I Hear Your Voice!

By June Sheltrown Reinke



“Fervent payer is not volume,” says the LORD, “It is the intensity of your heart.”


“I record every time you THINK of Me, and those thoughts that are intense toward me are fervent!


“I see your earnest expectation, your unfeigned faith and trust in Me, and I AM pleased.  For when you seek Me with all your heart, and your prayers come up before Me from the depths of your soul, I take notice of them!  They will enter into My Throne Room as a sweet aroma,” says The LORD.


“You will find Me when you seek Me with all your heart,” says the LORD.


“It is not a game of hide and seek, for I AM NOT HIDING from you.  You will find Me and have My favor rest upon you.  For I AM calling you into intimacy with Me.


“I desire you to come and fellowship and commune with Me, so how could I be difficult to find, when I long for you?


“Do not think that your payers are lost in the shuffle of endless requests, for I hear perfectly, and My ears are never full.  Your voice is heard.  Your thoughts are recorded.


“The intent of your heart is seen and known by Me.  I will give you ON SPOT attention and Am mindful of your needs, and will hear and answer your prayers, and you mix them with faith and trust in Me as the LORD of your life,” says The LORD.

God’s Timing is Perfect!



I hear The Spirit say, “Tell My Beloved to stop always being in such a hurry and to allow Me to do what I need to do behind the scenes, so that when the time is right, I can release and reveal an even greater level of My Glory”


God’s timing is perfect.

Assigned and Commissioned for Greater Exploits!


I Prophesy, “Your waiting will not have been in vain!”


Hear the Word of The LORD,  “The boards have been up, for I have concealed construction for a season.


Even in the midst of diversions and detours, My invisible hand has been at work behind the scenes.  


Yes!  In all your circumstances and situations I have been moving and shifting,” says God.


“Beloved now trust Me!  These are the hidden works of My Deliverance.


I AM building, preparing and making a way for things to come together in your favor and for the timely fulfillment of My Plans, Purposes and Promises in your life”.


Friends, in this very hour, I see the loving hand of our Heavenly Father arranging and rearranging, directing and redirecting your every step.


He is strategically organizing and reordering every aspect of your life, even down to the very smallest of detail in this hour and season.


Papa says, “I AM not vague or haphazard.  I AM exact, precise and detailed in every design.


I AM not in a hurry.  In My Kingdom, time has no restraint or restriction.  I AM the perfecter of all things.  Time is in My Hand,” says God.


“I do not make mistakes!  I AM not the author of confusion and chaos, I AM peaceful, full of wisdom and mercy.  I AM without partiality or hypocrisy.


Now be still; trust Me in the waiting, for My perfect plans for your life are yet to be fully realized or fully completed.”


Listen, in this season , I encourage you to deal seriously and soberly and swiftly with disappointments and discouragements.


Do not let satan get a foothold.  Guard your heart from unbelief and double-mindedness, for surely these things will disqualify you from fully walking in the fullness of your destiny in Christ.


Hey!  It is time to stir up a fresh and greater expectation, for He is the God of the suddenlies and the God of the impossible.


I believe as you do this, you will see The Father revealing what He has been healing and unveiling, what He has been so busy creating, deep down within you.


Decree with me;  In Christ I have the victory, therefore nothing that has been lost or stolen cannot be fully healed, restored and redeemed!


I hear Him say, “I AM the God of outrageous extravagance and generosity.  Watch!  For I will do exceedingly, abundantly and above all that you could ask for or even imagine.


My beloved, eyes that see are rare, but eyes that look are common.  So come up higher and see!” says God.


“For the launching pad of greater release is now before you.  Watch!  As you are catapulted into new spheres of influence, for My Hand is promoting you, up-scaling and upgrading you, for I have equipped and empowered you for even greater impact in the earth.


I have assigned and commissioned you for greater exploits and I have promised you even greater victories in the days ahead,” says God.


I prophecy, in this season you are becoming more radiant with the brilliance of His Glory.  You have been called and anointed to be strong and courageous, moving and advancing into the place of your divine destiny.


Beloved!  Arise!  Shine!




Blessings to you all.

Those who are not with you anymore, are not your concern.

As the enemy will continue to roar sounds of fear and discouragement, you will no longer be tossed around into a state of bewilderment and doubt.  See yourself rising out the darkness and entering into marvelous light!


The beauty of The LORD shines on you and His light shines through, leading lost ones to be with Papa God!


It was a personal battle the enemy waged against you, but The LORD YHWH has proven you to be a fierce warrior that has been trained and is now ready for battle!


Your mind is sound, your heart tender and you now exude POWER The LORD you GOD!


You have fought with the spirit of fear and have won!


Your victory is now very apparent in the month of June and it will be very noticeable by others as The LORD creates new opportunities for you to share your testimony.


Prodigals will hear you and understand immediately where they have been deceived.


Your enemies will pull up a chair right alongside of you and witness the goodness of The LORD in the land of the living and be saved from darkness.


You will lay hands in the sick and they will recover!


The thorn in your flesh isn’t even noticeable by you anymore because the DUNAMIS POWER of God is being revealed in HIS sons and daughters!


Your praise is becoming louder and your boldness is becoming so much stronger that many for miles will come to experience a fresh touch from the Father in their minds!

Doors that were slammed in your face have pointed you into the direction of your destiny!


And places that refused to acknowledge your value, have been mandated by GOD to give back what was stolen from you!


Your name is being restored as The LORD is shutting the mouth of the accuser.


Scribes will now write, prophets will Prophesy!  Creativity has been released!  Lyrics, music, paintings and fresh new business ideas!


It is restoration time!

I AM a Consuming Fire and a Refiner!

By Pastor Debra Lowe



“I AM coming as a great light and a fresh fire flowing as a fountain to all who have kept their flames lit.


You are about to experience walking up and down in My Name as you recover things that were stolen or that slipped by you at this past season.


You will walk boldly as you hold the fire that burns as it goes.  This fire will begin to burn away the forests that have kept you from seeing clearly.


Wake up, wake up, for I AM surrounding you with fire and it will be for glory in your midst.


I AM a consuming fire and a Refiner.  You will begin to rejoice at all times as one who is intoxicated with new wine.


Yes, I have squeezed forth new wine from the grapes that have been produced during this last season of trouble.  A change must now come, one that is fueled by the fire that I have ignited in you.


It must be to pray for all that do not know Me or obey Me.  There is a fire igniting for them as well, but not for purification.  There are dual purposes going on at all times.


This same fire will purge some while destroying others.  All who do not love Me will begin to feel this heat turning up on them.


It is time now for you to be about the Kingdom’s business.  Snatching souls from the fires that they have set by rejecting Me.


Harvest time has come near in My own field.  There is a dividing line to separate between the tares and the wheat and the sheep and the goats that have grown and grazed together.


Those who are genuine must be holy still.  You must keep guard and stay in the love of your God, expecting and waiting patiently for the mercy for eternal life.


Do not grow weary in doing right, for your season of recompense is upon you.  I will make a known difference between who is Mine and those who are not.


Just as the world will experience signs and wonders in the sky and upon the earth, they will experience a new level of signs and wonders being exhibited from My children.


We are about to do awe inspiring acts, they will know that you are not of this world!


“But you, beloved, build yourselves up on [the foundation of] your most holy faith [continually progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], pray in the Holy Spirit, and keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously and looking forward to the mercy of our LORD Jesus Christ [which will bring you] to eternal life.  And have mercy on some, who are doubting; save others, snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy but with fear, loathing even the clothing spotted and polluted by their shameless immoral freedom,”   Jude 20-23.


“But while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed [weeds [resembling wheat] among the wheat, and went away.  So when the plants sprouted and formed grain, the weeds appeared also.  The servants of the owner came to him and said, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field?  Then how does it have weeds in it?’  He replied to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’  The servants asked him, ‘Then do you want us to go and pull them out?’  But he said, ‘No; because as you pull out the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them.  Let them grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, “First gather the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; but gather the wheat into my barn,”   Matthew 13:25-30.


“May our God come and not keep silent; Fire devours before Him, And around Him a mighty tempest rages,”   Psalm 50:3.

The LORD said, “Enough is Enough!”

By Prophet Ken Dewey



The hate and evil plans to take down American President Donald J. Trump is moved into full stream and has brought them to the end of the testing time of The LORD.


The LORD will move His mighty hand over America shortly…  and the enemies will scatter…


I hear The LORD say:


“Enough is enough, and now I will move to shake them, for now I will discomfort them and they will run over themselves in desperation to escape, but there will be no escape, for I AM standing in the way.


America is in my plans and I AM not through with America yet, and President Donald Trump is My man in the White House to do what I want done!


They are trying now to force America into bondage even further, and are sending their army to destroy.


America is standing at the crossing of the waters. [Red Sea], and when the children of Israel stood there, I delivered them through the waters, and the evil army perished in the water!


Enough is enough!  Now I move to stop them short and they will not succeed!”

I have posted this today as He spoke it right here.  He said take to Facebook and write this.  I obeyed The LORD.


My observation is that The LORD is angry and will move suddenly as they strike out to destroy…. Watch the news!

The light will shine in His glory… In the desert.

Tell His Story

By Greg Laurie








For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake.

—2 Corinthians 4:5


Have you ever thought, “If I could do a miracle, I know my friends would believe”? Maybe you imagine having them over for a barbecue. As you throw the meat on the grill, you say, “Check this out. . . . Lord, let fire come down from Heaven and consume these patties!” Whoosh! Fire comes down, and everyone believes.


Do you think that would really happen? Come on. Miracles won’t bring people to faith. Jesus said this: “A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah” (Matthew 16:4).


This statement was made in response to a challenge by the Pharisees who wanted Jesus to show them a miracle. But Jesus said, in effect, “I’m not going to give you a sign. You’ve seen plenty of signs.” Loose paraphrase: “Here’s the sign that I’m giving you. You know that guy Jonah who was in the fish’s belly? I’m going to die. I’m going to rise again from the dead. That is My sign to you.”


We won’t reach a lost world by miracles. The way we primarily will reach a lost world is through the message of the gospel that Jesus died on the cross, rose from the dead, and will come into their lives if they will put their faith in Him.


So when you are sharing the gospel, tell the story of Jesus. That is the bottom line. There’s power in that story and in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That is why Paul said, “For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Corinthians 2:2).


When you tell your story, it is always a bridge to His story—the greatest story that has ever been told.

By Yolanda Ballard




I escaped my whole adolescence doing drugs starting with carbona spot remover, alcohol, marijuana, street drugs, etc. The Lord preserved me that I never got into any addicting drugs. In the natural I shouldn't even have any brain cells because of all the overdoses and alcohol poisoning, etc.




I have always been nervous around people. I started taking prescription drugs to try to calm down but it just made me worse. Took drugs all the way through high school and my first two marriages. I ended up with so much guilt that I went into severe depression. The first church I ever went to was a cult where the pastor was having sex during counseling with all the women. The Lord preserved me through that.




I was a child with special needs and had a baby that was born with brain damage. I was not in any shape to care for a child that took special care. He had grand mall seizures and I already had severe fear of everything. I ended up being isolated for most of Levi's life, that is 45 years. My chief joy is when I met Jesus and He filled me with His spirit, delivered me of depression, and turned my life around. I spent much time quiet with Him writing and what kept my spirit lifted was when He took me by His side and led me in dance. I love to worship Him that is what I live for!




To add to what contributed to the drug abuse was living with a mother who had severe mental and emotional problems and she took it all out upon me. You could say I lived The Exorcist movie. She was possessed. At the time I did not know the Lord. All I knew was the evil I experienced in my home with my mother. I never let go of God's faithfulness to save my parents. They both died in the Lord!




I wonder why I feel uncomfortable around people to this day but I know God can heal and restore. He promises us a hope and a future and that is what I hold on to. He is my only hope! He kept me, sustained me through the hardest of times when in the natural I was so close to a complete nervous breakdown. I still get very discouraged. It is a constant battle to keep the joy and peace.




It is like being on a vacation when I experience His presence! The Lord began a good and perfect work in me, and He is faithful to complete it. This is just a portion of my story. I definitely could write a book of all God preserved me through. I am amazed when I look back and see another person back in those days. The Lord delivered me of such an unholy lifestyle searching for love in the wrong places!

When Troublesome People In Your Life Can’t Get Your Attention

By Russ Walden




 The Father says today, when troublesome people in your life can't get your attention, they will resort to threats and extortion to get their way. Know that He that sits in the heavens shall laugh and have them in derision. That not only applies to Me, but it also applies to you for you are seated at My right hand far above all principalities and powers. Who are these strutting little narcissists who think everything is about them and all your attention should only be fixed upon them? They will experience the woodshed of God. Not because I don't love them, says the Father, but because I do. Keep pressing into the assignment at hand and don't give them a second thought.


I have your back, says God. The breath your enemy draws to criticize is under My control. I will adjudicate your life under My scrutiny and not men's opinions. Remember that the truth always outlives the lie, and at the end of the matter, you will come forth unfettered and unhindered. All flesh is as grass, says the Father, and all of this is simply the wood, hay, and stubble - the chaff around you being blown away by My winds to make way for the complete fulfillment of all that I have promised you, My beloved.

 "Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]


         ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 






Words of prophecy:         


*       If Joseph had not continued to exercise faith in spite of the hopeless circumstances that he faced while held captive in prison [and through the false accusations that led to his imprisonment] he would have died there and, thus, fallen short of his destiny. In just the same way, my "elect" [those whose hearts are wholly given to Me] must be found exercising an absolute faith in this hour. They must be found "holding fast the vision" [revelation] [Habakkuk 2:2-4] through a perfect love and patience. For truly I say to you, the vision [My perfect plan] will not tarry nor will it disappoint as it moves rapidly towards it perfect fulfillment in the lives of My faithful ones in this most glorious hour. Truly I say to you, faith and patience will SURELY inherit the fullness of the promise[s], and bear maximum fruit for the Church and the Kingdom from now until the end of the age - and on into Eternity.


        ...."He sent a man before them, Joseph, who was sold as a slave. They afflicted his feet with fetters, he himself was laid in irons; Until the time that his word [destiny] came to pass, the word [vision] of the LORD tested him. The king sent and released him, the ruler of peoples, and set him free. He made him lord of his house and ruler over all his possessions".... Psalms 105:17-21 NASB


        The story of Joseph again makes very clear what the Father is saying to those who truly love Him in this most critical hour. We are called to an ABSOLUTE faith and trust in Him [and all that He has revealed to our hearts] - this absolute faith and trust being the catalyst for our entrance into [unfolding of] the fullness of our precious destiny and Kingdom-position, in Christ.


        Indeed, Moses, Mary, Joseph, Abraham, David - and all of the precious saints of the past [and present] were called to faith [patience], love and obedience. It is written in Deuteronomy 28 that obedience brings divine blessing [empowerment] and protection, while disobedience releases the curse. We know that we have been redeemed from the curse in Christ [Galatians 3:13] BUT we still need to continually access the Grace of God [which is summed up entirely in Jesus Christ - Who is the Word of God] by faith [total trust and dependence upon Him] that we might be found appropriating the "fullness" of our salvation [Covenant]- day in and day out. For what the Father has provided through Grace MUST be accessed [received, harvested] by [through] faith.


        ...."Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God".... Romans 5:1-2 KJV


        ...."Who is the man who fears [reverences] the LORD? He will instruct him in the way he should choose. His soul will abide in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land. The secret of the LORD is for those who fear [reverence] Him, and He will make them know His covenant".... Psalms 25:12-14 NASB


Prayer of Proclamation:


        Father, we thank You and praise You for Your Grace. We thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who are found continually exercising a steadfast faith and trust in You that we might be found appropriating ALL that is ours in Christ through the continual accessing of Your Grace [divine empowerment]. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

I know you get in a hurry, but I need you to take your time and be patient.  You will get to your due season quickly enough.  Remember that there are things to learn and discover on your journey that will be missed if you rush.  Relax and take time to enjoy the moment, says The LORD.


Galatians 6:9  “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”





Watch for the tendency to take on more than you can effectively handle.  You cannot do everything at once.  Narrow your focus and just do the next thing.  Otherwise you will get scattered and overwhelmed.  You can only do one step at a time and one day at a time as you move through what is required of you, says The LORD.  Stay calm and maintain internal peace.


Philippians 4:7  “and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”






I will show you the way when there seems to be no way.  There are avenues you can take that you do not know about and have not yet considered.  You just need to trust that you are precious to Me, and I will direct and protect you, says The LORD.  Do not be afraid.  Fear brings torment and will override your faith.


1 John 4:18  “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”

God Gives the Increase!

By Stephen Hanson



One Plants, Another One Waters, ….. but God Gives the Increase


“I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.  So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.  Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour,”   1 Corinthians 3:6-8.


We just planted several flowers in a couple of large areas here where we live in this senior community.


I spent a lot of time pulling weeds and getting the ground ready.


Carol my wife, had purchased several varieties of flowers for the areas and had them ready to plant when everything was cultivated.


It was quite interesting, as there were four women along with myself doing all of this.  I knew that I had to wait as the general consensus took time to decide where each plant was to be placed into the ground.


But finally after aching backs, dirty fingernails and hands, the job was done.  The ground had to be dug and hoed so that it would be fertile so that the soil would receive the plants.


Of course we also have as an example how the Word of God must be received into our hearts.


The soil must be ready and worked so that those seeds and plants will have fertile ground in which to grow.


But someone first needs to work that soil so that it is ready.  Each of us has their own heart soil because of various circumstances and events that have happened in our lives.


Flowers and plants may well be planted in good nurturing soil and yet if they don’t receive the needed water every day as needed, then they will eventually wither and dry up.


In the same way, so are we with the Word of God and the Spirit.  Without these ingredients our spiritual state then can easily dry up and cause us to wither.





Stephen Hanson
