A CHOSEN NATION
by Carolyn Anderson-Shanly
On 29th June the Lord spoke to me about a new painting and showed me what it looks like. I held it in my heart for a few weeks, increasingly pregnant with it after receiving confirmation. I’ve since completed (delivered) this painting and am ready to share the word.
Many have seen the prophetic ‘wave’ getting ready to break over our land, Aotearoa. The wave I saw was different. It was not coming from the sea, it was coming directly from the Throne Room, coming from Heaven. It was massive, and suspended over our nation, waiting to be released. The centre curl of the wave formed a koru. Mindful that the koru symbolises ‘new beginnings’ and ‘rebirth’ I was taken to Isaiah 66:8, "Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once?”
Then I heard the Lord say the following, and with urgency, “My people of Aotearoa, get ready, get ready! Loose all that does not matter! My glory wave is now in place, ready to be released!” Holy Spirit also reminded me of Isaiah 40:3-5, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; the crooked places shall be made straight, and the rough places smooth; The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together."
When I went to paint the inside of the wave (koru) I heard the Lord say to paint a rainbow flowing straight from Heaven. I marveled at the fitting symbolism, knowing that rainbow means promise, and knowing that He who sits on the Throne in Heaven is indeed the source of all life, all glory and all promises! I believe that we are indeed a chosen nation, chosen as the first to see the glory of the rising sun, and first to see the glory of the risen Son, such as never seen before. Are we ready?
