Wake Up

WakeUp_SMWake Up depicts the roaring alarm being sounded. It is time to be awake!

  • Romans 13:11-13 (NLT) This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armor of right living. Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see…
  • Numbers 23:24 (VOICE) Look at this people rise up like a lion, like a lion who gets up and does not lie down until it devours its prey, even drinking the blood of the slain.
  • 1 Peter 5:8 (AMPC) Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

In Scripture, the enemy, our Messiah, and the people of God are compared to a lion. A frequent tactic of the darkness is to tempt us into forgetting our identity in Christ. To forget our identity is to spiritually “fall asleep,” and we become vulnerable to giving our kingdom power and authority away.

Yes, the evil one roams around like a lion. When we are asleep, we can become tempted to fear his roar, his fierceness, and his power. Yet when we awaken to our identity in Christ—and we remain awake—our perspective is set in order. In spiritual alertness, we remember that the authority and power of our King, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, reigns over all. We remember that the evil one has already been defeated on the Cross. We cannot fear the darkness as long as we remain awake to the power of the Light. And we must never forget that that divine Light lives and shines through us!

A Prophetic Nugget from Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Ministries is connected to this. It’s called “Steadfast in Vigilance.”

1 Peter 5:8 (AMPC) Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

Beloved, this is not a time to slumber or be distracted. The hour is late. This is a time for sobriety and vigilance. Be awake and alert. The King is coming. Make ready and remain watchful, for you do not know the hour, but will not want to be caught unaware.

Resist the urge to become complacent or lackadaisical. In doing so you become vulnerable to attacks intended to derail you from My purposes. Instead, remain steadfast in vigilance and prepare for the King to come, for I AM coming.

Another Prophetic Nugget from Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Ministries is connected to this. It’s called “El Elyon (God Most High).”

Hosea 11:10 (AMP) They will walk after the Lord [in obedience and worship], Who will roar like a lion; He will roar [summoning them] And His sons will come trembling from the west.

Beloved, walk in obedience and utter devotion, for you know not the strength we operate in when we move together as one. Trust in Me and trust in My plans, for we are fearsome in unity of purpose as we watch My Word unfold.

See Me as I AM – high and lifted up, One worthy of reverence and praise. Hear My voice, beloved – roaring like the fiercest lion, and tremble in awe and the majesty of My presence. I AM Lord of all, El Elyon – God Most High.

Another Prophetic Nugget from Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Ministries is connected to this. It’s called “Look Ahead.”

Revelation 21:4 (AMPC) God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.

Beloved, resist the urge to get swept up in the cares and pains of this world. Remember that your time on earth is like the blink of an eye, while My Kingdom is everlasting. Sorrow may last for a night, but remember to embrace the joy of the new day – for it always comes.

The griefs and trials of today will pass, so be intentional to look ahead and align with eternity. Grieve, but don’t be overcome with grief. Trust My heart. Trust My plan. Allow My Spirit to comfort and encourage you. Rest in Me. Rely on Me. Hide yourself in Me. And look ahead.

A final Prophetic Nugget from Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Ministries is connected to this. It’s called “Rise Up at My Roar.”

Numbers 23:24 (VOICE) Look at this people rise up like a lion, like a lion who gets up and does not lie down until it devours its prey, even drinking the blood of the slain.

Beloved, rise up at My roar. Refuse to back down. You’ve no need to be intimidated, for the Lord of Hosts is your God and forever will I reign. So stand tall and proud, and take your place beside your King.

Refuse to shrink back, but rather move boldly – empowered by My Spirit, and walk in victory. For with Me, beloved, victory is assured. I AM the victorious One, and you belong to Me.

A Word called “Rise Up” from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings is connected to this.

1 Peter 5:8 (AMPC) Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

Rise up, My people, rise up. The alarm sounds for the time of war, and I need you to be awake and vigilant. There is much territory for the kingdom of light to take, and I have fully equipped you to cast out the kingdom of darkness. Therefore, take care not become lax and forget who you are and what I have called you to do. Resist the voice of defeat which would have you believe you are a victim of any earthly circumstance. Shake off the weariness of past battles fought in your own strength. A new day of war is ahead—a war already won by My might and My Spirit.

Behold, you are not ordinary—you are extraordinary, beloved ones. Your citizenship belongs to the Kingdom which is above. To possess a heavenly citizenship carries more weight than you realize. You are My kingly priests anointed for war, commissioned to take territory in My name. Resist the urge to become overwhelmed or discouraged by your commission; everything that you need to walk in this high calling is found in My all-encompassing Presence.

I have given you heavenly armor that will protect you from every attack of the evil one. And by My Spirit, you carry My holy vessels into the earthly battlefield. No weapon formed against you can prosper. No judgment made against you can stand. And no battle is too fierce for you, My people. For the Lion of the Tribe of Judah is always with you. When you rise up, I arise with you. When you agree to follow My lead and take new territory, I fight on your behalf. Therefore, again I say, My people, rise up! Rejoice, for your victory is always assured!

Numbers 10:35 (NKJV) So it was, whenever the ark set out, that Moses said: “Rise up, O LORD! Let Your enemies be scattered, And let those who hate You flee before You.”

Numbers 23:24 (VOICE)Look at this people rise up like a lion, like a lion who gets up and does not lie down until it devours its prey, even drinking the blood of the slain.

The silk hidden in this image is Sober & Vigilant. The colors in it are fire representing fierce passion, harvest orange representing refining fire, mahogany representing solemnity / sobriety, and soft gold representing authority.

Father, let us not be distracted by the things of this world or allow ourselves to be intoxicated with the pleasures of the world. You are at enmity with the world. We must choose a side. May we wisely choose You. May we echo Your awakening call and rouse the slumbering and inebriated – violently taking them back by force – and bring them to a place of sobriety and solemnity – watchful, eyes fixed on You.
