On August 28th, 2021 I was praying and seeking the Lord on this New Year according to the Jewish Calendar, and was taken into a vision.
I first heard the phrase “Stand Firm”. I then was shown a vision of myself and others standing on a mountain top, our feet firmly spread and planted holding our stance. I felt the ground moving strongly under my feet around me. It felt like mini earthquakes or strong aftershocks, one after the next.
I believe we are in a real season of war right now, where our faith will have multiple times of testing. It will take real courage and boldness, to hold firm and hold onto the promise..BUT HOLD ON …We will indeed!
Ephesians 6:13 says- “Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.”
Can I encourage you to STAND FIRM! Do not quit. Do not back down. Keep Praying. Keep feeding yourself with the Word of God that is your weapon. Keep declaring the promises over your life, and over your children’s lives. Most of all- Keep Believing!
I am praying for those of you that feel weary in this very moment- for that second wind to come of strength from the Lord to continue pressing forward to come. Persevere in faith!
Then in the vision the Holy Spirit instructed me to “Look Up.” I shifted my focus and up above us I could see eagles soaring high in the sky. Those who can see will come soaring with perspective in this season. This is a season where the seers will be released to see and gain Heavenly Perspective that will give us strategy in how to pray.
Then I heard the instruction, “Contend for Peace.” Below us, standing there on the mountain top, I could see a battlefield. I cried out to the Lord, “How has the enemy gained so much ground?” I then heard the voice of the Father – “It’s been the small compromises from the saints. The small ‘Well, I guess that’s okay.’ The murkiness in the thoughts.”
There is a murkiness or confusion being released right now over what is sin. Contend to hold your peace, and to hear His voice clearly. You have a choice especially this year to stand for righteousness and not compromise.
Then I heard another instruction. “This is the year to really invest in your children. Ministries need to turn their attention and focus on the children.”
Then I heard, “This is the Battle before the breakthrough,” and again – “Stand your Ground.”
I then smelt a different smell, like dew breaking forth. I heard, “when all hope seems lost.” Then I Saw Him. There was JESUS in white robes walking right through the thickest part of the battle. There was healing emanating from Him. He came up to the ones that would not be moved.
He said “Access Granted.”
There will be favor on those who stand through this Battle to gain deeper revelations and understanding of Christ Himself .
He then turned to me and said, “Ana I want to take you somewhere important.”
Next I found myself walking in the Garden with Jesus. It was a beautiful garden, which I know to always represent that intimate place with the King. As we walked through it hand and hand, He spoke to me. – “Tend the Garden. Guard your intimate time with Me. Here you will find rest.”
When all else feels like a chaotic swirl of confusion, fiercely fight to guard the secret place of intimacy with Jesus. Turn off the noise, find a way to dial down all the more, and meet with Him heart to heart.
He is the Prince of Peace, Mighty One, and Praise God- HE IS IN CONTROL!
