Come Forth

This was a vision the Lord gave me on a late-night intercession ride. My prayer is that it will encourage you, let you realize that many have died without fulfilling their purpose, and spur you on to accept the gifting’s, the calling, the anointing and the challenge Jesus Christ has for your life.
You are important to Him, He has a plan for you, Father God has put dreams inside of you, dreams you never thought possible. Perhaps there is a calling you have from your youth, but it was battered by the storms of life or by people’s cruel words. The Lord is calling it back life in you.  Perhaps you are young, and you have a dream and people tell you it will not happen and scoff at the magnitude of your dream.  The Lord is blowing life into your dream. He is setting the captives free, He is anointing you. Read this verse out loud and declare it over yourself, again and again.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners.” [Isaiah 61:1] Jesus Christ has given us the victory when He arose triumphant from the grave. [John 19]
 He took the keys to death and Hades He will set you free of your bondages, your past, your unbelief, and give you the mantle of praise. Read this verse out loud over yourself, your family, your situation.
“To comfort all who mourn, to grant those who mourn in Zion, giving them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.” [Isaiah 61:2,3] God is on your side, He wants to restore the broken places, to redeem the generations, to make you His priest, to make you His minister, and to give you a double portion because HE LOVES YOU!!!
“Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins, they will raise up the former devastations; and they will repair the ruined cities the desolations of many generations……………..called priests of the Lord………ministers of our God…….you will have a double portion…….they will shout for joy.” [Isaiah 61:4-7]
Praise Him!!  Praise Him as you read this verse, “I will rejoice greatly in the Lord, my soul will exult in my God; For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness.” [Isaiah 61:10]
The vision began as thus, as far as the eye could see I saw skeletons of people who had died without realizing their dreams, callings, or anointing’s from God.  Not only did I see the white washed bones of their bodies but what I saw was much sadder, I saw their dreams lying in the dust beside them. The prophetic vision I was given is as follows:
It is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgement

[Hebrews 9:26-28, and 1 Peter 1:17]

And as far as the eye can see there are skeletons of men
Of men gone before you and men of past
Skeletons of their dreams, skeletons of unanswered callings
Skeletons of unanswered potential
If only you could see what I see
For the Lord has hopes and dreams for you
Eye hath not seen and ear hath not heard the wonderful things that God has prepared for those who love Him

[1 Corinthians 2:9]

Can you walk past those who went on ahead and left their hopes in a cup of dust
Do you not see
 Do you not understand that the Lord wants the best for you

[Ezekiel 37:11-14]

He calls you

[Isaiah 43:1,2]

He Pursues you

[Psalm 139:1-4]

Chases after you
He blows the Shofar over you
Wanting you to succeed

[Zechariah 9:14]

Wanting you to make the dreams
For you are called for a purpose

[Romans 8:28]

Knitted together in your mother’s womb

[Psalm 139:13]

For the Lord put the dreams in your heart and the purpose in your heart
Do not let the cares of life steal them

[Mark 4]

Do not be like the ones who went before you without reaching your potential

[Matthew 22, and 1 Corinthians 3:10-22]

The Lord calls you to more
The Lord calls you to bow the knee
 And lay aside the entanglements that are wrapped around you

[Hebrews 11 and 2 Timothy 2]

Lay them aside and move forward
He will give you the power and ability to do this

[2 Corinthians 9:8 and Ephesians 3:20]

He loves you
He loves you
He loves you

[Deuteronomy 7:9 and John 3:16]

He cares about your dreams
He cares about your identity
[Jeremiah 1:5 and Ephesians 1:5]
He put it over you
And surely as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so does the Lord love you

[Isaiah 45:6]

He has called you over many
For many are called but few chosen

[Matthew 22:14]

No mountain too high; no task too big
He will be your dwelling place
He will be your dwelling place

[Psalm 90]

He calls you forth
He calls you child

[James 1:18]

He calls you son
He calls you daughter
He calls you forth to be all that He made you to be
To fulfill those dreams that He put inside of you
Come forth; come forth, come forth

[Isaiah 41:4]

Leave the graveyard of unattained desires
Leave the graveyard of empty fulfillment
And come forth to be what the Lord has called you to be

[1 Peter 2:21]

The Lord calls you to come forth
The Lord calls, “Lazarus, come forth”, “Lazarus, come forth.”

[John 11]

Do not stay in the graveyard of empty dreams and empty fulfillment
Come forth; come forth, come forth

[I Corinthians 1:9, 2 Thessalonians 2:14]

Rise!!  Lazarus, rise!!
Do not stay there; do not stay, do not stay in the field of empty dreams
Lazarus, come forth; Lazarus come forth, Lazarus come forth
The Lord is calling forth a whole new generation of Lazarus

[Isaiah 41]

Do not sit there in the dust surrounded by the empty skeletons of hopes and dreams past

[1 Peter 1:1-4]

Move forward; move forward
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Lazarus come forth; Lazarus come forth, Lazarus come forth
Hallelujah, chains, and fetters break
Lazarus come forth; Lazarus come forth, Lazarus come forth
Lazarus come forth; Lazarus come forth
Lazarus come forth; Lazarus come forth
Come forth; come forth
He is opening up the tomb
Angels are helping now

[Hebrew 1:11, and Psalms 91:11]

He is opening up the tomb
The dreams are rising again
The dreams are rising again

[Isaiah 61:3, Romans 8:28, 2 Peter 1:4]

The callings are rising again

[Hebrews 3:1-19]

The blessings are rising again
Lazarus come forth; Lazarus come forth
Lazarus come forth; Lazarus come forth

[John 11]

Do not look for Him here, for He is risen
He is risen, He is risen
Never forget GOD LOVES YOU.  I will close with these two verses filled with hope, and triumph.
         “Now God has not only raised the Lord, but will also raise us up through His power.”                   [1 Corinthians 6:14]
“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.”

[2 Corinthians 2:14]

  1. Thank you for the encouraging word and reminding me to not let my gifts and calling be left in the dust by my dead, dry bones. Breath life into my dreams, desires and the plans you have for me let me rise up into thus destiny you put in me before the world was formed.
