Dutch Message by Video due to Surgery
Dutch Sheets has informed us he is unable to join us for Revolution due to an urgent surgical procedure for his back. Lamplighter family, lets keep our friend in prayer for a successful surgery and expedited recovery. Dutch is preparing a special word to share with you by video during the Revolution gathering.
Lord, as Dutch has labored so long to bring our nation into alignment with Your heart and covenant, we ask that You bring full alignment and healing to him in this urgent time. Heal and repair his back. Cause the pain to dissipate. Quickly Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
Vision: Jesus Tending Our Lampstand
Lets close this posting with a very personal reminder of what Hanukkah is all about. You will discover how He feels about the lampstand of your devotion, and His resolve to protect this flame. You will also see His resolve to restore His burning lampstand over Washington DC and across the nation. This is so important for 2020. From our book Midnight Cry, chapter 2:
Though I’ve had many prophetic experiences, to my knowledge Jesus Himself has only appeared to me twice in the 30 years I’ve been walking with Him. The first time was in 2002. The second time was more recently, in January 2014, when I awoke from sleep to the vision below.
Jesus was dressed in a deep red robe, holding a menorah. It was barely burning. This flickering menorah was the only light that illuminated Him.
Jesus cradled the menorah in His hands, very close to His heart, and then wept into it. As His tears and breath fell upon the fire, the lamp literally began to blaze.
Jolene and I were attending “Holy Spirit Over Metro DC,” a key regional conference at the time. And it’s clear the vision was conveying Holy Spirit’s work in metro Washington DC and many other regions. Tending our corporate lampstands, the light against the darkness, which have been in danger of flickering out.
But the vision of Jesus cradling our menorah first represented Jolene and me, and our personal lampstand. He cares far more deeply about our our first-love devotion than we could ever imagine. He wants our personal affection to shine!
And like a lover’s gaze towards her beloved, that shining brightens His own countenance.
First Love Fire
I am so grateful that Jesus Himself is holding our lampstand close and tending it with such care in this hour. All that the lampstand represents—passion and intimacy with Him, Throne Room access and ministry effectiveness, even regional breakthrough—He is desiring to preserve. He’s making every opportunity available to you and me for this preservation.
But your response is needed. In Revelation, Jesus is pictured standing among the lampstands when He gives the following admonition:
“…You have perseverance and have endured for My name’s sake, and have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place—unless you repent” (Revelation 2:3-5).
It’s important to note that amazing breakthroughs soon accompanied this vision. I experienced first-hand how the same God of our first-love devotion has committed Himself to work with us and preserve this fire longterm. He will reset our lampstands and relight the flame!
Here’s a precious secret to keeping your fire burning. if your eye is single, your body is full of light. The enemy has tried to divide and scatter many of you. Therefore the Spirit’s work begins with restoring your focus on Jesus. From this you will find the fire of your passion ignited again. A burning lamp awakening!
