Posted on School of the Prophetic Leicester 8th March:
Over the last few weeks I’ve found the number 5 has been popping up all over the place and then finally my wife and I were eating a meal at table 55.
I already felt the Lord was speaking about grace but this second 5 has opened the word of the Lord.
I heard him say the second wave of my Spirit has begun, this is a season of visitation, it is a time of encounter all who are thirsty shall be filled (Isa 55) this is a time to enter in and drink deep of the fresh release of my presence.
Many will be visited in the night, many will experience my presence in new ways. The last move was Holy joy and laughter the sign of this move shall be holy tears, many will weep in the outpouring of my glory.
At the start of the year these verses from Song of Songs have been highlighted to me –
5:2 I was asleep, but my heart was awake. There’s a sound! My beloved is knocking.
5:3 “I’ve taken off my clothes—am I supposed to put them on again? I’ve washed my feet—am I supposed to get them dirty again?”
5:4 My beloved reached out his hand for the latch. My feelings for him were aroused.
5:5 I got up to open the door, and my hands dripped with myrrh, my fingers with liquid myrrh, on the handle of the lock.
5:6 I opened the door for my beloved, but my beloved had turned away; he was gone! My very life went out when he departed. I searched for him, but couldn’t find him. I called out to him, but he didn’t answer
It’s only as I write that I notice these verses are in chapter 5 and most importantly what is written in 5:5 –
This highlights what I feel is a major key at this time, as God’s people we must respond, when he calls we must open the door to him for him to come in, it would be very easy for us to be settled in our current location and not respond got his call for us to leave our current realms of comfort.
It is time for the bride to rise from her bed to arise from her sleepiness respond to the Lord’s voice and enter into the great awakening!
- This ‘major key’ reiterates a recent conference Awake: Partnering with Awakening, as well RJ Dawson’s blog of 8th February, The Great Awakening: please pray.
- The emphasis on 5 and (11 times equals) 55 relates tangentially to the previous post on 11-year cycles, but more importantly reminds me of and provides further insight into the 55-year personal period I discovered in God-incidents Validate Cycles and Point to Near Future. My friend Bill Smith commented this applied to him too, AND the description of his personal event mirrors Simon’s references to Song of Songs.
