What I saw and heard in my spirit was partly visual and partly the inward voice of the Ruach. As I have sought the Lord about how and what to share about "Seeing Red", I am being led to describe the experience to you, and I am praying for His interpretation to your heart of hearts. You will probably think this is one of the most unusual articles I have ever sent, but I do believe He wants to speak to you, to all of us, in a way that is personal and specific to the understanding of each of us.
In a time of meditation and seeking His face, colors came into my mind or into my spirit or was it with my natural eyes – I am really not sure, but my eyes were closed - distinct colors, but other-worldly - I saw "red", a flowing, thick, pulsating, liquid "red". Soon it was intermingled with gold. I knew He was showing me the glory of His salvation, of His sacrifice - His Blood and His Deity, His Shekinah, His Glory. I was “hearing” in colors.
And then the purple came, the deepest purple of the King, flowing, swirling, expanding and contracting, similar to how the pupil of an eye will dilate, almost like the eye of Elohim out of heaven.
For sure, this is the Lord appearing to my heart and speaking without words. But soon I began to "hear" words in my spirit. At first they seemed disconnected, but the more I listened, barely breathing, because I did not want to be distracted from this divine connection, I realized the words did connect although as far as I know I've never had a teaching on this or put these words together before.
He was showing me that He was the King with a robe dipped in blood and in fact He is bringing His vengeance to the earth - it was Yeshua, the One Called Faithful and True - and He was coming out of heaven, riding a horse, and He had fire in His eyes. (Rev. 19) The earth began to be filled with His fury and it was blood-soaked. There were many with Him, experiencing the victory over evil, but it was terrifying. Their robes were white but they had been washed in blood.
I started to hear the word "Morning Star" and then the word "Scepter".....with shallow breath, I waited to hear more and began to hear that the prophetic word is more than what is written in Revelation, that it must be connected back to the very beginning so that we will glorify and worship the God of Israel.
He was showing me the prophecies of His coming, specifically, of His coming in vengeance and also why this whole issue of embracing the fullness of Elohim and the fullness of Tanach (the entire Bible) is for these days and for this hour. This message must be proclaimed.
Some scripture that I know very well came to my heart - the one in Revelation 22 - where He calls Himself the Morning Star, but I knew He was showing me something else, something more - I was also hearing, "this Star is rising in the East". And, of course, we know the Star has risen in the East before, but it is going to rise in the East again.
At this point, I realized that the vision/picture that I was seeing was prophetic and to be shared - "the Star is rising in the East". It is the Morning Star. It is Yeshua, the Sun rising with healing in His wings. There is an army coming out of heaven on horseback and there is a fury of blood-soaking vengeance. We who are His are with Him and part of this.
Yet, He says "don't be afraid, I am with you". He is the Overcomer. There is absolutely no question that He is the Victor and that He will be King over all the earth, reigning from Yerushalyim (Jerusalem).
Next, I heard "the scepter will not part from my hands...."
And, "until Shiloh comes...."
The scepter will not depart from Judah or the staff from between His feet until Shiloh comes....(from Gen. 49:10)
The Star and the Scepter....the Ruach is showing you the things to come.....
The prophets will speak when Israel and the tribes are being restored to the Land...now the visions and the prophetic words go forth. Now is the time.
“When Balaam looked out and saw Israel encamped tribe by tribe, the Spirit of God came upon him, and he uttered his oracle…the oracle of one whose eye sees clearly, the oracle of one who hears the words of God, who sees a vision from the Almighty, who falls prostrate, and whose eyes are opened...” (Numb. 24:2-4)
And He confirmed the vision/picture/words about the “Red”, the Star and the Scepter” with His Word - He took me to the Word made certain –
"....a star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel. He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the sons of Sheth. Edom will be conquered: Seir, his enemy, will be conquered, but Israel will grow strong. A ruler will come out of Jacob and destroy the survivors of the city." Numb. 24:17-19.
The fullness of the prophetic Word of the Lord is soon coming to fulfillment.
This is the Lion of Judah and His people - "like a lion they crouch and lie down, like a lioness - who dares to rouse them?" (Numb. 24:9)
And this is both male and female - the lion and the lioness - and He will pour out His warrior anointing and His prophetic word on both men and women in these days (Joel 2:28-29), so open wide your mouth, and He will fill it. And then He says, "May those who bless you be blessed and those who curse you be cursed". (Numb. 24:9)
He showed me the words of the Ruach spoken in this prophecy long ago to Jacob about the Lion of Judah - I was amazed when I read words in Gen. 49:1 that are almost identical to the words Jesus spoke in John 16:13 -
"Gather around so I can tell you what will happen to you in days to come." (Gen. 49:1 - spoken by Jacob to his sons as the Father speaks to us of His.)
And the words of Yeshua about the Ruach (the Spirit) -
"But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth.....He will tell you what is yet come." (John 16:13)
About Judah (Yeshua) - as prophesied by his father -
"Judah, your brothers will praise you; your hand will be on the neck of your enemies.....you are a lion's cub, O Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness - who dares to rouse him? (Note: again, the words, "lion and lioness" - male and female created He them for these days of His victory.)
And then again the words about the scepter - by this time, I was practically in another world -
"The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his. He will tether his donkey to a vine, his colt to the choicest branch; he will wash his garments in wine, his robes in the blood of grapes..." (Gen. 49:10-11)
The picture/vision/word became full in the awareness of the "Red", the Star, the Scepter, the Lion and the lion and the lioness, the fury and the vengeance, and the victory.....
And, now, tonight, I am reminded of another verse – for us to cling to, to embrace, for it is for such a time as this –
“And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the Morning Star rises in your hearts.” (II Peter 1:19)
Surely, He is showing us things that are to come.
