In the Spirit, I heard the Father say, "Columbus discovered the physical land of America, but there is 'spiritual' territory that is yet to be discovered!"
I saw heaven releasing a Columbus Day anointing upon the earth, with a fresh call to certain pioneers to loose themselves from their moorings and to venture out beyond where few people have dreamed to go. I sensed the Father saying. "I will need those few upon the earth now who were born to risk, dare and 'throw the "spiritual dice!' They will appear to many that they are seemingly about to go over the edge, but these ones were born to be 'edge pushers'— to push the edge back. These fearless ones will appear foolish, following Me as though they are headed to unmapped destinations. These are not normal pilgrims—they are wired differently. What worries most people excites them. But these few sold out to Me will prove once again that the world is round and not flat, and that I sit upon the circle of the earth. These chosen ones, willing to say goodbye forever to the past and present, will not return until they discover new, unseen spiritual land and territory upon the earth that has been hidden and soon to be found by their spiritual eyes. And when many of them discover this new land, they will never return to their own."
America's Ships Are Coming In
In the Spirit, I saw many leaving other nations, setting sail toward America with the revelation that "not all of America has been discovered!" There is a spiritual land awaiting to be awakened and raised from the dead! Many ships were destined to drop anchor in the harbors of our nation. I heard the Father saying. "Tell America her ships are coming in!
I heard another call come fresh to our nation of America to widen her scope of the harvest fields, to lift up our eyes to the nations of the earth. A call to the "land of the free and the home of the brave" was being extended to the "free indeed" in Christ, who were being summoned to other parts of the world to shine brightly in dark places for short pilgrim journeys as well as lengthy stays.
The Father was turning many hearts towards His homeland: Israel. A nation the size of a belly navel in the earth but filled with "spiritual riches untold—a land flowing with milk and honey" for all who pursue to cross her borders to explore. An urgent pleading call was coming forth from the heart of the Father concerning Israel. "Those who come to bless and help My people to find their spiritual inheritance in a land flowing with milk, honey and Me —will find Me personally visiting their homeland and nation in return, with great mercy and abundant blessings."
I saw pilgrims arriving upon the shores of Israel, proclaiming, "Oh Israel, your anchor holds. Though your ship is battered, your anchor holds—in spite of the storm, and it grips the solid rock."
If you hear this clarion call, sail on!
