A Glimpse Across the Great Divide.
Dear reader as a servant and intercessor of the Lord Jesus Christ, I’m about to share with you a true encounter I had, in March of 2016. While it has taken me six months to grasp an understanding of what I have seen and heard. This is a large portion of that encounter but not all of it. If more is released for me to give, then I will add it here when appropriate. I am trying not to conjecture towards my own limited lens, regarding the millennial reign of Christ. Attempting only, to report what I heard and what I saw.
It was about nine in the morning and I was busy in my routine, I became very sleepy and sat in the arm chair in our living room to rest a moment, this is very unusual for me to do. I fell asleep. In my sleep I was awaken by the sound of a bird caught in the exhaust pipe above the stove range. When I stood up, I suddenly found my self walking through a small honey bee swarm, that buzzed in through my front door, with a ray of sun. After I gently swiped at the honey bees and got past them un-stung, I remember saying to myself, “Wow, the bees are back!”
I went to see how to get the bird out of the exhaust pipe above the exhaust hood, but when I got there the sound wasn’t coming from the exhaust pipe, so I turned around towards the sound of tin and flopping wings, and found two soft brown doves moving, and flapping about, in a very large pot that had been set on the table. They had knocked the pot to the floor, and I thought that must have been what woke me up. When I walked over to the pot I shewed them out. They didn’t seem too afraid of me, but flew off deep into the house, and then came back and darted out the open front door. I then realized this was how the bees must have come in.
As I stepped out the door I felt like the porch was in a much deeper shade than normal, the deck felt damp and the porch was closed with the overgrowth of a couple bushes that seemed to have tripled in size. A deck that catches the full morning sun now only had a sparse stream of light coming through it. I caught a glimpse of my pear tree over to the side of the house and it was in full bloom, this was why the bees were all over the place, I could here them buzzing around the blossoming trees. But the pear tree was noticeably bigger, wider, and fuller than what it really is, for all my fruit trees are juveniles and bear little or no fruit yet. I then noticed the shade came from the bushes and trees around the house that was advanced in age and size. Much age and much size. I walked out off the porch mesmerized by the change in the yard. How can this be? The sky was beautiful blue, the grass vibrant green. Children were playing in the pasture across what was once a road, in front of our house.
The defined tree line along the road was no more defined. The smaller evergreens in the pasture were now towering, it was a nice play area. Park like- rather than the pasture it is now. There were children playing there, two boys specifically were playing baseball with a bat and ball. They had casual clothes on t -shirts and jeans, they looked like they could belong to a family in our neighborhood as far as physical likeness, but that couple is older with no children of that age. I walked over to the side of the house and saw the fence and fence line gone in the back yard, there was a school bus painted mid-night blue over to the side of my property where the fence use to be, it appeared people lived in it. It seemed like a pleasant little place. Most amazing was the road in front of the house, it was almost completely overgrown, and was now a broken asphalt path. I began to understand that I was at my home years into the future.
I began to pray and acknowledge that I was in the future. My property, on the outer foothills of the blue ridge mountains, in North Carolina, is in a country setting. It seemed to feel like a village in a country setting, now in the time of this vision. I don’t believe I was visiting MY future, at all. But, the future of this place. As if I was a visitor of another time because of a conversation I was about to have. Looking around was a pleasant experience; it just felt relaxed, but I wondered why the county roads were not kept up. I wondered what happened that made everything around me seem even more “out in the country” than it was before, and then grow like a village at the same time. Life seemed so simple, and restful, there were no sense of restless striving.
A young male adult stood with others across, what use to be, a county road in front of our house. I asked the young man who was walking around with bigger children and young adults what year it was, sort of laughing because I knew that would be a funny question, he knew what I was asking but he had to think about how to tell me. He said, “Well, it’s about 25 years from your time.” I could see for some reason it wasn’t that easy of an answer. I later surmised it must have been hard to say, being that I was visiting from the previous age. Otherwise I have no other reason to believe I was in a new time.
I knew from the beginning I was not in heaven, nor was I in what would be my personal future, but I was visiting the area I live in now 25 years after my time. (The young adults exact words.)
I looked to another older young woman, (older than the youngsters in the group) and asked her if this was still America. Again, I felt a little embarrassed to ask what would be to them a bazaar question, but somehow they knew I didn’t belong in that age, and so they seemed to expect this of me. She smiled and for a loss of words said, “Well, sort of yea, but not really.” Later, I thought I should have asked if this was still the United States. My mind went to Jerusalem, at that point and I wondered what we were to them over there. So in this vision I may have believed I was in the 1000 year reign of Christ.
The earth felt like a near utopia, that doesn’t look, in this place, much different then it looks now. There is a very distinct difference in the *atmosphere, and that seemed to be the biggest change. I thought later, that would make sense, if we were in the millennium of rest. In the vision I began to believe that I was visiting the millennium 25 years after Christ’s return. After watching children play with a bat and ball that both appeared to be very old relics of the game, I walked into a new scene.
It felt like the same part of the country, I was in, but now I’m seeing more modern looking structures. When I say modern I mean newer. It was like a research center, and medical out patient center all at once. I had a feeling that extreme weather was no longer an issue when constructing these buildings, because they had an in door, out door, quality to them. I sensed that there were advanced technologies while basic living in some areas were even less modern then they are right now in my time. It never occurred to me a research center or medical facility would exist after Christ’s return.
But, when I read the bible more closely, after this experience, I don’t know why I had that notion. I’ll explain more later. I know now that much of who we are in Christ at present, will be in a full blown continuum, in the time when “We will know even as we are known.” If we continue in Christ. The seed will be of the fruit but much, much, more. In fact the fruit will be firmly attached to the vine. Yet, I was in the state of still seeing in part. I was in the state I am now. So this whole experience has been a struggle to understand more of those things I do not know.
There was a woman with a lab coat on; again, very pleasant, and the first to speak to me directly, before I spoke to her. She was another **young adult.
The technician was smiling and telling me what the center was doing, this is what she said: “We are getting rid of diseases in the earth. Many are gone now.” At the moment she said that I imagined that this was a process of the healing of the nations. As if disease, like flood waters were abating from the earth, and it would need professionals to be employed to help sweep it out forever. This is the first time I thought about the daily life of post tribulation living. Each morning there would be a work of restoration to tend to, for the post tribulation survivor and earth born. The three adults that I spoke to may have been teachers. None of the children seemed to notice me, or look directly at me. I did wonder about these young adults who were 25-35 years of age who would have been 0-10 When what happened to me occurred. If it was 1 Thessalonians 4:16 ?.. And the dead in Christ shall first rise, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up with the Lord … Were they caught up? They looked like the children and I, natural born. They didn’t appear to be different. No one did. However, the young adults did seem to be sort of shepherding these children.
For the first time ever, I began to grasp that daily living in the new time would not be extremely and abruptly altered in Christ’s return, among those who survived tribulation and would live on afterwards. In fact this caused me to look up Is 51:11 and I saw it in a new light. (Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; an everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain [reach for and acquire] gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away [SORROW SHALL FLEE AWAY]the Hebrew translation can read like this: grief/curses/vexations shall ABATE, VANISH, and/or FADE AWAY. So in the reign of Christ on earth, in their reaching for Him they shall find Him, the fruit of that intent will be for the picking, this will displace the other. Grief, sorrow, vexation, and curses, will in exchange, recede from them.
Like flood waters they abate away as in Noah’s day; as the nations that REACH for the fruit and harvest the leaves of the tree in their pilgrimage to ZIon. So they shall obtain the promise and provision of God, as we do now by faith. In obeying His instructing for blessings in the earth. A companion passage is Revelation 22:2 (and down the middle of the main street of the city. On either side of the river stood a tree of life, producing twelve kinds of fruit and yielding a fresh crop for each month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
The young female with the lab coat on, then said, “You know, speech impediments and dyslexia are caused by a demon. “She said, “We cast them out to cure that problem.”
When she said that I was taken back. Always supposing demons or unclean spirits would go to the pit with Satan. But does the bible say that? When I looked into this I saw popular commentary assuming such a thing. But nothing is particularly said about that in cannon of scripture. However, in books most Protestants call companion books to canonized scripture, found among the dead seas scrolls, for example, even the book of Enoch that is actually quoted in scripture, there is great detail of what demons actually are and when their “time” is come. There is reason enough to believe it is after the great Judgment. I know that I could be trying to super impose this experience on my grasp of the end times. This experience is more real to me than my understanding of eschatology. Which has changed over the years, and is more of a frustration to me, having heard every view I think there is, and seeing the right and wrong of every one of them. Here I Am.
When the technician was speaking to me, I had a knowledge, or an awareness of an abode or dwelling that was far from any natural light radiating from where we were. It appeared to be upon the edge of things at a distance hardly visible and I’m not sure I saw it with my natural eyes. I saw it during the following encounter, that was what I would describe as a place of lesser light. A side note expelled away, that I had no time to explore.
What happened next is I saw a woman sitting in a chair, like a dental chair in this medical office, that was sort of inside and outside, (I felt nature very close to what we were doing.) The woman in the chair had a speech difficulty that centered from the language part of her brain. The woman in the medical coat told me it was a demon causing this, and asked if I would like to cast it out. I said sure, so I turned to the woman and said, “In the name of Jesus Christ the son of the living God I command you to come out of this woman and go where you know you’re suppose to go.”
When I said this a slight shadow transposed from her face and then lifted away. I saw in the spirit that outer place where this demon left to go. It felt as if each time this happened there were less of these in the world to deal with, among mankind. This spirit seemed to operate like a message scrambler on the frontal lobe of the brain where words and letters were stirred out of sequence. Everything was there that they wanted to say but not in an organized order to say it. I never had it so easy to get rid of an unclean spirit. Nor such a sense of it being vanquished. After that we were done and the lady was thankful, and then I was on my way.
I was back in my front yard and the young man I met at first, was among a group of people that were now standing, partly in my front yard. I looked over to say good bye to him, and began to go back into my house, the young man then called out to me kind of urgently, and said a word for me to know before I went back into the house. As if he knew I was going back to where I come from, and he wouldn’t see me again. As soon as he yelled out the word to me, from across the overgrown path, I wanted to say, “What is that?” But then I woke up in my arm chair back in my own time, which was still in the morning of March 2016.
He seemed to just say one long word, or a mashed up phrase, but when I woke up, I realized it was a play on three words mixed together. They were magnitude, megaton, (or magnetron) and the one that really stood out was Marduk. At that point I had no idea what the young man meant. Except I thought he may be trying to tell me about a cataclysmic event that would happen in my life time. But, I was relieved it didn’t seem to hurt this area that we lived in.
The lady that had an evil spirit cast out of her, must have been alive in my time. She was over 50. I puzzled over the words I heard for several days, asking the Lord for understanding. I looked up the word Marduk and really didn’t connect it to anything that seemed connected to my experience. Until a few weeks later in April, when my husband and I was listening to a you tube channel, explaining NASA’s recently mentioned Nibiru acknowledgment, that was in the news in January. The heavenly body was named by another name that I had never heard before. This reputable Christian broadcaster and scientist called it the Marduk Star. A heavenly body that passed earth about every few thousand years. Marduk is mentioned on a Wikipedia search when searching Nibiru.
Disease and the millennium
Would disease not be immediately banished in the millennium at the return of Christ? As you can see I think I was in the millennium. According to this view of the future, as it seems, it is not. But in due process. Healing for the nations is issued from the city of God according to the book of Revelation. Healing was in the leaves. If the nation’s were already instantly healed, we would not need the TREE FOR THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS. Jerusalem will be the hub for TEACHING PEACE and honoring CHRIST; rewards of PROSPERITY AND HEALTH WILL COME TO THOSE NATIONS that honor Christ. Will that manifest in natural medicines and medical knowledge right down to removing unclean spirits, case by case in this instance? Is there scripture that opposes that?
The beast and false prophet are thrown into the pit, and Satan is bound for a thousand years. But what about evil spirits? Is God leaving that to the earth dwellers? Would it be like it was after WW II where those charged with war crimes were rounded up and convicted, some evading capture even for 50 years? While the top ranking officials were captured, sentenced, and jailed, even executed.
I saw that in 25 years, after my time, the place where I live right now changed very little. The houses and trees were untouched, vegetation was left to grow- on the other hand the pear tree had been under careful husbandry. As if it was an essential part of someone’s food source. There seemed to be no new construction, It was a countrified utopia. The children playing appeared to be related to the folks who live in the area. The boys playing ball were around the age of 9 and 10. Again I was told 25 years from my time. So, my time now, in the era of HIS return, ends at an unknown time. But seemingly soon, as pear trees have a 25 to 35 year life span, and these trees are about four years old now. Even though in the new age trees may live longer, I had a sense of being about 25 to 35 years in the future. ” 25 years from your time.” What does that mean? The house and growth around it looked 25-40 years.
Other than the growth of vegetation, the overgrown road, and the missing picket fence, time appears to stand still. Dress is not unusual, but an awareness of a new “time” is. But then this is only 25 years from wars and tribulation, right? Compared to 975 years yet to develop. If I was in the millennium. When I was taken to see some things at the medical/ research center it was very much modern. But not outlandishly techy. The architecture and landscape seemed fused. The medical technician had a test tube/ or something that was common to see in the hand of a medical researcher.
I know it was based on a progressive path, certainly, casting out unclean spirits was a part of that, which sort of blew my mind. In fact this whole experience came out of no where, and is based on nothing that I have been reading about or experiencing. The only thing that could have triggered anything is asking God if it was good that so many have followed us here, where the foothills begin at the blue ridge mountains, Moravian Falls just 45 minutes away.
Everyone is going to have to be settled in their own heart and mind where they are to be right now living in America. Personally, when we wanted to move to the Oregon coast 30 + years ago, I was given a series of dreams revealing why not to live on the west coast, why not to live on the border of Mexico, and why not to live where my husband and I were born and raised. We were sent to the East Coast on a prayer mandate in 2004, and then God told us to leave Wilmington NC., in 2008 after a dream that revealed the economic crash, and possibly a violent tsunami that surges 8-10 feet in land. The Spirit of God gave us 4 days to leave the city where we had a good job and our adult children. After a year of traveling the Lord relocated us to where we are right now. Family from the East and West have relocated to be here with us now, and this was a God thing 1000 percent.
But, before that we were sent to the Smokey Mountains, for 10 weeks of fastings and prayer, for our next prayer assignment. That is what landed us here, after one year, in a beautiful act of restoration after years of loss, for the gospel’s sake. Our two children heeded the warning to move away from the coast. I’m not one to focus about the end times and eschatology. I’m a teacher on healing, at heart. But, I have to steward the dreams and visions I’m given. I believe we have the call of God to change the tide- that we are not sinking as the Body of Christ but arising. Come what may we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. This is not doomsday for the child of God. But, the most powerful and awesome days to be alive.
I know we live where we live because God put us here. In the vicinity of the Moravians in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. If this encounter is the kind of an encounter that I’m personally sure it is, then I’m seeing the posterity of our neighbors will continue to thrive here. Yet, the house felt to be known as ours. Is it too incredible to believe?
The way this has changed me is that it causes me to realize the reign of Christ on earth is a transition of a dispensation where in some ways, in some places, the planet rebounds where it is left off, seemingly undisturbed. What suffering entails (here) may be political, economical, or psychological but the land, houses, and trees were undisturbed, in this place.
More telling, nothing harvested for warmth. Yet in the early 1980’s I saw sand dunes in-land way off shore at the border of VA and NC, where trailers were erected, not unlike those used by victims of hurricane Katrina. They were for detention, by the way. But the sand was what was surprising, so far in land along the coast. I saw this after the great evacuation, that took place on the west coast that went so far in land that people had taken off to the mountains of Idaho.
A few years later, in another dream, I saw the evidence of war manifesting as fiery plumes beyond the horizon, three clouds puffed up and then turned into black horsemen that ran across America. From the North West to the South East, could the three be economic woes because of wars? World War III being the 3rd?
Later, in the 80’s it appeared that I was standing in an area that had been evacuated, as if there to see what would happen next. Suddenly, I saw a pin point of fire blaze high up in the sky. I realized it was a rocket. It was flying from the west arcing south eastward. I was in rural central Idaho. A few minutes later the area was hit by a thermal wind, and fence posts edges, the driest of weeds, and house corners, combusted into flames. In another dream, a time later, I was standing on a road in the same place. Suddenly, a black horse busted out of the small bluff or ravine behind me where the home of the family who lived there had a name who’s escotology of names means messenger and/horse. It galloped over my head toward the same place the missile had gone.
Now being moved to this part of the country, those kind of dreams have ended, that involved living in places that were being evacuated, with a military presence; bombers flying down the pacific coast, and missal strikes; relocation and evacuation centers that once some are netted into, would become permanently detained. But these dreams ended when the Lord called us out of the Northwest. That journey began with a visitation from the Lord in 1997 showing me the last city we would live in, in the western part of the United States.
*In the book of Enoch demons and unclean spirits are not Fallen Angels, Fallen Angels are Fallen Angels. It seems that demons are the offspring of those beings born of women when fallen angels had intercourse with them. Genisis 6. Since this experience many items in the dream have been confirmed to me. One was that the exhaust pipe above the stove, there was only a hood and charcoal filter. I couldn’t understand why I thought a bird had gotten into the exhaust pipe when we didn’t even have one. But just one year later an update in our kitchen included an exhaust pipe, and I or the dream I had was not the reason it was installed. But a set of circumstances made it the logical thing to do in order to upgrade. There were other things as well, including the large pot the birds were in that I will write about one day. But this one: meeting people that bore a resemblance to some of the children I saw in the dream, was the most amazing- light skin hispanic children with auborn hair. This is some what unusual but later the older couple we knew of down the street had their little grandchildren over. They were going for a walk they were light skin hispanic, with auborn hair. Could these chilren grow up to be the parents of the children I saw 25 years after my time?
*Update: I saw our half acre of picket fence was gone, in the dream. The last 3 years of extreme weather made it necessary to begin tearing it down. After being on the property for 20 years. In the dream the only vehicle I saw was a midnight blue converted school bus parked on our property line where the fence once stood. The bus was well taken care of and still used as a dwelling.
1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before you, that you by them might war a good warfare.
The words spoken by the Spirit of God, over our lives, are weapons of war to fight the good fight of faith. They put in check the devil’s lies, and activate creation to align with the purposes of God. Remember prophetic words that speak into your destiny and declare them! That’s how we handle the Word of Life! Does a warrior lay his sword and armor down on a shelf, in days of battle? The answer is no. Therefore do not, and I repeat do not take prophecy (spoken over you) and put it on the shelf. As it has been taught in charismatic circles. Scripture says judge it. Out of the mouth of two or more witnesses let every word be established. Take it and wait on the Lord until He confirms it, or denies it. Let the other prophets (elders) stand and judge. Remember, a good tree bears forth good fruit, so consider the source. Knowing your prophet and being in relationship with prophetic people creates an atmosphere of proper prophetic processes. Why? Because where ever the Body Of Christ is functioning like it is suppose to, the full counsel of God is present. This is why these giftings often operate in companies of like minded anointings. For iron sharpens iron. Among such company words of prophecy will most certainly be clarified and quickly approved and activated. In the multitude of counsel our way is established. This is Kingdom. For He has set in the CHURCH apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. Ephesians ch 4. If they are not present among us than we are an incomplete body. We are just an assembly of stragglers, even if that assembly has assembled for years. The testimony of Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy, and to mishandle this gifting among the church of God is to mishandle the Word Of Life, for God breathed revelation testifies to the Son. It is time to throw out false teaching regarding the gifts of the spirit, especially when it comes to prophecy. We need them in our arsenal. The bible says, “Quench not the Holy Spirit. Despise not prophecy, prove all things, hold fast to that which is good.” 1 Thes 5:19-21 so there you go! Be the body do it right! Remember God breathed utterances and by them fight this noble war!
In Acts Chapter 16 we read about the young woman that attached her self to Paul’s entourage. Paul, who was called to Philippi to do an Apostolic work, became greatly troubled by what seemed to be this young ladies worship and shouts for people to come hear the way of salvation. What could possibly be wrong with that? She was a fortune teller possessed with the spirit called pythos. In this podcast:
Deana teaches on spiritual warfare, the small time operatives of Satan, and the principalities they are working for. Be not ignorant of the Devils devices! See how this same spirit is operating among us today, and how you can identify The Python Resistance, working among us.
Podcast: The Python Resistance.
The Python Resistance is an act of warfare (in the spirit realm) that targets apostolic moves of God, or new beginnings. From church government, to street outreach, or bible study, this operative is stirred up at start up. Listen to- The Python Resistance and get all the down load on this teaching that will help you recognize if that satanic work is undermining what you are being called to do, in your own life. – Deana Barnes
The Body of Christ has elbows and knees just like any body would have. They are the joints that connect the body, that mobilize the seperate parts they are connected too. When a connector anointing joins two different functions together in the Body of Christ, they themselves, enter into that function’s heavenly reward, for being the (connecting tissue of a work) in the righteous acts of the saints.
1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you are a member of it.
How to overcome demonic oppression, sickness, and addictions, as a child of God. While walking in freedom, in Jesus name. Deana gives scripture and an allegory on how to operate in self deliverance. They Run In Packs is a lesson on why we don’t play with stray dogs of the underworld, and how we can keep them from taking up residence in our own lives!
Remnant Nation Radio. A Podcast w/ Deana Barnes
This podcast identifies the culture of isolation in our society, and how western Christianity is the number one model to that effect. Deana shows the listener how far we have strayed from the true pattern of the church in reliance and accountability toward one another. Many have followed in the footsteps of our culture, leading them into isolation in the midst of a crowd. Working in cubicles in a packed office, living in subdivisions or gated communities, but still not knowing our co-workers or neighbors; riding subways and elevators with the same people every day, yet we are strangers. Worst of all, going to church and sitting amidst a congregation in utter isolation. While pastors lost in a sea of human misery, burn out while they them-selves suffer apart from God’s pattern for the church, there is a model to return to, if only we would. Listen to this podcast to identify the biblical relationship between layman and leadership in ancient Christian text. How we can begin anew by ESCAPING the Culture of crowded ISOLATION in our society.
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.

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!
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.
The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup: you maintain my lot. The lines are fallen to me in pleasant places; yes, I have a goodly heritage.
We are born into a goodly heritage as heirs of our Father’s Kingdom. While Satanic forces war against God’s creation that was MADE IN HIS IMAGE, children in our society are thrown into confusion over their identity- regarding the most basic details of their humanity. As the Body Of Christ, our standard is unmovable and unshakable. Our identity is found in the safe keeping of our Father, our inheritance is also! Deana teaches on identity in this podcast.
No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, said the LORD.
A podcast version of the article- The Ahab Jezebel Modus Operandi, with added commentary.
The Jezebel School of Cosmetology.
Could it be that most of everything we’ve been taught about “The Jezebel Spirit” is incomplete? And is actually often twisted by the very same darkness that animates her works in the earth? Have books and sermons dedicated to teachings on Jezebel missed the whole point, time and time again? I suggest to you that many of them have, serving to create the same kind of atmosphere that Jezebel promoted (punishing obedience to God) that existed in her day. This operative is bigger than we understand, and is enabling a world movement, far beyond what we could have ever imagined. Many have said it is all about power with Jezebel, I say the word clearly shows us, it is much much more. In fact as there was a kingdom under her and Ahab’s oppression, so most of Christianity, needlessly, suffers the cause and effect of this demonic power. Listen to this podcast by Deana Barnes.

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
1 Timothy 4:14-16
Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate on these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your profiting may appear to all. Take heed to yourself, and to the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this you shall both save yourself, and them that hear you.
1 Timothy 1:18-19
This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on you, that you by them might war a good warfare; Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
The Lord reminded me that among the body of believers in the earth, there are those committed to relationships. But not all committed to the purpose of why Jesus is calling His people to gather together. In fact, they honestly are not in understanding of it, and don’t have revelation beyond seeing meetings as opportunities for ministry, worship, and prayer. An outlet for them to give and receive. This is never going to change, until, somehow, purpose is instilled in them. When people understand the purpose of God for what they are doing, focus and commitment naturally follow. Nothing we do should be performance driven. But, purpose driven. Even people who have based their life on teaching this concept have become performance driven. It’s that easy of a trap to fall into. It happens when we lack vision. With out a vision the people perish, they perish in purposeless living. With out a vision they cast off restraint. They become listless like a ship with broken sails, blown about with every wind of opinion, pushing against them.
Because of that Churches become entertainment centers with an activities director, keeping people interested, preoccupied with making everyone happy. Rather than building relationships focused on obeying the will of the Father.
When God’s people lock in on revelation that they are with each other (where they are) for a reason – then comes single mindedness to the purpose. A unified understanding of what God is doing, and what our part in it is. In that comes focus that produces commitment. Commitment to purpose sees what is clutter. We are lively stones that God wants to cut, polish, and fit into place, for His purpose. People that allow long gaps to go by with out fellowship and assembly with one another, have other commitments. Right our wrong this is just the way it is. While we all have our lives that we are living, the sense of divine purpose brings the order of God, into it. What is clutter to our own households, in how we live, and what we do, determines destinies.
Contending For Purpose
If destiny cannot be thwarted or derailed, than Paul would have never had to admonish Timothy with the scripture of 1 Timothy 1:18-19 and 1Timothy 4:14-16 – (Don’t neglect your gift. Weaponize prophecy that was prophesied over you. By it do warfare!) This is how we are to engage the enemy that resists the purpose of God in our lives. Despite what we’ve been told most prophecy is conditional to our own commitment to realize its fulfillment. Many saints have desired prophecies (spoken over them in their lives) to come to pass, but have never engaged them as a tool to contend for the will of God in their lives. Also, for lack of knowledge and understanding many have been stubborn about how they believed they should come to pass. When we do warfare in the language of the prophecy we speak according to the will of the Father. When we suppose we know how God is going to bring it to pass we put our self in places and situations we don’t belong. Many that have fulfilled prophetic words spoken over their life, (my self included) have said this, “It didn’t happen as I supposed it would. Yet, God was faithful.” How is it done? If we walk in the Spirit’ we will not fulfill the lust of our flesh. Having no agenda but love. Embracing the fact we may not comprehend all that God is doing, nor have we obtained yet all the promise, but still we press on with Paul’s words in mind…
I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth to those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing you be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this to you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
Mockery is a very strong and evil spirit that can take hold of people’s lives, and conversation. The spirit of dissimulation, is rampant in our world today. This is the definition.
DISSIMULATION, n. L., to make like; The act of dissembling; to hide under a false appearance; to feign or make false pretense; Dissimulation may also be simply the concealment of opinions, or sentiments of purpose; but it includes also the assuming of a false or counterfeit appearance, which conceals the real opinions or purpose of ones words or actions. Hypocrisy.
In other words, let not our love be fake. Do what we can to really love, be honest. Be real. Don’t play along if you don’t understand. Present your point in earnest desire to build a bridge not a wall. If our prayer life is real with God like this, we can open up to others, as well. When we go to Him and say what we feel, even knowing it probably isn’t right, at least we give Him something to work with. Fear of others breeds dishonesty, it will be the first thing God empties out of us, when we earnestly come to him for deliverance from a spirit of dissimulation. It may take a process, but if we commit ourselves to being genuine with people, we will find many spots and wrinkles being removed from our garment, out of obedience to Paul’s admonition on love.
Spiritual gifts are given in seed form, distributed by the Holy Spirit. WISDOM seeks them out. Understanding matures you in them, and knowledge brings skill. It’s the three legged stool of potential. One missing leg will throw off the balance.
None of this means a thing unless our gifts are activated by faith! Stepping out! These signs will follow them that believe, in my name they shall … Mk 16:15-17 Beloved desire spiritual gifts, but then I show you a more excellent way. Love, love, love. Heals all wounds, wins all battles, endures all things; it doesn’t give up, it is not puffed up … desires Christ to be perfected in others. Love will lay it all down, throw the crown to go find you. Shed the robe, take up the cross, to free, heal, and keep you! *John let go, died alone, so CHRIST could have what was John’s own … brethren. That was love.
The gifts are a promise, a token, and part. It’s not where you finish, it’s only the start. A portion of heaven come from above, the maiden voyage of Noah’s dove … of all these what remains is love, tested, and tried- of all these things endure and abide … in LOVE. Remember Joseph’s coat and colors, how he was despised of his own brothers? They put him into foreign hands, the prince a slave in heathen lands …They will call you names, the lord of flies, your coat of colors will be despised, but you will learn to shake that dirt, and take his name to the ends of the earth. For a heart in famine will listen close, they won’t deny the Holy Ghost … to feed them. For whom they rejected will have HIS day, His light will shine and won’t go away. And nations will come with open sack, and the ones that bow will have no lack. For Joseph the Prince they left to die, is the apple of His Father’s eye. No less are you no less am I, whom love Him. So let not bitter the bitter thing be, call upon heaven and deeply breath! Remember His sacrifice, remember the blood, remember love comes in like a flood, let it have you.
When John was not yet cast into prison. –
He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. *He must increase, but I must decrease.

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.
