Living in the Dark Shadows
By Kathy Mote
Reposting what's wrong with the world and saying how disgusting the world is is not how to be a Light. Standing before
your Father in Heaven to be filled with His delight is how to be a Light.
People Will Walk Away
By Kathy Mote
People will walk away from you when they are unable to embrace the Truth you know and love. That Truth is His heart being revealed. Don't let it
pierce your heart when they revile you for it, for it is Him they don't hear or know.
To ease your heart, to keep you in your place, to right
the wrong they would do to your heart and to ease the pain of standing alone, the Lord said, Love Me more than them. Let Me be the comfort you stand in.
We have been in error for a long time.
We gathered together and taught man's thoughts, that we should to minister to others instead of seeking Him. We looked for the approval of man. That was before we could see and hear Him as we were drawn into His arms. That was before His heart was revealed
in the desert and we came out leaning into His arms.
Today, He is drawing each of us closer to Him, into His presence to hear His voice and
know His heart. As He healed our heart, He will heal every heart. No one can draw them to Him but Him. Knowing Him as we are known by Him is a matter of relationship for every one.
This is a good day to remember not to look to the left or the right, but to obey and agree with Him and not interfere with Him as He deals with them. So many times we get in His way, trying to win souls for Him. But for those who are not hearing
Him yet, if we speak out of turn, we are just noise.
The warfare for each heart is a simple matter for Him. Their heart is something only He
can win. Our place is with Him just as our heart belongs to Him. Let us speak only when we are sent. As we remain before Him, He will secure our heart, but only as we give our heart to Him. I am sent to say this because the Lord said we are not in the day
we can preach them in.
By Kathy Mote
He knows the end from the beginning because He ordered all things and all things are going His way. He is the beginning and the end. Don't look
at all the rebellion to question this, rebellion is what all of creation is being cleansed of.
By Kathy Mote
The Lord said we are getting down to the wire. The only peace is in His presence. Everywhere else there is discontentment.
By Kathy Mote
Some people will love you because of God's presence in your life. Most people will hate you because of Him. It is most
often their own emptiness that causes their hatred of you, and for that, you must forgive them. Your obedience is your devotion to Him, so your own heart would be shattered by un-forgiveness. Love forgives but hate will rob you. As you honor Him, their hate
will take nothing away from you.
You Have To Be Content
By Kathy Mote
You have to be content with the Lord's will for your life. You have to be content with His gifts for you. To want more, to want to be more, to envy someone else's gift
or compete with someone else's life is to give up your place, for in your discontent, you do not accept who you are or what He has given you.
By Kathy Mote
We waited a long time for this.
What Is The First Thing
By Kathy Mote
What is the first thing you do when you face something unpleasant. Something you don't understand. Something that threatens the comfort zone you
are used to being in. Something you perceive as a threat to all you understand. Something that seems like a twist in what you thought His will is.
Do you immediately turn to the Lord with your
heart filled with trust and remain confident in Him to bring about His will? Do you know that nothing comes to you that He does not order in your life to make you who you are? Do you know the devil never ever gets away with anything where the Lord's will for
you is concerned? Do you know, deep in your heart, that nothing gets to you that isn't the Lord's hand? To remain in His presence, you need to know that.
Because you don't see His purpose in
the things you don't like or understand, the concept of Him being Lord of these things doesn't go from your heart into your head. You shouldn't decide for yourself what is good from what is bad based on whether you like it or not. You cannot possibly know
His will based on your own preferences. Your objective is different than His. You desire your will. He is building His character in you to bring about His.
He IS Lord of all and you need to learn that, both in your heart and in your head. Then you can respond to Him. The kind of trust that is required of you to call Him LORD takes total surrender to Him.
The Moment of Truth
By Sandi Holman
As I quietly waited before The LORD tonight as I was going to bed early for a change, I heard The LORD speak to me to continue to
speak and declare Truth that will break the repetitious cycles of control and witchcraft.
He plainly said, “Just like Paul had a Damascus road experience, many will
be stopped in their tracks with a sudden MOMENT OF TRUTH that will bring the ‘Mask’querade to an end.
I have spoken in My Word, that many in the last days would go astray. In the
book of 1 Timothy, Paul warned of the great falling away,” says The LORD, “but I AM come today to release Moments of Truth and I AM calling My Prayer Warriors to tear down
the walls of deception as they sit with Me and let Me do the talking and giving new prayer strategy,” says The Father.
“The BIG cover up is
about to be replaced with the BIG reveal. The change that has been spoken by many of My Prophets will definitely be carried out — and it will affect all and in many different ways.”
refer to this as an AWAKENING — or a wake-up call — but what The LORD is showing me today is truly up-front and very personal, and goes deeper than just waking up.
It is an “I have your
full attention now and I AM is here and My Light is driving out all darkness that has you going in the wrong direction or miss your true purpose in life….” visitation from The Father.
Him saying, “Can you hear Me now? The hour is late, the clock is ticking, and the Game of Monopoly on the last round!”
On the road to Damascus, Paul truly
had a Moment of Truth that changed everything. The bright Light broke through any blindness to Truth he had, and his life was transformed completely.
“As he neared Damascus
on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.” Acts 9:3.
The Light of the
World is saying, “Never forget, I AM The Light of The World and I AM stepping in to shine a Light in the great darkness of deception that is attempting to monopolize the world and be in total control.
I AM working in ways you cannot see, for change is the order of the day. I AM The Deliverer and My History speaks for itself.
I spoke to Moses through a
burning bush. I AM the One who parted the Red Sea and I AM bringing A MOMENT of TRUTH to all the world that will change lives forever.
Just as Salvation wrote a new definition to the lives of
those who call Me Savior, so shall The MOMENT of TRUTH change hearts and move mountains of deception all over the world,” says The Creator.
step into new authoritative positions, while others will be suddenly be transferred to a new place, making Divine Connections — but all will be taken out of their familiar Comfort Zones!
War Zone shall find that there are new Troops being called forward to replace those who have become weary in the battle,” says the Commander in Chief.
speaking to the Prayer Warriors who have been watching and praying. I AM orchestrating what you will remember as a “MOMENT OF TRUTH”.
Many have become impatient with My Timing, and
so many of My Remnant are experiencing great frustration and falling into unbelief and despair, searching for clear direction.
I say your answers are forthcoming, and it will very soon be time to ADVANCE.
I AM announcing to you, just as I delivered Jericho into Joshua’s hands, so shall your Victory come and every wall of captivity shall fall and you shall ADVANCE and move forward at My Command IN MY TIME.
As you recall, I commanded Joshua and his armed warriors to march in silence around the outside of the city for six days and on the 7th day,
watch every wall come tumbling down.
Many walls in the lives of My Warriors will come tumbling down as they also carry this out obediently in silence at My Command today.
I say to you, just as Jericho experienced My Judgment on their wickedness and idolatry, so shall My Judgment come to America and The Nations.
Always let this be a MOMENT OF TRUTH
to you, that I, The LORD your God, go ahead of those who are mine and fight for them, and Victory is promised!
Have I not said, ‘The battle belongs to The LORD’?” says The Captain of The LORD of Hosts.
“So I challenge you today to build yourselves up in your Holy Faith by looking back — just for a MOMENT — and recall times when, just
like Paul, you have experience a defining moment that changed you and your life forever, or took you in the right direction, and you know that I, your LOVING heavenly Father, came on the scene quickly and gave you a MOMENT of TRUTH that turned it around and
changed everything,” says The LORD of all.
“This change shall be all for one and one for all,” says The LORD. “I AM orchestrating the beginning of the end and Freedom shall ring once again.
Many are now in The Valley of Decision and wavering in their Faith,” says The Savior.
“I AM bringing assurance in this hour, that this is a time you shall remember as a true “MOMENT OF TRUTH’ when the WAY leads the WAY, and the TRUTH speaks
great TRUTH that brings LIFE to those who find it.
Just as Joshua experienced the parting the Jordan River and crossing into the Promised Land, so shall it be for My Bride.
Yes, it shall be well remembered when The Trumpets sound out and it is time to give a SHOUT out of Thanksgiving to the One True Promise Keeper!
I have been preparing you with many
important life experiences and during this past year. Many of the older generation have thought they were at the end of their journey — but I have come to say, you have only just begun to carry out your assignment for the End Times!
You have been through many tests, trials, and times you deemed as failures that were only “learning experiences” that will be demonstrations of wisdom in the latter days’, says
“This is a time when I AM using The Middle Generation to glean from the Older and add strength in the battle, as the Younger Generation jumps in with Hearts on Fire, as only young Love can bring.
Let it be known by all who are watching the marching together of the three-fold Cord that the three represent that this was preordained from the foundation of the world.
I leave you with this thought,” says the Creator.
“The three generations coming together as a three-fold Cord gathering The Harvest of Souls is just another
breathtaking MOMENT OF TRUTH,” says the one who is TRUTH.
“It will be a great time of AWAKENING in the Earth and it is just at the door!”

“I will do unusual miracles and release
special signs in the days ahead, for I AM putting Myself on display.
“There is nothing too hard for Me to do. I AM opening up NEW doors for many to go through that are far beyond what you have
asked or ever dreamed of.
“I Am releasing NEW avenues of provision that you never even thought of, for unexpected blessings upon blessings are coming. My revival fires are falling and I will answer by Fire.
“I will baptize with Fire,” says The LORD, “and the fire will spread to the north, the south, the east and the west.
“For pockets of revival will begin in many
places and the fire of My Spirit will not be able to be contained. I have heard My Remnant cry out to Me for an outpouring of My Spirit and I AM answering.
“I have seen the desperation of your hearts and
your earnest plea for a fresh and powerful anointing. I have heard your plea for MORE, and I WILL DO IT,” says The LORD.
“The days of anticipation will be over, for the cloud of My Glory is moving
and I will invade many places with My awesome Presence and Power,” says The LORD.
“Those who have cried out to Me will not be disappointed. The days of deadness and dryness are over. The years
of blight and drought are ended. No more failed harvests.
“I AM restoring the wasted years. I AM taking you out of the wilderness and aimless wanderings and bringing you into the new season of destiny
where I will do the spectacular and move in power and great glory.
“For those who have waited upon Me shall rejoice, for The Harvest will be great and your joy will be full,” says the LORD.

EXHORTATIONS FROM THE FATHER
By Glenn H. Jackson
["Reflections" Of The Father's Heart]
* It takes a lot of "thoughts" NOT brought captive to a revelation of My Word ["wrong thinking" over time] for one of My children to allow
a "spirit of deep fear" [torment, panic, terror etc.] to take hold [remain]in their "mind". As one is found faithful to bring EVERY
throught captive to a revelation of My Word [absolute Truth] on a continual basisTHEN it is certain that the entire hierarchy of evil spirits that had controlled their "thought-life" [thought-patterns] will be expelled[driven out]NEVER to gain entrance again - as they continue to give My Word preeminence, day in and day out.
"torment" - to afflict with great bodily or mental suffering and pain; to worry or annoy excessively; to afflict or harass - as by incessant repetition of vexations or annoyance;
"panic" - a sudden overwhelming fear, with or without cause, that produces hysterical or irrational behavior;
great fear or dread;
"established" - to make secure, stable or permanent; to initiate and cause to last; to clear from doubt;

"Judgment and Restoration Are Occurring Simultaneously"
By Naomi Byers
Several months ago, while I was at church, I saw a vision of angels
with golden wings releasing healing. Then I heard the Lord speak Malachi 4:2 to me. This is a word of hope and encouragement amidst the turmoil and strife we are currently experiencing globally.
Season of Judgment and Restoration
This is a time of both judgment and restoration.
"'For behold, the day is coming, burning
like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,' says the Lord of hosts, 'that will leave them neither root nor branch. But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
with healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves." (Malachi 4:1-2, NKJV)
We're in a season where both judgment and restoration are
occurring simultaneously. I know we are cautious when speaking of judgment in the prophetic movement, so please hear my heart in this. God is still judging in the earth; He does not change; but for those of us who fear God, the Son of Righteousness is arising
with healing in His wings. Now is the time to reach up and receive our healing and breakthrough. This is a season where He is restoring. This 'healing' is all-encompassing. It is sozo—the Greek word for total healing and restoration—spirit, soul,
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." (Psalm 147:3 ESV)
Those of us who humble ourselves, submitting to the healing He
wants to bring, will be healed and restored. This will prepare us for the fire set to move in our land.
Fire on the Land and Fire on the Water
Another prophet friend of mine, Deb Peacock, spoke of a fire on the land and a fire on the water. The fire on the land is burning up everything in its path. It is not leaving "root" or "branch," as Malachi 4:1 states. The fire on the water is riding
on a mighty wave; it is burning in the oil of anointing placed on God's chosen people. It's time to press into our anointing to receive the strength we need for the days ahead.
I'd like to say that the days are getting easier—they are not. The darkness is increasing, but as the darkness grows, the glory of God will continue to rise upon His people, and we will shine more brightly for it (Isaiah
"On Your Left!”
In the MCU (Marvel Comics Universe), Captain America first meets the Falcon by outrunning him with his super strength
in the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier. If you've seen it before, you may recall that he keeps calling out, "On your left!" every time he passes the Falcon. Later on, in the movie Avengers: Endgame, there is a powerful scene where Captain America
is standing on the battlefield, on the brink of defeat. Suddenly, he hears Falcon's voice say, after 5 long years of being missing, "On your left!" Falcon then arrives, unexpectedly, with reinforcements, as Cap's eyes well up with tears. (I love this scene!
It gives me a few tears too.)
When I heard the Lord remind me of this, He then showed me a picture of Elijah outrunning Ahab's chariot in 1 Kings 18. I saw him running on the left-hand side.
I'm not sure if this is what actually happened in the Biblical narrative, but I saw him running on the left, just like Captain America.
"Then the hand of the Lord came upon Elijah; and he girded
up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel." (1 Kings 18:46, NKJV)
In this season, we are being given strength to outrun the chariot of Ahab—the enabling spirit that empowers Jezebel. This
spirit has caused accusations and a large-scale attack on our characters. If you have been experiencing an increase of accusations sent against you, know that the Lord is releasing the strength of Elijah, right now, to outrun that chariot—to outrun those
accusations. It's time to rise above and remember, He is the one fighting for us. It might feel like the 11th hour at present, but His strength is being lavished upon us as we look to Him to be our vindication.
As we keep reading Malachi 4, it speaks of the spirit of Elijah in verse 5:
"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he will turn the hearts
of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse." (Malachi 4:5-6, NKJV)
As I have stated earlier, we are in a
season of both judgment and restoration. We can shy away from language like this; it is understandable with prophetic words of this nature, if they are delivered without any hope and promise. We must understand that, in Christ, we are outside of the judgment
of God, but there is judgment being released, as the cup of wickedness is just about full. It has been filling with the injustice, pride, and iniquity perpetrated in the earth. The tears and groaning of persecuted Christians in the Middle East, India, Pakistan,
Africa, and more have not gone unnoticed or unheard. That cup is almost full. It's about to pour out.
Those who are humble and have submitted themselves to God will be empowered with the spirit
of Elijah. They will have the strength to outrun that chariot, in the mighty name of Jesus! They will outrun the narrative, outrun the lies, outrun the manipulation, and outrun the complacency. They will be empowered to turn the hearts of the children back
to the fathers, and the hearts of the fathers back to the children. As the Church in community, we need to engage with this, modeling true masculine leadership.
Fatherlessness is the greatest
cause of these culture wars we are experiencing. We have lost our identity, and as a result, we try to find it in our sexuality, gender, race, social status—the list goes on. As the Church, our identity is in Christ. It is time we modeled this to a hurt
and broken world.
As I have been praying through this word, I keep hearing the significance of the 'left.' The
Holy Spirit led me to this passage in Proverbs, which speaks of wisdom:
"Length of days is in her right hand, in her left hand riches and honor." (Proverbs 3:16, NKJV)
The Lord is saying that there has been an assignment on Believers' honor and their resources. For those individuals who have been experiencing significant accusations, the Lord has seen you hold your peace. You have taken it to Him, allowing Him
to be your vindicator. You have left it to God.
"Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, 'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, says the Lord.'" (Romans
For those who have left it to God, He is restoring a double portion of honor to you in this season, in the name of Jesus! He is also restoring riches and resources. Provision has been held up for many of
us, because of the accusations that have come against us. Malachi 4:2 promises us that we can be fattened, stall-fed calves as we look to Him, the Son of Righteousness.
prophesy, right now, that as we pick up the sword, striking left against the spirit that has stolen from us, and brought dishonor and accusation, our resources will be released, in the mighty name of Jesus!
"...Set your blade! Thrust left—Wherever your edge is ordered!" (Ezekiel 21:16, NKJV)
Our sword edge, the sword of the Spirit, is currently ordered to strike left. Let's take
up our authority and come against the assignment which has attacked our resources, honor, and character. In the strength of the Holy Spirit, we are going to run with the spirit and strength of Elijah to overcome Ahab, in the name of Jesus.
When Elijah wanted to run toward Jezreel, he girded up his loins—he wrapped up his robes—in preparation to run (1 Kings 18:46). The Lord is telling us in this season to prepare ourselves by girding up the loins of
"Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ". (1 Peter 1:13, NKJV)
We need to receive His strength and gird up the loins of our minds, so that we can run with strength in our God-given assignments this season.
Father, in the name of Jesus, we come to You with these accusations, which have come against our character and our name. We lay them all before You. We release forgiveness over anyone who has misunderstood or misrepresented us.
We forgive them, in the name of Jesus, and release them into the power of our forgiveness. Jesus, You have given us the power to cancel debts; we decree them canceled in Jesus' name.
You are our vindicator. We ask You to bring double recompense and honor for where there has been shame and dishonor, in the mighty name of Jesus. Lord, we take authority over the Amalekite spirit of robbery which has come to steal our resources. In the name
of Jesus, we place the Blood of Christ between ourselves and this spirit, canceling its assignment against our resources, our families, our workplaces, our churches, and our ministries. We say, "This far and NO further! Enough is ENOUGH, in the name of Jesus!
Get your hands off our God-given resources, you spirit of robbery. The Lord rebuke you, in Jesus' name!”
We receive supernatural restoration right now, in the name of Jesus. We pick up our swords and strike to the left. We cancel, cut, and sever any ties restricting our resources and coming against the honor You have bestowed upon
us. We humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God. We resist the devil, and he SHALL flee from us. We resist the spirits of Ahab, Jezebel, Amalek, and intimidation. We decree that we are submitted to God alone. Hallelujah!
By faith, we press into Your restoration and healing in this season. Heal our hearts, Lord! Restore what has been stolen, in Jesus' mighty name. We commit ourselves to waiting on You. Amen.

MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that
is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
[part 1 of 2]
____The sin consciousness can be traced the reason for
practically every spiritual failure. It destroys faith. It destroys the initiative in the heart. It gives to man an inferiority complex. He is afraid of God. He is afraid of himself. He is ever searching to find someone that can pray the prayer of faith for
him. He has no sense of his own legal right to stand in the Father's presence without condemnation.
____The inferiority complex that is bred of Sin Consciousness is
faced everywhere in the church. It has been said to me many times, "If I could get rid of this Sin Consciousness, I'd get my healing. I'd be a power for God, but I can't get rid of it." Has God provided a Redemption that cures this sin disease? I am sure He
has. If He hasn't planned to take it out of man during his earth walk, man can never stand right before God because Redemption works only in this age.
____God has made
provision to make a New Creation. He has planned to impart His own nature to him-taking out the old sin nature and replacing it with His own nature. This will destroy Sin Consciousness. Few theologians have recognized the fact that Sin Consciousness is the
parent of practically all human religions. Man has sought to heal this awful disease. The sense of unworthiness destroys faith, robs us of our peace of mind, makes ineffectual the most earnest and zealous prayer life.
____It robs us of all fellowship and communion with the Father. Our theologians since Luther have never found a cure for this condition. The Holiness people have attempted bravely to meet this issue, but
so far they have never been able to permanently cure a patient.
____Man's cure has been repentance of sins, sorrow for sins, and deep agony in prayer.
____Others have tried to quiet their consciences by going to church, doing penance, fasting, giving money, saying prayers, doing good deeds, giving up pleasures, confessing their
sins, fighting bad habits, putting themselves under discipline of self-denial and self-abasement, by neglecting the body. Some have even gone so far as to lacerate their bodies. Others have taken long pilgrimages. All these methods have been tried. Every earnest
spirit has attempted some of them.
A new movement has just arisen in which men and women are finding temporary relief in confessing their sins to one another. Confessing sins may bring temporary
relief from the pressure that is upon them, but no works of any kind whether they be works of self-abnegation, repentance, penance, saying of prayers, or self-denial can ever rid the heart of Sin Consciousness.
"The Mercy and Vengeance of God"
By Francis Frangipane
The Redemptive Mercy of God
Even in the day of His wrath, the hand of God is ever guided by His redemptive mercy. What I mean is that many who have failed the Lord during these past
years are, even now, discovering that Christ has come to free them from the burden of defeat and condemnation.
Indeed, when Jesus began His ministry, He opened the book of the prophet Isaiah
to where the nature of His mission was described:
"'The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.’
"Then He closed the book,
and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, 'Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.'" (Luke 4:18-21, NKJV)
is striking here to me is that Jesus ended this prophecy about Himself in the middle of a sentence. The second half of Isaiah's promise continues. Listen as it describes the complete purpose of God in Christ. It reads, "...and the day of vengeance of our God..."
(Isaiah 61:2, NKJV).
The Vengeance of God
I love the balance of God: the
Lord has a "YEAR" of favor for us, but only a "DAY" of vengeance. Even so, when we think of vengeance, our imaginations often rush ahead to fearsome events, terror and calamities. We hope to be nowhere near when God's judgments fall.
Yet one primary manifestation of God's wrath is that He comes against those spiritual powers that have been oppressing and laying siege against His people. What we need to understand is that God's wrath upon His enemies manifests
as deliverance and freedom for His people! Read again the outcome of "the day of vengeance of our God”:
"...to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them
beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified." (Isaiah 61:2-3, NKJV)
One very significant aspect of God's wrath is that He comes to destroy that which has been destroying us! Listen to His promise: "But thus says the Lord: 'Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the
terrible be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children'" (Isaiah 49:25, NKJV).
Many Christians suffer with demonic attacks and weariness, yet
the promise of God to us is that He will contend with the spirits that contend with us – demons that rob people of joy, strength and health. Against these the Lord has a day of reckoning and vengeance.
From our perspective, God's judgment upon sin is our freedom from oppression! Our Lord brings us comfort instead of mourning, beauty instead of ashes and a mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.
The Lord desires to liberate us, but not so we can relax under our fig tree! God frees us so we can free others. He says, "And they shall rebuild the
old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations" (Isaiah 61:4, NKJV).
Many former devastations shall be raised
up to serve God in gladness at the end of the age! Many sinners who have wept for freedom in their hearts will pass through the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, and as new creatures in Christ, they will be used mightily in the days ahead. Indeed, many
who are convinced the Lord has rejected them will find God's grace extended powerfully toward their hearts. The first evil which Christ will judge and remove is the burden of hopelessness.
to each of us today, the Lord still comes "...to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound" (Isaiah 61:1, NKJV).

Word Over You Is Not A “Pandemic”
By Russ Walden
The Father says today, My word over you is not a “pandemic.” You are not a
child of the pandemic, you are a creature of My realm, My domain, and My kingdom. There is no COVID in the kingdom, says God. Say it. Speak it out loud and take authority with the words of your mouth. This is not a time to flee but I time to stand. This is
the hour that I am the fourth man in your fire, bringing you out without even the faintest taint of smoke on your garments.
You are not “burned.”
You are not burned out and you will not be burned up. You are a brand plucked from the burning and set alight with My glory. Rejoice! Praise, dance and be jubilant for you are coming to new ground and new territory this day.
My light is guiding, and My light is shining in the dark places. What you cannot see or understand I am fully aware of, so keep your hand in My hand. I will take you from the place of peril into the manifestation of My promise.
My presence is with you. My presence comes up behind you, walks beside you, and opens the way before you. You will not falter. You will not fail. Move forward and be confidently bold for you will never be put to shame.

*____I have EVERYTHING under My control - and EVERYTHING is "right on schedule" as far as My glorious plan for this final hour goes. Your task, then, is to
simply obey [believe] and rejoice [praise] - at all times! This will allow Me to unfold My Plan perfectly
in this most glorious hour - with pin-point accuracy on ALL fronts.
____ ...."Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain
thing? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, 'Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!' He who sits in the heavens laughs,
the Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury, saying, 'But as for Me, I have installed My King Upon Zion, My holy mountain'".... Psalms 2:1-6 NASB
...."Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who
lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world".... 1 John 4:4 The Amplified Translation
____What the Father and Jesus have planned [through a holy people] in this most glorious hour is going to "blindside" the Enemy and devastate him at every turn - and, because of these things, MANY captives will be set completely free to pursue their
precious destiny, in Christ.
...."Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it, and a book
of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. 'They will be Mine, says the LORD of hosts, on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him. So you will
again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.
For behold, the
day is coming, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who fear My name, the sun
of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall. You will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day which I am preparing', says the LORD of hosts"....
Malachi 3:16-4:3 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
to tackle, hit, or attack (an opponent) from the blind side; to attack critically where a person [in this case, Satan and his forces] is vulnerable[unawares];
____Father, we thank You and praise You that by Your great and awesome power You have raised up a holy people in this final hour who will continually
devastate the Enemy and his forces at EVERY turn. We praise You that, even now, there is GREAT confusion in the ranks of the Enemy, and that he is being totally "blindsided" where his formerly "hidden" schemes are concerned. We declare all of these things
DONE - and we give You ALL glory, praise and honour, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
____...."each man's work will become evident; for the day will show it because
it is [to be] revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's work".... 1 Corinthians 3:13 NASB
nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor [anything] secret that will not be known and come to light. So take care how you listen; for whoever has, to him [more] shall be given; and whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has shall be taken
away from him".... Luke 8:17-18 NASB
The Word helps in casting down vain imaginations that exhalt itself above the knowledge of the Lord. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought
