In The Image Of His Glory Ministries

A Massive Release of Angelic Forces Vision

By Susan O’Marra




Late last night while talking with a friend on the phone, I saw a massive influx of heavily armed angels with massive swords descending to the earth. These angels had ancient swords that were heavy and had ancient writing etched into their blades. They had massive chests and massive arms and were being sent all over the earth.


As I watched, I saw that each one of the angels went to each home of the believers and a single angel was stationed there not only as a guard, but in addition as a spiritual reinforcement for them. As believers we are never to be afraid. We are never to doubt the Lord who indwells each of us who believe. He is utterly faithful unto His own.


He is bringing extra reinforcements in this hour to help us as we all pray asking for His wisdom and guidance, and these angels will assist to also strengthen His atmosphere of peace around us; even as the world is paralyzed with fear, dread, and panic. We are the stronghold of faith and of truth in the earth. Faith will prevail in every situation!


It is the responsibility as believers to learn to habitually live our lives in His peace, and in trust in His Words. So we have nothing to fear but we are to have our faith rooted deeply into Him who not only cares for us, but also in Him who provides all that we need to fulfill His purposes.


Rest in His care saints, and let Him fill you with His abiding peace and let Him strengthen you for all that you are ordained to be and to do in His service. God does know what He is doing in the earth, and He will carry out all of His plans, and you can trust that He will guide you as well as it all unfolds.

"Even Now - Your Promotion Time Is Here!"

By Candice Smithyman




God has been speaking to me for weeks about the fact that this a promotion time. I struggled with this prophetic word because let's face it, when you look from an earthly perspective, what we are facing as a nation and internationally are tough times.


As many of you know, I have been writing for years on the value of the prophetic truths hidden in the Hebrew calendar and how God speaks prophetically to us through it, as a people of God. No matter what we may be facing in our lives, the Word of God, the Torah, and the Hebrew calendar remain the same. They are long-standing truths direct from God that cannot be shaken. We know the power of the Word of God and the testimonies of the lives of those written within the Torah writings and the Bible who were changed when they obeyed the word of the Lord first, and not their circumstances.


When we look at our current world and the loss and pain we have experienced worldwide from the coronavirus, we are in a place of lack and fear, but this is not God's truth and not His perspective. We must stand on God's truth that never changes, especially in the worst of times.


Deliverance in the Month of Nisan


As the month of Nisan on the Hebrew Calendar just started on March 25th at sundown, the Lord has been showing me the power of His words to Moses in Exodus 12. We read what God speaks to him about what is upon God's people and how they should respond in light of the news that an angel of death was coming to overthrow the Egyptian gods, and, ultimately, release God's people from bondage and move the Israelites into the Promised Land in Canaan.


We, as a people, are called to live by faith and faith alone. We are called to stand firm in the faith and not be defeated. These are words we minister to ourselves daily as we speak God's words of life and remember the life of Jesus our Messiah as He walked the earth.


As all of us have been feeling intense spiritual warfare manifesting biologically, psychologically, socially, and economically, many have chosen to look at their surroundings instead of God Himself. We have been given an amazing picture of truth in our very last month of the year on the Hebrew calendar called Adar. In this very month we read of the plagues that were sent to release God's people from bondage. In Exodus 11 we read of the final plague that was to come by the angel of death.


Exodus 11:9 (NASB), "Then the Lord said to Moses, 'Pharaoh will not listen to you, so that My wonders will be multiplied in the land of Egypt.'"


So, we see that God has this great plan to release His people by doing signs and wonders that will cause them to know that only God could've released them from this bondage.


Then when we continue on to Exodus 12, we read that God puts an emphasis on the new month coming for His people and the new strategy they would need to implement to survive what was coming ahead, as God delivers them from bondage, protects them, and carries them to the Promised Land. In Exodus 12:2-3 (NASB) God says, "This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you. Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, 'On the tenth of this month they are each one to take a lamb for themselves, according to their fathers' households, a lamb for each household.'"


God shares with Moses that in this month of Nisan, deliverance would come to His people and He would set them free, not only from death, but they would take silver and gold from the Egyptians, their very own enemy. He says in Exodus 12:5-7 (NASB), "Your lamb shall be an unblemished male a year old; you may take it from the sheep or from the goats. You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month, then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to kill it at twilight. Moreover, they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses in which they eat it."


Then He says in Exodus 12:13-14 (NASB), "The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. Now this day will be a memorial to you, and you shall celebrate it as a feast to the Lord; throughout your generations you are to celebrate it as a permanent ordinance.'"


This memorial that happens every year at this time in the month of Nisan is "Pesach" or Passover. This is a month where we, as God's elect, even remember that the angel of death passed over us. We know Jesus as Messiah, and His Blood is our sacrifice for sin and sets us up to enter the promise to come of a hope, a future and a destiny with Him now, in the present, and in Heaven forever. Passover also happens during a month God calls a "first month," and the first thing is always very important to God. He brought the Israelites out into a new season at the very beginning of His year. He is doing the same for us.


Jesus Himself celebrated Passover as we read in Luke 22:7-8 (NASB), "Then came the first day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. And Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, 'Go and prepare the Passover for us, so that we may eat it.'" Then after Passover supper with His disciples, Jesus became the sacrificial Lamb of God who died for the sins of the world, just as John the Baptist prophesied in John 1:29.


God's Calendar


The Hebrew calendar is powerful in that it is a lunar calendar, starting on the first month God called it into being when He spoke to Moses and said, "This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you" (Exodus 12:2). Our Gregorian calendar is solar and it was adopted from one man's calendar set up through Julius Caesar (the Julian calendar). The Julian calender was later reformed to the Gregorian calendar, introduced by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. When we look at our calendar right now and the trials we are facing internationally, we can see that God is doing the same thing today as was done years before.


Every year before Nisan there is always a war for destiny. There is always a spiritual war in people's lives and a time of great turmoil in the earth and the hearts of men, as God calls us to repent and remember He is God. God is sovereign over the earth and calendar and wants repentance from His people at this time. He always calls for us to take a look at our hearts this time of year before we celebrate Resurrection Sunday on April 12.


Every year God says, "I am going to promote you and bring you into a new promise for the year, a new time of positional increase and promotion." God's voice does not change even though we are faced with a crisis such as the coronavirus. We need to still see the truth in God's Word and His calendar at this time.


Warfare Before the Promise


There is a war in many areas of our lives; the breakdown of our biology, psychology, sociology and economy are only some aspects. If this worldwide turmoil of the coronavirus was not going on, everyone would still be in a spiritual war right now for one reason or another—personally or professionally, it does not matter—it would have come because promotion cannot come without it.


It is true, on the calendar every year, as we enter our promise land in Christ by faith, at Passover and the celebration of Resurrection Sunday, there will always be enemy warfare before the promise comes. The resurrection is our promise for today and for eternity. This was true for Jesus when He was taken away to the Cross, suffering at the hands of men, was crucified, died, buried and then on the 3rd day, resurrected. There was a war with satan that Jesus paid the price to bring us into freedom from captivity. How do we think it will be different for us?


We must get our heads in the right place and maintain our position in Christ, seated with Him in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). Regardless of the fear and turmoil we must press ahead, as the Hebrew calendar says we will be celebrating our promotion time in the spirit realm. This is a gift from God Himself, that we died with Christ, were buried with Him, and resurrected in Him (Romans 6). Therefore, begin to let that truth wash over you as you face your trial.


I realize people are losing jobs, loved ones are sick, and we are fighting for our lives, but the Israelites were doing this, too, during the time of Exodus. They did not know whether or not they would survive what God was asking them—which was to trust Him in the plagues, leave Egypt, face the Red Sea ahead and a miraculous crossing over. Yet, they did it. God covered them, protected them and took them through it, and it was all to promote them and reveal the goodness of God. (Photo via Flickr)


No matter the pain in your life right now, be it a lost loved one, lost job, lost income, overwhelming fear, anxiety, worry, depression, sickness, or any other calamity, remember, Jesus is our Messiah, and He came that we might be resurrected in Him and live with freedom in our hearts and minds. Give Him honor and glory as you go through the warfare for your promotion. You are ultimately fighting the enemy to get you to the other side. Anytime there is a promotion there must be a war. You must pass through something so you get to where God has called you. This will be over soon as I believe that Passover is a crossing over point, and we will see the transfer of wealth and the promise come to pass.


Your Moment to Sow


In Ephesians 5:15-17 (NKJV), "See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is."


The word "time" in this passage is the Greek word "kairos." This is our kairos moment; our season and appointed time to stand in faith and see the deliverance of the Lord for our destiny. Jesus is redeeming our time lost, or the opportunities that have been canceled, or shut down due to this coronavirus, as He paid the ransom for our kairos moment. We must stand and remember Him and we will see the deliverance of the Lord.


So how do we handle things if we are fighting an invisible enemy that slows us down in progress and movement?


One thing we can do while we wait is to sow. In Genesis 26:12, we read of Isaac who sowed in the famine and in the same year received a 100-fold blessing. The Word, in Genesis 26:18, also says that he dug the wells of deep from the days of Abraham, which had been blocked up by the enemy, and he reopened them. Let us do the same. Let us begin to sow and dig deep wells of faith and relationship with God through repentance, seeking Him in reflection as we approach Resurrection Sunday, and watch Him be who He is on His calendar, which is the God of healing, Jehovah Rapha, and God our provider, Jehovah Jireh.


God is giving fresh, creative ideas from Heaven; grab ahold of them and run with them during this slow time. Get yourself strong in faith for the new that is coming so you will be ready to run the race once this global "slow down" is over.


Hebrews 10:19-23 (NIV) says, "Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the Blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, His body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful."


By faith, respond with an action to sow and dig during this season and watch God, by faith, redeem us, as this is His kairos moment and our kairos moment in Him; the appointed season on the calendar to expect warfare before the promotion. The righteous ones live by faith and they do not shrink back (Hebrews 10:38). We, the people of His Kingdom, will not shrink back but press forward until the promises of God come to pass.

"The Shaking That Leads to Upgrade!"

By Jordan Bigler




The Shaking


God is shaking the dead fruit off the tree. The reason for this is so that the dead fruit can fall to the ground, no longer on the tree absorbing energy. God is removing and shaking things off your tree, because He brings life and energy and He doesn't waste it. Don't be alarmed when you see dead fruit falling off your tree. It's a good thing.


What did that last "shaking off" season in my own life lead to? The shaking off led to a "paying off." Once some stuff was shaken off, then an opportunity opened up that brought me to a new location, a new job, a new vision, and a new provision. It was an upgrade season. That's what people are calling the "breakthrough" right now. Breakthrough isn't a "Boom! All your problems are solved," breakthrough is an upgrade to a new level, but there's still work to be done. Don't be surprised if your upgrade takes a little work; it's in the name "up-grade" – uphill.


"Upgrade" also means new terrain. I felt God highlighting that there is an upgrade in the payoff. Your upgrade is a payday, payload, pay dirt. There is gold in the ground you are about to step into.




In regards to stepping into your season or transitioning into a season, I felt like God was saying, "This time will be different." The time is different – literally and figuratively. This time is different because it is actually a different time than it was before. March 4th comes around every year, but every March 4th is different – March 4th, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, etc. This exact moment is RICH with history.


I also felt God highlight the James Bond movie title "No Time to Die," however, I misheard it as "A Time to Die." I don't believe this was coincidence because of what God showed me through it – "A Time to Die." This is a time to: Let the past be the past and let that "time" die. As a word of healing in regards to timing, I felt God saying, "You can't hold onto what didn't happen." What never happened, never happened, so let it go. I also felt the title of this season/prayer was, "Get Out of Debt Doing What You Love." Yes, this upgrade/payoff season has the excitement and hope of, "Get Out of Debt Doing What You Love."


Where Does the Upgrade Come From, God?


I felt God responded saying, "It's not what you know in this season, it's who you know. This is a "who-you-know, connections, relationships" kind of season. The person on the other line is saying, "My boss is too busy to look at resumes; he gave me permission to hire whoever I trust. I'm choosing you."


Who do you know? Do you know who you know? You know the biggest know-it-all of them all, GOD! God knows everyone, and He knows who He wants to call. He's calling you. Do you have good service? Check your heart. Do you have a servant's heart, a service-oriented heart? Do you have a good Carrier? Who is your calling service? Do you have "Sprint 5G" or do you have "Spirit of G.O.D."? Many of us could use a calling right now.


I also felt God highlighting this: You're going to move from A to B and think that was an incredible jump, but God has a much greater jump for you. He has a, "You thought that was good, wait until you see THIS!" kind of jump coming.


I saw two pictures relating to God. One was the idea of us revolving around "the Son" like the earth revolves around the sun. And the question I heard was this: "What if we revolved around 'the Son' the way the earth does?" Then we would experience highs and lows. We would see different shades and aspects of God. Some days would be longer or shorter, etc. We would see more or less of Him depending on where we were rotating, which lends to the repetitive cycling of the timing. (Again, there are many March 4ths but only one in 2017, 2018, 2019, etc.)


The second picture I saw was "Summer is Coming," which means taking off layers. I felt God was saying that He is going to take off layers and remove more of the layers between us and Him spiritually. The removal of layers spoke of intimacy. Jesus and us getting closer and closer means more is revealed, more is intimate. May there be more intimacy with God and more revealing revelations.


Thinking back to the comparison of seasons, I felt God remind me that my season of upgrade was a season where I was blessed and upgraded so much that debts were paid off and my future was paved for the next steps. May God bless you so much that it pays off your debts and paves the way for your destiny. I also heard God highlight that Jesus was the ultimate price paid for your debts. Jesus was your debts paid in the flesh and your future paved too.


Lastly, I asked God, "How do I know it's the best?" He said that you have to test it. You have to put it through the test and find out. You were made to be your best, you were made to be tested. Your challenges are won by overcoming. A semi-truck is designed to haul packages, a car is designed to haul people, and you were designed to haul purpose. You are carrying purpose everywhere you go. It's your choice what you do with it. You have purpose.


If you lived in Africa, you would walk miles to get water, but that water has life in it and you are bringing it back to your friends and family. When you are walking in your purpose you are bringing life to others. (Saul brought death to the Christians and he wasn't walking in his purpose, but when he encountered Jesus, He was converted to Paul and brought life to the Body around him.)


You don't have to know where you're going to know you have a purpose.


Then God asked me, "Who told you you were lost?" This sounded like when He asked Adam and Eve, "Who told you you were naked?" Jesus said, "If you're willing to lose your life you will find it."


May God help you lose your life so that you might find it in Him. May you walk with purpose everywhere you go. May you be so blessed that it pays off your debts and paves a way to your destiny. May your time with Jesus bring more intimacy and revelation. May God sustain you with strength as you walk through your upgrade. May you be blessed in every direction. May your tree be free of dead fruit and full of life. May you "Get Out of Debt Doing What You Love." And may you know Jesus paid for every moment, and every moment is precious to Him.
