Last Thursday I shared a vision in which I saw that the dragon has been taken captive. I originally saw that vision while in prayer on Monday. I sat with it until the Thursday to make sure I understood it and that I was sure it was from God.
Then on Thursday night I had a dream. Again I sat with it until this morning, Monday morning, and I finally understand the meaning of the dream and I’m sure its from God.
In the dream I was in a cable car.
The cable car went up to and past the US White House, past on the right hand side of it. As the cable car went past it, behind it there was another building. It looked a lot like the White House, but it was bigger, more powerful, wider, taller, more imposing.
But the most amazing feature of this second White House building was that the front of that second building was a Lions face! ALMOST ALL of the front of this very large building had a Lions face protruding out – in 3D!
The Lion was looking slightly down at the White House which was in front of Him but slightly below.
The Lion imagery is Jesus Christ. I knew that right away. And I knew that this was a different government, external to the existing White House.
What I couldn’t tell was… what does it mean that the Lion is gazing at the existing White House which is in front of Him? I couldn’t make out any emotions on the Lion’s face.
Then this morning, just a while ago, the understanding came to me. “The ruling authority is now the Lamb”. The sense I have is that the GLOBAL ruling authority is Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit.
As I write this the following scripture comes to mind
Revelation 11:15-17 AMP The seventh angel then blew [his] trumpet, and there were mighty voices in heaven, shouting, The dominion (kingdom, sovereignty, rule) of the world has now come into the possession and become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ (the Messiah), and He shall reign forever and ever (for the eternities of the eternities)! Then the twenty-four elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin], who sit on their thrones before God, prostrated themselves before Him and worshiped, Exclaiming, To You we give thanks, Lord God Omnipotent, [the One] Who is and [ever] was, for assuming the high sovereignty and the great power that are Yours and for beginning to reign.
You can see from those verses that there is a moment in time when what happened on the cross (all authority in Heaven and on Earth has been given to Me – Jesus Christ) becomes manifest.
It is manifesting now. The spiritual change will have an Earthly impact which will be visible in due course. Thank You Jesus Christ!
Meanwhile what should we be doing?
There is a repeat of the same scripture in the very next chapter 12…
Revelation 12:10-11 AMP Then I heard a strong (loud) voice in heaven, saying, Now it has come–the salvation and the power and the kingdom (the dominion, the reign) of our God, and the power (the sovereignty, the authority) of His Christ (the Messiah); for the accuser of our brethren, he who keeps bringing before our God charges against them day and night, has been cast out! And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].
Rev 12 is a summary of the whole story… from the rebellion in Heaven through to the final end where He reigns and we (His bride) overcomes the enemy… “And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony”
Rev 11 and Rev 12 both end in the same way… Jesus Christ takes dominion… but Rev 12 clarifies our role in the dramatic ending… we overcome!
We (as His bride) have our role to play in this massive novel, this cosmic romance, this eternal love story.
Like a warrior princess we overcome the enemy by believing our Husband-to-be. Our faith in His sacrifice is our shield. And in our mouth is a sword… which is scripture… which we speak over situations.
