He knows you and he fears you

The enemy always knows when things are about to turn.  He is not attacking all forms of Christian activity.  Some is over the top in your face. I love Rodney Howard-Browne, but sometimes restraint is your friend.  He didn't show much.

His arrest and position while admirable and understandable,  is not the way.  We must be in submission to authorities as the word talks about. If this had been in ancient Jerusalem and this happened, they would already be dead.

This is a time for the church to walk thru the open door that the Lord has opened.  People need God and in this time of fear, we know the one they need.  Show them.  But.. do so with the anointing that it requires.

There are frontal attacks on the name of Christ and his causes.  Recently the Greensboro NC police arrested 7 people outside an abortion mill.  They were spaced 6' apart. Not loud.  Just Praying.
This crisis is causing all kinds of aberrant behavior as the devil and his demons go into full attack mode.  We must be prepared and we must let the world know.

Read all about this here.

Remember that when the devil comes in, the Lord like a FLOOD raises up a standard against him.  Be the flood.

Will we know?

People are saying, "when this ends and goes back to normal".

I can tell you it will NEVER go back to how it was in January.  We have made a change in our lives as a world, as a nation and in your city whereever you are.  In families.  In all sorts of ways.

We will not know when it ends.  Or that it won't start again.  The new normal won't look much like the old. 

It will be a different world.  Very different..

The only thing that stays the Same is the Immutable nature of God.. everything else mutates.

Where do we Dwell?

When I talk to people in this time I can quickly discern where they dwell.

This is not a critisizm. It is more an observation that those who are prophetic will discern quickly.

News people don't Dwell for the most part.

Government doesn't Dwell.

Many Political Leaders in High Places lack Dwell.

Hoarders with Cartloads of Toilet Paper aren't Dwellers. 

Even many so called Believers are not able to Dwell.


1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
            Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
      2I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
            My God, in whom I trust!”
      3For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
            And from the deadly pestilence.
      4He will cover you with His pinions,
            And under His wings you may seek refuge;
            His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
      5You will not be afraid of the terror by night,
            Or of the arrow that flies by day;
      6Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
            Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
      7A thousand may fall at your side
            And ten thousand at your right hand,
            But it shall not approach you.
      8You will only look on with your eyes
            And see the recompense of the wicked.
      9For you have made the LORD, my refuge,
            Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
      10No evil will befall you,
            Nor will any plague come near your tent.
      11For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
            To guard you in all your ways.
      12They will bear you up in their hands,
            That you do not strike your foot against a stone.
      13You will tread upon the lion and cobra,
            The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.
      14“Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
            I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
      15“He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
            I will be with him in trouble;
            I will rescue him and honor him.
      16“With a long life I will satisfy him
            And let him see My salvation.”

Psalm 91

The Fog of War is a Fog

I am amazed.  Today I was at the grocery store.  The nice lady who was checking us out started to tell me how Bill Gates stepping down from Microsoft was part of an evil plot of some sort or another. 

She gave me a website to go to.

This was the second time today.

Now to be fair, when people are cooped up all kinds of imaginations rise up.  Too many movies. Too much TV.  Too many You Tubes.  And then there is FACEBOOK.

WOW the fog of the war in our minds causes even believers to engage in foggy thinking.  We need clarity. We need focus on what really matters. 

What matters is each other, our children, our friends our parents, our health, our well being.  A good friend of mine called me this PM to tell me about how scared he was for his future.  He's in the same business I am.  It was crazy.  I had to talk him down. 

You are in good hands if you are in HIS hand.

Future History - we will enter into a recession --- BUT

Right now many men's hearts are failing them for fear.  If you say to someone, "TAKE HEART", sometimes that heart fails them.  That is the meaning of the phrase.

Here are some prophetic insights for a believer at this time:

Trust the Lord first. He is the only one worthy of your faith.  The concern is there is a tendency to trust in man, economists, Presidents, Politicians, Capitalism and the USA.   There is a distorted worship spirit that causes many to focus on the arm of man rather than the arm of God.

It is reassuring to have competent leaders and systems, but they will disappoint us.  They always do. This is a time to face the warfare we are in.  Things are going to change and won't return to what it was in January 2020.  Things have changed globally forever.   We will never get back to the way is was... ever.  In some ways it will be better as I will explain.

I could warn of dangers, there are many.   The enemy of your soul is using his position in the media, entertainment and the culture in general to discourage you. I would rather offer you a view into the future so you are prepared.

The whole world is hurt badly by this crisis.  This will be a drag on any attempt to return to normalcy.  No matter what the government and politicians do, it will be temporary. The economy will suffer badly for at 8  months.  As the world economy begins to return to life, the North American Economy will revive most and faster.  This will take two years to get well.  Again, not to back to what it was, to something different.

Pay no real attention to the equity markets.   They are a harbinger, the real economy lags the markets  by a long time.  So as you see the markets suffering, there will be a recession to follow.  When you see the market recover the economy will lag that revival.  You won't feel it for a while.  It is a 3 month lag at the shortest.

Many people will be out of work for a long time.   Trades people will do the best.  Office and administrative people will not.  This is the time for compassion and love.  Stay in touch with friends and family.  Our approach to these kinds of events in pandemics will be a new normal.

This event will generate a new approach that is common sense.  Life will be seen as a risk.. and the cost of ameliorating the risk will be reassessed as the lessons of this pandemic's global effects are felt.  We have all heard safety first.  Yet at what price?  We will understand that not everything that can be done should be done.  Life if fragile, but life is also a gift.  Medical science can help, but it is still appointed unto man once to die.  We will as a nation, as a culture begin to think of Saftey Third.

Here are some ways the landscape will change.  Several retail enterprises other than the giants like Target and Walmart will suffer.  J C Penny, Macy's and Bed Bath and Beyond will cease to exist.  So will millions of very small enterprises.  Restaurants will be rare as we knew them.  Outdoor eating when possible will thrive.  Theaters in all forms will close.  A few survive but very few.  Sporting events will suffer.  Pay per view  will become a norm as ticket sales dry up.

Our habits as  a culture with social distancing will not change for a long time. 

What of the House of God, Churches.  This will be a trajedy.  While they may be allowed to reopen again, attendance will shrink. 

So what does that have to do with any move of God in the USA and beyond.  There will be one, but it will be organic and small.

The changes coming are not tragic.  They may be changes that have been needed for a long time. We will be less spectator driven and more involvement driven.  God isn't going away, but we will meet him more on our own than in a crowd, concert of convention. 

What the world will look like is going to be very different.  Life and death will become a measure.  We are making some mistakes.. but there will be lessons learned. 

Stay strong, trust God and be eternally ready.

Sometimes I don't understand what the Lord is saying until later

On the first of March, you can scroll down and read it, I posted a word of the Lord.  I was encouraged to do so.  It seemed to fit. It seemed optomisitc and forward thinking..  Yet now in the rear view mirror I see now what the Lord was saying and it fits very well for this trouble we are going thru.

So march forward, don't look back.  The enemy is defeated even if he rages now.

This is what we have waited for.. not let's not blow it

For a long time those in prophetic circles have said that a huge change is coming, that everything that can be shaken will be shaken. Now is that time. Fear is a demon, people's hearts fail them for fear.  Those who are able to have heart in bad times will not only survive but prosper.

It is time for the children of God to understand that the opprotunity of a lifetime has been laid befor them.  It's time to understand that the darkness of hidden riches are right in front of them.

Be bold, be strong for the Lord thy God is with thee.

A Word Regarding the Corona Virus and Fear

I was stirred this morning by the fear that is being spread  around the world.  That idea that many people are going to die.

Yes, some will.  Not all.  But some will.

It is the way it happens.  Millions die every year, some of flu, some of cancer, come of  heart ailments, some of murder, some of suicide and on and on it goes.

No one makes light of the facts regarding this new virus circling the globe.  Yet.. it is what it is and we need to face it with faith not fear.

Where health care is good, people get sick and then they get better.  Where health care is poor people die disproportionately. 

Where there is a large and comprimised population, like in a nursing home, many die.

Here is the truth.  All of us, most likely will  encounter, be exposed to and even some will manifest symptoms of this new virus.  Nearly all of us will survive.  Young and healthy don't seem to be mortally affected. So even if you aren't young, you can be healthy.

Be as careful as you can be, but don't be silly.  Don't lean into the punch.

There is a mass hysteria over this in the world right now. Fear of the unknown, of a mass extermination of the human race.  Except that isn't what is being seen.   Yes in China and South Korea there are many sick and a percentage will die.  Every life is precious, but there does indeed come a time when we come face to face with the end.  It is appointed unto a men once.

Despite the furor, even the epicenter in China has seen the peak of this.  Those who were going  to die from it, did.  Most did not.  It is passing from the scene.

Fear is causing the economy to stumble.  This is short lived.  At some point people will become aware of the limited impact of all this.  The greatest economy in the world will rebound.

Do not be taken in by the Snare of the Fowler which is fear.

This too shall pass, faster than you can possibly believe.  By the 4th of July this will be a rear view event.  Stay as safe as possible but as Jesus said to the disciples in the boat when he rose from his nap....STOP THE FEAR.

March is a month. It is also a verb. And a noun. There are meanings that weave together what the Lord has to say to us:

Armies MARCH into war (Onward Christian Soldiers, marching as to war)

Victors make captives MARCH in their defeat.
A MARCH is a measure of Distance (a Day’s March away)

MARCH is a Month of transition.
From Cold to Warmth
From Darkness to light
From frozen to a Thaw
From winter to Spring
From Hidden inside to the SUN

MARCH is the month of the latter rain. In Israel the former rain is in the fall when the crop is planted, but the latter rain happens in MARCH to spur on the crop as the weather warms and insure a plentiful harvest.

A MARCH can be a demonstration of your passion and belief is support of or in opposition to.
A MARCH has a destination, a purpose, a place from where you are to where you are going.
TO MARCH infers perseverance. Like time marches on, so do we March towards our goal and purpose.

A MARCH can be a song with a steady rhythm that keeps you walking forward. It can also be a way for a large group to MARCH to the same beat.

As you come into a new season on this first day of March, know that I lead the parade as your banner Adonai Nissi. March together on the road to victory. I have a new destination for you to march toward. Your enemies and opposition are humiliated in defeat as you march them to their end. They have nothing for you and what they held against you is now defeated.

March with confidence as you move persevering against the enemy. Your march is steady; the drumbeat of your victory is heard above the noise of the world. The darkness you have endured, the stuck place, the place of winter is thawing as you march forward.

Your season is changing before your eyes. March, March forward. People seldom march in defeat. They march in victory. You have a cause; the cause is victory over your enemies.

March is the time for your sacrifice and the winter frost to be dispelled by the latter rains. The latter rains coming in this season will nurture a plentiful harvest for you. The former rains came when you planted a seed.. but now as you march forward into this season of latter rain, the seed you planted will come forth, first the shoot, then the full ear.

There will be dark clouds and wind that might cause you to shrink back from your Jericho march toward victory, but remember, he who regards the wind will not sow and he who regards the rain will not harvest. The clouds are fear, the wind is bad news, the result can be discouragement. It is the enemy that is the author of fear. Keep your eyes on me my children.

It’s your season and plenty is coming. Have no fear. March with faith for your future.
