The Heavy Weight Of Glory Vision 7-22-12
The Heavy Weight of Glory Vision 07-22-12
During the worship time of our conference, I saw a vision of the earth. It was suspended in the heavens and a great angel stood on it and he was about 3 times the height of the earth. He had a white tunic on, and golden armor on over that, and he had golden skin, and blonde hair, and a golden sword. He had both hands on his sword and had his arms semi-raised with the point of the tip of the sword pointed upwards over his head. He stood looking at me and also was waiting for something. Then I saw him look upwards, and as he did, my eyes followed his gaze too. I saw something descending. It was as wide as the heavens in my view, and was descending slowly. It was as if something was lowering that looked like a bulging fabric or membrane. It got heavier and heavier and as it did it came down lower and lower till it had hung just above the angel with his sword drawn. It looked like a huge bag that was about to burst upon the angel at any moment, but the angel was not concerned at all. He just stood at attention and waited.
Then, as if on cue, he raised the sword till the tip touched the heavy material and he suddenly thrust it through with his sword with a great cry. Then it split at the swords penetration point and ripped all the way across from the very weight of the bulge. The fabric released a deluge of golden liquid that poured down over the angel violently and then down over the earth. The angel did not mind, but stayed at attention as it ran down him and onto the earth. The deluge of golden liquid was thick and had a strong fragrance. It was so powerful that as it touched the earth itself, the earth shook and was moved by it's arrival. The oil quickly covered the earth in it's flow. When all of the golden oil was poured out from the heavy laden fabric, the fabric then rose back up to heaven. The angel then nodded and lowered his hands and sword. He smiled and then he was gone. The earth was covered in the Glory of the Lord and was shaking and moving underneath the oil. -The vision ended.
2 Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. KJV
AMP: 17 For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!],
ESV: 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,
NLT: 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!
YLT: 17 for the momentary light matter of our tribulation, more and more exceedingly an age-during weight of glory doth work out for us

Psalms 133:1 BEHOLD, HOW good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious (oil) ointment poured on the head, that ran down on the beard, even the beard of Aaron [the first high priest], that came down upon the collar and skirts of his garments [consecrating the whole body]. 3 It is like the dew of [lofty] Mount Hermon and the dew that comes on the hills of Zion; for there the Lord has commanded the blessing, even life forevermore [upon the high and the lowly].
Proverbs 19:12 The king's wrath is as terrifying as the roaring of a lion, but his favor is as [refreshing as] dew (oil) upon the grass.

Psalms 110:3 Your people will offer themselves willingly in the day of Your power, in the beauty of holiness and in holy array out of the womb of the morning; to You [will spring forth] Your young men, who are as the dew.
Then I found Elaine's word from 7-14-12:
Jesus told a parable about ten virgins. Five of them were wise and kept oil in their lamps and the other five were foolish because they didn't continually refill their lamps with oil each time it ran out. They were wearied from waiting for their bridegroom to come. Oil speaks as a metaphor of the Holy Spirit. Many Christians are getting tired of waiting because they don't sense God moving in their lives. They have been waiting for God to visit them once again but not experiencing this. Some even feel as if the glory has departed (Ichabod) from their lives. Jesus wants you to know that He did not leave you and He wants to release His fresh oil back into your life.
The Lord would say to you, come unto Me and I will release My glory once again. I will anoint those dry areas with My fresh oil. Allow Me to lubricate that which has become dry and brittle. Allow Me to breathe upon and resuscitate those things in your life that have deceased. Don't be disheartened because these things will come back to life as I pour My anointing into them. I will replenish those areas that have been dehydrated and desolate and revive the areas that have been barren. Throw off the weight of discouragement. Surely I will move once again in a mighty way in your midst. This dry spell will cease and My glory will bring refreshing upon you and wash away all burdens. I will visit you in your quiet time. I will release My glory in your prayer time. I will release revelation in your study time.
You have been standing on My word, believing for something for a long time. Don't give up now. You have been faithful through difficult times, and stood steadfast through the fiery trials. Don't retreat, for I am right at the door. Don't be disillusioned to believe the lies of the enemy. You will come back stronger than you were before. Surrender yourself to Me and allow Me to fill you once again. Do not be afraid of the darkness, for you will surely see My Glory accelerate beyond what you have ever known. Do not become stagnant but trust Me and know that I will do as I promised. As you submit yourselves to Me once again, you will no longer suffer from this spiritual famine, but you will be filled to overflowing with fresh oil says the Lord.
There is desirable treasure, and oil in the dwelling of the wise, but a foolish man squanders it.
But my horn You have exalted like a wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.
Matthew 25: 1-12
"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard: 'Behold, the bridegroom is coming; out to meet him!' Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' But the wise answered, saying, 'No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.' And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open to us!' But he answered and said, 'Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.
