The Maasai Warrior Vision

A prophetic panoramic view from 2008 to 2012 and beyond.

Habakkuk 2:1-4 (New Living Translation) I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guardpost. There I will wait to see what the Lord says and how he will answer my complaint. Then the Lord said to me: “Write my answer plainly on tablets, so that a runner can carry the correct message to others. This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.

Guardians of the Lion.

It is now believed, by some, that the Maasai come from the house of Joseph, and that their oral history of crossing a great sea may have been from the exodus of the Children of Israel from Egypt. Many of the  Maasai have become Christian. A recent DNA project has shown them to not  be as closely related to their neighbors, as there neighbors are,  to one another.  It is such a complex study it may take years to understand exactly where this people group originated, and who their DNA relatives are.

The Maasai  believe that the God (who owns a thousand cattle on a thousand hills) gave all the cattle to the Maasai. That is why this tribe of people have gotten in so much trouble stealing cattle. They believed they were only taking back what belonged to them.  Over the  years  I have seen these people in dreams and visions before ever knowing their history, or that they truly existed in modern times.  What I have to share below is one of those dreams and visions that included the Maasai Warrior. But first a brief history of what was happening during the time of the dream. I believe that in order to go forward we must, at times, review from where we came. For us, and I know for many others- we turned a corner in the summer of 2008.  This article is a panoramic view of what is, was, and is to come. It begins into the summer of 2008 and beyond 2012.

Smokey Mountain Visitation

The Lord called us up into the Smokey Mountains for 10 weeks of prayer and fasting for what we now know as the “Summer of No Return”. Little did we suspect at the time, that the events of that summer would bring the Lakeland Florida Revival into a screeching halt, where our(the Church) moral attitudes we had sown into the wind, reaped the whirlwind. Earlier that year, before the revival, the Lord revealed that a moral failure would take place, and how it would happen right under the nose of Christian leadership, with eyes wide open. The explanation from those involved, later, confirmed the dream to be accurate in every detail. As much as many of us would want to remove ourselves  from what happened at the Lakeland Revival, in the summer of 2008, and disassociate ourselves; we cannot.  This ordeal was us. Some  were close to it, and others were at a distance;  regardless, we needed correction, as a people we needed this rebuke. No household in Christ can ever say that they do not need to examine themselves, and look at what cultural norms they have excepted, as their own standards.  Toward the end of 2007  the Lord spoke to my husband and I  … that a great shift was coming that would  effect all, in every realm possible. He spoke of the political realm, the Church, governments, and nations.  He spoke to us and said, “A shift is coming into your lives, as well.” I can testify that we have never been the same since then, and a great shift has certainly changed everything around us.

The Bear Market Is Not Our Economy

That summer, in intercessory prayer, we saw the principality behind what we now know as the bear market. This spiritual heaviness manifested, literally, as a bear standing upright before me in the spirit, as I had my face down prostrate on the floor. There is more to this vision that I am not going to go into now, but everything about it spoke to us of what the economy was about to become. The intensity of war and the death of dreams that I felt in that room reflected the threat and intensity of a charging bear. I came up off the floor, ran across the other side of the house to check on our prayer mate. I needed to see that she was physically okay, as if the separation between the natural and spiritual realms blurred momentarily, not understanding in the moment,  that the warning was not a present danger. She was fine but had felt an alarm go off in her spirit as well.  We began to pray. For three days our group interceeded for the Bride of Christ; we also discerned that on a  TV program of prophetic intercessory prayer, thousands were hitting ( by the Spirit) this same looming darkness that none of us could know, at the time, would impact our world in the days to come.  The Spirit of the Lord moved us to pray that the coming changes in the economy would NOT  keep her from her appointments. Finally, in break through prayer (with in our own local group) we heard and seen (by the Spirit of the Lord) the sights  and sounds of the bride running through a thick forest that had, in the past,  only allowed flickering rays of sunshine in.

At that moment the sunrise ( like liquid gold) poured into the forest to meet her, she completely ran out of the woods, into the clearing. She threw up her face plate, and with everything that was in her she cried out YAH! In a lioness roar. The bride is coming out of the darkness and into the “fullness of the day”. We saw angels dispersing gifts and  knew some how the days to come would only propel the bride into her destiny. I am sharing this to remind all of us that we have a covenant sealed by blood. The blood of Christ.  Now is the time to step into it!  Nothing shall stop what God is going to do with the Church, as He is- so are we in the World! Of course we should consult wisdom, as always, in our financial endeavors, however, the bear market is not our economy.

The Summer of No Return

The Dream As Recorded In 2008

Thorns Verses the Rod

We went to the mountains earlier this summer, and in the first couple of days we were there, I had a dream.I dreamed that we were in the Sudan, and there was dry grass and weeds all around us. We had a canvas tent draped over a branch like a lean- to. I saw spotted hyenas playing down the way, and they were approaching our camp. They were an obvious menace, but not what we were worried about. The guide standing beside me, quipped, “Watch out for the spotted ones.” I said, “Oh, you mean the leopards? “No”, he said, “The Cheetahs.” At that moment the face of a Cheetah came into focus in the bush right in front of me. I looked back at our lean-to, and thought to my self, how are we going to keep the spotted ones from tearing into our home?

In real-time: The next day I was watching TV and Survivor Man was on. He was in Africa and he was looking at the scenery. The same scenery I saw in my dream! He looked over to his guide beside him and they both looked at his canvas lean- to, draped over a branch, and the guide said, “You will need to gather the thorn brush out here, and put them all around your tent to keep the lions a way…”

I thought about the long and odd neck of the Cheetah. I thought about the long and odd neck of the Hyenas,I thought about the long and very odd neck of the Giraffes. The Lord began to speak to me about the sexually immoral, and the tolerances of Jezebel. I opened the scriptures that spoke of those that walk about with outstretched necks, being full of pride. I read both of Peter’s Epistles, the book of Jude … these are spots in your love feasts…clouds with out rain….some saving with compassion, others hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. I remembered 1Corinthians 5- “It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you…And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned that this deed would not be taken away from among you…  I wrote to you not to keep company with sexually immoral… I’m not speaking of those in the world, then you would have to leave the world, but I am talking about those among you, who is called a brother, who is sexually immoral, extortioners, idolaters, reviler, or a drunkard- not even to eat with such a person.”

I asked the Lord, “Thorns”? Thorns will definitely keep the spotted ones at  bay. I thought of how you would really deal with someone like that around you. Most people who live that way would rather not get too close anyway, but the times that we live in now are twisted, and wickedness wants in!  I suppose if nothing else, thorns are better than lions tearing havoc in your home. The vision was yet to come however, that showed a higher way.

Now the Vision.
The Higher Walk 6/08

I had a vision after the Spotted Ones Dream. We were in the same scene, somewhere in the Sudan. I saw a tall and very slender black man; he was wearing a crimson colored garment, the color of blood. It was tied in a knot upon his right shoulder and wore it down to his knees. He was beating the tall grass with a rod, and when he did the Spotted Ones leapt out of hiding, and away from the camp. I saw now, that the thorns were for the weak, the rod was for the strong.  The strong was lean. He wore the garment, he clothed himself with the covenant, he was in Christ, and Christ was in him.  He beat the grass that hides the predator, with the rod of authority. The predator ran. His garment was tied up at the right shoulder, he walked in righteousness. He was tied into the Covenant.

The Word of The Lord.

“And this my called shall walk in. They shall save from the fire, hating even the garments spotted by the flesh.  The anointing breaks the yoke, as the rod breaks against the grass (flesh), as my authority is the rod. The anointing upon you will chase, with His very presence, the predator in the grass. You will see the wiles of the devil exposed in your midst. Their countenance will change at your glance into their eyes. Some will rush toward you in their rebellion, fear it not. Even more so, shall they run away. This anointing is upon those who abide in my glory”. ( Little did we know in the days ahead we would be confronted with these kind of encounters.  Yet, we saw the power of God intervene and turn these situations around right before our eyes.)

We can operate from the place of weakness or the OVERCOMER. The weak worries about strategy, methodology, practices and pursuits. He fears easily. With the carnal mind he wars against the carnal. He sets up the thorns of legalism to protect The House. The Overcomer is he that dwells in the presence of God. He knows that the Anointing breaks the YOKE.  He sees what his FATHER does and he does it. He walks in the full portion of the Spirit allotted to him. When you dwell in the Secret Place, the authority of Christ rests upon you. You walk in the knowing, when you dwell in His Glory.  Jesus could not have been taken, had he not given himself to his pursuers in the garden of Gethsemane, in fact the soldiers fell back when they saw who he was. The body of Christ will truly measure up, more and more, into the fullness of the head. We will see Him (be who he is) in the earth, through the Church with increasing power.

For God’s Covenant People
2011 and 2012

In the last several weeks the Lord has been reminding me of this vision in a flurry of circumstances that could not be ignored. One being an e-mail response  I received from a Missionary that has been working with the Maasai  for many years, and his revelation of what God is doing with these people. The vision of the Maasai Warrior spoke of an authority that the Church was going to come into.  A people known, yet hidden, favored yet feared, traditional but in a trend.  Once lion slayers now warriors for the lion’s cause. I believe the vision is for now, for us to step into fearless resolve being the people of God, in His rest, and secured in His trust. After all we (like the Maasai Warrior) walk tall in Christ and we carry a big stick. For Jesus said, ” I have given you power to tread  upon scorpions and serpents and over ALL the power of the enemy.”

2011 will be an incredible year of contrasts

What will be JUSTICE  for some will become a day of  JUDGMENT for others. This will manifest among the ruling class, more so than in any other group in the days and weeks to come. It will be world-wide, and it will seem to rock the proverbial boat of nations.  The purpose for this is to loosen up the ground so that (deep-rooted) political strongholds can be removed for a redistribution of political powers. Things are going to continue to change in our world. It is better to throw ourselves upon the Rock, rather than the Rock to crush us. The 112th Congress will come together in 2011. The number 11 represent judgment and 12 ruler ship. It is not by coincidence that these numbers are coming together at this time in history, any more than it was a coincidence that the emergency numbers 911 fell on September 11th 2001, the greatest emergency America has ever seen on its own soil. Many great men and women will do well if they would just  throw them selves upon the ROCK of ages. Would that we all, in all things, do just that. Lord help us to always examine ourselves.

By 2012 those who belong to Christ will have come into a true understanding and composition of kingdom authority. The camp will begin to move  out together for the final posture the Church will take before Christ’s  return. In the days to come we will begin to exercise our authority as the Church, not just as church members, but  communication capabilities and technologies will allow us to come together in kingdom declarations and agreements.  This will  manifest on a greater scale by 2012.  These will not be political  movements, but will be regarding spiritual authority over circumstances in the earth.   Our understanding of God’s authority  will take us onward and upward into the fullness of that great  day … Arise and shine for the glory of the Lord is risen, and the glory of the Lord is come! Great darkness will cover the earth and gross darkness the people, but my light will shine upon you, and kings will come to the brightness of  YOUR dawn!

Slipping Into A Holy Oblivion

created 12/7/2010 4:41 pm

I see a seat of authority even now, that has an overwhelming  longing  for God.  A power, fame, and fortune  longing for His kingdom. One in particular: I see a picture of  a woman, who has a great seat of authority. I see her stepping off this throne of power, and all of it melting into a sea of anonymity. In her longing for Christ she will merge into His image and become lost into a Holy oblivion, all her Gold to melt into the Crystal Sea. The Great City will be paved, someday, by this sacrifice, along with the gold of so many others who laid up their treasures in heaven where moth or rust cannot corrupt. Is she a woman,  a nation, or a kingdom? Is she a remnant of the Laodicean Church? Let us remember we once were lost too. Never stop praying for those in authority. Never stop praying for Kings (gatherers of wealth and domains) in the earth. It is a good thing not to join the mob mentality; we come from a more dignified place. We are seated with Him in high places, and we have the mind of Christ. To be influenced by rumors, and the propaganda of political parties, is not our source of truth. We have the source in us, we are the temple of the Holy Ghost, who is the Spirit of all truth. There will be wars and rumors of wars, but we are not swayed by them, God directs our footsteps.

In Closing

There may be “spotted ones” among us, right before our eyes, in our camps, but the power of God will expose them. Are we ready to now go where angels fear to tread? The church is throwing out the thorns,  and allowing the rod to shake the chaff; kingdom authority will break against temporal lures, and drive away the predators in the grass. Darkness will go where darkness goes, and light will come out from the shadows. These powerful exchanges will peak in the days and seasons to come. 2011, 2012 and on. We will be awestruck by who and what chooses  darkness over light, as some well esteemed christian organization and leaders will turn into the night. On the other hand we will rejoice and be AWE INSPIRED  by who we will see rising up, and coming forward towards the fullness of the day.  –Kings and  Kingdoms shall rise up and  come to the brightness of your dawn. Those who hunger and thirst after righteousness shall be filled …  it is the great exchange.

The Baals
Ports of Entry

2 Thessalonians 2:16 (New International Version, ©2010)

The Man of Lawlessness

Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters,  not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come.  Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things?  And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time.  For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.  The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie,  and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.  For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

Stand Firm

But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.  He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
