What Heaven is Saying TodayBy Pastor James Durham

My time with the Lord this morning was awesome. While worship music was playing I was soon on my face in submission to Him. After praying in the Spirit for a few minutes, I went into an amazing vision. I was standing in a dark forest of leafless, twisted and gnarly trees. It was night time but the moon was giving enough light to see several feet in every direction. The barren and twisted trees looked like demonic spirits all around. In the vision, I saw a Torah Scroll unrolled over a very long distance along a twisting pathway through the forest. It led up to the door of a very bright and beautiful castle. 

I noticed that I seemed to be standing on the Torah and this did not seem right. As I looked down at my feet, they were not actually touching the Torah. I also noticed that the Torah was not made of paper or parchment. It was made of an amber colored light. As I followed the Torah, I was led through the darkness. At times the path provided an open view of the castle and gave a comforting image of the destination. As the path turned, there were times when I could not see the Castle. I heard the Spirit saying that it is essential that we stay on the path of the Word of God. We must be careful not to turn to the right or to the left. This is the Living Word of God, Yeshua ha Messiach, and we need to be centered in Him in this dark and foreboding time. 

I learned from the Holy Spirit that this is especially important during this week. We must walk, talk and act based on the teachings of Yeshua or we may get caught up in the darkness and deception of the world. There is danger for many in this season, but those who stay centered in the Word of God will be led safely through it all. I suddenly felt a great desire to speak softly all the powerful promises of provision, protection, healing and strength released to us in both the written and Living Word. A passage came to my mind: “And where I go you know, and the way you know.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” (John 14:4-7) 

Are you walking through some darkness today? There are many kinds of darkness trying to surround us today. You may be going through the darkness of pain, loss or disease. You may be in a time of the darkness of doubt trying to cover you. You may be in the darkness because of a painful relationship or personal betrayal by people you thought were on your side. Whatever your darkness may be, lift your eyes and see that the Light of the Lord is breaking through and shattering your darkness. 

Isaiah 60:1-5, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes all around, and see: they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, and your heart shall swell with joy; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.”
