Over the last week the word “MAGNIFY” has been so strongly on my heart.
MAGNIFY: make (something) appear larger than it is, especially with a lens or microscope. praise highly; glorify (Google)
Psalm 34:3 has been resounding loudly in my heart:
“O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.” (NASB)
As I have been seeking the Lord regarding this word MAGNIFY and Psalm 34:3 I have felt the Lord is inviting us individually and corporately to intentionally MAGNIFY the Lord and lift up the name of Jesus LOUDLY over everything going on in the earth and in our lives right now.
The Lord spoke to me:
“There is a battle over MAGNIFICATION right now”
I began to see this intense battle over the people of God and over the earth for MAGNIFICATION. We are in the era where the stage is being set for the King of Glory (Psalm 24:7-9) to be revealed like we have never seen before. This is the era of the unveiling of Jesus like we have never seen. This is the era where the Glory of God is going to be revealed over the entire earth.
“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14)
The Lord has been speaking to me for many months about the importance of FOCUS for the Church right now and to not be distracted and to focus upon Jesus and gaze into His eyes. His eyes are like flames of fire and the invitation to encounter Him in deeper ways than we ever have are upon us. The heralding is being released from heaven “Nothing else but Jesus”.
The Lord brought the story to me in Genesis 30:25 and onwards. It is the story of Jacob and the spotted and speckled flock. The Lord brought to my attention the biblical principle that what you focus on, you will produce. The Lord spoke to me that we are in such a significant ‘birthing’ moment in the church that what we MAGNIFY will MANIFEST.
The Lord is wooing and drawing His people into a deeper place of MAGNIFYING Him and focusing upon Him alone, first and foremost. I heard the words “MAGNIFY! MAGNIFY! MAGNIFY! HERE COMES THE MIRACULOUS!!!”
In lifting up and magnifying Jesus, who He is and His name, we are entering into an unprecedented time of demonstration of His miraculous power and the manifestation of the supernatural realm into the natural realm that is like nothing we have EVER seen before.
The Lord was very clear that it is not MAGNIFY THE MIRACULOUS, it was a call to MAGNIFY HIM and MAGNIFY HIS NAME and the MIRACULOUS manifests FROM that place.
We are coming into a time of significant manifestation and the Lord is bringing the Church into alignment in what we magnify. It must be JESUS that is magnified above all else.
DANIEL 2:22, JEREMIAH 33:3
I then had a vision and I saw Jesus and He was inviting the people of God to draw close to Him, and as they were magnifying Him above all else, they were being drawn into a place of deep revelation. I saw Jesus holding a HUGE magnifying glass and He was holding the magnifying glass over the earth. In one moment it would be covering the entire earth and then He would move it around the earth in different places and nations and those places would then be magnified.
The thing that struck me was that He was moving it in such a strategic way, rhythm and pattern. He was moving it in exactly the way it was meant to move. In the Spirit immediately I knew that the Lord was inviting His people who are humbling themselves before the Lord and truly seeking Him and His heart, He was unveiling greater revelation of what He is doing and what He is GOING TO DO in the earth.
I heard the Lord say:
“I am going to show those who are yielded to Me and have eyes to see and ears to hear, INTRICATE DETAILS of what I am doing and going to do”
Those that receive the intricate details of what the Lord is doing and will do are those positioned in humility (Micah 6:8) and dazzled not by their own wisdom.
The atmosphere was SO full of the anticipation of the revelation of the King’s plans in the earth. We are being invited deeper into His heart and His secrets, His ways and His plans for His Kingdom and Government to be established on the earth like never before. RIGHT NOW there is an invitation into Jeremiah 33:3 and Daniel 2:22 at a depth we have never been in before. We don’t claim to see the whole picture (1 Corinthians 13:9) and that keeps us close to Him and in the place of humility and that’s where we must remain and what we must remember. From that place, and the place of deep intimacy with the Lord we are now being invited deeper than we have ever been. the Lord will be releasing revelation and strategy all across the earth The Lord is wanting to reveal INTRICATE DETAILS of what He is doing and going to do because He wants His people partnering with Him in all He is doing in the earth. The Lord is releasing specific DETAILS. I want you to hear this friends. The Lord, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords is releasing SPECIFIC DETAILS of what HE is doing in the earth so we can partner with Him and pray.
What was SO beautiful to me was suddenly in this vision I saw the magnifying glass back over the entire earth and as I looked into the magnifying glass I saw the WORD OF GOD covering the entire earth. I saw it as the Bible, as the Word of God and then where the verses were written out I looked deeper and it looked like a ROAD MAP.
The sense surrounded me SO strongly that the Church NEEDS to be deep in the Word right now. God is releasing unprecedented depths of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of who He is (Ephesians 1:17) and deeper understanding of His ways. (Isaiah 55:8)
I heard Him say “You will SEE and then you will SPEAK!!!!”
The sense also surrounded me the POWER of DECREEING And DECLARING the Word of God across the whole earth. Decreeing the Word of God over the earth. Speaking that which is flowing from His mouth (Matthew 4:4) MAGNIFYING the Word of the Lord over the noise and chaos in the earth. Decreeing the prophetic words and promises over the earth. Releasing His redemption, His strategy, His solutions from the Word over the earth. Speaking truth over the earth. Declaring the GOODNESS of God over nations and the earth. Standing in the gap for nations. (2 Chronicles 7:14) God is calling His people to arise and SPEAK and CHANGE THE NARRATIVE being spoken over the earth in the authority we have in Christ. There’s a summoning upon the people of God to change the narrative of fear over the earth to the narrative of what the KING is speaking. Speaking what HE is speaking right now (Matthew 4:4) decreeing His redemption, love, hope and promises is building in the spirit what we will soon see MANIFESTED. Armies upon armies upon armies of angels are being dispatched from heaven right now on assignment from the Lord based upon the decree of His Word.
SOME OF THE GREATEST DIVINE STRATEGIES FOR PRAYER ARE BEING RELEASED RIGHT NOW
As I continued to look at this magnifying glass and the Word of God like a ROAD MAP, I began to see the Holy Spirit highlighting pathways throughout Scripture revealing a depth of divine strategy in prayer in a depth that hadn’t been walked in. These divine strategies for prayer will also be significant keys for the building of the Kingdom of God in this new era.
These strategies the Lord is releasing is a deep place of intimacy. It is the place of being deep in the heart of the King and is to be a place stewarded with purity and not as a platform to parade what the Lord is saying (Matthew 6:5), some of the things the Lord is revealing is to be kept between you and the Lord and in secret as He entrusts His heart and revelation in greater ways.
As these strategies were being seen, received and implemented I heard Psalm 97:1-9 thundering in the spirit:
“The Lord is king! Let the earth rejoice!Let the farthest coastlands be glad. Dark clouds surround him. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. Fire spreads ahead of him and burns up all his foes. His lightning flashes out across the world. The earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness; every nation sees his glory. Those who worship idols are disgraced— all who brag about their worthless gods for every god must bow to him. Jerusalem[a] has heard and rejoiced, and all the towns of Judah are glad because of your justice, O Lord!For you, O Lord, are supreme over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.” (NLT)
The Lord is releasing deep divine strategy for prayer right now to see the stage set for the King of Glory to be seen, the power of God to manifest and His Glory revealed.
I heard the Lord say “The prayer movement that is being birthed in and across the earth now will be written about in history” – it was a corporate awakening to the power of prayer across the earth unlike anything we had ever seen before.
The invitation is upon the Church right now to partner with Him in the incredible depth of revelation He is releasing for what He is doing and going to do. We are entering a time where we will see the most miraculous answers to prayer we have ever seen.
The Lord is reminding us. “What do you magnify?” Magnify ME and MY NAME upon the earth and watch the earth tremble and shake in preparation for a display of My Glory that’s unprecedented.
The friends of God in this hour will see and hear and discern the new ways He is moving and about to move. We are in a time of decision, to align and be focused. What a glorious invitation to see what He is doing and partner with Him.
