“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.” (James 4:10)
In an early morning vision, a woman was shown standing in the air above me with her arm lifted in a flexed position. As I pondered the vision, the following Words were spoken: “Independent, Humility, The Lord, Clapping”
The woman symbolizes the feminine representation of the body of Christ. This is the redeemed church who is beginning to find strength through Independence of the world and in humility! The Lord is empowering her in weakness! (2 Cor. 12:8-10). She is humbly recognizing that she must decrease so that the Lord can increase! (Jn. 3:30) It follows that the arm she flexes is a display of her Husband’s strength – the mighty biblical arm of the Lord at work in her. That she was shown standing symbolizes that she is finally taking a stand and will not back down in the face of adversity. Through afflictions, tests and trials, she is finally beginning to understand the way of overcoming sin and its consequences through Jesus Christ’s New Blood Covenant! It follows that this woman’s stand and position is being recognized by a gesture of approval and joy, Clapping! This is the Church of Redemption! This is a vision of the redeemed Church of the New Blood Covenant! And she is strong in the Lord!
“Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy” (Ps 47:1).
“Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together” (Ps 98:8),
Although clapping is positive for the redeemed Church around the world, clapping can also be a prophetic gesture of judgment for anyone and any nation who does not accept GOD’s plan of salvation through HIS New Covenant. Unrepented people and nations who flex in the strength of their flesh are without the understanding, power, guidance and protection of the LORD. On different levels they are open to deception. They remain vulnerable to satanic delusions and attacks and are unguarded during battle. Having brought judgment and persecution upon themselves, they are tragically left to their own devices. Discern. (Ezekiel 21:14-17)
“**If my people, which are called by my name** shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chr. 7:14)
“For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation.” (Psalm 149:4)
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to *the Jew first and also the Greek* “. (Jews and Gentiles) (Rom. 1:16)
