On Sunday, He reminded me of the prophetic word that Steve Mccracken brought our family in 2018.
I believe this is particularly relevant to this time - as well as what you've shared below, and the prophetic picture you sent today also.
The message from Steve to leaders is from 5 May 2018.
'I saw you as miners with helmet lights on. I saw you go from one blackened tunnel into another tunnel on a 90 degree left hand turn. And as you entered this new tunnel, it was only then that I noticed the lights shining brightly from your helmets'.
'I saw multiple people walking together and entering a new tunnel. Yet it was the collective individual lights that lit up the tunnel'.
Steve said in this message: 'The shift of position (90 degree left turn) is the belief that Father wants to bring revelation to me from Him, not just to me through others.'
There is a time for everyone to do their seeking, not relying on others.
It is only the Holy Spirit, not a person who is the Revealer of Truth.
Will you walk together, individually seeking? 'It was the collective, individual lights that lit up the tunnel'.
There is an invitation from Father.
Steve also mentioned 'isolation breeds error when it comes to people, and (isolated) truth', which is why we need multiple people walking together, no one person will receive all truth.
The 'isolation' word jumped out - and I felt that at this current time of 'self-isolation', where the world is isolating in 'fear and self-preservation', we are called to come 'underground with Him' (mining Truth)'. We might be physically isolated from others, but through the digging for Him - in the Spirit, we are collectively drawing near to Him, and one another. Instead of fear, to receive Love revealed. Instead of self-preservation, coming to know Him where Grace enables the losing of our life for His sake.
I love how His ways are always opposite to the worlds ways!
He also reminded me of Jonny Gilling's message from a while back where Jonny describes a picture God gave him of journeying through a blackened tunnel - but when the lights went on there were jewels embedded in the walls.
'For if you cry for discernment, lift your voice for understanding; If you seek her as silver, and search for her as hidden treasures; then you will discern the fear of the Lord and discover the knowledge of God.' Pro 2:3-4
'She is more precious than jewels; And nothing you desire compares with her'. Pro 3:15.
Interestingly, Steve's picture for us starts at '33 minutes' into this message.
I wrote down '33' on a piece of paper when I was listening. Towards the end of the message, you by chance mentioned '33' miners in the documentary He highlighted to you.
He then reminded me of Jeremiah 33:3 which sums up the message to us - 'Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know'.
Not looking to man, or to familiar ways we've leaned on in the past - but to Him.
