11/04/07 ANGEL OF DELIVERANCE

VISION:
I was nestled in the crevice of a very tall, narrow pinnacle rock overlooking a river. I bent over a couple inches and looked straight down, to see if there was a way down and I gulped. No way! So I turned around and looked straight down the other way and it was identical. I just stayed put in the crevice because I knew I was safe as long as I waited on the Lord to deliver me. Suddenly a deliverance angel showed up. He was massive, about 3 stories tall. He cradled and carried me off. In a deep, deep base voice he said, “It is a pleasure and honor to serve the Lord’s bride.” I felt very safe even though he was so massive. So I started asking him a pile of questions and he took much care in answering each one with a lot of patience and sincerity. As I listened to him, I knew English was not his normal language because he spoke with a deep accent.

When I came out of the vision, I laughed delightedly because I remembered his size, his face, his kindness, the depth and accent of his voice. But I didnt remember one question I asked him or any of his answers. That is SO much like God!


APPLICATION: As I was pondering the tight place in the vision I asked the Lord what the high pinnacle represented. I knew the crevice represented being hidden in the cleft of His rock. But this was a very tall, long narrow pinnacle peak, almost like the mountain had eroded away and all that was left was the strong rock dike sticking straight up from the ground. The word “pinnacle” was quickened to me as the 3rd testing of Jesus and that speaks of going through a time of testing the Lord’s patience as in the place of Meribah in Ex 17. The Amplified Bible shows the connections of these passages:

 

Luke 4:9-12 AMP
Then he took Him to Jerusalem and set Him on a gable of the temple, and said to Him, If You are the Son of God, cast Yourself down from here; For it is written, He will give His angels charge over you to guard and watch over you closely and carefully; And on their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. {Ps 91:11,12.} And Jesus replied to him, {The Scripture} says, You shall not tempt (try, test exceedingly) the Lord your God. {Deut 6:16.}

Deut 6:16 AMP
You shall not tempt and try the Lord your God as you tempted and tried Him in Massah. {Ex 17:7.}

Ex 17:3-7 AMP
ALL THE congregation of the Israelites moved on from the Wilderness of Sin by stages, according to the commandment of the Lord, and encamped at Rephidim; but there was no water for the people to drink. 2 Therefore, the people contended with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said to them, Why do you find fault with me? Why do you tempt the Lord and try His patience? 3 But the people thirsted there for water, and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to kill us and our children and livestock with thirst? 4 So Moses cried to the Lord, What shall I do with this people? They are almost ready to stone me. 5 And the Lord said to Moses, Pass on before the people, and take with you some of the elders of Israel; and take in your hand the rod with which you smote the river {Nile}, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at {Mount} Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water shall come out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. {1 Cor 10:4.} 7 He called the place Massah {proof } and Meribah {contention} because of the faultfinding of the Israelites and because they tempted and tried the patience of the Lord, saying, Is the Lord among us or not?

1 Cor 10:4 AMP
And they all drank the same spiritual (supernaturally given) drink. For they drank from a spiritual Rock which followed them {produced by the sole power of God Himself without natural instrumentality}, and the Rock was Christ. {Ex 17:6; Num 20:11.}

PIX: I saw a light flying from heaven down to earth. It landed on top of a doorway of some rafters. It was a lighted up sign that said, “Exit.” Immediately I thought of the word Exodus, which means “A way out.” The book of Exodus is the journey of how the Lord delivered His people from the heavy bondage of the taskmaster.

WORD TO PONDER 11/04/07 MY WAY OUT
Dear one, even in places where you are in a tight place and stuck, I have nestled you safely in the cleft of My rock and you are secure there as long as you wait upon Me to send you a way out. Do not try to defend yourself, save yourself, promote yourself or move yourself from this safe place. Simply rest knowing I have heard your cries.

I have heard your prayers and am sending angels of deliverance to set up circumstances for you to provide a way out. Even as I provided a way out of the wilderness, through the mass Exodus of My people, I have provided a way out for you. Straight from heaven’s resources, I have sent tokens of light that are Exit signs. Simply follow My signs and be carried out on the wings of deliverance.

Ex 23:20-26 NKJV
"Behold, I send an Angel before you to keep you in the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. 21 Beware of Him and obey His voice; do not provoke Him, for He will not pardon your transgressions; for My name is in Him. 22 But if you indeed obey His voice and do all that I speak, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries. 23 For My Angel will go before you and bring you in to the Amorites and the Hittites and the Perizzites and the Canaanites and the Hivites and the Jebusites; and I will cut them off. 24 You shall not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do according to their works; but you shall utterly overthrow them and completely break down their sacred pillars. 25 "So you shall serve the LORD your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you. 26 No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.
