The Suddenlies of Heaven
By Bob Jones and Paul Keith Davis
During the season surrounding the Biblical feast of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit once again identified the coming days as having particular significance. The feast of Pentecost began at sundown on June 5th and extended until the following evening. Thankfully, the Lord released strategic revelation that is continuing to provide further clarity into His heart for this crucial season of church history.
Be Strong and of Good Courage
At 1:30 AM the revelations began for Bob with the important commissioning of Joshua following the death of Moses. The admonition came from Joshua 1:9. It is an interesting affirmation that at the same time, my wife Wanda received instruction from Deuteronomy 9:1.
Although we may receive the gifts and anointing or "mantle" that rested upon someone else, that expression of Heavenly virtue remains unique to our individuality and generational mandate. We are not to emulate or copy others but remain faithful to who the Lord created us to be and seek to imitate the Lord Jesus.
A Dangerous Time
The Suddenlies of Heaven
At 5:08 AM a further instruction was given to Bob related to the "suddenlies" of Heaven. Although things may seem difficult and trying, they can suddenly change. Perhaps there have been promises and visions given to some that have seemingly died on the vine. However, they can abruptly come to life and become reality.
Remaining on the Path
Teachers will emerge who have encountered the Teacher and heard expressions from His lips that will provide clear and concise direction to help prevent us from stepping waywardly to the right or left. The Lord, our Teacher, will suddenly arise to provide access and greater understanding into the mysteries of the Kingdom.
Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, He your Teacher will no longer hide himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher. Your ears will hear a word behind you, "This is the way, walk in it," whenever you turn to the right or to the left. (Isaiah 30:20-21)
The path we have been called to travel is straight and narrow. We can only remain on this path by being ushered by the Spirit of Truth and embracing every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God. The Scriptures are not a matter of private interpretation, but men moved by the Holy Spirit will speak and write from the anointing of God revealing the mysteries of the Kingdom that will present the Bride without spot or wrinkle.
The Spirit of Restoration
On the morning of Pentecost I also received a dream in which an ancient sword was being restored. It was one of great value and prominence but had been lost and only recently excavated. Our sword of the Spirit is the Word of God.
Although this newly found sword bore the evidence of being buried, it was immediately put to use upon discovery. With it, we were able to eliminate nocturnal predators, devourers and other unclean adversaries.
My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my verses to the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Thou art fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Thy lips; therefore God has blessed Thee forever. Gird Thy sword on Thy thigh, O Mighty One, in Thy splendor and Thy majesty! And in Thy majesty ride on victoriously, for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; let Thy right hand teach Thee awesome things. (Psalm 45:1-4)
Personal Prophetic Promises Become Reality
This dream has been a further affirmation of a present release of anointing related to the Spirit of Truth and the fulfillment of personal promises. There is a specific grace that is coming to help give articulation to the revelation of Truth and the blueprint of Heaven. For us, the sword of this nature is representative of the Word of Truth and also indicative of a "word" of promise from the Holy Spirit. We are now in a season in which personal prophetic promises are becoming reality in quick fashion although some were made many years ago.
