I saw many of the people of God pressing into prayer and the secret place and suddenly a whirlwind seemed to "come out of nowhere". It was a whirlwind of opposition/attack sent by the enemy to bring distraction and hinder the place of "communion" and "intimacy" for the people of God.
Many were struggling to press in through prayer. Many were fighting against fatigue that would hit heavily in their prayer time and times of worship. Many feeling a "battle" to "connect" with the Lord in the secret place.
There is an attack released upon the people of God who are pressing deeper into prayer and intimacy with Him in the secret place, because the Lord is unlocking new realms of revelation and areas of breakthrough.
The people of God are moving into a new level of revelation concerning their authority in Christ and a great awakening is happening in their hearts concerning their identity in Him. The sons and daughters of God are arising as they are pressing in.
I saw many disheartened by this battle in the secret place and this battle in prayer. Do not be discouraged, do not be in despair by this battle, for I sensed the Lord saying that this battle is an INDICATION of what is waiting for you ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS!!!!
Some of you are but A PRAYER AWAY from breakthrough and the enemy is attempting to do all he can to keep you from that place.
Some of the greatest encounters with Him, revelation and explosion of insight into His Word await you. Heavenly strategies, wisdom and keys to spiritual warfare are going to be opened up to you at a new level.
Bill Johnson says that "Fire ALWAYS falls on sacrifice" and that is exactly what I feel the Lord is saying. IN the place of battle, IN the place of opposition and distraction that is coming at you in the secret place, OFFER Him praise, PRESS THROUGH and get into the Word, IN the battle continue to pray even if you feel like nothing is shifting. OFFER HIM your praise, adoration and positioning despite the battle. The FIRE OF GOD is attracted to your sacrifice.
Your praise, your sacrifice to Him, is like a beautiful incense rising to Him that is not only seeing heaven rain down on you, but DISARMING the whirlwind attempting to knock you off course.
I saw the fire of God fall on the people of God bringing transformation, freedom, healing, positioning for greater momentum and EYES being set on fire to SEE like they have NEVER seen before in the spirit.
COMMUNION IS A KEY
I also felt the Lord saying that as His people press through this battle, take communion in the secret place with Him and focus on HIS sacrifice for us, a turning will take place.
The enemy is attempting to counterfeit what the Lord is releasing. Whirlwinds from heaven are being released into the secret place as His people meet with Him and minister to Him with their praise and adoration. Out of the encounters with Him in the secret place, whirlwind changes will occur in the natural.
I felt the Lord saying "EVERYTHING that My people need for breakthrough is found in Me and in encountering Me. When these encounters are entered into and the instruction and revelation are released in them and put into action, My people will see many things turned around suddenly."
