I was in my prayer closet crying and humbling myself in His presence. Just simply laying it all down again, desiring that He would just deal with me in whatever way He desires. As I was sitting still in His presence, I heard the number 47 in my spirit. Instantly I knew it was Isaiah 47. I could not remember what was written there. I read it and knew that it was a message for the USA. After reading the chapter the Lord gave me a word, but I knew that I had to wait on Him to "flesh" it out for me and give me context apart from the obvious.
Father impressed Esther upon my heart, because the spiritual climate we find ourselves in, is increasingly becoming more and more similar to the time of Purim where Esther had to seek the King for grace. Truly this is a time to enter His throneroom like Esther did with boldness where we are to find mercy and grace in a time of need. For ourselves and for those who are not right with Him. Why do I say this? Maybe some are aware of this, others may not be, but there has been numerous articles out since the Obama presidency of thousands of guilotines ordered and delivered Not only that, but FEMA camps have been built for various reasons we are told. I myself have had a dream where I was in a concetration camp. These things are no longer speculations. These things are no longer "conspiracy theories". They are facts and truth in plain sight. The real question is, "Do we have our ear next to His mouth to hear what is required for us at such a time as this". As Mordecai said to Esther, "For who knows, you may be born for such a time as this". Presently we could easily say that our Haman has risen in these past years in the form of various dictators all over the world with there gallows set in place. If our focus is only on our own personal Haman, we may stand the chance to lose sight of the big picture. We need to consider both. We are presently wrestling with the rise of the spirit of Anti-Christ all over the world, increasing with momentum daily. There is only one aim, and that is to see those who love the Most High dead and destroyed at all costs.
Esther and her people were found in exactly the same position we now find ourselves in. And it is only going to get worse as we will soon enter into Tribulation and the persecution of all those left behind will increase drastically. What some may think is a reason for us to stand and come against those in authority in the physical realm as appropriate, may have a place and time. However, what Mordecai, as a type and shadow of the Holy Spirit, told Esther to do, was to fast for 3 days. In a time of persecution He asks of us to fast. And we are in a time of persecution. No longer just the underground church, but all those who call on the Name of Yehushua. When we do not eat or drink for a time, we enter into a state of weakness of body and mind, but the fasting of the flesh, is the feasting of the spirit. And this is where we need to be strong in...in the spirit man. As the Word says, "Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit", says the Lord. We understand this 3 days to be significant with regard to the resurrection. We will not be able to fight this in the flesh, but by resurrection power, which is the life of the Spirit. The purpose of a fast is to humble our souls. David said, "I humbled my soul with fasting". It is to humble yourself. And this I believe is exactly what He is calling us to do at this hour. Unless we see the critical time we are in, and that we were born for such a time as this, we will only see this as just another religious "work", and not see the vital role we play in God's timing of our birth. But I pray that you will see that our time is exactly as that which was foreshadowed during Esther's time. We can also know that we are coming into the heavenly throneroom of God and not to a mere man. Therefore we do not come unless we have searched our hearts and repented before we ask Him anything.
Our fasting has to be that of humbling ourselves afresh before the great High King, that we may indeed come with boldness to His throne of grace in utter humility. Not only for ourselves, but also for those who will be here during the Tribulation. This was the whole purpose of Esther's fasting. To prepare her heart before she approached the King's throne and plead for her people's lives. Haman is not about to go away, for he will be used as a judgment on those who take the ordinances of God lightly and scoff at the standard of holiness. They will indeed pay with their lives as they will be called to deny their God. And it is for them that we are to intercede and plead that He would extend His sceptor of favor and grace unto those who will desperately need it in the time to come. Her intercession was preceded with her own fasting. Can we really afford to take this call to sackloth lightly in such a time as this? Haman has come into many of our lives in the form of unbelievers whether spouse, friend or neighbour. That same spirit will start to rise even more within them in the very near future. We are to pray and fast for those who are deceived and seek God's face to destroy the plans of the enemy that is outside His time of judgment. It is His desire that His children, His Esthers will seek His face in such a time as this, as it is not His desire that anyone should perish. Even as Jonah went in sackloth to Nineveh, as John the Baptist lived in it, we are to not only cry out that all repent, but we ourselves are to be clothed in repentance.
We have to start with our own hearts and undisciplined lifestyles, that which we compromising with, and allow Him to bring the sharp edge of His sword down on our uncircumcised hearts. For it is the flesh which is our own personal Haman. The word says in Romans 8 that the flesh is in enmity with the Spirit, even as Haman with Esther. And unless you deal with your own personal Haman that you have cuddled and kept close, how can you ask Him with boldness to destroy the one without? Deal with the Haman within before you want to deal with the Haman without.
It is NOW that we are to seek Him and call upon Him for mercy, for soon there will be destruction like never before. Soon our merriment and joy will be turned into mourning. Who can stand in the day of judgment before the Most High God? I would say that an Esther fast is appropriate for this occasion, but in reality the fasting has to be a disposition of repentance. In reality it has to be a state of mind where we walk in humility before Him, seeking Him to judge us now and save us from ourselves. It is a time of mourning now over our unfaithful hearts and adulterous ways. Now is the time to seek His face.
The number 47 in Hebrew is Abbir. It means mighty and valiant. This is the Esther company that comes with boldness to the throne of grace. The workers who in fact should be working already. They stand in the gap now.
The number 47 in Greek is Hagneia, which means purity and chastity. This is a refrence to the virgin company that has not defiled themselves with this world. Fasting is for the purpose that the Spirit may purify us. It is a willing act on our behalf saying, "Lord, show me and do not spare me". This word Hagneia is derived from the word Hagnos. Here is the definition of Hagnos.
Definition: free from ceremonial defilement, holy, sacred
Usage: (originally, in a condition prepared for worship), pure (either ethically, or ritually, ceremonially), chaste.
53 hagnós (an adjective, which may be cognate with 40 /hágios, "holy," so TDNT, 1, 122) – properly, pure (to the core); virginal (chaste, unadultered); pure inside and out; holy because uncontaminated (undefiled from sin), i.e. without spoilation even within (even down to the center of one's being); not mixed with guilt or anything condemnable. Unsullied virgin.
Word Received 7th February 2021
Put on your sackloth and sit in the ashes of humility. For unless you yourself not only wear sackloth, but it is engraved in your fibre, how can you who have not allowed My holy judgment to have come over you speak the same judgment over another?
Are you wearing the sackloth of repentance? Are you sitting in the ashes of humility? Have you made this your disposition? Are you recognizing the hour of your humiliation? For how can there be any glory without humility? Yet My people have ceased to seek Me in true repentance. They are no longer the Elijahs who by their lives wear sackloth. They point the finger and jugde.
I alone are He who judges and judges righteously. But you have taken it upon you to claim My glory without true humility. Now is the time to seek Me in sackloth and ashes. Now is the time to humble yourself before Me.
If you have no identification with destruction, how can you idly speak it? Look and you will see that unless you allow your sackloth to be the identification with My cross, My suffering, you cannot share in My glory. Death unto Life! Whilst you are still living life from out of your own ability, you have yet to enter into My death. Therefore repent in earnestness. Put on the sackloth of repentance and sit in the ashes of humility.
