Listen to “Beast System Appetites” A prophetic dream. While there are some serious points made, in this podcast, derived from real-life tragedy, the lessons learned are priceless that can lead to victorious outcomes. Esau gave up his birth right because he was hungry. Yet, he belonged to a family that had no want. Listen to this podcast by Deana Barnes that exposes how little it will take for people to sell out to the System of The Beast. Get ready!
A prophetic dream. Is Jeremiah 45:35-39 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:
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.
I saw Ebola hit the Congo in a forested region in a vision in 2014. In the vision, I saw what I believe would be a worse case scenario should the epidemic spiral out of control. This involved improper and desperate disposal of the remains of Ebola victims that aggravated efforts to control the epidemic from spreading. The improper handling of the victims were not done by officials but people desperately trying to rid their immediate community of the dead. The vision was included in a prayer request for the Democratic Republic of the Congo on a popular prophetic website in 2014. Ebola in West Africa was still an epidemic and drew world wide attention between 2014-2016 where 28,616 cases resulted in 11,310 deaths.
After the virus was brought under control in West Africa, a new out-break did, in fact, occur in the Congo in 2017. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) there have been 561 confirmed cases and 370 deaths in the DRC. They are not out of the woods yet, and still need our prayers. No sooner that it gets stomped out in one area, does it flare up in another. The Congo is rich in cobalt. Cobalt is a material much desired by the defense industry. This epidemic is rarely spoken of in the news.
Why does God show us these things?
“… I believe this word is truly in its season. I believe that if you are an end-time intercessor who is appointed over people groups, countries, territories, and regions, you are in a ride of your life, this supernatural apostolic work, and its anointing is peeling back the darkness and we are seeing astounding things in the spirit. We need special prayer coverings over these prophetic and apostolic intercessors. Some might ask what is this kind of intercession? It comes from the eagle eye view in world matters. This specific kind of intercessor is finding themselves stepping into Satan’s war room as described by Jill Austin in her prophecy called God’s Mafia, where you will hear high level plans being hatched out against the kingdom of God and the innocent in the land. Even those who seek to control resources through out the earth and how they are conniving to possess or control them. We need to understand the onslaught of hell is against the headship of Christ who is the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Satan’s earthbound henchmen have no idea how close The Father’s majestic Kingdom broods over the affairs of this world. … He does know, all too well, the Head of the Church is Christ. And how much the Church is growing up into His Headship manifesting His governance in the earth …what greater way to war against God’s creation than to separate them from their Head. Because, in truth, Satan, himself, is in jealous rage against our standing in Christ, the King of King and Lord of Lords.”

Axles and Drive-lines
We had parked our vehicle down town in a parking lot that charged us $10.00. When we went to retrieve it my husband and I discovered that heavy equipment operators had completely tore up the parking lot, while our Ford 4×4 all terrain vehicle was parked there. Some cars we saw were disabled and stuck in the dirt. Other vehicles were perfectly fine completely untouched. You could tell that the big equipment just went around the “untouched” vehicles. Those cars had been parked there forever, and were going no where any way. The active vehicles trying to get out were most effected by it all.
As we were granny gearing out of the lot in 4-wheel drive, I said, ” Lord how are we going to get out of this?” The Lord said, “Faith is what brought you here. Faith is the vehicle that will get you out.” I realized that the “vehicle” was equipped to do the job, if any there was. We kept going until we were out of the parking lot. As we drove out, I saw a young man on his knees in the dirt; he was hot and sweaty and trying to get out, but his drive line and axle was broken. He looked at me with despair in his eyes. I promised my self, “When we get out of this we’ll come back for him …”
It’s been years since I had the dream. The dream came true, in that we were called to come out of the city we were dwelling in, and thankfully, the warfare that went along with it. Our leaving was a HUGE leap of faith. We obeyed God into the unknown, and he was faithful all the way.
For a year after that we had prayed for the young man, and those he represented. I asked the Lord, “What is happening to them?” The Lord showed me that there was a “spirit of disparagement” working against this young man and those who were trying to move on an upward call of God on their lives. The root of disparagement is doubt and unbelief. First our faith begins to erode in trials like this, then goes our joy. Then our strength. These have lost their joy believing that God has done this thing to them. And they have despaired in it, and hopelessness has settled in.
When you are built up in your faith it is like an all terrain vehicle, it will drive you out of ruts and off the beaten path. In dreams your car often speaks of where you are going in your life. We can have a lot of ideas and dreams under the hood, but if our drive line and axle is broken those ideas and dreams will go no where. If we believe God, our works confirm it. Have you ever heard of the phrase, Actions speak louder than words?
What faith action do we take when despair is trying to settle in? We build up our faith by declaring to ourselves and those around us what God’s word says about our circumstances. This brings to us peace that passes understanding. The word of God comforts us, and in that comfort comes joy. Our enemy may try to sink us; but, what Satan has meant for evil, God will turn around for Good. In trusting the Lord during dire circumstances, we gain patience, and temperance, and increase in our faith.
You see, patience waits upon God to show himself faithful, when he does it makes us stronger for the next time around when our faith is tested. This is where patience has its perfect work. Don’t give way to despair and allow doubt to break you down! Disparagement is a spiritual paralysis that shows no mercy, and it is nothing short of demonic.
Philippians 4:1-8 (Amplified Bible)
Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice!
Let all men know and perceive and recognize your unselfishness (your considerateness, your forbearing spirit). The Lord is near [He is coming soon].
Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.
And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].
… So we were crying out for this young man, and who he represented, in the Spirit; and the Lord showed me something:
I saw why God tells us over and over again to pray for one another, and to encourage one another.
As we prayed I began to see a vision of the scene in the dream. The scene changed and I could see the same young man, I saw in the dream. Again he was on his knees beside the car sunk into the dirt. But he wasn’t despairing any more. He was digging in the ground with great strength and determination, and I saw the Angel of the LORD and he was standing over the car, and he was waving a brilliant sword over the young man and the car.
And I heard God say to him,
” If you dig out enough room for it, I will restore what has been broken, and you will drive out of this.”
I realized if he didn’t take the effort by making room for the power-train to be worked on, then the car could never be fixed.
I saw that the presence of the Angel warred back oppressive forces that was making it (almost) impossible for the young man to function. It was as if he had been encased with a thick heavy darkness at times, and he couldn’t see to do anything. But I saw this Angel standing and it held back the darkness, where the young man could see, and work, and his strength and stamina returned to him, and he literally began to dig out room to work under the car.
It was like God was saying, if you do that, I will replace it, and it will be all that you need to get out of this sink hole you are in. Just do that.
I thought of the scripture that says, what ever your hand finds to do, do it with all of your might. What ever challenge comes up; work it! Focus on it, and God will provide whatever equipment you need to accomplish victory. Soon, over all, this vehicle is going to pull itself completely out of every rut and on to open highway! As long as the young man did not give up, but kept plugging along, this whole experience would bring him into another place, with better equipment to handle challenges as he moves toward the prize of the upward call of God.
I remembered the scripture in Mathew 13:44-
“..the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field …”
So this is the Word of the Lord, “Don’t GIVE UP! See your enemy has lied to you, and blinded your eyes. But I am not going to leave you stranded here in this condition, I have interceded for you, I have stood in the gap, DIG! Seek me and you will find me. I will increase in you: faith, wisdom, understanding, vision. And the Lord said, “I will replace in you a new and better power-train then you have ever had before”.
I thought of the scripture in Hebrews 11:6 that says-
Those who come to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. When we go to him searching for answers, we are saying, ” I believe that you ARE God. When we do this diligently, we are saying, “I know that you are faithful and true and because of that I am not going to be satisfied with my circumstances, until I am living in the promises of God.”
This search taps us into the vision where we see what God has in mind for us. It is our own search and it builds up our faith, we begin to see His plan unfold in our lives. But first the old strongholds need to be broken down and cleared out, so that we do not continue to implement man made doctrines and ideologies in God’s work. We stop doubting God’s integrity and embrace the fact that He is true to His word. In the upheaval of Him plucking up to replant we ride through it in faith, to move on to higher levels. How much the enemy would love to get us stuck in a mindset contrary to the truth of God’s word, and what he wants in our lives.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
The work of the prophets is to do just that, and we need that work continuously in our own life.
John the Baptist did just that in the Spirit of Elijah, and the Spirit of Elijah in the prophets of God must not ever be shut down for that anointing is what turns the heart of the fathers towards their children, and the hearts of the children towards their father. It makes straight the paths of the Lord, for repentance, renewal, reform, and finally one day, the millennial reign of Christ .
See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.” The torn up Parking Lot is an upheaval that speaks of that day when God has given over to the destroyer, the things that our dead. That take up good ground, DEAD WORKS. If we are firmly planted in them, it can completely turn our world upside down. A functional power-train is what we need to overcome many things; broken dreams, broken lives, loss of vision, despair, discouragement, it speaks to all of us in different aspects of our lives; places that we have parked ourselves in, and have not moved on. However if GOd’s people persevere, they will see His faithfulness, He so much wants to show them.
James 1:1-5 (The Message)
The double minded man is unstable in all his ways…
Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.
If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believing, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.
The Message (MSG)Copyright ©
A new drive-line, I saw this thing God gave to the young man and it was like Gold. He said buy of me Gold tried by fire. It will last. A work that will remain, and stand in judgment in the last day. If you have gone so far to be broken in faith and left in despair, to the point that you’re not even moving around like you use to in your Christian life; don’t give up on the Pearl of Great Price! SEEK and ye shall Find. DIG! It’s time for renewal, it’s time for upgraded equipment, the things that are not working for you anymore, never really belonged. Your life is about to change in a substantial way. Not end!
In The Paradox of Realms
Broken Axles and Drive-lines
Isaiah 61:1-5 (New International Version)
The Year of the LORD’s Favor The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, [a]
to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, a garment of praise, instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
They will rebuild the ancient ruins
and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.
Should we not fervently pray for those who are less at ease than we are?
If you are in a place of *peace time be grateful, but remember, your brothers and sisters just like you, may be in a place of war. Some drafted, some enlisted. All of them need our fervent prayer. And this is the paradox of the spiritual realms. They may be sitting right next to you. Whats more, you may be experiencing peace in your life because of their front line operations, in the Spirit! If you do not understand the silent battle, nor see the rising smoke, nor hear the clamor of shield and sword, assume not that their condition is as your own. For even in our own continent we suffer spiritual realms as dark as the continent of Africa, as lawless as stormy seas, as merciless as the cold chains of Siberian prisons. And those who enter these realms whether in prayer, or on foot, need the walls of the Father’s House to surround them. And remember, when they come off the battlefield, do they not have soot on the brow? Dirt beneath the nail? Blood on the garment? Could they be war weary? As it is in the natural, so is it in the spirit, our soldiers need our support. Ground patrol needs, air patrol! But you have put the distance between them and yourself? Perhaps they smell of the sinner? But you have not discerned the source, or the difference, between the one rescued from the dank prison, and the one who has pulled them from it.
There are those who walk among them; who are not of them.
Jesus himself said,”I am in this world but not of it.
In the world of vanity that we live in, in the culture so biased on appearance. How much more so, should we who, as God’s people, look not at the outward man but the inward heart? And to know no man after the flesh, but to (intimately know them) by the Spirit. This is how so many thought to be wise, have erred so foolishly. This is how, the trained heart can instantly in season, and out, mobilize in God’s divine appointments; discerning the fruit because it is a spiritual observance, and not a natural one.
( Looking beyond those things relative to the four walls of the church, and referencing them against the vast Kingdom of God, and His Word.) This is the trained mind and spirit that has spiritual discernment, who can move into the “day of suddenlies”,
Who is blind but my servant ..?
Isaiah 42:19-23 (The Message)
You’ve Seen a Lot, but Looked at Nothing
Pay attention! Are you deaf?
Open your eyes! Are you blind?
You’re my servant, and you’re not looking!
You’re my messenger, and you’re not listening!
The very people I depended upon, servants of God,
blind as a bat—willfully blind!
You’ve seen a lot, but looked at nothing.
You’ve heard everything, but listened to nothing.
God intended, out of the goodness of his heart,
to be lavish in his revelation.
But this is a people battered and cowed,
shut up in attics and closets,
Victims licking their wounds,
feeling ignored, abandoned.
But is anyone out there listening?
Is anyone paying attention to what’s coming?
Pray to the Lord of the Harvest …
We need those who discern by the Spirit of Wisdom, and not through the natural mind. Our church world, is full of natural plantings, working natural works, discerned by the natural mind, as being qualified; filling the “house” with the works of men! It is of those who abide in the Spirit flow, in God, outside the confines of our four walled churches, that will “move” into the living, breathing, fluid, and fluent army of God; like a river-
flooding out the battlefields of hellish plots, and reaching heights of Holy glory! Seeing those things that cannot be seen, and knowing those things that cannot be known, because revelation knowledge transcends them beyond the carnal mind. And lives are reached beyond the pews.

While I believe the prayers of God’s people can ramp down the events at our border, and I hope they will- still there is an issue that must be resolved. Would that Presidents before Trump had dealt with this issue. The humanity that is marching towards our border is an issue that was inevitable, the minute any country south of our border would fall into crises, and begin to crumble. But no one did anything about it by enforcing our laws, or changing them for the times we are in. Certainly not the Obama administration. Rather, trafficking and slavery of all kinds have had full reign to exploit men, women, and children, desperate for a better life. Including the influx of unattended children during the last administration. I saw this in a dream where South American children were spilling into our lawn, out of the woods in 2011. This is our fault for not having strong borders. Perhaps the lawmakers, in Washington D.C. was benefiting from it more than we would like to know. What is more bone chilling for us all is the terrorist, the bad actors, the ruthless cartel, that is infiltrating our country. People taking money, that don’t belong here, filling our streets to protest, meddling in our elections.
In February 2016, I had a jolting experience that turned out to be one of the most profound visions I’ve ever experienced. As an intercessor for this nation, and for many nations over the years, I can tell you that God has shown me many things, and by the way anyone desiring to be a prophet need only enlist as a lowly intercessor who will answer the cry of the Spirit day and night to intercede. This is when you will see great and mighty things when co-laboring with the greatest intercessor of all. I don’t make predictions, I make intercession. In intercessions I some times see international events that are predictable through the view of a prophetic lens. Often, seeing in part, I don’t completely understand it all. America’s Home Invasion was a vision of an event that seem to last for about 10 horrifying minutes. Where I believed I was actually experiencing and engaged in what I was seeing. Unlike some visions, your feet are on the ground and you know your watching a heavenly movie. While prophetic dreams are dreams, you wake up from, this experience was unlike either. I wasn’t in prayer nor sleep, as you will understand listening to this audio. What I do know is that this audio reading of an article post dated in March of 2016 is more relevant now than ever. I believe God wanted me to see and feel the fearful reality of what is happening at our borders in a parable of a home invasion. While seeing the humanity and suffering, on the other side. Why it is happening. What we can do to make the best of a very bad situation. Perhaps, the wisdom of Solomon can be given us to fix it. Where bad actors are chased off, and families separated are reunited. Because we did this. Perhaps points in this parable have already been happening, and coming to pass, for after all it is almost three years now since this vision occurred. But as I said, in the article back then it is an invasion and it is going to ramp up. Praying for peace at our borders! It is all certainly coming to a head and America needs to address it once and for all.

A Prophetic Dream
There are many ways we can describe the Lord Jesus. He is our Messiah, the Good Shepherd, Savior, and Prince of Peace. But in turn there are many ways He can describe us. The Body of Christ, Sheep of His Pasture, the Bride, even His Temple. For we are refered to as the Temple of the Holy Ghost. In this podcast is a reading and commentary on a dream where God speaks to His family using an eye opening name for His people, responsible for the end time harvest. We’ve got to know who we are, we’ve got to see what we have. Many are not going to be ready to be a part of this end-time harvest, though they have zeal. Remember, Jesus had to tell them to lift up their eyes to look and see that the harvest was ready. Because they were blinded by their scheduled events. When harvest normally is. How can we learn to walk in, what comes next? Don’t miss this prophetic podcast with Deana Barnes, that has already had an impact at Remnant Nation Radio.
Knowing What Is Next
Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.
In a dream I was on a visit at a family’s home right in the middle of a town. We were talking and walking around the back yard. There was a garden bed, it seemed 3 times bigger than my own garden at home. I had put this garden in for them, it seemed a while back. I remember building up the soil and measuring out the size of the bed, and planting seeds, and plants, in the garden for them, while they had been busy with life and family. I almost walked past it.
At first glance it looked over grown – with greenery, it hadn’t been taken care of. I didn’t see any thing ready for harvest yet. But when I looked closer and moved the overgrowth out of the way, I saw vegetables of all kinds: tomatoes, peppers, and onion, lots of vegetables ready to be picked. The garden was ripe and ready. Some over ripe, but nothing had perished yet. All the work had been done for this garden, it just needed harvested. I had planted it, but it was time for others to do their part. The Lord impressed upon me to look at the names, in the dream, to SEE the message and the Church. The name of the property owners in Hebrew meant:
The Store House Of Jehovah’s Flame.
There were children and babies in the house! “I looked up and saw a figure standing on the porch looking out. Their Hebrew name means “Where The King Meets.” In the arms of where The King Meets was “Rest.” It was up to the Flame of Jehovah to pull in the harvest. Flame represented the Zeal Of The Lord! All they had to do was harvest it, it was harvest time! A few things were at a fermentation stage but not lost. When I looked up I saw that they had fenced off their own land too narrow. It was suppose to be 4 times wider, and 3 times longer. This speaks of vision or the lack there of. (I’ll cover that in a moment). I was trying to get them to see their property line was farther down and wider than what they had fenced off. As far as the garden itself, the fruit was almost lost due to the lack of searching for a thing in its time, and season. They didn’t make the necessary effort towards WHAT IS NEXT, after cultivation, planting, and watering … that they clearly didn’t even have to do. There seemed to be no expectation for fruit. It was simply a matter of waiting for the fullness of the season for them, but the Store House Of Jehovah’s Flame, just walked past it all, pre-occupied with the back yard view. Clearly, this a form of spiritual blindness, on more than many levels, and I believe those plagued with this blindness are products of the institutionalized Church, that have a disconnect with who and what they are in the kingdom.
Do you not say, ‘There are still four months until the harvest’? I tell you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are ripe for harvest.Already the reaper draws his wages and gathers a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may rejoice together. For in this case the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. I sent you to reap what you have not worked for; others have done the hard work, and now you have taken up their labor.
We need to understand sequential processes that even nature teaches exist! To know what comes after … what is next, and look for it. The Kingdom of God is built upon the principles of agriculture and animal husbandry. Look at most of the Lord’s parables. Parables about plowing, sowing seeds, harvest, and threshing floors. Vineyard keeping. Stewardships, and debt settlements. All of these have one thing in common. That is natural order. Stages of activity required in any given season, that leads to the next. The bible says that there are times and seasons that are not for us to know that are in the Fathers hands. This has to do with Jesus’s return and the time of the end. All that is required of us is readiness and watchfulness. However, there are those things that are given into our hands to know. The time of harvest comes when it is time. It is “looked for, watched for.”
This dream tells me that there is a harvest that I’m in close proximity to, that is being neglected. From a personal level to a generational one. The laborers are so few, those looking and expecting for God to move are the only ones showing up for WHAT IS NEXT. As the sons of Issachar had wisdom to know times and seasons, so wisdom lines us up with God’s timing. An ability that knows what’s next, by observation and expectation of the demonstration and power of God- these are evident in those that walk in this because nothing will keep them from it! Pearls of great price, treasures in the field … are sacrificed for. But we cannot have passion in our slumber, no matter our zealous activity or activism; true passion seeks an awareness of what God is doing, and will be a part of it.
1 Ch 12:32 Of Issachar knowing times and seasons.
… And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brothers were at their commandment.
Commentary tells us this was a knowledge or gift they had that kept Israel on course, of them were 200 chiefs among the people. I believe the Body of Christ has this same kind of wisdom among us when we are operating properly. After all we are spiritual Israel. If members of the Body are isolated then they are cut off from the general concession in the determination of what IS NEXT, or left alone in it. Neither condition promotes the fulness of God, but I would rather go it alone into the field of harvest, possibly reaping another’s reward, than never going at all.
I’ve never seen the Lord do any thing random. One work, meeting, or outpouring, was in preparation for the season coming next. Yet, I’ve seen people step out of the order of God doing things that seemed a good thing to do, but they were cleverly disguised distractions. Equivalent to abandoning the plow in the middle of the field, in order to go build a barn. Failing to see that if that field doesn’t get plowed and seeded, in the right season, there will be no need for a barn! The worker of God needs wisdom, knowledge, and understanding; with their zeal, and fervor, to be most affective in the moment they are in. Above that they must believe in purpose. For everything there is a time, and season under the sun. They need to know, by the Spirit of God, the instrument that they are, and giftings surrounding them. Purpose is aborted when the purpose for conception is never realized. People abandon the natural process of what is next because they are either blind to it, or oblivious to their potential in it. Institutionalization creates a pattern or mapping in our brains that creates a mindless herd instinct. Rather than the realization that we are the temple of a fiery Holy Indweller that calls us to the Father, one life and breath at a time; our ability to see as individuals has corporate value, as corporate vision has value to individuals.
Hosea 4:6 declares-
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”
When we understand our calling, our gifting, and our placement, our focus cannot get side tracked. When we see the bigger picture, we find how disruptive our absence is when random impulse overrides intentional living.
Every farmer knows when to plant, when to tend, and when to harvest. It is by observation. Look and see!
To DISCERN the days of harvest.
All it took was to look. SEE the fields are white already!! In the parable of the harvest they were told to LOOK and SEE! There is a strange phenomenon being addressed in this parable. It is a blindness to what should be the obvious. Most churches send out a monthly calendar, planning their meetings and activities according to dates and holidays, often months in advance! Never considering that their yearly activities aņd holidays, are interrupting momentums of God! Often one person is in charge of planning these events rather than the entire presbytery meeting in fastings and prayers to plan, and assign commissionings, and gatherings of the saints. The Body is connected to the heart and mind of Christ collectively. Therefore WHAT IS NEXT should be seen collectively, or at least they would bear witness to the vision or direction collectively! But, that requires a Body fitly joined together. A devoted presbytery is enough, but ideally the flock is in unity. Look how they arrived together sending out and receiving one another in the New Testament. No one person is assigned to the decision making. Except when they are commended to God to fulfill a specific and singular calling. But, even the Apostles had to be received by the Church in their circuits. We see that John was actually wickedly rejected by one of those Churches, by someone acting on his own.
3 John 1:9 I wrote to the Church: but Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among them, receives us not.
A seeking people submitted to one another is less likely to derail the purposes of God. One acting upon their own, making decisions on their own, is trumping that they have no need of the hand. Or foot. It is simple. If our endeavors are the result of a personal commission of God, we act upon the leading of the Holy Spirit, and counsel and confirmations He crosses our path with. If our endeavors involve the Body of Christ as a worker among a Body of saints, than we are collectively led, using the presbytery- not forgetting to involve the congregation. In this way we can be sure our foot steps are ordered of the Lord.
Acts 15:22-2 Then the apostles and elders, with the whole church, decided to choose some of their own men and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They chose Judas (called Barsabbas) and Silas, men who were leaders among the believers. With them they sent the following letter: The apostles and elders, your brothers, To the Gentile believers in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia: in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia .. (study chapter 15 to see the churches rightful place in corporate decision making.)
Notice how visitors were sent out and received in this passage? Collectively, corporately. This minimized the chance of sending or receiving an apostate among the flocks of God.
Zeal without knowledge will find us barreling down dead-end streets that lead to no where. I can tell you countless times where Holy Spirit outpourings became derailed because of the Christmas season, and divine momentums lost because Easter had to be served with egg hunts and pageantry. Or, the yearly church picnic; or the Pastor’s family vacation. (Revealing reliances are not on Jesus’s headship but a personality.) A deeper discussion could be explored on how some of these activities, (say certain holiday observances) may actually grieve the Holy Spirit, and cause His departure, in the middle of what should have been days of renewal. Or, an entry into the field of harvest. Rather, these moments are frivolously squandered. Fruit falls to the ground and a harvest is lost. Many times people just shrink back. When all that we have to do is what comes next. This life style of making our appointments, as a people, requires a reliance on the Spirit of God, and an assembly of the faithful, not apart from either one. Follow the Spirit, and hang out with the faithful. Huddle with the ones who pay the price to obey. This will never forsake you.
Jesus ends the parable of the harvest with instructions to pray to the Lord of the harvest, to send forth laborers! Harvesters are skilled for just that, you have to know what you’re doing! But, it is field work so it doesn’t take that much instruction, more so, it takes the willing!
In this dream, the one appointed to bring in the harvest was taking a stroll, instead! There was vision but it was limited. Mindsets can limit vision. We were on a tour, but what I saw and what they saw was not the same! I saw a harvest over due. I saw work that couldn’t wait. I saw that the Store House of Jehovah’s Flame had a harvest about to rot in the ground, and a trust not comprehended, an inheritance fenced off too narrow, from its original size. Blind and short-sighted! Where there is no vision the people cast off restraint. In other words they do not live intentional lives. According to the responsibility staked out before them. They have everything they need but vision and wisdom to know what’s suppose to happen next.
This Christian at that very moment whose name speaks to having a zeal for God, was pointing out to me perimeters of a vision that I could see was just a quarter of what it was really suppose to be, while neglecting to see a garden ready to be harvested. This is twice the blindness.
Zeal is what all active Christians have. But activity and passion is not Wisdom Knowledge and Understanding. Thomas in the bible had a problem with doubt and unbelief, but He was not without zeal and passion. While Jesus was preparing to go raise Lazerus from the dead Thomas was preparing to go with Him and die. That is ZEAL. But it was zeal with out knowledge, with out understanding, with out expectation, it fell short of the will and purposes of God. Thomas was ready to die with His Lord. But, not prepared to believe in his resurrection power. For even as He saw what Jesus did for Lazerus, Thomas still doubted when he was told Jesus himself was resurrected from the dead. Thomas had zeal and passion, or he would have never been a follower of Christ. Yet, he lacked faith. This zealous disciple is known as Doubting Thomas. We can call Him Zealous Didymus according to the following scripture.
His disciples said, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone you; and go you thither again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbles not, because he sees the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him. These things said he: and after that he said to them, Our friend Lazarus sleeps; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. However, Jesus spoke of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. Then said Jesus to them plainly, Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent you may believe; nevertheless let us go to him. Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, to his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him …
Dieing for a cause is commendable. But it is a waste when our zeal and passion runs us past God’s plans and purposes for our lives. Again we see Thomas falling short of the point of it all, missing the power of His resurrection. Yet, he was chosen to be a disciple, and apostle of Christ. Jesus took the time to walk Thomas through, for better understanding.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen! Blessed are those who have never seen Jesus with their own eyes, but yet believe. Faith looks for the fruit in the days of harvest. Wisdom embarks upon the task with all the right equipment.
The trees and vines of spiritual inheritances, are hanging low, and heavy, but few labor to visit that place where expectation and harvest meet. We sometimes wonder why God uses others in the extraordinary way He does while life for most is status quo. I really am beginning to believe that faith is the factor. Too many are short sighted. Distracted, or just not using the wisdom of God available to them. There are a lot of busy souls in the Church! Activity to the brim with people trying to do something for God! But is it the right activity? Is it about what is next? I could see that the Storehouse of Jehovah’s Flame had been real busy. Busy fencing off potential, and ignoring the harvest they didn’t have to plant. Other laborers prepped the ground for them.
All God has for us to harvest is in plain sight. But we need to understand our seasons as a collective body of believers. When the house is in order as one people, rather than one personality, the Church will be what Jesus gave Himself for. When expectation doesn’t merge with knowledge and understanding, distraction easily pulls God’s people out of the point of why we cultivate, seed, and water in the first place. Otherwise, they acclimate to an endless cycle short of resolve. Short of harvest. Time and time again. It is a condition we can’t get a way from until we get it out of us. There is an epidemic, a curse in the land, where we are killing fruit before its term. This is called abortion. The Church, the body of Christ in our country, needs to take a cold hard look at why we seem to come to the threshold of movements, that are either aborted or lost at infancy. Break the curse. Trust the anointings that have brought works to term, that are anointed to do so. It takes every part of the plant to bring forth fruit. It takes every part of the Body Of Christ to do so too. Just as a pregnant woman’s condition is that she is pregnant. Not just her womb.
Harvest time is a change of routine. It often demands late nights with the combines in the fields, and early morning risings. Meals are on the move, because harvest is time sensitive.
” With out a vision my people parish. With out a vision they cast off restraints.”
Clearly, in the dream a work was planted among a people who had limited vision. While God has said one man sows, another man waters, and God gives the increase, it is also written, “Pray the Lord of the Harvest, to send laborers.” It may not be the laborers originally intended- others may walk in just in time to reap a harvest not planted in their yard. It is sad to see people lose benefits they didn’t know they had for lack of expectation, and wisdom to know their time and season. Times and seasons that sometimes shift as quickly as the shadows of eve, and then are no more!
God’s chosen vessels who have a purpose we may not understand, that come into our lives, are either utilized or rejected, we need to have the discernment to know they are a bridge for crossing. To take us where we can never go without them. Any more than the foot can be functional without the ankle. If that willing and obedient component is not realized, the Father will eventually move it out until it is realized somewhere as a significant part to the whole. That fellowship will reap the benefits, and accomplish the work. While the others that would not seek discernment to know whom God has set among them, continue to stumble in a cycle of never coming to term.
Counsel leads to acts of might as workings lead to miracles.
Walk the fields of expectation, seek to harvest that which has come to fruition. Pray that you have eyes to see, what is hidden out of view but is ready for harvest. Pray restrictions off understanding of the saints of God to remove mindsets that counter act vision, to see. To many times I’ve seen doubt and unbelief put the brakes on just short of break through. Many romance the thought to be greatly used by God, but shrink back at the threshold where mockery is intensified, and the opponents of Christ wish to lay them bare. Remembering without faith it is impossible to please God.
Many Christians go to secular websites for answers about their dreams. This often means they are consulting spiritist, psychics, and mediums, to do so. We should seek those filled with the Holy Spirit of God, to understand spiritual phenomenon, and the paranormal. None of these people can possibly have the Holy Spirit- if they say they do they are lying. Because the bible forbids their practice. We must seek Holy Spirit filled believers for counsel rather than mediums that have other spirits as their guides. The bible only sanctions gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Of 198 countries that have visited the website these listed in the photo provide the top 10 most views second to the 🇺🇸 US! The world wants to know what their dreams and visions mean! Dreams and visions are not that extraordinary to experience any more. (Joel 2) What is extraordinary is understanding what the SpiritOfGod is saying through them. It takes the gift of prophecy, discernment, interpretation, and the SpiritOfWisdom to unlock knowledge and understanding given in dreams and visions, that come from the Lord. As not all oysters have a pearl inside of them, so most dreams are the substance of mental and emotional processes. Dream interpretation is not understanding symbolism. But understanding what God is actually saying through the symbolism, and this takes prayer. A Christian dreamer can wait on God in prayer until He shows them the mystery. The Father can only be accessed through His SON the Lord Jesus Christ. That is why Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” The biggest mistake made regarding the mysteries of God, is going everywhere else to understand them, rather than to Him! As the Pharoah of Egypt, during Joseph’s time, consulted with magicians and astrologers of his dominion, Joseph was the only one that could interpret Pharoah’s dream, accurately. Because Joseph walked with God whom he was in covenant with. As it is now, the Father is in covenant with all who believe upon His Son John 3:16. About the Holy Spirit, gifts and outpourings. Acts 2 1 Cor. 12,13,14, Eph 4. Joel 2
Oh how the waster thought to come and destroy, how he sets up road blocks for pillage. But I have averted him says the Lord, I created the waster to destroy- covenant stays his hand.
Know that you are my Ambassador, my representative. As I have said, and I have given you to carry my name, and I have given you my name. This is the key of David. I am he that liveth and was dead. And behold I am alive for ever more. And I have the keys of death and of hell. Opening doors no man can shut, and shutting doors no man can open.
These signs will follow them that believe. In my name … And I have seen the mud slinging, land upon your garment, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that you have continuously determined to put on. How the enemy despises purity. I wash away reproach, I will remove (what has been cast upon you) the stain of contempt- washed in washings and renewals.
This from the water of my word as you spend time in me. Does not glory rest upon the persecuted ones? Let my spirit renew your mind, says the Lord. In me you can walk in continuous joy, that the world doesn’t understand. This is that fruit, of the first fruit cluster. Love, joy, peace … That greets one another with a holy kiss in my kingdom. You will know them by their fruits in the face of adversity. For the shield of faith distances the approach of despair. Though it come, faith is its mighty foe! See the pearl of great price? In your garment I have sewn them in the hem and borders, many; to memorialize the sacrifice in preferring me, above all else … Oh look and see- the Bride gives herself to all preperations!
Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith Jehovah.
Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thy habitations; spare not: lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes.
For thou shalt spread aboard on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall possess the nations, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth; and the reproach of thy widowhood shalt thou remember no more.
For thy Maker is thy husband; Jehovah of hosts is his name: and the Holy One of Israel is thy Redeemer; the God of the whole earth shall he be called.
For Jehovah hath called thee as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even a wife of youth, when she is cast off, saith thy God.
For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.
In overflowing wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting lovingkindness will I have mercy on thee, saith Jehovah thy Redeemer.
For this is as the waters of Noah unto me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah shall no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.
For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my lovingkindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed, saith Jehovah that hath mercy on thee.
O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will set thy stones in fair colors, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.
And I will make thy pinnacles of rubies, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy border of precious stones.
And all thy children shall be taught of Jehovah; and great shall be the peace of thy children.
In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee.
Behold, they may gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall because of thee.
Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the fire of coals, and bringeth forth a weapon for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness which is of me, saith Jehovah.
American Standard Version, 1901
I knew this encounter recorded in America’s Home Invasion (two years ago) had an astounding futuristic lesson in it. TODAY’S headlines are pointing to that season right now. A growing moral dilemma is expanding at our southern borders, causing great division among people who would normally agree, even of those in the Church. God is not a democrat or republican. He is God. The answer is corrective to a nation of lawlessness, that let greed and slavery of all kinds, replace good moral judgement. Those who have prospered and gained in this, by flooding the border with illegal aliens, have been at the helm of the ship, until recently. Still, there are those who are tirelessly working to exploit this condition at the borders to serve their own narrative, where now only the media is their helm and rudder.
As a crisis it has come to a head. Because America is being corrected for her waywardness. Making America great again is actually a disciplinarian act of God, and that includes whom He lets practice at the helm, even now. It is not easy because strongholds have been erected in the land, due to years of our disobedience and subsequent captivity. We have just recently broken out from under the jurisdiction of a foreign spirit. The gallows and rope, of a Haman kind, is still swinging in the wind. But a plot and a craft is being turned around. Let us pray that it is not only being delayed. The confrontations are not abating, they are mounting up. Were it not for the following encounter I wouldn’t know what to think! But, God has made me see His sorting hand through all of this as a prophet intercessor, as HE does for all those who set themselves to pray for a nation. America will have to right her wrongs. At the same time we have laws and borders for a reason. As we have property lines, locks, and doors. Let us learn from:
America’s Home Invasion.
My husband left the house at 5:44 am February 8, 2016. I was in our upstairs bedroom working on my website. This was very unusual because normally I’m downstairs with him every morning at this time. He came up the stairs to say good bye, before heading out the door on a trip he was taking. I heard the front door close in the living room behind him … continue
Jesus taught us our resistance and dealings with the devil were seasonal. After he tempted Jesus in the wilderness, scripture tells us that Satan departed from him for a season. Lately, I’ve been reminded of that from our battles with Python. It’s another day, in another season, with another work; and almost right on cue the infiltrator comes again. But the victorious saints of God are not defeated, nor overcome!
From: The Violent Take It By Force – by deana barnes
Part II What Lies Beneath
In part one I show the reader photographs of a tree limb that had been overcome by an invasive vine that had twisted around the trunk of the tree and embedded itself deep into the tree branch. This is a prophetic illustration of the effects of the demon spirit Python. A powerful spirit that seeks to infiltrate Apostolic moves of God (sent to establish the new) to constrict their growth and divert their purpose. We see this spirit addressed in Acts 16:16.
Though divination was how Python manifested through the servant woman. The nature of Python restricts, constricts, and distorts; squeezing the life, and the breath of God, from its victims. It destroys the true composition, and form of what the new work of God is suppose to be. The original design that God created. The ravages of Python leaves behind it the debris field of what could have been. IN THE LIVES OF INDIVIDUALS, and all to often moves of God. We see the deceptive operation of the Python spirit in Acts 16:16 where the damsel who was possessed with a spirit of divination followed Paul’s team who was in the city to bring an apostolic work, in Philippi. Although, the female servant seemed to be there to encourage their endeavors, publicly proclaiming their intentions, even declaring God as THE MOST HIGH, yet, she was possessed of a spirit of divination, called Pythos in Greek. Scriptural proof that not all that glitters is Gold.
image in the world we live in today she would have made it into the board of directors, or appointed a deaconess, but Paul discerned the source of inspiration, and the plot of the enemy. PYTHON was there to restrict and distort, the move of God. To choke it out, replacing it with the power already in control in that city. When ever you feel a Christian gathering is being constricted, and the Holy Spirit quenched, or a service being diverted away from true worship, this is the work of Python, an evil spirit that joins with every demonic player of the power of the air to be a spiritual counterfeit, snaking its way into the sanctuary of God. This evil spirit may not even possess an individual, but could be oppressing them. The best way I have found to stop this spirit from quenching the work of the Holy Spirit is to do exactly what Paul did, stop what you’re doing, turn around and drive out that spirit in the name of Jesus, until it is gone. We need to cut off the head of operations, of Python. In this city the very thing that had it under control, sent out an agent of Satan to bring an Apostolic work into its control. I like to think that the damsel possessed of this spirit became a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, a sister in the Church of Phillipi.
Those under the control of an unclean spirit, will do one of two things, they will run towards the anointing that breaks the yoke, or away from it, depending on whether they want to be free or not. That is why those under control of unclean spirits habitually disappear out of a meeting when ever the anointing begins to fall, had they wanted deliverance the human spirit would have willed themselves into the presence of God. This is why we would see Christ approached by screaming devils, the human spirit, wanting freedom brought them into the presence of God willing to be set free. Had the demons had their way, they would have stayed away. The Lord showed me this in illustration when we attended a Church service where the presence of God fell mightily upon the people who were lost in worship. The Lord spoke to me to observe, the outer hub began to teem with nervous energy while the foyer began to fill with people. No crying demons just chatty, nervous, and distracted people. It is said we need to clean up our alters, this may be true, but we need to clean up our foyers, and parking lots, as well. To often the outer court influences inner court experiences. Even shutting them down. The outer court should have no influence whatsoever, on the moves of the Spirit. A climate not conducive for luke warm fish will not attract them. We don’t have to lift a finger to clean up the altar when we let the fire of God do it for us.
At Your Feasts, In your Presbytery
Notice in scripture the manifested demons actually bowed down and worshipped Jesus. The stronger, more powerful demons, who operate in those who are in authority, the perfectly possessed, you can say, are quite capable to withstand the anointing, and function around it, because they have influence to shift atmosphere that is compatible for them, they can do that with manipulative powers of agreement to quench the Holy Spirit, what they cannot stand is exposure. That is why, so often, the Jewish leaders opposed Christ, vehemently, when he exposed their wickedness. It is more disturbing when those under the control of Python go undetected, slipping into leadership, and the various administrations of God’s house, to put it under a death grip, doing what ever it can do to shut down the atmosphere of worship, that releases the power of God that will expose its darkness and drive it out. Pythos is an operative of Satan that seduces the un-discerning making them admirers aņd followers by divination, when it has control in the hierarchy of a church it would never support pure abandonment in worship, but begin to pull attention to itself, less the power of God is released. A genuine move of God almost always requires one to go somewhere different than they have ever gone before, in repentance, and committment. History reveals to us that the earmarks of an out pouring are extended, hilarious, and abandoned, worship. The kind that the Michaels of mockery jealously despise, of whom the Davids of dance defy, in the joy that the Holy presence of God is brooding over His people.
We have seen Pythos, find its way through various aspects of church functionality that seems to have a hand in changing the course of a meeting, or interrupt the atmosphere away from worship, away from the manifest presence of God, away from the word. Python goes after “breath” it operates best when given voice, what ever pythos can do to “chill” the atmosphere, taking “breath” or giving voice to redirect flows and currents, away from anointed word, and ministry; but more so, away from worship that brings in the manifest presence of God. One reason that would be is because anointed worship charges the atmosphere with power on a corporate level, taking the focus off of one man, and directing it to the Lord of Hosts, who, in turn, pours out His Spirit upon the body of Christ, corporately, who ultimately, is whom God has appointed to manifest the manifold wisdom of God. This kind of power released into the Church on a corporate level not only exposes principalities of darkness, but defeats them, and by the nature of true worship destroys the influence of LEVIATHAN (to twist) who is king of ALL the SONS of PRIDE. Does it not say with the High praises of God in our mouth and a two edged sword in our hands we will bind kings with fetters of iron?
Ephesians 3:8-11 … to me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things… His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.

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

America, full of the knowledge of God. But do we know HIM?
I had a dream. A guy in his 30’s with an influence over young people was sitting with what seemed like a team of peers getting ready to do bible study ministry. They actually had those backward priest collars on, but the collars were broken at the voice box, or Adam’s apple. To be blunt they all had a frat brat air about them. Sorry, don’t know a better description. Any way, young sort of prideful theologians. I walked up to them in the corner of a very large library, in a place that was part of a vast open mall of sanctuaries, and auditoriums; a lot going on at once, like every Christian I ever knew was in this *mall, representing Christian America. About the time I approached this frat pack of theologians, I heard the lead guy say, “Yea, we’re going to go speak in tongues.” I walked up to him and said, “Cool, so you’re Spirit filled?”
Act 2:4 And they were all FILLED with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Speaking in tongues is evidence of being Spirit filled.)
I caught him off guard. He said, “Uhh no”, and looked around at his friends like where did SHE come from? Which I get all the time; anyway, to the young indignant one I said, “Well do you want to be Spirit filled?” He got real nervous and started looking around at his friends like, this woman is crazy! I’m thinking, what religious universe have these people been locked up in? I told him, “You can joke around about a lot of things, and maybe get away with making fun of people who pray in tongues, but you should never allow yourself or anyone else around you, to joke about the Holy Ghost.”
Hebrews 10: 29
Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, shall be thought them worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, by which he was sanctified, a common thing, and has done insult unto the Spirit of grace?
At that moment I heard a crack of thunder and could see a huge flat screen TV showing a weather report of the United States.
I saw clusters of storms light up the area above various cities and states across the US. The map was green like spring but this dream came last fall. Washington State really lit up in the western part of it, I thought of the Seattle area. The other cluster of storms that stood out seemed to be in the lower Missouri, Mississippi region. They lit up more than other places lighting up all over the map, they seemed like prolonged electrical storms.
America is too common with Holy things!
I thought the young men to be lacking in the fear of the Lord. If we as Christian ministers were priests of the old testament altar, many of us would be dragged out by the feet with shepherds crooks. Embolden to blaspheme, tossing out railing accusations against dignitaries, mocking the Holy Ghost, mocking His servants, mocking His prophets; being scornful, and disrespectful. Christians acting despicably calling themselves ambassadors of Christ, but they are brutish, narcissistic, embellishers, clouds with out rain; throwing their titles around for entitlements. And their degrees, as if that is what qualifies them for the work of the ministry. When being qualified comes, only, by setting ourselves apart, in seeking the face of God. surrendering to obedience; Relying upon His ability, having nothing to do with our own. Living a Godly life, hating even the garment, (the outer accessories) of Christian life, spotted by the flesh. I thought of all the churches who have clerics that wear the white band, to set themselves apart, but these were not set apart in their speech, revealing the condition of their heart. The white band broken at their voice box.
Prayers of repentance and judgments in the land.
I don’t believe some of these places, I saw in the dream, are more wicked than others, but they are more susceptible to trouble than others, when wickedness in the Church reaches its tipping point. While others have judgements poised against them, it is up to us to pray!
Narrow the way.
In our world, moods, opinions, and attitudes, can shift in waves over night. Because we are bonded together by social media and the internet. A story or news item portrayed in just the right way, can sway the masses, left or right. We can glorify God one moment, and grieve the Holy Spirit in the very next breath, by agreeing with false portrayals of what is suppose to be truth! Insolence, and the lack of the fear of the Lord, and the mishandling of sacred things, have moved Christian America to lean the wrong way. Being to common and careless with the mysteries and treasures of the king dom, joking foolishly, the bible calls it foolish jesting.
Straight is the gate and narrow is the way, that leads to life and few there will be who find it. Leaning left or leaning right is not the way! Wide is the gate and broad is the path to destruction and many there’ll be who will find it. Mathew 7:13-14 HIS way, in all things, is the hidden path found through Christ. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life!
When the Holy Spirit lifts.
Where HE is not, there goes the voice of warning, there goes all the gifts of perception, and fore-site, there goes the voice of one calling in the wilderness, making straight the paths of the Lord, there goes the ones holding back judgments.
The Lord has departed.
When He departs He takes the lamp stands with Him. His sheep know His voice they will go out and be lead into green pastures. It is one of the most silent mass moves of God on earth, when sheep are lead out. They are taken out of places where Christ in them, manifesting, is rejected. The good shepherd leads them out like sheep! You could gaze at a hill covered with them. Bend down and tie your shoe laces, zip your coat, and look back up, just to see that the sheep on a distant hill are no where to be seen. The remnant that is attached to (no thing or place but Him) go where he goes. They are always the ones found with Him. Seemingly, vanished in thin air, when He moves them out. When Jesus removes His lamp stands from a church, His people in that place that know Him, know when the SHEPHERD’S voice is gone, Jesus said, “My sheep know my voice and a stranger they will not follow.” His mercy never fails and no matter what or where- whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. He remains a very present help in times of trouble as long as we have breath. We need Him now more than ever, and we need the blessed Holy Spirit of comfort and truth. The Christian mall of America needs to understand the Spirit of the Fear Of the Lord. Let us who pray, do so.
Isaiah 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge, and the spirit of the fear of the Lord.
Call a Solemn Assembly!
The young men in the dream were found in the library. Ever learning and never coming to the truth. All the books in that library didn’t bring them to the truth they needed, to live a blameless life. And brazen they were on how they handled God’s Holy Spirit and His Saints. Would that these young theologians would be as the twelve, Paul met in Ephesus! Teachable!
Paul was received by a group of disciples that only knew John’s baptism!
And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, AND prophesied. And all the men were about twelve.
John’s Baptism: Water baptism is a baptism of repentance, otherwise described as John’s baptism. Until this day many are only baptised in this baptism, rejecting the fact there is another baptism often received by the laying on of hands. It’s the baptism John referred to as the baptism of the Holy Ghost and of Fire, that Yeshuah baptizes us with.
Even during Paul’s ministry years after the Ascension of Christ, there were still believers in John’s baptism only; as there are today.
In water baptism we are publicly repenting of our sins, as a witness to all that we are dead, buried, and raised, with Christ, as a new creation; old things are passed away and behold all things becoming new. As we go down and come up in the water, we display that. Confessing our sins is the beginning of our journey with Jesus; if we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sin, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. The water depicts that cleansing, as well. Coming up from the water sheds light on the understanding that we are a new creation, a new man or woman; therefore, we should live our lives as dead to our old nature. This is called repentance which simply means to ” turn away from.” Water baptism is not what saves us but it is what describes our salvation, and is a public testimony of our decision for Christ, following HIS example in water baptism. As we look forward to the redemption of our bodies, in the hope of the resurrection. Still, new testament saints called it John’s baptism.
Life in the letter only, is like having a sailboat in a waterless sea.
Jesus’s baptism is a Spirit and fire baptism, received by the laying on of hands. Or by faith in believing upon Jesus while hearing God’s word. It is an event that is not silent or without demonstration, in other words you WILL KNOW when you become Spirit filled! We will see that in the passage below. The Holy Spirit baptism can come before water, and even during water baptism. But, not before repentance or a decision to follow Christ, is made. It is an event we yield to in receiving. The Holy Spirit and fire baptism gives us what we need to walk in power, be purified, and taught in truth; have supernatural comfort in separations and sorrows; and a supernatural boldness to testify in the face of persecutions. The Holy Spirit disperses supernatural giftings among the saints, beginning with unknown tongues and branching out from there. If the church can’t get tongues right, the least of all the gifts, how will they get anything else right? As it is with our own tongue in conversation. Tame that tongue that sets off the fires of hell, and everything else falls into line. Get the gift of tongues operating fluently in God’s divine order, let that ministry rise up, and unbelievers will come into belief, for the scripture says that the gift of tongues is for the unbeliever. We can be believers in unbelief over many things. Tongues interpreted is a sign. Let the heavenly language flow! Building up your most Holy faith by praying in the Holy Ghost! As Paul said, “I will pray in the Spirit, and I will pray in my understanding, also.” All that believe the Holy Spirit comes with out demonstration, have very little demonstration of power in their own life. It is the same for those that believe it is God’s will for them to be sick. Or that God does not always desire his people to be well. It never seems to be God’s will for them to be well, in their lives. However, those who believe He wants his people to be healthy, and whole, have more instances of healing in their lives. Yet, after all we have been given to know Christ and Him crucified, and the great benefits of our salvation, many are still not advancing past these elementary teachings of faith.
Let us go on from the elementary teachings of baptism, and the laying on of hands …
Getting it right and moving on,
Hebrews 6:1-2 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
Like the theologians in my dream, and even those in Pentecost – many Spirit filled Churches are stuck on tongues. So stuck they don’t even want them to manifest any more. This is a sure sign of immaturity in the church, as much as it is when people are not understanding gifts of the Holy Spirit of God, or the fivefold ministry. When an assembly is too focused (against or for) manifestations of the Spirit, they are weak and immature. For these things are given to supply every need, that each part supplies. If no one understands the ministries set among us as it is written in Ephesians 4, to equip the saints; we will not grow up into the head, nor shall we ever be unified. For it is clearly written in this passage that this is what these ministries do. If all you have in your assembly is a pastor, then run!! You will never mature in Christ! For this same reason we can never expect to be unified with any who call themselves Christian, that rejects the baptism of the Lord Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit and with fire. Of them who say the apostles and prophets are no more. For it takes these anointings along with the rest, to accomplish unification, by equipping the saints, who can then mature into the head!
Various denominations can intermingle all day long, but all they usually do is agree to disagree about who, mainly? The person and endtimes ministry of the Holy Ghost! The only way a people can come together in Christ of one mind, is by the power of the Holy Spirit! I will never agree NOT to ask any one, if they have received the Holy Spirit since they have believed, in order to keep the peace! I am not ashamed of Him, the Holy Spirit of God.
Churches get stuck on the next level after the in filling, and I mean many!
If all we can do is focus on what our parts are, and what they can do, such as the function of the hand and foot … How can we focus on just being whole and useable unto God? Books and DVDs, podcasts and websites, classes, upon classes, all about being what you are called to be, rather than doing what you are called to do!
Not only that, but teaching people there is not a Spirit fire baptism is more than just an error. It is encouraging the saints of God to obey the great commission with out being endued with POWER from on High. Jesus said, wait until you are! Any minister that calls themself a follower of Christ, that rejects the baptism of the Holy Spirit is ill equipped, I don’t care how many certificates and honorary doctorates they have! Water and Spirit baptism are separate experiences that can happen in rapid succession, but the Holy Spirit ALWAYS comes after a decision for Christ is made. Whether it’s a matter of seconds or days. Seek all He has for you! Be faithful in the little things, God will trust to you more! When trouble comes will Christian America be able to weather storms with out the help of the comforter and the Spirit of truth? Without being endued with power from on high? Will teachings against the work of the Holy Spirit of God prevail in America? Will the youth of tomorrow have no need for Him? But, actually cross the line treating Him and God’s servants with contempt? Pray it won’t be so. Warn them. Warn them. Warn them.
Acts 10:30- AKJV
The Gentiles Hear the Good News
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that fears him, and works righteousness, is accepted by him. The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) That word, I say, you know, … How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly; Not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of the quick and dead. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whoever believes in him shall receive remission of sins.
How much more do we need the same Holy Ghost and power Jesus walked in!
(Joel 2:28-32; John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Acts 2:1-13; Acts 19:1-7)
While Peter yet spoke these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
What Malls mean In dreams.
*malls in dreams (when symbolic), speak to a trending/collection of thought, belief, or popular world views, and/ or attitudes of the times; of a town, city, democracy, community, region, or nation- depending on the location of the mall. A conglomeration of occupations, thought, and/or practices; all under one roof. Malls assemble commonality of tastes, among a variety of goods, and services; and reflect acceptable norms of society. Right wrong or indifferent. Depending on the nature of a mood or message being relayed. In this dream Christendom in America was being reflected in all the ways it exists. The focus was upon the up and coming bible ministers, full of book training, embarking upon their ministry, flanked with arrogance and hostility towards the Holy Spirit. In a time where the wisdom of God is counted as foolishness to men, and the foolishness of men, is wisdom unto God. They are ever learning and never coming to the truth. Under the same roof of us all! A powerless gospel puts God’s people in peril when storms rise! With out the Spirit of God, and the Spirit of the fear of the Lord, bible study training is a sailboat with no wind, in a waterless sea.
Note: A specific mall known by the dreamer may very well just mean, that mall. For dream coaching click on the CONTACT US! Link for questions.
The Dreamer is standing in the foyer of her home looking at a beautiful glass windowed door, the door is blocked by a wood panel and taped. Another door is in the foyer in the inner part that is in the same condition, blocked in the same way.
Dear A——-, this is a coaching segment on symbolism that is in your dream and not an official interpretation. If it were an out right interpretation I would know by the Spirit of God how to apply the symbolism more specifically to what is going on in your life. That doesn’t mean what I have written here can’t be connected to your heart by the Holy Spirit while you read this. In fact, it usually works out that way.
A foyer is a place of readiness. In the foyer you are getting prepared to answer the door or exit through it. So it is a staging place in readiness for change. Doors often speak of opportunities that bring change. Change that enters into your environment or that you yourself would move into.
Built into the door, in your case, is a capacity to reveal to you what is beyond it. Normally, we must wait to open a door to know what is happening on the other side. This door has a window so in your going out, and coming in, you should have some ability for prophetic insight regarding your life encounters through the Holy Spirit, before you actually experience what you’re going to be doing. Remember, the revelation of Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy. He is the light of the world. If the window is ornately obscured glass, it would reference prophetic impressions. These impressions require waiting on the Lord for more revelation. In other words your gift of prophecy relies more on the ambiance of light and shadows. Impressions of the Spirit. Clear glass windows providing clear viewing, would speak to the seer anointings that have more clarified prophetic encounters. So these differences in the type of window in your dream are reflective of the prophetic gift type.
Regardless, your door that is designed to let light in, is obscured. It is a man made blockage carefully cut and taped. Is it inside or out? If the blockage is on the inside of the door than the obstruction is coming from with in. If on the outside than with out. This is your revelatory giftings being blocked by man made obstructions. Church doctrine, religious teaching, opinions of people- from where ever it comes, you have the power to “peel it off”. You can incorporate your dream language into prayer by saying,
” I want these obstructions removed from these beautiful windows that are suppose to let the light in, and allow me to see, accurately, in the way God has designed for me, and I will pursue the activation of revelatory giftings in my and home, through the promise of the Father and His son Jesus Christ.”
At times the natural and spiritual entwines, so because obscured vision is a security issue, check your natural security systems, in the home, as well. I’ve had dreams of doors being open at night, and actually discovered a faulty lock on our back door. Just a reminder that dreams can sometimes uncover real life problems and are not always just spirit or soul matters. If you have any questions feel free to continue corresponding with us. In Christ.
Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others weigh what is said. I Corinthians 14:39
In other words always seek conformation from more than one source when accepting prophecy for interpretation of dreams and visions.

Thanks so much for interpretation and yes I will seek opinion but I believe this was quite correct. I’ve been told many times about my seer anointing and have a deep hunger to fulfill gifting.
The lord gave me a picture.
I saw a lovely Christian woman with beautiful earings on. The earings were diamond and ruby. She was very elegant. She was sitting with her head slightly down, and I could see (on her other ear) all the jewels had been removed. She took them off to talk on the phone. I thought to my self they were her Crown Jewels. I looked down at her hand and saw an old land line phone. I saw how she took her “Crown Jewels” off to have a conversation. I remembered back in the day ladies would take their earings off to talk on the phone. I said, “Lord, What are you showing me here?”
Crown Jewels belong to the House of the Royals. They come out of the palace vaults to be worn by Kings and Queens for special occasions. As Christians we are of a Royal Priesthood.
1 Peter 2:9 King James Version (KJV)
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his everlasting light.
This Lady, this beautiful woman, represents all of us in Christ! His Bride.
The special event where we wear our Crown Jewels, is our salvation that we celebrate every day of our lives.
Hebrews 2 :1-3
Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have HEARD, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was CONFIRMED unto us by them that HEARD him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and GIFTS [treasures] of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will ..
She removed her Crown Jewels to have a conversation through an old land line phone.
Now days, we talk through the airways. In this vision airways would represent a spiritually uplifted conversation. But this was an earth bound line of communication. It was earthy. We always need to remember where we come from, and who we are, in Christ. Ladies and Gentlemen of the Kingdom, can you remember the last conversation you had, where you actually stepped down from your blessed position in Christ Jesus, just to meet eye to eye?
I think we all can! The Lord doesn’t want us to shed off what He paid such a high price for, that HE now has adorned us with. The (robe of righteousness, and mantle of our call) over lines of communication that would be cut off by the other end, if we let ourselves be genuinely His, in the sight of all men.
Sadly, many tolerate conditions imposed upon them by unbelievers, and Christians in unbelief.
Desiring that we edit our conversation to leave out what makes them feel uncomfortable. Do you have a relationship like that?
Whether the land line represents worldly conversations, or Christian communication that rejects the treasure we possess knowing Him; or is filled with gossip and tale bearing- we need to DISCONNECT that line!
Should we veil the sparkle of our Lord’s eye? Should we cap the flame of HIS Spirit to enjoy what we think is Christian fellowship? Should we hide the lamp of our salvation under a table?
Hunger for God appreciates every drop of joy that emanates from HIS people! Every ounce of love come from the Father, in all its forms; fruits and gifts of the Spirit, mantles and mandates of the KING! Let your light so shine among men! Fellowship is like a flowing river, it inspires; it spurs one another on to GOOD works. It should not be competitive, but rejoices in the truth, and seeing Jesus aglow in others.
Relationships that push against that, are earthbound religious connections that have no need, or desire, for more of Jesus. Their commonality may be Christianity but it may not be the LORDSHIP of Jesus Christ in their life. They may enjoy talking about CHURCH but initiating a Spirit filled, or Spirit led conversation, becomes awkward or one sided. The believer often feels like they just cannot connect with this person that is suppose to be a Christian. They will often find themselves compromising to keep the peace or keep the connection. The earth bound conversation the Bride of Christ was having over the phone- required HER to bow to a lesser authority than the one whom has redeemed her. Any relationship that pulls us into a soulish line of communication is exactly that, soulish.
We need to disconnect from lines of communication that are not Holy Spirit inspired; and rather, upgrade to a connection that benifits the thirsty and hungry soul that needs what we have, or shares in it. Kindred relationships that, simply, love us at our best! As we should them. Desperate souls soak in God’s love! Fellowship with the poor in spirit, is spending time with some one that never has enough of Jesus! Mathew 5:3 says, “For theirs is the kingdom of God.” They shall obtain it in their hunger, and humility.
Another type of relationship that turns into an earth bound connection is one that has a political nature to it. I’ve said this before and it is absolutely true. Any one effected by the power of peer pressure, is under political control. Entertaining that land line is a land mine of compromise, that always leads to hypocrisy. False humility, and shallow relationships, because the Saint of God was forced to take off their Crown Jewels in order to even CONNECT. It’s a pay to play kind of deal, that secures power over unified assembles in their fellowship and worship, supporting those that comply to its control, and pulls down those that don’t; neutralizing, if not paralyzing Spirit filled praise and worship that brings down the glory of God, in our meetings. Often times resistance against the moves of God are not from with out, but from with in.
Peer pressure rarely swings anyone into a positive zone. This is why we know it is usually demonic oppression behind it.
The woman I saw was holding the phone in her hand, by the twisting cord, as it dangled to her side. We need to hang up on bad company and disconnect with that old religious python, that hates the Crown Jewels of the people of God. Relentlessly, dissecting, and debating, the word of truth with, “Has God said?” Let your light shine and reconnect with the salt and light of the earth. Avoiding vain babblings.
Another thing we may be in the habit of doing, is taking a step down from our position in Christ, to give ear to counselors, that have less counsel than we do! Don’t tolerate cords that keep you bound to a line of communication that is spiritually bankrupt! That wastes your time and life. Never cover your lamp with the prideful lying shades of false humility. It is a temptation come from an accusation of Satan, designed to side line the Saints of God, every time they try to step out in obedience to their gift and call! That old Pharasutical remark, even Jesus had to endure, is implied by that prince and power of the air, saying “Who do you think YOU are, we know where you come from?” Familiar with the short comings of the saints but never familiar with their gift and anointing. Aware of their humanity but resistant to the Spirit of Christ in them.
Therefore do not be partakers with them
Ephesians 5:6-13 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God on the children of disobedience. Be not you therefore partakers with them. For you were sometimes in darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatever does make manifest is light.
Don’t take your Crown Jewels off to satisfy a religious spirit, who has rejected the wonderful details of their own great salvation. We were born to bring GOD glory. Wear the garments of HIS praise, be of HIS Royal Priesthood, peculiar. The event is your Salvation. The Crown Jewels are the gifts of His promise, and graces HE has adorned YOU with! The light reflected from what HE has given you, is HIS light. It will draw to Him them that love the LIGHT.
A few days ago I was pruning back the over growth of our grape vines. So many really good looking runs had to go. Reminding me of the careful, loving hands of God, that prunes us back for reasons of fruitfulness, and viability. To save our lives, and to ensure kingdom productivity. This means He does everything in His power to finish the good work that he has begun in us, as the author and finisher of our faith. From the faithful son to the prodigal. His goal is to bring us home, that we can abide with Him, in His House.
God the Father is the Lord of the harvest, and resides over this work of salvation being wrought in the earth. Him who desires that no man perish; but, that all will come into the knowledge of the son. At the time that I was pruning my grape vines, this article began to trend on my website. So I’m taking that as a sign it’s a word for the season. – God bless.
For The Sake Of Fruitfulness
Recently, the Lord gave me a picture. I saw a tree, it was in great shape. A nice full tree with viable limbs and thick with foliage.
As I was observing this tree all of a sudden a branch grew out from one of the limbs, and as it grew I began to notice that it was a dead branch. Now how can a dead branch grow?
Read: For The Sake Of Fruitfulness by clicking the link below, the article will answer the following questions, and more.
1.What is the destruction of the flesh?
2. What exactly are works of the flesh?
3. When does mercy end and judgment begins?
And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem: When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the middle thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. And the LORD will create on every dwelling place of mount Zion, and on her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night …
And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and from rain.
He that endures to the end, shall be saved.
According to the encyclopedia most modern ponies were once horses that developed a small stature because they lived on the margins of livable horse habitat. A pony will always be a pony but originally it was a horse. Now bred to be different breeds. A pony is a dwarfed horse because it lived in an environment that could not sustain it. So it adapted. A horse in dreams often represent power. In this dream I’m about to share, remember, it ends well for them who endure to the end. Who yields to their maker, that He can draw out from them, the power of their potential, in Christ.
There are religious strongholds in the land that dwarf the development of God’s people by quenching and resisting the Holy Spirit. Having a form of Godliness but denying the power there of. Clouds, the bible says, without rain. This condition creates a religious environment, that cannot sustain Christian growth and true maturity. Rather, it is producing the faint of heart, and unprepared disciples, that will have difficulty withstanding days of difficulty. Simply because their full potential has never had the opportunity to develop past getting saved, and on to abundant life training. Where our circumstances don’t dictate to us how we live our life in Christ, but our life in Christ demands circumstances to bow and serve Him. All should be filled and endued with power from on high. Acts 2, all should know their authority as believers. Quenching the Spirit in our meetings creates dependence, not disciples. Few anointings have the opportunity to rise up, and be trained in Spirit led training. God calls them out. Generations of a powerless gospel have produced a sub species of Christian that cannot break from its mind set, but for God! If a pastor wants to know the health of his congregation, and their strength and trust in God, all he has to do is count those medicated on pills, struggling with sin, and addictions; those living on government assistance, and the in firmed. If a congregation is sitting under the restraints of an institutionalize Christianity, there will be many in that state of living. I’m not trying to be harsh or judgmental here, but we have to look at the truth in regard to the condition of the Church. Who and what she is dependent on. Christ Church should not be medicated, broke, and dieing.
Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?
Only God can stretch a horse out of a pony. But they will have to leave the pony farm, to become their full potential. Ponies are desired for Children. They are not desired for battle. If we as pastors are raising up those that will endure to the end, that is commendable. Let us go further, and seek to train them to run with endurance, to the end; this great race set before us.
Zechariah 10:3 (AMP) My anger is kindled against the shepherds [who are not true shepherds], And I shall punish the male goats (leaders); For the LORD of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, And will make them like His majestic horse in battle.
I had a prophetic dream after a believer’s meeting in our home town. I feel that in it is a word for believers who live in areas of the Bible Belt. My phone rang sitting on the night table, (like it wasn’t a dream) and I picked it up and there was a loud beast of a voice on the other end screeching at me. I knew it was a rulership of darkness over the area, and we must have rattled its cage the night before. I knew this had something to do with our intercession for the city. I couldn’t make out any words, the call came from main street downtown. While the voice continued screeching, I knew I needed to keep talking, and speaking the word, and I could tell the teachers anointing was in it. The voice on the phone seemed to be the embodiment, of all the push back felt in this area since the Lord’s assignment 8 years ago. After quite a while the voice tamed down and became more and more human sounding, and I began to make out the words it was saying.
The short of it was that a demonic controller named RIFT, come out from the root of rebellion, was raging against our intercession, and ministry of the spoken word, over the phone! A prince and power of the air! The voice was very animated, and boastful. Very opinionated, and letter of the law, while acting as an illegal operative, against God’s people. Wise in its own eyes, while an ignorant form of bible knowledge poured out of RIFT’s mouth, and it was divisive. Rift’s human agents resist the Holy Spirit, spread legalism, and seed discord.
1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness as idolatry.
All I could think of was that the end game for those bound by this darkness was under developed christians, dwarfed in their potential by being made deaf, dumb, and blind. A spirit of rebellion that found a place to become a stronghold in a deeply divided land. A land with a church on every corner. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, or divination.
The night before we were praying, and repenting, and repenting for God’s people, even mentioning ancient divisions so intense that blood was spilled on the ground. Where there is division and strife there is every evil work. If strongholds of God are not lifting oppression off the land and establishing Christ, the Living Word, then darkness remembers its abode. The church cannot retreat with out devils seeking back their haunts. Seven times with seven more. If divisions plagued the land before, they will again, until that power is broken. Spirits move in because ground is lost, not taken. Jesus said OCCUPY until I come. Not regress. When evil spirits trespass it is time to remind the enemy of our inheritance, that we have one, and walk in it.
As I was on the phone I walked the five miles to town towards where the phone caller was calling from, decreeing the WORD the whole time. Until I came to a fuel station, and stood near a gas pump, and saw a gas tank-truck start to tip over. Right at a CONVENIENT store, where they sold fuel. Think about it. This voice of rebellion was still running its mouth. I cried out, run!
The fuel station exploded. It was like I went down to see a fire ignite right there where that Satanic stronghold called me from. It was there I snatched from the flames two living beings. Fire poured out to the ground like a river. I saved what I could so that it wouldn’t be destroyed by the fire, and escaped into a steel walled building. It had steel, riveted doors, and concrete. It was a fire proof shelter, and I headed up to the second floor. I saw a huge garbage disposal. It “contained” the fire as flames rolled in from outside. Burning trash only, and the place was like a furnace. The consuming fire from the fuel station, was transformed into a refining fire, as the fire proof structure brought controls to the inferno, burning trash only.

“I have come to cast fire on the earth; and how I wish that it were already kindled!”
There were others there nearer to the furnace withstanding the flames. Even closer than I. They were operating equipment that kept the fire contained, burning trash only. They were intercessors, and Angels. I felt bad for the two animals I saved from the fire. A pony and bunny, because in some ways I brought them closer to the heat. Even though they were saved from the fire. The pony was very uncomfortable. The fire wasn’t effecting me, but the bunny passed out. The two are a picture of how important it is to make ourselves ready, so we can endure to the end. So we won’t be the faint of heart, but rather actively involved as end times intercessors. What good are we if we pass out having little courage, or like the pony, trying so hard to bear the heat, but barely able to even move? The intercessors, interceding in the furnace room, narrowed the burning down to refuse only.
We have only a short time left to contend for ground, that it become a habitat for growth. That God can pull the horse out of the pony, no longer stunted by a powerless religion.
“I [the Lord] have set you as an assayer [O Jeremiah] and as a tester [of the ore] of My people, That you may know and analyze their acts.” They are all the worst [kind] of [stiff-necked, godless] rebels, Going around spreading slander. They are [not gold and silver ore, but] bronze and iron; They are all corrupt.
The bellows blow fiercely,
The lead is consumed by the fire;
In vain they continue refining,
But the wicked are not separated and removed. They call them rejected silver [only dross, without value], Because the Lord has rejected them. ( They are burning dross only).
Because the seed fell on rocky, weedy, shallow ground.
The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’
We have to break out of what confines us, always seeking for more of God. Being so hungry and thirsty for the bread and water of life, that we break through the four walls of false religion. Pressing in to the upward call of God. Not allowing ourselves to become acclimated to a culture or environment that quenches the Holy Spirit ever again. This would restrict anyone’s spiritual growth. John, who water baptized, said Jesus will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire. Continue to:
Seek and you shall find, Knock and the DOOR shall be opened to you. Ask and you shall receive. – Mathew 7:7
12/28/2017 Formally titled: A City In Asia
Proverbs 22:3 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished.
Prophetic warning for a city somewhere in Asia.
In a dream I was a westerner in an Asian city. Let me describe this city to you. It was an area like an older downtown. Very active with a lot of people coming and going. There were a few Caucasian’s there, I could say from America
but I don’t know, nothing I saw gave me a clue from where they came. I’m thinking, perhaps, English is not a barrier. These were not, necessarily, tourists. I came out of my apartment down some narrow stairs to the street, it wasn’t a new building, but well kept-up with clean side walks. Things seemed close and compacted together. There was nothing that looked third world around me. But the street seemed to be teeming with market activity. Lots of food venders and restaurants. In this dream those that lived in (what looked like a down town) made it a habit to step outside and procure meals for the day.
The open market had all kinds of fresh food, and even pre-made noodles. The vender would pull up a measure and bag them for the recipient to go warm them up later at home for a meal. Also, I could just walk across the street and go into a café and eat there, instead. In fact, this was what I had just done before stopping at the market place. Also, it appeared to be a pedestrian dominated area. I noticed the outdoor market was in the sun. It seemed the street was not in deep shade of high rises, nor was it dank, or smoggy. I didn’t see signs of impoverishment. I found my self fourth in line to purchase something from a vender. I noticed I was wearing a bright orange t-shirt. I saw a few other westerners wearing these shirts. It was a shorts friendly day outside. I never wear orange and I never eat noodles. I don’t wear a watch and I am female. So, I’m not myself in this dream. I have never been any where in an Asian country. I did think I could be some where in Hong Kong, but I know better than to assume things like that because I have been mistaken before. I saw the mall massacre in Nairobi, Kenya just 24 hours before it occurred, September 21, 2013; but thought I was in Syria because of days spent praying for that region, but I was in Nairobi in the aftermath of a mall attack. When I saw the news photos of the building where it happened, I knew then it was Nairobi. I’m not going to do that again. Nevertheless, my mind may not have known the place but God knew and prayers went up, I’m sure less happened there than was planned because of the saints of God who pray for this world. I would have done better to describe the floor tiling in the mall, and the landscape out doors. I have to say if the Lord wanted me to know He would have told me, for He has.
Again, I’m being detailed to shed light on prophetic processes.
Anyway, the people native to this place were Asians and lighter skinned than say people of Cambodia or Thailand. As far as westerners and the people native to this area there were no other cultural differences in dress, mostly casual to business casual on this day. More like Saturday go to market casual … In the dream I received my goods from the market and turned to the building, where my apartment was, to take home, for dinner, later.
This is when I began to hear a narrative run through my mind as it were from the Father. He said, “What would you do if something happened and you would not be able to collect your meal from these each day?” The thought stunned me because I realized my dependency on the vendors and cafes’. That really I didn’t have any store to speak of, food or water, that would last more than just a day. I wondered at my recklessness in such a world we live in. I began to think of scenarios that would suddenly stop commerce, and felt the panic of such a thing. The scene changed and I was in a crisis. I didn’t see destruction. But the venders and shoppers were gone. The businesses were closed. The dream ended with my character, back before the crisis putting together an emergency kit and stocking his cupboards. Some items gathered were light for flight and non cumbersome.
When I woke up I knew the orange t-shirt meant a warning for foreigners in this place. Particularly, those clearly of the Caucasian race, I don’t know why other foreign races were not pointed out.
Orange in nature and in the civilized world is used to warn. Why they were wearing orange may be because being non native born, without family in the area, they would be more at risk. Being caucasian clearly pointed out one as foreign. Public opinion can turn quickly in politically tumultuous times. For example when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Japanese Americans were taken to concentration camps for national security purposes. I’m also thinking that the age group in the dream, if they were Americans, they have never had an interruption of basic food supplies in their life time. They may not understand the impact world events could have on them over night. That the vendors in that market, don’t necessarily, live in town; but, come there to sell and buy their goods- their risk could be less than those dependent on the downtown being supplied. For many, living downtown was a trendy pursuit to do so, by young native-born professionals, and westerners alike.
One other note was that I clearly saw a young Asian woman wearing a yellow light pull over sweater. I thought of the act of yielding, waiting … I thought for some, such crises would require preparation to wait it out. She walked wearing a blouse and sweater. This a casual sign of readiness in the event of atmospheric change. So, when the temperature changes for her she will have more flexibility to respond, as a born citizen of this region. I would say if this dream has any warning in it, that seemed to come out of the clear blue sky … An event in such a place would be very trying if not dangerous to not have a plan. Really, it should be a habit for everyone to consider a plan B, in order to survive, or at least not have to make choices, less desirable out of desperation. Which is another topic God’s been speaking to me about altogether, to remind His people what we trust Him for, and how much we rely upon Him, even when times are good, this is what will bring us stability and presence of mind when times and circumstances suddenly change. Wisdom is justified by her children. As Solomon said, look at the ant. I don’t know why I had this dream. But because what God has shown me over the last three decades with Somalia, Mozambique, Syria, Nairobi, and more recently the Congo Ebola out-break; I can only pray, warn, and document. *
Deana Barnes 12/29/2017 11:59 am.
*Again just a day or two after this dream, I had another: Two or Three young Caucasian men on a city street, thirsty and faint with hunger. It seemed like some kind of dust kick up, but the scene was not the same, now they are more away from the downtown area, and when I say downtown it could have been a trendy older city street near a more modern area. Where young Caucasian foreigners were now among a mixture of city and country people and there seems to be a bench. One of the young men is sitting on it exhausted. With just the clothes on his back, moving through a scene that seems desperate. I don’t know what this dream is all about but there is a wisdom in it.
When we are wise in our ways desperation cannot take us places we would rather not go. This young man was living vicariously. Moment to moment like many people do. Wouldn’t it be ridiculous to have to run to the streets in the middle of a crisis looking for water, when one could have stayed where they were at until things settled down; or, had a readiness pack to take with them? This is true with the condition of our souls, we can have assurance in Christ now, we can be in a place (spiritually) prepared for what ever comes. Even knowing what lies ahead and how to prepare. First and for most our souls need to be made ready for Christ’s return.
Beyond that, if God’s warnings are needed for spiritual preparation only, why was the Prophet Agabus used by the Spirit to warn of a famine during the time of the first Apostles? Why did Barnabas and Saul bring famine relief to the believers in Judea? Furthermore, if people think prophets are not suppose to speak of future events in this church era; but, only to edify, exhort, and comfort, then they need to study Acts 11:27, and Acts 28:27. As well as consider John’s book: The Revelation Of Jesus Christ. Or, take my view of it all and perhaps broaden their understanding of what edification, exhortation, and comfort, of the saints, all entails. In the world we live in today, I have seen tragedy in the lives of God’s people, because they viewed a prophet’s prophetic warning as a negative report, and would not receive it. I’ve seen God give a two year advance warning against cancer that was called an evil report, two years later the cancer was discovered too late. Had they just checked it out … On the other hand there was a family warned to begin canceling out an assignment against their daughter’s life. They began to pray over their adult child, and God miraculously spared their daughter’s life in a bicycle/ car accident just a week later. No lasting injuries. What the Church should do is go back to the pattern of a Jerusalem council to seek God for wisdom, and resolve, when visions, dreams, words and prophecies are released to the body, to get specific answers from God on how to move forward. Why not set up a prophetic prayer council among the body, to process all words given? The bible says let the prophets stand and judge! So let them. To confirm a word, seek on it, or receive of a move of God’s Spirit, or take actions to avoid adversity. But we don’t really do that much any more … We just stand back and watch to see if what was prophesied “comes to pass.”
Church, when are we going to activate our power and influence in the earth? It is time to rise and shine. Let’s become the people of Isaiah 60:1, 61:1, 62:1; in the Earth. Pastors stop paralyzing your people with fear of prophets, and prophecy, and begin teaching God’s sheep how to process the prophetic word. Most camp grounds and parks do not want people throwing together a pit fire for themselves, so they designate a safe place to contain one, with all the provision needed. They even provide the kindling to get one going! This is facilitating a fire and putting in safe guards so no one gets burned. But even though they know the Holy Spirit manifests as fire, some pastors never set up provision that will keep it going and make it last. Too many skiddish leaders just hope God won’t send a fire starter, so they have that fire extinguisher out and ready the minute some one gets too happy. If they continue in that mentality, one day … One day a fire will break out and they will have to be the mop up crew, after the fact. That is disorder because no one thought ahead. If we can’t manage revival fires on a singular scale how in the world will they be administrated on a city wide scale. Why, some pastors get a cold sweat when they hear some one break out in tongues. The least of all the gifts. Jesus said the Son of Man will return, but He asked a question, “Will He find faith in the earth when He comes? Will the Church be prepared to meet him? Will they be busy stewarding the returns on His great Life investment He poured out for all mankind? Or will they answer, “We were afraid? We not only buried our own talents but every one entrusted to us had to throw theirs in the hole too!” That is not His way. Wisdom is known by her children. If it gets messy it’s not yours to put it out, but it is yours to steward what could become a perpetual flame! He’s coming back to collect dividends on what has been entrusted, will the church of God be empty handed?
Back to the dream, God wants His people to be in a state of readiness. To be as wise as servants and harmless as doves.
“But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into.
** Whether this dream is a word of wisdom for all of us to keep in mind the times we are living in, or a specific warning regarding an event to come. It can be taken as a teaching scenario to be vigilant and sober, to watch and pray. To live in a state of spiritual readiness at all times. While I am not a prepper, my strongest advice would be that if our life style (aside from Jesus’s direct command, in Mathew 10:10, to go without purse, script, or sword) hurls us into the street, out of desperation, shortly after an event or crisis, then we cannot possibly be living our lives with intent according to the wisdom of God, specifically as it is written in the book of Proverbs.
Give not sleep to your eyes, nor slumber to your eyelids. Deliver yourself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler. Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provided her meat in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you sleep, O sluggard? when will you arise out of your [lack of awareness] sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall your poverty come on at once, [like a woman in travail], and your want as an armed man.
Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but found none.
It is absolutely impossible to be a real live prophet of God and not be an intercessor of people, governments, and nations. Not all intercessors occupy that office, but their giftings grow rich because of their selfless obedience as a member of God’s praying family. To them He reveals his will in the earth. The profile of an intercessor has been down graded as a past time for people who have time to pass. It is not an accurate profile. An intercessor is any servant of God who MAKES time to pray. They will be listed in the Annals of Heaven as the unknowns, among the known great men and women of GOD. Because true servants achieve great things through a life devoted to prayer, skilled in spiritual warfare. From this place an EFFECTIVE Five Fold Ministry is called. For even the effective fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much, more so if that righteous man or woman is appointed and anointed by God in ministry, leading many. While some people achieve recognition for their gift of gab, and fast talking charisma, it is the anointing that breaks the yoke. A life of prayer that makes an impact.
The heart of Jehovah is always looking for someone to stand in the gap.
Abraham was a friend of God, someone who would stand in the gap. God knew this when he told Abraham that Sodom and Gomorrah would be destroyed. If you want to be favored, as a friend of God, become an intercessor he reveals those things close to His heart. His son the Lord Jesus Christ, ever intercedes for us. A friend of God cares what God cares about and stands with Him. Like friends do.
Genesis 18:16-33 New King James Version (NKJV)
Abraham Intercedes for Sodom
Then the men rose from there and looked toward Sodom, and Abraham went with them to send them on the way. And the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.” And the Lord said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know.” Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord. And Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” So the Lord said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.” Then Abraham answered and said, “Indeed now, I who am but dust and ashes have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose there were five less than the fifty righteous; would You destroy all of the city for lack of five?” So He said, “If I find there forty-five, I will not destroy it.” And he spoke to Him yet again and said, “Suppose there should be forty found there?” So He said, “I will not do it for the sake of forty.” Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Suppose thirty should be found there?” So He said, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.” And he said, “Indeed now, I have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose twenty should be found there?” So He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty.” Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: Suppose ten should be found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten.” So the Lord went His way as soon as He had finished speaking with Abraham; and Abraham returned to his place.
We see in this passage that intercession for the righteous delivered them from the Judgment reserved for the wicked. Sadly only Lot and his household were spared.
James 2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which said, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed to him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
We are the temple of the Holy Ghost and the Body of Christ in the earth! Under a better covenant than Abraham and Moses. A cry for humanity goes up before the throne from the midst of His people night and day. (The Lord God in our midst is mighty.) His intercessors are that voice and heart’s cry for peoples, tongues, and nations. There are those appointed to be intercessors, and those so much after God’s own heart they become intercessors. To them He often gives dreams, visions, and prophetic insight to reveal prayer focus and strategy. Revealing His WORD over any given circumstance, to light the way. This is the quickest route to begin experiencing spiritual giftings. God equips HIS saints with what they need to do His work. He will not hold back in this spiritual work of intercession. Prophetic words, dreams, visions, and discernment of spirits, bring heavy artillery into the battle field.
The Worshipping Intercessor
They that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. An intercessor is most likely the first to enter into abandoned worship, and the last to file out of a corporate visit into the throne room of heaven. The shiny faced one in the crowd is most likely God’s intercessor. The weeping intercessor is often approached by people thinking they need prayer, when in fact they have just been praying for people. The weeping prophet is that prophet of continual intercession. An intercessor can testify of a loss of the sense of time, while laboring in travailing prayer. This is how a few minutes of prayer can run into hours for many veteran intercessors.
A faithful steward of dreams, visions, and prophecy, is an active intercessor. Because they understand them as tools to achieve God’s desired out come. By warning, by revelation, by declaration. While supernatural giftings is common for seasoned intercessors; for curious carnal minded on lookers, a peak in God’s war room may feel like an alien invasion. Not unlike Joshua’s supernatural fight of Jericho, from the Jerichoan’s point of view! Spiritual warfare is strategic, our God is a warrior. The captain of the Host Of Heaven. What a sight it must have been to see this curious army of the children of Israel surrounding a walled city. Spiritual warfare can produce a whole lot of noise, a lot of worship, a lot of shouting; a lot of dance, and marching, and a whole lot of walls coming down! But the scariest phenomenon of them all! A supernatural Hush Of God! I’ve seen a war room of prayer warriors stand under a heavy anointing for as much as an hour in this Holy silence. The waiting in silence is a time of heavenly downloads of supernatural strength. A body of believers perfected in yielding, in one mind and one accord, to the Spirit of Christ like this, is on their way to manifesting God’s supernatural army on earth.
The scripture says, they that wait upon the Lord shall mount up as Eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
Bear ye one another’s burden and so fulfill the law of Christ.
An original born of God burden bearer, bears the burden of the Lord. But remember Jesus said, MY YOKE is not heavy, MY BURDEN is light. The first thing a burden bearer or intercessor needs to learn is to not internalize anguish of soul. While we have a burden for the lost, prayer rolls that burden off, and vaporizes it into a heavenly offering before the throne of God, prayer should lift the burden. This is another reason that Philippians 4:6-7 should be practiced as often as we feel over whelmed, or over burdened. Under that heaviness the enemy can get a foothold, and this is not the will of God. We can (of our own free will) bear up burdens of others in prayer. But no one should pray burdens to be laid on a known intercessor. Let the Father handle that.
Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
I wanted to write about the ministry of intercession in the light of visions, dreams, and prophecy- so people can understand more about God’s gifting in intercessory prayer. The gift we are equipped with and the office we occupy are the lens we approach intercessory prayer with. That is how several people coming together and praying for one focus point will see or sense different facets of prayer need. This is why we can’t hurry through points of prayer, corporately, before the offices and giftings among us are released from their burden. Whether this is corporate ministry or intercession. It is wise to have representatives from each office to lay out their petition for the matter. Letting the saints pray over it in the Spirit and with their understanding also. This way the Fivefold ministry is activated during intercession, pulling down strongholds and making away for the full council of God to come in any given matter. When God chose Abraham to intercede over Sodom, He chose one who would become a Father of Nations. His intercession wasn’t just for Lot’s survival, it wasn’t just for his relatives, but all righteous peoples with in that city. Abraham and Sarah were known for their hospitality, they loved people. This is another reason God chose Abraham to tell of His plans to destroy these two wicked cities. He knew Abraham would be moved for the humanity with in them. Any Apostle or Prophet that thinks INTERCESSORY pray is for little old ladies and not for them, hasn’t understood Abraham’s friendship with God, and is not of any rank according to the super prophet Jeremiah.
Jeremiah 27:18 If they are prophets, and if the word of the LORD is with them, then let them intercede with the LORD of hosts.
I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who will never hold their peace day or night; you who [are His servants and by your prayers] put the Lord in remembrance [of His promises], keep not silence …
Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).
1 Timothy 2:1
First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men.
In 1992 I had the privilege of seeing a move of God at its point of ignition. What I observed has always stayed with me. For many years we were praying for a break through in a region of the North West. An aging evangelist came to our town. Well known for sparking revivals. I saw Him work, and God showed me a key in action. This man understood intercession, and he understood its power. His first few meetings were dedicated to teaching Holy Spirit filled INTERCESSORY prayer, and he revived that prayer ministry, during his meetings. He set up prayer among the people, attending the revival meetings, and called upon the whole congregation to lift their voice to God after the first and second night. He also refused to settle for timid prayers. He wasn’t happy until prayer roared out of that sanctuary on behalf of the city, people slumped at the altar wailing for souls. He didn’t shut it down like so many do. Prayer went into the night, even as intercessors disbanded, and regrouped in their homes. God had this man revive prayer first. And I mean real prayer. *Travailing prayer. The evangelist extended his meetings. 800 hundred souls were saved in this mid size city. And prayer was revived. Long story short by 1996 this town was listed in the top ten best cities to live in. And many years after, well into the new millennium. A slumping economy was now booming. 100,000 people who left in the 1980’s looking for work and better lives, had either come back or were replaced by others looking for work, and a better life, in a growing economy. The metropolitan area tripled in size after 10 years. Several struggling Spirit filled churches began to grow in leaps and bounds. Eagles, and I mean prophetic ones, began to land in these spirit filled churches immediately after this evangelistic over throw. Restoring the office of the Apostles and Prophets to facilitate the growth to come. One of those Apostles began a prayer house ministry in Washington DC., The key to everything is prayer. The key to great accomplishments in the kingdom of God is to be that one who will stand in the gap. Being a friend of God.
Ezekiel 22:30 I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it …
*As giving birth. The travails of laboring with child.
