The Word of the Lord over you these next nine days
May 26, 2015
"I am calling you close. I am your (El Elyon) Lord God Most High and I am causing my blessings to overtake your circumstances in these days before you. Get ready because everything that has tried to hold captive your dreams, arrest your development and keep you from fulfilling all that I have placed in you is about to be dismantled and removed. For my wisdom shall flow from you like a river that cannot be held back or dried up with silence. It will cover those who are willing to hear and obey my word of release in this season."
"As I release great liberty, you will no longer feel confined. Your previous captivity has had to do with how others felt about you and your own perception of what you thought was necessary to do to be accepted. You are who you are and you can no longer be contained in others evaluation of you. For I chose you, fashioned you and you are accepted as my beloved. I made you and formed in you greatness and now as you draw nigh the increase in you will pour out living waters into others and quench the thirst that has fallen so heavily upon many."
"So gaze upon the overflow and watch how these waters will flow onto all the dry places that surround you. You will speak under the anointing and call those things be not as though they were and they will become. For I have stored wealth within thy members and you will flourish and others will be increased. For I have already determined your outcome for it is rich, bountiful and full of fruit, says the Lord. Laugh, Be joyful, Sing praises to my name."
Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.
For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.
The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
May 2, 2015In my time of prayer before the Lord I saw a highway. It appeared to be rush hour traffic and the lanes were moving slow. All of a sudden a lane would open up. Most cars stayed in their current lanes waiting for the traffic to pick up. Have you ever been in a lane or a line and asked yourself, “How did I wind up in the slowest of all the lanes?” As the other lanes begin to move forward people found themselves complaining about where they were instead of watching and waiting for the time and opportunity to move ahead. They responded with words of frustration instead looking for that opening to advance and move forward. The Lord told me to keep watching. Many were honking and not letting anyone in because they felt if they had, that there would be further delay. As I watched, I began to see openings in the traffic where one could maneuver and move ahead quickly without the long wait. The Lord said, “My people have entered into a time where things will accelerate and there will be visible openings for advancement. They will see places of opportunity open up, and they will no longer be hindered even in the midst of the traffic.”Several things were mentioned to me concerning this vision:
- Sometimes we will get off the major highway and venture into areas that are unfamiliar. As a result, delays can occur that will keep us from getting us to our destination on time.
- We can’t allow frustration to cause us to give up. If we had stayed the course we would have gotten there sooner. Why get off the road prematurely? Only to later wonder why we haven’t progressed.
- We need to let the areas that are the crowded work for us. It is only temporary. Keep watching for opportunities of advancement, but also keep moving. Don’t stop!
- In the midst of the warfare we must focus on what is working and not what is hindering us. How we respond to our circumstances can affect our travels.The Heavens are Open:There are times in our transition when we perceive that things are operating in one way, when in fact what we see is skewed by our thinking. Sometimes we are over-thinking situations and as a result there is an overwhelming fear that tries to slow us down so that we don’t see the opportunity to move ahead. These are things to consider. We must pray Father open our eyes that we may see the BIG PICTURE and what we are called to do. Believe me we have walked into a season of open doors where the Lord himself will usher us into realms and places of victory we have never seen. We can’t let the heavy traffic keep us from seeing that the Lord is releasing increase over His people. His very breath is upon us to remind us that we are a persevered people and we will be victorious if we respond to His words by walking in them. Blessings of increase is being released in this hour. What we walk in even prophetically, we will possess.Deuteronomy 28:10-14 “And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee. And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee. The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow . And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.”It’s time to Lay Hold:The kingdom of heaven is like that highway. At that entry we must press to enter into it. Understand in the grasping and seizing of our assignment in the kingdom we become the kingdom. We then find that our efforts to fulfill that assignment is on the path of our destiny, because we are in step with Him. Doing so we lay hold to that which has now laid hold to us. As we align ourselves with Christ we come into agreement with the life that He desires for us to live. Time to change our thinking for now is the time to become an active participant in the furthering of our destiny. We have a responsibility to get to our destination and to aid others in getting to theirs. Coming into the fullness of a destiny that those who lost their way have also found has its own rewards. (Philippians 3:12-14)Matthew 11:12 (NIV) “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.”Matthew 11:12 (NCV) “Since the time John the Baptist came until now, the kingdom of heaven has been going forward in strength, and people have been trying to take it by force.”Matthew 11:12 (Jubilee Bible 2000) “From the days of John the Baptist until now, life is given unto the kingdom of the heavens, and the valiant take hold of it.”Matthew 11:12 (Bible in Basic English) “And from the days of John the Baptist till now, the kingdom of heaven is forcing its way in, and men of force take it.”If we are the kingdom and the kingdom of God is at war with the kingdom of darkness then we are at war. Some of us are under constant warfare, but we must not allow ourselves to be defeated. Let us lay claim to that which belongs to us. Let us be ready to act out the strategies of the Lord. There will be times we will have to valiantly hold our own ground and not allow the enemy steal from us what is already ours. How many times have we read in His word that in the midst of great opposition, the Lord brought forth great miracles and did great exploits? So will we shrink back in fear or continue to advance the kingdom?1 John 3:7-9 “Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.”His Words:“I am breathing a fresh breath of life upon you. Now take in this fresh release of my life and strength. From now on live, grow, and become all that I have called you to be. Begin to walk it out and watch me see to its completion. What I am doing in you in this hour is greater than anything that has ever happened in your life. You must believe, you must know, you must become what I have formed and created you to be. For what I have placed before you is greater and bigger than you can perceive and the old you can not accomplish it. So breathe in, and allow your life follow after me and the plan that I prepared for you. You belong to me and I am personally seeing to your success as you press in. Whether it becomes your failure or your success still depends on you. You have to realize that you have overcome, because when you walked with me I overcame it through you. Placing our opposition under my feet.”“Demonic forces are trying to convince you that you will not succeed but look around you. You have already overcame many things that literally tried to wipe you out. You are not alone, for it was me in you all along. Persevering, prevailing, and preserving you, as you are transformed into what I have called you to be. Much awaits you and there will be somethings that will stand in opposition before you. The truth is the enemy is more afraid of you than you are of him. This is one of the greatest times of your life. Deal with dark areas of your life, by my word, by prayer and supplication. Change and turn from them because your assignment is greater than the trouble that has tried to draw the life and strength out of you. Behold I blow upon a fresh breath of life. Now you will come forth, flourish, and grow like a green leaf. Remain in me, and you will not wither nor will you fade. I have created you for this time. Within you there are more answers than you will ever realize.”“As you study my word know that in the midst of a great hardship, despair, and even death I revived a people. Many miracles came forth and my people overcame. I say again to you, study my word. In the face of evil came victory, and I wrought powerful miracles by my own hand. The blessing being released now carries the anointing to overcome your present enemy. For my blessings are far greater. I have raised up a people of great faith, who endured in the face of adversity. There has been so much focus on the enemy that it has become a major point of distraction. Do not be distracted. For I am raising up an army who have overcome. Do not say once this enemy is defeated we will go, build, and conquer. I created you to be kings and priests. So rise up and do great exploits in the face of your enemy. Your perception must change. Now is the time for building. You must seize the day and take what I have already given to you.”“Your trials of adversity became the crucible which has formed and created your inner beauty and fortitude. I say to you. Look, see, that even in trouble you fared well. Weep no more, mourn no more, for I have given you beauty for ashes, the oil of gladness and the mantle of praise. Embrace this moment and let it carry you into the fulfilment of the dreams that you have hoped for and prayed for.”“Know this is a day of reckoning. There is more trouble in sight but your triumphs will overtake your troubles. Know that the earth is in travail. Remember you have overcome. As you see the wheat and tares grow together for a time know I have a day appointed the tares will be taken away and cast into the fire. Look within my word, there you will find answers, even understanding of great mysteries which have yet to be revealed. In this hour great revelation is springing forth for I have created a code that the enemy can’t understand nor decipher. Within it is great light and the darkness can not comprehend it. I am also validating patterns and blueprints of prayers and revelation that will conquer your present enemies, slay giants of deception and even dispel dark works of divination.”
April 14, 2014
Prayers are changing and transforming major things right now. There is a stirring of hearts and minds moving towards the heart beat of the Lord. For kingdom plans are being walked out by many who are moving in my purposes. Can you hear the sound? The brush of angel's wings. Can you feel the movement going on around you? You have entered into the time where you will see the manifestation of the prayers that you have prayed in times past. Yes, they are coming into full view--watch old dreams, old projects, and old blueprints come into a divine timing that could only be determined by me. There is even family restoration that is coming alive with great healing and resolve.
A surge of new strength has been activated, and it is taking up where you left off in prayer. Now pray for your next leg of this new journey of life that awaits you. You are not the same, you have overcome the old things that tried to hold you back. Now move forth with this new strength...you will receive instructions as you go. Your previous trials have made you bolder, greater, and that overcoming anointing is upon you. You will into walk into places and the atmosphere will shift because you have overcome.
Keep moving, don't stop now major ground is being taken in the realm of the Spirit. This advancement is getting you ready for what is about to happen in your life. You will never be the same. Angelic reinforcements have stepped in to assist you and you will not miss the mark.
I say to you again. Now pray into your next leg of this new journey of life that awaits you. PRAY: Don't come off the wall.
The fervent prayer upon your lips will move mountains, and it will confront the enemy that stands at the gate. P R A Y E R has power!!
April 1, 2015
Some of you might be saying, “Well Phyllis, What is the Lord saying for the month of April 2015?” The Lord is saying trust Him with everything that is going on in your life. I trust the fact that the prophets are speaking, that God is moving very deliberately, and His purposes are now being established in the earth. In the last 24 hours I have seen judgments and blessings released. I am in awe of the handiwork of God and all that He is doing in this season.
There are something’s you can see and something’s that your heart is in beat with because you know the Father. You know even what you cannot see yet. When you know a thing and you cannot see it your ability to trust God until manifestation becomes mandatory.
While you are waiting on Him be ever constant in prayer, rejoice, and worship not just about your life but for others as well. Work on lending strength to your church, your group, and your tribe. Then walk outside of that circle and see what you can do and whose life you can affect for the good. There is much to be done!
Take time to wait before the Lord. Incline your ear to God’s voice and listen whole heartedly. Take time to smell the almond trees in bloom and take time to minister to others in love. Cherish and live your life giving, loving, worshiping, and rejoicing as you enter into your season to be favored.
Inhale the Holy Spirit's breath and breathe out all that is not like Him. I hear the footsteps of the Father. The wind is blowing in the trees, the birds are chirping with new sounds, and the meadows are filled with flowers that reach upward as they bloom.
“My presence is hovering over you and will define the very moment you are stepping into, says the Lord.”
God is working out things for you even those things that go beyond your hopes and expectations. So do not allow anything take your joy. For the time of testing is coming to a close and soon you will see the Father standing as your ever present solution bringing with Him resolve to many matters concerning you.
Play close attention! For that which is approaching you now is very significant. You will see glimpses of the Father and even the angels leaning in to speak to you concerning the things which are to come. Your life is beginning to unfold. Turn the page to your next chapter and get ready to take the next step.
Romans 8: 28 (KJV) And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Romans 8:28 (MSG) That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.
I remember an old mother once telling me, “Baby, don't look for a new word. Just wait! I hear manifestation coming. Just trust Him!"
Frequencies of Heaven
March 14, 2015
There is much that can be said about that which is caught and that which is taught. The wisdom of God that is being released during this time is being carried through various frequencies. I would like to share this revelation that the Lord gave me so that we may pray into it, catch it, and be blessed by it. It will take us into another dimension of prayer and open up new understanding in the realm of the spirit. Understanding that is being made accessible to us by the Spirit of God through His glory and wisdom. It has always been available, but not received by those who have been spiritually asleep. A new generation of people are awakening. Those who are consciously waking up will catch this and walk into new places in God.
Right now there is much activity going on in the Heavenly Realms, but in the midst of that there are many things that we can greatly benefit from. Things that will bless us if we press into the presence of the Lord. We know that where sin abounds grace abounds much more. (Romans 5:20). If we go into a prevailing fervent prayer, praise, and worship we will enter into a door in the heavenly realm. A door that leads us to a place where synergy, sound waves, and heighten frequencies release a wisdom accessed by the spirit of God. Wisdom that is touching earth right now.
If we begin to access it we will reach higher levels. We will hear and see the things of God in heights and depths of revelation that we have never walked in before. Even God’s word will reveal itself to us in new ways as a light shining off the pages. Those waves and frequencies of heaven will be "received" and upon receiving it we will understand things that we now know but have not previously comprehended. The alignment of the frequencies of the Heavenly Glory realm are causing a recalibration that is repositioning God's people. Our prayers, praise, and worship are activation keys for the body of Christ. GPS: The Grace Praise Sound and the Global Prayer Systems are receiving and transmitting the sound waves in the GLORY Realm.
Just as high pitch frequency can shatter glass or catch the ear of a dog from far away. There are sounds in the heavenly realm that are open to us. The Lord as he shared the concept to me said that this is not NEW but it was an answer to that which he spoke concerning sound waves and frequencies. (See ** in the referenced word below.) This is why we can’t just receive a word and then move on to the next word without understanding the fullness of what is being said. We must pray into that word and hear what the Father is saying to us so that we may gain access into what is being made available in the time or season that it is being released.
If you look at 1 Corinthians 2:6-15 in the Message Bible it provides an interpretation to us that is really life changing. We have access to the spiritual understanding of the Lord which is way beyond what we know, see and hear with our normal senses. Doing so will help us to grow leaps and bounds in the things of the Lord. It contains the ability to achieve things we couldn’t normal achieve on our own. So the statement Eyes have not seen and nor Ears heard speaks volumes. It is time to tune into the frequencies of Heaven the place where battles are fought, won, and the future is declared. It will be the place we can find through prayer, worship and praise doorways that will be open to us. We will tune into the answers that will help us understand with a new heighten insight into the operations of God. Bringing us to a level where we can align what we already know to newly received revelation from the realm of the Sprit.
What is a receiver anyway?
Receiver (rĭ-sē'vər) A device, as in a radio or telephone, that converts incoming radio, microwave, or electrical signals to a form, such as sound or light, that can be perceived by humans. Compare transmitter. (Taken from American Heritage Science Dictionary.)
So what is being said here? The Lord is sending out to us wisdom from the throne of GRACE to provide us with answers, strategies, divine direction, in an Esther moment of time. They are coming in waves of glory, sounds of worship, and the releasing of praise and adoration unto Him. As we press into His presence in a priestly celebration that will bring forth freedom. Bondages that limit us will be broken in the presence of His glory. Glory that carries both light and sound are being transferred into the hearts of the people. The Holy Spirit is aligning us with God's frequency in this hour. We will see from a higher perspective commonly referred to as the wisdom of God. It will stretch beyond touching, unifying, and healing broken hearts by way of those who have gained access into those heavenly realms.
I say to you religious strongholds that held a people captive will be released in this hour. The Haman’s who had tried to destroy a people who God himself has preserved will now perish by his own plots and devices. Many will enter in and be changed by the sounds and the waves of Glory worship that will come forth. An apostolic prophetic people who walk in a priestly worship anointing will catch a second wind and as the glory sweep through regions. New ground will be taken for the cause of Christ. This is the time! “For the season has come and we have come into the Kingdom for such a time as this.” We will also see coming into the last week of March going into April 2015 a changing of the guard. These shifts will bring changes in leadership in line with Daniel 2:21.
(Now I know what the Lord meant when He said he would move mightily from Purim to Passover and from Passover to Pentecost.)
Here are some references from the Word of the Lord March 2015 and scriptures that the Lord shared with me:
"**There will be a synergy and a sound that is coming together. It will create sound waves even heighten frequencies that will travel throughout the nations.** For the hour has come and my army will arise to the sound of its coming. My army will move with great determination. They will not fear nor be afraid because the greater cause, the greater purpose is in view. This is the army I am preparing now. The enemy shall see them from a distance and fear will come upon them. For this is a gathering and joining of hearts who have prayed to see this day approaching, those who have cried out to me between the porch and the altar. So wait upon My Glory for it will move through waves in great power. Many will witness a tangible presence in the face of men and they shall know that I am a Man of War, says the Lord. (Exodus 15:3)"
"My wisdom will speak in this season and be heard throughout atmospheres. Change will cover many who could not find their way and a mighty turnaround will occur in the very midst of them. Those who have been stuck because of unresolved issues of forgiveness, I am placing the ability to fight and overcome in them. During this time you shall see and understand the wisdom of the King. I will speak to my army and they will hearken to the hearing of my voice. They will become activated right in the midst of the worship and praise, with the sound of angels rejoicing. For my army is marching forward and they shall not break rank. My decree has been ordered and will not return void. It has been signed and sealed with my signet ring. All that I have ordered will come to pass. This is a time that my people will fight and will not stand idly by while the enemy presses in against them. They will declare the word I have spoken and their voice shall be heard. So come, receive your marching orders this day and be willing in the day of triumph for I am raising you up in preparation to take the land for me, says the Lord.”
" The Lord is promising that He will preserve His people and His kingdom will be fortified by strong prayer and worshiping that will transition us all from Purim to Passover then from Passover to Pentecost.”
Daniel 2:21-23 (NASB) "It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men and knowledge to men of understanding. “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him. "To You, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, For You have given me wisdom and power; Even now You have made known to me what we requested of You, For You have made known to us the king's matter."
1 Corinthians 2:9-15 (King James Version) "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
The Word of the Lord for March 2015
Here we are in an Esther year where "We will overcome battles by His grace" (Elijah List 12-18-2014)* Now as we move into March 2015, we will enter into the feast of Purim [March 4-5, 2015] but at the same time the Lord said we are approaching a Hadassah moment in time.
"Know that you have waited for this time and that this time has been waiting for you. For those who have prayed for this hour . . . the hour has come. It has come for Glory, for Beauty, for Holiness, for Righteousness and for the redemption of a people who are moving forth in this hour. For my light and glory is coming upon them and is leading them into discovering light in new places. Everything that reflects that light will move according to the light. The light will lead many into greater light. For in this gathering of light my glory will shine in the hearts of my people. This time will mark the season of my people joining with each other in unity and purpose. In the unity, the blessing will touch many and others will join together as a people of purpose and power. They will become a mighty force to be reckoned with as the kingdom advances. Can you see it, as it begins to spring forth now? For I am bringing forth this time of kingdom refreshing and all shall see and marvel at the Light of its' Glory."
"Do not shrink back but embrace the moment, for this greater glory will become a place of peace, a refuge from the storms of life. Many will begin to see themselves as Kingdom Royalty for I have called them to be the priesthood that will celebrate this time of overcoming. For they will stand before me in my presence as the Kingdom arises. I shall speak and all will know that this is one of the finest moments in the year. It is arising from a persistence in warring and prevailing in prayer. It will come forth even as the battle is fought and won in the heavens. There is a determination to hold on and not give up for major advancing now will lead to major victories. Beachheads are being established and major ground is being taken in the realm of the Spirit. There is a stirring and a gathering. They shall gather from the right and the left, from the mountain tops and from depths of the valley. As they gather they shall sing together for the Joy of the Lord will echo as the trump of the Lord blows over the regions. This is the time that Wisdom will blaze a trail to conquer and overcome the ills of the day."
"For there is an uncovering of that which is hidden and a releasing of key strategies. They will transform the status quo and will deal with various strongholds of religious systems. Who shall contend against me, says the Lord? For they will be uncovered in this time of great Light. They will not be able to stand against the Glory without being affected by its power. My word of wisdom is coming forth now that will pour out answers to those who have cried out. Time is now converging with the fulfillment concerning a people's destiny. For this is a Hadassah moment, an appointed time for favor to reign upon my people and victory shall come. There is a mighty release of the priestly anointing as it ushers in a worship that is coupled with the breaker anointing. (Micah 2: 12-13) For I will lead the procession breaking down every struggle and hindrance that has tried to keep my people from walking in freedom. Issues that have tormented people will be removed, deliverance will come for those who longed to be changed as they are touched in My Glory."
"There will be a synergy and a sound that is coming together. It will create sound waves even heighten frequencies that will travel throughout the nations. For the hour has come and my army will arise to the sound of its coming. My army will move with great determination. They will not fear nor be afraid because the greater cause, the greater purpose is in view. This is the army I am preparing now. The enemy shall see them from a distance and fear will come upon them. For this is a gathering and joining of hearts who have prayed to see this day approaching, those who have cried out to me between the porch and the altar. So wait upon My Glory for it will move through waves in great power. Many will witness a tangible presence in the face of men and they shall know that I am a Man of War, says the Lord. (Exodus 15:3)
"My wisdom will speak in this season and be heard throughout atmospheres. Change will cover many who could not find their way and a mighty turnaround will occur in the very midst of them. Those who have been stuck because of unresolved issues of forgiveness, I am placing the ability to fight and overcome in them. During this time you shall see and understand the wisdom of the King. I will speak to my army and they will hearken to the hearing of my voice. They will become activated right in the midst of the worship and praise, with the sound of angels rejoicing. For my army is marching forward and they shall not break rank. My decree has been ordered and will not return void. It has been signed and sealed with my signet ring. All that I have ordered will come to pass. This is a time that my people will fight and will not stand idly by while the enemy presses in against them. They will declare the word I have spoken and their voice shall be heard. So come, receive your marching orders this day and be willing in the day of triumph for I am raising you up in preparation to take the land for me, says the Lord."
Isaiah 43:1-3 But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in exchange for you.
"You are being raised up in a moment of time when there is great acceleration. Those who have tarried for the vision are about to see it come forth. Run with the vision that I have given you and do not fear for I have set things in order to strengthen what I am establishing now. Do not be surprised at the increased momentum that is taking place now. You will find yourself running to catch up with tasks that must be completed in order to further implement the vision set before you. Many will run to keep the vision in motion. I am setting things in order. Know I am moving by my power, in my own time and it has caught the enemy off guard. Everything that has been established through prayer and supplication is being birthed and set in place. Everything has a place and that which is out of place will be moved by my very hand. Don't be troubled by what you cannot see. Do not allow fear to overcome you because I will bring forth my will and purposes. I have determined the outcome and I will not be denied. My people will rejoice in the victories that will come as a result. This moment has come so that I might bring forth freedom to a people preserved."
Commentary: When Esther first entered the kingdom she became aware of the enemies plan to destroy the people that God had preserved. She was utilized and positioned for the preserving of a people. Just as the women who were mid-wives that were instructed to destroy the first born. Those Jewish babies who were birthed came through their obedience. (Exodus 1:19-20) The midwives did not obey the orders of the King but obeyed the order of the King of Kings, The Lord God Almighty.
We are seeing Israel's issues as they have come front and center with the elections taking place in this month (3-17-2015). So many others things are also going on during this time. The Lord is promising that He will preserve His people and His kingdom will be fortified by strong prayer and worshipping that will transition us all from Purim to Passover then from Passover to Pentecost.
Prayers over Israel:
When I was in prayer over the trouble that is looming over Israel, He spoke to me about Aliyah.
*Aliyah in Hebrew means ascent, it is the immigration of the Jewish people returning back to the land of Israel.
"As I am returning my people back to their homeland so am I returning my people back to their original intent. There is a great restoration that is coming concerning My chosen ones, for I have not forgotten them. I have preserved and protected them as a people. They will walk according to their original purpose and fulfill their true destiny," says the Lord. "You will begin to see what I placed in them before the foundation of the world. The enemy's plan to destroy and pollute the destiny of a people, will come to naught. Remember this no matter what you see. I am placing victory in the hands of my people. Victories that will be proclaimed and realized in the days to come. All will know that I have the final say no matter how the enemy becomes self-assured in his plot of destroying a people (like in the days of Haman--His plan will not prosper nor will it be accomplished.) I declare a new day and with it will be my proclamation. The manifestation of my newness will fall fresh from my glory as it meets with the purpose that I have set for this hour. In it will bring forth new life, even a people preserved."
The Word of Wisdom and what it brings to the table of the Lord.
When the Lord began to speak to me about the wisdom being released in this time, He specified the word of wisdom which is in 1 Corinthians 12: 7-8 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; The Lord spoke that many of His people do not fully understand the Word of Wisdom but it refers to having a knowledge given directly to the person by way of the Holy Spirit. It has within it an understanding of the redemptive plan of God. It contains mysteries of the gospel that have to do with the Will of God in that instance. So when we hear a word of wisdom we are talking about the destiny of a thing, its divine timing, and how it works out in God's plan of redemption to the one who is receiving that word. It is God's answer speaking into the circumstance of a particular thing. It is my opinion that not only can prophets release a word of wisdom but Apostles as well because it deals with having an understanding of sound doctrine.
Kingdom Servant leadership
Get ready to see more of those who have not previously stepped forward, come forth and begin to do powerful things in God. The Lord said people will rise up and overcome the works of the enemy. It is a part of a divine strategy that will catch the enemy off guard. Yes we will see the David’s, the Deborah’s, the Elijah’s, the Joseph’s, etc. We will also see those who resemble significant people whose names were not mentioned but had an impact on kingdom victories. Who were biblically referenced as: certain women, mid-wives, mourning women, handmaidens, men servants, the mighty men of valor, and certain men. In this hour the focus will not be on titles or positions, but on servant leaders who are passionate about the Kingdom work. Watch also the Stephen's and Jael who rose above and beyond their assignments /job descriptions.
*Hadassah or Esther?
Hadassah comes from hadas which means myrtle tree. It is liken to a good tree with a pleasant fragrance. Also means righteousness. Esther-comes from hester which means hiddenness, Godliness. I believe the duality of both are significant. (Esther 2:7)
Word of the Lord for February 2015
It seems each year that February is a time when there are major things on God's agenda. January is always looked upon as a time that most people begin their year with prayer and consecration. However there are distinct reasons that point to the necessity as to how and why this month plays a significant role in the rest of the year.
· This year in February 2015 many leaders will be given major downloads that will further clarify their levels of responsibility in the preparation and implementation of kingdom work ahead in respects to how each group will operate. They will be shown what is and what is not working. Several days ago, I received a powerful visitation when the Lord spoke to me about this coming month. He began to share the coming challenges and how we would overcome major hurdles by His grace into each circumstance during this time of great illumination. There will be issues that we will face now and if dealt with early it will prevent future trouble from arising with worse consequences.
· This is a time where denials must give way to the reality of God’s word. Things will not be pushed under the rug concerning His people and as leaders, we will be held responsible to inform the body. Much has come under U/L testing in the lives of God’s people. We must make adjustments or deal with why there are delays as a result of not completing the necessities that faced us. We will revisit tasks until we complete what must be done. Our refusal to deal with issues of growth and maturity will be right in our faces. We must walk in a new awareness and integrity concerning how we treat others and how we live our lives as examples of kingdom servants. Our level of standard is now coming under review.
· Many might say in the face of these things I thought we are under GRACE. The reality is we are. We are being given time for “do-overs” carrying the very mercies and love that the Father has for His children on every level. We must also understand that the Lord chastens those He loves. It’s a work of His grace in our lives as we are His beloved, but we must not confuse walking in truth and His will with legalism. Understanding that grace and truth are in harmony according to His word. It is time for the body to move in consistent growth and development. The work is before us and we must come up higher and be responsible. This is a time to take on our assignments as He is releases His marching orders. However the God news and good news is that we will walk out his plan with the “best technology” of His Grace that we have ever operated in as we are in Him. He is giving us mighty downloads of revelation truth than we have ever had. (Luke 8:17).
· The work will not be as difficult as it seems, because it will flow from a pure stream that comes from the very fiber of who He is. Our knowing and coming into the understanding that it is Him working in us will go way beyond what we could ever do. The key is in His presence, in His light, and in His glory IN HIM as we operate under His mighty hand. The light projected in this hour will not only uncover darkness, but it will dispel it. It is key to get in, stay in, and walk in His Light. If we reject His light then we will operate out of something that is not him. It will not have power and will not bring results. Many will visibly know the difference between the two.
· He spoke of the lamp (light) that was in the hand of Gideon and his army. It was God’s strategy for the Midianites defeat. When the pitchers where broken they revealed His light. He spoke also concerning the Ark of the Covenant being placed in the dark place of the Philistines temple where the statue of Dagon was. Upon the next day it had fallen face forward. When the statue was set up again upon the next day it had fallen again, but this time the head and the palms of its hands were broken. These are biblical examples of how the power of the light will effect the darkness. The Lord said Study His Light allow great mysteries to be revealed at this time.
· These are the other visions during the span of three days: (#1) I saw horses running downward from a hilly place. Their movement was swift and definite. It was like they knew where they were going and what had to be done. I have an understanding that those horses as they move were clearing the way for its young and less skilled. While a part of the older skilled horses helped usher the another group as they went. There was about 27 of them.
(# 2) In another vision I was given a gold key and engraved upon it was 5775. The Lord showed me a formula with a numerical pattern and I begin to see a tremendous importance to this time (5775) compared to others. [More on that in another posting.]
(#3) I saw butterflies that were fluttering around all colors and when I looked closely I could see people having the wings of butterflies and I said, “How is it that they are all here together at the same time?” We are about to see many come forth out of their cocoons in a moment's notice. It will be a work of the Lord. Just as it was with the horses running with a swift determination to obey the voice of the Lord.
· I heard the Lord say that spiritually spring will come early, and it will carry a freshness in the realm of the spirit. Many will awaken out of their winter state of mind. They will rise up and spring forth into the newness of the light. Many will come forth in the harvest of salvation from seeds that were sown in prayer in the last 2-3 months. They will bloom early and stand strong in the glory of the Sun (Son). Watch for hidden riches even treasures of darkness that were prayed and birthed from the secret place. People who have been diligent and served quietly will be recognized for having great value. They will be looked upon like Mordecai when the King remembered his good deed.
It was revealed to me that Salt not only comes to season, preserve, and protect but also to bring balance. At the end of the visitation the Lord’s last words to me was that, “Things are about to get salty!” Several days later he explained what that meant. [To be posted in the future.]
“In this month I will bring forth great light. Everything will come under the scrutiny of my Light. That which seem to be gray areas will be made clear in the light, even the motives of men because this is a time of revealing and with it is revival for that needs to be strengthen in this time. Even that which has been false will be uncovered by the light. There is a distinct reason and strategy for Light to shine so brightly now. It is a declaration and a statement that is being ordered in this hour. My light will unveil the enemy’s plans and purposes and with that there will be a great turn of events.”
“My light will dispel the darkness off of a people willing to come unto me and the darkness will not be able to comprehend the seriousness of its consequences. So examine closely what you see so that you might understand what is being made clear. Much will be accomplished and procured in this Reigning Light of My Glory as it begins to move upon the land. Much will be recovered in the light because with it there will come a revealing of that which the darkness held in bondage and confined for a season. In this hour many will be set free to walk in the liberty which I have proclaimed and it will no longer be held back. For I have heard the cries of intercession even the sound of generations and the light of my presence has been extended to bring freedom to my people. Many will know that this is a spiritual coup that I have ordered and prepared before the foundation of the earth.”
“The heavens have declared it and it will begin to take hold over the lands, over the governments, and over a people who have been waiting upon me. I am answering the heart’s cry from the secret place of those who have cried out for the last seven years. I will allow the light of my presence to show the way with streams of wisdom that will flood men’s souls providing them an escape out of their circumstances. I will even take the simplicity of things and deal with complex problems that seem to have no remedy in sight. Allow my light to show you your heart, motives, and ways so that you can walk in fellowship with me concerning what must be procured and achieved as an answer to that which is coming.” (The Lord showed me some very serious things that we would need to be prepared for and that which will appear as a major hindrance within our nation. I saw a vision where men were sitting at a table drawing up war plans.)
“As the light will shine upon many, my people will see light upon things that others would regard as darkness. You must be able to see the light coming into the lives of those who have never encountered the light. In this hour you will see new inroads to Evangelism that have not been walked out before. New outreaches are being set before you, new strategies are being implemented to usher in a people who desire change and have fallen into snares of the enemy. In this time of great enlightenment I am also separating light from those who reject it and from those who will hold and receive light. This separation is necessary because what will be seen as an entry (door) for some will be a dead end for others. Those who carried the light of my presence like a bride carries a veil, will find themselves separated from those who rejected it, pursuing after dark choices."
(For it will be like the parable when the bridegroom shut the door on those who had no oil (light). (Matthew 25:10-11) They did not value the oil in their lamps and when the time came their lamps had no light and the awareness of the importance came too late. As a result, they missed their time as they were not permitted to enter in.)
"False apostles will be uncovered as I raise up a fresh apostolic order that will declare great truth. Many things will not be able to hide in the light. Great healing will come forth in the light as it dispels the darkness of situations and the darkness of depression will be removed from them. For my joy will cover and consume the sadness hovering them.”
“You may say why the light? Because I am preserving and reserving a people even generations to come for the days to come. They will manifest the salt and the light on this earth. My preservation will become a standard against the works of the enemy. My salt will preserve and activate pure streams of my glory. Because that which I am preserving I am establishing. My truth preserves and will deal with many issues of the day. I am salting down some things in this hour so that they will be preserved. I am bringing them into a time appointed that I will bring a people forth who were once in darkness to become light to others. There are those who were accused of being dark but they were only shrouded in darkness and now they will see the light of day come upon them and walk in the light of the moment. Great healing and wholeness will come forth even from those who were previously seen as being dark. For I will blow the wind of my breath upon them and they shall live says the Lord. People bound with addictions will be transformed by the power of light. Darkness will be broken off their minds and the
light of my glory will break them free.”
Isaiah 45:7-8 (Amp) I form the light and create darkness, I make peace [national well-being] and I create [physical] a]">[a]evil (calamity); I am the Lord, Who does all these things. Let fall in showers, you heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness [the pure, spiritual, heaven-born possibilities that have their foundation in the holy being of God]; let the earth open, and let them [skies and earth] sprout forth salvation, and let righteousness germinate and spring up [as plants do] together; I the Lord have created it.
Matthew 5:13-14 (Amp) You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.
May God Bless you and may the light of God shine upon you unlike ever before!
Word of the Lord for 2015: Part 2
A Separation of the Past and Present:
A line of separation is being drawn between your past (2014) and your now (2015). Now is the time to turn from the past recognizing that it can no longer limit your present nor hinder your future. Walk in the moment and embrace the future that is before you. This is the most significant time of your life and you owe this time everything you have in order to proceed into the manifestation that awaits you. Exit this year letting go of past frustrations. Don't allow them to marginalize you, delay you, or hold you back from achieving the fulfillment of the coming promises. Look with eyes of great expectancy. This is not a year for the disappointments of your past to be entangled with what is before you. What you prepare for will be measured by what you do, what you say, and how you see it.
A Fresh Mindset:
God is releasing a pattern for a mindset that will impact how we achieve based on how we perceive. By allowing our past mindset to rule present thinking we limit our future and become a great hindrance to our ability to access newly present possibilities. We must have an outlook that carries renewed faith and the momentum to blaze new trails and open new doors. The uniqueness of this time will call forth a new day anointing that can create new atmospheres around us. As a result sweeping changes will show themselves in the face of limited circumstances, but our connecting to the plumb line of His spirit will transform us in the presence of His glory. The old guard of religious systems that has dictated in the past will no longer have jurisdictional authority over today’s people whether it be political, financial, or otherwise. Personal circumstances and even the way things have been in times past are now rapidly changing. Those who have waited and endured will see the harvest of seeds planted and the results of the prayers that watered the process.
Isaiah 9:3-4 (NASB) “You shall multiply the nation, You shall increase their gladness; They will be glad in Your presence As with the gladness of harvest, As men rejoice when they divide the spoil. 4 For You shall break the yoke of their burden and the staff on their shoulders, The rod of their oppressor, as at the battle of Midian.”
Breaking the Yokes of Delusion & Moving in God’s Perfect Timing:
This year brings with it a reality that will break the yoke of delusion off the minds of God’s people. Many will awake from the reality of what they feared they could not overcome to find that the delusion has been cleared like a smoke and the way out revealed. In 2015 the chains will be broken and many will feel as if they awoke from a deep sleep. A sleep where they fought for a way out only to awake to divine direction with inroads prepared by the very hands of God. “For I am removing the sting of past experiences to help you fulfill accomplishments that you could not do on your own. Mark this time, because you will witness this year how I will transform time, move through time, and even redeem time in your lives.” He will release keys so that we will forge ahead no matter what is opposing us. God said that some of the greatest battles were won, because of timing. Time will play a key factor in how the year plays out. We are in a time when the tares will be easily identified. Many things will happen in accelerated moments of time.
His Healing in the Glory Realm and Medical Discoveries:
Many accomplishments and discoveries will be created and found in the area of healing and medical research. There will be great advancements of technology achieved. Some of them will come out of the hands of common people who will experience new understandings in cures and remedies of sickness (such as Lorenzo's oil). These cures will be revealed to those who will attest that it was revealed to them by the Lord.
Those who have suffered in areas of mental illness and those who are vexed by spirits of infirmity will experience deliverance with wholeness of mind and spirit during moves of God. Many manners of sickness will be removed under waves of Glory falling in services. In prayer I heard the Lord say, "For I have heard the cries of my people and I am coming down to deliver them out." Those who were previously bound with anxiety and fear will experience waves of Glory that will bring both peace and joy. We will see the breaking of the spirits of fear and torment off God’s people.
His joy will be evident in the presence of His Glory this will not be like or compared to previous moves of laughter. A peace will fall and settle upon the people and the joy of their salvation shall rest upon their hearts. Many will even attest to seeing angels enter a place and as a result a peace settled upon the people. There will be weeping but it will be tears of Joy, a entering into restful joy. In the Lord's presence will be joy unspeakable. As people go out to witness in hospitals and pray for the sick angels will accompany them. Many will be healed in services and prayer meetings that will be recorded by the media.
Romans 15:13 “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”
The Marketplace from Mending to Making Nets:
This is the year where we will transition in the marketplace from mending nets to making networks. There will be a convergence of a new breed of people who will enter the financial arena working with groups who walk in demonstration carrying a depth of revelation concerning multiplication and increase. In the midst of this strong fusion will come a new flow of Holy Ghost power in the marketplace. There will be breakdown of financial systems but new strategies will direct with them on how to navigate through some of the financial woes.
When the Lord spoke to me about the marketplace He related to me this scripture. I looked at the Message Bible Translation and it spoke volumes. In 2015 there will be shifting of emphasis in the marketplace.
1 Peter 1:7 (Message Translation) “Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it's your faith, not your gold that God will have on display as evidence of his victory.”
Know that when some doors slammed shut in 2014 and it allowed us the ability to see doors that were open before us, even NOW. In 2015 the ways of Lord will be walked out through the lives of a sold-out people. We will see them in places of leadership, you will see them in remote places, regions and nations. We will see them in the marketplace fulfilling the plan and assignments that have been set before them by the Lord.
Word of the Lord for January 2015
"In the month of January, know I am calling you close. It's a month of bringing important elements together only as I can. There is a forming and fusing bringing key parts into place. So that which I have fashioned will reveal my Glory. I am mending hearts and healing hearts. It is a time to unite in your heart that which is necessary to move forward and let go of that which is holding you back. For where I am calling you now is necessary and meaningful."
"My hand is extended to lend strength to help you accomplish every endeavor that is placed before you. Even in this month I will move mightily among you in waves of Glory and times of peace to bring reconciliation now and throughout this year. Just believe! You will walk in realms of Glory and bring others into places that they have never thought existed. Look for opportunities where my presence will usher many into the Kingdom. As the river ebbs and flows watch the tide as it becomes strong in my presence. Catch the waves as they approach and you will find new strength covering you and increasing you. Don't just stand on the shore and wonder what it would look like and be like to become a part of it. But step out into what I am forming and creating in you."
"This is a time of recovery. Release the old and take in that which is new before you. Get ready to walk in new levels of understandings concerning the things that I need to unveil to you. For I am releasing great words of revelation and reconciliation that will unite a people to heed my call in this hour. Those who walk in obedience and faithfulness will inherit great favor and light. You will not lack spiritually and that will produce things in the physical that you could not have received upon your own. For I will add to you that which you need the most to obtain the things that are essential for you to grow. Watch for suddenlies, divine encounters, and visitations in my presence that will encourage you, empower you, and even transform your life. Look beyond where you are! Dare to dream! Watch how I will help you resolve many things that need closure. For my hand is extended to help you bring forth that which you need to conquer, to overcome and to fight the battles of the day."
Psalm 63:8 (English Standard Version) "My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me"
John 10:27-30 (ESV) "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one.”
We are excited about this New Year and how with it carries endless possibilities. This a year that we will overcome, deal with the challenges that face us while walking in new places of Glory. It is the Lord who is our strength and our deliverer. Thank you for your prayers, the seeds that you planted, your words of encouragement, as well as sharing powerful miracles that have occurred your lives.

WORD FOR 2015, PART 1
This is the year where the Glory of God will bring us into new levels of victory. Victories in battle as God moves in, among, and for His people. There will be overcoming battles by His Grace and His Glory as the kingdom of God expands and advances in ways only God could bring forth now.
Prophetic Insights: As many of us enter into this New Year we will find ourselves transitioning into the place God has called for us to be. So much ground has been covered and what we perceived to be lost has truly been gained. The Lord begin to release biblical downloads with answers unveiling several types and shadows. These prophetic sign posts indicate patterns that will help us proceed on our journey forward. Let me greatly encourage you by saying you have not been waiting in vain. Nor are you standing still while in pursuit of all that God is preparing for you. But it is time to be clear as to why things have occurred the way they have. Many have already moved into a new place in the Lord. However while advancing some didn't understand what was going on in the midst of heavy levels of warfare. For as they passed over from one phase to another the intimidating demonic resistance tried to deceive them and get them to give up what they had already received.
Now is the time to stand, not in a place where what God said to us can be tossed about by uncertainty and outside influences, but we must stand in the knowing. The knowing is a place where the opinions of others and even ourselves has no power to affect our stance on the promises of God, because they are now knowledge and truth instead of theories and possibilities. It’s time for us to know what God is saying and to remember the manner in which God is saying it. Observing with discerning eyes what is going on around us must be the order of the day. Proceed knowing that your very movements at this time carries a strength that you have not previously experienced.
While we were trying conquer challenges during 2014 it came to our attention that there were issues that needed to be resolved. We needed to receive emotional healing which included the need to forgive and release things that we could not even understand. But as we came to grips with our weaknesses the Lord revealed to us hidden strengths. Working through those experiences caused us to come to the end of ourselves, and now He has turned our morning into dancing!
As we cry out before the Lord with hearts of repentance we will make great strides. As we embrace the truth of Jesus Christ having passion for the things of God we find the strength to dismantle feelings of complacency and battle weariness. The reality is that we shall be a people that the Lord is establishing now. We can come willingly or we can come kicking and screaming while some are wandering around in circles searching for a way out. Those with the greatest passion will be on the front lines, but know that your position doesn't exempt you from going through more of the perfecting process of grace. The others will be led by the spirit of God if they submit to the process to grow. These are major decisions that must be determined in the hearts of God’s people. Those that say I am not apart this because I am above this, or those who say I don't need the Lord’s help will find themselves in painful experiences until they submit willingly to God. We are approaching serious times and the Lord is purifying His people.
For those who pressed into the things of God harder, stronger, and more determined, God pressed out of them things that were no longer needed and replaced them with spiritual strengths that will become a catalyst in the times ahead. We have become more aware of why our circumstances played out the way that they did. Things that we felt would have benefited us were sometimes withheld because, if those things had been prematurely released it would have altered the course of our destiny. “Why?”, because we had no idea what was coming in 2015.
His Words: “As you look out at what lies beyond this point you will be greeted by the image of my Glory. As you enter in, you will find that every process that you passed through has brought you to the place of My grace and My glory. Now you are on the brink of seeing great things fulfilled before you. Pick up from here for there is much to be accomplished, and you will marvel as the Kingdom advances. For it will touch and affect everything it passes over. New sweeps and changes are on the way. As I refine and purify my people I will work in them, through them, and for them. Prepare yourselves for all eyes will be upon you and that which I have placed in you are the keys to overcoming and the wisdom to war.”
1 Peter 5:8-11 (KJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 5:8-11 The Message Translation: Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.
One of my first downloads was in the Book of Esther. As we transition into 2015 we will find ourselves amongst some twist and turns. Esther best illustrates the narrative of an overcoming people who must deal with the enemies of their day. At a close glance it carries so many significant meanings and subplots involving the greatest achievements in its teaching. All of this as a backdrop of kingdom building. The types and shadows revealed will uncover a brilliant wisdom that we must walk out in order to conquer the challenges ahead.
The Lord said to me: There will be great victories we will experience as we deal with the enemy within us, the enemy within the kingdom, and the enemy at the gate.
Dealing with the enemy within us-Level 1:
As individuals of the kingdom we must go through the process of growth and maturity. In our realization we see that through necessary change we will come out of old mindsets, religious concepts, and self-righteous thinking that should have never been embraced. We will be challenged to remove old habits, attitudes, and behavior that we have allowed to remain that kept us from progressing. We will see ourselves in how we deal with others and the adjustments we need to make. This will mark a time where we will deal with these issues or future consequences of those issues will begin to be more visible. For the days of thinking that the Lord can be manipulated are over. The truth and the revelation that will be presented to us by the Lord will purge us. This is an Esther purification and a true revival will be the result of it in the midst of true repentance.
There will be those who the Lord is raising up with words of resolve, healing and deliverance that will ignite the hearts of the people to desire higher levels of teaching with greater levels of anointing. These old ways must be removed in order to grow and mature. The Glory of the Lord moving forward at increased levels will sweep over our lives for good. This is another level of grace that will be strong in this hour. More Grace = More Glory. The power to overcome will be real and tangible in worship, in prayer, and in times of crying out. A boldness will rise up in the truth of God's love and will birth forth those who are ready to move forward. This is where family and personal relationships will be restored. Many strongholds will be removed with generational curses broken.
Dealing with the enemy in the Kingdom-Level 2:
Level 2 deals with the kingdom. The kingdom represents every form of expansion from those inhabitants who have just come into it to those who have progressed on higher realms. From places of worship to all parts of the body of Christ. It is where we pick up our spiritual responsibility and are accountability in areas of leadership and servitude. It is the place we offer our service to others while walking out God’s plans and purposes according to His standard. In the book of Esther, Haman was an enemy to the People of God. Despite his position he set off in his agenda to destroy God's people. Haman began manipulating his position to make God’s chosen people appear to be the enemy, when in reality he was the actual enemy. He was an enemy to the kingdom, to the king, and to God’s people. In 2015 we will see an “Esther people” come forth to uncover the Haman’s of today and their self-seeking agenda within the church. There will emerge an apostolic strength with a prophetic anointing that will impact the future and bring the current reality into apostolic order with God’s prophetic vision for the church. This movement will deal with church politics, areas of control, and restore sound doctrine within the church walls. More outreach efforts will be realized because the emphasis will focus on unity and compassion for the less fortunate. The need to touch those outside the walls of the church will spread like a revival fire fanned by the moves of evangelism. Angelic assistance will shift church atmospheres. Watch for changes within leadership that will began to happen in house groups, prayer groups, and within the local churches. The Lord said clearly that the move that we see will not be focused on individuals but corporately ushered in by those who are hungry and willing to be conduits of His life. There will be a strong corporate anointing with power amongst the team. In 2015, there will be great mysteries that will unlock the significance of the Jewish heritage and within it provide specific strategies to overcome specific enemies of this day. The time from the feast of Purim to Passover will be remembered by many as the greatest time of 2015. In this New Year history will be marked with highly significant events.
Dealing with enemy at the Gate-Level 3:
Level 3 is concerning the gates. In Esther’s time at the city gates of the kingdom, the elders sat positioned. Business transactions were made, various judicial rulings, and public announcements were discussed and decreed. The gate was also where the two servants plotted to kill the king, but Mordechai overheard it and informed Esther of the plan. At this level that which happens at the gate carries the power to impact the community from various levels in government. Social unrest and many other things can be traced back to the gate where key decisions were made and key events took place. As the people of God change (Level 1) and the Kingdom moves forward as one voice (Level 2), we will see it impact our communities (Level 3). From the gates of the city to the gates of nations troubled by economic woes and violence there are clear indications that many enemies have positioned themselves at gate. From the local gates to the gates of the White House. The Lord himself will begin to shake these gates. The convergence of people declaring righteousness will conflict with the enemies of our day. We will have to deal with the gate enemies of poverty to the gate enemies of abortion. These things will be changed by a people transformed, by the Spirit of God, and a kingdom empowered. When we become changed at level 1 we will affect level 2 and ultimately the effects of each level will affect each other. This is the time were the people of God will begin to understand that we will either become an answer to these pressing issues or just become a part of the problem. Prayer, worship, and evangelism will affect the gates as well, but it will be by His grace and glory that regions will be shifted.
The Company of One-Operating out of a Divine Synergy:
The Lord began to talk about the rising up of a company of leaders who would share revelation knowledge and release strategies in various methods, modes, and realms for the training and preparation of an end-time army. There will consist of various tribes gathered together carrying various expertise, gifting’s, and anointing’s with the power to destroy evil principalities that have not yet been conquered. Those who are of one heart, one spirit, and of one mind will come forth to battle in heavenly realms in 2015. I asked the Lord, what did the one stand for, His answer was, “I am the one.” And He is gathering one people who will walk in a divine synergy. Synergy means with the interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual efforts. This company will move in levels of synergy with God and one another to accomplish impossible things, and the glory of God will be heavy in the midst of them.
Ephesians 4:4-8 “There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore a]">[a]it says, “When He ascended on high, He led captive a host of captives, And He gave gifts to men.”
Word of the Lord for 2015 Part 2 soon follow and January’s Word soon to come!
