The encounters that I have been having with Jesus in the Garden in my dreams at night and in my times with the Lord, the Lord has been showing me more and more about what He is doing FROM the Garden place of intimacy in this season. There is a significant SHIFT taking place in the Garden of intimacy with Jesus right now, and it is imperative that the people of God are doing everything to be positioned for the tidal wave of “MORE” and “INCREASE” that He is releasing.
THERE HAS BEEN A GREAT PUSH, NOW HERE COMES THE BIRTHING
The Lord showed me that many have been in a place of feeling like they have been in a place of having to “push” through so much. Pushing through opposition, pushing in the contending process, pushing in the promise of what God has said, and pushing in hunger with the cry exploding within them for “MORE”. To walk in greater ways in all that is theirs in Christ.
The Lord showed me that there has been an intense season of “THE PUSH” for many and the “PUSHING” that has continued in 2018 has surprised many – that there is still the place of “PUSHING” taking place.
I heard the Holy Spirit say:
What many of you are carrying and birthing in this season is BIGGER than you realise. What the Lord has deposited in you, what He is beginning to release through you and what He is leading you into, is bigger than you have imagined, and He showed me that many haven’t even begun to “see” the magnitude of what He is doing.
He whispered to me this morning:
“All the pushing and pressing through is about to make sense”
He has been strengthening you, fortifying you and anchoring you in Jesus alone through the pushing. He has and is establishing you in the place of deeper intimacy and the place of “All for Jesus” and “In Jesus alone” before the birthing is completed, takes place. He is removing all things that will hinder you carrying what He is releasing as you partner with Him and invite Him to come and have His way in your heart, soul, character and life.
His fire in the pushing has been removing things that have taken the ‘affection’ of the heart, rather than Jesus. To move in what He is releasing, He is preparing and looking for an army who are founded, anchored and focused upon Jesus Christ alone. The affection of the heart towards Him, and the fire of His love in the “PUSHING” has been overtaking hearts, and other “affections” have been falling to the wayside. The first love encounters are happening all over again, and from the first love place, we move forward into the increase He is releasing.
NEW THINGS OPENING, NEW DOORS OPENING, NEW AVENUES BECOMING VISIBLE, INCREASE, FAVOUR AND NEW PATHWAYS BUT YOU MUST HAVE HIS HEART TO MOVE THROUGH
The Lord showed me that in the “birthing” that is now taking place in the garden with Jesus many new things are opening up, new doors are swinging wide open, new avenues are becoming visible, increase, favour and new pathways – SIGNIFICANT BREAKTHROUGH is taking place in the garden (hence the enemy wanting to keep God’s people OUT of the garden) but He showed me clearly that in order to move into these new things, we MUST have His heart to move through them.
The Lord showed me that MUCH of the birthing taking place in the garden right now is RECEIVING HIS HEART. An impartation of His heart of revelation, vision, secrets and His direction for this new season.
“Don’t move from the Garden until you have my heart”
All these amazing new things will open in great increase from now until the end of the year, but when I heard Him speak to not move from the Garden until you have His heart, it was the sense of a loving warning. That in order to know “WHAT” to move into, “HOW” to move into it, and how to “STEWARD” the journey in these “NEW PLACES” it cannot be done, WITHOUT the impartation of His heart.
The impartation of His heart and revelation that He is releasing is SO significant, SO weighty in this season, it is going to bring TREMENDOUS breakthrough and shift in MANY realms that He moves you into.
For the impartation of His heart, is going to lead many of you in unexpected directions, it will cause you to see things differently, it will see you beginning to intercede and carry the heart of Jesus for people and places you never imagined. The strategy and wisdom of heaven will lead you into places you knew were coming, but also the wisdom of God will surprise you in many ways in this season, by the places He may say no to, but the places He says “no” to, there is a greater door of “YES” and “INCREASE” before you.
DON’T RUSH FORWARD IN THE INCREASE
“Linger in the Garden, go LOW and go SLOW. Don’t rush forward in the increase.”
The Lord showed me the priority is to be lingering in the Garden of intimacy with Him. To “GO LOW” (surrender, yielded, asking for His wisdom and leading, living in humility) and to “GO SLOW” (not to rush into anything but take the time to hear and receive His heart.) I saw Jesus in His wisdom wanting to protect His people from “rushing into things” in this season that may not be where He is leading or running before Him.
For the incredible increase that is being released upon God’s people right now, is SO significant, we are in a season of unprecedented harvest, harvest coming in EVERY direction, and acceleration, there is a temptation to “RUSH FORWARD”, but as we live deeply in the Garden, receiving His heart and hearing what He is saying, we are moving into more and more divine ‘set up’s’ and will see more and more ‘kairos’ moments take place in this season.
The perfect timing of God will be seen as we “GO LOW AND GO SLOW!!!!”
The birthing is taking place. Stay deep in the Garden with Jesus! He’s about to surprise you with the magnitude of what He has been doing in you, through you, leading you into and releasing to you!
