A Prophetic Moment in Time - History Watches at the Crossroads


Hi Loved Ones,

We recently suffered along side a family whose son died unexpectedly. When we lose loved ones, we are never prepared for it. When I went to prayer meeting a couple of weeks later, I was suddenly downloaded with the realization that generations of people died not receiving the promise. In fact, the revelation that not even one received the promise was a crushing blow. Let me explain.

I saw their faith, their expectant hearts, their trust in the Lord. I saw their hardships, their overcoming, their victories and failures. I saw their blood in the land, I saw their sacrifices, I saw it all and all I could say is, "Oh God, oh God, oh God." Most of them did not lay hands on the sick and see them recover. Most of them did not cast out demons and see the captive set free. Most of them did not see the dead raised. And of those that DID, they did not do greater works than Jesus. They did not see His glory. They did not see Him and know Him face to face. They had glimmers and only glimmers of many of the promises in the Word of God not yet fulfilled. (John 14:12, I Cor 2:9) Finally I groaned, "Oh Lord don’t let US die without walking in these promises! We are SO close, I can taste it. Oh Lord, don’t pass us by!"

As I was in the pit of the worst sense of abandonment and despair, it was the Lord Himself Who poured back into me. I saw all these mantles from heaven were pouring down upon people who were earnestly waiting. These mantles were like the fullest, most pregnant of seeds, ready to burst. They were the HARVEST that ALL generations of believers had not received on earth. They were the fruit of their prayers, their promises, their faith, their hope, their love, their sacrifices, their overcoming, their hardships and their victories; completely stuffed full and ready for harvest. The Lord took their own lives and poured them back into the ground of our lives that WE could receive the promises! (2 Kings 2:13) What a sobering and awesome thought to realize that all of heaven watches as we stand in readiness to receive the fruits of their rewards. (Heb 11:39,40)

After prayer meeting that day, my Dad passed through town on his way to another town. He brought me a wooden crate of old photographs. These pictures had been handed down in the family for generations, as far back as the mid 1800’s. As I poured over these, and saw the faces of names I had heard and those I had not, I kept thinking, "These were real people." They knew a different life than I did, but they were real people, with real hopes and real sorrows…. And all of them died. Oh God. I was right back where I had been that morning at prayer meeting. ALL of them died.

As my Dad passed by my computer, he noted the screen saver I had on, which was Thomas Kincaid’s. I told him how much I enjoyed them, and wanted to know if he would like to see another, since I had about 40 or so pictures to choose from. I randomly chose one not knowing what it was, or what the scripture said. It was called "Rose Gate" and was a picture of an opened gateway with no gate or door. The verse said, "The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of our God stands forever." As I went to bed that night, that verse was stirring in my heart and I looked it up. As I read it, it was so ripe. I felt like it was a visitation from the Lord as I read with the full impact of the day’s revealed history behind mere ink on paper.

Isa 40:1-8 NLT

"Comfort, comfort my people," says your God. "Speak tenderly to Jerusalem. Tell her that her sad days are gone and that her sins are pardoned. Yes, the LORD has punished her in full for all her sins." Listen! I hear the voice of someone shouting, "Make a highway for the LORD through the wilderness. Make a straight, smooth road through the desert for our God. Fill the valleys and level the hills. Straighten out the curves and smooth off the rough spots. Then the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together. The LORD has spoken!" A voice said, "Shout!" I asked, "What should I shout?" "Shout that people are like the grass that dies away. Their beauty fades as quickly as the beauty of flowers in a field. The grass withers, and the flowers fade beneath the breath of the LORD. And so it is with people. The grass withers, and the flowers fade, but the Word of our God stands forever."

Throughout the years I have had many visions of builders removing the stumbling blocks to build this holy highway through the wilderness. (Isa 35:8, 40:3, 62:10) These builders are intercessors and believers, who bore great heat and sacrifice. Some of them worked their whole life to remove just one rock, one hindrance in their pathway. And then suddenly I knew, this work had been going on for a very, very, long time. I had experienced my part, but this work had been taking place long before I was born. The Lord has been removing the stumbling blocks so that all people together will see the glory of the Lord. And today there is a long flat desert plain before us, built by generations of sufferers.

The following vision is an excerpt from my book, 101+ Ways God Speaks (And How to Hear Him). In context to this vision, I now see that this dry flat desert plain used to be full of rocks and hardship, sin and offense, mountains and valleys. It was not always this flat plain. And planted deep within its soils are many, many seeds.

"When I went to sleep on November 14, 1985, I had a strong yearning for Jesus. As I slept, He came to me and opened my eyes. I saw a huge, gigantic banner unfolding across the sky. This was so huge that it took the entire sky to unfold the banner and display what was written: It said, "THE LORD JESUS CHRIST." Suddenly I found myself in heaven looking down upon a vast desert. It was dry, brown, flat, and immense.

As I gazed upon the lifeless desert, someone was standing above and behind me declaring the scroll of Isaiah 35: "The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God. Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away."

After Isaiah 35 had been announced, I heard the Lord say, "And the desert shall blossom as a rose. It shall happen all at once, and it shall happen suddenly." Immediately I saw the desert come to life. The sight was astounding and oh so beautiful! Everywhere blossoms emerged: this dry, lifeless region became a spacious garden of color and beauty. Then I came out of the gazing vision. As I awoke, I was still in awe of what I’d seen, because it was so beautiful. I knew the Lord was speaking a promise of what He would be doing to our dry desert like lives. He was going to rain His Presence upon us and we would emerge with life and beautiful blossoms."

[end of vision]

These blossoms were planted by the seeds of generations of those who had died believing, but not seeing! (Heb 11:39) These blossoms burst forth in the glory of the Lord!!! I am humbled and awed that the Lord has chosen us to live in the days of such an amazing display of His glory. And it is only right that as we look toward the fulfillment of our own callings of destiny and glory - that we understand the great price behind the gifts we are about to receive. The fullness of the wealth of spiritual and natural gifts that are about to be bestowed upon us are not from any work of our own. (I Cor 1:26-29) We may have had a part in becoming prepared and being willing to go through our own fires, but the power and wealth of such gifts are far beyond history has ever known. It is far beyond what we have ever known or deserved. The harvest is truly coming.

And so today as we look forward to tomorrow — we ask ourselves, are we prepared, are we ready to walk into - and beyond the book of Acts? Today we stand on the threshold of time, where we are completing the final days of a lengthy season of judgment upon the righteous. [I believe this season was 11 years. As this chapter ends, the same fire passes to the world of the unrighteous. It will not be a pretty time for the world, and those of the church do not want to play with carnal fire, else they too become burned.] In this threshold of time, I see a crossroads burning through the desert. And we are now standing at the crossroads.

As a body, we have gone through a great stripping. As the women in Hosea 2, we have been taken into the wilderness and stripped of our false lovers, our comforts and idols. And we have returned to our first love in the midst of the fiery pain. We are learning to know Him as our Husband, the One Who loves us and Whom we would do anything for… not just our Master Whom we obey. And today as we stand stripped, judged and plundered, we stand in a crossroads of time with choices. Are we going to go back to Egypt? Are we running from our callings to the left or to the right? Or are we moving forward into the arms of One Who has wooed our hearts with passion and delight, and Who is a consuming fire that accepts no other gods in His place?

Today, as we prepare to become divine vessels of a holy, pure anointing… today, as we stand purified and prepared from the fire, many of us stand empty and waiting. We are empty of old life, old ways and old false comforts. We’ve had tastes of a divine life and yet we are not filled. We are left wanting and confined in the wounds of delayed hope. (Prov 13:12) And what are we going to do while we are waiting? Are we returning to old lovers or moving on to total consummation with a jealous, but purely devoted Husband?

Each one of us will come to this place. And whether we understand the choices set before us, we will make our choices. And those choices will determine the course set for our future. I am now seeing a dividing line drawn in the sands of time. I have already watched some taste the glory and walk away. I am already witnessing the separation as people make their choices at the crossroads. So MUCH is at stake, and so many watch from heaven for they have poured their very lives into what is about to take place in history. And what will we choose?

Deut 30:19-20 NLT

"Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, that you and your descendants might live!"

As I ponder this message from the Lord, I am sobered by my own weakness and humanity. And I once again say, "Oh God, oh God, oh God, do not pass me by." Let THIS be the generation receiving the promise.

Psalms 24 NKJV

The earth is the LORD's, and all its fullness,

The world and those who dwell therein.

For He has founded it upon the seas,

And established it upon the waters.

Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD?

Or who may stand in His holy place?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart,

Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,

Nor sworn deceitfully.

He shall receive blessing from the LORD,

And righteousness from the God of his salvation.

This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him,

Who seek Your face.


Lift up your heads, O you gates!

And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!

And the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory?

The LORD strong and mighty,

The LORD mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O you gates!

Lift up, you everlasting doors!

And the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory?

The LORD of hosts,

He is the King of glory.
