During my time of prayer, I was seeking God’s wisdom regarding this new month and season. I looked and I saw a long lineup of saints, as far as my eyes could see. The lineup started in the Throne Room of God. As each man and woman approached the throne, they knelt on one knee as The Lord placed, what looked like a glass cloche on their head.
-A cloche (from the French word for bell) is a bell-shaped dome that is used to cover and shield small, delicate plants, from the frost, creating tiny ecosystems in which the plants thrive and grow.
According to Dr. Joe Ibojie, bells represent: Call to attention or action. To bring alertness. To say it loudly; public warning.
This headgear not only covered their head but also their ears, eyes, nose, and mouth.
I asked The Lord: “How are they going to be able to breathe with their head completely covered?”
The Lord said:
Under this protective headgear, they will find everything they need to thrive in this new ERA! Their minds will be protected from the lies of the enemy and the media, but instead will be filled with knowledge, wisdom, and revelation right from My Throne Room! Their dream life, encounters, and visions will increase, and new giftings will be activated, as they encounter Me in new ways. Their eyes will be shielded from focusing on what they see in the natural, but will instead be equipped with new lenses that will enable them to see in the spirit and focus on My Truth!
Their ears will be fitted with filters that will keep out the noise, chatter, and negativity coming out of people’s mouths and will only be tuned in to My frequency! Their mouths will be unable to speak anything that is not according to My will and My Word! The air that they breathe under this covering will be My Ruahk, breath of life! No virus or infection, whether spiritual or physical will be able to penetrate this shield! Everything that comes against them will bounce off and be cast back into hell! The perfect spiritual ecosystem will engulf every gate, saturating every pore to the point of overflow! Signs and wonders will be the norm and they will be reinvigorated not only in mind but in body as well.
I tell you! The world has tried to muzzle you! The world has tried to stop you from worshipping Me!! But I am bestowing upon you a new type of protective headgear, one that works as a weapon as well and it NEVER fails! A weapon that is GOD approved and faith empowered! For I tell you, a time is coming that will cause many to fall into confusion, doubt, and hope deferred, worse than what you’ve seen, and this protective headgear will be the new “essential”. It will be a battle of the mind! My words against the words of man! My truth against the lies of the media! My promises against the curses of those with hidden agendas! Guard all your gates, for the battle against your mind will be fierce and you will need My wisdom!
So I asked: “Father, where do I get one?! I want to be prepared!”
The Father answered:
There are three keys to receiving one and one key to keeping it effective.The first is to humble yourself, forgive others and ask for forgiveness for I cannot accept your prayers until you do.
Matthew 6:14-15 NKJV
“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Matthew 5:23-24 NLT
“So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you,24 leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God.
The second one is to study My Word daily.
Romans 10:17 NKJV
So then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
Matthew 4:4 NKJV
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”
The third one is to spend time with Me in the secret place. If My Holy Son did, how much more will you have to?
Matthew 6:6 NLT
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
Matthew 14:23 NLT
After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone.
Mark 6:46 NLT
After telling everyone goodbye, he went up into the hills by himself to pray.
Luke 6:12 NLT
One day soon afterward Jesus went up on a mountain to pray, and he prayed to God all night.
Mark 1:35 NLT
Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray.
Luke 5:16 NLT
But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer.
Luke 9:18 NLT
One day Jesus left the crowds to pray alone. Only his disciples were with him, and he asked them, “Who do people say I am?”
The one key to keeping it effective is to take care of My temple. If My temple is not healthy, you will compromise the efficacy of this new covering.
1 Corinthians 3:16 NKJV
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NKJV
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
3 John 2
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Just as bells are sounded to call the faithful to worship, to sound an alarm, to bring attention, to warn the public about danger, I believe there is a clarion call being sounded to rededicate, reconsecrate, our whole lives completely and wholly to God. To steward our gifts, callings, and our health. Our body, soul (mind, will, and emotions) and spirit are interconnected; if one suffers, the other two cannot function to their full potential. Taking care of our bodies, by eating healthy, exercising, getting fresh air, and taking the time to relax and destress are all essential things to a healthy body and mind, and by doing so we are honoring God’s temple.
Two years ago I went through a deep time of repentance over the injuries I had caused to my body by overworking it. I remember weeping as I hugged myself, asking my body for forgiveness for abusing it. I know it sounds strange, but the relief and soul healing I felt afterward was enormous, and I have learned to say no to certain things, that I know will cause me more pain or further injure my body. Being in pain, overweight or sick can cause one to fall into depression, to feel guilty, angry, and also cause more damage to our bodies. We need to do what is in our power to keep our temple healthy. If you are afflicted by any sickness I pray the healing power of God touches you right now and that The Holy Spirit would anoint you from head to toe with the balm of Gilead and that you might rise up from your bed of sickness in the mighty name of Jesus!
There is a warning to the church of an imminent spiritual attack on the mind like no other!
Many are coming out of a dark, cold season, weak and hopeless, but just as the gardener lovingly covers the little, delicate plants with a cloche so that they may be protected by the harsh elements, so The Lord is going to shield and protect us IF we will do what is required!
Be encouraged brothers and sisters, don’t fall into fear, doubt, and discouragement, because The Lord Our God Has already provided us with the solution and the tools to accomplish His will. Let’s bend our knees, lift up our hands and gird up our loins, for our time is now!
