Loose Yourself From the Bondage!

You are the image of Me. I AM in thee and nothing shall prevail against thee!

When I formed thee, I made thee perfect and good.
made thee to conquer and not to fail.
I took My time and put thee together and put My breath, My Spirit in thee that thou mayest be like Me.

I shall give thee shade! I shall be always around and before and behind thee, A Mighty Warrior.

HE is Separating the Wheat From the Tares!
Pastor Debra Lowe
“I AM separating the wheat from the tare and those who stand with Me and remain faithful to My Word.
There will be such an anointing
upon those who stand. Fruit shall abound in their households, more and better fruit in their hearts, in their minds, and evident in their lives.
Because they are trees planted by the rivers of living
water, they receive the water of the Word easier. They continue to stay hungry and thirsty, many shall come to see what is keeping them fed.
They shall rest and come to know Me as The LORD who sees
and provides, because they have chosen the good thing, sitting at My feet.
They stand tall knowing that I The LORD their God have made promises to them and I will not and I cannot lie, and My answer to
you is yes and amen.
You have asked me once and again, “God what are you doing?” I AM telling you, I AM making you more like Me.
are getting to know Me as a good Father, who is trustworthy. It is going beyond hearsay from others, it has become more intimate knowledge.
You see that it goes beyond the momentary and temporary
things, you are seeing from the eyes of an eternal being.
You will always be supplied with plenty, you shall have enough to give without fear of want, you will step over easily into My overflow.
You will see that it is far more than money, but prosperity for the whole of your living. I AM faithful to bless those who are faithful with all that they are stewards over, spirit, soul, and body.
Faithful men abound with blessings, so get ready for harvest in every area. Whatever is empty, whatever has been void I have set the stage to cause you to abound with blessings.
You thought it was the enemy trying to steal from you, but I was emptying those troughs, emptying those fields, I was emptying those places so that I could place My seed that always produces after its kind.
I had to rid My garden of the weeds that was keeping the fruit from reaching its full maturity. I know what is good for you, I AM a great father, provider, counselor, friend, one who walks beside you.
I AM taking good care of you. I will see to you, and everything that concerns you,” says The LORD.
“Know that those things that have been burned away they were not like Me,
but know that I will replenish your ground with the good, the righteous, and the holy, and you shall be stronger in Me.”
“The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord,
endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands,” Psalm 138:8.
“A faithful (right-minded) man will abound with blessings, but he who hurries to be rich will not go unpunished,”
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers,” 3 John 1:2.
Time for Respite!
Deborah Waldron Fry
I see the Bride of Christ. And all around her are burning the fires of adversity.
But though these demonic fires rage, she
is in a beautiful walled Garden where Living Waters are flowing.
The Fourth Man in the fire has become her Rufuge, her Fortress, her Place of Rest even in the midst of her enemies. And her Beloved
is singing over her Songs of Deliverance.
I heard “Time for RESPITE.”
“Beloved. I know you have been through the fires and back.
The enemy rages against My Anointed as he raged against Me, seeking to do you harm.
He sees that you are Mine. But do not be afraid of him, My Child. I AM the Fourth Man in the fire.
I AM your Refuge and Strength, your very present Help in trouble.
Therefore, do not fear, though the earth be removed and the mountains shake and are carried into the sea; when you walk through the fire,
you shall not be burned.
The fires of adversity shall not kindle upon you. The smell of smoke shall not even be upon you, for I AM in your midst.
have delivered you from the kingdom of darkness and into My marvelous Light. You have come into My Garden of Spices flowing with Living Waters, the River of God.
Rest, My Love while I sing Songs
of deliverance over you. It is time to BREATHE again.”
RESPITE: Hebrew: Revachah Strongs: 7310 relief, BREATHING, respite. A rest, reprieve, a break. To relieve by a
pause or interval of rest.
“If our God Whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, He will deliver us out of your hand, O king,” Daniel 3:16.
“He answered and said, “Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God,” Daniel 3:25.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters
thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she
shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: He uttered his voice, the earth melted. The Lord of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah,” Psalm
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall
the flame kindle upon thee,” Isaiah 43:2.
“You are a garden spring, a well of flowing water streaming down from Lebanon. Awaken, O north wind, and come, O south wind. Breathe
on my garden, and spread the fragrance of its spices. Let my Beloved come into His garden and taste its choicest fruits,” Song of Solomon 4:15-16.

“Nothing is fixed. Nothing has moved and nothing has happened. You cannot, but I can,” says The LORD.

Arise, Sit Down! Time to Minister From the Glory!
By Jo Ellen Stevens
I heard this last night while in worship from The LORD.
“You have acclimated to
The Glory on the ground level in your earth suit.
You have learned to maneuver in it to minister to the people.
It is now time to come up higher into
My Presence and know that you are seated with Me in heavenly places.
As you are seated on The Mercy Seat, you will experience a whole new weight of Glory that as you acclimate to it. You will begin
to rule and reign from a new position!
You will be ministering from My Rest and you will then be ministering ‘FROM’ the Glory!”
yourself from the dust, arise; Sit down…” Isaiah 52:2.
“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also
ceased from his works as God did from His,” Hebrews 4:9-10.

Obedience Is Best
By Greg Laurie
What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings
and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.
—1 Samuel 15:22
When God told King Saul to completely
destroy the Amalekites, including King Agag, Saul didn’t do it. Later, in the book of Esther, we find Mordecai dealing with the wicked Haman, a descendant of King Agag.
Saul thought that because he had plundered the Amalekites’
livestock to sacrifice to the Lord, everything would be okay. But the prophet Samuel told him, “What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission
is better than offering the fat of rams” (1 Samuel 15:22 NLT).
God told Saul to do something, and he didn’t do it. Sometimes the Lord will speak to our hearts and tell us to give up something that is taking over our lives,
something we regard as an innocent pleasure that is becoming something of an addiction. It could be alcohol or some other thing. But that thing or that pursuit is becoming more important to us than God.
Maybe God is telling you to break
off a relationship with someone who is pulling you down spiritually, someone who, whenever you’re around them, just pulls you down. Or worse yet, you’re the one who’s pulling someone else down.
Maybe the Lord is speaking
to your heart and telling you to take a bold step of faith and do something you’ve never done, something way out of your comfort zone, like starting a Bible study at work or engaging someone with the gospel.
Whatever it may be, if
the Lord tells you to do it, then do it. See what God will do. But don’t think that going to church or putting a little more in the offering will take the place of what God really wants from you, which is your obedience.
"90 Days of
Revival Worship - A Global Invitation to Rise Up"
By Torrey Marcel Harper
Prophetic word released on August 13, 2019:
Recently as I was in worship, the Lord began to highlight to me the season we're currently embarking upon with the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock here in America.
As I continued to worship I
heard the Lord say, "I am releasing a massive revival within the global worship movement of our time. Yes, I am hitting the reset button on worship as we've known it. I'm releasing a fresh wave of My Spirit on the global worship movement in ways you've never
seen before. I'm ushering this generation into a new era where holy worship unto Me will be restored and raised up all throughout the earth.
"There are new sounds and new expressions of worship that will
break out in every place of the earth. Over the next 90 days, I am inviting My Bride into a new place of worship, a new place of intimacy, a new place of glory. Yes," the Lord said, "we're coming into days of ascension."
This is where we will literally see people begin to fix their gaze on the Lord. God is inviting His people to ascend the mountain of the Lord.
An Invitation to Ascend His Mountain
I saw God inviting people, through the vehicle of worship, to the high places over cities, over regions, over nations. Yes, even over various spheres of society. The Lord says that the next 90 days are very crucial
for people to turn their hearts and fix their eyes on the Lord. This worship revival that is breaking forth in the earth right now will cause a ripple effect within nations. It's coming to disrupt chaos and confusion. It's coming to dismantle the powers of
darkness through the sound of laid-down worship.
It's time for the lovers of God, those who are passionate, to rise up. There's a release of new songs that will be born out of the chambers of intimacy.
It's an hour where new songs and music will be released. Yes, it's the sound of vertical worship. It's the beautiful sound upon the beautiful mountain of the Lord. The Lord says, "We will ascend Mount Zion. I'm taking My global Bride to new heights and new
realms in Me."
Worship in Unconventional Locations
I began to see, in the spirit, people worshiping outside in the most unconventional locations.
I saw people worshiping in large stadiums and being consumed by the weighty presence of God and the sound of pure worship. I hear the Lord saying: "Movement of worship will not be confined to the four walls." I saw worshipers being raised up on the various
mountains of influence, specifically in education.
The Lord says, "I'm gonna cause the secret place to be revealed in public places, where worship will begin to infiltrate schools across the world. New
worship training schools will be raised up and they will receive new marching orders. A new and fresh fervency is coming upon worship schools in this hour. Pastors and leaders will begin to share about My presence and share about true worship unto Me. It will
be an experience, not just a mere teaching. It will be encounters of My glory, of My fire and of My presence.
"I am bringing My Bride into a time of experiencing My manifest presence in unprecedented ways.
Yes, the Man whose eyes are filled with fire and whose voice is like the sound of many waters will go to manifest and show up in the place of worship. Wherever you build an altar to Me, I will show up," says the Lord.
Revelation 1:14, "The hairs of His head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire."
God says, "It's time to park around the presence. I'm inviting My people
all across the world to park around the ark of My glory. Families will begin to gather around the table of My presence in living rooms; people will assemble for worship at their jobs; worship will spread in schools and breakout in the streets. There is a righteous
redemption that is coming, likened to Woodstock, but it's a holy movement of worship. Think it not strange that Woodstock began in Bethel, New York." (Bethel means "House of God.")
The Wedding Veil of
the Bride and the Crown of His Authority
Dear friends, there is a return of holy worship that is coming back to the house of God. This revival movement in worship will unleash an uncompromising wave of
purity, holiness, righteousness, healing and justice in the nations of the earth. The Lord says, "Not only am I raising up worshipers, but I am filling the earth with the songs of the Bride and the songs of the Bridegroom."
I began to see a wedding veil land on top of the Church once again, and shortly after the wedding headdress came over the head of the Church, I began to see a crown come down over the wedding veil.
Lord says, "As My people worship in this hour, I will release the crown of My authority. I am doing away with the separation between the sound of intimate worship and the sound of warfare, for I am raising up kings and priests. I am raising up My bridal warriors.
Out of the place of lovesick worship I will release My authority. I will release My revelation and, yes, I will release keys and strategies to overturn the powers of darkness."
3 Months of Increased Revelation
The Lord says, "This will be an hour of increased revelation and visibility of My Spirit. This movement of worship will lead the way even over the next 3 months, even as you step into Rosh
"Get ready to see a new sound come out of South America, specifically out of Colombia, out of Venezuela, and out of Brazil. Get ready to see Australia and various nations within Africa and the
UK break forth in the new sound and new songs. I'm even raising up a new wave of Celtic worship.
"There is a new dance and a new sound that is rising up out of the nations; it's gonna bring provision.
Places that are in war and in danger, where people are bound in chains spiritually and naturally, will hear the sound of the Lord's protection. There is a breakthrough sound of worship."
Isaiah 60:1, "Arise, shine; for
your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you."
To the Songwriters, Musicians and Worship Teams
The Lord says over songwriters, musicians and worship
teams, "A new day has come. Yes, it's time to write the songs, it's time to produce the new music." There's a convergence sound of generations, nations, tribes and tongues that needs to be heard.
ready," says the Lord, "there is a radical uprising for burning hearts that will release holy worship unto Me that will sweep across the earth in this season, and the days and seasons to come," says the Lord. Let your worship go forth!

"Feeling Misunderstood? God Is Opening New Doors –
Prepare for Promotion!"
By Joe Joe Dawson
Recently, very early in the morning, I was in a time of prayer when I heard the Lord say, "I am about to open doors for so many people, but tell them to be ready."
is Making a Way
God is about to open doors for many people. Not just one door, but many doors. However, the Lord is wanting us to make sure that our hearts and minds are ready
to receive these open doors. The Lord wants us to be fully ready when they open. We must be prepared, in the right mindset, and spiritually strong enough to walk through these doors when they open. We must get our emotions aligned and our spirits ready.
God is going to make a way where there seems to be no way. He is going to open up doors in such a grand fashion that you are going to be able to run through them at full speed. When you enter
in, instantaneously, you will reflect back and understand why you spent so long in a wilderness and cave season. Every previous season will make sense in light of these open doors.
The "Old You" Cannot
The reason God wants you to prepare before the doors are open is because the "old you" cannot enter into this new season. Your old way of thinking cannot handle these open
doors. Your old way of doing things will not let you operate correctly in this new season.
One reason doors have not opened for you yet is because of the people beside you. Some
of the people beside you right now cannot go through these doors. It doesn't mean they're bad people, it just means these doors are not designed for them to walk through. Some people, if you allow them to go with you through the open doors, will try to grab
a hold of you and keep you from the advancement that God has for you.
Don't allow anyone, any mindset, any old habit or anything else to keep you from stepping into your open doors!
You have been faithfully walking with the Lord through the hard times and through the great times but they have all been leading up to this season. You are about to run full speed ahead into your destiny.
Just recently, in a time of corporate prayer, the Lord spoke to me about the month of August. The Lord only said this one word to me: "Misunderstood." I began to think about different people
in the Bible and how many of them were misunderstood.
King David was the son who was sent out into the wilderness. David felt misunderstood his entire life. While his brothers
were in the house with their father, he was out in the field with the sheep. I would imagine David felt misunderstood and alone in the wilderness, but what he could not see at the time was that God had placed him there to prepare him.
David was not the only one who spent time alone with God in the wilderness. Immediately following Jesus' baptism He went out into the wilderness to fast and be alone with the Father. Jesus was misunderstood His entire time
on the earth but it did not keep Him from accomplishing what He knew He was sent to do.
The apostle Paul, because of his radical and instantaneous transformation, was misunderstood.
Paul was misunderstood by many of the Believers and former disciples because Paul had previously been murdering Christians and was now suddenly trying to preach the Gospel! It did not make any sense to anyone else, but Paul kept moving forward even though
he was initially misunderstood.
Prepared for Promotion
When we encounter a season in the wilderness it is not to punish us
but rather to prepare us for promotion. You may feel misunderstood and rejected but God is setting you up! In seasons where you feel lonely or isolated, draw near to God in the wilderness.
If you feel misunderstood, you are in the perfect place and in the perfect time to receive the favor and the blessings of God. This is a season where God is taking those people that have felt misunderstood and isolated in this season and pouring out His Spirit
upon them. God uses and sends people who are misunderstood to establish His Kingdom on the earth. God called Moses who stuttered and could easily be misunderstood to lead an entire nation of people out of bondage! Just because you have been misunderstood does
not mean that God cannot do great exploits through you.
For those that have felt rejected, isolated, lonely and forgotten, others may have misunderstood you but God has been preparing
you for a season and a reason that will soon make sense. When people misunderstand you, Heaven understands you. One of the reasons why many of you have felt misunderstood was to protect you from wrong relationships and to set you apart.
Get ready for everything that the Lord has for you. Don't worry about being misunderstood; God is setting you up for something powerful!

Be A Good Steward Of The Ground
I Have Given You Jurisdiction Over
By Russ Walden
The Father says today, be a good steward of the ground I have given you
jurisdiction over. Sow only that which is good. Sow only that which you wish to receive back in abundance. Bring those seeds sown in carnality and sinfulness to the altar, and they will experience crop failure. Stand up to broadly and boldly cast the seeds
of your faith into the good ground I have given and see that ground produce not just thirty or sixty but yea - a hundredfold bumper crop of favor and blessing beyond your expectations.
This is your sowing
season, says the Father. This is the hour that you set your own season in My kingdom and pour out your life like a drink offering before Me. Refuse to hold back. Refuse to listen to the naysayers and the purveyors of negativity and pessimism. Cynicism and
sarcasm do not belong in the heart, mind or mouth of one who claims to believe and declare My Lordship over their lives. Repent quickly, and the contaminated waters of the negative will be healed, and the fresh springs of living water will wash away the sediments
of carnality and renew your mind to the reality of who I am on the inside of you and who you are in Me.
FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
"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:
* One of the main reasons that one is found "untrustworthy" is because they still "maintain" a fear of man within their heart. It is ONLY a perfect [all-consuming]
reverence of Me [My Will - Word] that brings one into the place of abiding in "trustworthiness" - both in My sight and in the sight of all those who truly love Me.
...."For am I now seeking the
favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ".... Galatians 1:10 NASB
"Untrustworthy" - not deserving of trust or confidence; not dependable; not
Anywhere there is pride and/or fear "held to" [willfully maintained through rebellion] in one's life then they will be found to be "untrustworthy" because "self-will" remains on the
throne of their heart. The only way that one can be found trustworthy is through a heart that is "wholly given" [by faith - and continually] to the Father and His Word in every aspect of their life and ministry. One cannot do anything about another's trustworthiness
except, of course, pray for them but they can make sure with every fiber of their being that they are "fully applied" in their own life to being found trustworthy before the Father.
a man proclaims his own loyalty [allegiance], but who can find a trustworthy man?".... Proverbs 20:6 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You
that in this hour you are raising up a people who are found to be trustworthy in Your Sight - a people who have forsaken every last ground of fear and "mistrust" to pursue Your Will/Word with all of their hearts. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis]
in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
