In these times, I believe the Lord is INCREASING and RELEASING His voice, with great authority, through His “first fruits” people groups of the land. He is raising up His sold out, set apart, Indigenous burning ones, and releasing HIS VOICE to set nations ablaze for Jesus.
Recently, the Lord took me up into an encounter, and I was looking down on my nation of Australia. By the Spirit of God, I knew that this encounter was for Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and other Indigenous people to the lands.
His Glory Released Through the First Nations Indigenous People
I could see glory mist rising up from the land across the nation. As my spiritual eyes zoomed in closer to the land, in the midst of the glory, I could see people dancing, and I heard a glorious sound. It was the First Nations Indigenous people of the land, worshiping and dancing in their cultural way; the dust of the land spraying up as their feet hit the ground. The glory of the Lord was released into the land as they stomped in the dance. The glory spread and filled the land of the nation (see Habakkuk 2:14).
The First Nations people carry a glory that is unique to the land. This glory is about to be released into the nations, and I believe it is a powerful, ancient key to unlock the awakening of nations.
The Rhythm of an Ancient Love
The overwhelming sense which surrounded me was that these First Nation countrymen and women were dancing to the rhythm of an ‘ancient love’ that compelled them to arise and dance with song; an ancient love that wooed them and drew them back to their first love, Jesus.
“Break forth with dancing! Make music and sing God’s praises with the rhythm of the drums! For He enjoys His faithful lovers. He adorns the humble with His beauty, and He loves to give them victory.” (Psalm 149:3-4 TPT) (Photo via Piqsels)
“We love Him, because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:19 KJV)
An Intergenerational Love Drawn from an Ancient Timeline
This ancient love seemed to rise from deep within the age-old layers of this land. It felt to me like an intergenerational love for our Creator was being drawn from an ancient timeline, up through the feet of the First Nations people, and released into the “now” timeline. It was being released through their dance, their song and their hands.
As we all join hands and hearts, the love of God will become known through our lives in the present day. We will be known by the fruit of this ancient love of God; the one who loved us before the foundations of the earth. This intergenerational, ancient love is reigniting within the people.
During this whole encounter, I was surrounded with a strong sense of surrender and being positioned right in the center of a place that beckons, “Draw near to Me and I will draw near to you” (see James 4:8).
Ancient Strongholds Broken
As the perfect love of God poured out through the land and the people, the sheer power of this pure love caused ancient strongholds to be broken off of the land and the people. The land itself was breaking free from shackles and being saturated and soaked in the love and the pure goodness of God.
Unearthing His Hidden Treasures
The love of God was washing away all reproach and revealing these priceless treasures.
“I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings. And He has put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many shall see and fear (revere and worship) and put their trust and confident reliance in the Lord.” (Psalm 40:1-3 AMPC)
I believe the Lord is unearthing His hidden treasures. These hidden treasures are the First Nations voices of the Land, which are being unearthed from the lower layers of the land, causing them to ARISE and RESOUND – NO LONGER BOUND! Once hidden, now they will be lifted up from the miry clay to decree and declare the Word of the Lord, and to display His splendor. (Photo via Pxfuel)
First Nations Awakened Sons Shift Into Destiny
What I was seeing was the First Nations awakened sons and daughters shifting into destiny, arising from the land with a dance of deliverance, a strong song and a new voice.
“O God, my saving God, deliver me fully from every sin, even the sin that brought bloodguilt. Then my heart will once again be thrilled to sing the passionate songs of joy and deliverance!” (Psalm 51:14 TPT)
DECREE: First Nations people,
I decree that the shackles have now been broken off of you. Arise and dance! First Nations people, break forth with dancing and worship to the Lord (see Psalm 149:3-4 TPT)!
I decree, you have been lifted out of the pit of destruction, your feet have been set upon the rock of Jesus and He has established your goings (see Psalm 40:1-3 AMP). Arise and resound – no longer bound!
I decree, the Lord has put a new song of praise to the one true living God in your mouth. You have now put your trust and confident reliance in the Lord God Almighty. You see Him, you revere Him, and you worship Him alone (see Psalm 40:1-3 AMP).
First Nations sons and daughters, arise and shift into destiny, with a dance of deliverance and a strong song, boldly decreeing the Word of the Lord with your new voice!
