God's End Time Army
June 13, 2013
The bible speaks of King David's
mighty army in 1 Chronicles 12:8. Some of them were Gadites who the bible
describes as men of valor, men trained for battle, who could handle shield and
spear, whose faces were like the faces of lions, and were as swift as gazelles
on the mountains. The Lord showed me this scripture as an analogy of His end
time army. His end time army is called to great exploits and will march together
The Lord says, I am raising up an end time Army who are strong and very courageous. I am looking for men and women of valor. They are those who are bold, and defiant in battle. As you stand immovable and refuse to be intimidated, I will cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; and they will come out against you one way and will flee before you seven. I am calling forth the warriors who will never retreat when the adversary comes against them because I have trained their hands for war and their fingers for battle. To those who I place on the front lines are those who are able to stand against the warfare, and to them I will reveal the secrets from the kingdom of darkness and expose their strategies. My warriors will recognize that it is not flesh and blood that they are battling against but of powers, principalities, rulers of darkness and wickedness in high places. They are highly experienced and proficient in the performance of their duties and they know their mission. They are those who understand the significance of wearing the full armor of God. They know their rank and are submitted to their authority therefore they stay in the position to which they were assigned.
I am looking for those who are bold and ready to face challenges, tenacious in spiritual warfare, alert and watchful of the enemy. They are those whose faces are like the faces of lions. Those who see them recognize the strength and determination that they carry. Their enemies see the tenacity inside of them, therefore they cower back in fear. They do not become discouraged and will never compromise. They are as fierce lions against the kingdom of darkness and they will stand immovable in the face of adversity. They are as swift as gazelles on the mountains, mobile, active men and women, ready to fight wherever and whenever they were needed. They will watch out for one another and be careful to avoid friendly fire. Those who enlist in My end time army will never have to be concerned with the wiles of the evil one because they know that I am standing with them at all times. As My end time army emerges, I will give them the wisdom, discernment and understanding as I reveal and My strategies for the days ahead says the Lord.
Deuteronomy 28:7 The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.
1 Chronicles 12:8 Some Gadites defected to David at his stronghold in the wilderness. They were brave warriors, ready for battle and able to handle the shield and spear. Their faces were the faces of lions, and they were as swift as gazelles in the mountains.
Psalm 144:1 Blessed be the Lord my Rock,Who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle
2 Timothy 2:4 No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.
Warning: Contents Under
June 6, 2013
The Lord gave me this word
yesterday after taking notice of several signs throughout the day. One sign
read: "Warning, contents under pressure". As I looked closer it also said
"Highly Flammable". Later on in the day I had seen several other signs which
read "Shock Hazard" and another read "High Voltage". These signs caught my
attention as the Holy Spirit gave me this word. There are so many people who are
living under extreme much pressure due to challenging situations which they are
facing. For some of you the pressures in your lives are overwhelming. Jesus has
a plan for you no matter how things appear in the natural.
The Lord says, no matter what the situation is that you are facing, do not be overwhelmed with distress. Give no place to worry or disturbing thoughts. I will release you from torment and confusion as you set your mind on things above. I will once again come through for you in every area. I will lead you to the correct choices in every dilemma. As you quiet yourself before Me, and allow Me to take up total residence in your life, your decisions will be made through peace. Trust in Me to provide all your needs. Take your eyes off the circumstances and allow Me to lead your life. Trust in me when all else fails. Don't be consumed with anxiety which will also bring turmoil into your home. This is the time to position yourself to be bold, be strong, and follow My leading. I will never bring harm to you for My Word will prove true as it is forever settled in heaven. When your problems seems to be overwhelming, place them in My hands and refuse to submit to the pressure that is coming against you.
In the natural the things in your life may seem out of control but trust Me to bring you out. That very thing that is coming against you will be your greatest testimony and you will come out stronger as you endure and resist the temptation to give in to fear. Do not be swayed the wrong way and do not allow the tension to take you in a different direction from My plans and the abundant life that I have for you. As you stand steadfast in these trying times, you will come forth as gold. Do not submit to the lies of the enemy who will try to give you a fear of your future. I Am your healer, I Am your deliverer, I Am the God of your destiny and I Am with you in the fire of affliction. Although it may look seem as if the waves of adversity are pulling you in a vortex, be at peace. Rejoice at all times and know that all that I have promised to you will come to pass. As you release everything and trust Me, your victory is assured says the Lord.
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Colossians 3:2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
Partakers of His Divine Nature
May 30, 2013
The Lord says, I have created you
to be partakers of My divine nature. You have been called and set apart for My
purposes and plans. My kingdom shall be manifested on this earth as it is in
heaven through those of you who understand this spiritual reality. As you value
My word, you will walk in a new authority. It is those who know Me, spend time
with Me, and have developed a personal relationship with Me which others can not
comprehend. Those who are partakers of My divine nature are those who receive
what I have given to them and release it to others. They position themselves and
are always ready to receive a fresh revelation. My presence will once again be
evident in your life as you walk in a manner worthy of your calling. I am about
to release My Shekinah glory once again on this earth and I am seeking those
whom I could trust to be carriers. The spiritual realm will become just as real
to you as the natural realm and you will begin to discern the mysteries of
As you rely on Me in all things, you will see the kingdom advance in your life as well as those around you. As you understand what it is to partake of My divine nature you will begin to bring this reality into your homes and will see your families change. You will contend in intercession to have it brought back into your schools as well as your countries. You will always defend the faith no matter what the cost. A new voice will arise from My people as they begin to walk in a different way than the world walks. They are those who are not conformed to the pattern of this world. As you empty yourselves of everything concerning the carnal nature, you will learn what it is to walk in the divine nature. As you submit yourselves to righteousness you will being to walk in a new way. As you conform your lives to My word, your mind will be transformed. Allow My kingdom to begin on the inside of you. You have been called to advance My kingdom on this earth and those who are partakers of My divine nature will do so says the Lord.
Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
2 Peter 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
1 John 2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
No Place for Compromise
May 23, 2013
Two nights ago I had a dream of a young girl
approximately ten years old. She came over to me and she said, I could see
things in people just as I am reading a newspaper and I see these things very
clearly. I knew that this little girl had a genuine prophetic gift from God so I
asked her, what kind of things do you see and what do you see in me? She
responded in one word "compromise". I then replied, that is a big word for a
such a young girl. When I woke up this is the word that the Lord gave me.
The Lord says; many are living a compromised life and this is the reason why you are not receiving the full benefits of what I have for you. Some are in a place of compromise where you are comfortable in what you are doing and you no longer have guilt or remorse over the things that you once knew were wrong. You have been content in this place for so long that your conscience as well as your spiritual perception is seared. As you allow the conviction of your heart to rule as it once has, you will once again be content in your relationship with Me. You will delight in My word once again. You will take pleasure in prayer once again. As you abandon everything that is bringing compromise in your life, you will no longer be misguided by the enemy of your soul.
Don't stay in this place of complacency any longer. Let go of anything that is holding you back from fulfilling your assignment. The further you go in the way of compromise, the more difficult it will be to get back on track. Don't complain that the path is too narrow but rejoice that you are able to walk where others have not walked. Don't complain that the trials are too long, rather be grateful that you have the strength to endure. Don't complain that the mountains are too high but rather be thankful that you are able to climb to a higher level. Whatever causes you to sin, cut it off. Keep pursuing the plan that I have for your life. As you examine yourself and make the proper adjustments, you will soon desire in your heart to move on to a greater level by walking in righteousness says the Lord.
Matthew 7:14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Romans 12:11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.
Revelation 3:15-16 "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot I will vomit you out of My mouth.
May 9, 2013
Yesterday was a beautiful day as
the sun was shining, the sky was blue and the Spring foliage was in full bloom.
As I walked out of my house, there seemed to be an unusual freshness in the air.
I sensed a cleansing, a refreshing and a newness. As I looked up into the sky,
the Holy Spirit spoke these words to me: "Sneak Preview".
The Lord says I desire to give my people a sneak preview of things to come. As you open your spiritual eyes you will begin to see things on earth as they are in heaven. You will begin to recognize that which I am revealing to you. As you tune your ears to the frequency of heaven, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying "This is the way, walk in it". The door is open for you to understand kingdom principles in a new way. The door is open to receive revelation at a new level. I will release My glory in your lives in a way that you have not yet known. You will know things before they happen as you stay in intimate communion with Me. Your words will release change and carry weight. There is so much more available to you as you follow My leading and listen for My voice. As you decrease and allow Me to increase, My plan for you will begin to unfold. Many of you have cried out that the warfare has been so intense and the battle never seems to cease but as you stand steadfast, you will recognize the enemies tactics and know how to avoid his pitfalls.
Do not be confused by opposition but know that I am working on your behalf. As the enemy tries to magnify the difficulties in your life, turn your focus back on that which you learned from Me. Your situations are minuscule in comparison to My promises and provisions for you. Ask Me for discernment in every situation and I will give it to you. Never forget the Covenant that I have made with you. Go forth without fear or wavering and soon the assignment that I have set out for you to do will be clear. You will surely see a shift in your life on earth as it is in heaven. Never try to comprehend spiritual things with your natural mind. I have created you to be unique as a light to dispel the darkness. You have been created with a plan and for a purpose. Before I formed you in your mothers womb I knew you; and before you were born I sanctified you. You have been created to be a sign and a wonder says the Lord
Psalm 119:18 Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law.
Isaiah 30:21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying," This is the way, walk in it," whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.
Jeremiah 33:3 Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.'
John 16:13-15 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.
That I May Know Him
May 2, 2013
The Lord says, I am calling you into a
relationship with Me. Not just to know of Me but to know Me in a personal way.
As you walk with Me, you will be one with Me. As you talk with Me, you will
learn to communicate with Me and recognize My voice. You will no longer be in
doubt or fear because you will know that I am for you and not against you. I
will show you what it is to abide in Me. You say that you want to know My ways
and as you abide in Me you will learn of My ways. You will know the direction to
go as I will give you discernment and show you the paths to avoid. Trust in Me
to make the crooked paths straight, and the rocky roads smooth as you pursue the
plans that I have for you.
You will understand that "the fear of the Lord" does not mean to be afraid of Me. You will know My secrets as well as My power. You will understand My leading because I will lead you in peace. You will receive revelation with ease as you follow My word because My word releases light to those in darkness. My word will release deliverance to those of you who are under the shadow of death as it becomes a light to your path. It will guide your feet into the ways of peace. As you remain in Me and I in you, you will come through into victory. As you trust your life to Me, I will fulfill the purpose that I have for you. It is through a relationship with Me that this will be accomplished. I no longer call you servants, I call you friend says the Lord.
Psalm 25:14 The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.
John 15:15 I no longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
Philippians 3:7-11 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
"A WAY OF ESCAPE"
April 18, 2013
Since the beginning of time people have been
looking for a way of escape. They may be unhappy, insecure or just bored with
their lives and they want to escape reality. Many are looking for a way of
escape from emotional pain, physical pain, tormenting thoughts from their past,
financial difficulties or toxic relationships. People find ways of escape
through alcohol, drugs, eating, sleeping, watching television, or by spending
hours on the internet. Some Christians lives are not going in the direction in
which they thought that it would go. They want to go back to their past but they
can't because they came too far to turn back now. They feel stuck in the middle
of two realities, the natural world and the spiritual realm.
There is a scripture in the book of John chapter six where many of Jesus disciples no longer wanted to follow Him and they turned back. When Jesus asked His twelve apostles if they would go back, Simon Peter responded: Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Jesus has made a way of escape for us. It is not to escape reality but to come into a higher reality of His nature and His provision.
The Lord says, I have provided a way of escape. It is not a way to escape from reality but it is a place where you will make your relationship with Me part of your reality. It is a way of escape from adversity. It is a place of refuge where you could cast all your cares on Me, as you allow Me to bring your life into alignment with My spiritual principles. As you learn how to bring your natural situations into the light of My word, you will find your dilemmas will begin to cease. As you seek My wisdom, you will find the answers to your problems. It is a place to come during trying times. As you take your eyes off your circumstances and turn your focus on Me you will learn how to enter into this place. As you come into this place of abiding in Me, you will experience My ways and learn My voice. As you come into this place of rest you will develop your communication with Me and find peace. This is the place where revelation is deposited, My gifts are cultivated and My Word comes alive. This is where you will receive refreshing to your soul.
It is not to escape reality but it is a way of escape out of business and the distractions of the world. I invite you into this place with Me where you could lay your burdens down. I have provided a way of escape from temptations. Here you will find safety and peace. Allow Me to usher you into that secret place and introduce Myself to you in a new way. As you learn how to dwell in this place, you will no longer live in turmoil but you will encounter the shalom of heaven. As you learn to abide in My presence, you will find fullness of joy. You will be free from the fears and the concerns of what your future may hold. You will be free from others opinions of you. My anointing will be released to you and you will encounter Me in a new way. You will no longer be conformed to the ways of the world as you learn My realities and submit your life to My ways. As you come into My presence, you will find shalom because this is where My glory dwells says the Lord.
Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalm 32:7 You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah
John 6:66-69 From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. Then Jesus said to the twelve, "Do you also want to go away? But Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
The "Pneuma" Breath
April 11, 2013
The book of 2 Kings chapter 4 speaks of a
Shunammite woman who had a request to the Lord asking the Prophet Elisha for a
son. Elisha then prophesied to her that she would have a son the following year.
One year later it came to pass that she had a son but then the son died. She
took him back to Elisha and the child was brought back to life when Elisha
stretched himself out and lay upon him. As he put his mouth to the child's mouth
and his eyes to his eyes, and his hands to his hands, the child was brought back
to life. In the same way, the Holy Spirit wants to breathe His breath (pneuma)
The Lord says I desire to come face to face with you in the same way that Elisha did as he brought the Shunammite woman's dead son back to life. Just as Elisha lay on that young boy mouth to mouth, eye to eye, hand to hand and the boy was restored back to life. Allow Me to breathe My breath into your being. I will resuscitate you with My pneuma (Spirit). Allow Me to release a new and fresh wind of My presence into your life.
I desire to take you to levels that you have not yet experienced as you allow My breath to enter into your spirit. Allow Me to resuscitate you with My glory. Do not fear this intimacy and do not be afraid to receive such encounters. I am inviting you up to a higher place. It is a place where you will experience My presence in a new way. In this unknown venture, your eyes will be opened to the heavenly realms. Receive My anointing as I refresh you and bring you into the atmosphere of My glory says the Lord.
2 Kings 4:32-35 When Elisha came into the house, there was the child, lying dead on his bed. He went in therefore, shut the door behind the two of them, and prayed to the Lord. And he went up and lay on the child, and put his mouth on his mouth, his eyes on his eyes and his hands on his hands; and he stretched himself out on the child, and the flesh of the child became warm. He returned and walked back and forth in the house, and again went up and stretched himself out on him; then the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes.
Job 32:8 But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.
Job 33:4 The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
Psalm 42:7 Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; all Your waves and billows have gone over me.
The Sounds of Silence
April 5, 2013
Several years ago when cell
phones first became popular, there were times when two people would be
having a conversation and suddenly they would lose the call. They may have
entered what was called a "dead zone". This doesn't happen very often any
more due to the improvement in technology, but the Lord showed me this. Many
Christians today are walking with Jesus and then for unknown reasons they
lose their reception with Him. There was a time in the bible in 1 Samuel 3
when the voice of the Lord was rare and there was no widespread revelation.
Then He called Samuel as a young boy but Samuel didn't recognize His voice
until Eli the high priest told him that it was the Lord calling him. The
story goes on to say that Samuel became a great prophet and none of his
words fell to the ground. Some of you may be going through a time when the
Lord is silent, and for others, He may be speaking to you but you may not
recognize His voice. You may feel as if you lost your connection with Jesus
but that is far from the truth.
The Lord says, do not become disheartened during the times of silence. Do not become weary when it seems that My voice is so distant but know that I am with you and will never leave you. You have not lost favor with Me, neither have you lost communication. Seek Me during those times of silence and know that It is in the quiet times that I am refining you. It is in the quiet times that I am pruning you. Don't lose your focus in the process. Don't become fainthearted. I will speak in the difficult times as well as the good times. Do not give up hope in the quiet times but continue to contend.
I will speak to those of you who have lost your spiritual hearing. You who have been desensitized to My voice will hear once again. Those of you who had ears to hear will become perceptive to My voice once again. My voice is able to break through the barriers and tear down the hindrances that are blocking you from hearing. My voice will bring peace to your heart and mind. To some I will speak once again In dreams, and reveal My plans in visions of the night. I will speak in hidden things as well as things in the natural. My voice will bring victory into every situation. My voice will come through My word and intimacy.
As you spend time with Me, I will bring times of refreshing back to you. Do not try to perceive My voice with your natural mind. Never allow dismal thoughts to rule your mind but as you come to Me with expectations I will give you clarity. As you fan the flames and stoke the fire that once burned intensely with love for Me, you will rise up and hear once again. My anointing that seemed to dissipate from your life will be restored. Just as I revealed Myself to Samuel in Shiloh, I will reveal Myself to you in peace. In quietness and confidence will be your strength says the Lord.
1 Samuel 3:10 Now the Lord came and stood and called as at other times, "Samuel! Samuel!" And Samuel answered, "Speak, for Your servant hears."
Job 33: 15-16 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction.
Psalm 85:8 I will hear what God the Lord will speak, for He will speak peace to His people and to His saints; but let them not turn back to folly. Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land.
Isaiah 30:21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.
Submitted To The Call
March 28, 2013
The Lord says I am calling
the men and the woman who are mature in their faith to teach, nurture and be
mentor's to the younger ones. I am calling those of you who know Me, know My
ways and have submitted your lives to the call. I am calling those of you to
train, encourage and support those who are still on milk. I am looking for
those of you who have been delivered from the strongholds of the enemy to
strengthen the younger ones who are coming after you. Those of you who
understand the battle and are ready to serve on the front lines will be
strong and do great exploits.
I am calling forth the Josephs who have been put down and abused by others but have not taken offense. They have been dishonored and falsely accused but have not let go of their dreams. I will raise them up and reveal My goodness through their lives. I will use them as signs and wonders to the nations. They will be leaders and they will prosper in times of famine and teach others to do the same.
I am calling forth the Moses to raise up Joshuas. To train men how to be strong and very courageous. To train them in leadership and how to be tenacious in spiritual warfare. To teach them how to be more than conqueror's in every battle. To encourage them to pursue My plan and calling on their lives and never retreat in battle.
I am calling forth the Joshua and Caleb's. They are strong and very courageous and will be leaders in My great army. They are those who have a different spirit and know that they are more than able to go in possess the land that I have promised to them. They will always come back with a good report and never back down from the enemy. They will go forth in the battle because they know their authority over the giants in the land.
I am calling forth the Naomi's to train up the young Ruth's. The godly women who will comfort and teach the younger woman how to live a lifestyle of integrity, sincerity and respect. To teach them how to walk in humility, wisdom and honor in their relationships.
I am raising up the Samuels. Those who are called to speak as My voice to this generation. They have been marked from a young age. They will recognize My voice and are called to be prophets to the nations. They will discern false teachings and false prophets. They will walk in a life of victory because they are Spirit led and not led by their own desires. They know how to enter into the Holy of Holies, and will teach others how to enter without guilt or shame. Since the veil has been torn, they will come into this higher dimension, and they will receive the fullness of what I have for them.
I am calling forth the Elijah's to train and raise up Elishas with a double portion of their spirit. To train the prophets and teach the younger ones how to be used in the gifts that I have freely given. To show them how to follow in their footsteps and be used in miracles, signs and wonders with respect and reverence of the anointing on their lives. They are those who follow Me closely and will not deviate off the narrow path.
I am calling the Marys. They are those who are highly favored and are carriers of My glory. They are those who have said in their hearts, be it done unto me according to thy word. They have abandoned their lives and are impregnated with My seed. They are those who are in labor and ready to conceive. They have been overshadowed with My glory and My word dwells in them . They will produce great things as they bring forth My promises to the ends of the earth. For with Me nothing shall be impossible in their lives.
I am calling forth the Paul's who once had a different name but has been transformed. They are those who have overcome many battles. They have been delivered from the powers of darkness and will go in and rescue others. Follow them, as they follow Me and are My witnesses on this earth. They will be used greatly in miracles, signs and wonders. They will train up young Timothy's in prayer. They will teach them how to live godly lifestyles and show them how to refrain from sinful ways, and how to walk in the fear and admonition of the Lord. They will teach them to be strong in what they believe, fan the flames and stir up the gifts that were given to them. To warn them against false teachings and false prophets, and to always endure hardness as good soldiers. They will encourage them, and teach them not to be ashamed of the gospel.
As you lead these young lambs, teach them how to always walk in love and keep a good conscience. Advise them on righteousness and to have clean hands and a pure heart at all times. Be an example to do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with Me and I will be your guide. I will give you the wisdom and knowledge that is required as you submit your lives to the call says the Lord.
Mark 16:17-18 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Ephesians 4:11-13 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
Keys to the Kingdom
March 21, 2013
Jesus asked His disciples, who do people say that I
am? They replied, some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others
Jeremiah or one of the prophets." Then He said to them, "But who do you say
that I am?" Simon Peter said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living
God." Then as Jesus answered Peter, He was actually saying (paraphrased)
Peter, you have received this answer not by natural knowledge but by
revelation from My father in heaven and upon this rock (revelation) I will
build My church, and the gates of hell (imprisonment from the enemy through
the kingdom of darkness) will not prevail against it. Then Jesus went on to
say, I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you
bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will
be loosed in heaven."
Jesus was speaking metaphorically of spiritual keys. He has given these keys to us, the body of Christ. He has given us authority in His name, power to bind the works of the enemy and loose people from his grip, release others from sickness, unshackle those who are bound, unlock and set others free and demolish strongholds. Keys are small and seem insignificant but they could open huge doors. Small keys are used to open huge vaults that contains valuable possessions and keep thieves out.
The Lord says, I have given you the keys to My kingdom and the authority to use My name. These keys shall unlock the doors that will set people free from every kind of bondage known to man. These keys will unlock shackles, set people free from all demonic oppression and release many from every affliction and stronghold. These are the keys that will set those free who are addicted to alcohol, drugs and pornography. They are keys to open the tombs and deliver those who need to be set free from religious mindsets and those who are in bondage to religious rituals. They will open the prison doors and deliver those from occult practices, powers of darkness, and from all the power of the enemy. I have given you the keys that will open the portals of heaven and bring healing from every sickness and disease. These keys will also release those from poverty and open the doors of prosperity through the economy of My kingdom.
These are keys to the Spiritual gifts which will be used in miracles, signs and wonders in such a greater dimension than you have ever known before. These keys will unlock the door to your destiny and as you receive My gift of the keys to the Kingdom, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. I am releasing keys in prayer and intercession that will unlock the hidden mysteries of My word. I Am He who hold's the Key of David. When I open a door no man can shut it and when I shut a door no man could open it. I will open the eyes of your understanding on a new level as I reveal the secrets of ancient mysteries. So come before Me and receive these keys which is your inheritance as a child of God as I release these them your hands says the Lord.
Daniel 2:22 He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.
Matthew 16:19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
Colossians 1:26-27 The mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory
Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens.
Keep The Dream Alive
March 8, 2013
In the book of Genesis there is a story about
Joseph. Joseph was a dreamer. His father favored him and gave him a coat of
many colors. Because of this, his brothers threw him in a ditch and sold him
as a slave. He was beaten, falsely accused and thrown into prison. Joseph
never gave up on the dream but pursued the promises of God through it all.
Because of his faith and tenacity, Pharaoh made him the Vizier which is the
highest official in Ancient Egypt to serve the king. Pharaoh also placed a
gold chain on his neck and put his signet ring on his finger which meant
that Joseph now owned and had authority over everything that was Pharaohs.
He then gave him a new name which was Zaphnath-Paaneah which means "Revealer
of mysteries". Some of you have been like Joseph. You once had a dream but
your life seems to be going in the opposite direction. This is the word of
the Lord for you.
The Lord says, do not allow anything to steal the dream that I have placed in your heart. Never give up on what I have promised to you. I am the restorer of dreams, and My word will come to pass. Just as Josephs father, I have given you a coat of many colors. For those of you who have been betrayed by your brothers and sisters, I am the restorer of the breach. That which has been broken in your lives shall be mended. Those relationships that have been severed and disarrayed will be restored. Your families will come into alignment with My plans as they continue to observe your dedication to Me.
Just as Potiphar's wife falsely accused Joseph, those of you who have been falsely accused and lied about will be recompensed and rewarded for your integrity. As you continue to walk in holiness and not compromise or submit when others try to lead you astray, you will discover the greater plan. There is nothing hidden, that will not be revealed; nor anything secret, that will not be known and come to light.
To those of you who have been imprisoned with fear and torment, I have the keys to hell and death. Trust Me to be your deliverer and set you free. I will release you and bring you into all that I have called you to do. Don't look at things that are happening in the natural because My plans for you are beyond natural reasoning. Never settle for less than what I have for you.
Ask Me for wisdom to make your dream a reality and the faith to step out. Continue to pursue My plans without looking back to your past mistakes and failures. I will bring people into your life to help you fulfill the dream that I have placed in your heart. These will be divine connections with others who believe as you do, and will help to encourage you. Sever any relationships from people that will try to annihilate your dreams and hinder your growth.
Just as Joseph was raised from the pit to this high calling, I will bring you out of your despair and raise you up in My kingdom. Never let go of your dream but hold on with the same tenacity as Joseph had. I Am the revealer of mysteries and I will also reveal My mysteries to you. You will then have My favor and you will be ruler over adverse situations rather than having them control you says the Lord.
Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 105:17 He sent a man before them - Joseph, sold as a slave. They bruised his feet with shackles, his neck was put in irons, till what he foretold came to pass, till the word of the Lord proved him true.
Psalm 105:20-25 The king sent and released him, the ruler of peoples set him free. He made him master of his household, ruler over all he possessed, to instruct his princes as he pleased and teach his elders wisdom. Then Israel entered Egypt; Jacob lived as an alien in the land of Ham. The Lord made his people very fruitful; he made them too numerous for their foes, whose hearts he turned to hate his people, to conspire against his servants.
Ephesians 3:20 Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to
the power that works in us.
makes His Ministers Flames Of Fire
February 28, 2013
I was reading a scripture
in Hebrews chapter 1 verse 7 which says: In speaking of the angels He says,"
He makes His angels winds, His servants Flames of Fire". I looked this up in
strong's concordance and found that angels is speaking of his angels, winds,
(ruwach - Wind, breath of heaven), and his servants or ministers as flames
of (Supernatural) fire
The Lord says I am igniting My ministers as flames of fire to release My anointing to this generation. They will come in My power and with My authority and they will be ablaze with My glory. I will send them out to enkindle the flames that have died out and rekindle the embers that have been left smoldering in the lives of those who have lost their zeal. I am rekindling the fire of those in the five fold ministry and releasing them back into their position. I am rekindling the fire of those who were once used in spiritual gifts who have become weary and lost their passion. I am rekindling the fire to those who are called to go out and set the world ablaze. I will send My winds and breathe My pneuma, as I fan the flames and bring fire back into your lives and ministries. Now is the time for My Glory to be radiant throughout the land. What seemed charred, seared and stagnant in your life, will be revived as My fire ignites a new passion in your soul.
I am sending My fire across this nation and around this world and I am looking for those who will release My glory for such a time as this. They are those who are willing to lay down their lives and take up their cross. They are those who do not fear the opinions of others and are sold out to My kingdom. Those who have counted the cost and aligned their lives to My agenda will be used mightily in My end time army. They are those who will not allow the enemy to quench this fire or rattle their faith. They are those who will be set ablaze to go forth to fan the flames and stoke the fire in others. They won't allow anything to annihilate their zeal because they are strong in Me and they will go forth and do great exploits. They will stir themselves up and renew the passion that others once had in their hearts.
As you take the limits off Me, you will experience a fire that you have not known before. Don't settle for a mediocre lifestyle but receive all that I have for you. Allow My Word to penetrate your heart as a fire shut up in your bones. As you see a shifting and a shaking in the natural realm, know that there is also a spiritual shifting. There is unseen activity happening simultaneously in the heavenlies. Just as there are fires in the natural, I am sending a spiritual fire that the enemy will not be able to extinguish. Angelic activity is being released from the third heaven that no man or demon can quench. Do not fear the days ahead but know that I am releasing My glory in a magnitude which no human or devil could stop says the Lord.
Psalm 39:3-4 My heart was hot within me; While I was musing, the fire burned. Then I spoke with my tongue: "Lord, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I may know how frail I am.
Psalm 104:4 Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.
Jeremiah 20:9b But His Word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back and I could not.
Hebrews 1:7 In speaking of the angels He says," He makes His angels winds, His servants Flames of Fire".
"Restoring The Years that The Locusts has Eaten "
February 22, 2013
Every seventeen years the cicada's also known as
locusts come out in different states on different years. This year (2013)
these locusts will arrive on the East Coast of America. As I was reading
about the three different types of locusts in the book of Joel, I found that
the first locust mentioned is at an early stage of development. The second
type of locust was to devour and the third type of locust was to totally
annihilate. As I was studying this the Lord gave me this word. The three
types of locusts are an analogy of the enemy who comes to steal, kill and
destroy but the Lord wants to restore those years and bring you life more
The Lord says I will restore the years that have been ravaged by the enemy and repair every wounded place in your life. I will mend the areas that have been battered by the winds of adversity so that your emotions will be healed and your soul will be restored. I will destroy the strongholds, old mindsets and memories which the enemy has placed in your mind. I will secure the structures of your mind that have become warped and weakened. As you allow Me to uncover the hidden agendas, I will make all things new and satisfy the desolate wasteland. The turmoil that you are experiencing is because I am uncovering the secret plans and strategies of the enemy that need to be revealed. Every area of your life that you allow Me to take possession of will become fruitful. As you discontinue the hidden behavior that is not pleasing to Me, you will be released into a new level of freedom. Those of you who have been through horrendous years in your past will be totally set free. Allow Me to restore the memories that vex you and nightmares that torment you. I will pour My fresh oil, heal your broken hearts and bind up your wounds.
Don't relive the thoughts from the past and mistakes that have already been forgiven. Don't allow the enemy to lacerate old wounds. Refuse to be intimidated by those who try to belittle you. Be quick to forgive them and never allow unforgiveness to take root which will bring a root of bitterness. Although people may fail you, do not hold them accountable. I will never fail you nor break My Covenant with you neither will I revise My promises to you. Ask Me for wisdom and I will give it to you for all the affairs of your life. As you turn to Me and allow Me to renew your mind and cleanse your hearts you will find victory in the days ahead. My glory will be your rear guard and you will go out with joy and be led forth in peace. My goodness will go before you and you will be led in a victory that you have not yet known. Allow Me to fill you with new courage, strength and confidence which will redirect you into your destiny, so that you will become the person who I have created you to be says the Lord.
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Joel 2:24-25 The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. "So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame.
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Going to the Next Level
February 14, 2013
We have heard the cliché
"Going to the next level" used often throughout the body of Christ but it
takes spiritual maturity on our part for spiritual progression. The other
night as I was falling asleep I had an unusual vision of a child with a milk
mustache (which is a milk stain over the upper lip that one gets from
drinking milk in a careless way). I remembered an advertisement for milk
several years ago in which they used pictures with people of all ages with
milk mustaches. The next morning as I was thinking about this peculiar
vision that the Lord gave me, I received this word.
The Lord says, As you seek truth, and as you seek to know Me more, the eyes of your heart will be enlightened. Those who are willing to go beyond the milk of My word will align their thoughts with My word. They are those who are hungry for the meat and willing to leave foolish and childish things behind. I will give them understanding of spiritual things and My truth will become alive in them. They are those who are willing to separate themselves unto Me. They are those who not only spend time with Me, but they live a fasted lifestyle and they walk in holiness. They refuse irrational arguments and they will readily forgive others who have wronged them. They are not content with the milk, therefore they press on to the higher calling. They depend on My leading as they go about their daily chores and they know that they have been called and set apart for My plans and My purposes.
As you allow My word to become part of you and follow after sound doctrine, your mind will be renewed. You will no longer desire to submit to the things of the carnal nature. The temptations of this world will grow dim as you hunger for spiritual realities. The more that you spend time in My word and in My presence, you will find that hearing My voice will come with ease. Pray in the spirit often to build yourself up in your most holy faith and as you do, you will become more attuned to My ways. Soon you will find that as you continue to persevere, you will continually develop into the person who I have created you to be. My fire will burn away all the dross, correct the false doctrine and all unscriptural teaching that you have learned in the past. I will release discernment to see into dark places. You will understand My word with more clarity and insight.
I am filling the hearts of those who desire to know Me more. Those who are rooted and grounded will surely ascend to new heights. I will reveal My secrets to those who are submitted and seek revelation. I will make My voice known to and those who have treasured My words more than their daily bread. It is not mystical or mysterious to them because they have a personal relationship with Me. They are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness. They are those who have learned to tune in to My frequencies. Signs and wonders will accompany those who walk in My truth. Those who follow My word will walk in peace. Fear, confusion and anxiety will be far from them. So enlarge your vision and extend your boundaries and as you yield yourself to Me, My plans will be established in your life says the Lord.
1 Corinthians 3:21 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able.
Ephesians 4:14-15 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ
Hebrews 5:12-14 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
"The Rising River"
February 7, 2013
For many years Christians
worldwide have been talking about a great river of revival which is about to
hit the earth. The Lord showed me that we are right on the brink of that
river. The river is rising and we are about to step into a deeper realm than
we've ever known. Some of you are beginning to experience this in your
personal lives. There is a scripture in Ezekiel where a man (Who represents
Jesus) is measuring the depth of the waters which went from ankle deep to a
huge river that couldn't be crossed in the natural. This is where the Lord
wants to bring us.
The Lord says, I am calling you to come out into deeper waters. Now is the time to step out in faith into a new place where you have never been. Do not fear the high tides or the turbulent waters. Do not be concerned with what others think. In this time of acceleration, I am looking for those who will not back down in times of persecution. There is a dimension that is available to you and as you step into this river and allow Me to take you deeper, you will experience a new level of My glory. I am seeking those who will leave the past behind and step out into this river. They are those who have a willing heart to surrender all to Me. They are those who will humble themselves and hearken unto My voice, to usher in My river and to be carriers of My anointing in the days ahead. Do not despise the day of small beginnings. Do not become discouraged when the water is ankle deep but know that the water is rising. The days ahead will be glorious for the believers.
Many things will transpire and multitudes will be swept in to the Kingdom. Many will experience breakthroughs of significant proportions. There will be great miracles that will accompany this outpouring. Everywhere that this river flows will bring healing. Everywhere that this river flows will bring life. What seemed impossible with man will become a natural occurrence. Do not be influenced by unbelievers but know that I will watch over My word to perform it. Have nothing to do with those that try to cut off the flow of My river and don't allow anything to deviate you from this truth. Don't be critical of others who don't believe the same way that you do because there will be many streams flowing in to one. You will see that the glory of this latter house is going to be greater than the former house and in this place I will bring peace says the Lord.
Ezekiel 47:3-9 And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist. Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed. He said to me, "Son of man, have you seen this?" Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river.When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. Then he said to me: "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes.
Zechariah 10:1 Ask the Lord for rain In the time of the latter rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of Rain.
Revelation 22:1-2 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
"Come Back to Life"
January 31, 2013
Many of you are struggling
as you are going through a "winter season" in your spiritual life as well as
in the natural. You are so spiritually dry and you feel as if you are in the
valley of dry bones wondering how you could ever recover. The Lord wants to
revive those dead areas and bring you back to life.
The Lord says I am calling you to come back to life. Allow Me to remove the grave clothes that have kept you bound. I Am the resurrection and the Life and I Am awakening those dreams that I have placed in your heart and resurrecting those promises that I have made to you. I am loosing you from the death sentence that has attached itself to you, and bringing you into a life of victory. Don't allow your present situations to take you into spiritual atrophy. Allow Me to resuscitate you once again. Allow Me to bring those dead things back to life and refresh those areas that are parched and dry. I will open up the graves and restore everything that has been lifeless. Those gifts that have been dormant will be alive once again. Trust in Me as I begin to raise those things that have deceased back up, and release you from those things that have kept you stagnant.
Be assured that what I have promised to you will surely come to pass. Be encouraged and know that life will come to those situations that have been dormant. Don't be disheartened but trust Me to breathe My pneuma into you once again. You will truly be conformed to who I have created you to be as you allow Me into those areas that have been desolate and barren. Always remember that you have been created with a purpose, therefore do not consider your situations in the natural. I will pluck you out of the mirey clay of dismay. I will set you free from discontentment. I am the God of restoration and nothing is impossible with Me. Be loosed from the garments of death and "Come to Life", for your time for resurrection has come says The Lord.
Ezekiel 37:1-5 The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, "Son of man, can these bones live?" So I answered, "O Lord God, You know." Again He said to me, "Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, 'O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: "Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.
Ezekiel 37:12-14 Therefore prophesy and say to them, 'Thus says the Lord God: "Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. Then you shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken it and performed it," says the Lord.'"
John 5:21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.
Heavenly Encounters with
The King of Glory
January 24, 201
We are living in a time
when God wants to show Himself strong and reveal His glory. I believe that
we are going to experience encounters in which Jesus will prove His
undeniable power on our behalf. In the bible there is a story about Elijah
when he confronted the prophets of baal on Mount Carmel as he called down
fire from heaven. When he first encountered them he said, "How long will you
waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is
God, follow him." Jesus is asking us the same question today as He is about
to move in a mighty way once again.
The Lord says, I am the King of Glory and I will reveal Myself in this season on your behalf. I will release you into new encounters in the days ahead. Don't look for Me through other sources. Don't look for Me through strange voices. As you see the cloud the size of a mans hand, know that My redemption is drawing near. As you see the dark clouds, know that the rain is imminent. It is the darkest clouds that carry the heaviest rain. As I said in My Word: I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh, your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. I am about to do great things in your lives and ministries as I release My glory in an unprecedented way once again. As you draw near to Me, you will rise to higher heights than you have ever imagined. I will release revelation to you as you take the limits off Me. I will meet you as you step out of your comfort zone.
Allow My glory to revive you once again and release you from all spiritual lethargy. I will take you from a life of mediocrity to a life of abundance. Allow Me to open your eyes to see wondrous things. Don't get discouraged by the prophets of baal nor be intimidated by their gods. I am El Shaddai and I will show Myself strong on your behalf. Don't draw back when you are confronted but use the authority that I have given to you. To many of you this is uncommon but understand My covenant and receive what is rightfully yours. Don't settle for less that what I have for you. As you perceive the world growing darker, My glory will grow more radiant in your life. Allow My Word to penetrate deep within your heart as a fire shut up in your bones. Ask for the rain, in times of rain and I will pour out in abundance and show Myself strong on your behalf. You have not been called to live a stagnant life but you have been created for greater things for the days ahead says the Lord.
January 10, 2013
There are incredible
stories in the bible which actually happened in the natural. In the book of
Acts there are two different incidents where God opened the prison doors to
release people. In one incident, an angel came and opened the prison doors
and in another incident there was an earthquake and as the prison shook, the
chains fell off Paul as Silas and they were released. You may not be in a
actual prison but some of you are spiritually imprisoned. There are things
that are holding you captive and you do not know how to escape.
The Lord says, I have come to release you from your prison. The prison of fear that is tormenting your mind, the prison of addictions that you have been battling, the hidden sins that are distressing you. Allow Me to set you free. Allow Me to break those chains that have kept you a prisoner. Allow Me to remove those shackles that have kept you bound. You no longer have to live with the shame with the hidden agendas that you have kept in secret. I have come to release you from the strongholds that have led your life in disarray for so so long. I have come to set the captives free.
Allow me to open up the prison doors of your mind where you have thoughts of confusion that are holding you in bondage. I will cleanse and restore your thinking. You will no longer have to live with thoughts of revenge, anger and unforgiveness. As you release others, you will be released. Do not harbor bitterness in your heart or this will also keep you imprisoned. As you throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles you, I will release you of every strongholds in your life. I will break every chain that is imprisoning you and the anchors that are keeping you from succeeding. Allow Me to open the prison doors and bring you into the abundant life that is available to you says the Lord.
They laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, "Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life."
Acts 16: 23 -26
And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.
But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed.
A Place of Intimacy
January 4, 2013
The past few weeks I have
been experiencing a new level of intimacy and an extraordinary level of the
presence of the Holy Spirit. Several friends have also told me that they
have noticed the same in their times of prayer. The only way to achieve this
personal relationship with Him is to learn how to come into this place of
intimacy with the Holy Spirit.
The Lord says, as you've longed to know My voice; you've longed to know My ways, I now invite you into this place of intimacy. Come now My beloved, let me take you to this place. In this place of intimacy, I will reveal My secrets to you. In this place, you will learn to discern My voice and recognize My leading. Come with Me into this secret place. Come with the innocence of a child and with no agenda of your own. Surrender your will to Me as you welcome Me in.
As you come into this place of honor, enter with reverence. Here you will find the hidden treasures that you have been searching for. You will experience the peace that you have longed for. Do not come with preconceived notions. Discard of your old mindsets and man made traditions and come in pursuit of My plans and purposes. In this place you will receive favor. In this place I will make ancient mysteries known to you. In this place you will receive wisdom and revelation. This is the place where My Shekinah Glory dwells. You now have access to enter this sacred place because the veil has been torn and I have made provision for you. So come in to this Secret place, this place of intimacy, The Holy of Holies where My Glory dwells says the Lord.
Then He showed me a picture of the Tabernacle:
As we pass through the Outer Courts, we come through the process of cleansing and repentance. We no longer need to sacrifice animals because Jesus has become a sacrifice and shed His blood for us.
We then come into the Inner Court which is the Holy Place of His presence. This is where we commune with Jesus. Our prayer, praise and worship go up before Him as a fragrance of incense. We are to always keep our lamps burning in this place. We are then privileged to come to the next level.
We now have access into the Holy of Holies because the veil has been torn and we are invited to this place by our divine Creator. This is The Most Holy Place; The Kodesh Hakodashim. This is the place where we can venture into deeper depths than we have ever known. We must enter this sacred place with clean hands and a pure heart. We come before the Ark of the Covenant. In the ark are His tablets of stone which symbolizes His Word which is now written in our hearts, His manna which symbolizes His provision for us, and Aaron's rod that budded symbolizing that He has the power to bring life from something that is dead. The Mercy seat which we no longer have to sacrifice on, because Jesus has been made a living sacrifice for us by His atoning blood.
Hebrews 9:24-28 For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another. He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
Matthew 27:51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split,
Hebrews 10:19-22 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
Calling the Fearless
December 13, 2012
Last week there was a story on the news about a homeless man who was found walking the streets of New York on a frigid evening without shoes or socks. A policeman who had noticed him was moved with compassion and went into a store to buy the man a pair of socks and costly boots. A few days later, the homeless man was seen sitting on the sidewalk barefoot once again. He was approached by the news media who asked him what had happened to his new boots. The man replied, "I hid those shoes. They are worth a lot of money. I could lose my life over them". That man actually feared for his life, thinking that someone would kill him for those costly boots that were generously given to him. When the police officer heard about what the homeless man did, he said that he will still repeat such acts of kindness to others who are in need for the rest of his life.
Some of you are afraid to receive the costly gifts and callings that Jesus has made available to you. You are afraid of the backlash from the enemy and therefore you are not walking in all that the Lord has called you to do.
The Lord says; you have been born into this world without fear. I have created you to be fearless. You have been created to be strong rather than timid or fainthearted. I have created you with a purpose. I am looking for those to raise up and use for this end time harvest. Those thoughts in your mind are just figments of your imagination. Don't allow them to rule your decisions. Don't allow those things that you have been delivered from to pull you back like a viper using his venom to attack his pray. For those of you who have been delivered from the depths of the darkness, it is time to remember where you came from. Just as you were once strong, courageous and fearless in your past, it is now the time to use that same tenacity rather than cower back in fear. It is time to gain spiritual momentum once again for My kingdom.
I am looking for those who are bold, ready to face challenges, and adamant in spiritual warfare. Don't be afraid of the lies of the enemy. If you entertain thoughts of defeat, it will hinder you from receiving all that I have for you. Those of you who have been looked down upon, it is time to rise up to your calling. You are not unworthy to receive. Though the world may have rejected you, I have plans for those of you who have been mocked, scorned, shunned and abused. Those of you that have been forsaken and rejected it is now your time of receiving. Do not feel inadequate because no one is greater than another in My kingdom. Those of you who have lost everything, this is your season for recovering. There are no limits to what I can do with your life.
Come out of your hiding place and emerge from your comfort zone. This is the time to rise above your circumstances. Your time of slacking off has come to an end. Rise up to be the magnificent creation of what I have called you to be. Never again fear the unknown and don't be afraid of making wrong choices. Do not be concerned and wonder to yourselves how this can come to pass. This is the season to embark on new journeys and enter new dimensions in My kingdom says the Lord.
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your
God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you
with My righteous right hand.
1 Timothy 1:6-7 Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
James 2:5 Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?
Desperate For Him
December 1, 2012
Many Christians are desperate to hear from
God but they are not seeking Him. They are not reading His word or
worshiping Him in Spirit and in truth for who He is. There was a woman in
the bible who had an issue of blood for twelve years. She desperately pushed
through the crowd in faith to touch Jesus cloak knowing that she would be
healed. There was another man in the bible named Zacchaeus who was so
desperate to see Jesus that he climbed up a tree as Jesus was passing by.
When Jesus reached the spot where he was, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus,
come down immediately. I must stay at your house today." So he came down at
once and welcomed Jesus gladly. Are you becoming weary in your walk with
Jesus or are you desperate enough to press through all obstacles and pursue
The Lord says, those who seek Me diligently, will surely find Me. Those who are desperate for Me will press in no matter what the cost. As you continue to pursue Me, you will learn to recognize My voice. Do not feel inadequate or allow your human reasoning to misdirect you. There are no qualifications in the natural to connect with Me, but to receive Me as your Lord and Savior. For My ways are beyond your natural reasoning. Those who are desperate for Me will learn how to crucify all the desires of the flesh and pursue Me with all their heart. They will contend for breakthrough and seek Me daily. They will not be concerned with what other people are doing but just as Zacchaeus climbed a tree to get My attention, they will make a way to reach Me. The desperate are those who are reaching out to touch My cloak. They will be those who are not attracted to the things of this world but they will be just as Job, who treasured My word more than his daily bread.
As you spend time with Me and seek My face I will fine-tune your senses and you will receive new spiritual reception. The things that you once desired will change. As you follow My leading, I will release to you strategies for your circumstances. You will see the open door in heaven calling to you to "Come up Here" to receive divine revelation. As you come, the eyes of your understanding will be enlightened. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." As you seek Me diligently, you will learn to hear My voice with clarity. I will answer those who are hungry. I will visit those who are desperate. Your desperation, hunger and thirst is the prerequisite for receiving the revelation and the wisdom from Me for the days to come says the Lord.
Job 23:12 I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
Psalm 107:9 For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.
