What Do We Do Now That We Have Come Out? Clay Sikes

Many have been called ‘out of the systems of men’ in various categories, from churches and ministries to business and banking. The systems of men are failing at an alarming rate, which begs the question, “Where do we go from here?” This universal inquiry besieges the masses, as many have sought ‘home church’ and Christian businesses as a possible solution to what has been left behind. For most, there is a recognition that though we have ‘come out’ physically, there is perhaps more that must come out of us. The wilderness has purpose.

The system is not only a structure organized by man, but also a mindset in each human being and one that takes years to adjust. That is why many so-called home churches have taken on the look and feel of a church, swapping the ‘church room’ for the ‘living room.’ Is wandering in the wilderness necessary? The very small company of Joshua and Caleb thought so.

We sense certain finality when we have departed the system; yet with time, there also remains an emptiness that interrupts those initial feelings of ‘finality,’ which carries with it the idea that there must be more, much more! The price of truly leaving the system is costly and somewhat daunting – the fullness of completion only comes after patience has had her perfect work. The Children of Israel wanted to return to Egypt when challenges came: they wanted the comfort and security that Egypt held, albeit as slaves.

Many ‘called out’ ones have returned, failing to realize that the wilderness experience had purpose. It is not enough to get delivered ‘from;’ we must get delivered ‘to,’ and here is where the rubber meets the road. Wandering, following the cloud and being fed manna requires extraordinary patience. Perseverance that ONLY God can produce is a required attribute, as this explains “many are called, few are chosen.”

I encourage all who are ‘out’ of the system to “wait upon the Lord,” as your wandering has a distinct destination – it is called the “Promised Land.” You may feel disjointed, disconnected, discombobulated, and disfigured, but ‘wait!’ God will lead you with the cloud by day and by fire at night. He will feed you manna while you stumble and fall in the wilderness, but wait! Just before entering you will see the promise, and you will also see the giants, but it is yours – take it!

Wheat from Tares - Wendy Christie

Wendy M Christie

Look for even a GREATER SEPARATION of the Wheat from the Tares as God is moving His people into a Greater Depth of PURITY of Heart. Those who are 'playing church' who have their FOCUS on other people or things are going to be very disappointed and they will also be very apparent to those who know and SEE the Truth as the light exposes their true nature and their lies.

When we have our eyes on other people to SEE what they are doing or not doing then we are inadvertently worshiping them and in competition - not good! THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS COMPETITION IN THE KINGDOM - SO WITH ALL DUE RESPECT AND BECAUSE I LOVE YOU AND GOD LOVES YOU - STOP WHINING AND GET ON BOARD WITH WHAT GOD IS DOING - THE TIME IS SHORT - DO NOT WIND UP ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THIS THING! ♥

Also, remember that we can not allow the immaturity and insecurity of others keep us out of the Will of God for our lives - let them have their own responsibility. We can only be there to love them, pray for them and help them get up and dust themselves off. It is time to shake the dust/death off of our feet and move in that which we were called to and created for. (When helping the swine out of the mud pit, do not get into the mud with them - this helps no one...)

Also, I want to encourage all of you who are rising up to TAKE your places of Authority (in obedience to God's Voice) - especially Apostles, Fathers, Mothers & many who are Apostolic in nature - no matter what the gifting...

God is IN the Intensity of this test & He is IN Truth, the one who has SET THIS TEST BEFORE YOU! Do not be surprised, Jezebel (religion, tradition, poverty, unbelief & fear - ALL one in the same) always rises up against the True Authority and she sure is throwing a fit - BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD!!! Take heart this is just a BLUFF for you to CALL OUT! Advance forward & TAKE THE LAND & WALK IN THE DOMINION THAT CHRIST PAID FOR AND HAS GIVEN BACK TO US! Glory to God!!!

This is what He gave me recently in a Word,

The Lord said, "The days of the 'Powerless House of God' ARE OVER! It is time for My True Church to take their Rightful places of Authority in the Earth. Do not Fear and Do Not Worry about those who 'seem' to be Standing In The Way - those in this 'mans system way of doing and thinking'." (Be mindful that they 'look' like they are the real thing - wolves in sheep's clothing showing the fruit of immaturity and playing the 'victim'). "Their MANipulation is seen by Me and they will Not be allowed to Prosper ANY Further. They will either Line Up or they will Fall Away. Take your places My Great Army - Take your Places for the Glory of Your King, for the Time is NOW and the Time is Short, take a Stand and STAND for the TRUTH, take a Stand for the PURE SEED, MY UNDEFILED and UN-MANipulated SEED, that has Not been touched by the hands of man. Take Your Stand, and TAKE IT NOW, says the Lord of Hosts."

Remember the FRUIT needs to be - NO FEAR - ONLY LOVE and DO NOT BE DECEIVED! ♥

Bob Jones: The Year of the Man - Sent to the Nations

Bob and Bonnie JonesIn a dream Bob had he was shown that 45% of Church leadership was JUST and living a righteous life. However, they were not accomplishing much because these leaders were not coming together in a common union or in agreement with one another.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment poured on the head, that ran down on the beard, even the beard of Aaron [the first high priest], that came down upon the collar and skirts of his garments [consecrating the whole body]. It is like the dew of [lofty] Mount Hermon and the dew that comes on the hills of Zion; for there the Lord has commanded the blessing, even life forevermore [upon the high and the lowly]. Psalm 133:1-3

When these leaders can come together in a common union they will determine the direction of this nation. They need to take communion together and agree on what they can agree on. When they come into unity with one another and in agreement with the Father, He will establish their word as it is decreed.

You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God's favor] shall shine upon your ways. (Job 22:28)

Until the dedicated Christian leaders come together in intercession for this nation, the Lord will not heal the land.

If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

It's time for the Church leaders to get a vision for world evangelism. This can only be accomplished by the leaders coming together in a spirit of unity. As leaders unite with each other and allow the Holy Spirit to lead them, then the Body of Christ will also come into joint unity and function as one Body in Christ.

There's a Body of Believers who have been in a season of intense training and preparation for the past three years. This year, 2012, they will begin to be sent to the nations.

The teaching below is Bob's revelation of the first chapter of Ezekiel and is explained in the 2012 Shepherd's Rod. It describes how the dedicated Christians have matured and advanced in the past three years and are now prepared to go to the nations.

As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man; each of the four had the face of a lion on the right side, each of the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and each of the four had the face of an eagle (Ezekiel 1:10).

"This is the Year of the Man"
-From 2012 Shepherd's Rod

"2012 is the year of the MAN. If you study the first chapter of Ezekiel, you'll see there are four creatures; the ox, eagle, lion and man. They each have the face of the man and he is the only one moving. This year the man walks forward in conjunction with the Holy Spirit.

And they went every one straight forward; wherever the spirit would go, they went, and they turned not when they went. (Ezekiel 1:12)

To recap the past three years prophetically, things began to really shake in this nation in 2009, and I saw that it was the year of the OX. It was one of the hardest years that people in the Church would go through. The ox plowed all year long over burned-out ground, not knowing why, and it was drudgery. 2009 was a very hard time!

2010 was the year of the EAGLE! It was the year that the eagle returned to the Son; it was a new beginning. The eagle learned how to escape its enemies that year by turning to God. We didn't have an understanding why the ox in 2009 had not plowed fallow ground or ground that had produced in the past. The ox was plowing new ground that had never been used before. The plowed ground had new energy and would last for centuries. This new ground that he was plowing was evangelism and it began with the labor of the ox.

The eagle came forth and sowed the seed. If the eagle sowed the seeds in unplowed ground, they wouldn't come up. The eagle had all the seeds it needed to sow in the plowed ground to begin the harvest. It was a time of the changing of the eagles. They sowed the seed to the Church that went into all humanity. Much of that seed went into the youth that were being saved. This was the beginning of the harvesters preparing to come forth in the following year.

2011 was the year of the LION and things came into order and power. The lion possessed great authority, and I believe we began to see a recovery of the eagle bringing fresh revelation to the Church. He ruled as king with authority over powers, principalities, thrones and dominions. The lion refused to be distracted by the enemy as he made strides for the Kingdom. The lioness was bold and courageous as she moved into her rightful position beside her mate. The enemy did not intimidate her, and by the Spirit she led her young. These young ones will become the harvesters that will rule with the authority of the Lion from the tribe of Judah.

In 2012 the man will be sent to the nations. He'll go forth in the nature of the ox being the servant and the sacrifice. The man will also move in the nature of the eagle having the prophetic vision, the seed, the motivation and the direction. He'll move in the authority of the lion with great signs and wonders, especially power evangelism beyond anything we've ever seen before. This man will be moving with all these natures and will take them to the entire world.

Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession (Psalm 2:8).

These men will form great armies and move in one accord; they will not break rank (Joel 2:7b). They will come together in the nature of Christ and march as Joel's end time army in the love of God.

I believe that 2013 will begin the greatest harvest of all time, which will continue to increase. By 2017 I believe there will be a harvest so awesome that man has no idea how to comprehend what it will be."

As an ending note, the Body follows the head and the head of the Church must be Jesus Christ, our firm foundation. When Church leadership can come into unity with one another submitted to the leading of the Holy Spirit of Truth and lay their agendas aside, the Body will flow in unity with one another to finish the greater works Christ died for.

It is like the precious ointment poured on the head, that ran down on the beard, even the beard of Aaron [the first high priest], that came down upon the collar and skirts of his garments [consecrating the whole body]. Psalm 133:2

Keith Miller: "Wake Up! Something Has Begun!"

Are You Ready to Shift into High Gear?

Fresh Momentum: momentum is defined as force or speed of movement. There is fresh momentum from the Lord brought about by the whisper of His voice which releases faith that empowers in the inner man – to move forward in all that He has open for you. It is the current of movement of His zeal deep in you! Praise the Lord for the current of faith flowing for you.

A fresh wind of God's Spirit is blowing where it chooses to change and bring fresh awakening in His People and in the land. God is about to breathe a fresh stirring in you and into the Body of Christ for deep refreshment and an energy boost that will renew your strength as in your youth, and cause you to rise up in anticipation of all that God is about to do in your sphere of influence, in cities, and the nations!

And friends, as this precious wind blows in and over and under and through your life, you will awaken to possibility so incredible, you will wonder why you ever doubted God's very best for you. There won't be any turning back. No way! You won't want to ever turn back the pages of your life that haven't counted for God; you'll leave the past in the dust and zip into your future with zeal and into those things the Lord Himself died to birth in you. Yes, this is that day, and now is the time to awaken to the breath and the Glory of the Lord upon you.

In my new prophetic book, The Breath of the Spirit, I recorded a dream the Lord gave me concerning the Wind/Breath of the Spirit, which I would like to share with you here, as well as excerpts from the first chapter, which I believe is relevant right now, this moment in time. I am so anxious for the Body of Christ to be in the expecting mode, and I hope what follows provides you encouragement and excitement and preparedness for what lies ahead.

Following the excerpts, please read my summary, for eight (8 being the number for new beginnings) things that you can do right now to be ready for this incredible coming move of God!

The Dream: "Wake Up!"

In the quiet early morning twilight, a fresh unseen Whisper of the Wind began to gently blow through a camp of a sleeping multitude. The swirling breeze fanned the banked coals of the large campfire causing fiery flakes to spark and dance into the damp dew of the darkness, reigniting the fire. Flames leapt into action to supply the camp with light and warmth. The wind, as it had the sleeping coals, also stirred a portion of the people within the camp awake, simultaneously, as if an alarm clock had sounded. They rose in wonder as the Voice of the Lord aroused their hearts, and filled them with growing anticipation of the breaking of a dawn of Morning Glory unlike any other.

The Voice of the Lord instructed, "Rouse the camp! Rally everyone for the early morning gathering! Much is to be done!" Even before the Watchman could signal or blow his trumpet, they began to awaken the others: "Wake up, wake up! Something has begun!" Many rubbed the sleep from their eyes as they arose; others popped right awake, immediately shedding their blankets. The Whisper of the Wind, like a Holy stirring, rushed through their souls, stirred and prepared hearts for the breakthrough of the Morning Glory, preparing them for Truth that would cause many to behold the New Day in a new way, preparing them for action. Then the trumpet sounded, and the Watchman cried out, "Awaken, awaken! Awaken the troops! Rally the people!"

The whole camp now was alive and revived, caught up in the momentum of the unseen wind; people gathering, ready for commissioning, assignments and action. What had moments previously appeared as a sleeping camp, was now afire with fresh excitement, passion, and awareness of a dawning. Everyone was wide awake for what the New Day would hold; gathering and standing at the ready, staring up in awe and glorious anticipation, shouting encouragement to one another: "It is time – be of good courage!" The glistening light broke through the sky and painted it with the colors of the Brightness of the Rising which appeared in awesome splendor over the horizon.

Oh yes, this was a different day. This unseen wind was the very breath of their Living God, rushing into and awakening their very souls to the fragrance of His life, opening their eyes to the fullness of His majesty, presence, power and glory, reviving their hearts to truly behold the reality of His life with the expectancy of hope and triumphs of faith, for His Name's sake, His glory, His renown. As eyewitnesses to the Brightness of the Rising, they would testify of the knowledge of Him as Victory and Resurrection – Victory and Resurrection as a Person we can know now.

They would run and not grow weary, move ahead with a great sense of direction and purpose with clear vision, passion, purpose and zeal; faces glowing with the glory, full of strength. They would hear God's heart, His purposes, His plans, and they would testify to the fact that Jesus is alive and speaking to His people today. "...the secret of the Lord belongs with those who fear Him" (Psalm 25:14); "the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy" (Revelation 19:10).

EVERYTHING would shift, change and rearrange. The wind would carry each person far above and beyond their expectations and right into their hopes and dreams in Him. This was the very hour of a transforming move of His Spirit corporately and individually and across the land never yet before beheld or experienced.

Summary: He is About to Blow Us Away

We are in a fantastic day as Believers and collectively as the Body of Christ. A fresh Breath of God is blowing across the spiritual landscape of our time all over the world, and awakening many from sleep to behold His glory. The Voice in the Wind is crying out across the nations, all over the world to those awaking, waiting, and at the ready to hear their call, their destiny. Things are about to intensify; God is about to move in the most incredible way, with His presence filling our lives in unusually strong ways, never before experienced. He is about to blow us away with His most intensive breath yet.

1. Resolve to Arise! God commands it! It is an act of obedience to arise! Why? We are all called to rise to a new life, to shine and radiate with the glory of the Lord. Practice rising in the natural. Set your alarm clock for a time in the middle of the night where you can arise for a few moments to spend some time with the Lord. Or, arise at your usual time every morning, but welcome Him into your day, verbally or through worship or song or through the reading or contemplation of the Word as your first thought and/or action.

2. Ask God to give you a heart for harvest. Our busyness in our day-to-day, and our anxieties concerning finances and the state of things in the nation and the world can cause us at times to lose focus, or even forget the millions and millions of lost souls out there who need Jesus.

3. Take stock of every promise, dream, vision, word of knowledge, prophetic word given to you, and ask God to rekindle the flame of desire for those things in you. If you don't know your assignment ask Him for it, and to cement within your heart, that nothing – nothing – nothing will stop you, not your reasoning, someone else's reasoning, not your circumstances, not your reputation, not false expectation, not the jeering crowd, nothing, nothing will deter you from fulfilling your God-given assignment and destiny in Him.

4. Though this past season has been one of preparation, positioning, and alignment, you may not be sure that you are, or perhaps things have fallen apart in your life. Ask God if you are in proper alignment, and to show you areas in need of improvement. Perhaps you still need a shift here or a nudge there in your life; let the Holy Spirit show you through the Word, and in the quiet still of His voice. The enemy will try to convince you that things are hopeless, that you are too far gone to get back on track. Only allow the Holy Spirit to lead you: not your reasoning, circumstances, or anything or anyone else!

5. Hold your peace, it is God's battle, not your battle; hold your position in prayer, rely on God, and believe He is working on your behalf.

6. Expect God! Hope in Him! Wait upon Him! Awaken to Him! Awakening is the doorway/gate to transformation. Memorize Isaiah 40:31, make it your cell phone or computer screensaver or wallpaper, stick it on the fridge, on the dash of your car, get it deep deep down into your spirit, this is key to the coming move!

"But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired." Isaiah 40:31 AMP

7. Ask God to help you see your difficulties in a new light as opportunities, so that they do not negatively consume you and zap your energy.

8. Resolve to love God and others outrageously. And, bask in God and His love for you.

A Key - Delight in Him by Robert Hotchkin

I read this today and it rings true. I know that it will bless you as it did me.

For several years now, I have been overcoming what the professionals call an "incurable" illness, and contending for a miracle of healing. Not contending to be healed one day, but contending to see the full manifestation of the healing I know that I already have through the finished work of the Cross. It has been a glorious journey – full of ups and downs, breakthroughs and testimonies. And all the while the Lord has given me the grace to keep my eyes on His promises, and the faith to know that they are mine because of His sacrifice.

One of the many miracles along the way was during the last six months when the Lord connected me with an amazing doctor in Europe who was able to accurately diagnose what was going on, and create a course of treatment. Recently I arrived back in Europe for another round of treatments. My first morning here I was in prayer and the Lord spoke to me. He told me that my assignment while I was in Europe this trip was to learn to delight in Him – no matter what. He let me know that "delighting in Him" is a key that helps bring forth all of His promises when we are in the midst of a battle – to see what we know is ours come forth. He also spoke to me that this was not just a key for me, but for all of the Body of Christ while we are in this "entering-into" season of early 2012.

Knowing His Promises

Knowing God's Word, knowing His promises, and knowing that they are ours is very important. We must know what is ours through the Cross. We must know that everything pertaining to life and godliness HAS BEEN (not will be, but has been) given to us through Christ Jesus (2 Peter 1:3). But even more important than knowing the promises is to know Him who made the promises. Knowing His love and kindness and mercy and grace and generosity... Knowing His character and nature... Knowing that this Amazing Father of ours who gave His Son for us withholds none of His goodness, blessings or promises from us... ever! (Romans 8:32)

If you are in the midst of a battle right now, if you are contending for a promise of God, if you have been declaring and decreeing in faith, I want to say, "Well done, good and faithful one!" Every one of your decrees has had an impact. Every one of your declarations of His promises and His Word has made a difference. Well done! I also want to share with you the key the Lord shared with me: Delight in Him – no matter what!

No matter what the doctor reports say. No matter what the bank statements say. No matter what the headlines say. Delight in the Lord! All of His promises are yes and amen! And all of His promises are for you. If you haven't seen them fully manifest yet, don't give into the temptation to despair or grow weary. Instead, take a moment from focusing on the promises and turn to the One who made them. Turn your eyes to Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face! Delight in Him. Delight in this One who has given us everything, who has done everything. Delight in the Lord who is faithful and true and good and loving and kind and generous. Delight in Him. No matter what! And all the rest of it will just melt away. I know. I am doing this every day, over and over again. And as I delight in Him, the One who has promised that I am healed by His stripes, it is so easy to believe and receive the promise with fresh faith and certainty – no matter what!

Probably the best known Scripture in the Bible about delight is Psalm 37:4 which reads, "Delight yourself in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart." Two phrases – one an instruction, the other a promise. Let's take them one at a time.

A Soft Heart is a Receiving Heart

"Delight yourself in the Lord." That word delight in the original Hebrew is "anag" which means "to be soft or pliable." When our circumstances are difficult, or we have been believing for a promise of God to come forth and it has not yet manifested when we think it should or the way we think it should, we can often suffer from disappointment and discouragement. This can cause us to harden our hearts toward God, giving into fear and lies like, "Well, He hasn't come through yet so maybe He isn't going to." But when we take our eyes off those circumstances and put them back on God, we remember what He is really like. We remember that He is loving and kind and merciful and gracious and generous and faithful and trustworthy – no matter what! When we stop trying to figure out what He is doing, and focus on what He is like, it becomes easy to delight in the Lord. And as we do, our hearts "anag" – they soften, opening back up to Him, and we are able to believe and receive again.

God Does Not Need to Be Bribed

The second part of the Scripture promises, "And He will give you the desires of your heart." The word give in the original Hebrew is "nathan" which has many meanings including "to bring forth." Psalm 37:4 is not a quid pro quo statement. God is not saying, "Okay if you first give Me delight then I will give you the promises you have been wanting." God is not holding out on us until we sweet talk Him with delight. Not at all! He is giving us a key to unlock those promises, to bring them forth!

We must always remember that God has already given us everything (2 Peter 1:3, Ephesians 1:3, Romans 8:32, Luke 15:31, Romans 8:15-17). The promise of Psalm 37:4 is not that if we give God delight He will give us the blessings we desire. The promise of Psalm 37:4 is that when we delight in the Lord we will remember what He is like, we will remember all He has done, and we will remember that He has already given us all that He promised through the Cross at Calvary. When we delight in the Lord, every hard place in our heart begins to soften, we begin to trust Him and His Word again, and then we are able to come back into a place of bold faith that looks beyond our circumstances to know His promises are true – no matter what! Our delight in the Lord actually works to bring forth what is already ours that a part of us had stopped trusting and believing for.

Victory Is Certain

Psalm 37:4 doesn't tell us to delight in our circumstances. It doesn't even say for us to delight in God's promises. It says to delight in the Lord! Jesus said in John 16:33 that we would often have challenges in this world, tests and trials. But He told us that when we do face times like that, we must remember that He has overcome the world for us. In other words, He was saying that when our circumstances are not delightful we are to remember Him who always is delightful, and as we delight in Him we will remember that no matter how things look right now, victory is certain because He has already secured it for us (2 Corinthians 2:14).

Delight is a key. Delight is a weapon. Delight is a refreshing cup of cool water after a long, dry spell of enduring in faith. Delighting in the Lord is its very own reward, and how marvelous that it also helps bring forth every other reward we have through our inheritance in Christ!

The Fallacy of Full-Time Christian Work by Os Hillman

THIS has been my Testimony as well:

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." - Colossians 3:23-24

"I didn't know you were in full-time Christian work," said my close friend as we were driving. "I didn't realize that," she went on. I responded, "Every person who has followed the will of God in their life is in full-time Christian work." God calls some to the mission field, others to be accountants, and others to be advertising executives, and still others to be construction workers. God never made a distinction between sacred and secular. In fact, the Hebrew word avodah is the root word having the same meaning of "work" and "worship." God sees our work as worship.

We have incorrectly elevated the role of the Christian worker to be more holy and committed than the person who is serving in a more secular environment. Yet the call to the secular workplace is as important as any other calling. God has to have His people in every sphere of life. Otherwise, many would never come to know Him because they would be separated from society.

I learned this lesson personally when I sought to go into "full-time" service as a pastor in my late twenties, only to have God thrust me back into the business world unwillingly. This turned out to be the best thing He could have done for me, because it was never His will for me to be a pastor. He knew I was more suited for the workplace.

We are all in missions. Some are called to foreign lands. Some are called to the jungles of the workplace. Wherever you are called, serve the Lord in that place. Let Him demonstrate His power through your life so that others might experience Him through you today and see your vocation as worship to His glory.

People will NOT attribute to God the Manifestation of The Supernatural when it comes

Most people on the earth will stand in amazement when God releases His angels to minister to us visibly. We will hear all kinds of explanations. Aliens. Shapeshifters. Nephilim. Anything but giving Glory to the Living God.

It's really hard to swallow if you aren't a believer.

If you are, it makes all the sense in the world, and in eternity

AND THAT makes all the difference between saved and lost.


Beloveds, I know that there seems to be conflicting prophetic words that are being espoused. Many have shared My words of coming judgement and shaking in the world for this year. Yet still others have shared their excitement and joy at the coming of My Glory. Children, do not be confused and do not be distracted by these messages. Both messages are from Me and both messages will work together simultaneously to bring about My purpose and My plans.

Do not run around looking here and there, wondering what you should do. Continue doing what I have called you to do and that is to seek Me with a humble and obedient heart. Surrender your life and everything in it to Me and allow Me to continually conform you into the image of My Son. I have great things planned for each one of you, but do not be bothered by what you shall do until I ask you to step out. Then step out in faith believing that you have been prepared for My work.

Beloved, remember that no matter what you hear and what you see, I am still in charge and everything will happen according to My will. Do not be concerned or anxious about any of the coming events; just keep your heart close to Me. Keep your eyes attuned to My voice. I am your Shepherd and you are My sheep. Precious and beloved are each one of you.

Do not let the enemy allow to stir up fear or anxiety in your heart about the coming events. Remember, it is I, your Lord and God that have laid each step out for what will come. Keep your eyes on Me and Me alone. Nothing has changed. Though I will shake the earth and there will be much upheaval, if your foundation is in Me as it should be, you will be safe. If your security is in Me, you should not and shall not fear. I am Jehovah God. I am in charge and you are in the palm of My hand if you choose Me and put your trust and faith in your Lord God. Do not fret My children. Do not look around at what you are hearing and be afraid. Trust Me and remember your faith is in Me to deliver you.

I know many have asked how can their be two messages, one of judgement and one of glory. Beloveds, this is the same message. Do not allow the enemy to come and separate these two words and create confusion. I am coming as I have spoken to so many of My own. To those that have heeded My word and remained steadfast in Me, it will be a time of great joy and blessing. They will see Me High and lifted up. Their faces will shine in the light of My Glory. All that I have promised them is coming forth. They are filled with excitement, expectation and a bubbling joy at the word of the Lord.

Yet there are others who have not heeded the words of My prophets. They have lived for themselves and this world. Their security is in their own abilities and in this decaying world. They do not see that all that they have built is on a sand foundation. It will collapse underneath them. No, they think they are safe and secure. So, I have declared My coming to them as one of judgement and shaking. I will shake their foundations. I will test their security. Their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person's work.

My judgments and shaking are to strip away all that is not of Me, so that I may be revealed. How can anyone desire the things of God, when there hands are already full of the shiny trinkets of this world? Their eyes have not been opened yet to the true gifts that do not tarnish or fade. My shaking is the thing that will open many eyes and reveal the true state of their hearts. Many will see their nakedness and turn to Me and repent of their sins. They will be gathered unto Me and I will be their One True God.

Children, do not be confused about what is to come. I am the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. My love and My ways have not changed. Everything I do is because I love each and every one of you and it is My desire that NONE of you should perish, but have everlasting life in Me. I am coming with love. I am coming with mercy for those that will receive it and I am coming with blessing for those that are prepared. Seek Me first in all things, I will guide you and watch over you. No harm shall come to those who are My own. Look to the Father and look to the Son and live in the Spirit, it is then that you shall see My purposes.

Psalm 28: 8 - 9

8 The LORD is the strength of his people,
a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
9 Save your people and bless your inheritance;
be their shepherd and carry them forever.

The Lord gave me this revelation yesterday that speaks to the word above:

The battle of Jericho is the perfect analogy of what is to come:

In these events, there were 2 groups of people that stood on either side of the walls of Jericho. The obedient children of God on one side and the people of the land or world on the other.

The wall represented two different things to each of these groups. To one it represented security and protection; yet, for the other it represented a temporary obstacle to the fruition of God's promises. The obedient children of God relied on His Faithfulness and could see spiritually the walls collapsing. The people of Jericho looked to the wall and put their faith in their earthly fortress to keep them safe.

But, then God began to shake the walls and they came tumbling down. Those that put their trust in God rejoiced, but the others were struck with fear at the Power and Holiness of God Almighty.

I researched the walls of Jericho and the above revelation was confirmed and supported by this:

( cho/jericho-4.php)

"As the Israelites were blowing of God's Jubilee Trumpets announcing that God's Kingdom was at hand, declaring God's victory and His imminent judgement on Jericho, sounding the doom of Jericho. (This was also a final warning and opportunity to those inside to repent of their rejection of God and surrender). "

"Also during this time, Israel's eyes would have been on the Ark of the Covenant, reminding them of God's mighty Presence in their Midst, the same God that had rolled back the waters of the Jordan a few days before. As they heard the Trumpets proclaiming God's Victory, FAITH would have been rising in their hearts, and the sense of excitement and anticipation of what God was going to do would have been growing stronger and stronger. Meanwhile the fear in the hearts of the inhabitants of Jericho would also have been steadily rising."

The trumpets have signaled God's Presence and His Imminent Glory.

It is a warning to those on the wrong side of the wall and a sense of security to those on the right side. The walls are coming down!!!

Many Blessings,

Only a seared Conscience will allow a Christian to remain blind

I think a lot about Nazi Germany. My heritage. How people could have allowed such evil to manifest without much visible argument. How people of good "christian" faith could have overwhelmingly voted in a man who was open about his despising of the very foundations those who voted him in stood for.

As he seized more and more power, as he implemented policies and strategies to solidify that power the crowds only grew. Sieg Heil they said. They would go to the rallies, torch parades and then go home to gather their family to teach them the charlatanism. Even the Catholic church leaders were part of this. Here's disturbing pictures of Catholic leaders saluting Hitler. These "spiritual" leaders paved the way for a tragic future and the collapse of Germany at the end of the war.

Even today if you get inside some German households, particularly older people, they will defend those days, "Hitler hat recht" Hitler did a lot of things right. The hero worship is still strong.

I wonder if there was ever a time when the true Christians of Germany came to a watershed moment, when the had the chance at the ballot box to reverse the curse that was coming on them, if they had a tipping point that tipped not for freedom but for tyranny?

What did Hitler do that caused people to ignore their righteous judgement and allow evil to manifest? He was a powerful speaker. Well rehearsed. No spontaneity. He practiced and practiced. He was a charismatic figure manufactured by the press who loved him. He represented change. Against the big money "Jews". He offered free health care to all. He told people that there would be great sacrifice but that they could buy into a dream and a future where things would be controlled by a race, a master race.

Even when Hitler began killing deformed and invalid babies after birth, even when mentally ill people were rampantly euthanized, old people put to death and any political opposition crushed by incarceration in concentration camps, people still supported him. The euphoria was rampant. When Hitler showed up, people were proud of their racial identity. I am GERMAN. Women fainted in his presence. Many confessed to wanting to bear his children. He was in his Aryan way very attractive, even sexy.

Yet he took the nation further down into perdition than anyone might have imagined and he did it with the full permission of the population. Those who would ultimately be most abused, most penalized by his despotism voted for him happily.

What does this have to do with the prophetic? I am watching this happen once again. I was alive when Hitler lived. A baby of course, but the timeline means I recall well as a youth the years shortly after the war. Adolph Eichmann. The concentration camps of death.

We are now at a tipping point of history in this nation. The culture, even many good "christians" and "christian leaders" are embracing the direction this nation is headed under leadership that is taking us places we never imagined as a nation we would go. Directly and passively we have as so called believers in Jesus allowed to manifest in so many evil ways.
  • Abortion, even imposed on faith based communities
  • Infanticide by allowing surviving aborted babies to die
  • Euthanasia by government health care mandate (death panels)
  • Blatant homosexuality to the imposition of same sex marriage in many states
  • Pornography openly displayed at the click of a mouse
  • Diversions of entertainment and sports to keep people's minds occupied as the culture collapses. NCAA and the Oscars. If people are so involved in the Whitney Houston Funeral they won't see what is happening all around them. If people are so involved in filling in the brackets, they won't fill in the blanks of the cultural collapse happening right before their eyes.
  • Theft by corrupt politically connected people of the treasury of the United States
  • Corrupt Crony Capitalism...people with power granted by Washington doing business when others might be able to do it better or for less.
  • Greater and greater control and command on nearly every facet of our lives. Freedoms lost.
  • A larger and larger police state presence everywhere you look
  • Cameras everywhere that record our every movement
  • Blatant Vote fraud to win elections
  • Using race to divide people, Germans V Jews and other "inferior" races
  • The use of fringe thuggery groups to drive compliance (Brownshirts)
  • Changing Labor Unions (like Ironworkers) to Government Controlled Unions (SEIU)
  • Wars that have no potential for good and corrupt leaders who implement them
  • Doing many things that are evil in the name of reducing unemployment and economic growth. This is EXACTLY what Adolph Hitler did in his day. He kept promising to reduce unemployment and economic growth. AND HE declaring war on the world. In the name of egalitarianism of outcome great evil is released.
The recklessness of mindless economic intervention is what ultimately caused the German economy to collapse. Hitler kept spending money he didn't have to drive a war effort that couldn't sustain. The people suffered the most. There was nothing left as he sucked all the air out of the economy to drive his insane plans. The very people that voted for him were the ones who were hurt the most as the collapse came.

We are there once again. I don't care what name you put on all this. Bush. Obama. It's a trend-line that accelerated toward the end of the Clinton Administration. It is growing worse and worse. Unless we do something to reverse the curse of corruption and evil we are headed down a worse path.

Don't bother voting a party. Look at the list of evils in our nation and without thinking about sports and entertainment, who supports and who apposes this by their action, by they way they vote, the way they live their lives, the policies they implement, who is the person I can vote for who will bring us back from the brink of evil? No matter how wonderful he seems, the proof is in the pudding. I don't care who prays for or with him. Many executioners prayed before burning "heretics" at the stake.

If you vote your party, your religion, your race, your celebrity endorsement, your ball team that is what it means to Vote blindly. Just like they did 80 years ago in Germany.

I am a watchman. This is the gathering storm on the horizon. Who will hear the watchman's call?

It is Irresponsible for me to believe "My God will Supply all my Needs" if I continue to make bad decisons

“And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

Since God will supply, do I just sit back and do nothing? Or do I have a responsibility to do something? If I do something, is that showing a lack of faith, or just being responsible?

Now that I’ve got you thinking, I’ll share my thoughts on the question. I think it’s a combination of both –trusting God and doing my part. God does expect me to act responsibly and use my resources well. I need to make wise decisions and be a good steward of my money, time, talent, and resources.

This is more than budget. This is much more than being careful with your money. This is a matter of making sound decisions in every facet of your life and trusting God to make up the difference. My experience has been that when I miss God he will allow me to struggle in my bad decision making. That happens in every area that I make decisions:

  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Smoking
  • Drugs
  • Relationships
  • Finances
  • Work
  • Personal Habits
  • Addictions
  • Friends
  • Time Spent
  • Language Used
  • Laws Kept
  • Child Raising
  • How I vote
  • Philosophies I follow
  • Music I listen to
  • Sexual behaviors
  • How I spend my money
  • Generosities

And probably a dozen or more beyond that. This is a short list of things in which I must be responsible to be able to proclaim with confidence that "My God Shall Supply All My Needs".

He isn't going to "supply all your needs" for a big screen TV, Bulls game tickets, Crack, Whiskey, Reefer, Ding Dongs, Money for a Hooker if you are hooked on those "Needs". He will not sanction rebellion or an intentional lack of competence.

I know this is harsh, but we have come to a place in our culture where people are accepting of impending difficulty and without considering what part they played in setting the stage they say with all the religious fervor they can muster, "My GOD shall supply all my NEEDS".

I have bad news for you, if you continue to rebel and run from God in these areas, he will allow you to come to the pig pen stage. There were a lot of people in the land of Zarephath of Sidon who were starving. They may have believed that "My God shall supply all my needs". But they died none the less. We do know that the widow called upon by Elijah to give him a cake to eat did NOT because she was responsible. 1 Kings 17

There is much responsibility in saying "My God shall supply all my Needs" if we are doing things that push back against his ability to do so. IF we are behaving in a way that counters the purposes of God in our lives.

We are in a critical time in this nation, the people of God are about to test that truth. Many will discover they have been found wanting and the Biblical truth which was always conditional will manifest in lack. Many will suffer because they knew right to do and did it not. They let other voices, not the voice of the Shepherd lead them

May you and I understand and respond. I'm laying hands on myself on this one.

Too Soon can be Too Late

We are experiencing very unseasonable warm weather in Chicago. It's too soon for this. The whole cycle of nature will be thrown out of whack. Opportunities that are scheduled for the change of season will be lost.

That will mean for many that this season that started too soon, will make it too late to capture the opportunities. Plants that should have been dug and loaded will remain unharvested.

The spiritual implications of that are not unseen.

"Behold I am coming soon", Jesus said. "Look about you at the signs".

"The fields are ripe unto harvest".

"Yet...if I come too soon, it will be too late for many, I don't desire that ANY perish".

"So...harvest now..... for evenso I come".

When Prophets of them is NOT hearing from GOD... How Can This Be?

I have taken note of the word of the Lord brought by many I know in the name of the Prophet. They are standing in the place of the prophet and yet I see and hear things that are in stark contrast. How can this be?

This is NOT about eschatology, last days, signs of the times, Biblical interpolation. Those are speculations. They are interpretations. They are not certain. They are the word of God yet not manifested. Those who treat them with prophetic certitude do so to the discredit of the word of God. Look at the fiasco regarding the end time, rapture and so forth last year. This question, "How can this be" is not about the interpretation of scripture. That's pretty subjective stuff that we won't grasp except in the rear view mirror and it will astound us when it happens.

This is about when two prophets stand and proclaim a thing and they are in sharp disagreement. God is NOT schizophrenic. He is ONE God. Three Persona...but ONE. He doesn't contradict himself.

Every single prophet I know and respect understands the state of our nation, the lost direction of our culture, of our government and the evil of the Beast of Islam. YET, there are voices who would propose they are prophetic and would speak opposite of what the true prophets are saying. I know Jeremiah was up against this. He had prophets around him who contradicted what he said.

Someone was wrong. Someone heard from God.

That is why in this critical time you HEAR from the true prophets of God. Ignore me. Ignore Kim Clement if you choose. But hear what the spirit of God is really saying. It must be a light to your path, a lamp to your feet or there's a chapter in your Bible that needs tearing out. It must be daily Bread or Jesus was lying. It must NEVER contradict what the word of God says...ever.

That is why the compromises made from so called pulpits around the nation are such an abomination. They take the name of the Lord in Vain. That's why those who support those with policies that encourage fornication, infanticide, abortion and corruption will be held to such a strict account. They will be torn down. God is NOT mocked.

There is much evil accomplished thru good people who embrace a man, a movement, a political ideal without the Spirit of God present. Some even walk in pretense of being teachers, pastors, reverend. They are the point of the spear that pierces the side of the Body of Christ once more.

I say this by the Spirit of God...judgement will come. Be very careful then how you walk, how you live. Don't find yourself swayed by your culture, your bias or your traditions. It is the path to perdition.

IF you are a prophet, you must not allow yourself to be swayed by the moment. Even if it's must tell the truth or God will lift his anointing. The call will remain. You may even be able to minister...but you will do so in a cloud. The blindness of Balaam will cause you to stumble. God needs his prophets...hear what the Spirit of the Lord is Saying.

My dream The Civil War of the Church by Scott Harper

I had a dream-vision and in the dream-vision I saw that the Church was caught in a Civil War. This war is NOW going on and is a mirror image of our countries Civil War. The Confederate states-church vs this Union states-church. The Confederates were fighting to keep people bound in slavery and they had two flags, the Confederate flag and also the "Don't Tread On Me" flag which Satan himself had raised as a standard, representing himself! The Union states-churches had their flag and represented freedom. As I laid there watching this dream unfold, I was made aware by the Lord that there is a war going on in America. This war is happening on the battlefield called the Church. The UNION army dressed in blue representing Freedom-the New Covenant-cross-finished work-grace-sonship vs. The CONFEDERATE army representing Law-Old Covenant-works-carnal Christianity-Religious form-lacking power-ritual-traditions of men and false doctrines of men and Satan.

This war is meant by Satan to conquer and divide the Church into two Churches - the Holy Church and the Harlot Church. In the dream, the line had been drawn , the war had been engaged and the battle was in full effect as I watched the two sides start marching towards one another to fight. The UNION side was much smaller than the Confederate side and seemed to be at a huge disadvantage just by mere numbers. The Union side were not lined like you would expect an army to be lined up in formation, shoulder to shoulder and in rows. Instead, they were gathered together in small clusters as the marched. The Confederate side appeared to me to be much older, richer and much more organized. They seemed to have more unity and fire power and had an air about them...a pompous, cocky, attitude as they marched on together towards the smaller, rag tag Union company of soldiers.

As the two armies marched towards one another, I noticed that the Union soldiers seemed care free and had a glow about them, this all seemed new and exciting to them. They were not anything like the Confederate soldiers, who seemed to have this, been there, done that attitude and were acting like this would be an easy victory for them. Then to my surprise as the two armies got face to face, the Union army did not stop to raise their weapons or to engage battle with the Confederates!!! Instead, they just walked into the Confederate camp, spread out and started talking one on one with the Confederate soldiers. The faces of the Union soldiers were full of love, joy and faith, they were unorthodox in appearance to me.

The talking went on for some time, and then next, many of the Union soldiers started hugging, and putting their hands on the enemy soldiers backs, opening up their bibles and were laying down their weapons. The two armies then started sitting down together on the battle field. The Union soldiers continued sharing the Word with these Confederate men and were even praying with them. A Spirit of repentance eased over the battlefield like a fine mist and many of the confederate soldiers began to cry and then laugh and began to repent. Soon after this, I noticed that the Union soldiers would stand up, reach down and help the Confederate soldiers up. They would point to the Union side-camp and invite them to come over and join them and join their side, the Union side. This was the case for the mass majority of the Confederate soldiers, they were not fighting, they were switching over to the other side. Great excitement and joy rose up within me to see such a wonderful thing.

All of a sudden Satan with his flag bearer came out of a tent from the rear. He was quite enraged and was beating on and yelling at those leaders- generals who he had put in charge. He was obviously upset at this grand site. The battle that day was won by love, prayer, boldness, brotherhood and sharing of the Word, many soldiers converted and renewed their faith and came into proper Union with Christ. And as for Satan, well the ancient prophetic decree given way back was seen being fulfilled. Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel....Satans head was tread upon!!! My encouragement to you all is to embrace the grace message of Christs freedom he bought for us by his shed blood and finished work of the cross. We are co-crucified with him, our sin has been washed away. Your sins are not just covered beloved, your sins have been cleansed, they are forever gone. Your life did not just "changed" when you accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord, your life was "exchanged" and Christ gave you his life. He made you a new creation. You now live in union with Christ free from the law of sin and deaths slavery. You have been given the fullness of your inheritance in Christ. He who the Son sets free, is free indeed. Live your life in joy and in the ease and rest that has been provided you. There is now no more striving, no more DOING. It all has already been DONE for you... by Christ. Beloved, this is truly good news! Rejoice for you are righteous, and your steps are ordered by God. Love your neighbor into this truth and good news. Blessings and abounding blessings to you, in Christ :)

Spoken Curses By Les D. Crause

Satan had no license to do anything in the earth until he was given that authority by the one who held it - man. When Adam yielded to Satan through sin, he made available to the enemy, the power and authority that were inherent in him as a son of God and the federal head of the human race. Once he subjected himself to Satan's power, the enemy now had legal right in the earth to attack mankind and all the blessings that God had created for man in the earth. This is when the trouble all began and the earth came under a curse, which we call the Adamic Curse.

Man is still the only creature in the earth who has authority to determine what happens in the earth. And Satan still uses this power to his advantage. Therefore, in order for the enemy to attack and destroy he needs to be licensed specifically by man. That means he must be given permission to attack you before he can do so. This permission is something that you grant him every time you use the power that is inherent in your words. Thus, when you speak negative words against another human being as a result of bitterness and anger, you license the enemy against that person.

You might think that you are justified in your anger, and that you have a right to speak words of destruction to another. But you should realize the consequences of your anger. You might be destroying the life of another, and causing things to go wrong in their life. So why not sit down right now and make up a list of people you are still angry with, and put these matters to sleep at once.

If you think that this is too great a price to pay, I would like to point out to you something that should give you an extra incentive to do this as soon as possible. While you maintain a bitter attitude towards another person, you are actually linking your spirit to theirs, and if that person is under a curse, then you open your own spirit to their curse also, by contamination. Thus, not only do you bring destruction and trouble into their life, but you actually open the door for the same thing to happen in your own. You are giving Satan license through your sin and he is smiling all the way, because he does a double take. He is given license to destroy the person you are angry with, and then comes back through the open door you have given him, to return the curse to you also.

These are some very good reasons for you to get to your knees as quickly as possible and release forgiveness to those who have hurt you isn't it?

Bobby Conner: God's Amazing Grace: Life Without Limits

Bobby ConnerAs Believers, we are instructed to live our daily lives with true goals, aims, and divine purpose. We cannot achieve this unless we walk in God's grace.

What is the key to experiencing God's grace? Embracing our weakness!

God is not looking for strong people to help Him accomplish His work. The truth is that the Lord is looking for people who are weak enough to be used. We must remember that His strength is made perfect in our weakness (see 2 Corinthians 12:9). The key to experiencing supernatural, liberating strength is personal weakness.

Understand that personal weakness does not mean weak character or faulty Biblical knowledge. On the contrary, God is looking for a people who have come to the place where they have lost confidence in their fleshly power to accomplish the work of the Spirit. Only when we embrace the weakness of ourselves apart from Christ can we become strong and "graced" to accomplish things for the true advancing of God's glorious Kingdom.

This truth is clearly displayed in the story found in Psalm 107:23-28, which describes the strong, seaworthy sailors who made their living upon the high seas. One day, however, the Lord raised a stormy wind that blew away every last ounce of their self-confidence. They found themselves at their wits' end and cried out for the Lord's grace and help. Although they were skilled and experienced, the winds and waves of the sea convinced them of their dependence upon God.

Have you encountered the winds of change in your life? If not, you can be confident they are on their way!

Christ Jesus declares: "Without Me you can accomplish nothing!" (John 15:5). This word "nothing" means completely, totally nothing. It truly means less than nothing. Ours is a life of unspeakable joy when we come to the place where we understand that only the work of the Spirit can advance the Kingdom of God.

The Deposit of Grace

In other words, absolutely nothing you have ever done in the past and nothing you could ever accomplish in the future will match the unparalleled joy of letting Jesus live His life through you! God has exactly fitted for each of us a unique walk of grace. As we yield our wills and ways to the Holy Spirit's control, we begin to experience this walk of grace. Through yielding and embracing our personal weakness, we experience the abundant grace that enables us to accomplish all that God has assigned for us to do (see Philippians 4:13).

This deposit of grace is what makes the fire of passion burn so brightly in new Believers. They are overwhelmed with all that God is doing in their lives. Their happiness and excitement is contagious. Their entire life is ablaze with God's love.

As pastor, I was able to teach a new converts class, and my heart was always blessed by the joy of those who have only recently experienced the amazing grace of God. It is this same amazing grace that causes the light of contentment to dance in the eyes of mature Believers who have also learned to abide in God's glorious grace. Our life should testify to the ability of God's awesome grace to use us to accomplish great and mighty things for God's glory.

In short, we were saved by grace and must continue to live by grace: We cannot separate our daily responsibilities and activities from a grace-filled life. We are saved by grace and we are kept by God's magnificent grace!

The Body of Christ seems to understand much concerning the grace of God touching an unbeliever's life: It is only by God's grace that anyone comes to the place of repentance and salvation. However, we lack true understanding concerning God's ability of grace to operate in Believers' daily lives, thereby bringing them into a daily faith walk of radical effectiveness and extreme fruitfulness. Grace does not just change our mind, but learning to embrace our weakness and function through His strength alone has a profound, all-pervasive, transforming effect upon our lives. Grace is a powerful motivator, provoking us to reach higher and accomplish more for Christ and His Kingdom.

Essential Ingredients for Grace

The Apostle Paul stated in 1 Corinthians 15:10, "But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me." Paul declared that the grace of God was not wasted upon his life, but he labored more because of the active grace in his life.

Although we are radically dependent on God's grace in all that we are and all that we do, we are still called to labor abundantly to advance God's Kingdom. This is one of the great paradoxes of the Christian life. It is only by and through grace that we accomplish anything, yet God expects us to labor diligently in His service. Charles Spurgeon once said: "Faith goes up the stairs that love has built and looks out the window which hope has opened."

Just as diligent labor is required to extract all of the grace that God has given us, humility is required to obtain grace. "All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, 'God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble'" (1 Peter 5:5).

Grace is promised to the humble. A great saint of years bygone, made this observation: "The moment humility announces herself she is already on her way out the door." If we would be truly humble, and careful not to usurp God's glory, always giving Him praise for what He is doing, I am sure we would receive more grace.

The Lord warned me once that the highest form of treason was to take the gifts and graces He has given leadership to win and woo the Bride to Himself, and use these gifts and graces to win the Bride to ourselves.

May each heart embrace the promise given in Psalm 84:11: "For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory." In this passage we see the true key to advancing God's Kingdom. It is by God's gift of grace that we are able to behold the glory.

Any good thing ever accomplished by mankind is the direct result of the anointing and impartation of God's grace. May we walk a grace-filled life in order to see the glory of God fill the earth!

Grace is an open door, which bids us to draw nearer to God. In Proverbs 8:17, 21, God declares, "I love those who love Me, and those who seek Me diligently will find Me... That I may cause those who love Me to inherit wealth, that I may fill their treasuries." This is an awesome promise and powerful incentive. We are called to find God. And when we find Him, He indeed blesses us with overflowing treasures.

We must never forget that God has great plans for His people. Hear His promise stated in Jeremiah 29:11: "'For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,' saith the Lord, 'thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.'" It is time to open our hearts wide to God's grace and experience the good plans He has for each of us.

Waiting Upon God

The Lord desires to change us. He seeks to bring us up into His purpose. He waits for us to reach out to Him and knock on the door of His heart. Just as Esther had to approach her husband's throne, we too must prepare ourselves to approach God's throne. He, too, has extended His scepter. Now is the time grace has provided an open door in Heaven. Now it is time to approach the throne of God's grace to find favor and help during these days (see 2 Corinthians 6:2).

In Psalm 46:10 we are instructed to be still and know that God is God. Spending quiet time in the Lord's presence is necessary and carries great importance. It is as we wait upon Him that we are renewed in power and strength (Isaiah 40:28-31).

Each of us must find a special quiet place where we can shut out the cares of this world and get alone with God. Each day, we should come to our "set apart place" to worship, acknowledge His goodness and grace concerning us, and thank the Lord for His guidance and blessing upon our lives.

Great grace is released when we truly enter His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise. Make the time to praise the Lord and to bless His Holy Name!

As we take time to behold Him with an unveiled face, we are changed into ever-increasing glory (see 2 Corinthians 3:18). In this place of quiet worship and prayerful reading of His Holy Word, there is a release of His grace, which produces "Spirit and Life." His Holy Spirit flows into our being to build our faith and provide the "enabling grace" for obedience. It is essential that we set apart time each day to be in His presence.

Attending local church services is vital and not to be neglected, but this is no substitute for our devotional times alone with the Lord of Glory.

Being One with the Lord

Have you noticed in Luke 3:2 that the Word of God came to John the Baptist while he was alone in the wilderness? The programs of the "church" of that day were in full operation, yet John was called apart to be with the Lord alone.

So also today, there are those who are spiritually hungry and seeking something more, who likewise are being called apart to be alone with the Lord for a time of preparation. As a result of his being alone with the Lord, John came into a oneness with the Lord that could not have been accomplished in any other way.

When John was asked who he was, his response testifies to this experience. He said: "I am 'The voice of one crying in the wilderness: "Make straight the way of the Lord," as the prophet Isaiah said'" (John 1:23).

Each one of us should come to the place where we also could make this statement, "I am the voice of one." There is an urgent need for this "voice" to cry out in the midst of the frustrations and perils of our present day (see Isaiah 40:3-5). We live in a world that must have the grace and peace of God.

The need today is not new-fangled methodology, but rather a turning aside to stand in the manifest presence of the Lord, to be prepared as "the voice of one crying in the wilderness" of our day.

May it be stated of us, as it was of the disciples of old, that it is apparent that we have been with Jesus. This and only this will make the changes that must occur if we are to reach this hurting world with the message of God's redemptive, transforming grace. We must be radical reflectors of His life.

I heard about the testimony of a preacher who, toward the end of his life, was asked what he would do if he had his life to live over again. He said he had spent seven years in preparation for 45 years of ministry. Instead, he would spend 45 years in preparation for seven years of ministry. It is very important how we begin, but it is far more important how we end.

The Lord is seeking to bring us to the end of our abilities so we can tap into His ability. This requires that we recognize His presence and turn aside to stand before Him. Only then will we be enabled to become the expression of His voice – a voice crying in the wilderness of our day. The most noble quest of our day is to seek HIS presence. The presence of the Lord will make all the difference! Prepare for His presence!

On this first day Of PURIM...a word in due season from Hollie Moody

Euroclydon - Hollie L. Moody (Sept 7, 2002).

Acts 27:14 ~~ "But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon." As the Lord and I were in the little wooden boat, a storm arose against us from the East. In the natural, there's nothing I love more than a thunderstorm. This storm, however, was extremely unsettling to me. I sensed it was not only a storm in the natural realm, but in the spiritual realm also. I felt there were actual demonic influences working in and through this storm.

"I want My children to know when to sleep through a storm and when to be awake and prayerful through a storm," the Lord said to me. "This storm in particular is a time of high alert. It is not a time for My children to be asleep. Look closely at this storm, child."

As I looked closer into the storm, I began to see the shapes of the demons I had at first only suspected were there. To my surprise, these demons were wearing clothes pertaining to religions and religious denominations from all the nations of the world. Some of these items of clothing appeared to be of the occult.

"This is a perverse spirit of religion," the Lord said to me. "A wave of false religion is being unleashed against your nation and all the nations of the world. At first, it will give the appearance of being Truth, or being new revelations coming from Me.

"There will be a tremendous interest generated into all things spiritual. There will be a revival both of that which is Truth, and that which is false. This will be closely followed by attacks against that which is truly the Truth of My Word.

"In your nation and in many other nations in particular, this wave of false religion will be directed mainly towards younger people. These young people who will be susceptible to this spirit are those who greatly desire a cause to commit themselves unto. If My children do not give them a cause to serve Me, the enemy will."

I then saw a large angel began to pour the bottle out over Israel. I saw as a clear, thick substance came out of the bottle. When the substance struck the ground of Israel, it changed into a thick, black substance.

"What is this substance?" I asked the Lord.

"Oil," the Lord replied. "This oil represents My Spirit being poured out on Israel. It also represents the fact that there is oil in Israel. I tell you this truly, child: there is oil in Israel. It will be discovered as a result of an attack against Israel by one of her enemies. This attack will at first be crippling to Israel, yet she will recover, for I am with her."

By this time, the little wooden boat the Lord and I were in had reached the shore. As we got out of the boat, I saw that the other little boats that had been with us were also pulling up to shore. Many of the people who got out of their boat were weary. They appeared completely demoralized and depressed. Many of them simply collapsed onto the shore after getting out of their boats. I watched as two groups of people began to form.

One group began to walk away from the beach. They were weeping and praying as they went. I saw that this group of people was warriors. The other group of people began to gather around those who were collapsed on the ground. I watched as they began to minister to and comfort each person on the ground. After a time, they encouraged the person they were with to get back to their feet. When the person was finally able to stand to their feet again, the person who had been with them to minister to them, put their arm around that person. I saw that they were actually keeping that person from falling again by having the person lean fully upon them.

"There is a need right now," the Lord explained to me, "for many of My children to be comforted and encouraged. They are weary and frightened by many of the things happening around them and to them. They have been under severe and constant attacks and are in danger of succumbing to those attacks. I need many of My children to gather around these weary ones and sustain them with their prayers and presence. This is a time to comfort those who are in mourning.

.... Once more, I warn My children to watch and pray. Watch and pray."

When Holy Discontent becomes Holy Digust

I have been so disturbed by some things out of order in the Body of Christ recently. When this happens the first thing I do is check my own heart. The second thing I do is ask myself, and ask the Lord if this is HIM?

Sometimes when I am discontented with the state of the Body of Christ it's a motivation to act. To deal with the situation. To speak into it. To come along side and cajole back to the narrow path.

When I become disgusted, because the test of the prophetic is Love (1 Corinthians 13) I have to back away. Selah. Rest. Find the secret place and get well.

I don't know how others stand it. How leaders and ministers I admire are able to do it. How they see what I see (I know they do) and still stand without rage.

Right now there are some things going on that frankly are nauseating. I won't list them. I will say that I don't think this is just me. This is a manifestation of the Spirit of God in me.

Still in all, I know well the voice of God as he spoke to the People of Israel in Chapter 36 of Ezekiel. You have to read the whole thing to get the context. The issue is God is a good father.
He doesn't turn his backs on his people. He doesn't do things for them because they deserve it.

If you had a son who was rebellious, sloppy, out of order, that many would despise, but he is YOUR SON, he carries YOUR NAME, then you would do all you could to see to it that he represents your namesake. You would do things so that he would not degrade your name.

Father God is JUST LIKE THAT:
Ezekiel 36:22-23
22 “Therefore say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. 23 I will show the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD, declares the Sovereign LORD, when I am proved holy through you before their eyes.

He will do what he does for his Body not because they deserve it, but because they carry his name. I am reminded of that, and as I wrestle with the profaning of God's name by those ho claim to be his, I am brought back to this truth: God will bless who he chooses to bless and he will curse those he chooses to curse. It's not about us, or what we do or do not deserve. It's all about HIM and his HOLY name.

Let's keep it that way and cut out the foolishness.

The Deception of the Very Elect has begun in full force

I awoke this morning and clearly heard:

That which I warned of has now manifest in the world. The elect, those who call My name, those who are ministers and shepherds are being shepherded by another voice. Many never knew My voice. They never knew the voice of the Shepherd. Many who once did have now allowed the voices that tickle their itching ears to silence My true voice. They are deceived into following another. This satisfies motivations of their flesh, motivations of their pride, motivations of their fear of man. They are becoming unknown to Me. There is a great divide occurring between in those who call themselves Christian and those who are truly Sons and Daughters. It will be a time of tearing. A time of separation. Chaff and tares will look much like wheat. Only the wind of My spirit will separate the impure from pure. The judgement I must bring will not be just for their own error, but multiplied for the error they impose as they lead others astray. These false shepherds have been falsely led and now lead others falsely. They no longer will bear sound doctrine. They have believed a lie. For this reason I will shame them. I will remove them. Some will come to their senses and ask how did this happen as they are humiliated? They have become blinded to the difference between righteousness and unrighteousness. They have become among those who call good evil and evil good. They have relied on their reason and intellect to allow the world to crush them into it's mold. They have become useless to ME and now I will expose and dispose of them. They are no longer profitable.

This is a much harder word than I usually bring, but I know it to be true. I live in terror that I might be weighed and found wanting. The judgement of God is about to act against those who are creating deception. Be not deceived. God is not mocked. The stench of our sin has risen up before him and cries out against us all.

Reality - Depends from WHICH SIDE you are Seeing

As I hear from the throne, I am impressed with one truth: HE sees things very differently from you or me:

  • We see in 3 dimensions.. HE sees in Multiple Dimensions.
  • We see what is happening NOW.... He sees the beginning from the end
  • We see our current circumstance and evaluate Good or Bad from that... HE sees only GOOD for us
  • We see failure and victory as opposites....HE takes all events, failure or victory and makes them for good.
  • We see People as lovable or unlovable...HE sees all creatures in Love...even the Devil, Hitler, Dahmer. All those in hell. But HE loves them enough NOT to violate their free will at choosing to be there.
  • We see circumstance, news, events and it causes concern, even fear...... HE fears nothing..NEVER
  • We tremble at the storms and difficulty all around us....HE is waiting for US to Speak Out and take dominion over the storm...JUST LIKE JESUS. The storm may rage, it may destroy, it may kill, but it can not be victorious.

When a prophetic utterance comes and causes you to stumble wondering "How can he or she say that?". It's because for a brief moment we were allowed in the spirit to see things as GOD see them. As God sees you and his plan for you. As God sees your health, your marriage, your business, your life, your ministry, your children.

HE wants you to LIVE on the tightrope of his word. Every word that proceeds to be the narrow path (nothing is much narrower than a tightrope) on which you walk. You need light not to fall. That's why the word of God is so critical. A light to your path, (tightrope).

Many have great light but try to use it to walk a very wide way. God is calling you to the narrow way. When you have his sure word on this, you will WALK LIKE it was the wide way.

Kim Clement: "From the Small is Going to Come Something Massive"

Kim Clement"Israel, My Light Is Upon You!"

February 12, 2012 – From The Den:

"Israel! Israel! My light is upon you! Israel! My light is upon you now – now! There is a stench that has come from the nations who would stand and veto so that children can continue to be killed. Their blood is coming before Me," says the Lord. "Therefore, there shall be weeping in Russia. There will be weeping. For no matter what you do," says the Lord, "I will surround Israel, and it shall flourish and flourish and flourish. Truly a door has opened, as she has sung."

"From the Small is Going to Come Something Massive"

February 14, 2012 - From The Matrix:

But this is what the Lord said to me about America. He said to me, "Small, small, small, small." So I said, "OK Lord, what are You saying?" This was this morning. So He said, "It's all going to happen – from the small is going to come something massive." He said, "The small will bring economic recovery to the United States and to the world, that's where it'll happen." So I said, "Small what?" He said, "Let's speak about small churches." He said, "There's going to be hundreds of thousands of small churches throughout the United States of America."

As I've said before, there are going to be neighborhoods, there will be churches that won't be too structured to start with and, of course, the religious are going to condemn them and say there are no elders and there are no deacons. But God's just going to move like this for a while and just erupt all over – small churches. Then He said to me what's going to happen in America are small businesses. Small businesses are going to bring about the recovery. And He was going on about the small, small.

He said, "Kim, think about My nature, what I did. I took from dust and made something huge; I made a living being." He said, "It's always been – I took from out of a small town; I brought Jesus of Nazareth." It's always been out of the small. When Gideon, when He approached Gideon, Gideon was just a nobody, and God said to him, "You're a great warrior." So He said, "Please, please note this because it's not going to be the big, it's not going to be the outrageous; it's going to be all out of the small."

I don't know how else to say it because I only heard it this morning, but I want you to look that up. I don't know where to find it, but you're going to see this happening everywhere. I'm not saying big churches are wrong or mega-churches are wrong. It's going to be the small and they're going to spread like wildfire and young people in their 20s are going to be preaching and their 30s.

This is going to change; it's going to completely change, where the sower will overtake the reaper. It's going to be where young people are so energized and they're going to become the new preachers. The Warriors of the New Millennium that I dreamed about in 1995 and had my visions, this is that day; this is that day. And I want you to know, don't despise the day of small beginnings. It was a little cloud the size of a man's hand that brought about one of the biggest breakthroughs in Israel and the rain poured out and God put an end to the famine and put an end to the drought.


February is the month for the bashing of the heads together. In fact, another thing I heard this morning was Syriran – Syriran – Iran and Syria, one word. The region, the borders will be completely destroyed and Syriran – Syr-iran – it's two names becoming one. Write that down as well because once that happens and the toppling of that power, Christ is going to come in there like a roaring lion.

Jeffrey Stewart
EVERYTHING you see in Acts, which is the FORMER HOUSE, take it and vastly multiply it to know what you will see in this season, for we are the LATTER HOUSE. One building shook with His Wind in Acts, WHOLE CITIES will be shaken by His Wind in what He does in this season. ONE PERSON'S face, Stephen, shown with His Glory in Acts, MILLIONS OF FACES will shine with His Glory in this Season. Whatever you see in Acts, MULTIPLY IT BY A VAST AMOUNT, and you will have some idea of what occurs this season.

Chuck D. Pierce: "Roll Into Your Future and Ask for Wisdom"

"Ask, Ask, and Watch Wisdom Come Down"

I am so grateful for how the Lord is leading us in our Corporate Prayer Gatherings during the Morning Watch. On last Wednesday morning the Lord gave us an incredible picture of how He desires to "roll" us into our future. Portions of the prophetic revelation released from that time are below:

"I begin you one way, but I end you another way. I begin you on a foundation and I cause your covering to be placed in a new way. Check your foundation and then watch your covering form. As I rebuild your foundation, and as I align it with the Head, with the covering that I am opening over you, you will reach a place of critical mass, a place of great momentum. Guard your momentum and move with Me.

"The cover that I am putting over you is woven together; it is manifold, and it is filled with My wisdom. Ask for this wisdom to penetrate you for this hour; ask and you will be filled in a new way. There will not be a thing that I cannot reveal to you. Ask, ask, and watch wisdom come down. For I am Jehovah Jireh, and I will come down and show you provision that you've not seen. I am Jehovah Jireh and I will come down and cover you, and the provision you've been looking for, I will reveal to you.

"So come and sacrifice, and lay your vision from last season before Me. Lay down that which you have counted on, place it on My altar, and watch Me come down and reveal new provision and new sound, and reveal that which was hidden in past seasons to you. You will cause the top of that which you are standing on to be formed, and a covering to form over you. I will cover you with the shadow of My wing. I am putting together that which will mantle you in days ahead.

"Bring your vision and submit it, the vision of what you have been shown. Submit vision to Me, and watch provision come down in a new way. Even during this watch, you have been forming a portal that is now beginning to open above you, and the covering you've longed for is now coming down. You have felt many times that you were uncovered, and you have felt abandoned and felt like you were the only one standing. But because you have come during this watch, I will cover you in a new way.

"Ho, come to the waters, come to the waters and drink. For you've been thinking, 'I could find a way to receive grace.' But I say, 'grace is waiting on you.' Come and eat of that which I have been holding back, and I am now preparing a table with a dish which you have never eaten before. So come now, and watch Me feed you in a way you've not been fed. Watch Me give you revelation you've never eaten of. For you've seen things through one dimension and one portal, but now you will taste and see that I am good. Ho, come and drink; ho, come and eat. Come and enter in in a way with Me, and sup with Me in a way that you've not known Me.

The Great Covering

"I am covering you in a way that you will not be under the structure from the last seven years that you've been under. But you will be wearing a garment that will extend you into the next seven years."

"The top is greater. The greater covering is coming over you today. You're being covered in a new way. You're clearing out. Even that which you've learned in the last seven years will now begin to explode into new dimensions of wisdom, and new dimensions of insights. You will teach others in simple ways. What you have gained knowledge of, you'll be able to multiply in teaching others. One word will not only fell the enemy, but one word will multiply in My people."

"For just as with Peter, the foundation you were standing on would have caused you to sink down under. But now I am lifting you up, and I am pulling you up, and I am taking you across into a new place. And in this new place, there is an opening and an access for you that will multiply simple nuggets that are within you. They will expand, and they will begin to open up in new ways. And one thing you have gathered in the past season will now become a hundred in this season."

"And even the way you've been standing, I'm changing your stance today. For you've been standing in one way, but now I'm causing you to rise up. And as I cover you, I will also come beneath you. I will be the wind that causes you to rise up above circumstances. I will be the rock that you stand on. I will not only be the cliff that you hide in, but I will cause you to soar in new ways."

Roll Forward

Mark Fox shared that as he was coming to the meeting he said, "Lord, what word would you have?" The Lord gave him one word: "wagon." He saw the supply wagon coming forth.

John Dickson shared about how his grandfather was a wheel-wright, and how he still had the metal tool his grandfather used to measure the outside of the wheel rim. John heard the Lord say, "I am fitting you with a steel rim. You are My pioneers and as you go forth, that rim will not be destroyed by the rocks and the ruts you are going through. But you will have a steel rim, and it will take you to the place I am sending you."

There have been a lot of curious things (the wheel traveler) we've had that we didn't know what to do with, we didn't know how it fit, but the Lord says, "In this season it's like a timing thing. The seeds that are timed for this season are going to break forth and come forth. And the parts that have been for a season, that you've been carrying around and not knowing what to do with, you will find you are sent-in with that part in this season."

That shows how the Lord is measuring how we roll forward. He is measuring how we roll forward into the future. We can thank Him that we are being measured so we can roll over the ruts, and roll over the offenses. We are being measured in a new way so that we will keep rolling this season. The Lord is saying, "Roll your cares on Me, that I might roll you and measure you in a way that you will be able to move forward with Me in this day."

Even as Lisa Lyons also had a wheel-wright in her vehicle, the Lord is saying, "Many of you do not even know what it is that you have that I will require at a specific time." But when you hear the Lord say, "Whom shall I send?", you simply say, "Lord, send me!" See this: what you need is already there! Even things that we wouldn't have even known how they would be used, the Lord says, "They're already there. That's what I'm opening over you; you can see things that have always been there, waiting for you to see."
