Revelation is the power of the prophetic to speak the mind of God. The flow of the prophetic ministry in the church has been that of receiving revelation and releasing it as the word of the Lord for His people. Holy Spirit has shifted this flow. We are now entering the Days of Revelation Glory in which revelation not only carries the Word of the Lord, but the Glory of the Lord. A new level of revelation that is not only the Word of the Lord ‘for’ the church, but the Word of the Lord ‘demonstrated’ in the church.
This comes out of what the Lord began speaking to me about regarding the powerful movement in the Kingdom of God in response to the turbulence in the earth and the moving of His Rapid Response Teams into position for the great outpouring of His glory. These are those believers who carry the Presence of the Lord, nurtured and trained in the Secret Place of Intimate Love.
“But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this,” says the Lord of hosts.” (Mal. 4:2-3)
Holy Spirit is working in the lives of those believers who are holding nothing back, but are embracing the fear of the Lord, pressing deeper into the intimate place of God’s Love to worship before Him in spirit and truth. His work is to train and equip them in such a way that they then can be brought forth to release the healing power of His glory.
As I reflected on this, He said that the work He is doing is the work of Acceleration, Elevation, and Revelation. He then gave me three visions. The first two I’ve written about previously and I invite you to read them both as they’re vital for the season we are in. (click here: Part 1-Acceleration, Part 2-Elevation)
The last part of this journey is the work of Revelation.
A Vision of Revelation Glory
The Lord took me to a high plateau. I had a spectacular 365 degree view under a sky that was like a domed canopy. The sky was filled with clouds that shimmered and vibrated with light. As I looked, out of the clouds came shafts of glory of inexpressible colors, sounds and images. The whole atmosphere became charged with colors, sounds and images all whirling and dancing in the rays of glory. I was enveloped in this atmosphere and every particle of energy within me began to resonate, whirling and dancing in the rays of glory. Transfixed in this atmosphere, I watched as the shafts of glory touched the earth, and whatever was touched was instantly transformed.
The Lord said to me, “What you see is Revelation Glory flowing with transforming power. For the days of demonstration are at hand.”
God is Revealing Himself to His People
Revelation is nothing new to the church. It is given to us through the Spirit so that we may know God in an ever deepening way. As Paul wrote the Ephesians:
“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you may know him better.” (Ephesians 1:17).
In other words, God is, through the indwelling Spirit, revealing Himself to His people.
We need revelation to truly know the thoughts and ways of God.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)
You see, revelation operates fully in the spiritual realm forming the pathway into deeper knowing of what God is thinking and doing.
Like I said, revelation is not new to us. What is new is the flow of revelation. It looks like this: Revelation brings Impartation. Impartation brings Activation. Activation leads to Demonstration. We have done a wonderful job of leaning into Holy Spirit to discern the thoughts of God and releasing what we are hearing the Lord say into the church. Prophetic ministry is the prophetic declaration of the mind of God in the power of the Spirit and has carried with it a very real impartation as many take hold of the revelation as the Word of the Lord for their lives. The prophetic life of the church is alive with this flow of revelation. However, this is where we have remained. While we have moved in the flow of revelation bringing the impartation of the Word of the Lord, we have not moved from there into an activation and demonstration.
There is absolutely no condemnation here. It has been the season we have been in. Our journey of faith has brought us from the place of religious thinking about God to the place of revelatory experiences with God, and it is awesome. But, there is more.
In my vision, I was immersed in the atmosphere of the Revelation Glory. The colors, sounds and images in the glory are the thoughts and ways of God being revealed in such a manner that I was being made one with them. I was coming into ‘symphoneo’-I was coming into agreement with the glory. My song, the DNA of who I am, was merging with the Song of the Lord. The closer I got, the stronger the glory resonated. My song and God’s Song became one New Song.
There is a symphony of miracle coming-the creative flow of the Sound of Heaven, God’s Song and our song-together-is the “Glory of the Lord” that fills the earth. The vision showed this release of the New Song carrying the substance of Glory to all creation, bringing the transforming power of healing to everything it touches.
This has tremendous implications for the church. For gone are the days of words without power, preaching without Presence, declarations without demonstration. Now is the demonstration of the Spirit.
Moving Forward into the Place Where What We Hear is What We Do
“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror, for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” (James 1:22-25)
Notice that we are to be “doers of the word”. The word used here is “logos” meaning a word, spoken or written, often with a focus on the content of a communication. It’s significant that this is the very word used for Christ himself. He is is Word of God, the Logos of God.
I emphasize this because of what the Lord spoke to Isaiah about His thoughts and ‘ways’. (see Isaiah 55:8-9) The ways of God are the doings of God, the actions of God. My point is that we are not simply to be people who obey and ‘do’ the written word of Scripture. We are to be ‘doers of Christ’,
Those believers who are yielding to the lordship of Holy Spirit and are leaning into Him to be led (see Romans 8:14) are being positioned by the Spirit through His work of ‘acceleration’ and ‘elevation’ (click here to read Part 1-Acceleration, and Part 2-Elevation) in the atmosphere of an open heaven where they will taste and see the thoughts and ways of God. Living from the place of Revelation they will begin to speak of that which they have experienced, and the prophetic flow of their worship will be accompanied by the demonstration of the Presence and power of God.
The Lord is moving you to a new level of revelation. You are about to taste and see His goodness in ways you have never experienced. The Lord wants you to know His thoughts and ways with increasing power and authority in the Spirit. Dreams, visions, mysteries, ecstatic praise, creative flow is rising within you. He is awakening your song and causing it to resonate with increasing power as He draws you into His Song. Even now, you can feel the surge of spiritual energy, movement of the Spirit taking you higher and deeper into this new realm. This is the place of Revelation Glory the Lord is setting you in. And, you shall release the Sound, you shall release the Revelation Glory and it shall go forth with the demonstration of the Spirit’s power.
