The night of January 6th I dreamt that I was in my shop and my staff was talking about staying open all throughout the night. I approached them and asked:” Why would we be open during the night?”
The answered: “Daniel told us we need to.” As soon as they told me that, I knew that the reason why we needed to stay open all throughout the night was that it was the night of January 6th, the Epiphany.
I was very annoyed and was not looking forward to being up all night working.
I went to my husband and asked in a whiny tone:” Do we really need to stay open all night??”
He excitingly replied:” Yes, it’s the Epiphany!”
As I woke up from this short, but a very significant dream, The Lord spoke to me very clearly and said:
If you want to experience Me and My glory in ways you have never experienced before, you’re going to have to do things you’ve never done before. Things that make you uncomfortable, things that stretch you beyond your capacity, things that are beyond yourself. Everything I ask you to do has a purpose, and if I am asking you to do it, it’s because I know that you can. I have placed everything you need to accomplish the mission, on the inside of you, you have been equipped; and as you accomplish that mission, you are being equipped for the next one. You’re going from faith to faith, and glory to glory. As you begin to walk this uncharted territory, you will encounter many forks on the road. The one that you will be tempted to take, is the one that seems peaceful and safe, the one that looks more familiar, the one that requires no effort, and will not bring transformation or manifestation to your life. While the bumpy one, the one with hills and valleys, the one full of unknowns, the one that makes you weak in the knees, will bring you to the most beautiful place you’ve ever been to. A place of metamorphosis; a place called “Epiphany”! In this place, you will know Me in ways you’ve never known Me before. You will experience things you’ve never experienced before. You will experience many theophanies along the way because through your journey of radical faith and obedience, you will be transformed into a new creation, who you are meant to be in Me! And this transformation will allow the eyes of your spirit to open to a new realm, your mind will adjust its capacity to perceive the mysteries that I have hidden from the wise, but revealed them to the ones who have childlike faith! As you yield to Me, as you make Me your dwelling place, I will show you great and mighty things, things that only those who have died to themselves and have a renewed mind, those who have the mind of Christ, can understand. Only by knowing Me intimately, you will be able to perceive such things, because they surpass human understanding. Just as My son was the human manifestation of Me to the world, you will be the manifestation of My son to the world, as you walk in your God-given identity and destiny. I Am preparing you for more, don’t resist the stretching, the crushing, the dying to yourself and your desires. I Am fashioning you into My son’s image! You are the clay; I Am the potter! Shall the clay tell the potter what to make it into?! The secret to knowing Me and My mysteries is obedience. Write down the instructions I have given you, and start walking in them, as you do, you will know Me in new ways, and discover a place called Epiphany!
Habakuk 2:1-3 NKJV
I will stand my watch And set myself on the rampart, And watch to see what He will say to me, And what I will answer when I am corrected.
The Just Live by Faith
2 Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.
Remnant, if we desire to live in a constant place of Epiphany; a place of revelation and manifestation, we need to live in a place of constant obedience, faith, and communion with our Father. We need to watch, and listen, write the instructions down on paper, and on the tablets of our hearts. We need to set our face like flint towards those instructions and start walking them out, no matter how strange, hard, inconvenient, uncomfortable, costly, or crazy they are! He Has already provided a way; we only need to step out in obedience. Our strength and hope are in Him. Without Him, we cannot accomplish anything, but in Him, we can do all things!
