"But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings." Malachi 4:2
If you have ever read my writings before you will know that one of the ways that I hear God speak is through number patterns. I don't know about your experience but oftentimes I will see the same numbers over and over again. I tend to think that this is God speaking to me. I begin to pray and ask Him what He means by what He is showing me.
I have had many people come up to me and tell me that there are times they see 1111 or 555. I have seen these as well, but I have also seen 909. For me, this pattern has come to represent the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit and the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit with the zero being me in the middle. The two nines on each side are like eagles wings for the Believer. These are what help us to soar into the great destiny that God has for our life.
New Waves of the Holy Spirit
I feel that God is about to release a new wave of His Holy Spirit and many Believers are about to experience a new impartation of glory. If you believe and have faith that all things are possible then you are about to rise up on the wings of eagles and minister in ways that you may not be used to.
Throughout my Christian life, I have heard Christians debate the importance of character and power in a Believer's life. I have heard some people say that it is more important to have character than it is to have power, and then other Believers just tend to be about power and don't worry about character at all.
The truth is, we need to seek the Holy Spirit to have a fullness in both power and character. We must allow the Lord to bring healing to the broken places of our soul man so we can become stronger. We need to meditate on God's thoughts and ideas for our lives and let those thoughts mature us. We must not allow ourselves to be people who are easily offended or angered. We must be patient and kind. The love of God must be the hallmark of all of our lives. (Photo via Unsplash)
Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit - Especially LOVE
Many people will experience Jesus only through the love that you and I release to them. In 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 Paul states, "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing."
It is imperative that we find the way of love. 1 John 4:20 says, "If someone says, 'I love God,' and hates his brother, he is a liar, for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?" We must find the way of love.
The fruits of the Spirit are key to any successful Christian life and they always and only originate in the heart of God. We must turn to Him and find the way of deep intimacy. As we bask in His presence, we are consumed by Him. His fire burns within us and His glory overwhelms our senses so that we are transformed into His glorious nature. Time with God will cause us to love Him in His glory. His glory is His kindness, patience, love, humility, joy and peace. This is one wing of the eagle and we must operate in it to be effective.
And yet the second wing, which I believe is just as important, is the wing of the gifts of the Spirit. A part of rising into the things of the Holy Spirit is to become Christlike in the earth and release the things of the Holy Spirit into the lives of those we meet. Jesus said in John 7:38, "Whoever believes in Me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them."
Out of these rivers will flow the 909 anointing into the hearts of the broken that we meet. The gifts of the Holy Spirit include healing, prophecy, miracles – really everything outlined in 1 Corinthians 12. We should expect to operate in the gifts. We should eagerly desire to operate in the greater gifts (see 1 Corinthians 12:27-30), which include apostle and prophet. This is my desire. Is it yours? (Photo via Unsplash)
A Vision of an Eagle
I met a man recently who told me that he had a vision of an eagle flying toward him carrying gold on each of its wings. Immediately, I thought of Isaiah 40:31, "But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on the wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
I declare that the eagles are rising with healing in their wings. This is the gold. This is the power of God. This is the hope of all nations. This is the peace and joy of the Father in the hearts of broken men. God is sending His gold with His eagles. Those that are immersed in His presence are about to arise with healing for the nations.
They will be a part of the 909 revival. They will be vessels used by God to bring the love of Jesus and the gifts of His presence to broken men. I see them flying over the mountains and the seas and resting wherever there is a person in need. They will not be bound to nations, but they will fly above and see with the eyes of God.
