Oh my, Lord, please keep me upright so I can express what it is You are showing me. You are so powerful and wonderful, I don’t know how to contain the force of Your power and love that are crashing into me! Pour into those who will read this Jesus!
Earlier this week, as pouring myself a cup of coffee, suddenly Jesus appeared on a horse. He rode into the room where I was standing. He just rode right in. He literally came in, it was a suddenly!! He arrived on His majestic horse, an outstanding creature, powerful, beautiful, regal. The horse was chestnut brown in color and covered with a royal purple blanket under it’s saddle, decorated in yellow gold and dark brown leathers. The saddle was beautiful.
Jesus was smiling so wide, happy to see me! His horse was prancing a bit to the left and right, back and forth, happily neighing. Jesus was sitting very straight in the saddle, just beaming down at me actually. He was laughing and He filled the room with His size and presence. The room disappeared and we were outside in a large field. It was Jesus, His horse and me! I was so surprised to see Him at this particular moment that I became instantly glory drunk. His very presence is intoxicating, my natural senses are unable to withstand His presence which seems to emanate thousands of earth miles out of His body, knocking everything down, mountains become plains, enemies scatter, Oh glory to God! We so need a glorified body in that day because what we have here in the natural just will never do.
I am standing in this large field in the greenest of grass, mountains in the distance, vibrant blue skies. I focus in front of me and look up and there’s Jesus Christ, King Jesus Christ, so very handsome and strong, oh how my heart beats so much faster when I look upon Him. I love you Jesus! Today, He did not look like Jesus of Nazareth, I mean He did, but He was wearing different attire, riding attire. It was very fitting since He was, after all, riding a horse! Ha! Horses dance in heaven, they do, I have watched them!
As I’m standing on the ground before Him, He extended down His right hand towards me. I saw He was wearing what looked like riding gloves. In the palm of His right hand, He was holding the most perfect, beautiful, pure, smooth, opalescent rather large pearl. It was beautiful! I noticed how very very smooth it was, it was noticeably smooth. The pearl was nestled in a beautiful piece of cloth in His hand. I instantly knew it was the pearl of great price. I have not seen it’s beauty anywhere before! Anywhere!!
I heard deep inside of me the richest of words with great weight, meaning, and depth. Each word spoken opened up layers of revelation. The very words He speaks, each word, is alive, forever!! His words resonated within the very core of my being. I heard, “the Kingdom of heaven is likened unto a treasure hid in a field, that when a man finds it, he hid it and went and sold all he had to buy that field.” I then saw inside of me the words “the Kingdom of heaven is likened to a merchant seeking goodly pearls who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all he had and bought it.” (Matthew 13:44-46 KJV.)
I stared at that beautiful pearl in Jesus’ hand, He held it up a bit and then lowered it so I could see the varying colors it displayed as it would be gently turned in His hand. I had to have that pearl. I saw inside of me the glory realms, King Jesus lives in me, the Kingdom of heaven is within me, His Kingdom’s reign, rule, authority, beauty, freedom, righteousness, peace, joy in the Holy Ghost is within me through Christ alone! The promised land, inside of me, that the Kingdom of heaven is likened unto a pearl of great price. I just had to have that pearl.
Jesus became very silent, very serious. The horse, unmoving, His hand extended toward me as He held that pearl of great price. He was presenting it to me for purchase. He was watching me to see what I would do, would I sell all that I had to purchase that pearl? I realized in my outward silence that He could hear my internal conversation. I thought about the selling of everything that I owned to purchase that pearl. This meant, all those I love, my children, my family, my friends, my objects, assets, liabilities, mindsets, memories, future plans, ministry plans, my time, everything, my ego, all of it, had to be sold to purchase that pearl of great price. Jesus continued to look at me. I continued to look at that pearl of great price, it was so beautiful, I had to have it.
In those moments, I presented all I am and all I am not to Him. I sold it all to Jesus to purchase that pearl of great price. He made the exchange with me, He took what was mine, or what I considered mine, because it is all really His anyway, and then He handed that pearl of great price to me saying, with a smile, “It’s now yours.”
I took the pearl from His hands into mine. It was so big and so beautiful! Instantly, He scooped me up with one arm and lifted me up onto His saddle in front of Him, I never let go of that pearl. My back fit perfectly against His chest. I felt so contently content, happy, dreamy, warm, thrilled knowing inside I made the best purchase one could ever make. I held that pearl so close to me, I want to say I ate it because I felt it enter within my spirit. I felt the Kingdom of heaven inside of me. It entered my being. My insides grew, I felt my lands expand inside of me, my territories enlarged, my tent pegs spread out farther, my spirit man soared higher, wider, just becoming more of everything in Christ! I felt increase in me!! I cannot imagine ever exchanging this beautiful precious pearl of great price for anything or anyone. Lord Jesus, YOU are the pearl of great price, YOU are my greatest treasure, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in me as it is in heaven!
We rode the horse together with me leaning against His chest for quite some time as Jesus revealed more of His word to me, He revealed more of Himself to me. He revealed more of His Kingdom realities into me releasing revelatory revelation, power and breakthrough of wisdom and counsel. I physically sat in the counsel of the Lord, I leaned against Him, in His arms, while He counseled me!
