- Raised out of the dust (1 Kings 16:2)
- Released from the dust (Matthew 10:14)
- Repositioned above the dust (Isaiah 35:8)
For He brings down those who dwell on high, the lofty city; He lays it low, He lays it low to the ground, He brings it down to the dust” (Isaiah 26:5)
Thus saith the Lord: “The ungodly will flee at My presence. They shall be scattered . . . even scattered as dust before Me. For the flood of ungodly men has made My people afraid. I will NOW ARISE and DRY UP the flood of ungodliness.
I will send a mighty wind and BLOW AWAY the enemies of My people. You will look for them and not find them, for I, the Lord your God, am about to move in POWER on behalf of My people. Do not be disturbed by the things you see for you have not seen Me move in this way before. You have not seen the hills shake at My presence. You have not seen the fire that goes before Me. You have not heard the mighty wind in which I move nor seen the Way in the seas that I make as I move through the oceans of the world.
Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; Before they spring forth I tell you of them”
Christ in you, the Scripture says, is the hope of God’s glory (Colossians 1:27). Christ manifested outwardly upon you, however, is the realization of His glory. Our Lord is waiting for this realization in our generation. Believers who carry the glory of God formed within them will soon find this glory, including both the loveliness of God‘s character and His awesome power are now visible upon them—Christ, Ha-Mashiach the Messiah, on display! Through these, His glorious people— “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14).
In a three-part vision, I could see this reality; the realization of the glory of the Lord through His people. The vision began with a heavenly perspective, then a transition perspective between heaven and earth, and finally an earthly perspective.
View of the original City of David including Mount Zion
“O Zion, You who bring good tidings, Get up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, You who bring good tidings, Lift up your voice with strength, Lift it up, be not afraid; Say to the cities of Judah, ‘Behold your God.'”
The Lord’s visions to me have begun a new focus. All of them focus on an overcoming remnant people moving upward in His New Kingdom plan. In the most recent of these visions, two groups of people stood apart at variance to one another. These two groups were holding onto opposite ends of a strong rope stretched tightly between them.
One group, Jerusalem, was a type of the “Church Age.” Each was beautifully dressed in glistening white robes. Those in this group stood down in a deep valley, immersed in the crystal clear river of God. These were part of God’s covenant people. They were chosen to remain safely in the valley, bathed in God’s River. The white robes they wore indicate the righteous acts of the saints. “And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints” (Revelation 19:8).
