  Life In The Spirit

Remnant Nation Radio w/NeWinePouring.com is a prophetic (and often poetic) view of the sojourning bride of CHRIST, in our world today.

 Over a span of 33 years Deana has ministered in outreaches, prisons, jails, churches, and women’s meetings. After several years in property, business, and people management, the Lord called her aside into a life of prayer and writing in 2007. Her teaching articles and prophetic words have been viewed by individuals from 104 different countries, where recorded visitors are fast approaching 100,000. At the time she accepted Christ, in 1978, Deana received an open eye vision of the Lord handing her a blazing torch out of heaven that lit up the night sky; she was 17 years old. Later, she would understand that experience to signify a commission of God to an end-times prophetic ministry.

A Spiritual Work


Colossians 3:16

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.

Thank God for the spiritual giftings of the Holy Ghost, that enable us to recognize the diversity of operations among the callings of God in the ministry of intercession. In other words intercessory prayer ministry has as many facets to it, as there are anointings. A work championed in the unseen realm, needing discernment among the saints of God!

1 Corinthians 14:15

Well then, what shall I do? I will pray in the spirit, and I will also pray in words I understand. I will sing in the spirit, and I will also sing in words I understand.


Ephesians 5:19

… speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,

Encountering The Holy One a Pod Cast

Have you received the Holy Spirit since you believed? This question was asked by Paul when he encountered disciples of Christ on his journey as an Apostle. Why would Paul ask disciples of Christ if they had the Holy Spirit? Is that not an automatic for all those baptized in water? All those who believe in Christ? Not according to the scriptures. Tune in as Deana takes us on a short excursion through Acts revealing two separate baptisms. The baptism of water, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and fire.

Return To The Harbour of Your Awakenings- The Harbinger, Bounty

Jeremiah 8:19-22

Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities?

The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me. Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

The Harbinger Bounty

In 1960 the Bounty was built in Nova Scotia for the 1962 film, Mutiny on the Bounty. It has also been used in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End. Still, it went down in the waves, known by all, as the Tall Ship Bounty. Her movie titles, alone, paint a prophetic picture that cannot be denied. They give credence to the suggestion that Bounty’s last tragic performance, cried out a warning as she made her final bow on the stage of America’s coastal waters.

Mutiny_HMS_BountyThe more I look into the details of Bounty, I cannot help but see a prophetic story behind the story, that suggest earnest warnings we can’t ignore. A symbolism of TITANIC proportions that lies with in its epic journey. (And I mean that literally since the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, 1912, also, was said to have profound prophetic value.) Bounty’s unusual story begins with CHRISTIAN FLETCHER (who was Bounty’s Mutineer) naming his first born son THURSDAY OCTOBER. The child THURSDAY, was born October 14, 1790. It would be 222 years later, ON A THURSDAY IN OCTOBER, that the Ship would depart from its safe haven, from the New London harbour in Connecticut. An unlikely name to mark a departure 222 years in advance. That alone is a notable coincidence.

The Tall Ship rests as a side note to a storm far bigger than any she has ever faced.

Hurricane Sandy, in her own right, holds parallels of the storm to come that will trouble our own waters, if we don’t act on warnings that the SPIRITUAL LIGHT HOUSES in the land, are trying to convey to a sleepy nation. To see it for yourself I will give you the keys. But, first read my story. After that, research on your own and see if you cannot discern the prophetic warning crying out to us from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean 90 miles southeast of of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Bounty Sailed off, that fateful day, from New London which is graced with great beacons of its own, along the coastline. Only to falter in the waters of America’s largest brick  lighthouse four days later. Christian America, are we not houses of light? Are we not sounding the alarm loud enough, shining our light bright enough?

Again, it was a THURSDAY in OCTOBER, the 25th of 2012, just days before the election that Bounty set sail from the Harbour of New London, Connecticut, to avoid what it fell into, headlong, in an attempt to “skirt” the storm. I wonder, should America leave her proverbial harbours, in a weakened economy, to toss in the torrents of what many are predicting could lead us into World War III? You see, it was Bounty’s failed generators that sealed her demise while she tossed, vicariously,  in a whirlwind of unprecedented circumstances. Will America’s economic generators fail her in the storms of the Sand? So much like The Tall Ship Bounty trying to skirt the squalls of the Frankenstorm Sandy, that we can equate to the opening theatre of World War III.

The etymology of Sandy meaning- “In the Nature of the Sand” Remember, Governor Christy tried to re-build after Sandy hit, and that effort burned down. The fire was due to faulty electrical wiring from the previous structure. IF THE FOUNDATION IS BROKEN WHAT CAN THE PEOPLE DO? How about a national day of repentance before we arrogantly decide to rebuild? Look what we are facing in the land of sand, if we don’t step back, humble ourselves and seek God? I’m speaking to Christian America, mind you. After building our lives with out a moral compass to see us through our storms we run headlong into one far more menacing, with far more lives at stake. Truly, as the parable warns not to do … WE have done it any way. Jesus plainly warned us not to build our house on the sand, rather, Jesus said, “Build your house on the ROCK.” America, could you have not put your trust in Christ?

Two years later, the story of the Tall Ship Bounty continues to parallel as a HARBINGER of things to come, if we do not heed the prophetic warnings voiced in her tragic demise. The beautiful replica of a ship whose sails proudly billowed in the sea breezes of years gone by, is now a story, fully supplied with the cargo of prophetic detail cautioning us not to flirt with a WORLD WIDE tempest, while our economic engines, and generators are failing.

BOUNTY’S story is a sign, paralleling AMERICA’S Economy in her tragic story. A fatal decision is made to move the TALL SHIP BOUNTY out to sea, in order to avoid what is titled THE STORM OF THE CENTURY, but instead of going around it, the TALL SHIP BOUNTY is steered into the path of the HURRICANE SANDY. Later it is reported that the engine, and the generator, that pumped water from her hull, both failed.

Bounty took on water and sank beneath the crew. Taking with her, a direct descendant of the original BOUNTY’S mutineer, and her captain. The weakened economic engines of AMERICA and the GENERATORS that are failing her, will not support the unpredictable path of what is to come. Will we heed the WARNINGS? WILL AMERICA’S OARSMEN STEER her headlong into STORMS she will not be able to survive? (Ez.27) Shall HER BOUNTY SINK BENEATH THE WAVES? See the incredible parallels of BOUNTY’S History and warnings out of EZEKIEL 27. WOULD THAT BOUNTY HAD RESTED IN NEW LONDON’s harbour, the cradle of former awakenings.  Link below.

Did the humbling of our American leaders who were steering us headlong into the Syrian conflict come as an answer to our prayers, the last time around?

What secrets are hidden in the wisdom of Bounty’s prophetic counsel, that is directly tied to Ezekiel 27? Should America take the beating of her bountifulness, with in her own harbours, rather than facing off the storms of the SAND?

Does the story of Fletcher Christian parallel the generational fruition of the seeds of mutiny?

Can patriotic Christian America humble herself before God?Are there foundational errors and arrogances Christian America need to own up to?Fletcher (seller of arrows) Christian Bounty’s Mutineer. Will Christian America repent for selling out her arrows (Children) even her posterity for the purposes of that which is the nature of the SAND?

Psalm 127:3-5 Children are as arrows, Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.

2 Chronicles 7:13-14

…”If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. “Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.…

Following that prophetic marker regarding the seller of arrows, should America have ever sold our weapons to unstable characters in the Middle East? Is that ever wise? Where is the wisdom of God, America? Will her own war arrows defeat her efforts in the middle east, as her economic generators fail? America, repent turn back to the harbour. The region of your former awakenings. Pray for Jerusalem, that she would have peace. Stop murdering your pre-born children, feed, clothe, and shelter Christ himself, who is our brethren, near and far. Be a rescuer, not a fool in wars with the haters of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Only God can unravel what you have done, He is able.

NEXT: Let’s move on to the next page with these three keys. 1. The Tall Ship Bounty represents America, blessed. 2. The Sandy Hurricane represents the War of the Century. 3. The Captain of the Bounty represents the American Infrastructure, both in counsel and form. All other prophetic parallels and markers have been identified.

Making Your Election Sure

image

Hear what the spirit says to those who call themselves The people of God in America. I have a people who call out to me day and night. They truly weep at my feet and are covered under my shadow at the alter, in the place of intercession, many of them have answered the call, have forsaken all, to follow my instruction in these the end-times. No election of candidates will change what America is facing in her tomorrows. Repentance, only, will extend the hand of the Father to pass mercy across this land, he is able to turn the face of kings, as well as harden the hearts of the Pharaohs. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. What are the words spoken out of the mouth of the shepherds in the land? Will slander, mockery, and the blaming of others turn the tide? 

The First Church Of The Free Born

But, yet there is an unrepentant, religious, and prideful people, who walks the broad path of what is called Christian America, today.

I saw the rubble of a building in the fore front, a city scape in the back drop, and between the two- a storm beaten Statue of Liberty. An arm from heaven reached down and took the hand of a little boy out of the rubble, and The Lord said, “See this thing that you have done? The thing that has been broken in America is not being understood by the natural eye, for though this people have greatly prospered, and have acquired much wealth and comfort, they are a broken and plundered people, their children, if they could see, stand a midst the rubble of broken lives, broken families, and broken homes. What has become of those I have appointed to be Fathers in the Land? Worse yet, what has befallen the Shepherds? The curse of dismemberment plagues the land, the children are increasingly covered with a spirit of violence, says The Lord, you have wanted everything, and have paid the price to obtain it! The price you have paid is your posterity.

If you could see what you have come to, where your children are standing alone, in the rubble of a nation, that has everything, but possesses nothing … Yet, as I have said, my arm is not shortened that it cannot save; nor, is my ear heavy that I cannot hear, for I am hearing the cry of the Fatherless in this nation, and with my own arm of strength I am reaching for them, says The Lord, for they are the generation that will know the cost for the selling of the souls of men. Yet, I have called them by the name that I have named them, and they will look up from where they sit, and they shall find me, my hand extended, in the day that I can be found. I will lead them as a father would lead them, they shall be my sons, and my daughters, and I shall be their father.

For I am a father to the fatherless, and a husband to the widow, says The Lord. You have created a nation of orphans, and a land full of widows of the living dead. You war against me still, and you say how have I warred against you, lord? I sent forth the spirit of Elijah into the land, to turn the fathers heart towards the children, that your children may learn the way of FATHER, but you have resisted me, says The Lord, who died that you might live, and whose WORD now lives, that you might not die. Rather, you sacrifice the future of your own in order to protect your comforts for the day. Why do you continuously ( without remorse) sacrifice your sons and your daughters to the god of temporary pleasures? Over, and over again, while being the most civilized, of the civilized, in your eyes?

You have spent your seed for sowing upon your own pleasures, what then shall come to you in the day of harvest? Have you not sowed to the wind? Shall you not reap the whirl wind? Is it not written a GOOD MAN leaves an inheritance to His children’s children? What then is the one called who sells the child of his child to servitude, some not yet born? Shall he escape this shame? Will not the lender stop his lending, and demand the borrower to pay? Shall they not liquidate the future, to satisfy the appetites of yesterday? Does not the house do as the hill, and the hill the same as the house? So you say it is those upon the hill that does these things, but are not those upon the hill the same who live in houses, did they not first come out of your neighbourhoods, and communities? They serve themselves first, as you in your homes the same, at the expense of their child’s future, for enough is never enough to satisfy, as fire is never satisfied, nor rage, nor lust.

Therefore, your elected ones reflect you. So then, shall this one who fattened himself upon his child’s tomorrow not Himself be in want? Shall he not regret the price he paid for those things that last not, the price of his own sons, and daughters? Have I not given you time to repent? Both small, and great, says the Lord, but you would not? You quoted all the right scriptures, wrote your books, held your meetings, financed your campaigns, to bring AMERICA BACK TO GOD, you tussled in your homes, at city hall, and in your town square pointed your finger and beat your chest, a patriot, of patriots you say, yet in all of this did you personally confess the error in your own heart? Did you humble yourself to seek it out, to find what you cannot see, unless you humbly enquire of me? Yet, touched by these things, rather, you rage. This one thing, you will lie down in regret. Repent, says The Lord, and I will give you your children to honour your memory. That they may see, in the end, you did all that you could do.

I will not have you deceived, repentance will not reinstate to you what you would esteem as your former glory; it will however, provide for you the reward that comes with the testing of your faith, more precious than gold. I can promise you the process of the baptism of fire. Turn to me now, see? See? Even the generation that watched out for you, built for you, shall you even tax for your salacious appetites, to keep your status quo? So you rob from the future, and drain the store, to have your fill for the day?

Repent and I will sustain you, for the benefit of your children’s children, a generation who will know my name, my arm of strength, and power, if you repent, this one thing you shall then have, the joy of your children with you, the sons and daughters, of your sons, and your daughters, who play upon the floor where you rest your feet, whom, themselves, shall pay regard to how you finished the end of your days. For in your best days a common thing shall be in the land, one house hold shall house three. Hear what the Spirit of The Lord says, that I may walk you out of your errors, this day, not that you become as you were. But, that you be counted as the wise who made a difference when your story is told, among those who will come after you. Whose HERITAGE will be of me, says The Lord.

A prayer to start with:

Father in Heaven, I come before you to acknowledge my sins that I have committed along with those that have trespassed against you in this great nation, that the people were given stewardship to manage, so many years ago. Father, somehow, we have lost our nation into the hands of another. Our elected ones that come from our neighbourhoods, our communities, and our cities, have turned our country the wrong way, time after time. I come before you and repent for all that I had part in, in America turning its back on you, and the Godly principles we were to uphold. Even in the sin of omission when I didn’t do those things that I could have done, to insure our good standing with you, as a people. I repent of all my ways that has acted in unison with all citizens of this country who have missed the mark, in securing your blessing upon our land. I ask that you show me what I can do as an act of true repentance, that I mean this prayer with all my heart. I pledge to continue to pray for all those in authority who are governing this great nation. I, also, pledge to NOT be one of those who stand as a mocker, slanderer, or a false witness; nor, a flatterer, or given over to the praise of men. But, will endeavour to speak the truth in love, at all times, and obey the Spirit to walk with Him, through all the days he has ordained for me, as a citizen of the Kingdom of God, on this soil. Amen

Pretty Coats and Burial Cloths

Pretty Coats and Burial cloths

A Prophetic Word

I have them that are like my son Joseph, whom I have brought through grievous trials. I’ve brought them  from the depths of prison, both literal, and spiritual. Regardless the failure, or in Joseph’s case the false accusations- In your scars still looms the past, that I want to heal forever by reminding you that I have put my signet ring upon your finger, that you may not forget, in all your leading, (in the pointing of the good way) who it is that is YOUR father. I’ve draped you with my robe of righteousness, not only is this garment (a robe for covering), but it is a mantle where by I have called you to walk in. It is that thing that you should not put off, but you shall wear it always. It covers all things you lack in, from head to toe! Let it give you MY peace.

Receive for your mind my peace not torment, my love not fear, go out now from this place where I have met you, with these things to always remind you who you are, your inheritance is in me, your heritage also. For the pretty coat worn by the boy caused him many trials, as it did Joseph of old, it is gone now ripped and dispersed. It was meant to be your burial cloth, as was Joseph’s coat of many colors, rather it was preserved to testify, the one who wore it is dead. The old man is dead. Mourn no more over former glories, I drew the line my son, it was ME.

My coat is not made of man made materials, nor is it the glory of men. You have been renewed, now, and though the seven more wicked than the others have haunted you, you have filled yourself with me. They have found no place. We are here together now. This battle is won in me. My son we have conversed much at the gate of your inheritance, we have spent many days in your days of renewal. Come now and see all that I have in reserve for you. Your allotments in me. WEAR my Kingdom like a garment, never put it off. Of a certain it is RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND JOY in the HOLY GHOST.

You stand on the sidewalks of salvation, before you tower the great columns of the porticos’ of peace, the entry way of our fellowship, the place of our communion. Let us sit beyond these doors and rest with in these walls, when you rest with me you are in the highest form of alertness. Am I not the captain of the Host of heaven? I know how to rest, laugh, sing, and war. When David rested from wars he fell into sin. I know how to balance all of the above in a perfect harmony of watchfulness and wakefulness.

In this place, you will see as I see, and be able to properly discern the day, and all its watches. You have longed for the days of renewal, and sought to set its order, but the order that you have seen in days gone by, will not be in the days to come. Not only has the furniture been moved around, but the address isn’t the same. You never exit the gate you came in from. For the glory of the latter house will be greater than the former. Remember, my son- the Tabernacle of God is with men. The fire by night and cloud by day that leads a mobile assembly, in the Spirit, will have no walls.

Let not man’s perimeters, that quench my Spirit be your walls, even your limitations. Live with in the walls of my kingdom, and your work will not be limited. The questions of “how” will dissolve when the proper platforms are raised. Here in, you will fulfill the calling where by I have called you with, says The Lord. Monuments made of walls, with stones erected by men, who cut them out with their own hands are not where I have called you, nor is it where one should spend ones life in the pouring in of their goods or time. But, it truly is the mountain of the Lord, made not by human hands where I’ve called my people to stream to.

Isaiah 2 New King James Version (NKJV)

Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the Lord’s house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And all nations shall flow to it. Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, And rebuke many people; They shall beat their swords into plowshares, And their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war anymore.

Though many houses and many high walled places may call to you, and you shall stand with in them and preach my word, know your heart rests in Zion. Your spirit rests with in my house whose Chief Corner Stone the builders rejected, is it of no wonder you have been rejected, also, oh Living Stone? Where I am not, know you are out of place, also. They want the beauty of your colors, to crown their works, but not the order that supplies your proper settings. My jealousy for you, my son, has closed many doors, and been the cause of much rejection, let your wounded soul be healed knowing, I have not rejected you but I have chosen you. Living Stone you are set already, in a house made with out hands.

I have fashioned and formed you myself to fit where I have placed you, you are not displaced, but set among those that are mine, through the eyes of the Spirit, you will begin to understand true order. True placement, and finishing processes that perfect those placements, set by my Spirit, says the Lord. Then not only will you comprehend yourself as a living stone among many that makes my house, but you shall, also, be able to identify, and confirm my preparations in others releasing them in to my divine order, this is the true apostolic work of my kingdom of which you are being called.

The patience you will need to wait in- is for the embedded Stones captive in religious settings, even used to crown the works of men, to be dislodged from their satanic strongholds, in order that your ministry will locate and properly line them up for the order of my house, says God. Wait upon me, for this I am perfecting you. ( I see the Father holding smooth stones in His hand as if to clear them from the dust of where He brought them out of) these are those the Father is preparing to be entrusted to one who has been acquainted with their infirmity. (I hear in my spirit that the cutting of stones is a delicate operation, and this is, also, the Father’s work- extracting diamonds from the rough, new converts with clean slates, not marred by religious settings.)

These are those entrusted in the hands of those of whom I’ve anointed to equip them, you shall see them through my eyes, and in my ability that I’ve given you. You shall prepare them for their proper settings, in my house made not with hands of men, but this will be done by my Spirit, through you, for it surly is not by might nor by power, that my lively stones are placed in their settings in my kingdom, says the Lord. Note: In Christ there is no male no female Greek or Jew. But, I kept hearing the Lord Say, “I will be a Father to those Son’s like Joseph, (they have no Father but God, because of injustice in the earth.) This is to say for a lack of spiritual Father’s, as well. I also, saw that the Father wept over the orphans of the earth, and the widows. Hebrews 12.

The Blood Moon An Exclamation Point

The Spirit of the Lord is saying, “I want them to get this right. To Understand what the message truly conveys in all my prophetic rehearsals.” The day they point to (in type) are revisited in shadows, every year. This shadow passing over the moon, is a sign unto my people that the rehearsals are passing over into their final phase of fruition. Embarking upon the journey that will bring them to their highest point. As the rehearsal for a wedding is played out to make sure all understand their participation.Until that final day.

(Christ concealed, in them and then revealed, yet concealed still, from the Jews, Until the great day of His revealing where all will see HIM whom they have pierced.)

“But, now. In all your getting get this, says the Lord. Understand this feast to know me as YOUR Shelter. What more can I do? I’ve sent my servants the prophets as I have promised, I confirm my word with signs and wonders following. In all your knowing know this: He that dwells in the Shelter of the Most High abides in the shadow of the almighty. In this is the days of your joy. In this is the harvest of all your provision you will have need of. In this I am present with you, not a memory, not a peaceful thought, but an abiding presence. Am I not the vine, as you are the branch? As you abide in me- life flow will be the course that sustains you, in draught. As I sustained the children of Israel in the wilderness, and gave them daily manna to strengthen them, is not the Bread OF Life my Son who sustains you in all your degrees of famine, says the Lord? Rest assured, I Am. Abide in the vine, dear ones, for with out the vine you can do nothing of yourself.”

Voice of The Beloved

imagePsalms 61:1-3

Hear my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. 

Voice

I know this journey has become very difficult for you, but I want you to know that you have not failed me, but in truth it is a passage way, a deep bend off the beaten path.Yet, it is the way. I am the way, remember that, you are in me, and I in you, WE are in the Father. My Spirit has compelled you to come hither, and you have answered that call, but it has brought you to this place, that feels like a hollowed canyon, where an endless stream has cut through a path for you, and still the waters flow … This the way of the deep, calling.

This road I’ve brought you on to travel, has, increasingly, proven to more narrow, and more difficult, as time moves on, still I am with you. Did I not say, “Lo, I am with you always?” It should comfort you to know there is no other way for you to go, for you are walled in with me, so deep, so narrow, and so high there can be no wrong turn from here, for we have converged upon THE MOUNTAIN now, there is no where else for you to go, remember those days your heart would swell with joy when you stood from it, so far? From a distance cool rains and sunsets washed a glory mist upon it, and you wept for the beauty of it. Knowing, someday, someday … Well beloved SOMEDAY has come, for my people are converging upon the mountain of The Lord, and it will test and try you but know this for certain, there was a time when you had many ways that you could choose to go, but you have chosen THE WAY, and have embarked upon HIS path, did I not say straight is the gate and narrow the path that leads to life and few their be who find it?

Now follow me, nothing that you have done wrong has put you here, but it is that ford, that bend, that bridge that is taking you to the other-side, representing those crossings beyond your own ability, that takes you into mine. See my hand extended to comfort you? Though not far from you, have I not always reminded you I am near? Know that your cries are heard by me as much as your silence, you cannot be left alone- your walls are continually before me, as my walls surround you, I am the rock cut from the mountain of The Lord, fashioned without hands, you are anchored in the cornerstone of the promises of the Father, who is not a man that he should lie, or the son of man that he could be mistaken, your journey is one of purpose, at the crossing of man’s ability and into the endless possibilities that are mine. The mountain of The Lord increases, my Kingdom is come. We will make our début, as the church triumphant! They will know those whom overcome as the pillars of the temple, bearers of the weightiness of the glory of the Father, in the place His presence abides.

Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed. “I will make justice the measuring line And righteousness the level; Then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies And the waters will overflow the secret place.

Solomon’s Song 2:14
“O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, In the secret place of the steep pathway, Let me see your form, Let me hear your voice; For your voice is sweet, And your form is lovely…

Let Me Hear Your Voice

I saw my self walking a path at the bottom of what appeared to be an extremely high and narrow canyon, it narrowed as I progressed further down the path and began to feel like I was walking in a way that was cut in stone, in fact this path seemed to be cut through a mountain, and I was walking though what I began to understand was a passage way, proving to become more narrow, and more difficult in the passing of time. I knew I had to continue- I was compelled, convinced, and resolved to keep going, but the further in this trek I walked, the more fear would creep in and doubt would trouble my mind as the deepening canyon cast ever darker shadows. But, I would shake it off, and keep going, the path came to a bend, it was more narrow, the walls of it towered above me; yet, impossible as it seemed, I was able to keep going. It was at this point, in the mountain, where the walls were their highest, where the way narrowed, and the sense of isolation deepened. It all became to much for me, and I felt I was asked to accomplish an impossible feet.

I found myself in a battle of wits fending off fear’s taunt, as my mind succumbed to an icy notion that I was stuck, with no way out, and wouldn’t be able to move. That some how I believed a lie, understanding Jonah’s lament I felt doubt tear through me like shards of ice, my accusatory voice taunting me, “You’re going the wrong way”, I thought I couldn’t breath, and I wept for what seemed like hours lodged in the depths of this rock mountain. Now, I stood there convinced I had done something wrong for this to be happening to me, thinking this could not have been what God had planned for my life. I remembered Jonah’s lament and felt that I could understand a portion of his agony.

“I cried out to the Lord because of my affliction,
And He answered me.”

“Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
And You heard my voice.
For You cast me into the deep,
Into the heart of the seas,
And the floods surrounded me;
All Your billows and Your waves passed over me.
Then I said, ‘I have been cast out of Your sight;
Yet I will look again toward Your holy temple.’
The waters surrounded me, even to my soul;
The deep closed around me;
Weeds were wrapped around my head.
I went down to the moorings of the mountains;
The earth with its bars closed behind me forever;
Yet You have brought up my life from the pit,
O Lord, my God.

“When my soul fainted within me,
I remembered the Lord;
And my prayer went up to You,
Into Your holy temple.

“Those who regard worthless idols
Forsake their own Mercy.
But I will sacrifice to You
With the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay what I have vowed.
Salvation is of the Lord.”

At some point in this moment of despair I seemed to rise above my self and go outside from where I was, and I became the “her” the “she” ​whom I was now watching below. I could see “her”, seemingly,​ embedded​ in a deep cleft, in the narrow canyon of a rock mountain, passing through an etched path of what looked like luminous blue gray granite. The sky had an aurora effect that cast everything into a blue translucent​ light as if the stars and moon were reflecting the sun as fully as they could past the twilight hour. “​She​”​ was in the pathway cut through it, deep and narrow, as I watched her I listened. She softly wept between intervals of silence, she whispered, she recited verses, and in the late night screamed out banishments to fear. When her voice grew silent I could hear the rythematic breathing in her intervals of rest.

At times she conversed, she laughed, and worshipped the Father, it was in these times her journey seemingly progressed in a steady clip. She sang little songs, but when the shadows deepened and the wind shifted she wept, she sobbed, she grew silent, she slept, she awoke, she whispered, she recited, she rested, she wept, but somehow the tears would always give way to an assurance that would lift her up to go on, and every time she rose up she found the only thing that would lodge her stuck in the passage way was when her fears would get the best of her, and doubt would overwhelm her. From above I could see, In truth, “she” was not hungry, thirsty, or lost; the she who was I could breath …  I was never once stuck, cold, nor ever in danger. It puzzled me why moving forward through this passageway would at times cause so much brokenness in my life, every time it stemmed from the same ​disturbing​ thought, questioning not God, but my ability to hear God, doubting not the creator, but the creature’s fallibility. In that I was helplessly and hopelessly flawed,  just one more ​dark​ thought away from disaster.

​An Expected End

As ​I watched myself ​from above, I thought​:​ I cannot help myself to see, that (The WAY) had an expected end, a sure finish, lined up with the rising of the dawn, and was just ​this one ​dark night away, in a place I was never alone. ​For ​not only had the​Great Shepherd ​ walked this same path, the Spirit of the Lord was my enduring guide. I prayed to the Lord to lift me up. It was then that I heard Him begin to speak to me in a loving tone, to keep my focus narrowed upon him, through this transition, in this place so difficult, saying, “He whose mind is stayed upon me has perfect peace.” He exhorted me to meditate on ​His​ word, to pray unceasingly, to worship and praise, to sing to myself spiritual songs, and keep my focus upon Him​,​ always. He brought me back to those instances when I lost my mental footing and the journey became to difficult to bear.

He​ said, “In these times you let your mind drift and though it provided momentary escape for you, it wasn’t what you needed to keep your spiritual equilibrium; but, rather, was what caused you to lose your footing.” I remembered when that happened, my mind drifted away and went somewhere else, I remember looking back, staring into the rock as if it was a movie screen going back into the recesses of my mind.​​ How ​I could somehow sprout wings and fly away​;​ but,​ when I had come back to myself from these empty daydreams, to the crevice where I stood … it was somehow darker, the Lord’s voice masked by the howl of the arid cavity I stood in, only to feel lonelier …​ and it was there the doubts began to be hurled at me, landing like razor edged stones cutting into my soul, my own voice taunting me as I stood paralysed, heaving in tears. Still, a broken and contrite heart the Lord will not ignore, He will not despise it, and mercy would lift me up, and enable me to realize, I was free all along to progress in this journey, to move on in Him, by faith, and so I did​.​ I moved, and when I did the restrictions that seemingly froze ​me ​in my tracks, drifted off like ghostly cords, unravelling from my arms, legs, and hands.

The only restraints that restrained me were those of my cruel imaginations. Had I kept my focus the essence of His being would have called upon me to continue to keep moving as it had been, all along. But,  in my fatigue I looked away, Oh, if I could sprout wings and fly away, my strength betrayed me … But, I remembered HIS promises and when I thought I couldn’t go any farther, and the hours became days, He appeared there beside me, and said, “Look from where you come and what you passed through. So I did, I was astounded at the passage way I had just passed through, knowing I ​had come​ this way​;​ but, from where I came was physically impossible for any one to go through, The Lord said, “This is the eye of the needle that is impossible with men, yet, is possible with God.”

I could see I had to have this encounter in order to face what I had to pass through next. For it was just as narrow and, seemingly, just as impossible; but, I was encouraged. I remembered a word the Lord gave to me years prior. When the gift of faith takes you into extraordinary circumstances, an extraordinary prayer life is required to sustain it. These places are dangerous to back slide in, for when we have experienced the remarkable acts, and attributes of God, and then have fallen away from Him, Satan’s delight to punish such a one is found in great cruelty, it would be better for them to have never known HIS remarkable power, than to have known it, tasted of it, flourished in it, just to fall under the spell of the deceitfulness of sin, and regress from the truth. This the Father’s concern for us and HIS MERCY is clear in the mystery of balancing our root systems with draught, to grow them deep, with out causing our fruit to perish.

Psalm 22:19-24

But You, O Lord, do not be far from Me;
O My Strength, hasten to help Me!
 Deliver Me from the sword,
My precious life from the power of the dog.
Save Me from the lion’s mouth
And from the horns of the wild oxen!

You have answered Me.

 I will declare Your name to My brethren;
In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.
You who fear the Lord, praise Him!
All you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him,
And fear Him, all you offspring of Israel!
 For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
Nor has He hidden His face from Him;
But when He cried to Him, He heard.

This truth became evident in those moments of doubt in the mountain cleft. How quickly a satanic suggestion is near to creep in with mockery in order to destroy the progress of the miraculous. In contrast to the extreme, there is also the challenge to live in the mundane, and serve him well there, this is an allowance approved as acceptable, and of reasonable service, from a merciful Father, to preserve us. The author and finisher of our faith, is the one who is constantly pressing out imperfections that would destroy us under pressure should they be solidified with in the constitution of what makes us who we are. This is letting patience having her perfect work, in us that extreme circumstances can perfect us, not destroy us.

So He is faithful in the breaking, when we need broken, and in the mending, when we need torn, and in the moulding, even to the marring of the clay, when starting over serves HIS greater purpose in perfecting us … As long as we are in His hands, walking in HIS WAY, there will be no regrets, nor failure. Even our set backs in Christ will cause us to arrive right on time. Many times I asked the Lord, “Please let me do more for you.” Like a Father holding on to the tugging hands of His little daughter who would rather run than talk, He says, “I know how to send you away with out loosing you. Let all things be in my will, and in my time.” So the lesson is rest in HIM, and trust, never doubt that He is in you as you abide in Him. In all things give thanks, to this one- The Author and Finisher of Our Faith.

Give Me Shelter

To The Least of These

image

 

My daughter was over for the weekend. I was up early in my routine, with he Lord, and she mentioned in passing that she was hungry, I knew we had nothing easy for her to go to, and that breakfast would require my full attention, so I explained to her that breakfast wasn’t going to be for awhile. No sooner had I said that, then I turned to Mathew 25: 31-46 in the bible that was in my hand. Of course, the words of Jesus saying, I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, grabbed my attention. Later, a prophetic declaration from the Spirit of The Lord, was spoken to us revolving around this paragraph in the New Testament.

The Son of Man Will Judge the Nations

Mathew 25:31-40

“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

After I read that passage, needless to say, I decided to get breakfast going for her. Later, again, the passage flopped open to us, when the bible was picked-up off the table, during our prayer time, and this is what came of our encounter with the Holy Spirit, in the following prophetic declaration.

To The Least Of These

“All of time is recorded in the books, these days are recorded in heaven and all that occurs on earth, occurs before my eyes”, says the Lord. “I have decreed special anointings and mercies that have been held up for such a time as now, and I am releasing greater reward for those that bless me, among mine, in every nation, and in every tongue, among men”, says the Lord. “Whosoever finds me in prison, and visits me, will he himself be visited. Feeds me, will be fed, clothes me and covers all manner of my nakedness, he himself shall not be made ashamed in his hour, he will rejoice in me, and I will cover him so long as he continues his trust towards me. For when he has done this to the least of those who are mine he has done this to me, and who are those that are mine? Are they not of whom I am their head and they are my body? Are they not, also, the least in all the lands, who look to me? Allow the little children to come to me, make away for them to come to me, help them to come to me, and you will not lose your reward. I’m saying, He who finds the Christian in this earth and blesses him, is blessing me, and he who finds the destitute, who looks to me, and helps them, helps me. This is the rod that separates the goats from the sheep before me, I will judge the nations, says the Lord, but this hour will determine where many will stand for blessing and for reward while I am being persecuted through out all nations, and my head, in the market place, is sold for a price. Remember, even for the fool who says there is no God, but shows mercy, in this life, will obtain mercies. For blessed are the merciful … And while there are those who are appointed as martyrs, who pay the ultimate price, in these services of love towards me, he will in no wise lose his reward, but that greater reward will find him. All, are named in my book, and numbered, until that number is complete. Does a sparrow fall to the ground and I don’t take note of it? Are these that are mine worth more than a sparrow? Surly, they were formed before my eyes in their mother’s womb, and I saw every one of their days, before there was yet any one of them.”

A third time this morning the Lord opened up this passage.

Mathew 25:41-46

“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

“Indeed the nations that bless ME, AND SEND THEIR ENVOYS to the TEMPLE of My DWELLING, even the place of MY HOLY HABITATION, where my SPIRIT has rest, will certainly be blessed in my revealing, says The Lord, the one who IS, WAS, and IS TO COME. The Alpha and Omega, the BEGINNING and the END, the BRIGHT and MORNING STAR.”

In The Governments of God

The Holy One of Israel

The subtitle of this series is HOW NOT TO BECOME A FALSE PROPHET  in The Governments Of God. The last word you will ever need to understand the house of cards we call Jezebel’s reign of terror.  Free of  charge, with out buying any books, or paying for a collection of CD’s this podcast explains what brings her in, what gives her power, and who will take her out. Remove your self from the witch hunt and get a fresh perspective. You may never have heard it explained quite like this. In this podcast confusion is laid to rest and the ports of entry exposed that gives the QUEEN OF WHOREDOMS her place.
God Of Abraham Isaac and Jacob
We can bind and loose all day, intercede all night, and never impact her stronghold. Yet, the dynamics that will destroy her influence, and eradicate the usurper’s power from the Church, is clearly given to us in the scripture. Many who are leaders teaching on this subject, are stumbling around with the beam of Jezebel’s staff, clearly, protruding from their eyes, as they poke about the chamber of the bride, leaving bleeding tears in their wake. You will be pleasantly surprised to see how simple casting down Jezebel, really is. 

New Episode With Remnant Nation Radio

 

Not Many Wise Not Many Noble

The difference between the many who are called, and the few who are chosen. It all lies in our response to the word of God when we hear it. What stirs hell to attention? You. What you do with what you are given. The kingdom of God belongs to those who take hold of it. Not many wise, not many noble, but those considered weak by this worlds standards, putting to shame the strength of this world. HIS strength is made perfect in our weakness. To become a champion of the faith is to respond to the call of God, trusting Him with our lives to do the impossible, through us.

The Bud is Yet in The Vine

Repost From the Page:

The Bud is Yet in the Vine

There is nothing hidden that shall not be made manifested and those things done in darkness shall be brought out into the light!   Luke 8:17  God sees the unfolding of the bud yet with in the vine, as well as he sees, and reveals, the hidden agenda’s of scheming men.

Did you know that Jesus said, “The words that I speak to you are spirit and they are life? Therefore the  things of the spirit must be spiritually understood.”

Luke 8:18  Jesus : “So pay attention to how you hear. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given. But for those who are not listening, even what they think they understand will be taken away from them.”

Divine Pruning- To be subtracted from that we might be added to.

This past year has been the culmination of a season of pruning for those marked for leadership in the body of Christ. All of us who press on into the upward call will find ourselves in and out of these seasons of pruning, where God is removing dead works, and unproductive clutter, out of our lives. Often times, we are so preoccupied with expansion, and growth, we overlook the necessary principles of maintaining healthy, and stable, businesses, ministries, and relationships. This season of pruning, for many, has  resulted in cut backs.  Ministries, outreaches, businesses, and perhaps even a loss of these things, leaving those who have gone through this, a sense of bareness, but it is for our good that the dead things that have no fruit in them are cut away. There are going to be abrupt changes taking place, in so much, that literally we will find what was relevant one day, not at all the next. Looking back a year from now will seem such a faded distance away. Change is in the air. God sees down the line a lot farther than we do. He will get you ready if you’re willing. The baggage we throw our world into, will take wings. WE must put       all our trust in Him.

Those destined to serve in divine government have been sorely pruned. The missing branches, taken out of our lives, and ministry, that we thought would fulfill us, were ill equipped, or incapable of producing what was needed in the governmental authority God is preparing his people to rule in, as we move into  the decades to come.

The weakened, fruitless, or diseased, branches that would betray us under the pressure of appointment, and position, were cut off, to make way for a stronger, and more productive branch, to take its place. Have faith, what seems to be loss is preparation for great gain.  This is 2011, this is 2012. Subtracted from, to be added to, in preparation for  government rule.

Philippians 3:13-14

New King James Version (NKJV)

Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,  I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

The Kingdom of God Suffers Violence, And The Violent Takes it By Force

However, there has been another kind of assault against those marked for ruler-ship in the kingdom of God. And this one is of the kind that David and his men suffered in 1 Samuel 30. It is another kind of “removal or subtraction” and that is one of a healthy limb, cut off, or taken by the enemy. A malicious separation by the thief who comes to steal, kill, and destroy.

In David’s story we see an aggressive campaign to restore what has been stolen, and a lesson learned regarding a militant watch required on the home front, even as we are off in foreign lands working for the Lord. The story of David and his men (that I encourage the reader to review) speaks of those who are left to watch over the home front receiving like honor, as those in the field.

One area that will bring much healing in the body, and already has, is this subject of honor. Giving honor to those to whom honor is due, will continue to be the healing balm of restoration, and unity for the Body of Christ, as we move forward into a new church era.

The Davidian Rule takes back the lost and stolen. It gives honor to whom honor is due, recognition to whom recognition is due. It Sees the part everyone has in the whole, and rewards it. 1 Samuel 30:21-31

A Sum of All Our Yesterdays, the Beginning of All Our Tomorrows.

  For the older saints who still have a few years of work ahead of them, they are seeing, what seems to be no end to it, no retirement possible, in the natural, to do the things they wanted to do for the kingdom of God. Their years of spiritual warfare, and the wrong decisions that others have made, feels as if it has taken from them momentum, time, and money … the actions of others impacting what should have been stored up for their latter years.

Now  many are seeing a world that has sown to the wind, and is reaping the whirl wind. The result of sin, and disobedience. How it has impacted there own lives even though it wasn’t from choices they made. As David, they have come home from work, from ministry, from obedience to God, only to find their family members in captivity, their finances depleted, their house, and wares worn out; surrounded by comrades who themselves are angry, and disenfranchised.

The answer to much of this is walking in the revelation that the bear market has nothing to do with the kingdom of God’s economy, but we also, have to remember we are living in this fallen world and the murderer and thief is still at large.

The good news is, Satan cannot win, and even when he does seem to win, that is when he really looses! It is God’s good pleasure to restore to us what has been stolen.

Campaigns To Retrieve the Lost and Stolen

Now is the time to pull all stolen resources out of the camp of the enemy. Calling them out in the name of Yeshuah. (The God who saves) Just as David and his men went after their family and wives who were stolen from them while they were out to war, so there are those in the body of Christ, who have been out doing the Lord’s work and have come back only to find their home pillaged by the enemy. The weakest link in the family/body being zeroed in on to penetrate walls of defense, to get in and raise havoc.

You may not see how it was persecution, but I assure you that for many, that is exactly what it is. You did nothing wrong. A weakness that had nothing to do with you was exploited to the hilt, not because of your wrong, but because of what you were doing right.

Yes, some of us make messy beds we have to sleep in and God is merciful, but this I am talking about is something that would not have been exploited like it was had it not been for WHO YOU ARE.

You will need all that the enemy has taken from you back, for the days ahead. And it is there for you to retrieve, if you will believe. This translates into that which has been stolen from our homes, finances, and families, our church families, and even God’s people through out all nations, for those who are believing for the lost on that level.

Pent up justice, and that thing stolen- from those who have been faithful, is held up for that day of exchange that God has assigned, in a time when it will be needed most. The riches of the wicked, and illegally obtained wealth, is laid up for the just. You have been waiting to long. Now is the time  for you to mount up for battle, and demand the thief to restore all that has been stolen- with interest!

Our Own Experience
A few months ago we did just that, we began a prayer vigil, and stand; demanding what has been stolen to be returned. After a few days of prayer we had a break through. The lord gave me a vision. I saw my self walking through a battle field, nothing was left but abandoned tanks, and burning debris, the earth was scorched. I then came upon an abandoned camp, up next to a mountain. There was nothing left in the camp but smoking debris and broken equipment. I felt that what was stolen in the camp had been retrieved, but my eyes fixed on clefts in the rocks of a mountain side, next to the camp.

I walked over and began to search into the clefts and ravines. As I did I began to see souls coming up from between the rocks, they were missed when the campaign to retrieve the stolen, had previously gone through. I Saw Parcels and a U-Haul Bringing Back the Lost and Stolen.

I have had the lost, and stolen restored before, but this was something else. Much more was at stake than what we could possibly have known. When we obeyed God and began this campaign, we saw the Lord work a mighty work. I saw in the spirit a U-Haul truck full of goods. The Lord said, “In a few days there will be three parcels coming in, little things as a down payment, but behind that is a haul. Keep standing, believing, and praying.” A few days after that my camera that had been lost for a year was retrieved. A couple of parcels came in the mail, items left behind from traveling, another parcel was a financial blessing that restored an unjust loss; as He has promised these three parcels came in as a marker for more to come …

To Go the Extra Mile, To Wait Upon the Lord For One More Hour …

It was there the Lord reminded me of something that happened many years ago. We suffered the loss of a fledgling work of the Lord where people were getting saved, healed, and delivered, and this loss came through betrayal. I began to include that situation in our prayers for the recovery of the lost and stolen.

A few days later came the haul. The lives and souls of precious human beings. I can testify that our prayers for the return of that which has been stolen has measured out in souls. Even a new mission presented itself in subsequent days from this focused prayer for the stolen to be returned. God is an awesome warrior who retrieves the lost at every cost, for He has done that, even to the shedding of his own blood at Calvary, for the remission of sins.

 What the thief has stolen shall be restored. Many of us in ministry have been interrupted, or intruded upon by the enemy, the cost has been souls, and I shudder for those who have involved themselves in treachery in the midst of God’s work. But in Christ’s kingdom nothing shall be lost, none of His shall be forgotten. He will go the extra mile as the good shepherd always does, not satisfied that He has secured the 99, he continues searching for that one missing.

What we do in the kingdom of God must be done with intent. Make the decision to try again, go back one more time, take one more search party, lead one more campaign in the spirit. Didn’t Jesus say, “Could you not tarry one more hour?” Could we not go back one more time, try once again, and this time believe for all that was stolen to be restored? Ultimately, that is summed up in souls of lost men and women, and hurting boys and girls.

Many times finances hinder the work of God, yet, He promises us that He gives to us all things pertaining to life and Godliness, those things are available to us to fulfill God’s purposes in the earth. If finances are not coming through, it is not because of what God will not do, or what He has not provided. It is because of what the enemy has done. I don’t understand asking God for prosperity, I do understand telling hell to get off of what God has already given us, to serve Him with.

We must take our authority and exact from the kingdom of darkness those things stolen away and hidden in it. God wants us to take back wealth, time, health, strength, all for souls, all to advance His kingdom. He said, ” I have given you power to tread … The kingdom of God suffers violence, but the violent take it by force.  

And how is this done? Didn’t Jesus say, the words that I speak to you are spirit and they are truth? That we war not against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness in high places? Are we not to command the night to bow to the day, with a two edged sword in our hand, and the High praises of God in our mouths? Speak as Moses spoke to the spiritual Pharaohs of the land and say, God has said, “Let my people go?” Our part should not be left undone for He has said, “Go into all the world …  these signs shall follow them that believe in my name …” it is up to us to take possession of every realm and dominion, for He has given it to us.

The bud is yet in the vine.
