America’s Home Invasion

I knew this encounter recorded in America’s Home Invasion (two years ago) had an astounding futuristic lesson in it. TODAY’S headlines are pointing to that season right now. A growing moral dilemma is expanding at our southern borders, causing great division among people who would normally agree, even of those in the Church. God is not a democrat or republican. He is God. The answer is corrective to a nation of lawlessness, that let greed and slavery of all kinds, replace good moral judgement. Those who have prospered and gained in this, by flooding the border with illegal aliens, have been at the helm of the ship, until recently. Still, there are those who are tirelessly working to exploit this condition at the borders to serve their own narrative, where now only the media is their helm and rudder.

As a crisis it has come to a head. Because America is being corrected for her waywardness. Making America great again is actually a disciplinarian act of God, and that includes whom He lets practice at the helm, even now. It is not easy because strongholds have been erected in the land, due to years of our disobedience and subsequent captivity. We have just recently broken out from under the jurisdiction of a foreign spirit. The gallows and rope, of a Haman kind, is still swinging in the wind. But a plot and a craft is being turned around. Let us pray that it is not only being delayed. The confrontations are not abating, they are mounting up. Were it not for the following encounter I wouldn’t know what to think! But, God has made me see His sorting hand through all of this as a prophet intercessor, as HE does for all those who set themselves to pray for a nation. America will have to right her wrongs. At the same time we have laws and borders for a reason. As we have property lines, locks, and doors. Let us learn from:

America’s Home Invasion.

My husband left the house at 5:44 am February 8, 2016. I was in our upstairs bedroom working on my website. This was very unusual because normally I’m downstairs with him every morning at this time. He came up the stairs to say good bye, before heading out the door on a trip he was taking. I heard the front door close in the living room behind him. The only light on in our room was from the iPad I was working on. I turned it off, and was surprised on how utterly dark it was on the entire second floor. I waited for my eyes to adjust, but it didn’t change the pitch blackness in the room. I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face! I thought this to be odd because we have several windows on that floor. I was so put off by how black it was in the room that I decided to go down stairs; though I wasn’t frightened by the darkness, It just seemed too dark and so I wondered if David had turned off every light in the house, including the porch light, and I wanted to make sure the porch light was on. I reached over to grab my phone, but as I did I heard a rustling down on the main floor, and then the distinct sound of footsteps carefully walking up the stairs. I thought it must have been David, but I knew he would have called up to me if he had forgotten something and returned home.

At this point I began to slip into a harrowing realization that a stranger was in my house, whom I suspected didn’t know I was there, and couldn’t see any better than I could.

I grabbed my phone and slipped onto the wood floor beside the bed, it was cold but at least I was hidden from the door, on the other side. The foot steps continued more and more confident, and then I could tell whoever it was- was standing at the top of the stairs, I could hear some one else was below him, as the perpetrator entered my room. Somehow, I knew they really thought the house was empty and didn’t expect me to be there …

Remnant Nation Radio w/NeWinePouring.com is a prophetic (and often poetic) view of the sojourning bride of CHRIST, in our world today. Joining the voice of the Spirit and the Bride in their end-time ministry that calls for Christ’s return.

NeWine Pouring is a dream journal website where you can access teaching articles, and prophetic words produced out of a call to intercede for America. In 2004 the Lord gave Deana and her and husband David direction to move to the Eastern Seaboard of the United States to pray and teach prayer for America.

Over a span of 37 years Deana has ministered in outreaches, prisons, jails, churches, and women’s meetings. After several years in property, business, and people, management, the Lord called her aside into a life of full time prayer and writing in 2007.

NeWinePouring’s articles have been viewed by individuals from 128 different

countries, where various websites have posted prophetic words and teachings generated from NeWinePouring.com. The recorded visits of these articles and podcasts, collectively, have far surpassed 500,000 readers. iheart Radio enabled NeWine Pouring to acquire Station Status with Spreaker three years ago, in a recent endeavor in podcasting. We are celebrating 10,000 plays with 8 thousand due to Remnant. The NeWinePouring podcast called Remnant Nation Radio is gaining new listeners every day, while we are working on ideas for studio webcasts, as well.

Deana: “My husband and I, of 35 years, reside near the foothills that ascend towards the Blue Ridge Mountains, in Western North Carolina. We have 3 children and 6 grand children. My husband and I accepted a mandate regarding prayer for America, that began with our oldest son moving to the east coast, after attending a youth rally for Christ in Washington, DC., in 2000- paving away for our whole family to answer such a life altering call. A few years later we would all be living near the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, in North Carolina, 2800 hundred miles from a land cut with deep canyons, rivers , and jagged peaked mountains, we called home. Idaho was where our people lived for five generations who traveled out west as pioneers.

Both my husband’s and my own family tree, have roots in North and South Carolina as far back as the Revolutionary War. The blood sweat and tears, that was exacted upon our family lines to live free in America, personalized our desire to see this nation turn to God.

Geographically, our hearts have been torn between East and West coast, fueling fervency in intercession as we crisscrossed this country over a dozen times now. Calling upon moves of God over each State as we traveled through. In 2011, I was allowed the privilege to join a minister friend of mine, traveling the region of the original 13 colonies on a prayer tour. Visiting 15 Capitals, and senate chambers for prayer and prophetic proclamation, ending at Washington DC., after moving near the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western NC., where we are responding to new prayer mandates, while teaching and preaching the word of God.

After all these years I believe I am now entering into the final phase of my ministry that explains the events of my conversion. In 1978, I received an open eye vision of the Lord handing to me a blazing torch out of heaven that lit up the night sky; I was 17 years old. Later, I would understand that experience to signify a commission of God to an end-times prophetic ministry. There after, I began to have visions and dreams of America’s final days before Christ’s return.

Your Heritage Is Of Me

Psalm 16:5-6

The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup: you maintain my lot. The lines are fallen to me in pleasant places; yes, I have a goodly heritage.

We are born into a goodly heritage as heirs of our Father’s Kingdom.  While Satanic forces war against God’s creation that was MADE IN HIS IMAGE, children in our society are thrown into confusion over their identity- regarding the most basic details of their humanity. As the Body Of Christ, our standard is unmovable and unshakable. Our identity is found in the safe keeping of our Father, our inheritance is also! Deana teaches on identity in this podcast.

Isaiah 57:3

No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, said the LORD.

Zeal With Out Knowledge

Knowing What Is Next

Romans 10:1-3
Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.

In a dream I was on a visit at a family’s home right in the middle of a town. We were talking and walking around the back yard. There was a garden bed, it seemed 3 times bigger than my own garden at home. I had put this garden in for them, it seemed a while back. I remember building up the soil and measuring out the size of the bed, and planting seeds, and plants, in the garden for them, while they had been busy with life and family. I almost walked past it.

At first glance it looked over grown – with greenery, it hadn’t been taken care of. I didn’t see any thing ready for harvest yet. But when I looked closer and moved the overgrowth out of the way, I saw vegetables of all kinds: tomatoes, peppers, and onion, lots of vegetables ready to be picked. The garden was ripe and ready. Some over ripe, but nothing had perished yet. All the work had been done for this garden, it just needed harvested. I had planted it, but it was time for others to do their part. The Lord impressed upon me to look at the names, in the dream, to SEE the message and the Church. The name of the property owners in Hebrew meant:

The Store House Of Jehovah’s Flame.

There were children and babies in the house! “I looked up and saw a figure standing on the porch looking out. Their Hebrew name means “Where The King Meets.” In the arms of where The King Meets was “Rest.” It was up to the Flame of Jehovah to pull in the harvest. Flame represented the Zeal Of The Lord! All they had to do was harvest it, it was harvest time! A few things were at a fermentation stage but not lost. When I looked up I saw that they had fenced off their own land too narrow. It was suppose to be 4 times wider, and 3 times longer. This speaks of vision or the lack there of. (I’ll cover that in a moment). I was trying to get them to see their property line was farther down and wider than what they had fenced off. As far as the garden itself, the fruit was almost lost due to the lack of searching for a thing in its time, and season. They didn’t make the necessary effort towards WHAT IS NEXT, after cultivation, planting, and watering … that they clearly didn’t even have to do. There seemed to be no expectation for fruit. It was simply a matter of waiting for the fullness of the season for them, but the Store House Of Jehovah’s Flame, just walked past it all, pre-occupied with the back yard view. Clearly, this a form of spiritual blindness, on more than many levels, and I believe those plagued with this blindness are products of the institutionalized Church, that have a disconnect with who and what they are in the kingdom.

John 4:34-38

Do you not say, ‘There are still four months until the harvest’? I tell you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are ripe for harvest.Already the reaper draws his wages and gathers a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may rejoice together. For in this case the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. I sent you to reap what you have not worked for; others have done the hard work, and now you have taken up their labor.

We need to understand sequential processes that even nature teaches exist! To know what comes after … what is next, and look for it. The Kingdom of God is built upon the principles of agriculture and animal husbandry. Look at most of the Lord’s parables. Parables about plowing, sowing seeds, harvest, and threshing floors. Vineyard keeping. Stewardships, and debt settlements. All of these have one thing in common. That is natural order. Stages of activity required in any given season, that leads to the next. The bible says that there are times and seasons that are not for us to know that are in the Fathers hands. This has to do with Jesus’s return and the time of the end. All that is required of us is readiness and watchfulness. However, there are those things that are given into our hands to know. The time of harvest comes when it is time. It is “looked for, watched for.”

This dream tells me that there is a harvest that I’m in close proximity to, that is being neglected. From a personal level to a generational one. The laborers are so few, those looking and expecting for God to move are the only ones showing up for WHAT IS NEXT. As the sons of Issachar had wisdom to know times and seasons, so wisdom lines us up with God’s timing. An ability that knows what’s next, by observation and expectation of the demonstration and power of God- these are evident in those that walk in this because nothing will keep them from it! Pearls of great price, treasures in the field … are sacrificed for. But we cannot have passion in our slumber, no matter our zealous activity or activism; true passion seeks an awareness of what God is doing, and will be a part of it.

1 Ch 12:32 Of Issachar knowing times and seasons.

And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brothers were at their commandment.

Commentary tells us this was a knowledge or gift they had that kept Israel on course, of them were 200 chiefs among the people. I believe the Body of Christ has this same kind of wisdom among us when we are operating properly. After all we are spiritual Israel. If members of the Body are isolated then they are cut off from the general concession in the determination of what IS NEXT, or left alone in it. Neither condition promotes the fulness of God, but I would rather go it alone into the field of harvest, possibly reaping another’s reward, than never going at all.

I’ve never seen the Lord do any thing random. One work, meeting, or outpouring, was in preparation for the season coming next. Yet, I’ve seen people step out of the order of God doing things that seemed a good thing to do, but they were cleverly disguised distractions. Equivalent to abandoning the plow in the middle of the field, in order to go build a barn. Failing to see that if that field doesn’t get plowed and seeded, in the right season, there will be no need for a barn! The worker of God needs wisdom, knowledge, and understanding; with their zeal, and fervor, to be most affective in the moment they are in. Above that they must believe in purpose. For everything there is a time, and season under the sun. They need to know, by the Spirit of God, the instrument that they are, and giftings surrounding them. Purpose is aborted when the purpose for conception is never realized. People abandon the natural process of what is next because they are either blind to it, or oblivious to their potential in it. Institutionalization creates a pattern or mapping in our brains that creates a mindless herd instinct. Rather than the realization that we are the temple of a fiery Holy Indweller that calls us to the Father, one life and breath at a time; our ability to see as individuals has corporate value, as corporate vision has value to individuals.

Hosea 4:6 declares-

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”

When we understand our calling, our gifting, and our placement, our focus cannot get side tracked. When we see the bigger picture, we find how disruptive our absence is when random impulse overrides intentional living.

Every farmer knows when to plant, when to tend, and when to harvest. It is by observation. Look and see!

To DISCERN the days of harvest.

All it took was to look. SEE the fields are white already!! In the parable of the harvest they were told to LOOK and SEE! There is a strange phenomenon being addressed in this parable. It is a blindness to what should be the obvious. Most churches send out a monthly calendar, planning their meetings and activities according to dates and holidays, often months in advance! Never considering that their yearly activities aņd holidays, are interrupting momentums of God! Often one person is in charge of planning these events rather than the entire presbytery meeting in fastings and prayers to plan, and assign commissionings, and gatherings of the saints. The Body is connected to the heart and mind of Christ collectively. Therefore WHAT IS NEXT should be seen collectively, or at least they would bear witness to the vision or direction collectively! But, that requires a Body fitly joined together. A devoted presbytery is enough, but ideally the flock is in unity. Look how they arrived together sending out and receiving one another in the New Testament. No one person is assigned to the decision making. Except when they are commended to God to fulfill a specific and singular calling. But, even the Apostles had to be received by the Church in their circuits. We see that John was actually wickedly rejected by one of those Churches, by someone acting on his own.

3 John 1:9 I wrote to the Church: but Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among them, receives us not.

A seeking people submitted to one another is less likely to derail the purposes of God. One acting upon their own, making decisions on their own, is trumping that they have no need of the hand. Or foot. It is simple. If our endeavors are the result of a personal commission of God, we act upon the leading of the Holy Spirit, and counsel and confirmations He crosses our path with. If our endeavors involve the Body of Christ as a worker among a Body of saints, than we are collectively led, using the presbytery- not forgetting to involve the congregation. In this way we can be sure our foot steps are ordered of the Lord.

Acts 15:22-2  Then the apostles and elders, with the whole church, decided to choose some of their own men and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They chose Judas (called Barsabbas) and Silas, men who were leaders among the believers. With them they sent the following letter: The apostles and elders, your brothers, To the Gentile believers in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia: in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia .. (study chapter 15 to see the churches rightful place in corporate decision making.)

Notice how visitors were sent out and received in this passage? Collectively, corporately. This minimized the chance of sending or receiving an apostate among the flocks of God.

Zeal without knowledge will find us barreling down dead-end streets that lead to no where. I can tell you countless times where Holy Spirit outpourings became derailed because of the Christmas season, and divine momentums lost because Easter had to be served with egg hunts and pageantry. Or, the yearly church picnic; or the Pastor’s family vacation. (Revealing reliances are not on Jesus’s headship but a personality.) A deeper discussion could be explored on how some of these activities, (say certain holiday observances) may actually grieve the Holy Spirit, and cause His departure, in the middle of what should have been days of renewal. Or, an entry into the field of harvest. Rather, these moments are frivolously squandered. Fruit falls to the ground and a harvest is lost. Many times people just shrink back. When all that we have to do is what comes next. This life style of making our appointments, as a people, requires a reliance on the Spirit of God, and an assembly of the faithful, not apart from either one. Follow the Spirit, and hang out with the faithful. Huddle with the ones who pay the price to obey. This will never forsake you.

Jesus ends the parable of the harvest with instructions to pray to the Lord of the harvest, to send forth laborers! Harvesters are skilled for just that, you have to know what you’re doing! But, it is field work so it doesn’t take that much instruction, more so, it takes the willing!

In this dream, the one appointed to bring in the harvest was taking a stroll, instead! There was vision but it was limited. Mindsets can limit vision. We were on a tour, but what I saw and what they saw was not the same! I saw a harvest over due. I saw work that couldn’t wait. I saw that the Store House of Jehovah’s Flame had a harvest about to rot in the ground, and a trust not comprehended, an inheritance fenced off too narrow, from its original size. Blind and short-sighted! Where there is no vision the people cast off restraint. In other words they do not live intentional lives. According to the responsibility staked out before them. They have everything they need but vision and wisdom to know what’s suppose to happen next.

This Christian at that very moment whose name speaks to having a zeal for God, was pointing out to me perimeters of a vision that I could see was just a quarter of what it was really suppose to be, while neglecting to see a garden ready to be harvested. This is twice the blindness.

Zeal is what all active Christians have. But activity and passion is not Wisdom Knowledge and Understanding. Thomas in the bible had a problem with doubt and unbelief, but He was not without zeal and passion. While Jesus was preparing to go raise Lazerus from the dead Thomas was preparing to go with Him and die. That is ZEAL. But it was zeal with out knowledge, with out understanding, with out expectation, it fell short of the will and purposes of God. Thomas was ready to die with His Lord. But, not prepared to believe in his resurrection power. For even as He saw what Jesus did for Lazerus, Thomas still doubted when he was told Jesus himself was resurrected from the dead. Thomas had zeal and passion, or he would have never been a follower of Christ. Yet, he lacked faith. This zealous disciple is known as Doubting Thomas. We can call Him Zealous Didymus according to the following scripture.

John 11:8-16

His disciples said, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone you; and go you thither again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbles not, because he sees the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him. These things said he: and after that he said to them, Our friend Lazarus sleeps; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. However, Jesus spoke of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. Then said Jesus to them plainly, Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent you may believe; nevertheless let us go to him. Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, to his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him

Dieing for a cause is commendable. But it is a waste when our zeal and passion runs us past God’s plans and purposes for our lives. Again we see Thomas falling short of the point of it all, missing the power of His resurrection. Yet, he was chosen to be a disciple, and apostle of Christ. Jesus took the time to walk Thomas through, for better understanding. 

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen! Blessed are those who have never seen Jesus with their own eyes, but yet believe. Faith looks for the fruit in the days of harvest. Wisdom embarks upon the task with all the right equipment.

The trees and vines of spiritual inheritances, are hanging low, and heavy, but few labor to visit that place where expectation and harvest meet. We sometimes wonder why God uses others in the extraordinary way He does while life for most is status quo. I really am beginning to believe that faith is the factor. Too many are short sighted. Distracted, or just not using the wisdom of God available to them. There are a lot of busy souls in the Church! Activity to the brim with people trying to do something for God! But is it the right activity? Is it about what is next? I could see that the Storehouse of Jehovah’s Flame had been real busy. Busy fencing off potential, and ignoring the harvest they didn’t have to plant. Other laborers prepped the ground for them.

All God has for us to harvest is in plain sight. But we need to understand our seasons as a collective body of believers. When the house is in order as one people, rather than one personality, the Church will be what Jesus gave Himself for. When expectation doesn’t merge with knowledge and understanding, distraction easily pulls God’s people out of the point of why we cultivate, seed, and water in the first place. Otherwise, they acclimate to an endless cycle short of resolve. Short of harvest. Time and time again. It is a condition we can’t get a way from until we get it out of us. There is an epidemic, a curse in the land, where we are killing fruit before its term. This is called abortion. The Church, the body of Christ in our country, needs to take a cold hard look at why we seem to come to the threshold of movements, that are either aborted or lost at infancy. Break the curse. Trust the anointings that have brought works to term, that are anointed to do so. It takes every part of the plant to bring forth fruit. It takes every part of the Body Of Christ to do so too.  Just as a pregnant woman’s condition is that she is pregnant. Not just her womb.

Harvest time is a change of routine. It often demands late nights with the combines in the fields, and early morning risings. Meals are on the move, because harvest is time sensitive.

” With out a vision my people parish. With out a vision they cast off restraints.”

Clearly, in the dream a work was planted among a people who had limited vision. While God has said one man sows, another man waters, and God gives the increase, it is also written, “Pray  the Lord of the Harvest, to send laborers.” It may not be the laborers originally intended- others may walk in just in time to reap a harvest not planted in their yard. It is sad to see people lose benefits they didn’t know they had for lack of expectation, and wisdom to know their time and season. Times and seasons that sometimes shift as quickly as the shadows of eve, and then are no more!

God’s chosen vessels who have a purpose we may not understand, that come into our lives, are either utilized or rejected, we need to have the discernment to know they are a bridge for crossing. To take us where we can never go without them. Any more than the foot can be functional without the ankle. If that willing and obedient component is not realized, the Father will eventually move it out until it is realized somewhere as a significant part to the whole. That fellowship will reap the benefits, and accomplish the work. While the others that would not seek discernment to know whom God has set among them, continue to stumble in a cycle of never coming to term.

Counsel leads to acts of might as workings lead to miracles.

Walk the fields of expectation, seek to harvest that which has come to fruition. Pray that you have eyes to see, what is hidden out of view but is ready for harvest. Pray restrictions off understanding of the saints of God to remove mindsets that counter act vision, to see. To many times I’ve seen doubt and unbelief put the brakes on just short of break through. Many romance the thought to be greatly used by God, but shrink back at the threshold where mockery is intensified, and the opponents of Christ wish to lay them bare. Remembering without faith it is impossible to please God.

The World Wants To Know

Many Christians go to secular websites for answers about their dreams. This often means they are consulting spiritist, psychics, and mediums, to do so. We should seek those filled with the Holy Spirit of God, to understand spiritual phenomenon, and the paranormal. None of these people can possibly have the Holy Spirit- if they say they do they are lying. Because the bible forbids their practice. We must seek Holy Spirit filled believers for counsel rather than mediums that have other spirits as their guides. The bible only sanctions gifts of the Holy Spirit. NeWinePouring.com is a dream journal website for the prophetic ministry of Deana Barnes. Of 198 countries that have visited the website these listed in the photo provide the top 10 most views second to the 🇺🇸 US! The world wants to know what their dreams and visions mean! Dreams and visions are not that extraordinary to experience any more. (Joel 2) What is extraordinary is understanding what the SpiritOfGod is saying through them. It takes the gift of prophecy, discernment, interpretation, and the SpiritOfWisdom to unlock knowledge and understanding given in dreams and visions, that come from the Lord. As not all oysters have a pearl inside of them, so most dreams are the substance of mental and emotional processes. Dream interpretation is not understanding symbolism. But understanding what God is actually saying through the symbolism, and this takes prayer. A Christian dreamer can wait on God in prayer until He shows them the mystery. The Father can only be accessed through His SON the Lord Jesus Christ. That is why Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” The biggest mistake made regarding the mysteries of God, is going everywhere else to understand them, rather than to Him! As the Pharoah of Egypt, during Joseph’s time, consulted with magicians and astrologers of his dominion, Joseph was the only one that could interpret Pharoah’s dream, accurately. Because Joseph walked with God whom he was in covenant with. As it is now, the Father is in covenant with all who believe upon His Son John 3:16. About the Holy Spirit, gifts and outpourings. Acts 2 1 Cor. 12,13,14, Eph 4. Joel 2

Altar Of Renewal

The Altar of Renewal

Today’s altars can easily become monuments of what was yesterday. What God did yesterday. Before we know it yesterday is behind us in months and years. Our church, our experiences, our encounter with God, even our songs, and method of worship- can quickly become a memory of what once was. Visiting those places become nostalgic, and nostalgia can settle down on us like a nice warm blanket, until Sunday comes again. Until we see our friends again, and there we relive it all; in our songs and testimony of a God who was. Forgetting He is the Living Word. Forgetting that He wants to fill us full of His Spirit each day. In HIM we live and breathe and have our being. His mercies are new every morning, and so our DAILY worship should be an altar of renewal. https://newinepouring.com #Jesus #holyspirit https://newinepouring.com/contact-us/ Deana Barnes Prophetic Ministry

 

The Jezebel School Of Cosmetology

A podcast version of the article- The Ahab Jezebel Modus Operandi, with added commentary.

The Jezebel School of Cosmetology.  

Could it be that most of everything we’ve been taught about “The Jezebel Spirit” is incomplete? And is actually often twisted by the very same darkness that animates her works in the earth? Have books and sermons dedicated to teachings on Jezebel missed the whole point, time and time again? I suggest to you that many of them have, serving to create the same kind of atmosphere that Jezebel promoted (punishing obedience to God) that existed in her day. This operative is bigger than we understand, and is enabling a world movement, far beyond what we could have ever imagined. Many have said it is all about power with Jezebel, I say the word clearly shows us, it is much much more. In fact as there was a kingdom under her and Ahab’s oppression, so most of Christianity, needlessly, suffers the cause and effect of this demonic power. Listen to this podcast by Deana Barnes.

1 Timothy 4:14-16

Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate on these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your profiting may appear to all. Take heed to yourself, and to the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this you shall both save yourself, and them that hear you.

1 Timothy 1:18-19

This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on you, that you by them might war a good warfare; Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

Oh how the waster thought to come and destroy, how he sets up road blocks for pillage. But I have averted him says the Lord, I created the waster to destroy- covenant stays his hand.

Know that you are my Ambassador, my representative. As I have said, and I have given you to carry my name, and I have given you my name. This is the key of David. I am he that liveth and was dead. And behold I am alive for ever more. And I have the keys of death and of hell. Opening doors no man can shut, and shutting doors no man can open.
These signs will follow them that believe. In my name … And I have seen the mud slinging, land upon your garment, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that you have continuously determined to put on. How the enemy despises purity. I wash away reproach, I will remove (what has been cast upon you) the stain of contempt- washed in washings and renewals.

This from the water of my word as you spend time in me. Does not glory rest upon the persecuted ones? Let my spirit renew your mind, says the Lord. In me you can walk in continuous joy, that the world doesn’t understand. This is that fruit, of the first fruit cluster. Love, joy, peace … That greets one another with a holy kiss in my kingdom. You will know them by their fruits in the face of adversity. For the shield of faith distances the approach of despair. Though it come, faith is its mighty foe! See the pearl of great price? In your garment I have sewn them in the hem and borders, many; to memorialize the sacrifice in preferring me, above all else … Oh look and see-  the Bride gives herself to all preperations!

Isaiah 54

Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith Jehovah.
Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thy habitations; spare not: lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes.

For thou shalt spread aboard on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall possess the nations, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth; and the reproach of thy widowhood shalt thou remember no more.

For thy Maker is thy husband; Jehovah of hosts is his name: and the Holy One of Israel is thy Redeemer; the God of the whole earth shall he be called.

For Jehovah hath called thee as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even a wife of youth, when she is cast off, saith thy God.

For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.

In overflowing wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting lovingkindness will I have mercy on thee, saith Jehovah thy Redeemer.

For this is as the waters of Noah unto me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah shall no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my lovingkindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed, saith Jehovah that hath mercy on thee.

O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will set thy stones in fair colors, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.

And I will make thy pinnacles of rubies, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy border of precious stones.

And all thy children shall be taught of Jehovah; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee.

Behold, they may gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall because of thee.

Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the fire of coals, and bringeth forth a weapon for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness which is of me, saith Jehovah.

1 Timothy 1:18-19

This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on you, that you by them might war a good warfare; Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

The Lord reminded me that among the body of believers in the earth, there are those committed to relationships. But not all committed to the purpose of why Jesus is calling His people to gather together. In fact, they honestly are not in understanding of it, and don’t have revelation beyond seeing meetings as opportunities for ministry, worship, and prayer. An outlet for them to give and receive. This is never going to change, until, somehow, purpose is instilled in them. When people understand the purpose of God for what they are doing, focus and commitment naturally follow. Nothing we do should be performance driven. But, purpose driven. Even people who have based their life on teaching this concept have become performance driven. It’s that easy of a trap to fall into. It happens when we lack vision. With out a vision the people perish, they perish in purposeless living. With out a vision they cast off restraint. They become listless like a ship with broken sails, blown about with every wind of opinion, pushing against them.

Because of that Churches become entertainment centers with an activities director, keeping people interested, preoccupied with making everyone happy. Rather than building relationships focused on obeying the will of the Father. 

When God’s people lock in on revelation that they are with each other (where they are) for a reason – then comes single mindedness to the purpose. A unified understanding of what God is doing, and what our part in it is. In that comes focus that produces commitment. Commitment to purpose sees what is clutter. We are lively stones that God wants to cut, polish, and fit into place, for His purpose. People that allow long gaps to go by with out fellowship and assembly with one another, have other commitments. Right our wrong this is just the way it is. While we all have our lives that we are living, the sense of divine purpose brings the order of God, into it. What is clutter to our own households, in how we live, and what we do, determines destinies.

Contending For Purpose

If destiny cannot be thwarted or derailed, than Paul would have never had to admonish Timothy with the scripture of 1 Timothy 1:18-19 and 1Timothy 4:14-16 – (Don’t neglect your gift. Weaponize prophecy that was prophesied over you. By it do warfare!) This is how we are to engage the enemy that resists the purpose of God in our lives. Despite what we’ve been told most prophecy is conditional to our own commitment to realize its fulfillment. Many saints have desired prophecies (spoken over them in their lives) to come to pass, but have never engaged them as a tool to contend for the will of God in their lives. Also, for lack of knowledge and understanding many have been stubborn about how they believed they should come to pass. When we do warfare in the language of the prophecy we speak according to the will of the Father. When we suppose we know how God is going to bring it to pass we put our self in places and situations we don’t belong. Many that have fulfilled prophetic words spoken over their life, (my self included) have said this, “It didn’t happen as I supposed it would. Yet, God was faithful.” How is it done? If we walk in the Spirit’ we will not fulfill the lust of our flesh. Having no agenda but love. Embracing the fact we may not comprehend all that God is doing, nor have we obtained yet all the promise, but still we press on with Paul’s words in mind…

Php. 3:12-16

I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth to those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing you be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this to you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

 Being Genuine 

Romans 12:9 

Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

Mockery is a very strong and evil spirit that can take hold of people’s lives, and conversation. The spirit of dissimulation, is rampant in our world today. This is the definition.

DISSIMULATION, n. L., to make like; The act of dissembling; to hide under a false appearance; to feign or make false pretense; Dissimulation may also be simply the concealment of opinions, or sentiments of purpose; but it includes also the assuming of a false or counterfeit appearance, which conceals the real opinions or purpose of ones words or actions. Hypocrisy.

In other words, let not our love be fake. Do what we can to really love, be honest. Be real. Don’t play along if you don’t understand. Present your point in earnest desire to build a bridge not a wall. If our prayer life is real with God like this, we can open up to others, as well. When we go to Him and say what we feel, even knowing it probably isn’t right, at least we give Him something to work with. Fear of others breeds dishonesty, it will be the first thing God empties out of us, when we earnestly come to him for deliverance from a spirit of dissimulation. It may take a process, but if we commit ourselves to being genuine with people, we will find many spots and wrinkles being removed from our garment, out of obedience to Paul’s admonition on love.

Gift Of Tongues

Tongues is described as the least of all the gifts. The little toe compared to the foot of all our giftings in the body. Yet, many Christians are still tripping over misunderstandings concerning this heavenly manifestation, that comes with the in filling of the Holy Spirit.

Deana teaches on the gift of unknown tongues, including its prophesied purpose written in the Old Testament, and quoted by Peter on the day of Pentecost. A prophetic word of warning to the Church Of Revolving Doors, wraps up a scriptural look as to why tongues are for now, and for all who seek the in-filling of the Holy Spirit.

 

Wrapped In Love

Spiritual gifts are given in seed form, distributed by the Holy Spirit. WISDOM seeks them out. Understanding matures you in them, and knowledge brings skill. It’s the three legged stool of potential. One missing leg will throw off the balance.

None of this means a thing unless our gifts are activated by faith! Stepping out! These signs will follow them that believe, in my name they shall … Mk 16:15-17 Beloved desire spiritual gifts, but then I show you a more excellent way. Love, love, love. Heals all wounds, wins all battles, endures all things; it doesn’t give up, it is not puffed up … desires Christ to be perfected in others. Love will lay it all down, throw the crown to go find you. Shed the robe, take up the cross, to free, heal, and keep you! *John let go, died alone, so CHRIST could have what was John’s own … brethren. That was love.

The gifts are a promise, a token, and part. It’s not where you finish, it’s only the start. A portion of heaven come from above, the maiden voyage of Noah’s dove … of all these what remains is love, tested, and tried- of all these things endure and abide … in LOVE. Remember Joseph’s coat and colors, how he was despised of his own brothers? They put him into foreign hands, the prince a slave in heathen lands …They will call you names, the lord of flies, your coat of colors will be despised, but you will learn to shake that dirt, and take his name to the ends of the earth. For a heart in famine will listen close, they won’t deny the Holy Ghost … to feed them. For whom they rejected will have HIS day, His light will shine and won’t go away. And nations will come with open sack, and the ones that bow will have no lack. For Joseph the Prince they left to die, is the apple of His Father’s eye. No less are you no less am I, whom love Him. So let not bitter the bitter thing be, call upon heaven and deeply breath! Remember His sacrifice, remember the blood, remember love comes in like a flood, let it have you.

When John was not yet cast into prison. –

He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. *He must increase, but I must decrease.

The Violent Take It By Force

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Jesus taught us our resistance and dealings with the devil were seasonal. After he tempted Jesus in the wilderness, scripture tells us that Satan departed from him for a season. Lately, I’ve been reminded of that from our battles with Python. It’s another day, in another season, with another work; and almost right on cue the infiltrator comes again. But the victorious saints of God are not defeated, nor overcome!

From: The Violent Take It By Force – by deana barnes

imagePart II What Lies Beneath

In part one I show the reader photographs of a tree limb that had been overcome by an invasive vine that had twisted around the trunk of the tree and embedded itself deep into the tree branch. This is a prophetic illustration of the effects of the demon spirit Python. A powerful spirit that seeks to infiltrate Apostolic moves of God (sent to establish the new) to constrict their growth and divert their purpose. We see this spirit addressed in Acts 16:16.

Though divination was how Python manifested through the servant woman. The nature of Python restricts, constricts, and distorts; squeezing the life, and the breath of God, from its victims. It destroys the true composition, and form of what the new work of God is suppose to be. The original design that God created. The ravages of Python leaves behind it the debris field of what could have been. IN THE LIVES OF INDIVIDUALS, and all to often moves of God. We see the deceptive operation of the Python spirit in Acts 16:16 where the damsel who was possessed with a spirit of divination followed Paul’s team who was in the city to bring an apostolic work, in Philippi. Although, the female servant seemed to be there to encourage their endeavors, publicly proclaiming their intentions, even declaring God as THE MOST HIGH, yet, she was possessed of a spirit of divination, called Pythos in Greek. Scriptural proof that not all that glitters is Gold.

image in the world we live in today she would have made it into the board of directors, or appointed a deaconess, but Paul discerned the source of inspiration, and the plot of the enemy. PYTHON was there to restrict and distort, the move of God. To choke it out, replacing it with the power already in control in that city. When ever you feel a Christian gathering is being constricted, and the Holy Spirit quenched, or a service being diverted away from true worship, this is the work of Python, an evil spirit that joins with every demonic player of the power of the air to be a spiritual counterfeit, snaking its way into the sanctuary of God. This evil spirit may not even possess an individual, but could be oppressing them. The best way I have found to stop this spirit from quenching the work of the Holy Spirit is to do exactly what Paul did, stop what you’re doing, turn around and drive out that spirit in the name of Jesus, until it is gone. We need to cut off the head of operations, of Python. In this city the very thing that had it under control, sent out an agent of Satan to bring an Apostolic work into its control. I like to think that the damsel possessed of this spirit became a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, a sister in the Church of Phillipi.

Those under the control of an unclean spirit, will do one of two things, they will run towards the anointing that breaks the yoke, or away from it, depending on whether they want to be free or not. That is why those under control of unclean spirits habitually disappear out of a meeting when ever the anointing begins to fall, had they wanted deliverance the human spirit would have willed themselves into the presence of God. This is why we would see Christ approached by screaming devils, the human spirit, wanting freedom brought them into the presence of God willing to be set free. Had the demons had their way, they would have stayed away. The Lord showed me this in illustration when we attended a Church service where the presence of God fell mightily upon the people who were lost in worship. The Lord spoke to me to observe, the outer hub began to teem with nervous energy while the foyer began to fill with people. No crying demons just chatty, nervous, and distracted people. It is said we need to clean up our alters, this may be true, but we need to clean up our foyers, and parking lots, as well. To often the outer court influences inner court experiences. Even shutting them down. The outer court should have no influence whatsoever, on the moves of the Spirit. A climate not conducive for luke warm fish will not attract them. We don’t have to lift a finger to clean up the altar when we let the fire of God do it for us.

At Your Feasts, In your Presbytery

Notice in scripture the manifested demons actually bowed down and worshipped Jesus. The stronger, more powerful demons, who operate in those who are in authority, the perfectly possessed, you can say, are quite capable to withstand the anointing, and function around it, because they have influence to shift atmosphere that is compatible for them, they can do that with manipulative powers of agreement to quench the Holy Spirit, what they cannot stand is exposure. That is why, so often, the Jewish leaders opposed Christ, vehemently, when he exposed their wickedness. It is more disturbing when those under the control of Python go undetected, slipping into leadership, and the various administrations of God’s house, to put it under a death grip, doing what ever it can do to shut down the atmosphere of worship, that releases the power of God that will expose its darkness and drive it out. Pythos is an operative of Satan that seduces the un-discerning making them admirers aņd followers by divination, when it has control in the hierarchy of a church it would never support pure abandonment in worship, but begin to pull attention to itself, less the power of God is released. A genuine move of God almost always requires one to go somewhere different than they have ever gone before, in repentance, and committment. History reveals to us that the earmarks of an out pouring are extended, hilarious, and abandoned, worship. The kind that the Michaels of mockery jealously despise, of whom the Davids of dance defy, in the joy that the Holy presence of God is brooding over His people.

We have seen Pythos, find its way through various aspects of church functionality that seems to have a hand in changing the course of a meeting, or interrupt the atmosphere away from worship, away from the manifest presence of God, away from the word. Python goes after “breath” it operates best when given voice, what ever pythos can do to “chill” the atmosphere, taking “breath” or giving voice to redirect flows and currents, away from anointed word, and ministry; but more so, away from worship that brings in the manifest presence of God. One reason that would be is because anointed worship charges the atmosphere with power on a corporate level, taking the focus off of one man, and directing it to the Lord of Hosts, who, in turn, pours out His Spirit upon the body of Christ, corporately, who ultimately, is whom God has appointed to manifest the manifold wisdom of God. This kind of power released into the Church on a corporate level not only exposes principalities of darkness, but defeats them, and by the nature of true worship destroys the influence of LEVIATHAN (to twist) who is king of ALL the SONS of PRIDE. Does it not say with the High praises of God in our mouth and a two edged sword in our hands we will bind kings with fetters of iron?

Ephesians 3:8-11 … to me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things… His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.

When Weed Seeds Rise

Tags

, , , , , , ,

image

Mark 4:24 Says take heed to what you hear. Make an effort towards understanding. What effort we make to know and walk in the Word of God, what measures we take- the same will be rewarded back.

Words are seeds. Words have power. When we allow the WORD of LIFE to have a prominent place in our hearts then weed seeds, the enemies lies, have no room to grow.

We are a product of what we believe.

Faith comes not but by HEARING, and HEARING by the WORD of God. Romans 10:17.

What is planted in the soil of our hearts, and nurtured will come to fruition. It will come to its harvest! Life or death! What is sown in your heart? Faith? Doubt? Confusion? Who is your teacher? The Holy Spirit? Youtube? Conservative television? Liberal media? When the big lie comes it will gather its own. The decision for truth begins now! And starts by plunging into the pure unadulterated word of God.

What is in our heart will bear witness to its Father.

Jesus told the Pharisees that their Father was the Father of lies. His sheep know His voice, a stranger they will not follow. But if the voices of this world is all that one is listening to, then how can they know the Lord’s voice?

Movements have already mounted themselves up on the power of their delivery. Ready to spring into action on what is believed as right. Posed to act as soon as the signal is given. The heart is secretly conditioned to respond, when the liar beckons to that harvest pre-sown, and nurtured by the spirit of the power of the air. Light and darkness will continue contrasting itself into the divide prophesied by Isaiah saying: Arise and shine for the glory of the Lord is risen, the glory of the Lord shines upon you. Deep darkness covers the earth, and gross darkness the people, but my light will shine upon you ..

Even among the household of the saints, are some among them, that will charge into action on what they allowed to pre-condition them, for many years. Heaping to themselves teachers tickling their ears. Inundated with information in this Information Age. If seeking to know the WORD of God, is not our daily bread, we will have little power to resist a global movement that is contrary to the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mathew 10 will be fulfilled. Jesus said, “You think that I have come to bring peace, but I have come to bring a sword.” Households will be divided against themselves. Because the WORD is a sword, come to cut the flesh from spirit. God’s WORD has brought divisions since Emmanuel (God with us) has come. Not that Jesus sent the sword of His word to separate people from Him. But, so that works of the flesh will be separated from them, by the circumcision of the heart. Removing the flesh from the Spirit, for the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Consequently, those who resist Him, will allow the enemy’s lies to divide them from the household of God, splitting families. So what we have filled our hearts with in the hour we live in, will come to light. In this, what dominates the heart will be exposed. Inordinate passions are carrying many away.

The bible says people will believe they are working for God, persecuting His people. But they are fighting against the King of Glory. Christians (by title only) are fighting against Him right now.

In fact, the worst are still the religious leaders of our day. Making dependents rather than disciples. Raising weak congregations under the control and power of sorcery. They say, “What? I have no sorcerers in my flock! Ask your congregation how many are medicated? More importantly how many are on behavior stabilizing medications, because outrageous behavior is out of their control? How many addicted to pain killers? This is a scourge ravaging the homes and streets of America. An epidemic of seismic proportion. If we can’t claim our sanctuaries, how are we going to claim the world for Jesus?

How many are under the power of satanic control?

Horrified, pastors may want to try to change this condition over night. But it didn’t happen over night. The sorcery laden culture of this nation, in many places, has its own habitation nested among Christian assemblies. Under a jurisdiction of a powerless gospel, because God’s people did not obey the Lord’s requirement first, before they went to do the work of the ministry: He said, “Go and wait; until YOU are endued with power from on high!” After that they were to make disciples of all nations.” Which simply means to create followers that hold to the discipline of the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ. The good news! Good for setting people free of bondage! Leading them into the fullness of Christ, by casting out devils, speaking in unknown tongues, laying hands on the sick, and being immune to any deadly thing. Mark 16:15-17. Few reach fo that kind of power in their walk.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty!

Colossians 2:6-15 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the un circumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Too often the wind and fire of the Spirit of renewal is quenched by those who resist the Holy Spirit, often because they mistakenly believe they are the head of the church assigned to control the saints of God, they will not yield to the Spirit working in other people’s lives. If a word, gift, directive, or movement of God, doesn’t originate from them, then in their mind, it is invalid. Rather than adjusting to the move of the Spirit and accommodating HIM, in how He wants to work, and whom He uses, these who regard none other than themselves (and their own ambitions) resist HIM!

Jesus is the brain.

The body, and that includes the presbytery, (elders) is run by the brain. They are subject not only to obey the head, but operate as a part of the body. Not the whole of it, but to honor the functionality of it, as God designed. As all parts working as one. Jesus is the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and the government- resting upon HIS shoulders (the woven bands of muscle ligament and bone) which is the *presbyters working together, lifting the burden of the Lord, bringing alignment to the head. By and through, the mind of Christ leading. Teaching, with the shepherding graces of God. ‘The Body of Christ’ is called that for a reason.

I once heard a pastor announce behind the pulpit that he was the head of the church, and that what he says goes! When a pastor, bishop or elder, declares himself as the head of the church and postures himself over the people as their head, than that is a clear indication that a man is head over that church! If no one sees the problem with that, then they are in error. The pastor and the people have made themself an idol, and they are dutifully following him. Ironically, the word pastor is more associated with the position of a deacon, then it is a Bishop. In the Strong’s Concordance the etymology for the word deacon mentions the word pastor as a description type to certain duties of deacons. While the word pastor, is only mentioned once, and refered to as “with uncertain origins.” So it is disastrous to the development of the Body of Christ, when the only authority given charge has no clear definition to his job description. A pastor by definition is not to be an overseer. An overseer is a bishop. Elders are encouraged to “shepherd the flock” as stated in 1 Peter, but deacons are there to serve, attend, and assist. So a Pastor is a servant, that attends and assists. But, He is not an overseer. Bishops are “lead elders” apt to teach, and are appointed by an Apostolic anointing. Deacons are chosen by the presbytery. In a congregation of believers there are Bishops, Elders, Deacons, disciples, and followers of Christ. This makes up the pasture of HIS flock. Bishops, Elders, and Deacons, assist in the shepherding of the flock. Overseeing, counseling, and attending their needs. But, sheep are sheep, they have among them ewes, ewes with lambs, and even rams. They themselves expand their flock, naturally. Do you see the picture? Many have been getting this wrong in the institutionalized church.

Jesus is jealous for His own! He has declared, “I am coming for what is mine!” The Lord Jesus Christ is not pleased that HIS name has been used to funnel in millions of dollars for the care of brick and mortar, left empty most the time, at the expense of hooves, fleece, and hides.

If any of HIS are there, God will deal with it. He will shake them up and out of that mess, and mercifully take what is His. For I assure you, the lamp stand in such a place will not abide. The Lord seeks and saves those who are lost, He will kick around the empty shells of form and formality, to find His living breathing ones, and pull them out. Still, the cry of the Spirit is COME! Come out from among her my people, lest you suffer in her punishments! Let us answer, by leaving Babylon. Let us answer by making Christ the HEAD of the Church! For years the Exodus has been blamed on the Exodees. A mote has been built around the infallibility of theses blind guides for they have shut out, chased off, and persecuted anointings rising up among them. Their congregation, consequently, has an effeminate nature; leading personalities have been weeded out! Disciples never really graduate, and the youth are the most active in the congregation because they are inexperienced, they are younger and pose no threat.

Jesus Is The Head of The Church!

Jesus does the thinking! The presence of the power of God flows through every part of the body at once systematically, as it does in the physical body, when the brain sends a signal to it. The shoulders bear up the core and aligns the body with the head and the whole person mobilizes at the brain’s commands! But guess what? This happens when the body sends up signals through the senses of what the body is in need of. Better than the analogy of the body is this- God knows what we have need of before we even ask!

Isaiah 9:6-7 to us a child is born, to us a son is given: and the government shall be on his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, on the throne of David, and on his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from now on even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this

How activated and knowledgable each part is of its own function, reflects how effective the word of God is being preached, in any given church. Another description of this is called equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. Study Ephesians the 4th chapter. If they can’t function as one in our meetings how are they going to function in any other work? If there be only one functioning part, the body is incapacitated. Even a football team knows how to act as one body. An NFL member knows his conduct and team spirit is important on and off the field. He knows his position like the back of his hand! His coach and team mates honor him as a part of the whole that does what he does. That includes making decisions when he has to adjust when things don’t always go as planned. The coach and team mates trust him as a trained team player, doing his part!

The natural world is smarter, in their natural wisdom, than many houses of God that dare to say they are the church.

Where is the power?

Very few preachers, themselves, can even rebuke a little cold virus. Let alone keep their flock growing in victorious living. Knowing who they are in Christ, and the authority they have! Not neglecting the great salvation Christ wrought for us at the cross. Many are still being taught basic fundamentals of Christianity, forever drinking milk. But never being taught how to go beyond the washing of the blood (that all must have), for the remission of sins, and into the meat of our destiny, beyond the laying on of hands and baptisms and into the power of the resurrection life. Churches shouldn’t be closing down because of the flu season. They should be chasing that devil out of town, and any other epidemic, pandemic, or stronghold seeking to take over. We are the the representation of Christ in the earth! The works he did we shall do also, and greater works shall we do, because Jesus has gone to the Father and He has sent His Holy Spirit! The word of God says to pray for the city that you live in that you may LIVE there in and PROSPER! Jeremiah 29:7 Timothy 2:1-2.

The Lord of Harvest will gather His own unto himself. Based on what is growing from the field of our hearts- the deceiver may have already passed by that field and have recruited many to his work. Because their source has never been the WORD. Even though they know the bible front to back. Even though they quote it, another has come in while they have slumbered, and have sown weed seeds. While Christians stumble around in their walk with God, in their refusal to stay in His Word, and obey it- weed seeds are rising, choking out the word, and more alarming- blinding them from what is right before their eyes. We have no idea when the day will come when many will find themselves not prepared. Not prepared to believe God for miraculous provision, direction, and divine intervention. Not prepared to test the spirits, to know whether they are from God, because of what lies they have nourished. As wisdom is known by her children, so the fool his folly.

We have those Christians that are strong, out spoken, loyal, patriots that are in the same condition. Seeding their hearts full of controversy, following after American idols, and icons, they say, “Hey I’m all about God and country.” But God is the red white and blue to them, their meetings are more about politics and conservative radio, and conspiracy theories; worshiping Jesus is forgotten.

The same goes for those on the opposite side that has made the government their God.

Who takes care of them right now? Is God their provider? When their country blesses them, they are blessed, justifies them then they are justified, when the government makes them strong they are strong. Jesus said I’m the ROCK in a weary land, I’m the ROCK that will make you stand! Trust not in the Chariots of Egypt!

Lord told me one time that He could do no great works in a place, because the folks were all on disability checks, and didn’t want to lose their disability. I asked the Lord why then do these people ask for prayer and come for meetings? He said it was just their form. There is a form of Godliness they are accustomed to, meeting requirements that they believe is an insurance policy for them, fire insurance. For some they are bound by their infirmity and it has become their god, their provision. Some are gluttons for attention, indulgent, they want an ear to listen to them, but they in turn won’t listen; so full of that spirit they are used by satan to tie folks up in conversations, pre-occupied with self.

Snaring gullible sheep, taken captive by those who refuse to be set free, and trust in God. We need to be stronger than that by not shrinking back! Let them know they can be loosed from their captivity every time they open their mouth to glorify it! Jesus gave his body to be beaten with many stripes, for by His stripes we were healed! Let us not serve death, but let us serve Him, the Living Word! It’s that simple. This is how bad this culture of dependence has become for all people who will not believe. The enemy uses those that have no intention to serve God, some call themselves Christians, to tie up workers of ministry, wasting precious time, life, and resources. Living out foolish living, talking about mindless, worthless things.

The fire of the power and presence of almighty God is able to burn out the brambles and weeds of this satanic nesting found in every church controlled of men and not God. If only pastors would take their hands off the controls and let God. He loves us so much that when HE is in charge HE disciplines with fiery love! It is the only thing that gets rid of the overgrowth and brambles we have neglected in our lives.

Decades of forestry management has proven one thing. Putting out natural fires only reserves the dead and the dry for an unmanagable inferno later on.

Let the weeds burn, and the brambles blaze, Jesus said, ” I come to bring a fire and would that it already be kindled!” Well it is kindled and always burning somewhere. We need the full Gospel, we need the fire. Rather, we’ve just had faux burnings. They put a banner on the building saying Revival Meetings Tonight! So we know there is going to be some loud preaching and prayer that night. It will be a controlled ignition of a controlled flame. It will burn from 7:00 to 8:45 pm. Miraculously it will have burned out just in time to get the kids home to bed on a school night.

Soon a fire of judgment will burn. If we don’t get our hands off it, and really let God! There are materials that won’t burn. The fire just passes through, but where there is neglect, where there is a pile of wood, hay, and stubble, it is going to get hot! That fire is going to linger. What should burn will, its dry, it has no life in it. Jesus said,

“If they do these things now when the tree is green, what will it be when the green tree becomes dry?”

All this ends with fire for all of us. Let us yield to the baptism of fire! For that fire refines!

The baptism of fire, is a cleansing agent to refine. When Jesus does what He said He was going to do, no saint should be surprised. These unscheduled burns, these heaven ignited fires, precision lightning strikes, are not going to be predictable. In the west we call them wild fires. They can burn so hot, they become tornadic, creating their own winds. Why? Years of mis-managed controlled burns. And the dousing out of wild ones.

God help us in America and especially the bible belt. While the West has burned natural, devastating fires, the bible belt will have its own burning. Generations of faux movements and scheduled revivals are going to have rude awakenings, if they do not wake up, and meet the Lord of glory on His terms. Secret sins among those living double lives, so entrenched in the community, that children, and even children’s children have gown up thinking nothing about fornication on Friday and Saturday night, and the Church worship team, on Sunday. But your sins will find you out, the bible says.

The point is there is power available to us to overcome. Through Jesus Christ, and no matter what our condition is we can have joy and victory no matter what challenges we have in life. Love does not let people believe their lies. All we can do is speak the truth in love and rebuke that spirit off them.

After a while that thing starts to thin out, when the authority and power to walk and stand in victory is taught. When the power of our words are taught. Those devils start lifting off, or the people possessed by them just leave because what is being preached messes up their doctrine of defeat. Or their love for a luke warm gospel. Eventually, a power packed congregation, or fellowship, emerges. A power packed meeting will have signs. The doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ needs to make a come back! I remember, living among saints who would bombard heaven for all to be healed and delivered. Healings and deliverances happened in our meetings until there was hardly a thing to pray about. Bound up folks who couldn’t pray or worship God, were prayed through. We began to see many saved and come to the Lord.

The Sword of The Spirit, And Dividing Rod Of Separations.

For those seeking the Lord, there will be seasons of separations. The Lord, by His Spirit is working a work among His people and now is a time that these things shall move at a feverish speed. Time already feels like it is flying by. More and more “responses” to the word of God will seemingly upset the apple cart but just know the SWORD of the Spirit is working divine separations. Not necessarily for eternity but for promotion of growth and discipline. The Father desires all be saved. He can graft us back in, as easy as he can raise up stones in our place to become Abraham’s sons. But, we can’t play games any more, there will be consequences for the stubborn of heart. Woe to him who is often reproved, the bible says, he shall be suddenly cut off and that with out remedy!

Ya’ll think your all right but you are not.

People don’t understand how their countenance can betray the fact that an evil spirit has them in bondage. Perfectly, normal looking people, taking on catatonic facial expressions, while the power of God is moving through prayer ministry, or the word. I’ve seen female faces turn into male. I’ve seen facial twisting. and drooling, and not while in a deliverance session! That is from those just listening to the word. I’ve seen a 6′ 2″ tall sodomite bound by a spirit of witchcraft, controlling other inmates, beg prison guards to let him out of the chapel, because he couldn’t stand the power of God manifesting.

When we would do warfare against that spirit in the chapel, they would start lining up at the door. After the ones that wanted out left, the power of God would always fall, setting at liberty those controlled by them. Healings, salvations, deliverances. One time the Holy Spirit chased off half the members of a prison gang, starting trouble. The other half stayed and listened, two stepped up, and received Christ. Always take the full gospel into your meetings, let the body of Christ be the body. The head will always BE THERE! And where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty!

Many times people say they have their problems because God is teaching them something. The only answer to why one is sick, for example, in the bible, is for God to display His power to heal them. No other answer is given to that direct question. When people say it is because of sin, they need to remember that Jesus forgave sin, in order to display his power and “wills” to do both. Forgive and heal. Once healed though the Lord warns, “Go and sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you!” The outcome was always healing. Except when doubt and unbelief prevailed in a city. They responded to what they were seeded with. Jesus could do no great works in some places because of their doubt and unbelief. Their teachers in the synagogue taught them, seeded their hearts with so much traditionalism it made the WORD of God, who came in the flesh and dwelt among them have no effect. When Jesus comes again will he find faith in the earth?

It is up to us to be caretakers of the garden of our hearts. A yearning for all God has for us is the motivator.

People believe that they will respond to the Lord of Glory, when He comes. They believe that they will gather with Jesus when He comes. When He came the first time a whole nation of people looking for their Messiah missed Him. Only a handful of saints compared to the world population even saw Him, come and go. What is seeded in our hearts, what we have been conditioned to believe, will either have us ready, or so weeded up in our hearts, and minds, it will all be over before we have time to scramble our lamps and oil together. Don’t think so?

Look at the parable of the ten virgins. Five foolish, and five wise. Five left in a panic, because they were not ready. Suddenly seeing what they lacked, but there was no time to do anything about it. They didn’t have enough to see themselves through the night. They knew enough though, that He came and went. Great regret will take hold of many who will lose what they could have had! For they were numbered with those of the wedding party. Pray that the weeds planted in your heart hidden and known will have an encounter with the fire of the Holy Spirit. Let it burn up every false and lying thing. You might lose a faux position in your faux little world, but what is ashes to the wind? Let God perfect you!

A few weeks ago the Lord showed me that ponies were meant to be horses. That they are a landrace. which is a species of a plant or animal altered from its original form as a product of their environment. God is pulling horses out of the ponies. They will be arrayed for battle. A pony can’t make the cut. They are for children and petting Zoos. Time is running out! Now is time to press in, for any day now a chain of circumstances can find us in the balance, found wanting!

Hebrews 5:12-13

... Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing you are dull of hearing. For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Return To Me Still – by deana barnes

For sunsets and the waters
That reflect them by the sea
For boys and girls and laughter
And thoughts their lives will be-

Splashing in the water now,
Little silhouettes in the sun.

The day grows dark so quickly now
Their Childhood is spun.

For youth is just a moment
Like the mist in morning rain-
And now we have to say good bye
Our brave heart on the plane.

For some they choose to rise and soar
In Freedom they abide …
What blood line came this soldier?
The jewel that lights my eye.

Where came this noble character?

To answer such a call
In days of never ending war,
This one who is our all?

Rather, with the free birds soar!
How much, spreading wings should fly!
Will thoughtful smiles return to me?
Or, Was brave heart born to die?

Are there numbers in the numbered,
to pay Freedom’s debt for peace?
Has the toll been prearranged,
from whom it is received?

Did they say yes, and choose somehow,
to not live so very long?
To die young in the battle fields,
postponing the victor’s song?

Was this a brave heart’s journey
to achieve freedom for the rest?
To pay the price to give their all,
giving only but their best?

And in that knowing, no one knows,
just why it has to be,
That freedom exacts a heavy toll

And never given free.

Are they chosen from our arms,
so quickly to be torn?
Christ himself, disclosed the cross,
“T’was for this that I was born …”

A question dare not spoken
A thought weathered to defy,
For the bounty of freedom’s garden,
was brave heart born to die?

Of Many Wars, Defeats, And Failures. Still God is. Ezekiel 17:22-24

Says the Lord GOD, “I will also take a young twig, from the top of a cedar tree and set it apart; I will pluck a tender one and carry it up, and plant it on a high towering mountain. “On the high mountain of Israel I will plant it, that it may spring forth with bough and branch and bear fruit and become a stately cedar. Where birds of every kind will nest under it; they will nest safely in the shade of its branches. “All the trees of such a field will KNOW that I am the LORD; I bring down the proud, exalt the low, and dry up the green tree, while making that one [thought to be lost] flourish. I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will perform it.”

Warning Dream: Treating Holy Things As Common. Call A solemn Assembly. Teach Them Fear. Sin of Insolence. Mishandling the Word of Life.

Job 28:28 And to man He said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.'”

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction

America, full of the knowledge of God. But do we know HIM?

I had a dream. A guy in his 30’s with an influence over young people was sitting with what seemed like a team of peers getting ready to do bible study ministry. They actually had those backward priest collars on, but the collars were broken at the voice box, or Adam’s apple. To be blunt they all had a frat brat air about them. Sorry, don’t know a better description. Any way, young sort of prideful theologians. I walked up to them in the corner of a very large library, in a place that was part of a vast open mall of sanctuaries, and auditoriums; a lot going on at once, like every Christian I ever knew was in this *mall, representing Christian America. About the time I approached this frat pack of theologians, I heard the lead guy say, “Yea, we’re going to go speak in tongues.” I walked up to him and said, “Cool, so you’re Spirit filled?”

Act 2:4 And they were all FILLED with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Speaking in tongues is evidence of being Spirit filled.)

I caught him off guard. He said, “Uhh no”, and looked around at his friends like where did SHE come from? Which I get all the time; anyway, to the young indignant one I said, “Well do you want to be Spirit filled?” He got real nervous and started looking around at his friends like, this woman is crazy! I’m thinking, what religious universe have these people been locked up in? I told him, “You can joke around about a lot of things, and maybe get away with making fun of people who pray in tongues, but you should never allow yourself or anyone else around you, to joke about the Holy Ghost.”

Hebrews 10: 29
Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, shall be thought them worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, by which he was sanctified, a common thing, and has done insult unto the Spirit of grace?

At that moment I heard a crack of thunder and could see a huge flat screen TV showing a weather report of the United States.

I saw clusters of storms light up the area above various cities and states across the US. The map was green like spring but this dream came last fall. Washington State really lit up in the western part of it, I thought of the Seattle area. The other cluster of storms that stood out seemed to be in the lower Missouri, Mississippi region. They lit up more than other places lighting up all over the map, they seemed like prolonged electrical storms.

America is too common with Holy things!

I thought the young men to be lacking in the fear of the Lord. If we as Christian ministers were priests of the old testament altar, many of us would be dragged out by the feet with shepherds crooks. Embolden to blaspheme, tossing out railing accusations against dignitaries, mocking the Holy Ghost, mocking His servants, mocking His prophets; being scornful, and disrespectful. Christians acting despicably calling themselves ambassadors of Christ, but they are brutish, narcissistic, embellishers, clouds with out rain; throwing their titles around for entitlements. And their degrees, as if that is what qualifies them for the work of the ministry. When being qualified comes, only, by setting ourselves apart, in seeking the face of God. surrendering to obedience; Relying upon His ability, having nothing to do with our own. Living a Godly life, hating even the garment, (the outer accessories) of Christian life, spotted by the flesh. I thought of all the churches who have clerics that wear the white band, to set themselves apart, but these were not set apart in their speech, revealing the condition of their heart. The white band broken at their voice box.

Prayers of repentance and judgments in the land.

I don’t believe some of these places, I saw in the dream, are more wicked than others, but they are more susceptible to trouble than others, when wickedness in the Church reaches its tipping point. While others have judgements poised against them, it is up to us to pray!

Narrow the way.

In our world, moods, opinions, and attitudes, can shift in waves over night. Because we are bonded together by social media and the internet. A story or news item portrayed in just the right way, can sway the masses, left or right. We can glorify God one moment, and grieve the Holy Spirit in the very next breath, by agreeing with false portrayals of what is suppose to be truth! Insolence, and the lack of the fear of the Lord, and the mishandling of sacred things, have moved Christian America to lean the wrong way. Being to common and careless with the mysteries and treasures of the king dom, joking foolishly, the bible calls it foolish jesting.

Straight is the gate and narrow is the way, that leads to life and few there will be who find it. Leaning left or leaning right is not the way! Wide is the gate and broad is the path to destruction and many there’ll be who will find it. Mathew 7:13-14 HIS way, in all things, is the hidden path found through Christ. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life!

When the Holy Spirit lifts.

Where HE is not, there goes the voice of warning, there goes all the gifts of perception, and fore-site, there goes the voice of one calling in the wilderness, making straight the paths of the Lord, there goes the ones holding back judgments.

The Lord has departed.

When He departs He takes the lamp stands with Him. His sheep know His voice they will go out and be lead into green pastures. It is one of the most silent mass moves of God on earth, when sheep are lead out. They are taken out of places where Christ in them, manifesting, is rejected. The good shepherd leads them out like sheep! You could gaze at a hill covered with them. Bend down and tie your shoe laces, zip your coat, and look back up, just to see that the sheep on a distant hill are no where to be seen. The remnant that is attached to (no thing or place but Him) go where he goes. They are always the ones found with Him. Seemingly, vanished in thin air, when He moves them out. When Jesus removes His lamp stands from a church, His people in that place that know Him, know when the SHEPHERD’S voice is gone, Jesus said, “My sheep know my voice and a stranger they will not follow.” His mercy never fails and no matter what or where- whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. He remains a very present help in times of trouble as long as we have breath. We need Him now more than ever, and we need the blessed Holy Spirit of comfort and truth. The Christian mall of America needs to understand the Spirit of the Fear Of the Lord. Let us who pray, do so.

Isaiah 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge, and the spirit of the fear of the Lord.

Call a Solemn Assembly!

The young men in the dream were found in the library. Ever learning and never coming to the truth. All the books in that library didn’t bring them to the truth they needed, to live a blameless life. And brazen they were on how they handled God’s Holy Spirit and His Saints. Would that these young theologians would be as the twelve, Paul met in Ephesus! Teachable!

Paul was received by a group of disciples that only knew John’s baptism!

Acts 19:1-7

And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, AND prophesied. And all the men were about twelve.

John’s Baptism: Water baptism is a baptism of repentance, otherwise described as John’s baptism. Until this day many are only baptised in this baptism, rejecting the fact there is another baptism often received by the laying on of hands. It’s the baptism John referred to as the baptism of the Holy Ghost and of Fire, that Yeshuah baptizes us with.

Even during Paul’s ministry years after the Ascension of Christ, there were still believers in John’s baptism only; as there are today.

In water baptism we are publicly repenting of our sins, as a witness to all that we are dead, buried, and raised, with Christ, as a new creation; old things are passed away and behold all things becoming new. As we go down and come up in the water, we display that. Confessing our sins is the beginning of our journey with Jesus; if we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sin, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. The water depicts that cleansing, as well. Coming up from the water sheds light on the understanding that we are a new creation, a new man or woman; therefore, we should live our lives as dead to our old nature. This is called repentance which simply means to ” turn away from.” Water baptism is not what saves us but it is what describes our salvation, and is a public testimony of our decision for Christ, following HIS example in water baptism. As we look forward to the redemption of our bodies, in the hope of the resurrection. Still, new testament saints called it John’s baptism.

Life in the letter only, is like having a sailboat in a waterless sea.

Jesus’ Baptism

Jesus’s baptism is a Spirit and fire baptism, received by the laying on of hands. Or by faith in believing upon Jesus while hearing God’s word. It is an event that is not silent or without demonstration, in other words you WILL KNOW when you become Spirit filled! We will see that in the passage below. The Holy Spirit baptism can come before water, and even during water baptism. But, not before repentance or a decision to follow Christ, is made. It is an event we yield to in receiving. The Holy Spirit and fire baptism gives us what we need to walk in power, be purified, and taught in truth; have supernatural comfort in separations and sorrows; and a supernatural boldness to testify in the face of persecutions. The Holy Spirit disperses supernatural giftings among the saints, beginning with unknown tongues and branching out from there. If the church can’t get tongues right, the least of all the gifts, how will they get anything else right? As it is with our own tongue in conversation. Tame that tongue that sets off the fires of hell, and everything else falls into line. Get the gift of tongues operating fluently in God’s divine order, let that ministry rise up, and unbelievers will come into belief, for the scripture says that the gift of tongues is for the unbeliever. We can be believers in unbelief over many things. Tongues interpreted is a sign. Let the heavenly language flow! Building up your most Holy faith by praying in the Holy Ghost! As Paul said, “I will pray in the Spirit, and I will pray in my understanding, also.” All that believe the Holy Spirit comes with out demonstration, have very little demonstration of power in their own life. It is the same for those that believe it is God’s will for them to be sick. Or that God does not always desire his people to be well. It never seems to be God’s will for them to be well, in their lives. However, those who believe He wants his people to be healthy, and whole, have more instances of healing in their lives. Yet, after all we have been given to know Christ and Him crucified, and the great benefits of our salvation, many are still not advancing past these elementary teachings of faith.

Let us go on from the elementary teachings of baptism, and the laying on of hands …

Getting it right and moving on,

Hebrews 6:1-2 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

Like the theologians in my dream, and even those in Pentecost – many Spirit filled Churches are stuck on tongues. So stuck they don’t even want them to manifest any more. This is a sure sign of immaturity in the church, as much as it is when people are not understanding gifts of the Holy Spirit of God, or the fivefold ministry. When an assembly is too focused (against or for) manifestations of the Spirit, they are weak and immature. For these things are given to supply every need, that each part supplies. If no one understands the ministries set among us as it is written in Ephesians 4, to equip the saints; we will not grow up into the head, nor shall we ever be unified. For it is clearly written in this passage that this is what these ministries do. If all you have in your assembly is a pastor, then run!! You will never mature in Christ! For this same reason we can never expect to be unified with any who call themselves Christian, that rejects the baptism of the Lord Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit and with fire. Of them who say the apostles and prophets are no more. For it takes these anointings along with the rest, to accomplish unification, by equipping the saints, who can then mature into the head!

Various denominations can intermingle all day long, but all they usually do is agree to disagree about who, mainly? The person and endtimes ministry of the Holy Ghost! The only way a people can come together in Christ of one mind, is by the power of the Holy Spirit! I will never agree NOT to ask any one, if they have received the Holy Spirit since they have believed, in order to keep the peace! I am not ashamed of Him, the Holy Spirit of God.

Churches get stuck on the next level after the in filling, and I mean many!

If all we can do is focus on what our parts are, and what they can do, such as the function of the hand and foot … How can we focus on just being whole and useable unto God? Books and DVDs, podcasts and websites, classes, upon classes, all about being what you are called to be, rather than doing what you are called to do!

Not only that, but teaching people there is not a Spirit fire baptism is more than just an error. It is encouraging the saints of God to obey the great commission with out being endued with POWER from on High. Jesus said, wait until you are! Any minister that calls themself a follower of Christ, that rejects the baptism of the Holy Spirit is ill equipped, I don’t care how many certificates and honorary doctorates they have! Water and Spirit baptism are separate experiences that can happen in rapid succession, but the Holy Spirit ALWAYS comes after a decision for Christ is made. Whether it’s a matter of seconds or days. Seek all He has for you! Be faithful in the little things, God will trust to you more! When trouble comes will Christian America be able to weather storms with out the help of the comforter and the Spirit of truth? Without being endued with power from on high? Will teachings against the work of the Holy Spirit of God prevail in America? Will the youth of tomorrow have no need for Him? But, actually cross the line treating Him and God’s servants with contempt? Pray it won’t be so. Warn them. Warn them. Warn them.

Acts 10:30- AKJV

The Gentiles Hear the Good News

Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that fears him, and works righteousness, is accepted by him. The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) That word, I say, you know, … How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly; Not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of the quick and dead. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whoever believes in him shall receive remission of sins.

How much more do we need the same Holy Ghost and power Jesus walked in!

(Joel 2:28-32; John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Acts 2:1-13; Acts 19:1-7)

While Peter yet spoke these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

What Malls mean In dreams.

*malls in dreams (when symbolic), speak to a trending/collection of thought, belief, or popular world views, and/ or attitudes of the times; of a town, city, democracy, community, region, or nation- depending on the location of the mall. A conglomeration of occupations, thought, and/or practices; all under one roof. Malls assemble commonality of tastes, among a variety of goods, and services; and reflect acceptable norms of society. Right wrong or indifferent. Depending on the nature of a mood or message being relayed. In this dream Christendom in America was being reflected in all the ways it exists. The focus was upon the up and coming bible ministers, full of book training, embarking upon their ministry, flanked with arrogance and hostility towards the Holy Spirit. In a time where the wisdom of God is counted as foolishness to men, and the foolishness of men, is wisdom unto God. They are ever learning and never coming to the truth. Under the same roof of us all! A powerless gospel puts God’s people in peril when storms rise! With out the Spirit of God, and the Spirit of the fear of the Lord, bible study training is a sailboat with no wind, in a waterless sea.

Note: A specific mall known by the dreamer may very well just mean, that mall. For dream coaching click on the CONTACT US! Link for questions.
