The Breaker Wave Shall Come!

 

The New Wineskin is the Temple presently being refashioned for God’s Glory and for Christ’s return. It rises in conformity to God as His final resting place—a sanctuary for His eternal habitation. After Israel left Egypt, God instructed Moses to, “Build Me a sanctuary!”  After David received the blueprint for the Temple, to House the Presence of God, he tells Solomon his son, “Be strong and do the work.”

“Every part of this plan,” David told Solomon, “was given to me in writing from the hand of the LORD.” Then David continued, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. He will see to it that all the work related to the Temple of the LORD is finished correctly. 1 Chronicles 28:20

So, God’s intention is for His house to be built, and that it is built correctly! Each dwelling place of God portrayed in the Bible, represented a facet of God—Law and order, Worship, Glory, and Grace. God’s final place of rest will represent all facets of Himself.  This final Sanctuary is the Wineskin of Jeshua and will reflect the Hebraic dynamic.  Believers of all nations are authentically grafted into the Vine that is Israel, that is Jeshua—A vine out of Egypt planted in Israel for the salvation of the world—out of Egypt I have called My Son (Matt. 2:15, Hos.11:1).

“You have brought a vine out of Egypt; You have cast out the nations, and planted it. You prepared room for it, and caused it to take deep root, and it filled the land. The hills were covered with its shadow, And the mighty cedars with its boughs. She sent out her boughs to the Sea, And her branches to the River.” Psalms 80:8

Jeshua Our Jewish King!

Jeshua, Son of Israel, is the Vine chosen by God connecting the River flowing from the Throne, through Israel into the Sea of humanity. Israel is the Hebraic root of all Gentile believers who are authentically grafted in. Jeshua is the Root and the Offspring of David—the destination and completion of the Journey that culminates and is completed in Jerusalem.

During the new era of the 20’s that was initiated by the entrance of Covid-19, God took this opportunity to begin the dismantling the blueprint of His House generated by man’s agenda and He began to re-build it from the blueprint ordained in Heaven. God’s blueprint is modeled in the Messiah—the blueprint to which His Glory will manifest in passionate love for His Bride.

It is important and necessary for all to understand that Jeshua is a Jewish King. His Throne is established on the Mountains of Jerusalem, divinely connected to His Throne in Heaven. He is seated on His Throne with Jerusalem as His footstool. Jerusalem—the City of the great King, is divinely and eternally connected to Jeshua, by His own determination and will.

“Will you at this time restore the Kingdom to Israel.” This was the question the disciples asked of The King. He answered them that it was not for them to know the time. Heaven is presently holding back the King until the times of restoration, back to the Kingdom model centered in Jerusalem, from where He will rule and reign.

Persecution Comes

The Ekklesia are those who represent the Kingdom—they serve the Great King and are sent out endued with His authority!  They bow to His will. They serve His desires. They serve no other will but His. Our commitment is to Him and to enforce His will. This type of devotion will attract persecution to all who serve Him—both Jew and Gentile.

Persecution will come. I recently read a tweet from a well-known person stating that forty five percent of evangelical Christians refuse to get the vaccination and are now the new North Korea or China, meaning the new enemy.  I have also heard prominent Media personalities attacking Christians with similar statements. Persecution will be rising exponentially in the coming days for both Jews and Christians.  Believers must find their place of strength and safety in the Lord—He is our Glory zone of refuge.  Worship the King, obey the Holy Spirit, bless Israel and you will be blessed. Don’t be a fault-finder—love, pray and bless the Jewish people.

“For the days are coming where to find Me will be to find Me locked in My embrace of Israel. The time is coming when I will no longer look away or be silent at those who discount or disparage My people.  I Am Israel—Prince of God! The history of My Coming to planet Earth is embedded eternally into Israel’s history—I suddenly came to them, for the salvation of the world. I came from the womb of My Beloved. I will return to My place in Jerusalem to rule and reign. Those who will not align to this truth will find themselves on a different path than I am travelling and will be outside of My will and purposes in this hour. For I am moving on a clear path—My destination is Zion.  I am moving in Aliyah—returning to My homeland, from where I will rule the Earth. Those who are aligned to My will, will find the path ahead saturated with oil and with divine providence, for My hand will rest on you with great favor and Glory.

Prepare My Sanctuary in your midst and build My House. Build according to My blueprint.  My blueprint has a Throne—A Throne set in Jerusalem. My blueprint is a Kingdom.  I am a Great King, and everything surrounds My will and My desires. Everything revolves around serving Me, pleasing Me and Ministering to Me. Leaders you are called to minister to Me, to serve Me and bow to My will. Do not attempt to build according to the old ways—look to Me, I am the Center, you serve My will and nothing else. My House will be called a House of tefillah where all come to commune with me and serve My will—where I and I alone am exalted and served. You enter My gates with thanksgiving and with praise; you wait before Me to see what I shall say—waiting at My gates. Honor Me and I will manifest my great Presence. David understood this, that is why the blueprint I gave him will be restored for all nations, and for My second coming. Thousands upon thousands of worshippers were ordained to worship before Me, and thousands upon thousands of priests ordained to minister to Me. This is the House I desire! Return to Me and build my Sanctuary! Arise and work! For I will be with you as you seek my face for direction.

God is preparing to come, to break into the world situation as the Breaker. According to scripture the Breaker rested on the head of a people—an army, prepared to fight with Him to break through the barriers and obstacles, attempting to restrict the way of the Presence.

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

Jill Austin gave a powerful description of the breaker anointing, she said: “A breaker anointing is a catalytic deposit of the Holy Spirit where eternity breaks through into the natural realm. It’s a holy invasion where the gates of heaven are breaking open with visitations and salvations, healing and deliverance. The breaker anointing is the core anointing of the apostolic Church.”

A Breaker Wave Comes!

The warfare is about to ramp up and intensify as His Presence draws ever closer. A tsunami wave of God’s Presence is about to break over the Earth, a wave that will bring great turbulence, change and Glory.  As I was pondering this wave, I heard the Lord say to search the words wave and breaker and was both stunned and shaken by what I found.

In fluid dynamics, a breaking wave or breaker is a wave whose amplitude reaches a critical level at which some process can suddenly start to occur that causes large amounts of wave energy to be transformed into turbulent kinetic energy. (Wikipedia)

There is much to unpack in this definition in regard to what God is revealing. When the wave pulls back and reaches the critical point at which its energy level is at the maximum, it means something is about to occur. A new process is about to begin. Large amounts of wave energy is then released and transformed into turbulent kinetic energy. This is tremendous energy that creates movement—a movement of uncontrolled ferocious power readied to be unleashed. Why did God tell me to check these words and what is He saying to us? I believe He is saying to be ready for what is about to break over the Earth.

I remember watching videos of the great tsunami of 2004 in Thailand, as it roared and swept over the land uprooting and moving everything in its path—boats, cars, trees and even buildings, nothing could resist the power and the energy of the wave released—yet many did survive. Those that were able to survive did so because of three main reasons. They clung to something secure that was immovable, like  trees and certain objects. Some were able to get to high ground and were safe, and others were able to flow with the wave and were miraculously unharmed—many experiencing supernatural miracles.

These are principles important for believers to adhere to in these times. The secure thing to cling to that is immovable is Christ. Your relationship to Christ must be secured and anchored—He is our strong Tower of Refuge. The high ground of authority in Christ is also the place we must learn to occupy and dwell, before the shaking begins. And lastly, we cannot forget the miracle working power of God to supernaturally save in any situation we may face. Without fear we can ride the waves and the heights with Him to rescue those that are lost.

I began this word with Israel because in the coming days, to be securely grafted into the place where the LORD has chosen to secure Himself, is to be safe and to be blessed. Israel is the center around which everything in the world revolves, as it is the seat of the Throne from where the King will sit to judge the Earth. This is the time to be fully aligned and secured in Jeshua in all His ways, virtues, and the dynamics of who He is as a Son of Israel.

“Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in, and in this way all Israel will be saved. As it is written: “The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.” Romans 11:25-26

In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Isaiah 2:3 Israel is the high Ground where we must find ourselves to be safe during the coming tsunami wave and shakings hitting the Earth. Everyone must do Aliyah in the Spirit, returning to Jerusalem our future home in the King. Set your anchor in Jeshua, King of Israel, Blessed is the King of Israel!” John 12 :13

The Day of Reckoning!

In my last word I shared on the book of Amos, and from the time that the Lord said I was to read this book, I have been mulling over it. Amos was uncompromising in his devotion to God and through this prophet, the Lord made it clear to the nation that their religious prayers and sacrifices did not compensate for the evil taking place and would not protect them from the ruling of the Righteous Judge. God always looks at the heart of man and its motivations rather than its actions, which can often camouflage unrighteous motives. The foundation of God’s throne is justice and righteousness—this is by His determination. God highly esteems righteousness, fairness, and balanced scales, that is at the heart and core of who He is!

“But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream,” Amos 5:24

In the time of Amos, God confronted the great injustices happening in every sphere of the nation; he addressed the blatant disregard for those living in abject poverty and lack, while the rich and elite got fat on excessive and lavish lifestyles. The nation did not guard against the accelerating demonic drift into lawlessness, nor did it comprehend the level of God’s displeasure over the injustice and unrighteous living. Warning after warning was sent, but the nation did not regard the message. The word of the Lord Amos brought to the nation was rejected. They admonished him to stop prophesying and questioned his credibility, condescendingly noting that he was just a lowly shepherd.

Through the prophesying of Amos, God repeatedly said that he would not relent or pass by the nation’s sin any longer—it was a wake-up call to change their ways. The Lord gave much time for repentance and much opportunity for the nation to turn from their wicked ways, as happened in Nineveh. At this time other prophets like Hosea were also prophesying of a coming day where they would be called to account—a divine intervention was impending. But to no avail! In God’s longsuffering, thirty to forty years passed before Assyria suddenly marched against Israel.

There was a time when I was to share a word from the Lord at a church, but lost my voice. I fervently prayed for God to heal my voice, but he didn’t. Instead, He said to give the word in the voice that I had—that my whisper was to be a sign and a wonder. He said that those who had ears to hear would hear. As it turned out they did hear, and God moved powerfully. How important it is to hear what the Spirit is saying—to understand His movements and hear His warnings. God gives the humble ears to hear, and He gives much time to repent. However, the day does come when He says, I will not pass by any longer!

A Day of Reckoning is at Hand

During a recent time of intercession, I heard the Lord say the words, a day of reckoning. There was weight on the statement, and I felt led to check the definition of the word reckoning. It means in essence, a settling of accounts, the time where we are forced to deal with a grave situation—the time where God has reached His limit or patience—the end of the discussion. In the Hebrew, the word reckon is pquddah and also means visitation—a time of encountering the living God for a time of discipline. In the book of Ezekiel, God declared that even if Noah, Moses or Daniel were to intercede on behalf of the land, that He would not listen to them (Ez. 14:20). Even though God is longsuffering, He does have limits to his patience. When time is up, the time for dialogue is over.

A Day of Reckoning is at Hand. The present U.S. administration has clearly not been given the mandate or the anointing to lead the nation, or to carry the responsibility of being the world leader. They are presently fumbling and stumbling under the weight of the office and the mandate the job carries. The shadow government of the prior Obama administration seems also to be very much in play as the press secretary recently admitted that he was meeting on a regular basis with Biden. Many news sources are now calling the present administration, Obama’s third term. It could well be called the Obiden administration.

“Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? Where will you leave your riches? Isaiah 10:1-3 

Nations have fallen to a gross departure from the norms of a civilized society. Horrendous things are now taking place such as young children not only being trafficked in the sex trade, but the latest horror has become organ trafficking. Children’s organs are now a valuable commodity and can go for hundreds of thousands of dollars. This has become big business in Africa, China, and Mexico where children are kidnapped, and their organs sent to Europe and North America.

Recently a Democratic state lawmaker spearheaded a bill that would criminalize medical enhancements given for children and minors under 18, for transitioning to another gender. It should not be necessary to legislate against insanity, however, even so, a multitude of his colleagues denounced both him and the legislation. There are also many with liberal mindsets, who find babies being aborted up to the day of its birth as acceptable. A culture of death and evil is steadily and ominously seeping into society where it has become acceptable to call good evil and evil good, where pastors and Christian leaders are prevented from meeting and preaching Christian values.

A day of reckoning is also coming for the elites of the world whose lives are being weighed in the balances. What is owed must be paid. What is stolen must be returned, a balancing of the accounts is being called for. Those who thought they had gotten away with fraud, theft and robbing the nations of its wealth will be called to account for it. There is an extraordinary ever-growing disparity between the rich and the poor, those dominated by the rise of the mega corporations. During the space of one year, during the time of Covid, when so many people have suffered, lost their livelihood, their businesses, their incomes and even their lives, these corporations have doubled their profits in the hundreds of billions. Thousands of small businesses have had to permanently close their doors, while mega corporations grow to become Global giants, increasing their dominance and influence over nations and even governments.

Where is God in all This?

Some may have wondered where God is in all of this, and why He has not moved to stop the madness. Why has He allowed it to continue? God sees it all, as nothing is hidden from him. We cannot try to fathom the higher and surpassing ways of God, His perfect understanding of all things, and the ways and timing of how He chooses to move. But can we imagine How grieved He must be! The One who loves beyond understanding, especially the children. Repeated examples in scripture warn us that, though it may be long in coming, the day of reckoning does come! The Word reveals that God chooses to be silent in seasons, but His silence does not last forever!

Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High. Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.” But God says to the wicked: “Why bother reciting my decrees and pretending to obey my covenant? For you refuse my discipline and treat my words like trash. When you see thieves, you approve of them, and you spend your time with adulterers. Your mouth is filled with wickedness, and your tongue is full of lies. You sit around and slander your brother—your own mother’s son. While you did all this, I remained silent, and you thought I didn’t care. But now I will rebuke you, listing all my charges against you. Repent, all of you who forget me, or I will tear you apart, and no one will help you. But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.” Psalm 50:14-23 NLT

I don’t particularly like writing words highlighting darkness or the discipline of God. I would much rather write of the Joy, the Glory, and the Light, but know I have to be obedient to what I feel God is leading me to share. Writing about the Light and about Jesus is easy, as He is so magnificent and beautiful, full of goodness, majesty, and Glory.  But God is grieved about these things, and if we carry His heart, we will be grieved also and be moved to align with Him in His intercession. It is easy to become self-centered and inward focused on our own needs, desires, and comforts. It is easier to choose to ignore the presence and realities of evil. But there is a rising cry, that is becoming a crescendo, coming up from the Earth before the throne of God—from the children, from the despairing, and from the blood of the slain that speaks.

According to a new report, a large percentage of Europe have abandoned Christianity. Unless God moves to do something, a generation will be lost.  God will move on behalf of the children! He will have a posterity that carries His name into the future. God does have a people who will serve Him whole heartedly in this hour, who will not be shaken by the shakings that will come. He does have a people prepared who will walk in His likeness, who will walk amongst the evil and the sinners, to save those who will hear. He does have a people who will walk like He walked and do the works that He did and more—its promised in scripture!  He will have a people who will carry the mantle of Isaiah 61, on whom the Spirit of the Lord rests. An army of compassionate souls who bring beauty for ashes. In the Day of Reckoning the Lord’s intention is to save many! He will not be silent for long. He will come to save!

The LORD will march forth like a mighty hero; he will come out like a warrior, full of fury. He will shout his battle cry and crush all his enemies“I have long been silent; yes, I have restrained myself. But now, like a woman in labor, I will cry and groan and pant. Isaiah 42:13-14 

The Lord is calling for a heart change in His people and not an outward show of piety—a true move of brokenness over sin. Rather than attempting to justify our sin nature, its time to get real with God. For many days I have been hearing the words, rend your hearts and not your garments, and later found it in scripture:

“So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the LORD your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm.  Who knows if He will turn and relent, And leave a blessing behind Him.”  Joel 2:13-14

Get Ready For The Plumb Line to Fall!

Over the past week I have been hearing the Lord say to read the book of Amos. As I read, what was  outstanding to me, was that things had reached a state where God decided it was time to do something—that He would no longer turn aside. The situation was grave and called for significant measures, where it became necessary to bring out Heaven’s ultimate weapon against corruption—the only solution to the problem!  God said to Amos, I am sending the Plumb Line!

“And the LORD said to me, “Amos, what do you see?” And I said, “A plumb line.” Then the Lord said: “Behold, I am setting a plumb line in the midst of My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore.”  Amos 7:8

The Plumb Line is the stature and measure of Christ, the King! It is a revelation and manifestation of the true authentic Christ in fullness of stature and Glory; where in beholding Him, all fall prostrate and declare, “Woe is me; I am a man of unclean lips.” The Plumb line will expose and bring all mixture within the House of God into the light to reveal what is of Christ and what is not. Nothing and no one is pure and perfect other than Jesus Christ! Nonetheless, the repentant are safely hidden within Him. It will become increasingly important to be secured in Him—to recognize and become aligned with the authentic Christ and not another christ. Jesus warned that there would be many false christs manifesting and giving false testimony as the days draw closer to His return. It is in knowing Jesus intimately in His five-fold High Priestly role, and in all the attributes and virtues resident within Him, that we are able to discern the counterfeit and not acknowledge another.

Our God is a jealous God who dislikes mixture. At present there is a mix of good and evil in every sphere of humanity—becoming more clearly defined with each day. We see a mixture of the lie with the truth, mixture in the motivations of heart and mixture of all kinds of spirits functioning. God is clearly drawing a distinguishing line between light and darkness, thereby eliminating the fence sitters and confronting the lukewarm in His Church.  In the parable of the wheat and tares, God said, let them grow together to their fullness until the time of harvest (Matt. 13:30). Well, it’s harvest time and the Plumb Line will be moving to separate the wheat from the tares. In a previous word that I wrote regarding 2021, the Lord showed me that good and evil would be coming to a head beginning in 2021.

In these times, it has become extremely important to discern the veiled deception within every discourse, as everything now spoken through all forms of media—written, audio or video, is now mixed with politics, innuendo and lies, and is releasing deliberate, intentional duplicity. What was thought to be conspiracy in the past is now proving to be factual, however, to confuse, it is being presented cloaked in lies and propaganda.

A common tactic of the enemy—his chief strategy used in the garden, is to conceal truth within error and ambiguity, to discredit the truth. He does this brilliantly on both sides of the equation as a masterful propagandist. He creates mixture so truth is masked and undiscernible. People see or hear the error and either throw out the treasure with the defiling influences or embrace the truth along with error. God is the two-edged sword discerning the thoughts and motivations of man and is the Revealer of truth. Only the Spirit of God by the Word has the power to divide between flesh and spirit, and truth and the lie. How important then is it for us to become one with Christ in His heart and mind.

“For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrew 4:12 AMP

It has become critical in these times to have a mind that is renewed, formed in union with the mind of Christ. The mind is the new wineskin now being fashioned to perceive the thoughts and intentions of God for this volatile season. There is much flesh and too little Spirit and Word presenting right now. A smorgasbord of opinions has infiltrated the Church based on secular ideas and philosophy and not on the supernatural Word, Will and nature of God. Paul admonishes us in Romans 12:2 too have a renewed mind.

“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.” TPT

The prayer of power is the one Jesus taught us to pray—Thy will be done, Thy Kingdom come on Earth as it is in Heaven. Every Kingdom has a King! We have one King, one Lord and one Master, and every knee must bow to Him. What does it matter what we have to say and about our many opinions! All that matters is what the King’s opinion is and what He has to say! The only thing that produces for eternity is what is done through Him, in His Name.  The Lord is not asking us to rule for Him, to govern for Him, to pastor for Him, or to evangelize for Him.  He is not calling us to work for Him! He has called and chosen us that He—the King, might rule through us, govern through us, pastor through us, evangelize through us, and administrate His House through us.

Some focus all their energy on building their own houses and empires when God is saying, build My House! His House is a corporate body of many parts, and without Him as the centre in the mix, we can do nothing and accomplish nothing of eternal value. The new move of God coming, is Christ moving through a newly formed and submitted wineskin, where the King rises, moves in, takes over, cleans up the messes we have made, and cleanses the defiling secular and even demonic influences we have allowed in His house.

The King comes to establish His Kingdom, and the Faith as it is in Heaven! In comparison to His intentions, the humble will recognize that, at present there is mixture in every aspect of governance of His House. When He moves, all must yield to him and every knee must bow to His demands. As He says in Amos, He will overturn, just as He overturned everything in the temple when He first came. We have built His House according to the world’s blueprint and standards, when, as the Chief Architect, He designed it to be a House of prayer!

“Even them I will bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on My altar; For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” Isaiah 56:7

“And he taught, saying unto them, is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? But ye have made it a den of thieves.” Mark 11:17 KJV

The word for as used in for all nations, is not in the original translation I believe the King James Version translation is more accurate, where God is saying that all nations shall call the House of God a House of Prayer. The word prayer in Hebrew is tefillah, which embodies the heart of love and worship in communion with its Creator. Tzvi Freeman’s commentary on this verse captures the essence of the definition of the word tefillah in Jewish thought:

But what kind of labor can the heart do to serve G‑d? The classic Jewish answer is that this is tefillah: a labor of awakening the hidden love within the heart until a state of intimate union with the divine is achieved. That’s why the common translation—prayer—is horribly inaccurate. Prayer implies two distinct entities, an inferior one making a request of a superior. There is another Hebrew word for this: bakashah. Similarly, worship has a word: shevach. Tefillah includes both these elements but is itself neither of them. Instead, communion may be a better word—defined as a joining together of mind and spirit.” (Chabad.org)

In Mark 11, God is declaring that all nations will call His House a House of tefillah—a place where Communion with Him transpires, where He is exalted—a place where He is acknowledged as Lord, where He directs and administrates His House. In tefillah we discern, we understand, we receive revelation, and we receive direction. What were the leaders of the Ecclesia doing at Antioch, they were fasting, praying and ministering to the Lord in tefillah? These are three requirements for Governance of God’s affairs and estate. We can’t fear the people, we must fear God first and foremost.

In writing this word, I saw a picture of the Plumb Line having a diamond as the tip; the diamond representing all the facets of Christ—our multidimensional God. A diamond is the hardest known material on earth, even stronger than steel, and can even cut through glass. It is said that only diamonds can cut diamonds. The Plumb Line of Christ is the Diamond being sent through the Holy Spirit to now cut and shape His corporate people, to fashion us into the most brilliant reflection of His Glory and all the facets of the marvels of His life.

God is calling His people to come out of the world and be seated at His table. He is presently preparing a feast, setting a table for us, and asking us to come and dine with Him. Much of the world is presently dining at the table of demons, feasting on hate, anger, and every kind of foul bird. We can’t seek to appease and compromise on God’s Word. Preaching must be founded on the Word of God—even the tough passages on sin. Righteous, fearless, preaching must rise once again to declare righteousness and holy living in the House of God, according to the Plumb Line of Christ (without religious controlling spirits).  As I was reading Amos God got my attention with another scripture.

“This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me: a basket of ripe fruit. “What do you see, Amos?” he asked. “A basket of ripe fruit,” I answered. Then the LORD said to me, “The time is ripe for my people Israel; I will spare them no longer.” Amos 8:1-2 

Amos saw a basket of ripe fruit; other translations say a basket of summer fruit.  God spoke in this passage using two similar Hebrew words as a play on words, the first is qayits meaning harvest, ripe or summer fruit; and the other in reference to Israel is qets meaning an end or extremity.  The basket of fruit represents the people of God. I Believe It is possible that by summer we will see a shaking begin and God move in unique ways. The dynamic of the Plumb Line is two-fold in that it works to bring the righteous and submitted into fullness of alignment with Christ, yet, by its nature as the piercing Light of God it will stir and shake the demonic foundations of the Earth.  The Plumb Line will rebuild the House of God to represent tefillah.  Amos 9:11 tells us that the Lord will return to raise up and rebuild the Tabernacle of David—a House built within the Jewish dynamic of Jeshua, in the order of tefillah to possess the harvest of all the Gentiles called by His name!

“On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins and rebuild it as in the days of old; That they may possess the remnant of Edom, And all the Gentiles who are called by My name,” Says the LORD who does this thing.”

God is getting ready to release the Plumb Line to Build the House of Tefillah! I believe He is saying that the people are ripe, and the time is ripe for a move of God! Will we be found ripe and ready for action in surrender to God, or will we be found ripe and ready to be spoiled? Selah

White House Down!

 

Although I live in Canada, my grandfather was an American and I do have a burden for this nation. Over the last five years, God has focused my attention and intercession on the United States and its government. There has been some objection within the Church regarding Christian involvement in the political realm, however, in the scriptures much of the discourse between God and His servants, was directly related to the rulership of the nation or of nations, to the sin or righteousness of the rule of its kings, and of God’s consequent blessings or judgments regarding their rule. The examples are too numerous to share! Others say our focus should be on God, not on politics. I believe that our attention should be focused first and foremost on God, always, and from that place we then move in obedience to wherever He directs our attention and our actions in our service to Him. As someone I know wisely once said, “To follow God’s ways is to follow Life!”

Today, regarding how we as Christians relate to the rule of governments, certain scriptures such as Romans 13:1-7 cannot be broadly or religiously applied. In the New Covenant, with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and God’s move from the dispensation of law to Grace, God deliberately made unclear the application of many of His ordinances, especially in regard to church structure, as they are now subjected to the administrations of Holy Spirit, as Galatians 5:18 states, “But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.”  In these times, the Government’s level of control over our lives raises legitimate and important questions—questions that many are now having to wrestle with.

Have there not been times when, because of conscience, the people of God were required to resort to civil disobedience, and in certain extreme cases even to outright resistance? For example, when Pharoah ordered that all baby boys were to be killed, the midwives disobeyed. When Peter was told not to preach of Jesus, he disobeyed, and said, shouldn’t he obey God rather than man. And in instances where some found themselves living under evil regimes such as the Nazis, Mussolini and others, resistance was necessary to preserve life. The Holy Spirit warned Joseph to flee the nation and go to Egypt to preserve Jesus’ life. How important then does the gift of wisdom and discernment become in times of the overreach of governmental rule. The gift of discernment and the leading of the Holy Spirit is therefore vital to our well-being and the stand we may have to take.

Today, I believe there is a strange lack of discernment among many regarding satan’s evil agenda for this hour of history, and the manner in which he is now exploiting the governments of nations to “…change times and laws,” to his diabolical purposes for humanity (Dan. 7). In just the same way that many could not accept or believe the level of atrocity, and the scope of the demonic agenda executed through Hitler—to annihilate an entire race of people from the face of the Earth, so at present, many also refuse to accept or believe the depth of horrific evil, and the present unfolding of the sinister plan being rolled out in the earth—even infiltrating high levels of the church and many denominations. The disbelief is puzzling, especially since they have blatantly come out from the shadows into the open with their agenda. It is all there to see for any who so desire.

America, in this notable hour of history, and as the last bastion of Judaeo-Christian values, is presently the primary target of dark forces bent on its destruction. For their diabolical plan to succeed to attain world dominion, America must be subdued, contained, restrained, and subjected to anti-Christian regulations. Since the inauguration of the new president, the forces backing him have been feverishly and systematically moving in a comprehensive and strategic plan, to implement the take-down of America. Their intention is to deplete her military might and her economic strength. Evidence of this plan can clearly be seen coming out of the White House in the barrage of executive orders—fifty and counting—and legislation now being enacted to weaken the nation.

Executive orders have been passed allowing transgender men to now participate in women’s sports and compete in every arena where women have been prospering and succeeding. The very aggressive LGBTQ agenda has now established a firm stronghold being used successfully to change times and laws based on the false premise of inclusiveness. This legislation seeks to undermine women at a time when God is moving to establish women in all spheres and on all fronts. The Biblical foundation of marriage and family has been removed in the courts and the push is now on to eliminate God’s creation and determination of male and female. Pronouns such as he and she, and motherand father are now banned in congress and certain arenas where only gender-neutral terms are allowed.

Gender-neutrality is now being pushed on children at a young age where they are encouraged to choose their sex from as young as three years old. In certain states stores are no longer allowed to separate toys by gender. The intent is the cross breeding of genders where there is no longer distinction between male and female in body or in dress. The assault against children continues with child trafficking which has grown at an exponential rate in the last few years with cases rising on human trafficking to over 842% over the last ten years. Arrests skyrocketed under the Trump administration that aggressively targeted pedophiles and human traffickers. The move to destroy and defile the next generation of children and teenagers in every evil an horrific way, is now proceeding legally. From pedophilia to gender confusion, and with the funding of abortion now increasing in the world through the present Governments of Canada and America, the slaughter of babies, even up to nine months, grows at home and in nations abroad.

Executive orders have also been passed to open the nation’s borders to illegal immigration and demolish security forces protecting the borders. There can be no other conclusion than that their intent is opening the gates to a flood of all forms of illegal activity especially related to drugs and human trafficking. Hundreds of thousands of immigrants are beinginvited to enter the nation illegally without being tested for Coronavirus, and are being wooed by $1400 cheques, free health care and education. The present administration has also cancelled Donald Trump’s executive order restricting travel from failed state nations; because of this, the potential for terrorist attacks increases and becomes a real possibility.

In his hatred of God, satan’s ultimate target, however, is Israel, and his intent is the annihilation of this nation and its people from the face of the Earth. The progress of peace in the Middle East that was made under the Trump administration, between the Sunni Muslim nations and Israel, is being incrementally dismantled on all fronts, while sanctions set in place against Iran are removed. The destabilizing of America in its self-sufficiency as the number one producer of oil is now being undermined with executive orders resulting in a great loss of Jobs. The invitation to the antichrist spirit is being issued to breed chaos in order to bring forth the Antichrist—the man of peace who will solve the world’s problems with solutions predetermined on man’s submission and servitude.

The demonic realm has tasted power and will not give it up too easily!  If the satanic plan is successful, draconian laws will begin to be rolled out to bring people into full subjection to their will, and to usher in a new world order. After Donald Trump’s speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, in January 2020, where he snubbed their agenda for Globalism and the Great Reset, George Soros ominously declared in response: “I regard it (Trump’s administration) as a purely temporary phenomenon that will disappear in 2020, or even sooner.”

I don’t believe it is too late for things to be turned around, God is able to do the impossible and inconceivable! However, if America falls, and the role given to champion the causes of God and to restrain evil in the Earth is lost, the demonic grip on the world will tighten. For these reasons, it is extremely critical for every believer of every nation to be praying for America at this time! During a recent time of intercession, I saw a picture of the White House surrounded by soldiers, and a fence with barbed wire, with the words White House Down written over the picture. This is actually a movie, where enemy forces gain control of the White House, the nation and therefore the world.

I also saw a picture of a White House representing the House of God, and the White House in Washington DC, side by side, and understood that their condition was related. I then saw the Supreme Court in Washington and the Courtroom of Heaven as also related. My sense was that there were outstanding, undealt with issues in the House of God—legal issues in the spirit, having its effect on what was playing out in the White House. Because these issues were not being dealt with in the Courts of Heaven lawyers were being barred from presenting their case to the Supreme Court on Earth.

 Satan is using the laws of God written against sin, to hinder breakthrough in the defense of America; his intent is to change times and laws. Much of everything taking place at this time is related to law, legal issues and lawyers who are at the forefront. Shortly after receiving this understanding, I began reading Robert Henderson’s book on The Courts of Heaven, where something he said seemed to jump of the pages. He said unanswered prayer was because something legal in the Spirit realm was resisting. He went on in another chapter to discuss a dream he had, that God had related to Isaiah 66:17, where the people were going after idols and eating strange food. The following morning in my devotional time I opened my Bible to this very same scripture and began to receive and write this word.

The Lord also took me to Ezekiel chapter 8, where He takes Ezekiel on a tour of His House to show him all the abomination taking place in it. In this instance God was very angry with those who were not grieving with Him about the condition of His House—the House He loved! I believe God is making it clear that we must first deal with the sin in His House, in order to cleanse the White House, the reason why Lawyers have been barred from bringing their case before the Supreme Court on earth. God’s desire is for those who represent Him on Earth, who love truth, who love justice and mercy—to walk humbly before him, and to live in holiness before Him (Mic. 6).

“God’s will is for you to be set apart for him in holiness and that you keep yourselves unpolluted from sexual defilement. Yes, each of you must guard your sexual purity with holiness and dignity, not yielding to lustful passions like those who don’t know God.  Never take selfish advantage of a brother or sister in this matter, for we’ve already told you and solemnly warned you that the Lord is the avenger in all these things.  For God’s call on our lives is not to a life of compromise and perversion but to a life surrounded in holiness. Therefore, whoever rejects this instruction isn’t rejecting human authority but God himself, who give us his precious gift—His Spirit of holiness.” 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8

Has the Church been pointing fingers and judging others while there is possibly a big log in our own eyes? How are we to respond to God? We respond in humility, with fasting, with prayer and coming before His Throne in deep repentance.  We don’t come flippantly, and we don’t come casually or complacently. We don’t come in pride or in arrogance, we come dressed for Court in the Royal Robes of Salvation and with the mantle of sackcloth of humility. We are coming before a holy God, standing at the side of a righteous King who gave His life for our sin—we come by the way of the Cross!

The Emerging Army of God For a New and Intensified Season of Spiritual Warfare!

 

Recently God reminded me of a vision that He gave me at a conference in November 2019; as an indication of a move that He had begun, its progression over 2020, and its present significance in 2021. I was in Ann Arbor Michigan, at Shekinah church, under the leadership of Apostle Barbara Yoder. Dutch Sheets was one of the Speakers and Steve Swanson was leading worship. The name of the conference was ROAR, as we had just entered the decade of pey, which in Hebrew means the mouth. The conference began with a ROAR and ended with a crescendo of HEAVEN’S ROAR uniting with the church’s ROAR. While in worship, I received two visions, that I believe are significant to the revelation that God is presently giving me. In a word I published at that time, I shared:

“The first vision I received was on the Friday night. I have been in many meetings at this church when worship moved spontaneously into prophetic worship. This night surpassed anything I had ever experienced…however, it was far more than an experience; something significant was initiated by Heaven that night and the following day! Worship began on a supernatural note that continued to build in power to an ethereal intensity. The sound continued to build to such a degree that it became difficult to not be completely overwhelmed and overtaken. There was a period that commanded the absolute silence of all voices…there was just the reverberation of the ROAR of sounds. Suddenly the emphasis shifted from worship ascending to Heaven, to Heaven descending and invading the sanctuary!

As I was caught up in the worship, I was taken into a vision; it began with Jesus taking hold of my hand and pulling me into swirls of Glorious blue—this I believe signified revelation. As I passed through the blue I then looked and saw thousands of white horses, each jostling to get into formation. A line was formed stretching as far as the eye could see. Suddenly the scene switched, and I was now seeing the church sanctuary filled with these horses and their riders from wall to wall. On the platform was a great white horse with Jesus sitting on it, with a banner in His hand. A few horses were on either side of Him. He sat there looking, as the room filled up with these heavenly riders.

The scene then suddenly switched again to an open field of green with trees lining the far side; the horses were again in formation galloping as swiftly as the wind. As they passed by me, a white cord suddenly was wrapped around me like a lasso; I found myself lifted high into the air and firmly planted on the back of one of these horses, riding fiercely with this army. Later I saw that the vision was timed perfectly with what was happening during worship. I then understood that the Armies of God—that are the saints of God, along with the angelic hosts of Heaven, were being released together in unison, from the sanctuary into the fields! After the time of awe in the silence, Apostle Barbara stood and released a confirming word to what I was seeing in the spirit, she prophesied:

“There is an army, that is right now being commissioned from Heaven. It is arising with the strength that Moses had, that his strength didn’t fail, and his eyes didn’t go dim. They are arising to the tune of Heaven and as they arise to the tune of the sound of Heaven, they are going to march in a coordinated effort across this land… and God said I am going to deliver the victory into their hands. But you must stand, and you must get into your formation, for God says I am on the move, and I am initiating a brand-new movement. And this movement will not be stopped, for I am releasing and imparting My strength even right now to go beyond what you have ever gone before. For God is putting the sword of Gideon in your hand, the sword of victory, the sword of the Lord and of Gideon! Shout to the Lord! …This is a brand-new day and God is doing a brand-new thing! I am mustering My army. My forces shall not encounter defeat! The Lord says you cannot and shall not be defeated! The Lord says My forces cannot and shall not be defeated, they shall break all the way through to victory, for even now there is a new thing happening and there is a swirling of the Winds of Heaven.

The following day the atmosphere and dynamic of worship continued, and God took me into a second vision: This vision began with the color purple, which I understood meant royalty. I then saw an enormous Throne with a magnificent and ornate golden chair with One seated on it. It was God the Father! He had a large golden crown on His head with jewels embedded in it and a scepter in His hand. I could not see His face. On either side of His throne stood a line of trumpeters with extremely long golden trumpets; they were all blowing with their trumpets lifted high into the air. The line of them on either side went on and on, again, as far as the eye could see. I then noticed that God the Father was not seated on His Throne; He was now standing; I thought this was unusual, but He was observing us intently. I then saw a large fearsome lion swagger out in front of the Throne; He stopped and stood there exuding immense power and strength, His eyes blazing with the intensity of what was about to take place. As the trumpeters blew their horn, I heard the Father

Announce: “IT HAS BEGUN!” At the time I wrote, It now seems clear that we are no longer waiting for God to move—HE HAS MOVED! The people of God are suddenly sensing a RISING in their spirits coming upon them and a shaking of the ground beneath them.” Apostle Barbara then again began to prophesy:

“The trumpets are sounding! I have now commissioned and empowered my remnant. They are arising as a mighty army that cannot be defeated. They are arising, they are advancing, they will break through and victory is in their hands. Let the roar arise and run to the battle!”

God reminded me of this encounter as an indication of the initiation of the move He had begun, and of its significance to this present time. I saw that at the end of 2019, the Army of God was released in preparation for what was about to occur in 2020—the clash and warfare that was coming between the Light and darkness. In the spring of 2020, after Covid-19 had begun, the Body of Christ experienced some Holy moments of integration in fellowship, that brought with it a new sense of unity between many streams of His Ekklesia, and a repositioning for transformation into a new wineskin.  Things intensified throughout the year especially regarding the U.S. election, as saints around the world understood the significance of what the outcome would mean for Christians and the people of the world—and we began to pray and intercede Globally, as a mostly united Body. The Army of God began to emerge and take its place on the frontlines of the battles, as we recognized that the world had entered a new and intensified season of spiritual warfare!

Over the last week God began to bring to light the process and the progression of the training, equipping, and the maturing of His army. He had taken a divided, ragtag army and began to work to transform it into a disciplined, powerful, and supernatural strategic force.  I sensed that He was saying that we were on our way, but not there quite yet!  Through the battles of 2020, we cleaned up in measure, came together and learned to fight as an army. I believe God is pleased with our desire to commit to intercede in newly formed teams and streams, and the willingness to move out into the fields.

God has said in His Word that, “To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven…a time for war and a time for peace.”  God has made provision for His purposes in the season of war, we have entered! This war is not over! It is a comprehensive Campaign, comprised of many battles. The definition of the word campaign in regard to war is, a series of military operations intended to achieve a particular objective, confined to a particular area. We are presently positioned in the midst of this campaign, with many battles to come, as the objective has not yet been achieved!

We have just come through an intensely fierce battle and many are confused about the outcome, with many not understanding the times, and judging things before their time. We cannot afford to become battle weary—there is too much at stake.  Many are weary from the length and intensity of the fight and some have even given up completely. However, my sense is that God has given a measure of rest to become re-energized in His Spirit, and to refocus with fresh revelation and understanding. We cannot be like the Pharisees and the Sadducees who could not discern the times, and what was right before them; Jesus said to them: You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times” (Matt16:3).

These are not days to be compared with the past few decades; we have entered a wholly unique and unusual time, God will use for a reset to His purposes, and to save the world from spinning totally out of control. However, it may get darker before light begins to break through. The word that God keeps highlighting to me is from Isaiah 28, (see previous word on this).

“For the LORD will rise up as at Mount Perazim, He will be angry as in the Valley of Gibeon—That He may do His work, His awesome work, and bring to pass His act, His unusual act.” Isaiah 28:21

Perazim means to breakthrough and to break forth, and the significance of the Valley of Gibeon is that five kings came into collusion to attack the Gibeonites who made peace with Joshua; it is also the place where God intervened with an unusual work and made the Sun stand still for Joshua to finish the defeat of the enemy. We are about to see God again do unusual signs and wonders that will see the defeat of His enemies. I believe God is now saying, for 2021, that it is time to refocus and it is time to get back in the fight! Intercession for the exposure and uncovering of sin, is being answered; intercession for walls to come down is beginning to bear fruit, and we are beginning to see signs of the enemy’s walls of protection begin to crumble. God is about to release His mighty and unusual acts on the Earth as His people continue to press into prayer. It is time to find your rank and get back into position.

Get ready for God to do some unusual things! 2020 began an unusual season where anything can and will happen. We will see supernatural occurrences, and power displays begin in the people of God. Those who are grounded in the love of God, will not be shaken by the shakings of 2021. In 2019, there were many words I wrote, and others also, where God was saying “Get ready!” and “Ready or not here I come!” He was giving us warning that things were about to change; and to be grounded and anchored in Christ as our safety net.

In the 1940’s, during the great Hebrides Awakening, Duncan Campbell said in his book The Price & Power of Revival, “The secret of power is separation from all that is unclean; for me there is nothing so unclean as the liberal views held by some today. We dare not touch them! I am stating what to me is a deep-seated conviction: “Come out from among them and be ye separate…and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you and I will be a Father to you.”

It is interesting that he refers to the liberal views of the 1940’s, I wonder what he would think about them today! Also note that he did not say the secret of salvation, as salvation is a free gift given to those who believe! He said that the secret of power is to separate from uncleaness! It is in repentance and turning away from sin, that our sin is cleansed by the Blood of Jesus, our capacity for Christ then increases, and we receive His power. At salvation God gives us all of Himself but does not necessarily receive all of us! In our repentance, we are then positioned to repent for the sins of the land, to remove the enemy’s platform and defenses. We can then attack with Holy Ghost bombs of the Word of God, specifically released by the Lord to hit the target, possessing the power to destroy the strongholds. The enemy cannot attack where the blood has removed their right to attack!

Jesus Christ is our warrior King and is the Firstborn of many brethren who are fashioned in Him to move out in the power of His Spirit. As rulers having dominion on earth, He gives us access to the councils of heaven, where we receive His Word and enact the will of God. Jesus said that the gates of Hell would not prevail against His Ekklesia, as we are the Lord’s government on earth administrating His will. We are an army created to demolish the enemy’s offensive. Jesus is Lord of all! As He binds the enemy and releases His power in situations—His brethren, the sons of God will do the same. In 2021, our mandate is to occupy and advance the Kingdom of God on Earth. This is not the time to retreat—we are to regroup and advance. As we keep pressing on in the fight, we will see victories in the battles, and in God’s timing, we will win the campaign!

Jesus declared that the world would hate us because it hates Him; it hates what we stand for in His name, as we stand together in Him as one Body. The world is presently resisting Christ’s Lordship, His rule, and His authority over creation. The Ekklesia cannot abandon its mandate and become like the world and get wrapped up in the things of the world—the pride of life, the lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh. We are also not a social club, without power and having little strength. In the Ekklesia of the city of Antioch, the apostles and prophets were fasting, praying, and ministering to God (Acts 13:2). This is our mandate first and foremost—fasting, praying, and ministering to God—the Holy Spirit then shows up with direction!

 Jesus is saying in essence: “All authority is given to Me. You work for Me! Go now and disciple nations, ask of Me and I will give you nations. Go on the offensive and fight. Be the overcomers I created you to be and rule them with a rod of iron as I said to you in Revelations 2:27. This mandate was first given to Me and is now given to you in Me.” God has set His Ekklesia on Earth to be a threat to every crooked governing system.

Sons of God are a Christ sent apostolic company—an apostolic representation of Christ on earth. We are supernatural, eternal beings, born again of the Holy Spirit. We are God’s Kingdom enforcers representing His rulership on earth. Our position is to be seated in Christ, moving, and having our being together in Him. We have been made kings and priests before God—kings rule! As the Ekklesia, we are to be on the offensive, as we have been called to conquer and occupy until He comes. Fraud, theft and deception is apparently the order of the day, and so far they have gotten away with it, however, the scriptures say that the thief will have to return seven-fold what has been stolen!

We are not finished; we are just at the beginning of the fight. We have been learning in the fight to become the Army of God over 2020, and will continue to grow into the supernatural Army of God, moving in sign and wonders. God has a plan! Evil does not get to win! God’s plan is perfect in wisdom and takes into account our victory. His word now to His enemies, again can be found in Isaiah 28 says:

“…I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plummet; The hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, And the waters will overflow the hiding place. Your covenant with death will be annulled, And your agreement with Sheol will not stand; When the overflowing scourge passes through, Then you will be trampled down by it.”

God’s timing is perfect; when He begins to move, everything will shake! Jesus warned that the house built upon lies will not stand…the rains will come, the floods will come, the Wind will blow, the earth will shake, and that house will surely collapse. Jesus also assured us that the house that is built upon the Rock that is Christ our Lord—that house will stand!

Is it Time For The Sons of God?

 

The world is presently swirling in confusion and chaos, and many are people losing hope and are desperate for good news—Good News the Body of Christ is in possession of! We are on the edge of a Great Awakening that will usher in the greatest Harvest the Church has yet seen. The need of the hour is for a Church mobilized to work with the Lord of the Harvest and occupy the Harvest fields.

Over the past week I have been sensing in my spirit that we are on the edge of an event that will bring change causing a shift to the dynamic of this season. I have also been seeing the phrase the sons of God highlighted in my spirit. In Romans chapter 8, Paul speaks of a remarkable event that will come upon the earth in a unique season of time. This supernatural occurrence is the revealing of the sons of God. Paul tells us that this event is underscored by the groaning of the whole earth in a significant and exceptional travail to bring it forth.

The revelation of the sons of God, is an event that God has prepared for, from before time; it is the ultimate fulfillment of His heart’s desire—the chief end of all His work. His transcendent plan! The word reveal is the same as to manifest or to bring forth—to take off the cover, a pulling back of the veil to reveal this marvel. God is about to take off the cover to reveal and to show off His kids to the world and to principalities and powers.

The sons of God, rising out from this generation will walk in the righteous character of the Lord, clothed in the armor of God’s Glory. They are armed with His Power to withstand the demonic assaults on Christianity that is growing and will characterize this decade! It is vital that God has a people prepared and positioned with Divine revelation and understanding of their Call, on this notable hour of His-story. A people equipped to begin to move out in strength, courage, and boldness to do exploits and advance the Kingdom of God on earth!  This generation is responsible to steward the purposes of God in this season they have been assigned to. Yes, God has created and fashioned us for Himself—for His pleasure, however we are also created to accomplish specific tasks in His work, to complete His purposes in Christ. We are told in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” 

God is a strategic Leader and has prepared a strategic task force for this hour; it is comprised of the sons of God and theangel armies of Heaven, united in His divine purpose. He is bringing these forces into divine alignment to administrate His will on Earth. God is working to prepare an apostolic, prophetic government as the leaders who will oversee the crucial work of this hour. The government of God’s house must be established on God’s foundation of order, as a safe place for the harvest.  It would not be conducive to bring large amounts of people into disorder and confusion. God will have fathers and mothers secured in position, conformed to the image of Christ, having both His mind and His heart to oversee and administrate this season.

Jesus said that He was building His Ekklesia on the revelation that He was the Son of God. Paul later received the revelation that he was a son of God when Christ was revealed in him.  He understood that he was being fashioned in the likeness of the Son of God, to move with Him in His power and great authority. Jesus is the Son, and we are the sons of God created in His likeness and conformed to His image. This is the generation that will see the sons of God who have been crucified with Christ, rising in His Resurrection Glory. They are fashioned in fire to withstand the demonic forces unleashed on earth. Our God is a Consuming Fire, and we are being fashioned in His Fire, that we may live and move and have our being in His Presence!

“I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, And the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire; A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, And the books were opened.” Daniel 7:9-10 

There is a great struggle underway between Light and darkness. Recognition that this is our time to shine is vital to becoming the history makers God intended us to be.  This is the hour to prove God by holding Him to His promises and testing Him in His Word. An army manifesting the likeness of Christ, is now being positioned for their release to manifest Christ in the marketplace. This apostolic, prophetic army of God being positioned in its place, must now be ready to go!  It will be said of them as it was said of the early disciples, “These who have turned the world upside down have come here too” (Acts 17:6).Let that be said of you and for your city and your town and your nation, as God’s fiery disciples come to town. The people of God have been entrusted with a weighty and critical mandate for this hour.  Saints living today have been chosen by God and handpicked for such a time. They are called forth to meet the present cry and demand, the Earth is putting on creation, in response to the encroaching defilement of darkness on the land. When the defilement on the land reaches its limit, God will move to cleanse His land. The land occupied by Governments and its state and capitol houses have been defiled in America and many nations, releasing gross deception on the Earth. The land has its limits to evil and according to God’s word will expel  those who continue to defy His  laws: “‘Keep all my decrees and laws and follow them, so that the land where I am bringing you to live may not vomit you out.” Leviticus 20:22

Many unique factors to this hour, are presently converging to create the conditions for a perfect storm, factors such as the brazen collusion of big tech companies and social media to limit free speech; the collusion of leaders of national and supranational governments and corporations to orchestrate dominion over the peoples of the Earth. Massive buy outs of farmland by oligarchs and billionaires to control the world’s food supply, granting them decision over what and how we eat; leaders positioned with the intent to release chaos in societies and produce wars, to give themselves power in the name of bringing peace; the restriction of religious freedoms, particularly Christianity, such as Biden’s latest executive order promoting homosexuality and transgenderism as a key feature of its foreign policy, with the allowance of his Global Equity Fund to blacklist religious leaders who speak in favor of the natural family.

There is a massive power grab underway that is far too great for anyone to fight in the natural—but for God the situation would seem quite bleak and dire! There is but one way to take down these giants, and that is in the Spirit of Almighty God. We are told in Zechariah 4:7, that mountain moving capacity comes not by might nor by power, but by the Holy Spirit. God is looking for the people, who like Joshua and Caleb, believed that they could take down the giants in the land, in the power of God; Caleb said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.”(Num. 13:30).

God alone holds the strategy, the power, and the wisdom to move the mountains in the way of His purposes and destroy the strongholds in His paths. Caleb did not see the mountain as an obstacle before him, but rather a mountain to occupy, he said: “Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the LORD spoke in that day…” (Josh. 14:12).  For Caleb, the mountain of God was magnified far greater than any mountain before him. The Earth is travailing for such courageous governmental leaders, to stand firm and to fight.

Is it time for the revelation of the sons of God? Is the world ready for this revelation? Are we Spiritually ready for God to be revealed in us? For Christ to manifest Himself in us? In the book of Acts, an event occurred that changed the course of Christianity and took it from a little band of believers in a city, to spread like wildfire across the continent of Europe. That event was the beheading of James. Many noteworthy occurrences, of 2020 have moved the saints out of a place of stagnancy to begin to mobilize as an army.  More occurrences may be on the way to move us further into the supernatural ministry of Christ, where we will be called to stand for the Gospel and for God’s purposes in all spheres of society. God is fashioning His army within these fires to be representatives of His Word and His Kingdom.

World changing events will be breaking into and shaking the human situation, and the political and religious situation. No society can endure, whose foundations are built on deception. Truth will break in to shake the weak and rotten foundations. A wind will come that crashes everything. We are at such a precipice. There are forces attempting to build a new world order on foundations of deception and manipulation of norms, with the intention for control and dominance. Every Empire over history has fallen, however, the empire spirit is as active today as it has ever been, seen as recently as in Britain, Germany and China who is now flexing its muscles. This attempt will fall before it even gets off the ground. God will not allow His will to be side-lined by demonic actors in the political realm. He is positioning His people for a a great awakening on the horizon.

God is preparing a clean vessel to pour Himself into, a vessel fashioned from a God possessed people. Secured foundations and the intensity of our desire for God, reveals our capacity to contain Him. The people of the Hebrides, prayed fervently for a long time to see the glory of God and revival in their land; Duncan Campbell the main leader in this significant revival, said in regard to this:

“How they longed and how they prayed and how they waited and how they cried, “Oh God rend the heavens and come down,” and all the time God was dealing with them, and the process of cleansing went on until the moment came when angels and archangels looking over the battlements of glory cried, “God the vessels are clean, the miracle can happen now.” I believe that with all my heart; it is the deep conviction of my soul that they are ever gazing over the battlements of glory and waiting for a prepared people. It is one thing to shout it, it is one thing to sing it, it is one thing to talk about revival, but give me a people on their faces, seeking to be rightly related to God, and when that happens, we will soon know the impact of God-realisation in our country.” (taken from The Price & Power of Revival).

If our desire is to see the power of God break into this realm, we cannot afford to be people who say they fear the Lord, but serve other gods. intentionality about pursuing God in His truth, in His beauty, in His holiness, in His righteousness, is the altar upon which the fire falls. Jesus became sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God (2 Cor. 5:21). Let us become a people recognizable to Him as a place of habitation by becoming a living sacrifice for His glory. A fresh revelation of Christ in Glory, in His majesty, will cause every knee to bend and declare that He is Lord.  Lord give us such a revelation. Give us such a desire to dwell in your Holy Fire. Let the blood of Jesus destroy every sin and bondage that keeps us bound to a life of carnality, that we would cry out as Isaiah did when he received a vision of the Lord:

“I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.” Isaiah 6:1-5

How to Prepare for the Changing Times!

 

The notable year of 2020 has ended and we have now entered the year 2021, now gearing up to be another notable year! It will now become increasingly important to be positioned securely in Christ, positioned in His truth, and positioned resolutely within a mindset of supernatural courage. Throughout the year 2020, ninety-nine percent of the world was caught off guard by the rollout of an agenda of evil planned over decades now called the Great Reset! This is not a conspiracy theory! Legitimate, sound sources of information are readily available for any who take the time to do their research.

One of the reasons information on this demonic agenda is now easier to access, is their scheme is to brazenly disclose their plans, while working to brainwash the masses into believing that what they are seeing, and hearing is not real. Through all forms of media, they force feed blatant and outrageous propaganda that defies all logic or common sense, and in a spirit of aggressive intimidation, threaten any who question, resist or dissent with cancellation—cancellation of your reputation, your job, your business—essentially your life!

It is not my intention to come across as a doomsayer, as I have full, absolute, and complete faith and confidence in God to accomplish His will on Earth, and I do know how the story ends—God is victorious, He reigns!  However, I do feel very strongly that both Christians and unbelievers need to be awakened, educated, and armed with the information to make important decisions that will affect their lives. We cannot sing kumbaya, hide from the truth, and pretend all is well—if it is not! This is pure folly! Rather, the important song we should be singing is “It is well with my soul.”

Now, more than ever, the times require bold and courageous leaders who know their God, are ready to do exploits, who are not afraid to speak truth. Leaders whose intention are not to simply tickle the ears of their people! Not too many were seeing ahead to these days, and were working with intentionality to prepare, equip and mobilize a generation of warriors for these times. A well known ministry out of Kansas City, is one of the few that I am aware of that were focused on warning of the encroaching evil agenda that was coming on the earth, while working urgently to instill the light of Christ and great faith to a generation of hundreds of thousand entrusted to them by God—many who tuned in online or attended their conferences. These were men and women—a vast majority from the younger generation, being prepared to lay down their lives—even as martyrs if necessary; many prepared as leaders and forerunners who chart the path ahead.

My intention is not to condemn or judge others who may have had another mandate from God, but this type of boot camp training has been sorely lacking in the Church. Too many, including myself sometimes, have been focused on the Glory side of Isaiah 60, while not heeding the warning of the coming deep darkness in the same passage. We have now entered a decade and a new era where the need of the hour is for a new breed of saints and leaders having discernment, possessing a Davidic anointing of the fearless warrior, and a Joseph anointing, embedded with God’s blueprint strategies for what to do in this new God dynamic—one that we have not yet experienced.  Many such saints have been in the fire for decades being prepared.

“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”  Genesis 50:20 

Twenty-seven years ago, God entered my life in an overly dramatic way and began to show me many things personally—for my life and my family’s life. I was very fearful as He also made it clear to me that He was returning, and I thought that he meant possibly that week! That week, however, has stretched into twenty-seven years; I still do not claim to understand the timings of God, but I do know that we are much closer to His return than we think—however many years that may be—and time is moving very quickly!

At that time one of the pictures the Lord instilled in my mind was of a hurricane where He was positioned in the Eye of the storm. There was absolute peace and stillness in the eye, however, surrounding the eye was a wide ring of swirling destruction. As the Eye moved closer, so did the ring of destruction. The swirling destruction represented the frantic efforts of the demonic to prevent the movements of Jesus. At that time, the Lord began to show me several things that I was instructed to research; with all the information I acquired, and in my immaturity as a new Christian, I felt very overwhelmed and alone. I also did not have the character and spiritual wholeness of soul to withstand the enemy’s assaults on my mind, my life, and my son’s life. After about seven years the Lord had me lay down all of it; I put all my research on a shelf, and I forgot about it. Until 2020! Little by little God has begun to bring certain things back to mind that He had shown me at that time.

God absolutely sees the end from the beginning and His plan is unfolding—a plan that will now lead His people into a decade of notable breakthroughs on many fronts. This year will be another year of turmoil and shaking; nevertheless, with God it is possible for His people to prosper in the midst of turmoil and persecution! Despite all that the enemy will be rolling out, the Church is coming into an unprecedented time, where the Son of God will be revealed in and through a prepared people—a people whose will is the Lord’s will! A people called to not only show the marvelous virtues of Christ—Love, mercy, and compassion—but also to reveal His great power in the earth! Paul expected to see the power of God in operation in God’s people. He said:

“But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord wills, and I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the power. For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.” 1 Corinthians 4:20 

The power of God and the supernatural is about to be revealed in and through the saints, making His disciples distinguishable on Earth. Paul said he would be able to recognize an authentic follower of Christ by the power, for the Kingdom of God was in power.  He made an astonishing statement in Galatians 1:15-16 that reveals the distinctive mark of a life in full surrender to God.

But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood.”

The Greek word reveal in this verse is apokalupto and means to take of the cover and to disclose. The world reveal is also defined as: to make known to others something previously unknown or secret; to cause or allow something to be seen; to make something known to humans by divine or supernatural means.

Paul said that God was pleased to reveal Christ in him! God took the cover of Paul off, and revealed the Christ in Him. Its important to get this! God supernaturally caused the indwelling Christ in all His fullness and power to be known, and seen in Paul, by others.  God is about to remove the covering and allow Himself to be clearly seen in us, and His great power revealed through us. Others will see what they have not seen in us previously! God’s manifest Presence is about to change everything!

Dwight L. Moody, the nineteenth century evangelist, was praying for an encounter with God and to receive a baptism of His power.  He did encounter God while secluded alone in a room for hours and left that room filled with the power from on high. He said that the day after this experience, God revealed Himself to him; his preaching remained the same but countless souls became saved. That is the power and Presence of God—not only indwelling a life but resting upon that life in power—the Son of God revealed in a man or a woman! Such a life is empowered by remaining faithful, yielding all to the living God in full surrender, while maintaining an expectancy for what He is about to do in and through us!

As we prepare to move out in the power of God, it will be important to also move with great wisdom, fully aware the dynamic of the times we are moving into. Times have changed and the challenges are exceptional. As we press into God for direction, He will give each one direction and strategy unique to their call and mandate. During a recent time of prayer, I was a bit startled with a word I received from the Lord in Luke 22:34, here, Jesus asked His disciples, if when He instructed them not to take money, or a bag with them, when He sent them out into the villages to preach, if they had need of anything. Their answer was that they had need of Nothing. He then said to them:

“But now,  he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For the things concerning Me have an end.” Luke 22:35-36

In this passage, Jesus’ stark departure from His normal stance on peace and non-retaliation took me by surprise, especially as within this very same chapter He rebukes Peter for cutting of the soldier’s ear, and said to him, “Those who live by the sword would die by the sword.” In researching commentaries about this passage, I found a variety of views. Some took it as a call and a right to take up arms, while others believed he was only speaking figuratively. I believe every individual must hear for themselves a word from the Lord as to what they are responsible to do in the matter of arms. People live under different circumstances, having differing calls and direction from God. I do not sense God leading me to get armed in the natural, however, I have friends who hold to both views.

Whichever view is taken, what is clear is that Jesus was warning that times were about to change, and was instructing them how to be ready for it!  Professor Moyer Hubbard states in an article related to this passage: “Jesus is warning his followers—in his characteristically attention-riveting manner—that in the coming days they will need to be prepared for a spiritual battle like they have never before experienced, and it will require a radically different mindset and approach.”

In this passage Jesus was warning His disciples that they were about to move into a season of warfare with danger ahead. So, what was the crisis that the disciples had to be prepared for, that would change everything? We are shown, within the very same chapter and shortly after he made that statement, that Jesus was betrayed, arrested, and later crucified. After this everything did change for His followers—the persecution began, Peter denied Jesus three times in fear; the disciples began to meet in secret, and Paul began a violent campaign against the followers of Christ.

Could Jesus now be giving us a warning, and sounding an alarm that things are about to change for Christians and for Christianity? It is important to now have understanding and discern the times regarding the conflicting movements of revival, awakenings, coupled with persecution. This decade will reveal the dichotomy of the two existing realities of darkness and light co-existing on the world sphere. On one hand we prepare for the worst and on the other we expect God’ absolute best to breakthrough in our lives, and His ability to reveal His Son in us to rise and face the challenges—while also revealing His peace, joy and love in all we do!

In a recent article that I wrote, I shared that history has shown that times of great revivals and times of increased salvations, came usually in volatile times surrounded by persecution. In my last word God revealed that 2021 would be a year of darkness and of great light, with the darkness bearing fruit exponentially and the light and Glory also increasing exponentially and bearing big supernatural fruit!

In the day of Harvest, and the Day of His Power, it is understandable that there will be battles as the enemy will move to protect their prey fiercely and aggressively. However, God declares in His Word that the prey will be taken from the enemy, that they must release their captives (Is. 49:25).

This leads us to the question of how then do we prepare and what must we do? How do we stand and face the challenges ahead? First and foremost, we must be firmly anchored in Christ! Second, we must trust and have confidence in His ability to guide and direct us in every situation we may face. Third, we must intentionally grow in our understanding of God’s supernatural Power, His ability to save and rescue the lost, and then begin to move out in this power. Fourth we must overcome our fears and not be afraid to take the risks of obedience to His directions. Fifth, be firmly planted in and accountable to a Church or a group or house church, with those you can trust, having both wisdom and courage.

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

Brace For Impact & Breakout in 2021!

 

Over the first half of 2020 I wrote many articles with revelations related to rockets and launching. In September I wrote another related word on the second stage of a launch, where the rocket separates in space and releases the dead weight of excess baggage no longer required. With each time that the Lord has spoken to me about a launch I assumed it to be an end in itself, until God added to it and showed me another part to the process. So, as I was praying this morning, when I heard the Lord say, “IT’S TIME TO LAND THIS THING,” I was shocked, as I saw that He was again referring to the rocket! I then heard The Lord say, “BRACE FOR IMPACT!”

I then began to see the entire year of 2020 as process in a means of transportation God has used to move us from one place to another, from an old wineskin to a new, heavenly, supernatural Kingdom dynamic modeled after Christ. Sometimes when we are too close to something it is hard to see the full view of it. With all the turmoil of 2020 we can wrongly assume that the enemy has had the upper hand, until we step back to see the panoramic view of an awesome move of God in the works. This move is encapsulated in a present work comprised of numerous facets that will ultimately see the people of God catapulted into a new dynamic—to an atmospheric change of Glory.

God is about to LAND what began at Passover 2020 when the Body of Christ entered the capsule at lockdown. Lift off took place at Pentecost with a submitted, humble and prepared people, and the separation of the vessel occurred at Rosh Hashanah through to the Feast of Tabernacles when there was great wave of repentance, and we were admonished to leave behind everything of the past that could not enter the new. God is now saying the capsule is about to land and we must brace for impact.

Prepared For 2021

What are the dynamics of impact as the capsule containing the sons of God enters the year 2021? Impact will be the collision of God—THE BREAKER at the head of His armies of Heaven and earth, smashing through the demonic wall of defense, erected to protect the enemy’s plots and present agenda. However, the enemy will not be able to withstand the dunamis power of God embedded within the Glory of the Presence of Almighty God.

 I keep seeing a large military aircraft containing thousands upon thousand of soldiers landing, and as the aircraft lands a large panel lowers and opens and these thousands of supernatural anointed saints begin to rush out armed and ready to fulfill their assignments.

2021 will be a volatile year where the Kingdom of light and righteousness will move against the encroaching darkness. It will be a year of BREAKOUT into the fullness of maturity for the saints prepared for the times. It will be a year of BREAKOUT into the HIGH CALL OF GOD, that I spoke of on my last show, and a BREAKOUT into the supernatural, signs wonders and miracles we have seen in the book of Acts, where angels actively and openly minister alongside us. It will be an explosive year where great courage is needed to arise in the people of God—the year for the Sons of God to appear. 2021 will be a year where the people of God must stand resolute, grounded securely in the faithfulness and love of God, as the darkness will resist us at every turn. But God!

2021 A Year of Light & Darkness

We are presently in the year 5781 on the Jewish calendar, ending next year at Rosh Hashanah—81 is the product of 9 x 9. 2021 will therefore be a year characterized by the number nine. The number nine in Hebrew in represented by the letter Tet and is a number that depicts birthing and great fruit, for example, the nine fruits of the Spirits, and the nine gifts of the Spirit.Tet can, however, represent both good and evil—the possibilities of both in man. When yoked to God, the pictogram of Tet is shown as a man crowned with the sword of the Spirit, bowed in submission to God. In rebellion to God, Tet is revealed as a serpent having a head and tail (see hebrew4christians.com). The number nine is greatly revered in the dark realm, in Freemasonry, the Kabballah and numerology. In Freemasonry 81 is seen as a sacred number because it is the square of nine which is the square of three. The number 81 is even feared in some instances because it is produced by the multiplication of the sacred and revered nine.

2021 A Year of the Harvest of Light & Dark

81 carries with it the concept of exponential fruit bearing—both light and darkness will therefore be releasing the fullness of their harvest in the year 5781 in all spheres.

“The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” Matthew 13:28-29

The first time Tet appears in the Bible is in Genesis 1:4

“And God saw the Light, THAT IT WAS GOOD and God DIVIDED THE LIGHT FROM THE DARKNESS.”

The harvest of Light and of darkness in the year of 81, will be explosive! In 2021, as God arises to scatter His enemies, the distinction between good and evil in man will begin to be clearly seen. The dividing line will be visible to all, and the choice given on which to take your stand. I believe God is now saying, “Choose carefully with whom you stand!” He is saying to His people, “It is our time now,get ready for the future!”

For God’s people 2021 will bring forth the long-awaited and expected fruit—a harvest from all we have sown over the past decades and a great Harvest of souls. However, the Harvest will come in with great persecution against Christians and the Word of God. We have been ‘carrying’ our load of treasure and light for a very long time, and are about to supernaturally bring forth—this is for both young and old, male and female, rich and poor. The Lord is saying to you:

“Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. Isaiah 60:1

2021 The year Joseph is Released

God sent Joseph ahead of his brothers on an apostolic mission to prepare the world for a time of great famine. 2021 will be the year a Joseph people will breakout of prison; these ones are refined in the fire and have become storehouses full of treasure prepared for the hour. What the enemy meant for evil, God meant for good! Messengers will arrive calling them to get washed and dressed in preparation to go before the King. Its time for Joseph to BREAKOUT into destiny.

“He sent a man before them—Joseph—who was sold as a slave. They hurt his feet with fetters, He was laid in irons. Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the LORD tested him.” Psalms 105:16-19

These Josephs will be released because they have been armed with knowledge and they know what to do. They will be released and given blueprints for city strategies and for the marketplace. They come armed with innovation and inventions to solve problems and the challenges the Earth will face. It will be said of them:

“Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom is the Spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. Genesis 41:38-39

Joshua Moves Forward

In 2021 we will be moving from a Moses era into a Joshua era. Joshua’s will now move to the forefront armed with insight in the art of Kingdom warfare, and strategies for the battles ahead. The Lord is displeased that truth has fallen. Much of the present war is over the truth, as deception reigns in all spheres.

“Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. So, truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him That there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor…” Isaiah 59:14-16

Joshua leaders and intercessors will be given tactics for how to bring truth to Harvest and to establish cities of refuge. They will be anointed in communication and influence to override the deception of the main street media, and they will occupy secured positions in the media mountain.

        2021 Will be the Year Hannah Gives Birth

Hannah suffered hard and long in her inability to give birth, to give her husband a child. Because of this she was ridiculed by Peninnah, her husband’s other wife, and lived under the stigma of shame. However, her husband, a picture of our Bridegroom King, loved her very much. The scriptures say that he fed her the double portion because of his great love for her.

“And whenever the time came for Elkanah to make an offering, he would give portions to Peninnah his wife and to all her sons and daughters. But to Hannah he would give a double portion, for he loved Hannah, although the LORD had closed her womb.” 1Samuel 1:5

In her grief and burden to give to her husband a child, Hannah travailed in intercession before the Lord, in the Temple of God, and she was heard! Hannah was chosen to give birth to a new Era, to give birth to the answers for the deep darkness of sin Israel had fallen into. Hannah gave birth to Samuel, the priest and prophet of God, the one who would return Israel to righteousness and anoint David, God’s chosen king. Because Hannah has been in travail, she will give birth in 2021 to the purposes of God for this hour. Hannah has been reserved for the year of 81the year of exponential fruit—the year to give birth to the notable, historic and Earth transforming purposes of God!

“Before she was in labor, she gave birth; Before her pain came, she delivered a male child. Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children. Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the LORD. “Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your God.” Isaiah 66:9


 

THE LAUNCH OF ASCENSION INTO A NEW ERA!

 

September 18th Rosh Hashanah marked the beginning of the new Jewish Year 5781, that will take us into the year 2021 on the Gregorian Calendar.  Normally, at this time, I would look into the Hebrew name and definition of the number one, however, before doing so, I immediately heard and understood from the Lord that the number one represented a beginning—but of something that is brand new, that had not been done previously—that it represented the initiation or launch of a New Era, with new endeavors reserved specifically for this time.  It is impossible to predict and figure out God as He so loves to bless His people with surprises and suddenlies!  WE ARE ABOUT TO EXPERIENCE A SUDDENLY OF GOD! I sensed the Lord saying that for many, this Rosh Hashanah will see doors opening suddenly to initiatives and strategies kept hidden in the heart of God, reserved specifically for this milestone of history.

Even as the shakings, the rumblings and the spiritual warfare in the earth continue, the saints of God will begin to occupy the places reserved for them for this hour of history. As obstacles are removed, and the way parts before them, the saints will begin to step up to stand in new levels of supernatural increase and boldness, that works to secure key positions in Christ’s power and authority—THE SUPERNATURAL IS ABOUT TO BECOME NORMAL. For this notable hour, Heaven has succeeded in procuring for the people of God, key job positions, business opportunities, new buildings and home purchases, purposed to significantly impact God’s initiatives to turn the tide of History.

Many will now receive unexpected phone calls, divine appointments and fresh downloads of ideas, supported by the ways and means to get the job done. God’s supernatural favor is now descending upon His people to clear the path ahead. God is about to move to exceed our expectations beyond what we could have imagined our thought! Divine Hutzpah will now come upon the saints to trigger them to take the bold steps that are needed, steps that they never thought they could or would take.

Over the earlier part of this year, during the time between the Passover Feast and Pentecost, the Lord inspired me to lead three prayer thrusts all characterized by rocket launches—the Space Force actually lunched a rocket at that time, without us having prior knowledge of that.  At the time, God did birth and launch some specific initiatives in our Ministry, establishing us for the season ahead.  Passover and Pentecost 2020 were especially powerful, a time where we saw God at work building enduring relationships in the Body of Christ—most significantly with Messianic Jews. The Holy Spirit was preparing the foundation and setting us on the path for the Body to become a Bride and the One New Man Jesus died to bring forth.

While working on this word, God reminded me of this time and the revelations of the rockets being launched—the implication was that we were now once again launching in this new Hebraic year of 1581. My question to the Lord was then, as we had already launched at Pentecost what was the significance to us now during this Fall Feast season?  The Lord then gave me a vision of a rocket that had already launched, breaking apart in space.  The lower half broke away and fell back to earth, as the other half ascended into the Heavenly realms. I saw that this was a continuation of what began at Pentecost. The Lord then began to impart the significance of what this meant in this new beginning and His plans for this New Era.

To comprehend the revelation, it is important to understand the reason why rockets break apart in space. In researching this I discovered that rockets need a vast amount of fuel to overcome Earth’s gravity, stored in two or three sections of the rocket. When a section has used up all its fuel it then separates to get rid of the dead weight, that falls back to earth or gets burned up in the atmosphere.

The Lord equated this with His present work and began to show me that A SEPARATION WAS COMING. The Body of Christ had burned up the fuel of the last season, that had work to bring us this far! We are now primed to shed the dead weight of the garbage we have been carrying for possibly decades even centuries. This is the dead weight of carnality, and the things and ways of the world that have no part in Christ! These are things we cannot take with us into the higher places of the supernatural God intends to take us.

The Love of the world keeps us earthbound and causes us to be weighed down, tied to things that count for nothing; things that are temporary and have no place in eternity. The love of the world sets us up for disappointment when things don’t turn out the way we expected, as God is resisting our sin nature.

“You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?” declares the LORD Almighty. “Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with your own house.”  Haggai 1:9

“Don’t set the affections of your heart on this world or in loving the things of the world. The love of the Father and the love of the world are incompatible. For all that the world can offer us—the gratification of our flesh, the allurement of the things of the world, and the obsession with status and importance—none of these things come from the Father but from the world. This world and its desires are in the process of passing away, but those who love to do the will of God live forever.”   1 John 2:15-17 TPT

God began to highlight some of the baggage that we are carrying that must be left behind on earth; baggage that belongs to the world and has no place in Christ. God is examining our hearts and motivations, whether we are being driven by our desire for position and recognition or by our desire for His Glory and His Kingdom purposes. Many in the Church including leaders, in their drive to be first and the most successful, have wasted precious time and energy, debating each other, preaching to each other, fighting over pet doctrines, majoring on minor issues and tearing down precious leaders God has anointed—all of this, while we are living in a most diabolical time of history and the world is desperate and in need of salvation.

The enemy has used many things to divide and weaken us as a Body, and to distract us from our work in the most critical hour of history.  Our strength and the power to impact the world and drive back the forces of darkness will only come from our union and decision to stand together and support each other. We then become a force backed by the power of God.

Philippians 2:1-5 says “Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ…then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.”

This is the nature of the One we serve that must become ours, and it grows in our lives as we choose the way of the Cross!  It is freedom to recognize the excellence of someone else’s work; to support and celebrate them! So many don’t understand this God quality of becoming a part of someone else’s success; this is an absolute necessity now—the need for partnership in the work to advance the Kingdom of God on Earth. 

For those that choose to let go of the dead weights of control and carnality, to break away from the things characteristic of the world, THIS WILL BECOME THE ERA OF SUPERNATURAL POWER AND MIRACLES, of the exploration of new frontiers and grand possibilities found in Christ alone! These sons and daughters will be launched and ascend to the heights of benevolence in Christ in the Heavenly places! They will be given access to the courts of heaven; they will receive, revelation, understanding and intelligence and the wisdom to know what they are to do in these times. The word of God in their mouths will be released with fire to set the enemy’s plans ablaze and destroy their strongholds.

In the new season now beginning, God will move powerfully to bless and support those who support others, and who build up rather than tear down. These will begin to experience the abundance of the favor of God working to establish them in strong eternal partnership in this time. The Heart of Christ is to bless, expand and build the people of God.  The Wind of the Holy Spirit is coming into the House of God bringing fresh clean air. For many, this will be a New Era of unity, of honor, of building lasting and enduring partnerships—the catalyst that ushers in the commanded blessing of God upon His people and for this decade.

“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:14-19

Glory Zones

Based on the last word I published—Systems Deployed,  I would like to continue to look at the principle and blueprint of Systems in terms of Apostolic Hubs, or what I refer to as Glory Zones! These are protected Cities of Refuge & Cities of defense—functioning on systems established by God. They are being created to stand against demonic assault in the completing era of things! These systems, operate with precision within a God established leadership structure and within order.

The definition of the word system provides insight into God’s intention—a set of things working together as parts of a mechanism or an interconnecting network—working together is the key to their effectiveness. Systems can be represented within a House, a City or an Army; all are facets of the end-time systems God is setting in place within Glory Zones across the Earth that are directed toward His ends, set to accomplish His will in these times.

Systems running together create synergy! Synergy is defined as:—THE COMBINED POWER OF A GROUP OF THINGS WHEN THEY ARE WORKING TOGETHER, THAT IS GREATER THAN THE TOTAL POWER ACHIEVED BY EACH WORKING SEPARATELY (Cambridge Dictionary).

Greater impact is therefore created when we work together as opposed to independently of each other! The point is there is structure and authority within systems, producing productivity and resilience! The parts within a system must agree and work together in a unity of purpose—God’s purpose, within God’s blueprint, with God’s end in view.

The ability to function within the constraints of Godly character is needed to receive direction. This produces the stability that comes through an understanding of being under authority. God is preparing Glory Hubs and Zones having this dynamic, through which He can birth His purposes in the Earth.

This era will be characterized by intense warfare as the enemies of God align themselves to oppose God and resist the moves of God, as they will not easily give up a billion souls easily. We are presently in the travail to birth a new era in our history, and collectively we are God’s birthing vessel.

God is presently showcasing the difference between darkness and Light. This is working to produce great division and a sifting in all sectors of society and within the Church. The Church will be attacked both from within and from without. It will be a time when great wisdom will be needed in our warfare, a time to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves (Matt. 10:16).

An outstanding feature of the coming apostolic Glory Zones will therefore be defense. Warriors will stand as sentinels at the gates of these cities. They will be given intelligence, wisdom and discernment to watch, guard and protect:

“In that day the LORD of hosts will be for a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty To the remnant of His people, For a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, And for strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.” Isaiah 28:6

The Significance of God’s ordained Leadership Structure

There is much to be understood of God’s ways in the bible account of Rehoboam, having great relevance to these times. King Solomon had died, and the people asked Rehoboam the new king, to lighten the burden upon them and they would serve him. Rather than taking the counsel of the elders, Rehoboam took the counsel of the young men he grew up with and chose the keep the heavy yoke on the people. However, a curious statement is then made:

“So the king did not listen to the people; for the turn of events WAS FROM GOD, that the LORD might fulfill His word…So Israel has been in rebellion against the house of David to this day” 2 Chronicles 10:1, 19.

The people chose to reject Rehoboam’s rule, however, God saw their rejection and departure as rebellion! Rehoboam joined with the tribe of Benjamin and prepared to make war with Israel and their leader Jeroboam. He assembled one hundred and eighty thousand men from Judah who were chosen as warriors to fight against Israel (v. 1). However, God then sent an important word to Rehoboam that is relevant to us today:

“You shall not go up or fight against your brethren! Let every man return to his house, for this thing is from Me.2 Chronicles 11:4

The kingdom became divided and entered a state of war. Jeroboam took ten tribes under his rule, and because he was afraid of his people going up to Jerusalem to worship God, as ordained by God, he established his own places of worship, appointed his own priests and began worshiping idols (v.15).

But Rehoboam obeyed God, returned to Jerusalem and began to build cities of defense! These cities were built in Judah, which means praise, and in Benjamin where Jerusalem was established as God’s ordained place of worship and resting place.

God Equips & Provides for His purposes!

These cities represent fortified strongholds armed with Kingdom intelligence, strategic in spiritual warfare and intercession—they fight not against flesh or against their brothers and sisters. God is in the midst of such cities, they are therefore supplied with everything that is needed:

“Rehoboam fortified the strongholds, and put captains or leaders in them, and stores of food, oil, and wine. Also in every city he put shields and spears, and made them very strong.” 2 Chronicles 11:11

God will have an abundance of spiritual food in these cities, spiritual food but also natural food. God will always make sure His children are fed. These cities will be rich in the Word of God. Teaching and training will play a foundational part in the building up of these Glory Zones.

The Oil represents the anointing. The anointing will allow the gifts to flow in these cities with Divine wisdom. The gifts to teach, preach, heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons and perform supernatural acts, will function with power. There will be an anointing on the servants of the Lord in these cities surpassing anything we have seen as the sons of God dwell there. These Apostolic Hubs are God’s powerhouses or energy plants supplying power to regions. They will be storerooms filled with a sufficient supply of oil.

These Hubs will also have an abundant supply of wine. God has been saving His best wine for last. He is preparing to serve a wine to the world, not tasted before. This wine has been ageing for two thousand years. The church has come across with mostly judgment, condemnation, internal fighting and strife. We have left a bad taste in people’s mouths. The people of God in the last days will serve the pure undiluted wine of the Holy Spirit to bringing joy, refreshing and the love of God to a parched and desperate world.

Shields Up! Faith United!

I heard the Lord say, “Shields up!” Shields in these cities speak of faith creating a united front and wall of defense. Strong faith will be characteristic of these cities. They will be inhabited by people who are mighty in faith, who believe all things are possible with God. These shields will be a defense against any attacks from the enemy. These cities will provide shelter for the army of God, who will be made ready, trained and equipped to march forward into the battle. These are men and women of courage who fear nothing but their God.

The principle to be gleaned from this account of Rehoboam, is that it was ultimately a test from God to reveal who would submit to His ordained authority and divine order.

A sifting was taking place in preparation for the establishment of Glory Hubs—cities with foundations. Those who stayed, passed the test, and showed by their actions that their love for God and obedience to God surpassed their own desire for comfort. This is a hard lesson to learn but God is looking for warriors and leaders of character to carry His authority.

In wartime, there are grave consequences to lack of submission and order. Even so, many will choose the way of pride and split away from the protection of God’s plan. God resists the proud! God is knocking at the gates of cities and on the doors of churches wherever man’s control, independence and self-sufficiency has forced Him out. Within the Glory Zones of the faithful and obedient, this song will be sung:

“We have a strong city; God will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks. Open the gates that the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.” Isaiah 26:1-2

God’s Prepared Storehouses

We have been in a season of abundance—an abundance of revelation, of the prophetic word, of teaching of worship songs. It has been almost impossible to keep up with the CD’s, the messages, the videos, and the books—however the treasures of God are being stored within His people as we move toward a season of ‘mean and lean’ in the Earth. This does not seem to fit with the picture of great revival and great harvest. Yet, in examining Church history, beginning with the book of Acts, we see that most outpourings have been surrounded (before, during or after), by great storms, persecution, or economic woes.

Great harvest and times of abundance do not seem to happen together. When people have everything they need, they are blind to the fact they are in need of God, and of being saved. Tremendous Church growth is usually found in the hard times and in times of persecution. People search for God in desperate times. The greatest harvest is coming into the church right now under present persecution and chaos.

Those that have been filling up during the abundance of God’s River being poured out, will have plenty of food, wine and oil during the times of famine. In Joseph’s day, “The famine was over all the face of the earth” (Gen. 41:56).During the years of plenty, Joseph stored food in Cities: “He laid up in every city the food of the fields which surrounded them.” (Gen. 41:48)

These are the cities of defense and refuge, where the food, oil and the wine are now being stored. God has been preparing ‘Joseph’s and ‘Joseph’ Churches to be storehouses, those who have been in pits and prisons, misunderstood and persecuted as part of their preparation, who will become the administrators of food in the time of famine. God has been storing food in churches, leaders, and ministries in cities all over the world. IN JOSEPH’S DAY, THE WORLD HAD TO COME TO JOSEPH TO GET FOOD—the only place food was available!

We have entered times of shakings on the Earth, but it is in times of judgment that the Earth learns righteousness as Isaiah 26:19 states: “For when Your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.”In these desperate times, amid the darkness, the world will be drawn to the Light and Glory of God upon His people who will, “…shine as lights in the world.”

Lift Off!

Over the last five months I have written many words about rockets, thrusts and launching; all related to a word God gave me in January 2019, that May 2020 would be THE LAUNCH.  I had no idea what that meant or what 2020 would look like. However, this year in March He said to me 3, 2, 1 lift off!  May was the month of LIFT OFF! I knew that Pentecost 2020 was going to be very significant in the movements of God, that would shift His people into a new dynamic of Church over the next decade. The people of God would be launched from an earthly dynamic into a Heavenly and supernatural one, with an added element imbued to their message—the leadership of the Lord, His voice and His Presence! The Commander of the armies of Heaven was coming to take over!

I was very surprised when I learned that SpaceX was scheduled to launch its first rocket into space on the weekend of the Feast of Pentecost, on the 30th, the day between when Messianic Jews and Gentile believers celebrate Pentecost. This was historic, as the first such launch in nine years. I knew that this could not be a coincidence, that it was a sign and confirmation from the Lord of LIFT OFF! However, I was disappointed when I discovered that the Rocket was named Falcon and the part that separated and went into space was called Dragon!  I was puzzled why, if this was a sign, God would allow it to be called these names.  As I was praying about this, I heard the Lord say check the definition.  I then discovered that a falcon was a bird of prey that killed with its beak as opposed to hawks and eagles that kill with their feet, a revelation of the power of the voice in the decade of the voice!  I was also surprised to learn of two meanings for the word dragon that I was not aware of; the first was, a formidable and fierce woman, and the second was a soldier armed with a musket—a weapon.

I began to see and understand a few things with the Lord’s leading. The fierce and formidable women represented the rising and launch of the Lord’s Bride as seen in Revelation’s chapter twelve. The woman in this chapter represented the global Body of Christ crowned by twelve stars representing Israel. The Man Child given birth in verse five is not a baby, as the Greek term uihos is used, but but rather it is the birth of the mature Son of Jew and Gentile in union with Christ, thereby producing the One New Man of His ultimate intention, brought forth for this hour!

The Soldier armed with a musket represents this One New Man. The history of the name musket comes from a time when small canons would be given names of birds of prey like the Falconet; the Italians borrowed this idea with the moschetto—the name of a sparrow hawk that later became the musket rifle.

In these two definitions—the Woman and the Soldier, I believe that God is signifying that war in the Heavens has begun. In Revelation 12:3 the red dragon of satan makes its appearance:

And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.”

The dragon’s seven heads represent its governmental rule over the earth. The dragon knows its time is short and is threatened by the birth of this great army of sons and daughters of God, now being released, and attempts to devour them at their inauguration. War has begun and it is time to fight! We fight on our knees; we fight with our mouths like the Falcon under-girded with the power and authority of our King and Commander.

 “And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought…” Revelation 12:7

Satan’s time is short and is presently releasing chaos on the earth; the forces of darkness will not easily release a billion souls, however verse 11 declares that the people of God overcome and win! God has His own Falcon and Dragon released to go on the offensive to devour to release their prey.

“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.”

God’s definition of short, when it comes to time, is not necessarily ours, there is much yet to be done and a great Harvest to reap that could take us many years in the future, however we are on a trajectory to the return of Christ and have been given a window of time to work.

Israel present existence in the land is a sign that we are in these last days.  We sometimes forget this, but their return was just over 70 years ago, the fulfillment of many prophecies in scripture related to the last days. Israel in the land is preparation for the return of Jesus, whose feet will one day stand on the Mount of olives.

As Jewish and Gentile believers, have through humility, began the process of coming into a true and authentic union over this past Passover through to Pentecost; that union became the oil providing the thrust for LIFT OFF at this Pentecost!

Passover to Pentecost was preparation for the Launch; the LIFT OFF has taken place! I heard the Lord say, “Now boldly go where no man has gone before!” Let us rise to this historic moment with boldness and with courage to serve the Living God and be reminded that he said in Isaiah, that no strongman can withstand the power of the Lord and keep His Harvest prisoner:

“But thus says the LORD: “Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, And the prey of the terrible be delivered; For I will contend with him who contends with you, And I will save your children.”  Isaiah 49:25

Ready or Not Here I Come!

 

In January of 2019 the Lord told me there would be no traveling for me that year, that I was to focus on the assignment He had given me to prepare resources and schools. He impressed upon me that we would launch in May 2020. This was my understanding that 2020, was the year of launching. I had no understanding of what awaited the world in 2020, but recently the Lord impressed upon me to look over what I had written since Rosh Hashanah 2019.

I was surprised at the amount of times I referred to rockets and launching and was searching to understand the significance of this. God was also highlighting the title of each Word I had written and certain parts that stood out to me, excerpts I am including here:

SEPTEMBER:  THE COMING DECADE OF THE VOICE OF THE LORD!

“Thrust is also the propulsive force that gives lift off. God is the thrust and propulsive force of His people, that moves them, sends them and clothes them with power to carry out His will. In the decade ahead the people of God will find themselves suddenly thrust out into new arenas, LOCKED AND LOADED with the power of the VOICE OF THE LORD. He is saying now as He said to Jeremiah, “I am ready to perform My Word!”    

OCTOBER: CANADA ARISE TO YOUR GOD GIVEN DESTINY!

God had told me to re-post a word I had written about 4 years ago. He said to re-post it because it was Canada’s time to rise! It is a time for the Nations to arise to their destiny.

“Over the past few weeks the Lord has been stirring my heart in regard to Canada’s destiny and a coming invasion of the angelic host. God has chosen specific nations, released to run at appointed times in History as a catalyst for the unfolding of His transcendent plan.”

NOVEMBER: THE ROAR OF A HEAVENLY INVASION!

It has begun!! Recently John Kilpatrick had a vision where God told him the angelic hosts were now being released!

“It now seems clear that we are no longer waiting for God to move—HE HAS MOVED! The evidence of this is beginning to break out all over the world. Hollywood is being greatly affected, stadiums are filling up with worship, revivals are breaking out in certain cities. Despite the circumstance around us in regard to politics, the economy, in our nations and in our communities, the people of God are suddenly sensing a RISING in their spirits coming upon them and a shaking of the ground beneath them…the armies of God are riding in unison to gather in the Harvest and defeat the enemies of God!”

DECEMBER: BIG THINGS ARE COMING!

I didn’t fully understand what this meant…how big the things that were about to come upon us!

“Recently, as I was praying, I heard the Lord’s voice boom in my spirit, “BIG THINGS!” BIG THINGS are coming!!” The Lord sometimes takes a very long time to move, but when He does finally move, it is sometimes accompanied by “…noises, thunderings, lightnings and earthquakes.”

JANUARY: STAY IN THE PLACE OF ASCENDANCY IN 2020

In this word I had a vision on myself standing in a boat on choppy waters in the midst of a raging storm, but my hands were raised to heaven as I praised Him in the midst of it! God was highlighting the need for thanksgiving and prayer during the storms that were to come in this year and the decade ahead!

“Sometimes people can be shy about praising aloud, but God wants to hear YOUR VOICE! Praise is a declaration of the power, might and character of our God, out loud! Not only does God want to hear us say the words, praise works internally to change our disposition and shift us into the place of GREAT FAITH. The combination of our great faith rising before Him and His Presence moving in to inhabit our praise, creates a dynamic atmosphere primed for miracles to take place. These are the ingredients that will ALWAYS CREATE BREAKTHROUGH! The psalmist declared that the HIGH PRAISES of God in our mouth and the two-edged sword of the Word of God in our hand, is our weapon against the enemies of God (Ps. 149:6).

FEBRUARY: THREE…TWO…ONE…LIFT OFF!

This word was about a rocket that was a New Wineskingetting ready to be launched! The emphasis in my spirit in this word, was about getting rid of everything that was restricting us from the take off. The paragraph below highlights the financial aspect but after I wrote it, I realized that there was much, much more that was restricting God from moving…hence the need for a shutdown in preparation.

“The Lord revealed that presently there were rules and regulations based on man’s agenda that were restricting the launch and thrust of this Apostolic Spacecraft. These were regulations that were working to suppress His supernatural work and stifle the moves of the Holy Spirit; they were founded on the world’s reasoning and the world’s economic system.  He then highlighted the example of President Donald Trump’s economic strategy: after becoming President, he immediately removed the burden of hundreds of regulations the previous administration had placed on the U.S. economic system. With the added impetus of America’s alignment with Israel and the moving of the embassy to Jerusalem, the U.S. economy took off like a rocket and continues to rise. America may fear recession and economic collapse, but its economy is fully under the sovereign control of God, held and fully empowered by the Word of God that blesses those who bless and take care of His people Israel. Trump’s strategy is also a prophetic picture for the Church. As we are now being prepared to launch, it is important to examine and re-evaluate the economic structures we have put in place, whether they are founded on Biblical principles or on the principles of the world. God is asking us to step off of the ground of carnal policies and ascend by faith to life in the power of God, where the Wind of the Spirit thrusts us ever higher into the dynamic of the supernatural eternal life we were meant to live.”

MARCH 13th: THE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN!

Here I wrote about the instructions God gave me to hold three prayer thrusts leading to MAY…He highlighted again that May was a very significant month…in present light of all that has transpired to this day, I just feel the need to be very humble before this Mighty, awesome and fearsome God we serve!!

“I recently wrote a word titled, Three…Two…One…Lift Off, a word the Lord gave me regarding a rocket about to be launched.  After the word was first published in February, I heard the Lord say, “The countdown has begun!”   When He said that, my thoughts immediately went to the month of May, and was reminded that in the early months of 2019, the Lord had highlighted May 2020 as a significant month to mark—and that there were three months to May. The Lord then gave me a strategy to hold a night of intercession once a month for the next three months taking us into May.  I believe it is now time to get focused, intentional and forceful in our intercession to get this rocket off the ground as we wait on the Lord for direction and for revelation. This will be a decade of warfare and great battles for the harvest and for the Lord’s purposes to be fulfilled. We are presently caught in the waves of birth pangs that will deliver a monumental move of God!  This is definitely the time of Isaiah 60 where both the Glory of God and the darkness will be increasing with intensity. The Lord is calling forth the intercessors to mobilize and pray through the push of these birth pangs.”

MARCH 18th: THE BIG RESET!

God had me write two words in March that had a great emphasis on prayer, intercession and warfare. I felt the Lord directed me to emphasize the need to understand warfare; that everyone would need to be equipped for the days ahead.  When Israel entered the Promised Land there was much warfare to possess it!

“During a recent time of Intercession, I saw a massive lion pacing restlessly with anticipation; the scripture that came to mind was Isaiah 42:13-17:

“The LORD will march out like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies. “FOR A LONG TIME I HAVE KEPT SILENT, I HAVE BEEN QUIET AND HELD MYSELF BACK. BUT NOW, LIKE A WOMAN IN CHILDBIRTH, I CRY OUT, I GASP AND PANTI will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”

I believe it is important that we take full advantage of this time God has given us to examine our lives, get rid of the non-essentials and recognize what is important.  In rest we will hear more clearly from God the strategies He wants to implement and the intercessory initiatives that will give birth to them. This is time to draw close to God and fine-tune our spiritual senses.”

APRIL: THE THREE PASSOVERS

In this word God revealed that the date May 8th of our third prayer thrust—the number one in the three, two, one…Lift OFF, is the second chance Passover in Israel, where mercy was given as a second chance to those who were not prepared at the first.  It is Also VE-Day, A DAY OF VICTORY WHEN THE ENEMY SURRENDERED TO THE ALLIES in 1945!

Most notable was the Bread and the Cup shared between Jewish leaders in Israel and Gentiles all over the world, at the heart of God’s intention for the One New Man of Jew and Gentile in Him. After this event God gave me a brief vision, inspired by that time; He showed me a picture of white bridal lace having a floral design!  As I pondered the significance, He gave me the analogy of the lace being a fisherman’s net.  He said that as the body becomes a Bride, Her Bridal garment of honor and union would become the net He would use to catch the billion soul Harvest.

MAY: – READY OR NOT HERE I COME!

The word that the Lord gave me in early March, to begin our prayer thrusts, was from Revelation 3:20, spoken to the church of Laodicea.

“Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come in and dine with Him and he with Me!”

I felt that the Lord was voice was booming over the Church over the noise of our business and distractions, “Is anyone listening, does anyone hear; I am knocking at your door, open it and we will feast together.” Not long after we went into lockdown. God has moved, He has arisen and is doing something very BIG in His Church. The Commander of the armies has showed up, He has come to take over!

The morning after the prayer thrust, the Lord revealed something that shook me in my spirit, related to Isaiah 9:2. Over the last 20 years, whenever I have read this passage my insides would shake and tremble.

 “Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. The land of Zebulun and Naphtali will be humbled, but there will be a time in the future when Galilee of the Gentiles, which lies along the road that runs between the Jordan and the sea, will be filled with Glory. The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine…For You will break the yoke of their slavery and lift the heavy burden from their shoulders. You will break the oppressor’s rod, just as You did when You destroyed the army of Midian. For a Child is born to us, a Son is given to us. The government will rest on His shoulders. And He will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of His ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen! Isaiah 9:1

I have pondered this passage many times and wondered why it would have this effect on me…trying to understand what He was saying to me. This passage is a prophecy of the first coming of Jesus and is quoted in the New Testament in Matthew 4:14. Galilee is where JESUS BEGAN HIS MINISTRY.

“Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum, which was by the lake in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali—This fulfilled what God said through the prophet Isaiah: “In the land of Zebulun and of Naphtali, beside the sea, beyond the Jordan River, in Galilee where so many Gentiles live, the people who sat in darkness HAVE SEEN A GREAT LIGHT. And for those who lived in the land where death casts its shadow, A LIGHT HAS SHINED.”  From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NEAR.”

That morning the Lord whispered in my spirit that He was coming! I am not referring to His Return but His coming to us, to our Cities—cities prepared for Him. I then asked what should I do? What should we do? God has fixed the timing of His movements on earth and they are usually always suddenlies that are expected but take us by surprise.

Jesus is coming for such a time!  The Global Passover organized by David Damian, where Christians took Communion with Israel is the most significant Passover and Communion since Jesus took it with His disciple, and a beginning of the One New Man. I believe that all the cities who took communion with Israel that day will see a move of God! I believe He is saying that it will be a Galilee Movement! Jesus is coming to our cities! Cities near water will especially see a move of God and from there spread, the Galilee of the Gentiles!

Jesus is coming to establish Cities of Refuge…safe Havens protected by His Glory in the days ahead! THESE CITIES WILL SEE A GREAT LIGHT! ON THESE CITIES LIGHT WILL SHINE! As I pondered this with the Lord, certain questions came to my mind and some answers from Him:

He is coming, what do we do? How do we prepare? He answers in Matthew: “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” Cleanse your heart of all idols, anything that takes precedence over Me.

He said is coming to dine with us, have food ready for him! What food shall we give Him?  His answer: Our adoration and praise; thanksgiving and devotion and our time!

Get your house ready and in order, have a prepared place for Me. Don’t sweep things under the carpet or hide them in the closet…I see it all!

Things to think About! How does your Ministry serve His interests? Was it initiated by Him? How can it serve on a larger scale? THINK BIG…think with the Holy Spirit!  We will need food to feed large crowds. Do we have food? God has been storing food within us over our lives—we are his storehouses. Jesus is able to multiply our food when it is lifted up and offered to God!

Protection—What are you doing to guard and protect your gates? The gates into your home, your ministry, your church, your family? Gates can be people placed in wrong positions, presumptuous agendas, financial open doors not aligned to the plumb line of the Word.

Are you a new wineskin that can hold the coming NEW WINE—Costly wine!  Are you willing to drink the cup He gives? Have you laid the old on the Altar in preparation for the new way we will walk…a way we have not been before? I felt that He said, “Put everything in the Fire and follow ME – that’s apostolic.” The apostles served Jesus only, they were sent by Jesus, not by man, or by themselves. Do you have accountability with others or are you a lone ranger? Without accountability you are a loose canon and God cannot trust you with supernatural power. The Lord is ready to hand over the big guns…but not to the proud and to the immature. Many times, over the last six words I have written, He has said to tell them: “Ready or not here I come!”  He is coming! Are we ready?

THE DECADE OF THE VOICE OF THE LORD IS HERE! NATIONS ARISE TO YOUR GOD GIVEN DESTINY! THE ROAR OF A HEAVENLY INVASION CRESCENDOS! BIG THINGS ARE COMING! STAY IN THE PLACE OF ASCENDANCY! THREE…TWO…ONE…LIFT OFF! THE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN! TIME IS UP! THE GLOBAL RESET IS NOW!

Ready or not here I come!

Three…Two…One… Lift Off!

 

During a leaders meeting I recently attended, I had a vision of a Rocket Ship about to launch with flames shooting out from its base. Attached to the tip was a silver armed warhead. The Lord then began to lead me into an understanding of this revelation which continued to expand in depth over the following week. He highlighted three important features and objectives of a rocket and related it to the present purposes of His apostolic leaders, the first of which is exploration:

Exploration

Exploration, is the action of searching unknown territory for resources. Space exploration takes this to another dimension in its reach for new heights and new discoveries in the cosmos that would be of benefit to mankind. In this prophetic picture God is raising our thought processes to include what may have been previously thought to be impossible—to include the cosmic and supernatural realities made available to the church by God, but have been long ignored.  Just as the pioneers of old broke through to occupy new frontiers, the decade of the 20’s will see the people of God advance with an apostolic thrust into new dimensions of God’s Glory and of the powers of the age to come (Heb. 6:5)

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3

The Military and Warfare

The second feature of a rocket is in the arena of War.  Rockets can also be armed as a weapon of war as in the case of a missile. Rocket propelled missile artillery, deliver explosive warheads to their targets. They can also be defensive in nature, designed to blow up incoming missiles, as the Israeli Iron Dome defense system was designed to do. In the vision, I saw that the rocket had a silver warhead on its tip, representing the supernatural dunamis power of the Word of God’s power that seeks out and destroys the enemy strongholds.

“…so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”  Isaiah 55:11

“And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times.” Psalm 12:6

The Iranian government—the enemy of Israel and the people of God—routinely sends messages to Israel written in Hebrew on its ballistic missiles, such as, “Israel must be wiped out!” However, written on the side of God’s Missile were the words, The Chiefs!  Many words have been recently written, and there has been much talk about Bob Jones’s prophecy regarding the Kansas City Chiefs. Bob shared that when The Chiefs won the Superbowl it would begin a great revival! He also prophesied that in 2020 the great Harvest would begin—these two events have collided this year! Bob also shared that the Chiefs represented the Apostolic Chiefs being released.

Just as Iran sends messages to the people of God on its missiles, with the finger of God, God is writing on His Holy Ghost Ballistic Spacecraft, “My Apostolic Chiefs are Coming!”  God is NOW getting ready for a pre-emptive strike against the enemy that thrusts His Apostolic, Prophetic Chiefs  out, empowered by the DUNAMIS FIRE POWER OF GOD.

Communication

The third feature of a spacecraft is in the area of communication. Rockets deliver satellites that are now routinely positioned in space to establish and expand communication, sending important data and intelligence back to earth. Satellites gather information to benefit mankind, and also provide intelligence on our enemies plans and movements. God’s Apostolic, prophetic Spacecraft carries the eyes of God that sees all and communicates that information to His leaders—It is His Heavenly Intelligence Agency providing vital and strategic information, released to navigate His people safely to the Destination of the Promised Land of Christ.

God’s Apostolic and prophetic leadership have been released to lead the Body of Christ, and is equipped and backed to establish Heavenly strategic initiatives. These initiatives are designed to establish communication systems and constructs for Heavenly intelligence to be released and take vast territory now occupied by the enemyThe apostolic has embedded within the mindset of its ‘going’ a view of the spiritual dimension and the cosmic realities that work to incessantly resist it at all costs. However,  the people of God the people of God have entered a NEW DAY, and will no longer stay on the defensive. This Apostolic Spacecraft is a move of God that is offensive by design, is armed with faith and will deliver targeted Holy Ghost bombs designed to break through the strongholds holding people in captivity.

This Heavenly Spacecraft carries the mandate of Isaiah 61—the passage Jesus read at the launch of His Ministry. Jesus moved out on the offensive, empowered by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God spoken through the prophet Isaiah—we must do the same! This is an anointing that declares the Year of The Lord’s Favour, is empowered to set captives free and to repair ruined Cities.

Rules & The Israel Dynamic

The Lord also showed me that presently there were rules and regulations based on man’s agenda that were restricting the launch and thrust of this Apostolic Spacecraft. These were regulations that were working to suppress His supernatural work and stifle the moves of the Holy Spirit, founded on the world’s reasoning and the world’s economic system. He then highlighted the example of President Donald Trump’s economic strategy: after becoming President, he immediately removed the burden of hundreds of regulations the previous administration had placed on the U.S. economic system.

With the added impetus of America’s alignment with Israel and the moving of the embassy to Jerusalem, the U.S. economy took off like a rocket and continues to rise. America may fear recession and economic collapse, but its economy is held and fully under the sovereign control of God, fully empowered by the Word of God that blesses those who bless and take care of His people Israel. Trump’s strategy is also a prophetic picture for the Church. As we now being prepared to launch, it is important to examine and re-evaluate the economic structures we have put in place, whether they are founded on Biblical principles or on the principles of the world. God is asking us to step off of the ground of carnal policies and ascend by faith to life in the power of God, where the Wind of the Spirit thrusts us ever higher into the dynamic of the supernatural eternal life we were meant to live.

Women of God

Women will be thrust to the forefront of this move of God as an integral part of the Company of Chiefs. Women are being invited to take this place prepared for them by God from before time. If women will rule and reign with Christ at His return, they will also reign with Him now in this time. Women are God’s secret weapon reserved by Him FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS! They will work alongside men as Barak worked with Deborah, Mordecai with Esther and Aquila did with His wife Priscilla. These women were raised up and released by God for their times. God has done this throughout history and is presently doing it again! Women will be key as leaders in the battles ahead—the precedent has been set!

“God Almighty declares the word of the gospel with power, and the warring women of Zion deliver its message…” Psalm 68:11 TPT

On the road ahead, it will be vital that we keep our daily appointment with the Lord, to be listening for His voice and, “…watching daily at His gates” as He moves out to take over, to lead His leaders and His people. God is searching now for those who will worship Him in both Spirit and in Truth! A life founded upon obedience to the truth of the Word of God and obedience to His precepts and principles, is the highest form of worship we can give Him!

The Lord is coming now as the Chief Apostle, the Chief Prophet and Teacher the One through whom God speaks; the Chief Shepherd who guides His people, as the Lord of the Harvest—the Chief Evangelist who works to gather His Harvest. Our posture now is to bow the knee to serve Him—His desires and His plan, to finish His work! He is poised to push the button for LIFT OFF! Are you ready!

BIG THINGS ARE COMING!!

 

Recently, as I was praying, I heard the Lord’s voice boom in my spirit,   “BIG THINGS!” BIG THINGS are coming!!” The Lord sometimes takes a very long time to move, but when He does finally move, it is sometimes accompanied by “…noises, thunderings, lightnings and earthquakes.”

Scripture shows that God waited four hundred years before He had the perfect dynamic to move the people of Israel out of their captivity in Egypt into the promises of God. God called out the man Moses saying that He had heard the cries of His people and was coming down to deliver them (Ex. 3:7-8). After 400 years of silence God moved—it was a BIG THING accompanied by great signs and supernatural wonders!

After twenty years of oppression under the vicious rule of the Amalekites, God raises up Deborah. She was judging Israel at that time, and along with Barak, God sends them into battle, and delivered the enemy into their hands!  This was a BIG THING!

After seven years of oppression under the Midianites the Angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon and greeted him as a “Mighty Warrior,” the Angel in essence tells him that it was time to fight.  This was a BIG THING—Israel was about to drive out the enemy and secure their land, again with signs, wonders and miracles!

After 400 years of silence, with no word from the Lord to the prophets, God sends the man John the Baptist to herald the news of the coming Messiah—the One who would become God’s Gift of salvation to mankind! This was a MONUMENTAL THING! Jesus walked into the Temple, picked up the Scroll of Isaiah and read:

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, TO PROCLAIM THE YEAR OF THE LORD’S FAVOR.” Luke 4:18-19

Jesus came moving in great supernatural signs and wonders and with His death on a Cross changed world history—a VERY BIG THING!

God has heard the cries and the groanings of His people and the travail of the earth for the appearance of the sons of God. He is coming down to release liberty to the prisoners and freedom to the captives, to give them beauty for ashes—TO PROCLAIM 2020 AS THE YEAR, AND THE DECADE OF THE LORD’S FAVOR!

God is now set to come down upon an army of men and women called out as deliverers—as Deborah was; their job description is Isaiah 61, to deliver the people and the land from the bondage of oppression. This army will march forth with the Word of God in their mouths, anointed with the Spirit of the Lord upon them!

God is set and ready to move—there will be thunderings, noises, lightnings and earthquakes in the nations and in every sphere and arena, in demonic systems, governments and social constructs. Demonic structures are primed for a great fall! God’s Light will begin to shine on the darkness and sin. Evil will be exposed as demonic spiritual walls of protection crumble around many who have plotted the demise of nations and of our children.

For those who have ears to hear, directions will fall from Heaven—strategies will come; instructions will be given as was given to Moses, to Deborah, to Gideon and to John the Baptist—God’s unusual, peculiar methods brought forth to set the captives free and bring hope to the despairing.

The Favor of the Lord will rest heavily upon His people, a Favor that draws and attracts everything needed and required to get the job done—resources, finances, gifts, and anointings, supernatural miracles, signs and wonders. Jesus is ready to ride with His apostolic/prophetic servants into the Harvest fields of the nations. The King is ready to go into His fields! Jesus is Lord of the Harvest and is ready to meet with His people in the Harvest fields.

God would say to His people: “Do not look to what man is doing; do not look to what the enemy is up to in their desperation, as their time is short! Look up to Heaven, seek first the Kingdom of God, set your face like flint on the champion King who rejoices to run His course. The Desire of all Nations is coming to save, that is what He does best—He is the Savior King, MIGHTY TO SAVE!

I heard the Lord say that THE TIDE IS TURNING! I have heard this said many times before, but for many days this phrase kept ringing in my spirit, so I dug further into an understanding of it as I felt God was making a point and putting His exclamation on it. When the tide turns THINGS CHANGEusually dramatically, and for the better. The course of bad situations changes—THERE COMES A COMPLETE REVERSAL OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES!

When God says to go, step out of your boat, keep your eyes on Him in absolute faith, for your time has arrived and the tide is turning! Your destiny advances purposefully towards you! It’s time to sing a new song, to shout to the Lord your high praises—praises of His goodness, praises of His majesty that rules the Heavens, and praises for His love that endures forever! Praise the Lord! Praise to the King! Tremble O earth at the Presence of the Lord for He is coming down to save!

As we close the year 2019, I would like to decree over you that in 2020:

You will stand securely under showers of unprecedented blessings, that in this year of Favor you will have the extraordinary Favor of the Lord that draws and attracts all His goodness to you. I decree that you will abide under the exceptional providence and protection that being a child of God affords; that no weapon formed against you will or can prosper, as you dwell under the shelter of His Love. You will have joy, peace, courage and boldness; you will find these virtues rising up in you without effort as you praise Him daily for His goodness and power towards you. You will stand with conviction, without fear, clothed in power in garments of righteousness against the schemes of the enemy proclaiming, this is the year of the favor of the Lord!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

The Roar of a Heavenly Invasion!

 

Apostle Barbara Yoder: Faith Marie Baczko is well known to me; she is a biblically based Spirit led minister and I fully endorse both her and this word:

I was recently at a conference in Ann Arbor at Apostle Barbara Yoder’s Church – Shekinah Apostolic Center.  Dutch Sheets was one of the Speakers and Steve Swanson was leading worship.  The name of the conference was ROAR, a name given at a time when there was little understanding of the significance of the entrance into the decade of peythe mouth in Hebrew. The conference began with a ROAR and ended with a crescendo of HEAVEN’S ROAR uniting with the church.  I am writing this word in response to two visions I received while in worship, visions that I believe are significant now to the people of God as a whole.The first vision I received was on the Friday night.  I have been in many meetings at this church when Steve Swanson was leading worship and moved into prophetic worship…and it was always of the charts in his ability to usher the people into the supernatural realms of God. This night surpassed anything I had ever experienced…however, it was far more than an experience; something significant was initiated by Heaven that night and the following day!  I am finding it very hard to describe with words the sounds that I heard… and I am not going to even try, except to say that the worship began on a supernatural note that continued to build in power and in ethereal intensity (God just gave me that word it means otherworldly). The sound continued to build to such a degree that it became difficult to not be completely overwhelmed and overtaken. Suddenly the emphasis shifted from ascending worship, to a Heavenly invasion into the sanctuary! This commanded the absolute silence of any voices…there was just the ROAR and sounds that accompanied the invading forces.

As I was caught up in the worship, I was taken into a vision; it began with Jesus taking hold of my hand and pulling me into swirls of the Glorious blue—this I believe signified revelation. As I passed through the blue I then looked and saw thousands of white horses, each jostling to get into formation. A line was formed stretching as far as the eye could see.  Suddenly the scene switched, and I was now seeing the church sanctuary fill with these white horses and their riders from wall to wall.  On the platform was a great white horse with Jesus sitting on it and a banner in His hand. A few horses were on either side of Him and He sat there looking as the room filled up with these heavenly riders.

The scene then suddenly switched again to an open field of green with trees lining the far side; the horses were again in formation galloping as swiftly as the wind. As they passed by me, a white cord suddenly was wrapped around me like a lasso; I found myself lifted into the air and firmly planted on the back of one of the horses, riding fiercely with this army. Understanding of the vision didn’t become clear to me until later when I saw that it was timed perfectly with what was happening with the worship. I then understood that the Armies of God—the saints of God and the angelic hosts of Heaven, were being released together into the harvest fields of the world!

After the time of silence in the worship, Apostle Barbara stood and released a confirming word to what I was seeing, she prophesied:

“There is an army, that is right now being commissioned from Heaven. It is arising with the strength that Moses had, that his strength didn’t fail, and his eyes didn’t go dim. They are arising to the tune of Heaven and as they arise to the tune of the sound of Heaven, they are going to march in a coordinated effort across this land… and God said I am going to deliver the victory into their hands. But you must stand, and you must get into your formation, for God says I am on the move, and I am initiating a brand-new movement. And this movement will not be stopped for I am releasing and imparting My strength even right now to go beyond what you have ever gone beyond before. For God is putting the sword of Gideon in your hand, the sword of victory, the sword of the Lord and Gideon! Shout to the Lord! …This is a brand-new day and God is doing a brand-new thing! I am mustering My army, My forces shall not encounter defeat! The Lord says you cannot and shall not be defeated! The Lord says My forces cannot and shall not be defeated! I declare to you that the forces shall not be defeated, they shall break all the way through to victory, for even now there is a new thing happening and there is a swirling of the Winds of Heaven—Winds of strength. There are places where you said , I cannot go any further, or I cannot get up again—the Wind is coming into your back to pick you up and to put you into formation and YOU WILL NOT BE DEFEATED AND YOU WILL BREAK THROUGH TO VICTORY!

The following day the atmosphere and dynamic of worship continued, and God took me into a second vision: This vision began with the color purple, which I understood to mean royalty.  I then saw an enormous Throne with a magnificent and ornate golden chair with One seated on it. It was God the Father! He had a large golden crown on His head with jewels embedded in it and a scepter in His hand. I could not see His face. On either side of His throne stood a line of trumpeters with extremely long golden trumpets; they were all blowing with their trumpets lifted high into the air. The line of them on either side went on and on, again as far as the eye could see. God the Father was not seated on His Throne, He was standing; I thought this was unusual but He was observing us intently.

I then saw a large fearsome lion swagger out in front of the Throne; He stopped and stood there exuding immense power and strength, His eyes blazing with the intensity of what was about to take place.  As the trumpeters blew their horn, I heard the Father Announce: “IT HAS BEGUN!” Apostle Barbara then again began to prophesy:

“The trumpets are sounding! I have now commissioned and empowered my remnant. They are arising as a mighty army that cannot be defeated. They are arising, they are advancing, they will break through and victory is in their hands. They are advancing, they cannot be defeated, victory is in their hands! They are advancing, they cannot be defeated, victory is in their hands. Let the roar arise and run to the battle!”

It now seems clear that we are no longer waiting for God to move—HE HAS MOVED! The evidence of this is beginning to break out all over the world. Hollywood is being greatly affected, stadiums are filling up with worship, revivals are breaking out in certain cities. Despite the circumstance around us in regard to politics, the economy, in our nations and in our communities, the people of God are suddenly sensing a RISING in their spirits coming upon them and a shaking of the ground beneath them…the armies of God are riding in unison to gather in the Harvest and defeat the enemies of God!

Many will now sense the Spirit of God coming upon them with ideas and strategies and will perceive that it is time to step up and move out! Many will no longer be satisfied or content to sit around and wait; they will feel the Holy Spirit nudging them to go again! Look again! You will hear a Voice in the wind encouraging you to cast your net on the other side—to try again with a new strategy or with fresh oil…with an expectation that this is the time, and that this time there will be success! 

God will be releasing very unusual and unique strategies to saints who have the mindset to embrace them and move with Him in the harmony of partnership.  We have heard it said that over history that the last move of God tends to persecute the next move of God—It is important now to not fall into this trap, as God is doing a NEW THING. He has new ways brought forth to overcome the challenges of this present world—the new age with its strange ways of thinking.  It is time to move out without fear and to always remember just as Barbara declared: “You will not be defeated!

Canada Arise to Your God-Given Destiny!

 

Not long after I posted the word below—approximately five years ago, a new political party gained power that took the nation onto a path of unrighteousness and dark policies.  This has given great impetus to the prayer movement in this nation, moved to awaken the Body of Christ, and to the importance of elections and the power of the vote.  I am now re-posting this word as I believe God has heard the cry coming forth from the hearts of His people and is about to move to take dominion of the Dominion of Canada that belongs to Him. Let us as Canadians declare across this nation from sea to shining sea, “Canada arise now to your God given destiny!”  I believe it is time for all the prophecies given to this nation by numerous prophets to come forth. Please everyone, get out and cast your vote for Kingdom principles!

CANADA – GOD’S ANCHOR RUNNER

Over the past few weeks the Lord has been stirring my heart in regard to Canada’s destiny and a coming invasion of the angelic host. God has chosen specific nations, released to run at appointed times in History as a catalyst for the unfolding of His transcendent plan. The primary example being Israel, the nation chosen for the establishment of the Throne of God, the container of the whole counsel of God, and the centre of His administrations through whom He has moved out to take dominion of the earth.  From Jerusalem, to Judea, to Samaria the Gospel went to the ends of the earth, also by way of certain Gentile nations raised up in appointed seasons. Through Rome, Christianity spread throughout Europe and on to Africa, from Constantinople to the Soviet Union; through Spain to the Americas and through Great Britain to the Commonwealth nations.  It is very important to understand that no nation can usurp the position God has ordained for Israel or represent the Promised Land from where Jesus will rule and reign over the earth!

The United States of America was held in reserve and honored as a land of promise for the escape of religious persecution and to bless the nations of the world with the Gospel. God has given the United States great military power and wealth to become the force that restrains evil on the earth. The United States was also chosen to stand as a strong ally and friend to the nation of Israel, to support its growth, guard His purposes contained in it, and protect it from the enemies of God!

God is now set to bring forth the last catalytic nation to the forefront—Canada, also held in reserve for such a time.  Canada has been chosen to play a significant role in the completion of God’s intentions in the last days before His return!  Canada’s mandate is not in relation to its military might but rather, God will invest this nation with spiritual might and authority to enforce key strategies and divine tactical maneuvers in His end-time campaign.

While writing this word, in reference to Canada, I heard the Lord clearly say, “Last Runner.” In researching that phrase, I discovered that the last runner in a relay race is called the ANCHOR RUNNER.  The anchor runner is responsible for preserving the lead ALREADY SECURED on the anchor leg, or last leg of the race!

God has prepared Canada for the glory of His Presence, to be the Anchor Runner. Canada will preserve the lead and gains the United States has made on the last leg of the Divine Journey, to begin the work of preparing the last day Sanctuary that receives Christ!  Canada will be used by God to bring forth the yet awaited revelation of the One New Man that Jesus died for, in an authentic union with Israel and with God!  In the future Canada will become a sign and wonder to the nations of the world as a nation that resides under the Glory, favor and blessing of God by its choice to bless Israel!

The three crowns that form the maple leaf on the Canadian flag represent God’s Throne of Righteousness and Justice established in this land. The two bars of red on either side of the leaf  represent the Blood and the double supernatural ‘Grace, Grace’ to complete the work to bring forth the Headstone—an apostolic generation raised up as the Mature Man, in a Holy union of purpose with Christ! (Zech. 4:7, Eph. 4:13).

The great nation of Canada is poised at the entrance of a season of great national revival! The Church of Canada must make the choice to AWAKEN AND ARISE, to triumph over the forces of darkness pressing in at its gates, with determination to overtake the nation.  It is time for Canada to arise to the Glorious destiny Almighty God has purposed for it! This Mighty move of His Spirit has been revealed to many prophetic voices dating back as far as 1776:

Around 1776 zealous Americans sought to persecute the British Empire Loyalists who had turned north to settle in Canada in order to remain under the British rule.  The Spirit of the Lord spoke through the prophets of the Puritan Reformers saying:  “Do not hinder these people, let them move to Canada.  Do not seek to incorporate the land of Canada into America.  I am in the independence of America from Britain, and will mightily use this country.  But Canada has been reserved by Me for the last days for a special work.” (Peter Marshall: The Light and The Glory)

Canada has been ordained by God FOR A SPECIAL WORK, to play a critical role in the outworking of God’s plan to unveil the Bride of Christ in preparation for union with the Bridegroom.  This nation has an ambassadorial call, to apostolic leadership, to represent God’s strategies for the closing of this age, and for the unification of the Body of Christ, in its transformation into the Bride of Christ!  In years past I have had three significant revelations from God in regard to Canada that I believe have been reserved for now.

PROPHETIC PERSPECTIVES

In the first vision I saw the map of North America, and as I looked at the map Canada shifted and was lifted up as a holy offering onto God.  As I continued to look, the entire nation burst into fiery red and golden flames.  As I continued to marvel at this sight the nation was raised upward and became a Golden Crown.

The second revelation I received came as I was leading an Intercessory prayer meeting for Canada; as we were praying, the Lord led me to Luke 14:7-11 a parable about a wedding feast:

So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them: “When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.”

The Lord then said that Canada had been faithful over the years to remain in the background in humility, that it was time for Canada to come to the forefront and take its place in the destiny of God, as He intends to show up in this nation in a mighty and momentous move!  God is now saying to Canada: “FRIEND, COME UP HIGHER, RECEIVE THE GLORY OF MY PRESENCE THAT IS COMING UPON YOU.”

The third revelation God gave me was through a dream:  I was on a white horse seated behind the Lord, holding on to Him.  I was wearing a Bridal dress and the train was very long and blowing in the wind as we were flying above the clouds.  We then descended through the clouds and I began to see the earth below.  We flew closer to the earth towards North America.  I then saw Canada.  We flew very quickly toward its Eastern coastline then suddenly stopped just outside of Canada.

We sat there looking across the nation of Canada; it was very bright, lit up with white light.  Wide beams of white light were extending up into the heavens from the entire nation, coast to coast.  I then saw a thick white cloud descending over Canada.  As I looked closer, I then realized that it was not a cloud at all, but rather, thousands and thousands of angels descending upon the nation.  We stayed outside of Canada observing this; there was the sense in me, almost of urgency—more like a striving to get moving and enter the nation.  I wanted to prompt the horse and move the Lord to enter… the vision then ended.

As I prayed to the Lord about what this meant, and why we did not enter, I sensed that His response was that it was not yet time! That in the fullness of time HE WOULD ENTER, and when He did enter, all Canada would know it!  The white beams of light ascending to Heaven represented the intercessory prayers of the saints that have been going up through a multitude of prayer movements and Houses of Prayer, across this nation from coast to coast.  As a result, an invasion of the angelic host was being released to prepare the nation for a mighty end-time move of God!

Many nations around the earth such as Korea have heard God’s call to prayer for Canada and hundreds of thousands have been faithfully praying over the years! Many prophets and leaders have prophesied great things for Canada such as Yonggi Cho, Kenneth Copeland, Cindy Jacobs and Chuck pierce (many of these prophecies can be found on the internet).  Leaders such as David Damien—an Egyptian Christian, must be honored for answering the call to come to Canada to lay the groundwork of cleansing the land of antisemitism and prejudice, to prepare it for its Divine historic mandate!

Over history God has used key nations as runners to carry the baton on the Divine journey of the Ascent to Union with Christ!  As in a relay race, each runner must hand off the baton to the next runner within the assigned zone. We are now entering the zone of the fullness of times—the time of completion of the House of God and the summing up of all things in Christ, contained in the dynamics of the Feast of Tabernacles. This will be fulfilled in the season of Parousia—the Season of His Presence, when the level of His Presence will rise exponentially!!  It is time to bless Canada, to intercede for Canada, to cheer her on in her call to run the race well, to finish the Divine circuit, and to hand the baton back to Israel.

Now, my son, may the LORD be with you; and may you prosper, and build the house of the LORD your God, as He has said to you. Only may the LORD give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the LORD your God…  Therefore arise and build the sanctuary of the LORD God…”  1 Chronicles 22:9-14

In long relays, runners begin with a slow jog, looking back to the previous runner while holding out their hand to receive the baton.  I believe God is saying to America, that CANADA HAS BEGUN TO RUN; she has been looking back to you over the years, receiving much treasure from you, and now, is now holding out her hand, to take her place in the race and run the Anchor Leg to the finish line!  Canada and the United States share the longest border in the world, we are friends, allies and most importantly we share a divine destiny in Christ to partner together to serve the purposes of the King!  I believe God is asking the United States and all nations to now stand with Canada and under-gird His purposes with prayer, intercession and partnerships for the Canadian elections on the 21st of October, as this nation is significant to God’s unfolding plan!!

THE DECADE OF THE VOICE OF THE LORD!

On September 30th we will be entering the Jewish New Year of 5780. In Hebrew the number eighty is represented by the letter pey that means the mouth.  During worship at a recent conference I attended in Raleigh on prophets and the prophetic, I began to receive a download from the Lord as to this coming decade marked by pey and beginning 2020 on the Gregorian calendar.

Having passed through the decade of ayin, represented by the eye, and seeing, a season of having learned to see and align our spiritual eyes to what God is revealing—we are now entering the time of 20/20 vision, of being perfected in vision in order to speak, decree, and prophecy with a higher level of accuracy and specificity. Prophets and the prophetic will move to the forefront as God moves to release His Will on planet Earth. On Rosh Hashanah we will enter the decade of the mouth—a new season thrusting us into a Holy Spirit inspired boldness to speak forth the Word of God, imparting His will into all situations, circumstances, spheres and political, and economic realms.

THE VOICE OF THE LORD

This will be a decade not related to our words and agendas, but rather TO THE VOICE OF THE LORD, HIS WILL AND HIS AGENDA coming forth in the Spirit of THE FEAR OF THE LORD!

“The voice of the LORD is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The LORD is over many waters. The voice of the LORD is powerful; The voice of the LORD is full of majesty. The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars, Yes, the LORD splinters the cedars of Lebanon…The voice of the LO RD divides the flames of fire. The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; The LORD shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth, And strips the forests bare; And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!” Psalm 29

This will be a decade when we will see prophets and prophetic saints declare and decree with an unction supported by the Voice of the Lord, initiating great breakthroughs long-awaited for.  THE VOICE OF THE LORD WILL THUNDER OVER THE WATERS, impacting the seas of many peoples, shifting nations and governments. THE VOICE OF THE LORD SPLINTERS THE CEDARS, shattering the pride of man—God will shatter and divide the enemy plans and every proud thing that rises against His Will!  THE VOICE OF THE LORD DIVIDES WITH FLAMES OF FIRE, STRIKING WITH BOLTS OF LIGHTENING; God will move to strike at the heart of evil, and the occultic conglomerates empowering iniquity in the earth.

THE LORD SHAKES THE WILDERNESS OF KADESHKadesh meaning the place of defilement and all sexual uncleanness. The Voice of the Lord will shake the places of immorality in the earth, exposing and revealing all that is grotesque and horrific in perversion—God will move to release countless captives from these prisons of bondage and multitudes will be set free!  THE VOICE OF THE LORD MAKES THE DEER GIVE BIRTH—this will be a decade of birthing the promises of God the Body has been travailing for over the last decade. The number eight represents a new beginning and a door, this decade will be the decade of THE BIRTH.  We will see the birth of the Marvels of God and enter into the full knowledge of His faithfulness and goodness to mankind. I see a multitude of doors swinging open to new pastures and fields of creativity, innovation and Ministry, with the Bright Light of God shining with favor on His people, and everyone will shout, “Glory!”

In the decade of the mouth, prophecy will begin to bubble up in the mouths of God’s people, declaring the word of the Lord.  Prophets will rise with prominence and accuracy. The Lord says that this will be a time of extreme acceleration, where His Word will run swiftly to accomplish His will, and will not return void:

“…so is My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11 

God told Abraham that Israel would be in bondage four hundred years and would be set free after the iniquity of the Amorites was complete, or at its fullness. When God was ready to perform this Word, He raised up Moses as a deliverer of His people.  Moses protested before God, saying that He could not speak. God’s answer to him was, “Who has made a man’s mouth?” He then tells him, “I will be with your mouth and teach you what to say!” (Ex. 4:10-12). In Hebrew the word ‘with’ can also mean ‘in,’ and the word teach is yarah and means to, flow as water or shoot like an arrow!

HE PUTS HIS WORDS IN YOUR MOUTH

Jeremiah also told the Lord that He could not speak, but God answered him:

“…you shall go to all to whom I send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,” says the LORD. Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: “Behold, I have put My words IN YOUR MOUTH.”

God is getting set to release an army of deliverers in whom is the Voice of the Lord! His words will flow as water, releasing life and healing to the dry and parched places; bringing restoration to places defiled and destroyed by iniquity. The Lord will send forth His word from these deliverers—shooting them like arrows into the enemy’s camp to tear down strongholds, destroying their schemes!

These saints who have submitted to the process of preparation, will accelerate with the speed of light. I saw a picture of a person I know looking up toward the Heavens, I suddenly sensed in my spirit that she was about to lift off and take off into the fullness of her destiny!  I believe this picture is for many who have been trained in the refining fires of God. The Lord showed me these people having the character of the heroes seen in many movies, men and women who were beaten, thrown out windows, fell off cliffs…seemed to be dead, then got back up, to only be beaten again, fall out of planes run into by cars…and yet miraculously they got up again, and kept going—like the Terminator, nothing could stop them!

I saw that their internal capacity to contain the Spirit of God was maxing out, and the internal combustion within them heating up tremendously, making them ready to be thrust out like a rocket into the stratosphere! They took off and were gone. The anointing on them sends them out with power. There he goes! There she goes!  The Fire on their feet was getting too hot to stand still anymore. This anointing is the RESURRECTION ANOINTING that is about to break many out of their graves and the dead places. GOD IS THE ‘THRUST!’ He is the Fire, and the Power beneath our feet.  There is no stopping it and no turning back!

This anointing is to be suddenly and supernaturally pushed out, to advance forcibly in a certain direction.  The word thrust can also mean a forceful attack, a violent lunge with a sharp weapon. The people of God are the sharpened weapons that He will use to destroy His enemy. In Jeremiah 50 He says:

“You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: For with you I will break the nation in pieces; With you I will destroy kingdoms…” Jeremiah 51:20 

Thrust is also the propulsive force that gives lift off. God is the thrust and propulsive force of His people, that moves them, sends them and clothes them with power to carry out His will. In the decade ahead the people of God will find themselves suddenly thrust out into new arenas, LOCKED AND LOADED with the power of the VOICE OF THE LORD. He is saying now as He said to Jeremiah, “I am ready to perform My Word!”    

Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.” Jeremiah 1:9-10

This is the work of God’s apostolic, prophetic people prepared for this hour of history!

Thousands Upon Thousands Released to Go!

 

For many in the Body of Christ I hear the Lord saying, “You have been functioning at a certain limited level for a long time, because of restrictions and limitations—your perceived limitations in finances, health, education, gender, lack of affirmation or acknowledgment of your call or gift. You have come to the time for you to step up, to go to the next level.”

With the leading of the Holy Spirit, the time has come to take the risk and step up to buy that car, that house, that building, buy that program that you need, get that accountant, upgrade your website, hire help, open up businesses, or buy that airline ticket. When you rise up to make the step of faith, life meets you there and your world begins to shift, take on a new dynamic and adjust accordingly. It is important to do something to activate the new dynamic, as faith without works is dead!

We have been hearing about the coming ‘shift’ for a long time, but I believe the world is shifting under our feet right now—we are already caught in the shift into a significant and notable season of history. With any transition into new territory there will be struggles with adjusting to the New Thing, but through it all God is at work to increase our capacity to contain more of His Glory and to hold the new ground He plans to entrust to us. With perseverance, if we choose not to give up, not to get offended at God or others, we embrace the good fight of faith and fix our eyes on Jesus, life will have changed and you will find yourself functioning at new levels and in new spheres in life and in ministry.

We triumph in faith by pressing through the spiritual resistance coming from all sides and advancing in the power of God, with the anointing of God. The anointing that breaks the yokes of poverty, shame, lack, fear and guilt…Press through! Run the gauntlet of satanic arrows designed to trip you up and shut you down. Rise up in the energy of Christ and like Paul shout, “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).

The prize goes to the one who takes hold of life and in faith makes it conform to the promises of God, rather than to the one who allows life’s circumstances to beat them down. It goes to the one who presses on with courage, who in spite of fear receives the crown. What will you do? Your time has come!

At key moments in history certain people rose up to the occasion with courage and changed history. Martin Luther decided it was time to fight a righteous fight and chose to step forward; Rosa Parks stepped up when she refused to give up her seat on the bus—the spark that lit the hearts of men and women to take their stand.  Winston Churchill stepped up in the face of tyranny—his time had come! Some advised him to make peace with the enemy—a decision was required and the lives of many were weighing heavily on him. He made the decision to say, “Never,” a decision that changed the course of world history.

There are numerous testimonies of people who heard the call of God, or the still small voice and gave up their lives for the greater Glory and went on to do amazing things for God. They heard, they perceived the new thing, they obeyed, and they acted! With courage they stepped out in faith and pulled eternity into present reality. Their lives counted for something much bigger than themselves and their small world. They were dreamers, dreaming about possibilities rather than impossibilities.

Your Call and your dream has to be so big inside of you that it cannot be contained or shut down by anyone or anything, and like Jeremiah you say, But His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not.

Turn your eyes to God and know that His will must come forth!  Choose to cast off fear; take the bull by the horn’s and face your fears!  There is nothing more crippling than fear, it is always founded on lies intended to steal your dreams. What is the lie that you are believing? What is God saying to you? Do something opposite to what the lie says. Your faith will create a bigger place in you for God to occupy and break the the bonds intended to keep you small and average. Let your faith become big, grounded and muscular.  Faith is muscular and will destroy every barrier and mountain in your way.

Always aim for the highest, go for the gold! God needs you to believe for the inheritance He has prepared for you. Your part is a key part of His unfolding plan intended to bring His kingdom to earth—it is not intended only to bless you. Other people are waiting for the treasures He has deposited in you for them. They are waiting for the anointing on your life to break out!  God needs you to possess your promises, He is looking for a return on His investment in you! He needs you in that country He put on your heart; He needs you to have that house, to start that ministry, He needs you to write that book.

You don’t have to be like anyone else, you are not meant to be like anyone else! God has given you a unique anointing special to you. You have your own anointing and work that is intended to give you great joy! Grab hold of life and make it conform to the promises of God. We are now in the fullness of time for the purposes of God to come forth, a time when everything is about to break forth.

Thousands upon thousands are now being released to occupy every sphere of influence, to bring Good News, and reap a harvest for the Lord of the Harvest.  Many years of training and refining have gone into the army of servants now being released; these have graduated through many levels of training—the training time is over! Future training will now be on the job as all are thrust out into the harvest fields of the world. As I said in the last word I wrote, I heard the Lord say, “Ready or not here I come!”

God’s awesome work of Creation was done by faith and with the spoken Word (Heb. 11:3). We must do the same! SPEAK YOUR FUTURE INTO EXISTENCE, CREATE YOUR WORLD BY FAITH. TALK YOURSELF INTO YOUR DESTINY. STIR UP THE GIFT OF GOD IN YOU. SPEAK IN TONGUES DAILY. LIKE JEREMIAH AND PAUL, YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED FROM BEFORE TIME INTO TIME TO ACCOMPLISH SIGNIFICANT WORKS FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD. THE PATRIARCHS OF OLD HAD THE SAME FEARS THAT WE ALL HAVE, BUT THEY PRESSED THROUGH IT AND CHANGED THE WORLD.

 

 

The Breaker Shall Come!

 

God is presently positioning His people strategically for the launch of a great Heavenly campaign, through which the Lord with His heavenly hosts will begin to plunder the enemy’s camp to capture a great harvest of souls for the Kingdom of God.  The Harvest is about to be awakened, and the scales removed from their eyes; many will be given eyes to see and a heart to perceive the living God in Christ Jesus. The Church also is about to be awakened, receive the revelation of their true identity in Christ, begin to move out and begin to do the greater works of Christ.

Moves of God are never neat and tidy, and the one that is coming, that will release the billion soul harvest or possibly much more, will certainly come as a mighty, potent tidal wave that sparks and ignites war, as the rulers of darkness vie to retain power over their prey. In Isaiah 49:25, God in essence asks the question, can the powerful hold and keep their captives? His answer of course, was No, they cannot!

“Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible be delivered; For I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children.”

The Breaker Must Come!

God is now setting the stage for the greatest rescue mission of all time! The captives are restless; unease over the existing state of affairs is shaking foundations as the Church gets primed for action.  If an awakening is to come, if significant change is coming, if the Harvest is to be released from captivitythen the Breaker must first come, and the Breaker Anointing released! A Heavenly invasion must break and smash through the gates, crushing the walls of the enemy’s defences. There is always war at the Gates to Breakthrough! However, the Word of God promises that the gates of hell cannot and will not triumph or prevail.

Jill Austin, a prophet and passionate woman of God, before she died, said in a word she wrote for the Elijah List, “A breaker anointing is a catalytic deposit of the Holy Spirit where eternity breaks through into the natural realm. It’s a holy invasion where the gates of heaven are breaking open with visitations and salvations, healing and deliverance.The breaker anointing is the core anointing of the apostolic Church.”

In the great battle of WWII on D-day, waves and waves of valiant soldiers were willing to give their lives to take down the kingdom of darkness under the rule of Hitler. A new breed of such men and women are now being groomed for the great battles ahead to release the captives from their prisons, and their hard task masters who are bent on destroying civilization as we have known it. In Donald Trump’s great speech on D-Day, he honored the soldiers who fought that day on the shores of Normandy as the greatest generation ever; now however, another of the greatest and most significant generations ever to live is being made ready for notable of battles ahead.

This new breed is rising with Jesus’ cry of Isaiah 61 on their lips, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the LORD has anointed Me…to proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; TO PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.” (emphasis mine).

God is making ready a people for a HOLY WAR. In light of this, we can understand the reason for preparation in holiness, brokenness, love and mercy. The battle cry will resound as a trumpet blast from heaven to ignite the battle and releasing the sound that awakens a generation to their Divine destiny. This significant generation will see things that prophets and righteous men longed to see (Matt. 13:17).  We have been called to live in this notable hour to serve the purposes of the living God; it is time to be courageous and fearless.

The Trumpets Are Sounding!

In scripture (Num. 10:4), the silver trumpet was sounded  for the gathering of the leaders only once. Leaders had to be alert, listen for the sound of the trumpet and be ready. When the leaders led the people to war, the trumpets would also be blown to gather them for the battle ahead.

“When you go to war in your land against the enemy who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, and you will be remembered before the LORD your God, and you will be saved from your enemies.” Numbers 10:9

In a time of discouragement and despair, God once said to me very forcefully, Never put down your sword!  We cannot afford to be taken by surprise and caught off guard by hells schemes and sudden tactics. Pearl Harbor is a great example of a sudden and unexpected attack; these soldiers we’re highly trained and prepared, but their guards were down. The Word of God tells us,“If the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?” (1 Cor. 14:8). It is critical for the Church to be in a state of readiness, with our loins girded up, that we may run a race of strength and victory. Satan is holding captive billions of souls. The Word of God says, there is a time for every purpose—It is time to war at the gates for the souls of mankind.

Many years ago the Lord sent a prophet to my house with a message that I was to study the name Yahweh Shamah—one of the names of God; it means THE LORD HE IS THERE! In this season the Lord will be very present with us in every aspect of our lives and everything we do for Him. This is the name the Lord is highlighting for this season—for a generation who have come into maturity to the fullness of the stature of Christ. His Presence will fill the temple of lives dedicated to Him; He will be there to occupy their destiny to ensure its fulfillment! Yahweh Shamah represents the Lord in His fullness of power and authority, acknowledging the completeness of His work in a people, as He comes to fill them with His Glory.

“…the name of the city from that day shall be: THE LORD IS THERE” Ezekiel 48:35

Don’t Discount The Small Thing!

Recently I had a small sense of the Lord possibly asking me to do a particular thing. I thought about, it and for a variety of reasons I brushed it off as not from the Lord. Later, the same small thought came on me to do this thing, and again I brushed it off. As I sat in a meeting one evening, the speaker said that God won’t give you directions for the next thing until you are obedient to do the last thing he told you to; immediately the same thought came to mind; I was greatly convicted and repented. The Lord then showed me a picture of a very small crack of a door that had opened.  The small crack represented a seemingly small opportunity, and I heard the Lord say, “Don’t discount the small thing, the small opportunity or the small voice; if there is a crack in the door it means the door has opened! A way is opening and has been made ready for you. Heaven is aligning the path ahead for you. If the door has opened even a crack, it means that with very little effort, with ease it can be pushed open, and will fully open to the broad expanse before you.”

Over this summer doors will be cracking open for some and swinging wide for others, establishing the saints in the Divine Call on this generation. The Breaker will be breaking open the way to begin to move out,  anointing the saints with the anointing of the Breaker to open prison doors and set captives free!  The Breaker rests upon the head of His people, as the oil was poured out on the head of Aaron. It advances on an apostolic people and leadership—a vanguard of courageous people united to the King, willing to give all for His Glory.

“The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: AND THEIR KING SHALL PASS BEFORE THEM, AND THE LORD ON THE HEAD OF THEM.” Micah 2:13 (emphasis mine)

Don’t miss the small voice, or ignore the small opportunity. The Breaker has come! Get ready for a summer of breakthrough! I heard the Lord whisper, “Ready or not, here I come.”

Brokenness Sees

 

The last word that I wrote was directed at knowing Christ in the power of His resurrection and pressing on to the High Call of being trusted with His power. However, that’s only half of the equation in the attainment to this High Call; the other part of the equation is to first know Him in the fellowship of His sufferings. Brokenness is the foundation for knowing Christ in the fellowship of His suffering—His suffering to bring to birth the longing of His heart, the magnificent vision of His Bride. Brokenness provides the ability to participate with Him in that travail to bring forth His dream and consequently to know Him in the ultimate power of His resurrection to bring that forth.

“Thus says the LORD: “Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest? For all those things My hand has made, and all those things exist,” Says the LORD. “But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My word.” Isaiah 66:1-2

There is a perfect correlation between brokenness and humility, with the ability to see and hear, just as there is between pride, blindness and deafness. I am not necessarily talking about the seeing that is a prophetic, although that will certainly be affected because of mixture.  I am talking about the seeing that releases an understanding of God, of who He is and therefore of who we are before Him—of knowing Him in His ways, understanding His purposes and His will. Moses asked of Him, “Show me your ways that I may know You.”

The Word of God declares to us that the sufferings that we experience cannot be compared to the Glory that shall be revealed in us!  Brokenness keeps the flame of love burning on our hearts whereas pride puts ourselves at the forefront. On the day that arrogance dies, the Lord will be seen high and lifted up and the train of His robe filling His temple as Isaiah saw in the year  Uzziah died.

“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple.” Isaiah 6:1 

Brokenness Takes us Higher

There is great power and authority coming to the people of God that will be entrusted to those who have been prepared in brokenness and who have embraced it as the work of God in their lives. These are ones who repent with Godly sorrow when they see their hearts in the Presence of a Holy God, and cry out like Isaiah. “I am a man of unclean lips!” Recently I have taken note of many pastors and leaders—some who are well known—who are being shifted to a deeper levels in God through the door of brokennes by their choice to make themselves vulnerable and transparent. The fruit from this in their lives is truly magnificent—much revelation, sublime wisdom and an authentic and beautiful spirit in the fragrance of Christ!.

“The sacrifice You desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.” Psalm 51:17

I love how the Message expresses this passage:

“I learned God-worship when my pride was shattered.
Heart-shattered lives ready for love don’t for a moment escape God’s notice.”

These who have been broken are able to know Christ in the fellowship of His suffering. These are ones He will trust to know Him in the power of His resurrection. In brokenness, pride is shattered, trustworthy, safe vessels are made ready and are brought forth.

Pride Keeps us Blind

During a recent conference I saw something in my own heart, an issue rooted in pride that I had been working on over the years. It was the pride of being overly opinionated without being in possession of all the facts. For a moment it was if a burst of Light landed on my heart highlighting the issue; I saw it with a clarity that I had not seen before and was able to see the many times it had hindered me in life. I was in a place of brokenness about this as I saw the many times God’s hand had protected me from sabotaging my destiny because of it, and His patience in waiting for me to grow in this area. I was broken because pride had kept me blind, deaf and unaware of any of this until that moment. As Light came in, I was able to see because of the brokenness.

Since that time, I have had key moments of increased seeing and receiving strategy and direction from the Lord—as if a blockage had been cleared and the smudges on my glasses were cleaned.  Prophetic, seers must be careful to not fall into the trap of opinions, for as much as God reveals, we are never privy to all the facts, only God sees it all at the same time—the past the present and the future.  He alone has perfect understanding!  We serve Him with our gift in humility and obedience, never going beyond the bounds of His instruction and revelation. Those who are careful in their walk before Him and handle revelations with righteousness, become friends and partners of God, ministering to the heart of God and serving His Love and care to humanity.

Brokenness is a great Gift of God! As a consequence of seeing, we can choose to humble ourselves before God, seek His mercy and forgiveness for the arrogance that has kept us blind, bound to earth, the flesh, opinions and judgments.

“For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15

To revive means: – to make alive, give (promise) life, nourish up, preserve alive, quicken, recover, repair, restore (to life), revive, save, be whole. These are blessings awaiting the humble heart.

Brokenness gives us the wings to fly into eternal and supernatural possibilities. Those trained in brokenness will be transformed into a great army of Eagles, flying with the Lord into the heights, entrusted with eyes to see into the distance, given to understand the times, to know like Issachar what is coming and what needs to be done—discerners who understand the Lord’s movements and can easily detect the schemes of the enemy and the counterfeit. Brokenness sees and knows!

God’s Corporate Family

Twenty years ago, God told me that the Great Revival and outpouring of God I was looking for would come to a corporate people.  In my immaturity at the time, I did not want to believe or accept that statement and was unwilling to wait for others.  Like Joshua and Caleb, I felt that I was willing and ready to enter the Promised Land at the time. I was eating and dreaming revival, reading everything I could get my hands on! Zeal for the Lord was consuming me yet there was little love in my heart.  Twenty years later I am just beginning to understand that God meant what He had said.

Caleb and Joshua had to wait forty years for the old generation marked by the old ways of division, pride, grumbling, murmuring, in-fighting, and usurping leadership, to die off.  They had to wait until a generation of warriors who had learned the lessons and chosen God’s ways of humility, had come forth. Israel became a corporate, unified body that was beautiful in God’s eyes.  Balaam who was called forth to curse the people of God could only prophecy the pleasure of God over His people.

“How lovely are your tents, O Jacob! Your dwellings, O Israel! Like valleys that stretch out, like gardens by the riverside, like aloes planted by the LORD, Like cedars beside the waters.” Numbers 24:5-6

“He has not observed iniquity in Jacob, nor has He seen wickedness in Israel. The LORD his God is with him, And the shout of a King is among them. God brings them out of Egypt; He has strength like a wild ox. “For there is no sorcery against Jacob, Nor any divination against Israel. It now must be said of Jacob And of Israel, ‘Oh, what God has done!’ Numbers 23:21-23

The work that God has been doing in His people over the years, in His mind, has had one end in view, a corporate people that have become a unified body in fellowship and in a love for each other that binds us together in Him. This is His great emphasis right now—the honoring and preferring of our leaders and each other, fellowshipping together, eating together, bonding together, falling in love with each other.  This as a foundation for the coming Harvest and the great and effective door He is about to open to His Body. As He has said in His Word, it is by our love that they will know Him!  Brokenness prepares the heart to express a love that is pure and authentic. It tenderizes our hearts and allows us to truly become a family—the family of God!

The High Call of God

For every dispensation of time, the Saints are called forth to the stewardship of that time, ensuring that God’s will is accomplished, and His intentions fulfilled. Paul declared in Colossians 1:25 that he became: “…a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God…”

The word ‘stewardship’ in the Greek is oikonomia; It is a word related to the stewardship and management of God’s economy. For those chosen to be born and live in these fullness of times—in the Day of His Power, the call to ministry is to the High Call of stewarding and administering the Life of Christ in the fulness of the power and authority intended by the Lord.

The Bible highlights the many great leaders and saints who lived out the principle that God raises up certain people for certain times and prepares and equips them to administer His blueprint for that period.

Joshua was one of God’s most trustworthy and faithful leaders, raised up to cause the people of God to conquer and possess the promised land. Joshua 24:31 is testimony of his great leadership, “Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua…”

There are strategic assignments to be accomplished for every season, and keys brought forth by God to crank the engine, that drives and directs our movement on the journey of ascension to Christ toward the completion of His Divine plan.

Every objective of God to be accomplished in every dispensation, is a vital and crucial part to His unfolding plan. Each becomes a part of the momentum that moves history forward toward the climax of times at the end of the age.

 “In all wisdom and insight, He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him.” Ephesians 1:8-10

The word administration in this passage, is translated as dispensation and also as stewardship in other translations; it is the same word oikonomia, spoken of earlier in Col. 1:25. In the context of this passage, it refers to God’s administration or stewardship of a certain period of history to which Paul described as “the fulness of times.” This passage also takes into account the Lord’s servants appointed to partner with Him in this administration, to carry out His will and execute His Campaign with authority; the ESV describes it as, “…a plan for the fullness of time.”

God will have an administration suitable for this dispensation, tailored and equipped to meet the challenges of the times—this is our destiny. It is therefore necessary to God’s interests that we: Understand the dynamics of the times; God’s intentions for the times; know the framework and boundaries of the times; the enemy’s limits within the times (Dan. 7:25); and receive directions and tactical assignments to implement the plan of God.

The prophets of Israel were called forth as stewards of the oracles of God and witnesses to the world of the Living God. They lived supernatural lives functioning in gifts and abilities sourced from another realm.  For this present hour, the saints prepared and brought forth to serve God, will be a unique people, bold and courageous, who stand resolute, tethered to the Lord by humility and the fear of the Lord. They are called forth for the stewardship of a unique season of fullness, when everything has matured to its fullness—both good and evil—the season of Harvest!

THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD

The responsibility to execute this stewardship is authorized by a walk of integrity and faithfulness to the Call and undergirded by a resolution of unwillingness to compromise or capitulate.  To such a heart is the high call of God given.

These saints will be moving in heightened discernment and in the fullness  of the administrations of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. They will be a people who have attained to the glory of sonship the Father intended—a people conformed to the image of the Son.

Philippians 3 is a passage written by Paul toward the end of his life. In it he shares his great longing to know Christ at a deeper and higher level in the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings:

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Verses 12-14

Paul’s words reveal that he was pressing on to attain to something far greater than he had thus far experienced in his life—he was pressing on for more! This was captured in his cry to apprehend the fullness for which Christ had apprehended him.  Paul referred to this prize as the high call of God.  What is the high call of God? It seems clear that Paul’s desire was not simply that of a literal resurrection from the dead, confirmed by his words, “…not that I have already attained.”

In the Greek language, the words high call or upward call, means a mandate and an invitation to come up higher. The definition of the word high adds further light as to Paul’s intent:

High: extending above the normal or average level; great, or greater than normal, in quantity or intensity.

Some may say that Paul was moving in great signs and wonders, however the cry of Paul’s hearts shows that there is much, much more for us to experience in God. Paul was straining, pressing and reaching forward for this prize—to grasp and lay hold of the fullness of his inheritance in Christ.

There is a coming level of resurrection power to be released in its fullness in the saints that extends far above a level we have yet seen. Paul’s goal was reaching for this prize of the high call of knowing Christ in this level of resurrection power.

THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION

Paul prayed that the saints would also know this great power and get the possibilities of what the embrace of their true identity as sons of God meant for their lives and consequently for the world.

“…what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power…” (Ephes. 1:18-20).

Resurrection power is the new dynamic and DNA of saints born again in Christ. We are now supernatural beings by the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit, as the scriptures clearly show:

“Now when the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who had given such power to men.” Matthew 9:8:

“Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.” Luke 24:49:

GOD’S SUPER HEROES

The disciples lived a life in demonstration of this indwelling power, administering it in the boldness and courage granted by the Holy Spirit. The Old Testament provides many accounts of those who served God displaying His power; for example, Moses in the power of God parted the Red Sea. Elijah parted the river Jordan and stopped the rain from falling for three years. Both he and Elisha with the help of angel armies accomplished many supernatural feats and miracles. In battle Joshua asked God to turn back time and it was granted.

As a Man, Jesus walked the earth displaying marvelous supernatural power. He healed the sick of all diseases and raised the dead. He walked on water and commanded the storm to be still, demonstrating power over all natural elements.  Yet, Jesus declared to His followers that they would do greater works than He did.

Jesus’ words became a reality for the disciples, who began moving out in signs and wonders, in supernatural power in the gifts of healing, wisdom and foreknowledge of events; some raised people from the dead. Phillip, a disciple travelled from one city to another supernaturally:

“When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. Philip, however, appeared at Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel in all the towns until he reached Caesarea.” Acts 8:39-40

SUPERNATURAL POWER

As preparation for moving in the High Call of God, I heard the Lord say the word hone. To hone the gifts and skills given to us means to: sharpen as a blade; refine or perfect something—honing skills; give greater strength or firmness to the body, or a part of the body.

Corinthians 12:7-11 declares that we have each been given power that functions through nine gifts administered in the power of the Spirit of God. In the fullness of time, God will have a people of superior supernatural prowess, moving in the powers of the age to come, above the normal or average level. These are the sons of God the earth is travailing to bring forth:

“…who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age…”

THE CLASH OF TWO KINGDOMS

The clash of kingdoms will be dramatic as God releases His own Super Heroes prepared for the hour—warriors whose faces are set—sons of Zion raised up to war against the sons of Greece, their God has made them like, “…the sword of a mighty man. The LORD will be seen over them…” Zechariah 9:13-14

For the fullness of time, our God-given supernatural gifts will be released to function at a much higher level than even seen in Scripture. A new breed will emerge fashioned for the challenge of the climax of history.  It is time for the saints of God to get the revelation of the power and great treasures that reside within them through Christ— “Christ in you the hope of glory.” The High Call of God is attainment unto Glory!

 “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us…”  Ephesians 3:20

The Day of the culmination of all things, is the Day of His Power when the saints volunteer freely, the leaders lead courageously and willingly, and Heaven invades planet Earth with the Glory of the Christ. Of this day, as the armies of Heaven march in unison with God’s army on Earth to take the Promised Land, it will be said, as it was said of Israel when they gathered corporately to advance into the Land. “The shout of a King was among them.”  That King is Jesus!

God is calling the saints to be bold, to come up higher into the Upward and High Call of God, to take our positions in the battle against evil.

REMOVING THE SECONDARY TO RELEASE THE PRIMARY!

 

In the first week of this year I became quite sick and had to take a few days off to rest.  As I lay on my couch, I took the opportunity to spend some time in prayer and soaking. God took this opportunity to get my attention! As I soaked, I began to perceive that God had something awesome on the horizon for His people in 2019.  I also began to understand that the visions and promises that God had given me related to my destiny in Him were not necessarily going to be fulfilled in the manner I thought they would—that it would probably look very different than what I was anticipating.  I had a deep sense that in 2019 and 2020 we were approaching something very holy to God; that it was wisdom to adopt a spiritual posture of humility before the majesty of the King, in full surrender to His will and the acknowledgment that Jesus Christ is Lord!

Directly in front of the couch where I lay soaking was our large screen TV, set to the fireplace channel. As I stared into the fire, the Lord said that I was to put everything into the fire as a holy offering onto him—the ministry, the websites, my books, courses, all my work and projects over the last 20 years, all my hopes, dreams and expectations. Along with everything, I was to put myself on the altar and let the flames reduce it all to beautiful ashes! The fire symbolized the cleansing work of God where He would be purifying my life’s work, the motivations of my heart and the hidden desires of self.

I readily submitted to this process, fully expecting Him to refine the work for His greater Glory, never expecting that He might not return some of the things I had placed in the fire—but that is what happened! God soon began to highlight certain things that were to remain in the fire—certain projects I had worked on for years, others more recently—gone. These were things had all borne a certain measure of fruit, but not to the level I had been expecting.  Having given birth to these endeavors, it was with some tears, that in obedience I put and end to them. After I got over the initial shock of what I had done, surprisingly, I began experience much relief as the burden for these ventures lifted—I felt freedom! I have chosen to be vulnerable and transparent as I believe that many will relate with this word and through obedience will experience the same relief and freedom I felt.

I then heard the Lord say that I was to now focus like a laser beam on the original mandate He had given me—the primary vision.  He revealed that the things He kept, although good, were not His first intention for me, they were secondary visions I had attached to the primary. He helped me to see that the secondary had become a hindrance and a distraction to the primary!  I began to see—and possibly others will relate—that over the many years in the long wait of preparation and training for the mandate, that the primary vision that is His destiny for our lives, can become blurred, distorted by the flesh, emotions, and by enthusiasm. And that because of a lack of clarity as to the manner of the fulfillment of the vision, the flesh tries to fill in the gaps—to add or subtract in an attempt to complete a picture given in seed form.  As He has said, His ways are so much higher and beyond our reasoning.

God impressed upon me that He has heard all the prayers of His people, knows all our desires, understands all our expectations and acknowledges all the demands made on Him in faith! However, as we approach Him in 2019, I believe He is saying, “I acknowledge it all!  Now, let it all go into the fire!”  All that I need you to understand for 2019 and beyond is to be still and know that I am God. Trust that I know what I’m doing in every sphere of your life and in the world, even though you may not understand it at first.”

In 2019 God is going to be trimming away the secondary to bring forth the primary in Glory—the Glory of God shall be seen on His people. The Lord will receive all the honor and He alone will be exalted and glorified through all the we are and do for Him!

In the years ahead, the sons of God will come to fullness as they partner with the Lord’s plan and the Lord’s intentions—a partnership in sonship.  A new dynamic will come forth through this strategic alliance with the Godhead that will see ministries, businesses, and creative and innovative endeavors emerge on the world stage clothed in the majesty of transcendent excellence.

The work of cutting away the excess and pruning us back to the core vision is in preparation for the unveiling of His masterpiece—the sons of God and their release onto the world stage. The pruning comes to trigger supernatural increase and garner the maximum output from His investment.

The most important, productive position we can take at this time is stillness in His Presence, listening for His Voice and receiving fresh directions for 2019. The season ahead comes as a new dynamic with its own unique challenges—it is marked by a way we have not walked before. The willingness in our hearts to become nothing so that He can arise in us to become everything and receive all the Glory is a posture of submission to love inspired by wisdom. When Jesus shows up, He is the only Star, and all fall prostrate!

As the Word declares, in our flesh we cannot imagine or think of the exceedingly great things God has prepared for His people—for those who love Him! This is the reality of this moment. God is about to surprise beyond expectations those who submit to His process. Minds must be renewed and prepared to comprehend and receive what God is about to release. He is clearing away the excesses and narrowing focus, that eyes can see and process His revelation of the primary in completion and fullness.  The sons of the prophets understood the need for change and a new dynamic, they said to Elisha in 2 Kings 6:1-2:

 “See now, the place where we dwell with you is too small for us.  Please, let us go to the Jordan, and let every man take a beam from there, and let us make there a place where we may dwell.”  

In this passage the Hebrew word for ‘place’ also means a condition of the mind (Strong’s H4725). It is from a root word meaning to rise. The Jordan represents the Cross—the River of complete surrender and death to self—the preparation for crossing over to possess the Promised Land!  In this passage, as a word for today, God is saying that the Body of Christ has been living in a small place, that our minds need to be stretched and our hearts enlarged to contain the great thing He has stored up for us! God’s desire is for each of us to go down to the River—the place of absolute surrender, of letting go of the past, our good intentions, good deeds, our agendas, idols, self, comfort, ungodly beliefs etc. The place where we surrender to His cutting away of the excesses.

The River of sacrificial Love beckons us to come in and collect our beam—our contribution to the building of God’s House, a beam that fortifies and strengthens relationships. The Hebrew word for build is banah, from which we get the word for ‘son’ which is ben—as the builder of the family name (H1121). We have each been given a part in building up the family name of Jesus Christ and becoming built together as a Spiritual House, as we are transformed into His Bride. When we dwell together in this holy union, we become a force to be reckoned with, having power and authority to gather the Lord’s harvest and the Love to care for them.

 “Enlarge your house; build an addition.  Spread out your home, and spare no expense!  For you will soon be bursting at the seams.  Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities” Isaiah 54: 2-3

God is saying that it is now time to intentionally rise, ramp up, transcend, breakthrough, and prepare to penetrate the greater dimension of His Glory.  He is calling out to us to begin to move in step with Him in the next season—a season that demands a deeper place in Christ, in order to possess broader places in Him.  The River of Life in abundance awaits the bold and courageous!  Many will begin to pass over at Passover to possess the promises of God. You have been fully prepared and equipped for this day!

The Glory of God will descend through the perfecting of our love, unity and submission to His will. From that Glory the sending will begin—the sending of an army of saints who will possess nations and do mighty exploits in His name.  Yahweh is a covenant keeping God; He is standing ready to fulfill the covenants He made with us in His Word.  A multitude of angels are standing at attention, ready to be released to execute the will of God on Earth.  In these times of volatility, it is crucial to our faith to always remember that Yahweh is also the God of Resurrection—when things seem as if they are at their worst and the days look dark, that is when God says to look up, for your redemption draws near, and He moves suddenly to show forth His great power!  He Reigns!

Call For The Women

This word is written for women but is an important word for all! 

A woman’s voice of authority is now being released in fullness to have impact and to affect change in the spiritual and natural realms. The muzzle has been removed from a woman’s voice to decree the word of the Lord for such a time as this! Women have suffered thousands of years of imprisonment to demonic mind-sets. In western nations however, it has been only within the last century that true freedom and equality has begun to enter the lives of women on a large scale. This has been timed and purposed by God for a few reasons.

Resident within a woman is a force unique to her, that in God’s hand becomes an effective and powerful weapon—a weapon He has kept reserved and restricted and brought out for appointed times of history.  This force is nothing but the Lion of the tribe of Judah released through the peculiar passion unique to women, depicted in Mary the mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.  This force when harnessed in corporate woman, and released through union and agreement, becomes an explosive dunamis power—reserved by God for this notable hour of history. I believe God has allowed women to be restricted to a degree because the force of corporate woman if unleashed before its time—before it can be harnessed, directed and controlled by God through humility, submission and obedience—could bring harm to His precious daughters and hinder His unfolding plan.

The word harness means: to bring into conditions for effective use, as in – to harness the energy of the sun, or to harness water for electricity (dictionary.com). A harness is the bridle of a horse, used to restrain the power of the horse, and train and direct its movements.  God prepares his daughters for work in the ministry of God by training them in submission and the surrender of their wills for His glory and the fulfillment of His plans.  A wild stallion trained under the loving hands of his master, learns to become one with him, understanding the whisper of his voice,  the nuances of his gentle nudges and the guidance in his movements. Through the training, a mutual love and trust between horse and Master is developed. Wildness and rebellion is harnessed by love. the stallion becomes a portrait of majesty and will surrendered in adoration.

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with my eye. do not be like the horse or like the mule, which have no understanding, which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, else they will not come near you.” Psalm 32:8-9

God is presently removing from His daughters the bridle of  religion, ancient mind-sets against women, and the error and lies planted by the enemy. However He is bridling his daughters in a Harness named The Choice of Submitted Life—a life surrendered and yoked to him in His eternal love.

An army being prepared for the harvest fields

Everything taking place right now in every sphere, in politics, economics, weather and in society, is setting the stage for the release of the greatest harvest of souls in all of history.  All the saints of God are in preparation mode for this great event, as God does a deep cleansing work in the hearts of His people to clear it of all rebellion to His Word and to His Will.  Churches and Ministries are being re-fashioned to meet the challenges of the great influx of souls into the Kingdom as creative and innovative strategies are released from Heaven to receive and embrace them.

The release of the Harvest will affect and reform all aspects of life. The rising levels of offense, hatred and division we are seeing in the world right now is the evidence of the intensity of demonic resistance to the loss of souls they will suffer. A woman’s voice and position of authority is being now restored in its fullness to fight, to decree, to legislate in the spiritual realms and to occupy till He comes!

The training is tough and sometimes severe because the Call is so great

I understand very well the training and preparation necessary for the Call. When I first got saved 25 years ago I wore the crown of rebellion.  In the first church I became a part of—being ignorant of God’s Word and His ways—I told the Pastor in passing that I didn’t like listening to anyone, that if my father told me to do something I would do the opposite.  I am sure he was groaning loudly in spirit!  Over the years the training was intense and severe as God molded me and taught me His ways.  I could not see it, but could feel His hedge around me. I was restricted in a Holy Ghost trap and could not escape His love or His discipline.  In my rebellion to the restraints placed on me, God reminded me of the story of Helen Keller’s wild and unruly behaviour. I remembered that she was taken out to the cottage in the back to live alone with her teacher for a time of intense training. Through tears I remembered how she became a well-known author, lecturer and political activist who campaigned for women’s suffrage (Wikipedia).

I then read a little book describing the care of a shepherd for his sheep. The author described the behaviour of rebellious sheep that refused to obey its master’s voice. These sheep kept wandering off on their own, opening themselves to the attack of wolves.  After a time of grace, if the sheep continued to disobey, the shepherd would break its leg. He would then carry the sheep and hold him very close until it was healed—after the sheep would never stray again.

What does rebellion look like in the saints? It looks like the choice to stay offended, lack of love, stubbornness, control, hypocrisy, backbiting, contentiousness, unwillingness to yield and to get along, pride and arrogance, and a desire to “cast off  restraint.”  Sometimes in His incredible love, because of our hardheadedness God may have to take extreme measures to get through to us, or to allow life to teach us some hard lessons. In His great love God is always working on our behalf, for our protection and for training to be effective servants and leaders in His kingdom.

In the Bible, Jacob was known to be a deceiver who manipulated to get his own way.  In a strange encounter with God in Genesis 32:25-28, it tells us that Jacob wrestled with God all night. God touched the socket of his hip and it became out of joint.

“Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob’s hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.” But he said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!” So He said to him, “What is your name?” He said, “Jacob.” And He said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men and have prevailed.”

In the struggle to surrender our very strong wills to the Lord He gives us a new name—we become Israel Prince with God! I once heard a message preached on The Limp, where the speaker admonished us to never trust anyone who didn’t walk with a limp—of course he was speaking in the spirit, of one who walks before the Lord in brokenness and humility. This is the man or woman God can trust!

We have been called to live in an hour of extremes in the world, a volatile season in which God is requiring us to come forth in maturity. This means we must give up the fight, stop resisting God and His Word, and begin to resist the devil through a life of holiness, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless” (Gen. 17:1). God has deposited a great treasure in each one who belongs to him. It is now time for that treasure to come forth and shine!

Giving Birth To The Mighty Thing!

God has been speaking to me recently through the picture of an elephant’s pregnancy. God got my attention when within one week I encountered the message of the elephant three times.  A story was posted on social media in which a dog was comparing his pregnancy to an elephant’s.  The dog became pregnant and gave birth many times, while the elephant did not. Finally, the dog asks the elephant why she wasn’t giving birth? To which the elephant replied, “There is something I want you to understand. What I am carrying is not a puppy but an elephant. I only give birth to one in two years. When my baby hits the ground, the earth feels it. When my baby crosses the road human beings stop and watch in admiration, what I carry draws attention.  What I am carrying is mighty and great!”

God, has impregnated his Body with His Son—He is the Lion of Judah, not an elephant or a human.  God has been patiently waiting for the day when His Bride would be ready to give birth.  When this Lion hits the ground, the earth will shake!  Nations will stop to look and behold. The world will turn to see this great thing covered in the Shekinah Glory of God!  What the Body of Christ is carrying is Mighty and Great!  This birth will not happen until God gives the word, until He sees a Body free of rebellion and personal agenda, until He sees the surrendered will laid down before him as a gift—then He will announce the word and a multitude of women will deliver it:

“The Lord announces the word, and the women who proclaim it are a mighty throng: “Kings and armies flee in haste; the women at home divide the plunder. Even while you sleep among the sheep pens, the wings of my dove are sheathed with silver, its feathers with shining gold…The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands; the Lord has come from Sinai into his sanctuary.”

Of course, this is the heritage of all sons and daughters, this message is true for both, but this word is highlighting the daughters of God for a present move underway. God is sounding a trumpet for His daughters to come forth in the Spirit of humility and a surrendered life to birth His Son in the earth—let the earth tremble at the Presence of the Lord!

The New Wine, The Oil & Donald Trump

 

“Then He turned to His disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see; for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it.” Luke 10:21 -24

What an incredible hour we have been chosen to serve the Lord in. Things are shifting rapidly and accelerating at such a rate that it is sometimes hard to keep up! God’s people that are alive today have the privilege of seeing historic and notable events that are altering the fabric of reality, tearing the veils of deception, exposing the things hidden in darkness and moving the markers of ancient strongholds once thought immovable!  The man that God is using to do this is President Donald Trump!

With Wednesday’s announcement acknowledging Jerusalem as the Eternal Capital of Israel and the moving of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, the world and the kingdom of darkness went into a tailspin! It is key for the people of God to understand the magnitude of the spiritual ramifications of this stupendous event, to interpret the times and have clarity on the movements of God!  Jerusalem though not mentioned in any other holy book, is mentioned 767 times in the Bible—referred to as the City of God the Eternal City and the eternal seat of His Throne!

“At that time they will call Jerusalem The Throne of the LORD, and all nations will gather in Jerusalem to honor the name of the LORD. No longer will they follow the stubbornness of their evil hearts.” Jeremiah 3:17 

President Donald Trump will be marked as one of the greatest Presidents of all time because He has chosen to align himself with God’s will, with the Word of God and His heart for Jerusalem.  Donald Trump has been anointed by God for the job and carries a Breaker Anointing to smash through these ancient barriers and demonic stronghold fiercely guarded over centuries.  By recognizing Jerusalem as the Eternal Capital, he is aligning America strategically with God’s will in this hour. By establishing the United States embassy in Jerusalem, he has secured for America a place in the City of God.  This is very significant! An Embassy is not only installed in a land, but it is also secured, fortified and protected as the official representation of another Government. It carries all the power and backing of that Government—in this case the United States of America. However, in this instance we cannot ignore the spiritual significance of an Embassy representing a government whose Commander in Chief is also in the service of the Government of the Kingdom of God, and aligned to His purposes!

As the Breaker that is King Jesus, works through Donald Trump to smash the barriers, and the embassy becomes established in Jerusalem, other nations that support the Word of God will begin to follow suit.  Now is the time for the leaders of nations to WAKE UP, step out of fear, fear of repercussions, political correctness, personal agendas, elite demonic cliques, and be courageous to do the right thing in the fear of the Lord, as the word admonishes in Zechariah chapters 12-14 (chapters well worth studying in regard to Jerusalem).

The hour is now, the pace is fast and accelerated as God continues to move in power to secure KEY PLACES OF AUTHORITY in the Earth: The City of God—Jerusalem, the Supreme Court, hundreds of conservative judges about to be appointed, and the heads of key positions in all spheres of Life!

“Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths. “FOR OUT OF ZION SHALL GO FORTH THE LAW, AND THE WORD OF THE LORD FROM JERUSALEM. Isaiah 2:3 

About 10 years ago, I had a dream I believe is for this hour: I dreamt that I entered a room where a Pastor and an intercessor were seated. I had on a long trench coat, and I reached deep into one of the pockets and brought out a bottle of wine.  The bottle was open, and a drop had spilled on the ground. We all were focused on the drop!  The label on the wine said 414 and beneath it said twenty-four years. The intercessor then said, “I want that wine, I am going to try and find it!” She left the room to make calls to find it then came back; I asked if she found it and she said, “I found it, but it costs too much!”

It wasn’t until about 4 years later that God gave me the interpretation when I was writing my book In His Image on the significance of the call on women for such a time as this! I was writing about Esther and being called for in this hour when I saw the reference 4:14 and God spoke to me!

“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14 

I understood from the Lord that the bottle of wine had been opened, but what we have experienced so far has been only a drop of the wine; that there was a time coming where the whole bottle RESERVED FOR THE LAST would be made available!  This wine was a very costly wine reserved for radical lovers of God willing to pay the price for it! A people like Esther who will rise up to say, “If I perish, I perish!”  The 24 years written on the bottle represented 24 years the wine had been aging!  I was radically saved in an encounter with the Lord in 1993 and since understanding the dream have been waiting until 2017-2018 for the fulfillment.  I believe it is possible the drop that was spilt fell on millions of hungry saints who came to Catch The Fire in 1994—January 2018 would make it 24 years the wine has been ageing.  As I have kept this word in my heart for years meditating on it, the Lord gave me another related 4:14 scripture:

“…So he said, “These are the two anointed ones, who stand beside the Lord of the whole earth.” Zechariah 4:14 

The words anointed ones literally translated from the Hebrew mean SONS OF OIL.  This is a very significant chapter describing the completing phase of God’s work represented in the Headstone—sons of oil in union with ChristTHE HEADSTONE; prepared and released, FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS! In verse 1 the angel awakens Zechariah out of a state of dullness “…as if he were asleep!” I believe God is about to release a great Awakening!  It is a time when the Holy Spirit steps out in a MOVEMENT OF GREAT POWER to take down the great mountains and obstacles in the path of His people as they shout and decree “GRACE, GRACE to it!”(Zech 4:6-9).  

Zerubbabel means: one who has left Babylon, and represents Israel coming into a new place; released to work and complete the House of God as the ones who laid the foundation! (verse 9).  They work with all the people of God who have left spiritual Babylon in this hour, to complete the works of God!  For about 10 years also, God has been highlighting to me Haggai 2:18-19:

‘Consider now from this day forward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, from the day that the foundation of the LORD’s temple was laid—consider it:  Is the seed still in the barn? As yet the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have not yielded fruit. But from this day I will bless you.’ “

Every year I check the date on the Jewish calendar for this date, but have never seen the full release of the promises as I was believing for. But this year after speaking at a significant conference in Ecuador, where I felt a real shift in the times, God reminded me about Haggai, I checked the date and saw that the 24th  was on December 12th and  also the first day of Hanukkah—the festival of UNENDING OIL!  He then reminded me that He uses both calendars and I discovered that the 24th day on the Gregorian calendar fell on the weekend of Rosh Hashanah.  I happened to be at a conference that Barbara Yoder and Ryan LeStrange were speaking at in St. Thomas Canada.  It was a powerful time where God shifted things for me, told me to close some doors and showed me some new doors to walk through for 5778 and 2018—the year of the open door!

In the year of the open door, the Wine has aged for 24 years, and is ready to be poured out. In this year also, the 24th day of the ninth month begins the season for pouring out of the UNENDING OIL upon the Zech.4:14 SONS OF OIL, Esther 4:14 for such a time as this!  I say, let us get ready for a downpour of the OIL and of the WINE!  God is about to unleash a vast army of radical lovers of God who have overcome fear; they will turn their cities upside down like the early disciples were accused of (Acts 17:6). We have arrived at the appointed time of History to count the cost and drink the Costly Wine—If I perish, I perish!

When it became time for the children of Israel to enter and possess the Land promised to them, that was to become their inheritance, the Bible states “the Lord their God was with them,” and, “…the shout of a king was among them,” (Num. 23:21).  This King is Jesus!

The fame of Israel and the fame of their God went on ahead of them to the land they were about to possess.  Great fear fell on the people of the land, and all the enemies of God when they heard that the armies of God were MARCHING FEARLESSLY and headed their way!  Rahaba very wise woman recognized that she was on the losing side and made the choice to take her stand on the side of God:

“I know that the Lord has given this land to you and that a great fear of you has fallen on us…We have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt.  When we heard of it, our hearts melted and everyone’s courage failed because of you. FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS GOD IN HEAVEN ABOVE AND ON EARTH BELOW.  Joshua 2:9-11 

“I AM TYING THE NOOSE” A New Day is Dawning!

Recently I was praying about the political moves presently being launched against President Trump when I heard the Lord say, “I am tying the noose!”  This thought stayed with me throughout the day until I began to question what the expression actually meant.  I believe God was leading me into a revelation by giving me a Holy Ghost push to investigate.  The saying has a few meanings, but the one God landed on was, to set a trap, to ensnare!  I sensed that God was saying in this that He had things under control and a plan was in the works!  Our God is omnipotent and omniscient! He knows exactly where the hidden secrets lie and is a master at exposing deception.  The things that are unfolding in the political realm right now are all pieces of the noose forming and working to entrap the enemy in his own schemes—a move that will ultimately release a wave of righteousness in the greatest Awakening of all times!

As I pondered this God led me to the story of Queen Esther, the Bride who had gained the ear of the King.  Because Mordecai, Esther’s uncle refused to bow to Haman—an evil ruler possessed by the devil—he conceived a plot to annihilate all the people of God, and sent out a decree for their destruction. However, God had a plan! God prepared a raised-up Mordecai and Esther, two servants who did not “…count their lives unto death,” who were willing to perish for the sake of the kingdom and knew how to fast and pray!

Haman’s rage against Mordecai for his refusal to bow inspired him to take action to destroy him; his plan: “…Let a gallows be made, fifty cubits high, and in the morning suggest to the king that Mordecai be hanged on it…”   In the story God caused a series of events to take place that saw Haman hanged on the very same gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai “SO THEY HANGED HAMAN ON THE GALLOWS THAT HE HAD PREPARED FOR MORDECAI” (7:10).  I believe that President Trump will be fully vindicated in God’s timing!

The number eight represents a new beginning or the beginning of a new season. We have now entered the Jewish year 5778 and are about to enter the year 2018 on the Gregorian calendar—a year where we shift into a new dynamic of kingdom realities!  This will be the year where the people of God drive back the forces of darkness and destroy their evil agenda to limit the kingdom of God our King. The Lion of Judah is arising with an army having the faces of lions—AN ARMY THAT WILL STEP FORWARD WITH COURAGE AND BOLDNESS TO POSSESS THE GATES OF THEIR ENEMIES!

We have entered the era of the intercessor, ones who has persevered in faith and in faithfulness—you have gained the King’s attention!  The Lord said that He is about to give His signet ring to many and crown them with great authority to usher in the DAY OF RECKONING, awakening and reformation—a new day of freedom from the darkness of oppression that has gripped many.  In order to understand what He meant I checked the word reckoning and it means: to settle accounts, an accounting for things received or done. God is about to settle accounts with the enemy for the things he has done, and vindicate His people!

“And the king held out the golden scepter toward Esther. So Esther arose and stood before the king, and said, “If it pleases the king, and if I have found favor in his sight and the thing seems right to the king and I am pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to revoke the letters devised by Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to annihilate the Jews who are in all the king’s provinces…”

God’s army will be given keys to unlock prison doors to those who are bound and without hope, to give them beauty for ashes. Those marked for destruction will be receive new names and be marked for Life and for Glory!  God is once again laying foundations that will undergird His purposes to unlock the Gates of righteousness for the King of Glory to enter!  The next age will be an era of Holy Spirit enlightenment in all spheres of society.

Much can be gleaned from the book of Esther, but Esther chapter 8, and especially verse 8, is noteworthy for all the people of God for this hour!  And as the United States of America was raised up as a light to other nations, chapter 8 is particularly pointed for the present administration.

Then King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther and Mordecai the Jew, “Indeed, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and they have hanged him on the gallows because he tried to lay his hand on the Jews.  ESTHER 8:8 – “YOU YOURSELVES WRITE A DECREE CONCERNING THE JEWS, AS YOU PLEASE, IN THE KING’S NAME, AND SEAL IT WITH THE KING’S SIGNET RING; FOR WHATEVER IS WRITTEN IN THE KING’S NAME AND SEALED WITH THE KING’S SIGNET RING NO ONE CAN REVOKE.”

There is a Holy movement now underway that will see the people of God established in the unction to move in their kingly anointing, and to decree the Word of the Lord with authority and power.

I believe that God is saying to His people to GET READY FOR THE BREAKOUT! THINGS ARE ABOUT TO TURN AROUND.  This is not a time to be dull or complacent, it is a time to become the Elijah generation chosen for such a time as this, to gird up our loins to run the race of a lifetime!

“Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’ ” Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain. So Ahab rode away and went to Jezreel. THEN THE HAND OF THE LORD CAME UPON ELIJAH; AND HE GIRDED UP HIS LOINS AND RAN AHEAD OF AHAB…”  1Kings 18:44-46 

Elijah told his servant to go again when nothing was seen—after seven tries a new season was about to begin!    Sometimes things can seem very hopeless, and we are not able to see any light at the end of the tunnel, UNTIL GOD MOVES to change everything! This occurred in past awakenings, where whole societies were transformed by one move of God!  The Lights went on and the darkness could not remain!  Under the faithful service of Esther and Mordecai the fate of a people was radically changed, night turned to day and mourning into great joy!

“SO MORDECAI WENT OUT FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE KING IN ROYAL APPAREL OF BLUE AND WHITE, WITH A GREAT CROWN OF GOLD AND A GARMENT OF FINE LINEN AND PURPLE; AND THE CITY OF SHUSHAN REJOICED AND WAS GLAD. THE JEWS HAD LIGHT AND GLADNESS, JOY AND HONOR. AND IN EVERY PROVINCE AND CITY, WHEREVER THE KING’S COMMAND AND DECREE CAME, THE JEWS HAD JOY AND GLADNESS, A FEAST AND A HOLIDAY. THEN MANY OF THE PEOPLE OF THE LAND BECAME JEWS, BECAUSE FEAR OF THE JEWS FELL UPON THEM. 15-17

Eight will mark the beginning of a new era of awakenings and revival, Light and Joy!  Don’t give in to doubt and fear; if you can’t see it, just begin to decree it and faith will begin to arise!  Decree it daily until you begin to see it with eyes of faith! God holds the steps of the journey from its beginning to its completion, He has the power to create doors where doors do not presently exist—nothing is impossible with Him!  It is time to get ready for active duty, the Ship is changing course and turning around! I heard the Lord say, “Tell the armies of the Lord to arise, stand on your feet and be ready!”

“A copy of the document was to be issued as a decree in every province and published for all people, SO THAT THE JEWS WOULD BE READY ON THAT DAY TO AVENGE THEMSELVES ON THEIR ENEMIES. Esther 8:13

Keys to Transform Your World!

Prophecy, possesses the ability to stir the spirit and raise expectations of experiencing and seeing the Hand of God move in our lives and in the world! Yet many have collected personal prophecies for years and not seen their fulfillment. Having a heart of continual expectation with little evidence of fruit, can sometimes lead to disappointment, discouragement and cynicism. It is important to have understanding of the keys and tools God provides for receiving the abundant life He promises in His Word. There may be the belief that we are waiting on God to move and we get frustrated in the wait; and yes, there is a timing factor involved, however, God’s appointed time to step into the Promised Land of dreams is scheduled to coincide with our arrival at the Gate named Fullness of Maturity! God is waiting for us to grow up, to become the leaders of transformation He has prepared for a new age of authority. These are Leaders of character, supernatural insight, having the unction to be the revelation of Christ, and release the deposit of His Life He has placed inside each one.

The video below contains some keys that with application will become the springboard that launches the revelation and rich deposit of Christ in you—the hope of Glory!

 

God’s Armada is Now Moving Out to Sea!

I am so encouraged by the experience I had on the morning of the Day of Atonement. I was in prayer with the Lord and had a sense of a revelation on the horizon, as we are in the shifting of times into new dimensions of God’s Glory.  I had asked the Lord to help me understand and process this time with wisdom, and not with personal emotional desire.  After a wonderful time of communion in His Presence, I opened my Bible and it fell open to 1 Kings chapter 22, I read:

 “Jehoshaphat also built a fleet of trading ships to sail to Ophir for gold. But the ships never set sail, for they met with disaster in their home port of Ezion-geber.”  22:48 NLT

 This is an account that God had highlighted to me in past years.  Now the scriptures say that Jehoshaphat did right in the eyes of the Lord, but he did make some big mistakes!  His first mistake was joining with King Ahab in battle—Jezebel’s husband.  After this battle Jehu the seer said to him, “Why should you help the wicked and love those who hate the Lord?” Because of this God was angry with Jehoshaphat! Jehoshaphat’s second mistake was to ally himself with Ahab’s son Ahaziah in an endeavor to build ships at the port Ezion Geber, with the intent of getting gold from Ophir. Eliezer prophesied against Jehoshaphat because of this:

“After this Jehoshaphat king of Judah allied himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who acted very wickedly. And he allied himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish, and they made the ships in Ezion Geber. But Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, “Because you have allied yourself with Ahaziah, the LORD has destroyed your works.” Then the ships were wrecked, so that they were not able to go to Tarshish.”  2 Chronicles 20:35-37

 As I pondered this account, I thought to myself that even though the Lord has been very good to me, and I have seen many dreams come to pass, the big dream and vision God has given me, kept hidden in my heart over numerous years, has never come to pass—the ship that carried my dream has never left port!

I began to wonder if I, my parents, or my ancestors had ever entered into partnerships that God was not pleased with. I asked the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me in a prayer of repentance.  I stood before God’s Throne of Mercy and began to systematically repent for every type of unholy yoke we as a family could have entered into. As I was slowly allowing the Holy Spirit to guide me in prayer, with my eyes closed I saw a picture of a heavy chain across the screen of my mind, from left to right.  My eyes were intently focused on the chain, so I wasn’t really paying attention to the full picture as it was a bit foggy. But there was a sense of something on the left and something large on the right, and behind it was very blue. Something then came down with great force, so fast that I did not see what it was, and snapped the chain in two!  Immediately a burst of energy flooded my chest that took my breath away, and I gasped in great surprise! I asked the Lord, WHAT WAS THAT! My eyes were still closed and I had a sudden realization that it was a large ship on the right that had been held by the chain, and now that it was broken, the ship began to slowly move out to sea! THE SHIP WAS LEAVING PORT! Hallelujah!

Immediately I knew that what I had experienced in the Spirit was about to become reality for many who have been prepared for this hour of history to shift with God into a new levels of His Glory—passionate saints who have been given big dreams but had not seen them materialize to date! This is a significant year in God’s purposes. It is a year of trouble and seeming chaos, HOWEVER, it is the year of the beginning of a Reprieve, the year of the Favor of the Lord where the Spirit of the Lord will rest heavily on a prepared people, a year of release and the thrusting out of the saints—an anointed and appointed time for the dreams of God planted in His people to materialize!

It is now the new Jewish year 5778—the year of the door and new beginnings. In this time of chaos and darkness looming on the horizon, GOD’S ARMADA is leaving Port, sent out onto the great Sea of Humanity! The ships are moving out in the season of Harvest—the time of a very significant Feast of Tabernacles, which is a celebration for the Great Journey that has brought us to this day, and the Ingathering of the Great Harvest. To the Jewish people the Fast of Tabernacles also represents the DIVINE CLOUDS OF GLORY that covered Israel during the 40 years the wilderness.

“Arise shine for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. Behold darkness covers the earth and deep darkness the peoples…Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the ABUNDANCE OF THE SEA shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you…They shall bring gold and incense, And they shall proclaim the praises of the LORD… AND I WILL GLORIFY THE HOUSE OF MY GLORY. Isaiah 60:1,5-7

I asked the lord where the ships were going and He said, “They are on a quest for Gold of Ophir.”  This Gold is the GLORY OF GOD that the Bride wears— representing the great Harvest of souls and all the provision and resources with which to gather the Harvest and build the House of His Glory, “… At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir” (Ps. 45:9). King Solomon also built ships to bring back gold from Ophir.

“King Solomon also built a fleet of ships at Ezion Geber, which is near Elath on the shore of the Red Sea, in the land of Edom… And they went to Ophir, and acquired four hundred and twenty talents of gold from there, and brought it to King Solomon.”  1 Kings 9:26-28 

Much provision is about to be released to fulfill the dreams of God! Four Hundred and twenty talents equal sixteen tons of Gold! It is now time for dreams to be fulfilled as the Ship of Dreams heads out into the Great Sea, leaving the Port of Ezion Geber in strength and great authority; Ezion Geber means the spine, or STRENGTH OF A WARRIOR!

God’s Armada is leaving in the Port, Strength of a Warrior—an Armada comprised of many types of ships to accomplish His great Campaign—there are passenger fellow-ships, great rescue ships like the Carpathia, Mighty War ships armed and powerful, Hospital ships providing support to heal the Harvest and the wounded, Cargo ships loaded with supplies, Oil tankers carrying oil reserves, Apostle-ships—apostolic, prophetic networks equipped to lead the Campaign, in mighty Carrier ships, providing defense and air support for attack sorties.

The many disasters caused by recent hurricanes, and the volatility of present world concerns, has caused President Trump to send out various types of military ships to protect and to bring relief. This is a prophetic picture of a move of God now underway! President Trump has recently commissioned a new warship—The USS Gerald Ford—the first of a next generation of nuclear powered aircraft carriers. According to Wikipedia, an aircraft carrier is: warship that serves as a SEAGOING AIRBASE, equipped for carrying, arming, deploying, and recovering aircraft. Typically, it is the Capital (Leading) ship of a fleet, as it allows a naval force to project air power worldwide without depending on local bases for staging aircraft operations.  A seagoing airbase is a picture of the Church now untethered from the building, moving outside of its walls into the marketplace—the Sea of Humanity.

As I thought of the things taking place in the world, I said, Yes God, it is time for You to do something!  I heard Him say, “Yes! And what I am about to do, I am going to do through My people!”  I then thought of the marvels that God had done through His servants under the Old Covenant—Noah built an Ark, Elijah stopped the rain, Moses parted the Red Sea, Joshua caused the sun and moon to stand still, David destroyed Goliath, Israel conquered great enemy armies:

“…through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Hebrews 11:33-34

The saints of God now function under the New Covenant—a better Covenant, one that allows the very King of kings to dwell in us by His Holy Spirit, in the Power of His ResurrectionNothing is impossible to the people of God! Great exploits, signs and great wonders will be done through the people of God in the days ahead!  So, let us gird up our loins like Elijah, get ready by humbling ourselves before the Lord of Heaven and Earth, and pray the prayer of repentance that always precedes a great move of God! Jehoshaphat made the mistake of becoming unequally yoked with someone who was defiled by sin and rebellion against God. God has said in His word:

“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?  And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?  And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM. I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.” Therefore “COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE SEPARATE, SAYS THE LORD. DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN, AND I WILL RECEIVE YOU.” “I WILL BE A FATHER TO YOU, AND YOU SHALL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS, SAYS THE LORD ALMIGHTY.” 2 Corinthians 8:14-18

Dear Father, God of Heaven and Earth, Creator of the universe; all powerful, mighty and majestic God, holy are you lord! We stand before Your Throne of Mercy today. I ask your forgiveness for myself, my parents and my ancestors back to Adam for ungodly and unholy covenants, alliances, pacts, agreements, partnerships, and friendships we have participated in that yoked us in a defiling way to the kingdom of darkness. Forgive us and our ancestors for opening the doors of the gates of Hades into our lives and our families lives.  Forgive us for opening doors through sexual immorality, business partnerships, and financial agreements. Lord, in agreement with the Blood that cancels and removes all sin, in agreement with Christ and in agreement with the power of the mighty name of Jesus, we ask that all verdicts, consequences and reaping effects be now nullified and cancelled, broken by the power of the sword of Your Word. Break now every ungodly soul tie binding me to the kingdom of darkness. Lord in Your great power, break once and for all the chain that binds, tethers and restricts me from now moving out in the Strength of a Warrior, to fulfill the dreams you have planted in my heart. May I set sail on your Dream Carrier with You as You chart My course. Loose me now in the Resurrection Power of the Holy Spirit!  Let my ship of dreams set sail with integrity, majesty, power and great authority into the Sea of Humanity to gather in Your beautiful Harvest. Lead me safely through the storms that may arise as I move out with You to accomplish Your will. Amen

Lessons of the Carpathia and The Coming Release of Glory!

 

Many years ago, I had a significant dream that has since stayed with me, as I have known that this dream was for a season in time reserved by God.  In the dream, I saw the proud Titanic ship heading out on its course. Directly in its path stood a giant white Rock, jutting upwards from the sea into the sky.  In the arrogance of its power, strength and majesty, the need for sufficient lifeboats was neglected as it was said that the Titanic could not sink.  The Titanic collided with the Rock and began to sink as many flailed about in the water desperate for help.  The Lord began to reveal many lessons from this incident. The Titanic represented the proud religion of the mainstream traditional Church, deceived by its own power and might into believing it could never fall. It did not understanding that it was accountable to Christ and was on a collision course with The Rock that is Christ, standing in His Holiness directly in its path, with which it would one day collide.

As Christians, we find ourselves in this present time facing and onslaught of demonic winds, blowing with increasing hurricane strength against the Word of God, righteousness and the principles of God—and those who stand for it. The mainstream church in this hour is precariously teetering on the edge of the cliff into secularism and hedonism, as it dangerously drifts from the foundation of the Word of God, wavering on the sure principles of God.

“Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” Matthew 7:22-27

There is a clear line drawn by God between good and evil, sin and righteousness, Life and death. For Leaders delegated with the sacred trust of shepherding and protecting God’s people, there can be no grey areas, the Word of God is clear, if you are not on God’s side representing His Word and His Kingdom, you are actually working against Him!  God in His wisdom, mercy and longsuffering has not moved against the much iniquity, corruption and deception in the mainstream church over the years. I believe this has been partly to maintain Christianity’s reputation as a beacon of light set on a hill, as a hope for the world. However, I do believe when those that are called the church, choose to no longer maintain that Light, begins to emulate the world, drift into strange doctrines and gross darkness, it is headed for an encounter with The Rock.

“Anyone who isn’t with Me opposes Me, and anyone who isn’t working with Me is actually working against Me.” Matthew 12:30 

When satan attempts to invade the Bride of Christ with satanic doctrines under the guise of ‘inclusion’ and ‘progressive ideology’ snatching young lives, stealing the futures of little children, and having the potential to destroy an entire generation—God will act, it is only a matter of time!  God waited four hundred years to the time when iniquity had reached its fullness, before He moved to take out His chosen people (Gen 15:13). When the leadership of God’s Church begins to cave under the pressure and onslaught of the world’s satanic agenda and begins to endorse and give its approval to such things as gay marriage, encouraging five-year-old children to embrace transgenderism (that the American College of Pediatricians has labeled child abuse), that church or denomination needs to beware as Jesus said:

“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!”  Matthew 18:6-7 

Unfortunately, these are the times we are living in! Some churches and large denominations are beginning to cave, falling into the traps of deception. However, out of the rubble of its collision with Christ, the Bride—the true Church will arise in Glory! IN THE TIME OF GROSS DARKNESS, THE TRUE CHURCH OF GOD WILL BEGIN TO SHINE! Isaiah 60: 1-2 is a passage that is quoted a lot these days and one that most Christians know very well.   But a few questions do arise out of this passage with close examination, such as: Who is going to shine? Is it the mainstream Church as it is now stands? And what does it mean to shine? What is gross darkness?

“Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.”

This passage is actually an address to Israel, but it speak also to all true children of God. The season that we are now entering, marked by Rosh Hashanah 5778 and the blowing of Trumpets, will be a Day that demands that a courageous people arise, who fearlessly take a stand for Christ and hold to the Word of God—regardless of the cost! These are the ones spoken of in Daniel who know their God and do exploits in His name!  Amidst gross darkness covering the Earth they shine with the glory of God that rests upon them.  The Hebrew word for shine in this passage also mean to SET ON FIRE and the word for risen upon you means to irradiate and SHOOT FORTH BEAMS OF HIS GLORY.  The saints of God who will not compromise with the world’s standards, will arise as a Glorious Army set on fire with passion for their God, radiant with His Glory. They are SERVANTS of the Living God! Serving His purposes to establish His Dominion on Earth, carrying His Heart for the children and the lost. They will work closely with Him to gather His harvest and those floundering in despair in the waters of doubt and disillusionment, as the counterfeit ship of mainstream christianity begins to sink under the waves of its pride and deception.

The true Church of God is being made ready and prepared to save and rescue these precious ones. God loves the sinner and calls us to lay down our lives for them, not to endorse the sin! With the sinking of the Titanic there were not enough Life boats for the great number of people on board the ship; the Lord revealed to me that the Life boats represented local churches, house churches and small groups. These were saints prepared in advance, who had counted the cost, were willing to make sacrifices, were fashioned to scoop up the lost in arms of love, and nourish them back to Life with the water of His true Word. I was sharing my dream of the Titanic with a pastor friend who revealed that his grandmother and her family were on the RMS Carpathia—the ship prepared by God to rescue the people of the Titanic.  What He shared was astounding! This is his grandmother’s account:

On the night of April 15, 1912, those first-class passengers were invited to and enjoying the Captain’s banquet.  Fine food of the day, music and gaiety pervaded the banquet hall.  In the middle of the meal a message was delivered to the Captain at his table.  His countenance became serious and immediately he ordered the banquet to end and for all passengers to immediately return to their cabins and stay there.  No explanation was given for this. Obediently and without question, the Captain’s orders were followed.  All passengers, including grandmother’s family, were locked in their cabin.  Before long, all the lights on the ship went out.  Soon the cabin became extremely cold as the heat was turned off.  Only a thin wall of steel came between the family and the frigid North Atlantic.  Huddled together and wrapped in blankets, the family tried to stay warm and sleep in the darkness of their small locked cabin.  In the early hours of the morning, and before sunrise, the sound of the engines stopped.  Hours later, the crew unlocked the cabins for all the passengers and they were allowed to come up on deck.  Grandma remembered vividly crying and wailing as she had never heard before.  As she came on deck with her family she saw many people, mostly women and some children, all wrapped in blankets and wailing uncontrollably.  These were the 705 survivors from the lifeboats of the Titanic.  Another 1,523 souls perished in the frigid waters.  Suddenly the passengers of the Carpathia understood why the banquet and gaiety had stopped.  They understood why they endured the cold and the dark.  The wise Captain of the Carpathia realized that it was not a time for feasting but for rescue.  All hands were needed on deck and could not be distracted with other duties.  Steam from the boilers must be routed from electrical generators and heating plants so that every bit of power could go to the engines to propel the ship to the sight of the tragedy.  Souls were in peril.

Pastor Ricke Harris is now stationed in Guam with His wife Cathy: We could draw some parallels to our Christian life in all of this.  Which one of us would not want to stay at the Captain’s table and enjoy the banquet of the good things of God.  Yet, while many are content only to enjoy the feast, there are soul’s in peril. Flesh would rather only enjoy the banquet table rather than feel the heart of the Captain and man the lifeboats for the rescue.  The harvest is great, but the laborers are few.  Let us labor while it is yet day, for the night comes when no man can work.  Father, give us grace to deny ourselves, take up our cross, and enter the rescue.  The souls of men and women are in peril.

Revelation chapter 12 prophecies the birth a Man Child (KJV), the Greek word used in this passage depicts a mature son, not a baby. This Man Child represents the coming forth onto the world stage of a company of mature saints and leaders fashioned in fire in union with Christ, for such a time as this! The world is about to experience Isaiah 60 and the appearance of the Man Child is purposed to coincide with the need of this hour.  Yes, the world is experiencing, earthquakes, hurricanes, fire and floods but this is not related to the gross darkness of Isaiah 60.  Gross darkness is when the depravity of mankind is at its lowest, when the enemy has come in like a flood and the cup of iniquity is filling up to its fullness.  As the enemy attempts to do his best, then IT IS TIME TO LIFT UP OUR HEADS AND BEHOLD OUR KING, WHO WILL LIFT HIS SCEPTER, RAISE A STANDARD AND FLOOD THE EARTH WITH HIS GLORY THROUGH A PEOPLE OF GLORY!

“His name shall endure forever; His name shall continue as long as the sun. And men shall be blessed in Him; All nations shall call Him blessed.  Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things!  And blessed be His glorious name forever! And let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen.”  Psalm 72:17-19 

Two Conditions For the Coming Awakening!

The world has entered an extremely volatile season where battles are intensifying on every front. The kingdom of darkness is mobilized and launching an offensive using a small number of key people strategically placed to shout down any attempt at a return to normalcy, morality and the traditional Biblical values that has sustained societies overtime.  Godly and righteous virtues are being eroded before our eyes as we stand in the beginning of a possible shift into a new world order where children are taught that they can choose their gender. The push toward transgenderism has reached a frenzy in North America and Europe where Governments are attempting to force schools and churches to accept their agenda and values.  The prospect of this new world may seem bleak and hopeless—BUT FOR GOD!

God is seated on His Throne, and every knee will bow and declare that Jesus Christ is Lord as His Word declares!  I am highlighting this situation only to emphasize that the encroachment of this New demonic World Order demands that a new breed of Christian ARISE!  The Sons of God are being challenged by God to now RISE UP with COURAGEOUS BOLDNESS! THE WORLD IS GROANING AND IN TRAVAIL FOR THEIR APPEARING!  The present condition of the world brings to the forefront the absolute necessity for the people of God to not only rise up and be counted, but also that the hearts of His people are ones that He can use powerfully and effectively to overcome the darkness with His Light. As God gets ready to unleash revival fire, and Awakening all across the Globe there are two conditions that need to be addressed that will unlock the floodgates of Heaven, and release the weighty Presence of God brooding over the planet right now.

Death & Life are in the Tongue

The first is the condition of our mouths and the fragrance being released from our words. The Lord brought this to my attention recently as I was watching the news on TV; I heard people referring to President Trump in very derogatory terms, in a dishonoring way, and I felt a grieved in my spirit.  As I watched him being ferociously attacked I began to pray.  As I prayed I had a clear revelation of the magnitude of God’s power and authority to produce any change He desired, that He was in possession of all knowledge and of every hidden thing that could vindicate President Trump and expose evil agendas.  However, at the same time I received that revelation the Lord asked a question, “How have my people and My intercessors spoken about President Obama while he was president; how have my people spoken of leaders that I have allowed to rule in my wisdom and for my purposes…with honor or dishonor?”  I was confronted with the question, of whether the people of God are any better than the world when it comes to dishonoring rhetoric?  I began think about the judgments and even hatred that I have sometimes heard coming from both sides. Again, I was grieved and convicted, I had to check my own heart—was my heart representing the Heart of God, His principles and the ways of God!

The Word of God says that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks! I then thought of the meekness of Moses. Moses did not presume to think that he had God all figured out, he pleaded for God to show him His ways and His Glory!  I thought of David who was said to be a man after God’s own Heart. David made the decision not to touch King Saul, the anointed leader, even though he was borderline insane and trying to kill him.  David chose to honor God’s decisions, and His wisdom—a wisdom that was higher than his, unsearchable and beyond his understanding.  David trusted in God’s timing and his faithfulness to fulfill His promises in His own way!  Through all his trials, David was being tested in his character, his faithfulness and in his ability to stand under extreme pressure and not be shaken, as his future position would require. In the same manner, God is now testing a vast army of David like warriors raised up to take down a Goliath system! God has not forgotten His promises and His word!

Paul was also severely tested and refined as a vessel chosen to minister the Life of Christ in a new season of the breaking forth of a profound shift into to a new world order ordained by God.  Paul taught and modeled the importance of submission, accountability and honoring of leaders in positions of authority. When Ananais commanded that Paul be struck, Paul called him a whitewashed wall. When Paul found out that Ananais was the High Priest he quickly repented and said, “I did not know, brethren, that he was the high priest; for it is written, ‘YOU SHALL NOT SPEAK EVIL OF A RULER OF YOUR PEOPLE'” (Acts 23:5).

Proverbs 18:21 says that death and life are in the power of the tongue!  The mature sons of God prepared for this hour to serve the purposes of the Living God, must be ones whose hearts have been purified to become containers of His Love, who have worked diligently with the Holy Spirit to master self-control and tame their tongues. “…IF ANYONE DOES NOT STUMBLE IN WORD, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body” (Jam. 3:2).

God reminded me of a few incidents in the past where He had taught me these principles:  Years ago, I was leading an intercessory group at a church I was attending, in my personal prayer time God clearly told me that He wanted us to pray for a nearby church and Christian school that was belonged to it.  When I told the Pastor, he insisted we were not to pray for this church! I found this strange and I was a bit angry as I was certain of what God had said.  But I knew I was being tested and would not go against the Pastor’s wishes. However, I pressed him for a reason and eventually he answered that there was too much criticism of the school where many of the intercessor’s children attended.  I came to an agreement with the pastor that we would spend much time in repentance before we prayed, which we did.  Each intercessor repented for words spoken, and judgments and attitudes towards the teachers in the school, the pastor and the leaders of the church.  After a time of repentance, when we began to pray, the Holy Spirit moved powerfully and many began to receive pictures and visions and great joy was released!  One intercessor saw a vision of fire running through the halls of the school and I saw Jesus hovering above the Church and the school waving a banner, shouting Jubilee!  It was a powerful prayer meeting!  One week later we got reports that revival had broken out in the school, that the children were being slain in the spirit, falling under the power of God and speaking in tongues!  Revival later broke out in the church also, and without anyone knowing about our prayer meeting they gave an offering of $10, 000 to the building of our new facility

When Brethren Dwell in Unity Power is released!

The second condition God highlighted to me was the principle of unity!  God brought another incident to mind related to the same intercessory group I was leading.  We were a group of about twelve to fifteen people and we were having very powerful prayer meetings. However, there was criticism and discord rising up within the group that was causing problems.  The Lord led me to write a letter to them in which I outlined the need and principle of unity, and asked that any who could not, or would not be willing to make a firm decision to get along and be at peace, to seriously consider leaving the group—just under half left and started another prayer meeting at a different time.  At first, I thought that this would be a bad idea as there would be rivalry, but it turned out to be God’s way of solving the problem because peace came into each group and both meetings were filled with God’s Presence and were experiencing great fruit.  I learned much through this experience. God pointed out to me that the nature of one group was quieter having a seer type gifting, while the other group was louder, more war like, moving in the prophetic and in travail.  Together they were clashing but separated there was unity in each group, causing each to become very efficient. Both groups then began to get along much better after the separation. God has creative ways to solve every problem when we are following Him.

At the time God reminded me that He ordained that there be twelve tribes of Israel. These tribes were very different from each other, having different giftings and temperaments.  God gave them each their own territory with boundaries in which to occupy and serve Him.  However, God’s desire and will was that all the tribes would choose to honor each other, the other’s God given gift, and choose to work together in a HOLY UNION in obedience to Him and for the cause of the Kingdom! The anointing oil flows down from the Head of our High Priest that is Jesus Christ, covering the UNITED BODY of ALL His tribes, and in that fragrance of honor and unity GOD COMMANDS THE BLESSING, releasing the promises, His Life and His great power and authority!

As God gets ready to move to fulfill His promises, push back the darkness and release a great move of the Holy Spirit, He is now highlighting the need of His praying army to truly humble themselves before Him, turn from their wicked ways and yes—this also means loose talk that defiles, providing the enemy with ammunition—then, HE WILL HEAL OUR LANDS!  God is about to move to do a great work with those whose hearts are pure, through whom He can produce great results. The people of God must move now from worldly thinking, worldly vocabulary and conversation, to holiness in word and deed! When the conditions are right, when there is submission, accountability, humility and purity in intercession—power is released from the Throne!  Repentance precedes revival!

I believe God is saying that the waiting is over! Heaven is mobilizing! I am hearing the Trumpet sounding the cry, BREAK CAMP!  The army of God is now rising up and beginning to move out into their destiny and divine call to fulfill Holy and righteous mandates released by God for this season.  I hear the sound of marching in the tree tops, sounds of a people mobilizing in Power, with the joy of the Lord as their strength, with the war cry of a great Lion’s roar in their mouths—a people prepared to meet their destiny!

“GOD IS NOT A MAN, THAT HE SHOULD LIE, NOR A SON OF MAN, THAT HE SHOULD REPENT. HAS HE SAID, AND WILL HE NOT DO? OR HAS HE SPOKEN, AND WILL HE NOT MAKE IT GOOD? BEHOLD, I HAVE RECEIVED A COMMAND TO BLESS; HE HAS BLESSED, AND I CANNOT REVERSE IT. “HE HAS NOT OBSERVED INIQUITY IN JACOB, NOR HAS HE SEEN WICKEDNESS IN ISRAEL. THE LORD HIS GOD IS WITH HIM, AND THE SHOUT OF A KING IS AMONG THEM. GOD BRINGS THEM OUT OF EGYPT; HE HAS STRENGTH LIKE A WILD OX. “FOR THERE IS NO SORCERY AGAINST JACOB, NOR ANY DIVINATION AGAINST ISRAEL. IT NOW MUST BE SAID OF JACOB AND OF ISRAEL, ‘OH, WHAT GOD HAS DONE!’ LOOK, A PEOPLE RISES LIKE A LIONESS, AND LIFTS ITSELF UP LIKE A LION; IT SHALL NOT LIE DOWN UNTIL IT DEVOURS THE PREY…” NUMBERS 23:19-24

THE WINE IS READY AND KEYS TO UNLOCK YOUR DESTINY!

WOW! What an opportune time to be alive on planet Earth and living in the Kingdom of God!  God is on the move! He has shifted the world into a new dispensation of time that is alive with potential and pregnant with possibilities as Heaven moves to break in with the supernatural and the miraculous!  God is moving to release on planet Earth a new and fresh apprehension of His Goodness and Glory in the Face of Jesus Christ.  With 5777 we have shifted into a new era in which God is doing a NEW THING in New ways, where His intentions are ultimately focused on reaping a great Harvest of precious souls and bringing them into the family of God.

It is important to be aligned with the mind of Christ that we may comprehend the ‘NEW dynamic of this hour and His strategic purposes for this dispensation of time.  Throne union with Him is His desire and goal, that we may legislate the Heavens and rule with Him in His holy endeavors. Critical thinking united with revelation will unlock the marvels prepared for this hour.  The fire will be ignited and the provisions released—prepared and made ready specifically for this season.  To stay in sync with the Lord, we must know how to process this time and understand what He intends to accomplish.

Recently I had a dream of driving a car, I turned on to a very familiar street not knowing that it had been changed to a one-way street, and I was heading into the flow of on-going traffic.  The Lord revealed that this was a new day! The day of going our own way, traveling old familiar paths had ended. The present shift in times was transforming old roadways where we flow together on the Highway of the Lord in the direction of the union in His Will. Together on this Higher-way, we become A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH THROUGH OUR AGREEMENT AND UNION WITH HIM! As we let go of the familiar and launch out in faith we become unstoppable on a one-way ticket where we will not, and cannot return to the old place we were before.

This is an apostolic season of being sent out; of His sons coming to the fullness of maturity, and of His Harvest—a season of being centered in His Will, positioned to take the land assigned to us!  God is preparing a new wineskin to meet the challenges of this season; one prepared with a new mind-set to think outside the old religious box of irrelevant traditions that served His purposes in the past seasons.  An apostolic mantle is being activated to shift and shake up the ways we have done church.

Recently I heard the Lord say clearly, “THE NEW WINE IS READY! I NEED A NEW WINESKIN!” God has also been emphasizing His desire to bring Heaven to Earth!  From the start of this year, Heaven to Earth, is a phrase I keep running into in some form, everywhere I turn! Being rightly positioned for harvest and Cities of Refuge are two issues I feel God is now emphasizing for the fulfillment of His purposes in this hour.  Having understanding of the Keys that unlock your Destiny is vital in this incredible season ahead!

Being Rightly Positioned

Being centered in Christ and positioned in the land of your inheritance unlocks our destiny! Circumstances may seem to be holding you back, or life situations and finances but obedience to take your place in your appointed sphere, unlocks your destiny and positions you for Favor—favor that opens the necessary doors for you to accomplish your assignment.  Recently the Lord told me to read a book I had read over fifteen years ago— Commitment to Conquer by Bob Beckett. As I read, the Holy Spirit was with me on every page of the book! I have read this book many times and highly recommend it if you feel called to a city. However, it reveals startling and powerful revelations in regard to the significance and importance of being positioned in the right place at the right time! As the title states, the book’s emphasis is on COMMITMENT as the first step.  Bob states, “The first step in taking spiritual possession of a territory is making a commitment to that place,” and, “Only when we accept the responsibility and accountability can we SEE the vision!  He says, “A person may know WHAT God’s call is but never fully realize that potential until he knows WHERE the call is to!”

These are a few points I gleaned on the immediate results of making a territorial commitment:

  • We will be INCREASED – enlarged in abundance, in prosperity, in authority, in multiplication
  • Choosing to set yourself firmly in the place where God has called you, unlocks a spiritual principle that results in increase—finances are released and effectiveness. The principle works!
  • When this level of commitment is made, he says, “I have seen the Lord stop the diminishing process and activate the increasing process.” Then you will have everything needed to accomplish what He has called you to do!
  • Making a commitment to a community makes a vital difference and impact in the unseen realm!
  • Our vision for the community, LIKE A DIAMOND will then begin to sparkle with new facets we had not seen before

Cities of Refuge – Called to a City.

God is moving now to establish Cities of His Presence that are places of Refuge from the storms—true Sanctuary Cities guarded by the Presence of God and His Heavenly Hosts.  This is a key strategy in His plan for the hour. How Does the Government of Heaven Invade Earth? In the Old Testament, Heaven first invaded Earth through a man—Abraham, then a people, a City and then the Nation—all of Israel saw the Glory!  In the New Testament Heaven invaded Earth with Christ then at Pentecost—the Glory fell on 120 praying saints who were prepared and made ready for the Promise of the Father—a City and nation were revolutionized!  GOD IS LOOKING NOW, ON A WIDE SCALE, TO ONCE AGAIN INVADE CITIES AND NATIONS WITH HIS GLORY!

The Lord’s strategic plan for Dominion embodies both the micro and the macro—from the individual soul to His Global and national intentions!  God is in the business of nation building through individuals—reaching a nation begins with His Glory overtaking, people, Cities and communities. The Lord is looking for those who will be bold enough now to ASK HIM FOR CITIES AND NATIONS—not just in the emotional fervor of the moment, but with intentionality and willingness to pay the cost. He is seeking co-laborers who will reveal His heart to the lost!

Only ask, and I WILL give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession.” Psalm 2:8 NLT

The enemy has made great gains over the last eight years, but has also lost much ground in 2017. He is enraged and fighting to regain ground and increase his plans for chaos on the Earth.  However, God has provided a window in this opportune time for His people to move in Light & Fire to establish safe spaces before this window closes.

I do believe God has given us time before Jesus returns to establish His Cities of refuge and Glory, and lay the groundwork for much that He plans to do in Cities and Nations.  The world seems to be shaking in turmoil right now as years of deeply rooted iniquity in demonic structures and things hidden in dark places are being shaken, stirred up and exposed.  Spiritual earthquakes are demolishing demonic mind-sets and unproductive ways that have worked to keep lies and deception hidden—God is draining the swamp! God is exposing the enemy in order to bring forth the New and Fresh, to re-align nations, establish new foundations and forge new strategic partnerships. Many world Leaders will suddenly begin to embrace new possibilities that produce Life and good fruit, as He moves the heart of leaders like a river.

God will turn much that the enemy is attempting to do right now on the world scene, for good, as His people align with Him and intercede accordingly.  The best days of the Church ae upon us—a time to embrace our Divine Destiny.  God is Good and He is Faithful! We are at the beginning of the Season we have been waiting for!  Lets wake up and not blow this! This is the hour of the fulfillment of His promises of Glory and Light! Even though darkness will cover the earth in time, RIGHT NOW, the people of God are beginning to ‘ARISE & SHINE’ for our light HAS COME!

Satan is also working at establishing his cities and nations, lead by his anti-Christ leaders who are positioned to produce panic and fear.  However, HE MUST submit to God’s timing and cannot go beyond his boundaries however dark things may seem.  Tribulation will come! Jesus prophesied many times that everything written ‘must be fulfilled.”  However, I do sense that this is not that time—the enemy is overplaying his hand and is about to be shot down!

In this hour and season ahead, God is saying to His people, “…rule in the midst of your enemies” (Psalm 110).  The LORD has provided us with powerful tools to accomplish our assignment and LEGISLATE THE HEAVENSthe ability to call forth what is not as though it were, the power of the Blood, the power of His Name, the power of His Word, the power of Decree, the power of the Holy Spirit to bring it to pass, and Angel Armies assigned to God’s kingdom purposes!  He has given us everything needed to rule and reign!

OF THE INCREASE OF HIS GOVERNMENT AND PEACE THERE SHALL BE NO END,  upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. THE ZEAL OF THE LORD OF HOSTS WILL PERFORM THIS.”  Isaiah 9:6 -7
