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!

Receive The Scepter of Authority!

 

Over the days of Purim, in a devotional time with the Lord, He began to open certain aspects of Esther’s story to me. I have taught many times on the story of Esther as have many, and have tended to focus on certain chapters, as in chapter 4, where she courageously makes the decision to go before the king, despite protocol stating that unless the king put forth his scepter, her death would be guaranteed. Esther made the decision to risk her life for the cause of her people and said those famous words, “If I perish, I perish!”  Both Esther and Mordecai received great favor because of their obedience to God.  That morning however, God began to highlight to me the process Esther went through before she was chosen to be Queen.

Esther was greatly favored by Hegai the king’s eunuch and was given a special room in the king’s house with seven women from the king’s courts to serve her. Hegai is a picture of the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives, to prepare us for our King Jesus. The Holy Spirit is there to love on us, teach, prepare, equip, heal, and refine, to bring us forth in Glory.

Esther was prepared for twelve months in oils—twelve representing governmental authority. For six months she was prepared with the oil of Myrrh and for six months with oils to beautify her.  Myrrh was the oil used to anoint Jesus for burial. Nicodemus brought one hundred pounds of Myrrh and aloes with which they anointed Jesus’ body and wrapped it in linen after His death on the Cross. Myrrh represents the willingness to offer one’s life as a sacrifice for the greater good, and for the Kingdom of God.

Esther was soaked in these oils representing the anointing of the Holy Spirit.  She was being prepared in purity, to go before the King. She was being prepared for her position as a representative of the Royal kingdom. Esther was prepared in purity for intimacy and relationship with the King. She was prepared in wisdom to carry the scepter of the kingdom’s authority, and she was prepared in character to write the Royal decrees.

In my time with the Lord, I saw a picture of myself being clothed in the Royal garments of the Kingdom and saw God handing me His scepter. I believe this picture is representative word for all who have paid the price and made the choice to remain in His Fire through the refining process.

As I pondered this picture, I suddenly felt led to check the definition of the word Scepter and discovered that it meant to invest with authority. I was then led me to check the definition of the word invest and was surprised that both these words were confirmed the meaning and significance of the picture God was revealing to me.

The word invest means to provide or endow someone with a quality or with an attribute; to formally confer a rank or office on someone; to invest something or confer a right or power to someone; to endow with authority. Invest also means to clothe or cover with a garment; to clothe with the insignia of a rank.

God is presently investing and endowing many with great authority, this includes many of His daughters called to the frontlines. He is clothing with Royal garments all those having come through the fires of purification and having been soaked in the oils of the Holy Spirit. He is placing His overcoming ones in the rank He has prepared for them. He is putting Royal garments on His Bride who will wield the scepter of righteousness and decree the demise of the enemy campaign against His people and the destruction of their strongholds.

There are many who have persevered in intimacy, who have persevered in prayer, and have continued to believe to see the salvation of the Lord against present tyranny.  Esther is now rising to be presented and seen before the courts and before the world stage, truly prepared for such a time as this! Esther represents those who have been called to stand in authority in the courts of Heaven and legislate the heavens in Christ as described in Zechariah 3:7:

“If you will walk in My ways, And if you will keep My command, Then you shall also judge My house, And likewise have charge of My courts; I will give you places to walk Among these who stand here.” Zechariah 3:7

When king Ahasuerus summoned Vashti to come forth and show her beauty she refused. Vashti represents the religious and disobedient wife. Esther was brought forth to replace her.  Esther was on the edge of making the same mistake of not rising to her place in her hour, to stand in the place of destiny created for her.  Mordecai declared to Esther that if she chose to remain silent, deliverance would arise from elsewhere.  When she hesitated, Mordecai wisely admonished her with these words:

“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish.”  Esther 4:14

Esther made the wise decision to be courageous having understood that she was called and created for this moment of history. Today we are living in a time of great trouble on earth and may be approaching times of even greater trouble and God is now calling for His Bride to arise and present herself!  As  Mordecai admonished and warned Esther to take her place, God is calling His Bride to come out from their dressing room and is saying to her: ‘Arise and shine for your light has come! Come forth into the Glory I have prepared for you.”

God has been at work carefully preparing His Body as the vessel that will give birth to the establishment of His Kingdom on Earth.  We have been in a long season of learning and growing in maturity.  During this time of growth, we have been kept by God within the confines or parameters of His protective shield.  This shield has acted like a giant incubator where God has been transforming us, as in the case of a caterpillar, from one form of species into a brand-new creature.

Many are now experiencing the sense of being on the edge of breakthrough, as the Body outgrows this place and pushes against the confines. There is a sense of having been trained as a prize stallion to run a race yet waiting in the stall for the trumpet to blow.

When the trumpet sounds, we will be given a window of time to do the work of building the Ark to contain and gather in the harvest.  We must be ready to run, with everything we have in us, when the trumpet sounds. God will sound His trumpet through His leaders who have been prepared to forge ahead and lead His tribes; those who have ears to hear Him and who have the anointing to marshal the army.

The Lord declared out of our belly would flow Rivers of Living Water (John 7).  This Greek word koilia sometimes translated as belly or heart, also means womb or a hollow cavity. The womb of the Bride is the container filled with all the treasures of God prepared for this hour. As the Bride comes forth in Glory, she will begin to birth God’s treasures in the Earth.  She is being cleansed and prepared as the womb that will give birth to the most glorious hour of all history.

The River flowing from the womb of the Bride will birth Life where death once reigned. Where the River flows there will be life! In the times surrounding the Day of the Lord, the Bride will enter the travail to bring forth birth the Harvest and God’s Kingdom on Earth. This travail and intercession will be aggressive and sometimes violent.  It is a determined travail that will not settle for anything less than the new life. What does this new life look like in the Bride? It looks like Isaiah 61; it looks like Jesus:

“The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards. And you will be called priests of the LORD, you will be named ministers of our God. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast. Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.

“For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing. In my faithfulness I will reward my people and make an everlasting covenant with them. Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the LORD has blessed.”

I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.”

The Bride’s water is about to break and gush forth, the baby is coming, and God will ensure that nothing will get in the way of the delivery.  The waters of the Holy Spirit will break forth over the Earth, ushering an intense and painful time of travail.  We will get through this time because of the joy of knowing the baby is coming and will arrive on time.

The Lord will cleanse His Body and make His Bride Glorious. This is the work the Lord must do in His Bride as He makes her harmless to humanity and dangerous to the enemy (Matt. 10:16). This season of circumcision and healing we have been in must have taken place before the Bride could be released to bring transformation in the Earth.

The Lord is seeking out those who will humble themselves and submit to His ways to release them to go and conquer lands for His kingdom. God is asking us if we love Him enough to take the risk and trust Him enough to believe that through Him, we can overcome all hindrances in us and all obstacles on the path ahead.

There are two prominent revelations in Esther 4:14, the ‘time’ we are called to, and the ‘cost’ of holding back, “…you will perish.”  Our attitude must become that of Esther’s—she drank the Lord’s cup and declared, “If I perish, I perish.”  I believe that this is the name of the aged bottle of Wine reserved to be served in the last days, for the Day of the Lord!

When Esther chose to come before the king in boldness, the sceptre of the authority of the kingdom was lifted toward her.  She was given great favour and her requests granted, up to half the kingdom!  Esther touched the head of the Sceptre of the kingdom, representing an act of union with the king.

The Hebrew word for top is rosh, which means head.  Under the governance of the king—the head of the kingdom, sanctioned by the full weight of his rule, Esther was granted power and right in the kingdom!  Esther was given great authority and the liberty to write any decree on behalf of her people to foil the plots of the enemy! As the number eight represents new beginnings, Esther 8:8 ushered a new season  and beginning for the people of God:

“Now write another decree in the king’s name on behalf of the Jews as seems best to you, and seal it with the king’s signet ring—for no document written in the king’s name and sealed with his ring can be revoked.” Esther 8:8 

The King told Esther to write another decree, taking into consideration the decree Haman had already written to destroy the Jews. The king tells Esther to write a new decree that would eliminate Haman’s decree. Esther wrote one that gave her people the right to rise up and defend their rights, property and families, and completely annihilate their enemy.

Esther completed the job given by God to Saul, to destroy the Amalakite enemy. Saul like Vashti represents the religious in this hour, who through sin, deception or disobedience are working against the purposes of God. The Lord declared in His Word that if we were not for Him we were against Him.

“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.” Matthew 12:30 

Like Esther, God is now calling forth His leaders to now present themselves; this includes His daughters who play significant roles in the government of His House. They are to be granted great authority, power, and right to thwart the worst plots of the enemy in these last days. They will be anointed to write new decrees to drive them out, and release great blessing for the people of God!

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is it Time For The Sons of God?

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The God Who Answers By Fire!

As I was praying recently the Lord spoke to me and said that more shaking was about to come, that this was a good time to posses the Spirit of the fear of the Lord! Before I go further, I would first like to build on the topic of fear that I touched on in a recent article, as fear can be both a good and a bad thing, depending on who or what you are fearing. In my last article I said in essence:

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 when it draws us to God and causes us to become obedient. 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, to move them out from a place of complacency or danger.

God designed humanity with a hormone called adrenaline for times of crisis; it increases blood flow and prepares the body to act in an emergency. This is good fear! Another good fear to have is the fear of the Lord that the scriptures say is the beginning of wisdom. The fear of the Lord keeps us safe in a position of awe before an awesome and holy God. The fear of the Lord provides protection and prevents us from straying into sinful situations that lead to our harm. To maintain a healthy fear of the Lord, is to remain safely tucked away in Him. When living and moving and having our being in Him, He is magnified before us in His might and His power above all, and we will therefore not fear anything but Him. The enemy holds no power whatsoever to intimidate and cause fear, as He has no power unless given to him through sin and disobedience. His power to steal, kill, and to destroy is founded upon disobedience to God!

We have entered a season of war and are moving through times of trial and testing on the Earth. The enemy is fighting to win and is making great inroads. As I said previously, most Christians are not fighting at all, except with each other! This must stop for us as a corporate people, as it distracts us from recognizing the dangers and the pitfalls ahead. We are not to fight in the flesh, for God has given us weapons to fight that are not carnal but they are mighty in God to pull down strongholds (2 Cor. 10:4).

There is a dichotomy to Christ depicting the two differing sides of mercy and Judgment—the double-edged sword. Many leaders, ministries, and individuals present from one or the other of these perspectives, some leaning heavily on one of these two characteristics. The opposing views of mercy and judgment have created some discord in the Body of Christ, as many aggressively taken their stand on one side or the other. However, God would have us understand that the double-edged sword comes forth from one source—from one mouth.

In Scripture, Jesus is presented to us as the Lamb that was slain and as the Lion of the tribe of Judah—He is both. All facets of Christ come from one heart and one mind. The key truth important to note, is that all that God is and does, is founded on His Love. His mercy pours forth from His heart of love, and His judgment is embedded with His wisdom and His love.

When I first got saved, after the initial honeymoon season of God’s love being poured out on me, I was quickly assigned to Boot Camp for intense training, refining of character and understanding of the spiritual warfare that began to target me ferociously. At the time, it felt as if I were running the gauntlet, with attacks and fiery arrows coming at me from all sides. For over two decades, I lived through God’s refining fire; yet through it all, I have always known the intensity of the Father’s love for me.

The scriptures teach that the Father disciplines His children (Heb. 12). In a typical family the father is usually the disciplinarian and the mother, the comforter, showering the child with love. Both are needed in the child’s growth and development. A father will relate to his grown son in a far different way than He would with his four-year-old or adolescent child. It is the same with our Heavenly Father, He is now looking for a high level of maturity to be revealed in His sons and daughters, from all He has sown into our lives over many years. The Father is looking for a return on His investment—He is looking for the revelation of the sons of God!

During the boot camp years and through an extremely painful and difficult trial, I sensed the Lord’s surpassing love and concern for me; however, He did not offer pity as I was prone to self-pity. He did not even offer me comfort, as at that time, I was in the midst of learning one of the most valuable lessons of my life. Instead, I heard the still small voice of God, the voice Elijah heard in the cave, after his spat with self-pity; the Lord said to me, “You have fallen under the weight of this trial…when it comes around again, rise above it.” At that moment, I didn’t need pity or loving arms, I needed to understand that I possessed the ability in Christ to rise in His authority, to overcome in this trial, and send my enemies fleeing. I was being trained to stand in conflict. That became one of the most important lessons I have learned to date. I was determined from that day, in the strength of the Lord, never to allow circumstances to overwhelm me and destroy me again, when I possessed the supernatural power in Christ to change it!

Understanding how God is moving in any given situation, at any given time has a multifaceted dynamic to it. Our knowledge, in a carnal sense, is limited to one perspective of a process that is in motion. We stand at a fixed position in time, in any given situation, viewing a moment in God’s transcendent and fluid process of transformation—our knowledge and understanding is limited, and can therefore only be ‘in part.

There are so many layers of consciousness hidden from our view, in the tapestry of God’s handiwork, whether globally, in a nation, or in an individual’s life. If we understood this, we would see that to choose one facet of God to depict Him—as in mercy over judgment, or love over discipline, would be to miss the surpassing, multifaceted, treasure of a triune, omniscient being, presented to humanity as the one and only true God.

Many church leaders keep their people locked in an adolescent stage, dependent on them, never allowing them to grow into the mature, courageous, warrior leaders God intended—needed for this hour. Some leaders pile on the unsanctified mercy, and unsanctified grace, providing people with the permission to remain in a state of immaturity. They remain stagnant in regard to growth in righteousness that leads to strength in character, and a life that is deeply rooted and anchored in God—this is the life that cannot be shaken! Many Christians in my time of trial, with good intentions, would have comforted me, offered me Christian platitudes, like God will make a way—when what I needed was some tough love to shake me out of my stupor, caused by unbelief and self-pity, and a reminder of who I was in Christ.

When you have truly known and experienced the love of God, most would be willing to give all for Him, some, may even be willing to lay down their lives for Him. Peter thought that he would be willing, until his love was tested in the Fire; when he heard the rooster crow three times, he ran. When things do not go our way, we can become offended in God, giving the enemy an opportunity to take advantage of our disappointment or disillusionment. Enduring love is love that has been tested by Fire in crisis, tempered by discipline—as steel is tempered in fire to increase its strength. Elijah said to the people at Mt. Carmel, “…the god who answers by fire—he is God” (1 Kings 18:24). Be assured our love will be tested.

Many of this present generation have been pampered or neglected by parents, given few boundaries, indulged by society, provided with everything, with nothing required in return. We are now all suffering the consequences of this, as they now act out on society. The frightening thing is that many of them now occupy important leadership positions in government. Unfortunately, this may also be true for many in this generation of Christians, grown up with too much grace and too little discipline—many abandoning the church when they become offended. Many, never having been taught the foundational principles of scripture, of obedience and humility, submission, and accountability. Yes, we can all sing, shout, and dance—and personally, I do love all of that! But when the shaking begins and the fire heats up, the question remains, will faith be there to uphold us? In the fire many are shaken and become offended in God. Even John the Baptist, who spent years in the wilderness had his doubts about Jesus when he was put in jail; he sent to ask if Jesus was truly the One. Jesus answered him, “…blessed is the one who is not offended in Me.”

I am putting an emphasis on discipline, the fire that refines, and the fear of the Lord, because during a recent time of prayer, the Lord brought these things to my attention. He said that more shakings were about to come, and the fire would be heating up; that shakings would be coming like travail upon a woman, increasing in intensity, that will bring forth a birthing, an awakening that is His Great Reseta reset back to the knowledge of God and to the fear of the Lord! This Reset will be the love of God coming in a great wave of discipline on the earth. The Father is about to give His children and the Earth a spanking. Those who fear God will bow. Those who do not will be offended and fall away. The earth will be given the choice either to rebel or to seek out the face of God. Much of the world has been turned upside down, but God is about to set it right again—but it may come with some discomfort.

God is saying, to choose today whom you will serve. Will you to stay on God’s side and not be offended? Will you fear man, or will you fear God? The scriptures declare that our God is a Consuming Fire. There was a time when God instructed me to read Isaiah 33; verse 14 asks the question of, who can dwell with the devouring fire, who can live with everlasting burnings? It answers, he who walks righteously, and goes on to reveal the reward of living such a life:

He will dwell on high; His place of defense will be the fortress of rocks; Bread will be given him, His water will be sure. Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; They will see the land that is very far off.” Isaiah 33:16

We see this ability to dwell in fire also depicted in the account of Shadrach, Meschach and Abed-Nego, whose courage, born from a disciplined life, chose the fire rather than to bow to idols and gods. They told the king:

“…our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” Daniel 3:17-18

The fire was heated up seven times for them, but they were not burned, as a fourth man was seen with them in the fire. If we choose to go through the fire of God voluntarily, we will find that it burns nothing, other than our chains and bondages of sin. God is looking, and the Earth is crying, for a new breed of saints who have been trained in fire, who are devoted to a righteous life, firmly anchored to the love of God. James provides us with particularly important instruction to take note of in these times of viral opinions, as we will be called to account for every idle word we have spoken before a holy God.

“Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly. Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way…the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself. People can tame all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles, and fish, but no one can tame the tongue. It is restless and evil, full of deadly poison. Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!” James 3:1-10

I believe God would  say to many: “Which part of touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm, did you not understand? What part of listen to my prophets and you will prosper, did you not get? I chose this word 2 Chronicles 20:20 for the year 2020 to release the Word of the Lord for this critical hour. This was not a coincidence; it was by Divine design to test you.”

We have little understanding of the spiritual realities at work in the many spheres of God’s divine unfolding plan.  As Paul said, we should judge nothing before its time!

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.”

 

Be Positioned in Me For The Times!

 

In regard to the recent events in the U.S, I just have to say with confidence that God is still on the Throne, and that it is not over until He says it is over! Eyes have been focused on the United States, but our God who ways are so much higher than ours, and whose eyes are seeing a much greater picture than ours, sees the whole chessboard, an all the players involved. The war we are fighting is over the truth! Victory comes when lies and deception are exposed. God’s plan for winning the war on truth is centered around a people who present the multifaceted wisdom of God to principalities, powers and to the world. What is the multifaceted wisdom of God that scatters the enemy and annihilates their agenda? This wisdom of God can be defined as the way of the Cross and of sacrifice—a people living a sacrificial life modeled after Christ. Secondly, walking in the fear of the Lord, that is the beginning of wisdom. Third, it is to be filled with the Spirit of wisdom and understanding; and fourth, possessing the wisdom from above that according to James is humble, pure, peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

Such a person, possessing such a life, by his very stand for truth, righteousness and the principles of Godly wisdom, will defeat and shred the enemy’s defenses and remove their platform. They are a people who will possess the anointing to know what to do as Joseph did—the scripture states, that for his times there was none so wise as Joseph who knew what to do.

Godly wisdom is coming out of agreement with the enemy and the world, and into agreement with God! When we agree with the enemy and world principles, we are aligning ourselves with principalities and powers; and if, as Paul says, our warfare is with principalities and powers, then by our agreement with them, we come out on the losing end. However, when we come into an intentional, sold out agreement with the will and the Word of God, we have power to tear down the ungodly strongholds of lies, and rip the veil hiding the truth and Godly reality. All sin and iniquity are cloaked in lies; the war is over who will control the narrative. We can then understand why the mainstream media is on the frontlines of the war over truth, and over dominion of the Earth. Many are the arbiters of propaganda, bought and paid for by the powers of darkness. God is perfect in wisdom and His plan is always perfect!  He will release a great captivity of souls from bondage and His Glory upon His people.

Persecution of Christianity

Jesus said in His Word that if they persecuted Him, they would also persecute His followers, that all who desired to live Godly lives in Him would be persecuted. North America has been resting on a bed of comfort for an exceptionally long time, while Christians around the world have suffered tremendously. It may well be our time now to walk through a season of travail! The travail to birth the notable moves of God can be hard labor—God is warning us to be prepared for the travail; to be ready to stand resolute and hold the ground of truth, justice, and righteousness.

Christians must be focused on God with our eyes fixed on Him as we may see persecution of Christianity gaining in momentum. In the days to come Christians may be challenged in their faith and with their allegiance to Christ. Please, let me be clear that I am not an advocate for violence, but rather resisting and warring in the spirit through prayer and intercession, and in the natural, through peaceful means and action. 

The Mainstream media and the liberal machinery, including the social media giants, big corporations and banks are now all taking advantage of what happened on the Capitol in the U.S., to clamp down on all conservatives, conservative thinking and speech, and ultimately Christians—their chief target! Covid-19 has provided the perfect means to complete the job of cutting off communication and discourse.

The Great Reset—the agenda of the World Economic Forum—a group of the elites of the world, is in high gear. Their plan is unfolding and moving rapidly in all nations, working forcefully to shut down all avenues of resistance to their ideology in America, in Canada and the nations of the world. Nevertheless, we must be reminded that we are never to move in fear, as no one, and nothing, can stop the Wind and Power of the Holy Spirit from moving to determine the will of God!

Preparedness for the Road Ahead!

God will always move ahead of His people to carve out the paths ahead for them as He did with Israel on their journeys to the Promised Land. In my last two shows we discussed Luke 22:35-36 and I find that God is continuing to bring revelation and depth from this scripture for this notable hour of history. I believe God is showing that this passage holds understanding and direction for the changing times by continuing to shine His light on it. Let’s read it again:

“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

As we said previously, when Jesus said, “But now,” He is signalling to His disciples that something significant was about to happen that would cause a dramatic shift in times; He then proceeds to give them instructions on how to be prepared. In verse 35 Jesus points out three specific ways to be prepared—first He told the disciples to take money—Jesus is referring to finances or possibly another means of currency with which to purchase goods—this could include bartering. I believe our banking system is no longer secure, and it is best to play it safe. A few months ago, the Lord told me to have cash on hand, I didn’t fully understand but was obedient.

Second, Jesus then told them to take a knapsack. I believe this represents being prepared in the natural with the essentials, such as food, water and necessities stored for emergencies—this is wisdom, as even our government recommends having at least three months’ supply on hand; we do not know the way things will turn and should be prepared. Preparedness could also be inclusive of having ministry resources on hand for sharing Christ, as God’s heart is very much on saving souls. We should be thinking of ways that we can do our part, as we each have a share in the harvest.

In verse 36 Jesus then implied that the instructions given were directly related to the fulfillment of a certain prophecy that, He would be counted among the transgressors, or rebels. and ends by saying “For the things concerning Me have an end.” Both statements are profound and embedded with much revelation. That Jesus would be counted with the rebels revealed that trouble was coming for His followers. Within four decades after Christ, Rome completely clamped down on the Jewish people and destroyed Jerusalem.

Jesus’ first coming was in essence a revolution against the world construct of that time, challenging all spheres and beliefs with the higher precepts of God. Jesus is the revolution that moves His people to follow Him, wherever it may lead, as there will always be a price to pay for freedom. What is now becoming increasingly clear is the push in the narrative to label and brand all conservatives, all Trump supporters—a vast majority that are Christians—as insurrectionists and problematic to the progressive ideologies of the new society and world order presently being crafted.

Jesus then concluded  by saying that the things concerning Him have an end. Having an end means having its fulfillment or a specified conclusion. Jesus was warning His disciples of the Cross that was to come—the end that was awaiting Him and those who were His disciples. However, verse 36 has greater implications and is a word that carries through time, pointing also to the last days—a season of time when all things concerning Christ will be summed up, have its fulfillment, and will reach its final conclusion. These are times spoken of in scripture characterized by great turmoil in the Earth.

This is the time when God is trumpeting the call to all, “Come into the Ark you and all your household! Jesus Christ is the Ark fashioned for the salvation of mankind; it is an Ark that is fashioned in praise, as the praise of God’s people is His holy habitation. How do we escape the siege? We lift up our eyes and ascend in worship and in faith. Praise is our escape route! As Jesus inhabits our praise. This is how He comes down. Let the whole earth praise him! Praise is the way we will we navigate our way through these times!

In January of 2020 God gave me a vision where I saw myself standing in a small boat on the ocean in the midst of a great storm with lightning and dark clouds, I had my hands raised to heaven praising Him with peace and great joy in my heart! He then said to me, “Praise is how you will make it through this year!”  Recently in 2021 the Lord again said to me, “Praise Me in the storm, because praise will bring you through the storm.” Don’t be afraid of the storm; God said in His Word that when we walked through the storm, we should fear no evil.

 2021 and the decade ahead

Considering these times that we have been chosen for—times where things happen suddenly and quickly, we should also be believing for God’s best to break out in the lives of His people, and for great and effective doors to now open before us. Yet, we should also be prepared for the worst—as the worst will also be breaking out through a people who are committed to lawlessness and deception. This will truly be a season of Light and darkness—Let us choose to look to the Light and the One who has power over it all, and the ability to bring in great transformation and awakening. As we do this, we also take heed to Jesus’ Word that lawlessness will abound–we would therefore be wise to put on the whole armor of God, and to also put safeguards in place to protect ourselves and our families.

If you have not already done so, now would certainly be the time to get your House, your relationships, and your marriages in order, as we will need each other and have greater strength and impact in a stand of unity. Now would be the time to examine our hearts, our faith level and what our stance will be in the face of injustice, persecution and the attempted removal of our liberties and freedoms. Now is the time to press into God, seek His face and pursue an increased level of faith and an increase in the gifts and virtues of the Spirit. Now is the time to live a lifestyle of prayer and fasting and pressing into the supernatural gifts of God. God is looking to find faith and will be working in us to cause our faith to arise!

What will this new era look like for you, for your family, your church, your ministry, or your work? Spiritually, the Church will be transformed to become a new wineskin—the Ekklesia, the wineskin of God’s original intention—a wineskin having relevance to its times, functioning in strength, wisdom and supernatural authority in an atmosphere of the Presence and power of God.

This decade will see the rise of the influencers. Many will see their sphere of influence increase tremendously. God has been preparing you for this moment to give you a voice of influence in the sphere you were created for. Now is your time! You are the sons of God being released for this moment of history—you are the sons of God the earth is presently travailing for—embedded with Good News, possessing great wisdom and moving in excellence.

In the past God came down to accomplish His will through the ministry of chosen men and women. In these times, God will move through the ministry of an army of fearless, and courageous servants like David, Elijah, Deborah, Joshua and Joseph, all fashioned and trained in fire to stand resolute in the midst of turmoil and storms, armed with the wisdom of
God.

Recently as I was praying to the Lord about how to be positioned and prepared for these times, He stopped me abruptly in mid-sentence, almost in a rebuke and said, “Be ready and positioned in your identity in Me above all! Spend much time focused on Me.” He was saying first and foremost be focused on Him, intentionally looking to Him, positioned in Him, sitting at His gates and waiting daily in His Presence. He then impressed upon me that like Elijah, we were to be positioned in prayer, with our faces set, ready to each run our supernatural race. When Elijah saw the cloud—the sign of the coming downpour—he rose and outran the chariots. The people of God were created for this moment—don’t miss your moment to shine.

“For a Mere Moment”

 

I would like to share my heart on the situation in America and the prophetic words regarding this. Prophets are now being accused of having gotten it wrong, of being false prophets, and many are speaking out and cursing the prophetic. I feel I have a word from the Lord about this, that I would like to share and pray you will hear my heart on this. As far as prophecies regarding the elections are concerned, it wasn’t just one or two prophetic voices that prophesied that trump was going to win a second term; if that was the case we could easily say, well, they got it wrong, forgive them and move on. But rather, it was a great majority of reputable Prophets and prophetic voices, from North America and other nations; they all in unison, were declaring similar words they were receiving from the Lord, that either Donald Trump was going to win the election, win a second term, some said they heard he would win 2 consecutive terms.

I have a deep assurance in my spirit that the vast majority of such well-known, sound prophetic voices, from many streams in the Body of Christ, all declaring the same thing, could not have gotten it wrong. I don’t think that is possible! I do not call myself a prophet, but I believe I am prophetic, and that God speaks to me, so I do include myself in this, as I wrote that Donald Trump would win the 2020 election. I believe most if not all were hearing correctly and prophesying correctly. I have spent 27 years under the crushing, refining and loving hand of the Lord, learning to hear His voice and recognize how He speaks to me, and would like to say that I am not ready to apologize as I believe that the story is still unfolding. It is important to understand in interpreting what has happened, that prophecy is not an exact science. Prophecy is the heart and mind of God being delivered through human flesh, who may not be in possession of all the parts.

The mind of God is so vast and surpassing, so much higher in transcendence than our ways and our thoughts, that we must recognize that we cannot determine or control the way God intends to unfold His will. Prophets say what they hear and wait to see the manner in which God chooses to bring it to pass. This is what we are doing right now as we watch and we wait as things are unfolding daily—much that is not being shared on the news. We are living in unprecedented times and things are changing rapidly moment by moment.

Let us look at an example in scripture of the unfolding of a specific prophetic word. In 1 Chronicles 22:9-10 God spoke to David and declared that Solomon would become King after him and would build the house of the Lord. When David was old and dying, Adonijah, David’s other son rose up and declared himself to be the King. Adonijah prepared horses and chariots and fifty men to run before him, establishing his right. However, Nathan the prophet, Zadok the priest and David’s mighty men were not with Adonijah. Here we see that the prophecy given to David concerning Solomon took a turn in another direction. Nathan seeing what was happening, then advised Bathsheba to do something about it, as her life and the life of her son would be in danger if Adonijah remained as king. They went before King David and reminded him of the prophetic word. The king then acted and established Solomon as king over all Israel.

We do not know which way this present presidential drama will turn as the story unfolds, yet we must always remember history belongs to God, it is His-story, and God alone sets the narrative. The earth beneath our feet is presently rumbling as tectonic plates shift, pushing, and pulling against each other in the political and the religious spheres. We can sense we are on the edge of dramatic world changing events happening now all over the world. The Bride must go into the King’s chamber with the prophets as Bathsheba did with Nathan and remind Him of His Word. Then we must watch, we must wait, and we must pray for the Lord almighty of heaven and earth to move, just as He has promised. What will the King say about this present situation and how will He move, we don’t know?  Nevertheless, we will continue to serve the Lord and look to him for answers, without jumping to conclusions and judgments against our brothers and sisters and the prophetic voices who are serving the Lord and the Body of Christ faithfully.

This brings me to another very important piece to the puzzle for interpreting prophecy, and that is the condition of our hearts as servants of God.  What I have seen and heard from Christians over the last year has greatly disturbed me. The reactions of some prophetic voices and many saints to the events taking place in the world is partly why I believe God is holding back and is restraining himself from moving. Christendom has to get its act together. Firstly, a few prophetic voices have set an unchristian tone by using prophetic words as weapons to attack others they disagree with, setting a bad example to the Body of Christ.

The present situation is dire, but rather than bringing us together in unity against a powerful foe, it has only divided us further. We must ask ourselves, are we revealing Christ? Have we used wisdom in the way that we speak to each other! My cry is like Paul’s who said, “Who is sufficient for these things?” Who can stand and claim perfect wisdom? On Facebook and social media, in the posts and the comments, I have seen so much anger and saints warring against each other; Sometimes I have wanted to comment but refrained myself. But I am ashamed of the anger that sometimes rises up in me and slips out of my mouth. Many have allowed anger, frustration at the injustice to drive us to war with each other rather than with enemy—the spiritual hosts of wickedness.  This is a plot of the enemy and a trap that many Christians have fallen into. Cursing others is witchcraft! We must also recognize whether we have tried to control God and events with our prophetic words and prayers. God will not be controlled by us—this is witchcraft.

In the past and over decades, the Lord has told me that when I am in control, He is not! God waits until we release control to Him, He is then free and released to move in any given situation, in the way He chooses to. When I have been wronged and tried to fight my own battles, God was standing at a distance removed from the fight. In such an instance He gave me this scripture:

“For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps: “WHO COMMITTED NO SIN, NOR WAS DECEIT FOUND IN HIS MOUTH” who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously…” 1Peter 2:21 

There was a time in my life a few decades ago where I was greatly wronged and felt persecuted falsely. I was also a young immature Christion and acted in un-Christlike ways. I felt alone and abandoned even by many of my friends; it was a really bad time in my life. In that moment when I felt that Jesus, my only true friend would defend me and save me—He didn’t. I was so deeply wounded and so grieved in my spirit that he did not stand up for me, that I turned away him for a moment also. I couldn’t look at a Bible, I couldn’t pray and basically, I just wept for probably about a year. It was a terrible time for me, but over time God wooed me back to him and restored my soul that was in pieces at that time. Eventually I was able to see and understand that He was not able to stand with me while I was in sin, fiercely fighting my own battles, and controlling things. You see God cannot and will not stand with sin.

As I have been pondering these things over the last few days, I began to receive more revelation on Luke 22, beyond what we spoke of in the last show. I saw that on the Cross, Jesus was also abandoned by His own, even those who had followed him, that it was only a very small remnant that stood by His side. In His own distress and need, He cried out “My God my God why have you forsaken me?”  Because Jesus was bearing the sin of the world upon Himself, God the father had to forsake him for a moment, during the time where he carried the sin of the world. God cannot stand with sin. However, satan overplayed His hand as the scriptures say that if he had known what he was doing, he would not have crucified the Christ, because after the Cross came resurrection day, that brought about his downfall!

So, also, as in my time of battle, God forsook me in my sin, but in my restoration, I came back broken, yet far stronger, cleaner, and wiser than before. I believe this to be true also for the Body of Christ—for judgment begins in the House of God—for the United States of America. Recently I have been hearing the words ringing in my spirit repeatedly, For a mere moment! For a mere moment!  I recognized these words from Isaiah 54 and believe it is a word for America and for us all:

“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 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. “O you afflicted one, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems, and lay your foundations with sapphires. I will make your pinnacles of rubies, Your gates of crystal, and all your walls of precious stones. All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children. In righteousness you shall be established; You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; And from terror, for it shall not come near you.

I truly believe God’s will is to give Donald Trump four more years. We fought for that in prayer because we saw the signs of what was to come without him standing at the helm of the battle—and this goes for all nations. With everything that is happening in Canada moving it toward evil and the satanic agenda, many of us in prayer have cried out and wondered where our Leader is who will fight for us—I am speaking in the natural. I believe we have behaved so badly that God had to abandon us for a mere moment, giving us some time to see our hearts and to repent.

It is especially important right now for Christians to recognize that some of the things that have been coming out of our mouths—the name calling, the criticism against our brothers and sisters, leaders railing against each other publicly on social Media, has been causing great division in the body of Christ. The Bible says that a house divided cannot stand! We must recognize the danger of the times that we are in, and that we cannot support and agree with Satan. God will not support us when we agree with the enemy; many who know better may have lost sight of that.

The army of the Lord is a holy army; we are created to be holy soldiers in the army of God. Our leader, our God, our captain, is a holy God. Before the battles began for the promised land, Joshua encountered this holy God. When Joshua asked him if He was for them or for the other side, He answered neither, and said, I come as the Commander of the army of the Lord! God is on His own side—the side of righteousness and holiness. He then told Joshua to take off his shoes for the place where he stood was holy. The Lord is holy and if we want to stand with him, we must be holy. We will not win the war, and we will be soundly defeated if we attempt to move forward with this level of sin in the camp.

True repentance is needed if we wish to see the Lord move in power. During 2020 there was a lot of talk about 2 chronicles 7:14, about humbling ourselves and turning from our wicked ways, but evidenced by what is seen in the comments on Facebook, I guess we were just mouthing words and there was no real heart felt repentance and turning away from sin. Nevertheless, we cannot truly humble ourselves, no matter how hard we try. We can pursue humility and attempt to put on a humble face, and yet still find pride and arrogance hiding in our heart. It takes God alone to break the pride in man and to humble us, then we will find the fragrance of Christ coming forth from a heart of brokenness. God declared that He loves a broken a contrite heart; that that is the one to whom he will look. True humility comes from obedience to God, from embracing the cross, embracing brokenness and not desiring revenge but rather treating our enemies with compassion.

Jesus, as He was hanging on the cross asked the father to forgive them for, they knew not what they were doing. We cannot move forward in this war—and it is a war, with anger, hatred and name calling on our lips. We have then become like the very enemy that we are wanting to defeat. We cannot control an all-consuming God of Fire and Thunder.

God is now preparing a holy people fashioned in brokenness to stand against the greatest onslaught by principalities and powers against humanity. We will not defeat them with their nature in us; we will not be able to stand with pride in our hearts and try to face off the king of pride.  God is far more concerned with our hearts than with our loss of face! And in His love, He is first breaking us in order to protect us. Our cry should not be, humble me O Lord, but rather, “Bend me and break me O Lord, and if You see fit, have your way in me.

Be careful in the days ahead not to follow angry leaders that disparage, destroy and curse other people with their words—stay away from them. We also must be careful not to allow pride and anger to find its way into our prayers and our decrees. God has given the decree as a tool of authority for us to use as it says in Job 22:28: “You shall decree a thing and it shall be established.” But take note, the five verses prior to this verse God describes the humility required in the preparation for the decree. Another well known instance in the use of the decree is in the book of Esther, where the King told Esther to write a decree after she informed him of the plot of enemy. The King gave Esther permission to write a decree and he would approve it, stamping it with his signet ring. If we want the King to endorse our decrees with His signet ring, our decrees must come from submission to the King and because of His direction to decree according to His will, not ours. Sometimes our emotions get all entangled in our decrees, and then there is mixture. We have not seen a lot of answers to our prayers and decrees, I believe that is partly because God is looking to see hearts that mirror His own heart, that are aligned to His own will.

We are about to embark on the greatest move of God of all time, but it will come through a people who have been broken. God said in His Word, regarding authority, that He has made us Kings and priests before him. We should then examine the life and the heart of King David, the greatest King that ever lived. King David lived before the presence of God on his face in great humility. King David was absolutely obedient to carry out the will and the purposes of God just as He had said, nothing more nothing less. God says that we are to be wise a serpent, yet harmless as doves, and that is our position on the battlefield.

How do we move in great authority while maintaining humility? We live submitted lives before God we seek him in everything, we wait for His direction and we do not move out in presumption. We do not know what God has planned for President Trump who has also been forsaken an abandoned by so many right now, he is standing with his family alone, as I was during my time, and like Jesus was on the cross. He is being crucified in the press and on the world stage. But God! This story is not finished there may yet be coming a resurrection for the president, as much corruption becomes exposed. We don’t know how soon that will be, however we will serve God, we will fight on the battlefields, but we will fight as a holy army, serving our holy God in His will and His purposes and we will trust His outcome. In regard to the prophetic, my advice would be look at their lives, and the ones where you see good holy fruit, trust them and listen to them, because God said in 2 Chronicles 20:20 believe the prophets and you will prosper. Don’t rush to judgment, and when it becomes very clear that they have missed it, forgive them!

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!

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

I Am Coming Down!

 

As I sat editing my latest book, Israel My Son, Jerusalem My Beloved, I was working on a chapter that the Lord began to highlight as pertaining to the present world situation with the American elections and the Great Reset—it was related to satan’s agenda at Babel. In it I listed four diabolical intentions made clear in this account—his intention to establish for himself a city, build a communications tower in it connected in spirit to the heavens, and to make a name for himself in the earth.

The enemy worked in collusion with a people who were unified in their intention to have dominion on Earth. The people were unified through their communion with the ruling dark forces that came in with the Fall. The enemy knew that incredible power would be amplified and unleashed through their union of purpose: As God said in Genesis 11:6, “The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them!

Satan’s strategized to establish a central base of operations to administrate his kingdom—a one world government and world order on Earth! He chose Babel to be his center. In the scriptures we are shown that Babylon became the spiritual Centre of the kingdom of darkness for all nations in the world. Today Babylon’s agenda continues to be enforced through organizations such as the World Economic Forum based out of Europe, founded by the German born Klaus Schwab, author of the Great Reset: The WEF’s mission is stated as being, “committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas” (Wikipedia). Their intent is to re-imagine the world and the present social systems functioning in the world, to implement the necessary changes for ushering their New World Order. Their next meeting in Davos Switzerland will be held in January 2021.

In the book of Daniel, chapter 7:25, satan is described as one speaking great words and attempting to change times and laws. At Babel, he devised through a demonic overreach to change times and laws outside of God’s timing. However, time belongs to God alone and nothing happens outside of His timing—satan found this out at Babel and is now about to find this out once again!  At Babel, the scriptures tell us that God came down, He destroyed the enemy’s plan, confused their communication and scattered everyone.

“But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the LORD said, “indeed the people are one (unified) and they all have one language (communication)…now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” Genesis 4:5-7 

Satan is again devising a plan to establish His kingdom—his world empire—and is attempting to come out to take his place openly in the world. According to scripture, the time will come when God does allow the world to move toward a new world order, and for a brief time, a world government ruled by satan.  This is not that time!

The Lord then took me to the account in exodus chapter 3, where the enemy had oppressed His people for four hundred years in Egypt; it says He heard their cries and said to Moses: “…I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey…” Exodus 3:7-8.

In regard to the present situation in the United States and the world plot through the Great Reset, prayers and intercession have been going up and filling up the bowls before the Throne of God. In response God is now saying, I am coming down. God’s fire is about to fall. Sometimes it takes a long time for God to move, but when He moves the fire falls accompanied by thunderings, lightnings and earthquakes (Rev. 8:5).

Recently I awakened to the words, “I hear the sound of the abundance of rain.”  As I pressed into the Lord, I heard Him say, “I am coming down with Fire and with Rain.”  The Lord then began to remind me of Elijah at Mt. Carmel.  Elijah had told the people that the God who answers by fire, He is God! No matter how hard they tried, Jezebels prophets could not produce fire. Elijah then soaked the sacrifice with water, representing cleansing and purity, and the Lord came down on the sacrifice with Fire and licked up the water.

The Lord then said to me, “Jezebel desires a seat in the White House, in the Senate, in the House of Representatives, in the Mainstream Media and on the heads of world finance. She has her prophets of Baal in all spheres, but they are powerless against Me.” He said, “I am coming down to scatter them and their evil plotting.”

We have entered the decade of the mouth where God is waiting to hear our roar, but His people and much of the world are afraid to speak, and afraid to act. Jezebel’s most powerful weapon now being utilized is fear and intimidation; a weapon she also used against Elijah causing him to run. We see her tactics of intimidation now being employed in all spheres. The enemy has been overpowering and wearing down the saints, but hope is still alive! The people of God cannot afford to succumb to fear right now, the stakes are too high.  We must make our stand on the Word of God, and the word of His prophets, to bow down, pray and intercede as Elijah did. God is faithful to His Word, His promises are sure, He will back the words of His anointed prophets.  

“LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that You are God in Israel and I am Your servant, and that I have done all these things at Your word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that You are the LORD God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again.” Then the fire of the LORD fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench.” 1 Kings 18:36-38

God SAW what they were doing at Babel and He came down, He HEARD the cries of His people in Egypt and He came down, and He ANSWERED the call of His prophet Elijah at Carmel, and He came down. The Lord is coming down into this Global catastrophe! There is yet time for repentance in His Church—those who are on the fence and choosing the ways of the world over the ways of His Word. He is saying to turn from our wicked ways and return to Him, to the ancient paths where the good way is. He is saying to repent for choosing to agree with evil and to choose this day to agree with Him! He is saying to His people as He said through Elijah:

“How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word.” 1 Kings 18:21

As He did at Babel, as He did with Moses in Egypt, and with Elijah at Carmel, God is coming down! Jezebel will be thrown down! I saw a large contingent of angels being sent out; they were pale gold in color—gold representing purity! The Lord said these angels were being sent to uncover hidden plots; they were highly skilled in exposing deeply hidden things.

I then saw a large convocation of Eagles coming to the rescue armed with the Word of God. Their words were like Holy Ghost artillery having the power to blow up Jezebel’s strongholds. These are the voices of His prophets carrying His word that will not return void. Many of these prophetic voices are women; a righteous army of women empowered by the Spirit of God to counteract Jezebel’s work, are now being released in the battle. They represent a righteous move of God among women who have the King’s ear, raised up for such a time as this. In partnership with their Mordecai counterparts, they will write and utter decrees to annihilate the enemy and hang the Hamans on their own gallows.

God is about to move, and it will come with thunderings and lightnings. He is coming with Fire and He is coming with rain to destroy the enemy’s untimely agenda. We may be in for a period of volatility and uncertainty and should be prepared spiritually to stand and not be shaken. God is saying to us, “Do not fear the fire, you will not be burned; do not fear the rain, it will not overflow you. “Stand with Me in the Fire and in the rain and you will see marvelous things. Don’t stop believing and don’t stop praying, I am coming down! Prepare for the supernatural displays of My might, gird up your loins and be ready!

“Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain… Then the hand of the LORD came upon Elijah; and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel. ” 1 Kings 18:41,46

Sound the Alarm – This Day We fight!

 

I would like to first thank and honor all the prophetic voices that have held the line to stand on the word God has released to them regarding the U.S elections, when things have appeared to go in the opposite way. Over the past few days those words have helped me to keep my faith alive as I have been silent waiting for the Lord to give me understanding of what is happening.

On the day Joe Biden was announced as the President Elect the Lord gave me a word to release. I was praying and seeking the Lord, when He said to write a word with the title, Sound the Alarm. Within an hour The Lord confirmed this in a letter I received written by Archbishop Vigano to President Trump. In it he described the features of a diabolic plan of a cabal of elites, and concluded by saying that is was surprising, that there is no one to sound the alarm! This was the confirmation!

A global plan called the Great Reset is underway. Its architect is a global élite that wants to subdue all of humanity, imposing coercive measures with which to drastically limit individual freedoms and those of entire populations. Continue to read

As a backdrop to this word I would like to share a vision I received many years ago that has defined my walk and the Ministry the Lord has given me. I saw a large and high tower stretching into the sky. Covering the tower were numerous doors and windows of all shapes and sizes—they were all open. As I stared at the tower, each one began to slam shut. At the same time, I heard the distant sound of marching from an approaching demonic army, and I received the understanding that God was concerned with the preparation and transformation of willing warriors into strong towers of refuge for the battles on the horizon.

The Lord highlighted the importance of closing these gates and doors that were providing access to the enemy an important part of the preparation for the battles to prepare the way for the Return of the King. At that time the Lord impressed upon me to watch the movie The Return of the King, in The Lord of the Ring series. As I watched, the Lord began to highlight the principles of intercession, intelligence gathering, and tactics of warfare needed to defeat the agenda of the demonic forces vying for world dominion.

This movie reveals a sweeping panorama of the apocalyptic battle between demonic forces and an alliance of various armies united in light of an impending overthrow. However, the allied forces prevailed, paving the way for the King to return to his throne where He received his bride and gave honor to all those who fought to defend freedom. A few days before the election the Lord instructed me to once again watch the movie, which I did. At the time when I had first watched it, God opened up the book of Joel chapter two, revealing that the army of verses 1-11 represented the demonic army in the movie:

Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming. It is close at hand—a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness. Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army comes, such as never was in ancient times nor ever will be in ages to come. Before them fire devours, behind them a flame blazes. Before them the land is like the garden of Eden, behind them, a desert waste—nothing escapes them. Joel 1:3

The fulfillment of this passage in Joel awaits a future day, the Day of the Lord, when the world will be called to account—this is not that day! However, there will be many such battles to be fought leading up to that day, and I believe the Lord is now saying that we are presently in such a battle. The stakes in this present battle are extremely high, as a loss could accelerate the Day of the Lord.

The Great Reset Archbishop Vigano referred was designed and crafted by the World Economic Forum, in line with the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Plan and Agenda 201. Through these plans the underlying goals are the protections of the Earth and world population, however benevolent their intentions may appear, the means they intend to employ to combat the problems the World may face in the future, have sinister undertones, and are void of any acknowledgment of the providence of God over humanity and the earth.

President Trump is presently the only hindrance in the way of their purposes being fulfilled, and therefore he must be removed at all costs! Every force available is therefore in collusion and being utilized to remove him, hence this election debacle. If these elites have their way these are the stakes before us and it includes all nation of the world not only America:

  • The LGBTQ agenda will be accelerated to a level that inflicts horrific harm on society and the children of the world. In answer to a question on rights for transgender children Joe Biden said publicly, “We will change the laws!”
  • Christianity will be discouraged; Christians will be persecuted, Churches shut down and the Bible mocked.
  • An increase in the promotion of euthanasia  and assisted suicide, with the eventual availability for all ages who qualify as young as twelve; this is already happening in the Netherlands.
  • The promotion of the killing of babies up to nine months in the womb and even after its born.
  • There will be a push for the diminishing of America as a restraining force in the world, this will be implemented by defunding the military and weakening the nation, by opening the borders to immigrants of all nations, the implementation of socialistic and Marxists policies, declaration of the constitution as outdated for the times, packing the court with liberal judges. Reducing America’s influence on the world stage as a One World government is presented to maintain peace, equity.
  • The introduction of draconian measures to limit the freedoms and rights of people, using pandemics and Lockdowns to continue to control people and world populations.
  • Mandatory vaccinations will become the only method to be able to function freely in society and to be able to purchase goods.

We are presently in the throes of a demonic overreach, where these forces are attempting to change times and laws as stated in Daniel 7. The day may come where they are allowed to do this, but this is not that day!

I sensed in my spirit as I write this, an urgency from God to SOUND THE ALARM! The Media do not get determine who is president, there are thousands of votes still not counted, and the election is being contested! I don’t believe it is a coincidence that God has given me the understanding of this word the day Joe Biden has been falsely declared the winner! President trump has just put out a statement saying:

“The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.”

If President Trump has been chosen to lead in this fight, and God is backing him, and if he is not backing down and continues to fight, intercessors must also not back down, and continue to fight! The fight is not over! In The Return of the King, when it seemed that all hope was gone, and they were about to lose the battle, as they were being overrun by the enemy, troops suddenly arrived! A large contingent of forces arrived having received the call for help.

We have now entered a Day that demands that a courageous people arise and shine, who fearlessly take a stand for the purposes of the King, who hold to the Word of God and defend liberty, goodness and righteousness—regardless of the cost! Amidst gross darkness covering the Earth they will shine with the Glory of God that rests upon them! Joel 2 also speaks of the Lord’s Holy army who arise in this hour:

“And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. Joel 2:28

God is saying to SOUND THE ALARM in light of the enemy’s agenda and the high stakes of this battle:

“Blow the trumpet in Zion, declare a holy fast, call a sacred assembly. Gather the people, consecrate the assembly; bring together the elders, gather the children, those nursing at the breast. Let the bridegroom leave his room and the bride her chamber…”

Let us unite and stand with the President as He fights for America, for the world and for the purposes of God. I have chosen to step out in faith to bring this word, as I fully believe it is not time for the devil’s agenda, this is not that day! Donald Trump still has much to do on behalf of the Kingdom of God! In the Return of the King, In the face of the greatest battle they would yet face, at the head of his troops the king rallied them to the fight and said, as God would now also say to us:

“A day may come when the courage of Men fails, when we forsake our friends, and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day.” “An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the Age of Men comes crashing down, but it is not this day! This day we fight!” By all that you hold dear on this Earth, I bid you stand!

At the conclusion of the movie the rightful king WAS RETURNED to his throne; in this time and in this battle THAT KING IN DONALD TRUMP!

In response to the cry of the people, God declares in Joel 2:20:

“I will drive the northern horde far from you, pushing it into a parched and barren land… And its stench will go up; its smell will rise.” Surely he has done great things! Do not be afraid, land of Judah; be glad and rejoice. Surely the LORD has done great things!

Toward the end of the battle in the movie , a convocation of eagles were suddenly released to turn the battle. I believe they represent the prophetic word of the Lord now being released through His prophets to seal the victory of the battle. God is moving and will back the word of His prophets!

Hold your Ground, Hold your Ground, Sons of God! Stand and see the salvation of God!

 

A Sword Poised to Strike!

Over these past months the words I have received from the Lord, I have seen through the lens of the season of war we have now entered. The Lord is highlighting the need to courageously address present realities that necessitates having a righteous army prepared for the challenges of the battles we will face …that we may become an overcoming army that attains to victory in the Lord.  Offering platitudes that give a false sense that all is well, I believe would not be helpful to anyone right now. In seeking the Lord regarding the contrast between the revelations given of glory, power, and authority on one hand, with discipline on the other, I sensed the Lord saying, “I want you to see and understand both sides of the sword that is poised to strike.” Over many days, I have been hearing in my spirit the words overthrow, overthrow, I knew this was in Ezekiel 21 where a few things began to jump out to me:

 “Son of man, prophesy and say, ‘Thus says the LORD!’ Say: ‘A sword, a sword is sharpened and also polished! V. 9

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, mark out two roads for the sword of the king of Babylon to take, both starting from the same country…  For the king of Babylon will stop at the fork in the road, at the junction of the two roads, to seek an omen: He will cast lots with arrows, he will consult his idols…” V.19,21 (this is divination)

“Overthrown, overthrown, I will make it overthrown! It shall be no longer,until He comes whose right it is, And I will give itto Him.” V. 27

Most of the words that I write are didactic in nature, as my desire is to always bring foundation, scope and understanding to the revelations given. This is the understanding I received: Ezekiel chapter 21 is a depiction of the present state of the house of God and discipline is decreed.  The Bible does declare that judgment begins at the house of God, nonetheless, there has been much repentance taking place and God has heard the cries of the intercessors, and victory is assured! Even so, there is a cleansing coming to the House of God, through the judgment brought on the world by the king of Babylon that is heading our way! He is at the fork in the road using divination and is conspiring with those in agreement with him.

Chapter 21 was the fate determined for the land of Israel and the people of God. Israel had come to a time in their history when rebellion and sin had overtaken the land and the House of God, as it now has in ours—where saints are calling what is evil good, and what is good evil! With great longsuffering and patience God had given much time for repentance and a change of heart. Chapter 22:26-30 revealed the condition of God’s House.

“Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made knownthe difference between the unclean and the clean; and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them. Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain… verse 20 continues:

So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.

God is looking for men and women, who reject rebellion and resisting His ways; those who can stand on behalf of the land and His House that He should not destroy it—as He says in His Word rebellion is witchcraft, and we cannot fight witchcraft in the same spirit (1 Sam. 15:23). God is presently looking for holy negotiators who carry His heart as Moses did, who will reason with Him why He should not do this.  He is looking for those who have power at His Throne to advocate on behalf of the land.  He is looking for those willing to lay down their lives, to war on behalf of the people and the land. He is looking for those who will come boldly behind the veil to reason with Him! History is calling for those who will move the heart of God and turn the tide. This is a critical time of history when creation is groaning for the sons of God to arise to their call! Who will answer the call?

To Overthrow or Be Overthrown!

In the United States, there are those who have plotted and established a commission to enact the 25th amendment to remove a sitting president. Because this legislation was previously prepared, I believe their intention was to use it on Donald Trump after He contracted the Coronavirus—not understanding that God would raise him up in four days, stronger than before! It then suddenly dawned on me that I had been hearing the words overthrow, overthrow for four or five days prior to this announcement on the news. The word overthrow is a revelation from God of how high the stakes are, and that we are not to take any of it lightly.

Overthrow means: To bring about the downfall, destruction, or ending of, especially by force or concerted action: a plot to overthrow the government (Free Dictionary)

I also discovered that the word overthrow also means a coup!

Coups d’état; is an ousting, overthrow, takeover, it is the removal of an existing government from power, usually through violent means. (Wikipedia)

It has also been factually revealed that the democrats have been holding war games, devising various plots for every possible scenario of the election. Their ultimate aim is to overthrow Donald Trump in this election, at all costs!  As a Canadian, some may be wondering why I am so focused on Donald Trump, American politics and the elections. It is extremely important for Christians of all nations to understand that America is the stronghold the dragon must take down in order to take control of the world. America is the centre of the battle, and Donald Trump is the man standing in the way of their unfolding plan for world dominion. A group called the Disruption Project has issued a manifesto calling for violence whether Donald Trump wins or not.  As the President and Commander in Chief of the battle, Trump is empowered and protected by God, is backed by heaven, and needs to now be undergirded in prayer by the intercession of the saints worldwide.

It is important to now have Kingdom perspective! The saints are being called to face off a demonic force that is presently flexing its muscles and rising in power and strength, supported by the agreement of the world. For many decades since WWII, these forces have been waiting for a generation to pass, for the moment to make their move. Their target is Donald Trump, and the people of God. Their agenda is to take down lawful governments and the old order, and through chaos, establish Global governance in the Earth. During this volatile time, we must pray, fight and resist their efforts. However, first and foremost, we must trust God in the way He chooses to work, and not be discouraged by what we may witness (Please see my last word).

Jesus made the statement that the Gates of Hell would not prevail over His Ekklesia (Matt. 16:18).  The word prevail means to triumph or have victory over another, therefore, Jesus’ promise to us is that the enemy would not and even could not, triumph and have victory over the determined will of God.  The Church of God, endowed with His strength and His power, was created to withstand and to prevail over the enemies of God.  Yet, the word of God also declares that false prophets and false christs would deceive, if possible, even the elect (Matt. 24:24). It also reveals in the Book of Daniel that the beast making war with the saints, was prevailing against them (Dan. 7:21). Is this a contradiction? The question that arises is, do we want to prevail or be prevailed against, to overthrow or be overthrown. What will it be?

Under Authority!

Let’s dig into what it means for the saints to prevail, to triumph, and to be triumphant warriors? I believe it means far more than just showing up, even though that is good, or fighting in our own will and strength!  As the spirit of lawlessness and rebellion roams the streets of our cities, it searches out and finds our weaknesses, and will easily entrap the independent and the rebellious in heart. There is something to say for those who, when faced with tribulation or dire circumstances make the choice to stand together as one, supporting each another and their leaders. In unity of Spirit they face off the enemy and ward off trouble. It is in union as a Body, that we win the battles and have power to overcome.

In a time when it is so critical to know and be moving in our God given authority, many still don’t understand the need to be under authority, in order to be moving in authority. Many love to be in authority over others, but struggle with the idea of being submitted to another.  Until this dynamic is tested in relationships, some remain blinded to the fact that they actually resist leadership.

The people of God have found themselves in a conundrum since the introduction of the Coronavirus. Because of this virus everyone was placed in a state of lockdown during the first few months of its spread, with some still in various stages of lock down in many states and countries.  God used this time for good on many fronts: to awaken His people from slumber, to draw us closer to Himself, and to extend the Church’s influence Globally through technology. However, the enemy has used the situation primarily to separate us from each other, to divide us on issues, and to remove us from functioning as a body with the guidance of our leaders. The enemy fully understands that it is only in unity that we stand as a force, having the impact to breakthrough and overcome!  An army functions in order and in lines of authority. With faith and a humility that impressed Jesus, the centurion fully understood this principle as himself a Leader in the army! He said:

“Lord, don’t trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, “I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.” Luke 7:6-9

Go Up & Possess!

F.B. Meyer once said: “The Land was Israel’s by deed, but Israel had to go up and possess it!” We have entered a season of war, a time to go to war for the land! It is also time for us to wake up to the reality of the dimension of extreme demonic warfare we are being called to and take our place without fear!  It is a time that calls for and will see miracles, as the supernatural power of God is released to turn the tide.

The saints of God are all together facing the greatest battle of the ages. As I said in my last word, “Brace Yourselves!” what is coming down the pike may be so potent, that we need to be quickly transformed into unshakeable pillars of the faith. This will require choosing the place of consecration, of obedience to be under authority, and to be in union with our local spiritual family and leaders. These are the ones we reach out to in times of need and trouble. God puts us in families to take care of each other. I believe in this time, God is admonishing us to stay connected to our spiritual families, and if you don’t have one, find one quickly and get built in and submitted.

It is important for leaders to find a way to become unified as a Body, and to work together. The overthrow can go either way depending on the stance that we choose to take! I personally believe we will press through and breakthrough, but it will not be without a fight!  Donald Trump is a great example to the Body of Christ of prospering under persecution—this, because God is on the throne, He is supernatural, powerful and mighty to save!

We must fight the fear that wants to paralyze and cause panic! God believes in you! He picked you for this moment. History is counting on you to take the place reserved for you. This is the watch we have been assigned to and Christ is the Captain of the armies leading us into battle. Let us rise up now in faith and join Him in the overthrow of the enemies of God!

Revelation 19:12-16: “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on himwascalled Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.  Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”

Brace Yourselves!

I would like to preface this word that comes as a warning, by saying that God is powerfully at work to bring forth something marvellous in the world! The darkness and the chaos are not the end of it and the devil does not have the last say; he is limited in what he can do even though it may appear that he has free reign right now.  Daniel said in chapter 7:25, that the devil’s intention is to change times and laws, however it is God alone who controls times and seasons. Daniel 2:20-22 says:

“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.:

Over these Feast days we are presently in, beginning withRosh Hashanah, there has been much activity in the spiritual realms setting the stage for the beginning of a significant Move of God. Over Rosh Hashanah Ruth Bader Ginsberg died; seven days prior to her death, the Lord asked one of His prophetic voices Munday Martin to pray for her. Over the following weekend marked by Yom Kippur, Donald Trump appoints Amy Coney Barret to fill her vacant seat, then as we approached the weekend of the Feast of Tabernacles, Donald Trump tests positive for the Coronavirus.  What does this all mean?  It means God has arisen with the intent to scatter His enemies. It means He is moving and arising now to answer the prayers of the saints.

In the aftermath of Donald Trump’s positive test, the Lord began to show me certain things that would now be coming into play as a result. First, God is amplifying the distinction between darkness and light; this is evidenced in the rising level of the ugly demonic hatred targeting the President of the United States, revealed in the words of all those who wish him death. The evil in the heart of man is bubbling up to the surface and being revealed for all to see. The line between good and evil is becoming more distinct with each passing day.

Our Words Matter

The second thing God highlighted was that there are consequences to the words being spoken. The scriptures tell us that by our words we will be justified and by our words we will be condemned. God’s Word and His precepts function as laws in the universe and cannot be revoked by man, and when activated, come with consequences. Galatians 6:7 declares: “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; forwhatevera man sows, that he will also reap.”

Whatevergood or evil, a man sows he shall reap—this is an established law of God. It also says in Matthew 7:2 that in the same measure you mete out judgment, it will be measured back to you. Knowing and understanding the truth of this Word, in 2016, prior to the election, after the tapes were revealed, I became deeply concerned by the amount of people who were angrily judging Donald Trump. I was concerned because I knew that those who judged him would reap the consequences of the exposure of sins in their own lives. Shortly after, that is exactly what happened, as numerous senators, government leaders, Hollywood celebrities and prominent people began to be exposed for sexual sin and the MeToo movement began. The consequence of this continues to this day, as every type of sexual sin is being exposed and even resulting in numerous arrests.

Even so, I am presently even more concerned as so many have used their voices to wish harm and even death on the President of the United States, blind to the fact that this is an open invitation for oppressing demons to now begin to bring sickness and death into many lives. With their own mouths they are summoning the spirit of death.To help counteract this, it is now important for the Church to stand in the gap, release forgiveness, cry out for mercy and repent on behalf of these people.

God Will Get The Glory!

In regard to President Trump positive test, and the upcoming election, God has used it for good on many front’s, one is to endear him to the hearts of the people, He is also removing the administration’s strength to bring forth a victory.  A win for the Trump administration will not be seen as a result of brilliant strategy, energy, charisma or personality. When Donald Trump wins, God will receive all the Glory, as it will be seen as a miraculous win; no one will be able to understand or point to anything that brought it about.

When Gideon was going to war against the much stronger Midianites, God reduced their army from 22,000 to 300 men, thereby removing the possibility for Israel to boast and say, their own strength had done it! God is ensuring that that victory will be seen as only from Him. The world will see God move to bless and they will fear, as it says in psalm 67:7, “God shall bless us, and all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.”  

In the same way, God has determined that there will be victory in the elections, that the Body of Christ will begin to cross over with mighty signs and wonders, and He alone will be lifted up and Glorified before all.

“Lift your rods and shout” God says, “As this battle belongs to Me and I alone will be exalted. Donald Trump has served My purposes and My will and he is My son, but I am taking over to bring forth My will, as it will not be by might nor by power, or by any natural strength or charisma, but victory will be by My Spirit alone. I alone will be exalted in the earth.”

The Bad Roots Must be Removed!

God has great things prepared for His people and the world for this decade, but before it can be released, He must remove the bad roots. God highlighted this in a memory of an incident with my son Jesse when he was just two years old. One day I noticed a sore on his thigh that then turned into an ugly boil. I was told to put heat on it, and that would work to draw out the infection and bring it to a head. When the day came where it appeared that it was ready to burst, I prepared to extract the infection.  As a mother I was very nervous as I knew it would be a very painful procedure. I took a deep breath and pressed to get the infected pus out. He immediately began to scream and looked at me with horror.  I felt so terrible but had to press again to make sure everything was out, I then cleaned and bandaged it.

I then heard The Lord say: “Pain is coming!” Just as the human body must expel all toxins, bacteria and infection to remain healthy, this principal works in every sphere, and also in the spiritual Body of Christ—the hidden infection must be uncovered and removed. I heard the Lord say: “The signs of the deep infection that exists in the world, and even My Body is being exposed! The current conditions seen in the rebellion, the lawlessness, ugly violence and deep-rooted anger, are all evidence of this putrid oozing of the defiled infection of darkness.

We are presently observing this eruption over all the Earth, on our streets and in dishonest governments—the corruption of darkness has surfaced. Things hidden for ages are coming under the rays of God’s sunlight. The devil’s agenda is being exposed for all to see. The things that have been simmering underground, under the surface, have been erupting in the earth. God is doing this! He is bringing things to a head and drawing the defilement from hiddenness to the surface. I believe God is now saying, it will be purged, He is about to bring the needed pressure to extract the infection. God began to highlight Isaiah chapter 28 to me.

In verse 15 God speaks to the evil. “You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.”

However God has a plan and He says in verse 16: “So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic.”

God is saying to us, “Do not fear the pain, it must come. It must come because I love you. It must come because if it is not removed, it will destroy you. For you have answered My Word to humble yourselves, to pray and seek My face, that I may heal your land, and I am moving to answer this prayer. In order to bring the healing, I must first remove the infection. I am applying the heat and drawing out the impurity, causing the infection to erupt, in order that I may cleanse and heal the wound. Never forget My Love for you! Trust that My ways are higher and that they work!

Isaiah 28:17-19, He says to the enemy: “I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line; hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie, and water will overflow your hiding place. Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand. When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it. As often as it comes it will carry you away; morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through.”

After the infection is removed, health and healing will come. God is moving to set the stage for a new era of healing to the planet, that will come as the Holy Spirit sweeps the defilement away, ushering in a season of marvel and delight. Some pain will come! Jesus endured the pain for the Joy that was set before Him!  The Harvest is the reward of His suffering, and our delight must be to first know Him in His suffering, and then in the power of His resurrection that releases the Harvest. The people of God will be entering a season of resurrection power with the passing of this Feast of Tabernacles. This is the time, in the midst of turmoil for the Body of Christ to arise in strength and courage, and shine in the darkness.

We will see God move in mighty ways to set things in order as He is now moving to do in the Supreme court.  We must trust God, rather than cower in fear; Take hold of His hand and join Him in His great work! He is moving across the Earth to apply the necessary heat to draw out the infection. When heat is applied to an infection it draws out the antibodies that fight the infection, in the spirit, this is the work of the intercessors who gather to fight the infection in His power and will, to declare and decree His Word! If the pressure to remove the infection is applied too early, it will spread the infection and make things dangerously worse.  This principle is clear in the parable of the wheat and tares, the timing to remove the tares was important so as not to harm the wheat. So, it is important to trust God with the timing to apply the pressure, the cleansing and the healing, He is doing an unusual work in the earth.

Isaiah 28:21 “The LORD will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim, he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon—to do his work, his strange work, and perform his task, his alien (unusual) task.”

The Lord is saying to us: “What you see is My strange and unusual work that will bring in the Harvest and will usher in a season of healing, refreshing and strength. I am doing this unusual work in My House and in the land. Brace yourselves and be prepared for what will come, what must come My people, when the scourge passes over.”

In regard to the dream he had, I did hear a Pastor make the statement, Brace yourself, Brace yourself, and wasn’t sure if I was being influenced by hearing that until I heard God say to check the definition of the word. The word brace means: to press your body firmly against something to stay balanced or standing; to prepare for something difficult or unpleasant; to be strong and courageous.

To be strong and courageous is the admonition given to Joshua by God six times, to prepare him for the war to take the Promised Land! During these troubling times, if we press against Jesus and lean in on our Beloved, we will stand strong in Him through anything that may come! After the turmoil, the storms will settle, ushering in a new day.

This principle can also be seen at the Passover when God told His people to stay in their homes until the spirit of death had passed over!  In Isaiah 26:20 God told His people to go in their rooms until the judgment had passed, “Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.’

I also heard God make the statement, “Get ready as things were coming down the pike!” I was troubled about bringing this word as I did not want people to fear, especially when they serve such a mighty God, I also wanted to be sure that it was God. Again, I heard Him say check the definition of the phrase, as I realized that I did not really know what it meant and didn’t even know what a pike was.

I found that “Pike” is short for turnpike and the phrase refers metaphorically to something coming from further along the road. (Merriam Webster) It carries the image of something getting bigger as it moves toward us; something going to happen sometime soon.

I will close with Isaiah 28:5-6 which says, “In that day the LORD Almighty will be a glorious crown, a beautiful wreath for the remnant of his people. He will be a spirit of justice to the one who sits in judgment, a source of strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.”

If you are prone to fear, please don’t be afraid! We serve an awesome wonderful and great God and Father who watches over us through all things!

Three Passovers

 

Over the recent week of Passover, and the week leading up to it, there was a great prophetic emphasis on the time of Israel’s first Passover in Egypt. This was much more than just a similarity to the events we are living through now in the world—with the pestilence, God’s instruction to put the blood on the doorpost of our hearts, stay inside our homes and get close to Him, until the plague passes over. God is getting the world’s attention, melting our hearts and calling the Church into a time of deep consecration.

I attended one of the corporate Zoom meetings on which thousands participated from the nations of the world; there was such an honoring among the leaders and a sweet sense of God’s Presence over it all… that moved you to tears. 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.

The theme for me that week was union, communion, and the sovereignty of God over the Jewish Passover out of Egypt. However, we should note that we are not passing over from Egypt into the wilderness. This was the week of our second of three Prayer Thrusts God instructed us to have, which occurred on Good Friday.  As it turns out, this day fell on the evening of the third day from Passover—the time of resurrection!

That day I kept getting a niggling thought about ANOTHER PASSOVER but wasn’t clear what God was saying. God then began to speak to me about this other Passover—a second Passover with great implication! This became the theme of our 2nd Prayer Thrust. When the children of Israel were preparing to cross over the Jordan into the Promised Land, God instructed them to follow the Ark, as they had not passed this way before!  This is a present word for us today as we are moving in uncharted territory; all that we can do, and all that God would have us do, is cling to His Presence and listen to the Apostolic, Prophetic leaders who carry His Presence.

During the wilderness season, many had died because of disobedience. God was waiting for a new generation who knew how to follow Him and obey His instructions. A new breed had arisen in the wilderness whose obedience had been made complete. They had become the Army of the Lord who would cross-over into the Promised Land corporately as a people.

However, upon their entry into the Promised Land, God again put them into a lockdown. Those who had not been circumcised in the wilderness, had to be circumcised. They remained together in the camp, while they were healing, in a weakened, helpless state in the midst of enemy territory. God is able to do much in our hearts during these times of shutdown when we are still and quiet before Him—it is the grand pause or rest before the music re-starts.

Israel remained in their camps until they were healed! They were about to go to war for the Promise and God’s required preparation was heart consecration. This is as it is today, our hearts are being circumcised! The knife is being put to our flesh and our agendas founded upon our good ideas. Many have conformed to the world’s standards rather than conformed to Christ. After, He declared to them, as He is now saying to us, “Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you” (Josh. 5:9).

On the 14th day of the first month as instructed by the Lord, they held the Passover Feast—their first Passover in the Promised Land. The Passover out of Egypt and the Passover in the Promised Land are divinely connected as the second Passover completes the first—out of slavery into the promises and the removal of the reproach of slavery.

After their time of consecration, and the day after the Passover, something very substantial happened, THEY ATE OF THE PRODUCE OF THE LAND FOR THE FIRST TIME—the manna had stopped, THEY HAD ENTERED A NEW SEASON OF LIFE!  These are all markers for us to take note of as we become a new wineskin, made ready for new wine, and prepared to move out! As they prepared themselves for war, the crowning event then took place; Joshua had an encounter with a MAN.  Joshua asked Him if He was for them or for the enemy; the MAN answered:

“Neither,” he replied, “but as Commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.” Joshua 5:14

The LORD came to lead them in War; He made it known and very clear that He was there to establish God’s will not man’s.  As I took communion the morning of our Prayer Thrust, I saw a vision of the Commander of the armies of God in full armor and saw myself kneel before him.

In a previous word I wrote, I referred to the THE SILENCE of the marching around the city of Jericho and compared it to the stillness of the lockdown. However, on the seventh day they marched Seven times around the city, then blew their shofars; then all shouted as the wall collapsed before them. Joshua said to them, “Shout for the Lord has given you the city.”

Over the following week I began to think about our 3rd Prayer Thrust and what God would have to say about it.  The date was to be on May 8th, the dates for all three had been set from early February.  The last was to be in May as God had said to me from January 2019 that May was going to be significant…to watch for May.  As I pondered these things, I felt God said to check the date, May 8th on the Jewish Calendar.  I was surprised and confused when I saw that it said Pesach—Passover.  God was revealing another noteworthy Passover to me. This one is based on the account in Numbers chapter 9:1-2

“The LORD spoke to Moses in the Desert of Sinai in the first month of the second year after they came out of Egypt. He said, “Have the Israelites celebrate the Passover at the appointed time” Numbers 9:1-2

It was one year after the Exodus from Egypt, and there were some who could not participate in this Passover Feast because they were unclean for various reasons, and could not keep God’s regulations. Moses inquired of the Lord for them and God answered:

“…they are still to celebrate the LORD’S Passover, but they are to do it on the fourteenth day of the second month at twilight. They are to eat the lamb, together with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.” Numbers 9:11-12

God mercifully allowed these to hold the Feast in the second month instead of the first. This Passover Feast became known as the second chance Passover. According to Jewish writings, “The day represented by the “second chance” achieved by the power of teshuvah, repentance and “return.” (Chabad).

The second chance Passover falls on our third Prayer Thrust on May 8th.  I don’t think any of this is a coincidence, and fully believe that God is mercifully allowing time for those who have not understood, and have not taken this time apart to consecrate themselves to Him at a deeper level.  He is giving another chance and another opportunity to everyone to get their hearts right before God. As God said in Isaiah 42, He has been silent for a long time, but now He has stirred Himself. He has arisen and is getting ready to move out with the Armies of God to take the promised land and gather His Harvest.  It’s time to blow the shofars and to shout! In Isaiah 49:24, God asks and answers the question:

“Can plunder be taken from warriors or captives from the fierce?  But God says, Yes, captives can be taken from warriors and plunder from the fierce.”

It’s time to go after the captives and take plunder from the enemy!

I BELIEVE IT’S TIME TO SHOUT! GOD WANTS HIS HARVEST

SHOUT, “LET MY PEOPLE GO!”

SHOUT FOR YOUR NATIONS TO BE RELEASED TO ITS DESTINY

SHOUT FOR YOUR NATIONS TO BE RELEASED FROM THE GRIP OF THE ENEMY

SHOUT FOR YOUR NATION TO BE RELEASED FROM THE COVID 19

SHOUT FOR THE ENEMY TO FLEE BEFORE YOU BECAUSE THE ARMIES OF GOD ARE ON THE MOVE!

The fear of God is upon the people and the enemies of God, so shout!

(Our Prayer Thrust will  be posted on Facebook Live on May 8th at 7 pm on my pageFaith Marie Baczko.We will also post a live meeting on Friday the 17th  at 7 pm where I will share an important follow up revelation on this word )

THE BIG RESET!

 

GOOD NEWS! God has checkmated the enemy’s move in the present coronavirus crisis. The enemy’s plan was to release calamity on the earth, but God strategically incorporated this virus in His plan to bring forth transformation in the world!  The people of God have been in prayer, intercession and expectation for a big move of God for years, and God has now answered with the BIG RESET—the precursor to a great awakening and a great in-gathering of souls into the Kingdom of God. The world was going off the rails, on a trajectory toward destruction, running to and fro as the bible predicted in the book of Daniel. The emotional temperature in the world was at an ugly boiling point as the gods of this world gained in sphere and power. But God! God is using what the enemy planned for evil as a GLOBAL RESET.

In the present Global shutdown, bars have closed, sports has shut down, Disney world, recreation and entertainment has shut down; as a result, families are at home talking and eating together; people are quiet, the world is quiet, children are home safe, attitudes are changing, people are having compassion on others, we are coming together in a unity of heart and mind and people are praying and looking to God for answers. We are lovingly caught in the captivity of the Lord and the enemy is losing big time!!  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 pant…I 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.

The entire chapter of Hebrew 12 is well worth studying at this time; in it God tells us not to take it lightly when we are disciplined by Him or grow weary under it—He disciplines those He loves as any loving father would. In verses 26-29, God warned us that He would shake everything that could be shaken; but we must take note His reasoning—it is for the removal of things that can be shaken, in order that the things that cannot be shaken might remain; that we may offer to Him acceptable worship with reverence and awe—He is a Consuming Fire and He will consume the sin out of our lives and ultimately out of the world!

God will be releasing prayer strategies to His people to bring us through this time—the term prayer strategy is simply the direction of how often to meet, in what manner we are to meet, who we are to meet with and the logistics of that, the theme of intercession, the way you we are to pray, whether in tongues or with revelation or both. This may be accompanied by symbolic action He may ask you to do; this may seem like something silly to you but when done in obedience carries great power. He may give specific songs to worship to, some with banners or in dance and it may be accompanied by a time of fasting or not.

The Lord has given us a strategy to have three prayer thrusts once a month until May (See related word). Considering what is happening in the world at first I didn’t think this was enough. As I am now forced to be at home, there is a quietness and a stillness in the atmosphere, and I believe that is by God’s design. God has been highlighting to me a principle in the strategy given to Joshua for Jericho. They had to march around the city in silence for seven days. On the seventh day they marched seven times then blew the trumpets. It seemed like a crazy thing to do, but they did it in obedience, power was released, and the walls fell! The part He is highlighting to me was the silence—they had to march in silence.

God is saying that as we wait before Him in quietness and in stillness, we are building up spiritual dunamis energy—an internal combustion that will explode and empower His move to BREAK OUT AND LAUNCH! I checked what internal combustion meant and found that: Internal-combustion engines are the most widely used power-generating devices currently in existence. It works by raising the temperature of a gas which then increases the pressure that makes it expand and blow. As we are still before the LORD, corporately waiting on the Him during this time, in fasting and in prayer, we are building up a corporate internal combustion in the Body of Christ that will break us out into the greatest move of God of all time. There were a few words that I wrote last year in which God said to tell them, “Ready or not here I come!”  I believe that time has come!

Understanding Spiritual Warfare

During these times it is important to know how to pray. Its time to fight God’s way! There can be much misconception when it comes to spiritual realities. Greater knowledge and understanding of spiritual warfare are important features of the Christian walk that I believe God is saying is presently needed. My last article touched on the aspect of it that relates to heart issues, as all victory is founded on the principle in Jesus’ words, the prince of this world comes but he has nothing in Me! The enemy could find no place of agreement in Christ, and the same must be for us. The Lord has continued to put an urgency in my heart to write on this subject to equip His people for the times.

The Bible speaks much about this warfare and is our source for all understanding of the subject.  The scriptures refer to the Lord as The Lord of hosts two hundred and thirty-five times! The word hosts mean armies—He is the Lord of armies, both in Heaven and on earth. We were enlisted in the army of God when we got saved, and have a fierce enemy, whether we understood that or not.

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Ephesians 6:13 

At the core of spiritual warfare is understanding our identity as a son or daughter of God and standing in it. There are those who are called to lifestyle of prayer and have been given a strong gift in intercession, however all God’s people are called to prayer and live within this spiritual dynamic. Everyone is a part of the war weather they participate or not. Because we live in this atmosphere of warfare, to have a grasp of this subject is to everyone’s advantage.

Contrary to what some may think, spiritual warfare has some very basic Christian principles I would like to highlight. First, we begin by noting that the Bible is founded on the spiritual dynamic that God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit (Jn. 4:24). Angels are spiritual beings that serve God. Satan is a created spiritual being—an archangel that fell and is now the archenemy of God, and all humanity. Demons are spiritual beings that serve the devil and do his bidding, they hate humanity and their job description is to steal, kill and destroy every good thing God intends for His people and the world. The evidence of their activity can be seen in every sphere of society and they are especially targeting the children. It is therefore very important for every family to have a prayer strategy and teach the children to how to pray. Children should be secured in the truth of Jesus, and His great love and power toward them!

Do Demons have Power?

Every spiritual and physical entity is created and subject to the full sovereignty of God.  These created beings have power for two reasons: the first is that as God ordained judgment on all rebellion and disobedience from the very beginning, and demons have legal right to function in this environment of sin (Deut. 28). However, God has given humanity the right to choose their own course, “…I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life…” (Deut. 30:19)

The second reason they appear to have power is that within the born again dynamic, though our spirits are fully regenerated, the Holy Spirit, takes the land of our souls through the process of sanctification and cleansing in order to remove all worldly mind-sets, demonic strongholds, effects of past trauma and ungodly beliefs.  Even as Christ has purchased the whole person with His blood, and owns us fully, we may not have given Him all our allegiance. He has given all of Himself, but He does not necessarily receive all of us! God also uses the process of sanctification or heart cleansing to train and build our spiritual muscles of faith in the understanding of His great power over all things, and as a consequence, our great authority in Him as sons of God (Col. 2:9-11).  During this process we learn to fight, we overcome the enemy of our souls and are healed—all oppression is driven from the land of our souls as we are continually filled by the Holy Spirit in greater and greater measure, as He occupies more of  us. Israel’s journey to the Promised land through the wilderness gives us a picture of this process—there they were built up in faith and learned to fight!They entered the Promised land as warriors with the Shout of a King amongst them!

What does Spiritual Warfare Entail?

Spiritual warfare is very different than warfare in the natural. Firstly, as Ephesians 6 stated our fight is with spiritual forces and not with people, and the weapons we fight with are not of this world—they are far more powerful!

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-6

The battleground ultimately is for the mind of man—for who we will serve and give our allegiance to.  When our obedience is complete and the Lordship of Christ is firmly established in our lives, we have great authority to demolish the enemy’s plans and schemes in our personal lives. And having overcome with our personal issues we can stand in a posture of obedience, in strength, in a corporate setting, to fight for our communities, cities and our nations. The principles for corporate warfare are the same for our personal lives so let’s look at the practicalities.

Practicalities of Corporate Warfare.

Effective warfare is not a matter of semantics or the tonality of our voice—whether we are loud or soft spoken, as we are all unique in our gift. It is not about how great we can pray, but rather about functioning, not in the flesh, but under the anointing of a humble, surrendered heart. I was once in a prayer meeting sitting beside a very soft spoken lady who was praying very quietly, as she prayed God showed me a picture of her in the spirit—it was as if she had a megaphone blasting out her prayer into the spiritual realm…the point being, no one is disqualified.  There are certain key features or spiritual weapons God has given us in our warfare to overcome the kingdom of darkness, that when applied in the dynamic God intended, will always take down the enemy, these are:

Union: The word declares that where we have union, the commanded blessing of God is then released (Ps.133). The word command is tsavah and means to send with a charge, give a command, set in order or send with a messenger. This makes it clear that unity is vital to effective warfare. There is a mystery in the principle of union and agreement that when in place, works to produce an explosion of dunamis supernatural power, having the potential to produce God-sized possibilities.   The shortest and most memorable word God has given me came to me in capital letters, He said: AGREE WITH ME!  When we agree with Him corporately, we are in union with each other and with Him—this dynamic produces dunamis power. The corporate sound that is released in this setting is a breaker sound that demolishes strongholds.

Faith: The word of God declares that faith is the victory that overcomes the world, that our fight is the fight of faith; that we have access by faith, we are strengthened by faith, the promise comes by faith. We are admonished to build up our faith as we are protected and shielded by faith. Ephesians 4:13 tells us that we are all growing up until we attain to unity in the faith. Unity of the faith is a unity of mind that is a oneness in conviction and belief in the Lordship, majesty, power, and fullness of authority of the Godhead. That kind of faith will overcome every obstacle and mountain in our path and will transform our world.

Peace: The peace of God that is His shalom is a powerful principle that drives out all fear, anxiety and distress.  It is a peace that surpasses all understanding. The Hebrew word shalom has so much more weight than simply the absence of strife; it means to be safe, healthy and prospering in life, it is from a root word that means to be safe in body, mind and estate, to be complete!  Peace is who Christ is! He is the Prince of Peace and darkness cannot dwell in the presence of His peace. We can all be filled and exuding this supernatural peace that dispels fear and is a key to effective intercession.

Compassion: The compassion and love of Christ is an important attribute that we are to each carry. Wherever Jesus is moved with compassion in Scripture we see a miracle take place. Compassion is the heart of God and the basis for miracles. Judgment can also be the compassion of God, as the word says that when the world is judged it learns righteousness (Is. 26:9). It is God moving to save us from ourselves.  However as with all the attributes of God there is the counterfeit—counterfeit grace, love and compassion, and the attempt made to sanctify sin and bless what God has cursed and is not blessing.

Speaking in Tongues: God has given us the powerful weapon of speaking in unknown tongues—prayer that is motivated and empowered by the holy Spirit. Praying in tongues personally and corporately is powerful as it releases revelation and spiritual insight into situations, and can produce signs and wonders, and is in itself a sign and a wonder! In spiritual warfare we are posturing ourselves before God and looking to Him for insight, revelation, keys to win the battle and direction in our intercession.   In spiritual warfare everyone contributes to the corporate spiritual dynamic. The synergy created becomes a force that is unstoppable.

The Word of God: Lastly, and most important is the Word of God. The Word of God has supernatural power and always accomplishes what God has purposed.  God created with the Word and it continues to have creative power when spoken by the Spirit through us. Hebrews 4:12 says that it is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. When unleashed by the Holy Spirit, it has the potential to demolish strongholds in the path of God’s will.

I was once in a prayer meeting for Israel and at the start of the meeting God gave me a word, however, it did not seem to fit what was being prayed, so I  held it and waited. At the right moment the Holy Spirit said “Now,” and I released it. When I spoke the word it seemed to be launched like a missile, and I knew by revelation, that the word had left the prayer room, crossed the ocean, and landed in Israel—somewhere in Israel freedom came that day! That is spiritual warfare!

The Countdown Has Begun!

 

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.

Many prominent leaders are now saying that the Church needs to wake up and be prepared for the fight, and this is absolutely true! These times are calling for people of God to be secure in their identity, know their God given authority and know how to pray and fight within the safe boundaries set by the Lord. However, as important as this is, it is also important to recognize that entering into spiritual warfare with unhealed heart issues and outside of biblical boundaries prescribed in the Bible, is dangerous.

In the late nineteen nineties there was much intercession and warfare taking place in the church, however, much was done with an immaturity and lack of understanding of spiritual warfare. At that time John Paul Jackson released a book called Needless Casualties of War; with the publishing of this book, it seemed that intercession throughout the church got shut down for a season. I believe this book was sent by God at that time, as there was so much retaliation harming His intercessors. It is time for the Body of Christ to now rise as the army God has been training it to be, to fight in the many battles ahead. However, this must now be with the maturity and the wisdom we have gained—we will otherwise have another season of needless casualties of war.

In light of this, having led on the frontlines of intercession during those years, who became one of those casualties, I feel led to share some of what I learned. At the time, I was leading intercession with many skilled amazing prayer warriors and were seeing tremendous breakthroughs. Because of this, the enemy was continually trying to take us down…and he did eventually succeed. He succeeded because sin was in the camp. There was much pride and unhealed hearts in all of us; so needless to say, we suffered much retaliation. The enemy looks for your weak spot and will hit you in any area he can—finances, health issues, your property, relationships and marriages, and he works to continually bring division. If we are easily offended and have unhealed heart issues, he can quickly work to infiltrate the team to destroy it.

During that time God gave me a vision of a great looming Tower and the sound of a marching army in the distance… heading my way. As I heard the sound, I looked up at the tower, it was covered with windows and doors and they were all open. As the sound got louder, each one began to slam shut! The Lord then started to teach me about the gates and doors in our lives that were giving access to the enemy, and the strategies to close them in preparation for the coming battle with this army.

As the Lord released revelation and understanding, I shared them with the intercessors. These teachings eventually became the basis for my book The Plumb line. The Lord also released me in the area of deliverance, and I worked with each intercessor and took them through a time of prayer counseling and deliverance. I saw many get delivered of tormenting spirits and enter great freedom!

The Lord then gave me detailed and specific prayer strategies in response to certain spirits that were oppressing and hindering the church. The first one was Jezebel; the first part of the strategy was to study and understand the character and ways of this spirit and repent for any places in which we identified with it. We spent many meetings prayerfully humbling ourselves in preparation.

The Lord then gave me a plan to ensure that there was prayer covering for everyone on the intercessory team. Each person was assigned to cover two other people in prayer and were themselves being covered by two people. We then had a series of meetings to worship and intercede as the Lord led us. Our meetings were always very exciting as He was always there in our midst leading us to victory! After this campaign of prayer ended, there was an immediate release that resulted in the reconciliation of the church with an important family that had left the church through an ugly split.

Our next assignment was Leviathan, the king of pride. God had me wait for about three weeks to get His strategy for this spirit.  During the waiting time, we did the same as we did with Jezebel. We studied the character of this spirit and the way it functioned. We then repented for the ways that we identified with it.  The Lord warned us from Job 41:8 not to try to try to come against this spirit, as it says, “If you lay a hand on it, you will remember the struggle and never do it again!”

God then released the strategy, which was to have a series of Friday night watches where we would humble ourselves and pray through the night in worship, repentance and in seeking His face. These prayer meetings were extremely powerful! Unfortunately, in the last meeting I made a mistake. I perceived a dark mocking spirit on a throne and in the passion of the moment, came against it. The retaliation against me was fierce, as there was much pride in my heart; I crashed and almost had a nervous breakdown. You cannot fight pride with pride! And it is foolish to step unto the frontlines with outstanding sin in your heart!

Still, we learned a lot during those years about spiritual warfare and the importance of having a heart of humility, submission and accountability to leadership and to others. We all need regular spiritual check-ups on our heart issues, and if you believe that you are perfectly fine, and have no heart issues, then it is be possible there may be some deception, as that can be an attitude of pride.

I believe that all we have been through was boot camp training for this important hour, and am always reminded that we serve a God that has the power to fully heal and restore us, and put us back on the front lines, as He His word says that all things work together for good for those who love Him.

During those years, I came to realize how very ill prepared the Church was in regard to the warfare from the enemy of our souls. I wrote the book The Plumb Line as heart preparation to stand on the frontlines of the battle in the present hour. There are fierce battles on the horizon, where we are being called to serve the living God as an army, and as a generation that knows their God and does great exploits in His name. However, God wants us to be safe!

God has spent years refining and preparing us for this hour, that we would become a fierce army, a wise army, a strong army and a humble army—as it is only the humble and the meek that can stand against the forces of darkness.

There are two extremely important features of warfare that must be in place before we go into any spiritual battles; the first is living a life of obedience to God’s Word and having a heart of repentance when we falter. The second is the principle of unity—we must stand together corporately, in union of heart and mind in order to withstand the forces of darkness—a divided army will fall. It is important now to lay down our differences and offenses, and unite together for the sake of the Kingdom and for the sake of the world. The Word of God admonishes us to embrace the Cross and unite as one man in order to stand in victory.

We have entered a year where the very ground is shaking beneath our feet, where there is chaos in the world, anger, hatred, earthquakes, plagues, locusts, famine and pestilence— it is time to put on our armor and fight—not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual hosts of wickedness. 

God is launching a Campaign and will now be releasing prayer strategies to His army of intercessors in all nations. Our job according to Ephesians 3:10 is to declare and represent the manifold wisdom of God to principalities and powers. That wisdom is a sacrificial wisdom that does not seek its own but is a wisdom that is willing to lay down its life for others, as Jesus did! That is the wisdom of God! The Cross is the wisdom of God! It is not about how great and powerful we are; it is about how great and powerful He is! When we are centered in the will of God, embracing His Cross, our warfare will always be victorious!

God Bless you and Keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you peace always!

 

Three…Two…One… Lift Off!

 

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

Exploration

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

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

The Military and Warfare

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

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

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

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

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

Communication

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

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

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

Rules & The Israel Dynamic

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

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

Women of God

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

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

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

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

BIG THINGS ARE COMING!!

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

A Case For Christmas

 

Well it is that time of the year again…it’s Christmas time. This is my most favorite time of the year for many reasons.  Christmas represents the first part of the greatest story ever told—the birth of Jesus—God, born of a virgin, coming in the form of a man as a gift for the salvation of the world.  The great King of Heaven seated in majesty and glory, chose to leave Heaven to be born in a manger, because of His passionate love for humanity, as John 3:16 states:

 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever should believe in Him would not perish but have everlasting Life.”

I will never forget the year I got saved and asked Jesus to become the Lord of my life; the whole world looked very different to my eyes, it was as if I had never seen a tree before, or clouds or the stars.  I distinctly remember my first Christmas; I went for a walk one night, and as I was looking up at the stars, feeling the wonderful awe and majesty of the season, I started to sing O Holy Night…and I started to weep, I guess it was the incredible anointing on the song, but I wept also because I had sung that song from I was a little child…all my life I had been singing this song, and had never understood or felt the full impact of what those words meant until that moment!

O Holy Night, is my most favorite Christmas Carol; after 24 years of being saved the words still move me to tears, especially the line that says, “long lay the world in sin and error pining till He appeared, and the soul felt its worth.”  By experiencing the love of God, the soul felt its worth, and value!  That the King of Heaven would come for me, would pay the price of His Blood for me…this soul felt its worth!

That’s what Christmas means to me—that a King loved me so much, that He gave His Life as a ransom for me and saved me for all eternity….and that one day I will see Him face to face and thank Him and be with Him forever. Jesus came to planet Earth to give His Life as a ransom for all, for me, and for you, giving value to the souls of humanity. I am also moved by the hope for all embedded in Matthew 4:15:

“THE LAND OF ZEBULUN AND THE LAND OF NAPHTALI, BY THE WAY OF THE SEA, BEYOND THE JORDAN, GALILEE OF THE GENTILES—THE PEOPLE WHO SAT IN DARKNESS HAVE SEEN A GREAT LIGHT, AND UPON THOSE WHO SAT IN THE REGION AND SHADOW OF DEATH… LIGHT HAS DAWNED.”

This Jewish King came not only for Israel but also for the Gentiles—for the world, a Light has dawned…for God so loved the world that He gave His only Son.

I know that there are many viewpoints regarding Christmas, and many have tried to convince me that it is demonic.  But, for me, the sense of God’s Presence and love for humanity, hovers over the season, despite satan’s attempts to corrupt it with shopping, Santa and arguments.

People can get so caught up in arguing about the date December 25th, but for me, it has nothing to do with a date…I thank God that He has given us a whole season of about 6 weeks, to tell the world about the greatest story of all time…that we have been given a Gift of eternal destiny in Glory with our beautiful King!  In light of this what does it matter about the date!

Satan hates Christmas and has been fighting to eliminate IT FOR SOME TIME now, Why? For one reason:  HE WANTS TO ELIMINATE THE STORY. For another, HE HATES CHRIST… his plan is to mark a big X through the Name Christ, and to distract from the story in any way he can!

Many of God’s people debate about the root of Christmas and about the correct date of Jesus’s birth, completely missing the gift we have been given by God in Christmas—to tell the Story and spread the love of God.

My thought on these two issues are that we will never have an accurate date of the birth of Christ with certainty, God did not give us the date in His Word, on purpose.  I believe the date matters little! Lives coming into the awareness of Immanuel—God with us, does matter.

As at no other time of the year, at Christmas, God’s Presence, Mercy and Love can be clearly felt, hovering over the planet, bringing Joy, bringing families together, and reconciling relationships. At Christmas time, people for a short season take the focus off themselves and spend time thinking about others and their needs—people become givers, they become a little like Christ and give gifts…spending time thinking about what a friend or a loved would like or needs.

At Christmas people give to the poor, to children living in lack without hope, some help to serve the poor and the homeless, taking on God’s heart for a season!  At Christmas, as at no other time, Joy is in the air…joyful songs proclaiming the King’s story and glory are sung, heralded throughout shopping malls and stores, played over the airwaves on radios and TVs.

At Christmas, for the Great occasion of the birth of Jesus, God fills the air with songs of Glory such as O Holy Night, Hark the Herald angels Sing, Joy to the World, Silent Night, Mary did you Know, O Come Emmanuel, O Come all ye Faithful, Angels we have heard on High…. these famous songs were all inspired by the Holy Spirit for Christmas to glorify the King!  Even secular Christmas songs are mostly about Joy and Hope and Love!

At Christmas God has given a season of time with the greatest opportunity for the world to hear the Greatest Story they would not have otherwise heard.  At Christmas people who don’t normally go to church or know Christ—go to church and they Hear the Story. 

At Christmas the atmosphere is magical and ripe for the Story as Angels flood the Earth to minister and draw people to the Good News. Christmas creates the greatest evangelistic opportunities to tell others about the Love of Christ—why would we want to get rid of it? Why would we want to agree with satan’s plan?

Let us rather fight for Christmas, a season I fully believe was given to humanity By God in His Mercy.  Let us fight to keep Christ in Christmas and to take every opportunity to say Merry Christmas to someone and God bless you!

Let us make this a season to show love, patience and kindness to others, rather than hate and fighting and debating about things, that really don’t matter!  Let us use this time to show Christ to each other and the world!  Let us give gifts of kindness to others! When we give a gift to someone, we are actually giving to God…we become a little bit like God for a moment—the Giver of every good gift!

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”  James1:17   

I believe that darkness and hate is trying to overcome the world right now, but I don’t think God is going to let that happen just yet! Societies and nations have sunk into gross darkness before, over History and God moved to restore and to turn things around.  It is not impossible for God!  With one move of the Holy Spirit, with one great Awakening, God can change history!  He has done it before and He can do it again.

God will do it again! Why? Because He has a massive harvest of souls to bring into the kingdom of God, into His family.  Let us take the opportunity given to us this Christmas and others to come to begin to gather them in!

Good things are about to break forth!  Don’t give in to discouragement and hopelessness!  Showers of blessings are about to fall on mankind from our Great and Merciful Father. The time of judgment is not yet! He will come to save us…that is what He does…that is who is is…He is the Savior!

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year

God Bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you!

Faith & Frank

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

A Wave God’s Glory &Israel Day!

israel61.jpg

I have found that the walk of the Christian life is fraught with trials and testings on the Journey in Christ that takes us from Glory to ever increasing measures of God’s Glory. This has been my experience for over two decades of knowing and loving Christ. In the early years of my journey during very deep testing of my faith there was the tendency to fear and to doubt God’s comprehensive providence over my life. As I pressed on and began to experience victories and triumphs, and developed a well-grounded relationship with the Lord, I had in my possession testimonies and stories of His faithfulness to look to for assurance. Now, when walking through hard situations and demonic attacks, a light of revelation flashes in my mind, that this too will pass, and I will come out on the resurrection side of His Glory!

Recently after walking through a tough time I received a spectacular revelation and understanding of a profound statement made by Paul:

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—” 2 Corinthians 4:7-9

It is marvelous to possess a deep knowing in my heart, that I cannot be defeated, as the undefeatable One resides in me—to know that in Christ I am always victorious!

Recently I have been hearing the voice of the Lord resounding in my spirit with the statement, “The Glory of obedience!” I began to look over my life and I recognized that there was always an increase of confidence in the Lord and greater measures of His Presence in my life whenever I pressed through in obedience to the resurrection side of a trial. There would always come a distinct sense of the pleasure and smile of the Lord, and the increase of a deep resolution in my spirit of being well grounded, anchored and safe in Him. His pleasure was not necessarily because of obedience, but His great joy in me receiving the fruit of obedienceincreasing Glory and a sense of well-being.

The Scriptures declare that by the power of His indwelling Life, we are being transformed from Glory to Glory, from strength to strength, and from faith to faith (2Cor.3:18, Rom.:1:17, Ps. 84:7). This movement into being anchored in Glory, faith and strength, takes place within the context of obedience—the choice of an obedient life, despite the circumstances and the trials of life. Jesus, the Author of our faith, learned obedience by the things He suffered (Heb. 5:8).

With the continual chaotic atmosphere now present in the world what a treasure it is to Have Christ as our Anchor, watching over our lives and our every step! That is Shalom—the peace of God that works to continually guard our hearts from the tossing waves of life. Jesus is the Prince of Peace that covers every aspect of our lives, regardless of whatever circumstances may try to tell us. He is the Truth and His Word has the power to change whatever we think are the facts of any given situation. He is God, and His Word is truth.

I believe God wants every servant working in the Harvest fields with Him to possess a revelation of the depth of His love, and the full assurance of His care. There is a vast Harvest of souls prepared for Glory who are now beginning to come into the family of God. As we choose to step out with Him in obedience and take the risks in whatever he has asked us to do, the Glory of obedience will be released. In the season ahead an army of lovers of God will begin to move with Him under a powerful wave of Presence evangelism that Charles Finney walked in, as the levels His Glory begin to rise on the earth. The world will be drawn to such people and the atmosphere of God’s Presence around them will break yokes and awaken hearts from the power of deception.

We have shifted into a notable hour of great significance in the unfolding plan of God for humanity; a time I believe is closely intertwined with God’s transcendent destiny for Israel. Many significant moves of God in the Body of Christ have occurred concurrently with significant events related to Israel. A great wave of evangelism was released, surrounding the time of the re-birth of Israel 1948. It was a time when the ministry of the evangelist was restored. During that time Billy Graham’s ministry was launched drawing remarkable crowds who gathered to hear the word of the Lord. The movement to stadiums began in order to contain the crowds.

At that time a Post-World War II Awakening began, bringing the Latter Rain Revival and the Healing Revival. Large numbers experienced revival resulting in millions being saved. A prepared generation of Christian leaders emerged at this time backed with a powerful anointing for this move of God. Millions attended Billy Graham’s Crusades at a time when college revivals broke out all across America.

In 2018, seventy years later, Billy Graham the greatest evangelist has passed into Glory, and Israel is celebrating her seventieth year of re-birth. The timing of these two events are no coincidence. For this occasion, God also put in place  a President in the United States to set the world stage for Harvest, and most significantly to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem in commemoration of Israel’s 70th year. Heaven is acknowledging Israel’s divine right to exist, marking Jerusalem as God’s eternal capital and marking the beginning of the season of Harvest.

Seventy is significant of release from captivity—this Pentecost will begin a season where we will see great and effective doors open into the Harvest fields, ushering in waves of souls into the God’s family, as occurred at the first Pentecost. As the Body of Christ is grafted into Israel as Romans 11:17 states, we partake of the fat of the root and the fruit of the blessings, covenants and promises. God’s marking over history of key events in Israel to coincide with great moves of His Spirit in and through the Church reveals the reality of the One New Man created in Christ.

The Glory of God is about to descend in a fresh wave of evangelism released on the earth, and stadium gatherings prophesied by the prophets will begin to come to pass. I believe this time surrounding Israel’s birthday is the initiation of the launch of a new season of Harvest—harvest of all that has been sown in obedience…souls, finances, love, kindness and mercy. Presence filled prayer and intercession covered by God’s manifest Glory with signs and wonders will undergird this move of God.

“For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? Romans” 11:15

The Glory of resurrection Life from the dead will be released to the world! God is faithful. God is Good. God is holy! He has heard all our prayers for our families and loved ones, and He will answer them! His answers will come like rains of blessings on parched land, drenching us in His Love. The hate that has been released on the earth to steal the Harvest, will be washed away by tsunami waves of love released from Heaven to open the hearts of the lost and hopeless. God is urging us to press through the trials into the Glory of obedience! This is the season we have been prepared and waiting for.

“Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.” Hosea 6:3

HE SETS THE STANDARD FOR FAIRNESS!

books-2158737_1920

I recently had an encounter in the Courts of Heaven out of which I believe has come a very important and timely word for the Body of Christ.  Prior to this encounter I was taken in by a well thought out scam by a wolf—well dressed in sheep clothing, presenting himself as a very humble and reputable leader in the Body of Christ.  This word is not actually about his scam, but rather my interaction with the Lord after the scam was exposed.  However, I need to briefly set the stage: this so- called Reverend presented himself as having a well-established ministry.  He first asked me for some videos of messages to put on his website, I checked out his blog posts which had very sound teachings and his website showcased many respected leaders some of which I recognized and admired their work. I did give him a couple of videos to use.  On his website he had recruited a team of about nineteen pastors, leaders, and worship leaders as a team. He later asked if he could book us to speak to millennials at college events all across the U.S, everything paid for, no out of pocket money involved.  At first, I was a little suspicious as I did not see evidence that he could pay for all of this unless he had large sponsors.  I called one of the pastors who had become an administrator in the organization who vouched that everything was legitimate. However, she was also taken in by this man!  To make the story short, after many months of planning these events, he was exposed as a fake—he was basically raising money from sponsors for these events, using pastors and leaders as the bait—these events did not exist, and his plan was to pocket the money he raised.  On the surface everything had the appearance of legitimacy, but it was all fake—one of the pastors found out that he had done this before under another Ministry name.  I thank God he was exposed before anyone got in too deep with him.

After this, I was praying one morning and seeking the Lord as I had the sense that I had fallen into a spiritual trap.   I asked the Lord if Satan had any charges against me, I did not receive anything, and didn’t think I had as I have tried to lead a lifestyle of repentance, keeping very short accounts with the Lord.  However, as I was reading the scam report about this man, a great conviction came over me as God shone His light on a sin in my life that I had not considered sin or significant, however it was very significant to God!  I had a God moment like David had when Nathan said to him, “You are that man!” (2 Sam. 12:7). Of course, I had never done anything like this man had but there were some underlying elements that were similar.

God was highlighting to me the principal of casually making promises that you cannot keep, or like this man, you don’t intend to keep. In previous years, based on a big promise that was made to me, I asked a couple friends to help me with some work; they knew at that time that I would not be able to pay them without this backing coming through.  When It didn’t come through I paid them a small percentage hoping to be able to reimburse them in the near future, they didn’t mind at the time as they knew I was not able to do more.  Many years later I was able to fix the situation and in pure complacency I didn’t. That morning in prayer I saw it so clearly, that not keeping my word had allowed satan to set me up for this trap!  As I prayed to the Lord took me to Proverbs 16:11 in the NLT:

The LORD demands accurate scales and balances; HE SETS the standards for fairness.”

For three weeks prior, I had been taking communion daily for breakthrough in some areas and seeking God to close any outstanding gates to be prepared for this year. During the time of prayer in the Courtroom, God kept giving me scriptures from Job, and on the third day I received a newsletter on Job—I believe satan had received permission to try me and God was using this situation to bring some things to my attention! I was devastated and broken, I could barely bring myself to repent as I did not feel I deserved forgiveness in that moment.   I believe that through this whole experience, God was answering my prayer for breakthrough. I do thank God for this experience as with out it these issues in my life would not have been exposed, and I would not have been made aware that satan had a charge against me that was hindering me from breakthrough.  It took God to shine His light and reveal it to me.

I immediately sent out two email money transfers to start the process of repayment and was shocked when I received a reply that the money was desperately needed and came in at just the right moment. I had no idea, but God his Father did!

God showed me that as Proverbs 16: 11 says, HE DEMANDS ACCURATE BALANCES! HE SETS THE STANDARD OF FAIRNESS—Not earthly courts, not earthly lawyers, not friend’s opinions or advice, not our reasoning and not even how well the job was done!   God then gave me the word CONTRACT.  I looked up the definition which said: a written or spoken agreement, especially one concerning employment.  I had broken a spoken contract and God was holding me to my word!

I felt the fear of the Lord as He made me understand how strongly He felt about His people, especially leaders being people of their word—that the word of the Body of Christ must be dependable and trustworthy if our words are to have any power or authority to bring change! He said, Authority does not come from having the right semantics, from the right tone of voice, or charisma, He said, “Authority comes from a heart in right standing with Me!” A heart founded on righteousness and the integrity of a life well lived in the fear of the Lord! Such ones will have Authority to legislate the Heavens! God is saying that our word must count for something! He warned that we are to beware of exaggerations, and making light and empty promises in zeal—to let our yes be yes and our no be no.

“All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.” Matthew 5:37 

We cannot live the Christian life on our terms but only by the Word of God and His precepts! I saw that by not living by God’s standard I had fallen into agreement with the enemy and into his trap.  I saw that in this scam I was reaping from what I had sowed.

God also showed me that many see Him, whether consciously or unconsciously, as one who does not keep His promises; who does not pay what is owed for service to the Kingdom according to Your Word in 1 Corinthians 9:7-10—that there is resentment and offense in the hearts of Your people toward You because of this.  He revealed that there are many cases presently being held up in the Courts, and finances are withheld because we have been withholding what rightfully belongs to others, and the law of reaping and sowing is in effect in many cases!

God is saying that in this new era we have entered into, the time when he will begin to bring in the greatest Harvest mankind has ever seen; when the great wealth transfer is set to be released for this purpose, that the injustices built into the walls of His House must be cleansed. He showed me that those who are builders of His House are called to hold fast to His principles and reminded me of Jeremiah 22:13:

“What sorrow awaits Jehoiakim, who builds his palace with forced labor. He builds injustice into its walls, for he makes his neighbors work for nothing. He does not pay them for their labor. He says, ‘I will build a magnificent palace with huge rooms and many windows. I will panel it throughout with fragrant cedar and paint it a lovely red.’ But a beautiful cedar palace does not make a great king! Your father, Josiah, also had plenty to eat and drink. But he was just and right in all his dealings. That is why God blessed him. He gave justice and help to the poor and needy, and everything went well for him. Isn’t that what it means to know me?” says the LORD. NLT

law-1063249_640That morning I stood before the Courts of Heaven and Jesus my Advocate stood with me, the Holy Spirit Another Advocate groaned and travailed for me. I was led by the Spirit through a legal process of forgiveness and cleansing as I repented for a series of issues. God then said I was to have communion…I could barely do it because for the first time in my life I had a clear revelation of the cost Jesus paid for the sins I take so lightly.  I saw my pride and arrogance and was greatly distraught over the state of my heart—but the thief was exposed, and the Lord ruled in my favor!

Afterward I had a vision of a road getting very narrow and foggy in the distance.  He was showing me that the road ahead, especially for those called as leaders, was about to get much narrower, and we would need to stay very close to be able to navigate the way ahead, that we needed to cling to His Wordthat His Word would literally become the Lamp to our feet and the Light to our path in the days ahead!

Today, many in the Church have fallen into a place of complacency about the Word of God, and are compromising through their own reasoning, but God is holding us accountable to every Word He has spoken and expects His people to walk with integrity.  Shallow Christianity will not stand, it cannot be about about appearances, looking good and big displays of success—but rather a life of service in humility!

“Blessed is the man You choose, and cause to approach You, that he may dwell in Your courts. We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Of Your holy temple.” Psalm 65:4 

 Heavenly Father, you alone are Good, and You alone are God! Lord it is so easy to fall short of the Standard of Your Word, but you have given everything we need to live a life of righteousness; You have given us One Who helps in our weaknesses, Who stands with us, Who lives in us and loves us passionately—One in whom we live and move and have our being.   Forgive us Father for the times we have taken others for granted—those whom you care ferociously for, for the times when we have used others for our own selfish gain or abused and trampled in pride and arrogance those whom you love.  Time and time again You have shown us what is good, what you require, to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with You. Father help us to humble ourselves before You today, to see and confess our sin, for the sake of Your beautiful and Holy House.

The New Wine, The Oil & Donald Trump

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE WINE IS READY AND KEYS TO UNLOCK YOUR DESTINY!

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

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

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

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

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

Being Rightly Positioned

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

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

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

Cities of Refuge – Called to a City.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“In The First Year of King Cyrus!” Receiving Our Marching Orders & The Beginning of The Wealth Transfer!

32758260270_07f945c5bc_b

I believe that Lance Wallnau was one of the first, if not the first, to prophecy that Donald Trump would be the 45th President—a Cyrus king according to Isaiah 45, chosen to release God’s captive people. Many prophetic voices have since received revelations that agree and confirm this as God’s word and God’s will! Recently I was in the Lord’s Presence praying about the year ahead and the resources needed to implement God’s strategies for this season of reprieve, when the Lord led me to the passage in Ezra 1:

“NOW IN THE FIRST YEAR OF CYRUS KING OF PERSIA, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation… Who is among you of all His people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel (He is God), which is in Jerusalem. Ezra 1:1,3

The last five prophetic articles that I have written have all been related to the presidency of Donald J. Trump in some way, and God has not yet released me from this assignment. This is because this new Presidency is a sign and a wonder, marking the invasion of the Kingdom of God, moving in to RESET the downward spiral into hedonism, immorality, and lawlessness leading to ultimate chaos in the world. In the Bible, Heaven moved in response to the anointed prayer of God’s servant Daniel who, HAVING READ JEREMIAH’S PROPHECY, UNDERSTOOD THAT THE APPOINTED TIME HAD COME FOR THE GREAT RELEASE!

“Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by THE WORD OF THE LORD THROUGH JEREMIAH THE PROPHET, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.” Daniel 9:2

IN THE FIRST YEAR OF KING CYRUS, spiritual doors supernaturally swung open by the Might and Power of our God, for the release of His people to fulfill their destiny—the return to His original intentions for their lives! The Father’s plan charted the course for His people to accomplish great and marvelous things in His name, just as He had told them when they were first taken captive to Babylon: “FOR I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you (Jeremiah 29:11-12).

hikers-1147796_1280Heaven is now marshalling its troops for THE GREAT RELEASE! Those who have ears to hears are hearing the sounds of Heaven’s Call and are preparing for their MARCHING ORDERS! Many who were taken captive to Babylon were content to remain in captivity—to what was known and familiar to them. But for others, their hearts burned with longing and passion for Jerusalem, with the desire to move and flow in sync with the burning heart of God for the completion of His purposes! They said YES! They packed their bags and set out into the unknown, trusting the Father with their lives and their destiny, and trusting the Holy Spirit’s direction!

The Father says He knows the plans He has for us! These plans are not just for us to have a nice house and a nice car—these are nation, city and life transforming plans for our families and our communities, marked by eternity. In Isaiah 1:19, God says that if we are willing and obedient we will eat the best of the land! The choice is ours, as was told to the captivity in Babylon by King Cyrus:

“ANY OF YOU who are His people may go to Jerusalem in Judah to rebuild this Temple of the LORD, the God of Israel, who lives in Jerusalem. And may your God be with you!” Ezra 1:3

God has promised that we would have the best—He is now about to release the GREAT TRANSFER OF WEALTH, long-awaited and prophesied over many years—this, because the TIME has come to build, and the Kingdom of God is at hand—fast approaching! The time has come for every willing person to be released into their call and ministry—a ministry that God, in hiddenness, has been making the necessary preparations during the last season. All the needed resources and supplies to accomplish our mandate will be released as we make the steps of faith according to His leading.

Ezra reveals three sources from which the great wealth transfer was released to those whose hearts God had stirred to go: firstly, the supply came through friends and neighbors who chose to remain: “And in any locality where survivors may now be living, the people are to provide them with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with freewill offerings for the temple of God in Jerusalem’” (Ezra 1:4).

dollar-163473_1280The second source of supply came by way of the return of all the treasures stolen during the captivity. Over the years, God has been keeping account and records of all that belongs to us, stolen by the destroyer and enemy of our souls. Like Cyrus, God will command that everything stolen from us—finances, relationships, our joy, hope and our health, be returned! Donald Trump is a SIGN to all that God is faithful and is presently working to bring this pass: “Moreover, King Cyrus brought out the articles belonging to the temple of the LORD, which Nebuchadnezzar had carried away from Jerusalem…In all, there were 5,400 articles of gold and of silver” (Ezr. 1:7,11).

The third source of supply was the treasuries of the King! The vaults of Heaven were opened! Our Father who owns all the silver and all the gold, and the cattle on a thousand hills is able to supernaturally open any door, at any time! He is also able to open unknown sources of supply, and cause to be manifest things that are not—as though they are!

“IN THE FIRST YEAR OF KING CYRUS, King Cyrus issued a decree concerning the house of God at Jerusalem: “Let the house be rebuilt, the place where they offered sacrifices; and let the foundations of it be firmly laid… LET THE EXPENSES BE PAID FROM THE KING’S TREASURY.” V. 3-4

In Ezra chapter 6, a search was made for the archives where the promises were written, previously given to the people in the first year of King Cyrus. In the last month, God has instructed me to go back to my old journals and re-visit all the prophetic words given to me, the promises given and the revelations regarding the Call. As I began to meditate on these things the Holy Spirit was moving, stirring my heart and igniting passion once again to believe again, to hope again and to get ready to take the leap of faith into destiny! During worship one morning I had a vision of a scroll being presented to me, having golden writing on it and tied with a golden ribbon. I asked the Lord what it meant, He said it was the gift of my destiny! Divine destiny is a gift given by God to be treated with awe; in the set time, when we have been prepared to treasure, guard, protect and hold what He intends to give—HE PRESENTS THIS GIFT TO US! Ezra chapter six describes the great wealth transfer provided by the God of Heaven stored up for His great work to begin:

“Their expenses are to be fully paid out of the royal treasury, from the revenues of Trans-Euphrates, so that the work will not stop. Whatever is needed—young bulls, rams, male lambs for burnt offerings to the God of heaven, and wheat, salt, wine and olive oil, as requested by the priests in Jerusalem—must be given them daily without fail, so that they may offer sacrifices pleasing to the God of heaven and pray for the well-being of the king and his sons.” Ezra 6:8 -10

With every word that I write, the Lord continues to call me to lay emphasis on the significance of what is being handed to us in this period of history, so as not to waste one moment of the GIFT of this God given opportunity. We must make maximum use of the reprieve that He has graciously given for His will to be accomplished in this momentous hour of history to, “…root out and to pull down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant” (Jer. 1-10). Through the Trump Presidency, Great favor is now being given to the Church in the U.S to accomplish God’s mandate, as a season of prosperity has opened—I believe this will extend to the Church globally.

This period will not last forever, it will have its conclusion in the future, and there are important things the kingdom intends to accomplish during this time! Those who have ears to hear, who understand the time restraints, and the scope of what God intends, will quickly get on board and be used to implement God’s strategies. I recently had a dream where I gave birth to a child, who over the course of a few days went through rapid stages of growth from a baby to a toddler, to walking and talking. God was revealing through this dream that ministries are about to be birthed and will accelerate rapidly, and it is now time to get onboard with Him!

God is giving the Church back its voice to become a change agent in the world. I believe this next era will bring exciting innovation and strategies to accelerate the work of God, as was the case other notable times of History. The Lord showed me that those in President Trump’s Cabinet such as Rex Tillerson, Nicky Haley and Betsy Devos have been in preparation throughout their lives for this notable moment of history, and will become a Cabinet that will transform America and change world History.

God has also assembled His apostolic, prophetic Cabinet who will manifest from obscurity—brought forth for this hour! These are men and women of excellence, specialists in their area of expertise, representing facets of our beautiful Bridegroom King—Jesus Christ. All the Glory of His magnificent attributes will be showcased in this hour—His boundless Creativity, eternal Wisdom, Transcendent Nature and His Boundless Heart. These men and women each have key assignments, that together in union, will bring forth the full representation of Christ—the fullness of His Stature!

In this hour, Jesus will receive all the Glory!

“In a loud voice they were saying: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!” Revelation 5:12
