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.
"Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!" (Ps. 31:19)
"So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off." (Pro. 24:14)
"They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing ."(Ps. 92:14) "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it 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)
