Word of the Lord for August 2014
The Lord said that August will be a month where He will set order, and things will be “so ordered in the courts heaven” by Him the judge of all. For this will be vital in this coming season.
Psalms 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Isaiah 37:31-32 "The surviving remnant of the house of Judah will again take root downward and bear fruit upward. 32"For out of Jerusalem will go forth a remnant and out of Mount Zion survivors. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this."
There are things that the Lord is ordering now. So that all things can be brought into proper alignment with His will. This is a month that prior plans will begin to be walked out and fresh plans will be set in motion by the hand of the Lord. Time is short and as things fall into place we will see the results of that which was growing beneath the surface and is now ready to be manifested openly. Seeds planted early this year have taken root and will now bear fruit. For the Lord is setting things in place. This will mark a time when unjust weights will be balanced because that which was previously hindering God’s promise has been broken. He has broken it by His own hand, and He has defeated our enemies. However He is now challenging us to be bold and determined concerning the things that concern Him.
In all that we must do, we must be determined within our hearts and minds to see those things accomplished. We must earnestly contend for the faith. Major things are being activated and stirred up in this hour. For Abba will have a determined people, in this determined hour to do the work that is before us. This will mark a time of the early harvest in which what must be done will be done. We must continue in the work of the kingdom according to His pattern. (I noticed during the study of this word that the word “order” was used in conjunction to the construction of the tabernacle.) This reveals that we about to see the conclusion of the tipping point and we will begin to see the words God spoke come alive and move into a place of fulfillment.
“The defining moments that will occur in the month of August will unveil a chain of events that will not only point to but define my purposes. You will understand more clearly what I have previously promised and purposed before the foundation of the earth. You will fully know why in this season that they have been so ordered and set in motion by my own hand. For I have a mandate, a people and I have determined a set order of time for these things to fall into place and I will not be denied. I am setting things in order and lining them up according to my plans so that my people will move in the right direction at the right time.” (See Footnotes 1).
“Remember that when you keep the sayings and teachings of my word and build your house upon them. When the winds and rains blow from the approaching storms that will come you will be strengthen by my truth, and you will persevere in my presence even in the times to come. For my word will keep you and guide you through trying times, know with a surety that though the grass withers and the flower fades my word will last forever.” (Mt.7:24-26, Isaiah 40:8)
“When your lives are built upon the truth of my word you will be established, and you will find peace which will bring comfort to your heart. Allow it to cover you and be clothed in it. Wear it like a garment to keep you no matter what season you may enter in now and throughout eternity. August will bring with it a growth and a maturity for my people. In it my purposes will come forth according to my patterns, carrying with it the petitions and prayers of my people. It will stand strong in my ways persevering against the deceptions of the day. Carrying with it the understanding that my power is being prepared for the preservation of souls to come. “
“It will bear a sound of the echoing of my coming that will ring out over the land. It is my sound saying, “It is so ordered and it shall be done.” It is also a battle cry across the land saying, “My kingdom come and my will be done on this earth in this time.” My army shall move forth as a mighty army ready for the coming of this day.”
“So be ye ready for the battle for you will fight and it will mark a new victory, no matter how it seems. This harvest of souls are being prepared and set forth in this time and the word sent out for them will not return void. There will be forward movement of the advancement to bring forth the kingdom and it shall expand in this time. The order has gone out, you will hear the sound of the decree and your hearts will burn for its fulfillment. The battle that is being waged now is the battle for the hearts of men, it is so ordered and it shall be done.”
“The purpose for alignment with my cause has increased and the urgency is of great importance. In the heat of the battle spoils will be released, purposes shall be accomplished, my way will be upright, and will direct my people miraculously. Finances and resources will be granted and will come forth so that my word may be accomplished. There will be supernatural manifestations that will come into the hands of those who will not necessarily see tangible finances but I will personally see to them being watered spiritually and naturally in this season. There will be favor upon the left and upon the right and the work of my hands will come forth in mighty ways. Which symbolizes that even now I am gathering a people for a time ordered and a dispensation to come. For I will need them and raise them up for they will be nourished by those who have gone before them.”
“There is a gathering within the gathering, a healing in the midst of the healing, and a deliverance within those who will aid in delivering others. For they will be snatched out of the fire with only the smell of smoke upon them. For there is a work within the working, as the wheels within the wheels roll forward to accomplish the work that must be done. This is what you saw by vision.” (I saw a vision that looked like Ezekiel Chapter 1.) “This is the work of my hands that I have ordered through time and will in times to come.”
His Words for the Marketplace:
“I will ignite the marketplace and set it ablaze with a mighty release of my resources. Goods, services, and building materials for the betterment of the coming work. For I have appointed those with business acumen from within and without this venue to get things done quickly. Much will be accomplished and this testimony will spread amongst men, “That as they sought me they were made to prosper.” There will be those who will sow and those who will gather and build for the sake of the kingdom. For I shall increase the hands of those who have heard the cries of my people and have set their hearts to help and release to others. It will be a sign and a testimony to what will take place. For I have so ordered it in the heavens and it will come forth upon this earth for my glory.”
“It will be said that even in the midst of confusion and chaos amongst the nations that I set my hands upon those whose hearts were crying out towards me, and I reverse and changed their circumstances overnight. Those near and far will know it was my righteous judgments that I have set in motion to transfer the wealth of wicked men into the hands of the just. For their substance will be like the chaff that will blow away in the midst of trouble, and the blowing will unveil lies and uncover dishonesty. I will speak to angels who will scatter amongst the righteous good seeds and water from the heavens that will yield a bumper crop. So that souls to come into the kingdom for a fulfillment of my promises to assist in this great harvest. Some monies will go forth into foreign fields for missions and even to feed those who are in famine. My kingdom will come forth and harvest will be the portion of those who hearts are turned towards me.”
His Final Word:
“In this time men will see and understand revelation they have yet to fully know and fully understand. These things have been decreed and declared and now they are being set in motion. I shall perform these things and many will later understand that the Zeal of their Lord has accomplished this. It will be spoken in this time and in the times to come. Many of these things will even line up with September’s coming feasts and will reveal the fulfillment of my word to my beloved ones.” (See Footnotes 2 also Isaiah 9:7, Isaiah 37:31-32)

2.) The Zeal of the Lord will accomplish this:
Pulpit Commentary: The meaning is that God’s zealous love and care for his people will effect their complete restoration to prosperity and glory, difficult as it was at the time to imagine such a restoration,
Another Source: This simply means that God guarantees that prophesies mentioned earlier will be fulfilled.
This is how the Lord explained it to me this way: “When I make good on my promises, it is with great zeal (power), that I bring forth what I have spoken. It carries such strength with it that the very work of my hands remove everything that is trying to hinder out of its path (it obliterates any obstructing hindrances.) People will see and say it was a work of the Lord and know that man had no part in it.
Word of the Lord for July 2014
Mark 13:37 KJV And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
Luke 21:36 KJV Watch ye therefore, and pray always , that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass , and to stand before the Son of man.
Watch & Pray
We are in an hour where the WATCH is of paramount importance. If it were ever a time for the keepers of the watch it is now (2 Kings 11: 5-7). If we look at the things taking place around the world like the kidnapping of three Hebrew boys, Russia's occupation in the Ukraine, and the conflict in Iraq with Syria we don't need a prophet to tell us that trouble is looming over our nations. We must also awake to the fact the Lord is coming to the churches, and judgment will begin in the house of the Lord.
PRAYER is the necessity of the hour. In this day, we are to be those who understand a day without prayer is a day without light, peace and the understanding of things to come as we navigate through the times we are in. Prayer is not just a natural part of our everyday existence, without it we will not understand what is going on around us and what is fast approaching. We are in a time-zone of a myriad of events naturally and spiritually. The big question is, "How will all this play out?", and the bigger question is, "Are we prepared for what we will see between now and the year's end?". What are the prophetic glimpses that will be revealed to us as we move forward to the Head of the Year?
Let me say this that I believe in my spirit that we are on the verge of the most vital and life-changing movements of prayer that we have seen at this time. Coupled with worship, prayer will ultimately move us into the revival awakenings. But to close our eyes to the approaching trouble would be looking at the matter from only one side of the perspceptive.
The reality is that time is in acceleration mode, everything is moving swiftly. We must stay on task with everything right now and not become distracted with everyday frustrations. We must also stay positioned before His presence. Moving in step and aligned to the Father so that we will be right where we need to be in our confession of faith to believe, achieve, and receive all that He has for us.
Focusing Our Eyes
The Lord said something very profound to me. Many of us are already in a place of manifestation and receivership of His promises. As we look in the natural everything is not fully revealed to us, but as we pray, "Lord, Open my eyes!". We will see the big picture which will provide us with key elements on how to proceed and how to operate from a place of victory. In the Spirit realm there is a heighten sense of awareness to what we have obtained to help us understand how to work out the directives that are before us. Through prayer we receive major strategies of how to deal with the enemies tactics. Our enhanced vision will move us forward with a trust and a expectation that the battle is won. Unifying with the understanding that the fight is not ours but it belongs to the Lord of Host.
2 Kings 6:15-17 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early , and gone forth , behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do ? And he answered , Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed , and said , LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see . And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
Once we refocus to freedom we will see things from His perspective and walk in the fullness of His grace. Once Elisha prayed for his servant it changed the dynamic if things. It is vital for us to pray into our situations so we may properly assess our lives. We pray asking the Father for his wisdom so that our direction and our steps may be ordered. Once we see we must hear and obey the voice of the Lord's instruction. For it will fully benefit us both spiritually and naturally as it directs our next set of actions. The enemy's tactic is to break down the faith of those seeking and waiting before the Lord in order to cause frustration within them. The enemy wants to get the believer to abandon his position and walk away from the true will of the Lord.
"Beloved I desire for you to come into a deeper understanding through simple truths so that these revelations may come alive in you now. They are given to you to utilize and walk out for the sake of the Kingdom. The time is now to know how to understand and to implement these things. This is not a time to put your hands to the plow and look back. For I am placing these things in you: as living and breathing revelation that you may put on and allow it to take on new life and understanding. You are living in times where the purposes of my word will be fulfilled. So that a key set of preparations will take place and take hold. Walk them out in this time to see ultimate results. Watch how things done previously that wouldn't have worked before will be fulfilled for my glory."
"These things are coming forth in their proper seasons. Nothing is late because this is the time ordered. It is a time of fulfillment and if it had been before time it wouldn't have happened as it should. For I prepared a time of revealing and a time of implementation. It has now come and all things are aligning now to come to pass. It's about a destiny of a people in the proper time. A work in it's ordered season and the result of it which is now coming into fulfillment. Yes, it is new but carries within it the pattern of the old. It speaks of that which is to come and not just old accomplishments. The new has to do with those who will walk in new mindsets and a newness of passion to fulfill my purposes. That is new because it has a new people, those who are rising up to hear the sound that I am echoing in this hour."
"For I have given you power to believe and speak beyond the heavens and to declare things also upon this earth so that you may know my truth in a greater depth and draw it nigh to your heart. See it, believe it, so that you can see what I am preparing for you in this hour because I hath decreed it and ordained it to be so. Stretch out to reach beyond where you have been going, to go further, see clearer and recognize that I am showing you a way that will direct your path. For I am your power source and you must stay connected to me. For when you are close to me you are charged and there is no fear in you. But when you are pulled away by the busyness of the day you become weak and unable to do all that I have commanded you to do. So draw near and don’t pull back. For there is so much for you to know now. My ways are essential for you to overcome great obstacles. My way is the walk of the upright and within it are endless possibilities."
"The transformation is taking place and the time is now. And it shall blaze a path for the future moves to come, it has been prayed for and cried out for and now it shall be fulfilled in this season. It is catching fire now going into the Head of the Year 5775. Know that everything is being set in place and will be aligned with the fulfillment of this age.
John 4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
"Do not say four months then the harvest will come, but I say unto you, "Look out upon the fields for they are already white unto Harvest." For I am accelerating the time, and I am bringing harvest now! Look into the realm of the Spirit. Can you not see it? Can you not understand it is now? The future time is occurring now. The shift has taken place. It is here for those of you who will with the eyes of faith lay hold to my promises. You can and will possess it early because you have entered into a place of trust in me that pulls into the present that which is to come. Others will catch up and see and receive it soon afterward. For I have prepared a time right now for those who will believe and dare to see what can be now."
"The key is receiving what I am doing in this hour with a sincere heart crying out for me. One who is walking upright and in right standing with me will possess their inheritance. Even those who with hearts of true repentance that will turn their ways and cry out for me will receive. I am looking for those with clean hands and with pure hearts humbled before me . For I am changing time, creating time, and I am redeeming time. For I am moving in time and even working out time for those who will catch the wind of the Spirit and grab hold to what I am saying now."
"There is a cleansing going on in the lives of my people for I am calling those who are in prayer and intercession. Will my people heed the call? If you press in and seek me in this hour I shall be found and I shall begin to talk to you concerning the things that are so important to understanding my words and my ways. As you read my word this day, says the Lord, you shall understand and see things that you not seen and understand those things you have not known. See, Read, and Embrace so that you may enter into new realms of revelation. In it you will see Me and in it you will see You and I will reveal to you the similarities."
"This is a time when my people must be honest with themselves as to, "How they have prepared for my coming?", "How have they prepared for the reaping of the Harvest?", and "How have they prepared their loved ones?". These are issues weighing in the balance. Will you have enough oil to get through the times ahead? Are you so sure that you have what you need for your journey? These are questions to be answered in this hour. Are you concerned about the riches of the kingdom, or that which is achieved cunningly by man's hands? Do not be disillusioned in this hour men will follow after things that will only satisfy their lust. Do you not hear the cry of the watchman?"
"There will be those who will say we survived by following the teachings of the gospel, by walking in faith, living in integrity and upholding a spirit of Holiness in our lives. When we lost our way we cried out and we were lead by the principles that kept us in times past. It was having a broken spirit and contrite heart that carried us through the most difficult struggles we encountered. Awaken others to the reality that there is a battle sounding in the distance and it is time to gird up the loins of your minds. Renew your hope in the things that speak of my love which is drawing you to a greater calling and purpose. I am calling and wooing those who have given up and my heart is tender towards them. Have you not cried for them? Bring them to me. Those who have fallen and those who are confused bring them to me, for my heart cries for them."
1 Corinthians 16:13 KJV Watch ye , stand fast in the faith, quit you like men , be strong .
"Let me remind you, do not allow fear nor frustration to overwhelm you. As my army is gathering and growing, others are being set in place. Battles are being waged in the heavenly realms. Know that you have entered into a time of battles. You will fight wielding your faith as a weapon, and carrying your praise as a shield and buckler as you march towards victory. Understand that which opposes you now wants to get you off focused and emotionally driven but quit ye like men, and walk out the strength that I have given you to stand your ground. Incline your ear to hear your orders as I release them to you. This is a time to be disciplined and unwavering in your faith. No matter what you see remember I am working behind the scenes and the promises of my people will be realized."
In prayer I saw great negotiations going on in the heavenly realm. Transactions were purchased by those who had been faithful in Him. Heavenly acquisitions and new territories were being taken for the Kingdom. There was a buzz about it in the realm of the spirit, and I heard the voice of the Lord say, "For Twenty one days."

Word of the Lord for June 2014
This month comes with great responsibility. In fact how we respond to what we are required to do and what we have been assigned to do will determine the impact and the path. A path that will run it's course during the rest of the year. With the year being at it's mid-point, Rosh Hashana being three months down the road, and Pentacost being now(June 8th) things that are before us and what we do with them will determine our future progress. During this window of time, we will encounter manifestation that will directly intersect our purpose and destiny.
The Lord used the analogy of a football game saying that in this season we are literally at "halftime." What we do now will speak for us in this hour. When we look at a game halftime is the most important time in the course of that game. It is the time in which no matter the score one has a second chance to regain the momentum to win. What is done in the second half determines the outcome of the game. When we look at it in the perspective of kingdom advancement it is not a game, it's serious, and a pivotal time in our history.
Timing in this month is everything. The Father has set some things in place that will not be changed, for they are sure. They have already been settled in the mind of God. There will be choices that will come before us, but we must decide before moving forward. Decisions Determine Outcome (DDO). Last month our cry for Wisdom continues it is the principle thing that we must walk in to move along the course that is set before us.
"You have been empowered by your positioning. You are coming into a time when when there will be transitions that will make way for even greater transitions. The movement now should be steady and consistent: don't get distracted. Keep your consistency in what you do and that diligence will be what will keep you on track. I have positioned you to move you forward, to advance you and even to protect you. I have placed very key items of strategy upon your path and there are ways of escape for those who walk in obedience. As you proceed and the enemy strikes you will find yourself several steps ahead, but if you get distracted your inability to move forward it will open you up for unnecessary warfare. Don't ask why, when, or where is it coming from. Keep your place in Me. Forward movement."
"There will be a severing between the sacred and profane. I am been long suffering and your life's greatest challenges will cleanse you and restore my grace which will be your power to overcome. The uncomfortableness that upon you is the result of desiring to accomplish goals and plans. These must be placed on the drawing board of your lives, businesses, even upon your place of worship. Necessary birthing is taking place. Your passion for the things of the kingdom must overcome the flesh in this season. That which you have carried over in this time which are the fleshly things of the world conflict with the things of the Spirit. But know that your life does intertwine with your destiny, look again, see again and breath again."
"When I spoke the word significant, I was talking about you. I have placed much in you and you have yet to fulfill your legacy. Securely hold on to what I have spoken over your life. As you turn the pages of your future you'll then understand how and why things occurred in your life. Your next challenge is just a stepping stone to your true revealing. Always speak truth, smile in the face of adversity, bless your enemies, and love all! Carry the wisdom that you learn along the way like a precious garment. Wear integrity well. Let no one determine for you what you are but know that because I created you and you were made for the days to come. It has been settled in the heavens, spoke by angels, revealed by the prophet's, tested by men, set forth before the foundations of the earth. Now, walk it out! You were made for this! Look in the mirror and see my glory and what I have formed in you from the beginning of time."
Ephesians 2:8-10 "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them."
"There is a fear of failure that has been looming over some of you and you must strike the ground many times. Pursue, pursue, overtake and overcome opposing forces that face you. Build, pray, and repair that which needs to mended so that my work may come forth in full measure. I am preparing in this hour those who are like-minded and like-spirited to work together. Their desire is to accomplish that which concerns their destiny and the work ahead is also intertwined because I am building and strengthening a kingdom structure within the hearts and the minds of the people. Now it is taking form in the natural and I am breathing upon it by my spirit.."
"Unity has it's advantages especially with like-spirited, like-minded, and like-hearted people. See the unity with those that surround you as a blessing from Heaven; people who will under-gird, and cry out on your behalf. Be a giver as much as a receiver because anything that carries that much value in life needs to be respected and reciprocated. I am raising up an army and there is a great purpose for its gathering. Battle plans and battle lines have already being strategized by me, says the Lord. You have have established a great beachhead. Much ground has been taken in the Spirit. Stand firm in your convictions. It will be my grace that will carry you into victory."
Ephesians 4: 13-17 "But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. For this reason it says, "Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you.Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.…"
"The issue is not to know everything that you must do but activate your faith along with diligent fervent prayer, with strong conviction in your heart and I will set things in motion. Have a willing heart and a determined spirit to fulfill the calling upon your life. This is not the starting point but it is a breaking point. Look with my eyes at the path before you and advance. It is my cause, the cause for Christ that will lead you and guide you. It is my grace which carries power and the ability to do more now. It's a new now and a significant season. In times past you cried out you asked, "Now God?"."
"Now my beloved, because your destiny is set on manifestation mode and the momentum is building. I shall impart to you and even activate it in your the life, for they are the purposes of my Will in the earth. Embrace that which I am placing before. Don't try to figure it out ahead of the time, but rely upon your God. As you walk you will know the way. I have already placed it in you, it is time sensitive to your assignment and it is attached to you with the true loyalties that I originally purposed in you before the foundation of the earth. It shall be done by those whose hearts are lined up with work of the hour and the time is now. I will not be denied, it will work , and it will be accomplished."
(This is from me that I was showed by Revelation in Prayer)
This is what I call a type of "Time Redemption." It is a recovery of time, a recovery of a people, and a recovery of purposes concerning the original intent that the Lord had purposed for His people before the foundation of the earth. It is a restoring of the years that the canker worm, the palmer worm and the caterpillar ate up. The Lord showed me a resurfacing and returning of gifts, abilities, and wisdom. Things recovered that had laid dormant because of compromise and sin in the lives of the people. Because they cried out and returned back to the things of the Lord, and repented; restoration came, recovery came, and redemption came. Our walk has everything to do with knowing and understanding the fullness of how to accomplish the work before us. When we cry out and allow God to place us back on the path of original intent then we find that we can recover time. We are returning, we are being refined, and we are now more than ever finding our way.
Isaiah 35:8-9 "A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it. 9No lion will be there, Nor will any vicious beast go up on it; These will not be found there. But the redeemed will walk there,…"
"This is a not a time to call me to you but for you to come to me. There is a distinct difference. The most important things that you need now will come in that reaching out for me. In the realization that I am your key to getting everything in order according to the way I had always purposed for it to be. This is happening now in this season and is giving freely to those who will walk in my ways and receive my wisdom that I am releasing in this hour. Time is accelerating and the time can be restored, recovered and redeemed to that which I have established. It will be replenished and renewed. There is a pruning and cutting back that must take place in the of areas of compromise that have become comfort zones in the face of great change and reformation. This is a time to return to the things of that represent my heart, the things of the Lord. Enter into my joy! Rejoice with songs of joy for I am visiting my people and my hand is moving mightily to save and restore upon the land. The floodgates will open at the mention of my name as you sing New Songs of Zion."
Word of the Lord for May 2014
There was a time in my younger days when I was seeking to hear from the Lord concerning my life, and the course I should take. While in my seek the Lord said to me not to look for a new word. He made it clear that the only word He was going to release over my life was that it was time to see the manifestation of everything that He had already spoken concerning me. At this time God is saying the exact same thing to us all. The Lord said clearly, "Manifestation is Now!" During the months of May and June everything that God has spoken over his people is being released. My belief is that each of us will receive our own release concerning very specific things that will take place in our own lives. I found my prayers shifting to “Lord help us to properly execute all that we are being called to do in light of this release." In the midst of that prayer new revelation began to pour out like water over my soul.
After falling asleep while in prayer I entered into a room with sign over it saying “Wisdom”. The Lord had me understand that once we receive the manifestation of His words we must walk in His wisdom. We must choose to enter in not with an air of achieving or arriving but with an open humility. Knowing that despite all things the Lord Most High has brought us into these great and precious promises. We must understand that everything that is being released carries much weight and great value. With this release a lot of things that were lost during the time of waiting will be restored.
Psalm 126:1-4 “When the LORD brought back the captive ones of Zion, We were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter and our tongue with joyful shouting; Then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."…The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad. Restore our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the South.
This time of recovery and manifestation will propel us into the next phase of our assignments concerning our lives, our destiny and a fulfillment of the Kingdom work that is before us. Some of the results of decisions made in haste which could have compromised our position spiritually will be recouped, but it is vital how we proceed from here. Many times we get excited when the prophetic word of the Lord is released to us. We hear the word of knowledge which lets us know that the prophet is speaking directly to us. The word of wisdom from the Lord is truly God's guidance, direction, and revelation given to us in a key time concerning His promises. Many times a word of wisdom carries within it the timings of God and the advancement of our destiny. It is His key word of recommendation for our lives. As we hear, receive, and walk in the winds of refreshing that has come upon our lives through His impartation of wisdom we can become changed by our circumstances.
We will not only enter into a manifestation, but also a restoration that carries with it deliverance and the power to recover. This is not just a mere returning of possessions but it is a recovery of valuable spiritual strength and acumen that will propel God's people. This will spark a return of that which they were originally purposed to do.
Prepare yourselves for angelic encounters and an arising of an Apostolic order of leadership that will boldly establish kingdom work in this hour. This will mark the hour of the great integrity of the Lord being restored in the house of the Lord. We are about to see a harvest of early kingdom accomplishments in trailblazing a path for future global intercession and evangelism. This is just the beginning compared to what is about to occur on that front as it impacts many regions on different levels.
There will be some major uncovering of plans that were set up in secret to compromise the integrity of righteousness in our nation. The consequences of those mistakes has placed our nation in jeopardy. Even in the midst of persecution coming upon His people we will see the hand of the Lord deal with the evil of our day. We will see the righteousness of God coming forth to deal with government leadership and nations. There will be a changing of the guard and incidents that will occur that will set fear in the hearts of men who have always believed that their power will protect them. Things will come up before the Lord and many will know that the Lord’s dealing is upon the church and upon the land. When the glory of the Lord is poured out in greater measure these are some of the signs and signals we will see. Know that the manifestation of the Lord’s promises is to prepare us for what is coming upon our nation in the future and on the world scene as well.
“Take the glory and light that I have poured upon you in this hour, and hold on to it. Allow it to renew your life and refresh your spirit.”
“I have prepared for you a path that you will need to walk out as this month progresses. So embrace the faith and favor that I have released upon you in this hour, so that you may obtain the necessities required at this time. The kind of favor that is being released will not only to get you where you need to be, but also to the place where you can overcome whatever obstacles are standing before you. It is my favor and grace that I have placed upon you to pass through those things that have once hindered, delayed and even tried to hold you back from making great strides. I want you to know that what you receive now has greater significance, being released in this season, than it would have been if it was given to you before. Now you are coming into a greater understanding, and the awareness of necessary things that you need to accomplish. In fact, you will change some priorities as a result of what you see as being important now.”
“So call upon me and seek me in this time. You, will hear me through my word and through my voice as I speak to your heart my wisdom. Even through the smallest of things will you hear me, because I am speaking to you and making my words to you clear and succinct. It is important for you to know what to do and how to initiate my plans so that you will be successful. Do not allow any barrage of attack to weary you to the point that you cannot overcome. Remember, I had placed in you all that you need. So press into prayer for in it you will find solace. Your greatest defense will be found on your knees. For I have given you the power to defeat, and to defend. You have the power to overthrow the works of the enemy before you. Much of the level of warfare that you have experienced has been as a result of the battles fought in heavenly realms. You will see advancement as this month progresses.”
“I have made you to sit in heavenly places far above all principalities and powers so as you are joined in position with me; greater will be your ability to overcome. Understanding your position by faith is key, being joined with me and being joined with your brethren, becoming one in the unity of the Faith. Don’t shrink back! Know that I have placed in your life the keys to open, the keys to lock out, and keys that will give you access into new avenues and ways to advance, to come forth, and to conquer, says the Lord.”
Ephesians 2:4-7 “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”
“This is the time to gather in the harvest of souls that will come in great numbers as I will establish a global move of evangelism in this hour. For I am moving on many fronts and through many nations raising up my army of warriors strong in intercession and carrying the power of my word as I disperse them throughout the nations declaring my name. For I will blaze a trail for the righteousness of my glory, that the gospel may be echoed across the lands.”
“So hold onto the assignments that I have placed before you. Rise up in the day of my power and light which I give freely unto those who will utilize my strength to bring souls into the kingdom. Rise up and see through my eyes, the plan that I am breathing new life into for this is just the beginning. It will gain momentum even through these coming days, weeks and months. Even in times of darkness, it will grow and none will hinder it's work. Don’t allow the little foxes of petty issues and emotional limitations to restrict your ability to move forward. Don’t allow the enemy to speak fear into your life causing confusion.”
“I have given you, eyes of faith to see and a heart to receive new sight and understanding as to all that is going on around you now. You must move forward progressively and continue to do everything now. I am preparing a remnant to lead many out of places of confusion and dark areas of doubt and defeat.”
I had an unusual dream about an uptick of extreme climate changes which we seem to be experiencing now but there were also earthquakes that were set off at an alarming rate. Pray around these extreme weather patterns.
These are regions that are on our watch list: Veracruz, Hawaii, Sumatra, Indonesia, Virginia, Philippines, Japan, Seattle, California, and The East Coast.
Continue to pray around the strong warlike atmosphere within and outside our borders. Iraq Iran, Russia and North Korea are on our watch list as we continue to pray for Israel. Pray around upheaval within leadership, even a surprise uncovering concerning the nation’s leaders in the European regions, but especially in Russia.
Word of the Lord for April 2014
There are times when I am in a seek before the Lord and he will begin to put down what I call bread crumbs. As I carefully follow them I come into the fullness of the revelation that He is showing me. A couple of days ago, He said that we were entering into the season to “rear up the tabernacle.” Immediately I thought about the significance of Passover as we are approaching the feast in the month of April. I found myself in the middle of a dream searching to find something that was valuable to me and others, and I had been assigned to go get it. In the midst of the journey I found out that I had gone beyond my course but it was in that place that I found an object of great value. I knew it was a “key bread crumb” telling me to keep going and that I will understand more as I continue to seek the Lord.
This morning in another dream a fresh bread crumb was found. A large group of people were looking into what appeared to be a time capsule. They started discussing what it is, where it was discovered, and why. The mystery of the time capsule appeared to be serious. But I felt future things would develop becoming more serious than the capsule itself. Although it required examination I was then urged to move beyond it so that I would not give way to distraction. I then inclined my ear to hear what God was saying concerning His people.
The term “rear up the tabernacle” means “to prepare, to set up, or to build the tabernacle,” while they were in the wilderness. The preparation entails the fastening of the sockets, the setting up the boards and putting the bars and the pillars in place. All necessary items were to be set in order. By allowing distractions, we exclude the vital answers needed so that we might stand in times like these. What we are seeing now in the world is the birthing of things that have been going on long before this time as a result of plans conceived in secret. The question is now, “What is the Lord saying?” and “What does He want us to plan for our future?”
The last bread crumb rested on the revelation that the Lord is calling His people out. Not just to say it but to walk in the sincerity of His purpose concerning His word and His wisdom as represents of Christ in the earth. We can’t claim to be a kingdom of priest in this hour and not walk in the integrity of what it represents. We have been operating out of the understanding of worshiping the Lord through the eyes of seeing the tabernacle of Moses but the Lord begin to reveal to me that we must grow and transition beyond that into the rebuilding and reestablishing of that which is to come, which is the Tabernacle of David.
His words: “I am calling you to consecrate yourselves, to seek me with all your heart, your soul and your mind. Because the resolve, the help that is needed now, the solution to the answers you seek, can only be found in my presence. There has been a lack of integrity that is now being restored amongst my people and I am holding them accountable to represent true intimacy and the abiding in me that will release deeper revelation that will dispel the deception and lies of man’s dogma, with it greater clarity will come. Much of what you see in the world carries confusion, chaos and fear. Without my presence many are trying to find peace and consolation. But my peace can be found in my word and in the realization of its meaning. The priority of seeking after things will continue yield to much frustration. But my peace will only be found in the place where my truth reigns in the mercy of my Love.”
“Make all necessary adjustments in order to gain access into where you need to be in me. There you will find strength and you will walk into realms that I have prepared for you to acquire at this time. Understand that even though the disciples had been with me and heard my teachings and received much revelation when they were in the boat with me and the wind and waves became strong and adverse that they did not have the faith needed to withstand the trouble. This is a time to be disciplined and allow me to build upon you what is required so that no matter what happens you will hold on in the face of adversity.”
“New paradigms and patterns are being developed for evangelism to deal with much of the perishing but it must begin with you carrying out my purposes and responding to the needs of others. You will only be able to bring others through what you have yourself overcome. The emphasis for laborers in the harvest field is much needed now and I am calling those who must stand accountable. I am looking for those who will lead in this endeavor, to assist others who will learn and come forth in great strength. The emphasis now is to walk in my love and lay down your life for the brethren, it is paramount. (1 John 3:16)”
“Many of you have asked how will your needs be met and how will to overcome the trouble that has seem to affect your circumstances. The keys to getting to the solutions are within your circumstances and will come out of your compassion to help direct others into the place where they will find me. Some of your solutions are contained in the assistance of others’ struggles. You are living in a time of great fulfillment, but you are a part of a whole, you are connected to others who are like-minded and like-spirited. Many have endured, others are waiting, and others have also paid a price. In the coming days you will walk through doors that have seem like walls to you in the past, others will follow, for I have ordained in you to be a testimony of my love.”
Word of the Lord for March 2014
I recently saw in the realm of the Spirit a vision where I was looking down at the landscape below. I focused on the traffic patterns of the land, the people below and the vehicles. They were moving very rapidly. As I observed it, the Lord began to speak to me concerning how the movement of what was going on was relevant to the momentum of His plan. I could see the detailed plan that was before us and how His purposes would be walked out in various areas, how the marketplace would affect the true church and the true church would be connected to the overall kingdom purposes in this hour.
He uttered to me: “Divine connections/Josephs Arising, Spiritual Pollination and the Corporate anointing. In these next three months, from March, April, May we will see how the three months and the three terms will work together and how they are related.” It is important to understand what has occurred and is happening on varying levels. Individuals will be arriving at their appointed times to accomplish their own purposes that will connect with others. Each will intertwine according to what the Father has placed in their hearts which will carry out key assignments that are connected to their destiny. (To say that we are all in the same place doing the same thing would not be a true statement.) But if we would envision a chess board with various dimensions, it would be a more apt description. Where we wind up has everything to do with our obedience to the Lord and our own determination to walk in the now of our lives, while refusing to be bound and restricted in our thinking based on things that played out in our past experiences.
This was His words to us:
“I have taken that which has been in the hands of the enemy and placed them where they rightly belong. Know that your inheritance is laid up before you. But you must take possession of that which is yours, says the Lord. This is so that the coming work maybe fully established concerning your life. That ground work must be embraced, that which is needed is before you. You must follow through because it is key to fulfilling your destiny. So as you see a changing of the guard, a change in the atmosphere of greater glory, and the fulfillment of my word which I have spoken to you and breathed upon you. I speak to you from the heavens into your very being to hold on with faith and diligence to what I have given you. It will be a witness to you and many others who have endured trials in the fiery furnace of affliction. It will testify that you have overcome and now having a mind to continue along the course as one coming out of the ashes. It is your time to be refreshed, restored and renewed. Many who have yet to receive it will say—I long to be free, I want to live again and they shall overcome and rejoice in the same liberty.”
“For this is a time when your position will shift from where you were waiting and believing, even believing yet declaring, to actually becoming. Be watchful of distractions and scenarios that will try to discourage you. This has to do with the level of warfare that is literally being waged against my people to convince you that things haven’t changed. But know these words are a part of a deception to try to get to give up what you have already received. Know that you already possess what you need and the warring has increased because of the seriousness of the work that you have entered into, which will accomplish great things. Don’t believe the lie. Address it forcefully and turn your face from it and remain in your place of faith and prayer before me. WAR against it and overcome it.”
1 Timothy 1:18 KJV This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
In my time of intercession and prayer, I begin to seek the Lord concerning this enemy who lie against God’s people, who has a problem with spiritual authority and takes words to twist and deceive. One who is haughty, arrogant and prideful. When you study Job 41st chapter, and Isaiah 27 as you look closely you will find that contained within it is the spirit of Leviathan. It is an enemy of spiritual authority whose passive-aggressive attacks come against those who have been called to God’s assignment to release the wisdom of God to His people. Know that there are ways to overcome it.
The wisdom and truth of God’s word, True Worship, the sword of the spirit (the word of God) when skillfully wielded against the deception that is spoken. These weapons have the ability to destroy its works. This spirit of Leviathan also uses control and manipulation in order to obtain high ranking positions. Religious condemnation that it insinuates tries to counter the very work and move of God.
It hates deliverance, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the gifts of the Spirit and will point skeptically to the flow of the God’s Glory and question’s: Is this really a move of God? It is also an accuser of the brethren. It is an end-time enemy. (This is my opinion but it was revealed to me in prayer, so you must search the scriptures, while becoming aware of these end-time enemies and address them. Move on and don’t allow fear to keep you from confronting these works of the enemy.) Luke 10:19, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (more on this on my website) http://www.carpenterstouch.org/Leviathan.html
“In this hour you will see a revealing of mysteries previously spoken of, which were hidden but now are becoming evident now in these end-times. The real truth is that my people are now being flooded with LIGHT. There is a purification process that many are coming through as many yield (humble themselves) before me. You are being prepared with the oil of my presence and the fragrances of intercession and true worship. I am stirring their gifts and understanding the truth of my word in a greater measure. This is a part of the fulfillment of great things to come. Be joined to me as my bride and you will experience great favor with me, says the Lord. But remember you wilI have great challenges to come and you must continue to walk in obedience with what I have taught you. Be aware that persecution will come. Know I have placed in you what you need to accomplish and overcome them. Disobedience and slothfulness will cloud your discernment. I am looking to you to be ready, to stay the course no matter what. Who is willing to give all for the sake of kingdom? Time is short and acceleration is the order of the day. A life poured out is key for a people to be delivered and saved. What a glorious time to be awaken, alive and willing to move forward with my will, my plans and my purposes.”
The mysteries of the gospel are now being revealed in the end-times. (Romans 16:25-27, Ephesians 3:3-5, Philippians 2:9-11.)
Romans 16:25-27 Now to Him Who is able to strengthen you in the faith which is in accordance with my Gospel and the preaching of (concerning) Jesus Christ (the Messiah), according to the revelation (the unveiling) of the mystery of the plan of redemption which was kept in silence and secret for long ages, But is now disclosed and through the prophetic Scriptures is made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, [to win them] to obedience to the faith, To [the] only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ (the Anointed One)! Amen (so be it).
1 Corinthians 2:7-10 (KJV) “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 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.
Concerning the three, Divine connections, Spiritual Pollination, and an Corporate Anointing
Over these next three months March, April and May there will an unveiling, revealing, complete healing and a sealing of that which I am doing in this season. The Lord said, “There will be a well of resources unveiled for my people that I have set in place in store for them. I have prepared these things for the hearts of those that will walk in humility and unity. Healing will come in the reality of truth that is being released to those who are willing to hear and obey accordingly. The sealing will take place in the glorious evidences of the Shekinah glory, in the infillings, in the realm of the spirit as you receive more, not just information, not just visitation but the Habitation of God in us.” (Ephesians 2:22)
Divine Connections:To the point that we are divinely connected to the Lord, we will be connected to others to fulfill divine assignments within the kingdom. This unity that will be a coming together will come with power because they are ordained of the Lord. It will be a gathering and a calling and even a joining for the purposes of the Lord to be completed, a foundation laid, and as an uprooting of a major stronghold in regions. It will be like a spring, then a brook, and a river flowing of living waters. The unity will form a unit (as in military term) forming to accomplish difficult issues as well as provide answers and address future crisis. These connections will be found in the marketplace to the local churches and those of means to set up future cities of refuges and as well to develop even storehouses. It will come from one group of believers to another group, from the connection of ministries to help communities, from the wealthy to those ministries. The need of finances will come to further advance the work within the local body. Within that the Joseph’s will arise to add to that which needs more strength and assistance. It is key to setting things in order and funding that which is important to kingdom expansion. Don’t look at these changes to be far from your everyday affairs, but know that they are interwoven and are vitally connected to parts of everything that is going on. As you connect you operate as part of the whole and as the whole is blessed and increased so shall we be.
Spiritual Pollination: How does the harvesting of any garden or crop come to yielding its best. One way is the process of pollination. But how does that look in the spirit operating in the body of Christ. Pollination is the process by which pollen is transferred in the reproduction of plants, thereby enabling fertilization and reproduction. So as the body of Christ comes together with one heart, one spirit, in one praise and one cry before the Lord. The flow of worship and the declaring of the God’s truth on His word and creates/births that new sound into the atmosphere which prepares a place for Open Heaven and revival fires to burn. The mutual enrichment, the anointing of Abba’s strength and heart is experienced by those who are hungry for the things of God. The greater the glory, the greater downpour of signs, wonders, and miracles, the faith is activated and the joy of the Lord is poured out like rain until all that are present become drenched.
Corporate Anointing: It is best experienced from a synergy of anointed people who have been strategically gathering into one place. They don’t have hidden agendas but they are drawn by the desire to become more like Him. They are eager to gather under an umbrella of worship. They are joined with a heart for reconciling people to their God. They are fearless and radical. They are ready to advance, implement, even to do battle in fervent watching/praying as the army of the Lord. You will see the fivefold ministry but these people are limited by titles but they are mighty weapons in the hand of our God. Amongst them you will see apostolic prophetic intercessors, watchmen, gatekeepers, those who are creative in the arts from dance to literal expressions of painting on canvas and much more. As the liberty and power of God enters the sanctuary the anointed presence of the Lord fills the temple of the place and of His people. These will be great times containing the ebb and flow of the Lord, and in the midst of it, will come healing, restoration and great times of refreshing. The people will come in one way and go out to never be the same as before.
“In this hour you will begin to see Gatherings where the heavens will touch the earth, and declare new realities! Days will quickly roll into weeks and weeks into months (during these next three months) some circumstances will occur so suddenly that one day you will find yourself here and literally overnight you will find yourself in a whole new place. Manifestation will come forth out of the Glory. Stay in my glory, says the Lord. Pray in the glory. This is a time to walk into and out from My Glory and there will come great favor, there will come my answers, and you will know that the time that I spoke to you in times past is NOW. For this is the set time, the appointed time, it is here before you, says the Lord.”
Psalm 102:13 “Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favor her, yea, the set time, is come.”
In my time of prayer the Lord said to pray fervently for the peace of Jerusalem. As we pray for her, have compassion upon her we will receive double-favor and the Joy of the Lord will be our portion. This is the time!!!
Intercessors pray concerning this situation about the Ukraine---the Lord spoke a word previously about coming conflicts between US and Russia/Putin. The link to follow that word in September 2012 is in the prophetic intercession at the end of the word.
Deep calleth unto Deep
February 17, 2014
There is a cleansing going on in the lives of my people—for I am calling out to them those who are in prayer and intercession—deep is now calling unto deep. Will my people heed the call? If you press in and seek me in this hour I shall be found and I shall begin to talk to you concerning the things that are so important to understanding my words and my ways. As you read my word this day, says the Lord, you shall understand and see things that you have not seen and understand those things you have not known. Read and embrace so that you may enter into new realms of revelation. In it you will see Me and in it you will see you and I will reveal to you the similarities.
Within these next three days, your eyes will see things you have not seen before and you will see with my understanding as you watch what I reveal to you even today and tomorrow—it is important that you focus and know what is going on around you. For I have given you power to speak to the heavens and to declare these things also upon this earth so that you may know my truth in a greater depth and draw it nigh to your heart. See it, believe it, so that you can see what I am preparing for you in this hour because I hath decreed it and ordained it to be so. Now you will walk in the understanding of it. Stretch out to reach beyond where you have been going to go further, see clearer and recognize that I am showing the way that will direct your path. Some of your decisions will greatly affect the decisions of others concerning their lives.
Know that I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. I am your power source you must stay connected when you are close by me—you are charged and there is no fear in you. But when you are pulled away at the busyness of the day you become weak and unable to do all that I have commanded you to do. So draw near—don’t pull back—there is so much for you to know now. I have placed within you my DNA so that you will know what to do, how to do and why it is necessary to do it that way. My ways are essential for you to overcome great obstacles. My way is the walk of the upright and within it are endless possibilities.
Psalm 119:105 "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet And a light to my path.
2 Kings 23:3 "The king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep His commandments and His testimonies and His statutes with all his heart and all his soul, to carry out the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people entered into the covenant."
When the King entered into covenant--the people followed.
Watch for suddenlies even upon this week and even shakings--so much is going on at the same time. It is a strong indication of things to come. Something very powerful is afoot. We have entered into the realm of endless possibilities, even revival fire.
WORD FOR FEBRUARY 2014“As you come into this month of February you are entering into the most significant month of this year although it is the shortest it will carry the heaviest impact. Because you are coming into a “get out of the boat and walk upon the waters with me season.” Even as challenges present themselves, begin to say to yourself, what I am seeing now that I can overcome it because everything that I will encounter now is being presented to take me into a higher level of faith and anointing. Your faith will increase, it is growing, it is building because the work before you is greater. The challenges will be frequent but the outcome will carry greater rewards and the advancement will cover much ground for the times ahead.”
Matthew 14: 25- 29 “And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.”
“Know that I have placed some of you ahead of the others to lead, to get into the press to move forward, push through and advance on every side. This is a pioneering work and I have set forerunners who are positioned to assist in the shifting of great things to come. And they will go before you to proclaim the works of my hand. To speak of things that seemed impossible and will encourage others to dream again. They will let my people know –it can be done, it will be done, move forward, only believe, don’t stop now, you are nearer than you have ever been in victory. You will overcome obstacles that are being presented now before you. It is your faith initiating and your hope anticipating that will bring forth manifestation now in a very real and very powerful way. That which is being birthed in the heart of those who hear my voice and act upon what I have spoken without hesitation will produce the promises that I have shown them in times past.”
“Know that this time will not be exempt of trouble, obstacles nor hindrances but your ability to deal with them will determine the way and the access to things that I am preparing for you now and in the time to come. So look and behold me, your God as I encourage you, speak to you with words of wisdom so that you may accomplish more and seize the moment. Although this month is shorter than the others it will yield forth great expectations. I will speak to you in the night seasons words of revelation through simple truths that will unlock answers that you will need. You must know how to accomplish important issues to bring necessary resolve at this time.”
“As you enter in I will release unto you keys that are pertinent to your journey—and you will have what you need to conquer and deal with the problems that face you now. Don’t be afraid to drop old methods of doing things and pick up new ones that provide more solutions than before. Understand you have more options than you know. There are more ways to do what needs to be done. I have given you a heightened creativity--a keen flow for those who seek my presence. These are the new dynamics that are being placed before you so that you can obtain the goals that are being established now.”
“Don’t allow people’s attitude concerning their own scenarios hinder your progress. . .some things are more expedient than you think. Stay focused on what I have emphasized for you to do now for I am here for you with my grace so you will walk into this New Day Reality. Many things that you have endured helped you, motivated you, and strengthened you to get to where you are now. So rise!!”
Isaiah 60:1 Amplified Bible “Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!”
*Stay before my presence for I am releasing keys to wealth spiritually and naturally so and which will grant access to your future. Many plans, dreams, and goals will be harvested and produce a great yield in the future. Even in times of famine. Do not squander what I release into your hands once you receive it. It will be given to you to prepare you for what is coming.”
“I shall release many who have been captive for long periods of time and they will walk out of places of deep imprisonments. This is the time for the captives to be released spiritually and naturally –intercessors pray them forth for now I am breathing into them new life. There will be great healing and deliverances from past experiences that will move my people forward to help others who have experienced similar things but now they have overcome.”
“Within these next six months, change will come to usher in new warriors who are not afraid to live, for the sake of righteousness. In the midst of these things, I will sow good strong apostolic/prophetic leadership into lands, and regions. They release the strategies of Kings and will take territories for me, says the Lord. They have not been designated, nor picked by the religious status quo. But know that I am doing a quick work and cutting it short in righteousness.”
“For I am raising up a unique people, in this unique hour that I will sow into various regions. They will produce a great harvest of souls coming into the kingdom. Many of these assignments are now being released into the church—they will exemplify unity in diversity, harmony in an hour of uncertainty, and carrying a strong integrity in a time of a falling away. They will come forth with great zeal and boldness to bring forth even more warriors into my great army. Their uniqueness is itself, a strategy within a strategy, for I am raising up a radical troop of worshipers, prayer warriors and watchmen who will war and who will win. They will be known as a strategy in the hand of their God, carrying weapons of war and they will be an end-time harvest instrument in the land, says the Lord.”
January 15, 2014
There is a wisdom that is being released from the Lord that we must follow in order to balance and deal with the issues at hand so that we are able to navigate through troubled waters onto dry land. We must walk in full awareness with what is going on around us without becoming distracted and troubled by what we are dealing with on an everyday basis.
If we don’t walk in this strategy then it could hinder our ability to hear, see, deal with and process things as they happen. In order to see the big picture of the purposes and plans of the Lord, we must now become fully aware of things approaching as we advance. This wisdom from heaven is set in motion to give us the opportunity in walk in the higher level of faith in what He has spoken to us.
It can create the atmosphere for a manifestation of the miraculous, as we tangibly grasp the things that the Lord is preparing for us right now.
We cannot let the clamor of things happening right now to get us off focus. Nothing is more important than getting in His presence and abiding there while praying, fasting and advancing on to do our due diligence. In this season, advancement has everything to do with accomplishing what needs to get done.
This is a time to tighten up, discipline ourselves to the point that we are in consistent forward motion to achieve the things necessary to get things done. Don’t put things off--sharpen your skill set, pack your spiritual tool box and gather everything for this hour that you need to get the job done.
Don’t be afraid to advance, press in more, no we have not been this way before. But watch in the Spirit--pray in the Spirit and look toward the promises that the Father has spoken to you in your ear. It’s time to advance through that tent door to abide with Jesus, so we might advance in every area of our lives.
1 Corinthians 15:58 (Amplified version) “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord [always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord], knowing and being continually aware that your labor in the Lord is not futile [it is never wasted or to no purpose].”
This week some major ground is going to be taken in the realm of the Spirit. Let it begin with YOU. PRESS IN PRESS ON!!!
Word of the Lord for 2014
(The following is a compilation of significant words, and visions during my time of seeking the Lord for his utterance and wisdom concerning 2014.)
“Your ability to move forward is a necessity now. Be ready to face major challenges by moving forward and not allowing yourself to be stifled. There is a momentum set in place for you to come forth and accomplish much unfinished business. This is a time to carefully review and look over your priorities, and make key adjustments. Update and Reboot your plans for this New Year. The movement upon this hour will be fast-paced and some things if not taken care of early in the year could hinder you further along the way. Come in to receive instructions of my wisdom that will help you to get things done quickly in a short amount of time. Do not allow major distractions to cause fear and anxiety. Be firm about your decisions especially when it comes to making sure that your convictions align with to the standard that I have set in your life. Let your yea’s be yea and your no’s be no. Be clear and deliberate without compromise. Deal with situations where you are straddling the fence because things that you don’t address now could later impact you at a more serious time.”
“This time of prayer and fasting will enable you to operate more in the moment. It will be a time when after the prayer has been prayed in the place of my presence, I will be with you. As you go out, you will have answers and I will walk with you and talk with you and guide with my own hand. Your time that you spend in my presence will yield much fruit and bring a greater depth in our fellowship together. Your steps will be ordered. You will carry a peace that when times of trouble and turmoil are present, you will hear clearly and know exactly how to react and what to do. Don’t allow anyone or anything to disturb your calm reserve now. It will be a much needed virtue to have this entire year.”
I am pouring upon my people the oil of my covenant that was established before time. You will begin to see it’s effect in the days to come. As I pour out the oil upon you, it will be evident that I will be with you to help you, direct you, and show you things as you cry out from your place in prayer. The oil symbolizes access into places that you have not previously entered into; along with the ability to come out of situations that you have not previously been able to come out from. It is the oil of favor and joy giving you the grace to come out of troubled areas into a place of breakthrough. Great change will begin to come forth. So many wondrous things will begin to happen. Know that I am moving upon this time for all to see so that a greater measure of My glory will come forward. Revival fires will burn. You will feel the power of my love coming forth upon my people and joy will come in the midst of them. A peace will be released that will bring a fire and a light upon my people. A peace that will flow like liquid fire. It is my portion given freely to you to believe again, to hope again, and to reach up and reach out to touch others’ lives in ways that have not been in this measure.”
“Listen clearly to my words and incline your ears to hear my sound as it vibrates throughout the land. It will carry a frequency of love, unity, and my heart for you. Don’t allow the sound waves of noisome pestilence, discord, and confusion to distract you now. There are clusters of sound waves that are penetrating the airways that will carry the sound within the atmosphere. There is an acceleration of change coming forth and is it blowing in the land for your good, says the Lord. So sing new songs before my presence and let the wind of my spirit take you into a higher place of peaceful abiding. It will be the place where you will go. It will be a sweet resting place in the light of my presence that will bring healing and new joy.”
“This release will be the beginning of great things that I have prepared for my people. Cry out in the Holy place of prayer. Press in and don’t let up. Press in my people and don’t give in, because as the prayers are being released out of my house (between the porch and the altar) they will touch and cover areas that couldn’t be covered in any other way. These prayers will cover the course of the year and will set a watch in place throughout this hour. ”
Psalm 45: 7 (Aramaic Translation): You have loved righteousness, you have hated evil, because of this, oh God, your God has anointed with you the oil of a joy greater than that of your companions."
”For now, the vision to watch and pray is coming forth in a greater measure. It will take on a sound, and a voice that will not be silenced, says the Lord. The power of prayer is being activated across the land and it shall increase. Much trouble would have come upon this land if it had not been for prayer. The warfare against this nation has increased so continue to press in and pray. Pray with power and without ceasing. Prayer is the key in this hour, and it has been passed down from generation to generation. It will never lose its strength. Let the prayer pour like the oil. Let it pour out in your homes, at the gates, in the secret place, in the glory, and in the worship. As the prayers come forth so will my oil and the flow of miracles will come. Salvation will increase, deliverance will come forth, and many souls will come into the kingdom.”
Psalm 105:8 He has remembered His covenant forever the word that He has commanded to a thousand generations.
“Open up your spirit so that you may know what is about to unfold. Open up your heart so that you may receive my grace and my glory, and so that you may understand why this season is so important as you transition across troubled waters to solid ground. So rise up and take your place. I will lead you. I will surround you with a hedge of protection. As you follow me the favor that I will place upon you will guide you through. Know that I love you with a love that is everlasting. I desire that you walk in victory in ways never seen before. All that you have been searching for will be found right before my presence. This is a time to overcome and a time to conquer obstacles. It is the hour to hear and not forebear. Know that you are being prepared to be a part of the greatest army in this hour. For the work of the Kingdom will come forth mightily. You have a part in this destiny, says the Lord. It will come to pass. It is my word and my promise to you in this season.”
There are times that the Lord will reveal to us the big picture and show us important puzzle pieces. These puzzle pieces remind us of important things as we walk out our destiny with Him. He will even speak words of encouragement and wisdom to us. This coming year will have its’ share of concerns. It will be a time that far exceeds our expectations. We will see a divine awakening within both the year 2014 and 2015. We will see blueprints, strategies, patterns, and even “types and shadows,” released fresh out of God’s word. They will become clearer and more easily understood than ever before. Some will say, “Wow that happened just as it did in God’s word.”. We will see and understand through revelations and mysteries His word revealed to us in profound ways. So that we may come to fully understand who He (Christ) is in us. As we get closer to the fullness of times more mysteries will be revealed with great understanding.
For example: We read and talk about the glory of God’s presence, but what we will see as it is revealed to us in 2014? We will see things in greater levels and realms than we have ever seen before. It will be like looking into a magnifying glass or into a telescope. Our hearts will be flooded with light and we will understand the hope of our calling. We will know the true richness of what we have inherited in Him. (Ephesians 1:18-21)( Luke 8:10)
Ephesians 1:18 (Amplified Bible) By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones).
Colossians 1: 26-27 (Amplified Bible) The mystery of which was hidden for ages and generations [[b]from angels and men], but is now revealed to His holy people (the saints), To whom God was pleased to make known how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ within and among you, the Hope of [realizing the] glory.
Ephesians 1:9-10 He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth, In Him.
The Gardening of the Lord and the Harvest to come.
In a deep prayer before the Lord, He showed me a garden. It was beautiful and I knew this was symbolic to what was going on right now and in the time to come. He said, “The seeds that were planted in us during September 2013 (the High Holy days) have been germinating. The harvest will be reaped all throughout 2014 and 2015.”. The first harvest will come forth in January and February. Many will say, “It is not the time for this to come forth now.”, but the Lord will respond, “Say no more four months then comes the harvest but lift up your eyes and look out into the fields for they are white already to harvest.”. (John 4:35) The harvest of Souls will come into kingdom throughout the year 2014. Revival winds will be blowing and revival fires will be burning. A new cleansing will come upon the people.
What was sown in tears will now be reaped in Joy. For the tears shed, test completed, trials endured and battles fought and won have taken root and will bear fruit. This will be a year of unusual times of harvest, unusual times of sowing and reaping, and even times when the reaper will overtake the sower. Much will be gathered in this time of harvest. We will see the manifestation of the promises of the Lord from souls to spiritual growth and from abundance in wells of resources to currents of means for God’s people. A watering will take place. The plowing will take place throughout the year with bumper crops and then there will be times when we will just barely have enough to cover what is needed.
As we gather spiritually from the Lord we will be able to see where and how to gather where there is no fruit at all. Because the bearing (evidence) of the fruit will come forth through our knowing Him and what He represents in us and through us.
The Crops of dreams sowed into the good ground of the Lord will bear fruit and yield strong harvests. Those who are focused on helping the needs of others who are in famine spiritually and naturally so, will see great results. As the abundance comes in this hour, also comes the responsibility to give to those who are in great need. Cities of refuge and storehouses will be prepared in order to deal with trouble as it arises. We will see some catastrophic events that will occur during this year.
During Rosh Hashanah the seeds were planted and watered, but much of what was happening was not yet visible. This year we are in the beginning of seeing the sprigs come up from the ground. The process will be visible in the time it is needed the most. These are the spiritual seeds that were hidden in the ground of time, and are coming now with great strength. They were those who were being prepared and felt as if they were tried in the fiery furnace of affliction, and then sifted through a sieve (an instrument that only allows the finest of flour to come through). They were those who overcame the hardship of adversity. Being refined they will now rejoice in the coming of His glory. Many said, “I waited and waited but I didn’t see what I was waiting for and I cried within myself.”, but the Lord will say to His people, “These times of waiting, brought forth a rich spiritual harvest that was nurtured and matured through the process of fervent prayer and true fellowship with me.”.
That which is coming in this season is as a result of His mercy and His righteousness. He is watering us with words of grace and truth as we are being transformed and changed. He has covered us and is keeping us in ways we sometimes don’t realize. It has been His patience and long suffering that has preserved us. It is the integrity of His love of that is causing us to blossom. It’s about the Kingdom, it’s about triumphing in the face of evil. It’s even about the strength of the Lord arising in the face of coming trouble. As I continued to pray the Lord showed me great shakings upon the earth, great tremors coming upon the land. I saw men who will rise up in anger from nations to incite war. I saw the same anger rising up in the Middle East, with assassinations plots and coups within that government. I wasn’t afraid, but I was disturbed and I heard the voice of the Lord with such a calmness and peace saying, “Do not be dismayed for in the very midst of this there will be an arising of my people who will align themselves with my word. They will awake out of slumber; they will rise up and declare my words as they walk in Holiness lifting up a standard in the land. They will not be afraid, nor will they will they fret but they will stay before my presence to hear my instructions concerning the move of my dominion upon land. My army will continue to grow and grow. It will not be hindered nor will it be destroyed. “.
For many will say, “I am the one who will heed the call of the Father. I will follow and obey his commands. I will not be afraid because I understand who He is in me.”. There will be a great boldness amongst the people and a great understanding was upon them as they united as one. They will cry out in this hour saying, “We are ready, willing, and prepared!”. These are the hearts of many that will pray towards the harvest. They will be overjoyed to see this unity in purpose coming forth. For in the glory you will see a tremendous outpouring. (As I prayed I saw the Glory raining like liquid fire falling upon the people.)
Isaiah 58:11 "And the LORD will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail. Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; You will raise up the age-old foundations; And you will be called the repairer of the breach, The restorer of the streets in which to dwell.”
The Lord is preparing a table
I saw a vision of the Lord’s table. It was like a wood table overlaid with fine gold. I heard the Lord say, “Remind the people I have prepared a table for them.”. Somehow I knew the table was symbolic of a place of provision for his people. It was also a place of learning as one who sits and hears from the Lord. It represented the table where the bread of the Lord is placed. The place where we can be trained and equipped for future seasons to come. This is the place where we can be elevated and anointed for His glory after completing the growth and maturation process. We must remain teachable and humble in this place. For the table also symbolizes the Lord’s altar. A place not for men’s feet in standing but, for men’s lives to be laid down as an offering acceptable for consumption by God. It is a tabernacle and a place of abiding. Psalm 23 says that the Lord will prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies, that He will anoint our heads with oil, and that our cups will overflow. The oil of the Lord represents the essence of Him. It is the oil that carries purpose and knowledge of our destinies.
The cup of the Lord represented our chosen walk to what we have been called. The Lord is saying to embrace what He has given us. Remember that while we are obedient to Him: His goodness and mercy will follow us, keeps us, cover us, and protects us. It is prepared and just like the Wedding Feast it is prepared and ready for all to come. It is not based on who we are but whose we are. I heard the scripture: Luke 14: 15 “Blessed is the man who eat at the feast of the Kingdom.”. There will be great opportunities to receive from the Lord what He has freely given us.
Rising Above Adversity
Attitude has everything to do with altitude. So if we allow our hearts to be darkened with ungratefulness carrying bouts of anger without resolve we will find it difficult to come out of those deep places of emptiness and isolation. When we rise above the adversity and make choices to rise up in prayer, in the word and with thanksgiving and praise we honor Our Lord with Hope; reaching out to receive His heart with humility and love. In this we will become more like Him. A transformation will be taking place, and we should yield to it. Our positioning is everything and has everything to do with knowing his ways. The reality is if we want a better sense of well-being in Him Spiritually we have to do better. Yes, the presence of God can touch our hearts and change us, but the question that we must answer is, “Are we ready to receive from the Lord?”, or “Are we closed off and alienated?”. There can be a room full of people, some may be ready to receive all that they can from the Lord and the others may be skeptical and unwilling. (What may seem like a door to many can be a wall to others.) It’s well beyond time to embrace the things of God as they are freely given to us. We must rise up in faith and see that yielding ourselves to Him is also being willing to receive from Him. We must embrace the process. This is the reason faith begins with us trusting in Him.
You see, things are not based on what men see, nor what men consider to have value. The thing that is the most vital to us is how The Lord sees us. We are living in a time where as get closer to the end of days we will see intensifying levels of negativism. It will be evident that confusion and great discontentment is stirring in the worldly atmosphere. But at the same time we are about to see, and know the most powerful intensifying levels of glory that we have ever experienced in our lives. We will witness times when it will appear to be heaven upon Earth, the Heavens will be opened and the promises of God will be real and tangible in the face of some serious events. How we perceive and understand the Lord concerning what we are to do in the face of these end-times will directly affect how empowered the people of God will be.
Word of the Lord for December 2013 -- “Prepping for 2014" & "Obeying the instructions of the Lord”
I had a prophetic dream, with it the Lord released with it some vital instructions and insights. In this dream I was gathering some food for some people and although it appeared to be a small amount I knew it was going to have an impact on multitudes (I knew I was not alone in this assignment and that others were given various other assignments, but each would have a great effect on many.)
As I prepared to get to the others what I had gathered, I saw two paths—I could go down a long hallway and be seen or I could go through a series of doors that would keep me from being seen. But it would be risky because I didn’t know what was behind the doors. After prayerfully deciding, I began to go through the series of doors. As I walked through the doors many rooms were empty. (No furniture, no people, nothing contained in those rooms, just plain white rooms.)
I walked into a door and although I wasn’t fully aware of the technology that was before me, I knew that it involved some high level spiritual espionage. It seem to symbolize very serious trouble that we were about to face on several levels in the near future. There were two rooms and there were wires attached to circuit boards that they were attached to large units with a control table that seem to be some kind of communication and hacking device. It could have been symbolic but whatever those first two rooms represented I knew it was destructive and evil in its intent. In the third room there was a man, he was turned for the moment from me. He was focused upon something like time was of the essence.
The question that entered my mind as a peeked through room two looking into room three was how could I get through this room unnoticed and get to the next door. But there was no other door. But as I asked that question an audible voice said to me, “Go through the narrow place.” I knew that the ability to get from one place to the other was through a narrow place. When I hear those words---the Lord’s strength touched me and I knew I could I get to the place where the people were, safely.
Then I heard him: it was the man in the third room and he was turned towards me and the answer was coming from the man working in the 3rd room. He said to me, “Do you see that narrow place?” Then my eyes focused, as I gazed upon the corner of the room, it was a narrow passage, it seem to confirm to me that the ability to get to safety was accessible but I knew it had to do with the ability that the Lord had already provided. As I turned sideways, I pushed myself through the passage carrying in my hand the small bag of food. It was like I was swept through by the wind for it carried me through quickly.
I sought the Lord concerning an interpretation and He revealed to me that the dream was significant to the time we are in now. He shared with me further instructions and said that it would answer many questions as we go through this month of December. It carries within it paths, the hallway and the series of doors.”
These are His words:
“I will instruct my people on how to prepare for victory by overcoming obstacles that will stand before them now. This is the time to deal with personal failures and mistakes. This is a time to forgive yourself and forgive others. Do not let the shame, nor the sin allow you to continue the same cycles, for they have become obstacles and hindrances in your moving forward. Know that I placed keys, ways and even access to ways to push you forward into the place that I am causing you to rise up from now. You have been prepared for a testament and testimony. This is the time to resolve issues. Allow me to remove all the filthiness of flesh to give way to My Spirit that I placed within you to become, the new you in this hour.”
“You have what you need to complete the assignments ahead. Remember the place where you have experienced hardships, times of famine, lack, and even times of weariness—I WAS WITH YOU--and in that place I prepared you, carried you, and gave you the power to overcome even that which is coming. Do not be afraid. In that place, you found me and the fellowship of my sufferings. Now I am reviving you. You are beginning to breathe again with the purpose and life that I placed in you to help others.”
“Remember, I am your Everlasting God, your place of rest and your way of reconciliation. Restoration belongs to you. You will come forth of out of a narrow place. A place where we abide yet still---that place will always be in your heart, in your mind. And in your time of great struggle you will be able to draw from what you need to rise up above the trouble. So never despise the day of small things, because it is in those small things, I can do wonders and I can feed multitudes.”
These were the seven things that the Lord spoke concerning this month as instructions going into 2014: (It is not my assignment to teach this so I will only share the instructions and there is plenty of revelation to draw from.).
1.) Watch what we are consuming. The definition of consuming is: (a feeling), completely filling one’s mind and attention; absorbing, to take in as food. What is filling our minds and attention? No matter how we see this, it speaks volumes. Matthew 16:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. The physical intake of harmful foods that go into our systems can affect our lives but the flesh can have an even more serious consequence. This warning goes back to dealing with the spirit of uncleanness. What we are drawn to? We need to see ourselves not through our own eyes or the eyes of the world but through the lens of God’s word. The Father has prepared proper nourishment for his people. What we allow into our spirit is very important now. This is a serious time for examination.
2.) Watch what you feed others. What we allow into our spirit is what we expose to others. When there are unresolved issues they must be submitted to Him for change and deliverance. They must accompany our cries for repentance. If not, then as people of God these problems can carry over into our relationships with others and can hinder those whom we care for most.
3.) Walking in #1 and #2 will help you follow the instructions that you will need to accomplish your given assignments. We must follow the proverb that instructs us: Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. If we are not disciplined in our lives, what we partake in and consume along with who we join ourselves to can have a serious affect our ability to hear clearly and follow the Lord’s instruction when those instructions are given. The Lord said, “If My word is not adhered to now, How will it be heard in times of trouble?” e Following the voice of the Lord has everything with being able to maneuver around trouble as it presents itself.
4.) In this hour, as we follow our assignments we will discover some things that we were not aware of. It will uncover the enemy’s plots and plans. So we must watch, as well as pray. Walk in discretion and abide in the secret place with Him, is the order of the day. Then we will be ready to overcome situations and move forward in his timing. We must wait to hear his voice. When we stay before Him we will move in a confidence that won’t come from our ability but directly from the anointing of the Lord. Zechariah 4:6 Then he answered and spoke unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, says the LORD of hosts.
5.) Don’t despise the narrow place (the narrow way)—it is a way of escape. We cannot look at times of struggle, lack or even times of weariness as a place of despair. Affliction and hardship should not be looked upon as a place where we felt abandoned by the Lord. It was a place of abiding with Him. Where we fellowshipped with Him in prayer, gratitude, praising him and loving Him and waiting upon Him no matter what we were enduring. It was a time when we were aligned with Him, not seeking His Hand but watching and standing before His face. Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. The path will be before us as we progress through the series of doors. No matter what is presented before us the path of Christ will keep us. It is the path that will provide safety, the narrow way is life. He is our way of escape.
6.) We should hear His directions/insights and follow them. When He speaks to us, we must make the necessary adjustments. We can’t ask Him why were not successful when we hear Him but we didn’t make changes that we were supposed to make.
7.) When accomplishing your assignments you must overcome past personal struggles—the enemy will try to set us up, in an effort to trip us up. The narrow place humbles us, purges us, and removes the lumps from us, the leaven. (Galatians 5:9, 1 Corinthians 5:7). We must confront these issues. We can’t wish them away, deny they exist and acting like the victim only strengthens those strongholds. We must surrender to the Lord all that we are dealing with.
This is a time of completion of some things and a beginning of other things. We must embrace the new that is coming. This a time of coming out of transition into the place where the miraculous will take up where we leave off—it is the place of our faith and the fulfilling of significance things that will be accomplished within His own timing. Remember the food (God’s provision/nourishment reached the people.) There are people waiting on the other side of our completed assignments.
