (Passover). This is the month when we can celebrate victory over all our spiritual enemies. This is the month to celebrate freedom, release from captivity and preparation to enter the Promised Land. This is our season of great power to boldly proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and to receive great grace in bringing the lost to a saving knowledge of our Lord Yeshua ha Messiach. Think about it! When people want to hear less of the Gospel, they actually need to hear more of it. They desperately need the love, grace and redemption of Jesus. Lord please give us boldness to share your love and grace demonstrated in Jesus’ life and released in power through His death and resurrection. Amen and Amen!!!
