Presuming on God

The Bible has episodes where people presumed on God.

  • Jesse Presumed that David couldn't be anointed King
  • Aaron presumed that his sons would be his successors and walk in the integrity of the office
  • Eli thought his sons would be natural inheritors of his office and carry it out well
  • Absolum presumed that he would be King, that it was his right
  • Samuel assumed that his anointing as a prophet washed over to his role as a father
  • Abraham assumed that Ismael would be a son of promise
  • Esau assumed that as first born he would be the natural heir

I'm sure if I thought about it a bit more, I could come up with several other examples. People assume that their desires are God's desires. HE does say He will give us the desires of our hearts, that would be reasonable if we consider that HE places them there in the first place.

God has said that He will bless who he chooses to bless. That our assumptions on who is going to carry the mantle of the anointing of one generation into the next is up to him and his purposes.

There is no real sense that this can or will be the case if we look at history.

Even if we look at recent history, Crystal Cathedral as a poster church, succession in hands of a board and of man is a failed strategy.

God says he puts one up and another down.

I get very nervous when a leader announces that his or her son, daughter, nephew or whomever is going to take over his or her ministry. Now if it's a nominal ministry, that's no problem. There really is nothing going on anyway, so it's a moot point. It's when the power of GOD is resident in the chosen vessel that is about to step aside, what makes US think we can choose FOR God. That isn't transferable by the choice of a human. That would be presuming on God. He MAY honor it...but most of the time not.

We must be careful in our presuming on God. The mantle must go to the one capable of wearing it, not as a hand me down, as a double Elisha.

When it comes to who he will or will not anoint, who he will place in authority or an office, He seems to be pretty proprietary about all that. HE wants to make that decision.

Fore-Runner: Heart of the Explorer by David L. Smith

History repeats itself.

On the edge of civilization, there have always been those who ventured out beyond the "zone" of the safe.

In all groups of people, there are those who stay. In every city, in every civilization, in all of history - most have stayed where they LIVE, in their heart, mind, and lives.

This is as it should be. This is the foundation. This is the core.

Yet, there have always been those on "the edge". Some good. Some bad. Many in the midst.

Within that small slice of a civilization's population - there are those that venture out.

There are those who have the heart of the explorer.

Many sit in the safety & comfort & ease of their home and talk about going "out there". Many live their adventures through the lives of others who have gone before. Many stay - yet inspire those who GO.

We are on the verge of a new world.

We are on the verge of a new civilization unlike ANY that have been before.

We - as a people - are on the edge of eternity. Ahead, there beckons a new world. A new heaven. A new civilization that will never end.

Ahead, there lies the Kingdom of our God that has foundations that will never die, never crumble, and never fade away. Ahead, lies a city whose maker and builder is God.

And - as in all history - there are the fore-runners. Those who go before.

There are the Abrahams - and the Ishmaels. There are the Shems. The Japhets. The Hams. And the Noahs who stay behind.

Those who go beyond are the seekers, the explorers, the sailors of the seas. The Mountain men. The Conquerers. There are those that go out for reasons right and for reasons wrong.

We are on the verge of a New World.

Choose you the way that you will go.

It all comes down to CHOICE.

We all have Different functions. Different callings. Different destinies. Different lives.

There are those that God has called for purpose. And there are those that will never answer that call. There are those that give themselves the title. But they are not. They say, I am an explorer! A fore-runner! A prophet! A Leader! A mountain man or a captain of a starship!

Some are. Some are not.

Some say that they "boldly go where none have gone before" - but never do.

Some do.

We are on the verge of eternity.

will you FLY?

Rick Joyner: The Gift of a Word of Knowledge: Be Obedient

Rick JoynerI was involved in a prophetic experience that I think has some great lessons. It happened when I was flying our ministry plane to Nashville with some of our musicians to do some recording. After taxiing to the General Aviation ramp, a line woman directed us to a parking spot. After we deplaned, the wife of one of our musicians said to the line woman as she walked past her, "You get along with animals better than you do people – you should have been a vet." The line woman looked stunned, and I couldn't help wondering if this had insulted her.

Our team left with their ride, which had been waiting to take them to the recording studio. Before I left, I gave my fuel order at the service desk when the line woman came in and blurted out, "Was that woman with you a psychic?" I said, "No, but why do you ask?" She told me that when she was parking our plane she was thinking about how she gets along better with animals than she does people and that she should have become a vet. That's when the musician's wife spoke to her.

It was just a small terminal, and this conversation was so loud that everyone in the terminal looked intently at us. I explained how this lady was a Christian, and how Christ loves all people and has a plan for their lives, and sometimes He gives His servants information like this about them to confirm His will for their life. The line woman was deeply moved and resolved to take seriously that she was "called" to be a vet and to pursue it.

Then the other employees and passengers in the terminal started asking if this woman was coming back, and could they get a message like this? This led to a lot of ministry in the terminal over the next few months as we went back and forth for this recording. At that time, we had not set up prophetic ministry teams, but if we had, I would have sent a team over to park in that terminal for as long as there was an opening for ministry. This helped us see the need for this, and now we can be more responsive.

The Holy Spirit Is the "Helper," Not the "Doer"

Almost every such opening that has led to a lot of fruit was the result of someone just stepping out and taking initiative. We must keep in mind that the Holy Spirit is the "Helper," not the "Doer." He will not do anything without us, and we should not want to do anything without Him. Faith is basically the willingness to take initiative even when you may not know the exact outcome. This is why true faith is not faith in an outcome, but in the Person we put our trust in. We must seek to simply do the will of the Lord, and not just seek results, because results can be very different than we're expecting. The same miracle that has a great impact in one place may not have any in another place, just as we see in the Lord's own ministry.

You may be thinking that you would love to be able to hear that clearly from the Lord and touch other people like this young lady did. The truth is you can, and you possibly already do but just don't realize it. We get impressions from the Lord but think they are our own imagination, or something else, and don't act on them. Many who come to our Prophetic Equipping Conferences who leave hearing from the Lord realize they have been hearing from Him for a long time but did not recognize Him. We can't give people prophetic gifts, but we can help them recognize and stir up the gifts that they've been given. Every Christian has the ability to know the voice of the Lord.

Stirring a city with a word of knowledge like Jesus did through the woman at the well, or like Philip the evangelist in Acts 8, would be wonderful. It is obvious that Philip was using the gift of a word of knowledge because we're told in Acts 8 that the people gave attention to him because of the miracles that they "heard and saw."

Then Philip was commanded by the Spirit to leave such a great revival and go into the desert to share the Gospel with just one man – the Ethiopian eunuch. That an evangelist, who all seem to thrive on crowds, would be this obedient is almost as much of a miracle as him being translated afterward. However, hundreds of years later when explorers first entered Ethiopia they were astonished to find that the Christian faith had preceded them. We won't know until eternity how many were led to salvation by Philip's obedience and neither could Philip.

The point is that we cannot judge the fruit here – we must just focus on obedience to the Holy Spirit. A single word of knowledge might stir a city, a general aviation terminal, or just one person, and the one person could bring more fruit than the others combined. Be obedient.

Confession of an Addict - ME

I am compelled to confess. I am an addict. I have always had an addictive personality. In my past I have been addicted to substances. There are familiar patterns to my addictions.

  • I HAVE to have it...
  • I will go to great lengths to get it
  • I will shun places where my addition isn't going to be filed
  • I find myself hanging around with like addicts
  • I know there have been people thru-out history who have been addicted to this
  • This addiction is NOT legal in many places
  • Many people discount me for being an addict
  • Sometimes when I am really high I end up acting and speaking such that people think I am out of my mind, babbling they think
  • I find myself in places not all that respectable for my addiction
  • Some people try to feed me phony substance and my addiction is unsatisfied
  • Addiction isn't cheap, it will cost me everything, I am sure I will die addicted
  • Fellow addicts understand my addiction, the un-addicted don't get it
  • Many addicts are in prisons
  • I am a pusher, I am trying to hook others on this
  • People who are not addicted think I am out of my mind, unrealistic, believing myths
  • About the time I think I have enough, I need more. MORE is the eternal quest
  • If I go somewhere to get a fix and I am stood up, that place will lose me
  • The weak stuff is never satisfying. It must be the real thing
  • IF I get some bad stuff it's actually sickening
  • If I can't get some, I go thru withdrawal symptoms
  • There is no substitute... there is no imitation....
  • Only the real thing will do
You have my confession.

I guessing you have already figured this out.

  • I am addicted to the Presence of God
  • I am hooked on the Glory
  • I am constantly looking to find new levels of revelation, more Lord
  • I need a higher high in worship
  • I love those who love the same addiction, who get it
  • I am ready to lay down my life for my addiction, I already have
  • Too many phony baloney plastic banana preachers programs try to feed me fake stuff
  • When the goodness of God comes over me, There's nothing like it
  • I have traveled great distances to find a higher level
  • This is too good to keep to myself and that is a problem, many in government would like to silence me so others won't come into this
  • When the anointing of God comes over me, when the revelation comes, when I am caught up in worship I sometimes feel like I might float around the room, or be raptured out
  • It's unrealistic for me to expect any less than the miraculous

IF you are not yet an addict, I offer you this free of charge.

More Lord, MORE!

A call on their life deeper than their intellect

Many who,now consider being a Christian unthinkable, have a call on their life that's much deeper than their intellect--- They wait for an awakening....BY DENNIS PEACOCK via Blessed Economist

Every generation has a destiny. The sleeping tiger has sensed within itself a calling to a purpose, which will cut across the momentum of history. If God will give us the wisdom to awaken that desire with the message of the gospel of the kingdom of God, we can make a significant difference in the preparation for the return of Jesus. I believe there are many who, right now, consider being a Christian unthinkable, who have a call on their life that's much deeper than their intellect. Once they have heard that call, they will find themselves going places and doing things they never would have imagined-and with the most unlikely people! Without knowing it, that sleeping tiger is ready to be awakened to that call already burning in their hungry hearts—the prophetic call of the kingdom of God.

Blessed Economist: Comatose Tiger

John Mark and Sandy Pool: I Am the Only Way, Truth & Life

Jesus was our perfect Lamb that was slain before the foundations of this earth.
Many people in the world and even religions fall into the deceptive trap of the enemy and believe lies that we have many "alternatives" to Heaven, eternal life and God. However, we must always return those misguided people to the Word of God which is the truth offering and total freedom from the enemy's lies.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.

Actually, Jesus was the Way, the Truth and the Life before the earth was made, and He came to be our substitution for all sins and deceptions that satan used as an attempt to gain control.

Romans 7:6 But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit.

Unconditional Love

We do not have conditions to come to Jesus. That is what is meant by "Unconditional Love!" God has us respond to His total fulfillment of the law that put Jesus Christ upon the Cross of Calvary as our "condition of surrender". God has always had us right in the middle of His plan. God is a Giver, and when satan believed he had craftily aborted God's Kingdom plan, here comes Jesus Christ, right out of Heaven, to put an end to all the religious attempts to usurp God's Master Plan!

John 3:16-18 This is how much God loved the world: He gave His Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; and by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life... Anyone who trusts in Him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him. (The Message Bible)

Once we truly have our hearts transformed, then we can no longer be exploited by the religions who want law over love, performance over peace, and regulations instead of relationship. No other religion, foreign god, or philosophical belief can even come close to the wonderful love of God through Jesus Christ.

So, when Jesus declared to the religious leaders and zealots through John 14:6-7, He said it more like this: Jesus said, "I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life. No one gets to the Father apart from Me. If you really knew Me, you would know My Father as well. From now on, you do know Him. You've even seen Him!"

There Is Only One Way...

Many have come to offer other ways to the Father but, much like the very ones Jesus came to rescue, are lost in satan's tricks that makes them look for love in all the wrong places. We have the seal of God, Jesus Christ, who is now a risen Savior and is forever making intercession for us on earth to understand our Father's plan. Jesus was not sent in vain! The message written by Apostle Paul encourages us to only follow the Master's Plan of redemption through the completed work at the Cross of Calvary.

Acts 4:12 Salvation comes no other way; no other name has been or will be given to us by which we can be saved, only this One.

Jesus also gives us revelation of Heaven's DNA in John chapter 9. Jesus spit on the dirt that God and He had already made and put that dirt and saliva from God into the eyes of the man born blind, revealing the DNA of the Father's plan. The Father's DNA gives sight to the blind (those blinded by the deceptions of the enemy) and liberates the ones bound to sin setting the captives free!

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you…

God knew us and what He was doing by making us look like Himself! He certainly knows those whom He has called by His Holy Spirit to receive Jesus and portrays the very "spitting image of God through our Savior and Brother, Jesus Christ." Jesus said His own will know and follow only the Father's voice.

John 10:1-5 Let Me set this before you as plainly as I can. If a person climbs over or through the fence of a sheep pen instead of going through the gate, you know he's up to no good – a sheep rustler! The shepherd walks right up to the gate. The gatekeeper opens the gate to him and the sheep recognize his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he gets them all out, he leads them and they follow because they are familiar with his voice. They won't follow a stranger's voice but will scatter because they aren't used to the sound of it.

Relationship over religion is essential to restore sight to the blind and those that have been caught by the deception that there are other ways to God besides Jesus Christ! Remember that we had a relationship with our Father before sin entered into mankind. This intimate relationship with God is the purpose for being restored and not only "saved" from sin. We then desire to become overwhelmed by His loving presence that removes "religious cataracts of spiritually blinded eyes!"

1 Timothy 2:4-6 He wants not only us but everyone saved, you know, everyone to get to know the truth we've learned: that there's one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us—Jesus, who offered Himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free… (The Message Bible)

There is Only One Way Truth and Life – Jesus Christ!

On confusion regarding the difference between judging and discerning:: Shirley Carter

God give great discernment to His Servants, the prophets, even regarding the secret intents into the hearts of men. He also gives them authority to prophetically announce His judgments.

God's judgments are righteous, full of Mercy, wrapped in great love for those He judges and those He protects from the ones He judges. I'm afraid a Body who hasn't fully grasped this reality is ripe for great spiritual deception...It is His desire to have a spiritually alert, pure, and holy Bride ready for His Imminent Return. There is an acceleration in the Spirit that those behind the Veil have the privilege to see and mandate to proclaim - The Heart Of The Father...

God is sending prophets all over the world with the message of repentance to nations buried in purposeful sin. He reveals specific sins and warns of catastrophes unless they turn. These catastrophes occur as God has spoken. Should people rise up against these prophets, they will find themselves contending with God Himself! Time is over! The lack of the fear of God leads to lawlessness and God is awakening His People to Prepare The Way For The Coming of The Lord who desires none perish or be left behind!

Its Time for Another Mount Carmel Confrontation

The pattern is in 1 Kings 18:1-46

We are there again.

Three years of very difficult times. Economic drought. Government unable to do anything about it. Persecution. Corruption. False Religion. Worship of BAAL (prosperity) along with a nominal worship of the Living God.

The priests of BAAL have once again erected an altar on a high place. It's an abomination. It's dependance on other than the Living God. It's a false religion. Some is Government. Some is business. Some is simply people's willingness to be duped.

This has placed even serious Christians in a time of drought. They are starving, spiritually and physically.

Today, modern Elijahs are once again saying, it can rain again. We don't have to live like this.

The modern priests of BAAL will not go peaceably. The modern Jezebels and Ahabs are unwilling to be displaced without a struggle.

They have used lies and deception too long in order to remain on the throne of your life.

It's time for a confrontation that will result in the destruction of the Altars, in the consumption of our offering and in the elimination of all the priests.

Don't expect to be welcomed. They will say to you, "Is that YOU you troubler of Israel?" Israel in this case is the local church in which the BAAL altar is high. They will not be happy to see you.

That is a really hard truth, most of the high places, most of the Altars to BAAL are in the Churches of our city, our state, our nation.

They believe they are serving God, but they have a full altar to Baal in place.

This is what the worship of BAAL looked like in the looks a lot like the BAAL worship in our churches today.

It's time for the Altars of BAAL to come down...first in our churches. We will have to call down the fire of GOD to consume the whole thing and let none of the priests survive the FIRE to come. Let them repent and come back to the true and living GOD.

Victoria Boyson: A Glimpse of Heaven

Your heavenly Father is yearning to give you insight into what He has prepared for you, showing you more of the delights of your eternal life with Him in His home. Drawing you nearer to the reality of who you really are in Him.

My Journey

The Lord told me He had something He wanted to show me – I took His hand and suddenly I was in the spirit atop a great hill in Heaven. He was happy to be able show me His favored landscape and the hills of His home. It was all so breathtaking. You could stand in one spot and look for miles in all directions, enjoying the beautiful hills. He was pleased with my delight.

Then, we walked down the hill toward a grove of large trees. To my surprise, He showed me a tunnel formed by the trees that had grown there. They had grown intertwining together to form a tunnel that almost blocked out the light. It seemed endless and although we did not walk the distance of it, He told me it went all the way to the other side of the valley we were in.

As we exited the tunnel, I saw a small pond near the grove of trees. I asked the Lord if we could stop and look at the fish – there were very large gold fish that were absolutely beautiful. I asked if I could hold one and as He agreed, a large fish came up to where I stood at the edge and stared up at me as if it were offering itself to me like a kitten or dog wanting to be held. Picking it up, I pet its golden scales as it looked up at me.

The Lord was happy I enjoyed it so much and pointed out a turtle nearby. He scooped it up and handed it to me when I returned the fish. I held it and turned it over to touch its very smooth belly. Neither the turtle nor the fish were the least bit afraid of me and seemed to enjoy being held and petted. The animals seemed to accept me without fear or hesitation, as if their purpose, even their joy, was to be enjoyed.

While exploring the pond and all its wildlife, it suddenly started to rain. I knew that on Earth we needed rain, but wondered why it would need to rain in Heaven, so I asked Him.

He said, "We just like it because it's fun." Isn't that great?

What A Surprise

We walked around the base of a ravine and Jesus seemed excited to reveal a surprise He had in store for me. As we rounded the corner of the ravine, He smiled and said, "Look at that!" He was pointing to what seemed to be a brand new Model T Ford. It was a stunning convertible in burgundy-red with leather seats and wooden accents as new as if it were just made yesterday.

I was delighted and surprised and said, "You have cars in Heaven? Why, when you can transport by thought or desire?"

He smiled at me with His beautiful broad smile and said, "I just like it!"

He then took me for a ride and I had anticipated a drive through the beautiful landscapes of Heaven with my dearest Lord. But suddenly, He took off and we were flying in the air. We passed right over beautiful vibrant people and, as we flew over them, I waved at them and they waved and yelled back at me, "Hello, Victoria!"

As we flew, He told me to look in the back seat. When I turned to look, I saw a pile of huge opulent pearls about an inch in diameter. I picked up the biggest handful I could gather and just held them in my hands. They were so luminous and beautiful. He told me I could have as many as I liked.

Again, He told me to look in the back seat, but when I looked this time I saw the sweetest little kitten – so darling with little white feet. I asked Him, "What do you call it?"

"Socks" He said.

I snuggled with the kitten up to my face and I asked if I could have it and he laughed and said, "Well... you can hold it."

It was interesting to me that without my even asking, He gave me as many pearls as I wanted, but would not let me keep His kitten, He valued it so much.

We flew over several more canyons and beautiful ravines and saw wonderful places for countless adventures (you could not possibly get bored there). We saw people down in the ravines enjoying the landscape of Heaven. Again, they gave me a hearty wave and greeted me as if they knew me and loved me. Their greeting flooded my heart with such overwhelming acceptance – a very powerful acceptance that seemed to penetrate my spirit and affect my physical body.

He showed me the ocean and I saw all the people enjoying what seemed to me to be every kind of boat ever made. The vessels were all from different times in history, yet they all appeared to be brand new.

A Special Place

We ended our flight and I thought our visit was ending, but He wanted to show me one more place – a special place. We had to be very quiet as we climbed to the top of a hill where we could look down on a small creek running between the two smaller hills.

It was very beautiful, but I didn't understand why it was special. We sat upon the hill just out of sight. As the Lord sat beside me, we enjoyed watching children playing in the creek. It was then He told me that the young lady playing there was my sister.

Growing up, I had wanted a sister so bad that my mother and I would pretend that the baby she had miscarried before I was born was my sister. She even told me I could name her, so I named her Valerie. And here right before me, was that girl. She was beautiful. I was simply overwhelmed. I wanted to cry.

I saw a woman with her I knew was my mother, who had died in a car accident in 1984 with my younger brother. My emotions were tumbling together rolling on top of each other – I wasn't sure what to feel.

Valerie threw water at my mother and was playfully splashing her. Speaking of Valerie I said, "She's really ornery, isn't she?" "Yes, she is!" He said with obvious pride, "Yes, she's always been here. She's never known anything but freedom."

He smiled as my mom started to chase after my sister, but Valerie remained out of her reach and they laughed together. I thought of how much joy and acceptance they were now experiencing together. For them, there was no more rejection – just the most thorough acceptance you're able to imagine.

It was this tremendous feeling of acceptance which seemed to overwhelm me. It was evident even in the animals, who had no fear. The people in Heaven celebrated one another and each trusted in the knowledge they were not just tolerated, but were able to truly enjoy one another. Jesus was proud of this most of all – proud to show me the greatest treasure of His Kingdom – love. And what a glorious treasure it is!

When I emerged from the encounter with Him, bathed in the wondrous feeling of the acceptance I'd experienced there, I immediately called all my family to tell them of what I'd experienced. They too felt the love and acceptance that permeated Heaven.

Truly, the Lord is proud of His home and of the joy of every living creature there. He also delights in the joy you experience here on Earth. Satan is the enemy of this joy, but our adversary is not a match for the joy of the Lord because he cannot understand it. And Beloved, God wants us to experience this tremendous joy on Earth! It is the power of the Kingdom for which we battle – to live each day in His love – to live each day in His acceptance. That is truly righteous living!

God wants us to contemplate our life with Him. It is not the "after-life" as so many on Earth believe. No, it is REAL LIFE! And it begins the moment you let Him in to your life!

Rob DeLuca: God Will Defend America - A New Move is Coming!

One Nation Under God

I see blessing coming to America again. I see containers of gold coming, I see them coming on ships representing that God is going to bless America. Because we have sown as a nation, we shall reap a harvest as a nation. We have sown finances into mission fields, we have sown missionaries into the mission field and we have sown much into the poor of the world and we shall reap.

We call forth the harvest, which will break the recession and break the power of the spirit that has tried to stop us from being blessed, in Jesus name! We prophesy, One Nation Under God! In God we trust and we shall be a blessed nation once again!

The Florida Harvest

I see something taking place once again in the state of Florida. Even as it has been known for the blessing of orange groves and crops, it shall be known as a land of spiritual harvest. Florida shall bring in a great harvest! Florida, the harvest is yours! This harvest is so great that it will bring a change to the neighboring states. Florida will cause a change to come forth in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and the Carolinas. I see fire coming up sweeping over the Florida state line.

The Strong Arm Of Texas

I see a strong arm coming out of the ground of Texas! Great strength will come from Texas! Men will gather and speak as one voice with great unity. This strong arm of unity will bring a great anointing and stability to this nation! God is going to use Texas in a powerful way to bring change to America.

New York Will Be Healed

No longer will you weep New York, for I see God is sending angels to you. I see men that carry the Shepherd's heart being sent to New York to start healing churches. This word will confirm to many who know they have been called to New York! You have been waiting, even since 9/11, and God is sending you now, arise, go plant and heal New York!


I see a pipeline coming through the state of California beginning in the north by Eureka, the State Line. It's coming down through Alaska, Canada, Washington and Oregon, all the way through the Golden State. This is a pipeline of oil coming through the State of California – no longer shall it only be in the north; I see it going all the way down through the central and southern parts of California. This pipeline is like what was prophesied in the Word about the plumb line coming down from the Heavens. I see this main pipeline being poured into other pipelines that go North, South, East and West. The pipeline follows the fault line.

I see a discovery is going to take place in California! While I was looking at the oil and the pipeline, I saw a hole in the ground with a massive blue flame coming out of it and this hole was right between Northern and Central California. The Lord is showing me that natural gas is in the land and it is going to bring blessing to California! Both natural and spiritual blessings are going to come to California and the natural discovery will be a prophetic sign of what God is about to do in the spirit. The fire will come out of the Californian state!

I also see big waves coming once again to California! They are hitting Northern California, up in the San Francisco and Santa Cruz area. These sets of big waves are starting to move down the coast. The currents and swells are starting to come down. Southern Cal, here it comes! These waves will also be a natural sign that big waves of God's glory are coming soon!

A New Movement Will Be Birthed Out Of the Current Movement

I see a very large angel, the size of a building, standing over California. I hear him saying, "I have been sent to bring change! To those that are willing to hear, I will bring great change. I have been sent to change the Church in this area. The Lord has sent me to bring change." To those that are willing to hear, great change will come!

The current movement will be changed and a new move of God will be birthed from the current movement. Did you hear that? There's something happening right now in this territory. The error that has not been addressed will begin to be corrected. Hear what is being said, be a part of it!

I see this new movement hitting a lot of churches. They are reaching for it and saying, "We want this too!" I see it going through old churches with wooden pews, I see it going through poor churches that don't have money, I see it going through middle class churches, and I even see it going through "Seeker-Friendly" churches. There is a new move that is coming and it is going to come out of the current move!

I see the Body of Christ being choked; I see this Body gasping for air. I know Jesus is the Head, but I see this Body of people gasping for air. But I also see a gust of wind going into the mouth and I see it bringing forth enough oxygen, enough life to shake free. I see the Body take a fresh gasp of air. There's something changing right now in the Body of Christ. New voices will arise in the coming season in the Body of Christ. There is a shaking coming, but it's going to be okay. Once again prophetic preachers will declare loud and clear the uncompromised Word of God in America. There won't just be speaking and teaching, but preaching will come again with power and authority!

Troops of Angels

I see troops of angels coming! The big angel in this word is a Royal Prince in God's Army and as he speaks, troops of angels are coming to help America! Even as when the Lord was born, there was an entrance and an increase of angels in the world, so they are coming again to prepare what is about to take place! We've been talking about it and it's going to happen more than ever in the seasons ahead.

We must know the Word of God and use discernment to know the difference between the false and the true. Between familiar spirits and the angels that have been sent by God. And the way you'll know is by peace and presence. Anything that brings confusion and fear is of the enemy – refute it, rebuke it and move on! There is coming an increase of messengers to the earth who have been sent by God to His people.

Father, we thank You for the freedom!

An Unrepentant God by Robert Blackburn

‎"The Gifts and Calling of God are without Repentance." I need to say something to some people. If you have truly been called and God has given you certain gifts, you are not going to rest. Try to get it through your mind and heart that it just doesn't matter what other people think on this subject. It's true and it's not going to change. You can run, hide, shake it off and even try to bury it. But it's not going to leave you alone. No matter where you go, even the other side of the world, it will follow you.

I read today again in the Book of Acts that David was a Prophet. A prophet that failed God terribly. But it did not change who he was or change the lineage of the Messiah. Somebody needs to think about that. God knew his heart. You see, the people who judge others who've failed just don't know that persons heart. Even when it's obvious that God has forgiven and sees his gifts still intact, the ones He himself put there, many don't accept, trust or believe in that person. There is something that nudges at the edge of our thinking that there are many things which God ordained, long even before some of us were even born. We like to quote and speak about how God saw down through the ages etc. and called things that be not as though they were. But we have trouble with this topic. It's because it doesn't fit our theology and we have placed ourselves between that person and God to say what the Creator can and can not do. I must tell some of you that it is too bad what other people think but you have to listen. Save yourself a world of heartache and bumps is this life by surrendering to your calling. God did not give you Gifts for you to decide you didn't want them or need them anymore. Whatever your mistake or mishap, confess it, clean it up, forgive yourself and get on with what you're supposed to be doing. Let God handle the naysayers and scoffers.

If this is the end time, and it is, there is a stirring in the hearts and spirits of those who want to be in tune with what the Spirit intends to do. An unrest, if you please. God needs vessels. And those vessels who truly have the heart to do the work as the Spirit leads, feel this disturbance, this moving of the waters and I have to tell you something. You're not going to be able to ignore it or explain it away. God knows what you're made of. He ought to. He put it there. Please, we have to get our minds off of the unforgiving attitude of those around us and put our sights and minds on the forgiving heart of God. These people are not in control of your life. If you've asked God to be in control, He is. If you love Him and are seeking to move up and do whatever you can to live right and help someone else, God sees that. He does not see what the others see. Why should He. He put a lot of work in you and what those people think hasn't stopped Him or bothered Him much ever. It's not their calling and it's not their gifts. Let them quote scriptures and judge til they drop but it is not going to change what God set in motion. WE have got to get our minds on what He can do, not what they might do. God didn't call them to do your work, He called you. Jesus said, "You didn't choose me. I chose you." Forget them. Pray for them as much as you can but get your eyes on the right One. I tried to forget this message a long time ago. It still doesn't work. The Holy Ghost is going to quicken the bruised, battered, tired and even forgotten vessels. It's been His intent all along.

What Your Prison (the Result of Lies) Looks Like

When you have been put in chains by a lie, there is a familiar pattern to the prison:

  • You can no longer make decisions based on what you want, you are at the whim of those who insist they make them for you.
  • You are told what to eat, when, where and how much. Choice is no longer yours.
  • Your housing is all paid for, but it is much less then you hoped for when you dreamed of life for your family
  • Your fellow prisoners keep telling you that they have this figured out, that there is a way to game this thing for benefit.
  • You would go outside your Cell, but the violence and murder in the area is too much.
  • You have to be very careful what you say, even what you say in private is monitored.
  • You are not allowed to defend yourself at any level. Your warden is assigned to defend you...but he doesn't do a great job of it.
  • You are allowed to go out in the yard on occasions where you can bask in the sun and pretend things are OK...but you know in your heart something is wrong.
  • You are promised favors because you act a certain way. You are still expecting that favor. It isn't coming, but you keep hoping.
  • Everyone around you tells you this is the new normal, this is the way it is, and you can't change it.
  • When you talk to others about the situation they blame everyone and everything else. This warden blames the system. It's all someone else.

When you came here the hope was that you would be able to survive in community. Instead the warden has further segregated the cell blocks. You live with folks he determines are like you, others live with folks he determines are like them etc. AND.. he makes sure that the fear and distrust is such that you stay in your cell block.

You find yourself going along to get along. It's not what you wanted. But going against the grain of everyone around you is too painful. A few have, they have been shunned or worse.

There is no escape from inside this prison that you willingly walked into, took the chains and wrapped them around your own legs and locked your cell door. No escape until you make a quality decision to begin to escape. It will mean that nearly everything you thought you knew, everything you thought you believed, everything you were certain of comes into question. This prison is constructed completely by lies and can only be torn down by powerful truth. The truth to tear is down is right before you, the walls built of lies was built one brick at a time and every brick that must come down will hurt, will embarrass, will shame. But it's the only way out of prison.

Or you can choose to stay...who knows the warden just might make you a trustee to help him hold others in prison. That is a choice you must make. It starts by rejecting the lies you have been told and believed all your life.

Choose well.

John Belt: New Horses, High Places and New Wine

John Belt1. New Horses, New Leaders, High Places and Serving the Purposes of God

Matthew 23:11-12 But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

I had a vision where there were new horses ready in this season. These were friendly horses that were relational and approachable. These horses represent a new breed of leadership where love and relationship are not a side item but of utmost importance. Another aspect of these new leaders will be "a heart of servanthood." This will be at the core of who they are. Because of their servant heart they will be exalted to high places.

2. When the Thief Is Found

Exodus 22:7 ...if the thief is found, he shall pay double.

I had another vision where the thief had been discovered. If you have been stolen from, ask the Lord to expose the thief in your life. When you see this activity clearly, then command the thief to give back what he has taken with interest. God promises a double return. Realize what the Lord has given to you. Do not acquiesce your authority to the enemy, but stand your ground. Take your authority.

3. Let the Lord Take Your Heart Through Process

John 21:17 He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, "Do you love Me?" And he said to Him, "Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him, "Feed My sheep."

Just as Peter had to go through a series of events to be ready to be used in an extraordinary way, realize that God has a process for all of us. What the Lord worked in Peter was a new identity, a dependency upon the Lord so that he would not trust in His own strength. Learn to lean on the strength of God, not taking things into your own hands. God also wants to work out of us any "retaliation." Jesus was the Lamb of God that did not open His mouth to speak against His accusers. He did not retaliate.

4. Walk In Discernment, Be An Influence For the Kingdom of God

Philippians 1:9-11 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

Keep your discernment. Love and discernment work together. They always do. We do not turn on love and turn off discernment. We do not turn on discernment and turn off love. Rather, we use them both together. True discernment comes from the Holy Spirit Who pours the love of God in our hearts. Jesus comes to bring the cure. That cure can only happen because He sees what is needed.

5. Keep Your Heart Free and Walk In Love

Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Be willing to reconcile with others who are embittered against you. Some may be in a bitter place not wanting to reconcile. Maybe they "cut you off" because of their bitterness. Just realize you need to be willing to be a peacemaker. Pray that the Lord will tenderize their heart and fill them with the love of God. Bitterness blinds people. He who has a bitter root defiles many because they spread evil reports with gossip. Walk in love and pray that God gives them the gift of repentance.

6. Get Understanding on Sowing Seed and Harvest Time

2 Corinthians 9:6-7 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

Make an effort to understand the power of sowing and reaping. I'm sure that there are some who are "turned off" by different variations of this teaching. But just because someone does not represent it right does not mean it is not valid. Don't throw the baby out with the bath water. You may also be throwing away your intended blessing. God many times uses the thing that offends your natural mind to bless you as a test to see if you will receive it in that form. Jesus came to the religious leaders in a form they did not expect. Because they would not receive the way He came, they blew their God-given opportunity to receive Him.

People can get touchy on this subject because most have presented it in the context of finances. It is very valid in that context, but not limited to that. Realize that all God has entrusted to us we are the steward of. In that way, all that we have is seed that can be sown into different places. Our time, work, money, prayers, worship is all seed that is sown. One plants, one waters, but God gives the increase! If we want increase in our life, both in the spirit and in the natural, we need to get the revelation of seedtime and harvest. Who doesn't want a harvest in their lives? I believe we all do. But we have to sow in order to reap.

7. Drink His New Wine!

Hebrews 1:8-9 But to the Son He says: "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your Kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions."

I had an amazing experience where I fell face down intoxicated, drinking in the new wine of His Presence and laughing as the Holy Spirit was saturating me. It brought such an amazing wonderful weakness in His Presence. The Lord is going to pour out some vintage wine this year! It is going to be good! Take time to not only seek the Lord, but to receive from the Lord in His Presence. Allow God to fill you with His joy. For it is the joy that comes in His Presence that strengthens us. God will give you a fresh anointing as you simply receive in His Presence. Jesus was anointed with the oil of joy far above all others. How much more do we need His oil upon our lives.

Keep His song in your heart,

John Belt

Your Warden is Waiting

I am watching with my own eyes the consequences of what a lie bought by Christians and in particular christian leaders can do.

IF you buy into a little lie, a little misdirection, a little culturally acceptable but out of Line with God idea, you are opening a door to demonic influence and eventual rule. It happens faster and more insidiously than anyone can believe. IF you buy into a lie, you give permission to come and put you in bondage, as real as any chain could ever be.

Jesus came to bring truth..but the truth is too hard for most Christians to accept or live. So we buy the lie. The deception currently roaring thru the Body of Christ is amazing. What's worse, identifying the lie and the liars doesn't help. People never want to believe they have been deceived. "How could that be", They say, They get their praise on every Sunday and on Monday they willingly parrot the lies they are hearing.

It's only when they are finally in chains, locked up, broken down, then you can come to them and walk them out of the lies that put them in chains. It takes a Pig Pen experience to turn a Prodigal towards home. Lots of Prodigal Churches, Ministries, Pastors and Senior Leaders are headed for Pig Pen City. The wardens are waiting with chains and shackles. I would warn you of this, but you must have ears to hear. You don't.

Churches without God Given Foundations are Crumbling

This is EXACTLY how I experience the Ministry of a Prophet in Churches. Therefore, Churches are wilting in the heat and dying on the vine. They crumble because they have rejected the foundation that God has given them (Ephesians 4). They try to gin up some kind of hoopla without the word of the Lord. Not PREACHING. The Prophetic. IF you are a prophet, called of God to the Office, You will identify with this. Fortunately I know a FEW churches that are built on the God ordained foundations and stand strong. But way too few. IF there is no voice of the Lord present...crash will follow. AND NO...the Apostle of the House cannot be his own Prophet. Certainly no Pastor can be his own prophet. Nor Teacher, Nor Evangelist. A prophet must have no loyalty to anything other than the revelation God gives him and then be willing to stand for love, but firmly. Even when they try to kill him or hide him in a pit.

Understanding NT Prophets

ReadingBlueprintsThis article is excerpted from our book, Healing: Hope or Hype?
I was once in a nominally Charismatic megachurch that had over twenty individuals on staff. One of the associate pastors admitted to me that they were all pastors (emphasis his).

None of the other Ephesians 4:11 ministries were present. This condition was considered normative rather than imbalanced. I’ve always found it amusing how in some folks’ minds, it’s impossible to have too much of a pastoral anointing, but let one or two prophets show up on the scene, and all of a sudden the phrase “too extreme” pops up and everyone obsesses about the need for balance! Apparently having twenty pastors is not extreme, but having one prophet is.

He admitted that prophets existed in a general sense but said his church had no personal dealings with any. If that’s the situation in a successful church, imagine what it might be like elsewhere. This widespread lack of exposure to genuine NT prophetic ministry deadens the capacity in believers to accurately hear and respond to a prophetic sound unless it’s erroneously understood in one of three definitional categories below:

■Concern about end-time events (Fundamentalism/Evangelicalism view).
■The exercise of a gift: accurately predicting events, giving personal prophecy, words of knowledge, dreams, visions, etc. (Pentecostal/Charismatic view).
■Temperamental definitions: Someone who is passionate, aggressive, or black and white in viewpoint. It’s often considered the equivalent of being harsh, negative, judgmental, severe, or direct in interpersonal style.

All three are extremely unfortunate definitions. At best they’re deficient and at worst, error. While thematic continuity prevents me from digressing into a full consideration of this topic,[i] it’s important to take a glimpse into how the prophetic consciousness differs from a pastoral point of view.

The primary concern of pastors, the lens through which they view the kingdom and process kingdom values, can be generally categorized[ii] as providing people with an overall cheerful and hopeful sense of things. That is, they view their job as assuring that people are well cared for, content, and have an overall good go at kingdom life because of God’s great love for them. Pastors want believers to reproduce (church growth). They understand that reproduction only happens in an atmosphere of peace and a sense of well-being. When “sheep” are being sheared, prodded to move, fighting with each other, or agitated because of a nearby wolf, they don’t reproduce. Pastoral values are not wrong, per se–just incomplete. Because of this focus, most pastors expect prophets to bless and edify the local church based on a misapplication of 1 Corinthians14:3. That verse explains the limitation of the congregational gift of prophecy, not the ministry of a prophet.[iii]

Apostles and prophets lay foundations.[iv] If the foundation is crooked or cracked, or if the Chief Cornerstone is not accurately positioned in preeminence, a prophet is going to see it, call it out, and not let up until the presiding authorities do something about it. A pinhole for most people is an abyss for a prophet. This isn’t a defect, deficiency, or disorder in the prophet. It’s just the prophetic lens and calling. It’s different than a pastor’s and equally necessary. Prophets call existing mindsets, systems, and structures into accurate kingdom alignment. This usually involves clearing out debris before a hole is dug and new concrete is poured. Prophets typically root out, pull down, destroy, and throw down before they plant and build.[v] Bad news often precedes good news in a prophetic ministry. The relentless focus on what is broken or crooked strikes those who don’t understand the prophetic mind as being unduly “negative.”

Blessing and edifying people when there’s no legitimate reason characterizes a false prophet.[vi] Prophets are always accused of being the troublers of Israel.[vii] They normally warn about upcoming captivity when everything visible today says otherwise: “Things are fine! I’m having a great time! What’s wrong with you Mr. Prophet? Let’s ignore all that judgmental negativity! God loves me . . . nothing bad is going to happen to me . . . I have three positive confession verses on my fridge to prove it!” Prophets are not so much concerned about individual blessedness as much as where people are headed and how individuals are treating each other along the way.

Genuine prophetic ministry always contains a social element, as even a cursory reading of the Old Testament record will reveal. The prophets are concerned about the widows, the poor, unrighteous economics, corrupt political and religious institutions, and their leaders. Prophets have a burning compassion for the oppressed.[viii] By their nature they champion and advocate the cause of those who have no voice or who are too weak to plead their own cause. Out of a deep sympathy for God Himself, His interests in the people, and the people themselves, a prophet personally resents the injuries done to others.

Prophets are compelled by a higher perception of God’s justice than what others possess. This passion for justice is not merely justice for justice sake, which is a misguided perfectionism that obsesses about accurate adherence to some philosophical idea about right or wrong. God is concerned not because a precept of justice has been violated, but because a person has been hurt. Reflecting this aspect of God’s nature, a prophet’s primary concern is not merely the violation of some code, but the presence of oppression of any sort: seen, unseen, conceptual, methodological, or psychological. The prophet’s condemnation of injustice is rooted in his/her sympathy with divine care for humanity, particularly His own people.

God’s justice is always tilted in favor of the oppressed. Wherever power, authority, control, or money aggregate, prophets will be sent to challenge all human power centers–in and out of the church. Prophets frequently singled out the leaders, kings, princes and false prophets of their day as responsible for the sins of the community. A similar situation today threatens insecure pastors and makes them feel like the prophet is either against them personally or the church corporately.

I once had a conversation with a “pastor” of a “successful” church who said that he believed the appropriate response to an injustice done to people by church leaders is silent submission to leadership authority. He said that silent submission to injustice would work godly character into the one submitting and that only the Lord could sort out matters of injustice. The rationale for this perspective was a very unfortunate and erroneous application[ix] of “touching not the Lord’s anointed” taken from the account of David not resisting Saul’s injustices. Well, the way the Lord sorts out injustice is by sending prophets to His leaders! Prophets, by divine design, do not normally show up when everything is as it should be! I was so heartbroken as my friend did not seem to understand how his view approximated the essence of evil.
There is an evil which most of us condone and are even guilty of: we remain neutral, impartial, and not easily moved by the wrongs done to other people. Indifference to evil is more insidious than evil itself. It’s more universal, more contagious, and more dangerous. A silent justification makes evil that erupts as an exception to become the rule, and in turn allows it to be widely accepted.[x] Indifference to injustice is the normalization of evil.

The good news part of the prophetic message is redemptive hope. If untempered by grace and mercy, justice becomes injustice and a sense of hopelessness prevails. Making people feel hopeless is not the prophetic anointing in either Old or New Covenants. God’s rebuke always contains hope for a different future for those who respond to God’s outstretched call to return.

The prophet’s passion and demand for responsive action are a reflection of God’s nature. The accurate knowledge of God is action toward man, sharing His concern for justice. God’s love is sympathy in action. Both Old and New Testaments are explicit on this: you cannot say you love God and not care for humanity. The prophets are the embodiment of this in the Old Testament. Jesus and the Apostles expand it in the New.

Bill Yount: Are the Stars Pulling Out All the Stops for the Endtime Warfare?

Recently on March 11, 2012, when turning our clocks forward, losing an hour in order to gain more daylight time, my watch suddenly stopped. I sensed it was too unlikely for it to stop at this specific time. Was it prophetic? I was reminded of the day when Joshua was in the heat of battle and time was running out for Israel to overcome their enemy. They needed more daylight to overcome the darkness coming against them. Joshua spoke to the sun (a big star) to stand still, and it obeyed and the moon stayed and didn't move for a whole day (Joshua 10:12-13). This gave Israel the edge to win:

Then Joshua spoke to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, "O sun, stand still at Gibeon, and O moon in the valley of Aijalon." So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies. Is it not written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.

The morning after my watch stopped, during worship at a church meeting, I sensed the Lord saying, "In the Spirit, the sun is standing still again for many who are seemingly losing in their battle so they can be avenged of their enemy. The heavens over you are now coming into alignment to execute justice for many in the earth."

What does the Bible mean in Judges 5:20 where it says, "They fought from the heavens, the stars from their courses fought against Sisera"? God's people? Can the stars do warfare? And in Job 38:7, "...the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy." Do stars really sing? And if they do, what are they singing about? What is so special about the stars to God that He counts the number of the stars and calls each one by their names? (Psalm 147:4). Why in the heavens is each star so significant to the Lord? Could they be playing a significant role in what is going on down here on the earth?

"Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in Heaven." (Psalm 119:89). We are in a time where the very heavens are declaring the glory of God more than ever! Fresh revelation from Heaven on high is now being released in these last days. Unusual events are taking place like never before in our solar system.

Could it be that all of creation at this time, including the constellations of the stars, are holding nothing back from worshiping their Creator? It's no wonder that if you look up on a starry night that the awe overwhelms you. The stars truly are emitting something so profound and yet so simple. Even as each star produces its own light through nuclear fusion, they were also created to shine forth the glorious light of the Gospel.

Scientists have just discovered that the huge star (the sun) in the center of our solar system produces its own music. The Telegraph U.K. reports that Astronomers at the University of Sheffield have managed to record for the first time the eerie musical harmonies produced by the magnetic field in the outer atmosphere of the sun which vibrate like strings on a musical instrument (click here). Imagine every star as a musician and the heavens as a symphony orchestra. I wonder who the Conductor could be?

Romans 1:20 "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse."

The Stars Remind Lucifer How Far He Has Fallen

Isaiah 14:12-13 "How art thou fallen from Heaven O lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground which did weaken the nations! For thou has said in thine heart, I will ascend into Heaven. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God..."

Satan well knew to whom the stars belonged. The stars to this day remind lucifer of how far he has fallen. Could it be that he heard the morning stars singing (Job 38:7), worshipping their Creator, as he fell down through them? Is it any wonder that he hates those constellations of stars that he could never rise above to be like God? Lucifer went from being the chief worship leader in Heaven to no longer being in the choir.

In these end times even the zodiac is being exposed for what it really represents as in, Eternal Destinies as Revealed in The Stars, by Barbara Hunt, "The stars are not telling anyone their fortune or future. They are telling us about the One and only Person who can – their Creator and ours, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, 'the bright and morning star'" (Revelation 22:16).

HELP, I'm stuck and I can't get out

Most ministries and churches are inextricably stuck and can't free themselves. Only by letting go of the past mire and allowing the Holy Ghost tow truck to pull them out of the muck will they come into the destiny God has for them. I see this as clearly as I have in a long time. STUCKNESS is the disease of the western church. IF you allow the past, your legacy, your history, your always done it that way, your position, your denomination, your allegiance and yes your friendships to keep you stuck you are making a low quality decision. Forget what lies behind, press on to the high calling. You deserve to be free, but pulling out of the pit will be painful. Now let go.

GOD increase our ability to hear You accurately so that we do not offer anything of ourselves that is carnal in nature but only that which is of You God, by worshiping you in spirit and in truth God, that we only offer the best of sacrifice to give you a tribute, an offering, that is to acknowledge Who You are, God Almighty, the Great I Am, Who is worthy to be praised! Forgive us for areas where we the Church have been deceived and out of ignorance offered up any strange fire at your Holy altar. God remove the defilement from the cursed offering in Jesus Name! Let not what has been offered in abhorrence and defilement to you God be on our hands any longer in Jesus Name! God purify us and purge us of all ungodly fire, any spirit that is not Holy Spirit, that would be in operation God! I take the Sword of the Spirit right now and cut it off of Your Bride, Your Church, God and I command that foul spirit to loose Your Church and go into the abyss in Jesus Name!God I call in the Fear of the Lord to cause us to yield in full surrender to Your plans and purposes, Your Holy Protocol, where we do not approach the Holy things of the Lord and defile them because of carnality or any other spirit in Jesus Name!

For the last few months everywhere I have turned I keep coming across the word “tribute.” Tribute means to offer a gift or present to another you esteem as acknowledgement. Therefore, a tribute is likened to an offering as in God's Word. Then God began to speak to me regarding the tribute (offering) His people are offering to Him is causing some to be under a curse without knowing it and that many are perishing as a result.

Holy Spirit has been showing me that there are things in God's Church where we think we are doing the work of the Lord as it relates to His Holy House and the Holy things of His House. Through our carnality and other spirits we are offering up a strange fire, that which is not pure and Holy to the Lord and is an abomination to Him. He said it is time now for My church to yield to My plans and preparation as it relates to entering into Holiness so that we do not walk with presumption or in error. For many He said are suffering unnecessary illness and disease because of defiling His Holy Temple. The Spirit of God said that He is about to bring a measure of His Holy Spirit in many churches that is as in the time of Acts and we are to truly seek Him as to how we are to go about entering into His House for His meetings in reverence and awe, yielding fully to His protocol and not man’s protocol or agenda. Holy Spirit came on me recently in worship with the Fear of the Lord and I began to tremble and my legs were weak I could barely stand. All I could do was weep in travail as I saw the profanity through God's eyes and it pierced my heart.

4But Nadab and Abihu died before the Lord when they offered strange fire before the Lord in the Wilderness of Sinai; and they had no children. So Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the presence and under the supervision of Aaron their father. Numbers 3:4

Here, Aaron is the priest for Israel and all of His sons are to follow in the priesthood as Aaron. It is only the priests that could approach and administer to the Lord God and partake of administering and handling the “Holy” things in which they ministered to the Lord. Anyone else who would attempt to handle or that would approach to minister to the Lord would instantly die.

10And you shall appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall observe and attend to their priest's office; but the excluded [anyone daring to assume priestly duties or privileges who is not of the house of Aaron and called of God] who comes near [the holy things] shall be put to death. Numbers 3:10

Therefore, King Uzziah was struck instantly by God with a curse because he approached God’s holy instruments and did contrary to the Lord God’s instructions.

16But when [King Uzziah] was strong, he became proud to his destruction; and he trespassed against the Lord his God, for he went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense. 17And Azariah the priest went in after him and with him eighty priests of the Lord, men of courage. 18They opposed King Uzziah and said to him, It is not for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the Lord, but for the priests, the sons of Aaron, who are set apart to burn incense. Withdraw from the sanctuary; you have trespassed, and that will not be to your credit and honor before the Lord God. 19Then Uzziah was enraged, and he had a censer in his hand to burn incense. And while he was enraged with the priests, leprosy broke out on his forehead before the priests in the house of the Lord, beside the incense altar. 2 26:16-19

God showed me that likewise the Church has approached His Holy things in a condition and state that is contrary to His instruction and we have brought upon ourselves God’s judgment and are suffering curses as a result of this act of profanity. God says that He is looking for a Holy and set a part group of people that are dedicated to only doing what the Lord God instructs them. As we stand in the righteousness of Jesus Christ and offer our praise and worship to the Lord with clean hands and a pure heart God the Father will receive our sweet incense an worship.


When we look at the two sons of Aaron that offered strange fire upon the altar to the Lord in God’s Word two things incredibly are revealed.

4But Nadab and Abihu died before the Lord when they offered strange fire before the Lord in the Wilderness of Sinai; and they had no children. So Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the presence and under the supervision of Aaron their father. Numbers 3:4.

Nadab in Hebrew means father of worship and Abihu in Hebrew means liberal, spontaneous and impelled. God then showed me what is happening in His house where judgment is falling upon many that have not reverenced Him. He showed me that in the place of worship, where we enter in to offer God the sweet smelling savor of our worship, which is fragrant and we are ending up instead offering a liberal and spontaneous worship, we are impelled to offer God out of carnality or of another spirit that is of satan, has profaned God. As a result, we have stirred up God's jealousy which has caused the curse of aborting destinies, and churches under this curse have a spiritual and natural wasting away as indicated in Numbers in regard to the woman that has committed adultery. In Numbers 5 most of the chapter is given over to how to deal with a woman who has committed adultery and in the Amplified Numbers 5:14 speaks of a “spirit of jealousy” that comes upon the husband. The woman is to go through a process where she is to partake of bitter waters and declare an oath that if she has committed adultery the curse would come upon her as a result. The curse will cause the woman’s body to swell and her thigh to fall off.

14And if the spirit of jealousy comes upon him and he is jealous and suspicious of his wife who has defiled herself--or if the spirit of jealousy comes upon him and he is jealous and suspicious of his wife though she has not defiled herself-- 15Then shall the man bring his wife to the priest, and he shall bring the offering required of her, a tenth of an ephah of barley meal; but he shall pour no oil upon it nor put frankincense on it [symbols of favor and joy], for it is a cereal offering of jealousy and suspicion, a memorial offering bringing iniquity to remembrance. 16And the priest shall bring her near and set her before the Lord. 17And the priest shall take holy water [probably from the sacred laver] in an earthen vessel and take some of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle and put it in the water. 18And the priest shall set the woman before the Lord, and let the hair of the woman's head hang loose, and put the meal offering of remembrance in her hands, which is the jealousy and suspicion offering. And the priest shall have in his hand the water of bitterness that brings the curse. 19Then the priest shall make her take an oath, and say to the woman, If no man has lain with you and if you have not gone astray to uncleanness with another instead of your husband, then be free from any effect of this water of bitterness which brings the curse. 20But if you have gone astray and you are defiled, some man having lain with you beside your husband, 21Then the priest shall make the woman take the oath of the curse, and say to the woman, The Lord make you a curse and an oath among your people when the Lord makes your thigh fall away and your body swell. 22May this water that brings the curse go into your bowels and make your body swell and your thigh fall away. And the woman shall say, So let it be, so let it be. 23The priest shall then write these curses in a book and shall wash them off into the water of bitterness; 24And he shall cause the woman to drink the water of bitterness that brings the curse, and the water that brings the curse shall enter into her [to try her] bitterly. 25Then the priest shall take the cereal offering of jealousy and suspicion out of the woman's hand and shall wave the offering before the Lord and offer it upon the altar. 26And the priest shall take a handful of the cereal offering as the memorial portion of it and burn it on the altar, and afterward shall cause the woman to drink the water. 27And when he has made her drink the water, then if she is defiled and has committed a trespass against her husband, the curse water which she drank shall be bitterness and cause her body to swell and her thigh to fall away, and the woman shall be a curse among her people. 28But if the woman is not defiled and is clean, then she shall be free [from the curse] and be able to have children. 29This is the law of jealousy and suspicion when a wife goes aside to another instead of her husband and is defiled, 30Or when the spirit of jealousy and suspicion comes upon a man and he is jealous and suspicious of his wife; then shall he set the woman before the Lord, and the priest shall execute on her all this law. 31The [husband] shall be free from iniquity and guilt, and that woman [if guilty] shall bear her iniquity. Numbers 5:14-31.

In Numbers 5:24 we see that after the woman drinks the “water of bitterness” that the manifestation as to her adultery would occur by the curse, the iniquity of the law, coming upon her causing her to be in a state of barrenness and wasting away.

Holy Spirit began to convict me in the Fear of the Lord of times and cause a spirit of repentance by Holy Spirit to pour out upon me so that I would repent of any strange fire like Aaron’s sons that I and the Church might have offered in pride or arrogance in worship to the Lord. How many times have "we" set the protocol and agenda and usurped God’s Holy protocol to enter into worship and give a sweet smelling offering to Him through Christ Jesus in us making us the Salt of the Earth, to pour out on the cereal offering and using the oil of incense (Holy Spirit in us) waving a tribute of praise, an offering of praise the Lord God most High? How man times do we defile the Temple, His House, His Holy Place? How many of us have worshiped God with liberality not in line with His Spirit in us but of another spirit and as a result God’s law has caused a curse to fall upon us or our family, where we are wasting away having no fruitfulness in our lives, aborting God’s call; and causing us to be overtaken by the enemy through spiritual sickness and disease as that of King Uzziah getting leprosy and Aaron’s sons not having children.

I declare that Holy Spirit exposes to the light any areas in our personal lives, homes, ministries and churches where we have been impelled liberally in worship to offer up a strange fire to the Lord that has caused judgment on our lives, ministry, church, business, home and individual family members. I ask that God’s Holy Spirit brings to light in greater measure, areas in which we are not yielded to His protocol and that Holy Spirit comes upon us in repentance in Jesus Name!

God I ask that you humble us and make us broken and contrite before you to see with Your eyes clearly and hear with Your ears clearly so that we only offer that which is of Your Spirit to You God. God demonstrates the very same thing will result on us as it relates in Holy Communion as to the curse falling upon us; the iniquity of the law. As we see the results of God’s judgment in Holy Communion it is the same thing as in with the adulteress woman.

26For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are representing and signifying and proclaiming the fact of the Lord's death until He comes [again]. 27So then whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in a way that is unworthy [of Him] will be guilty of [profaning and sinning against] the body and blood of the Lord. 28Let a man [thoroughly] examine himself, and [only when he has done] so should he eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29For anyone who eats and drinks without discriminating and recognizing with due appreciation that [it is Christ's] body, eats and drinks a sentence (a verdict of judgment) upon himself. 30That [careless and unworthy participation] is the reason many of you are weak and sickly, and quite enough of you have fallen into the sleep of death. 1 Corinthians 11:26-30.

The scriptures in Numbers 5 regarding the adulteress woman of inserted in God’s Word between the work of the tribe of Levi to carefully handle and assist Aaron with the Holy articles and instruments of the Tabernacle in Numbers 4 and the Numbers 6 declaration of the Nazirite vow being holy and separated unto the Lord with the priestly blessing upon Israel. God has Numbers 5 in between both of these scriptures signifying that should we as a church behave as a harlot we will cause the iniquity of the law to fall upon us which is clearly identified in 1 Corinthians 11:26-30.

Prayer you can pray:

Father God forgive me for coming near Your Holy things and entering into worship in carnality or of any other spirit that is not of You God. Forgive me and all of my family, Forgive me for not standing on Your truth for how I am to approach You and the Holy things of Your Holy place God. Forgive me God for allowing my flesh or another spirit to impel me in liberality to worship you outside of Your Holiness and Your protocol. Forgive me Lord and remove this iniquity of Your Law that has placed a curse upon me or others in my family God because of offering strange fire on your altar, for offering worship to you in our carnality of pride of life God. Forgive us Oh Lord God! In Jesus Name! Forgive us God and restore to us the fullness of the righteousness of Jesus Christ who took the curse of the profanity that man offered and removed it from our nature God so that we would walk only in the spirit God. God breathe upon us the Fear of the Lord, restoring to us the Joy of our Salvation and prepare us to be Holy as You are Holy now this day Lord in Jesus Name! God rip asunder our agendas, our plans, where we are trying to make room for you or perform God, rip it up in Jesus Name! Only let Your Word be true and Your Holy Spirit guide us into the truth of Your Word and Your protocol so we do not usurp Your protocol but reverence you with reverential and worshipful Fear of the Lord in Jesus Name! Amen!

The Reality of God in America by Steve Duignan

Everyone who comes to God has a Burning Bush experience – they must turn aside to see Him. Becoming a Christian is not an intellectual experience in which we accept the existence of God because He has been proven to exist. As it says in Hebrews 11:6 - “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”

It was only after Great Awakening in the 1730’s – 40’s that the idea of the United States emerged. People could see a nation birthed in freedom because they had personally met God – the author and giver of freedom.

Only after a Second Great Awakening from 1800-1840 that America could purge itself of slavery – proof that all men could be free in a nation founded on liberty.

It will take a third Great Awakening to return us to the truth that individuals with freedoms and responsibilities are greater than a ruling class of godless elites who claim to know better how to run our lives than we do.

Ultimately, the way each American sees reality - our world-view – will determine whether our nation returns to its Christian roots or descends into yet another grey failed socialist experiment.

Before meeting Jesus personally, all other possibilities seem real. After meeting Him, there is no other door possible. (Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death)

Many Christian leaders first examined Liberal, Progressive, Marxist ideals – which seem right to the natural mind. After meeting Jesus, only His Kingdom is right – unshakable, meeting every need of the human heart.

Our understanding of America can only come through the Kingdom of God – through the Biblical Worldview. Others can study and observe the “rightness” of a nation based on individual freedom and responsibility, but they must ultimately return to their own logic – their own logical worldview:

  • All truth must be supported by science
  • Evolution is the natural order of things – Creation sounds good, but it’s a myth
  • It is unfair for God to bless some people while leaving others without.
  • No one religion can be pre-eminent - it isn’t fair - therefore government (the ultimate judge of fairness) cannot allow any single religion to be expressed in the public square.

Only “Awakening” can reverse the course away from the founding wisdom of America – when our Fathers told us that only a nation of Christian people can make freedom work. Only those with the inner-regulation of the Holy Spirit can see how it works and live peaceably in it.

John Adams (2nd US President, Signer of the Declaration of Independence) said: "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion… Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Bobby Conner: How to Maintain a Tranquil Soul

Bobby ConnerLiving in Perfect Peace

Nirvana will not be generated by people or prescription pills. It is not obtained through yoga or occult meditation or any other occult practice. True tranquility of soul, genuine godly peace, is only found in the person of Christ, not in some ritual or pagan practice. He alone is the Prince of Peace.

The antidote for negative thoughts or emotions is simple: We must obey the Word of God. The only cure for fear and anxiety is abiding in the Word, the person of Christ Jesus. Paul declares in Philippians 4:6-7 (AMP):

"Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God's peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."

The answer to stress and anxiety is not medication but a living relationship with the Master! This is the pattern we need to learn: As we turn our inner focus, our will, to Christ and place our affections on Him, adjusting our thoughts to the Word, we will discover abiding peace. This is the Enoch walk of the overcomer!

Christ's presence within us is our assurance that we can live in peace, even in times of pressure and turmoil. The promise is much more than just merely getting through the tough times – He promises us perfect peace and constant contentment.

Does this sound too good to be true? Hardly! This is the abundant life purchased for us by the broken body and spilled Blood of the Lamb of God at Calvary. He died and rose again to birth the Kingdom of God within us when we are born again. The Prince of Peace abides within us! We have a Blood-bought right to walk in uninterrupted shalom, free from all anxiety and fear, because of the living, breathing presence of Christ in our temple.

This is not too good to be true. Despite the arguments of your mind and heart, the Scriptures are always true – and they are filled with examples of people who lived in peace in overwhelming situations.

Abraham believed God, even as he raised the knife over Isaac (see Genesis 22). Caleb and Joshua believed God's promises after 40 years in the desert (see Numbers 14:38).

Mary believed God's Word, having never known a man – and her soul rejoiced (see Luke 1:26-38). Christ Himself believed His Father even as He was crucified. When He overcame sin, fear, and death at Calvary, we overcame them in Him. We were united with Him in death, and we are united with Him in His resurrection. The Cross stripped all power from fear and anxiety; they no longer have legal mastery over our souls – unless we let them rule.

We must not allow fear and anxiety to rule in our lives. We must first recognize the voices of the enemy – spirits of fear, rejection, accusation, and more. We must then repent from coming into agreement with these evil spirits and begin to hate evil with a perfect hatred. Then we must renounce the presence of these demonic beings in our lives and cast them away in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Ask for and receive forgiveness from your heavenly Father for having come into agreement with the lies of the devil.

As we submit to God and resist the devil, we will experience the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding. In our union with His resurrection, we have been given open access to perfect peace. How do we abide in this peace as a daily, lived experience? We do it by keeping our minds, wills, and emotions fixed on Christ and living lives of repentance from sin. Whenever your thoughts or emotions stray from the Prince of Peace, recognize the temptation of the evil one. If your heart has already come into agreement with his evil suggestions, simply receive forgiveness and return to the heart of your Beloved, which is found in His Word.

Despite the Storms...

Ponder the promise in Isaiah 26:3-4, "You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength."

We must never doubt that God is good and that He does good. Instead, we must be confident that "The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him" (Nahum 1:7).

This is the Rock on which we can stand when the storms come our way – and they will indeed come (see Matthew 7:24-27).

Despite the storms, however, God's plans and purposes for you are wonderful. Jeremiah 29:11 says: "'For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,' says the Lord, 'thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.'"

You must distinguish between the truths of God and the facts of your existence – and choose to trust the Lord, no matter what you perceive or feel. Look not at the facts of your life, and do not place your emotions upon the facts of your life but upon the truths of these marvelous Scriptures. Then you will abide in peace. Instead of worry and anxiety, recall this to mind: "The Lord's compassion and mercies are overwhelming. When I recall this, I have hope. I am not consumed because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness!" (Lamentations 3:20-24)

Your battleground is not the circumstances of your life. The true battleground of the enemy is in your mind, will, and emotions. Keeping your thoughts and heart focused on good things will prevent darkness from overtaking your soul:

"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you." (Philippians 4:8-9)

Paul wrote, "Be anxious for nothing..." (Philippians 4:6). We must stay focused on Christ and His unchangeable Kingdom if we are to have abiding peace during these days of chaos:

"But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble" (Matthew 6:33-34).

There is no greater warfare than our abiding with the Prince of Peace. The God of peace will crush our foe under our feet (see Romans 16:20). The moment you feel the loss of peace, repent and ask for the Forgiver Himself to flood you with His peace. Have no doubt – He will bring peace because He always keeps His promises.

Stay in HIM – stay at peace!
