Prophetic Vision: You Can Go Double Speed During This Escalator Season

by | Feb 19, 2018 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

Have you ever had one of those times where you’re just starting to wake up but you’re not fully awake yet, so you’re still dreaming? The Lord gives me a lot of visions during those kinds of times.

Recently, I was having a dream that turned into a vision. In the vision, I had just gotten off of an airplane, and I was in an airport. I was walking through the ground floor, and there were hundreds of people moving around, going in many different directions. I was maneuvering around the many different people, trying to move fast to get to my next gate. I was unable to move very quickly because all of the people were going so many different directions and blocking my path. But I didn’t let anyone stop; I just kept moving forward. Finally, after stepping over people’s luggage and maneuvering around, I reached the escalator. Once I stepped on the escalator, I took a deep sigh of relief.

When I got on the escalator, I heard the Lord say, “Take a deep breath and rest.” Then the Lord showed me immediately that when you get to this place in your life, you are not actively doing anything. But because you have reached the escalator, you are doing two things: moving up and moving forward. When you are on an escalator, you move up and move forward at the same time. The Lord spoke to me again and said, “There are many people who, if they could get to this place in their lives, would experience and acceleration they would not believe.”

In the vision, once I was a third of the way up, the Lord said, “You can go double-speed if you want to. You can start taking the steps up if you want to. While I am moving you upward and forward at the same time, you can go double-speed.” I started moving up the steps on the escalator, and when I got to the top, I reached a long clear hallway where everyone was going in the same direction and moving quickly.

In the next part of the vision, I boarded the airport tram, and it shot forward taking me very quickly to my gate. When I got off of the airport tram, I boarded a very large, very nice airplane, one that was going to take me quickly to my next destination.

After I had this vision, the Lord said to me, “Everyone is somewhere in that vision.” What the Lord showed me was that there are some people on the ground level, where there is chaos. Everyone is moving in a different direction, and no one is moving quickly. Some are on the ground level because of delays, and some are caught up with their baggage. Some of them don’t have a clear direction of where they are supposed to be heading next. There are also those who have fought through the chaos, refusing to slow down, and have reached the escalator. When you are on the escalator, you can rest and relax, because God is moving you up and moving you forward by the Spirit. Then there are those who have reached the next level, and they are surrounded by people who are all going in the same direction and are moving forward quickly. There are also those who have reached an accelerated speed with people on the tram. Then there are those who have boarded the plane. These are those who are pointed toward a specific direction and are being elevated to move into what God has for them at a rapid pace.

I challenge you, where are you in this vision? God is looking for those in this hour to keep moving forward. Ask yourself where the Lord is wanting to take you. Everyone is on one of these levels in their lives. It is up to you to keep moving forward past the obstacles. Surround yourself with people who are all moving in the same direction as you. This is an escalator season for many! The Lord has seen you break through, and He is moving you up and moving you forward at the same time. {eoa}
