During worship on Sunday the 11th of April, I saw a vision of a champagne bottle being shaken.
The bottle was made of fine glass, and both the label as well as the wrapping on the cork were made of beautiful gold. The bottle looked costly and extravagant.
I saw that the bottle was being shaken and shaken until the pressure was nearly too much for the bottle to handle. Bubbles were rising up, and I could feel anticipation in my Spirit. I then saw a Great thumb come down from Heaven and pop the cork off the bottle! The explosion was HUGE, and what was in the bottle began to spray everywhere.
Dictionary.com defines this type of “explosion” as: a sudden, rapid, or great increase.
Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you. – Ephesians 6:10 TPT
It is important to note that the bottle being shaken was costly. It wasn’t a cheap, ordinary bottle of cola. This was an extraordinary bottle of champagne that one would see at a grand celebration!
I felt the Lord encourage us as the Bride of Christ to surrender to the shaking; surrender to the pressure. When the shaking stops and the bottle is UNCORKED, His explosive power has the opportunity to flow through us and be far reaching, with great increase!
Also, I felt a firm warning from His Father heart to not settle for ordinary. I heard His invitation to RISE to the EXTRAORDINARY! He reminded me of the cost of that bottle of champagne, as well as the fact that the explosion was far reaching and not just a refreshing drink for a “now” season.
We are moving beyond a "now" season, friends. When the Bride is "uncorked," there will be an ongoing increase, a celebration, and a move of Heaven on Earth like we have only ever dreamed.
Friends, it’s time to surrender to the shaking! We are about to be “uncorked," and I anticipate that the celebration is just beginning!
