As I sat with the Lord recently there has been this deep burning conviction in me that I have been feeling that the Lord is really performing some deep heart surgery on His people right now. Where His people have said YES to Him, the SURRENDERED YES, there is a deep heart surgery taking place and the pruning in many ways is uncomfortable, but it is DRIVING people DEEPER into the secret place. It MUST HAPPEN to prepare the people of God for the PROMOTION that is upon them.
The interesting thing was as I sat with the Lord on this, He was being VERY intentional, that He was LOOKING for the YES AFRESH from His people. The surrendered YES to Jesus, of “I will go wherever you want, do whatever you want Me to do. I am giving you My life afresh.”
As I was resting in His presence, I had a vision. I saw the Lord commanding hosts of angels to come to earth for what He was about to do.
As these angels descended upon the earth I saw them all dressed in what looked like ‘scrubs’, like what you see nurses wearing when you go in for an operation. I saw them preparing operating tables and they were getting everything “ready”.
I then see Him, beautiful Jesus, wonderful Jesus, He walks into this operating theater and He asks these angelic hosts if everything has been prepared and ready. They are all standing at attention and in position and affirm that everything is in place for what He is about to do.
He begins to call for His people. Those that have eyes to see and ears to hear were hearing the sound, the call, the invitation from Jesus to come deeper, into this place of surrender so He could work on their hearts.
I watched as person after person came into this operating theater and lay on the bed. With such love, compassion and comfort, He explained that this heart surgery must take place to prepare them for what they are about to step into. I heard the Lord say to them “The new land is FULL of promotion but it MUST be GROUNDED in PURITY!!!”
I see the scalpel Jesus picks up to use to begin to open up the hearts of His people, but with His left hand I see Him place His hand upon their hearts. Instantly the sense surrounds me that He is releasing anesthetic for the operation. I begin to wonder what the anesthetic is, and He looks at them with a great smile, and He says “The ANESTHETIC and the ANSWER is always LOVE. It is ALWAYS My love. For My love with always comfort you, soothe your pain, and bring you into DEEP rest.”
I am watching all this take place and I find it interesting that this isn’t an anesthetic that puts His people to sleep. They are FULLY AWAKE!!! So in the natural, I keep thinking it’s like a general anesthetic. Jesus then speaks again “In this great AWAKENING, I am performing a great heart surgery that is going to BRING My people into greater calibration with My heart. Deeper intimacy and a deeper heavenly rewiring.”
Jesus places the scalpel upon the chests of His people and I see on the scalpel the Scripture 1 Thessalonians 2:4
“For we speak as messengers approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News. Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our heart.”
I watch as Jesus begins to examine the hearts of His people and He is examining the heart motives of each one. I can feel such incredible love in the room. There is no condemnation, but the heart of a GOOD GOD, digging in deep to remove blockages, hindrances and bring about a deep rewiring.
He turns to the angels and He speaks “I am removing the ROOT of fear of man. I am removing the blockages of PEOPLE PLEASING. In their place I am imparting deeper revelations of My love.” I watched as this deep rewiring of the heart was taking place. I watched as the revelation of love filled the hearts, and dead, dry, black areas of the heart, wounded areas were being suddenly healed. The hearts were beating stronger and looking healthier than they had when Jesus had originally opened them up. As the revelation of His love spread through the hearts I could hear the angels singing “Oh what a delight to live before the Audience of One. Oh what life is found in living simply and deeply before the Audience of One. Oh how the Bride is coming alive in the healing of His love and awakening to first love and the Audience of One.”
I saw some angels in the corner and they were whispering to each other and I could hear them saying “Do you think this really could be the time? Do you think this could be the very moment in time where the greatest awakening of His love upon the earth could take place, as the people of God take their seat with the Lord and take their place? Could it be now?”
Jesus glances over to the angels with a smile and He speaks “The answer is YES!!! From My heart and as My people give Me their YES AFRESH.. the answer is YES!!!”
Once the Lord is done working on the hearts of His people, there isn’t any ‘stitching’ up, there is complete healing. I watch as chests close up by the power of His Spirit, beautiful healing and as they stand up off their beds, the Glory of the Lord is shining from them SO brightly and as His Glory emanates from them and around them, I can see the word “PURITY” everywhere.
I noticed that as they stood up off the beds they were all carrying a “NEW SONG”. This deeper impartation of His love had imparted in them a NEW SOUND. This new sound contained a depth of FEARLESSNESS and BOLDNESS that I had not heard before. This new sound contained a depth of the sound of AWAKENING and LOVE like I had never heard before. This new sound contained a depth of the sound of HOPE and JOY unlike anything I had heard. The sound of PURITY and revelation of His LOVE and INTIMACY was SO fresh. So delicate, so beautiful, so freeing. This sound was SO NEW, I knew it was birthed out of the DEEP YES of the people of God. As these ones stood up and rose up and moved out into all God has for them, not afraid to do what He is asking, even when it’s not what they expected and so completely new, it was preparing the way for even greater, more radical and fresh moves of His Spirit. This new sound was bringing the body of Christ together in DEEP unity. All ages, all generations, those who have gone before us and prepared the way, those who are going ahead and those rising up now. This SOUND was drawing the people of God together, to see them JOIN TOGETHER and flowing in the Spirit with what He is doing. His heart is for His people to all join together in UNITY and go forward into the NEW that He is doing. As this takes place, I saw greater and greater encounters with His Shekinah Glory for His people and released to sweep all across the earth in new and fresh ways.
Where He has removed the “roots”, He has brought healing, He’s brought a grounding in purity, an impartation and awakening to His love and living before Him as the Audience of One.
He hands each one of His people that gave Him their “YES AFRESH”, keys to a new land that they are about to occupy. This land is full of promotion, acceleration and favour, and it is like nothing they have put their hands to before. It’s BIGGER and BETTER.
On each KEY is the Ephesians 3:20:
“To HIM who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than you could ever hope, imagine or dream.”
Not only was He fulfilling dreams, desires and promises but He was leading them deeper into their “cherry on top” season. A land more beautiful, more sweet and with more increase than they could have ever dreamed.
“I am moving My people into a deeper level of PURITY in their STEWARDSHIP of all that I have given them and placed in their hands.”
As the people of God move forward to occupy their new lands, to use the keys He has given them to unlock all He has for them, He speaks again:
“Continue to live deeply before Me. Continue to get your roots deep in Me. Continue to delight and live before Me as your Audience of One. For in this new land there will be new pathways that aren’t popular, their will be new pathways that haven’t been walked before, and it will require you hearing and seeing and obeying what I say, but I assure you, it will lead you to greater life and a move of My Spirit than you have ever known. This new land is grounded in purity and rest. Do not strive, but rest and know that I will take care of the rest as you live deeply before Me in your YES. This land will be filled with grace, a new level of My grace and anointing and this new land will be characterised by My power in a way you have never known before. I am entrusting you with much! You can do this! You have been prepared for such a time as this! Go forth My messengers! Go forth with the Good News of My Gospel and My heart. You will see My Glory, Goodness and Purity flow through you everywhere you go and into the cities and nations. Know that I am with you and you are now being called for. Your lives of purity and humility will continue to attract the favour of My heart. Great fruitfulness will be yours and your testimony will be….”NOT BY MIGHT, NOR BY POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT” says the Lord” (Zechariah 4:6)
