The Prophetic Thelma and Louise Moment

If you ever saw the know this scene. It's the end. The ladies have been on the run. The cops are about to catch them. They have no where to turn except face the music and suffer the consequences for the mistakes and murder they have committed or to drive off the end of the cliff and commit mutual suicide.

They make a decision.

Over the cliff to certain death.

Roll Credits.

The worlds economy and in particular the USA has been warning that we had to stop running wide open, turn around and face the music. Take our very bitter medicine and be healed.

Instead in the last few days I have had the distinct impression that the other option is being taken. Just as in the movie. The cliff is just ahead. It's pedal to the metal.

There is a time for bravery in the face of overwhelming odds if God is in it. He isn't in this anymore. Of that much I am certain. Reality is about to hit.

Jesus warned of this:
Luke 14:25-35 Now great multitudes were going with him. He turned and said to them, "If anyone comes to me, and doesn’t hate his own father, mother, wife, children, brothers, and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he can’t be my disciple. Whoever doesn’t bear his own cross, and come after me, can’t be my disciple. For which of you, desiring to build a tower, doesn’t first sit down and count the cost, to see if he has enough to complete it? Or perhaps, when he has laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, everyone who sees begins to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build, and wasn’t able to finish.’ Or what king, as he goes to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends an envoy, and asks for conditions of peace. So therefore whoever of you who doesn’t renounce all that he has, he can’t be my disciple. Salt is good, but if the salt becomes flat and tasteless, with what do you season it? It is fit neither for the soil nor for the manure pile. It is thrown out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
Our culture, our leadership....we have failed to understand the cost of being salt. Our end is clear.

So, just put that pedal to the metal and enjoy the ride.

Others will now have to pick up the pieces.

Doug Addison: Watch Out for Distractions

Doug Addison

Last January I released a prophetic word for 2011 and said that the entire year will be strategic:

We will begin moving into more clarity about our destinies as God has been shifting our assignments. Similar to 2010, we will see a major increase and thrust in March of 2011 at the beginning of Spring. During April our time of waiting will be turned into a time of action. New life will come in June and by September of 2011 things that many have longed for will take more shape. (Click here to read the word in its entirety on The Elijah List).

It is time to spring into action. One of my guiding Bible verses is Matthew 7:7, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." Notice that ask, seek, and knock are all proactive steps and the door will not be open "for you" but "to you." This is a time right now to take initiative and watch and see what new opportunities begin to open.

Watch Out For Distractions

As you begin to take action, watch out for distractions in communications and technology. I have not seen such a fierce attack on communications in a very long time. The enemy is trying to cause disruption and miscommunications with people right now. The reason for this is that God is releasing divine connections that will be strategic for the coming years.

While preparing to deliver this message on my webcast on April 5, the company who hosts our live web stream went down and we had trouble with the recording. My new Macbook Pro notebook has been in the shop for three weeks and Apple still cannot figure out what's wrong. While preparing to place this article on my Blog, I accidentally nuked my custom Blog design.

If you experience technological distractions and breakdowns, don't misunderstand this to be a block. We must break through right now. As a result of all the setbacks, I asked God for full repayment of what the enemy is stealing and disrupting. Just this week I was given two brand new Macbook Pros that are of a greater value than what I had before. It is time to turn the distractions into blessings.

Divine Connections Starting Now

Many people are being called to something new right now. This is why things have slowed down on your current situation. The new has not fully come yet. Starting in April through June be careful to make choices that will open new opportunities and not repeat old ones.

Obviously you need to pray about this, but if you are given the choice to do something new versus something that you are comfortable with doing, try to stretch yourself to do the new. From this will come new connections you will need for future advancement.

The Power of a "Spiritual Passover"

Passover, which was just celebrated, is a Jewish festival that reminds us of God's greatness when He gave instructions to the Israelites in Egypt that would cause the spirit of death to "pass over" their houses (Exodus 11–12). The spiritual aspect of "Passover" is still available to us today.

When bad things happen and it appears to be judgment or tragedy in any form – whether economic, spiritual, environmental, or whatever – God will most often let His people know how to avoid it or at least how to suffer minimal damage. In some cases, God will even show His people how to profit during a downturn (Genesis 41). The key is to listen to God's voice as He speaks to us and follow the instructions that He gives.

My Dream of a Bad Storm

I had a dream earlier last year that a fierce storm (maybe the worst ever) was coming to the west coast of the U.S. It appeared that we were going to suffer great losses and maybe even die. Everyone was panicking and running to take cover. Faith rose up in me and I felt an anointing from God to stand and watch this storm. I saw a consuming fire in the storm and, just as it approached my house, it passed over and immediately it was a bright sunny day with a rainbow in the sky. I was amazed that there was no damage at all to my property or my loved ones.

I awoke from the dream realizing that we need to stand in the midst of the storms coming against us personally and as a nation. God will give us instructions on what to do and when to do it. The key is to remain at peace and do not be afraid. We need to understand that the principle of disaster passing over is still available to us today.

With all the tragedies and uncertain events happening in the U.S. and the world right now, we need to ask for God's glory to be released in greater measure. Ask God to cause the bad things to pass over you, and pray that God reveals strategies from Heaven. It is a great time to be alive!

Bloodless Preaching is Killing Christians

The preaching formula is “thus says the Lord,” not “I’m telling you!”
by Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke

People filled with the Holy Spirit should be marked with the true features of witnesses. They neither dither nor dogmatize. They are sure of their aim but are not arrogant. They have the cool assurance of knowing that two plus two equals four with no need to prove it - no polemics. They are passionate but not pushy (with few exceptions). They let the truth speak for itself, not knocking people into submission. They do not wear boxing gloves. The preaching formula is always “thus says the Lord,” not “I’m telling you!” Witnesses just pass on what they had heard and saw. It is not their business to defend it or even to invite questions. It is the Lord’s responsibility to confirm the righteousness of His own Word.
Last night after Church I was in a rich conversation with Jon Byrd. We have both been disturbed by a bloodless preaching style. How much of what you hear in the public pulpit is either feel better about yourself, God wants you rich and well dressed, God needs a king on earth and you just might be him or don't worry your silly little head off about anything regarding the actions of evil on the earth, Antichrists, beasts, wrath, or judgments. Have an optimistic view of the end. It will make you feel soooo much better.

What we DON'T hear is the blood preached any more. The price paid. The propitiation for sin. The pain Jesus endured because of our rebellion.

I too would love to enjoy feel good sermonizing. Then there is Paul the Apostle in 1 Corinthians Chapter 1:18-3:3a. How much preaching is Pauline today?
Christ Crucified Is God’s Power and Wisdom, a word from the Apostle Paul to Corinth
1 Corinthians:1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”

20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

1 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.

2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3 I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. 4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, 5 so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.

God’s Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit
6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 However, as it is written:

“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—

10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.

The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. 14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. 15 The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, 16 for,

“Who has known the mind of the Lord
so as to instruct him?”

But we have the mind of Christ.

1 Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ. 2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3 You are still worldly.

I no longer can listen to much Christian Television or Radio. It grieves me. So much of what I hear is just milk...pap....empty. Jon told me he was listening to a CD by a famous preacher, one both of us have loved for a long time. It got such that his preaching got so far from the truth that Paul tries to explain above that Jon threw the CD out the window.

I understand that. I have yelled at the radio driving in my car because of preaching that is so far from reality to be not only useless, but harmful.

IF we want to see signs and wonders on the earth, we first must preach the cross and Christ Crucified. Bloodless Christianity is also powerless.

I heard the Lord Say:
My people have fixed their eyes on things below and not on things above. They no longer see ME high and lifted up. They are focused on who THEY are and not who I AM. They no longer glory in the cross..they glory in the world. Wherever their hearts are, that is the kingdom of whom they are a citizen.
Paul agrees:
But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. Galatians 6:14

New season and realm is coming upon the Remnant by Chris Mckay

For some of you, the realm of darkness has been so intense with its warfare since the start of 2011.. Heaven is allowing for this darkness to keep rearing its head at you so your heart that is born from the Secret Place can begin to exercise,grow and rise up in its Rule and Reign that comes only through the image that the Heavenly Father has created you to be as his Beloved when you abide inside Jesus Christ..

Because we are in a new season with the Heavenly Fathers heart.. It is for the good if we embrace what can be formed out of the warfare that is coming against us through all the darkness.. The darkness is going to be nonstop for a reason, especially after April.. The darkness will get so intense all you can do is get inside the Secret Place in Jesus heart and stay there.. The darkness sees the threat that is starting to emerge from the Secret Place in its Rule and Reign through the Remnant who will allow for the Heavenly Fathers heart to dawn and rise through them as the Beloved in these end-times.. Those who are truly marked and sealed as the Beloved inside the womb of the Secret Place, will be the Precious Jewels to see the Heavenly Father rise on their behalf against the darkness as he covers them with his Sword of the Spirit and abiding Presence..

The Heavenly Father will also use the darkness at times to help push us into something new he is wanting to take us into with his heart.. A lot of the warfare can come through the transition process as we continue to hang onto the realms of the old where the Heavenly Father is wanting to lovingly push us out of it, so we can enter into the new.. So at times to help push us into the new, God allows for the darkness where it has been trying to hide in the old to begin manifesting and unveiling itself as the waters of his spirit begins to flush it out of being suppressed to where it was trying to hide under the cover of darkness.. That which you thought of being so familiar in the old starts to become your worst nightmare, as the darkness you were so familiar with through false self in the soul where you would try to hide with its masks begins to expose itself as the very thing that has been trying to abort who you really are as the Beloved that is born from the Secret Place in the Heavenly Fathers heart..

P.S The only realm that can show up with its Rule and Reign in the midst of darkness is the true image that is born from the Secret Place with the Heavenly Fathers heart. The power of God with his Kingdom authority doesn't show up at times because we have had a wrong perspective and belief of who we think Jesus is that we form in the mind through false self in a religious spirit in the soul out of its familiarity that we can control on our terms.. The Heavenly Father cant back up a distorted and defiled impure image formed from religion in the mind and soul outside of the Secret Place that is not of his spiritual Kingdom DNA.. The Heavenly Father only backs up the word with his sword of the spirit that is formed from his presence inside the Secret Place in oneness to the true image as the Beloved as you abide inside Jesus Christ.. Trying to take on a realm of darkness with the authority of Jesus while still sleeping with the enemy in its realm of darkness through false self in a religious spirit that is formed outside the Secret Place from the carnal culture and image of the world just wont cut it in these end-times, and the darkness will begin to overtake you through your lack of truly abiding inside Jesus Christ.. The darkness recognizes true authority from the Kingdom of Heaven when the enemy sees you abiding inside Jesus heart in the Secret Place in oneness to the Heavenly Fathers presence.. It is then that the power of God with his Authority which is connected to the Heavenly Fathers heart can show up mightily as a confronting standard to put the darkness under your feet as a footstool > as to back up the image of who Jesus Christ is with his Rule and Reign as you abide inside the Secret Place through intimacy with his Holy Spirit in your true image as the Beloved.

Remembering Calvary - a vision by David Smith

Saturday, April 23, 2011 at 8:09am

One of the most heart-rending visions that the Lord has ever showed me was a vision of Calvary. In the vision, I knew that it was just moments from the time that our Lord cried out, "It is finished!". Oh, how my tears flowed - even now, the tears gather in my eyes.

I believe the Lord allowed me to glimpse the scene as it actually happened. Below is the vision.

The first thing I saw was the sky. The sun was setting, the darkness was gathering, and the sky was turning red with the setting of the sun. In the distance was Calvary - I am so thankful that the Lord did not show me a close up view of the crucifiction of Jesus. I saw the crosses where they were crucified, Jesus & the others with him. Below the crosses, starting to disappear into the darkness, were the people that were watching.

And then, the Lord showed me more.

Gathered all around, and above, the hill where Jesus was - there was the demonic horde. I don't know if ever devil spirit in existence was there, but there were thousands - the darkness of their presence hung like an oppressive cloud all around the area where Jesus was moments away from death. There was dark celebration, gloating, and glee. The devil's army had defeated the Son of God - they were glorying in the sight of the messiah hanging on a tree. The celebration was sickening.

But the demonic horde was worried. They kept glancing upward. They kept looking around. There was fear in the demonic darkess & air.

And then, the Lord showed me more.

Up in the sky, above the entire terrible scene, there were heavenly angels - watching.

I don't know if every one of Heaven's angels were present - but there were thousands of them. They far out-numbered the demonic horde below - there was twice as many. But, they simply watched the scene below. I sensed the sadness, the anguish, & the anger at what they were watching. I sensed how the angels of heaven felt as they watched the Son of God crucified below.

But, there was more.

They had gathered to watch the scene below. For thousands of years they had fought the demonic horde to bring the world to this moment. They were seeing the promise fulfilled from the promise that was made. The heavenly angels were watching as HISTORY unfolded before their eyes. They were seeing the Word of God happen just as their God had said. But, it was still hard to watch - knowing the Son of God would soon be dead.

It was even harder for the angels to stand at a distance and see Jesus beaten, tormented, humiliated, and mocked.

But, for now, they simply waited - and watched.

And below, the demonic horde continued to celebrate - and worry.

Why did not the angels of heaven rescue their Saviour? Why did they not come to save the Son of God from impending death? The demonic army tried to completely surround the area - to keep the angels of heaven from getting to the Son of God - but the fallen angels of the devil could not understand WHY there was no rescue... WHY they simply WATCHED!

But, then, the demonic horde forgot about their fear. They looked back at the pathetic little man hanging on the cross and laughed & cheered. They had won! The Son of God had died! They had killed him - and the demonic horde cheered!

And the angels above watched - as did their God.

And the vision faded.

We know the rest of the story - now, you know what really happened at Calvary.

A prophetic vision from the Cross - The Price Paid in Eternity

Consider the view from the Cross. In Jesus eyes. In the pain. In the torment.

There was a time as He suffered when the glory set before Him by which He could endure the pain was obscured. There was a time when He became all the sin for you, for me, for all. The torment of death by sin was that moment.....when He really needed the Father His eyes could no longer see Him. Doing what He sees the Father do no longer was His response. He was alone, dying, in pain, in more agony from ALL the guilt and curse of sin that He cried out..."MY GOD....MY GOD....Why have you forsaken me"? How long did that go on? How much pain was there?

Some accuse Catholics of crucifying Jesus over and over and over. Yet, in eternity, He is. Jesus died for your sins. He did pay the price, is paying the price as your intercessor and upon your death will demonstrate that the price is paid by presenting you as perfect not in your flesh but in your sanctified state by His blood.

The despair that Jesus felt for that moment of abandonment was sheer terror; a prospect that He might NEVER again have unity with the Father. This is a mystery..yet a truth.

I submit it was an eternity. Is still an eternity. When we sin today, that is at once transferred to that eternal payment moment in eternity, that eternal moment of abandonment, all sin laid on Him. Since in the timelessness of eternity Jesus is NOW crucified and sitting on the throne as Man King God right now and the slain lamb is there. The picture of that truth is in Revelation 5. A man on the throne yet at the same time a slain lamb. JESUS in the Moment

Yet Jesus proclaims...It IS our time.

So for us it IS finished - Sin and Death are conquered and satan is defeated.

In time and eternally.


Stephen Hanson:: "I LIFT THE SAFETY NET" April 20 evening, 2011

I don't personally KNOW Steven Hansen. I know God. This sounds like HIM. So you must judge this for yourself if it be of God or Not. I submit it for your review:

2 Peter:19 We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a man who was riding upon a horse and he then took what looked like a spear and placed it in the ground and he lifted up a huge net and took the net off of from where it had been.)

The Lord then said to me:

"I am taking off the safety net that has been held in place over the nation of the United States. For no longer will there be a wall of protection for you. No longer will I continually tell you what you must do. For you have gone your own way. You have ignored the warnings of those prophets that I have sent to you. The safety net was held in place by many generations, but now it is being released.

For the sounds of distant drums are being heard. The drums are rolling out their message upon the earth. For all around the globe the sounds of bloodshed and violence are heard and seen upon your TV screens. But I can gather them all up in the palms of my hands. I hold the world in a balance. I see the end as I see the beginning. And just as Israel was taken to Babylon, so at a certain point and time your nation will be besieged by an outside force.

But put your hope in me my people. Continue to lift this nation up to me. The handwriting is written upon the wall, and just as Belshazzar saw this so now it is plain for all to see.

For I would long to not come with a whip. I would rather not turn your waters to blood, but you are a rebellious people. I had to treat Israel my own just the same way. They sacrificed on every hill. They laughed at my prophets. They endured through many long, long winters; and yet they are my own. "

The Prophet’s Appetite By pastor bryan meadows

The purpose of the Prophet is to stand as the mouth of God in the Earth. The office of the prophet must never be vacant in the Earth, for it is this office that syncs the Body with what our King is saying, and where the word of a king is there is power (Eccl. 8:4). The prophet then becomes a power source for the Body. Every ministry gift and every gift of the spirit is a power source. They are particular engines that drive certain parts of the Body, and when all of these gifts are in sync, the Body progresses and advances in the same direction. This is what Paul was dealing with in the first book to the church at Corinth. Because of their immaturity, there were divisions. So even though there was the abundance of gifts, since there were divisions, the Body still was not advancing properly. This is very important, even in the growth and maturity of a local church or a city house. When all of the gifts are aligned in order (the purpose of apostolic ministry) then the Body can advance in a region.

The prophet is a very significant gift that must not be muzzled in the House of God. Deut. 25:4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn. This is a very important principle. The ox is a workman. The oxen would be yoked together, and as they would begin to tread upon the threshing floor, they would get hungry, so they were free to eat from the ground they were treading upon. Some people would get greedy and muzzle the ox so that the ox could not enjoy any of the corn, and their harvest would be more plentiful. This would make the ox tired by reason of his hunger, which would result in a slower, weaker ox that would have to work twice as hard and twice the time to do the job. Prophets must be honored. prophets must not be muzzled in the House of God. Prophets, you must speak.

There are certain atmospheres that cultivate prophets. The atmosphere of faith activates gifts and releases a surge of power to prophesy. Romans 12:6 says that we prophesy according to the proportion of our faith. So as we create an atmosphere of corporate faith, prophets begin to grow in the house. Where there are no prophets the heavens are usually stale and brass. Now as prophets begin to arise in the Earth, there must be fields for them to feed from. Every ministry gifts has a particular diet. These diets are determine by the journey before them. Diets determine Destiny. So prophets must feed on a certain caliber of food.

1Kings 17:3 Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.

1Kings 17:4 And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.

1Kings 17:5 So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.

1Kings 17:6 And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.

1Kings 17:7 And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.

Elijah commanded that the Heavens would shut up and yield no rain. He had prophetic power to make the Heavens barren, to close the womb of the Heavens for 3 years. Now when he commanded the Heavens to yield no rain, the Lord told him to go east. East is the direction of prophets. East is the place of revelation. The sun rises in the East. This represents the dawning of a new day, an allotment of light and revelation. So Elijah goes to the east. As prophetic people, we must dwell in the East. This is where Adam lived. The scripture says that God planted a Garden eastward in Eden, and it is there that he placed the man (Gen 2:7-8). Now when Elijah goes to the east, he hides by the brook and God commands the raven to feed him. Now ravens are birds. They are fowls of the air, they are symbols of high level revelation. The ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning and the evening. The morning are new days, the beginning of new eras and the nights are times of rest and ending. This is transition. Prophets must be fed during times of transition. When the old testament was transitioning into the new, John was eating locust and wild honey. Prophets must eat, and there diet must be prepared to give them strength. Daniel couldn’t eat what everyone else was eating, he had a specific diet. Now 1 Kings 17:6 says that he drank from the brook. A brook is a small fresh water stream of water with a distinct current. There are currents in the Earth (called trends) and currents in the Heavens (tunnels of revelation that when accessed are used to move us quickly into areas of knowledge and action.. but thats a different subject). Now Elijah literally, with a combination of no rain and a dry climate, drinks this brook dry. This is the appetite of the prophet.

Prophets have a king’s appetite for revelation. The only way that prophets can be powerful is if there is a consistent stream of revelation released in the House. We must as apostles make sure that we are nurturing the prophetic dimension in our people. This is not just for prophets. Remember that every ministry has a particular diet. And as you release that meat it nurtures that particular grace in the life of your congregation. Prophets many times find themselves in Houses that can not adequately feed them because of a traditional paradigm on anointings and giftings. This must change. So how do you feed prophets?

  1. Activate the engine of intercessory prayer. This must not be an option for the prophets in your house. Prophets should lead intercession and mentor the watchmen of the House. They should create a shield of prayer that is void of gossip and witchcraft. Prophets should not seek to steer a church by what is revealed during prayer. They are the executive cabinet of the House, and should be used to brief the set man on what is happening in the region. At our church in Atlanta, we want to have weekly prophetic briefings. We will do this by phone or by email.
  2. Prophets should operate in companies. 1 Cor. 14:31 says let the prophets prophesy one by one. This creates an atmosphere of sobriety and accountability. When prophets operate in companies, they can feed off each other. This establishes a system of cross-pollination and their well of prophetic power will never run dry. Deep will call to deep.
  3. Raising strong minstrels must be a priority of our House. The deeper we go into the intimate quarters of our God, the stronger our prophets become. 2 Kings 3:15 says now bring me a minstrel.. When the minstrel plays it activates the hand of the Lord. And the hand of the Lord always goes after prophets. The praise and worship dimension of our houses must be deep wells of intimacy. We must utilize prophets during praise and worship. There must be prophetic dancers. This feeds prophets.. it energizes them. When the Song of the Lord is released constantly in the House it becomes a brook for them to drink from.
  4. The meat that is set at the table must be quality. When dealing with steak, steak can be either dry aged or wet aged. Usually apostles and prophets prefer their meat wet aged because it retains some of the blood. Lions and eagles love blood. But the word that is released on a weekly basis must not be milk. It must be meat. It must be able to fill the bellies of our people and remain in their system for days at a time. When the meal is heavy it puts our people to sleep. This is the sleep of Adam, of Abraham, and of Jacob. During times of prophetic hibernation is when God begins to release dreams. Dreams become the gateway for new ideas and inventions to be grabbed.
  5. The last thing we will deal with here is prophetic tracks. Now remember that this is just a small portion of the prophet’s diet. Each individual will have specialize dietary requirements depending on their journey and their appetite. A prophetic track is likened to a school of the prophets. These are tracks to determine the maturation process in a local house. It is curriculum based and should be establish by levels. Meaning that beginning prophets should be introduced to basic prophetic ministry, and elder prophets need deeper study. These curriculums should continue to evolve as the knowledge of the prophetic grows in the House.

These are just some of the ways that you can feed the prophets in your House. I believe that this is a must and is not negotiable if we want to see Houses arise as forces in our cities. The prophetic ministry is not the only ministry that should be emphasized in a House, this is just the subject that we are dealing with at this particular time.

Jesus Can Redeem Your Denials ---- J. Lee Grady

Peter’s three denials could have marked the end of his ministry. But the power of Christ’s forgiveness led to three great victories.

The Easter story is full of gloom. Agonizing prayers in the Garden of Gethsemane. Hostile mobs demanding execution. Betrayal and beatings. A crown of thorns and a bloody cross.

But one of the saddest parts of the story, to me, is what happened to Peter the night Jesus was arrested. Peter was tired, stressed to the breaking point and fearful of the crowd. When the high priest’s servant girl accused him of being a disciple of Jesus, he denied it. When she repeated her accusation to some bystanders, he denied it again. When others questioned him, the Bible says Peter “began to curse and swear, ‘I do not know this man you are talking about!’” (Mark 14:71, NASB)

This Easter, please remember that after Peter wept in the darkness of his shame, the sun came up and Jesus lovingly restored his faith. He will do the same for you.”

Then the rooster crowed, and Peter remembered Jesus’ words: “Before a rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times” (v. 72).

This could have been the end for Peter. He wept bitterly and disappeared. He never says anything else in Matthew and Mark’s gospels. Luke records the fact that Peter went to Jesus’ tomb and found it empty. John’s is the only gospel that explains how Peter found full restoration for his failure.

Sulking, lonely and dejected, Peter went back to what he knew—his fishing job. He had fished all night and caught nothing. But then Jesus appeared on the shore and invited His friends to cast their nets on the right side of the boat. They hauled in a full net of fish! This was a divine sign that their Master still had plans to use them.

Peter must have been curious when He saw the full breakfast Jesus had prepared for the disciples on the beach. How could this be? Jesus wasn’t frowning or scowling. Nor was he waiting to deliver a stern lecture. He didn’t scold Peter or even remind him of his sin. This amazing Savior simply invited Peter to sit with him and eat.

Then Jesus talked his beloved Peter through the process of healing. He said to Peter three times: “Do you love me?” Surely Peter realized that Jesus was repeating himself three times in order to intentionally apply His forgiveness to Peter’s three denials. Jesus’ three commands to Peter (“Tend My lambs,” “Shepherd My sheep” and “Tend My sheep”) provided all the reassurance he needed.

Jesus had not disqualified him. He was not a failure. He was back in the game.

What is even more amazing is how the shaky, impetuous, insecure Peter was transformed after he was baptized in the Holy Spirit a few weeks later. This weak man who crumbled under pressure when His Master was arrested then preached not one, not two, but three important sermons in the opening chapters of the book of Acts.

First, Peter preached on the day of Pentecost and boldly declared to a crowd that Jesus is the Messiah—and 3,000 people were converted. Second, after God healed the lame man in Solomon’s portico, Peter preached a sermon of repentance and 5,000 people were saved. Third, after Peter and John were arrested and brought before the high priest, Peter bravely defended his faith in Christ and told the elders: “There is salvation in no one else” (Acts 4:12).

Three denials. Three affirmations of Christ’s love. Three courageous sermons defending Jesus in the face of opposition. I hope you can do the math.

There is a bit of Peter in all of us. We are weak in the face of temptation. We feel like failures. Some people even keep a spiritual scorecard reminding them that they struck out.

This Easter, please remember that after Peter wept in the darkness of his shame, the sun came up and Jesus appeared on the shore with a meal prepared. Just as He invited Peter to breakfast, and then lovingly restored his faith, He can do the same for you.

At Passover...remember

Passover: 'Remember This Day!'

donfinto_croppedWe are grateful for all the traditional Seders that are being held as believers from the nations are being restored to the biblical Jewish roots of our faith. I encourage you to participate in them as the Lord leads. Gather your family and friends together for a meal and "remember this day"—the Passover and the "last supper." Passover began at sundown yesterday, April 18.

You may choose to use a Haggadah (traditional Jewish way of remembering the evening). Or you may choose simply to read the Passover story from Exodus 12 and the account of the Passover evening meal with Yeshua and His disciples on the night of His betrayal (see Matt. 26:17-30) and to celebrate your own deliverance from slavery through the blood of Yeshua.

Scripture speaks of "bitter herbs and bread made without yeast" (Ex. 12:8) as a part of the meal. The important thing is to remember. And let the Holy Spirit guide your evening.

At some point during the evening, go outside and look for the full moon. Passover comes always on the 14th of the biblical month of Nisan (also called Abib), always a full moon. Israel needed no lighted torches on the night of their deliverance—nor did the Roman soldiers on the night of Jesus' betrayal.

Remember the night of Israel's deliverance and remember the night of Jesus' betrayal when He sat with His close friends for the last time.

"This is my body which is for you," He said as He took the bread (1 Cor. 11:24).

"This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me," He said as He took the wine (v. 25).

"I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in the Father's kingdom," He told His disciples (Matt. 26:29).

At some point in the evening you may also want to read aloud the following selection from one of our Speaking Life e-mails several years ago:

On this day, 3,500 years ago, lambs were slaughtered throughout Goshen in Egypt,

Hyssop brushes stroked Jewish doorposts with lamb's blood.

The children of Israel met quietly,

Sequestered behind their bloodstained doors,

Waiting to be delivered from 400 years of slavery.

On this night, 3,500 years ago, the Lord went through the land looking for blood on doorposts.

There was a great deliverance, a pass-over.

Firstborn sons were slain in houses where there was no blood.

Wailing and mourning was heard when judgment came in Egypt.

On this night, 3,500 years ago, freedom was proclaimed in Israel.

Firstborn sons of believing Israel were spared through the blood of the lamb.

The lamb's blood painted on doorposts brought freedom.

The wealth of Egypt became the wealth of Israel.

Shouts of joy were heard as Moses led Israel out of Egypt.

On this night, 3,500 years ago, the exodus from Egypt came suddenly.

For 3,500 years faithful servants of God have remembered this night.

On this day, 2,000 years ago, another Lamb was slain,

Human hearts were stroked with Lamb's blood and freed from centuries of slavery.

On this day, 2,000 years ago, the Lord began to look for Lamb's blood on the doorposts of hearts.

There was a great deliverance—a passing over.

On this day, 2,000 years ago, wealth was restored to the sons of Adam,

Another Moses led another Israel out of another Egypt.

On this day, 2,000 years ago, Lamb's blood on the doorposts of hearts brought freedom.

Today, Lamb's blood is still found on human hearts.

Deliverance is found behind a blood-stained door.

If the doorpost of your heart is stained with Lamb's blood, have a glorious Passover.

If not, grab quickly the hyssop and look for the Lamb's blood.

The exodus will come suddenly!

The Lamb who was slain has risen and will return as King of kings and Lord of lords!

LITURGY - A Lust of the Flesh....makes you feel good....for a short time

Recently I was part of a celebration where liturgical components were implemented. I grew up in Liturgy. Know and love it well. Could live there.

Even enjoy hearing liturgical things even on Catholic Radio, even though I'm not Catholic.

It makes me feel good. I get a warm christian memory feeling when I hear, sing, recite and participate in liturgy.

I have never been against liturgy as a practice, yet I have known in my spirit that there is a trap. I just didn't have words to express what that trap is.

Liturgy makes ME feel good. It's predictable. It's comforting. It's accessible. It's something I do. I can follow along in the Hymnal. Check Check Check. When I get done with a liturgical service I can look back and see what I did...I DID.

Good thing for a person with a task orientation - a checklist of tangible results.

It has taken me to a place where I am back in charge.

This is NOT an indictment of liturgy. Anyone who grew up Catholic or Lutheran or any other liturgical church will understand what I am saying....I love it. BUT for the wrong reason.

After this very satisfying liturgical experience I heard the Lord say,
"I love your heart that comes into Liturgy with passion, but I offer this to you as a brief moment of pleasure. I rather that you would worship me in Truth, in the Spirit, without reserve, without a pattern you prescribe to reach ME. I am right here, as close as the air around you, in you, beside you. I am not far from you .....ever. I will never leave or forsake. IF you need to satisfy your flesh by feeling good thru liturgy for a moment I honor your worship. IF this all become familiar and routine you are choosing a fleshly control system over what must be a Spirit directed engagement with MY GLORY that is True Worship."
It was a bit of a comeuppance. I come from a long line of liturgical people. Yet, I see it practiced in Pentecostal Churches. We have a few praise songs, CHECK, we have a few tongues and interpretation, CHECK, we have a prophecy or two, someone reads, maybe a teaching. And we are free

(OH, I forgot the Offering).

Liturgy. Flesh satisfying.

I believe I have heard from the Lord on this. It's the spirit behind the liturgy, Catholic, Lutheran or Pentecostal. If the heart is right, it pleases God. If it's not...It's all flesh.

For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. Romans 7:18

Sunday, April 17, 2011


The great deception is loosed in the land already, to deceive even the very elect. Be very careful. Many are claiming revelations, many are following an evil spirit, many are wolves in sheep's clothing. This prophecy is worth reading and considering.

The following is an excerpt from a prophecy given at the Elim Bible Institute Summer Camp Meeting in 1965 by the late Stanley Frodsham. Brother Frodsham was a recognized prophet and teacher in the Body of Christ whose life and ministry spanned the Pentecostal Revival, the great Healing Revival and the early days of the Charismatic Movement. He also authored the well-known book, "Smith Wigglesworth: Apostle of Faith".

Great Judgments
"With great judgments will I plead with the population of this country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come upon them. The darkness shall be so great and the anguish so sore that men shall cry out for death and shall not find it. There shall be a lingering death, famine and great catastrophes.

My wrath shall be manifested against all ungodliness. It shall come with great intensity. You have known my love but have not experienced My wrath or My severity. My judgments are literal and not a thing to be passed over lightly. Realize the severity of My judgments and My intense anger against the sin in My Household. My judgments shall begin in My House, for I will cleanse My House that it be not a partaker of My wrath against the iniquities of the cities. Before I visit the nations in judgment I will begin at My House. When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle and such will be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath, which will be coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness.

I am going to prepare you for the coming days by a hard path that will cause many to cry out continually unto Me. For when the going is easy men do not seek Me, but rejoice in a temporary blessing. And when that blessing is removed they so often turn this way and that way but do not come to Me. I am showing you these things in order that you may seek Me continually and with great diligence. As you seek Me I will open up truth to you that you have not seen before, and this very truth will be such that will enable you to stand in these last days. As you are persecuted, reviled and rejected by your brethren then you will turn unto Me with all your heart and seek Me for that spiritual life that you need. So that when the tribulation comes you will have that which will enable you to stand. For many will be tossed to and fro, and many hearts shall fail them because of trouble on every hand. These days shall be very terrible the likes of which have never been seen before.

Coming Glory and Deceiving Spirits
When I visit My people in mighty revival power, it is to prepare them for the darkness ahead. With the Glory shall come great darkness, for the Glory is to prepare My people for the darkness. I will enable My people to go through the darkness because of the visitation of My Spirit. Take heed to yourselves lest you be puffed up and think that you have arrived. Many shall be puffed up as in the olden days, for then, many received My message but they did not continue in it. Did I anoint Jehu? Yet the things that I desired were not accomplished in his life. Listen to the messengers, but do not hold persons in admiration or adulation. For many whom I shall anoint mightily with signs and miracles shall become lifted up and shall fall by the wayside. I do not this willingly for I have made provision that they might stand. I call many into this ministry and equip them, but remember that many shall fall. They shall be like bright lights and the people shall delight in them. But they shall be taken over by deceiving spirits and shall lead many of My people astray. Hearken diligently concerning these things, for in the last days shall come seducing spirits. They shall turn many of My anointed ones away, many shall fall through diverse lusts and because of sin abounding'.

But if you will seek Me diligently I will put My Spirit within you so that when one shall turn to the right hand or to the left hand you shall not turn with them, but instead you will keep your eyes fixed wholly on your Lord. The coming days are going to be most dangerous, difficult and dark for there shall be a mighty outpouring of My Spirit in judgment upon many cities and many shall be destroyed. My people must be diligently warned concerning the days ahead. Many shall turn after seducing spirits and already many are seducing My people. It is those who Do Righteousness that are righteous. Many cover their sins by great theological words. But I warn you of seducing spirits who instruct my people in an evil way. Many of these I will anoint that they in turn may purify and sift My people, for I will have a holy people. When I come I shall not find faith upon the earth but in a few, for when the time of testing comes many will depart from their Lord.

Many shall come with seducing spirits and hold out lustful enticements. You will find that after I have visited My people again the way will become more and more narrow, and fewer shall walk therein. Be not deceived, the ways of righteousness are My ways. For though Satan come as an angel of light hearken not to him; for those who perform miracles and speak not righteousness are not of Me. I warn you with great intensity that I am going to judge My House and have a church without spot or wrinkle when I come. I desire to open your eyes and give you spiritual understanding, that you may not be deceived but may walk with uprightness of heart before Me, loving righteousness and hating every evil way. Look unto Me and I will make you to perceive with the eyes of the Spirit the things that lurk in darkness, that are not visible to the human eye. Let Me lead you in this way, that you may perceive the powers of darkness and battle against them. It is not a battle against flesh and blood, for if you battle in that way you accomplish nothing. But if you let Me take over and battle against the powers of darkness then they are defeated, and then liberation is brought to My people.

The Ways of Deceivers
I warn you to search the Scriptures diligently concerning these last days. For the things that are written shall indeed be made manifest. There shall come deceivers among My people in increasing numbers, who shall speak forth the truth and shall gain the favor of the people. For the people shall examine the Scriptures and say, What these men say is true . Then when they have gained the hearts of the people, then and then only shall they bring out their wrong doctrines. Therefore I say that you should not give your hearts to men, nor hold people or persons in admiration or adulation. For by these very persons Satan shall gain entry into My people. Watch for seducers! Do you think a seducer will brandish a heresy and flaunt it before the people? He will speak words of righteousness and truth and will appear as a minister of light, declaring the Word. The peoples hearts shall be won. Then when the hearts are won, they will bring out their doctrines and the people shall be deceived. The people shall say Did he not speak thus and thus And did we not examine it from the Word Therefore he is a minister of righteousness. This that he has now spoken we do not see in the Word but it must be right, for the other things he spoke were true

Be not deceived. For the deceiver will first work to gain the hearts of many, and then shall bring forth his insidious doctrines. You can not discern those who are of Me and those who are not of Me when they start to preach. But seek Me constantly, and when these doctrines are brought out you shall have a witness in your heart that these are not of Me. Fear not, for I have warned you. It is possible that the very elect may be deceived. But it is not possible if you walk in holiness and uprightness before the Lord, for then your eyes shall be open and the Lord will protect you. If you will constantly look unto the Lord you will know when the doctrine changes, and will not be brought into it. If your heart is right I will keep you, if you will look constantly to Me, I will uphold you.

The minister of righteousness shall be on this wise --- his life shall agree with the word, and his lips shall give forth that which is wholly true, there will be no mixture. When the mixture appears then you will know he is not a minister of righteousness. The deceivers speak first the truth and then error, to cover their own sins which they love. Therefore I exhort and command you to study the Scriptures relative to seducing spirits, for this is one of the great dangers of these last days.

I desire you to be firmly established in My word and not in the personalities of men, that you will not be moved as so many shall be moved. I would keep you in the paths of righteousness. Take heed to yourselves and follow not the seducing spirits that are already manifesting themselves. Diligently inquire of Me when you hear something that you have not seen in the word, and do not hold peoples persons in admiration, for it is by this very method that Satan will hold many of My people.

The Way of Triumph
I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly, that you may triumph where I triumphed. On the cross I triumphed over all the powers of Satan and I have called you to walk in the same path. It is when your life is on the cross that you shall know the victory that I have experienced. As you are on the cross, seated in Me, then you shall know the power of the resurrection. When I come in My Glory the principalities and powers in the heavenly places shall be utterly broken.

Fear not, for I have given you the power whereby you may tread down the powers of darkness, and come forth victorious through every trial. As you are on the cross then you are victorious. It was on the cross that I triumphed over all the powers of the enemy. My life shall flow through as you enter into this precious truth. Look unto Me and appropriate My life. As your eyes and desires are toward Me and you know what it is to be crucified with Me, then you shall live and your anointing shall increase. It was not in My life as I walked upon the earth but rather it was in My life as I hung upon the cross that I openly spoiled principalities and powers.

I am showing you truth that shall cause you to overcome, to have power over the wicked one, this is the truth that will liberate you and those around you. You shall know also the fellowship of My sufferings. There is no other way whereby you may partake of this heavenly glory and to reign with Me. My word says that If we suffer with Him we shall reign with Him. I desire to make this truth real within you. As you keep them before you, you will in turn liberate many who are in bondage. You will have revelation of those who are in darkness and will have the keys to liberate the captives. Many seek to liberate but do not have the keys. Upon the cross continually you will know the power of My resurrection.

If you will indeed judge yourself you shall not be judged. As you seek My face and desire to be cleansed by Me in all truth and sincerity of heart, I will judge you in the secret place, and the things that are in the secret place of your heart shall not be made manifest to others. I will do it in the secret place and no man will know it. The shame that will be seen on many faces shall not be seen on your face. Therefore in mercy and love I am instructing you in order that you may partake of My Glory. As you are willing to walk with Me and rejoice in your sufferings, you shall in turn partake of My Glory. Look unto Me for you have need of power to overcome the wicked one and the bondage in others lives.

I said that if a man will judge himself he shall not be judged. It is not My good pleasure that the shame of My people be seen by all.How can I judge the world if I judge not first My own house? Hearken unto these things that I am telling you, for if you will not hearken unto Me thy shame shall be evident to all.

God Part and Our Part
I would have you consider My life on earth --- the anointing upon Me was great and yet the temptations were great on every side; they came in one form and then in another, offering Me first the glory of the kingdoms of the earth and then in the form of reviling and persecution. There will be great glory given to My people but also the temptations will be intensified on every side. Think not that with the glory there shall be no temptations or persecutions. The glory to My church shall be great and so also the temptations from the enemy to turn My people from My paths. I warn you again that when the glory shall be manifested the temptations shall be great until very few that started shall finish the course.

First of all they shall be offered great worldly possessions and then will come great reviling and unbelief.

Consider your Lord, that as He walked so it shall be for you. There shall be need of great intensity of purpose. At times it will seem that everyone is rising up against you, trying to turn you from the course that I have set for you. It is written of Me that I set my face as flint to go in the direction that My Father had prescribed for Me. If you will finish the course the Lord has laid down for you, you too will have to set your face as a flint. With great determination you must walk in the course laid down for you.

Many of your loved ones and those who follow with you will seek to persuade you and try to turn you from the course. With many words that seem right in the natural they will speak to you. Did not Christ rebuke Peter who would turn Him from the course God had prescribed?

Understand these two things and meditate upon them solemnly --- the persecution and the darkness shall be as great as the glory in order to try to turn the elect and the anointed ones from the path the Lord has laid down for them. Many shall start but few shall be able to finish because of the greatness of grace that shall be needed to be able to endure unto the end. The temptation and the persecution of your Lord was continuous. He was tempted by Satan in many forms throughout His entire life and even to the cross where the ungodly cried out if thou be the Christ come down from the cross. Think not that there will be a time of no persecution, for it shall be from the time of your anointing until the end. Difficulties and great persecution will go on to the end. The Lord must prepare you to be an overcomer in all things, that you may be able to finish the course. The persecution shall increase even as the anointing shall increase.

In paths of judgment and righteousness shall the Lord God lead His people and bring them into that place which He has chosen for them. The Lord has chosen a place for His people, a place of righteousness and holiness where He shall encamp around them. All who will be led of the Lord will be brought into this holy place. For the Lord delights to dwell in His people and to manifest Himself through His people. The holiness of the Lord will be manifested through His people. Let the Lord lead you and He will lead you in the difficult places. He led His people of old through a place where no man dwelt, where no man passed through, in a place of great danger and in the shadow of death. The Lord will indeed lead His people again through such places, and at the same time will bring them out into a place of great glory. Understand that the way toward the glory is fraught with great danger and many shall fall to the right or the left, many shall camp on lesser ground. But the Lord has a place of holiness and no unclean thing shall dwell among His people.

Put your trust in Him and He will bring you into a place of holiness. He desires to bring His people into a great glory --- the likes of which has never been seen, for this is what the Lord will do for those who put their trust in Him. It is a place of darkness and great danger and it will separate His people into the place where He would have them walk. He will protect them from the voices that would turn them from His path. He will bring them through the dark places and treacherous paths and lead them out into the light of His glory. He will rejoice greatly over His beloved and cause them to be filled with joy unspeakable. He seeks to lead His people into a new place of grace and glory where He will indeed encamp among them. Put your trust in Him and He will surely bring you into this new place.

Fear not the days to come, but fear this only --- that you shall walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord. In this time I am ordering and setting up My church and it shall indeed be pure, without spot or wrinkle. I will do a work in My beloved that has not been seen since the foundation of the world. I have shown you these things that you may seek the Lord diligently with all your heart, and that you may be a preserver of His people.

Run not to this one or that one for the Lord has so ordained that salvation is in Him and in Him alone. You shall not turn to this shepherd or to that one, for there shall be a great scattering upon the earth. Therefore look unto Him for He will indeed make these things clear to you. You shall not look here or there, for His Wells shall increase your strength and your faith as He prepares you for the times that are coming.

The truth that I have revealed to you must become a part of you --- not just an experience, but a part of your very nature. Is it not written that I demand truth in the inward parts? It is the truth of the Lord expressed in your very being that shall hold you.

Many shall experience the truth but the truth must become a part of you, your very life. As men and women look upon you they will hear not only the voice but see the expression of the truth. Many shall be overcome because they are not constant in My ways and because they have not permitted the truth to become a part of them. I am showing you these things that you may be prepared, and having done all, to stand. "

A word on Earthly Treasures from Rodney Howard-Browne

I was impacted decades ago in North Dakota by the Ministry of Rodney Howard-Browne. Yesterday in a small group setting the discussion was about money. Where our security lies. The dangers of trusting in earthly riches. Then this morning I read the following. It's like the Lord is reinforcing this once again....

From Rodney's Pen:
People use money as security, but riches are temporary and unstable – wealth comes and it goes. People also see money as an indication of a person’s worth, but money has absolutely nothing to do with who you are or your worth in this world. God does not differentiate between us, based on what we have or what we know (head knowledge). God is no respecter of persons. Lets read what the Word of God declares:

1 Let all who are under the yoke as bond servants esteem their own [personal] masters worthy of honor and fullest respect, so that the name of God and the teaching [about Him] may not be brought into disrepute and blasphemed.
2 Let those who have believing masters not be disrespectful or scornful [to them] on the grounds that they are brothers [in Christ]; rather, they should serve [them all the better] because those who benefit by their kindly service are believers and beloved. Teach and urge these duties.
3 But if anyone teaches otherwise and does not assent to the sound and wholesome messages of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and the teaching which is in agreement with godliness (piety toward God),
4 He is puffed up with pride and stupefied with conceit, [although he is] woefully ignorant. He has a morbid fondness for controversy and disputes and strife about words, which result in (produce) envy and jealousy, quarrels and dissension,abuse and insults and slander, and base suspicions,
5 And protracted wrangling and wearing discussion and perpetual friction among men who are corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth, who imagine that godliness or righteousness is a source of profit [a moneymaking business, a means of livelihood]. From such withdraw.
6[And it is, indeed, a source of immense profit, for] godliness accompanied with contentment (that contentment which is a sense of inward sufficiency) is great and abundant gain.
7 For we brought nothing into the world, and obviously we cannot take anything out of the world;
8 But if we have food and clothing, with these we shall be content (satisfied).
9 But those who crave to be rich fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish (useless, godless) and hurtful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction and miserable perishing.
10 For the love of money is a root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have been led astray and have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves through with many acute [mental] pangs.
11 But as for you, O man of God, flee from all these things; aim at and pursue righteousness (right standing with God and true goodness), godliness (which is the loving fear of God and being Christlike), faith, love, steadfastness (patience), and gentleness of heart. 1 Timothy 6:1-11

People use money as security, but riches are temporary and unstable – wealth comes and it goes. People also see money as an indication of a person’s worth, but money has absolutely nothing to do with who you are or your worth in this world. God does not differentiate between us, based on what we have or what we know (head knowledge). God is no respecter of persons. There are people who are puffed up with pride and stupefied with conceit, even though they are actually woefully ignorant. They love to argue and they try to use the Gospel to profit themselves, but they are not contented. They are always striving for money and prestige and they don’t care who they trample along the way. This is not God’s plan for you.

God wants you to be content in spite of and apart from your circumstances. Godliness is indeed, a source of immense profit. Godliness accompanied with contentment - a sense of inward sufficiency - is great and abundant gain. We did not bring anything into the world and obviously we cannot take anything out of the world, but if we have food and clothing, we should be content and be satisfied with these, because those who crave to be rich fall into temptation and a snare. They are distracted from God’s true purpose for their lives. The love of money is a root of all evil. The love of money will cause you to make wrong decisions and mess up your life and other people’s lives.

If you want to be a man or woman of God, you must flee from all these things. Rather, you must pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, patience, and gentleness of heart.

As for the rich in this world, charge them not to be proud and arrogant and contemptuous of others, nor to set their hopes on uncertain riches, but on God, Who richly and ceaselessly provides us with everything for [our] enjoyment. 18[Charge them] to do good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal and generous of heart, ready to share [with others], 19 In this way laying up for themselves [the riches that endure forever as] a good foundation for the future, so that they may grasp that which is life indeed.
1 Timothy 6:17-19

God does not want you to be poor, He wants you to be blessed, but He wants you to put Him first – always. He does not tell you not to be rich and He does not say that it is wrong to be rich. He does warn the rich not to be proud, arrogant, or contemptuous of others. He cautions them not to set their hopes on uncertain riches, but on God. Why? Because God is the One Who richly and ceaselessly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. If we will pursue Him, He will pursue us. He charges the rich to do good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal and generous of heart, and ready to share with others,

So be blessed - be rich - but make sure that you always put God first, that you do not think of yourself more highly than you ought to, and that you are always generous and kind as well. If you do this, you will lay up for yourselves the riches that endure forever.

How Many Shifts bring you back to ground zero?

I have been hearing "SHIFT" so much I've been wondering how many shifts does it take to put you right back where you were.

I am.

There was a HUGE shift last August. There is another to come.

NOW I am nearly right back where I was supposed to be... Revelation 2

You have forsaken the love you had at first. 5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. 6 But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
The practices of the Nicolaitans are those which put religious structures in place, egos, hierarchy.... the Body of Christ is rejecting this evil practice. The nausea caused by religious ego is a stench that I can't take. It's a shift. The Nicolaitian practices are being shown for what they are.

One more shift and it's back to first's coming..

When Jesus is all you have, Jesus is all you need.

Fukushima nuclear reactors prophetically viewed. By Bob Kloppel

The meltdowns underway at the Fukushima nuclear reactor complex are prophetic of a very great thing that our Creator is doing in the Earth today. He is progressively "stepping back" and allowing the world to experience the consequences of its increasing rebellion against Him. Like a good father who has taught his children right from wrong and wisdom from foolishness, there come times that the children, if they will not heed their father's teachings and verbal warnings, must see first hand what the results can be. Surely our (worldwide) rebellion has reached stratospheric levels. Nevertheless, Abba Father loves us enough to provide discipline.

"Stepping back" is essentially the Holy Spirit taking a "hands off" policy, at least for the moment or a season. What the world does not understand is that it is the hand of the Holy Spirit that restrains the activity of the kingdom of darkness. When He steps back, there is room for the demonic realm to exercise greater power than would have been the case otherwise. As the Lord of all creation God also restrains nature at times. Most of all, in his love and compassion, He restrains himself, preferring love and forgiveness to judgment! The Japanese quake, while it represents God stepping back, also contains evidence of his love because, among other things, more people in the region of greatest impact survived than perished! Among the circumstances released by the quake, the stricken nuclear reactors speak volumes.

A nuclear reaction releases vast amounts of energy, all at once (nuclear weapons) or gradually "under control" (reactors). In both cases, the immense potential power must be contained until the time for its use for human purposes. A reactor vessel, the metal container for the fuel rods, isolates and keeps in heat and radioactivity while the reactor boils water into steam in order to turn generators for the production of electricity. The reactor building which covers the vessel is an insurance policy of sorts should the reactor vessel ever leak. In the case of the stricken Japanese reactors, several vessels are now leaking and the insurance has been revoked!

The churches have for centuries attempted to contain God as if He were a source of deadly radioactivity. Unlike physical containers, though, the system the Church built involves flawed beliefs, traditions, teachings, and doctrines. In this way, we have been able to create a human religious system that allows us to avoid facing certain issues (for a time) and the opportunity to have our cake and eat it too (one foot in heaven and one foot in the world)! Fear, pride, and witchcraft (control) are amongst the usual "builders" of spiritual containment systems.

God is no longer putting up with this! The ongoing events surrounding Fukushima are one way God is saying that He is breaking the silly Spirit containment structures of man. Many individual "vessels" of the Lord are being filled with the Spirit. They are "cracking open" and the things of God are being released. The heavy containment buildings that many churches have erected will NOT be able to withstand the internal pressures of the Spirit being released from these vessels. They will be left in rubble as dead structures if they try. (Thankfully, many are becoming aware of this truth and beginning to shift.) The will of the Spirit is that his vessels shine brightly in the increasing spiritual darkness!

The Spirit cannot be pinned down. He is breaking out! However, the "radiation" of the Holy Spirit into our world is not to be feared (unless we are enemies of God). In truth, the Holy Spirit as an active Divine agent upon the Earth is a very great blessing. While nuclear radiation produces a no man's land of darkness and death, the radiating of the Holy Spirit establishes exquisitely beautiful gardens wherever He is found! They take root in individuals and churches and then grow into the world beyond the garden gates. These awesome gardens contain 7 key components of heaven itself: beauty; joy; order; peace; abundance; purpose, and, above all; love.

However, it should be noted that although He loves us tremendously, He will not tolerate any person or power that attempts to block what He is doing in the earth! Warnings come. If they are not heeded, there are consequences. But if we in the Church will turn away from our evil, foolish ways, we will find that God wants to bless us and this world with everything He's got!

Spiritual winter wants to hang on, but God's calendar says "spring"! Thank you, Lord!

A word from the Lord by Jeffrey Stewart

Faith will give you the confidence to speak to the storm and tell it to be calm.

Faith will give you the confidence to speak to the enemy and tell him to flee.

Faith will give you the confidence to speak to the sick and they get well.

That is because Faith is seeing things as I see them.

The more of My Word in your heart, the more you will see things as I see them.

I see the problems solved before they even begin.

A vision of Tulip Bulbs

This morning I was shown a vision of Tulip Bulbs.

I knew right away what that meant.

We are living a Tulip Bulb Bubble. I trade you my 50,000 dollar bulb for your two 25,000 dollar bulbs and we are both happy with the fabulous trade we just made.

That's what is going on in the world right now. It's global. It won't end well. Be warned. I was.

It happened before.

Certainty is a Religious Spirit - the Leaven of the Pharisees

Father God is beyond our understanding in human terms. He constantly is warning us not to attach too much certainty to our relationship with him. He honors faith, not certitude.

BY FAITH...God says in Hebrews. BY FAITH.

Yet, I see a trend in many fellowships that is a trap of the devil. We want to know. The disciples wanted to know. They were constantly quizzing Jesus...Tell Us they said.

As a Prophet, I have the same pressures. It's constant. I give a word, as much of a word as I have received. It's from the throne...that much I know. But it's incomplete. When much of what we are experiencing in our economy was revealed to me a few years ago and I started to share prophetically about it, I was asked constantly, what should we do?

As a Prophet, my job is to tell you what is going to happen. The Apostle and Leader of the house is to steward that word to protect those who are under your vision.

The certainty with which we approach issues regarding understanding God and our relationship to him eventually will end up in a religious system that will trap us. We become slaves of policies and practices that are death. Just like the Pharisees of that day. If people don't believe as we do, then we separate ourselves from them.

That does little for the prayer of Jesus...that they would be one even as You and I are one.

There are many issues over which the Body of Christ at large has come to blows, it comes out of certainty, it comes out of a specific revelation. When it really becomes pharisaic it comes out of the practice of firing Bible Bullets. I am a good enough Bible Scholar to fight that battle pretty well. There are some who will do better. The problem is, we beat each other over the head with passages that prove our pharisaic point and we develop a stifling spirit of Religion.

Issues that are Pharisaic Religious Leaven have included:
  • Baptism..infant or adult
  • Lords Supper....True Presence or Memorialized (it's still a mystery)
  • Trinity or God is ONE and his name is Jesus
  • Charismatic Gifts...for today or passed away
  • God wants us Rich or the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head
  • Who is Israel? The Church. Did God renege on his promise to Abraham?
  • End Times....Rapture, Preterist, Amillenial, or just you die and nothing (Jewish)
  • Revelation...a book of Worship or a picture of the end
  • Heaven...Here on earth? In the Sky? New Heaven?
  • your heart or something that must be established on earth.

If you read this list and you have strong certain opinions based on solid Bible interpretation on any of just might be religious and possessed of the demon of the leaven of the Pharisees.

Here's my prophetic warning to those who are certain...your certainty is a trap. A division. A denomination. It's OK to have an opinion. God honors opinion. Where it becomes the leaven of the Pharisees is when it becomes a truth based on human opinion that was never to be understood. Certitude creates pride. It creates the kind of Phylactery wearing religious attitude Jesus faced in his time.

Right now, according to a small group's opinion, the world will end, the rapture will take place in about 6 weeks. They are ready and pity the fools who aren't. They are trapped in a religious certitude.

There are things about which we CAN be certain. The Blood of Jesus washes away all sin. God loves you and doesn't want you to go to hell.

Much else has become the playground for the Demons of Hell. They clap their hands with glee when we are certain.

The church needs deliverance, there are some demons to be cast out.

Jesus would ask...where's your faith? OR do you have to KNOW, which is another way of saying, you prefer to live by sight and not by faith.

All of these are Mysteries. They are left to Faith. The kind of Faith God honors.

The just shall LIVE BY FAITH!

The Merciless Persecution and Martyrdom to come

"And I saw thrones, and they that sat on them. And judgment was given to them, and to the souls of the ones having been beheaded because of the witness of Jesus, and because of the Word of God, and who had not worshipped the beast nor its image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand. Revelation 20:4
Last night I was struck with the large number of beheadings taking place in Islamic countries.

There are many in Latin America...brutal.

Some even in Canada.

I began to see that in spite of the talk of Guillotines in the USA as we used to see in those old scare movies, this will be carried out by Fanatical Muslims.

It will not be quick and clean. It will be the cutting of people's heads off painfully and slowly with a hand held knife. Will you or I be prepared to deal with this? Or will we cave?

It's time to recognize the Beast among us.

This is NOT a is a warning. Rick Joyner is speaking of this on this video.

I don't know all there is to understand about all this, but I know the coming martyrdom will be far less glorious than we think it might be. I think of the martyrdom of a Christian Family in North Korea recently. The whole family was run over with a road machine. A Steam roller. The children were run over first and then the parents who had to stand there and hear the sound of the heads of their children explode as it rolled over them. Then the wife. Then the husband. Rolled over alive.

Do we think the persecution and martyrdom to come will be at the hands of merciful people?

Look at the spirit behind Islam. It's a demon.

It's NOT really Prophecy if it doesn't make you squirm just a bit sometimes

I am not in the camp of feel good all the time in every way prophetic utterance. I am a pretty good student of the Prophetic as revealed in Scripture...Old and New Testament. God is God, immutable. He is revealed in the old covenant as Father God even as Jesus is revealed as Incarnate God in the New Covenant. One God...One Covenant; Old and New. Unchanging. When God speaks thru the Prophets in the Old Testament, it really should be in RED.

So, when I read the Prophets of Old, I see something that is missing in a lot of modern day prophetic utterances. The Squirm Factor.

If you read a word of Prophecy and it makes you feel all warm and tingly all over...that's good, it might be Father reassuring you. IF that's all you ever read, warm and fuzzy, you aren't tapped into the true prophetic. Some should make you squirm just a bit. Challenge your status quo.

There are a lot of Prophetic Purposes:
  • To Reveal a Message from the True God
  • To Encourage Obedience
  • To encourage Trust in God
  • To offer New Hope to the Hopeless
  • For Exhortation (Building Up)
  • For A Specific Revelation for an Occasion
  • For Conviction
  • To Encourage Friendship with God
  • To Spur Faithfulness
  • To Exhort toward greater Intimacy
  • To offer correction from the Throne Room
  • To offer Clarity in Choices being made

There is a place to find prophetic support and building up, yet sometimes a plumline must be held against the place you are building. IF all the prophetic you encounter are aren't going where you need to go.

That plumline is critical.

It might seem like correction or even conviction, but it brings things right that are out of proper alignment. It will be painful sometimes and may even make some squirm.

Don't fight the squirm. It's there for your building up.

Not every word of Prophecy will cause a hallelujah dance, unless you really understand it....

That's why you need ears to hear....

Are you hearing what the Spirit of the Living God is Saying??

Kim Clement: Watch the Mountains! There Will Be an Eruption of My Spirit as Never Before

Kim Clement

Watch the Mountains

Prophesied on March 25, 2011 from Nashville, Tennessee:

The Spirit of God says, "There is going to be a constant praise going on, and it's going to begin to erupt; and all over the world I shall restore the Tabernacle of David, where there shall be constant praise in the house of the Living God. On street corners – unusual eruptions. Watch the mountains," says the Lord, "watch the mountains as they begin to erupt. You see, the earth is busy – from deep within; it has erupted from within. Now it's going to go to the mountains," says the Lord. "There will be minimal loss of lives, but the earth erupting represents an eruption of the Spirit of the Living God upon the nations of the earth!"

The Lord says, "Watch the mountains! They will erupt and smoke shall come from them, and the people will say, 'Oh my God, it is the end!'" But God said, "It is the beginning, it is the beginning of labor pains, for something is about to be born. An eruption of My Spirit as never before, and I shall bring forth something that will reach every nation on the earth," says the Lord. "Praise will erupt in the Middle East, and praise will erupt in Africa; praise will erupt in America; praise will erupt in Asia; praise will erupt in the islands of the sea. Praise will erupt in America! Praise will erupt in America! Praise will erupt in Africa! Praise will erupt in Africa! Praise will erupt in Asia!"

"Who is There That Will Allow Me to Reign?"
(Prophetic Song)

"Will someone tell Me why is it that I've come to the earth
To hear what they say about Me?
On the left they say one thing, on the right another thing
But why don't they say, 'The Lord will do it'?

"I'm listening to the sound of someone who will allow Me in
I want to walk the streets, highways, byways, prisons and palaces
Who is there that will allow Me to reign?
On the left, they cry about the famine in the land
And on the right they say it's the left, and on the left they say it's the right

"Is there someone that will come and call Me by name so I can reign?
Is there someone that will come and call Me by name? I will reign.
Is there someone that will come and call My name? And I will reign."

Now the left, they say there's got to be a reason for the famine in the land
On the right they say it's the left, it's the left, on the left they say it's the right
But who is right and who is wrong?
God says, "I'm waiting for America to call out My Name
And if they do I'll come and I'll reign."

Call on His Name.
I call on Your Name.

"I Will Reign if They Will Pray"
(Prophetic Song)

"I have looked upon the earth, I have listened to the mother's cry
I have looked upon the earth, I've watched the mothers cry
I've watched the mothers cry
I've watched children cry as parents died before their eyes
I've watched the men; they say, 'The God of the earth has gone away.'
I've stood and watched the sky fill with tears from Heaven on high
And angels cried as they watched the earth, angels cried as they watched the earth
They cried out, 'Why are men so afraid?'

"Raise their hearts and say there is a way
And I will come if they will cry
And I will reign if they will pray
And I will reign if they will cry, if they will say
'There is a God.'

"Then I will reign if they will pray
And I will reign if they will say to Me
'Come to us, reign.'
Then I will reign in this place
And I will reign if they will pray

"I'm standing here; I'm watching them
If they will pray, I'll come again
And I will reign if they will pray
And I will reign if they will call
I'll come to them if they would call

"America, what happened to you?
There were those who would call My Name."

God says, "If you would pray I'll come to you
If you would call, I'll raise you up
I'll raise you up if you would call
I'll listen now as you call to Me."

The Enemy Has Said, "Let Us Focus on the Nations that are About to Erupt With the Glory of God"

The Spirit of God says, "I will come just for the sound of a thousand men. And I have taken women and I have raised them up to be the men. But far be it from Me to walk away, for I will gather them from all over this nation again, and I will raise them up to make a sound that will terrify and torment the powers of Hell that have come against this nation."

The Spirit of God says, "Then I will take young men, young 16-year-olds, just like I did in the Middle East. They began to rebel against control; they began to rebel against religion. So in this nation," God says, "I will take teenagers – young ones – and they will begin to rebel against the system. They will take to the streets. They will take to the highways and the byways and the back-street alleys. They will declare, 'He is alive, He is alive, He is alive!'" Everybody say, "He is alive!"

The Spirit of God says, "There's been a slothful spirit. There's been a slothfulness in My House. People say, 'This is an act of God.' Jesus rebuked the wind, rebuked the storm. Jesus never rebuked anything that the Father did. There are demonic activities that are taking place all over the world. Why do they say it is I, the Lord? Why do they say it is Me? Why would they say it is the Lord?"

But God says, "I have watched as demonic principalities have stood over Japan, over China, over Korea, over New Zealand, over the Pacific, and they've said, 'We must destroy the cities that have a potential to raise up a voice, that will destroy the princes of this hour.' They have focused on these regions. These are demonic powers." And God says, "They have said, 'If we could just get the Church to agree that this is the Lord's doing, we will succeed in belittling and destroying the morale of the people of the nations of the earth.'"

God says, "You have raised your ugly head again, and, lucifer, shall they look upon you and say, 'Is this the one who caused the nations to tremble?' Once again," says the Lord, "I will display My excellent glory. Who, who is there that will say, 'The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof'? Is there someone in this nation who will say, 'The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof'? Is there someone in this nation who will say, 'The Lord is alive and His resurrection power is upon us'?

"These strongholds," says the Lord, "(Hear Me, O people) have said, 'If we could get the agreement of the generals of this hour that this working is the work of God, we shall send confusion and division amongst the houses that have set themselves up to be houses of life and houses of spiritual righteousness.' But alas, alas to them," says the Lord. "There are prophets and apostles that have discerned the times and the seasons. It is not for Me to destroy that which I can raise up. It is not for Me to destroy that which I have planned for good. The enemy has said, 'Let us focus on the nations that are about to erupt with the glory of God.'"

"Japan, Japan, You're About to Erupt, and Christ Will be Your King"

"Japan, Japan, you're about to erupt, and Christ will be your King. He will speak through your children. He shall come, and they shall praise, and they shall say, 'Come, and let us go unto the house of the Lord.' And I will raise up houses all throughout Japan that shall be houses of My Glory."

God says, "They will go and they will eat with their sticks, but," God says, "they will rise up and begin to say, 'It is time to use our natural forces and our natural abilities in the spiritual realm right now.'" God says, "I will take those that have studied the arts; they have studied the art," says the Lord, "of fighting." And God said, "I will raise up some of these to be the greatest warriors of the earth. They will no longer be warriors that will fight with swords. They shall not be warriors that chop with their hands and break bones within a second. They shall be warriors of the Most High God. They shall rise up."

And God said, "The young people of America shall see them as heroes. They've looked at all these movies, all these animated movies, and," God said, "they've become heroes. But a new hero is about to arise from Asia," says the Lord, "a hero that has the spiritual weapons of God. And this nation shall join hands with Asia and there shall be a massive revival that shall break throughout the earth," says the Lord.

"I'm Raising Up a Generation of Young Men and Young Women"

I count it a privilege and an honor to prophesy. He's really just giving forth life, breathing upon death. That's the power that we have. All over the earth, God is gathering prophets; young are seeing visions already we don't even know about...

"Your children, your children are dreaming dreams and having visions. Old men have given up, so I've transferred, for a season, dreams to young men and young women. And," God says, "once again the weak shall say, 'I am strong,' the poor shall say, 'I am rich.'

"There is no negotiation. The principalities of this time are looking to negotiate with the spiritual leaders: 'We will give you riches, we will give you land, we will give you fame, we will give you power.' But what is it that if a man gains the whole world and he loses his soul in the process? What if he gains the whole world and loses his soulmate in the process? For," God says, "The enemy has come to kiss you. Yes, your enemy has come to kiss you," says the Spirit of God, "as Judas came to kiss." So the Lord God says, "The kiss is present; there's a kiss present, the kiss of Judas is present. Yes, laugh at this prophet if you wish, but," God said, "the kiss of Judas is so close. Just a handshake and we can negotiate. Just a kiss and it will be revealed.

"For," God says, "this deceit has come and it has said, 'We will take the greatest and the strongest of men, and we will negotiate, and we will kiss them.' For even as the young men who have no understanding received the kiss of a strange woman and were taken to the chamber of death, so many of My men have been taken to the chamber of death," says the Spirit of God, "because they received the kiss. I speak not of adultery, I speak of the kiss that has taken them and seduced them into a whole new world where they have said, 'We must attain riches and we must water down this Gospel of the Kingdom.'"

And God said, "But yet there are young men and women that have said, 'Enough of this. We are going to stand up for the right, and we're going to stand up for the Christ and that which He has said.' For if He was prepared to lay down His life, and if He could walk into Jerusalem, and He could say to His disciples, 'I will go into Jerusalem and they shall take Me, they shall scourge Me, they will spit upon Me, they shall kill Me,' and," God says, "then He said, 'But three days later, I will rise again.'

"If Jesus could do this for us, how much more shall we do it? I'm raising up a generation of young men and women that will say, 'I will not love my life unto death. I have a testimony.' And this testimony will cause the powers of Hell to fall down at their feet and begin to worship God and they will say, 'We will not be satisfied until we worship Jesus. We will not be satisfied until the powers of Hell fall down and they worship at His feet.' Shout to the Lord, for this is about to happen," says the Lord.

There is a Mountain of Destiny

The Spirit of God says, "One more thing."

Lift your hands up, everybody. All of you watching me from all over, please listen to me. One more thing this night, as the prophet speaks from Tennessee. May it be known to you that floods have come your way, flooded out your malls. The earth has brought storms and rain. It has brought the shaking of the earth, and it has brought fire. And throughout a certain region, there's been an eruption.

Now the Spirit of the Lord says, "Do you understand that what is going to happen in America in this next year will cause people to write it down and say it was an historical event? 'We saw a mountain erupting, then we saw another one.'" And God said, "At that point in time, you will know that you've reached the mountain of destiny. You'll know that the eruption of spiritual vitality and life has begun." And God says, "Then you will no longer walk, but you will run; and your run shall be a fast and a swift run and you will celebrate, shouting, 'Victory!' as you run," says the Spirit of the Lord.

The Restoration of America

I see a president that shall come, and this is not to speak bad about this one. There is a president who will come. And God says, "He will have absolutely no fear – absolutely no fear. He will be decisive, he will make decisions. And then in the middle of the restoration of America – rapidly because of a source of energy that shall come quickly, and because of medical breakthroughs, and because of agreements between nations (specifically China)," God said, "They shall say, 'We never dreamed this would happen. They said that this in Japan would never happen.'"

God says, "Listen to Me. As the beginning of the restoration, as it begins, there shall be a woman that shall rise up – a woman that shall be strong in faith; virtuous. Beautiful in eyes – her eyes shall be so beautiful. Her eyes shall be round and big. I have crowned her," says the Lord, "as I crowned Esther. And the people shall receive her. She shall have the oil of gladness for the pain and the mourning that has taken place, and she shall pour out the oil." (Is there some oil here, please?) "She shall pour out the oil on this nation, and," God says, "healing shall begin and then it shall flow rapidly. Schools will be free from potential damage and danger, shootings and murder, drug addiction. Cartels shall be afraid of a woman – a woman anointed by God; a woman set aside."

And God says, "They will say, 'We hated her, but now we love her.' For she shall take the oil of healing and she shall pour it upon the scars of those left and those right and of the new party that has come forth and emerged, where they shall say, 'Christ will reign and we shall not implement socialism at all,' where they have said, 'We will make history without God.' No, you will not. No, you will not," says the Lord. "For I chose this nation before it was founded; before anybody came here, I chose this entire nation – all fifty states, every one of them, to send My Gospel to the entire earth. Do you think I have changed My mind? Therefore, the healing that is necessary for this nation shall come at a time in the middle of the presidency.

"There shall be a woman that shall come, and," God said, "there shall be oil that shall be poured upon the nation, and they shall suddenly feel the healing, and they shall say, 'It is well with my soul, it is well with our soul.' For the soul of America has been corrupted; the soul of this nation has been corrupted with bitterness and anger." And God said, "She shall say, 'No more bitterness, no more anger, no more division,' and she'll pour the oil that shall come from the Spirit of the Lord Himself."

If you as a nation believe, if you as a nation want this, lift your voice and shout one more time and say Yes! Yes to Esther! Yes to Esther! Yes to Esther!

Signs in the Sky, Land, Mountains and Sea

Prophesied on March 26, 2011 from Nashville, Tennessee:

"Do you want to hear the voice of God? For it is coming to you and it is coming to the nations. My voice will come throughout the earth. The skies – signs will be sent to you. Signs will be sent to you," says the Lord. "Mark the words of the prophet. Signs will be sent to you in 2011 – it's just begun. These are signs of things that are about to appear. I shall send signs in the sky, signs in the land, signs in the mountains, signs in the sea. They are releasing what is locked in the earth, what is locked in the sea.

"I am releasing from the earth resources for My people to prosper, for My people to rise up and declare My righteousness, for My people to create instruments – instruments that shall praise Me; for My people to be raised up and to be rich." For God says, "I take pleasure in the prosperity of My servants. I am sending signs. Some men shall fear. Their hearts shall fail them. They shall say, 'Where can we run?' There is no place to run."

You've got to run to the Rock, you've got to run to the Rock (repeats several times). You've got to run to the Rock (repeats); they're going to run to the Rock (repeat).

"This generation, hear the word of the Lord
You're going to run to the Rock, you're going to run to the Rock."

God says, "Are you ready? I'm going to take your young ones and they're going to
Run to the Rock, they're going to run to the Rock.

"I'm going to take them from the streets, I'm going to take them from the prison,
They're going to run to the Rock, they're going to run to the Rock.

"I'm going to shake them, loose them, raise them up
I'm going to shake them, loose them, raise them up
They're going to run to the Rock; they're going to run to the Rock.

"Young and old shall stand together
West and east shall take hands
I will make My name known in the music and the praise
They're going to run to the Rock, they're going to run to the Rock

"In Africa, America, in Asia, in China
They're going to run to the Rock, they're going to run to the Rock

"I'm going to take the druggie, I'm going to take the prostitute
I'm going to put them together
They're going to run to the Rock (4X)

"I'm going to take the politician
I'm going to take the religious leader
I'm going to show them who I AM
Display My power from the Rock of Ages,"
says the Spirit of God
"They're going to run to the Rock"

"People of all ages are going to say, 'What is going on, what's happening to these young people?' They will say, 'Who are these that have come to turn the world upside down?' They will hear about the miracles coming from the streets; they don't have to go behind the church world to know that Jesus is the Lord, He is Lord of all. And they will say: 'Let us run to the rock!'

"They they will say, 'Who are these people? Just like Elijah, they have no mother or father.' Without a mother or father, I, the Lord, will take them in. And they will say, 'Who are these people? The rock and roll prophets of the west! Prophets of the east!'

"From the north to the south, to the east to the west
They're going to say, 'Let's go to the rock!'
They're going to run to the rock!"

"For Just One Cry From a Righteous, I Turn My Ear to Listen"

"Do not say, 'He cannot do it.' Do not say, 'He cannot do it.' Do not say, 'The time has come to an end; there are no more revivals, there are no more souls to be saved.' Do not say, 'The Lord has given up on the holy ones on the earth.' For just one cry from a righteous and I turn My ear to listen to what they say. If one can chase a thousand and two can chase ten thousand, how many can three chase?" says the Holy One. "If one can chase a thousand and two can chase ten thousand, how many can three chase right now?"

For God says, "Get ready! Do not say! I said to Jeremiah, 'Do not say I am a youth, I cannot speak.' For at the time when they were worshiping Christ, many of the religious rulers came and said, 'Stop Your disciples, for they worship You.' And Jesus said, 'If they don't praise Me then the rocks are going to cry out My Name.'" God says, "If they don't praise Me, then the rocks are going to cry out My Name."

Ain't no rock gonna cry out His Name!
Ain't no rock gonna cry out His Name!
Cause I'm there to praise Him
I'm there to lift Him up
I'm there to dance before the Lord, just like David
I'm there to pray three times a day
I'm there to praise seven times a day
I'm there seven times a day
I'm there to pray three times a day
No rock is gonna cry out in my place

"Therefore," the Spirit of God says, "as you have gathered together in this holy nation – yes, this nation am I making holy – decisions shall be made and men will begin to say, 'We are tired of the blood of the righteous on our hands.'" For the Spirit of God says, "Even as your fathers have slain the prophets, so you have slain the prophets. You did not slay them when they were born; you slew them when they were yet unborn, and a prophetic generation was almost stopped by your legislation of abortion."

And God says, "Prophets died before they could say My Name. And Jeremiah said, 'I am young; I am a youth.' They did not even have a chance to speak His word; they were stopped in the womb. But satan did not manage to kill them all. Do you remember when Abimelech killed the sons of Jerubbaal? He killed all of them but one; one survived." And the Spirit of God says, "Some have survived the onslaught of abortion.

"Now," God said, "those that survived shall stand as Jotham did on Mount Gerizim when he began to prophesy against the people of Abimelech that stood to destroy the work of God." God said, "You thought you won a battle, a battle against the prophets. But watch these young ones arise and make declaration and bring tens of thousands, and millions, into the Kingdom of God as they run, run, run with a sign," says the Lord.

"Mercy, Mercy, Goodness Unto Your Land"
(Prophetic Song)

"I have not brought you to a mountain, thunders
I brought you to Mt. Zion
I have not brought you to a mountain, judgment, death

"Moses said, 'I am afraid
I'll run away, I'll run away'
Oh Lord, do You really want me to run away? (2x)

"Moses, only you could come to Me
You are the meekest man under

"Moses said, 'What of Your people, what of the ones You raised up?
What of Joshua and Caleb?'
Do you really want them to run away?

"Moses, one day I'll raise up a little boy to build a mountain
For Me to live upon
One day I'll find a man after My heart
One day I'll find a man that will love Me
And then I'll build a holy mountain where everyone can come

"Mercy will reign, goodness he'll proclaim
And like a child he will sing, like a child he will sing
The mountain of Zion

"One day I'll find a boy,
He'll become a man, but he'll always be a little boy in his praise
And he'll build a little mountain called Zion
And place a city there
And then I'll take Zion and place the chief cornerstone

"My son, He'll come from Zion
He'll come from Zion
And He will shout, 'There is mercy, mercy that endures forever!
His mercy endures, His mercy endures forever
God's mercy endures, His mercy endures forever'

"Then I'll raise up My Son
I'll bring the people there to the city of the Lord
Jesus, Mediator to the Blood of sprinkling that speaks
of better things than that of Abel

"They'll cry, 'Mercy, mercy, goodness unto the Lord'
They'll cry, 'Mercy, mercy, goodness unto the Lord (Repeats several times)
My salvation, salvation, goodness unto the Lord'

"America, I cry mercy, mercy, goodness unto the Lord
Salvation, salvation, goodness unto the Lord

"America," God says, "from this mountain
I'll cry mercy, mercy, goodness unto your land
Mercy, mercy, goodness unto your land
To this nation, I cry mercy, mercy, goodness unto this land
I cry salvation, salvation, goodness unto the Lord

"Mercy, mercy, goodness unto this land
Deliverance, deliverance, deliverance unto this land
Mercy and goodness unto this land
Mercy, deliverance and healing to this land (Repeats several times)
Salvation, salvation and healing to this land
Restoration, restoration to this land
Restoration, healing, deliverance to this land (repeats)

"America, mercy! America, salvation! America, deliverance!
America, restoration!
America, to your youth, to your children –
Mercy, mercy, goodness to your children!
Deliverance, deliverance, goodness to your children!

"Pray Nashville! Pray America! Pray China! Pray Japan! Pray Korea! Pray Africa! Pray islands of the sea! Pray Middle East! Pray, pray, pray tonight!"

"I Will Bring This Force, This Ruling Power, to Nothing"

A foreboding darkness, a foreboding darkness that has covered the land begins to tremble at the sound of the Spirit. The dead bones are coming to life. A great and mighty army is coming from the nation. But I see you, covered with your red spots as if you were the propitiation for mankind's sins. You liar! You are not the Christ and you shall be exposed. Down with you, Beast of the East – for your young men and women from the East, the Middle East, shall rise up and declare Yeshua! Yeshua! Yeshua! Yeshua!


Allah, pack your bags and get out of town
Allah, pack your bags and get out of town

I know it's loud, but bear with me. I'm caught up in the Spirit right now and catching glimpses of things...

I see an angel, but it is not an angel of God. It is covered with red spots. It is a garment that shall be seen in the future. They shall wear this garment; there shall be red, big red buttons, in order to capture our children. This has been sent by the rulers of the darkness of the Middle East, endeavoring to lure them into a new religion. It comes out of Islam. But Islam shall be at war with this one, and they shall drag away many of the young people. This is a false prophet. This one will only last for so long.

"Then," the Spirit of God says, "the power of the Blood of My Son shall speak. A generation shall say, 'No more, no more!' And this luring force shall topple, and there shall be tens to hundreds of thousands, then millions of young ones who will say, 'Where do we go? We cannot go back to Allah. This one has let us down; where do we go?' And My people shall open their hands, and they shall open their arms, and a massive move of the Spirit shall take place.

"Art, music, politicians, sportsmen shall be united together and shall make declaration. And there shall be a move of the Spirit so strong. And they shall shout from the south, east, north, west – 'Yeshua, and no other!' And I," says the Lord, "will bring this force, this ruling power, to nothing," says the Spirit of God.
