I would like to share a vision I received during worship last week. I saw the heavens open; it appeared as if double doors got folded back and a beam of golden light shone down through that open door. I saw it going all over the earth like the powerful beam of a searchlight, and I heard the following scripture spoken:
2Ch 16:9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are blameless toward Him.
And I knew Heaven was looking for these ones who had completed their preparation and had undivided focus, looking only at the Bridegroom. In the above scripture, the words ‘show himself strong’ can be translated as ‘to take firm hold of’ and ‘blameless’ in Hebrew also means ‘perfect, complete, wholly toward’. So the eyes of the Lord are going forth to take firm hold of those whose hearts are completely ready and focussed toward Him and His purposes.
Then my attention was drawn to one whom had been discovered to be in such a condition and the beam of light narrowed and concentrated into a laser beam and ignited that one’s heart into a small flame ( I could see that there were others scattered here and there undergoing the same process, but apart from this the earth seemed cloaked in twilight). Then I saw the wind begin to blow around that person and increase in strength, until it became a whirlwind around the person and this fanned the flame into a raging fire. I somehow knew that person was being made a messenger of fire and I heard the phrase ‘turned into fragrance by fire’. I knew from previous study that this phrase was the meaning of the Hebrew word ‘qatar’ (H6999), which also means ‘to smoke, to kindle or to offer incense’. What I saw taking place was the baptism of fire upon a person whose life was surrendered as a living sacrifice and prayer at the golden altar of incense.
In like manner, this depicts the fire from Heaven consuming the sacrifice of Elijah; an OT type of the Spirit of Elijah who has been preparing the Bride in the evening watch, as darkness begins to fall on the earth. The fire fell to confirm that Elijah was God’s servant and had done all according to His word and express instruction. Likewise, the fire kindled upon the one whose heart had been found to be fully His indicates that this person is the servant of the Lord and has been obedient to everything which Heaven has instructed them to do. Elijah had his prepared sacrifice drenched with 12 jars of water. So this one who is ignited with fire from heaven has a heart saturated with the water of the Word. They are a living sacrifice, part of the company of people mentioned in Psalm 110 who offer themselves willingly in the day of His power. They surrender wholeheartedly; they are those whose hearts are perfect toward Him, who are completely His. And as the fire from Heaven consumed Elijah’s sacrifice, they are consumed by the fire from His eyes of fire and the fragrance of this offering rises toward Heaven as a beautiful fragrance, acceptable to God.
The next scene I was shown was a silver river of shining molten metal snaking very fast, flowing between the mountains like a heat-seeking missile. It seemed to know exactly where it was going and was hastening to its appointment, moving with an urgency to complete Heaven’s purposes. I observed that, strangely, the consumed sacrifice had somehow turned into a hollow shell which served as a mold, which rapidly became lined with thick molten silver. I glimpsed the source of the silver river – it was being poured out of heaven in order to line the mold, raining down into the worshiping, smoking sacrifice and ultimately forming a heavy silver chalice, exquisitely engraved on the outside and studded with gems around the rim.
I then heard the scripture spoken, “You are my portion and my cup” (Psalm 16:15), which David the psalmist wrote and which we, as the Bride, say to our Beloved Bridegroom, as we drink of the riches hidden in Christ. But then I saw the Lord take up this silver chalice and begin to drink and He quoted the same scripture, saying to the Bride, “you are My portion and My cup” and He drank of her worship. It was like watching a fulfillment and manifestation of the scripture where the Bride says, “My Beloved is Mine and I am His”. First, we surrender fully to Him and then He openly declares we are His precious possession. A scripture was brought to mind:
Son 5:1 I have come into My garden, My sister, My spouse; I have gathered My myrrh with My spice. I have eaten My honeycomb with My honey; I have drunk My wine with My milk. Eat and drink, O friends; yea, drink fully, beloved ones.
In the Amplified version, it says it like this – “Now I know you are Mine, irrevocably Mine!” It seems from this verse that the cup contains both wine and milk; the pure milk of the Word and the water of the Word turned to wine on the third day of the feast; and once the Bridegroom has drunk of the firstfruits of what the silver chalice holds, His beloved ones are encouraged to drink and eat from this garden as well. Just as the water turned to wine at Cana was first offered to the governor of the feast and, when approved, was then released for the rest of the guests to drink, so too in Songs 5:1 there is a shadow of this truth depicted, as friends and beloved ones are encouraged to drink once the Bridegroom has tasted what the heart of His Bride contains. I see in this, endtime silver vessels, messengers of fire, released and offering the best wine which has been reserved ‘til the last time. They will bring forth previously unknown revelation, meat hidden and stored up for consumption amongst those who have been brought to the kingdom for such a time as this. It will be undergirded by the pure milk of the Word and fully authentic and of superior quality.
After this, I was shown the origin and top of the search beam in the Heavens. There I saw ribbons of light in the seven colors of the rainbow being poured into that solid wide light ray; they were mingling and joining to form that golden beam, and I knew that the seven colors of light I had witnessed were the seven Spirits of God which are described in Isaiah 11. I understood that the baptism of fire which I witnessed involved the outpouring of these same seven Spirits upon those whose hearts were fully His. Therefore the revelation truth they offer as the best wine will be under the anointing and illumination of these seven Spirits.
I was suddenly reminded of a mini vision I had at the beginning of the worship session. I had seen an outpouring out of Heaven onto the earth of various colored flames of fiery burning coals. They did not look transparent and ethereal as flames usually do but seemed to contain great substance. At the time I had thought of the scripture in Revelation 8, where much incense is added to the prayers by the angel and then a censer of fiery coals is cast upon the earth. So I quickly looked up the scripture:
Rev 8:3 And another angel came and stood over the altar. He had a golden censer, and he was given very much incense, that he might mingle it with the prayers of all the people of God (the saints) upon the golden altar before the throne.
I asked in my heart where the angel had got the ‘much incense’ because it seemed to be a separate substance to the prayers of all the people of God – and immediately I was brought back to the scripture in Songs 5:1 – ‘I have come into My garden, My sister, My spouse; I have gathered My myrrh with My spice’. I knew in a flash of understanding that the large amount of incense had been gathered from His ‘spouse’, from the hearts of those who were fully prepared; those who had been found by the seven eyes of the Lord to be completely His. It is from this Bridal Company that the fragrant incense is sourced and mingled with the prayers of all the saints waiting for answers. This bowl of prayers is upon the golden altar, but the answers cannot be released until the ‘much incense is gathered and this cannot occur until those who offer themselves willingly are completely ready.
Rev 8:4 And the smoke of the incense (the perfume) arose in the presence of God, with the prayers of the people of God (the saints), from the hand of the angel. Rev 8:5 So the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and cast it upon the earth. Then there followed peals of thunder and loud rumblings and blasts and voices, and flashes of lightning and an earthquake.
It is only as the smoke of this incense rises as a pleasing fragrance before God that the angel is released to cast the censer of fire upon the earth. And the results are earthshaking! What follows is a release of sound or ‘voices’ and lightning flashes and thunder. As the Bride’s preparation is complete and the fiery baptism occurs, it ushers in a release of ‘voices’; like John who was a voice crying in the wilderness to prepare the way of the Lord, so too these ‘voices’ or messengers are sent forth all over the earth to bring in the final harvest. These messengers of fire bring lightning or flashes of revelation that light up people’s understanding, where minds have previously been darkened. The entrance of His Word brings light.
Thunder always follows lightning. Thunder is light converted to sound. The Greek word for ‘thunder’ also means ‘roar’. So the revelation released by these messengers of fire ushers in the roar of the Lion of Judah and a mighty earthquake is triggered. Prison walls shake and chains fall off and those trapped in darkness are brought forth to freedom. There is a mighty sound and light bombardment upon the bastions of the enemy and prison walls come tumbling down. Ancient rusty gates spring open. Once again, a corporate voice will be heard in unison all over the earth, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me … to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison…”
The turning into fragrance by fire of the incense gathered from the Bridal hearts brings release to the whole Body, whose prayers have been waiting for answers. Those of you who have been in fires heated seven times hotter have endured it for the purpose of the Word you carry within your hearts. The true words of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in the furnace of the earth, purified seven times. This speaks of seven cycles of cleansing and refining; seven testings to achieve and certify authenticity and purity. You are the real deal!
Many imposters and charlatans have deceived and used and abused God’s people and brought the church into disrepute in the earth but now the vessels hallmarked by Heaven, sealed with His seal, are to be released. The fire seven times hotter has been for the purpose of removing the dross from our hearts, so that only the pure silver of the Word remains – and it is this pure Word that provides the silver river for the forming of the chalice. Nothing you have been through has been without purpose. Nothing you have suffered is of no avail. Heaven has needed pure silver vessels for this endtime work. And you are of those who offer themselves willingly in the day of His power. From the womb of the morning will spring forth His holy vessels, scattered like dew all over the earth. Hear His roar, “Behold My beloved sons and daughters, in whom I am well pleased! Hear them!”
