A HEART TRANSPLANT AT GILGAL PART 7, SIGNS AND WONDERS
By Robin Kirby-Gatto
We are going further into a Heart Transplant at Gilgal. The last note discussed how when we receive this deeper circumcision in our heart, when we receive the heart of the Father in greater measure we SEE JESUS!!!! We see Jesus in the midst of ALL OF OUR CIRCUMSTANCES!! This is where the activation of God’s Word in Romans is quickened in our spirit man. Where God works all things to our good, because we LOVE HIM and are called according to HIS PURPOSE! (Romans 8:28) However, it goes further, because it is when we get to this measure of circumcision that in seeing Jesus we walk in the purposes of God in a higher degree, another level of GLORY, so we begin to KNOW HIS WAYS, as did Moses! In Romans, the Word goes on further to say that those whom God foreknew he had predestined to be molded into the image of His Son, Jesus! (Romans 8:29). It is again 2 Corinthians 3:18, that as we look in a mirror we are being transformed into the image of Christ Jesus from Glory to Glory! Furthermore, Romans states those whom God foreknew He called, those He called He then justified and those whom He justified He glorified! (Romans 8:30). It is going from Glory to Glory!
Romans 8:28-30 is a preparation for what is to come for God’s called ones LOL. Immediately after the glorification of God’s justified saints the Word goes on to identify the process in becoming a justified saint in verses 31-39. We are being prepped that God is FOR US!!! Because this circumcision, this heart transplant is going to stir up the antichrist spirit wherever you go! No joke, some people might be laughing and thinking I am kidding but I am telling you from personal experience this increase of anointing by Holy Spirit upon your life will stir up the antichrist spirit in great measure that you will have to be certain of God’s love toward you, as identified in verses 31-39.
31 What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?] 32 He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?] 34 Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us? 35 Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword? 36 Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, 39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:31-39 Amp
Here in the rest of Chapter 8 of Romans there is a lengthy list of the sufferings we will endure on behalf of the One we now SEE so clearly, JESUS! Suffering, affliction, tribulation, calamity, distress, persecution, hunger, destitution, peril or sword. And the Word goes on further stating, for thy sake, the sake of the Gospel going forth, we are put to death all the day long, but even through that WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS AND GAIN A SURPASSING VICTORY THROUGH JESUS! Furthermore, the Word goes on to identify places that not one thing could separate us from the Love of God, neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation!!! Romans 8, the entire chapter, relates the assurance we have of God’s grace, the new covenant, through Jesus Christ, and the walk we have to take in order to reach the Call of God in our lives! It is a pressing in on all sides that it takes us seeing Jesus, as discussed in Note 6 of A Heart Transplant at Gilgal – Seeing Jesus. It is when we see Jesus with greater clarity that we continue to go from glory to glory and have a deeper circumcision of the heart, which increases the anointing we walk in thereby stirring up the antichrist spirit that will hit us time and time again. However, as we see by the example Jesus gave, He resisted the temptations of satan and satan fled! We likewise have to resist the enemy and he will flee!
This takes us further into the heart transplant because it is with the new eyes we have to see Jesus that we begin to see through righteous judgments as Jesus Himself did while on the earth. This eyesight is identified in Isaiah 11:3-4.
3And shall make Him of quick understanding, and His delight shall be in the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord. And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, neither decide by the hearing of His ears; 4But with righteousness and justice shall He judge the poor and decide with fairness for the meek, the poor, and the downtrodden of the earth; and He shall smite the earth and the oppressor with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
The eyes of Jesus make us compassionate warriors to deliver justice on God’s behalf to the broken and downtrodden who are being oppressed by the enemy. Isaiah 11:3-4 is The Acceptable Year of the Lord’s Favor and the Day of Vengeance of our God!
Once we have new eyesight, where we see through God’s eyes, we also discern the move of God’s Holy Spirit and provide the cooperation needed to bring heaven on earth! It is here, in this teaching of A Heart Transplant at Gilgal that we finally get to the purpose of being transformed into the Image of Christ Jesus, as we see Him! The purpose is identified in Romans 8:29-30 that we be molded into the image of Christ, His likeness. Therefore, as we are molded into the image of Christ Jesus we will enter the GREATER WORKS John 14:12! This is demonstrated by Jesus’ first miracle in Cana of Galilee in John 2. In John 2 God is showing us the way in which we stay contrite and humble in order to move out of the way so His Spirit, Holy Spirit, can move. We have come to a place where we are crucified daily all day long, as Paul states in Romans 8. Therefore, the flesh cannot speak to the spirit and Jesus in us, the Hope of All Glory, moves from within in us and spills out onto others. It is the manifestation of God’s Glory! The Heart Transplant is leading up to what “AFTERWARD” means as we will see later.
I taught this revelation of God’s Word for the first time on July 17, 2012 in South Carolina and Holy Spirit said that this teaching was “accurate and true.” The revelation Holy Spirit is unlocking in this hour in God’s Word is for us to comprehend what is the beginning of God’s signs and wonders in our lives, ministries, homes, churches, businesses, etc.
1 THE third day there was a wedding at Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Jesus also was invited with His disciples to the wedding. 3 And when the wine was all gone, the mother of Jesus said to Him, They have no more wine! 4 Jesus said to her, [Dear] woman, what is that to you and to Me? [What do we have in common? Leave it to Me.] My time (hour to act) has not yet come. 5 His mother said to the servants, Whatever He says to you, do it. 6 Now there were six waterpots of stone standing there, as the Jewish custom of purification (ceremonial washing) demanded, holding twenty to thirty gallons apiece. 7 Jesus said to them, Fill the waterpots with water. So they filled them up to the brim. 8 Then He said to them, Draw some out now and take it to the manager of the feast [to the one presiding, the superintendent of the banquet]. So they took him some. 9 And when the manager tasted the water just now turned into wine, not knowing where it came from–though the servants who had drawn the water knew–he called the bridegroom 10 And said to him, Everyone else serves his best wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then he serves that which is not so good; but you have kept back the good wine until now! 11 This, the first of His signs (miracles, wonderworks), Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory [by it He displayed His greatness and His power openly], and His disciples believed in Him [adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Him]. John 2:1-11 Amp
There is great revelation in this wedding at Cana of Galilee. Remember that Galilee is likened to Gilgal, in that it means to “roll away” the reproach. God showed me that we are returning to Genesis again in His Word. God is a full circle God and He brings everything full circle, and God showed me that the Bible is not a straight linear line but rather it is a circle! God is bringing His people back to how it was in the Garden of Eden. How can that be you might ask? When we get to the place we are conduits of what is within our heart, our heart transplant that what is in our heart spills out of us and onto everyone and everything that is around us. Therefore, as we are in that Hebrews 4 rest, the 7th day rest of God that we labored to enter, it is a place whereby it is HEAVEN ON EARTH! Therefore the Kingdom of Heaven comes NEAR! Jesus and John’s first message was REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NEAR! Whatever was in heaven then became manifested on earth! The reason Jesus spoke of the Greater Works is because there would be more vessels of honor created for God’s glory collectively coming together and bringing the knowledge of God’s glory across the earth.
Therefore, the fact that the wedding was held in Galilee symbolizes that Jesus is removing the reproach, rolling away the reproach, of all the sin nature form the Bride! This first miracle is packed with prophetic implications which is manifested in the natural even today as we see Prince William marry Kate Middleton, representing the Bride coming from a place of settling in the middle (the meaning of Middleton) to coming into being a Royal Priesthood a Holy Nation to appropriate her inheritance so that there can be RESTORATION! This is why it is necessary to have the circumcision of our hearts so that we can see with the eyes of Christ Jesus, the eyes of God in order to deliver the purposes of God in the earth, to bring HEAVEN TO EARTH! Therefore, as it is in Heaven it will be on earth!
Moreover, Cana means “reediness” or “reed” as identified in the Greek Concordance referring to the Hebrew word number 7071. This reed however was used in the bible in identifying two things such as “a bruised reed I will not break” or “what did you come out to see a reed swaying in the wind” (Matthew 12:20 and 11:7). Therefore, reed is used as a symbol of man. Also, reed is used in the Word to indicate an instrument used in measuring. We see a reed used as a measuring instrument demonstrated in Revelation 21:16 and Ezekiel 40:3. The prophetic implications of the wedding being in Cana of Galilee indicate that Jesus would “roll away” (Galilee) the reproach from man (Cana-reed) by bringing the measurement, the standard of heaven (Galilee) into earth! Jesus reconciled us to God! We begin to see the standard of heaven is invading earth! The Holy City Jerusalem is beginning to come into clear view in our soul so as we see it in heaven we begin to bring it to earth!
18 But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him]. 19 It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor). 2 Corinthians 5:18-20 AMP.
Jesus reconciled us to the Father and brought us forth as ones who would bring a message of reconciliation, a restoration of God’s favor!!!!! Isaiah 61!!! This wedding being at Cana of Galilee, which Jesus and his disciples attended was on the THIRD DAY which speaks volumes as I am sure you are receiving by Holy Spirit now. It speaks of Resurrection Power, raising the Bride of Christ from a place where she has been crucified with Christ and it is only Christ in us that lives, to also the Fullness of the God Head, Whom we are made in the Image of that fullness, Elohim!!! In Genesis 1:26 When the Word states and God said let us make man in our image; it is the plurality of God, Elohim, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Therefore, the wedding at Cana of Galilee prophesies that God is bringing the Bride of Christ Jesus into the fullness of God! The demonstration of the foretelling of Jesus bringing the Bride into this position is identified in the telling of the occurrences at the wedding feast. Therefore let us look again at the wedding feast.
3 And when the wine was all gone, the mother of Jesus said to Him, They have no more wine! 4 Jesus said to her, [Dear] woman, what is that to you and to Me? [What do we have in common? Leave it to Me.] My time (hour to act) has not yet come. 5 His mother said to the servants, Whatever He says to you, do it. John 2:3-5 AMP.
Here we see the wine is gone during the time of the wedding, on the third day, which is acknowledged by the mother of Jesus. However, Holy Spirit showed me the revelation that is being unlocked in this hour as it relates to this occurrence. All throughout the scripture Mary is referred to the Mother of Jesus. However, in this occurrence when Jesus responds to His mother, He calls her “woman.” This reference as woman is denoting that of flesh, of man. Therefore, when the wine is all gone Jesus’ Mother, Mary, says to Him, “they have no more wine!” Then the response He gives her is “woman what is that to you and Me? What do we have in common? Leave it to me.” This is to indicate that the flesh is anxious because the wine is out and it is only the third day, which for a Jewish wedding is only halfway through nearly of the entire wedding feast; usually a Jewish wedding is 7 days. Therefore, Jesus is denoting that there is nothing in common with the flesh and the spirit and moreover, Jesus is demonstrating that the flesh is not going to tell the God the Son what to do. Likewise, our flesh does not tell our spirit what to do. Then Jesus tells her “My time (hour to act) has not yet come.” I have seen this misinterpreted many times by others stating that Mary was activating Jesus’ works in miracles or in ministry and that is not true. The flesh does not move God, the Spirit of God is what moves and we have to yield to that move. Here Jesus knew something that Mary did not. In Luke 5:39 Jesus states “And no one after drinking old wine immediately desires new wine, for he says, the old is good or better.” Jesus knew that there had to be some time before the NEW WINE came forth or otherwise the two wines would be intermingled and the guests would say the old wine is better. In knowing that, Jesus told His mother to leave it to Him to take care of this matter. He was waiting on the instructions of His Father; Jesus did nothing except for what the Father showed Him. “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” John 5:19 In realizing her error were she was prompting Jesus what to do, Mary then turns to the servants and tells them to do whatever He tells them and leaves it to Jesus. Jesus was waiting for the taste of the old wine to get out of the mouths of the wedding guests. There had to be a transition where the residue of the old wine would finally be removed in order to bring in the new. It is when this transition takes place, leaving things of the flesh and moving in the things of the Spirit, that God has a “NOW!” Let’s see God’s NOW.
6 NOW there were six waterpots of stone standing there, as the Jewish custom of purification (ceremonial washing) demanded, holding twenty to thirty gallons apiece. 7 Jesus said to them, Fill the waterpots with water. So they filled them up to the brim. 8Then He said to them, Draw some out now and take it to the manager of the feast [to the one presiding, the superintendent of the banquet]. So they took him some. 9 And when the manager tasted the water just now turned into wine, not knowing where it came from–though the servants who had drawn the water knew–he called the bridegroom 10 And said to him, Everyone else serves his best wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then he serves that which is not so good; but you have kept back the good wine until now! 11 This, the first of His signs (miracles, wonderworks), Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory [by it He displayed His greatness and His power openly], and His disciples believed in Him [adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Him]. John 2:6-11 AMP.
When the old wine was gone there was a “NOW.” When we get rid of the flesh then we SEE JESUS! No wine left, Holy Spirit what do you want me to do? No more money in the bank account, Holy Spirit help me to see Jesus clearly! No wine, no money, then NOW! We can hear what the Spirit of God and see what the Spirit of God wants us to do! The heart transplant has taken within our souls and we become carriers of the Presence of Christ Jesus!
Now there were six waterpots of stone set aside for purification. Whenever you see six in the Word of God it speaks of two things, man and the Bride of Christ Jesus. Therefore, when the old wine had ceased there was going to be a transformation in man, in the Bride of Christ that would forever change EVERYTHING! Jesus instructed the servants to fill the waterpots with water, indicating an infilling of Holy Spirit in man, in the Bride! Moreover, Jesus instructed them to fill it to the brim, completely high, as much as the vessel could contain. The fact that some held 20 and other 30 gallons indicates the different vessels in the kingdom of God. When Jesus instructed the servants to take it to the manager of the feast something changed, something happened, it was a MIRACLE! When the manger tasted it, no longer was it water but rather the water had turned into wine! The change had occurred!!!! What use to be the ceiling, what use to be ordinary, now had become extraordinary, supernatural, a miracle!!! What was used for purification, what had been set aside, separated and purified……. We are Holy as God is Holy, was used for God’s Glory! Woo hoo!!! What was available for the NOW, that had been set aside and purified, the vessels of habitation for God’s Presence were used for a miracle, the presence of God, to be completely consumed in His glory that it changed the atoms within it, the makeup of the substance within the vessel!!! Woo hoo!!!! Is this preaching!! We are vessels of Honor prepared for His Glory! (Romans 9:23). We are vessels set aside, set apart, made up of body, soul and spirit. The body is but a frame of our soul and spirit which is the substance within the body! The vessel was empty before Jesus instructed for it to be filled!!!! We have to be emptied before we are filled!!!! We have to come to the end of our “SELF” and be given completely to God to allow the soul within us to be filled in overflow by His Spirit in order to bring forth a MIRACLE! There were containers used for the new wine, which were not the usual containers for making wine! LOL God uses the foolish things to confound the wise! God found new wine skins so to speak to pour in the NEW WINE! The superintendent did not know where the wine came from all he knew is that it was beyond measure better than the last wine, so much so that he calls the bridegroom and instructs him that everyone has the best wine first and then uses the other wine but the bridegroom held off and had the best wine last!
This was the FIRST of Jesus miracles, performed in Cana of Galilee at a wedding feast!!! The miracle was one in which would show the glory of Jesus, Son of God! However, this act was one of prophetic implications for the Bride of Christ Jesus! It demonstrates Jesus coming to remove the reproach from man, freeing us from the sin nature – iniquitous roots, that would be completely removed from us! Jesus came to fulfill the law for us so that we could stand in His righteousness not our own! Moreover, the superintendent called the bridegroom and instructed him on the excellence of the new wine. This is likened to God the Father giving honor to God the Son (The Bridegroom) for a move of His Spirit that would soon pour out on the vessels that had been prepared (purified) for His glory! Now we get to JOEL!!!! Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!! The signs and wonders!!! NOW we get to AFTERWARD!!!! Joel indicates the preparation process for the move of God’s Spirit being poured out upon the whole earth.
Here we see that there has been a host of locust that have eaten up everything of God’s people. The locusts are symbolic of stripping. However, it is this place of being stripped that we walk through occasions of shame. God identifies what He this process of working ALL THINGS TO OUR GOOD because we love Him and are called according to His purpose!
25 “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—
the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm
my great army that I sent among you.
26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,
and you will praise the name of the LORD your God,
who has worked wonders for you;
never again will my people be shamed.
27 Then you will know that I am in Israel,
that I am the LORD your God,
and that there is no other;
never again will my people be shamed.
28 “And AFTERWARD,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams,
your young men will see visions.
29 Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days.
30 I will show wonders in the heavens
and on the earth, Joel 2:25-30 Amp
God shows here that it is this stripping that we go through where the locust have come against us and eaten everything. We have lost everything except for God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit! Then God in Joel says that we will no longer be put to shame again! Then we see AFTERWARD in verse 28. AFTER THE STRIPPING, AFTER THE PLACE OF BEING ABANDONED TO THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD, WHEN WE ARE UTTERLY EMPTIED OF OURSELVES AND BECOME SO AVAILABLE TO HIM THAT HE POURS OUT HIS SPIRIT! WE ARE CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST! WE BECOME A JOINT HEIR WHERE HE BROUGHT MANY SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD TO GLORY!!!! WE ARE VESSELS IN WHICH HIS SPIRIT IS POURED OUT TO MOVE UPON THIS EARTH!
The heart transplant in Gilgal is receiving the FULL WORK OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST JESUS AND ALLOWING THE SPIRIT OF GOD TO REMOVE THE SIN NATURE, INQUITOUS ROOTS IN THE SOUL SO THAT THE VESSEL IS EMPTY AND AVAILABLE FOR THE INFILLING OF HOLY SPIRIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A HEART TRANSPLANT AT GILGAL PART 6, SEEING JESUS!
By Robin Kirby-Gatto
The heart transplant continues Glory to God!!!! Woo hoo!!!! By now many of you have come to a place of deeper hunger, deeper thirsty of the Righteousness of Christ Jesus! We have put off our own filthy righteousness and picked up the righteousness of Christ Jesus! Glory to God!
This is one of the big mind blowers (Ephesians 3:20) that Holy Spirit gave me during this teaching as He continues to do over and over again in regard to a heart transplant! This is where we see Jesus at the place where the reproach is removed from us, where the sin nature (Egypt) is removed from us by God, through the Lord Jesus Christ!
Let me also preface this teaching, that when I taught it at The Cave, in Saraland, Alabama on July 23, 2011, that night during the meeting creative miracles manifested with no one praying for anyone. What Holy Spirit showed me was that God created such a presence of Himself through Christ Jesus in us the hope of all glory and it spilled over into our hearts, our souls, whereby our souls began to collectively cry out for the living God that as a result God showed up and creative miracles were happening! Therefore we will eventually lead into the fact that Holy Spirit told me that this teaching engulfs such a healing process for our souls and a revelation of Christ Jesus in us that it brings us to the manifestation where we see signs and wonders manifest! GLORY TO GOD!!!!
The root word of Gilgal in Hebrew means to roll, commit, remove, roll away! It is so awesome because even two days ago I read on Elijah List where the title of the Word of the Lord was “The Rock has Rolled Away.” I was quickened in my spirit that the this word on A HEART TRANSPLANT AT GILGAL was a right now word because as we will see here, the rolling away of the reproach, is demonstrated so incredibly when Jesus arose from the grave and was resurrected walking among the people to show Himself resurrected and then ascended into heaven! Remember the first note as we looked at Gilgal? Joshua and Israel “PASSOVER” the Jordan (and Jordan means to descend in Hebrew) on dry ground as the priest step in the Jordan with the Ark of Covenant. One person from the twelve tribes of Israel pick up a stone in the midst of the dry Jordan where the priest are standing and place it as a memorial at Gilgal, where they ascend to from the Jordan and encamp, lodge. Holy Spirit had me on a quest to find “Gilgal,” a place where the reproach is removed continually time after time again from our lives, our souls, bringing us into freedom! It is as the scripture 2 Corinthians 3:18 states that with unveiled faces as we are looking into a mirror we are being transformed into the very image of Christ Jesus from glory to glory! It is ripping off another veil of the lies of the enemy from our soul because we are born into a fallen world, with iniquity and the flesh rising up. Therefore, Gilgal signifies a place of crucifying the flesh! Where the flesh dies and it is no longer us that lives but Christ Jesus in us! (Galatians 2:20). The Israelites “Passover” the Jordan to Gilgal and it is actually when they are there that we see in note 1 in Joshua chapter 5 that after they are circumcised and healed it was that day in which God said I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you, which is why Gilgal was named; God rolled away the reproach from their hearts, their souls. Moreover, after that rolling away it is at that time Israel keep the Passover feast, and at the time of that celebration the manna ceases for the nation Israel and they no longer eat the food of the wilderness but instead began eating the promises of God, the food in the Promise Land! This indicates that Jesus, the Passover Lamb for our sins, our atonement, was one who descended from heaven into earth to roll away the reproach of man!
Holy Spirit began spotlighting where Jesus was of Nazareth of Galilee. Nazareth was the place Jesus was from but it was in the region of Galilee. That is as saying I am from Birmingham, Alabama. Alabama the state encapsulates Birmingham the city; likewise Galilee the region encapsulates Nazareth. Matthew 21:11 states “And the crowds replied, “This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth of Galilee.” AMP. Therefore the place where Jesus grew up, the region was Galilee. Holy Spirit pressed on me about Galilee and I looked up the meaning in the Strong’s Concordance which the Greek word referred to the Hebrew word number 1551, indicating a circle, leading to the word it referred to as “a valve of a folding door, a ring as round. Then the Hebrew context identified the root word as the same root word as Gilgal, which means “To Roll Away!” I was blown away and then it began to become clearer, which we will see because it was the resurrection of Jesus Christ that “ROLLED AWAY THE STONE!” THE REPROACH OF OUR SINS, OF EGYPT, FROM OUR LIVES ONCE AND FOR ALL SO WE WOULD HAVE ETERNAL SALVATION!!!! Then I began to see a pattern in Jesus’ conversations with the disciples and in His ministry.
I saw where the word of God says Matthew 3:13 “Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John to be baptized by him.” Therefore, Jesus was constantly at Galilee, a place where the stone, the reproach was removed from man, from us! It was indicating something deeper is what Holy Spirit showed me! Jesus is our example, He is the way the truth and the light to the Father! As He was in this earth so are we! We are to pick up our cross and follow Him! When Jesus heard that John was arrested He then withdrew into Galilee. (Matthew 4:12). Jesus even tells His disciples in Matthew 26:32 that after He is raised up from the dead He will go ahead of the disciples to Galilee! Now let us look at the main scripture for this part of the heart transplant! It is Matthew 28, the entire chapter! Remember along with this that the word of God says in 1 Samuel (in note 2) that David was a man after God’s own heart! Many times in the past I saw this as David chasing God’s heart. However, recently Holy Spirit showed me something new. He showed me that what David wanted was a heart transplant! Yes He was after God, but more than that He wanted the very HEART OF GOD inside of him! David wanted a heart transplant! David means “beloved” and we are the beloved of God! As a laid down lover of God we want His very heart! Let us look further at this heart transplant, keeping in mind that Gilgal and Galilee stem from the same root word of a ROLLING AWAY!
1 NOW AFTER the Sabbath, near dawn of the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala and the other Mary went to take a look at the tomb. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled the boulder back and sat upon it. (Matthew 28:1-2 AMP).
Here in the first two verses of Matthew 28 we see that Jesus, who was offered as our Passover Lamb, the One who would make atonement for our sins, was now resurrected from the grave! In Matthew 28:2 The Word of God says “And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and CAME AND ROLLED THE BOULDER BACK and sat upon it! Woo Hoo!!! THE STONE WAS ROLLED AWAY, THE REPROACH OF THE SIN NATURE WAS ROLLED AWAY!!!! THE ETERNAL GATE FOR OUR SALVATION HAD BEEN OPENED! THE ANCIENT GATES WERE OPENED, THE ETERNAL EVERLASTING DOORS THAT THE KING OF GLORY MAY ENTER!
3 His appearance was like lightning, and his garments as white as snow. 4 And those keeping guard were so frightened at the sight of him that they were agitated and they trembled and became like dead men. 5 But the angel said to the women, Do not be alarmed and frightened, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, Who was crucified. 6 He is not here; He has risen, as He said [He would do]. Come, see the place where He lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell His disciples, He has risen from the dead, and behold, He is going before you to Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you. (Matthew 28:3-7 AMP).
The two women are frightened as they see the angel and they trembled. As the angel spoke he offered them assurance of God’s peace and the One Whom they looked for Jesus’ resurrection from the dead! Moreover, the angel exclaims Jesus’ resurrection and tells the women of His rising, identifying Jesus no longer lay in the grave! Then the angel tells the women as Jesus instructed His disciples earlier, “He is going before you to Galilee there you will see him.” When I saw this in the Word, Holy Spirit quickened me and said “Robin it is in Galilee/Gilgal a place where God removes the reproach from your soul that YOU SEE JESUS!” I then looked back at the scripture that stated, “He is going before you to Galilee; there you will SEE HIM!”
It is in the place of circumcision of our soul, our heart, where we come to a place of seeing Jesus! The picture becomes more clear defining 2 Corinthians 3:18, where we look with unveiled faces into a mirror and are being transformed into the image of Christ Jesus! We see our lover and it is when we see our Lover, Jesus, that we become more like Him!
8 So they left the tomb hastily with fear and great joy and ran to tell the disciples. 9 And as they went, behold, Jesus met them and said, Hail (greetings)! And they went up to Him and clasped His feet and worshiped Him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, Do not be alarmed and afraid; go and tell My brethren to go into Galilee, and there they will see Me. (Matthew 28:8-10 AMP).
Then after the angel’s announcement the women leave in great jubilee, great joy, and rejoicing! On the way the women then meet Jesus who greets them and immediately the women fall down and WORSHIP Him! Then Jesus’ message to the women is TELL MY BRETHERN TO GO INTO GALILEE, AND THERE THEY WILL SEE ME. (Matthew 28:10 AMP). Jesus calls His disciples, His friends now HIS BRETHERN! There has been a SHIFT! There has been an ETERNAL SHIFT, bringing us into access with God through Jesus Christ! We are joint heirs with Christ Jesus! He is the FIRST FRUIT of God’s Children! We are sons and daughters of God because of Jesus Christ, GOD THE SON, who brings us to GOD THE FATHER! Jesus is telling the women there is still an occasion, an awakening to be manifested in Galilee, tell my brethren to meet me there! There is still something that needs to be executed by Jesus with the disciples, His brethren!
11 While they were on their way, behold, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had occurred. 12 And when they [the chief priests] had gathered with the elders and had consulted together, they gave a sufficient sum of money to the soldiers, 13 And said, Tell people, His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we were sleeping. 14 And if the governor hears of it, we will appease him and make you safe and free from trouble and care. 15 So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this story has been current among the Jews to the present day. (Matthew 28:11-15 AMP).
In these verses Matthew 28:11-15 the guards were reporting to the chief priests the occurrences of Jesus’ resurrection. The chief priests were so scared they were trying to pay off the soldiers to cover up the resurrection by telling them the disciples rolled away the stone and stole Christ’s body. The word of God mentions that the lie, the story, is still told to the Jews today, which is why the reproach of the lie of satan has to be removed even from what was started at the time of the resurrection, because Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead! He overcame death!
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed and made appointment with them. 17 And when they saw Him, they fell down and worshiped Him; but some doubted. (Matthew 28:16-17 AMP).
Here we see the encounter at Galilee, a place likened to Gilgal, a place where the reproach is removed from our soul. The eleven disciples went to Galilee which they had been instructed to go to by Jesus prior His crucifixion. It is at that moment when they arrive in Galilee that either the disciples “worshiped Him” or doubted Him. That is what the encounter of Gilgal/Galilee does to your soul! It creates DEEPER WORSHIP WHERE DEEP CALLS UNTO DEEP! There is no way to get into a “deep calls unto deep season without a circumcision of the heart, a crucifying of the flesh!” However, because they came to Galilee, a place where their eyes were opened the disciples that fell down and worshiped were fully filled with the Love of God, the adoration of the One they Adored, the exalting of their soul toward their King, their Savior! Others doubted Jesus, thinking He was someone else. However, that is what the heart transplant does, the heart is exposed to greater light of Christ Jesus in us that it peals veils off our spiritual eyes, where we can receive more illumination by Holy Spirit on the revelation of Christ Jesus in us! Where we become divine carriers of Christ in a GREATER MEASURE than ever before! With this deeper circumcision the revelations Holy Spirit has given me are beyond measure compared to the last season, which I must say was mind blowing! I cannot even fathom what revelations Holy Spirit has for me now because last season’s revelation left me in massive awe!!!!
OHHHHH MYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM WRECKED BY THE REVELATIONS HOLY SPIRIT IS POURING IN ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!! Literally I feel as though these explosions go off in my brain awakening synapses is what Holy Spirit is saying and creative an awakening to LOVE!!! IT IS SONG OF SOLOMON!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GLORY TO GOD I AM WRECKED!!!!!!!!! LOOK AT THIS; IT IS SONG OF SOLOMON!!!!!!!!!!!!
“I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that you never [again attempt to] stir up or awaken love until it pleases. Who is this who comes up from the wilderness leaning upon her beloved? [And as they sighted the home of her childhood, the bride said] Under the apple tree I awakened you; there your mother gave you birth, there she was in travail and bore you. Set me like a seal upon your heart, like a seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death, jealousy is as hard and cruel as Sheol (the place of the dead). Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame [the very flame of the Lord]!” Song of Solomon 8:4-6 AMP.
It is an awakening of a DEEPER LOVE OF CHRIST JESUS IN OUR SOULS!!!! It floods all of who we are when we go through this Heart Transplant. Holy Spirit likened it to when someone receives a heart transplant sometimes it needs an electric shock when put in the recipient. Therefore, when we see Jesus after the circumcision, then we have waves of Glory, of love, poured upon our soul that literally awakens deeper places in our soul! We have come up out of the wilderness leaning on Jesus!!!!! We have stated the awakening occurred when we were under the apple tree, indicating we are the apple of His eye! Then He seals our heart, with such a love that OVERCOMES DEATH!!!! IT OVERCOMES HELL!!!!!!!! Woo hoo!!!! Glory to God I am going to run!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JESUS OVERCAME HELL AND THE GRAVE!!!! HE HAS THE KEYS TO HELL AND THE GRAVE/DEATH!!!! WE BY THIS CIRCUMCISION RECEIVING A DEEPER LOVE APPROPRIATE A DEEPER REVELATION OF CHRIST JESUS THAT IN US HE IS GREATER AND WE ARE ABLE TO RAISE THE DEAD!!!! PULL PEOPLE OUT OF CAPTIVITY!!!!! IT IS THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD!!! THE DAY OF HIS VEGENCE!!! Glory to God I am about to explode!!!!!!!!!!!!! Moreover, not only are we infused with His Love, His fiery Love but we are also sealed in the works we do, the seal on the arm!
18 Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19 Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be). Matthew 28:18-20 Amp
Jesus goes on to announce His Rule and Reign to the disciples! “All authority, all power of rule, in heaven and on earth had been given to Jesus! He then instructs them to go make disciples of ALL THE NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit! Teaching them what Jesus commanded them! In Mark 16 the same occasion is detailed in that Jesus stated
15 And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news (the Gospel) to every creature [of the whole human race]. 16He who believes [who adheres to and trusts in and relies on the Gospel and Him Whom it sets forth] and is baptized will be saved [[from the penalty of eternal death]; but he who does not believe [who does not adhere to and trust in and rely on the Gospel and Him Whom it sets forth] will be condemned. 17 And these attesting signs will accompany those who believe: in My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages; 18 They will pick up serpents; and [even] if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will get well. 19 So then the Lord Jesus, after He had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and He sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept working with them and confirming the message by the attesting signs and miracles that closely accompanied [it]. Amen (so be it). Mark 16:15-20 Amp
Wow!!! Here the scriptures state these signs will follow those who believe: in the Name of Jesus they will drive out demons, speak in new languages, pick up serpents, drink anything deadly and be unharmed, lay hands on the sick who will recover! The disciples went out preaching with Jesus accompanying them and attesting signs and miracles CLOSELY ACCOMPANIED! There were signs and miracles in conjunction with, in proximity, in nearness BECAUSE THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN WAS NEAR!!!!
Glory to God there are still more notes! Most likely two more! I speak the Peace of Jesus Christ over you in Jesus Name! Love you!

In order to have this note come forth in great effectiveness it is necessary to read A HEART TRANSPLANT AT GILGAL, PART 4, GOING HIGHER because it precedes this note. Therefore, let us continue from the last note regarding how to go from glory to glory with the Lord. As stated in the prior note there is always a releasing by Holy Spirit to promote us into the next level of glory when we have been faithful to serve God’s house and come forth as a sweet fragrance for Christ Jesus as the sin nature and flesh have been crucified. The next level of glory we see Elisha go to is when Elijah leaves Jericho and goes across the Jordan.
6 Elijah said to him, Tarry here, I pray you, for the Lord has sent me to the Jordan. But he said, As the Lord lives and as your soul lives, I will not leave you. And the two of them went on. 7 Fifty men of the sons of the prophets also went and stood [to watch] afar off; and the two of them stood by the Jordan. 2 Kings 2:6-7 AMP.
Elijah leaves Jericho to go to Jordan, where he will be caught up by The Lord in a whirlwind. Prior to going across the Jordan Elijah tells Elisha to tarry still in Jericho while he goes to Jordan. Elisha continues telling Elijah he would not leave him, as long as Elijah’s soul lives. Jordan in Hebrew means to descend. Therefore, in order to go higher from glory to glory we have to maintain a position of humility with Holy Spirit, being crucified with Christ Jesus, where it is no longer I that live but Christ in me!!!!!! We have been crucified with Christ Jesus and raised up with Him, to be seated with Him in heavenly places! At this point we see the other prophets standing “afar off” and are no longer within an earshot from Elisha to tell him the Lord would be taking away Elijah. This indicates that God will not allow the flesh to come near His Holy Temple and only those who have yielded to the work of Holy Spirit and the fullness of God’s preparations for the Call, the destiny, come forth in crucifying the flesh nature, nature of man. When we get to this phase in the call of God on our life, very few people walk here. The best indicator by God’s Word in demonstrating the separation of those whom He is taking higher is identified in Zechariah 4.
1 AND THE angel who talked with me came again and awakened me, like a man who is wakened out of his sleep. 2 And said to me, What do you see? I said, I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold, with its bowl [for oil] on the top of it and its seven lamps on it, and [there are] seven pipes to each of the seven lamps which are upon the top of it. 3 And there are two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl and the other upon the left side of it [feeding it continuously with oil]. 4 So I asked the angel who talked with me, What are these, my lord? 5 Then the angel who talked with me answered me, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, my lord. 6 Then he said to me, This [addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [of Whom the oil is a symbol], says the Lord of hosts. 7 For who are you, O great mountain [of human obstacles]? Before Zerubbabel [who with Joshua had led the return of the exiles from Babylon and was undertaking the rebuilding of the temple, before him] you shall become a plain [a mere molehill]! And he shall bring forth the finishing gable stone [of the new temple] with loud shoutings of the people, crying, Grace, grace to it! 8 Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundations of this house; his hands shall also finish it. Then you shall know (recognize and understand) that the Lord of hosts has sent me [His messenger] to you. 10 Who [with reason] despises the day of small things? For these seven shall rejoice when they see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel. [These seven] are the eyes of the Lord which run to and fro throughout the whole earth.11Then I said to him [the angel who talked with me], What are these two olive trees on the right side of the lampstand and on the left side of it? 12 And a second time I said to him, What are these two olive branches which are beside the two golden tubes or spouts by which the golden oil is emptied out? 13 And he answered me, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, my lord. 14Then said he, These are the two sons of oil [Joshua the high priest and Zerubbabel the prince of Judah, the two anointed ones] who stand before the Lord of the whole earth [as His anointed instruments]. Zechariah 4:1-14 AMP.
Here the prophet Zechariah had been having a vision from the Lord and engaging in conversation with an angel of the Lord regarding the vision’s message. One thing Zechariah saw was a lampstand with seven bowls on top of it and two olive trees, one on each side of the lampstand, feeding it with an unceasing supply of oil. This indicates the fullness of Holy Spirit, The Spirit of the Lord, Might, Counsel, Knowledge, Wisdom, Understanding, and The Fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11:2) within the vessel flowing unhindered. This is the anointing of God’s fullness through Holy Spirit that has been brought forth in the vessel set aside for His purposes and plans. Zechariah 4:14 states the two olive trees are the “sons of oil” who stand before the Lord of the whole earth. Therefore, the anointing, the oil, of Holy Spirit in us has been brought forth as we have been faithful in the little and not despised the day of our small beginnings, yielding to the working of Christ Jesus in us coming forth from glory to glory that God has separated us from the flesh and brought us to Himself, bringing us up a dimension of glory that others have not reached yet. (It is our desire to continue to go from glory to glory all the days of our lives! Therefore once we have met this process once we will continually go back to Gilgal for a deeper heart circumcision and maintain a position of being crucified with Christ Jesus! Therefore we see Elijah and Elisha separate from the rest of the prophets and go across to the other side of the Jordan.
8 And Elijah took his mantle and rolled it up and struck the waters, and they divided this way and that, so that the two of them went over on dry ground. 9 And when they had gone over, Elijah said to Elisha, Ask what I shall do for you before I am taken from you. And Elisha said, I pray you, let a double portion of your spirit be upon me. 2 Kings 2: 8-9 AMP.
In 2 Kings 2 Elijah then takes up the mantle, rolls it up and strikes at the water! This is symbolic of the God having removed (rolled away) the reproach from our souls now gives us overcoming power that we start walking in signs and wonders by God’s Holy Spirit bringing us forth into the destiny of God on our lives! Elijah strikes the waters of the Jordan and the two of them cross over on dry ground! This is the same thing the priests did as they carried the Ark of the Covenant, they stepped into the Jordan and Israel crossed over on dry ground! Now the Ark of Covenant, God has infused into our being, as in Elijah, that we now carry God’s presence! We have increased in the presence of Christ Jesus we carry within ourselves! Next, Elijah asks Elisha what he would have Elijah do to him. Elisha requests a double portion of “your spirit” be upon me! What this request is in actuality is Elisha saying that I want more of God than you have! I want your God Elijah but I want Him in a double portion! People think Elisha is after the mantle! LOL!!! But watch, watch what is asked of Elisha and what He cries out.
10 He said, You have asked a hard thing. However, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you–but if not, it shall not be so. 11 As they still went on and talked, behold, a chariot of fire and horses of fire parted the two of them, and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. 12 And Elisha saw it and he cried, My father, my father! The chariot of Israel and its horsemen! And he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own clothes and tore them in two pieces. 13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. 14 And he took the mantle that fell from Elijah and struck the waters and said, Where is the Lord, the God of Elijah? And when he had struck the waters, they parted this way and that, and Elisha went over. 2 Kings 2: 10-14 AMP.
Then Elijah responds you have asked a HARD THING! It is a HARD THING when you get closer to God and as you see God move in great signs and wonders that we have to KEEP THE MAIN THING THE MAIN THING! This is when the soul is exposed to the light and once we get to this level of glory if we seek the signs and wonders, fame, blessings or THE ONE THAT GIVES IT ALL TO US! That is the last test Elisha had to pass! He had to be tested to see if there was any part of himself that might want the power, fame, or blessings more than he wanted God. That is why the test was that if Elisha would keep His eyes on Elijah, as Elijah said “IF YOU SEE ME, WHEN I AM TAKEN UP” that Elisha would have what he asked for from the prophet. We see the biggest show on earth as the heavens open and a chariot of fire and horses of fire parted the two men. There were more visual stimuli and auditory sounds than we could ever imagine! It was the supernatural manifesting in the natural! Elisha in the midst of it all, when Elijah went up in the whirlwind to heaven kept his eyes on Elijah and not the visual and auditory supernatural events of the chariot and horses of fire! He kept his eyes fixed on Elijah! Immediately Elisha cries out “My father, my father! The Chariot of Israel and its horseman!” He kept his eyes fixed on Elijah although the supernatural was continually manifesting before him in this catching away of Elijah. Immediately after Elijah is taken away by God Elisha takes his own clothes and tears them in pieces. This ripping off of the old mantle that Elisha does demonstrates that the love of God within us compels us to go further and pick up the mantle, receive the mantle, He has for us. The mantle of the prophet Elijah is left behind for the prophet Elisha to pick up and go forth. Elisha picks of the mantle and struck the Waters of the Jordan, saying WHERE IS THE LORD, THE GOD OF ELIJAH?! That is what Elisha was after!!!! Elisha was after the God of Elijah, the God that was made real to him by one who had prepared his spirit in receiving more of God! The waters parted as it had before for Elijah and Elisha crosses over with the new mantle and new authority!
Then we see the process as Elisha crosses back over and goes to the different areas in which he and Elijah had come from. Remember the further we get away from the Jordan the more immature the people are of that area. Therefore, those who are in Jericho, the prophets, are more mature than those found in Bethel because we go from glory to glory and those in Bethel have not passed the test of being faithful with a little yet and have not moved forward to Jericho.
15 When the sons of the prophets who were [watching] at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha. And they came to meet him and bowed themselves to the ground before him. 16 And they said to him, Behold now, there are among your servants fifty strong men; let them go, we pray you, and seek your master. It may be that the Spirit of the Lord has taken him up and cast him on some mountain or into some valley. And he said, You shall not send. 17 But when they urged him till he was embarrassed, he said, Send. So they sent fifty men, who sought for three days but did not find him. 18 When they returned to Elisha, who had waited at Jericho, he said to them, Did I not tell you, Do not go? 2 Kings 2:15-18 AMP.
The prophets in Jericho could not believe first that Elijah had been taken up but they acknowledged the “spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha.” There is an indication that they acknowledged Elisha had gone up in a higher anointing, God has promoted Elisha to another level of glory! Then as they begin to speak to Elisha they still maintain a position of servanthood although they have been promoted because the greatest in the kingdom is servant of all. They indicate to Elisha that he has 50 servants to his access should he need them and request permission to go look for Elijah. However, these prophets have not come to a position of humility of being crucified with Christ Jesus and tried to step outside of God’s authority to prove they were right. This happens on occasion when someone has gone higher in the Lord, higher in the anointing, from glory to glory. Those who are used to seeing someone like Elisha serve and go through the process God requires, when promotion comes, then many are thrown off because they are used to you being in the lower position you went through to get to where you are now. They do not want to acknowledge God’s authority on you so they challenge the word of the Lord through you and are determined to prove they are right; they have not become acclimated with the promotion of the Lord in your life. The prophets insist they are right and so much so to the point Elisha gives them permission to go look for Elijah, and Elisha rests at Jericho until they return and state they did not find him. It is so funny because it is as though Elisha does an “I told you so” to the prophets that challenged God’s authority in him. When they get back to Jericho to report to Elisha they could not find Elijah he says to them “Did I not tell you, do not go.” God’s word in Elisha is being confirmed and honored by God and now they recognize it for what it truly is, Elisha was promoted by God! In Bethel after God in Elisha is honored, the anointing that rests on Elisha, then the prophets identified areas in which there was a need for God to show up in Jericho.
19 And the men of the city said to Elisha, Behold, inhabiting of this city is pleasant, as my lord sees, but the water is bad and the locality causes miscarriage and barrenness [in all animals]. 20 He said, Bring me a new bowl and put salt [the symbol of God’s purifying power] in it. And they brought it to him. 21 Then Elisha went to the spring of the waters and cast the salt in it and said, Thus says the Lord: I [not the salt] have healed these waters; there shall not be any more death, miscarriage or barrenness [and bereavement] because of it. 22 So the waters were healed to this day, as Elisha had said. 2 Kings 2:19-22 Amp
One of the first manifestations of going to this level of glory is flowing in healing of the body, soul and spirit. The men of Jericho told Elisha that there was barrenness due to the defiled waters that flowed throughout the city. Elisha calls forth for salt where God heals the waters and stops the barrenness. Therefore, as we are salt of the earth we go forth in bringing the manifestation of Isaiah 61, to heal the broken hearted, bind them up with God’s Holy Spirit manifesting life and life abundantly, removing the curse of death in every area we come into contact.
Let us look at another area too where God brings judgment on those who touch His anointed and bring harm to His prophets.
23 He went up from Jericho to Bethel. On the way, young [maturing and accountable] boys came out of the city and mocked him and said to him, Go up [in a whirlwind], you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead! 24 And he turned around and looked at them and called a curse down on them in the name of the Lord. And two she-bears came out of the woods and ripped up forty-two of the boys. 25 Elisha went from there to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria.2 Kings 2:23-25 Amp
The young boys in the city of Bethel, the House of God, The Church, not the world mind you, were mocking Elisha and taunting him. However, what they truly were doing was taunting the God of Elisha. Therefore, after continued mocking and profaning Elisha, Elisha turns around, indicating that he had to pass by them before he looked at them. Therefore, he had been enduring mocking for a period not just an instant before he spoke. When Elisha does speak he calls a curse down on them “in the name of the Lord.” At that moment two she-bears rip up 42 of the boys. Here the word has 4 indicating authority and 2 a witness. Therefore, there was a witness to the authority of God that Elisha walked in to those present. The she-bears is very obvious in that if you mess with a bear’s cub the mama bear does not put up with it. That is indicative of God who has scorn against satan who uses vessels and instruments as a device to come against God’s anointed.
1 Chronicles 16:22 and Psalm 105:15
“Touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm.”
This is why many are under judgment because they are coming against God’s anointed and doing them harm.
Do you want to go up another level of Glory? Are you hungry for More of God? GO FROM GLORY TO GLORY!!!!!

A Heart Transplant at Gilgal Part 4! Going Higher
By Robin Kirby-Gatto 8/9/11
Glory to God!!!! We are moving forward with a HEART TRANSPLANT!!! God’s Heart!!!!!
God I ask that you infuse everyone reading this with YOUR HEART and expose to the light the lie of the enemy that would hold them back in Jesus Name! AMEN! Ok let us begin with the next part of going higher in the Lord Jesus Christ, where we are looking with an unveiled face in a mirror being transformed into the very image of Christ Jesus from Glory to Glory! 2 Corinthians 3:18.
This part of the Heart Transplant is a removing of the veils which hold us back from seeing Christ Jesus as He truly is within us! The Word of God says that the Kingdom of God is within! God Himself is within us through Christ Jesus! We now walk in the righteousness of Christ Jesus and as we have been crucified with Christ Jesus we are also raised up with Him! Therefore, the first two notes of the heart transplant dealt with God removing the reproach of the sin nature, iniquity from us! Now we are moving to another level of Glory whereby as God has removed sin nature from us we have veils ripped off of us so we can see Christ Jesus clearer than ever before and we walk in greater wisdom and revelation with the eyes of our understanding opened to know the hope to which we are called. (Ephesians 1:17).
There is an ever increasing of God’s splendor, His glory, being revealed in us by Holy Spirit through our position of being in the righteousness of Christ Jesus and being seated with Him in heavenly places. I know from experience as I have grown in spiritual maturity it is as though when I enter a new level of glory I have this feeling of things seeming “weird” not bad but simply “weird.” Holy Spirit explained to me that when I feel that I am to know that God has brought me up another level of Glory in Christ Jesus and I am to become acclimated to that level by His Holy Spirit. Therefore, when we go from glory to glory one of the occurrences along with the increase in seeing in hearing in the spirit is that many times our natural senses have increased in receptivity, too. Two weeks ago Holy Spirit brought me up to another level of Glory in Christ Jesus and literally my auditory and visual senses were so heightened that all the stimuli coming from the environment was magnified ten times more than normal. I knew it was a day in which I could not be in a location in which there would be a stimulus overload. LOL!
My oldest son, Christopher, was at Belk using his birthday gift cards and we had dropped him off there, returning later to pick him up. Upon our return I did venture to get out and go into the store on the prompting of Holy Spirit. When I did all of a sudden I began to hear people’s souls cry out. It was so crazy! I began to then later prophesy immediately because their soul cry was so loud and God’s mercy in me heard the cry to respond to them. Therefore, I began to prophesy to the employees standing around the register as Holy Spirit led me. Then as I prophesied the people began to obtain a greater hope than before. The employees erupted in laughter and joys, jumping up and down because the very things Holy Spirit had me prophesy were what they had discussed hours earlier! The incredible occurrence with me spiritually through this occurrence is that I could hear the souls of all of those people before God ministered to them. It was a discernment I had not entered into until that moment. Moreover, due to the lightening of God hitting my soul recently anytime there was doubt and unbelief operating in the room it felt like a wet blanket/cloak had been thrown on me, so I could understand why Jesus would have those with doubt and unbelief leave the room when He ministered; it was interference with God’s moving.
Since, God had taken me up this increased splendor of His glory I was feeling “weird” to say the least. My spiritual and natural senses were on overload and activated measures beyond what I had in the past. Never mind the fact that God has brought me light years spiritually over the past 9 years from glory to glory, this was as though God brought me in a few months what would have taken 9 years. Therefore, the acclimation to this level of glory would take some adjusting by Holy Spirit getting me balanced in that level of glory. By the time I went to Where the Rivers Meet Conference in South Carolina the first week of August (last week) I had gotten my footing in the new level of glory and I flowed with Holy Spirit in a greater grace as a result. Therefore, at Gilgal, part of the heart transplant, us receiving God’s heart is so that we will after the circumcision and healing receive more of God in us through Christ Jesus! We have had more sin nature removed from us therefore there is more room for Holy Spirit to occupy and flow which causes us to go up another level of Glory with God. This is poignantly displayed with Elijah and Elisha. Before we go up a level of glory there is a requirement of us to be obedient and faithful with the small before God makes us ruler over much. 2 Kings 2 gives the depiction of this phase or promotion I should say when we get a heart transplant; when we receive God’s heart.
1WHEN THE Lord was about to take Elijah up to heaven by a whirlwind, Elijah and Elisha were going from Gilgal. 2 Kings 2:1 AMP.
Here, Elijah and Elisha were going from “Gilgal.” Remember Gilgal means to roll away the reproach. Therefore, it says in the word “When the Lord was about to take Elijah up to heaven by a whirlwind” indicating that God was promoting Elijah, taking him literally up to glory, it mentions “Elijah and Elisha were going from Gilgal.” This indicates Elijah and Elisha had been at Gilgal. In other words, before we get promoted we have already been at Gilgal, a place of circumcision of the heart, where God has exposed things in us in order that they might be removed by us laying it down at His feet, for Him to remove the reproach away from our hearts. Therefore, it was right after Gilgal that Elijah was sent forth into going to glory.
2 And Elijah said to Elisha, Tarry here, I pray you, for the Lord has sent me to Bethel. But Elisha replied, As the Lord lives and as your soul lives, I will not leave you. So they went down to Bethel. 3 The prophets’ sons who were at Bethel came to Elisha and said, Do you know that the Lord will take your master away from you today? He said, Yes, I know it; hold your peace. 2 Kings 2: 2-3 AMP.
Here, Elijah is sent to Bethel first and Elisha follows him. When Elijah began his journey from Gilgal to Bethel Elijah told him to tarry because the Lord had sent him to Bethel. Many people would look at this and believe that Elisha is to obey with what Elijah is telling him by tarrying at Gilgal. However, Elisha new that it was a test and in order to go into a higher anointing, another level of glory he would have to PRESS THROUGH with the trials and tribulations that would occur in order to obtain the GREATER!!! THE GREATER ANOINTING!!! Holy Spirit showed me in 2003 that in order to get more of the anointing flowing in us that we would have to press through and be obedient beyond acceptable. What does that mean? Well, it would have been acceptable in the natural for Elisha to stay in Gilgal as he was told why Elijah went forth. However, although it would have been acceptable Elisha would have missed receiving the double portion mantle of Elijah. Therefore, what is normally acceptable for others is not for us if we want more of God, Jesus, Holy Spirit and to increase in the anointing. Therefore, to Elisha it was not acceptable to tarry in Gilgal but surely as Elijah’s soul lived Elisha would follow him. Elisha would not be deterred from following Elijah all the way. This occurrence is analogous to us following the Lord all the way in the call of God on our life to receive the fullness of the anointing He has planned for us. Therefore, the first place Elijah goes to is “Bethel” meaning House. When we get ready for promotion God sees how we are faithful in His House, The Church, in serving and being obedient to The Church before promotion comes. For many years, 7 years, I served God’s Church in serving in ministry other ministries and not my own. I didn’t have a ministry then all I knew is that I wanted more of Jesus and that is all I wanted. I have a bachelor and masters in social work, as well as a law degree (juris doctorate) and had no intentions of ever going into the ministry. However, God told me to serve other ministries and be faithful to attend the meetings he wanting me attending. Therefore, I did what God told me. This is one of the biggest steps many people who end up going on in the call of God on their life have to pass, serving where God tells us to serve. The prophets even come up to tell Elisha that Elijah would be taken up with the Lord. See there is not only Elisha’s promotion but there is Elijah’s promotion, too. Elijah’s promotion was grooming Elisha, one who would pick up the destiny God had for them and walk in the fullness of it! The Elijah mantle is to prepare a people ready for the Lord in Spirit and Elijah’s relationship with Elisha is demonstrative of that. Therefore, Elijah passed through Bethel symbolizing The Church, God’s House, where Elisha was faithful to serve. Moreover, the fact that the prophets in the area were telling Elisha “The Lord will take your master away today” symbolizes where the mocking spirit at times attacks us as we move forward in our destiny; satan and flesh cannot see what we see in the spirit! Therefore, do not be surprised if the mocking spirit starts rising up against you attacking you as you are fulfilling the call of God on your life! Next we see Elijah passing through Jericho.
4 Elijah said to him, Elisha, tarry here, I pray you, for the Lord has sent me to Jericho. But he said, As the Lord lives and as your soul lives, I will not leave you. So they came to Jericho. 5 The sons of the prophets who were at Jericho came to Elisha and said, Do you know that the Lord will take your master away from you today? And he answered, Yes, I know it; hold your peace. 2 Kings 2:4-5 AMP.
Here Elijah instructs Elisha to tarry in Bethel as Elijah prepares to go to Jericho. There is still a progression of the soul as we go from glory to glory. Therefore, the first level of going from glory to glory is when we allow God to circumcise our hearts at Gilgal, a place where we allow God to remove the reproach of the sin nature, Egypt, from our heart. Then we go to a place of being faithful with the little, not despising the day of small beginnings by serving in the House of God, His Church, in ministry. As we are faithful with a little God begins to promote us to the next level as we see Elijah going forth to Jericho. Elisha again instructs Elijah that he will not tarry in Bethel but rather as long as Elijah’s soul lived he would follow him, not leave him; Elisha has been instructed by the Lord at some point of this assignment which is why he will not abate (stop). Jericho means two things in Hebrew, it means fragrance and month. Therefore, this dimension of commitment from Elisha indicates that he goes through a state of maturity whereby he can become a sweet fragrance of the Lord to others. Elisha is after the God of Elijah not Elijah and that is what is so important here! Many people who come under ministers or anointed servants of the Lord are after that person’s mantle or anointing and not after God. This is a place whereby Holy Spirit allows a separation of those who are after the anointing or after God. This testing indicates that only those who pass through this test and continue to get promoted to the next level of glory are the ones God will promote. Therefore, the “month” of Jericho indicates 30 days. 30 is the time at which it was considered that Jewish men would begin their ministry. In addition the “fragrance” indications of Jericho identify those who will step forward in the call of God on their life becoming the fragrance of Christ Jesus, a sweet fragrance; not the fragrance of man which is a stench. This separation then allows you to go forward from the season of being faithful with a little and not despising the day of small beginnings to going deeper in the Lord Jesus Christ so that you smell like your lover, your Savior! As you smell like Jesus, then He begins to stretch out your tent pegs a little more for you to go forth in the ministry and the call of God on your life. The prophets again bring up to Elisha that his master will be taken away that day. Elisha’s continued response is hold your peace, in other words as of today, be quiet. Holy Spirit showed me something major in ministry as I continued to move forward in the call of God on my life.
Let me preface this with OFFENSE WILL COME!!!! Holy Spirit allows offense to come because offense is to shovel out of us what is not of God. For those who have not read my book, The Glory to Glory Sisterhood, there is an entire section on Offense that gives you the revelation of what offense is to do in our soul. Either the sin nature will be uprooted or we will from the ministry we serve. There were many times that I could have been offended with others and in the natural had a right to be offended but it was a test for me before God would promote me, whether or not I would allow love to infuse me and love those who persecuted me and allow God to deal with their hearts. Holy Spirit literally zipped my lip all throughout the attack of the enemy against me during the time offense came toward me because I was being falsely accused of being a jezebel and other things on top of that, as well as treated as though I had some contagious disease that others might get. I did, the Dis Ease I had was JESUS and made others at a lot of DIS – Ease because they were not use to seeing Him in the manner in which I displayed Him. I am an abandoned lover that does what Jesus tells me to do no matter what the cost. Therefore, I was paying a huge price at the time. On top of that Holy Spirit was allowing my FLESH TO DIE!!!!! This occurred by two methods, the flesh dying, the first of which Holy Spirit would not let me speak! LOL!!! Holy Spirit was training me on the difference between the flesh speaking and the spirit speaking. I was given massive revelations during this time and while others would talk on the revelations they had on the subject matter Holy Spirit gave me massive downloads on, Holy Spirit would not let me open my mouth even once regarding those revelations; I was being tested if I wanted the glory and allow flesh to rise up or would only allow God to get the glory and speak when He told me to speak. Believe me just because we have a revelation doesn’t mean we are to tell everyone about it whenever we feel like it. LOL!!!! I KNOW BECAUSE HOLY SPIRIT TRAINED ME IN THIS FOR TWO YEARS STRAIGHT!!! Thank you Jesus that is over! J I see this test given many times to people and they cannot restrain themselves for letting everyone know what they know. I simply allow Holy Spirit to have me maintain patience in the fruit of Holy Spirit and pray for those in this test until they actually pass. A news flash is that promotion comes when we PASS this test! Therefore, many are not walking in the call of God because they still have not passed this test where they walk in the spirit and not the flesh, not letting the flesh nature be predominant in speaking.
Next, the other method in which our flesh dies is that we go through different offenses whereby Holy Spirit allows the flesh and sin nature in us to die so that we become infused with the Love of Christ Jesus in us so our roots go deeper in Him! It is in this pressing in, this allowing the offense to expose the flesh and the sin nature in our hearts/souls in order to allow God to remove it from us so that it is all about God and nothing is about us!!!! This promotion from Bethel to Jericho indicates Elisha’s going forth from glory to glory by passing his test as a servant and moving forth into the test of allowing the love of God (Christ Jesus) to be molded in him in a greater measure, making him a sweet fragrance. As Elisha walks through and passes this test we see the flesh, carnal nature of man interfering again when the prophets instruct Elisha his master would be taken away by the Lord today. Again Elisha tells them to be quiet. Many times when you are moving forward in the call of God others might allow their flesh, carnal nature, to operate in them and attack you. You have to look forward and not give into the flesh nature of others that simply is a hindrance to distract you from going in the Way of the Lord. As we looked in the prior note where Peter reproves Jesus from going to the cross, it indicates the flesh is trying to tell the spirit what to do and Jesus rebukes Peter, saying that he is given to the nature of man. Do not let the nature of man, the flesh, of others be a deterrent, simply do not listen to the message of the flesh.

A Heart Transplant at Gilgal Part 3
by Robin Kirby-Gatto 8-1-2011
As I have been ministering this entire message over the past week, twice already, once in Saraland, Alabama and the other in Alabaster, Alabama my heart has been getting infused more with the POWER Of GOD by HIS HOLY SPIRIT that I FEEL THE LIGHTENING OF GOD HITTING MY SOUL!!!! It is awakening me deeper to the call of God on my life and the attacks of the enemy to my soul that is individualized to me as it is for all of us; we have different circumstances, life traumas, etc.
Holy Spirit so exposed one this morning as the Lightening of God hit my soul and I was riveted beyond measure to the attack of the enemy and God unveiled the revelation of it in this next teaching of the heart transplant so that God’s leaders would rise up to the CALL of GOD on their life and not back down!!! I tell you the lie of the enemy which had manipulated me many times over that was exposed to me today really took me by surprise; I didn’t see it at first because initially it look like God not like the lie of the enemy. But remember the enemy comes as an angel of light to make you think that it is God and it is not God! I thought of Peter today when Jesus had asked His disciples who they thought He was in reality and Peter had the revelation YOU ARE JESUS THE SON OF GOD, THE CHRIST!!!!! Immediately Jesus states yes this is not revealed to you by anything other than The Holy Spirit, God Himself, and Peter was correct! On this very revelation the Church of God would be built, that Jesus Christ, is the Son of God and Peter would be called “A Rock!” Shortly thereafter, Jesus speaks of HIS CALL!!!! Remember this continually throughout the note because the heart transplant of God not only gives us compassion but it gives us a boldness an authority of Christ Jesus in us that we are more grounded in Jesus, to WALK OUT THE CALL OF GOD IN OUR LIVES!! When Jesus spoke of His Call to go to Jerusalem and suffer things at the hands of the elders and high priests and scribes, as well as be killed then rising from the dead. Peter took Jesus aside to speak to Him privately and said “Lord, This must never happen to You!” LOL
Peter counseling Jesus!!!! That is too funny!!! Well, I cannot laugh too much because I know I have erred here myself and done this on occasion where God has rebuked me lovingly by His Holy Spirit. Jesus turns AWAY from Peter, whom He just declared to him, the Keys of the Kingdom were given to him to bind and loose things on earth as it is in heaven! Wow what a total 180!!!!!! However, Peter having walked in the anointing of Holy Spirit apparently thought his flesh was in submission and when he received a “thought” in his head that Jesus shouldn’t do something, instead of screening it by inquiring of the Lord or saying nothing proceeds to think he is still in the spirit when he is sadly mistaken and is rebuked by the Lord, Himself, stating that instead Peter was doing the work of satan (whose name I do not capitalize intentionally). Peter is rebuked for trying to “hinder” the will of God in the Call of Jesus Christ to fully walk as Savior! In the Amplified Matthew 16:23 states “But Jesus turned away from Peter and said to him, Get behind me satan! You are in My way [an offense and a hindrance and a snare to Me]; for you are minding what partakes not of the nature and quality of God, but of MEN!!!!!! See that word that Peter was partaking not of “satan” but of the nature of MEN! That is a revelation but let me unveil this to you by God’s grace and His Spirit!! This is going to pump you up; I know it did me!!!!
A great example I will give you is that when I minister, I minister for HOURS!!!! I do not minister just a message and then pray and leave but God’s grace upon my life and the way He brought me up in ministry since I first began in 2003 was to minister for hours at a time! In the midst of 2003 – 2008 God gave me wisdom, knowledge and understanding to discern when I would need to rest, THANK YOU JESUS! However, this is what satan does today in my ministry, first one of the things Rich, my husband, and I have discerned, especially with me being a woman is that many men who are not secure in themselves will try and prophesy me on the pew and Rich up preaching! LOL yes this is true! Sometimes I even mention to Rich you don’t see that with T D Jakes and his wife, or some other great man of God. You only see it with women where the enemy attacks the woman. I don’t see it at all the other way around when men are the one anointed to prophesy and preach and then their wife is anointed to support them. Now I am not saying Rich does not speak and he will gladly tell you He does speak especially at 22 IS 22 (Isaiah 22:22 Company) our prophetic intercession ministry! However, on occasion satan will try to speak to us through whomever he can use to tell Rich and I that Rich is the one that is to be prophesying and his ability to prophesy is equal to yours is what someone stated recently! Moreover, they prophesy that Rich is to be preaching in front of everyone! LOL yes it is true they prophesy this to us!!! Rich gladly states that he knows his anointing and he knows his call and THAT IS NOT IT!!!! Rich states He knows my gift of prophecy because I am a prophet and he knows that we have different gifts and he does prophesy but distinguishes that he has a greater anointing to pastor and me to prophesy; that is our calls! He is a pastor completely as his father has been for over a half of a century, 50 years! Me on the other hand; I am a prophet and have compassion but I am not a pastor and know it well. It makes me appreciate Joyce Myers so much more because first of all being a woman in ministry at times is very difficult with all the religious and antichrist spirits that try and operate. Moreover, there are times when, in the past, during times of being misunderstood and undergoing persecution people literally thought I was a Jezebel because I was a strong woman and they saw Rich with me who in God’s grace is anointed with such wisdom that I pull from continually to propel me further in ministry, being meek. However, because I am so expressive and loud, yes I cannot help it; it is my personality and I make no apologies for it because that is how God made me. LOL. At any rate, with being misunderstood I would be treated as a Jezebel and called a Jezebel to my face in front of other people and God had me hold my peace and take the insult and not say a word while He placed me in “the bubble” of His rest, Hebrews 4! All that was in the bubble was love and Hebrews 4 and God allowed me to go through the misunderstandings and persecution and I would go to Rich saying I don’t want to do ministry anymore I want to stop during 2005-2007 and Rich would tell me “Robin you are not going to stop it is your destiny!” I didn’t stop because God used my husband to push me! LOLOLOLOL. People thought that I was literally controlling my husband and dragging him around with me to places and they didn’t know until later when God opened their eyes that I didn’t want to do ministry but God in Rich pushed me into the Call!!!! (FYI women do not look for another woman’s husband to push you into your call J it is in my book THE GLORY TO GLORY SISTERHOOD under coveting other women’s husbands). I have had many times on occasion someone desire a “man like Rich” or talk about him in an inappropriate manner or try and go to him aside from me to get counsel for their call, so I do recommend Holy Spirit’s book He had me write. J
Also, in regard to authority of The Call of God there have been even on many occasions that while I minister for hours people are amazed and cannot understand God’s grace on me to do that unless they are in the stream with me while I am ministering and under the anointing to know that it is not me but only God that keeps me. For example, when I ministered at The Cave in Saraland, Alabama the weekend I gave this message, the message itself was an hour and a half, 90 minutes! LOL. Then I prophesied and ministered to all there which was another 8 hours of straight ministering. Believe me I did not feel it until I stepped out of the anointing, until the ministry was over because I Love it! I live for The Call that God has appointed me and I DO NOT BACK DOWN!!!!! When I minister for 10 hours straight I feel no hunger, I do not go to the bathroom, I do not know the time and I instruct those around me that when I am ministering there is no time and not to tell me and they bless me by not telling me the time until I am through ministering. When I am through then my body steps out of the anointing and needs rest and I get it!
Moreover, during the move and our normal day living where we still only have one car, but I do not think about it, because I am not slave to the world system, to Egypt, and will not get a car until one of two things, God tells me or God gives me one! Therefore, I HAVE TO as a part of my life drive my husband to and from work and my children where they need to go, presently , Christopher to his job, and do ministry, too. I LOVE IT!! I DON’T THINK ABOUT IT BECAUSE OF GOD’S GRACE! However, on top of that I have had people come up to me and prophesy in correction to me that “I am not disciplined” in spending time with the Lord, never mind, that I get up at 4:15 most every morning to spend time with him during the normal week when I do not have the time otherwise and I do my daily life requirements as a mother, wife and woman of God! I look at the people who tell me this and think, are they crazy! Ok they have no clue how disciplined I am by The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord which I have been immersed since 2002. LOL. However, just like Peter people talk out of their flesh and try to take me aside and talk to me privately or in front of everyone, when they are not even walking in their own call, to presume and tell me things in which I should not do or should do and have no clue of my relationship and acuteness in hearing Holy Spirit and walking with Holy Spirit. Believe me I am human so I do mess up however, there is a depth to me that unless you are my husband, family or very close loved ones people have no clue how I walk with God. Therefore, the process of Gilgal and the heart transplant is to also reveal to us the authority we DO WALK IN and not allow satan to gain one inch!!!
Another example, is because I have been trained for 8 years!! Yes 8 years of ministering 8 to 10 hours at a time nonstop, Holy Spirit has trained me as a marathon runner for ministry leading up to our visit to the Philippines!!! I have had others tell me Robin you are not going to do all the ministry required of you, cannot minister everyday all day! You are right I cannot and I KNOW THAT!!!! LOL THAT IS WHY GOD CAN AND GOD WILL BECAUSE I KNOW! Like Jesus addressing Peter’s attentiveness to the NATURE OF MAN, I too at times have to address man’s nature and tell PEOPLE BY GOD’S GRACE I WILL MINISTER EVERY, EVERY, EVERY MEETING!!!!! I have seen the enemy’s plans!!!!
Moreover, when I ministered in South Carolina in March I ministered 19 engagements in 12 days and each one was hours at a time and God in that time was preparing me for the Philippines; I only yield to God’s training and endurance classes, not man’s nature and with that use God’s knowledge, wisdom and understanding in The Call!!!!! Therefore, when people, many have, on occasion said to me that I will not be able to minister that entire month in the Philippines as scheduled, I do not listen to them; IT is God that has Called me, it is HIS CALL FOR MY LIFE! He has trained me for over 8 years for this call with endurance, perseverance, stamina, discipline and yielding to Holy Spirit for 8 years for the Call thus far! My normal schedule is waking at 4:15 during normal weekday, especially school year, even when I worked full time 40+ hours and ministered for 20 hours a week, on top of 25 hours a week of being a taxi, it is about God, about The Call, not Robin! Therefore, I will do it through Christ Jesus Whom I CAN AND WILL DO ALL THINGS! People simply see what they want to see everywhere even myself! That is why God has to give me a heart transplant so that I don’t allow myself to given into the nature of man on anyone else and their Call! I have to be given over to Holy Spirit! Especially since one of the anointing I flow in is a breaker anointing to get people into their destiny, into the Call of God for their life!
As well as the enemy attacking my authority on that level, as he does all of us, in the past the enemy has attacked my authority in ministry to bow down and let others minister, where it looks like God but is not! It is a deceptive attack of the enemy. I will distinguish this from my anointing as an equipper of the gifts of Holy Spirit. Rich and I equip many in the gifts of Holy Spirit and I mentor and pour into women for THEIR MINISTRY, not MY MINISTRY! That is the difference. This is distinguishable from when I am doing the Call God has given me and ministering with others and at times where the enemy will infiltrate the ministry and have me “feel” as though I need to give the floor to someone else. God has showed me several times over the past 6 years how the enemy has done this to me in ministry and that is NOT GOD! Elijah trained Elisha, Joshua trained the Commanders, Jesus trained the disciples and they equipped them all in the training. However, Elijah and Joshua did not allow those they equipped to do their ministry. When you do ministry and have many people involved in your ministry and equipping them, there have been times the enemy has tried to usurp my authority the past six years by people in the meetings trying to take the attention, others trying to say how things should be run, others trying to tell Rich and I what we are doing wrong, etc. In being over a ministry with my husband for over 6 years, we have seen a lot and the enemy will do like that of Peter, where they do flow in Holy Spirit but still walk in the flesh and are attentive the nature of man, limiting God in your Call! THAT IS NOT GOD!
The heart transplant at Gilgal is demonstrative of how God awakens you by bringing His thundering and lightening to your soul from Revelation 4:5!! Before the throne of God is thundering and lightening and seven torches with fire, which is the sevenfold spirit of God!!! It is bringing an awakening, a deeper awakening of God, of the Call and exposing to your soul where the enemy attacks your authority in Christ Jesus! We see this demonstrated at Gilgal with Joshua in Joshua Chapter 10 while Joshua is walking out his Call!
6 And the men of Gibeon sent to Joshua at the camp in Gilgal, saying, Do not relax your hand from your servants; come up to us quickly and save us and help us, for all the kings of the Amorites who dwell in the hill country are gathered against us. 7 So Joshua went up from Gilgal, he and all the warriors with him and all the mighty men of valor. 8 And the Lord said to Joshua, Do not fear them, for I have given them into your hand; there shall not a man of them stand before you. 9 So Joshua came upon them suddenly, having gone up from Gilgal all night. 10 And the Lord caused [the enemies] to panic before Israel, who slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon and chased them along the way that goes up to Beth-horon and smote them as far as Azekah and Makkedah. 11 As they fled before Israel, while they were descending [the pass] to Beth-horon, the Lord cast great stones from the heavens on them as far as Azekah, killing them. More died because of the hailstones than the Israelites slew with the sword. Joshua 10:6-11 AMP
Here in Joshua 10:6-11, Joshua is camping at Gilgal and the men from Gibeon cry out for his defense of their nation. Joshua goes up from “Gilgal” the place where God has done a heart transplant bringing a circumcision of the heart in Joshua 4 and 5. However, scholars’ debate that this Gilgal is a different Gilgal from that of Joshua 4 and even state there are 3 Gilgals in the Old Testament. The point that Holy Spirit wants to make is that it is still a GILGAL, a place where God is working on our hearts removing the reproaches of the sin nature/iniquitous roots and replacing it with here, a Lion Heart Roar, of that of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, JESUS!!!! So that we walk in the CALL!! Here at Gilgal Joshua is instructed not to fear the enemy and that God had already at that moment delivered the enemy in Joshua’s hand before he even went to battle! God had won the battle in JOSHUA’S NEW HEART, THE HEART TRANSPLANT, WHERE HE HAD THE HEART OF GOD!! JOSHUA WAS AFTER GOD’S HEART AND WALKED IN IT! God brought judgment on Joshua’s enemies; casting great stones from the heavens kill.ing them! More died because of the hailstones than were slain by Israel! The battle truly is the Lord’s battle we simply trust and obey walking out the Call!
12 Then Joshua spoke to the Lord on the day when the Lord gave the Amorites over to the Israelites, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, be silent and stand still at Gibeon, and you, moon, in the Valley of Ajalon! 13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation took vengeance upon their enemies. Is not this written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of the heavens and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. 14 There was no day like it before or since, when the Lord heeded the voice of a man. For the Lord fought for Israel. Joshua 10:12-14 AMP.
Here when Joshua, after having his heart circumcised, walking in a heart after God’s heart and receiving courage and strength from God to destroy the enemy had risen up in great authority that he spoke to the SUN!!!! LOL!!! WOW!!!!! Joshua lifted up his voice with such a voice of victory and triumph, such an authority, after the nature of God, not man, and spoke with the voice of God to the SUN “STAND STILL!” And the Word of God states that the Lord heeded the Voice of Man! WOW!!! God give us Your Heart, a Heart Transplant that when we speak God you heed our voice!!!! God send us Your lightening and thundering to our heart, the sevenfold Spirit of God!!!! Since 2002 God would continually have me over and over again call in the fullness of Holy Spirit as prophesied regarding Jesus in Isaiah 11:1-3! God would continually have me call in The Spirit of the Lord, The Spirit of Counsel, The Spirit of Knowledge, the Spirit of Wisdom, the Spirit of Understanding and the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord to rest upon me. It is walking with Holy Spirit in all of these dimensions whereby we walk out our Call!
15 Then Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to the camp at Gilgal. 16 Those five kings fled and hid themselves in the cave of Makkedah. 17 And it was told Joshua, The five kings are hidden in the cave at Makkedah. 18Joshua said, Roll great stones to the cave’s mouth, and set men to guard them. 19 But do not stay. Pursue your enemies and fall upon their rear; do not allow them to enter their cities, for the Lord your God has given them into your hand. 20 When Joshua and the Israelites had ended slaying them until they were wiped out and the remnant remaining of them had entered into fortified cities, 21 All the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace; none moved his tongue against any of the Israelites. 22 Then said Joshua, Open the mouth of the cave and bring out those five kings to me from the cave. 23 They brought the five kings out of the cave to him–the kings of Jerusalem, Hebron, Jarmuth, Lachish, and Eglon. 24 When they brought out those kings to Joshua, [he] called for all the Israelites and told the commanders of the men of war who went with him, Come, put your feet on the necks of these kings. And they came and put their feet on the [kings’] necks. 25 Joshua said to them, Fear not nor be dismayed; be strong and of good courage. For thus shall the Lord do to all your enemies against whom you fight. Joshua 10:15-25 Amp
Next we see Joshua “returned” and all of Israel with him, to “Gilgal.” Although, Joshua had been in a great battle and walked in such authority where God heeded his voice, staying the moon, Joshua walked in great knowledge, wisdom and understanding by God’s grace, knowing that he was only man, that after such a great feat he still needed to return to Gilgal, for further encamping, lodging with God in order to hear clearly about THE CALL! We are tested continually throughout our lives and our heart is exposed time after time again, most times, after our greatest victories, so that we maintain humility beyond ourselves to serve our Lord only and this happens by exposing our hearts at Gilgal! Therefore, Joshua returns to Gilgal with his men. Joshua received word that the five kings were now hiding in caves and now since his stone, the reproach had been removed from his heart, he now was able through God to be one to place the stone over his enemy! We become anointed by God to cause a rolling of God’s righteous indignation (the reproach, meaning disgrace) to be put on top of the enemy, demonstrated first of all when he instructed his men to roll the stones in front of the cave. Before, the finished the kings though, Joshua and his men went after others to not let them get away. Later Joshua, opens the mouth of the cave to deal with the five kings. Joshua has the kings brought out and calls his commanders, those whom he is pouring into, over, mentoring, and shows them how to put their feet on the enemy’s neck! While they have their feet on the neck Joshua instructs his commanders “be strong and of good courage, for thus the Lord shall do to your enemies!” Joshua is exhorting them as he has been exhorted by God! However let’s look further; Joshua maintains his position and does not let his commanders usurp his authority or the nation of Israel, he does not let them have opportunity to interfere with the Call. Many times, Holy Spirit has disciplined me in knowing when I am walking in the flesh and the spirit. For a lengthy time Holy Spirit had me wear a black suit every Sunday to church between 2002-2004. Moreover, during this time Holy Spirit began giving me massive revelations and would not allow me to speak on them because God was training me on walking in the spirit and not the flesh. While we were in bible studies, business meetings, or other places of fellowship people would be talking about the revelation they had about this part of God’s word, this scripture, etc. God had given me revelation that was mind blowing about that which was being discussed. However, God had brought me to a time of being silent, a SEASON of being silent, that although I had great great great revelation I was not allowed to give it because Holy Spirit had not instructed me to give it. I even at times would talk to Holy Spirit in my head and say, but Holy Spirit they are saying this and You showed me this and Holy Spirit would say Robin this is your test of talking only in the spirit and not in the flesh. Even at times when Rich and I were brought in front of a business to talk the microphone was given to me and I was asked to speak but Holy Spirit did not tell me I could speak so I refused to speak. They were baffled!!! The nature of man is to want to be heard and to speak about everything we think or we know! LOLOLOL. Sorry I cannot help myself I have been through this. That is why man times at meetings, bible studies, or fellowships when someone talks although it sounds so spiritual and holy I smell the flesh and I hear the flesh there is no spirit in it. Moreover, an entire 15 minutes nearly will be taken up by someone who is in the flesh pulling away from God only to give glory to themselves and how much they “know.” (You should read the book Holy Spirit wrote through me I am like this in that book consistently, ask women who have thrown it against the wall several times but by God’s grace have been healed because of the Truth of The Word and Spirit.) However, God has been and continues to be patient with me as well as many of His great men and women who have poured into my life as I grew up in maturity in the spirit and I ask God to give me continued grace with those people until they mature. Holy Spirit taught me YOU DO NOT TALK PERIOD UNLESS I HAVE TOLD YOU! Yes, you have got it! I get permission to speak before I do speak. However, again I am human and there are times where I have not asked and speak in my flesh and have to repent.
26 Afterward Joshua smote and slew them and hanged their bodies on five trees, and they hung on the trees until evening. 27 At sunset Joshua ordered and they took the bodies down from the trees and cast them into the cave where the kings had hidden and laid great stones on the cave’s mouth, which remain to this very day. 28 Joshua took Makkedah that day and smote it and its king with the sword and utterly destroyed everyone in it. He left none remaining. And he did to the king of Makkedah as he had done to the king of Jericho. 29 Then Joshua and all Israel went from Makkedah to Libnah and attacked Libnah. 30 And the Lord gave it also and its king into Israel’s hands, and Joshua smote it with the sword, and all the people in it. He left none remaining in it. And he did to its king as he had done to the king of Jericho. 31 And Joshua passed from Libnah, and all Israel with him, to Lachish and encamped against it and attacked it. 32 And the Lord delivered Lachish into the hands of Israel, and Joshua took it on the second day and smote it with the sword, and all the people in it, as he had done to Libnah. 33 Then Horam king of Gezer came up to help Lachish, and Joshua smote him and his people–until he had left none remaining. 34 From Lachish Joshua and all Israel went on to Eglon, laid siege to it, and attacked it. 35 And they took it that day and smote it with the sword and utterly destroyed all who were in it that day, as he had done to Lachish. 36 Then Joshua with all Israel went up from Eglon to Hebron, and they attacked it 37 And took it and smote it with the sword, and its king and all its towns and everyone in it. He left none remaining, as he had done to Eglon, and utterly destroyed it and all its people. 38 And Joshua and all Israel with him returned to Debir and attacked it. 39 And he took it, with its king and all its towns, and they smote them with the sword and utterly destroyed everyone in it. He left none remaining. As he had done to Hebron and to Libnah and its king, so he did to Debir and its king. 40 So Joshua smote all the land, the hill country, the South, the lowland, and the slopes, and all their kings. He left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the [a]Lord, the God of Israel, commanded. 41 And Joshua smote them from Kadesh-barnea even to Gaza, and all the country of Goshen even to Gibeon. 42 Joshua took all these kings and their land at one time, because the Lord, the God of Israel, fought for Israel. 43 And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to the camp at Gilgal. Joshua 10:26-43 Amp
Joshua then gave orders for the commanders and Israel to continue the destruction of the enemy by slaying the king and the entire enemy at ONE TIME because the God of Israel, fought for Israel (Joshua 10:42). The Word does not say that Joshua fought for Israel; the Word says God fought for Israel! Joshua simply maintained his position with God as he was at Gilgal before he fought! God had given the battle to Joshua when he was at Gilgal! Moreover, after the battle we see in Joshua 10:43 Joshua returned and all of Israel with him, to Gilgal! There is a continual, forever, nonstop, place of returning to Gilgal! It is the place where we continue to lay our heart before the Lord, saying GOD SEARCH MY HEART! Joshua had just been in battle, there was a spilling of the blood of another man. It was a time not just to sing and rejoice but another life had been killed therefore it was a time to maintain a soberness of God’s love for even our enemies! This brings me to the point of Osama Bin Laden. When it was discovered about his death many people rejoiced. It is true that he was an enemy of God’s plans and purposes, after all though Osama Bin Laden, was still a man! A man created by God, created in the image of God! It is a time whereby we lay ourselves down and give our heart to God that although the battle is won God still has love towards our enemies because He created them! This was a perspective that Joshua had, which is why he returned to Gilgal to walk in a humble heart, a contrite spirit that could be a vessel utilized by God for His Will!!!! For The CALL!!!!! God infused this perspective into Joshua at the first Gilgal in Chapter 5 of Joshua.
13 When Joshua was by Jericho, he looked up, and behold, a Man stood near him with His drawn sword in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, Are you for us or for our adversaries? 14 And He said, No [neither], but as Prince of the Lord’s host have I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, What says my Lord to His servant? 15 And the Prince of the Lord’s host said to Joshua, Loose your shoes from off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy. And Joshua did so. Joshua 5:13-15 AMP.
I pray that God in fuse you for The Call! I pray that at Gilgal in this heart transplant God give you an awakening of His thundering and lightening in your soul to bring forth the Roar of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the authority of Christ Jesus in you to walk out the Call of God for your life!!!! I ask Holy Spirit to expose to the light any areas where satan is masquerading as an angel of light and usurping the authority of Christ Jesus in you! I ask for God to infuse you with grace to overcome this attack against your soul by healing you with His marvelous light, life and love in Jesus Name! I call forth a richness of His knowledge, wisdom and understanding to be imparted to you by His Spirit in Jesus Name!
Meeting at Gilgal Part 2 “A Heart Transplant at Gilgal”
by Robin Kirby-Gatto 7/28/11
Laying there wrecked in the middle of the overwhelming joy of Christ’s joy being made complete in me left me wrecked and undone as waves of glory continued to go throughout my being the evening of July 19, 2011. I was still lying on the floor prostrate, unable to move under God’s weighty glory for a while until I was released by His grace. Once God released me from that place I found myself completely as if I had been in a car wreck and I completely and utterly crashed into GOD!!! I crashed into all of His goodness, His love and His glory in that encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. It was in this same place that God had been plowing deeper within my soul to bring a release of His glory the Saturday night that I was preaching at The Cave, July 23, 2011.
This place God said was Gilgal, a place whereby, God would remove the reproach of parts of my soul that had tormented me for years and pulled on my emotions making it difficult at times to do what I wanted to do and find myself doing the very thing I did not want to do, such as Paul the Apostle. It was that old sin nature trying to rise up in me that was at times pulling on my emotions from years past where the enemy had sowed a lie into my soul. God had given me an understanding of this a few weeks earlier during another encounter, in my time with the Lord, in which I saw a six year-old girl standing before a big table and with determination and concentration she kept pounding on articles that were on the table saying over and over again “Bad! Bad! Bad! Bad! Bad!” I was shocked at the sight I was seeing and the Lord told me “Robin that is you.” I was shocked and said “Me, God how can that be?” Then He responded that is the part of you that controls much of what you believe to be “insecurity” and in actuality is a lie in your soul that started as a mole hill and finally grew into a mountain. That part of your soul you have to bring into the light to where I bring My healing Light to you and remove the reproach of the sin nature from you. God had started this process right before I started teaching a series on Psalm 23 – Psalm 31, where God was taking me into the thrones of my soul in which He wanted to bring healing and wholeness so He would be in complete Lordship over my life. As I did yield to the Lord and what He told me I then agreed to bring that part of my soul into the Light and all of a sudden I felt healing waves of glory run over me time and time again removing the reproach of Egypt away from my soul that pulled on my emotions. When I did I felt God fully remove iniquitous roots from my soul as He did back in 2002 when He delivered me completely from being an alcoholic. He totally removed all desire and the reproach of drinking/addiction from me in 2002 when His liquid glory poured over me and started removing the residue of the alcoholism from my physical body. Prior to 2002 I could not sleep on sheets without them being bleached by the alcohol that went through my pores onto the sheets making an outline of my body time after time again no matter what sheets I bought, Tommy Hilfiger, Indian Cotton Sheets no matter what It was totally bleached that I would breakdown and buy white sheets so I wouldn’t worry as to the bleaching my body would cause. God in a single moment removed that reproach in 2002 and forever set me free that there was no desire for alcohol from that moment forward. I could not comprehend or conceive of any desire to drink another beer ever again; God removed it!!! Likewise, God removed the reproach away from me of feeling like a “bad girl” where the enemy of my soul had rooted that lie into me and continued to have me operate from that mode of being that I truly would be controlled at times by others due to their disproval of me at times or care in some small way what others thought. When God set me free from this place of feeling like a “bad girl” I truly became FREE!!!! I got radical I tell you More Radical and FREE!!!! (As if you can imagine that LOL!)
I had a new found freedom of God from this deeper circumcision of my heart whereby I would let Him take me into places of my own heart that prior to this time I never considered or thought would be an issue. Continually over the last month God has been taking me to places in my soul that I didn’t know that were at enmity to God and held on to the lie of the enemy where God had to show me the truth of the matter and I repented, giving everything to God and allowing His healing love to infuse me. As I did God showed me a king in the word that did not have success and would not allow God to remove the reproach at Gilgal. Remember the whole purpose of Gilgal is to allow God to remove the reproach of our sin nature, Egypt, out of us and purify our hearts. As I did allow God to remove the reproach it was a part wherein He completely ruled as Lord over that part of my soul and the sin nature was removed in order that satan would not have anything in me as it relates to that part of my soul. As Jesus said to His disciples, satan had nothing in Him, in Jesus. Likewise, we are going through the same process whereby God is purging our souls bringing us to a place where all the hooks of the enemy are removed and there are no hooks he has in us.
Gilgal is a place of testing of whether or not we will allow God to remove the reproach away from us or whether or not we decide we want our agenda and not God’s agenda, we want our will and not God’s will that we take things into our hands to “make it happen.” It is obeying the Lord; and also if we choose to promote “our kingdom” and “ourselves” instead of God promoting us. Promotion only comes from the Lord. I have had people in ministry amazed at my ministry opportunities across the world and ask me who the pastors or ministers are in the locations and how I got connected to them and all I can say is God! It is only God! No man can say they have helped me, no ministry, no one, not even me, lol!! The only One who got me here is God! This is what I had learned many years prior to this year but knowing the test so well it gave me opportunity to see the test that King Saul went through at Gilgal (the place where God removes the reproach, not man) and seeing the failure of King Saul, and what it lead to. This is identified in 1 Samuel 13.
1 SAUL WAS [forty] years old when he began to reign; and when he had reigned two years over Israel, 2 Saul chose 3,000 men of Israel; 2,000 were with [him] in Michmash and the hill country of Bethel, and 1,000 with Jonathan in Gibeah of Benjamin. The rest of the men he sent away, each one to his home. 3 Jonathan smote the Philistine garrison at Geba, and the Philistines heard of it. And Saul blew the trumpet throughout all the land, saying, Let the Hebrews hear! 4 All Israel heard that Saul had defeated the Philistine garrison and also that Israel had become an abomination to the Philistines. And the people were called out to join Saul at Gilgal. 5 And the Philistines gathered to fight with Israel, 30,000 chariots and 6,000 horsemen and troops like sand on the seashore in multitude. They came up and encamped at Michmash, east of Beth-aven. 6 When the men of Israel saw that they were in a tight situation–for their troops were hard pressed–they hid in caves, holes, rocks, tombs, and pits or cisterns. 7 Some Hebrews had gone over the Jordan to the land of Gad and Gilead. As for Saul, he was still in Gilgal, and all the people followed him trembling. 8 Saul waited seven days, according to the set time Samuel had appointed. But Samuel had not come to Gilgal, and the people were scattering from Saul. 9 So Saul said, Bring me the burnt offering and the peace offerings. And he offered the burnt offering [which he was forbidden to do]. 10 And just as he finished offering the burnt offering, behold, Samuel came! Saul went out to meet and greet him. 11 Samuel said, What have you done? Saul said, Because I saw that the people were scattering from me, and that you did not come within the days appointed, and that the Philistines were assembled at Michmash, 12 I thought, The Philistines will come down now upon me to Gilgal, and I have not made supplication to the Lord. So I forced myself to offer a burnt offering. 13 And Samuel said to Saul, You have done foolishly! You have not kept the commandment of the Lord your God which He commanded you; for the Lord would have established your kingdom over Israel forever; 14 But now your kingdom shall not continue; the Lord has sought out [David] a man after His own heart, and the Lord has commanded him to be prince and ruler over His people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you. 1 Samuel 13:1-14 Amplified.
King Saul was at Gilgal when there was a test to see whether or not he would wait upon the Lord or whether or not he would take matters into his own hands. King Saul’s men met him at Gilgal where King Saul was instructed to wait upon the prophet Samuel to offer the burnt offering before they were to go into battle. However, when King Saul saw his men scattering and felt “pressure” on his soul he then “forces himself” (give me a break, but that is the excuse our flesh has, we forced ourselves) to do what he was forbidden to do. King Saul wanted to promote his own kingdom and not the kingdom of God that is why he acted the way he did in the flesh and it cost him everything! It cost him his kingdom! The prophet Samuel said to Saul, “what have done?” and Saul’s reply was “I forced myself to offer a burnt offering.” Samuel’s reply to Saul was You have done foolishly and as a result the Lord would no longer establish him as King but rather would find one WHO IS AFTER HIS OWN HEART, THE HEART OF GOD! King David did not want his own heart but rather wanted the heart of God that is why he was being promoted to king because King David never promoted himself, rather it was God that promoted King David and God took him from glory to glory in establishing David’s Kingdom, where Jesus would reign as King forever on the throne of David established in justice and righteousness. (Isaiah 9:7). Saul was not after God’s heart but merely his kingdom and as a result he lost the very thing he tried to establish. The heart of King Saul was exposed at Gilgal when his impatience to wait on the Lord demonstrated his deceitful heart.
Gilgal is a testing of our souls, whether or not we are serving God for our own kingdoms or if we are serving God for Himself! This brought me back to the place on the beach the morning of July 22, 2011 prior to preaching at The Cave that night where God told me that He was offering me a choice, and only one of the three was what I could pick and what I pick that He said He would do. He said “Robin, pick one, I could make you a great teacher of My Word, or I could make you a great prophet, or I could make you a great lover. Which of these do you pick and that will I do?” My immediate response is God I want to be Your great lover! Then He showed me throwing down crowns at His feet and said these are all Mine anyway, prophet, teacher, evangelist, pastor, and apostle (the fivefold ministry offices) they are My crowns to give God told me and I said they are all Yours anyway God take them!!! But great lover God!!! Great lover that is mine for you!!! That is my fruit, my crown to willingly pick up and lay down at your feet over and over and over again. King Saul, wanted all the titles, all the accolades!!!! King David only wanted God’s heart!!!! King Saul wanted the crown!!! King David wanted the One that gave the crown! King Saul wanted the treasures of the Kingdom! King David wanted the One that gave the treasure, for God was King David’s great reward as He was to Father Abraham!!!! God is the inheritance of the priesthood which is why the priest was not given land as an inheritance because God Himself was the inheritance for the priesthood! King David was a true priest of the Lord, He was a servant that ministered to God!
Therefore, King Saul did not have the reproach of the sin nature removed from him but rather chose to keep it and as a result lost it all! He lost the kingdom to which God would have established him but his heart was found to be after promoting himself rather than promoting and ministering to God. This time at Gilgal is to determine whose kingdom we want. Do we want our kingdom, our ministry, our life, our home, our everything or do we simply want the One we love so desperately!!!! OUR LORD AND SAVIOR!!! JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!! If it is the latter which it is if you are reading this then be confident that God is doing a deeper work at Gilgal this turn because as you we see in notes to come there is a CONTINUAL RETURNING TO GILGAL TIME AND TIME AND TIME AGAIN!! A CONTINUAL LODGING AND CAMPING OUT WITH GOD!!! Each time God gets deeper in our soul at Gilgal to simply expose to ourselves the deeper circumcision that needs to take place whereby He can remove the reproach of our sin nature, therefore transplanting His own heart into our frame, so that we can be giant killers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To be continued!
Pray this if you want to go deeper:
(A warning it will happen!)
Dear Lord, remove all the reproach from me in this hour that is in need of being removed from my soul Lord. God I ask You to expose to the light anything that is hindering me from fully giving myself over to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in every area of my soul. I only want You to be Lord in my life and if there are any areas where I might be trying to be lord I ask you to expose it to the light and forgive me in Jesus Name! I repent for any areas in which I have not fully yielded to Your Lordship King Jesus and ask that you remove that sin nature out of me and remove the reproach forever with all the residue from that sin nature being removed, as well. I only ask that God I receive Your heart, Your presence, Your Love, and Your Light in me in Jesus Name! I ask You God to continue the work on me at this time during this lodging of my soul at Gilgal and complete it fully Lord in Jesus Name! Amen!

The Meeting at Gilgal
by Robin Kirby-Gatto 7/27/11
The week of July 18-22, 2011 God began to stir my heart for the next encounter The Bride of Christ would be experiencing. God had brought my family across the Jordan whereby we were entering the promises of God. In opening the eyes of my understanding, God showed me that we would be entering the Promise Land only in a time of preparing to battle and war, removing the enemies of God, making His enemies His footstool. As we crossed over and begin to get an awareness of the new spiritual terrain, my spiritual senses were becoming heightened by Holy Spirit to go deeper in my walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. He began to take me through a series of events that would quicken my spirit to open my heart as never before. In this opening of my heart to the Great Physician who only could do heart surgery on such a heart that was deceitful to myself, I knew that there was a greater yielding, a greater lying down, and a greater surrender. I could sense Holy Spirit bringing me to a place of deep circumcision that I had yet to experience. This area is well known to me because I constantly am allowing the Hebrews 4:12 Sword of the Spirit to cut into my heart dividing between my intents and motives, and the soul and spirit. Moreover, Holy Spirit had me write a word called Kingdom Alignment in 2009 that penetrates one of the deepest circumcisions I had undergone ridding me of a religious spirit that would send people to hell and removing it from me, in order to pour in the Love of Christ Jesus to love the lost, especially my oldest son, Christopher, with an unfailing love! A love that would fail at nothing but all together would continue a perpetual sending forth of the Light of Christ Jesus into the souls that were desperate for Him Most! Desperate for Jesus as the Lover of the soul!
In doing this God began to say the word “Gilgal” to me over and over and over again. When I heard the word in my spirit He told me to go on a treasure hunt to find my Beautiful Christ, my Lover at a deeper encounter than ever experienced. I began to do a quest on Gilgal and found my Lover over and over, leading me further to a revelation of our Lord, our Savior, in which I would find a deeper cutting of my deceitful heart whereby My Lover would do heart surgery on me, giving me a heart transplant, replacing my deceitful heart with the heart of God the Father!!!!! Then as I went on the quest I saw the same thing occur with King David, that God said He had found “a man” after His OWN HEART! God brought me to a place of wanting the heart transplant, His beautiful flawless, loving heart for my very own whereby when I received more of His heart I could feel Him literally kissing my own heart time and time again, leaving me wrecked, shaken, resolute and emptied time and time again. A process that has been intensifying since 7/18/11 and continues to increase in intensity and fire by Holy Spirit preparing me for a greater baptism of Fire to carry to the nations!
There is no way in which one note alone can do this justice and I am prepared to do as many notes as it takes to herald this message to a Generation of Desperate Lovers, who have become dissatisfied with the wine of religion and allowed the taste to be removed by Holy Spirit in order to receive the NEW WINE, the Righteousness of Christ Jesus to pour into a New Wine Skin, one that has been prepared for the transformation that only the King of Glory can do Himself!
The message Holy Spirit had me title, was A Heart Transplant at Gilgal! This message was preached on Saturday night at The Cave in Saraland, Alabama at the church of Pastors Bryan and Angela Jones, where God specifically began this transforming grace of His work for the revival in the land! The date I preached the message was July 23, 2011 and service began at 4pm. Right before service began we all met in Pastor Bryan’s office, where we had intercessory prayer for the service. As I was asked to pray Holy Spirit said pray what My prophet Elijah prayed that “I see a cloud the size of a man’s fist” and call in the Latter Rain, My Glory Rain! I prayed that right before service and when you listen to the actual audio of the service you can hear where the thunder comes in so loud and such a torrential down pour about an hour after I had been preaching, demonstrating the prophecy God had spoken through me in intercession. Moreover, the vision He had me release to the people is on my way down to the Mobile, Alabama area, to Saraland God showed me the glory rain! As a matter of fact God showed me the Glory Rain that morning while I was still in Birmingham, Alabama preparing for my trip down. While Rich and I were traveling down I then saw God do something that left me totally speechless! He said “Robin do you want to see where , the glory rain is coming from over the land?” I responded like a child who was about to get Christmas presents “Yes God!”
As I watched and waited I saw God with His hands hold out His very own heart and then He opened His heart! Out of His heart came this liquid, honey yellow, living fire glory rain! I was blown away! He said the glory rain was coming out of His very own heart! When this happens God said that His people would begin to receive His heart and as a result have a heart transplant! I was left broken and undone, trembling at the awesomeness and the goodness of God!
Then God began to give me download after download all the way from Birmingham, Alabama to Saraland, Alabama that day of July 22, 2011. (That Friday we were having a fellowship with The Cave and were in route to that event). During the midst of the drive, while He was giving me revelation upon revelation I then begin to have to retreat from the Word and the revelation as I imagined the Seraphim did when they would continually have a revelation of God, crying “Holy! Holy! Holy!” I could not process the awesomeness, the greatness of our God in what He was doing because the revelation of it all continued to leave me undone and wrecked that I had to breathe and digest His Holiness!
This is how it started. God had me look at Gilgal at first as it relates to Joshua and when Joshua had first crossed over. Then as I did God showed me all throughout His Word how Gilgal is a place of a heart transplant, a removing of the reproach of Egypt off of us in order that we might be more transformed into the image of Christ Jesus from Glory to Glory! Furthermore, He showed me in His Word how Gilgal is also a place of testing to see if we will submit our will, our own heart, to His plans and purposes or if we will instead serve our own kingdom and agenda. There is always a Gilgal before promotion; God only promotes those who will carry His heart, His plans, intentions, leanings and inclinations. We see this with King Saul, Elijah, Joshua and other great Saints! Moreover, we will see the prophetic implications with even Jesus and the disciples as we look at this revelation of the Heart Transplant!
First of all, when Rich and I went to South Carolina the week before the Saraland meeting, we met Stan and Nancy Patterson who have great wisdom and understanding. Stan introduced us to a book titled “The Heart’s Code” by Paul Pearsall, Ph.D. whereby the unveiling of the language and energy of the heart is understood. It is proven in science that organs have memory, skin has memory, and moreover, that heart has memory. Therefore when people have a heart transplant it has been proven that someone who has never drink or rode motorcycles before will all of a sudden have a “desire” or “urge” to drink a beer and ride a motorcycle for no reason at all. When they did research on the heart donor it was discovered later that the donor was someone who rode motorcycles and drink beer. The very memory in that heart that the original donor had was being transmitted in the heart of the new recipient! The heart’s energy, memories were pouring out into the new donor. God showed me likewise, that as we receive more of His Heart, that His memory, His thoughts and intentions would then begin to flood our own heart and we find ourselves doing things that He desires! He gives us the desires of our hearts, literally, through the transmission of the Heart Code in His Heart through our heart! He is the donor and we are the recipient! We receive the heart of Christ Jesus, the Heart of God the Father, infused by His Holy Spirit! This all occurs at Gilgal, where we lay down the deceitfulness and wickedness within our own heart and let Him remove it from us to HEAL us and give us more of Him!
When Joshua crossed the Jordan there was a process whereby he came to a place of receiving a heart transplant from God the Father! This is identified in Joshua 4.
1 WHEN ALL the nation had fully passed over the Jordan, the Lord said to Joshua, 2 Take twelve men from among the people, one man out of every tribe, 3 And command them, Take twelve stones out of the midst of the Jordan from the place where the priests’ feet stood firm; carry them over with you and leave them at the place where you lodge tonight. 4 Then Joshua called the twelve men of the Israelites whom he had appointed, a man from each tribe. 5 And Joshua said to them, Pass over before the ark of the Lord your God in the midst of the Jordan, and take up every man of you a stone on his shoulder, as is the number of the tribes of the Israelites, 6 That this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, What do these stones mean to you? 7 Then you shall tell them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord; when it passed over the Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off. So these stones shall be to the Israelites a memorial forever.8 And the Israelites did as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones out of the midst of the Jordan, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, as the Lord told Joshua, and carried them over with them to the place where they lodged and laid them down there. 9 And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan in the place where the feet of the priests bearing the Ark of the Covenant had stood. And they are there to this day. 10 For the priests who bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan until everything was finished that the Lord commanded Joshua to tell the people, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua. The people passed over in haste. 11 When all the people had passed over, the ark of the Lord and the priests went over in the presence of the people. 12 And the sons of Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh passed over armed before the [other] Israelites, as Moses had bidden them; 13 About 40,000 [of these] prepared for war passed over before the Lord to the plains of Jericho for battle. 14 On that day the Lord magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they stood in awe of him, as they stood in awe of Moses, all the days of his life.15 And the Lord said to Joshua, 16 Order the priests bearing the ark of the Testimony to come up out of the Jordan. 17 So Joshua commanded the priests, Come up out of the Jordan. 18 And when the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord had come up out of the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of their feet were lifted up to the dry land, the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and flowed over all its banks as they had before. 19 And the people came up out of the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month and encamped in Gilgal on the east border of Jericho. 20 And those twelve stones which they took out of the Jordan Joshua set up in Gilgal. 21 And he said to the Israelites, When your children ask their fathers in time to come, What do these stones mean? 22 You shall let your children know, Israel came over this Jordan on dry ground. 23 For the Lord your God dried up the waters of the Jordan for you until you passed over, as the Lord your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up for us until we passed over, 24 That all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the Lord is mighty and that you may reverence and fear the Lord your God forever. Joshua 4:4 Amp
Here Joshua is instructed by the Lord to have a leader from each of the twelve tribes of Israel go and gather a stone from the midst of the Jordan, where the priests were standing, on the dry ground of the Jordan that God had in His sovereignty performed a miracle and held the water so that Israel could cross over on dry ground. It was in the midst of the Jordan that God wanted to forever proclaim His goodness to the nations through Israel by having them gather a rock out of the midst of the Jordan and bringing it onto dry ground in order to create a memorial in Honor of the Living God and proclaim the testimony of the miracle to generations to come in the nation of Israel. The people of Israel came up from Jordan onto dry ground and encamped at Gilgal, where the stones were set up as a memorial to God providing a miraculous passage to Israel in crossing over the Jordan on dry ground. In order that ALL PEOPLES OF THE EARTH MAY KNOW THAT THE HAND OF THE LORD IS MIGHTY AND THAT YOU MAY REVERANCE AND FEAR THE LORD YOUR GOD FOREVER!
A couple of leading points Holy Spirit wants me to tell God’s Bride, first of all this is where we are spiritually, we are at Gilgal for heart surgery before we proceed into eating the fruit of the Land! We are at a place whereby He makes a heart incision removing the reproach of Egypt, of the sin nature (the world) from us, so that His heart, His pure heart replaces it and gives us A REVERANCE AND FEAR FOR THE LORD GOD. In the middle of the service on Saturday night the thunder of God begins to rumble when I mention the dimension of His Holy Spirit in the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord. Moreover, my next book out by Destiny Image in December 2011 will be Princess Warriors, which starts out in The Fear of the Lord. When in prayer and intercession God revealed one thing specifically to me regarding this heart transplant, I kept hearing over and over a certain word which I knew was to lead me on a God Quest for His revelation. I kept hearing “Augustus” and knew that God was leading me to the meaning of the name. The Name means “The Revered One!” AND God began telling me “Robin I want to teach you to Revere Me! To regard and respect Me with Holy Awe!” He then transcribed to me “When My people who are called by My Name look to Me with holy reverence they will see a quickening by My Spirit to open up heavenly portals. It is this Holy Reverence that opens up these portals! It is a lifting of the veil!”
He showed me that in order to receive this hunger and thirst for revering Him in a greater measure we would have to visit Gilgal time and time again! It is not a onetime thing; it is continual! Joshua is at Gilgal throughout the book of Joshua but it is noted by scholars that there is more than one Gilgal. Therefore, Holy Spirit said Gilgal is a position it is a place whereby we continually return to over and over and over, having God remove our reproach, our sinful nature, making us crucified with Christ Jesus!
Gilgal in Hebrew means a, wheel, the root word means “rolling away, a commitment to roll away, to remove the reproach!” That is what God did for Israel! As they crossed over the Jordan from the wilderness God had to remove all residue from Egypt and the wilderness off of them! He had to remove the reproach. We see this in Joshua 5.
7 So it was their uncircumcised children whom He raised up in their stead whom Joshua circumcised, because the rite had not been performed on the way. 8 When they finished circumcising all the males of the nation, they remained in their places in the camp till they were healed. 9 And the Lord said to Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you. So the name of the place is called Gilgal [rolling] to this day. 10 And the Israelites encamped in Gilgal; and they kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the month at evening in the plains of Jericho. 11 And on that same day they ate the produce of the land: unleavened cakes and parched grain. 12 And the manna ceased on the day after they ate of the produce of the land; and the Israelites had manna no more, but they ate of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year. 13 When Joshua was by Jericho, he looked up, and behold, a Man stood near him with His drawn sword in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, Are you for us or for our adversaries? 14 And He said, No [neither], but as Prince of the Lord’s host have I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, What says my Lord to His servant? 15 And the Prince of the Lord’s host said to Joshua, Loose your shoes from off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy. And Joshua did so. Joshua 5:7-15 Amp.
Here Holy Spirit pointed out to me that there was a circumcision at Gilgal, a place where Israel and Joshua laid down and encamped, lodged with God, so that He could do a circumcision of the heart bringing out the deceitfulness of this world, the generational curses from the heart and bring His heart into us. The Word states in verse 8 that they camped there till they were HEALED! It is not only a place where the circumcision takes place opening up the wounds in our soul but it is a place where we are HEALED! We cannot move forward out of Gilgal until we are healed by the Living God! Verse 9 states the Lord said to Joshua “THIS DAY HAVE I ROLLED AWAY THE REPROACH OF EGYPT FROM YOU” so they called the place Gilgal! It is where God removes the sin nature out of us, He removes the reproach and brings us His heart! Moreover, the time is significant too because it is the time of Passover! The time where Jesus is offered as the Passover Lamb for our sins! Jesus removed completely the reproach of sin from our life! However, we have to receive the fullness of what Jesus Christ has done! We have to allow Him to walk into the darkest places of our soul whereby He can bring the Light of Himself into those dark places of our heart, bringing the truth of Himself and crucifying us with Him! Where we are crucified with Him but also raised up with Him! Jordan in Hebrew means to “descend.” Holy Spirit said this is a twofold revelation whereby Christ descended to leave His throne of Glory and humbled Himself, coming as Son of God and Son of Man and in His ascension to Heaven He seated us with Him in heavenly places! Moreover, it is a place whereby we descend and place ourselves in being crucified with Him, where it is us that no longer us that lives but instead it is Christ in us Who lives! (Galatians 2:20). God took me through this process on July 19, 2011 when I went to a meeting with Tommie Zito in Birmingham, Alabama. When I was in worship I saw my Lover my Christ!!!! Jesus!!!! During the Holy Visitation He told me “Robin I want you to get on the cross there is more of you to be crucified.” I was flabbergasted and blown away because it was unexpected to say the least; I didn’t see it coming. This was the beginning of my interlude in ministry, whereby I would have to travel to Gilgal with My Savior, Christ Jesus!
As I was in worship, and I said yes Jesus I will lay upon the Cross, I will obey because I love you! I saw Him taking His flesh and it turned into bread and then I saw Him taking His blood and it turned into a cup of wine and He said “eat of my flesh and drink of my blood!” All I knew was at that moment my heart began to be laid open in front of my eyes and He said “Robin you still have unbelief and doubt that needs to be removed from you.” I saw the horror of the truth of what Jesus was saying and agreed for the removal of such hideousness to what was in contradiction to what Jesus died for in my life! He died so that I may live! He died so that I would be healed! He died so that I would believe! I ate the bread and drink the wine and found myself being swelled up with the heart of God! With the heart of my savior as Waves of Glory poured throughout my being and only could fall prostrate on the floor weeping at the Matter of His Heart!!!! At His Heart Memory!!! At His heart Intentions!!!!
