AN ARMY OF ANNA'S

This Article was taken from Trumpet Wind email
While staying in the home of an older lady (age
63) this weekend, I heard the Lord begin to speak to me about an
army of Anna's coming forth......This is what I heard..
Luke 2:36-37, " There was also a prophetess Anna, the
daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old;
she lived with her husband seven years after her marriage and
then was a widow until the age of 84. She never left the temple,
but worshipped night and day, fasting and praying."
AND YOUR OLD WOMEN . . . RISING UP OUT
And I heard the Lord say, "An Army of
Anna's".....And your old women will dream, dreams and upon
my handmaids I will pour out my spirit.! For God is renewing a
work in the midst of the years. I see an army of older
women....60 and above who are rising up out of obscurity and
taking their places in the house of the Lord. Once again the
scripture is coming to pass that the older women will teach the
younger. I see a releasing of women who were once bound by
circumstances, both physical and spiritual coming into their
destinies of extravagant worshippers. These are those who have
stood the test of time and endured many hardships. The
limitations and the hindrances are being taken off and the
wisdom of God and the discipline of a set apart life is coming
forth! The desire for worldly entertainment is being removed and
instead they will fill their days and hours with the Word and
the presence of God.
PERFUME FOR THE MASTER'S FEET
For their greatest desire and fulfillment will be to pour out
expensive perfume on the feet of the Master. And I see a great
healing because of this and order returning to the house of God.
I see religion and tradition and the mindsets of men falling off
and true worship returning to the House of God.
MINISTRIES NEVER BEFORE CONSIDERED
I also see these women being released into ministries they would
have never before considered. They will move out of their
comfort zones and move into the harvest fields. For I see the
glory of God on their heads and I see that through their touch,
many will be saved and healed....!!!! Hallelujah.....Jesus,
release this and let it come forth! Amen....
HANNAH'S WOMB AND THE BIRTHING OF MANY SAMUEL'S
by Sis. Ching Co, Cebu City Philippines (ching@GSILINK.COM)
There are many people within the body of Christ
that have been called spiritual Hannah's. God has used your
lives as spiritual wombs where the Holy Spirit has planted
heavenly visions and dreams. You have carried these visions and
allowed them to grow deep within despite the outward signs of
barrenness and seemingly fruitlessness in the past years. And
like Hannah, year after year, you did not stop crying out to the
Lord to bring to life all that you've sensed growing inside of
you. You have faced provocation, you have cried bitter tears.
Like Hannah, you have been mistaken for a drunk because of your
desperate cries for help.
THE MOMENT OF BIRTH
The Lord wants to announce to every one who has walked this path
that your season for birth is at hand. As the Lord remembered
Hannah and in the course of time she conceived and gave birth to
Samuel (1 Samuel 1:19-20)-- So your time for giving birth to
your Samuel has also come and is now at hand.
WHOLLY DEDICATED TO THE LORD
But like Hannah who brought Samuel to the house of the Lord and
gave him to the Lord and he worshipped the Lord there-- So many
of the Samuel's that will be birthed in the coming days will
belong totally to the Lord.
LIKENED TO ABRAHAM
Like Abraham, your Isaac will soon be born to you. And in the
same way that God instructed Abraham to offer Isaac as a burnt
offering-- So you too have to offer your Isaac to God. (Genesis
22:1-2) "Even now, prepare your hearts" says the Lord.
"Learn to let go even before You received them [your Isaacs
and your Samuels]. Take hold of them lightly for they belong to
Many visions that God has planted in the spiritual wombs of His
people are about to come to fullness. However, like Hannah
everyone of them will belong to God from the moment of birth. He
will raise up others to care and make this vision grow-- and
like Hannah, many who have carried them will have to watch their
spiritual visions grow from a distance.
The Lord is saying today that we must not be afraid to let go of
our Samuel's once they are birthed-- No matter how young they
look and regardless of the surroundings where they will grow.
The Lord will overshadow these visions and--just like Samuel,
God's hand will be upon them and He will not allow these visions
to die but will fulfill the purpose for which they have been
birthed. (3 Samuel 3:19-20) Even now the Lord is speaking to
many of the spiritual Hannah's and encouraging us to lay our
spiritual Samuel's to Him. He wants full control of how these
visions will be fulfilled. He will determine and chart the path
that they will take to grow. He may choose to call and appoint
others to do this, or He may, in due time return stewardship of
these visions to us.
However the Lord would choose to do this, He desires for His
children to have that assurance that our coming Samuel's will be
in GOOD HANDS -- HIS HANDS.
In the same manner that the Lord was with Samuel as he grew up ,
and he let none of his words fall to the ground-- and Samuel's
words came to all Israel (3 Samuel 19-20)-- So the Most High God
will do the same with every one of our spiritual Samuel's.
May the peace of the Most High God flood our soul as we choose
to walk the path that Hannah did. And may these words from the
mouth of Hannah becomes ours too as we rejoice in the victory
that the Lord will bring to those who love and obey Him all the
HANNAH'S PRAYER: ( 1 Samuel 2:1-12)
Then Hannah prayed and said:
"My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is
lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in
your deliverance. "There is no one holy like the Lord;
there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.
"Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak
such arrogance, for the Lord is a God who knows and by him deeds
are weighed. "The bows of the warriors are broken, but
those who stumbled are armed with strength. " Those who
were full hire themselves out for food, but those who were
hungry hunger no more. She who was barren has borne seven
children, but she who has had many sons pines away. "The
Lord brings death and makes alive; he brings down to the grave
and raises up. "The Lord sends poverty and wealth; he
humbles and he exalts. "He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with
princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. "For the
foundations of the earth are the Lord's; upon them he has set
the world. "He will guard the feet of his saints, but the
wicked will be silenced in darkness. " It is not by
strength that one prevails; those who oppose the Lord will be
shattered. He will thunder against them from heaven; the Lord
will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to his
king and exalt the horns of his anointed." Then Elkanah
went home to Ramah, but the boy ministered before the Lord under
Eli the priest.
