"Climbing The Grand Staircase and Sitting at the Banquet Hall" 06-28-13
"Climbing The Grand Staircase and Sitting at the Banquet Hall"
(Vision and Prophecy given during the Service at SOG on 06-28-13)
As Arlene was practicing for worship at the piano before the service, I was caught up in the Spirit. I saw us all lined up before a vast grand marble staircase that spiraled upwards into the heavenlies. Angels stood on both sides of the staircase all the way up as escorts for us who climbed. We all slowly climbed the stairs one by one, all in a line. As we climbed, the angels would each nod and smile at us as we went. As we all got closer to the top, you could hear music in the air above us. The music was floating downwards towards us from heaven and as it got to us, it went into us and it invigorated us and strengthened us for the rest of the climb. It was no problem to finish climbing. As we neared the top, Jesus was standing there waiting for us. He was standing by a Great Banquet Hall. He was dressed in His Royal apparel. He had on a rich burgundy robe over his garments. He had on a matching burgundy velvet lined golden crown with jewels in it. As He saw us, He smiled, and He extended His hand out to us. He said, "Welcome to My home, dear friends, come in and dwell richly with Me."
John 11:5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. [They were His dear friends, and He held them in loving esteem.]
John 15:15 I do not call you servants (slaves) any longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing (working out). But I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. [I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him.]
James 2:23 And [so] the Scripture was fulfilled that says, Abraham believed in (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on) God, and this was accounted to him as righteousness (as conformity to God's will in thought and deed), and he was called God's friend.
Job 29:2 Oh, that I were as in the months of old, as in the days when God watched over me, 3 When His lamp shone above and upon my head and by His light I walked through darkness; 4 As I was in the [prime] ripeness of my days, when the friendship and counsel of God were over my tent, 5 When the Almighty was yet with me and my children were about me, 6 When my steps [through rich pasturage] were washed with butter and the rock poured out for me streams of oil!
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
There is a richness in the Lord that the church hasn't tapped into yet, and it's going to be a real revelation to her, because the Lord wants the church to live more richly in Him. A deeper revelation of intimacy with Him, and abiding in Him is coming to unlock the people of God, to be able to flourish in the position/place of rest with Him. We are tapping into new encounters with the Lord that will change our lives and perspectives, so that we can reflect Him even more here on earth.
We then enter the Great Hall with Jesus. The angels are taking us by the hands right now. Before us right now there is a long table and it goes as far as you can see. It is all laid out with rich things. The angels are taking us to our seats. We are seated and there is all manner of foods, fruits, and wines and drinks all spread out. There are fine dishes. There is a small gift on each plate before each person. The Lord has lavished His People with rich things and gives each person a special gift just for them, as a token of His love for them.
Isaiah 25:6 And on this Mount [Zion] shall the Lord of hosts make for all peoples a feast of rich things [symbolic of His coronation festival inaugurating the reign of the Lord on earth, in the wake of a background of gloom, judgment, and terror], a feast of wines on the lees--of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 And He will destroy on this mountain the covering of the face that is cast over the heads of all peoples [in mourning], and the veil [of profound wretchedness] that is woven and spread over all nations. 8 He will swallow up death [in victory; He will abolish death forever]. And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; and the reproach of His people He will take away from off all the earth; for the Lord has spoken it. 9 It shall be said in that day, Behold our God upon Whom we have waited and hoped, that He might save us! This is the Lord, we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.
The Lord then said, "I have a feast for you tonight. I want you to feast on Me, on My Love, on My Goodness, and on My Faithfulness. I want you to sup with Me. I am bringing you into a deeper union with Me tonight. I am joining you to Me in a greater, higher way to the family of heaven, so that you can begin to flow in a richer measure as a whole church, on earth. You are beginning to tap into a greater flow, a revealing, so that you can reveal Me to the earth. I want My Richness, My Life, to be poured out to others, but you must taste of more of Me, to be able to give more of My Intimacy."
I see Jesus now, and He is standing at the head of the table. He is looking at all of us. His eyes are like pools of water, they are fluid, and moving within. They are pouring life to us. He has so much life for us. He has so much life for us to tap into. We don't have to struggle through life, we can live in His Flow. There is nothing that we have to do, we just receive it. he wants to release a new flow into us, that will just lift us out of where we are now, into a richer, fuller place in Him. The Lord wants to move us further from where we are right now, into where He wants to take us. The Lord wants us to look into His eyes and see His great love for us. See the life that He has ordered for you. Receive His Life, and choose Life this day.
He says, "Choose Life this day. Do not struggle from day to day. Do not struggle in your thoughts. Do not struggle in your work, in your livelihood, trying to figure out a way. No! I am the way! I am the way! I am the way, and I shall make a way! I shall guide you through. I shall carry you through. I will even pour you right through, and you will slide on through, for I am giving life to you, and strength to you. I am liberating you. As you look into My eyes, you will see the Pools of your Destiny. You will see those Avenues that I have made for you, and you will slide right in. because it is time that you tap into My Life Flow! It is time for you to let go! Quit trying to figure things out, and work things out, and let Me move! Let Me move, and let Me flow, for I have a richness for you! My Richness will begin for you tonight, and I will wash you in My Butterfat. I will soak you in My Oil. I will water you with My Living Waters. Oh, you are to Me, a spoil! You are My Treasure! You are My Delight! I have won you, because I won the great fight. I paid the price for you, and now, I make a way for you."
"I want you to walk, and continue in Me, continue in My Flow, continue and eat before Me, and sup with Me, and drink with Me, and know that I am with you. Everything is ordered. Don't you know? Do you not see it? Don't you know that everything is before you on the table. Take what you desire. Take what you need from My table that is spread before you. Take what you need for it is available to all, for you are in your High Call. I have set you in your High Call. From this place you shall never fall, if you walk with Me, if you continue in My
if you will walk in the fluid of My Flow of My Richness with Me. I shall water
you liberally. Oh, I love you! I love you, Children! I love you, dear Friends! From
the beginning, when I created you, I knew you. I ordered this Day for you, for
this Day, is My Gift to you, because I see that you are true. You have followed
Me through all of the testing's and the trials. I say, you have succeeded,
Children. You are faithful to me, and you are true, and I call you My Friends,
and today, I wash you new, and I sit you at My Table." Liberty

Revelations 19: 7Let us rejoice and shout for joy [exulting and triumphant]! Let us celebrate and ascribe to Him glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb [at last] has come, and His bride has prepared herself. 9 Then [the angel] said to me, Write this down: Blessed (happy, to be envied) are those who are summoned (invited, called) to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me [further], These are the true words (the genuine and exact declarations) of God.
