This is the third of three visions that the Lord has given me concerning the progression of the Third Day Church. The
first vision was written just after the season of the Third Day began.
I had a vision of The Bridge that the Lord was building. In that vision Jesus called His people out of Christian City
(Mystery Babylon) and led them up a path called Zion's Way to the top of the mountain. At the top of the mountain a
deep canyon separated the Second Day from the Third Day where Zion was to be established.
The people were required to lay their baggage down before they could cross over the bridge of faith and enter Zion. The
baggage represented bondages that the people carried. In that vision I saw many people who desired to serve the Lord
lay their baggage down and cross over into Zion, the city of God. The vision ended with the Church of the Firstborn
entering the city called Zion as they passed through the gates of that great city.
The second vision was A Vision of Three Houses. In this vision I saw a multitude of people (those who crossed the
bridge) milling around in the courtyards of the Great City. These had crossed over into the Third Day, but they were not
sure about what they should be doing. I then saw three houses in Zion, which were called the House of Restoration, the
House of Priests, and the House of Kings.
These houses were for the purpose of preparing the Third Day Church to rule and reign with Jesus Christ in this,
the Day of His Power. The third house (kings) was the last house into which we would enter and be taught by the Master
Teacher. This house was a place of preparation for the kings of the earth (Revelation 21:24). This house would prepare
the kings of the Third Day to rule with Jesus over the spiritual kingdoms of this world.
The third vision began with the voice of the Master, "Behold, the graduation ceremony of the kings of this day.
These are those who have been taught by Me concerning this present season. These are those who have been
equipped by My Spirit to rule and reign with Me as joint heirs. These are those who are dwelling in the Tabernacle of
David, the house that I have rebuilt. These are those who will sit upon the thrones of David (Psalm 122:5). These are
those who will bind the kings who are the rulers of darkness of this age."
"Behold, the graduation of My kings, for they shall now go forth in the power of My authority, and they will lead many into
My house, and they too will be taught and equipped by My Spirit. This indeed is the Day of My power, and the rod of My
authority will be sent forth from Zion (Psalm 110:2-3)."
"Again, I say, behold the graduation of My kings." And, so I did, and this is what I observed. I saw what appeared to be a
large celestial stage. The Lord was standing at the center of this spiritual platform. He raised a trumpet to His mouth and
blew three loud blasts that seemed to shake all of heaven. At the sound of the third blast a procession of graduates
formed a large circle around the Lord. The graduates wore white robes, clean and bright, and they each wore a red cap
like those worn today at graduation ceremonies.
The Lord congratulated them, as a group, for their diligence to enter into the House of the Kings by faith and to pursue
the knowledge of the Lord and His purposes for the Day of His power. The Master then proceeded around the
circle, and He put a ring on the right hand of the graduates. When He had finished He stood again in the center of the
circle, and He said, "The name of this ring is The Ring of Righteousness. This is a signet ring, and it represents the
power of attorney to use My name. This ring represents the bond of My seal, which is My promise to confirm your words
with signs and wonders. Be about My Father's business, and do it in My name."
The Lord again proceeded around the circle, and this time He placed a scepter in the right hand of the graduates. The
scepters were made of wrought iron, and on the top of each one was the symbol of a cross. The bottom of the scepter
was shaped like the head of a serpent.
Once again, the Master stood at the center of the circle, and He spoke these words, "These scepters represent the rod
of My authority, which you shall carry forth from Zion as commissioned by My word. These scepters represent the power
that I give you to strike the enemy with. These scepters represent the power of My thunder and lightning, which will be
released by prophetic proclamation. And, as you speak by My Spirit, the power of the enemy will be broken."
And, once again, now this third time, the King of kings walked around the circle of His kings of the earth. This time He
removed the red graduation cap from the heads of the graduates and replaced them with a crown. The crowns
were gold with red jewels on the tips of three points of the crowns. The words "joint-heirs" was inscribed upon the front of
the crowns. And, the Lord Jesus spoke to the joint heirs of this present day, " Because you have sought to have the
mind of Christ, you are being given the crown of a joint heir. This crown represents your right to rule with Me over the
thrones of the darkness of this day. I, Myself, will be your crown in these days of My justice, for it shall now be as the
prophet wrote: Isaiah 28:5-6 In that day the LORD of hosts will be for a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty to the
remnant of His people, for a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, and for strength to those who turn back the
battle at the gate."
"The gates are the thrones of the enemy, which has been established over geographical areas (see Revelation 2:13).
Even so, it is written that the gates of hell will not prevail against My church. (Matthew 16:18) You, My people, will now sit
upon the thrones of the House of David, for it is the time of judgment against the thrones of darkness, which were
established by the ancient curses (Ezekiel 36). Psalm 122:5 For thrones are set there for judgment, the thrones of the
house of David."
"Is it not written that I have given you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be
bound in heaven? You have received the three keys (gifts) of this day, and I say use that which you have been given,
and bind the enemy! The kingly anointing that I place upon you will break the yoke of the enemy."
Psalm 149:5 Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds.
Psalm 149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand,
Psalm 149:7 To execute vengeance on the nations, And punishments on the peoples;
Psalm 149:8 To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron;
Psalm 149:9 To execute on them the written judgment; This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!
As this glorious ceremony came to an end the angels of the Captain of the Host could be heard singing a new song,
"Glory to God in the highest, for He is the King of kings, and His kings of the earth will now bring glory into the Holy City.
(Revelation 21:24-26) Alleluia, glory and honor and power to the King of Righteousness, for true and righteous are His
Off in the distance I could see Zion, the Holy City, the Tabernacle of David. I could see the kings of this day ascending to
the thrones of the House of David. I saw them taking their positions in the areas of their specific assignments. I saw them
raising their scepters, and I heard the sound of thunder and saw the flashing of God's lightning bolts across
the heavenly expanse. And, I heard these glorious words, "Fear not, My beloved, for you shall now do great exploits.
The time has come for you to possess the kingdom as My joint heirs, and I say unto you, victory is assured! My kingdom
is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall bow their knee to My authority. You are My kings and are predestined
to rule with Me in glory. Only believe!"
