I was reading in front of a window, basking in the warm sunshine, when I clearly heard the word “SABOTAGE.” It began to rattle me for just a brief moment when suddenly the Spirit of the living God began to envelope me with great peace. I lifted my hands and began to praise Him with peace in my heart, thankful that He reigns and loves through me.
Yet, what was this word “sabotage”? The dictionary says “action to hinder: an action taken to undermine or destroy somebody’s efforts or achievements.”
Then I began to weep and travail, for I knew what was happening. The Lord’s enemy was about to do something. Again, I felt a stillness engulf me; and I felt the urge to lift my hand once again and bless Jesus for all He has done. Little did I know a prophetic message was about to unfold.
A day or two later, I was speaking with a dear friend when suddenly I was caught up in a vision. What I saw I’d like to share, for it was powerful indeed!
“Come to the Table! Commune with Your God”
I saw a candlestick and I heard the Lord say, “This is your ministry.” Then I saw another, then another. I saw all these beautiful silver candlesticks become part of a candelabrum, lavish in style. I saw a table highly polished before me; it was long and beautifully adorned. I saw the candelabrum move toward the head of the table. Suddenly, I saw many candlesticks come together and they all became lavish candelabras and they also were on this highly polished table. Each candelabrum was moving across the table, which reminded me of the sea of glass spoken of in Revelation 21. I knew instantly I was not seeing something here in the below – it had to be in the Above.
I heard a voice move across the atmosphere crying with passion, “Come to the table! Commune with your God.” The celestial being was near for only a brief second.
I was standing now in a doorway looking at the table when I heard, “Come in, dear one.” I moved inside the door, and what I saw and heard was amazing. I began to see people sitting at the table; some were well-known, some were partially-known, some not known at all – but all were equal at the table.
I heard again the word sabotage. I was standing quite still when I saw HIM come to the table wearing a white and purple robe with a purple sash about His waist and an elaborate golden crown upon His head. Escorting Him were several angelic armor bearers who were holding shields that said “PRAISE” on them (even as I write, I can see this unfold now).
The entire assembly was still. He spoke only briefly: “I am releasing a new strategy to you. I am going to help you stop the sabotage that is taking place among you. You have been attacked, and you have been in pain.”
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” saith the LORD, “thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
“Yes, you will have to help one another and show UNITY like you have never been asked to before. I am asking you to make peace with your brothers and sisters. Stop talking about them; they are My children. I have called you all to come to this table and dine with Me.”
The Strategy to Win and Overcome this Attack of Sabotage
Suddenly, all sorts of food were on the table, yet no one touched it. Each person was looking intently at the Lord; He was looking longingly in each eye. I found myself at this table, and I wanted to hide beneath it. Before I could even think, I began to remember who is, who was, and those yet to be called to the table of the Lord.
I silently began to ask for forgiveness for words I may have spoken against a minister, the Church, and even our own nation. Tears are coming even now down my face: “My Father in Heaven, please forgive me.”
Then I noticed each one at the table was doing the same thing. We were called to a corporate repentance that Heaven was recording. Then He spoke again: “GO, and make disciples of ALL men. Go and live in unity. Go and be a friend to the outcast member of this faith-based society and bring them home with you next time you visit.”
My eyes were filled with tears of love and shame-of-self at the same time. I knew He had released a major strategy to WIN and OVERCOME this attack of sabotage. I then began to share this vision.
Prayer of Love
Now I pray:
1. Love covers a multitude of sin (1 Peter 4:8).
Dear Jesus, help me love like You!
2. Honor the leadership.
1 Timothy 5:17 The elders who direct the affairs of the Church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching.
Help me, Jesus, to show honor.
Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Dear Jesus, let me be a giver like never before!
4. Restoration for the family of God.
Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Help me, Jesus, to love my brothers and restore them with love and honor that they might fulfill the destiny on their lives and complete Your vision here in the below for man to be saved and ready to serve.
Victory in Unity We Win
I broke in prayer and I rose in victory. For I saw the shields once more; they said “Praise” on them. And my faith began to rise. I began to praise Jesus with a fresh victory in my own heart.
As I looked at these shields I noticed the table was clear; no one had eaten the food there. We had tasted the Lord’s goodness and we were changed – forever changed. Jesus showed us a redemptive moment once again, and it was for ALL!
So you, dear reader, I ask you to join me and let us stand together as ONE with Jesus. Let us join the heavenly rank of Peacemaker and show forth the praises of Him who loves us. Let us here in the below stand shoulder to shoulder and show the world we are ready to serve and obey our God of Heaven. Let’s put aside differences that cause confusion to the unchurched Christians and the unsaved.
We must join the ascension and gain our insight from above together at the table of God and commune with Him in prayer and with a fresh revelation from his Holy Writ. I am forever changed. I pray you will be as well.
Now I am reminded of that old song we used to sing in the ’80s, “Come and Dine”:
“Come and dine,” the Master calleth, “Come and dine;”
You may feast at Jesus’ table all the time;
He who fed the multitude, turned the water into wine,
To the hungry He calleth now, “Come and dine…”
Sabotage no more – victory in unity we win – praise Jesus!
