In a recent encounter, I found myself sitting in a place in the cosmos that was not the heavenly realm, but was a “spiritual” dimension within created creation. Without words, my spirit asked the Father exactly what this place was. He said, “It is the place of governance over all that has been entrusted to you. Do you like it?” The way He said that was so sweet. I heard such delight in His voice, like a father who finds joy in watching his children open their presents at Christmas. I responded, “Yes, Father, I like it very much. It is my joy and honor to steward creation for You. I love all that You have created.” As I looked out through my spirit-eyes over this vast expanse, I felt such joy in knowing that this little swath of the cosmos was under His government through me.
I was wearing my queen’s garment… a living garment of exquisite blues and greens, covered with eyes like the peacock feather. For the first time, I noticed that the train of this garment was very long. I then remembered hearing Dr. O. share that when he first moved to Venice, CA, he saw the ruling demonic principality manifesting in female form, with her garment covering the city. The result of this covering of darkness was poverty, drugs, violence and death. And of course, he followed the Lord’s instructions to displace it, resulting in a beautiful restoration of that city. As I unfurled the long train of my queen’s garment, I realized that I was operating in the “real” of that low-level, demonic counterfeit. The adversary creates nothing, but merely “steals, kills and destroys,” perverting and capitalizing upon the patterns that God has established. In an instant, Holy Spirit revealed to me where this Divine pattern is demonstrated in Scripture!
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said:-Isaiah 6:1-3, NKJV
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!”
As I read this passage, I was astounded to see the pattern! He is seated on a throne and His train fills the temple. And in this encounter, I am seated in a position “under His authority and in authority” (Matthew 8:8-10), with my garment covering all that He has entrusted to me. Truly, it is Christ in me, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27)! In Isaiah 6, the spreading of His garment is connected to the “holy” (things being set apart unto Him and under His dominion). And it is connected to the whole earth being filled with His glory. So, following the pattern of spreading of my garment over this place in the cosmos makes it holy (set apart) unto Him, so that His glory can be released. And I know that, as all God’s sons begin to do this, the entire cosmos will be brought back into Divine order and purpose! The sun, moon and stars govern times and seasons, so as they align, everything changes!
My queen’s garment was pulsating with joy and life, and I could see the celestial lights glowing through the “fabric.” It was an exquisite and enchanting sight… so exquisite that I felt that this wasn’t work or “governance” at all. It was sheer delight, pure pleasure, holy ecstasy. In that state of bliss, I began to notice that I was breathing in and out the name of YHVH with intent. I think I had been doing this all along, but Ruach had just brought it to my attention. Again, I saw that I was following a Divine pattern found clearly in Scripture:
The unfathomable cosmos came into being at the word of the Eternal’s imagination, a solitary voice in endless darkness. The breath of His mouth whispered the sea of stars into existence.-Psalm 33:6, VOICE
I began thinking about the story of creation found in Genesis, wondering if this encounter with the breath of YHVH was past, present or future. Already knowing my heart’s question, smiling, He said, “Yes,” gently reminding me that, because the cross of Christ has made us one, we are outside of time, creating together.
Suddenly, the Hebrew letter Ghah encircled me, and I began spinning. The pictograph of Ghah is a twisted rope. On my spiritual journey, it has also represented a whirlwind that carries me higher. It is Jacob’s ladder, which is Yeshua on the cross. It is the DNA strand demonstrating that I and my Father are one (John 10:30). As I spun, my gown scooped up this swath of the cosmos – ascending, untangling, birthing… ascending, untangling, birthing… ascending, untangling, birthing… into infinity.
I was dancing a “chuwl” dance with created creation, and I was also creating anew with the Creator of all things. (“Chuwl” is one of the Hebrew words for “praise” that describes twirling and birthing.) I began whirling wildly to the music of the spheres: drum-like beats, synth-like melodies, and voices – so many voices – all praising Him with abandon. Was David hearing this song when he danced with all his might (II Samuel 6:14)?
In Luke 19:40, Jesus said that if men were silent the rocks would cry out in praise. I had always thought of that as rocks on the earth. But, in light of this experience, I couldn’t help but wonder if He may have been talking about “space rocks,” too?
Our praise reached a frenzied pace. It was wild abandon. As I continued spinning and spinning and spinning, out of my spiritual womb came new life. Then the Father said to me:
Dearly beloved, now are we the sons of God, but yet it is not made manifest what we shall be: and we know that when he shall be made manifest: we shall be like him: for we shall see him as he is.-I John 3:2, GNV
Perhaps this encounter is little wild for you. But the point is simply this: Out of our oneness with Him, the Father has given us richly all things to enjoy (I Timothy 6:17) and to steward (Genesis 1:28) for His glory. You can do that experientially through spiritual encounters like this, which, in turn, will manifest tangibly in the natural realm. You can (and should also) do this practically as you faithfully care for all that He has given to you to steward, nurturing these things and loving them as He does. So, spread out your spiritual garment and let the train of YOUR robe fill the temple of creation. It really is the Father’s good pleasure to give you His kingdom (Luke 12:32)!
Until next time,
