I stood in the rain, hearing the clarion call to stand in the gap for my county and my state Illinois.
The rain came down on about 12 or 13 people who had assembled at the government seat to welcome the Holy Spirit to our county.
A prophet had a vision and the vision was clear all 120 counties inviting the Holy Spirit. It was historic!
Yet, as I walked out the door of my house, I heard Holy Spirit say This is an Esther moment for such a Time as this.
Immediately, I was reminded of the movie One Night With The King that was written and produced by Tommy Tenn. And TBN.
I had the privilege of meeting him and hosting him and interviewing his wife and TBN.
I loved the movie. I love the story! but this day I felt I was an Esther.
I knew I was redeemed from my past.
But I knew that it was time to BREAKTHROUGH every obstacle and talk to the KING!
The Holy Spirit is my Mordecai.
Wrenched with pain in my spirit grieving almost endlessly for the seriousness of my great nation I went to the County Seat.
There with others I prayed, I sang, I wept all the way home my heart was sore…
Psalms 73: 21 Thus my heart was grieved, And I was vexed in my mind.
A Message was forming, THIS MESSAGE!
I knew something was about to happen I could feel it! And, up until that very moment I did not know that Rosh Hashanah was going to be the year of the open door.
Once I realize that I recognized why I felt like I had become like an Esther.
It was my duty. I had no choice. If I’m going to be a servant. I had to obey regardless of what anyone else thought or did judged cursed or did anything I had to obey.
My heart leapt like a deer. I heard the Lord speak clearly ‘I am raising up many Esther’s across this nation.
I am loosening the bonds of intimidation jealousy, heresy, pride, arrogance, shame, fear, timidity…’.
I wept again as when I heard it again… In church
I sat, at the keyboard of our little church, and I began to worship, and when I did I saw heaven open, and angels were descending upon the Earth, carrying weapons of majesty, glory and war.
I marveled at what I saw it seemed so contradictory, and yet, it seems so satisfactory.
My mind flashed back to the meeting at the county seat.
The deed has been finished. All 120 counties have been covered. The rain came we cried out to heaven, and yet later I sat it the keyboard, and I saw. …
A multitude of angels. These were not angels that have ever been assigned to the earth before. THIS IS A NEW MOVE!
THE OPEN DOOR!
I heard the Lord speak again; ‘Would you? Could you Will you?’
Suddenly I felt a groan come from my inner belly… Only God.
I was reminded of the scripture out of the book of queen Esther, if I die, I die.
Esther 4: 1
Mordecai said, how do you not know that you were not placed here for such a Time as this?
Again, I cried father. I am but the weakest and the smallest yet here am I use me.
Then I clearly heard the scripture who will go for us who will go for us who will go for us? Isaiah 6:8... Also, I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
I cried out once more. Oh, Lord, in this year of the Open Door, give the body of Christ strength to go through every threshold that has been presented to them. I cried out God make us strong, make us powerful, make us united! We Must Get To The King!
Again I hear Him Speak Ephesians 5: 14 b
Awake, awake asleep or awake it is your time. This is your hour. This Door will NOT stay open.
NOW IS YOUR TIME SAYS THE LORD.
He speaks again out of Isa 21 ; 5 Anoint your Shields c
I said Anoint, Anoint, Anoint .
But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
Would I be like the Shunamite woman that cried? Have you seen him the one I love? SOS.
I said God, I can smell the oil on the door I will not ignore you.
Song of Solomon 5 I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.
2 I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.
3 I have put off my coat; how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them?
4 My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for him.
5 I rose up to open to my beloved; and my hands dropped with myrrh, and my fingers with sweet smelling myrrh, upon the handles of the lock.
6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.
7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.
8 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my beloved, that ye tell him, that I am sick of love.
Was I given a mandate?
Am I being called to reconcile recover? What is it Lord?
Then I knew It is now He who stands at the door and knocks.
He’s knocking, and we’re not hearing Him knock we’re too busy, listening to too many things too many people too many agendas too much pride too much division to much stuff it’s all around us.
Behold, he said, I stand at the door and knock, Rev 3:20.
But he continues … and I will keep knocking, and if you do not answer me, I will move to someone who will.
For Theresa there is a brand new, anointing coming to destroy the yolk off many! Are willing to pay the price for it? How many of you are willing to humble yourself to heal the land?
How many will rise and say, if it please the king come and dine with me?
Queen Esther did it. Her people were saved! She by passion Love and Understanding Saved A Nation! SHE WENT THROUGH THE OPEN DOOR!
Dear friends, will you do it will you cry out will you fast will you listen will you all unite with one another and save our land? Save our people from destruction?
My Own Promise. I say to you now, I hereby decree that I will stand and I will speak the Scriptures and I will possess the very Land on, which I step my foot. I will dedicate it to Jesus. I will Anoint myself and the Doors in my life I choose this day to fight the good fight.
This was my promise Can you make a promise?
Let us pray one with another the perfect prayer.
Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven, give us this day, our daily bread, and forgive us of our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever.
