Saturday, March 21, 2015 – The Bride of Christ: A Lioness Arising – Dangerous & Fully Awake!
We had been studying from Lisa Bevere’s teaching around the open vision and prophetic word the Lord gave her of a lioness at rest on a platform that had Numbers XXIII written across its front. That visitation transformed Lisa from a behind the scenes housewife and mother to a force to be reckoned with across the globe. Amongst other things, Lisa goes into the darkness of nations like Cambodia and Thailand to rescue women & children out of human trafficking. Likewise, The Lioness, the Bride of Christ, is being visited by the Lord with fresh vision of her identity and purpose – she is arising fully awake and dangerous to the kingdoms of this world!
Nisan, Passover, Judah
Also by “chance” on our Gathering day, we had just crossed over into the month of Nisan. Nisan is the first month of God’s yearly cycle of feasts. It is the month we officially cross over into the new year 5775, Ayin Hei – the year of the whirlwind, a year of seeing the sound. Nisan is the month of Passover – a month of miracles, signs & wonders – and the month associated with the Tribe of Judah. Judah means praise. And Judah always went first into battle – it is the warring, praising tribe, representing apostolic leadership, that releases the sound and song of heaven. And Jesus is The Lion of the Tribe of Judah!!
Dream about hidden lions awakening
In addition, we saw the tie to Tim Sheets’ dream about hidden lions waking up as released by Dutch Sheets on January 1st at Glory of Zion’s Start the Year Off Right Conference:
The alarm clock of heaven is now ringing on the night stand of the sleeping church. It is time to rise to the occasion. Time to get up! The Lord says I have lions hidden in my remnant; not wolves. They will now rise to patrol and remove the defeated ones – wolf packs that have come to scatter my flocks. My lions will be fierce, bold, aggressive and unintimidated. They will not flinch when adversaries advance. They will stand strong and fearless. A new roar will be heard from my tribe announcing territorial dominion. A roar claiming geographical and spiritual jurisdiction shall now sound from my remnant. A roar establishing that the throne of territory is occupied and grounded. A roar against hell’s power shall be sounded. A roar of authority in my name shall come against hell’s intrusions.
Lionesses – the pack is on the hunt!
So we worshiped in celebration and loosed our roars. One of the pictures from Lisa Bevere that inspired us is about how it is the lionesses that hunt and that they hunt in packs. So we gave thanks to the Lord for the many “lionesses” – men and women alike – that had crossed our paths from North Charleston to Etowah to Uptown Charlotte & around the city to Mooresville to Stanley, to Philadelphia, Haiti and beyond, and for the new circuit the Lord was forming in our midst. And we went to war on their behalf, loosing roars for favor, increased influence, provision for their vision and success in their missions.
We also echoed Apostle Tim’s decrees over all who would hear: “No shared rule says the Lord .. Power to overcome hell’s strategies, power to overcome demon doctrine and rebel government…Great revival fire burning through our intercession-soaked region…My awakening rolling. This region activated by My glory!”
Numbers 23:24 (NKJV)
24 Look, a people rises like a lioness,
And lifts itself up like a lion;
It shall not lie down until it devours the prey,
And drinks the blood of the slain.”
