Those who follow my blog will remember the article SACRED PILGRIMAGE. We posted it June 10th 2012. I didn’t understand the significance of the date 6/10/12 until I realized later the key scripture for SACRED was Ss 6:10. Twelve, depicting the GOVERNMENT OF GOD in what I’m about to share with you.
SACRED PILGRIMAGE spoke of a people who found refuge in the mountains of Turkey. We didn’t know (at the time) this would actually be a prophetic word for the persecuted Christians of Syria and Iraq seeking refuge. Some of these have landed in the mountains of Turkey, desperate for food and water. Thankfully, the Kurds and Turks, are helping. France is giving them asylum; Russia helping, as well. In fact, what many don’t know is how much Russia has intervened for persecuted Christians in the past. We pray more countries will help.
Sacred Pilgrimage is a picture of the BRIDE OF CHRIST on the move through out all the earth.
In the SPIRIT she is the vessel of HIS Glory, she is a WARRIOR-ESS waiting for HER kinsman redeemer, CAPTAIN, and KING. The one who makes herself ready. I’ve seen her procession, it is earth bound, now, but a cloud of witnesses is ever present with her, as the Glory of Christ rests upon her. She is the Remnant Nation, from all nations. One in the Spirit. She is armored. IN GOD’s heavenly preview of the SACRED PILGRIMAGE I’ve seen her procession on horses, and well able to war … thousands of banners flapping in the wind, each banner told the bearer’s story, identified their inheritances, in Christ, and depicted tribal identities. They bore upon them emblems, and markings; signifying testimonials, to be reminded of. That one would ask, “What does this mean?” And the saint would be given an opportunity to tell of the goodness and graciousness of the Father. But, the tallest banner of all, was the same for all, and all had one. It was crimson red and from the eagle’s eye view of redemption, one thing was clear, we were under the blood, and our mobile assembly across the land appeared like a flowing river that reached deep into the crevices and cracks of the earth in a HOLY STREAM, cleansing all in its wake, a symbolic display of Christ’s offering for the remission of sins, and the declaration that is ours from the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ:
We will overcome them by the BLOOD of the LAMB and the WORD of our TESTIMONY.
Revelation 12:11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.
Simultaneously, in this vision, what this army was doing was a search, rescue, and RECOVERY, kind of expedition. SEEKING and SAVING those who were lost; recovering destiny, and inheritance, gathering them in as she moves across land and sea. The woman of Solomon 6:10, the beloved, brings healing, ministry, repair, and provision, not only in HIS name, but on HIS behalf. Whosoever is His that she embraces, is being held in the arms of the one who sent her, the savior. As HE is so are We in the world. Whether you’re assistance is boots on the ground, INTERCESSORY prayer, or in giving, the Bride is on a mission, and it is the preliminary work of Christ’s return. Though, for war she is logistically ready, at present, she still operates in the anointing of the Shepherdess of lambs, in the patience of Christ, balancing temperance to preserve (even the souls of HER own persecutors).
This is Christ’s power and authority bridled in the spirit of the meek. While entrusting God in the how and when for judgement, with or with out the laws of the lands, that He has established. Of these, whom the spirit of might and power have rested upon, whom also, have yielded this empowerment by submitting it to God, in long suffering. That same restraint of POWER was tested greatly in Christ himself, in the threats against his disciples, at his arrest. In the pulling of his beard, in the markings of His body, in the stripping of his clothes, and as he hung from the cross; this is also, our greatest test to overcome. Christ himself said he could have called ten thousand angels, but he entrusted himself in the Father’s hands. Will we seek revenge when lies cause the derailment of ministry, the defacement of intent, and the humiliation that comes with loss, as the result of lawless offenders? Or, will we submit those things committed to our sacred trust over to the will and greater purpose of the Father?
The Bride moves onward, as does the GROOM.
In HIS interest she preaches reconciliation, practicing forgiveness, and restraint. Still, THE LION of JUDAH is stirred! He- even now, is checking the bit and bridle, running his hand across the tuft and forehead of the WARHORSE that will ride him into battle. With one last tug on the straps, he looks out towards earth’s setting sun, knowing the night comes, fully aware that HE is OUR LIVING DAWN as he whispers an ancient promise carried upon the wings of the wind, swift as lightning through the folds and fathoms of realms unseen … The dove coos as the warrior bride’s eyes brings into focus the object that seemingly calls to her, up there perched on the wet branches of the tree, she is resting beneath. AN IMPRESSION is drawn up from her spirit, with in. Words form but she knows they are not her own, she hears His voice echoed from, both, with in and above- in the fluttering of the dove, “Beloved”, she hears HIM say, “Sorrow may endure for the night, but, JOY will greet you in the MORNING !”
Until that day SHE is coming to find YOU in HIS name, to bring little mornings of day spring to the wounded of the earth, reminding them: ALL WE LIKE SHEEP HAVE GONE ASTRAY, we have gone our own way. But, HE WAS WOUNDED, for our transgressions, He was BRUISED BEARING OUR iniquities, [those bent for failure at birth] The chastisement of our peace was UPON HIM by whose stripes we were healed.
Who is this appearing Like the dawn? Beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun, as an army with banners. Solomon’s Song 6:10
