During worship recently, Jesus called me to “come up” there (see Revelation 4:1, 11:12). He grabbed me by the hand, and like Peter Pan, I saw myself flying through the air behind him. We landed in a desert place, and I actually heard my feet hit the ground with a “thud”. Looking off to my left I saw Him, sitting on a camel. He wore His golden crown and robes, but just sat there on this camel, totally still. In my vision, I looked at Him, and heard myself say, “Why is He on a camel?”
He told me to look down. I saw camel feet standing on the sand. The sand was GOLD – billions and billions of grains of sand, made of pure gold. I looked up over at Jesus again, and just then – at that exact moment – I heard the worship leader say, “Let’s praise Him! Let’s just stop and praise Jesus!” Instantly, as soon as he said that and we started to praise Him in the earth realm, I saw Jesus smile. He climbed down off the camel and handed me the reins, saying, “I’m not giving it to you. I am loaning it to you…to steward.”
I believe this was not just a word for me personally, although it definitely was for me, also. I believe this is a corporate word for us all.
We have literally been “TRAINING for REIGNING” in the desert place.
I heard myself hit the ground with a thud as we landed in a desert place. Desert places are somewhere that we LEARN our authority and how to do this thing we call Christianity. “And He said to them, ‘As for you, come away by yourselves to a deserted place, and rest a while,’” (Mark 6:31). We don’t learn how to “walk the walk” on the mountaintops. It’s in the dry, desert places that we develop our skills, our character, and our relationship with God, where we learn how to rest in Him.
I believe that the body of Christ, as a whole, has been in a desert place, learning the ropes of reigning. We have literally been “TRAINING for REIGNING”. We have all been in training, being raised up in righteousness, each of us in a different position to make a complete body. Each of us has had our homework to do, our assignments to fulfill, and our boots on the ground in different areas.
Thusly, in the vision, I hit the ground hard. I heard the THUD. I landed in the desert place, to hone my relationship with Him, and to learn my identity and authority. I believe many of us have had that experience! Many of us have hit the ground hard, as we have been hit hard by the enemy. This has been good for us, although at the time, it surely did not seem like it!
I believe that’s why he showed me standing upon grains of pure-gold sand. This golden sand is symbolic of lots of things, including people, revelation, multiplication, and of course wealth. His revelation always makes us wealthy, rich in the knowledge of Him and the Kingdom. We now have a much richer understanding of the Kingdom and how it operates than we ever have before!
God has given us camels’ feet!
As I looked down on these grains of pure, golden revelation, rich in His vast resources, I did not see my own feet. I saw camel feet standing upon the grains of gold. He gave me camel feet! In the natural, camel feet spread wide, preventing the camel from sinking into the sand as it travels. Camel feet are symbolic of walking in, and being seasoned in, the things of the Spirit and not getting “stuck” in the things of the world. I believe that God was saying he has trained us to walk above our circumstances – by faith and not by sight (see 2 Corinthians 4:7), striding boldly to His throne of Grace (see Hebrews 4:16), not turning to the right or to the left (see Proverbs 4:27). He has trained us to rely and depend on Him, and not on the world; to be in it, but not of it, according to His word.
“They are not of the world (worldly, belonging to the world), [just] as I am not of the world,” (John 17:16).
When Praises go UP, Blessings come Down!
As we started to praise Jesus, he smiled, climbed down off His camel and handed us the reins. This was His own camel, the one He was riding upon. His camel, symbolic of the realm of the impossible made possible; of heavenly, supernatural miracles and untapped, limitless resources – to allow us to be like Him in these last days, “…because as He is, so are we in this world,” (1 John 4:17). This camel, Jesus’ own camel, symbolic of an unfathomably supernatural ministry, possible only through His Holy Spirit!
“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts,” (Zechariah 4:6).
We must remember that this is not our camel. It is not about us, or even for us. Rather, it is solely on loan, given to us to steward, for Kingdom purposes. This camel, this ‘ship of the desert’, has been given to His body to bear cargo and fruit for the ages.
I believe that Jesus is giving us His camel to steward in 2018! Praise Him today! As the praises go up, the blessings come down! As we praise Him, He will hand over His camels of authority, of supernatural ministry, of miraculous provision and overwhelming, overcoming strength. Praise Him today! Make Him smile and hand over the ‘reigns’!
Many unprecedented blessings and incalculable abundance in 2018!
