The Lord Is About To Send Forth His Arrow by Christine Beadsworth


The Lord Is About To Send Forth His Arrow by Christine Beadsworth

Hello precious friend

Just wanted to share. Today , 10th Nov, in worship, I saw an arrow head superimposed upon the congregation and heard the scripture

 Zec 9:14  And the Lord shall be seen over them and His arrow shall go forth as the lightning, and the Lord God will blow the trumpet and will go forth in the windstorms of the south. 

The Lord is about to send forth His arrow. Then the arrowhead changed to the nib of a fountain pen and ink began to flow out of it. I thought to myself that the Lord was beginning to write the next chapter of history - HIS STORY – through the lives of the saints whose laid-down lives was flowing in the form of ink from the pen nib.  He is the fountain of life so Him using a FOUNTAIN pen makes sense!! Then to my surprise, the nib began to write a score of music. It flowed very quickly and the Lord pointed out to me that each note was placed in a different position on the musical score sheet. When I asked what the music was that He was writing, He said He is writing a new song to be sung in the earth in the coming season and directed me to Revelation chapter seven:

 Rev 7:11  And all the angels stood around the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Rev 7:12  Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. 

This is the declaration that is made when the huge crowd who have come out of the great tribulation, stand before the throne. I had not realized that this was a worship song! And here before my eyes, God the Heavenly Composer was writing the music for this song’s words, using the carefully and deliberately positioned lives of the bond-slaves of the Lord (those described as having the seal of the Lord upon their foreheads in Rev 7:3; the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes). I saw how the ink flowed from the pen and with its’ stroke, flowing music was being made in the heavenlies. 

Then I felt the Holy Spirit say very emphatically that we are to allow the Lord to position us in the symphony exactly as He chooses and are not to compare our places to other around us for they will not be the same. We are to arise and shine and make our sounds with our whole hearts as the vessels God has created us to be and not to worry about how our note fits into the whole score. In these days God is positioning and pouring out His vessels with the whole symphony in mind. Even those who feel they don’t fit in with anyone else on their part of the page are to keep sounding forth because they are part of the harmony, not the melody.

Then I was shown invisible ink, such as we used to use as children. Onion juice used as ink dries invisible on a page but the warmth of a flame causes it to become visible. In exactly the same way, I believe that God has been writing this new musical score for a while already but there is outwardly no evidence of it. He has hidden us as His polished arrows; quietly placing and positioning us to a musical score only heavenly ears can hear. However as the heat of the Day that burns like an oven, increases, this music that God’s hand has written will become more and more evident in the earth and the sounds that our lives are making in God’s ear, will be heard by the ears of those around us. The symphony of praise and worship which John’s ears heard will begin to resound all across the earth in a mighty crescendo of worship to the One who sits on the throne – “Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God forever and ever!”

So our part is to yield and allow His hand to move and place us wherever He sees fit and then to pour out ourselves as He directs; not worrying if those observing can hear or see what it is God is doing. Do it all for the One who sits on the throne and in due time, the heat of that Day will bring in the harvest of souls without number who are described in Rev 7:9 and cause the song of worship to resound through earth and heaven. You making your sound will bring the harvest in! Be ready!

There are two companies, those before the throne who are without number, and those around the throne (in a circle according to the Greek word used) who are ‘angels’, meaning ‘angel, pastor, messenger’. On the 6th November this year a sign in the sky appeared in the form of a perfect circle of rainbow round the sun here in South Africa. This is a depiction of the company, the messengers who are flames of fire who surround the Son upon the throne, endowed with the seven spirits of God –  a hundred and forty four thousand being a figurative number depicting ‘the complete number who were to be sealed’ - and as Revelation 14 describes, they sing a new song unto the Lord. Did you notice that? – a NEW SONG! The song to which the musical score is presently being written and the notes positioned on the parchment of earth’s globe.

Rev 14:1  And I saw, and lo, a Lamb having stood upon the mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty-four thousand, having the name of his Father written upon their foreheads; Rev 14:2  and I heard a voice out of the heaven, as a voice of many waters, and as a voice of great thunder, and a voice I heard of harpers harping with their harps, Rev 14:3  and they sing, as it were, a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders, and no one was able to learn the song except the hundred forty-four thousands, who have been bought from the earth; Rev 14:4  these are they who with women were not defiled, for they are virgin; these are they who are following the Lamb whithersoever he may go; these were bought from among men--a first-fruit to God and to the Lamb-- 

In effect, the Holy Spirit is honouring Jehovah God with the first-fruits of His wealth of souls by writing a song to the glory of God through the sound of their lives!

love you,

keep shining. Keep singing. Keep pouring out! He is singing over you as He directs your laid-down life!
