Recently I heard the words: “Echoing Heaven”. I was startled at first, but realizing that Jesus was conveying some truth to me, I started to ask Him:
“Speak Lord, I am listen.”
A matter of fact, I postured myself to listen what the Lord was saying to me. I believe it is vital to hear what the Spirit of God is saying and to follow through with the insight He gives me. It is a fact that earth collides with heaven, because we as the Father’s beloved are praying for His will to be done and for His kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven. Hence heaven comes and we as heavenly and spiritual beings are releasing the sounds of heaven here on earth.
As I was listening, I suddenly saw myself during a time in my childhood in the mountains. As a family we would regularly spent time in the Alps, in a high mountain sometimes in the region of South Germany and other times in Northern Italy. There I heard a real echo for the very first time.
It was fun! But only until I heard a thunder storm in the middle of the night in the mountains. It was like rapid fire, because the thunder would echo and the sound continued on and on. I was hiding under the covers.
I realized that this rapid fire is much like our intercession to the enemy’s ears. It is literally blasting his ear drums. Let’s continue this kind of prayer to overcome and prevail.
YOUR VOICE IS HIS ECHO
We are His echo and may He trumpet His message through us. May it go from where we are to the nations. Tugged away inside the Father’s glory, we are surrounded by His Spirit and we become an echo of the heavenly glory realm reverberating and expanding on earth.
Kingdom manifestations are released as miracles, signs and wonders. Our Father is the Creator and He created all things and desires to demonstrate His glory realm of heaven here on earth. We know and perceive that there are no limitations in His glory and everything is easy in His glory.
Let your love echo through me, Jesus! Let Your kingdom come in its fullness, and let it expand and be seen all over the eartH. There is no shortage of His Glory in Heaven and there will be no shortage of it on the earth.
Most likely, you have been in a situation where conditions were just right for your voice to echo. An echo is the repetition of sound caused by a reflection of sound waves; when conditions are right, an echo will be the result
In Genesis God spoke: “LET THERE BE LIGHT.” He made a sound and the sound carries frequency, and out of this sound spoken forth, Light appeared flooding the earth.
Our Heavenly Creator has spoken everything into existence. There is a mighty power unleashed when The King of Kings, The Ancient of Days, Our Creator has spoken.
I sense that heaven has and continues to release an echoing sound through His righteous ones. Let me explain
Acts 2:2, a familiar scripture depicting the Day of Pentecost power being released on those waiting in the upper room, we find the word “sound” in the Greek, from which we extract the English word echo. Furthermore, in the Wuest translation of the Bible, we find the following wording in Acts 2:2.
“And suddenly there came an echoing sound out of heaven as of a wind borne along violently.”
This echoing sound from heaven was sent by the Father. It was the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, who was promised to those 120 waiting on the Day of Pentecost with anticipation and expectation with hearts wide open. They not only heard the sound from heaven, they also received the tongues of fire and their spirits echoed this sound from heavenly places into the nations. It was the beginning of the baptism of the Spirit and fire. The world was changed and has never been the same again.
You are seated in heavenly places right now and therefore you do not have to wait. God desires to echo the heavenly sound through you into this earth. Where you are, there is heaven.
GOD’S KINGDOM ADVANCING
God’s kingdom is advancing and we can be those ambassadors of Christ,
who partake in this endeavor. Releasing His glory as glory carriers, arising
and shining for His Light has come and His glory has risen upon us. There
is much darkness all around, but we have the authority and anointing to
echo heavens sound and glory light through the valleys and mountains.
After all, the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon and in us! (see Isaiah 61 and Luke 4).
Thus speaks the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saying “I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon. Within two full years I will bring back to this place all vessels of the Lord’s house….
4 And I will bring back to this place ….the king with all the captives of Judah who went to Babylon, says the Lord, for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.
6 …to bring back all who were carried away captive…”
In this hour, those children of the Lord, who have been carried away by the world system and the religious system, are returning to the Father’s table. They are coming out of the darkness into His marvelous light, where they belong, because He is destroying the false yoke, which was placed upon them.
Jesus Christ has already made the way, because He is the Way, Truth and Live and He is the Door. By His blood, He has destroyed all chains of bondage.
But some of His children, have turned back to the law and have been bewitched and entised to turn again to the weak and beggarly elements to which they have become entangled and are in bondage again. (see Galatians 4:9)
The Holy Spirit is wooing and causing those to come back to the Lord’s table. Many have been interceding for loved ones, family, friends and neighbors to return home to the Father’s heart.
The Father wants ALL of His children around HIS table!
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
Galatians 5:4 You have become enstranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law, you have fallen from grace.
vs. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor un-circumcision awails anything, but faith working through love.
It never pays to try to finish in the flesh (carnal mind) what was started in the Spirit. Instead remember His promise that, He who began a good work in you, will complete it.
Please read: Galatians 3:1-14
Some have been bewitched and have gone astray. Instead of walking in the Spirit of God, they are walking in the flesh and are reaping from it.
It is high time to awaken and put on Christ. The Lord has destroyed the yoke of bondage and many captives will be set free.
We will see mass deliverances both for the saved and unsaved.
Be prepared to welcome those who have been set free and be an instrument in the hand of God to stand firm in the liberty, because it is for freedom that Christ has set us free!

DAY 14 Daily Devotional on the Father’s Great Love-
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
BLAZING FIRE OF HIS LOVE
Calling the youth, calling the children, calling the young adults and calling the mature…
Come to His banqueting table, His banner over you is love, and receive His unfailing, unconditional love from the Lover of your soul, Jesus Christ!
As His love is crashing over you, I pray you will feel His heartbeat and feel His passion in a fresh and new way! Releasing all old garments and put on His new garments, a garment of praise instead of heaviness, the oil of joy instead of mourning.
Daniel 7:9 As I looked, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze.
10a A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him….
This river of fire flowing from His throne is still releasing His fire and I sense this is the moment to remember that out of our inner most being, rivers of living water is flowing.
You may question, wy do I need to remember? In Daniel 7:10 it says there is a river of fire flowing, coming out from before the throne of God, which is flaming with fire. A river never stops flowing, it is always moving and we are moving in the River of God and continuously receive from Him, even the overflow.
Have you been baptized in the Holy Spirit and Fire?
Partake continously of His goodness. Even His mercy and loving kindness is new every morning. The Father’s grace is sufficient to always walk as overcomers in Christ Jesus.
Today I stumbled across a song called “Wildfire” and I knew it was a mystery, I had to search out. What was the Lord trying to tell me?
I found the word wildfire in the Message Bible:
Acts 2:3 Then, like a wildfire, the Holy Spirit spread through their ranks, 4 and they started speaking in a number of different languages as the Spirit prompted them.
Here another scriptures:
I have come to ignite a fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! Luke 12:49
Jesus was looking forward to the Pentecost Fire. The tongues of fire placed upon each of those in the Upper Room. He also said: I’ve come to change everything, turn everything rightside up—how I long for it to be finished! Do you think I came to smooth things over and make everything nice? Not so. I’ve come to disrupt and confront! This is out of the Message Bible (Luke 12:50-51).
Our God is a consuming Fire and the God of Elijah, Who answers by Fire, is desiring for his Bride to be Red-Hot, not lukewarm. When He was saying this to the church in Laodicea, Revelation 3:16, He knew they would understand what He meant. In those days, the Laodicean built an aqueduct to bring cold water down from the mountains. When it left the mountain it was ice cold and delicious, but by the time it traveled through the hot aqueduct, the water became lukewarm..tasting horrible. Luke warm mineral water has a terrible taste.
Furthermore, they decided to take the water from the Hot Springs to their city, but by the time it got there, it was no longer hot. It had become lukewarm.
When the Lord said to them, “You are neither hot nor cold,” they knew what this meant. They had been drinking lukewarm water for a long time and it was sickening.
Jesus wanted them to be on fire, with passionate fervor and turning the world up-side down, or should we say, right side up!
Let me end with this scripture in Romans 12:11 the Amplified Bible:
Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord.
Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
It is all inside of you….the incorruptible seed of Jesus Christ, the Kingdom of God is within, and His Holy Spirit lives in your born-again Spirit. Even as He is able to do infinitely more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us. It’s the resurrection power, the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead. (see Ephesians 3:20)
Jesus Christ in us is the Hope of Glory. His hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. (see Romans 5:5).
Jesus is the Light of the World and He said: “You are the light of the world.” Furthermore, the scripture tells us we are a city on a hill. Just imagine at night this city on a hill lights up the entire region with all it’s lights shining out from the houses. We are a spiritual house in the city of God and shine forth His Glory and Love.
How about consciously BE LIGHT TO ILLUMINIATING DARKNESS AROUND US?
The city of God is right where you are, it’s a place of refuge, it’s the strong tower that is inside of you. It is all within you and you can grab ahold of it, because you are the city of God and you can spread it.
Furthermore, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father, who is in heaven. It will leak out…a contagious presence of God wherever you are.
Today I am focusing on the “love chapter” in 1 Corinthians 13. My idea is to read the love chapter and then look at the questions below and answer each one. Perhaps this will serve you to discover more about yourself. We have focused on loving the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, our neighbors and now let’s dig a bit deeper inside to discover more about ourself.
What 3 things matter most to you?
What do you value most spiritually?
What people are most important to you?
What possessions do you value most?
What do you feel you need to accomplish to make your life worthwhile?
When you pass on, how would you like to be remembered?
What are two things you could do each day, to make every day special?
What in your life are you most grateful for?
After you answer all of these questions, go over them again and you will find clues to answer what you discovered about yourself.
Write about: What you discovered about yourself…
THE GIFT OF LOVE
1 Corinthians 13: 1-13 RSV
1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; 5 it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; 10 but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood. 13 So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Now say your name in the place of “Love” when you read out loud the above scripture…make it personal.
Jesus says, “Love me with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.” When the Father breathed the breath of life into man, he became a living soul. (see Genesis 2:7b) In some Bible translations “living soul” is translated “living being” or “living creature”.
As it is said in Matthew 16:26 RSV: 26 For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life? Or what shall a man give in return for his life?
Matthew 10:28 says 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
As lovers of God we are learning how to love God with all of our heart, mind, soul
and strength and love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Jesus does. Following His lead by forsaking all, stepping away from the pull of the world system and instead keeping a vibrant life in Him.
Being saturated and overflowing with the love of God, will cause us to flood others with the same love and comfort we have received from our Heavenly Father. After all, the Holy Spirit is our comforter and the One, who comes alongside of us.
LAWLESSNESS VS LOVE REVOLUTION
Because of the lawlessness, the love of many will be growing cold, as a sign of the times we are in. (see Matthew 24:12)
I can’t afford to be offended and become bitter in my soul, because of the signs of the time, to the point where I close off my heart and ultimately my love grows cold. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear…what can man do to me? It is vital to trust in the Lord not people or circumstances (see Psalm 118). David’s soul trusted in God and he took refuge in the shadow of the Lord’s wings. He remained there until the calamity passed by.
The Lord is pouring out His love and there will be a love revolution. He is awakening us to His pure love.
As we walk in His love and manifest the kingdom of God as Jesus did; miracles, signs and wonders will be released. As Jesus said: they will know you are My disciples, because of the love you have one for another.
“WE ARE ONE IN THE SPIRIT, WE ARE ONE IN THE LORD”
THE SON OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
The Son of righteousness is arising with healing in His wings (see Malachi 4). Run to the Lord and not from Him in these times. Jesus has all the answers you need and when you boldly enter into the Throne room of grace, seeking His face, He will show you things to come and He will give you answers to your questions.
Today I am encouraging you to ponder the below scriptures as you are spending time with your Beloved:
1 John 4:7-11
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and everyone who
loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know
God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that he might live through
Him.In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His
Son to be the propitiation for our sins.Beloved, if God so loved us, we also
ought to love one another. “
1 John 4:17-21 “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.We love Him because He first loved us. 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? And this commandment we have from Him; that he who loves God must love his brother also.”
DAY 10 Daily Devotional on the Father’s Great Love
We are getting closer to the end of the 14 day focus on the Father’s Great Love and today we are focusing on:
FATHER’S LOVE VS SELF-PRESERVATION
Jesus was tempted by the devil after he was led by the Spirit into the wilderness (see Matthew 4:1). To be tempted means being tested or tried.
We all experience such testing in our life. In such times of testing, all the façade, the masks we wear will fall to the way side and the true inner self will emerge. It will be revealed whether we are a lover of God and true disciple of the Lord, living by a higher law, or a self-loving, self-centered, carnal life, living by the law of self-preservation and self-ambition.
Jesus experienced what was stomach hunger, but His true hunger was not only for spiritual bread, but for fellowship in the Father’s Light and love. (see Matthew 4:2).
When Jesus was hungry, He was tempted by the devil to turn stones into bread. But He, as the Living Bread, answered and said, It is written, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God…” (see Matthew 4:3-4). He knew the true hunger of the soul was something only the Father Himself can satisfy. Furthermore, He laid His life down willingly to fulfill the will of the Father – He sacrificed His Physical Life to give us Life, and Life more abundantly.
My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. John 4:34
We can crave “His divine love” and a key to victory is having the ability to wait upon the Lord. This is true hunger, not for securing bread that man hungers after, but after the eternal bread, His body, which was broken for us. So very often, we are tempted to exercise faith for the preservation of self, but we lack the desire to wait on the Lord for His eternal Bread of Life that transforms us from the inside out into the image of Christ.
Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:5
For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things. Psalm 107:9
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
Pondering these scriptures while waiting upon the Lord, can bring much increase in your spiritual life. Have you had your “special time” with your Heavenly Father today?
How can it be that we can love on one level and hate on another?
At times I ask what is really in my heart?
My thoughts go to what David, the Psalmist, cried out, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
It’s a pure heart, where every bitter root has been pulled out, that will nurture the fruit of the Holy Spirit. An impure heart, however, harbors or shows forth the fruit of the flesh. (see Galatians 5)
Furthermore, we should have an undivided love. No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Matthew 6:24
My journey towards maturity has brought major changes, healing and intimacy. The finger of God has been penetrating, relentless and constant in working on my heart.
We are expected to walk in accordance with the great commandment, as Jesus explained: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Luke 12:30-31 Furthermore, the expectation of a believer exceeds the Ten Commandments into the realm of intimacy with the Father and walking with the Holy Spirit. This is because, when we walk in the Spirit, we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh, which are also those things listed in the Ten Commandments.
There is more at stake besides obedience – it is about relationship, which is not truly satisfied or fulfilled until it is intimate. True intimacy occurs only when there is an absence of self-obsession or self-absorption. I can have true intimacy when I rest in Him, and trust Him without struggling or striving. The matter of trust (or can also be called faith when pertaining to the Father) is crucial. Trust the Lord with all your heart!
The Father’s Desire
The Father desires to see our face, revealed from behind our mask (see Song of Solomon 2:14, Acts 10:34).
It is about having fellowship and communion with the Father as He did with Adam and Eve (see Genesis 3:8).
He wants our undivided love.. after all He is a jealous God (Exodus 34:14).
Ask yourself and write down…what are the things the Father desires from me?
