In a vision, I saw myself in a heavily wooded and green mountain region.
I saw myself wearing a camouflaged green uniform driving a particular piece of “excavating heavy equipment.”
I heard the word, “Yuke.”
This Yuke was huge and the color of the equipment was also camouflaged green! These Yukes are specialized pieces of heavy equipment used for “earth-moving” as the other excavating machines cut into a mountain, but removing all the rock and debris as they are all working in natural sequence in unity.
Then I heard the Holy Spirit speak this “Give us this mountain!”
“Now therefore “give me this mountain”, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said,” Joshua 14:12 KJV.
What or who has kept us back from preserving our true Godly Heritage and our inheritance?
God said, take it! And TAKE IT in the SPIRIT first, then you will see it manifest in the natural!
A quick work will The LORD do for the times are winding down. What mountain stands before your life?
“And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?” Zechariah 3:2 KJV.
There are spiritual specialist among us who are chosen “like experts” in blasting with dynamite power to break down and conquer large portions of this “Mountain” God wants you to take!
It will always become more intense and held to a higher standard when people dare to touch God’s anointed people and their anointed plan.
It always takes spiritual warfare to be able to take anything in the Spirit realm. There are spiritual battles in taking this mountain!
“and he said unto his men, The LORD forbid that I should do this thing unto my master, The LORD’S anointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of The LORD!” 1 Samuel 24:6 KJV.
When God said to “Take this Mountain,” God would have not said it unless He meant it!
It was His guarantee that He will be involved in this process.
However, we must realize that when we gain ground, we must maintain ground gained.
Nothing in life is totally free, because it cost something, somewhere! In this Life there are always struggles! When we cease to struggle, we die!
Even in birth, both the mother and child go through a lot of pain and struggle to bring that life into the world.
Our lives are filled with struggles that train and teach us to grow! Yes, it is often painful at times, but gaining anything worthwhile takes a struggle.
I can say that if God tells you to “Take this Mountain,” it is a guarantee that God wants you to have it!
All throughout Biblical and World history there were always wars over land and powers that be. Yes, we live in modern generations, but war is war, it only takes on a different face, but the goal is the same; to gain power and to conquer!
I have found that with those who hear the command to “take this mountain,” it can cause us to be intimidated! We see the revelation of the vision and the price attached to it and it can be overwhelming once we see it! Sometimes I have sat for days with the vision to be able to wrap my head around what God is speaking to me.
Just hearing that sentence, to “take this mountain” is a powerful statement!
We must realize if God told us to take it, then it means that God has brought us under His jurisdiction into position!
He is in charge over everything! He gives us the power above every situation and circumstance when He commissions us.
We are referring to deflating all doubt in our confidence and assurance. The enemy comes to deflate our progress like when Nehemiah had to stop the work due to fear and intimidation of the enemy.
There must be a deep and careful way that we close off ourselves to anything and everyone around us and focus our thoughts on God.
I am not saying that doubts are not real, and yes you do feel them! But your enemies are wanting you to focus and feel their shadows, fog, and vision they give to steal your clarity in God.
Even though Nehemiah’s circumstances were changing, he continued and went in obedience with God. He still had the letters of passage that the King had ordered to give him to ensure his safe passage across the land. However, the threat of adversity was real.
We are no different! When we are under pressure, we react!
The question is how we react to the words, feelings, and situations that are attempting to steal from our business and day. We must be instant in season and out of season when under pressure.
It is in these stressful times that confusion comes! Usually spoken words are what cause us to get into trouble.
Words that are spoken can be used to help or hurt! We must practice the discipline to bless and not hurt.
When God uses us for special use, we must press into God for directions not distractions.
“Dynamite” is derived from the Greek word Dunamis. Any time that there is a hindrance in an area or region, God’s Dunamis power responds to heavy prayer aimed and directed by prayer warriors as they press into the plans and the purposes of God!
God is obligated according to His Word, to bring his purposes to pass, for He watches over His word to perform it!
God directs Spiritual warfare and He intercedes through us in hope that all will come to repentance. When we tap into the Spiritual level, God’s Dunamis power is that force that destroys everything the devil tries to do.
There are those machines that slice and cut the mountain down to size but even these cannot do it alone.
These who have been prepared by God for such a long time realize they are all interdependent of each other.
However, it’s in the plan of the Father that his Spiritual DNA is passed down the line. We must cover and fight for each other’s freedom in obedience to God.
Those who have scaled the mountain and scoped out the vision of the Master, are hidden away for such a time as He wills.
You will find as you read this, that your eyes and senses are heightened in God, and you know God is there with you!
You will know this to be true as it will be like coded orders directly from God through the Holy Spirit.
For those who have learned and know who they are, have that rhythm of the dance built within them.
These heavy-duty machines don’t look delicate yet, when they flow in rhyme, harmony is found in such a place!
However, God places His vessels at the right time to be yielded to His process. These vessels and their purpose were from the beginning of time.
These were moved and destined by our Creator by what was intended from the beginning!
And now, time is! As we begin our various yielded dance in this world, in harmony, our process takes down hills, mountains, and various streams where it became a plain where once unusable ground made level for a straight path to gain.
“Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shouting’s, crying, Grace, grace unto it. Moreover, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, the hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth,” Zechariah 4:7 -10 KJV.
Sometimes it takes breaking down that mountain and speaking, “Who are you oh great mountain?!
I will make you into a plain! There you will have useable space when a leveling and balance occurs.
Even those heavy weights, that are grounded for the purposes of God, shall have heavy, weighty, equipment for moving the earth.
Runways for those who take flight, those who have top cover keeping us free to such a degree!
God will suddenly pull back His veil and suddenly God speaks, revealing the mission of everyone destined for purpose!
No matter what label or call, all give support to the mission of God!
In this vision, I faced that mountain again like at the beginning and it could have totally shaken my faith due to its enormous size and shape.
However, I remembered all of what God said to me and shown me, and against all odds, I began to rise in new levels of faith; with new raw grit, yes and for the wisdom of the hoary head too that I determined to listen to! If He bids me to come, I will come.
Suddenly I heard The Holy Spirit say, to “Shift into Low Gear!”
All the sudden I realized that high is low and low is high in the eyes of God. It wasn’t in the route or speed that gave good graces and perks of man.
For when you choose to shift low, it will take a lot lower and a lot longer but you will rise stronger when you climb to the high places with The LORD.
You must learn to shift low in prayer and be humble in your own estimation to pave the way of determination and the stronger you! It’s your choice; It is the humble that The LORD lifts up.
For the strength of your life is not found from your experience in LoDebar, but by understanding God’s training in the places of no pasture.
For shifting down low, gives you the power to climb to a new stronger you! Not even realizing your shift and choice affects more than you can possibly know.
For many will come after you and your life will affect so many that are true and on the right track.
Before you climb you must shift low to climb hard rugged mountains paving the way for others to come after you.
What we do in this life NOW is truly a matter of life and death. You were born for this beloved.
Just think God has planned from the foundation of the very world, for YOU and me to live and reign in this life with Jesus free!
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
