Prophetic Insight

Who is Sufficient for These Things?

I was recently awakened in the middle of the night with a burning question in my heart: What would the apostle Paul and the disciples do in the situations that believers are now faced with in Canada, the United States and other parts of the world? How would they live, walk, and comport themselves? In my mind, I was seeing these apostles as bigger than life and present in our world. I sought God for the answers to these questions but received none.

The following morning, as I was reading a devotional, God provided the answer. The devotional talked about the early Christians and the situations they were facing; I saw that they were similar to the things we are now beginning to encounter in Canada. The disciples were being restricted in what they could speak about or teach; they were being disparaged by some of the religious leaders who feared man rather than God. There was a rising level of persecution against Christianity and Christians were being threatened daily.

Awakening versus Awokening!

The present ‘woke culture being pushed on humanity, is a demonic crafting of a new reality founded on satanic antichrist principles. Becoming ‘woke,’ is the awokening of the masses to the demonic principles of division, immorality and hedonistic lifestyles being espoused through ‘equity.’ The road to Truth leads us not to equity or even equality but rather to crucifixion—to the Cross, to a life laid down in full surrender and obedience to God; to the One who said, “I am Way, the Truth and the Life.”

I do realise that it is somewhat different to be born into a situation of persecution as the disciples were, than it is to watch the freedom that you have known all your life begin to be taken from you incrementally and systematically…so again my thought was what would the saints do?

What did the saints do? The disciples continued to press forward and do exactly what they were called to do! They prayed! They asked God for courage and boldness to speak. They asked God to strengthen them in the situations that they faced.  As they were obedient, there was a great awakening to the knowledge of Truth!  Acts 4 reveals the persecution they were experiencing, however, verse 33 says that:

Great grace was upon them all.” 

Great grace! The answer leaped off the page into my spirit and I saw it! The answer was God’s Grace!  I suddenly saw that Grace brings whatever is needed! Grace is favor, power and all the Goodness of God wrapped into one. The disciples asked God to increase the power and He turned up the Grace and gave them great Grace. At one point when Paul complained to God about the attacks on his life, God said to him:

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

What is grace? Grace is the Divine substance that releases the ability to walk supernaturally through any situation without fear. Grace undergirds and empowers the believer in Christ; the one who lives and moves and has his being in Christ, thereby tapping into His life substance.

The word grace in the Greek is charis and means, graciousness, especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life, benefit, favour, gift, joy liberality, pleasure. In Hebrew, grace is the word chên and means graciousness, kindness, favor, precious, well-favoured.

We can therefore expect that when God’s graciousness is upon us, His Divine influence works on our hearts, and becomes reflected in our lives. We then experience His benefits, His favour, His joy, His liberality, and pleasure over us as He works all things for our good.

Jesus is God! His life force is Spiritual substance that is supernatural, creative, imbued with wisdom, insight and understanding. Grace allows us to tap into the treasures of Christ, a place where there is no fear, and where every possibility exists.  In Grace, the substance of God’s life force moves in to take charge of any situation we may encounter. As Believers in Christ, we draw from Him and receive His Grace—His unmerited favor. Grace is embedded with potential to transform our circumstances and our demeanour from weakness and fear to power and strength.

Grace is Power!

Grace brings an atmospheric change, adjusts our perspective, and produces an uncanny sense that all is well. It impregnates the current issue with His Divine possibilities. Hope arises because God is in the mix. Grace therefore brings great possibility!

How then should we live? We live and walk in the present ever-changing world by trusting God to provide the Grace needed for any situation we may face. In perilous situations, we pray for great grace knowing that God’s grace is sufficient for all things.

When Paul and Silas were imprisoned and began to sing praises to God, they stepped into His life force, and grace was released. Their chains snapped and the prison doors were opened. Grace moved Peter to speak without fear, having just been released from prison for that very thing. When Peter and John told the others about the threats they received, they prayed and reminded God of Psalms 2:2 regarding threats to His Anointed and His elect ones.

“Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken…”  Acts 4:29-31

Paul asked the sublime question, “Who is sufficient for these things? The answer is no one! God’s answer is, “My grace is sufficient for you.” The veil was rent at the Cross and Grace—the life force of Christ, was released on humanity. The Savior came to release His life that was full of Grace and Truth.

The door into the Kingdom was opened on Pentecost as Grace ushered in those who believed. It was poured on the house of Cornelius, welcoming the Gentiles into the family of God. The disciples prayed for doors of opportunity to be opened for them to share the Truth, and the Lord answered them.

“For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” 1Corinthians 16:9

Grace allows us to walk supernaturally through a natural and complex world. Grace moves obstacles out of the way and provides the peace to handle the difficulties of life. Grace is a Gift! Faith is the substance, the buying power, that purchases grace, favor, and Divine possibilities.

The Holy Spirit is the final arbiter of Grace. He said that it was not by might or power, nothing is possible but for His Spirit. God’s Grace releases the Holy Spirit in power.  The angel that spoke to Zerubbabel told him that the mountain before him would become a plain; that when he shouted: “…grace, grace to it!”   he would complete the work on the House of God in the headstone (Zech. 4:7).

 The Angel asked Zerubbabel, “What do you see? Zerubbabel’s answer was oil. Grace brings the oil, the anointing that breaks the yolk, that breaks open prison doors, that transforms situations. How did Paul and apostles respond? They looked to God to make the way and to open the doors as only God can. Great grace was upon them all!

Let Grace open the doors of favor needed for you. Shout grace, grace to every obstacle in the path of the promise. In times of uncertainty, Grace will show you what to do! You will stand resolute in the strength, courage, and energy of God, in the grace of God. You will shine as you rest in Him! In rest and with God’s grace you can walk through anything. Rest is knowing that He is positioned at your side always, regardless of circumstance. In rest His fulness is released in you, and His will and His life is poured out through you. In rest there can be no fear.

God told us to: Be still and know that I am God! Cease striving and I will be God in your life! You have been called in a time of disfavor to rise in great Grace and favour, as pillars upholding the foundations of Truth. You are called to shine, reflecting the glory of God in times of uncertainty and change.

You will exude the Shalom peace of God when there is fear and hopelessness around you. You are the princes and towers of strength God is positioning in the earth. God will make you noticeable by His favor. People will see and take note. They will hear, causing them to grapple with truth and deception. You will exude God and minister His life force with His words and His healing touch. It is possible that God has not yet answered our prayers, because He is waiting to see a rise in His people before He removes the restrictions. He is searching for the new breed who have the guts to believe Him.

Don’t judge what other people and other churches are doing, as some are called to stay, and some are cold to go. Some are called to fight, and some are called to clean the fish, not everyone is called to the front lines. Receive His Life and find His Grace to find what you need to do! Draw near to Throne of Grace to find grace to help in times of need, (Hebrews 4:16). We are meant to be imbued with His Grace that we may become stewards of His Grace.

I started this word with the question of how the disciples would live in these present times. The answer is that in the Grace of God, they kept moving forward in obedience to the One who would sustain them, who would open the doors of favor to them and who would preserve them.

Who is sufficient for these things?  None but Christ. Our sufficiency is from Him!

 

 

LATEST RELEASE!

Living From the Throne, From Glory & From Rest!

 

The Lord has said in His Word that we are to come boldly before His Throne! The blood of Jesus gives us full access. Nevertheless, this does not allow us to come in arrogance. We come dressed in the mantle of humility in the Royal robes of Salvation and Righteousness. Arrogance and religion have no place at the Throne. Pride does not exist in God, cannot exist in heaven, or at the Throne. God wants His Body to get clean, get dressed, and get ready to dwell in Glory, to be granted full access to the Throne room. When Joseph was summoned to go before Pharoah, he washed and put clean garments on. After the angels removed the filthy garments from Joshua the high priest, in Zechariah 3, they put clean clothes on him and a clean turban on his head. Joshua was then given charge of God’s courts and access to the Throne.

The Throne is the place of authority from where we rule and reign in Christ. It is therefore important that we learn to live from the Throne zone, and from the heart of God. With God’s heart, mind, and authority, we can rule in all situations. We become God’s Kingdom representatives. It is time to get rid of the victim mentality and begin to identify with Christ as a ruler, in His power, authority and mandate. This is our inheritance. It is important to God that we learn to occupy this ascended place!

I believe the re-release of the outpouring at Pentecost, or the 2nd Pentecost some are expecting, does not take place at Pentecost, it will come in the time of the Feast of Tabernacles—the last Feast yet to be fulfilled. What began at Pentecost is completed at Tabernacles! However, until then, God is moving toward that day in the power of the Holy Spirit, Who is taking us from Glory to greater experiences and levels of Glory, until we are overflowing with the Spirit in fulness! The Lord wants a removal of the walls and a bigger place within us from where He will break out in Glory.

“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 3:18

As we behold God in His Glory, we are being transformed into His image in the same Glory! When we are pressed in life it produces within us something that has tremendous value to God! God’s intention is to move us progressively and intentionally through the pressing of the wilderness, experience to becoming a lush land that is watered with the rains of heaven. We then become the city from where the River flows out to the nations. You are that city! A ruler city constructed in the image of God!

One of the keys to becoming this city is learning to live in the rest of God. We are now approaching another Shmita year beginning on Rosh Hashanah 5782, that falls on September 7th on the Gregorian calendar. The Shmita is a sabbath year that represents a year of Rest. Every seventh year God ordained a time of rest for the land, forgiveness of debts and the release of slaves. During this time Israel was not allowed to work the land. The people therefore had to have the faith to know that God would provide for them supernaturally and trust Him for their provision.

Living in rest is a walk of faith! God said that if  Israel obeyed His commands, they would be a blessed nation—a lender and not a borrower. We want to be a people that are able to bless others, not those who have to borrow and live in debt—a people who live in the blessings of God. The Shmita was therefore a supernatural year, where God was in full control of the destiny of Hs people and of the land.

We are now heading into an appointed, very supernatural Shmita year of Divine miracles. We are presently being prepared for an extraordinary year of rest and release, where we cease from our labors and from striving, and allow God to rise to His place of Lordship in our lives. God is coming to take the wheel to direct the course of the ship. We are about to learn how to become Glory dwellers, to live in His divine Glory. God took me to 1 Kings 5:2-4 to reveal the principle of great productivity in times of rest.

And Solomon sent word to Hiram, “You know that David my father could not build a house for the name of the LORD his God because of the warfare with which his enemies surrounded him, until the LORD put them under the soles of his feet.  But now the LORD my God has given me rest on every side. There is neither adversary nor misfortune.”  1 Kings 5:2-4

There are key principles to glean from in this passage. We know that Solomon built a magnificent house for the Glory of God. Building begins when the enemy is subdued and under the soles of our feet.  We must seek the Lord for deliverance over our enemies and put our feet on their necks, as I believe God is saying that it is time to build the House of God for the harvest and for the indwelling of His manifest Presence—a House designed, built and constructed by Him according to His blueprint.

“THIS IS A WAR!”

As we have entered a season of war, in the decade ahead the Body of Christ will have to learn and understand the dichotomy of warring from a place of rest, as we build God’s House and gather in the harvest. We war from a position of rest in Him. This will become important in the days ahead, as so often we strive to do things in our own strength and with our own ideas and we produce limited fruit, we become burnt out and open ourselves to attack.  When we enter His rest, God comes along and does it in an instant and there is tremendous, bountiful fruit and victory. The Conqueror is going forward and those riding with Him follow! Jesus is a man of war, and we are in a state of war!  God took me to Luke 11 to highlight this truth to me and release understanding of the present times. Jesus said:

“Satan’s belongings are undisturbed as he stands guard over his fortress Kingdom strong and fully armed with an Arsenal of many weapons. But when one that is stronger than he comes to attack and overpower him the stronger one will empty the Arsenal in which he trusted. The Conqueror will ransack his kingdom and distribute all the spoils of victory. THIS IS A WAR, and whoever is not on my side is against me, and whoever does not gather the spoils with me will be forever scattered.” Luke 11: 21-23: TPT (emphasis mine)

God highlighted the words to me, …WHOEVER IS NOT ON MY SIDE! I saw this as a serious warning to Christians who are presently taking sides against God’s present work in the Earth—some who are even creating their own religious rules to cancel many servants of God who do not adhere to them. This is simply mimicking the spirit of the world, serving to bring the present cancel culture dynamic into the Church.  Jesus is warning and saying:

“Look to Me and  move quickly to find yourself on My side. Leaders be followers of Me, Gather with Me, build what I am building! I have need of you now!

When Jesus was about to ride into Jerusalem He called for the colt. He told His disciples to untie the colt and tell the owner, “The Lord has need of it.” Jesus is about to untie you from the restraints holding back the fullness of your destiny in Him, and will ride in on you, into the sphere assigned to you. Jesus has need of you! Are you ready to ride?

God is looking to release great Glory on a people whose time has come! In the early 1990’s I had a dream where I saw myself dressed as a glorious Bride in white. The train of the gown stretched for miles. Within the train there were flowers and gardens of every kind representing the beauty of diversity in the Bride of Christ.

I was then taken to have my hair styled; my hair was long and very curly.  My hairdresser—a prominent leader in the renewal, used a cream straightener, to very patiently straighten out the curls of my hair until it was dead straight. He then proceeded to cut my hair quite short to around the middle of my neck…and the dream ended. I did not understand this dream because I had had such a struggle with unruly curls for so many years and had recently made peace with God about it. I also knew that a woman’s hair, according to the scriptures represented Glory. I sought the Lord for years for the interpretation but did not receive any.

A Short Work to The Glory!

Many years later I was at a conference where the speaker was the hairdresser. The Lord suddenly whispered the interpretation to me. Regarding the straightening, He said, “This is my chosen vessel to prepare my Bride, to straighten out the crooked places of religion.”  He then said, regarding the Bride’s hair being cut short, “It will be a short work to the Glory!” I understood this statement to be a pun on time…that the work on the bringing the Bride to Glory, would be cut short and accomplished in accelerated time!

At that time, I was surprised because I thought that we were in the Glory, as I had never witnessed or experienced the power of God as seen during the decade of the renewal.  It seems that God has a much greater Glory yet to come! My hair was made dead straight; to me the term ‘dead straight’ was significant of flatlining.  During our lives, through the highs and the lows, God works to bring you to the flatline, that is the way of the cross and the path to Glory. God confirmed this dream to me in Isaiah 40 where He says:

 “Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth; The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” Isaiah 40:4-5

This passage represents the work of God to bring His people to Glory. The crooked places made straight is the removal of religion and error hindering the release of Glory. There are places and people now being prepared for God’s Glory to land. These are prepared Landing cities. They are a prepared ground! They are places and people that are jealous for the Presence and faithful to guard the Presence. They are not intimidated by dissenting voices or the fear of man, rather they fear God. They have become secured places that are not moved my man, by circumstances, or by the elements.

A Glory zone is not of this earth spiritually, it occupies the heavenly realms. It is guarded and protected by God, and honored and exalted by God. They are trustworthy faithful places where a foundation has been laid for God’s Glory—a place that has learned how to live in the fire and Glory of His Presence.

The scriptures declare that the Glory of God will fill the earth as the waters covers the sea. This will begin to happen first through HIS people! He is coming in Glory to a people, before He returns to Rule in Glory. Ho and when will this happen? The Lord reminded me of this scripture.

“For this is what the LORD says: You will see neither wind nor rain, yet this valley will be filled with water…” 2 Kings3:17

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!

Present Spiritual Realities!

Humility of heart, has been the theme of a few recent words I have given, the most recent titled, For a Mere Moment on January 14th, based on 2 Chronicles 7:14. The title is based on God’s word to Jerusalem in Isaiah 54. God has continued to bring this word to my attention, as I believe it also holds answers for the present time we are living in:

“For a mere moment I have forsaken you, but with great mercies I will gather you. With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,” Says the LORD, your Redeemer. “For this is like the waters of Noah to Me; For as I have sworn That the waters of Noah would no longer cover the earth, so have I sworn that I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you. For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, But My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,” Says the LORD, who has mercy on you.” Isaiah 54:5-10

Now what does a mere moment in time mean to God, this I don’t know. A moment could mean anything in God\s timing. I believe God has determined the time according to His plan, but also, to our response to truly humble ourselves—to stop the contentiousness, the mean words, the anger directed at the other side and against the family of God. It is important that we stop criticizing each other, face the condition of our own hearts, and allow God to reveal the truth of its condition. This would be a good time to put a seal on our lips and take time to sit at His feet. Absolutely nothing is impossible to God to turn the tide of events, when He chooses—nothing is outside of His purview when His people truly humble themselves.

We are living at the most critical hour of this century and the condition of our hearts is crucial to God’s plan for thwarting the enemy’s agenda. God is far more concerned with the state of our hearts than giving us victory! At present, we now have a global shadow government waging a silent war for dominion of the world. This may sound too fantastic to some, who will put it down to exaggerations or conspiracy theories. Nevertheless, there are spiritual realities to events presently taking place, that many do not understand have been prophesied in the Bible. Ephesians 2:2 is not a conspiracy theory—it is the word of God informing us that Satan is, “… the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience…”

Ephesians 6:12 is also not a conspiracy theory: “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.”

Satan’s agenda to invade nations, governments, and all spheres of society, to steal kill and destroy, is not a conspiracy theory. Why are so many surprised, stupefied, in disbelief and resistant to the truth when he does? He is presently waging a war on Christianity and God’s people; a war that is gaining ground and growing in momentum. The signs are all there and the evidence is clear for any who genuinely want to see. When Winston Churchill first warned England and the nations of Hitler, very few would listen to him. When the Jewish people of Germany and Europe were told of the atrocities taking place to their people, many choose not to believe it! Some said things such as: we will be fine or, this will pass. Then it was too late!

We have become so divided by opinions, that we have fallen into the trap of becoming distracted with fighting each other, while the enemy moves to build and establish demonic strongholds that could radically affect us and the generations to come. If we are to win this war, Christians need to stop talking about being an army and become the army of God. We have been given the responsibility and the authority to guard the gates of the House of God and our nations. We are in  a position like Israel in 1947, before they got the revelation that they needed to unify and become an army in order to win the war and survive being annihilated. They understood experientially that everyone needed to enlist—men, women and even children.

We never have to fear the enemy or anything when we are living inside of the will of God; nevertheless, if we are living outside of the will of God, we should fear! God created fear to keep people from things that would harm and hurt them. Fear can sometimes be a good thing, especially if it causes us to be obedient and draws us to God. Hebrew 10:30-31 says that God will judge His people, and that it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God! God will sometimes use fearful situations to awaken and mobilize Christians and move them out from a place of complacency. This is not Kumbaya time—we are in a season of war! The enemy is fighting to win and is making great inroads. Most Christians aren’t fighting at all, except with each other. God has given us weapons to fight that are not carnal but are mighty in God to pull down strongholds (2Cor. 10:4).

The Body of Christ is looking for leaders to now chart the course ahead, but more than anything we need leaders to become united. When it was time to cross over to possess the promised land, the leaders and the army crossed over before the people, leading the way! We need leaders to set an example by coming together in unity to release one sound. God says in His Word that we know only in part, therefore, no single person has the full picture! God designed it this way to press the issue of unity. As each bring their part to the table, and are willing to listen to each other, the Body will begin to receive a clearer picture and understanding of how God is leading us forward as a corporate family. There must be a coming together for the sake of the House of God, to bring order and to build a wall of resistance against the encroaching darkness. God is watching and waiting for us to get it together and get our hearts right as He works to bring forth His will.

Recognizing Demonic Tactics at Work

Discernment will be a key issue in the days ahead, and the ability to clearly recognize strategies the enemy employs to deceive people. One such strategy is when the Mainstream Media and colluding parties simultaneously push a talking point ferociously and aggressively, while irrationally suppressing any information that says otherwise—you can know this is straight up propaganda. Another well-understood tactic of demonic cohorts is the targeting of a leader, a messenger, or a movement with accusation, with the intent to discredit and destroy them. You will recognize and understand the one who is a threat to their agenda, by the one they are targeting in collusion with politicians, the liberal media, and social media giants. They will falsely accuse their opponents of the very malevolent principles they stand for, thereby deflecting attention away from themselves to deceive others. For example, those that stand against liberty and freedom of speech, will accuse their opponent of these very things. The fascist accuses their opponent of fascism. The Marxist will accuse others of being against democracy, while working underhandedly to erode Democratic norms and freedoms. This is a model, now adhered to by many prominent liberal leaders based on the book, Rules for Radicals; a book dedicated to Lucifer—the Accuser of the brethren and the father of lies. The dedication reads: “…to the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer.”

The problem frequently encountered, is that the mind of the average non-Christian or spiritually unaware person—believer or otherwise, cannot conceive of this level of deception, and the broad scope of the machinations at work with colluding parties to control people, nations, and world events. People choose not to believe, and do not want to believe, since, to believe means they will be accountable to the truth and may have to make changes to their lives. Believers, having a lack of understanding of spiritual realities—many of the Word and the knowledge of God, are made susceptible to be easily swept away in compromising trendy movements, until confronted with the truth.

We are truly living in Orwellian times. Many policies that are being rolled out in Canada and now in America under the new administration, are sourced from the demonic kingdom Alinsky referred to. Pronouns such as mother, father, sister and brother are now banned in the house of representatives in the U.S. and prayers are being offered to a variety of gods such as Brahma. Policies are now being put in place, legislating gross evil to take captive present and future generations. Parents are losing their rights over their children to the government, as the guardians and chief influence in their children’s lives. A very aggressive LGBTQ agenda is gaining in strength and scope in both nations, while millions of abortions take place in America, and Canada each year.

On Biden’s first day in office, he enacted legislation allowing transgender students to use girl’s washrooms and showers; transgenders to be allowed in the military, and transgender females to compete on women’s teams, that will destroy women’s sports. Children as young as eight will be given the right to choose their gender, with parent’s rights to do anything about it removed. In Canada, if Bill C-6 is passed, it could mean jail time for parents who try to influence their children’s choice to change their gender. Schools are now brainwashing children with demonic ideology, as parents lose their rights and ability to do anything about it. Jesus warned of grave consequences for the one who would harm children or cause them to sin:

“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:6

The Valley of Decision?

It is time for the Church to wake up as we each have a part to play and a voice to be heard. This is no time to live in compromise. It is only a matter of time before God will move in judgment against such evil…the clock is ticking. We may be in the eleventh hour. What will you choose? Whom will you serve?

“Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.” But the people said nothing.” 1Kings 18:21

The world has now found itself caught in the Valley of Decision, with everyone now scrambling to take sides. This is happening because God’s hand is drawing the line and defining the sides by those who fill follow His will and His Word, and those who will not. Nations are also forming alliances together and against others, as rulers take counsel against God and His anointed. Nations would be wise to find themselves on the right side of God as the day will come when it is too late. It would be wise, “…to kiss the Son lest He become angry!” (Ps. 2). God is watching and He is waiting patiently as the sides become clearly defined as to who is standing with Him and who isn’t.

“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.” Acts 17:30-31.

God takes it very seriously when rulers take council against His anointed chosen people or against those He has chosen to lead. The people who sided with the 250 leaders led by Korah, found this out very quickly when they came against Moses—the earth opened, and swallowed them. God has made it clear for His people, His way for discerning between the imposter and the genuine. It is in the evidence of a life that is bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God! Jesus said, “…by their fruits you will know them.” It is not by their words, as words are cheap and can mean nothing; it is not even by their actions, as actions can be an act that is put on! God has given us a foolproof method for recognizing the genuine, and the authentic—we will know them by a life, that consistently produces good fruit based on the foundation of Biblical precepts and the character of Christthe one who can consistently declare that Jesus Christ is Lord of all.

When they were given the choice, most of the Israelites chose rightly and stood with Moses—God’s ordained leader. Rahab—a Gentile, also made the right choice and stood with Israel, when she heard that God was with them. When the walls of Jericho fell, she was given favor with God, and later became the wife of Boaz, the grandfather of King David. It is wisdom to be found on God’s side, the side of His people, and the man or woman He chooses.

When choosing a Governmental leader, the principles of the Bible should always be our guide in choosing the right one—we are to look to the one who enacts legislation based on Godly principles that promote life, liberty, and freedom. Our choice must be based on policies and rise above carnal emotions. We are also to look to, and choose the one who is aligned with Israel, as God blesses the nation that supports Israel and resists the one that doesn’t.

“Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The LORD shall hold them in derision.” Psalm 2:1-4

Generals and leaders of many nations have been in counsel over the past weeks, conspiring against God’s anointed. However, I believe that God will not allow the world to be plunged into darkness in this present time, letting it sink it into destruction. He will act! God has heard our cries and he is coming to save! The situation may look desperate, just as it did to Mary and Martha, but the Lord will arrive at the right time. It is important for God’s people to take this time—in the silence of the delay, to be found on the right side of God, and to be securely positioned in Him. However, in the wait we are being tested and must not take on the nature of the accuser, to curse anyone in anger and in frustration. We can and should pray righteous prayers and trust God with the outcome. His promises are sure, and His word stands, as He said to Isaiah: “…The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever” (Isaiah 40:8).

“Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:26-28

Jesus asked the challenging question, of what benefit it would be to a man, to gain the whole world yet lose his own soul (Matt. 16:26). Why would anyone sell their souls for things that rot, that cannot go into eternity? The answer is Mammon! Mammon is the god that is ruling this age! So many have been bought, having sold their souls for promises of money, power, prestige and the pride of life. God warned that if anyone were to boast, their only boast should be is that they know Him (Jer. 9:24).

The Lord’s victory was complete at the Cross! The marshaling of any forces against Him is to their demise. Jesus stands unchallenged as King of kings and Lord of all and is saying to all, “I will be the great defender for the one who stands with me and obeys my Word.”

 

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 Fourth Beast: One World Government

In a previous article that I wrote, titled “Brace Yourselves,” I spoke about an incident God reminded me of, where as a baby, my son got a I boil on his thigh. The moment when the boil had to be squeezed was very painful for him but was absolutely necessary to remove the infection.

I am reminded of this now, as it is becoming very clear as the days pass and more and more information is unearthed, revealing a very deep infection in the world, one that is malevolent and sourced in a satanic agenda. This vile pus has been surfacing for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. The good news and the bad news are that God is getting ready to squeeze out the infection, and His saints must be ready for some distress to come upon the world as the infection breaks open.

This satanic agenda, in a move to set the stage for a one world government, is calling for a Great Reset. Their catch phrase is to Build Back Better, now being peddled by all world leaders. This is not a conspiracy theory, as it is unashamedly being spouted from their own mouths and can easily be researched through the United Nations and the World Economic Forum website videos. The second reason that it is not a conspiracy, is because God has warned in His Word, that these things would one day come to pass.

In the book of Daniel, Nebuchadnezzar was given a dream of a great image comprised of four empires—Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome. Daniel interprets the dream for him and in verse 44, he describes the fourth empire.

“Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.”In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. Daniel 2:40-44

Daniel was also given a vison from God in chapter seven where he saw four great beasts. Most commentaries describe Daniels vision of the four beasts as a second perspective of Nebuchadnezzars’ dream of the four empires. However, I believe that these are two unique visions having distinct and separate interpretations.  Daniel is deeply troubled by what he saw in his vision.

Nebuchadnezzars’ dream ends with Rome and the feet and toes partly clay and partly iron, representing mixture. These toes represent the rule of ten kings, after which Jesus returns to establish his kingdom.  The Roman empire never officially ended but became divided; the western portion fell in the fifth century and the eastern half fell around the fifteenth century. During this thousand-year span, other nations rose to become empires and moved to the forefront. Daniel’s vison reveals the four significant ones. I am about to publish a book titled The Battle between Daniel & Goliath, where I go into detail on these things, however I would like to briefly look at the fourth beast that Daniel’s saw.

‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. “‘But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of all the kingdoms under heaven will be handed over to the holy people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him.’” Daniel 7: 

The ten horns on the head of this fourth beast are the ten kings of the toes of the fourth Empire—a view seen dimly in Nebuchadnezzars dream that is more fully revealed as a rising kingdom in Daniel’s vision.  These ten kings represent a world government, that appears on the earth in the last days: the new world order of a World Empire. However, this kingdom is given over to the holy ones in both Daniel’s and Nebuchadnezzars’ dream:

You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth…

And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.” Daniel 2:34-35, 44

The fourth empire, having its conclusion in the toes of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, resurrected in Daniel’s fourth beast, is now attempting to come to the forefront. It is a world government given power by nations that have acquiesced to the rule of a cabal of unelected elites comprised of world leaders and supported by billionaires and corporate moguls. They are empowered by the demonic and are moving to assume control under the guise of peace, order, and the protection of the world’s resources. Into this environment a ruler will one day arise empowered by satan—a charmer, a smooth walking, smooth talking, man of peace.

When will these things be? We do not know, nor do I think that anyone knows, however my opinion is that we are close, depending on how things play out with this election in the United States. For a one world Government to succeed at this present time, America must go along with their plans, and their move toward globalism and a world government. In the new world order, America’s and its military strength is under subjection to these forces.

We can then understand the feverish attempt and collusion to remove Donald Trump from office, as he stands squarely in their path, hindering the progress of their diabolical plan. The Mainstream Media, Social Media platforms, liberal governments, oligarchs, billionaires, financial institutions and the Federal and World banks, in collusion, have devised various schemes to bring him down, while slandering and defaming him and his family, and suppressing the truth about his many successes.

“For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason, God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:6-10

This should serve as a strong warning for those adamantly choosing to believe lies right now and choosing to agree with evil rather than the principles of the Word of God. Many have speculated as to the one who restrains in this passage; many believe it is the Holy Spirit who leaves with the saints at the time of the rapture. However, God who is omnipresent is not going anywhere.

My belief is that the saints and the government that represents God’s interests, and His will in the Earth is the one that restrains in this passage—the one that holds back the forces of darkness from having their way in the Earth, at any given time in history. At this present moment in history, it is my opinion that the one who now restrains, is Donald J. Trump, those who stand with him in his administration and in the nations, and the saints, having understanding, and spiritual discernment. This could very well be our last stand at holding off the darkness and receiving a merciful reprieve before the new world order becomes established.

Can God intervene, yes, He can, and I am certain He will, as I believe Satan has overplayed his hand at this time. Can God through a great awakening change hearts and minds, and turn the tide? Yes, He can, and I am certain that He will—that it is His chief intention to gather in a massive harvest of souls. I believe that we must be victorious in this present battle for the White House, as this will provide precious time over possibly the next few decades, for specific purposes of God to be accomplished. The world has become like the frog in the frying pan, on a slow boil, until it realizes too late that it is about to be cooked. Now is the time to wake up!

Victory is crucial, as it is my belief that even given a time of victory, and a further reprieve, that doors have been opened over the past few decades, that have produced a move and a momentum toward evil, that will eventually usher in the last days. Pandora’s box has been opened; Pan is the god of panic and pandemics. The genie has been let out of the box giving freedom to the LGBTQ’s powerful agenda and cannot be put back in; they are working hard to now remove all accreditation at Christian Colleges. Well over fifty percent of North America is now in full agreement with the diabolic agenda unfolding in the world! Ruling spirits came in through the gates of legislation of laws inspired by hell, that have been changing times and laws, that now occupy seats of authority in all spheres. By establishing precedence in law, an acceleration of evil is presently gaining momentum, to the point where they are convinced this is their moment to move to establish a world Government.

Nevertheless, But God! With the saints taking their place as the ekklesia of God, interceding and legislating the heavens in the power and authority of God, the darkness most certainly can be pushed back, and will be pushed back! This is vital as the enemy having tasted power, will be regrouping, and strengthening their hand to return with added force, seven times stronger …if we don’t fill the void with Holy Spirit Presence and righteousness, with Christ at the Head leading us. Believers are standing on guard, pressing on and will hold the ground of victory; a Headstone generation of sold out servants of God are arising to occupy till He comes.

“Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. Zechariah 4:7

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

The Reprieve, Donald Trump, & The Coming Election!

 

Before the 2016 elections in the United States, I published a prophetic word on my website that was later published on The Elijah List. I wrote that the Lord had showed me that Donald Trump would win the election and He gave me a single word that would characterize the next decade ahead, and possibly even longer; the word was reprieve, I shared:

“At first, I thought the word reprieve simply meant a break, and was very surprised by the definition, its gravity and its significance! Reprieve means: to delay impending judgment, to relieve temporarily from evil; a respite and, a warrant authorizing the delay!  One of the definitions of the word warrant is: something as considered being the positive assurance of a thing.  I believe a Donald Trump’s presidency is God’s warrant—a positive assurance of a far-reaching reprieve!

As I contemplated the idea of a reprieve, and with an urgency from the Lord to understand His desires, a question began to form in my spirit: “Lord, if in Your mercy we have been granted a reprieve—a window of time, what does that mean to how we must now live and function during this season? What kind of Christian will this day demand? As I have pondered these questions, I believe I have been given some insight into God’s heart for the days ahead.

The election season in the United States has been the trigger that has mobilized the Global Body of Christ, to rise up in boldness with unified focus on an offensive such as has not been seen for a very long time!  The word of the Lord now ringing in my spirit for the season ahead is this: “Do not lose the momentum you have gained! Do not stop! Do not slacken the pace. Stay on the offensive; take the war into the enemy’s camp and breakthrough the enemy’s defenses.” God’s desire is that within the sphere and the boundaries He has given each of us, that we would rise up as a unified army to rule and reign with Him as co-heirs of His Kingdom, and as a force that takes back, holds and occupies the ground that He gives!”

Over the past 4 years, I am not so sure that we have fully understood this! We are presently in the midst of this reprieve—a slot of time to get the job done, very much connected to God’s work through Donald J. Trump in relation to Israel, empowering the Church, the appointment of judges, to abortion, the annihilation of human trafficking and pedophilia that is becoming rampant.  The enemy’s chief aim is to gain power over the world, to annihilate Israel and prevent the theocratic rule of God on Earth from becoming established in Jerusalem, Israel: “The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Israel is the reason the Trump presidency is vital, and why I am certain that He will win again.

We have  been given a reprieve, a window of opportunity that will one day close! I have been saying this with urgency before Donald Trump became president and since! The forces that mobilized the demonic machine before the last election is mobilizing again using the same tools, disinformation, propaganda and violence, and now added to the mix is the plague of Covid-19! The demonic forces have mobilized to prevent everything God has purposed during this time, especially through Donald Trump presidency.

For this reason, it is vital that we mobilize in an even greater way to pray and intercede again for the upcoming elections, as God will move through the intercession of His people, when we mobilize and take our place! It is key for those who call themselves followers of Christ, and those who are leaders to have clean hands and a pure heart, as many prophetic voices are now saying. The Word of God tells us in 1 Peter 4:7 that judgment begins at the House of God and that if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.

 “But when we are judged, it is the Lord’s training so that we will not be condemned along with the world.” 1 Corinthians 11:32  TPT

We are now at a Crossroads of History where we will most certainly be plunged into darkness unless God’s people rise up with the courage to fight! The stakes are high!  The Sons of God must arise…that is you and me! The dragon is seeking to devour the birth and rise of God’s sons and daughters—We will only be victorious if we choose to stand on the principles written in Revelation 12:10-11B

“Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 

  • 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.”

This is the Cross in action. The Cross is the only weapon that defeated these forces and it is the only weapon that will continue to do so! The Cross is the only weapon the enemy understands, and the Blood is the only thing that causes them to recoil in fear!

There must be more than cursory pleading of the Blood in this season. The enemy will only be defeated by a life that lives and is characterized by the Blood—a life that no longer lives for themselves, their good name or their position, but for Christ, where Christ is evident and at the forefront! This is a new warfare we are entering and will be fought and won with wisdom—the wisdom of God!

We have been created to make known to principalities and powers the manifold wisdom of God!  God’s wisdom is represented in the Cross! The Cross is foolishness to the world, but it is the power of God to those who are saved, as it says in 1 Corinthians 1:18!  God is enlisting and assembling the mature into a cohesive power packed force, fused with the life force of the Trinity, and driven by the authority and determination of God.

 “However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.” 1 Corinthians 2:6

I have felt an urgency in my spirit that God is calling for a move of repentance in the Body of Christ; that He desires a cleansing of the heart of His House, from the things we have allowed to take precedence over the mandate and call on our lives, and the simplicity of service to our King. Repentance in humility has preceded every revival in history and will prepare us with the integrity, humility and character necessary to carry the weight of this next move of God. Doors are about to swing wide open for many who have been trained in obedience, persevered through the fire of training and count their lives as nothing in light of His Kingdom purposes.

Paul lived the life of the Cross, he stated that he counted everything in this life as nothing in order to know Christ in His suffering and in the power of His resurrection His statement in Philippians 3:12-14 is one that we must now fully embrace as we press forward in the good fight of faith.

 “…but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore, let us, as many as are mature, have this mind.”

God’s Fireworks are about to begin, let us be sober, alert and ready to stand resolute in the Victory of our Lord!

Listen to the full broadcast of this word:

The Reprieve, Donald Trump & The Coming Elections

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.”

Systems Deployed!

Over the last six months God has continually pressed me with the words launch and rocket. From January of 2019 He revealed that May 2020 would be the Launch, and over Pentecost the Space X rocket was launched as a confirming sign that lift off had taken place—we had ascended in measure from the earthly into the Lord’s sphere powered by His agenda. Recently the Lord revealed to me that July 4th would be a marker day, and that the Month of July—the entrance through a door into a season of release, characterized by strength, authority and power in the Body of Christ. As I worked to wrap up new projects He has given me for release in this season, I was pondering about where we now were in His timings of things, when I heard Him say, “It is time to land this thing,’ this, in reference to what had been launched. I then heard Him say, “Systems are deployed.” I wasn’t clear on exactly what that meant, so I checked the definitions of these words; the word system is defined as:

A set of things working together as parts of an interconnecting network or mechanism: a complex whole. 

Of physics: a set of organs in the body with a common structure or function.

The word deploy means:

To move troops or equipment into position for military action, to bring into effective action.

Both these words are key to what is presently taking place in the spiritual realm. In the preparation that the saints have endured over the past 20-30 years under the hand of the Holy Spirit, has readied them to be deployed in the season of the ‘New Thing.’ God’s creative Life Force is about to be unconstrained, let loose, and discharged through systems, and networks, deployed in strategic settings throughout the Globe.

These systems are comprised of saints who have committed in serve God in obedience, to link arms in authentic unions that will be power packed with the energy force of God, ready to explode in the earth’s atmosphere. We are God’s storehouses He has been storing and filling up with His treasures, prepared to serve the harvest for the time of famine.

A friend of mine, a father in the faith, recently told me that God revealed to him that He was about to establish Glory Pods all over the earth—and that many were being raised up to steward these Glory pods. When He said that, I was reminded of Isaiah 4:5-6:

“Then the LORD will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over everything the glory will be a canopy. It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain.”

I believe these Glory pods are cities and communities of refuge from the present and coming storms on the earth. They are God created systems establish and designed as a network, a metron possessing the dynamic of the supernatural, where food, spiritual weapons of authority and heavenly provision are stored.

The word metron is used in 2 Corinthians 10:13 defined as a sphere or a portion; These are spheres set apart for God and His purposes–His portion. A metron In physics it is a two-dimensional quantum of multi-dimensional space. In this, I believe God is revealing of a measured-out sphere or pod of Glory, where Heaven meets Earth, and is imbued with a tangible dynamic of the supernatural.

These pods are spheres and portals where the angelic ascend and descend with strategies, provision and assistance. They work to accomplish the will of God in partnership with saints who have been intentional about becoming, one cooperative system—one network, functioning in unity, work together to advance the cause of Christ.

In this Hour God is moving with favour and great Grace on those who have made family and unity their emphasis. Those who choose to continue to move in a territorial and independent spirit run the risk of being left behind.

We have been chosen to live in this significant hour of History where the body of Christ must begin to take their place and work together; unfortunately, it has taken persecution against the people of God for us to begin partner together for the Kingdom. Nevertheless, we now have an opportunity and a window of time to move forward intentionally to love and support each other in the gift and the part God has entrusted to each of us to steward.

We have entered a season of war, in the spiritual and in the natural, none of which has taken God by surprise—God has been preparing for this moment. We will not enter this decade as weak fearful saints, but as a fearless apostolic people sent to release the life, power and love of God on planet earth! God reminded me of the scripture we all know so well, but revealed it to me with a fresh anointing for this hour:

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

His emphasis was on the ALL THINGS that will work together for good for the called—even the chaos and the insanity! God has the power to turn it around for good! Moses thought it was the end when he reached the Red Sea, as there was no way out; but God told him to lift up his rod of authority, and when he did God answered with power and opened a way where there was none! God can do it again!

God impressed upon me that we were not to get caught up in pointless debate, that we are convincing no one other than those who already agree with us. It is good to be aware of world events, but the world is in the state that it is because it does not know Jesus and has never experienced His love—that is our job—to spread His love abroad and introduce Him to the harvest.

Transformational change comes by ascending above it all, by lifting up the name of Jesus—the only one who can change people’s minds, the only one that can transform a life, the only one worthy of our attention—the one Who is, Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty!

We have now arrived at an appointed moment in history where God is now deploying an army of apostolic warriors that He has prepared and equipped for such a time as this! Troops and systems are about to be deployed, sent out into the battlefield armed with the Love and the power of God. Our initiatives and prepared Ministries are about to make a landing having impact and weight in their assigned metron.

Let us choose to rise and become a crescendo of apostolic voices raised to glorify and declare the praises of Jesus, our great King, and to spread His love and His fame into all the nations!

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!

STAYING IN THE PLACE OF ASCENDANCY IN 2020

At the start of this year during an awesome night of worship, I was caught up in adoration and praise with hands raised in worship to the Lord. I suddenly saw a vision where I was standing in a small paddle type boat in the middle of the ocean with my arms raised to heaven in worship. The waters were very choppy, but the boat was still! There was lightening, thunder and dark clouds through which the lightening lit up the sky.  I stood and worshipped God in that boat oblivious to the storm raging around me.

When the song ended, I sat down to seek God about what the vision meant. As I was deep in thought pondering this, lines from the song, Raise a Hallelujah, that was then playing, pierced through my thoughts:

“I’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm, Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar.”

At that point, God revealed to me an understanding of the vision—that it was a picture that represented the year ahead! He said that storms would surely come, that it would be an intense and volatile decade. However, for those who take their stand to praise Him regardless of seemingly negative circumstances, who love and serve Him with a whole heart, this year would be one of GREAT VICTORIES, JOY AND ACCELERATED BREAKTHROUGHS. The sons of God are being released in the image of God in vast numbers—sons and daughters that know their God, who have been brought through the fire to implicit faith, to great authority and high praises for their God on their tongues.

This word is not intended to highlight woes and trouble, but rather it is about pointing the way forward for running a race of strength.  I am saying with confidence that the way before will clear as we raise our voices this year, in the year of the voice—to PRAISE OUR GOD FOR HIS GOODNESS!

You who dwell in the gardens with friends in attendance, let me hear your voice!” Songs of Songs 8:13

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). God has given us this tool for our protection and our strength in the decade ahead.  Praise will take you quickly from a place of fear, doubt and hopelessness, into the place of faith where miracles will break out. Praise lifts us into the ascended place of deep thankfulness and joy that opens the gates into His Presence.

It is also important to remember in this season of warfare, that we cannot allow the enemy to steal our praise and use our mouths to complain, judge, gossip and murmur, as we will be robbed of possibly the greatest year of our lives.

Choose to ascend in worship, ascend in praise and rise above the chaos raging in the earth. Resolve in your heart to keep your eyes fixed on His face in faith, regardless of circumstances…Don’t be thrown, HE WILL GET YOU THROUGH TO AN ASCENDED PLACE WHERE THE ENEMY CANNOT TOUCH YOU AND MUST FLEE!  Declare in faith, No, I am more than a conqueror, I will not allow you to steal 2020 from me, the year of promises fulfilled, the year of the Lord’s FAVOR, His acceptable year to pour out abundant blessings, to restore double and to restore and repair our cities (Is. 61.).

Open the ancient Gates with PRAISE and welcome the King of Glory into your circumstances, into your spheres and your cities.  It is time to co-create with God to bring forth His will into the Earth. As you open your mouth to praise you will see things shift quickly as Heaven comes to back you up!

During the first week of January, God confirmed the vision He showed me by giving me songs—two in particular; songs that are continually playing in my mind during certain challenges I have had to face. These songs are worth considering:

You’ll Never Walk Alone

When you walk through the storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark

At the end of a storm
There’s a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone, You’ll never walk alone (Songwriters: Oscar Hammerstein II / Richard Rodgers)

Through the second song the Lord gave me, He was speaking into the fight, and the fortitude of spirit needed to birth the dream and our destinies; the chorus really stirred my heart:

To dream the impossible dream

This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march
Into hell for a heavenly cause (Songwriters: Joe Darion / Mitchell Leigh)

Praise is power!  Praise is a weapon given to us by God—a weapon that we need to utilize.   Use your voice this year not only to decree to word of the Lord, but to also bless the heart of our God. He is our Father, exalt Him to the highest place in your life…He is worthy of all!

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!

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!

Occupy The Revelation!

In my last word, I shared of a new season we were entering in on 11/11/18 where many would be leaving the wilderness warfare behind with the strength and fortitude to possess their promised land. I would like to share some keys God has provided to enter in and hold this position. The first is regarding the New Wineskin. The Lord showed me that the mind of the Body of Christ is the wineskin that must now become New to contain His New Wine. We sometimes associate the New Wineskin with a new church structure or new model, however new models and structures having the capacity to contain God’s New Dynamic, comes first with therenewing of the mind—a supernatural reformation infusing it with the ability to receive and process the New Wine.  Transformation can then take place as a natural progression of the outpouring of New Wine—an outpouring carrying the vision and DNA for the new season, containing fresh revelations of the Majesty of the exalted Christ.

The mind must be renewed and refashioned to withstand the challenges of the new season we have entered, to rightly comprehend and process the purposes of God in it. The mind must be rewired to receive and accept a fresh Spiritual dynamic intended to take us into a new dimension of God’s Glory.

Transformation into the New Wineskin requires that the old has to go, characterized by small mindedness, religious mind-sets bound to control, un-Christlike attitudes devoid of God’s love and compassion, and irrelevant traditions no longer serving the Lord, that are actually working to hinder His purposes in the new work.

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.” Romans 12:2 AMPC

The New Wineskin is a mind that possesses the capacity to change, to be transformed, to perceive and to track with the movements of God, to hold fresh revelation, released in appointed times for appointed times, See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”(Is. 43:19).   We are greatly restricted in the perceiving of God’s New thing by limited thinking. Our vision must be enlarged to see the depth, the height and the width—the fullness of the God’s Majestic picture, in order to comprehend His strategies and partner with Him for bringing it into reality.

Vison for God’s New Thing can only be received by a mind that has been transformed and made pliable through brokenness, humility, love and compassion, and the deep desire to bow to the will of God.  New levels and new dimensions of glory awaits those willing to make necessary changes! There is always more, no one has arrived! We must stretch our vision in this hour to see something more marvellous than we have seen previously.

Occupy The Revelation

The old wineskin cannot occupy new territory. The Lord has given me much revelation—whether for my life or Ministry, that has given me great joy, hope and expectation.  However, with the trials of life, I sometimes find my self returning to an old place of uncertainty, once again seeking Him for direction.  I was in such a place when I heard Him say, “Occupy the revelation!” With this statement came an understanding that we can lose the anointed, supernatural seed and the divine impact to our spirit that comes from heavenly, Holy Spirit revelation. The revelation, rather than moving us on to take spiritual ground, becomes lost because of the mind’s inability or lack of capacity to hold on to it!

Our soul is comprised of mind, will and emotion and is easily impacted by the trials and circumstances of life if not fiercely guarded and protected by faith in Christ—the Divine Shield that protects from all the elements of life. If the mind is not guarded it will easily be infiltrated by fear, doubt and unbelief. These are the fruit of an orphan spirit. The thief will always attempt to steal the revelation and push us off the ground God intends for us to occupy. The orphan spirit breeds:

  • Insecurity that convinces you that you are not worthy and therefore don’t belong.
  • Doubt and unbelief that convinces you that things will never change, and that you are not capable of holding it if they do!
  • Fear of taking the risk to believe and therefore act, and that if you do you will be making a mistake
  • Intimidation and fear of man that tells you that you are not good enough and convinces you to stay hidden

We must present ourselves before the Lord and be willing to receive understanding of old negative mindsets that are hindering our perspective and our ability to hold the revelation—mindsets that are limited, rigid and restricted, incapable and unable to embrace the Glorious destiny God has prepared for the lives of His people. The old wineskin is one of fear, lack and limitation. God’s intention for His people is that we receive the spirit of Sonship that convinces us that we are Sons of God—fully accepted in the beloved, prepared and equipped for the greatest move on earth of all time!

“The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15 NIV

It is imperative that we overcome the darkness and the flesh, and begin to occupy the revelations God has given us, and occupy and live in His Word by camping out on it until we fully believe it and it become woven into our DNA! It’s time to forcefully resist the lies of the enemy, know that we are fully accepted in the Beloved and move out in the power of His might. 

Decide and Declare It

How do we occupy the revelation of His Word for us?  God spoke to my heart and said, “You Decide!”  There were times when I sought the Lord for details of His intentions for my life or the ministry He had given me, then get frustrated when I did not hear or could not understand His direction. I began to understand that as we grow in maturity in the stature of Christ, having our minds continually renewed, we become mothers and fathers of the faith, and God trusts us to make certain decisions. God trusts us to move in sync with Him within His Will—within the parameters of His Word and the revelations and vision he has given us for our lives. He said in His Word:

“You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.” Job 22:28

The Greek word for ways is derek, and it means: a roadcourse of life or mode of action. God has supplied us with authority in word to decide on the course of our lives and the actions we will take based on our agreement with His will. He has given us the power to frame our lives within His Word, just as He framed the worlds with His Word at creation and created the visible with the invisible substance of faith (Heb 11:3). God has left room for us to decide in the paths of our destiny, in order to fulfill the scripture, “Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.” (Ps. 37:4).

Our decision to agree with the Heavenly vision moves us onto new spiritual ground that releases God’s favor and opens doors of opportunity. Then as we make the decision to step out unto new paths, standing on the Word of God and decreeing and declaring His truth, the vision is given the potential to become reality.

Faith That Sees

In applying this to faith, when a revelation is received from God, is observed by faith, and seen in vision, if it is believed and called forth into reality—the invisible becomes visible! By faith we call forth the things that are not as though they are!  Faith sees with spiritual eyes and nurtures the vision with God-given imagination; the vision takes hold of the person and because of faith they will not let go until it has come forth. The vision is conceived on the inside by observing it in spirit, and becomes established by declaration of faith words. Our internal capacity to conceive must increase, and the wineskin of the mind refashioned to contain the largeness of God’s revelation. We hold on to it by faith and occupy the revelation by giving it a place of prominence in our heart.The battle to give birth is a decision to fight for what we believe! Begin to SEE the door to opening to your opportunity, visualize it, embrace it and declare it!

By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.” Hebrews 11:11

After recently reading this passage my spirit became very stirred as I saw all these principles come together powerfully in Sarah—I saw something marvellous that I had not seen before. Firstly, the miracle came forth by faithSarah believed! Secondly, where did her faith come from—she counted Him faithful who had promised. Sarah had experienced the faithfulness of God in her life on many occasions. The word for faith used in this scripture is pistis and means: conviction of the truthfulness of God! Sarah received strength to conceive, the Greek word for strength is Dunamis which means: miraculous, supernatural power.

It is interesting that the word used for conceive is used 11 times, only once as conceive and ten times as foundationSarah’s mind was renewed by faith in God—she saw, she believed, she trusted, thereby establishing a foundation of faith for all future generations.  Sarah decided, she made the decision to act on the promise that marked out the course of her lifeShe occupied the revelation and nurtured it, and brought forth a child in old age!  Sarah’s faith released the explosive, miraculous, dunamis power of God to break forth in her body and in her life.

Begin to see and observe God’s vision for your life. Occupy the revelations He has given you—hold on to them! Decide in agreement with God, then frame the future within those parameters with His Word. God is giving us partnership in Sonship. He’s saying:

Decide! Tell me what your heart’s desire! Move out within the parameters of your life based on what I have given you in Vision. You have the mind of Christ! Decide, declare it and it will be established, and light will shine on the course you have taken!”

YOUR WARFARE HAS ENDED – THE MOVE TO THE HIGHEST SEAT OF AUTHORITY

The Plot To Steal Authority

What we have witnessed in the battle for Judge Kavanaugh to take his seat on the Supreme Court—the highest court in the land, parallels the great battle the Body of Christ has been facing in the move to take and occupy the highest seat of authority in Christ, entrusted to us by God. God has great and mighty things on the horizon, spiritual ground to be taken in the fight to occupy this High Place of rulership—the place where we legislate in tandem with the Councils of Heaven.

Daniel had favor with King Darius and was called occupy the high places in Babylon. The enemy forces of hell were determined to prevent this from ever happening and plotted his demise—a trip into the lion’s den. Daniel’s situation portrays a similar picture in the attack launched against Judge Kavanaugh—and as in so many instances in scripture, the plot backfired against his enemies. The struggle to overcome in persecution is the way of spiritual advancement. The force of the attack that Judge Kavanaugh endured shows the ferocity and level of hatred the enemy has against those who are advancing to occupy the high places in Christ. These are leaders who will make the way for the Body of Christ to receive the Promises and enter into the purposes of God.

A Vanguard Army Chosen To Lead The Way

A Vanguard army chosen to lead the way forward is being released as God’s first fruit of sons and daughters coming into fullness of maturity. In Israel’s campaign to take the Promised Land, 40,000 warriors crossed over ahead of the nation to lead the way forward. There is at present a company of apostolic, prophetic leaders who having attained to maturity are marked for advancement. These leaders, in their spiritual struggle have attained to the authority to rule; they prepare the way of the Lord in a movement to occupy the high places and to take territory in all spheres of life and community.

Only the Great Shepherd, through the Holy Spirit can navigate the Body of Christ through this volatile period of history to our destination. Apostolic, prophetic leaders hear the word of the Lord and interpret the times for His people.  They are given vision to see God’s expected end, and work with Him in charting the course ahead for His people to breakthrough and crossover.

“…LORD your God,who went in the way before you to search out a place for you to pitch your tents, to show you the way you should go, in the fire by night and in the cloud by day.” Deuteronomy 1:33

Her Warfare Has Ended

For the past few years many have received revelations regarding the numbers 111 or 1111.  In January of this year the Lord’s word to me was Jeremiah 1:11, where He asked Jeremiah, “What do you see?” The transition from Jeremiah 1:11 to 1:12 is authority, where He declares, “I am ready to perform my word.”  God was ready to put His words in Jeremiah’s mouth To root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant.” I believe this speaks to our present world dynamic.

Recently I was asked to speak at a church on November 11 when the Lord reminded me of this word. Later I was listening to a secular political video where the speaker said that 11/11 this year was going to be a significant date. This caught my attention! I then recalled that World War I ended with tremendous relief and celebration at 11 am on 11/11/1918. This year 11/11/2018 will mark the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War I.

God then reminded me of Isaiah 40:2, where He instructed Isaiah to comfort His people, and tell her that her warfare is ended! I believe this year 11/11/18 will mark a time of closure to the warfare the people of God have endured, and will begin a time of significant breakthrough for many people.  It will be a time of breaking through into a season of courage and strength as we become seated with Him in His authority occupying the high places. We’re about to see great shifts occur as the people of God begin to rise up to occupy and hold the places that are our inheritance in Christ.

There was a very touching moment in a Fox interview with Brett Kavanaugh, where he was asked if the President was standing with him, and with trembling lips he answered, “Yes, he is standing with me.”  The President’s backing gave him the strength and the courage to stand and not give up in the fight, in the face of extreme persecution.  Today, Judge Kavanaugh is seated as Justice Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court of the United States of America. With God, victory is our right and is always possible if we stay the course knowing that the Lord stands with us and will never fail us!

Is the war over? No, the war will continue until Jesus returns. The warfare that is ending is the personal warfare we have suffered through in the enemy’s attempts to shut us down, shut us up, push us to give up, to cave in to his threats, to destroy our lives and even attempt to kill us.  In Joel chapter 2, the Lord reveals a time of warfare and terrible oppression by a great army. Further on in verses 18-32, He declares that He will have mercy on the nation and send an abundance of grain, New Wine and Oil. He tells them that He will drive back the terrible army that had oppressed them and promises to end the warfare!  In verse 28 He makes a promise to restore all the years that the demonic locusts had stolen from the lives of His people and promises a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit, “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh…”

God is about to return double for all the years of trouble, just as He did with Job!  The Angel Armies of Heaven are ushering the people of God out of the wilderness years of preparation and refining into engagement as a unified force.  With courage God’s people are pushing back the darkness in an apostolic thrust to take their promised lands. The battle for the nations and the Harvest is beginning, and there is at present a momentum building toward great victories! We are about to see God move in powerful demonstrations of his power on behalf of His people.

After the Lord stated that their warfare had ended in Isaiah 40:2, in the following verses He then declared the great mandate of the people of God—to prepare the way of the Lord!  This is the mandate of the Elijah generation moving out in great strength, faith and with the Glory of God seen upon them.

Begin to make way for Jesus to enter your gatherings, your families, your communities and the mountains you occupy! Decide that your warfare has ended, that it is now time for you to occupy your seat of authority. Decide and it shall be established and light will shine on your paths! (Job 22:28)

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the LORD; Make straight in the desert A highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth; The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” Isaiah 40:3-5

The Transcendent Dynamic of The Journey

Jesus is one-day returning to Jerusalem, Israel. All things will be brought to bear authentically with this reality. Heaven and Earth and all of history is Divinely caught in the dynamic toward this end—all political realities, all economic, all mountains and spheres, and all humanity. All things will bow, will align, will serve, we’ll succumb, will give way to the procession of the King of kings up to His Throne. All agendas and all resistance must give way to His Supreme Majesty.

Our evaluations and perspectives cannot be limited to the distractions of singular occurrences and events. Enlarging our vision to see beyond the current to God’s desired end, with the understanding that on this journey we align ourselves, our churches and ministries with the movements of God, is a crucial ingredient to success and victory. Our hearts must become one with His and our faces set on His course and His pathways.

“Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools.  They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.”  Psalm 84:5-7

Prophesy To The Breath!

 

On the Day of Atonement, in this time of shifting, new seasons and expectation of doors opening, I was praying and seeking the Lord regarding the dynamics of the year ahead. He showed me that with the opening of new doors certain things needed to be left behind, and in certain areas and projects new life would break forth and be carried over into the new season. There were projects I had begun that were prospering to a degree, and there were others that were prepared and ready, yet appeared to be abiding in stillness, waiting in expectation of the Breath of Life.

As I prayed, I felt I led to read the Bible and opened to Ezekiel 37:3, to where the Lord was asking Ezekiel, “Can these bones live?”  I sensed the Lord was leading me to my answer. While acknowledging and honouring Israel’s place in this passage, I felt He was asking me the question,can these bones live? His instruction to me was to Prophesy! To call for the Breath and the wind to blow on these projects!

“And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord GOD, You know.”Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!  Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.”  Ezekiel 37:3-4

I believe this is a word for many—much in the body of Christ that may seem dead is about to come alive in the power of the Holy Spirit. Resurrection power will course through the Body bringing life into all the cell structure––the cell containers of life that have been prepared and ready to host the life of Christ in fullness. God said to speak life and prophesy to them and they would live!

The Sons of Men Given Dominion!

Psalm chapter 8 tells us that with all the magnificent Glory of God’s Creation, He has given Dominion over the works of His hands, to the sons of men! We are given command of the prophetic word of the Lord in Christ and all things must, therefore, yield and obey—everything is under man’s dominion!

“…what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honour. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet…” Psalm 8:4-6

In Mark 11:23 God said that we can have whatever we say.This is true in both the negative and in the positive. The question is, what are we saying?

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.”

Even the earth must yield to the word of the Lord in our mouths! God began to show me that in order to speak the Word of the Lord in confidence, that I needed to have His vision;I needed to see what He was seeing and to believe it! He convicted me about words that I had been saying, words that did not line up with His vision for my life. He is asking us, “What are you seeing, and what are you focused on? Do you see My glory and success breaking forth from your life? Do you see yourself as I see you, doing the things that I have called you to do?”

God’s has qualified us for our destiny—the destiny created and prepared for us to now step into! He will never fail us, His responsibility is to ensure that we get to the finish line. Are you ready to take the risk?

God says to ask for rain in the time of rain. When it is raining, when there is an outpouring, that is the time to ask for rain! We are in the season of rain, the season of the Life and power of God breaking forth. God wants to open the floodgates over our lives. It is imperative to God that we partner with him to leave the things He wants us to leave behind, press on to call forth what is not, and to call for the Breath to come into what already is, that He wants to remain!

I believe this word is for the body of Christ, to all who have not yet seen the life Break out in their ministries to the fullness that they were believing for. God is saying to prophesy to the Breath to come, to breathe Life on the containers we have prepared to showcase His Glory in this hour.

“Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.'” So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.Ezekiel 37:9-10

We are now at a critical juncture in history, in the movements of God. A time when we must be closely aligned to Him, and to his movements—hearing His voice and doing His will. A vast army has been prepared in the secret place of travail, and Life is about to break in—to break us out.  The breaking in is for breaking us out!

Flood Waters Pressing Against The Church Doors

The Lord reminded me of a time many years ago; I was part of a church that had received many powerful prophetic words of a move of God from many well-known prophetic voices. It seemed that we are on the edge of something very powerful and everyone in the congregation was sensing it. It was as if the Holy Spirit was hovering and brooding over us. One of the intercessors had a powerful vision of double doors made of glass bulging inward toward the inside of the church. It was as if great flood waters were pressing against the doors and about to crash in. It was the Presence of the Lord wanting to break in—a mighty wave of His Glory pressing in on the church!

The revival never came. Revival costs!  There is a price to be paid and conditions to be met. Sacrifices placed on God’s Altar in worship. At that time, I heard the Lord say very clearly, “Give Me a sacrifice.”Sacrifice is something that costs us. As the Presence was pressing against the door of the church I felt the Lord was saying, “Give me a reason to show up.” I am not referring to the Presence of God that is always with us, I am speaking about the manifest Presence and Glory of God invading a church or territory.

Resurrection Glory breaks in on something that is dead. God wants a sacrifice! The sacrificial cost is to give Him our lives, surrendering all to him…or,it may be something in particular or someone that He is asking you to give up, something to be laid down or to give someone, it may be our time or a financial offering He may be asking for.  There is a partnering with Heaven to bring forth and release the prophetic word.

Those who have ears to hear, they will hear!

The Day of Pentecost came shortly after that vision and the Lord instructed me that we were to have a meeting, a day of worship and prayer set apart for exalting His Name. The day before I was to share this with the congregation I got laryngitis and could not speak.  I knew the Lord was saying I was to speak, and thought that he would heal my voice. I prayed and ask the Lord to heal my voice so that I could impart His heart for this day—I sensed that the day apart was to be special, that He wanted to move in a new way.

When I got up to speak I still had no voice!  I then heard the Lord say in my heart, that my lack of a voice was a sign and wonder—that He wanted to speak in a whisper! He said those who have ears to hear, they would hear!  The Lord did showed up in a powerful way that day, many were slain including children and began to speak in tongues.

It can be a fearful thing when the Lord chooses to speak in a whisper as the noise of pride, sin and the cares of life can drown out the sound of His voice. Those who are drawing aside to give Him His place will hear His voice. The Lord has been speaking loudly as the sound of a trumpet, I believe He is now about to speak in a whisper—many who have laid down their lives for His glory and have drawn close to Him will hear.

The great saints in the Bible and the great revivalists of old were men and women whose lives were lived on the altar of sacrifice. They did not love their lives onto death (Rev. 12). They gave the Lord all for His Glory and His will to be done. The anointing they carried—gained from living sacrificially, transformed whole cities, nations and communities.

Surrender is not just about getting on our knees or taking on a posture of humility. It is about the heart that bows low to the will of God in obedience to His Word—it is an inward posture of reverence. It’s about a life that loves obedience, perseveres in love and does not capitulate—a life that presses on to pursue a walk of righteousness in the face of adversity. It is revealed in the choice to keep our hearts clean and free of offense, the choice to honour when you don’t think that honour is due, the choice to yield your will when to do so feels like pain and death; the choice to go where your heart fears to go and to stand resolutely on the Truth in the face mocking.

God open our eyes to see the Presence bulging at the door of Your House, crying out, “Give me a sacrifice—a reason to break in!” This is the season of the Feast of Tabernacles—the last feast to be fulfilled by the Lord. It is a time when we give to the Lord offerings made by fire—something that costs.  The Lord said to the Laodician church, “I counsel you to buy from me gold tried in the fire.” When we give all to Him, then we may hear the voice of the Lord whisper, telling us,  “Prophesy to the Breath,” and His Life will break in and break us out into the harvest fields.
