I have had many encounters this year where I have been hearing the Lord speaking louder than I have ever heard it or felt it. “Come deeper, go slow, I am calling you to marinate in My presence, linger with Me”.
There is such an invitation upon us as His people right now to behold Him and gaze upon His beauty, more deeply than ever before.
I have felt such a strong encouragement from the heart of the Lord, that now is the time to press deeper into the secret place with Him, more than ever before.
The weight of His Presence and Glory is increasing and there is a call to “go slow”, to “marinate” in His presence, to “linger” with Him, and to eliminate rush.
His Glory is coming in such a way it will cause His people to be face down as His brilliance comes crashing in like never before.
It’s the Ezekiel 44:4 place:
“Then He brought me by the way of the north gate to the front of the house; and I looked, and behold, the glory of the Lord FILLED the house of the Lord, and I fell on my face” (AMP)
Thick clouds of His Glory will fill rooms like we have never seen before.
I had a vision and I saw people in their secret place with Him and the thick cloud of His Glory came. In homes, in prayer groups, and in worship gatherings. His weighty Glory is upon us. GO SLOW! Make room! Marinate!
For there are things that the Lord is sowing deeply into your heart and into your lives, in the secret place that need time to marinate and to grow.
There are deeper encounters with His heart, deeper revelations from His heart that He is releasing, that are to be received and stewarded with tenderness, care, and time to allow what He is doing and releasing to flourish and blossom forth.
There is a woo-ing of His heart deeper into the secret place to KNOW HIM. No other agenda, no other desire than to know Him and encounter Him.
There is a deep, deep call to prayer and intercession in unprecedented ways. The groaning is increasing.
There is a call to study the Word deeper than ever before. To nestle ourselves not only deeply in the secret place with Him, in the place of deep intimacy, but also in the Word.
There is a deep, deep call to study the Word, to KNOW the Word, and allow the Word to minister to you. There is a deeper place of marinating in the Word of God that He is woo-ing His people into.
The eyes of the Lord are roaming the earth and He is looking for those who will LINGER in His presence, not out of “religious duty” but out of LOVE for Him. He is looking for those who are looking for Him with great adoration, to minister to Him and are making room in their lives in a fiercely radical way to minister unto Him, first and foremost.
I heard the Lord say “There are new realms of My Glory that I am inviting My people into right now. Position yourselves. Position yourselves. Marinate in My presence. Eliminate rush, eliminate busyness, come deeper into My presence, for I have great and unsearchable things to reveal to you. Ask Me!” (Jeremiah 33:3)
It was then that I heard the thundering of His heart:
“IT IS THE TIME OF MYSTERIES REVEALED! IT IS THE TIME OF MYSTERIES REVEALED”
The depth of what I felt when He spoke those words, I do not have English words for. I could feel the thunderings of Daniel 2:22, Jeremiah 33:3, Revelation 4:1, and Proverbs 25:2
“Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you (and even show you) great and mighty things, (things which have been confined and hidden), which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish” (Jeremiah 33:3 – AMP)
“It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness and the light dwells with Him.” (Daniel 2:22 – AMP)
“After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a (war) trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.” (Revelation 4:1 – AMP)
“It is the Glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings to search out a matter” (Proverbs 25:2 – AMP)
What the Lord is inviting His people into this time is sacred, what He is revealing and releasing to His friends, in the secret place, is deeper than I have ever felt it.
Such deep encounter with knowing Christ, living and moving and having our being IN HIM (Acts 17:28), seeking to know Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2), walking deeply anchored in knowing the Word and walking in the revelation that flows from His mouth (Matthew 4:4) and indescribable realms of His Glory and the supernatural, it’s upon us.
The heart of God is longing to reveal mysteries like never before. It’s the time of mysteries revealed, but He is looking for those who will linger. Go slow. Marinate. Be with Him. Be like Joshua who lingered. (Exodus 33:11)
I hear the thundering of His heart that came in a dream that I had where He spoke of a new era that was coming, that we have now entered.
“For those who will linger, I will entrust the secrets of My heart.”
