To those who feel their lives have become a fiery crucible...
by Codye Reystead

Their are many in the Kingdom who have have been experiencing the effects of an intense and long warfare, coming through various forms of trial and tribulation. And for many, this warfare has been going on a very lengthy period of time.

Many are feeling as if they are stuck in position of simply “fighting for their lives”--fighting for themselves, fighting for their loved ones, fighting for their future, their destinies, and the future destinies of those around them.

Some have been encountering these relentless circumstances as though they were walking through a deep and forgotten valley. Some have been experiencing these trials and tribulations as though they were walking through the flames of Hell itself--the unyielding, ever present tribulations have continued to press in upon you--like fiery furnaces, ever increasing in harshness and momentum. Yes, the intensity of the warfare for many has been that great.

But know this, a massive shift is coming. I Am doing a new thing. I Am bringing forth a people group from the crucibles of great challenge--a people group unlike the world has ever seen. Yes, the hidden ones who have been formed in heat and fire are being brought forward. I am bringing forward those who have been in the crucibles of life; glowing with powerful truth and illuminating testimony. Get ready, for the distant ones are soon to emerge, bearing the flames of tribulation and the brilliance of triumph. I have formed a new people group soon to be revealed.

Watch as story, truth, and testimony will begin to come forth in new, powerful, and creative ways, for they have been birthed in the flames of great tribulation. Though I could have removed many from flames of their circumstances, I chose instead to allow the heat of relentless battle to become their very making. In My wisdom and love I chose to allow the crucibles to continue, knowing I would never forsake My beloved ones as they continued to press on, gaining faith and courage with every step. I chose to allow the challenging battles to continue, knowing the fires of circumstance would become holy shortcuts to great growth and another realm of illumination–-a realm in which they could become illuminated with the glory and presence of their Maker."

Now restitution is at hand. The intense battles many of you have been fighting, the ongoing circumstances and challenges meant to destroy, will now become the very things I will use to bring you forth, in My glory.

Yes, My beloveds, you are being brought forth, unscathed and burning brightly for your King. Be encouraged! Absorb My courage burning within you, for nothing can dim the brilliant reflection of My Light burning in you. Take joy, for you are created to be consumed–-consumed with My indwelling presence, My LIGHT burning within you.

Nothing will be able to dim the fiery flame of My Presence burning so brightly within you, for it is MY LIGHT and My eternal presence burning within you–-it is of another realm, it is of Heaven.

Do you feel the shift beloved ones? For I declare you are now carriers of My Kingdom coming! No longer will you be defined by the fires of your circumstances, for My fire within you will burn stronger than anything that may choose to come up against you! Yes, My beloved ones, My Light within you will burn so brightly it will bring violence to the darkness, illuminating every atmosphere with the light of Heaven. You are carriers of MY LIGHT. My LIGHT in you will shake the darkness simply when you choose to enter the room. Darkness will tremble simply from My Presence burning so brightly within you.

So take courage My burning ones, I am THE LIGHT and you are Mine! The Light of My countenance shines upon you and through you! No darkness that exists can overcome the indwelling presence of My Light within you. So from this day forward, consider My Light within to you to be your weapon against the forces of darkness.

Wherever your feet tread will be changed--changed by the LIGHT of My indwelling presence, burning so vibrantly within you!

"He said, 'Look! I see four men loose and walking about in the fire without being hurt! And the fourth one looks like a son of the gods (or the Son of God)!'” (Daniel 3:25 NLV)

"I will bring that group through the fire and make them pure. I will refine them like silver and purify them like gold. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘These are My people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’” (see Zechariah 13:9 NLT)

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12 ESV)

On the brink of BREAKTHROUGH

Codye ReysteadComment


“My breath is beginning to blow fresh winds upon you. This is your time! Woven into your very DNA are the plans and purposes I spoke over you at your creation. I Am releasing My impenetrable hope to fill your lungs, for it is impenetrable hope that will activate the fruition of your destiny to come in fullness. Look again as I call up divine restitution to invade your atmosphere, and cause that which has been used to hold you back to become lost on the horizon…”

I believe there are many who have been experiencing a ‘barrage’ type of attack from the spirit of hopelessness (specifically in the last week to ten days). The spirits of hopelessness, weariness, and chaos (moving simultaneously) have attempted to keep many from their daily processes–both in the spiritual realm and the physical realm. Issue after issue, situation after situation has been coming up against the sons and daughters of God–attempting to invade our space, our place, and our journeys–even our spheres of influence have come up against the spirits of hopelessness and chaos.

Many have found their personal time to be in the cross-eyes of chaos–And many have battled increasing weariness in the last few weeks as you saw what was stabilized suddenly spring into ‘disorder’ and ‘chaos.’ Hopelessness has worked overtime to escort ‘the spirit of weary’ into personal lives–attempting to introduce chaos and disruption not only into the daily activities of God’s people, but also to the minds and spirits of the sons and daughters of God.

However, as I sat further with this revelation, I began to hear “though it may seem as if you are on the brink of breaking, you are on the brink of solid breakthrough. New ways are being made for those who make-way for the Kingdom of God…” In the Spirit I could see many sons and daughters standing on the “brink” of a cliff. In other words, they were standing on the ‘brink’–the threshold, the edge, the verge…

Many in the Kingdom are ‘on the brink’And though it may seem as if you are on the brink of breaking, you are on the brink of solid breakthrough. Hold steady and hold fast. Breakthrough is coming…new vision and new sight are coming…coming to broaden your perspective yet again, so that you can see the horizon before you and how to navigate toward it. God is releasing panoramic-vision to many so that they might receive the many holy knowings the Holy Spirit is releasing in this hour–holy knowings that will create new paths for the expansion of God’s Kingdom here on Earth.

Creating new, fresh, and creative paths for Kingdom expansion are on the increase, but these new paths must be just that–new paths. New paths must be found, formed, forged, broke open, and broken through. They have, and will continue to require, “a breaking open and a breaking through” because they will break-ground and forge new paths in the spiritual realm for the Kingdom of God to advance. These fresh new paths will claim new territory for the Kingdom of God–in every facet of culture and every spectrum of society.

So though you feel as if you stand ‘at the brink’, hold fast for you are on ‘the verge of breakthrough.’ You are chosen. You are the groundbreakers, the spearheads, visionaries, and innovators of a chosen generation. You are the history-makers and history changers–And this is your time! This is your time to hold fast to your dreams and visions, to not let go of the promises of God, and to dig in even deeper to His faithfulness as the Dream Maker and the Dream Giver…
