I woke up from a dream on September 16, 2019 and heard these words: “This is the Day of Intercession.” I could feel the weight behind it and the substance of the words which thundered through my spirit.
I knew in the spirit realm that we were entering into a new level of intercession, and that our prayers had a great foundation built because of the intercession of Believers throughout the passages of time. I knew that we were now standing on the shoulders of those who stood in the gap from days gone by (and we honor them).
It’s Time to Ramp Up!
I heard a mandate in the Spirit and heard the Lord say, “It is time to RAMP UP the intercession!” I could hear that it was time to go deeper, higher and wider.
After I heard this, I felt a sense of urgency. In the dream I felt that we (the Church) were being called to leave the comfort of our homes (our comfort zones), as if leaving everything behind. I could not see anyone carrying anything in the dream, and we all began to gather on the street. We were discerning what was happening as we came out of our homes, looking at one another. There was a broadcast message coming to our spirits, telling us to run. It was like we were receiving direction without words on which way we were to run.
I could see myself out on the street and I could see others gathering behind me who were receiving the broadcast into their hearts. We were receiving the same message at the same time. People were coming out to the street from the comfort of their homes, and getting ready to run. We all knew, instinctively, which way we were going to run. There was a place of safety that had been prepared and was waiting for us.
The Place of Intimacy
I could see myself starting to run with all my might, and then, while still dreaming, I suddenly found myself in a bed in between white sheets. It was a pure place, and I knew this was the first place we all had to come to. This was our first stop. It was the stop that was necessary to bring us to the next place that we would have to run to.
The first place had been made ready for us. It was already prepared. As I saw myself in the bed between the white sheets, I knew it was a place of intimacy and a place to rest.
I heard the Lord say, “There is a call, a broadcast, that is going out to run with URGENCY to this place of intimacy. It is urgent, and required, in order to go further than you ever have been.”
In the dream, I was then taken into a grocery store, and I knew it was imperative that we buy food to take with us (the bread of life, the Word). Again there was a feeling of urgency. I felt there was a time-stamp to do this NOW. The atmosphere was solemn and everyone was beginning to get the message. The “fear of the Lord” was present and saturated into the atmosphere.
I then heard the Lord say, “You must step into this NOW. I am unlocking hearts for the next level of intercession—for deep intercession that ONLY COMES from a place of intimacy with Me. Run with all you have to intimacy!”
Hear the Sound of Rain
In my dream, I was reminded of Noah building the arc. When there was no rain to be seen with the natural eye, Noah heard the sound of rain.
Hebrews 11:7 TPT, “Faith opened Noah’s heart to receive revelation and warnings from God about what was coming, even things that had never been seen. But he stepped out in reverent obedience to God and built an ark that would save him and his family…”
God says, “Your intercessions are building an arc; you hear the sound of rain now and you hear the sound of the future. You have begun to build, but you need to ramp it up. You need to have intercession going higher, deeper, wider, from your homes, entering into that place of intimacy, coupled with the food, the bread of life, the Word, fresh manna—building, forming, fashioning, calling forth, pushing back, pushing forward, pushing out, pulling in, and COMING INTO AGREEMENT with what I have already said.”
Just as Noah heard the sound of rain and began to build, so did Elijah hear the sound of rain; nothing had been seen yet, but after looking over and over again, a cloud the size of a man’s hand was seen. Immediate intercession to birth the rain was required. A man, a prophet and a prophetic intercessor, was birthing. It was a “NOW” intercession. There was urgency on it. This is that moment of intercession. This is that now time to push.
1 Kings 18:41-42, “And Elijah said to Ahab, ‘Go up, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.’ So Ahab went up to eat and drink. But Elijah climbed to the summit of Carmel, bent down on the ground, and put his face between his knees.”
I heard the Lord say that we will enforce what God has already spoken. We are going to build according to His instructions…right down to the very details in the spirit.
We are the enforcers, we are the wild ones in intercession.
Psalm 149:9 TPT, “Praise-filled warriors will enforce the judgment—doom decreed against their enemies. This is the glorious honor He gives to all His godly lovers…”
Just because we have reached one level of intercession does not mean it’s time to get comfortable. Just because we have victory at one level doesn’t mean it’s time to stop building. It is time to ramp up the intercession for our personal, corporate, national and global Kingdom affairs. On Earth as it is in Heaven. Intercession is feeling what is to come (the will of God) and coming into agreement with it. We are the portals.
I hear the Lord say that it is time for us as one, discerning the Body properly, to come into agreement with what God says. There is an urgency to run into intimacy now; from there we will get our next step.
Hebrews 10:16 TPT, “Afterwards, I will give them this covenant: I will embed My laws into their hearts and fasten My Word to their thoughts.”
Isaiah 30:21 TPT, “When you turn to the right or the left, you will hear His voice behind you to guide you, saying ‘This is the right path; follow it.'”
