We had an awesome time in prayer last night, while on our INTO THE NIGHT Zoom call! There was a prophetic word in that intercession, about the church being the house of prayer for all nations, taking the ground and winning the battles in “travailing prayer” as a spiritual walk through, before “feet hit the ground” in the natural warfare of outreach and evangelism. Because prophetic prayer ministry is the spiritual walk through that secures the land before we hit the ground running! There is always push back just before we step out into any kind of ministry. It is something that always occurs when ever we endeavor to go out and fulfill any aspect of the great commission. Corporate prayer is the “we and us” of the Kingdom that replaces a more narrow look at the “me and I” in our callings, knowing one plants, another waters, but God gives the increase! Because HE is the Lord of the harvest. Being present among those being the “House of prayer for all nations” is a valuable part of a pre-emptive strike, that restricts the power of the enemy, when its time to go out and do God’s work. Often times we will be “better equipped” because of special focused prayers that download more instruction on specifics in the battle. The devil is highly experienced in how to keep us from even leaving the driveway. But, he is no match against the “Body of Christ” in their focused prayer and intercession, because Yeshuah is the head of the church! There are those that solicit intercessors to pray for them and their ministry, forgetting that they need to be the chief intercessor in their work for the Lord. We are not above our master in anything! The most effective men and women in the Bible, including our Lord, was those who were an intercessor first and foremost, above everything else they accomplished! A life of prayer was their greatest asset. Jesus didn’t do it alone and neither should we. While I have my own commissioning to tend to, that includes a prophetic teaching ministry, prayer is a huge part of that ministry. Prayer for another ministry is a privilege, we do this all the time. But I do something a little different in many of the prayer requests we get, I want the head of that ministry to join us in prayer for their own commissioning and call. To experience Christ in true kingdom governance in all he’s asked us to be and do, as one. We need to see our selves in the light of where we come from, and who we are, in the grand scheme of things, and being present in God’s assembly as a House of Prayer for all nations is the sum of what our basic service to Him looks like. As our life on this Earth begins in a home as God has designed it. So should our spiritual walk, in Christ, begin with the nurturing framework He has ordained on this earth, in the company of that place where the flaming lampstand burns! Rev. 2. In the midst of mantles, He has set, where His holy presence abides. Ephesians 4 Where the equipping of the saints and the gifts and health of the people flourish! –

Leaning Into The Lion
Leaning into the lion’s mane-
As I sit in my chair I closed my eyes and rested my head to the side and I see a vision in my minds eye of me resting my head on a lion. I am sitting in a beautiful oak forest on a cliff ledge, overlooking a valley surrounded by mountains with a river running thru the middle dividing it. It is autumn. The leaves in oak trees have turned into their autumn colors. Everything is a beautiful golden hue and it is dusk. I look at this majestic lion and he smiles at me with pride. As a father would smile at his child. I look back out over the valley and suddenly I notice I am standing in glorious shining armor. I look and see a sword in my right hand and shield in my left. Suddenly I am aware of my importance. I have been given an assignment. I hear the lion lovingly say in his calm kind voice “Beloved, you are fully equipped.” His low voice is so soft and firm it sounds like a rushing wind. Suddenly an army of soldiers in silver armor appear around me some on horse back and some on foot. They are surrounded by a misty fog. It’s probably early morning. They are all carring spears but I am not. We are marching along a river on a steep embankment. As fast as the soldiers appeared they disappear and I see my two children running around me. Playing and full of laughter. I am not worried about their safety. I am full of joy and purpose. I look ahead and I see the lion waiting for us with those same loving eyes. I look back and the same lion is following close behind us full of patience and loving kindness. I remember the phrase I have been hearing in my head “He goes before us and watches closely behind us” I also hear Isaiah 40:11 “He gently leads those with young.”

Holy Invasion Prophecy
During our Furnace Room Prayer the morning of 10/28/2021, I saw that a seed bearing company planted the word in a holy invasion in Washington DC., A light bearing one after them, and waves like water over the planting of the Lord. A dormant “counter” culture awakening, responding to the stimuli of Holy proclamation, and prophetic declaration, to the Esther arising, and the prodigals returning home. Enough to strike a contrast and make an impact. God is not done with DC. We should never stop the prayer of faith over those God has planted there. Some He uses for His purposes will make you laugh! Psalm 2. 1/28/2021 Prophecy.
You Should Be SCARED If ..
You are not a afraid of the one who has power over death, hell, and the grave!
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Revelation 1:18
Halloween is the season for folks to shake out their fears of a world unknown to them, of what goes bump in the night, shrouded in darkness. The irony of it all is that what they should fear is the Light. Where in HIM there is no darkness at all. They that love darkness have not the Light in them. Read the Gospel of John!
What We NEED To Be Afraid Of.
There is a condition that is more terrifying than just being plain lost, and ignorant of God’s love. And that is being lost, yet KNOWING His love and power. In fact, there are many in our world today that are still riding on the prayers of others, when ever they come to crises in their own life. But, I want to tell you about that moment in time when no one’s prayer is going to be able to do anything for you, but your own prayer of repentance and returning to Him. The prayers of others can bring you to the door, but your relationship with Jesus Christ and yours alone, will be the only thing that will take you across the threshold, of where you belong, into the Father’s House.
A crisis will certainly come, and it will come in a time that the last thing on earth that you will need is to be away from God. knowing too much about Him because you heard the Gospel preached to you a thousand times, isn’t going to help you, unless you take it to heart and let it change you from the inside out. Don’t be gospel hardened. This is how many will slip, seamlessly, into the second death without a care in the world, their heart crusted over to the point of no return, because they rejected God’s word over and over again with a smile on their face. God called it like this: Your lips are close to me, but your heart is far away. Remember, the Judas kiss .. From the man privileged to walk with Him in the days He was on this earth. Selling him out over what? 30 pieces of silver?
In the past you knew enough to get you by, you grew up as a church kid, or your grandpa was a pastor. Or, your mom was in love with Jesus. Or your whole family lived for God as Christians, and you’ve been the rebellious one. Being able to say all the right things in order to make people think you’re alright- when really you are not. The problem is, many in the “Land of the Free” know enough verbiage to create an air of being whatever they want to be, when it’s convenient to do so. You can absolutely defy nature and proudly say you’re something you’re not! But, for the Christian that doesn’t do a thing for them. They forget, devils believe also, and tremble. They tremble because they know what’s coming. In fact, devils may even be able to see what’s coming and where they are going, because their world is unlike ours. Abraham’s bosom or paradise (where the saints went before the resurrected Christ) saw a chasm between them and hell. Paradise could see hell! Abraham spoke to a rich man in torment that wanted a beggar (whom the rich man knew in the land of the living) to dip his finger in water and touch his tongue while he stood in the flames of hell. He begged Abraham to send Lazarus to warn his living brothers not to neglect the Father and Godliness. Luke 16:19-31
You see devils know too much. Their existence is a tormented one. They cried out for Jesus not to judge them before their “time.” We are not much different as they, for all mankind knows his time will expire. The angels who fell leaving their first estate knew too much.
They turned their back on the glory of God, and the privilege they had to be with him forever. Jude 1:6
Knowing all about the Bible, quoting scriptures, even calling yourself a bishop, while hooked on pornography, or sleeping around is a scary world to be living in right now! Or a pastor stealing money from the church, while hooked on drugs. These are not the days to know all that you know, to the point you can preach a sermon, yet you are rejecting Christ. You are not in the light. This is not the time to be drowsy or asleep; even, awake yet resentful, bitter, and full of un forgiveness.
You might not be a Christian leader at all. Just a faithful bible reader that’s gone to fellowship every time the doors were open, all your life. But, you’re full of bitterness, envy, and strife. Today is the day for salvation tomorrow may be too late. While you have breath in your lungs you should not wait another day. Right now, this scripture can work for you, and that is: “Whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved!” Pray this prayer to get you started:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I’ve let too much time pass before getting real with you. I’ve been living day to day with out you. On borrowed time, because nothing in this world is guaranteed. I know too much, I realize that it’s dangerous for me to live like I’m living. I’ve been away from you too long. I know I need to forgive, I need to let go of everything that holds me bound. I don’t want to die in my sins. I know I would be a prize for the devil if I did. You paid such a hefty price for me, I’m grateful, I’m sorry, fill me up again, give me strength again. I’ve avoided your power, and those that walk in it afraid I’ll be exposed! I’m walking out of this living hell. Jesus come into my life and take Lordship. I lay down pride, playing church, lying, being a deceiver. I’m coming to you in private to repent of falsehoods, and open rebellion. Willing to confess what needs to be confessed, and do what needs to be done, to get me out of this lie that’s been my life. I release all bitterness, and heart ache, and shame. I forgive all wrongs, because you forgave me, I must also. Wash me clean and fill me up Lord. I need you. In Jesus name, Amen.
Now walk away from the company of liars that made you comfortable in your churchianity. Supported you in your hypocritical religiosity. Find Jesus people, find the family of God, Jesus will point the WAY and the Holy Spirit will lead you Home.
Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people,
A leader and commander for the people.
Surely you shall call a nation you do not know,
And nations who do not know you shall run to you,
Because of the Lord your God,
And the Holy One of Israel;
For He has glorified you.”
Seek the Lord while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the Lord,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
“For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree,
And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree;
And it shall be to the Lord for a name,
For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
What happens when you build a house with out a foundation? Or with parts of the foundation missing? It’s less likely to withstand storms and remain intact for long. The house settles and flooring becomes uneven.
Recently, there has been a resurgence of deliverance ministry taking place across the country, and those that have had a solid foundation in that, have been bringing freedom to a lot of people in bondage. At the same time there has been some messes made that have needed cleaned up, and odd practices untangled out of the process. Some foolish trends are happening in camps where people think it’s ok to call a devil onto yourself to bear the burden of the deliverance, and to have long drawn out discussions with manifested demons for informational purposes. Forgetting that the devil is a liar and there is no truth in him. Jesus is our example, and he never called for a demon to jump on him in the process of a deliverance, to make it easy for the person to get free. That’s Hollywood stuff, and it’s also rooted in heathen practices. God’s power doesn’t require such a thing.
Another trend (oddly enough) is the belief that casting out devils are one’s graduation papers in ministry and the doctrine of Jesus Christ. When simply, it is a sign that follows them that believe in the power of His name, regardless of their knowledge or maturity. We still need to remember discipleship includes learning by example, few have been that example in this modern age. Jesus reminded the disciples not to be distracted over the fact, that they have power over devils, but that there name is written in the lamb’s book of life! Luke 10:20
He never called a demon on to himself, and he usually told them to be quiet or to stop when they cried out and manifested. I’ve had demons cry out at me, cuss at me, and chant in a false tongue, and everyone of them stopped when I told them too. We don’t need information from evil spirits, we don’t need entertained by them, and we certainly don’t need to be calling for them to channel through anyone. I really think error in this area has been because pastors (who have been given all the tools they could possibly need, to learn about deliverance ministry) stayed away from it all, and ignored something, that was a huge part of Jesus ministry whom He delegated to the Church, in no uncertain terms, in
In the 20th century God began to restore back to the church, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, in the power of His name. The Church began to see tongues, interpretation of tongues, and prophecy, come back in unprecedented ways. Healing and miracles, mantles and anointings, exploded on to the seen, and began to cover the globe with signs and wonders that displayed the power of God. At the same time the fivefold ministry spoken of in Ephesians 4, became more prominent in the earth to teach and equip the church on her authority in Jesus Christ, on a larger scale than ever before. “The complete gospel” schools were established in nations all over the world to raise up leaders in the body of Christ to keep apostolic works going. Many called these movements part of an outpouring of the latter rains! A deluge that serves the ripening stages of the end time harvest of souls. As the latter rains of summer supply needed water to the ripening stage of the ultimate harvest, so the last century has prepared us for the times we are living in now! In the 20th century, the teacher’s mantle (where all of the above, including deliverance ministry), were taught by some of the greatest Spirit filled teachers of our time. God established these in the body with revelation and understanding that brought back the power of God that operated in the first century church, in full form, to assist in this great latter day harvest. Much of what we walk in now, what we know now, came from these teachers of the 20th century, who had to pioneer through a forgotten landscape, and bring us back to where it all started. Of course that is never to say that there were not others before them, but it is to say that many answered the call, in the early 1900’s, just in time to carry believers through to the time of harvest where his WORD is manifesting in a powerful way, now.
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the Ancient way, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16
Even though God did an amazing thing by restoring (on a much larger scale than ever before) His giftings, mantles, and graces that we read about in the New Testament; still, many resisted it, and persecuted moves of God erupting from those out pourings. Some didn’t pay attention to the teaching ministries, in the area of deliverance, and later when more modern moves and out pourings took place, when demons manifested, in the presence of God’s glory and the power of His anointing, they didn’t cast them out! They even thought some demonic manifestations were the Holy Spirit! The movements became defiled, by neglect and ignorance. Those occurrences caused great divisions. Lately, with this new surge of deliverance ministry, finding its way through the ranks, young people are stepping up and this is great. However, I think that it is important to go back and visit where the road was paved in recent history, and make sure we don’t miss anything, and I’ll explain why.
We need to remember Christ is the Chief cornerstone forever, and what ever is restored back into the earth (because of neglect) must have its lines drawn and plumed by the WORD back to the WORD. If it’s involved with His ministry on this earth. One of the most amazing teachers of deliverance in the 20th century‘s surge of Holy Spirit ministry, was Dr. Lester Sumrall. He wasn’t the only one but he was the first to bring this practice back to the nations and into the churches all over the world, through his international teaching ministry called LeSEA. Lester Sumrall’s Evangelistic Association. If you are involved with deliverance ministry it would be extraordinary, that you wouldn’t know his name; nevertheless, more than likely if you had an influencer in your life that cast out devils, to fulfill that part of the great commission, that person or another who influenced them, was more than likely impacted by the ministry of Lester Sumrall. You know your authority in Christ, more than likely, by teachers that went back to the ancient path ways and revisited the first century church and its doctrine in the last century. Back to that great foundation and learned Christ ministry to bring it out of the religious haze of the dark ages and back to power. For the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the POWER of God unto salvation, and we actually had to go through a time in history where much of the church was apostate and the light of the true doctrine of Jesus Christ was almost extinguished, if such a thing was possible. However, the truth of His word, and the good news of the gospel, this great salvation wrought for us, was restored in such a powerful way that humanity was literally lifted out of the dark age, and reestablished into his glorious light! With the mass producing of the Geneva Bible, and later the King James Bible, millions of English speaking people began to have ownership of their own Bible. With the printing press translations of God’s Word began to go out into the nations. We were no longer bound in error, and the entanglements of heresy any more. This was a God thing, and it was done through Him.
Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 1 Corinthians 3:12-13
I believe that when ever a restorative work is established in the earth there is a grace upon it that enables that work to be in its purist form possible, and it is done though vessels that paid a costly price. If you go back and look at the laborers of the last few century’s amazing ministries that pioneered back along the ancient pathways, you will see great cost exacted upon them. We all should know church history. Many served well and finished well. If we know this and history has given us the benefit of knowing such things. Why will we not go to these restorative works in the earth given to us for such a time as now, to lay a better foundation for ourselves, as well? Yes of course we have the Bible, but we also have biblical commentary preserved for us, by those God used to re establish Kingdom principles that are relevant to our day. If we regard their spiritual grand children why then do we not regard the grandfather’s of that same faith? Remember, after every Apostolic work the next wave is to defile what God has wrought. I challenge all those that are jumping into the waves of glory, that are sure to be carried by the tides of change to remember the ancient paths, and honor them. I’m sorry my generation dropped the ball, I’m sorry the prophetic ministry in a lot of ways neglected it, and now there is some messy stuff that ought not to be. I felt to challenge everyone around me to learn about someone, that was another Paul in his time. Someone that finished the race well, and left behind a legacy that (like I said) many benefit even now, some not knowing who they are. We stand on the shoulders of those that have gone before us and when we acknowledge that, it’s an act of humility that will wash away the pride that will ruin us. In the past few years there has been gaps and holes people have fallen through in the area of casting out devils. I believe that if you go back and listen to the series of videos, from the stand point of what good thing you already know, and walk in, it will reinforce your standing and wash out any error. It will build your faith. The sad thing is though the way to return for a visit is marked out, many will not see the value to do so, as the scripture says in Jeremiah 6:16. But if you do, I believe a blessing of greater power and authority in Christ, will be the reward. After all no ministry of Christ belongs to any man that has executed it out of obedience, our work for Him is His. It’s not about a man or a woman. We need to acknowledge Christ’s ministry in the earth, that’s all. Enjoy this series of teaching’s posted below. I know it will bless you! In fact, God told me those who regard His teaching ministries, that He has ordained in the earth, will align themselves to level up for more, if they are good Bereans, as well! Acts 17:10-15
Lester Sumrall’s amazing life testimony.
Will You Also Go? The Great Falling Away!
Head Winds And Micro Bursts.
Let no one in any way deceive or entrap you, for that day will not come unless the apostasy comes first [that is, the great rebellion, the abandonment of the faith by professed Christians], and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction [the Antichrist, the one who is destined to be destroyed ..
2 Thessalonians 2:3 Amplified Bible.
Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the Life and no mans comes to the Father except through me.” We’ve got to remain in Christ, in order not to lose our way. So that we will not become among those of the great falling away. Proceeded by a condition of the heart, where the love of many will grow cold, hearts hardened like candle wax, when the flame goes out, because of lawlessness in the earth, that creates offense.
The Church is moving into a new landscape that has no mile posts, trails, or roads. Seasons in this place will come and go, where our ability to hear God will be paramount. It will only be found in prayer, brokenness, humility, and a determination to keep ourselves from defilement of the heart.
In your patience possess ye your souls. Luke 21:19
Is it a great astonishment that we are being tested like we are in the times we are in now? God has been warning, and preparing his church to not get offended. Look at the divisions we are facing, look at relationships being challenged. Who hasn’t personally felt the reproach and push back on the values we hold sacred, as Christians in America? How many of us have already suffered the sting of separation and broken fellowship over the climate that now exists in America that has polarized so many? Jesus cautioned His followers that if the world hated him, they will be hated, also. The Roman soldiers beat him, and made sport of Jesus, humiliating, and mocking him; his face bloodied unrecognizable. Tearing at his beard and clothes. It’s unbelievable that scenes like that would take place in the 21st century, as business, and home owners, have had to fight back mobs from their own lively hood, and family dwellings. So we have not become more civilized since Christ’s time. These were regular people being persecuted for having shops and homes.
Do you think it will not be the same for you, when a sudden shift takes place and the mob begins a wave of violence against men and women of faith, and their houses of prayer? The rhetoric is out there to gas light much unrest, beyond what has been suffered. Do we think that the lists they’ve been compiling using social media, will not give them specific targets? Where those under the power and the spirit of this age goes in as a flash mob, to burn, beat, moleste, and pillage, before help can even come? This is an operating system that exists against Christians in other lands. We’ve got hundreds of thousands, of people flooding our borders from all over the world that don’t understand American values, and many who do not want to embrace them. Think not that only in other countries this would happen. We are at the threshold of it becoming prevalent in America. That spirit has already become unleashed in our city streets, and it will not go away lightly. We’ve already seen a male street preacher become surrounded and sexually molested by a mob of men with the same message and chant that terrorized families as they walked through neighborhoods and surrounded homes. What story does that remind you of in Genesis? These are just a few of many astounding acts of the spirit of the age we are living in right now. Jesus said it would come, He also said that in the same day Lot and his family was taken out of Sodom, fire came down from heaven.
Beyond that will they not lie, and misrepresent you, oh child of God? The God of this world who has blinded their eyes, knows his time is short. Who we really belong to, truly, will come to light in these trying times. This is why this past year on our conference calls, in teaching ministry, we’ve been going over the scriptures to learn how (in patience) we possess our souls. To stand for righteousness sake, in right standing. Not to act out of anger, bitterness, resentment, pride or fear. When we step back from yielding to the inner processes of the Holy Spirit, or abandon our post, because we hit a stumbling block on our way, we begin to do exactly what the enemy calculated we would do. We allow those strong negative emotions to begin to be a driving force in our lives. Rather, than love and forgiveness, that will keep us steady on the Kingdom Highway. To think many have already entered the corridors of apostasy by loving and believing a lie so early in the wake of these times, reveal the shallow roots of understanding, what being a Christian really is. It means to be as He is. To love not our lives even to death.
I promise you the road to Zion is never easy but the destination is worth it! Psalm 84:5-7 “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca [tears], they make it a spring; [their faith and endurance draws provision for those behind them] the rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; every one of them [in that pilgrimage of faith, they] appear before God in Zion.” Every quest begins with excitement and fanfare, but the journey isn’t with out its challenges.
We are moving towards the Church’s most glorious hour. We don’t want to be sidelined over well designed stumbling blocks in our life. Strong negative emotions are INDICATORS of an inward struggle that we need to bring to light before Christ.
Emotional indicators, recognized and addressed, are better than ignoring them and then eventually giving yourself over to them to the point our conscience becomes seared..
I was on a flight a few years ago, that seemed to be delayed in the take-off. Finally the captain got on the mic and said, “Ladies and Gentlemen we are waiting for a technician to come and check something out, it seems that an indicator is indicating an indication.” My strong feeling at that time was ‘I’m getting off this plane! But, this story is a great example as to why we need to check ourselves when an emotional INDICATOR springs up, that needs a technical examination. So our interactions and outlooks will not be marred by the flesh, because we’ve begun to operate in the soulish realm, based on feelings and offense. We do this by unpacking (before the Lord) anger, suspicion, jealousy, pride, or any other kind of thing that flares up, because letting these feelings go unchecked will begin to, ultimately, delay the take-offs and arrivals in Kingdom destinations. Nothing does that more quickly and more prominently than looking at others to fix what we need to fix ourselves. The spirit of the age will separate us from one another if we let it. CUTTING ourselves off from the Body He has placed us to be in (however that may look) is a major INDICATOR, that something is wrong! When we divorce ourselves from the body and abandon it, we separate ourselves from the head! We can’t help it when people cut themselves off and refuse to talk about what is troubling them. We cannot stop people from deciding to go to others, and everyone else, before they come to you over there offense. However, we can teach the Body of Christ the way it should be done.
The first line of defense in guarding our hearts is realizing that love is not easily offended but covers a multitude of sins. Pursue love, look past the short comings of others because we have them ourselves. Forgive easily. Nevertheless, where there is corruption, where there is sin that could potentially defile the body of Christ, and lead people astray or harm them, and bring shame to Christ, we need to address it. But it needs to be done right
Matthew 18:15-17 (ESV) “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
As a tax collector or gentile simply means, you don’t mingle with them, or let them in your inner circle, respectfully. They are as an outsider to you, because they refused to respond. There are other scriptures that tell us to mark those that bring division among us and how to treat an apostate or fornicator.
What can I do to examine my own motives and standing right now?
Look at your heart, think of people, think of politicians, think of all the people you feel very strong emotions over, in this season we are in right now. SEE if dislike, disdain, and most seriously, hatred for them, is finding a place to dwell in your heart. SEE if you are holding such anger against them YOU want to get justice and get even with them, and you want it now. To the point you have become a slanderer. Do you see that in there? Why do you have this uncontrollable anger, or feeling of helplessness, that has turned into depression robbing you of peace? We have all had measures of it, individually, that we’ve needed to resolve. Everyone of us. The reason we get stuck is because (deep down inside) we believe God isn’t really going to work it out for us. Is not really going to come through with righteousness, justice, and truth. There you have it, a spirit of doubt and unbelief ruling in our hearts! I’m talking to God’s people here, that are struggling with strong emotions in regard to what has happened during this pandemic and political season. When we know our God reigns we wait for Him, no matter how long it takes for Him to come. That is faith, that is the patience of the saints. Take note: how often do you think or say that you hate certain people every day? Even if it’s just a bad habit you have in regard to people you don’t like. Jesus said if you hate someone you have murder in you. Scripture says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks! Did you know that you can be free from hating other human beings, even really bad ones? That the more evil they are the greater groan in your heart you could have for their souls? Rather than hate, these times can produce in you a greater passion for the lost. A burden for their eternal destination! It is possible not to come into an agreement with the spirit of this age, as brute beasts, and murderers. Hate kills.
That is what it feels like to have your heart of stone replaced by the living God who gives you one that feels again. Forgiveness, begins that process. We need to understand that hate has no place in a new creation’s heart. In Christ we should become a new man or woman, boy or girl. Confessing our hate, jealousy, and bitter rage, when it rises up, because it is the only way we can begin to eradicate the roots of it out of our lives. It may be just a twitch of a thought or feeling, but really you can follow that smoke down to the fire and quench out that inordinate affection, by just dealing with what kind of ugly surfaced in your mind, and measures you took because of a strong opinion you had that was not Christ centered. Confess it and let Jesus wash it away. Based on truth or lies the Holy Spirit, will do a work. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; Who can know it? All of us will have to respond to un sanctified anger, in our hearts at some time or another. Keeping our selves in check always. Certainly, in the times we are living in now. Ask ourselves this question, did I break fellowship with brothers and sister in the Lord, my fellowship, that I was nurtured in until this politically charged season came along? If so we need to examine why we felt the need to leave. Is this a stand against false brethren? Wolves in sheep’s clothing? Did you overlook bad fruit? Or maybe, just maybe, an inordinate affection, strung you out, based on cultural or social allegiances, rather than the word of God.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
We need to recognize our inability and weakness to control everything around us, as well. Being honest with God. Working on being genuine with Him and others, everyday all day long if that is what takes, diligently seeking Him in the process. Because strong negative emotions are indicators we have a need to pray. There is a built in mechanism, designed by God, we often ignore called self control, that our will activates, so that we will not act on our anger or rage. That is one of the fruits of the spirit we must possess in order to have good fruit. By their fruits you will KNOW them. When we have violated that inner voice to stop, over and over again, we are eventually given over to another spirit, that will enter into an agreement with the prince and power of the air. In these end times even people that call themselves Christians will fall in line with another spirit, that they will not recognize they are acting in. They will move in and out of it in shades of light and lesser light. Until, they get acclimated back into the darkness they had once come out of. That’s right! That is how becoming a backslider begins to happen! So watch for that subtle reconditioning of the heart to persuade you back into what Christ has brought you out of. Anarchy of heart produces Anarchy of soul. Guess who the greatest ANARCHIST was that ever existed? That is right. The lawless one and he is still at it this very hour. His Children murder the innocent, because He was a murder and a liar from the very beginning. Killing comes in many forms, that includes the assassination of someone’s character, by talebearing, and stolen narratives. We know Satan and his army are on the move because a silent holocaust is leaving a trail of death in His wake, through out the earth. As lawlessness in the form of the murder of pre-born children. Think it not strange that for millions of young people, the gangster life and music is an idol, and has been glorified in movies and music now for close to four generations. This a celebration of violence and lawlessness, and Christians think it’s alright to hang on to that culture after being saved and my question is how? When Paul said, “Be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind!“
As there are those God has raised up for such a time as now, there are those preconditioned by the power of darkness to fall into a state of lawlessness, as well. The American music industry has been seeding the world with music and images of a lifestyle glorifying violence and anarchy for a long time. Do you not think there will be a harvest of kind? Even the church has been complicit. Jesus spoke to His disciples and said, “You know not what spirit You are of!” So we should not think we are above listening to the wrong voice. Showing grace towards those that sometimes do, we should (think not) that WE stand, lest we fall. We are all trying to work this thing out right now. A landscape untraveled, of seasons unknown. A climate of uncertainty. That’s why we should never glory in our own understanding but seek the mind of Christ, always. Adhere to the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ who taught us how to live and walk in love. When the Church overcomes the spirit of self seeking, self pity, self promotion, self reliance, and self importance, in order to discover God’s will, God’s words, and His works. Than we can trust ourselves to deliver His mandates, unashamed, and with out apology. No matter how controversial they are. Keeping our hearts pure and our hands clean, so that we can go to battle with clarity, and fight the good fight of faith that lies before us, as warriors of Light.
1 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Acts 26:17 .. now I send you, to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by FAITH in Me.’
A companion teaching to this article is on a podcast below, that takes us to the next level. How we will live and thrive through days of uncertainty. With Jesus!
“Where I Go, You Know.”
The Idol Called Opinion
We had a great time on a Zoom call, the night before the morning that I woke up with this word – written in italics below. But, first I want to share a little about what it stems from; we were talking about Paul’s work in Ephesus. How his synagogue visits went as usual, some argued some received. But then after a while, according to Acts 19, those that seemed to have been receiving, started hardening their hearts again, towards his message. To the point Paul threw his hands up in the air and walked away! Taking twelve disciple’s with him that got filled with the Holy Spirit, through his ministry. It’s not an unusual happening, people receive the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, at first with joy; but inevitably, pride will be exposed and we’re faced with a choice, do we repent and move on? Or, do we cycle back around through the wilderness again, one more time? Never quite arriving to the destination we know is out there for us because we keep stumbling over our own hard headedness just before getting there. For some, this is a reality that has lasted for decades in their life. Like the children of Israel (in the wilderness) a whole generation fell short of the promise land because of their obstinate spirit. After that Zoom call that went late, the very next morning I woke up seeing a swirling vortex of letters as I was coming out of a dream, forming words, that came into my understanding as I spoke them out of my mouth. Still groggy, I wrote them down. When I was finished I was amazed how it even seemed to rhyme. I don’t think a prophetic word has ever come that easy. But this is a hard word! Like honey in the mouth, so sweet, but bitter in the belly. Oh, God this is a hard word! Triggered by reading Acts 19. We seriously need to step back and look at how we stop moving forward in this walk with the Lord, repent and start hating the things he hates. A proud look, a lying tongue. Obstinance, is an objection that we can’t get past often because we’re not going to agree with something that demands us to renounce pet beliefs that have nothing to do with the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus told the Rabbi’s your “traditions” make the word of God of no effect! Splitting hairs over issues of the Law. Endless genealogies, fables and unsubstantiated histories. Theological questions, and emphases on scripture that are sort of right and sort of wrong, that we’ve made an unreasonable stance on. That has more to do with error than truth, but we refuse to back down! Or maybe it’s just pet sins we do not want to let go of, or maybe we just have a hard time with God ordained authority. What ever it is when we’ve got that kind of thing happening to us, where we are being challenged, and some how we find our nose bent out of shape, these are not the days to become insolent! We don’t have time to mess around.
Moving Past Obstacles of The Heart.
It was something in the preaching, something in the teaching, it was a word in the counseling you didn’t want to hear. It touched on something no one likes to see. You were growing, you were blessed, things were changing in your life, and you finally were making strides. The promise land for you, began to come into view. But now you’re at an impasse with God. The cycle of failure is standing at the door. He touched on a thing that took you to your core. Your open hand is now a fist, you’re not moving any more. Pride has to bow, but you wouldn’t bend, an idol (called your opinion) is in charge again.
Acts 19:8 And he [Paul] went into the synagogue [in Ephesus] and for three months spoke boldly, reasoning, arguing, and PERSUADING them about the kingdom of God. But when some were becoming hardened and disobedient [to the word of God], discrediting and speaking evil of the Way, before the congregation, Paul left them, and took [12 newly baptized in the Spirit] disciples with him …
1 Samual 22-23 To obey is better than sacrifice to heed than the fat of rams.
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft,
And stubbornness is an iniquity as the sin of idolatry.
Revelation 2 Ephesus Repent, return to your first love. Do the works you did at first.
Lord Jesus make us more like you, remove it to the core, resistance standing at the door, that blocks my new day! I lay down my old man. My old ways, and breathe in Christ anew! In Jesus name I pray amen!
Canceling Christ is Canceling History.
A back to school special! The libraries of the world cannot contain all he did and said, because why? He’s still doing and saying even right now. Jesus lives! Deana shares a bit of information that has been left out of our educational systems on purpose for decades. The fact that Jesus was a real person is not a matter of faith. It’s a matter of fact. Yet, some college age students describe him as a fictional character, and the Bible a fictional book. How can that be? In this podcast a few simple facts that every 5th grader should know about Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and the book that foretold of His life, death, and resurrection, centuries before Jesus was born.

Love, Of The Valiant Kind
What is love? Love lays it down. What is love? It has no bounds. What is love? It’ll go another round ..
What is love?
Love is a passion, a power, a wave. Stronger than hate it will go to the grave-
To find you.
Love will reach down to hells fiery depth, will give itself till’ nothing is left.
It will beat off the flame that scars the hand; takes the blame that hangs a man-
It’ll do what it takes to pay the price, love is kind but it’s not so nice.
Love will war when it has to fight, to free the beloved if it takes all night … Love will cross the enemy’s line, to bring back home what fell behind.
What is love?
Love is not for the faint of heart. Its companion, courage, runs to the fray- It is always love that saves the day!
What is love? The beam and nail.
What is love? It never fails.
What is love? It Endures travail.
What is love? What could it be more? Love is gentle, yet goes to war.

Train My Hands For War.
In this amazing time that we are in right now my first thoughts are that we’ve got to KEEP going! This is not the time to lose our standing. Don’t get confused, don’t lose your equilibrium! Keep your post. Don’t get offended. Set your sights on those things that are above, not below. Think upon those things that are true and of a good and lovely report, cast down the enemy’s lies! Keeping our profession of faith. Don’t be a sell out. Jesus is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. Having done all we stand.
Blessed be the Lord my ROCK, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle! Psalm 144:1. In this podcast Deana talks about the sights and sounds of intense spiritual warfare.
Do Christians Need To Fear Kundalini Possession?
Do Christians need to be afraid of what is being called a Kundalini possession? Many people have become fearful of receiving a false Holy Spirit. Clearly if you are interacting with members of the occult: Psychics, mediums, mentalists, and palm readers, that would be a real concern. But, can Christians seeking the Holy Spirit in a Christian meeting receive a false spirit? Also, what about when some one is prayed for and they fall down and shake or jerk, is that a sign that they have received a false spirit? In this podcast David and Deana addresses those questions in: The Kingdom Divided.
Don’t Hang Up On Me
Some people are not going to love this message but it needs to be heard. I’ve been around a lot of different kinds of Christians in my life, that seem to fall in one of two different catagories. Haze and clarity. The haze catagory comes from living in a life of constant compromise. Some because it’s all around them and they just have to deal with it, and others because they choose to live in mixture, and don’t intend to change. The difference between those two is transparency. The one that hurts and aches for clarity emits it. The other compartmentalizes their life of mixture and because of that is never transparent. You always know something else is going on and there just seems to be a haze, about them. Things that are simply unclear. Some where in the ambience of their world is a culture of accepted compromise. The other camp is clarity. Nothing is really that hard to connect with, and there is far less instances of confusion about them. Being on the same page is easy because they walk in the simplicity of God’s word. If something is off track in their private life they are transparent about it; love, joy, peace and their trust in God disperses the haze even if it’s their unfortunate situation that they live where mixture rules the religious roost, where they come from. I’ve seen this demonstrated over and over again in a time where the whirl winds of 2020 have left an invisible haze everywhere we go, but then joining with those of the Camp of Clarity, things become so very clear. Because clarity of heart is what brought them together. A place of no compromise. These understand this message, no matter what generation they belong to, young, old, gender, or race. There are certain fundamentals of the Christian walk we understand with great clarity in these modern times. We have a rod in this generation that seperate the sheep from the goats. It makes it very easy to know where to stand in troubled times like this- the only thing that could possibly make what I talk about in this podcast unclear is deception or a heart of rebellion. If after listening to this podcast it’s still not made clear to you, than mixture is not just where you live. But where you choose to stay. Coming into a place of clarity requires heart felt repentance. That’s it, that’s all. No matter how much we have compromised and made a lie out of our lives, God is a merciful God who loves us, and wants us to return to Him.
Dreams Of Pharaohs And Kings
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I set you apart and appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
In this article I’m going to talk about prophetic dreams and visions we sometimes have of dignitaries and world events. What they mean and what we need to do with them. Starting off with some of my own experiences over the years and referring to them as examples. I believe that when you finish this article you will have more understanding to walk in your prophetic gift, in the area of dreams and visions, on a national and international scale. Even if you’ve never had a dream about President Trump, or another head of nations, the information is transferable, to other people of governing authority in your life.
God often uses our prophetic experiences to reach the lost, and change the course of lives. We can be His instruments in doing that by understanding the biblical gift of prophecy, developing skill by use, and the experiences others have had. It takes a company of prophets to raise well rounded prophets. Because iron sharpens iron, we need a prophetic presbytery among us for guidance, to help sort through the supernatural manifestations that come with believing in a supernatural God, who empowers our natural lives. A prophetic presbytery simply means a body of elders tried and tested in their walk with God, and can council on various modes of operation and application of the five anointings mention in Ephesians 4:11, to raise another generation up to fill the shoes that have come before them. He that regards a prophet in the name of a prophet receives the prophet’s reward. The same is true when encountering this age of prophetic out pouring upon the people of God. What efforts we take to receive of that treasure determines our development. Incredible as it seems, too many churches still don’t understand how to regard the giftings and anointings that God has set in His Church, in order for them to receive blessing in their lives. For as softly as the dove lands, so He lifts. We have rejected Christ’s ministry often, not recognizing the Lord’s visitations and answered prayer, when He as come manifesting through the various giftings and ministries he has set in the church. Because there are still many among the greater population of believers that lack teaching on how to properly respond to the gifts, and anointings, God has ordained in the church. There to equip them. A close study of Ephesians 4, gives us the blue print of what a real lamp stand host should look like.
Eph 4:11-16 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
Many believers are not prophet ready. Assemblies that don’t have them, yet call themselves a bonafide lampstand assembly, can easily be upset and even turned upside down, being visited by any one of those anointings, of the above mentioned five of Ephesians 4:11. That God has ordained to operate in the Church, on purpose; to bring growth, maturity, and edification. Simply, a revival is often just God setting His house in order with an apostolic wave in an anointed visitation. To set, and establish His order, where the anointings that he has raised up in service to the saints are activated and are “set” properly where they belong. We need this particular order among his people these days now, more so than ever before. The first century church was built upon the power of God that had nothing to do with the ability of man. So why do we still need this same grace and ability of God from heaven? Because we are in the last of the last days, the latest of the latter rains, for the end time harvest. Joel chapter 2! An amazing time to be alive! God is still pouring out His spirit on our sons and daughters, as not only old men are having dreams, and young men are having visions, but every age and gender in between.
If you follow this blog, you know that I call it a dream journal website. Most of the articles are derived from prophetic dreams and visions. When I began to pen these encounters the Lord said, “Teach others as you go.” So I try to reveal the prophetic process along with the actual dream and “word of the Lord” hidden in the mystery that dreams and visions often are.
The prophet that has a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that has my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? said the LORD.”
A dream that comes from the Lord is a carrier of a mystery, like the wheat stock is a carrier to a kernel of grain. It needs the entire mechanism of the wheat stalk to produce the grain inside of it; however, wheat needs a process to thresh it out and that is a learned skill. A dream with out a message is like straw in the wind. Any one can have a dream, but not everyone can unlock its mystery. It takes a spirit of wisdom and understanding to interpret dreams. While symbolism may be recognized to piece a dream’s meaning together- only the creator God can disclose its full intent and application, and He does that by the gifts of the Spirit, through His spirit filled believers. Pharaoh had a dream in the book of Genesis, but it took God’s servant, Joseph, to not only unlock its meaning but to provide the wisdom needed to walk out the word of warning it entailed. Joseph no doubt had an excellent spirit about him, as Daniel did. Now, among some prophetic circles a warning dream is declared as not from God, because it’s not pleasant. Their argument is that it doesn’t edify. The prophet Agabus in the New Testament, has even been called a ”mistaken” prophet who prophesied famine and the Apostle Paul’s bonds in Rome. But this isn’t supported by scripture because the Apostles and elders of the church responded to the warnings of the prophet Agabus. Whom tradition says was probably one among the 70 that was sent out by Jesus. This recognized prophet prophesied a troubling prophecy on both occasions, so it sort of ruins the narrative that all prophecy should be charming. But that’s the point, we are not called to CHARM any one. The testimony of Jesus Christ is the Spirit of Prophecy. In some of these more extreme camps of the prophetic, God’s warning system has been neutralized. We just have to look at the seven Churches in Asia, that Jesus told John to write to, in prophetic warning, to know that a prophecy, a message from God, has the power to shake you. The Testimony of Jesus Christ has caused many to be shaken, as it has caused many to rejoice. Some even teach that warning dreams are not from God, and while it is possible that a dream may have not been handled properly, inducing fear not hope, hopelessness, and not fervent prayer, we cannot disregard the purpose for them. In scripture the famine prophecy was taken to heart and the Saints made preparations for the famine. This is why we need a prophetic presbytery among the assembly of saints to process revelations and mysteries of God that pertain to the greater body of believers; because, there is safety among many counselors. Lack of this kind of safety net is the reason why many who have had powerful dreams of international importance, never see the light of day. Mostly because they don’t take the dream before the Lord for understanding. It’s just an interesting dream to them, and they leave it at that. For one, the kernel is not being processed out of the chaff, so its lost in the mystery that it is, and sharing it with out its interpretation, with out its prophetic run through, by a company of prophetic believers, sometimes is more harmful than good. When leaving it in its unprocessed form. Because some dreams that involve people we know may convey a message unintended. However, if it is processed through- than the word of the Lord is threshed out of it, having substance and continuity. In that form it is useful. At that point what needs to be done with it, (publicly or privately) is better Discerned. I have a couple hundred articles on this website. I may have a half baked idea or two. But it has always been my intent to make sure that prophetic dreams were not shared, until they had their time at the threshing floor of prophetic process.
1 Corinthians 14:29-30 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge. But if anything is revealed to another who sits by, let the first keep silent.
Proverbs 15:22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety.
Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war…
We can do nothing of ourselves it takes the gifts of the Spirit including wisdom to know how to separate the chaff from the wheat, and pull out the oracles of God, for the sole purpose to extend life not prophesy its demise. To build a wall of protection not tear them down. As Joseph was in charge of building grain silos to prepare for famine, so God’s people should have the ability to be the answer in days of distress for the nations as long as we are here. There are many occasions in the Bible where the Lord uses dreams, visions, and prophecy, to save lives not condemn them. Even in Job it is written that he terrifies us with dreams to keep us from the pit! The word of the Lord is needed in these times, to be more than just an encouraging word. His word needs released by his servants, his hand maidens, the Saints of the Living God to plant the heavens and to seed the earth with His word!
A Word About Sensory Over Load. Keeping the slate of your mind set apart.
As dreamers, seers, and prophets, it’s important that we keep pure that place where holy imagery is displayed in the spirit of the mind. In other words, too much exposure to fantasy, books, movies, games, or media imagery that is fantastic by nature, can create a life of its own in this world of sensational visual access. This is why, we ourselves, need to fast, like Jesus did, and go away into a quiet place to really hear and see clearly from God. I’m hesitant with prophetic encounters that come from people that seemed supercharged on mass media over load. That are avid gamers and fantasy story buffs. In the same way we should be mindful that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, that gifts of the spirit operate through this temple; so we should set ourselves wholly apart from too much of anything when it comes to our mind, as well as our body. When I know there is a chance that I might be ministering through the word or by the gifts of the Holy Spirit, I fast prior meals and refrain from sugar or coffee, that may cause my mind to race or my body to crash on a sugar high during a time when I’m really trying to settle in God’s presence and hear his voice.
This is why I believe that fasting and prayer together, positions us to hear from HIM more clearly, with greater prophetic accuracy. For decades I’ve assembled with the saints on this principle of pre-meeting fasting. On the rare occasion that I’ve had coffee or a meal, I’ve always regretted it. You don’t know the difference until you’ve made it a practice for yourself, for enough time to know the difference. This is just a suggestion, and of course we’re called to peace and liberty. I don’t see where Jesus commanded the disciples to fast, but He did say to them: “These kind don’t come out, but by fasting and by prayer.” So to me it’s like this, extraordinary encounters often follow after extraordinary preparation and readiness.
Notice how all new beginnings start with a work that roots out old systems in order to install new ones? All new beginnings must start out by rooting up and tearing down, before we can begin to plant and build. Why would we have to do that? It’s required in order to establish any new work. Old religious root systems are a hindrance to kingdom life! This Kind of activity that pulls things out of us in order to establish renewal is in preparation to make way for the work of Lord, in the spirit of Elijah for His second coming, as the spirit of Elijah rested upon John in Jesus’s first coming. People say, “But this is a time of great persecution!” As if that is going to slow the process down. When did persecution or even martyrdom ever stop the kingdom of God from being established? In fact according to my bible it actually accelerates its advancement.
Jeremiah 1:9-11 the LORD reached out His hand, touched my mouth, and said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have appointed you today over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and plant.”
Isaiah 51:16 And I have put my words in your mouth, and I have covered you in the shadow of my hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, You are my people.
–Is not my word as a fire? said the LORD; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:28
Is that hammer and fire retired now? Jesus’s words in the book of Revelation still are relevant to day. He’s coming back to destroy those waging war against Him with the WORDS of His mouth!
What does it mean to dream about pharaohs and kings, presidents, or dignitaries?
These kind of dreams can have a personal application that is more about the dreamer and their life, that carries a message to the dreamer for themselves, or it can have a broader application, that has a national or worldwide significance. When we are interacting with dignitaries in our dreams, often the location of that interaction reveals the scope of its relevancy to us and others. So when we dream, if our encounters with them are in our home, our car, our town, or in our schools; than that usually sets the parameter or range of the dream’s application. Where that governmental authority or position may have impact in the life of the dreamer. It’s not uncommon for those diligent to pray for the nations to have heads of state appear to them in dreams, often revealing their prayer needs. When this happens we usually dream of them talking to us in their environment, or in places their policies will impact. Their prayer needs are with in the scope of what they discuss, show you, or things that are seen in the dream. For example I remember one dream I interpreted where a dignitary was pointing to his heart. Of course that would be the Holy Spirit prompting prayer for that individual and the condition of their heart. How do we know a dream has international significance? Often we can tell the impact of the dream by the surroundings. These type of dreams often put the dreamer on location. In a senate chamber, at the White House, in Washington DC., at the House of Commons; in the palaces of Kings, or on battle grounds, mostly visiting them in their environment. Or, upon a world or historical stage. Many have seen president Trump in stadiums, and on athletic fields. I would say these dreams speak to the great contest he has been in, against unrelenting contestants. We may meet or witness kings, queens, emperors, tyrants, and prime ministers; over cities, lands, mountains, and seas; that we may prophecy regarding them over peoples, nations, and tongues, the decrees of God, and declare to them the burden of the Lord.
For one example I saw Putin and the Russian army in a tornado heading toward Syria before they engaged in the conflict there. I talk about tornados and their meanings in another article called: What Tornados mean in dreams. This was definitely one of international importance, and it was while we were engaged in prayer for the middle east. At the same time I saw the Russian church released upon the world stage having great impact beyond Russia, but more importantly among the Russian people.
Understanding the purpose of disclosure and its scope of relevancy is the key to understanding our role and influence as the church, when it comes to national and international events. Acts 21:12 regarding the Agabus prophecy of famine, is a blue print of how we should react as a church to these revealed events. Beginning with a council of leaders, to examine natural responses to the church in those places where God reveals events to come, whether they are revivals, wars, famines, or natural disasters. This is where the church has often failed, it’s not enough to just know by the Spirit, what others couldn’t possibly know. It’s to seek the mind of Christ to know what to do about it. Pray, fast, gather, give, or go?
Mandates and Assignments announced in dreams.
For example on election night in 2008, I dreamed that I was in the White House answering the front door. When I opened the door the presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama, his wife Michele, and their two daughters, were standing at the entrance door. This is how I learned that he had won the 2008 election, even though we went to bed early the night before, believing that John McCain would probably become number 44. The Lord spoke to me in that dream saying, ”The people’s house will accommodate them here, you will intercede for him.” There after I was given specific detail regarding prayer responsibilities for Obama and his administration. The first time I ever visited Washington DC., was during the Obama administration, on a prophetic prayer tour. We had many encounters during that time, that had prophetic significance. This dream was a sign for me to know that I was being commissioned by God for the task. The only person I had time to tell who was voted in as president, was my husband. I went down stairs before he had turned the radio on and told him Senator Obama, was voted in as our president. Even though early in the night McCain was projected to win in South Carolina, and that’s what we went to sleep on. In that dream my position was a servant at the door. The point of the dream was to reveal a prayer mandate that would last 8 years. The sign that accompanied that was the revelation that he had won the election through a dream. Only to be renewed again by another dream two weeks before Obama’s second election, that announced a second term, four years later.
I will confirm my word with signs and wonders following. Mark 16:20, Hebrews 2:4.
The first dream was given to me to know I was under a new prayer mandate, that took me out of my world as I knew it, and into a new commissioning. I began to have more dreams and visions of international events. Seeing the President and his family in the White House was a sign. A few days after that another dream brought me to the newly elected president’s inaugeration, where prayer mandates began to reveal themselves. There I saw the Clintons on Obama’s inaugural platform, joining him in his duties, and with them I saw baggage. This was before he announced Hillary would become the Secretary of State. Behind the scenes the dream revealed many lining up in the entertainment world to receive favors. I also saw an unruly perverse spirit manifesting through a child, that tragically appeared to be sexualized at an early age. This display was very unsettling to me, in the dream, and thank God only the PG version of what we now know exists, was being referenced. Still, for a long time I couldn’t believe that- that part of the dream was really telling me what it seemed to be saying. Until pedo-gate was exposed. With out question, this abomination of an association with child sexual abuse, was firmly attached to the Clintons, as they seemed to have introduced it to the platform they all now stood on. Regardless of what people think of Michele or even believe about her. In the dream she privately expressed disdain for the Clintons and what they brought with them. I saw activity in the back stage depicting what would come the days after, when Obama began handing out freedom metals. What was exposed in this dream would have national ramifications, of which we are only beginning to understand now. On October 17th, 2012, in another dream, President Obama took me up to a mountain peak on the presidential helicopter, and we landed on a mountain peak. He showed me the bald eagle. As I watched him pointing to the eagle it landed beside him on a tree snag standing 6 feet tall next to the president. The American symbol of the bald eagle then molted into the image and form of the president, until there was only one of them standing there. He then wanted to take me to a second mountain top that I could see from the first. But this mountain top was in the middle east. I didn’t want to go there. He got on the helicopter and I watched him fly to a high place and land on a peak east of Medina. I saw the whole map of the middle east like a decopage with events that was on display, that would later become history. One of which was Syria bleeding beyond borders like watercolors in fiery red and orange. I saw Obama in his second term become a lame duck president to the Saudis. I understood at the time the bald eagle, transforming into Obama, was the American nation fully transformed into the Obama Nation now, in our foreign policy, and would be firmly landing there in a second term. Naturally, when I woke up I knew then that Mitt Romney would lose the election, whom I encountered a year before, as he registered for the New Hampshire primaries, with Governor Sununu’s endorsement. Those 8 years after that first dream were extraordinary for me afterward. Because of the commissioning to pray for this president, it felt that my normal life as I knew it was on hold. Prayer, ministry, dreams, intercession, even traveling, brought me into spiritual encounters that were of national value. One of these events of national significance, occurred right after I had just told my tour companion that I was out of public ministry after years of being in it. Living a life of prayer and writing. No sooner do I peep out those words, do I find my self on the streets of Albany New York preaching in front of the state house with a news camera in my face, during an “Occupy Wall Street” rally, and then in New Hampshire standing right next to Mitt Romney, and Governor Sununu, as that photo op goes all over the world on CNN. I literally let the Governor stand in my place so I wouldn’t be sandwiched between them, as news people moved in. I had people looking at me trying to figure out who I was. How I got in that room with statesman, family, and friends of this candidate who was registering for the highest political position in the world, with what they called Sununu’s “Holy Grail endorsement”
Seers In Their Seasons Of Suddenlies.
That event started in the early morning hours on the same day, when the spirit of the Lord walked me down that same hall we congregated in, in a dream. I would call it more like a sleeping vision. The Lord told me to wear a dress and nice shoes, to do my hair and make up for that day because we were dressing comfortable, like tourists, during most of our travels. Again that dream took me out of my environment and put me right in the place I would be, just hours later having this encounter. I decreed protection over him, and prayers for his family, as I was placed immediately behind the Governor for several minutes, as we walked down the crowded corridor, with Romney in front and his son Tagg behind me. While secretaries and statesman filed out of their offices to greet him, and sheriff’s deputies flanked him on each side, we pushed on to the office where Mitt Romney signed the papers. While others were left at the door I was ushered in to the room. Later, I asked the Lord what all this meant and He said that I represented (in proxy) a commissioning to the Church. Saying, ”I want all my prophets this close to these positions in the land.” The dream that Obama would go a second term was in a time where many were prophesying Obama would not be elected a again. Early in Obama’s administration I had an unusual encounter while in prayer that I won’t talk about here, but it is written in an article called The Trump Paradigm.
After my dream of Obama’s second term, I remember reflecting back on how much I actually liked Mitt and Tagg Romney, yet in the middle of that reflection I had a mini vision of the two of them. Their countenance shifted and they both looked like those cartoon characters called angry birds walking out a door, and looking back on a scene behind me. I’m not kidding you. I was taken back, and wondered what that meant. Four years later Romney resurfaced, and I couldn’t get that vision out of my mind. Something got a hold of him. He never seemed the same to me, that I thought I had originally discerned. I remember though an assumption I had, and I’m glad I didn’t act on it. The encounter I had regarding him was powerful in prophetic detail. I quietly carried an assumption that whole year that he would be elected into office. The only reason I didn’t say a word is because God never confirmed it to me. I wrote about the entire tour, and that encounter but never had the unction of the Holy Spirit to speak it out loud that I thought he would be elected. That’s what we have got to be careful not to do, allow are assumptions to over ride the unction of the Holy Ghost. Its an easy line to cross sometimes. Too easy if you ask me. That is why we need to fervently pray for one another. Not be so quick to judge. Or run and call someone a false prophet that has never taught heresy, or neglected to display good fruit in their lives. There is plenty to learn in family discussions and we need to have more of them. Many who operate in profound giftings suffer in profound warfare. Many Christians are not taught the fundamentals in receiving Holy Spirit ministry.
Both these prophetic dreams took me out of my world to see national and international events to come. While we can have visions of international importance from where ever we stand. We are still seeing and interacting beyond where we are at. In the seer anointing. In that case the dream or vision clearly goes beyond are world, taking the significance of the dream and its interpretation outside of personal application.
Where our dreams are staged often give us a clue to their scope of relevance to the dreamer. Especially when it includes a known event or time line to come. The following is an example of an event that became an historical reality, but was a personalized warning for my husband and I regarding financial burdens that could be induced by taxation. In 2010 I had a vision of south American children pouring into my yard out of the woods. I saw a woman from the same place hold up her children and call to us to care for them. In the same dream I saw an elder Afganistanian man and woman sitting on our floor in our kitchen eating out of our refrigerator. These were all depicting national, and foreign policies, that could directly impact my husband and I as tax paying American citizens. You see how the world events came to us, symbolizing there effect in our lives. The dream both revealed what would become historical realities of American life, and its personal impact to the dreamer. Not to mention the plight of those depicted in the dream. Why do we have these dreams? God doesn’t give us prophetic dreams of international importance to flex our prophetic muscle and prowess. Nor does He do it to fast track our ministries into world recognition. In fact the most profoundly accurate prophets that I’ve encountered are not even well known. One that I know I don’t think has ever even stood behind a pulpit, nor have they traveled more than a day’s distance from their own home. Nevertheless, some people whose names you might know, know them simply as God’s intercessor. There are men and women, even boys and girls through out the nations of the earth, living in obedience to the father in the face of death everyday, having profound encounters, angelic visitations, as servants, as apostles, and prophets; or simply known as pastors. Working so very hard with very little, yet performing great demonstrations of the power of God, that we will never see in our abundance. Things they see everyday, because of their great need. These quietly walking in authority over realms and regions untold. The only alliance in the world that they are a part of is with God and the angels of heaven that serve his or her prayers.
For us to NOT pray and stand in the gap for all that God shows us, in the spirit, is to miss use our equipment for battle. As Abraham was a friend of God, so those that the Lord confides in regarding mysteries, happenings, and world events, are entrusted with the responsibility to pray. To stand in the gap, as Abraham stood in the gap and prayed, when God revealed the destruction soon to come to Sodom and Gomorrah. Why? Because God wills that no man perish, but that all will come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ! Simple! As every prophet in the Bible bore the burden of the Lord, so his sole duty was to beseech the Father on behalf of the people and warn them of impending judgments, and desired outpourings. Both the which are subject to a response from His people who are called by His name. Do we need prophets today? Do we need dreamers today? Joel the 2nd chapter 28. “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:”
This need is not done away with, as long as there are those who are deaf, dumb, and blind in the earth; who cannot see, hear, or comprehend the living God. We are His representatives in the earth. The scripture even saying: As He is so are we in the world!
Isaiah 42:16 I will lead the blind by a way they did not know; I will guide them on unfamiliar paths. I will turn darkness into light before them and rough places into level ground. These things I will do for them, and I will not forsake them.
… Ceasing not to give thanks for you, I make mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: that the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints..”
”I, the LORD, have called you for a righteous purpose, and I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and appoint you to be a covenant for the people and a light to the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring prisoners out of the dungeon and those sitting in darkness out from the prison house.
When we dream of presidents, dignitaries, disasters, and world events, our first and foremost responsibility is to pray. Write them down, record them, and let the Lord reveal what you’re to do with them from there.

Cry records her dad’s favorite song for him to listen to during the most challenging days of his life. ”Take Me To The River” In acapella- sung to him by the voice he often joined, and blended so beautifully with, in better times. Something about that song resignated with him the last few weeks of his life. He fought the good fight, brave and beautiful, faithful to the end. Never wavering. There is a river that makes glad the city of our God! His home going was wrapped in heavenly visions, as he communicated with both worlds fully awake. Death where is thy sting? The crucifixion of Christ, the strange darkness, and earthquake that shook calvery’s scene, gripped the Lord’s followers with doubts and fears. His tortured, bruised, and mangled body, taunted them for believing that He was the promised one to come. As He was lowered from the cross and taken to the tomb.
Like wise our circumstances in life often do the same. They taunt us at the broken remains of our hopes and dreams, that carried an expectation, for better times and lovelier days. But the keeping power of God’s love, and amazing grace, is stronger than anyone can ever imagine, for those who trust in Him. No matter how dark the night Jesus displayed to the world, as sure as the sun comes up, that joy comes in the morning! Our faith is justified by the power of His resurrection. 2000 years have passed, kingdoms have come and gone; rulers have risen and fallen; even now churches stand empty through out the world, but the testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ remains, and we still celebrate Resurrection Day. Remembering His words that have carried the faithful for two millenniums, “… And, lo I Am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Math 28:20
For as the Father has life in Himself, so also He has granted the Son to have life in Himself.
And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that I shall lose none of those He has given Me, but raise them up at the last day.
Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father except by Me.
When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
I am He that lived and was dead, and behold, now I am alive forever more! And I have the keys of Death and of Hell.
