I can hear that thunder in the distance, like a train on the edge of the town. I can feel the brooding of Your Spirit; Lay your burdens down. (from Revival, Robin Mark)
For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end (fulfillment); it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait (earnestly) for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day. Habakkuk 2:3 (Scripture given to us in 2000 on a prophetic journey to the Hebrides Islands)
This is a highly prophetic time. When things are happening rapidly, it is a good thing to stop and think about the pieces that God is putting together and how that it affects the time we are in.
Recently we have been drawn back to a couple of seasons. One was 2008 and the other was 2012. A number of prophets have been declaring that words that were given in both those timeframes are coming to pass now. A word given at the Tent in the beginning of this year was that this was the year of fulfillment.
Just this morning Doug Addison published on the Elijah List that spoke of words that were given in 2012: "There are many things that were supposed to happen in 2012 that, for various reasons, did not come about or fully develop. the timing of many of these prophetic words is coming now".
For the Tent of David, both 2008 and 2012 were very significant. In 2008 we made our first journey to Israel as a group and a significant thing happened then. The new gate in the old city of Jerusalem had just opened up and we were some of the first to walk through it. We prophetically walked through as a group and declared that a new gate had opened in the Spirit. Although it was very far from our minds at the time, since then we have opened up a house of prayer in Israel and have been sowing into the Galilee since 2014. We know that we have not fully come into what God has for that house but feel that now is the time for the next steps to be revealed.
In 2012 we travelled as a group from the Tent to the Hebrides Islands to minister there. It had been 12 years since Dan and I had first heard God say to go to the Isle of Lewis on a prophetic journey. The fullness of time. We had an amazing time with the New Wine church there and many things were prophesied. For us, we came home with a word we were not aware of before. It was the "There shall be no ebb" word by 101 year old Arthur Burt from Wales. This word so impacted us that we have memorized it and gave it out whenever we could. It speaks of the end time revival that will never end.
Two weeks ago, Dan and I felt to go to the Gathering of the Clans in Halifax Nova Scotia. This was an incredible time of understanding the Celtic heritage of the land and how it will form part of the DNA of what God is about to do in Canada. At that time, an Irish worship leader began to sing Robin Mark's song "Revival" and something ignited in the Spirit. I can hear that thunder in the distance like a train on the edge of the town....
Something about the train was arresting. It reminded me of the dream that Dan had in 2002. He saw a steam locomotive coming very fast from east to west and as it passed him, suddenly the flag of Canada snapped up into view on the caboose. Dan has drawn a picture of that train which I have copied on the side panel. We knew it was the revival train..the glory train rushing across our nation.
Then this past weekend we had Kari Browning at the Tent speaking of the prophetic words that have spoken of the end time revival. Throughout that weekend, the theme of the train kept coming. At the lunch on Saturday I felt to make a train out of vegetables for the guests. Then on Sunday, the worship was all about the train coming. It was amazing. Kari then brought out an article that she wrote in 2012 about the fullness of time and the Glory Train. She mentioned that everyone thought that revival was going to happen in 2012, but somehow it has been delayed. She also said that Bob Jones said that when it came, it would not be one minute late. (Habakkuk 2:3)
At this meeting, we felt to give to Kari, a piece of a puzzle that was given to us in Halifax at the Gathering of the Clans, representing the fact that we were all now part of a bigger puzzle that was to be revealed.
Right on the heels of that comes the Doug Addison word today. As I have been going back in my journals to 2008 and 2012, so many things that have been said or done are right out of the pages of what was written back then.
One of the words that I had at the end of 2008 speaks of an appointed time, some of which is this:
This is the year of crossing over says the Lord. You will cross over in my time into the green verdant pasture that I have been preparing for you for some time. When you cross, you will take twelve stones and these stones of remembrance will mark the way of crossing over. It will be into a season of no more manna, but the pure provision of God.
A gateway will open up in the Spirit which was not seen until this time. It will be an ancient gate leading to an ancient path that none have tread for many generations. There will be a coming in, a coming into a fullness of time.
The time has been waiting until all things are fulfilled.
The pieces of the puzzle will snap together and suddenly the whole panorama of what I have been building will be seen.
There are links in the Spirit which I have been forming . Some of those links are still yet to be seen in the natural, but they are ready in the Spirit realm.
Pieces of a puzzle, pointing to the fullness of time.
The last significant thing that points to now is something that happened when Bob Jones died. When he was on his deathbed, the clock in his room suddenly began to speed forward and stopped for several minutes at 8. Following this, it went rapidly forward and stopped at 12. I feel that this pointing to 2008 and 2012. The things that were prophesied then have reached the fullness of time. It is our appointed time for the Ottawa Valley. Get ready; there's a train a comin'.
