This was another training day in Heaven. Again the Lord taught by first releasing a vision illustrating the lesson. The first vision was of a fight between two women in a church. It quickly became clear that a strong woman was open to the Jezebel spirit and was viciously attacking another woman verbally. Her goal was to marginalize this woman in the church and destroy her influence for the Kingdom of God. She was relentless in her attacks. The other woman was standing strong in the midst of all of this verbal abuse. She seemed to understand that what was happening was a spiritual attack. Others in the church were just standing by and doing nothing. Unfortunately this is often the response of churches in a Jezebel attack.
I was reminded of what Jesus said to the Church of Thyatira in Revelation 2:20-23, “Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.” The essence of the “sexual immorality” in the Bible is idol worship or giving in to demonic spirits. Only those who overcome and keep doing His work will have power over the nations. Then I saw two men wearing white makeup and with eyes made up like Jezebel. This spirit works in men and women and we must cast it out now if we are going to be able to do the work of the Lord in this season. May the Lord give each of you a fresh anointing of the gift of discerning spirits!
The vision changed, and I saw a large group of people being given glasses of milk drawn from a large metal bucket. One person spilled their milk on the floor. Another ran quickly and mopped it up with a cloth and then to my surprise went over to the bucket and squeezed the milk from the floor back into the container with the good milk. This polluted all of it. Then I heard the Lord say, “It is time to quit holding on to the milk of the Word and not progressing to the meat of the Word! When you don’t progress, you make the whole batch unclean!” The Spirit led me to Hebrews 5:12-14, “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” Milk was good when we were babes in Christ (1 Peter 2:2). However, that season has passed and we must move forward now! It is time to become skilled in the use of the Word of God! It is time to recognize that it is the Sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 617). We are currently engaged in mortal spiritual combat, and we need the Sword of the Spirit rather than milk to be able to fight the good fight.
Then the Lord released an anointing of His glory. Something like a laser beam of the Glory of God shot out and penetrated the hearts of each person assembled for training this morning. The power of this blast broke off everything that hinders and set each of us on fire for the Lord and His work in this amazing season of the release of His Glory. Are you ready for it?
As you rest in the Lord during Shabbat, think on these things! Have many “selah” moments of meditation and reflection! Allow the Lord to anoint you with His Glory! Allow Him to take away all those things which have hindered you and release His fire into your heart and into your belly so that you are empowered to accomplish all He has called you to do! Amen!
I suddenly heard in my spirit the words of Jeremiah 5:14, “Therefore thus says the Lord God of hosts: “Because you speak this word, behold, I will make My words in your mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.” Think about it!
