I saw a cloud in the sky and out of this cloud came what looked like a great spine over the earth. I heard the Lord say, “Located in the firmament comes descending a great vertebrae.” I then saw a human heart ripped down the center, rent, torn in to two parts. I heard the Lord say, “I am gifting my Sons and Daughters with a fortified spine, a back-bone, to carry my glory. This is my back-bone. It will adhere to the center of their yielded hearts, so it will be fortified to carry the weight of their destiny, releasing my magnificence to the world around them.”
I then saw the Sons and Daughters of God violently worshiping Him. The Spirit of worship was on them so strongly that they became like David, completely unhindered and unafraid to physically surrender their very body as an instrument of worship. I immediately knew that the violent worship caused their hearts to be split wide open before Him; yielded hearts, under the revelation of an open Heaven. But it didn’t stop there. Their violent worship was over-arching, covering every part of their life; how they handled their activities, their families, their finances, their possessions, their anointing, their calling- it was all worship. They were all-together violent for the ways of the Kingdom.
“From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.” (Matthew 11:12)
Then the Lord showed me how the Glory of God was among these worshipers and great crowds we’re throwing themselves at these worshipers. I heard the Spirit say, “When you put Jesus on display you will see the masses attracted to Him, for He is altogether lovely; He needs no introduction; He only needs to be seen.” “Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth, but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you. All nations will come to your light; mighty kings will come to see your radiance.”(Isaiah 60:2-3) I then heard the Lord ask these worshipers, “What do you want to see in the Glory? If you can see it in your heart right now, I will give it to you.” I heard their hearts crying out; some cried out for fire, some cried out for mass salvations, some cried out for creative miracles, signs and wonders, some cried out for revelation of mysteries, and some cried out for more glory!!! Each thing they spoke to in the Glory instantly came to pass with only one word; it was effortless. I then saw the worshipers immediately returning to violent worship as if the miracle didn’t even happen, though it did, because it was never about the miracle, it was always about Him. The miracles were secondary to His presence among them and they knew that. “Here’s the one thing I crave from God; The one thing I seek above all else; I want the privilege of living with him every moment in his house, Finding the sweet loveliness of his face, Filled with awe, delighting in his glory and grace.” (Psalms 27:4) I then saw the worshipers stop and lay flat on their faces before Him. They cried out to Him proclaiming, “We live to violently worship you; we live to violently yield to you, this is who we are, this is our occupation- on our face before you, forever and ever.” Then I heard the Lord say, “I’ve been waiting your whole life for this moment…” So everyone, exalt the Lord our God, face down before his glory-throne, for he is great and holy. (Psalms 99:5)
