From the Ashes to the Oasis
By Sherry Edwards Mackey
God is setting up Divine Protocol. This is God’s way
of systematically setting up order in correct conduct and procedures to be followed. This is essential for anyone in God’s army. We are all under his command.
I see a dead body being cremated.
Intense heat caused the dead body to dry up and burn away till all that was left was ashes. The ashes were swept up and put into a pottery vessel and a top on it. The vessel itself looks to be made of clay and seasoned in heat to become a usable
vessel fit for the Master’s use.
As we rise from the ashes of our past, nothing is left but our frail earthen body made of clay. Day by day we have died to our flesh and as we decrease, HE is increasing. The goal?
To become as he is; a consuming fire, so transparent with nothing to hide.
Though our outer body dies, our inward body is renewed day by day. We can have a new beginning each day, each hour, each moment. Christ paid the price
so we can have everything he promised us. There is nothing holding us back as we are learning to walk clothed in the glory of God. We have sold ourselves to God because we finally realize that HE is our great and exceeding reward!
“My dove, my undefiled is but one; she is the only one of her mother, she is the choice one of her that bare her. The daughters saw her, and blessed her; yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her. Who is she that looketh
forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners? I went down into the garden of nuts to see the fruits of the valley, and to see whether the vine flourished, and the pomegranates budded. Or ever I
was aware, my soul made me like the chariots of Amminadib. Return, return, O Shulamite; return, return, that we may look upon thee. What will ye see in the Shulamite? As it were the company of two armies,” Song of Songs
I see a small scale replica of a ministry shown through time, with military type situation’s looking down from above. Like looking from a strategic and tactical stance in military terms.
God is keeping many things hidden, but has been preparing us for battle. I see how He uses all life skills and tests us in various levels of being faithful with little. I see all sorts of situations God has trained us in small scale, to be able
to be ready to handle large scale ministry and battles.
God is giving strategy to His overall campaign plan, which will involve complex operational patterns; decision making that leads us to tactical execution. He is revealing these
things to His generals and full bird colonels who have been prepared for such a time.
We must discipline ourselves to be readiness whenever and wherever we are. For when the trump sounds it is time to GO! Sometimes being still
is the hardest thing we do. Be still and know that I AM God; that is just as important to God as charging forward.
From above, I see a long wide box of glass housing the small scale replica’s of
ministries and battles in various time and places.
I also see those times of being alone in suffering, no one knew but God.
I also see those in times of being hidden and kept in secret. For in isolation HE teaches
us dependence on Him alone. For some, it has been decades in waiting.
I heard, “Will I ever be ready?” Then I saw those wandering aimlessly through years and those He carried through death experiences.
Preparation is never wasted time nor are our mistakes. God turns everything around for our good and will use all of our experiences and mistakes to help build up the body and army of God.
Despise not small beginnings.
The replica’s revealed the exact timing and training ground. Many of you recognize this as coded orders from the training gained through the campaign’s. The LORD has taken us through basic training, then to technical
training on to strategic full time training. Many thought they were already in full time ministry, but in fact, it was more training.
The I AM asked; “Would you be faithful with a few?” Would you be faithful with
What if I asked you to leave it all and loose your life and follow me; would you go for My sake? Would you? There is a cost. Would you pick up your cross and follow Me wherever I send you?
is standing above watching us walk it out. He prepared us so well, that we will not fail the mission.
I see promotions. Promotion comes from the LORD. I see movement; God is moving each piece in placement on His battle
plan. Like when the generals stand over the maps at command center operations to plan strategy and campaigns.
“For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he
putteth down one, and setteth up another,” Psalm 75:6-7.
The last shall be first, the first last.
A militant and pioneer spirit go hand in hand; The violent take the land by force from the enemy;
These militant pioneers, go to where no man has gone before, does what no man has done before.
For example, a wagon train with a sign on the side saying; “Arizona or bust.” There is absolutely no turn around. These
have declared to God; it is all or nothing; and some are willing to lay down their lives and die for the prize.
To these, there will be nothing left behind, all bridges burned and gone. Only ashes are left. These face
the day and future as fact not fiction; dealing with issues head on. These move when the glory cloud moves.
Instead of each wagon individually, we circle our wagons corporately. In this end time army you cannot survive by yourself.
There shall be corporate anointing campaign’s as needed against all the enemy attacks.
We will be like one wheel with many spokes, but when all are in place doing each individual purpose, the wheel and the hub within the wheel will
be able to roll and move forward.
Diverse yet each spoke in place makes the wheel roll with traction surface. All in unison, preferring one another, recognizing each gift and appreciating them and doing whatever must happen for them
to be in place. Each one being interdependent of one another.
Those who are with us become our close allies and kindred family. Land that was deemed unfit will become artisan wells that springs up in the desert; a new oasis
is formed. There are some oases that are break points for refreshing. There will be others that will host new spring oasis for advancement, a protective encampment of sorts to teach and train others how to function within the boundaries of their
gifting, equipping and releasing.
Others will come and be planted, rooted and grounded in new plans from the Master’s hand. While many will come and go, only looking at the surface level in the barren land; others will grow
and thrive in the midst of insurmountable odds.
For those who have sold out to God and moved with Gods cloud by day and fire by night, these will see signs, wonders, miracles and provision from heaven. It will be heaven on earth.
Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Many are waiting for you to become the promise they have waited for. For some have watched from a distance, even decades, thinking you would die. Some have wandered
aimlessly in dry barren land and became strengthened due to your intervention.
In these spiritual oasis’, many sheep will come and lambs birthed in the shelter of the shade of protection and drink of pure clear water. Abused
wounded sheep shall come, but will quickly realize that this is what they have waited for, for so long. Some even gave up thinking there would never be a shepherd that could find them in this intense heat. Many will be so grateful to God, to finally
find where they fit.
In this environment of provision and great love, there will be many live births. Others will be strengthened and fulfilled in their position. They will recognize the government of the LORD. For His government
is on His shoulders. He even carries a sheep on His shoulders that were lost, and He brought them to the waters edge. In the oasis of His presence, there shall be tall palm trees and leaves of other plants that provide shade and cool place to thrive.
Many of these have set their face like flint. Their stance is; We shall press through pressure, pregnancy, purpose, plan, promotion and provision. Promotion comes from the LORD and He will reveal His plans to His servants the prophets.
Many are birthing His purposes now.
Every road formed by pioneers, becomes the spearhead for others to map their trek by. The LORD has gone before us and has made every crooked place straight.
We are on a mission
from GOD. He is going into ALL the world seeking and saving those who are lost and dying. His mission and commissioning of those who are and will be ordained by God, shall have the nature and character of Christ.
broken, humble, meek, gentle, mild and lowly of heart yet these have great determination, fortitude, boldness, confidence and courage with resolve against the enemy and many hirelings and false brethren. The hirelings will accuse My beloved and mistakenly
label them as prideful, arrogant, haughty and rebellious. The enemy will accuse day and night. They seek to cause confusion to those who are without understanding and weak.
“These valiant ones, though they take no credit
to themselves, will uncover and reveal the enemies positions and plans as they are obedient to my call. When they walk into a region, hell shakes! When they walk into a city, church house or home, hell knows it and hell shakes and demons tremble!
The enemy knows who you are and the anointing of light uncovers anything hidden in darkness. Even in so called religious houses, hell shakes. Even the enemy knows who you are and must respond to My authority. They know who
“Jesus I know and Paul I know but who are you?’ Acts 19:15*
I have given you authority and the power of My Word. Everywhere your feet tread has been given to you to possess.
Our enemy stands up in fear and fright. My anointing will provoke a reaction to action, and when the enemy reacts he will reveal his position.
My weaponry shall be revealed and released in My warriors and they shall destroy the assignments
of darkness. Many shall be destroyed in the planning stages in secret, for I will reveal these secrets to My prophets. Listen to the sound beloved; Hear the sound of the trumpets! Destroy the works of the devil. It is for the souls
of man kind that you fight and win!
You have fought in many campaigns and there are those who will come together in their season in time and you will be given understanding that you shall know their boundaries in
spirit and release them.
All will flow together in unison, as each are prepared on the backside of the desert as Moses was. Each carrying within gifts hidden, and weaponry genetically placed within each cell and membrane of their
soul and spirit.
I have chosen to hide My purpose within them, for these end time warriors and battles are for the souls of man kind. The goal is to find and win them, as others are in place to teach, train, equip and release them
into their positions.
Each having gifts differing from the others, but placed like a puzzle piece in union with others of like heart and nature. Each one individually were created for such a time as this.
uniting to one place yet sent from many places as the commissioning dictates. Sent with orders from above by faith, not knowing what they shall expect, except that they know they heard from heavens messengers. Selah.
evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?” Acts 19:15.
“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the LORD of glory. But it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared
for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things
of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God,” 1 Corinthians 2:7–11.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
