A New Season is Upon Us: We Pray for Eyes to See

Something good and wonderful is being released for us. It is now dawning and is quickly drawing near.

At the end of 2019, the Lord told me not to send out messages until I was directed to do so by Him. He said that everything was about to change dramatically and we would have a difficult time keeping up with the process. Then I was told to rest for a season. I have been faithful to my instructions from the Lord. For me, Yom Kippur has always been a time of amazing visions, dreams, and heavenly visits with the Lord. As this day drew near, I began to feel a quickening in my spirit and believed that my time of silence was coming to an end. This happened the morning of Yom Kippur Eve, Saturday, September 26th at 11:00 in the morning.  

I was carried in the Spirit to a heavenly place. It appeared to be early morning just before the light was about to dawn. It was very dark outside like the darkness the world has been in during most of 2020. Suddenly on the left side of the horizon, I saw a blue rectangle getting larger and moving toward us. The light in the rectangle seemed to be dancing with joy. I don’t know exactly how I knew that, but I felt this very strongly. I immediately learned from the Holy Spirit that something good and wonderful is being released for us and it is now dawning and is quickly drawing near. Then I saw some numbers written in the sky. The numbers were also blue and seemed to be dancing. I saw the number “11” and then the number “7” written in a very large form in the now beautiful early morning blue sky. 

I received this as a promise from the Lord that we should begin to expect, lean into, and pray for something wonderful which is coming to us on the seventh day of November. Are you ready for something new and powerful from the Lord? It is time to prepare our spirits to receive an abundant outpouring from the Lord. Amen?

At sundown on the first evening of Yom Kippur, I had an awesome spiritual experience with the Lord. As I walked toward our upstairs worship room, I stepped into an area where there was a very strong fragrance of burning incense. This was not the first time I had an experience like this outside our worship room. I love it every time it happens. So I stepped back and walked through it again. The fragrance was still there and I was filled with expectancy for what the Lord was about to do. Then my wife, Gloria, walked through it and could clearly distinguish the fragrance of burning incense. It was as if we walked past the golden altar of incense on our way into the Most Holy Place.

As I entered the room, I encountered the power of His presence. Some of you know what I am talking about. I couldn’t sit down for a while. I stood trembling in what felt like an electrical storm dancing all around me. I couldn’t sit down in my worship chair, but I really didn’t want to sit while the presence of the Lord was covering me. I wanted to soak it all in. So I moved around the area to receive more. When I was able to sit down, I saw an amazing vision. My eyes were closed but I clearly saw heaven open over us. It appeared as if the roof of our house was gone and the heavens split open. As I looked up, it became clear that the opening was revealing something awesome. It was the throne room in heaven. As I looked up into the presence of the Lord (the most Holy Place promised by the fragrance of the burning incense) two powder blue ropes were being lowered down from heaven into our room. 

I held firmly to the two powder blue ropes which were lowered from heaven into our room. They were not like regular ropes with the rough hemp fibers but were like velvet-covered ropes on the dividers in a theater. I reached out in the natural realm with my right hand to take hold of something in the spiritual realm. Then I reached out with my left hand and held the rope close to my chest. As I held the rope close to my heart, it began to be drawn up toward heaven. Soon I was lifted in the spirit and pulled through the center of a host of pure white angels who were now encircling the rope. I thought these were holiness angels and I was reminded that it is His holiness and not ours which opens the way for us to experience His presence. 

A fiery angel was waiting above the others and accompanied me into Heaven. In the Throne Room, I stood before Father God with my head bowed low. I wept and trembled in His presence. I was filled with a desire to fall face down before Him, but the angel next to me held me up. I didn’t weep because of sadness or fear, but because of the overpowering emotion of being in the presence of the Lord. I was reminded of Psalm 96:9, “Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.”

I was led by the Lord down a wide path in Heaven. This was something I had experienced before and I was taken now to this same area for a second time. The path led to a huge opening with a crystal clear view of the Universe. As I stood in awe of the innumerable array of stars before me, I experienced an overwhelming sense of God being in control of everything in creation. He made it all and He is sustaining all things by His grace and His power. As I looked out into the beauty of His work, I was filled with an awareness that everything is well and that the great Shalom of the Lord is available to all who seek His face and long to be in a close relationship with Him. Are you enjoying His presence more and more and fearing the world less and less?

As I was led back into the Throne Room, I noticed that something like smoke covered the floor. It was about three to four feet deep throughout this holy place. I took comfort knowing that it was the cloud of His presence, and all who desire can walk in the awesome glory of His presence. Are you ready to do some cloud walking today? As I stepped into the cloud, I was given an awesome vision of the Lord which filled me with awe and respect which was transforming me in spirit, soul, and body. 

Then I was given a vision in which I saw a lantern on the limb of a tree and it was glowing with a powder blue light. Several yards beyond the lantern, I saw a house filled with red and blue lights. It seemed like the lights were dancing inside the house. When I saw these colors, my mind began to consider the colors of the two political parties seeking to take power in the USA. I was immediately corrected by the Holy Spirit. I was told, “Don’t let politicians steal the Father’s light and colors. In the spiritual realm, red means redemption, and blue means revelation. A season is opening with a great outpouring of both. Get your mind off of the world and focus on the Lord in this coming season.” 

This season will fully manifest beginning on the seventh of November, however, it has already begun in the spiritual realm. Those operating in that realm will be able to see it progressing now. Are you a seer? Please open your spiritual eyes to see it now. It is as simple as the prayer of Elisha in 2 Kings 6:17, “And Elisha prayed, and said, ‘LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.’ Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” I pray for you now. Lord, I pray, open the eyes of all your servants in this season to see what is happening in the spiritual realm.” Amen!
