On Jan. 8, 2021, I had a vision of coal being touched to the mouth of the prophets like Isaiah and heard, "May the fear of the Lord be restored to your hearts."
On the first month and eighth day of the year, the Lord gave a time-stamped vision with Scripture from Isaiah 6:1-8—six, the number of man; one, the first or beginning; and eight, both restoration and the wingspan from the eagle mentioned in the first part of this word.
I believe the Lord is saying the restoration of man can only first be completed when his heart and lips are cleansed. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; the Spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus, and both lead us unto holiness. Clean hands and pure hearts will lead us into the longing of encounter and experience and will open our eyes to receive His beauty. To ascend the hill and soar higher, we must first go low in worship, in reverence and in the fear of the Lord. (See Ps. 24.) There is a new beginning for the prophetic movement that will be established in the fear of the Lord.
The Amplified translation of Isaiah 6:1-8 reads:
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw [in a vision] the Lord sitting on a throne, high and exalted, with the train of His royal robe filling the [most holy part of the] temple. Above Him seraphim (heavenly beings) stood; each one had six wings: with two wings he covered his face, with two wings he covered his feet, and with two wings he flew. And one called out to another, saying, "Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD of hosts; The whole earth is filled with His glory." And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, and the temple was filling with smoke.
Then I said, "Woe is me! For I am ruined, Because I am a man of [ceremonially] unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts." Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. He touched my mouth with it and said, "Listen carefully, this has touched your lips; your wickedness [your sin, your injustice, your wrongdoing] is taken away and your sin atoned for and forgiven." Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
Soaring Above the Storm and Landing By Faith
The prophets who are willing to be purified will be sent and are being prepared for greater ascension. Jan. 14, 2021, I was in a worship service and went into a vision where I saw a lone eagle perched. Then I looked again, and he had circular flat "blinders" or blacked out goggles on. Connected to the sides of the goggles were long metal attachments that had tires on the bottom of each one, similar to what you would see on a plane when it lands.
When I first asked the Lord about it, He gave me the Scripture in 2 Corinthians 5:7 (MEV), "For we walk by faith, not by sight." Then He showed me that He was taking the eagle or the "prophets" to a higher level, and He said the goggles were for protection. The goggles were not only needed to protect the eyes from storm debris. The eagle's eyes were not yet acclimated to the atmosphere as he ascended into new and higher levels.
The Lord then began to say that many are dependent on their gift of seeing, but this is a time to be completely dependent on Him. The mature prophets will use the storm's wind to lift themselves higher, as does the eagle, and will ascend above the clouds. Even the strongest and most seasoned prophets are being called to flow in the wind of the Spirit blindly and with trust.
An eagle is disoriented when it cannot see and will sometimes even faint when its eyes are covered, but the Lord declares Isaiah 40:31 over you: It is in waiting upon Him and the mystery of the unknown where you will be strengthened and not become faint. The breath of the Lord will carry you; it will be by the wind of the Spirit that you ascend, and the wind of the Spirit will safely land you.
The date stamp for this vision was 1/14, and according to biblestudy.org the number 14 implies a double measure of spiritual perfection (2 x 7 = 14).
As three is the number of the Spirit, I believe the Lord is giving us three themes to take away from these three visions:
— He is bringing together and unifying prophetic circles, the church body, the fivefold and sharpening the gifts.
— He is purifying, cleansing and restoring the fear of the Lord to prophetic voices.
— He desires to take the prophetic movement to new and uncharted territory and through testing and dependence completely on Him we will land safely into the new thing in which He is calling us. The goal of ascension is to encounter the Lord and His glory face to face.
