The Angel Called Challenge
March 09, 2010
Saturday when the Bride comes together at our home to seek the voice and visions of Jesus we had been praying and pushing through and having instructions, we kept having vision after vision, then we all had the same vision of a coronation. A large room with trumpets being blow and then the honor guard army to show honor. We could hear the armies feet march in perfect step. I remembered that earlier in the day I had prayed that Jesus would make our dimension His Heaven. After many waves of glory and many visions and everyone laying hands on everyone to bless them we all sat down to rest. Some were setting on the floor resting.
At this time I saw an angel enter the room and walk across the floor looking at everyone and then he said, "what's going on here?". My first thought was if this angel if from the Lord then he should know what's going on. So in my spirit I asked the angel what his name was and very quickly he said "Challenge". I knew then that this was an angel of God. The angel had come to challenge us to keep praying and go deeper. I told the others and they looked a little shocked because the glory of God was very strong already but they knew that this was God because we had all been connected all night.
When we went back into prayer what we didn't realize was we had already prayed down all the walls of hindrances so we enter right in. As we started praying instantly the Lord spoke and said this is the next step I am calling my church to go to in order to bring them into the next dimension in me. This step is called Gethsemane. Wow. There is a sacredness to that word. We looked up the meaning of that word and it means "oil press".
After the prayer was so quick and we got through so quickly I was reminded of Rick Joyner’s book "the Final Quest". In his book he went into a cave at the foot of the mountain and it was full of treasures. There was large gemstones of different colors and when he picked them up they would cause him to experience different feeling of worship. Then when he picked up the red stone it knocked him to the floor because the red stone made him experience Gethsemane. When he experienced Gethsemane he was then ready to go to the next level.
This is where the Church is. We have to push through to give birth to what God is calling us to. We have to listen to the voice of Challenge. This is the voice of Jesus begging his disciples to tarry. This is the voice in Revelation that is calling "come up hither". When you've broken through and there are signs and wonders and we are at the place we have worked in prayer for, still the angel of the Lord is calling "I challenge you to come closer till you see the King".
We have come too far to turn back now.
The Israelites were challenged to enter the promised land and when they turned back they wondered in the wilderness then when they finally returned they found that God brought them in just as He had promised He would. That was Israel’s Gethsemane.
Will the Bride take the challenge or is this place good enough? Joshua and Caleb spirit arise and go forth and take the land. When the oil is pressed it flows to all, Families and friends.
