I heard the Lord say, “Tell My people to suit up for the voyage!” I had such an excitement in my spirit as I heard these words. I knew God was preparing His people for new assignments that would take them into new territory and levels in the spirit. There was such an expectancy for what was to come. He is telling His people that the time of launching to new heights is near.
The Lord then gave me a vision of His people putting on astronaut suits preparing to be launched from their space rocket. They were getting ready for their voyage to new heights and places. They were going to go to places they had not been before. It was important for them to be dressed appropriately for the voyage ahead. They were dressed in space suits which represented the fact they were going to be moving in the things of the spirit. When they were dressed they went to Jesus and He handed them their flight orders. These were details of where they were going and the path they were to take once they were launched from their space rocket. These were their assignments from the Lord. They went directly to Jesus for their flight plans as they followed only His plans and purposes for them. They knew Jesus was the one sending them on the voyage and they were secure in going wherever He sent them as they were secure in their relationship with Him. They didn’t know the exact details of the voyage ahead and what it would bring but they were confident in the flight plan they had been given and that Jesus had prepared the plan specifically for them.
I then saw the people board their space rocket which was positioned on a launch pad. I knew the launch pad had been previously prepared for this time. The launch pad represented the foundation that had been prepared. It represented their relationship with Jesus and their understanding of who He was and who they were in Him. It represented the past seasons where they had grown spiritually and where the Lord had prepared them for the future plans He had for them. It represented a time where they had been refined and pruned. It represented a time where they had developed their spiritual gifts. The launch pad was built on their intimacy and relationship with the Lord.
The Lord showed me that the people had been on previous test missions in preparation for the launch that was coming. The test missions were smaller space missions that went for shorter distances and duration. As the people were positioned in the rocket they entered the flight path they had been given into the controls in the rocket and they prepared themselves for the launch. I then saw Jesus and there was such excitement in His eyes as He knew what lay ahead for the people and He knew many had been waiting for this time of launching. Jesus then hit a large ‘go’ button on a control pad He was holding. Jesus was the one who controlled the timing of their launch. At the perfect time, the ‘go’ button was pressed. The rocket blasted into the sky with great speed and precision on the path that had been set. The rocket was launched in line with the flight plan that had been entered. I noticed the huge flames of fire that were coming from the engines and I knew this represented the power of the Holy Spirit. The voyage the person was on was powered by the Holy Spirit.
I believe the Lord is saying that many people have been refined and prepared for the upcoming time of acceleration into the plans and purposes the Lord has for them which will take them into new territory and new levels in the spirit. They have been tested, prepared and refined for this time. They have been pruned to bear more fruit. John 15:1-3 (NASB) – “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.” They are secure in their relationship with Jesus and they know their identity in Him. They know God has plans for them and he is ordering their steps. Jeremiah 29:11 (NASB) – For I know the plans that I have for you declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. They have waited on the Lord, trusting in Him and His perfect timing, knowing He is faithful and is working all things together for their good. Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NASB) – There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven.
The time of preparation has brought people to their time of launching. At the perfect time the Lord is going to launch His people into the new plans He has for them. There will be rapid growth and rapid advancement as they are powered by the Holy Spirit and they follow the path Jesus has for them. To be ready (and suited up for the voyage) you must stay surrendered to Him, press deeper into intimacy with Him and be obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit. It will be important to see with heavenly perspective and align yourself with the truth of who God is and who you are in Him and not allow fear, doubt or the lies of the enemy to delay your launch. The Lord is saying to get ready as He is going to launch and propel you to new heights and the launch time is near!
