In Acts Chapter 16 we read about the young woman that attached her self to Paul’s entourage. Paul, who was called to Philippi to do an Apostolic work, became greatly troubled by what seemed to be this young ladies worship and shouts for people to come hear the way of salvation. What could possibly be wrong with that? She was a fortune teller possessed with the spirit called pythos. In this podcast:
Deana teaches on spiritual warfare, the small time operatives of Satan, and the principalities they are working for. Be not ignorant of the Devils devices! See how this same spirit is operating among us today, and how you can identify The Python Resistance, working among us.
I saw Ebola hit the Congo in a forested region in a vision in 2014. In the vision, I saw what I believe would be a worse case scenario should the epidemic spiral out of control. This involved improper and desperate disposal of the remains of Ebola victims that aggravated efforts to control the epidemic from spreading. The improper handling of the victims were not done by officials but people desperately trying to rid their immediate community of the dead. The vision was included in a prayer request for the Democratic Republic of the Congo on a popular prophetic website in 2014. Ebola in West Africa was still an epidemic and drew world wide attention between 2014-2016 where 28,616 cases resulted in 11,310 deaths.
After the virus was brought under control in West Africa, a new out-break did, in fact, occur in the Congo in 2017. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) there have been 561 confirmed cases and 370 deaths in the DRC. They are not out of the woods yet, and still need our prayers. No sooner that it gets stomped out in one area, does it flare up in another. The Congo is rich in cobalt. Cobalt is a material much desired by the defense industry. This epidemic is rarely spoken of in the news.
Why does God show us these things?
“… I believe this word is truly in its season. I believe that if you are an end-time intercessor who is appointed over people groups, countries, territories, and regions, you are in a ride of your life, this supernatural apostolic work, and its anointing is peeling back the darkness and we are seeing astounding things in the spirit. We need special prayer coverings over these prophetic and apostolic intercessors. Some might ask what is this kind of intercession? It comes from the eagle eye view in world matters. This specific kind of intercessor is finding themselves stepping into Satan’s war room as described by Jill Austin in her prophecy called God’s Mafia, where you will hear high level plans being hatched out against the kingdom of God and the innocent in the land. Even those who seek to control resources through out the earth and how they are conniving to possess or control them. We need to understand the onslaught of hell is against the headship of Christ who is the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Satan’s earthbound henchmen have no idea how close The Father’s majestic Kingdom broods over the affairs of this world. … He does know, all too well, the Head of the Church is Christ. And how much the Church is growing up into His Headship manifesting His governance in the earth …what greater way to war against God’s creation than to separate them from their Head. Because, in truth, Satan, himself, is in jealous rage against our standing in Christ, the King of King and Lord of Lords.”

Knowing What Is Next
Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.
In a dream I was on a visit at a family’s home right in the middle of a town. We were talking and walking around the back yard. There was a garden bed, it seemed 3 times bigger than my own garden at home. I had put this garden in for them, it seemed a while back. I remember building up the soil and measuring out the size of the bed, and planting seeds, and plants, in the garden for them, while they had been busy with life and family. I almost walked past it.
At first glance it looked over grown – with greenery, it hadn’t been taken care of. I didn’t see any thing ready for harvest yet. But when I looked closer and moved the overgrowth out of the way, I saw vegetables of all kinds: tomatoes, peppers, and onion, lots of vegetables ready to be picked. The garden was ripe and ready. Some over ripe, but nothing had perished yet. All the work had been done for this garden, it just needed harvested. I had planted it, but it was time for others to do their part. The Lord impressed upon me to look at the names, in the dream, to SEE the message and the Church. The name of the property owners in Hebrew meant:
The Store House Of Jehovah’s Flame.
There were children and babies in the house! “I looked up and saw a figure standing on the porch looking out. Their Hebrew name means “Where The King Meets.” In the arms of where The King Meets was “Rest.” It was up to the Flame of Jehovah to pull in the harvest. Flame represented the Zeal Of The Lord! All they had to do was harvest it, it was harvest time! A few things were at a fermentation stage but not lost. When I looked up I saw that they had fenced off their own land too narrow. It was suppose to be 4 times wider, and 3 times longer. This speaks of vision or the lack there of. (I’ll cover that in a moment). I was trying to get them to see their property line was farther down and wider than what they had fenced off. As far as the garden itself, the fruit was almost lost due to the lack of searching for a thing in its time, and season. They didn’t make the necessary effort towards WHAT IS NEXT, after cultivation, planting, and watering … that they clearly didn’t even have to do. There seemed to be no expectation for fruit. It was simply a matter of waiting for the fullness of the season for them, but the Store House Of Jehovah’s Flame, just walked past it all, pre-occupied with the back yard view. Clearly, this a form of spiritual blindness, on more than many levels, and I believe those plagued with this blindness are products of the institutionalized Church, that have a disconnect with who and what they are in the kingdom.
Do you not say, ‘There are still four months until the harvest’? I tell you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are ripe for harvest.Already the reaper draws his wages and gathers a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may rejoice together. For in this case the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. I sent you to reap what you have not worked for; others have done the hard work, and now you have taken up their labor.
We need to understand sequential processes that even nature teaches exist! To know what comes after … what is next, and look for it. The Kingdom of God is built upon the principles of agriculture and animal husbandry. Look at most of the Lord’s parables. Parables about plowing, sowing seeds, harvest, and threshing floors. Vineyard keeping. Stewardships, and debt settlements. All of these have one thing in common. That is natural order. Stages of activity required in any given season, that leads to the next. The bible says that there are times and seasons that are not for us to know that are in the Fathers hands. This has to do with Jesus’s return and the time of the end. All that is required of us is readiness and watchfulness. However, there are those things that are given into our hands to know. The time of harvest comes when it is time. It is “looked for, watched for.”
This dream tells me that there is a harvest that I’m in close proximity to, that is being neglected. From a personal level to a generational one. The laborers are so few, those looking and expecting for God to move are the only ones showing up for WHAT IS NEXT. As the sons of Issachar had wisdom to know times and seasons, so wisdom lines us up with God’s timing. An ability that knows what’s next, by observation and expectation of the demonstration and power of God- these are evident in those that walk in this because nothing will keep them from it! Pearls of great price, treasures in the field … are sacrificed for. But we cannot have passion in our slumber, no matter our zealous activity or activism; true passion seeks an awareness of what God is doing, and will be a part of it.
1 Ch 12:32 Of Issachar knowing times and seasons.
… And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brothers were at their commandment.
Commentary tells us this was a knowledge or gift they had that kept Israel on course, of them were 200 chiefs among the people. I believe the Body of Christ has this same kind of wisdom among us when we are operating properly. After all we are spiritual Israel. If members of the Body are isolated then they are cut off from the general concession in the determination of what IS NEXT, or left alone in it. Neither condition promotes the fulness of God, but I would rather go it alone into the field of harvest, possibly reaping another’s reward, than never going at all.
I’ve never seen the Lord do any thing random. One work, meeting, or outpouring, was in preparation for the season coming next. Yet, I’ve seen people step out of the order of God doing things that seemed a good thing to do, but they were cleverly disguised distractions. Equivalent to abandoning the plow in the middle of the field, in order to go build a barn. Failing to see that if that field doesn’t get plowed and seeded, in the right season, there will be no need for a barn! The worker of God needs wisdom, knowledge, and understanding; with their zeal, and fervor, to be most affective in the moment they are in. Above that they must believe in purpose. For everything there is a time, and season under the sun. They need to know, by the Spirit of God, the instrument that they are, and giftings surrounding them. Purpose is aborted when the purpose for conception is never realized. People abandon the natural process of what is next because they are either blind to it, or oblivious to their potential in it. Institutionalization creates a pattern or mapping in our brains that creates a mindless herd instinct. Rather than the realization that we are the temple of a fiery Holy Indweller that calls us to the Father, one life and breath at a time; our ability to see as individuals has corporate value, as corporate vision has value to individuals.
Hosea 4:6 declares-
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”
When we understand our calling, our gifting, and our placement, our focus cannot get side tracked. When we see the bigger picture, we find how disruptive our absence is when random impulse overrides intentional living.
Every farmer knows when to plant, when to tend, and when to harvest. It is by observation. Look and see!
To DISCERN the days of harvest.
All it took was to look. SEE the fields are white already!! In the parable of the harvest they were told to LOOK and SEE! There is a strange phenomenon being addressed in this parable. It is a blindness to what should be the obvious. Most churches send out a monthly calendar, planning their meetings and activities according to dates and holidays, often months in advance! Never considering that their yearly activities aņd holidays, are interrupting momentums of God! Often one person is in charge of planning these events rather than the entire presbytery meeting in fastings and prayers to plan, and assign commissionings, and gatherings of the saints. The Body is connected to the heart and mind of Christ collectively. Therefore WHAT IS NEXT should be seen collectively, or at least they would bear witness to the vision or direction collectively! But, that requires a Body fitly joined together. A devoted presbytery is enough, but ideally the flock is in unity. Look how they arrived together sending out and receiving one another in the New Testament. No one person is assigned to the decision making. Except when they are commended to God to fulfill a specific and singular calling. But, even the Apostles had to be received by the Church in their circuits. We see that John was actually wickedly rejected by one of those Churches, by someone acting on his own.
3 John 1:9 I wrote to the Church: but Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among them, receives us not.
A seeking people submitted to one another is less likely to derail the purposes of God. One acting upon their own, making decisions on their own, is trumping that they have no need of the hand. Or foot. It is simple. If our endeavors are the result of a personal commission of God, we act upon the leading of the Holy Spirit, and counsel and confirmations He crosses our path with. If our endeavors involve the Body of Christ as a worker among a Body of saints, than we are collectively led, using the presbytery- not forgetting to involve the congregation. In this way we can be sure our foot steps are ordered of the Lord.
Acts 15:22-2 Then the apostles and elders, with the whole church, decided to choose some of their own men and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They chose Judas (called Barsabbas) and Silas, men who were leaders among the believers. With them they sent the following letter: The apostles and elders, your brothers, To the Gentile believers in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia: in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia .. (study chapter 15 to see the churches rightful place in corporate decision making.)
Notice how visitors were sent out and received in this passage? Collectively, corporately. This minimized the chance of sending or receiving an apostate among the flocks of God.
Zeal without knowledge will find us barreling down dead-end streets that lead to no where. I can tell you countless times where Holy Spirit outpourings became derailed because of the Christmas season, and divine momentums lost because Easter had to be served with egg hunts and pageantry. Or, the yearly church picnic; or the Pastor’s family vacation. (Revealing reliances are not on Jesus’s headship but a personality.) A deeper discussion could be explored on how some of these activities, (say certain holiday observances) may actually grieve the Holy Spirit, and cause His departure, in the middle of what should have been days of renewal. Or, an entry into the field of harvest. Rather, these moments are frivolously squandered. Fruit falls to the ground and a harvest is lost. Many times people just shrink back. When all that we have to do is what comes next. This life style of making our appointments, as a people, requires a reliance on the Spirit of God, and an assembly of the faithful, not apart from either one. Follow the Spirit, and hang out with the faithful. Huddle with the ones who pay the price to obey. This will never forsake you.
Jesus ends the parable of the harvest with instructions to pray to the Lord of the harvest, to send forth laborers! Harvesters are skilled for just that, you have to know what you’re doing! But, it is field work so it doesn’t take that much instruction, more so, it takes the willing!
In this dream, the one appointed to bring in the harvest was taking a stroll, instead! There was vision but it was limited. Mindsets can limit vision. We were on a tour, but what I saw and what they saw was not the same! I saw a harvest over due. I saw work that couldn’t wait. I saw that the Store House of Jehovah’s Flame had a harvest about to rot in the ground, and a trust not comprehended, an inheritance fenced off too narrow, from its original size. Blind and short-sighted! Where there is no vision the people cast off restraint. In other words they do not live intentional lives. According to the responsibility staked out before them. They have everything they need but vision and wisdom to know what’s suppose to happen next.
This Christian at that very moment whose name speaks to having a zeal for God, was pointing out to me perimeters of a vision that I could see was just a quarter of what it was really suppose to be, while neglecting to see a garden ready to be harvested. This is twice the blindness.
Zeal is what all active Christians have. But activity and passion is not Wisdom Knowledge and Understanding. Thomas in the bible had a problem with doubt and unbelief, but He was not without zeal and passion. While Jesus was preparing to go raise Lazerus from the dead Thomas was preparing to go with Him and die. That is ZEAL. But it was zeal with out knowledge, with out understanding, with out expectation, it fell short of the will and purposes of God. Thomas was ready to die with His Lord. But, not prepared to believe in his resurrection power. For even as He saw what Jesus did for Lazerus, Thomas still doubted when he was told Jesus himself was resurrected from the dead. Thomas had zeal and passion, or he would have never been a follower of Christ. Yet, he lacked faith. This zealous disciple is known as Doubting Thomas. We can call Him Zealous Didymus according to the following scripture.
His disciples said, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone you; and go you thither again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbles not, because he sees the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him. These things said he: and after that he said to them, Our friend Lazarus sleeps; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. However, Jesus spoke of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. Then said Jesus to them plainly, Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent you may believe; nevertheless let us go to him. Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, to his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him …
Dieing for a cause is commendable. But it is a waste when our zeal and passion runs us past God’s plans and purposes for our lives. Again we see Thomas falling short of the point of it all, missing the power of His resurrection. Yet, he was chosen to be a disciple, and apostle of Christ. Jesus took the time to walk Thomas through, for better understanding.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen! Blessed are those who have never seen Jesus with their own eyes, but yet believe. Faith looks for the fruit in the days of harvest. Wisdom embarks upon the task with all the right equipment.
The trees and vines of spiritual inheritances, are hanging low, and heavy, but few labor to visit that place where expectation and harvest meet. We sometimes wonder why God uses others in the extraordinary way He does while life for most is status quo. I really am beginning to believe that faith is the factor. Too many are short sighted. Distracted, or just not using the wisdom of God available to them. There are a lot of busy souls in the Church! Activity to the brim with people trying to do something for God! But is it the right activity? Is it about what is next? I could see that the Storehouse of Jehovah’s Flame had been real busy. Busy fencing off potential, and ignoring the harvest they didn’t have to plant. Other laborers prepped the ground for them.
All God has for us to harvest is in plain sight. But we need to understand our seasons as a collective body of believers. When the house is in order as one people, rather than one personality, the Church will be what Jesus gave Himself for. When expectation doesn’t merge with knowledge and understanding, distraction easily pulls God’s people out of the point of why we cultivate, seed, and water in the first place. Otherwise, they acclimate to an endless cycle short of resolve. Short of harvest. Time and time again. It is a condition we can’t get a way from until we get it out of us. There is an epidemic, a curse in the land, where we are killing fruit before its term. This is called abortion. The Church, the body of Christ in our country, needs to take a cold hard look at why we seem to come to the threshold of movements, that are either aborted or lost at infancy. Break the curse. Trust the anointings that have brought works to term, that are anointed to do so. It takes every part of the plant to bring forth fruit. It takes every part of the Body Of Christ to do so too. Just as a pregnant woman’s condition is that she is pregnant. Not just her womb.
Harvest time is a change of routine. It often demands late nights with the combines in the fields, and early morning risings. Meals are on the move, because harvest is time sensitive.
” With out a vision my people parish. With out a vision they cast off restraints.”
Clearly, in the dream a work was planted among a people who had limited vision. While God has said one man sows, another man waters, and God gives the increase, it is also written, “Pray the Lord of the Harvest, to send laborers.” It may not be the laborers originally intended- others may walk in just in time to reap a harvest not planted in their yard. It is sad to see people lose benefits they didn’t know they had for lack of expectation, and wisdom to know their time and season. Times and seasons that sometimes shift as quickly as the shadows of eve, and then are no more!
God’s chosen vessels who have a purpose we may not understand, that come into our lives, are either utilized or rejected, we need to have the discernment to know they are a bridge for crossing. To take us where we can never go without them. Any more than the foot can be functional without the ankle. If that willing and obedient component is not realized, the Father will eventually move it out until it is realized somewhere as a significant part to the whole. That fellowship will reap the benefits, and accomplish the work. While the others that would not seek discernment to know whom God has set among them, continue to stumble in a cycle of never coming to term.
Counsel leads to acts of might as workings lead to miracles.
Walk the fields of expectation, seek to harvest that which has come to fruition. Pray that you have eyes to see, what is hidden out of view but is ready for harvest. Pray restrictions off understanding of the saints of God to remove mindsets that counter act vision, to see. To many times I’ve seen doubt and unbelief put the brakes on just short of break through. Many romance the thought to be greatly used by God, but shrink back at the threshold where mockery is intensified, and the opponents of Christ wish to lay them bare. Remembering without faith it is impossible to please God.
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.
Mark 4:24 Says take heed to what you hear. Make an effort towards understanding. What effort we make to know and walk in the Word of God, what measures we take- the same will be rewarded back.
Words are seeds. Words have power. When we allow the WORD of LIFE to have a prominent place in our hearts then weed seeds, the enemies lies, have no room to grow.
We are a product of what we believe.
Faith comes not but by HEARING, and HEARING by the WORD of God. Romans 10:17.
What is planted in the soil of our hearts, and nurtured will come to fruition. It will come to its harvest! Life or death! What is sown in your heart? Faith? Doubt? Confusion? Who is your teacher? The Holy Spirit? Youtube? Conservative television? Liberal media? When the big lie comes it will gather its own. The decision for truth begins now! And starts by plunging into the pure unadulterated word of God.
What is in our heart will bear witness to its Father.
Jesus told the Pharisees that their Father was the Father of lies. His sheep know His voice, a stranger they will not follow. But if the voices of this world is all that one is listening to, then how can they know the Lord’s voice?
Movements have already mounted themselves up on the power of their delivery. Ready to spring into action on what is believed as right. Posed to act as soon as the signal is given. The heart is secretly conditioned to respond, when the liar beckons to that harvest pre-sown, and nurtured by the spirit of the power of the air. Light and darkness will continue contrasting itself into the divide prophesied by Isaiah saying: Arise and shine for the glory of the Lord is risen, the glory of the Lord shines upon you. Deep darkness covers the earth, and gross darkness the people, but my light will shine upon you ..
Even among the household of the saints, are some among them, that will charge into action on what they allowed to pre-condition them, for many years. Heaping to themselves teachers tickling their ears. Inundated with information in this Information Age. If seeking to know the WORD of God, is not our daily bread, we will have little power to resist a global movement that is contrary to the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Mathew 10 will be fulfilled. Jesus said, “You think that I have come to bring peace, but I have come to bring a sword.” Households will be divided against themselves. Because the WORD is a sword, come to cut the flesh from spirit. God’s WORD has brought divisions since Emmanuel (God with us) has come. Not that Jesus sent the sword of His word to separate people from Him. But, so that works of the flesh will be separated from them, by the circumcision of the heart. Removing the flesh from the Spirit, for the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Consequently, those who resist Him, will allow the enemy’s lies to divide them from the household of God, splitting families. So what we have filled our hearts with in the hour we live in, will come to light. In this, what dominates the heart will be exposed. Inordinate passions are carrying many away.
The bible says people will believe they are working for God, persecuting His people. But they are fighting against the King of Glory. Christians (by title only) are fighting against Him right now.
In fact, the worst are still the religious leaders of our day. Making dependents rather than disciples. Raising weak congregations under the control and power of sorcery. They say, “What? I have no sorcerers in my flock! Ask your congregation how many are medicated? More importantly how many are on behavior stabilizing medications, because outrageous behavior is out of their control? How many addicted to pain killers? This is a scourge ravaging the homes and streets of America. An epidemic of seismic proportion. If we can’t claim our sanctuaries, how are we going to claim the world for Jesus?
How many are under the power of satanic control?
Horrified, pastors may want to try to change this condition over night. But it didn’t happen over night. The sorcery laden culture of this nation, in many places, has its own habitation nested among Christian assemblies. Under a jurisdiction of a powerless gospel, because God’s people did not obey the Lord’s requirement first, before they went to do the work of the ministry: He said, “Go and wait; until YOU are endued with power from on high!” After that they were to make disciples of all nations.” Which simply means to create followers that hold to the discipline of the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ. The good news! Good for setting people free of bondage! Leading them into the fullness of Christ, by casting out devils, speaking in unknown tongues, laying hands on the sick, and being immune to any deadly thing. Mark 16:15-17. Few reach fo that kind of power in their walk.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty!
Colossians 2:6-15 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the un circumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Too often the wind and fire of the Spirit of renewal is quenched by those who resist the Holy Spirit, often because they mistakenly believe they are the head of the church assigned to control the saints of God, they will not yield to the Spirit working in other people’s lives. If a word, gift, directive, or movement of God, doesn’t originate from them, then in their mind, it is invalid. Rather than adjusting to the move of the Spirit and accommodating HIM, in how He wants to work, and whom He uses, these who regard none other than themselves (and their own ambitions) resist HIM!
Jesus is the brain.
The body, and that includes the presbytery, (elders) is run by the brain. They are subject not only to obey the head, but operate as a part of the body. Not the whole of it, but to honor the functionality of it, as God designed. As all parts working as one. Jesus is the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and the government- resting upon HIS shoulders (the woven bands of muscle ligament and bone) which is the *presbyters working together, lifting the burden of the Lord, bringing alignment to the head. By and through, the mind of Christ leading. Teaching, with the shepherding graces of God. ‘The Body of Christ’ is called that for a reason.
I once heard a pastor announce behind the pulpit that he was the head of the church, and that what he says goes! When a pastor, bishop or elder, declares himself as the head of the church and postures himself over the people as their head, than that is a clear indication that a man is head over that church! If no one sees the problem with that, then they are in error. The pastor and the people have made themself an idol, and they are dutifully following him. Ironically, the word pastor is more associated with the position of a deacon, then it is a Bishop. In the Strong’s Concordance the etymology for the word deacon mentions the word pastor as a description type to certain duties of deacons. While the word pastor, is only mentioned once, and refered to as “with uncertain origins.” So it is disastrous to the development of the Body of Christ, when the only authority given charge has no clear definition to his job description. A pastor by definition is not to be an overseer. An overseer is a bishop. Elders are encouraged to “shepherd the flock” as stated in 1 Peter, but deacons are there to serve, attend, and assist. So a Pastor is a servant, that attends and assists. But, He is not an overseer. Bishops are “lead elders” apt to teach, and are appointed by an Apostolic anointing. Deacons are chosen by the presbytery. In a congregation of believers there are Bishops, Elders, Deacons, disciples, and followers of Christ. This makes up the pasture of HIS flock. Bishops, Elders, and Deacons, assist in the shepherding of the flock. Overseeing, counseling, and attending their needs. But, sheep are sheep, they have among them ewes, ewes with lambs, and even rams. They themselves expand their flock, naturally. Do you see the picture? Many have been getting this wrong in the institutionalized church.
Jesus is jealous for His own! He has declared, “I am coming for what is mine!” The Lord Jesus Christ is not pleased that HIS name has been used to funnel in millions of dollars for the care of brick and mortar, left empty most the time, at the expense of hooves, fleece, and hides.
If any of HIS are there, God will deal with it. He will shake them up and out of that mess, and mercifully take what is His. For I assure you, the lamp stand in such a place will not abide. The Lord seeks and saves those who are lost, He will kick around the empty shells of form and formality, to find His living breathing ones, and pull them out. Still, the cry of the Spirit is COME! Come out from among her my people, lest you suffer in her punishments! Let us answer, by leaving Babylon. Let us answer by making Christ the HEAD of the Church! For years the Exodus has been blamed on the Exodees. A mote has been built around the infallibility of theses blind guides for they have shut out, chased off, and persecuted anointings rising up among them. Their congregation, consequently, has an effeminate nature; leading personalities have been weeded out! Disciples never really graduate, and the youth are the most active in the congregation because they are inexperienced, they are younger and pose no threat.
Jesus Is The Head of The Church!
Jesus does the thinking! The presence of the power of God flows through every part of the body at once systematically, as it does in the physical body, when the brain sends a signal to it. The shoulders bear up the core and aligns the body with the head and the whole person mobilizes at the brain’s commands! But guess what? This happens when the body sends up signals through the senses of what the body is in need of. Better than the analogy of the body is this- God knows what we have need of before we even ask!
Isaiah 9:6-7 to us a child is born, to us a son is given: and the government shall be on his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, on the throne of David, and on his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from now on even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this
How activated and knowledgable each part is of its own function, reflects how effective the word of God is being preached, in any given church. Another description of this is called equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. Study Ephesians the 4th chapter. If they can’t function as one in our meetings how are they going to function in any other work? If there be only one functioning part, the body is incapacitated. Even a football team knows how to act as one body. An NFL member knows his conduct and team spirit is important on and off the field. He knows his position like the back of his hand! His coach and team mates honor him as a part of the whole that does what he does. That includes making decisions when he has to adjust when things don’t always go as planned. The coach and team mates trust him as a trained team player, doing his part!
The natural world is smarter, in their natural wisdom, than many houses of God that dare to say they are the church.
Where is the power?
Very few preachers, themselves, can even rebuke a little cold virus. Let alone keep their flock growing in victorious living. Knowing who they are in Christ, and the authority they have! Not neglecting the great salvation Christ wrought for us at the cross. Many are still being taught basic fundamentals of Christianity, forever drinking milk. But never being taught how to go beyond the washing of the blood (that all must have), for the remission of sins, and into the meat of our destiny, beyond the laying on of hands and baptisms and into the power of the resurrection life. Churches shouldn’t be closing down because of the flu season. They should be chasing that devil out of town, and any other epidemic, pandemic, or stronghold seeking to take over. We are the the representation of Christ in the earth! The works he did we shall do also, and greater works shall we do, because Jesus has gone to the Father and He has sent His Holy Spirit! The word of God says to pray for the city that you live in that you may LIVE there in and PROSPER! Jeremiah 29:7 Timothy 2:1-2.
The Lord of Harvest will gather His own unto himself. Based on what is growing from the field of our hearts- the deceiver may have already passed by that field and have recruited many to his work. Because their source has never been the WORD. Even though they know the bible front to back. Even though they quote it, another has come in while they have slumbered, and have sown weed seeds. While Christians stumble around in their walk with God, in their refusal to stay in His Word, and obey it- weed seeds are rising, choking out the word, and more alarming- blinding them from what is right before their eyes. We have no idea when the day will come when many will find themselves not prepared. Not prepared to believe God for miraculous provision, direction, and divine intervention. Not prepared to test the spirits, to know whether they are from God, because of what lies they have nourished. As wisdom is known by her children, so the fool his folly.
We have those Christians that are strong, out spoken, loyal, patriots that are in the same condition. Seeding their hearts full of controversy, following after American idols, and icons, they say, “Hey I’m all about God and country.” But God is the red white and blue to them, their meetings are more about politics and conservative radio, and conspiracy theories; worshiping Jesus is forgotten.
The same goes for those on the opposite side that has made the government their God.
Who takes care of them right now? Is God their provider? When their country blesses them, they are blessed, justifies them then they are justified, when the government makes them strong they are strong. Jesus said I’m the ROCK in a weary land, I’m the ROCK that will make you stand! Trust not in the Chariots of Egypt!
Lord told me one time that He could do no great works in a place, because the folks were all on disability checks, and didn’t want to lose their disability. I asked the Lord why then do these people ask for prayer and come for meetings? He said it was just their form. There is a form of Godliness they are accustomed to, meeting requirements that they believe is an insurance policy for them, fire insurance. For some they are bound by their infirmity and it has become their god, their provision. Some are gluttons for attention, indulgent, they want an ear to listen to them, but they in turn won’t listen; so full of that spirit they are used by satan to tie folks up in conversations, pre-occupied with self.
Snaring gullible sheep, taken captive by those who refuse to be set free, and trust in God. We need to be stronger than that by not shrinking back! Let them know they can be loosed from their captivity every time they open their mouth to glorify it! Jesus gave his body to be beaten with many stripes, for by His stripes we were healed! Let us not serve death, but let us serve Him, the Living Word! It’s that simple. This is how bad this culture of dependence has become for all people who will not believe. The enemy uses those that have no intention to serve God, some call themselves Christians, to tie up workers of ministry, wasting precious time, life, and resources. Living out foolish living, talking about mindless, worthless things.
The fire of the power and presence of almighty God is able to burn out the brambles and weeds of this satanic nesting found in every church controlled of men and not God. If only pastors would take their hands off the controls and let God. He loves us so much that when HE is in charge HE disciplines with fiery love! It is the only thing that gets rid of the overgrowth and brambles we have neglected in our lives.
Decades of forestry management has proven one thing. Putting out natural fires only reserves the dead and the dry for an unmanagable inferno later on.
Let the weeds burn, and the brambles blaze, Jesus said, ” I come to bring a fire and would that it already be kindled!” Well it is kindled and always burning somewhere. We need the full Gospel, we need the fire. Rather, we’ve just had faux burnings. They put a banner on the building saying Revival Meetings Tonight! So we know there is going to be some loud preaching and prayer that night. It will be a controlled ignition of a controlled flame. It will burn from 7:00 to 8:45 pm. Miraculously it will have burned out just in time to get the kids home to bed on a school night.
Soon a fire of judgment will burn. If we don’t get our hands off it, and really let God! There are materials that won’t burn. The fire just passes through, but where there is neglect, where there is a pile of wood, hay, and stubble, it is going to get hot! That fire is going to linger. What should burn will, its dry, it has no life in it. Jesus said,
“If they do these things now when the tree is green, what will it be when the green tree becomes dry?”
All this ends with fire for all of us. Let us yield to the baptism of fire! For that fire refines!
The baptism of fire, is a cleansing agent to refine. When Jesus does what He said He was going to do, no saint should be surprised. These unscheduled burns, these heaven ignited fires, precision lightning strikes, are not going to be predictable. In the west we call them wild fires. They can burn so hot, they become tornadic, creating their own winds. Why? Years of mis-managed controlled burns. And the dousing out of wild ones.
God help us in America and especially the bible belt. While the West has burned natural, devastating fires, the bible belt will have its own burning. Generations of faux movements and scheduled revivals are going to have rude awakenings, if they do not wake up, and meet the Lord of glory on His terms. Secret sins among those living double lives, so entrenched in the community, that children, and even children’s children have gown up thinking nothing about fornication on Friday and Saturday night, and the Church worship team, on Sunday. But your sins will find you out, the bible says.
The point is there is power available to us to overcome. Through Jesus Christ, and no matter what our condition is we can have joy and victory no matter what challenges we have in life. Love does not let people believe their lies. All we can do is speak the truth in love and rebuke that spirit off them.
After a while that thing starts to thin out, when the authority and power to walk and stand in victory is taught. When the power of our words are taught. Those devils start lifting off, or the people possessed by them just leave because what is being preached messes up their doctrine of defeat. Or their love for a luke warm gospel. Eventually, a power packed congregation, or fellowship, emerges. A power packed meeting will have signs. The doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ needs to make a come back! I remember, living among saints who would bombard heaven for all to be healed and delivered. Healings and deliverances happened in our meetings until there was hardly a thing to pray about. Bound up folks who couldn’t pray or worship God, were prayed through. We began to see many saved and come to the Lord.
The Sword of The Spirit, And Dividing Rod Of Separations.
For those seeking the Lord, there will be seasons of separations. The Lord, by His Spirit is working a work among His people and now is a time that these things shall move at a feverish speed. Time already feels like it is flying by. More and more “responses” to the word of God will seemingly upset the apple cart but just know the SWORD of the Spirit is working divine separations. Not necessarily for eternity but for promotion of growth and discipline. The Father desires all be saved. He can graft us back in, as easy as he can raise up stones in our place to become Abraham’s sons. But, we can’t play games any more, there will be consequences for the stubborn of heart. Woe to him who is often reproved, the bible says, he shall be suddenly cut off and that with out remedy!
Ya’ll think your all right but you are not.
People don’t understand how their countenance can betray the fact that an evil spirit has them in bondage. Perfectly, normal looking people, taking on catatonic facial expressions, while the power of God is moving through prayer ministry, or the word. I’ve seen female faces turn into male. I’ve seen facial twisting. and drooling, and not while in a deliverance session! That is from those just listening to the word. I’ve seen a 6′ 2″ tall sodomite bound by a spirit of witchcraft, controlling other inmates, beg prison guards to let him out of the chapel, because he couldn’t stand the power of God manifesting.
When we would do warfare against that spirit in the chapel, they would start lining up at the door. After the ones that wanted out left, the power of God would always fall, setting at liberty those controlled by them. Healings, salvations, deliverances. One time the Holy Spirit chased off half the members of a prison gang, starting trouble. The other half stayed and listened, two stepped up, and received Christ. Always take the full gospel into your meetings, let the body of Christ be the body. The head will always BE THERE! And where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty!
Many times people say they have their problems because God is teaching them something. The only answer to why one is sick, for example, in the bible, is for God to display His power to heal them. No other answer is given to that direct question. When people say it is because of sin, they need to remember that Jesus forgave sin, in order to display his power and “wills” to do both. Forgive and heal. Once healed though the Lord warns, “Go and sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you!” The outcome was always healing. Except when doubt and unbelief prevailed in a city. They responded to what they were seeded with. Jesus could do no great works in some places because of their doubt and unbelief. Their teachers in the synagogue taught them, seeded their hearts with so much traditionalism it made the WORD of God, who came in the flesh and dwelt among them have no effect. When Jesus comes again will he find faith in the earth?
It is up to us to be caretakers of the garden of our hearts. A yearning for all God has for us is the motivator.
People believe that they will respond to the Lord of Glory, when He comes. They believe that they will gather with Jesus when He comes. When He came the first time a whole nation of people looking for their Messiah missed Him. Only a handful of saints compared to the world population even saw Him, come and go. What is seeded in our hearts, what we have been conditioned to believe, will either have us ready, or so weeded up in our hearts, and minds, it will all be over before we have time to scramble our lamps and oil together. Don’t think so?
Look at the parable of the ten virgins. Five foolish, and five wise. Five left in a panic, because they were not ready. Suddenly seeing what they lacked, but there was no time to do anything about it. They didn’t have enough to see themselves through the night. They knew enough though, that He came and went. Great regret will take hold of many who will lose what they could have had! For they were numbered with those of the wedding party. Pray that the weeds planted in your heart hidden and known will have an encounter with the fire of the Holy Spirit. Let it burn up every false and lying thing. You might lose a faux position in your faux little world, but what is ashes to the wind? Let God perfect you!
A few weeks ago the Lord showed me that ponies were meant to be horses. That they are a landrace. which is a species of a plant or animal altered from its original form as a product of their environment. God is pulling horses out of the ponies. They will be arrayed for battle. A pony can’t make the cut. They are for children and petting Zoos. Time is running out! Now is time to press in, for any day now a chain of circumstances can find us in the balance, found wanting!
... Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing you are dull of hearing. For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Derek Prince, in this video, is preaching on playing church, and religious spirits, and a lying spirit manifests in the meeting. People! This was real then and it is even more real today, as we move towards the end of the age. I can absolutely testify that religious spirits manifest when light exposes their masquerade. Revealing the enemies lies. People wonder why they can sit just fine in their church, Sunday after Sunday, year after year; but then go to a Spirit filled meeting and end up foaming at the mouth on the floor, or running out the door! It is because religiosity doesn’t change us, nor does it grow us. It keeps us looking good, and will even promote us. While a masked charade continues its work in our lives. Until the Living Word is released in His power. No matter how Full Gospel a church can claim to be, if that church quenches the Spirit of God, then there will be bondage, that bondage keeps us as slaves. For where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty! We can talk power, preach power, and walk like we got power, but yielding to the Holy Spirit is the only thing that brings in the power!
An Ancient Pilgrimage Genesis 24
Keep an account of Her. Her going out and coming in. Watch her as you watch for HIM, more. THE one chosen, the one HE loves. The called out for, to have and to Hold. Whom he ransomed for a GREAT price. See her, how she has made herself ready. The one, as the story is told, whom GOD spoke of. HIS servant met HER at the well. She drew for him of the deep waters. The ONE chosen by the Father. Whom was pre known; kin of His Kin.
The one LAUGHTER, He Has gone down now, at evening tide before they arrive.
She lifts up her eyes and sees HIM, there is a catch in her breath as the bride enquired of the servant (as she had already lit off the camel) “Who is this?” The servant replies, “This is my sovereign.”
The original Hebrew words of this story of Isaac and Rebekah paint a beautiful encounter. The sun is setting as Isaac walks out into the field to meditate. It is reasonable to believe this was something he did quite often. This time, He saw coming an entourage of camels, the servant, and his servant’s, servants. The bride, her nurse, and maidens. The Hebrew word for damsels suggest children of an unknown age from infancy to adolescence, the root meaning is not necessarily female, but rather child servants. Boys and Girls. Rebekah, the delightful young woman that she was, revealed her personality at the well where she met, and accommodated Abrahams servant, and his camels, with their fill of water. We can draw a safe conclusion that Rebekah was full of life, very engaging, hospitable, and played the big sister to the less fortunate of those around her. After all, the well was the place to be for a lovely girl like Rebekah. No doubt, her little brood of admirers were gathered in the entourage, to accompany Rebekah; to grow up as her servants in the household, and shadow of the renown dwelling among the nomadic, unmistakably identifiable, even from a distance, the place of refreshing, benevolence, and hospitality … The house, the mobile city known as SARAH’S Tent.
Sarah’s tent, renown and honored (as the original language of the scriptures describe) seemed to be more than just a dwelling among nomads. It is a picture of New Jerusalem. Sarah’s tent was a sight to be seen as soon as it came in view, gauged against the horizon.
The original Hebrew wording gives us this picture of their first encounter. Rebekah sees Isaac and the scriptures says she lited off the camel, truer to the original language, she actually dismounted the camel so enthralled and focused upon Isaac that she sort of fell into her dismount, and then regained her composure, while learning from the servant (who is a type and shadow of the Holy Ghost) that the man Rebekah sees standing in the field to greet them is her beloved. She then veiled herself in order to be identified as the one whom Father Abraham had sent for. Of all who stood before him, the veil signified his bride as the ONE among them who was free born. Another picture in type and shadow, that Rebekah was there of her own freewill, as all are, in Christ.
The account of Rebekah’s response reveals a sense of dignity and pedigree, after the servant confirmed what her heart already knew, she immediately pulls together her covering garments for modesty, after her unassisted dismount; at the same time, the Hebrew words describe she covered the hollows of her form, and stood up to present herself as any lady would, modestly, yet purposely, plumping the folds of the garment to give hint of her femininity; as, one commentary suggested. It is also mentioned in another commentary that she prostrated herself before Isaac as Abigail did David; however, the brief passage leaves that open for discussion. It is a gesture beyond what is required but who would deny her that response? The next scene (we are told) is when Isaac takes Rebekah into his mother’s tent and was then comforted from Sarah’s death.
Sarah’s name broken down in pictograms of the ancient Hebrew alphabet contains a “hidden” name or description of Sarah’s life; it reads like this: “The one who saw two great destructions.” This enables us to look at Sarah whose name directly means princess, as a type and shadow of that Kingdom abode, from where the scripture says “Only with thine eyes shall you see the reward of the wicked.” From a distance only, did Sarah see the smoke of Sodom and Gomorra, as it will be for those who rest in that heavenly ECONOMY of hospitality, and benevolence; wrapped in the arms of a greater promise that of Abraham. This world’s two great destructions- one by water, and the other by fire, will become a distant memory as the old order of things pass away, and all things become new. Sarah’s passing takes with her the memory of the sorrows of this world.
This ending the picture of Christ meeting His Church, the Sojourning Bride, safely handed over to Him, by the guide of all guides; even, the precious Holy Spirit that completed His work. The lovely lady, was kept in His unbroken custody to present before the Kings of Kings, and Lord of Lords; His bride, by Her own free will. Her and her entourage, forever. Her personal servant with her, a nurse named Deborah, accompanied her in her journey. The Hebrew name Deborah is translated bee which also, means word. So there you have it, a perfect picture of the bride of Christ brought to Him, safely, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, with the assistance of the WORD OF LIFE.
Beloved, are we not in that procession this day? Bearing gifts of His own? Onyx stones, and bracelets, little bells upon the priestly hems, and ankles … surely, she has anointed herself with HIS oils and perfume. This journey is a progressive procession of joy, of righteousness, and truth, in the Holy Ghost. This is the BRIDE who made herself ready, who meets Him at the well. Escorted daily in His accommodations, held in His sacred trust, with the WORD OF LIFE in attendance.
Song of Solomon 6:9-10
My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, the only one of her mother, pure to her who bore her. The young women saw her and called her blessed; the queens and concubines also, and they praised her. Who is this who looks down like the dawn, beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun, awesome as an army with banners?”
Song of Songs
“Listen! I hear my love! Look! Here he comes! He’s leaping across the mountains. He’s coming over the hills.
The one who loves me is like an antelope or a young deer. Look! There he stands behind our wall. He’s gazing through the window. He’s peering through the screen. He said to me, ‘Rise up, my love. Come with me, my beautiful one. Look! The winter is past. The rains are over and gone.
Flowers are appearing on the earth. The season for singing has come.
The cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig trees are producing their early fruit.
The flowers on the vines are giving off their sweet smell.
Rise up and come, my love. Come with me, my beautiful one.’”
..And the SPIRIT and the BRIDE call out, come now! Even come Lord Jesus!
Beloved! Come Along! – deana barnes
… they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, you are God, which have made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that is in them …Acts 4:24
I want to talk about the power of corporate moves of God, brought into smaller meetings at home. When we meet together in Christ we might as well begin to think of ourselves as the member of an orchestra or choir! Because this is what the Church is, an instrument in God’s orchestra! After all we are called the Body of Christ, and every part has his or her place.
Lifting Up One Voice
While in buildings, a larger group usually has a platform for appointees to lead out, and bring congregants into unified prayer or worship; in smaller groups it doesn’t necessarily have to work that way, because they are often less structured. We need to remember the first Christian family met under circumstances more similar to a home meeting, rather than buildings and platforms; with microphones, and speakers. Jesus said that when ever two or three are gathered in His name, there HE is in our midst. This is going to be different than our personal time with Him, that is usually inwardly focused. Christ is in us, and we are in Him. In a group He draws us outward to the center of the gathering, where He is. He is the head of the Church, and we (through Him) become joined in a corporate move of HIS Spirit.
When we continue to gather in this way Jesus nits our hearts together, and we become unified in spirit, as the group evolves.
Coming together in one mind and accord is quickly accomplished by praying, and worshiping together, as long as the prayer, praise, and worship, achieves corporate status. What the bible calls “coming together in one mind and in one accord.” As strange as it seems, individuals in a group gathering can be so timid and internal in their prayers and worship, that the group never achieves a true unity of spirit. In fact fractions are more likely to exist in a corporate setting that does nothing to spiritually unify the people to function as a body. Jesus is unable to show His power among them, they must yield to the corporate anointing, and enter in.
A good way to enter in is by simply yielding to an anointed vocal lead that has lifted their voice up in prayer, or praise, to draw the group into unity. In a smaller setting the group can just begin to move in open laudation, until a lead voice is made distinct while praises to God go upward. The lead laudation is an anointed voice of worship, prayer, or praise, that the group finds easy to follow. Your spirit will feel the power of agreement.
What is then good to do is to blend into that laudation. As other voices blend, the lead out dissolves into a corporate voice, this group has achieved a “one in mind and one in accord” voice of praise, worship, and prayer. The lord uses whom ever HE wills, and with that we begin to blend our voice in worship, with the most anointed laudation going forth among the saints, (whom ever the Spirit has moved upon) and this is going upward, and not inward, but is of throne room power! Following inspired leads in the Spirit is called “being carried in” to anointed worship. Worship leaders do that for congregations all the time, if they have the anointing to do so.
I’ve seen groups become so unified that no lead voices are needed, they just enter into the high praises of God all at once! Jumping into the deep side of the river of God all at the same time!
It is the Holy Spirit that leads the saints to a higher ground of worship, praise, power, and ministry. Remember we want that because it is the anointing that breaks the yoke! An Holy Spirit inspired group breaks powerful resistances! Sometimes, in spirit filled meetings, there is an appointed person that has that spearhead anointing and they may do that for a season. But, it can change, and should be interchangeable as new lead voices enter in. As the scripture says when something is revealed to another they should then have their turn, and the word says let the first prophet then yield. 1 Corinth 29:29-30
So when a new voice of leading matches the existing voice in anointing, the new voice should be given place, that will lead the group up and onward toward unified prayer, worship, and praise! This is good practice in prophecy, ministry, sharing the word, and spiritual songs. Sometimes the person who leads out hears a laudation of praise in a less bold voice that they blend with, and they amplify it up corporately and that starts the one mind and one accord laudations, because they carried an anointing that leaped in their spirit when it was heard. A wise worship leader will amplify from their platform what is hitting the masses, in waves of glory, to pull it in and send it back out, that the glory reaches those at the far ends of the meeting place. In a smaller groups, the group just carries it on from glory to glory.
Give The Lord His Due
We Got to give God HIS first before we move in on a pre determined event or need. Sometimes, our Spirit filled worship brings so much power the needs are washed away, and freedom falls down like a blanket over everyone. The first Spirit filled meeting moved in this way, while all were praying in one accord, the power of God came down and they were all filled! When we pray, and a voice goes forth with power, and it is outward and not inward, and it leads and lifts the gathered believers up into corporate anointed prayer- then that unified prayer will carry against oppositions, against God’s people, on a corporate level, or even city wide.
It brings in the move of the Spirit! As one makes five thousand to run, two or more makes tens of thousands! This is the power of unified prayer against the enemy! In the event that the Spirit leads us into unified prayer, it is good to remember, our prayer closet prayers are wonderful, but corporate prayer ministry is a little different.
When we bury our face, or walk to a corner, and start praying to ourselves, or turn on our own music, and plug it into our ears, we are disbanding from the group.
We should do these kind of prayers before meetings, only. To get our heads straight for the group. It’s ok to have early time in a corporate setting to give people time alone with God, but when it’s time to come together, it is time to walk out of our prayer closet and join the group. When the saints of God continue in corporate ministry, the mind of Christ will come forth. Christ is working by His Spirit, collectively in the midst of the saints, that are gathered. Together, our hearts are synchronized by the Spirit of the Lord to carry the burden of the Lord.
When we lead in prayer out loud we must not go to prayer changing from subject to subject, as if we are working through a list. We have to make sure we do not shift the focus, before others are able to audibly agree or enhance the prayer with their own spoken power of agreement. Saints that run through a list of prayers, leading in corporate prayer, are forgetting that they are not in their prayer closet, and that another instrument of God may harmonize on the matter, in a way God may reveal them to do so. That will add power towards the answer.
Also, when in corporate prayer our prayer focuses should be corporate when praying for individuals in the community. Instead of praying for that one in jail, pray for all those that are in jail and prison in the community. Or that one battling cancer, come against the spirit of cancer on all the saints of God you know. Trouble with a child, lift up all sons and daughters in rebellion, because in that group there is power to do it! Remembering to give room, and give place, to one another. So that not one stone is left un turned. For another vessel in the group may have a revelation to share on that burden of prayer; bringing words of knowledge, and wisdom, in the matter, that would move it into victory.
When corporate anointing is freely expressing itself in unity, an event of power and Holy distribution of healing and deliverances will ensue.
Like what happened on the day of Pentecost, a powerful move of God spilled out into the city through a Spirit filled, unified group, unashamedly worshipping God!
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with ONE ACCORD in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house. Act2:1”
This is how we can be sure to be led by the SPIRIT and not by our human spirit or emotions. When we allow group ministry to enter the house on a corporate level, at times healing and deliverances take place while we are busy unified in the Spirit, in worship and prayer. It is later after we have ushered in the SPIRIT like one mighty river (with our individual streams of worship, and prayer joining in) that there will be an abundance of anointing to do personal ministry over those who have already been under a deluge of power, in unified praise and worship.
This is that which loosens and pre-soaks hard roots so that personal ministry and deliverance will be most effective. Over the years I have had many prayer meetings, and home meetings, and have taught on corporate prayer. It is very sad to attend a prayer meeting at a church or an event that has 50 to a hundred people walking around, by themselves, standing in a corner, bent down at an alter, and milling around in the foyer, and you can hear a pin drop, with no unified voices lifted up! This is not corporate prayer. It is individual prayer in a corporate setting, and more times than not the Spirit of God is quenched, and the power that could have been released from that meeting, is for ever lost.
When groups first begin to come together. It is important that ministry doesn’t get locked into an introverted flow, time and time again.
It’s important to minister to one another, and is in many ways the whole point; but, when we give the Father the first portion of anything- the latter portion will be multiplied, in healings, deliverances; and in word, and prophecy! As we seen with Peter, who preached to the people when 3,000 were saved! He did this after a corporately anointed meeting!
Getting Started With A Reserved Group
If you have a church or group and it is difficult to bring the group together in one mind and accord, than making a gesture to come in a circle to hold hands is a good start. That is a unity excersize, as is singing songs, and letting people each share, breaks the ice. But you may have to embarrass your flesh to lead them into out loud laudation yourself. Go ahead there is usually one just hoping you would so they can join you in the bunch! Lead them into that abandoned worship, where each one forgets about him or herself self, and lifts their voice entering into the flow of the Spirit- this is called the high praises of God, and is what creates extraordinary moves of the Spirit.
Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord God almighty! Who was, is and is the to come!
From the original podcast: The Power of Exposure /by Deana Barnes 1/5/2017
I’ve put it into your hands says the Lord, I’ve laid into the hands of the saints, this nation, in a time of great exposure, your prayers have turned the tide, even the ebb and flow of destruction, bent on re defining the shores and borders of your very existence. What the enemy has had in his imagination to do to you has been snatched out from his hand, for this time and season of RETURNING, says the Lord. But you my people must continue to speak to that hidden power that has begun to make many tremble as if it is a mountain rising, simply command it,
“Be thou removed and cast into the sea! Send it to the abyss for from the abyss false imaginations rise, your response is either of faith or of fear, test the spirits speak my word, in doing so you disqualify the power of lying signs and wonders .”
The Lord showed me upon that foundation laid, upon and over Holy Intent, has there been a net working, of roots, and snags, of holes and passage ways- of rats and moles, of rodents that burrow beneath. Unlike the foundation laid in stone, or the words etched in marble – this that has exalted itself against the knowledge and wisdom of God shall witness a deluge of disclosures still to come. What is set and drawn from the stone the builders have rejected, but has indeed become the cornerstone, is aligned with that which cannot be moved.
In prayer for the region of Washington DC.- January 4, 20017; the lord showed me a great granite mountain rip beneath the ground and upward, and the Lord said this is the power of the prayer of the saints. When this happened I saw those under ground systems get ripped up by it, I heard the sound of snapping roots, and saw cables hanging out in the open that looked like computer cables and wiring along with other old rooted systems being exposed. I also saw what was left of the passage ways and pay ways of mole and rat trails beneath Washington DC. The Lord said, keep speaking, commanding, rooting out in the power of my name, for the word for America is EXPOSURE. ALL WILL BE EXPOSED.
The intense power of exposure will spill out into every aspect of American lives. It will seem messy, it will at times, feel like chaos. Christians will wonder, and say out loud, what were we thinking’ what have we done? Weak leadership will cave and publicly renounce the former stance they took up during a time when it was popular to make statements they made. Men and women of great influence of all walks of life, beginning in the house of God, will tremble in their beds waking up to exposures wrought through the night.
“The more they have hidden as if thinking that I am not a God that sees, the greater the spirit of trembling shall come upon them.”
I see this in the true church not to destroy them but to cleanse them from a culture of disingenuous practices towards men women and children, of Church and State of politics, and religion, wayward sons and daughter will be called back to their Godly roots during this time. Astonishingly there will be flip flopping in the congress and senate, born out of the shear mercy of God to right the wayward heart in its destructive path. I see a fainting judge. Fainting under the stress of the power of conviction burning in the heart, once again God is calling many by name for the faithful prayers of those who loved him, served him, and trusted their children’s children into His care by his promise to show kindness down to a thousand generations. A dormant branch eyed by the pruner budding in the nick of time, God is doing this.
The obstinate will slip away into the night to resurface in their appointed time reserved for judgment. All will be shaken. The spirit of trembling shall fall upon this land for exposure will even expose destroyers posed against her. Causing an awakening to the reality of the perilous times our world is in. Yet, my people who have begun a good work, who have pledged to see it through, shall make great strides in cleansing this land from the abomination of falsehoods, lying, and idolatry. Done so by the power of their words in the authority of my name.
The foundation of Holy Intent preserves my plans for America, says the Lord.
For she has a destiny, yet unfolded, a purpose yet unrealized. My promise unto the faithful who have loved me to a thousand generations … coddles their posterity into the palm of my hand, I am their refuge and strength, I correct them, I wound them, I will not forget to heal them, says God. They who call upon me are mine and their children are under the power of my protective gaze that sees them among all nations, there is nothing hidden from the Father of Lights. Though these times be tumultuous and unnerving know the waters must rise to the ankles in order to wash out what is burrowed beneath. This also is that work of exposure in the land. Though wading through that which has been revealed is unpleasant, unpopular, and disconcerting- time will abate shame filled waters, and a fresh day spring emerge.

Job 33:15-16 In a dream in a vision of the night when deep sleep falls upon man …
Dream Journaling. Clothing we wear in our dreams, and color.
If you remember clothing in a dream- then what you or someone else is wearing has significance to the message of that dream. I don’t believe every dream has a need to be interpreted. But I do believe the Lord can seal up instructions to us in a dream, in the midnight hour. Because that’s what the scripture says He does. The biblical way of interpreting a dream is not breaking it down in symbolism. Although symbolism is important, the true biblical way of understanding a prophetic dream is through the God given gift of interpretation, and prophecy. However, understanding symbolism is often in an interpreter’s arsenal.
Anyone can compile together information on dream symbolism, but it takes a spirit of wisdom working with the gift of interpretation, to apply a dream in God’s order. This is the Kingdom way to minister a dream’s message by the one who inquires of the Lord for its meaning. Any other way, is considered equivalent to seeking out magicians that peep and mutter for an answer to a dream, vision, or mystery, given by the Lord of Hosts. In other words psychics, mentalists, spiritists and spiritual guides are a counterfeit to what God has ordained to view or interpret His messages. These alternate sources that seem to ring true at times, or are (seemingly) right, never lead anyone to repentance, or the power of the shed blood of Jesus, that cleanses us from sin. God’s standard is the biblical standard.
Many times I’ve been sent a dream I thought could never be understood, but I would take it to the Lord any way, just incase. Nothing would come to me and I have to admit at times I’ve said to the Lord, “Why do people send me these silly, nonsensical dream?” But, I would go to sleep and the next morning wake up knowing the dream’s message! When God unlocks a mystery no one can deny it. It is biblical to get the meaning of a dream you’re trying to interpret, from God, in what Daniel of the bible called “visions” of the night! In other words “sleeping on it” has biblical merit! Anyway back to garments and color. One of my most popular articles discusses the color black in dreams. I’ve had thousands of people land my page searching for what wearing black means in dreams, and on the meaning of windows in dreams.
So I want to talk more about what black clothing in dreams may imply, so that you can take it to prayer if you’ve ever been stumped by such a dream. The reason I choose this color is because it could be the one that needs the most prayer. Often, when people see themselves or someone else wearing black it represents sorrow, mourning, heaviness, famine, lack, judgement or sin. What the person is doing in the dream gives context to the mood, and their emotional condition. The TYPE of clothing can be to what the dream may apply. Work, school, church, at home; or away from home; recreation ect., The KEY is that clothing can be taken off and replaced with another wardrobe; therefore, what ever the dreamer’s condition is, that condition is subject to change.
It takes intent and the WILL to change. Sin, sickness, sorrow, famine, and disease are all remedied by seeking the one who is our life. Jesus died that we might live, He was beaten with many stripes that we may be healed. Thirst and famine of soul and body is remedied through Him. Jesus feeds our soul- He is the bread of life. A black garment could represent spiritual famine- our deep need for the bread of life. What ever the need is our Father provides for His sons and His daughters. Doubt, fear, and unbelief; even a famine of the Word of God, clothes us in lack. We can put off all of these things by pressing on in CHRIST. Even if it is reflecting a natural need, God is our provider, the Father is ever saying to us, “Come to me.”
So when we are wearing black in our dreams our garment, normally, is in need of change. God wants us to know how much more He wants to clothe us with kingly garments. Ephesians 6:11 tells us to PUT on the full armor of God. We have to take the time it takes to strap on our gear, and make sure it’s on correctly. Again, clothing is what we choose to wear, so living our lives haphazardly can show up in a dream when we find ourselves in a business meeting with our pajamas on! Reminding us to start living our lives with intent. Prison clothes belong to captives, a fireman is putting out fires; if we forgot our pants at home and we are sitting in the class room, we may feel naked and self conscious about learning new things; we may not feel ready for the task ahead.
As circumstances are subject to change, however, so it is when we are frustrated with our wardrobe. We can change what we need to change with God’s help. Our dreams open our eyes to see a more perfect way, or to confirm our way is being perfected by Him.
Luke 12:28 If God clothes the flowers in colors array so carefull, that are here today and gone tomorrow, how much more will He clothe you- oh you of little faith?

And He will destroy on this mountain
The surface of the covering cast over all people,
And the veil that is spread over all nations.
“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.
The Five Fold Tier Of Prophetic Interpretation.
Deana explains how special anointings and giftings from out of the fivefold ministry, (mentioned in Ephesians 4) impact variation in prophetic interpretation.
This Election Year’s Litmus Test Of An Apostate.
For all those who profess Christ- I made the decision to watch a video of a partial birth abortion. Not because I needed to know what a partial birth abortion was, but because I wanted to see what could possibly be misunderstood about them, that any one could question such an act as a medical procedure- RATHER than the grisly murder of an innocent life that it is. Setting aside terminating the life of all pre-born children; what I viewed on this video was a legal abortion clinic taping a snuff film that took the life of what appeared to be a full term, partially born, infant. Though partial birth abortion was allowed until it was banned in 2003, extreme leftist politicians still defend it.
Any politician that would argue that this procedure isn’t murder, or that it is a necessaory evil to protect lives, is sinning against God and all that is decent, and good, in the world. They have been given over to a reprobate mind. Christians who support such persons to give them legislative or executive powers in the earth have to be REPROBATE, there is no other explaination for it. ANY CHRISTIAN that supports a candidate who does NOT CONDEMN late-term abortions, and/ or partial birth abortions, (again setting aside all abortions) is an apostate AND a reprobate. To be under the guidance of a (so called) Christian leader that SUPPORTS, or DEFENDS, such a barbaric act- THAT CHRISTIAN leader is a WOLF in Sheep’s clothing. Run from him or her! THOU SHALT NOT MURDER! This abomination serves the blood lust demands of the ancient demon god called Molech, and is what possessed NERO, now manifesting in ISIS.
There is no riding the fence on this one, as Jesus said: “It would be better that a mill stone be wrapped around …” (Apostate preachers you should learn the rest of that verse …) Dear sisters, If you are the victim of these meat grinders and they talked you into this procedure to take your baby, rather than allowing the child to be given up for adoption- there is forgiveness and HEALING FOR YOU IN CHRIST; Healing is IN HIS wings! Seek the Lord while He may be found AMERICA … all pre-born lives matter. A doctor who loves his practice as a healer, is destroying his or her own soul, knowing full well what he/she is doing, when they involve themselves in the practice of abortion. God wishes that no man should perish you can find forgiveness through seeking Christ in repentance, becoming an advocate for all life. Christian America we have let our light go out on this one. We have lost our way and need to repent.
Clinton could have washed her hands from an extreme leftist stance on late-term abortions that are already banned in many states; but, SHE CHOSE NOT TO. Late term abortions have been proven to be used (more so) as an act of birth control, rather than to protect the life of the mother, which is an extremely rare occurrence.
Leviticus 18:20-21 ..’You shall not have intercourse with your neighbor’s wife, to be defiled with her. You shall not SACRIFICE your offspring to OFFER them to MOLECH, nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the LORD. You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.…

The Following -An Excerpt from- Abortion And The Ancient Practice Of Child Sacrifice. By Dr. Andrew White M.D.
“The most obvious parallel between the right of child sacrifice and the practice of abortion is the sober fact that the parents actually kill their own offspring. There are however many other parallels. At Carthage the main reason for sacrificing a child was to avert potential dangers in a crisis or to gain success through fulfilling a vow. Today many times when a woman faces an unwanted pregnancy, abortion seems to be the only way to resolve the crisis she finds herself in. The potential danger to reputation, education, career, etc., become overwhelming. To avert the seemingly terrifying consequences of carrying a pregnancy to term, the woman may turn to abortion as a means of escape. Another woman may experience much less of the anxiety and fear that accompany a crisis. She may simply see the pregnancy as an intrusion into her self-serving lifestyle and an obstacle in the way of the road to her success. Sadly this woman’s offspring must be sacrificed so that she can continue uninterrupted with her plans for the future. -Dr. Andrew White http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evils in America/Abortion is Murder/sacrifice.htm
Jeremiah 32:35: ” … cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do such an abomination …
Dr. Andrew White- “It is no secret that in American society extramarital sexual intercourse (fornication and adultery) is the cause of most pregnancies that end in abortion. Pregnancy is a risk many are willing to take knowing that any undesired consequences can be eliminated by abortion. The theologian Carl Henry recognizes this fact in calling abortion “the horrendous modern immolation of millions of fetuses on the alter of sex gratification.””-An Excerpt from- In Abortion And The Ancient Practice Of Child Sacrifice.

This is a dream coaching segment in addition to an article on Window Screens In Dreams
Message: Hi .
I had a dream or night vision of my daughters bedroom window that
Open and a tear in the screen and the air blowing. That’s all I remember.
What’s interesting is all the windows in our home are closed because where we live is so hot & dusty so we run the a/c. Everything looked the same in the dream as it is in real life curtains , window size , the only thing that was different is the tear in the screen.
Also earlier that night I woke up twice from hearing 2 cats fighting right by my daughters bedroom, she’s five so I slept on her bed with her when I had this dream. If you could help me understand the tear in the screen that’s a mystery to me. Thank you. T—

Dear —-, this is a dream coaching segment and not an out right interpretation. What you described is more in the category of a night vision, which is a dream that makes you believe you are awake, when in fact you are sleeping. The following includes some excerpts from NWP dream journal articles.
Screens On Windows Act As Filters. A Word On Windows (NWP)
Windows and window screens are there to protect people from too much exposure from the outside world, filtering out unwanted insects and animals, while allowing air flow in the room. You can see and hear through the screen, but you cannot touch or handle what is being filtered out. Our windows, the screen and its frame work, are that which we view the world through, safely. The frame work of the word of God, and the window glass of the prophetic serves, in the same way, with in the house of the Father. That is why in every realm of operation, spiritual discernment, prayer vigilance, and the study of the word of God, is paramount for a well maintained estate, in this world.
A broken or torn screen symbolically indicates that what is unwanted out doors is able to get inside physically, morally, spiritually, or intellectually. A damaged screen is torn by animals, thieves, or robbers.This is a demonic attack. If the dreamer is trying to get into his own house he has the right of entry but going about it the wrong way. A forced entry when we’ve lost our keys, means we have to break things to get in. This is not the ideal way to enter into what is ours, or to obtain what we know is ours. Dreams such as this usually warns of damage we will need to repair later, because of our own impatience, negligence, or lack of waiting on God, for the keys HE has in HIS possession that unlocks our destiny in HIS time. Broken Windows In Dreams. (NeWinePouring.com)
Dear dreamer in your case your windows are closed (in the natural) to regulate the house temp with an AC and to keep the dust out. The Lord may be warning you that your best intentions to keep a handle on the atmospheric conditions of your home has a challenge. Such as a breach in the wall, that appears to be specific regarding your child, because this is happening in her room. The fact that it is a rip in her window screen reveals more detail.
The good God that He is, helps us be better than what is humanly possible, with our children, because He loves them so. When we partner with God, our best becomes better. For the Spirit of God leads us and guides us in all truth when we put our trust in Him.
If I had a dream like this, I myself, would never underestimate a dream’s ability to have a natural and real application for safety concerns. God can warn us of a tear in our screen to keep the insects out, or identify that one has entered the home. More than likely though, there is (rather) a symbolic application because you said you keep your windows closed. In summing it up: Some kind of frame work for safety you rely upon for your child, has an opening in it.
The symbolic application is that no matter how hard we try, as parents, sometimes a breach will occur in filters that we want in place for our children. Dreams serve to REVEAL what is hidden to us.
So the Holy Spirit is using the dream to reveal a situation you are not aware of. It could be a nanny not being careful of her phone conversations in front of your child, the words of a relative or even a teacher. Unruly people and their cat fights. Or the home computer’s kid-settings need to be re-set for your child. It could be a television program for pre-schoolers, or a book, that may not be up to par with your values. It could be as simple as two cats prowling and growling outside your child’s window, that is planting a fear seed in her soul. A spiritual opportunist finding opportunity. We may never discover what the dream was exposing specifically-
But, we can rest assured asking the Father for wisdom is the beginning of a good outcome and resolve. This night vision is showing you that the room seems secure, but her safety filters in seeing and hearing is not. For screens in the window allow for seeing and hearing, the breach allows for more than what was intended to come through. A wall is to keep out an army. A screen is to keep out more subtle intruders. Because we can see and hear through a screen on a window, and even feel the airflow coming through the screen, the intruder falls into the catagory of seeing and hearing the wrong things, that have a spiritual impact. If the five year old is sleeping in this scenario, you are being awakened to subliminal exposures your child may not be conscious of.
WHAT TO DO
As I stated before start by simply checking your windows, but be aware of other filters (spiritual and social protections) that should be in place. Pray and then prayerfully investigate. Ask God to show you where the “torn screen” or “breach in your filters” are. I have many testimonies of the Father outing the foxes BEFORE they find the holes in the fence. So be encouraged! God can show you where to reinforce the fence, or give you peace knowing the child is covered in prayer.
Philippians 4:6-8 Praying Over Concerning Dreams
Don’t fret or worry; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Mathew 11:18-20 Authority in Christ Against Spiritual Darkness
And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
Luke 11:5:13 Seeking Answers
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask?
A Dream interpretation should be subjected to the counsel 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. So sharing my response with Christian counsel would be the next thing to do in order to complete this process. With God’s best for you at heart. – deana barnes
