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.

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.

What Doors With Windows Mean In Dreams

Prophetic Dreams.

The Dreamer is standing in the foyer of her home looking at a beautiful glass windowed door, the door is blocked by a wood panel and taped. Another door is in the foyer in the inner part that is in the same condition, blocked in the same way.

Dear A——-, this is a coaching segment on symbolism that is in your dream and not an official interpretation. If it were an out right interpretation I would know by the Spirit of God how to apply the symbolism more specifically to what is going on in your life. That doesn’t mean what I have written here can’t be connected to your heart by the Holy Spirit while you read this. In fact, it usually works out that way.

A foyer is a place of readiness. In the foyer you are getting prepared to answer the door or exit through it. So it is a staging place in readiness for change. Doors often speak of opportunities that bring change. Change that enters into your environment or that you yourself would move into.

Built into the door, in your case, is a capacity to reveal to you what is beyond it. Normally, we must wait to open a door to know what is happening on the other side. This door has a window so in your going out, and coming in, you should have some ability for prophetic insight regarding your life encounters through the Holy Spirit, before you actually experience what you’re going to be doing. Remember, the revelation of Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy. He is the light of the world. If the window is ornately obscured glass, it would reference prophetic impressions. These impressions require waiting on the Lord for more revelation. In other words your gift of prophecy relies more on the ambiance of light and shadows. Impressions of the Spirit. Clear glass windows providing clear viewing, would speak to the seer anointings that have more clarified prophetic encounters. So these differences in the type of window in your dream are reflective of the prophetic gift type.

Regardless, your door that is designed to let light in, is obscured. It is a man made blockage carefully cut and taped. Is it inside or out? If the blockage is on the inside of the door than the obstruction is coming from with in. If on the outside than with out. This is your revelatory giftings being blocked by man made obstructions. Church doctrine, religious teaching, opinions of people- from where ever it comes, you have the power to “peel it off”. You can incorporate your dream language into prayer by saying,

” I want these obstructions removed from these beautiful windows that are suppose to let the light in, and allow me to see, accurately, in the way God has designed for me, and I will pursue the activation of revelatory giftings in my and home, through the promise of the Father and His son Jesus Christ.”

Note:
At times the natural and spiritual entwines, so because obscured vision is a security issue, check your natural security systems, in the home, as well. I’ve had dreams of doors being open at night, and actually discovered a faulty lock on our back door. Just a reminder that dreams can sometimes uncover real life problems and are not always just spirit or soul matters. If you have any questions feel free to continue corresponding with us. In Christ.

Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others weigh what is said. I Corinthians 14:39

In other words always seek conformation from more than one source when accepting prophecy for interpretation of dreams and visions.

Hello Dee,

Thanks so much for interpretation and yes I will seek opinion but I believe this was quite correct. I’ve been told many times about my seer anointing and have a deep hunger to fulfill gifting.

Blessed..

Crown Jewels

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

 

The lord gave me a picture.

I saw a lovely Christian woman with beautiful earings on. The earings were diamond and ruby. She was very elegant. She was sitting with imageher head slightly down, and I could see (on her other ear) all the jewels had been removed. She took them off to talk on the phone. I thought to my self they were her Crown Jewels. I looked down at her hand and saw an old land line phone. I saw how she took her “Crown Jewels” off to have a conversation. I remembered back in the day ladies would take their earings off to talk on the phone.  I said, “Lord, What are you showing me here?”

Crown Jewels belong to the House of the Royals. They come out of the palace vaults to be worn by Kings and Queens for special occasions. As Christians we are of a Royal Priesthood.

1 Peter 2:9 King James Version (KJV)

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his everlasting light.

This Lady, this beautiful woman, represents all of us in Christ! His Bride.

The special event where we wear our Crown Jewels, is our salvation that we celebrate every day of our lives.

Hebrews 2 :1-3

Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have HEARD, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was CONFIRMED unto us by them that HEARD him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and GIFTS [treasures] of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will ..

She removed her Crown Jewels to have a conversation through an old land line phone.

Now days, we talk through the airways. In this vision airways would represent a spiritually uplifted conversation. But this was an earth bound line of communication. It was earthy. We always need to remember where we come from, and who we are, in Christ. Ladies and Gentlemen of the Kingdom, can you remember the last conversation you had, where you actually stepped down from your blessed position in Christ Jesus, just to meet eye to eye?

I think we all can! The Lord doesn’t want us to shed off what He paid such a high price for, that HE now has adorned us with. The (robe of righteousness, and mantle of our call) over lines of communication that would be cut off by the other end, if we let ourselves be genuinely His, in the sight of all men.

Sadly, many tolerate conditions imposed upon them by unbelievers, and Christians in unbelief.

Desiring that we edit our conversation to leave out what makes them feel uncomfortable. Do you have a relationship like that?

Whether the land line represents worldly conversations, or Christian communication that rejects the treasure we possess knowing Him; or is filled with gossip and tale bearing- we need to DISCONNECT that line!

Should we veil the sparkle of our Lord’s eye? Should we cap the flame of HIS Spirit to enjoy what we think is Christian fellowship? Should we hide the lamp of our salvation under a table?

Hunger for God appreciates every drop of joy that emanates from HIS people! Every ounce of love come from the Father, in all its forms; fruits and gifts of the Spirit, mantles and mandates of the KING! Let your light so shine among men! Fellowship is like a flowing river, it inspires; it spurs one another on to GOOD works. It should not be competitive, but rejoices in the truth, and seeing Jesus aglow in others.

Relationships that push against that, are earthbound religious connections that have no need, or desire, for more of Jesus. Their commonality may be Christianity but it may not be the LORDSHIP of Jesus Christ in their life. They may enjoy talking about CHURCH but initiating a Spirit filled, or Spirit led conversation, becomes awkward or one sided. The believer often feels like they just cannot connect with this person that is suppose to be a Christian. They will often find themselves compromising to keep the peace or keep the connection. The earth bound conversation the Bride of Christ was having over the phone- required HER to bow to a lesser authority than the one whom has redeemed her. Any relationship that pulls us into a soulish line of communication is exactly that, soulish.

We need to disconnect from lines of communication that are not Holy Spirit inspired; and rather, upgrade to a connection that benifits the thirsty and hungry soul that needs what we have, or shares in it. Kindred relationships that, simply, love us at our best! As we should them. Desperate souls soak in God’s love! Fellowship with the poor in spirit, is spending time with some one that never has enough of Jesus! Mathew 5:3 says, “For theirs is the kingdom of God.” They shall obtain it in their hunger, and humility.

Another type of relationship that turns into an earth bound connection is one that has a political nature to it. I’ve said this before and it is absolutely true. Any one effected  by the power of peer pressure, is under political control. Entertaining that land line is a land mine of compromise, that always leads to hypocrisy. False humility, and shallow relationships, because the Saint of God was forced to take off their Crown Jewels in order to even CONNECT. It’s a pay to play kind of deal, that secures power over unified assembles in their fellowship and worship, supporting those that comply to its control, and pulls down those that don’t; neutralizing, if not paralyzing  Spirit filled praise and worship that brings down the glory of God, in our meetings. Often times resistance against the moves of God are not from with out, but from with in.

Peer pressure rarely swings anyone into a positive zone. This is why we know it is usually demonic oppression behind it.

The woman I saw was holding the phone in her hand, by the twisting cord, as it dangled to her side. We need to hang up on bad company and disconnect with that old religious python, that hates the Crown Jewels of the people of God. Relentlessly, dissecting, and debating, the word of truth with, “Has God said?” Let your light shine and reconnect with the salt and light of the earth. Avoiding vain babblings.

Another thing we may be in the habit of doing, is taking a step down from our position in Christ, to give ear to counselors, that have less counsel than we do! Don’t tolerate cords that keep you bound to a line of communication that is spiritually bankrupt! That wastes your time and life. Never cover your lamp with the prideful lying shades of false humility. It is a temptation come from an accusation of Satan, designed to side line the Saints of God, every time they try to step out in obedience to their gift and call! That old Pharasutical remark, even Jesus had to endure, is implied by that prince and power of the air, saying “Who do you think YOU are, we know where you come from?” Familiar with the short comings of the saints but never familiar with their gift and anointing. Aware of their humanity but resistant to the Spirit of Christ in them.

Therefore do not be partakers with them

Ephesians 5:6-13 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God on the children of disobedience. Be not you therefore partakers with them. For you were sometimes in darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatever does make manifest is light.

Don’t take your Crown Jewels off to satisfy a religious spirit, who has rejected the wonderful details of their own great salvation. We were born to bring GOD glory. Wear the garments of HIS praise, be of HIS Royal Priesthood, peculiar. The event is your Salvation. The Crown Jewels are the gifts of His promise, and graces HE has adorned YOU with! The light reflected from what HE has given you, is HIS light. It will draw to Him them that love the LIGHT.

purple-grapes-vineyard-napa-valley-napa-vineyard-39351.jpegA few days ago I was pruning back the over growth of our grape vines. So many really good looking runs had to go. Reminding me  of the careful, loving hands of  God, that prunes us back for reasons of fruitfulness, and viability.  To save our lives, and to ensure kingdom productivity. This means He does everything in His  power to finish the good work that he has begun in us, as the author and finisher of our faith. From the faithful son to the prodigal. His goal is to bring us home, that we can abide with Him, in His House.

God the Father is the Lord of the harvest, and resides over this work of salvation being wrought in the earth. Him who desires that no man perish; but, that all will come into the knowledge of the son. At the time that I was pruning my grape vines, this article began to trend on my website. So I’m taking that as a sign it’s a word for the season.   – God bless.

For The Sake Of Fruitfulness

Recently, the Lord gave me a picture. I saw a tree, it was in great shape. A nice full tree with viable limbs and thick with foliage.

As I was observing this tree all of a sudden a branch grew out from one of the limbs, and as it grew I began to notice that it was a dead branch. Now how can a dead branch grow?

Read: For The Sake Of Fruitfulness  by clicking the link below, the article will answer the following questions, and more.

1.What is the destruction of the flesh?

2. What exactly are works of the flesh?

3. When does mercy end and judgment begins?

Isaiah 4:-3-6

And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem: When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the middle thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. And the LORD will create on every dwelling place of mount Zion, and on her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night …


And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and from rain.

He that endures to the end, shall be saved.

According to the encyclopedia most modern ponies were once horses that developed a small stature because they lived on the margins of livable horse habitat. A pony will always be a pony but originally it was a horse. Now bred to be different breeds. A pony is a dwarfed horse because it lived in an environment that could not sustain it. So it adapted. A horse in dreams often represent power. In this dream I’m about to share, remember, it ends well for them who endure to the end. Who yields to their maker, that He can draw out from them, the power of their potential, in Christ.

There are religious strongholds in the land that dwarf the development of God’s people by quenching and resisting the Holy Spirit. Having a form of Godliness but denying the power there of. Clouds, the bible says, without rain. This condition creates a religious environment, that cannot sustain Christian growth and true maturity. Rather, it is producing the faint of heart, and unprepared disciples, that will have difficulty withstanding days of difficulty. Simply because their full potential has never had the opportunity to develop past getting saved, and on to abundant life training. Where our circumstances don’t dictate to us how we live our life in Christ, but our life in Christ demands circumstances to bow and serve Him. All should be filled and endued with power from on high. Acts 2, all should know their authority as believers. Quenching the Spirit in our meetings creates dependence, not disciples. Few anointings have the opportunity to rise up, and be trained in Spirit led training. God calls them out. Generations of a powerless gospel have produced a sub species of Christian that cannot break from its mind set, but for God! If a pastor wants to know the health of his congregation, and their strength and trust in God, all he has to do is count those medicated on pills, struggling with sin, and addictions;  those living on government assistance, and the in firmed. If a congregation is sitting under the restraints of an institutionalize Christianity, there will be many in that state of living.  I’m not trying to be harsh or judgmental here, but we have to look at the truth in regard to the condition of the Church. Who and what she is dependent on. Christ Church should not be medicated, broke, and dieing.

Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?

Only God can stretch a horse out of a pony. But they will have to leave the pony farm, to become their full potential. Ponies are desired for Children. They are not desired for battle. If we as pastors are raising up those that will endure to the end, that is commendable. Let us go further, and seek to train them to run with endurance, to the end; this great race set before us. 

Zechariah 10:3 (AMP) My anger is kindled against the shepherds [who are not true shepherds], And I shall punish the male goats (leaders); For the LORD of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, And will make them like His majestic horse in battle.

I had a prophetic dream after a believer’s meeting in our home town. I feel that in it is a word for believers who live in areas of the Bible Belt. My phone rang sitting on the night table, (like it wasn’t a dream) and I picked it up and there was a loud beast of a voice on the other end screeching at me. I knew it was a rulership of darkness over the area, and we must have rattled its cage the night before. I knew this had something to do with our intercession for the city. I couldn’t make out any words, the call came from main street downtown. While the voice continued screeching, I knew I needed to keep talking, and speaking the word, and I could tell the teachers anointing was in it. The voice on the phone seemed to be the embodiment, of all the push back felt in this area since the Lord’s assignment 8 years ago. After quite a while the voice tamed down and became more and more human sounding, and I began to make out the words it was saying.

The short of it was that a demonic controller named RIFT, come out from the root of rebellion, was raging against our intercession, and ministry of the spoken word, over the phone! A prince and power of the air! The voice was very animated, and boastful. Very opinionated, and letter of the law, while acting as an illegal operative, against God’s people. Wise in its own eyes, while an ignorant form of bible knowledge poured out of RIFT’s mouth, and it was divisive. Rift’s human agents resist the Holy Spirit, spread legalism, and seed discord.

1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness as idolatry.

All I could think of was that the end game for those bound by this darkness was under developed christians, dwarfed in their potential by being made deaf, dumb, and blind. A spirit of rebellion that found a place to become a stronghold in a deeply divided land. A land with a church on every corner. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, or divination.

The night before we were praying, and repenting, and repenting for God’s people, even mentioning ancient divisions so intense that blood was spilled on the ground. Where there is division and strife there is every evil work. If strongholds of God are not lifting oppression off the land and establishing Christ, the Living Word, then darkness remembers its abode. The church cannot retreat with out devils seeking back their haunts. Seven times with seven more. If divisions plagued the land before, they will again, until that power is broken. Spirits move in because ground is lost, not taken. Jesus said OCCUPY until I come. Not regress. When evil spirits trespass it is time to remind the enemy of our inheritance, that we have one, and walk in it.

As I was on the phone I walked the five miles to town towards where the phone caller was calling from, decreeing the WORD the whole time. Until I came to a fuel station, and stood near a gas pump, and saw a gas tank-truck start to tip over. Right at a CONVENIENT store, where they sold fuel. Think about it. This voice of rebellion was still running its mouth. I cried out, run!

The fuel station exploded. It was like I went down to see a fire ignite right there where that Satanic stronghold called me from. It was there I snatched from the flames two living beings. Fire poured out to the ground like a river. I saved what I could so that it wouldn’t be destroyed by the fire, and escaped into a steel walled building. It had steel, riveted doors, and concrete. It was a fire proof shelter, and I headed up to the second floor. I saw a huge garbage disposal. It “contained” the fire as flames rolled in from outside. Burning trash only, and the place was like a furnace. The consuming fire from the fuel station, was transformed into a refining fire, as the fire proof structure brought controls to the inferno, burning trash only.

Jesus-Luke 12:49 Amp

I have come to cast fire on the earth; and how I wish that it were already kindled!”

There were others there nearer to the furnace withstanding the flames. Even closer than I. They were operating equipment that kept the fire contained, burning trash only. They were intercessors, and Angels. I felt bad for the two animals I saved from the fire. A pony and bunny, because in some ways I brought them closer to the heat. Even though they were saved from the fire. The pony was very uncomfortable. The fire wasn’t effecting me, but the bunny passed out. The two are a picture of how important it is to make ourselves ready, so we can endure to the end. So we won’t be the faint of heart, but rather actively involved as end times intercessors. What good are we if we pass out having little courage, or like the pony, trying so hard to bear the heat, but barely able to even move? The intercessors, interceding in the furnace room, narrowed the burning down to refuse only.

We have only a short time left to contend for ground, that it become a habitat for growth. That God can pull the horse out of the pony, no longer stunted by a powerless religion.

Jeremiah 6:27-30

“I [the Lord] have set you as an assayer [O Jeremiah] and as a tester [of the ore] of My people, That you may know and analyze their acts.” They are all the worst [kind] of [stiff-necked, godless] rebels, Going around spreading slander. They are [not gold and silver ore, but] bronze and iron; They are all corrupt.

The bellows blow fiercely,
The lead is consumed by the fire;
In vain they continue refining,

But the wicked are not separated and removed. They call them rejected silver [only dross, without value], Because the Lord has rejected them. ( They are burning dross only).

Because the seed fell on rocky, weedy, shallow ground.

Mathew 13

The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’

We have to break out of what confines us, always seeking for more of God. Being so hungry and thirsty for the bread and water of life, that we break through the four walls of false religion. Pressing in to the upward call of God. Not allowing ourselves to become acclimated to a culture or environment that quenches the Holy Spirit ever again. This would restrict anyone’s spiritual growth. John, who water baptized, said Jesus will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire. Continue to:

Seek and you shall find, Knock and the DOOR shall be opened to you. Ask and you shall receive. – Mathew 7:7

Derek Prince And Deliverance

Derek Prince, in this video, is preaching on playing church, and religious spirits, and a lying spirit manifests in the meeting. People! This was real then and it is even more real today, as we move towards the end of the age. I can absolutely testify that religious spirits manifest when light exposes their masquerade. Revealing the enemies lies. People wonder why they can sit just fine in their church, Sunday after Sunday, year after year; but then go to a Spirit filled meeting and end up foaming at the mouth on the floor, or running out the door! It is because religiosity doesn’t change us, nor does it grow us. It keeps us looking good, and will even promote us. While a masked charade continues its work in our lives. Until the Living Word is released in His power. No matter how Full Gospel a church can claim to be, if that church quenches the Spirit of God, then there will be bondage, that bondage keeps us as slaves. For where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty! We can talk power, preach power, and walk like we got power, but yielding to the Holy Spirit is the only thing that brings in the power!

Living Abroad Prophetic Warning

12/28/2017 Formally titled: A City In Asia

Proverbs 22:3 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished.

Prophetic warning for a city somewhere in Asia.

In a dream I was a westerner in an Asian city. Let me describe this city to you. It was an area like an older downtown. Very active with a lot of people coming and going. There were a few Caucasian’s there, I could say from America

screenshot_2017-09-30-09-11-521448364831.png

but I don’t know, nothing I saw gave me a clue from where they came. I’m thinking, perhaps, English is not a barrier. These were not, necessarily, tourists. I came out of my apartment down some narrow stairs to the street, it wasn’t a new building, but well kept-up with clean side walks. Things seemed close and compacted together. There was nothing that looked third world around me. But the street seemed to be teeming with market activity. Lots of food venders and restaurants. In this dream those that lived in (what looked like a down town) made it a habit to step outside and procure meals for the day.

The open market had all kinds of fresh food, and even pre-made noodles. The vender would pull up a measure and bag them for the recipient to go warm them up later at home for a meal. Also, I could just walk across the street and go into a café and eat there, instead. In fact, this was what I had just done before stopping at the market place. Also, it appeared to be a pedestrian dominated area. I noticed the outdoor market was in the sun. It seemed the street was not in deep shade of high rises, nor was it dank, or smoggy. I didn’t see signs of impoverishment. I found my self fourth in line to purchase something from a vender. I noticed I was wearing a bright orange t-shirt. I saw a few other westerners wearing these shirts. It was a shorts friendly day outside. I never wear orange and I never eat noodles. I don’t wear a watch and I am female. So, I’m not myself in this dream. I have never been any where in an Asian country. I did think I could be some where in Hong Kong, but I know better than to assume things like that because I have been mistaken before. I saw the mall massacre in Nairobi, Kenya just 24 hours before it occurred, September 21, 2013; but thought I was in Syria because of days spent praying for that region, but I was in Nairobi in the aftermath of a mall attack. When I saw the news photos of the building where it happened, I knew then it was Nairobi. I’m not going to do that again. Nevertheless, my mind may not have known the place but God knew and prayers went up, I’m sure less happened there than was planned because of the saints of God who pray for this world. I would have done better to describe the floor tiling in the mall, and the landscape out doors. I have to say if the Lord wanted me to know He would have told me, for He has.

Again, I’m being detailed to shed light on prophetic processes.

Anyway, the people native to this place were Asians and lighter skinned than say people of Cambodia or Thailand. As far as westerners and the people native to this area there were no other cultural differences in dress, mostly casual to business casual on this day. More like Saturday go to market casual … In the dream I received my goods from the market and turned to the building, where my apartment was, to take home, for dinner, later.

This is when I began to hear a narrative run through my mind as it were from the Father. He said, “What would you do if something happened and you would not be able to collect your meal from these each day?” The thought stunned me because I realized my dependency on the vendors and cafes’. That really I didn’t have any store to speak of, food or water, that would last more than just a day. I wondered at my recklessness in such a world we live in. I began to think of scenarios that would suddenly stop commerce, and felt the panic of such a thing. The scene changed and I was in a crisis. I didn’t see destruction. But the venders and shoppers were gone. The businesses were closed. The dream ended with my character, back before the crisis putting together an emergency kit and stocking his cupboards. Some items gathered were light for flight and non cumbersome.

When I woke up I knew the orange t-shirt meant a warning for foreigners in this place. Particularly, those clearly of the Caucasian race, I don’t know why other foreign races were not pointed out.

Orange in nature and in the civilized world is used to warn. Why they were wearing orange may be because being non native born, without family in the area, they would be more at risk. Being caucasian clearly pointed out one as foreign. Public opinion can turn quickly in politically tumultuous times. For example when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Japanese Americans were taken to concentration camps for national security purposes. I’m also thinking that the age group in the dream, if they were Americans, they have never had an interruption of basic food supplies in their life time. They may not understand the impact world events could have on them over night. That the vendors in that market, don’t necessarily, live in town; but, come there to sell and buy their goods- their risk could be less than those dependent on the downtown being supplied. For many, living downtown was a trendy pursuit to do so, by young native-born professionals, and westerners alike.

One other note was that I clearly saw a young Asian woman wearing a yellow light pull over sweater. I thought of the act of yielding, waiting … I thought for some, such crises would require preparation to wait it out. She walked wearing a blouse and sweater. This a casual sign of readiness in the event of atmospheric change. So, when the temperature changes for her she will have more flexibility to respond, as a born citizen of this region. I would say if this dream has any warning in it, that seemed to come out of the clear blue sky … An event in such a place would be very trying if not dangerous to not have a plan. Really, it should be a habit for everyone to consider a plan B, in order to survive, or at least not have to make choices, less desirable out of desperation. Which is another topic God’s been speaking to me about altogether, to remind His people what we trust Him for, and how much we rely upon Him, even when times are good, this is what will bring us stability and presence of mind when times and circumstances suddenly change. Wisdom is justified by her children. As Solomon said, look at the ant. I don’t know why I had this dream. But because what God has shown me over the last three decades with Somalia, Mozambique, Syria, Nairobi, and more recently the Congo Ebola out-break; I can only pray, warn, and document. *

Deana Barnes 12/29/2017 11:59 am.

*Again just a day or two after this dream, I had another: Two or Three young Caucasian men on a city street, thirsty and faint with hunger. It seemed like some kind of dust kick up, but the scene was not the same, now they are more away from the downtown area, and when I say downtown it could have been a trendy older city street near a more modern area. Where young Caucasian foreigners were now among a mixture of city and country people and there seems to be a bench. One of the young men is sitting on it exhausted. With just the clothes on his back, moving through a scene that seems desperate. I don’t know what this dream is all about but there is a wisdom in it.

When we are wise in our ways desperation cannot take us places we would rather not go. This young man was living vicariously. Moment to moment like many people do. Wouldn’t it be ridiculous to have to run to the streets in the middle of a crisis looking for water, when one could have stayed where they were at until things settled down; or, had a readiness pack to take with them? This is true with the condition of our souls, we can have assurance in Christ now, we can be in a place (spiritually) prepared for what ever comes. Even knowing what lies ahead and how to prepare. First and for most our souls need to be made ready for Christ’s return.

Beyond that, if God’s warnings are needed for spiritual preparation only, why was the Prophet Agabus used by the Spirit to warn of a famine during the time of the first Apostles? Why did Barnabas and Saul bring famine relief to the believers in Judea? Furthermore, if people think prophets are not suppose to speak of future events in this church era; but, only to edify, exhort, and comfort, then they need to study Acts 11:27, and Acts 28:27. As well as consider John’s book: The Revelation Of Jesus Christ. Or, take my view of it all and perhaps broaden their understanding of what edification, exhortation, and comfort, of the saints, all entails. In the world we live in today, I have seen tragedy in the lives of God’s people, because they viewed a prophet’s prophetic warning as a negative report, and would not receive it. I’ve seen God give a two year advance warning against cancer that was called an evil report, two years later the cancer was discovered too late. Had they just checked it out … On the other hand there was a family warned to begin canceling out an assignment against their daughter’s life. They began to pray over their adult child, and God miraculously spared their daughter’s life in a bicycle/ car accident just a week later. No lasting injuries. What the Church should do is go back to the pattern of a Jerusalem council to seek God for wisdom, and resolve, when visions, dreams, words and prophecies are released to the body, to get specific answers from God on how to move forward. Why not set up a prophetic prayer council among the body, to process all words given? The bible says let the prophets stand and judge! So let them. To confirm a word, seek on it, or receive of a move of God’s Spirit, or take actions to avoid adversity. But we don’t really do that much any more … We just stand back and watch to see if what was prophesied “comes to pass.”

Church, when are we going to activate our power and influence in the earth? It is time to rise and shine. Let’s become the people of Isaiah 60:1, 61:1, 62:1; in the Earth. Pastors stop paralyzing your people with fear of prophets, and prophecy, and begin teaching God’s sheep how to process the prophetic word. Most camp grounds and parks do not want people throwing together a pit fire for themselves, so they designate a safe place to contain one, with all the provision needed. They even provide the kindling to get one going! This is facilitating a fire and putting in safe guards so no one gets burned. But even though they know the Holy Spirit manifests as fire, some pastors never set up provision that will keep it going and make it last. Too many skiddish leaders just hope God won’t send a fire starter, so they have that fire extinguisher out and ready the minute some one gets too happy. If they continue in that mentality, one day … One day a fire will break out and they will have to be the mop up crew, after the fact. That is disorder because no one thought ahead. If we can’t manage revival fires on a singular scale how in the world will they be administrated on a city wide scale. Why, some pastors get a cold sweat when they hear some one break out in tongues. The least of all the gifts. Jesus said the Son of Man will return, but He asked a question, “Will He find faith in the earth when He comes? Will the Church be prepared to meet him? Will they be busy stewarding the returns on His great Life investment He poured out for all mankind? Or will they answer, “We were afraid? We not only buried our own talents but every one entrusted to us had to throw theirs in the hole too!” That is not His way. Wisdom is known by her children. If it gets messy it’s not yours to put it out, but it is yours to steward what could become a perpetual flame! He’s coming back to collect dividends on what has been entrusted, will the church of God be empty handed?

Back to the dream, God wants His people to be in a state of readiness. To be as wise as servants and harmless as doves.

Luke 12:39
“But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into.

** Whether this dream is a word of wisdom for all of us to keep in mind the times we are living in, or a specific warning regarding an event to come. It can be taken as a teaching scenario to be vigilant and sober, to watch and pray. To live in a state of spiritual readiness at all times. While I am not a prepper, my strongest advice would be that if our life style (aside from Jesus’s direct command, in Mathew 10:10, to go without purse, script, or sword) hurls us into the street, out of desperation, shortly after an event or crisis, then we cannot possibly be living our lives with intent according to the wisdom of God, specifically as it is written in the book of Proverbs.

Proverbs 6:5-11

Give not sleep to your eyes, nor slumber to your eyelids. Deliver yourself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler. Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provided her meat in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you sleep, O sluggard? when will you arise out of your [lack of awareness] sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall your poverty come on at once, [like a woman in travail], and your want as an armed man.

The Lens Of Prophet Intercessor

Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but found none.

It is absolutely impossible to be a real live prophet of God and not be an intercessor of people, governments, and nations. Not all intercessors occupy that office, but their giftings grow rich because of their selfless obedience as a member of God’s praying family. To them He reveals his will in the earth. The profile of an intercessor has been down graded as a past time for people who have time to pass. It is not an imageaccurate profile. An intercessor is any servant of God who MAKES time to pray. They will be listed in the Annals of Heaven as the unknowns, among the known great men and women of GOD. Because true servants achieve great things through a life devoted to prayer, skilled in spiritual warfare. From this place an EFFECTIVE Five Fold Ministry is called. For even the effective fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much, more so if that righteous man or woman is appointed and anointed by God in ministry, leading many. While some people achieve recognition for their gift of gab, and fast talking charisma, it is the anointing that breaks the yoke. A life of prayer that makes an impact.

The heart of Jehovah is always looking for someone to stand in the gap.

Abraham was a friend of God, someone who would stand in the gap. God knew this when he told Abraham that Sodom and Gomorrah would be destroyed. If you want to be favored, as a friend of God, become an intercessor he reveals those things close to His heart. His son the Lord Jesus Christ, ever intercedes for us. A friend of God cares what God cares about and stands with Him. Like friends do.

Genesis 18:16-33 New King James Version (NKJV)

Abraham Intercedes for Sodom

Then the men rose from there and looked toward Sodom, and Abraham went with them to send them on the way. And the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.” And the Lord said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know.” Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord. And Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” So the Lord said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.” Then Abraham answered and said, “Indeed now, I who am but dust and ashes have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose there were five less than the fifty righteous; would You destroy all of the city for lack of five?” So He said, “If I find there forty-five, I will not destroy it.” And he spoke to Him yet again and said, “Suppose there should be forty found there?” So He said, “I will not do it for the sake of forty.” Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Suppose thirty should be found there?” So He said, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.” And he said, “Indeed now, I have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose twenty should be found there?” So He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty.” Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: Suppose ten should be found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten.” So the Lord went His way as soon as He had finished speaking with Abraham; and Abraham returned to his place.

We see in this passage that intercession for the righteous delivered them from the Judgment reserved for the wicked. Sadly only Lot and his household were spared.

James 2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which said, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed to him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

Romans 8:26

Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

We are the temple of the Holy Ghost and the Body of Christ in the earth! Under a better covenant than Abraham and Moses. A cry for humanity goes up before the throne from the midst of His people night and day. (The Lord God in our midst is mighty.) His intercessors are that voice and heart’s cry for peoples, tongues, and nations. There are those appointed to be intercessors, and those so much after God’s own heart they become intercessors. To them He often gives dreams, visions, and prophetic insight to reveal prayer focus and strategy. Revealing His WORD over any given circumstance, to light the way. This is the quickest route to begin experiencing spiritual giftings. God equips HIS saints with what they need to do His work. He will not hold back in this spiritual work of intercession. Prophetic words, dreams, visions, and discernment of spirits, bring heavy artillery into the battle field.

The Worshipping Intercessor

They that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. An intercessor is most likely the first to enter into abandoned worship, and the last to file out of a corporate visit into the throne room of heaven. The shiny faced one in the crowd is most likely God’s intercessor. The weeping intercessor is often approached by people thinking they need prayer, when in fact they have just been praying for people. The weeping prophet is that prophet of continual intercession. An intercessor can testify of a loss of the sense of time, while laboring in travailing prayer. This is how a few minutes of prayer can run into hours for many veteran intercessors.

A faithful steward of dreams, visions, and prophecy, is an active intercessor. Because they understand them as tools to achieve God’s desired out come. By warning, by revelation, by declaration. While supernatural giftings is common for seasoned intercessors; for curious carnal minded on lookers, a peak in God’s war room may feel like an alien invasion. Not unlike Joshua’s supernatural fight of Jericho, from the Jerichoan’s point of view! Spiritual warfare is strategic, our God is a warrior. The captain of the Host Of Heaven. What a sight it must have been to see this curious army of the children of Israel surrounding a walled city. Spiritual warfare can produce a whole lot of noise, a lot of worship, a lot of shouting; a lot of dance, and marching, and a whole lot of walls coming down! But the scariest phenomenon of them all! A supernatural Hush Of God! I’ve seen a war room of prayer warriors stand under a heavy anointing for as much as an hour in this Holy silence. The waiting in silence is a time of heavenly downloads of supernatural strength. A body of believers perfected in yielding, in one mind and one accord, to the Spirit of Christ like this, is on their way to manifesting God’s supernatural army on earth.

The scripture says, they that wait upon the Lord shall mount up as Eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

Bear ye one another’s burden and so fulfill the law of Christ.

An original born of God burden bearer, bears the burden of the Lord. But remember Jesus said, MY YOKE is not heavy, MY BURDEN is light. The first thing a burden bearer or intercessor needs to learn is to not internalize anguish of soul. While we have a burden for the lost, prayer rolls that burden off, and vaporizes it into a heavenly offering before the throne of God, prayer should lift the burden. This is another reason that Philippians 4:6-7 should be practiced as often as we feel over whelmed, or over burdened. Under that heaviness the enemy can get a foothold, and this is not the will of God. We can (of our own free will) bear up burdens of others in prayer. But no one should pray burdens to be laid on a known intercessor. Let the Father handle that.

Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

I wanted to write about the ministry of intercession in the light of visions, dreams, and prophecy- so people can understand more about God’s gifting in intercessory prayer. The gift we are equipped with and the office we occupy are the lens we approach intercessory prayer with. That is how several people coming together and praying for one focus point will see or sense different facets of prayer need. This is why we can’t hurry through points of prayer, corporately, before the offices and giftings among us are released from their burden. Whether this is corporate ministry or intercession. It is wise to have representatives from each office to lay out their petition for the matter. Letting the saints pray over it in the Spirit and with their understanding also. This way the Fivefold ministry is activated during intercession,  pulling down strongholds and making away for the full council of God to come in any given matter. When God chose Abraham to intercede over Sodom, He chose one who would become a Father of Nations. His intercession wasn’t just for Lot’s survival, it wasn’t just for his relatives, but all righteous peoples with in that city. Abraham and Sarah were known for their hospitality, they loved people. This is another reason God chose Abraham to tell of His plans to destroy these two wicked cities. He knew Abraham would be moved for the humanity with in them. Any Apostle or Prophet that thinks INTERCESSORY pray is for little old ladies and not for them, hasn’t understood Abraham’s friendship with God, and is not of any rank according to the super prophet Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 27:18 If they are prophets, and if the word of the LORD is with them, then let them intercede with the LORD of hosts.

Isaiah 62:6-7
I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who will never hold their peace day or night; you who [are His servants and by your prayers] put the Lord in remembrance [of His promises], keep not silence …

Ephesians 6:18
Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).

1 Timothy 2:1
First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men.

In 1992 I had the privilege of seeing a move of God at its point of ignition. What I observed has always stayed with me. For many years we were praying for a break through in a region of the North West. An aging evangelist came to our town. Well known for sparking revivals. I saw Him work, and God showed me a key in action. This man understood intercession, and he understood its power. His first few meetings were dedicated to teaching Holy Spirit filled INTERCESSORY prayer, and he revived that prayer ministry, during his meetings. He set up prayer among the people, attending  the revival meetings, and called upon the whole congregation to lift their voice to God after the first and second night. He also refused to settle for timid prayers. He wasn’t happy until prayer roared out of that sanctuary on behalf of the city, people slumped at the altar wailing for souls. He didn’t shut it down like so many do. Prayer went into the night, even as intercessors disbanded, and regrouped in their homes. God had this man revive prayer first. And I mean real prayer. *Travailing prayer. The evangelist extended his meetings. 800 hundred souls were saved in this mid size city. And prayer was revived. Long story short by 1996 this town was listed in the top ten best cities to live in. And many years after, well into the new millennium. A slumping economy was now booming. 100,000 people who left in the 1980’s looking for work and better lives, had either come back or were replaced by others looking for work, and a better life, in a growing economy.  The metropolitan area tripled in size after 10 years. Several struggling Spirit filled churches began to grow in leaps and bounds. Eagles, and I mean prophetic ones, began to land in these spirit filled churches immediately after this evangelistic over throw. Restoring the office of the Apostles and Prophets to facilitate the growth to come. One of those Apostles began a prayer house ministry in Washington DC.,  The key to everything is prayer. The key to great accomplishments in the kingdom of God is to be that one who will stand in the gap. Being a friend of God.

Ezekiel 22:30 I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it …

*As giving birth. The travails of laboring with child.
