Saturday, I flew home to NYC as the first outer bands of Hurricane Henri made landfall. About 15 minutes before we landed, my sister leaned over and said, “I think we’re circling the city.” I said, “How do you know?” She said, “See that dark spot? I think that’s NYC. We’ve passed it 3 times now.” No sooner had she said this when the pilot came over the intercom telling us, “Hi folks, we’ve been circling the city. It’s too dangerous to land in the storm. We will continue to circle for 10 more minutes and if we can’t land, we will go to Philadelphia to refuel, and then come back and land.”
So, true to form, I used the next several minutes to minister to the storm, reminding the Stoicheion (the physical elements) that they are created by God, that Jesus is King and that He needs them to fight for His Kingdom.
Now, what’s interesting about Hurricane Henri is the fact that its name means: ruler of the homeland; power, ruler, powerful.
Actually, the entire plane ride home I knew this storm was coming with such an impactful meaning. And I heard Holy Spirit repeat over and over to me, “There is a war waging in the second Heaven for your city. You must walk in the full amount of power, authority and dominion I’ve given you to rule and reign over it. You must assert yourselves as rulers of your homeland as you reign.” And so, we did.
Now, I’m sharing this with you for many reasons. First, this story is like a multitude of other stories I could tell you if we had time to sit and talk for a while. I could explain how, on the regular, I stand before powerful giants in the spirit and watch them bend the knee at my command because I am backed by King Jesus. I could tell you of financial structures that have been dismantled because I had faith and believed what I heard Holy Spirit speak to me and then followed His lead until His job was finished. I could explain to you how I’ve seen signs and wonders of incredible proportion manifest before my eyes with no explanation but, “the goodness of God!!”
But… I think the main thing I want to communicate to you is this….
You’ve been lied to. Actually, we’ve all been lied to. We are more than this materialistic world would like us to believe. The depth of who we are exists in realms, dimensions and timelines we can’t fully perceive with our conscious minds. We are created to vibrate at a higher frequency than the dominating structures and systems of this world would like us to realize.
Which is why it truly requires faith to step out of the comfort zones of this mundane, stagnant, 3-dimensional world to be able to experience the vastness of the quantum realms and realities that surround us.
And I don’t want to sound insensitive when I say this, but I’ve tried other gods in the past; however, the only one that has ever humbly stepped down into my world and timeline and offered me grace, peace, relationship and more love than I understand is Jesus. He is the only dude that’s been capable of saying, “I see your brokenness. I see your sickness. I see your confusion and anxiety. I see the disease and rot of your spirit, heart, soul and body. And I just want to restore all of it. I actually possess the power to do all of these things… Things you don’t know how to carry. I can carry them for you, when you surrender them to Me. And when you feel alone, My Holy Spirit, He’s always there to surround you, fellowship with you and walk with you through the trails, the hills and the deep, dark valleys of life.”
And you know, the more I’ve leaned into Him and His Kingdom over the past decade of my life, the more life I’ve actually gained. The more I’ve followed His Holy Spirit, the more realms and dimensions have opened up to me. The higher levels of faith I’ve stepped out into, the more power and authority has been entrusted to me. And the more I’ve asked for His confidence, courage and humility to be bottled up and poured out over me, the more assignments He’s given to me to stand before dark, demented and malevolent forces, while gaining so much territory for His Kingdom.
You see I am sharing this with you because I am completely over the narrative that we don’t have any power over what is happening in our world right now. It is a lie. We do have power when we are in relationship with Christ. We actually have so much power that a hurricane can downgrade to a tropical storm before hitting land, causing way less damage than anticipated. So, if you are reading this and you have a belief system in Jesus Christ, then stop whining. Stop complaining. Stop blaming others. Stop hating others.
And instead, get up! Get up and start cultivating a deeply rooted relationship with the godhead and your own trans-dimensional human spirit! Get up and see that your human spirit is designed to be seated in the 3rd Heaven with God and Jesus, as it looks down at the chaos below and rules and reigns over it all! Get up and start using the God-given power, dominion and authority we’ve all be entrusted with! Get up and create unity! Get up and fight back! Get up! 🌱
