I hear the Lion of Judah roaring over the Upstate.
In time spent with the Lord recently, I could hear the Lion of Judah roaring over the Upstate of South Carolina. I could see with the eyes of my heart a huge, majestic lion standing atop of Table Rock belting out his authoritative roar throughout the region. His roar could be heard for miles!
I believe this is a declaration to the Upstate in 2018. The Lion of Judah is present in your current circumstance. 2017 was a hard year for some of us but in 2018 the Lion of Judah is presently presiding over you!
In His Roar
In His roar I heard His authority. Authority over this region. This year will be a year of fulfilled promise, for He has authority and He is roaring over the Upstate. Whatever it is you are believing for in 2018, take heart for His authority brings fulfillment to your promises!
In His roar I heard freedom to the captives. There is a move coming to the Upstate that will bring freedom to the captives, freedom to the bound. The roar of the Lion of Judah has caused the shackles to fall, prison doors to open, and hard hearts to be softened. Believing mothers be encouraged. Praying fathers be encouraged. They’re coming home! To the churches.. prepare the way! There is a move coming through the door of availability. Make yourselves available in 2018! When the Lion of Judah roars, all eternity makes way for the coming King. Upstate, I hear “Make way! Make way! The King is coming! The King is here!”
In His roar I heard endless praise. “May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of his suffering” shall be a banner over us. The Lamb that was slain and the Lion that roars is worthy. He is worthy of crazy, endless praise. He is worthy of Extravagant devotion. He is worthy of the crazies and the outcast. He is worthy! To those of you that feel different from normal Christianity.. To those of you that do not fit into church mediocrity.. To those of you who burn with an unending fire for the King.. To those of you who are longing for more..
GET READY! GET READY! GET READY! I SEE THE LORD PREPARING TO PARADE HIMSELF THROUGH OUR STREETS.
In His roar I heard a call for preparation. I could hear the longing of the Lord for us to prepare our hearts for a move of the Spirit in the Upstate of South Carolina. A different move from before.. A move to stay.. A move of habitation amongst those longing, hoping, and believing for more! This move will birth a unique tribe of people full of fire in their eyes, a consecrated tribe. This will be a people disgusted by what they once enjoyed, a people hungry for the Lord and the Lord alone. I see compromise and complacency being thrown to the side by the people who hear and recognize, obey and follow the roar of the Lion of Judah.
I pray that the Lord would open your eyes and ears to see and hear the Lion of Judah roaring over the Upstate this year. I declare that this region shall be a region wholly given over to the presence of the King.
Father, raise up a people who will lay down compromise and complacency in 2018 and forevermore. Raise up a people who will hunger for the more of you and will never settle in their pursuit for you.
May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of his suffering from the people of the Upstate!
