“Call Upon Me – Before I Lift My Hand!”

Tuesday, August 22, 2017 posted by Diana Pulliam

Praying

Monday morning, August 21st, 2017, I was given an urgent word and vision, which I believe is meant for the entire Body of Christ.  It began with me getting together with a friend to pray.

As prayer went forth, we were led in the Spirit to pray for the Saints of God all over the world, that they rise up and come together as one.  The prayer grew in intensity, and then I saw the following vision:

The Church rose upon their feet and began coming together in small groups.  Then the most amazing thing began to happen.  As they came together in these small groups all over the earth, they began falling to their knees and crying out to the Lord in repentance, and I heard the following:

“Call upon Me while I may be found, before I lift My hand off you.”

“You MUST lead this charge!”           

“Humble yourselves before Me.”

These words were repeated several times, and each time I heard them, I was shown two things:

Jesus fasted 40 days before beginning His ministry. The Lord is asking us – His Body on the earth, to walk in His footsteps and humble ourselves before Him for the next 40 days.

Nineveh had 40 days to repent before judgment was to fall. The Lord showed a correlation between Nineveh and the nations of the world.  The next 40 days will play a role in how the judgments are meted out.

My friend then suddenly came over and placed a prayer shawl over me.  I continued in prayer for some time, feeling great agony and lamentation over the state of the Church and the nations of the world.  The United States in particular was repeatedly shown to me as I cried out in repentance.

Interpretation:

After receiving this word and sitting still in His presence, I was reminded of Jesus’ 40 days of fasting prior to the official beginning of His ministry.  In Romans 8:17, it says that if we suffer with Him, that we’ll also be glorified together with Him.  In the vision above, I saw the Church coming together and falling on their knees, and was told,

“Call upon Me while I may be found, before I lift My hand off you.”

“You MUST lead this charge!”           

“Humble yourselves before Me.”

I believe there to be a direct correlation between Christ’s 40 days of fasting, and the Church falling to their knees with instructions to, “Call upon Me…You MUST lead this charge!…Humble yourselves before Me.”

The Church is being asked to assemble before Him on our knees, to humble ourselves, and lead in this act of repentance before our God for the next 40 days.  After the 40 days, I believe something will have taken place in the spirit, and the Body of Christ will also enter into a new, powerful phase of ministry.

We’re being asked to humble ourselves and repent during this 40 day period, as well as being told,

“Call upon Me while I may be found, before I lift My hand off you.”

Along with the reference to Nineveh, this seems to indicate a 40 day period in which, if the nation(s) respond in prayer and repentance, it may alter and/or lessen the severity of pending judgment.

I believe it’s no “accident” this message was received, August 21, st  which happened to be a solar eclipse over the United States.  Solar eclipses have always been viewed by the Jews as God dealing with the gentile nations in the form of judgment.  I also believe it’s no accident that 40 days from the 21st, falls on September 30th, which is Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).

Yom Kippur is a most somber holy day for the Jews, and is preceded by 10 days of repentance beginning on Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets).  The ten days of penitence are seen by the Jews as opportunity for change, and they believe their fate is sealed on Yom Kippur.

Earlier in the morning, prior to receiving this message, I’d sent a text to another friend saying, “Just felt in the spirit; today there’s an alignment going on, and it represents a type of kick-off event in the spirit.  Everything is coming into perfect alignment.”

The main message here is for the Church. The Lord is preparing His Body, the very Bride of Christ, for the coming harvest.  Before she’s ready, a huge transition in the Spirit will have to take place. Although we’re only being shown pieces of the big picture, I believe this 40 day period is pivotal for the Church.

I’ve been asked if this means we’re to fast during this time.  The key here is to humble ourselves before Him.  This will look different for each individual.  My prayer group is fasting food once a week, and I’m recommending fasting other things on the remaining days.

Please pray over this message for further interpretation, and that the Lord  show you how to prepare personally.  Our Lord fasted 40 days, and His ministry was then launched powerfully by the Holy Spirit.  If His Church, the Bride of Christ, falls to her knees in obedience, humbling herself before Him, what will happen after this 40 days?

One thing is certain; The Lord is positioning His Body to bring us into perfect alignment for what He has prepared for us in the days just ahead. What a time to be alive!

Scripture References:

Johah 3:4, “…Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”

Matthew 4:2, 17, “And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry…From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Romans 8:17, “And if children, then heirs – heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”

1 Peter 5:6, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, so that in due time He may exalt you.”

James 4:10, “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.”

Philippians 2:8-11, “And being found in human form, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.  Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow…”
