The Slalom and the Seven Burning Torches

21.11.2019, Daniel Glimm

During a worship time at the apostolic center Holy Place I heard in my spirit the word ‘slalom’ and saw in the spirit the seven burning torches before the throne of God. I recognized a person running like a slalom from right to left around the seven burning torches before the throne of God.
This movement led to spiral light being created around the seven burning torches. Then I heard the LORD say, ‘Intermingle with the fire of My seven burning torches!' (see Ezekiel 1:13 i.c.w. Revelation 4:5)
Ezekiel 1:13:
13 The appearance of the living creatures was like burning coals of fire or like torches. Fire moved back and forth among the creatures; it was bright, and lightning flashed out of it.
Revelation 4:5:
5 From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God.
The seven Spirits of God, in the form of the seven burning torches, are connected with the nature of the Heavenly Father, since the appearance of the seven Spirits of God, in the form of the seven seeing eyes, is connected with the sonship of God (see Revelation 4:5 i.c.w. Revelation 5:6).
Revelation 4:5:
5 From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God.
Revelation 5:6:
6 Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
The Skier and the Descent
After this appearance, another vision opened up, in which I saw a skier starting the descent of a slalom. I could clearly see the red light suddenly switching to a green light and the sound of the start sounding, so that the skier was driving on the snow through the gates of the slalom.
The Meaning of Slalom?
=> A Slalom (in Austria also called gate running) is the term used in several sports to describe the fast, repeated sequence of curves defined by a series of goals.
The word comes from the Norwegian ‘slalåm’. This is a compound term from the terms ‘sla’ ‘small slope or incline’ and ‘låm’ ‘drag track’, originally ‘narrow path’, so originally ‘ski track with even lowering’. <= (note: The text set in ‘=>’ is a partial excerpt from:
God's desire is that we, as saints, consciously dwell with our spiritual being in the presence of His throne room and show the readiness to be instructed by the Holy Spirit in various characteristics (note: The Spirit of the Lord, Spirit of Wisdom, Spirit of understanding, Spirit of counsel, Spirit of strength, Spirit of knowledge and Spirit of the fear of the Lord (see Isaiah 11:2).
Isaiah 11:2:
2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him – the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord – …
The consequence of this is that we clearly reveal the covenant of God and His government to the people. Here it is also of importance that we move in the revelatory teaching of the Word of God and in the presence of His glory, which goes hand in hand with the fear of the Lord.
Revealing the Lordship of God
The heart of the Heavenly Father longs for us as sons of God in Christ Jesus to make His lordship manifest on earth, and first of all we need to stay where He is in order to bring heaven from that place to earth (see Ephesians 2:6; Colossians 3:1-2 i.c.w. Matthew 6:10).
Ephesians 2:6:
6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, …
Colossians 3:1-2:
1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Matthew 6:10:
… 10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
In addition, the Lord let me know that for us as saints there is no shortage of challenges in our daily lives. God allows these challenges because He trains us in the character of His seven-fold Spirit in order to make the fruits of the Spirit visible through us (see Galatians 5:22-23).
Galatians 5:22-23:
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
In order to meet those challenges, it is required that we approach them with firm confidence in a healthy mindset according to Jeremiah 29:11 in the simplicity of Christ (note: humility and full surrender to the Father’s will) and move in the God-predestined righteousness.
Jeremiah 29:11:
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
This leads us to accelerated progress in Christ and access to new areas related to the dominion and care of the Father (see John 10:9 i.c.w. Revelation 4:2-3; John 6:10-11).
John 10:9:
9 I (note: Jesus Christ) am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.
Revelation 4:2-3:
2 At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. 3 And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald (note: green => pasture) encircled the throne.
John 6:10-11:
10 Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass (note: green) in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there). 11 Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.
In all of this, there is an importance on being prepared for the ‘suddenlies’ of God in order to bring heaven to earth with our God-given competence and gift.
This implies, that at present there is no so-called ‘intermediate phase’ in our temporary time, instead things happen as the switching of the light signal from red to green seen in the vision.
We should be aware that our path is the narrow path that can only be walked with a humble heart and that leads to the center of the eternal government of the King of Kings (see Matthew 7:13-14 i.c.w. Matthew 19:24).
Matthew 7:13-14:
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Matthew 19:24:
24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich (note: a person who thinks to not be in need of anything) to enter the kingdom of God.
Amen and Amen.
In His Wisdom,
