Now is the time to stop shallow breathing and take a deep breathe of Me. New and fresh life for the new and different leg of the journey that is ahead. Your complete trust will be the only thing that will cause you to come through the fire without even a hint of smoke. You will also need to depend upon the assistance of the body members that I have strategically placed you with. For they know you and you know them, so without a word they can sense the need to help and will come and supply the part that I have given them for you and you will be able to fulfill your part now too. There are uncharted waters and territories ahead for My children, and just as Israel had to depend upon Me in the wilderness, because it was unknown to them, so will you now.
There is a rumbling upon this earth and it has been in the making for quite some time now, but it will boil over soon. It will unleash a flow of hatred and intolerance for My true church. All who will and have declared My Word uncompromisingly and unashamedly will be harassed by the enemy, for My truth. Do not be afraid, for there will come forth from the deep fountains of your soul such boldness that you will be amazed that was there. I have been quietly making you more like Me. You will rise up in the power and authority that you were created for such a time as this. The true remnant will step up to the plate. Angels that have been sent to assist will protect and fight on your behalf. Require their aid and they will hearken.
Many that have run with you up til now will begin to back up into the shadows because they really have always feared men faces, although when there was no threat of being singled out for hatred, they spoke loudly and seemed to be bold. This is the season of true coming out! Those who are for Me will cross over to the other side where I Am, with all power and ability, there to make them stand against all resistance to My truth. Again I say, do not be afraid, I Am here with you. I can be depended on to bring you out victoriously. Know that the enemy is familiar with the old you, but he does not know the new you that you have become since your death! You are a new species, one that he can not quite understand, this has always baffled him, which is why he never quite succeeds when it comes to My new creation. So take a deep breath and take this plunge into this new territory with Me, we will conquer this land for the Kingdom too.
"And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits." (Dan. 11:32)
"The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion." (Prov. 28:1)
"That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it." (1 Corin. 12:25-26)
There is a clarification of hearing that I Am causing to come to pass for all that have practiced listening strategically, and I Am positioning you to see and hear things that you have never seen or heard. But with greater clarity comes a greater responsibility, so that when you hear you quickly obey, obedience is critical in the time that we are in right now, says the Spirit of the Lord. So when you see in the realm of the spirit into the supernatural, you will cross over borders and boundaries that have hindered you from understanding some things. For with deeper understanding comes a certain degree of responsibility, where you must obey quickly. You can no longer be hindered by carrying the weight of the world, the cares of this world and the circumstances and the situations of your life that blind you from walking freely and boldly into the things that I have declared over your life.
Every promise that I have given you in the past will come quickly says the Lord, for this is the season of acceleration and with that comes a great responsibility of obedience too. So be quick to hear, quick to see, and understand for I Am uncovering and unveiling a revelation of things that up until now you did not truly understand. But you will understand and with that you will want to be obedient, you must obey, for this is the time and the season that you have stepped into. I Am looking for obedient ones that I show Myself strong on their behalf, and that I may cause my blessings to stay upon them as a shroud or a cloak. Your obedience reveals your real love for Me. This is your time of greater blessings, I have spoken it over you once and I Am saying it again.
Everything that has been lost, this is the time of restoration, because of the great obedience to My Word. You will overcome and walk in a level of maturity that you have not done until now. Things that once kept you bound from walking in complete and total freedom, will be loosed from your life. If you will allow and let Me, I will do beyond your highest expectations. I Am searching deeply in the hearts of men and women who have availed themselves and yielded their members to Me. I will quickly correct and straighten out those crooked places that have caused you to wander around in the wilderness and I have declared over you that you will step into your promise, that I have given you. Lives and souls are at stake for you are walking now as the Joseph’s of this generation. Not only are you giving to them the things that you have stored up but it will come with great power and great ability, says the Lord.
You will do great signs and wonders and many things shall come to pass in these days that will cause men and women to come quickly to the kingdom and they will be established quickly and they will grow quickly for the time is at hand and you must be busy, more busy than ever before about My business. This is not the time to be slothful, nor the time to pull away for it is time to draw closer and nearer to Me so that you can hear, so that you can see with greater clarity, says the Lord.
Because of the times and season that we are in, and because of the deceptive, vast darkness that has covered the earth, I Am causing greater light, greater understanding to come. So that you can walk in the midst of the darkness and be not touched by the things of this world, and not be twisted by the veil of this world, nor the cares of your own life, nor the deceitfulness of riches, nor the lust of other things will come in and choke My Word out of your heart. But in this moment you will be strong and you will do exploits and will not be moved by the things that are seen. Rather you will be moved by the unseen realm because you are stepping into another realm of My glory, and with glory comes a greater responsibility. Because you will move into the level of glory that the world has been crying out for generations. For generations many have been crying out to walk in this glory, and I am causing that glory to accelerate and abound in this season. So with it comes that greater responsibility but do not be afraid, be bold and walk into it like never before.
"Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward. For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is promised. For still a little while (a very little while), and the Coming One will come and He will not delay. But the just shall live by faith [My righteous servant shall live by his conviction respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, and holy fervor born of faith and conjoined with it]; and if he draws back and shrinks in fear, My soul has no delight or pleasure in him." (Heb. 10:35-38)
You hear all the things that are coming upon the earth and yes, these things will come and they must come to pass in preparation for My coming. My people are divinely protected and have always been protected! If you will look through My Word you will see that anyone who will come underneath the shadow of their God is always protected no matter what goes on in the world. If there is famine in the land and you are underneath My protection you prosper, if there is sickness, disease, plaque, death, and destruction, those who are underneath My protection will live and survive.
So I Am saying to you My people do not fear anything! In fact as the borders are being diminished and overtaken by enemies, I say your borders shall be divinely protected, for I have already sent out warring angels to stand garrison around about My people to keep them in all of their ways. Even when you are asleep I Am surrounding you, keeping you and protecting you, for the enemy desires to sow wicked things into your mind while you are sleeping, so that when you awake you are impregnated with his dreams, visions, and his lies, but My ministering angels stand garrison even around your mind at night while you sleep. That is why I neither slumber nor sleep, for I Am constantly watching over you to protect you and to keep guard over you. So I will not fail you in this season, or any season that should come upon this earth for I Am faithful. I will watch over you, I will stand garrison around about you.
All I ask is for you to do is continue in your faith. Your faith must begin to soar like never before, this is not the time to give up nor give away the faith that I have given unto you, the faith that has been implanted, and that you have watered in your heart. This is the time, saith the Spirit of grace and mercy to declare and decree over your life the very things that I declare and decree over you. For once you do, you come in agreement with Me and there is no power on heaven or earth, or under the earth that can stop it from coming to pass. All I need is your yielded mouth, heart, and spirit, and I will come and do the work. Quite often what has happened in your life is that you started out very vigorous, and excited for the things of the Kingdom and then times of trouble and turmoil come and you lay down the very weapons that I have give you to succeed.
So, I say to you once again to pick up your weapon of faith, pick up your weapon of confession, pick up your weapon of trusting Me, and you will see says the Lord, that you will not fail in this season. No, the spirit of oppression, that cloud of darkness, that cloud of heaviness that has taken over this world will not overtake My people. For your light shall shine bright even in the midst of darkness, but rather it shall grow brighter, it shall get bigger, and you shall get bigger and better, and your mind shall get clearer, your voice shall get stronger, and the deeds that you do shall be more mightier, says the Lord. This is My proclamation over My bride and over My church, and I will not fail, and neither shall you, says the Lord.
All I require for you to do is to stay with Me, to stay with My Word, to stay in faith, and be revived day in and day out; do not let the fires go down until there is nothing left but ashes. But allow Me, every day to help you renew and rekindle the fire on the inside of you, so that you might be strong and do mighty works in this end time. Do not back away from the things of the earth in timidity, but be bold and speak My Word in the midst. Do not back away from the words of the enemy, but stand declaring My truth. Do not to back away from the things that you see, these things are temporary! But know, fully know that you do not live by the things that you see, but your faith, your words, your life is determined by My Words, if you would line your words up with Mine victory is inevitable, your prosperity is inevitable, your peace is inevitable, the wholeness in your body is inevitable, it shall come to pass.
That is my decree and I have not changed and I will never change, for I Am not based upon circumstances nor situations, nor the seasons of the earth, nor the seasons of this world, nor the times of this land, but My Word is everlasting and I Am faithful to perform it, this I will do, says the Spirit of grace and mercy.
"Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations. That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: (1 Peter 1:6-7)
"(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" (2 Corin. 10:4-5)
Today I was reminded that we are in a war and that we are not to be entangled and wrapped up in the affairs of this world!! Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ, No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits. Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things." (2 Tim. 2:3-7)
My dear ones, to be so entangled with the world and all of the entrapments will cause you to be spiritual insensitive, and dull to respond to Me and My Word. You must be aware of the times and the seasons according to My Word, and be alert to the signs of the times, but not overwhelmed and overcome by the news of today. I have written to you of the things that must come before that great and notable day. If you would know and understand My Word, you would know that this is not the time to faint but to look up! I Am true to My promises, I will come for you! You can count on Me, I will not leave you in turmoil. I know how to deliver the godly that continue to live upright and habitually before Me in righteousness.
So be aware and cognizant of everything going on around you, but do not fear, in fact you must rejoice for you know that your redemption draws closer than ever before. Shine brightly in the midst of darkness, show others that grope in the great darkness that has come upon the earth, that you can see and you know the way out! Be to this world My city on a hill, that all men may distinguish and know the difference between you and all other deceptive ways that are being offered. Do not allow the truth to be blurred with the lies that our enemy propagates. I require you to be bolder in your faith, you must cry loud and spare not. You must smash the idol gods into mere dust, by living uprightly and holy, but also declaring that you know the Way. Do not fear their faces nor any perceived danger that may lead you into silence. I Am with you and I go before you to surround you as a shield!
I will not let My witnesses fail. I have and will continue to open the doors for you to declare My holiness as the one and only Way. Many of the voices that I once anointed have become faint and have blended into the voice of the world, because of fear of becoming an outcast and rejected from their places of prominence. That is why I Am anointing the voices of those out of obscurity and unknown places, those who have no crowds or numbers to weigh or think on. I Am their majority and they will heed My voice and declare unashamedly and unafraid My Words to a dying and deceived generation. They will walk in My signs and wonders to demonstrate that I Am with them. I have always wanted those who would follow Me with their whole heart, no matter the cost. They will not forget Me, no, I Am first in their heart. They will obey and do exploits, it will cause many to come and I will gather My own special jewels to Myself. These are My end-time harvesters, they will help Me gather! Be bold, My dear ones, your Redeemer will not forget your labor of love. Do not faint, but be renewed in your faith. I will come for you!
"If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning." (2 Peter 2:20)
"And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked, (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:" (2 Peter 2:7-9)
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28)
This is the verse I heard in my heart; "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins." (Is. 58:1) My people have gathered to themselves teachers, because they have itching ears, they desire to have their flesh tickled and their senses pleased. They would be lulled to sleep during a time that they need to be wide awake, and more alert than they have ever been before in their lifetime since knowing Me.
The enemy is hard at work deceiving them into desiring what others have in their life. They think that what they are looking at is what I want, but they only are seeing a refracted and a distorted picture. My people have been lusting for temporary pleasures which will leave them empty and void of Me. Yet, I have sent many strong watchmen to cry aloud and spare not, but they will not bare or tolerate them. They want the popular and those whose words flow like butter, causing them to slip by on lies and shallow promises, which are not what your attention should be fixed on.
You have become heavy of heart because you thought My words of warnings, and the sounds of alarm was what was making you feel weighted down and oppressed. It was because you were looking with longing after the fake and the impure that defiled your thoughts and made your heart heavy. If you will not endure the warning signs that I send to divert you from falling into a deep dark cavern of true despair, you will finally wake up to your dismay and see that My prophets, My teachers, My pastors, My apostles, and My evangelists were sent to save and deliver you from the impending doom. I have made My true gifts to you strong, so that they would not bend to your flighty ways of thinking, since you are easily moved by the popular, the secular church of this age, the church that bears My name, but not My words for this hour.
I said that in the last days there would be many that would come to deceive and lead many astray, because of the lust that was in their hearts. All the signs of the perilous times are here, men are lovers of themselves, traitors, unholy, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of Me, despisers of good, selfish, but more importantly they have a power of godliness, but deny My power. Open your eyes, wipe away the sleep. Wake up, the alarm has sounded. Do not be like the five foolish virgins, be wise.
I have fully equipped you, so that you would rise up and take your place as My mighty people to be a guide to the blind. Do not allow yourself to be pulled into any desire to emulate the world! My people are uniquely different, and should be glad to be so, you are to imitate Me, a higher reflection. You have been called for such a time as this. Arise, anoint your eyes with My oil, be refreshed! You are not of this world! Do not assimilate, stay My peculiar people! Stay ready, stay alert, and stay strong in My might. Keep the alarm sounding!
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." (2 Tim. 3:1-5)
"Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken." (Jer. 617)
"Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is." (Ephes. 5:14-17)
There is nothing too difficult for Me. You count your problem bigger than Me, but I Am greater! I Am greater because I hold all the answers, and I have the key. I will release the answers into your life, insight, wisdom, understanding, and ability. It shall be yours, and there will be no demon standing before you because the greater One that abides and lives on the inside of you. I Am rising up to the forefront in your life because you are keeping your eyes stayed on Me, you are keeping your mind stayed on Me, and then perfect peace, My peace that causes you to rise up and become a mighty warrior throughout the land.
Do you not understand the season that we are in? It is the time to regroup, it is the time to recalculate, it is the time to restore. So I Am taking everything back that has been stolen from you, and I Am giving you another opportunity to go forth and advance in the kingdom. You will align yourself with Me to take back everything by force that the enemy has taken from you. You will stand and declare that you serve the greater One, and you are not afraid of any power that he has. But greater power and authority I have given you to tread over every enemy and everything that would try to attach itself to your mind, your heart, and your body. I say to you this day, you are free, freer than you will ever know. Free, freer than you will ever know!
And so I say stand, stand fast, and act like someone who has been set free and see the chains that have been trying to wrap themselves against you, once again fall at your feet. Declare your freedom in Me, and then begin to advance into the enemies territory and take back lives. Act like brave and strong Ones, the victors that you are. Awake your soul up to My voice and My way. I am more concerned about souls than I am about your temporary pleasures. Take back lives that the enemy has stolen! For that is My desire, to seek and to save, line up with Me, seeking and saving, and you shall see the greater One do warfare for the souls of the people you know, and in your nation. This is your kingdom, this is your territory, this is your land, and I say to you get your mind onto the eternal kingdom of souls, and I will fill your very heart desires. You will find your heart being filled with My desire, as we become One.
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matt. 6:33)
"For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost." (Luke 19:10)
"You have given him his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah [pause, and think of that]! For You send blessings of good things to meet him; You set a crown of pure gold on his head." (Ps. 21:2-3)
In a vision I keep seeing a steak cooking. The Spirit says; the natural inclination is to cut off the fat before the steak has begun to cook, so many try to do the same spiritually. But as you begin to offer your lives on the altar, I leave the fat on, I leave and "let" the troubles, the trials, and the things that make you tender towards Me. All of those things that you would cut away, those are the things that I allow in your life to make you tender. Those very things that you would cut away are the very things that I use to cause you to draw closer to Me, to cause you to seek Me, to make you stand regardless. So that once you have gone through the difficult times, your faith will arise, and you will let nothing deter your heart from Me any longer. These are some of the things that I use, says the Lord, I use those things to build your God-character, the man and the woman that will be like Me.
So, even though you pray, and yes you should pray and come against every temptation, every trial, every test, but know that I am using some of these to cause you to grow up, to cause you to have a tender heart towards Me, to develop great endurance and patience with joy. To develop ears to hear Me and know Me, to be sensitive towards Me. Be discerning and know that even as you stand against the attacks of the enemy, know the things that he means for your harm, I turn and use them for your good and growth. Be wise and understand that at the right time when your heart is very tender, I cut those things away, little by little so that you will be tender towards Me and Me alone and. You will have the season of your Father God throughout your very life.
This is My plan and this is My desire for you. Never forget that everything that has come across your life, has been noted by Me, so if you will let Me, I will use it to make you tender, to make you more flavorful, to make your more seasoned like Me. It is My plan and it is My purpose, though the enemy means those things to destroy you, I turn them to your good!
"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light." (Col. 1:9-12)
"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end." (Eccles. 3:11)
Do not weary yourself about the plans of the wicked one. Do not fret about what he is doing, and what he is saying. Do not fret about who he is using or who he plans to try to operate through, to attempt to come against you, for their plans will come to nothing in your life. All of those schemes and plans will backfire and the pit they dug for you they will fall in themselves. For I Am a shield of faith around about you, and I will prosper every step that you take. For I Am for you! I go ahead of you, and I Am a shield behind you, so that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. I Am you way, your God, your Father, and the lover of your soul. I have made the way for you to come cross the finish line with great grace and glory. I will crown you for all your effort, and will cause your plans to succeed, because you put me first in your life.
I will prosper you far greater than financial prosperity, you will prosper in your mind, your will, and your emotions. You will be one with Me. Even the things that you thought that you could not do, but you did them anyway, out of obedience and love for Me, there is a great reward for you. Everything that you have done for the Kingdom carries a great recompense. I Am always along beside you, for I Am your helper, and I Am your shield and I Am the one who lifts you up when others cast you down. I Am faithful to My Word and to My promises, and I will fulfill them. Yes, even the plans that right now you think are crooked, I Am straightening out the crooked paths. I will make it straight and plain, if you would only give Me your attention, and your time. When you do says the Lord, I will speak to you in the quiet places, and you will know My voice.
I will reveal to you some higher thoughts and plans, and calm your spirit and your heart, and cause you to see the way that I have chosen for you. It is a good way. Even though sometimes it seems that it is packed with briers and thickets, and those things that poke at you, and things that tear at your heart, I have shielded you so that nothing but good would come out of you. I Am caring for you, says the Lord, and I Am faithful, and I will bring you to that good end. I will never, never leave you as long as you stay faithful to Me, I will stay faithful to you, for this is our covenant agreement and I will hold you all the way to the end. I will shield you and protect you from every dart of the wicked one and even those that you think slipped through and touched you, it is not anything that the enemy planned, he can not succeed concerning you in My arms. All that has been allowed, I have allowed for I Am perfecting you, and turning you into a sharp threshing instrument that the enemy can never stand up against. So, never be weary, says the Lord, for I Am always by your side, and I will do exactly as I have spoken to you in times past, for I Am your past, your present, and your future, and I will perform My Word, My faithful one!
"Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint or grow weary; there is no searching of His understanding.He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]." (Is. 40:28-29)
"A faithful man shall abound with blessings, but he who makes haste to be rich [at any cost] shall not go unpunished." (Pro. 28:20)
"Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward. (Heb. 10:35)
A wall has been torn down in the spirit, so step into the awesomeness of your God. Feel the tiny drops of the deep oil of anointing flowing down upon your crown, and all around your body. I Am covering you with divine protection so that you may walk through anything, and everything, and come out unharmed and unscathed by the things of this world. You will hear Me even in those most difficult times because of the covering that I have poured upon you, so bask in it! My glory, My anointing, My very presence goes before you and surrounds you so that you may always have access, and apply everything that I have given you. For I have given you everything that pertains to your life, your livelihood and the living of the days that you have ahead. I have given you everything, understand Me, everything!
All you need to learn how to do is to walk in it, to receive it, to take it as your own and to live a life exemplary of My grace and My anointing that rests upon you. Then you will see the manifest presence of your God, every day of your life, for My glory will go before you as a shield and cover you as a rear guard. There will not be an enemy that shall be able to touch or hinder you, you will be strong and do exploits in My name, for this is the day of your God, this is the day that I will be glorified in the midst of My people and My glory shall be given to you and you shall walk it out and live it out in every area of your life. Not just here in the midst of the anointing or the people of God but out there in the world where it is most needed.
My glory shall shine, My glory shall come forth, My glory shall cause wisdom and insight and witty inventions and creative ideas to come at that needed moment. My glory shall begin to expound, exclaim, and proclaim and go forth in My people’s lives. My glory shall be seen upon you like never before. Because you have been on the Potter's wheel and have yielded to My design and plan for you. It has not always been easy for you to do, but you have wanted to be pleasing to Me. You accepted the pruning that was necessary to bring forth better fruit. Now you will be lifted high because you have stayed humble to Me. So this is the season and the time to rejoice and give Me glory, for more of My glory is being poured out upon you even now!
"Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit." (John 15:2)
"Then I went down to the potter’s house, and behold, he was working at the wheel. And the vessel that he was making from clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he made it over, reworking it into another vessel as it seemed good to the potter to make it." (Jer. 18:3-4)
" You have loved righteousness [You have delighted in integrity, virtue, and uprightness in purpose, thought, and action] and You have hated lawlessness (injustice and iniquity). Therefore God, [even] Your God (Godhead), has anointed You with the oil of exultant joy and gladness above and beyond Your companions." (Heb. 1:9)
I Am not slack concerning My promises to you. I Am watching over My Word to perform it on your behalf. Remember that as I was with My servants in the past, so I Am with you. But also think on this, many things stand in the path between the promise and the manifestation of the promise. When I speak, My Word goes out to bring forth that spoken Word, but the journey has just begun towards the fulfillment of that promise. The promise is destiny and filled with adventures of your ever growing faith and trust in Me. There are many destiny thieves, there are traps, snares, pitfalls, and great battles along the way!
Your challenge is to stay faithful and believe the promise to the end. You can choose to let go, or hold on, it is your choice. But listen, and take heed to this, I never change My mind, or My promises! I Am fixed, and so is My Word. Believe Me and believe My Word, we are one, and the same. Many lived and saw some of My promises fulfilled in their lifetime. For they trusted in Me and My Word. Also there were many that died believing in the promise on this side of life, yet I say to you that they are enjoying the promise to the full. They are truly living in their destiny now.
See I Am an everlasting, ever-living God, and Father. So by now, you must know that I have placed in you an everlasting and an ever-living promise. They shall come to pass. Believe Me and believe My Word. I Am everlasting, ever-living, and so are My promise to you. I have placed them in you. remember always that the circumstances, and all that is happening now in this current time on this earth is temporary. I Am the same, I change not! I never shift or move from My Word spoken to you. Believe My Word and know that My promise are sure to you My eternal ones!

"For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed." (Mal.3:6)
The Spirit of the Lord speaks to us to find the stable path, and stay on the stable road. Find those who are stable in Me and link yourself with them, for there is coming upon the earth a strong and mighty force, a tempestuous wind, and it is not a force sent by Me. And since it is not a force sent by Me, it will not stand or consume you, but you must stand through it. So stay connected to those who are strong in My Word, find those who have been immovable in Me and you link yourself up with them, for you will find safety in the multitude of wise counsel in these times, and follow and pursue My peace. So the wind is sent to blow you off course to cause you to become shaken in Me, but I say, do not lose courage, be bold and strong and confident in Me, and look up for your redemption draweth nigh.
If you would keep your heart stayed upon Me, you would see that everything is in My hand. I have not changed My thoughts towards you, they never change, My plans for you, they never alter. I Am waiting on you to line up with Me and see Me as your preserver, and all I ask for is willingness, a willing heart that wills to do it My way, one that wills to obey Me when I speak, that will just do it. For I will never, and have never forced Myself upon you, and I will not do that, that is the place of the wicked one, that is what he does. But I asked you to take My word and make it your sure reward, make it what you stand upon no matter what comes or goes. For if you do that, My Word will be a strong shield around about you, and nothing shall be able to come in or touch you. Even as it devastates those around you, those who have not trusted in Me and My Word, I will protect you and keep you safe says the Lord. And you will not have to figure it out, for I already knew ahead of time, I know what it will take to keep you protected and safe.
I Am trustworthy, look and see My nature in My Word, I have shown and proven myself, over, and over, and over again that I Am the One you can trust and depend upon. See again that I Am your Father, I Am Daddy, and Abba, and I only desire the good for you if you would just "will" to obey me.

My hope is that you find Me and discover once again the fiery love that I have for you. Encounters upon encounters await you, if only you would leave the shadows of failure, doubt and disappointments behind. I Am to you, and for you the tree of life, all of your heart's desire, the genuine hearts’ desires could be met in Me. If you would seek Me with your whole heart, as you do, and have done for the many treasures and desires you have pursued. No doubt, the other treasures have left you empty, and pursuing for more, and as I beckon you to come closer, then another lover catches the gaze of your eyes.
Once again you divert your full attention from Me. I Am the only true and genuine lover that will satisfy your desires, the longings, the ache, and the desert places in your heart. Oh My beloved, if you would trust Me, I will deliver wholeness. You say, “what more can I do Lord, I feel like I have turned my life over to you?" And I say to you, "the reason you still feel barren and sometimes unfulfilled,this barrenness is revealed, and the emptiness is revealed so that you would seek more of Me to fill those places."
Oh, I have so much to cover, so much to heal, so much to waken and excite you. The depths of Me, and My love, they are unsearchable. The wicked one comes at the moment you feel the barrenness and fills your mind with lies and says that I Am not concerned with these places. But you know that he is a liar, he leads you astray and leads you to more empty and barren places. I have told you over and over again that even in the desert places I will make for you refreshing pools, and living waters. These waters will refresh your soul and quicken areas in your life that will cause you to take the right steps and bring you to My destined moment of wholeness. In these moments of confusion and emptiness, is the time for you to be still. Herein is wisdom, where there is chaos and confusion, wars and unrest in your soul, and in your life, come away and find My peace and be quiet. Be determined to do so and you will find Me, because this is where My lovers tend to make decisions from a place of confusion and emptiness that brings more desolation and more destruction.
Be still My love and wait on Me, I will bring you to fresh, clear understanding. My hope is that you recognize My love and return to Me. I will not hurt or harm you, I have whole and peaceful love and with that love, I lead with peace and joy. Wait and hear My voice, wait and you will hear from your lover, this is the way follow Me. Walk in it and you will find your desires being fulfilled, wait on Me and my way will lead you by the still and peaceful waters where rivers will overflow your steps with My love and peace for you, not being worried by so many things which causes your soul to be tossed about with a great wind. For My way is a gently breeze by My spirit on to the course that I’ve planned for you. My hope is that you will find Me and become My trees planted by those rivers. No matter what season you’re in, you will be found resting and leaning upon My everlasting arms not in your own strength if you hope in me. My undying love for your desires is only to do you good. My hope is that you find and discover My great, kind and all-knowing love.

Begin to see what I see, says the Lord. Can't you believe that I will use you in a supernatural way to cause the increase of My kingdom in these last days? Can't you believe that My power is resident on the inside of you? Believe that there is nothing too difficult for you and I together as we walk through this earth, and that there is nothing, not a thing that is too hard for Me to do in your life. Can you believe once again that I will do exactly what I said I would do, and that I Am not like man and that every word that I have spoken to you is a yes and amen? Can you believe that I would actually use you to bring My kingdom to pass? Can you believe says the Lord, that I will work a supernatural thing on the inside of you, where you can not even recognize yourself any longer?
Stop reasoning, and doubting Me, and believing the lies of the enemy that you are not worth it, for I have made you worth it, I have made you worthy says the Lord. I have made you able to carry My glory to a dying world, to be My vessels that touch this world, and would spark a fire in the midst of darkness and cause light to come forth and shine brightly. I have called you and anointed you for such a time as this. Can you believe that, says the Lord? For if you can, then there is nothing to difficult or too hard for the times or the seasons that you are in. In fact, this is the time of My glory, this is the time of My power, this is the time of the supernatural. If only you would believe and trust Me, and lay every burden at My feet, lay every care at My feet and watch and see Me, your God do supernatural miracles in your midst and use you. I delight to do this for you, My child.
Yes, where I have planted you to bring in this last end time harvest, so that men will know that there is one God and that I Am God in the midst of you, and that I will do mighty exploits in the days ahead. Can you believe that and will you believe Me, says the Lord? For if you do, walk and put your hand in My hand, and rest in Me and see, says the Lord. Quit working under your own might, and in your own strength and trust Me, trust Me, just trust Me to do exactly what I said I would do. For I will do it says God, I Am not a liar, I Am God who is truth, I speak truth, I declare truth and I Am truth. Believe Me says the Lord. For I am about to do that work on the inside of you that you have been longing for. It is high time, it is My time, it is your time and it is Our time, says the Lord.

I will speak and if you obey, I will speak again. I Am your love. I will never give up on you, just stay in My hand. I will continue to make you into My very image, until in the end you look like Me. When you awake, you will look like Me, it is My purpose, and My design, and I take delight in forming you and fashioning you into My very image. Sometimes this is difficult and hard for you to understand as you go through and I say, “This is not my way”, so I must change that in you. Do not refuse to bend, for then it is harder on you, so it seems as if you are breaking, but I will not let you break if you yield. I correct all those I love, it is always for your good, to make you grow up and mature, I Am your Father God.
As you renew your mind and change your thoughts to come in line with Mine, you will find that your desires will change to Mine as well. You will look at all things in your life from Our Kingdom perspective. You will simply do My Word and your delight will be found in the doing. You will understand the great prosperity found in obedience, and you will be happy and your joy will be full. The deep secrets hidden in My Word will be the treasure that fills your life and then you will experience My peace that makes you whole in every area of your life. These are the days that many longed for, to see the sons of God rise to their rightful place.
"And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him. For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth." (Heb.12:5-6)

May God bless you and keep you in His peace, especially as we see wars and rumors of wars again all around us. God has been telling us to learn to lean on Him, and put our trust in Him. Learn to listen and follow Holy Spirit. We all must learn to let and allow God and His Word to break down strongholds that have been set up or raised in our lives, whether by wrong teachings (those from the world, as well as religious), generational weaknesses, or emotional failings. But, remember God will not "force" us to do His Word, or renew and change your mind-sets, you must love Him enough to yield to Him. Keeping this in our hearts, we must be so very sensitive that we can hear His voice speak to us, (whether through His Word, by precious Holy Spirit, and or through the five-fold ministry gifts. As He speaks we will be so well trained that we quickly obey. Never let fear be your motivation for anything now, only be moved by God. We again will share one of the prophetic words that was given to us in one of our services. May you always have ears to hear and hearts to obey Him.
Remember to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that love them. (Ps. 122:6)
Many of my children are trying to make My Word work according to this world system. They are trying to make My Word conform to their culture, and make it work according to their own design, and their plan, and their scheme, and it will not. I Am God and I Am trying to bring you up to another level where you actually begin to do My Word, and be like Me. For My Word is the only thing that will work at this time, and in this age, and in this season, it is the only thing that will never change. It is not based on the culture, it is not based on your race, it is not based on your gender, it is not based on your feelings, neither is it based on the shifting world, it is not based on any of those things. It is based on Me because I Am God and I Am truth, I Am fixed, never changing, I Am not moved by temporary shifts in this world, because I have spoken the end from the beginning, and know how they are separated.
As you lean on Me, you will come to know for yourself that I Am your protector, your shield, your reward, your counselor, your wholeness, and wellness. You will not be moved by any force other than Me, and knowing Me, you will not let fear enter your soul. See, I know the way, I know the plan that I have for you, I know the design, and the destiny that I created for you to walk in. Oh, if you would only yield to Me then your plan will conform to Mine and you will find, says the Lord, that the end is good. But if you keep trying to make My plan submit to yours, and try to make Me do what you want to do to please you, it will never work. That is a "spirit of deception", that will make you believe a lie, and not hear or understand the truth of My Word. But if you yield to Me it will bring fruit and that fruit will be something that will remain and you will enjoy and be glad about it. You will be glad you turned your face to Me, you will be glad you yielded to Me, you will be glad you allowed My Word to work on the inside of you.
Stop thinking like this world and begin to think like My Word, for My Word is the only thing that will hold you up and preserve you no matter what comes and no matter what goes. It is the only stable thing in your life, it is the only fixed thing that will never change. Every thing else around you will change, yes, it is destined to change, but My Word will remain the same and if you yield yourself to My Word and My promises, you will never change, you awaken in My likeness. You will be unshakable, you will be immovable and nothing shall divert you, nothing the enemy brings across your pathway will make you stumble. You will finish the course that I have designed for you, you will receive the reward that I have promised unto you. The goal will be ran with enduring strength, and the crown of righteousness will be yours, and I will have such delight in you.
"Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord." (Ps. 112:6,7)
"As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness." (Ps. 17:15)
"I have fought the good (worthy, honorable, and noble) fight, I have finished the race, I have kept (firmly held) the faith. [As to what remains] henceforth there is laid up for me the [victor’s] crown of righteousness [for being right with God and doing right], which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me and recompense me on that [great] day—and not to me only, but also to all those who have loved and yearned for and welcomed His appearing (His return)." (2 Tim.4:7-8)

and gives mercy for a band new day. I Am the God who causes you to find rest,
even in the midst of difficult circumstances and situations. I Am the one who
walks beside you, and I will never leave you nor forsake you.
I Am the God who understands and sees and knows what you are going through and I offer unto you my great counsel and wisdom if you will allow me to. I will speak again and again, if you obey, I will enlighten your path. I Am your love, one who will always be for you. I will never leave you, no, I will never forsake you. I will never give up on you as long as you stay in My hand. I will continue to make you into My very image, until in the end you look like Me. When you awaken, you will be like Me, it is My purpose and My design and I take delight in forming and fashioning you into My very image. Sometimes this is difficult and hard for you to understand as you go through and I say, “This is not my way”, so I must change that in you, and sometimes you refuse to bend and then it is hard, so it seems as if you are breaking but now learn to yield! Every time you yield you will be made stronger and become like Me for I am your Father, your God!

My goodness has extended from generation to generation. I Am going to reveal and uncover to you just how good I have been to you through generations, because it is by My spirit, My love, and My mercy that you stand here today. It is not through your wisdom, your insight, or any ability of your own, nor is it by your own strength. It is by My grace, and My mercy that you stand here today in a sound mind, serving me with your whole heart because I have been at work throughout ages to bring you to this place and to this point. I have never quit nor given up on you, and I will not if you will not quit on me, I will stay faithful to you all the way to the finish line. The goal is perfect, and the finish line is perfect, and those things that I have designed and planned for you, they are perfect. Even though the way to them bring you through many trials, tribulations, pitfalls, and snares, the end is perfect, for I am perfecting everything on the inside of you.
I Am making you whole and sound, yes even through the times of difficult things. I Am still at work on the inside of you, for I Am fashioning and forming you into the very image of my dear Son who gave it all, the giving of his life for you, so that you might be whole, so that you might be well, so that you might be perfected. I Am opening up a little more light, more understanding, and more insight so that you might comprehend the depth of what has been done to save your soul, and that you might truly give Me glory, praise, and honor all the days of your life. So that you will not complain and murmur against the plan that I have for you, for it is always good. No matter what you are going through now if you could see with eyes of faith and understand that I Am working out My good plan, I Am straightening it out for your good, it is not over yet! Give Me glory right there in the midst of whatever may be going on in your life, then I will supercede everything and bring it quickly to your attention that I Am good.

"For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome." (Jer. 29:11)
Right now I Am asking My people to listen, and to be still and know. Right now I want you to be still and know, because I Am doing something that goes beyond your level of understanding. I Am going to a place that you have never gone before and it is a place in your past that I am delivering you from, in order to bring you to a place in your future, and My hands and My Word alone only can rectify those things that have been done. I Am straightening out those crooked courses, all the crooked pathway, I Am breaking those areas that have been iron in your life, those places that up until now would never bend. I Am bringing you to a place that you are pliable in My hands, where the enemy can no longer lie to you about your past; about the things of your past. I Am using the things of the past, even those things that tried to destroy you, I Am weaving them into your very being, causing you to be a unique creation so that you are stronger. Those things are not holding you from being strong but I Am taking those things and molding them in your character, as a testimony to My goodness and faithfulness, and My ability to turn what was meant for your harm to your good.
So, I Am taking the things that the enemy meant for your harm and I Am molding them into you to make you stronger, the plan that he had for destruction, I Am taking and molding to make you better. Listen to Me, every course of your life I have planned, if you will yield I will bring it to pass in your life. I Am saying to you, your yieldedness is the only thing that will affect the strength of your character and who you become. So yield to Me right now, I Am taking those things that you don’t understand, even those things that have happened in your life, even those things that you are struggling with right now, and I Am turning them around for your good.
The enemy who is a liar is telling you that I can never use that thing, that I could never receive any glory out of that, but I Am a God who raises the lowest ones up to sit with Me in heavenly places. Your life will benefit the kingdom, and will bring many lost people who are in the same place that you were, and bring them in and make them whole. I never destroy or throw away anything in you, what I do is take those things that the enemy has destroyed and I breathe life into them once again and I rectify if it is in My plan and I speak to it and I restore. So do not discount anything that is happening in your life, I Am God, and I will come along beside you, if you yield to My hand. But if you stiff your neck and you become hard hearted against Me, there will be no help.
I Am your only hope, so hold on to Me, I can change all things and I will, but it is dependent upon you yielding to My will. So yield yourself to My will and see the supernatural you that I planned from the day that you were formed in your mother’s womb, and there is nothing that I can not do. All things are possible with Me, and believe Me, I know your days, I know your years, I know the steps that you have taken. There is nothing that you have done, or, didn’t do that have not caught Me off guard but I Am faithful to My Word, and what I have spoken to you over your life, I will perform. For I Am a consistent, faithful God, I Am one that can be counted on. No matter what happens I Am your Father, I Am Abba daddy and I will do it. I am not like man, My Word is true, My promise to you is yes and amen! Count on it and watch and see what I will do with a yielded vessel like you.

My goodness is extended from generation to generation, and I love to reveal and uncover to you just how good I have been to you through generations, because it is by My Spirit, and My love, and My mercy that you stand here today. It is not by your faith, your might, or ability of your own, it is not through any strength of your own. It is by My grace, and My mercy that you stand here today in a sound mind, serving Me with your whole heart. I have been at work throughout ages to bring you to this place and to this point. I have never quit, nor have I given up on you, and I will not if you do not quit or give up on Me. I will stay faithful to you all the way to the finish line.
The goal is sure and perfect, yes, even your finish is perfect, and all those things that I have designed and planned for you, they are perfect. Even though they may come in the form of diverse trials, and tribulations, and pitfalls and snares, they are perfect, for I am perfecting everything on the inside of you. I Am making you whole, and sound, yes, even through the times of difficult things. I Am causing all things to turn for you good. Only wait for My finish.
I Am still at work on the inside of you, for I Am fashioning, and forming you into the very image of my dear Son. He gave it all, just to give his life for you so that you might be sound, so that you might be well, so that you might be completely whole. Something that your mind has not comprehended but I Am opening up a little more light, more understanding, a little more insight, so that you might comprehend the depth of what has been done to save your soul, so that you might truly give me glory and praise, and honor all the days of your life and never complain and never murmur against the plan that I have for you, for it is always good. It does not matter what you are going through now, if you could see with eyes of faith and understand it is good. I Am straightening it out for your good, just give Me glory right there in the midst of whatever may be going on in your life, then I will supercede everything and bring it quickly to your attention that I AM GOOD!

You are the prophet of your own life. Everything that you have, you have gotten by your own confessions, by your own words fueled by emotions, and the seen circumstances and situations of life. I Am saying to you today, if you will only line your words, and your confessions up with Mine, there will be supernatural changes in the things that you are receiving, and the harvest that you are having, and the things that are being produced in your life. Then by the power of My Words in your mouth, you can uproot every wicked seed, every weed that has been planted in your garden. Everything that is growing up that you don’t want, that you say you don’t want will be planted with good, continue to say the same thing that I say and not let your emotions rule and dominant. So I Am saying to you, line up your mouth completely with Mine.
Today begin to decree, even as it was spoken you, speak to the chains, you speak to the bondages, you speak to those generational curses, you speak to the weaknesses and the iniquities seen and found in your life, and in your body, and in your heart, and in your finances, and in all of your affairs. You speak to them, and then you will see a direct change by the power of your word that lines up with My Word, and supernatural things will begin to happen, your circumstances are temporary, My Word is not. Look not at the things that are seen, but at My Word. I have been waiting on your words to line up with Mine so that together we can accomplish what I have called you to do and say by my words. So today, line yourself up, begin to decree every chain broken that has bound you up, freedom over everything that hinders you, loosening over everything that captures your heart, every idle god. Then line yourself up with Me and you will see, says the Lord, I Am faithful to My Word.
I Am Faithful to everything that I have promised, I will do and I will keep my promises to you. I Am not like man, I will not lie, and if you will hold fast to every promise I have given you, and you will see them come to pass in your life.

Speak the truth, sing the truth, speak the truth and sing the truth, until it replaces the facts that you see, those that you hear, and those that you feel. Speak My Word which is truth and everything else will begin to fade into obscurity, only speak My truth in the face of the waves crashing around and over you, in the face of disaster and difficulties in your life. Speak the truth for I Am faithful to My Word and the promises that I have given you, I Am not like man that I should lie, every promise in Me is yes, and amen, so therefore all you need to do is depend upon Me. For I Am not like shifting sands, I do not change My ways, My thoughts, nor My promises, they are concrete, they are forever sealed.
Everything that I have spoken to you concerning you, is a yes, and amen. Just do not waiver because of the circumstances and the situations, nor the things that you feel and the things that you see and the things that you experience in life. Put them up against My Word and they will crumble under the weight of My Word. For My Word is sure, it is a sure foundation, it will never fail. I will never back away from My promises concerning you, I will never change, you can depend on Me. Man’s ways are wayward, man’s thoughts are out of line with Me, unless he has My Word planted in his heart, and coming from his mouth consistently. I Am ever faithful to my promise. You can depend upon Me, My Word, and My ways, for I will never change concerning you, it is already done, and if you speak the truth in the midst of the waves of circumstances and situations, eventually, I say to you they will begin to fade into darkness and obscurity in your life, only speak My Word.
"LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven." (Ps. 118:89)
"Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste." (Is. 28:16)
"For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us." (2 Corin. 1:20)
There are many voices, many voices are speaking, many voices that you listen to and give heed to. For the next 7 days I want you to abandon all other voices. The way that you will abandon them, is to pipe in nothing but worship. Worship, and as you do it will become louder than every other voice you hear, and the worship will begin to change the way you think and feel about things. It is breaking up, yes breaking open the box of the pure anointing of your God.
Think of Mary, out of everyone that was in the room was looking with disdain on her as she approached the Master, and her Lord. They were all talking and whispering underneath their breath,because of course she was not as holy they were. And who was she? They all knew she was a prostitute, they all knew her from the streets and they were thinking to themselves, "what nerve". The many voices were speaking! "How dare her to break up in this holy place, this holy moment, to come to our Master, our Lord, with her vile self". But, yet in the midst of that Jesus received her, because her box was full of worship, her box was void of self, pride, and arrogance for she recognized that she was nothing. There was a heart filled with precious worship.
And when you come to the place where you stop glorifying yourself, you realize that you are nothing without Me, then your worship will permeate the atmosphere and it will begin to silence every other voice. She had to press pass every voice, she heard them, yet she had to press in, and as she did, worship filled the whole atmosphere. If you do the same thing, press in pass every voice and worship. And your worship will permeate your hearing, your being and your atmosphere and it will change your thought processes, and then you will hunger and thirst more after the word of your God.
"Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment." (John 12:3)
"There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification." (1 Corin. 14:10)
"For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God." (Ex. 34:14)
I have drawn you with My great love and mercy, and it is My great love and mercy that surrounds you and keeps you,even now. I Am doing great and awesome deeds on the inside of you that will soon be revealed to the world. For the world has been waiting to see the true church and you will arise with power, authority, might, and dominion. For I have been dressing you and getting you ready, for your debut is soon, and the world will stand amazed at the great things that you will say, and the powerful deeds you will do. And oh, the great love that you possess, that is powerful, yet gentle, how it will touch and heal all that come near. They will be astounded as you walk with Me, and how you move as I move. You will go and speak things to others that are in a dry land, territories that have not been touched, and you will restore them to Me and heal their land. I have prepared you for this, you have been set aside, seemingly obscured, yet highly valued in My house.
You have sought My face and spent quiet time, and secret times, invested your life with Me. Would I not be a righteous God to invest more of My life in you? Go, says the Lord, and I will go with you. Speak and I will say those words, and I will back them up with signs, wonders, and demonstrations of My Spirit. Men will know that God has walked in the midst of them, for you represent Me well. This is your finest hour, yes it is our finest hour. It is not the time to give up, nor to quit, nor to look around at those that are falling away, but this is the time to sure up and square your shoulders, for you are a mighty, mighty people of God. And we are about to do the works that I have spoken to you in the secret places. So get ready, get ready, and stay ready and not allow the things of this world to catch your attention to pull you into slumber, to catch you off guard but stay sharp says the Lord. For at any moment I will call you and put you in the front line, be ready, says the Lord, for it is our time, it is our time to do the greatest work ever. So stay ready for Me.
"But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves." (Is. 61:6)
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you." (Is. 60:1)
"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn" (Pro. 29:2)
I hear the Lord saying, a surprise is coming and it is not according to the season of man. For every thing man plans comes from their mind and it is limited, not like My scope. I Am about to do something, a token if you would, to show you that I Am God and that I Am good. It will not come through the hands of normality, it will not be normal, it will not be the way that you planned it! Because I Am about to do a supernatural thing. For all who wait upon Me and put their trust in Me, I Am about to surprise you with good.
Man may have given you an evil and a bad report, but I Am will to turn it around for good. It is going to be like the season of Job, where it all seemed so hard, so difficult, so tight, but I was there, waiting on the Word. I Am waiting on your word to line up with Mine, for you can change the season with your word. And if you utter something contrary to My word it will come to pass, swiftly now, and that will surprise you too. But if you say what I say, right there, right in the midst of that "Job" season, you will have the outcome, the same harvest that Job had. So put a muzzle on your mouth. Do not utter those words of doubt and unbelief. Dual things at once, good and bad, famine and prosperity, wholeness and brokenness, peace and unrest, and it is all waiting for the discretion of your words. I Am giving a token to you and all will see and know that my favor and goodwill is upon you. Watch your words!
"Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and comforted me." (Ps. 86:17)
"And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before." (Job 42:10)
"For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield." (Ps. 5:12)
I hear your cry and I answer you. My delight is in you and I am going to do great and mighty things. I hear your cry and I answer you. I take delight in your sacrifice, and I will cause a burning fire to burn on the inside of you. You will never be the same that is My word to you and all who delight in My word and all who delight in Me, will be changed by My very word. Get ready for what I Am about to do in you, it starts right now.
If you could only see, Oh the joy that would flood your heart. I will open your eyes and give you the ability to see something in Me that you have never seen before. It is our time, it is our season, the lover and his bride, the mighty God and His gift. We are about to do some awesome things, yes we are. Things that this world has never seen, and you are ready says the Lord. Yes, you are ready, says the Lord, so I have come in the midst of you to let you know how pleased I am with you.
So give Me all the glory, and all of your praise, in advance, by faith, and you will find yourself hidden in a secret place, where My power transcends time, and you will walk like never before in a fresh new mind and attitude. It is our season, it is our time, hold your head up high and get ready to do the mighty things I have called and ordained you to. Get ready, for I Am about to do it in you. This is supernatural!
"But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace." (Ps. 37:11)
"The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing." (Zeph. 3:17)
"Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come." (Ps. 102:13)
For all who desire to renew their love once again for Me, and have their longings, and the unctionings and their flowing in Me, to burn bright and fresh, I Am about to resurrect the areas that the enemy tried to sign and seal as dead. For I Am a God of life and I Am bringing fresh new life to those areas that was once dead, so you get ready for the breath of God to blow in through you, to blow through your mind, to blow through your emotions, to even blow through your will, says the Lord. For I have ordained it this day, set aside for you. You must yield to My blowing to bring My wholeness. There have been many times in your life where things should have died, but I passed over because I saw the blood and My blood is the keeper, My blood is the preserver, My blood is the resurrection, My blood is the life that sustains you, says the Lord.
And because you have honored Me by humbling yourself this day in worship to Me from a pure heart, I see, I hear. I respond right now to you in great magnificent love and mercy, for I will do those supernatural things. And I have told you once and I tell you again, there is a token for those who believe Me, there is a token for those who understand, there is a token for those who would see Me with eyes of faith. I Am performing in your midst supernatural signs, wonders, in your midst right now. I Am moving things that have been blocked, they have become stagnant because of the enemy and his interference in your life.
But now says the Lord, I Am removing the blockades, causing those things that were once iron to become flexible and bendable in My hand, to bless you, for I am your mighty God. I Am the delivering God, I Am the God who is the captain of the hosts and I Am more than enough, I Am a God who is sufficient in every area of your life. For there is no weapon that is formed against you that shall defeat you or even cause you to bow your knee to it. Now says the Lord, even right now, in the midst of whatever the enemy is telling you is going on, I say no, and now your words must line up with Mine. I say I have a plan for good and My plan for good is coming to pass for you right now!
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."(Jer.29:11)
"I will go before you and level the mountains [to make the crooked places straight]; I will break in pieces the doors of bronze and cut asunder the bars of iron." (Is. 45:2)
"Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah." (Ps. 24:8-10)
I hear the Lord saying,
a surprise is coming and it is not within the timing of man, or the season expected.
For everything man plans in their mind without acknowledging Me, is outside the
scope of My will. I Am about to do something, a token, if you would, to show you
that I Am God and that I Am good. It will not come through the hands of man, it
will not be normal, it will not be the way that you planned it. But I Am about
to do a supernatural thing. For all who wait upon Me and put their trust in Me,
I Am about to surprise you with good. Man has given you an evil and a bad
report, but I Am about to turn it around for good. Dare to believe Me again.
It will seem like the season of Job, where it was hard, so difficult, so tight, but I was waiting on the word and a humble heart. I Am waiting on your word to line up with Mine, for you can change the season with your word. And if you utter and believe something contrary to My word it will come to pass swiftly, and that will surprise you too. But if you say what I say, right there, right in the midst of that Job season, you will have the outcome that Job had. So put a muzzle on your mouth. Do not utter any words of doubt and unbelief. A humble person, speaks My Word and believe my word, no matter what is going on around them. They will have trained their inner man to wait as I perform My word with signs following. This is the season of two things at once happening, famine and prosperity; drought and record rainfall; record deaths and record births; good and bad all around and it is at the discretion of your words. You have always determined your harvest, but now the timing is intensified.
Now,concerning the marketplace it has been wobbling, it has been over-weighted by greed and selfishness, and it is on a thin axis. The change has been long coming and it will be swift. Many have put their trust in the things that they see, and in the things that they do and in the things that they acquire, but the change is coming and the wind is shifting. And those who have been building upon a firm foundation, they will stand, but if your trust has been in what your hands can do, and if your trust has been in what you can see, and if your trust has been in this world and temporary circumstances, and the material circumstances of this world you will wobble and fall off of your axis. But if you stand faithful, trusting Me, even when the marketplace that you are in crumbles and comes to an end, and it seems like there is no other avenue, I have already opened a way for you. When one door closes, I have already opened an enlarged one for you to walk through. Do not look to man’s hand and do not put your trust in man. If you have built a foundation and trust in man, right now I say to you, begin to demolish it, pull it down, or it will fall down upon you. Put your trust in Me, I Am trustworthy, I will open a door for you, I will cause you to walk through that door and it will be a door of blessing not a door of cursing. It will not be a door that closes upon you, but a door that opens wide and on the inside of that door will be all the things that are necessary to see you through. It will be just what you have wanted and waited for. My token to you, My beloved.
"Sing, O barren one, you who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who did not travail with child! For the [spiritual] children of the desolate one will be more than the children of the married wife, says the Lord. Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes, For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left; and your offspring will possess the nations and make the desolate cities to be inhabited." (Is. 54:1-3)
"There I will give her her vineyards and make the Valley of Achor [troubling] to be for her a door of hope and expectation. And she shall sing there and respond as in the days of her youth and as at the time when she came up out of the land of Egypt." ( Hos. 2:15)
"Some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God." (Ps. 20:7)
Beware of the "I go a fishing" mindset. Many of My children have gone back to their old mindsets and their old ways. They are still sitting in My house and still declaring that I Am Lord, yet they have allowed their ways and their minds to go back to leaning on their own reasoning. It started by not renewing their minds with My Word on a daily basis, they let a little of their old thoughts set up a stronghold once again. They counsel others from the place of reasoning, leading them astray and directing them away from the place of trusting Me and leaning on My Word. Their counsel is from fear and deceit.
This is not the time for sliding back to your old patterns and old idols. Renew your mind, and continue to renew, and you will be refreshed, and cast down all other thoughts that rise up above My Word. These are the vain imaginations that were once so familiar to you, it was natural to follow these mindsets, but then you began to change the way you thought and lined your heart with Me. As time went on and circumstances withstood My Word that was coming forth from your mouth, you began to slide back from My promises, first making excuses for why things did not work out the way, and in the time you felt it should have. After awhile you started choosing your old mindsets over My Word, thinking I would not do what I promised in My Word for you personally. You, like My disciples chose to lean and trust in the once '"familiar".
Know and understand this, if you choose your ways and allow your mind to plan your ways, you will eat the fruit of your hands and your "idol" will bring you despair. The fruit of your choice will be doubled and the results will come back faster. It is time to be still and know that I Am God. Know that I desire for you to really know that I Am faithful to My Word concerning you, and there is no time or circumstances that can stop Me from fulfilling My plan for you. Only "one" can hinder and bring to halt My purpose for you, and that is you! You must cooperate with My plan and purpose by continuing to believe and trust Me. I need your whole heart to line up with Me and My word, you can not be double-minded. I have said that a double-minded man is unstable in all of his ways. That person will receive nothing! This is easy to understand, you can not really stand and after having done all, stand therefore, when you are unstable. That means you waver between My Word and your thoughts. This person is always leaning towards the "one" that will bring quick and easy satisfaction, and "one" that does not require any faith. Beware, and "do not go back fishing", for it will profit you nothing. Do not put your trust in the arm of the flesh, for it can not bring you to My best, it can not deliver, provide, make whole, or place you in the center of My will, it will bring depression, destruction, demotion, and deceit.
I will help you to stay pure in your trust and keep you sound of mind. Run to My Word, let My Word be the measuring stick for all things. Come back to your First love and I will see to it that you finish the race that has been set before you. As you submit your way to My divine way, you will increase and bear good fruit that you will enjoy as well as others. Do not slide back into old patterns and mindsets, exercise endurance and patience with joy. You will continue to grow in your knowledge of Me into a clearer and deeper intimacy with Me. Commit your way to Me, trust Me and I will bring it to pass. You will not be disappointed in My counsel, nor My way, it is oh so very good!
"Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing." (John 21:3)
"For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds. [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)," (2 Corin. 10:4-5)
"Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind. For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything [he asks for] from the Lord, [For being as he is] a man of two minds (hesitating, dubious, irresolute), [he is] unstable and unreliable and uncertain about everything [he thinks, feels, decides]." (James 1:6-8)
"A man’s [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil]. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life]." (Pro. 18:20-21)
The Spirit of the Lord says, that some time ago He warned us about the spirit of offense, that it would be strong and that it is sent from the pit of hell to wrap around the heart and mind to keep one from seeing clearly and hearing clearly.
Listen clearly, it is not only going to affect your relationship with your brothers and your sisters in Christ, it is going to affect your relationship with Me. It is not worth you keeping or harboring oughts and unforgiveness, so today, you need to prepare an altar, you need to. If you want to go on to the next level with Me, and I guarantee you this morning, there will be no further advancement for you, until you take authority over it. It might seem like you are advancing because of man, because man will do anything to appease you, or to please you, but I have blocked your way until you get rid of that spirit of offense. I exalt the humble man, and I withstand the proud ones. Those who are humble are doers of my Word, they make it their aim and goal to grow up in the Kingdom. Their desire is to please Me by keeping My Word, these are true lovers of Mine.
But the proud make excuses and harden their hearts as they shout aloud to Me about their rights, and how others are taking advantage of them. I will not advance you, I will hinder everything you put your hands too. I have said that My way is easy, and that it is, because in the end, if you always choose My way, you will always come out ahead! I will correct and straighten out the crooked and hard places, people, and situations for the humble, obedient, loving child will inherit all things that I have promised. I will give you My ability to accomplish all things that I have told you to do and I will give you the grace to live like Me in the promises. You will not get lifted up in pride as long as you stay loving Me by doing My Word. So if you will let go of offense this morning a bright light and a broad horizon will open up for you. Yes, like a new day, a new dawning. See I set before you life and death and I say choose, and it’s always your choice. The fulfillment of your destiny is in your hand and in your mouth! Will you love Me by keeping My commandments?
"He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and I will manifest myself to him." (John 14:21)
"But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deeds." (James 1:25)
"But He gives us more and more grace (power of the Holy Spirit, to meet this evil tendency and all others fully). That is why He says, God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but gives grace [continually] to the lowly (those who are humble enough to receive it)." (James 4:6)
I have provided for you a safe
place, a refuge, a hiding place, a place where, even though the cares of this
world bombard and come against you, you are protected in this hiding place. No
matter what happens on the outside, you are strengthened, and you know that you
can carry on. You continue to grow from the strength you are receiving under
this covering of this waterfall. For you are receiving the fruit that is
necessary to cause you to grow, to excel, to be strong, and to have wisdom, to
have insight, to have knowledge and understanding and then when you come forth
from the waterfall, You are able and capable of doing exploits.
As you step forth says the Lord, My water begins to wash over you, in purity, wholeness, and My purging takes place. As you step out into this world, you are more than enough to face all things, for you know that My covering has no equal, and you have greater power, greater authority, greater wisdom because you have been found hidden inaccessible in that secret place that I have provided for you. Giving you My counsel of wisdom, insight, and My ability beyond your own capability, and you are no longer going to deal with the world, nor with the things of this world from your own strength, your own wisdom, your own insight, your own ability for you recognize how inept that is. And now you are totally yielded and surrendered to Me.
This is the army, the end time bride of the Lord. The one that has prepared herself and set herself aside in that secret place and have partaken of all that I have provided for them. You are the ones who walk as God's own chosen upon this earth, and men and women will begin to tremble, when you begin to walk as boldly as I have decreed and declared. Step over into the power of your hiding place and covering! This is our finest hour, even in the midst of it, when the enemy is telling you that it is not, for he is a liar and the father of lies. I have decreed and declared upon you a greatness that he can not understand nor does he comprehend, otherwise he would have stayed with Me, and yielded to My way, says the Lord. Because he’s a liar and the spirit of deception rests upon him, he tries to get you to be deceived, and confused about who you really are. For the final hour has come for My children, and I have purged them and washed them and made them to understand who they really are.
And in that waterfall there are mirrors all around and you begin to see the glory of your God and you know who you are. You and I are one. And you walk from this place, not as mere men any longer, but as the gods of your God. And you understand that I have given you all authority over all the power of the enemy and now you will decree a thing and it will be done says the Spirit of grace and mercy, from the place of the hidden and the inaccessible place of My power and My love and My mercy. For those who will yield, and yield and come aside with Me says the Lord. This is the greatness that I have ordained in this final hour.
"For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him. Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah." (Ps.32:6-7)
"Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them. Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools. They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God." (Ps.84: 5-7)
I am giving to you the "great escape" into your promised land here on earth. For some of My children it has been a wilderness experience, where you have been living from one miracle to another. Yes, you have found Me to be your provider, and your preserver there in the wilderness. Now you will experience Me in a greater capacity as both a provider and preserver, and much more. I will be unparalleled in My attention to the smallest details in bringing about My great plan for you. Your wilderness experience has caused you to develop patience as you waited on Me.
Now stand and be amazed, just when you thought it was all over for you, the sun will arise in its brightness! It will shine on the steps that you will take, they will lead you higher and higher until the day that you come home to be with Me. Your light has come. So, then from this moment on because you have committed yourself to living wholly for Me, you will ascend to the heights that I planned from your beginning! This will increase in you My joy, and you will know real joy, unspeakable and full of glory! Glory, glory that will open up to you My ways of being and doing right. The cares of this world will lose its grip from your heart and you will keep climber higher until you are found complete in Me.
I Am covering you with My shield of favor, all will begin to look and see, some will only see that you are lifted high, others who have developed their spiritual sight will see My uniqueness all over you. This is how I will give you the great escape from the old ways and the old paths into Mine. I Am arising upon you, My humble and obedient child, your due time has come. It will seem like a dream to you at times, it will be surreal! I have kept My best for this generation, those that will stand for Me in the darkest days known and will burn brighter. Those who draw closer to Me will lean more upon My hand and will hear with clarity My voice, therein following My wisdom and getting more understanding as they go on their way to enjoy the promises that I have laid up for them now. "
"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you". (Is. 60:1)
"When the Lord brought back the captives [who returned] to Zion, we were like those who dream [it seemed so unreal]." (Ps. 126:1)
"Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:" (1 Peter 5:6)
This year will be a year that
My Spirit will continue to set you free from years of a generational
entanglement and stronghold that has kept you from soaring to the spiritual
heights that I have designed and planned for you to take. This year has started
off with multiple small foxes that have tried to stunt the growth of the garden
of your heart and life, but I haven't finished my pruning yet. The "miracle
grow" that I will apply by My Spirit will jump-start My design, right in the
midst of the small, multiple foxes that have been nibbling at the fruit that has
taken years to grow.
Those years and seasons of testing and trials have never been in vain, I have been working in your heart and cutting away all things that ensnare your thoughts and your heart. Many situations have come to break your heart, but I will use those very things to make your heart firm and trusting in Me. The ministry and call that is upon your life has made room for you, I have enlarged your steps under you so that you will walk more stable and sure. Yes, the things that were so hard to endure have been turned around in your life, so that you are able to endure more. Because you have remained pliable and teachable to Me, even when other have fallen away or grown bitter because of the work that I do in their hearts, you have stayed humble.
By keeping a soft heart towards Me, you have set yourself in the place for Me to exalt you. Yes, you have conformed more and more to My Spirit in your life, so expect miracles, signs and wonders to accompany you as you step into the destiny that I have preplanned for you to live in. Only speak the word that I give, for during these times of pruning your ears have become more sensitive to My voice. I have raised you on the back side of the desert, the place where many of My servants are matured and made ready to be a "life- tree" to many that take fruit from their lives. You are now My tree of righteousness, you have not withered in the heat of the day, but have continued to bear fruit. Many have come to My tree under the guise of eating from My tree, yet their purpose has been to do harm, to bring damage to My tree.
I will not allow or let them hurt one branch of the productive and fruitful tree. I will multiply the fruit of the tree and the increase of the field. I will keep My tree protected by the angel of war, sent to protect My servants that have conformed to My purpose and plans. You will be called "the beautiful one" instead of being despised and rejected by those who are hungry, they will love the fruit you have from My own hands. I will empower those who yield to Me with more and greater grace to meet every tendency, known and unknown by man. I Am able and I will preserve and keep My faithful and yielded one and your fruit will remain.
"To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified." (Is. 61:3)
"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit." (Jer. 17:7-8)
"Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit." (John 15:2)
Dual purposes will be performed at this time. Great good for all who have stood and believed Me and great evil will be harvested for all who have walked contrary to My Word and My promises.
It will be much more than what you believe or what you have even perceived, for I have called you children of the Most High God. My plans and purposes are, "most high". Know that there are things that this world has never been able to allow you to see and that is why I call you up higher. Through dreams, visions, translations during worship, as you meditate upon My Word, openings and access to the Kingdom. So that you can take a look and gaze into the heavenlies and understand what you were made to be like. So that you can function and operate from that place and position in this realm, in the earth realm.
My purpose is so that you can affect this earth realm more powerfully than you ever could trying to rely on your natural ability. So, I say yield and surrender, stop trying to figure Me out. I Am much higher than your thought life, I Am much greater than you could ever perceive. Now yield your members and trust Me for I am well able to take you there and to bring you back with soundness and not only soundness but greater and more whole than you were before you began to climb up higher. But if you would begin to ascend the heavenly places, and the realms that I have opened up for you to ascend and envision and then walk in that, live in that, orchestrate your life from that place, says the Lord. As you do things will begin to change, you will shake up your atmosphere, you will change your environment if you will begin to operate from the heavenly sphere.
If you’ll begin to do as I say to do then you will begin to walk in the kingdom authority and power that truly is yours. You will see, says the Lord, great and mighty things will begin to happen. Signs and wonders? They only follow the believer, the ones who believe and they should be natural to you. This is not something out of the ordinary for you, it should be an ordinary thing for you to live in, for you to orchestrate and conduct your life from that place of signs and wonders and supernatural demonstrations of My precious spirit. So I say to you this day, avail yourself to Me, yield more, for I am great and I Am mighty and I desire to be great and mighty in you. There is more, and for those who are hungry and thirsty, I Am about to reveal Myself to them on another level, another place that you have never seen or known before and it takes a surrendered heart. No more room for stubborn, hardhearted, and stiff-necked hearts. And if you would surrender and if will begin to believe Me, I will do those things that you have been crying out and asking for.
I am a loving Father, and it is My desire for your to come up higher, it is My desire for you to walk in signs and wonders, it is My desire for you to have a revival at all times, in all places in your heart, in your life, in every place that your feet touch. This is My desire says the Lord. So now you are finally lining up with Me, desperate for all of Me. I say, yes, and I say amen, it is My pleasure to do so. Watch and see the miracles, the signs, wonders, and the demonstrations of My Holy Spirit that will happen to those who are surrendered!
"I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work." (Eccles. 3:17)
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:" (Ephes. 1:3)
"And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen." (Mark 16:20)
A sustained and a longer duration of worship will cause an open heaven to remain in your life. You will see and understand, the more that you worship Me, the intensity and the longevity will begin to burn within you and you will never let go of Me. And since you have been investing your whole self in Me, you will not let go of your walk with Me while others will.
There are many that will run along side of you but they are not holding tight. Yet I see the passion, the desire, the hunger for Me that you have, and so I will fill you to overflow, until you are so filled up that you begin to disappear and as you do you will see more of Me. You will hear Me distinctly, and then you will begin to imitate Me, that is when signs and wonders will follow you. Because you see, you will no longer be the one in the forefront but it will be Me. You will truly humble yourself before Me.
You will see Me do things and you will hear Me say things, you will simply pattern yourself after Me. This will be easier for you now, since this kind of dependency comes from these moments of worship where you just are wasted in Me. A place and time when you give everything you have and as you are lying there in My presence and all has been invested in Me that is when I speak and that is when you are able to hear and you become driven to obey and do. You will no longer question, you will no longer doubt. It will come through these moments that you invest your praise and worship to Me. As you give all, then I will make Myself known to you like never before.
Do not worry about being like everybody else, because everyone else is not on that same road with you and everybody else may not make it. But if you would invest your whole life to Me, there is a guarantee and a seal upon you. You will, says the Lord, see my face and we will live forevermore and I will place my glory upon you and many will see and understand that you live in the presence of your Father, and it will cause some to envy and to be jealous, and it will cause others to want and desire more. So do not be afraid, just come and empty yourself in My presence, so that I can fill you with more of Me, so that we become one. This is the glory that We have been trying so desperately to get to My people, where there is no more them but only Me seen.
"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up." (James 4:10)
"Now therefore if you will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, than you shall be a peculiar treasure to me above all people: for all the earth is mine." (Exodus 19:5)
"Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." (Matt. 7:19)
I am calling forth My sleeping beauty to rise from her slumber and from her inactivity and prepare herself for her soon coming King. There has been an onslaught of snares, traps, and deceptions sent and devised by the enemy to arrest your attention and keep you from moving forth in all that I anointed you to do. You were saved and set aside to show the world Me, through your surrendered and obedient life.
Shake from yourself the wrappings of death and dress yourself once again with the well designed wedding garment that I set aside for you to operate in and move with Me. Do so now, for you must move as if the day is almost gone. There is no more time for ill-feelings, self-absorptions, petty offenses, small thinking, and worldly-longings. It is time to rise from the grave of despair, discouragement, and despondency.
You, My bride must have no more dealings with the cares of this world, the lust of other things, and the deceitfulness of riches, these things open wide the door to the enemy and he uses them to steal what I have planted in you and devastate My gardens. Yet, in the midst of many of My intended brides losing hope and trading their costly apparel for the ill-fitted rags of this world, you have remained stalwart and strong, even though you have sometimes felt faint, you did not quit, you did not give up.
You have continuously washed your garment and purged yourself by My word. Keeping yourself from the stains of this world. No longer will you be hampered or stumble because of old grave clothes tying you up. No, you will run free toward the goal! I Am removing all that have caused you pain, hurt, and turmoil.
Now, I Am here to honor you by taking my beloved one to the highest place on the mountain of her God and lover of her soul. Where I will refresh you and strengthen you for the rest of the race. You will run with a fresh new wind, you have waited for the new wind. You will be able to breathe deeply and differently now, making quantum leaps in Kingdom affairs I Am blowing it fresh now so that you might finish with a blaze of My glory! Come forth! Hear Me as I say to you, wake up, I Am touching you afresh and anew.
"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Phil. 2:13-14).
"Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober." (1 Thess. 5:5-6)
"O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes." (S.O.S.2:14-15)
Angels are here! They have come at the cry of My people who are desperate and desperation in their hearts who long to know Me better, that long for more. Their hearts are not satisfied with where they are and they know that there is more of Me to be had. From these hearts I answer, and I answer with a declaration this day. I declare unto everyone that would hear, listen and obey, that I am about to have with you a private visitation of My glory. Those whose hearts are hungry, for I will not go any longer without answering those who cry out. I would be unfaithful if I did, and I am a God that answers the cries of His children. But do not be deceived it will not be in the ways or the manners that you have perceived in your heart.
Be alert and be attentive for I will come in ways unknown to you, yet I will come. And I will speak and every one desires Me more will hear and understand. I will visit with demonstrations of power, yet it will not be the way that you have perceived but it will be great and awesome. And I say to you, do not be like My seed Israel that missed the time of their visitation, for their eyes were not upon Me but upon the circumstances and the situations around about them and they lost hope, and they gave up hope and their trust in Me. And they believed a lie and false gods became their god, but if you would hearken to My voice and keep your eyes upon Me, you will know Me and will not miss the time of My visitation with you. But you will be enveloped in such power, and love, and grace, so that you will be the house of My glory.
Many will come as you share the glory and insight that will come. This insight of My glory will cause you to accelerate into many avenues in the Kingdom business. This is the time and the season, and an increase will come little by little by little I Am increasing hunger, thirst, power, ability, insight, might, and strength. Little by little I’m doing it says the Lord for those who are crying out from desperate pure hearts, see I hear and I answer.
Do not be caught up in the things of this world, do not look around at the things of this world nor the cares and the deceitfulness of the riches of this world. For I have said you cannot serve Me and serve mammon, you can not and I will not have any other gods besides Me. So pay attention and watch your own heart, your own life, particularly the things that are going on in your heart, says the Lord. Watch and see, I will straighten out those areas in your life as you cry out to Me. Be attentive, stay famished for Me, and look and see, says the Lord. I love doing a new thing in you and for you. I Am God and there is none besides Me.
"For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness." (Ps.107:9)
"Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them." (Is. 42:9)
"Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer." (2 Tim. 2:3-4)
I am burning on the inside of those who are hungry and zealous for me. I am causing a flame to burn, and it will burn out of control on the inside of you until it changes the outside of you. You will begin to understand things that until now, it has been like a dream, as a story that you read but all of a sudden you will step out and walk in the living story. You will become the story, the living epistles read of men, and everywhere you go signs, miracles and wonders shall follow My Word. For I Am God and I Am faithful to keep My Word. Have I not promised in My Word that signs, wonders and miracles will follow My Word and for those who continue to express and declare and do My Word. I will see to it that My signs, wonders, and demonstrations of the Holy Spirit are evident in their lives like never before. So step out of yourself and step into Me. Step into the miraculous realm of the glory of your God and see the supernatural exist in your life like never before, for this is the time and the season.
No man knows the times and the seasons except Me, says the Lord and I Am speaking to you that the times and the seasons are upon you to walk out the demonstrations of the Holy Spirit like never before. Do it by faith, do it with the boldness that I have declared upon you, for the righteous are as bold as a lion, the wicked flee when no man pursues them. So step out in boldness and do the mighty works of your God and then I will go right before and behind you and I will reward the faithful, I will reward those who seek Me. I will consistently reward those who diligently seek Me and watch and see says the Lord, great things shall begin to happen in your life. Things that up until now have never been known or heard of. I have been waiting for a people that would yield themselves and have no other love before Me, I have found an army of righteous and faithful loves.
"And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen." (Mark 16:20)
"The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion." (Prov. 28:1)
Desperate times, they do call for desperate measures. But not all desperate people react the same. Some desperate people give up and fall away during desperate times, while other desperate people keep pressing until they find what they have been searching for all their lives. They will find a deeper insight and understanding of Me. They will find the exact promises that I have made to them coming to pass in their life. In their desperate plea and that desperate situation they will then begin to require extreme measures to find and to know Me in a stronger way. They will seek me diligently and they will find more insight, knowledge, and power in Me. While at the same time the same desperate times and measures will cause others to fall away. Who will you be in the time of desperate situations. Will you be the one who cries out for Me? Will you seek Me in those dry times until the water begins to pour down from the glorious places in heaven? Seek until you be enveloped with all of the glory of who I Am, are you that one? Or will you be the one that fall away because things have become too hard and too difficult for you to withstand. You make the choice, it is not I that make the choices for you. I have given you the right to make the choice and if you have chosen to be desperate, if you have chosen to use extreme measures then I will meet you, says the Spirit of grace and mercy. I will meet you in those extreme places with My extreme glory, and My extreme goodness and My extreme mercy. I will abound to you in faithfulness and goodness says the Lord.
This is where unique individuals are created, made, formed, and fashioned, says the Lord. Through the times of difficulties and desperation, says the Lord. Then they yield to My ability on the inside of them, they yield to the working that I Am doing deep on the inside of them. It is not the outward man that I Am concerned about, it is the things deep rooted issues on the inside and I have begun to uproot those things that are not like Me and I safely plant in you more of Me. Then it begins to break through the hardness of the soil of the heart and it brings forth fruit that shall abound and remain and continue says the Lord. And this is what I have been after in you all along, a place of brokenness that I might plant more of Me, so that more of Me might be seen in you. And this is the season and the time, says the Lord, when it looks like all hope is lost, that is when your hope shall shine bright and come forth bright with grand and glorious compensation for all that you have put your hands to. I will reward you says the Lord. I Am faithful to every seed that you’ve sown in the kingdom. I am watching over it to bring it to pass in your life, not just in finances but in every area that is needful to you, to cause you to be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath, blessed only and not cursed, says the Lord. So this is My plan for you, My well-being for you, I want you to go ahead and go forth so I Am bringing you to the place of desperation where you look only to Me and then I will be your reward. I will see to it, says the Lord! I will not let you down, nor fail you, but I will produce all that I have promised you.

(John 15:16)
I pray that your New Year has started off with fresh new fire or at least a rekindling of the flame that you have for God, our Father! As you can see I have started writing once a week instead of twice a week. I pray that you are pausing and meditating on the promises of God more and taking them to heart. I encourage the saints at our church to war with the prophetic words that they receive, so I pray that you are doing the same. In other words, every time that the enemy tries to take you off of the path God has directed you on with His Word, you must bring up the promises of God and use them as a weapon against the lies, the assault of the wicked one! Here is the "prophetic" word that was given to our ministry on December 31st. Enjoy and "selah".
What will begin in you, if you let it will be like a small, small fire when it first starts. It is like the striking of a match to catch fire the burning of the dry brush and all of a sudden it catches on and it encompasses the whole forest, and it becomes a blazing inferno, this is how it will happen. So, by the end of this year, you will not recognize yourself, for you will have accelerated the call on your life.
Know that twenty signifies expectancy and redemption. I Am redeeming you by recovering all of the year 2013. Redeeming the lost time of wandering around in the land that was dry. I Am full of water, the Living water. I will refresh you. Twenty signifies expectancy and redemption. So twenty signifies waiting and it’s connected to expectancy like being pregnant, pregnancy involves the concept of waiting and expecting at the same time. So that is what this new year will involve. You have waited with expectancy, some for years, it will be manifested in your life this year with greater fulfillment. Fourteen represents a double measure of spiritual perfection. Expect this new year to be more than you have asked for or even dreamed!
So this year expect Me to redeem, in other words I will avenge, revenge, and pay you back what has been snatched or taken from you by the enemy. You will experience Me in greater dimensions as your Deliverer. (As you have prayed for physical healing, I Am healing marriages, relationships, I Am healing broken hearts, so it goes beyond your broken bodies. I Am concerned about everything that concerns you). I Am bringing you out from under bondages and burdens that were laid upon you and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm. You will understand My provision for you as a Preserver and a Protector, for many judgments will come upon those who have not heeded My many warnings that I have sent by My many servants. But for those who have put their trust in me, they will experience peace right in the midst of a storm, My preservation, My protection.
The obstacles and the stumbling blocks of the past year will become new stepping stones into your called forth destiny for 2014. Know and understand that any difficult situations and circumstances that you are not readily gotten out of, I Am using or allowing to get something out of you. My design is to make you immovable and unshakable to all things going on around you. Again I say to you, in order for you to stay on My highway you must rid and free yourself from all that will try to contaminate your high walk with Me, travel light. I want to have free access to your heart and mind so that you can move freely as My spirit beckons and directs. Sever and separate from all that divides you from Me and My word (one of the things that God showed me was some things is some people, he said sever and separate, some of you know exactly who God is talking to you about) and all that try to move you off this highway. These are snares that the enemy has used and will continue to use at this time. Stay sharp by allowing My word to cut away any old growths that keep you from seeing and hearing My voice. I will bring more clarity to you as you stay tuned to Me and stay tuned to My word. I Am causing a sharpness and a clarity to your spiritual eyes like never before. You will understand things that have been hidden or obscure to you for years. I will cause signs and wonders to be revealed to you before they happen. In other words you will see them from afar with greater depth of knowing and greater perception.
Restoration will be doubled in the lives of my children who have cried out to Me because of multiple attacks. Your voice has come up to Me and I will deliver you from the abuse that has come from others, who have been instruments used by the enemy. But for those whose hearts and hands have been hanging low and bowed under, there is coming a lifting up of the heaviness, you will experience a lightness in letting go of all weights of the past. You will experience a new and greater intimacy with Me! Expect it.
"For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after." (Jer. 30:17)
"And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you." (Joel 2:25)
