On my family summer vacation, we drove North from S FL to NY, bypassing going around Washington DC by going through West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland because of the traffic that we would meet on a Friday evening before the July 4th week. God gave me rainbows in each of the three states, as seen in my personal facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/tiffany.bretana/posts/10213928901840893. But when we were driving home SOUTH, from NY to S FL, we went through Washington DC, and I saw many of the governmental sites and buildings. I could sense the governmental authority being activated in a higher manner. MANY of the road signs were speaking to me as well. One in particular was a road sign that said Esther’s Restaurant on the way up North in Pennsylvania. And while at my cousin’s house, I would wake up early and go outside to sit on their porch and see the sunrise, and sing, worship, and praise the Lord. But while outside, a lot of young bees would constantly come near me each morning. I knew it was the Lord speaking of Deborah in the book of Judges who was a Judge and Prophetess. Deborah’s name means bee. Then yesterday night, I was asking the Lord what is the significance of the manner in which I went and came home from the trip as He kept bringing it to my remembrance. The Lord said to me, Tiffany you went up one way (NORTH), and you came home another way (SOUTH), a SHIFT has occurred. He also stated that when I was driving up it was the end of June (6), and when I was driving back down south that it was the beginning of July (7), a change of a season. In the book, Seven days of God’s Process: Understanding What God Is Doing in Your Life, Russell states that there are 7 days in God’s process, that the glyph for 7 is a crowned vav, or crowned and perfected six, six representing man (page 57-58). The Lord had been highlighting 2:17, as a friend had given me that scripture from Esther. The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti (Esther 2:17). In Russell Walden’s book Spiritual Meteorology: Understanding the Seven Spirits of God, pages 54-55, he writes North represents the Judgment seat of God, while South represents blessings. Russell Walden references both Psalm 48:2 and Habakkuk 3:3.
Psalm 48:2 Beautiful in elevation, The joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion on the sides of the north, The city of the great King.
Habakkuk 3:3 God came from Teman, The Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah His glory covered the heavens, And the earth was full of His praise.
Russell continues to write, “This speaks of the spiritual direction of your life. There are many verses that speak of drawing near to God, by moving from where you are to where God is. God’s throne is in the “sides of the north”. To draw near to God, is to draw near to His judgement seat in humility, acknowledging our sin, and throwing yourself on His available mercy. So, if you are drawing near to God in the (spiritual) North, then the blessing coming upon you come from the (figurative) South. The scriptures speak of the South as representing blessing and favor. “
The other day a gentleman told me, no man with a title Tiffany will want you, you know too much. Let it NOT be so!!! I truly believe these are the glass ceilings that others would put women under to keep them stuck in a certain place in the Kingdom. I believe that the true sons of God would cherish and love the gift and blessing of a woman who puts the Lord first and foremost, because knowing that she seeks her First Love, she seeks to do him good all the days of her life, as onto the Lord (Proverbs 31:12).
The Lord is saying, that many of My daughters have sought the way of humility through My process and they are being elevated in this time and hour. You are being crowned and given governmental mantles to rule and reign with Me, says the Lord. I have found you faithful in much, irregardless of those who have tried to put you under. You have found grace and favor in My sight. “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house (Matthew 5:14-15). I have been interceding for My Bride for these last 2000 years. Shall I not crown My Esthers’ or Deborahs’, My Bride to rule and reign with Me.
Revelation 4:1-3 After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a war trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.” At once I was in special communication with the Spirit; and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with One seated on the throne. And He who sat there appeared like the crystalline sparkle of a jasper stone and the fiery redness of a sardius stone, and encircling the throne there was a rainbow that looked like the color of an emerald.

The Ladies With The Lamp
By Tiffany Bretana
The Lord told me the other night the name Florence Nightingale. Upon doing research of who she was on Biography.com, there were a couple things the Lord highlighted to me. She was a TRAILBLAZER in the nursing industry, who greatly affected 19th and 20th century policies around proper care. She defied the expectations of the time and pursued what she saw as her God-given call, which she believed the vocation to be her divine purpose-nursing. She was determined to to pursue her true calling despite her parents’ objections and refusing marriage to pursue her call for something beyond a domestic life. She became known as “the Lady with the Lamp” by soldiers who were both moved and comforted by her endless supply of compassion, while others called her “the Angel of the Crimea”. Her work reduced the hospital death rates by two-thirds. All of this and more can be found and read on Biography.com @ http://www.biography.com/people/florence-nightingale-9423539
What is the Lord saying through this?
There have been positions where there has remained glass ceilings for women of faith. The Lord is raising WOMEN TRAILBLAZERS to take industries by force for the Kingdom of God. They have given up much of what is the social norms of what is expected of them, to PURSUE what they believe is their GOD-GIVEN CALL, despite naysayers and opposition. They will be called THE LADIES OF THE LAMP.
Matthew 11:12 From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violent assault, and violent men seize it by force as a precious prize.
Galatians 3:28 There is now no distinction in regard to salvation neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you who believe are all one in Christ Jesus no one can claim a spiritual superiority.
John 3:8 The wind blows where it wishes and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it is coming from and where it is going; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of Christ to the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good deeds and moral excellence, and recognize and honor and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Isaiah 14:27 For the Lord of hosts has decided and planned, and who can annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?”
