“COME UP HERE!” By Joey Rocha
After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” Revelation 4:1
In a vision in prayer I saw a little girl in a yellow dress on a swing. Her Father was gently pushing her. The scene emulated a sense of complete tranquility. The young child was totally at ease as her Father gently pushed her on the swing. As I watched her Father began to push his daughter a little bit harder. The child giggled as she began to be lifted higher into the air. There was a heartfelt trust between the little girl and her Father. I could tell that they had done this plenty of times before. And the child knew her Father would be there to catch her on the way down. But then something caught me by surprise. The Father suddenly grabbed ahold of the swing took a couple of steps back and then pushed it very hard. The little girl soared higher then she had ever gone before. So high in fact that at her apex the chains on the swing buckled and for a brief moment she actually lifted off the seat. A glance at her face revealed her anxious surprise. I could tell she didn’t expect that. Without a word being spoken I could SEE, “Daddy why did you do that?” Then the momentum of the swing brought her back down into the safety of her Father’s arms.

The portals of heaven are open. It is a new season. A time of great revelation such has never been seen before. In this season God is pushing his children harder because his desire is to take us higher in Him and in the Spirit. He is pushing his children to new heights accelerating a soar into new encounter and revelation in preparation for the harvest.
When the Father pushes you higher, at first the push may seem scary. We tend to get use to the gentle sway of things. So when God pushes us harder our faith gets rattled and like the little girl in the vision we begin to question him, “Why did you do that?” But if we will simply rest in our trust of the Father the momentary anxiety of the push will give way to a sense of awe as we see what the Father is revealing to us.
When the little girl in the vision reached her highest point on the swing, for the first time she was able to see what lie above and beyond the tree line. Majesty she had never encountered before suddenly revealed. From this new vantage point her eyes were opened to a whole new dimension. Creation sprawled out before her! The sounds and the colors came alive! For the first time she could see the heights of the dark green pines and past the woods edge. She could hear the sound of the wind whistling through the trees and of the birds singing as they swept into the valley below. She could see the sprawling white sandy beach in the distance yield itself to the vastness of the beautiful blue ocean. And she marveled at the bright orange hue of the sun setting over the horizon wondering what else lied beyond that. She was able to see splendor that she never knew existed. Yet it had been there all along. All she had ever known in her gentle sway was the brown blur at the base of the tree that lied just beyond her knee.
Her Father wanted her to see more.
Is God pushing you harder? Are you feeling the unease of the push? Does it sometimes feel like you take one step forward only to take two steps back? That is because the Father is pulling you back so he can launch you! It is time for you to soar higher! It’s time to see into a new dimension. A place that has always been there but you’ve failed to see. The door is now open and there is majesty that the Father desires to reveal. There is a great awakening happening, encounter and revelation that you would never have known had he kept you in the gentle swing of your comfort zone. But just like the little girl in the vision your Father wants you to see more!

A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
