The lord gave me a picture.
I saw a lovely Christian woman with beautiful earings on. The earings were diamond and ruby. She was very elegant. She was sitting with her head slightly down, and I could see (on her other ear) all the jewels had been removed. She took them off to talk on the phone. I thought to my self they were her Crown Jewels. I looked down at her hand and saw an old land line phone. I saw how she took her “Crown Jewels” off to have a conversation. I remembered back in the day ladies would take their earings off to talk on the phone. I said, “Lord, What are you showing me here?”
Crown Jewels belong to the House of the Royals. They come out of the palace vaults to be worn by Kings and Queens for special occasions. As Christians we are of a Royal Priesthood.
1 Peter 2:9 King James Version (KJV)
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his everlasting light.
This Lady, this beautiful woman, represents all of us in Christ! His Bride.
The special event where we wear our Crown Jewels, is our salvation that we celebrate every day of our lives.
Hebrews 2 :1-3
Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have HEARD, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was CONFIRMED unto us by them that HEARD him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and GIFTS [treasures] of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will ..
She removed her Crown Jewels to have a conversation through an old land line phone.
Now days, we talk through the airways. In this vision airways would represent a spiritually uplifted conversation. But this was an earth bound line of communication. It was earthy. We always need to remember where we come from, and who we are, in Christ. Ladies and Gentlemen of the Kingdom, can you remember the last conversation you had, where you actually stepped down from your blessed position in Christ Jesus, just to meet eye to eye?
I think we all can! The Lord doesn’t want us to shed off what He paid such a high price for, that HE now has adorned us with. The (robe of righteousness, and mantle of our call) over lines of communication that would be cut off by the other end, if we let ourselves be genuinely His, in the sight of all men.
Sadly, many tolerate conditions imposed upon them by unbelievers, and Christians in unbelief.
Desiring that we edit our conversation to leave out what makes them feel uncomfortable. Do you have a relationship like that?
Whether the land line represents worldly conversations, or Christian communication that rejects the treasure we possess knowing Him; or is filled with gossip and tale bearing- we need to DISCONNECT that line!
Should we veil the sparkle of our Lord’s eye? Should we cap the flame of HIS Spirit to enjoy what we think is Christian fellowship? Should we hide the lamp of our salvation under a table?
Hunger for God appreciates every drop of joy that emanates from HIS people! Every ounce of love come from the Father, in all its forms; fruits and gifts of the Spirit, mantles and mandates of the KING! Let your light so shine among men! Fellowship is like a flowing river, it inspires; it spurs one another on to GOOD works. It should not be competitive, but rejoices in the truth, and seeing Jesus aglow in others.
Relationships that push against that, are earthbound religious connections that have no need, or desire, for more of Jesus. Their commonality may be Christianity but it may not be the LORDSHIP of Jesus Christ in their life. They may enjoy talking about CHURCH but initiating a Spirit filled, or Spirit led conversation, becomes awkward or one sided. The believer often feels like they just cannot connect with this person that is suppose to be a Christian. They will often find themselves compromising to keep the peace or keep the connection. The earth bound conversation the Bride of Christ was having over the phone- required HER to bow to a lesser authority than the one whom has redeemed her. Any relationship that pulls us into a soulish line of communication is exactly that, soulish.
We need to disconnect from lines of communication that are not Holy Spirit inspired; and rather, upgrade to a connection that benifits the thirsty and hungry soul that needs what we have, or shares in it. Kindred relationships that, simply, love us at our best! As we should them. Desperate souls soak in God’s love! Fellowship with the poor in spirit, is spending time with some one that never has enough of Jesus! Mathew 5:3 says, “For theirs is the kingdom of God.” They shall obtain it in their hunger, and humility.
Another type of relationship that turns into an earth bound connection is one that has a political nature to it. I’ve said this before and it is absolutely true. Any one effected by the power of peer pressure, is under political control. Entertaining that land line is a land mine of compromise, that always leads to hypocrisy. False humility, and shallow relationships, because the Saint of God was forced to take off their Crown Jewels in order to even CONNECT. It’s a pay to play kind of deal, that secures power over unified assembles in their fellowship and worship, supporting those that comply to its control, and pulls down those that don’t; neutralizing, if not paralyzing Spirit filled praise and worship that brings down the glory of God, in our meetings. Often times resistance against the moves of God are not from with out, but from with in.
Peer pressure rarely swings anyone into a positive zone. This is why we know it is usually demonic oppression behind it.
The woman I saw was holding the phone in her hand, by the twisting cord, as it dangled to her side. We need to hang up on bad company and disconnect with that old religious python, that hates the Crown Jewels of the people of God. Relentlessly, dissecting, and debating, the word of truth with, “Has God said?” Let your light shine and reconnect with the salt and light of the earth. Avoiding vain babblings.
Another thing we may be in the habit of doing, is taking a step down from our position in Christ, to give ear to counselors, that have less counsel than we do! Don’t tolerate cords that keep you bound to a line of communication that is spiritually bankrupt! That wastes your time and life. Never cover your lamp with the prideful lying shades of false humility. It is a temptation come from an accusation of Satan, designed to side line the Saints of God, every time they try to step out in obedience to their gift and call! That old Pharasutical remark, even Jesus had to endure, is implied by that prince and power of the air, saying “Who do you think YOU are, we know where you come from?” Familiar with the short comings of the saints but never familiar with their gift and anointing. Aware of their humanity but resistant to the Spirit of Christ in them.
Therefore do not be partakers with them
Ephesians 5:6-13 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God on the children of disobedience. Be not you therefore partakers with them. For you were sometimes in darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatever does make manifest is light.
Don’t take your Crown Jewels off to satisfy a religious spirit, who has rejected the wonderful details of their own great salvation. We were born to bring GOD glory. Wear the garments of HIS praise, be of HIS Royal Priesthood, peculiar. The event is your Salvation. The Crown Jewels are the gifts of His promise, and graces HE has adorned YOU with! The light reflected from what HE has given you, is HIS light. It will draw to Him them that love the LIGHT.
And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem: When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the middle thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. And the LORD will create on every dwelling place of mount Zion, and on her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night …
And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and from rain.
He that endures to the end, shall be saved.
According to the encyclopedia most modern ponies were once horses that developed a small stature because they lived on the margins of livable horse habitat. A pony will always be a pony but originally it was a horse. Now bred to be different breeds. A pony is a dwarfed horse because it lived in an environment that could not sustain it. So it adapted. A horse in dreams often represent power. In this dream I’m about to share, remember, it ends well for them who endure to the end. Who yields to their maker, that He can draw out from them, the power of their potential, in Christ.
There are religious strongholds in the land that dwarf the development of God’s people by quenching and resisting the Holy Spirit. Having a form of Godliness but denying the power there of. Clouds, the bible says, without rain. This condition creates a religious environment, that cannot sustain Christian growth and true maturity. Rather, it is producing the faint of heart, and unprepared disciples, that will have difficulty withstanding days of difficulty. Simply because their full potential has never had the opportunity to develop past getting saved, and on to abundant life training. Where our circumstances don’t dictate to us how we live our life in Christ, but our life in Christ demands circumstances to bow and serve Him. All should be filled and endued with power from on high. Acts 2, all should know their authority as believers. Quenching the Spirit in our meetings creates dependence, not disciples. Few anointings have the opportunity to rise up, and be trained in Spirit led training. God calls them out. Generations of a powerless gospel have produced a sub species of Christian that cannot break from its mind set, but for God! If a pastor wants to know the health of his congregation, and their strength and trust in God, all he has to do is count those medicated on pills, struggling with sin, and addictions; those living on government assistance, and the in firmed. If a congregation is sitting under the restraints of an institutionalize Christianity, there will be many in that state of living. I’m not trying to be harsh or judgmental here, but we have to look at the truth in regard to the condition of the Church. Who and what she is dependent on. Christ Church should not be medicated, broke, and dieing.
Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?
Only God can stretch a horse out of a pony. But they will have to leave the pony farm, to become their full potential. Ponies are desired for Children. They are not desired for battle. If we as pastors are raising up those that will endure to the end, that is commendable. Let us go further, and seek to train them to run with endurance, to the end; this great race set before us.
Zechariah 10:3 (AMP) My anger is kindled against the shepherds [who are not true shepherds], And I shall punish the male goats (leaders); For the LORD of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, And will make them like His majestic horse in battle.
I had a prophetic dream after a believer’s meeting in our home town. I feel that in it is a word for believers who live in areas of the Bible Belt. My phone rang sitting on the night table, (like it wasn’t a dream) and I picked it up and there was a loud beast of a voice on the other end screeching at me. I knew it was a rulership of darkness over the area, and we must have rattled its cage the night before. I knew this had something to do with our intercession for the city. I couldn’t make out any words, the call came from main street downtown. While the voice continued screeching, I knew I needed to keep talking, and speaking the word, and I could tell the teachers anointing was in it. The voice on the phone seemed to be the embodiment, of all the push back felt in this area since the Lord’s assignment 8 years ago. After quite a while the voice tamed down and became more and more human sounding, and I began to make out the words it was saying.
The short of it was that a demonic controller named RIFT, come out from the root of rebellion, was raging against our intercession, and ministry of the spoken word, over the phone! A prince and power of the air! The voice was very animated, and boastful. Very opinionated, and letter of the law, while acting as an illegal operative, against God’s people. Wise in its own eyes, while an ignorant form of bible knowledge poured out of RIFT’s mouth, and it was divisive. Rift’s human agents resist the Holy Spirit, spread legalism, and seed discord.
1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness as idolatry.
All I could think of was that the end game for those bound by this darkness was under developed christians, dwarfed in their potential by being made deaf, dumb, and blind. A spirit of rebellion that found a place to become a stronghold in a deeply divided land. A land with a church on every corner. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, or divination.
The night before we were praying, and repenting, and repenting for God’s people, even mentioning ancient divisions so intense that blood was spilled on the ground. Where there is division and strife there is every evil work. If strongholds of God are not lifting oppression off the land and establishing Christ, the Living Word, then darkness remembers its abode. The church cannot retreat with out devils seeking back their haunts. Seven times with seven more. If divisions plagued the land before, they will again, until that power is broken. Spirits move in because ground is lost, not taken. Jesus said OCCUPY until I come. Not regress. When evil spirits trespass it is time to remind the enemy of our inheritance, that we have one, and walk in it.
As I was on the phone I walked the five miles to town towards where the phone caller was calling from, decreeing the WORD the whole time. Until I came to a fuel station, and stood near a gas pump, and saw a gas tank-truck start to tip over. Right at a CONVENIENT store, where they sold fuel. Think about it. This voice of rebellion was still running its mouth. I cried out, run!
The fuel station exploded. It was like I went down to see a fire ignite right there where that Satanic stronghold called me from. It was there I snatched from the flames two living beings. Fire poured out to the ground like a river. I saved what I could so that it wouldn’t be destroyed by the fire, and escaped into a steel walled building. It had steel, riveted doors, and concrete. It was a fire proof shelter, and I headed up to the second floor. I saw a huge garbage disposal. It “contained” the fire as flames rolled in from outside. Burning trash only, and the place was like a furnace. The consuming fire from the fuel station, was transformed into a refining fire, as the fire proof structure brought controls to the inferno, burning trash only.
Jesus-Luke 12:49 Amp
“I have come to cast fire on the earth; and how I wish that it were already kindled!”
There were others there nearer to the furnace withstanding the flames. Even closer than I. They were operating equipment that kept the fire contained, burning trash only. They were intercessors, and Angels. I felt bad for the two animals I saved from the fire. A pony and bunny, because in some ways I brought them closer to the heat. Even though they were saved from the fire. The pony was very uncomfortable. The fire wasn’t effecting me, but the bunny passed out. The two are a picture of how important it is to make ourselves ready, so we can endure to the end. So we won’t be the faint of heart, but rather actively involved as end times intercessors. What good are we if we pass out having little courage, or like the pony, trying so hard to bear the heat, but barely able to even move? The intercessors, interceding in the furnace room, narrowed the burning down to refuse only.
We have only a short time left to contend for ground, that it become a habitat for growth. That God can pull the horse out of the pony, no longer stunted by a powerless religion.
“I [the Lord] have set you as an assayer [O Jeremiah] and as a tester [of the ore] of My people, That you may know and analyze their acts.” They are all the worst [kind] of [stiff-necked, godless] rebels, Going around spreading slander. They are [not gold and silver ore, but] bronze and iron; They are all corrupt.
The bellows blow fiercely,
The lead is consumed by the fire;
In vain they continue refining,
But the wicked are not separated and removed. They call them rejected silver [only dross, without value], Because the Lord has rejected them. ( They are burning dross only).
Because the seed fell on rocky, weedy, shallow ground.
The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’
We have to break out of what confines us, always seeking for more of God. Being so hungry and thirsty for the bread and water of life, that we break through the four walls of false religion. Pressing in to the upward call of God. Not allowing ourselves to become acclimated to a culture or environment that quenches the Holy Spirit ever again. This would restrict anyone’s spiritual growth. John, who water baptized, said Jesus will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire. Continue to:
Seek and you shall find, Knock and the DOOR shall be opened to you. Ask and you shall receive. – Mathew 7:7
12/28/2017 Formally titled: A City In Asia
Proverbs 22:3 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished.
Prophetic warning for a city somewhere in Asia.
In a dream I was a westerner in an Asian city. Let me describe this city to you. It was an area like an older downtown. Very active with a lot of people coming and going. There were a few Caucasian’s there, I could say from America
but I don’t know, nothing I saw gave me a clue from where they came. I’m thinking, perhaps, English is not a barrier. These were not, necessarily, tourists. I came out of my apartment down some narrow stairs to the street, it wasn’t a new building, but well kept-up with clean side walks. Things seemed close and compacted together. There was nothing that looked third world around me. But the street seemed to be teeming with market activity. Lots of food venders and restaurants. In this dream those that lived in (what looked like a down town) made it a habit to step outside and procure meals for the day.
The open market had all kinds of fresh food, and even pre-made noodles. The vender would pull up a measure and bag them for the recipient to go warm them up later at home for a meal. Also, I could just walk across the street and go into a café and eat there, instead. In fact, this was what I had just done before stopping at the market place. Also, it appeared to be a pedestrian dominated area. I noticed the outdoor market was in the sun. It seemed the street was not in deep shade of high rises, nor was it dank, or smoggy. I didn’t see signs of impoverishment. I found my self fourth in line to purchase something from a vender. I noticed I was wearing a bright orange t-shirt. I saw a few other westerners wearing these shirts. It was a shorts friendly day outside. I never wear orange and I never eat noodles. I don’t wear a watch and I am female. So, I’m not myself in this dream. I have never been any where in an Asian country. I did think I could be some where in Hong Kong, but I know better than to assume things like that because I have been mistaken before. I saw the mall massacre in Nairobi, Kenya just 24 hours before it occurred, September 21, 2013; but thought I was in Syria because of days spent praying for that region, but I was in Nairobi in the aftermath of a mall attack. When I saw the news photos of the building where it happened, I knew then it was Nairobi. I’m not going to do that again. Nevertheless, my mind may not have known the place but God knew and prayers went up, I’m sure less happened there than was planned because of the saints of God who pray for this world. I would have done better to describe the floor tiling in the mall, and the landscape out doors. I have to say if the Lord wanted me to know He would have told me, for He has.
Again, I’m being detailed to shed light on prophetic processes.
Anyway, the people native to this place were Asians and lighter skinned than say people of Cambodia or Thailand. As far as westerners and the people native to this area there were no other cultural differences in dress, mostly casual to business casual on this day. More like Saturday go to market casual … In the dream I received my goods from the market and turned to the building, where my apartment was, to take home, for dinner, later.
This is when I began to hear a narrative run through my mind as it were from the Father. He said, “What would you do if something happened and you would not be able to collect your meal from these each day?” The thought stunned me because I realized my dependency on the vendors and cafes’. That really I didn’t have any store to speak of, food or water, that would last more than just a day. I wondered at my recklessness in such a world we live in. I began to think of scenarios that would suddenly stop commerce, and felt the panic of such a thing. The scene changed and I was in a crisis. I didn’t see destruction. But the venders and shoppers were gone. The businesses were closed. The dream ended with my character, back before the crisis putting together an emergency kit and stocking his cupboards. Some items gathered were light for flight and non cumbersome.
When I woke up I knew the orange t-shirt meant a warning for foreigners in this place. Particularly, those clearly of the Caucasian race, I don’t know why other foreign races were not pointed out.
Orange in nature and in the civilized world is used to warn. Why they were wearing orange may be because being non native born, without family in the area, they would be more at risk. Being caucasian clearly pointed out one as foreign. Public opinion can turn quickly in politically tumultuous times. For example when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Japanese Americans were taken to concentration camps for national security purposes. I’m also thinking that the age group in the dream, if they were Americans, they have never had an interruption of basic food supplies in their life time. They may not understand the impact world events could have on them over night. That the vendors in that market, don’t necessarily, live in town; but, come there to sell and buy their goods- their risk could be less than those dependent on the downtown being supplied. For many, living downtown was a trendy pursuit to do so, by young native-born professionals, and westerners alike.
One other note was that I clearly saw a young Asian woman wearing a yellow light pull over sweater. I thought of the act of yielding, waiting … I thought for some, such crises would require preparation to wait it out. She walked wearing a blouse and sweater. This a casual sign of readiness in the event of atmospheric change. So, when the temperature changes for her she will have more flexibility to respond, as a born citizen of this region. I would say if this dream has any warning in it, that seemed to come out of the clear blue sky … An event in such a place would be very trying if not dangerous to not have a plan. Really, it should be a habit for everyone to consider a plan B, in order to survive, or at least not have to make choices, less desirable out of desperation. Which is another topic God’s been speaking to me about altogether, to remind His people what we trust Him for, and how much we rely upon Him, even when times are good, this is what will bring us stability and presence of mind when times and circumstances suddenly change. Wisdom is justified by her children. As Solomon said, look at the ant. I don’t know why I had this dream. But because what God has shown me over the last three decades with Somalia, Mozambique, Syria, Nairobi, and more recently the Congo Ebola out-break; I can only pray, warn, and document. *
Deana Barnes 12/29/2017 11:59 am.
*Again just a day or two after this dream, I had another: Two or Three young Caucasian men on a city street, thirsty and faint with hunger. It seemed like some kind of dust kick up, but the scene was not the same, now they are more away from the downtown area, and when I say downtown it could have been a trendy older city street near a more modern area. Where young Caucasian foreigners were now among a mixture of city and country people and there seems to be a bench. One of the young men is sitting on it exhausted. With just the clothes on his back, moving through a scene that seems desperate. I don’t know what this dream is all about but there is a wisdom in it.
When we are wise in our ways desperation cannot take us places we would rather not go. This young man was living vicariously. Moment to moment like many people do. Wouldn’t it be ridiculous to have to run to the streets in the middle of a crisis looking for water, when one could have stayed where they were at until things settled down; or, had a readiness pack to take with them? This is true with the condition of our souls, we can have assurance in Christ now, we can be in a place (spiritually) prepared for what ever comes. Even knowing what lies ahead and how to prepare. First and for most our souls need to be made ready for Christ’s return.
Beyond that, if God’s warnings are needed for spiritual preparation only, why was the Prophet Agabus used by the Spirit to warn of a famine during the time of the first Apostles? Why did Barnabas and Saul bring famine relief to the believers in Judea? Furthermore, if people think prophets are not suppose to speak of future events in this church era; but, only to edify, exhort, and comfort, then they need to study Acts 11:27, and Acts 28:27. As well as consider John’s book: The Revelation Of Jesus Christ. Or, take my view of it all and perhaps broaden their understanding of what edification, exhortation, and comfort, of the saints, all entails. In the world we live in today, I have seen tragedy in the lives of God’s people, because they viewed a prophet’s prophetic warning as a negative report, and would not receive it. I’ve seen God give a two year advance warning against cancer that was called an evil report, two years later the cancer was discovered too late. Had they just checked it out … On the other hand there was a family warned to begin canceling out an assignment against their daughter’s life. They began to pray over their adult child, and God miraculously spared their daughter’s life in a bicycle/ car accident just a week later. No lasting injuries. What the Church should do is go back to the pattern of a Jerusalem council to seek God for wisdom, and resolve, when visions, dreams, words and prophecies are released to the body, to get specific answers from God on how to move forward. Why not set up a prophetic prayer council among the body, to process all words given? The bible says let the prophets stand and judge! So let them. To confirm a word, seek on it, or receive of a move of God’s Spirit, or take actions to avoid adversity. But we don’t really do that much any more … We just stand back and watch to see if what was prophesied “comes to pass.”
Church, when are we going to activate our power and influence in the earth? It is time to rise and shine. Let’s become the people of Isaiah 60:1, 61:1, 62:1; in the Earth. Pastors stop paralyzing your people with fear of prophets, and prophecy, and begin teaching God’s sheep how to process the prophetic word. Most camp grounds and parks do not want people throwing together a pit fire for themselves, so they designate a safe place to contain one, with all the provision needed. They even provide the kindling to get one going! This is facilitating a fire and putting in safe guards so no one gets burned. But even though they know the Holy Spirit manifests as fire, some pastors never set up provision that will keep it going and make it last. Too many skiddish leaders just hope God won’t send a fire starter, so they have that fire extinguisher out and ready the minute some one gets too happy. If they continue in that mentality, one day … One day a fire will break out and they will have to be the mop up crew, after the fact. That is disorder because no one thought ahead. If we can’t manage revival fires on a singular scale how in the world will they be administrated on a city wide scale. Why, some pastors get a cold sweat when they hear some one break out in tongues. The least of all the gifts. Jesus said the Son of Man will return, but He asked a question, “Will He find faith in the earth when He comes? Will the Church be prepared to meet him? Will they be busy stewarding the returns on His great Life investment He poured out for all mankind? Or will they answer, “We were afraid? We not only buried our own talents but every one entrusted to us had to throw theirs in the hole too!” That is not His way. Wisdom is known by her children. If it gets messy it’s not yours to put it out, but it is yours to steward what could become a perpetual flame! He’s coming back to collect dividends on what has been entrusted, will the church of God be empty handed?
Back to the dream, God wants His people to be in a state of readiness. To be as wise as servants and harmless as doves.
“But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into.
** Whether this dream is a word of wisdom for all of us to keep in mind the times we are living in, or a specific warning regarding an event to come. It can be taken as a teaching scenario to be vigilant and sober, to watch and pray. To live in a state of spiritual readiness at all times. While I am not a prepper, my strongest advice would be that if our life style (aside from Jesus’s direct command, in Mathew 10:10, to go without purse, script, or sword) hurls us into the street, out of desperation, shortly after an event or crisis, then we cannot possibly be living our lives with intent according to the wisdom of God, specifically as it is written in the book of Proverbs.
Give not sleep to your eyes, nor slumber to your eyelids. Deliver yourself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler. Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provided her meat in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you sleep, O sluggard? when will you arise out of your [lack of awareness] sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall your poverty come on at once, [like a woman in travail], and your want as an armed man.
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
State Of Exposure prophecy of 2017.
All most one year ago, posted here on my WordPress blog, was a prophetic word for 2017. The original post is linked below. I would say it certainly has come to pass. State of Exposure is now (in- retrospect) probably the best way to describe what our country has been going through for the last year. I would venture to say with more to come! Exposures and disclosures. The “me too” movement as of late, sweeping across the nation, contributing to a good measure of what was described as
A spirit of trembling of what would be exposed through the night, while the nations sleeps. Jan. 4, 2017
While the nation is still reeling with the kind of disclosures and exposures that have ended many lifelong careers, and probably a few relationships, so we are just scratching the surface with deeper revelations to come.
Nevertheless, Americans have been more concerned about their misconduct being called out in the workplace, than they are of the menace of North Korea. And the treasonist acts of public officials in our government. Still the word “a spirit of trembling” comes to mind as long as Kim Jong-un, terrorists, and Deep State exists, and by no means not for just Americans. Another word mentioned that was not what you would expect but still makes a profound statement, and that was the fainting Judge prophecy, that you will see in State of Exposure in regard to conviction. Now, at the time I had no idea who that would be, and I have no desire to be a prophet for show business events, but this “happening” is a word in itself, calling a nation out of its idolatry! After googling “fainting judge” it turns out the producer and Judge of the talent show “American Idol” had a life altering event take place after “fainting” in October of this year, prompting the famous judge of “American Idol” to quote: “Change his life style for the sake of his son.”
Is conviction going to prompt us to turn from an American life of raising idols, and rather change our lifestyles to raising our sons? I don’t think I need to go into great detail on how prophetic this Fainting Judge word is. Just read the prophecy. And remember the Spirit of Elijah is doing an end-time work.
The Spirit of Elijah is sent out in the latter days to turn the fathers heart towards their sons .. Mal 4:4-6
So anyway 2018 will be known as the year of aftermath, and consequence, and the notion of cause and effect. A reaping of what has been sowed in the way of sowing to the wind. The life altering events that have taken hold of many in this nation, for reasons beyond exposure but in relation to storms that exposure seems to whip up- just as real storms exist, we have aftermath to contend with in either circumstance. Real or man made. Deserved or undeserved. As 2017 was called the Year of Exposure, so 2018 is going to be known as a year of consequence. While more storms are coming, with their own post traumatic stress to navigate through. Those who trust God unwaveringly, will emerge upon a track of renewal.
This cause and effect is cycling through and manifesting into returns and renewals. For those who have their priorities right and are not the faint of heart.
Remembering in all thing that Jesus is our solid ground. There is no other rock to stand on.

Laying the axe to Fruitful Trees
What does God say about slander in the Body of Christ against Christian ministry that has gone before us?
In a world where things are often not what they seem, it is a Christian’s duty to pursue truth. In Christ it’s that one thing obtainable for wanting it. He that is hungry and thirsty for righteousness sake shall be filled. Deception is for those who love not the truth and hate not the lie. When life throws us a set of circumstances out side of our control, such as a destructive storm, or a personal life altering event, the only two things we can really depend on is truth and trust, the truth of God’s word and trust in His promises.
Rebuilding on a firm foundation begins with truth, in the following assessments. In the assessment of damage and estimate of repairs.
After every storm, it is up to us to decide what is salvageable and what is loss. To count the cost of rebuilding. With God no task is insurmountable. No damage un restorable, no impossibility impossible. What limits God is not our lack of strength, or our fear over the circumstances, or even our hurt or anger toward Him. What limits God is our slowness in accepting truth. The truth that what just happened did in fact happen, is not something that can easily be comprehended, as any one who has been in an accident, war zone, or disaster can tell you. Yet the sooner we realize that we just servived the unsurvivable, thanking God in all things, the better positioned we are to minimize further loss and damage by engaging a sound mind in the immediate events around us. This comes easier for those who have already disciplined their mind in prayer and the pursuit of peace as a daily endeavor. All is paramount in accepting what can be done when starting over.
The truth in cause, and the evaluation of viability in what remains. Foundations and infrastructure are often left in the aftermath of a storm, that can be restored.
However, the lesson learned following Hurricane Sandy, teaches us that what we rebuild on, could be a set up for even more devastation. The famous board walk along the New Jersey shore that was badly damaged, was hastily rebuilt only to go up in flames because of faulty wiring, not replaced from the old structure. This could have been avoided by an uncomprimising acceptance of truth in the practice of principles and standards. For example the word of God tells us not to build in the sand, not to patch an old garment with new fabric. Not to put new wine in old wine skins. Asking questions of our standards. Did we build a mud hut in a flood zone? Did we erect a trailer in tornado ally? Did we build a house over a dry creek? Will rebuilding be in vain because of climate change? Will the same material used before be a liability? Should a wood structure be built-in drought stricken “foothills? That is why we have zoning laws. That is why the bible and its standards for living, its rules of engagement, its wisdom in making right decisions, are reasons why we do research, and get are permits, from God to build. So that errors will not be made all over again.
The removal of debris.
We can’t break new ground with out removing debris. Getting over the fear that something salvageable will be missed. That somehow moving on, means giving up on dreams. At some point, we have to step back, stop picking through our loss, and turn the destruction over to clearance. This is truth in acceptance. To clear the damage. This is letting go and letting God. It is the last decision made concerning the past, and the first decision made towards the future. It is a conscious decision to release what was, and begin to embrace hope for what will be. We can cling to old relics of the past and bring them into our life as a monument of all our yesterdays, or we can fill the walls and shelves of our new day, with the treasures discovered in life’s present lessons and value. Monuments are good at what they do, they remind us to remember lessons learned, in previous journeys. We go to them to do that, but no one should live in a grave yard. Yet, people live in the past in their minds all the time, mourning what could have been, or even what should have been. There is no path of renewal there, only sorrow and regret. But God doesn’t call us to that.
Truth in estimates, the cost of repair, and requirements to rebuild. Truth in resource, having what it takes economically and emotionally.
Being honest in the will to rebuild, and contentment in what was. Asking yourself if rebuilding where it ended is what you really want. The circumstances of life will manage those who refuse to live it truthfully, purposely, and principally. We may have standards, but might live and work in a lawless atmosphere where other people are setting their standards that bring us shame. At some point there may be a time when preservation is not a decision to be made, but a response for survival. When your back yard begins to turn into a mud slide down a ravine there is no time to plan, all you can do is react. What can be noted ahead however, is that structures built on a mountain side are susceptible to mud slides during heavy rain. A husband battling addiction, who is the bread-winner, is that house on the mountain side in a heavy rain. A wife who has a gambling problem that is in charge of paying the mortgage payment is too. Wisdom sees the potential collapse and fault in non principled living, and makes arrangements for its failure.
This is not a fear driven assessment. It is truth in making an assessment.
Being emotionally lead is soulish. Being spiritually led by the Spirit of God, is a yielded life to the counsel of God’s word. They that walk in the Spirit will not fulfill the desires of the flesh Galatians 5. God says, acknowledge me in ALL your ways and I will guide and direct your path! Let HIM search your heart. For the spirit of man is the candle of the Lord searching the inward part of the belly. Because the heart is exceedingly wicked we cannot trust it. That is why we go to the Father with the intent to be honest with him, with a willingness to accept the truth and not deny it. For an honest and truthful assessment of our lives, and circumstances, clears the fog. Decisions that are right come from seeing right. Hearing right. This needs to be actively contended for. Deception and denial are our worst enemy in a time of crises. In the world we live in now, we have already been lulled into a slumber in the midst of a raging storm, when we really need to have our wits about us. Jesus said watch and pray. Today, we need to be fully awakened and seek truth no matter what the cost.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 King James Version (KJV) 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.

Passing through Babylon.

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy race, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Inordinate affection is an over the top passion, about anything other than our love for the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. An inordinate affection causes us to act disorderly and leads to sin. The greek word associated with it is pathos, meaning mental- you find it in the word: pathological, or psychopathic. We can get mental about a lot of things in this world these days and loose the mind of Christ in it! In fact, with the help of mainstream media and its dangerous slant on truth, many are developing opinions and a world view, in these end times, that will feed into what is described in the bible as the great deception. Satan, the bible says, is like a roaring lion pacing back and forth, seeking for an opportunity to devour. He is looking for the hamstring knock out, that will take us down. For example:
There are Christians that have kept a level head so far, maintaining a balanced view on current social headlines, or issues, until it began to bleed into the NFL.
Suddenly, we have people that (have been thought to be rational and balanced, in their views) going over the top, with inordinate or pathos’ responses because now it has touched on something that they are truly passionate about! The enemy will find our boiling point that will throw us into the ring, letting the god of this world, and the prince of the power of the air, fuel anger to the point we become inflamed; rather than, allowing the Spirit of God to temper our passions.
Nothing, should warrant division among the family of God in these days of ethnic uprisings, prophesied by Christ. We are one holy race. That is it. In all things there is the mind of Christ to be had! If we cleave to our heritages forgetting that God said our heritage is of HIM, then that will breed contention, in times of tension, among ethnic uprising. I suspect that there will be those that have such strong ties, culturally, they will not embrace their heritage that is of the Father, and they will forsake it. Had they ever looked into their identity in Christ, they would have understood what a great inheritance we have in Him. Heirs they are, who believe in their heart that God rose Jesus from the dead, confessing with their mouth He is Lord! Romans 10:9-10
In a world such as ours we should know one thing more than anything else. That is Christ and Him crucified. Seeking discernment of spirits, to differentiate between what all should be known, and what the prince of the power of the air wants us to believe.
Little Children guard your hearts and minds, keep yourself from idols, as John would say. Remembering, we all shall need adjusting, and do even now, like Peter when Jesus said, “You don’t know what spirit ye are of.” For everyone will be tempted to activism when it gets hard, this will be difficult. In all things we should remember that we are Ambassadors of Jesus Christ. So, all we should do and say, is what HE would do and say, to those who dwell outside of HIS Kingdom.
Many, are well acquainted with Jesus but have rejected him, and HIS servants, time and time again; and would have the mind of Christ now, in these days of crisis in America, if they would have listened to Him a long time ago. Still, we compel all … to come. We the (true church) will have the answers. We are citizens of the Kingdom of God. Hopefully, there will be media out reach, and I know many are set up for this, who can be a relevant voice of reason. Rightly dividing the word of truth.
The Lord, spoke to me about a leavening that would be introduced to the whole lump, if we didn’t make sure to: “Guard your hearts and minds in the days and weeks to come.” I heard the Lord say, “You knew it would be just a matter of time?” I answered, “Yes Lord.” Knowing to warn all that love HIM, to know that our affections, our passions; who or what we love, will be used by the enemy to pull any one of us into an agenda, that is earth bound, not heaven sent. In these amazing times the Lord will use His anointed to do great and mighty exploits. Many in the Spirit poised to be a clear and present force with in these days of shakings to come. To be a steady voice in the wilderness, and a stabilizer in the midst of chaotic times. Nevertheless, new works are always at the risk of take over, when they are easiest to infiltrate. That is why we have a carnage of slaughtered unborn, and sexualy abused children, that are targeted in this ruthless world we live in. Satan knows new beginnings don’t have a firm identity to resist splitting its purpose, or aborting it altogether. It will begin with what we think is right and true, because a passion has flared up on the inside of us! Just like pro abortion activists! But the question has to be asked, where did it come from, how was it fueled? Will we end up with more dead works in the world? Another voice of compromise, a mixture in this world? Or, will what God has begun among his Church, His ekklesia, become the representation of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth? An Embassy representing Yeshuah, and His Kingdom ways. In this they will know us by OUR love.
Leavening is a fermentation that begins to spread in the dough, it lies dormant until all the right conditions come together and then it spreads very quickly.
If one were to change their mind about adding yeast, it can only be done if the fermentation is localized and then cut out, after its been introduced. Leavening is like sin. SIN means to fall short. A thing can seem right until it is debated, or another side is told. A man thinks to himself his way is right, but the end of that way is death. I pray that in every way, we as Christians seek the full counsel of God, in all things. Because perilous times are coming. Why should we take a rabid dog by the ears in an argument not our own, in a time when evil is all around us? We are in this world not of it, and careful prayer for supernatural wisdom is required to navigate through all things called a controversy, victoriously. In Mathew 24 Jesus said, there will be wars and rumors of war, nation will rise against nation .. the word in greek for nation is ETHOS’ from it the word ethnic is derived. Believe me brothers and sisters, you will want both feet in the Kingdom of God in these days of wars, and rumors of wars, nations rising up against nations! Not leaving one foot, stubbornly, stirring in those sin born controversies where there is no clear path to embrace. For sin lies in the heart of men. The heart is exceedingly wicked. Cleave to God and His son the Lord Jesus, He will give you a VOICE that will be heard, in these ethnic risings, and rumors of war! You are of one faith and baptism, you are of a Holy Priesthood one nation. Why do the heathen rage and the peoples imagine a vain thing? As we read on in Mathew chapter 24 the scripture says, “and this gospel shall be preached …” see that? (And) (while) (as) these things are going on – This gospel shall be preached!
We cannot be doing both! It is clearly one way or the other. Either you and I are part of the uprising, the wars, and rumors of wars, or we are preaching this gospel Of the Lord Jesus Christ! Remember you are in Christ, dead to the old man! The old man is a reveller! The message of the cross, and true repentance of sin is the answer to mankind’s ills.
Psalms 2:8 Ask me and I will make the Nations [Etho’-s] your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
Put on the New Self. If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For you are DEAD, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.
Mortify therefore your members which are on the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience: In the which you also walked some time, when you lived in them. But now you also put off all these; ANGER, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is RENEWED in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is NEITHER Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor un circumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
Put on therefore, AS THE ELECT of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do you. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also you are called in one body; and be you thankful. Let the WORD of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and ADMONISHING one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
… 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!
I Lay in Zion for a foundation, a stone.
Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds his people.
A prophetic dream.
Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed.
Lately, a lot has been said about Zionism and Zionists. I rejoice with the Jews, being returned to their homeland! Because God said that was what He was going to do in the latter years, He would return them to their land! We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. However my support stops at the rebuilding of the temple. Jesus tore that temple down and raised it up after three days. Clearly He spoke of HIS body. I’m not touching that, I’m not sending in my fifty dollars to clone back a red heifer. Jesus is the true temple. Do Christians really need to be reminded that the sacrificial lamb was sacrificed in the person of Jesus Christ, the son of God? Jesus, was once and for all sacrificed for the remission of sins, and there is no other provision, but what Jesus did for all man kind upon the cross, I would never support, or want to support, an institution that Christ himself has done away with! Reinstating the daily sacrifice, would be an obomination. If I am wrong then I am wrong; however, if I am right and Christians are helping to rebuild that temple to reinstate the daily sacrifice, they are Apostate. Paul called this category of activity, a bewitchment from the truth. The Jews do not have a separate work to be performed for them. The first Christians were Jews. They must receive Christ, as us all. Make sure you’re not perpetuating a damnable offense, by helping to raise an altar Christ himself has done away with. Nothing, can trump the Lord’s sacrifice. EVER.
That being said, scripture brings us back to the pure stream of God’s word! In regard to ZION!
I had a dream that cleared it all up for me. Maybe my dream will do it for you too.
There was a young Christian man. He seemed weathered and in some turmoil, his companion was dressed in black, she was about to have a baby. They were in an unholy union, a Christian bound to the Law. Married to it! He kept saying “When Zion comes it will be better, I’m looking for Zion.” This went on for awhile, he was defeated and broke, his clothes were ragged, and dirty. This Christian was full of sin awareness. He confessed Christ but the blood of Jesus needed more of his help, in his mind. He was married to the law. He was always coming up short. Him and the sin awareness he was married to were going to have a baby, his offspring would be called the Final Church of the Dead Born. Their destiny (man, woman, and offspring) was a place called much tribulation. My SPIRIT Had enough, listening to him mourn for Zion. In the dream I abruptly turned to him and said, Look here “I Am ZION!” The words rolled off my tongue with righteous indignation! Justice seemed to accent the words when I said, “I !!Am!! ZION!!!” A little surprised at myself, I had to stop and think about it, but knew it was true!
I want to tell you that before this dream I never really thought about Zion one way or another. Not in any special revelatory way. Though not surprised by the statement, I Am Zion. It fits in the scheme of things pretty well, right now.
I wanted him to know Christ as I did, and himself as the blood bought that we are. Letting those words drop deep into his soul, knowing how I would have to explain it to him later. He just kept looking at me in shock, while we were trying to get him to face this birth (the ramifications) of this un holy union HE was responsible for. The birth of his offspring (come from doubt and unbelief) would bring much tribulation. I believe that this dream reveals what mixing the law with grace looks like. Jesus came to redeem us from the curse of the law. If we continue sharing the altar of Christ’s sacrifice, with our own kind of righteousness, and refuse to seek understanding to know how great a salvation HE attained for us, then this mixture will bring forth a new and terrible religion of compromise, it will secure millions of souls into the grip of the last horse and rider of the apocalypse. Death followed by hell. Whole cities, and armies, will be swallowed up into the yawning gasp of the devil’ s hell. Along the lawless will be those who still believe their own kind of righteousness will award them heaven. They don’t know who they are. Zion is a distant and lofty dream. In that they have neglected a great salvation, disqualified from obtaining the full benefits of Christ’s work on the cross. The healing, and deliverance, the power of God, the Ambassadorship, and the authority.
Sweet praying CHURCH who makes herself ready, you’re the redeemed of the Lord! We are ZION we have come, already. I believe in a literal return of the Lord Jesus Christ- I believe His head quarters will be in Jerusalem, what ever that will look like, what ever that will be. We have earthly bodies, and heavenly bodies, God is redeeming the earthly body last. We still live in the body of this death; but, as Job 19:26 said “my dead body eaten of worms, will one day rise, and I will see God in my flesh! The first fruits of the dead, even Christ himself said, “I AM HE who liveth and was dead, now behold I am alive forever more! Saying, I am He who WAS, IS and IS to come …!” HE is in us, dwelling in the city of a heavenly Zion, where the Lamb is the light in us, in these earthen vessels! The Spirit of God wrote the CHURCH a love letter in Isaiah 62, while comforting His people He spoke of the Church, prophetically, so we can rise up and know we will manifest HIM in the earth for we (the Church) is that enduring CITY, individually and collectively where the LAMB IS THE LIGHT! As there will be a city with HIM in it, when HE comes! I’m not one of those who looks at the spiritual only, because we live in a material world. Jesus came in the flesh, He is here in us, and He will soon return, and we shall be changed, when He does. In fact the word says:
… beloved believe not every spirit, for every spirit that believes not that Jesus is come in the flesh is not of God 1 John 4:2-3
We are spiritual Israel the people of HIS promise grafted in! He described us in Isaiah 60, and our commissioning in Isaiah 61!!! With out revelation of that (of who God says we are) that “the CHURCH (spiritual Israel) is ZION NOW, of Isaiah 62- even the by-product, virgin posterity, maiden daughter, of the original … daughters of Zion.
Those who came from us who do not continue in the faith, but who do co-mingle in this unholy union with death, (my people perish for lack of knowledge) produce dead religious works. This is death followed by hell in its purest form. There is nothing more dead than those who refuse to continue in the truth, in what God has done through Jesus Christ! And who we are in HIM! The physical City of David is an archeological wonder, of rock and dirt. The promise of God was that David would never lack an heir sitting on the Throne Of David. When we become a Christian, Christ the root of Jesse, lion of Judah, and Judge of Israel began to reign from the throne of our hearts. Christ in us the Hope and Glory. We are the fortress of David,
When we realize we are Zion in Isaiah 62 (the Lord said, “I’ll not rest until she receives the torch of her salvation!” then we will rejoice in understanding that Isaiah 60 is us now too, saying: arise and shine For your light has come! … Christ in us the hope and glory! That Isaiah 61 is our commissioning, (the Spirit of the Lord is upon me …) the works he did shall we do also. Study these three, put your hand on your heart and say, the Lord my God dwells in Zion!
Joel 3:17 I Am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion.
Isaiah 60:14 And they shall call you The City of the Lord,
Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
Psalm 132:13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling!
I want to say this, it doesn’t matter who will, or who won’t rise up and come along; for many, their mind sets, and their traditions, will get in the way! They will continue to serve a defeated Christ under the ordinances of men! Never moving beyond the more elementary provisions of the law. Forever preaching on sin, because they still stumble on that stumbling block themselves. Nothing will make you clean but trusting in the power of the blood of Jesus. If we are going to camp out in one place, let us camp beside this cleansing stream.
1 Peter 2:7-9 But to those who do not believe the stone the builders rejected has become the corner stone, “A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.” Because they do not obey His word .. But You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation …
But know this, the REMNANT has always been a straggling few, the marginalized, the disenfranchised; even as David’s band of brothers, whom knew God’s chosen, that were mighty warriors who won battles for the benefit of the reign of David. Great accomplishments for the kingdom of God will be won by those who believe in the power of Jesus Name! God reserves the most awesome battles for the smallest of armies. And has his 300 (type) in reserve; even HIS weaker vessels shall arise in this hour!
To Display His Power!
In a time when righteous judgment is needed in the land- God is calling, “Deborah, arise and go down. Bring this word to the commander of hosts …”
God used Deborah to take down the iron chariot army, that intimidated Israel, holding hostage (lands of promise) too long. These biblical and prophetic types are now IN CHRIST, and IN Christ Jesus there is no race or gender that is disqualified. Male or female Greek or Jew …. Those who rise up and join the faithful GET TO SHARE in Christ’s reward. I’m not waiting for NO ONE TO CATCH UP with me. That is the devil’s lie! Even Deborah’s Barak said, “If you go I will go.” And Barack was mentioned in the FAITH HALL OF FAME, listed as one who subdued kingdoms with the rest of God’s flawed, but faith filled valiant! He didn’t care about ego! The etymology of Deborah means BEE which is spoken as Devorah. It is the feminine form of davar, litterally meaning: Word! You see BARAK took the WORD OF THE LORD into battle with Him! So this nonsense regarding Barak being a coward is a spot and wrinkle in modern Christian teaching, needing ironed out once and for all! Barak was ORDAINED TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD with HIM TO BAttlE, and he did so prophetically when Deborah went with him! The ancient letter of Hebrews lists him in the Faith HALL of FAME, not shame! Let me tell you God gives that kind of warrior (who insists on the WORD with HIM in every battle) the blessing of thorough and accurate resolve. This kind – even this one of biblical acclaim Captain BARAK, isn’t just any HIGH level commander, He is a true defender of the faith that went out against that dreaded army of iron. Others avoided this same people before him. Certainly the early CHURCH regarded Barak well.
To demote such a man as so many have in their sermons and commentary, who have labeled him a coward for taking a woman to battle with him, lack in understanding, and have not “searched the matter out.” Erroneously, using this as a lesson that weak men need a Deborah. When actually God was revealing his might against a powerfully strong army. It was a house wife named Jael that took down its commander!
In the song of Deborah and Barak a GENERAL OF GOD’S ARMY, (who didn’t get there by weakness by the way) sang a song that GAVE all honor and glory to The Father, it wasn’t in him to get the glory, he just wanted the VICTORY, a woman getting praise for her bravery outshined Barak’s exploits, not because He was less of a man- but because the woman who killed the captain of the opposing army, Sisera, was A WOMAN in her home serving milk! It wasn’t even Deborah who was the hero in all of this but Jael! She utterly defeated the CAPTAIN of the army of of 900 iron CHARIOTS! That was the point!! Once again to remind the Children of Israel, The Lord thy God In the midst of thee is mighty! The week shall be strong, and it will go well with those that know how to give honor to the weaker vessel, for it is through them, He reveals HIS power. God has proven over and over again the battle is not to the swift or to the strong, but the battle belongs to the Lord! When they ask you who you are tell them: I Am ZION!! As Zion is in the midst of Jerusalem, so the Lord is in the midst of His people, the Lord God, in the midst of you is mighty! CHRIST in us the Hope and glory, and we are in Him abiding. He is our head and we are HIS body! WHO is Zion, who is Jerusalem? Who is the city where the LAMB is the light? I Am, WE ARE- You can call me ZION!
Again the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying, thus said the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury. Thus said the LORD; I am returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth …
Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.
As Mount Zion is in the midst of Jerusalem, so the Lord is in the midst of HIS people.
Wardrobe Of Readiness.
Does how we dress, sleep, and spend our time, have anything to do with our eternal destination? It’s all right here in my latest podcast.
Wardrobe Of Readiness.
My hope is that if you are a believer in the healing power of God, this article will encourage you and reinforce what you already know. That is, that Jesus settled the healing question by the work of the cross. If you debate that truth, don’t bother with me. I’m ruined, you can’t help me. There is nothing you can say or do to change my mind. We’ve seen it, heard it, and have handled it with our own two hands, the Word of Life. We have set our stakes in the promise land of healing. We have had our Jericho and our AI’s we’ve learned our lessons of faith, endurance, and trust. Our mandate has been go, drive out the inhabitants of the land, displace them, and take possession of that which belongs to the Child of God. For it is the children’s bread! The one who sits at the table of the Father. We take Luke 10:19 literally, “I have given you authority to tread upon scorpions and serpents and over all the power of the enemy, nothing by any means shall harm you.” And the last part of that scripture, that says rejoice not that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice rather, that your names our written in the Lambs book of Life. Our testimony to the Fire Wall of God!
Every true call of God begins with salvation- Passover. Enters into Pentecost- Fire. Then onto a journey of unbridled trust, and abandonment to God- Tabernacles.
Those who do not advance forward, through all of the above, become the former, who persecutes the latter. King Saul ended his journey plagued with stubborn disobedience. Unlike David who accomplished his journey with a correctable heart, in obedience to God. Saul, forgetting their common enemy relentlessly pursued David. At one time, David was as a son to Saul, one of his own household. They sat at the same table together. But Saul’s heart began to turn against David, the Lords anointed, until David’s life was in peril, and he had to go in hiding.
Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.”
1 Samuel 9-28 The Connection between Saul and David, Pentecost and Tabernacles.
As simple as I can put it, Saul was crowned king during Pentecost. Later, David, escaping Saul, did so in the tradition of the festival of booths. Hiding in the wilderness under an open heaven. The picture we have here is that the Pentecostal experience must keep moving forward as an unfolding movement, not a destination. It is not the end of the trail, to end all trails! Saul was sent to find his Father’s donkeys, during that time he crossed paths with Samuel and began to prophesy. The bible says this encounter began to change him! But Pentecost is a feast of first fruits, so Pentecostalism is only the beginning of the process. Tabernacles is an end of harvest celebration that is commemorated out doors as The Festival Of Booths. Reminding the Jews of the faithful provision of God in the wilderness. This process, this wilderness training, is needed for the saints of God to obtain the promised land of their inheritance. Entering into abundance while remembering who is the provider.
We see in this story in 1 Samuel beginning in chapter 9 that Saul became God’s anointed King, losing his crown to David because Saul supposed he could think for God and “fill in” for the priest, conducting his own sacrifice. In other words, he assumed an “I am all, be all attitude; David, immediately, there after, was anointed to replace Saul after this sin.
1Samuel 15:22-23 Has the Lord greater delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to HEED than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.”
It is an age old battle, and continuing saga illustrated in the story of David and Saul.
Allegorically, it’s reflected in many aspects of life where one authority has lost its crown and called to make room for another; from world dominions, to church sanctuaries, and beyond. More specifically where the Lord has departed from disobedience and has found a place for His Spirit to rest upon others, in their obedience. Where His favor has shifted, or His striving has lifted, from an unrepentant stiff necked soul, church, or nation. Of whom were given much in days gone by. It has a broad spectrum of application in its spiritual lessons from shepherds to kings.
For this narrative David’s character Is the one in Christ’s own image, even HIS CHURCH, as God’s anointed whom Christ is the head, yet who dwells (in these end times) as lambs among wolves, in a day of many towering steeples, under a Saulinian rule. Saul was chosen by God, anointed, he was head and shoulders above the rest in stature, a celebrated warrior King, full of destiny. But Saul disobeyed God.
This story played out in God’s own house when jealous Saul became embittered over the unlikely, rising star, David. Saul understood the favor David had with God, and man, because he once had it; sadly, he lost his privilege by disobeying the Lord and his commands, as if Saul’s judgements were superior to the Lord’s instructions. We see this same kind of attitude in what’s suppose to be Christ’s Church, when leadership attempts to handle the moves of God, and the manifestations of His Holy Spirit, according to their natural understanding. Often quenching the Spirit. On a much larger scale they do this according to their self organized counsels, posturing over manifestations of his presence, and outpourings of His Spirit, as if they were of their own making.
Supposing to preside over moves of God that are birthed from the unseen realm of the Spirit.
This Saul type wants David’s exploits counted as his own. He sees the Lord’s favor on him and knows not to trifle with David. Saul puts David in battle after battle to destroy him, but David wins because God is with him! While David is serving Saul, he is winning the favor of the people. Nothing Saul does against David works. His jealousy and anger invites an evil spirit into Saul, and now his work against David is empowered by the demonic. David finds it necessary to retreat from Saul’s growing opposition against him, as God’s anointed.
David, loving, gifted, beautiful David, slipped out of Saul’s grasp, and went hiding in the woods.
This story is not unlike those buffeted, persecuted, and martyred as John the Baptist, Elijah, and the saints of old; including reformers to this present age. Seeking refuge in the wilderness, in caves, in catacombs; those of whom the world was not worthy, fleeing lands, and property; going into hiding. Captured, jailed, like John the revelator. Martyred as John the Baptist, James, Peter, and Paul; later, reformists like William Tyndale, and Jan Hus who was burned at the stake. Non conformists who were ordered not to preach, imprisoned for obeying God rather than man. Such as John Bunyan of Pilgrim’s Progress, and George Fox who preached among the puritans in the colonies; among the Quakers who brought prison, and asylum reform, as well as education; who taught against oppression towards women, Native Americans, and slaves; who worked for the freedom of slaves.
These revolutionary, nonconformists, lovers of God; brought renewals, revivals, awakenings, and reformation, to the old and new world. In order to do so they went into Tabernacles.
Most importantly they brought freedom to the oppressed. But not with out a price. The old regime, the former moves of God- solidified into the monuments they do always seem to become, persecuting the prophets of (God ordained) change. These that do this cannot move on with the Spirit. Many even now, recognize manifestations of former glory, but slowly become strangers to the present glory of God who is a pillar of fire by night, and a cloud of glory by day, that was the Israelites day of Tabernacles! God himself leading them out as one massive river of people, ever moving the saints, by HIS Spirit onward and upward!
But this progression cannot be void of prophets, the more controversy we face in our life, the more abrupt the change, the more it is evident that we have NOT had that anointing operational in our midst. Seamless transitions to bigger and better tomorrow’s are made easier by the consistent work of a prophet’s anointing in the house. A house void of this anointing, set in the church, for a long period of time goes no where of any significance, and will begin to erupt with conflict and controversy when a true prophet comes to set among them.
It’s the difference between what is done when a house is under consistent maintenance or gross neglect. One is a smooth operation of transformation; however, the neglected house abruptly turns into a construction site.
Had the Body of Christ, simply been allowed to function freely in all its gifts and anointings the house would have been kept in impeccable care. One man, one platform, one microphone is not the body. Never was. Never will be. These Saulinian types often resist full body functionality, preaching against God’s prophet’s rather than for them. What ever the anointing is that has charge, under a Saulinian type, the higher anointings of greater service are consistently eliminated, until they are worked out the door. No one will ever achieve equal status, nor be mentored and released, for a similar work under the Saulinian type, unless full contribution and/or loyalty towards Saul’s achievements are rendered. Remember, Saul’s reign has no posterity. No one will take Saul’s place from his Saulinian line. When King Saul died, that enhanced operative to control, embitter, and batter, reserved itself for an end time seat, to reside over twice the sons of hell that he was. In religious Churchianity all over the world. Driving their Davids into Tabernacles, and reinforcing their Saul’s that hate them.
Saul and David is a whirl wind dynamic that began with the fall of man. No one is with out sin. However, some learn to live, happily, with the Spirit of Christ draining from them.
God in his mercy towards the sheep cycles in prophets, and then out again, at various stages of growth and maturity, in His attempt to shepherd his flock out from under the power and control of those whom increasingly find the Davidian company in the cross hairs of their own jealousy. While seeking to preserve and/or temper His prophets in patience, God releases them to seasons of seclusion in order to heal. While working for all to unify them with the rest of the body. We cannot blame true sheep for revolving doors, sheep are just looking for someone to lead and feed them, they are the first indicators of how barren the pasture may be, or scary it has become. In the same way we cannot blame prophets for retreating to their hiding place, under a hail of stone throwing. To the pharisees Jesus said, “You do always kill the prophets”.
The New Saulinian Establishment
This same Saulinian spirit, in this present generation, rides in on the anointing, while in the association of many prophets, and continues in office on a vapor, even while the lamp stand of the Lord is whisked away. This Saul is able to create an illusion of greatness and power, by form and font, by animation and mirage. By young admiring Davids lending enthusiasm, music, poetry, and song. While the warmth and glory of the Holy Spirit is subtly replaced by something “other” in these sanctuaries, so familiar to us all. It seems to have everything better, in this electronic age. Lighting, and digital media, displayed on monitors around the sanctuary. Electronic wind, waves, and fire subtly replacing God’s glory- His waves, His wind, His fire.
In these places a political current emerges where natural charisma, the smooth tongued, and flamboyance replaces appointments; persecuting genuine anointings, polluting the house where God’s power was once displayed, with a POLITICAL spirit. This begins with the same way it started with Saul.
Where David is a threat, yet a required asset to keep the lights on, and the passion burning. Devoted admiring young Davids love Jonathon and Saul. But, promotion and promises graduate to what serves Prophetic Saul best on the outward appearance, of his own reputation, rather than on the quality of the inward man, and God’s plan. It raises havoc against instruments of renewal, restoration, and deliverance. Releasing cycled intervals of expectation and hype; that rises and falls. Revolving doors that never stop sucking sheep, emotionally fleecing them, while they are rotating out, still looking for that green pasture, where they can belong, and offer their fleece for God’s glory. They are left exhausted of what is erroneously thought to be Christian service. Many institutions like this, and their leaderships are prisoners to what once was, serving the monument of yesterday’s former glories. Forgetting the God that breathed power into them.
They are worse than dead churches, most formal. In these pulsating, clamoring walls, where there are few lasting relationships nurtured beyond the foyers and parking lot … God is gone and no one notices.
While the remnant, seemingly, does not exist and this is taught to be so. That is too exclusionary! But, they do not perceive the hour and the season they are in. The Davidian remnant does as David in the territory of the Giants. Dominions are being displaced in the outskirts of the land belonging to heathen entities, David is taking them one village at a time from a stronghold resting in obscurity, because God is with HIS anointed.
1 Samuel 21 – Ahimelech the priest- David, fleeing from Saul, comes to the city of Nob.
Now David came to Nob, to Ahimelech the priest. And Ahimelech was afraid when he met David, and said to him, “Why are you alone, and no one is with you?” So David said to Ahimelech the priest, “The king has ordered me on some business, and said to me, ‘Do not let anyone know anything about the business on which I send you, or what I have commanded you.’ And I have directed my young men to such and such a place.’
Commentary described this as a lie, but was it? Who’s King David referring to? It seems to be Saul, but in this allegoric commentary it is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Calling the Church into hiding on an assignment. God is displacing the enemy, and no one knows. Not Saul, nor those great men of war near by. What plans and pursuits given to David and His band of brothers in hiding, belong to them to steward. David isn’t giving that away. For Saul is looking for David.
Promotion Comes From The Lord
As Pharaoh, Herod, and Saul, sought to slay God’s anointed in their youth, so this same spirit desires to destroy new beginnings and fresh anointings, in their infancy. What makes Saul’s form of betrayal in the Church more poignant is that Saul’s fellowship with David was once sweet, David loved Saul and Jonathan. At one time Saul called David his son, Jonathan’s soul entwined with David’s in brotherly love. Many destinies of those anointed have suffered the piercings of Saul’s jealous javelin, by believing this elite’s table is where their promotion comes, or where God is going to fulfill his plan with them. Enduring years of abuse, and promised rewards; as Saul promised David his daughter, only to give her to another- so this same kind of operative never delivers on promised platforms and promotions; but rather, when the time to deliver has come, jealous barbs like flying spears sail. For this Saul spirit recognizes the anointing that displaces him. David was empowered by God, His favor rested upon him.
He That Overcomes Will I Make
The furnace of much affliction has its chosen, for iron there is silver, for brass there is gold. Even David once sat at Saul’s table and served him. The Saul spirit does greater damage in the kingdom of God than Pharaoh’s magicians and Herod’s henchmen, for he understands prophetic accuracy. He knows exactly who has inherited his place, and he has them marked. Unlike Pharaoh and Herod who only knew by omens. Saul, recognized David’s anointing, for he once walked with God. It is far better to part company with Saul, and join David in obscurity, un wanted and unrecognized, than sitting as subjects of politically fueled religious associations. Where their own relevance is carefully guarded; seeing to it that new works, and the anointings that bring them in, never arise. That they never get past their infancy. Thank God for the reformers that threw off religious restraints, who brought forth the capacity for God to do a new thing in the earth. Thank God that He warns his anointed, for those Davids, who go hiding in the woods.
Among The Prophets
This anti type is a spirit that operates characteristically, as a Saulinian influence over many churches today. Saul who ran with a company of prophets, and even prophesied with them, before taking his position as King, started out right and went wrong. David was a prophetic psalmist set apart, as a shepherd, that God replaced Saul with. So it is not astounding that these two “types” are found in the camp of the prophetic, among the most prolific and apostolic moves among the nations, even now.
Those gifted by association and those gifted by grace. Even while Saul persude David to kill him, he couldn’t prophesy David’s demise. 1 Samual 19:24
when Saul happened upon the vicinity of Samual, Saul by association began to prophesy. Saul was asked of, “Is he a prophet as well?” Saul was moved by other prophet’s prophetic gift to prophesy, but that source was not with him, alone. As it is now many people have prophetic encounters, when in the company of strong prophetic anointing. That is why the camp of the prophetic is like no other camp, no other anointing can slip so easily into occult darkness than those who once walked in the presence of strong prophetic influences, as Saul had with his company of prophets, and his personal advisor Samuel. And then suddenly find themselves in the dark, when the Samuels and Davids of this world who are generators of that gift are gone. How can a young man searching the hillsides for his father’s donkeys, suddenly find himself as an anointed king graced with the spirit of prophecy, and favor- how can he not finish with great gratitude, and humility, for being chosen? Saul wanted a perpetual crown, perpetual power, and he could have had it. But Saul disregarded God’s anointed. The priest he assumed position of, and the king called to replace him.
Laying it down. Giving it up. Letting it die.
His reliance upon the power of his office, rather than the one who gave him that power displaced Saul’s crown, and transferred it to another.
Yes he was once the Lord’s anointed but no longer was he God’s chosen point man to get the job done for his people. Ministries, churches, and denominations, can thrive forever with out the spirit of Christ in them. The organization can run like a well oiled machine but what kind of oil is it? Synthetic or the crushed fruit from the pure vine? Processed and purified, this is the anointing that drips from the brow of those who seek Christ, rather than reputation. This the result of being set apart. This is David hiding in the Woods.
Draped In Controversy
Many have recognized the struggle between the anointed, who stands appointed and approved, and the anti anointed, un appointed, and unapproved. The Davidian anointing waits upon the Lord for promotion, and continues to pray for resolve … That God will handle the turmoil of the deposed, with His own right hand of RIGHTEOUSNESS while sparing His man or woman, that HE approved, in the controversy; as He did David. The bible tells us that offenses will come, but woe to him by whom they come. David and Saul were men among their own!
Still the principle is in play with a multi- faceted application. Who will wait upon the Lord, who will trust in Him, who will advance His kingdom? Who lives as His anointed, called, and chosen? The Church triumphant will emerge from obscurity and take the reigns of spiritual conquests in these end times. Saul, on the other hand, realizes His great error in a rude awakening after seeking a witch. But not soon enough.
You see, the most devastating error lies among those who have seen the power of God and have fallen away from it.
The evidence of His love, HIS hand in the supernatural. When the Spirit of God departs from such a one as he did Saul, who himself prophesied, and even couldn’t help from prophesying … Yet, in all of that Saul suffered in a famine of the WORD! God quit talking to him! Jonathan loved David, but continued his loyalty to Saul, his Father, as many offspring of Charismata movements do the same. They cannot depart from the amazing first house, the one becoming the stronghold of Saul.
This is much like those who beget sheep in a form that welcomes David’s worship- is enamored with him, but stays with the model that has all the bells and whistles, all the lights and glammer.
Saul’s legacy falls with him, as his posterity, as well. Nothing from his rule remains, that can stand, and continue, with David. The two shall not mingle. Jonathan’s dream to rule with David flys away, as he lies dead gathered with Saul. Far better it would have been for him to be with David; in the shadows of the rock, in the heat of the desert, rather than in Saul’s assembly; if only Jonathan, himself, went in hiding. He would have had to betray his heritage, but his heritage fell into error, and Jonathan would cling to both David and Saul. This is the fly that spoils a barrel of ointment. For this reason it would have been better for Jonathan to defect, and go into exile, leaving behind the polished world of Saul’s estate. To be with God’s anointed, the lowly shepherd King. With David hiding in the woods.
For this narrative, this allegory, the Saulinian rule is still at large among the religious elite today. Even among our prophetic circles, word oriented camps, worship and healing movements, born of the last century. These beautiful moves of God provided the Body of Christ with so much. Solidified into monuments of brick and mortar. A stone cold rigamortis, persecuting their Davids, and sealing the fate of their Jonathan’s.
Systemic Babylon, Saul’s Harlotry, And Anti-Christ
These systems blow around the globe like weather patterns shifting atmospheres in and out. David, God’s anointed, suddenly, un expectantly, encounters Saul. Saul is casing David’s movements from a far, his messengers feed Saul with updates he seeks to snare David with. He says to himself, “If I can only corner David in a city with gates and bars!” How much the institutional CHURCH desires to detain the Davidian Anointing! But, David retreats into the woods, the clefts of the mountains, the wilderness, and plains, where the warfare is on Heaven’s terms, he knows his hiding place is in God. There is no boundary of possibilities there, for hiding, for resting, for drinking from the cool springs in the garden of En Gedi; no wonder a water fall is named after him there. A place for God’s anointed far from the royal table from where he once fellowshipped with Saul, with in his walls. Apart, David lies low for planning, for watching through the trees, he studies the open landscape where he can see from where Saul’s men come, while he waits on God. DAVID is trusting the Father, among his band of brothers with him. David is hiding in the WOODS.
The Appointed Has Become The Imposter
The roll-out from Saul’s influence over to David’s full scope of authority breeds political persecution from the Saulinian regime that presents itself in the atmosphere of many Churches, today, and denominations in these end-times. Saul is warring against David. David’s headquarters are rustic, hidden; a hollowed ground by the tears of a psalmist who pulls on heaven above as his soul longs for God. The kingdom is in David’s hands, as is Saul’s life. Saul stands in a place that has been taken from him, in spirit; still, the Saulinian rule seems dressed, robed, crowned, and revered, while the dew of the morning wets the young King’s garments sleeping in the wilderness. Nevertheless, favor and the anointing rests on David. Of David’s own people, and of this world’s god, are the enemies of the Davidian reign.
Jesus said, If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. But, that doesn’t take away from Christ whom sits with heaven as HIS throne, no more than it takes away from the Lords feet, that rests upon its footstool, which is the earth.
The king “IS king” from crown to toe. Of him that is not recognized, of him that is persecuted in the earth, of him who has been rejected as David; the powerful warrior King, the one truly advancing the kingdom, will be revealed in the day of HIS appearing when He comes. Christ the head is crowned sitting upon His throne, His feet subduing the earth under the canopy of obscurity, one life, one village, one soul at a time. The Kingdom is not something that can be observed, let us go over here, let us find it over there. But like leaven in bread it rises and overcomes un observed. They that walk in the Spirit, that do not the works of the flesh advance the kingdom, every where the foot treads …
The Parable of the Leaven Mathew 13:33 Another parable He spoke to them: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.
Luke 17: 20-24 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst. And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it. And they shall say to you, See he’s here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them. For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
As David Did So Do We.
We sing, we dance, we wait on God to subdue our enemies before us. Saul will be dealt with by God, David will not touch Saul’s crown. He doesn’t have to. Saul is stirred by envy and jealousy, he is fixated on destroying David; yet, David’s worship once settled Saul’s soul. But, David cannot yield to Saul’s summons, his invitations to come and perform his music; to sit at Sauls table where Saul is the head-
Not because David cannot honor Saul, but because Saul cannot control his jealousy … David must remain in the woods, in the wilderness, in the caves, and bathe in the streams of the En Gedi.
God’s once appointed and anointed who set up his own altar, on his own terms now eyes his predecessor; while heaven is brass to Saul, and he begins to wonder after other voices for lack of hearing any more- Saul standing in the holy place, an ordained position in the office once graced with the decor of God’s favor from dominions to the altar of God- is now being defiled by a stranger, standing in the Holy place of seeking.
Out of desperation to hear from Heaven in a draught of HIS WORD … those standing in the same place as Saul, have turned to a spirit of divination, while all along persecuting the house of DAVID. Hoping David will seek the comforts of a city of gates and bars, not unlike our religious institutions rigid in form and formality, where the Saulinian rule can corner and counter God’s anointed vessel. A place that boasts of comforts, is designed to kill what sets apart David from Saul. But, David listens to the voice of the Father. David goes hiding in the woods.
The bricks, stones, and mortar of Saul’s empire in all its applications stands out the most in our denominations where the temple of the Holy Spirit is replaced by an institution, where His Spirit is no longer sought out, where His voice has been replaced by another. Where the very walls mock and persecute the lingering faithful … In every place the Holy Spirit is second to men and women who put their agenda above the Father’s. Still, David waits and accomplishes the Lord’s directives under the shadows from where he hides, dodging Saul’s campaigns while he battles the enemies of The Cross. The House of David moves like a river flowing seamlessly, as one, all the gifts and offices are in use. Each man and woman in their positions and call. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.
Extending the reach of the Father’s dominion, with a remnant of the broken; David, anointed to be king with the disparaged, and disenfranchised, waits upon the Lord, in obscurity, much like many of the saints down through the ages, of whom the world is not worthy; powerfully prophetic; amazingly apostolic; manifesting Christ in the earth.
A Mighty warrior, pursued relentlessly by a standing King from whom the Lord has departed, Ichabod! The remnant in these end-times is as David, and his rogue band of brothers. Dwelling as citizens of a kingdom hiding in plain sight. Ever increasing in glory and power. While Saul driven to madness searching a closed heaven, in a famine of the WORD, seeks out a dead prophet through the witch of Endor. Sealing his demise. He that despises God’s anointed seeking to confine him in a fortress of gates, and walls made of men; only desires to eliminate what he sees as a competitor. It was Saul’s delight to hear that David was in the city, he knew he could corner him there. Not unlike the walls of our own strong opinion where those called by God are held in captivity. Ruthless, religious cities, godless Christian institutions, heartless slave powered corporations, fleecing the people to keep their mammoth fortresses lit up, while making their disciples twice the sons of Hell, that they are. These raised up bearing Christ name who came out from us, but are not of us, are rather aligning themselves as associates of the Great Whore Babylon. The cry of the Father is, “Come out from her my people; why should you suffer in her judgments?”
Do you think there are not houses for God, even now, being conditioned to follow the voice of the stranger?
Still, the first to embrace David was Saul’s own offspring. This is that great decision, that exodus, the fleeing out of Babylon, before her fate is sealed. Finding true fellowship among the Davidian Company. Where the Lion of Judah prepares for his open reign beginning with the remnant. As King David was recognized first, of JUDAH, so the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, is revealed for all eyes to see Him, whom they have pierced; along with those who drank of HIS cup in the fellowship of HIS sufferings. Unfolding that which was concealed in the Old Testament, and revealed in the new. Israel will see HIM, and mourn for HIM.
Brought from obscurity, delivered from the grave, raised the third day … In His likeness God’s anointed knows rejection, knows well the clefts of the mountain. The hiding places, the caves, the woods, the deserts, and streams each place named; the Father’s favor and demonstration of power rests upon those who obey, for obedience is better than sacrifice, and seeking to be known by Yeshua, the God who Saves, is far better than to be known by reputation, title, or position.
Psalms 2:7-9 The Earth is the Lord’s
Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in!
Many have obtained greatness under the banner of the cross, but the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ resting in the clefts of the Rock, is triumphant and true, shrouded in the rolling mist of His glory, that pours down the ravines of the mountain of the Lord. From this place goes forth the dictates of HIS throne, the one whom the world hides from, is the one whom the remnant nation sits with, in high places. This place the Saulinian rule cannot obtain, cannot breach, cannot control, but has become disqualified in sharing in the bounty of David, his spoil. The kingdom of God so near, so wonderful, so great, visibly impacting the earth from unseen realms, peers through the eyes of the obedient saints, who reflect God’s glory.
Soon and very soon we shall see the King, and His anointed subduing dominions, the house of David, will no longer be hidden in the woods.
Nevertheless, as an ode to all former rivals that once cleaved to Christ, and came from those among His, the establishments, the denominations, and alliances; the beauty and honor of David’s lament mourns former friendship, companionship, and fellowship, that once was found in the House of Saul, in the early days of Charismata.
David’s Lament for Saul and Jonathan 2 Samual 19:17-27
David took up this lament concerning Saul and his son Jonathan, and he ordered that the people of Judah be taught this lament of the bow (it is written in the Book of Jashar):
“A gazelle[a] lies slain on your heights, Israel.
How the mighty have fallen!
“Tell it not in Gath,
proclaim it not in the streets of Ashkelon,
lest the daughters of the Philistines be glad,
lest the daughters of the uncircumcised rejoice.
“Mountains of Gilboa,
may you have neither dew nor rain,
may no showers fall on your terraced fields.
For there the shield of the mighty was despised,
the shield of Saul—no longer rubbed with oil.
“From the blood of the slain,
from the flesh of the mighty,
the bow of Jonathan did not turn back,
the sword of Saul did not return unsatisfied.
Saul and Jonathan—
in life they were loved and admired,
and in death they were not parted.
They were swifter than eagles,
they were stronger than lions.
“Daughters of Israel,
weep for Saul,
who clothed you in scarlet and finery,
who adorned your garments with ornaments of gold.
“How the mighty have fallen in battle!
Jonathan lies slain on your heights.
I grieve for you, Jonathan my brother;
you were very dear to me.
Your love for me was wonderful,
more wonderful than that of women.
“How the mighty have fallen!
The weapons of war have perished!”
There is this thing about prophetic scribing that is amazing to me, it has an element of timelessness. I was some where in my blog today. I don’t even know where. These two numbers came up and I thought of tomorrow’s date. Because it was. It was tomorrow’s date but of scripture. You’ll figure out the date I’m talking about in the text. But, I’m not wanting to date anything at the moment, because sometimes dating a scribal work can be distracting.
But any way, I read the two or three paragraphs and the Lord prompts me. He prompts me to repost it for today, tomorrow, and beyond for who ever needs it. It was a few paragraphs from an article that I landed on today doing some maintenance work on my website, and after the Lords urging, and the copy and paste, I lost it! But that’s fine I’m sure you or I can do some detective work and find it somewhere on the website. But, right now I’m wanting to release this word. Once again for another prophetic cycle- God is good. In Christ, and with love here we go!
But, many of my servants of late have said, “ Lord my budget is not being made!” If I am faithful and my servant falls short, time after time, than who is at fault? Will I not always provide for my own? If this is so than what endeavors have you taken on that I support not? If they are not supported, are they of mine, says the Lord? Has the world you are living in remained the same, that it is not due for adjustments? I have adjusted, I have led, I have appointed, says the Lord, have you followed?
Therefore, this is why many will only reflect upon my glory as a thing of the past, rather than a realty of the present. Where fanfare upon their arrival has been the order of the day, but the power will wane in time. Budget, conditions, and facility, has been the determiner of an acceptable path, rather than the perfect way.
For that way- I have not immediately disclosed the treasures of my kingdom found there, to glean from among you the glitter fly. For men and women are my treasures, and gold is still found in the mouth of the catch of the day, to pay your obligations. Be fishers of men, and I will show you the hidden pools. They are not found city to city, but from stream to stream, says the Lord.
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another …
A time will come when those who walk after the Spirit, will find themselves fishing from the streams of the desert, where Jackals still roam, says the Lord, in the minds of those I’ve called them to. To set a captive free while yet in captivity. These open doors, and pathways, will be for the wise not fools. The hidden will be made known to their brethren, and they shall return with a countenance of joy and reflections of my glory upon them. Seek the Ancient Path.
Seek the ancient paths.
Have you ever had a wild dream that seemed to go on and on like an epic movie, and when you woke up you thought about it for days wondering WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?? Maybe some of these dreams are the imagination of an avid movie goer, over stimulated by an action packed night of coke, popcorn, and adventure heroes. But WHAT IF you’re not an avid movie goer, but a prophetic prayer warrior? Joel 2 says GOD IS GOING TO POUR OUT HIS SPIRIT in the last days! Young and old, men and women, boys and girls, are going to PROPHESY, have DREAMS, and VISIONS, before the great and terrible days of the LORD! Recently I was going through my journal of dreams submitted for interpretation, and I ran across this one that I strongly felt was not only speaking to the dreamer but paralleling America, as well. The theme has to do with home invasions. What is remarkable is that one year later I myself would have an epic encounter in a vision of a home invasion, that revealed America would see a mass exodus of illegal aliens. This was in February of 2016, (It is published here at NWP) While at the same time doing the right thing by children. Called The Right Thing To Do.
Let me ask you something, if you had a huge pine tree cut down in your front yard while you were sleeping, do you think that would wake you up? AMERICA has been invaded and taken over by something other than herself, and we are just waking up to that reality. We are at a war at our very thresholds and only God can give us victory. Whether you get this prophetic process or not, whether you comprehend this prophetic dream or not, there is one thing you should take from it. We are in an era of great spiritual warfare that could very well manifest itself into an epic disaster for American lives, if we don’t get up and run to the battle, before that battle comes to our streets, our doors, and into our homes. SPIRIT WARS is an epic MOVIE that is not only COMING SOON, it is already here!
Dream interpretation should be subjected to a council of prophets where further instruction and ministry can be pursued. In that setting dreams, visions, prophecy and the gift of interpretation can be properly examined, reinforced, or discarded as error. Let the prophets speak and the others stand and judge. With God’s best for you at heart. In Christ. – dee barnes
Dreamer writes: Thank you so much for taking the time to pray and respond to my request! This has been very encouraging, and I will spend time reviewing this and praying into it and responding to the wisdom here! Yes, our family has undergone tremendous attack, but each day, I am drawing closer and closer to Jesus and being more encouraged to hang on and press through. Thank you so much again! My words just can’t express how much this has meant to me.
Intruder dream Feb 3, 2015
I dreamed I was at my parents’ old house in our old city, and I was having an adult slumber party with some of my girlfriends. We were set up in the living room with mattresses on the floor. It was dark out, but we had the lights on inside. An intruder burst in the front door – it was a home invasion – and he was armed and shot me in the right thigh. I went down, and he stayed a little bit, and then he left. As soon as he left, I was able to close the door and lock it. I looked out the window, and a big jack pine tree had been cut down in the front yard at some point, and there were some branches down in the yard still, and some chunk slices of the trunk by the front walk (like how you cut a tree for firewood). I went back to the mattress. I was looking at the mattress at where I had bled from being shot in the leg, and there was quite a bit of blood on it. I looked at my thigh, and I saw the wound, and I saw that the bullet was in there. It looked white.
The next part of the dream was that I was in the hospital in the waiting room, and my parents were there, and I distinctly remember my son, ——–, there, and I wanted him to take pictures, because I wanted to show them that you could see the bullet just inside the wound. I was trying to get my dad’s attention, too. I was sitting in the chair, and I spread opened the wound, which had started to stick shut, and there was a pod or pouch thing – a seed pod – that came out of the wound, and I kind of pulled it a bit, and it was growing as I was pulling it out. The seed pod became a big white daisy-like flower that I turned around – and I was making sure that my son was documenting it – and I turned the flower around, and the centre of the flower was where the seed pod was, it was getting bigger and bigger by the second. It was actually holding a baby. By this time, it was the size of my hand, and I was holding it in my hand, and I was holding it up for him to look at – “is it breathing? Do you think it’s breathing”? I put it close to his face to see, and he said, “No.” And I said, “It’s because it’s still attached to me placentally.”
Then they finally got me into an examination room, and they were trying to help me up on the bed, but by this time, the baby had grown so much that it was the size of a real baby. From the time it had first just popped out of my thigh wound to 5-10 minutes later, it was a full-sized baby. I got up on the bed, and I was just holding it at my leg, and yet, it was acknowledged that I had been shot, and it didn’t make sense how this baby was a part of it. Then somebody in the next bed asked, “Didn’t you see the intruder outside”? And I said, “No. If there was any inkling that there was an intruder at the window, I would have seen him.” Then, there was a window on the bottom right side of my bed near the floor, and there was someone there that grabbed my hand, and I shook it off. Then I noticed my old friend, ——was in another bed and she had just had another baby. In the dream, I was very firm that I had wanted my son to be the one to document this.
The response to this dream includes adjustments to broaden its application to include what I believe is prophetic insight for what America is facing now.
Not that your battles are uncommon because of neglect. For they are common reflecting our world we live in; what is uncommon, and heroic, is your response and faith because you are displaying that we are more than conquerors through CHRIST Jesus. These are extraordinary battles because of the threat our families are to the kingdom of darkness. Above all else we can be sure of this- Nothing can separate us from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus.
Future Blessings for Zion
“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgement you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD.
A dream that parallels the CHURCH in many ways in the light of these end times.
Beloved, this is a dream revealing spiritual warfare that transcends generationally, manifesting itself in your life time, simply, because the days are evil. It is a work of darkness that has been transpiring for a significant amount of time outside of the realm of discovery until it has come upon you, like a home invasion. Literally, like a thief in the night. What the enemy did to the tree outside is what the thief attempted to accomplish against your family on the inside. I see it as the same assignment he wishes to accomplish against the Church in America. This is warfare, a hit against your family line. Trees represent legacy and heritage.
The sleeping party (state of the Church) (celebratory yet sleeping) is the recently present state that this invader has intruded upon, where you have suddenly found yourself in a fight for your life, a massive amount of blood is lost, the girl friends represent many fellowships or Churches that are the sleeping PARTY type. The window provided spiritual watchfulness but no watchman was watching. In retrospect you discover (through prophetic sight-fullness) the degree of vulnerability your family has been suffering, this answers the question “No one heard a Jack Pine being fallen in the front yard, no one saw anything through the window?” We need to exchange our sleeping parties for a war party, whose watchman stand through the night, WATCHING.
Nevertheless, this home intrusion is behind you now. Getting shot in the thigh is a wound you were astonished at. You have suffered astonishment over much that has happened. It has caused you to require a season of rest and recovery, but you are witnessing a supernatural occurrence right before your eyes. What Satan has tried to hobble your strength with, to destroy you with (the white bullet). Though MEANT FOR HARM, it will only work for your good, as you continue in your faith in Christ. You are also standing in a forunner’s anointing in your personal resolve to overcome. This will show the way for the bulk of those around you (Body of Christ) who will experience a similar rude awakening on a much larger scale, corporately.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
Out of it comes supernatural, and miraculous New Life. The gestation of it will not be hidden from you, but present it self in the seen realm. Those with you will benefit from watching your rebound, as well. As you continue to nurture your own personal recovery you will grow in amazement, watching what God is performing before your very eyes. The flowering stage is the end game regarding this hit against the promises of God, the pod of seeds are presenting multiplied potential, nurturing new works, information, promise, and a cluster of giftings that will match and exceed the level of satanic Intel it takes to perform this kind of trespass against families of God. This is the Father accomplishing a spiritual work in you, that will benefit many.
Still, a battle presents itself, a spiritually discerned remnant of the battle remains. (Hand to hand combat at the window while in recovery.) Your next dream expounds upon the nature of that battle and updates you on how it is looking now, or what is needed to completely destroy this demonic power.
Every battle won is completed by captured armaments.This is understanding the technology of our enemies warfare. Be not ignorant of the devil’s devices. God is bringing light and strategy against the works of darkness.
Second dream: Windows and another home invasion attempt, battle at the window until the arm is all that remains, yet it too is overcome. Husband stops to seek knowledge during a lul in the fight scene when in the middle of the fight. Another Ameriican parallel? Another battle at the threshold of French doors where the dreamer makes the attempt to change or straighten a child’s crooked mouth before coming through the doors, but it’s not working.
French window door intrusions are battles coming out of the unseen realm and being discerned as the spiritual attack that they are, through prophetic sight-fullness, before they actually occur, through an open door. Warning for a face off.
This dream is one that is in a sleeping room, where a bed is. The difference in sleeping in your own bed rather then the living room (as before) is that this is a place you are suppose to be sleeping. This is resting in Christ, able to be alerted and readily available in that alertness. Unlike the first dream which was an eagle eye view of living in a state of slumber (mattress in the living room) a perfect picture of the present Church in many ways. A multi dimensional view of what was, is, and the victory that is to come (as you continue in Christ) as the Church, herself, awakens into watchfulness and prayer. French windows are often windows that open like doors. Because this beast is finding its way through a windowed door, this window type displays a port of entry rather than a break in, this demon has found a door to enter in. It is being resisted, and identified, and you are being prophetically shown where you are at in this warfare. Again, the Church needs this kind of discernment, America needs it, as well. For even France itself is battling a home invasion, seeking to destroy cultural peace.
The king pin (muscle head) that presented itself through the windowed door is wrestled out, but there is more to resist, and understanding to gain. The room is woody and rustic because you are fighting a battle with eternal consequences in a temporary world that is perishing. Still, the most difficult part of the battle is in recess. Don’t let up, this intruder is nearly defeated in his assignment. Your spiritual work in warfare has wrought much victory, your husband seeking knowledge is a vital part. ( Or, knowledge seeking on your part.) Between the two types of warfare- prayer and the acquisition of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, this devil that seeks to kill, steal, and destroy, will be defeated. You will overcome by the BLOOD of the LAMB and by the WORD of your TESTIMONY.
Had this beast’s leg remained it would have meant he was rendered disabled.
You would have approached it and simply threw him the rest of the way out. Not so with the arm. The arm and hand is still able to seize you if an approach is not well thought out. But, because his arm remains it indicates the need for skill and strategy to rid its presence permanently. These things come not out but by fasting and prayer. Fasting and prayer takes us beyond natural understanding into super natural KNOWINGS and war room strategy. This here is that, through your supplications, prayers, and intercessions God answers us by revelation, knowledge, and understanding, often times through dreams and visions.
A Common Thread
The dreamer sees family passing through the French doors, back and forth where a battle once ensued. At one point a child’s mouth was crooked and she tried to force her mouth straight to no avail. Once again families will freely come and go, but attitudes will still need to be changed.
The third dream is revealing realtime prophetic encounters where familial interaction is passing back and fourth through the windowed doors. You are displaying powerful prophetic sight-fulness in these dreams. They have the potential to solve dilemmas. Here we see a cosmetic suggestion to make the issue better, but understanding the cause of why the child’s mouth is askew is overlooked, again the need to seek knowledge regarding the root of the issue. The Lord desires to perfect you in your spiritual gifting by adding to your prophetic gift words of wisdom, and a greater measure of spiritual understanding, again this may come through your husband as you co- labor, with him in Christ. Your approach to a problem, together, may bring a balanced resolve. As you pray and as he is in the word. Again, America needs to discern the deep issues coming in and out of her open doors, guarding transactions with a spirit of wisdom, and discernment which falls under that category, because what has been coming through America and Europe has not voiced themselves as in allegiance, or alignment, to cultural norms and standards. But rather, has begun to change them.
Indeed God speaks once, Or twice, yet no one notices it. In a dream, a vision of the night, when sound sleep falls on men, While they slumber in their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction …
With this cluster of giftings together spiritual maintenance will ensure joy and peace for the generation to come, rather than fending off battles no one sees coming until it is nearly to late. Not that your battles are uncommon all because of neglect, for they are common reflecting our world we live in, what is uncommon is your response and faith to rise up because we are more than conquerors through CHRIST Jesus. They are extraordinary battles because of the threat your family (and the Chrisitan family of God) is to the kingdom of darkness, therefore you are wanted dead or alive. Fight the good fight, and having done all continue to stand, HIS yoke is easy HIS burden is light. His rest is supernaturally refreshing, while our eyes are wide open. I want to say this to Christian America, as well, for her importance to the family of man in the days to come.
The last dream you will be encouraging renewal and restoration from loss endured by your heritage where battles have warn them down. So, this is you believing God for the security of your inheritance, posterity, and family legacy. With celebrated joy.
Zion’s Glory and New Name, Isaiah 62
For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep quiet,
Until her righteousness goes forth like brightness,
And her salvation like a torch that is burning.
The nations will see your righteousness,
And all kings your glory;
And you will be called by a new name
Which the mouth of the LORD will designate.
You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD,
And a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
It will no longer be said to you, “Forsaken,”
Nor to your land will it any longer be said, “Desolate”;
But you will be called, “My delight is in her,”
And your land, “Married”;
For the LORD delights in you,
And to Him your land will be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin,
So your sons will marry you;
And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
So your God will rejoice over you.
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen;
All day and all night they will never keep silent.
You who remind the LORD, take no rest for yourselves;
And give Him no rest until He establishes
And makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
The LORD has sworn by His right hand and by His strong arm,
“I will never again give your grain as food for your enemies;
Nor will foreigners drink your new wine for which you have labored.”
But those who garner it will eat it and praise the LORD;
And those who gather it will drink it in the courts of My sanctuary.
Go through, go through the gates,
Clear the way for the people;
Build up, build up the highway,
Remove the stones, lift up a standard over the peoples.
Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth,
Say to the daughter of Zion, “Lo, your salvation comes;
Behold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.”
And they will call them, “The holy people,
The redeemed of the LORD”;
And you will be called, “Sought out, a city not forsaken.”

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.
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.
