Though this is a silk word, so far I have only made it in a Dyed4you flute. A beautiful one in Poplar with a Spalted Mango bird crafted by Mike Whallon of Grey Wolf Flutes and then dyed and finished by us 5th Temple Drone (keys of B/E). This word was inspired by the word I received from Amy Rylander called Lighthouse of Hope – more on that coming soon on MeghanW.com.
The name of your silk is Releaser of Hope. The colors in it are:
- White/pearl representing pure heart
- Golden yellow representing joy
- Chartreuse green representing speaking life
- Turquoise representing warfare hope
- Indigo representing deliverance
The scripture that goes with it is from Romans 15:13 (VOICE) I pray that God, the source of all hope, will infuse your lives with an abundance of joy and peace in the midst of your faith so that your hope will overflow through the power of the Holy Spirit.
A series of four Prophetic Nuggets from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams are connected to this. They’re based on Daniel 2:20-23 (VOICE) “Daniel: Praise the name of God forever and ever, for all wisdom and power belong to Him. He sets in motion the times and the ages; He deposes kings and installs others; He gives wisdom to the wise and grants knowledge to those with understanding. He reveals deep truths and hidden secrets; He knows what lies veiled in the darkness; pure light radiates from within Him. I recognize who You are, and I praise You, God of my ancestors, for You have given me wisdom and strength. And now You have graciously revealed to me what we asked of You, for You have revealed to us the king’s dream and its meaning.”
The first Prophetic Nugget is called “El Olam (the Everlasting God).”
Daniel 2:20 (VOICE) Daniel: Praise the name of God forever and ever, for all wisdom and power belong to Him.
Beloved, I AM El Olam, the everlasting God. I AM sovereign, and I AM King. All power and authority rest in My hands. So who could you turn to for wisdom or understanding that would be more capable than I AM? No one, for there is none in heaven or on earth whose understanding exceeds Mine.
Seek Me. Focus on Me. Praise and give glory to Me. Do so not out of a sense of obligation, but simply as joyous overflow. From generation to generation I AM faithful, so simply rest in Me. Stay firmly rooted in your faith, for you know unquestionably who I AM. Look to Me, beloved, and watch Me move.
The second Prophetic Nugget is called “YHVH Melek Olam (Lord King Forever).”
Daniel 2:21 (VOICE) He sets in motion the times and the ages; He deposes kings and installs others; He gives wisdom to the wise and grants knowledge to those with understanding.
Beloved, I AM YHVH Melek Olam, Lord King Forever. I AM sovereign and I AM not just wise, but wisdom itself is defined by Me. So look to Me for wisdom. Refuse to be tossed about by the opinions and assertions of men, which are fickle – an ever moving target. Instead trust Me to be your firm foundation, for I AM steadfast and unshakable.
Trust Me to give you the wisdom you need as you need it. And trust Me to grant you the knowledge and understanding you will also need to go with it. For I see the beginning from the end. And as you stay in tune with Me, I will give you all you need.
The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Gelah Raz (the Revealer of Mysteries).”
Daniel 2:22 (VOICE) He reveals deep truths and hidden secrets; He knows what lies veiled in the darkness; pure light radiates from within Him.
Beloved, seek Me and come prepared to explore. Boundless revelation is at My fingertips, and nothing is hidden from Me. Walk in My light of truth – absorb the warmth of its rays. No darkness can hide from Me, for darkness cannot combat light – it simply must surrender.
So stand with Me, and allow Me and the light of My love and countenance to illuminate that which was previously hidden in darkness and obscurity. Then allow seeing with new eyes and understanding by My Spirit to completely change the way you act and think.
But know, beloved, that to whom much is given, much is also required. So walk in the fullness of this increased wisdom and revelation with sobriety and circumspection. As you walk in the light, reflect the light, and move in love and grace.
The fourth Prophetic Nugget is called “Attiyq Youm (the Ancient of Days).”
Daniel 2:23 (VOICE) I recognize who You are, and I praise You, God of my ancestors, for You have given me wisdom and strength…
Beloved, I AM Attiyq Youm, the Ancient of Days. I have forever been and will forever be. I AM. I have created you. My fingerprints are on the very fiber of your being. Your soul and spirit know and recognize Me instinctively. Give praise for you are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made.
As you ask Me for wisdom, I freely supply it. So ask, beloved, and be ready and willing to listen when I respond. For only a fool would ask a question only to leave before hearing an answer. So quiet your heart, and make room for Me to speak. Then walk in the wisdom you have been given.
Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “I AM Increasing You.”
Isaiah 54:2-3 (VOICE) Enlarge your house. You are going to need a bigger place; don’t underestimate the amount of room that you’ll need. So build, build, build. You will increase in every direction to fill the world. Your offspring will take over the nations; Your people will revitalize long-abandoned towns.
Beloved, I have more for you than you can begin to imagine. Keep your gaze fixed on Me and pursue Me with determined intent, then make ready for increase and pour out from your overflow.
I AM increasing you to the left and the right. I AM blessing you with more than enough because I know you are generous and will share liberally. Be intentional to remember that I AM the giver, and I give in abundance. Refuse to align with lack. Trust Me, and trust My hand as I move in and through you.
Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Reflecting Me.”
Isaiah 2:5 (VOICE) O house of Jacob— people of the promise —come, come walk with me by the light of the Eternal.
Beloved, fall in love with the light, for you are a child of the day and the darkness will not overcome you. For you shine, beloved, as your countenance reflects My glory. So dwell in My presence, and allow My love to saturate you fully.
Then, beloved, as you walk in that glorious warm glow of one who knows Me and is loved by Me, others will be drawn in. For My love is irresistible, and My light is life to their bones. So shine, beloved, and shine brightly, knowing you are reflecting Me.
A Meditation of the Word called “Spring of Hope” from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings is connected to this.
John 4:13-14 (NKJV) Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
There is a saying that goes, “Hope springs eternal.” As someone who battled the darkness of depression for over ten years, I once struggled to believe that such a thing was true. Anyone who has faced depression knows that hopelessness is a key component in that battle. Wounds of the past can cast such shadows on our path, that it can be hard to imagine and hope for better experiences in life.
Yet I after walking with God out of depression and through years of emotional healing, I can say with certainty that He is an eternal spring of hope for the hopeless. During times when the Master Surgeon has worked upon my heart, I have faced low moments where hope seemed hard to find. Yet the Holy Spirit has always been faithful to bring to mind words of life He had spoken through dear brothers and sister in Christ. Those words acted as a mirror meant to remind me of who I am in Christ at just the right moment. God would take those simple words of truth and increase them exponentially. Suddenly, the barren landscape of my heart would be flooded with His love and everlasting life.
Beloved of God, refuse to underestimate the power of the words that God releases through you to others! Speaking words of encouragement to people may seem insignificant when compared to the trials and circumstances they are facing. I know all too well how powerless I have felt in such moments, even though God was the one prompting me to release His words.
However, the Apostle Paul reminds us in 1 Corinthians 3:7 that it is God who gives the increase from our spiritual work. Faithfully speak what Holy Spirit gives you, and watch how God moves. You can trust that, in due time, hope will spring up in the barren places through the words of life you release.
Romans 5:5 (NKJV) Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
1 Corinthians 3:7 (NKJV) So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.
A portion of a post by Meghan Williams from Dyed4youMinistries.com is connected to this. It’s called “Speak Life (Ezekiel 37).”
Be intentional, beloved, to speak life into that which you wish to see grow. Bless, and do not curse. Extend grace and forgiveness even when none is warranted. Remember that you yourself were once in need of it from Me and it was not withheld. Life begets life. So sow life and reap more life. Bless, and share My love simply because you are able. Be a vessel of good, and a mouthpiece of truth – My truth. Be rooted in love, and speak life.
Ezekiel 37:3-10 (VOICE) [including Voice commentary]
Eternal One (to Ezekiel): Son of man, do you think these bones can live?
Ezekiel: Eternal Lord, certainly You know the answer better than I do.
Eternal One: Actually, I do. Prophesy to these bones. Tell them to listen to what the Eternal Lord says to them: “Dry bones, I will breathe breath into you, and you will come alive. I will attach muscles and tendons to you, cause flesh to grow over them, and cover you with skin. I will breathe breath into you, and you will come alive. After this happens, you will know that I am the Eternal.” [God is not only the Creator of life, but He is also the Restorer of life.]
So I did what God told me to do: I prophesied to the bones. As I was speaking, I heard a loud noise—a rattling sound—and all the bones began to come together and form complete skeletons. I watched and saw muscles and tendons attach to the bones, flesh grow over them, and skin wrap itself around the reforming bodies. But there was still no breath in them.
Eternal One: Prophesy to the breath. Speak, son of man, and tell them what the Eternal Lord has to say: “O sweet breath, come from the four winds and breathe into these who have been killed. Make these corpses come alive.”
So I did what God told me to do: I prophesied to the breath. As I was speaking, breath invaded the lifeless. The bodies came alive and stood on their feet. I realized then I was looking at a great army.
Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Be Steadfast in Hope and Shine.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11 (AMP) Therefore encourage and comfort one another and build up one another, just as you are doing.
Beloved, I have wired you to speak life and give hope. Shore up the broken ones around you. Let them be bolstered by your own overflow of faith. Live and walk in the light, for as solar power is charged by the sun, so you are emboldened and your own faith quickened and invigorated by basking in the glory of My presence.
So reflect Me, and do so unashamedly. As you live your life for Me, people cannot help but see and be encouraged as they see my hand at work. So walk in joy. Walk in truth. Be steadfast in hope. And shine, beloved. Shine.
A portion of the Dyed4you Art word Beacon of Hope is connected to this.
Merriam-Webster defines “beacons” as a strong light or something that guides or gives hope. You are called to be a beacon of hope. One with a solid foundation (the Word of God) and one moved by the wind (His Spirit) while set aflame by fire (the fire of God).
An article on the US Lighthouse Society called “Lighthouse Lamps Through Time” by Thomas Tag shares, “The early mariner’s warning lights consisted chiefly of open fires and later of fire beacons…They were often unreliable because of the variability between burning well, with lots of flame and therefore light, or burning poorly with little flame or much smoke obscuring the light.” In the same way make sure your oil is fresh (oil of the Holy Spirit) and your flame burning bright!
A word from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings called “Lighthouse Movement” is connected to this. Among other encouragements, it reminds us that in order to grasp the hidden mysteries of scripture one must be a bold explorer.
My Beloved Bride, I call you forth now to restore My people. Help My people to safe harbor. Emit My Light and mark the danger zones for them. Help those who have gone astray, and guide them safely to shore.
There’s no need for you to be afraid anymore. Walk in the way that I have shown you. I will be there in your midst. There are many dangers on the path home, so I need you to help them to cross over. Share with them the gospel. Be My light in dark waters. Permit Me to share with you hidden meanings of the lesser known truths of gospel. Submit My writings to you with others who are lost and hurting. Remember, I will be with you.
I AM the LORD. I brought you out of Egypt and out of the house of bondage. You will have no other gods before Me. Purify yourself daily in the water of My Word that you may have clean hands and a pure heart. Do not lift your soul up to an idol. Acknowledge Me in all your ways and I will make your path straight. Fear Me, submit to Me. I will be your shelter in the coming storm. I have prepared a place for you. Walk firmly in the things I have taught you and I Myself will be your shelter. Believe Me and trust Me, dear one. I have a plan for you.
Father, thank You for the privilege of being a beacon of hope – of being one who draws others to You and help others see You. Thank You for Your fire and wind that lift and direct us, carrying us above-over-through that which could seek to harm or ensnare us, and for giving us the blessing of showing others the way. May You be glorified in and through us!
A post by Meghan Williams from MeghanW.com is connected to this. It’s called “Choose to Be a Luminary.”
Matthew 5:16 (TPT) So don’t hide your light! Let it shine brightly before others, so that the commendable things you do will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.”
Having spent nearly a decade and a half in ministry, one of the travesties I’ve seen over and over is people believing they are less than they are. When I look at them, I see a lion, but when they look in the mirror they believe they’re seeing just a kitten – powerless and ineffectual. I’m not sure why we all seem to have an inclination to believe the worst of ourselves and the the truth is hard to receive, but it seems to be the case.
And yet in truth though we may believe the worst, on some level we HOPE that we are wrong. We HOPE that we truly are powerful and able to make a difference. What we fear is failing in that capacity. So we unconsciously come into agreement with the lies we’ve been told about ourselves (or had reflected to us), and decide to live smaller than our call. Thinking somehow this is safer. And yet, doing so leaves us feeling unfulfilled and robs the world of the blessing we are meant to be.
A quote from Marianne Williamson’s “A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of ‘A Course in Miracles’” speaks to this.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
We must choose to be luminaries. Choose to shine unashamed and without holding back. As we walk in our true identity of children of the Light, we lead the way for others to do the same. And through that we are able to spur one another on to be our best selves. And isn’t that truly what the Body of Christ is called to do?
This then becomes a powerful witness to the world – as we walk boldly in our authentic selves, in unity with our brothers and sisters. That is a beautiful Kingdom – the Kingdom of God in evidence. What a glorious way to give honor to our King.
1 Thessalonians 5:5 (VOICE) For you are all children of light. You are sons and daughters of the day. We are not created of night, nor are we owned by darkness.
Matthew 5:14-16 (VOICE) And you, beloved, are the light of the world. A city built on a hilltop cannot be hidden. Similarly it would be silly to light a lamp and then hide it under a bowl. When someone lights a lamp, she puts it on a table or a desk or a chair, and the light illumines the entire house. You are like that illuminating light. Let your light shine everywhere you go, that you may illumine creation, so men and women everywhere may see your good actions, may see creation at its fullest, may see your devotion to Me , and may turn and praise your Father in heaven because of it .
A final Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Tenacious Hope.”
Romans 15:13 (TPT) Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with his super-abundance until you radiate with hope!
Beloved, may you be filled with contagious hope. May your hope be so tenacious that no circumstance or harsh words can quell it, no disappointment or confusion can dim it, and no delayed promise or unexpected direction can subdue it.
May your hope be so apparent and so steadfast that those around you can’t help but have their own hope stirred and fortified. As you draw from Me – the fountain of hope, may your reserves be filled to overflowing that you may share with those around from your surplus that you might be known as a releaser of hope.
It has been prayed over and anointed with the Scent of Heaven’s Breath of God, which brings life! God is fully able to breathe life even into things or situations that seem completely dead. His breath – His life – brings full and complete restoration. The scripture that goes with this oil is, “Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:” Ezekiel 37:5
We pray it blesses you!
