It began with a dream I wrote an article on (almost 2 years ago) called: A City In Asia. In this dream I stood in an empty street, that was once teeming with people, and food vendors. The street vendors were gone, and not a soul could be seen. In the dream the Holy Spirit began to speak to me about not going out, but to prepare for staying in, and eating in, for an indefinite amount of time. We now call it sheltering in place, later this practice actually began in China as a result of COVID-19. I then had another dream I call- Incoming, it was last summer, where a small army of health care professionals stood with their scrubs on, standing in the ER waiting room, waiting for a driver to bring the patient into the emergency room, but the driver stopped as close to the doors as possible, got out, and ran away! I never published this dream but my prayer group knows it well. Over a month ago I have another dream. Walking through thrift stores and flea markets, and finding discarded wallets everywhere. What’s more telling is what was left in the wallets, and seemingly discarded with them. As world events unfold- I see how all of these dreams are related. Jesus gave us a blue print on how to navigate through the times we are in right now, and its recorded in all four gospels. I share it in this podcast called Tossing Wallets.
In Pursuit Of Perfect Love.
Because perfect love casts out fear.
In The Spirit And PoweR of The mob. By Deana Barnes.
Some seed fell upon good ground. Good fruit develops from a planting in good ground. This ground is described in Luke 8:15.
The seed that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, KEEP it and bear fruit with patience.
A noble and good heart is one who has responded to the drawing of the Holy Spirit. One who hungers and thirsts after righteousness. The Holy Spirit preps our heart to receive God’s word, and breaks up hard ground. His love and unmerited favor or GRACE, is like the sun and rain that nourishes what He has planted in it. The Holy Spirit exposes stones, snags, and roots, in order to make room for the WORD so it can develop fruit and flourish. This work of GOD comes by invitation. Psalm 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
The Father has drawn us to Him, but our lack of faith can be an inhibitor of growth. Many on their own decide how much truth they are willing to walk in. We can allow the traditions and philosophies of men to take up ground and mingle like weeds in the garden of our understanding. This limits spiritual productivity and can even choke it out. By not applying the word of God in prayer and meditation, and rightly dividing the word of truth. Many gather together in a culture of compromise and reinforce it by doing so. Among the weeds are circumstantial offences (like seeds) that grow into resentment. While the root is bitterness the fruit is often division, strife, and every evil work. Springing out when we neglect our time and intimacy with the Father, in prayer, and meditation on His word, and the examination of our own thoughts and motives. This is where we cast down those things that are in conflict with the nature of Christ in us. Otherwise, weed seeds grow and bitterness and resentment flourish. Generational root systems take their predominance, and eventually we are repeating history all over again. Have you ever seen root growth from the old stump of an otherwise dead fruit tree? It’s called a sucker plant and all it does is rob trees around it of nutrients from the soil. It’s a wild out of control sapling, and that’s what it looks like when we are not practicing self control. All our actions do in the condition of lacking self control, is rob us from growth and fruit development. It is no different than being tossed about on every wind of doctrine, both of these metaphors are the same, such a person as these are carried about, and influenced, by the Prince and Power of the air. Self control is the key to everything, second to love.
Doing, the word. Being a doer of the word is not about hyper activity in good works, as much as it is doing all we can to cultivate and nurture, Christ in us the Hope and glory, and present Him to the world around us. His character, His anointing, His authority, and power. In THAT, we are able to fulfill the great commission making disciples of all nations. Preaching the word with signs and wonders following those, that believe in His name.
Many in the church (because of what is being cultivated in the heart) have migrated over to activism, in order to have an impact on their community.
This is the power of the mob in the arm of the flesh, to change the world.
This was the same counter active spirit among the Jews that operated in Jesus day. They were looking for a political savior that would gather the sword, and defeat the Roman occupation of Jerusalem. Often Jesus had to address that spirit when it crept in among His disciples, telling them, ”You know NOT what spirit you are of.” This is true today, there are those among us who call themselves disciples of Christ that find commonality in the bitter roots of todays political climate. Because of that we can move in and out (of the influence) of the spirit and power of the air, based on what has residence in our heart and is leaving its residue on are garment! The garment that is suppose to be in the process of becoming spotless! We’ve got to wake up to the witness of the Holy Spirit! What is growing inside of us? Either a spirit of resentment and bitterness, enrolled into todays political atmosphere, that supports the arm of the flesh, or the Holy Ghost-anointing that graces the mandate of ambassadorship. Which melts off the mob mentality.
Just as John The Baptist asked (while in prison) are you the one or shall we look for another? Jesus told John’s disciples to go back and testify to him the works they saw Jesus do. Jesus was a healer. Not an activist. His kingdom was not of this world, and so neither is ours. He finished his message to John saying this: Blessed are they that are not offended in me! Blessed are they that do not take offence when His men and women are busy about the Father’s business of the Kingdom, rather than political activism, that often requires a bipolar mentality because these things change and shift with the currents of the wind. Our political opinion can find itself derailed because it’s based on the good behavior of fallen men and women. Who can be heroes for a season and zeros in another. Like I always say, no matter who you waltz with in politics, it will turn into a twist with Leviathan before the night is through. That is the nature of the beast.
Many laws meant to protect us by a good government, ensnares us in the hands of an evil regime. But the mandate of Christ has not changed for over 2000 years. The Jews of Jesus time didn’t know who they were looking for when they were looking for the Messiah. John did, He was the forerunner of Jesus in the spirit of Elijah. But, look at this, John was in prison, He knew of the works Jesus had done, but still John questioned him under the hardship of his imprisonment. Something many under that same mantle that John carried, will struggle with in perilous times. The mantle that now goes before the coming of the Lord, in the spirit of Elijah, upon the Church. Many will become disillusioned in the same way. How can such destiny in us and among us, still not have impact against the evils of Herod today? The answer is not taking political control. The answer is the power that is in the Gospel of Jesus Christ to save, and the demonstration of it. That is the key, everything else we do to change our world beyond that is shifting sand. Whole cities change their political atmosphere when impacted by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is how we overcome the world. As Jesus answered John, so that same answer should shake us out of the arena of political activism and re align us back to where our focus should be, as true disciples doing what Jesus did!
Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, and said to him, Are you he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said to them, Go and show John again those things which you do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. Blessed is he that is not offended in me.
We are Christ manifested in the earth. The mandate remains the same. It is the only thing that will hasten His return to rule and reign. Blessed are they who are not offended in Him! Herod tolerated John, but his appitites and unholy agreements snared Harod into killing him. This is the same spirit of the age we are living in now. You cannot entertain it, you can not train it to work for you. It is in the nature of the beast to pursue power, above all else, and extinguish what will displace it. Remember, that same spirit went after Christ and killed all the children under 2 years of age in Bethlehem, jealously seeking out what one day will replace it.
Witnessing to All Nations
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved. If we are found doing what Jesus commissioned us to do .. not just talking about, not just writing books about it, but actually doing it, than we have nothing to be ashamed of, in His appearing. In us He will find faith in the earth! Praise God, let it be so! Amen.
“For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind”
A word for 2017 originally published Dec 23rd in podcast format.
Dodging the bullet in time to pass through the eye of the storm, these are the days of the whirl wind harvest. While droves become corrupted and led astray by words of flattery, the people that KNOW there God will do great exploits accomplishing acts of valor, motivated by love. For they that wait upon the Lord (in patient endurance) shall rise up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Tomorrow will not be possessed by the cowardly of heart, but the night will be overcome by those who endure in long suffering, it is they that will be as columns bearing up the portico of the TEMPLE of our God.
Of those KEEPING THE WORD OF HIS PATIENCE
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. [leading you to the renouncement of your faith] Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
The vision behind Year of the SONS
It has been nearly two years (February 18, 2015) when the Lord gave me a vision that deeply impacted the scribing of a word that had been rolling around in my spirit for several weeks. What was remarkable about that vision was who we had been in intercession for, at the moment I had it. Normally, I have several articles in waiting on any given day, some outlined months in advance before publishing. This one was unique as I will explain more on that later.
On the day of the vision, I happened to notice a prayer request for our brother in Christ (John Paul Jackson), that he was in much need of prayer. Though we were not close followers or partners of our brother’s ministry, we knew of him and surly shared in the blessings his life was, to the body of Christ. This is the rest of the untold story on the article (linked below) called Year Of The Sons.
“I walked back into my prayer room after being notified by my daughter
that John Paul Jackson was in need of urgent prayer from the family of
After spending a lengthy amount of time praying, the Lord gave
me a vision.
I saw a feather pen with a beautiful white plume that curled
at the ends. It was very elegant looking. I then saw the pen and ink set
to parchment paper as if a writer was going to begin writing. I felt such
a strong anointing during that time of prayer, that I rested in it for quit
some time and it remained on me for the rest of that afternoon. Because
I was praying for John Paul Jackson, I BELIEVED God was showing
me our brother in the Lord would not die, but live, because I heard the
FATHER say: “There is more.” I returned back to what I was doing
before the phone call, writing YEAR of the SONS. This is that, posted
at the link below. During that time, what I didn’t know was that our brother Paul
had gone home to be with the Lord. I was given a beautiful
conformation of what was on the Father’s mind when I saw a video tape
of what appeared to be brother Jackson’s last message that he wanted
us to remember.
He spoke of THE HEART of the FATHER.
I have never written anything so easily in my life-
that day in February almost
two years ago. I’ve never publicly spoke of this until now. The words
flowed off the pen, so to speak. I actually thought at the time it was
because I was enjoying a residual anointing that fell during the
intercession for John Paul Jackson. What I now know is that the Holy
Spirit was bridging a continuum of the ELIJAH INITIATIVE out lined
by our brother’s last message, and penned in detail by this amazing
encounter- through the prophetic gift of the HOLY GHOST! When God
told me “There is more”, it wasn’t because Brother Jackson didn’t
complete his call, it was because the Body of Christ is called to
complete a mandate come from HEAVEN.
The Mandate Remains
The Great Day of the Lord “Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD. “He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.”
What an incredible conformation John Paul Jackson’s video was, as well as a very beautiful good bye. I wanted to share now, as time has passed a little … The rest of the story behind the prophetic word: Year Of The Sons, and its connection with the vision given while praying for our brother; where we believe the Spirit of the Lord details further, upon the FATHER’S HEART anointing- demonstrated by Brother John Paul Jackson, in what has become one of his most loving last words, that are out there. With renewed conviction we move forward with the commission of the Lord Jesus Christ, to preach the Kingdom of God in the Father’s Heart Anointing, based on the clarion call of Malachi 4:5-6 in these end times. See the following link for Year Of The Sons.
The Father’s Heart Anointing
“In my House I am the head; a husband and a Father, I will watch over my word to perform it, though this generation of fathers have not turned to their sons and daughters, I will,” Says the Lord.
The Church is coming into her order, the Father’s house shall no longer look like the institutions of this world, but rather is parting from them. I kept running across the scripture that says, Many women will surround one man and beg for him to give her his name. And again, Many are the children of the destitute, and the widow. The Spirit of the Lord is saying to HIS people, “They will come to me to take my name.” I could hear the voice of the Father weeping over His SONS, WHO HAVE NO FATHER but GOD. Of course this means for HIS daughters, as well; but, again the Lord didn’t allow me to change the wording to a more inclusive language.
So, once again He is raising up His voice in the land, by the spirit of the prophet Elijah, where the hearts of the Father’s are being called to turn toward their children. The five fold ministry will be the instrument to voice this cry. This is the message promised by God to be prevalent in the end times, so it is only natural we are approaching another generation declaring an Elijah initiative, once again.
In this comes forth the anointing to gather sons and daughters to the Father’s House, doubled up in portion for these end times that many KINGDOM MEN, and WOMEN, who have never had children of their own, even those newly called, will minister under a FATHER’S HEART anointing. With this impartation will families be able to prevail against a spirit of division, and divorce, that plagues the Church and is a root of violence in the land. Every true and Godly man will find his greatest impact to the lost, among the fatherless.
“Upon this ROCK I will build my Church.” PETRA, loveth thou me? Feed my lambs.” – Jesus
The Body of Christ as a whole, come together, shall BE the Father’s House in the spirit of unity. From this is where the fatherless will be instructed by the anointing of God; nourished, fed, and made strong of spirit. This will LIFT AN ORPHAN MINDSET off of entire communities to the degree and measure of the influence of the saints with in that community, who are abiding in the Father’s love.
Men and women in ministry will be enabled to support, facilitate, instruct, and guide operatives, that will accomplish the Father’s Love in this Kingdom of God work. Kingdom brothers, will teach fatherless sons practical skills that will benefit their family, and keep them from the foster care of street savages. This kind of ministry will be an apprenticeship for manhood, it will reconstruct broken and abandoned homes, and will be from where the spirit of adoption will be heard crying out to their Abba Father, glorifying His name.
I And My Father Are One -Jesus
This kind of outreach will unveil the power of the prodigal coming home. the Body of Christ, (beginning in seed form) will bring forth that day (even through the darkest of nights) known as the RESTORATION of all things. ITS FRUIT will be seen flourishing in the days of our SHABBOT SHALOM. What ever venue it is in Christ, ministries will serve the Father’s Heart, there is no male or female, Greek or Jew, of them whom are in Christ, in this matter.
The mantel borne up on the men and women of God, who carry the Elijah anointing, will impart the message and mandate to the hearts of the fathers that will turn the most selfish of men towards their sons, and daughters. Remember, the anointing breaks the yoke. Men in the faith will begin to minister on an entirely new level of authority. Their anointing to lead, will be so undeniable at times, that they will find themselves easily bringing order into circumstances that were chronically in chaos, even in secular communities, impacting the nations where ever the Christian family resides.
The Proverbs 31 Church
The nature of the Lamb’s wife towards her husband, and her delegated authority in the earth (that religion cannot comprehend, yet, is clearly outlined in proverbs 31) will continue to progress as we, the body of CHRIST, grow up into our head. This role of the Church will take on greater dimension. Of course, religion oppresses the woman’s true role ordained by God because the one who hates the seed of the woman desires to diminish her authority in the earth, because her true position in the covenant of marriage, as an overseer of her household (with full authority to run it), represents the Church. To see the married wife as God designed displays the power of God resting upon CHRIST Church. Her virtue, wisdom, and kindness. Her authority over matters of the home front in Christ. Her benevolence to the orphan and widow.
The order of the Father’s house releases her into her proper place and value, displaying the Church as a covenant partner, and helpmate unto the SON. HER husband sits at the gate of the city, among the wise, to judge the matters of men. The proverbs 31 Church, has no lack because of her industry and due diligence as an overseer of the household that bears HER husband’s name. JESUS is the head of the CHURCH. And JESUS is the fullness of he GODHEAD bodily. With in that household is the womb and cradle of destiny.
Wisdom in Government will be the Church’s outreach solving complex problems for those that seek out Christ’s Church, and Why? Because this proverbs 31 Lady has a husband who was the given son:
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
…These are the DAYS of ELIJAH. THEREFORE these are the days where Father’s are being called to turn their hearts toward their children. This will only be seen of those who are in the SON. If you have seen the SON, you have seen the FATHER, also. THOSE who reject this clarion call will be smitten with a curse, upon their land. According to Malachi 4:6.
The HOUSE is a HOME
In this increasing darkness the HEARTH fires of our HOME with the FATHER, will be the light and the glow emanating from the face and the eyes of the faithful. PIERCING through this present darkness of the end times. Revealing the son, unto HIS APPEARING. They will know HIM when they see HIM, because the PEOPLE of THE CROSS have been revealing JESUS all along, (the one whom they have pierced) through the Father’s heart. Evil in the earth will intensify but it will only magnify the glory of God, even greater. The spirit of Glory rests upon persecuted believers. 1Peter 4:14
In this season now, longstanding wounds will be mended between Fathers, and their sons, and daughters, who have entered in the New Birth, and walk in The Way. This is for those that yield to the Spirit Of Elijah resting upon the Church, corporately, as a message heard in the Land. ELIJAH MEANS JEHOVAH IS OUR GOD. I couldn’t help but wonder how all this could be, in a time when we were warned by Jesus that whole households would be divided over His name. Still, He reminded me where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty, no matter what HIS WORD is accomplishing among men, even dividing between them … the Spirit and the Word are LIBERATORS of oppression, therefore the Church is also! For HIs Spirit is in us, and Christ who was the WORD MADE FLESH, is the HEAD of the Church.
A heart that purposes his own ways to benefit the next generation, will not sell them to servitude. But, will pay the price, in their life time to make a better tomorrow. This is what TURNING the FATHER’S HEART toward their CHILDREN looks like. It will be the crowning nature of that which shall showcase the Kingdom of God, as the Lamb’s betrothed makes herself ready, and honors her head. By looking deep into the SON we will find the heart of the Father.
“Suffer the little children to come to me, and forbid them not, for of such is the KINGDOM of GOD.” -Jesus
I saw the Lord Jesus lying in HIS burial cloth.
The misery of HIS crucifixion stained him with blood from head to toe. When I have seen pictures or paintings of the representation of our Lord after HIS crucifixion, and before His burial, I looked upon these images as an artists interpretation of what our LORD went through. I have rarely thought upon these things, choosing to celebrate the risen Christ, and the power of HIS resurrection.
But, recently, these images came to my mind. One stood out to me resembling the 3D image of the Shroud of Turin that many scientist concur are of a crucified man in the aftermath of a Roman execution. I looked upon this image and before my eyes it took on another dimension. For the first time ever, I saw the CHRIST, our Lord JESUS, as if He were a Son. I was set back by this. I saw Him as a mother would see her own son, I squeezed my eyes closed to chase away the thought, but this realization of the crucified Jesus, being a Mother’s child as if He were mine, and a Fathers Son, as if He was my own son, was more than I could bear.
It impacted me greatly being the Mother of two sons, one at the age of CHRIST, when He was crucified. I looked upon the Lord, in my vision, in that place after His death, upon his tortured body, and it broke my heart. I felt a moment of what Mary must have felt. The FATHER THEN SPOKE to me and said, “Now you know, how much I love my sons and daughters, that I would give my only begotten son for them.
I’ve had this awareness before; but, nothing even close to what I experienced that day. I felt the Father’s Heart toward his sons, and his daughters, and began to understand a little more about the cost of redemption. I felt this in away that only a mother of adult sons endeavouring with all their heart to be descent men, could understand. Jesus gave His life, laid it down in being an obedient son. HE LOVED NOT HIS LIFE UNTO DEATH.
Mary endured the horror of what was happening to her child, rather than escaping it, for this one hope- that her absence would not add to His pain, and that her presence would some how ease it. This is where restoration begins. It must begin in the hearts of moms and dads broken and turned towards their children. All of sin, and its treachery was laid upon Mary’s good son.
This work of the KINGDOM OF GOD HAS BEEN initiated through “GOD’S HOUSE of PRAYER for all NATIONS.” Though many may not have understood the CRY of the SPIRIT that ushered in the ELIJAH ANOINTING, lo these many YEARS, for the preparation of these end times; but, now the CUP of many tears is approaching ITS BRIM of a fatherless generation. The green tree now dry, of all such times. And so in the cycle of that which was, is, and is to come, the Spirit of Elijah has come, and the Church who has ears to hear will be of those in this hour spoken of in Malachi:
The Great Day of the Lord
“Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD. He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.
This I hear the Father say, is the year where I Am Visiting the HEART of MEN, for the benefit of their sons. (And daughters.)
Beloved does the spirit of the prophet Elijah rest upon you?
… these men revile the things which they do not understand; and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed. Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.…These are the men who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever. It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones.
In the Church, shadows are diminishing, so with them shades of grey. They that love the shadows, and live in flickering casts of light, even in the spectrum of those variances… are they who love darkness. This is what we have before us in these days, gathering shadows going into the night, while the light of the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, surges ever brighter. Isaiah 60. I’ve said this once before in another publication and I’ll say it again, CHRIST Church will be astounded at who will walk out of darkness, right before their eyes, and greet them as they step into the Kingdom of God’s dear SON! At the same time we will be awestruck at those we thought we knew stepping out of that brightness, and glory, to fade into the night. The time has come and we are in it. Right in the middle of it.
Prayerfully, intercessors will delay some judgements earmarked for this coming fall, while a pressing disease will be battled at every portal and border seeking immunity of our immune system. Defying logic, we will make strides in immune system health but fail to carry this same design of defence over to our nation’s borders. This malignancy of profound blindness, coexisting with the all seeing electronic eye will continue to astonish those who have eyes to see, and ears to hear. There are no walls to breach, nor watchman to set them on, no stealth is needed to enter the lazy ports. The trespassers, who violate the law, have no inner restraints. Will they not easily join up with lawlessness that plagues the land, already?
If continual prayer and fasting does not prevail, this will be the enemy that hides among us. A foreign set of ideals to flare up against our own when we stand for those ideals in America. Likewise, and equally alarming, our foreign policy in the Middle East will need prayer, without end, throughout the spring of 2015 and beyond, as war looms on the horizon. This as the 100 year anniversary of World War I approaches us with a similar occurrence of a total eclipse due August 21, 2017 A Total Solar Eclipse similar to the one that tracked across the U.S., in the same way June 8, 1918. Just a few months after America’s entry in the war, and the onslaught of the Spanish Flu pandemic, that took over 500,000 American lives. Is America cycling into another pattern of wars and pandemics, accented by blood moons, and solar eclipses? Joel 2 …And there shall be signs in the heavens and the earth …
Two years and three months ago, in a dream that announced Obama’s second term, I saw Syria flare up in the Middle East and bleed into all the countries it has now, Turkey, Iraq, Iran. Even beneath, below, above, and side to side of it. While the American Bald Eagle found itself in the form of Obama, lying motionless on its back in the sand. This dream is how the Lord revealed to me that Mr. Obama would be elected a second term, which has been documented on various prophetic sites, just prior to his election. More recently, another prophetic marker mentioned in the article makes its appearance, this regards our foreign policy dealing with Cuba. Right after Cuba is seen in the dream, the American Bald Eagle in the Form of President Obama runs out toward the middle of the Middle East. You will have to click the link below to read about this prophetic dream. There you will see where we are at in the time line because of the mention of Cuba and the blow back we seem to be suffering regarding Libya’s Gaddafi, right now.
This for me, highlighted once again, the accuracy of this dream given to me October 17, 2012. Called Strange Bird Obama’s Second Term. As best as I could tell the time line for what could be a grave military failure, or, a foreign policy disaster taking place right in the center of the Middle East, is landing in the middle of President Obama’s second term. Because I believe (nourish the expectation) that God raises up intercessors to pray for governments and nations in order to save lives. He doesn’t give us dreams to entertain us. But, desires that we would partner with HIM in these end-times, for the saving of the lost. He did with Nineveh and Sodom and Gomorrah. The Spirit of the Lord let his friends in on what is coming, like He did with Abraham, who was a friend to God, and like Jesus did with His disciples warning them of the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. They were his disciples and companions.
God sent Jonah to warn Nineveh because HIS heart was moved with compassion over all the innocents in the land. They responded to Jonah’s preaching, and judgement was delayed. We are moving toward something so big, it is beyond our understanding; but, we know it intuitively. Surely, God does nothing with out revealing it to His prophets before hand. Many, still do not understand the gravity and responsibility of that privilege. Jesus told the disciples to pray their flight would not be in winter, for then tribulation like no other would be suffered, nothing like it ever known. Should we pray any less, for now the green tree has become dry?
Yet, we are those ones referred to by Daniel, (even those found through out the entire age of the Church) who did/ and shall do great exploits, that is THEY WHO KNOW THEIR GOD! Last week I specifically asked the Father to turn over certain high profile injustices that I felt fed-up with in my spirit. He answered that prayer so specifically, I could not deny that my intercession was heard by God in this matter. He is waiting for us to partnership with HIM and become a part of the 2nd Book of Acts, in these end-tiimes. We are seeing storms deferred, as well as draughts lifted, and crop yields improve, rather than fail as predicted. God is able to make a difference through us if we will stand up and be the Church Triumphant!! Amen and Amen.
For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisers.
Folly brings joy to one who has no sense, but whoever has understanding keeps a straight course.
A person finds joy in giving an apt reply– and how good is a timely word!
Plans are established by seeking advice; so if you wage war, obtain guidance.
Regarding the dream, Strange Bird, I believe that what I saw was correct; but, interpreting the vision correctly is often a challenge, that seers face. I know this for a fact- from Libya to Afghanistan and everything in between I saw this STRANGE BIRD wearing the same hats that we often have seen both Gahdaffi and Castro wearing, and now it is a little unsettling that many are accusing the presidency of the U.S. as a dictatorship. That would mean our foreign policy is that of a dictatorship, of sorts. It was that same hat the Strange Bird was wearing, in the dream of
October 17, 2012, when he landed flat on his back in the middle of this volatile region, silhouetted against a spreading conflict that was bleeding like water colours across the map from Syria, into Jordan, Turkey, Iraq, Iran and reaching for Kuwait …
The silhouette I described that I saw in the dream, lay there motionless with no one coming to help. Understand what was written in this article was over two years four months ago and published the November 5th 2012 and again January 2013. Prophetically describing much of what has transpired in 2014. Pray that our troops have nothing to do with what looks like a serious catastrophe for America in the Middle East. My prayer is that President Obama will not tread far beyond the authority of Congress and the will of the American people. For wisdom has many counsellors.
Of course, we should always pay what ever the cost to rescue our Christian family and the innocent from being slaughtered at the hands of the jackals roaming the haunts of Babylon; yet, we cannot strengthen the enemies of Israel, promote sexual perversion, and pre born infanticide among the nations, and expect our conduct to not move us away from the protective hand of God. Certainly, if our meddling with HIS land, and our influence among the nations work against HIM can we expect reprieve? What kind of judgement is it that we would be suffering loss from our own hardware in a land of so much conflict and uncertainty?
If we must involve ourselves and for humanity’s sake it seems that we must, it should be done with fear and trembling, with supplications, and humility, in our solemn assemblies. Family of God let us pray and repent of our sins, and intercede with out ceasing for America and our suffering brothers, and sisters, in this hour. Will we not be held accountable, oh watchman?
In your arrogance you were lifted up in your heart before all the nations. Ezekiel 31,32.

The Remnant Nation
Years ago, I had a dream that I was standing on a flatbed trailer singing to the four corners of the earth in a park. A park I ended up preaching in for a street gang outreach a few years later. Days after the dream, at a locked coliseum, during a prayer walk the Lord told us to prophecy keys for the door. Turning around, and having no thought to go in, we prophesied keys for the door, thinking it had to do with some future event. Less than a minute later the manager of the building’s maintenance rolled up in a pick-up and asked us if we needed the keys. By faith we said yes, not really understanding what God was doing. He opened the door and let us in to a coliseum that, later, Rodney Howard Brown would preach in and where the Rocker, Marylinn Manson, would put on a show while Christians picketed outside. When we walked inside the event center I noticed right away there was a flat-bed trailer I saw in my dream a few nights before. We walked up to the trailer anointed it with prayer, and claimed it for the glory of God. Such an odd encounter that day. We left in awe knowing we fulfilled a mission ordained of God. Days later, the Lord gave me an astounding conformation, again, about the flat-bed trailer. It was an article James Wilie published in the Morning Star Journal, that began with the same imagery I had in my dream. A woman standing on a flatbed trailer. The dream spoke of a generation lost because the church refused the music that actually was given to us in the first place. We know that music now as Rock and Roll. We will never know the original intent of this music called rock and roll, for in its infancy it was put out of the Church only to be filtered through the world before it found its way back again, tainted by a broken chain of custody. Little did I know at the time of James Wiley’s article that our three children would grow up as worship team members and leaders in the next decade, in three different states. We allowed them access to every anointed sound under heaven. Still, there was always a push back against the music that they naturally evolved in. To the point that worship services were a source of heart ache, the warfare resisting it not understood by those in charge, thinking to “tone it down” was the logical resolve. The music was fine for Christian concerts, but, resisted when integrated as worship in the church. Thankfully, I believe that mindset is behind us for the most part, yet, there are still many gathering places where the Body of Christ comes together, where this kind of philosophy rules. The gravity of warfare we were facing during that time was intensified when a music minister, and youth worship leader, both lost their lives, tragically, at the height of their impact in a region known as the cradle of former awakenings. Still to this day, in that region’s underground music scene there is a string of premature deaths in its wake, mostly do to accidents, sudden illnesses, and drugs. For our children, the music of their youth, like a wave has moved out to sea, to rise again another day. A blockade runner cannot go in the same way twice, right? As these things do, it’s not if but when, for each wave deposits its treasures to line the shores for that one great wave to carry it all in. The new decade brought more changes and new assignments, our oldest married, plays drums for his church, curiously, his secular music scene is predominately frequented by musicians from Christian homes, playing in secular bands. The youngest took his music behind the walls of obscurity. The music is now his worship between Him and God, and rarely played outside of his own studio. My daughter missing her companions, have moved on with her own life, as well, sharing her love to worship with her children. I walk the halls of the house of prayer, and like a glimmer of sunlight a sound breaks through the closed doors, from the back, as if heaven itself is behind them. I dare not even poke my head in, it sounds like a score from an epic movie. Am I hearing the previews of another era? Only God knows. Two years ago, I had another dream The Lord came to me as the SON of the Father’s house; a seed sower, husbandman, and harvester. He handed me two shear-cut, slated rocks, to play in a music machine that was in the style of a CD player. These rocks were sharp, jagged, and raw edged, around the outside; but, polished, and beautifully ingrained, on the inside. They looked like deeply embedded marbled streams of water, with white rapid swirls, taking on the appearance of white water rapids, pouring through mossy green embankments. I looked at the music machine asking the Lord, “Can we play Here Comes the Son?” He kept looking at the slated rocks and said, “I have these, I’ve had them all this time, will you hear them?” I said,”Lord wait, I’ll go tell them you’re here” though He wanted me to stay He relented, and let me go. I went into a back room where there, apparently, was a sixties slumber party of teenage girls just waking up. I told them who had showed up, wanting us to listen to the music stored on these sliced and polished stone discs. They screamed as if he were the Beatles, and they started to get dressed. I ran out to spend more time with him, again, asking to hear the song, Here Comes the Son. Again, he almost seemed slightly disappointed, he looked at the slated rocks in his hands. I felt moved for him, because he wanted so much to share these songs with me. I remembered the scripture … If these don’t then- the rocks will CRY out. I went back to hurry the girls, each time they were curling their hair, and primping, I pleaded to them please hurry, just come as you are, he is waiting, he has music He wants to show you, still they kept primping, each time I checked on them they were moving a little slower. Each time I left him alone he would hardly let me go. Finally, they became distracted and was doing other things the last I saw them, I spent the rest of the time left, with HIM. I was in my t-shirt and sweats, my hair was undone. None of that mattered to him as his eyes never looked away from mine. He looked a little forlorn because of the absence of the others but His joy that I was there never dimmed. HE TOLD me something about a famous song writer I never knew. When I woke up I researched it, and it was true, in the beginning his songs, lesser known, was about Yeshuah. Sadly, his music, rejected by the church so many years ago, did not end where it began in the era of His fame. What is this from heaven? What more to be discovered? What sounds, and songs are etched in the stones that are about to cry out? The Lord did not want to sing, “Here Comes The Son” though the melody was catchy, fun and sunny- a good thought for a rainy day, still it shadows in this one truth we cannot miss. In order to worship God in SPIRIT and in TRUTH we need to comprehend Jesus Christ IS Come, and through him and by Him we enter the throne room of GRACE where by we obtain MERCY in times of need. Similarly, worship is not past, nor future, it is BEING, WHOLE HEARTILY, present with HIM in HIS presence. No preparation apart from him will lead you to Him. Grace has made the way, boldly enter in. No new song, comes from with out, rather it comes from with in the presence of God. He is the author and the finisher of our faith. The Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. The Sower and the Harvester is the SON OF The FATHERS house. This people, these generations, who dolled themselves up for hours screaming for their idols- are a people so enthralled with preparations, approaches, and presentation, we missed this one thing. Time spent with Him. We cater to the former so much we miss the latter. Have you heard it said we need to acknowledge the older generation in our music? Play their old tunes to spark them up? Honoring the older generations is commendable, but in this they should be at the helm. I am that older generation, the tail-end of the Jesus movement harvest; and I can tell you if they are not in the inner courts now, they never will be. Simeon and Anna were waiting for the Lord in the temple daily according to Luke 2:35, elderly as they were, they did not want to miss a thing; not only did they greet and meet the generation that brought forth the Messiah, they prophesied and recognized, His arrival. Aged Simeon was led of The Lord to meet Jesus and His parents at the temple. Simeon prophesied over Him, and Anna was the first woman to preach Jesus among those looking for the Messiah. She never left the temple but stayed there day and night, she was a prophetess over 80 years old. It is God’s order that the elder generation meet the present day visitation as long as they are standing in their place, with enthusiasm, waiting for what they have been prophetically watching for [Lo] these many years. Always looking for Christ in His second coming, and the moves of His Spirit that will usher in His everlasting kingdom. As the scripture says, parents are for the children, not children for the parents. The Church has got to stop pandering to idol worshiping ears, that will never appreciate the sound of heaven but will bog down the assent in the fair way. So much is said about grooming the congregation into the act of worship so that they will not be left behind … Does it occur to anyone that is where they want most to be? Left behind? Shall we not go? Leadership is upset that the foyer fills up, rather than the altar, you compel, and compel, before you have entered in yourself, but few respond. The dream challenged me- in my determination to bring the “slumber party” to the place where they could hear these songs, I kept leaving the moment to bring others in. Risking what ever it was that God wanted to impart to me would be missed in the perishable moments called a VISITATION. SOMEONE, must receive from the Lord, or none ever will. The airlines tell us, “Put the oxygen mask on yourself first, then reach for those that cannot do it for themselves.” Why? Because if you don’t secure for yourself first, both will die for lack of oxygen. Christ first always. Cut off the pandering, put on the oxygen mask, get a fresh lung full of GOD BREATH, and then we’ll have what it takes to motivate the late arrivals. You see, there is always the danger of the former generation’s mindsets delaying the new. For Example, the wilderness generation that had to die off before the new generation could enter into the promise land. Save Caleb, another great elder, of great strength, and faith. So beneficial for the crossing over, how much His stories caused the younger generation to burn in their heart for the promised land. What to gain is Christ, and Christ alone. Let the slumber party sleep, they had their day. Had they stayed awake they never would have missed the INTRO that would have led them to the BRIDGE. Your encounter with the throne shall drench you with the dew of the morning. The thirsty will find it upon you, and seek for more, hold not back, let not the outer court, the FOYER LOVERS, the generations that refuse to budge, (unless their MUSIC IS PREDOMINANT, and their palate satisfied) dictate the MASTER’S IMPARTATIONS upon His WORSHIPPERS that will usher them into the APOSTOLIC rule and reign of CHRIST on this earth. For the nature of what is about to be released in the earth as far as the SOUND and the SONG will be unto Satan the stench of a death dirge, to his rule and reign. Those found worthy will wait upon Christ, if they miss it the ROCKs still will declare it, and another generation of lost WORSHIPPERS will become pawns of a sound and melody that incites idol worship, for by its very nature music sways the masses into singleness of mind that is manipulated to SERVE SOMEBODY, should the Church fail to receive it. Here Comes The Sons … How Satan so desires to have music born of heaven for it shall surely become the theme song to a new world order, if He can get His hands on it, and twist the gift of God for his own purposes, as he has in generations past. After all, Lucifer knows the power and influence of music. So then, let the sleepers lie. Move forward to your AWAKENING, the sound and the new song is creation in her groanings, singing harmony with the throne of God, in this shall your generations come from out of their GRAVES. Does not this present generation love to act out the NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD? IS NOT THE ZOMBIE NATION this generation’s walking dead? Is the earth itself not groaning horrors? Shall not the stars fall down from the sky? What kind of music will come out of heaven and declare this generation? Even define its high call? Will not a Holy Tempest stir up from with in, and join the fountain heads and rivers from the corporate priesthood, and Holy Race? THE LIVING WATERS, Rushing down over the evergreen embankments, where all that is living breathes? The STONES are cut and polished smooth, what is this sound of heaven, that Christ is so enthralled about giving us? This one who came to me as the SON of the Fathers House who is the author and finisher of our faith. As music interprets a generation, as it somehow relates to them, as they are conduits that carry heaven’s composition, so it is worth contending for, waiting on heaven to receive, until it comes. The Worshipers go first, they head up the processions of victory, it is from the HEARING realm we shall first be alerted before the great day. For as it is written: With the voice of an arch angle and the trump of God … So let us have ears to hear, the sounds that come from Heaven. For out of it will come the fire of God that burns the incense of our worship, releasing the aroma, even the fragrances that mingle with His glory, come from His throne. 2 Corinthians 2:16 (AMP) For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the latter it is an aroma [wafted] from death to death [a fatal odor, the smell of doom]; to the former it is an aroma from life to life [a vital fragrance, living and fresh]. And who is qualified (fit and sufficient) for these things? [Who is able for such a ministry? We?]

Open your mouth and I will fill it, says The Lord, have I not fashioned you to be my mouth piece!? To speak my words that I have placed in your heart to speak? The beating of your heart moves into your ears, and you continuously say, “Is this you? Is this you, Lord?” Did I not say I would fill you full to overflowing, when you seek me? Did I not say follow me and I would make you fishers of men? Can you do it apart from my Spirit; shall I not draw them first to myself by my invisible hand? Shall not I make your way prosper, to plant the heavens and lay the foundations of the earth with the words that proceed out of MY mouth? MY word shall not return void- BUT YOUR words are dead all ready, they lay ON the ground and cannot get up for there is no life in the dribbling of the wisdom of MEN.
Yet, it is my WORD that has accomplished the thing that I SENT HIM to accomplish. And even now the NEW MAN of whom CHRIST is the head- I have sent out like a TRIATHLON runner, who treks land and sea, mountain and valley, highway and hill, to do my work. More so, shall he scale the walls of hinderance, climb the face of resistance, shoot forth the arrow of prophetic proclamation, and swim the tides of change. In the moonlight of midnight he scans the horizon and discerns the silhouettes of covert, and the tree lines that walk like men, he blows the trumpet in Zion! He scouts from the distant shores- what I declare as hidden is hidden, what I declare as seen is seen, and the WORDS I speak! says The Lord, are spirit and they are truth.
Isaiah 51: 4 Listen to me my people; And give ear to me … MY righteousness is near, My salvation has gone forth, THe coastlands will WAIT UPON ME, and upon MY arm they will trust.

NeWine Pouring The Remnant Nation -Blessed are the poor in spirit for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. Who is the Remnant?
Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the LORD. “These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word.
Several weeks ago the Lord opened my eyes once again to the Red River Nation as it passed before me in a vision, this time I saw my self wearing peasant clothes, I looked up and saw the Lord instruct the reins of a horse to be handed to me. I was then handed banners, one for my clan, a banner for my tribe, and the crimson banner depicting the Holy Race, that banner was raised up to join the others above the procession, creating a crimson red river from the eagles eye view. Jesus looked to me and said, “You have nothing because you wanted nothing, other than this that has been in your heart all these many years.” At that my eyes were open to the fact that I was in this mobile assembly coursing through the land, moving through out all nations. We are in it already, I believe, and where ever it takes us it will sometimes be seen and sometimes un seen, as if to move in and out of the shadows of the great rock mountain. For many the reports of it, will be described as just the rumblings of thunder, many others will here the voice of the Lord compelling them to come, they will know where to meet and join her, intuitively. It is my conviction to be aware that it is a moving breathing assembly of the gathered, in the spirit, after the order of Melchizedek, who was a type and shadow of Jesus of whom we are (his body) – as Christ is so are we in the earth! From where does this procession come? Where is it going? We will only “fully know” when we get there, then shall we fully understand. This is my take on it, so far, and I know that in this life we look through it all as it were, through stained and tinted glass, and we should always remember:
John 3:8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
This word has come through many different venues but the jest of it is- A camp-out in the tradition of the festival of booths, shall manifest momentarily, the assembly, out from the shadows of the big rock mountain. A well spring of glory shall flood the land and carry the remnant like a river current, out to sea, and a great thrust of gathering will spill out into all nations from this place among many, this high place, this mountain-top of seeking, a place from where rivers are made.
Psalm 84:3-12 The Message (MSG)
Birds find nooks and crannies in your house, sparrows and swallows make nests there. They lay their eggs and raise their young, singing their songs in the place where we worship. God-of-the-Angel-Armies! King! God! How blessed they are to live and sing there!
And how blessed all those in whom you live, whose lives become roads you travel; They wind through lonesome valleys, come upon brooks, discover cool springs and pools brimming with rain! God-traveled, these roads curve up the mountain, and at the last turn—Zion! God in full view! God-of-the-Angel-Armies, listen:O God of Jacob, open your ears—I’m praying! Look at our shields, glistening in the sun our faces, shining with your gracious anointing. One day spent in your house, this beautiful place of worship, beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches. I’d rather scrub floors in the house of my God than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin. All sunshine and sovereign is God, generous in gifts and glory. He doesn’t scrimp with his traveling companions. It’s smooth sailing all the way with God-of-the-Angel-Armies.

March 29, 2013
Daniel 2 New International Version (NIV)
The king asked Daniel (also called Belteshazzar), “Are you able to tell me what I saw in my dream and interpret it?”
Daniel replied, “No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mystery he has asked about, but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come. Your dream and the visions that passed through your mind as you were lying in bed are these:
“As Your Majesty was lying there, your mind turned to things to come, and the revealer of mysteries showed you what is going to happen. As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than anyone else alive, but so that Your Majesty may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind. “Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance.
The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.
“This was the dream, and now we will interpret it to the king. Your Majesty, you are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; in your hands he has placed all mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds in the sky. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold.
“After you, another kingdom will arise, inferior to yours. Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.
“In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces.
Not With Human Hands! ( For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12) ( 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds …)
Read it in The Message translation- Daniel 2: 41-45
“But then the feet and toes that ended up as a mixture of ceramic and iron will deteriorate into a mongrel kingdom with some remains of iron in it. Just as the toes of the feet were part ceramic and part iron, it will end up a mixed bag of the breakable and unbreakable. That kingdom won’t bond, won’t hold together any more than iron and clay hold together.
“But throughout the history of these kingdoms, the God of heaven will be building a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will this kingdom ever fall under the domination of another. In the end it will crush the other kingdoms and finish them off and come through it all standing strong and eternal. It will be like the stone cut from the mountain by the invisible hand that crushed the iron, the bronze, the ceramic, the silver, and the gold.
(The kingdom of God is increasing in power and glory, and there is nothing anyone can do about it, the nations now are as it is described in Daniel, strong and weak nations mingled, like iron and clay. In this day, in the time of these kings who rule, Christ will return, and His kingdom will be revealed.)
“The great God has let the king know what will happen in the years to come. This is an accurate telling of the dream, and the interpretation is also accurate.”
Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell prostrate before Daniel and paid him honor and ordered that an offering and incense be presented to him. The king said to Daniel, “Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery.”
Isaiah 9:2-7 (The Message) The Message The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who lived in a land of deep shadows— light! sunbursts of light! You repopulated the nation, you expanded its joy. Oh, they’re so glad in your presence! Festival joy! The joy of a great celebration, sharing rich gifts and warm greetings. The abuse of oppressors and cruelty of tyrants— all their whips and cudgels and curses— Is gone, done away with, a deliverance as surprising and sudden as Gideon’s old victory over Midian. The boots of all those invading troops, along with their shirts soaked with innocent blood, Will be piled in a heap and burned, a fire that will burn for days! For a child has been born—for us! the gift of a son—for us! He’ll take over the running of the world. His names will be: Amazing Counselor, Strong God, Eternal Father, Prince of Wholeness. His ruling authority will grow, and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness he brings. He’ll rule from the historic David throne over that promised kingdom. He’ll put that kingdom on a firm footing and keep it going With fair dealing and right living, beginning now and lasting always. The zeal of God-of-the-Angel-Armies will do all this. More on the prayer journal entry
Prayer Journal 3/8/2013
Asia on my heart and mind today, the sleeping giant has been waking and with that an “awakening”. The Lord showed me an army of Asian intercessors praying- for China and Southeast Asia, still remembering a “sea of hands” lifted up in praise to God in Indonesia. Mongolia geologically erupts, and Russia shakes, again awakenings and humanitarian aid flows into isolated places, with it shafts of light … A stirring in North Korea-What seems impossible with men is possible with God. I see a man carrying a shepherd’s rod through the rural lands of North Korea, the Shepherd is among his people, seeking and gathering the flock. The heart of the Father is moving through the land, he captures the heart of broken sons and daughters. God will open up North Korea, when he does we will be astounded at what is rock, and what is river flowing in the caverns of the deep, so much mighty movement beneath statuesque strongholds. (For His mercy endures forever, and He hears the cries of the oppressed.)
Isaiah 9:2-7 (The Message) The Message The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who lived in a land of deep shadows— light! sunbursts of light! You repopulated the nation, you expanded its joy. Oh, they’re so glad in your presence! Festival joy! The joy of a great celebration, sharing rich gifts and warm greetings.

Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
America is on a track into her destiny, and come what may, the triumphant church moves forward in stark contrast against America’s storms, manifesting His light in ever-increasing darkness.
“… We cannot say we are a righteous people. America has sinned, and has sown to the wind …” Billy Graham 1/20/1993
Bill Clinton inauguration. We thought we were reaping the winds we have sown into- all these years, but we have had many days of prosperity since the Clinton administration, where Billy Graham spoke these words. Much grace, much mercy, much given us to do the right thing, but there comes a time for harvest, when all that we have sown shall come to its fullness. The good, the bad, and the ugly. We are just days into President Obama’s second term, whose elections were marred by the tragedy of both Sandy Hook, and the Sandy hurricane. Both violent whirlwinds of destruction. Just yesterday “out of season” tornadic storms ripped across the Southeast, our own town under tornado warnings.
The Lord gave me a prophetic dream regarding the second term of president Obama that I have finally finished, after much prayer and waiting. When a nation has moved away from God, the only thing it has going for it, is the prayer of the intercessors. That is why we pray, we bind and loose, and cover our neighborhoods in prayer, pleading the blood of Jesus. We have literally seen the storms break up, and move around our little town, over, and over, again. This is our time to be the answer (that not even the government) could ever provide.
The Body of Christ in Apostolic authority is where refuge shall be for those who seek to come out of the darkness, and into the light. He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide in the shadow of the almighty. Not only shall we rest in HIS shadow, but in HIM we shall also “cast HIS shadow” for the lost to dwell in.
Years of the Whirlwind.
