Do Christians need to be afraid of what is being called a Kundalini possession? Many people have become fearful of receiving a false Holy Spirit. Clearly if you are interacting with members of the occult: Psychics, mediums, mentalists, and palm readers, that would be a real concern. But, can Christians seeking the Holy Spirit in a Christian meeting receive a false spirit? Also, what about when some one is prayed for and they fall down and shake or jerk, is that a sign that they have received a false spirit? In this podcast David and Deana addresses those questions in: The Kingdom Divided.
Some people are not going to love this message but it needs to be heard. I’ve been around a lot of different kinds of Christians in my life, that seem to fall in one of two different catagories. Haze and clarity. The haze catagory comes from living in a life of constant compromise. Some because it’s all around them and they just have to deal with it, and others because they choose to live in mixture, and don’t intend to change. The difference between those two is transparency. The one that hurts and aches for clarity emits it. The other compartmentalizes their life of mixture and because of that is never transparent. You always know something else is going on and there just seems to be a haze, about them. Things that are simply unclear. Some where in the ambience of their world is a culture of accepted compromise. The other camp is clarity. Nothing is really that hard to connect with, and there is far less instances of confusion about them. Being on the same page is easy because they walk in the simplicity of God’s word. If something is off track in their private life they are transparent about it; love, joy, peace and their trust in God disperses the haze even if it’s their unfortunate situation that they live where mixture rules the religious roost, where they come from. I’ve seen this demonstrated over and over again in a time where the whirl winds of 2020 have left an invisible haze everywhere we go, but then joining with those of the Camp of Clarity, things become so very clear. Because clarity of heart is what brought them together. A place of no compromise. These understand this message, no matter what generation they belong to, young, old, gender, or race. There are certain fundamentals of the Christian walk we understand with great clarity in these modern times. We have a rod in this generation that seperate the sheep from the goats. It makes it very easy to know where to stand in troubled times like this- the only thing that could possibly make what I talk about in this podcast unclear is deception or a heart of rebellion. If after listening to this podcast it’s still not made clear to you, than mixture is not just where you live. But where you choose to stay. Coming into a place of clarity requires heart felt repentance. That’s it, that’s all. No matter how much we have compromised and made a lie out of our lives, God is a merciful God who loves us, and wants us to return to Him.
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I set you apart and appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
In this article I’m going to talk about prophetic dreams and visions we sometimes have of dignitaries and world events. What they mean and what we need to do with them. Starting off with some of my own experiences over the years and referring to them as examples. I believe that when you finish this article you will have more understanding to walk in your prophetic gift, in the area of dreams and visions, on a national and international scale. Even if you’ve never had a dream about President Trump, or another head of nations, the information is transferable, to other people of governing authority in your life.
God often uses our prophetic experiences to reach the lost, and change the course of lives. We can be His instruments in doing that by understanding the biblical gift of prophecy, developing skill by use, and the experiences others have had. It takes a company of prophets to raise well rounded prophets. Because iron sharpens iron, we need a prophetic presbytery among us for guidance, to help sort through the supernatural manifestations that come with believing in a supernatural God, who empowers our natural lives. A prophetic presbytery simply means a body of elders tried and tested in their walk with God, and can council on various modes of operation and application of the five anointings mention in Ephesians 4:11, to raise another generation up to fill the shoes that have come before them. He that regards a prophet in the name of a prophet receives the prophet’s reward. The same is true when encountering this age of prophetic out pouring upon the people of God. What efforts we take to receive of that treasure determines our development. Incredible as it seems, too many churches still don’t understand how to regard the giftings and anointings that God has set in His Church, in order for them to receive blessing in their lives. For as softly as the dove lands, so He lifts. We have rejected Christ’s ministry often, not recognizing the Lord’s visitations and answered prayer, when He as come manifesting through the various giftings and ministries he has set in the church. Because there are still many among the greater population of believers that lack teaching on how to properly respond to the gifts, and anointings, God has ordained in the church. There to equip them. A close study of Ephesians 4, gives us the blue print of what a real lamp stand host should look like.
Eph 4:11-16 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
Many believers are not prophet ready. Assemblies that don’t have them, yet call themselves a bonafide lampstand assembly, can easily be upset and even turned upside down, being visited by any one of those anointings, of the above mentioned five of Ephesians 4:11. That God has ordained to operate in the Church, on purpose; to bring growth, maturity, and edification. Simply, a revival is often just God setting His house in order with an apostolic wave in an anointed visitation. To set, and establish His order, where the anointings that he has raised up in service to the saints are activated and are “set” properly where they belong. We need this particular order among his people these days now, more so than ever before. The first century church was built upon the power of God that had nothing to do with the ability of man. So why do we still need this same grace and ability of God from heaven? Because we are in the last of the last days, the latest of the latter rains, for the end time harvest. Joel chapter 2! An amazing time to be alive! God is still pouring out His spirit on our sons and daughters, as not only old men are having dreams, and young men are having visions, but every age and gender in between.
If you follow this blog, you know that I call it a dream journal website. Most of the articles are derived from prophetic dreams and visions. When I began to pen these encounters the Lord said, “Teach others as you go.” So I try to reveal the prophetic process along with the actual dream and “word of the Lord” hidden in the mystery that dreams and visions often are.
The prophet that has a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that has my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? said the LORD.”
A dream that comes from the Lord is a carrier of a mystery, like the wheat stock is a carrier to a kernel of grain. It needs the entire mechanism of the wheat stalk to produce the grain inside of it; however, wheat needs a process to thresh it out and that is a learned skill. A dream with out a message is like straw in the wind. Any one can have a dream, but not everyone can unlock its mystery. It takes a spirit of wisdom and understanding to interpret dreams. While symbolism may be recognized to piece a dream’s meaning together- only the creator God can disclose its full intent and application, and He does that by the gifts of the Spirit, through His spirit filled believers. Pharaoh had a dream in the book of Genesis, but it took God’s servant, Joseph, to not only unlock its meaning but to provide the wisdom needed to walk out the word of warning it entailed. Joseph no doubt had an excellent spirit about him, as Daniel did. Now, among some prophetic circles a warning dream is declared as not from God, because it’s not pleasant. Their argument is that it doesn’t edify. The prophet Agabus in the New Testament, has even been called a ”mistaken” prophet who prophesied famine and the Apostle Paul’s bonds in Rome. But this isn’t supported by scripture because the Apostles and elders of the church responded to the warnings of the prophet Agabus. Whom tradition says was probably one among the 70 that was sent out by Jesus. This recognized prophet prophesied a troubling prophecy on both occasions, so it sort of ruins the narrative that all prophecy should be charming. But that’s the point, we are not called to CHARM any one. The testimony of Jesus Christ is the Spirit of Prophecy. In some of these more extreme camps of the prophetic, God’s warning system has been neutralized. We just have to look at the seven Churches in Asia, that Jesus told John to write to, in prophetic warning, to know that a prophecy, a message from God, has the power to shake you. The Testimony of Jesus Christ has caused many to be shaken, as it has caused many to rejoice. Some even teach that warning dreams are not from God, and while it is possible that a dream may have not been handled properly, inducing fear not hope, hopelessness, and not fervent prayer, we cannot disregard the purpose for them. In scripture the famine prophecy was taken to heart and the Saints made preparations for the famine. This is why we need a prophetic presbytery among the assembly of saints to process revelations and mysteries of God that pertain to the greater body of believers; because, there is safety among many counselors. Lack of this kind of safety net is the reason why many who have had powerful dreams of international importance, never see the light of day. Mostly because they don’t take the dream before the Lord for understanding. It’s just an interesting dream to them, and they leave it at that. For one, the kernel is not being processed out of the chaff, so its lost in the mystery that it is, and sharing it with out its interpretation, with out its prophetic run through, by a company of prophetic believers, sometimes is more harmful than good. When leaving it in its unprocessed form. Because some dreams that involve people we know may convey a message unintended. However, if it is processed through- than the word of the Lord is threshed out of it, having substance and continuity. In that form it is useful. At that point what needs to be done with it, (publicly or privately) is better Discerned. I have a couple hundred articles on this website. I may have a half baked idea or two. But it has always been my intent to make sure that prophetic dreams were not shared, until they had their time at the threshing floor of prophetic process.
1 Corinthians 14:29-30 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge. But if anything is revealed to another who sits by, let the first keep silent.
Proverbs 15:22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety.
Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war…
We can do nothing of ourselves it takes the gifts of the Spirit including wisdom to know how to separate the chaff from the wheat, and pull out the oracles of God, for the sole purpose to extend life not prophesy its demise. To build a wall of protection not tear them down. As Joseph was in charge of building grain silos to prepare for famine, so God’s people should have the ability to be the answer in days of distress for the nations as long as we are here. There are many occasions in the Bible where the Lord uses dreams, visions, and prophecy, to save lives not condemn them. Even in Job it is written that he terrifies us with dreams to keep us from the pit! The word of the Lord is needed in these times, to be more than just an encouraging word. His word needs released by his servants, his hand maidens, the Saints of the Living God to plant the heavens and to seed the earth with His word!
A Word About Sensory Over Load. Keeping the slate of your mind set apart.
As dreamers, seers, and prophets, it’s important that we keep pure that place where holy imagery is displayed in the spirit of the mind. In other words, too much exposure to fantasy, books, movies, games, or media imagery that is fantastic by nature, can create a life of its own in this world of sensational visual access. This is why, we ourselves, need to fast, like Jesus did, and go away into a quiet place to really hear and see clearly from God. I’m hesitant with prophetic encounters that come from people that seemed supercharged on mass media over load. That are avid gamers and fantasy story buffs. In the same way we should be mindful that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, that gifts of the spirit operate through this temple; so we should set ourselves wholly apart from too much of anything when it comes to our mind, as well as our body. When I know there is a chance that I might be ministering through the word or by the gifts of the Holy Spirit, I fast prior meals and refrain from sugar or coffee, that may cause my mind to race or my body to crash on a sugar high during a time when I’m really trying to settle in God’s presence and hear his voice.
This is why I believe that fasting and prayer together, positions us to hear from HIM more clearly, with greater prophetic accuracy. For decades I’ve assembled with the saints on this principle of pre-meeting fasting. On the rare occasion that I’ve had coffee or a meal, I’ve always regretted it. You don’t know the difference until you’ve made it a practice for yourself, for enough time to know the difference. This is just a suggestion, and of course we’re called to peace and liberty. I don’t see where Jesus commanded the disciples to fast, but He did say to them: “These kind don’t come out, but by fasting and by prayer.” So to me it’s like this, extraordinary encounters often follow after extraordinary preparation and readiness.
Notice how all new beginnings start with a work that roots out old systems in order to install new ones? All new beginnings must start out by rooting up and tearing down, before we can begin to plant and build. Why would we have to do that? It’s required in order to establish any new work. Old religious root systems are a hindrance to kingdom life! This Kind of activity that pulls things out of us in order to establish renewal is in preparation to make way for the work of Lord, in the spirit of Elijah for His second coming, as the spirit of Elijah rested upon John in Jesus’s first coming. People say, “But this is a time of great persecution!” As if that is going to slow the process down. When did persecution or even martyrdom ever stop the kingdom of God from being established? In fact according to my bible it actually accelerates its advancement.
Jeremiah 1:9-11 the LORD reached out His hand, touched my mouth, and said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have appointed you today over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and plant.”
Isaiah 51:16 And I have put my words in your mouth, and I have covered you in the shadow of my hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, You are my people.
–Is not my word as a fire? said the LORD; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:28
Is that hammer and fire retired now? Jesus’s words in the book of Revelation still are relevant to day. He’s coming back to destroy those waging war against Him with the WORDS of His mouth!
What does it mean to dream about Donald Trump, or a president, or dignitary?
These kind of dreams can have a personal application that is more about the dreamer and their life, that carries a message to the dreamer for themselves, or it can have a broader application, that has a national or worldwide significance. When we are interacting with dignitaries in our dreams, often the location of that interaction reveals the scope of its relevancy to us and others. So when we dream, if our encounters with them are in our home, our car, our town, or in our schools; than that usually sets the parameter or range of the dream’s application. Where that governmental authority or position may have impact in the life of the dreamer. It’s not uncommon for those diligent to pray for the nations to have heads of state appear to them in dreams, often revealing their prayer needs. When this happens we usually dream of them talking to us in their environment, or in places their policies will impact. Their prayer needs are with in the scope of what they discuss, show you, or things that are seen in the dream. For example I remember one dream I interpreted where a dignitary was pointing to his heart. Of course that would be the Holy Spirit prompting prayer for that individual and the condition of their heart. How do we know a dream has international significance? Often we can tell the impact of the dream by the surroundings. These type of dreams often put the dreamer on location. In a senate chamber, at the White House, in Washington DC., at the House of Commons; in the palaces of Kings, on battle grounds, mostly visiting them in their environment. Or, upon a world or historical stage. Many have seen president Trump in stadiums, and on athletic fields. I would say these dreams speak to the great contest he has been in, against unrelenting contestants. We may meet or witness kings, queens, emperors, tyrants, and prime ministers; over cities, lands, mountains, and seas, that we may prophecy regarding them over peoples, nations, and tongues, the decrees of God, and declare to them the burden of the Lord.
For one example I saw Putin and the Russian army in a tornado heading toward Syria before they engaged in the conflict there. I talk about tornados and their meanings in another article called: What Tornados mean in dreams. This was definitely one of international importance, and it was while we were engaged in prayer for the middle east. At the same time I saw the Russian church released upon the world stage having great impact beyond Russia, but more importantly among the Russian people.
Understanding the purpose of disclosure and its scope of relevancy is the key to understanding our role and influence as the church, when it comes to national and international events. Acts 21:12 regarding the Agabus prophecy of famine, is a blue print of how we should react as a church to these revealed events. Beginning with a council of leaders, to examine natural responses to the church in those places where God reveals events to come, whether they are revivals, wars, famines, or natural disasters. This is where the church has often failed, it’s not enough to just know by the Spirit, what others couldn’t possibly know. It’s to seek the mind of Christ to know what to do about it. Pray, fast, gather, give, or go?
Mandates and Assignments announced in dreams.
For example on election night in 2008, I dreamed that I was in the White House answering the front door. When I opened the door the presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama, his wife Michele, and their two daughters, were standing at the entrance door. This is how I learned that he had won the 2008 election, even though we went to bed early the night before, believing that John McCain would probably become number 44. The Lord spoke to me in that dream saying, ”The people’s house will accommodate them here, you will intercede for him.” There after I was given specific detail regarding prayer responsibilities for Obama and his administration. The first time I ever visited Washington DC., was during the Obama administration, on a prophetic prayer tour. We had many encounters during that time, that had prophetic significance. This dream was a sign for me to know that I was being commissioned by God for the task. The only person I had time to tell who was voted in as president, was my husband. I went down stairs before he had turned the radio on and told him Senator Obama, was voted in as our president. Even though early in the night McCain was projected to win in South Carolina, and that’s what we went to sleep on. In that dream my position was a servant at the door. The point of the dream was to reveal a prayer mandate that would last 8 years. The sign that accompanied that was the revelation that he had won the election through a dream. Only to be renewed again by another dream two weeks before Obama’s second election, that announced a second term, four years later.
I will confirm my word with signs and wonders following. Mark 16:20, Hebrews 2:4.
The first dream was given to me to know I was under a new prayer mandate, that took me out of my world as I knew it, and into a new commissioning. I began to have more dreams and visions of international events. Seeing the President and his family in the White House was a sign. A few days after that another dream brought me to the newly elected president’s inaugeration, where prayer mandates began to reveal themselves. There I saw the Clintons on Obama’s inaugural platform, joining him in his duties, and with them I saw baggage. This was before he announced Hillary would become the Secretary of State. Behind the scenes the dream revealed many lining up in the entertainment world to receive favors. I also saw an unruly perverse spirit manifesting through a child, that tragically appeared to be sexualized at an early age. This display was very unsettling to me, in the dream, and thank God only the PG version of what we now know exists, was being referenced. Still, for a long time I couldn’t believe that- that part of the dream was really telling me what it seemed to be saying. Until pedo-gate was exposed. With out question, this abomination of an association with child sexual abuse, was firmly attached to the Clintons, as they seemed to have introduced it to the platform they all now stood on. Regardless of what people think of Michele or even believe about her. In the dream she privately expressed disdain for the Clintons and what they brought with them. I saw activity in the back stage depicting what would come the days after, when Obama began handing out freedom metals. What was exposed in this dream would have national ramifications, of which we are only beginning to understand now. On October 17th, 2012, in another dream, President Obama took me up to a mountain peak on the presidential helicopter, and we landed on a mountain peak. He showed me the bald eagle. As I watched him pointing to the eagle it landed beside him on a tree snag standing 6 feet tall next to the president. The American symbol of the bald eagle then molted into the image and form of the president, until there was only one of them standing there. He then wanted to take me to a second mountain top that I could see from the first. But this mountain top was in the middle east. I didn’t want to go there. He got on the helicopter and I watched him fly to a high place and land on a peak east of Medina. I saw the whole map of the middle east like a decopage with events that was on display, that would later become history. One of which was Syria bleeding beyond borders like watercolors in fiery red and orange. I saw Obama in his second term become a lame duck president to the Saudis. I understood at the time the bald eagle, transforming into Obama, was the American nation fully transformed into the Obama Nation now, in our foreign policy, and would be firmly landing there in a second term. Naturally, when I woke up I knew then that Mitt Romney would lose the election, whom I encountered a year before, as he registered for the New Hampshire primaries, with Governor Sununu’s endorsement. Those 8 years after that first dream were extraordinary for me afterward. Because of the commissioning to pray for this president, it felt that my normal life as I knew it was on hold. Prayer, ministry, dreams, intercession, even traveling, brought me into spiritual encounters that were of national value. One of these events of national significance, occurred right after I had just told my tour companion that I was out of public ministry after years of being in it. Living a life of prayer and writing. No sooner do I peep out those words, do I find my self on the streets of Albany New York preaching in front of the state house with a news camera in my face, during an “Occupy Wall Street” rally, and then in New Hampshire standing right next to Mitt Romney, and Governor Sununu, as that photo op goes all over the world on CNN. I literally let the Governor stand in my place so I wouldn’t be sandwiched between them, as news people moved in. I had people looking at me trying to figure out who I was. How I got in that room with statesman, family, and friends of this candidate who was registering for the highest political position in the world, with what they called Sununu’s “Holy Grail endorsement”
Seers In Their Seasons Of Suddenlies.
That event started in the early morning hours on the same day, when the spirit of the Lord walked me down that same hall we congregated in, in a dream. I would call it more like a sleeping vision. The Lord told me to wear a dress and nice shoes, to do my hair and make up for that day because we were dressing comfortable, like tourists, during most of our travels. Again that dream took me out of my environment and put me right in the place I would be, just hours later having this encounter. I decreed protection over him, and prayers for his family, as I was placed immediately behind the Governor for several minutes, as we walked down the crowded corridor, with Romney in front and his son Tagg behind me. While secretaries and statesman filed out of their offices to greet him, and sheriff’s deputies flanked him on each side, we pushed on to the office where Mitt Romney signed the papers. While others were left at the door I was ushered in to the room. Later, I asked the Lord what all this meant and He said that I represented (in proxy) a commissioning to the Church. Saying, ”I want all my prophets this close to these positions in the land.” The dream that Obama would go a second term was in a time where many were prophesying Obama would not be elected a again. Early in Obama’s administration I had an unusual encounter while in prayer that I won’t talk about here, but it is written in an article called The Trump Paradigm.
After my dream of Obama’s second term, I remember reflecting back on how much I actually liked Mitt and Tagg Romney, yet in the middle of that reflection I had a mini vision of the two of them. Their countenance shifted and they both looked like those cartoon characters called angry birds walking out a door, and looking back on a scene behind me. I’m not kidding you. I was taken back, and wondered what that meant. Four years later Romney resurfaced, and I couldn’t get that vision out of my mind. Something got a hold of him. He never seemed the same to me, that I thought I had originally discerned. I remember though an assumption I had, and I’m glad I didn’t act on it. The encounter I had regarding him was powerful in prophetic detail. I quietly carried an assumption that whole year that he would be elected into office. The only reason I didn’t say a word is because God never confirmed it to me. I wrote about the entire tour, and that encounter but never had the unction of the Holy Spirit to speak it out loud that I thought he would be elected. That’s what we have got to be careful not to do, allow are assumptions to over ride the unction of the Holy Ghost. Its an easy line to cross sometimes. Too easy if you ask me. That is why we need to fervently pray for one another. Not be so quick to judge. Or run and call someone a false prophet that has never taught heresy, or neglected to display good fruit in their lives. There is plenty to learn in family discussions and we need to have more of them. Many who operate in profound giftings suffer in profound warfare. Many Christians are not taught the fundamentals in receiving Holy Spirit ministry.
Both these prophetic dreams took me out of my world to see national and international events to come. While we can have visions of international importance from where ever we stand. We are still seeing and interacting beyond where we are at. In the seer anointing. In that case the dream or vision clearly goes beyond are world, taking the significance of the dream and its interpretation outside of personal application.
Where our dreams are staged often give us a clue to their scope of relevance to the dreamer. Especially when it includes a known event or time line to come. The following is an example of an event that became an historical reality, but was a personalized warning for my husband and I regarding financial burdens that could be induced by taxation. In 2010 I had a vision of south American children pouring into my yard out of the woods. I saw a woman from the same place hold up her children and call to us to care for them. In the same dream I saw an elder Afganistanian man and woman sitting on our floor in our kitchen eating out of our refrigerator. These were all depicting national, and foreign policies, that could directly impact my husband and I as tax paying American citizens. You see how the world events came to us, symbolizing there effect in our lives. The dream both revealed what would become historical realities of American life, and its personal impact to the dreamer. Not to mention the plight of those depicted in the dream. Why do we have these dreams? God doesn’t give us prophetic dreams of international importance to flex our prophetic muscle and prowess. Nor does He do it to fast track our ministries into world recognition. In fact the most profoundly accurate prophets that I’ve encountered are not even well known. One that I know I don’t think has ever even stood behind a pulpit, nor have they traveled more than a day’s distance from their own home. Nevertheless, some people whose names you might know, know them simply as God’s intercessor. There are men and women, even boys and girls through out the nations of the earth, living in obedience to the father in the face of death everyday, having profound encounters, angelic visitations, as servants, as apostles, and prophets; or simply known as pastors. Working so very hard with very little, yet performing great demonstrations of the power of God, that we will never see in our abundance. Things they see everyday, because of their great need. These quietly walking in authority over realms and regions untold. The only alliance in the world that they are a part of is with God and the angels of heaven that serve his or her prayers.
For us to NOT pray and stand in the gap for all that God shows us, in the spirit, is to miss use our equipment for battle. As Abraham was a friend of God, so those that the Lord confides in regarding mysteries, happenings, and world events, are entrusted with the responsibility to pray. To stand in the gap, as Abraham stood in the gap and prayed, when God revealed the destruction soon to come to Sodom and Gomorrah. Why? Because God wills that no man perish, but that all will come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ! Simple! As every prophet in the Bible bore the burden of the Lord, so his sole duty was to beseech the Father on behalf of the people and warn them of impending judgments, and desired outpourings. Both the which are subject to a response from His people who are called by His name. Do we need prophets today? Do we need dreamers today? Joel the 2nd chapter 28. “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:”
This need is not done away with, as long as there are those who are deaf, dumb, and blind in the earth; who cannot see, hear, or comprehend the living God. We are His representatives in the earth. The scripture even saying: As He is so are we in the world!
Isaiah 42:16 I will lead the blind by a way they did not know; I will guide them on unfamiliar paths. I will turn darkness into light before them and rough places into level ground. These things I will do for them, and I will not forsake them.
… Ceasing not to give thanks for you, I make mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: that the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints..”
”I, the LORD, have called you for a righteous purpose, and I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and appoint you to be a covenant for the people and a light to the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring prisoners out of the dungeon and those sitting in darkness out from the prison house.
When we dream of presidents, dignitaries, disasters, and world events, our first and foremost responsibility is to pray. Write them down, record them, and let the Lord reveal what you’re to do with them from there.

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.
Tongues is described as the least of all the gifts. The little toe compared to the foot of all our giftings in the body. Yet, many Christians are still tripping over misunderstandings concerning this heavenly manifestation, that comes with the in filling of the Holy Spirit.
Deana teaches on the gift of unknown tongues, including its prophesied purpose written in the Old Testament, and quoted by Peter on the day of Pentecost. A prophetic word of warning to the Church Of Revolving Doors, wraps up a scriptural look as to why tongues are for now, and for all who seek the in-filling of the Holy Spirit.
State Of Exposure prophecy of 2017.
All most one year ago, posted here on my WordPress blog, was a prophetic word for 2017. The original post is linked below. I would say it certainly has come to pass. State of Exposure is now (in- retrospect) probably the best way to describe what our country has been going through for the last year. I would venture to say with more to come! Exposures and disclosures. The “me too” movement as of late, sweeping across the nation, contributing to a good measure of what was described as
A spirit of trembling of what would be exposed through the night, while the nations sleeps. Jan. 4, 2017
While the nation is still reeling with the kind of disclosures and exposures that have ended many lifelong careers, and probably a few relationships, so we are just scratching the surface with deeper revelations to come.
Nevertheless, Americans have been more concerned about their misconduct being called out in the workplace, than they are of the menace of North Korea. And the treasonist acts of public officials in our government. Still the word “a spirit of trembling” comes to mind as long as Kim Jong-un, terrorists, and Deep State exists, and by no means not for just Americans. Another word mentioned that was not what you would expect but still makes a profound statement, and that was the fainting Judge prophecy, that you will see in State of Exposure in regard to conviction. Now, at the time I had no idea who that would be, and I have no desire to be a prophet for show business events, but this “happening” is a word in itself, calling a nation out of its idolatry! After googling “fainting judge” it turns out the producer and Judge of the talent show “American Idol” had a life altering event take place after “fainting” in October of this year, prompting the famous judge of “American Idol” to quote: “Change his life style for the sake of his son.”
Is conviction going to prompt us to turn from an American life of raising idols, and rather change our lifestyles to raising our sons? I don’t think I need to go into great detail on how prophetic this Fainting Judge word is. Just read the prophecy. And remember the Spirit of Elijah is doing an end-time work.
The Spirit of Elijah is sent out in the latter days to turn the fathers heart towards their sons .. Mal 4:4-6
So anyway 2018 will be known as the year of aftermath, and consequence, and the notion of cause and effect. A reaping of what has been sowed in the way of sowing to the wind. The life altering events that have taken hold of many in this nation, for reasons beyond exposure but in relation to storms that exposure seems to whip up- just as real storms exist, we have aftermath to contend with in either circumstance. Real or man made. Deserved or undeserved. As 2017 was called the Year of Exposure, so 2018 is going to be known as a year of consequence. While more storms are coming, with their own post traumatic stress to navigate through. Those who trust God unwaveringly, will emerge upon a track of renewal.
This cause and effect is cycling through and manifesting into returns and renewals. For those who have their priorities right and are not the faint of heart.
Remembering in all thing that Jesus is our solid ground. There is no other rock to stand on.

Laying the axe to Fruitful Trees
What does God say about slander in the Body of Christ against Christian ministry that has gone before us?
Source: A New Church Era
Passing through Babylon.
By Deana Barnes.
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy race, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Inordinate affection is an over the top passion, about anything other than our love for the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. An inordinate affection causes us to act disorderly and leads to sin. The greek word associated with it is pathos, meaning mental- you find it in the word: pathological, or psychopathic. We can get mental about a lot of things in this world these days and loose the mind of Christ in it! In fact, with the help of mainstream media and its dangerous slant on truth, many are developing opinions and a world view, in these end times, that will feed into what is described in the bible as the great deception. Satan, the bible says, is like a roaring lion pacing back and forth, seeking for an opportunity to devour. He is looking for the hamstring knock out, that will take us down. For example:
There are Christians that have kept a level head so far, maintaining a balanced view on current social headlines, or issues, until it began to bleed into the NFL.
Suddenly, we have people that (have been thought to be rational and balanced, in their views) going over the top, with inordinate or pathos’ responses because now it has touched on something that they are truly passionate about! The enemy will find our boiling point that will throw us into the ring, letting the god of this world, and the prince of the power of the air, fuel anger to the point we become inflamed; rather than, allowing the Spirit of God to temper our passions.
Nothing, should warrant division among the family of God in these days of ethnic uprisings, prophesied by Christ. We are one holy race. That is it. In all things there is the mind of Christ to be had! If we cleave to our heritages forgetting that God said our heritage is of HIM, then that will breed contention, in times of tension, among ethnic uprising. I suspect that there will be those that have such strong ties, culturally, they will not embrace their heritage that is of the Father, and they will forsake it. Had they ever looked into their identity in Christ, they would have understood what a great inheritance we have in Him. Heirs they are, who believe in their heart that God rose Jesus from the dead, confessing with their mouth He is Lord! Romans 10:9-10
In a world such as ours we should know one thing more than anything else. That is Christ and Him crucified. Seeking discernment of spirits, to differentiate between what all should be known, and what the prince of the power of the air wants us to believe.
Little Children guard your hearts and minds, keep yourself from idols, as John would say. Remembering, we all shall need adjusting, and do even now, like Peter when Jesus said, “You don’t know what spirit ye are of.” For everyone will be tempted to activism when it gets hard, this will be difficult. In all things we should remember that we are Ambassadors of Jesus Christ. So, all we should do and say, is what HE would do and say, to those who dwell outside of HIS Kingdom.
Many, are well acquainted with Jesus but have rejected him, and HIS servants, time and time again; and would have the mind of Christ now, in these days of crisis in America, if they would have listened to Him a long time ago. Still, we compel all … to come. We the (true church) will have the answers. We are citizens of the Kingdom of God. Hopefully, there will be media out reach, and I know many are set up for this, who can be a relevant voice of reason. Rightly dividing the word of truth.
The Lord, spoke to me about a leavening that would be introduced to the whole lump, if we didn’t make sure to: “Guard your hearts and minds in the days and weeks to come.” I heard the Lord say, “You knew it would be just a matter of time?” I answered, “Yes Lord.” Knowing to warn all that love HIM, to know that our affections, our passions; who or what we love, will be used by the enemy to pull any one of us into an agenda, that is earth bound, not heaven sent. In these amazing times the Lord will use His anointed to do great and mighty exploits. Many in the Spirit poised to be a clear and present force with in these days of shakings to come. To be a steady voice in the wilderness, and a stabilizer in the midst of chaotic times. Nevertheless, new works are always at the risk of take over, when they are easiest to infiltrate. That is why we have a carnage of slaughtered unborn, and sexualy abused children, that are targeted in this ruthless world we live in. Satan knows new beginnings don’t have a firm identity to resist splitting its purpose, or aborting it altogether. It will begin with what we think is right and true, because a passion has flared up on the inside of us! Just like pro abortion activists! But the question has to be asked, where did it come from, how was it fueled? Will we end up with more dead works in the world? Another voice of compromise, a mixture in this world? Or, will what God has begun among his Church, His ekklesia, become the representation of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth? An Embassy representing Yeshuah, and His Kingdom ways. In this they will know us by OUR love.
Leavening is a fermentation that begins to spread in the dough, it lies dormant until all the right conditions come together and then it spreads very quickly.
If one were to change their mind about adding yeast, it can only be done if the fermentation is localized and then cut out, after its been introduced. Leavening is like sin. SIN means to fall short. A thing can seem right until it is debated, or another side is told. A man thinks to himself his way is right, but the end of that way is death. I pray that in every way, we as Christians seek the full counsel of God, in all things. Because perilous times are coming. Why should we take a rabid dog by the ears in an argument not our own, in a time when evil is all around us? We are in this world not of it, and careful prayer for supernatural wisdom is required to navigate through all things called a controversy, victoriously. In Mathew 24 Jesus said, there will be wars and rumors of war, nation will rise against nation .. the word in greek for nation is ETHOS’ from it the word ethnic is derived. Believe me brothers and sisters, you will want both feet in the Kingdom of God in these days of wars, and rumors of wars, nations rising up against nations! Not leaving one foot, stubbornly, stirring in those sin born controversies where there is no clear path to embrace. For sin lies in the heart of men. The heart is exceedingly wicked. Cleave to God and His son the Lord Jesus, He will give you a VOICE that will be heard, in these ethnic risings, and rumors of war! You are of one faith and baptism, you are of a Holy Priesthood one nation. Why do the heathen rage and the peoples imagine a vain thing? As we read on in Mathew chapter 24 the scripture says, “and this gospel shall be preached …” see that? (And) (while) (as) these things are going on – This gospel shall be preached!
We cannot be doing both! It is clearly one way or the other. Either you and I are part of the uprising, the wars, and rumors of wars, or we are preaching this gospel Of the Lord Jesus Christ! Remember you are in Christ, dead to the old man! The old man is a reveller! The message of the cross, and true repentance of sin is the answer to mankind’s ills.
Psalms 2:8 Ask me and I will make the Nations [Etho’-s] your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
Put on the New Self. If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For you are DEAD, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.
Mortify therefore your members which are on the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience: In the which you also walked some time, when you lived in them. But now you also put off all these; ANGER, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is RENEWED in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is NEITHER Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor un circumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
Put on therefore, AS THE ELECT of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do you. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also you are called in one body; and be you thankful. Let the WORD of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and ADMONISHING one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Wardrobe Of Readiness.
Does how we dress, sleep, and spend our time, have anything to do with our eternal destination? It’s all right here in my latest podcast.
Wardrobe Of Readiness.
My hope is that if you are a believer in the healing power of God, this article will encourage you and reinforce what you already know. That is, that Jesus settled the healing question by the work of the cross. If you debate that truth, don’t bother with me. I’m ruined, you can’t help me. There is nothing you can say or do to change my mind. We’ve seen it, heard it, and have handled it with our own two hands, the Word of Life. We have set our stakes in the promise land of healing. We have had our Jericho and our AI’s we’ve learned our lessons of faith, endurance, and trust. Our mandate has been go, drive out the inhabitants of the land, displace them, and take possession of that which belongs to the Child of God. For it is the children’s bread! The one who sits at the table of the Father. We take Luke 10:19 literally, “I have given you authority to tread upon scorpions and serpents and over all the power of the enemy, nothing by any means shall harm you.” And the last part of that scripture, that says rejoice not that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice rather, that your names our written in the Lambs book of Life. Our testimony to the Fire Wall of God!
Every true call of God begins with salvation- Passover. Enters into Pentecost- Fire. Then onto a journey of unbridled trust, and abandonment to God- Tabernacles.
Those who do not advance forward, through all of the above, become the former, who persecutes the latter. King Saul ended his journey plagued with stubborn disobedience. Unlike David who accomplished his journey with a correctable heart, in obedience to God. Saul, forgetting their common enemy relentlessly pursued David. At one time, David was as a son to Saul, one of his own household. They sat at the same table together. But Saul’s heart began to turn against David, the Lords anointed, until David’s life was in peril, and he had to go in hiding.
Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.”
1 Samuel 9-28 The Connection between Saul and David, Pentecost and Tabernacles.
As simple as I can put it, Saul was crowned king during Pentecost. Later, David, escaping Saul, did so in the tradition of the festival of booths. Hiding in the wilderness under an open heaven. The picture we have here is that the Pentecostal experience must keep moving forward as an unfolding movement, not a destination. It is not the end of the trail, to end all trails! Saul was sent to find his Father’s donkeys, during that time he crossed paths with Samuel and began to prophesy. The bible says this encounter began to change him! But Pentecost is a feast of first fruits, so Pentecostalism is only the beginning of the process. Tabernacles is an end of harvest celebration that is commemorated out doors as The Festival Of Booths. Reminding the Jews of the faithful provision of God in the wilderness. This process, this wilderness training, is needed for the saints of God to obtain the promised land of their inheritance. Entering into abundance while remembering who is the provider.
We see in this story in 1 Samuel beginning in chapter 9 that Saul became God’s anointed King, losing his crown to David because Saul supposed he could think for God and “fill in” for the priest, conducting his own sacrifice. In other words, he assumed an “I am all, be all attitude; David, immediately, there after, was anointed to replace Saul after this sin.
1Samuel 15:22-23 Has the Lord greater delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to HEED than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.”
It is an age old battle, and continuing saga illustrated in the story of David and Saul.
Allegorically, it’s reflected in many aspects of life where one authority has lost its crown and called to make room for another; from world dominions, to church sanctuaries, and beyond. More specifically where the Lord has departed from disobedience and has found a place for His Spirit to rest upon others, in their obedience. Where His favor has shifted, or His striving has lifted, from an unrepentant stiff necked soul, church, or nation. Of whom were given much in days gone by. It has a broad spectrum of application in its spiritual lessons from shepherds to kings.
For this narrative David’s character Is the one in Christ’s own image, even HIS CHURCH, as God’s anointed whom Christ is the head, yet who dwells (in these end times) as lambs among wolves, in a day of many towering steeples, under a Saulinian rule. Saul was chosen by God, anointed, he was head and shoulders above the rest in stature, a celebrated warrior King, full of destiny. But Saul disobeyed God.
This story played out in God’s own house when jealous Saul became embittered over the unlikely, rising star, David. Saul understood the favor David had with God, and man, because he once had it; sadly, he lost his privilege by disobeying the Lord and his commands, as if Saul’s judgements were superior to the Lord’s instructions. We see this same kind of attitude in what’s suppose to be Christ’s Church, when leadership attempts to handle the moves of God, and the manifestations of His Holy Spirit, according to their natural understanding. Often quenching the Spirit. On a much larger scale they do this according to their self organized counsels, posturing over manifestations of his presence, and outpourings of His Spirit, as if they were of their own making.
Supposing to preside over moves of God that are birthed from the unseen realm of the Spirit.
This Saul type wants David’s exploits counted as his own. He sees the Lord’s favor on him and knows not to trifle with David. Saul puts David in battle after battle to destroy him, but David wins because God is with him! While David is serving Saul, he is winning the favor of the people. Nothing Saul does against David works. His jealousy and anger invites an evil spirit into Saul, and now his work against David is empowered by the demonic. David finds it necessary to retreat from Saul’s growing opposition against him, as God’s anointed.
David, loving, gifted, beautiful David, slipped out of Saul’s grasp, and went hiding in the woods.
This story is not unlike those buffeted, persecuted, and martyred as John the Baptist, Elijah, and the saints of old; including reformers to this present age. Seeking refuge in the wilderness, in caves, in catacombs; those of whom the world was not worthy, fleeing lands, and property; going into hiding. Captured, jailed, like John the revelator. Martyred as John the Baptist, James, Peter, and Paul; later, reformists like William Tyndale, and Jan Hus who was burned at the stake. Non conformists who were ordered not to preach, imprisoned for obeying God rather than man. Such as John Bunyan of Pilgrim’s Progress, and George Fox who preached among the puritans in the colonies; among the Quakers who brought prison, and asylum reform, as well as education; who taught against oppression towards women, Native Americans, and slaves; who worked for the freedom of slaves.
These revolutionary, nonconformists, lovers of God; brought renewals, revivals, awakenings, and reformation, to the old and new world. In order to do so they went into Tabernacles.
Most importantly they brought freedom to the oppressed. But not with out a price. The old regime, the former moves of God- solidified into the monuments they do always seem to become, persecuting the prophets of (God ordained) change. These that do this cannot move on with the Spirit. Many even now, recognize manifestations of former glory, but slowly become strangers to the present glory of God who is a pillar of fire by night, and a cloud of glory by day, that was the Israelites day of Tabernacles! God himself leading them out as one massive river of people, ever moving the saints, by HIS Spirit onward and upward!
But this progression cannot be void of prophets, the more controversy we face in our life, the more abrupt the change, the more it is evident that we have NOT had that anointing operational in our midst. Seamless transitions to bigger and better tomorrow’s are made easier by the consistent work of a prophet’s anointing in the house. A house void of this anointing, set in the church, for a long period of time goes no where of any significance, and will begin to erupt with conflict and controversy when a true prophet comes to set among them.
It’s the difference between what is done when a house is under consistent maintenance or gross neglect. One is a smooth operation of transformation; however, the neglected house abruptly turns into a construction site.
Had the Body of Christ, simply been allowed to function freely in all its gifts and anointings the house would have been kept in impeccable care. One man, one platform, one microphone is not the body. Never was. Never will be. These Saulinian types often resist full body functionality, preaching against God’s prophet’s rather than for them. What ever the anointing is that has charge, under a Saulinian type, the higher anointings of greater service are consistently eliminated, until they are worked out the door. No one will ever achieve equal status, nor be mentored and released, for a similar work under the Saulinian type, unless full contribution and/or loyalty towards Saul’s achievements are rendered. Remember, Saul’s reign has no posterity. No one will take Saul’s place from his Saulinian line. When King Saul died, that enhanced operative to control, embitter, and batter, reserved itself for an end time seat, to reside over twice the sons of hell that he was. In religious Churchianity all over the world. Driving their Davids into Tabernacles, and reinforcing their Saul’s that hate them.
Saul and David is a whirl wind dynamic that began with the fall of man. No one is with out sin. However, some learn to live, happily, with the Spirit of Christ draining from them.
God in his mercy towards the sheep cycles in prophets, and then out again, at various stages of growth and maturity, in His attempt to shepherd his flock out from under the power and control of those whom increasingly find the Davidian company in the cross hairs of their own jealousy. While seeking to preserve and/or temper His prophets in patience, God releases them to seasons of seclusion in order to heal. While working for all to unify them with the rest of the body. We cannot blame true sheep for revolving doors, sheep are just looking for someone to lead and feed them, they are the first indicators of how barren the pasture may be, or scary it has become. In the same way we cannot blame prophets for retreating to their hiding place, under a hail of stone throwing. To the pharisees Jesus said, “You do always kill the prophets”.
The New Saulinian Establishment
This same Saulinian spirit, in this present generation, rides in on the anointing, while in the association of many prophets, and continues in office on a vapor, even while the lamp stand of the Lord is whisked away. This Saul is able to create an illusion of greatness and power, by form and font, by animation and mirage. By young admiring Davids lending enthusiasm, music, poetry, and song. While the warmth and glory of the Holy Spirit is subtly replaced by something “other” in these sanctuaries, so familiar to us all. It seems to have everything better, in this electronic age. Lighting, and digital media, displayed on monitors around the sanctuary. Electronic wind, waves, and fire subtly replacing God’s glory- His waves, His wind, His fire.
In these places a political current emerges where natural charisma, the smooth tongued, and flamboyance replaces appointments; persecuting genuine anointings, polluting the house where God’s power was once displayed, with a POLITICAL spirit. This begins with the same way it started with Saul.
Where David is a threat, yet a required asset to keep the lights on, and the passion burning. Devoted admiring young Davids love Jonathon and Saul. But, promotion and promises graduate to what serves Prophetic Saul best on the outward appearance, of his own reputation, rather than on the quality of the inward man, and God’s plan. It raises havoc against instruments of renewal, restoration, and deliverance. Releasing cycled intervals of expectation and hype; that rises and falls. Revolving doors that never stop sucking sheep, emotionally fleecing them, while they are rotating out, still looking for that green pasture, where they can belong, and offer their fleece for God’s glory. They are left exhausted of what is erroneously thought to be Christian service. Many institutions like this, and their leaderships are prisoners to what once was, serving the monument of yesterday’s former glories. Forgetting the God that breathed power into them.
They are worse than dead churches, most formal. In these pulsating, clamoring walls, where there are few lasting relationships nurtured beyond the foyers and parking lot … God is gone and no one notices.
While the remnant, seemingly, does not exist and this is taught to be so. That is too exclusionary! But, they do not perceive the hour and the season they are in. The Davidian remnant does as David in the territory of the Giants. Dominions are being displaced in the outskirts of the land belonging to heathen entities, David is taking them one village at a time from a stronghold resting in obscurity, because God is with HIS anointed.
1 Samuel 21 – Ahimelech the priest- David, fleeing from Saul, comes to the city of Nob.
Now David came to Nob, to Ahimelech the priest. And Ahimelech was afraid when he met David, and said to him, “Why are you alone, and no one is with you?” So David said to Ahimelech the priest, “The king has ordered me on some business, and said to me, ‘Do not let anyone know anything about the business on which I send you, or what I have commanded you.’ And I have directed my young men to such and such a place.’
Commentary described this as a lie, but was it? Who’s King David referring to? It seems to be Saul, but in this allegoric commentary it is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Calling the Church into hiding on an assignment. God is displacing the enemy, and no one knows. Not Saul, nor those great men of war near by. What plans and pursuits given to David and His band of brothers in hiding, belong to them to steward. David isn’t giving that away. For Saul is looking for David.
Promotion Comes From The Lord
As Pharaoh, Herod, and Saul, sought to slay God’s anointed in their youth, so this same spirit desires to destroy new beginnings and fresh anointings, in their infancy. What makes Saul’s form of betrayal in the Church more poignant is that Saul’s fellowship with David was once sweet, David loved Saul and Jonathan. At one time Saul called David his son, Jonathan’s soul entwined with David’s in brotherly love. Many destinies of those anointed have suffered the piercings of Saul’s jealous javelin, by believing this elite’s table is where their promotion comes, or where God is going to fulfill his plan with them. Enduring years of abuse, and promised rewards; as Saul promised David his daughter, only to give her to another- so this same kind of operative never delivers on promised platforms and promotions; but rather, when the time to deliver has come, jealous barbs like flying spears sail. For this Saul spirit recognizes the anointing that displaces him. David was empowered by God, His favor rested upon him.
He That Overcomes Will I Make
The furnace of much affliction has its chosen, for iron there is silver, for brass there is gold. Even David once sat at Saul’s table and served him. The Saul spirit does greater damage in the kingdom of God than Pharaoh’s magicians and Herod’s henchmen, for he understands prophetic accuracy. He knows exactly who has inherited his place, and he has them marked. Unlike Pharaoh and Herod who only knew by omens. Saul, recognized David’s anointing, for he once walked with God. It is far better to part company with Saul, and join David in obscurity, un wanted and unrecognized, than sitting as subjects of politically fueled religious associations. Where their own relevance is carefully guarded; seeing to it that new works, and the anointings that bring them in, never arise. That they never get past their infancy. Thank God for the reformers that threw off religious restraints, who brought forth the capacity for God to do a new thing in the earth. Thank God that He warns his anointed, for those Davids, who go hiding in the woods.
Among The Prophets
This anti type is a spirit that operates characteristically, as a Saulinian influence over many churches today. Saul who ran with a company of prophets, and even prophesied with them, before taking his position as King, started out right and went wrong. David was a prophetic psalmist set apart, as a shepherd, that God replaced Saul with. So it is not astounding that these two “types” are found in the camp of the prophetic, among the most prolific and apostolic moves among the nations, even now.
Those gifted by association and those gifted by grace. Even while Saul persude David to kill him, he couldn’t prophesy David’s demise. 1 Samual 19:24
when Saul happened upon the vicinity of Samual, Saul by association began to prophesy. Saul was asked of, “Is he a prophet as well?” Saul was moved by other prophet’s prophetic gift to prophesy, but that source was not with him, alone. As it is now many people have prophetic encounters, when in the company of strong prophetic anointing. That is why the camp of the prophetic is like no other camp, no other anointing can slip so easily into occult darkness than those who once walked in the presence of strong prophetic influences, as Saul had with his company of prophets, and his personal advisor Samuel. And then suddenly find themselves in the dark, when the Samuels and Davids of this world who are generators of that gift are gone. How can a young man searching the hillsides for his father’s donkeys, suddenly find himself as an anointed king graced with the spirit of prophecy, and favor- how can he not finish with great gratitude, and humility, for being chosen? Saul wanted a perpetual crown, perpetual power, and he could have had it. But Saul disregarded God’s anointed. The priest he assumed position of, and the king called to replace him.
Laying it down. Giving it up. Letting it die.
His reliance upon the power of his office, rather than the one who gave him that power displaced Saul’s crown, and transferred it to another.
Yes he was once the Lord’s anointed but no longer was he God’s chosen point man to get the job done for his people. Ministries, churches, and denominations, can thrive forever with out the spirit of Christ in them. The organization can run like a well oiled machine but what kind of oil is it? Synthetic or the crushed fruit from the pure vine? Processed and purified, this is the anointing that drips from the brow of those who seek Christ, rather than reputation. This the result of being set apart. This is David hiding in the Woods.
Draped In Controversy
Many have recognized the struggle between the anointed, who stands appointed and approved, and the anti anointed, un appointed, and unapproved. The Davidian anointing waits upon the Lord for promotion, and continues to pray for resolve … That God will handle the turmoil of the deposed, with His own right hand of RIGHTEOUSNESS while sparing His man or woman, that HE approved, in the controversy; as He did David. The bible tells us that offenses will come, but woe to him by whom they come. David and Saul were men among their own!
Still the principle is in play with a multi- faceted application. Who will wait upon the Lord, who will trust in Him, who will advance His kingdom? Who lives as His anointed, called, and chosen? The Church triumphant will emerge from obscurity and take the reigns of spiritual conquests in these end times. Saul, on the other hand, realizes His great error in a rude awakening after seeking a witch. But not soon enough.
You see, the most devastating error lies among those who have seen the power of God and have fallen away from it.
The evidence of His love, HIS hand in the supernatural. When the Spirit of God departs from such a one as he did Saul, who himself prophesied, and even couldn’t help from prophesying … Yet, in all of that Saul suffered in a famine of the WORD! God quit talking to him! Jonathan loved David, but continued his loyalty to Saul, his Father, as many offspring of Charismata movements do the same. They cannot depart from the amazing first house, the one becoming the stronghold of Saul.
This is much like those who beget sheep in a form that welcomes David’s worship- is enamored with him, but stays with the model that has all the bells and whistles, all the lights and glammer.
Saul’s legacy falls with him, as his posterity, as well. Nothing from his rule remains, that can stand, and continue, with David. The two shall not mingle. Jonathan’s dream to rule with David flys away, as he lies dead gathered with Saul. Far better it would have been for him to be with David; in the shadows of the rock, in the heat of the desert, rather than in Saul’s assembly; if only Jonathan, himself, went in hiding. He would have had to betray his heritage, but his heritage fell into error, and Jonathan would cling to both David and Saul. This is the fly that spoils a barrel of ointment. For this reason it would have been better for Jonathan to defect, and go into exile, leaving behind the polished world of Saul’s estate. To be with God’s anointed, the lowly shepherd King. With David hiding in the woods.
For this narrative, this allegory, the Saulinian rule is still at large among the religious elite today. Even among our prophetic circles, word oriented camps, worship and healing movements, born of the last century. These beautiful moves of God provided the Body of Christ with so much. Solidified into monuments of brick and mortar. A stone cold rigamortis, persecuting their Davids, and sealing the fate of their Jonathan’s.
Systemic Babylon, Saul’s Harlotry, And Anti-Christ
These systems blow around the globe like weather patterns shifting atmospheres in and out. David, God’s anointed, suddenly, un expectantly, encounters Saul. Saul is casing David’s movements from a far, his messengers feed Saul with updates he seeks to snare David with. He says to himself, “If I can only corner David in a city with gates and bars!” How much the institutional CHURCH desires to detain the Davidian Anointing! But, David retreats into the woods, the clefts of the mountains, the wilderness, and plains, where the warfare is on Heaven’s terms, he knows his hiding place is in God. There is no boundary of possibilities there, for hiding, for resting, for drinking from the cool springs in the garden of En Gedi; no wonder a water fall is named after him there. A place for God’s anointed far from the royal table from where he once fellowshipped with Saul, with in his walls. Apart, David lies low for planning, for watching through the trees, he studies the open landscape where he can see from where Saul’s men come, while he waits on God. DAVID is trusting the Father, among his band of brothers with him. David is hiding in the WOODS.
The Appointed Has Become The Imposter
The roll-out from Saul’s influence over to David’s full scope of authority breeds political persecution from the Saulinian regime that presents itself in the atmosphere of many Churches, today, and denominations in these end-times. Saul is warring against David. David’s headquarters are rustic, hidden; a hollowed ground by the tears of a psalmist who pulls on heaven above as his soul longs for God. The kingdom is in David’s hands, as is Saul’s life. Saul stands in a place that has been taken from him, in spirit; still, the Saulinian rule seems dressed, robed, crowned, and revered, while the dew of the morning wets the young King’s garments sleeping in the wilderness. Nevertheless, favor and the anointing rests on David. Of David’s own people, and of this world’s god, are the enemies of the Davidian reign.
Jesus said, If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. But, that doesn’t take away from Christ whom sits with heaven as HIS throne, no more than it takes away from the Lords feet, that rests upon its footstool, which is the earth.
The king “IS king” from crown to toe. Of him that is not recognized, of him that is persecuted in the earth, of him who has been rejected as David; the powerful warrior King, the one truly advancing the kingdom, will be revealed in the day of HIS appearing when He comes. Christ the head is crowned sitting upon His throne, His feet subduing the earth under the canopy of obscurity, one life, one village, one soul at a time. The Kingdom is not something that can be observed, let us go over here, let us find it over there. But like leaven in bread it rises and overcomes un observed. They that walk in the Spirit, that do not the works of the flesh advance the kingdom, every where the foot treads …
The Parable of the Leaven Mathew 13:33 Another parable He spoke to them: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.
Luke 17: 20-24 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst. And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it. And they shall say to you, See he’s here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them. For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
As David Did So Do We.
We sing, we dance, we wait on God to subdue our enemies before us. Saul will be dealt with by God, David will not touch Saul’s crown. He doesn’t have to. Saul is stirred by envy and jealousy, he is fixated on destroying David; yet, David’s worship once settled Saul’s soul. But, David cannot yield to Saul’s summons, his invitations to come and perform his music; to sit at Sauls table where Saul is the head-
Not because David cannot honor Saul, but because Saul cannot control his jealousy … David must remain in the woods, in the wilderness, in the caves, and bathe in the streams of the En Gedi.
God’s once appointed and anointed who set up his own altar, on his own terms now eyes his predecessor; while heaven is brass to Saul, and he begins to wonder after other voices for lack of hearing any more- Saul standing in the holy place, an ordained position in the office once graced with the decor of God’s favor from dominions to the altar of God- is now being defiled by a stranger, standing in the Holy place of seeking.
Out of desperation to hear from Heaven in a draught of HIS WORD … those standing in the same place as Saul, have turned to a spirit of divination, while all along persecuting the house of DAVID. Hoping David will seek the comforts of a city of gates and bars, not unlike our religious institutions rigid in form and formality, where the Saulinian rule can corner and counter God’s anointed vessel. A place that boasts of comforts, is designed to kill what sets apart David from Saul. But, David listens to the voice of the Father. David goes hiding in the woods.
The bricks, stones, and mortar of Saul’s empire in all its applications stands out the most in our denominations where the temple of the Holy Spirit is replaced by an institution, where His Spirit is no longer sought out, where His voice has been replaced by another. Where the very walls mock and persecute the lingering faithful … In every place the Holy Spirit is second to men and women who put their agenda above the Father’s. Still, David waits and accomplishes the Lord’s directives under the shadows from where he hides, dodging Saul’s campaigns while he battles the enemies of The Cross. The House of David moves like a river flowing seamlessly, as one, all the gifts and offices are in use. Each man and woman in their positions and call. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.
Extending the reach of the Father’s dominion, with a remnant of the broken; David, anointed to be king with the disparaged, and disenfranchised, waits upon the Lord, in obscurity, much like many of the saints down through the ages, of whom the world is not worthy; powerfully prophetic; amazingly apostolic; manifesting Christ in the earth.
A Mighty warrior, pursued relentlessly by a standing King from whom the Lord has departed, Ichabod! The remnant in these end-times is as David, and his rogue band of brothers. Dwelling as citizens of a kingdom hiding in plain sight. Ever increasing in glory and power. While Saul driven to madness searching a closed heaven, in a famine of the WORD, seeks out a dead prophet through the witch of Endor. Sealing his demise. He that despises God’s anointed seeking to confine him in a fortress of gates, and walls made of men; only desires to eliminate what he sees as a competitor. It was Saul’s delight to hear that David was in the city, he knew he could corner him there. Not unlike the walls of our own strong opinion where those called by God are held in captivity. Ruthless, religious cities, godless Christian institutions, heartless slave powered corporations, fleecing the people to keep their mammoth fortresses lit up, while making their disciples twice the sons of Hell, that they are. These raised up bearing Christ name who came out from us, but are not of us, are rather aligning themselves as associates of the Great Whore Babylon. The cry of the Father is, “Come out from her my people; why should you suffer in her judgments?”
Do you think there are not houses for God, even now, being conditioned to follow the voice of the stranger?
Still, the first to embrace David was Saul’s own offspring. This is that great decision, that exodus, the fleeing out of Babylon, before her fate is sealed. Finding true fellowship among the Davidian Company. Where the Lion of Judah prepares for his open reign beginning with the remnant. As King David was recognized first, of JUDAH, so the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, is revealed for all eyes to see Him, whom they have pierced; along with those who drank of HIS cup in the fellowship of HIS sufferings. Unfolding that which was concealed in the Old Testament, and revealed in the new. Israel will see HIM, and mourn for HIM.
Brought from obscurity, delivered from the grave, raised the third day … In His likeness God’s anointed knows rejection, knows well the clefts of the mountain. The hiding places, the caves, the woods, the deserts, and streams each place named; the Father’s favor and demonstration of power rests upon those who obey, for obedience is better than sacrifice, and seeking to be known by Yeshua, the God who Saves, is far better than to be known by reputation, title, or position.
Psalms 2:7-9 The Earth is the Lord’s
Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in!
Many have obtained greatness under the banner of the cross, but the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ resting in the clefts of the Rock, is triumphant and true, shrouded in the rolling mist of His glory, that pours down the ravines of the mountain of the Lord. From this place goes forth the dictates of HIS throne, the one whom the world hides from, is the one whom the remnant nation sits with, in high places. This place the Saulinian rule cannot obtain, cannot breach, cannot control, but has become disqualified in sharing in the bounty of David, his spoil. The kingdom of God so near, so wonderful, so great, visibly impacting the earth from unseen realms, peers through the eyes of the obedient saints, who reflect God’s glory.
Soon and very soon we shall see the King, and His anointed subduing dominions, the house of David, will no longer be hidden in the woods.
Nevertheless, as an ode to all former rivals that once cleaved to Christ, and came from those among His, the establishments, the denominations, and alliances; the beauty and honor of David’s lament mourns former friendship, companionship, and fellowship, that once was found in the House of Saul, in the early days of Charismata.
David’s Lament for Saul and Jonathan 2 Samual 19:17-27
David took up this lament concerning Saul and his son Jonathan, and he ordered that the people of Judah be taught this lament of the bow (it is written in the Book of Jashar):
“A gazelle[a] lies slain on your heights, Israel.
How the mighty have fallen!
“Tell it not in Gath,
proclaim it not in the streets of Ashkelon,
lest the daughters of the Philistines be glad,
lest the daughters of the uncircumcised rejoice.
“Mountains of Gilboa,
may you have neither dew nor rain,
may no showers fall on your terraced fields.
For there the shield of the mighty was despised,
the shield of Saul—no longer rubbed with oil.
“From the blood of the slain,
from the flesh of the mighty,
the bow of Jonathan did not turn back,
the sword of Saul did not return unsatisfied.
Saul and Jonathan—
in life they were loved and admired,
and in death they were not parted.
They were swifter than eagles,
they were stronger than lions.
“Daughters of Israel,
weep for Saul,
who clothed you in scarlet and finery,
who adorned your garments with ornaments of gold.
“How the mighty have fallen in battle!
Jonathan lies slain on your heights.
I grieve for you, Jonathan my brother;
you were very dear to me.
Your love for me was wonderful,
more wonderful than that of women.
“How the mighty have fallen!
The weapons of war have perished!”
Have you ever had a wild dream that seemed to go on and on like an epic movie, and when you woke up you thought about it for days wondering WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?? Maybe some of these dreams are the imagination of an avid movie goer, over stimulated by an action packed night of coke, popcorn, and adventure heroes. But WHAT IF you’re not an avid movie goer, but a prophetic prayer warrior? Joel 2 says GOD IS GOING TO POUR OUT HIS SPIRIT in the last days! Young and old, men and women, boys and girls, are going to PROPHESY, have DREAMS, and VISIONS, before the great and terrible days of the LORD! Recently I was going through my journal of dreams submitted for interpretation, and I ran across this one that I strongly felt was not only speaking to the dreamer but paralleling America, as well. The theme has to do with home invasions. What is remarkable is that one year later I myself would have an epic encounter in a vision of a home invasion, that revealed America would see a mass exodus of illegal aliens. This was in February of 2016, (It is published here at NWP) While at the same time doing the right thing by children. Called The Right Thing To Do.
Let me ask you something, if you had a huge pine tree cut down in your front yard while you were sleeping, do you think that would wake you up? AMERICA has been invaded and taken over by something other than herself, and we are just waking up to that reality. We are at a war at our very thresholds and only God can give us victory. Whether you get this prophetic process or not, whether you comprehend this prophetic dream or not, there is one thing you should take from it. We are in an era of great spiritual warfare that could very well manifest itself into an epic disaster for American lives, if we don’t get up and run to the battle, before that battle comes to our streets, our doors, and into our homes. SPIRIT WARS is an epic MOVIE that is not only COMING SOON, it is already here!
Dream interpretation should be subjected to a council of prophets where further instruction and ministry can be pursued. In that setting dreams, visions, prophecy and the gift of interpretation can be properly examined, reinforced, or discarded as error. Let the prophets speak and the others stand and judge. With God’s best for you at heart. In Christ. – dee barnes
Dreamer writes: Thank you so much for taking the time to pray and respond to my request! This has been very encouraging, and I will spend time reviewing this and praying into it and responding to the wisdom here! Yes, our family has undergone tremendous attack, but each day, I am drawing closer and closer to Jesus and being more encouraged to hang on and press through. Thank you so much again! My words just can’t express how much this has meant to me.
Intruder dream Feb 3, 2015
I dreamed I was at my parents’ old house in our old city, and I was having an adult slumber party with some of my girlfriends. We were set up in the living room with mattresses on the floor. It was dark out, but we had the lights on inside. An intruder burst in the front door – it was a home invasion – and he was armed and shot me in the right thigh. I went down, and he stayed a little bit, and then he left. As soon as he left, I was able to close the door and lock it. I looked out the window, and a big jack pine tree had been cut down in the front yard at some point, and there were some branches down in the yard still, and some chunk slices of the trunk by the front walk (like how you cut a tree for firewood). I went back to the mattress. I was looking at the mattress at where I had bled from being shot in the leg, and there was quite a bit of blood on it. I looked at my thigh, and I saw the wound, and I saw that the bullet was in there. It looked white.
The next part of the dream was that I was in the hospital in the waiting room, and my parents were there, and I distinctly remember my son, ——–, there, and I wanted him to take pictures, because I wanted to show them that you could see the bullet just inside the wound. I was trying to get my dad’s attention, too. I was sitting in the chair, and I spread opened the wound, which had started to stick shut, and there was a pod or pouch thing – a seed pod – that came out of the wound, and I kind of pulled it a bit, and it was growing as I was pulling it out. The seed pod became a big white daisy-like flower that I turned around – and I was making sure that my son was documenting it – and I turned the flower around, and the centre of the flower was where the seed pod was, it was getting bigger and bigger by the second. It was actually holding a baby. By this time, it was the size of my hand, and I was holding it in my hand, and I was holding it up for him to look at – “is it breathing? Do you think it’s breathing”? I put it close to his face to see, and he said, “No.” And I said, “It’s because it’s still attached to me placentally.”
Then they finally got me into an examination room, and they were trying to help me up on the bed, but by this time, the baby had grown so much that it was the size of a real baby. From the time it had first just popped out of my thigh wound to 5-10 minutes later, it was a full-sized baby. I got up on the bed, and I was just holding it at my leg, and yet, it was acknowledged that I had been shot, and it didn’t make sense how this baby was a part of it. Then somebody in the next bed asked, “Didn’t you see the intruder outside”? And I said, “No. If there was any inkling that there was an intruder at the window, I would have seen him.” Then, there was a window on the bottom right side of my bed near the floor, and there was someone there that grabbed my hand, and I shook it off. Then I noticed my old friend, ——was in another bed and she had just had another baby. In the dream, I was very firm that I had wanted my son to be the one to document this.
The response to this dream includes adjustments to broaden its application to include what I believe is prophetic insight for what America is facing now.
Not that your battles are uncommon because of neglect. For they are common reflecting our world we live in; what is uncommon, and heroic, is your response and faith because you are displaying that we are more than conquerors through CHRIST Jesus. These are extraordinary battles because of the threat our families are to the kingdom of darkness. Above all else we can be sure of this- Nothing can separate us from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus.
Future Blessings for Zion
“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgement you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD.
A dream that parallels the CHURCH in many ways in the light of these end times.
Beloved, this is a dream revealing spiritual warfare that transcends generationally, manifesting itself in your life time, simply, because the days are evil. It is a work of darkness that has been transpiring for a significant amount of time outside of the realm of discovery until it has come upon you, like a home invasion. Literally, like a thief in the night. What the enemy did to the tree outside is what the thief attempted to accomplish against your family on the inside. I see it as the same assignment he wishes to accomplish against the Church in America. This is warfare, a hit against your family line. Trees represent legacy and heritage.
The sleeping party (state of the Church) (celebratory yet sleeping) is the recently present state that this invader has intruded upon, where you have suddenly found yourself in a fight for your life, a massive amount of blood is lost, the girl friends represent many fellowships or Churches that are the sleeping PARTY type. The window provided spiritual watchfulness but no watchman was watching. In retrospect you discover (through prophetic sight-fullness) the degree of vulnerability your family has been suffering, this answers the question “No one heard a Jack Pine being fallen in the front yard, no one saw anything through the window?” We need to exchange our sleeping parties for a war party, whose watchman stand through the night, WATCHING.
Nevertheless, this home intrusion is behind you now. Getting shot in the thigh is a wound you were astonished at. You have suffered astonishment over much that has happened. It has caused you to require a season of rest and recovery, but you are witnessing a supernatural occurrence right before your eyes. What Satan has tried to hobble your strength with, to destroy you with (the white bullet). Though MEANT FOR HARM, it will only work for your good, as you continue in your faith in Christ. You are also standing in a forunner’s anointing in your personal resolve to overcome. This will show the way for the bulk of those around you (Body of Christ) who will experience a similar rude awakening on a much larger scale, corporately.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
Out of it comes supernatural, and miraculous New Life. The gestation of it will not be hidden from you, but present it self in the seen realm. Those with you will benefit from watching your rebound, as well. As you continue to nurture your own personal recovery you will grow in amazement, watching what God is performing before your very eyes. The flowering stage is the end game regarding this hit against the promises of God, the pod of seeds are presenting multiplied potential, nurturing new works, information, promise, and a cluster of giftings that will match and exceed the level of satanic Intel it takes to perform this kind of trespass against families of God. This is the Father accomplishing a spiritual work in you, that will benefit many.
Still, a battle presents itself, a spiritually discerned remnant of the battle remains. (Hand to hand combat at the window while in recovery.) Your next dream expounds upon the nature of that battle and updates you on how it is looking now, or what is needed to completely destroy this demonic power.
Every battle won is completed by captured armaments.This is understanding the technology of our enemies warfare. Be not ignorant of the devil’s devices. God is bringing light and strategy against the works of darkness.
Second dream: Windows and another home invasion attempt, battle at the window until the arm is all that remains, yet it too is overcome. Husband stops to seek knowledge during a lul in the fight scene when in the middle of the fight. Another Ameriican parallel? Another battle at the threshold of French doors where the dreamer makes the attempt to change or straighten a child’s crooked mouth before coming through the doors, but it’s not working.
French window door intrusions are battles coming out of the unseen realm and being discerned as the spiritual attack that they are, through prophetic sight-fullness, before they actually occur, through an open door. Warning for a face off.
This dream is one that is in a sleeping room, where a bed is. The difference in sleeping in your own bed rather then the living room (as before) is that this is a place you are suppose to be sleeping. This is resting in Christ, able to be alerted and readily available in that alertness. Unlike the first dream which was an eagle eye view of living in a state of slumber (mattress in the living room) a perfect picture of the present Church in many ways. A multi dimensional view of what was, is, and the victory that is to come (as you continue in Christ) as the Church, herself, awakens into watchfulness and prayer. French windows are often windows that open like doors. Because this beast is finding its way through a windowed door, this window type displays a port of entry rather than a break in, this demon has found a door to enter in. It is being resisted, and identified, and you are being prophetically shown where you are at in this warfare. Again, the Church needs this kind of discernment, America needs it, as well. For even France itself is battling a home invasion, seeking to destroy cultural peace.
The king pin (muscle head) that presented itself through the windowed door is wrestled out, but there is more to resist, and understanding to gain. The room is woody and rustic because you are fighting a battle with eternal consequences in a temporary world that is perishing. Still, the most difficult part of the battle is in recess. Don’t let up, this intruder is nearly defeated in his assignment. Your spiritual work in warfare has wrought much victory, your husband seeking knowledge is a vital part. ( Or, knowledge seeking on your part.) Between the two types of warfare- prayer and the acquisition of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, this devil that seeks to kill, steal, and destroy, will be defeated. You will overcome by the BLOOD of the LAMB and by the WORD of your TESTIMONY.
Had this beast’s leg remained it would have meant he was rendered disabled.
You would have approached it and simply threw him the rest of the way out. Not so with the arm. The arm and hand is still able to seize you if an approach is not well thought out. But, because his arm remains it indicates the need for skill and strategy to rid its presence permanently. These things come not out but by fasting and prayer. Fasting and prayer takes us beyond natural understanding into super natural KNOWINGS and war room strategy. This here is that, through your supplications, prayers, and intercessions God answers us by revelation, knowledge, and understanding, often times through dreams and visions.
A Common Thread
The dreamer sees family passing through the French doors, back and forth where a battle once ensued. At one point a child’s mouth was crooked and she tried to force her mouth straight to no avail. Once again families will freely come and go, but attitudes will still need to be changed.
The third dream is revealing realtime prophetic encounters where familial interaction is passing back and fourth through the windowed doors. You are displaying powerful prophetic sight-fulness in these dreams. They have the potential to solve dilemmas. Here we see a cosmetic suggestion to make the issue better, but understanding the cause of why the child’s mouth is askew is overlooked, again the need to seek knowledge regarding the root of the issue. The Lord desires to perfect you in your spiritual gifting by adding to your prophetic gift words of wisdom, and a greater measure of spiritual understanding, again this may come through your husband as you co- labor, with him in Christ. Your approach to a problem, together, may bring a balanced resolve. As you pray and as he is in the word. Again, America needs to discern the deep issues coming in and out of her open doors, guarding transactions with a spirit of wisdom, and discernment which falls under that category, because what has been coming through America and Europe has not voiced themselves as in allegiance, or alignment, to cultural norms and standards. But rather, has begun to change them.
Indeed God speaks once, Or twice, yet no one notices it. In a dream, a vision of the night, when sound sleep falls on men, While they slumber in their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction …
With this cluster of giftings together spiritual maintenance will ensure joy and peace for the generation to come, rather than fending off battles no one sees coming until it is nearly to late. Not that your battles are uncommon all because of neglect, for they are common reflecting our world we live in, what is uncommon is your response and faith to rise up because we are more than conquerors through CHRIST Jesus. They are extraordinary battles because of the threat your family (and the Chrisitan family of God) is to the kingdom of darkness, therefore you are wanted dead or alive. Fight the good fight, and having done all continue to stand, HIS yoke is easy HIS burden is light. His rest is supernaturally refreshing, while our eyes are wide open. I want to say this to Christian America, as well, for her importance to the family of man in the days to come.
The last dream you will be encouraging renewal and restoration from loss endured by your heritage where battles have warn them down. So, this is you believing God for the security of your inheritance, posterity, and family legacy. With celebrated joy.
Zion’s Glory and New Name, Isaiah 62
For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep quiet,
Until her righteousness goes forth like brightness,
And her salvation like a torch that is burning.
The nations will see your righteousness,
And all kings your glory;
And you will be called by a new name
Which the mouth of the LORD will designate.
You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD,
And a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
It will no longer be said to you, “Forsaken,”
Nor to your land will it any longer be said, “Desolate”;
But you will be called, “My delight is in her,”
And your land, “Married”;
For the LORD delights in you,
And to Him your land will be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin,
So your sons will marry you;
And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
So your God will rejoice over you.
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen;
All day and all night they will never keep silent.
You who remind the LORD, take no rest for yourselves;
And give Him no rest until He establishes
And makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
The LORD has sworn by His right hand and by His strong arm,
“I will never again give your grain as food for your enemies;
Nor will foreigners drink your new wine for which you have labored.”
But those who garner it will eat it and praise the LORD;
And those who gather it will drink it in the courts of My sanctuary.
Go through, go through the gates,
Clear the way for the people;
Build up, build up the highway,
Remove the stones, lift up a standard over the peoples.
Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth,
Say to the daughter of Zion, “Lo, your salvation comes;
Behold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.”
And they will call them, “The holy people,
The redeemed of the LORD”;
And you will be called, “Sought out, a city not forsaken.”

To Co-Labor With NeWine Pouring
NeWine Pouring- Dream Journal is a blog from the prophetic ministry of deana barnes.
Offenses come. They come with out any effort upon the heart of the easily offended. More willing to bear a grudge than respond with love, lovelessness abounds. Yet, offences bead off more easily from the heart who is perfected in love, because the one bearing the fruit of love endures all things. Those that love do not easily give up on LOVE. The scripture says in the last days the love of many will be like a blown out candle of wax, cold and hardened, rather than warm and pliable. The heart will “wax cold” the passage says.
This will happen because of the spirit of lawlessness in the earth increasing in the end times. People will make up their own laws right or wrong. Their laws will serve them, and them alone. They will trespass God’s law to serve their own agenda at the expense of everyone around them. These are those by whom offenses come. They are a cold wind- blowing out what’s left of love in their lives.
Sadly, they may be meeting out the measure of lovelessness given to them, but all too often, even the loved and favored forfeit love for gain, because selfish ambitions rule their hearts over natural affection.
For love they respond with indifference, graduating to intolerance, until there is no real or natural affection left in them. Only the next cold and cruel stage of disdain, that begins to fill their hearts with hatefulness that changes them. Their mouths begin to be filled with bitter barbs to hurt and wound, rather than to give grace, and comfort. Unfortunately, these hurtful actions afflict those that God has assigned to be in their lives, for friendship, for fellowship, for love and support; yet, hatred has filled the ill will of that one choosing to nourish bitter roots, rather than eradicating them from their being, out of obedience to the Father. God tells us to always be on the look out for opportunities that will bring reconciliation. For we, as Christians, are to be ambassadors of the Gospel of Reconciliation. Will we endure the northern winds when they blow upon our lives?
We shall, when close to the warming heart we rest, the nearer to God we be.
The Journey Back To Love
Approaching God with honest submissions of our struggle in forgivness, in grudges and offenses, and misunderstandings- opens up a world of mercy towards us because the Father says, “If you are faithful to confess your sins before me, I am faithful and just to forgive them, and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.”
We do this in supplications and prayers (not forgetting to give thanks to God) we make our desire to overcome lovelessness as a request to be made known to God, who will keep our hearts and minds in HIS perfect peace, when we do so. See Philippians chapter 4.
To rid ourselves of bitter roots requires conscious intent. Often addressing issues we don’t even want to look at. We may be in a state of numbness, knowing we don’t even care! Knowing we are that far gone! Going to the Father and telling Him HOW YOU FEEL in all honesty will begin a rehaul in your life, to love again.
It’s about your persuit to being whole, knowing you need it even though you may not be “feeling it.”
In King David’s story we see how he waited on God time and time again for reconciliation rather than justice. David who suffered betrayal by those he loved, over and over again. Who in the end did receive justice, because David’s enemies refused reconciliation. He poured HIS heart out for God to hear his lament over grievous disappointments, wounds that he sustained by those closest to him. One of those occurrences as written below:
“Had this been my foe, I would have endured the betrayal, but it was a friend, a brother, as one of my own household …”
Psalm 55:12-14 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him: But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance . We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
Pouring out our hearts to God is the beginning of healing those things that have wounded us so deeply, even when reconciliation is impossible, these honest complaints starts us out on a journey that brings peaceful resolve to our soul, if we continue seeking God in the process. The fact of the matter is sooner or later offenses will come, whether they are real, imagined, or misunderstood, nothing is worth the damage that harboring bitterness causes! For that state of being begins to harm back, multiplied, what was originally suffered. This making our bitter spirit hippocritical and foul in God’s eyes, while we have been forgiven by Him such great trespasses, we refuse to forgive others theirs.
This throws us into turmoil of soul when ever we see that person, or are reminded of an incident involving them or others.
Our soul literally begins to draw back and cringe up on the inside, our mind begins to plot an opportunity for revenge, an occasion to throw an insult, often over something that person has forgotten. We lose our balance, and bitterness and pettiness begins to consume us. When that happens there is no question it’s time to go to the Father and lay it all out before HIM. When we rehearse old offenses over and over again with a strange salty delight to do so, we are vexed with a spirit of bitterness. For our own spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical well being, we need to turn to God for help in eradicating these bitter roots out of our soulish realm. Befor they SPRING UP out of control, where by many become defiled because of the bitterness we spread.
Bitterness always leads us away from the Father. Bitterness will trouble your physical body and defile others in your sin of unforgivness.
We of the house hold of God need to remind ourselves of the danger of becoming hardened, because of the cruel afflictions of our own. Jesus said, offenses shall come, but woe to them by whom they come. Your insensitivity, your smallness of heart, could be that last straw, that cold wind of indifference, that draws the last bit of warmth from a heart battered, relentlessly, by the lawlessness of others. A pitiful soul that never knew love one iota seeking a glimmer of Christ, in the testimony called you, can get slapped by your coldness of heart. The law of Christ is to love one another, He said, “This is the greater commandment that you Love one another, as I have loved you …Beloved, let us love one another. They that love not, know not God, for God is love.”
Prayer: Lord renew an upright spirit with in me, help me love again, I choose to forgive others because I know that is right. Help me to release all offenses and let them go, for you have forgiven me of all of mine. Let all bitterness in my soul be washed out, cleanse me of its residual effects, help me bring healing to others, let love be my legacy, as I honor you with my life. In Jesus precious name, amen. Repeat as needed! Amen and amen!
Hope When Love Is Lost
Another startling condition, is that of one we love, whom has an embittered soul, where that flame of love has gone out, where no stirring, no breath of man can bring it back. Nothing anyone does brings that warmth back, it’s a grave and dark condition. In fact the stirrings and the blowing upon dead coals, or candles, only ensure what was once a flame, is no more. All loving efforts only perpetuates the absolute realization love is gone. But there is this amazing cycle of life that comes after the coldest of winters. This is hope that springs eternally in the power of our God, surrendering to Him the loss of love. Committing into His loving arms the loss of a loved one’s love. It is only the spirit of God that can quicken the dead back to life again. He can, He has, and He wills; but, we must love on, let go, trust and believe, casting our bread upon the waters …. Even the Word of Life who is the bread of life, as a release of our confession of faith, believing in the promise of that day of the restoration of all things- this faithful resolve works with in the inner chambers of the hardest of hearts. Remaining in love in our waiting. It is God’s job to fulfill His promises, it is our Joy to rest in them. Love bears all things, believes all things, because love endures … 1 Corinthians 13:7
Love receives reward
Love will endure the ache of separation, when the love of another has failed, remaining unwavered through the cold gales of winter. For the bud’s pre dawn is dormancy- The Holy Spirit’s stirring is able to awaken life deeply sleeping. Sorrow, loss, grief- suffering endures for the night, but joy comes in the morning! Trust that the wintery trek (given in God’s hands) of the coldest heart, will search for the compelling warmth of love’s hearth. This and our earnest prayers will bring the wearied soul to its (hearth) stones of rememberence, in the days where warmth abounded in the Fathers House! There is victory in Jesus, no matter how long we wait love endures and is empowered to do so. Even if we never get their love back, our goal is to see their return to the Father. This is unselfish love.
Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and go with singing unto ZION, an everlasting Joy shall be upon their heads, there shall sorrow and mourning flee away …
When True SPRING Comes
Will you trust them with me? Why do you sorrow so. I am working a work. The one you love is loved even more by me. I am working in the inner workings of soul and spirit, I Am the discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart, says The Lord, rest this matter in my hands and do not weather the matter more. Let it not ebb your joy. Your resolve to let go, live on, and leave it to me will hasten the recovery process, where both hearts will learn to rely upon me the more, and less upon one another, as their only source of refuge. The beginning season is here, where the dead seed in the ground, unseen by the eye, is going to be doing its miraculous work. Do you see this? That now faith is the substance of the thing hoped for the evidence of it yet unseen? Faith creates the perfect condition for me to work on behalf of all, in these sacred matters of the heart and soul. Let true spring rise in your soul this is your hope and glory. Christ in you.
Took a screen shot to capture credits for this photo and then noticed the time above it. So I am reminded on this Inauguration Day to NEVER FORGET. Never forget, America, it’s the mercy and grace of God that heals a nation.
“For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind”
A word for 2017 originally published Dec 23rd in podcast format.
Dodging the bullet in time to pass through the eye of the storm, these are the days of the whirl wind harvest. While droves become corrupted and led astray by words of flattery, the people that KNOW there God will do great exploits accomplishing acts of valor, motivated by love. For they that wait upon the Lord (in patient endurance) shall rise up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Tomorrow will not be possessed by the cowardly of heart, but the night will be overcome by those who endure in long suffering, it is they that will be as columns bearing up the portico of the TEMPLE of our God.
Of those KEEPING THE WORD OF HIS PATIENCE
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. [leading you to the renouncement of your faith] Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
