I have had the same encounter with the Lord three times over the last few months and I now feel a liberty to release what the Lord has shown me. Each time the Lord has shown me a great heavenly vault. There is an invitation from the Lord ‘to come up higher’ in order to have access to the vault. As I approach the vault the golden door of the vault opens before me and inside there are many, many scrolls and I know these scrolls contain revelation on the times and seasons of God that are ahead; God’s end time plans. The scrolls contain deeper revelation and deeper truths from the word of God and mysteries of the kingdom of God. Some scrolls contain revelation on the destiny of nations. Some of these I can see are very old and have been kept for this hour and season. The invitation from the Lord is a corporate one and is being extended to those who ‘walk with the Lord’. I believe as God’s end time plan is accelerating, a company of those who ‘walk with the Lord’ will arise and be given access to increased revelation which they will release to the body of Christ on the leading of the Spirit. They will release revelation on the times and seasons of God and the strategy for advancement of the Kingdom as the Lord prepares His bride for His return.
Daniel 9 season -
The Lord has repeatedly spoken to me about the body of Christ being in a Daniel 9 season. By this I mean that the Lord is alerting His people that we have entered the fulfilment of time for many of the promises and prophetic words He has spoken to come to pass. In particular this refers to regions and nations. The Lord has also shown me we are in a time of convergence where many promises will come to pass at the same time as we are in a time of acceleration of His plans and purposes. The Lord is looking for those who will awaken to the hour and partner with Him.
In Daniel chapter 9 we see an example of what happens when we discern the time of God, hear the word of the Lord and intercede for it to come to pass. Daniel read the word of the Lord from Jeremiah the prophet that there would be seventy years for the completion of the desolation of Jerusalem after which time the city would be rebuilt. As the seventy years had come, Daniel sought the Lord and interceded for Israel and the city of Jerusalem to be restored. God moved on Daniel’s intercession as Daniel took hold of the word of the Lord and interceded for it to come to pass.
In a vision the Lord showed me other people entering the heavenly vault I had seen in my encounters and certain scrolls were radiating with light and were highlighted to them. The people were selecting these scrolls from the shelves of the vault and reading them. Sometimes multiple scrolls were released to the people at one time and I knew the Lord was showing me much revelation will be given and He was confirming His word on convergence, where many promises and plans will be released and come to pass at one time.
Those who walk with the Lord like Enoch –
Enoch is the seventh generation from Adam and I believe that as we approach the seventh day in the calendar of God’s plan, as God’s end time plan accelerates, a company of those who ‘walk with the Lord’ will arise.
Genesis 5:22 (NKJV) – Enoch walked with God three hundred years, and had sons and daughters.
The Lord revealed to me some attributes which explain those who will walk with Him –
* They will walk in partnership with God -
It was always God’s intention to ‘walk’ with us meaning an intimate relationship. In Genesis 3:8 it tells us God walked in the garden with Adam and Eve. God is looking for walking partners who will walk so closely with Him and partner with Him in His plans for the time ahead as we prepare for His return. To walk with God you are in agreement and alignment with Him. Enoch walked with God for 300 years. I believe 300 is a number that represents divine fullness (one hundred is a number of full harvest/ full blessing and three is the number representing the trinity). Those who walk with God will receive the full blessing of intimate relationship with God and access to the heavenly vault of revelation as God will share His plans with those He trusts. They will have an intimate relationship with each member of the trinity and will walk in unison with God.
Amos 3:3 (NKJV) – Can two walk together unless they are agreed?
* They will have intimate communion with God -
Enoch sought after God until he learned how to commune with God at a deep level. The fellowship that Enoch enjoyed with God was an ongoing way of life. His walk was not a run, a jump, a leap, a sprint, but a steady and constant walk that continued for 300 years. His heart was in harmony with God's will. Those who pursue to walk with God will draw near to Him. Due to their intimate relationship with God and being led by the Spirit, they will only move on the impulses of the Spirit and in line with the heart of the Father.
Romans 8:14 (TPT) – The mature children of God are only those who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit.
James 4:7 (NKJV) – Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
* They will operate in the supernatural -
They will walk in the supernatural in a way we have not seen before. This will include heavenly encounters and great revelation on the times ahead. The word ‘walk’ in the Hebrew is the word ‘halak’ which means to walk up and down which can also be a picture of moving between the heavenly and earthly realms. Enoch's example continues to witness to all generations of the opportunity we have to grow near to God. Those who walk with God will have great spiritual discernment and will operate in the supernatural in unprecedented ways.
John 14:12 (NKJV) – “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”
* They will walk in holiness -
Those who walk with God will have pure hearts and a desire to walk in His ways. We go higher in the things of God (we ascend) as we lay down our own agendas and take up God’s agenda and ways. Enoch comes from the Hebrew name חֲנוֹך (Chanokh) meaning ‘dedicated’. Those who walk with God will be fully surrendered and dedicated to Him. If there are any areas of our lives that we have not surrendered to the Lord these can be barriers to deeper intimacy so we need to search our hearts and surrender any unforgiveness, bitterness, discouragement or areas that need healing. Those who walk with God will live in the world but will not conform to it as they will live to glory God alone.
Psalm 24:3 (NKJV) – Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart.
I John 2:15 (NKJV) - Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
* They will be given deep revelation -
We are in a revelation 4:1 season and God will unfold the secrets of His kingdom and the things to come to those who walk with Him. Those who walk with God will also have deeper revelation of scriptures revealed to them through the spirit of wisdom and revelation. Enoch's heart was focused on eternal treasures - His mind, his heart, his conversation, were on heavenly realities. Likewise those who walk with God will have heavenly perspective.
Revelation 4:1 (NKJV) – After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”
2 Corinthians 4:18 (NKJV) – while we do not look at the things which are seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Ephesians 1:17 (NKJV) – that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.
* They will have great faith -
Those who walk with God will have great faith. Enoch is one of the people listed in Hebrews 11, the chapter outlining biblical people of great faith, and we are told from scripture that Enoch’s faith pleased God. It is the will of God that we learn to walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord and such living can only be developed by faith. Those who walk with God will have great faith in God as they will have an intimate knowledge of who He is.
Hebrews 11:5-6 (NKJV) – By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
Colossians 1:10 (NKJV) – that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
* They will obediently release what the Lord reveals -
God gave Enoch a message to deliver to the people of his day. We know of this because Enoch’s prophetic words are recorded in the book of Jude (Jude 1:14-15). Just as Enoch prophesied and released revelation he had been given so too these people who walk with God will be a voice for God and release revelation with wisdom. They will proclaim the word of the Lord and prepare the body of Christ for the return of Jesus. They will walk in God’s will and according to His word and the leading of the Spirit. They will obediently release what they have been given at the time the Lord has them release His message. They will walk in the fear of God instead of the fear of man. They will be like trumpets that herald God’s message and God will increase their area of influence so His message will be heard by many.
May we take up the Lord’s invitation to ‘come up higher’ and to ‘walk’ with Him. As the Lord prepares His bride for His return may we discern His times and seasons and release revelation we are given to advance His kingdom.
