Prayer is a Place of Abiding – Part Two

Preparing the Soil

As God has been speaking to me about areas of my own life, I found myself studying the Parable of the Soils in Luke 8.  The Word I sense the Lord has given me comes from the saturation of a deeper understanding of abiding in Him and preparing my soil to be fertile to receive His heart: 

“There are no more Emmaus Road revelations for My children.  The crucial revelations of this hour are reserved for those whose hearts are hidden in the secret place where I dwell.  For if you choose to dwell in the secret place, you shall abide under My shadow.  It is in this special place that the fertile soil of your heart can receive and protect My Word for this hour.  Living outside of this place allows the evil one to use all of his influence to steal away the seed or choke out its potential.  My former and latter rain is being released to water the soil and ripen the fruit.  The former rain has watered the soil of your heart to prepare you for this hour, but the latter rain is quickly approaching that will ripen the fruit that you are developing.  I beckon you to inhabit my special secret place; for your true authority will be proportionate to the fruit you carry.  Without Me, you can do nothing.  The call to abide is so important for this hour for I have threshing floors overflowing with wheat that must be quickly harvested.  A release of My new wine is awaiting that will crown you with a new level of authority and wisdom for your future tasks.  I have plans to use My special treasure to bring an historic restoration of all things that have been stolen, lost or given away.  I have divinely commanded this to happen, and I will reposition you in the places of My goodness that will attract the downtrodden and the hurting.  You will be the conduit of power flowing from My veins that will declare My purposes and watch its fulfillment right before your eyes.  Can you feel the power, and can you feel the excitement of this new thing I am doing?  It is being released in My secret place. 

Without abiding in Me in this historical time, your vision and purpose will be distorted and choked out.  There is only room for ONE desire in the secret place, and that is a reciprocal release of a harvest covenant.  I will be your only desire, the One that you seek, and I will never allow you to be satisfied with anything less.  It is up to you to decide, but My heart’s cry is to abide and dwell with My bride, and My true bride will long to dwell with Me.  I have longed to prepare My bride as Esther was prepared, washing away all impurities and teaching her how to step in her rightful place.  Do not look at your circumstances as a depiction of your future.  Your circumstances are only designed to upgrade you into your rightful place.  Today I declare that you arise and realize that every test and circumstance that is a Goliath accusation against Me and My Word is a ripe opportunity for your accelerated growth.  Respond to every accusation against My purpose with the revelation that you receive in our secret place.  Speak the Word and stand still and see the salvation of your God.  I will not only deliver you and make an open spectacle of your enemy, but I will also burn off all of your impurities in the process. 

How Do You Abide?
How do you abide in Me?  Enter.  You have been waiting on Me, but beloved, I am in your future waiting one step ahead of you.  I’m a progressive God.  I said, “Come unto Me.”  As you make the decision to enter My presence this day,  I will break up the fallow ground of your emotions and your mind to be able to recognize Me in everything.  I promise I am deeply engrained in every chapter of your life.  I will confound the wise with My plan to use all who enter My chamber.  The Emmaus revelation is no longer powerful enough to bring My vengeance upon the enemy.  It is in our partnership together—our war room in the secret place—that I will reveal the plans that I have for this hour. Everyone has a pivotal role to play, and I will take you step by step from the war room out into the battlefield and display My victory through you.  It will be in the secret place of our abiding together that I will release My scepter in your direction full of power and authority to pronounce judgment upon the enemy.  My signet ring of covenant partnership is awaiting your arrival to the secret place of My chamber.  You are mine; I am waiting, and so is the future of many nations.  I am calling all of the Josephs, the Esthers, the Davids—every ancient anointing to come together as one for some good payback.  No more hesitation—Come, My beloved.  It is time.”

    Thankyou for such wonderful insights coming from the heart of his servants. How encouraging! I thank God for Aglow and for the way God has directed and lead us into more and more understanding of his truth. How he has expanded the vision of Aglow into all the nations. What a privilege to have been a part of Aglow for almost 30 years. Vi Rawlings

    This is an awesome word, and one that is very timely for me right now. I will marinate in it and ask God to highlight things I may be overlooking. I feel it is rich, rich, rich with anointing and revelation! Thank you so much!
