Recently, as I was in the Orlando area, the Lord caught me up in an open vision during one of our drives. He showed me a glorious, golden throne rising up, out from the swampy waters of Florida.
The Lord began speaking to me, saying that there were many seats, or thrones of power, rising up out from the waters of the earth for such a time as this.
Thrones Are Rising
In my vision, this throne was immersed within these waters, hidden and covered by the elements of the lake. It was not visible, and it was unseen to the common sight. It was hidden for a purpose, and it was underneath the waters for a set reason.
This seat suddenly began to rise out of the waters with golden, glorious, electric, shimmering power as it was being elevated by the hand of the Lord. This throne rising out from the depths, represents the seat of promotion that many are receiving in this season. Because you were humble, humbled and went low before the Lord, the Father is lifting you up from being deep down below, drowned and covered in the waters of the earth.
The Voice translation of Philippians 2:9 says, "So God raised Him up to the highest place and gave Him the name above all."
This is your season of elevation. You're coming out of the place of hiding to revelation. You're coming out from the place of obscurity into great honor. The Lord is manifesting the sons of God in this hour.
Take Your Place
There is a seat that the Lord has reserved for you and all of heaven is waiting for you to take your place.
What are you waiting for? Now is the time of salvation. This is the day of God's favor!
"For He says: 'In an acceptable time I have listened to you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you.' Look, now is the accepted time; look, now is the day of salvation'" (2 Cor. 6:2).
Stop waiting and staring at this beautiful phenomenon in doubt and/or in awe, but go ahead and go forth and take your seat of power, favor and authority of kingdom rule and reign. If you do not take your place, the seat will unfortunately be vacant for unwanted stragglers and strangers.
We Must Occupy
Passive Christianity is the last thing we need right now. In fact, passive believers are futile to the faith and is a smearing offense to our God.
Revelation 3:6 (ESV) says, "So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth."
There are plenty of demonic and evil forces that will do all that they can to take and to steal your seat! And this is what is sadly taking place right before our very own eyes today!
People of evil and demonic influence are boldly taking Christians' rightful place of authority and are audaciously stealing seats and thrones of history and inheritance. The anti-Christ spirit is doing all that it can to silence the voice of believers.
Conquer With the Father
"The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches" (Rev. 3:21-22).
There is a repositioning taking place, and we believers must learn to conquer in and for the expansion of our seat of authority.
Shalom and blessings!
