5 June 2016 - On April 12, 2014 I dreamed I was in a boarding school for African girls. I remember it was painted a beautiful blue inside and I had just read a story to one girl and put her to bed. Then a group of gunmen came in and opened fired, killing many. I was running all over and then grabbed a few girls and went to hide until it was over.
On April 14, 2014 the terrorist organization boko haram descended upon a Nigerian government school and kidnapped more than 250 Christian school girls. Holy Spirit was giving me a head's up to pray.
On the 2-year anniversary this year my spirit was stirred to take up this intercessory assignment again and I invited others to come alongside me. I've shared before that when you take an assignment from God there's a reward waiting for you at completion; and still only one other person has committed to praying for these young ladies with me.
SIDE NOTE: I've been encountering the spirit of jealousy toward me from at least two sources recently. I'm the least of these. I have nothing ... I am nothing, so I don't get it. All I have is a covenant with The Godhead so anything I get or do is a result of that. I'm telling you all now, and I've shared this multiple times and places before - if you want what I have, say YES to God's assignments. It's really simple. Put the energy it takes to be jealous into serving Him and you'll surpass me 'cause I don't do that much.
On tonight's prayer call Ruach haKodesh was fully present. I heard the following as recorded in my journal at 5:12 p.m.:
Your prayers are energizing the Hosts of Heaven. It's only a matter of time before you hear that I've released the key and turned the lock to free those captives.
Praise the Name of The Lord! When I heard that I loosed angelic hosts to go tap and stir intercessors and not allow them to rest until they began to cry out for those girls' deliverance. If you're an intercessor and have felt the desire to pray, don't ignore it. Stop reading this and pray as if those were your children trapped in the bondage of Egypt.
Then my prayer partner texted and said she'd continue to worship after the call (I did, too), and she had a vision of an angel leading the girls out of the camp in a line. She continued to worship and said she believed something happened today (I do, too!), that she didn't know what exactly but she felt the shift.
Hallelujah! God is shifting all things and all people in this season. If you can't recognize it or aren't being shifted I'm so sorry ... and I loose revelation of God's times and seasons into your life and household in fullness right now in Yeshua's name.
I just remembered I've been singing all day, "Lord, I want You to move me ... " I pray you know and love Him enough to allow Him to move and shift you so that you can prevail in the days ahead.
