Faith Isn’t A Matter Of Believing

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Faith isn't a matter of believing what you read. Believing what you read isn't how your heart is healed and it isn't relationship with Him. Faith is believing Him (and to believe Him you have to know Him). This is Him speaking to your heart to reveal His heart, changing you and bringing you to Him. Faith is Him working in you. Trust is yours. Faith is His. That is how you are healed.

I Am Convinced Of His Faithfulness

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I am convinced of His faithfulness. What He is faithful to is something I have learned recently.

 

This happened when I desired to be delivered from what humbled me. He assured me what humbled me was His gift to me. He said it was His will for me, and it would teach me the value humility above all He would give me.

 

Before I learned to value humility, it was my appearance I valued, and I that is what I wanted Him to restore to me. I considered my appearance to be in great need of healing. He considered my perspective to be what was in need of great healing, so He gave me humility.

 

Humility is not seeking self, it is seeking Him, not seeing self, but seeing Him. He protects us from the wants and desires of self so nothing in this life can tempt us away from Him.

 

The humble don't desire to see themselves in this life, and they don't desire to see their own way. What the humble desire is His heart and His presence and seeing Him is how He keeps them with Him. What He is faithful to as He humbles our heart is His love for us, and being humbled, we can see this of Him.

In Your Life

By Kathy Mote

 

In your life, God isn't controlling, He is protective, but as He moves in the Earth, He is decisive. He is holding you close to His heart as He brings about many changes. You are hidden safely in the folds of His garment as He keeps you from the great shaking. This is the day we are in. He has already brought into your heart the many changes He will bring to those who are without Him. For them, He will come in the midst of a great storm, but He deals gently with the surrendered.

When My Daughter Was In Second Grade

By Kathy Mote

 

When my daughter was in second grade, my husband lost his job. So I packed up my cleaning supplies and cleaned houses to make ends meet while he looked for another job.

 

Those were the not so good old days when his behavior often caused consequence for my children and I. In those days I learned to gather my wits and my children in my arms and trust the Lord with all my heart.

 

We were fairly new to the area, and my little second grader was told to wait at the school doors to be picked up when school let out. One day I was running late, and I asked my husband to pick our little daughter up.

 

Two hours after school let out I finally arrived at home. Where is our daughter?? Still waiting at school. He had forgotten to pick her up.

 

My heart flew into a panic. I rushed to the school to gather her into my arms. I cried the whole way, barely able to hear the Lord as He told me she was safe from harm.

 

As I pulled up she got into the car. She asked me if I was ok. I must have looked a mess. But she wasn't afraid, she said, because Jesus spoke to her and told her it would be alright. She said He waited with her.

 

That night as I went to bed, I thought about how I had lost my mind. Well, what I did was I lost sight of His. When we consider the consequence of not being kept by Him, we have taken our eyes off of Him. We lose sight of His heart by not trusting His faithfulness to keep us there. The Lord said someone needs to hear this.♥️

Those In The Word

By Kathy Mote

 

Those in the world speak with such hatred against us because our beliefs in God challenge their desire to rebel against Him. Their belief that they are a god unto themselves is the core of their rebellion.

 

The human rights they respect are those that rise against Him. This is why they see our respect for Him as disrespect for them. If our thinking hadn't challenged their perceived right to rule, they would have ignored us.

 

We would be wise not to despise them. They are here to refine us. Their actions are prompting world events, and this is important. It is one thing to hate rebellion, and quite another to hate the rebellious.

I Know

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

I know what it is to stand and watch as my enemies are scattered from before me. I know what it is to see the Lord give to my enemy the very portion my enemy desired for me. I know what it is to stand before the Lord as the enemy came gunning for me. It was in those moments of the fiercest warfare in my life that the Lord revealed His faithfulness to His will for me.

 

In the years since, I have thought back on this often. My heart warms at the memory of how, against all odds, His strong arm set me above my enemy as He delivered me. But that is not what gives me peace as His enemy now comes to taunt me. As I leave His will for me up to Him, His presence brings a palpable peace that lives and breathes inside me.

We Were Never Meant To Fully Understand

By Kathy Mote

 

We were never meant to fully understand God in our mind, nor were we invited to accept Him in our head. Our minds are not a big enough screen to show us the whole picture of Who He is.

 

He meant for us to know Him in our heart. That is why we don't know Him by reading about Him or reading what He said. You can't know anyone like that.

 

He made our heart to know and receive Him and to enter into relationship with Him. How else would we become one with Him. Our hearts were made for Him.

 

Knowing Him is far more personal and real than knowing about Him. Knowing about Him doesn't bring us to Him. Only Him revealing His love to us can bring us to Him, and He does this to heal our heart.

I Had A Friend Long Ago

By Kathy Mote

 

I had a friend long ago who thought very differently than I did. People were either good or bad, right or wrong, or true or false to her thinking, but her thinking didn't leave any room for the Lord or what He was doing in them.

 

I would often become frustrated with her, even though I loved her dearly as a friend. What helped me so much was when the Lord showed me my own heart in this. In my own heart I neglected to trust Him for what He would do in her.

 

He told me that He was not finished with all He would do in her heart, something that was between Him and her. So the small, hard and shriveled heart I thought I saw in her was also how my heart responded to her.

 

As He revealed His heart to me, it broke my heart to see where my heart had been. I had judged the work of His hands, and to do this I had looked down at her and not up at Him. This is something I will never ever do again.

We Pour Over The Scriptures

By Kathy Mote

 

We pour over the scriptures, thinking that to understand them is to receive what is written in them. The scriptures weren't meant to be practiced, they were meant to lead us to Him. The Life and love and abundance and provision we seek is in His presence.

 

We will only know abundant Life in our fellowship with Him because abundant Life is living, being and abiding IN Him. All the fancy words and phrases that describe what we desire from Him don't come close to the Truth, that love, peace, provision, and all that is beautiful is Him and the Life that is Him. He created us. Our identity is in Him.

The Departure From Sound Doctrine

By Prophet Ken Dewey

 

 

A Prophecy concerning the Characteristic of the End Times, found first In the Holy Scriptures.

 

In the Word of God we find a very real and important warning for the End Times.

 

This Word is speaking about “Certain characteristic [a distinguishing trait, quality, or property] to look for and be identified as Prophetic Declaration of those days.

 

The “Word” I speak of is [Departure from Sound Doctrine], which will take many away from the Truth and will cause great harm to the Body of Christ and the advancement of the Gospel Message.

 

Sound Doctrine

 

“2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”2 Timothy 4:2-4.

 

According to the above verse 3, it was Prophesied that a Day was coming when Sound Doctrine will not be tolerated.

 

The Word used to describe this time was: “they will NOT ENDURE” Sound Doctrine, but they would turn away from the SOUND and substitute Teachings that please the Lust of Men.

 

These Men Made Words will PLEASE THE FLESH, and many will not even wish to go to a Church or to hear a Preacher preach that does preach Sound Doctrine.

 

Men will even go so far as to [hire] “heap to themselves” TEACHERS to TICKLE THEIR EARS. In order for this sort of discrimination to be made one need only that TEACHERS WILL BE QUESTIONED, EXAMINED, AND QUIZZED as to what they Believe.

 

If such a Teacher is found to hold to SOUND DOCTRINE OF THE WORD OF GOD, that Teacher will be “Rejected”, spurned, or turned away.

 

The Dictionary definition of the word “Quizzed” is:

 

To question (someone), especially closely or repeatedly: “His searching questions as he quizzed me.”

 

To test the knowledge of by posing questions.

 

Archaic To poke fun at; mock.

 

It then is recognized that [Deliberate Questioning and Judging] will take place to discover “Exactly” what the Preacher Believes and Teaches.

 

I suggest to you that this is already taking place in most all places today.

 

Today, any Preacher who preaches “Sound Bible Doctrine” will be labeled and given a Name “LEGALISTIC”.

 

He will be shunned, rejected and talked about in a derogatory manner. Many of those who label the Bible Preacher are just the opposite: they preach a Legalistic Message but do not back it up with Scripture.

 

The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy [in the Inspired Scriptures added to the Cannon of Scripture] that Timothy should,

 

Preach the Word of God.

That simply means the Preacher should “use the Bible Text” and preach that clearly.

To be “Instant, in season or out of season” in preaching the Word.

In other words [at all times of preaching] it would be most advisable to “preach the Bible”, and not to take their text from any other source.

To be exact, there would NEVER BE A TIME when the Preacher should depart from using Sound Bible Scriptures in his Message.

The Preacher should be one who: Reprove, Rebuke, and Exhort, by using the Word of God, namely SCRIPTURES TAKEN FROM THE BIBLE.

I suggest this sort of Preaching or Teaching will not be accepted in many places today, and many Churches will not tolerate such Preaching any more.

 

The sort of Preaching or Teaching men desire is not taken direct from the Scriptures, but from Men’s opinions [or religious teachings of the Bible].

 

When Men do throw out the Word of God and cease preaching it as Doctrine, then The Holy Spirit which wrote the Scriptures is offended and quenched.

 

This is a most clear definition of today’s preaching: “Spiritless Preaching”.

 

Men have learned how to have Church without The Holy Spirit. The very Words that The Holy Spirit taught are now questioned and set aside. Modern Preaching is even offensive to The Holy Spirit.

Let Me

By Lion Bites

 

I hear the Spirit of The LORD say, “My Child, I see you shake when you hear of revival and harvest because you are so tired. You’re tired of fighting to hold it all together. Tired of struggling to get through a day, never mind a week. But that’s because you are trying to do it on your own.

 

Let Me take that burden off you right now; let Me be your source. Let’s go through each day, moment by moment together. Take My Hand and let Me lead the way. Only go where I go! Only go when I go! Only listen to My Voice. Trust Me! Lay that burden down at My Feet, and I will handle it. Then focus on Me and what I tell you.”

 

Activation: Take some time today to lay your burdens down at Jesus’ feet and ask for forgiveness for trying to do it on your own. Rest in His Presence and build up your faith.

 

Jude 1:20-21 NASB “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking forward to the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.”

Philippians 1:6 NKJV “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

 

14 April 2021. Salt and Light

 

“You are the salt and light on your street, in your neighborhood, at your workplace, your school and in your nation! You are the one who preserves and demonstrates My Life! Yet, it requires your participation. Salt is only useful when it is used. Light is only evident when it is uncovered.

 

So, let your light shine! Sprinkle salt into conversations, social media and all your interactions. Let your light be uncovered! Yes, it might cost you something; give it anyway! It cost Me everything, and I ask you to follow My Example.

 

Let your light shine. Dare to stand out as one who is from My Kingdom and not of this earthly kingdom. Sprinkle Kingdom Thoughts, Words and Deeds in order to push back the decay and death that is creeping upon the earth. Be brave! I AM with you!”

 

Matthew 5:13-16 NIV ““You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Fighting the Good Fight

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

I heard, “Get up, My Warrior. Arise and keep fighting the good fight of FAITH.

 

Your BIRTHRIGHT and your DOUBLE PORTION is SET IN STONE, therefore NO weapon formed against you shall prosper for this is your heritage and your Vindication is of Me!”

 

“What weapon has been formed against you, Beloved? Fear not. I have put My Spirit in your heart to combat EVERY lie of the enemy.

 

I AM your Helper. I have declared, and it is SET IN STONE, My Child, that NO weapon formed against you shall prosper.

 

My Word is the Rock on which you stand. I AM the Word and I AM that Rock. You shall not be moved, My Child.

 

My Word is Truth. My Word does not change and I do not change. I AM the same, yesterday and forever.

 

I AM Yahweh; I AM He who helps you; therefore you shall not be confounded or disgraced: therefore set your face like flint, and you shall not be ashamed.

 

I AM He who has justified you. I AM the One who vindicates you. Who will dare contend with you when you realize who you are, My Warrior?

 

I contend with those who contend with you. The devil is a liar. Let Us stand together in the Power of MY Might.

 

You shall not be moved because MY TRUTH is your shield and buckler. Speak to that mountain. Hold up your Shield of Faith.

 

You shall be able to quench ALL the fiery darts of the enemy. Not some, but ALL. His LIES are the fiery darts, Beloved Warrior of Mine. Fear and doubt come to destroy, but your FAITH is ALWAYS rewarded with VICTORY!

 

You shall reject and deflect EVERY LIE by faith and by My Word. Yes, My Child, let your faith roar louder than your fear. So let US go forth as Warriors, I AM stirring up your ZEAL.

 

I make you as BOLD as a Lion. You shall shout unto your God with the voice of triumph! For I AM your Shield, and your exceedingly great Reward.

 

Your God goes forth as THE Mighty One, I ROAR in triumph over the enemy!

 

Keep standing, My Warrior! I AM the Precious Cornerstone on which you stand. You shall not be moved.

 

Return to the Stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.

 

This is your Birthright and your vindication is of Me!”

 

FLINT : Strong’s Hebrew 2496, from chalam (in the sense of hardness); flint — flint(-y), rock.

 

SET IN STONE : it is completely decided and cannot be changed; Cannot be altered, permanent; unbendable, determined, unshakable, relentless, standing pat, insistent, firm, resolute, fixed.

 

BIRTHRIGHT: Hebrew: (bekorah) has to do with both position and inheritance. By birthright, the firstborn son inherited the leadership of the family and the JUDICIAL AUTHORITY OF HIS FATHER. Deuteronomy 21:17 states that he was also entitled to a double portion of the paternal inheritance.

 

Bible Verses

 

“Because the Lord GOD helps Me, I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set My face like FLINT, and I know that I will not be put to shame. The One who vindicates Me is near. Who will dare to contend with Me? Let us confront each other! Who has a case against Me ? Let him approach Me!” Isaiah 50:7-8.

 

“The LORD is a Warrior; Yahweh is His name.” Exodus 15:3.

 

“The LORD shall go forth as a Mighty Man, He shall stir up jealousy like a Man of War: He shall cry, yea, roar; He shall prevail against His enemies.” Isaiah 42:13 KJV.

 

“The LORD goes forth like a Mighty One; He stirs up His zeal like a warrior. He shouts; yes, He roars in triumph over His enemies!” Isaiah 42:13 BSB.

 

“For I proclaim the name of the Lord: ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He.” Deuteronomy 32:3-4.

 

“For it stands in Scripture: “See, I lay in Zion a stone, a chosen and precious cornerstone; and the one who believes in Him will never be put to shame.”” 1 Peter 2:6.

 

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD.” Isaiah 54:17.

 

“Indeed, this is what the LORD says: “Even the captives of the mighty will be taken away, and the plunder of the tyrant will be retrieved; I will contend with those who contend with you, and I will save your children.” Isaiah 49:25.

 

“After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”” Genesis 15:1.

 

“Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare That I will restore double to you.” Zechariah 9:12.

 

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

 

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:10-17.

The LORD’s Voice Will Never Be Silenced

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

“My light will never go out,” says The LORD.

 

“My Voice will never be silenced. My Wisdom will never be outdated and is unsurpassed. The enemy is always at a disadvantage, for I AM the SOVEREIGN.

 

“I have given you spiritual authority, and fully equipped you to conquer. You have spiritual gifts that are unsurpassed. You cannot be defeated, for earthly weapons cannot match what I have given you.

 

“Use them, for they are unfailing, and you cannot fail when you take them up and engage in the warfare that is spiritual,” says The LORD.

 

“The enemy has ordered you to be silent, but I have commanded you to SPEAK,” says The LORD.

 

“The enemy desires to shut you in, but I have commanded you to COME out of obscurity, and be SEEN. The enemy has endeavored to set limits upon you, but I have emboldened you to shake off the bands and freely do the work that I have called you to do.

 

“For I AM with you, and although the battle rages, the enemy breathes out threatening insults, and endeavors to intimidate you, I have given you the power of MY SPIRIT, My sword, My powerful, undefeatable weapons, and you are to stand, fight, overcome, and conquer, and expand My Kingdom on earth as it in heaven, by My SPIRIT,” says The LORD.

How God Feels about Us

By Greg Laurie

 

           

LISTEN 

 

 

 

“May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.”

—Numbers 6:24–26

 

 

 

Sometimes we might wonder whether God is really paying attention. Does He know what we’re going through? Has this caught Him by surprise? Absolutely not. He knows all about it.

 

I wonder if Joseph ever felt as though the Lord had forgotten about him. His brothers sold him into slavery for no good reason. Then he was brought to Egypt, where a man named Potiphar, who was sort of like the head of the Secret Service for the pharaoh, bought him. Potiphar took him into his house, where his crazy wife tried to seduce Joseph.

 

He resisted her advances, but one day she had everyone leave the house. Then she called Joseph over, pulled him down in her bed, and effectively said, “Have sexual relations with me.”

 

Joseph ran away, but Potiphar’s wife falsely accused him of rape. So Joseph went to prison. As he sat there, how easily he could have thought that God had surely forgotten about him. The reality was that God was preparing Joseph for a great work that was yet in his future. He would elevate Joseph into a place of great influence.

 

In Numbers 6 we find a special blessing that God instructed the priests to pronounce over the people: “May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace” (verses 24–26 NLT).

 

These words show us who God is and how He feels toward us. The Lord is watching us. We have His full attention. He’s attentive to us. He’s aware of what we’re going through.

 

God knows what you’re experiencing today. He’s in control of your life right now. And even though it may seem as though He isn’t watching, He actually is.

"Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things"

By Dutch Sheets & Quin Sherrer with Jamie Buckingham

 

 

From Dutch Sheets: The revival God is about to bring will require the efforts of all Believers. Holy Spirit "added" thousands of Believers to the Church in Acts chapters 1-5. However, the word used to describe their growth changed to "multiplied" from chapter 6 onward. What caused this? Ministry shifted from the apostles only to including deacons and Believers in general. Holy Spirit wants to use us all. Our dear friend, Quin Sherrer, speaks powerfully of this:

 

"Shadow Ministry" by Quin Sherrer with Jamie Buckingham

 

By inviting God's abiding presence to overshadow and help us, we can make a difference in the lives of many people. Who knows when you may discover a result of your "shadow ministry" – one that may totally surprise you. You go along doing what you always do. Then boom! Someone tells you how your life impacted him or her, and you had no idea.

 

Several decades ago my writing mentor, Jamie Buckingham, author of more than 40 books, was the keynote speaker at an Aglow International conference; he told this unusual story about a trip he'd made some years earlier to the Sinai Peninsula for book research. He called the book "Shadow Ministry."

 

When Jamie had reached the summit of Mt. Sinai – almost 7,500 feet – he walked over to a white man who was standing around with about a dozen Aborigines and inquired about them. The man said he was a missionary accompanying these men – the first Aboriginal tribe from Papua New Guinea who had ever come to Israel; they came to see where Jesus walked and to Mt. Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments. These Aborigines wanted to discover if the places mentioned in the Bible were real or not and would take their report back.

 

They had worked to earn the money to come and had elected these representatives to make this trip. Through this missionary's ministry in New Guinea, there were 700 to 800 Aborigines in this tribal area who now knew Jesus Christ as Lord. He told Jamie he had been in a motorcycle gang in Australia when he read a book by an American author, received the Lord, and was eventually led to going as a missionary to Papua New Guinea.

 

"You wouldn't know an author by the name of Jamie Buckingham, would you?" he asked.

 

"You aren't going to believe what I am about to tell you: I am Jamie Buckingham," he replied.

 

There was much rejoicing and handshaking. The missionary took Jamie over and introduced him to these people he'd won to Jesus. The 83-year-old chief of the tribe, who had tattoos across his cheeks, looked up into Jamie's face and said, "Thank you for casting your shadow over us."

 

Jamie continued his story. "I had sat in my office in Florida with my Bible open. In solitude, I wrote words. Someone gifted in editing worked on it, passed it to another who printed it, then someone else gifted in distribution got it. And the shadow went up across the world, ending up in New Guinea." Notice, it took people with various talents to get the book into the hands of a gang member in Australia, who then became a missionary for Christ.  

 

Jamie challenged us saying, "I wonder if so much that we think is insignificant may not be the most important thing in God's eyes. The Kingdom of God is carried on the shoulders of people who occupy their shadow ministry."1

 

The Bible reference the chief referred to came from Acts 5:15; it's about Believers who laid their sick on beds and mats so that when Peter passed by, at least his shadow might fall on them. All of them were healed. Earlier in Christ's ministry, He took Peter, James, and John on a high mountain where He was transfigured, and a cloud formed, overshadowing them. Father God spoke from that cloud saying, "This is my beloved Son, listen to Him" (Mark 9:7 NASB).

 

"Overshadowed" by Dutch Sheets

 

I explain these two references in my book, "Intercessory Prayer," along with a third passage:

 

Our third example of Holy Spirit's bringing forth life as He hovered or brooded over is found in Luke 1:35, the conception of Christ in Mary. The angel of the Lord came to Mary telling her that she would bear a child. She responded by asking, "'...How can this be since I am a virgin?'" (v. 34).

 

The answer was this: "Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you." "Overshadow" is the Greek word "episkiazo," which means "to cast a shade upon; to envelope in a haze of brilliancy; to invest with supernatural influence." It is, in some ways, a counterpart for the Hebrew word "rachaph," translated "moving" or "hovering" in Genesis 1:2. Thayer says it is used "of the Holy Spirit exerting creative energy upon the womb of the Virgin Mary and impregnating it."

 

The word is only used three times in the New Testament. At the transfiguration of Jesus in Matthew 17:5, the passage says that the cloud of the Lord "overshadowed" them. It is also used in Acts 5:15 when people were trying to get close to Peter – in his shadow – that they might be healed. Have you ever wondered how Peter's shadow could heal someone? It didn't. What was actually happening was that Holy Spirit was "moving" out from Peter – hovering – and when individuals stepped into the cloud or overshadowing, they were healed.2

 

"An Invitation to 'Cast Your Shadow'" by Quin Sherrer

 

Quin goes on to say:

 

When we invite the Lord to overshadow us, like Peter, we can cast a shadow – have supernatural influence – on those with whom we have encounters or connections. To cast is to "send out, radiate, hurl, fling, give off." Let's do it!

 

Maybe you are saying, "I can't do what a well-known author did." No, but you have your own sphere of influence. Years ago, a teenager shared on a Sunday night at our church, teaching us a big lesson. She had been in a juvenile detention facility in our town, she explained, but on weekends had been allowed to visit the homes of our various church families. Now, she was rehabilitated and going home.

 

"You fed me, clothed me, loved me, and best of all, you introduced me to Jesus. I am so thrilled with what Jesus has done for me. I want to thank Him. But you are Him here, so I will thank you," she said. "You are Him here," she repeated over and over, as her index finger pointed out across the congregation.

 

Going home, indeed. She was going home to her parents. One day, she will go to an eternal home with her heavenly Father...because they cast their shadow.

 

Our pastor had dozens of plaques made that read "You Are Him Here" for those of us who wanted to display them in our homes as a reminder that we are Jesus' hands extended to anyone who knocks on our door.  

 

"Christ has no hands on Earth but yours. No feet on Earth but yours, no eyes of compassion on Earth but yours. He has no body on Earth but yours," said Teresa of Avila, a 16th-century nun.

 

Who are we influencing for God? Each of us casts a shadow by the way we live our lives, what we say, how we act toward those with whom we have connections. Someone, somewhere is watching, listening, observing.

 

The great harvest of souls expected soon in America could happen over backyard fences. For years, my New York City friend Janet talked to Sue about Jesus that way. Sue said she wasn't ready to make a commitment. But on the September night, after the Twin Towers fell, she called Janet. She was ready. Janet led her in prayer and discipled her. Soon their weekly prayer meetings included other neighborhood women. I do not think it takes a tragedy to win others to Christ. We can just stay faithful to Holy Spirit's leading and, in time, our shadow ministry will be fruitful.

 

In closing, let's hear Jamie Buckingham's take-away. "You look back across your life and you will remember numbers of people who have let their shadow fall on you. Because of that, you are who you are today." I want to encourage you. Your shadow, perhaps unbeknownst to you, is falling on a number of other people. God is healing and God is blessing because your face is toward Jesus. Ordinary people, doing extraordinary things, through God, for God.

 

"Live under the protection of God Most High and stay in the shadow of God All-Powerful." (Psalm 91:1 CEV)

 

Prayer with Dutch Sheets:

 

Lord, overshadow me with Your presence. Help me, in turn, cast my shadow over those whom You choose. Give me creative ways to do this when there are still areas where social distancing is in effect. Help me not be bashful or intimidated, but give me boldness to speak and act as Holy Spirit guides me.

 

Just as You did with Mary, hover over me until I carry Your presence. I want to radiate the power of Holy Spirit in such strength that lives are changed and Christ is formed in people. Remind us daily, Father, that we are Him here.

 

I ask in Jesus' name. Amen.

 

Our decree: I will be conscious of my influence for Jesus wherever I go.

Refuse To Be Discouraged

By Russ Walden

 

 

 

The Father says today, refuse to be discouraged. Never let discouragement hold you back. Discouragement is insidious in its leavening influence. Reject every morose and negative thought. Fear not. Believe only. If you refuse to accept discouragement, then the prince of this world comes and will find nothing in your heart that he can take advantage of.

 

Courage and trust in who I AM and what I AM doing in your life makes you impervious to the strategy of the enemy to hold you back or keep you down. I say to you again — be encouraged and of a good courage. The courage of heaven is not vain bluster. The courage of heaven is the preamble to the breakthrough you have petitioned Me for in your situation.

 

Cultivate confidence. Dig down into the fallow ground of your heart and mind to break up the clogs of past disappointment. Take My promises like precious seed and plant them in your innermost being. I will cause you to have the seed / fruit / harvest of My promise as though in a day. I will bring the 100-fold return of seed / fruit / harvest into your life when all others are faltering and failing.

 

I have not called you to a place of blistering failure or downturn. I have commissioned you and ordained that you go out and boldly receive all that the Cross affords you. I say to you this day that you are a receiver and a beneficiary of My promises, for this is the purpose why I came into the world — to raise you up as My beloved child and to demonstrate My Goodness and My Character in your life.

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

 

 

THE "PROMISED LAND" IS A TYPE AND SYMBOL OF THE KINGDOM

                                                                   

Words of prophecy:

 

*____"Self-righteousness" [spiritual pride] always "appears" to be [has the appearance before others of] doing or saying [seeking after] the right thing but, in reality, its underlying motivation is ALWAYS the exaltation of "self" over others - and the furthering [promoting] of its "own" agendas [instead of My Will].

 

        ...."For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven".... Matthew 5:20 NASB

 

        ...."Departing from there, He went into their synagogue. And a man was there whose hand was withered. And they questioned Jesus, asking, 'Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?' - so that they might accuse Him. And He said to them, 'What man is there among you who has a sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not take hold of it and lift it out? 'How much more valuable then is a man than a sheep!

 

So then, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.' Then He said to the man, 'Stretch out your hand!' He stretched it out, and it was restored to normal, like the other. But the Pharisees went out and conspired against Him, as to how they might destroy Him. But Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. Many followed Him, and He healed them all".... Matthew 12:9-15 NASB

 

        ...."He [Jesus] began saying to His disciples first of all, 'Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known'".... Luke 12:1a-2 NASB

 

        ...."But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders [hypocrites]! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces; for you neither enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who are about to go in to do so".... Matthew 23:13 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven [will enter.] Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you [intimately];depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness'".... Matthew 7:21-23 NASB

 

        ...."Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts, as [happened] in the rebellion [of Israel] and their provocation and embitterment [of Me] in the day of testing in the wilderness, Where your fathers tried [My patience] and tested [My forbearance] and found I stood their test, and they saw My works for forty years. And so I was provoked (displeased and sorely grieved) with that generation, and said, They always err and are led astray in their hearts, and they have not perceived or recognized My ways and become progressively better and more experimentally and intimately acquainted with them.

 

Accordingly, I swore in My wrath and indignation, They shall not enter into My rest. [Ps. 95:7-11.] [Therefore beware] brethren, take care, lest there be in any one of you a wicked, unbelieving heart [which refuses to cleave to, trust in, and rely on Him], leading you to turn away and desert or stand aloof from the living God. But instead warn (admonish, urge, and encourage) one another every day, as long as it is called Today, that none of you may be hardened [into settled rebellion] by the deceitfulness of sin [by the fraudulence, the stratagem, the trickery which the delusive glamor of his sin may play on him].

 

For we have become fellows with Christ (the Messiah) and share in all He has for us, if only we hold our first newborn confidence and original assured expectation [in virtue of which we are believers] firm and unshaken to the end. Then while it is [still] called Today, if you would hear His voice and when you hear it, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion [in the desert, when the people provoked and irritated and embittered God against them]. [Ps. 95:7, 8.] For who were they who heard and yet were rebellious and provoked [Him]? Was it not all those who came out of Egypt led by Moses? And with whom was He irritated and provoked and grieved for forty years?

 

Was it not with those who sinned, whose dismembered bodies were strewn and left in the desert? And to whom did He swear that they should not enter His rest, but to those who disobeyed [who had not listened to His word and who refused to be compliant or be persuaded]? So we see that they were not able to enter [into His rest], because of their unwillingness to adhere to and trust in and rely on God [unbelief had shut them out]. [Num. 14:1-35.]".... Hebrews 3:7-19 The Amplified Translation

 

____The "promised land" is a type and symbol of the Kingdom - as evidenced by the people of Israel [in Moses' day]. Whose failure to enter into the "promised land" was the same as those in this hour who, because of their penchant for the "law" [legalism], love of the world, self-righteousness and unbelief [mistrust], are not able to enter into the Kingdom - and the "fullness" of their precious inheritance [salvation] that awaits therein [lies within that spiritual positioning].

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a Kingdom-people - a people who are found walking in the fullness of our precious inheritance, in Christ. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

To Know His Heart

The Deeper Your Surrender

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The deeper your surrender, the more you are aware of Him. The more closely you follow Him, the closer you are to Him. I would like to share my thoughts on the two words we use to describe our interactions with Him, surrender and obedience.

 

After living in His presence, I am finding them inadequate to describe our interaction with Him.

 

What we surrender is our ignorance of Him as He reveals His heart to us. We are in awe of Him so we hang on every word He says. This is why we follow after Him, our hearts being filled by Him. He is our Daddy God. He reveals this as He calls us His child.

 

In the reality of walking with Him, the words surrender and obedience just don't do justice to the Life He gives, or the soul deep peace of knowing Him.

 

He surrounds us, He protects us, He keeps us from harm. We are seated on the palm of His hand. He fills us and satisfies us with His desire for our life, and in His presence, He brings His will into our heart. What we give up is our place in darkness and torment as we are taken up into His arms.

 

So to say we surrender is to say we open our heart to Him. To say we obey is to say we act on our trust. In His presence, we are filled with all His desire, and that is how He provides for us.

The Lord Said

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord said pride is the will to live, to rise up and defend our thoughts of ourself. This is not our condition when we see Him, or what we do as we are taken in His arms. It is in His presence that we know Him, and knowing Him, we trust in Him. It is in His presence we are given Life. We are continually filled with the joy of it, and we are continually grateful to Him.

For Some Time Now

By Kathy Mote

 

For some time now, I have 'released' His Word on another social media. This is what He said to my heart. I hoped each day for more and more people to come hear His Word, but that is not how one changes the world.

 

Something the Lord said to me today released my heart and filled me with joy. He said, I bring my Word to pass by releasing it in your heart. Then I am faithful to bring My will to pass in the Earth.

 

It's not what you say, and it doesn't matter how many hear you. What you are able to do would never be enough. By My Spirit, they will hear Me as My Word is released into every heart.

 

I promised My Kingdom would come. I established that promise in Isaiah's, in Abraham's, and in Mary's hearts to name a few, then I brought My Word to pass as I promised I would. Each time I came and made a promise, I kept My Word Myself. No one else can do this. What is promised, I fulfill.

 

This word is for all those who hold His promises dear. What He has established in your heart is His promise, and that is His to fulfill. We receive by trusting Him. Words cannot describe the joy this brings.

A Word

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

A word the Lord has asked me to share for those who have perceived themselves to be rejected in recent years. This is about the ministry circles you thought you should be a part of, but were not welcome in.

 

You were not rejected, you were ejected, and it was the hand of the Lord that did this. He removed you to set you aside and hide you from the judgment that is to come. He kept you safe as He humbled your heart.

 

You are not called to endure the more difficult judgment those who rejected you will see in the days to come. He is coming quickly to humble their heart.

 

But you, precious one, have a different heart, and you have been called to walk your path alone with Him. This is precious to Him, and He is enjoying it. As you see how close He is to you, you will know how precious you are to Him. You are not without Him, and you are not alone.

Devotional: God’s Medicine Bottle

By Derek Prince

 

 

 

Proverbs 4:20–22

 

My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.     KJV

 

For many years I have known those three verses from the fourth chapter of Proverbs as “God’s medicine bottle.” God declares that if we will rightly receive His words and His sayings, they will be life to us and health to all our flesh. The marginal translation for the word that is translated “health” is “medicine.” That’s why I say it’s “God’s medicine bottle.”

 

And God says His medicine will provide us with health in all our flesh. In every area of our physical body it will provide health, but remember, the directions are on the bottle. The medicine only works if you take it according to the directions. There are four directions.

 

First, attend to God’s word.

 

Second, incline or bow down your ear and listen to His sayings.

Third, let them not depart from your eyes, keep them before your eyes continually.

 

And fourth, let them settle and abide in the midst of your heart.

If you take the Word of God according to those fourfold directions, you will find, as I did many years ago, that God’s medicine bottle produces just the results that He claims. It brings life and health to all our flesh. I found that after a year on end in a hospital when doctors couldn’t heal me, God’s medicine did the job.

Get Ready! The King is Coming!

By Priscilla Van Sutphin

 

 

I was listening to the “Healing Song” by Andre LeFebvre and as I listened, I felt like dancing, like something stirring in my soul…

 

 

So I played it over and over. And I heard His Voice…

 

[ Sometimes when He wants to romance, He speaks in poetry… ]

 

Get ready to rejoice oh Daughter of Zion,

For the King is coming, to dwell in your midst.

 

Break out the tambourines. Sound the trumpets.

Strum the harp and beat the drums.

For on the wings of the wind He comes.

 

The trees are singing, the flowers are bending down.

[As I heard this could see it in a vision]

All for the King, because He is coming to town.

Rejoice for Your King comes to you suddenly!

 

The world has it’s new king in the wings, but you have yours,

Oh daughter of Zion REJOICE! REJOICE!

 

Sing, Sing a new song, dance a new dance!

For in His steed is even a new prance!

 

Over the waters and over the seas, a new song you hear

It’s the sound of war, the sounds of tumult.

 

But even in the fray, you will proclaim a new day!

 

The King arises with Healing in His wings,

Bones will be set, alignments healed, cancer wanes, and infections disappear.

 

Chains are broken, can you hear?

The sound of chains and shackles falling to the ground.

 

Fear screams out and heaviness goes running,

It’s a wonderful, wonderful sound!

 

GRACE, Grace, wonderful grace flows from the throne,

While the worldly on and on they drone…

 

Ever clamoring for things that don’t fill.

They will get their fill, for you reap what you sow.

 

But for all who love Me, I have a surprise.

They will be filled with just one glimpse of My eyes!

 

As darkness grows, LIGHT descends, blazing glory

Transforming the saints, making them bold,

Like the apostles and saints of old.

 

Fine tuned instruments, that I will play with My Hands,

Bringing in harvest, subduing nations

 

Taking their stands, alongside the King of Glory

Bringing an end to the story of stories!

 

Lo, the winds have changed, stand up and sing!

No more fear, no more hiding in a corner

Fear and self doubt cast out, there will be a new order!

 

The world has theirs, but I also have Mine.

And all is set for the culmination of time.

Untie the bands that have tied up the eagles!

 

And undo the cords that have bound the lions,

Loose them now to fight in the struggle.”

Time for 360° Vision!

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

“Beloved, It is the time of 360 degree vision for My People.

 

Nothing shall be hidden from you as you keep your eyes upon Me. There shall be no blind spots. The enemy’s plans shall be exposed.

 

This is the Time of the Seers, born of the Spirit and not the flesh. There has been a process of maturing, My Child.

 

I declare to you that you are ready. I AM stirring the Nest and you are about to come forth in all of My Glory. Those who wait upon The LORD shall renew your strength. You shall rise up on Wings as Eagles.

 

You have heard, “Birds of a feather flock together.” You are of MY Feather, My Child. Under My Wings you find refuge; My faithfulness is your shield and rampart.

 

I AM bringing others of the same Spirit beside you for such a time as this. You were never meant to fly solo forever, Dear One.

 

Now My War Eagles shall fly in formation to confuse and terrify the enemy. The Season of the Gathering is here.

 

When I speak a Word, it goes out to accomplish it’s purpose and then it returns to Me through your mouth. It is a Divine Circle. Do you see?

 

My Word is Eternal. It is always working. My Word cannot lie. There is no beginning and there will be no end for I AM the Eternal Father, the Everlasting God, your Savior.

 

The eternal Kingdom is one of Extreme Vision. I AM He who sees the end from the beginning. I AM before you and behind you. I have you surrounded.

 

You shall fly in My Circle of Light. You fly upon My Breath, My Ruach. The Wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes.

 

So is everyone who is born of the Spirit. Fear not, My Child. You are BEYOND the enemy’s grasp and ABOVE his field of vision. I have you covered. It is your time, Beloved.

 

The countdown has begun. It is time for Take Off! FLY in the Power of My Might upon the Winds of the Spirit and your eyes shall see enemy’s movements and you shall not be deceived and I shall cause the enemy to fall before you.

 

Unto you that fear My Name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and you shall tread down the wicked ones; they shall be prey for you and they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this,” saith The LORD of Hosts.

 

Outside of human beings, bald eagles have very few natural enemies, and adult eagles have no natural predators.

 

Thermals are updrafts of warm air that rise from the ground into the sky. By flying a spiraling circular path within these columns of rising air, birds are able to “ride” the air currents and climb to higher altitudes while expending very little energy in the process.

 

Eagles have a 340 degree field of vision compared to the 180 degrees of we humans. The retina of an eagle’s eye has very sensitive light-detecting cells and their astounding depth of vision allows them to focus in like a strong telephoto lens. Eagles have the ability to see colors more vividly than humans can. They can even see ultraviolet light and pick out more shades of one color. (wildrevelation.com)

 

Bible Verses :

 

“As an eagle stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, He spread His wings to catch them and carried them on His pinions.” Deuteronomy 32:11.

 

“The wind blows where it wishes. You hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3:8.

 

“He will cover you with His feathers; under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day.” Psalm 91:4-5.

 

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be upon His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on the throne of David and over His kingdom, to establish and sustain it with justice and righteousness from that time and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of Hosts will accomplish this.” Isaiah 9:6-7.

 

“How great are His signs, how mighty His wonders! His Kingdom is an eternal kingdom; His Dominion endures from generation to generation.” Daniel 4:3.

 

“But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.” Malachi 4:2-3.

The Enemy is Terrified

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

“The enemy is terrified, knowing that his days are numbered,” says The LORD.

 

“He has no peace, no joy, no rest, and no hope. When I pour out my indignation against the workers of iniquity and the children of wrath, there will be no place for them to escape.

 

“Justice and righteousness belong to me, and I will not allow unrighteousness to reign. I AM coming soon,” says The LORD.

 

“I will not give up the earth that belongs to me to the evil ones, and I will cause the meek to inherit it,” says The LORD.

 

“They will rule and reign with Me, and there will be NO MORE destruction, NO more disease, NO more unrighteousness, NO more unrest, No more injustice, and NO MORE pain!

 

“You will shine brightly in MY kingdom that is without end. I will reward you for your faithfulness, dry all your tears, and lavish you with treasures you could never imagine,” says The LORD.

 

“Take heart, for I AM not finished with you yet,” says The LORD.

 

“I have need of you. I will avenge you of your adversaries, restore you, heal your wounds and promote you.

 

“I will pour out My Holy SPIRIT and FIRE, and rain down miracles, signs and wonders that you will witness.

 

“I will use you for My Glory, and your heart will sing as you reap a bountiful harvest for My Kingdom that is without end, and the days of your mourning will suddenly END,” says The LORD.

Why We Need God’s Grace

By Greg Laurie

           

LISTEN 

 

 

 

“Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.”

 

—Matthew 6:11–12

 

 

Let’s imagine for a moment that you loaned something valuable to someone, and they ended up destroying it. If you said, “I want you to get me a brand-new one,” that would be justice.

 

But let’s say that you dealt with them in mercy instead. You said, “You don’t have to get me a brand-new one. I forgive you.”

 

Then again, let’s say that you dealt with them in grace. You wouldn’t insist they give you a new one. Rather, you’d buy them their own and then take them out for dinner, too. That’s an example of grace, which is God’s unmerited favor.

 

The Bible tells us, “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it” (Ephesians 2:8–9 NLT).

 

Why do we need God's grace? Because we sin every day. We sin more than we think we do. In fact, the Bible says, “If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth” (1 John 1:8 NLT).

 

Yes, sin is when we think a lustful thought or we lose our temper. But sin also can be when we say no to the Lord’s promptings to read His Word or pray or share the gospel with someone. It’s knowing what we should do but not doing it.

 

So we need God’s grace every day. Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us” (Matthew 6:11–12 NLT).

 

Just as surely as we need daily bread or provision from God, we need daily forgiveness as well. That’s where grace comes in.

"Everyone Will Be SHOCKED by the Surprise Ending"

By Wanda Alger

 

 

When we eventually witness the finale to this global drama we've been enduring, I believe EVERYONE is going to be shocked and unnerved by the surprise ending. When the revelations break and the truth is told, EVERY individual is going to be humbled and in awe. We are going to realize that each of us has only seen IN PART.

 

The supernatural realities of the Kingdom will be revealed as never before. That which God Himself has been orchestrating, from generations past, will cause every knee to bow and acknowledge that He alone has the authority and final call over the affairs of men and the plots of the enemy.

 

"...No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him." (1 Corinthians 2:9)

 

NO ONE has fully understood what God has planned for us. None of us can fathom the depth of His thoughts as He has been writing this story from the beginning of time in anticipation of this moment. This has nothing to do with vindicating man or proving a point. It has everything to do with God vindicating His own name and claiming His rightful place.

 

"For My own sake, for My own sake, I do it, for how should My name be profaned? My glory I will not give to another." (Isaiah 48:11)

 

Stand Fast! The Season Is About to Change

 

Stand fast in this moment of anticipation and know that even in this "dark winter" we have not been alone! Heaven's armies are backing up the earth realm because of the rising swell of God's people declaring that HE ALONE is God! The collective cry for justice, truth, and righteous rule reached Heaven's ears a long time ago, and they have been drawing closer ever since.  

 

The false rulers of this age on their man-made thrones are about to be eradicated and replaced. This dark season is about to be a long-lost memory and but one page in the history books. "SPRING" is here and it is Heaven's TIME for NEW LIFE and NEW BEGINNINGS. The season is about to change!

 

This will be a collective cleansing and humbling in order to form a more perfect union under the Lordship of Christ. The sovereign right of the Champion of Hosts will overshadow every other claim to ownership. HIS is the only true authority that has the power to change the affairs of men and overcome every scheme of Hell.

 

No one can predict how it will unfold. We only know it will. God has been preparing us all along for this epic demarcation in history. Where the enemy is hoping that we come to a disastrous BREAKDOWN, the Lord of Hosts is preparing us for a global BREAKTHROUGH.

 

Remain fixed in this hope that redemption draws near and the world as we know it will never be the same. The finale is quickly approaching, and the Master of Ceremonies will reveal all.

"The Birthing of a Miracle: Revival Is Coming to China!"

By Sean Song

 

 

Testimony: Our Miracle Baby at Elijah List Conference

 

By 2015, I had been in the United States for thirteen years and a Christian for the same amount of time. In 2006, I married my wife, and like many other Chinese couples, we had every intention of building a family. However, by 2015 we approached ten years of barrenness. We wanted a child, but we simply could not have one. In search of healing for my wife's infertility, I traveled to many cities within the US to join healing and prophetic conferences.

 

A final visit to an Elijah List conference in Oregon in January 2016 sealed the deal for me. There, a well-known prophet named Dutch Sheets spoke to the crowd and said, "Today, you come here not by coincidence. It is God who leads you here and from today on, you will hear God speaking to you like you never have before." I believed these words.

 

During our lunch break, I wandered to a nearby store and entreated of the Lord to speak to me. When I sat down in a chair outside of a Christian bookstore, my eye caught a Peanuts calendar sitting on display. The cover said, "Peanuts 2016 Family Planner." Suddenly, God spoke clearly to me: "2016, plan your family; you will have a child this year." I was astonished! I had never heard God speaking to me so clearly, and He just said I was going to have a child that year! I immediately called my wife and she encouraged me to buy the calendar as a memorial.

 

Meanwhile, I went back to China to visit my family in February 2016. My mother, who still worshiped Buddha, had been desperately praying to all kinds of idols to help us have a baby. I had been trying to preach the Gospel to her since 2003, but with trivial effect. Months later, back in the USA, we continued waiting for our miracle. One day in desperation, I prayed, "Dear Holy Spirit, those people in Pentecostal churches always teach that we should have an intimate relationship with You. Now, I have prayed to both the Father and Jesus many times and I do not know when this pregnancy is going to happen. Can you ask the Father and Jesus for me when this will happen?"

 

That night I had a dream. A woman (representative of the Holy Spirit) pointed to the back of a male figure (Jesus). She said to me, "Did He not tell you that you will have a child next month?" I woke up the next morning and told my wife about this dream. Two weeks later, I received a text from her that read, "You have won the lottery!" On May 28, 2016, my wife found out that she was miraculously pregnant! (This was 4 months after being at the Elijah List Conference!) Our miracle baby girl, Elim, was born healthy and beautiful in early 2017.

 

This leads to the next miracle: My parents were astonished with this miracle of our baby and they both accepted Jesus as their Savior.

 

What Is A Great Revival?

 

Before attending the Elijah List conference in 2016, I read a book by one of the speakers, Chuck Pierce. In his book, "God's Unfolding Battle Plan," Pierce recalls a visitation he had with the Lord in the 1980s. God told him what China would be like in 2006 and that there would be a great revival coming to China in the future. It would also spread to the world.

 

I was just going to the conference to receive healing for my wife, but God had much more in store! That day I received three things: 1) a prophetic promise directly from God that I would have a baby (which came true); 2) an anointing to clearly hear God henceforth (which started that day and has continued); and 3) the beginning of my commission to be part of this soon-coming revival to China. (Photo via Piqsels)

 

When I came home from the conference, the Lord began to speak with me more about this revival. One day I was walking the streets of Washington DC, thinking about this great revival. Suddenly, the Holy Spirit asked me, "What is a great revival?"

 

I was surprised that I again heard Him speak so clearly! I immediately replied in my spirit, "I heard that one out of ten Chinese people have converted to Christianity. Isn't this already a great revival?" Immediately, the Holy Spirit asked another question, "How about two out of ten?" I was shocked again by the clarity with which the Holy Spirit spoke. In a very short time, I had a calculation. That would be the equivalent of another 100 Million Chinese people.

 

At that moment, I believe the Holy Spirit intended to challenge me with His questions to open my perspective. Please note that I do not think He only meant that two out of ten Chinese people will be saved. Bob Jones once prophesied that one billion souls would be harvested in the soon-coming world revival. For me, it is not hard to imagine that at least 100 million Chinese would be included in this number.

 

Sometime later, I met a Korean prophet who confirmed what the Holy Spirit spoke to me on that day. He said, "God will have you go back to China to teach the Word of God all over and be part of this revival." He also said that the 21st century is a century that God will use to evangelize China.

 

Prophetic Dreams of China's Future Revival

 

On January 11, 2016, shortly after coming back from the Elijah List conference, I had the following dream. There were four scenes.

 

In the first scene, I found myself at a construction site in China. A "keeper" (a guard-like man) was there with a roll/register in his hand. I got the impression that he was an angel who managed the Book of Life. I asked this man if a relative who had gone missing in China was on this list of names. After looking, he replied, "No." I felt so sorry for this relative.

 

In the second scene, I experienced great chaos and upheaval. I was tossed upside down and I discerned pending destruction as I watched a steel stick from the construction site fall from a building. By the end of this scene, I saw a building only partly constructed.

 

In the third scene, my wife and I were in a high glass tower with windows like the ones you see in big cities. It seemed we were a having a Christian meeting there when suddenly we received a report that we were surrounded by persecutors. Arguments arose among the people in the building. Some insisted to go down and some said to go up. I insisted on heading upward, so up we went.

 

In the fourth scene, my wife and I miraculously escaped into a residential building. I told my wife that no one would see us since we appeared just like the residents. As we walked downstairs I felt peace, and a lion-like animal the size of a cat appeared among us. I carried the animal and it seemed calm and meek until we hit a great wall that we could not pass through. Suddenly, the small lion-type animal arose with great strength to help us roll the wall over. Immediately, I saw several horses gallop speedily and powerfully, and a great pasture lay before my eyes. It was powerful! It reminded me of something resembling a great breakthrough or an extreme revival.

 

Stages of the Coming Revival

 

My interpretation, coupled with the interpretation of a fellow Believer, is detailed below. This dream represents several stages of the coming revival:

 

First, the construction site represents a work in progress. An incomplete or half-erected building symbolizes that a work has begun but is not complete. The angelic being keeping track of lives demonstrates God's involvement and desire. It shows that their salvation is important to God. My attempt to find a dead person can represent the spiritual state of many persons in China, and my sadness shows God's feelings regarding this matter.

 

Second, the sudden and great chaos in the beginning and throughout is representative of the shaking that will take place. Authorities and systems that have been allowed to stand for a time will fall, and only what is in line with God's Kingdom will remain (a building left partly standing). The Church will also go through immense testing and during this test, some may fall.  

 

The third scene is symbolic of a few things. God will give favor to those who are spreading the Gospel and discipling persons in China. This is representative of the high tower in which my wife and I were hosting a Bible study. Although persecution will arise and has even already, God has given His people the wisdom to see it coming (the glass windows). Wisdom for escape and a battle plan will be granted to those who are led by the Spirit and commissioned by Him.

 

In the fourth scene of the dream, wisdom is represented by my ability to discern among those panicking and unsure that our escape from the building would be by climbing upward instead of down. Climbing upward is also significant of looking Heavenward to keep our eyes fixed on the Lord and tuned into His plans. Persecution and shaking naturally entices us to look at our surroundings and environment; we are tempted to descend instead of ascending. To deal with the situation, faith must move Christians rather than fear. The only way to guarantee supernatural delivery is to continue upwards, and the Lord will surely rescue such persons. God will also grant cover when necessary. This is demonstrated by us blending in and appearing like the other residents.

 

Finally, the lion-like animal represents the presence of the Spirit of Christ which will accompany those He calls His own. He will grant them peace amidst the turmoil, and they shall not be afraid. Carrying the lion-like animal is also symbolic of being equipped with the Spirit of Christ. This scene represents both the life of Christ in us and the help He offers. Christ is both meek and mighty. If a wall stands in our way, Christ will arise with power and strength to make a path for our feet by rolling the wall away.

 

With Christ, Christians commissioned by Him will demolish forces in our path to make it possible for breakthrough to be released (represented by the horses and pasture). As speedy and powerful as the horses were, so will the awakening be. It will also be pleasant (green pasture).

 

3-D Vision: Dancing, Celebrating and Worshipping - On the Streets of China!

 

In March 2020, I was taken into another vision. This was the most vivid 3D-type of vision I have had thus far. In it, I saw a great revival happening in China. It was bursting out all over! People were dancing, celebrating, and worshiping God all over the streets of China.

 

In the next scene, I was brought into a heavenly meeting where many saints in glory, including Chinese and Westerners, were meeting. There was a Chinese lady who gave me a tour of the place and she specifically told me that this revival was something she had never seen when she was on Earth.

 

In the end, angels had bound an evil political spirit and I saw that a great political change would come to China after this great revival. China will become a democratic nation and they will worship God.

 

Revival is Here!

 

I feel the Lord is going to bless His Church with a corporate miracle baby (like He blessed me and my wife) – which is the revival of the Church. We often hear that before the dawn, the darkness is the greatest. Just as the Lord once appeared to me in great power and light and laid His hand on me, I sense His hand is on China right now. He is about to release a great awakening to China, and a mass exodus of Chinese people will come out of darkness into the light.

 

May the Church endure in intercession and prayer. Many will be brought out of Egypt into the Kingdom of Light, and people will see miracles happening across America, China, and all over the world. Political shifts will take place and many people will turn their hearts to God. Revival will break out!

 

God bless you. God bless America, and God bless China. God bless this coming revival.

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

 

 

UNGODLY COUNSEL VERSUS GODLY COUNSEL

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*____If one is found pursuing [seeking after, choosing] something other than My Will then they will NOT be found "abiding" in My Counsel [Wisdom]. It must be clearly understood by each and every one of My children that "self-desire" [maintained] in ANY form will ALWAYS lead one away from godly counsel [and from My Presence] while godly desire [maintained] will ALWAYS lead one closer to Me - with a heart that is "receptive" to godly counsel in whatever form it issues forth [from My Spirit].

 

       For from My anointed words [and, indeed, My very Presence] there shines forth sufficient light [revelation] and Grace [empowerment] to keep one on the narrow path [of perfect obedience] and, at the same time, "convict" [both expose and interfere with the plans of ] the heart of the one who has strayed from My perfect purpose [Will] for their life and ministry. Truly I say to you, in this most critical and glorious hour one will be found exactly where "they", themselves, have chosen to be [the Kingdom or the world; abiding in godly counsel or abiding in ungodly counsel].

 

"counsel" - advice or instruction given in helping direct the judgement or conduct of another; interchange of ideas as to future procedure;

 

        ...."How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law [Word] of the LORD, and in His law [Word] he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers".... Psalms 1:1-3 NASB

 

        ...."For every wrongdoer hates [loathes, detests] the Light, and will not come out into the Light but shrinks from it, lest his works [his deeds, his activities, his conduct] be exposed and reproved. But he who practices truth [who does what is right] comes out into the Light; so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are - wrought with God [divinely prompted, done with God's help, in dependence upon Him]".... John 3:20-21 The Amplified Translation

 

       The root of ALL "ungodly" counsel is rooted and grounded in "self-agenda" in the heart of the one giving the ungodly counsel - whereas, ALL godly counsel is rooted and grounded in Love and a revelation of the Father's Will [Word].

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who have come to abide in Your Counsel - a people, in whom, Your Grace and Wisdom abounds. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

To Look For People’s Approval

By Kathy Mote

 

 

To look for people's approval is to look for yourself in their heart. You will not find yourself by knowing what's in their heart. You will find who you are by knowing what's in HIS heart.

For Years The Faith Teachers Taught Us

By Kathy Mote

 

 

For years the faith teachers taught us that we could walk up to any mountain and cast it into the sea, and if we believe what we say hard enough, it will obey us. They have taken that scripture literally, carnally and out of His presence, neglecting to mention that every aspect of the Life, power and authority in Christ is in and by His presence.

 

They taught us to practice the Bible in this way, not heeding the first commandment to know Him as Lord and to honor His presence, to love Him with all our heart and all our mind and all our soul. This declares Him Lord of our will and every desire in us.

 

As He is the head and we are His body, His presence is what we walk in and His will is what we honor as we obey Him. His authority makes a way for us and every 'mountain' that stands in our way is cast into the sea. That is how His authority brings about His will for us.

 

As we walk in His presence, nothing interferes with His will for us and nothing hinders us. Surrender is how we walk in this. His will is established in the Earth as His presence is established in our heart. How we agree with Him is we honor His authority over us. That is the Father's will for us and that is how He provides for us.

One Of The Biggest Mistakes

By Kathy Mote

 

 

One of the biggest mistakes we can make is to assume that the purpose of our faith is to bring our will to pass. It wasn't. Our 'faith' is His presence in us, bringing HIS will to pass as we rest in His arms and trust Him.

 

Another misconception is the thinking that what we are able to understand of the Bible is what we can receive, and that is His will for us. We cannot conceive or imagine the Life He will fill us with, and that LIFE is only in His presence.

 

The Bible and the Holy Spirit were given to us to lead us to God's Living Word, which is Christ Jesus. HE is God's will and decree, the expression of all that is in God's heart for us. He, and He alone, can fill us with all that our Father desires as He brings us to Him, filled with His heart and made right by it.

No One ‘Stands’ In His Presence

By Kathy Mote

 

 

No one 'stands' in His presence. They are brought into His presence to learn the posture He desires of them. You are brought before Him not to be as you are, but to be made as He desires, and it is His presence in you that does that. It is an expression of His grace that He brings you before Him to address you or correct you. That is when He fills you.

Pride

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Pride, that 'will to live as I am' is deeply embedded in my nature. It is what I am without Him. Expressing who I am without Him is what I stop doing in His presence. He reveals His heart to correct my heart, and as I receive Him, I am filled by Him. Being filled is being humbled, and it is both His presence in me and my response to Him. Like a dance, I am embraced by Him.

God Tucked Moses In The Cleft Of The Rock

By Kathy Mote

 

 

God tucked Moses in the cleft of the rock to hide him from the full force of His presence as He passed by. As He set foot on the Earth, God caused great shaking and quaking, lightning and thunder, rain and hail and fire and ice all at once because as He enters a place not yielded to Him, His presence brings justice to make it right with Him. His presence makes a place the expression of Him as He enters it.

 

That is why there is no shaking and quaking, no fire and ice or hail and rain and winds in Heaven. In His presence nothing opposes Him. In Heaven all things are the expression of Him without turbulence or struggle or opposition. He is Light and peace and pure and good and that is what it is like in Heaven.

 

On Earth, the place He is present as Lord is our heart. He set things up this way to bring the justice of His presence into us to raise us. His presence in us honors Him, His will and His ways. His presence brings peace into us.

 

But on Earth pride opposes Him. Pride is the will to live and to be as one desires and chooses to be, without Him, without answering to Him or acknowledging Him. Pride is owning your own heart.

 

Only those brought into His presence know in a deeply moving way that Life is in Him. They know His love, His gentle goodness, His power and His fathful nature so intimately that trust is their response to Him and there is no shaking in them. To be completely filled by Him is to be made the expression of Him, and this is how we honor Him.

To Be Despised In Your Own Life

By Kathy Mote

 

 

To be despised in your own life and by your own kin prepares your heart to answer a higher calling than anything this life can give. Do not desire a better life, desire Him. That higher calling is into His presence, and there is nothing beyond Him.

It Is So Sweet To Be Loved

By Kathy Mote

 

 

It is so sweet to be loved when we have been hated so much...the Lord told me what the 'hate' is...it is the world's response and reaction to His presence bringing His purpose to Earth. It was meant to humble our heart. That also serves His purpose in our life.

 

His purpose, brought about by His presence in us is the driving force behind almost everything that happens to us in this life. His purpose is to bring our heart into His heart.

 

We are not meant to have a perfect life, but to be given a perfect heart in this life. As our hearts turn toward Him, He fills us, by His Spirit, with His Light. Then we move on to deeper things of His heart. He is breathing His heart into us to keep us in His arms forever and forever again.

One Of The Artists I Discovered Lately

By Kathy Mote

 

 

One of the artists I discovered lately is a turn of the century Frenchman who does beautiful work. He is famous for his portraits but he also did nudes, as well.

 

While scrolling down images of his work, I saw a portrait of a young girl, without clothing from the waist up. It was as innocent and beautiful as the statue of David, and the Lord spoke to me when I saw it.

 

She was young and innocent to the intentions of grown men. The Lord asked me what it would do to someone's heart to be treated in a way their heart is not ready for. This is to be shaken from your innocence and this is the way of the world we are in.

 

Our experiences here influence and reveal where our heart is. The trials of this life lead us to turn to Him. He restores our innocence as He reveals our place in His heart.

 

Without this experience, we would remain broken, without His presence in us. To imprint on our heart, He teaches us to live in His presence as He reveals His love for us. That is how He leads and guides, protects and heals us.

In A Vision

By Kathy Mote

 

 

In a vision, I see little wooden puppets waiting to be made real. Made of mere physical stuff, they are not alive yet and the breath in them won't last. At a workbench, the Lord kindly takes each one and fills them as He breathes into them. He is awakening them to Him. This is the Life in them, and to walk in it, they respond to Him. Walking in His presence is Life, for Life is in Him.

 

Please allow me to say one more time what is so hard to comprehend. He is creating us by His Spirit and He is not finished filling us with all there is yet. When He is finished, we will all be raised as one and gathered in Him.

The Treasure Within Us

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

I saw in the Spirit a Child of God carrying a bag. It was a plain brown color with a drawstring.

 

And I saw him open it up and Light came out of it and all sorts of treasures and precious things. And I saw different types of flowers for different people.

 

Flowers contain the FRUITS and the SEEDS of Life. The Holy Spirit is the Treasure within us, the One who gifts us with every spiritual blessing and from Whom come ALL the fruits of the Spirit.

 

And not only are these Treasures for us but we carry specific gifts that will minister to whomever God sends our way.

 

Some of you may carry roses (Rose of Sharon), some lilies (Lily of the Valley), some sunflowers (Sun of Righteousness). (These all represent Life in Jesus.)

 

We all carry different beautiful “gems” and” nuggets”; words in season, the Word of God that will set people free and release burdens.

 

We all carry precious seed, to plant not just in our lives but in others’ lives. For we know that those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.

 

He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

 

“Beloved. You are My Humble Ones. The Ones who do not lift up themselves but lift up the name of Jesus. I give Grace to the humble. You carry My Spirit, My Child.

 

You have this Treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the Power may be of God and not of yourself.

 

Always, you carry about in your body the death of The LORD Jesus, that the LIFE of Jesus may be manifested in your body.

 

I have blessed you in Christ with EVERY spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms. Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in these days.

 

In you, I will display My Glory and My Splendor. You shall be like a tree planted by the Rivers of water, and you shall bring forth fruit in its season.

 

You are those whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever you do shall prosper. For I delight in you, My Child; The LORD delights in His people.

 

I crown the humble with victory. So open your eyes and heart, Beloved. Open up to the Treasures within you. Let the Gifts of the Spirit flow forth. Let your Fruit be evident to all men.

 

You who were considered by the world as “nothing” are now seated with the Majesty on High.

 

You are My Humble Ones of Splendor having been raised up from the miry clay and from the pit of destruction by My Hand and by My Grace.

 

Know this, Beloved. Those who sow in tears shall reap in great joy. And you shall stand before men and women and kings and princes, and ALL shall be amazed by the Treasures I have placed within you!”

 

Meaning of the color BROWN: Earthen, Humility,

 

FLOWERS : Flowers are the growths which precede, and in their manner produce the fruits and seeds; for, as is known, trees and plants blossom before they bear fruit.

 

The NINE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT : “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.” (1 Corinthians 12:7-11)

 

“But we have this TREASURE IN EARTHEN VESSELS, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed — always carrying about in the body the dying of The LORD Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.” 2 Corinthians 4:7-10.

 

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the One having blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms,” Ephesians 1:3.

Quality Control Begins with Surrender and Submission

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

“A quality life is quality controlled,” says The LORD.

 

“I will give you a quality life as you surrender it to Me and submit to My perfect will and plan for your life. My higher thoughts and ways and plans and visions for you are SO MUCH better than yours.

 

“You thought yours were good? Tap into mine! I will not give you a bad life, a bad deal, a bad time!

 

“I want the best for My beloved children, and I DO KNOW what that looks like, feels like and will be like,” says The LORD.

 

“Can you entrust your entire life to Me? Give Me the controls, as you relinquish them,” says The LORD.

 

“You will never be disappointed or dissatisfied with the results of full surrender. You will only ask yourself what took you so long to submit, when it was SO GOOD!

 

“I will give you brass for wood, silver for brass, gold for silver, and more than enough! For what I give you in exchange far exceeds your expectations.

 

“You cannot even imagine My plans until you give up yours! I have so much for you, and you will be positioned, provisioned, empowered and employed in the things that are eternal, and can never be extracted from you.

 

“Your purpose exceeds your imagination, and if you will totally surrender, you will never be dissatisfied, but will be fat and full of My Blessings upon Blessings, and a vessel of honor that I will use for My Glory,” says The LORD.

Beware a Sheep in Wolf’s Clothing!

By Jo Ellen Stevens

 

 

I don’t know who this is for and it may be for many in The Body of Christ right now.

 

I had a dream about someone in bed with what they thought was a sweet cuddly puppy and when they started to cuddle that puppy and hold it close it turned into a rat with huge teeth.

 

It then clamped it’s teeth down between their thumb and pointing finger and would not turn lose.

 

As soon as I woke, up The LORD said that the pointing finger was the Prophet and the thumb was the Apostolic and this what looked like a cute puppy to begin with, was trying to get in between the prophetic and Apostolic in The Church right now.

 

This rat does not want them working together, so it has come in almost like a sheep in wolf’s clothing to stop this alignment only this is a rat in puppy clothing!

 

He said be discerning!

 

Do not let this rat fool you!

 

You are getting close to a complete breakthrough! The enemy wants to stop it!

The LORD Is Merciful and Full of Compassion

By Geraldine Fisher

 

 

The LORD Is Merciful and Full of Compassion — but He will not always look the other way!

 

As I was meditating upon The LORD, He brought back a word my daughter had given me regarding a visitation she had from The LORD.

 

She said she saw a man in this visitation and his face was red and his cheeks glistening and as I thought upon her visitation, The LORD began to speak to me regarding the wrath and the anger of The LORD.

 

As I read the entire Book of Zephaniah, Zephaniah knew that neither the false gods, nor the people who worshiped them, would be able to escape God’s wrath, just like the might of the Assyrian army that could not save them, that had been unfaithful to God.

 

Many who teach prosperity messages of justification and are deceiving the people with gifts, talents and the supernatural with no deliverance or transformation in sight, God Himself shall deal with them who have begun to point the people to them; instead of Christ.

 

God is gracious, kind, loving and a compassionate Savior, but when all His Warnings are continuously ignored, judgment is to be expected for all those who shrug up their shoulders stick out their chests and noses at what God has said unto them by the prophets and others, and in that day, God’s Day of Judgment is sure to come, as is frequently mentioned in the Scriptures.

 

The prophets called it the “The coming of The LORD.” They referred to various events — such as the fall of Jerusalem — as manifestations of God’s Day which pointed toward the ultimate Day of The LORD.

 

As I was meditating upon The LORD, Zephaniah’s message of judgment and encouragement contained 3 important ideas we as a nation should get from this Book which is:

 

God is sovereign over all nations.

 

The wicked will be punished and the righteous will be vindicated in the day of God’s judgment.

 

God blesses those who sincerely repent and trust in Him.

 

 

I believe that as we enter a dark time of darkness (the love of many has begun to wax cold) where wickedness has increased and shall continue to increase more and more we shall see the hands and the finger of God begin to deal with the hearts of the wicked and all that is evil because of the prays of the righteous that prevailed much:

 

As stated,

 

“Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to save them on the day of The LORD’s wrath. In the fire of his jealousy the whole world will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live in the earth.” Zephaniah 1:18.

 

Zephaniah continues on to say,

 

“Seek The LORD, all you humble of the land, (meaning put away your pride, vanity and your arrogance) you who do what he commands. Seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of The LORD’s anger.” Zephaniah 2:3 emphasis added.

 

My God! My LORD! Jesus have Mercy Oh God!

 

“For, The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His Love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17.

 

For, The LORD has taken away your punishment only through Christ who came to die for the sins of His People. (Zephaniah 3:15; John 3:16).

 

For many have not yet recognized their true Savior. And have refused to humble themselves because they believe that this is yet to happen (Romans 11:25-27).

To One Who Feels Alone

By Kelley Ewing

 

 

My heart is for the one whose heart is breaking.

 

The one who feels alone. The one who has anxious thoughts.

 

I see The LORD snatching them away. Like you would try to catch a fly in your hand.

 

That is enough of that. He cares so much about what you are facing today, yesterday and He wants to bring healing to all those areas in your life.

 

He is asking come away with me. “Let your thoughts get lost in Me.”

 

Like a rambling river, I see Him coming in quickly to heal those broken areas of your heart.

 

Healing is yours. Freedom is yours. Let Him take it. Let Him take all the pain you have been holding on to for so long.

 

God will do it. God will do it and bring freedom and restoration to all those lost places.

Contended Against — Line by Line

By Abel Praise

 

 

When a man’s portrayal or representation of The LORD becomes a stumbling block to the people of GOD; he will be contended against.

 

It may not yet seem like the man is being contended against, because the transition process is running its course.

 

Like King Saul; an anointed representative of The LORD who became a misrepresentation of The LORD; the angelic hosts of Heaven were realigned to march with David till he fulfilled the heavenly requirement for transition.

 

Only then did it appear that a shift had taken place.

 

The same happened to Eli the priest and his sons.

 

The most dangerous place is to be seen as a stumbling block to the people of GOD who you’re sent to lead; it may not be like it; but once the articles of transition have been activated in The Kingdom, it’s only a matter of time.

 

* * * * * * *

 

Line upon line,

A little here,

A little there,

And the pieces,

Of the map,

Will be fulfilled,

And the will,

Of The Master,

Incontestably established,

A life lived,

In total obedience,

To HIM who,

Sees in secret,

And not for,

Public approval,

Has nothing to fear,

When tongues wag,

And swords cling,

Only listening,

And obeying,

Soon the inheritance,

Of the earth,

Will fall under his feet,

And he will rule,

The nations,

With a rod of iron,

So daily I pray,

Let my thoughts,

Words and deeds,

Reflect the very thoughts,

Of my Master and Lord,

For in this,

I want to rejoice,

When the stones,

Come hurling,

Well done,

Good and Faithful Servant.

When He Leads Us Through

By Greg Laurie

 

           

 

LISTEN  

 

 

 

“The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”

—Exodus 14:14

 

 

 

There was no way the Israelites could get across the Red Sea. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the Egyptian army was in hot pursuit.

 

The people got so upset that they turned to Moses and said, “Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren’t there enough graves for us in Egypt? What have you done to us? Why did you make us leave Egypt?” (Exodus 14:11 NLT).

 

You know the rest of the story. The Lord caused the waters of the Red Sea to part, and the Israelites crossed through on dry ground. Then those same waters closed on the pursuing Egyptian army.

 

God didn’t keep the Israelites from the trial, but He kept them through it.

 

The same is true of the three courageous teenagers Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. King Nebuchadnezzar had them thrown into a fiery furnace because they wouldn’t worship a false god.

 

Of course, God could have delivered them from the furnace altogether. Instead, He allowed them to be thrown into the furnace. But when the king looked in, he said, “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!” (Daniel 3:25 NLT).

 

Again, we see that the Lord kept them through the trial but not necessarily from it.

 

But what about when an accident or a tragedy happens in the life of a child of God? Where’s the keeping power of God then? In asking a question like that, we’re assuming that we somehow have the inherent right to live long, easy lives and die peacefully in our sleep one day.

 

The Bible says that our “future is in [His] hands” (Psalm 31:15 NLT). This means that the Lord will walk with us through life, no matter what we’re facing. We’ll never be alone.

"God Will Restore Better Than Before!"

By Ryan Johnson

 

 

 

Living in the region that we do, we see an abundance of antique/modern car shows. As an individual who appreciates antique cars, I love the fact that I get to attend these shows. Recently, I was walking around admiring the detailed work that had gone into the restoration of these machines. I took the time to notice the amount of money, hours, and love that had gone into the vehicles and it amazed me.

 

While looking at the vehicles, I began to notice something that I had never considered. Though it wasn't hidden, I honestly just never placed any focus on what I had then recognized. The overwhelming majority of the vehicles were identified as a "Restored Car." However, vehicles like those are rarely ever restored to be what they once were...exactly what they once were. The cars are often restored with modern advancements; from brakes, to engines, air conditioning, power steering, and more. The majority of the time, a full restoration will include modern advancements of technology.

 

That's when it hit me...when we think of restoration, our minds immediately think of the moment in time in which we were originally. Here's the point...God isn't looking to restore you to the exact point in which you were before you failed, or the point in which you were at your weakest. God is looking to restore with MORE!

 

The biblical meaning of the word "restoration" is to receive back more than has been lost, to the point where the final state is greater than the original condition. The main point is that someone or something is improved beyond measure. Unlike the regular dictionary meaning of "restoration," which is to return something back to its original condition, the biblical definition of the word has greater connotations that go above and beyond the typical, everyday usage.

 

Repeatedly throughout the Bible, God blessed people for their faith as well as their hardships by making up for their losses and giving them more than they previously had before. In His Word, God gives simple, but imperative, commands to His children during His declaration of restoration. These actions demonstrate compliance and faith in the God of restoration and our dedication to Him. It is God, through restoration, that makes your name great and grants you a testimony, and it will be done while you behold His mighty hand in your life!

 

Why Must There Be Restoration?

 

There are people sitting in our churches each week who are hooked into sin or circumstance, and although they "pull hard" to try and break free, they only tighten the chains around them in the situation. Many times we want to help people out of a circumstance without identifying the spiritual root of the problem; but if the cause is spiritual, the cure must be spiritual.  

 

A snare is always rooted in a spiritual cause because the root of any snare is satan, our flesh or both. You can't spiritually treat something simply by looking at the symptoms of the problem. You must discover the spiritual cause and treat it spiritually in order to restore someone. (Please read 2 Timothy 2:14-26.)

 

When we seek to restore one another, we must seek to address the spiritual cause of the snare, because only then can we set the person free. Health is restored by addressing the source, not the symptoms. To get to the source, we need to have a spiritual approach to restoration. A fundamental cause for people to become ensnared in the first place is pain. Today, people focus so much on distracting themselves from pain rather than healing their source of pain. Because of this, they end up adding to the vices that bind them, rather than reaching true restoration.

 

The worst thing someone can do is create one snare in order to get out of another. Healing and freedom from sin occur when people recognize the root cause of their pain and turn to God. Restoring others begins when we help them identify the source of their pain. Healing of the soul must occur before they can experience any improvement in their painful symptoms.

 

Restore

 

To help us a little more, let's look at what David meant when he asked God, "Restore to me the joy of Your salvation..." (Psalm 51:12). That moment in time came after the incident of David committing adultery with Bathsheba. The prophet Nathan confronts David with his sin, and David confesses. The story involves not only adultery but Bathsheba's pregnancy, an attempted cover-up, and David's eventual murder of Bathsheba's husband.

 

Psalm 51 is a prayer of forgiveness and cleansing. Verses 1-9 say:

 

"Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your unfailing love; according to Your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned and done what is evil in Your sight; so You are right in Your verdict and justified when You judge. Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Yet You desired faithfulness even in the womb; You taught me wisdom in that secret place. Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones You have crushed rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity."

 

Verses 10-12 are perhaps the most famous of Psalm 51:

 

"Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from Your presence or take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me."

 

In verse 11 David asks that the Holy Spirit not be removed from him. We have to understand that in the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit usually came upon a person to enable the performance of a certain task. If the Holy Spirit were removed from David, it would mean that he would be rejected by God as king in the same way that God had rejected Saul and removed His Spirit from him (1 Samuel 16:14).

 

David asks God to restore the joy of his salvation. The time between David's sin and Nathan's confrontation was some months, because the child had already been born. During that time, David suffered inner torment, as he describes in Psalm 32:3-4: "When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy on me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer."

 

Despite the steps David took to stop the news of what he had done, he did not experience joy in the cover up. However, once he confessed his sin to God, he received forgiveness, and his joy returned. Psalm 32 begins this way: "Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord does not count against them and in whose spirit is no deceit" (verses 1-2). Psalm 32 ends with "Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!" (verse 11).

 

When David pleads with God, "Restore to me the joy of Your salvation," he is asking that he would again have the fellowship with God that he once knew and enjoyed. David could not enjoy God's fellowship while he had unconfessed sin. We can lose the joy of our salvation. We will not lose salvation—sin will not separate the Believer from God—but it can rob us of joy and the enjoyment of close fellowship with our Savior.

 

Why Is This Important Today?

 

We cannot restore ourselves, but must be restored by God. David recognized God as his shepherd or caretaker. Because God watched over him, he did not find himself in need of anything.

 

Psalm 23: "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."

 

Pay attention to how the last portion of Psalm 23 shifts to a different scenario. David sits at a table among his enemies, likely at a royal banquet. David has no fear of his enemies, he is anointed (set apart as special), and his cup overflows (meaning he has plenty to drink). He feels blessed with goodness and mercy and will live in God's house forever.

 

How powerful is it to know that you can be seated at the table, and there is no shame from your place at that table? David was at rest when he composed this Psalm. This was not a song to prepare for battle or celebrate a holy day, but rather to enjoy a time of relaxation in God's presence. Restoration involves reflection. David's soul was restored as he looked at life from God's perspective. He felt protected, safe, and secure under the leadership of God. Restoration includes replenishment. Both rest and reflection lead to a renewed vigor to live for God.

 

With this perspective, David could live with a restored soul, prepared for the problems of the day. He knew God was with him, cared for him, and would never leave his side. There was no battle too big for him to face with God in his life. The same is true in our own lives.

 

If we sincerely desire to see God restore our soul, we need to make time to rest, reflect, and replenish. We cannot expect to live with a fresh sense of God's presence in our lives if we constantly rush from one issue to the next. To be restored takes time; focusing on God and His greatness renews us with hope and joy regarding this life and anticipation for eternity.

 

Why? Because the Lord is restoring you to be better than before. You aren't being restored to the exact moment in which you failed, or the moment you were weak. You are being restored better than ever.

 

The increase is coming. The advancement is coming. The Lord is restoring You for His glory, His purpose, and His honor. You get the benefits, the upgrades, and the seat at the table prepared by the Lord.

"The Unveiling - What Is God Doing?"

By Joe Joe Dawson

 

 

What Is God Doing?

 

Numerous times, God has spoken to me about how He is always doing more behind the scenes than we could ever imagine. However, in the last several months the Lord has spoken this to me more and more. Many in this season may be looking at their own outward, personal circumstances or what is happening in the world and find themselves wondering, what is God doing? I want you to be encouraged, my friends! God is at work on your behalf to answer your prayers and launch you into the destiny He has for you.

 

He is about to unveil what He is doing, you just cannot see what He is doing yet. God is also moving and shaking significant realms of influence in the earth and we will soon see the great unveiling of what He is doing!

 

In the upcoming season, God is about to unveil His plans for His people and for the nations. If you ever think God is silent or still, you are mistaken! Learn to trust that even when we cannot see or sense what the Lord is up to, He is always up to something. When Scripture tells us not to walk by sight and not to lean on our own understanding it is because what we see or feel in the natural will almost always be a lie.

 

Learn to see and operate in the Spirit, not the natural. What God is always working to accomplish outside of our understanding or sight is more powerful than we could ever imagine. However, I truly believe a great unveiling of the plans and will of God is on the horizon, and many will see His glory on display in the earth and in their lives like never before.

 

God Is Always Working

 

When God unveils His purposes and plans for you, you will never question the previous seasons of delay or disappointment again. God is always working on your behalf. Do not give in to fear or anxiety about the future. Don't ever allow anything to steal your peace or cause you to doubt what God has promised you. Instead, spend your time in focused prayer and watch what God will do!  

 

Pray for the will of God and His Kingdom to come in your life, in your city, and in your nation. Pray the will of God and believe that God is already moving to answer your prayers!

 

When God unveils what He is doing in our cities and nations, all the world will have to stop and acknowledge the power and presence of God. I truly believe God is about to release a revival and awakening that will be poured out worldwide. In the midst of national calamity or moral decay, God has always used those seasons to raise up reformers out of His remnant. I believe God is raising up champions for the Kingdom of God in this season.

 

When God unveils what He has been doing in this upcoming season, I believe many people who have been hidden in His presence in a wilderness season will suddenly step into places of great influence. Get ready for the great unveiling that is on the horizon for the Body of Christ!

You Are In Training For Reigning

By Russ Walden

 

 

 

 The Father says today, you are in training for reigning. Ruling and reigning in Me is not something you are waiting to die in order to step into . Regardless of what men may say — you are a principality and a power in My kingdom NOW. You are a king and priest by My ordination. Are you a king? Are you a priest? Come into agreement with My word, says The Father. You are a king — for I AM the King of kings. Just as I have a domain and a jurisdiction, even so you have a domain and a jurisdiction.

 

Stand up in your life and claim your territory. Every place where you place your foot, I have given it to you. Everything you put your hand to I will prosper. I AM not demanding you to live on the razor’s edge of some mystical purpose. My wisdom is easy to be entreated and readily found out as you quiet yourself and say “yes” to Me.

 

I have placed upon you the robes of entitlement in My Kingdom. I have put the signet of My favor upon your hand. The Angels of heaven gather around you on a daily basis to go out before you and make your way prosperous. Expect blessing. Anticipate benefit and dividend of My Glory to be paid into your life.

 

Know that My default plan for you is that you live a life whereby everything you say and do is as effective as if I said it and did it. There will come opposition, but did I not say resist? As you resist the devil, the only option available is for him to flee. Resist the enemy with My Word. Resist the enemy with My Promise. Resist the enemy by renewing your mind to everything I have said about you in My Word, and from that vantage point you will go forth conquering and to conquer.

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

 

 

AN ABIDING OBEDIENCE PRODUCES AN ABOUNDING GRACE IN ONE'S LIFE

                                                                 

Words of prophecy:

 

*____Blessed - with blessings they cannot contain - are those who enter [through a steadfast faith, love and obedience] into the "Promised Land" [the fullness of Kingdom-living] in this season.

 

____ ...."For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [outside.] I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, how blessed is the man/woman who trusts in You!".... Psalms 84:10-12 NASB

 

        ...."'For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall. You will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day which I am preparing,' says the LORD of hosts".... Malachi 4:1-3 NASB

 

        ...."When the LORD brought back the captive ones of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter and our tongue with joyful shouting; Then they said among the nations, "The Lord has done great things for them.' The LORD has done great things for us; We are glad...... Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying [his] bag of seed, shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves [with him.]".... Psalms 126:1-6 NASB

 

"perfect obedience" - receiving a revelation of the Father's Will, and then carrying out that Will in the timing [unction] and power of the Holy Spirit - alone [through the continual exercising of an absolute faith working through a perfect love];

 

"abound" - to occur or exist in great quantities; to be rich or well supplied; to be filled;

Your Head Will Surely Be Lifted Up

By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

 

 

I heard, “Your head will surely be lifted up!”

 

Discovering Christ In Ephesians

 

We saw from our last discussion that, as those that are of the family of Christ, as those that have learned Christ, we are not to walk as other Gentiles walk in the emptiness of their mind, but we are to walk in the righteousness of God as those whose mind are enlightened with the knowledge of the Son of God.

 

Then the apostle continues;

 

“That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts.” Ephesians 4:22.

 

This is a very strong exhortation. “That ye put off concerning the former conversation….”

 

The apostle looks at them as regenerated sons of God, thus their former way of living ought to be put aside. By saying “former” he affirms they are already created in Christ Jesus.

 

Now who are they to put off? We hear “the old man” the depraved nature we inherited from the womb as sons of Adam.

 

We all are naturally born with this fallen nature, until we receive the nature of the second man called the Christ.

 

We are born after the flesh sinners because of the old man we inherited from the womb. A man fashioned in sin who by the fall lost his innocence and became “corrupt according to the deceitful lusts….”

 

Now observe carefully the last part of the verse “deceitful lusts….”

 

This is saying all the passions, the propensities that the world offer, all the promises of a better life, a true satisfaction, a glorious estate are just vain promises. All what the world offers outside of Christ is deception.

 

Whatsoever pleasure the world promises is illusive. It is a plunge to ruin. Many follow a promised better life but end up in blunt betrayal.

 

The passions of the world are mere flatteries orchestrated for betrayal. As the enlightened, we are not to yield to these vanities, we are not to be led astray by these empty deceits.

 

Then we hear the apostle continue;

 

“And be renewed in the spirit of your mind….” Ephesians 4:23.

 

Let your mind be renovated. Let your soul be renewed after your new nature. Let your character be reformed after the image of him who created you.

 

It is not just enough to be regenerated, the end cause is that we be confirmed to the image of his son. For this reason you were saved.

 

“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” Romans 8:29.

 

God lives in you, he is the one you have be fashioned after. But your mind and body needs a conformation to your new spiritual state. Your spirit is created perfect, which we are to always put on.

 

“And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” Ephesians 4:24.

 

Observe carefully the above verse, it says, “put on the new man….”

 

This means the new man is accessible by you. And who is the new man? Your very nature, the spirit of Christ in you.

 

This is your regenerated self. The real you. Let it manifest in your soul, and body. Put the light on!

 

You see, that which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

 

“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” John 3:6.

 

If you are born of the Spirit then you are spirit. You are spirit, having a soul and living in a body. If the real you is the spirit, then how are you created?

 

We hear, “Which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness….”

 

You are created righteous and truly holy. You are righteous by nature. You are righteous and holy by creation, and not by what you will do or have done. You are born again righteous.

 

If you are created by God a man then you will always be a man by creation. Even so are you. You are created after God, you are created exactly like God, you are created in every aspect according to God in righteousness and true holiness.

 

Where the old you was fashioned in sin (Psalm 51:5), the new you is fashioned in righteousness and true holiness.

 

You can not help but be righteous for this is how you were created. You are by nature righteous and truly holy.

 

This same truth is expressed by the apostle in his letter to the church at Corinth.

 

“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”2 Corinthians 5:21.

 

Observe carefully the word “made” from the above verse. The Greek word translated for made is the word ‘ginomai’ which means to cause to be, to generate, to become, to come into being (Strong’s G1096).

 

Observe again the words used in the definition, to generate, and to come into being.

 

In Christ we are generated righteous. We are brought into being or existence righteous and truly holy.

 

We are skunked when we consent to a religious calumny about who we are. Every conceited importunity to seek for what we already are is a demonic shenanigan.

 

So here is a wise exhortation by Paul to let your life and nature that is created in God come forth. Wear in your consciousness who you truly are and let the world see and experience the righteousness and holiness of God flowing through you. Turn on the lights O’ righteous and truly holy one!

 

Confession:

I am a new creation. Born again righteous. I am truly holy.

 

The righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. The light of the world in Christ. A chosen generation. I am a royal priesthood. I am a divine species — a peculiar people.

 

A living manifestation of the righteousness and holiness of God. I am conscious of who God has made me. I know who God says I am. I put on the new man, bold and fearless.

 

I cannot be deceived. I walk in the wisdom and power of God. Doing mighty works that are only synonymous with who I am in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!

 

Prophetic Insight:

I heard, “I have not left you, so do not think I AM unconcerned. My Word is coming into being. Yes, the Fire, but it is for purification.

 

Not a single hair on your head shall be lost as you stay focused looking to Me. Soon it will be over and you will be restored.

 

Your head will surely be lifted up above your enemies. You will surely enjoy the days of prosperity.”

 

“Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him. The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance.” Psalm 105:19-21.

Be a Miracle Believer!

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

“All of the promises that I have given you will be realized by those who embrace them by unwavering, relentless faith,” says The LORD.

 

“Believe what I have said no matter what you see, what you hear, what you feel, or what others are speaking.

 

“Just hold steady, and never give up to the distracting, dissenting voices that never believe My Word, and their lives prove it. My Word is uncompromising, everlasting, powerful, and miracle working.

 

“Believe in Miracles. Believe in Me. Believe that I AM able and willing to give you everything that you need, and much more.

 

“My resources are inexhaustible, my blessings abundant, and I have hidden treasures that I will reveal to those who refuse to doubt.

 

“You do not have to have a vote on what I can and will do for you! The majority does not rule,” says The LORD.

 

“Your faith in My infallible WORD, My inexhaustible love, My unmatched power is what will release your miracle,” says The LORD.

 

“ONLY BELIEVE, and never compromise. Stand for what you believe, and expect your miracle. For I desire to pour out miracles and it is MY WILL to heal, repair, revive, refresh, renew, and empower.

 

“Life is what I have promised, and as you remain on the path of faith, and not veer to the left nor the right, you will walk into your miracle, and there will be nothing less than what you can and will believe Me for,” says The LORD.

Discerning the Time

By Robert Blackburn

 

 

There were many instructions that The LORD gave for this day in which we now live.

 

For the moment, we need to hold up trying to see how much we think we can be like the Apostles, and listen to Jesus Christ.

 

If we have to go back and re-study some of the things we were once taught, so be it. Many of us want to know the truth.

 

Let us lay everything else aside for the moment and hear The Word of The LORD. “The Spirit” is Truth. And if we want to know The Truth, we must hear what The Spirit says — now!

 

The desire and practice of following our own program and not focusing totally on following the leading of The Holy Ghost in all that we do, sunk some of us.

 

It’s not in me to understand why we would do such a thing, or allow anyone else in charge of us to do so.

 

Does it sound almost moot today to say that The Holy Ghost can do more in a moment than we could do in a lifetime.

 

Well, so much for how we got there. The Clarion call goes forth today, what are we going to do now? Do we go back to following The Spirit?

 

I wanted to say again, that we are not going to help anyone today if we do not write or share from our own circumstances, right where we are today and what is going on with us personally.

 

I don’t mean our personal business in that sense — but our real journey.

 

We might say one more time, as it was declared in olden times, if the enemy is not oppressing you right now, there’s a reason.

 

It’s likely because you are no threat to him and his kingdom. If God so chose to use you in this hour, you’ve been catching it; and still are.

 

If the saints of God are about to rise up and do a mighty work, the devil is going to do everything he can to knock us out — once and for all!

 

Oh LORD, I pray that you give me the strength to speak in a kind and loving way. I am aware of some folk who claim to be full of The Holy Spirit who seem to be just fine — laughing, talking and simply declaring how good God is.

 

Saying, when you get up, just decide you are going to have a great day and don’t let negative thoughts come into your mind and spirit.

 

What do you do when you’re so sick you can’t hardly stand up — you’ve been so oppressed by the spirit of darkness that your entire body, mind and spirit is frazzled?

 

Those you wish to talk to are in some kind of fog, one that was already there before this pandemic came along. In a true delusion.

 

Many of us have learned the benefits of being positive — it works! But I’m afraid some are about to find out, that ‘the power of positive thinking’ will do nothing to stand up to pure demonic resources.

 

It seems almost a waste of words to say we are in a very different time, like nothing we have ever encountered before.

 

All the rules have changed. It appears that most Christians are not even interested in what the Revelation said about the time we see now — much less what’s really behind it, or where it’s actually going.

 

I could cry loud, that they seem so distracted, they aren’t even seeing what Jesus Himself said about the hour we are living in this time.

 

There is a passive state of mind all over our land that shrugs and says, “Well, what can we do about it anyway….?”

 

The enemy want us to give up our Faith; that is a real Truth, and all of hell has been turned out to see that this is done.

 

I’m watching what I say closely. I have never known such pressure and oppression.

 

Okay. I have to be real. I said to God, “You have to do something soon!”

 

I remember a verse about no Faith being left on the earth (Luke 18:8). We’re human. It came to me yesterday, that when enough people cry out to God, He will indeed do something.

 

But not enough folk have cried out to Him — not yet.

 

Many down here are meaner than they were before, much harsher.

 

In the name of God, I don’t want to see more trouble come — but I’m afraid it will.

 

There is a price for turning away from God, and we can no longer deny that so much of this occurred here, long before this plague came upon us.

 

Let’s don’t be pointing fingers at any one certain group and blaming them. What has The Church done?

 

How much did we become about self, and making our own idols?

 

I know that God spoke to me a while ago and said to keep trusting Him.

 

He is in control! He will move, and quickly! Our cries will be heard!

Granted Prophetic Insight

By Abel Praise

 

 

 

Granted Prophetic Insight

 

When you’ve been granted insight into the prophetic chart of your life; you know when the High Table invite [Potiphar] is too early, and when it’s right on time [Butler].

 

You know what porridge [Esau] is cancerous; and what vegetable [Daniel] is nutritious.

 

You dance to a heavenly rhythm; and march to a dictated beat.

 

The course of destiny isn’t the ramble for opportunities. It’s a preordained path where you tear down doors and rebuild new ones.

 

Many will be faced with destiny making decisions: a destiny killer cloaked opportunity to bow and receive all the kingdoms of this world.

 

In that moment, your future will be determined. It’s not about opportunities; it’s about fulfilling a scalable and measurable mission.

 

Economic Thrones

 

When economic thrones in the earth are judged, the systems, process, principles and pathways by which their wealth flows in the earth crumbles.

 

The principles that produces wealth cease to produce wealth; the pathways through which wealth flows cease to have the usual traffic of wealth, and the dependents on such systems experience what is called scarcity.

 

It will take the process of raising new thrones, which will establish new principles, systems, pathways for the flow of wealth to see the redistribution of wealth to aligned people”.

 

This is a time for the “Josephs” and “Bezaleels” to begin the process of birthing new economic models by The Spirit of The LORD for the proper administration of the wealth of nations”

Preserved and Protected

By Greg Laurie

           

LISTEN

 

 

 

“But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.”

—2 Thessalonians 3:3

 

 

 

If you were to go to an amusement park with your children, you wouldn’t forget about them, would you? Of course not. Because you love your children, you’re aware of where they are.

 

You don’t forget someone that you care about.

 

God cares about you too, and He’s continually keeping you. Hebrews 7:25 says, “Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf” (NLT).

 

In fact, there are many passages in the Bible that remind us of the keeping and protective power of God. We read in 2 Thessalonians 3:3, “But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one” (NLT). And Jude 1:24 says, “Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault” (NLT).

 

Also, 1 Peter 1:5 reminds us, “And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see” (NLT). The original language uses a perfect tense, meaning that God is continually protecting you.

 

An older man who was known for his godly life was asked what he did when he was tempted. He replied, “Well, I just say, ‘Lord, your property is in danger.’”

 

You are God’s property. You belong to the Lord. The Bible says, “You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price” (1 Corinthians 6:19–20 NLT).

 

So God preserves you. He protects you. He keeps you by His power. So the next time the Devil comes knocking at your door, just say, “Lord, would you mind getting that?”

 

That’s the way to deal with the enemy’s attacks.

"An Opportune Time! Step Out of Strongholds

and Step Into Faith!"

By Sara Whitten

 

 

Recently, I was feeling overwhelmed by a lot of changes happening in my life as a result of global situations. As I prayed about it, God reminded me of the word "strongholds." IT IS TIME TO BREAK UP SOME STRONGHOLDS. I decided to dive deeper into that word.

 

How We Build Our "Safe Place"

 

In Strong's Concordance the word "stronghold" is reference 3794 in the Greek, "ochuroma." Its root means "to fortify." Fortify means "to reinforce by ADDING MATERIAL" and "to make strong."

 

Instantly I got a spiritual picture of how we build our "safe place." When trouble comes, where do our thoughts go? Each time we worry, we reinforce a stronghold. Each time we remember God's testimonies and goodness, we reinforce HIM as our safe place. We are building with our minds! Out of the heart, things flow. Our actions spring from our thoughts. For instance, if you are EXPECTING a certain outcome, more than likely you will act and prepare accordingly. This is why renewal starts in our MINDS.

 

So many times, in the Bible, we are reminded that our FAITH grows our deeds. While deeds do not produce faith, faith without works is dead. You'd be hard-pressed to find a "hall of faith-er" (Hebrews 11) who didn't have to act in accordance to the promise God gave them (like Noah's obedience in building the ark, for example). The enemy knows this also, so he tries to prevent anything from coming to fruition by starting in our minds and tempting us into preservation or comfort.

 

Strong's definition for stronghold also includes "MILITARY stronghold." The word "military" is not accidental. Strongholds form because this is a BATTLE—a spiritual one, and a strategic one. Because there is trouble in this world, we NEED to seek safety, refuge, or a stronghold in SOMETHING; and now, more than ever, we need to make certain that it is in the Lord!

 

A synonym for stronghold is "castle." Castle carries with it a feeling of royalty, governmental power, and authority. What are you giving authority to in your life? Are you letting despair or worry or worldly things take the throne in your thoughts? If so, it's not too late to tear it down!

 

An Opportune Time

 

Part of the definition in Strong's includes that this word is "used figuratively of a false argument in which a person seeks 'shelter' ('a safe place') to escape reality." Certainly this is how strongholds of the enemy sneak in. In the Garden, Adam and Eve were given twisted arguments that led them to believe that their long-term advantage for staying safe was in eating the forbidden fruit and knowing all God knew. To further illustrate this, there's a reason the Word tells us that the enemy saw an opportune time when Jesus was fasting in the wilderness and weak, and there's a reason, after the temptation, that it says the enemy left Him "until an opportune time" (Luke 4:13).  

 

If this year has beaten you down, it is an OPPORTUNE TIME. Opportune, by definition, is "a fitting, or advantageous time" and "suitable or convenient for a particular occurrence." These are times when the Lord is poised to do big things! It is time to get our hopes up and be vigilant about not staying dormant in the ways the Lord is calling us to act. These are also times when the enemy seeks to slip in those false arguments. Just like the temptation of Jesus, those false arguments can be masked in comfort, ease, or an escape from reality. Do not take the enemy's counterfeit comfort over the Lord's real and eternal comfort! (We see in Adam and Eve how that worked out...)

 

Strong's also notes, "oxyroma [from the root oxyroo, 'fortify'] is also used for a prison in antiquity." Have you ever been in a bad situation so long that it feels almost scary to leave? God is highlighting, right now, that there are people being called out of long-standing, FAMILIAR prisons. They have come to know and even find comfort in them, so it's hard to step out in accordance with the words they are hearing from the Lord. As they do, however, God has something BETTER that has been waiting.

 

Strong's also describes strongholds as "of the arguments and reasoning’s by which a disputant endeavors to fortify his opinion and defend it against his opponent." The biggest attacks right now are going to be by our disputant, the enemy, and his subtle questions of reasoning..."Are you sure God said...?" "Is it really worth it?" "What if...?" Don't let the enemy build his strongholds by continuing or fortifying his perspective. Fight back like Jesus did—with God's words!

 

How to Demolish Enemy Strongholds

 

This specific word for stronghold is only used ONCE in the entire Bible, and it is found in 2 Corinthians 10:4: "The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds."

 

What's interesting is that phrase "On the contrary." Do you realize this means that the weapons of the world or arguments of the enemy do NOT have the power to demolish strongholds? God is very clear that the weapons of the world are not our weapons but rather that our battle will be won by STANDING ON HIS WORD and ACTING ACCORDING TO HIS SPIRIT. This weapon of His Word not only tears down strongholds, but it exposes and discerns.

 

"Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God." (Ephesians 6:17)

 

"For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12)

 

How to Build a Foundation of Faith

 

So what is the word for now? God keeps reminding me, "REMEMBER AND OBEY." God is building MASSIVE things in this time, and they are going to be contrary to what is happening in the world and its agenda. You must REMEMBER the blueprint He has given you (so that you are reminded of what to reinforce and build on), and OBEY (actually do what He says).

 

"Why do you call Me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? As for everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears My words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete." (Luke 6:46-49)  

 

The foundation in this passage is OBEDIENCE. Like Hebrews 11, it's obedience which comes from a believing heart that builds long-standing testaments to faith. In the Old Testament, the Israelites would stack stones to remember times of deliverance when God met them and came through for them.

 

Our lives are building something...Are we building strongholds of the enemy or building testimonies in the making, founded on God's words, and established in faith?

 

The precious words directly from the Holy Spirit to our hearts are the most profound, so here's a quick check to pray through and ask the Lord to speak specifically to your situations and life. Journal what you get, so that in these pivotal days you can REMEMBER and OBEY.

 

Questions to Help You Get Started

 

Ask the Holy Spirit to help illuminate these things, and record what you get:

 

• What strongholds of the enemy are in place right now and keeping me stuck?

 

• What defense/strength/comfort does this stronghold appear to give me?

 

• God, show me the limitations or traps in this pattern of thinking.

 

• Now, Lord, tell me YOUR words about how You are that defense/strength/comfort in my life.

 

• Show me how I can "build" through my actions and thoughts in a way that reinforces Your words and tears down this old pattern of behavior or thinking.

 

Church, it's time to step out of those strongholds of seeming "comfort and protection" that the enemy offers as a cheap counterfeit and step INTO the eternal comfort and protection of the Lord, which is found right smack dab in the middle of those leaps of faith that He has coordinated to get you to your destiny.

A Place for the Lord

By Derek Prince

 

 

Psalm 132:3–5, 8

 

I will not enter my house or go to my bed – I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids, till I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob. Arise, O Lord, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.     NIV

 

 

     Those words were spoken by David. He’d become conscious of the need to bring back to Jerusalem the ark of the Lord, which had been taken by the Philistines. But he’d come to realize also that he had to prepare a place, find and prepare a place, before he could invite the Lord to take up His resting place in the midst of His people. And there’s an important principle there, we need to prepare a place for the Lord before we ask Him to take up His residence with us.

 

     There are two great hindrances, I believe, to the Lord dwelling with us. Each of them in English begins with the letter “p.” The first is pride, the second is prejudice. As long as we’re arrogant and haughty, we do not have a place for the Lord. As long as we’re occupied with our own ways, our own thoughts, our own concepts, we’re determined to make God act the way we think He ought to act. Those two barriers of pride and prejudice can keep the Lord from finding a resting place in our hearts and lives.

 

     So let’s remember that before we invite the Lord to make His resting place, to come with the ark of His might and bring the fullness of His presence and His blessing, we have to be sure that we’ve prepared an appropriate place for God to rest in.

"God Says: I Am Revamping Your Sense of Identity!"

By Jamie Rohrbaugh

 

 

Beloved, are you struggling with feeling overwhelmed lately? Have you been feeling like a disappointment and a failure to yourself and others? If so, the Lord wants to encourage you today.

 

This is what I heard the Lord say:

 

"I am revamping your sense of identity yet again, My child. You have been worrying and discouraged because the things that you used to be—the things that gave you a sense of identity—are no longer. Those things no longer exist, and this has caused you a great amount of sadness.

 

The Master Sculptor Is Revealing You to the World

 

"However, My child, I allowed these things to be stripped away because I am unveiling yet another layer of who you really are.

 

"Notice that the way you think about things and the way I think about things are different. If you were a sculpture in progress—a block of marble—you would be worried about all the pieces you were losing as I chipped away at various pieces of you. However, all the while, I would be delighting in each chip that I removed, because each piece I pulled away from you revealed a little bit more of your true form to the world. That is what I am doing in your character and heart right now; I am revealing you to the world.  

 

"In this world you have trials and tribulations. You live in a sinful world, but I am forming you into My image. So piece by piece, like a master sculptor, I am removing the effects of sin from your life. They are falling off of you like scales. But, My love, this work is necessary. This process is necessary.

 

"I know you feel hurt as I remove things that bind you, but soon you will feel so much freer than you ever felt before. You took your identity from certain things that you no longer needed, but I am answering your prayers to be free from the shackles that bind.

 

You Are Secure in Me

 

"My child, you are secure in Me. You are loved in Me. You are who I made you to be. You are in Me, and I am in you; in Me you live and move and have your being. And since I gave you your very 'being'—your existence—then I am within My rights to dictate, decide, and determine who and what you are. This 'who and what you are,' according to My opinion and My opinion only, is the only aspect of your identity that matters. Everything else will fall into place if you remain abiding in Me.

 

"You are secure and safe in Me. I am reforming your sense of who you are. I am re-securing your sense of favor; I am tying you to Myself and bringing your attention to the security of the ties that bind you to Me. I am revamping your sense of identity. Too much and too often you have looked to the external to discover who you are and what you can do, but I remind you again that in Me you live and move and have your being.

 

"You can only exist—truly exist—when you are hidden in Me. You can eke out an existence elsewhere, but it will not be fruitful. Only in Me can you not only survive but thrive, as I have made you to do. You were born to fly, you know.  

 

Help Is on the Way!

 

"I hear your frustration right now. I hear the cry of your heart. And I want you to know: HELP IS ON THE WAY. MY help is on the way. Indeed, I am helping you even now; but the help you are looking for is on the way. The help you expect but have never experienced before is on the way. The help I give to you, that no other can give, is on the way.

 

"Just abide in Me. Stop worrying, fretting, wishing that things were different. Stop beating yourself up because you can't do any better. Do what you can in obedience to Me and ask Me to do the rest; I will. I will help you.

 

You Are More Than a Conqueror

 

"Beloved child, you are more than a conqueror through My Son Jesus. You feel like an absolute failure, but you are NOT. You feel inadequate—woefully inadequate—but you are not that either. Allow Me to minister to you tonight, in the night seasons...expect Me to show up for you and speak to you...I will. –Love, Your Doting Abba Father."

I Give You Access To All That Heaven Affords

By Russ Walden

 

 

 

The Father says today, I give you access to all that heaven affords. In the heavens, you will find laid up in store every resource, every strategy and promise that My Word makes available through the work of The Cross. I haven’t called you to achieve by human effort. I do not need your help, but I do require your cooperation. I AM the one who comes alongside of you in the midst of your effort and adds My Nature and character to decide the outcome.

 

Your outcome is not defined on human terms by what man says, but your outcome is determined by the word of favor that I have spoken over you before the foundation of the world. You are a child of My favor. You are a recipient of My favor. I AM making things come through for you, not because of your striving or efforts, but because I have set My Love upon you and purposed before time that you would prosper and overcome.

 

Reject all contrary thinking to My promise. Guard your heart from the false teaching of downturn and diminishment. I did not go to the Cross to diminish you — I went to the Cross to enlarge you and give you life and life more abundantly. If you, being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will I bestow upon you all that heaven affords because of My great love wherewith I have loved you.

 

Beloved, if I withheld not heaven’s best, but sent My only Son to suffer and die in your behalf — is there ANY OTHER THING I would withhold from you? This isn’t what you have always been taught but choose to be a Father-pleaser and believe the GOOD report, for that is your portion, says the Father, for in Me you will never be disappointed.

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

 

 

IT IS MUCH EASIER FOR ONE TO FOLLOW AFTER "FLESH AND BLOOD"

                                                                

Words of prophecy:

 

*____It will either be a "sustained" obedience unto the death of the self-life [and, thus, perfect entrance into superabundant life in the Kingdom and the fullness of Covenant] or a "willful" disobedience [rooted in heart-fellowship with the world and its ways] unto the death of the physical life in the case of many in this final hour.

 

"Sustain" - endure without giving way or yielding;

 

____...."Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether that be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness [right doing and right standing with God]?".... Romans 6:16 The Amplified Translation

 

____...."Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision".... Joel 3:14 NASB

 

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

 

        ...."Remember Lot's wife [Gen. 19:26]!".... Luke 17:32 NASB

 

"easy" - not hard or difficult; requiring no great labour or effort [in this case "faith"]; not tight or constricting;

 

        ...."If anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny himself [forget, ignore, disown, and lose sight of himself and his own interests] and take up his cross, and [joining Me as a disciple and siding with My party] follow with Me [continually, cleaving steadfastly to Me]".... Mark 8:34 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them".... Deuteronomy 30:19-20 NASB

 

        ...."Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it. But the gate is narrow [contracted by pressure] and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it [and walk in it]".... Matthew 7:13-14 The Amplified Translation

 

____It is a much "easier" thing [to the soul {mind, will, emotions} and the body] for one to follow after "flesh and blood" [outward appearances] than to follow after the Father and His Will [Word]. For the way is "narrow" [contracted by pressure - through much trial and tribulation] that leads one to the place wherein they will be found "abiding" [dwelling] in the Love of God - at all cost to "themselves".

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who are continually found walking on the "narrow path" - the path of righteousness that leads to overflowing Life [Zoe]. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

 

        ...."In the way [path] of righteousness [right standing and communion with the Father and His Word] is [the continual impartation of] life [Zoe - divine Life, Grace, divine Love, divine Light, divine Wisdom, resurrection power - first to oneself and, then to all those who cross their path], and in its pathway there is no death [no death in any of its forms {darkness, fear, sickness and disease etc.} can remain standing {functional}]".... Proverbs 12:28 NASB

HIS “YES” IS STILL “YES”

By Lana Vawser

 

 

This morning I heard the Lord say “My YES, is still YES” and I began to see many across the body of Christ who have heard a promise from the Lord and have been believing and contending for this promise, and in the last while, there has not been one giant that has stood before their promise, but numerous.

 

The level of battle and opposition against the promise of the Lord has been so intense, that I saw many have come to a place of even doubting whether what they heard from the Lord regarding this promise was actually right. I saw many beginning to question “maybe I heard God wrong?”, “maybe I’ve misinterpreted?”, “maybe what I have been believing for all along is just not my portion?”.

 

The words from the Lord heart resounded so loudly over this deep inner wrestle that many were facing. “My YES, is still YES”

 

Immediately I was surrounded by 2 Corinthians 1:20 “For all God’s promises have been fulfilled with a resounding “YES!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his Glory” (NLT)

 

“For all God’s promises find their “yes” of fulfillment in him. And as his “yes” and our “amen” ascend to God, we bring him glory” (TPT)

 

Friend, God has not forgotten. God has not forgotten you. God is faithful to complete that which He has spoken. I heard the Lord say “Keep standing on MY YES with YOUR YES”, continue to agree with Me, for I am going to fulfill

 that which I have spoken (Isaiah 55:11) and the battle may be intense, the journey has been wearying, but the tidal wave of My refreshment and strengthening is upon you.”

 

“The waves of opposition have come and attempted to take you further away from the promise that I have spoken to you, but I say unto you that the TIDE is going to TURN. By My mighty outstretched arm, I am going to move in power and I will part the Red Sea of IMPOSSIBILITY!!!”

 

“Everyone will say, “Come and see the incredible things God has done; it will take your breath away! He multiplies miracles for His people! He made a highway going right through the Red Sea as the Hebrews passed through on dry ground, exploding with joyous excitement over the miracles of God.” (Psalm 66:5-6 - TPT)

 

The enemy has come so ferociously with hit after hit, blow after blow, to ‘wind’ you and ‘take your breath away’, but I prophesy that  the INCREDIBLE things God is going to do, the MULTIPLE miracles, the powerful deliverance, the WAY that God is going to make a way through the impossibility into the manifestation of what He has spoken, WILL TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY in AWE and WONDER of His mighty power.

 

I heard the Lord speaking over these ones “You WILL have a POWERFUL testimony that the harvest of souls will be drawn to” Friend, this is bigger than you.

 

The Lord is faithful to fulfill to you that which He has spoken, He loves you so dearly, but also the Lord sees the HARVEST of souls that will come to the feast table of your testimony, to taste and see the goodness of the Lord. (Psalm 34:8) The impossibilities that have come up against your promise/s recently, the pressure and opposition worse than ever, the screaming intimidation that continues to lure “GIVE UP! GIVE UP”, have ALL come because the enemy is terrified of what God is going to do for you and through you. The enemy is terrified of the way the Lord’s kingdom will go forth through you. The enemy is doing all he can to stop you. The enemy is also terrified of SO MANY SOULS coming to know Jesus through your testimonies.

 

The testimony of His miraculous power in these areas of promise that the Lord gave you, the places where impossibilities seemed to increase by the day, those places, will be some of the greatest demonstrations of His power that YOU will tell the world about and MANY will come to know Jesus.

 

Do NOT give up! Stand up and join your YES with His YES afresh, then watch and see God do the rest. You are closer to the manifestation of God’s promise and divine justice than you realize.

This Is How Your Light Will Shine!

By Jo Ellen Stevens

 

 

 

The Sweet By-and-by

 

The Church is always preparing us to die and go to the sweet by-and-by.

 

All that is well and good, but what some of us need is The Church to show us how to live the abundant life in the nasty now and now!

 

It is time to be the light in the darkness of the night!

 

People need to see the light in us! Otherwise Jesus would have saved us and took us on to heaven when we were born again!

 

You are here for a reason! Arise shine!

 

Teenager's Cry Blog - www.forthebrokenhearted.net

 

 

No Darkness in Him!

 

Every visitation or dream I have ever had of a heavenly being the beings (Angels) are always distinguishable in that they are filled with light!

 

There is no darkness in Him and we are in Him….

 

Think of this! You are to be a reflection of that light! A light carrier so to speak!

 

“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5.

 

“Every gift God freely gives us is good and perfect, streaming down from the Father of lights, who shines from the heavens with no hidden shadow or darkness and is never subject to change.” James 1:17 TPT.

To the Five-Fold

To the Five-Fold Ministry who are here on earth at this moment in time… YOU ARE HERE TO RAISE UP AN ARMY, NOT PERFORM FOR AN AUDIENCE!

 

“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ — from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.” Ephesians 4:11-16.

 

Teenager's Cry Blog - www.forthebrokenhearted.net

 

 

This Is How Your Light Will Shine!

Some of the people whom we are pointing the finger at, are in their situation because The Church only pointed at their mess and didn’t give them a message of the Good news!

 

The LORD just said: “If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, if you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday.

 

The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

 

Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.” (Isaiah 54:9-12).

Abraham Lincoln’s Dog

Just getting this out there.

 

I am seeking The LORD on this but I dreamed I was taking care of Abraham Lincoln’s dog.

 

This morning when I Googled Abraham Lincoln’s dog I found out that his dog was assassinated a year after Abraham Lincoln was assassinated.

 

True story. MORE TO COME…. The dog was named Fido — by the way — and was yellow. I honestly had never heard that story till now.

Who Can Be A Partaker In The Mighty Move Of God?

By Cathy Meijer

 

 

“Adonoi, where are Thy former loving kindnesses, which Thou didst swear unto Dovid in Thy emunah?” Tehellim 89 495 (50) OJB.

 

“Where, Adonai, are the acts of grace you once did, those which, in your faithfulness, you swore to David?” Psalm 89:49 CJB.

 

Since 2005 Abba gave me a message that He was preparing the “sons” — Male and Female in HIS Spirit — to come visible and they will shine as an army under L-rd Tze’vaot** in the last days.

 

They will perform miracles as we never saw before! But what does it take, to take part of this army?

 

This past week I saw myself twice laying in a wooden coffin.

 

This is what it means: Being death to self as dry as wood!

 

But with one sparkle of His Fire, we are filled with Ruach Ha’Kodesh and will rebuild HIS Temple of living stones!

 

“The dry bones will live again!” Ezekiel 37 — Dry Bones Live Again!

 

“Go up to the har (mountain), and bring etz, and build HaBeis [HaMikdash]; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith Hashem.” Chaggai 1:8 OJB.

 

“Go up into the hills, get wood, and rebuild the house. I will be pleased with that, and then I will be glorified,’ says Adonai.” Haggai 1:8 CJB.

 

In 2 Samuel we can read,

 

“When they arrived at Nakhon’s threshing-floor, the oxen stumbled; and ‘Uzah put out his hand to steady the ark of God.

 

But ADONAI’s anger blazed up against ‘Uzah, and G-d struck him down on the spot for his offense, so that he died there by the ark of G-d.”

 

And I asked the L-rd, “Why did Uzah have to die?”

 

Immediately Abba spoke and told me, “I AM cannot stumble, or fall. Can someone set me straight? Is there anyone who can correct Me? Is there anyone who can help Me? Flesh cannot stand in My Spirit!”

 

And as soon as he had spoken, His Ruach Ha’kodesh breathed on me, and I had to listen and write a Prophetic Word.

 

I started this letter, with Psalm 89. Abba gave me this text. And also the other ones I added here in this post.

 

” Where, Adonai, are the acts of grace you once did, those which, in your faithfulness, you swore to David?”

 

We often think our L-rd has changed his mind, and we ask Him where are you, are you still faithful?

 

This is the answer of our L-rd.

 

Thus saith the L-rd:

 

“I AM as I AM. Besides Me there is no other god.

 

‘I AM’ can not stumble, or fall.

 

Can someone set me straight? Is there anyone who can correct Me? Is there anyone who can help Me?

 

The moment, you are busy with other things, or people, more then you are listening and living IN Me, unexpected things will happen, and you will leave the narrow path.

 

As soon as you are walking in your fleshly ways of thinking, you also will bear the consequences of your behavior!

 

Which is often the moment, where My Child (children) cry out to Me: “Where, Adonai, are the acts of grace you once did, those which, in your faithfulness, you swore to David?”

 

I AM the same, I will not change! But YOU need to stay IN Me, remain in Me, as I will remain IN You, so we can bear fruit together!

 

You cannot correct Me, nor help me, if you become prideful, and think you can tell Me what to do, or how to do it, even in a tone of voice, that it might sound, as if we are equal, and you act in this way, make decisions in this behavior, it is profane fire in MY eyes.

 

And spiritual speaking you will die,(lose the anointing, quench His Spirit)

 

David danced before the ark of My presence, only wearing the linen ephod, which points out to Yeshua and His linen Mantle. He spoke and act out of the Ruach Ha’kodesh, out of MY wisdom!

 

When My Child is completely walking in my Ruach, the world will have an opinion and will mock and scorn you. Let Me be the One who takes care of that!

 

I only ask of you, to walk HUMBLY with your G-d!***

 

The Army I am creating is filled with My empty vessels who have been prepared to LIVE IN ME!

 

They wear the linen ephod, meaning the mantle of THE HIGH PRIEST.****

 

I AM will work through them, heal through them, and follow with signs and miracles, in such a way, that I Am will receive all honor and glory!

 

No flesh will operate in this army. My best wine I pour out over them as they gave me their dirty water!

 

Do not think it will not come, you have entered the season of the suddenly!”

 

Your Father.”

 

The custom of substituting the word “God” with G-d in English is based on the traditional practice in Jewish law of giving God’s Hebrew name a high degree of respect and reverence.

 

Furthermore, when written or printed, it is forbidden to destroy or erase the name of God (and many of the stand-in names used to refer to God).

** Tzevaot, Tsebaoth or Sabaoth ( צבאות‎, [tsvaot] “Armies.”

 

“Tzava” – “צבא” – “War & Army”

 

The word for “war” and “armies,” is the same Hebrew word in the singular, “צבא” -“tzava,” which can mean “Battle, a host, company, military service, army and war.”

 

*** Micah 6:8 “He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the L-RD require of you but to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your G-d.”

 

**** Psalm 110:4 proclaims that the Mossiach would be a priest according to the order of Melchizedek.

 

“And when they came to goren Nachon, Uzzah reached forth to the Aron HaElohim, and took hold of it; for the ox tilted it.

 

And the Af Hashem was kindled against Uzzah; and HaElohim struck him down there for the shal (error); and there he died by the Aron HaElohim.” Shmuel Bais 6:6-7 OJB.

 

“When they arrived at Nakhon’s threshing-floor, the oxen stumbled; and ‘Uzah put out his hand to steady the ark of God.

 

But ADONAI’s anger blazed up against ‘Uzah, and God struck him down on the spot for his offense, so that he died there by the ark of God.” 2 Samuel 6:6-7 CJB.

 

“Then Dovid returned to make brocha on his bais. And Michal Bat Sha’ul came out to meet Dovid, and said, How distinguished was the Melech Yisroel today, who disrobed today in the eyes of the amehot (handmaids) of his avadim, as one of the rekim (vain, empty fellows, indecent boors) shamelessly uncovered himself!

 

And Dovid said unto Michal, It was before Hashem, which chose me rather than thy av, and rather than all his bais, to appoint me Nagid over Am Hashem, over Yisroel: therefore, will I rejoice before Hashem.

 

And I will yet be more undignified than this and will be shafal (lowly) in mine own eyes; and of the amahot (maidservants) which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be held in honor.

 

Therefore Michal Bat Sha’ul had no yeled unto her yom mot.” Shmuel Bais 6:20-23 OJB

 

“When David returned to bless his household, Mikhal the daughter of Sha’ul came out to meet him and said, “Such honor the king of Isra’el earned for himself today – exposing himself before his servants’ slave-girls like some vulgar exhibitionist!”

 

>David answered Mikhal, “In the presence of ADONAI- who chose me over your father and over everyone in his family to make me chief over ADONAI’s people, over Isra’el – I will celebrate in the presence of ADONAI!

 

I will make myself still more contemptible than that, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes, but those slave-girls you mentioned will honor me!”

 

Mikhal the daughter of Sha’ul remained childless until the day she died.” 2 Samuel 6:20-23 CJB.

 

We can find the ephod in Exodus and Leviticus. And Prophet Samuel, described as wearing a “linen ephod” as he served the Lord as a boy (1 Samuel 2:18).

 

King David is wearing a linen ephod in 2 Samuel 6:14 and 1 Chronicles 15:27 as he and others carried the ark of the covenant into Yerushalayim.

 

A linen apron worn in ancient Hebrew rites especially : a vestment for the high priest. 2 : an ancient Hebrew instrument of priestly divination.

 

Yeshua wore a Linen Mantle and He worked in the Ruach Ha’Kodesh HOLY BREATH (Holy Spirit).

You are Hidden in His Name!

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

“Beloved. He who dwells in the Secret Place of the Most High abides under the Shadow of the Almighty, under My Wings, is your refuge.

 

My Shadow is your constant Abiding Place. Fear not the bad reports of war, pestilence, death and destruction.

 

My Shadow preserves you from daily arrows sent by the enemy and from the nightly terrors. Your Heavenly Father has placed Himself between you and your adversaries.

 

In the time of trouble, you are hidden, My Child. I AM your Keeper. You are hidden IN Christ Jesus.

 

You are hidden in My Name. My Shadow is always over you, Dear One. For you have died and your life is now hidden in Me.

 

Do you know that the Apostle Paul’s shadow was My Shadow?

 

That is why people were healed when they were touched by it. So shall it be with you, My Child. Rest in the coolness of My Shade, Dear One.

 

Your Covering is under the Nail-Scarred Hand. In My Shade, you shall take great delight. The sun shall not smite you by day nor the moon by night.

 

I shall preserve you from all evil, I shall preserve your soul. Fear not, My Child. My banner over you is Love. Your Beloved shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth and even forevermore.”

 

God’s Name-Yahweh-Hebrew letters- Yud Hei Vav Hei: “Behold the Hand, Behold the Nail”

 

“Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest, So is my Beloved among the young men. In His SHADE I took great delight and sat down, and His fruit was sweet to my taste. He has brought me to His banquet hall, and His banner over me is love.” Song of Solomon 2:3-4.

 

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge.” Psalm 91:1-4.

 

“In the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion, in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me.” Psalm 27:5.

 

“The LORD (Yahweh) is thy keeper: the LORD is thy SHADE upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.” Psalm 121:5-8.

 

“You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.” Psalm 145:16.

 

“Yet more and more believers were brought to the Lord; large numbers of both men and women. As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on cots and mats, so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. Crowds also gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those tormented by unclean spirits, and all of them were healed.” Acts 5:14-16.

 

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:2-3.

Choose Joy!

My Bride, many reasons surround the earth and could cause you to choose any other disposition but joy. Yet I invite you to look up! I have taken you through a season of maturing and developing, and now I challenge you to choose joy!

 

Choose joy despite what surrounds you; choose joy even in your circumstances and position. You are also positioned in heavenly places, and my joy will strengthen you for the road ahead.

 

James 1:2-3 ESV

 

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.

 

Ephesians 2:6 ESV

 

And raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

Sudden Change Coming!

By Jo Ellen Stevens

 

 

No matter what you are seeing or experiencing right now, I hear God saying, “I AM working My Plan for those who have sought me and have stood for the Salvation of their loved ones.

 

I AM moving a shifting and cleansing.

 

I AM shutting the door on many people’s past.

 

I AM doing a SPRING CLEANING so that when the heat comes, you and your loved ones will be able to stand in the shaking and will be equipped for the harvest!

 

Come July and August, you will see things suddenly change in favor of My Remnant and their families!”

Go Beyond Your Past!

By Dana Jarvis

 

 

Go beyond your past, go beyond the pain, go beyond where you have ever been or even dreamed that you could be.

 

There is a stirring right now that God is shaking things up. He is removing the cork and the cap for an explosion of His power, of His Word, of His glory like never before.

 

Some of you have been in a dark season of the soul, but God is about to cause the light of day to shine upon you.

 

No more shackles, no more shame. I hear a bell in the spirit being rung.

 

It is the bell of celebration, but also a declaration as his people become like a tree of life. They are getting back up again!

 

Refuse to be normal, refuse to be status quo, refuse to hold back, refuse to let yesterday determine your tomorrow.

 

Right now in this place, I declare power packed explosive breakthrough over the people of God.

 

God is clearing the runway and the promises are coming in for a landing!

"From Challenge to Change: What 2020 Taught Me"

By Kim Potter

 

 

 

2020 held a great deal of challenge, there is no question about that. However, if we look deeper, it was also plentiful in opportunities to learn spiritual lessons – lessons that if embraced will undoubtedly produce godly and lasting fruit.

 

Romans 8:18 says, "For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."

 

While we cannot always change circumstances or avoid sufferings, we can change how we respond to them. We can choose to act according to the Word of God rather than react to the challenges. The bigger the challenge, the bigger the opportunity for growth. 2020 held a plethora of opportunity for growth.

 

Recently I reflected on what 2020 taught me...

 

Challenges are funny things; they can make you or break you. We can be assured God doesn't allow them to come our way to destroy us. Quite the contrary. The truth is, challenging times can make us better or bitter – the choice is up to us.

 

Here are some ways that 2020 made me better:

 

The Importance of Staying Prepared

 

At the beginning of 2020 God began to speak one thing to me...over and over, He charged me to prepare. It seemed like every few days He was speaking to me saying, "Prepare, prepare." Of course, I could not have imagined what was coming our way. I thought He was urging me to prepare spiritually for something ahead – which I did. Little did I know, He was not only telling me to prepare my heart spiritually, but to prepare in the natural as well.

 

Had I prayed into that word and heeded it completely, I could have avoided all the chaos when grocery shelves became empty. Since that time, I have stayed prepared, spiritually and physically. I keep myself built up in faith. I do my best to not allow anything to shake me. To do this, I avoid the news media and instead keep my ear turned to God. I also keep my shelves filled with enough supplies to last a few weeks if need be. It was a hard lesson but one I am thankful for. There is a great peace in staying prepared for whatever may come our way.

 

Last month, without my foreknowledge, wintry weather came our way. I woke up to snow and ice, which prevented me from getting out of my driveway. I smiled as I realized I was already prepared. There was nothing I needed or wanted. I had learned to stay ready at all times.

 

"...Be ready in season and out of season..." (2 Timothy 4:2)

 

"Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise. Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest." (Proverbs 6:6-8)

 

The Importance of Words

 

One of the most shocking things during 2020 was hearing some of the words that came out of the mouths of people, especially Christians. I have witnessed many people speaking fearful and negative outcomes and then watched those words come to pass in their lives. Our words are vital, the Bible tells us so. It tells us to guard our words. Our words produce life and death. Words have never been more important than right now as we walk through this grueling season. We eat the fruit of our words; it is up to us to speak life or death and whatever we choose, we will eat those words – we will live those words.  

 

"Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits." (Proverbs 18:21)

 

"Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin." (Proverbs 13:3)

 

The Importance of Faith in God and His Word

 

I love trees and how the Bible talks about them in relation to our faith. When we go through challenging times, it is a time to allow our roots to grow deeper into God. One of my favorite Scriptures is found in Colossians 2:7 and says, "Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness."

 

In 2020, I learned how vital deep roots are and how important it is to truly trust God; to make sure our foundation is in Him and His Word; to determine that our roots will continue to go deeper into Him. If our faith is in anything or anyone other than God, we will not only bend, we will likely break. For this reason, our firm foundation must be established in the Word of God.

 

In the midst of this trying year, God revealed areas of my life where I was certain I was trusting God when I was not. Many areas of my faith walk had to be repented of and changed during 2020.

 

Through it all we must remember, God is faithful and has a good plan for us, we only need to believe it. God's Word is the only truth. We must remain in God and His Word, for it will not return void. His Word is a light to our path and will show us the way to go as we trust in Him. However, it is not a one-time thing. Choosing to continue in faith is cumulative, you must decide day after day that you trust in God alone.

 

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will hear you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

 

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." (Psalm 119:105)

 

The Importance of Hearing God for Ourselves

 

I love prophetic voices. I honor prophetic words. We also need to cultivate a lifestyle where we hear God clearly for ourselves too. I have learned in my life that if I, personally, have a word from God, I can stand firm without wavering. When we hear a prophetic word, it should in some way confirm what we are hearing from God; hence the importance of a firm foundation in God's Word. That alone will cause us to stand firm.

 

"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me." (John 10:27)

 

"Call to Me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known." (Jeremiah 33:3)

 

"And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, 'This is the way, walk in it,' when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left." (Isaiah 30:21)

 

A Revealing of My Heart

 

The greatest lesson I encountered through 2020 was the revealing of my heart. There are times in our lives when God allows us to go through seasons for the sole purpose of knowing what is in our hearts. He already knows what's in our hearts; we are the ones who are unaware of their true content.    

 

Jeremiah 17:9 says, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?"

 

I discovered during this season that I truly didn't know my own heart. I thought I did. I believed I knew where my faith was anchored...I was wrong.

 

Pressure and challenges reveal things in us that will come out no other way. The good news is, when those things come to the surface, we can repent and turn from them. Those whom God loves He chastens or corrects. We should be so thankful for this truth.

 

"And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not." (Deuteronomy 8:2)

 

"I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds." (Jeremiah 17:10)

 

"Prove me, O Lord, and try me; test my heart and my mind." (Psalm 26:2)

 

In John 16:33 Jesus says, "...In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."

 

Tribulation is defined as "severe affliction and distress." Tribulations will come...we were forewarned by Jesus Himself. Many came in 2020...What did they produce in you? Perseverance? Character? Hope?

 

"...But we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us." (Romans 5:3-5)

 

Challenges will push us to grow and encourage us to change; they are never for our destruction but an opportunity to grow in God.

 

Whatever season we find ourselves in, may we continue to grow, firmly established in God and His Word, allowing the seed of every adversity to create greater benefits in our lives.

"Have You Been Hit by a Wild Pitch?

It's Time to Get Back in the Batter's Box!"

By Bill Yount

 

 

Here comes the pitch! It turns wild as it comes in like a deranged missile at the batter. Unable to back away fast enough, the ball drills him in the back. All eyes in the stadium, including mine, are immediately riveted on the pitcher, questioning his intentions.

 

What He Doesn't Do Makes Him a Star

 

As the batter shakes off the pain, there's something he doesn't do that makes him a star in the game... he never once looks back at the pitcher who wounded him! Instead he proudly trots down to first base. Silently, his character speaks so loud that it fills the stadium with reverence... "Thank you, Mr. Pitcher, you did not strike me out. I still made it to first base!" In this moment, I feel the Holy Spirit come into that stadium and speak to me. He says, "Bill, how many of My people have been hit by a wild pitch and they cannot take their eyes off the pitcher who hurt them, and they never get on base because of the hurt?"

 

I sense that many in the Body of Christ – because of "hits and hurts" – cannot discern who is winning or losing, and they don't know what inning we are in.

 

There's Good News in All of This

 

I believe many have been "up to bat" spiritually and have been hit by some wild pitches. Many can't take their eyes off of the one who has hurt or wounded them. I believe so many have gotten hit by wild pitches in the Body of Christ that we have all the bases loaded. The good news is, we are still up at bat! The bad news is many are afraid of being in the batter's box because of being hit by wild pitches in the past. (Photo via Flickr)

 

Get Back in the Batter's Box

 

But God is saying, "Pick up the 'Bat of Prayer' and get back in the batter's box one more time. Pray for those who have hit you with a wild pitch. Pray for those who keep striking you out. Pray for those who throw so many 'wild pitches' at you that you have to end up taking a walk!"

 

There is more than one way to get on base. You can hit the ball. You can get a walk. Or you can get hit! Getting hit still gets you on base. I believe God is still "in" in our bat, and I feel a "Home-Run Anointing" coming over us as the Body of Christ is coming together as an unbeatable team.

 

I see us hitting the ball so hard that it will go over every wall, hitting the nations, smashing the 10-40 Window and every window to pieces! I see this ball going, going, like a ball inside a pinball machine. Anything it hits only knocks it further on, hitting strategic landmarks of the enemy across the face of the earth. Every time it hits something, something hits it again and it keeps traveling.

 

The Spiritual World Series

 

I believe what I'm seeing is the last-day "Spiritual World Series" coming upon the earth. The world is about to witness a "Grand Slam" from a team they thought would never win, and YOU are next up to bat.

 

Step inside the batter's box now!

 

I'm picking up my bat...

 

Wisdom from the Dugout:

 

• When it came to God's best for my life, I had to wait longer than I wanted to. I had to learn to out-wait the devil's best offer first. It's important for us to wait for that right pitch and then not let it pass by. The best hitters in baseball learn to "wait it out" for that right one.

 

• A prophet once spoke over me, "Son, if you keep swinging you are bound to hit something. Don't be afraid to swing!"  

 

A Grand Slam Attitude

 

A little girl on roller blades was racing down the sidewalk as she sideswiped a tree and hit the ground. She got up and kept speeding dangerously, falling again. Later on, I looked out the window and she was still at it. After falling head over heels again she slowly got up and continued wildly on.

 

I said, "Lord, what is wrong with that kid? His response surprised me. "She's doing great. She's not afraid of falling."

 

Suddenly, I was inspired by this fearless little girl and with this thought: If you do anything for the Lord, do it with all your heart and with all your might and don't be afraid to fail. Failing is forward progress in God's eyes when we don't let it stop us.

 

"We must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work." (John 9:4 ESV)

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

 

 

THE ABSOLUTENESS OF GOD

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*       A life of "perfect obedience" is the ONLY way for one to be found "abiding" in My Absoluteness.

 

"Perfect obedience" - receiving a revelation of the Father's Will, and then carrying out that Will in the timing [unction] and power of the Holy Spirit - alone [through the continual exercising of an absolute faith working through a perfect love];

 

"Absoluteness" - free from imperfection; complete; perfect; not mixed or adulterated; pure; free from restriction or limitation; not limited in any way;

 

        ...."You, therefore, must be perfect [growing into complete maturity of godliness in mind and character, having reached the proper height of virtue and integrity], as your heavenly Father is perfect".... Matthew 5:48 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."[Live] as children of obedience [to God]; do not conform yourselves to the evil desires [that governed you] in your former ignorance [when you did not know the requirements of the Gospel]. But as the One Who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living. For it is written, You shall be holy, for I am holy".... 1 Peter 1:14-16 The Amplified Translation

 

____...."Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether that be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness (right doing and right standing with God)?".... Romans 6:16 The Amplified Translation

 

____ ...."But I say, walk by the spirit [from the position of the spirit being in a position of predominance {ascendency} over the soul and body - thus, influenced directly by the Holy Spirit], and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh [senses, self-desire]. For the flesh [self-desire] sets its desire against the spirit [inner man], and the spirit [inner man] against the flesh [senses]; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please".... Galatians 5:16-17 NASB

 

        If it is not the Holy Spirit that is instructing [guiding] one to speak or act in any given situation THEN it is certain that it is an "unholy spirit" that is influencing them.

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You are an absolute God and we thank you and praise You that we are gaining a deeper revelation of Your true Nature and Character [Your Absoluteness] with each passing day. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
