GOLD, GOLD AND MORE GOLD!
Over this past month the Lord has been increasingly speaking to me about GOLD. This first started on the 5th June while I was in prayer.
I had a vision of a beach. I could see the waves coming in, foaming their way upon the sand. These waves were not tsunami type waves, just ‘normal’ waves. But as the waves receded GOLD droplets, nuggets, were left on the beach. Splashes from the waves too were like little droplets of gold.
As I continued to watch this scene, the amount of GOLD was increasing, of course, as the waves were building momentum. There was something very PURE and LOVELY about it all.
I asked, ‘What does this mean? Waves of GLORY? Wealth?’ But nothing was clear to me at the time.
Then the very next day, on the 6th June, again, whilst in prayer, I received a vision of a large flying bird. It was an Eagle with GOLD tips on its wings. More GOLD.
Again, I asked the meaning of this and for the previous day’s vision of the waves bringing in the GOLD.
I sensed that the Lord was saying that the Eagle was symbolic of myself and many others. That we have been ‘marked with gold’ prepared, through journey, through brokenness, through healing, through purification for something very precious that’s coming.
Then, on the 22nd June during the House Of Prayer meeting in our home, I saw a HUGE cloud of FIRE over the house and was reminded, (a friend reminded me) that this was the second time the Lord had shown us this. We had also received a prophetic word, previously, about this. That the Heavenly Fire Cloud over the property/land will be released to many hubs/gatherings/families/churches with the same effect that a rippling effect of a wave makes.
As I was journalling this later in the day, I was also given this scripture from 1 Peter 1:6-7
‘In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, you have been grieved by various trials, that the GENUINENESS of your faith, being much more precious than GOLD that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.’
My thoughts, conclusion even, at that time was that many of us have been led through FIRES, in order to BE the FIRE OF GOD to the NATIONS and that HE brings us forth as GOLD.
Then, as we prepared to have some rest days away in Cornwall last week, in an amazing way (you know how God radically so confirms things sometimes!) the word GOLD cropped up everywhere:
A pair of boots I purchased – were labelled ‘RHINE GOLD’
Teabags, bought to take away – ‘GOLD TEABAGS’
We arrive at the site, in Cornwall and I was looking through the leaflets:
‘CORNWALL GOLD’ – JEWELLERY FROM THE HEART OF CORNWALL.
We walked into a pub and ordered drinks. I looked back towards the door to see the pub was called: THE GOLDEN LION!
Eating lunch out the following day, we asked for some vinegar, the label – ‘Aspell GOLDEN Malt Vinegar’
I have photos of all of these!
So, early the next morning, I spent some quality time talking with Papa and began to look up some meanings of GOLD.
The COLLINS ENGLISH DICTIONARY says:
GOLD is a valuable, yellow coloured metal that is used for making jewellery and ornaments and as an INTERNATIONAL currency.
The colour GOLD is associated with ABUNDANCE, PROSPERITY and WELL BEING.
I read in Genesis 2 that GOLD was used from the very earliest of times for ornaments. And that GOLD was extremely abundant please read (1 Chr 22:14; 2 Chr 1:15;) 2 Chr 9:13-14 ‘Now the weight of GOLD which came to Solomon in ONE year was 666 talents of gold!
The MOST HOLY PLACE within the Tabernacle and Temple were covered with GOLD. Ex 25:10-11 & 17-18 Apparently there are 189 Bible references about GOLD. I read most of them.
Interesting to note that Gold and Silver are products of God, not a man made product. God designed them to be intrinsically valuable and beautiful. GOLD does not tarnish or corrode.
A precious metal, like GOLD is not only unharmed when tried by FIRE but becomes REFINED and PURE.
God is, and has, and will, refine US; to bring us forth as GOLD. At the same time it is easy for God to bring in GOLD in waves! It is easy for God to cause us to fly, like Eagles, Into places where our wing tips would touch the very GOLD of heaven and we will be marked for ever from eternity to eternity.
I’m seeing my Heavenly Father LONGING to give GOOD gifts to His children. I’m hearing him say, ‘Don’t be afraid of WEALTH in ALL its forms.’ SELAH….
I’m seeing many hearts and minds, including mine, being enlarged to encompass this ‘NEW’ that He is doing and even GREATER things He longs to release.
I want to encourage you – GO FOR THE GOLD! Give Him EVERYTHING!
Just like Jesus gave up EVERYTHING for you and me. When we seeking to live that wonderful John 5:19 lifestyle that Jesus lived then heaven can release as much GOLD as it wants and we’ll know exactly what to do with it! It’s on its way!
