In An Open Vision

Kathy Mote

 

 

In an open vision I was taken to the place of precious stones and it was beautiful. Then I was escorted by an angel to an archive. In the archive I was shown things I had no particular interest in, but I politely listened.

 

I did not care to know how transgression entered the world or how it remains in the heart of man, how the angels fell or how they will be judged. It is beyond me to care about anything but being in His presence. I learned that when you don't honor Him, He doesn't answer you. This is His creation and He alone can make it right. I felt a pique of interest, though, when I heard my Father's voice.

 

He said, No one waits for Me and they don't patiently endure. They curse their own lives being angry with Me for what they endure outside the Light. They do not honor Me, nor do they speak of Life with any honor at all. I fill them with living waters which speak, but out of their mouths they defile themselves instead. They do not look for Me, but then, I have not been revealed as I AM to them. I do not answer to the accusations they make, yet I will have mercy on them.

 

Just as I heard Him speak, I saw Jesus just outside the place I had been. The room had no windows, no view of Heaven, and I no longer wished to be there. I didn't want knowledge or understanding. I only wanted to be with Jesus, as simple minded as that makes me sound.

 

I rushed to be near Him, and as I did, I became as a stream of waters rushing to Him. The waters that He had placed within me were powerful and of considerable force as they flowed back to Him.

 

I was awed by the power of the waters as they flowed to Him, drawing my heart with them always to Him. I was refreshed by the sound of them, and by how they moved me back to Him. They moved me toward Him so powerfully that nothing in Heaven or Earth could distract me from wanting to get to Him to be near Him.

 

He alone is the Life in Heaven, and the Light by which everything is seen. There is nothing He has created that eclipses Him. Of all the beautiful things there are to know, knowing them isn't knowing Him.

 

I have no words to describe the things I saw, or how beautiful the stones on the wall were. They were in a garden of beautiful stones on the edge of a very high place. He said we were created there among them when He laid the foundation of all He created, and we were precious to Him.

Humility is Required to Fulfill Your Commission

By Kathy Mote

 

Humility is required to fulfill your commission, to answer your calling and accept the gifts you are given, because like you, the calling, commission and the gifts were meant to honor Him. Without humbly accepting, the gift won't be given and the calling won't be walked in. Without humility, you won't honor Him. He will hold you back to protect and prepare you.

To Those The Lord Called To Bring Great Change

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

To those the Lord called to bring great change, the Lord said, Today the gloves come off. I will give you deeper revelation. I have called you to participate in what I am doing, and knowing how will propel you forward. The reason you struggle with unrest and frustration is you don't realize by My Spirit is how I will do what I AM doing. Be hidden by your trust, let your heart be hidden. Trust that I am doing what I AM doing. What I release by My Spirit requires your acceptance and your trust, not your understanding. To stand is your participation.

In the Spirit

Kathy Mote

 

 

 

In the spirit I have been hearing the thunderous cheering of spectators in an arena. It reminds me of when the Christians were thrown to the lions with all the world watching. As I heard it, I cast aside all care of what the devil thinks of my humble obedience. I have always known him to be a sarcastic antagonist. The devil has always been intent on taking from Jesus what is His, and in my heart, my will and the cares of this life are what have been given to Him.

 

I have heard this cheering for several days now, knowing full well that it is the demonic forces laughing at our trusting surrender. It is anathema to them to give up the things of their own life, and their rebellion is how they are fallen away from Him.

 

It is their opinion that we are losing battle after battle as we surrender to His will. But the enemy didn't count on us being given complete victory without fighting. The complete victory of walking in abundant Life is the Lord's will for us. That is something He gives to us as we trust Him.

 

We are being elevated to a higher and much more powerful way of Life, where we do not quibble over our needs being met or our prayers being heard. We do not fight the devil to receive God's will for our lives and we do not strive with God to know His love for us. It is our surrender that opens our heart to receive that from Him.

 

The Lord has gathered our enemies to make them His footstool.

He is Not a Waster or a Destroyer!

By Pastor Debra Lowe

 

 

“I AM not a waster or a destroyer, I fulfill and complete everything that I start.

 

I will fulfill in the lives of My children all that I have promised, and all that you have stood and believed for.

 

This past year will be used as a launching pad for the most powerful encounters, and the greatest advancements for your present and future.

 

Those things that you thought were failures and missed opportunities will be used to turn the crooked places straight.  The bronze and iron will be made pliable to you.

 

In order for you to hear Me this season, you must make a practice of being still.  The busyness of living will try to preoccupy your mind and your thoughts, making it hard for you to hear directions and instructions.

 

You must choose to be still and know.  For many of you I will speak divine secrets and council in the night season, so listen intently, for I will speak as you are walking by the wayside.

 

I desire your attention, so that you may be above only and not behind. My purpose is to cause this world to seek out those who have inside information, so that some may come to know Me as LORD.

 

I will announce to My obedient ones deep wisdom that is known only in the Kingdom.  Searchers and seekers of My Ways will find this “well of wisdom” that has always been available to the diligent.

 

This will lead you out and bring you into the promised place.  My children will not only be preserved but you will advance in a time when the world is failing.

 

It will depend on your devotion to hearing Me, stop all activities that demand your undivided attention and give it to Me.

 

Many people will run here and there, seeking for wisdom, and only the wise in Me will truly understand and discern the times and the season.

 

They have learned Me, by sitting daily in My chambers, becoming familiar to My voice, a stranger’s voice no longer hold their attention.  These are the ones who will fulfill their purpose and My design for their lives.”

 

“Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.  Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is,”   Ephesians 5:15-17.

 

“Through skillful and godly Wisdom is a house (a life, a home, a family) built, and by understanding it is established [on a sound and good foundation], and by knowledge shall its chambers [of every area] be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.  A wise man is strong and is better than a strong man, and a man of and strengthens his power; a wise man is strong and is better than a strong man, and a man of knowledge increases and strengthens his power,”   Proverbs 24:3-5.

 

“I will go before you and level the mountains [to make the crooked places straight]; I will break in pieces the doors of bronze and cut asunder the bars of iron,”   Isaiah 45:2.

I Heard, “Retribution!”

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

“I heard, “Run to Me!”

 

And I saw the enemy sending in waves of fear against the Children of God.  They were being overwhelmed by his vicious attacks.  And I saw Jesus with His Arms open calling to them to run to Him for comfort.

 

And Waves of His Love were coming from His heart to surround them and protect them…. waves of Glory and Grace; wave upon wave; grace upon grace, glory upon glory.

 

And I hear the word, “Retribution.”

 

“Beloved.  Run to Me when your heart is overwhelmed.  When the enemy comes in, when the darkness tries to overwhelm your heart with lies and fear and pain, run to My Open Arms, My Child.

 

I AM the Rock of your salvation, the Rock who is higher than all.  When the prince of darkness comes in, like a flood, the King of Glory shall raise up a standard against him.

 

Like a Rushing Stream, My Spirit shall overwhelm ALL the criminal acts of the devil.  For the demons FEAR the name of Yahweh, My Child.

 

They FEAR the name of Jesus.  They FEAR My Glory!  I come like a Raging River driven by the Spirit of your LORD.

 

He who is Justice has come to save you.  I AM He who dresses in Righteousness with a cloak of Passion across My Shoulders.  When there is none to save you, I come with salvation.

 

The Breath of Yahweh and Waves of My Glory shall overwhelm the waves of darkness.  Do not avenge yourself, Beloved, but come to Me.

 

Vengeance is Mine, and I will repay.  Vengeance is Mine, and retribution, In due time their foot will slip; for the day of their calamity is near, and the impending things are hastening upon them.

 

Fear not, I AM He who is faithful and true.  The eternal God is your refuge, and My everlasting arms are under you.  I drive out the enemy before you.

 

I shall PAY BACK the enemy for his wrongdoings against you, My Child.  YES, Dear One, have no doubt, but leave it to Me.  Run to Me, Beloved, Run to Me!  The God of Love is your Strong Tower where you are safe.”.

 

RETRIBUTION:  Strong’s Hebrew 8005: recompense, requital. PAYBACK for wrongs and criminal acts…

 

“The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe,”   Proverbs 18:10.

 

“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in, like a flood the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him; for He will come as a rushing stream, which the Breath of Yahweh driveth,”   Isaiah 59:19.

 

“From the end of the earth I will cry to You.  When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy.  I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings,”  Psalm 61:2.

 

“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 12:19.

Pain, Suffering and Answers

By Mary Lindow

 

 

One of THE MOST difficult realities of life is that we will face pain, and at times, intense suffering.

 

We face the SHOCKING reality of physical, emotional, and relational pain in uncountable ways.

 

We experience death and losses of many kinds.  It’s part and package of life on planet Earth.

 

When pain and suffering come, we recognize that we aren’t in control of our lives.  Our culture teaches us that all pain is bad, and so?

 

We look for a quick relief or instant cleansing of the pain.  (Well! I sure have done this at times !)

 

It’s natural for our culture to examine and try to dissect God’s Purpose and plans in the midst of suffering.  But, if we are followers of Jesus we need to see from Scripture that God has a purpose, and it’s a DEEP purpose in our suffering.

 

book imageIn his excellent book called “Walking with God through Pain and suffering“ pastor and author Timothy Keller shares such a good biblical view of the reality of suffering, the purpose of suffering, and instructions on how to walk with God as we suffer.

 

Keller writes that the ultimate and deepest suffering was experienced by Jesus.

 

“He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross,”   Philippians 2:8.

 

“Jesus experienced weariness and thirst, distress, grief, he was troubled in heart, he was misunderstood, tempted, assaulted by the devil, and hated by sinful man.”

 

Jesus experienced suffering on our behalf.  But He… humbled Himself anyway.  He chose humility over self exaltation.

 

In my heart I know that God has some kind of purpose for us in our pain and suffering.  But in my mind (a very busy place!) … Well, quite honestly, I don’t like how it can cause us to ache, cry, be afraid and… (maybe you can fill in a few thoughts…)

 

Romans 8:18 says, “. . . if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.”

 

Somehow God uses our suffering for His future Glory.

 

2 Corinthians 4:17 says,

 

“For this momentary, light affliction, is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison.”

 

The Bible guides us to walk with God in a number of practical and helpful ways as we suffer.  I really like what Keller says to those going through suffering,

 

“Scripture gives us supreme and clear direction.”

 

Weep and mourn my friends!

 

Gut it all out.

 

We need to be real and pour out our heart to The LORD as we go through times of pain and suffering.

 

We look to God for His comfort.

 

Trust God and His Word…

 

… Even if is seems so ridiculous and impossible to believe in the moments o feeling wobbly, lost, and off balance.

 

We look to God in faith and Scripture to ALLOW God to strengthen our faith.

 

And PRAY!

 

It can be messy! It’s OK!

 

“Pray always, pray without ceasing, pray about everything.”

 

And Keep On Meditating on the Truth:

 

“Think less of ourselves and more of God” as we go through pain and suffering.

 

(A hard one to do when you want answers and relief isn’t it?)

 

Give Thanks in all things.

 

Think the right things about God in the middle of your suffering:

 

“…… Think on things that are true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worth of praise,

 

DWELL…. park there for a while, and chew on these things,”   Philippians 4:8.

Will It Be Any Different For You?

By Thomas Downes

 

 

Start with what you have.  Start where you are.

 

Your first step is followed with the next in order to keep your balance as you walk.  The anointing and the Power of God in your walk with The Holy Spirit is power that increases as you believe.

 

Jesus said; “You shall receive power after The Holy Ghost has come upon you.”  When Jesus was baptized in the River Jordan, He was driven by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

 

If you belong to Christ, do you think it will be any different for you?  Will it be any different for your calling?

 

Stand fast therefore in the Liberty wherewith Christ has made you free, and do not be entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

 

Now hear the Word of The LORD:

 

“My Grace has been more than sufficient for you, for in your personal weakness, My strength will be manifest.

 

The LORD your God has empowered you to realize that the vision will not tarry, it will come to pass.

 

The timing of My Word for you is no different than the timing of My arrival in your own life, when I became your first love.

 

I kept preparing you for My Word to be effective in that time, when you realized the change in your heart, and recognized My Presence.

 

You were overwhelmed with the realization of how powerful My Love for you really is.

 

I AM preparing you even more to realize the effective fervency that is increasing your awareness of My Presence.

 

Wisdom and knowledge are becoming a greater stability in your life today.  The strength you are finding in salvation, and the fear and reverence of My Presence, are increasingly becoming a treasure to possess with all your heart.

 

The fear of The LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One, is understanding.

 

There is nothing too hard for your God,” says The LORD.

 

“Oh you of little faith, why did you doubt?”

 

“The just shall live by his faith.”

I Love Teaching and the Prophetic

By Daniel Pontious

 

 

 

I love Teaching and the Prophetic! While the Prophetic gives you Purpose, Teaching gives You Direction! The Prophetic aligns you with your Destiny, while the Teaching shows you how to get from where you are to where He is Taking you!

 

You will experience many seasons in your life where both of these will have a stronger Presence than the other from time to time, but both are going to play a major role on your Journey!

 

If you're experiencing one dynamic more than the other in the season you're in, know that it's just where you are in your Journey right now the other will resurface later on down the Road.

Your Prophetic Seed!

By Daniel Pontious

 

 

A lot of people will read the title of this post wondering what Prophetic Seed is, whether it is referring to their children or something else.

 

A Seed is something that you are given, that when it is planted in the soil of something else, emerges transformed into a totally different thing than its original form was.

 

Think of the Prophetic Words or Promises over your life as though they were seeds. Each one of those Promises or Words originated with the Holy Spirit:

 

"For no prophecy ever originated because some man willed it [to do so—it never came by human impulse], but MEN SPOKE FROM GOD WHO WERE BORNE ALONG (moved and impelled) BY THE HOLY SPIRIT." 2 Peter 1:21

 

Each of those Seeds or Words came from the Holy Spirit, regardless of the vessels He used to deliver it. That same Holy Spirit Who brought forth the Seed is going to not only plant the Seed in your life, but it is the Resurrection Power of the Holy Spirit that will bring that Seed (or Prophetic Word) to life.

 

Just as He is the One Who revealed the Promise or Seed to your life, He is the only One Who can cause it to grow and transform into what He has designed for it to become! It is the Resurrection ability of the Holy Spirit in your life that will cause the dead Mustard Seed of Promise to become a Living Entity filled with the Life of God Himself and that Entity will bear more Prophetic Seeds just like the Original one it emerged from!

 

All of Gods Promises (His Prophetic Seeds and Words) are Yes and Amen! 2 Corinthians 1:20

 

How many of us are sitting upon Promises (Prophetic Words) which God has declared over our lives which haven't yet come to pass? We know that Gods Word doesn't return void, so what is happening that these Words haven't emerged?

 

Today I want to encourage you that, if He Authored those Promises, He is the One Who has to bring Resurrection Power to bear to brings those Promises to Fruition! Get close to the Holy Spirit!!!

 

That Quickening Spirit is the One Who, doesn't just bring life to your flesh, but He also causes every Promise to Germinate, Change, Grow and Transform as it has been planted in the Soil of your personal life!!!

 

Trust the Master Gardener of the Holy Spirit for the Emergence and Fulfillment of every Prophetic Seed He has given you and as they come forth from your Personal Earth (your natural existence) you will see for yourself how the Kingdom of God resides inside of your life!!!

 

He has come to give you LIFE and that in ABUNDANCE! John 6:63

Do You Know Who You Are???❤❤❤

"This Month Is a Game Changer"

By Holly Watson

 

 

The Lord spoke to me in December of 2019 and said, "The month of February will be a 'game changer.'" A game changer is defined as a new person, idea, event or protocol that upends the established order. A game changer is a newly introduced element or factor that changes an existing situation or activity in a significant way. Something that is a game changer is radical and disruptive, usually in a positive way. The term "game changer" is a sports term that was adopted by the business community for describing a predicted or unexpected turn of events, for changing the paradigm of current formulas or ways of operation.

 

"Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, 'There is change in the air.' Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me." (Song of Songs 2:13 TPT)

 

With the 2/2/2020 Super Bowl (54) win of the Kansas City Chiefs, there's much buzz about the 'signs' of the times and this most recent event being a prophetic marker to the billion-soul harvest. The prophetic significance of watching the Spirit of God move through supernatural signs no doubt provides confirmation of a God who finds pleasure in speaking to His people through object lessons and symbolism relevant to modern day events.

 

According to the New Testament, the heart of God is to display wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord (Acts 2:19). An increase of signs and wonders in the New Testament is specifically equated with a fresh outpouring of the Spirit, as a new breed emerges from the sons and daughters of God for awakening the earth through the King of Glory (Joel 2:28, Psalm 24:7-9).

 

Although we aren't to seek signs in place of the voice of God through His Word or through the mouths of His true prophets, we are admonished by Jesus to discern the signs of the times for understanding the days and times in which we live (Matthew 16:1-4).

 

"Here am I and the children whom the Lord have given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, Who dwells in Mount Zion." (Isaiah 8:18)

 

"I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below..." (Acts 2:19)

 

Here Comes the New Breed!

 

On several occasions, the Father spoke to me about a move of the Spirit in Kansas City, Missouri (see Kansas City word). During a time of prayer in 2017, I had a vision of a great outpouring of the Spirit breaking out in the mid-west portion of the United States. In this vision, I began to see pockets of glory moving across the belly of our nation with fresh baptisms of Holy Ghost fire igniting the Bride of Christ. As I watched this move of the Spirit erupt across the land, a new wave of spiritual awakening was birthed from a consecrated breed of sons and daughters of God. This new breed of apostles and prophets emerged divinely empowered for gathering in an end-time harvest of souls.

 

I understood this move of the Spirit would birth not only a new sound across the land, but we would also see the rise of a new apostolic and prophetic company carrying reformed characteristics for unlocking a "move of the Spirit replicate" of how Holy Spirit moved on the day of Pentecost in the upper room (Acts 2:2). This "New Breed Company" is anointed with the DNA for birthing change! They are assigned for upsetting the "apple cart" of an old wineskin by awakening the earth through an Elijah anointing of fresh fire and new power. God has anointed these ones to build and release pioneering moves of His Spirit to awaken the world.

 

The epicenter for this new breed carries mid-west roots for spreading generational seeds through the Man named Jesus Christ, His Father, and the Person of the Holy Spirit. An apostolic remnant with prophetic genealogy is emerging from obscurity through the sound of a trumpet blast and with an awakening of revival. The heartland of America is positioned as a "game changer" for shifting the Church into a historical move of God! A turning point for a new era is here!

 

A Dream of Bob Jones

 

Several years ago, I had a dream about the prophet Bob Jones. In one portion of my dream, I was approached by Bob who handed me his baby to feed and take care of. After Bob made the exchange of his baby from his arms and into mine, he then handed me a plate of apples, raisins, and rice cakes for the baby to eat. My first impression, upon examining the food being served as the baby's immediate diet, was that the baby was too immature to consume the food on the plate. It was then that Todd White emerged as a counterpart to Bob's strategy for fulfilling my assignment of feeding and caring for the baby. Before leaving, Bob turned to me in his familiar mannerisms and tone and said, "The baby can eat the food and he can feed himself."

 

"Revive me with your raisin cakes. Refresh me again with your apples. Help me and hold me, for I am lovesick! I am longing for more – yet how could I take more?" (Song of Songs 2:5)

 

Most of us are familiar with the story of Bob Jones and his home-going being on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2014. The story is told that before Bob's death, he encountered a near-death experience where he witnessed God asking those ready to enter the gates of Heaven if they had learned to love. Apparently, Bob's assignment on Earth was incomplete, causing Bob to get a second chance for spreading the message of love, while the Church awaited her time for pulling in the billion-soul harvest. Bob Jones carried this mandate of love throughout his earthly ministry to herald a message to the Church for returning to her first love.

 

I believe my dream pertaining to Bob Jones positions us with the times and seasons of God for stewarding an end-time harvest of souls. I believe the Church is on the precipice of reaching her full maturity for a greater outpouring of the Spirit to spread the love of Christ through the billion-soul harvest.

 

When I cared for Bob Jones' baby in my dream, I understood that the baby (revival) was sustained through the power of love and through a spirit of evangelism for impacting the world. I also understood that as the Bride of Christ longs for her Bridegroom and positions herself through hunger, holiness, and a deeper communion with the Father (consecration), hearts will be set ablaze with a passion for Christ mirroring a Jesus People Movement in this new era.

 

Game Changers

 

The month of February is a 'game changer' in many aspects, especially with the 'signs' of a great reformation being birthed upon the earth through the Super Bowl win of the Kansas City Chiefs. The most recent acquittal of President Donald Trump of all impeachment charges 'changes the game' for many who questioned the hand of God moving sovereignly over the impeachment hearings. With the earth desperately seeking for a city of refuge from the atrocities of this world, Jesus is on display for all to see in this new era!

 

The Body of Christ is positioned as conduits for the Spirit of Glory to move through, as a reformed Church pioneers 'a modern day love movement' for gathering souls into the Kingdom through a new outpouring of the Spirit.

 

Where the battle between light and darkness vies for the world's attention, the Spirit of God is preparing His Bride to hit the mark of her intended impact in this glorious new era! The Spirit of God spoke to me last year and said, "All the signs are there; pay attention."

 

Watch for 'game changers' in this season to accelerate you like never before. New territory, new assignments, bold moves for the Kingdom, and an acceleration of the gifts and callings of God on your life are waiting to elevate you to the next level! A move of God through a kosher breed is beginning to roar in this hour. The key to a new door has opened! A shift in the Church has occurred.

 

"But as Scripture says: 'No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love Him.'" (1 Corinthians 2:9)

 

"And the key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder; so he shall open, and no one shall shut; and he shall shut, and no one shall open." (Isaiah 22:22)

"Who Will You Serve? Learning to Walk Out Your Spiritual Authority"

By Jennifer Eivaz

 

 

 

Prophets are often living parables, walking out and experiencing a prophetic word firsthand, before they are released to communicate that specific prophetic word. This is why so many strange and unusual circumstances happen to them. It is not just another strange and bewildering incident that occurs, but the Lord is divinely ordering their steps for this very purpose. Somewhere, somehow, God is in that situation with a potent word, not just to the prophet, but also through the prophet.

 

From a Heart of Stone to a Heart of Flesh

 

One day, I was led by the Spirit to pray a specific prayer over myself for (what seemed like) no particular reason at all. I began to call out daily to the Lord to "Create in me a clean heart" (Ps. 51:10). I couldn't point to anything outrageously wrong with my heart at the time, but then nobody really knows their own heart except God alone. Jeremiah wrote, "The heart is deceitful above all things..." (Jer. 17:9) – mostly because we can't see what's in there until the light of God comes and reveals it.

 

After finishing a conference in Perth, Australia, I had a powerful encounter from the Lord in the middle of the night, and what happened next explained why I had been led to pray what I prayed.

 

In this encounter, He picked me up out of my bed in the most tender embrace. While He did so, something from Him tangibly dropped into my heart. I'm not referring to my physical heart, but to my inner man and the very core of my being. I was absolutely undone like I've never been before. Until that exact moment, I was completely unaware that my heart had half died until it was resurrected by that powerful encounter. Sadly, my heart had turned to stone and I didn't even know it (Ezek. 36:26).

 

What caused my heart to die like that? I learned later how I had subconsciously deadened my own heart in response to pain, grief, betrayal, and so much more. When your heart dies and turns to stone, you don't feel this happening to you. As a matter of fact, you won't feel anything at all. You don't feel pain, you don't feel empathy or compassion, you stop crying, and you generally stop caring. Even worse, you stop feeling the presence of the Spirit and you can't discern as sharply. You begin to go spiritually and emotionally blind on the inside.

 

After this encounter, which was incredibly beautiful, came the most difficult work of dealing with every reason that my heart died in the first place. This involved highly-skilled inner healing and deliverance ministers, as well as professional Christian trauma therapy. Healing has cost me much time and money and has been a slow process, mostly because the pain of healing is often worse than what caused the damage in the first place.

 

Still in my own journey and now noticing far too many people who love Jesus yet they too are going dead on the inside, I've asked the Lord to speak. We have high hopes for 2020, but a dead heart can't carry a blessing from God, at least not for very long. A blessing from God can actually crush you and become a curse to you when you don't have the heart for it.

 

Here is what He said:

 

1. Make No Excuses

 

I touched on some of this last year, but it still needs emphasis this year. We read in Luke 14:16-24 about the man who invited many to a great supper but how "they all with one accord began to make excuses" (v. 18). One said he bought five yoke of oxen and was going to test them, then another said he bought a field and needed to go look at it, and another said he just got married and couldn't come. Maybe I'm reading into this, but who buys land and that many oxen without viewing and testing them first? And then why would you not take your new wife to a party? Was something defective with her? I doubt it. It was just an excuse.

 

You see, excuses come in justified packages. They justify themselves and parade about as totally legitimate. We use excuses to get out of crystal-clear invitations and directives from the Lord. We use excuses to live below our worth. We deceptively believe this is okay, but it's not. It's covert disobedience and cuts short the plans and purposes of God in our lives.

 

My husband, Ron, has said many times, "Your heart will determine the borders and parameters of your life." We also read in the Proverbs 4:23, "Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life." You might have big dreams and a big call from God on your life, but a small heart leads to a small life. A broken heart leads to a broken life.

 

We are commanded to be wholehearted in our devotion to God, but you cannot serve the Lord wholeheartedly unless your heart is whole. It's not that you don't want to, you simply can't. You don't have the heart for it. Pain, therefore, is not a justifiable excuse to avoid your healing journey. All growth requires you to walk through something and not avoid it. Growth hurts, often intensely, and so we ask for His grace instead. The Bible encourages us with powerful promises to the overcomers. Those who overcome get nations and the hidden manna (Rev. 2:17, 2:26).

 

2. Who Will You Serve?

 

During my second year as a Christian, age 19, I was attending a house prayer service when one of the women in attendance looked over at me with concern. She said, "I see a spirit of sorcery standing over you," and when she said this, something picked me up and threw me against the wall. (You can read about this in detail in my first book, The Intercessors Handbook.) Next, I went into a lengthy, grand-maul demonic manifestation, one that is hard to explain given my absolute love for Jesus, as well as being baptized in the Holy Spirit. The women, all versed in spiritual warfare, were helpless to deliver me and I endured over three months of intense battle until the Holy Spirit rose up within me and set me free.

 

When that demon entered my room to torment me once again, a sense of faith suddenly filled my heart. This was not my faith, but His faith speaking through me. I then spoke to the spirit with perfect authority, "I will not serve you. I will only serve the Lord Jesus Christ." It left immediately and never returned. I also lost all fear of the demonic and had a sense of spiritual authority that I did not have before.

 

I've pondered this scene for years. I've pondered the statement that came from my own mouth by the Holy Spirit for years. I was being spiritually and supernaturally bullied into submission and felt terrified and hopeless until the Holy Spirit came to my rescue. Then a few months ago, I had a dream that I knew was from the Lord.

 

In the dream, I watched an older man experiencing something similar. I've known this man for several years and would describe his faith as just nominal. There is nothing about him that shows he is passionate or vibrant for the Lord. In the dream, he was being savagely bullied by a demon, and he was out-of-his-mind terrified. I watched as he submitted to the spirit and went limp in his Christian faith. I woke up hearing the clear voice of the Holy Spirit asking me this: "Who will you serve?" I responded back, "I will only serve the Lord."

 

Are you being spiritually tormented? Have you been subjected to a demonically induced terror? For some of you, this is happening in your dreams or it's happening to you when no one is watching. I know that I know that if you didn't carry something from God that severely threatened satan's kingdom, this spirit or these spirits would leave you alone. The spirit realm often knows who we are in God well before we do.

 

At the same time, you cannot consent to demons. What I mean is you can't submit to spiritual harassment and then go dormant in your faith to avoid it. Elijah asked the Israelites at the stand-off between him and the prophets of Baal, "Who will you serve?" And in fear they answered not a word. They went dormant, limp, and were double-minded. Still, God proved Himself to be God in the face of the prophets of Baal. My point is this: you must learn how to walk out your spiritual authority.

 

Here is the word of the Lord about this:

 

• What beat others won't beat you, and;

 

• Satan tried everything to defeat you. You won't be defeated. You're being weaponized.

 

My simple prayer for you is this: "Holy Spirit, I ask You to come to the rescue."

You Are Under My Protection

By Russ Walden

 

 

 

The Father says today, you are under My protection.  By My presence alone darkness is dispelled and demons cannot approach.  Just the virtue of My presence in your life attracts favor and blessing into your situation.  By My presence, there is an aroma around you that is repugnant to some and very attractive to others.  Total strangers will stop you and say, “Excuse me, what is that fragrance, that aftershave that you are wearing?” With a smile, you will say “it is Himself.”

 

You will walk through dangers illuminated with My presence and be unconcerned.  Others will shriek and run away but you will stand there perfectly composed with My hand on your shoulders knowing you live in an impenetrable shield of My glory and goodness in your life.

 

Every morning I will bathe you in My grace and forgiveness.  The encroachment of the sinful nature is continually waning and the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus is coming more and more to the forefront of what you do and who you are.  Accept no substitutes!  There are many things that are spiritual that are not godly.  Make an effort to know the difference between human charisma and anointing from the throne. 

 

Many of My people are reveling in the strange fire of that which proceeds from the ego and personas of prideful men and women.  Know the difference and politely excuse yourself from their company and go to the secret place. In the secret place I will reveal My secrets and in the secret place, the high tower of My name, you will nestle in and be nourished and protected from the storm.

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 

                                                     

 

      

KINGDOM-FINANCES AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF TRUE SPIRITUAL ENVIRONMENTS

 

                                                              [part 1 of 2]

 

Words of Prophecy:

 

*       When all those who are called to this last wave of Kingdom service and ministry experience the New Birth and are filled with the Holy Spirit [the baptism of holy Fire] they will surely need true spiritual environments [environments {schools} of the Holy Spirit] provided for them wherein they shall be "immersed" in My anointed Word for a time. As the "harvest"  begins to accelerate in this season I shall surely move powerfully in the establishment of the aforementioned true spiritual environments, and I shall release the necessary Kingdom-finances to establish every good and perfect [righteous] work - and truly I say to you, My Glory shall "abide" [dwell] in the midst of all those who truly love Me.

 

        ...."It will come about at the end of seventy years that the LORD will visit Tyre. Then she will go back to her harlot's wages and will play the harlot with all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. Her gain and her harlot's wages will be set apart to the LORD; it will not be stored up or hoarded, but her gain will become sufficient food and choice attire for those who dwell in the presence of the LORD".... Isaiah 23:17-18 NASB

 

        ...."Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run. For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay. Behold, as for the proud one, His soul is not right within him; But the righteous will live by his faith".... Habakkuk 2:2-4 NASB

 

        ...."It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous, so as to make ready a people prepared for the Lord".... Luke 1:17 NASB

 

        ...."He will revive us after two days; He will raise us up on the third day, that we may live before Him. So let us know, let us press on to know the LORD. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain watering the earth".... Hosea 6:2-3 NASB

 

"Prepared"- properly expectant, organized, or equipped; ready;

 

        The one thing about God's "suddenlies" is that they tend to come [at least "seemingly"] "out of nowhere" so the best course of action is always for one to just simply find themselves "prepared" on every front. Then, no matter how things manifest [unfold] it will just be a matter of one simply taking the next step in obedience without having to make very many [if any]adjustments at all. This especially applies to the time one spends in the morning in the "inner chamber" [the secret place of God's Presence]- as this is the one time of day [early morning] that has far less opportunity to be disrupted in the normal course of things and, therefore, allows one to remain "consistent" in their quality time with the Father and His Word on a daily basis.

 

        One area wherein there will be many "suddenlies" in this new season is in the realm of Kingdom-finances - which is an area of "equipping" [at least in its "fullness"] that, up until this time, has been awaiting both the preparation and advent of a holy people [a people who are wholly given to God and His highest purposes].

 

        In "knowing" [having a "revelation" of the spiritual reality] that the aforementioned Kingdom-finances [in the hands of a righteous people] are simply an "extension" [increase, continuation] of Jesus' authority THEN we can see clearly that the Glorious Church entering into the "fullness" of Her authority in Christ in this final hour and the Kingdom-finances coming forth in "full" manifestation run hand in hand.

 

                                                          To be continued

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You  that, in this most glorious hour, You are placing Your Kingdom-finances into the hands of those who will diligently set about establishing the true Kingdom- ministries - and the true spiritual environments throughout the earth that are their spontaneous fruit. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
