This morning, as I sat with the Lord, I saw and heard a great shofar blowing. And I watched as doves were released from its mouth. Each carried a small branch in their beaks and they were flying swiftly and purposefully, like they knew their destinations. All other birds fell silent as the sound of the shofar cut through the atmosphere. I saw the doves were being carried by the sound waves of the shofar; they were not flapping their wings but you couldn’t say they were gliding because they were flying like bullets with their wings spread out. And I saw an archery board with the rings of the target, and superimposed on it was a map of the world. And I watched as the doves plunged into their appointed places of penetration like darts out of a blow gun. As they did so, I zoomed in and saw that each dove plunged its branch into the ground like a stake, claiming the ground as the land of their inheritance, as they shouted victoriously. And the earth shook as they did so. I saw that this simultaneous striking of the stakes caused the whole globe to shudder. And each branch looked like a flag as it penetrated the ground. Each flag had the words ‘for the kingdom’, ‘for the kingdom’. And the doves could not see each other as they were not within visual distance of each other, but as they lifted and then plunged in the kingdom stakes, I knew they had a knowing that they moved in unison with others, led by the Spirit of God.
Under the earth, I saw demons cringing and covering their ears, trying to escape the sound which the stakes made as they were driven into the ground. Then I saw a great tree, a very ancient tree, fall to the ground and lie prostrate. There had been no tangible storm or wind to cause this fall. But it seems the energy of the penetrating stakes had sent shock waves through the ground and struck the roots of the tree. And underneath the base of the great tree, among the roots, I saw a name carved – ‘Ba’al’. Then the Lord showed me the tree falling again. And I saw that as it hit the ground, the whole earth shuddered. And I saw people were running to and fro, like ants do when their nest is uncovered and exposed.
Then I saw again the branches, or stakes containing scrolls, that had been planted in different places in the earth, dotted all over like land claims. I watched as they took root supernaturally quickly, becoming great trees in a very short time. And many birds came to shelter in their branches. And I saw the land upon which each tree was planted had definite boundaries. And angels were posted at each corner with their swords ready to protect these kingdom plantings.
Then I saw a long trail of people, very sorrowful and weary, with ragged clothes, heads down, just putting one foot in front of the other – men and women and children. And they formed a long line which reminded me of pictures I have seen of the Trail of Tears and the forced evictions of the Native American tribes, but these people were all tribes and ethnicities. And as they walked, I saw their prayers ascending to heaven like trails of smoke. They were calling out for guidance and help from God in Heaven as all other sources of help has been removed. And I watched as they streamed onto the measured land of Kingdom purposes and came to the great trees that had grown up so quickly. And they leaned against the trunks and embraced the trees in gratitude. And some lay down and slept under the shade of the branches. And the angels moved among them, holding out cups of water and plates of food. And the little ones were tucked up under blankets.
Then the Lord showed me again the mouth of the great shofar which had been blown. And inside, I saw many nests on its interior walls, almost like nests hidden in the cleft of a rock cliff. I saw that these doves had been dwelling in the place of the sound of the shofar; in the place of God’s flowing breath. And they had each allowed the sound to penetrate to the marrow of their bones. As they did so over a long season, individual scrolls had begun to form in each nest; from the innermost roll of the parchment, moving and forming outwards to the outer edges. As the scrolls materialized, the doves were watching them intently, with extreme focus – almost as if the contents of the scrolls were being absorbed into their hearts. Yet all the while, they were sitting still, quiet, seeing what God was revealing to them. Listening. Watching. Waiting. And when each scroll was fully formed, it became a branch, or a small twig with the fresh green leaf. At this point, the doves arose and stood ready on the edges of their nests. Each had taken their individual branch in their beaks and were preparing to fly. And as they stood ready, the mighty blast of sound rushed through the chambers of the shofar. It ejected them like cannonballs sent to their destinations. And I knew that those doves had to know the time to arise, the time to stand with the scroll branches. If they had no understanding of the times, the blast of the shofar, like the starting gun of a race, would catch them unawares and unprepared. And I knew that in all I had seen on this day, the Lord had showed me the precise Heavenly orchestration of Kingdom purposes and, amidst judgement falling on idols and the uncovering of wickedness, some of the preparations and the planting and building of end-time refuges for the time of great tribulation.
Isa 4:5 And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defence of divine love and protection). Isa 4:6 And there shall be a pavilion for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and a shelter from storm and from rain.
Isa 32:1 BEHOLD, A King will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule with justice. Isa 32:2 And each one of them shall be like a hiding place from the wind and a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade of a great rock in a weary land [to those who turn to them].
Jdg 2:13 And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth. Jdg 2:14 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies.
Luk 13:18 This led Him to say, What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? Luk 13:19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his own garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the wild birds found shelter and roosted and nested in its branches.
Isa 60:21 Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.
Eze 17:22 Thus says the Lord God: I Myself will take a twig from the lofty top of the cedar and will set it out; I will crop off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one and will plant it upon a mountain high and exalted. Eze 17:23 On the mountain height of Israel will I plant it, that it may bring forth boughs and bear fruit and be a noble cedar, and under it shall dwell all birds of every feather; in the shade of its branches they shall nestle and find rest. Eze 17:24 And all the trees of the field shall know (understand and realize) that I the Lord have brought low the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree flourish. I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it.
