Isaiah 65:10 “Sharon will become a pasture for flocks, and the Valley of Achor a resting place for herds for my people who seek me.”
Hosea 2:15 “There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.”
The Lord has been speaking to many about this new season in the Body of Christ. Here at Lionheart, the Lord spoke to Mike McClung in 2009 using Joshua 3-5 as a paradigm. The Lord indicated to Mike that He was going to use Joshua 3-5 to illustrate the process of refining that He would take the Body of Christ through in the subsequent years. All of it would serve to prepare the Body of Christ to enter into the Promised Rest (Hebrews 4) where the works of the flesh cease; His enemies are made His footstool (Psalm 110); and the Presence and Glory of God can rest on the corporate Body of Christ. This year, the Lord spoke to Mike that as the nation of Israel observed Passover in the Promised Land after crossing over Jordan, this most recent Passover in 2019 marked the same position in this prophetic journey. And as they began to eat of the fruit of the land, so also the Body of Christ is beginning to “eat the fruit” of the new season and see the fulfillment of that Promised Rest in this region.
