Word for the Body of Christ for 2011-Young Eagles Arising--Elaine Tavolacci

One night back in August I received two prophetic dreams within a couple
of hours. The Lord brought me back to that Prophetic Word this morning
and showed me that this word is for the
body of Christ for 2011

Young Eagles Arising

Two nights ago I had an awesome dream. In this dream I was in a huge ancient place. There were surrounding mountains that appeared to be made of ivory. A lady was giving me a tour of this magnificent place but I don't recall what her face looked like, all I could remember was that her temperament was pleasant and loving as an angel. As I walked with her we saw numerous eagles in cages of wood and metal but each eagle was in its own cage. They were not all full-grown eagles but they were all different ages and sizes. As she was showing me around we noticed one young eagle that broke out of its cage by breaking the wood by pushing it up with its beak and simply walking out. Although it was an eagle, its appearance was different from a full-grown eagle because it was still young. When the lady seen this she laughed in amusement and gently put

the eagle back in the cage because it wasn't time for it to be released. There were also some young lions. There was one young lion that I knew was a female because it didn't have a mane. It was on a long leash but I couldn't understand why it wasn't vicious.
As I continued to walk with her I was looking up in amazement at the huge arched cathedral ceilings which were approximately fifty feet high and made of a beautiful engraved stone. I asked her who owned this place and she said two Jewish monks. Then I looked up and saw two gigantic ancient doors made of dark brown brass. Engraved in gold leaf in the doors were the words:
"Tallit and Tekiah".
I looked these words up the next morning and found that the tallit is a Jewish prayer shawl and the tekiah is the sound that a shofar makes.

Two hours after this dream I had another dream where I went back to that place and this time there was anointed music playing. I was talking to a man I believe was Jewish with a long robe. I seen the two ancient doors again and in front of the man was a podium with the inscription: Isaiah 45

Isaiah 45: 1 - 3
Thus says the Lord to His anointed, To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held - To subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the Double Doors, so that the gates will not be shut: I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name am the God of Israel.

This is a Prophetic word for the body of Christ for 2011

The Lord says I am raising up many prophetic voices from among you. There are many young eagles in training. As many of them are hidden away, some are in the fields, some are in the market place but each one is spending time in the secret place. They are in intercession and worshipping Me as they are preparing their hearts for what I have for them. These young eagles are being raised up to proclaim My prophetic voice and My Word to the nations. When they come before you, embrace them and do not refuse them because they are being sent forth as My representatives. Do not judge them by their outward appearance, education, inadequacies or lack of stamina. These are My chosen generation that will go forth with great power and anointing. They are warriors and have no fear of the enemies revenge. I will release to them the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches of secret places and you will be amazed what I am about to do with their lives says the Lord.

Prophetic Word for 2011 from Rusty Wimberly -- New Year, New Decade, New Word

New Year, New Decade, New Word: Prophetic Word for 2011

Prophetic Word for 2011

2011 Year of Transition
For 2011 will be a year of transition saith the Lord. For many will be shedding the old of previous years, but in this year the NEW will begin to break forth. There will be new ministries, new assignments, new kingdom strategies being released in this season. And many who are in a sleeping stupor will not see, hear or perceive my ways. For many are asleep in this hour and many are comfortable, but I am drawing a line in the sand for my church says God. I am causing a division so that those might be approved may stand out. For in 2011 I will begin to separate those apart for my service. For there is still much ground to cover and there still is much territory to take. For many will say this year that I will return. Do not listen, for there is still time and there is great patience and endurance. I am longing to see all men repent and turn to me says the Lord.

Ministry to Widows Restored and Intercession
For there will be a turning of the fathers to the children and the children to the fathers. There will be a focus on social justice yet again in this year says God because my heart is for the orphans, poor and widows. Many have forgotten the widows says God. But in this season I will pour out my blessing upon ministries that will care for them. For they are close to my heart. And I will raise them up as intercessors in my house. And they will pray in the new things which I am about to do this year. For there will me massive prayer movements across the country says the Lord. I am establishing my church as a house of prayer. For you will see exploits done through the power of prayer. For I am looking for those that will engage my throne and call upon my name. And I will reward those with faith, for faith is the substance in which pleases my heart.

Challenging of False Prophets and False Apostles
For 2011 will be a year of distinction. I will expose false religion this year and false prophets and apostles. Those who have tainted my word and have run to idolatry will be exposed saith the Lord. For I have not put my word in their mouth. They prophesy wind. They are full of hot air and showmanship. But I will reveal my true prophets who carry my word in their mouth. And when they speak I will cause the hearts of my people to shift and there will be a turning not just on the outside, but the very core of their being will be shaken. For there are many who have gone out claiming they are my prophets and claiming they are my sent ones. But I have not sent them. They have been appointed my men and they have been recognized in the stadiums, but I have not sent them. For I am using the foolishness of the earth. I am using those who are found not in the spotlight, but my hand is upon those who are hidden and fools for me, FOR I AM GOD and will not share my glory with another. Those who take credit and those who have fame and recognition will receive their reward, but those who are genuine and true will be known not just in heaven, but in the earth also. For I will give them uncommon favor. They will walk into the kings room and reveal my heart in 2011. So I am calling forth those who I have sounded, those who I have whispered in their ear. I am calling the Elijah's out of the cave to go forth in the spirit and power of my Son. There will be a messianic anointing upon the prophetic in 2011.

Footsteps Of God
As for Chicago, my plans are unfolding saith the Lord. The body is joining. The bones are aligning. And they will be directed by MY HEADSHIP alone. For I have purchased them with my own blood and I am the Great Shepherd. My sheep hear my voice and they follow me. Chicago will experience a great revival in the summer season. For the rumbling has already begun. My footsteps are causing earthquakes in the region. And I will visit Chicago in 2011. But my visit will not only come with refreshing as some suppose, but it will come with fire. There will be a great turning of the homosexual community in Chicago and many will be saved. There will be revival in the streets says the Lord. Many will go out and witness in bold power to my name. You will hear of healings in the streets. You will hear of testimonies and great deliverance. Do you perceive it? Do you hear my footsteps? Do you stand in awe of what I am about to do? I have done it says the Lord, yet I have yet to do it. For no eye has seen or ear has heard the goodness I have in store. Remove your pride and prepare your heart to receive. For many have said, we’ve seen it. And many have said “Its Here”, but they have spoken in faith, but have spoken in vain. For I have still yet more that has not been experienced, received or executed. He who has ears, let them hear.

End of Year Glory
By the end of next year, 2011, the face of my people will be transformed. As Moses, face had shone with my glory, my glory will rise upon the face of my church. By December there will be great transformation. No long will people say “I am going to church” as a weekly routine. But there will be a new attitude and perception of those whom I’ve called out. There will be great holiness and great fear that will come upon the world. There will be glory resting upon my house. Thick, tangible, weighty glory. And it will be carried where all put their feet saith the Lord. I am coming soon my beloved. Make yourself ready. I love you.

Rick Joyner: All Christians Should Know the Voice of the Lord

This teaching by Rick Joyner is on the money. It's a theme I have been hearing. We MUST get the Prophets, even immature clumsy prophets, to prophesy. If we only listen to the "Mature Seasoned" we will eventually run out. There are new voices rising. The Lion is roaring. It's time to step out. Rick Joyner writes:

This coming year the goal of our study is to be able to discern the voice of the Lord better, first for our own guidance, but also in the unfolding events of our times. Nothing is more important for us to do this year than to love God more and follow Him more closely. Only then can we love each other the way that we are called to love.

As we have learned with so many prophetically-gifted people in our church and ministry, if they will inquire of the Lord about a person, He will show them things that can help them. If they inquire of the Lord about a city, He will show them things about the city that can help it. The same is true for a church or a nation, a ministry, a mission, an industry, and so forth. It is the same gift of the Holy Spirit that reveals all of these things. Even so, after a time, prophetic people will often start to specialize in hearing God for individuals, or for churches, cities, nations, etc.

Understanding the Voice of the Lord

When I'm flying my plane, I will sometimes turn the speaker on to listen to the controllers rather than wear the headset. Almost every passenger who flies with me says they cannot understand a single word that the controller is saying and they wonder how I can. More than the volume or tone of the speaker, the reason they cannot understand the controller is because the words that are being used, or the way that they're being used, are unfamiliar to them. To prove this, I have sometimes asked the controllers if they knew the score to a big game, and when they start talking about sports or something my passengers are familiar with, they can understand them fine.

My point is that many do not understand the voice of the Lord for the same reason—the words, or the way the words are being used, are unfamiliar to them. This is basically what Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 2:12-14:

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.

Many Christians have a belief that the Lord will only speak about spiritual things, or about what He is doing in His Church, but this is not the case. Often, He will speak to us about the things that we are interested in just so we can begin to know His voice. In His own walk on the earth, the Lord spoke to people about the things that were important to them. God cares about everything we care about. God is so big that we tend to think He will only get involved in the big things, but He seems to enjoy getting involved in the most personal, even seemingly trivial matters with His people. He'll speak to you about your child's little league team or your diet. It does not have to be a problem for Him to give us counsel either—it's mostly about relationship.

As we see in John 10, the Lord's sheep know His voice and they follow Him because they know His voice. All Christians should know the voice of the Lord and easily be able to distinguish it from all of the other voices in the world. However, not every Christian is a prophet or has prophetic gifts. The basic difference between hearing from the Lord on a personal basis and prophecy is that if we have a gift of prophecy it is for others, not ourselves. If you have a gift of healing, it is not to heal yourself, but others, and the same is true with all of the spiritual gifts.

The Only Way to Mature is Through Experience

For this reason, the most prophetically-gifted people I know do not hear prophetically very well for themselves. This is because the Lord has made His Body to depend on one another so we will have to walk together as we are called to accomplish our purpose.

Think about this principle with the two best dream interpreters in Scripture—Joseph and Daniel. They were both extraordinary at interpreting what others received, but neither one of them could interpret their own dreams well. Daniel's revelations actually made him sick, and he was told to seal them up until the end of the age when their interpretation would be given.

I am making this distinction here because many people who start hearing from the Lord begin to think that everything they're getting is for the whole Body of Christ, or for the nations, when often it is just for them. Not being able to distinguish this has brought much confusion to the Body of Christ. This is one reason why much of the Body has had such bad experiences with the prophetic that they don't want to have anything to do with it now.

Learning to distinguish what the Lord is saying to us personally and what He may be saying to others simply takes maturity. I have prayed often for the power to be able to lay hands on people and just say, "Be mature in Jesus' name!" but it has never worked. The only way to mature is through experience.

You can't blame church leaders for only wanting prophetic ministry that is mature, because it takes a lot of work to help people mature. However, if you want a mature prophetic ministry, this is virtually the only way to get it. The maturing process for both the prophetically-gifted and those who will relate to them enables a true relationship to develop where the prophetic ministry can be useful.

Releasing Revival in Our Churches

Releasing Revival in Our Churches

I'll say it. The church is STUCK IN A RUT. Everywhere I go with some modifications it's the same old thing. Not that it's bad, it's just plain stale. God is not the God of the Stale. I don't have to be a prophet to know that. He's the one that said, behold I do a new thing. BUT we don't. We stick to the the tired and true. It's pretty much a few songs, a sermon and an offering. Maybe a little ministry time. Maybe a quick shot of communion. BUT nothing fresh, nothing new.

I was privileged to be part of a few Prophetic services at Crusaders Church. They were really fresh. Edgy. Great stuff.

Why? Because they were bold. Not a one man show.

Then based on those experiences I began to think a little creatively and some of the things I have experienced over the last few decades that stuck with me. Here are 28 off the top of my head. I'll bet there are 128 more.

We can do better than 3 songs a lecture and an offering. How about skipping the lecture and try doing this. I can tell you prophetically that God is fed up with the one man show.

  1. Prophecy General meeting. As long as it's not a one man show. Let the Prophets Prophesy. We don't know what God has for us because we make sure his spokesman stays seated and silent.
  2. Personal Prophecy - destinies are waiting to be released. Special time of one on one ministry declaring the word of the Lord over every comer. This proves to be a powerful time.
  3. Healing of the Body - People need healing. If you promote it, people will come out. It gives us a chance to share Jesus with them. Let's do it. Call for the sick the dying, the lame, the halt and dead. Release the captives.
  4. Impartation of giftedness - Find people who are in your congregation who need to be called out and released. Release the gift in their life. Lay hands on them. Let the Holy Spirit flow into and thru them.
  5. Restoration of purity, intense repentance and forgiveness. People have sin they have never dealt with, time to bring freedom to those living under the accusations of the devil
  6. Spiritual Baptism - People need a fresh touch from God in the Holy Ghost. The Baptism of the Holy Ghost is more than Speaking in Tongues, it's power to be a witness.
  7. A call for water baptism - If people are not baptized iin water, have a special time. And have some renew vows in Baptism.
  8. Pure Evangelism times - Instead of a teaching - a true evangelistic outreach that people can bring the unsaved to.
  9. Release of Ministries - Certain people in every church have a ministry, sometimes underground, that needs to be seen. Bring them forward, lay hands on them, commission them, embrace, endorse and send them out.
  10. Release from accusations - People are falsely accused. They must lay them down. Bitterness will eat them. Set them free.
  11. Relational restoration - Have times when people can intentionally come togetehr with one another and forgive.
  12. A night of a Pure Koinonia meal, the true Lords Supper - Eat a meal as a church in the sanctuary (if you can) and make it a communion time. See how they did it. Teach house to house communion. Take the mystery out of the communion service in favor of building the Body of Christ.
  13. Deleting memories by the Spirit of God - Many people have memories that haunt them. There is a Holy Ghost delete button. Help people find it and push it.
  14. Finding a New level of Joy of the Lord - Intentional Joy. Something new and fresh that causes outbreaks to true joy. Not a comedian. A reason for the Joy within us. And release it.
  15. A fresh washing of the Spirit by the Word - There are confessions that we can speak over one another that will wash us. It's more powerful if people speak them to each other. See Apostle John Eckhardts Never Again's for example.
  16. Answering unasked questions by the Word of Wisdom and Word of Knowledge - People have issues, decisions, direction. They don't want your opinion. They want hear by the gift of God. Do this. Trust God to be faithful to use those among you who are full of the Holy Ghost and Power.
  17. Anointing of Wallets, Checkbooks for increase - I know of many who have been in dire financial shape who really need increase. This works. I've done it.
  18. Laying our bills and debts before the Lord - See what Hezikiah did when he was facing certain ruin. We can do the same.
  19. One on One communion for Families for Unity - Sometimes taking communion as a family. Father serving his children and wife is a powerful time. It is a unifier.
  20. Discerning of spirits and deliverance of people from them - Many people are bound up in an evil spirit and need to be delivered. DO it. All that are oppressed of the devil. There are pills offered on TV for relief from depression. GOD knows how to do it better.
  21. Calling in provision according to the Lords Prayer - We can go to God directly in apprehending the provision he wants to give us. He wants us to ask. SO<>
  22. Claiming our Children according to the Promises of God’s word - Wayward children and even small children are of great concern to parents. We can help speak hope over those lost ones as parents stand for them
  23. Breaking off curses handed down over the generations - Many families suffer from generational curses. They need to be broken. They need to be handled.
  24. Repentance for very difficult sins and hurts received and given - Some people carry so much guilt over a very profound sin, or hurt they got or gave. There is hope. There is forgiveness and restoration. Offer that.
  25. A time for impartation of supernatural faith - People need to access the GIFT of faith for things that are beyond believing. If we can give them an impartation they can hang on to, they will be able to see what they hope for become substance.
  26. A time for the Release of Supernatural miracles - Some things are beyond hope. They need a supernatural miracle. This is NOT for healing. Healing is the Children's bread. This is for something that they almost dare not hope for.
  27. Release for Dreams and Visions - It's a promise. Dreams and visions. We need to offer release in these areas.
  28. Declaration of protection from evil - Some people are pursued by an evil they can't define. Help them come to grips with dealing with the evil in their lives. It's insidious. They don't have to be victims.

These are some that came to mind quickly. ONE CAUTION. These should be an EMPHASIS of the service you are conducting. Not an appendage. Not an afterthought. Not an altar call after stale service. Be careful NOT to make it wrote or like every other service. Sure a time of Praise and prayer will set the stage, but be careful NOT to just step into a new rut.

We can do better Church. WE can be LIGHT and SALT to the world around us.

Cutting the Cord - Go where you are celebrated, not where you are tolerated

I am convinced that as Christians we hang on to things too long. We depend on relationships that have no kingdom value. We find ourselves disdained by those who do not value us. We put up with this because we think as Christians we are supposed to suffer.

This is not so.

I look at Jesus. I look at his disciples. I see a pattern. They went to those who would hear them and give them the Honor they deserved. If a religious demon manifested then they shook the dust from their feet and walked away. Religious demons are on the loose. It's their last stand. Jezebel must be thrown down.

We need to do that. I hear Jesus sitting down with you and me and saying Matthew 10:

Stay away from the Gentiles and don't go to any Samaritan town. 6Go only to the people of Israel, because they are like a flock of lost sheep. 7As you go, announce that the kingdom of heaven will soon be here. 8Heal the sick, raise the dead to life, heal people who have leprosy, e]">[ and force out demons. You received without paying, now give without being paid. 9Don't take along any gold, silver, or copper coins. 10And don't carry a traveling bag or an extra shirt or sandals or a walking stick. Workers deserve their food. 11So when you go to a town or a village, find someone worthy enough to have you as their guest and stay with them until you leave. 12When you go to a home, give it your blessing of peace. 13If the home is deserving, let your blessing remain with them. But if the home isn't deserving, take back your blessing of peace. 14If someone won't welcome you or listen to your message, leave their home or town. And shake the dust from your feet at them. 15I promise you that the day of judgment will be easier for the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town.

Warning about Trouble
(Mark 13.9-13; Luke 21.12-17)
16I am sending you like lambs into a pack of wolves. So be as wise as snakes and as innocent as doves. 17Watch out for people who will take you to court and have you beaten in their meeting places. 18Because of me, you will be dragged before rulers and kings to tell them and the Gentiles about your faith. 19But when someone arrests you, don't worry about what you will say or how you will say it. At that time you will be given the words to say. 20But you will not really be the one speaking. The Spirit from your Father will tell you what to say.

21Brothers and sisters will betray one another and have each other put to death. Parents will betray their own children, and children will turn against their parents and have them killed. 22Everyone will hate you because of me. But if you remain faithful until the end, you will be saved. 23When people mistreat you in one town, hurry to another one. I promise you that before you have gone to all the towns of Israel, the Son of Man will come.

24Disciples are not better than their teacher, and slaves are not better than their master. 25It is enough for disciples to be like their teacher and for slaves to be like their master. If people call the head of the family Satan, what will they say about the rest of the family?

The One To Fear

(Luke 12.2-7)
26Don't be afraid of anyone! Everything that is hidden will be found out, and every secret will be known. 27Whatever I say to you in the dark, you must tell in the light. And you must announce from the housetops whatever I have whispered to you. 28Don't be afraid of people. They can kill you, but they cannot harm your soul. Instead, you should fear God who can destroy both your body and your soul in hell. 29Aren't two sparrows sold for only a penny? But your Father knows when any one of them falls to the ground. 30Even the hairs on your head are counted. 31So don't be afraid! You are worth much more than many sparrows.

Telling Others about Christ

(Luke 12.8,9)
32If you tell others that you belong to me, I will tell my Father in heaven that you are my followers. 33But if you reject me, I will tell my Father in heaven that you don't belong to me.
Not Peace, but Trouble
(Luke 12.51-53; 14.26,27)
34Don't think that I came to bring peace to the earth! I came to bring trouble, not peace. 35I came to turn sons against their fathers, daughters against their mothers, and daughters-in-law against their mothers-in-law. 36Your worst enemies will be in your own family.

37If you love your father or mother or even your sons and daughters more than me, you are not fit to be my disciples. 38And unless you are willing to take up your cross and come with me, you are not fit to be my disciples. 39If you try to save your life, you will lose it. But if you give it up for me, you will surely find it.

(Mark 9.41)
40Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me. And anyone who welcomes me also welcomes the one who sent me. 41Anyone who welcomes a prophet, just because that person is a prophet, will be given the same reward as a prophet. Anyone who welcomes a good person, just because that person is good, will be given the same reward as a good person. 42And anyone who gives one of my most humble followers a cup of cool water, just because that person is my follower, will surely be rewarded.

SO, if you have been treated in this way, do it now, get those dusty sandals out and shake them. It's time for a new walk with Jesus. The religious, the Pharisees, the big shots who consider themselves self important hate that you know him. They will be filled with a Jezebel spirit who's prime objective is to silence the prophetic. What's more insidious, they will pretend to prophesy, pretend to embrace it, but are wolves in sheep's clothing.

Have no part of them. What you carry is too important to allow Jezebel to silence you. As the year of the Prophet, as the Lion's roar opens up, be prepared for war. Attack will come from those who look most religious.

She's on the loose and she will take your head if she can.

Be aware and turn your back. Walk away.


"Sure, I'm a Christian"


by Rick Cruz Torres on Tuesday, December 14, 2010 at 10:58pm

But a man named Ananias—his wife, Sapphira, conniving in this with him—sold a piece of land, secretly kept part of the price for himself, and then brought the rest to the apostles and made an offering of it.

Peter said, "Ananias, how did Satan get you to lie to the Holy Spirit and secretly keep back part of the price of the field? Before you sold it, it was all yours, and after you sold it, the money was yours to do with as you wished. So what got into you to pull a trick like this? You didn't lie to men but to God."

Ananias, when he heard those words, fell down dead. That put the fear of God into everyone who heard of it. The younger men went right to work and wrapped him up, then carried him out and buried him.

Not more than three hours later, his wife, knowing nothing of what had happened, came in. Peter said, "Tell me, were you given this price for your field?"

"Yes," she said, "that price."

Peter responded, "What's going on here that you connived to conspire against the Spirit of the Master? The men who buried your husband are at the door, and you're next." No sooner were the words out of his mouth than she also fell down, dead. When the young men returned they found her body. They carried her out and buried her beside her husband.

By this time the whole church and, in fact, everyone who heard of these things had a healthy respect for God. They knew God was not to be trifled with.

~Acts 5:1-11~

Much of the western church's ministry model is broken - relying heavily on the arm of the flesh, human reasoning, psychology, and perhaps more easily understood - self confidence.

I was trained in the ministry, that any bad thoughts I had or torment I was experiencing, were the result of my sinful nature and residual demonic power operating from some hidden part of my old nature. The truth as I first received it from the Holy Spirit, a truth which was then argued away by men who were my leaders and GREAT leaders in the Christian world let me add, is still the truth today, and this is it...


Any dark thought, tormenting thing, enticement to sin...EVERY wickedness which presents itself as an option to the Blood bought believer, is the work of a demon masquerading as one's thoughts. They are but attacks which when met with abandoned praise and worship of Jesus...dissolve without harm. The more persistent one is in availing themselves of true grace, the less of a target these demons find, until fairly quickly, the Blood bought believer's chief battle is not with sin and the temptation to sin, but with the effective expression and advancement of the Kingdom of Heaven.

When one is taught that THEY have been given TOTAL power over ALL the work of the enemy...that THEY are responsible for taking up the weapons of the warfare and fighting...not from a place of defensiveness, but from the place of overwhelming VICTORY won for us by Jesus at Calvary, they are given at least the proper tools for obtaining salvation by continuing on in the faith.

The Father has been showing me that He is preparing His bride for the return of the Bridegroom, but before Jesus comes back...He will send His glory. Before He sends His glory upon the earth in unprecedented manifestations of power, He is raising up messengers to prepare His people for His coming glory.

I've seen how in the early church the people who observed the followers of the Way, were awestruck and afraid to join them. In fact, in one verse, the book of Acts says many were afraid and did not join them, while in the next verse it says great numbers of those WHO BELIEVED, joined them and were added to them every day.


Consider Jesus when approached by the rich young ruler. Today, most ministers would fall all over themselves to get that guy "saved" and plugged in...ASAP. Jesus recognized that the young man held idols in his heart and gave him the option of renouncing those idols or forgetting about joining Him!

God says the same thing today. True conversion results from true repentance. True repentance results in total freedom from every power of hell; past, present and future. True repentance ensures that the past is under the Blood, the present is under the Blood, and the future is under the Blood - because the fruit of true repentance leaves no more room for demonic rule in the life of the believer.

I say by the Holy Spirit that many conversions today are nothing more than emotional (and most not even that) decisions to "try out a new life with Jesus." As the Lord restores right understanding to His people of what a true conversion looks like, many will realize they have never even known God...they have merely known about Him, maybe encountered Him once or twice, and at best spent a lot of time in the company of others who also claim to know Him with little or no evidence to support their claim.

Becoming a true believer requires that one trust in Him and ONLY in Him...not money, not other people, not your own strength, understanding, or resources. BELIEVE in Jesus of Nazareth, that He is who He says He is, that He has actually done what He says he's done! Trust God and you shall be saved.

"Through the work of the apostles, many God-signs were set up among the people, many wonderful things done. They all met regularly and in remarkable harmony on the Temple porch named after Solomon.

*But even though people admired them a lot, outsiders were wary about joining them. On the other hand, those who put their trust in the Master were added right and left, men and women both.*

They even carried the sick out into the streets and laid them on stretchers and bedrolls, hoping they would be touched by Peter's shadow when he walked by. They came from the villages surrounding Jerusalem, throngs of them, bringing the sick and bedeviled. And they all were healed."

~Galatians 5:12-16~

I declare 2011 is the year that I experience and walk in the total liberty and freedom of Christ.

I declare Ephesians 1:18-22 Over myself, loved ones, and fellow co laborers in Ministry. I declare and "I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule, authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way."

Father I declare this is our journey and in 2011 we shall be filled in everything and in every way. And like Christ we shall be seated in heavenly places , ruling and reigning with Christ Jesus . All our enemies being made as a footstool , in Jesus Name!

I declare 2011 is a year of Miracles, breakthroughs, advancements, shifts, Alignments for Assignments, provision for vision. Divine Order, Justice of God prevailing, Divine connections as well as Holy Spirit inspired directions. I declare 2011 is the year that you Lord do what only you can do! 2011 is a year that your Glory shall shine through all that I do!

A Prophetic Observation from Apostle John Roberts

I saw this today and believe it to be worth posting. Apostle John Roberts is the founder of Faithquake.

What he says and writes is very rich. I commend it to you:

From Apostle Roberts
A recent advertisement stated "we are a spirit filled church seeking a mature man of God to lead our congregation and work with our elders. Must have degree and experience" now I ask you, what circus is in what town hiring what clown? Maybe spirit filled but Not Spirit led!

Its things like this that drive the Faithquake message to be sounding? First of all this is religion once again. the spirit of religion to do spiritual things always always always starts or begins with look at me! The spirit legion railed first or spoke first when the Christ set foot upon the sandy shore! It was already making headlines, everybody knew what the man did up in those tombs of Gadara. Making a name for itself the spirit legion went so far as to cut the man's flesh with stones! Until The Rock showed up, religion always desires to make a name for itself "look at me" or "see what we do".

There is another spirit named tradition. It gives routine and sameness validity and value, unknowing to the one being led by it that this rudiment is nothing more than a form of godliness, refusing to allow or give possibility to God's probability to change reality?

Tradition is not all bad, yet if it becomes the reason that you do a thing and not because God said it, then no matter how good it is is it is still not a God thing! If u were given a test and told to answer all the odd questions and instead you answered all the even, because you didn't want to be odd, and even if you got 100% right you were 100% wrong! Tradition must be understood that if its not God then it isn't good!

No this is not Burger King, having it your way is not a menu choice. This is a Kingdom! You have only one choice - to obey Him or obey them! Who is not WITH HIM is against HIM! Its His way or no way!


I know in whom I have believed and ....

I have some friends who are confessed atheists. They delight in making fun of Christianity and trying to tweak me. I mostly don't engage them. BUT I did today:

If you could comprehend the difference between Faith, Hope, Belief and Religion (there is a big difference) you wouldn't be so intentional in attack.

I denounce religion regularly. I Correct belief, I propagate hope and help people who have their hopes fixed on the one thing that can produce a desired end, I help build faith. Religion tries to bypass all that. We see it in our churches and in our culture. This has been a particularly rough Christmas for me. TOO MUCH RELIGION. Not enough belief in anything worthy of belief, too much hopelessness and little faith to give it substance. I had to resort to the Prophet ...Bob Dylan

Now in what do you place your belief, Your hope, Your faith? Like me, not religion. But what? I think that is the question of the age that every man must answer for themselves.

I'm already settled.

There is no argument for me.

Apparently there still is one for you...

Sorry for the Mixup

I have two blogs that I keep up. One is this one. You know it well. Prophetic emphasis.

The other is a political and economic blog. Northern Gleaner.

Sometimes by accident things are posted HERE that were meant for THERE. It happened.

SO, if you wondered, God did NOT say anything about Faux Liberal Christmas or the UAW.

Clarity is good even in the rear view mirror

Your future is in your heart, mind and mouth

As a man thinketh in his heart so is he," Proverbs 23:7

...out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Matthew 12:34

...if you say to this mountain, .... it will happen. Matthew 21:21

I have been in Pentecost for most of my adult life. I have heard hundreds of preachers. Many who have propounded the name it and claim it theology that has been disdained by many.

The problem like all theological principles is not that it's wrong out of hand, but that it's not comprehended. Many people want what positive confession can bring, but it requires a spiritual condition to grasp it: The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14

This morning I was impressed of the Lord to give what he showed me overnight.


I know and you know people who have a picture of a new car, new home or something they want on their fridge or on their bathroom mirror. Maybe you do too. I know people who will never allow any negative thing to emerge from their mouth without prompt vehement repentance and rejection of that faithless word. Somehow they believe they may have a curse on them by a careless word. Job is the example often given. It's taught that he confessed, he feared and therefore was cursed by God. Baloney. Sorry for the big theological word. BUT any others would require representations -- %$#%$*^%$. It's just not true.

You and I are a sponge spiritually. Whatever you put in comes out when you are squeezed. If a person under pressure begins to act in a vile manner, it was in there all the time. If a person under pressure finds themselves trusting God more and acting in a Godly manner under pressure, it was in there. You can't get out what wasn't in there all the time.

But what of those things we desire? Whatever we maintain our focus on is what we will get. It's a tough truth to face up to. It's easy to act all Holy and say, "I'm keeping MY FOCUS on Jesus". Yet there is so much that distracts and fills our minds other than HIM. Sports, Business, Politics, Glamor, Entertainment, Facebook-Blogging, Movies (One I frankly don't get), TV, video games, gossip, music (even some "christian music), fame and yes even churchianity can fill places in our lives, spirits and brains with so much gobbledygook that it shapes our future.

We become what we think about and then speak about. Our future is in our mouth. What comes out of our mouth is what is in our heart. What we place in our heart will change everything in our lives. Our motives. Our intentions. INTENTIONS? Even if you never intend on committing adultery if you watch enough on TV it can become your intention. Even if you never commit a violent act, if you see enough movies with mayhem as your best friend you may have an intention hidden.

For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Hebrews 4:12 NLT

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 NASB

As we approach 2011 we want to see a shift, a change for the better, a new direction; we must begin by taking MORE CARE on what we watch, hear, see. What you populate your mind with will be first in line to become your words and intentions. That will then create your future. I suspect if you were fair, you might say, there is much there that shouldn't be. What is there is polluting your spirit.

The children's song applies: (read the whole text of the song, it's meaningful)
O be careful little eyes what you see
O be careful little ears what you hear
O be careful little hands what you do
O be careful little feet where you go
O be careful little mouth what you say

IF your future is in your mouth, IF you speak out of what you have placed in your heart, IF you can move mountains with the Word of God in your mouth, then at the least we must be careful what we allow IN.

Yet spiritually many use the Diet Coke offset theory. You know what it is. You've done it and so have I. You consume a big candy bar but drink a diet coke to offset the calories. Or wash down a Krispy Kream donut with coffee and sweet and low in the belief that the bad is somehow displaced by the good.

It doesn't work that way in the physical and won't work in the spiritual. The word of God is NOT spiritual Diet Coke. If you are watching things that pollute your spirit and then wash it down with a little Bible reading, that's about the same.

It's time to go on a diet from those polluting things that are fat cells in your brain. I say this to ME. In the months and year to come, I vow to be much more careful what I allow in my brain. Not to sit aimlessly in front of the TV or Computer and take whatever comes my way like a huge bag of potato chips with a diet coke.

My future is hidden in my heart, I am filling my heart and it forms what I say and when I say it, and as I do things will change. So, if you want change, start by watching what you are placing in your heart and meditating on.

Now let's get out there and start watching little eyes what we see.

AND THAT is the Word of the Lord for someone this morning.

I am not a big fan of Pat Robertson, but this video is worth watching. He seems to have called it

This video reviews what Robertson said about 2009 and what he said about 2010. I used to watch him regularly. BUT he went further off the deep end than I could take. Seems like his prophetic gift is still intact. I guess God does NOT take back his gift. Thank GOD. I've done some really stupid things too.

A word by Diane Clark....the Year of Prophetic Access

We're in the years of birthing forth and manifestation. In Acts 16:20-21, the apostles were charged for troubling the city, teaching strange new customs that were not a part of the social order of the Roman Empire. Their message, mission, a...nd ministry were revelation and revolution, radical, yet relevant and relational. And according to Acts 17:6, the apostolic dimension turns the world upside down {or in one sense, right side up}, speaking and DOING things contrary to the social order of things, proclaiming another KING, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is time to redefine ministry manifesting the Kingdom of God and not the fears and prejudices of economic crisis.

Prophetic Access is designed to demolish religious mindsets and strongholds through teaching that returns the priesthood back to the people and raises up and releases king/priest in the global kingdom community. Here, we will begin stepping out into bold territory to declare truth, which conveys the significant importance of the entire body of Christ in advancing the kingdom of God. We desire to acknowledge new paradigms and kingdom dimensional shifts in proclaiming and establishing the gospel of the kingdom with its message, mission and present day mandate.

Prophetic Access mentality is having the perception of what the true nature of the body of Christ really is, and how we are to advance the kingdom of God through it. Demonstration and manifestation is revelation realized in divine rhythm and motion: the revelation of prophetic access is endued and flooded with prophetic perception and vision. The anointing, authority, and the agenda of the apostolic and prophetic dimension will cut to the core of the system and bring to light the corporate vision of the churches or assemblies in a given region. Working with the apostolic, prophetic access shifts and launches believer’s mentality from church to kingdom, from visitation to habitation, from encouragement to equipping, from schooling to retooling, from teaching to training, from impartation to activation, from revelation to demonstration, and from global apostolic reformation to global transformation.

• Prophetic Access mentality is a way of perceiving the truth that apostles had the anointing, authority, and agenda to help steer and navigate the global community through the headship of Christ through establishing a strong foundation.
• Prophetic Access mentality keeps the stagnation out of assemblies, and leads it into more ways of expression and advancement than introverted meetings geared only for Sunday and Mid-week.
• Prophetic Access mentality develops technologies and methodologies of forwarding and heralding the saints into its given purpose – “priesthood of every believer” and Missions.
• Prophetic Access mentality seeks for fresh new ways to pioneer the work of the ministry beyond the four walls of sanctuaries, into the ongoing measure of the commission and the mission.

With progressive spiritual momentum, preaching and the pioneering of the gospel of the kingdom, apostolic/prophetic mentality sees the ever-increasing kingdom of God filling the whole earth.

Joshua and the End-Times Army - a word for 2011 by David Smith

Joshua – the 1st mention of Joshua is in Exodus 17:9.
Joshua was an unknown before this verse; however, by the
use of the name, in its context, you can see that Joshua
was already a trusted person in the sight of Moses – the
Man of God.

In Exodus 17:14, there is an indication that the Lord
sees Joshua as the next in line for command & leadership
for the children of Israel. Indeed, after the death of
Moses, Joshua took over and led the Children of God into
the Promised Land.

This journey into the land (that the Lord had promised
Abraham and Joseph) began with the taking of Jericho – a
stronghold of the enemy. Most people do not realize it,
but the name Jericho is mentioned 12 times BEFORE the
book of Joshua. In the Bible, the number 12 is used as a
perfect number, signifying perfection of government, or
of governmental perfection. It is found as a multiple in
all that has to do with rule.

Jericho must be the one stronghold to be overcome before
the Children of God began to rule in the land that the
Lord had promised. The fall of Jericho sent echoes of
foreshadowing throughout the land. As a result of the
conquest that began with a shout – the Lord’s Army, led
by Joshua, swept through the land with supernatural power
– as long as the commandments of the Lord were kept.

The only setback for the Army of the Lord was when there
were those that chose to disobey the Words of God and lay
hold on the things of the world: fine garments, silver &
gold (Joshua 7). A household of the followers of Joshua
had chosen to seek after the things of the world (much
like Ananias & Sapphira did in Acts 5) rather than obey
the Words of the Lord.

Eternal rewards have much more lasting value than the
temporal rewards of this life. But, when believers of
God see with the eyes of Eve instead of the Eyes of
Christ, the fall will always happen. Perhaps, that fall
will not occur in this life – but there shall be loss
when the ways of the world are chosen over the ways of
the Lord.

This is the time of the year when words are set forth for
the coming of the New Year. In recent days, the Lord has
whispered – multiple times – the name of Joshua.

Hear ye, the Word of the Lord –

Moses, my servant, is dead. Now, therefore, arise, go
over into this river and unto the land which I have
already given to my Army – every place that the soul of
your foot shall tread, I have already given to you. There
shall not be any who shall be able to stand against you –
for as I was with My Mighty Men of God, I shall be with
you. I shall not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Only, be
very strong in the Strength of the Lord – and be of good
courage. Be vigilant & observe to do according to all of
My Word; turn not to the left, nor to the right, that
thou may prosper (have a good journey) whithersoever thou
shall go.

Let not the Word of My Mouth depart from thee; meditate
therein day & night; let it be to thee as the breath of
thy life – that thou may do according to all that I have
commanded and thy way shall be very prosperous and thou
shall have good success.

Now, my Army – Hear ye the Word of the Lord:

“Go; shout & run and take back the land!”

Lay hold on Jerusalem, & be God's Arrow

Bob Hartley .. word for 2011..Jesus' Plans - a "Million Times Better Than I Expected"

I don't know Bob Hartley personally. Perhaps we have met. I used to frequent Metro years ago. Was there when IHOP started. But Bob is a marketplace prophet. He hears from God as he goes about his day. He sees what is going on. When I read this I wondered if he had read what the Lord had given me a few days ago. He hadn't of course.

What he published parallels what is being said by the prophets for the next year. It's time to fix our eyes on Jesus....ALONE.

Read this whole prophetic word for 2011:

Bob Hartley:
Jesus' Plans - a "Million Times Better Than I Expected"
Bob Hartley

Jesus began to define some of His hopeful, fascinating, "beyond my greatest belief" plans that were a million times better than what I ever could consider ("'What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived' – the things God has prepared for those who love Him." 1 Corinthians 2:9). He said, "Now let's share what we're going to do in 2011."

First He showed me many in the Symphony of Hope that He was putting in place. I marveled at His wisdom, as each member of the Family of God had specific roles, timing, temperaments, sensitivities and a unique worship and one-of-a-kind love for God as Hope Craftsmen, filled with radiant hope in this Hope Reformation.

I saw such glory on people...beyond what I could ever imagine. Jesus turned to me and said, "My sons and daughters – these anointed craftsmen are more than what they think. They are more than enough in Me to handle and build out radiant Hebrews 3:13 houses of hope in the midst of these waves that are coming."

"But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called 'Today,' so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness." –Hebrews 3:13

Jesus said to me tenderly, "Remember as I show you My plans for 2011 that I'm not going to share all the answers. I'm going to purposely create some ambiguity that will lead to true dialogue, deep relationship and the right, hopeful-heart questions to ask Me in this season. I will give you and others great insights that have not been opened up to this point about My plan." He looked deep into my eyes in the most loving and hopeful way and explained, "The most important reality to Me is that I know you would not trade My secrets for any other person or reason, and that you would absorb the substance of My secrets."

He paused a moment, and then continued with that in mind. "Now let Me give you a glimpse of 2011 through My love, hope and confidence in Me so that you will see the present challenges to the nations in light of My hopeful, confident, overcoming heart. Then you can share with others from the posture of enjoying My will and being strengthened and greatly encouraged as I pull back the veil, so you can agree and pray these realities in."

The Great Symphony of Hope

From the porch swing in Heaven I reclined on with Jesus, I looked out into the distance and saw a very great multitude of people, a people who were not striving but who knew their inheritance – a vast hope and love army who believed the promise of Genesis 3:15, that the seed of Eve would rule the earth. It was the great Symphony of Hope. It is the plan of God to bring Heaven and earth together, like Jacob's ladder in Genesis 28:12, through His people.

Everyone in the Family of God was included and I watched as they went on the journey of hope together. Their hearts stayed in such a high place of inexplicable joy and hope as they stayed together, even when government realities didn't line up. Jesus began to highlight particular groups in this multitude, and He shared with such love and hope that my heart began to burn with affection for His people.

Those Who Put Out Forest Fires of Hopelessness: First, He said, "Look at those ones," as He pointed at various groups within the crowd. "They are the only ones who know how to put out forest fires of hopelessness because they are filled with overcoming, creative joy and hope. They understand the John/Nathaniel realities of being ones who have been with Jesus."

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue: Second, He pointed out another group that was to bring forth something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. He explained that something old was an understanding of the heart of God from the past; something new was an understanding of the heart of God for today; something borrowed was the anointing and power mantles of others (including Jesus) from the past; and something blue was the revelation of the heart of God for the future. They would help ambush many cities and nations of the earth with the hope of God by helping many see the Heavens open and angels descending and abiding on earth, as well as the Son of Man.

Slum Dog Millionaires: Next, He drew my attention to a group that He called the "Slum Dog Millionaires" who were ones that perceived little value in their experiences in life and didn't think they amounted to much, but He had another opinion:

"They have everything they need to offer others from their own experience to bring them from hopelessness to hope in 2011...they will go from hiddenness to a 'coming-out' party! What they had experienced would create millions and millions of hope presents and packages for those who were suffering in their particular situations. They would help bring others into a place that was called 'home,' where the rightful hope of their calling in God would come forth." He said, their lives were the connecting points in the midst of these challenges between God and the hearts of many. They would help us see the Lord who fills the earth with His glory.

Hope Orchestra Conductors: On the porch swing, Jesus showed me many other groups that I will share in the future, many of whom will act as Hope Orchestra Conductors, putting instruments into place in the Symphony of Hope. They were more than enough to handle the five Great Waves that are coming to the nations in 2011.

Five Great Waves in the Nations
(In no particular order)

Next, Jesus spoke as the King of the nations. He said, "These five great waves or challenges that are coming will turn into beautiful loving victories in Me as you keep your eyes on Me and enjoy Me. I will turn the Valley of Challenge into a Door of Hope (Hosea 2:15)."

As He spoke, my eyes were fixed on His, and there was not an ounce of fear or despair in His eyes. His face shone with a radiance and confident hope in His plans for the Family of God and the nations. It was more than convincing – it was unpretentious confidence. I watched as the waves began to rise in front of me, and Jesus held my hand with strength and surety as He explained each wave to me, as well as the hopeful solution in Him that He had prepared for His people.

The First Great Wave: Economic Challenge to Many Nations & Families

I watched as the First Great Wave of Economic Challenge came against the nations and families in 2011. Jesus said, "Financial pain is cruel...let Me put this challenge into perspective." He was so full of hope as He showed me this wave within the Biblical pattern of His goodness in the past, as in the days of Joseph, where a man of God was prepared ahead of time to save the nations in time of famine. He showed me other times in the past where He had bound the strongman and brought an open Heaven. He then showed me what could happen if the wave was not handled rightly.

As I watched the waves unfold, I felt anxiety rising in my heart, and Jesus took hold of my hand even more firmly. Then He opened my eyes to see the angels that were there helping. He said, "I told My disciples that life is more than food and the body more than clothing (Luke 12:23) because I know how people are susceptible when they are hungry to give in to wrong systems and wrong realities." He said, "I understand, and I have right realities and hope realities for you to choose now, to proactively become Hope Reformers and Benevolent Ones in the days to come."

I saw some of these challenges that would rise up and I felt such peace as I watched His creative genius and the economic solutions that He showed me as He worked through different ones who led others to God and a true Biblical hope versus becoming victims and dependent on the hand of man. It was a wonderful opportunity to see Him as Supplier in this great challenge before us!

The Second Great Wave: False Unity

Next, as we sat together on the porch swing, Jesus pointed out another wave on the horizon. I watched as the Second Great Wave of False Unity came against the nations. Jesus showed me those who would join together in wrong alliances and not around a lovesick God who was lovesick for people. Instead, they would gather around the survival of human beings and out of their desperate need would purpose to make false alliances. I saw that this false unity across the nations was fueled by many dying in loneliness and need. Many of those in need would respond to someone lending them a hand and a little compassion, though the source of help was not from God but from men who desired their own gain. There was compassion on the front end but a "bite" on the back end.

Jesus shared how this false unity was like Nimrod and Babylon in Genesis 11, where people became bricks versus living stones because they all conformed for the survival and need of one another. This was like Hezekiah in Isaiah 36-38, who came under false unity and alliances with pagan nations who promised them that they would be greatly taken care of by them, and the opposite was true. He showed me that Hezekiah had wrongly leaned on Egypt for help (and He showed me present tense nations) because he had felt so alone and didn't know how to take care of the people. He depended on false unity because it appeared to be a quick fix (and He showed me some of these present tense leaders who would do the same). Jesus also showed me how King Saul had succumbed to the pressures of the people.

Looking out over the nations from the balcony of Heaven, I saw that there were societies that could come together under wrong banners that will create false unity for the sake of survival, support, understanding and relationship. They will be obviously unified around the wrong values and gods, and it will come back to cause them harm.

Jesus went on to say, "I have caused there to be division among you in order to approve what is right, and I will point out what true unity is and will bring forth a unity that is a serious and unstoppable force. It will come from My prize people who will bring forth a 'better than' plan in God." (Then I saw countries that would align around them.)

The Third Great Wave: The "Nanny States"

Then while on the porch swing with Jesus, I saw a Third Great Wave rise up against the nations. He called it the "Nanny State" (which was wrong dependence on the hand of man), and He showed me how this third great wave is where many become like little children (as in Judges 8) looking for someone to take care of them. I saw the scene unfold before me, as these children first look to good leaders who say, "We're too busy." Then the children look to the thorn bushes and brambles (which represent evil leaders), and my heart sank as I watched them gladly agree to care for the children with evil intent in their hearts. I saw human trafficking rings, organized crime and other abuses come forth from this reality.

"Who's Our Daddy?" I felt the fire and passion of Jesus as He showed me the injustices to the children (and these were children not only in age, but in a sense, these children represented all of us, from CEO's of major corporations to housewives) and all of us were asking, "Who's our daddy? Who will take care of us?" He wants to answer that He is our daddy, instead of us turning to a "nanny state" and becoming wrongly dependent on the government.

The scene melted away before me, and it was He and I alone again on the porch swing, and He said, "Come closer to Me and look into My I enough?" I cried as I felt the areas where I had not trusted Him to be enough. But then He smiled at me and He expanded my mind and broke every paradigm about who and what I was dependent on, and how dependent I could be on Him and His solutions.

I was totally speechless for a long time...and if you know me, that is not the norm! I was in such awe of His capacity and compassion in this encounter. I saw Him bringing forth Hope Craftsmen who would be filled with pleasure to solve these injustices with lovely, hopeful conclusions. I saw them begin to rise up and say to the children of the nations, "You have a Father in Heaven who will help to build you in hope and give you the true and hopeful advanced tools that will equip you for all you need in the future."

His Loving, Enjoyable Discipline

Jesus shared with me that there are those in the Family of God that He has a loving, enjoyable discipline for, because they have a proneness to being cared for wrongly as victims. This discipline would deliver them and they would be able to then feed and build themselves on the true and hopeful knowledge of God and not be raised as cripples. They would be equipped to appropriate who God is now and at every stage of their life.

"They have no concept of My greatness in them or in who they are in Me... Little disciplines open up the right doors to see Me properly and will go a long way, like adoration, thanksgiving, and inquiring of My heart...these will lead to decrees from Me that will bring transformation at the deepest level."

Then Jesus stressed to me that I and our Deeper Waters team (with a group of others He has shown us) have a responsibility and privilege to be Patriarchs and Matriarchs of hope that will not only deliver the children but will help build and develop them in hope and abundant life in Him that was a million times more beautiful than we could ever imagine.

He shouted, "Now, now, now is the time to be filled with hope miracles!" He was giving us an invitation to be leaders of hope to help the children to smile at their future. He said, "A thousand times more than you, a million times more than what you think! Think of Philip, what a dynamic life, He translated in the blink of an eye! You've missed the beautiful hope miracles that have happened!" He said, "I am the beautiful God who has designed a future that has never entered the mind of man...and I'm inviting you into it."

The Fourth Great Wave: False Heroes with False Hopes

In confidence and in unpretentious perfect rest, Jesus showed me the Fourth Great Wave that would come against the nations. It was a wave of False Hopes that will come forth from False Heroes. He said that these false heroes will try to remind us of our worries and our doldrums and failures and try to keep these before us. This is what they were designed to do, and then they would site themselves as the answer. When we had an itch in the spirit they would offer us a scratch in the soul...meaning that their answers would be the 1 John 2:16 lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the boastful pride of life as a way to deal with the pressures, challenges and disturbing emotions that will arise from these waves.

As Jesus watched these false heroes and observed their inferior beauties and lesser answers, He laughed, "You've got to be kidding! They will be no match for My wondrous, high heavenly ways which are full of mental and heart genius that will free people from misery." I watched as these false hopes began to turn the people into slaves and they became dependant on care systems and wrong compassions which steal their unique identity.

From the balcony of Heaven with Jesus, I saw nations where the Holy Ghost Hope Glory Train would go, and then He showed me that our nation in these next few years is going to make a choice between false hopes and true Biblical hopes. I saw that most in our nation could rely on the false hopes of ever-increasing wealth from wrong sources, growth and wrong dependence on a system to take care of them.

I watched as many were living on entertainment to avoid reality and were not dependent upon God. Jesus said, "Look over there," and He pointed out some of the false hope leaders of the past that were covered in dark thinking. I saw that many of them had great intentions and were trying to do good, genuinely desiring to help people, but they had tried to help through a humanistic mindset in their own strength rather than dependence on Him. They all had the same goal, for people to be cared for, but the real issue was who they were depending on to provide the needed care.

The Fifth Great Wave: An Incomplete Understanding of the Kingdom of God

Next, Jesus showed me the fifth Great Wave that was key and was misunderstood by the Body of Christ. It was an Incomplete Understanding of the Advancing Kingdom of God. "True understanding of the Kingdom of God is hoping in Him and experiencing His smile and fullness of life now."

He showed how the Body of Christ has been educated in wrong ways, and how it's going to take such a great hopeful determination and discipline shift in our education of who He is and who we are and our futures in Him, to understand our roles as loved image-bearers and our awesome authority in Him to bring forth divine destiny and a Hope Reformation.

Jesus was passionate about this, and He said, "I will bring forth exponential learning in 2011 regarding what the true Kingdom of God is all about." He showed me that there has been a limited view of Him and His Kingdom, and He showed me nine distinctives that were new to our understanding in how they were Biblically walked out. He had a grand, glorious, hopeful, positive invitation for all of us. He said, "You won't lose your brain or heart, but be open to hearing Me in the present tense invitation into this most fundamental lesson, of how you might live with Me in this age of faith and hope and overflow with love for yourself and others today."

He shouted, "I want to open up the Kingdom on a whole new level that will meet the needs of the coming days with hope miracles, and a hope way of living through Hope Patriarchs and Matriarchs and Hope Craftsmen. It will be so beautiful!"

At this point, Jesus became very excited as He rolled out His blueprints for 2011, because He had a "greater than" plan and an overcoming, hopeful solution for each and every challenge that would come against His people. I leaned in closer as He shared His confident hope-filled answers with me... to be continued.

"If I Pray nothing bad will happen to me"....NOT TRUE!!

David Wilkerson Today



“And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications….
And I prayed unto the Lord my God, and made my confession…. And while I was
speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people
Israel…” (Daniel 9:3, 4 and 20). These were praying men!

You see, the first commitment they had made—to live a separated life—had to
be backed up by a second commitment, to be seekers after God. Indeed, it is
impossible to live a holy life without spending much time on your knees,
seeking God for the power and authority to lead such a life.

Don’t be mistaken—faithful praying will not keep you out of a crisis. On the contrary, most likely it will bring you to a fired-up furnace and a lions’ den. But prayer will prepare you to face it all with trust—to become a living sacrifice for Jesus’ sake!

Daniel’s praying led him straight to the lions’ den. And this test came years after that of the Hebrew men—when Daniel was in his eighties! This may frighten you, if you wonder how long it will be before you stop having crises.

Perhaps you thought you’d learned all your “important” tests after a certain number of years in the Lord. Yet, here God is allowing one of his greatest prayer warriors—a man of a quiet, tender spirit—to face the crisis of his life after decades of faithful intercession!

Beloved, the testing only ends when Jesus comes—or when you die in Christ!

This is why prayer is so important. You can make a commitment to live an undefiled life—but that commitment is impossible to fulfill without also having a commitment to seek God.

Pawns will overtake Kings in 2011 - A word from Fletch Whipp

Pawns will overtake Kings in 2011

Fletch Whipp

In 2008 The Lord spoke to me regarding a time where He would be walking down the line inspecting what His body has been doing – in His name. He was inspecting them like a carpenter inspects timber to see if it’s free of knots, and warping, and blemishes that would otherwise make it useless for Building. In the last few years we have heard many large ministries filing for bankruptcy, or falling due to moral failure, or unethical dealings.

In 2011 what you have seen thus so far will increase. Almost everyone will be able to identify with a particular ministry, missionary, or church that will be affected by this sweeping change. Many will say I am judging them and bringing misfortune upon them, yet I tell you that I am motivated by love, not anger. My love for the lost outweighs My ability to remain compassionate with leadership who have become comfortable, and turned a deaf ear to the leading and listening to My Holy Spirit. It is My love for them, to see them reignited by the flame of My Spirit that will remove them, not My anger.

There is a vision of a chessboard representing the church. You will see pawns will overtake Kings in 2011. Many key pieces will be toppled from the board, some will remain and slide into irrelevance. Some will return after a time of searching their heart, and learning to be re-trained in hearing My voice. Sadly, others will depart permanently. I tell you the enormous historic fires in Israel are symbolic of the cleansing fire that is now sweeping through My Church. Cleansing must always begin in My house first. Many of your Churches, Ministries & Missionaries will be challenged.

Many churches will seek to blame their adversary, the devil, for coming against them, yet It is not the Devil coming against them, it is My Holy standard challenging their flesh, and their flesh will not be able to stand. You will be surprised at some, some who you have looked up to and esteemed so highly, whom will fall away because they chose not to be anchored in Me when the storm came. They relied on, and were content to operate with revelation that no longer fits the environment they operate in now. As a result their wineskins will burst. As an appendix that bursts affects the entire body, so to will it be when those burst, that the entire body will feel the shock as it reverberates around the body. I command you, some of you will be raised up to show compassion and provide comfort for those who have fallen. Do not judge, leave that to Me, I command you to show them compassion.

I have already spoken to my Prophets that you will recognize My own by the fruit that they produce. Though my vineyard has shrunk, and disease has plagued those throughout my vineyard, removal of the diseased ones will allow a healthier breeding ground for those that remain. I will supernaturally breathe upon those that remain and they will yield more fruit than the vineyard achieved previously. There will be rapid planting with healthy new ones who will grow quickly in this most healthy environment.

Why must this pain happen to the church? It is essential that healthy leadership are in love with the lost as I am in love with the lost are established before the largest outpouring by My spirit takes place the world will ever see, as the final hour approaches. Can you not sense the groaning in the Earth for.the manifestation of the sons of God to rise?

The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.The fiery furnace that is refining many in this hour is done so that I will truly have a giant of an army mobilized and ready to be activated when the season arrives. (Romans 8:19-22)

Many who have been wandering the wilderness, hiding in caves, run out of churches and wounded by the saints are yet to have their finest hour. The pain of the pit that Joseph felt will soon wash away as my training ground has prepared them to do greater works than their former days. I will move them from the pit to the palace. Their maturation developed through sheer adversity has allowed them to know when to move and when to halt. Many of my horses who were locked in the gate, are no longer chomping at the bit in their mouth, nor kicking to get out. They now remain in perfect peace, and alert for when I open the gate and release them. My horses remain stationary with eyes fixed on Me.

2011 will be indeed a glorious year of triumph, yet also a year of great distress. Choose this day whom you will serve. Choose this day to be open to My Spirit. Choose this day to go when I say go, and to sit when I say sit. Choose this day to remove yourself from your titles and positions and think in terms of My body, and your role within it. The day is rapidly approaching where people will be desperate to seek Me in you, and no longer seek revelation through the religious structure. They will say, ‘Do you KNOW Him?’ and you will answer ‘Yes, I know him personally’. And they will say to you, ‘tell me about Him so that I too can be saved’. The highest motivation of love will be fully operational which will allow unity to prosper, and unity will allow My Spirit to move among you in ways that you cannot fathom in this present time. Once again I will display My power in supernatural ways that have rarely been seen in these last two generations, and once again, from My house, I will hear the sounds of unity and love that will bring in My presence says the Lord.
