Bill: I flew to New York recently on an early flight for ministry and went to check in at a hotel at 6:45 a.m. The person at the counter said, "You are too early for a normal room. We are going to give you an upgraded suite and not charge any extra for it." As I stepped into the suite, the presence of the Lord was so strong that I was speechless. I am so used to doing warfare in hotel rooms to cleanse them when I enter, but I didn't need to because there was no reason for it. I said, "Lord, what is going on with this room? Nothing is in this room but You." He answered, "Someone has gone before you on this, and it's just Me and you." Since I arrived a day early, I was in His glory room all day before the meetings started. God took the heavy burden of pre-warfare away and made it extremely easy to minister that weekend.
The Clydesdales Are Coming!
This reminded me of the power and supernatural ability of a Clydesdale horse. If you had access to the strength of a horse for just one day, how much more could you accomplish? How many breakthroughs would be discovered if angelic-like Clydesdales took over for you? God is coming in power this time, and the greater the burdens and loads on the body of Christ, the stronger the delivering power (Clydesdales) will be. These horses are so powerful that I believe they represent angelic horses in God's army. They are coming with "power, power, wonder-working power in the blood of the Lamb."
Here's why they have arrived: Clydesdales are a heavy horse, a powerful breed used for bringing major results. Commonly, Clydesdales are Scottish workhorses weighing in at around one ton. Historically, Clydesdales are also outstanding warhorses because of their height and strength. They are often more than six feet tall, and they can normally pull around 8,000 pounds for short lengths and 400 or so pounds for several hours a day. These superior traits mean they are able to get into certain places other horses can't because the other horses don't have the strength and stamina to do so. Also, Clydesdales are normally very calm, even in times of battle. What's interesting is that Clydesdales have been known to remain extremely docile in very loud and hostile surroundings.
"He gives power to the faint, ad to those who have no might He increases strength" (Isa. 40:29).
You may think, "I am so weak." To quote the Hillsong worship song "What the Lord Has Done in Me": "Let the weak say, 'I am strong.' Let the poor say, 'I am rich.'" Don't count God's might out of your equation. The Lord is giving a break in our battles of life. We can get so used to mental warfare that we need to get our minds renewed and back into the mind of Christ. Restoration begins with "rest." Rest will become a mighty weapon in the corridors of our minds. These angelic horses will not only pull your burdens and heavy loads, but the Lord says, "You will ride them. They will carry you, and as you rest on them they will do the work for you." I hear the Lord saying, "I'm taking over from here. Get on the Clydesdale."
Andy: That same day, Bill contacted me about the Clydesdales; and just hours before he did, I went into an open vision where large amounts of golden oil were slowly being poured out all over the body of Christ. At first, I thought, Wow! But, oh man ... not another oil vision or dream. Oil and prophecy seem almost like cousins these days. Then I noticed what God was showing me: The oil was glistening like miniature diamonds resting from within as it poured down all over millions of people and situations that they are currently walking through. The oil was filled with healing antidotes and extremely high levels of nutrients. This oil is rich in energy like honey yet soothing like aloe. God is pouring out His best!
This time, the Clydesdales aren't bringing beer; they are bringing divine breakthrough oil. The Clydesdales are bringing relief (oil) to places where breakthrough has never been before, such as situations that have never been resolved, healings that haven't happened yet and in some cases family matters that have never been restored. In some situations, maybe we have never really allowed Him into certain areas of our lives in order for the Lord to completely heal us up. God is bringing His oil into unpassable areas, places we have yet to discover or uncover. It is the wonderful working of God's power to set us free. God is serious in these days about getting us help and making us whole. Where there's oil, there's spoil!
God is pouring the oil out, and it will:
1. Bring powerful healing on the body of Christ. The Lord is teaching us how to walk in consistent breakthroughs, and it is time to show the world that Jesus can deliver from all sins and sicknesses.
"Yet even more so His fame went everywhere. And great crowds came together to hear and to be healed by Him of their infirmities" (Luke 5:15).
2. Supernaturally shift financial burdens off the body of Christ. We can't doubt and walk by faith at the same time! We must trust, believe, and be very careful what we speak about money. Every time we say, "I don't have enough money," our words wrap a chain around our wallet or purse. It is time to say goodbye to debt.
" Then the master of that servant was moved with compassion, released him, and forgave him the debt" (Matt. 18:27).
3. A fuller, greater harvest. The Clydesdales are ready to work; they are ready for action. The harvest is pushing through—it is now time to go after the lost loved ones in our families and communities.
"Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest'? Listen! I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest'" (John 4:35).
Have you ever thought, Whose harvest is it? It's not our harvest, and even we laborers are His. Everything is His!
The Clydesdales (a spiritual symbol of God's help and breakthrough) will become a huge factor in bringing in the harvest. The people of the world will see the results and power of God working through us in such a way that they will chase us down to have His power (Clydesdales) and His presence (oil) in their lives. Remember, we are all a part of the harvest.
As a sign to the world and to the lost, some extremely bizarre (unfathomable) miracles are coming through oil and the topics of oil in the seasons ahead. Many miracles will be activated by releasing the healing oil over people. There will also be scientific breakthroughs in the oil industry coming soon. Remember, it isn't the oil or the Clydesdales that we worship; instead, we worship Jesus.
Jesus said, "For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matt. 11:30).
