Early this morning I had a vision; I saw an angel of the Lord and He took me off of the earth realm and I went into a higher altitude in the atmosphere like a jumbo jet or some kind of a spaceship. While I stood in the middle of the air between the heaven and the earth, the angel said to me, “Let’s start to run now” So we took off and we were moving at about 500 miles an hour. I asked the Lord what this meant and He said to me, “Hear, my voice, I am about to take you and all the Partners of this ministry on an unprecedented speed”. And that’s when the word of the Lord came so strong that there is a chariot of fire about to take you from where you are to your place of Destiny.
I want to take you to the book of 2nd kings 2:11.
In other words, God is speaking about the entourage of heaven, the brigade-in-parade of heaven. The chariot of fire came between Elijah and his protege, Elisha and separated them and Elijah was taken to heaven on this chariot of fire.
Everybody is going somewhere but we are not all going to the same places. We are all going towards different destinations and amazingly the length of your journey determines the type of equipment or vehicle that takes you there. It’s difficult to drive a car from North America to Europe because the journey is really far. If you are going next street, you can not use a jumbo jet, you might use a bicycle or a scooter; all you need is a tiny piece of equipment. If God is taking you far, the Spirit of God will have to specially prepare the vehicle that will take you there. And the vehicle that will take you to an enviable place of destiny is not the same as what is required to take someone that is going next door. That is why when it comes to your race with God you cannot compare your journey with someone else’s because you might not be heading in the same direction or destination.
Whenever the Spirit of the Lord has earmarked your journey and God wants you to go to places that nobody in your family, generation or community has ever been then the Spirit of God prepares a special kind of vehicle that’s going to take you. God says you cannot go to that destination with a turbo plane or a train or bicycle or even a race car. God says I will prepare the momentum of the Spirit and it’s going to be upon the chariots of fire.
God never sends his power to maintain your mundane life, God sends power to propel you into his will for your life.
I know that you’ve got your own ideas and program about what you want to do with your life, but God says that’s not where I meet with you, if you are going to really encounter authentic and tangible kingdom power, you have to walk out of your own expectation and submit to God and say “Lord I know I’ve got my own agenda but at this hour, I’m asking that your Spirit take me out of my own system and propel me into God’s agenda for my life”. Step into the agenda of God and say “Lord, I’ve tried my own program and it has failed but this time I’m going in the power of God, I’m going in the Name of the Lord, I’m going on the wings of the Holy Ghost, I’m going on the chariots of fire, not my will but your will be done in my life. Not my plan but your plan”.
When Jesus came, the disciples were nursing the idea that He came to deliver them from the oppression of the Romans, they tried to make him fit in, they even tried to crown him their king but Jesus said No! I came to establish a higher Kingdom that will continue for millennia and unto eternity. Christ’s Kingdom was bigger and greater than anything his disciples understood. Christ kept telling them that greatness is coming, destiny is coming, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. He told them about a heavenly Kingdom that is not of this world. Jesus tried to show them that the will of God for Him was bigger than what they saw, but they did not see it, they did not understand it.
In this season, you cannot concern yourself with little minded people, because no matter how intelligent they are, they cannot see the picture of your destiny. While some people are busy complaining about the Roman Empire, Jesus was talking about a heavenly Kingdom revolution. Even now, while some people are thinking about getting past the next day, I’m thinking about taking the world for Jesus. While some people are thinking about starting a local church in the city and having everything stable, God is speaking to me about China, India, Brazil, Africa, Asia. He said, Ask of me and I will make the nations your inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth your possession. And so our destination as a ministry is bigger than what the human mind can comprehend.
For you to comprehend God’s purpose for your life, you have to go to the realm of the Spirit and get what the Spirit is saying. Human capacity unaided by the Holy Spirit cannot fathom the expansiveness of your divine destiny. People who love you cannot comprehend your life by what they think of you. You have to hear God. What is God saying about your life? God says “I am about to bless you with a blessing that will intimidate the devil”. It’s not by might nor by power but by the Spirit.
In 1 Corinthians 2:10, the Bible says,“These are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God”.
How could the chariot of fire, come and whisk a man physically, while he is alive, out of the earth? Deep things! How can you become the head of a business conglomerate hiring 500 people across America, Deep things! How can you become the head of an International Agency and people you don’t even know are serving you? Deep things!
Your parents, family and many people around you may like you and wish well for you but when it comes to deep and big things, it comes from the Spirit. Not your certificates, not the color of your skin, not your education but from God. God says to tell you, I’m about to do deep things in your life in this season and it’s going to overwhelm you. Forget about thinking, just receive it because this is bigger than your thought. What eyes have not seen, what ears have not heard, what has never happened to anybody. He’s getting ready to manifest that level of His glory in your life.
Deep things, Deep things, Deep things! When it comes to the journey of Destiny, it comes from the Spirit. That is why you are not like everybody else. That is why you get misunderstood and criticized sometimes. Elijah was not mixing up with everybody, he was a one man army because he was going to receive something that no one had ever received. And when God is going to give you something that he has never given anybody, He’s going to take you somewhere he’s never taken anybody. He’s going to ask you to pray, fast, give, and serve like nobody else is doing because you are a candidate for deep things. Great and mighty things that can only come from the Holy Ghost.
You can’t get deep things while living a shallow life, you cannot encounter deep things on a surface level faith. You must be deep in God! Do not follow the bandwagon. Deep things come to those that dig deep. Elijah lived an extraordinary life. The life of extraordinary faith and sacrifice. Whenever God wants to do something Big, He first sends a word and that is why he has sent me to you today. I know God has given you a word. I do not live by the predictions of the economy or on what the doctors told me or what my bank account tells me. I’m living my life on the Word of God. He sends me a Word. And when God gives you a Word, He announces your Word to everybody. God does not speak a private Word, but He makes everybody get into your business. God said to Abraham, your name will no longer be called Abram, but Abraham meaning father of nations; at a very old age. This name was supposed to reflect the opposite of his situation, so God made everybody get in his business and now everybody is mocking him by his name because everybody knows his story.
Maybe everybody knows your story in your family because you have announced to everyone that you are going to have a miracle. It could even be that people are already mocking you, do not be dismayed for the Lord your God will show up for you. You need to understand the process between the time God tells you He is going to do something and when it finally manifests; there is usually a waiting period.
