Recovery From a Shattered Heart

By Sherry Edwards Mackey

 

 

I was saved when I was 7 years old and baptized.

 

However, as I grew up, I lived a very bad life as a teen and then once I came fully to God in 1981 as an adult, I began to change.

 

I was raised pretty much Baptist, but didn’t find the depths I craved in God till 1983, when I got baptized by fire in the Holy Spirit and I was radically changed.

 

I had got connected with a friend whom I met at the base Chapel, and she would tell me things that happened in her life as a child.

 

I would just sit and listen in amazement, as she would share with me things God would do in this life NOW!

 

I didn’t know God could be so real.  Her parents are deliverance ministers in the Church of God; the one based in Cleveland TN.

 

Anyway, she introduced me to the Holy Spirit/ Ghost baptism, and to make a very long experience short, God literally showed up in my house on the third night when I fasted and prayed for the very first time, and oh my good God, did HE show up!

 

I had no idea about any of this!  I was so innocent and had no idea why a puffy white cloud showed up in my home and the presence of that weight of His glory, oh my!

 

Neither did I know what price it would cost.

 

I experienced the Shekinah and had no idea what it was, it just scared me, but WOW, did God baptize me with fire!

 

Of course, later, The LORD taught me about the Glory of The LORD when His visible presence would come in the form as a cloud in the Bible.

 

It wasn’t long after that when I was in prayer and The LORD told me he called me as a minister.  I saw that and told him, “I can’t do that! I’m a woman!

 

Well, not long after my radical experience, my husband became a very heavy weapon against me and was used by the enemy.  But true to form, God always turns everything towards our good.

 

All of those years in the refining fire I continued to say, I could never be a minister.

 

My marriage of 25 years to a pastor was made final in 2006, but the effects of that marriage were very hard and long lasting.

 

However, what was worst, was in pouring out my life to people in the Church whom I thought were my friends, who loved me, and believed in me.

 

I shared everything with them.  They knew me and I never imagined such betrayal could happen.

 

All of the times of bearing my soul were turned against me and in my rejection, bitterness took a hold of my soul.

 

Bitterness defiled me and I pulled away like a wounded animal.  I was trying to survive and when anyone who got too close, I would lash out!

 

No one understood.  Yes, they would use the scriptures and yes, the scriptures are right — but I was in no place to receive them, for my wounds were so raw, nothing soothed them.  So I resorted to isolation.

 

We must learn to ask God for a word fit for use and in the proper season…..

 

God knew all of this and He had not left me.  He was waiting on me all through the whole scenario.

 

Like Job’s friends’ had good basic instructions, with good intentions, but had no experience in that kind of suffering regardless of the weight they carried, sometimes people just need to learn to shut up and refrain from speaking or playing God, when they have no idea what you go through.

 

While we learn to sit in silence with death, trauma and suffering, it can become such a ministry experience.

 

When we identify with someone by just being there in action, only using words if necessary, can do so much more.

 

Job’s friends were wrong in attempting to correct him with open wounds.  They did not represent God in the matter.  (Read the Book of Job.)

 

Yes, satan set me up big time, and I don’t deny that I am not religious, pretending that I am some sort of perfect person.  I am not lying about it, and I believe what the Bible teaches about suffering, especially the sufferings of Jesus Christ and of Paul!

 

Yes, I had a truck wreck and had physical wounds, very deep emotional wounds, and very deep marital wounds, and very, very deep and critical ministry wounds.

 

It was during this short period of time where everything hit me all at once and it had caused me to be mortally wounded.  I couldn’t function, my whole life had been hurled into the air and when it landed, caused zillions of slivers of crystal everywhere.

 

I did my best to hide it and the best I could do was to sweep up the pieces of my shattered heart and put the dust and pieces in a little sack around my neck, because I had no idea what to do with it and it was the only place I could wear it.

 

Some wear it on a sleeve, I wore mine around my neck.

 

“And they that heard it said, who then can be saved?  And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.  Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.  And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake, Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting,”   Luke 18:26-30 KJV.

 

In my rejections, the wounds were gaping so deep that my heart was shattered into zillions of what were fine crystal glass fragments and though some had tried to minister to me, there was no one who could minister, because just as that crystal vase breaks and if we try to fix it, we end up getting cut from doing it.

 

God is the only one who can heal a shattered heart.  Yielding from that depth of shattering experience was so hard and so vast and it is so out of human control to master it.

 

For my traumas, sufferings, and death, I was so shattered that God had to heal me from the inside out.

 

So actually, pulling away was a good thing for me, because I had finally found in silence what would be my cure.

 

Yes, I found my cure, but The LORD was the only one who made it possible, and it took time.

 

When we look at our humanity, we can become overwhelmed and many times it is impossible to understand.

 

However, with God all things are possible.  Forgiveness, bitterness, grudges, and the ability it has in keeping us bound to old wounds must be yielded to the Master of our Journey.

 

I came to a place in my life where I assumed it was mastered, but I found out with shock it was not.

 

When I faced my own bitterness, un-forgiveness’, my own self-hatred and the actions it caused to myself, it was a long rocky road.

 

I had to learn walking it out; day in and day out.  Sometimes it was a faint whisper, moment by moment in pleading with God…

 

I learned that I had a very hard image of me and when me fights me, we cancel each other out.  I believe there are a lot of you out there like that.  You struggle with forgiving you.

 

I am convinced there are so many walking wounded all around us.

 

We must learn to minister from the position of death.  We die so He lives.  It is when we finally experience death to all our life experiences, then we are transformed to live in newness of life.

 

It is then that we transformed like a caterpillar to butterfly.  We are totally changed in a brand-new way!

 

I will continue learning as I grow.  Learning to pull away quickly, to regress then to progress.

 

I am daily learning to forgive, release them and let them go but realizing in many instances it is much harder is to forgive me, release me and let me go!

 

I am also seeing how The LORD is changing my desires and physical things as he is stream lining me as I am getting smaller in all sorts of ways.  Not having things that hold us down is important to The LORD.  I am certain he knows what is doing because I sure don’t!

 

I have learned to relish my silence and peace.  I am learning so many things I cannot describe that he has and is doing in me.  I desire HIM and I seek no honor or glory.

 

People online have experienced a little of who I am in God, but I find so much emphasis is on titles, instead of the death those titles bring.  I shy away from those.

 

I pray God keeps me humble, broken and lowly of heart, for I only desire his heart.  Yes, years ago God said this and that, but now, I decrease. If he wants to title something, that’s His business.

 

He is very able to do so.  However, I have learned so much in silence and in waiting to let God make room for my gift.

 

To fully know, we don’t try to figure it out.  We must just know, if He turns on the button, He can do whatever he desires to do with us.

 

Shy away from people’s admiration and quickly walk away from flattery.  Ruin is on the lips of the flatterer.

 

We must yield to time and training in silence; be still and know, and to study to be quiet and work with our own hands, these will create great strides in our lives.

 

However, how many decades do we want to wander and flounder?  As we wander through the wilderness, are we hoping to find another spring or cave experience with God?  Have we despaired of life itself?

 

Remember, God is the only one who can vindicate, validates and approves.  Remember Joseph!

 

What hit me in Alaska when I pastored my 2nd Church with my husband?  I was involved in a truck wreck, in separation and divorce, and in my mental state, as I fell so deeply into depression, I couldn’t pull myself out of it.

 

Prior to that happening, I was prideful that I was in control in my life, and you see, I had to maintain the image of a ‘together person’ in Church, when I couldn’t, and the ones I thought would never forsake me, did.

 

These were the very ones who broke bread together and were supposed to help those who have been wounded, or given up on.  But suddenly within a 3-month stint, I found myself hospitalized with a total breakdown.

 

I could not stop crying.  I cried so long I didn’t know how to shut it off.  You see, when my X walked away from God, it wasn’t just a separation in a relationship, it was also from the people of that ministry, to whom I was so close.

 

I felt this morning that “the vein” was going to burst, and it has to burst.  I won’t say much, because you my dear, may have been treated badly, even seriously!

 

God is the judge and HE will hold them accountable for every word and curse they spoke about your life.  However, you must know that when one part is bursting at the seams, it affects us all.

 

There will come a day, maybe today, when God will vindicate you publicly, and by that time you will have already been healed and well-seasoned from it all, that you will minister with such grace, mercy and compassion, for the depth of your experience makes you a deep pool, your well within you springing up to life as an artesian well!

 

God is going to thrust you into a new plane, to reach those who are unreachable, those whom no one wants…

 

I keep hearing this nursery rhyme, “There was an old woman who lived in a shoe..”  I see greatness coming up from a small place, which will yield great results in the Kingdom and benefits in boundaries, stream lining your life and ministry.

 

I’m not saying that “old woman” is a bad thing, but a Church of experience, who has realigned the fit of the old, but abounding it to so many new.

 

Children are a blessing from The LORD and you will see many Spiritual children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and great, great grandchildren!

 

We leave a heritage to our offspring!  No matter what the limitations of the shoe may seem, God said you will have what you and they need!

 

Then they too will grow out of, and go out seeking their own shoe for the fit of the Master!  The steps of the good man are ordered of The LORD!

 

 

 

In HIS Grace and Mercy,

Break out of the Box to Enter Your Destiny!

By Doug Addison

 

 

Are you truly aware of all you can accomplish with God?

 

Many of us are walking around with heavy loads of baggage.  We feel weighed down by life’s problems and the obstacles we encounter.

 

Others are simply living in tiny boxes.  We’ve put limits on what we believe we can do and have lost our sense of purpose — that feeling that we were made for something more.

 

There are “boxes” we may find ourselves in from time to time, but here are some tips to help you break out of them!

 

Break out of pain and enter joy!

I am a positive person and believe in flipping things for the good, but I admit that life can be rough.  It can be so discouraging at times that we don’t know which way is up or where to go from here.

 

As difficult as it may feel, begin to replace your cries of pain with shouts of determined, unshakeable joy!

 

It is important to not believe these things and instead replace it with the reality of God’s love and Word.

 

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus,”   1 Thessalonians 5:16–18 NIV.

 

Break out of doubt and begin believing!

If you’re still doubting your worth and whether or not you have a purpose, begin praying and decreeing verses over your life daily that remind you of who you are in God.

 

Like this one:

 

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light,”   1 Peter 2:9 NIV.

 

I recommend even making it personal: “I am a chosen person, a royal priest …”

 

God has chosen you for such a time as this.  He set you apart for this specific moment in history.

 

Break out of fear and enter perfect love!

The God who created the stars and calls them all by name … knows your name.

 

“Lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these stars, The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name,”   Isaiah 40:26 NASB.

 

Our God even knows the very number of hairs on your head.

 

“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Don’t be afraid,”   Luke 12:7 NIV.

 

So, don’t you think it’s about time you stopped playing small?  Remind yourself that the God of the universe — the God who loves you — is telling you not to be afraid!

 

“The LORD is my light and my salvation — whom shall I fear?  The LORD is the stronghold of my life — of whom shall I be afraid?”   Psalm 27:1 NIV.

 

It’s time to break out of the boxes of pain, doubt and fear and enter into your destiny!

 

 

 

Blessings,

Doug Addison

"Foresight Is The New 20/20"

By Phillip Clemons

 

 

 

Oh Wow It's a Purse

 

Walking to our car in the downtown area of our hometown one evening my wife said to me, "Look honey, it's a puppy!" (Being the dog lovers that we are, she knew we would go straight to the puppy for a quick visit.) She pointed down the sidewalk several yards. As I kept asking "Where?" She said with shock at my inability to see the puppy, "RIGHT THERE!" But as we continued getting closer, she said, "Oh wow, it's a purse." There were a couple of girls standing near their cars chatting and one of them had sat her purse on the sidewalk beside her. As you would expect, we laughed until we cried at the expense of her "somewhat" distorted vision.

 

We have gotten tons of fun out of this story and it continues to come up in conversations with the family about a puppy every time we see a purse. All in fun, of course. It truly is one of those timeless stories that never loses its ability to bring all of us a good laugh. Being the good sport she is, I have been given permission to preach and write about this at will and she too has shared the story while speaking publicly. I am actually laughing as I am writing now.

 

Needless to say, when we got closer and the lighting was better, she could see. We learned an important lesson that night: seeing things in the right light is vitally important. When we view something in the "wrong light" we can misjudge or mislabel it. We can label things and call them what they are NOT and miss what they ARE altogether. It is imperative that we see each other and circumstances that arise in the "right light."

 

What We Do Sometimes Determines How Well We See

 

That wasn't all though. After that incident revealed a weakness in her sight, my wife had to make some necessary adjustments herself. She obviously didn't want to go around calling purses puppies! She had to get corrective lenses in order to see a purse as a purse and a puppy as a puppy. She did her part and went to the doctor, ordered her glasses and contacts, and followed through with the process. She put in the time and effort necessary to be able to see clearly. She had a new understanding that if our vision is off, we can misinterpret what we see and be wildly off base with it.

 

There comes a time for all of us when adjustments could be made to clear our view to some degree. Most times, we have to do our part to illuminate our vision where it has been obscured with dark emotions and the like. This is such an important thing to note: what we do sometimes determines how well we see! There are many avenues for inner-healing and physical healing. We can investigate and allow Holy Spirit to lead us to the right path for our own personal healing process.

 

"The eyes of your spirit allow revelation-light to enter into your being. If your heart is unclouded, the light floods in" (Matthew 6:22 TPT)! As the Lord reminded me of this story, He said that this year, 2019, is the year for us to do the work and get healthy. "Beloved friend, I pray that you are prospering in every way and that you continually enjoy good health, just as your soul is prospering" (3 John 2 TPT). We must be purposeful about seeing things in the "right light" and that will come through doing what we have to do to become healthy in every way.

 

The Lord said to me, "There is a divine shift from hindsight to foresight at hand." This is a very significant time for the Body of Christ and He doesn't want us to miss what He is showing us due to a clouded view. The darkness of past hurts and trauma, left untended to, can cause our vision to be overcast and foggy.

 

Healing Healing Healing!

 

Those who have been in a hard season should be diligent to actively pursue healing this year. I encourage you to pursue physical healing, inner healing, and spiritual healing. God is revealing incredible things to fresh eyes that are able to see with clarity and an unhindered outlook. The emotions that come with trauma such as cynicism, distrust, bitterness, shame, and envy, to name a few, will be a major deterrent to our vision and we could miss having the ability to see with the accuracy that we all want.

 

This is why we must pursue healing with all the vigor and determination we have. To be clear, HOW WE SEE WILL BE IN DIRECT PROPORTION TO THE HEALING WE GET. Back to 3 John 2, in order to truly prosper and be in good health we shouldn't we be whole? To see as He sees, shouldn't we be healed from those things that cause us to "see dimly"?

 

This doesn't mean we have to wait until 2020 to begin seeing with 20/20 foresight and total clarity. It means the offer is on the table now, in 2019, for all who will it. There is a grace right now to partner with Heaven and be healed in every area and take part in ushering in the year 2020, seeing things in the light of Heaven and seeing the Kingdom increase exponentially due to the brightness!

 

As we receive the healing we need, we will feel the shift, we will know we are changed. We will be fully aware that we have stepped into a new realm of 20/20 "foresight" and begin to live in forward and not arrears. The should'ves, could'ves, and would'ves will be a thing of the past as we live with pristine vision and foresight. We will indeed be "forgetting what lies behind and pressing forward to our higher calling" (see Philippians 3:13) and become more familiar with where we are going than where we have been.

 

We will have a fresh anointing and will see, through crystal clear eyes, the path before us and be much more familiar with WHERE WE ARE GOING, not where we have been. When we do our part toward healing in our minds and emotions, our physical bodies, and our spirits, he will do far above and beyond on our behalf and those whose lives we will touch!

 

The old adage of "hindsight vision is 20/20" is being nullified. There will be many articles, books, messages, and testimonies emerging that solidity that "foresight" is the new 20/20.

The Misery of Un-confessed Sin

By Greg Laurie

 

 

           

LISTEN  

 

 

 

Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight!

—Psalm 32:1

 

For twelve months after committing adultery with Bathsheba, David fought the conviction of the Holy Spirit. He was not experiencing God’s presence as he had before. Was he still in a relationship with God? Yes. Was he in fellowship with God? No.

 

David wrote Psalm 32 in the aftermath of being confronted by God:

 

Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight! Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt, whose lives are lived in complete honesty! When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long. (verses 1–3 NLT)

 

We have seen David’s rise and his fall. And here we see how miserable David was. Psalm 32 describes the futility and misery of sin that is unconfessed. But it was time for David’s comeback—the comeback of a world changer:

 

Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone. (verse 5 NLT)

 

When your children disobey you and disappoint you, are they still your children? Yes, they are. Are they in a good relationship with you at the moment? Probably not. That is where David was. But when he was confronted, he repented of his sin.

 

The Lord waited until David was ready to come clean, and then He dispatched the prophet Nathan. He wanted an appointment with David, and he got one immediately.

 

Yes, David fell, and he fell big. But he also came back, and he came back strong. That is what we want to do. We need to admit our sin to God, because God gives second chances.

COMING FORTH AS GOLD

By Elaine Tavolacci

 

 

 

I want to share a word that I had last year because it is even more relevant today. There is a book in the bible about a man named Job. He was a blameless and upright man who had experienced a great loss in every area of his life. Although he went through a horrendous trial for some time, he did not become angry or resentful. The book of Job chapter 42:10 – 16 tells us that after Job had prayed for his friends the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before.

 

Job said during this trying time that he would come forth as gold because he knew that he didn't do anything to deserve such an injustice. He also understood that Gods plan for his life could not be thwarted or cancelled. When God gives you a promise, it will come to pass no matter what your situation is in the natural.

 

The Lord says, I hear your cry and I hear every prayer. As you call out to me in the fires of affliction, I will respond. Though the trials seem endless, I am with you through them all. Just as the refining of gold removes impurities, those things in your life that are unacceptable shall be removed. In the same way that refining gold separates the pure from the less precious metals, I am removing the dross from your life. I am releasing you into royalty which comes forth from purity. Trust me to strengthen you as you are refined in these tying times. Disregard the opinions of those who doubt my word. The opinions of others cannot negate my plans.

 

Just as Job, when you are tried you will also come forth as gold. In the same way that gold is symbolic for a covenant in a wedding band, I am establishing my covenant with you. Do not focus on your past so that you will not be delayed from advancing into your future. I will bring you through those difficult seasons and remove those things that are confining and restricting you from moving forward. Allow me to free you from all doubts and fears that are imprisoning you. As you trust me, you will be released from the restraints that are holding you in bondage.

 

Shake off the heaviness and despair. Be careful not to go back to your old ways of living and don’t allow the enemy to intimidate you by trying to steal your identity in me. The enemy could not terminate anything that I have for you as long as you do not yield to him. Love your enemies rather than be critical of them. Bless them that curse you and pray for those who despitefully use you.

 

If you listen for My voice, you will no longer be misled by the voices of unbelief. I Am the God of liberation, and as you refuse to submit to anything contrary to my word, I will deliver you from all the chaos in your life. I will release you from those things that are harming you and supply of all your needs.

 

Trust me for your healing. Trust me for your deliverance. Trust me for your financial needs. Trust me in your marriage. See yourself healed and made whole. See yourself prosperous. See yourself strong and able to stand against any adversity that comes your way. Decree and declare that you are more than a conqueror. As you acknowledge the glorious future that I have for you, your life will be transformed and you will see my plans come to pass in your life and ministry says the Lord.

 

Job 23:10-12

 

But He knows the way that I take; When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold. My foot has held fast to His steps; I have kept His way and not turned aside. I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth More than my necessary food.

 

Job 42:2

 

Job replied I know that you can do all things; no plan of Yours can be thwarted.

 

Job 42:12-17

 

Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. He also had seven sons and three daughters. And he called the name of the first Jemimah, the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-Happuch. In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers. After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations. So Job died, old and full of days.

"Overcoming Loneliness"

By Demontae Edmonds

 

 

On a recent night while in prayer, God impressed upon me to write on the subject of "Overcoming Loneliness." Often we hear Sunday messages on faith, salvation and tithing, but there is another legitimate issue people wrestle with called loneliness. Being alone does not necessarily mean that one has to be lonely. Loneliness, according to the dictionary, is a condition where a person is "affected with, characterized by, or causing a depressing feeling of being alone."

 

God does not want anyone to struggle with or be defeated by loneliness. Many people hate to have this feeling and place themselves prematurely in wrong relationships in an attempt to overcome this feeling. BIG MISTAKE! Just because you are with someone in a relationship (even a marriage) does not mean that you will not wrestle with loneliness. A second definition I found for loneliness reads, "...destitute of sympathetic or friendly companionship, intercourse, or support."

 

Many have found out the hard way that even after marriage their spouse may fall short of their expectations. This is especially true if they married a person God has not intended for them or an immature spouse. If your spouse does not try, know how to, or care about fulfilling emotional and physical needs for attention and companionship, you may STILL suffer from loneliness. Even worse, hurt, distrust, and low self-esteem, etc.. may result from a broken relationship. Add these with loneliness and you have an emotional wreck.

 

To help you avoid falling into these traps and overcoming loneliness I prayed and asked God for some points to share.

 

#1. Realize That You Are Not Alone

 

Our natural mind and the enemy (satan) often try to trick us to believe we are alone and that we are the only person dealing with certain situations (see 1 Kings 19:14). This is certainly not true. Proverbs 18:24 tells us, "...there is a friend who sticks CLOSER than a brother" (emphasis mine). This refers to God Himself. He is always watching us, with us, and for us. We are often unaware of this and He is the last person we focus on. The more you recognize and "in all your ways acknowledge Him (Proverbs 3:6)," He will be that much more real to you.

 

James 4:8 says, "Draw to God and He will draw near to you..." The more time, energy, and devotion you spend toward God in the Word, prayer, and casual conversation the more He will draw closer to you. This means He will reveal more of how close He ACTUALLY is. This may come through dreams, visions, discerning His presence, Him taking away loneliness, grief, depression, etc. Both of these acts require faith. When you first begin to confess, "God is a friend that sticks closer than a brother," you may feel nothing at first. But overtime "by faith" the reality of this truth will become more apparent in your life.

 

Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit as a "Comforter." Because God created your heart and mind He is the ONLY person who has the blueprint to them. He knows exactly when and how to comfort you and re-energize you, even when you allow yourself to get beat down, defeated, discouraged, or wrestle with loneliness.

 

#2. Discern Your God-Sent Relationships

 

We are admonished to be friendly and kind to everyone but not everyone can be our friend. There are specific people appointed by God for you to be in relationship (friendship) with. You cannot get to your destiny without them and they cannot get to theirs with you. There is a mutual dependence. God specifically chose Prince Jonathan for King David. They loved each other like brothers. God specifically chose twelve disciples to accompany Jesus. We see this throughout the Bible.

 

Many times people struggle with loneliness but neglect to trust that there are specific people God has already handpicked for their lives. When you pray, trust God will send these people into your life. Very often we miss them because they may not look, talk, or think like you. They may come from very different backgrounds and have different interests but there will be common ground that will serve for a higher purpose. People often only befriend those who are similar to themselves out of fear or ignorance but God works beyond our thinking.

 

In the book of Ruth, Ruth lost her husband and had a choice to start a new life or remain with her mother-in-law. Our minds would say, "Leave and start over, Ruth," but she chose to "cleave" to Naomi, her mother-in-law (see Ruth 1:14). After losing a spouse or leaving a bad relationship a person is often vulnerable and sensitive. Ruth chose to stay in friendship with someone whom she had known and trusted through the years. Often there is security and comfort in familiarity. The story ends with Ruth marrying the right man at the right time, and he was a gentleman and very WEALTHY! So it worked out for her.

 

Many miss friendships because of defensive walls that are up due to past hurts, fear of being rejected or judged, or they simply don't know how to be a friend themselves. Proverbs 18:24 says, "A man that has friends must show himself friendly..." This means there are some things you need to do on your end to make and maintain friendships, like not being jealous of others, not competing, showing humility, avoiding selfish actions, not being condescending, and not backbiting. Also, don't wait on the other person to initiate friendship. You must "show yourself friendly."

 

#3. Connect and Stay Connected with the Body of Christ

 

Hebrews 10:25 commands us, "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves..." Another version reads, "Don't stop meeting together..."

 

What better place to make friends than a place with people who have the common ground of Jesus Christ as God and have the same belief systems (in theory anyway). That is the way God ordained His earthly Kingdom. Often God will use someone in the Body of Christ to comfort us or meet our needs for companionship, finances, inner or outer healing, etc. No one can grow into their full spiritual potential while being disconnected from the Body of Christ.

 

#4. A Gift From God

 

Being alone is not always negative. Often it is a gift of God. Only when we are alone can we discover our true identity. Moses discovered that he was to be deliverer of Israel from Egypt when he was ALONE on the backside of the desert and encountered the burning bush. Jesus spent 40 days ALONE in the wilderness when He began to walk in the power of the Spirit and do miracles. John the Baptist was in the desert places, ALONE, until the day of his showing. Many others throughout history have discovered their potential, identity, strengths, weaknesses, life goals, and visions for the future while in their time of singleness or solitude. You can be alone but not be lonely. Enjoy your gift from God UNTIL.

"God is on the Scene and He's going to OVERFLOW Your Adversary"

By Andrew Towe

 

 

 

Recently, as I was traveling to a conference where I was one of the speakers, I began to pray. It was a lengthy drive, so I had a bit of time to fellowship with the Lord. While I prayed in the Spirit, I heard the Lord say one word to me: OVERFLOW.

 

After I checked into my hotel room, I looked up the meaning of OVERFLOW. Dictionary.com defined "Overflow" as "to flow or run over, as rivers or water; to flood" and "to inundate". I also searched in Scripture asking for a deeper revelation of exactly what the Lord was communicating to me.

 

Overflowing My Enemy!

 

When I opened my Bible, the following words leapt off the page and into my spirit: "And what He did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses, and to their chariots; how He made the water of the Red Sea to OVERFLOW them as they pursued after you, and how the Lord has destroyed them unto this day" (Deut. 11:4 emphasis mine).

 

God said, "Tell My people that I am going to overflow on their enemy just as I did to Egypt. I drowned them in the Red Sea and I will do the same to the enemy that has relentlessly been pursuing them. Generational curses are being destroyed. Financial bondages are being broken. Word curses are being reversed. Marriages and families are being restored."

 

Did you hear that? Every assignment of the enemy, which has pursued after you, is about to be decimated! This is your season of deliverance! I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, "There is judgment being dispensed against your adversary that has tried to destroy you. There is a divine reversal—a complete shift of power. The hunted is now the hunter."

 

In a vision, I saw an individual who was being terrorized. The tormentor was successful in provoking the individual to despair. However, suddenly the circumstances were reversed. This time, the victim arose with supernatural strength and utterly demolished the oppressor. God is doing that for you even at this moment! There is a reversal coming about in your life. No more running from the enemy, traumatized by fear. TODAY is your day of deliverance. God says, "Enough is enough!" The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead now lives and dwells inside of you. The Holy Spirit's supernatural power is flowing through you to defeat your enemy."

 

Step Away From the Safe Zone

 

Your adversary has taken note that you are advancing in the promises of God and he has encompassed you, breathing out his threats and lies. It's not time to retreat! No more running back to what you perceive as your "safe zone". God is with you and is going to OVERFLOW your enemy!

 

Jesus came so that you would have abundant life until it OVERFLOWS. "The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it OVERFLOWS]" (Jn. 10:10 AMP).

 

The fact that Jesus came, and you received Him as your Savior, canceled out the plot of the enemy for your life, you only need to lay claim of the work He did for you. The devil can't steal, kill or destroy your life when you lay claim to what Jesus did on the Cross! He made you more than a conqueror. You are an overcomer! Stand confidently in this truth: "...for this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil" (1 Jn. 3:8). Let Jesus have His way against your enemy. Step aside! God is coming in on your scene and He's going to OVERFLOW your adversary.

 

And not only is there an OVERFLOW to deliver you from your enemy, but I heard Him say that His OVERFLOW is going to bless you. There is an OVERFLOW of promises that are manifesting this very hour. You have crossed a threshold from the "promise" to the "manifestation".

 

Crossing the Threshold from Promises to Manifestation

 

The Prophet Joel declared: "And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall OVERFLOW with wine and oil. And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten, and the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, My great army which I sent among you" (Joel 2:24-26).

 

God's people are promised that their threshing floors shall be full of wheat. Wheat is a representation of provision. Wheat sprouts up from the soil after a time of barrenness and then grows into a mass off stalks that will feed the people throughout the year. Some of you have experienced the barren season, but now is time for the harvest. Joel said, "and the vats shall OVERFLOW with wine and oil." Wine in the Bible was associated with joy, celebration and festivity. Oil in the Scripture is referring to fresh oil or a new anointing. This is a time of supernatural harvest, joy and fresh anointing. God said that He will restore the years. When God restores something, He doesn't return it the same to you, He adds value to it.

 

Do you remember when God promised David complete recovery? It was after the Amalekites invaded his camp at Ziklag and burned it with fire and had taken captive his and his men's wives, daughters, and sons. God said to David, "Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all" (1 Sam. 30:8). God, however, did not stop with just returning their family members to them. He did exceedingly, abundantly more than David was able to think. "Then David took all the flocks and the herds they had driven before those other livestock, and said, 'This is David's spoil'" (1 Sam. 30:20). David took the spoils of the enemy. Hear me! You are not just going to experience restoration of what has been taken, but also the spoils of the enemy. God is adding value to your recovery.

 

Let me declare this over us today: God, we extend our faith to EXPECT You to OVERFLOW on our enemies with supernatural deliverance and the OVERFLOW of the manifestation of promises that You have made to us.

No More Crying In The Night

By Russ Walden

 

 

 

 

The Father says today, no more crying in the night. You are coming out of the stuck place. I am lifting your feet out of the snares and struggles that are preventing you from moving forward. The hatred and resistance holding you back is failing in its strength, and new life and vitality now flood your being for the days ahead. I am not willing for you to live without joy, says the Father, and therefore you will not be robbed of highest heart's desire or greatest dream fulfilled. Be expectant. Rejoice in anticipation for I am working in your behalf.

 

Remain then in the place of confident waiting on what I bring about in your life. Refuse to languish in sorrow or self-pity. Feeling sorry for yourself is caustic for your soul and results in all your faith running out your feet, lifeless and inert. Have faith now. Have now faith. Believing now for My deliverance. Believing now for change to come. Change is not harmful. Change is beneficial. It is possible, and it is available as you align yourself with the known truth of My word unafraid of the consequences the enemy threatens against you.

FIRE BY NIGHT

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

   

 "Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

 

         ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 

                                                     

 

                           POVERTY, DEBT AND LACK ARE "ENEMIES"

       

Words of prophecy:         

 

*       A "poor" man spiritually is one who has a "distinct" lack of revealed knowledge; a poor man "soulically" [mind,will, emotions] is one who fails to bring "every" thought captive to a perfect obedience; a poor man physically [materially] is one who has, in some way, been bound by a spirit of poverty.

 

*       I am going to "attack" debt and lack in the lives of all those who truly love [obey] Me in this hour.

 

"attack" - to set upon in a forceful, violent, hostile, or aggressive way [in this case, by God, Himself, as He moves to fulfill His Covenant of Kingdom-prosperity in this hour in the lives of all those who truly love Him];

 

        ...."He who tills his land will have plenty of food, but he who follows empty pursuits will have poverty in plenty".... Proverbs 28:19 NASB

 

        ...."For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich"....2 Corinthians 8:9 NASB

 

        Poverty and lack in any of its forms is a great tragedy, and another reason why it should be a very deep desire of every heart that loves God to see every one of His children [including themselves]blessed in the realm of Kingdom-finances - in order that many true Kingdom-ministries might be established [both spiritually and financially] to truly meet the needs [on every level]of vast numbers of those presently in captivity.  For it is certain that there is no shortage of people who are hurting - and, in order to truly help them we must NOW begin to appropriate ALL that the Father has "allocated" to us as far as carrying out His highest Kingdom-purposes.

 

"allocated" - to set apart for a particular purpose; assign to;

 

        ...."For we are God's [own] handiwork [His workmanship], recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined [planned beforehand] for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]".... Ephesians 2:10 The Amplified Translation

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that, in this hour you are moving in the lives of all those who truly love You to "smite" the enemies of poverty, debt and lack - tools of the Enemy that, up until this time, have kept many of Your children far below the fullness of their precious Kingdom-position and destiny [both individually and corporately] in Christ. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

 

"smite" - a quick, sudden decisive blow with the intent to destroy [eliminate completely];

 

        ...."The LORD shall cause thine enemies [in this case, poverty, debt and lack] that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways".... Deuteronomy 28:7 KJV

The Rapids And The Calms

By Thomas Downes

 

 

A river can have rapids, as well as calm waters.

 

At times, the waters flowing calmly is almost the same amount of water flowing in the rapids.

 

The rushing water is squeezing through a narrower pathway, as well as flowing over rocks.

 

There are times when you are going through what seem like rapid, intense events in your life, when you feel like you are really being squeezed.

 

Then you come to calm, free flowing waters.

 

The Spirit of The LORD is carrying you through the rapids, assuring you along with the flow. so that when you come to the calm, you will realize that it was He Who has been carrying you all along.

 

His Presence has never left you.

 

Trust in The LORD with all of your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in everything you do and He will direct your path.

Recognize the Traps of the Enemy

By Robin Kirby Gatto

 

 

Saints of God be careful what you give your eyes and ears to; it will be added unto you.

 

If you keep looking at things over and over that are negative in nature and although it might be true, does not mean that we need to continually watch and listen to things that are demonic assignments from hell.

 

It does not mean we are to be an ostrich with our head in the sand.

 

However, what it does mean, is that we pay attention to what we are opening ourselves to.

 

There is truth out there exposing the darkness and I have done it for many years and even bring those truths into my book, Clawing and Gnawing.

 

However, I do not major on it or study it.  I study the Word and the truth of it is added unto me, giving me knowledge of the Word.

 

We were never created to know evil, but rather to know Life!

 

Therefore, we have to heed scripture in Mark 4:24-27 giving heed to what it is that we look and listen to, knowing that whatever it might be will be added unto us.

 

Personally, I find a lot of things out there a waste of time and know that I will have to stand before God to answer to Him about what I did with my time.

 

Therefore, I desire to be productive in the work He has called me to, and being about the Father’s business.

 

Please recognize the traps of the enemy that would lure you!

 

God bless!

The Battle at the Bridge

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

I heard, “The Battle at the Bridge.”

 

“Beloved.  You have been wondering why the battle has been so fierce lately.  There has been much opposition against you, My Child.

 

It is because of your advancement and your position in Me.  You are crossing over into new territory, new victories and new blessings.

 

The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy.  He comes to discourage you and steal your hope in Me.

 

But he cannot stop you, My Warrior.  He has sent his minions to the Bridge of Glory to stop you from crossing into the Place of Greater Things.

 

But do not fear, My Love.  For I AM with you.  The battle has been won.  There are MANY more for you than against you.

 

You SHALL cross over into My Glorious plans for you; You AND your family for I leave no one behind.

 

Crossing over into new territory always involves fierce opposition from the enemy, for where you are going, he cannot follow.

 

He cannot see the new vistas ahead of you.  These are only seen with Spiritual eyes.  He has lost the Battle, Beloved.

 

You walk in My triumphal procession.  You are transitioning from Glory to greater Glory.  Keep walking by faith, My Child.

 

Your feet are secure and I AM well able to keep you from falling.  Have no fear of the evil one.  The devil is a defeated foe.  You are not alone.  Beloved.  Be strong, fear not.

 

Your God has made a way where there seems to be no way.  You are on My highway of Holiness, and only My Redeemed walk here.

 

You are on the Bridge of Hope, crossing over into NEW dimensions of Glory.”

 

“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The highway 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,”   Isaiah 35:8-9.

 

“Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go,”   Joshua 1:9.

 

“When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities [those supernatural forces of evil operating against us], He made a public example of them [exhibiting them as captives in His triumphal procession], having triumphed over them through the cross,”   Colossians 2:15.

 

“Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy to the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen,”    Jude 1:24-25.

What Is YOUR Answer?

By Celeste Dewey

 

 

The Lord Jesus says today beloved, “I AM looking for the ones who will go further, look deeper, understand more fully, feel deeper, and the one who will leave all for Me.

 

“Trust Me completely My child, that is you.  Will you go with Me, will you go for Me, will you seek to understand Me so you can be more like Me?

 

“Is it you My child?  Will you go the extra mile for Me?

 

“I AM HERE, AND I WILL HELP YOU!  You are My prize and I have gifts for you, overflowing blessings for those who will go for Me.

 

“Trust Me completely and watch your life revolutionize into the prize I know you are.  Listen closely to Me, hear Me when I call, and go for Me… Will you be one like this?

 

“I know you will, I’m believing for you to come forth as gold, refined in the furnace.

 

“Don’t give up on Me, don’t give up on yourselves…  I AM for you not against you.  JUST TRUST… AND TRUST AGAIN… AND DON’T STOP.”

 

Jesus.

 

“15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

 

16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

 

17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

 

18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.

 

 

20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?

 

21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?

 

22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me,”   John 21:15-22 (KJV).

Overcoming the Lies of the Media

By Jo Ellen Stevens

 

 

“By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked,”   Proverbs 11:11.

 

Satan is the prince of the power of the air, but the earth is the LORD’s.

 

The LORD said that our words control atmospheres around us, because we are now as the Body of Christ in authority.

 

He said to think about the Media right now, and as they repeat some things, howbeit not true, they control mindsets that continue to speak the lies, until people internalize the lie and then repeat it until it becomes a huge stronghold over the world, cities, states, etc…

 

The LORD said, “If I can get My People to begin to worship, pray, sing, shout and so on, and then they will let it continually be in their mouth in abundance, then they will overcome the lies of the enemy and the media!”

 

It is time to shout it from the housetops!

But My Hand Is Not Too Short!

By Jo Ellen Stevens

 

 

I was just watching a live video of Ivanka Trump at a business type meeting at UPS and I was looking at the comments about her.

 

Howbeit there were some good ones but many, many of them were just lewd, nasty, judgmental comments about her and her Father, the President.

 

I would honestly hate to be in their heads!  But God began to speak…

 

“Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great upon the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was altogether evil all the time,”   Genesis 6:5.

 

This happened in Noah’s day and it happened in Sodom, but when it happened in Sodom and Gomorrah, there was a man named Abraham who stood in the gap for his family.

 

It was then that God brought Abraham’s family out before judgment fell on that place, and when Noah obeyed God, it was his obedience that was counted as righteousness and God brought Noah and His family out before the flood that swallowed up the earth!

 

I hear The LORD saying;

 

“There are those who are in Christ, who walk and talk and have the mind of Christ, who will arise and stand in the gap for their families right now and who will live as I have directed them to!

 

They will live, walk and talk with Me in the earth, and as I allow the angels to come forth into the earth and begin to clean up the mess that many are making, through their thinking, I will save your families!

 

Yes, as you call out their names to Me, their names touch My Throne and I declare that these names will come up before Me and I will send forth the angels to gather them in!

 

I will not relent to bring them forth to safety in these days ahead!

 

For My covenant is strong!”

 

My Hand Is Not Too Short!

 

“Do you not think that My Hand is not too short that it cannot save?

 

No!  For My Hand is long reaching, even to those who oppose themselves!

 

It is time for you to rise up like Abraham and stand in the gap!  Stand in the secret place, where no evil will befall you!

 

This is where I will download My Plans to you and My Strategies, just as I did with Noah in his day and Abraham in his!

 

It is time to take up the whole armor of your God and put on the helmet of Salvation which is the mind of Christ, to be able to know what is truth and error in these days!

 

Stand before Me and having done all to stand, fight for your families in the power of My Might!  For it is only in My Might that you will stand!”

 

“The LORD Is on Our Side.  Is it possible to rescue victims from someone strong and cruel?

 

But the LORD has promised to fight on our side and to rescue our children from those strong and violent enemies.

 

He will make those cruel people dine on their own flesh and get drunk from drinking their own blood.

 

Then everyone will know that the LORD is our Savior; the powerful God of Israel has rescued his people,”   Isaiah 49:24-26 (CEV).

Divine Roadblocks

By Greg Laurie

 

 

           

LISTEN  

 

 

 

Late one afternoon, after his midday rest, David got out of bed and was walking on the roof of the palace. As he looked out over the city, he noticed a woman of unusual beauty taking a bath.

—2 Samuel 11:2

 

David could not have avoided the first look at Bathsheba. But he could have avoided what he did next: he immediately acted on what he saw and called for one of his servants to find out who she was. A servant told him, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite” (2 Samuel 11:3 NLT).

 

You have to give that servant credit. He knew exactly what was going on with David. Here’s an interesting thing to consider: sometimes other people have a better sense of what we’re doing than we have. The servant knew David. He knew David was a womanizer. And he knew what David saw. So he said, “She is Bathsheba . . . the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” In other words, “She’s married and you’re married, so forget about it.”

 

But David didn’t forget about it.

 

God was putting a roadblock in David’s life to keep him from sinning. And God will put roadblocks in our lives as well. Have you ever noticed that when you try to do something wrong, God doesn’t make it easy for you? He makes it difficult.

 

That’s why I think it’s so ridiculous when someone claims to have somehow “fallen into” adultery. Really? Just like that—kind of like tripping over a rug? Someone says, “Here I am in adultery. How did this happen? How did I end up in the bed of someone else? How did this happen?”

 

Did they just “fall into” the hotel room or wherever? I don’t think so. They didn’t fall into anything. They planned it. They plotted it, they executed it, and then they lied to cover it up. People don’t simply “fall into” adultery. They have to jump through a lot of hoops to end up there.

"A Prophetic Reformation is at Hand"

By Ruth Mangiacapre

 

 

I have been mediating on the changing role of the prophetic office in light of the reformation of the Church.

 

I have been equipping prophetic people for 18 years, and suddenly I found myself reevaluating all that the Lord has so graciously entrusted me to do.

 

It was as if some "boredom" had set in. I began asking, "What is my role in this season?" My focus shifted from personal prophecy to discerning the time and season in which we live in the NOW. This word was birthed as I meditated on the Scripture in Jeremiah 1, the "prophet's call" to build, root out, pull down, overthrow, build and plant. The call was to BE the voice and speak with authority over nations and kingdoms. Anyone called to the office of the prophet will have power to uproot, stamp out, destroy and upend, rebuild and plant anew.

 

Being the Voice

 

"There is health, stamina, and new found purpose and vision being released to the Baby Boomer prophets for such a beautiful task! May God's wisdom abound as we do so!"

 

Being the voice is more significant than having a voice. Oneness with the Godhead is our highest priority, and Christ IN us empowers us to KNOW His heart, and not just prophesy from the "gift". Prophets need to disengage from clamor, chaos, and choose the road less traveled for true intimacy and friendship with God. Silence will become a new norm as we ponder and reevaluate our changing role in the Body of Christ.

 

Since ALL are called to prophesy (1 Corinthians 12:31), we will not make prophesying our singular focus, but rather release the Body to do so on a greater scale. This will shift our focus to reformation of the Church and advancing the Kingdom. (Note: we will still deliver words, but they will be more authoritative, and with great power and and wisdom.)

 

Speak With Authority Over Nations and Kingdoms

 

Interestingly enough, the call to Jeremiah was a call to the nations of the earth; although he never went to the nations. How are we (as prophetic people) catalysts to shift nations? Since most prophets will not be called to travel to speak to kings, queens and presidents, our decrees and prophetic intercession release the same authoritative sound. We will support, and align with one voice as we stand behind those chosen to walk through such open doors.

 

I have been fortunate enough to travel to many nations and places. In 2013 on a trip to Nicaragua, I was given the opportunity to prophesy over the radio to the nation. I released financial increase and business ideas on the call. The nation did begin to prosper and move from a stance of poverty to increase in that season. We will see a rise in prophetic networking to stand with those who have such open doors. Prophets will move into more creative ways of releasing God's heart and His plans for the nations.

 

Through a series of dreams, I was given a mandate to pray for our nation's capital. I took a team and off we went, not knowing, what the Lord would do. I fell prostrate outside the White House on the cold concrete and said one word: mercy. Mission accomplished. Obedience and simplicity will become the new norm.

 

Discerning the Times and Seasons

 

Just as the sons of Issachar had the call to discern times and seasons, they led the children of Israel wisely and strategically (1 Chronicles 12:32).

 

Prophets will begin to move in uncommon wisdom to do the same. The secret life of the prophet holds the key to gain wisdom to empower the Body of Christ to prepare for ever changing seasons. I thank God for prophets who can skillfully articulate times and seasons. There will be an increase and expansion of this type of anointing upon the prophets as we move into our new place in the Kingdom.

 

Nurture and Equip the Generation

 

I see God raising up mothers and fathers in the prophetic movement that have such a desire to nurture and guide the next generation of rising prophetic voices. Lou Engle has shifted into such a mandate as many others are embracing and loving the rising fiery and passionate voices. My dear friend, Elizabeth Tiam-Fook, has pioneered such a movement, along with Prophets Jane and Tom Hamon, representing the generations working together. There is health, stamina, and new found purpose and vision being released to the Baby Boomer prophets for such a beautiful task! May God's wisdom abound as we do so!

 

Releasing the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord

 

Since prophets do not merely carry the message, but they themselves ARE the message, there will be such sobriety upon their lives as they walk in the fear of the Lord. As prophets have holy, fresh encounters with seeing the face and the fullness of God, He will release the Spirit of the fear of the Lord to bring repentance and expose dark places in lives for the purpose of deliverance and salvation (Isaiah 11:2).

 

Calling Watchmen Into Key Positions

 

"Prophets need to disengage from clamor, chaos, and choose the road less traveled for true intimacy and friendship with God."

 

There will be an expansion of the seer anointing upon the prophets such as having a panoramic view across regions and lands, both nationally and internationally. It will be key to align with prayer centers and regional generals of intercession to sound the alarm and release keys to decree and declare the purposes of God (Habakkuk 2:1).

 

Carrying the Justice Mantle

 

"Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne..." (Psalm 89:14). Prophets are foundational in the Kingdom, and have a keen awareness of God's heart in humane acts.

 

Since prophets have a battle cry for injustices and as there has been an increase in atrocities that are unimaginable, prophets will begin to shift their authority to reach into city and state governmental authorities for the purposes of working alongside agencies that combat human-trafficking, poverty and high crime areas. They alone cannot accomplish such, but will release wisdom to leaders, pastors, prophetic intercessors and chaplains to infiltrate evil and release Heaven.

Within the justice mantle we will see prophets being instruments to pioneer a fresh movement to bring racial reconciliation. Whenever there is a rise in tension and conflicts, there is a call to bring healing. Matt Lockett and Will Ford are two prophets who are releasing revelation concerning such systemic injustices.

 

Aligning with Angelic Hosts to Help Share the Destiny of Regions and Nations

 

Many years ago, while driving through a certain state to minister at a conference, I began weeping as I saw a huge angel hovering over a barren and oppressive land. At that moment, I discerned poverty and hopelessness. For several years, I would gather prophetic watchmen and intercessors and strategize prayer networking and team building. I could "see" the hosts of Heaven pleading for a release of His glory in many east coast states. We would take teams into Washington DC, New York City, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts to release His heart. I believe that prophets and seers will continue to work with the angelic in greater measure during this prophetic reformation.

 

Move in Uncommon Wisdom

 

Isaiah 11 is an indicator of the manifestations of Holy Spirit that would rest upon Jesus and consequently within us as well. Prophets are given authority to root out, pull down, overthrow, build and plant. Such a mandate of authority requires uncommon wisdom, which is the mind of the Lord. Prophets will be put in key positions to dismantle strongholds and release strategies to unravel powers and principalities that seek to destroy our nation, beginning in government and the government of the Church.

 

Just as the prophet was given authority within the call to be set over nations and kingdoms, the Lord has highlighted these areas that the spirit of wisdom will accomplish:

 

1. Root out racism and injustice systemically.

 

2. Bring down heavenly plans and assignments.

 

3. Destroy religious mindsets.

 

4. Throw down, release your mantle and giftedness to the next generations.

 

5. Build people, relationships and righteousness.

 

6. Plant and pioneer new innovative ideas to release Kingdom wealth.

 

Prayer

 

We thank You, Father, for being able to shift, very effortlessly, into the prophetic reformation. We align with change and make necessary adjustments in our own lives to adapt to it. Grace us with wisdom and grace to change.

Have No Fear For What Tomorrow Holds

Or Even This Day’s Challenges

By Russ Walden

 

 

The Father says today, have no fear for what tomorrow holds or even this day's challenges. The looming threats coming against you will not stand, for I am your defense and your shield against every fiery missile directed your way. Remember that your enemies are My enemies. Those who bless you will be blessed and those who curse you and speak evil against you will be execrated and removed. As the wind blows away the smoke and as wax is liquified in the flame, so the challenges and assaults of the enemy will not stand in your life. Be glad. Be very glad and rejoice, for the god of this world is fallen in defeat but you are arisen and stand upright by My hand.

 

I am a Father to the fatherless. Even when mother and father forsake you, I am right here to help and give you needed assistance. I am a righteous judge bringing fairness and adjudication to you, even when no one stands with you in your troubles. The gavel is coming down in your favor. You are not alone. Even as I set the solitary in families, so I am working in your life to bring trusted allies who will stand with you and pray with you, even in the night seasons to bring about your deliverance and salvation. Plan for a positive outcome. Set the table to receive the comrades in arms I am sending to your door. It's a new day, and the outcome in your favor is assured.

FIRE BY NIGHT

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

   

 "Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

 

         ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 

                                                     

                                                            

 

TRUE COVENANT-PROSPERITY IS ALWAYS THE DIRECT PRODUCT OF A HEART THAT IS "WHOLLY GIVEN" TO GOD

 

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

 

        ...."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

                                                       

        True Covenant prosperity [in the Kingdom] is always the direct product of a heart that is "wholly given" to the Will/Word of God - and it encompasses the spirit, soul, body and finances of each individual. In these days, the Father is preparing a people who not only seek with all of their heart to be found trusting in Him but, also, a people who are found trustworthy in every respect. Even though the refining process may have been long, the working of the Holy Spirit in us through the years will now begin to bear supernatural fruit - a supernatural fruit that will finally release the Glorious Church [both individually and corporately] into the "fullness" of her mandate and calling in the earth [on every level of existence].

 

        ...." If [when] riches increase, do not set your heart upon them".... Psalms 62:10 NASB

 

        ...."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

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who are found to be trustworthy [as You are trustworthy] in every respect. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

You Are Light!

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

“Just as I brighten the path that is ahead of you, I will brighten you,” says the LORD.

 

“You will be a BRIGHT shining light in the midst of darkness, to extinguish it all around you.  For My Light is in you!  My Light will be seen on you, and as you walk in MY light, darkness will not be able to invade you or overwhelm you or influence you!"

 

“You will be distinct!  You will be seen!  You will be sought after!  Many will see My light in you, and find refuge and safety in ME."

 

“You will make a difference in many lives, as you defeat the dark one and become a beacon of hope,” says the LORD.

 

“I have established you in My Kingdom of LIGHT,” says the LORD.

 

“I have established you in MY Kingdom of Righteousness!  I have given you MY PEACE that passes all understanding."

 

“You will stand in the light of My countenance and Glory and be filled with LIGHT and LIFE that cannot be hidden."

 

“Your purpose has been established by ME, and your righteousness is of ME, because of your trust in Me and My finished work on the cross."

 

“You are painted in My kingdom of LIGHT, founded upon Me, established in Me, and you will not be powerless, but powerful and productive."

 

“My light in you is greater than laser, more penetrating, more powerful and more impacting."

 

“YOU ARE LIGHT, and you will shine forth in My kingdom that is without end,” says the LORD.

It’s Your Call Now!

By Thomas Downes

 

 

There are those of you to whom The LORD is speaking.

 

There are those of you to whom a Word from God has been spoken.  He is still The LORD Who Sees and the God Who Knows.

 

He is still saying to you, “You have well seen; I will hasten My Word to perform it.”

 

He is hastening the Word That Is Sent with such an impeccable timing that the things in which you have been ensnared, are being blown away like dust in the wind.

 

Like the fall leaves that were laying on the dry ground, they are being lifted with such force and speed that you have to cover your face to keep from being blinded by it.

 

There is nothing that has been sent to you that is trapped by ignorance, or even by feigned lack of response.

 

You have known for such a long time that the calling has been waiting for you.  Yet you have believed that no one could ever know what you have seen or heard from The LORD.

 

But understand this now, that The LORD Who Sees and the God Who Knows Is Not Stupid.  There is coming a time of reckoning where your stance on this matter of your calling will be knocked around by those things you have kept quiet about.

 

There is no one who can stand up against what The LORD has Sent.  Not even you in your silence about these matters.

 

No flesh can stand before the living God in arrogance without any consequences.

 

Do you think you can be found wanting in the balances and still have all things weigh in your favor?

 

You have had extended to you a gift of repentance that has been collecting dust that can be swept away without you even realizing it.

 

You may have an arrogant position that says (to yourself) “it will always be there no matter what I have been doing.”   You have been deceiving yourself.

 

It is a fearsome thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.  It’s time you took a really hard look at yourself, examine yourself in the light of the Word Of The LORD, and turn away from the unclean thing, the things YOU have allowed to draw you away from the high calling of God that is in Christ Jesus.

 

The LORD is faithful to His Word whether you are faithful or not.  For every Word He sends will not fall to the ground, but will accomplish every purpose for which it is sent.

 

There is nothing, absolutely nothing that is too hard for God.

 

Now therefore seek Him while He may be found.  Call upon Him while He is near.

 

Let the wicked forsake his ways, and the unrighteous forsake his thoughts… and The LORD will abundantly pardon (Isaiah 55:7).

 

You need this. It’s your call now. Choose life.

 

“When you come to the crossroads, stand there and see:, ask for the ancient paths…”   Jeremiah 6:16.

Make God Your Strength!

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

“Your strength comes from ME!” says the LORD.

 

“Your help comes from Me, for I AM your helper!  Your wisdom and understanding that comes from Me is not earthly or sensual, but powerful and productive.

 

“You re NOT of this World and its systems.  They are far below, and I have seated you with ME in heavenly places, that is FAR above every force of darkness.

 

“It is a seat of authority,” says the LORD.

 

“You will not be the door mat or foot stool for the enemy to walk all over, abuse or use you or position you to be under him,: says the LORD.

 

“I have given you the power to tread upon the enemy, who has NO POWER or authority over you.  You are not of his kingdom of darkness, but in My Kingdom of light.

 

“You will do the treading.  You will do the destroying.  You will do the magnificent, for as you have clothed yourself in Me, clad yourself with My armor, and put ME on and use My sword and shield, you will always be a terror to the enemy and trample him underfoot, as he is NOTHING,” says the LORD.

An Urgent Dream Concerning President Donald J. Trump

By Veronika West

 

 

Watch, for the den has been prepared and the bloodthirsty lions lie in wait!

 

As I come to you today, it’s 3:00 a.m. in the morning and I have woken from a powerful dream concerning American President Donald J. Trump, where I was shown a great upheaval that is coming in the days ahead.

 

In this dream, I found myself standing in a dark dungeon type place and the smell of the air in that place is hard to describe, but it was the smell of blood and of lions, (having been brought up as a child in a wildlife conservation I know the smell of lions).

 

It is a smell so distinct that it is a smell that is unmistakable…!

 

As I stood in that dark place, my nostrils filled with the smell of (blood and acid like tones).

 

As I began to feel fear rise up within me, then suddenly I saw a bright light appear around about me and an Archangel of The LORD stood before me in the dream, and spoke to me saying, “Fear not, for you have been brought to this place for what is about to take place.”

 

As I listened, suddenly the dream shifted and I was taken high above the White House where I was shown a small open window (which faced south).

 

As I looked through the open window, I saw President Donald Trump knelt down upon his knees, looking up to heaven, and as I looked at him, I saw a great battle taking place over the land and as I watched him cry out to The LORD.

 

Suddenly I saw the Archangel Gabriel standing above him, with a flaming sword lifted high above the president’s head.  I watched as the blade of the sword touched him, as if he were being knighted.

 

Then I saw President Donald Trump stand to his feet.  Suddenly I saw a mantle fall upon him, that flowed like liquid gold.

 

The mantle of gold covered him from head to toe.  I watched as it became like a body of impenetrable armour, and the Angel of The LORD left him…!

 

Then I woke up.

 

As I woke up, my body my covered in sweat and I was praying so loudly in the Spirit that my son my awoke.

 

As I reassured my son that all was well, I began to feel a great urgency to pray for the land of America and the president.

 

As I began to cry out to The LORD, the atmosphere was heavy.  It felt as if I was walking in thick sand.

 

But as I prayed and warred in the spirit, suddenly The Spirit of God spoke to me saying, “Watch and pay attention!  Pray, pray, pray for the nation of America and for President Donald Trump, for it shall be like in the days of Daniel, when My faithful servant was thrown into the lions’ den.

 

Watch!  For they shall come together and they shall conspire with one another to destroy that which I have decreed and that which I have declared over the land and they shall look to catch him out.

 

They look to grab hold of him, to utterly destroy him, for surely I tell you, the den has been made ready and the hungry lions now lie in wait,” says The Spirit of God.

 

“Watch and pray!  Call a Fast, for they shall come together as one from the left and from the right.

 

Yes!  There will be those who shall come from the right, who shall say, “How can this be?”

 

But I tell you, many hearts will be turned cold by a strong spirit of lies and deception.

 

Yes!  Even a spirit of murder dwells in the midst of them, for they have hatched a plan and they have put together a plot to overturn and overthrow that which has been established.

 

But listen, stay vigilant in this hour!  Watch and pray!  For surely I tell you again, just as the day they threw Daniel into the lions’ den, so they shall they come together in great unity and authority in this day to throw a praying president into the den of hungry lions.

 

Tell My People, if they will look to Me and cry out to Me in this hour, I shall send My angels of protection into the midst of them.

 

Yes!  Into the storm of rising lies and false accusations and into the midst of the roaring lions, and their bloodthirsty mouths shall be shut closed, and that which was conceived in the womb of darkness shall not come to full term, but shall surely be fully aborted and brought to nothing,” says The Spirit of God.

 

“Now watch!  For I stand over My Word to perform it in this hour and in this day, for the nation of America shall see My Glory and they shall see My Hand move in mighty and yet more mysterious ways in the days ahead, for I have set My Seal upon My Servant and a Mantle of Kingship, and he shall become My Trumpet for Righteousness and Justice in the land, and no man shall touch My anointed and live!” says The Spirit of God.

 

 

 

Blessings to you all.

Open to Attacks

By Greg Laurie

 

 

           

LISTEN  

 

 

 

 

After moving from Hebron to Jerusalem, David married more concubines and wives, and they had more sons and daughters.

 

—2 Samuel 5:13

 

 

By the time David was fifty years old, he had been ruling Israel for twenty years. He had gone from victory to victory. He had distinguished himself in so many ways: man of God, skilled musician, gifted poet, wise and compassionate ruler, and a man of great courage.

 

And that’s when the devil hit him. When things are going well, that’s usually when the devil attacks. When there is no illness, when there are no unpaid bills, when there isn’t a crisis we’re facing, we may not hang on to the Lord as tightly as we once did.

 

On the other hand, when we’re going through a crisis, we’re dependent on God. Maybe it’s even one of the best times of our lives spiritually because we’ve never been closer to Christ.

 

When David was facing the giant Goliath, he was trusting in the Lord. When David was running from Saul while he hunted him down like a wild dog, he was calling out to God. When he was anointed as Israel’s king and ascended the throne, he prayed for God’s help.

 

But twenty years had gone by, and David was kicking back and taking somewhat of a spiritual vacation from God, which never works. So the devil attacked. David had set himself up for this particular attack, because in direct disobedience to God, he took concubines (see 2 Samuel 5:13).

 

God had given this command in Deuteronomy 17: “The king must not take many wives for himself, because they will turn his heart away from the Lord” (verse 17 NLT). That’s what was happening to David. His heart was slowly but surely turning away from God, and he was being consumed by lust.

 

This serves as a warning for us today: the devil will attack when we’re the most vulnerable.

"Confronting a Deaf and Dumb Spirit"

By James W. Goll

 

 

God wants you to hear clearly and declare the Word of the Lord freely. But there are forces of darkness that you must confront in order to be effective in your mission. Jesus told His disciples as recorded in Matthew 13:43, "Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear!" You are called to confront and dislodge the demonic power that hinders you from hearing the Holy Spirit and attempts to rob you of your capacity to speak clearly.

 

What is a spiritual stronghold? Ed Silvoso of Harvest Evangelism defines it as, "a mindset impregnated with hopelessness that causes us to accept as unchangeable, situations that we know are contrary to the will of God." Note that the enemy does not work haphazardly. He has schemes, plans, goals, strategies and methods to carry them out (see Ephesians 6:11; 1 John 5:18-19).

 

A Look at Ephesians 6:12 from Various Translations

 

From the New America Standard Bible: "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."

 

"Always remember, on the Cross Jesus declared, 'It is finished!'"

 

From the New International Version: "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

 

From the Living Bible Translation: "For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world."

 

From the Amplified Classic Version: "For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotism (an absolute ruler, absolute in power, a tyrant), against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere" (emphasis mine).

 

We are called to confront strongholds. We are born in the midst of a spiritual battle and we are born for battle as agents in the army of the Lord. Jesus said that He had given us "power and authority over all the power of the enemy."

 

Five Levels of Spiritual Conflict

 

• The conflict between God and satan.

• The conflict between the elect angels and the fallen angels.

• The conflict between satan and the saints.

• The conflict between satan and the unsaved.

• The conflict between the law of the mind and the law of the Spirit.

 

Six Classes of Spiritual Forces

 

Principalities/rulers (arche) – a ruler must have someone or something or somewhere over which to exercise its dominion or rule (Ephesians 1:21; 3:10; 6:12; Colossians 1:16; 2:10).

 

Authorities (exuosia) – again; "authority" demands a subordinate (Ephesians 1:21; 3:10; Colossians 1:16).

 

Powers (Dunamis) – Ephesians 1:21. In Mark 9:29, Jesus refers to a type of demon that cannot come out but by prayer and fasting. Possibly some demons are stronger and more powerful than others; hence, a hierarchy or differentiation based on spiritual strength.

 

Dominions (kuriotes) – again, "lordship/dominion" over what/whom/where? (Ephesians 1:21; Colossians 1:16.)

 

Thrones (thronoi) – used of angels only in Colossians 1:16, Psalm 22:3 and Daniel 7:9. (Photo via James Goll)

 

World rulers (kosmokrator) – used only in Ephesians 6:12.

 

Five Primary Scriptures on the Deaf and Dumb Spirit

From Isaiah 42:18-20, "Hear, you deaf; look, you blind, and see! Who is blind but My servant, and deaf like the messenger I send? Who is blind like the one in covenant with Me, blind like the servant of the LORD? You have seen many things, but you pay no attention; your ears are open, but you do not listen."

 

From Isaiah 42:21-22, "It pleased the LORD for the sake of His righteousness to make His law great and glorious. But this is a people plundered and looted, all of them trapped in pits or hidden away in prisons. They have become plunder, with no one to rescue them; they have been made loot, with no one to say, 'Send them back.'"

 

From Malachi 2:7-8, "'For the lips of a priest ought to preserve knowledge, because he is the messenger of the LORD Almighty and people seek instruction from his mouth. But you have turned from the way and by your teaching have caused many to stumble; you have violated the covenant with Levi,' says the LORD Almighty."

 

From Mark 9:17-18, "A man in the crowd answered, 'Teacher, I brought You my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked Your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.'"

 

From Luke 9:38-39, "A man in the crowd called out, 'Teacher, I beg You to look at my son, for he is my only child. A spirit seizes him and he suddenly screams; it throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth. It scarcely ever leaves him and is destroying him.'"

 

Five Characteristics of the Deaf and Dumb Spirit

 

"You are called to confront and dislodge the demonic power that hinders you from hearing the Holy Spirit and attempts to rob you of your capacity to speak clearly."

 

From my experience and research, I have found there to be at least five distinct characteristics of this deaf and dumb demonic spirit.

 

Problems with detachment – Matthew 17:15, "Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is a lunatic, and suffers sorely; for the often falls in to the fire and often into the water."

 

Falls to sleep – Luke 22:45, "And when He rose from prayer, He came to the disciples and found them sleeping from sorrow."

 

Dull of hearing – Hebrews 5:11-13, "Concerning him we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant."

 

Walks in a stupor – Romans 11:8, "...God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes to see not and ears to hear not, down to the very day."

 

Consistent struggle with doubt and unbelief – John 8:43, 47, "Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word...He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God."

 

You Can Break the Power of the Enemy

 

God always has a solution for every problem. The following are basic reminders of our Scriptural tools we must use to enforce the victory of the Cross of Jesus. Always remember, on the Cross Jesus declared, "It is finished!"

 

Let's walk in God's remedy! Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of Christ (Romans 10:17). The Lord opens my ear morning by morning (Isaiah 50:4). I will hear what the Lord will speak (Psalm 85:8). God speaks once, God speaks twice (Job 33:14). I have come to bring Good News (Luke 7:22).

 

A Closing Prayer of Exercising Authority

 

In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, I declare that Jesus has already defeated satan by His death, burial and resurrection and has stripped the devil of his powers. Jesus gave His authority over all the powers of darkness to His disciples. I am a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, by the power of the name of Jesus and by His shed Blood for me, I command that the entrenchment of the deaf and dumb spirit be dislodged. I command it to lift off of me and my household and leave now by the authority of the Word of God. I declare you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. I am free in Christ Jesus! Amen and Amen!

 

Blessings to hear and declare the Word of God with boldness!

"Living for His Will"

The Refining

Part 6A

 

By Ricci Wilson

 
 
 
Romans 12 and 13 are such important chapters in the Word of God. I would never imply that any chapter is not important—they are all important and are included in His Word to edify, train, and equip us as children of God. 


That said, Romans Chapters 12 and 13, in particular, teach us about our interaction with one another. Through these chapters, we can learn how to be the believer we were created to be. If we study them,  and really dig deep into the text, we see what the life of a person who has been refined by His Word and the Spirit of God looks like. Practically speaking, it is a person who learned to walk in love, a refined love for their fellow man that does not include romantic involvement. This is a love that looks through what we see on the outside and instead, looks at the heart and the soul of an individual. Our goal is to reach them at their core, just like the Lord did with us. He looked beyond our exterior, He looked beyond our mistakes and our sins and looked deeply into the very heart and soul of who we are, and that is the person He died for. 


The moment we accept Christ into our life, the refining process begins. There are different levels of refining available for the child of God, each depending on our call and the depth of desire we have for His work to be accomplished in us. The greater our hunger for Him to be Lord of our lives, the deeper His Spirit can work within us. The further we go into His Word, the more we spend time in prayer and the deeper the refining work can go in our lives. This process is not easy, nothing of value ever is, but through it all, He removes more and more of “us” and imparts more and more of Himself. 


As I’ve poured over these scriptures the last couple of weeks, I saw a picture of what Paul laid out for us in Romans 12 and 13. This is the progression of God’s ultimate goal for our lives. Right now, the earth is crying out for the mature sons and daughters to arise. The refining that we are walking through, the refining that works off the old man, that works through our old ways, the refining that we have been enduring, many of us for years and years, is all to bring us to this point in history. Why? Because, the earth is crying out for the manifestation of the mature sons of God to arise and come forth!“ Sons of God” refers to children of God and includes both men and women.


What does a mature son and daughter look like? Romans 12:2 says, “Be ye not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God.”


Let’s break this down a little to enhance our comprehension and therefore, our application of God’s Word: 


“Be not conformed to this world” means to “not be identified with this world.” We are called to be transformed by the renewing of our mind. This means to change from our identification with the unstable world we live in, to someone who is complete in character. How? By the “renewing of your mind.” This whole phrase means: to receive reason for the capacity of receiving spiritual truth. In other words, when we are going through the transformative work of the Lord, He is preparing us to be able to receive spiritual truths. 
 

When we first get saved, we are nowhere near ready to receive the depths of the spiritual truths available to us. However, the deeper His refining work is within the believer, the greater will be the spiritual truths or revelations we receive. It may seem difficult, but the depth of reward in no way compares to the price we pay. In the end, many would gladly lay down far more for far less than what they received. 


If we were to sit down with a person when they first get saved and tell them, “Welcome to the family of God! Here is what is going to happen on your walk with the Lord. First, He is going to strip off everything that you know. He is going to tear off the ways of the world, remove the lust of the flesh from you, and impart His Spirit within you. We are headed into some difficult years and the need for intercessors is on the rise. As such, the Lord is going to begin to prepare you so that you can handle this line of work. Basically, when He is finished, you will be a puddle on the floor, weeping and wailing on behalf of other people. The truth is, more and more new believers will be called to be intercessors and that is what an intercessor does, so, ready, set, GO!” 


We would most likely lose that person if we sat down and shared all of this with them. In fact, they might just high-tail it out of town! 


When God called me to be an intercessor, He first turned me into a puddle. He had to, in order to break down the wall of resistance I’d built. The truth is, I did not want to be an intercessor because I did not like to cry. Growing up, I was a very sensitive child—if my mom cried, I cried. If I watched Bambi, I cried—every single time! If someone suffered loss, I cried for them. I was just a very sensitive child. I see now that the Lord created me to be an intercessor, but I did not see then what I see now, nor did I even understand what an intercessor was. I went through a season where I sought to harden my heart because I just felt like this sad sap, feeling everyone’s emotions. So when you don’t understand it, especially as a teenager, you work to protect yourself and at the time, I felt that a life lived with such sensitivity would surely be a difficult one. 


As I grew up and matured, the Lord began to call me into the life of an intercessor. I learned to look past the tears to see the end goal and the purpose for those tears. Over time, He taught me spiritual truths, bringing forth the necessary revelation so I could understand the purpose of the process, regardless of how painful it was, of getting to the end goal. 


Through this process, slowly but surely, the Lord revealed the scale of my immaturity and imparted a hunger for deeper truths to be revealed, a yearning to see the nation rise up in righteousness, a deep desire to weep on behalf of the innocent, for those who could not weep for themselves, because doing so would appease the heart of God. In my love for Him, my hunger for Him, my desire to please my Lord, I was gently drawn by the Holy Spirit into the life of an intercessor, which is exactly what I had been created to do. 


So, try as I did to resist being a weeper, the Lord loved me enough to be patient with me, and while I was not ready for the spiritual truth that I would one day receive, He drew me in until I was. It’s interesting how we often don’t realize how patient our Lord is until we are on the other side of a transformation process. 


To be continued next week…


Blessings & Love,

"Movement Writers: Releasing the Sound of

the Next Worship Movement"

By Dean Mitchum

 

If you've been struggling with songwriters block it may be time to make a shift from being a songwriter to becoming a movement writer. You're called to burn like a star but you feel more like a candle. The fire of the current worship movement is slowly losing its heat and you're searching for something new.

 

"My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King;

 

My tongue is the pen of a ready writer." (Psalm 45:1 NKJV)

 

Maybe you need a new position to write from. Maybe you need a new perspective to write from. Maybe God is calling you out like a star because your flame needs a whole new source with a new kind of fuel—the fuel of a movement writer.

 

"The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, and His word was on my tongue." (2 Samuel 23:2 NKJV)

 

Movement writers write songs that cause the Church to move forward. Movement writers quicken the Spirit within the Believers causing new life and new breath, as well as awakening us to where the Church is going. We move forward as individuals and as a corporate Body – as the Church in each nation and the Church globally.

 

Some of you have felt conflicted and you have not found your home. You haven't heard the home sound yet. Once you hear it you will feel at home. Once you write it you will feel resolved. Movement writers hear the conflict between what is and what is to be. They are prophetic and write toward the future. They seek the sound of home. They write to resolve the conflict and fulfill the expectation of faith.

 

Characteristics of a Movement Writer

 

• Movement writers are awakened by new revelation. When prophets and apostles preach new messages of revelation something awakens within the songwriter and they want to put that message to music. They carry the spirit of the revelation, they don't just write it. As movement writers they don't just put that message to music, it is something that they have revelation of and the authentic authority rings true in the sound of the song.

 

• They write for more revelation. There's something incredible that happens when they write, it seems to release more revelation (Psalm 49:4). They write toward the future—even generations ahead. David demonstrated new covenant worship for future generations. His songs prophesied about Jesus. This is why Acts 15:16 declared that God was restoring the Tabernacle of David.

 

• Movement Writers burn with a musical fire to prophesy. They prophesy on instruments. They prophesy through songwriting. They prophesy according to the order of the King. The very words of their songs bring life through the voice of the Lord (1 Chronicles 25:1-3).

 

• They are compelled to cause change. David wrote his way to a new day. In the midst of a cave and hiding from Saul he sang a song of change and breakthrough (Psalm 57:8).

 

• They understand the connection between sound and movement. Sound is movement and movement causes sound. When God stirs and moves He releases new sound to go with that movement.

 

The Sound of the Third Reformation

 

Within the third global apostolic reformation movement is a worship reformation movement. That worship reformation is transitioning us from the Tabernacle of David to the Tabernacle of God. This is where the new perspective and positioning are found. The Tabernacle of God from Revelation 21:3 is the seed for writing the next movement songs. As Acts 15:16 was key to the discovery of David's tabernacle, Revelation 21:3 is the seed to discovering God's Tabernacle.

 

God is calling forth a new generation of songwriting movement writers. They are not content to write songs that only comfort, they are burning to write songs that awaken the worshipers and move the Church forward.

 

This is your next awakening. This is your next reformation. This is your next movement. Join the movement, write the movement!

I Am Disclosing To You My Ways

By Russ Walden

 

 

The Father says today, I am disclosing to you My ways. Many are those who see My acts and go on their way, none the wiser. I choose to reveal to you My ways and My thoughts that govern My purposes on the earth and in your life. Be teachable. Look through what is going on around you and not just at the surface. Shall I hide from you the thing that I bring to pass because it challenges your thinking? Truth heard the first time often produces a negative reaction. Set aside vain opinion and the convenience of your own suppositions. Let My deep call unto your deep and show you things to come.

 

My governance is upon the earth, says the Father. Men plan but I direct. Men cry out for the perfect plan, but lack of understanding is no exemption from instant obedience to the tug of My Spirit upon your heart. It is your responsibility to prepare, and if you obey according to what you do understand, I will enter into those arrangements and direct according to My fathomless judgments. How is this going to work if you don't do what I say at the moment that I speak? Think it not strange or a hard thing for all My pathways are peace, even when you don't know the end from the beginning. Just rest and trust for I am Authoring in you, and I am Finishing in you according to My will and wisdom, and in the end, you will come out like fine gold.

FIRE BY NIGHT

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

   

 "Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

 

         ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 

                                                      

 

IT IS THE ENEMY'S AIM TO KEEP GOD'S PEOPLE IN A "JUST GETTING BY" MIND-SET

 

Words of prophecy:         

 

*       Begin to "stir up" [re-fire] the gift [vision, calling and destiny] that I have placed within you. For these are the days wherein I will begin to "establish" all those who love Me in their true Kingdom-position [both spiritually and physically] and, thus, I shall unite them [through a series of divine connections] in the true spiritual environment [both individually and corporately] that was their destiny from before the foundations of the earth. Rejoice, My beloved ones, for in these most glorious days your faith [love] will be rewarded a hundred-fold - and it is certain that you will see with your eyes and hear with your ears and rejoice with your heart over those things that will now begin to overtake you [come to pass].

 

"re-fire" - restore to brilliance, as of a gem; restore a burning passion; excitement or enthusiasm;

 

        ...."I am calling up memories of your sincere and unqualified faith [the leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness].... That is why I would remind you to stir up [rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of, and keep burning] the [gracious] gift of God, [the inner fire] that is in you".... 2 Timothy 1:5a, 6a The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."You have come to the kingdom for such a time as this".... Esther 4:14b NASB

 

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

 

        There is no question that the Enemy fears the children of God entering into [appropriating] and walking in the "fullness" of their precious inheritance in Christ - which includes divine wealth and prosperity. Many in the church at large are bound by certain "religious doctrines" that had their origins in a "poverty-consciousness". Much to the Enemy's liking many have fallen for his trap [these past 2000 plus years] - a trap that would surely keep the rightful Kingdom-wealth that belongs to God's Covenant people out of their hands and in his [the Enemy's] control.

 

        It is the Enemy's aim to keep God's people in a "just getting by" mind-set. In other words, enough to get by [or less] for themselves but not enough to actually help others to any great degree. However, in this hour, these "strongholds" [mindsets rooted in a "sin-consciousness" as opposed to a "righteousness-consciousness] are being broken down in the lives of all those who are truly seeking the fullness of their true Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ and this is very bad news for the Enemy and his forces.

 

"Righteousness-consciousness"- a continual awareness of who we "actually" are in Christ;

 

        In this final hour, great Grace and Wisdom and Truth will be continually imparted in the earth through a holy people - a people who, in their complete reliance upon [and trust in]their Covenant-keeping God, will move forth in His unlimited Power to both devastate and destroy the Enemy's strongholds on every level of existence. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit in this hour will SURELY penetrate areas that, up until now, were not able to be penetrated. This is precisely why we all have gone through such and intense refining process through many years: it has ALL been for the perfect preparation that was necessary for us to walk with "both feet" firmly planted in the Kingdom

 

        ...."And ye shall know [gain a revelation of] the truth, and the truth [that revelation of the truth that enters your heart] shall make [and keep] you free".... John 8:32 KJV

 

Prayer of Proclamation

 

        Heavenly Father, we thank You and praise You that you are raising us up a "Kingdom-people" - a people who desire with ALL of our heart to enter into our true Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ. We thank You, Father, that You are continually revealing to us the reality of Who we are in Your Sight - true sons and daughters of the Most High.

 

        We thank You, also, for the great mercy and patience that You have shown us through these many years of training and refining and we proclaim that NOW we shall surely "come forth as gold" to accomplish the various Kingdom works that You have called us to - both individually and corporately. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis], in Jesus' Name. Amen.

 

        ...."But He [the Lord] knows the way I take; When He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold. My foot has held fast to His path; I have kept His way and not turned aside. I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food".... Job 23:10-12 NASB

The Anointing Is Rising!

By Dana Jarvis

 

 

HE is…

 

He is jealous for me, Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,

 

Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.

 

When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,

 

And I realize just how beautiful You are,

 

And how great Your affections are for me.

 

…. And oh, how He loves us!

Saul to Paul

 

That moment with his face in the dirt, Saul heard the voice that I believe shook every corridor of his heart.

 

He met Grace and Mercy on that dusty road.

 

That one encounter, Saul was converted to Paul.  A moment that changed his life forever!

 

We must contend in the Heavenly places for the Saul’s of this present day — those who persecute the Gospel, and its disciples.

 

There is HOPE and his name is Jesus.  That Name above all Names that can change them in an instant and reach down into the innermost part of the hearts of the prodigals.

 

Finally, let us glorify Jesus Christ, the One who sustains All things by His powerful word, and without whom we are nothing:

 

“To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy — to our amazing God, our Savior be Glory, Majesty, POWER and Authority, Now and Forever more.”

The Anointing Is Rising!

 

Paul found himself shipwrecked on an island and to make matters worse gets bit by a snake, but not just any snake.  It was a poisonous viper!

 

Those around him started forecasting his death for no one had survived its bite before. Well that record was broken, because it got shook off into the fire and Paul left unharmed.

 

The devil may be sinking his fangs into your life, but it is not going to stick.  I know it is painful, but it is not fatal.  I know it hurts, but God is going to heal it.

 

I know you been crying, but your joy is coming.  For some right now, you feel like you survived a shipwreck, got through the viper bite, and walked right into the fiery furnace.

 

You want to know why you are going through this.  It is because you are anointed!  You are a threat to hell and the devil and that puts you on his radar.  You are making him uncomfortable!

 

When the viper bit into Paul, I believe when that poison hit the anointing, it was annihilated!  The anointing went to another level!

 

The vipers of hell may be unleashed against you right now, but you are shaking them off and moving up!  You are going to another level in the anointing.

 

Your testimony just went to another level.  You got power over this poison!  There are vipers right now being destroyed because of the anointing!  They are feeling the heat of the fire on their backsides.

 

The anointing is rising!  It is increasing!  You are not expiring, you are re-firing, because what the enemy planned for your life, well he can’t make it stick!

 

You are the carriers of a poison busting no stick anointing!  Yes you was bit, but the devil couldn’t make it stick!

 

You may have went down hard, but you went down on your knees and you are getting up stronger.

 

There are some vipers being burned up right now!  The burden shall depart from your shoulders and the yoke from your neck because this yoke upon you will be destroyed by the anointing!

 

The anointing you carry is greater than anything the devil can devise against you.

 

You ARE anointed!

A Greater Harvest

By Robin Kirby Gatto

 

 

A Greater Harvest

Saints, I pray for a GREATER HARVEST in your lives and those you love, as you enter into the time of plenty and of breakthrough, knowing God has good gifts to distribute, supplying you with great grace for the needs ahead, in order to be a laborer of The LORD’s forced out into the Vineyard, to know the power and strength of The LORD OF HARVEST!   In Jesus’ Name!

 

I pray you are overcome with gratitude with every small thing, recognizing the power of grace and mercy that is operating within your life.

 

I pray you are seized with the power of the Kingdom of Heaven, knowing the goodness and supply of the Age to Come, as you seize it by force, declaring with your mouth wide open by the Spirit of Prophecy, the Testimony that Jesus Christ has wrought in your heart, containing a yoke destroying anointing!

 

I pray you see the supply of heaven poured out upon you, as The LORD of Hosts visits you with His message, knowing the greater works He has called you to, as you run your race of faith valiantly, in great hope that He Who has begun a good work will finish it!  In Jesus’ Name!

 

God bless!

God is Exposing Everything!

By Robin Kirby Gatto

 

 

 

Saints of God, The LORD God is supplying strength by Holy Spirit to walk in prudence in all that you do.

 

God is dividing between our soul and spirit, revealing the intentions of our heart, so that we know what we are meaning in all that we are saying.

 

We give meaning to EVERYTHING!

 

When our mind assigns meaning to something that then stirs up emotions, which in turn leads to a plethora of actions and reactions in your life, as you look through the lens of meaning, assigning and designating how all things and people relate to you.

 

As a result, we can operate in this life, under the lies of the enemy, not realizing that his lies have brought meaning to our soul, assigning those lies to all that we say, which in time provide strong emotions to our brain, where the fear response exists and causes us to look through the lens of fear.

 

God is exposing everything in our lives that has been operating on this lie, so that we are set free from the negative meanings of satan that we have believed, and are healed and delivered within our soul, to walk in the anointing of Liberty by the Spirit of The LORD!

 

You have what you believe!  Job feared something greatly and in time, what he feared had come upon him, because he accepted the enemy’s lie in his life, providing meaning in his time of persecution, not realizing that it was the road to his new season, to the Season of Harvest and blessing!  (See Job 3:25)

 

Job had to pass the test of seeing the enemy’s lie removed, so that his eyes could be open to see Who God really is, which then led him into his harvest! (See Job 42:5)

 

When we are purified within our soul (heart and mind) to know Who God really is, then we can walk in the goodness of His bounty and the abundance of His grace!

 

Let God do the surgical work necessary of Hebrews 4:12, and remove the layer of flesh where the enemy’s fear has operated.

 

God bless you and praying!

 

“For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, and what I dreaded has happened to me,”   Job 3:25.

 

“I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You,”   Job 42:5.

 

“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart,”   Hebrews 4:12.

 

 

 

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

This Season, Let The Chains BREAK!

By Esther Hadassah

 

 

It’s not the season for your downfall.

 

The ones openly eating with you and secretly plotting for it will be very surprised!  God wins!

 

God is going to give you laughter when the enemy has set you up for tears…. Eh!  God has the last laugh always!

 

Lack of JOY is a sign of being BOUND.  The devil hates when you have joy because that means you are STRONG.  Let the chains BREAK!

 

Stubborn Stagnation is a sign of bondage.  There is no way you can move forward if you are chained up spiritually.  Let the chains BREAK!

 

Always walk in humility especially in your winning season.  You don’t know what will happen in your next season.

 

The devil will work hard to separate you from people who should stay in your life and to keep you to the ones who shouldn’t be there.

 

I have learnt that the worst opinion about you is given by people who know very little about you.  Opinions should not stop you.

 

This season, be careful what information you share and with whom.  Guard what God is doing in your life and confuse the enemy!

 

 

 

Shalom,

Esther Hadassah

Vision of the Return of the Savior — Part 2

By Julia Afiqah Ayauf

 

 

 

Vision of the Return of the Savior,

Now As the Lord of lords and King of kings

Part Two.

 

 

 

“In order for you to take your rightful place as warrior kings, you must wage war against the enemy, wage diplomacy for My Kingdom and invest in Kingdom stewardship.

 

And in order for you to take your rightful place as priests — you must cleanse and purify yourselves from the filth of this world.

 

So much so that your holiness will rival those that were alive during the times of Ananias and Sapphira.

 

So much so that you would not die simply, because I come in amidst of you like I did in the pillar of clouds and pillar of fire when I was with My people — Yisrael/ Israel/ Jacob.

 

I did not ask you to be as holy as the High Priest in the Second Temple of David, Son of Jesse, or as holy as Moses was on Mount Sinai to see Me.

 

I AM merely asking you to seek holiness to the equivalent of the leaders during Paul’s time.

 

This seems impossible at first.  But what is impossible with man is possible with God — that is with My Hand and through My Spirit — Holy Spirit.

 

Seek Me in humility.  I have not counted against you for consuming the filth of this world, but for My Presence to come into your midst, you must consecrate yourselves from these things.

 

Read My Word and know that it is alive and well.

 

Do not dismiss the miracles I did in the lives of my prophets and apostles.  If I put them into your own very lives who are you to deny them?

 

Learn about these things in humility and ground yourself in Me. It is time that you no longer consume milk (academic/ intellectual understanding) but that you consume meat (spiritual/ revelation understanding) of the Word.

 

Things that cannot be understood merely by words, but that could be understood by the Spirit — My Holy Spirit.

 

Note that I have Seven Spirits — The Spirit of the LORD, Spirit of Wisdom, Spirit of Understanding, Spirit of Counsel, Spirit of Power/ Might, Spirit of Knowledge and the Spirit of the Fear of the LORD.

 

Note that when you understand My Word with the Spirit of Wisdom, you may have yet to comprehend with the Spirit of Understanding, that you may comprehend My Word at one level, you may have yet to fathom it with the others. Pursue My Word with My Spirit.

 

Just like My Son told His disciples to not be excited about demons submitting to them as in Luke 10:20, do not worship these miracles.

 

Do not deceive yourselves into thinking you are My Holy angels or past apostles.

 

You may wear their mantles, you may have similar gifts, but My angels and apostles are here with Me.  And they are not you.

 

Elijah is right here with Me.  Moses is right here with Me.

 

When I send the two witnesses, they will tell you details in the Old Testament so you may know who they truly are.

 

When I send angels down to earth, they will not surely tell you the phrase “I don’t know”.

 

If they do, it is unbiblical and false.  Look at examples in My Word.

 

Has anyone of them ever answered, “I don’t know?”

 

In the same way, My Prophets of old will also tell you details of their stories so you may know that they are prophets of old.

 

Beware of false christs and false prophets.  Beware even more of the son of perdition — the second beast and the false prophet — the first beast.

 

My Precious Son is right now with ME and at My Right Hand.  He is ready to go at a moment’s notice.

 

Everything that has been prepared for you, My Children are also ready, including your places of abode, your wedding garments, your crowns, and your places at the Great Wedding of the Lamb, although this is after the Millennium Kingdom of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

 

Be prepared and consecrate yourself unto holiness by the Blood of the Lamb and sanctification through the Holy Spirit.

 

Though you have your earthly duties, give ME your complete surrender and abandon so I may use you the way I made you for such a time as this.

 

Finally, forgive one another, pray for one another, bear each other’s burdens and most important of all love one another just as My Son has loved you.

 

Intercede and contend for another and pursue wisdom, as the Fear of the LORD is the beginning wisdom.  And when you do what is right, do what is right because it is right.

 

Do not do it because you hope the person will do the same for you.  If you do, your reward will only be the reciprocation you got from the person.

 

But if they don’t or can’t (let ME judge those), then you will be rewarded according to Matthew 5:46 and Luke 6:32.”

 

“However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven,”   Luke 10:20.

 

“If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?”   Matthew 5:46-47.

 

“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?  Even sinners love those who love them,”   Luke 6:32.

Vision of the Return of the Savior!

By Julia Afiqah Ayauf

 

 

 

Vision of the Return of the Savior,

Now As the King of Kings and Lord of Lords

Part One

 

 

 

I saw a vision of lush scenery with a pink and lavender sky, green hills and meadows and some trees.

 

The atmosphere of the scene is perfect and the air was cool, crisp and fresh with the sweet smelling aroma of fresh grass, flowers and nature.

 

In the periphery of my view as I look into this scenery, I saw a fiery outline of a scroll begin to take shape.

 

Then the writings on the scroll began to appear in fiery script, in a language that I did not understand or know.

 

I asked the LORD, “LORD, what is written on this scroll?”

 

The LORD replied….

 

“It is written, that the time of My Son’s Return is nigh and My children must prepare for His Coming and for the Wedding of the Lamb.

 

They must put their houses in order — that is their spiritual homes.

 

They must be purified and consecrate themselves, even to the point of abstaining from consuming the filth of this earth.

 

If they do not want legalism in this matter, they must seek Me in order to determine the type of abstinence that I require out of each one of them, not so they could be saved, as they have already been redeemed and saved, but so My glory may manifest more fully into their lives.

 

The time has come when the enemy who has only been throwing spiritual arrows and darts will now begin to attack with increased warfare unleashed by the demonic sacrifice of millions within the womb, from which the grace of God, My grace cannot contain any longer due to Justice and Righteousness.

 

My grace have poured onto the earth since Roe vs. Wade and other abortions done throughout the world, but enough is enough.

 

Millions have been sacrificed for selfishness and convenience sake and millions of My plans and destinies and what I have made sacred have been mercilessly destroyed without any consideration, compassion, mercy, reverence or love that they the godless boast to have and zealously demand of others.

 

As the day of My Son’s return draws nearer and nearer and closer and closer, godlessness will be unleashed to it’s fuller and fuller capacity by the enemy and his forces to rebel against Me and My Kingdom.

 

When the enemy attacks you with darts and arrows today, how are you faring?

 

Is it well with you?

 

Have you rendered the devil useless?

 

What do you think will happen if and when the enemy strikes you with an even greater warfare?

 

If the enemy attacks you spiritually in such a way that is equivalent to an ICBM, do you have an Iron Dome ready?

 

Or are you just going to attack him and his forces back with arrows and darts that you have?

 

How will you contend against your enemy?

 

Do not lose hope.  I AM making you more than conquerors.  I desire to make you victorious.  I want you to desire to overcome.

 

If you do not overcome, how will you be called victorious?

 

If you do not battle and wage war against your spiritual enemies what exactly have you conquered?

 

If you do not run, what race did you win on?

 

If you only had a cakewalk, why do you speak of your race as if you had just won a Cross-Fit race?

 

The time has come for ME to reveal My glory to the nations and the multitude in the Last Days as I did during the Days of the Old Testament and the New Testament.

 

And now I AM calling you to take your rightful place as watchmen and watchwomen, intercessors, prayer warriors, seers, prophets, apostles, evangelists, stewards, ambassadors and ultimately as My kings and priests unto the Lord – My Son.

 

You are already Mine.  Those of you who gave your lives to Jesus and follow My Son according to John 1:12 you are already Mine.

 

I have already redeemed you through the Blood of My own and only begotten Son, according to John 3:16.

 

He, My Son and the Lamb Who Was Slain already died for you and you must rest in the assurance of your salvation for you are redeemed.

 

Do not be motivated to earn your salvation but be motivated to work out your salvation with fear and trembling according to Philippians 2:12.

 

Know that this is the time for to consider your place as My heirs and as My sons and daughters that creation has longed for to be revealed according to Romans 8:19.”

 

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name,”   John 1:12.

 

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life,”   John 3:16.

 

“Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy,”   Philippians 2:1.

 

“For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God,”   Romans 8:19.

Are You Ready to Cross Over the Bridge of Life?

By Elizabeth Marie

 

 

Dream:

 

In the distance, I saw a VERY long foot bridge, that I somehow knew needed to be crossed.

 

The bridge was very rickety, and had many holes that had been patched up poorly.  I then saw people that were attempting to cross this bridge, but I could tell that they were very slow and hesitant with every step….. fearing greatly that they might fall through one of the poorly covered holes.

 

Then it was my turn to start crossing this daunting bridge. Instead of being meticulously careful of where I was putting my feet, and feeling no anxiety or fear, I just starting walking quickly, not worrying or stressing about falling through.

 

I then received this overwhelming, strong confidence, and had FULL ASSURANCE that I was to make it to the other side without any problems.

 

My walking almost turned into running, as I seemed to glide to the other side with much ease.

 

I was amazed at how quickly and efficiently I could do this, and felt that there was someone helping me somehow.

 

End of dream….

 

As the dream ended, and I started to awake, I heard singing all around me, and I recognized it as the hymn,  ‘Blesses assurance, Jesus is mine!’

 

 

 

Interpretation:

 

In this dream, there were two kinds of people.

 

The first kind were the ones that were walking slowly across the bridge, trying to avoid the holes.

 

They had no help, and were trusting in only themselves to make it over.  They were anxious and stressed, not knowing if they were going to get to the other side.

 

I represented the other kind of people in this dream, which are the true believers in JESUS CHRIST.

 

They have FULL ASSURANCE in their walk, knowing that they are not alone in the journey.

 

They rely on the HOLY SPIRIT to help them cross this Bridge of Life. Instead of letting fear, stress and anxiety paralyze them, they trust in the leading and guiding of the HOLY SPIRIT, so they can avoid the holes or traps that try to ensnare them. They have FAITH that they were going to make it to the other side!

 

Right now, with all the pending doom surrounding us, we need REMINDERS to help us RENEW our FAITH in JESUS, by trusting and relying on HIM despite what is happening in the physical realm.

 

We need to have FULL ASSURANCE that HE is there with us, and that we need not worry. HE IS FAITHFUL to accomplish in us all that is necessary to enter into HIS KINGDOM!

 

As we focus our eyes on HIM, we can KNOW that HE Is with us, as we cross the BRIDGE OF LIFE to the other side, where HE is waiting for us.

 

“We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith, because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame.  Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne,”   Hebrew 12:2.

 

”Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see,”   Hebrews 11:1.

 

Message:

 

While praying over this dream, I received this message:

 

“Your footsteps are ordained of ME… every step I see.

 

There is not place that you go that I don’t already know of.  I will lead you down the narrow paths of life that few choose to go.

 

There is a bridge that all must cross.  It is the bridge to life… and to death.  On the other side is your destiny.

 

Some will make it across the bridge to eternal bliss.  While others will fall off into eternal darkness.

 

It is a matter of choices, so chose wisely who you will serve today!

 

Your footsteps are consecrated and holy.  Take your sandals off and walk with ME on HOLY ground.

 

Here we will seek the FATHER together on bended knee.

 

The time has come to put away foolish things, children, and to participate in the mature things of the SPIRIT.

 

Walk no more in the vain things of life.  Trample the lion and the cobra under your feet.

 

Dedicate yourself to ME and I will watch over you, MY beloveds!

 

Your heavenly friend,

 

JESUS.”

 

“Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water,”   Hebrews 10:22.

 

”Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see,”   Hebrews 11:1.

 

“Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet,”   Psalms 91:13.

Don’t Fear the Giants

By Greg Laurie

 

 

           

LISTEN 

 

 

 

 

“The LORD who rescued me from the claws of the lion and the bear will rescue me from this Philistine!”

—1 Samuel 17:37

 

Imagine for a moment that you’re David, out in the field tending your flock, when suddenly you’re brought in to meet the prophet Samuel. He pours oil on your head and says you’re the next king of Israel. You receive no crown. You find no chariot with Secret Service protection waiting. So you go back to your flock of sheep, and everything goes back to normal.

 

I wonder if a lot of the psalms David wrote came to him as he was tending his sheep. I wonder if maybe one day he started thinking about how dependent those sheep were on him—how he even needed to take them to the stream to drink. And maybe this came to mind: “The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams.”

 

Then one day David’s father sent him to visit his brothers on the front lines with Israel’s army. The Israelites were facing off with the Philistines in the Valley of Elah, where an oversized man named Goliath was taunting Israel’s army every day. Everyone was terrified, including David’s brothers and King Saul.

 

David asked, “Who is this pagan Philistine anyway, that he is allowed to defy the armies of the living God?” Then he told Saul, “Don’t worry about this Philistine. I’ll go fight him! . . . The Lord who rescued me from the claws of the lion and the bear will rescue me from this Philistine!” (1 Samuel 17:26, 32, 37 NLT).

 

Fast-forward to the end of the story, and we find David taking Goliath down with a sling and a stone. David was looking at his giant in the light of God. He wasn’t looking at God in the light of his giant.

"Stand Firm in Your Season of Faith! A New Day is Dawning"

By Kevin Basconi

 

 

I want to speak prophetically in this article. Currently many people in the Body of Christ are going through difficult seasons. It is possible that their faith is being challenged. It may seem like you, personally, have been in a long cold season with your walk with the Lord. Would you please consider as you read this prophetic article that perhaps what you are experiencing is coming from the Lord and not the enemy?

 

Let's start with the life, ministry, and teachings of the Apostle Paul. Certainly Paul was not stranger to operating in the supernatural and dealing with opposition and oppression!

 

The Mysteries of God and the Seasons of Silence

 

1 Corinthians 4:1, "Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God."

 

What are the mysteries of the Lord? In Strong's Greek Concordance, reference 3466, it tells us the word for mystery is the Greek word "musterion," pronounced "moos-tay'-ree-on." This word is derived from the root word "muo," meaning "to shut the mouth." It is a secret or "mystery" through the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites.

 

"The season of the testing and of the trying of your faith shall surely pass and all things will become new!"

 

Along this road that we call "faith," or "the Christian walk," I have discovered that we all come to and must walk through differing and sometimes difficult seasons of God. Perhaps you are in such a season now? If not, then praise the Lord! Some of the mysteries of God are the seasons of silence. In these seasons of silence, the Lord seems to be hidden and we may find it hard to connect with the Spirit of God. He is not speaking to us clearly.

 

As the word "musterion" implies, the Lord shuts His mouth! He does not seem to be leading us as He once did. In fact, it may seem as if the Lord is a million miles away. We have entered into such a season where God may be difficult to discern, and it may be hard for you to have communion with the Lord. If this is the case, don't worry! We need to remember that there are seasons of grace as well. We can learn more about this Kingdom principle in Ecclesiastes.

 

Ecclesiastes 3:1;7-8: "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under Heaven...a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace."

 

There is a time when the Lord allows us to enter into "a time to keep silence." He is silent at times (seasons). It is Scriptural. During these times, it seems that the Lord may allow our faith to be tested. In these seasons of hiddenness, our identity is often brought into question. (These questions can be soulish in nature or they can be a device of the enemy.) We may be going through or entering into a season of change. It could be a new job, a geographical move, or it could even be a contemplation of retirement. The truth is that these seasons of faith can be challenging and difficult in both the natural and in the spirit.

 

Recently I have been resting in the Lord, and I have come to believe—or one might say, come to the revelation—that there are many people who have entered into these kinds of seasons of silence. This started as I waited upon the Lord in prayer whilst in Jerusalem for eight days and nights in November of 2018.

 

Allow me to reassure you in this: the Lord will never forsake you and He will never leave you (Hebrews 13:5). The Lord is faithful, and He is just. However, there are times when He can be silent and it may seem that He is not speaking or revealing Himself to you. Some call these times "seasons of hiddenness." Seasons of faith such as these have even been called "the dark night of the soul" by others. Usually when it seems that you are living on the dark side of the moon, in reality, God is actually very near. God may allow us to be tested in seasons like these. And as we see in 1 Corinthians, the Lord is seeking faithful friends.

 

1 Corinthians 4:1, "Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful. But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by a human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself. For I know nothing against myself, yet I am not justified by this; but He who judges me is the Lord."

 

Perhaps these seasons of darkness and seasons when it seems that our faith is being tried and tested are not emanating from the enemy. Perhaps the Lord is being silent and testing our faith to see if we will be faithful.

 

Testing 1, 2, 3

 

Yes, I know that there are many who believe and preach that we can be eternally blessed and that we never need to experience pain, sickness, or heartbreak. However, bad things happen to good people. Why? Because God never promised you and me that we would have eternal blessings without measure on this side of eternity. There are seasons for these things (Ecclesiastes 3). Sure, some ministers preach that we can live to be one-hundred and twenty or that we can live in perfect health and prosperity. There is a lot of merit in those messages, and I have preached them myself. It has been said that into each life a little rain must fall. We are entering into such a season, and the Spirit of the living and loving God is testing His people.

 

Sometimes these seasons present themselves as a "crisis of faith." Someone we love (or we, ourselves) enters into a season of trial. It may be sickness or infirmity, or it may be a setback in one way or another. And we do not understand how our loving and gentle friend, Jesus, could allow these things to unfold in our lives. Why do we feel and believe this way? Perhaps we misunderstand the Scriptures, or maybe, simply, we are getting a little older. Perhaps we have done all the right things: we have tithed, we have helped the poor, we have read the Word and we have believed the Word. We have read the Scriptures and we have worshiped the Lord.

 

Yet, it seems that the Lord is million miles away and it is difficult to hear His voice. It seems to become harder to feel His amazing touch each day. We need a healing, a miracle or a breakthrough and it does not come. Perhaps we have entered into a season of silence or a season of hiddenness. Though you may think that you are experiencing a crisis of faith, you are not. I want to encourage you that God is just playing hide and seek with you. He is seeing if you will stay true to the faith (be faithful), as you go through this season.

 

Just as paste is squeezed out from the tube when you put pressure on the toothpaste, the Spirit may put gentle pressure on us through a season of silence, then what is really in us will come out! Many people are experiencing this kind of gentle pressure at this hour. The Lord is testing our faith (James 1:3). Just because you can't seem to connect with the Lord in this season does not mean that you are backslidden or out of communion with God. Just as the sun will arise tomorrow, this season will pass.

 

Purpose in your heart to make a stand. Stand firm in the Lord and stay in the Word of God. He has promised you in Psalm 89:28, "My mercy I will keep for him forever, and My covenant shall stand firm with him." Again, God will never forsake you and He shall never leave you, no matter what you may be feeling (or not feeling) right now. Be encouraged! You are not alone! The Lord never changes. His love for you is eternal, and His "yes" to you is yes and amen.

 

The Enemy Has Shown His Hand

 

Generally, in these seasons of faith you will have opposition. In fact, the opposition or the oppression of the enemy may seem unbearable! If that is the case, the enemy has just shown or tipped his hand (or deceptive plans) to you. Because deceiving you (in your mind) in one way or the other is all that he can do. The accuser will constantly call into question your faith and the goodness and character of God. The enemy will try to get you to agree with him as he questions the Lord's goodness and faithfulness. Don't go there! If you are in such a season, rejoice because the end of the valley of darkness is actually very near, and the sunshine of a new day and new season are just around the corner! God is about to do a new thing in your life and circumstances (Isaiah 43:19).

 

Stay faithful! If the enemy is seeking to question your identity in the Lord, know that you are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. Renew your efforts to discover who you are in Christ through studying the Scriptures, and look for His promises to you from the Word! Look at this example from 1 Peter 1:6-9:

 

"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls."

 

Trust in the Lord and allow Him to reveal Himself as faithful and true as the Spirit leads you into a new season of faith and grace (Revelation 21:5; 22:6). Of course, sin can cause us to be separated from the Lord (Hebrews 7:26), so check yourself in that. However, remember that we still we have a strong, unchanging promise of unity with the Lord, no matter how we may feel. In Romans we read that Christ died for us, and furthermore, even if we cannot discern it, know that He (the Lord Jesus) is interceding for each of us right now!

 

Romans 8:34-39: "Who is He who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: 'For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.' Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

 

Just think about that! Nothing has the power or authority to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Yet, the enemy seeks to deceive or blind our minds to turn us from this amazing grace and truth of the Gospel. The enemy seeks to rob our faith. Hold on to your heart and keep your faith at all costs. How can we believe that we are immune to trials? Trials and tribulations are just an aspect of, one might say, a season of faith. The Apostle Paul experienced trials and tribulations, yet he was surely victorious (2 Corinthians 2:4;14)!

 

Immune to Trials?

 

"Just as the sun will arise tomorrow, this season will pass. Purpose in your heart to make a stand. Stand firm in the Lord and stay in the Word of God."

 

In this next section I will uncover some of the enemy's most effective snares to blind your eyes and his methods to rob your faith. What of Job or Elijah, Noah, Abram, Paul and so many others? They were pressed, tried, and at times seemed to be hidden from the Lord, yet they did not lose their faith. They did not lose heart, and neither should we lose heart. God found them faithful, just as God will find you faithful in this season. The following passage in 2 Corinthians is a wonderful picture of keeping the faith in the various seasons of grace and in seasons of faith.

 

2 Corinthians 4:1-3, "Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the Word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. But even if our Gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing."

 

Why are these people perishing? We see in the next Scripture, 2 Corinthians 4:4, it says, "whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them."

 

Now, continuing with 2 Corinthians 4:5-6 it says, "For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus' sake. For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."

 

2 Corinthians 4:7-12 says, "But we have this treasure (deposited gift, wealth—given of or by God) in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power (Dunamis miracle-working power) may be of God and not of us. We are hard pressed (crowded or afflicted to suffer tribulation) on every side, yet not crushed (hemmed in or pressed by an enemy; perplexed-mentally trapped or ambushed); we are perplexed, but not in despair (utterly lost or despondent); persecuted (pursued, followed, or hunted), but not forsaken (left behind, deserted, or left to die);

 

struck down (cast down or disregarded [it is interesting to note that the enemy will often seek to cast certain dispersions upon you as an individual]) but not destroyed (fully destroyed, as in perishing [this could also be referring to the loss of your faith and your soul])—always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then death is working in us, but life in you" (emphasis added).

 

A New Day and a New Season

 

We need to understand that even in these seasons when we are seemingly hidden and dwelling on the dark side of the moon or walking through the valley of the shadow of death, God is with us. God is with you no matter what it may look like or feel like. The Lord is there (Ezekiel 48:35). We must walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).

 

Allow me to assure you that these seasons of faith are passing us one by one. A new day is about to dawn for you in the same imperceptible way as the spring is about to emerge in the natural. Song of Solomon 2:10-13 says it this way, "My beloved spoke, and said to me: 'Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!'"

 

Persecuted for Righteousness' Sake

 

The darkness of the night and the trials of your season of faith will come to an end readily. The season of the testing and of the trying of your faith shall surely pass and all things will become new! If the Lord walked through these times, then we can also expect to have our faith tried. Jesus said in Matthew 5:10-12, "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in Heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

 

Jesus also mentioned this in John 15:20, "Remember the word that I said to you, 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My Word, they will keep yours also."

 

In fact, the Lord Jesus described His ministry as trials! Imagine that! Here it is in Luke 22:28, "But you are those who have continued with Me in My trials." Jesus also mentions that there are great rewards for those who persevere through the trials and through the various seasons of faith. Here is that promise in Luke 22:29-30, "And I bestow upon you a Kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one upon Me, that you may eat and drink at My table in My Kingdom..."

 

In the end, God's grace is sufficient for you (2 Corinthians 12:9)!

 

Prayer of the Overcomer

 

Dear Father, thank You for seasons of faith. Today, Lord, I purpose in my heart to persevere and to overcome the seasons of hiddenness and the times where You seem to be a million miles away from me. Lord, no matter what I see or what I feel, I make a conscious decision to trust You and to believe You! I thank You, Lord, that the seasons of faith are shifting and that I am entering to a time of sunshine and communion with You and the precious Holy Spirit. Though I may be pressed, I will not lose heart; I will not lose my faith in You, Lord. I know that You are for me and that even now You are praying and interceding for me to break through into a new season.

 

Lord, I may be pressed and afflicted everywhere I turn, but I am not defeated, I am not crushed. Lord, I may not understand what You are doing in my life in this season, but I purpose in my heart to trust You and keep my faith in You, Lord Jesus. Though I may be perplexed, I will not worry and I will not fear because I choose to trust You, Lord. I will not despair, I will rejoice in You, Lord. And I thank You that You have a future and a hope for me and my life right now! Thank you, Lord, that You will never forsake me or leave behind. No matter what it looks like, I will not be struck down and I will not be destroyed for You are with me now! In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen!

The Father says today, this is your day to call for a needed crop failure. The harsh decisions of the past, the words spoken in haste fester in the ground to bring their bitter harvest in your life. These things need not be. You are a farmer-a seed sower-by the words that proceed out of your mouth. You are not subject to the seed, but the seed is subject to you. I have called you and ordained you by the work of the Cross to be a lord over your own harvest. What does that mean to you? It means you can call for crop failure. That is what repentance is all about. Repentance is the primary work of the first principles of Christ. Take advantage of the opportunity I extend to you this day to repent of hasty words and bitter judgments.

 

I call upon you this day to forgive, release and bless. Forgive those who have occasioned offense in your life. Release them from expectations that you yourself have not lived up to. Bless them and confer upon them the benediction of heaven that you want to see in your own life. Refuse to be small-minded. Refuse to walk in rejection, anger, and opinion. This is a new day. This is growing up time. The root of bitterness never languishes, yea, it thrives until it dominates every area and every relationship of your life. It is a plant you cannot afford to allow to encumber the precious ground I have given you. Let it go. Forget the past. Extend to others the compassion that you desire to receive of My hand and great will be your joy and great will be your own release as the chains fall off your hands and your feet, and once more you will walk as of old in the paths of peace and the path of righteousness that I have destined for you.

FIRE BY NIGHT

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

   

 "Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

 

         ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 

                                                     

                                                           

 

                      THESE ARE THE DAYS OF "PERFECT FULFILLMENT"

 

Words of prophecy:         

 

*       The place called DONE is a place of absolute rest - that absolute rest being the spontaneous fruit of an absolute faith and trust in My Word.

 

"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.

 

        "If because of the sabbath [rest], you turn your foot from doing your OWN pleasure on My holy day, and call the sabbath a delight, the holy day of the LORD honorable, and honor it, desisting from your OWN ways, from seeking your OWN pleasure and speaking your OWN word, THEN you will take delight in the LORD, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth [Ephesians 2:6]".... Isaiah 58:13-14a NASB

 

        One of the key aspects of our call to walk in faith [an absolute trust in God] is gaining a deep "revelation" of "the place called Done" [the finished work of Christ - and who we are, in Him] and, then, continuing to bring EVERY thought captive to that spiritual reality [refusing to be moved by any "outward" circumstances or the "ploys" of the Enemy] - KNOWING [gaining a deep revelation of the spiritual reality] that as we continue to do so it will SURELY lead us into the Father's highest Will and purpose for our lives - and, thus, the "perfect fulfillment" of our precious Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ.

 

        ...."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 by His [the Father's] doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption".... 1 Corinthians 1:30 NASB

 

        ...."The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God. And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory".... Romans 8:16-17 The Amplified Translation

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that these are the days of "perfect fulfillment" [and entrance into the fullness of destiny] in the midst of all those who are truly seeking first the establishment of Your Kingdom in the earth. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

Recipes Rendered!

By Priscilla Van Sutphin

 

 

“You’ve heard the term “recipe for disaster”?

 

Well the events of these days have brought about just that!

 

I said to love your neighbor as yourself.  But whole nations are cursed because of people cursing one another.  I said to bless those who curse you!

 

Your nation has turned aside from many of the principles of My Kingdom, even within the Church that is called by My Name.

 

I AM not blind nor am I deaf to everything that is going on behind closed walls.  I have broken down the walls of hindrances to expose the underbelly of the beast, not just so that you could be angry, or disgusted, but so that you would cry out and PRAY to Me, the Author and Finisher of your faith!

 

I said in My Word, “When I return will I find faith on earth?”  But I see many too busy and too distracted to use their time well.

 

I know life is very busy for you when you have a family.  It’s a great responsibility.

 

Too much time is given to entertainment, again, even in My church.

 

I did not instruct you to entertain the children or to entertain the youth.  I Instructed you to raise them up in the praise and admonition of the LORD.

 

They don’t need to be entertained in church.  They need to be TRAINED!

 

Difficult times are coming and they’ll require difficult decisions and the laying aside of some of your toys.

 

You will need each other — need to help each other, like the Chilean minors who were trapped in the mine for days and they shared what little they had and prayed together.

 

There is yet some time to set your house in order, so you will have your priorities straight.

 

Come away with Me now while you can.  I will give you blueprints for the days ahead.   For the days are going to become very busy for the Kingdom of God!

 

There will be plenty of work for ALL of you to do.  Eat My Word, Sing My Word.  Get it deep in your heart if you haven’t already, for it will be taken away in further days ahead.

 

You are being censored even as I speak — so even sooner you will need to use wisdom in your communications.

 

If people will not be wise, You will need to dissociate from them because in their foolishness they’re blinded not understanding the depth of wickedness that is before you.

 

And they will be a detriment to all who know them out of ignorance, and because they are not relying on Me, the Holy Spirit.”

 

Ethnos vs. Ethnos

 

“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows. “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.  And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.  Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.  And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.  But he who endures to the end shall be saved.  And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come,”   Matthew 24:7-14 NKJV.

 

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God,”   2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 NKJV.

 

“Be not dismayed for I will increase discernment in those who are My true followers and in those they touch.

 

In order to hear from Me, we need to talk to one to another.  You need to come away with Me and converse with Me each day, so that you’ll have what you need to get through each day.

 

Laws passed that approve of murder are ‘Recipes for disaster’ and believe Me when I say that disaster is coming for every wicked thing that lifts up it’s head up against Me.

 

There are great waves coming of AWAKENING.  Tsunamis of My LOVE WILL FLOOD THIS LAND even as the rainwaters and snow are flooding this land.

 

As the earth shakes, so will I shake out those demonic entities, that have over-run this land!

 

People will flood into the Church as well, and the Church will be overwhelmed, because they have not prepared.

 

You will need Bibles you will need books, notebooks, translators, and translated materials because I have sent the nations to you, because you would not go to them.

 

You will need money and food to share.  So prepare at this warning and you will be blessed.”

 

“I AM releasing writers and artists so that children’s books, pamphlets, and other materials maybe done to help present the truth of the gospel!

 

You will also go to the streets for a time and the youth will put on plays in shopping malls and other places of gathering – in parks and larger areas, in neighborhoods and community centers.

 

The gospel will be presented in POWER!

 

Testimonies will be the art of the day!

 

Prepare, prepare, prepare!”

 

“And I looked, and behold, a white horse.  He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.  When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.”  Another horse, fiery red, went out.  And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.  When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” 

 

So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.  And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”  When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 

 

So I looked, and behold, a pale horse.  And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him.  And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.

 

And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to Me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.  Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple.  And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.  They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes,”   Revelation 6:2-8, 7:14-17 NKJV.

 

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death,”   Revelation 12:11 NKJV.

Be Bold, Strong, & Courageous!

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

“Be bold, strong and courageous,” says the LORD.

 

“Stand up!  Gear up and face the challenges that are affronting you!  Do not use avoidance or allow the enemy’s threats to push you back into the corner, as you become paralyzed with fear.

 

“Bare your teeth and find your tongue!  For the roar of the enemy is NO MATCH for My ready, powerful Word that I have given you that is in your heart.

 

“My powerful Word needs to proceed out of your own mouth, to activate it in your environs,” says the LORD.

 

“There needs to be action on your part,” says the LORD.

 

“ARISE TO THE OCCASION, for I have prepared you for every battle, and given you superior weapons of warfare that cannot be overpowered or destroyed.  They are MIGHTY THROUGH Me, and I AM with you and on your side!

 

“You have everything that you need from Me to be successful, for as you engage the difficulties, you will do so with My power that I give you from ON HIGH, and you will not only overcome, but you will have the victory, and become an undefeated Champion in MY kingdom, and overwhelm the enemy, disarm him, destroy his diabolical works, defeat his purposes, spoil his camps and claim NEW territories as you PUSH HIM BACK, and possess the land,” says the LORD.

You are My royal guards, My watchman who are coming into the knowledge of My love and the power of the fellowship in the Father, knowing that I AM giving you good and perfect gifts, as you comprehend the sacrifice that was made for your restoration and reconciliation to Me.

 

I AM a good Father and will bring forth such works in this hour that you will behold and know the might which I have wrought in your life, bringing you healing and deliverance, as you seek Me with all your heart and mind!

I Hear the Father Saying

By Robin Kirby Gatto

 

 

“The richness of your faith is being tested right now, My child, as you overcome the works of darkness, knowing the power of My marvelous Light, which has brought you the abundant Life!

 

Do not be afraid to dream, as My servants Joseph and Daniel, for I AM speaking to you in the quiet place in the midst of soul, during your slumber, giving guidance and instructions to what I have called you to.

 

Guard your heart against pride and know that the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy.

 

He is the father of lies and there is no truth in him and those who are captured under his spell are given over to the lies of that deception within their heart, seeking those who are in Me, as the counter measures of hell set an assault against those who are Mine.

 

I AM your defense, your strong tower and your refuge, and will protect you from the fiery darts of the enemy, as you put your trust in Me, looking to Me for all that you have need of, knowing that I will supply you the mental and emotional aptitude to resist the devil’s lies, causing you to be strengthened in My mighty power, to tread over serpents and scorpions, which will by no means harm you!

 

I AM the God of revival, and you have been leaning and thinking about survival, causing you to be distracted to the door that I have opened, where your soul will be revived, and I will give you peace beyond measure, causing your understanding to be opened, as I show My mighty works through you, giving you a firm-footedness to walk in My plans.

 

My plan for you is abundant hope and life, with joy unspeakable and full of glory.  Know that this is the time of the perfecting of My love within you, as you are matured deeply in love, knowing and experiencing My love towards you, so that you will know the hope to which I have called you.

 

I have your children and your family in the palm of My hand, and will bring them into the Kingdom of My Marvelous Light and My power, bringing healing and deliverance, as I heal and cure your soul!

 

The incurable wound you have dealt with in the past will no longer vex you, for this is the hour of My power and My might!

 

Watch for signs in the earth and in the heavens, that will resound the glory of My Name, as I bring revival fire in the earth, setting it ablaze with the Love of My Son and My Spirit, to know the Sonship My children have been given through Me, their Abba!

 

GLORY TO GOD!

AMEN AND AMEN!

GOD BLESS!

I AM Here For You!

By Catharina Schouten-Meijer

 

 

Today I felt a bit down.  You can have such moments where it feels like the sun will never shine again!

 

As I start to fix myself some lunch, I can`t manage to open my drinking yogurt.

 

Then I hear Abba say: “Call My Name!”

 

And stubborn as I can be, when I’m in these kind of moods, I say: “Mm like that will help, YESHUA….”

 

Before I realize it, and not even busy trying to open it myself, I hear a plop sound and I can pour my yogurt.

 

Today Abba tells us: “When everything seems to be lost and nothing seems to work, when you feel abandoned, and your name seems to be Remi (all alone on the world), just whisper My Name and I will show you that I AM here for you!”

 

 

 

Blessings and Shalom over you!

~ Mamme Devorah

Ordinarily Useful

By Greg Laurie

 

 

           

LISTEN  

 

 

 

God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.

—1 Corinthians 1:28–29

 

David was the most unexpected man to ascend the throne of Israel. The people had chosen a man named Saul. He stood taller than everyone else and was somewhat charismatic. People liked him. At first it looked as though Saul would be a good king. But it wasn’t long before he was filled with pride and began blatantly disobeying God. The Lord warned him, yet Saul kept disobeying. Finally, the Lord said in effect, “You’re done. I’m going to replace you.”

 

Along came David, with reddish hair and probably some freckles. The people who watched Samuel anoint him as the next king of Israel perhaps thought that Samuel was going senile. Are you kidding me? Him? You’re choosing David of all people?

 

Yet God sees things differently than we do. David was just an ordinary shepherd boy, yet he was chosen by God.

 

Why do you think God seems to go out of His way to choose the most unqualified people? It’s a very simple answer: so He’ll get the glory. As 1 Corinthians 1:28–29 tells us, “God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God” (NLT).

 

You have nothing to say about the circumstances you’re facing right now. But you have a lot to say about how you will react and what you will live for.

 

God isn’t looking for talented people, gifted people, or handsome people. I’m not saying that He won’t use those people. But God is looking for available people, and He can do a lot with a little. He can do extraordinary things through very ordinary people. God uses ordinary people to change the world.

"The Weather Forecast of Your Life is Heavy Rain!"

By David Lebo

 

 

God's heart will always be to leave the ninety-nine for the one. If every service is for one person, so be it. If we all gather for just one person's breakthrough, it is worth it. God is stirring the waters just like a pool of Bethesda. The first one to jump in got what they needed from the Lord. That was then and now Jesus is the pool, and He is here for each and every one of us. If you'll jump into Jesus you'll get what you need, for God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is still Jehovah Rapha. He is still Jehovah Shalom. He is still El Shaddai—the Lord God Almighty.

 

The That Seed Remains

 

The Lord says, "Is there anything that I cannot do in your life—anything I will not do for the child of God who will just believe My Word? For My Word has gone out into all the earth; My seeds into the harvest fields. I'm looking for a place to plant My seed into fertile soil. I have found one such as this, for you are a vineyard of the Lord—a garden of My delight (Isaiah 5:7). I planted My seed deep into the soil of your life some many decades ago—10, 20, even 30 years ago. It was so deep within you, that even you forgot about the seed, but God did not forget the seed that was planted so deep in you.

 

"'I'm looking for one in the earth who will be broken for what breaks me! Who will be broken for the breakthrough of a nation?'"

 

"There is deep water coming to do a deep work in the Body of Christ. God is looking for one in whom He can plant His seed and entrust to take care of it. He is looking for a place that it will be cared for, watered, fertilized, and tilled. The ground in you has been tilled for many years, and you said, 'God, I can't stand the tilling any more. I've pulled out every rock, every weed, every hindrance, and every obstacle for this moment.'

 

"I brought My fire and I burned your field to a crisp many times over. It started to grow. You thought it was the enemy, but I brought the fire. In this time, place and season your field has become charred and black, burned by My Shekinah glory—BUT THE SEED REMAINS! This seed the enemy could not steal, for it was planted so deep in you. I had to dig deep in you because in this place, in the deep place, the birds of the air could not steal it away. The enemy could not even find it because it was so deep in you. But even in the times that you forgot, I did not forget My words of promise in you, for I spoke it into you many years ago.

 

"In this time, I am calling it forth. It's beginning to break through the ground. It's beginning to burst forth with green, fertile growth. I see thousands of seeds breaking through the ground as fertile plants that will begin to grow. There will be supernatural growth in this season, for what took decades before will only take days. For My 'miracle grow soil' has been deep in you, and I am causing My miracles to grow in you. I am bringing about a great harvest, for you, the reaper, will overtake the sower! Do you hear My words?"

 

"'Behold, the days are coming,' says the Lord, 'that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed...'" (Amos 9:13)

 

Accelerated Fruit, Lots of Son-Shine and a Heavy Rain of God's Glory!

 

"It will be a time of heavy, accelerated fruit with lots of Son-shine! I'll be the dawn of every new day, your bright Morning Star! My Shekinah glory will shine out on your life and your fields to bring exponential—hear My word—exponential acceleration. Many have cursed the very ground that you walked on, but I am reversing the curse for you now, in Jesus' name! I am turning it all around for My glory. What the enemy meant for harm I am turning it for My good. I am redeeming your land. I am redeeming the time. It's My time. It's My season of planting and harvests.

 

You're coming into such a heavy rain of My glory! Today: heavy rain. Tomorrow: heavy rain. Next week: heavy rain. Next year: heavy rain, heavy rain, heavy rain! You'll live in the reality of Hosea chapter 6. The weather forecast for your life is HEAVY RAIN. Wherever you go you will be under a cloud of My heavy-rain presence, wherever your feet may tread.

 

"In the midst of this rain, the Lord is singing a love song over you to remind you of His covenant love, and to remind you that He will never leave you or forsake you. His abiding presence will be with you always, even until the ends of the age. And know this, the rain will only get heavier, and heavier. The heavy, weighty 'kabod' of My presence will come upon you and you will be a carrier of My glory, an ark of My covenant in the earth. And where you walk, you will walk with glory feet. Your feet will be on fire for Me," says the Lord. "You will carry the glory feet of God to usher in My very presence wherever you go. And you'll say, 'The King is here! The King is here! The King is here!' As you decrease, I will increase.

 

Arise, O Mighty Warriors of Valor!

 

"To My leaders and five-fold ministers: My Church is not a building; it's a people! And you will raise up a generation, for you are generals in My army! You will raise them up! Even when God called Gideon He addressed him as, 'O mighty man of valor.' On this day, I say to you, 'O mighty warriors of valor: Arise!'"

 

"Gideon said to Him, 'Oh Lord, how can I deliver Israel? Behold, my clan is the poorest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house.'" (Judges 6:15)

 

"Do not think you are the least in your family or the poorest in your tribe. You are generals in My army, called to raise up a generation of GIDEON armies in this hour. The power will not be in your numbers but it will be in your unity, and you will fight as one man (see Judges 6:16). You will gather a nation, an army of the people of God, who will listen to My voice, who will be broken for Me and who will be carriers of My glory fire. This is who you are! I call you, mighty man and woman of valor! Arise and take your place." The Spirit of the Lord is blowing a ram's horn over you as a sign and a wonder of a commissioning day that God is placing you in your position apostolically.

 

As little David came before Samuel that day, he was placed into his rightful position of authority. From this day on, for many, know that you are God's generals placed by His hand, never to be moved from your position. "Blow a trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on My holy mountain, for you are My trumpets and instruments to speak forth My words in the earth. The spirit of the Lord clothed Gideon and he blew a trumpet (Judges 6:34)! He sounded a war cry to assemble an army of like-minded Believers who would fight as one man with no competition, no division, no denominations, no pride, or jealousy, but would empty out all that they were. You, too, will summon an army in this time for you are My GIDEONS!"

 

A Shofar to Honor the King

 

May the Spirit of the Lord come upon you in unlimited portions. His ram's call is sounding over you to be the prophetic voice of God to seal His Word in you. He is calling it forth one more time to bring life to a promise that was planted long ago. He didn't forget about it. In fact, He's bringing it to life.

 

Many times I have people stand when I blow the shofar in our meetings to honor the King of all kings. Samuel would not sit down until the king arrived. Little David came before Samuel to receive the kingly anointing. We stand to honor the King of all kings, the one who rules and reigns now in the earth; the one who reigns in eternity past, present, and future; the one who reigns in our lives now! I don't blow a shofar just to blow it. I blow it when God tells me to. That's the secret. That's obedience! When faith combines with the Word, that's where the power comes from. If you do something just to do it, it becomes religious ritual that will have no power. Always move with the Holy Spirit and the heart of God!

 

A Generation of Gideon Generals

 

"'In the midst of this rain, the Lord is singing a love song over you to remind you of His covenant love, and to remind you that He will never leave you or forsake you.'"

 

The Lord says, "I'm raising up a generation of warriors who will know My voice, who when I say, 'Move,' will move, when I say, 'Step,' will step, when I say, 'Turn right,' will turn right, when I say, 'Turn left,' will turn left; ones who will hear My voice, the whisper behind you that says, 'Go here, go there.' The ones with anointed ears to hear the whisper. This is the anointing that you need: Personal anointing straight from the throne for your mandate in the earth, and for your position of authority for what God has called you to be in the earth.

 

"Today, I am raising up My Gideon’s in the earth; My generals who will take their place in the army of God! For you thought that you were the least in your family, and the poorest in your tribe. God says to you: 'Arise, O mighty warriors of valor! Arise!' This is who you are! This is what you have been called to do. It doesn't matter what is in your bank account. 'Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of God' (Matthew 5:3 emphasis mine). If you thought you were poor and the least in your family, you're in good company, because God is calling you to rise up and take your place in His army, to blow a trumpet in Zion and sound an alarm on His holy mountain. "If there was a day, a time or a season where My Gideon’s need to come forth, it is today! It is now!"

 

"I am looking for one in all the tribes of Israel; one who I have called by name but who will know who they are in Me, know what they have been called to do, and who will walk in obedience to My Word. You may need five confirmations to do so; but you will still listen and put action into the word that I have given you. No more words just written on a page. I have written it on the tablets of your heart and I had inscribed it deep within you! It was the safest place that I could ever have put it; the safest place that I could hide it from the enemy so it would not be stolen away. But in this time and in these United States of America, I am raising up My Gideon’s in this hour."

 

Who Will Be the Voice? Who Will Be the Trumpet?

 

The Spirit of the Lord came upon Gideon as he blew a ram's horn to summon an army who would hear what the Spirit of God was saying. The ram's horn is symbolic of the prophetic voice of God. Who will be the voice? Who will be the trumpet for the breath of God to blow through an empty vessel?

 

The Lord says, "Emptiness is what I long for; emptiness is what I need. I desire for you to be void of your own opinions, void of your own ideas and thoughts, of your own battle plans, and ways—one who will be emptied out of all that you were in Adam. I'm looking for one. I'm looking for one."

 

Right now, I think He found more than one! God has found a Gideon company who is broken over the situation of a nation and the condition of a back-slidden Church.

 

God says, "I'm looking for one in the earth who will be broken for what breaks Me! Who will be broken for the breakthrough of a nation? This is what is transpiring in this moment of time. The waters are falling—the heavy rains of My presence—to bring a refreshing of all that I am to an army who is beat down, who have had the enemy take everything from them, who are living in caves, who haven't known who they are, who have had their harvest taken, who have no wine in the winepress, where there's no anointing flowing in the Church, who grieves over Zion, the city of the living God, who grieves over the situation of the Ekklesia, the Church—the Spiritual Israel in our day."

 

God is looking for one who will say, "Yes!" and be the answer to their own prayer. Who will be the answer? We complain at times about our situation, but God says, "Will you be the answer? Will you be the voice? Will you be the trumpet of the Living God? Will you be the vessel? I just need one, and I've got a company! I've got an army of GIDEONS that I am raising up in the earth that will blow with a mighty blow, with the very breath of God." The life of Yeshua will blow through you! It will no longer be you blowing, but it will be God blowing through you. The very wind of Heaven will blow through you like never before. You'll not contain the power of God that will blow through you in this hour.

 

The Lord says, "You are the trumpets of the Living God—the ram's horn obtained by the sacrifice of a male lamb through the crucifixion of Christ. You are the living sacrifices. He bought and paid for an anointing that He wants to pour out upon His people, and it's all by His grace and His mercy. I am just looking for somebody in the earth who I can pour out My Spirit upon, who will be willing to be the answer to their own prayer, but not the selfish prayer for themselves—no, no, no—it's for a nation, for these United States of America, and Israel, and the Church of the Living God." For this is a day and time for America, and for the Church to rise up to know who she is, whose she is, and that she carries within her the key to a great deliverance! Not just for one church, not for one city, not even for one region, but for a nation.

 

God is looking for ONE, but I know He has found many more! He is pouring out His Spirit in unlimited portions upon His Gideon’s in this hour, who He will raise up to be generals in His army to save a nation from destruction! For this is her freedom day! Let freedom reign in America! Let freedom reign in every church from sea to shining sea; from the east to the west, to the north and south, every denomination, every tribe, and every people!

 

Fire Will Fall Upon the Waters

 

The Lord says, "I will set them on fire with My glory. You are the ram's horn, and you will shout: 'For the Sword of the Lord and for Gideon!' Upon your word, it won't be you shouting anymore but it will be the power of the Living Christ in you that you will blow the fresh life and breath of God with a fresh fire! Then, at your words, fire will fall upon My altars of sacrifice and worship! A fresh anointing will come upon your words, and it won't be you speaking, it will be I, the Lord your God. Your words will carry the weighty glory of My presence. Fire will fall at your words as they bring conviction, burning and revival, awakening and repentance of sin, unrighteousness and judgment.

 

You will be a FIRE STARTERS FOR ME," says the Lord. "You will bring fire and revival to a nation! It's been dry, but the heavy rains of My presence will fall. There will be a flood of My waters and My fire will be upon the waters! In the natural, fire and watered do not mix, but in the spirit it's like pouring gasoline on a flame! You will be My mighty weapons in My hands for they are not carnal, but MIGHTY! You'll be a supernatural weapon of mass destruction against the kingdom of darkness! Mighty Gideon’s, RISE UP. Summon an army whose power is not in their numbers, but in their unity!

"The Lord Says, 'I Am Not Finished with You Yet!'"

By Elaine Tavolacci

 

 

The Lord has given me several dreams the past few weeks. A few nights ago, I dreamt of a prominent minister who many of you are familiar with. In this dream, I was watching him on an old black and white TV. As he was standing at the edge of the platform he had a word of knowledge. A lady quickly walked across the stage toward him. He yelled to her, "Get out of here!" She walked over to him and pushed him backward off the stage. I then lost reception on the TV. I was wondering if the program was live. I scrolled though the channels but just got static and was not able to tune the picture back in.

 

We Have His Authority to Overcome and Overthrow

 

As soon as I woke up and recorded the dream, I received the interpretation. I knew that this woman represented the spirit of Jezebel and the dream had a lot of spiritual significance. In this dream she didn't kill the minister but she tried to push him off his platform.

 

The Lord is showing me that the enemy has been trying to push many of you out of your position of authority. He is showing me an airplane that hasn't left the ground. Airplanes are meant to fly, not roll on a runway. You have a calling on your life but can't seem to get off the ground. The Holy Spirit wants to take you into new levels and new heights of what you have been called to do.

 

"...Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ..." (2 Corinthians 10:5)

 

That afternoon when I thought about this dream, I remembered something that I experienced a couple of years ago when I was very sick. I heard (not literally) a voice from the kingdom of darkness saying, "I am not finished with you yet." I remember thinking about this for a few seconds but then the presence of God flooded my body and the Holy Spirit spoke to me in a still small voice, saying, "I am not finished with you yet." He confirmed this word with the Scripture Jeremiah 29:11. I knew this was Jesus. His voice was gentle but strong. It was not demanding or forceful but filled with love and compassion.

 

"...being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ..." (Philippians 1:6)

 

I Am Not Finished With You Yet

 

The Holy Spirit is showing me that many of you are listening to the voice of the enemy and it is bringing fear and torment into your life. There are numerous voices in the world that vie for your attention throughout the day. They come in mere thoughts and images in your mind. They come with enticement and temptations. Jesus will never lead you in the wrong direction. The Holy Spirit is your comforter. Jesus has plans for you. He is not finished with you yet.

 

The Lord says, "Don't submit to the voices that bring defeat and confusion, but listen for the voice of truth. I have given you ears to hear and I speak with clarity. My voice will bring peace and it will carry My presence. It will always glorify Jesus for who He is and what He has done for you. It will release healing and it will bring favor. Don't allow your emotions to become entangled with thoughts of failure and defeat but allow Me to release My presence into every situation.

 

"You were once in the kingdom of darkness but now you are the light of the world. The enemy had trained you to fight well when you were in his camp, but now is the time to take those same spiritual weapons of warfare and use them against him. I have given you authority over powers, principalities, rulers of darkness and wicked spirits in heavenly places. I have put My Word in your mouth and have given you dominion to decree and declare what is rightfully yours. Your words have authority to call things into existence and transform atmospheres. The powers of darkness will have to obey and submit as you speak My Word.

 

"Do not submit to the lies of the enemy about your future. I am your healer, I am your provider, I am your deliverer, I am the God of your destiny and I am with you in the fire of affliction. Rejoice at all times and know that all that I have promised to you will come to pass. When the voices of darkness try to rise up against you in fear, intimidation and accusation, know that your victory is assured. I will watch over My Word to perform it and I will complete the work that I have began in you," says the Lord.

 

"He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it." (1 Thessalonians 5:24)

I Declare An End To Your Warfare

Make Peace Your Portion This Day

By Russ Walden

 

 

 

The Father says today, I declare an end to your warfare-make peace your portion this day. The enemy never bows his knee willingly, but he will bow. The greatness of My dunamis power flowing to you and through you will bring you out of every captivity in your life. Doors will open. Walls of their own accord will make themselves void, unable to hold you back from what I have promised. The works of men erected to restrict you will fall out to your benefit as I turn the enemy upon himself and your eyes will see it and know My sovereignty.

 

The sea will turn into dry land, says the Father. You will walk boldly where others have fallen on the right hand and on the left, and you will rejoice in Me on the very ground that I have made your inheritance. Nothing shall move you. You will not be moved by the threat that comes in daylight nor the intimidation that lurks in darkness coming forth from secret places. The scoffer shall be silenced. The mocker will be brought to shame. Through the fire and the water, you will go forth into the wealthy place that I have prepared for all them that take refuge in My name.

FIRE BY NIGHT

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

   

 "Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

 

         ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 

                                                      

 

                                         A "COVENANT-CONSCIOUSNESS"                  

 

Words of prophecy:         

 

*       I desire each and every one of His precious children to "rise up" to the next spiritual level [in the Kingdom] that I have prepared for them in this hour. Truly I say to you, it is My earnest desire for them to "supernaturally" [through the continual exercising of faith, love and obedience] enter into the place of "abiding" [dwelling] in perfect liberty [the fullness of Covenant blessing] in this season [free from every ground of fear and bondage] - in order that they might begin to walk in the "flow" of My unlimited and miraculous Provision, on EVERY level of life and ministry, to My greatest Glory.

 

"Unlimited" - not limited; unrestricted; unconfined; boundless; infinite; vast; without any qualification or exception; unconditional;

 

        ...."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

 

        ...."Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom)".... 2 Corinthians 3:17 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."The wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous".... Proverbs 13:22 NASB

 

        The Glorious Church will be a Church that is supernaturally empowered in EVERY way - including financially. Indeed, it is the Father's desire to make us great "signs and wonders" in the realm of finances. He has many plans [that He is revealing to the hearts of His faithful ones] to absolutely devastate the Enemy and his strongholds in this final hour BUT it is certain that it will take great amounts of money to get the job done. Therefore, we must be found allowing the Holy Spirit to renew our minds on a continual basis - for the fruit of one giving the Word of God preeminence in this hour will be a deep and abiding "Covenant-consciousness" - a Covenant-consciousness that will flood one's heart with revelation concerning ALL that belongs to them, in Christ.

 

        The Enemy fears, above all else, the child of God who is walking in the "fullness" of their Covenant [inheritance] for they will take the blessings that they have been blessed with and, in applying [through revelation] the Wisdom of God to the divine prosperity that is continually overtaking them, it is certain that they will SURELY devastate the Enemy and his strongholds in ways that are almost unimaginable, in this final hour.

 

        Wouldn't it be wonderful for every Christian to get up in the morning and ask the Holy Spirit to lead them to those they could help financially [or any other way, for that matter] and then head out looking for those the Lord "quickens" them to help - and be able to help them without any "limitation"? Yes it would! There are some glorious days ahead for those who are truly walking in Covenant with the Father!

 

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

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who diligently maintain a "Covenant-consciousness" - a people who truly know who they are IN Christ. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
