1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy race, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Inordinate affection is an over the top passion, about anything other than our love for the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. An inordinate affection causes us to act disorderly and leads to sin. The greek word associated with it is pathos, meaning mental- you find it in the word: pathological, or psychopathic. We can get mental about a lot of things in this world these days and loose the mind of Christ in it! In fact, with the help of mainstream media and its dangerous slant on truth, many are developing opinions and a world view, in these end times, that will feed into what is described in the bible as the great deception. Satan, the bible says, is like a roaring lion pacing back and forth, seeking for an opportunity to devour. He is looking for the hamstring knock out, that will take us down. For example:
There are Christians that have kept a level head so far, maintaining a balanced view on current social headlines, or issues, until it began to bleed into the NFL.
Suddenly, we have people that (have been thought to be rational and balanced, in their views) going over the top, with inordinate or pathos’ responses because now it has touched on something that they are truly passionate about! The enemy will find our boiling point that will throw us into the ring, letting the god of this world, and the prince of the power of the air, fuel anger to the point we become inflamed; rather than, allowing the Spirit of God to temper our passions.
Nothing, should warrant division among the family of God in these days of ethnic uprisings, prophesied by Christ. We are one holy race. That is it. In all things there is the mind of Christ to be had! If we cleave to our heritages forgetting that God said our heritage is of HIM, then that will breed contention, in times of tension, among ethnic uprising. I suspect that there will be those that have such strong ties, culturally, they will not embrace their heritage that is of the Father, and they will forsake it. Had they ever looked into their identity in Christ, they would have understood what a great inheritance we have in Him. Heirs they are, who believe in their heart that God rose Jesus from the dead, confessing with their mouth He is Lord! Romans 10:9-10
In a world such as ours we should know one thing more than anything else. That is Christ and Him crucified. Seeking discernment of spirits, to differentiate between what all should be known, and what the prince of the power of the air wants us to believe.
Little Children guard your hearts and minds, keep yourself from idols, as John would say. Remembering, we all shall need adjusting, and do even now, like Peter when Jesus said, “You don’t know what spirit ye are of.” For everyone will be tempted to activism when it gets hard, this will be difficult. In all things we should remember that we are Ambassadors of Jesus Christ. So, all we should do and say, is what HE would do and say, to those who dwell outside of HIS Kingdom.
Many, are well acquainted with Jesus but have rejected him, and HIS servants, time and time again; and would have the mind of Christ now, in these days of crisis in America, if they would have listened to Him a long time ago. Still, we compel all … to come. We the (true church) will have the answers. We are citizens of the Kingdom of God. Hopefully, there will be media out reach, and I know many are set up for this, who can be a relevant voice of reason. Rightly dividing the word of truth.
The Lord, spoke to me about a leavening that would be introduced to the whole lump, if we didn’t make sure to: “Guard your hearts and minds in the days and weeks to come.” I heard the Lord say, “You knew it would be just a matter of time?” I answered, “Yes Lord.” Knowing to warn all that love HIM, to know that our affections, our passions; who or what we love, will be used by the enemy to pull any one of us into an agenda, that is earth bound, not heaven sent. In these amazing times the Lord will use His anointed to do great and mighty exploits. Many in the Spirit poised to be a clear and present force with in these days of shakings to come. To be a steady voice in the wilderness, and a stabilizer in the midst of chaotic times. Nevertheless, new works are always at the risk of take over, when they are easiest to infiltrate. That is why we have a carnage of slaughtered unborn, and sexualy abused children, that are targeted in this ruthless world we live in. Satan knows new beginnings don’t have a firm identity to resist splitting its purpose, or aborting it altogether. It will begin with what we think is right and true, because a passion has flared up on the inside of us! Just like pro abortion activists! But the question has to be asked, where did it come from, how was it fueled? Will we end up with more dead works in the world? Another voice of compromise, a mixture in this world? Or, will what God has begun among his Church, His ekklesia, become the representation of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth? An Embassy representing Yeshuah, and His Kingdom ways. In this they will know us by OUR love.
Leavening is a fermentation that begins to spread in the dough, it lies dormant until all the right conditions come together and then it spreads very quickly.
If one were to change their mind about adding yeast, it can only be done if the fermentation is localized and then cut out, after its been introduced. Leavening is like sin. SIN means to fall short. A thing can seem right until it is debated, or another side is told. A man thinks to himself his way is right, but the end of that way is death. I pray that in every way, we as Christians seek the full counsel of God, in all things. Because perilous times are coming. Why should we take a rabid dog by the ears in an argument not our own, in a time when evil is all around us? We are in this world not of it, and careful prayer for supernatural wisdom is required to navigate through all things called a controversy, victoriously. In Mathew 24 Jesus said, there will be wars and rumors of war, nation will rise against nation .. the word in greek for nation is ETHOS’ from it the word ethnic is derived. Believe me brothers and sisters, you will want both feet in the Kingdom of God in these days of wars, and rumors of wars, nations rising up against nations! Not leaving one foot, stubbornly, stirring in those sin born controversies where there is no clear path to embrace. For sin lies in the heart of men. The heart is exceedingly wicked. Cleave to God and His son the Lord Jesus, He will give you a VOICE that will be heard, in these ethnic risings, and rumors of war! You are of one faith and baptism, you are of a Holy Priesthood one nation. Why do the heathen rage and the peoples imagine a vain thing? As we read on in Mathew chapter 24 the scripture says, “and this gospel shall be preached …” see that? (And) (while) (as) these things are going on – This gospel shall be preached!
We cannot be doing both! It is clearly one way or the other. Either you and I are part of the uprising, the wars, and rumors of wars, or we are preaching this gospel Of the Lord Jesus Christ! Remember you are in Christ, dead to the old man! The old man is a reveller! The message of the cross, and true repentance of sin is the answer to mankind’s ills.
Psalms 2:8 Ask me and I will make the Nations [Etho’-s] your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
Put on the New Self. If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For you are DEAD, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.
Mortify therefore your members which are on the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience: In the which you also walked some time, when you lived in them. But now you also put off all these; ANGER, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is RENEWED in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is NEITHER Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor un circumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
Put on therefore, AS THE ELECT of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do you. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also you are called in one body; and be you thankful. Let the WORD of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and ADMONISHING one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
… they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, you are God, which have made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that is in them …Acts 4:24
I want to talk about the power of corporate moves of God, brought into smaller meetings at home. When we meet together in Christ we might as well begin to think of ourselves as the member of an orchestra or choir! Because this is what the Church is, an instrument in God’s orchestra! After all we are called the Body of Christ, and every part has his or her place.
Lifting Up One Voice
While in buildings, a larger group usually has a platform for appointees to lead out, and bring congregants into unified prayer or worship; in smaller groups it doesn’t necessarily have to work that way, because they are often less structured. We need to remember the first Christian family met under circumstances more similar to a home meeting, rather than buildings and platforms; with microphones, and speakers. Jesus said that when ever two or three are gathered in His name, there HE is in our midst. This is going to be different than our personal time with Him, that is usually inwardly focused. Christ is in us, and we are in Him. In a group He draws us outward to the center of the gathering, where He is. He is the head of the Church, and we (through Him) become joined in a corporate move of HIS Spirit.
When we continue to gather in this way Jesus nits our hearts together, and we become unified in spirit, as the group evolves.
Coming together in one mind and accord is quickly accomplished by praying, and worshiping together, as long as the prayer, praise, and worship, achieves corporate status. What the bible calls “coming together in one mind and in one accord.” As strange as it seems, individuals in a group gathering can be so timid and internal in their prayers and worship, that the group never achieves a true unity of spirit. In fact fractions are more likely to exist in a corporate setting that does nothing to spiritually unify the people to function as a body. Jesus is unable to show His power among them, they must yield to the corporate anointing, and enter in.
A good way to enter in is by simply yielding to an anointed vocal lead that has lifted their voice up in prayer, or praise, to draw the group into unity. In a smaller setting the group can just begin to move in open laudation, until a lead voice is made distinct while praises to God go upward. The lead laudation is an anointed voice of worship, prayer, or praise, that the group finds easy to follow. Your spirit will feel the power of agreement.
What is then good to do is to blend into that laudation. As other voices blend, the lead out dissolves into a corporate voice, this group has achieved a “one in mind and one in accord” voice of praise, worship, and prayer. The lord uses whom ever HE wills, and with that we begin to blend our voice in worship, with the most anointed laudation going forth among the saints, (whom ever the Spirit has moved upon) and this is going upward, and not inward, but is of throne room power! Following inspired leads in the Spirit is called “being carried in” to anointed worship. Worship leaders do that for congregations all the time, if they have the anointing to do so.
I’ve seen groups become so unified that no lead voices are needed, they just enter into the high praises of God all at once! Jumping into the deep side of the river of God all at the same time!
It is the Holy Spirit that leads the saints to a higher ground of worship, praise, power, and ministry. Remember we want that because it is the anointing that breaks the yoke! An Holy Spirit inspired group breaks powerful resistances! Sometimes, in spirit filled meetings, there is an appointed person that has that spearhead anointing and they may do that for a season. But, it can change, and should be interchangeable as new lead voices enter in. As the scripture says when something is revealed to another they should then have their turn, and the word says let the first prophet then yield. 1 Corinth 29:29-30
So when a new voice of leading matches the existing voice in anointing, the new voice should be given place, that will lead the group up and onward toward unified prayer, worship, and praise! This is good practice in prophecy, ministry, sharing the word, and spiritual songs. Sometimes the person who leads out hears a laudation of praise in a less bold voice that they blend with, and they amplify it up corporately and that starts the one mind and one accord laudations, because they carried an anointing that leaped in their spirit when it was heard. A wise worship leader will amplify from their platform what is hitting the masses, in waves of glory, to pull it in and send it back out, that the glory reaches those at the far ends of the meeting place. In a smaller groups, the group just carries it on from glory to glory.
Give The Lord His Due
We Got to give God HIS first before we move in on a pre determined event or need. Sometimes, our Spirit filled worship brings so much power the needs are washed away, and freedom falls down like a blanket over everyone. The first Spirit filled meeting moved in this way, while all were praying in one accord, the power of God came down and they were all filled! When we pray, and a voice goes forth with power, and it is outward and not inward, and it leads and lifts the gathered believers up into corporate anointed prayer- then that unified prayer will carry against oppositions, against God’s people, on a corporate level, or even city wide.
It brings in the move of the Spirit! As one makes five thousand to run, two or more makes tens of thousands! This is the power of unified prayer against the enemy! In the event that the Spirit leads us into unified prayer, it is good to remember, our prayer closet prayers are wonderful, but corporate prayer ministry is a little different.
When we bury our face, or walk to a corner, and start praying to ourselves, or turn on our own music, and plug it into our ears, we are disbanding from the group.
We should do these kind of prayers before meetings, only. To get our heads straight for the group. It’s ok to have early time in a corporate setting to give people time alone with God, but when it’s time to come together, it is time to walk out of our prayer closet and join the group. When the saints of God continue in corporate ministry, the mind of Christ will come forth. Christ is working by His Spirit, collectively in the midst of the saints, that are gathered. Together, our hearts are synchronized by the Spirit of the Lord to carry the burden of the Lord.
When we lead in prayer out loud we must not go to prayer changing from subject to subject, as if we are working through a list. We have to make sure we do not shift the focus, before others are able to audibly agree or enhance the prayer with their own spoken power of agreement. Saints that run through a list of prayers, leading in corporate prayer, are forgetting that they are not in their prayer closet, and that another instrument of God may harmonize on the matter, in a way God may reveal them to do so. That will add power towards the answer.
Also, when in corporate prayer our prayer focuses should be corporate when praying for individuals in the community. Instead of praying for that one in jail, pray for all those that are in jail and prison in the community. Or that one battling cancer, come against the spirit of cancer on all the saints of God you know. Trouble with a child, lift up all sons and daughters in rebellion, because in that group there is power to do it! Remembering to give room, and give place, to one another. So that not one stone is left un turned. For another vessel in the group may have a revelation to share on that burden of prayer; bringing words of knowledge, and wisdom, in the matter, that would move it into victory.
When corporate anointing is freely expressing itself in unity, an event of power and Holy distribution of healing and deliverances will ensue.
Like what happened on the day of Pentecost, a powerful move of God spilled out into the city through a Spirit filled, unified group, unashamedly worshipping God!
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with ONE ACCORD in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house. Act2:1”
This is how we can be sure to be led by the SPIRIT and not by our human spirit or emotions. When we allow group ministry to enter the house on a corporate level, at times healing and deliverances take place while we are busy unified in the Spirit, in worship and prayer. It is later after we have ushered in the SPIRIT like one mighty river (with our individual streams of worship, and prayer joining in) that there will be an abundance of anointing to do personal ministry over those who have already been under a deluge of power, in unified praise and worship.
This is that which loosens and pre-soaks hard roots so that personal ministry and deliverance will be most effective. Over the years I have had many prayer meetings, and home meetings, and have taught on corporate prayer. It is very sad to attend a prayer meeting at a church or an event that has 50 to a hundred people walking around, by themselves, standing in a corner, bent down at an alter, and milling around in the foyer, and you can hear a pin drop, with no unified voices lifted up! This is not corporate prayer. It is individual prayer in a corporate setting, and more times than not the Spirit of God is quenched, and the power that could have been released from that meeting, is for ever lost.
When groups first begin to come together. It is important that ministry doesn’t get locked into an introverted flow, time and time again.
It’s important to minister to one another, and is in many ways the whole point; but, when we give the Father the first portion of anything- the latter portion will be multiplied, in healings, deliverances; and in word, and prophecy! As we seen with Peter, who preached to the people when 3,000 were saved! He did this after a corporately anointed meeting!
Getting Started With A Reserved Group
If you have a church or group and it is difficult to bring the group together in one mind and accord, than making a gesture to come in a circle to hold hands is a good start. That is a unity excersize, as is singing songs, and letting people each share, breaks the ice. But you may have to embarrass your flesh to lead them into out loud laudation yourself. Go ahead there is usually one just hoping you would so they can join you in the bunch! Lead them into that abandoned worship, where each one forgets about him or herself self, and lifts their voice entering into the flow of the Spirit- this is called the high praises of God, and is what creates extraordinary moves of the Spirit.
Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord God almighty! Who was, is and is the to come!
TOMMY HICKS’ END-TIMES VISION.
The Body Of Christ Vision
Revivalist: Tommy Hicks July 25th, 1961
My message begins July 25, about 2:30 in the morning at Winnipeg, Canada.
I had hardly fallen asleep when the vision and the reve
lation that God gave me came before me. The vision came three times, exactly in detail, the morning of July 25, 1961. I was so stirred and so moved by the revelation that this has changed my complete outlook upon the body of Christ, and upon the end time ministries. The greatest thing that the church of Jesus Christ has ever been given lies straight ahead. It is so hard to help men and women to realize and understand the thing that God is trying to give his people in the end times. I received a letter several weeks ago from one of our native evangelists down in Africa, down in Nairobi. This man and his wife were on their way to Tanganyika. They could neither read nor could they write, but we had been supporting them for over two years. As they entered into the territory of Tanganyika, they came across a small village. The entire village was evacuating because of a plague that had hit the village. He came across natives that were weeping, and he asked them what was wrong. They told him of their mother and father who had suddenly died, and they had been dead for three days. They had to leave. They were afraid to go in; they were leaving them in the cottage. He turned and asked them where they were. They pointed to the hut and he asked them to go with him, but they refused. They were afraid to go. The native and his wife went to this little cottage and entered in where the man and woman had been dead for three days. He simply stretched forth his hand in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and spoke the man’s name and the woman’s name and said, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to come back to your bodies.” Instantaneously these two heathen people who had never known Jesus Christ as their Savior sat up and immediately began to praise God. The spirit and the power of God came into the life of those people. To us that may seem strange and a phenomenon, but that is the beginning of these end-time ministries. God is going to take the do-nothings, the nobodies, the unheard-of, the no-accounts. He is going to take every man and every woman and he is going to give to them this outpouring of the Spirit of God.
In the book of Acts we read that “In the last days,” God said, “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.”
I wonder if we realize what he meant when God said, “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.” I do not think I fully realized nor could I understand the fullness of it, and then I read from the book of Joel: “Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain -” (Joel 2:23). It is not only going to be the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, but he is going to give to his people in these last days a double portion of the power of God! As the vision appeared to me after I was asleep, I suddenly found myself in a great high distance. Where I was, I do not know. But I was looking down upon the earth. Suddenly the whole earth came into my view. Every nation, every kindred, every tongue came before my sight from the east and the west, the north and the south. I recognized every country and many cities that I had been in, and I was almost in fear and trembling as I beheld the great sight before me: and at that moment when the world came into view, it began to lightning and thunder. As the lightning flashed over the face of the earth, my eyes went downward and I was facing the north. Suddenly I beheld what looked like a great giant, and as I stared and looked at it, I was almost bewildered by the sight. It was so gigantic and so great. His feet seemed to reach to the north pole and his head to the south. Its arms were stretched from sea to sea. I could not even begin to understand whether this be a mountain or this be a giant, but as I watched, I suddenly beheld a great giant. I could see his head was struggling for life. He wanted to live, but his body was covered with debris from head to foot, and at times this great giant would move his body and act as though it would even raise up at times. And when it did, thousands of little creatures seemed to run away. Hideous creatures would run away from this giant, and when he would become calm, they would come back. All of a sudden this great giant lifted his hand towards heaven, and then it lifted its other hand, and when it did these creatures by the thousands seemed to flee away from this giant and go into the darkness of the night. Slowly this great giant began to rise and as he did, his head and hands went into the clouds. As he rose to his feet he seemed to have cleansed himself from the debris and filth that was upon him, and he began to raise his hands into the heavens as though praising the Lord, and as he raised his hands, they went even unto the clouds. Suddenly, every cloud became silver, the most beautiful silver I have ever known.
As I watched this phenomenon it was so great I could not even begin to understand what it all meant. I was so stirred as I watched it, and I cried unto the Lord and I said, “Oh Lord, what is the meaning of this.” and I felt as if I was actually in the Spirit and I could feel the presence of the Lord even as I was asleep. And from those clouds suddenly there came great drops of liquid light raining down upon this mighty giant, and slowly, slowly, this giant began to melt, began to sink itself in the very earth itself, and as he melted, his whole form seemed to have melted upon the face of the earth, and this great rain began to come down. Liquid drops of light began to flood the very earth itself and as I watched this giant that seemed to melt, suddenly it became millions of people over the face of the earth. As I beheld the sight before me, people stood up all over the world! They were lifting their hands and they were praising the Lord. At that very moment there came a great thunder that seemed to roar from the heavens. I turned my eyes toward the heavens and suddenly I saw a figure in white, in glistening white – the most glorious thing that I have ever seen in my entire life. I did not see the face, but somehow I knew it was the Lord Jesus Christ, and he stretched forth his hand, and as he did, he would stretch it forth to one, and to another, and to another. And as he stretched forth his hand upon the nations and the people of the world – men and women – as he pointed toward them, this liquid light seemed to flow from his hands into them, and a mighty anointing of God came upon them, and those people began to go forth in the name of the Lord. I do not know how long I watched it.
It seemed it went into days and weeks and months. And I beheld this Christ as he continued to stretch forth his hand; but there was a tragedy. There were many people as he stretched forth his hand that refused the anointing of God and the call of God. I saw men and women that I knew. People that I felt would certainly receive the call of God. But as he stretched forth his hand toward this one and toward that one, they simply bowed their head and began to back away. And each of those that seemed to bow down and back away, seemed to go into darkness. Blackness seemed to swallow them everywhere. I was bewildered as I watched it, but these people that he had anointed, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, in Africa, England, Russia, China, America, all over the world, the anointing of God was upon these people as they went forward in the name of the Lord. I saw these men and women as they went forth. They were ditch diggers, they were washerwomen, they were rich men, they were poor men. I saw people who were bound with paralysis and sickness and blindness and deafness. As the Lord stretched forth to give them this anointing, they became well, they became healed, and they went forth! And this is the miracle of it – this is the glorious miracle of it – those people would stretch forth their hands exactly as the Lord did, and it seemed as if there was this same liquid fire in their hands. As they stretched forth their hands they said, “According to my word, be thou made whole.” As these people continued in this mighty end-time ministry, I did not fully realize what it was, and I looked to the Lord and said, “What is the meaning of this?” And he said, “This is that which I will do in the last days. I will restore all that the cankerworm, the palmerworm, the caterpiller – I will restore all. that they have destroyed. This, my people, in the end times will go forth.
As a mighty army shall they sweep over the face of the
earth.” As I was at this great height, I could behold the whole world. I watched these people as they were going to and fro over the face of the earth. Suddenly there was a man in Africa and in a moment he was transported by the Spirit of God, and perhaps he was in Russia, or China or America or some other place, and vice versa. All over the world these people went, and they came through fire, and through pestilence, and through famine. Neither fire nor persecution, nothing seemed to stop them. Angry mobs came to them with swords and with guns. And like Jesus, they passed through the multitudes and they could not find them, but they went forth in the name of the Lord, and everywhere they stretched forth their hands, the sick were healed, the blind eyes were opened. There was not a long prayer, and after I had reviewed the vision many times in my mind, and I thought about it many times, I realised that I never saw a church, and I never saw or heard a denomination, but these people were going in the name of the Lord of Hosts. Hallelujah!
As they marched forth in everything they did as the ministry of Christ in the endtimes.
… these people were ministering to the multitudes over the face of the earth. Tens of thousands, even millions seemed to come to the Lord Jesus Christ as these people stood forth and gave the message of the kingdom, of the coming kingdom, in this last hour. It was so glorious, but it seems as though there were those that rebelled, and they would become angry and they tried to attack those workers that were giving the message. God is going to give the world a demonstration in this last hour as the world has never known. These men and women are of all walks of life, degrees will mean nothing. I saw these workers as they were going over the face of the earth. When one would stumble and fall, another would come and pick him up. There were no “big I” and “little you,” but every mountain was brought low and every valley was exalted, and they seemed to have one thing in common – there was a divine love, a divine love that seemed to flow forth from these people as they worked together, and as they lived together. It was the most glorious sight that I have ever known. Jesus Christ was the theme of their life. They continued and it seemed the days went by as I stood and beheld this sight. I could only cry, and sometimes I laughed. It was so wonderful as these people went throughout the face of the whole earth, bringing forth in this last end time.
As I watched from the very heaven itself, there were times when great deluges of this liquid light seemed to fall upon great congregations, and that congregation would lift up their hands and seemingly praise God for hours and even days as the Spirit of God came upon them. God said, “I will pour my Spirit upon all flesh,” and that is exactly this thing. And to every man and every woman that received this power, and the anointing of God, the miracles of God, there was no ending to it.
We have talked about miracles. We have talked about signs and wonders,
but I could not help but weep as I read again this morning, at 4 o’clock this morning the letter from our native workers. This is only the evidence of the beginning for one man, a “do-nothing, an unheard-of,” who would go and stretch forth his hand and say, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to flow into your body.” I dropped to my knees and began to pray again, and I said, “Lord, I know that this time is coming soon!” And then again, as these people were going about the face of the earth, a great persecution seemed to come from every angle. Suddenly there was another great clap of thunder, that seemed to resound around the world, and I heard again the voice, the voice that seemed to speak, “Now this is my people. This is my beloved bride.” And when the voice spoke, I looked upon the earth and I could see the lakes and the mountains. The graves were opened and people from all over the world, the saints of all ages, seemed to be rising. And as they rose from the grave, suddenly all these people came from every direction. From the east and the west, from the north and the south, and they seemed to be forming again this gigantic body. As the dead in Christ seemed to be rising first, I could hardly comprehend it. It was so marvellous. It was so far beyond anything I could ever dream or think of. But as this body suddenly began to form, and take shape again, it took shape again in the form of this mighty giant, but this time it was different. It was arrayed in the most beautiful gorgeous white. Its garments were without spot or wrinkle as its body began to form, and the people of all ages seemed to be gathered into this body, and slowly, slowly, as it began to form up into the very heavens, suddenly from the heavens above, the Lord Jesus came, and became the head, and I heard another clap of thunder that said, “This is my beloved bride for whom I have waited. She will come forth even tried by fire. This is she that I have loved from the beginning of time.”
As I watched, my eyes suddenly turned to the far north,
and I saw seemingly destruction: men and women in anguish and crying out, and buildings in destruction. Then I heard again, the fourth voice that said, “Now is My wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth.” From the ends of the whole world, the wrath of God seemed to be poured out and it seemed that there were great vials of God’s wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth. I can remember it as though it happened a moment ago. I shook and trembled as I beheld the awful sight of seeing the cities, and whole nations going down into destruction. I could hear the weeping and wailing. I could hear people crying. They seemed to cry as they went into caves, but the caves in the mountains opened up. They leaped into water, but the water would not drown them. There was nothing that could destroy them. They were wanting to take their lives, but they could not. Then again I turned my eyes to this glorious sight, this body arrayed in beautiful white, shining garments. Slowly, slowly, it began to lift from the earth, and as it did, I awoke. What a sight I had beheld! I had seen the end-time ministries – the last hour. Again on July 27, at 2:30 in the morning, the same revelation, the same vision came again exactly as it did before. My life has been changed as I realised that we are living in that end time, for all over the world God is anointing men and women with this ministry. It will not be doctrine. It will not be a churchianity. It is going to be Jesus Christ. They will give forth the word of the Lord, and are going to say, “I heard it so many times in the vision and according to my word it shall be done.”
Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds his people.
A prophetic dream.
Lately, a lot has been said about Zionism and Zionists. I rejoice with the Jews, being returned to their homeland! Because God said that was what He was going to do in the latter years, He would return them to their land! We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. However my support stops at the rebuilding of the temple. Jesus tore that temple down and raised it up after three days. Clearly He spoke of HIS body. I’m not touching that, I’m not sending in my fifty dollars to clone back a red heifer. Jesus is the true temple. Do Christians really need to be reminded that the sacrificial lamb was sacrificed in the person of Jesus Christ, the son of God? Jesus, was once and for all sacrificed for the remission of sins, and there is no other provision, but what Jesus did for all man kind upon the cross, I would never support, or want to support, an institution that Christ himself has done away with! Reinstating the daily sacrifice, would be an obomination. If I am wrong then I am wrong; however, if I am right and Christians are helping to rebuild that temple to reinstate the daily sacrifice, they are Apostate. Paul called this category of activity, a bewitchment from the truth. The Jews do not have a separate work to be performed for them. The first Christians were Jews. They must receive Christ, as us all. Make sure you’re not perpetuating a damnable offense, by helping to raise an altar Christ himself has done away with. Nothing, can trump the Lord’s sacrifice. EVER.
That being said, scripture brings us back to the pure stream of God’s word! In regard to ZION!
I had a dream that cleared it all up for me. Maybe my dream will do it for you too.
There was a young Christian man. He seemed weathered and in some turmoil, his companion was dressed in black, she was about to have a baby. They were in an unholy union, a Christian bound to the Law. Married to it! He kept saying “When Zion comes it will be better, I’m looking for Zion.” This went on for awhile, he was defeated and broke, his clothes were ragged, and dirty. This Christian was full of sin awareness. He confessed Christ but the blood of Jesus needed more of his help, in his mind. He was married to the law. He was always coming up short. Him and the sin awareness he was married to were going to have a baby, his offspring would be called the Final Church of the Dead Born. Their destiny (man, woman, and offspring) was a place called much tribulation. My SPIRIT Had enough, listening to him mourn for Zion. In the dream I abruptly turned to him and said, Look here “I Am ZION!” The words rolled off my tongue with righteous indignation! Justice seemed to accent the words when I said, “I !!Am!! ZION!!!” A little surprised at myself, I had to stop and think about it, but knew it was true!
I want to tell you that before this dream I never really thought about Zion one way or another. Not in any special revelatory way. Though not surprised by the statement, I Am Zion. It fits in the scheme of things pretty well, right now.
I wanted him to know Christ as I did, and himself as the blood bought that we are. Letting those words drop deep into his soul, knowing how I would have to explain it to him later. He just kept looking at me in shock, while we were trying to get him to face this birth (the ramifications) of this un holy union HE was responsible for. The birth of his offspring (come from doubt and unbelief) would bring much tribulation. I believe that this dream reveals what mixing the law with grace looks like. Jesus came to redeem us from the curse of the law. If we continue sharing the altar of Christ’s sacrifice, with our own kind of righteousness, and refuse to seek understanding to know how great a salvation HE attained for us, then this mixture will bring forth a new and terrible religion of compromise, it will secure millions of souls into the grip of the last horse and rider of the apocalypse. Death followed by hell. Whole cities, and armies, will be swallowed up into the yawning gasp of the devil’ s hell. Along the lawless will be those who still believe their own kind of righteousness will award them heaven. They don’t know who they are. Zion is a distant and lofty dream. In that they have neglected a great salvation, disqualified from obtaining the full benefits of Christ’s work on the cross. The healing, and deliverance, the power of God, the Ambassadorship, and the authority.
Sweet praying CHURCH who makes herself ready, you’re the redeemed of the Lord! We are ZION we have come, already. I believe in a literal return of the Lord Jesus Christ- I believe His head quarters will be in Jerusalem, what ever that will look like, what ever that will be. We have earthly bodies, and heavenly bodies, God is redeeming the earthly body last. We still live in the body of this death; but, as Job 19:26 said “my dead body eaten of worms, will one day rise, and I will see God in my flesh! The first fruits of the dead, even Christ himself said, “I AM HE who liveth and was dead, now behold I am alive forever more! Saying, I am He who WAS, IS and IS to come …!” HE is in us, dwelling in the city of a heavenly Zion, where the Lamb is the light in us, in these earthen vessels! The Spirit of God wrote the CHURCH a love letter in Isaiah 62, while comforting His people He spoke of the Church, prophetically, so we can rise up and know we will manifest HIM in the earth for we (the Church) is that enduring CITY, individually and collectively where the LAMB IS THE LIGHT! As there will be a city with HIM in it, when HE comes! I’m not one of those who looks at the spiritual only, because we live in a material world. Jesus came in the flesh, He is here in us, and He will soon return, and we shall be changed, when He does. In fact the word says:
… beloved believe not every spirit, for every spirit that believes not that Jesus is come in the flesh is not of God 1 John 4:2-3
We are spiritual Israel the people of HIS promise grafted in! He described us in Isaiah 60, and our commissioning in Isaiah 61!!! With out revelation of that (of who God says we are) that “the CHURCH (spiritual Israel) is ZION NOW, of Isaiah 62- even the by-product, virgin posterity, maiden daughter, of the original … daughters of Zion.
Those who came from us who do not continue in the faith, but who do co-mingle in this unholy union with death, (my people perish for lack of knowledge) produce dead religious works. This is death followed by hell in its purest form. There is nothing more dead than those who refuse to continue in the truth, in what God has done through Jesus Christ! And who we are in HIM! The physical City of David is an archeological wonder, of rock and dirt. The promise of God was that David would never lack an heir sitting on the Throne Of David. When we become a Christian, Christ the root of Jesse, lion of Judah, and Judge of Israel began to reign from the throne of our hearts. Christ in us the Hope and Glory. We are the fortress of David,
When we realize we are Zion in Isaiah 62 (the Lord said, “I’ll not rest until she receives the torch of her salvation!” then we will rejoice in understanding that Isaiah 60 is us now too, saying: arise and shine For your light has come! … Christ in us the hope and glory! That Isaiah 61 is our commissioning, (the Spirit of the Lord is upon me …) the works he did shall we do also. Study these three, put your hand on your heart and say, the Lord my God dwells in Zion!
Joel 3:17 I Am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion.
Isaiah 60:14 And they shall call you The City of the Lord,
Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
Psalm 132:13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling!
I want to say this, it doesn’t matter who will, or who won’t rise up and come along; for many, their mind sets, and their traditions, will get in the way! They will continue to serve a defeated Christ under the ordinances of men! Never moving beyond the more elementary provisions of the law. Forever preaching on sin, because they still stumble on that stumbling block themselves. Nothing will make you clean but trusting in the power of the blood of Jesus. If we are going to camp out in one place, let us camp beside this cleansing stream.
1 Peter 2:7-9 But to those who do not believe the stone the builders rejected has become the corner stone, “A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.” Because they do not obey His word .. But You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation …
But know this, the REMNANT has always been a straggling few, the marginalized, the disenfranchised; even as David’s band of brothers, whom knew God’s chosen, that were mighty warriors who won battles for the benefit of the reign of David. Great accomplishments for the kingdom of God will be won by those who believe in the power of Jesus Name! God reserves the most awesome battles for the smallest of armies. And has his 300 (type) in reserve; even HIS weaker vessels shall arise in this hour!
To Display His Power!
In a time when righteous judgment is needed in the land- God is calling, “Deborah, arise and go down. Bring this word to the commander of hosts …”
God used Deborah to take down the iron chariot army, that intimidated Israel, holding hostage (lands of promise) too long. These biblical and prophetic types are now IN CHRIST, and IN Christ Jesus there is no race or gender that is disqualified. Male or female Greek or Jew …. Those who rise up and join the faithful GET TO SHARE in Christ’s reward. I’m not waiting for NO ONE TO CATCH UP with me. That is the devil’s lie! Even Deborah’s Barak said, “If you go I will go.” And Barack was mentioned in the FAITH HALL OF FAME, listed as one who subdued kingdoms with the rest of God’s flawed, but faith filled valiant! He didn’t care about ego! The etymology of Deborah means BEE which is spoken as Devorah. It is the feminine form of davar, litterally meaning: Word! You see BARAK took the WORD OF THE LORD into battle with Him! So this nonsense regarding Barak being a coward is a spot and wrinkle in modern Christian teaching, needing ironed out once and for all! Barak was ORDAINED TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD with HIM TO BAttlE, and he did so prophetically when Deborah went with him! The ancient letter of Hebrews lists him in the Faith HALL of FAME, not shame! Let me tell you God gives that kind of warrior (who insists on the WORD with HIM in every battle) the blessing of thorough and accurate resolve. This kind – even this one of biblical acclaim Captain BARAK, isn’t just any HIGH level commander, He is a true defender of the faith that went out against that dreaded army of iron. Others avoided this same people before him. Certainly the early CHURCH regarded Barak well.
To demote such a man as so many have in their sermons and commentary, who have labeled him a coward for taking a woman to battle with him, lack in understanding, and have not “searched the matter out.” Erroneously, using this as a lesson that weak men need a Deborah. When actually God was revealing his might against a powerfully strong army. It was a house wife named Jael that took down its commander!
In the song of Deborah and Barak a GENERAL OF GOD’S ARMY, (who didn’t get there by weakness by the way) sang a song that GAVE all honor and glory to The Father, it wasn’t in him to get the glory, he just wanted the VICTORY, a woman getting praise for her bravery outshined Barak’s exploits, not because He was less of a man- but because the woman who killed the captain of the opposing army, Sisera, was A WOMAN in her home serving milk! It wasn’t even Deborah who was the hero in all of this but Jael! She utterly defeated the CAPTAIN of the army of of 900 iron CHARIOTS! That was the point!! Once again to remind the Children of Israel, The Lord thy God In the midst of thee is mighty! The week shall be strong, and it will go well with those that know how to give honor to the weaker vessel, for it is through them, He reveals HIS power. God has proven over and over again the battle is not to the swift or to the strong, but the battle belongs to the Lord! When they ask you who you are tell them: I Am ZION!! As Zion is in the midst of Jerusalem, so the Lord is in the midst of His people, the Lord God, in the midst of you is mighty! CHRIST in us the Hope and glory, and we are in Him abiding. He is our head and we are HIS body! WHO is Zion, who is Jerusalem? Who is the city where the LAMB is the light? I Am, WE ARE- You can call me ZION!
Again the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying, thus said the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury. Thus said the LORD; I am returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth …
Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.
As Mount Zion is in the midst of Jerusalem, so the Lord is in the midst of HIS people.
Because Christ lives in us! The tabernacle of God is with men.

I know this journey has become very difficult for you, but I want you to know that you have not failed me, but in truth it is a passage way, a deep bend off the beaten path; yet, it is the way. I am the way, remember that. You are in me, and I in you, WE are in the Father. My Spirit has compelled you to come hither, and you have answered that call; but, it has brought you to this place that feels like a hollowed canyon, where an endless stream has cut through a path for you, and still the waters flow … This the way of the deep, calling. This road I’ve brought you on to travel has, increasingly, proven to be more narrow, and more difficult, as time moves on, still I am with you. Did I not say, “lo, I am with you always?” It should comfort you to know there is no other way for you to go, for you are walled in with me, so deep, so narrow, and so high there can be no wrong turn from here. For we have converged upon the mountain now, there is no where else for you to go. Remember those days your heart would swell with joy when you stood from it, so far? From a distance cool rains and sunsets washed a glory mist upon it, and you wept for the beauty of it. Knowing, someday, someday … Well beloved SOMEDAY has come, for my people are converging upon the mountain of The Lord, and it will test and try you but know this for certain, there was a time when you had many ways that you could choose to go, but you have chosen THE WAY, and have embarked upon its path, did I not say straight is the path and narrow the gate that leads to life and few there be who find it? Now follow me, nothing that you have done wrong has put you here, but it is that ford, that bend, that bridge that is taking you to the other-side, representing those crossings beyond your own ability, that takes you into mine. See my hand extended to comfort you? Though not far from you, have I not always reminded you I am near? Know that your cries are heard by me as much as your silence, you cannot be left alone- your walls are continually before me, as my walls surround you. I am the rock-cut from the mountain of the Lord. Fashioned with out hands, you’re anchored in the cornerstone of the promises of the Father, who is not a man that he should lie, or the son of man that he could be mistaken. Your journey is one of purpose, at the crossing of man’s ability and into the endless possibilities that are mine. The mountain of The Lord increases, my Kingdom is come. We will make our debut, as the church triumphant, they will know those whom overcome as the pillars of the temple, bearers of the weightiness of the glory of the Father, in the place HIS presence abides.
Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed. “I will make justice the measuring line And righteousness the level; Then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies And the waters will overflow the secret place.
Solomon’s Song 2:14
“O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, In the secret place of the steep pathway, Let me see your form, Let me hear your voice; For your voice is sweet, And your form is lovely .

My hope is that if you are a believer in the healing power of God, this article will encourage you and reinforce what you already know. That is, that Jesus settled the healing question by the work of the cross. If you debate that truth, don’t bother with me. I’m ruined, you can’t help me. There is nothing you can say or do to change my mind. We’ve seen it, heard it, and have handled it with our own two hands, the Word of Life. We have set our stakes in the promise land of healing. We have had our Jericho and our AI’s we’ve learned our lessons of faith, endurance, and trust. Our mandate has been go, drive out the inhabitants of the land, displace them, and take possession of that which belongs to the Child of God. For it is the children’s bread! The one who sits at the table of the Father. We take Luke 10:19 literally, “I have given you authority to tread upon scorpions and serpents and over all the power of the enemy, nothing by any means shall harm you.” And the last part of that scripture, that says rejoice not that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice rather, that your names our written in the Lambs book of Life. Our testimony to the Fire Wall of God!
As Heathens Rage
Confiscating rainbows take them for the Loud.
Time drummed arrows hidden in the shroud.
See? They seize land, Sky, and water, turn them as a loan.
The Dreamers are all transits now, no space, place, or home.
“Who do you say you are?” The Old Magician casts his staff …
“Remember, ancient charmer, the one who sits and laughs?”
“Why vanity do they imagine, why do the heathen rage?”
Tell me keeper of the scrolls, as time turns the page.
How one thinks is how one is, deceivers know it plain,
Tells them what they want to here; their opiate for the pain.
Still, the Charmer’s magic snake, the budding rod consumes.
Remember, God is not dead, nor OCCUPIED is his tomb.

Every true call of God begins with salvation- Passover. Enters into Pentecost- Fire. Then onto a journey of unbridled trust, and abandonment to God- Tabernacles.
Those who do not advance forward, through all of the above, become the former, who persecutes the latter. King Saul ended his journey plagued with stubborn disobedience. Unlike David who accomplished his journey with a correctable heart, in obedience to God. Saul, forgetting their common enemy relentlessly pursued David. At one time, David was as a son to Saul, one of his own household. They sat at the same table together. But Saul’s heart began to turn against David, the Lords anointed, until David’s life was in peril, and he had to go in hiding.
Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.”
1 Samuel 9-28 The Connection between Saul and David, Pentecost and Tabernacles.
As simple as I can put it, Saul was crowned king during Pentecost. Later, David, escaping Saul, did so in the tradition of the festival of booths. Hiding in the wilderness under an open heaven. The picture we have here is that the Pentecostal experience must keep moving forward as an unfolding movement, not a destination. It is not the end of the trail, to end all trails! Saul was sent to find his Father’s donkeys, during that time he crossed paths with Samuel and began to prophesy. The bible says this encounter began to change him! But Pentecost is a feast of first fruits, so Pentecostalism is only the beginning of the process. Tabernacles is an end of harvest celebration that is commemorated out doors as The Festival Of Booths. Reminding the Jews of the faithful provision of God in the wilderness. This process, this wilderness training, is needed for the saints of God to obtain the promised land of their inheritance. Entering into abundance while remembering who is the provider.
We see in this story in 1 Samuel beginning in chapter 9 that Saul became God’s anointed King, losing his crown to David because Saul supposed he could think for God and “fill in” for the priest, conducting his own sacrifice. In other words, he assumed an “I am all, be all attitude; David, immediately, there after, was anointed to replace Saul after this sin.
1Samuel 15:22-23 Has the Lord greater delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to HEED than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.”
It is an age old battle, and continuing saga illustrated in the story of David and Saul.
Allegorically, it’s reflected in many aspects of life where one authority has lost its crown and called to make room for another; from world dominions, to church sanctuaries, and beyond. More specifically where the Lord has departed from disobedience and has found a place for His Spirit to rest upon others, in their obedience. Where His favor has shifted, or His striving has lifted, from an unrepentant stiff necked soul, church, or nation. Of whom were given much in days gone by. It has a broad spectrum of application in its spiritual lessons from shepherds to kings.
For this narrative David’s character Is the one in Christ’s own image, even HIS CHURCH, as God’s anointed whom Christ is the head, yet who dwells (in these end times) as lambs among wolves, in a day of many towering steeples, under a Saulinian rule. Saul was chosen by God, anointed, he was head and shoulders above the rest in stature, a celebrated warrior King, full of destiny. But Saul disobeyed God.
This story played out in God’s own house when jealous Saul became embittered over the unlikely, rising star, David. Saul understood the favor David had with God, and man, because he once had it; sadly, he lost his privilege by disobeying the Lord and his commands, as if Saul’s judgements were superior to the Lord’s instructions. We see this same kind of attitude in what’s suppose to be Christ’s Church, when leadership attempts to handle the moves of God, and the manifestations of His Holy Spirit, according to their natural understanding. Often quenching the Spirit. On a much larger scale they do this according to their self organized counsels, posturing over manifestations of his presence, and outpourings of His Spirit, as if they were of their own making.
Supposing to preside over moves of God that are birthed from the unseen realm of the Spirit.
This Saul type wants David’s exploits counted as his own. He sees the Lord’s favor on him and knows not to trifle with David. Saul puts David in battle after battle to destroy him, but David wins because God is with him! While David is serving Saul, he is winning the favor of the people. Nothing Saul does against David works. His jealousy and anger invites an evil spirit into Saul, and now his work against David is empowered by the demonic. David finds it necessary to retreat from Saul’s growing opposition against him, as God’s anointed.
David, loving, gifted, beautiful David, slipped out of Saul’s grasp, and went hiding in the woods.
This story is not unlike those buffeted, persecuted, and martyred as John the Baptist, Elijah, and the saints of old; including reformers to this present age. Seeking refuge in the wilderness, in caves, in catacombs; those of whom the world was not worthy, fleeing lands, and property; going into hiding. Captured, jailed, like John the revelator. Martyred as John the Baptist, James, Peter, and Paul; later, reformists like William Tyndale, and Jan Hus who was burned at the stake. Non conformists who were ordered not to preach, imprisoned for obeying God rather than man. Such as John Bunyan of Pilgrim’s Progress, and George Fox who preached among the puritans in the colonies; among the Quakers who brought prison, and asylum reform, as well as education; who taught against oppression towards women, Native Americans, and slaves; who worked for the freedom of slaves.
These revolutionary, nonconformists, lovers of God; brought renewals, revivals, awakenings, and reformation, to the old and new world. In order to do so they went into Tabernacles.
Most importantly they brought freedom to the oppressed. But not with out a price. The old regime, the former moves of God- solidified into the monuments they do always seem to become, persecuting the prophets of (God ordained) change. These that do this cannot move on with the Spirit. Many even now, recognize manifestations of former glory, but slowly become strangers to the present glory of God who is a pillar of fire by night, and a cloud of glory by day, that was the Israelites day of Tabernacles! God himself leading them out as one massive river of people, ever moving the saints, by HIS Spirit onward and upward!
But this progression cannot be void of prophets, the more controversy we face in our life, the more abrupt the change, the more it is evident that we have NOT had that anointing operational in our midst. Seamless transitions to bigger and better tomorrow’s are made easier by the consistent work of a prophet’s anointing in the house. A house void of this anointing, set in the church, for a long period of time goes no where of any significance, and will begin to erupt with conflict and controversy when a true prophet comes to set among them.
It’s the difference between what is done when a house is under consistent maintenance or gross neglect. One is a smooth operation of transformation; however, the neglected house abruptly turns into a construction site.
Had the Body of Christ, simply been allowed to function freely in all its gifts and anointings the house would have been kept in impeccable care. One man, one platform, one microphone is not the body. Never was. Never will be. These Saulinian types often resist full body functionality, preaching against God’s prophet’s rather than for them. What ever the anointing is that has charge, under a Saulinian type, the higher anointings of greater service are consistently eliminated, until they are worked out the door. No one will ever achieve equal status, nor be mentored and released, for a similar work under the Saulinian type, unless full contribution and/or loyalty towards Saul’s achievements are rendered. Remember, Saul’s reign has no posterity. No one will take Saul’s place from his Saulinian line. When King Saul died, that enhanced operative to control, embitter, and batter, reserved itself for an end time seat, to reside over twice the sons of hell that he was. In religious Churchianity all over the world. Driving their Davids into Tabernacles, and reinforcing their Saul’s that hate them.
Saul and David is a whirl wind dynamic that began with the fall of man. No one is with out sin. However, some learn to live, happily, with the Spirit of Christ draining from them.
God in his mercy towards the sheep cycles in prophets, and then out again, at various stages of growth and maturity, in His attempt to shepherd his flock out from under the power and control of those whom increasingly find the Davidian company in the cross hairs of their own jealousy. While seeking to preserve and/or temper His prophets in patience, God releases them to seasons of seclusion in order to heal. While working for all to unify them with the rest of the body. We cannot blame true sheep for revolving doors, sheep are just looking for someone to lead and feed them, they are the first indicators of how barren the pasture may be, or scary it has become. In the same way we cannot blame prophets for retreating to their hiding place, under a hail of stone throwing. To the pharisees Jesus said, “You do always kill the prophets”.
The New Saulinian Establishment
This same Saulinian spirit, in this present generation, rides in on the anointing, while in the association of many prophets, and continues in office on a vapor, even while the lamp stand of the Lord is whisked away. This Saul is able to create an illusion of greatness and power, by form and font, by animation and mirage. By young admiring Davids lending enthusiasm, music, poetry, and song. While the warmth and glory of the Holy Spirit is subtly replaced by something “other” in these sanctuaries, so familiar to us all. It seems to have everything better, in this electronic age. Lighting, and digital media, displayed on monitors around the sanctuary. Electronic wind, waves, and fire subtly replacing God’s glory- His waves, His wind, His fire.
In these places a political current emerges where natural charisma, the smooth tongued, and flamboyance replaces appointments; persecuting genuine anointings, polluting the house where God’s power was once displayed, with a POLITICAL spirit. This begins with the same way it started with Saul.
Where David is a threat, yet a required asset to keep the lights on, and the passion burning. Devoted admiring young Davids love Jonathon and Saul. But, promotion and promises graduate to what serves Prophetic Saul best on the outward appearance, of his own reputation, rather than on the quality of the inward man, and God’s plan. It raises havoc against instruments of renewal, restoration, and deliverance. Releasing cycled intervals of expectation and hype; that rises and falls. Revolving doors that never stop sucking sheep, emotionally fleecing them, while they are rotating out, still looking for that green pasture, where they can belong, and offer their fleece for God’s glory. They are left exhausted of what is erroneously thought to be Christian service. Many institutions like this, and their leaderships are prisoners to what once was, serving the monument of yesterday’s former glories. Forgetting the God that breathed power into them.
They are worse than dead churches, most formal. In these pulsating, clamoring walls, where there are few lasting relationships nurtured beyond the foyers and parking lot … God is gone and no one notices.
While the remnant, seemingly, does not exist and this is taught to be so. That is too exclusionary! But, they do not perceive the hour and the season they are in. The Davidian remnant does as David in the territory of the Giants. Dominions are being displaced in the outskirts of the land belonging to heathen entities, David is taking them one village at a time from a stronghold resting in obscurity, because God is with HIS anointed.
1 Samuel 21 – Ahimelech the priest- David, fleeing from Saul, comes to the city of Nob.
Now David came to Nob, to Ahimelech the priest. And Ahimelech was afraid when he met David, and said to him, “Why are you alone, and no one is with you?” So David said to Ahimelech the priest, “The king has ordered me on some business, and said to me, ‘Do not let anyone know anything about the business on which I send you, or what I have commanded you.’ And I have directed my young men to such and such a place.’
Commentary described this as a lie, but was it? Who’s King David referring to? It seems to be Saul, but in this allegoric commentary it is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Calling the Church into hiding on an assignment. God is displacing the enemy, and no one knows. Not Saul, nor those great men of war near by. What plans and pursuits given to David and His band of brothers in hiding, belong to them to steward. David isn’t giving that away. For Saul is looking for David.
Promotion Comes From The Lord
As Pharaoh, Herod, and Saul, sought to slay God’s anointed in their youth, so this same spirit desires to destroy new beginnings and fresh anointings, in their infancy. What makes Saul’s form of betrayal in the Church more poignant is that Saul’s fellowship with David was once sweet, David loved Saul and Jonathan. At one time Saul called David his son, Jonathan’s soul entwined with David’s in brotherly love. Many destinies of those anointed have suffered the piercings of Saul’s jealous javelin, by believing this elite’s table is where their promotion comes, or where God is going to fulfill his plan with them. Enduring years of abuse, and promised rewards; as Saul promised David his daughter, only to give her to another- so this same kind of operative never delivers on promised platforms and promotions; but rather, when the time to deliver has come, jealous barbs like flying spears sail. For this Saul spirit recognizes the anointing that displaces him. David was empowered by God, His favor rested upon him.
He That Overcomes Will I Make
The furnace of much affliction has its chosen, for iron there is silver, for brass there is gold. Even David once sat at Saul’s table and served him. The Saul spirit does greater damage in the kingdom of God than Pharaoh’s magicians and Herod’s henchmen, for he understands prophetic accuracy. He knows exactly who has inherited his place, and he has them marked. Unlike Pharaoh and Herod who only knew by omens. Saul, recognized David’s anointing, for he once walked with God. It is far better to part company with Saul, and join David in obscurity, un wanted and unrecognized, than sitting as subjects of politically fueled religious associations. Where their own relevance is carefully guarded; seeing to it that new works, and the anointings that bring them in, never arise. That they never get past their infancy. Thank God for the reformers that threw off religious restraints, who brought forth the capacity for God to do a new thing in the earth. Thank God that He warns his anointed, for those Davids, who go hiding in the woods.
Among The Prophets
This anti type is a spirit that operates characteristically, as a Saulinian influence over many churches today. Saul who ran with a company of prophets, and even prophesied with them, before taking his position as King, started out right and went wrong. David was a prophetic psalmist set apart, as a shepherd, that God replaced Saul with. So it is not astounding that these two “types” are found in the camp of the prophetic, among the most prolific and apostolic moves among the nations, even now.
Those gifted by association and those gifted by grace. Even while Saul persude David to kill him, he couldn’t prophesy David’s demise. 1 Samual 19:24
when Saul happened upon the vicinity of Samual, Saul by association began to prophesy. Saul was asked of, “Is he a prophet as well?” Saul was moved by other prophet’s prophetic gift to prophesy, but that source was not with him, alone. As it is now many people have prophetic encounters, when in the company of strong prophetic anointing. That is why the camp of the prophetic is like no other camp, no other anointing can slip so easily into occult darkness than those who once walked in the presence of strong prophetic influences, as Saul had with his company of prophets, and his personal advisor Samuel. And then suddenly find themselves in the dark, when the Samuels and Davids of this world who are generators of that gift are gone. How can a young man searching the hillsides for his father’s donkeys, suddenly find himself as an anointed king graced with the spirit of prophecy, and favor- how can he not finish with great gratitude, and humility, for being chosen? Saul wanted a perpetual crown, perpetual power, and he could have had it. But Saul disregarded God’s anointed. The priest he assumed position of, and the king called to replace him.
Laying it down. Giving it up. Letting it die.
His reliance upon the power of his office, rather than the one who gave him that power displaced Saul’s crown, and transferred it to another.
Yes he was once the Lord’s anointed but no longer was he God’s chosen point man to get the job done for his people. Ministries, churches, and denominations, can thrive forever with out the spirit of Christ in them. The organization can run like a well oiled machine but what kind of oil is it? Synthetic or the crushed fruit from the pure vine? Processed and purified, this is the anointing that drips from the brow of those who seek Christ, rather than reputation. This the result of being set apart. This is David hiding in the Woods.
Draped In Controversy
Many have recognized the struggle between the anointed, who stands appointed and approved, and the anti anointed, un appointed, and unapproved. The Davidian anointing waits upon the Lord for promotion, and continues to pray for resolve … That God will handle the turmoil of the deposed, with His own right hand of RIGHTEOUSNESS while sparing His man or woman, that HE approved, in the controversy; as He did David. The bible tells us that offenses will come, but woe to him by whom they come. David and Saul were men among their own!
Still the principle is in play with a multi- faceted application. Who will wait upon the Lord, who will trust in Him, who will advance His kingdom? Who lives as His anointed, called, and chosen? The Church triumphant will emerge from obscurity and take the reigns of spiritual conquests in these end times. Saul, on the other hand, realizes His great error in a rude awakening after seeking a witch. But not soon enough.
You see, the most devastating error lies among those who have seen the power of God and have fallen away from it.
The evidence of His love, HIS hand in the supernatural. When the Spirit of God departs from such a one as he did Saul, who himself prophesied, and even couldn’t help from prophesying … Yet, in all of that Saul suffered in a famine of the WORD! God quit talking to him! Jonathan loved David, but continued his loyalty to Saul, his Father, as many offspring of Charismata movements do the same. They cannot depart from the amazing first house, the one becoming the stronghold of Saul.
This is much like those who beget sheep in a form that welcomes David’s worship- is enamored with him, but stays with the model that has all the bells and whistles, all the lights and glammer.
Saul’s legacy falls with him, as his posterity, as well. Nothing from his rule remains, that can stand, and continue, with David. The two shall not mingle. Jonathan’s dream to rule with David flys away, as he lies dead gathered with Saul. Far better it would have been for him to be with David; in the shadows of the rock, in the heat of the desert, rather than in Saul’s assembly; if only Jonathan, himself, went in hiding. He would have had to betray his heritage, but his heritage fell into error, and Jonathan would cling to both David and Saul. This is the fly that spoils a barrel of ointment. For this reason it would have been better for Jonathan to defect, and go into exile, leaving behind the polished world of Saul’s estate. To be with God’s anointed, the lowly shepherd King. With David hiding in the woods.
For this narrative, this allegory, the Saulinian rule is still at large among the religious elite today. Even among our prophetic circles, word oriented camps, worship and healing movements, born of the last century. These beautiful moves of God provided the Body of Christ with so much. Solidified into monuments of brick and mortar. A stone cold rigamortis, persecuting their Davids, and sealing the fate of their Jonathan’s.
Systemic Babylon, Saul’s Harlotry, And Anti-Christ
These systems blow around the globe like weather patterns shifting atmospheres in and out. David, God’s anointed, suddenly, un expectantly, encounters Saul. Saul is casing David’s movements from a far, his messengers feed Saul with updates he seeks to snare David with. He says to himself, “If I can only corner David in a city with gates and bars!” How much the institutional CHURCH desires to detain the Davidian Anointing! But, David retreats into the woods, the clefts of the mountains, the wilderness, and plains, where the warfare is on Heaven’s terms, he knows his hiding place is in God. There is no boundary of possibilities there, for hiding, for resting, for drinking from the cool springs in the garden of En Gedi; no wonder a water fall is named after him there. A place for God’s anointed far from the royal table from where he once fellowshipped with Saul, with in his walls. Apart, David lies low for planning, for watching through the trees, he studies the open landscape where he can see from where Saul’s men come, while he waits on God. DAVID is trusting the Father, among his band of brothers with him. David is hiding in the WOODS.
The Appointed Has Become The Imposter
The roll-out from Saul’s influence over to David’s full scope of authority breeds political persecution from the Saulinian regime that presents itself in the atmosphere of many Churches, today, and denominations in these end-times. Saul is warring against David. David’s headquarters are rustic, hidden; a hollowed ground by the tears of a psalmist who pulls on heaven above as his soul longs for God. The kingdom is in David’s hands, as is Saul’s life. Saul stands in a place that has been taken from him, in spirit; still, the Saulinian rule seems dressed, robed, crowned, and revered, while the dew of the morning wets the young King’s garments sleeping in the wilderness. Nevertheless, favor and the anointing rests on David. Of David’s own people, and of this world’s god, are the enemies of the Davidian reign.
Jesus said, If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. But, that doesn’t take away from Christ whom sits with heaven as HIS throne, no more than it takes away from the Lords feet, that rests upon its footstool, which is the earth.
The king “IS king” from crown to toe. Of him that is not recognized, of him that is persecuted in the earth, of him who has been rejected as David; the powerful warrior King, the one truly advancing the kingdom, will be revealed in the day of HIS appearing when He comes. Christ the head is crowned sitting upon His throne, His feet subduing the earth under the canopy of obscurity, one life, one village, one soul at a time. The Kingdom is not something that can be observed, let us go over here, let us find it over there. But like leaven in bread it rises and overcomes un observed. They that walk in the Spirit, that do not the works of the flesh advance the kingdom, every where the foot treads …
The Parable of the Leaven Mathew 13:33 Another parable He spoke to them: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.
Luke 17: 20-24 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst. And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it. And they shall say to you, See he’s here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them. For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
As David Did So Do We.
We sing, we dance, we wait on God to subdue our enemies before us. Saul will be dealt with by God, David will not touch Saul’s crown. He doesn’t have to. Saul is stirred by envy and jealousy, he is fixated on destroying David; yet, David’s worship once settled Saul’s soul. But, David cannot yield to Saul’s summons, his invitations to come and perform his music; to sit at Sauls table where Saul is the head-
Not because David cannot honor Saul, but because Saul cannot control his jealousy … David must remain in the woods, in the wilderness, in the caves, and bathe in the streams of the En Gedi.
God’s once appointed and anointed who set up his own altar, on his own terms now eyes his predecessor; while heaven is brass to Saul, and he begins to wonder after other voices for lack of hearing any more- Saul standing in the holy place, an ordained position in the office once graced with the decor of God’s favor from dominions to the altar of God- is now being defiled by a stranger, standing in the Holy place of seeking.
Out of desperation to hear from Heaven in a draught of HIS WORD … those standing in the same place as Saul, have turned to a spirit of divination, while all along persecuting the house of DAVID. Hoping David will seek the comforts of a city of gates and bars, not unlike our religious institutions rigid in form and formality, where the Saulinian rule can corner and counter God’s anointed vessel. A place that boasts of comforts, is designed to kill what sets apart David from Saul. But, David listens to the voice of the Father. David goes hiding in the woods.
The bricks, stones, and mortar of Saul’s empire in all its applications stands out the most in our denominations where the temple of the Holy Spirit is replaced by an institution, where His Spirit is no longer sought out, where His voice has been replaced by another. Where the very walls mock and persecute the lingering faithful … In every place the Holy Spirit is second to men and women who put their agenda above the Father’s. Still, David waits and accomplishes the Lord’s directives under the shadows from where he hides, dodging Saul’s campaigns while he battles the enemies of The Cross. The House of David moves like a river flowing seamlessly, as one, all the gifts and offices are in use. Each man and woman in their positions and call. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.
Extending the reach of the Father’s dominion, with a remnant of the broken; David, anointed to be king with the disparaged, and disenfranchised, waits upon the Lord, in obscurity, much like many of the saints down through the ages, of whom the world is not worthy; powerfully prophetic; amazingly apostolic; manifesting Christ in the earth.
A Mighty warrior, pursued relentlessly by a standing King from whom the Lord has departed, Ichabod! The remnant in these end-times is as David, and his rogue band of brothers. Dwelling as citizens of a kingdom hiding in plain sight. Ever increasing in glory and power. While Saul driven to madness searching a closed heaven, in a famine of the WORD, seeks out a dead prophet through the witch of Endor. Sealing his demise. He that despises God’s anointed seeking to confine him in a fortress of gates, and walls made of men; only desires to eliminate what he sees as a competitor. It was Saul’s delight to hear that David was in the city, he knew he could corner him there. Not unlike the walls of our own strong opinion where those called by God are held in captivity. Ruthless, religious cities, godless Christian institutions, heartless slave powered corporations, fleecing the people to keep their mammoth fortresses lit up, while making their disciples twice the sons of Hell, that they are. These raised up bearing Christ name who came out from us, but are not of us, are rather aligning themselves as associates of the Great Whore Babylon. The cry of the Father is, “Come out from her my people; why should you suffer in her judgments?”
Do you think there are not houses for God, even now, being conditioned to follow the voice of the stranger?
Still, the first to embrace David was Saul’s own offspring. This is that great decision, that exodus, the fleeing out of Babylon, before her fate is sealed. Finding true fellowship among the Davidian Company. Where the Lion of Judah prepares for his open reign beginning with the remnant. As King David was recognized first, of JUDAH, so the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, is revealed for all eyes to see Him, whom they have pierced; along with those who drank of HIS cup in the fellowship of HIS sufferings. Unfolding that which was concealed in the Old Testament, and revealed in the new. Israel will see HIM, and mourn for HIM.
Brought from obscurity, delivered from the grave, raised the third day … In His likeness God’s anointed knows rejection, knows well the clefts of the mountain. The hiding places, the caves, the woods, the deserts, and streams each place named; the Father’s favor and demonstration of power rests upon those who obey, for obedience is better than sacrifice, and seeking to be known by Yeshua, the God who Saves, is far better than to be known by reputation, title, or position.
Psalms 2:7-9 The Earth is the Lord’s
Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in!
Many have obtained greatness under the banner of the cross, but the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ resting in the clefts of the Rock, is triumphant and true, shrouded in the rolling mist of His glory, that pours down the ravines of the mountain of the Lord. From this place goes forth the dictates of HIS throne, the one whom the world hides from, is the one whom the remnant nation sits with, in high places. This place the Saulinian rule cannot obtain, cannot breach, cannot control, but has become disqualified in sharing in the bounty of David, his spoil. The kingdom of God so near, so wonderful, so great, visibly impacting the earth from unseen realms, peers through the eyes of the obedient saints, who reflect God’s glory.
Soon and very soon we shall see the King, and His anointed subduing dominions, the house of David, will no longer be hidden in the woods.
Nevertheless, as an ode to all former rivals that once cleaved to Christ, and came from those among His, the establishments, the denominations, and alliances; the beauty and honor of David’s lament mourns former friendship, companionship, and fellowship, that once was found in the House of Saul, in the early days of Charismata.
David’s Lament for Saul and Jonathan 2 Samual 19:17-27
David took up this lament concerning Saul and his son Jonathan, and he ordered that the people of Judah be taught this lament of the bow (it is written in the Book of Jashar):
“A gazelle[a] lies slain on your heights, Israel.
How the mighty have fallen!
“Tell it not in Gath,
proclaim it not in the streets of Ashkelon,
lest the daughters of the Philistines be glad,
lest the daughters of the uncircumcised rejoice.
“Mountains of Gilboa,
may you have neither dew nor rain,
may no showers fall on your terraced fields.
For there the shield of the mighty was despised,
the shield of Saul—no longer rubbed with oil.
“From the blood of the slain,
from the flesh of the mighty,
the bow of Jonathan did not turn back,
the sword of Saul did not return unsatisfied.
Saul and Jonathan—
in life they were loved and admired,
and in death they were not parted.
They were swifter than eagles,
they were stronger than lions.
“Daughters of Israel,
weep for Saul,
who clothed you in scarlet and finery,
who adorned your garments with ornaments of gold.
“How the mighty have fallen in battle!
Jonathan lies slain on your heights.
I grieve for you, Jonathan my brother;
you were very dear to me.
Your love for me was wonderful,
more wonderful than that of women.
“How the mighty have fallen!
The weapons of war have perished!”
There is this thing about prophetic scribing that is amazing to me, it has an element of timelessness. I was some where in my blog today. I don’t even know where. These two numbers came up and I thought of tomorrow’s date. Because it was. It was tomorrow’s date but of scripture. You’ll figure out the date I’m talking about in the text. But, I’m not wanting to date anything at the moment, because sometimes dating a scribal work can be distracting.
But any way, I read the two or three paragraphs and the Lord prompts me. He prompts me to repost it for today, tomorrow, and beyond for who ever needs it. It was a few paragraphs from an article that I landed on today doing some maintenance work on my website, and after the Lords urging, and the copy and paste, I lost it! But that’s fine I’m sure you or I can do some detective work and find it somewhere on the website. But, right now I’m wanting to release this word. Once again for another prophetic cycle- God is good. In Christ, and with love here we go!
But, many of my servants of late have said, “ Lord my budget is not being made!” If I am faithful and my servant falls short, time after time, than who is at fault? Will I not always provide for my own? If this is so than what endeavors have you taken on that I support not? If they are not supported, are they of mine, says the Lord? Has the world you are living in remained the same, that it is not due for adjustments? I have adjusted, I have led, I have appointed, says the Lord, have you followed?
Therefore, this is why many will only reflect upon my glory as a thing of the past, rather than a realty of the present. Where fanfare upon their arrival has been the order of the day, but the power will wane in time. Budget, conditions, and facility, has been the determiner of an acceptable path, rather than the perfect way.
For that way- I have not immediately disclosed the treasures of my kingdom found there, to glean from among you the glitter fly. For men and women are my treasures, and gold is still found in the mouth of the catch of the day, to pay your obligations. Be fishers of men, and I will show you the hidden pools. They are not found city to city, but from stream to stream, says the Lord.
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another …
A time will come when those who walk after the Spirit, will find themselves fishing from the streams of the desert, where Jackals still roam, says the Lord, in the minds of those I’ve called them to. To set a captive free while yet in captivity. These open doors, and pathways, will be for the wise not fools. The hidden will be made known to their brethren, and they shall return with a countenance of joy and reflections of my glory upon them. Seek the Ancient Path.
Seek the ancient paths.
Have you ever had a wild dream that seemed to go on and on like an epic movie, and when you woke up you thought about it for days wondering WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?? Maybe some of these dreams are the imagination of an avid movie goer, over stimulated by an action packed night of coke, popcorn, and adventure heroes. But WHAT IF you’re not an avid movie goer, but a prophetic prayer warrior? Joel 2 says GOD IS GOING TO POUR OUT HIS SPIRIT in the last days! Young and old, men and women, boys and girls, are going to PROPHESY, have DREAMS, and VISIONS, before the great and terrible days of the LORD! Recently I was going through my journal of dreams submitted for interpretation, and I ran across this one that I strongly felt was not only speaking to the dreamer but paralleling America, as well. The theme has to do with home invasions. What is remarkable is that one year later I myself would have an epic encounter in a vision of a home invasion, that revealed America would see a mass exodus of illegal aliens. This was in February of 2016, (It is published here at NWP) While at the same time doing the right thing by children. Called The Right Thing To Do.
Let me ask you something, if you had a huge pine tree cut down in your front yard while you were sleeping, do you think that would wake you up? AMERICA has been invaded and taken over by something other than herself, and we are just waking up to that reality. We are at a war at our very thresholds and only God can give us victory. Whether you get this prophetic process or not, whether you comprehend this prophetic dream or not, there is one thing you should take from it. We are in an era of great spiritual warfare that could very well manifest itself into an epic disaster for American lives, if we don’t get up and run to the battle, before that battle comes to our streets, our doors, and into our homes. SPIRIT WARS is an epic MOVIE that is not only COMING SOON, it is already here!
Dreamer writes: Thank you so much for taking the time to pray and respond to my request! This has been very encouraging, and I will spend time reviewing this and praying into it and responding to the wisdom here! Yes, our family has undergone tremendous attack, but each day, I am drawing closer and closer to Jesus and being more encouraged to hang on and press through. Thank you so much again! My words just can’t express how much this has meant to me.
Intruder dream Feb 3, 2015
I dreamed I was at my parents’ old house in our old city, and I was having an adult slumber party with some of my girlfriends. We were set up in the living room with mattresses on the floor. It was dark out, but we had the lights on inside. An intruder burst in the front door – it was a home invasion – and he was armed and shot me in the right thigh. I went down, and he stayed a little bit, and then he left. As soon as he left, I was able to close the door and lock it. I looked out the window, and a big jack pine tree had been cut down in the front yard at some point, and there were some branches down in the yard still, and some chunk slices of the trunk by the front walk (like how you cut a tree for firewood). I went back to the mattress. I was looking at the mattress at where I had bled from being shot in the leg, and there was quite a bit of blood on it. I looked at my thigh, and I saw the wound, and I saw that the bullet was in there. It looked white.
The next part of the dream was that I was in the hospital in the waiting room, and my parents were there, and I distinctly remember my son, ——–, there, and I wanted him to take pictures, because I wanted to show them that you could see the bullet just inside the wound. I was trying to get my dad’s attention, too. I was sitting in the chair, and I spread opened the wound, which had started to stick shut, and there was a pod or pouch thing – a seed pod – that came out of the wound, and I kind of pulled it a bit, and it was growing as I was pulling it out. The seed pod became a big white daisy-like flower that I turned around – and I was making sure that my son was documenting it – and I turned the flower around, and the centre of the flower was where the seed pod was, it was getting bigger and bigger by the second. It was actually holding a baby. By this time, it was the size of my hand, and I was holding it in my hand, and I was holding it up for him to look at – “is it breathing? Do you think it’s breathing”? I put it close to his face to see, and he said, “No.” And I said, “It’s because it’s still attached to me placentally.”
Then they finally got me into an examination room, and they were trying to help me up on the bed, but by this time, the baby had grown so much that it was the size of a real baby. From the time it had first just popped out of my thigh wound to 5-10 minutes later, it was a full-sized baby. I got up on the bed, and I was just holding it at my leg, and yet, it was acknowledged that I had been shot, and it didn’t make sense how this baby was a part of it. Then somebody in the next bed asked, “Didn’t you see the intruder outside”? And I said, “No. If there was any inkling that there was an intruder at the window, I would have seen him.” Then, there was a window on the bottom right side of my bed near the floor, and there was someone there that grabbed my hand, and I shook it off. Then I noticed my old friend, ——was in another bed and she had just had another baby. In the dream, I was very firm that I had wanted my son to be the one to document this.
The response to this dream includes adjustments to broaden its application to include what I believe is prophetic insight for what America is facing now.
Not that your battles are uncommon because of neglect. For they are common reflecting our world we live in; what is uncommon, and heroic, is your response and faith because you are displaying that we are more than conquerors through CHRIST Jesus. These are extraordinary battles because of the threat our families are to the kingdom of darkness. Above all else we can be sure of this- Nothing can separate us from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus.
Future Blessings for Zion
“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgement you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD.
A dream that parallels the CHURCH in many ways in the light of these end times.
Beloved, this is a dream revealing spiritual warfare that transcends generationally, manifesting itself in your life time, simply, because the days are evil. It is a work of darkness that has been transpiring for a significant amount of time outside of the realm of discovery until it has come upon you, like a home invasion. Literally, like a thief in the night. What the enemy did to the tree outside is what the thief attempted to accomplish against your family on the inside. I see it as the same assignment he wishes to accomplish against the Church in America. This is warfare, a hit against your family line. Trees represent legacy and heritage.
The sleeping party (state of the Church) (celebratory yet sleeping) is the recently present state that this invader has intruded upon, where you have suddenly found yourself in a fight for your life, a massive amount of blood is lost, the girl friends represent many fellowships or Churches that are the sleeping PARTY type. The window provided spiritual watchfulness but no watchman was watching. In retrospect you discover (through prophetic sight-fullness) the degree of vulnerability your family has been suffering, this answers the question “No one heard a Jack Pine being fallen in the front yard, no one saw anything through the window?” We need to exchange our sleeping parties for a war party, whose watchman stand through the night, WATCHING.
Nevertheless, this home intrusion is behind you now. Getting shot in the thigh is a wound you were astonished at. You have suffered astonishment over much that has happened. It has caused you to require a season of rest and recovery, but you are witnessing a supernatural occurrence right before your eyes. What Satan has tried to hobble your strength with, to destroy you with (the white bullet). Though MEANT FOR HARM, it will only work for your good, as you continue in your faith in Christ. You are also standing in a forunner’s anointing in your personal resolve to overcome. This will show the way for the bulk of those around you (Body of Christ) who will experience a similar rude awakening on a much larger scale, corporately.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
Out of it comes supernatural, and miraculous New Life. The gestation of it will not be hidden from you, but present it self in the seen realm. Those with you will benefit from watching your rebound, as well. As you continue to nurture your own personal recovery you will grow in amazement, watching what God is performing before your very eyes. The flowering stage is the end game regarding this hit against the promises of God, the pod of seeds are presenting multiplied potential, nurturing new works, information, promise, and a cluster of giftings that will match and exceed the level of satanic Intel it takes to perform this kind of trespass against families of God. This is the Father accomplishing a spiritual work in you, that will benefit many.
Still, a battle presents itself, a spiritually discerned remnant of the battle remains. (Hand to hand combat at the window while in recovery.) Your next dream expounds upon the nature of that battle and updates you on how it is looking now, or what is needed to completely destroy this demonic power.
Every battle won is completed by captured armaments.This is understanding the technology of our enemies warfare. Be not ignorant of the devil’s devices. God is bringing light and strategy against the works of darkness.
Second dream: Windows and another home invasion attempt, battle at the window until the arm is all that remains, yet it too is overcome. Husband stops to seek knowledge during a lul in the fight scene when in the middle of the fight. Another Ameriican parallel? Another battle at the threshold of French doors where the dreamer makes the attempt to change or straighten a child’s crooked mouth before coming through the doors, but it’s not working.
French window door intrusions are battles coming out of the unseen realm and being discerned as the spiritual attack that they are, through prophetic sight-fullness, before they actually occur, through an open door. Warning for a face off.
This dream is one that is in a sleeping room, where a bed is. The difference in sleeping in your own bed rather then the living room (as before) is that this is a place you are suppose to be sleeping. This is resting in Christ, able to be alerted and readily available in that alertness. Unlike the first dream which was an eagle eye view of living in a state of slumber (mattress in the living room) a perfect picture of the present Church in many ways. A multi dimensional view of what was, is, and the victory that is to come (as you continue in Christ) as the Church, herself, awakens into watchfulness and prayer. French windows are often windows that open like doors. Because this beast is finding its way through a windowed door, this window type displays a port of entry rather than a break in, this demon has found a door to enter in. It is being resisted, and identified, and you are being prophetically shown where you are at in this warfare. Again, the Church needs this kind of discernment, America needs it, as well. For even France itself is battling a home invasion, seeking to destroy cultural peace.
The king pin (muscle head) that presented itself through the windowed door is wrestled out, but there is more to resist, and understanding to gain. The room is woody and rustic because you are fighting a battle with eternal consequences in a temporary world that is perishing. Still, the most difficult part of the battle is in recess. Don’t let up, this intruder is nearly defeated in his assignment. Your spiritual work in warfare has wrought much victory, your husband seeking knowledge is a vital part. ( Or, knowledge seeking on your part.) Between the two types of warfare- prayer and the acquisition of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, this devil that seeks to kill, steal, and destroy, will be defeated. You will overcome by the BLOOD of the LAMB and by the WORD of your TESTIMONY.
Had this beast’s leg remained it would have meant he was rendered disabled.
You would have approached it and simply threw him the rest of the way out. Not so with the arm. The arm and hand is still able to seize you if an approach is not well thought out. But, because his arm remains it indicates the need for skill and strategy to rid its presence permanently. These things come not out but by fasting and prayer. Fasting and prayer takes us beyond natural understanding into super natural KNOWINGS and war room strategy. This here is that, through your supplications, prayers, and intercessions God answers us by revelation, knowledge, and understanding, often times through dreams and visions.
A Common Thread
The dreamer sees family passing through the French doors, back and forth where a battle once ensued. At one point a child’s mouth was crooked and she tried to force her mouth straight to no avail. Once again families will freely come and go, but attitudes will still need to be changed.
The third dream is revealing realtime prophetic encounters where familial interaction is passing back and fourth through the windowed doors. You are displaying powerful prophetic sight-fulness in these dreams. They have the potential to solve dilemmas. Here we see a cosmetic suggestion to make the issue better, but understanding the cause of why the child’s mouth is askew is overlooked, again the need to seek knowledge regarding the root of the issue. The Lord desires to perfect you in your spiritual gifting by adding to your prophetic gift words of wisdom, and a greater measure of spiritual understanding, again this may come through your husband as you co- labor, with him in Christ. Your approach to a problem, together, may bring a balanced resolve. As you pray and as he is in the word. Again, America needs to discern the deep issues coming in and out of her open doors, guarding transactions with a spirit of wisdom, and discernment which falls under that category, because what has been coming through America and Europe has not voiced themselves as in allegiance, or alignment, to cultural norms and standards. But rather, has begun to change them.
Indeed God speaks once, Or twice, yet no one notices it. In a dream, a vision of the night, when sound sleep falls on men, While they slumber in their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction …
With this cluster of giftings together spiritual maintenance will ensure joy and peace for the generation to come, rather than fending off battles no one sees coming until it is nearly to late. Not that your battles are uncommon all because of neglect, for they are common reflecting our world we live in, what is uncommon is your response and faith to rise up because we are more than conquerors through CHRIST Jesus. They are extraordinary battles because of the threat your family (and the Chrisitan family of God) is to the kingdom of darkness, therefore you are wanted dead or alive. Fight the good fight, and having done all continue to stand, HIS yoke is easy HIS burden is light. His rest is supernaturally refreshing, while our eyes are wide open. I want to say this to Christian America, as well, for her importance to the family of man in the days to come.
The last dream you will be encouraging renewal and restoration from loss endured by your heritage where battles have warn them down. So, this is you believing God for the security of your inheritance, posterity, and family legacy. With celebrated joy.
Zion’s Glory and New Name, Isaiah 62
For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep quiet,
Until her righteousness goes forth like brightness,
And her salvation like a torch that is burning.
The nations will see your righteousness,
And all kings your glory;
And you will be called by a new name
Which the mouth of the LORD will designate.
You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD,
And a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
It will no longer be said to you, “Forsaken,”
Nor to your land will it any longer be said, “Desolate”;
But you will be called, “My delight is in her,”
And your land, “Married”;
For the LORD delights in you,
And to Him your land will be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin,
So your sons will marry you;
And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
So your God will rejoice over you.
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen;
All day and all night they will never keep silent.
You who remind the LORD, take no rest for yourselves;
And give Him no rest until He establishes
And makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
The LORD has sworn by His right hand and by His strong arm,
“I will never again give your grain as food for your enemies;
Nor will foreigners drink your new wine for which you have labored.”
But those who garner it will eat it and praise the LORD;
And those who gather it will drink it in the courts of My sanctuary.
Go through, go through the gates,
Clear the way for the people;
Build up, build up the highway,
Remove the stones, lift up a standard over the peoples.
Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth,
Say to the daughter of Zion, “Lo, your salvation comes;
Behold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.”
And they will call them, “The holy people,
The redeemed of the LORD”;
And you will be called, “Sought out, a city not forsaken.”

PSALM 144:1 Blessed be the LORD my strength, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle.
Deana teaches on the sights and sounds of spiritual warfare.
Offenses come. They come with out any effort upon the heart of the easily offended. More willing to bear a grudge than respond with love, lovelessness abounds. Yet, offences bead off more easily from the heart who is perfected in love, because the one bearing the fruit of love endures all things. Those that love do not easily give up on LOVE. The scripture says in the last days the love of many will be like a blown out candle of wax, cold and hardened, rather than warm and pliable. The heart will “wax cold” the passage says.
This will happen because of the spirit of lawlessness in the earth increasing in the end times. People will make up their own laws right or wrong. Their laws will serve them, and them alone. They will trespass God’s law to serve their own agenda at the expense of everyone around them. These are those by whom offenses come. They are a cold wind- blowing out what’s left of love in their lives.
Sadly, they may be meeting out the measure of lovelessness given to them, but all too often, even the loved and favored forfeit love for gain, because selfish ambitions rule their hearts over natural affection.
For love they respond with indifference, graduating to intolerance, until there is no real or natural affection left in them. Only the next cold and cruel stage of disdain, that begins to fill their hearts with hatefulness that changes them. Their mouths begin to be filled with bitter barbs to hurt and wound, rather than to give grace, and comfort. Unfortunately, these hurtful actions afflict those that God has assigned to be in their lives, for friendship, for fellowship, for love and support; yet, hatred has filled the ill will of that one choosing to nourish bitter roots, rather than eradicating them from their being, out of obedience to the Father. God tells us to always be on the look out for opportunities that will bring reconciliation. For we, as Christians, are to be ambassadors of the Gospel of Reconciliation. Will we endure the northern winds when they blow upon our lives?
We shall, when close to the warming heart we rest, the nearer to God we be.
The Journey Back To Love
Approaching God with honest submissions of our struggle in forgivness, in grudges and offenses, and misunderstandings- opens up a world of mercy towards us because the Father says, “If you are faithful to confess your sins before me, I am faithful and just to forgive them, and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.”
We do this in supplications and prayers (not forgetting to give thanks to God) we make our desire to overcome lovelessness as a request to be made known to God, who will keep our hearts and minds in HIS perfect peace, when we do so. See Philippians chapter 4.
To rid ourselves of bitter roots requires conscious intent. Often addressing issues we don’t even want to look at. We may be in a state of numbness, knowing we don’t even care! Knowing we are that far gone! Going to the Father and telling Him HOW YOU FEEL in all honesty will begin a rehaul in your life, to love again.
It’s about your persuit to being whole, knowing you need it even though you may not be “feeling it.”
In King David’s story we see how he waited on God time and time again for reconciliation rather than justice. David who suffered betrayal by those he loved, over and over again. Who in the end did receive justice, because David’s enemies refused reconciliation. He poured HIS heart out for God to hear his lament over grievous disappointments, wounds that he sustained by those closest to him. One of those occurrences as written below:
“Had this been my foe, I would have endured the betrayal, but it was a friend, a brother, as one of my own household …”
Psalm 55:12-14 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him: But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance . We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
Pouring out our hearts to God is the beginning of healing those things that have wounded us so deeply, even when reconciliation is impossible, these honest complaints starts us out on a journey that brings peaceful resolve to our soul, if we continue seeking God in the process. The fact of the matter is sooner or later offenses will come, whether they are real, imagined, or misunderstood, nothing is worth the damage that harboring bitterness causes! For that state of being begins to harm back, multiplied, what was originally suffered. This making our bitter spirit hippocritical and foul in God’s eyes, while we have been forgiven by Him such great trespasses, we refuse to forgive others theirs.
This throws us into turmoil of soul when ever we see that person, or are reminded of an incident involving them or others.
Our soul literally begins to draw back and cringe up on the inside, our mind begins to plot an opportunity for revenge, an occasion to throw an insult, often over something that person has forgotten. We lose our balance, and bitterness and pettiness begins to consume us. When that happens there is no question it’s time to go to the Father and lay it all out before HIM. When we rehearse old offenses over and over again with a strange salty delight to do so, we are vexed with a spirit of bitterness. For our own spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical well being, we need to turn to God for help in eradicating these bitter roots out of our soulish realm. Befor they SPRING UP out of control, where by many become defiled because of the bitterness we spread.
Bitterness always leads us away from the Father. Bitterness will trouble your physical body and defile others in your sin of unforgivness.
We of the house hold of God need to remind ourselves of the danger of becoming hardened, because of the cruel afflictions of our own. Jesus said, offenses shall come, but woe to them by whom they come. Your insensitivity, your smallness of heart, could be that last straw, that cold wind of indifference, that draws the last bit of warmth from a heart battered, relentlessly, by the lawlessness of others. A pitiful soul that never knew love one iota seeking a glimmer of Christ, in the testimony called you, can get slapped by your coldness of heart. The law of Christ is to love one another, He said, “This is the greater commandment that you Love one another, as I have loved you …Beloved, let us love one another. They that love not, know not God, for God is love.”
Prayer: Lord renew an upright spirit with in me, help me love again, I choose to forgive others because I know that is right. Help me to release all offenses and let them go, for you have forgiven me of all of mine. Let all bitterness in my soul be washed out, cleanse me of its residual effects, help me bring healing to others, let love be my legacy, as I honor you with my life. In Jesus precious name, amen. Repeat as needed! Amen and amen!
Hope When Love Is Lost
Another startling condition, is that of one we love, whom has an embittered soul, where that flame of love has gone out, where no stirring, no breath of man can bring it back. Nothing anyone does brings that warmth back, it’s a grave and dark condition. In fact the stirrings and the blowing upon dead coals, or candles, only ensure what was once a flame, is no more. All loving efforts only perpetuates the absolute realization love is gone. But there is this amazing cycle of life that comes after the coldest of winters. This is hope that springs eternally in the power of our God, surrendering to Him the loss of love. Committing into His loving arms the loss of a loved one’s love. It is only the spirit of God that can quicken the dead back to life again. He can, He has, and He wills; but, we must love on, let go, trust and believe, casting our bread upon the waters …. Even the Word of Life who is the bread of life, as a release of our confession of faith, believing in the promise of that day of the restoration of all things- this faithful resolve works with in the inner chambers of the hardest of hearts. Remaining in love in our waiting. It is God’s job to fulfill His promises, it is our Joy to rest in them. Love bears all things, believes all things, because love endures … 1 Corinthians 13:7
Love receives reward
Love will endure the ache of separation, when the love of another has failed, remaining unwavered through the cold gales of winter. For the bud’s pre dawn is dormancy- The Holy Spirit’s stirring is able to awaken life deeply sleeping. Sorrow, loss, grief- suffering endures for the night, but joy comes in the morning! Trust that the wintery trek (given in God’s hands) of the coldest heart, will search for the compelling warmth of love’s hearth. This and our earnest prayers will bring the wearied soul to its (hearth) stones of rememberence, in the days where warmth abounded in the Fathers House! There is victory in Jesus, no matter how long we wait love endures and is empowered to do so. Even if we never get their love back, our goal is to see their return to the Father. This is unselfish love.
Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and go with singing unto ZION, an everlasting Joy shall be upon their heads, there shall sorrow and mourning flee away …
When True SPRING Comes
Will you trust them with me? Why do you sorrow so. I am working a work. The one you love is loved even more by me. I am working in the inner workings of soul and spirit, I Am the discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart, says The Lord, rest this matter in my hands and do not weather the matter more. Let it not ebb your joy. Your resolve to let go, live on, and leave it to me will hasten the recovery process, where both hearts will learn to rely upon me the more, and less upon one another, as their only source of refuge. The beginning season is here, where the dead seed in the ground, unseen by the eye, is going to be doing its miraculous work. Do you see this? That now faith is the substance of the thing hoped for the evidence of it yet unseen? Faith creates the perfect condition for me to work on behalf of all, in these sacred matters of the heart and soul. Let true spring rise in your soul this is your hope and glory. Christ in you.
