The Shaking. The Awakening

This awakening will either move to TOWARDS THE KINGDOM or away from it. There is no more middle ground. No compromise. No independent of the purposes of God left to pretend. You will either be for Him or Against Him. May well meaning ministers of the Gospel, Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastor and Teachers of the Law (as Jesus called them) will now find themselves faced with a choice. That choice will mean GLORY or DESTRUCTION. The parallels between today and the day Jesus was condemned and Barabbas was chosen by a cheering crowd is stunning. We are there once again. An ungodly choice is before us. Choose this day whom you will serve. When the shaking comes you will have to decide. Jerusalem in less than the time of a person's life was destroyed competently. People who rejected the truth of God were slain or taken prisoner. We are there again. This nation, once UNDER GOD, will not stand long as it turns it's back on the covenant once made. Yes, there will be a remnant, but MUCH smaller than anyone imagines. You might even think you are among the Remnant. Are you? Do you stand with GOD in his Righteousness or have you bought the devils the teachers of the law did in the days of Jesus?

Those with eye(s)s to see are clearly recognizing and seeing, that all of humanity is shifting and shaking are being shaken, individually within and corporately....your heavens-mindsets , thought life and paradigms are being shaken. As well as your earth, your habits, the way you eat, your lifestyles, your bodies are being shaken and change is inevitable... from that shaking then comes the "awakening" out of the sleep of Adams death. Your inner eyes are NOW slowly being opened and limitless light.... to this dawning of a new age. Once again we, in Spirit..... are hearing the voice of our Abba and He is teaching us, himself to speak...... the words.... of the Everlasting Gospel. Receive you the Kingdom!!!

Hebrews 12:26-28
Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

An Easter Blessing

The Empty Tomb, The Prophecy of Christ and the Faith Gift You received from GOD is your testimony since not seeing, yet you believe John 20:29... you are blessed on this morning.

If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.  Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.  If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. 1 Corinthians 15:17-19

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, Ephesians 2:8

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. Colossians 1:15

“Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day.”  Then they remembered that he had said this. So they rushed back from the tomb to tell his eleven disciples—and everyone else—what had happened. Luke 24:5-8

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.  Hebrews 11:1

Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek him.  Hebrews 11:6

I heard the Lord Say... Don't Love what I hate

I heard this early this morning. It disturbed me.  God is calling those in the office of Prophet to draw the line between those who have by their actions and omissions chosen to be enemies of God by embracing evil; and those who are the Friends of God.  It may not be where you think and some reading this are on the wrong side of that line.  God Hates.  You may be one.  Read on.

Hate seems inflammatory in the Christian World.  God is Love.  We hear that.  It's true.  This weekend is the ultimate commemoration of his love.  But there ARE things, and even people, that God hates.

It's hard to understand this if you are under the illusion that God is ever loving.. no matter what.

He said to us thru the Apostle John in 1 John 2:15  -  "Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them".

If we are to NOT love the world then what was that John 3:16 thing all about.  God so loved... the catch is "whosoever BELIEVETH",  The problem is we have somehow watered down the Gospel to include just any living breathing soul to include this. Yes, it's all available some are by their own volition, ENEMIES of God until they come to Faith in Him.

"For if, while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!"  Romans 5:10

God says Love your enemies and he demonstrated that.  But there are things, actions and people that God hates.  We must not allow our compassion and desire to go along to get along dilute a clear demarcation between what God calls evil and what God calls good.  We are engaged in a real battle in the spirit in our nation right now.  It looks like God might lose... He won't but because of misled deceived Christians avoiding confronting sin, satan will advance.  The restraining influence has been withdrawn.

2 Thessalonians 2:6–7 And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.

You know something has become unrestrained when it comes loose, falls off, breaks free, runs wild.  We are there now.

There are things that God hates and he encourages us to hate these things as well.  No only the actions, but those who promote and support them. It is no longer just "Pray for Him or Her", David when facing the blaspheming Philistine Giant Goliath didn't pray, "Lord turn him from his evil ways".  He slew him.  He faced him down.  He took him on. It's time for the house of David to once again in the name of the Son of David proclaim and openly oppose the evil that has invaded our land and blasphemes the name of the living God.

Let us look at our role in this hatred:  

“Let those who love the Lord hate evil” Psalm 97:10a   

That means you must have no fellowship with those who are purveyors of evil.  With those who do evil.  With those who support evil. Evil is clear... if it's not to you what is evil and what is good... that is another problem.

 Proverbs 8:13
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate.     

The fact that we don't hate evil, pride and arrogance is evidence that we do not fear God.  We tolerate it in the name of a false love.  The Love of the world has consumed us.

To be clear, God clearly states those things that are EVIL and those things that HE HATES:

Proverbs 6:16-19
16 These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 

17 A proud look, a proud look speaks of a person who would want his or her will above the will of God and the will of others. It speaks of people who are arrogant and full of themselves.
Did you know that pride was the first sin ever committed? Even before Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, the sin of pride was committed by Lucifer. He wasn't satisfied to be an angel serving the Lord. He wanted to be God. And God banished him because of his pride.
A lying tongue,  Using flattery, fantasy and imagination to get ones way or persuade others to evil.  Those who allow lies to go unchallenged are as much as endorsing them.  Love is not passivity.
Hands that shed innocent blood, This is the sin of Abortion and Murder that God HATES today.  Yet many by their silence or even their endorsement at the ballot box and other places have become partners in the hands that shed innocent blood and as such are hated by God.
18 A heart that devises wicked plans, These are the plans that Men create which are intended to put other men in bondage.  No plan is without wickedness when it takes freedom, blood or resources from one to give to another.
Feet that are swift in running to evil,    When you hear anyone say, "we have to do something" or "we have to do this right now"... it's running to evil.  Without the capacity to make simple singular sound decisions based on all the evidence means we have no hope of being able to avoid the evil that lurks in the hearts of men that would bring us to that end.  When you hear cries of HASTE.. hate it.  This is the call you hear today regarding same sex marriage.  A concept not yet 15 years old, but we are being urged to move ahead quickly in overturning something in place for thousands of Years.
19 A false witness who speaks lies,   There is overwhelming in our culture today and God hates it.  People who are Godly are portrayed as evil,  people who do evil are portrayed as good.  Our news media, our television and movie programming has this meme constantly.  We now see evil as good and good as evil  Worse than that, the false witness is being taught in our schools.  Kids are being told that the good guys were bad and the bad guys were good.  It's all upside down.  The false witness has hobbled a generation unable to discern good from evil... so evil reigns.
and one who sows discord among brethren.  We cannot win this fight against the evil one on our own. We must be unified.  Yes, some that I lock shields with may not agree with me one every Jot and Tittle... but if we agree on our mutual enemy, it is enough.  God is not concerned with nuance as much as the unity that brings victory.  I often rail against those who would spread disunity among the Body.  Pastor Phil talked last night about Discerning the Body... that may be wider than we think but some who would claim they are... are not.  Discerning is the key.

IF anyone who would do battle are or were supporters (traitors) against the purposes of God in light of what He hates, they must first repent of their gross sin, turn from their wicked ways and begin to march toward the light... or we will die. 

Will you fight or compromise in your love for the world?

Homosexual Marriage is Demonic Strategy

It's plain to see... if you look at what God made and what the Devil seeks to Kill and Destroy:
Genesis Chapter One:
26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”

27 So God created human beings in his own image.
    In the image of God he created them;
    male and female he created them.

28 Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”

29 Then God said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food. 30 And I have given every green plant as food for all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, and the small animals that scurry along the ground—everything that has life.” And that is what happened.

31 Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good!
If you think about Satan and his schemes you will see he has ALWAYS come against the VERY GOOD purposes of God at creation.  His first task was to take away Dominion given to man by God thru the Fall... sin.... temptation.  It is how he was able to properly offer "ALL THIS" to Jesus in the desert.

Satan has always hated LIFE..since he lives and eternal death sentence.  So we had Molek and today we have Abortion.  It has become a demonic sacrificial sacrament.

Satan wants to kill any recognition of the divine nature of God in our soul.  That we cannot be what God created us to be.  So he pushes for equality and fairness among all.  Those who reveal the divinity of God are despised.  In their place are idols.  Entertainment.  Sports.  The proclamation of the divine is placed in a box, not on our public squares.

 Now the attempt to create "Families" and "Marriage" that are sterile is his recurring theme.  The purpose of Marriage was always about Fruitful and Multiplication.  Man and woman.  You can't be fruitful and multiply without the man and the woman in union.  IF a union cannot produce children (Fruit) is cannot be called a marriage.  Then what of the Old someone asked. Should seventy year old people be allowed to marry since it will be sterile?   What of Abraham and Sarah?  Even if God intervened as he did with Abraham and Sarah, Abraham and BILL could never have children.

Satan has no new schemes.  He is the master at recycling his old ones.  He is a kill and destroy demon.  So as you look at the Gay Marriage debates... there is no debate.

Marriage that cannot bear fruit because of duplicate gender isn't marriage.  If there are no children possible, there is no marriage.

Things God Has Been Speaking To Me Lately By Lonnie Mackley

26 March, 2013

This is just a compilation of some things that I feel God has been sharing with me lately in order to strengthen and encourage you during this time. So no matter how dark of a time you may be going through right now, just know that the same God that sought you out and saved you is the same God that will lead you through the next phase of what He has called you to do here during this revival.

It's Time to Shed Your Cocoon- Your time of transformation has ended so now you need to be willing to let go of the old lifestyle and surroundings that you have been used to. Some of you may be wanting to eagerly run into the new things that God has for you ahead, but others have found security in what was familiar to them during their wilderness. It's time to take your promised land so get ready for a new adventure and be willing to embrace radical and sometimes “scary” change.

Spiritual Tsunami- Many of you have watched all that you have been used to slowly ebb away until there is little left and this is much like the tide that recedes from a beach. But lately there has been a much more radical receding of what you have relied upon and it may appear like the end, but it is only the beginning of something new and much bigger in your life. Much like all of the water recedes from a beach just before a tsunami hits, this is what you have been experiencing. Very soon a wave of God’s Spirit and everything else you need will hit your life full force in a good way, so take hope.

Love Key- During a time of more intense spiritual warfare, in the Spirit I saw a golden key and on it was written, "Love". The Lord showed me that as this great revival and empowerment comes in its fuller form many people will experience much greater levels of spiritual warfare than normal. The Lord wants you to remember that walking in His love is the key to getting through it without major loss. Use these attacks to master warfare, especially in your homes and marriages. "Love never fails".

Knocking on Heaven's Door- I saw a picture in the Spirit of someone knocking on a door and on it was written "Heaven". There are many people who have left the things of the world and they have been seeking God exclusively for a fresh empowerment and just to spend time fellowshipping with Him. The Lord wants you to not give up or get weary because your efforts are not in vain and you are very close to breaking through and seeing that door open. It has been the Lord leading you.

Stick To Your Vision- There is a television station here named "Vision" that I was watching recently and in it's promo it said, "Stick to your vision". I felt the Lord was saying through it that no matter what may come soon that we must stick to our original vision of preaching the gospel of the kingdom and of getting people saved, healed, delivered, and baptized in the Holy Spirit. As God begins to really move in power soon there will be many temptations and distractions, but the Lord wants you to keep His purposes and directions for you in exclusive focus. Avoid rabbit trails, stay on course.

In Between Worlds- Some of you may feel in between worlds right now because God has been rapidly leading you out of the things of this world and towards a complete kingdom life, so you may be feeling somewhat disoriented and lost right now. The Lord wants you to know that soon you will walk in Heaven and Earth at the same time and now is the time to persevere and to keep pressing into His presence. This is a time to push and not to give up, so hang in there because something very special and good is coming for you very soon if you will keep asking, seeking, and knocking.

Who can KNOW truth... Robert Blackburn

"Who said that you know all of the Truth?" . . How misinformed we can be at times. Nobody, has all of the Truth. But we seemed to think we did. I don't think many of us even realized that the Spirit is Truth. When you think you have "the truth" and no one else does, what you're saying in reality is that you know all there is to know about the Spirit. I often want to ask, just how did we get that way, and tell me why we think God gave us revelation that He had not given to anyone else. I happen to know that there were people who were baptized with the Holy Ghost, years before many of us ever came along but we proclaimed that God gave a special revelation to us that He did not give to them. We dare not say that we deserved it and they didn't. What I do know, is that, the Spirit did not teach us some of those things; men did, and it was only from their own interpretation. This denying the Spirit in other people is not sound teaching; and I believe that many of us will stand to give an account for it one day.

"The Comforter, he shall teach you all things." We know who said that. "The Spirit of Truth will guide you into all truth." We know who said that too. But who was qualified to declare that the Spirit had already taught us everything we needed to know. Ask yourself, how would we ever know everything the Spirit knows; especially if we believe that the Spirit is God. No debate please; we're far past that now. I just learned something five minutes ago, I never saw or heard before. "The anointing teacheth you of all things." The same person said that too. Now, I've always known about following the leading of the Holy Ghost and I know first hand how He can guide you through all kinds of situations and if you follow Him closely, you will see Him accomplish things you never even thought possible. But the idea that the anointing was a teacher! Of course the anointing is a teacher; the true anointing is the Holy Ghost. I've never seen it so clearly that way. That's one reason we know that some of these things people are calling anointed is not; you do not feel the absolute Spirit of the Holy Ghost; you do not feel the real Spirit of Truth. The Master went on to say, "the anointing has taught you." This, is the kind of thing that catches you away into another realm; being taught by the Holy Ghost.

Who said that we had all of the revelation of the Spirit. I am convinced that we would have developed far past what we have if we had clearly understood that, more would be revealed to us as time went along. I was so inspired and humbled today by a dear elder here that has taught us so much; I heard him openly giving praise and thanks for the things the Holy Spirit has taught him in the past few weeks and months. Excuse me! Do you mean that this well seasoned, well studied, well advanced servant of the Lord is still being taught by the Holy Ghost now, and is expressing such joy and unspeakable glory for the revelations the Spirit has continued to give him; in the past few weeks! I thought we already knew it all. No, if I can humble myself some more and say, we didn't know it all. Some of us cannot even read John's Revelation, much less understand what the Spirit was saying to him, and to the church.

It seems obvious to me that the Spirit most definitely didn't teach some men everything they know, because somebody is wrong! The Spirit teaches the Truth; all of it. We forget. What little we know that is right is taught by the Holy Ghost and only through His understanding, not ours. The same gentle elder asked us, "Who taught you what you know?" I'll cut this short. I want the Holy Ghost to teach me what I need to do in the days ahead. I know, with great love and gratitude that He has taught me things in the past; wonderful, marvelous things; there is nothing like it. But I also need a fresh revelation for today, right now. I need Him to lead me and guide me into the truth about where I am today, what my direction is, how I can get closer to Him and what is the truth about my relationship with Him now. I can't live off of what someone told me years ago because, forgive me, some of them told me things that were not true; they told me things that they made up themselves, and I believed them. I shunned people, I cast people aside, without mercy, because I trusted what they told me. And when I studied for myself, when I fasted and prayed, and sought to know what the Spirit actually said about some of those things and I dared to speak up, they destroyed my spirit and they drove me away. Then, I finally knew what the real truth was, and it did not come from them. It came from Him!

I heard that verse about so many of us that needed to be taught all over again. Too many were still on milk, and could not take the meat of the Word, the deeper things of the Spirit. Sadly, the Spirit did not lead and guide us into 'all' truth; why? Because we stopped following. Following others became more important, letting someone else teach us what we needed to know became the easier way. Hear me, with the deepest humility I know; the Spirit fully intended to lead us on into perfection, to guide us into full operation, demonstration and power of the Holy Ghost. The Spirit would have taught us the Gifts, and how to use them; and I mean all of us; not just a chosen, approved few. But, maybe He did teach some of us: Maybe He did continue to lead us and guide us into truths we had never know before. Maybe, even now, the Spirit is even yet opening our eyes to things we never knew, understanding and love we never experienced before. Ask yourself; did the Spirit stop teaching those who were hungry, just because others did not want to know more of the truth? If so, what will we do with what we have been taught. Can we recognize and embrace others that have also been taught and led by the Spirit; seeing in them, what the Spirit sees; loving them the way we were not. How much have we truly learned, and are we ready to finally use what the Spirit has taught us.

Francis Frangipane: The River of God's Pleasure

Francis and Denise FrangipaneThe Clamor of Many Voices
As the days unfold toward Christ's return, a multitude of voices will clamor for our attention. Additionally signs and wonders, judgments and upheaval will also burst into the collective consciousness of man, demanding our focus. Our world will experience the increase of sin and lawlessness, which will further deplete the love of many Christians (Matthew 24:12). If we are true seekers of the Most High, we must beware the contagious nature of an embittered heart. We cannot allow ourselves to be infected by, or conformed to, the attitudes of angry, loveless Christians.
These are the "difficult times" (2 Timothy 3:1) Paul warns about. Yes, our world is full of artificially sweetened, salt-free Christians who are trodden underfoot by men. We must not assume it cannot happen to us. Yet it is in this very environment that our Father has purposed to reveal Christ in us. Even now our destiny is courting our preparation. Let us press toward full transformation!
Created for God's Pleasure
What does it mean to become Christlike? It means we choose to live for one purpose: to give pleasure to God. To accomplish this, we must be intimately acquainted with that in which His soul delights.
Jesus always chose to give God pleasure, even in the midst of conflict and cruelty. Thus when injustice wounds us, we must redeem our experiences with mercy. Let us make the Sermon on the Mount our standard of conduct. Let us discover those ways that will reveal Christ through us and thus bring pleasure to God.
As it is written, "Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created" (Revelation 4:11).
The key to lasting happiness and true fulfillment in this world is not found in self-gratification but in bringing gratification to the heart of God. And while the Lord desires that we enjoy His many gifts, He wants us to know that we are not only created by Him but for Him as well.
A Lay Worker for God
To His neighbors Jesus was just a carpenter's son. Yet to God Jesus was the one pearl of great price. Indeed, before His public ministry began – before there were any miracles or multitudes – yes, as a carpenter, Jesus's devotion to God flooded the Father's heart with pleasure. At the core of His existence, Christ's motive was always to do only those things that pleased the Father (John 8:29).
It was His desire to please the Father that caused Jesus to perfectly fulfill the Law, and it was to please the Father that He went to the Cross. It was not raw zeal for His culture or religion that compelled this carpenter to a sinless life. It was something higher and far more extraordinary: the law of love for God. His passion to give pleasure to the Father was all consuming.
Jordan RiverCould Jesus have heard more wondrous words than the praise spoken by the heavenly Father at the Jordan?
At the sound of the Father's voice the heavens opened, the Spirit descended, and the river of God's pleasure flowed outward to His Son. In words unheard by any human being, the Father spoke: "You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased" (Mark 1:11; Luke 3:22).
A Blue Collar Son of God
Remember, Jesus was still a lay person during this encounter. He had not yet entered public ministry. I am awed as I consider this reality: it was Jesus's life as a tradesman, a "blue-collar worker," that increased the Father's bliss! He did not need miracles and multitudes, or great insights, to touch the Father's heart. He had not yet fasted for forty days.
While accomplishing common, everyday tasks, Jesus flooded God's soul with delight!
CaprenterLikewise those who truly seek God are dedicated to bringing pleasure to their heavenly Father, even in the common tasks of everyday life. Jesus's ability to please God while working a "secular" job tells us God is seeking something from us that is more hidden, more precious, than the things esteemed outwardly by man.
In other words, God delights in that man or woman who serves Him with joy, even when no one is there to observe or impress.
In God's eyes, the origin of true ministry is not found in what we do for Him but in what kind of people we become to Him.
No God-Seeker Is Insignificant to the Father
You who seek the Lord ponder this wondrous privilege: we can bring pleasure to God!
In a world where sin and injustice actually pain the heart of God, with our love and steadfast faith, as we seek God daily, we can please the Father!
To set our goal to reveal Christ is to arouse God's pleasure at its highest level. No one, nor any thing, brings pleasure to the Father as does seeing His Son, even beholding the Spirit of Jesus Christ revealed in us. Each time we submit to Jesus, giving Him access to this world, we please God. Every time Christ forgives or loves or blesses through us, the heart of God finds pleasure in our lives.
In every one of life's varied and challenging situations, let us seek to know how we may reveal Christ. For in the love between the Father and His Son the river of God's pleasure flows.
O God, the thought that my life may bring pleasure to You is so high, I can barely believe it. Lord, look upon me as Your workmanship; create in me that which will most glorify You. Make my life an aroma of thanksgiving that ever brings pleasure to Your heart.
This message was adapted from a chapter in Pastor Frangipane's book, The Days of His Presence.

Sunday, March 24, 2013


Last night, I was on the west side of Chicago.  Off Madison.  Late (about 10).  In a group of people.  A place of waiting.  I didn't go there on purpose, I was just there being who God made me to be.  There were diverse representations of the local community present.  A couple dozen people.  It was one of those "AS YOU GO" moments rather than calling a meeting and asking people to come.  There were a few single women, a few older ladies, a couple moms and dads with babies.  Old men.  Young men who were frustrated. A couple who had been too long in the bubble shop before they showed up, a guy who was still upset about Urlacher being let loose from the bears with the representative jacket, a guy who had been chemically speeded up and was talking faster louder and more profane. There were all  just there.

When the Spirit of God is alive and moving in a person, he or she will be overtaken by that Spirit with unexpected results.  God's attitude towards people, places and things will suddenly become our mindset.  When that happens, a remarkable change takes place.   Many are overcome with compassion towards others in need. Sometimes righteous indignation will rise up against injustice. Sometimes agape love in forgiveness and restoration regardless of someone's failure.  Last night I had a sense of God's heart rise up I had NOT experienced before.

For most of an hour there we were stuck all together in one room.  None of us knowing one another.  Interacting with some tenuousness.  At first it was quiet.  BUT then.. I'm the obvious different one.  Suddenly God spoke to me..."I delight in these, my precious ones".  He didn't simply say He Loved them, that much is certain, but that He DELIGHTS in them.  I was overcome with God's delight and began to flow in His delight.   In Holy Ghost boldness... I let it flow.  Smiles.  Words of encouragement.  Friendly conversation.  Touch.  Mostly the DELIGHT of GOD'S HEART just flowed... and EVERYONE, (even the young man on crack) knew it was happening. 

The atmosphere changed. Joy came.  Spirits lifted.  Happy laughter and chatter. God's delight broke the back of otherness.  I don't get this.  YET... it's wonderful;  God using an older balding white boy from North Dakota to express His delight to His people. I didn't have a Bible, wore no fancy clothes, just expressed God's heart for He loved ones. Maybe it was just for those people gathered there at that time... I don't know.  I do know that it was new to me.  GOD DELIGHTS HIMSELF IN YOU.  He doesn't just love you, he LIKES YOU.  I wanted to tell you that today.

Here's what he said in Zephaniah 3 and said to them last night and says to YOU NOW:

    “Cheer up, Zion! Don’t be afraid!
17 For the Lord your God is living among you.
    He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
    With his love, he will calm all your fears.
    He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

18 “I will gather you who mourn for the appointed festivals;
    you will be disgraced no more.
19 And I will deal severely with all who have oppressed you.
    I will save the weak and helpless ones;
I will bring together
    those who were chased away.
I will give glory and fame to my former exiles,
    wherever they have been mocked and shamed.
20 On that day I will gather you together
    and bring you home again.
I will give you a good name, a name of distinction,
    among all the nations of the earth,
as I restore your fortunes before their very eyes.
    I, the Lord, have spoken!”

Rick Joyner: The Ultimate Victory

Rick JoynerThe sure word of prophecy reveals that we are heading fast toward the ultimate battle between light and darkness. It is the highest privilege and honor just to live in these times, but we have a much higher purpose than to just endure the times – we are here to participate in the greatest victory since the Cross – the ultimate victory of light over darkness.
We see this in such places as Isaiah 60:1-3:
"Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you, and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising."
Light winsSo we see that at the time when darkness is covering the earth, and deep darkness the peoples, the glory of the Lord will rise on His people. The result will be that the nations will turn to the light. The light wins, not the darkness. This will happen through the strongest Christians whose lives have been built on the strongest of all foundations that will not shake through all that is coming. The strongest Christians will always be the best disciples, because this is the path to maturity in Christ.
The greatest victory of light over darkness will forever be the Cross of Jesus. There will never be a greater example of God's love and His character than the Cross. If we are to be like Him and do the works that He did, we too must take up our crosses daily to follow Him, laying down our own lives for His sake and for the sake of those He died for (see Luke 9:23).
The ultimate demonstration of the love of God and the power of good over evil is the Cross. As we see in the Book of Revelation, Jesus will be forever known as the Lamb. He said that there was no greater love than one who laid down his life for his friends (see John 15:13), but Jesus did more than lay down His life. He emptied Himself of His divine nature to become one of us and lived in one of the most difficult places, in one of the smallest and most despised nations. Every day that He was on the earth was a major sacrifice, and then He made the ultimate one by embracing the torture and humiliation that He did for us.
Certainly, to be identified with Jesus and His sacrifice is the ultimate honor one could ever have, not just on the earth, but throughout the entire creation of God and eternity. This is our ultimate calling, our ultimate honor, and the basic responsibility of His disciples. As He said in Luke 14:27:
"Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple."
The true Christian life, which is to be a disciple of Christ, is a life of sacrifice. It is a life of the most basic commitment to seek and to do His will, not our own. It was on the Cross that Jesus suffered the ultimate injustice, but He did not retaliate, or ask the Father to retaliate, but rather to forgive. This is one of the most difficult tasks for any human being, but it is the basic responsibility of the disciple – to forsake retaliation when it may be just, and to forgive instead.
The CrossAs the battle between light and darkness unfolds, our victory is not the destruction of our enemies, but their salvation. Jesus went to the Cross to save the very ones who had persecuted Him, and even for those who were torturing Him. As Christians, we may often resolve to forgive but secretly hope for justice from the Lord, but Jesus went beyond that. He did not want the Father to get even for Him – He even asked the Father to forgive them. That is ultimate forgiveness and ultimate love.
Forgiveness can be one of the most difficult of all things to do, but it is the most basic discipline of Christianity and the surest sign of Christian maturity. As we are told to take up our crosses daily to follow Him, we should also daily look for opportunities to forgive.
Many believe that they do not have to forgive until the person who did them wrong repents. That is not what Jesus did. He forgave us when we were yet in our sin. Some later acknowledged His great mercy and others did not, but He forgave them anyway, and we must do this.
Forgiving someone does not mean that they will not have consequences for their sin. Other spiritual laws apply here, such as Galatians 6:7, "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap." However, it is our basic calling as priests to intercede for those who transgress, seeking grace and mercy on their behalf.
The law that we will reap what we sow also works on our behalf when we forgive others. If we want to reap mercy, we must learn to sow mercy every chance we get. If we want to reap grace, we must sow grace every chance we get. The life of the Cross gives us daily opportunities to sow grace and mercy, and as we are able to do this, we too will reap the same.

Was JESUS speaking to our Day?? Look at the highlights

Religious Fashion Shows

Matthew 23 The Message Bible Translation  (Jesus Speaks to the Religious Professionals of his Day)

23 1-3 Now Jesus turned to address his disciples, along with the crowd that had gathered with them. “The religion scholars and Pharisees are competent teachers in God’s Law. You won’t go wrong in following their teachings on Moses. But be careful about following them. They talk a good line, but they don’t live it. They don’t take it into their hearts and live it out in their behavior. It’s all spit-and-polish veneer.

4-7 “Instead of giving you God’s Law as food and drink by which you can banquet on God, they package it in bundles of rules, loading you down like pack animals. They seem to take pleasure in watching you stagger under these loads, and wouldn’t think of lifting a finger to help. Their lives are perpetual fashion shows, embroidered prayer shawls one day and flowery prayers the next. They love to sit at the head table at church dinners, basking in the most prominent positions, preening in the radiance of public flattery, receiving honorary degrees, and getting called ‘Doctor’ and ‘Reverend.’

8-10 “Don’t let people do that to you, put you on a pedestal like that. You all have a single Teacher, and you are all classmates. Don’t set people up as experts over your life, letting them tell you what to do. Save that authority for God; let him tell you what to do. No one else should carry the title of ‘Father’ (DAD); you have only one Father, and he’s in heaven. And don’t let people maneuver you into taking charge of them. There is only one Life-Leader for you and them—Christ.

11-12 “Do you want to stand out? Then step down. Be a servant. If you puff yourself up, you’ll get the wind knocked out of you. But if you’re content to simply be yourself, your life will count for plenty.


13 “I’ve had it with you! You’re hopeless, you religion scholars, you Pharisees! Frauds! Your lives are roadblocks to God’s kingdom. You refuse to enter, and won’t let anyone else in either.

15 “You’re hopeless, you religion scholars and Pharisees! Frauds! You go halfway around the world to make a convert, but once you get him you make him into a replica of yourselves, double-damned.

16-22 “You’re hopeless! What arrogant stupidity! You say, ‘If someone makes a promise with his fingers crossed, that’s nothing; but if he swears with his hand on the Bible, that’s serious.’ What ignorance! Does the leather on the Bible carry more weight than the skin on your hands? And what about this piece of trivia: ‘If you shake hands on a promise, that’s nothing; but if you raise your hand that God is your witness, that’s serious’? What ridiculous hairsplitting! What difference does it make whether you shake hands or raise hands? A promise is a promise. What difference does it make if you make your promise inside or outside a house of worship? A promise is a promise. God is present, watching and holding you to account regardless.

23-24 “You’re hopeless, you religion scholars and Pharisees! Frauds! You keep meticulous account books, tithing on every nickel and dime you get, but on the meat of God’s Law, things like fairness and compassion and commitment—the absolute basics!—you carelessly take it or leave it. Careful bookkeeping is commendable, but the basics are required. Do you have any idea how silly you look, writing a life story that’s wrong from start to finish, nitpicking over commas and semicolons?

25-26 “You’re hopeless, you religion scholars and Pharisees! Frauds! You burnish the surface of your cups and bowls so they sparkle in the sun, while the insides are maggoty with your greed and gluttony. Stupid Pharisee! Scour the insides, and then the gleaming surface will mean something.

27-28 “You’re hopeless, you religion scholars and Pharisees! Frauds! You’re like manicured grave plots, grass clipped and the flowers bright, but six feet down it’s all rotting bones and worm-eaten flesh. People look at you and think you’re saints, but beneath the skin you’re total frauds.

29-32 “You’re hopeless, you religion scholars and Pharisees! Frauds! You build granite tombs for your prophets and marble monuments for your saints. And you say that if you had lived in the days of your ancestors, no blood would have been on your hands. You protest too much! You’re cut from the same cloth as those murderers, and daily add to the death count.

33-34 “Snakes! Reptilian sneaks! Do you think you can worm your way out of this? Never have to pay the piper? It’s on account of people like you that I send prophets and wise guides and scholars generation after generation—and generation after generation you treat them like dirt, greeting them with lynch mobs, hounding them with abuse.


While I may not share his love for laws in the church, I find this interesting.  I do believe that Holiness is a key to revival.  Read this and see what you think:

It was probably 5 yrs. ago the Lord spoke to me and said,”The next and great revival will be a Holiness revival.”Immediately in my mind I pictured the old time Pentecostal Revival. Strictness about length of hair, a dress code, no TV and the list goes on and on. (Note) I still believe in those old Pentecostal by-laws. As these thoughts went through my mind, the Lord spoke and said it is not as you think.

This Holiness Revival will only come because I will take my people into myself—My Holiness—My Holy of Holies—My Glory. This will cause my people to live a Holy life. This will bring my people into worship in the spirit that is in me.

This will cause the fear of God, of my greatness. This will cause true love onto and into me. This will cause the death of flesh. This will cause sin to cease.

Please listen to the things that the Lord has shown me by keeping by-laws, commandments as a duty or rule or code without love is nothing more than putting lipstick, perfume & high heels on a pig. It is and was a waste of time. Why? That pig does not love that lipstick, perfume, a dress & high heels. The love of that pig will take it back into the slop that he loves. So we see it is worthless to make someone to keep laws, commandments, duties, rules, codes without love unto the Lord.

But on the other hand (If) one loves God with all their heart, all his soul, all his mind, all his strength, that person will keep and do all the strictness, length of hair, dress code laws and by-laws, codes, commandments, duties and rules. Because of true love, I truly believe the reason the church is not living a Holy life is because there’s no intimate relationship with the Lord, that is worship, in the Holy of Holies.

The statement that I’ve got to say is this; most of the so called church will mock at this message. Why? They don’t want no part of it. Why? They have chosen to love flesh and its desires.

Will you be part of this Holiness Revival? The Lord will pull on every last one of you and I. Will we yield? To live in the flesh and fulfill all the desires of the flesh and then expect the Lord to move in the spirit, is plain out stupid.

Signs, Wonders and Miracles only happen and come to pass when that person walks, hears, sees and worships in the spirit of the Holy Ghost, not walking, hearing and seeing and fulfilling the lust and desires of the flesh. The flesh must be crucified, how, by Holy hunger, prayer, fasting, his Holy word, praying in the spirit, that is to say praying in tongues, not in the flesh and to smother ourselves in worship music, not praise, and to seek out true worshipers of the Lord. Not fleshly so called Christians, and to totally, wholly, completely give ourselves and all that pertains as onto us, to the Lord. This will cause us to enter into an intimate love relationship even as Moses, Isaiah, Elijah, Elisha and other Holy men of God that move in the spirit of God with Signs, Wonders & Miracles, to prove the God of Abraham, Isaac,& Jacob is the True God. The Spirit of God says COME!

A great answer to a hungry heart

 A seeker asks:

Did jesus ever say that he loves us?

Id like to believe he did, only because every christian claims to KNOW and be firm on the fact that jesus loves us unconditionally....but is there even one time that jesus himself says "i love you." ??? This is really bothering me.. I just feel like so many ppl try to shove that down your throat when ur having a hard time, but i dont feel love from him anymore. And the fact that i cant open up my bible and read jesus telling me himself that he loves me just doesnt cut it.  RACHEL


Jesus' actions show that he truly loves us. He suffered and died on the cross because of his love for us.
Please find below some verses as per your request: "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another" John 13:34
"Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him." John 14:21
"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love." John 15:9
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Rom 5:8

I have come to the conclusion that Jesus Christ (as presented in the Bible) is the clearest revelation & manifestation of the One True God. This conviction arises out of a combination of intellectual & scientific evidence in addition to experiential evidence (prayers answered; peace; presence of God etc) and mystical experience. Jesus is God in human form. Jesus is not a created being; Jesus always existed as God -- but, he voluntarily took an ‘inferior’ form, the form of a man, to effect our salvation. He provides us:
• a way out of darkness
• satisfaction, an end to our inner thirst
• direction in life
• payment for our sin
• abundant life
• forgiveness of sin
• eternal life
For evidence for the historicity and truth of Jesus Christ, and for articles dealing with his Deity, see…

And to commit your life to Christ ...
• Human beings are created with a "God-shaped vacuum" in our hearts/ minds/ souls -- and religions attempt to fill this vacuum. We are designed to be fulfilled when living in relationship with God.
• All of us have fallen short of the beauty-of-character that God wants for his children. (Romans 3:23). Because of sin we are separated from God. (Romans 6:23)
• God loves you so much that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins. If you commit your life to Christ based on this, you can be in relationship with God today, and in the life to come... (John 3:16)
• God invites you to join his family. Will you open the door (of your heart) and invite Jesus in? (Revelation 3:20)
• I was given this invitation. I responded, and as I investigated the evidence, I gradually came to intellectual (and experiential) certainty of God's existence. I ended up committing my life to Christ (based on his death on the cross, for me), and I walk now in relationship with the God of the Universe.
• I invite you to do the same.

Remember you now have a friend who sticks closer than a brother. ( Prov 18:24) and that is Jesus Christ. Jesus is the best and most faithful friend you could have. He loves you more than you can ever imagine. In John 6:37 he says, “Whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” I Pet 5:7 says, “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” He provides us: a way out of darkness,satisfaction, an end to our inner thirst,direction in life,payment for our sin,abundant life,forgiveness of sin,eternal life

He can provide you peace of mind. In Phil 4:6-8 he says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” This has helped me in the past. When feelings of rejection come to me, I repeat Philippians 4:6-7 (which is God's promise of Peace through Jesus Christ), and the Lord's prayer while focusing my mind on God.These help me to come back to the assurance of a loving parent child relationship with God.

Finally, commit all things in your life to God in prayer. Jesus prayed often. If He thought of prayer as important, how can we (who need so much more help than He did) afford to think of prayer as any less important? Mark 1:35, Luke 5:16, 6:12. When we pray, we have the peace of knowing that we have committed our problems to a trustworthy God and Father. Philippians 4:4-7.
For assurance that you are a Christian see:…


The Trap of Vain Speculation

O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called "knowledge "-- 1 Timothy 6:20

Refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels. 2 Timothy 2:23

Don't waste time in endless discussion of myths and spiritual pedigrees. These things only lead to meaningless speculations, which don't help people live a life of faith in God.  1 Timothy 1:4

Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. 1 Timothy 4:7

They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions 1 Timothy 6:4

They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.  2 Timothy 4:4

This was all written by Paul to the Church at Ephesus and to Titus in Crete.  Evidently the church was full of people who were conspiracy theorists.  Who loved to think about what might be, who is doing what, what the evil one is up to, how deceived we all are by believing this or that. 

Today we have exactly the same things going on.  I have never seen so many otherwise scripturally sound Christians so bound up in conspiracy theories.  I have fallen prey to them.  Fortunately I escape again and again.  Every time I get better and better at spotting the baloney.

These vain speculations are the devils way of keeping our eye off the ball.. expanding the kingdom.

The most rampant speculation is the end time, rapture, tribulation, antichrist and left behind premillenial speculations.  I am asked all the time about if I believe Iran is going to attack Israel or not.  If the antichrist is alive today... (the answer is yes, but now how you think, see the epistles of John for more).

The more the devil can keep us wound up looking for the sky to split, the less we will be at work in the kingdom. 

IF I could somehow speak to the whole body of Christ, I would say, STOP THE VAIN SPECULATION.

When you receive a lie, it puts you in chains.....  only the truth will set you free.  Seek after Him.

Even the Buddah understood this... I think he got it from the Bible.. but he said it well: "Let us not lose ourselves in vain speculations of profitless subtleties; let us surrender self and all selfishness, and as all things are fixed by causation, let us practice good so that good may result from our actions".

Agape Love Trumps Spiritual Cannibalism

God has been dealing with me about how we treat each other in the Body of Christ. We call ourselves brothers and sisters and yet we cut an devour each other with anger, criticism, indignities, accusations, gossip, tale-bearing, untruths and innuendo.

The devil doesn't need much help, he has "Christians" to do his work for him.

You only have to go back to the beginning of the book to see the trouble dissension and accusation caused.  Korah is a good example.  God Judged Korah for his rebellion.

BUT BUT BUT it is argued, who is going to warn the innocents when deception comes.  I don't think that is a problem.  We have plenty of heresy hunters devouering the Body like Cannibals eating their own fingers.  That's the imagery that the Lord gave me this morning.

Galatians 5:13-15 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another. 

Yes, there is a place for rebuke, for indignation, but it is far less frequent than you would believe.  IF there is contention or division over an accusation, for example, if someone accuses a leader of not being "ON" and there are many who trust the word he or she is bringing then the first question should not be are they "Biblical, preaching the truth" (whatever they think it to be), the question should be, is the Kingdom of God expanding because of this?

Certainly there are people on TV, Radio and who preach in pulpits that I don't embrace.  There are books that I find offensively strange in Bookstores.  I can barely listen to our local christian radio station for the drivel I find there so often.  YET.. I remember when that drivel helped me grow in Christ.

Galatians 6:1 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.

IF some well meaning heresy hunter had told me "That's EVIL, that's not the Gospel"  I might have drifted away discouraged. Scattered.   God hates those who destroy the flock.

 Therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel concerning the shepherds who are tending My people: "You have scattered My flock and driven them away, and have not attended to them; behold, I am about to attend to you for the evil of your deeds," declares the LORD.  Jeremiah 23:2

I remember well Pastor Dan telling some of us the story about a young couple who came to First Assembly.  They were involved in Drugs and all kinds of unspeakable corrupt lifestyles.  When they got saved they became true followers of Jesus.  Pastor Dan sometimes would bring controversial people in to minister.  Some I found hard to take.  YET... when I asked him about it, he said, we have to stretch and learn to hear for ourselves truth by discernment.    That young couple was pummeled by their "Christian" friends and relatives for being part of the Church we attendees.  At one point the comment was made to them, "I would rather you be back on drugs then be part of "That Church".

There is the heart of the heresy hunter.  They cooperate with the devil who would rather see people in HELL than be disciples by someone they don't approve of.  Jesus identified this evil.

"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to make one proselyte, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as fit for hell as you are! Matthew 23:15

In that way they are instruments of satan.

IS there a place to warn people from false doctrine.  Sure... by preaching and teaching real doctrine.  I got home late last night.  It was dark in the bedroom.  I reached for the light switch.  Flipped it on and guess what... the darkness fled.  Happens every time it's tried.  Shine the light of truth without attacking the darkness.

2 Timothy 3:16  All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,

Unless the power is off.  That's the rub.  The Heresy Hunters deny the power of God to reveal himself.  Jesus didn't rebuke false teaching, he rebuked false living.  False holiness.  False godliness.  Hypocrisy. White Washed Tombs he called them.

Here's a prophetic truth I learned a long time ago, God cares much more about the sheep in his pasture than the shepherds who lead them.  He will hold that shepherd to a much higher standard.  He will take a shepherd out who is leading falsely.  He will use the Syrians to cleanse Israel.  He doesn't need a competing shepherd to devour the Body.  We have a Syrian type news media that will be happy to turn on the Kleig lights and expose the false teachers.  That's not our job.

There are Millstones being laid up for those who are causing the little ones to stumble.  It would be good not to have your name on one.

 Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.  Matthew 18:6

Kim Clement: A Revolution Like Never Before

Kim ClementFebruary 27, 2013 – From The Matrix:
Carman, we make declaration from the Spirit of God. The years and years that you have spent giving and sowing and blessing millions of lives – is this the end? Is this the end of your voice? That's the question; it's not the cancer or the sickness. Is this the end? You know well how to fight; you know well how to fight in the Spirit. Is this the end of your season? And you have righteously said, "If this is it, I'll go fighting the devil until the very last day." But is God able to extend the years of your life? As David said, "He is the God who causes us to escape death."
Carman Domenic LicciardelloLord, I'm praying for an escape from death. I'm praying, Lord God, for an escape from death. This is a vital and precious voice, and Lord, if You could do it for somebody else, You can do it for us. We need testimonies of healing from cancer that must come in so it can be repeated upon this life and the lives of many, many people all over the world that have received a prognosis about their future, about the cancer in their lives, or whatever it is.
Lord, I break the power of the words. I don't break the power of cancer; I break the power of fear of cancer and fear of death. Lord, You know that You are able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or imagine. I pray for him. The Warriors stand together and we call for Carman right now, not because he's a celebrity, God, but because he's a human life with a gift that You've preserved for this day and for this age. I pray for that transfiguration to take place, Lord God, and we thank You for doing it in the name of Christ, and we declare that he shall escape death. In the name of Christ!

Billionaires, Philanthropists
Ninety-nine percent of the Body of Christ, the people of the Kingdom, can't think in terms of billions. I said, "Why are You telling me this?" He said, "Because I want to raise up billionaires."
I said, "How are You going to do it?" And He said, "It's in the earth, it's in the sky, it's in the trees. It's out there; you must prophesy it so they can become part of this troop of people that are going to take the Kingdom by force and not worry about money."
You are those people! You may say, "Well, Kim, that's impossible." Don't ever say impossible; don't even say "Kimpossible." I want you to say, "It is possible." "Kim, you're stretching my mind. This is never going to happen." Yes, there are some of you sitting out there, you're going to make small investments into some of the things that are out there and billions of dollars are going to be made. If you really believe that is a word from God today, you're going to sow and give it.
You may say, "Kim, I cannot see that. I need $5 to..." Do you think every billionaire started with billions? And I want to tell you something – this ministry is going to become a billion dollar concern. I'm speaking it out because it's going to happen. Hear me loud and clear – billions and billions. Why? Because once we've paid our administrative costs, we are going to give the rest away. We are going to become the first philanthropist prophetic ministry! I'm going to take that as a prophecy for myself! This is going to be the first prophetic philanthropist ministry. Let me say this again, because it has a great feel. I'm saying it because whatever happens to a spiritual leader happens to the people. Whatever takes place in your leader happens to you. It's a spiritual effect; it happens. And this is what I want you to understand. The word of the Lord has come to me now and I'm going to prophesy it.
God says, "If you can smell poverty, then you are not smelling what I am, for what is coming to My nostrils," says the Spirit, "is a fragrance of prosperity, and it begins by taking poverty out of your soul, by taking poverty out of your praise, by taking poverty out of your prayers, by taking poverty out of your knowledge, by taking poverty out of your speech. Once you do that and you replace all these areas with prosperity in your thinking and in your speaking, so there will be a gravitation. It's the law of attraction – a gravitation – and doors shall open up to you. You shall see where to invest."
And God said, "Once you've begun investing in the Kingdom, I'll show you the places where you'll dig wells, and they will say, 'This well belongs to me; that well belongs to him.'" God says, "I'll cause you to dig your own well like Isaac did, and as a result of it, he had his own prosperity and he put his name there." God says, "I want you to put your name on your well, and there shall be a well of prosperity that shall come forth even in the midst of poverty." This is the Word of the Lord. "And to you, Kim, you shall be one of the philanthropists that are prophetic in the Kingdom of God and give, and give, and give!"

March 2, 2013 - From The Den:

"I See Darkness Falling; You Are Struck With Light"
(Prophetic Song)
Your word is like a fire throughout the earth!
His word is like a fire, so have no fear!
I can see something fall like lightning;
I can see something fall like lightning from Heaven!
I can see something fall, darkness falling!
Light, light, light!
His word is like a light, His word is like a light!
I can see something falling from Heaven right now!
I can see something fall like lightning,
I said, struck by light! I said, struck by light!
I'm going to speak to the principalities of the air right now.
You are struck by light!
You are struck with light!
To the forces of principalities of evil throughout this marble, I want you to know
God's word is like a fire, His word is light.
You are struck with light! You are struck with light! You are struck with light!
You are struck with light!

A Revolution Like Never Before
The Spirit of God says, "Prepare yourself, Planet Earth, for that which I did in the '60s and the '70s, I have revealed that this is that time again; but it shall not be like then, where it is restricted to just a few continents. This movement," says the Lord, "will begin again in California, and there shall be an economic boost in California. And they shall say, 'But why California? Is it not the Hell-hole of America?'"California
And God said, I don't care what it is; I will take the economy of California and show America that I will take the foolish things of this world to confound the wise, that I will take the known things of this world to make My light shine. And America shall look at California and say, 'It's impossible. Look at the economy rising up.' And I shall rejoice, for it shall not be as a result of the economists, but it shall be as a result of the movement that is beginning to take place, likened unto the Jesus Movement.
"It shall begin with the Hispanic people, for the Hispanics shall say, 'We must go into the streets, to the highways, to the byways, to the backstreet alleys, into the prisons.' And suddenly, all throughout West L.A., it shall spread, and spread, and spread from house to house, from prison to prison. I shall reveal Myself, and a movement shall explode, not only here, but in America.
"And there shall be young people, and they shall invent and they shall compose, and they shall say, 'What must we do next?' They shall take over the Internet; they will take over the Internet, and then it shall go viral, and they shall say, 'Jesus is cool!' They shall speak that name. And it shall go from house to house, and My fire shall consume the criminal activities in California, and then it shall spread to New York, then it shall spread to the south, and I will unbuckle the Bible belt; I will unbuckle the belt that is in the Bible belt, and they shall explode with joy, for this nation is ready for the greatest breakthrough ever, and it shall be called a revolution like never before!"

It's Beginning Already
[This is] what I saw when I was captured and I went between time and space and eternity: It was like I was going through a curtain, through a doorway. And I saw things and I heard things, and I said, "But Lord, so many have looked with disdain upon California; so many have looked with disdain upon America, and yet You have spoken kind words through me. Why did you send me to this nation – why did you send me to end my life in California?"
And as I was praying, the Spirit began to show me things. I saw emblems for the prosperity of His people. "Your soul must prosper first," He said, "before anything else can prosper. The soul of this nation has been wounded, not from outside but from inside. Self-infliction upon the soul of this nation. For I stand not in the presence of good only, but I stand in the presence of evil. The angel came to Daniel; he said, 'O, greatly beloved.' Then he came again and he said, 'O, highly esteemed, Daniel.' When he came to Gideon, he said to him, 'Mighty man of valor.'"
I heard these words, good words, from Malech Yahweh [the Angel of the Lord]; I heard these words coming from Him: "The Angel of the Lord has been commanded by the light of the people who are praying; He has been summoned by the people, and He is resting His feet upon nations while the battle rages, setting a flame to those who are ready."
I heard Him speak of this nation and other nations that He has chosen – Asia, singled out by demonic powers to cripple this nation. I say, "Ha!" I laugh at them who would think that the Spirit of the Lord that brings liberty would be so easy to trick.
Asia"Asia, you and your young ones in North Korea, South Korea, in India, China, Hong Kong and all the regions of the Far East to the Middle East will link up with young people in America. This revolution shall spread, and the sounds will be so unique that it is undeniable; and church leaders will stand up and condemn it, as they've done before. For the soul of this nation is agitated. 'Where does our energy come from?' Have I not told you? The time is coming and now is where it shall be revealed, but how unusual shall it happen."
I saw emblems; I saw two crowns. I saw two crowns, golden crowns – an investment. I saw two big leaves, and they were blended together. And then something unusual happened. I was taken into the atmosphere and I saw the formation of a planet. I'm not even sure in my own mind what this means; I don't know, I'm not that bright, but I saw planets being formed – planets that were not that will be, and in their formation, a strange light and an energy. "They shall say, 'There is no such thing as that planet,' but it is something that is being formed at this very moment for the purpose of My people. You are that important to Me," says the Lord, "that I would do something that is not yet and bring from it and fashion that which will make you and your children prosperous. Do you believe that I'm able to do it?" Come on!
It's beginning already, come on. It's beginning already throughout the earth! You're not even seeing it, but in the streets of L.A., the streets of San Francisco, I'm moving! My light is moving throughout the earth! Another Jesus revolution!

Your Instruments Are Being Sharpened
I hear the sound of fear. It is not amongst the angels of God. The hosts of darkness and evil and wickedness that have made plans, that have made plans for this time and this generation, they say of you, O Israel, they say of you, O Church, "You have your instruments but they are blunt. How shall you conduct a warfare with instruments, with weapons that are blunt? Would you like to come to the land of the Philistines, as Israel did in times past, to sharpen your instruments? You would never venture here; you're afraid to move outside of your walls!"
Thus says Malech Yahweh, the Angel of God, "Not so with this generation! They shall go to the land of the Philistines to sharpen their weapons. They will use whatever means it takes – singing, preaching, artwork, dancing. They will use whatever instrument they can, and yes, they will let the world sharpen it. Yes, they will let the land of the Philistines sharpen the instruments that they will use against them to destroy them. What I say to you and answer to these Warriors that are about to emerge from the earth, the 4-, 5-, 6-, 7-year-olds, children being attacked, I'll tell you what: They are going to go to the land of the Philistines with their blunt instruments and you will sharpen it for them so they can do the battle and wage the battle against you."
What do you see about us, Angel of Light?
Suddenly I'm seeing something. People all over the world in these cities like Syria and Iran, Iraq, Egypt. They're doing a strange shaking sort of dance. It's emerging from New York, and they are using this as a sign of their freedom. And though I do not see the Spirit of the Lord resting upon this, He shall take it and convert a dance so unusual – they're shaking around each other – and God said, "I will transform that, and just their dance will cause a reaction amongst leaders, amongst people, and it shall spread and spread and spread. What you're hearing is a combination of eastern, middle eastern music, and western music; just the beginning."

Prophecy Is Like a Tapestry: Vision of the Two Crowns and Something To Invest In
For instance, the two crowns I saw, it was something to invest in – it was an investment, a huge one. People can start researching that now. Actually, it was two crowns. I want to draw it because it has – what do you call that thing on top of the crown, the spike? What do you call it? Whatever that is, there's a certain number of them, and then I saw the two leaves together.
On the Day of Pentecost, there were people from every nation and there was a sound that came to those people from Heaven. I feel like this is going to happen again, but in a global way – not just in an upper room in Jerusalem – but throughout the earth, where God will take all the nations that He's mentioned here and cause a sound to come. You just watch what He's going to do – a massive, global move of the Spirit which will start – actually, I saw it starting with the Hispanic, with the Spanish people, and then moving through and catching on. So it's a very interesting prophecy that I got when I saw that day.

Time is up. The lines have now been drawn. by Kevin Barrett

During my time with the Lord, He said these words to me: Son, write this down and warn My people.

Word of the Father:

My people, hear Me this day.  Know that My love for you all is great and everlasting.  Nevertheless, I have called and I have warned for you all to repent of your lukewarmness, complacency and conformity to this world.  Some of you have listened to My warnings and repented and prepared for My judgments.  Though many of you have scorned My prophets that I have sent to warn My people.  Many of you say in your heart that these things shall not come to you.  Others believe that you shall be raptured out of the earth before these things come.

But hear Me this day, My people.  I come to you now to say that time is up. The lines have now been drawn.  Those on the side of humility and repentance shall be spared as a father spares his own son that serves him.  But for those that have not heeded My warnings to repent shall now lament.  For My judgments have been issued forth and it is now just a matter of time before it materializes and strikes in the natural realm.

My dear children, I have cried and cried out to you all to repent.  But many of you in your stubborn and self-righteous hearts have scorned My warnings.  Many of you believe that you are right with Me merely because you call upon My son’s name.  But I tell you now, unless you have repented fully in your hearts and turned your life completely over to My son, and bear your cross to your own self-will, you shall not be pleased in the short near future.  For My wrath has been stored up for this day.  And all that are haughty shall be burned up like chaff.

This shall not all happen in one day, for if it did, none would be left on the earth.  But for the sake of the elect, this shall happen within this season of the last days so that those that will turn, shall.  And those that refuse to turn at My reproof shall suffer greatly in these days.  It matters not if you call yourself by My name, My little ones.  ONLY those that do My will shall be spared in these last days.  For I shall have a people who walk with their God in the earth realm and have My laws written upon their hearts.  And I shall remove their heart of stone and give them a heart of MY flesh.  Yes, My children, I speak another mystery to you this day.  There is flesh that is of My Spirit, made by My hands, and it is not a flesh after the flesh of man.  For what is born of My Spirit is of the Spirit, and that which is born of the flesh of man is after the flesh of man.

Oh, My dear little ones, how I weep for many of you.  You do not know or understand what is at your doorstep.  Life as you know it shall never be the same again when this thing happens.  Yes, there will still be businesses and governments as there is now.  But hear Me, My little ones.  It shall not be run by the ruling of man as it is now.  For I shall rise up within My people and declare a standard.  And all that do not yield to this standard shall be both filled and ruled by the gross darkness coming upon this world.

Oh, but many of you say in your heart; “I am a Christian, therefore darkness shall not overtake me.”  But I say to you this day, was it not those that called themselves by My name that were filled with the spirit of murder and crucified My son?  And so shall it be again in these last days.  Many that call themselves by My name shall crucify My son’s body once again.  However this time, it shall be the body of believers that are filled with My Spirit.  But just like in the crucifixion of My son, they shall not kill My body of believers, but My people shall willingly give up their lives into My hands.  And when this is done, I shall rise up within My people and they shall no longer live by their own will, but it shall be ME that will dwell in them and give them life.  And when this happens, there shall not be any devil or power from hell that can stop My people from doing My will in the earth.  And they shall do great exploits in My name.

Get ready, My people.  For all this is coming and it shall surely come to pass.  I love you, My people, and do not desire that any should perish.  But hear Me, and hear Me well.  Those that have not repented and yielded their will to Me shall now lament and wail.  But it is not the end yet.  I shall show mercy to those that will repent in these last days, provided that you will not be taken in judgment before your opportunity to repent.  Therefore, hear Me now.  It does not matter what side of the line you are now on, there will be grace to repent and get on the right side of the line, all up until the time that I once again say; “It is finished.”  And then there shall be no more grace for repentance.  However, hear Me well when I say repent now, for as the world spirals further into darkness, it will become more and more difficult for one to repent and thus cross over to the side of My kingdom.

Malachi 3:17  “They shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him.

Malachi 4:1  “For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble. The day that is coming shall set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.

Ezekial 36:26  And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.

Revelations 22:11  Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.”

Death and Birth of a Vision by Os Hillman

"I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." - John 12:24 

Almost every significant thing God births He allows to die before the vision is fulfilled in His own way.
-Abraham had a vision of being the father of a great nation (birth). Sarah was barren and became too old to have children (death). God gave Abraham and Sarah a son in their old age. He became the father of a great nation (fulfillment). -Joseph had a vision that he would be a great leader and that many would bow down to him (birth). Joseph's brothers sold him to some merchants and he became a slave. Later he was falsely condemned to spend his years in prison (death). God allowed Joseph to interpret the dreams of the butler and baker and later the king, whereupon, he was made a ruler in the land (fulfillment).
-Moses had a vision of leading his people out of the bondage of Egypt (birth). Pharaoh as well as his own people drove Moses out of Egypt after Moses' first attempt to relieve their bondage (death). God gave Moses signs and wonders to convince Pharaoh to free the people and bring them out of Egypt and into the Promised Land (fulfillment).
-The disciples had a vision of establishing the Kingdom of God with Jesus (birth). The very ones He came to save killed Jesus, and the disciples saw Him buried in a tomb (death). God raised Jesus from the dead, and the disciples performed great miracles until the gospel had spread through all the world (fulfillment).
-A grain of wheat has a "vision" of reproducing itself and many more grains of wheat (birth). The grain dies in the ground (death). A harvest springs up out of the very process of "death" in the ground (fulfillment).
Has God given you a vision that is yet unfulfilled? If that vision is born of God, He will raise it up in His own way. Do not try to raise the vision in your own strength. Like Moses, who tried to fulfill the vision of freeing the Hebrews by killing the Egyptian, it will only fail. But wait on your heavenly Father to fulfill the vision. Then you will know that it was His vision when He fulfills it in the way only He can do. Today God Is First (TGIF) devotional message, Copyright by Os Hillman, Marketplace Leaders.

From Dr. Matthew Stevenson

I feel a strong prompting to encourage Visionaries and Senior Leaders with the following principle. If you are a leader of leaders or one who has responsibility with raising people up, Don't ignore this. It could be a matter of life and death!

The pig, is historically seen as the most unclean and non discriminate beast of the entire realm of creation. Similar to rats, the pig has no regard for its consumption. It sees equal value in everything, as long as it pleases its own appetite. It gives no regard to how it appears, what it eats, the quality of its survival or anything else, and can only domestically and peaceably co-exist and partner, with its own kind. Slop, filth and large amounts of it, are what causes its happiness to peak. Other peoples food, materials and used matter is what satisfies its search and seek. Because of the swine nature, anything that is worth real value should never be given to them. The costly, the rare, the uncommon should never be invested in them or their living space, simply because the thing that you give them, even if you've spent your entire life or a large sum of money to pay for it, will find its fate, it the exact pile of slop, as the other things, the pigs have been accustomed to valuing, or not so much. All this to say, it makes you really measure your investments, disciples, proteges, and efforts to people really intently when you hear the words of our Lord, the master "Leader-Breeder" as He echoes to His initial students saying in Matthew 7:6

""Don't waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don't throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you."

If you have felt like you have been in the attack of the killer pigs, perhaps you should sow, teach, preach, counsel, invest, and make time for those that you know have a VALUE for your pearls. You have paid a heavy price for what rests on you, don't allow some irreverent, to make demands on you or your time for impartation and then attack you because they couldn't discern the thousands of pearls, you gave them the chance to reflect on and value. Let someone else raise up and tame pigs. LOVE THEM, but let them be somebody else s work. YOU....need to focus on your imperfect, immature, dysfunctional, yet COMMITTED disciples....THESE ARE THEY...that will turn the world upside down! The moral of the story is this...depending on your calling...Your mantle, will work in hostile environments and may even thrive when intense opposition rises against you, however your most POTENT release, will be to those who value what rests on your life and its place in their life. Redirect your energy, and delegate the rest!
