By Blake Higginbotham – Saturday 3-1-08
I had a vivid prophetic dream that I need to share with you so that you will know how to pray and better identify the battle that we are facing in the ongoing work of the ministry.
I was standing on top of a hill, looking out over a valley when fires began breaking out all over the region. Whenever I would stretch out my hand and point in a particular direction another fire would blaze up and begin to burn. As I waved my hand and pointed, fires began to blaze up as far as my eyes could see.
The next part of the dream involved a large arena in a fairground type setting. There were people there that I knew and recognized, and there were people with whom I was not acquainted. There were people waiting and people coming from all over the region to some kind of gathering with which I had a part.
The only problem that I seemed to be having in getting there on time was resistance by means of distraction and barriers of hindrance being thrown in my way and it appeared like I was going to be 30 or 40 minutes late to the gathering. Now, you know how much it means for us to be in the right place at the right time and you also know what it could mean to be late. It was then that I woke up and clearly remembered the dream as I recounted both parts. I have been saying for some time that we need to be prepared and aligned for what is coming, and that we are going to be a part of one of the greatest moves of the Spirit that this world has ever seen.
However, we are still facing many hindrances and obstacles that must be dealt with in order to recognize what Yahweh is assembling and come together at a set apart time and in the place of His choosing.
I am asking you to pray for all of us so that we will not miss out or be late to anything that Yahweh is putting together. Julia and I are trying to offload, put down or cut off whatever we must, in order to be a part of what Yahweh is doing in the Earth.
I awoke this morning (1/15) contemplating some things that I have been seeing and hearing for some time now. The above dream was what I was seeing and hearing at the time, and it has taken me over four years to begin to understand what Yahweh is doing in respect to the fires that were breaking out. The fires are now roaring toward one another as they burn together to become one giant bonfire. The heat and sound that is coming from the fire is almost too much to endure, and everyone who is seeing and hearing it realizes that they are most certainly going to be consumed in this hour. No amount of wind and rain can put this fire out and we are now facing the choice of running and jumping headlong into the fire or we may find ourselves running away from the fire in Holy Terror. One thing you need to accept is there will be those who will follow us into the fire and there are those who will simply come to watch us burn.
I for one have chosen to be burn and be consumed by Yahweh as all remaining combustible material is burned up by His Holy Fire. Let it burn!
1 Corinthians 13: 9-15 For we are Yahweh’s fellow workers; you are Yahweh’s field, you are Yahweh’s building. 10According to the grace of Yahweh which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.11For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Yahshua Messiah. 12Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,13each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.14If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.15If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
Something else that I have been seeing and hearing has to do with a prophetic similitude that we are like a rib that was taken out of the last man Adam. An incision was made on the impaling post and the blood and water flowed out of Yahshua’s side the closest thing to His heart. His covenant seed flowed out of His side on that day; but we have lived and grew up in Babylon. We have all drunk of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; but by Yahweh’s grace we have not perished. Yahweh by His Spirit took us and made bride for His Son and now we are coming back into Him. Once we fully come back into Him, He will stand up and we will be in Him. Messiah has been formed in us and we have become the glory bringing hope; but we must choose to come back into Him where we will become one, and know and we are known. The day of individual mandates and expressions are over for some of us. The time has come for us to count everything loss for the Excellency of the knowledge of Him.
Philippians 3:7-11 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Messiah.8Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Messiah Yahshua my Sovereign, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Messiah 9and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Messiah, the righteousness which is from Messiah by faith;10that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 11if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Holy Spirit is also speaking to me about the tributaries that have flowed away from Him, and how they are now drying up in order to cause us to flow back into Him. In the natural tributaries fill with the run-off water and flow into the river that in turn flows down to the ocean. The opposite is true in the Spirit. We were born out of the flow of the river of life, and from there we formed tributaries that flowed away from Him. We have constructed man-made ravines and canals and have tried to divert the river of life into them. The time has come for us to get in our little john-boats and paddle our way back to the river where we will swim upstream back into the Father’s heart.
It will be like the migration of salmon that use all of their remaining life to swim against the flow in order to arrive at the spawning beds, where they lay their eggs for fertilization. Once their eggs have been laid and fertilized, they will die and give their lives for the next generation of Salmon. For some of us it is no longer about individual mandates or expressions and we are now giving the rest of our lives to the next generation.
If you can hear it, everybody is not hearing the same sound, voice or frequency, and it will take time for us to come together in Him. On the other hand, if where you are is hot, dry and unproductive, you may want to consider how all these dreams and visions fit into where you presently find yourself.
