Waiting in the Wings

For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

“Warrior Watchman” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

{vision} I saw myself wearing a unique necklace. The pendant was designed like a gyroscope, yet instead of a “wheel within a “wheel,” there was a “coin within a coin.” One coin face had a lion’s head and another that of a man. I had the sense that the other coin faces mirrored the rest of the four living creatures connected to the throne of God, the eagle and the ox (Ezekiel 1, Revelation 4).

Though this vision came to me in a quick flash, many things were downloaded to my spirit all at once. God has been speaking to me a lot about living from the place of our authority in Him. According to Ephesians 2:6, we are seated with Christ in heavenly places. I can be honest and say that, although I know this truth with my mind, it is a much different thing to know it in my bones and feel secure in that knowledge. Doubt, fear, and insecurities can creep in and cause a child of God to feel weak and worthless. Therefore, I knew this vision of the necklace was meant to give me further revelation about our kingly authority in Christ.

The necklace in my vision references the throne of God on several levels. Of course, “the wheel within wheel” motif points directly to the throne of God (Ezekiel 1:15-21). The “faces” of the coin allude to the presence of God because the word for “presence” in Hebrew is paniym (H6440), which can be translated as “faces.” For me, the lion is symbolic of kingly authority, while the head of a man echoes the same theme since, in Hebraic thought, the head is associated with leadership (think of the term “head of state”).

I could sense that the fact that the pendant looked like a gyroscope also had further significance. When I looked up the purpose of a gyroscope, the words were strongly highlighted to me, “a device used for measuring or maintaining orientation and angular velocity.” I sensed that God wanted to speak to me about being secure in my position (seat of authority) in Christ as I moved forward in what He had called me to do. If ever I found myself out of alignment with Him, the revelation He was bringing was meant to help me get back on track.

Mighty One of God

Destroying Strongholds” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

{vision} I saw a giant reaching into a storm, taking a bolt of lightning, and throwing it to the ground. Next, I saw a child of God in the same place, climbing up on a ladder and doing the same thing as the giant—taking a bolt of lighting and throwing it to the ground.

Lighting can represent power and authority. All power and authority ultimately belong to God, but He anoints His vessels to enforce His will. This particular anointing is known as the Spirit of Might (Isaiah 11:2).

Miracle-working power and authority fall under this anointing. It was demonstrated most often by those who were called “mighty ones” or, in Hebrew, gibborim. In Hebrew, “gibbor” speaks of a strong, mighty, and valiant person. The judges of Israel were gibborim and were supernaturally empowered to enforce God’s will in the earth.

Today, the children of God have the same call, tasked with overriding the authority of the enemy and anything contrary to the will of God. As a child of God, you are an emissary of El Gibhor—Mighty God—an agent sent to act on His behalf. Just like a police officer is a delegated authority of the law (and who carries a “shield” or badge representing that authority), in the same way you are called to uphold God’s Word or law. You are both a guardian of God’s people and a servant of the Most High. Keep your ears dedicated to hearing and obeying the voice of El Gibhor and be unapologetic when it comes to guarding His ways.

That Men May Marvel

“Shine Unafraid” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Matthew 15:31 (TPT) And the crowds marveled with rapture and amazement, astounded over the things they were witnessing with their own eyes! The lame were walking, the mute were speaking, the crippled were made well, and the blind could see. For three days everyone celebrated the miracles as they exalted and praised the God of Israel!

Deep intimacy with God is guaranteed to release the depths of our anointing in the Holy Spirit. We become like Moses who soaked in God’s presence upon Mount Sinai, and whose deep intimacy caused his face to shine with the glory. Yet very much like Moses, those who reach this kind of depth with God can often struggle with stepping out into the spotlight to show the world how God has transformed them. This kind of person is what the Jewish people call a tzaddik—a righteous one. A tzaddik is quite humble yet so deep in the flow of the Spirit that they become the very extension of God. Miracles abound in their midst and the kingdom of heaven is seen upon the earth. Of course, Yeshua our Messiah, became the chief tzaddik, shining with God’s love and glory that all might see.

The Scriptures say that the crowds that gathered around Yeshua marveled at the works He performed. He stepped into the spotlight, became an extension of the Father in heaven, and challenged what humanity thought to be possible. Not only did great miracles occur, but a remnant believed through the Messiah; they opened their hearts to also become extensions of the Father and received miracle-working power. This is because when the kingdom of heaven (the power of God) is seen, it makes room for the kingdom of heaven to be received in the hearts of humanity.

Therefore, it is well worth the risk to cast off fear and insecurity in order to “arise and shine.” Take what God has cultivated within you in the secret place and let it be seen before men. Perhaps, God has given you prophetic insight, scriptural revelation, emotional healing, or unique wisdom for walking through life. Or perhaps, you have experienced personal miracles and know that God is calling you to become a catalyst for miracles with others. Therefore, arise and shine! Allow God’s light to be seen upon you! Do so that men may marvel in who our God is, and that the kingdom of heaven may be received upon earth.

Isaiah 60:1 (VOICE) Arise, shine, for your light has broken through! The Eternal One’s brilliance has dawned upon you.
