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.

In your book they were all written- days that were ordained for us to live, your thoughts were precious towards us.
Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.
You who bring good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!”
You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
“The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land.
In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be called: The LORD Our Righteous Savior.
Instead, they will serve the LORD their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them.
“‘So do not be afraid, Jacob my servant; do not be dismayed, Israel,’ declares the LORD. ‘I will surely save you out of a distant place, your descendants from the land of their exile. Jacob will again have peace and security, and no one will make him afraid.
“This is what the LORD says: “‘I will restore the fortunes of Jacob’s tents and have compassion on his dwellings; the city will be rebuilt on her ruins, and the palace will stand in its proper place.
So there is hope for your descendants,” declares the LORD. “Your children will return to their own land.
“Therefore say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Although I sent them far away among the nations and scattered them among the countries, yet for a little while I have been a sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone.’
There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt.
“so now I have determined to do good again to Jerusalem and Judah. Do not be afraid.
This third I will put into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The LORD is our God.'”

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.
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.
It was a quiet evening at sundown as I walked around the corner of my house. When I looked up towards the western sky I was startled to see our willow tree sorely pruned. I looked at it wondering if it would ever grow back to its original stature. All of its delicate branches curled down ward were gone. Could it ever be beautiful again? I felt a little sadness, somehow I knew it had to be this way. The tree was cleared of every pest infested, diseased, and broken branch. It was a clearing of the (would be) debris field before the storm. Something caught my eye to the right, as the sky darkened. A movement towards me, I then realized a book was being placed before me. It was a teal colored, thin, book with a long title; embossed in gold lettering. I couldn’t make out the entire title of the book, but was able to see these words very clear as the gold lettering glowed in the twilight, the words read-
Earlier that day I had literally drove past a tree much like the one I saw in this prophetic dream. It was located on the corner of Government and Sycamore. Immediately, when I saw the tree pruned as it was, I felt the Spirit of God come over me and I knew a message would be drawn from what I seen, and one did. A recording of it can be found at Remnant Nation Radio with Newine Pouring. The Winnowed and The Pruned along with Clearing The Debris Field are two parts of a whole. One addresses Christian America, the other, all of those in Christ. To drive home the point, the city I live in had began to prune trees away from the power lines up and down the streets, they did this the entire week I was preparing to record the pod-cast. I could not help take from that, a parallel of how much our broken, pest infested, and diseased branches of government are needing this word regarding the winnowed and the pruned, in order to retain its power and influence in the earth.
Weeks later, when an ice storm rolled into the region our little community was the few that did not have power interruptions. The fact of the matter is that we will have storms, how we fare when we do depends on our preparation, and readiness to respond to the Spirit of God. God wills that NO MAN perishes, but that all come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Most of us understand the significance of the Sycamore tree explained very well in the book called the Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. While we as a country have pushed upward and onward, endeavoring to rebuild where we have been broken, we have ignored the lessons of the kingdom regarding what it takes to become strong. Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. To be God strong in America we must decrease, bow our greatness to the sovereign God in repentances, and become the people who are the winnowed, and the pruned. This in return will remove the debris field before the storm, rather than after, where time and chance takes its erratic path.

Open your mouth and I will fill it, says The Lord, have I not fashioned you to be my mouth piece!? To speak my words that I have placed in your heart to speak? The beating of your heart moves into your ears, and you continuously say, “Is this you? Is this you, Lord?” Did I not say I would fill you full to overflowing, when you seek me? Did I not say follow me and I would make you fishers of men? Can you do it apart from my Spirit; shall I not draw them first to myself by my invisible hand? Shall not I make your way prosper, to plant the heavens and lay the foundations of the earth with the words that proceed out of MY mouth? MY word shall not return void- BUT YOUR words are dead all ready, they lay ON the ground and cannot get up for there is no life in the dribbling of the wisdom of MEN.
Yet, it is my WORD that has accomplished the thing that I SENT HIM to accomplish. And even now the NEW MAN of whom CHRIST is the head- I have sent out like a TRIATHLON runner, who treks land and sea, mountain and valley, highway and hill, to do my work. More so, shall he scale the walls of hinderance, climb the face of resistance, shoot forth the arrow of prophetic proclamation, and swim the tides of change. In the moonlight of midnight he scans the horizon and discerns the silhouettes of covert, and the tree lines that walk like men, he blows the trumpet in Zion! He scouts from the distant shores- what I declare as hidden is hidden, what I declare as seen is seen, and the WORDS I speak! says The Lord, are spirit and they are truth.
Isaiah 51: 4 Listen to me my people; And give ear to me … MY righteousness is near, My salvation has gone forth, THe coastlands will WAIT UPON ME, and upon MY arm they will trust.

When The Warrior of Faith Comes Home
By: dee http://www.newinepouring.com/
My name. My name. Child of mine, says The Lord, I have taken you out of warfare and have set your feet in a broad place. To occupy the victory that I have given you. Still, this one thing you must continue to do, you must walk your parameters, and consciously acknowledge your inheritance. In other words understand fully, I have brought you here for a purpose, so remain reasonably alert, you do this by using the power of my name against the enemy (rendered) toothless, yet nipping away at your mind to distract you.
Remember it is the little foxes that spoil the vine, the little cracks in the wall the enemy would dig away at. The places of insecurity, and fear, I would have you place these things, simply, under my blood. You are clean for my blood has cleansed you from all unrighteousness, no man can walk upright with out my help, I am the one who perfects your walk, it is I says The Lord, that is the author and finisher of your faith.
Often after years of conflict soldiers find it hard to live in the mundane, the day to day responsibilities of life, that is why you must look to me who is your source of joy, and will train you to find fulfillment even in that which seems mundane, or, monotonous. Once you have completely settled in this place I have ordained for you to occupy, the stage then will be set for you to move into the next phase of you life, that I have planned for you and yours.
These are times where advancement in my kingdom is made. But, to many drift in this place, and miss the purpose for why I establish my people in a land. It is that you will have a place to develop other realms of accomplishment, unattainable in slavery, unfathomable in the wilderness, and elusive in wars. This kind off accomplishment that I want to lead you to, can only be realized with in the established borders
of your inheritance.
This is where the arts flourish in any civilization, the natural world can testify, only a people at peace, and prospering, with in the walls of a city can pursue the more ornate accomplishments in life. In my name you shall … Silence the storms, the accusations, and mockery, of what should be for you peacefulness of mind, for it will be this place the enemy would seek to taunt you, and debate your good standing with me, my love for you is above all, and for every one of your concerns I have an answer, says The Lord.
It begins with the truth of my Word, the authority in my name, and the power of my blood. These things that you have entered into, these settlements, where the borders are not only being expanded, but the stakes are being run deep into the ground, is not the destination, they are stepping stones you need to establish a platform to where I am taking you.
The oak grows slow, but it is a great tree, tall and strong, much finds refuge in them.There is much more that I have for you, and your joy will be full in me, you will not be disappointed with what I have for you, let your heart rest in me for the desire of your heart is being fulfilled before your very eyes in an exceedingly natural way, so natural that you’re having a hard time connecting the spiritual, and supernatural significance of it in fulfilling your destiny. Stay the course, my faithful warrior, and above all else continue to love.
…and they shall be called OAKS of RIGHTEOUSNESS the planting of The Lord. http://www.newinepouring.com/
We have a lot of voices describing the chaos and the ruin, the gross darkness covering the earth, and great darkness the people. But, few are lending to the other side of that equation. We will walk among them in this world like morning at midnight. Christ in us the Hope and the Glory. Nevertheless, time is running out for those who do not KNOW the still small voice of God, those so acquainted with the shepherd’s voice …. that a stranger they will not follow. In times of plenty they learned to lean on HIM. Never once trusting in the chariots of Egypt. They are the ones who are moving out, to the front of the line.
the Church in the Nation Who Sits at Ease 9/4/2013. Dee
” … You’re in the habit of running red lights, you’ve done it so much that the stop sign means nothing to you, the light might as well be green – after all, “we are under grace”, they say, over, and over, again. Your ear has been trained upon the voice of your appetites all these many years, season, after season, judgement, after judgement. The smoke from distant troubles rises in the air, but, you say, ” it will never touch me, trouble like that will never come to me, it only happens in distant lands, in lesser civilizations. Know you not, says The Lord, these places once were great kingdoms in the earth, great civilizations, giving you much of what you possess even now? Assyria, Egypt, Babylon, Greece, and Rome, now a shadow of what was once world domination in their time. Be careful that the light you walk in is not, rather, darkness. World powers rise and fall but those who put their trust in me will not be shaken.
Look at your alliances, and allegiances, look at your partnerships, and pledges, have you struck hands with a stranger? Seek to loose yourself from those NOT of my kingdom. This is a time to step away from engagements that would yoke you with unbelievers, and the sleepers.The life cord should be detached at base camp. Not on the side of the mountain. Give the wayward slough time to find his bearings, time to feel the consequences, to grow his own legs, for his own good. This is the Mount Everest of all your days, you are getting acclimated at base camp, and you need to know your limitations and strengths, I am your guide, says The Lord, do you know my voice? Are you tethered in with those who will not cut the line on you? Are you yoked with me, or another? The mountain will reveal your alliance faithful, but then it is to late, these things need resolved at base camp. In your trial run, on better days, did you not see the frozen monuments of failure, miscalculation, sleepiness, and disorientation, riddling the landscape? Forever marking the days of former storms, reminding all who pass by, the cost of simple failures vary.
You lose a glove in the yard, you have a cold hand, you lose a glove on mount Everest, you could lose a hand. Even the guides themselves are found there, in the debri fields of mis-step. But, I am the guide that has conquered the mountain, that will never leave you, nor forsake you. I will carry you when you need carried, I will bring you through to the mountain top. I will guide you through the storm. I will never cut the line. I will bring those with you, but YOU must be tethered to me, and no one else, nothing else. Seeking to save your life you will lose it, to lose yourself in me, you will find your life, abundant. Then you shall be the beacon on the mountain top showing those below you the way. Go now while it is early, for the neck of the journey will bottle up in desperation, when those slow to awaken realize, time is of the essence.
The Lord says that His glory shall rest upon His people, kings will bow … the Lord says to Lift up your heads and look, the anointing breaks the yoke, the heavy burdens so many are burdened down with. In one moment, at His Word … burdens shall slip from off the neck, and shoulders, of those who seek the light, they will see His light upon the Church triumphant, from distant places, deep in the caverns of darkness, and crevasses of depravity. They’ll move toward the light set in great contrast against the night. They shall be brighter than the stars, those who abide in Him, the Living Word.
The Lord says that From this time forward many of you will no longer make general blanket statements for the sake of the masses, your words will be surgical, timely, and ordered, executed precisely, the way the Lord would command. Knees will shake at the precision of it all, as hearts will not only be revealed, but plans to deceive you, and to arrange your demise, shall bring immediate judgments. In many cases, while others beside them are left standing, they shall be astounded, they shall audibly cry out and confess their sins. Revelation, knowledge, and understanding will flood into the confessor that will overwhelm some like Paul, who was incapacitated for days. You will find yourself caring for some in such a state, whose own lifestyle they will have to hide from, in order to stay alive.
While Even now suspicions mar the relationships of many, as do misunderstandings, the Lord will bless His servants with dreams, visions, and supernatural knowings of the motives of others. As New Testament saints were guided by God through dreams and visions to meet and speak with certain individuals, so this same anointing to know – shall be prevalent in subsequent meetings, of the unknowns, in divine appointments. In so much, that you will ask The Lord about the ones He didn’t speak to you about, and this is by design, that He might lead you more carefully; and it will develop in you a more concise walk, in His way, that will uncover the treasures spoken about in His word, treasures hidden in darkness, and it will be those hidden in deep darkness that will see a great light. Is not that light Christ in you … the Hope and Glory?

This is a two part series describing what is at stake when we attempt to advance the kingdom of God. Kicking down the devil’s gates and expanding kingdom borders is not for the faint of heart. To expand the borders in any realm is a declaration of war. In this regard, spirit wars. A raw out doors broadcast with the sounds of the south! How to come out on top in all your endeavors in Christ. God wants to go before us and mow down the power of the enemy, that we might advance His Kingdom. Crossing satanic borders takes persistence, and determination, above all else it requires us to know the GOD WHO EMPOWERS His people to win the lost and take control over the satanic strongholds that bind them. Tune in and wait for prayer at the end of the show. Healing and a word of knowledge for those on the front line where the enemy at the gates and borders has tried to hobble your advancement.
