[The Past Has Passed]

HEARD [3/02/04]: Come on baby. Keep going. DON'T QUIT.

[Hearing this reminded me that a few years ago as I was walking down the hall, I heard a loud voice speak an emphatic, "I QUIT!" That began a season of intercession for many on the front lines who were suffering from strong winds of opposition.]


[NOTE: The following dream took place several years ago after I went through a difficult storm that lasted 3 ˝ years.]

DREAM: I was lying on the ground flat on my face. Suddenly Michael flew by overhead and I popped my head up and said, "Hi Michael!" I didn't meant to say this, it just popped out of my mouth. He said, "I need volunteers." I replied, "I'm sorry, but I am just too tired." He continued as though I had said nothing: "They need to be all washed up and ready to quit. They don't need to do anything but just watch." Then I had a vision where I saw myself flattened on a golf course and he came over and picked me up off my face and stood me to my feet. {Dan 8:18, 10:9. Golf course cross references with the post titled, "Perfect, Completed Faith."}

HEARD: Done and ready to quit. Tired. They've been on the front lines. He told me to ask you. A friend loves at all times.


EXPERIENCE [3/02/04]: Right before I went to bed last night, my lap top took its last breath.

VISION: I saw the word "Recovered" on a file in Microsoft Word.

{In computer language, if a computer crashes, when my writing program called "Word" opens again, it will boot up the last version saved, entitled recovered. However this vision was an object lesson, as my computer had literally died and would not open again.}

HEARD: Exactly. Look at Me, I am doing a new thing. Don't look back. Walk and keep your eyes open, I have something to show you. Put the "I quit" behind you.

REOCCURRING SONG: When I woke this morning I was singing the song, "Michael row your boat ashore." I was not sure what it meant, but I hadn't thought of that song in years and I knew it must be the Lord. I turned with anointed hands in my Bible to this scripture:

Ps 65:7 NLT

You quieted the raging oceans with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations.

IMPRESSION: I had the impression that just as Jesus calmed the sea when they were in the boat, so had the Lord sent Michael to bring the ship safely to shore through a raging storm.

Mark 4:39-41 NKJV

Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!"


CONFIRMATION: Minutes after I wrote this post, we went out for errands. My eye caught a Kareoke sign that said, "Come sing with Michael!" The Lord sure knows how to give me joy, I just love the ways He speaks!



Michael, row the boat ashore, Hallelujah. Michael, row the boat ashore, Hallelujah. Sister, help to trim the sails, Hallelujah. Sister, help to trim the sails, Hallelujah. River Jordan's deep and wide, Hallelujah. Milk and honey on the other side, Hallelujah. River Jordan's chilly and cold, Hallelujah. Chills the body, but warms the soul, Hallelujah. The trumpets sound the Jubilee, Hallelujah. The trumpets sound for you and me, Hallelujah. Then you'll fear the trumpet sound, Hallelujah. Sinner row to save your soul, Hallelujah.




{Words to Ponder are summaries of His quickened Words}


You have stood the test of time, dear one. I gave you grace to stand on the front lines in the storm and I upheld you all the way. It was only afterwards when I brought you into a season of rest that you found yourself flat on your face before Me. You have been so low that you have hardly noticed the change.

If you would but look up for a moment, you will notice that the raging waves are still and you are being sustained in My peace. The reason you have not yet applied this to your level of faith, joy and assurance is that you continue to look at your storm as it was. Beloved, the raging is behind you. Place your focus on Me for I have something to say to you.

Your "I quit" button has died, behold I make all things new. I have brought you safely to the other side. I AM doing a new work for a new place in a new journey to a new land. Now I am needing volunteers to watch and pray. I am not asking you to stand guard duty as in your past, but watch duty. You have yet to experience the difference. Open your eyes and see. Look before you, dear one, there is new land for the taking.

Ps 89:8-9 NKJV

LORD God of hosts, Who is mighty like You, O LORD? Your faithfulness also surrounds You. You rule the raging of the sea; When its waves rise, You still them.
