Relax and Let ME Drive!

By Jo Ellen Stevens

 

 

Many of you can relate to someone backseat driving while you are driving.

 

The LORD spoke to me recently about that as I was driving someone and they began to lift their head up and look around as if I couldn’t see where I was going and they had to ‘help’ me drive!

 

Yep, you know those people!  Anyway, I have had many jokes told about my driving in the past so I am a bit sensitive to it and for some reason it makes me feel like they do not trust my driving even though as I tell them all the time:  “I am 65 years old and have been driving for 45 years, so sit back and relax.”

 

Anyway, I heard The LORD say the other day through one of those experiences. “Why do My People not trust Me when I AM in control?

 

I can see far ahead of them and I know their past?  I know when they need to turn and when to stop and yet they stick their head up and turn their neck to see if I know where I AM going with their lives!

 

It is time to trust me!  I AM not the co-pilot, I AM the Pilot of their lives if they would just sit back, PRAY AND TRUST, AND ENJOY THE RIDE!”

 

Hallelujah!

Collision With The Revelation

By Syreeta Thomas

 

 

“Write the vision for there is going to be a collision with the revelation.

 

The Power of God will be transforming your perception of what you thought was from My Heart.  But I AM transforming the position you have stood in because the old ways of doing things are not to be as effective anymore.

 

Just like a general who trains his troops to be effective in decision making “on the fly” as the columns of troops and heavy equipment for battle are strategically placed, so am I transforming your position in the Spirit so that the effectual working of My Mighty Power will have its greatest effect upon those who believe.

 

Do not be conformed to the ways of the world nor be diligent in the things that the world would expect from you, for My ways are higher than your ways, higher than the ways that the world expects from you.

 

Therefor keep you heart with all diligence for out of the heart come the issues of life.  Your God is an all consuming fire and the things that you have been consumed with will be burned away like wood, hay and stubble.

 

But the ways of My Spirit will produce in you Gold and Silver as refined by fire.  For I AM your shield and your exceedingly Great Reward,” says The LORD.

The Holy Spirit Speaks in Dreams & Visions

By Elaine Tavolacci

 

 

There are many instances in the Bible when The LORD spoke to people in visions and dreams.

 

He put Abraham into a deep sleep to make a covenant with him, He gave Abimelech a warning dream not to touch Sarah, because she was Abraham’s wife.

 

He gave Joseph a dream, which we all know as “Joseph’s coat of many colors”.  Through a series of events Joseph was brought from the pit to the palace.

 

During this time he interpreted Pharaoh’s dreams as well as his cup bearer and baker’s dreams.

 

In a dream He showed Jacob a ladder into heaven with angels ascending and descending.  When Jacob awoke he said, “Surely The LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.”  And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place!  This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”

 

He spoke to Solomon in a dream and said: Whatever you want I will give to you.  Solomon asked for wisdom.

 

The LORD replied: Because you have not asked for long life or riches and honor or the lives of your enemies, I will also give you what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days and if you keep my ways as your father David did, I will lengthen your days.

 

The LORD gave Nebuchadnezzar a dream in which Daniel interpreted.  Daniel also had many visions, revelations and encounters of the end times.

 

In the New Testament The LORD sent an angel to Joseph in a dream and told him not to be afraid and to take Mary as his wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

 

Pilate’s wife had a nightmare convincing her that Jesus was the Messiah.  The LORD also gave Peter a vision while praying on a rooftop showing him that he is not bound by the law and not to call anything unclean.

 

God spoke to John on the island of Patmos in the book of Revelation.  He received encounters with visions and revelations of the end times.

 

In the book of Acts Peter stood up in the Upper Room and quoted the prophecy from Joel 2:28-29.  We are living in a time when many people are receiving dreams from heaven.

 

Many of you don’t realize that some of your dreams are prophetic in nature.  They are directional dreams, destiny dreams and warning dreams.

 

They are dreams to instruct you, heal you and encourage you.  The enemy will also try to counterfeit this and bring dreams of fear, confusion and delusion.

 

Several years ago I had a dream, which I now realize, was a warning dream.  This dream showed intricate details of the plans of the kingdom of darkness against me personally in an allegorical dream.

 

Jesus gives us the opportunity to intercede on behalf of our dreams to derail the strategies of the enemy.

 

I want to share another prophetic dream that I had several years ago, which I shared once before.  A few years ago I was in a service and I had a powerful encounter with the Holy Spirit.

 

I remember how I was still enveloped in the anointing of God when I got home.  That night I had two separate dreams, which were two hours apart.  These prophetic dreams are more relevant for today than they were when I received them.

 

In the first dream I was in a huge ancient place.  There were surrounding mountains that appeared to be made of ivory.

 

A very gracious lady was giving me a tour of this magnificent place, but I don’t recall what her face looked like.  All I could remember was that her countenance was pleasant and loving as an angel.

 

As I walked with her we saw numerous eagles in cages made of wood and metal.  Each eagle was in its own cage.  Many of them were not full-grown eagles but they were various ages and sizes.

 

As this lady was showing me around, we noticed one young eaglet that broke out of its wooden crate, as it broke the wood by pushing it up with its beak and simply hopping out.

 

Although it was an eagle, its appearance was different from a full-grown eagle because it was a very young eaglet.  When the lady saw this she laughed in amusement and gently placed the eaglet back into the crate, because it wasn’t time for it to be released.

 

There were also some young lions.  There was one young lion, which I recognized was a female because it didn’t have a mane.

 

This young lion was on a long leash, but I couldn’t understand why it was so gentle rather than vicious.

 

As I continued to walk with her I was looking up in amazement at the huge arched cathedral ceilings which were approximately fifty feet high and made of a beautiful engraved stone.

 

I asked her who owned this place and she responded, “Two Jewish men.”  I then looked up and saw two gigantic ancient doors made of dark brown brass.  Engraved in gold leaf in these doors were the words: “Tallit and Tekiah“.

 

When I woke up I recorded this dream and went back to sleep.  Two hours later I had another dream where I went back to that place and this time I heard anointed music playing in the atmosphere.

 

I was talking to a Jewish man with a long robe.  I saw the two ancient doors again and in front of the man was a podium with the inscription that said: Isaiah 45:1-2,

 

“Thus says The LORD to His anointed, To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held — to subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the Double Doors, so that the gates will not be shut:

 

I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.

 

I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, The LORD, who call you by your name am the God of Israel.”

 

The next morning I looked up the two words “Tallit and Tekiah” and found that the tallit is a Jewish prayer shawl and the tekiah is the sound that a shofar (rams horn) makes.

 

The sound of the tekiah is especially used in the celebration for Rosh Hashanah, Passover and Yom Kippur which represents victory and freedom and is still in practice today.  Jews also still wear the tallit today during prayer (prayer shawl).

 

This is the prophetic word that I received:

 

The LORD says, “I AM raising up many prophets, prophetic voices and visionaries from among you.

 

There are many young eagles in training.  Many of them are hidden away, some are in the fields, some are in the marketplace but each one is spending time in the secret place.

 

They are in intercession and worshiping Me as they are preparing their hearts for what I have for them.

 

These young eagles are being raised up to proclaim My prophetic voice and My Word to the nations.

 

When they come before you, embrace them and do not refuse them because they are being sent forth as My representatives.

 

Do not judge them by their outward appearance, education, inadequacies or lack of stamina.

 

They are My chosen generation who will go forth with great power and anointing.  They are warriors and have no fear of the enemy’s revenge or retaliation because they know who they are.

 

They have been tested in the fire and have survived the lion’s den.

 

Don’t look at their situations of where they are now because many are going to be amazed as they see them rebound right into the place that they were called to be.

 

I will release to them the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches of secret places and you will be amazed what I am about to do with their lives,” says the Lord.

 

“Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the Lord, make Myself known to him in a vision; I speak to him in a dream,”    Numbers 12:6.

 

“In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction,”    Job 33:15-16.

 

“He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him,”    Daniel 2:22.

Time to Surrender

By Cathy Meijer

 

 

Dear Kingdom Leaders,

 

We can have a title in front of our name, but if The LORD did not call you in your task, if He does not approve what you are doing, if there is no anointing…  You have NOTHING!

 

The LORD is calling us back into HIS will, HIS rules, HIS ENTIRE word.  Surrender and give up your life!

 

Say out loud:  “Father, into YOUR hands I commit my spirit.”  And then watch HIM move!

 

Your prayer life will change from idealistic dreams and self-chosen positions, weak words and own plans, into HIS plan for you.

 

And the Holy Spirit will take over! HIS words, spoken through your mouth, will not come back in vain, but do what it is send for honoring His Holy Name!  Selah!

 

“For just as rain and snow fall from heaven and do not return without watering the earth, making it bud and sprout, and providing seed to sow and food to eat, so My word that proceeds from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please, and it will prosper where I send it,”    Isaiah 55:10-11.

 

 

 

Blessings and Shalom over you!

Mamme Devorah

Following His Lead

By Greg Laurie

 

 

           

LISTEN  

 

 

 

 

My steps have stayed on your path; I have not wavered from following you.

—Psalm 17:5

 

 

 

We were just a bunch of kids when what eventually became known as Harvest Christian Fellowship began. We really had no idea what we were doing, but we loved the Lord and wanted to see what He would do. It was around 1972, and we were in the middle of the Jesus Movement, the last great American spiritual awakening. One of the epicenters of this movement was Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California, with Pastor Chuck Smith.

 

Some people from All Saints Episcopal Church in Riverside wanted to see the Jesus Movement come to the Inland Empire, so they asked Calvary Chapel to send someone to preach. A number of pastors went and spoke there for a time. Meanwhile, I had been hanging around the office, sort of like an intern, and eventually someone said, “Greg, why don’t you do it?”

 

So I did it, and I kept at it. This little Bible study of young people began to grow, and pretty soon I could see that it was turning into a church. I hardly felt qualified to be the pastor of a church, so I looked for someone to take the role. No one would. So I accepted the fact that this was what the Lord had for me. We outgrew our location and moved over to a Baptist church, which is now our Sunday school building in Riverside. When we outgrew that building, we took the biggest step of faith ever, way outside our comfort zone: we built a building. Back then, the cost was $1 million. I remember people saying that it wouldn’t work; it wouldn’t succeed.

 

God will do His work in His way and in His timing. So don’t listen to your critics. Listen to the Lord and do what He leads you to do.

"Good News Travels Fast!"

By Ben Peters

 

 

 

Exciting Times Are on the Horizon

 

Recently, God dropped a fresh and powerful revelation into my spirit regarding the power of good news to travel at the speed of light and accomplish far more than our human minds can comprehend. I am more firmly convinced than ever that one of the most exciting times we have ever seen in the earth is on the horizon.

 

"...The rejects of this world have been in bondage to the prince of this world. But God is speaking now, saying that He will bring about a dramatic and quick deliverance from demonic bondages."

 

Prominent prophets are declaring the imminent manifestation of a huge wave of revival. Others call it another Great Awakening in America and around the world, along with an incredible transfer of wealth from the heathen to God's Kingdom to fund this great harvest of souls. Many believe this powerful wave of God's glory has already begun, and we can see signposts and previews in various places.

 

God has revealed some secrets in His Word that demonstrate a powerful truth related to sudden waves of revival. In addition, we do have many examples from modern history of culture-shaking revivals in places like Scotland, Wales, the Hebrides, and Indonesia, to name a few. I've personally been blessed to witness some wonderful moves of God in Canada, Florida, Argentina, Mozambique, India and South Korea, but I believe they will pale in importance and impact when compared to what is on the horizon.

 

The Story of Four Lepers

 

God spoke clearly and prophetically to me in 2 Kings 7:1-20. It's the story of the devastating famine in the Israeli city of Samaria. The Syrian army surrounded the city and blockaded their food supply. This famine was so severe that some mothers were eating their own babies. The main characters in this drama were four starving lepers who found food in the Syrian army's camp. God had frightened the army into a hasty retreat, leaving both food and great wealth behind. Let's look quickly at how this applies to the coming revival and the great transfer of wealth.

 

First of all, the prophet Elisha made a radical declaration, saying that within 24 hours, the price of food was going to plummet like a roller coaster's first big drop. An officer of the king of Israel questioned his sanity, saying that even if God opened the windows of Heaven, could that be? Elisha promptly told him that he would witness it, but not partake of it. Elisha represents the prophets today who are proclaiming the abundance of miracle manifestations, producing an enormous harvest of souls for the King of kings.

 

Another player in this drama is the king of Israel in Samaria. He had no answer for the devastating famine, and blamed everything on Elisha, threatening to take his life. This king was not walking with God and represents earthly politicians who have forsaken the godly foundations that they have inherited. They have no answers to the huge problems their people face, but they pass the blame onto the people of God, who try to restore the nation to the ways of God.

 

Next, we have the four lepers, men with physical defects, who were forced to live outside the camp. They were also starving, but in their desperation, they decided to visit the camp of the enemy to see if they would be shown any mercy. It was better to take the chance of being killed by the Syrians than to die the slow death of starvation.

 

But God had made a move that nobody expected. He had created a sound like the thundering of a thousand hooves that convinced the Syrian soldiers that the Egyptians and Hittites had been hired to fight them. Being unprepared for this, they fled in terror, leaving vast amounts of food, horses, donkeys, clothing, gold and silver, and other personal wealth behind.

 

These lepers were so excited to discover their new found treasure that they carried off what they could, hid it, and came back for more. Soon it occurred to them that they were not doing the right thing. They said, "We have good news, and we shouldn't be keeping it to ourselves." They immediately ran and told the gatekeepers of the city what they had discovered. The gatekeepers quickly passed on the information to the household of their skeptical king who checked out their story and, finding it to be true, told the great news to his people. We are told that the people went out and plundered the Syrian camp, and that day the price of food had dropped to the exact amount, which Elisha had predicted.

 

"I am more firmly convinced than ever that one of the most exciting times we have ever seen in the earth is on the horizon."

 

Thus, these four lepers delivered the good news that literally brought physical salvation to the whole city of Samaria. I call them "the Four Evangelists of the Old Testament," just as there are four evangelists of the New Testament—Mathew, Mark, Luke and John. Evangelist means "messenger of good news." For me, the number four represents the Good News or the Gospel.

 

A New Breed of Evangelist

 

So, who do these lepers represent? This is where I hear God speaking loud and clear. The lepers represent the rejects of this earth. They are the addicts, the prostitutes, the criminals, the abusers and the abused, who like the lepers, have suddenly discovered a source of spiritual food and wealth created by an explosive move of God's Spirit. This powerful move will bring about deliverance from many demonic attachments. The enemy had attached itself to the city of Samaria where people were imprisoned inside the city walls. In the same way, the rejects of this world have been in bondage to the prince of this world. But God is speaking now, saying that He will bring about a dramatic and quick deliverance from demonic bondages.

 

This will be a huge catalyst in the coming revival. Those finding their personal freedom will be incredibly excited and the Good News (the Gospel) will literally travel with lightning speed. It will travel by phone, text message, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other forms of social media, as well as television and radio. Along with miracles of healing, raising the dead and cleansing lepers, these miracles of deliverance will empower a new breed of evangelist.

 

These untrained evangelists will know one thing: where they found the food. That's all they need to know. They will go to the gatekeepers—leaders they know in various spheres of society. Their stories, or testimonies will reach the highest levels of society, including government, media and entertainment. These stories will always conclude with an invitation and information about where to find the food that they have found.

 

Soon kings on every mountain of society will be informed about the move of God. Many of these will be in a position of great personal desperation from their own personal spiritual famine and will embrace this move of God. Some of these will be possessors of great wealth and will be so excited about the power and love of God that they will dedicate their wealth for the sake of the Kingdom. This will be a part of the transfer of wealth. Others will harden their hearts and miss out on what God would like to do for them. These may be replaced on their mountains by those who walk with God.

 

The Sound of a Thousand Thundering Hooves

 

My adult ministry began under the mentorship of a wonderful man of God who had a strong ministry of deliverance, healing and prophetic encouragement. His discerning of spirits and gift of knowledge were extremely accurate. From spending eight years with him, I know what these gifts can accomplish with lightning speed, including the salvation of thousands of souls. I am extremely excited to see what God is going to do in our day as He sends the sound of a thousand thundering hooves again into the camp of the enemy, and sets millions of captives free. These freed men and women will then become the flaming evangelists that spread Kingdom revival to the hundreds of millions, or even the billions of starving souls on planet Earth.

 

 

We Have a Strategic Role to Play

 

You and I have a strategic role to play. We must align ourselves with the Word of the Lord through the mouth of His prophets and not doubt like the king's officer, who lost his life in the excitement of the crowd. We must pray and intercede for leaders and politicians who will need their hearts softened when the harvest gets into high gear. We must also pray for those who are today's rejects, that they would be desperate, like the four lepers, to find the spiritual food that their souls crave. Some of these are your friends and relatives who have come into bondage and have lost hope of deliverance. Always pray for the one thousand thundering hoofs to be heard in the land, which will cause our enemy to flee and allow us to repossess what he has stolen from God's people. Amen.

"Is Anything Too Hard for the Lord?"

By Elaine Tavolacci

 

 

There is a story in the book of Genesis about a man named Abraham and his wife Sarah. They left their families, and even their country, trusting the Lord at His word to bless them and make them a great nation. "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness" (Romans 4:3b). The word of the Lord came to Abraham in a vision and told him that he was going to have a child. The Lord put Abraham in a deep sleep and made a covenant with him. When I read this passage I remembered that the Lord also put Adam into a deep sleep when He created Eve from his rib.

 

A Solution, But Not the Promise

 

Sarah gave her Egyptian maid Hagar over to her husband so they could have a son. Abraham went along with Sarah's wishes and Hagar conceived and had a son who they named Ishmael. This was not God's promised son. Then the Lord reminded me of the time that Adam followed his wife Eve by eating the forbidden fruit which was not God's will.

 

Some of you are tired of waiting on God's promise and you are about to settle for an Ishmael. If you follow your natural instincts you will not produce what Jesus has for you. Don't try to make things happen in your own strength. Refuse to give birth to an Ishmael because the Lord has an Isaac planned for you if you wait on Him.

 

Ten years later the Lord came down and appeared to Abraham. He changed his name from Abram to Abraham and changed his wife's name from Sarai to Sarah. He told him that Sarah, herself, was going to have a son and would name him Isaac. Abraham fell on his face and laughed to himself. Although he was a man of faith, this sounded ridiculous to him because of their age.

 

In chapter eighteen, the Lord appeared to Abraham again as three men came to him. He told him, once again, that Sarah was going to have a son. Sarah overheard this conversation and she also laughed in unbelief. Although they trusted the Lord all along, they were now looking at their situation in the natural and could only see an obstacle, which was their old age. "And the Lord said to Abraham, 'Why did Sarah laugh, saying, "Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?" Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son'" (Genesis 18:13-14).

 

I Laugh!

 

The story goes on to say in chapter 21 that Sarah conceived a son named Isaac in her old age. He was the promised son. The name Isaac means, "laugh." Ishmael was not God's perfect will, but he was something that was born of the flesh. John 3:6 says: "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit."

 

The Lord says, "Is there anything too difficult for Me? Don't allow situations in the natural to steal your faith. Trust in My promises and provisions. Do not see yourself as inadequate, but know that I can do more with your life than you could do in the natural. I am El Shaddai and nothing is too difficult for Me. Just as I told Abraham to leave everything behind and trust Me in the journey ahead, I am calling you to trust Me with your future.

 

"Just as I led Abraham, I will also lead you. I am the same yesterday, today and forever and I am still speaking today. Just as I honored Abraham's prayers and did not destroy the city for ten righteous, will I not honor your prayers? Trust Me for your families, your cities and even your countries to be brought into My Kingdom. Believe My Word to answer every prayer and supplication.

 

There is Power in Covenant

 

"Don't make hasty decisions, which will produce an Ishmael. Wait on that which I have promised to you because it shall surely come to pass. Just as I made a covenant with Abraham, I have made a covenant with you. Wait on My promise. Your promised seed, Isaac, is on the way. Don't allow the enemy to magnify the difficulties in your life and make them appear unconquerable.

 

"I will bring you through situations that you have not been able to go through on your own and open the doors that need to be opened. Trust Me to move every obstacle that is blocking you from getting to your destination. Go forth in that which I have commissioned for you to do. Go without fear or wavering, surrendering all for the assignment that I have for your life," says the Lord.

 

"By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude—innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore." (Hebrews 11:8-12)

Let Go Of The Past

By Russ Walden

 

 

The Father says today, let go of the past. Relinquish those things that have not changed that you can neither control nor make different than they are. This is the day to put your foot forward in the upward path of what your future now looks like. There were those that were a part of your life who made a different choice. For that reason, I stooped and wrote in the sands of your life to re-order your destiny according to My plan and My purpose, says the Father. Relationships are coming. New possibilities are emerging, so don't look back. Don't look back to the things that are behind you but look to the things that are ahead. Always remember that because you belong to Me, your past will never dictate your future.

 

Sink your roots of faith down deep in My promise this dayRaise those boughs and branches of hope to the heavens and know that a new day is dawning. No more pining in the tombs of regret over past things. This is the time of looking forward to highest heart's desire and greatest dream fulfilled. What I have for you in your future is so worth emptying your hands and your heart of the clods of yesterday's burned over fields. Are you willing to move forward? You must be ready to move forward for I am not willing to linger where things are. Will you go with Me outside the camp of disappointment? Will you move forward with the cadence of "forgive, release and bless?" In that determination, you will see the past dissolve into nothingness, and a new bright future take shape right in front of you.

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 

                                                      

 

 

                                                     FAITH OR UNBELIEF

 

                                                             [Part 2 of 3]

 

                    UNBELIEF [MISTRUST] IS AN AFFRONT TO THE FATHER

 

Words of prophecy:                                                                                              

 

*       The continual exercising of faith slams the door shut on the Enemy. The wilful maintaining of fear and unbelief - through a mistrust of Me - opens it wide!    

                                                                 

        ...."So we see that they were not able to enter [into His rest {into the Promised Land}], because of their unwillingness to adhere to and trust in and rely on God [unbelief had shut them out]".... [Num. 14:1-35]".... Hebrews 3:19 The Amplified Translation

 

        We must make no mistake about this: "unbelief" [wilful mistrust] is an affront [insult] to the Father. I am not talking about unbelief caused by an ignorance of God's Word - that can easily be remedied by one truly giving the Word of God preeminence in their lives, on a daily basis. I am talking about the unbelief that, if held to in pride and fear, will cause one's heart be become "unpersuadable" where the absolute Truth of God's Word and the spiritual realities of the Kingdom are concerned. In this state [of stubbornness and unpersuadableness], that which one has come to "believe" [which, in actuality, is a belief and trust in the lies of the Enemy] leaves them in confusion and darkness - wide open to the vile tactics and schemes of the Enemy to keep them from entering into their true position in the Kingdom and the fullness of their precious destiny, in Christ.

 

        ...."O Lord of hosts, how blessed [divinely empowered and prospered] is the man/woman who trusts in You!".... Psalms 84:10-12 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that, in Christ, we have been set free from the bondage of "unbelief" - in ALL of its forms. Therefore, we set ourselves to continually guard our hearts with ALL diligence in order that we might be found continually exercising an absolute faith and TRUST in You. And we declare all of these things done [on an ongoing basis] - to Your greatest Glory, in Jesus' Name. Amen.

The Royal Bride!

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

“Weep not, Beloved.  I have put the enemy under your feet.  I AM stirring the heart of My Royal Bride.

 

You are seated in a place of honor at the Right hand of Majesty.  I have clothed you in garments of salvation and wrapped you with My Robe of Righteousness.

 

The fabric is interwoven with threads of kingly gold.  You are all GLORIOUS within.  Your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia, the very fragrance of your Savior.

 

As I AM clothed with splendor and majesty, so are you, My Child.  As I AM, so are you in this world, My sons and daughters.

 

Recite your verses for your King, for I have made your tongue the pen of a ready writer.  I have anointed your lips with grace and your heart with compassion.

 

I have blessed you forever.  In majesty, I AM riding forth on your behalf, in the cause of truth, humility and justice.

 

I AM the Mighty One, the King of all the earth.  I AM He who has pierced the hearts of My enemies and nations fall beneath My Feet. Fear not, My Child.

 

My throne is forever and ever and there will be no end to My Kingdom.  My right Hand achieves awesome deeds for you, Dear One.

 

You are seated with Me in heavenly places, My Bride.  My anointing of JOY is flowing from My Head onto yours.  My joy shall be your strength.  The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.”

 

“I will rejoice greatly in the LORD, My soul will exult in my God; for He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels,”    Isaiah 61:10.

 

“Because as He is, so also are we in this world,”    1 John 4:17.

 

“My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the King; My tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.  Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of Your kingdom.  You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set You above Your companions by anointing You with the oil of joy.   All Your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia; from palaces adorned with ivory; the music of the strings makes you glad.  Daughters of kings are among your honored women; at Your Right Hand is the ROYAL BRIDE IN GOLD of Ophir……

 

….. The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold,”   Psalm 45:1-9,13.

 

“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.  For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing,”      2 Corinthians 2:14-15.

 

“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.  The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you,”    Romans 16:20.

Travail

By Dana Jarvis

 

 

Travail —  Intense intercession given by the Holy Spirit whereby an individual or group is gripped by something that grips God’s heart.

 

They labor with Him for an opening to be created so that the New LIFE can come forth.

 

Your travail has been heard and it has not been in vain!

 

“Yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it,”   Isaiah 46:11b.

 

“He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied….”   Isaiah 53:11a.

 

Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD,”    Isaiah 66:9.

 

“O lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee: Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry,”    Psalms 88:1-2.
