Ready or Not Here I Come!
A word by Faith Marie Baczko
In January of 2019 the Lord told me that I was to focus on the assignment He had given me to prepare resources and schools. He impressed upon me that we would launch in May 2020. This was my understanding that 2020, was the year of launching. I had no understanding of what awaited the world in 2020, but recently the Lord impressed upon me to look over what I had written since Rosh Hashanah 2019. I was surprised at the amount of times I referred to rockets and launching and was searching to understand the significance of this. God highlighted the title of each Word I had written and certain parts that stood out:
THE COMING DECADE OF THE VOICE OF THE LORD!
“Thrust is also the propulsive force that gives lift off. God is the thrust and propulsive force of His people, that moves them, sends them and clothes them with power to carry out His will. In the decade ahead the people of God will find themselves suddenly thrust out into new arenas, LOCKED AND LOADED with the power of the VOICE OF THE LORD. He is saying now as He said to Jeremiah, “I am ready to perform My Word!”
THE ROAR OF A HEAVENLY INVASION!!
“It now seems clear that we are no longer waiting for God to move—HE HAS MOVED! The evidence of this is beginning to break out all over the world. Hollywood is being greatly affected, stadiums are filling up with worship, revivals are breaking out in certain cities. Despite the circumstance around us in regard to politics, the economy, in our nations and in our communities, the people of God are suddenly sensing a RISING in their spirits coming upon them and a shaking of the ground beneath them…the armies of God are riding in unison to gather in the Harvest and defeat the enemies of God!”
BIG THINGS ARE COMING!
I didn’t fully understand what this meant…how big the things that were about to come upon us!
“Recently, as I was praying, I heard the Lord’s voice boom in my spirit, “BIG THINGS!” BIG THINGS are coming!!” The Lord sometimes takes a very long time to move, but when He does finally move, it is sometimes accompanied by “…noises, thunderings, lightnings and earthquakes.”
JANUARY: STAY IN THE PLACE OF ASCENDANCY IN 2020
In this word I had a vision on myself standing in a boat on choppy waters in the midst of a raging storm, but my hands were raised to heaven as I praised Him in the midst of it! God was highlighting the need for thanksgiving and prayer during the storms that were to come in this year and the decade ahead!
This word was about a rocket that was a New Wineskin…getting ready to be launched! The emphasis in my spirit in this word, was about getting rid of everything that was restricting us from the take off. I understood that there was much that was restricting God from moving…hence the need for a shutdown in preparation.
THE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN!
Here I wrote about the instructions God gave me to hold three prayer thrusts leading to MAY…He highlighted again that May was a very significant month…in present light of all that has transpired to this day, I just feel the need to be very humble before this Mighty, awesome and fearsome God we serve!!
THE BIG RESET!
God had me write two words in March that had a great emphasis on prayer, intercession and warfare. I felt the Lord directed me to emphasize the need to understand warfare; that everyone would need to be equipped for the days ahead. When Israel entered the Promised Land there was much warfare to possess it! I saw a massive lion pacing restlessly with anticipation; the scripture that came to mind was Isaiah 42:13-17:
“The LORD will march out like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies. “FOR A LONG TIME I HAVE KEPT SILENT, I HAVE BEEN QUIET AND HELD MYSELF BACK. BUT NOW, LIKE A WOMAN IN CHILDBIRTH, I CRY OUT, I GASP AND PANT…I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”
THE THREE PASSOVERS
In this word God revealed that the date May 8th of our third prayer thrust, is the second chance Passover in Israel, where mercy was given as a second chance to those who were not prepared at the first. It is Also VE-Day, A DAY OF VICTORY WHEN THE ENEMY SURRENDERED TO THE ALLIES in 1945!
“Most notable was the Bread and the Cup shared between Jewish leaders in Israel and Gentiles all over the world, at the heart of God’s intention for the One New Man of Jew and Gentile in Him. After this event God gave me a brief vision, inspired by that time; He showed me a picture of white bridal lace having a floral design! As I pondered the significance, He gave me the analogy of the lace being a fisherman’s net. He said that as the body becomes a Bride, Her Bridal garment of honor and union would become the net He would use to catch the billion soul Harvest.”
READY OR NOT HERE I COME!
The word that the Lord gave me in early March, to begin our prayer thrusts, was from Revelation 3:20, spoken to the church of Laodicea.
“Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come in and dine with Him and he with Me!”
I felt that the Lord was voice was booming over the Church over the noise of our business and distractions, “Is anyone listening, does anyone hear; I am knocking at your door, open it and we will feast together.” …Not long after we went into lockdown. God has moved, He has arisen and is doing something very BIG in His Church. The Commander of the armies has showed up, He has come to take over!
The morning after the prayer thrust, the Lord revealed something that shook me in my spirit, related to Isaiah 9:2. Over the last 20 years, whenever I have read this passage my insides would shake and tremble.
“Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. The land of Zebulun and Naphtali will be humbled, but there will be a time in the future when Galilee of the Gentiles, which lies along the road that runs between the Jordan and the sea, will be filled with Glory. The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine.”
I have pondered this passage many times and wondered why it would have this effect on me…trying to understand what He was saying to me. This passage is a prophecy of the first coming of Jesus and is quoted in the New Testament in Matthew 4:14. Galilee is where JESUS BEGAN HIS MINISTRY.
“Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum, which was by the lake in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali—This fulfilled what God said through the prophet Isaiah: “In the land of Zebulun and of Naphtali, beside the sea, beyond the Jordan River, in Galilee where so many Gentiles live, the people who sat in darkness HAVE SEEN A GREAT LIGHT. And for those who lived in the land where death casts its shadow, A LIGHT HAS SHINED.” From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NEAR.”
That morning the Lord whispered in my spirit that He was coming! I am not referring to His Return but His coming to us, to our Cities—cities prepared for Him. God has fixed the timing of His movements on earth and they are usually always suddenlies that are expected but take us by surprise. Jesus is coming for such a time! The Global Passover organized by David Damian, where Christians took Communion with Israel is the most significant Passover and Communion since Jesus took it with His disciples, and a beginning of the One New Man. I believe that all the cities who took communion with Israel that day will see a move of God! I believe He is saying that it will be a Galilee Movement! Jesus is coming to our cities! Cities near water will especially see a move of God and from there spread, the Galilee of the Gentiles!
Jesus is coming to establish Cities of Refuge…safe Havens protected by His Glory in the days ahead! THESE CITIES WILL SEE A GREAT LIGHT! ON THESE CITIES LIGHT WILL SHINE! As I pondered this with the Lord, certain questions came to my mind and some answers from Him:
He is coming, what do we do? How do we prepare? He answers in Matthew: “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” Cleanse your heart of all idols, anything that takes precedence over Me.
He said is coming to dine with us, have food ready for him! What food shall we give Him? His answer: Our adoration and praise; thanksgiving and devotion, and our time!
Get your house ready and in order, have a prepared place for Me. Don’t sweep things under the carpet or hide them in the closet…I see it all!
Things to think about! How does your Ministry serve His interests? Was it initiated by Him? How can it serve on a much larger scale? THINK BIG…think with the Holy Spirit! We will need food to feed large crowds. Do we have food? God has been storing food within us over the last few decades—WE ARE THE STOREHOUSES OF FOOD RESERVED FOR FAMINE. Jesus is able to multiply our food when it is lifted up and offered to God!
Protection—What are you doing to guard and protect your gates? The gates into your home, your ministry, your church, your family? Gates can be people placed in wrong positions, presumptuous agendas, financial open doors not aligned to the plumb line of the Word.
Are you a new wineskin that can hold the coming NEW WINE—Costly wine! Are you willing to drink the cup He gives? Have you laid the old on the Altar in preparation for the new way we will walk…a way we have not been before? I felt that He said, “Put everything in the Fire and follow ME – that’s apostolic.” The apostles served Jesus only, they were sent by Jesus, not by man, or by themselves. Do you have accountability with others or are you a lone ranger? Without accountability you are a loose canon and God cannot trust you with supernatural power. The Lord is getting ready to hand over the big guns…but not to the proud and to the immature. Many times, over the last six words I have written, He has said to tell them: “Ready or not here I come!” He is coming! Are we ready?
THE DECADE OF THE VOICE OF THE LORD IS HERE! NATIONS ARISE TO YOUR GOD GIVEN DESTINY! THE ROAR OF A HEAVENLY INVASION CRESCENDOS! BIG THINGS ARE COMING! STAY IN THE PLACE OF ASCENDANCY! THREE…TWO…ONE…LIFT OFF! THE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN! TIME IS UP! THE GLOBAL RESET IS NOW!
Ready or not here I come!
