It was a quiet evening at sundown as I walked around the corner of my house. When I looked up towards the western sky I was startled to see our willow tree sorely pruned. I looked at it wondering if it would ever grow back to its original stature. All of its delicate branches curled down ward were gone. Could it ever be beautiful again? I felt a little sadness, somehow I knew it had to be this way. The tree was cleared of every pest infested, diseased, and broken branch. It was a clearing of the (would be) debris field before the storm. Something caught my eye to the right, as the sky darkened. A movement towards me, I then realized a book was being placed before me. It was a teal colored, thin, book with a long title; embossed in gold lettering. I couldn’t make out the entire title of the book, but was able to see these words very clear as the gold lettering glowed in the twilight, the words read-
Earlier that day I had literally drove past a tree much like the one I saw in this prophetic dream. It was located on the corner of Government and Sycamore. Immediately, when I saw the tree pruned as it was, I felt the Spirit of God come over me and I knew a message would be drawn from what I seen, and one did. A recording of it can be found at Remnant Nation Radio with Newine Pouring. The Winnowed and The Pruned along with Clearing The Debris Field are two parts of a whole. One addresses Christian America, the other, all of those in Christ. To drive home the point, the city I live in had began to prune trees away from the power lines up and down the streets, they did this the entire week I was preparing to record the pod-cast. I could not help take from that, a parallel of how much our broken, pest infested, and diseased branches of government are needing this word regarding the winnowed and the pruned, in order to retain its power and influence in the earth.
Weeks later, when an ice storm rolled into the region our little community was the few that did not have power interruptions. The fact of the matter is that we will have storms, how we fare when we do depends on our preparation, and readiness to respond to the Spirit of God. God wills that NO MAN perishes, but that all come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Most of us understand the significance of the Sycamore tree explained very well in the book called the Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. While we as a country have pushed upward and onward, endeavoring to rebuild where we have been broken, we have ignored the lessons of the kingdom regarding what it takes to become strong. Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. To be God strong in America we must decrease, bow our greatness to the sovereign God in repentances, and become the people who are the winnowed, and the pruned. This in return will remove the debris field before the storm, rather than after, where time and chance takes its erratic path.

Mountain of The Lord prophecy
… And though she is heavy with armor she rides like the wind. And though she is heavy with armor she summits the MOUNTAIN of THE LORD. Join our podcast with dee barnes as she gives an audio reading of NeWine Pouring’s most popular prophetic word regarding end time outpourings. Short teaching segment, and prayer ministry for the sick.
In the last days the MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD’S Temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and peoples will stream to it “… there He will teach us HIS ways, so that we may Walk HIS paths” Micah 4:1-5
The most powerful and affective way to fight spiritual battles is to declare the Word of God over our lives, and focus on the Good news of His Word, and who we are in Him. Not only because we need to hear it (faith comes not, but by hearing, and hearing the word of God …) but because the devil is a trespasser, and he operates illegally, he will surely take advantage of any double mindedness or vocalizations that fortifies the problem and not the answer. This is how that trespasser gets a foothold, to work where he really has no right. Life and death are in the power of the tongue, as the scripture says. A faith filled report speaks of the fruit and its availability.
The evil report focuses on the giants in the land, that cannot be overcome. It is the difference between obtaining the promises of the covenant, or wandering in the wilderness. If doubt and unbelief comes out of our mouth, then out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks … This is why we search the scriptures to know Christ, to understand what His will is for our lives, and to know the character of God. This is so we will not align ourselves with the enemies lies. It is imperative that we fill our heart with God’s promise, so that when we are under pressure, his word will come out of us.
Sins, Sicknesses, and Bondage.
I think we can get into bondage if we are constantly probing around trying to figure out some deep seeded reason for this or that, when all we need to do is tell the devil, and generational curses the buck stops here! We can declare: I am in covenant! I am a new creature! The failure of my fathers will not have this generation! Why stumble around in the basement rummaging through old suitcases for an answer, when we can stand on the roof top, and proclaim HIs Word over are lives, and to the next generation? It just seems to be a better way. Believe me, I have witnessed the endless rummaging. No sooner do they rid themselves of one thing, than they are after another. Have you ever met someone who has gone to counseling and therapy for years? Meetings after meetings for their addictions for decades and never seem to get free? Dwelling on the problem can never be the answer. We can sweep the basement clean, addressing these things by name, but if we do not fill it up with the LIGHT of Gods word, (according to scripture) the unclean spirits will come back to the house they came out of with seven more stronger. Mathew 12:43-45 We must live in the Word of God, and speak its truth into our lives, this dispels the darkness and fills us with light from the words of our mouth.
2 Corinthians 5:16-18 (New King James Version)
Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation …
Isaiah 43:18 (New King James Version)
“ Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth. Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness. And rivers in the desert.
(He replaces our wilderness and desert with RIVERS!) Out of YOUR belly shall flow RIVERS of living water!
Romans 6:4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.
Like I have stated before the devil is a trespasser, his operations are illegal. If we let him, he will pass through generational lines. He will pass through them even if we are born again, because we have to assert our rights as believers. We must take possession of the promises of God full throttle, as the children of Israel had to take possession of Canaan. It is the way we deal with the enemy, and generational devils (better known as familiar spirits) that revisit family lines. These unclean spirits seek habitation to manipulate human weakness, error, and infirmity, in a (known to the familiars) family tree. Even Godly family lines can carry on mind sets from one generation to the other, that limit growth in the kingdom. Remember, the traditions of men can make the word of God of no effect, even good practices can hinder, when they are not God ordained direction for that season, or situation.
Mark 7:9 -13 New International Version (©1984) And he said to them: “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions! … Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down.
What we have seen with our eyes and touched with our own hands … the Word of LIFE!
Generational sin has left its carnage in the jails, prisons, and streets, where we have gone to minister. Men and women incarcerated, whose parents were incarcerated, or laden with addictions, are carrying on the family tradition. Many of these people have suffered abandonment, rejection, attempts of suicide, and mental illnesses; that have not only plagued them, but their family lines as well. When you bring a deliverance ministry into those places with a (a zero tolerance for demonic activity) there is more manifestation because the devil knows Jesus is coming to cast them out. Ministries who are assertive against demonic oppression, manifestations, and control, do not have to go looking for devils to cast out. “They” will cry out when the deliverer comes who is Christ in us. If you are not known in the spirit realm to cast out devils, then the unclean spirits have nothing to fear when you are around. It is when they learn of your reputation as being one that will drive them out, that bazaar circumstances will begin to present themselves around you. Jesus said, the works that I do you shall do also … and greater works shall you do because I go to my Father.
We know that devils cried out when Jesus walked this earth, and they still do to-day, if you will only believe in his name, and discern when they manifest. Often they will play on your ignorance and comply with anything that does not bring attention to the fact that they are there, if they know it is not your habit to deal with them. In many of our churches today, they actually cater to the enemy, letting devils manifest and disrupt services by odd behavior and distraction, yet the leadership does nothing about it. On the other hand if you do as Christ did when he ministered in the cities, your reputation will ferret them out, even more so your discernment. Jesus himself said, “these signs shall follow them that believe, in my name they will cast out devils … Mark 16:17.
Preaching on the blood will get a reaction.
Once when I was preaching on the blood of Jesus in an institution, a man who had lived in a catatonic state, began to roll his wheel chair from the back of the room towards me shoving through every one in his way until he was able to ram himself into the speaking podium I was standing behind. He rolled back and came at me again with eyes glazed over in a fixed stare. We bound the unclean spirit that was manifesting through this man, finding out later that he would reach out and grab hold of some of the patients, and not let go. His eyes and facial expression remaining in a fixed state. After we prayed for him this violent and unusual behavior stopped. Our team gained a reputation for solving some of the odd incidences that would take place in this institution, and we began to be sought out by the nursing staff for our help. We were asked to pray through the rooms vacated by some of those who had died. The nursing staff began to notice insanity was acting like a virus, when patients would begin to parrot vocal similarities, of a tormented person, who had died in the room before them. They would cry out the same words, or act out non verbal expressions. The nurses finally began to realize that this was demonic activity. Thankfully, God had positioned people with discernment to work there.
Your reputation will proceed you.
In one particular visit in this facility, we walked into the building from the west wing and heard a patient crying out our family name on the east wing. No one could have possibly known we were there. As we passed the nurses station one of them hurried over and pulled us to the side, she was upset and asked us if we believed in demon possession. We explained to her that we have been commissioned by Jesus Christ to go into all the world, and preach the Gospel, casting out devils was part of that ministry, as well as laying hands on the sick. She began to explain to us that one of the patients was demonstrating very curious behavior, when nurses would check on her she would seem to have expired. The nurses would run out and signal a code-blue only to find her sitting on the edge of her bed laughing with a hideous, animated laughter. They could not understand how she was controlling her vital signs, appearing to be near death. The nurse said she was having a hard time getting other nurses to check on her. She asked us if we could do something, we had already met her in our other visits and had already suspected that she was heavily tormented.
When we entered into her room she immediately reached over to the draperies on the window and attempted to climb up the draperies. This frail woman in her 80′s probably weighed a 100 lbs. Her strength was beyond natural, as she began to lift herself up the curtains. The nurses helped her back down, rolled her into the middle of the room and hurried out the door leaving me alone with this poor woman. As I looked into her eyes I saw the demon manifest a shadow face over her own, looking like an extreme insomniac version of herself. I said, “You have not been able to sleep have you?” With a pitiful whisper she said,” No I haven’t. I said “You have been up for days haven’t you?” She said, “Yes, I have”. I said,” Well, that is going to stop now, and then I spoke to the unclean spirit and commanded it to leave her now in the name of Jesus Christ. Immediately, I felt peace come into the room. It was that simple. This woman who was once a pastor’s wife that had pastored a church in that city many years earlier, was now able to pray with me in the name of Jesus, I left her alone thanking Him. Few deliverances have been that simple but in this instance it was.
Interestingly enough, this was my last visit there. I was about to take a maternity leave off from the ministry to focus on our new baby who was due in just days. One year later we walked into the institution, went to the nurses desk and the first person I asked about was Mrs. ______ the nurse said, “Oh well, you must have walked right past her she is over there”. I turned around and saw the same woman we encountered a year earlier. She literally looked 10 years younger! Not only was her hair done up, but she was wearing a nice dress sitting quietly and composed. She did not recognize me but she seemed very peaceful and content. We saw lives changed in forgotten places, because we dared to believe in the full gospel of Jesus Christ. To often ministries go into these places just to comfort. Of course comfort is a big part, but that is not the full package deal. Go ye! If you can’t go then support some one who can it is just the same! But make sure they are bringing that great commission of Christ to the lost, that they be utterly healed, set free, and filled with His Holy Spirit.
First bind the strongman then spoil his goods.
We have seen revival break out in prison, to the extent that guards were set inside the doors of the sanctuary of the chapel; an unusual sight being that the chapel would normally be occupied by a handful of inmates with one guard watching through the window. We were not afraid to interrupt the meetings with prayer when we felt opposition in the atmosphere. In most services ministers, usually, just plow through the hard ground and try to eek out a formidable attraction. We learned to stop and take authority over that kind of atmosphere, and would nail it all night if we had to. After all it is not a performance we were there for. Our whole reason for being in these places was to fulfill a mandate to reach the lost. If you have to stop and war to do that, well, that just comes with the territory.
If we were faithful not to bow under the atmosphere, God was faithful to show up every time with a move of His Spirit, where people were falling out, getting healed, and filled, right where they were sitting. Many times, when we stopped the service to pray we would take authority over witchcraft, and all most every time we would have a runner that would flee the sanctuary. This became a signature move of the Holy Spirit in our meetings. A sign to those in the jails, and prisons that the power of God was present, normally those who would run out were exercising controlling powers over other inmates and was there to keep tabs on them. You see, a lot of people would be upset that two or three people would jump up and run out of their service. But I fully enjoyed the wolves who have no wish to do anything but devour the sheep, were being chased out of the flock. That proved to me that the Good Shepherd was in charge. People will do one of two things in the presence of the anointing. They will run to it, or run a way from it. It is when they run to it that their devils cry out. The unclean spirits are suddenly brought into the presence of almighty God and they start acting up, because the heart and the will of the one they are tormenting, is turning themselves over to God.
Walking in the Glory
To be affective in what God has called us to do is to command that kind of atmosphere around us in the Spirit, where the glory of the Lord is so strong that spiritual awakenings are able to rock the unseen world every where our feet tread the ground. We should have a zero tolerance for demonic activity all the time. We should pull upon heaven until it fills our world with God’s Glory. Living this way is definitely not boring. Something as simple as going to a restaurant, or walking downtown, will draw out the desperation of those who need deliverance. The less there is of us the more there is of Him. Christ will be recognized! And the devil will be exposed!
No harm will come to you.
Years ago we were having meetings in our home,(and this was during the time when we had just begun homeschooling our children) there was a new face in the crowd she was a rather large woman and very severe looking. I felt a check in my spirit regarding her. I was told that she worked for the state in child protection services, by a friend, and as the meeting went on, I noticed that she was not participating with the rest of us in worship and just didn’t seem to act like one of the sheep. I began to wonder if she was taking advantage of our open home, to sniff around over this home schooling thing, and I felt uneasy. We continued to worship the Lord, and I lifted it all up to God, and pretty soon the glory began to fill our living room as we all became lost in worship. The next thing I know, I hear this tremendous thud hit the ground, and an awful groan. I opened my eyes and this woman who was in the back of the room, was now in the front of the room just inches away from me. She was on her hands and knees, and moaning. She stood there like that for the rest of the night shaking, sobbing, moaning, and crying. A couple of sisters continued to pray with her until the end of the service. They helped her out the door and to her car. I never saw her again, and until this day I do not know her story. Who was she? Why was she there? All I know is that God had his way that night. Not man. Not devils.
… and He escaped out from the midst of them …
More recently, I walked into the post office to check our mail box when all of a sudden I was ran up upon by a man and a deranged woman in her 30′s, she was tall, and had her hair in dreadlocks. There was absolutely no one around, I tried to keep it cool and walked them out towards my car, to get out in the open. I briefly spoke to the man and bound unclean spirits off of him and then blessed him, he immediately left on down the sidewalk. The woman approached me after him, as she stared me down with a murderous gaze, nose to nose, she asked me for the exact change I had in my hands. How did she know how much money I had in my hand? I was dealing with a powerful spirit, and began to pray in tongues, she began to chant in gibberish. The spirit of the lord moved me to raise my hand level to her forehead and say (with authority) “Peace be still in the name of Jesus Christ”. When I did this, peace filled the space between her and myself, she dropped her head and shoulders, closed her eyes and let out a sigh. The woman then put her hands in a praying position as a “hush” over her lips. For several seconds she seem to come into composure, and back to her senses, turned around and moved away like any normal woman walking down the street. We must be instant in season and out, always. Only God knows what we may encounter on any given day.
Cut the chase!
It saddened me to go to a convention of world renown ministries, and see the people there unable to handle a demon possession that the deacons carried out of the sanctuary and into the lobby. I’m not saying it was any one of these ministers, but rather those that were in charge of the altar work. The first mistake they made was taking her out of the presence of the anointing. Unless the altar workers are able to carry over the same anointing that exposed the demon in the first place, it is serious error to take them out of it. Pastors and church leadership from all over the world were attending these meetings. Several names known from television were preaching. We happened to be there waiting for our van to take us to the air port, when a commotion came crashing out the doors of the sanctuary, right at our feet this woman landed, snarling, vomiting, and thrashing around, she had at least six men and women right on her, praying in tongues, praying: “Oh Jesus” “Oh Jesus”, she jumped up and ran a muck through the lobby, and into the women’s bathroom. They drug her out of the bathroom, and she ended up on the floor in the lobby again. I thought if they keep praying like that they might as well call the paramedics. It’s a wonder she didn’t leave a couple of them naked. It’s a wonder she wasn’t naked. That evil spirit was in control and he was running the show! They kept praying “Oh Jesus”, “help her Lord, help her Lord”. I could not believe what I was hearing, but I had to stay out of it. I was not invited into it, and theses places have their order. I don’t think Jesus would do that. You can see for yourself He rarely barged in on other people’s business. I thought, I’m staying out of this. But it wasn’t to long into this fiasco that the Lord began to speak to me a word of wisdom. He said, “Don’t turn around, don’t look at them, don’t posture yourself one bit, just yell out above the noise and command the evil spirit to leave the woman”. So I did, I yelled at the top of my voice, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you unclean spirits leave this woman now!” It got quiet for a moment, some one caught on, pretty soon they all began to directly address the unclean spirits in Jesus name, and command them to leave. They didn’t even know where that voice came from. The power of God came in, she began to settle down, and they were able to bring order into the situation. About that time our van came. Praise God in the Highest! For that name that is above every name!
Acts 19:13-19 (New International Version, ©2010) Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding. When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor.
Why do you look for Him here among the dead? He is RISEN!
. 1 Corinthian 10:3-7 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ …
I have seen ordinary christian people who know a lot about psychotherapy, and very little about the word of God. They have come to us for ministry yet chose to continue to dwell on the curses, instead of dwelling on the CROSS of Christ where ordinances written against us were nailed! If only they would stand and point to the Lamb, and say. “Satan, Christ bore my curse”. We have to get ourselves full of God and his word! This is the LIGHT that displaces darkness. Text book knowledge and deep studies are not going to do it. We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the WORD of our testimony (profession). I would rather tell people how to stand in their freedom in Christ, and how by the sword of the Word you can sever generational bondage (calling them by name, and telling them they cannot have you.) Rather than the alternative, which to me has been reduced to nothing more than sessions upon sessions of psychological witch hunts. Inner healing ministry gone viral. Balance is the key here. Word based and Spirit lead. The key to it all is believing that God really loves you, and that his thoughts toward you are for good and not for evil. That he will fulfill every bit of the covenant he has made with us, sealed by blood. In Christ set free healed and delivered. It is already done, we just need to contend for what is ours and walk in it.
How do we prepare ourselves to become dragon slayers in a possessed society?
How we affect the world in our prayer closet is how we will impact the world in the market place. You see, in the spirit realm we live up to our reputations, real or devised. In the world we can hide what we really are if we are not true to ourselves, and honest with God, and man. We can dress for success and have an appearance of power. We can give ourselves titles that cause men to tremble in our presence. We can use our money to buy prestige and favor. However, kingdom authority cannot be achieved in any of these ways. Even the disciples could not cast out some devils. Jesus rebuked them for their doubt and unbelief, but also, reminded them, “these come not out but by fasting and by prayer“. In fact, there are many who stand behind the platforms and pulpits of christian churches today who occupy the offices of church authority, work in ministries, and services, that would be shredded alive had it not been for the dragon slayers, who cover them in prayers, those behind the scenes intercessors weeping before the throne, wrangling in battles of life, and death, for those whose prayer lives do not match their call. These warriors, these unassuming, untitled, so-called unauthorized, are changing the world around them …they are those, known in the spirit realm by name, of whom the world is not worthy … they are the unsung heroes that are impacting the earth in ways that will never be understood, this side of heaven. They are bearing fruit by investing in others and their fruit will remain. This is why no man can glory, only God knows all that is involved in our victories. Nevertheless, a true and effective ministry will not shrink back from casting out devils, but will find many healings attached to taking authority over unclean spirits. Don’t be deceived, there is a devil behind most of the ills of mankind, and you will see more success in your ministry if you take authority over them.
Luke 6:17-19 (New King James version)who came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases, as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.
John 14:12 (New International Version (©1984)
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

Where can we go to find peace in a world that gives us no guarantees in life? There is ONE place, a beautiful tempest, that will bring a HOLY UPHEAVAL of JOY In your life, this is found in the PRESENCE and GLORY of GOD, through HIS son JESUS. Join our pod cast for prayer ministry and prophetic word.
The wellspring of LIVING WATER, is a source of strength that comes from with in. It is the in dwelling of the Holy Spirit of God that can over flow in our lives if we would receive it. The PERSON of the HOLY GHOST, lives inside of the child of God who has accepted Christ. HE leads us and guides us into all truth.
He is also, THE COMFORTER! For a refreshing reminder, or introduction to this person of the Godhead, listen to Fountain of Living Waters I and II. As always, these segments include ministry of prayer and healing, in the second part of the series.
We have a lot of voices describing the chaos and the ruin, the gross darkness covering the earth, and great darkness the people. But, few are lending to the other side of that equation. We will walk among them in this world like morning at midnight. Christ in us the Hope and the Glory. Nevertheless, time is running out for those who do not KNOW the still small voice of God, those so acquainted with the shepherd’s voice …. that a stranger they will not follow. In times of plenty they learned to lean on HIM. Never once trusting in the chariots of Egypt. They are the ones who are moving out, to the front of the line.
the Church in the Nation Who Sits at Ease 9/4/2013. Dee
” … You’re in the habit of running red lights, you’ve done it so much that the stop sign means nothing to you, the light might as well be green – after all, “we are under grace”, they say, over, and over, again. Your ear has been trained upon the voice of your appetites all these many years, season, after season, judgement, after judgement. The smoke from distant troubles rises in the air, but, you say, ” it will never touch me, trouble like that will never come to me, it only happens in distant lands, in lesser civilizations. Know you not, says The Lord, these places once were great kingdoms in the earth, great civilizations, giving you much of what you possess even now? Assyria, Egypt, Babylon, Greece, and Rome, now a shadow of what was once world domination in their time. Be careful that the light you walk in is not, rather, darkness. World powers rise and fall but those who put their trust in me will not be shaken.
Look at your alliances, and allegiances, look at your partnerships, and pledges, have you struck hands with a stranger? Seek to loose yourself from those NOT of my kingdom. This is a time to step away from engagements that would yoke you with unbelievers, and the sleepers.The life cord should be detached at base camp. Not on the side of the mountain. Give the wayward slough time to find his bearings, time to feel the consequences, to grow his own legs, for his own good. This is the Mount Everest of all your days, you are getting acclimated at base camp, and you need to know your limitations and strengths, I am your guide, says The Lord, do you know my voice? Are you tethered in with those who will not cut the line on you? Are you yoked with me, or another? The mountain will reveal your alliance faithful, but then it is to late, these things need resolved at base camp. In your trial run, on better days, did you not see the frozen monuments of failure, miscalculation, sleepiness, and disorientation, riddling the landscape? Forever marking the days of former storms, reminding all who pass by, the cost of simple failures vary.
You lose a glove in the yard, you have a cold hand, you lose a glove on mount Everest, you could lose a hand. Even the guides themselves are found there, in the debri fields of mis-step. But, I am the guide that has conquered the mountain, that will never leave you, nor forsake you. I will carry you when you need carried, I will bring you through to the mountain top. I will guide you through the storm. I will never cut the line. I will bring those with you, but YOU must be tethered to me, and no one else, nothing else. Seeking to save your life you will lose it, to lose yourself in me, you will find your life, abundant. Then you shall be the beacon on the mountain top showing those below you the way. Go now while it is early, for the neck of the journey will bottle up in desperation, when those slow to awaken realize, time is of the essence.
The Lord says that His glory shall rest upon His people, kings will bow … the Lord says to Lift up your heads and look, the anointing breaks the yoke, the heavy burdens so many are burdened down with. In one moment, at His Word … burdens shall slip from off the neck, and shoulders, of those who seek the light, they will see His light upon the Church triumphant, from distant places, deep in the caverns of darkness, and crevasses of depravity. They’ll move toward the light set in great contrast against the night. They shall be brighter than the stars, those who abide in Him, the Living Word.
The Lord says that From this time forward many of you will no longer make general blanket statements for the sake of the masses, your words will be surgical, timely, and ordered, executed precisely, the way the Lord would command. Knees will shake at the precision of it all, as hearts will not only be revealed, but plans to deceive you, and to arrange your demise, shall bring immediate judgments. In many cases, while others beside them are left standing, they shall be astounded, they shall audibly cry out and confess their sins. Revelation, knowledge, and understanding will flood into the confessor that will overwhelm some like Paul, who was incapacitated for days. You will find yourself caring for some in such a state, whose own lifestyle they will have to hide from, in order to stay alive.
While Even now suspicions mar the relationships of many, as do misunderstandings, the Lord will bless His servants with dreams, visions, and supernatural knowings of the motives of others. As New Testament saints were guided by God through dreams and visions to meet and speak with certain individuals, so this same anointing to know – shall be prevalent in subsequent meetings, of the unknowns, in divine appointments. In so much, that you will ask The Lord about the ones He didn’t speak to you about, and this is by design, that He might lead you more carefully; and it will develop in you a more concise walk, in His way, that will uncover the treasures spoken about in His word, treasures hidden in darkness, and it will be those hidden in deep darkness that will see a great light. Is not that light Christ in you … the Hope and Glory?
I have an article called the Mountain Of The Lord. It speaks of the tributaries and streams that flow from the mountain into the river. Everything that is relevant, a pure word, and that which sets the trends of the earth comes from this place. The river that flows into the valley is from the mountain, but it becomes compromised as it courses through the city where sewage and run off begins to add to it. This is the river flowing into the institutions of men where high thoughts that exalt themselves above the knowledge and wisdom of God, begin to contribute into the flow of what should be holy and pristine; but, rather, adds murkiness to the river. This is the traditions of men making the word of God non effective. Mark 7:13. BUT, the crisp fresh flow of the Spirit comes from the high place. It begins with forgetting those things that are behind and pressing on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God, in Christ Jesus. It contributes to the life of God, those that pursue him in their seeking, heal the waters in the midst of God’s people from whom living waters flow.
Out of the secret place, where we go to seek His face, we encounter spiritual weather systems that pour down their precipitation, in what we can spiritually parallel with the form of mist, snow, and rains, from heaven’s sky. The call of the Spirit is to impart the mysteries of God, sometimes like a mist, a flow of impressions; sometimes like snow pack that releases its measure in season, sometimes like the pouring rain, all at once overflowing the gullies, gushing down the mountain, in some places it is held up like a pent up flood in natural dams … a trickle, ready to become a deluge at any moment.
The Way of The Mountain
Is lonely at times, and barren of natural comforts, yet, rich with atmosphere as timbers, silently sway … Singularly, but increasingly corporately, the Mountain of the Lord (in the Spirit) is being pursued by a generation of believers as the sound of His voice, like many waters, is increasingly being heard flowing from out of the heart of His people. With it the sound of the high mountain winds that blow through the tall pines, that hollowed airy sigh that joins the roar of white water rapids crashing down through the rocks below. The sound of many waters echo, as they rush through the canyons descending from the place where rivers are made. This only comes after our solemn expedition up the mountain, rising in spirit as when vapor ascends invisible, then descends like the mist, settling above the streams in every ravine. When the waters descend they roar in progression. This is THE DEEP calling unto DEEP. For more on this article go to THE RIVER DOWN STREAM.
The gift of prophecy edifies, exhorts, and comforts I Corinthians 14:3
It should lead you to Christ, build you up and strengthen you in your walk with God; always, leading us to the Word of God. It is the ministry of the Holy Spirit to convict of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment to come. John 16:8-11
That being said, the scripture also, says that He [God] confirms His word with signs and wonders following.
The prophet seer, sees, and is able to interpret what he/she sees and teaches it to the Church. The visuals God gives to a prophet/seer brings continuity to the message and is often multidimensional. The word, vision, or dream speaks in parallels and parables. I read, where it was mistakenly said that modern prophets don’t foretell. Only, forth tell, meaning they call those things that are not as though they were, according to what the Spirit shows them is God’s will on earth. This is true, but as far as the foretelling goes, you would have to explain that to St. John who wrote the Revelation of Jesus Christ, from an encounter he had on the Isle Patmos. In it he “foretold” the last days. Also, in the new testament, after the ascension of Christ, (in case that makes a difference for someone) A prophet fore told of a famine. Because of that the church was able to prepare for it.
Acts 11:27- 28
During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) Notice Agabus was not of the original 12 apostles. (Just for those who say the gifts of the Holy Spirit were only possessed by the 12 apostles and died out with them.)
The prophet of God is capable of foretelling to warn God’s people in order that they might watch, and pray, to be diligent in their walk with him, and to be sober. Often times we are used to give words of knowledge regarding future events, in order to be prepared for a storm, or famine in the land. This is God, through His Holy Spirit, giving us instruction to do what we need to do, to best process, live through, and apply wisdom in the days ahead.
Another form of foretelling is often found in a dream, or prophecy, that details an event that can only be seen after the matter, in other words it is only seen in retro-spec when a sign is enigmatically wrapped in a prophetic word, or more often in a dream. This is what I call a prophetic marker to pay attention to the message of that dream, vision, or prophecy. So the message is actually more important than the prophetic markers in it, those markers are there to point to the season we are in, when we begin to see them. This is for us to pay attention to what has transpired. The old testament is full of that kind of prophecy, in the stories of the patriarchs, in the books of the prophets, in the psalms, hidden prophecy describing Jesus the son of God, even paralleling end time events.
After Christ came into the earth these passages in Isaiah, and the Psalms- even the stories of Isaac, and Rebekah, all reveal enigmatic detail of the life of Christ, his crucifixion, death, Resurrection, and second coming. It is the same thing today in prophetic parallels in current events that take place before our eyes. Often those events have in them prophetic parallels that warn or foretell of the days or years to come. They are referred to as “Harbingers” as defined in Webster’s Free Dictionary-
There is one on this site written about called The Tall Ship Bounty and Sandy Enigmas. These are historical events that recycle themselves as messengers for the days to come, in hidden enigmas the wisdom of God unlocks through his prophets of the day. One famous harbinger written about in a best seller book called The Harbinger https://www.facebook.com/TheOfficialHarbinger Points to events surrounding 9:11 that every American should read. Prophets who use the prophetic gift for their own gain, fame, or profit, will be judged. All that the seer/ prophet is to accomplish in all of his “seeing” is for the purposes of God to bring glory to his name, preaching the Gospel of reconciliation through His Son Yeshuah, the Lord Jesus Christ.
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.

The TALL SHIP BOUNTY is in the news today as an investigation wraps up that examined why she sank off of the banks of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, during hurricane Sandy. A “generator” failed that was pumping water from the vessel. Of course that was not the reason Bounty sank. It was a storm unpredictable, and a series of decisions made before and after the failed generators. Much like America is facing today. We are running on economic GENERATORS, and paper money to keep this vessel a float. Will they prevail the storms, or will they fail in the midst of them? Read on.
The details embedded in this story have interesting connections and coincidences that make you wonder, “Is the Sinking of the Tall Ship Bounty a harbinger of things to come?”
har·bin·ger : Noun. A person or thing that announces or signals the approach of another. A forerunner of something. Synonyms herald – forerunner – precursor – messenger – portent.
The ships of Tarshish (seafaring vessels) were your ocean caravans. Your island warehouse was filled to the brim! “But look! Your oarsmen are rowing your ship of state into a hurricane! Your mighty vessel flounders in the heavy eastern gale. You are shipwrecked in the heart of the sea! Everything is lost — your riches and wares, your sailors and helmsmen, your ship builders, merchants, and warriors. On that day of vast ruin, everyone on board sinks into the depths of the sea. “Your cities by the sea tremble as your helmsmen cry out in terror. All the oarsmen abandon their ships; the sailors and helmsmen come to stand on the shore.
From today’s story-
“… Around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 27, about 300 miles east of Virginia Beach, Virginia, the captain made his move: Instead of continuing with his original plan to stay east of the storm, he ordered the crew to change course. He wanted to pilot the ship northwest of Sandy to harness its winds. Turning more westerly, the boat crossed the path of the oncoming hurricane.”

Anywhere you look in the new testament where witchcraft (a work of the flesh) is trying to embed itself in the church, or among those who are in leadership, or a move of God, you will see it dealt with forth right. No one is left to themselves to work it out. Especially, where deception is involved. The slave girl who had a spirit of divination (python) where the Apostle Paul commands it to come out, didn’t even get the benefit of counsel before he directly took authority over that spirit that sought to defile their work in Philippi.
I think Paul understood the backlash that would come when he dealt with something that controlled the city, and would rather have not “rattled the cage” to get some work done; but, at some point he recognized python’s operation, unchecked, would only serve “it” in the end, for the people would then think that the spirit of the slave girl, and the spirit of the apostle, and his works, were one. Paul did what needed to be done. For a while he suffered for it, but great power was awarded the move of God in that city for what he stood up to. Climaxing into an earthquake that shook loose chains of the imprisoned, and set them free. This is the end result for having a back bone, and standing up against a spirit that masks itself as “acceptable” to move and operate among us.
Taking authority over the spirit of divination (python) will restore the power and effectiveness of the Gospel over the regions it has control over, but brace yourself for the craziness that will unearth when exposed … See Acts 16. Speaking of turning a city upside down … Yet, worth the ride to see the mighty hand of God work mightily among us, in our fellowships, ministries, cities, and even in nations, that have been under such control. When python seeks to infiltrate a work (moving in like the snake that it is) there is nothing more that can be done but to face it head on. Python is not for the faint of heart. In fact, as you can see in Paul’s experience the accusations began to fly. Yet, greater is he (Christ) that is in us then he that is in this world! For it is written that no weapon formed against us shall prosper, every tongue that rises up in judgement shall be condemned or proven wrong. This is your inheritance IN Christ, so come what may, in the end, all will be well and our hands free of blood guilt for dutifully warning. God will restore His power where defeat, and powerlessness, has taken hold.
The Silent Killer
Python is a serpent, like any snake it is a silent killer that suddenly appears, and when it does we need to be instant in season and out, ready to take authority over its power. The ultimate assignment of Python is to squeeze, swallow and destroy. The most disturbing victim of python are new moves of the Spirit of God and new converts. Like all snakes serpents eat eggs, new beginnings are destroyed, when a spirit of python is at large, underdeveloped Christians, and callings are swallowed up, by the demon spirit python. The carnage of premature deaths are left in python’s wake, while the nest of new beginnings are plundered. The Church should be an un-penetrable nest where destinies develop. Another manifestation of Python is the squeezing out of spiritual life and suffocation of spiritual gifting; a rendering of powerlessness, and paralyses of ministry, and good works. Despair, disparagement, hopelessness, and spiritual darkness, envelope as python swallows its prey into increasing darkness; eventually, methodically, digesting the call, and purposes of God in his victims life. The Good news is that God often brings a rash of wake up calls to shake us awake, for He is always at work on our behalf desiring that no man should perish. A stern word is a blessing, a severe warning the same. What ever it takes. He is the author and finisher of our faith, if we are on the wrong path he will work on our behalf, it is not always a sunny day when God works, but it is always a bright and shining one.
When we as Christians (who are the temple of the Holy Ghost) open the ports of our eyes, ears, and sensual courses, to unholy, displays of darkness, drawing upon those things to entertain us, we invite demons to influence, and defile, the sacred altar of our heart. This is us releasing our free will over to spiritual darkness that begins to access what ever reach of authority one has to defile others. If that authority has access to the pulpit, to teach, preach, and lead worship- Python then begins to signal Leviathan the King of all the Sons of Pride to divide from the congregation the deliverers as the twisting spirit then promotes all that is vile and wicked. While the true move of the spirit is suffocated, and what was begun by God is taken over by a spirit of divination, drawing attention to itself, as it perpetuates its supernatural powers, with the stamp of christian approval; seemingly, saying all the right things, just as the damsel did in Paul’s time. The position and influence one has that is defiled by a spirit of divination opens the door to seduce and oppress those under them. To the depth we have walked in spiritual awareness, warfare, and gifting, so to that degree shall this defilement occupy and displace the anointing with a counter kind. In this condition what ever place or platform we have been given becomes devalued by the powers of a lesser being. To gain back taken ground, the spirit of python must be exposed and there is no other recourse but to face it at all cost. Can poison and good waters pour as one? No they cannot, they should not, but in the human vessel they can for a season, until the finger of God brings judgment to those vessels for mixing the holy with the unholy, and causing defilement in the midst of the people.
The Message (MSG)
“But why do you let that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet mislead my dear servants into Cross-denying, self-indulging religion? I gave her a chance to change her ways, but she has no intention of giving up a career in the god-business. I’m about to lay her low, along with her partners, as they play their sex-and-religion games. The bastard offspring of their idol-whoring I’ll kill. Then every church will know that appearances don’t impress me. I x-ray every motive and make sure you get what’s coming to you.
Entwined In Two Spiritual Streams.
We often think that witchcraft approaches us in black hats and green haze.Not so, would that it did, so many now would not be deceived! But, what the Church is dealing with now days is starting to look the ugly that it is. In contrast, the spirit of divination is deceptively presented by those who have willfully, or stupidly, defiled themselves with the occult, and have spoon fed it to the masses from Church pulpits and platforms. Eventually, what you will see at our alters (and all ready do even now) is not of God, but a form of palatable divination for one purpose, and that is to spread it undetected. Paul, in the 16th chapter of Acts became grieved in his spirit. Though the slave girl was proclaiming the truth, and publicly acknowledging God as the most high, yet she made her master money by soothsaying. Her life was intertwined in two spiritual streams.
We cannot serve two masters, bitter and sweet water should not come out of one vessel. Gazing into evil by being a follower of a television program, a series of movies, or books that glorifies the occult, and sexual immorality, and then turn around and participate in worship or prayer services in Church is “mixing” the occult with worship. It is a Baal Christianity! Baal – Hebrew meaning: One who swallows. Notice that when Jesus warned the 7 churches in revelation to repent he mentioned, Baalam, (he who swallows the people) and the teachings of the Nicolaitions (destroy or conquers the people) and the sexually immoral and promiscuous Jezebel (one who exalts Baal who is he who swallows). All these spirits work in our churches today, all of them tied into python, who is under Leviathan (the sea serpent) the twister among the masses- the king of all the sons of pride. Isaiah 27:1 the twisting spirit. Job 41:1-34 What do serpents do? They BITE, SQUEEZE, SWALLOW, and there by DESTROY their PREY. Jesus hates what these deceivers do to His Church and will destroy them, he will put out into utter darkness those who are their followers, and practitioners, and they will have their part in the lake of fire. Revelation 21:8
Revelation 22:15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
John 9:4 What to do? Whosoever, calls upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved!! Call upon him while he may be found. We must work in the day while it is daylight, for the night comes where no man can work.
Eventually, we will have to go to bed in the condition we are in as night falls around us, and we have allowed our candle to be replaced by a false light, dimming as darkness grows. Those who can work in the night are the ones who have the light in them.
Luke 11:34-35 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. In another place We will be known by our fruits, not every one that says Lord, Lord, enters into the kingdom of heaven, but those who do the will of my Father. Beloved, believe not every spirit …
NO greater love is this that a man lays his life down for his friends. At the point that we are willing to lose the love of our friends, and for that matter our family, to speak the truth to them in love, though the truth is not loved, and they choose to abandon us, it is in the hope that God’s word does not return void … but will continue to work on them that they will choose the way of life, and in it find their path steady, and may even pray for us, or help one day, when we fall down … isn’t it better to lose a friend for a moment, because we told them the truth, in order that we might gain a brother or sister for eternity?
Galatians 5:19-21 (NKJV) Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Hating Even the Garment SPOTTED by the flesh.
The scripture is very clear on what kind of activity warrants what kind of action, there are behaviors we ignore and let others work out their wrinkles and there are behaviors we approach with correction, somehow the church has let discipline go, and any correction is a shock to the system. People are so use to feel good everything, they can’t handle it. A mature leadership will know when more teaching is required, or when patience is needed, or when a shout of warning will save a life, or a yank on the shirt collar keeps them from a snake pit. Understanding that these are forms of mercy. Don not most of us respond appropriately, naturally, when warning some one of danger? How is it that a bit of truth now days is treated like it was an ax let loose on a doll house? I think we need to check how we feel when we hear the truth in warning, and measure it, not on how it was given, but how we have a problem receiving “hard sayings”. Asking ourselves why our reactions are the way they are. Perhaps what we differentiate between a tug and a beating (of the flames off our back) is dependent upon how much darkness we have allowed to envelop in our lives. Head lights in the drive way are not as harsh to the eyes, when standing in the sun. It takes more adjustment for our eyes, while standing in utter darkness. Often times it is not the message that is abrupt, but the condition it finds us in when we hear it, that’s affronted.
Acts 13:10 sorcery trying to undermine the work of the Holy Spirit.
Jude 1: 23 I love you enough, I will risk being burned.
Jude 1:4 grace of God turned into a license for immorality.
Revelation 22:14-15 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs,[unclean] those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
This article is a teaching on the ministry and power of the Holy Spirit, and shares true life experiences of “When devils cry out”, in a ministry, that has brought the full Gospel of Jesus Christ into Jails, prisons, and forgotten people, on the street, and in institutions where oppression often thrives.
This is one area that many have overlooked in ministry, and the reason why many are frustrated, knowing the promise of God regarding healing and restoration, but not seeing lasting results in their prayers, for those with illnesses, and addictions. Is their a demon behind every tree, as the saying goes? You decide, but remember “THEY” would rather you didn’t believe they existed at all. When Devils Cry Out.
