Have you been seeing numbers? Then you have been NUMBERED!

Many of us have been seeing numbers everywhere! We have been seeing number patterns on the clock, on our microwaves, our vehicle radios, our grocery store receipts. Some of us have been seeing numbers for years, and others have just started to notice them. Some of us have even begun to see some number patterns start to differ, changing from what we have been seeing for so long. These numbers have become so common that entire websites and blogs are devoted to number patterns’ interpretations and explanations!

Why is this? Why is this happening? I have one possible explanation, knowing God’s sense of humor and His affinity for “play on words”: We have been NUMBERED!

I had a revelation recently upon reading the book of Daniel that much like being BRANDED (see Ephesians 4:30) that we have been NUMBERED! Look at this definition:

“Then was the part of the hand sent from the presence of [the Most High God], and this writing was inscribed. And this is the inscription that was written, mene, mene, tekel, upharsin—numbered, numbered, weighed, divisions.” (Daniel 5:24-25 AMPC).

I know, it looks bad on the surface, because most of us know the story.  But don’t worry – it is definitely a good thing to be numbered by God, because God LOVES to number His people!

The short version of this scripture is that Nebudchadnezzar’s son, Belshazzar, was very bad, and he got a very bad judgment, written in stone, as it were, by a divinely sent floating hand (see Daniel 5:5). The judgement was that the days of his kingdom were numbered and ended.

But God! Thankfully that is not us. In fact, to take it a step further, even though I may not know you, if you are reading this, you are probably NOT a Belshazzar. In fact, no one I know is a Belshazzar. I am sure you don’t, either. So, no worries! You are not a Belshazzar, so you will not receive a Belshazzar judgement. That is why you are being numbered!

God wants to number us, so pay attention to those numbers. God meant what He said, too, because He said MENE twice! Anytime God says something twice in His word, it means PAY ATTENTION! He really wants to number us!

“And this was the inscription that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN-numbered, numbered, weighed, divisions.” (Daniel 5:25 AMPC).

Have you been seeing NUMBERS? Then you have been NUMBERED! You count because you have been counted! God has special plans and purposes for you in the earth realm! Look here:

  • We are numbered amongst the ELECT (Isaiah 42:1)

(Note: elections are counted – with numbers!)

  • We are numbered amongst the CHOSEN (Deuteronomy 7:6);
  • We are numbered as part of the REMNANT (2 Kings 19:30);
  • We are numbered among the 144,000 (Revelation 14:3);

God has numbered us! This is good news! Even the book of Numbers records census results for all twelve tribes – not just once, but twice (see Numbers 1:46 and Numbers 26:51). Remember that when God speaks, we listen, but when He says it TWICE – we had better pay attention! There will be No believer left behind! We have been numbered!

Tekel: The Lord has weighed and measured you and you have been found NOT wanting!

The second thing the Lord wants you to know, in addition to being numbered, is that you have been weighed in the balances and have been found NOT WANTING! In fact, He just now dropped this into my spirit: this is ESPECIALLY true if you have been seeing duplicates, such as 10:10, 11:11, 12:12 and so forth. This means that you are balanced! You are right on track, doing exactly what He wants you to do!

There are some who still require minor adjustments, but at this point in our walks they are just that – MINOR. The scales do not tip much in either direction. We are exactly the way He designed us, for His purposes and for good.

We are right where he wants us, trained up and ready to perform, balanced and in optimum form…as He performs His word both for us and through us! So relax and enjoy the ride!

 

Upharsin (Peres): Divisions.  God is the God of multiplication! Since the Lord has numbered us, there will be no more loss, no more division. There will be unity where before there was separation. There will be no more “cliques” from which we are excluded, and loneliness will be a thing of the past. The Lord says He is adding unto us and taking nothing away from us.

I feel strongly that there are many who have been stripped down to nothing, pruned to the very core; but now, God, the great multiplier, is taking what little they have left and multiplying it back to them over and over again. Just as Jesus took the mud and spat in it, forming new material for eyes (see John 9:6), I see the Lord taking something simple in the lives of many, mixing it with something new and different, and coming up with manifold, revelatory results. The NEW is here!

There is absolutely NO WEAPON that will manage to disengage us from our God, no matter what it looks like, no matter what lies the enemy spouts. Because, just like Isaiah 54:17 says, the Lord is reproducing the ideal Servant of the Lord in us, multiplying the army of God. The Lord is imparting His righteousness, His vindication into us, multiplying our efforts and taking down enemy fortresses, even behind enemy lines! We have been numbered in the army of God! This is the heritage of the saints.

“But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.”  (Isaiah 54:17 AMPC).

Be blessed as you watch for the Lord’s new numbers patterns for you!

The White Horse is Already in the Clouds, Waiting for its Rider!

 

I heard the Lord say, “Are you ready for a word?” Eagerly, I responded, “Oh, YES, Lord!”  He then proceeded to download some blessings and strategies for the hour we are in.

Your mountaintops are greener and cleaner

Immediately I saw clouds at close range and the tops of mountains: lush, green and pristine. To my right, Jesus invited me in with the wave of an arm. I heard the Lord say, “Your mountaintops are greener and cleaner.” He is inviting us into new mountaintop experiences, more frequently than we have before and greener – smacking of new life. They will come more easily, without all the warring to get into the heavenlies as many of us have had to do for so long.  We will be living in these lush mountaintops in the natural, too – from glory to glory! The miracles in our lives will be clearly seen, and undeniably of God.

Yesterday deliverance; today infilling

Next, I heard the Lord say, “Yesterday deliverance; today infilling.” I know many will agree that we have been repeatedly fine-tuned over the last few months and years, continuously purged of sin and ungodly thought processes. We have been faced with situations that have put us into direct conflict with the enemy. These situations have forced us to choose either the enemy’s way or God’s way. Thankfully, most of us have passed that test! We have literally been delivered from evil! I felt the Lord was comforting us, letting us know that this period of great trial and testing is completed and that now we can enjoy being filled with the fruits of our labors – both in the spirit and in the natural! Receive the Holy Spirit!

“And having said this, He breathed on them and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit!(John 20:22 AMPC).

Put Peace between you!

I heard Him say, “Put peace between you.” Many of us still carry wounds that cause us to react instead of respond when others “push our buttons”. The Lord is giving us a strategy to overcome this time-wasting, stressful, hurtful tactic of the enemy. Whenever we are put into a situation that causes the old man to want to resurrect, don’t react. Instead, praise Jesus – literally! Open your mouth and begin to praise Jesus! Don’t let the enemy steal your peace. Put Jesus – our Prince of Peace – between you and whatever or whoever is trying to steal your peace. The enemy won’t hang around long when he is in the flow of heaven aimed directly at him by the power of our words!

 Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [[a]and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord,” (Eph 5:19 AMPC).

Trust Me, believe in Me and I will get you where you are going

I heard the Lord say, “Trust Me. Believe in Me. I will get you where you are going.” I knew exactly what He meant! My husband had a dream the other night that he was lost in the subway. A subway turnstile attendant told him that none of the train lines that he could choose would get him where he was trying to go. He went on to tell Darryl that he couldn’t walk there, it was too far. He couldn’t even drive there. The subway attendant told him that the only way he could get there was if the attendant took him there himself! This speaks volumes! The Lord was telling Darryl – and by extension, the rest of us – that he cannot get to his destination under his own power. It must be supernaturally, by God, and by God alone! Trust God in this season, and I mean, REALLY trust Him. Trust and Believe! He will get you where you need to be.

Jesus replied, This is the work (service) that God asks of you: that you believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger]. (John 6:29 AMPC).

The white horse is already in the clouds waiting for its rider

The next thing I saw was the sky again, but this time, it was from a distance, and the clouds were moving rapidly. They were pink and orange, streaming across the sky as if in time lapse photography. Yet, in the middle of the sky was a stationary cloud, one lone cloud that was not moving. It was slowly changing colors, turning from gray to white. As I pressed in closer to see what it was, at first all I could make out was wings. Pushing in to see what it was, I realized it was the shape of a horse – a white horse! What I heard next exploded in my spirit: “The white horse is already in the clouds, waiting for its rider!” Jesus is coming back! The time of His return is so close that His horse is already saddled up and waiting, ready for Him to mount up and ride!

Get your army boots on

I then heard, “Get your army boots on.” People of God, His warriors and army: Get into battle gear! Get your boots on! Get into alignment, into your troupe, company and regiment. Allow God to place you where He wants you to be, setting you down on the grass in groups of fifties and hundreds, just as when He fed the five-thousand.

“Then He commanded the people all to recline on the green grass by companies. So they threw themselves down in ranks of hundreds and fifties [with the [r]regularity of an arrangement of beds of herbs, looking [s]like so many garden plots].” (Mark 6:39-40 AMPC).

There is far more power in unity than we will ever know! We must be geared up and ready to battle when and where the Lord calls us in this season…shoulder to shoulder with whom He wants us.

Teach your children and shake the world!

Lastly, I heard the Lord say, “Teach your children. Family lines two and three generations deep will shake the world!” Choose to be a world shaker by teaching your children to be world shakers! Jesus turned it upside down and they can, too! Our children will one day lead the world. We have control of what that looks like by teaching them now the way that they should go, so that when they get there they will not depart from it (see Proverbs 22:6).

Thank you, Jesus, for speaking to your people! Lord, we choose to be earth shakers and world changers. We have our army boots on as we await your arrival on your white horse! We trust and believe in You as you lead and guide us where you want us to go. Thank you for the infilling and trips to the mountaintops to be with you. We love you Lord! Amen.
