A Prophetic Poem of Preparation for My Beloved

By Sherry Edwards Mackey

 

 

To my surprise along my way, it not being a typical day,

He met me and took me aside in His beloved Presence I abide.

 

His overwhelming Love, Peace, Serenity and Delight too

What more could his maiden want for in life is His life too

 

What a picnic of His delights, making me want for nothing

In this life only more and more of His Gracious care and light

 

Dearly beloved you may think that I do things on a whim

When I plan things ahead unknown I delight to see that your

Face shone

 

I draw you My beloved; I watch in my garden, My Love never

Ceases My Abiding Darling, such treasures untold that will out

Shine precious stones

 

When I bless My betrothed all for the delight of our

Union abode.  I AM very apt in knowing what you need when

To make you lay down by the gentle stream; Finding peace within

 

You feel guilty when you aren’t “doing” something with your day.

When I plan a day of such peace and comfort, who can deny such

Love and romance with MY beloved.

 

You cannot be whole, rested, mended and stable for our next

Round of assignments that come if you cannot learn to trust

That I Am He that prepares you thoroughly even through rest

And relaxation with peace

 

For I know the time for war and the time of rest is just as

Important as all the rest.  I know what your life needs and

Entails and understands all of your tests and trials.

 

Faithful I AM and faithful I be in preparing My beloved with

All of these.  As you learn to trust I will prepare you in advance

For all those trial and test you take.

 

Beloved I AM here and will be always be there, for I always

Provide My constant loving care.

 

 

 

In HIS Grace and Mercy,

Dream: The Bridal Contract

By Beverly Juelsgaard-Fischer

 

 

 

I’d had this dream two nights before, but didn’t get up to write it down right away.  So, by the time I got up, I couldn’t remember all of it.

 

I repented, for not getting up to write it down immediately, because all that the LORD shows and speaks to us is valuable and needed information for us, as the Body of Christ.

 

It all needs to be written as a record, and so that we can pray over it or pray it through to completion.

 

I then asked the LORD to bring it back or to restore the dream, in His timing.

 

DREAM:

 

Scene 1:  I’m in a room waiting to see what it is the LORD wants me to see.  There are two men who appear to be a father and his son.  They are more prominent, and more elaborately dressed than the seven others.

 

All of them are sitting at a large round table.  The men are discussing a piece of paper in front of the father.  The topic seems to be timing, if it is time for this paper to be signed by the father, his son, and the others in the room.

 

I felt like this was a very official type of signing.  The atmosphere seemed to be charged with power and authority, but also like it was a very serious or solemn occasion.

 

This seemed to be an end to one thing and a new beginning to another.  When the discussion was over, everyone in the room signed the document. The father rolled up the paper, like a scroll and sealed it with wax and his signet ring.  It was then an official document of the court.

 

The tension broke in the room and there was a joyfulness that filled the room and an urgency that I could feel in the air.  They were clapping each other on the back, as all seemed to be happy about the choices that had been made.

 

The father then gave the document to his son, who then left the room with the paper rolled up in his hand.  He put the document in a saddlebag and jumped on a beautiful white horse.  He took off out of the courtyard gates with great speed and others following closely behind.

 

Scene 2:  There is a woman standing on a portico or porch that overlooks a courtyard.   She is looking for someone or something, as she seems to be looking in the distance.

 

There is someone there with her, who gives her a spyglass to look through to improve her vision for seeing in the distance.  Then someone below runs towards her from outside the courtyard, yelling, “I can see a cloud of dust coming our way in the distance.”  He points in the distance.

 

The woman puts down the spyglass and shivers with anticipation and excitement.  She picks it back up again, and looks once more, but still can see nothing.  She puts down the spyglass and turns around sighing, with her back to the courtyard gate.

 

Then someone below shouts out, “There is a rider coming!  Look now at the huge cloud of dust!  I can see him!  Oh and there are many others riding with him!”

 

She picked up the spyglass and looked. This time she could see a rider coming towards her at full speed on a white horse.  She could also see a large group of riders and horses with him.

 

She waits for the riders and their horses to come into full view.  About 100 yards out, the group stopped.  They seemed to be discussing something.

 

They settled themselves, and then they got into formation in 5×5 groups, or 25 per group.  There would be a space and then another 5×5 group.  All together there were 5 groups of 25 or 125 horses and riders’ total, plus the leader, who was the son on the white horse.

 

I can hear music playing as the group on horseback approaches.  At a hand signal from the son they all stop in formation in front of the portico that the woman is standing on above them. The music stops and it is very quiet.

 

The son looks up to the woman, and I can see tears of happiness in their eyes.  He dismounts and hands his horse’s reins to someone.  He then walks towards the steps that are on the left side on the portico, curving around and down to the ground.

 

The woman starts down the steps, with excitement and a smile that can’t be contained.  The two meet at the bottom of the steps and embrace.  The son hands the woman the sealed scroll.  She squeals in delight and her smile broadens even more.  They hold hands and walk into the castle.

 

The group of riders that came with the son, shouted, “Hurrah! Hurrah!  Hurrah!”

 

Trumpets were blasting and people seemed to come out of nowhere, cheering in excitement, for what they’d just seen.

 

End.

 

INTERPRETATION:

 

 The father and son sitting at the table are God, the Father, and Jesus, the Son.

 

The seven others with them represent the Holy Watcher Angels of Heaven:  Michael, Gabriel, Uriel, Raphael, Saraqael, Remiel, and Raguel.

 

The contract that was signed fully depended on the timing of the LORD.  It was official because it was sealed by the Father’s / King’s Signet Ring.  Only official documents from the King were sealed by His signet ring.

 

To have the King’s Signet Ring was an honor, and only given to someone He deeply trusted.  Having it said that you carried His power and authority to use it wisely.

 

The Son, has brought the Bridal Contract to His Bride.

 

There are 5 rows of 5 soldiers in each group. 5 is the number for GRACE.  

 

Abundant grace is going with The Son to get His Bride   ~   5 rows x 5 in each row = 25 soldiers / group x 5 groups = GRACE x 125!!!!

 

 

 

God Bless You!

Yes LORD, Thy Will Be Done!

By Syreeta Thomas

 

 

Sometimes God will remove some things and people from your life because you depended on them more than you depended on Him.

 

But take heart and be encouraged.  God’s glory is about to shine in your life and He is going to restore everything that you lost and then give you more…

 

But you have to be obedient and LET THEM GO!!!

 

You will be able to look back and say, “It was no one but the LORD who has brought me this far.”

 

The blessings which God is bringing into your life now, are far greater than you can imagine.  You will look at the things of the past and there will be no comparison to what He is preparing you for!

 

Amen!

 

 

I’ve learned that many times God sends us gifts, even helpers, and partners and we reject what is God sent, because the people aren’t packaged to our fleshy liking.

 

Deceived by outward appearances by those who weren’t sent and as someone said, “We end up missing God.”

 

We ought to be careful to discern by the Spirit of God, what and who is heavenly purposed for our lives, and stop judging by the seeing of our natural eyes.

 

May God help us.

 

 

If at any time things don’t go as planned, it doesn’t mean things aren’t working according to HIS divine will.

 

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not to think own understanding.  But in all thy ways acknowledge HIM and he shall direct thy path,”   Proverbs 3:5.

 

Yes LORD, thy will be done!

 

 

 

Shalom

Now Is the Time to Get Your Message out to the World

By Doug Addison

 

 

Have you ever felt like you were made for something more in life?

 

Maybe you have experienced a great deal of pain and disappointment and wonder if God can still use you.

 

This was me for many years.  But then I discovered my life message and I am now using my past experiences, both painful and good, to help millions of people.

 

We are sitting on a divine opportunity to reach out to people all over the world using the Internet.

 

God was behind the creation of the Internet for the purposes of the revival that is coming.  While in many ways the Internet is being used for the wrong reasons, we can redeem what is intended for evil and bring about good.

 

Power in your story

 

“They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony,”   Revelation 12:11 NIV.

 

Whether you realize it or not, God has given you the gift of your life experiences. Who you are and what you’ve gone through is important and there is power in your testimony!

 

Your testimony does not have to be religious; it can also be practical things to help others. It is so important to discover your life message, as it is the fabric of discovering your destiny.

 

Finding our Message and Style

 

In 9th grade speech class, I had nearly failed every speech.  Then, we had to do a demonstration speech.  Since I worked at Burger King at the time, I brought in all the fixings to make a Whopper.

 

Standing there feeling stupid in front of the class, wearing my red paper hat, I got them all laughing and showed them how to make a Whopper.

 

I got an A on that speech!

 

Other times, when I would try to do a speech or formal presentation, I would fumble all over myself. But if I did any sort of practical training, showing people how to do something, talking about my own experiences and getting them to laugh, things would flow for me.

 

This was a clue that helped me find my style and message, which I still use to this day.

 

How to find Yours

 

What are the things God has been speaking to you in your life?

 

Maybe you have a passion or dissatisfaction.  Some people are driven by a passion for something and others are motivated by dissatisfaction about something.

 

Either way, you can use this to discover your message and communication style.

 

Begin to notice what themes or topics you are drawn to most.  As you take notice of these and study them further, you will begin to see your life message emerge.

 

Here are 5 questions you can ask yourself:

 

What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail?

What did you pretend when you were a kid?

If you won the lottery, how would you spend your money?

What have you overcome in your life or are in the process of overcoming?

If you had the freedom, how would you like to help people?

For me, I had many passions and dissatisfactions.  I love music, praying, reading the Bible and watching football.

 

Then one day, while listening to music, praying, reading the Bible and watching football, the Holy Spirit spoke to me.  “I have placed a message in you to help other people with the very things that you have struggled with all your life.”

 

Thirty years ago, God gave me a strategy for sharing His love that is still a life message of mine today.

 

I invite you to take the next step and join me on a journey of discovering your message and some of the best ways to get your story and ideas out to the world.

 

Check out this online workshop, where I’m releasing — for the first time — many of the strategies and tools that God has given me so you can use them to release YOUR life message!

 

 

 

Blessings,

You Might Be Riding High Today…

by Geraldine Fisher

 

 

You might be riding high today, but your tomorrow is coming and God has a lightning bolt ready to set you a blazing fire!

 

God hates pride; however not all pride is bad.

 

Pride that you care about, how you represent God, or that you have done a job well done, is not bad.

 

But the obsession of the things we do, and when we become so preoccupied with ourselves, that we offend and hurt others, can become a sin!

 

One of the reasons God hates pride is because it makes us think that we are better than everyone else.  No one can do it better than we can!  If it was us doing it, it would have turned out better, because we are more special than others, instead of being thankful that the person even put forth the effort to try!

 

Remember, satan, who took one look at himself in the mirror and felt that God was not doing His job right and then tried to remove Him from His own Throne!

 

Satan was cast out of heaven because of pride (Isaiah 14:12-15).

 

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before stumbling.  It is better to be humble in spirit with the lowly than to divide the spoil with the proud, (Proverbs 16:18-19).

 

This type of pride is both chaotic and dangerous, because it seeks to do harm to others, going so far as to take over what belongs to another!

 

The Bible says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3).”  The “poor in spirit” are those who recognize their utter spiritual bankruptcy and their inability to come to God aside from His divine grace.

 

The proud, on the other hand, are so blinded by their pride that they think they have no need of God or, worse, that God should accept them as they are and it is he that should be bowing to them!

 

For, I hear God saying,

 

“Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?  Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?

 

Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?  Will he make a covenant with thee?  wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?  Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?

 

Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?  Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons?  or his head with fish spears?

 

Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.  Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?  None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?

 

Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.  I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.

 

Who can discover the face of his garment?  or who can come to him with his double bridle?  Who can open the doors of his face?  his teeth are terrible round about.

 

His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.  One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.  They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.

 

By his sneesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.”   (Job 41:1-22 KJV).

 

This spirit is a tenacious spirit, but no worries, because God can put a hook in the mouth of every Leviathan Spirit those that are coming to rip the flesh of his people in this season!

 

No king snake or crocodile is too tough for God to deal with I don’t care how tight your scales maybe in this season God made creation and he has a cage and a trap for every demonic spirit in this season and for all that has made a covenant with Leviathan in this season!

 

I decree and declare you are going to be identified, uncovered and exposed in this season – and God is going to humble you and all those connected to you will fall (like a bowl of lightning) and come to naught in this season unless you repent and do a complete U-turn!

I AM Coming Soon! Are You Ready?

By Beverly Juelsgaard-Fischer

 

 

ARE YOU READY?

 

For I AM coming soon.  No one knows the day or time.  But all will see Me come!

 

“Heaven and earth will perish and pass away, but My Words will not perish or pass away.   32 But of that day or that hour not a (single) person knows, not even the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.  33 Be on your guard (constantly alert), and watch and pray; for you do not know when the time will come,”   Mark 13: 31-33 (AMPC).

 

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shed its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.  30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn and beat their breasts and lament in anguish, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory [in brilliancy and splendor].  31 And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect (His chosen ones) from the four winds, [even] from one end of the universe to the other,”   Matthew 24:29-31 (AMPC).

 

“After that I saw Heaven opened, and behold, a white horse [appeared]!  The One Who was riding it is called Faithful (trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness).  12 His eyes blaze [blaze] like a flame of fire, and on His head are many kingly crowns (diadems); and He has a title (name) inscribed which He alone knows or can understand.  13 He is dressed in a robe dyed by dipping in blood, and the title by which He is called is the Word of God.

 

14 And the troops of Heaven , clothed in fine linen, dazzling and clean, followed Him on white horses.  15 From His mouth goes forth a sharp sword with which He can smite (afflict, strike) the nations;  and He will shepherd and control them with a staff ( scepter, rod) of iron.  He will tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath and indignation of God the All-Ruler (the Almighty, the Omnipotent),”   Revelation 19: 11-15 (AMPC).

 

Even as I ready Myself there will be many who will say, “Why not me, Lord?  Why not me?”

 

You thought all was fine, so you ignored Me and set our relationship aside.  You had other things to do at the time, than spend time with Me.  You thought you’d spent enough time with Me that day.

 

Only it became the next day, and the next, and the day after that, and it continued, until I was no longer on the back burner or even on the counter near the stove.  I had been set aside, ignored, and put away.

 

But I’m not an inanimate object you can just set aside, nor a pet you ignore when you get tired of it.

 

I AM your LORD and MASTER.  I AM your CREATOR, the One who LOVES YOU MOST!  I AM your BELOVED.  I AM the One you will soon marry, in the GREATEST WEDDING OF ALL!!!

 

So I’M NOT One to set aside.  I need you to interact with ME, on a daily basis.  I need you to communicate directly with ME.  Not through others, WITH ME, ONE TO ONE.

 

If you don’t think you can do this, then try Me.  I long to communicate with you, more and more.

 

Remember, there were times when your life has been turned upside down and inside out and you asked me, “Why?”

 

Sometimes that is what it takes before you notice Me again.  Or there have been those times when you think you can do everything “all by yourself” that you don’t need Me anymore.

 

Sometimes there are events that happen, that are needed and I allow to wake you up and bring you back to Me.  I have been with you each of those times.

 

Many of those times many of you thought I had abandoned you, when you just didn’t see or recognize Me, because it had been so long since you had communicated with Me, or you didn’t have a true relationship with Me in the first place.

 

NOW is the time to get it right.  DO NOT WAIT UNTIL IT GETS WORSE.   For I promise you much around and/or in you will get worse in the days ahead, if you do not know Me in a true relationship soon.  You need to know how to seek Me, and be battle ready for the days ahead.

 

“Similarly, the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we don’t know how to pray the way we should.  But the Spirit Himself pleads on our behalf with groaning too deep for words;  27 and the one who searches hearts knows exactly what the Spirit is thinking, because his pleadings for God’s people accord with God’s will.  28 Furthermore, we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called in accordance with His purpose;  29 because those whom he knew in advance, he also determined in advance would be conformed to the pattern of His Son, so that he might be the firstborn among many brothers;  30 and those whom He thus determined in advance, He also called; and those whom He called, He also caused to be considered righteous; and those whom he caused to be considered righteous He also glorified!”   Romans 8:26-30 (CJB).

 

The enemy isn’t giving up easily and you must be prepared at all times, so that he doesn’t use what he knows about your weaknesses as an entryway into your spirit, the life you lead and how it affects you and all those you love, as well as the calling I have placed on your life.

 

Repent now for your sins and seek Me for a true relationship with Me, as your Lord and Savior.  Read My Word, so you will know or know more of My character.

 

Ask Me for deliverance and inner healing from the trauma, and hurt you have experienced in your life.

 

Ask Me too, to fill you with the good and opposite things of those things taken from you that were meant to harm or cause harm to you or to destroy you.  Remember the enemy doesn’t play fair.

 

“11 Turn away your face from my sins, and blot out all my crimes.  12 Create in me a clean heart, God; renew in me a resolute spirit.  13 Don’t thrust me away from your presence, don’t take your Ruach Kodesh (Holy Spirit) away from me,”   Psalm 51: 11-13  (CJB).

 

I promise you that if the enemy, a spirit, or one who the enemy works through says they will help you, it is not unconditional love, but because they want something from you that is precious to you.

 

You may not realize it in the beginning, for the enemy has many ways to deceive, hide, or trick you to keep you from seeing what he’s up to.  Do not fall into his traps blindly.

 

The more you know My character, the more you will be able to recognize and discern the evil ways of the enemy and not stumble or fall into his plans for you.

 

YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO CHOOSE WISELY.  THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES OR REWARDS FOR WHAT YOU DO OR SAY.

 

“Your cedar may be excellent, but that doesn’t make you a better king.  True, your father ate and drank, but he also did what was right and just, so things went well with him.  

 

16  He upheld the cause of the poor and the weak, so everything went well.  Isn’t that what knowing Me is all about?” says ADONAI.  17 In contrast, your eyes and heart are controlled entirely by your greed, you desire for shedding innocent blood, oppressing and extorting.  18  Therefore here is what ADONAI says concerning Y’hoyakim (Jehoiakim) the son of Yoshiyahu (Josiah), King of Y’hudah (Judah :  “There will be no one to mourn for him, ‘Oh! My brother!’ or “Oh! His glory!”  19 He will be given a donkey’s ‘burial’ – dragged out the gates of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) and thrown away [to rot],”    Jeremiah 22:15-19 (CBJ).

 

As you continue to seek Me consistently, you will move forward into My plans and purposes for you.  You will not grow stagnant or become stuck in a “rut or parked” unable to move forward, which is one of the places the enemy wants you to be, another is to be moving backwards closer to him.

 

Worshiping Me, reading My Word, and spending time with Me will go a long ways in fortifying you and your spirit for the days ahead.  These will allow Me to change you mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially, as you begin to learn, practice, and apply My Way of doing and saying things.

 

You will then begin giving more of yourself to me, which will then radically change your life.  If you allow Me in to do it.  But you must decide if you will serve Me or man.

 

May you choose wisely and follow My choice for you, with Godly actions and words.  BE READY.

 

“The Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of ten bridesmaids who took up their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.  2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise.   3 The five who were foolish took no oil for their lamps, 4  but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil.  5 When the bridegroom was delayed, they all lay down and slept.  6 At midnight they were roused by the shout, “Look, the bridegroom is coming!  Come out and welcome him!”

 

7 All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps.  8 Then the five foolish ones asked the others, “Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.”  9 But the others replied, “We don’t have enough for all of us.  Go to a shop and buy some for yourselves.”

 

10 But while they were gone to buy oil, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked.  11 Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, “Sir, open the door for us!  12 But he called back, “I don’t know you.” 

 

13 So stay awake and be prepared, because you do not know the day or hour of My return,”   Matthew 25:1–13 (NLT) .

 

 

 

God Bless You!

The “Kingdom” Spin Masters

By Ron McGatlin

 

 

 

The most critical issue in the entire world among all the people of the world is the coming forth of the kingdom of God. The first priority of all life according to Jesus is seeking the kingdom and His righteousness.

 

Fresh pure kingdom truth from heaven is flowing by the Spirit into the hearts of true apostolic servants/sons of God to transform God’s people and eventually the world to the kingdom of God.

 

No sooner is the fresh word of the kingdom spoken or written than the merchandising spin masters begin to tweak it and twist it to fit their programs and further their causes.

 

This is not referring to saying the same things in a different way or making application to the same principles in different ways to communicate kingdom truth in unique cultures and circumstances. This is speaking about mixing in other fallacious teachings coming from the religious past and twisting the kingdom word to make it fit another agenda. It is also noted that people are in different stages of seeking transition, and some are battling with releasing previous beliefs attained prior to hearing the word of the kingdom.

 

We are all at different places in our transformation and transition into the fresh restoration of kingdom. Obviously, while in transition the old religious things may for a season and to a degree coexist with the new kingdom reality. It is our intention to encourage and not to accuse the brethren who are still in early process of transformation from past teachings which, are being washed away by the Spirit and replaced with the true gospel of the kingdom as Jesus first proclaimed and demonstrated it. However, it is important to know the difference between the kingdom of God reality and where we have been.

 

Beware of the spin masters. Not everything that says “kingdom of God” on it or in it is the pure word of the kingdom. Some of what is being proffered today has been spun off into a good sounding perversion to manipulate people.

 

Personally, I believe that God is not pleased with the contamination of the pure gospel of the kingdom. I am sincerely concerned for the continued well-being of some who are mixing the kingdom word with fallacious teachings from the old church systems to keep their thing going. This seems to me to be ultimate merchandising and is not going unnoticed in heaven.

 

There is a deadly drug the enemy uses as a tool. This drug causes people to get hooked on using good things of God to feed their own needs or desires. This drug is like a poison that tastes good. When one begins to use it, more and more is required until there seems no way out of the addiction. This drug might be called “ministry mammon.”

 

This is not at all a new problem; it has been around for millennia. What is new to the situation is that in this season, the real gospel of the kingdom is now being proclaimed on a broad scale.

 

To whom much is given much is required.

 

The restoration of the preaching of the gospel of the kingdom is a vital step in the history of mankind and the world. It is very important and is where we have been heading since Christ Jesus proclaimed and demonstrated it two millennia ago. It is not good that some are treating the precious word of the kingdom with the same devices that have been applied to teaching and preaching in the past church and ministry systems of mixture.

 

Simply stated spinning off the gospel of the kingdom for ministry mammon or any other purpose will be met with much more immediate and intense corrective response from God than similar offenses in the previous religious season. There is more accountability since the return of the “Christ in His Body (temple) understanding and reality” that brought the return of the proclamation of Christ’s gospel of the kingdom again on earth.

 

To pretend obedience to the gospel of the kingdom while seeking to provide for one’s personal gain or building one’s own kingdom will not be long tolerated in this developing apostolic age in which the risen Christ has returned as a life-giving Spirit to cleanse the temple (His Body) and build His glorious church (ekklesia) to establish the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. Heaven’s New Jerusalem model is coming down and being formed on earth, and there shall nothing enter it that defiles.

 

Christ Jesus as a man in His natural body proclaimed the gospel of the kingdom and after Pentecost proclaimed it through His apostles as a life-giving Spirit. At that time there was immediate strong response to anyone who joined themselves to the kingdom movement and then subversively sought personal gain (ministry mammon).

 

Ananias and Sapphira became a recorded biblical example of the serious repercussions of this kind of offense while connected into the holy environment of the manifesting kingdom of heaven on earth (Acts 5:1-12).

 

A Warning from God

 

A warning from God today is not a threat; it is a loving plea to consider and change and to beware of a potential significant loss. Ananias and Sapphira were strong, capable people who had obviously been blessed of God to have things of substantial value. Yet in an instant of time, all their strength left them, and they could do nothing. They could not reply or get up or even move a muscle. They had nothing. Their life’s work, their goals, and ambitions for ministry and doing good things for others ended in a heap of dead flesh and bones. All of their dreams were gone, and their possessions were dispersed to others.

 

Think about this. The things they did were natural for the culture they had lived in. For them, a very short time ago before the coming of the Holy Spirit ushered in the apostolic season of the proclamation of the kingdom, their behavior would have been normal and even considered noble. They were doing a good thing and giving a lot of money to the cause at hand for meeting the needs of all the people in the community of believers.

 

Possibly, their reasoning for what they did was that they had seen others give much smaller amounts into the community treasury, and some of those giving may have had a number of dependent children who needed to be fed from the community coffer. It would make sense for them to put in a proportionate amount, plus possibly some more out of generosity, and at the same time hold back some for themselves. They could have even thought to give what they had held back, if it were ever badly needed to provide for the community later.

 

What was so wrong about what they did that is cost them everything?

 

One way to look at this is that their fatal mistake was connecting into the kingdom of God community. There were surely lots of people in the nation who had nothing to do with the kingdom movement who did much worse things. Yet, they did not suddenly lose all and drop to the floor dead.

 

If you are set and determined to be a merchandising minister, you will do well to stay far away from the pure gospel of the kingdom. You will last much longer in the old systems with the old ways. Do not connect with the apostolic kingdom of God reality unless you are willing to leave all ministry mammon desires behind.

 

A deeper look

 

However, if you are set and determined to move on with the pure, holy gospel of the kingdom, then let us take a deeper look for understanding into the picture painted for us in the case of Ananias and Sapphira.

 

First and foremost, they were not walking in the Spirit. They were walking in their natural minds trained in the synagogue with the ways of the past religious system that was only types and shadows of the coming kingdom. It is absolutely necessary to lose the old ways of past religious church systems. To mix them with the gospel of the kingdom will not turn out well.

 

God is doing a new thing. In recent years, we have seen many notable leaders involved in powerful moves of God that have suddenly lost all their strength, in some their entire ministry, and in some cases their lives. Like Ananias and Sapphira, the protection of God pulled back and Satan entered into the hearts of these once-powerful ministers because they were not fully walking in the Spirit and therefore became involved in ministry mammon. And these happenings were in the early expression of the fresh kingdom reality which is now becoming much more intense.

 

We cannot look to our natural minds for guidance and deny the leadership of the Spirit and still safely connect into the real kingdom of God. If we are not walking in the Spirit and thereby living a life that proclaims the reality of the fullness of the Holy Spirit, then we are not proclaiming the pure gospel of the kingdom. We must not try to add a portion of the kingdom word into our religion in order to maintain or increase our ministry’s share of the market and fund our operation.

 

Again, the word and ways of the kingdom will not mix with ministry mammon. Many things we have been taught and that worked to some degree in the past are not the gospel of the kingdom. Our past belief structure from previous religious teaching are often not kingdom and are subject to being changed by God in this kingdom transformation season to more perfectly align with His word.

 

Are we proclaiming the pure word of the kingdom?

 

We may not be IF:

 

We modify the pure word of the kingdom to keep religious people from being offended.

 

We speak of Jesus and not His kingdom to gather people and sell our books.

 

We make room for the rapture theory because so many still believe it.

 

We make room for the pastor/priest/bishop rule as clergy over a congregation of laity.

 

We proclaim the Melchizedek priesthood to re-establish an order of priestly hierarchal rule over the priesthood of the believer.

 

We teach the principle or law of the mandatory tithe is valid in the kingdom.

We avoid the apostolic ministry to preserve our present structure of church rule.

We see ourselves or anyone other than Christ as head of a church group. There is a distinction between Headship and leadership.

 

We avoid clear teaching on the ministry and gifts of the Holy Spirit and the need to be fully saturated (baptized) in the Spirit, because it offends many who have been falsely taught in the past church systems.

 

We are trapped in ministry mammon and refuse to obey the Lord in addressing open sin and spiritual lack among those we minister to because we may lose favor and reward from them.

 

We feel that we want to really preach and demonstrate the kingdom, but it would cost us too much.

 

We believe the kingdom should remain confined in the church and not also affect the culture areas such as government, education, business, media, and all facets of life.

 

We are not willing to become living sacrifices for the furtherance of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

 

Many reading this may be offended by at least some of these. It is our religious beliefs that are assaulted by the kingdom reality. Let these not become areas for you to defend and debate but rather points to really consider and seek the guidance of Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit to bring clarity of understanding and fresh wisdom and direction in moving ahead in the journey of kingdom transformation.

 

Obviously this is an incomplete list and a book or at least a chapter could be written on each of these things. These are not meant to be a teaching here but a check list to point up transformation needs. Therefore, scriptures are not included with each.

 

For kingdom teaching dealing with these things and more I heartily recommend the “Kingdom Growth Guides” and other books and resources available for Free Download on the archive.openheaven.com website.

 

Keep on pursuing love. It never fails and His kingdom never ends.

His Protecting Presence

By Greg Laurie

 

 

Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.

 

—Psalm 91:7

 

There are so many things we can be afraid of in life. We can be afraid to get on a plane. We can be afraid to drive a car. We can be afraid to do this or that. We can be filled with fear over just about everything.

 

But in Psalm 91, we find this promise for believers: “Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you: (Psalm 91:7).

 

Isn’t that great to know? It isn’t over until it’s over. Until that time, we can go out with boldness, knowing that God is in control of our lives.

 

I read the story of a courageous Christian who was standing before a king who wanted him to deny Christ. The king threatened, “If you don’t do it, I will banish you.”

 

The Christian replied, “You can’t banish me from Christ. He says He will never leave me nor forsake me.”

 

The king said, “I will confiscate your property and take it all from you.”

 

The Christian said, “My treasures are laid up on high; you cannot get them.”

 

“I will kill you,” the king told him.

 

“I have been dead forty years,” the Christian answered. “I have been dead with Christ; dead to the world. My life is hid with Christ in God, and you cannot touch it.”

 

The king said, “What can you do with such a fanatic?”

 

May God give us more Christians who know something of God’s protection like this believer did. However, there is a difference between trusting the Lord and testing the Lord. Don’t take unnecessary chances with your life and expect Him to bail you out. Yes, He will keep us in all of our ways—but our ways should be His ways.

This Is A Freeing Time For You

By Russ Walden

 

 

The Father says today, this is a freeing time for you. There are things that have held you back and held you in intimidation that are being eliminated in this time. I am coming in and I am doing the work inside of you that is going to cause great freedom and great boldness to arise up in you. You have connected with My wisdom when you needed it and you know you heard from Me - oftentimes people have tried to stomp on that and tried to override you with unfairness and scorn.

 

 

They said they knew better and they said they knew what was best, but I say unto you truly, I am on your team and I know what is best even when My revealed will contradicts the opinions of men. You have heard My voice beloved. Know this - that the wisdom that you carry inside of you originates in Me, so refuse to doubt yourself any more.

 

 

I say refuse to doubt and refuse to question yourself in regard to hearing Me. Do not doubt the wisdom I have given you. I want you to go the way that I tell you to go. When others around you are going to say go one way, go this way and cause confusion - I say to you keep living out of your sheep nature, for My sheep DO hear My voice and another they will not follow. Receive My voice and receive the gift of understanding I have placed inside of you to receive my greatness and receive even the ministry calling that I have for you.

 

 

It is not a small thing that I am doing. The greater works are at hand. The deeper wisdom of My Spirit is flowing and My wisdom will arm you and instruct you and cause you to know all you need to know as you discard your own opinion and the opinions of others and trust wholly in Me.

FIRE BY NIGHT           

 

             "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, nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB

AUTHORITATIVE PRAYER IS SIMPLY AN EXPRESSION OF ABSOLUTE FAITH AND TRUST IN THE FATHER AND HIS WORD

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*       I have called My holy apostles and prophets to take the revelation of "authoritative prayer" [prayers of proclamation] to My people.

 

*       An "authoritative word" [prayer] is the direct result of revealed knowledge and the unction of the Holy Spirit.

 

        ...."Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with thanksgiving".... Colossians 4:2 The Amplified Translation

 

        Authoritative prayer [proclamation] is the way of the Kingdom. It is simply an expression of absolute faith and trust in the Father and His Word [the "finished work" of Jesus]. Gaining a revelation of "the place called Done" is extremely important for every true believer. It [seeing through the "eyes of faith"] truly puts a different light on things - especially in the areas where we have had trouble reconciling certain portions of Scripture with others. It all comes down to an absolute faith and trust in our loving Father - Who is Perfection, Personified. As you continue your study of these things you will see clearly exactly what you need to see in this most critical and glorious hour.

 

"the place called Done"- is the place wherein one rests in the "finished" work of the Lord Jesus Christ [and the entire scope of the Father's Will - past, present and future] through the continual exercising of an absolute faith love, and obedience. It is the place wherein the Grace of God abounds towards one - empowering them perfectly in ALL things.

 

        ...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB

 

        ...."But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE," we also believe, therefore we also speak [proclaim]".... 2 Corinthians 4:13 NASB

 

        ...."And Jesus answered saying to them, "Have faith in God". [lit. have the faith of God] "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be [granted] him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe [based on the finished work of the Cross, the Word of God and the Blood Covenant] that you have [already] received them, and they will be [granted] you".... Mark 11:23-24 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that IN Christ we have been given the authority to crush the Enemy and his schemes at every turn. Therefore, we boldly proclaim in every word and through every deed that we are Your true [faithful] sons and daughters and, that in the way of righteousness is life and that NO death [fear, darkness rebellion etc.] can remain standing [be sustained] in our presence. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

 

        ...."In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death [no death can remain standing]".... Proverbs 12:28 NASB

 

        ...."Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you".... Joshua 1:3 NASB

 

        ...."No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it [the Word of God] to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go. This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go".... Joshua 1:5-9 NASB

Do Your Vessels Need Unclogging?

By Geraldine Fisher

 

 drano

 

As I slept last night, I awoke up to a sign that read: “Drāno!”

 

I begin to ponder on what the LORD was saying to me and as I did, I realized that this was a cleanser used to unclog a flow that is stopping the water from freely flowing!

 

Then as I thought on this, I realized that it is the flow of the prophetic anointing, that is linked to our anointing, of which the Holy Ghost causes the flames to be fanned, as the fire in our own lives, begins to burn!

 

I thought about how that, whenever these flames begin to be smothered by sin and other decay, we block the flow of God in our lives, causing the drain to become stopped up!

 

But in this season, I believe that the Holy Ghost is causing many to evaluate what it is that is causing the water to become clogged in the drain!

 

For this drain is an outlet that is used as a place to detox the things in your lives that needs detoxing!

 

It is similar to the dung gate that Nehemiah was rebuilding at the time the gates had been torn down and they needed rebuilding!

 

Come on somebody, the dung gate was a place where things that where worthless and of no good use, were discarded and thrown away out of the city!

 

In this season, I believe that the LORD is saying that this drain is an opportunity for the people of God to symbolically to look at Drāno Cleaner as a way to see and to evaluate the things that are stuck in the drains, that are stopping the water from properly flowing out of their own lives; the dirty water and other particles that are considered worthless!

 

For by the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.  We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.  For there they who carried us away captive required of us a song; and they who wasted us required of us mirth, saying , Sing us one of the songs of Zion.  How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a strange land?  (Psalm 137:1-4 KJV)

 

Saying, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting,”  (Psalm 139:23-24 KJV)

 

You see, the prophetic anointing is like a well spring of life and it should be flowing freely from the vessels of those who are anointed by God for all that come into contact with her may drink and to experience a life changing transformation!

 

For, I heard the LORD say, “Shake thyself from the dust; arise, [and] sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion,” (Isaiah 52:2).

 

For these are NOT drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.  But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; and it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon ALL flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: and on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy,  (Acts 2:15-18 KJV).

Be at Ease My Child!

By Robin Kirby Gatto

 

 

I hear the Father saying:

 

“Be at ease My child, knowing that My peace rules your heart and surpasses your understanding.

 

Do not be given over to the cares that would try and ensnare your heart and mind, but rather be given over to knowing My Love and being a student of My truth, knowing that the nature of My Love will be revealed in you.

 

Do not look at the faces of man, nor try and seek to understand or change the opinions of others, for their hearts are in my keeping, as I deal justly and righteously, causing them to see the things which they do not know, as I have with you.

 

Give yourself fully to Me, seeking Me in great diligence, as I cover your heart and mind in such salvation of truth, causing you to be filled with abundant joy, and abide in My perfect peace, as I My voice resonates in your soul, causing the standing grain harvest of My Kingdom to be made known to you.

 

Know that I AM moving quickly on your behalf, although you might not recognize my plans, understand that My ways are higher than your ways, and I will do exceedingly, abundantly, above what you can think or imagine, causing you to walk in the victory of My promises for you, which are yes and Amen!

 

I will fill your heart with laughter and the sweetness of My delight, as I cause you to delight all the more in My desires for your life, seeing those around you come unto My marvelous light, as I bring many out of darkness, revealing the nature of My Son, Jesus Christ.

 

Hang onto the Words, which I have spoken in the night season, giving you dreams and knowledge to the purposes I have for you, bringing them forth as I deliver and heal you, filling you with an overflow of My Love.”

 

God bless!

 

Amen and Amen!

 

 

 

A saint crying out to God for fullness of deliverance and the manifestation of salvation.

Never Give Up & Never Quit

By Elaine Tavolacci

 

 

 

Many of you have been experiencing intense spiritual warfare the past few weeks and some have even said, “It is like an ambush against me.”

 

There has been an assignment from the kingdom of darkness to steal, kill and destroy your destiny, but the LORD says: “Never give up and never quit”.

 

You have been created in His image and He has given you His authority.  The things that you are battling now will soon become your history and you will bring forth a mighty testimony.

 

Jesus has given you all things that pertain to life and godliness and the plans and purposes that He has for you will soon come into alignment.

 

The LORD understands your distress but do not fall prey to the deception of the enemy.  Resist discouragement and keep your eyes focused on things above even though situations may seem overwhelming.

 

The weapons that He has given you are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.  Just as the LORD was with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in the fiery furnace, He is also with you.

 

Do not bow to the opposition, and do not break or bend under the pressure.  The Holy Spirit will show you how to adjust in these times because He has created you to be more than a conqueror and to rise above difficult situations.

 

You will overcome as your refuse to succumb to the lies of the enemy.  Don’t allow oppression to overwhelm you, but put on a garment of praise when a spirit of heaviness tries to overshadow you.

 

Don’t be mastered by fear, and refuse to give in to anxiety when confronted with stressful situations.  The battles may be fierce, but as you endure hardness as a good soldier, your faith will grow and you will be more effective in what He has called you to do.

 

Just as grapes are crushed in the wine press through a process, you will bring forth much fruit in your life as you endure, stay strong and steadfast.

 

“Blessed be the LORD my Rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle,”   Psalms 144:1.

 

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.  When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you,”   Isaiah 43:1-2.

 

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the LORD and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand,”   Ephesians 6:10-13.

"Get Ready, We've Got Work to Do!"

Wanda Alger

 

 

 

In a recent series of dreams, the Lord spoke to me regarding the importance of being ready to enter into a season of immense creativity, innovation, and fruitfulness. The coming of His Spirit is not only unto the culmination of an amazing love story, but a journey of partnership with Heaven on earth. The Lord is knocking at our door with some amazing gifts, but we must be ready to join Him in the work ahead.

 

Being Invited but Not Ready

 

As He came to the door in my dream, the overarching reality was that I was NOT ready. Though I had been expectant and joyfully preparing for His coming, I had been so busy getting THINGS ready, doing special projects and making Him gifts that I had not gotten myself ready. I thought I had time, but I had gotten distracted. Not only was I not ready, I had forgotten what I was going to wear. I thought I had it all planned out, but now I realized I had no clue what I was going to wear.

 

This is an exhortation for us as Believers. Even as we faithfully work unto the Lord, we must remember it is ultimately not about what we do but who we are. WE are the ones He is coming for. WE are the apple of His eye and the joy of His heart.

 

"The days ahead are filled with possibilities. He is knocking at our door and longing for our readiness so that we can fulfill ALL that is on His Father's heart."

 

We prepare ourselves by spending time in His presence. Our identity (what we are "wearing") comes from being with Him, not from doing things for Him. We are not identified by what we do, but who and Whose we are. We must set ourselves apart as HIS. This takes time. Just as getting ready for a date takes special time and attention, so we must prepare our hearts and lives to be ready for this next season with Him.

 

He showed in the dream that some have forgotten who they are. We have unknowingly started to compare ourselves with one another (2 Cor 10:12). Even in our desire to be effective in our gifting and calling, we can easily take our eyes off the One we are to reflect and try to look like or be like someone else. Yet, each one of us has been uniquely created to express a different aspect of our Creator.

 

This is the amazing reality of how big our God is. Each one of us is a different expression of His heart and character. Ultimately, we will reflect what we focus on. We must keep our focus on our Lord and reflect more and more of HIS nature and qualities, not someone else's.

 

Our Stories Have Been Knit Together

 

Not only is He telling us to get ready, but also He is showing us what to expect. When He came to my door in the dream, He came bearing two specific gifts. One was a beautifully stitched quilt that was made by His Father. Every square of this quilt was a different chapter of our story together. It was years in the making – even generations.

 

Every part of our life together had been knit into this quilt. The detail was amazing and as I turned it over, I saw the marks of Jesus' life on this masterpiece. It was as if His Blood, sweat, and tears had fused into the quilt as a lasting reminder of the price He paid for it. The immense love and attention that went into this covering deeply moved my heart. It was evident that He, too, had been preparing (for years) for this time together.

 

Jesus wants us to remember our story. Even through the trials, troubles, and heartaches, a beautiful tapestry has been woven. His love has marked every one of our chapters. The Father has used every circumstance in our journey to create a unique testimony of His love and redemption for the world to see.

 

We can't forget this. It is to be celebrated. Even the blood, sweat, and tears have divinely marked our storyline that gives supernatural grace and power to overcome; not only our past, but our present and even our future. He is telling us He's got this. He's covering us and we can rest in that.

 

The Materials to Create

 

The second gift He brought was a bag of craft materials. As I opened it up, I was struck by how He had chosen materials that were so specific to things that I liked doing. This gift was an invitation to spend time with Him as we continued this journey together. He knew exactly what I was good at and what I enjoyed doing and had specially prepared these projects to do together. I could feel the joy in His heart as He anticipated the days ahead when we could work side-by-side on these projects.

 

This is the season that is ahead for the Bride. The Holy Spirit will be poured out in days to come. This is to empower us to continue the work of bringing Heaven to earth. God has not stopped creating things. The creation of Genesis was but a foretaste of His divine ability and joy in bringing new life and new expression to the earth.

 

There is coming a time of unprecedented creativity and implementation of ideas that will display to the world how big and how good our Father is. This is to His joy. This is why we must be ready to join Him in this next chapter. We have work to do!

 

However, the enemy also sees this and is trying to exploit it. The Lord revealed that some in the Body of Christ have been lured into the enemy's trap through flattery. If the enemy can't stop us from using our spiritual gifts, he will try to use and abuse them, instead. There have been traps set by the enemy to draw some Believers into a place where the calling on their life is being manipulated and used to ultimately disqualify and destroy the purposes of God.

 

"The Lord is knocking at our door with some amazing gifts, but we must be ready to join Him in the work ahead."

 

We must be on guard and not allow flattery or undue attention to our anointing or call to distract us from our true purpose of giving attention and glory to Him. In the dream, Believers were waking up to this reality and the Lord was urging us to "pack up" any initiative or invitation that was not of Him. Stay true to HIS path and HIS plan and be wary of any fast-track to success or notoriety.

 

The importance of becoming holy as He is holy has great ramifications, even into the area of finances. He showed that when HIS PLAN AND OUR PATH CONVERGE in proper alignment, financial provision that has seemed lacking or even lost will be released!

 

The spirit of poverty will be broken as Believers say "NO" to the world's systems and set themselves apart to the only Source worth waiting for. This truth of being set apart unto Him is a major key in the financial breakthroughs everyone has been prophesying about.

 

Be Focused On The Things Above

 

In the dream, I knew that we needed to be ready by 6:30. The Lord immediately took me to Matthew 6:30: "But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?" He is telling us to remember that which is eternal and not get caught up in the anxieties of the world. As we keep our eyes fixed on Him, we must trust in His ability to care for us and address our needs.

 

Throughout these dreams I felt the Lord's expectancy, not just in revealing Himself to us, but in our discovery of Him! At one point in the dream when I was taken aback by the loving detail and attention given to the gifts He brought, I remarked to my daughter who was watching, "Have you ever seen anyone like this!?" She replied, "Yeah! YOU!" (This next generation is watching us!)

 

This is the wonderful reality of our relationship with the Lord. We are meant for each other. We carry within our spirit His DNA and likeness. He is simply reminding us to draw upon that truth and grow into that likeness. As we do, the world will be attracted to us. I saw that especially those in the business world will be drawn to sons and daughters who look like and act like the King. We will be sought out simply because we ARE different, and the fruit of our lives will draw them in.

 

The days ahead are filled with possibilities. He is knocking at our door and longing for our readiness so that we can fulfill ALL that is on His Father's heart. Let's get ready. "For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago" (Ephesians 2:10 NLT).

In the Secret Place

By Greg Laurie

 

 

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

 

—Psalm 91:1

 

When you were a kid, did you ever have a hiding place, a place you would run to when you were afraid or wanted to be alone? God wants to be your hiding place. The good news is that you can retreat to this hiding place wherever you are.

 

Psalm 91:1 tells us, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”

 

It is worth noting that the blessings promised in this psalm are not for just anyone. They are specifically given to believers—and not just believers in general but believers who specifically meet the requirements in it. Psalm 91 is full of conditional promises. God promises to do certain things for us, hinging on our doing certain things that are required of us in this psalm.

 

We have a relationship with God because we have put our faith in Jesus Christ and have turned from our sin. But are we living in constant communion and fellowship with God? That is so important. Many people are not. They are not dwelling consistently with God. But the Lord wants you to dwell in the secret place of the Most High.

 

He wants you to be like Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet when He came to visit her home in Bethany. There is a time for busyness. There is a time for work. And there is also a time to worship. Unfortunately we sometimes substitute perspiration for inspiration and work for worship.

 

If you do that, it only will be a matter of time until you spiritually burn out. You can’t give out more than you take in. You need to live in communion with Him. You need to dwell in the secret place of the Most High.

Trust Me For The Outcome

By Russ Walden

 

 

 

The Father says today, trust Me for the outcome. Relinquish all to Me. I am the hero. I am the one in control. You wanted to be in control, but the problem is you don't have all the facts. If I gave you what you think you need, your world would be so much less than what I have intended. Trust Me, says the Father. Trust My intentionality. Know that I am willing and know that I am working. I am bringing about highest heart's desire and greatest dream fulfilled in your life. What you are incapable of doing I am completely adept at accomplishing. There is no deficit of love and there is no deficit of favor when you cast yourself into total dependence on My plan and align yourself fully with My revealed expectations upon you moment by moment.

 

 

Know this, says the Father - simply because you feel unable to effect change does not mean change is not coming. Relinquish the outcome and trust Me, for I never disappoint those whose expectations are upon Me. Remember the promise of My word, that when the seed falls to the ground it will ultimately spring forth and produce exactly what you have cried out for. Give yourself over to obedience and rest. Do what you can with what you have and stick with it - for in the midst of the process I will enter in to produce a sooner not later outcome in your life.

 FIRE BY NIGHT           

 

             "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, nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB

 

October 19th 2017 – Glenn H. Jackson

 

                                                       MY  "JOSEPHS"

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*       My "Josephs" [Kingdom-financial leaders and deliverers {divine planners}] in this final hour are going to be involved in opening doors heretofore not accessible to traditional Christian "ministries". Truly I say to you, I am going to use My Kingdom-finances to bless many that could not be reached. and this will open the "floodgates" to many captives being set free from every walk of life and the bondages found therein.

 

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

 

        ...."The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon Me, because He has anointed Me [the Anointed One, the Messiah] to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity], To proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound]. [Isa. 61:1, 2.] Luke 4:18-19 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."But you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as [it is] this day".... Deuteronomy 8:18 NASB

 

        It is of the utmost importance in this hour for each of us to have our minds renewed in EVERY area of life and ministry - particularly in the area of financial prosperity. The most dangerous one [to the Enemy and his schemes] is the son or daughter of God whose heart is "wholly given". For that one will SURELY be found "abiding" in the Grace and Wisdom of God and they will take the Covenant blessings that are continually overtaking them and "bless, break and distribute" them to truly help people on a much larger scale then we have been able to imagine up until now. In reality, the Gospel of the Kingdom is quite simple and uncomplicated - however, it is ABSOLUTE, and can only be understood and walked out by those who adhere to the Divine Requirement - which is, to love the Lord with ALL of our being.

 

        ...."You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind".... Luke 10:27 NASB

 

        ...."be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect".... Romans 12:1-2 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that, in this most glorious hour, You are raising up Your "Josephs" throughout the remnant Church - true sons and daughters who will handle Your Kingdom-finances with pin-point accuracy [in the Power of Your Grace and Wisdom]. In light of these things, we boldly proclaim that the "floodgates" of Your divine Provision are NOW wide open - affecting the earth as a flood. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

Releasing A Mighty Sound!

By Dana Jarvis

 

 

Right now I want to release a mighty sound.  A sound that decrees victory.  A sound that shouts for new life to spring up again.

 

A sound that shifts!  A sound that reaches the ears of the Almighty and activates all of Heaven on our behalf.  An anointed sound, a fiery sound, a sound that is crying out for God to invade every area of our lives right now in Jesus name.

 

Right now I speak to your valley experience and command a spiritual regeneration.  Though your despair is scattered like dry bones in a cemetery, you shall rise up restored!

 

The graves that have tried to hold your promises that you believed to be dead, it shall turn them loose.  I speak to the four winds to breathe upon you, Mighty Warrior.  The dry areas are seeing life again!

 

I send out this mighty sound to eradicate every mass weapon of the enemy.  We stand together and shut the enemy’s mouth.  We silence his voice and sever his lifeline as David did with Goliath.

 

Every evil plot and insidious plan is vetoed right now in the courts of Heaven!  They are null and void!

 

Oh LORD let the heavens pour out your glory!  Send forth new rains of seasonal harvest to supply every need.  We call forth resources from the North, South, East and West!

 

As we release this mighty sound that activates Heaven and shakes hell, I pray a release of fresh anointing, Father upon each one.

 

An anointing like that of Daniel where we shall magnetize individuals that will gird up our vision.  They will make deposits into our visions.

 

A anointing like that of John the Baptist, a trailblazing Kingdom builder.

 

A anointing like that of Joseph to raise up leaders.  Let these flow uncontaminated and unhindered!

 

As the apple of your eyes, we dwell in the secret place of the Most High.  We send forth this mighty sound from deep within.  The deep is calling to the deep!

 

The deep parts of us are crying out and releasing this Heavenly sound.  We are binding the powers and principalities of darkness and as we send this sound forth, let it flow throughout all of Heaven and Earth and the prayers, which we direct and target in a determined direction shall not miss!

 

In Jesus name, I release the mighty sound!  Our course is set as we walk through days ahead of restoration, special Revelations, supernatural splendor and supply!

Rejoice, My Bride!

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

 

Beloved.  Oh, I declare to you it is a happy day!  Rejoice, My Bride.  I AM carrying you over the threshold, from yesterday into your tomorrow.

 

Remember not the former things neither consider the things of old.  Behold, I AM doing a new thing; now it shall spring forth.

 

I have chosen you and appointed you.  Even in the midst of your trial, celebrate. Celebrate that your Savior lives and is alive forever more.

 

For surely I shall deliver you from the hand of the enemy.  I have closed the door on him and no one will be able to open it again.  I AM He who is faithful and true.

 

You have passed from darkness to light, from death to LIFE, from lost to found.  Let not your faith be found in the wisdom of men but in the power of your God.

 

I AM the Door to glorious treasures and marvelous answers to prayer that your mind can barely comprehend, Little One.  I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.

 

Just trust your Abba Father.  Come boldly to My Throne of Grace and make your requests known, My Love.

 

For I know what you have need of before you even ask.  Eye has not seen nor ear heard nor has it entered into the heart of man the things which I have prepared for those who love Me.

 

Let not your heart be troubled, Dear One.  You are entering a NEW PLACE of intimacy with your Beloved.  The Bridegroom and the Bride are One.

 

There are GOOD and WONDER FILLED days ahead, My Child, which I have prepared for you from the foundations of the earth.

 

Threshold:  Gate, door; the place or point of entering or beginning; outset, on the threshold of a new age.

 

“Many, LORD my God, are the wonders You have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with You; were I to speak and tell of Your deeds, they would be too many to declare,”   Psalm 40:5.

 

“Listen to Me.  You who have been borne by Me from birth and have been carried from the womb; even to your old age I will be the same, and even to your graying years I will bear you!  I have done it, and I will carry you; and I will bear you and I will deliver you,”   Isaiah 46:3-4.

 

“You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you,”   John 15:16.

 

“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

 

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.  But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit.  For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God,””   1 Corinthians 2:7-10.

I Will Fulfill My Promises to You!

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

 

“My love cannot and will not change with the times and seasons of your life, and will not be put out by the floods of the enemy that endeavor to extinguish the My Holy Spirits fire.

 

My love conquerors, and My love for you defeats and destroys the works of the enemy.  It will never destroy you!

 

Trust that what I have for you is always good, and I will not deny you ANY GOOD THING,” says the LORD.

 

“Be confident in Me, and let Me bring you comfort and joy as I embrace you and reassure you that I AM your eternal, loving Father, that will do you good all the days of your life, and you will dwell with Me forever,” says the LORD, “as I prepare a place for you that cannot be extracted from you or ever deteriorate or depreciate in value.

 

You are a child of My love, and you are never forgotten by Me.  I have NOT forgotten My promises and I will fulfill you as well as everything that I have promised you,” says the LORD.

Healing to the Bride

By Yolanda Ballard

 

 

 

The LORD is calling His bride to come by His side, to draw close, to rest in His intimate presence and love, to be still and know He is her God, that He will be with her through all that they go through, that they are not alone.

 

Yes, many just need to come aside from all the hustle and the bustle and just rest with Him knowing that He alone is all that we need.  Besides Him there is no God, no answer or solution.  Only He can meet all our needs.  He just wants us to draw close and rest in Him.

 

Just bask in His presence, in His peace and love and allow Him to refresh and build you up for many have gone through hard times.  If we don’t draw close to the LORD, then the enemy comes and brings the storms, the turmoil.

 

All it takes is to just sacrifice the time away from all the busyness and the distractions demanding our time.  We must take authority over the works of the enemy to pull us aside and say “no more!” to him.

 

Be determined to come into our resting place in God.  He gave us His son to give us an abundant life but it can be found only in Him.  Rest, be still, and know that He is your God.  The secret is in truly knowing Him and that takes intimacy.

 

Be at peace, draw close, and be refreshed this very hour.  Breathe in so He can fill you up.  Relax knowing He has everything under control.  He has your back and He has good in store for you no matter how things look, they are all working for your good.

 

With God for you who can come against you and draw you away from Him?  Only you if you allow it to happen.  Cast off all the idols.  Yes, all the electronics that binds you.  Take authority over them.  We possess them not the other way around.

 

Yes, this is the hour to be determined to make Jesus our all in all, our only desire, and stir up that love for Him once again.  You always have time for the One we truly love!

 

It is not all about works but in being His bride and being close.  Then everything else will take its rightful place.  As we rest we begin to hear clearly.  Just like a dance or a romance we must draw close.  Allow the LORD to take the guard off of your heart.  You can truly trust Him with your love.

 

So many have been so greatly wounded they’ve built a wall around their heart like a prison.  God is saying it is all right to allow it to come down.  It is safe with Him.  Do not run from that place of intimacy.  Allow the LORD to heal your heart and to be one with Him once again.

 

You cannot have that place of intimacy with God if you don’t truly trust Him.  God is ready to take away all that binds you and keeps you from being by His side.  Now is the hour He is pouring out His power to truly set us free to be the bride He called us to be.

 

Without this restoration we cannot function!  We are just going through the motion without the true emotion of love.  God’s love cannot flow out if it cannot flow in.

 

Father, I pray that this very hour will be a time of healing and Your bride being truly set free to be the one you called her to be in Jesus name.

 

Bride, worship your King!  Yes, one night with your King and you will never be the same.  Taste and see that the LORD is good!

A Sunrise, a Sword and a Sweeping Away

By Christine Beadsworth

 

 

Greetings in the precious Name of Jesus!

 

I am still preparing a message on what I feel the Lord is saying for this year 5778 and want to make sure I hear and see the whole context clearly before sending it out. However, on Sunday I had the privilege of participating in an amazing worship meeting and the Spirit gave me a number of images in the spirit with messages attached. I would like to share three with you and pray they may encourage you:

 

1) I saw a figure worshiping with arms raised, facing the sun which was coming over the horizon in full strength ( I could see rays coming out of the sun). There were two figures standing with this person, one behind each shoulder. They were dressed in ash-grey robes and I knew somehow that they had journeyed with this person for a long time. As the person continued to worship with all their heart, the two figures in grey began to cower and draw back and finally, they could no longer bear being anywhere near this scene of such wholehearted worship and they ran away. The Lord told me the names of these two figures were Sorrow and Sighing.

 

Saints, worship the rising Son of Righteousness with all your heart and soul and mind and strength at this time, no matter how dark or sad your journey has been. He is coming with healing in His wings. Focus on Him alone and do not turn to look back at the sadness of the valley you have journeyed through. As you do so, the light and joy emanating from you, a vessel wholly filled with the praises of God, will repel all darkness that has accompanied your steps and you will enter a new day filled with the light of the Sun of Righteousness. The Lord reminded me of some scriptures concerning this unfolding scene of deliverance:

 

Isaiah 35:10  And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with singing, and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

 

Isaiah 51:11  [The Lord God says] And the redeemed of the Lord shall return and come with singing to Zion; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

 

Isaiah 30:26  …and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, like the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord binds up the hurt of His people, and heals their wound. …Isa 30:29  You shall have a song as in the night when a holy feast is kept, and gladness of heart as when one marches in procession with a flute to go to the temple on the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel.

 

 

2) During the worship, I became aware of an intense, unrelenting pressure which someone was experiencing. I did not understand where it was coming from. Then I saw the edge of a sword blade being pressed against a revolving grinding stone as it was sharpened. The Lord said, “Some of My people think they are still in the refiner’s fire because of the intense pressure felt against the unrelenting hard place which they are experiencing. But the fire has completed its function and you, my weapon of war, are fully formed. I sharpen you now in preparation for battle.”

 

Zechariah  9:13  For I have bent Judah for Myself as My bow, filled the bow with Ephraim as My arrow, and will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and will make you as the sword of a mighty man.

 

Then I saw the scene in Revelation 19 with the sword coming out of the mouth of the One Who is called Faithful and True, and I was given understanding that this sword proceeding from His mouth would speak and decree the Word of God that is sharp to divide between soul and spirit and that this battle would be waged both through writings and the spoken word in live messages and decrees. The sword is kept in its sheath against the thigh of a mighty man until the moment he needs to wield it.  But when He knows the battle is about to begin, he prepares His sword accordingly.

 

Rev 19:11  And I saw Heaven being opened. And, behold! A white horse, and He sitting on it having been called Faithful and True. And He judges and wars in righteousness.

 

The intention is to judge and wage war in righteousness, not unrighteousness. Remember the description in Isaiah 11, both of the Lord and ultimately of those who have grown to the full measure of the stature oft he fullness of Christ:

 

Isaiah 11:4  But with righteousness and justice shall He judge the poor and decide with fairness for the meek, the poor, and the downtrodden of the earth; and He shall smite the earth and the oppressor with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. Isa 11:5  And righteousness shall be the girdle of His waist and faithfulness the girdle of His loins.

 

Here is the key - judging with righteousness and justice and striking the right target down!  It is no use slaying the poor and downtrodden by mistake and causing the oppressor to rejoice that you have strengthened his hand...

 

A dull sword cannot be used with precision in battle and so the Lord sharpens with intent to use this weapon of war with precision in the days ahead. The sharpening is painful for the sword and it is diminished in measure by the surface against which it is held and pressed, but it is far more effective to deal one swift accurate blow with a razor-sharp sword against the enemy, than it is to hack repeatedly at a target with a blunt blade.

 

I was also given the impression that the ‘grinding stone’ which the Lord will use may also be the hard heads of other believers in the Body of Christ. Do not be tempted to use your tongue to hack at your brother or sister in Christ when contending over. They are not the enemy. Remember the grinding stone is also one of the Lord’s tools. It is not part of the enemy’s arsenal. You are still in the tool shed or the heavenly Blacksmith’s quarters, being adequately prepared. We wrestle not against flesh and blood and any opportunity to be sharpened in these final preparatory days is in order to deal death blows to the hiding places of the enemy and to decimate his kingdom. Allow the pressing to remove any dull bits in your understanding of the Word and do not be a part of inflicting ‘friendly fire’. A sharp sword wielded by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords will pierce immediately to the heart of the matter. Paul so accurately describes the godly manner of engaging in battle:

 

2Timothy 2:24  And the servant of the Lord must not be quarrelsome (fighting and contending). Instead, he must be kindly to everyone and mild-tempered [preserving the bond of peace]; he must be a skilled and suitable teacher, patient and forbearing and willing to suffer wrong. 2Ti 2:25  He must correct his opponents with courtesy and gentleness, in the hope that God may grant that they will repent and come to know the Truth [that they will perceive and recognize and become accurately acquainted with and acknowledge it], 2Ti 2:26  And that they may come to their senses [and] escape out of the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him, [henceforth] to do His [God's] will.

 

Yes, civil war has been prophesied within the Church, and unfortunately it is coming, but make every effort to preserve the bond of peace and allow the One Who wages war in righteousness to use you to set your brethren free through your courtesy and gentle approach in speaking Truth. And at this point, when you are still in the process of being sharpened, receive the reducing at the hand of the grindstone with humility. You are becoming the swift sword of a Mighty Man!

3) I heard the Lord say, “The tide is rising” and I saw the level of the sea rising extremely fast. Then I saw a flooding wave knock over barriers like they were matchsticks and sweep them up in its path forward and He said, “I will sweep away the barriers of unbelief which you have set up to protect yourselves from further pain.

 

You have done this because hope deferred has made your heart sick. But now, Beloved, prepare to be swept away by a flood tide of My love. Prepare to be overwhelmed by lavish displays of My exceedingly powerful love for you.”

 

Then I saw the inside of a house and the passageway leading up to the front door and I heard, “Open the door” and the door swung open and a flood tide of foaming sea water barreled into the house and began to fill every room until the level rose to the ceilings. And the Lord said, “Yes, I am coming to your house. Open the door for Me to enter and prepare to be swept away by the greatness of My goodness toward you and yours.” As He said this, I began to feel a strong pressure against my chest, almost as if I was standing in that passageway and being hit by the great force of the wave of love that was penetrating my space. Then as I continued to open up and welcome the Lord to have His way, I could feel that flood filling me on the inside, just as I had seen on the inside of the house scene. I also had the sense that this vast surge of water was connected with the level of waters to swim in the river described in Ezekiel 47:

 

Ezekiel 47:5  Afterward he measured a thousand, and it was a river that I could not pass through, for the waters had risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over or through.

 

The previous levels speak of a measuring and a testing at the ankle, knee and loins. But after this is complete, the rivers that sweep you off your feet and carry you into the fullness of His purposes is here. Open up to Him and prepare to be to be swept away by the flood tide of His healing love. Wherever the river goes, everything lives.

"Do Not Fear, the Breaker is Here!"

By Alane Haynes

 

 

 

"The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them." (Micah 2:13 KJV)

 

On a recent morning, I felt the presence of the Lord strongly because I had two dreams in the night and had just woken from them. One was about identity, and in the other, I was in a dangerous situation that caused fear. I thought of the Equifax breach and was reminded that my life is hidden in Christ with God – that He is my identity and I am safe and secure with Him.

 

All things are hidden in Him. As I was declaring His greatness, I heard, "The King Eternal," and "The Only Wise God."

 

"I declare right now NO LOSS. I declare that the angels are standing guard, and their presence creates a cloud that separates you from the enemy's eyes. You are HIDDEN! All that belongs to you is HIDDEN!"

 

"Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, [be] honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen." (1 Timothy 1:17 KJV)

 

"To the only wise God our Saviour, [be] glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen." (Jude 1:25 KJV)

 

The Lord then impressed upon me to look up "wise." In Strong's Concordance, one of the definitions of the word wise is "forming the best plans and using the best means for their execution." This is our God: the One who forms the best plans and uses the best means to execute His plans – He is still on the throne, the ONLY wise God.

 

I felt the Holy Spirit nudge me to look up "Savior." I thought this was odd because I have looked it up many times and know about the fullness of salvation that is included in the word Savior. However, I looked it up because I knew that Holy Spirit was going to show me something for NOW.

 

We Are Preserved From Destruction

 

One of the words included in the definition is "to preserve one who is in danger of destruction." I heard that many in the Body of Christ are in fear right now and need to be reminded that I AM has going before them, that I AM preserves them, and that in I AM there is no danger that can come near!

 

I was reminded of how Jesus passed through the crowd invisible. Yes, "the King eternal, immortal, INVISIBLE..." "Then took they up stones to cast at Him: but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by." (John 8:59 KJV)

 

 

The Israelites were also hidden from the Egyptians as they passed through the Red Sea (Exodus 14:19-20 KJV). The enemy cannot come near; you are hidden, do not fear!

 

How did they pass through? By faith in God's Word that He would go before them and take them into the Promised Land. Fear will drown your faith! The enemy wants you to drown in fear! But God says, "My angels surround and I AM near!"

 

"By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned." (Hebrews 11:29 KJV)

 

Our Identity is Hidden in Christ

 

We are in a season requiring GREAT faith. The enemy is coming strong to try and block us from entering the land of promise. Yet the LORD is with us, the KING is with us right now, to lead us into His great and precious promises.

 

Our identity is in HIM, not in what the world says, not in our money, our bank account or our credit rating. He hides us under the shadow of His wings. "Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in Thee: yea, in the shadow of Thy wings will I make my refuge, until [these] calamities be over past" (Psalm 57:1 KJV).

 

In the book of Micah, Chapter 2, the enemy was coming in strong against God's people to plunder their goods and take the glory from their children (Micah 2:1-2, 9). The enemy is so predictable! Jesus said, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly" (John 10:10 KJV). Abundant life, not plunder and lack. He has come to bring life – abundant life!

 

"This is our God: the One who forms the best plans and uses the best means to execute His plans – He is still on the throne, the ONLY wise God."

 

He is with us, and the angelic host is doing battle on our behalf even right now. Our faith and the words of our mouth speaking faith are key! He is the only wise God – Eternal, Immortal, Invisible – to Him be glory, majesty, dominion and power now and forever, AMEN.

 

All That Belongs to You is Hidden

 

I declare right now NO LOSS. I declare that the angels are standing guard, and their presence creates a cloud that separates you from the enemy's eyes. You are HIDDEN! All that belongs to you is HIDDEN!

 

There are forces doing battle in the heavenlies right now. Even as prayers brought release of Peter from jail, prayers are bringing our release from being held captive in fear (Acts 12:10). The angels are opening the gates and we will pass through! Believe, for He is near, believe and do not fear!

 

Now back to the Equifax breach... what does Equifax mean? In Latin, "equi" means equal. "Fax" is short for facsimile – an exact COPY. The enemy wants us to cower in fear at potential loss of identity – but GOD! His plan is that we come into our TRUE IDENTITY, not a copy (a facsimile) but the TRUE and ACTUAL new creation that Jesus died for.

 

     He wants us living with His life in us and His power coming through us. He wants His life being seen and known in the earth – Jesus the HEAD of the Church – making known to the principalities and powers the manifold wisdom of God BY THE CHURCH! "To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the Church the manifold wisdom of God" (Ephesians 3:10 KJV).

 

His strategies and His plans, making known to the principalities and powers HIS MANIFOLD WISDOM by us! How? Walk in faith, not fear. Know that the I AM is ever near. Jesus died and rose again. He's seated on high and we are with HIM! Do not cower in fear, for I AM near.

 

"I AM in front and will appear when the time is right. I will make known that I AM the One upon the throne. All things are created for My glory and your true identity is part of My story. Do not fear, for I AM near. The gate will open for MY NAME. I have declared and will receive all fame. Stay in faith and walk with Me, hidden in Christ you will ever be. In the days ahead you will see, and in MY identity be set free."

 

"The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them." (Micah 2:13 KJV)

“Mysteries of Intimacy"

Part C

 

By Nita LaFond Johnson

 

 

When I was in India ministering, my friend and I were in a room together and we were spending time seeking the Lord. She was studying and I was praying and she said, “Listen, I want you to listen to this.” She read a couple of scriptures out of Jacob’s life. Suddenly, I was thrust into travail and I saw what happened that day that Jacob wrestled with the angel.

 

Here we have a man, who like my friend, has all of this sludge in his heart, but in a brief moment I saw what was in the bottom of his heart and down under that sludge was a heart that wanted God and wanted only God. And the Lord said to me, All of the things that I see in Jacob are of nothing to Me. They are like dust to be blown away in the wind because of the one purity that I see, and that is his love for Me, his desire to have only Me.

 

And so I saw him, Jacob. The angel that Jacob wrestled with was Michael, the angel that watches over Israel. I saw him wrestle with Michael until he was broken. But do you know what was broken that day? Jacob’s will. I saw him kneel down before Michael, a broken man. His will was finally broken and once his will was broken, he bowed down before Michael and Michael asked, What is your name? Jacob began to share his name when Michael said, “Today, your name is changed. Your name is no longer Jacob, but it is Israel.” And as he said that, he placed a king’s crown on Jacob’s head. That crown stood for a life destined to submission, submission to God in all things.

 

We think that God looks at our lives, judging us by the things that we do, like coming in and worshipping in the sanctuary, if I worship Him better than someone else worships Him. If I have a nicer voice than someone else does. If I teach, or if I do this or that for God, He is more pleased with me than He is with someone else that may not do all those things, or have the nice voice. Yet, he does not look at any of those things. What pleases Him is a heart willing to submit to Him in the work of the cross and that pleases Him more than anything else we can give Him.

 

And so He says of David that he had a beautiful continence and in God’s eyes he was goodly to look at. We looked at King David, remember the one who had the affair with Bathsheba? This same man had her husband killed and yet God says, He is a man after My own heart. The reason He said that about him was because, in spite of a pocket of impurity in David, he saw a countenance that was beautiful and in this countenance was a heart that was willing to submit to the cross, a heart that was willing to submit to the disciplines of God.

 

Now, you see Saul in contrast. Saul was never willing to submit to God’s disciplines, was he? Whenever he began to be disciplined by Samuel, he made every excuse in the world for why he did the things that he did. He never honored God with a heart and a life of submission to the discipline, whereas David was just the opposite. He did some pretty incredible and evil things, yet, when it was time to be disciplined and taught and trained, he was bendable. He was moldable, willing to be disciplined and willing to submit to the Lord in discipline. I like what my friend once said: “Just grab hold of the feet of Jesus.”

 

I was going through a storm earlier this year in the month of January before we went out to India. When I told my friend we were going to India, he said, “Let me pray for you.” So he prayed, “Lord, bring them there through a storm.” I thought, Now, that is one prayer I could have done without. Warfare is hard enough in India without having someone pray for a storm. But that is exactly what I got.

 

I had this tremendous storm that ripped across my life. Every day the pain from that storm was so intense that I wondered if I was going to make it through it. My heart hurt so badly and I would sit down and say to the Lord, “The pain is so intense. It feels like I am going to lose my mind because of the pain that is in my heart. So Lord, I am just going to sit here and I am going to submit and I am going to yield myself to the cross.” And I would begin to bow my head, in my heart, in my entire body, in my entire being before the cross.

 

Within seconds I was lifted up into the realm of the Spirit and there was Jesus, hanging on the cross. When I would see him, I would grab hold of His feet, just like my friend said. I wrapped my arms around the cross and grabbed hold of His feet and wept over His feet. My heart would go deeper and deeper into submission. After a little while, I began to feel oil flow down over my head from out of the crown of thorns that he bore on his head. As this oil began to drip down upon my head, my heart was healed and the pain was removed. I found myself in a deeper place in Him when it was over.

 

This happened every day throughout the intensity of that storm as I would go through and kneel before him. What He loves is a heart that is willing to submit to Him and His disciplines and His dealings. He sees that as a “goodly countenance.” He sees that as beautiful to look at.

 

You may make a mistake, but if you are willing to submit to the discipline of the cross, the Lord sees your heart as beautiful, lovely to look at. Furthermore, if you cannot or will not submit to the discipline of the cross, you will never have a deeper place in God. You cannot have a deeper place in God. So God saw in David this deep, deep purity, a love for God’s glory alone. And the Lord is looking for that in His eagles.

 

Anyone who is part of the Bride, who has paid the price to spend time with the Lord, is brought through a gate. Let’s call it “gate beautiful.” They are brought through this gate and when they reach the other side of the gate, their heart is forever changed. All they desire is His glory alone. They desire to look upon His glory and they desire for Him to be glorified, even if it means much suffering for them. The self-life has been so crucified that they are no longer desiring glory for themselves.

 

On the way here, I was told that Singaporeans have a deep sense of self-respect, of their name being respected. I know that that’s a characteristic of the Asian race everywhere. But you know, those who have gone through this “gate beautiful” have lost that desire—they have died to that. It no longer matters to them whether or not their name is respected. They are willing to suffer shame and reproach if it means bringing glory to Him.

 

And so He brings us through this path of developing this inner purity until this stream or deposit of purity so fills the heart that it becomes one with His heart, with His purity. Only the cross will take us there.

 

To be continued next week…

Welcome to Yoke Easy and Burden Light

By Russ Walden

 

 

The Father says today, welcome to yoke easy and burden light. When the deception of the heavy burden tries to overcome you, remember My promise. When heaviness and darkness seem to define all that is happening around you, open your mouth and proclaim the yoke easy and burden light. This is My heritage in your life and this is the earnest of My inheritance that is shaping and molding you now and determining what happens next. What the enemy threatens is just smoke and mirrors. The bottom line is I am a faithful God and you are My beloved child.

 

 

The price then has been paid, beloved. You need not calculate what the trial is going to extract or take away from you, for what man thinks he can steal from you I will give back in greater measure. I am multiplying My goodness in your life, says the Father. I am filling you up with My goodness with a pressed down, shaken together and running over measure. Just call to Me. Call out to Me and be saved. Saved in circumstance and saved in outcome just as I have saved you in spirit and soul and body.

   FIRE BY NIGHT           

 

             "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, nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB

 

October 18th 2017 – Glenn H. Jackson

 

                           OUR PART IS FAITH, LOVE AND OBEDIENCE

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*       The exercising of anxiety [fear, doubt, worry, unbelief] stops the flow of the "spirit of faith" within one's heart. The exercising of a true [absolute] faith shuts out [stops cold] anxiety in ALL of its forms [fear, doubt, worry, unbelief].

 

        ...."Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way"..... Psalms 139:22-24 NASB

 

        ...."But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE," we also believe, therefore we also speak".... 2 Corinthians 4:13 NASB

 

        The Covenant is the Covenant and, when perceived in and through the "spirit of faith", one can quickly come to a "knowing" of the spiritual reality that what God says He means and that He is continually watching over His Word to perform it. Our part is faith, love and obedience - knowing in our heart [at all times] that Love can NEVER fail to bring about that which Love has spoken.

 

"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];

 

        ...."I am alert and active, watching over My Word [Will] to perform it".... Jeremiah 1:12b The Amplified Translation

 

        ....."Love [God's Love in us] never fails".... 1 Corinthians 13:8 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You are continually watching over Your Word [our Covenant] to perform it in our lives - as we continually exercise a steadfast faith, love and obedience. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

Forsake Riches & Follow After ME!

By Stephen Hanson

 

 

“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God,”   Mark 10:25.

 

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it,”   Matthew 7:13.

 

“Does not wisdom tell you to refrain from speech that is not profitable?

 

Seek the way that only those who know Me have found.  Look unto Me,” says the Lord, “and tell Me:

 

Is there anyone who has been rewarded with riches and wealth, who has been able to take them with them?

 

Many seek after these things, thinking that their lives will be better.  They find a life of ease and comfort and they pave their way towards acquiring more and more.

 

For the thirst for riches is a never-ending struggle.  It is an insatiable thing.  For have I not said that it is easier for a camel to enter through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven?

 

I have called you to give up the things of this world.  I have called you to put Me first in your life.

 

It’s not to say that you would have all that you need; but having what you need is different than having what you want.

 

Remember that ‘godliness with contentment is great gain.’  Many in the past have fallen into this trap.  The world is not your home.  Your home lies within My Kingdom.

 

I AM the precious pearl that would be found in a field.  I AM the Stone that the builders rejected.

 

I came to my own and yet my own rejected Me.  They rejected Me because they didn’t know the way, even though I showed them the way.

 

The way is a narrow way; it is not the road that is wide, for the world always takes the easier way. But if you travel down the narrow road then you will walk with Me.”

 

 

 

Selah,

Despise Not Prophesying & the Word of the Lord!

By Geraldine Fisher

 

 

Last night I had a dream that the LORD had me to speak in tongues and as I spake, the LORD gave me a word to release to a leader and the Word said, “I will deal with the wicked leaders!”

 

As I looked, the people went on as though I was out of order with their regular program of service and they went on as though I did not exist.  But one thing I noticed about the dream was that the leader I gave the word of the LORD to, was already dead.

 

But as I begin to release the Word and to wait on the interpretation, the leader said to me, “Write it down and give it to me and I will release it to the people.”  But as he said that, a curse word came from his lips in front of the congregation.

 

As I went on in the dream, it looked like I was sitting in the pulpit and some of the members began asking me,  “Is this your wig?”  As I kept on in the dream, the leader said, “I’ve changed my mind. I want you to release the word the LORD gave to you to the people.”

 

So I noticed in the dream that it was taking him all day to finish the program he was doing, but as I paid attention in the dream, the LORD showed me he was doing it out of spite, so I would leave.

 

Application and Revelation

 

In this season, I believe the LORD is going to deal with those who are rejecting both His Words and His prophets in this season.

 

The bible warn us to pray without ceasing, and In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning us.

 

It said to quench not the Spirit and to Despise not prophesying.  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.  Abstain from all appearance of evil.  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our LORD Jesus Christ,  (1 Thessalonians 5:17-23).

 

No one can force you to receive a word, but one thing for sure is that we are to pray about it and to test every spirit in prayer even when we do not understand it, by placing it upon the shelf to see if it is in fact a word from the LORD or not.

 

Which is something that this leader in the dream refused to do.  Instead of him praying about it, he allowed his members to mock and to ridicule me; as well.  The prophets and apostle are no stranger to rejection and ridicule, that is for sure!  As a matter of fact it is in their DNA!

 

JESUS THE FATHER WAS, “despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.  And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. . . . He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who will declare His generation?  For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of my people He was stricken”  (Isaiah 53:3-4).  Just as I was in the dream.

 

I believe the LORD is saying that there is a spirit of death in the land!

 

This spirit has come to the house of many leaders in this season, because the leader I was releasing the word of the LORD to was dead and he was no longer alive.

 

The LORD allowed him to confirm it out of his own mouth because he condemned himself, because foul words begin to ring as he was refusing the word which God had me to speak into the hearts of the people!

 

Do not let any unwholesome talk (corrupt communication) come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen,  (Ephesians 4:29).

 

How many of us know that the anointing runs from the head to the feet?  So many leaders in the church are allowing their own contamination to cause the whole body to be sick all because they have forsaken the word of the LORD in the house!

 

The LORD is speaking and it is time to do a U-Turn and to repent and to come back to God in this season, for judgement shall begin in the house of God, First.

 

And, if it begin with us what shall be the outcome of the ungodly and the poor sinner? (1 Peter 4:17).

Take Your Position!

By Thomas Downes

 

 

“Take your position.  You are called to walk in the anointing that breaks the yoke, and sets the captive free.

 

One who is called does not hide himself behind a wall but stands upon the Rock.  You are the flag bearer, the carrier of the standard that sets the benchmark according to the Word of the Lord that is revealed to you.

 

You are the Oracle, the Prophetic Voice that the LORD, by the power of the Holy Spirit, has called, because He knows how well the Word that is Sent will pour forth through your obedience.

 

The LORD has given you the song of the Spirit, the cry that calls out “Abba Father”.

 

Do not remain silent, for the LORD has given to you the Keys of the Kingdom.  The Word that is sent will not fall to the ground.

 

It will, with power, accomplish the purpose for which it is sent.  His love will surround you, and His love will carry and protect you.

 

Fear not for I AM with you, says the LORD.  And, I AM filling your mouth with the truth that will set you free,” says the LORD.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving & Praise

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

 

LORD, I come before you in thanksgiving and praise for Who You are, and all that You have done in me and those I love and entrust to Your care.

 

I thank You for Your unspeakable gifts, blessings and constant care, as our Savior and LORD.  I trust You as My Great Shepherd, Who keeps me and my loved ones night and day.

 

I ask that You be with each of us as we face another day with all of the challenges and demands.  Give us new strength so that we can complete each task and succeed in all that we put our minds and hands to do.

 

Minister to every need, as the Ever present, All-seeing, All powerful GOD!  I ask You to help us with that which we know and the hidden things that only Your eyes see.

 

Protect us as You cover us with Your feathers and undergird us and keep us from falling.  Help us to focus on the blessings that You daily load us with and not the difficulties we encounter this day.

 

I pray that you will encourage us and cause us to rise up above the cares of this life, so that we can be of benefit to the Kingdom of GOD.

 

May You enlighten our path and make a way for us where there seems to be none. We trust You as our Sovereign God who knows the way that we take.  Lead us in the right direction and encourage our hearts as we focus on Your presence.

 

Thank You for Your abiding peace as You watch over us this day, and provide for all of our needs as only You can do.  We bless Your Holy name, and give You all the praise and honor and glory that only belongs to You.  Amen.

Place Of Triumph

By Deb Zickafoose

 

 

 

 

2 Words in 1

 

 

 

Facets of Being a Christian

 

It was about 10-11 years ago the LORD showed me a huge diamond.  On that diamond there were many facets.  If there were no facets than that diamond would not shine.

 

It takes cutting away the old, the outside, the not so nice pieces to make the glorious shine.  The beautiful sparkle and all that the diamond is, comes from removing the dull outside.

 

Then He said the facets of the diamond are his body.  Each facet touches and is joined together in unity to bring that glorious shine.  As each part of the body comes into unity another facet shines.

 

Where do you stand?

 

Are you united with his body?  Or are you out there alone?

 

He gives us fellowship to support one another.  He tells us iron sharpens iron.  Unity gives us strength, and gives us support.

 

Each part of his body serves a purpose.  We are powerful, glorious and created in His image.  We are to stand and shine like a light on a hill.

 

He has created us in his image, to go the long haul, to fight the fight.  So I ask, where do you stand?

 

Are you a loner with no undergirding?

 

Or are partnered with the body?

 

Where are you called to be?

 

His love leads to unity, so you can shine with all His Glory.

Place Of Triumph

 

My mighty people stand in victory for I have won the race.  I have left you in great authority over the earth and the enemy who dwells upon it.

 

Stand in your mighty place of triumph for I have placed you high.  Stand in the place of your call, for all are needed.

 

Oh my mighty people you are glorious, you are beautiful.  Rise oh to your place, for I uphold you.

 

My mighty ones there is glory over the land.   Look, see what I have planted there.

 

Look and see that the land holds great lusts of the world.  Bind those lusts, and lock them up.  For I hold the keys, I hold the keys to those things you cannot see.

 

Hold strong My people, I AM your strength, you My people have the strength to hold tight.

 

You have the love and ability to stand upon my word.  Oh My people, take hold for the enemy has lost.  For I have sent him to the pits; feed him no more, give him no more strength.

 

Oh My mighty people, rise into that place you are called.  Give the enemy no strength.  For I have given you the glory and peace of My Kingdom.

I Cannot Fail You!

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

 

My peace cannot be purchased with any amount of silver and gold, says the LORD.

 

It cannot be earned and cannot be manufactured or duplicated by anyone or anything.  My peace will be given to you, even as you trust in Me.

 

It is free to whoever will come to Me in simple, child-like, dependent faith.  This peace will bring you rest, even as I slept in the boat during the raging storm as my disciples tried unsuccessfully to reach the safety of the other shore.

 

You can rest in Me with this same confidence, knowing that you will not be destroyed by the winds of adversity, and the flood gates of the enemy that are opened against you will not destroy you or deter you from your destiny in Me, says the LORD.

 

You do not have to work up confidence in yourself or try to perform at a higher level, says the LORD.

 

Place all of your faith and hope and confidence in Me.  For I cannot fail.  I will not fail, and I have not failed you in the past.

 

You did not fail either, because you have endured the storms that have endeavored to take you under.  Your life is hid in Me, and I AM your security.

 

You can be confident in My goodness and mercy.  You can be assured of My love and compassion for you.  You can count on My faithfulness, and know that I AM that shelter for you in the time of any storm, and you are secure in Me, says the LORD.

The LORD says, I Will Strengthen You!

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

 

Fear not, Beloved.  Do not look anxiously about you.  I AM with you; be not dismayed, for I AM your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

 

Salvation belongs to your God.  You are Mine and I am yours.  I have saved you to the uttermost.  I have chosen you and NOT rejected you, My Child.

 

Behold, you are a NEW creation.  When you could not save yourself and there was no one to rescue you from the grips of evil, I saved you by My own Right Hand.  Let no one steal your joy.

 

Let nothing shake your confidence.  Breathe a sigh of relief, for it no longer depends upon you, My Bride.  Just come and rest, Dear One.

 

Let your soul cling to Me.  My Right Hand upholds you.  Those forces of darkness who contend with you will be as nothing and will perish.

 

As we walk together, I AM lighting your way. I will not let you fall.  I AM making known to you the way you should go by My Spirit.  Walk fearlessly, Dear One.  Hand in hand we will walk as One through this life.

 

My ransomed are returning.  You have come to Me and are RADIANT with My Glory!  Everlasting joy shall be upon your head, My Bride.

 

You shall obtain gladness and joy and your sorrow and sighing shall flee away.  Be strong and fear not!  In My Presence is fullness of joy, at My Right Hand pleasures forevermore!

 

“Nevertheless I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand,”   Psalm 73:23.

 

“For I am the LORD your God, who upholds your right hand, Who says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you,'”   Isaiah 41:13.

 

“You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called from its remotest parts and said to you, ‘You are My servant, I have chosen you and not rejected you.  Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.  Behold, all those who are angered at you will be shamed and dishonored; Those who contend with you will be as nothing and will perish,”    Isaiah 41:9-11.

 

“You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever,”   Psalm 16:11.

 

“Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who have an anxious heart, be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.”   Isaiah 35:3.

 

“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be] for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: and the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away,”  Isaiah 35:8-10.

Through the Fire

By Greg Laurie

 

 

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.

 

—Isaiah 43:2

 

Years ago my wife was cooking a steak, and as she often does, she threw it on and then went and did something else. But on this particular occasion, she forgot about the steak. Then she said, “Something is burning. What’s that smell?”

 

Let’s just say it was well done.

 

I’m glad that when we go through fiery trials as believers, God doesn’t get distracted, forget about us, and leave us there.

 

David wrote in Psalm 23, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me” (verse 4).

 

We must remember to cast our problems on the Lord, turning them over to Him in times of need.

 

When the people were griping and complaining about Moses, the Bible tells us that Moses cried out to the Lord. When Hezekiah received an intimidating letter from a king who was threatening to destroy him, he spread the letter out before the Lord. When Mary and Martha saw that their beloved brother Lazarus was sick, they sent word to the Lord.

 

When trouble comes your way, cast it on Him. Spread it out before Him. Call on Him. As the Scriptures say, “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).

 

Most of us would like to avoid the valleys of life, so to speak, but there are some lessons we learn there that we cannot learn anywhere else.

 

God doesn’t promise to keep us out of all trouble. But He does promise to be with us in the midst of it. It’s a great thing to know that when the Lord lets His children go through a fiery trial, He always keeps an eye on them and an eye on the thermostat.

Come To Me In The Quiet Place

By Russ Walden

 

 

The Father says today, come to Me in the quiet place. Come away beloved from the din and hue of the noise that men make and find the place of quiet confidence in Me. I have led you and I am leading you. I am bringing you into the DEEP calls to DEEP place in Me where man's noise and man's confusion can never reach. There in that place is the deep water that refreshes your soul in ways that can never be satisfied by that which is void of My anointing and My spirit.

 

 

Come into a place of new trust, says the Father. Discard the elder brother mentality that demands and complains to get its way. I am not withholding from you. I am not denying you or turning aside from you. Come to Me. Come and climb up on My lap and bury your face in My bosom and let Me love you. I miss that, says the Father, since you decided you were all grown up. You are still My child, My little one. In My embrace, you will find freely given what others insist must be earned. That is who I am and what I do - I give you rest and in the rest is the release that fills you with My "all in all".

  FIRE BY NIGHT           

 

             "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, nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB

 

October 17th 2017 – Glenn H. Jackson

 

                                               PERFECT POSITIONING

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*       It is most certainly all about "perfect positioning" [being in the righteous place at the righteous time, doing the righteous thing] for each and every one of My precious children - in this most critical and glorious season.

 

        ...."But seek [aim at and strive after] first of all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right]".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much".... Luke 16:10a NASB

 

        ...."And He [the Father]raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus [the Messiah, the Anointed One]".... Ephesians 2:6 The Amplified Translation

 

        It is so important for every child of God to rise up in faith [and trust] to their true spiritual positioning in Christ - which is "far above" the "influence" of outward things and circumstances. It is from this position [Ephesians 2:6] alone that true Kingdom-living begins to manifest fully in the life of the believer.

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have created in us a faithful heart - hearts that are both receptive to Your Love and to the revelation of the absolute Kingdom-principles that will divinely empower us to carry out ALL that You have planned for us from before the foundations of the earth. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

 

        ...."For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His".... 2 Chronicles 16:9a NASB

Trust In My Limitless Power!

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

 

It is not what you can do, but what I can, says the LORD.

 

You may see limitations, but you are looking the wrong way.  Look up, not around.  For I AM more than able to help you.

 

I Am greater than any other power, and nothing limits me.  I do not answer to any other, for I AM the Sovereign.  Nothing hinders me, dictates to Me or stops Me.

 

Trust in My limitless power, and know that not only AM I with you, but I AM on your side to secure you and give you good success, says the LORD.

 

My Spirit lives within you by faith, says the LORD, and it is by My Spirit that all things are accomplished.

 

My Spirit is unrestrained and I am the All MIGHTY GOD in the midst of you.  As you trust in Me and believe in ME and know Me as I AM, you too will know NO LIMITS.

 

It is unbelief that brings these limits, and your faith in Me will cause the walls to come tumbling down, the valleys to be filled, the way to become clear, and the enemy that you feared will be terrified of you.

 

Come up into a higher level in Me and know that you are created to be a mighty conqueror and over comer as you soar as an eagle, far above the storm clouds in an effortless way, says the LORD.

Don’t Lay Down On This Battlefield!

By Dana Jarvis

 

 

 

 

Don’t Lay Down On This Battlefield, Don’t Shut Down In This Storm!

 

 

 

In my time of worship and prayer before the LORD tonight, He began to show me some of you on a battlefield where the smoke of the battle is intense.

 

Your armor is damaged and dented.  The enemy has shot one fiery dart after another to wound your vulnerable heart.  You have sunk to your knees at this point unsure how to continue.

 

Then the LORD began to show me some in a raging storm.

 

The thunder rocks the dark skies hovering over you.  The lightning flashes in every direction, and the rain is beating down upon you ferociously.  You feel almost numb at this point and thinking you may just give up this time.

 

If either of these scenes are the scene of your circumstance right now, God gave me these next words for you.

 

“Don’t lay down on this battlefield and don’t you shut down in this storm!”

 

You are nearly through this transition.  You are so close!  Don’t give up when you are so close to victory!

 

The sifting is almost done and the victor’s crown awaits you.  No weapon forged against you to delay, hinder, disempower, or provoke will succeed.

 

You are divinely covered from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet.  You shall not be the victim, only the Victor!

 

These circumstances will not reign over you.  Take back your control!  They will not crush you to a place of defeat!  They will not push you to a place of despair.  They will not imprison you in fear’s hostile habitation!

 

Beloved, Get back up on this battlefield, His love has made you more than a conqueror.

 

This giant before you will be slain.  You will stand victorious when the haze of this battle clears.  For those in the storm, keep moving!

 

You are sheltered under the Most High!  This storm will run out of rain, the dark clouds will dissipate, and you will see the shore of your incredible harvest.  The oil of joy for your mourning!

 

Hold on through the last of this storm!

 

Don’t lay down on this battlefield, don’t shut down in this storm!

A Prayer of Protection

By Syreeta Thomas

 

 

 

Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

 

Let me be quick to listen and slow to speak.  If I do speak, let me speak only Your Words, in Jesus’ name!

 

Forgive my immaturity and ignorance and let it not negatively affect my present or future.

 

I pull down every negative pronouncement uttered over my life and declare them null and void in Jesus’ name!

 

By the blood of Jesus Christ let every diabolical handwriting be blotted out and be superimposed with the Word and promises of Yah over me….

 

Sometimes we speak from our emotions and cast spells over ourselves and come in agreement with the enemy.  But today in the mighty name of Jesus, I cancel every word I spoke over myself, my children, my family, my loved one, my affairs.

 

Father, let them be rooted out and not germinate in the realm of the Spirit.

 

I send forth Holy germicide to destroy every negative utterance that has planted a seed in the realm of the Spirit and Holy gramoxone to destroy them.

 

Father forgive my mistakes and foolishness, I repent of them!

 

I choose this day to speak life as I partner with you in the fulfillment of my purpose and destiny in Jesus’ name.

 

Wherever, my name is being mentioned in incantations, hexes, spells, and curses, bad mind and jealous word releases, I send them back to the evil one and command their verbal, violent dealings be overturned even 100-fold in Jesus’ Christ name.

 

Father, break out the teeth of the ungodly calling up my name for evil.  Let their tongues cleave to the roof of their lips.

 

I decree and declare that my name is written in the atmosphere and people and nations submit to the anointing on my name and life.  As I flow with prophetic grace I declare that demons hear and submit as I am seated in Heavenly places with Christ, far above them in Jesus’ name.

 

My name is associated with only good things, favor, honor, respect, goodness, grace and mercy.

 

Glory to God!

 

 

 

Shalom

Issachar People Arise with Purpose!

By Prophet Phyllis Ford

 

2 Words in 1

 

 

Issachar People Arise with Purpose!

 

We will see an Issachar people arise in this hour to do three major things:

 

They will speak into the hearts of men carrying the wisdom of God in this hour that will not only reveal the manner of their next course of direction with the foreknowledge/ understanding why a particular season has come upon them.

But also how to best deal with the dilemmas of the day.  So that those who hear the word of the LORD can walk in wisdom, which includes the timing of the LORD.

 

By doing so, it will place the hearer in the best possible position of obedience in following the ways of the LORD.

 

They will also sit and confer at the table of Kings releasing and implementing resolutions in order to establish optimum Kingdom advancement.

That advancement will deal with tasks that must be set forth to deal with the coming famine, world evangelism, to build and maintain cities of refuge, and many more necessary projects for the purpose of leaning in and looking over the horizon with an eye to reforming, reordering, and remolding the future for the fulfillment of rule and reign in the earth.

 

They will carry a favor from God to step into a wealthy place not because of associations with men nor money-making strategies but because their hearts will be aligned with God’s built upon honor and integrity.

Plans will be set in order, to walk out the heavenly directive carrying the desire to cover those who are less fortunate and are temporarily unable to do it themselves.

 

The Camels are Coming: Issachar Favor

 

Issachar is the tribe that represented the knowledge of the times and seasons and what Israel ought to do.

 

The donkey that is symbolized in Issachar reveals to us that there is a recompense of the LORD coming to His people, (Hebrews 10:35)  Here is another matter to be searched out as we partake in the table of Kings.

 

His Word to the Remnant:

 

“During this time, I AM releasing a deep emotional healing.

 

I AM the lifter of your heads, I AM a bearer of your circumstances, and I will bring you through the adversities of the day.

 

For I AM able to reconcile all things as you enter into my presence.  It is a new place of forgiveness on every level.  This is a time of promotion and favor that will come from my hand.

 

For I will place my hands upon your hand so that they will grow and prosper in My way.

 

Look to me, make the necessary adjustments along this pathway, and be transformed by My strength.  There will be a removal of false things that will fall by the wayside as My strength comes upon you.

 

For it will not be found in man, but in Me.  There will be a support that will come from those who are merging their hearts and minds towards me, and I will release joy and the abundance of life and well-being upon them.”

 

Provision:

 

There will be provision but it will be for the funding of the work of the LORD.

 

It will add to many lives during this time.  Within the prophetic word given to Issachar by His father Jacob in Genesis 49:14-15.

 

Within the character of Issachar there is a deep humility that is found in the removal of fleshly things, and out of it flows wealth and reward.

 

“Issachar is a strong donkey,

 

Lying down between two burdens;

 

He saw that rest was good,

 

And that the land was pleasant;

 

He bowed his shoulder to bear a burden,

 

And became a band of slaves,”   Genesis 49:14-15 NKJV.

 

“….. of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their command….”   1 Chronicles 12:32 NKJV.

Dance and rejoice for your freedom has come.

Positive Changes & New Beginnings Ahead!

By Geraldine Coleman

 

 

God says that you have proved faithful and stood through the trying tests and fiery trials.

 

You are about to enter a new place, which will bring positive changes and new beginnings.

 

Some doors will close and end old chapters in your life.  New doors will open and begin a new chapter that will bring you to an abundant and joyous place.

 

But as He transitions you, be ready to stand strong and face the enemy who will try to bring obstacles and discouragement, because with higher levels comes bigger devils; but nothing or no one will be able to stop you from entering into your divine moment!

 

“We went through fire and through water, yet you brought us out into a place of abundance,”   Psalm 66:12.

 

“…. they confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the LORD was my stay.  He brought me forth also into a broad place; He rescued me, because He delighted in me,”   Psalm 18:18-19.

Touch Them by Your Mighty Power

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

Father, I come to you, in the Name of JESUS on behalf of those who need a tough in their bodies.

 

Touch them by your mighty power.  Let your healing Word penetrate them, as you have spoken, that you sent your WORD and healed them and delivered them from all their destruction.

 

You have come that they might have life, and I speak and decree and declare life over them now.  You have come in to give abundant life, and I pray that your life in them will be more than sufficient.

 

Strengthen them and help them with your own holy, right hand, and lift them by your love.

 

Let the works of the devil that you came to destroy be destroyed in their physical bodied, as I use the fiery sword of the LORD to cut them free and break them loose from any diabolical disease, infirmity and affliction.

 

Break them loose and cut them free, in Jesus’ Name!

 

As you paid in full the price of healing for whosoever will come to you, I pray that your healing power will invade every bone, muscle, and organ of their body.

 

Penetrate their skin and tissue.  Radiate the power of your Holy SPIRIT in their vascular and endocrine system.  Remove every toxic, fiery dart of the wicked one, and set them free.

 

We come in faith and trust in you as the Great Physician, and as you said you will not cast anyone out that comes to you, and you will not deny them any good thing, I speak healing and deliverance over them, as you become health to all their flesh, in the mighty name of JESUS.

 

Amen.  So be it.

"You Will Bask in My Glory as Spirit and Life Begin to

Fill, Heal and Restore You!"

By Steve Porter

 

 

 

"In your presence is fullness of joy..." (Psalm 16:11b)

 

I want to tell you a secret you may never have heard before. There's a special place you can go that's so sweet and more real than mere words could ever express—a place that will cause you to raise your hands and fall to your knees, where you can't help but weep with extraordinary joy. In this special place, you can bask in God's love and lie before His feet for hours on end. This is where He draws near to you and imparts spirit and life into the dark, empty places inside you. It's a rare place where the very fire of Heaven is released to work deep in the recesses of your soul.

 

In His presence, you behold Him in His beauty. His face shines upon you and you see Him as He really is—a Father so in love with His precious child that He desires to do miraculous healing work inside you.

 

"And the Lord came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth." (1 Samuel 3:10)

 

Did you get that? And the Lord came, and stood! Think about it! The Lord came and stood near Samuel and called him by name! Did you know, dear one, that the Lord wants to come and stand beside you? He wants to reveal Himself to you in a deep way through the presence of the Holy Spirit. I wish I could communicate with words what I am feeling as I write this... To think that the LORD HIMSELF would come and stand right beside me and call my name! That stunning revelation truly melts my heart!

 

"What is man, that thou art mindful of him and the son of man, that thou visitest him?" (Psalm 8:4)

 

You are always on His mind. In fact, He wants nothing more than to come and visit you heart-to-heart in the person of His gentle Holy Spirit—in that place where time means nothing and nothing else matters. Healing water flows in that special place and deep wounds are healed.

 

Perhaps you're carrying deep wounds, so deep no man could ever heal them, or maybe you're desperate for deliverance. You need bondages to break and chains to be shattered by the power of the Spirit. Or perhaps you have soul ties that only God can break once and for all. His healing presence is the place of release and freedom, where you fall at His feet and He comes to stand beside you.  

 

He Meets Us in the Secret Place

 

Once I went through a really dry season that left me really discouraged. I was even questioning my calling. I felt the prophetic voice inside me was being silenced and knew the devil was responsible. He did not want the people to hear the message of intimacy. Satan knew that if people really heard this message, it would bring a powerful visitation of the Spirit of God and they would never be the same. It was clear that satan would rather keep people in religious bondage. Every time I turned around, I could feel the enemy doing his best to silence me and it broke my heart.

 

One day, many years ago, I was driving down the road, late for an appointment. Yet, I felt the Spirit of God stirring inside me. I knew He wanted to meet with me so I obeyed, parking my car near a park, where I got out to walk across the grounds. As soon as I sat by a tree and placed my hood over my face, His presence came upon me so strongly that I could not contain myself. As I broke down in tears, I literally felt the Lord come to stand beside me. I could not see Him with my natural eyes, but I knew He stood to my right. I could not move for some time because His presence was upon me so powerfully that I couldn't stop weeping.

 

After a time, I decided I needed privacy so I returned to my vehicle and lay face forward on the back seat where His presence continued to be poured into me. I knew He had come to let me know He was with me, that He had a plan for my life, and that somehow in His time He would provide a platform for the words He had spoken into my heart. That encounter helped me through some challenging days ahead. That healing presence touched me deep in my spirit and gave me life to live another day.

 

There is a secret place where God's heart is overflowing with compassion for His weary, broken ones, eager to heal shattered lives and restore the things we lost. All He asks is that we come and ask. He never says no, for His greatest desire is to reach out and touch those broken places. In His healing presence, we discover the fullness of joy and are made whole with brand new hope and a future we can't even imagine. Embrace the secret place, dear one, and be made whole!

 

LORD, come and stand right beside me and call my name. I give You my ears that I may listen to what is in Your heart. I thank You for the secret place that is overflowing with compassion for me. I thank You that the weary and broken ones can find healing through Your manifest presence. You are eager to heal shattered lives and restore all.

 

"My Life-Giving Power"

 

Dear one, I sense this Prophetic word for you this month:

 

"It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life." (John 6:63, AMP)

 

"Don't you know how much I want to quicken your spirit with My power? I know you feel weak and are tempted to give up. But don't throw in the towel because, if you let Me, I will touch you deep in your spirit and awaken you again. I am the Life-giver and I have the power to make you live again.  

 

"You can no longer feel that life-giving power flowing through you because you've become increasingly weak from the fight. You feel like a field of burned grass that has been without water for far too long. But take heart My child, because I will breathe on you and awaken your spirit with My mighty power, quickening you so you will once again resemble lush and fertile green grass.

 

"I will impart truth to you—a divine revelation of Me—for even as a flower unfolds its petals so will My quickening words unfold truth to you and you will flourish. I am the Life-giver.

 

"I am drawing you unto myself even as I said in My Word:

 

"And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself." (John 12:32, NKJV)

 

"I will awaken your heart and soul as you give Me full control of your life. I will breathe into your spirit a new sense of desperation and hunger for no one and nothing but Me. Cry out to Me, My child, and I will open your eyes so you can see Me dwelling in you...so that you can sense My life-changing presence.

 

"I will inspire you, make you come alive. I will invigorate and stir you. I will transform you and stimulate you to greater faith. I will energize you and excite you in My quickening healing presence!

 

"I am awakening you to discern new realms of My spirit, pouring out My glory on you afresh. Just as you sit in a sunny window to let the sun warm you when you're cold, so My Spirit will warm and comfort you with My life-giving presence. You will bask in My glory as spirit and life begin to fill, heal and restore you, and you will never be the same again because all things have suddenly become new!"

Always There

By Greg Laurie

 

 

 

For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."

 

—Hebrews 13:5

 

I remember one of the first times as a young believer when I didn’t feel God’s presence. I woke up one morning and just didn’t have the great feeling I had before. And being new in the faith and not knowing the Bible very well, I thought, “I think God left me last night. What happened?”

 

When I talked to a Christian friend about it, he told me, “You’re going through a trial.”

 

“What? I’m on trial?”

 

“No, you’re going through a trial.”

 

“What’s a trial?”

 

My friend explained there are times in our lives when we don’t feel the presence of God, but He is still there. And in time I came to realize that God will allow us to go through trials.

 

For instance, you might walk outside tomorrow, and it’s an overcast day. So you say, “The sun was here yesterday. But I don’t see the sun today. I don't feel its warmth. I guess the sun must have gone away last night.”

 

No, the sun hasn’t gone away. It has been merely obscured by a cloud covering. And if you don’t believe that, then try going to the beach without wearing any sunscreen. When you return home resembling a ripe tomato, you will realize the sun was out.

 

In the same way, some people falsely conclude that when they don’t feel God, He is gone. He has disappeared. But He is there, even when you don’t feel Him. The Bible tells us in Hebrews, “For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’ ” (Hebrews 13:5).

 

It is during these times that we must walk by faith, not by feeling, because God has promised in His Word that He will be with us. That is how we know He is there.

HOLD ONTO YOUR HOPE!!

By Lana Vawser

 

 

 

In the early hours of yesterday morning as I slept I heard the song by Kristene DiMarco which I hadn’t heard for SO long.....

 

“Take courage my heart, stay steadfast my soul He’s in the waiting, He’s in the waiting. Hold onto your hope and watch your triumph unfold, He’s never failing, He’s never failing.”

 

Friends, hold onto your hope. Your triumph is about to unfold and you will see an incredible demonstration of His faithfulness.

All Is Well

By Russ Walden

 

 

The Father says today, all is well. All is well, says the Father. Even when the waves of turbulence and difficulty rock your world, know that I was there in the beginning and I am with you now. I am with you to the end, and when you are deposited on the other side of this difficulty you will look back and see that none of the things you thought were going to devastate you happened. Let that be the lesson you learn in the midst of the fiery trial. Learn that when the enemy does his worst, I will do My best, and the outcome will be assured.

 

 

I am bringing you to a sure end, says the Father. What I have promised will not fail. I am not a man that I should lie, or the son of man that I should repent. I haven't changed My mind about you. Others have changed their mind about you because they don't believe their own prophesies. They said they believed and they said they would be there for you, but they were but dust and ashes. Put your expectations on Me and not upon man. Man will fail you EVERY TIME, but I will never falter and I will never fail. For this reason and this reason alone you will come into your blessing place with your testimony intact and your victory assured.

FIRE BY NIGHT           

 

             "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, nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB

IN THE "INNER CHAMBER" THERE IS A CERTAIN IMPARTATION OF GRACE

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*       The key to the fulfillment of one's heart desire to know [gain a revelation of] My Will is the "inner chamber". For it is in that place, alone [the secret place of My Presence] that I reveal - even if, at times, it is only a glimpse at a time - My glorious Plan for each life and ministry [both individually and corporately]. Indeed, time spent in the inner chamber is the key to one entering into the fullness of the true Kingdom-living and divine prosperity [in every aspect of life and ministry] that is theirs, IN Christ.

 

        ...."[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him, by having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints [His set-apart ones]".... Ephesians 1:17-18 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.... If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him".... John 14:21,23 NASB

 

        It is very important for each and every one of us to seek the Father concerning what HE requires of us [on a daily basis] concerning our time in the "inner chamber" [which also pertains to our fellowship and reliance upon Him throughout the day]. Sometimes, it is just simply a matter of us "showing up" with no preconceived notions about what will transpire in our time in His Presence and, other times, it is simply a matter of going before Him, in faith, and trusting Him to impart to us the necessary Grace needed for the day we are facing. The most important factor [as it is in any relationship] is trust. Sometimes, in the "inner chamber" it is a very alive time and sometimes it is a time of seeming silence from on High. Either way, we must always believe [feelings or no feelings] that we received exactly what was needed for that particular time.

 

        ...."Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; In holy array, from the womb of the dawn [the "inner chamber"]".... Psalms 110:3 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that each day we can freely enter into the secret place of Your Presence. We thank You and praise You that in this precious time spent in Your Presence You impart to us the necessary Grace [divine empowerment] to carry out Your Will with pin-point accuracy on all fronts. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
