A few months ago the Lord showed me the most amazing vision. I saw a human heart that was cut open. This sounds a bit revolting, and at first it was a bit weird, but while the heart was being cut open the most beautiful butterfly came out of the flesh of the heart. It was something that I have not seen before, and for me to describe it in human terms is almost impossible.
I personally, was not very fond of butterflies. In a world of designs and marketing it has been overexposed. But, I will never look at a butterfly the same way ever again. In my vision it was a soft rainbow colour that radiated like the sun and around the butterfly was gold dust. I felt the glory of God and heard the words, “Circumcision of the heart!”
In Romans 2:28-29, Paul speaks about circumcision not only as a physical act, but as something that happens to your heart. “A radical change that lays bare your heart”. (The Passion Translation)
For he is not a [real] Jew who is only one outwardly, nor is [true] circumcision something external and physical. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and [true] circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by [the fulfillment of] the letter [of the Law]. His praise is not from men, but from God.
Paul clearly talks about the inwardly and the outwardly. It is not about the act of circumcision (outwardly) but what goes on in your heart (inwardly). God looks at your heart.
When we think of a butterfly in “christian terms”, we think of transformation. There is a fairly large number of verses in the bible about transformation but Titus 3:4-6 really spoke to me. When the extraordinary compassion of God our Savior, and his overpowering love suddenly appeared in person, as the brightness of a dawning day, he came to save us. He saved us, resurrecting us through the washing of rebirth. We are made completely new by the Holy Spirit, whom he splashed over us richly by Jesus, the Messiah, our Life Giver. Titus 3:4 implied in the Greek word epiphainō (epiphany), which means “to shine forth [brightly] in an appearing.” This is exactly how I saw the butterfly, shining forth brightly.
Through the Holy Spirit we are made new, we received a new life to shine forth brightly, like Jesus did on earth.
The first thing that came to mind when I thought of the rainbow was the covenant that God made with his people. That he will never again flood the earth. And yes, that is part of the symbol of the rainbow, but what God wanted to reveal to me was something new and amazing. He spoke to me through the colours. It is so significant and so beautiful. Each colour, on its own means something, but as part of a group, each one followed by the next one, speaks loudly about transformation and progression. From flesh (red) to riches and rulership (purple)
Red – Adam means red – Flesh – Isaiah 1:18
Orange – The colour of fire and brass – Judgement – Genesis 19:24; Numbers 21:9
Yellow – The colour of gold – Trial of faith – Job 23:10; 1 Peter 1:7
Green – The colour of new growth – New life – Genesis 1:30; Ezekiel 17:24
Blue – The colour of the sky – Heavenly appearance – Exodus 26:4; Exodus 28:28,31,37
Indigo and Violet – The purple garments of kings – Riches /Rulership – Judges 8:26
For us to “BE THE LIGHT” in a very dark world, we have to have a transformed heart, a heart of flesh and not of stone (Ezekiel 36). When we have a transformed heart we can shine forth brightly to a world that sees evil. To be kind, to show love, to be humble at heart and do good. We must ask God to circumcise our hearts so that we can share our light. This is the core of BeLight, a prophecy that came in fulfilment in November 2019. We make Christian gifts and clothing and we use it as a ministry tool to bring light to darkness. Our first event was the 28th of November 2019. We prepared for sixty people to come and by the grace of God, two hundred people showed up. We can never take credit for that and we give God all the glory. Since our “launch”, we have been invited to three other places in South Africa. When we walk in the will of God He will sustain what He started and we give Him all the glory.
