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 I 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 the 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!

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. 

Jeremiah 23:28

   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.

Proverbs 11:14

Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety.

Proverbs 20:18

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.

Ephesians 1:16-19

… 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.

SeerLife w/deana barnes

Over a span of 38 years Deana has ministered in outreaches, prisons, churches, and women’s meetings. After several years in property, business, and people management, the Lord called her aside into a life of prayer, writing, and a global media outreach in 2007. Her teaching articles, testimony, and prophetic words, have been viewed by individuals from 198 different countries, where recorded visits are fast approaching 800,000 views, through various forums, including christian websites, as well as her own. Much of her material has involved prophetic prayer mandates and  warnings of national and global events. Including The Arm of The Flesh In The Power Of The Mob, a prophetic warning of crises out of protest. A dream called  A City In Asia, and another called Incoming- Both depicting the effects and response to an international health crises. Earlier articles warning of the border crises called the Home Invasion Prophecy, A new out break of Ebola in the Congo, and desperate rioting on the streets of Venezuela. She was given prophetic dreams that revealed both presidential election outcomes, of the Obama era;  the Mid East crises involving Syria, Turkey, and Russia, and a Clinton serving in the Obama administration. An article called The Trump Paradigm shares what God showed her 10 years ago with President Trump. Along with various other world events over the years. At the time she accepted Christ in 1978, Deana received an open eye vision of the Lord handing her a blazing torch out of heaven that lit up the night sky; she was 17 years old. Later, she would understand that experience to signify a commission of God to an end-times prophetic ministry.

“There is nothing more sweet to experience on earth than lingering in the presence of almighty God, among His beloved. All the teaching and personal prayer ministry in the world cannot compete with a corporate visitation from God, brooding over His people, because they chose to gather in one accord to simply wait on Him! The resurrection life that pools out of the saints in these encounters is imperative to our collective health. It heals, restores, and connects, the body of Christ like no other. We only need to look at the 2nd chapter of Acts to see the impact this kind of seeking-assembly has, on outreach and evangelism. Often in these encounters members of the body become confirmed, and activated, in their part in advancing the Kingdom of God.”    -Deana Barnes

Living Hope


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

John 5:26

For as the Father has life in Himself, so also He has granted the Son to have life in Himself.

John 6:39

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.

John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father except by Me.

Colossians 3:4

When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Revelation 1:18

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.

Fight This Noble War!

1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before you, that you by them might war a good warfare.

The words spoken by the Spirit of God, over our lives, are weapons of war to fight the good fight of faith. They put in check the devil’s lies, and activate creation to align with the purposes of God. Remember prophetic words that speak into your destiny and declare them! That’s how we handle the Word of Life! Does a warrior lay his sword and armor down on a shelf, in days of battle? The answer is no. Therefore do not, and I repeat do not take prophecy (spoken over you) and put it on the shelf. As it has been taught in charismatic circles. Scripture says judge it. Out of the mouth of two or more witnesses let every word be established. Take it and wait on the Lord until He confirms it, or denies it. Let the other prophets (elders) stand and judge. Remember, a good tree bears forth good fruit, so consider the source. Knowing your prophet and being in relationship with prophetic people creates an atmosphere of proper prophetic processes. Why? Because where ever the Body Of Christ is functioning like it is suppose to, the full counsel of God is present. This is why these giftings often operate in companies of like minded anointings. For iron sharpens iron. Among such company words of prophecy will most certainly be clarified and quickly approved and activated. In the multitude of counsel our way is established. This is Kingdom. For He has set in the CHURCH apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. Ephesians ch 4. If they are not present among us than we are an incomplete body. We are just an assembly of stragglers, even if that assembly has assembled for years. The testimony of Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy, and to mishandle this gifting among the church of God is to mishandle the Word Of Life, for God breathed revelation testifies to the Son. It is time to throw out false teaching regarding the gifts of the spirit, especially when it comes to prophecy. We need them in our arsenal. The bible says, “Quench not the Holy Spirit. Despise not prophecy, prove all things, hold fast to that which is good.” 1 Thes 5:19-21 so there you go! Be the body do it right! Remember God breathed utterances and by them fight this noble war!

Dead Dogma, A Thief Of Life And Time.

Deliverance is for the desperate! How many hours of ministry and counsel has gone to those unwilling to hear God’s word, and truly apply his counsel to their heart and lives? Instead, many hang on to the dogma and theology of a powerless gospel, rather than the WORD of Life, that sets us free, by the power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit. Empty vessels desperately hungry for God, go after all He has to give them. Blessed are the hungry and thirsty! They want the water and bread of life! They are not gospel hardened. Blessed are the poor for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. .. Math 5:3

The Python Resistance

Podcast: The Python Resistance.

The Python Resistance is an act of warfare (in the spirit realm) that targets apostolic moves of God, or new beginnings. From church government, to street outreach, or bible study, this operative is stirred up at start up. Listen to- The Python Resistance and get all the down load on this teaching that will help you recognize if that satanic work is undermining what you are being called to do, in your own life. – Deana Barnes 

The Connector Anointing

The Body of Christ has elbows and knees just like any body would have. They are the joints that connect the body, that mobilize the seperate parts they are connected too. When a connector anointing joins two different functions together in the Body of  Christ, they themselves, enter into that function’s heavenly reward, for being the (connecting tissue of a work) in the righteous acts of the saints. 

1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you are a member of it.

The Dividing Rod

It’s a dividing rod between sheep and goats. It’s a decisive and inditing litmus test of the soul. A window to the heart. A divine checkmate of wrong and right. It outs the wolves who promote and defend it. And has marred and ruined, the lives of millions who have been the victim of it. It was the first thing I changed my mind on, when I received Christ, as if a light switch was turned on in my soul. Are your ready to know what this is? It is ABORTION.


imageI don’t need to know the political party that best suites me economically. Because an issue far beyond my own personal livelihood, has enlightened my eyes to one thing. There are evil promoters, and activists, running for office that condone the murder of thousands of innocent lives every year. So if my vote blocks them from coming into power, than nothing else matters for me. It is simple to know who not to trust because of their stand on abortion. Unfortunately, it is not a litmus test to whom we should put into power, not at all. However, this dividing rod falls at the feet of those who not only want a government that supports abortion but will pay for it and provide the world with free abortions. It is a simple and wise indicator (given by God) to see through to-the-heart; a window of the soul of those who promote, and defend, the termination of life in the womb. A son of perdition, they are, a reprobate, and worshiper of Baal, Molech, and Ashterath, by default.

When Jesus turned that light on in our darkened soul, and exposed the lie of satan that takes deception to believe, my husband and I had to cross over a line. A family line where blood is thicker than water, where the solidarity of a way of life in one’s craftsmanship was thicker than blood. A line that I’ve seen divide many families and unify strangers. It’s a betrayal to break with the Union over political views. No Union family (of which I was born into) would cross such a line. You can call it a moral picket line. In the day, crossing the picket line when there was a strike, was something you would suffer hunger before doing, in our neck of the woods. A betrayal of fathers, uncles, brothers, and cousins. It’s a cold hard reality, to look into the old tired eyes of a master craftsman and tell him why all he sacrificed and fought for, for my generation, was being blown to the wind over a political agenda. You wouldn’t understand the sacrifice of all this, if you have never had to stand for a cause that hurts you economically and breaks family ties.

The Union

A common bond that goes back to ancient times called guilds. From masons to metal workers, these guilds protected the skilled craftsman that would swear not to undercut each other, but stand unified in the cost of their labor and goods, committed to one another and the legacy left of their trade. The guilds even providing for the funerals of their members.

Many apprenticeships took four years before becoming a Journeymen. That still didn’t guarantee the title of master craftsman, that title took many years to achieve. Four years is equal to earning a bachelors degree in college. But reaching a mastership has been lost in the times. Unless you’re maintaining the integrity of hand crafted metal works, and blacksmithing, as a form of art. Otherwise, this level of skill is gone among the trades. Nevertheless, in the days when fathers and sons worked in a family owned business. these standards were imperative in maintaining a good life. The world needed your personalized ability, or wanted it. But it wasn’t going to be given away. Jesus, was a carpenter. In ancient times a man would risk his life if he rolled into a village and started selling his trade with out checking in with the local guild who shared the same skills. I’m explaining this for people that don’t understand hard line union, it is directly tied to a deep root that is a social and economic standing connecting a people of every race and creed. A people who promised to stand with one another come hell or high water, against big money and corporations, that want your blood sweat and tears for pennies on the dollar. To break that bond and work for less is nothing short of cowardice in the heart and mind of Union members. This bond was so powerful among my own people, that men who married sisters, and daughters, in our family had really no choice but to be Union if they were not already. If there was going to be friendship, and peace maintained in the family. It was, however, a kind of protective shield between us and the world. When there were strikes, that unification was power.

The industrial revolution changed our times, great wealth and industry came out of it, but this also caused an environment that began exploiting skilled and unskilled labor. Immigrants just off the boats, and the poor, became modern day slaves to long hours and low wages. This included women, and children working in despicable conditions. This is where organized labor balanced the swinging pendulum, between fair wages, and unsafe work environments, verses very little compensation, and dangerous conditions. Not the government. While laws were introduced regarding child labor, it was Union contracts that packed a punch, and ensured agreements were met, or the workers would walk out. The last walk out that I can remember was in the late 90’s. My husband came home from work early. There was a disagreement with management, and the tradesmen picked up their tools and cleared all the floors. The next day apologies were made and management was replaced. Problem over.

Labor contracts were the only thing that gave individuals the protection they needed. And not with out the loss of life in the early days in the union riots, thugs with clubs, would go in to break up workers trying to organize a union.

It was the union that first negotiated perks in labor contracts, we now know as health care, to be part of the package deal in what many Americans now enjoy as a provision of their employment. So, many union haters to this day, enjoy what solidarity and sacrifice stood for, and even died for in the early days. Many don’t know that history.

But all of that changed in the mid 70’s the tide turned, for the American Union member, that the history books won’t mention. Over an issue, not immediately understood. Because of a social blight against our moral standing, that the birth control pill didn’t diminish. A carnage taking place in the back alleys of our moral decay as a nation. Abortion was a practice going as far back as the beginning of the human family. Where they learned the use of herbs and roots that could miscarry an un-wanted pregnancy. We read about the first Christians under Roman rule, who scoured city trash heaps for infants born, and then thrown away like refuse. The Christians would save the babies from the rubble of a godless society on the outskirts of the city.

Now, in the decade of the sexual revolution a new type of carnage began to bloody our hands as a nation. The American family who was falling so far away from God, was killing their unborn in record numbers. It is a stain on all of us. Something every one needs to repent for, whether or not we remained chaste before marriage, or brought our children into the world with in the bonds of marriage. We contributed, as a people, to our moral failures in America. The bible says righteousness secures a strong foundation, but sin will destroy us. The world changed, it shifted, and God dropped a rod at the foot of the backbone of America. The question? Of all the lines that were never crossed for principal, for what a unified people viewed as even immoral and a sin, against your brother, what about this line? What we stood for- for gain, will we stand up for life? In 1973 a decision was made in the supreme courts of the land that challenged the heart and core of a nation. Roe vs Wade rocked the peace of families, churches, and neighborhoods with an argument. Pro-life vs pro-choice. Suddenly, family members began to disagree. Whats worse, a nation began to polarize over the abortion issue, politically. History tells us at the same time, the Union began to weaken and here is why:

A dividing rod began to lay bare the soul of a nation. Middle Class America, would never see eye to eye again. The values of God and country was now being deeply challenged and the democratic union worker would be left standing at the epic center of it all. His or her life and livelihood was being challenged by what would become their moral standing. Their political party would betray them, by taking sides with the pro-choice movement. The Union, its administration, didn’t even blink an eye, as they poured millions of dollars of union dues (and for the most part even their workers pensions) into the support of pro union democratic politicians. Never considering the moral dilemma union members were struggling with. While they paid their dues. They voted their conscience.

The Democrats worked that mine. You see, what most people don’t understand is that China is not who our government owes the most to. They are second to the American pensioner. The democrats want to make up for our big spending, by taxing us more. Their hands are in the pockets of organized labor and every man and woman who gets up and goes to work every day.

How The Mighty Have Fallen.

This litmus test, this rod, reveals to the very core, the moral standing of everyone that realizes that abortion terminates the pregnancy of a woman with child. For this reason, a silent army of God fearing individuals, have abandoned their personal political views to vote the conservative ticket. For it is the only one that speaks out against the murder of the unborn, in contrast to the liberal ticket that promotes it. Only one party has stood pro-actively on that side over and over again.

This silent and invisible resolve includes God fearing members of the brotherhood, across the landscape of the American skilled tradesman, and their local fraternities. Who were forced to choose between their most personal convictions, rooted in their most sacred beliefs, over their livelihood. This silent army of true hearts, had to choose between their allegiances and their God. Between a better economic future or a bleak one, to vote for a pro choice democratic party, or the Union busting republicans, over this one issue of moral standing that separates the goats and sheep of the heart. Since 1973 Americans have been born into the realization of this moral dilemma and have died in it, as well. In droves these Union Workers crossed the line, the picket line, to betray the brotherhood for the life of the unborn. Some left it altogether. To speak up over the very reason why this nation has no advocacy before an angry God. To be one. To be a standard. Knowing righteousness exalts a nation but sin will tear it down. Prv 14:34

An injustice suffered by the most innocent and helpless of our society demanded a voice for them, and men and women across the land changed their political party. Don’t tell me legalizing the murder and dismemberment of the pre-born keeps the back alley coat hanger abortions from happening. That is like making murder legal because people are going to do it any way. It makes no sense. In a sense it wasn’t the republican administrations and congress that busted the unions, and weakened them into the failure they are today. It was them- the Union administration that had no moral standing, that cut deals with the devil. Believing that union members would forsake their soul for a shinier dime. They miss calculated their constituents and the Union has been in trouble ever since. Few put two and two together on why. The Union Member’s voting power took issue with a political party their dues supported. Union busting politicians that rode in on pro life issues may have sensed the moral dilemma many suffered and used it as leverage. But the thought that changing your party and your vote could stop the madness of the legalized murder of pre born children, was there in the forefront of our minds every time. The fact it was taken out of the hands of the states to decide for themselves ruined us that much more. There was no where to go that our tax dollars and union dues wouldn’t support this crime. Privately, many union supporting former democrats found financial security was not the driving factor at the voting polls, for them. The best days of their lives were behind them, but time and time again they voted. When a Journeymen’s hourly wage could buy 24 loaves of bread, in 1969 at 25 cents, you can see how far we’ve all fallen from middle class America, into a two class society. Do the math on todays economy. Look at what it would take to sustain that now.

The Unions have no power, not because of republican president. Not because of right to work. But, because they squandered their voting power and their money, in a time that they were the strongest, on a party that is anti American, underestimating the God fearing brotherhood among them. When the line was drawn in the sand, when the dividing rod between good and evil clearly laid it out, they stood on the losing side, and crossed a moral line, many chose not to follow. Though they continued to go to work and pay their dues, their vote followed their conscience. The years that followed proved the worst years on record for organized labor. There is a huge disconnect between union administration and the actual workers. The face of the union has changed forever. The integrity of the crafts have not been protected. Apprenticeships are down, being replaced by laborers. Many of those laborers are not American citizens, and frankly, built in America, is just another label with little  meaning any more. For many Journeymen that have been around for awhile, they’ve seen the erosion of quality in their industry. If America is ever going to be great again, this issue for the unborn needs laid to rest. A divided kingdom cannot stand, when the murder of the unborn weighs against it.

Christians of Iran

A prophetic dream. Is Jeremiah 49:35-39 about to take place with Iran? First a little History.

Below we see how much Iran changed after the Islamic Revolution 1978-1979. Iran students once dressed very similar to westerners.

Remembering Iranian Christians.

According to Open Doors USA, there are 800,000 Christians of a population of 80,000,000, in Iran. For some reason Wikipedia shrinks that number down to 300,000 to 375, 000. I’m leaning towards Open Door’s estimate. However, asylum seekers may be shifting that number down. Especially, in light of the recent jailing of 100 Iranian Christians just days ago.

In November of 2018, I had a dream that I was walking through an open market place and kept seeing Iranian Christian families showing up as if from out of no where, scattered and integrated in the market place. It seemed as though populations outside of Iran were swelling with Iranian Christian Refugees. I saw many becoming small business vendors, in the food industry. They were just there. They set up shop. Markets and malls were swelling with refugee vendors at every turn. I wondered if this mall/ market place was in America, as well. Will President Trump change his mind about Iranian refugees? As of late asylum seekers have not been given the green flag to come here.

To Westerners the change in Iran took on less than civil overtones, forty years ago. Especially when a frenzied crowd (among thousands) upset the Ayatollah Komenie’s casket so violently, his body became exposed; as grief stricken on-lookers tore fragments of his burial cloth, to be kept as mementos, in the funeral procession in 1989 Teran, Iran.

For most of the American public, this was proof enough that the changes in Iran were leading the people backward, rather than forward, since the days of the Shah, before the Islamic Revolution. Many today may not realize that the Iranian people once dressed in similar fashions of the western culture. This was most evident in the 1970’s. The change was so radical that 2800 years of Persian history seemed to dissolve, if that’s possible, giving way to an Islamic Republic. The colorful Empire, began to became veiled in black.

From this side of the pond, it looks as though a people we had some commonality with, as far as fashion, and some culture, is long gone. We remember the Shah with a fair amount of likability, his beautiful wife even more. While his excessive life style was said to have contributed to the revolution, many Americans that remember the descendant of this long line of Monarchs, Reza Pahlavi, had a more positive view of him.

The Shah was forced out of Iran February 11th 1979 and died in Cairo, Egypt. He was still in exile at His death July 27th, 1980.

King Cyrus the famous and great Persian King of the bible (Isaiah 45:1-7) was an advocate for Israel who made it possible for their temple to be restored. King Cyrus was appointed by God to bring restoration to Israel. This ancient people seems to have gone into their own captivity. One that appears to have diminished their Persian identity. The Revolution involving many college students at the time, is being protested against, by them now. Iran appears in end times prophecy as written in:

Jeremiah 49:35-39

Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.

And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.

For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them: And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD. But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the LORD The people of Elam,

scattered to the winds of the earth.

We may be ramping up towards that scenario, as sanctions by President Trump go into effect. Wouldn’t it be poetic that President Trump, who is paralleled with King Cyrus by many prophetic circles, returned the favor of Cyrus toward God’s persecuted church of Iran. To be a wall of refuge for believers from Iran, in crises.

Pray for Christians in Iran.

Escaping Isolation

Remnant Nation Radio. A Podcast w/ Deana Barnes

This podcast identifies the culture of isolation in our society, and how western Christianity is the number one model to that effect. Deana shows the listener how far we have strayed from the true pattern of the church in reliance and accountability toward one another.  Many have followed in the footsteps of our culture, leading them into isolation in the midst of a crowd. Working in cubicles in a packed office, living in subdivisions or gated communities, but still not knowing our co-workers or neighbors; riding subways and elevators with the same people every day, yet we are strangers. Worst of all, going to church and sitting amidst a congregation in utter isolation. While pastors lost in a sea of human misery, burn out while they them-selves suffer apart from God’s pattern for the church, there is a model to return to, if only we would. Listen to this podcast to identify the biblical relationship between layman and leadership in ancient Christian text. How we can begin anew by ESCAPING the Culture of crowded ISOLATION in our society.
