Its about to get HOT HOT HOT!!! Which brings me to HOT TEA. What is HOT TEA? Its a HOT drink made by infusing the dried crushed leaves of the TEA plant in BOILING water. HOT TEA also indicates a time of soothing, calming down and slowing down. Its also a revival time of refreshing, salvation, grace and good news.
“For he has said to them, “This is your rest, so let the weary rest; this is your comfort” Isaiah 28:12(TPT)
Have you felt the intensity and the HEAT in this season? This BOILING HEAT will not kill you, but it will make you stronger. The Lord is preparing you during this BOILING POINT for the next step. Embrace this process and RELAX with a CUP OF TEA!
What the Lord showed me in my dream was water starting to BOIL in a TEA POT, but it BOILED 7 times HOTTER than usual. I saw the water BOILING and thickening with dirty foam on the top layer of water. I saw a large spoon begin to skim off the thick icky layer of foam sitting on top of the water. All the UNWANTED is RISING to the top and being REMOVED. There was a TEA bag placed into the BOILING water. The longer the TEA BAG sat in the BOILING water the STRONGER in taste and COLOR it got! I heard the Lord say “Its time to pick out your TEA CUP, because we are ready for TEA TIME.” I saw the Lords breath blow on the TEA to cool it so it was perfectly drinkable! In my dream this TEA TIME was near EASTER.
Many have felt like they have been thrown into the fire and just when they thought they couldn’t stand in it anymore it was turned up 7 times HOTTER! As we are at our BOILING POINT in this heated season the UNWANTED things in us like fear, anxiety, lies, wounds, anger and disappointment are RISING in us to the TOP and the Lord is skimming it off of us. As he uses his big spoon and he is about to STIR things up in our lives. He is BURNING and BOILING the SCUM away so that you can be the person he created YOU to be!
All the things in life that had tried to destroy you has only made you STRONGER! You became STRONG BREWED TEA!! For such a time as this! It has made you STRONGER to NOW walk into what the Lord has planned for you to walk in. God is in full control of his “Anointed Ones” Which reminds me of the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who were cast into a fiery furnace and came out ALIVE!
19 “Then Nebuchadnezzar became very angry with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. He gave an order for the oven to be heated seven times hotter than it usually was. 20 Then he commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. He told the soldiers to throw them into the hot furnace.
21 So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were tied up and thrown into the hot furnace. They were wearing their robes, pants, cloth caps, and other clothes. 22 The king was very angry when he gave the command, so the soldiers quickly made the furnace very hot. The fire was so hot that the flames killed the strong soldiers. They were killed when they went close to the fire to throw in Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. 23 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego fell into the fire. They were tied up very tightly.
24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar jumped to his feet. He was very surprised and he asked his advisors, “We tied only three men, and we threw only three men into the fire. Is that right?”
His advisors said, “Yes, King.”
25 The king said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire. They are not tied up and they are not burned. The fourth man looks like an angel.[e]”
26 Then Nebuchadnezzar went to the opening of the hot furnace. He shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, come out! Servants of the Most High God, come here!”
So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out of the fire. 27 When they came out, the satraps, prefects, governors, and royal advisors crowded around them. They could see that the fire had not burned Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Their bodies were not burned at all. Their hair was not burned, and their robes were not burned. They didn’t even smell as if they had been near fire.
28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Their God has sent his angel and saved his servants from the fire! These three men trusted their God and refused to obey my command. They were willing to die instead of serving or worshiping any other god. 29 So I now make this law: Anyone from any nation or language group who says anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego will be cut into pieces, and their house will be destroyed until it is a pile of dirt and ashes. No other god can save his people like this.” 30 Then the king gave Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego more important jobs in the province of Babylon.” Daniel 3:19-30
Don’t get confused in the BOILING POT. We may not always perceive the Lord in the midst of the fiery trial. These men emerged from an impossible unharmed situation and were quickly promoted! The BOILING won’t destroy your calling it will allow you to walk into your calling! Jesus always walks with us in the fiery BOILING POT of trials and his presence will turn things around from bad to good, as he uses his spoon to STIR us and make us a STONGER BREW!
The Lord says “Where the fiery BOILING water of opposition attempted to define you in this season, I am releasing you to walk into your calling 7 times STRONGER!”
The Lord is allowing all the thick icky scum of unwanted things to rise to the surface with INTENSITY, because he is going to change everything. Where the enemy has tried to BURN you out, you will now BURN 7 TIMES STRONGER into your calling!
What to expect now is to RELAX and REST with your comforting TEA. That’s what TEA does. It RELAXES you after a CRAZY day!
“Now I can say to myself and to all, “Relax and rest, be confident and serene, for the Lord rewards fully those who simply trust in him.” Psalm 116:7(TPT)
The scene is shifting! The Lord is rescuing you from the BOILING POT, he is going to calm things down as he cools the water. He wants you to pick out your cup and get it ready. As you sip on this TEA your heart and soul will be able to RELAX and REST. It will be a time of peace and the atmosphere will be calm and untroubled. The Lord has been building, maturing and making you STRONGER for this moment.
God is leading his people out of captivity. He is leading them into PEACE in this NEW DAY! You will walk in strength and maturity into your callings with such a peace in your heart. You will move FORWARD with no storm hanging over your head and no unsettledness of heart. You are entering into this NEW RELM of RELAXATION. BREATH IN and BREATH OUT! You will ARISE with a BOLDNESS that is UNSHAKEABLE!
“So we conclude that there is still a full and complete “rest” waiting for believers to experience. As we enter into God’s faith-rest life we cease from our own works, just as God celebrates his finished works and rests in them.” Hebrews 4:9-11(TPT)
He is bringing REST to the HEART and SOUL. Sip and SAVOR this TEA in this NEW SEASON. You are entering into the land of REST where the battle ends!
“And the Lord allowed them to have peace on all sides of their land, just as he had promised their ancestors. None of their enemies defeated them.” Joshua 21:44(ERV)
This TEA TIME was around EASTER TIME. The power of God was demonstrated with the RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ.
“The power of my death on the cross and the words I declared “It is finished” John 19:30
There is a DEEP physical REST being entered into the body of Christ. Where the battle will finally end! It is finished!
“Stop dwelling on the past. Don’t even remember these former things. I am doing something brand new, something unheard of. Even now it sprouts and grows and matures. Don’t you perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and open up flowing streams in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19(TPT)
There has been a dying process for many in the BOILING POT, but the RESURRECTION power of Jesus brings his people back to life even STRONGER. Don’t FLEE, but DECREE!
Many have felt that there has been a death that has happened inside of them. Feeling that their dreams stopped breathing and living. There is a RESURRECTION happening in Jesus name! You will no longer drown in the BOILING POT, you will RISE with STRENGTH and RESURRECTION! You are being RESURRECTED by his power like never before. You have stared death in the face, now you will stare VICTORY in the face! I see hearts being RESURRECTED! Dreams being RESURRECTED and visions being RESURRECTED! What looks impossible and dead, God is going to RESURRECT. For nothing is impossible for God!
As the Lord BLEW on the HOT TEA, he was BLOWING life back into your DREAMS and VISIONS! They are coming back to life! REST and RELAX in him and let your excitement build. RELAX in his beautiful love and goodness. We need to remain in RESTED FAITH.
