Putting on Joy & Times of Refreshing
When we checked in with Heaven this morning, we asked to meet with Ezekiel, the ministry angel. He appeared and requested timed devices. We had taught on these weapons a few months prior. You can find the blog post on the CourtsOfHeavenWebinar.com website. He showed Donna an hourglass. Donna knew instinctively that Ezekiel was working in the time realm. He has been ordering the time realm from the outside of time realm.
Donna noted how good it felt to know he was doing that. Apparently, we really need Ezekiel doing that. She noted that this had to do with our calendar. She said, “This has to do with how we are moving among the events of the earth.” Ezekiel enjoined saying “And how all of those who connect with you are moving in time and in season of the era in which the Father has released you to be. Your books are tied to times and seasons. Your very being is tied to your soul for a very specific reason. Your soul is your humanity. You have a soul because your soul is tied to the time and space realm, but your spirit man transcends the time and space realm. It is needful that you operate from both planes.”
She recalled that Ezekiel needed timed devices which are a type of weapon that angels launch into the future or into circumstances.
“So,” Donna began, “I agree Father. I ask that the angel Ezekiel be given time devices as weapons against the enemy on behalf of LifeSpring International Ministries, on behalf of those who are aligned with this ministry, it's flow of revelation, it's portals, its outlets, its pools (which are realms of revelation), its angelic activity, and its release of the Kingdom of God.”
At that point Donna could see what looked like a closet that goes on for a long distance, like a walk-in closet with hanging clothes on both sides. It seemed to go on for a football field in length. Ezekiel said, “Well, maybe not a football field in length.” Donna asked, “Okay. How, how far does it go?”
Immediately he replied, “It goes the length of two semi-trailers.”
Donna further described what she was seeing, “On each side are hanging what look like coats and garments.”
The Putting on of Joy
Ezekiel continued, “The timed devices are for the wearing of new garments and the wearing of new garments is the putting on of joy. It is tied to the putting on of joy–the putting on of those garments delivered to you. That is why it is the length of two semi-trailers and comes out of the riches of the Father’s Warehouses of Heaven. Out of the riches of His resources are coming garments of joy, garments of celebration in whose you are and in who you are in Him–the righteous people of God. For those who seek after the Kingdom, righteous garments are scheduled for delivery. The garments of the righteous are the garments of those who walk in peace, love, joy (the fruit of the Spirit), also holiness–holiness without religion. These are for many. The reason we are seeing them is because they are being delivered–beginning now–to those who have eyes to see them and will wear them.
Ezekiel remarked about the intentionality it takes to put on a garment, the selection, and the putting on garment, and the decision to wear it. He said, “When you wear a garment, you decide to put it on, then you wear it. You walk in a presentation of what it carries. These are robes of righteousness.”
Ezekiel used phrases to help us understand that the Father is releasing His pleasure. He is the good Father who clothes His children in heavenly power, operating in miracles, receipt of riches, the receiving of calm and peace amid a chaotic thing going on around you. He said, “You walk in this. You walk at a steady pace because you are not being shaken while other things around you are being shaken. But you are not. You are under the mantle–the garment of God. You are wearing what has come out of Heaven. You are wearing what the natural realm does not see. You are wearing the unseen.
“In the unseen you're wearing the benefit of His nearness. You are wearing the benefit of the knowledge of who He is. You are wearing the steady release of revelation. You wear the garment, or you walk in the garment because you have looked for it and you have found it by your faith, by your belief, by your trust, by your committed knowledge that God is true–that He is true and that He does not lie. And that He releases good things.
“As you wear these garments you are not being shaken. You are not troubled. Your heart is not troubled even though natural sight may see troubling things. You are sturdy, steady, stabilized and rock solid. You, by the wearing of the garments delivered by Heaven, have a different come from regarding external events that may happen all around you. You have a sense of a piercing steadiness and calmness. You are able to laugh. You are not freaking out. To wear this as a son or daughter of God is good. But there are timed moments where Heaven delivers these to the people of God, that they may put them on, that they may endure without taking the brunt of that which others are having to endure, because this garment assists and aids your journey.
“You are enveloped in the peace of God, His love for you, His knowledge of you. And by this wearing of these garments you, to the natural realm, the physical realm, you sound different, you look different, you do not look like what is going on in the world. You do not look like, sound like, or express your presentation as the world is because you have received these garments and are wearing them.
“As you walk into these garments, they all have a similar color scheme. They are solid colors, but in the spectrum of the rainbow, they are in they are in the range of what you might at first just think of as a purple, but they go from indigo to violet, but violet being a rosier purple, or reddish purple.”
Donna asked, “Father, Holy Spirit, what is my work here to receive these?”
She then began to say, “I invite Ezekiel, his commanders, and ranks to use timed devices in such a manner that the delivery of these garments in time and in season are delivered to the saints, are put on the saints by the hands of angels and are worn by them to achieve the purpose for which they were sent.
“I ask angels at the right and proper time to deliver to those who are related to this ministry and this revelation portal, this outlet, this pool, that they may be assisted in putting on the garments that the Father has delivered and that they may keep them on for the purpose, which they were sent in season and out of season.
“I rejoice Father, at the delivery of these garments to your people.
“I am interested in knowing when I'm wearing it and I ask my angels to help me know when I received it and when I'm wearing it. I will wear it by faith. I believe that it is coming. I am agreeing with the Father to wear them when they come. I thank you, Father, that they are coming. I thank you that you showed them to me. I received them into the earth realm for myself and for the ministry, all our staff, all our audience, all of those who are sowing into this ministry, all those who have aligned with the revelation that comes from this ministry. And I thank you, Father, that Your Kingdom is glorified. The King is glorified and the purpose for which they are sent is going to manifest and be seen.”
Continuing the engagement, Ezekiel said he is working with the angel and Deb Myers region.
There is a ranking angel that he is aware of. He has knowledge of the ranking angel of the land. He is happy to be in league with that angel and Ezekiel says this with great respect toward that angel.
We asked Ezekiel, “Is there anything that you need from us about that?”
“No,” he replied. He was just letting us know that he is in contact with that angel, and he enjoys his network there.
Ezekiel said, “In that region, there will be a veil that is being pulled back. This is something to do with eastern Missouri. I see it like this. There are a lot of people praying from Colombia toward the St. Louis area. Interestingly, it does not really include the St. Louis city limits, but those that are outside of the city limits. There are a lot of praying saints there.” Ezekiel said, “There's a lot of praying saints who are still in darkness. The ongoing work is to free the vision so the saints can walk from their spirit and do exploits.” The veil that is being pulled back is some sort of a spiritual blockage on the eyes and ears of the saints.
Donna noted, “It does not feel like quite the classic religious spirit that I am used to sensing. There is a nuance of difference. It feels more mixed with Leviathan.”
She prayed, “I thank God for what He is going to do in the region of eastern Missouri. I thank you Father for the eyes and the ears of your people being liberated to who Jesus really is, what the Kingdom of God, how the Kingdom of God really works, what the outplay of the demonstration of the power of God is. And I thank you for that. I thank you for returning righteousness to the saints that is totally without religion. It is minus religion.”
Ezekiel asked, “What would that be?”
Donna replied, “I'm unsure but I think it's operating in power.”
Ezekiel nodded in agreement. “It is power demonstrations of the Kingdom of God by the saints of God, with those operating in league with angels.” “Rise up, rise up, rise up.” Ezekiel says to the people that are associated with that area. It is Jody and Robert's area. It is Deb and Larry's area. It is right there. I feel like Ezekiel is saying they must walk with their spirit forward. Rise up, rise up, rise up, look beyond, see the spiritual. Keep pressing, for this is an outpouring that the Father desires to give. In fact, as Ezekiel is saying, “He's already given it. It's just that we're learning to walk in it more.”
Times of Refreshing
Having concluded meeting with Ezekiel, we asked to meet with Lydia (our ministry advisor in Heaven) who came in saying, “Grace, grace, grace. Grace, to the Body of Jesus Christ. Grace, to those who are learning who they are. Grace to the Bride of Yeshua. These are times of refreshing and grace.
Reach up with your spirit and receive the times of refreshing.
In response, Donna prayed, “I reach up with my spirit and I receive the times of refreshing.” She began to describe what she was understanding, “The times of refreshing of the Lord are very pointed lights. They are pointed moments where some refreshings of the Lord are. We reach up with our spirit and we receive them in the spirit by faith. Then, according to how they are written into the lives of His saints, they manifest in the physical realm and then to our physical flesh. To our soul it feels like an outpouring, an ease, a breathing point, and a discernible knowledge that you are moving by God's power through a circumstance because you have previously pressed through to see a time of refreshing and you have received it in the spirit realm so that it will manifest in the natural realm.”
Lydia continued, “Imagine the sons and daughters of God releasing previously obtained refreshing to those in the physical realm around them. To them, they become the fountain. They become the place of the gushing of His waters as it is released to those in front of them who have not known how to do this.”
Donna suddenly began thinking of the story in Scripture (Matthew 25) of the parable about the virgins that had need of oil and while waiting on the bridegroom, they fell asleep. Then they were roused from sleep. The wise virgins had received enough oil, the others did not have enough, and they said to those with oil, ‘Let us buy oil from you.’ And those with oil said, ‘No, no, no, we can't do that. You should have gotten that taken care of.’
Donna continued, “If you try to just see that parable without previous teachings, I think Lydia is saying that the people of God who, out of time, but in the spirit, believe and receive the refreshings of God, then when that refreshing is needed by those around you, you have enough to release because you have already received it. You have quantities of it, and you release it to others.”
Donna noted, “I don't know how you release it to others exactly. Probably by your words of peace and your demeanor and your deeds of calmness amid a certain situation. But it is God's goodness that He has a remnant who has received the refreshing in the spirit so that it can be released in the time realm.
“If I have been given times of refreshing in the spirit, freely I receive, and then freely I give. I release it when the Holy Spirit is saying, ‘Release the time of refreshing. Release the refreshing that you received. Release it.’”
Donna prayed, “Father teach us how to be vessels that know how to release, teach us how to be vessels that release in the appropriate times.”
Lydia explained, “It is not released from the soul realm. It is released from the spirit of the human, and this is the part you are learning. You are learning to release it, not from the soul, but from the spirit. The quantity of the knowledge of what you have gained in the receiving of the time of the refreshing is important. You must learn to release it from your spirit to others.
“The soul has been compensating for this in the spirit because we have not understood the difference between soul and spirit, so you have tried to release to others from the soul. They are calling what they are releasing a refreshing. It is refreshing through the soul and yet, it is flat. It is icky. It is icky AND it is sticky. But when you release it from the spirit of a man to the person in front of you or to the audience in front of you, or to the circumstance in front of you, it flows out of a man into a circumstance and the waters of Heaven manifest in the unseen realm around the circumstance.”
Donna said, “We are going to learn this Father. We ARE going to get this. We ARE going to know how to operate in this. Thank you for the release of this. You are releasing it to humanity through the sons of God. It is like we have been deceived to operate in judgment where when we released judgment, judgment was not what was called for.
Refreshing is what was needed.
We are the connector point to receive that refreshing.
“To release it. It is spiritual. It is very, very spiritual, but it will have a manifested effect–the release of refreshing, of times of refreshing, the spiritual essence of His goodness, His ability, His kindness, His inclusion of His love toward humanity.
Times of refreshing are a nuance of His Glory.
“They are a facet of His Glory. They are like a gemstone that has many facets. One of the facets of His Glory is times of refreshing and times of refreshing are needed. The Father supplies these times of refreshing through His saints–those who seek after His Kingdom.
You can become a time of refreshing carrier as you have received times of refreshing.
Then times of refreshment will come from the presence of the Lord, and he will again send you Jesus, your appointed Messiah. Acts 3:20
“Then release times of refreshing to others who need it. They may need it even if they do not know they need it. They may need it, but they do not know how to get it. They may need it because they have never understood they could have it.
“It comes from Heaven. It comes out of the supernatural realm. It comes out of the spirit realm. They have looked with their natural eyes and have tried to receive it in the natural when you need it from the spirit. You need to really receive it and then release it to others–to their spirit.
“A dry spirit is a spirit within a man that needs times of refreshing. This wets the spirit. It waters it. It supports it. I am not talking about the soul. I am talking about the spirit.
“Once the spirit is watered, refreshed, and filled, the spirit of that man has more functionality to begin to direct that person's life according to heavenly mandates, books and scrolls in Heaven, operating with angels, piercing darkness, walking in truth, and even in wholeness.
When the spirit is refreshed the soul can rest.
The soul is designed to know how to rest. When the spirit of the man is in front, awakened, watered, refreshed, operating, perceiving, hearing, the soul can rest and then the body can rest.
The body can experience stasis. The body can find stasis.
A body system out of stasis has a soul that is not at rest and a spirit that is dry.
You are to release refreshing to the spirit of the man or the person.
Donna suddenly had a vision of a spirit being watered. It was like the spirit of the man was being painted with water, with colors, and watered with sprinklers, fountains, streams, pools, rivers, swimming pools, all types of bodies of water. (She did not see the ocean, just the other bodies of water).
Lydia continued, “These are the things that water the spirit, but the spirit has to be watered so it is very wet, soaked, and satiated. Then the soul finds rest. It rests in its duty. It knows its place, and the soul's emotions come into an alignment. This soul alignment looks like a braid of three chords–maybe that is the DNA. Then the body finds stasis.
How the Enemy Works
Lydia explained, “The enemy works the opposite way. He seeks to cause your spiritual senses to fail. He seeks to convince your mind that you are not spiritual or to force your eye to see the natural realm only, your ear to hear or concentrate on the horizontal plane, never to ascend, never to have a thought that it CAN ascend, never to have thought that its internal design is first supernatural, meaning above the natural, or outside of the natural realm.
This limits you to operation from soul and body and the dryness of the spirit.”
Donna began to see creatures that looked like dogs drinking from a black putrid pond. Asking what it meant, Lydia said, “It represented a human spirit drinking from darkness–from the satanic.
“You must drink from the light. You must be refreshed from the light. You must turn your eyes to the light and stop looking at the darkness. When you are forced to look at the dark, Satan wins. These are not eternal wins, but he wins in the moment. He wins a skirmish if he can get you to look at darkness. Some people fall into error because they are simply looking into the darkness to figure it out. Then their soul is affecting their spirit and their spirit drinks from all that black putridness. You were not designed that way.
You were designed, and Jesus came, that you might have opportunity to be refreshed in the spirit–be watered in the spirit.
You have no need to go drinking from putrid ponds.
Suddenly Donna exclaimed, “It is like the biggest trick of the devil, isn't it, to cause you to try to figure out the enemy by looking in his camp? Then you fall in, and you are drinking from that gross stuff. That is just not how God wanted to do it. That is eating from the wrong tree. That is trying to figure out the spirit realm from the natural and from the fallen angel Lucifer who operates in this world and in the lower dimensions of this world.”
Lydia continued, “But you are Children of Light and the Spirit of God waters you. He waters your heart. Let Him water you and seek after Him. Seek after the light, the goodness, the kindness, the willingness of Father to give everything and anything that you need. His arm is around your shoulder, His hand is at your back, His angelic hosts are at your beckoning. Look at the light. Look at the light.
Receive the refreshing in your spirit that you might stand as sons and daughters of God in the earth plane.
“When you do that, your body, soul and spirit has now been infiltrated. Your composition is different. You walk around on the earth in physical flesh vessels that is so different because you have looked at the light. You have looked at the Father. You have accessed through Jesus. You have received who He is. You honor Him as King. You love Him as the Bridegroom. You worship Him for His mission is accomplished. But you also become friends with Him so that you walk as new compositions in this realm because of what He did, which you could not, had He not done what He did. Yet He did it anyway so you can walk as a differently comprised or composed being.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Lydia said, “Isn't that good news? You are not limited to the physical plane. By faith you can be refreshed by the Spirit of God, by the times of refreshing, by the receipt of things from the Spirit from the Kingdom of God which is unseen. Believe you want more of this. You simply believe more. Ask more. But you must direct your spirit. You can direct your spirit to receive.”
Donna prayed, “I direct my spirit to receive of my Father, of His Son, His Spirit, of His Kingdom, of His angels, and of His refreshing.
