How Kingdom Comes

The problem with “on earth as it is in heaven” is the warfare in between. Knowing our authority, the weapons of our warfare, and the promise of God, secures heaven’s dominion to this earthly plane. Hear about the vision that drove this home for Deana as she shares a prophecy, as well.

God gave us the sword of His word, and King Jesus’s personal armor (that HE himself forged) to carry out mandates of our God. On earth as it is in heaven.

Listen to this podcast for a prophetic word that will re-ignite those who have worked long in the field of this end time harvest.

On A Waterless Sea

Warning Dream: Treating Holy Things As Common. Call A solemn Assembly. Teach Them Fear. Sin of Insolence. Mishandling the Word of Life.

Job 28:28 And to man He said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.'”

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction

America, full of the knowledge of God. But do we know HIM?

I had a dream. A guy in his 30’s with an influence over young people was sitting with what seemed like a team of peers getting ready to do bible study ministry. They actually had those backward priest collars on, but the collars were broken at the voice box, or Adam’s apple. To be blunt they all had a frat brat air about them. Sorry, don’t know a better description. Any way, young sort of prideful theologians. I walked up to them in the corner of a very large library, in a place that was part of a vast open mall of sanctuaries, and auditoriums; a lot going on at once, like every Christian I ever knew was in this *mall, representing Christian America. About the time I approached this frat pack of theologians, I heard the lead guy say, “Yea, we’re going to go speak in tongues.” I walked up to him and said, “Cool, so you’re Spirit filled?”

Act 2:4 And they were all FILLED with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Speaking in tongues is evidence of being Spirit filled.)

I caught him off guard. He said, “Uhh no”, and looked around at his friends like where did SHE come from? Which I get all the time; anyway, to the young indignant one I said, “Well do you want to be Spirit filled?” He got real nervous and started looking around at his friends like, this woman is crazy! I’m thinking, what religious universe have these people been locked up in? I told him, “You can joke around about a lot of things, and maybe get away with making fun of people who pray in tongues, but you should never allow yourself or anyone else around you, to joke about the Holy Ghost.”

Hebrews 10: 29
Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, shall be thought them worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, by which he was sanctified, a common thing, and has done insult unto the Spirit of grace?

At that moment I heard a crack of thunder and could see a huge flat screen TV showing a weather report of the United States.

I saw clusters of storms light up the area above various cities and states across the US. The map was green like spring but this dream came last fall. Washington State really lit up in the western part of it, I thought of the Seattle area. The other cluster of storms that stood out seemed to be in the lower Missouri, Mississippi region. They lit up more than other places lighting up all over the map, they seemed like prolonged electrical storms.

America is too common with Holy things!

I thought the young men to be lacking in the fear of the Lord. If we as Christian ministers were priests of the old testament altar, many of us would be dragged out by the feet with shepherds crooks. Embolden to blaspheme, tossing out railing accusations against dignitaries, mocking the Holy Ghost, mocking His servants, mocking His prophets; being scornful, and disrespectful. Christians acting despicably calling themselves ambassadors of Christ, but they are brutish, narcissistic, embellishers, clouds with out rain; throwing their titles around for entitlements. And their degrees, as if that is what qualifies them for the work of the ministry. When being qualified comes, only, by setting ourselves apart, in seeking the face of God. surrendering to obedience; Relying upon His ability, having nothing to do with our own. Living a Godly life, hating even the garment, (the outer accessories) of Christian life, spotted by the flesh. I thought of all the churches who have clerics that wear the white band, to set themselves apart, but these were not set apart in their speech, revealing the condition of their heart. The white band broken at their voice box.

Prayers of repentance and judgments in the land.

I don’t believe some of these places, I saw in the dream, are more wicked than others, but they are more susceptible to trouble than others, when wickedness in the Church reaches its tipping point. While others have judgements poised against them, it is up to us to pray!

Narrow the way.

In our world, moods, opinions, and attitudes, can shift in waves over night. Because we are bonded together by social media and the internet. A story or news item portrayed in just the right way, can sway the masses, left or right. We can glorify God one moment, and grieve the Holy Spirit in the very next breath, by agreeing with false portrayals of what is suppose to be truth! Insolence, and the lack of the fear of the Lord, and the mishandling of sacred things, have moved Christian America to lean the wrong way. Being to common and careless with the mysteries and treasures of the king dom, joking foolishly, the bible calls it foolish jesting.

Straight is the gate and narrow is the way, that leads to life and few there will be who find it. Leaning left or leaning right is not the way! Wide is the gate and broad is the path to destruction and many there’ll be who will find it. Mathew 7:13-14 HIS way, in all things, is the hidden path found through Christ. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life!

When the Holy Spirit lifts.

Where HE is not, there goes the voice of warning, there goes all the gifts of perception, and fore-site, there goes the voice of one calling in the wilderness, making straight the paths of the Lord, there goes the ones holding back judgments.

The Lord has departed.

When He departs He takes the lamp stands with Him. His sheep know His voice they will go out and be lead into green pastures. It is one of the most silent mass moves of God on earth, when sheep are lead out. They are taken out of places where Christ in them, manifesting, is rejected. The good shepherd leads them out like sheep! You could gaze at a hill covered with them. Bend down and tie your shoe laces, zip your coat, and look back up, just to see that the sheep on a distant hill are no where to be seen. The remnant that is attached to (no thing or place but Him) go where he goes. They are always the ones found with Him. Seemingly, vanished in thin air, when He moves them out. When Jesus removes His lamp stands from a church, His people in that place that know Him, know when the SHEPHERD’S voice is gone, Jesus said, “My sheep know my voice and a stranger they will not follow.” His mercy never fails and no matter what or where- whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. He remains a very present help in times of trouble as long as we have breath. We need Him now more than ever, and we need the blessed Holy Spirit of comfort and truth. The Christian mall of America needs to understand the Spirit of the Fear Of the Lord. Let us who pray, do so.

Isaiah 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge, and the spirit of the fear of the Lord.

Call a Solemn Assembly!

The young men in the dream were found in the library. Ever learning and never coming to the truth. All the books in that library didn’t bring them to the truth they needed, to live a blameless life. And brazen they were on how they handled God’s Holy Spirit and His Saints. Would that these young theologians would be as the twelve, Paul met in Ephesus! Teachable!

Paul was received by a group of disciples that only knew John’s baptism!

Acts 19:1-7

And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, AND prophesied. And all the men were about twelve.

John’s Baptism: Water baptism is a baptism of repentance, otherwise described as John’s baptism. Until this day many are only baptised in this baptism, rejecting the fact there is another baptism often received by the laying on of hands. It’s the baptism John referred to as the baptism of the Holy Ghost and of Fire, that Yeshuah baptizes us with.

Even during Paul’s ministry years after the Ascension of Christ, there were still believers in John’s baptism only; as there are today.

In water baptism we are publicly repenting of our sins, as a witness to all that we are dead, buried, and raised, with Christ, as a new creation; old things are passed away and behold all things becoming new. As we go down and come up in the water, we display that. Confessing our sins is the beginning of our journey with Jesus; if we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sin, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. The water depicts that cleansing, as well. Coming up from the water sheds light on the understanding that we are a new creation, a new man or woman; therefore, we should live our lives as dead to our old nature. This is called repentance which simply means to ” turn away from.” Water baptism is not what saves us but it is what describes our salvation, and is a public testimony of our decision for Christ, following HIS example in water baptism. As we look forward to the redemption of our bodies, in the hope of the resurrection. Still, new testament saints called it John’s baptism.

Life in the letter only, is like having a sailboat in a waterless sea.

Jesus’ Baptism

Jesus’s baptism is a Spirit and fire baptism, received by the laying on of hands. Or by faith in believing upon Jesus while hearing God’s word. It is an event that is not silent or without demonstration, in other words you WILL KNOW when you become Spirit filled! We will see that in the passage below. The Holy Spirit baptism can come before water, and even during water baptism. But, not before repentance or a decision to follow Christ, is made. It is an event we yield to in receiving. The Holy Spirit and fire baptism gives us what we need to walk in power, be purified, and taught in truth; have supernatural comfort in separations and sorrows; and a supernatural boldness to testify in the face of persecutions. The Holy Spirit disperses supernatural giftings among the saints, beginning with unknown tongues and branching out from there. If the church can’t get tongues right, the least of all the gifts, how will they get anything else right? As it is with our own tongue in conversation. Tame that tongue that sets off the fires of hell, and everything else falls into line. Get the gift of tongues operating fluently in God’s divine order, let that ministry rise up, and unbelievers will come into belief, for the scripture says that the gift of tongues is for the unbeliever. We can be believers in unbelief over many things. Tongues interpreted is a sign. Let the heavenly language flow! Building up your most Holy faith by praying in the Holy Ghost! As Paul said, “I will pray in the Spirit, and I will pray in my understanding, also.” All that believe the Holy Spirit comes with out demonstration, have very little demonstration of power in their own life. It is the same for those that believe it is God’s will for them to be sick. Or that God does not always desire his people to be well. It never seems to be God’s will for them to be well, in their lives. However, those who believe He wants his people to be healthy, and whole, have more instances of healing in their lives. Yet, after all we have been given to know Christ and Him crucified, and the great benefits of our salvation, many are still not advancing past these elementary teachings of faith.

Let us go on from the elementary teachings of baptism, and the laying on of hands …

Getting it right and moving on,

Hebrews 6:1-2 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

Like the theologians in my dream, and even those in Pentecost – many Spirit filled Churches are stuck on tongues. So stuck they don’t even want them to manifest any more. This is a sure sign of immaturity in the church, as much as it is when people are not understanding gifts of the Holy Spirit of God, or the fivefold ministry. When an assembly is too focused (against or for) manifestations of the Spirit, they are weak and immature. For these things are given to supply every need, that each part supplies. If no one understands the ministries set among us as it is written in Ephesians 4, to equip the saints; we will not grow up into the head, nor shall we ever be unified. For it is clearly written in this passage that this is what these ministries do. If all you have in your assembly is a pastor, then run!! You will never mature in Christ! For this same reason we can never expect to be unified with any who call themselves Christian, that rejects the baptism of the Lord Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit and with fire. Of them who say the apostles and prophets are no more. For it takes these anointings along with the rest, to accomplish unification, by equipping the saints, who can then mature into the head!

Various denominations can intermingle all day long, but all they usually do is agree to disagree about who, mainly? The person and endtimes ministry of the Holy Ghost! The only way a people can come together in Christ of one mind, is by the power of the Holy Spirit! I will never agree NOT to ask any one, if they have received the Holy Spirit since they have believed, in order to keep the peace! I am not ashamed of Him, the Holy Spirit of God.

Churches get stuck on the next level after the in filling, and I mean many!

If all we can do is focus on what our parts are, and what they can do, such as the function of the hand and foot … How can we focus on just being whole and useable unto God? Books and DVDs, podcasts and websites, classes, upon classes, all about being what you are called to be, rather than doing what you are called to do!

Not only that, but teaching people there is not a Spirit fire baptism is more than just an error. It is encouraging the saints of God to obey the great commission with out being endued with POWER from on High. Jesus said, wait until you are! Any minister that calls themself a follower of Christ, that rejects the baptism of the Holy Spirit is ill equipped, I don’t care how many certificates and honorary doctorates they have! Water and Spirit baptism are separate experiences that can happen in rapid succession, but the Holy Spirit ALWAYS comes after a decision for Christ is made. Whether it’s a matter of seconds or days. Seek all He has for you! Be faithful in the little things, God will trust to you more! When trouble comes will Christian America be able to weather storms with out the help of the comforter and the Spirit of truth? Without being endued with power from on high? Will teachings against the work of the Holy Spirit of God prevail in America? Will the youth of tomorrow have no need for Him? But, actually cross the line treating Him and God’s servants with contempt? Pray it won’t be so. Warn them. Warn them. Warn them.

Acts 10:30- AKJV

The Gentiles Hear the Good News

Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that fears him, and works righteousness, is accepted by him. The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) That word, I say, you know, … How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly; Not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of the quick and dead. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whoever believes in him shall receive remission of sins.

How much more do we need the same Holy Ghost and power Jesus walked in!

(Joel 2:28-32; John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Acts 2:1-13; Acts 19:1-7)

While Peter yet spoke these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

What Malls mean In dreams.

*malls in dreams (when symbolic), speak to a trending/collection of thought, belief, or popular world views, and/ or attitudes of the times; of a town, city, democracy, community, region, or nation- depending on the location of the mall. A conglomeration of occupations, thought, and/or practices; all under one roof. Malls assemble commonality of tastes, among a variety of goods, and services; and reflect acceptable norms of society. Right wrong or indifferent. Depending on the nature of a mood or message being relayed. In this dream Christendom in America was being reflected in all the ways it exists. The focus was upon the up and coming bible ministers, full of book training, embarking upon their ministry, flanked with arrogance and hostility towards the Holy Spirit. In a time where the wisdom of God is counted as foolishness to men, and the foolishness of men, is wisdom unto God. They are ever learning and never coming to the truth. Under the same roof of us all! A powerless gospel puts God’s people in peril when storms rise! With out the Spirit of God, and the Spirit of the fear of the Lord, bible study training is a sailboat with no wind, in a waterless sea.

Note: A specific mall known by the dreamer may very well just mean, that mall. For dream coaching click on the CONTACT US! Link for questions.

Prophecy For 2018 And Year End Review

 
State Of Exposure prophecy of 2017.

All most one year ago, posted here on my WordPress blog, was a prophetic word for 2017. The original post is linked below. I would say it certainly has come to pass. State of Exposure is now (in- retrospect) probably the best way to describe what our country has been going through for the last year. I would venture to say with more to come! Exposures and disclosures. The “me too” movement as of late, sweeping across the nation, contributing to a good measure of what was described as

 A spirit of trembling of what would be exposed through the night, while the nations sleeps. Jan. 4, 2017

While the nation is still reeling with the kind of disclosures and exposures that have ended many lifelong careers, and probably a few relationships, so we are just scratching the surface with deeper revelations to come.

Nevertheless, Americans have been more concerned about their misconduct being called out in the workplace, than they are of the menace of North Korea. And the treasonist acts of public officials in our government. Still the word “a spirit of trembling” comes to mind as long as Kim Jong-un, terrorists, and Deep State exists, and by no means not for just Americans. Another word mentioned that was not what you would expect but still makes a profound statement, and that was the fainting Judge prophecy, that you will see in State of Exposure in regard to conviction. Now, at the time I had no idea who that would be, and I have no desire to be a prophet for show business events, but this “happening” is a word in itself, calling a nation out of its idolatry! After googling “fainting judge” it turns out the producer and Judge of the talent show “American Idol” had a life altering event take place after “fainting” in October of this year, prompting the famous judge of “American Idol” to quote: “Change his life style for the sake of his son.”

Is conviction going to prompt us to turn from an American life of raising idols, and rather change our lifestyles to raising our sons? I don’t think I need to go into great detail on how prophetic this Fainting Judge word is. Just read the prophecy. And remember the Spirit of Elijah is doing an end-time work.

The Spirit of Elijah is sent out in the latter days to turn the fathers heart towards their sons .. Mal 4:4-6

So anyway 2018 will be known as the year of aftermath, and consequence, and the notion of cause and effect. A reaping of what has been sowed in the way of sowing to the wind. The life altering events that have taken hold of many in this nation, for reasons beyond exposure but in relation to storms that exposure seems to whip up- just as real storms exist, we have aftermath to contend with in either circumstance. Real or man made. Deserved or undeserved. As 2017 was called the Year of Exposure, so 2018 is going to be known as a year of consequence. While more storms are coming, with their own post traumatic stress to navigate through. Those who trust God unwaveringly, will emerge upon a track of renewal.

This cause and effect is cycling through and manifesting into returns and renewals. For those who have their priorities right and are not the faint of heart.

Remembering in all thing that Jesus is our solid ground. There is no other rock to stand on.

From Still Waters to Eagles Wings

imageSurrender yourself to me in Holy abandonment, says the Lord. Let go of those things you have embraced that centered you- but, are not of me. These built-in stabilizers are old garments sown to the new, and many works are in a perpetual ripping, says the Lord of Hosts, who leads HIS people beside still waters to restore their soul. From this place of an organic gathering they mount up with wings as eagles, they run, without being wearied, they walk and not faint. Nothing more than the still waters is needed to find renewal, refreshing, and revival. This is simply drinking from the waters that I have led you to, what ever landscape you find them in. I am the still waters of your soul. Drink of me, no matter where you are. For there I am, also. Is it not in that place where my image is most clear, reflecting as a mirror? Daily you shall see yourself  as I  do in the light of the Son, if you take the time to do so. Lean in and drink of me as it were from still waters, and I will restore your soul. One day, my armor clad ones- you will learn nor teach war no more! You will lead the nations in exchanging their war equipment for tools of the harvest. Where a country will no longer fall into eternity with out CHRIST, IN ONE HOUR. Rather, entire nations will be harvested for the Kingdom of God. Masses of people once reeling in wars and famines will be fed, in one hour. They will beat their spears into pruning hooks, their swords into plows shears, nation will not rise against nation, nor will they learn war any more. The glory of the latter house will be greater than the former. Trust in this saying, you will see. The intervals of rest and journey, will bring you there. Resting in my provision, resting in my presence. Journeying in my way, progressing in my kingdom. This with demonstration and in power. 

Isaiah 2:4
New International Version
He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.

Watchman What of The Night?

1 Thessalonians 5

New King James Version (NKJV)

imageBut concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.

 Quench not the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt, test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.

 In a dream, I was in a market place and went to take an elevator to another floor. When the doors opened I began to step in but was shocked to discover there was nothing but an open shaft with no carriage. The first thing I thought of was the people who would not be careful to look, as I did before stepping in. I went back to those I was standing with, previously, and warned them of the elevator. We all stood and watched again as the elevator doors opened wide, this time the carriage was misaligned and tipped leaving a gap wide enough to fall through. It wasn’t enough to let those around me know. Now, I’m on a mission to let all the occupants in the market know there is a dangerous mode of transportation in this building.  (There is a way that seems right to a man but the end of that way is death.) I decided that by going to a central desk in the building, I could better broadcast the dangerous condition of the elevator.

They Shall Cry, “Peace and Safety!”

My task seemed cumbersome, I had to go through a lot of effort just to get to the desk, while I was concerned I wouldn’t get the message out in time, I hoped no one would plunge down the broken elevator shaft. Finally, I get to the desk where there was a line. I realize I’m going to have to push past the others to get out my warning hoping they will understand once they hear the reason. Now that I’m at the counter, I realize I just need to shout for every one to hear, so help could be dispatched more promptly, and a life may be saved. But, as I shouted with concern and emotion in my voice, a Christian woman walked up to me, who had nothing to do with the desk, and postured herself to “handle the situation” by commanding peace over me. Somehow it stripped the message of its urgency and diverted its focus to the woman. I knew what she did was out of order, and stemmed from her own root of fear, and warped idea of what the word-  for edification, really entailsShe could have waited on the Lord and stood back in observation, staying neutral; ironically, her attempt to put forth a false sense of security, while dowsing the impact of the voice of alarm immediately aligned herself in judgment of those watchman who would NOT sound the alarm to warn the city when the enemy comes.  This one should have remembered the scriptures:  “… despise not prophecy and forbid it not. Let the prophet  speak and the others stand and judge.  We ought not to be quick to meddle with the dealings of God, regarding the souls He has made.  The times we are living in warrant GRAVITY.  How we speak to our four year old child in the yard, verses how we speak to them attempting to dart across a busy parking lot, would vary in the natural, so also, in these end-times depending on the cost of failure, for the WORD of the  LORD to be unheard or not acted upon.

He that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God.

For those of you who have experienced this odd attempt to douse and flatten the spirit of the voice of alarm, in God’s mission to save lives, know that your responsibility is yet not lifted. For if they HEAR, and do not respond, you’re not responsible, but if the warning is dampened or hampered it is still for the watchmen to press on and persevere. Remember, many of the prophets were threatened, beaten, incarcerated, driven out of the region for their sound of alarm. That spirit that declares peace in lieu  of warning is in bed with Anti Christ, false prophets, Jezebel, Ahab, the foolish servant, and if nothing more is a FEAR FILLED Christian who does not understand that the mercy of God is present in warning, correction, and rebuke, and all are needed in strengthening,  and for the edification of the saints. The warning of pending judgements have been used as a tool for evangelism that moves many to repentance. It is hard to understand that people are actually believing a lie, these days, that prophetic words that sound an alarm are not of God because they promote fear. Sometimes fear is healthy, like how we fear fire. Like how we are suppose to fear God. the full measure of the Spirit includes the seven, one of those is the Spirit of Fear. The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord is here to rest upon His anointed, as is the Spirit of the Lord in power and might.

Mercy is Love in Action

It is mercy that exposes our hearts, so that we will not die in our sin. Pronouncements of judgements with out an opportunity to repent, or instructions to do so, is not God’s mode of operation. In the new testament, in the acts of the saints, we see occasions where confrontations occur and hard words are spoken. We have the account of Peters dealing with Ananias and Sapphira who lied to the Holy Ghost, and Simon, who thought to purchase Him. These dealings are no less critical now than they were in the beginning. Nothing has changed to alter them. The Spirit of The Lord still speaks to the church, HIS lamp stands in various places, and circumstances, are still in danger of being removed. This is why I warn those now who would posture themselves over words of the prophets of God, to dilute their impact, or divert their intent. If you succeed and lives are lost, the blood will be on your hands. Warnings, in their very nature are acts of mercy, pronounced judgments with instructions for repentance the same, we see this in Acts 8:20.

Acts 8:20-25
New International Version (NIV)

Peter answered: “May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God. Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart. For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin. “Then Simon answered, “Pray to the Lord for me so that nothing you have said may happen to me.”After they had further proclaimed the word of the Lord and testified about Jesus, Peter and John returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel in many Samaritan village.

We who are of the day are not appointed to wrath, yet, we are reminded to stay awake and alert. To watch and pray. Who does this? Is it not the watchmen of the night who sound the alarm? What would become of those who cried peace in the day of his wrath?

In The Unforeseen

imageI agree with the words that many have shared recently regarding sudden changes, and the days of SUDDENLIES, and wanted to re-iterate this word regarding (unforeseen) change of plans, and what God wants to pull out of us in those times. The cause may be weather, unrest, opened, or closed doors; or, even policy changes. What we have to look forward to is the power of God who is always present in our lives, and has prepared us for the unexpected. In these times spontaneity pulls out raw giftings before orthodoxy can dilute them. Observe what gifts and abilities come out of you, and then refine, and polish them in their TRUE form.

Often, in what is called a crises, or conflict, up and coming leadership begins to take form around us, and those marked to serve in the forefront of the days before us will emerge. So also, the CHURCH, in this world. This is that which we should look for in the gathering and the scattering of eagles. Unexpected intrusions cause them to forsake their feasting-  and for the sake of safety, and for seeing, they take to the skies and re-scan the terrain, this brings to the body a renewed vision appropriate for the day.  SO, UNEXPECTED departures, take offs, delays, separations, even divisions (in Christ) will only work for God’s glory, as we remain in Him. This is why we CLING to CHRIST in faith, and not restrain one another in doubt and unbelief in these moments of great stirrings.

The Winnowed and The Pruned

                                                                       The WINNOWED AND THE PRUNED
A prophetic message to the Body of Christ to prepare us for a season of fruitfulness that comes after the season of pruning. We cannot miss our appointments that will prepare us, and posture us to not only bear the storms ahead, but to be a living witness of the POWER and GRACE of GOD in the days to come- while AMERICA’S years of sowing into the wind, reaps its DAYS OF THE WHIRLWIND HARVEST.”I woke up into a vision the other morning. The Lord showed me a pruned tree and a book, the book was blue green with gold lettering on it. I recognized the book as being one of the history of the Hebrew Nation, but now the title of the book is different; the title is much longer and some how I know it also pertains to the CHURCH. The PRUNED tree is silhouetted against a blazing red sky at sun down, next to it the book is handed to me. I’m able to make out two words in the long title- in gold lettering I see these words-THE WINNOWED.”

When Devils Cry Out

The most powerful and affective way to fight spiritual battles is to declare the Word of God over our lives, and focus on the Good news of His Word, and who we are in Him. Not only because we need to hear it (faith comes not, but by hearing, and hearing the word of God …) but because the devil is a trespasser, and he operates illegally, he will surely take advantage of any double mindedness or vocalizations that fortifies the problem and not the answer. This is how that trespasser gets a foothold, to work where he really has no right. Life and death are in the power of the tongue, as the scripture says. A faith filled  report speaks of  the fruit  and its availability.

The evil report  focuses on the giants  in the land, that cannot be overcome. It is   the difference between obtaining the promises of the covenant, or wandering in the wilderness. If doubt and unbelief comes out of our mouth, then out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks … This is why we search the scriptures to know Christ, to understand what His will is for our lives, and to know the character of God. This is so  we will not align ourselves with the enemies lies. It is imperative that we fill our heart with God’s promise, so that when we are under pressure, his word will come out of us.

 Sins, Sicknesses, and Bondage.

I think we can get into bondage if we are constantly probing around trying to figure out some deep seeded reason for this or that, when all we need to do is tell the devil, and generational curses the buck stops here! We can declare: I am in covenant! I am a new creature! The failure of my fathers  will not have this generation! Why stumble around in the basement rummaging through old suitcases for an answer, when we can stand on the roof top, and proclaim HIs Word over are lives, and to the next generation? It just seems to be a better way. Believe me, I have witnessed the endless rummaging.  No sooner do they rid themselves of one thing, than they are after another. Have you ever met someone who has gone to counseling and therapy for years? Meetings after meetings for their addictions for decades and never seem to get free?  Dwelling on the problem can never be the answer. We can sweep the basement clean, addressing these things by name, but if we do not fill it up with the LIGHT of Gods word, (according to scripture) the unclean spirits will come back to the house they came out of with seven more stronger.  Mathew 12:43-45 We must live in the Word of God, and speak its truth into our lives, this dispels the darkness  and fills us with light  from the words of our mouth.

2 Corinthians 5:16-18 (New King James Version)

Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation …

Isaiah 43:18 (New King James Version)
“ Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth. Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness. And rivers in the desert.

(He replaces our wilderness and desert with  RIVERS!) Out of YOUR belly shall flow RIVERS of living water!

Romans 6:4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.

Like I have stated before the devil is a trespasser, his operations are illegal. If we let him, he will pass through generational lines. He will pass through them even if we are born again, because we have to assert our rights as believers. We must take possession of the promises of God full throttle, as the children of Israel had to take possession of Canaan. It is the way we deal with the enemy, and generational devils (better known as familiar spirits) that revisit family lines. These unclean spirits seek habitation to manipulate human weakness, error, and infirmity, in a (known to the familiars)  family tree. Even Godly family lines can carry on mind sets from one generation to the other, that  limit growth in the kingdom. Remember, the traditions of men can make the word of God of no effect, even good practices can hinder, when they are not God ordained direction for that season, or situation.

Mark 7:9 -13  New International Version (©1984) And he said to them: “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions! … Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. 

What we have seen with our eyes and  touched with our own hands … the Word of LIFE!

Generational sin has left its carnage in the jails, prisons, and streets, where we have gone to minister. Men and women  incarcerated, whose parents were incarcerated, or laden with addictions, are carrying on the family tradition. Many of these people have suffered abandonment, rejection, attempts of suicide, and  mental illnesses; that have not only plagued them, but their  family lines as well. When you bring a deliverance ministry into those places with a (a zero tolerance for demonic activity)  there is more manifestation because the devil knows Jesus is coming to cast them out. Ministries who are assertive against demonic oppression, manifestations, and control, do not have to go looking for devils to cast out. “They” will cry out when the deliverer comes who is Christ in us. If you are not known in the spirit realm to cast out devils, then the unclean spirits have nothing to fear when you are around. It is when they learn of your reputation as being one that will drive them out, that bazaar circumstances will begin to present themselves around you. Jesus said, the works that I do you shall do also … and greater works shall you do because I go to my Father.

We know that devils cried out when  Jesus walked this earth, and they still do to-day, if you will only believe in his name, and discern when they manifest. Often they will play on your ignorance and comply with anything that does not bring attention to the fact that they are there, if they know it is not your habit to deal with them. In many of our churches today, they actually cater to the enemy, letting devils manifest and disrupt  services by odd behavior and distraction, yet the leadership does nothing about it.   On the other hand if you do as Christ did when he ministered in the cities, your reputation will ferret them out, even more so your discernment.  Jesus himself said, “these signs shall follow them that believe, in my name they will cast out devils … Mark 16:17.

Preaching on the blood will get a reaction.
Once when I was preaching on the blood of Jesus in an institution, a man who had lived in a  catatonic state, began to roll his wheel chair from the back of the room towards me shoving through every one in  his way until he was able to ram himself  into the speaking podium I was standing behind. He rolled back and came at me again with eyes glazed over  in a fixed stare.  We bound the unclean spirit that was manifesting through this man, finding out later that he would reach out and grab hold of some of the patients, and not let go. His eyes and facial expression remaining in a fixed state. After we prayed for him this violent and unusual behavior stopped. Our team gained a reputation for solving some of the odd  incidences that would take place in this institution, and we began to be sought out by the nursing staff for our help. We were asked to pray through the rooms vacated by some of those who had died.  The nursing staff  began to notice insanity was acting like a virus, when patients would begin to parrot  vocal similarities, of a tormented person, who had died in the room before them.  They would cry out the same words, or act out non verbal expressions. The nurses finally began to realize that this was demonic activity. Thankfully, God had positioned people with discernment to work there.

Your reputation will proceed you.
In one particular visit  in this facility, we walked into the building from the west wing and heard a patient crying out our family name on the east wing. No one could have possibly known we were there.  As we passed the nurses station one of  them hurried over and pulled us to the side, she was upset and asked us if we believed in  demon possession. We explained to her that we have been commissioned by Jesus Christ to go into all the world, and preach the Gospel, casting out devils was part of that ministry, as well as laying hands on the sick. She began to explain to us that one of the patients was demonstrating very curious  behavior, when nurses would check on her she would seem to have expired. The nurses would run out and signal a code-blue only to find her sitting on the edge of her bed laughing with a hideous, animated laughter. They could not understand how she was controlling her vital signs, appearing to be near death. The nurse said she was having a hard time getting other nurses to check on her. She asked us if we could do something, we had already met her in our other visits and had already suspected that she was heavily tormented.

When we entered into her room she immediately reached over to the draperies on the window and attempted to climb up the draperies. This frail woman in her 80′s probably weighed a 100 lbs. Her strength was beyond natural, as she began to lift herself up the curtains. The nurses helped her back down, rolled her into the middle of the room and hurried out the door leaving me alone with this poor woman. As I looked into her eyes I saw the demon  manifest a shadow face over her own, looking like an extreme insomniac version of herself. I said, “You have not been able to sleep have you?” With a pitiful whisper she said,” No I haven’t. I said “You have been up for days haven’t you?” She said, “Yes, I have”.  I said,” Well, that is going to stop now, and then I spoke to the unclean spirit and commanded it to  leave her now in the name of Jesus Christ.  Immediately, I felt peace come into the room. It was that simple. This woman who was once a pastor’s wife that had pastored a church in that city many years earlier, was now able to pray with me in the name of Jesus, I left her alone thanking Him. Few deliverances  have been that simple but in this instance it was.

Interestingly enough, this was my last visit there. I was about to take a maternity leave off from the ministry to focus on our new baby who was due in just days. One year later we walked into the institution, went to the nurses desk and the first person I asked about was Mrs. ______    the nurse said, “Oh well, you must have walked right past her she is over there”. I turned around and saw the same woman we encountered a year earlier. She literally looked 10 years younger! Not only was her hair done up, but she was wearing a nice dress sitting  quietly and composed. She did not recognize me but she seemed very peaceful and content. We saw lives changed in forgotten places, because we dared to believe in the full gospel of Jesus Christ. To often ministries go into these places just to comfort. Of course comfort is a big part, but that is not the full package deal. Go ye!  If you can’t go then support some one who can it is just the same! But make sure they are bringing that great commission of Christ to the lost, that they be utterly healed, set free, and filled with His Holy Spirit.

First bind the strongman then spoil his goods.
We have seen revival break out in prison, to the extent that guards were set inside the doors of the sanctuary of the chapel; an unusual sight being that the chapel would normally be occupied by a handful of inmates with one guard watching through the window. We were not afraid to interrupt the meetings with prayer when we felt opposition in the atmosphere. In most services ministers, usually, just plow through the hard ground and try to eek out a formidable attraction. We learned to stop and take authority over that kind of atmosphere, and would nail it all night if we had to. After all it is not a performance we were there for. Our whole reason for being in these places was to fulfill a mandate to reach the lost. If you have to stop and war to do that, well, that just comes with the territory.

If we were faithful not to bow under the atmosphere, God was faithful to show up every time with a move of His Spirit, where people were falling out, getting healed, and filled, right where they were sitting. Many times, when we stopped the service to pray we would take authority over witchcraft, and all most every time we would have a runner that would flee the sanctuary. This became a signature move of the Holy Spirit in our meetings. A sign to those in the jails, and prisons that the power of God was present, normally those who would run out were exercising controlling powers over other inmates and was there to keep tabs on them. You see, a lot of people would be upset that two or three people would jump up and run out of their service. But I fully enjoyed the wolves who have no wish to do anything but devour the sheep, were being chased out of the flock. That proved to me that the Good Shepherd was in charge. People will do one of two things in the presence of the anointing. They will run to it, or run a way from it. It is when they run to it that their devils cry out. The unclean spirits are suddenly brought into the presence of almighty God and they start acting up, because the heart and the will of the one they are tormenting, is turning themselves over to God.

Walking in the Glory
To be affective in what God has called us to do is to command that kind of atmosphere around us in the Spirit, where the glory of the Lord is so strong that spiritual awakenings are able to rock the unseen world every where our feet tread the ground. We should have a zero tolerance for demonic activity all the time. We should pull upon heaven until it fills our world with God’s Glory. Living this way is definitely not boring. Something as simple as going to a restaurant, or walking downtown, will draw out the desperation of those who need deliverance. The less there is of us the more there is of Him. Christ will be recognized! And the devil will be exposed!

No harm will come to you.
Years ago we were having meetings in our home,(and this was during the time when we had just begun homeschooling our children) there was a new face in the crowd she was a rather large woman and very severe looking. I felt a check in my spirit regarding her. I was told that she worked for the state in child protection services, by a friend, and as the meeting went on, I noticed that she was not participating with the rest of us in worship and just didn’t seem to act like one of the sheep. I began to wonder if she was taking advantage of our open home, to sniff around over this home schooling thing, and I felt uneasy. We continued to worship the Lord, and I lifted it all up to God, and pretty soon the glory began to fill our living room as we all became lost in worship. The next thing I know, I hear this tremendous thud hit the ground, and an awful groan. I opened my eyes and this woman who was in the back of the room, was now in the front of the room just inches away from me. She was on her hands and knees, and moaning. She stood there like that for the rest of the night shaking, sobbing, moaning, and crying. A couple of sisters continued to pray with her until the end of the service. They helped her out the door and to her car. I never saw her again, and until this day I do not know her story. Who was she? Why was she there? All I know is that God had his way that night. Not man. Not devils.

… and He escaped out from the midst of them … 
More recently, I walked into the post office to check our mail box when all of a sudden I was ran up upon by a man and a deranged woman in her 30′s, she was tall, and had her hair in dreadlocks. There was absolutely no one around, I tried to keep it cool and walked them out towards my car, to get out in the open. I briefly spoke to the man and bound unclean spirits off of him and then blessed him, he immediately left on down the sidewalk. The woman approached me after him, as she stared me down with a murderous gaze, nose to nose, she asked me for the exact change I had in my hands. How did she know how much money I had in my hand? I was dealing with a powerful spirit, and began to pray in tongues, she began to chant in gibberish. The spirit of the lord moved me to raise my hand level to her forehead and say (with authority) “Peace be still in the name of Jesus Christ”. When I did this, peace filled  the space between her and myself, she dropped her head and shoulders, closed her eyes and let out a sigh. The woman then put her hands in a praying position as a “hush” over her lips. For several seconds she seem to come into composure, and back to her senses, turned around and moved away like any normal woman walking down the street. We must be instant in season and out, always. Only God knows what we may encounter on any given day.

Cut  the chase!
It saddened me to go to a convention of world renown ministries, and see the people there unable to handle a demon possession that the deacons carried out of the sanctuary and into the lobby. I’m not saying it was any one of these ministers, but rather those that were  in charge of the altar work. The first mistake they made was taking her out of the presence of the anointing. Unless the altar workers are able to carry over the same anointing that exposed the demon in the first place, it is serious error  to take them out of it.   Pastors and church leadership from all over the world were attending these meetings. Several names known from television were preaching. We happened to be there waiting for our van to take us to the air port, when a commotion came crashing out the doors of the sanctuary, right at our feet this woman landed, snarling, vomiting, and thrashing around, she had at least six men and women right on her, praying in tongues, praying: “Oh Jesus” “Oh Jesus”, she jumped up and ran a muck through the lobby, and into the women’s bathroom. They drug her out of the bathroom, and she ended up on the floor in the lobby again. I thought if they keep praying like that they might as well call the paramedics. It’s a wonder she didn’t leave a couple of them naked. It’s a wonder she wasn’t naked. That evil spirit was in control and he was running the show! They kept praying “Oh Jesus”, “help her Lord, help her Lord”. I could not believe what I was hearing, but I had to stay out of it. I was not invited into it, and theses places have their order. I don’t think Jesus would do that. You can see for yourself  He rarely barged in on other people’s business. I thought, I’m staying out of this. But it wasn’t to long into this fiasco that the Lord began to speak to me a word of wisdom. He said, “Don’t turn around, don’t look at them, don’t posture yourself one bit, just yell out above the noise and command the evil spirit to leave the woman”. So I did, I yelled at the top of my voice, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you unclean spirits leave this woman now!” It got quiet for a moment, some one caught on, pretty soon they all began to directly address the unclean spirits in Jesus name, and command them to leave. They didn’t even know where that voice came from. The power of God came in, she began to settle down, and they were able to bring order into the situation. About that time our van came. Praise God in the Highest! For that name that is above every name!

Acts 19:13-19 (New International Version, ©2010) Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding. When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor.

Why do you look for Him here among the dead? He is RISEN!

1 Corinthian 10:3-7 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ …

I have seen ordinary christian people who know a lot about psychotherapy, and very little about the word of God. They have come to us for ministry yet chose to continue to dwell on the curses, instead of dwelling on the CROSS of Christ where ordinances written against us were nailed! If only they would stand and point to the Lamb, and say. “Satan, Christ bore my curse”. We have to get ourselves full of God and his word! This is the LIGHT that displaces darkness. Text book knowledge and deep studies are not going to do it. We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the WORD of our testimony (profession). I would rather tell people how to stand in their freedom in Christ, and how by the sword of the Word you can sever generational bondage (calling them by name, and telling them they cannot have you.) Rather than the alternative, which to me has been reduced to nothing more than sessions upon sessions of psychological witch hunts. Inner healing ministry gone viral. Balance is the key here. Word based and Spirit lead. The key to it all is believing that God really loves you, and that his thoughts toward you are for good and not for evil. That he will fulfill every bit of the covenant he has made with us, sealed by blood. In Christ set free healed and delivered. It is already done, we just need to contend for what is ours and walk in it.

How do we prepare ourselves to become dragon slayers in a possessed society?

How we affect the world in our prayer closet is how we will impact the world in the market place.  You see, in the spirit realm we live up to our reputations, real or devised. In the world we can hide what we really are if we are not true to ourselves, and honest with God, and man. We can dress for success and have an appearance of power. We can give ourselves titles that cause men to tremble in our presence. We can use our money to buy prestige and favor. However, kingdom authority cannot be achieved in any of these ways. Even the disciples could not cast out some devils. Jesus rebuked them for their doubt and unbelief, but also, reminded them, “these come not out but by fasting and by prayer“. In fact, there are many who stand behind the platforms and pulpits of christian churches today who occupy the offices of church authority, work in ministries, and services, that would be shredded alive had it not been for the dragon slayers, who cover them in prayers, those behind the scenes intercessors weeping before the throne, wrangling in battles of life, and death, for those whose prayer lives do not match their call. These warriors, these unassuming, untitled, so-called unauthorized, are changing the world around them …they are those, known in the spirit realm by name, of whom the world is not worthy … they are the unsung heroes that are impacting the earth in ways that will never be understood, this side of heaven. They are bearing fruit by investing in others  and their fruit will remain. This is why no man can glory, only God knows all that is involved in our victories. Nevertheless, a true and effective ministry will not shrink back from casting out devils, but will find many healings attached to taking authority over unclean spirits. Don’t be deceived, there is a devil behind most of the ills of mankind, and you will see more success in your ministry if you take authority over them.

Luke 6:17-19 (New King James version)who came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases,  as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed.  And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.

John 14:12 (New International Version (©1984)
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

The Running Man

Parkour and Triathlon

Open your mouth and I will fill it, says The Lord, have I not fashioned you to be my mouth piece!? To speak my words that I have placed in your heart to speak? The beating of your heart moves into your ears, and you continuously say, “Is this you? Is this you, Lord?” Did I not say I would fill you full to overflowing, when you seek me? Did I not say follow me and I would make you fishers of men? Can you do it apart from my Spirit; shall I not draw them first to myself by my invisible hand? Shall not I make your way prosper, to plant the heavens and lay the foundations of the earth with the words that proceed out of MY mouth? MY word shall not return void- BUT YOUR words are dead all ready, they lay ON the ground and cannot get up for there is no life in the dribbling of the wisdom of MEN.

imageTherefore, my servant knows the difference between my words and His own, for one is life and breath, and the other dust and death, and the two cannot mingle, says God.

Yet, it is my WORD that has accomplished the thing that I SENT HIM to accomplish. And even now the NEW MAN of whom CHRIST is the head- I have sent out like a TRIATHLON runner, who treks land and sea, mountain and valley, highway and hill, to do my work. More so, shall he scale the walls of hinderance, climb the face of resistance, shoot forth the arrow of prophetic proclamation, and swim the tides of change. In the moonlight of midnight he scans the horizon and discerns the silhouettes of  covert, and the tree lines that walk like men, he blows the trumpet in Zion! He scouts from the distant shores- what I declare as hidden is hidden, what I declare as seen is seen, and the WORDS I speak! says The Lord, are spirit and they are truth.

Isaiah 51: 4 Listen to me my people; And give ear to me … MY righteousness is near, My salvation has gone forth, THe coastlands will WAIT UPON ME, and upon MY arm they will trust.
