Death to Double Time, Graveyard to Glory Time 1/2/13
I have been involved in more funerals during the month of December than in several years combined. Christmas just didn’t happen this year. In the midst of all the external things that were happening around me, The Lord allowed me to go through a Dark Night time internally, with all the upheaval of glory and warfare that goes with those times. For weeks I just tried to cling, and learn, until The Lord spoke clearly to me “Chuck I’m doing some important things in you, but it’s not just personal, it’s prophetic.” This is Graveyard to Glory Time; a Death to Double Time. Many of you have been through a death time, a graveyard time during the last of this calendar year. As you know, 12 is the number of harvest, and this has been a year of harvest, but 13 is the number for double portion, and the harvest that will be experienced in 2013 is going to be a double portion of the Spirits activity. Death always proceeds harvest. The harvest, in seed form, has to be planted into the ground so it can die. In it’s dying its gives birth to the promised harvest. A Double Portion harvest requires a Double Sowing, and a Double Dying. If you’ve been through a Graveyard Time, it’s because God has been preparing you for the Double Glory that is on its way. A dear friend reminded me of this verse yesterday form Isaiah 43, “Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder the things of the past. Behold I will do something new, NOW it will spring forth; will you be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness (that’s right, you are coming up out of the wilderness leaning on your Beloved) and rivers (rivers of living water) in the desert, to give drink to my chosen people. The people whom I formed for myself, will declare My praise.” YOU ARE ABOUT TO MOVE FROM PRISON AND PAIN INTO PRAISE as you celebrate the Double portion of glory and favor. As you finish your graveyard time you may have staggered, but even in the deep darkness your faith never failed completely, because He was praying for you the whole time that your faith wouldn’t fail. Now your faith will rise like a rocket, soaring in the Heavenlies, where Double Portions are realized. As you walk out of the graveyard of testing and preparation you Will soon realize that you are walking in a glory realm you have only hoped for. With Him, Hope never disappoints. Start Thanking Him for it NOW. Start declaring it as Substance NOW.
