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 Presence, The Journey of the Ark & the Blood Moons

Ark (2)(A repost and update on an earlier word written in 2014)

The ARK OF THE COVENANT was a visible sign of  THE PROMISE OF GOD’S PRESENCE, a promise based on the agreement to follow hard after the Lord on a Journey of obedience!  The Bible declares that all creation reveals the Glory of God!  His attributes can be recognized by the sublime magnificence of His handiwork.  When we make the deliberate choice to search for Him, we will find Him!  His face becomes visible within the starry hosts of heaven and in the wind of the rustling leaves of majestic trees and in our hearts!  However, God has also chosen to reveal himself in manifest ways throughout the history of Israel and in tangible form as the Son of Man.

The manifest presence of God chose to come down, to a chosen nation set apart for his purposes, to initiate the awe-inspiring Plan of Redemption. A plan that would see the  recovery of mankind from their lost state and restore them back to the everlasting arms of love, I have come down to deliver them…” (Ex. 3:8).

THE PRESENCE ‘CAME DOWN’ and lived amongst people—His very heart’s desire from before the foundation of the world!  The Plan of Redemption, centered in Israel, held the Key to salvation for every tribe and nation on earth.  THE PRESENCE came down and initiated the beginning of His transcendent Plan, a plan that is revealed on a Divine Journey, to be completed with His manifest PRESENCE ruling and a reigning over the earth from Jerusalem!  God marked both the beginning and the end of this Journey,  and significant milestones, with three major Feasts times and celebration.


The beginning was sealed with the Passover feast. This signified the crossing over of a people into His purposes, those set apart as a holy offering unto Him.  God established the Feasts of the Lord as His Feast!  The continual celebration of these Feasts prophetically declared to Israel and to the world, the key facets of His ultimate Plan of Redemption to build Himself a Home in man individually and corporately.   The Passover feast prophesied the coming of Christ our Passover—the lamb slain for the salvation of the world.   He was the sinless One and the Holy First Fruit of many, resurrected onto God.  The Feast of Pentecost prophesied of the coming of the Holy Spirit—the BREATH and Life of God released into the Body of Christ.  The completion of God’s Plan will be marked and sealed by the Feast of Tabernacles. This Feast is representative of:

  • The ingathering of the Great Harvest of souls at the end of the age
  • The COMPLETION OF THE GREAT JOURNEY characterized by Sukkot – temporary dwellings places of the Journey, fulfilled at the completion of the Temple of God
  • The Great Wedding Feast of the Lamb. 

The Feasts of Passover & Tabernacles reflect the beginning and the end of God’s Plan of Redemption.  We have all entered on this Journey from Passover to Tabernacles with Him as we grow on our ascent to Union with the Christ as Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega!  This is a Journey  characterized by the Cross—we continually pass through a series of crosses in our life as we are purified and prepared for the Holy One—Jesus said we are to pick up our cross daily!

THE JOURNEY IS ULTIMATELY HIS JOURNEY!  God came down and carried Israel through the crossing over from Egypt into His purposes.  He has been moving on this Journey through History purifying and gathering in His children along the way.  At Salvation we enter into HIS JOURNEY and move out with Him to follow the Ark of THE PRESENCE!


Those called to lead and carry the Ark of THE PRESENCE were required to be wholly consecrated unto Him and to carry the Ark in a prescribed way.  David made the mistake of not complying with God’s demands resulting in a man’s death.  David learned, as we must also learn, there is a protocol to be carriers of HIS PRESENCE, as He is a Holy God! IN THE PROCESS WE ACQUIRE THE UNDERSTANDING THAT WE ARE TOUCHING THE PRESENCE OF THE ALMIGHTY, THE LIVING GOD —THE GREAT I AM!

In His great mercy God gives many chances to get it right, although there is sometimes a cost! David made a second attempt, this time doing it God’s prescribed way.  They sacrificed every six steps and “David danced before the Lord with all his might” up to Jerusalem—Jesus’ Home and seat of His Throne (2 Sam. 6:14). The Body of Christ is on such a journey with THE PRESENCE.  On our individual and corporate journey we have made many steps and pauses where were given the opportunity to praise, worship and thank Him that He would even allows us to be on the Journey with Him!


About eight years ago I had a dream that I believe is significant to this time.  In the dream I was wearing a very long coat.  I reached deep into my pocket and pulled out a bottle of wine.  On the bottle was marked boldly the number 414.  The bottle was already open and a small amount had spilled.  My friend then said that she was desperate to get this wine and went to make a call to see if she could find it.  When she came back I asked her if she found it, she said she did but it was far too costly! Years later I was working on a particular chapter in my book, In His Image! the chapter title was For Such a Time As This based on the book of Esther. When I checked the scripture reference I saw that it was Esther 4:14.  I then understood the meaning of the costly Wine.

“For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise from the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish.  And who know but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this, and for this very occasion?” Esther 4:14

Esther could have lost her life but she counted the cost and made her decision, “If I perish, I perish.” The year I had the dream, Passover fell on April 14, revealing the very high cost that Jesus, our Passover paid on the Cross when His blood—the Costly Wine, was poured out for us!


In 2014, Passover fell on 14/4/14, in a very special year marked by the beginning of a series of Blood Moons referred to as a Tetrad (see  article—Shifting, Shaking & the Coming Blood Moons).  The number 4 represented the YEAR OF THE DOOR.  In the Hebrew alphabet the dalet is the 4th letter and means ‘door,’ and its numeric value is 4.  The Body of Christ passed through a SPIRITUAL DOOR and SHIFTED into a season that God was marking with 4 Blood Moons!

We are being shifted into the season of the COSTLY WINE.  God is about to pour out an abundance of NEW WINE, that is very costly!  There is always a cost to following the Ark of THE PRESENCE as David and Esther came to understand.

Gold ringAs I was preparing to write this word in regard to the Blood moons in its relation to the movement of the Ark of His Presence, the Lord brought to mind the four Golden rings on the Ark. When building the Ark God instructed that FOUR GOLDEN RINGS were to be crafted on either side for poles. The poles were to be lifted up and carried on the priests shoulders. The Lord revealed that the 4 Blood Moons falling on the Jewish feasts of Passover & Tabernacles over a two year period, was a sign representing the 4 GOLDEN RINGS and 2 poles used to LIFT the Ark whenever it was time to move. This was marking a significant SHIFT in the Journey of THE PRESENCE from Passover to Tabernacles!

I was very resistant to sharing this as I could not see how four golden rings  related to four blood moons, but at the very moment I was wrestling over whether to write it or not I divinely stumbled on an article that stated:

“If you were standing on the moon during a total lunar eclipse you would see the Earth as a black disk with a brilliant orange ring around it,” said Alan MacRobert of Sky and Telescope magazine. “And this brilliant ring would be bright enough to dimly light up the lunar landscape.” (Hamilton Spectator- April 7th 2014)

On Israel’s journey, when the Cloud of God’s Presence moved, they were to move with it, and the Ark went before them carried by the priest.  The Tetrad of Blood Moons, that began at the Passover Feast 2014, is a revelation that THE PRESENCE is moving and is making a MAJOR SHIFT on the JOURNEY up to Jerusalem, on its way to the Feast of Tabernacles to complete God’s transcendent Plan of Redemption!  The Ark of THE PRESENCE moves progressively, taking territory on its way to establishing the Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in Heaven!  God’s Presence is marking another major milestone of THE JOURNEY of His-story as He moves to fulfill His purposes on Earth!

goden ring ark1The procession of the King, up to the Seat of His Throne in Jerusalem is accelerating!  This is fiercely contested by the power of darkness.  The Body of Christ must carefully watch the Ark of THE PRESENCE as we have not walked this way before (Josh. 3:4).  We are entering an unprecedented season of  the display of God’s power  with signs and wonders, to undergird His work of completing His purposes.  It is time to consecrate our hearts, set out from a secured position, be prepared to make sacrifices, and be ready to drink the COSTLY WINE He is about to pour out!   We have experienced a measure of the Costly Wine of HIS PRESENCE, however, God has saved the best for last! He is about to pour out this LAST WINE in abundance to sustain His People!

It is time to transition from the Jesus of Salvation, revealed in Passover, to the Jesus of Glory revealed in Tabernacles—from being Saved to being SEATED ON THE THRONE

“But when it pleased God…to reveal His Son in me…” Galatians 1:15-16 

“But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the LORD, And of justice and might…” Micah 3:8

Only a revelation of THE CHRIST in Glory will bend the knee and cause all to fall prostrate before the Majesty of the King of kingsThe majesty of the Glory of Christ revealed in us will overwhelm and consume all that hinders, and all obstacles on our path as together we shout, “Grace, Grace!” 

As the final Blood Moon makes its appearance this month, God is sounding a trumpet to awaken and to mobilize His people. We are in the time of a major shift into the fulfillment of the promises of God to posses and occupy cities and nations for God!  A time when strategies will be released to the faithful, the diligent and those prepared in wisdom. The Kingdom of Heaven is about to get very intentional about retaking the kingdoms of this earth for the Lord! The Lord of all the Earth is setting out and releasing the Armies of God to go forth with Him in Power and in the strength of His Might to complete His Will! 


The Coming Storms & The Day of Resurrection

The Storm

A large percentage of the words that I write have been devoted to the building of the House of God. God has put an urgency in my spirit that His House is to be made ready for two main reasons: the first, in preparation for His return and, and secondly that it would be a place of safety & protection for His people and the great harvest coming in. Many years ago the Lord gave me a vision that began my journey and gave birth to our ministry. I was standing looking up at a very large and high fortress stretching into the sky. Covering the tower were numerous doors and windows of all shapes and sizes—they were all open! As I stood staring at the tower, each one began to slam shut. At the same time, that this was taking place I could hear the distant and ominous sound of marching footsteps from an approaching army. God revealed that the fortress was His House and the gates and doors needed to be shut and sealed with the Blood of Christ in preparation for the great Day of battle approaching in the distance.

Whenever there is warning of a coming storm most people will begin to make preparations. We will ensure that we have enough food, water and supplies. As the storm approaches parents will warn children to get inside the house as they begin to ensure that the doors and windows are covered and reinforced. In the case of a Tornado it is important to stay close to something that is anchored securely. As the storm draws near voices of loving parents will get firmer, more urgent and louder to the children who are not listening. In a recent time with the Lord I heard Him clearly say, “Storms are coming!” with that sense of urgency! I then heard the Lord say clearly the words, “Walk about.” His instruction was to do a walk about as Nehemiah did. When Nehemiah arrived in Jerusalem to examine the condition of the city, after walking about and examining its gates he said:

“You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.” I also told them about the gracious hand of my God on me and what the king had said to me. They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they began this good work.” Nehemiah 2:18

As a loving Father God has concern for the well being of His children. I believe God is calling us as individuals, and as churches to do a walk about, to examine our gates and the doors providing access to the enemy. God is focusing now on relationships, and the unity that has His will at its centre, in order to rebuild the walls and repair the gates with the strength that will endure! The truth of our condition can only be known in the tests! It is in the tests that lies and deception are exposed and truth made manifest!

God has promised to shake everything that can be shaken! The purpose of the shaking is redemptive, to expose the rotten or weak foundations that people have built their lives on—that they may turn and be save! His House must be founded and built upon the rock of Jesus Christ that—a Rock that cannot be shaken. Everything that does not align with who Jesus is in Mind & Heart will not stand or remain when the dust clears.

God is the safe Place in the center of all storms! Over the last two decades of preparation He has been gently wooing us from the outer courts to come and dwell with Him in the Holy of Holies. He is now blowing a trumpet with urgency and sounding an alarm through the many tests and trials the Body has been facing—purposed to strengthen us and move us forward, encouraging us to press on into the safety of His Presence. We do not need to look at the news to know that storms are coming—the Word of God clearly reveals that there is a Day of Battle. God is looking for a generation of leaders to rise up, those who are strong in faith who do not need to be coddled anymore, as their eyes are fixed on the Lord, their foreheads like adamant stone and their countenance like that of the Lord. These are ones who know their God and will do exploits for the kingdom, who are bold and courageous and not afraid of the rebellious in the House.

“Behold, I have made your face strong against their faces, and your forehead strong against their foreheads. Like adamant stone, harder than flint, I have made your forehead; do not be afraid of them, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they are a rebellious house.” Ezekiel 3:8-9

This Headstone Generation are like David who learned, “to strengthen himself in the Lord,” in times of trouble. These ones will be strong towers who will move in the miraculous; they will comfort the weak when they are overcome by what is coming on the earth.

“See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice. Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land.” Isaiah 32:1

“Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.” Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped.” Isa 35:3-5

The Day of Resurrection

Easter_resurrection_background-6The Lord gave me a picture once of an egg being hatched, the shell was cracking open and the chick was attempting to break free. I then saw a picture of a dark tomb. I saw that the egg represented life and the tomb represented death. I asked the Lord what this meant, Life or death, He said “Both.” The life represented the Life of Christ breaking out of a confined place, and the tomb represented the death of Christ and the cross being applied to our souls—the Word of God states that we died in Christ and we were buried with Him (Rom. 6:4). The lord then took me to the book of Matthew:

“The next day, the one after Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees went to Pilate. “Sir,” they said, “we remember that while he was still alive that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise again.’ So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first.” “Take a guard,” Pilate answered. “Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how.” So they went and made the tomb secure sealing the stone and setting the guard. Matthew 27:63-66:

The Lord then showed me that in the same way that the enemy was attempting to imprison Jesus in the tomb, he is attempting to seal the people of God in the place of death, by posting guards at our gates to keep us imprisoned. I asked the Lord what the gates were…He answered, “the sin that so easily besets us,” the weak areas that we each struggle with, presently affecting us and the corporate Church that is His Body.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…” Hebrews 12:1

Jesus’ enemies mocked Him and said, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself!” However, there was no stone that could hold Jesus—the Head in the tomb! When the women came to the tomb an angel was sitting on the stone that was supposed to imprison Jesus! Because we are united to Christ the stones and demonic guards cannot keep His Body imprisoned either! When Jesus was raised there was an earthquake, that earthquake was the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit breaking Him out…the same resurrection power that resides in us!

YES, THERE ARE STORMS COMING, BUT THERE IS A DAY OF RESURRECTION also coming for the corporate Body of Christ! The Angelic Hosts are now being released on assignments to remove all stones, hindrances and demonic guards now challenging God’s purposes in the Body of Christ. On the third day Abraham saw the place of sacrifice—the place of the Cross (Gen. 22:4). Moses told the people of God to prepare themselves for on the third Day God would come down on in the sight of all (Ex. 19:11). “…but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen. (Act 10:40). In the Day of Resurrection eyes will be opened to see!

Whenever Creator God moves and shifts the world into new times and seasons, the Word reveals that His movement is accompanied by lightening and thunders and earthquakes:

“On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled.” Exodus 19:16

As God moves in four major shifts in the book over Revelation we are told that there were lightenings and thunder, “And from the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices”. Revelation 4:5, 8:5, 11:19, 16:18

The Greek word for voices is phōnē and means an address through disclosure. We are in the early part of the third Day and God is getting ready for a significant shift—an address through disclosure, marked by signs in the heavens and on the earth. God’s end-time campaign is being prepared; a line is being drawn and nations are being given the choice to align with Him. The Father is sounding the trumpet, calling His children to get into the secret place of His Presence. It is time to do a walk about to identify the weak places, to strengthen and secure them with the forgiveness of the Blood. The Blood must be on the doorposts of our hearts and our churches in the times when the Lord will Passover. As we are given eyes to see the place of Cross, we will begin see the Lord of Glory. We will rise in resurrection power for the Day of His Power! Deep darkness will cover the earth but His Glory will be seen on a people rising up like a lioness with the shout of a King among them, ready to advance the Kingdom of God!

“Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you for your own.'” Joshua 1:11

On the third day Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the palace…” Esth. 5:1
“…but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen.” Act 10:40

“On the third day a wedding took place…” John 2:1

Can You Hold The Ground God Wants to Give You?

Faith BaczkoTHE HOLY SPIRIT WAS SENT TO COMPLETE THE WORK OF GOD TO PREPARE A PEOPLE FOR THE COMING GLORY OF GOD ON EARTH!  He comes possessing the whole counsel of God and bearing the Divine Blueprint of all that is to be built for God, in the name of God.  His requirement for all who would be servants of God to serve and administrate His purposes in the closing of the age is absolute submission to His will.  This is in direct opposition to the human tendency towards desire for control!
It is very clear in Scripture that God spent much time and patience to ensure that the men and women He chose to use to fulfill His purposes were vessels who would not capitulate; He chose vessels that were surrendered and accountable to His purposes and directions.  Jesus’ life as a Man, in full submission to the Father is the great example of this!
Those that choose to obey God on their own terms, in their own way, in their own time, deceive themselves into believing they are living the Christian life!  Saul chose to compromise on Gods commands and made the grave mistake of modifying God’s instructions to his own reasoning, to suit his own desires, and was disqualified.
It is important to intentionally guard our souls, as it is so easy for the enemy to manipulate this desire for independence and control. Because of our passion and zeal for the sphere God has entrusted to us—our ministry, our churches, the people we care about, and even our own walk with God, we can easily fall into the trap of making decisions based on our good intentions rather than His directions!  The fruit of this behavior is, striving, works of the flesh and the possibility of becoming burnt out and falling into discouragement!  God’s Word to us is always, “CEASE STRIVING IN THE FLESH AND STRIVE TO ENTER MY REST!

The Lord once spoke these words to me very sternly, which was puzzling to me at the time: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:15).  I was puzzled because I thought that I did believe the gospel…until He clarified.   He explained, “You are in the fullness of appointed times, and the Kingdom of God is FAST APPROACHING!  Repent and believe in the FULLNESS OF THE GOSPEL, a Gospel that encompasses all the anointing, the gifts and the supernatural Life of Christ, evident in Him, and won for you on the Cross as your inheritance…a life of which you are presently living at the very minimum!  Repent for your unbelief and begin to take hold of this Life!”
I quickly agreed, realizing that this was very true!  I was not living, and not even believing the fullness of the Word of God in relation to my personal walk, and the scope of what was handed to me at salvation.  I was passive in pursuing my inheritance in Christ! God then showed me Hebrews 3:12:
“Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God…”  God calls unbelief evil!  This was a great shock to me as I have always been radically passionate for God and was not aware that I was entertaining an evil heart!  Hebrews three and four describes a generation who could not enter the Rest of God because unbelief had led them on a treacherous path to disobedience!
“And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey?  So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.”  Hebrews 3:18-19 
“THEREFORE, A SABBATH REST REMAINS FOR GOD’S PEOPLE.   For the person who has entered HIS REST has rested from his own works, just as God did from His.   Let us then make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the same pattern of disobedience.”  Hebrews 4:8-10

The scriptures teach that God would not have spoken of another day of rest if the promise of DIVINE SUPERNATURAL REST did not still stand for us TODAY!
“…again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “TODAY,” after such a long time, as it has been said: “TODAY, IF YOU WILL HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS.” For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of ANOTHER DAY.”  Hebrews 4:7-8
DIVINE REST IS ENTRY INTO THE SUPERNATURAL LIFE OF GOD WHERE WE SURRENDER ALL, AND HE MOVES IN TO TAKE OVER TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT WE COULD NEVER ACCOMPLISH IN OUR OWN STRENGTH!  Much has been spoken about the Jewish month of Elul that we are presently in; this month is significant as a time of repentance and asking forgiveness of our sins, in preparation of the High Holy days and the ten Days of Awe that come prior to the Feast of Tabernacles.  It is also a time when ‘THE KING IS IN THE FIELD.’ This is a time when the King leaves the Palace and comes close to enter your ‘field.’ I believe in this historic time, it signifies that God is coming very close, He is moving into our spheres to set things in His order and I believe also to take over!
Over the last ten years the Lord has been showing me that, “He is coming, before He Comes!’  He explained that His manifest Presence is going to show up in Fullness in the Headstone generation (Zech 4:7) to work through them to prepare the way of His Coming!
“I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the LORD Almighty. Malachi 3:1
We are about to enter the Jewish Schmita year—the seventh year ordained by God when the land was to rest, and all cultivation or harvesting of the ground was forbidden. It was a supernatural time as God promised that if they were obedient, they would receive a bountiful harvest to compensate.  This Schmita year from 2014-2015 is very significant in light of recent world events. This year has been prophesied to be a tumultuous year by Chuck Pierce and a year of possible great disaster by Jonathan Kahn. It will take great courage and trust, and a very strong relationship with the Lord, in order to be obedient to rest in our desire to strive in the midst of troubles around us, and trust Him to release to us His supernatural and bountiful harvest.  If we allow Him His place as LORD in the battles ahead, we will overcome!  We will walk in the Light of His Glory and be victorious!
The global Body of Christ is poised to enter a great season of Divine Glory; a time when the God of Heaven and Earth will arise to show His Great power and strength on behalf of those whose hearts are wholeheartedly obedient to Him.  These are saints who know their God, who exalt Him with resounding praise in their hearts, and shall do great exploits in His name!
“Therefore behold, I am going to make them know—THIS TIME I will make them know My power and My might; And they shall know that My name is the LORD.” Jeremiah 16:21 NASB

The Lord is setting His people and His Church in Divine order, in preparation for this OUTBREAK OF GLORY!  We are being called to account to bring our lives into Divine alignment to His ways, purposes and His Will!  THE LORD IS NOW STRATEGICALLY RE-POSITIONING HIS PEOPLE FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT!  It is very important in this hour to be moving with the Holy Spirit in a union of heart and mind that comes only through intimacy. Intimate friendship with the Lord gives the ability to hear with precision, receive revelation of His will, and understanding of Spiritual realities!
It is a time for every knee to bow to the purposes of God, leave our plans and agendas behind, in absolute submission to His will.  It is a time where we will be tested in our faith, trust and belief in the One we profess to be our God and very God!
God is getting ready to release the answer to prayers we have been believing for, for a long time, some are even ancient prayers, prayed by the saints over history; they are about to be answered on a scale not previously seen! The alignment of many factors in God’s timing was necessary to bring us to this day! Can we hold the ground He has purposed to give, is one key factors God has impressed upon me over the years! God is not holding out on us, He is very strategic in all that He does!  He has purposefully and with intentionality worked to prepare us for this day, refining us through very hard trials in His Holy boot camp.   The Holy Spirit has travailed to produce His character in us, secure foundations of unconditional love, to forge within us a stance that is fixed on Him and His Kingdom purposes! He has worked to teach and equip us to use the tools of His trade effectively and with precision. This pattern is evident in His work in the Children of Israel; He took them through forty years of fire to bring forth a generation who were fierce as Lions in search of prey; a generation that moved as one force with precision backed by heaven to strategically infiltrate and possess the Promised Land.  This is that which was spoken of by the prophets! This is that Day!
“I have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot change it.”No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel. The LORD their God is with them; the shout of the King is among them. God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox. There is no divination against Jacob, no evil omens against Israel. It will now be said of Jacob and of Israel, ‘See what God has done!’ The people rise like a lioness; they rouse themselves like a lion that does not rest till it devours its prey and drinks the blood of its victims.” Numbers 23:20-24 

I believe all that has taken place in the Body of Christ up to this point has been training and preparation for the Church’s greatest hour in its History!  Those who have willingly allowed Him to refine them in the fire, who have a fortitude of spirit to occupy and hold the ground He gives, are about to be released en masse to penetrate and infiltrate the kingdom of darkness to capture and rescue its prey!
“Can plunder be taken from warriors, or captives be rescued from the fierce? But this is what the LORD says: “YES, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.” Isa 49:24-25
