In Acts Chapter 16 we read about the young woman that attached her self to Paul’s entourage. Paul, who was called to Philippi to do an Apostolic work, became greatly troubled by what seemed to be this young ladies worship and shouts for people to come hear the way of salvation. What could possibly be wrong with that? She was a fortune teller possessed with the spirit called pythos. In this podcast:
Deana teaches on spiritual warfare, the small time operatives of Satan, and the principalities they are working for. Be not ignorant of the Devils devices! See how this same spirit is operating among us today, and how you can identify The Python Resistance, working among us.
Podcast: The Python Resistance.
The Python Resistance is an act of warfare (in the spirit realm) that targets apostolic moves of God, or new beginnings. From church government, to street outreach, or bible study, this operative is stirred up at start up. Listen to- The Python Resistance and get all the down load on this teaching that will help you recognize if that satanic work is undermining what you are being called to do, in your own life. – Deana Barnes
While I believe the prayers of God’s people can ramp down the events at our border, and I hope they will- still there is an issue that must be resolved. Would that Presidents before Trump had dealt with this issue. The humanity that is marching towards our border is an issue that was inevitable, the minute any country south of our border would fall into crises, and begin to crumble. But no one did anything about it by enforcing our laws, or changing them for the times we are in. Certainly not the Obama administration. Rather, trafficking and slavery of all kinds have had full reign to exploit men, women, and children, desperate for a better life. Including the influx of unattended children during the last administration. I saw this in a dream where South American children were spilling into our lawn, out of the woods in 2011. This is our fault for not having strong borders. Perhaps the lawmakers, in Washington D.C. was benefiting from it more than we would like to know. What is more bone chilling for us all is the terrorist, the bad actors, the ruthless cartel, that is infiltrating our country. People taking money, that don’t belong here, filling our streets to protest, meddling in our elections.
In February 2016, I had a jolting experience that turned out to be one of the most profound visions I’ve ever experienced. As an intercessor for this nation, and for many nations over the years, I can tell you that God has shown me many things, and by the way anyone desiring to be a prophet need only enlist as a lowly intercessor who will answer the cry of the Spirit day and night to intercede. This is when you will see great and mighty things when co-laboring with the greatest intercessor of all. I don’t make predictions, I make intercession. In intercessions I some times see international events that are predictable through the view of a prophetic lens. Often, seeing in part, I don’t completely understand it all. America’s Home Invasion was a vision of an event that seem to last for about 10 horrifying minutes. Where I believed I was actually experiencing and engaged in what I was seeing. Unlike some visions, your feet are on the ground and you know your watching a heavenly movie. While prophetic dreams are dreams, you wake up from, this experience was unlike either. I wasn’t in prayer nor sleep, as you will understand listening to this audio. What I do know is that this audio reading of an article post dated in March of 2016 is more relevant now than ever. I believe God wanted me to see and feel the fearful reality of what is happening at our borders in a parable of a home invasion. While seeing the humanity and suffering, on the other side. Why it is happening. What we can do to make the best of a very bad situation. Perhaps, the wisdom of Solomon can be given us to fix it. Where bad actors are chased off, and families separated are reunited. Because we did this. Perhaps points in this parable have already been happening, and coming to pass, for after all it is almost three years now since this vision occurred. But as I said, in the article back then it is an invasion and it is going to ramp up. Praying for peace at our borders! It is all certainly coming to a head and America needs to address it once and for all.

A Prophetic Dream
There are many ways we can describe the Lord Jesus. He is our Messiah, the Good Shepherd, Savior, and Prince of Peace. But in turn there are many ways He can describe us. The Body of Christ, Sheep of His Pasture, the Bride, even His Temple. For we are refered to as the Temple of the Holy Ghost. In this podcast is a reading and commentary on a dream where God speaks to His family using an eye opening name for His people, responsible for the end time harvest. We’ve got to know who we are, we’ve got to see what we have. Many are not going to be ready to be a part of this end-time harvest, though they have zeal. Remember, Jesus had to tell them to lift up their eyes to look and see that the harvest was ready. Because they were blinded by their scheduled events. When harvest normally is. How can we learn to walk in, what comes next? Don’t miss this prophetic podcast with Deana Barnes, that has already had an impact at Remnant Nation Radio.
A podcast version of the article- The Ahab Jezebel Modus Operandi, with added commentary.
The Jezebel School of Cosmetology.
Could it be that most of everything we’ve been taught about “The Jezebel Spirit” is incomplete? And is actually often twisted by the very same darkness that animates her works in the earth? Have books and sermons dedicated to teachings on Jezebel missed the whole point, time and time again? I suggest to you that many of them have, serving to create the same kind of atmosphere that Jezebel promoted (punishing obedience to God) that existed in her day. This operative is bigger than we understand, and is enabling a world movement, far beyond what we could have ever imagined. Many have said it is all about power with Jezebel, I say the word clearly shows us, it is much much more. In fact as there was a kingdom under her and Ahab’s oppression, so most of Christianity, needlessly, suffers the cause and effect of this demonic power. Listen to this podcast by Deana Barnes.

Oh how the waster thought to come and destroy, how he sets up road blocks for pillage. But I have averted him says the Lord, I created the waster to destroy- covenant stays his hand.
Know that you are my Ambassador, my representative. As I have said, and I have given you to carry my name, and I have given you my name. This is the key of David. I am he that liveth and was dead. And behold I am alive for ever more. And I have the keys of death and of hell. Opening doors no man can shut, and shutting doors no man can open.
These signs will follow them that believe. In my name … And I have seen the mud slinging, land upon your garment, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that you have continuously determined to put on. How the enemy despises purity. I wash away reproach, I will remove (what has been cast upon you) the stain of contempt- washed in washings and renewals.
This from the water of my word as you spend time in me. Does not glory rest upon the persecuted ones? Let my spirit renew your mind, says the Lord. In me you can walk in continuous joy, that the world doesn’t understand. This is that fruit, of the first fruit cluster. Love, joy, peace … That greets one another with a holy kiss in my kingdom. You will know them by their fruits in the face of adversity. For the shield of faith distances the approach of despair. Though it come, faith is its mighty foe! See the pearl of great price? In your garment I have sewn them in the hem and borders, many; to memorialize the sacrifice in preferring me, above all else … Oh look and see- the Bride gives herself to all preperations!
Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith Jehovah.
Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thy habitations; spare not: lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes.
For thou shalt spread aboard on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall possess the nations, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth; and the reproach of thy widowhood shalt thou remember no more.
For thy Maker is thy husband; Jehovah of hosts is his name: and the Holy One of Israel is thy Redeemer; the God of the whole earth shall he be called.
For Jehovah hath called thee as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even a wife of youth, when she is cast off, saith thy God.
For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.
In overflowing wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting lovingkindness will I have mercy on thee, saith Jehovah thy Redeemer.
For this is as the waters of Noah unto me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah shall no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.
For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my lovingkindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed, saith Jehovah that hath mercy on thee.
O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will set thy stones in fair colors, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.
And I will make thy pinnacles of rubies, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy border of precious stones.
And all thy children shall be taught of Jehovah; and great shall be the peace of thy children.
In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee.
Behold, they may gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall because of thee.
Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the fire of coals, and bringeth forth a weapon for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness which is of me, saith Jehovah.
American Standard Version, 1901
Spiritual gifts are given in seed form, distributed by the Holy Spirit. WISDOM seeks them out. Understanding matures you in them, and knowledge brings skill. It’s the three legged stool of potential. One missing leg will throw off the balance.
None of this means a thing unless our gifts are activated by faith! Stepping out! These signs will follow them that believe, in my name they shall … Mk 16:15-17 Beloved desire spiritual gifts, but then I show you a more excellent way. Love, love, love. Heals all wounds, wins all battles, endures all things; it doesn’t give up, it is not puffed up … desires Christ to be perfected in others. Love will lay it all down, throw the crown to go find you. Shed the robe, take up the cross, to free, heal, and keep you! *John let go, died alone, so CHRIST could have what was John’s own … brethren. That was love.
The gifts are a promise, a token, and part. It’s not where you finish, it’s only the start. A portion of heaven come from above, the maiden voyage of Noah’s dove … of all these what remains is love, tested, and tried- of all these things endure and abide … in LOVE. Remember Joseph’s coat and colors, how he was despised of his own brothers? They put him into foreign hands, the prince a slave in heathen lands …They will call you names, the lord of flies, your coat of colors will be despised, but you will learn to shake that dirt, and take his name to the ends of the earth. For a heart in famine will listen close, they won’t deny the Holy Ghost … to feed them. For whom they rejected will have HIS day, His light will shine and won’t go away. And nations will come with open sack, and the ones that bow will have no lack. For Joseph the Prince they left to die, is the apple of His Father’s eye. No less are you no less am I, whom love Him. So let not bitter the bitter thing be, call upon heaven and deeply breath! Remember His sacrifice, remember the blood, remember love comes in like a flood, let it have you.
When John was not yet cast into prison. –
He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. *He must increase, but I must decrease.
-John The Baptizer

Warning Dream: Treating Holy Things As Common. Call A solemn Assembly. Teach Them Fear. Sin of Insolence. Mishandling the Word of Life.
Job 28:28 And to man He said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.'”
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction
America, full of the knowledge of God. But do we know HIM?
I had a dream. A guy in his 30’s with an influence over young people was sitting with what seemed like a team of peers getting ready to do bible study ministry. They actually had those backward priest collars on, but the collars were broken at the voice box, or Adam’s apple. To be blunt they all had a frat brat air about them. Sorry, don’t know a better description. Any way, young sort of prideful theologians. I walked up to them in the corner of a very large library, in a place that was part of a vast open mall of sanctuaries, and auditoriums; a lot going on at once, like every Christian I ever knew was in this *mall, representing Christian America. About the time I approached this frat pack of theologians, I heard the lead guy say, “Yea, we’re going to go speak in tongues.” I walked up to him and said, “Cool, so you’re Spirit filled?”
Act 2:4 And they were all FILLED with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Speaking in tongues is evidence of being Spirit filled.)
I caught him off guard. He said, “Uhh no”, and looked around at his friends like where did SHE come from? Which I get all the time; anyway, to the young indignant one I said, “Well do you want to be Spirit filled?” He got real nervous and started looking around at his friends like, this woman is crazy! I’m thinking, what religious universe have these people been locked up in? I told him, “You can joke around about a lot of things, and maybe get away with making fun of people who pray in tongues, but you should never allow yourself or anyone else around you, to joke about the Holy Ghost.”
Hebrews 10: 29
Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, shall be thought them worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, by which he was sanctified, a common thing, and has done insult unto the Spirit of grace?
At that moment I heard a crack of thunder and could see a huge flat screen TV showing a weather report of the United States.
I saw clusters of storms light up the area above various cities and states across the US. The map was green like spring but this dream came last fall. Washington State really lit up in the western part of it, I thought of the Seattle area. The other cluster of storms that stood out seemed to be in the lower Missouri, Mississippi region. They lit up more than other places lighting up all over the map, they seemed like prolonged electrical storms.
America is too common with Holy things!
I thought the young men to be lacking in the fear of the Lord. If we as Christian ministers were priests of the old testament altar, many of us would be dragged out by the feet with shepherds crooks. Embolden to blaspheme, tossing out railing accusations against dignitaries, mocking the Holy Ghost, mocking His servants, mocking His prophets; being scornful, and disrespectful. Christians acting despicably calling themselves ambassadors of Christ, but they are brutish, narcissistic, embellishers, clouds with out rain; throwing their titles around for entitlements. And their degrees, as if that is what qualifies them for the work of the ministry. When being qualified comes, only, by setting ourselves apart, in seeking the face of God. surrendering to obedience; Relying upon His ability, having nothing to do with our own. Living a Godly life, hating even the garment, (the outer accessories) of Christian life, spotted by the flesh. I thought of all the churches who have clerics that wear the white band, to set themselves apart, but these were not set apart in their speech, revealing the condition of their heart. The white band broken at their voice box.
Prayers of repentance and judgments in the land.
I don’t believe some of these places, I saw in the dream, are more wicked than others, but they are more susceptible to trouble than others, when wickedness in the Church reaches its tipping point. While others have judgements poised against them, it is up to us to pray!
Narrow the way.
In our world, moods, opinions, and attitudes, can shift in waves over night. Because we are bonded together by social media and the internet. A story or news item portrayed in just the right way, can sway the masses, left or right. We can glorify God one moment, and grieve the Holy Spirit in the very next breath, by agreeing with false portrayals of what is suppose to be truth! Insolence, and the lack of the fear of the Lord, and the mishandling of sacred things, have moved Christian America to lean the wrong way. Being to common and careless with the mysteries and treasures of the king dom, joking foolishly, the bible calls it foolish jesting.
Straight is the gate and narrow is the way, that leads to life and few there will be who find it. Leaning left or leaning right is not the way! Wide is the gate and broad is the path to destruction and many there’ll be who will find it. Mathew 7:13-14 HIS way, in all things, is the hidden path found through Christ. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life!
When the Holy Spirit lifts.
Where HE is not, there goes the voice of warning, there goes all the gifts of perception, and fore-site, there goes the voice of one calling in the wilderness, making straight the paths of the Lord, there goes the ones holding back judgments.
The Lord has departed.
When He departs He takes the lamp stands with Him. His sheep know His voice they will go out and be lead into green pastures. It is one of the most silent mass moves of God on earth, when sheep are lead out. They are taken out of places where Christ in them, manifesting, is rejected. The good shepherd leads them out like sheep! You could gaze at a hill covered with them. Bend down and tie your shoe laces, zip your coat, and look back up, just to see that the sheep on a distant hill are no where to be seen. The remnant that is attached to (no thing or place but Him) go where he goes. They are always the ones found with Him. Seemingly, vanished in thin air, when He moves them out. When Jesus removes His lamp stands from a church, His people in that place that know Him, know when the SHEPHERD’S voice is gone, Jesus said, “My sheep know my voice and a stranger they will not follow.” His mercy never fails and no matter what or where- whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. He remains a very present help in times of trouble as long as we have breath. We need Him now more than ever, and we need the blessed Holy Spirit of comfort and truth. The Christian mall of America needs to understand the Spirit of the Fear Of the Lord. Let us who pray, do so.
Isaiah 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge, and the spirit of the fear of the Lord.
Call a Solemn Assembly!
The young men in the dream were found in the library. Ever learning and never coming to the truth. All the books in that library didn’t bring them to the truth they needed, to live a blameless life. And brazen they were on how they handled God’s Holy Spirit and His Saints. Would that these young theologians would be as the twelve, Paul met in Ephesus! Teachable!
Paul was received by a group of disciples that only knew John’s baptism!
And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, AND prophesied. And all the men were about twelve.
John’s Baptism: Water baptism is a baptism of repentance, otherwise described as John’s baptism. Until this day many are only baptised in this baptism, rejecting the fact there is another baptism often received by the laying on of hands. It’s the baptism John referred to as the baptism of the Holy Ghost and of Fire, that Yeshuah baptizes us with.
Even during Paul’s ministry years after the Ascension of Christ, there were still believers in John’s baptism only; as there are today.
In water baptism we are publicly repenting of our sins, as a witness to all that we are dead, buried, and raised, with Christ, as a new creation; old things are passed away and behold all things becoming new. As we go down and come up in the water, we display that. Confessing our sins is the beginning of our journey with Jesus; if we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sin, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. The water depicts that cleansing, as well. Coming up from the water sheds light on the understanding that we are a new creation, a new man or woman; therefore, we should live our lives as dead to our old nature. This is called repentance which simply means to ” turn away from.” Water baptism is not what saves us but it is what describes our salvation, and is a public testimony of our decision for Christ, following HIS example in water baptism. As we look forward to the redemption of our bodies, in the hope of the resurrection. Still, new testament saints called it John’s baptism.
Life in the letter only, is like having a sailboat in a waterless sea.
Jesus’s baptism is a Spirit and fire baptism, received by the laying on of hands. Or by faith in believing upon Jesus while hearing God’s word. It is an event that is not silent or without demonstration, in other words you WILL KNOW when you become Spirit filled! We will see that in the passage below. The Holy Spirit baptism can come before water, and even during water baptism. But, not before repentance or a decision to follow Christ, is made. It is an event we yield to in receiving. The Holy Spirit and fire baptism gives us what we need to walk in power, be purified, and taught in truth; have supernatural comfort in separations and sorrows; and a supernatural boldness to testify in the face of persecutions. The Holy Spirit disperses supernatural giftings among the saints, beginning with unknown tongues and branching out from there. If the church can’t get tongues right, the least of all the gifts, how will they get anything else right? As it is with our own tongue in conversation. Tame that tongue that sets off the fires of hell, and everything else falls into line. Get the gift of tongues operating fluently in God’s divine order, let that ministry rise up, and unbelievers will come into belief, for the scripture says that the gift of tongues is for the unbeliever. We can be believers in unbelief over many things. Tongues interpreted is a sign. Let the heavenly language flow! Building up your most Holy faith by praying in the Holy Ghost! As Paul said, “I will pray in the Spirit, and I will pray in my understanding, also.” All that believe the Holy Spirit comes with out demonstration, have very little demonstration of power in their own life. It is the same for those that believe it is God’s will for them to be sick. Or that God does not always desire his people to be well. It never seems to be God’s will for them to be well, in their lives. However, those who believe He wants his people to be healthy, and whole, have more instances of healing in their lives. Yet, after all we have been given to know Christ and Him crucified, and the great benefits of our salvation, many are still not advancing past these elementary teachings of faith.
Let us go on from the elementary teachings of baptism, and the laying on of hands …
Getting it right and moving on,
Hebrews 6:1-2 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
Like the theologians in my dream, and even those in Pentecost – many Spirit filled Churches are stuck on tongues. So stuck they don’t even want them to manifest any more. This is a sure sign of immaturity in the church, as much as it is when people are not understanding gifts of the Holy Spirit of God, or the fivefold ministry. When an assembly is too focused (against or for) manifestations of the Spirit, they are weak and immature. For these things are given to supply every need, that each part supplies. If no one understands the ministries set among us as it is written in Ephesians 4, to equip the saints; we will not grow up into the head, nor shall we ever be unified. For it is clearly written in this passage that this is what these ministries do. If all you have in your assembly is a pastor, then run!! You will never mature in Christ! For this same reason we can never expect to be unified with any who call themselves Christian, that rejects the baptism of the Lord Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit and with fire. Of them who say the apostles and prophets are no more. For it takes these anointings along with the rest, to accomplish unification, by equipping the saints, who can then mature into the head!
Various denominations can intermingle all day long, but all they usually do is agree to disagree about who, mainly? The person and endtimes ministry of the Holy Ghost! The only way a people can come together in Christ of one mind, is by the power of the Holy Spirit! I will never agree NOT to ask any one, if they have received the Holy Spirit since they have believed, in order to keep the peace! I am not ashamed of Him, the Holy Spirit of God.
Churches get stuck on the next level after the in filling, and I mean many!
If all we can do is focus on what our parts are, and what they can do, such as the function of the hand and foot … How can we focus on just being whole and useable unto God? Books and DVDs, podcasts and websites, classes, upon classes, all about being what you are called to be, rather than doing what you are called to do!
Not only that, but teaching people there is not a Spirit fire baptism is more than just an error. It is encouraging the saints of God to obey the great commission with out being endued with POWER from on High. Jesus said, wait until you are! Any minister that calls themself a follower of Christ, that rejects the baptism of the Holy Spirit is ill equipped, I don’t care how many certificates and honorary doctorates they have! Water and Spirit baptism are separate experiences that can happen in rapid succession, but the Holy Spirit ALWAYS comes after a decision for Christ is made. Whether it’s a matter of seconds or days. Seek all He has for you! Be faithful in the little things, God will trust to you more! When trouble comes will Christian America be able to weather storms with out the help of the comforter and the Spirit of truth? Without being endued with power from on high? Will teachings against the work of the Holy Spirit of God prevail in America? Will the youth of tomorrow have no need for Him? But, actually cross the line treating Him and God’s servants with contempt? Pray it won’t be so. Warn them. Warn them. Warn them.
Acts 10:30- AKJV
The Gentiles Hear the Good News
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that fears him, and works righteousness, is accepted by him. The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) That word, I say, you know, … How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly; Not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of the quick and dead. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whoever believes in him shall receive remission of sins.
How much more do we need the same Holy Ghost and power Jesus walked in!
(Joel 2:28-32; John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Acts 2:1-13; Acts 19:1-7)
While Peter yet spoke these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
What Malls mean In dreams.
*malls in dreams (when symbolic), speak to a trending/collection of thought, belief, or popular world views, and/ or attitudes of the times; of a town, city, democracy, community, region, or nation- depending on the location of the mall. A conglomeration of occupations, thought, and/or practices; all under one roof. Malls assemble commonality of tastes, among a variety of goods, and services; and reflect acceptable norms of society. Right wrong or indifferent. Depending on the nature of a mood or message being relayed. In this dream Christendom in America was being reflected in all the ways it exists. The focus was upon the up and coming bible ministers, full of book training, embarking upon their ministry, flanked with arrogance and hostility towards the Holy Spirit. In a time where the wisdom of God is counted as foolishness to men, and the foolishness of men, is wisdom unto God. They are ever learning and never coming to the truth. Under the same roof of us all! A powerless gospel puts God’s people in peril when storms rise! With out the Spirit of God, and the Spirit of the fear of the Lord, bible study training is a sailboat with no wind, in a waterless sea.
Note: A specific mall known by the dreamer may very well just mean, that mall. For dream coaching click on the CONTACT US! Link for questions.
A few days ago I was pruning back the over growth of our grape vines. So many really good looking runs had to go. Reminding me of the careful, loving hands of God, that prunes us back for reasons of fruitfulness, and viability. To save our lives, and to ensure kingdom productivity. This means He does everything in His power to finish the good work that he has begun in us, as the author and finisher of our faith. From the faithful son to the prodigal. His goal is to bring us home, that we can abide with Him, in His House.
God the Father is the Lord of the harvest, and resides over this work of salvation being wrought in the earth. Him who desires that no man perish; but, that all will come into the knowledge of the son. At the time that I was pruning my grape vines, this article began to trend on my website. So I’m taking that as a sign it’s a word for the season. – God bless.
For The Sake Of Fruitfulness
Recently, the Lord gave me a picture. I saw a tree, it was in great shape. A nice full tree with viable limbs and thick with foliage.
As I was observing this tree all of a sudden a branch grew out from one of the limbs, and as it grew I began to notice that it was a dead branch. Now how can a dead branch grow?
Read: For The Sake Of Fruitfulness by clicking the link below, the article will answer the following questions, and more.
1.What is the destruction of the flesh?
2. What exactly are works of the flesh?
3. When does mercy end and judgment begins?
And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem: When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the middle thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. And the LORD will create on every dwelling place of mount Zion, and on her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night …
And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and from rain.
He that endures to the end, shall be saved.
According to the encyclopedia most modern ponies were once horses that developed a small stature because they lived on the margins of livable horse habitat. A pony will always be a pony but originally it was a horse. Now bred to be different breeds. A pony is a dwarfed horse because it lived in an environment that could not sustain it. So it adapted. A horse in dreams often represent power. In this dream I’m about to share, remember, it ends well for them who endure to the end. Who yields to their maker, that He can draw out from them, the power of their potential, in Christ.
There are religious strongholds in the land that dwarf the development of God’s people by quenching and resisting the Holy Spirit. Having a form of Godliness but denying the power there of. Clouds, the bible says, without rain. This condition creates a religious environment, that cannot sustain Christian growth and true maturity. Rather, it is producing the faint of heart, and unprepared disciples, that will have difficulty withstanding days of difficulty. Simply because their full potential has never had the opportunity to develop past getting saved, and on to abundant life training. Where our circumstances don’t dictate to us how we live our life in Christ, but our life in Christ demands circumstances to bow and serve Him. All should be filled and endued with power from on high. Acts 2, all should know their authority as believers. Quenching the Spirit in our meetings creates dependence, not disciples. Few anointings have the opportunity to rise up, and be trained in Spirit led training. God calls them out. Generations of a powerless gospel have produced a sub species of Christian that cannot break from its mind set, but for God! If a pastor wants to know the health of his congregation, and their strength and trust in God, all he has to do is count those medicated on pills, struggling with sin, and addictions; those living on government assistance, and the in firmed. If a congregation is sitting under the restraints of an institutionalize Christianity, there will be many in that state of living. I’m not trying to be harsh or judgmental here, but we have to look at the truth in regard to the condition of the Church. Who and what she is dependent on. Christ Church should not be medicated, broke, and dieing.
Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?
Only God can stretch a horse out of a pony. But they will have to leave the pony farm, to become their full potential. Ponies are desired for Children. They are not desired for battle. If we as pastors are raising up those that will endure to the end, that is commendable. Let us go further, and seek to train them to run with endurance, to the end; this great race set before us.
Zechariah 10:3 (AMP) My anger is kindled against the shepherds [who are not true shepherds], And I shall punish the male goats (leaders); For the LORD of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, And will make them like His majestic horse in battle.
I had a prophetic dream after a believer’s meeting in our home town. I feel that in it is a word for believers who live in areas of the Bible Belt. My phone rang sitting on the night table, (like it wasn’t a dream) and I picked it up and there was a loud beast of a voice on the other end screeching at me. I knew it was a rulership of darkness over the area, and we must have rattled its cage the night before. I knew this had something to do with our intercession for the city. I couldn’t make out any words, the call came from main street downtown. While the voice continued screeching, I knew I needed to keep talking, and speaking the word, and I could tell the teachers anointing was in it. The voice on the phone seemed to be the embodiment, of all the push back felt in this area since the Lord’s assignment 8 years ago. After quite a while the voice tamed down and became more and more human sounding, and I began to make out the words it was saying.
The short of it was that a demonic controller named RIFT, come out from the root of rebellion, was raging against our intercession, and ministry of the spoken word, over the phone! A prince and power of the air! The voice was very animated, and boastful. Very opinionated, and letter of the law, while acting as an illegal operative, against God’s people. Wise in its own eyes, while an ignorant form of bible knowledge poured out of RIFT’s mouth, and it was divisive. Rift’s human agents resist the Holy Spirit, spread legalism, and seed discord.
1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness as idolatry.
All I could think of was that the end game for those bound by this darkness was under developed christians, dwarfed in their potential by being made deaf, dumb, and blind. A spirit of rebellion that found a place to become a stronghold in a deeply divided land. A land with a church on every corner. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, or divination.
The night before we were praying, and repenting, and repenting for God’s people, even mentioning ancient divisions so intense that blood was spilled on the ground. Where there is division and strife there is every evil work. If strongholds of God are not lifting oppression off the land and establishing Christ, the Living Word, then darkness remembers its abode. The church cannot retreat with out devils seeking back their haunts. Seven times with seven more. If divisions plagued the land before, they will again, until that power is broken. Spirits move in because ground is lost, not taken. Jesus said OCCUPY until I come. Not regress. When evil spirits trespass it is time to remind the enemy of our inheritance, that we have one, and walk in it.
As I was on the phone I walked the five miles to town towards where the phone caller was calling from, decreeing the WORD the whole time. Until I came to a fuel station, and stood near a gas pump, and saw a gas tank-truck start to tip over. Right at a CONVENIENT store, where they sold fuel. Think about it. This voice of rebellion was still running its mouth. I cried out, run!
The fuel station exploded. It was like I went down to see a fire ignite right there where that Satanic stronghold called me from. It was there I snatched from the flames two living beings. Fire poured out to the ground like a river. I saved what I could so that it wouldn’t be destroyed by the fire, and escaped into a steel walled building. It had steel, riveted doors, and concrete. It was a fire proof shelter, and I headed up to the second floor. I saw a huge garbage disposal. It “contained” the fire as flames rolled in from outside. Burning trash only, and the place was like a furnace. The consuming fire from the fuel station, was transformed into a refining fire, as the fire proof structure brought controls to the inferno, burning trash only.
Jesus-Luke 12:49 Amp
“I have come to cast fire on the earth; and how I wish that it were already kindled!”
There were others there nearer to the furnace withstanding the flames. Even closer than I. They were operating equipment that kept the fire contained, burning trash only. They were intercessors, and Angels. I felt bad for the two animals I saved from the fire. A pony and bunny, because in some ways I brought them closer to the heat. Even though they were saved from the fire. The pony was very uncomfortable. The fire wasn’t effecting me, but the bunny passed out. The two are a picture of how important it is to make ourselves ready, so we can endure to the end. So we won’t be the faint of heart, but rather actively involved as end times intercessors. What good are we if we pass out having little courage, or like the pony, trying so hard to bear the heat, but barely able to even move? The intercessors, interceding in the furnace room, narrowed the burning down to refuse only.
We have only a short time left to contend for ground, that it become a habitat for growth. That God can pull the horse out of the pony, no longer stunted by a powerless religion.
“I [the Lord] have set you as an assayer [O Jeremiah] and as a tester [of the ore] of My people, That you may know and analyze their acts.” They are all the worst [kind] of [stiff-necked, godless] rebels, Going around spreading slander. They are [not gold and silver ore, but] bronze and iron; They are all corrupt.
The bellows blow fiercely,
The lead is consumed by the fire;
In vain they continue refining,
But the wicked are not separated and removed. They call them rejected silver [only dross, without value], Because the Lord has rejected them. ( They are burning dross only).
Because the seed fell on rocky, weedy, shallow ground.
The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’
We have to break out of what confines us, always seeking for more of God. Being so hungry and thirsty for the bread and water of life, that we break through the four walls of false religion. Pressing in to the upward call of God. Not allowing ourselves to become acclimated to a culture or environment that quenches the Holy Spirit ever again. This would restrict anyone’s spiritual growth. John, who water baptized, said Jesus will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire. Continue to:
Seek and you shall find, Knock and the DOOR shall be opened to you. Ask and you shall receive. – Mathew 7:7
Derek Prince, in this video, is preaching on playing church, and religious spirits, and a lying spirit manifests in the meeting. People! This was real then and it is even more real today, as we move towards the end of the age. I can absolutely testify that religious spirits manifest when light exposes their masquerade. Revealing the enemies lies. People wonder why they can sit just fine in their church, Sunday after Sunday, year after year; but then go to a Spirit filled meeting and end up foaming at the mouth on the floor, or running out the door! It is because religiosity doesn’t change us, nor does it grow us. It keeps us looking good, and will even promote us. While a masked charade continues its work in our lives. Until the Living Word is released in His power. No matter how Full Gospel a church can claim to be, if that church quenches the Spirit of God, then there will be bondage, that bondage keeps us as slaves. For where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty! We can talk power, preach power, and walk like we got power, but yielding to the Holy Spirit is the only thing that brings in the power!
12/28/2017 Formally titled: A City In Asia
Proverbs 22:3 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished.
Prophetic warning for a city somewhere in Asia.
In a dream I was a westerner in an Asian city. Let me describe this city to you. It was an area like an older downtown. Very active with a lot of people coming and going. There were a few Caucasian’s there, I could say from America
but I don’t know, nothing I saw gave me a clue from where they came. I’m thinking, perhaps, English is not a barrier. These were not, necessarily, tourists. I came out of my apartment down some narrow stairs to the street, it wasn’t a new building, but well kept-up with clean side walks. Things seemed close and compacted together. There was nothing that looked third world around me. But the street seemed to be teeming with market activity. Lots of food venders and restaurants. In this dream those that lived in (what looked like a down town) made it a habit to step outside and procure meals for the day.
The open market had all kinds of fresh food, and even pre-made noodles. The vender would pull up a measure and bag them for the recipient to go warm them up later at home for a meal. Also, I could just walk across the street and go into a café and eat there, instead. In fact, this was what I had just done before stopping at the market place. Also, it appeared to be a pedestrian dominated area. I noticed the outdoor market was in the sun. It seemed the street was not in deep shade of high rises, nor was it dank, or smoggy. I didn’t see signs of impoverishment. I found my self fourth in line to purchase something from a vender. I noticed I was wearing a bright orange t-shirt. I saw a few other westerners wearing these shirts. It was a shorts friendly day outside. I never wear orange and I never eat noodles. I don’t wear a watch and I am female. So, I’m not myself in this dream. I have never been any where in an Asian country. I did think I could be some where in Hong Kong, but I know better than to assume things like that because I have been mistaken before. I saw the mall massacre in Nairobi, Kenya just 24 hours before it occurred, September 21, 2013; but thought I was in Syria because of days spent praying for that region, but I was in Nairobi in the aftermath of a mall attack. When I saw the news photos of the building where it happened, I knew then it was Nairobi. I’m not going to do that again. Nevertheless, my mind may not have known the place but God knew and prayers went up, I’m sure less happened there than was planned because of the saints of God who pray for this world. I would have done better to describe the floor tiling in the mall, and the landscape out doors. I have to say if the Lord wanted me to know He would have told me, for He has.
Again, I’m being detailed to shed light on prophetic processes.
Anyway, the people native to this place were Asians and lighter skinned than say people of Cambodia or Thailand. As far as westerners and the people native to this area there were no other cultural differences in dress, mostly casual to business casual on this day. More like Saturday go to market casual … In the dream I received my goods from the market and turned to the building, where my apartment was, to take home, for dinner, later.
This is when I began to hear a narrative run through my mind as it were from the Father. He said, “What would you do if something happened and you would not be able to collect your meal from these each day?” The thought stunned me because I realized my dependency on the vendors and cafes’. That really I didn’t have any store to speak of, food or water, that would last more than just a day. I wondered at my recklessness in such a world we live in. I began to think of scenarios that would suddenly stop commerce, and felt the panic of such a thing. The scene changed and I was in a crisis. I didn’t see destruction. But the venders and shoppers were gone. The businesses were closed. The dream ended with my character, back before the crisis putting together an emergency kit and stocking his cupboards. Some items gathered were light for flight and non cumbersome.
When I woke up I knew the orange t-shirt meant a warning for foreigners in this place. Particularly, those clearly of the Caucasian race, I don’t know why other foreign races were not pointed out.
Orange in nature and in the civilized world is used to warn. Why they were wearing orange may be because being non native born, without family in the area, they would be more at risk. Being caucasian clearly pointed out one as foreign. Public opinion can turn quickly in politically tumultuous times. For example when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Japanese Americans were taken to concentration camps for national security purposes. I’m also thinking that the age group in the dream, if they were Americans, they have never had an interruption of basic food supplies in their life time. They may not understand the impact world events could have on them over night. That the vendors in that market, don’t necessarily, live in town; but, come there to sell and buy their goods- their risk could be less than those dependent on the downtown being supplied. For many, living downtown was a trendy pursuit to do so, by young native-born professionals, and westerners alike.
One other note was that I clearly saw a young Asian woman wearing a yellow light pull over sweater. I thought of the act of yielding, waiting … I thought for some, such crises would require preparation to wait it out. She walked wearing a blouse and sweater. This a casual sign of readiness in the event of atmospheric change. So, when the temperature changes for her she will have more flexibility to respond, as a born citizen of this region. I would say if this dream has any warning in it, that seemed to come out of the clear blue sky … An event in such a place would be very trying if not dangerous to not have a plan. Really, it should be a habit for everyone to consider a plan B, in order to survive, or at least not have to make choices, less desirable out of desperation. Which is another topic God’s been speaking to me about altogether, to remind His people what we trust Him for, and how much we rely upon Him, even when times are good, this is what will bring us stability and presence of mind when times and circumstances suddenly change. Wisdom is justified by her children. As Solomon said, look at the ant. I don’t know why I had this dream. But because what God has shown me over the last three decades with Somalia, Mozambique, Syria, Nairobi, and more recently the Congo Ebola out-break; I can only pray, warn, and document. *
Deana Barnes 12/29/2017 11:59 am.
*Again just a day or two after this dream, I had another: Two or Three young Caucasian men on a city street, thirsty and faint with hunger. It seemed like some kind of dust kick up, but the scene was not the same, now they are more away from the downtown area, and when I say downtown it could have been a trendy older city street near a more modern area. Where young Caucasian foreigners were now among a mixture of city and country people and there seems to be a bench. One of the young men is sitting on it exhausted. With just the clothes on his back, moving through a scene that seems desperate. I don’t know what this dream is all about but there is a wisdom in it.
When we are wise in our ways desperation cannot take us places we would rather not go. This young man was living vicariously. Moment to moment like many people do. Wouldn’t it be ridiculous to have to run to the streets in the middle of a crisis looking for water, when one could have stayed where they were at until things settled down; or, had a readiness pack to take with them? This is true with the condition of our souls, we can have assurance in Christ now, we can be in a place (spiritually) prepared for what ever comes. Even knowing what lies ahead and how to prepare. First and for most our souls need to be made ready for Christ’s return.
Beyond that, if God’s warnings are needed for spiritual preparation only, why was the Prophet Agabus used by the Spirit to warn of a famine during the time of the first Apostles? Why did Barnabas and Saul bring famine relief to the believers in Judea? Furthermore, if people think prophets are not suppose to speak of future events in this church era; but, only to edify, exhort, and comfort, then they need to study Acts 11:27, and Acts 28:27. As well as consider John’s book: The Revelation Of Jesus Christ. Or, take my view of it all and perhaps broaden their understanding of what edification, exhortation, and comfort, of the saints, all entails. In the world we live in today, I have seen tragedy in the lives of God’s people, because they viewed a prophet’s prophetic warning as a negative report, and would not receive it. I’ve seen God give a two year advance warning against cancer that was called an evil report, two years later the cancer was discovered too late. Had they just checked it out … On the other hand there was a family warned to begin canceling out an assignment against their daughter’s life. They began to pray over their adult child, and God miraculously spared their daughter’s life in a bicycle/ car accident just a week later. No lasting injuries. What the Church should do is go back to the pattern of a Jerusalem council to seek God for wisdom, and resolve, when visions, dreams, words and prophecies are released to the body, to get specific answers from God on how to move forward. Why not set up a prophetic prayer council among the body, to process all words given? The bible says let the prophets stand and judge! So let them. To confirm a word, seek on it, or receive of a move of God’s Spirit, or take actions to avoid adversity. But we don’t really do that much any more … We just stand back and watch to see if what was prophesied “comes to pass.”
Church, when are we going to activate our power and influence in the earth? It is time to rise and shine. Let’s become the people of Isaiah 60:1, 61:1, 62:1; in the Earth. Pastors stop paralyzing your people with fear of prophets, and prophecy, and begin teaching God’s sheep how to process the prophetic word. Most camp grounds and parks do not want people throwing together a pit fire for themselves, so they designate a safe place to contain one, with all the provision needed. They even provide the kindling to get one going! This is facilitating a fire and putting in safe guards so no one gets burned. But even though they know the Holy Spirit manifests as fire, some pastors never set up provision that will keep it going and make it last. Too many skiddish leaders just hope God won’t send a fire starter, so they have that fire extinguisher out and ready the minute some one gets too happy. If they continue in that mentality, one day … One day a fire will break out and they will have to be the mop up crew, after the fact. That is disorder because no one thought ahead. If we can’t manage revival fires on a singular scale how in the world will they be administrated on a city wide scale. Why, some pastors get a cold sweat when they hear some one break out in tongues. The least of all the gifts. Jesus said the Son of Man will return, but He asked a question, “Will He find faith in the earth when He comes? Will the Church be prepared to meet him? Will they be busy stewarding the returns on His great Life investment He poured out for all mankind? Or will they answer, “We were afraid? We not only buried our own talents but every one entrusted to us had to throw theirs in the hole too!” That is not His way. Wisdom is known by her children. If it gets messy it’s not yours to put it out, but it is yours to steward what could become a perpetual flame! He’s coming back to collect dividends on what has been entrusted, will the church of God be empty handed?
Back to the dream, God wants His people to be in a state of readiness. To be as wise as servants and harmless as doves.
“But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into.
** Whether this dream is a word of wisdom for all of us to keep in mind the times we are living in, or a specific warning regarding an event to come. It can be taken as a teaching scenario to be vigilant and sober, to watch and pray. To live in a state of spiritual readiness at all times. While I am not a prepper, my strongest advice would be that if our life style (aside from Jesus’s direct command, in Mathew 10:10, to go without purse, script, or sword) hurls us into the street, out of desperation, shortly after an event or crisis, then we cannot possibly be living our lives with intent according to the wisdom of God, specifically as it is written in the book of Proverbs.
Give not sleep to your eyes, nor slumber to your eyelids. Deliver yourself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler. Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provided her meat in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you sleep, O sluggard? when will you arise out of your [lack of awareness] sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall your poverty come on at once, [like a woman in travail], and your want as an armed man.
An Ancient Pilgrimage Genesis 24
Keep an account of Her. Her going out and coming in. Watch her as you watch for HIM, more. THE one chosen, the one HE loves. The called out for, to have and to Hold. Whom he ransomed for a GREAT price. See her, how she has made herself ready. The one, as the story is told, whom GOD spoke of. HIS servant met HER at the well. She drew for him of the deep waters. The ONE chosen by the Father. Whom was pre known; kin of His Kin.
The one LAUGHTER, He Has gone down now, at evening tide before they arrive.
She lifts up her eyes and sees HIM, there is a catch in her breath as the bride enquired of the servant (as she had already lit off the camel) “Who is this?” The servant replies, “This is my sovereign.”
The original Hebrew words of this story of Isaac and Rebekah paint a beautiful encounter. The sun is setting as Isaac walks out into the field to meditate. It is reasonable to believe this was something he did quite often. This time, He saw coming an entourage of camels, the servant, and his servant’s, servants. The bride, her nurse, and maidens. The Hebrew word for damsels suggest children of an unknown age from infancy to adolescence, the root meaning is not necessarily female, but rather child servants. Boys and Girls. Rebekah, the delightful young woman that she was, revealed her personality at the well where she met, and accommodated Abrahams servant, and his camels, with their fill of water. We can draw a safe conclusion that Rebekah was full of life, very engaging, hospitable, and played the big sister to the less fortunate of those around her. After all, the well was the place to be for a lovely girl like Rebekah. No doubt, her little brood of admirers were gathered in the entourage, to accompany Rebekah; to grow up as her servants in the household, and shadow of the renown dwelling among the nomadic, unmistakably identifiable, even from a distance, the place of refreshing, benevolence, and hospitality … The house, the mobile city known as SARAH’S Tent.
Sarah’s tent, renown and honored (as the original language of the scriptures describe) seemed to be more than just a dwelling among nomads. It is a picture of New Jerusalem. Sarah’s tent was a sight to be seen as soon as it came in view, gauged against the horizon.
The original Hebrew wording gives us this picture of their first encounter. Rebekah sees Isaac and the scriptures says she lited off the camel, truer to the original language, she actually dismounted the camel so enthralled and focused upon Isaac that she sort of fell into her dismount, and then regained her composure, while learning from the servant (who is a type and shadow of the Holy Ghost) that the man Rebekah sees standing in the field to greet them is her beloved. She then veiled herself in order to be identified as the one whom Father Abraham had sent for. Of all who stood before him, the veil signified his bride as the ONE among them who was free born. Another picture in type and shadow, that Rebekah was there of her own freewill, as all are, in Christ.
The account of Rebekah’s response reveals a sense of dignity and pedigree, after the servant confirmed what her heart already knew, she immediately pulls together her covering garments for modesty, after her unassisted dismount; at the same time, the Hebrew words describe she covered the hollows of her form, and stood up to present herself as any lady would, modestly, yet purposely, plumping the folds of the garment to give hint of her femininity; as, one commentary suggested. It is also mentioned in another commentary that she prostrated herself before Isaac as Abigail did David; however, the brief passage leaves that open for discussion. It is a gesture beyond what is required but who would deny her that response? The next scene (we are told) is when Isaac takes Rebekah into his mother’s tent and was then comforted from Sarah’s death.
Sarah’s name broken down in pictograms of the ancient Hebrew alphabet contains a “hidden” name or description of Sarah’s life; it reads like this: “The one who saw two great destructions.” This enables us to look at Sarah whose name directly means princess, as a type and shadow of that Kingdom abode, from where the scripture says “Only with thine eyes shall you see the reward of the wicked.” From a distance only, did Sarah see the smoke of Sodom and Gomorra, as it will be for those who rest in that heavenly ECONOMY of hospitality, and benevolence; wrapped in the arms of a greater promise that of Abraham. This world’s two great destructions- one by water, and the other by fire, will become a distant memory as the old order of things pass away, and all things become new. Sarah’s passing takes with her the memory of the sorrows of this world.
This ending the picture of Christ meeting His Church, the Sojourning Bride, safely handed over to Him, by the guide of all guides; even, the precious Holy Spirit that completed His work. The lovely lady, was kept in His unbroken custody to present before the Kings of Kings, and Lord of Lords; His bride, by Her own free will. Her and her entourage, forever. Her personal servant with her, a nurse named Deborah, accompanied her in her journey. The Hebrew name Deborah is translated bee which also, means word. So there you have it, a perfect picture of the bride of Christ brought to Him, safely, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, with the assistance of the WORD OF LIFE.
Beloved, are we not in that procession this day? Bearing gifts of His own? Onyx stones, and bracelets, little bells upon the priestly hems, and ankles … surely, she has anointed herself with HIS oils and perfume. This journey is a progressive procession of joy, of righteousness, and truth, in the Holy Ghost. This is the BRIDE who made herself ready, who meets Him at the well. Escorted daily in His accommodations, held in His sacred trust, with the WORD OF LIFE in attendance.
Song of Solomon 6:9-10
My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, the only one of her mother, pure to her who bore her. The young women saw her and called her blessed; the queens and concubines also, and they praised her. Who is this who looks down like the dawn, beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun, awesome as an army with banners?”
Song of Songs
“Listen! I hear my love! Look! Here he comes! He’s leaping across the mountains. He’s coming over the hills.
The one who loves me is like an antelope or a young deer. Look! There he stands behind our wall. He’s gazing through the window. He’s peering through the screen. He said to me, ‘Rise up, my love. Come with me, my beautiful one. Look! The winter is past. The rains are over and gone.
Flowers are appearing on the earth. The season for singing has come.
The cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig trees are producing their early fruit.
The flowers on the vines are giving off their sweet smell.
Rise up and come, my love. Come with me, my beautiful one.’”
..And the SPIRIT and the BRIDE call out, come now! Even come Lord Jesus!
Beloved! Come Along! – deana barnes
The Ahab Jezebel modus operandi is a corporate malfeasance, that empowers works of the flesh with satanic influence under the guise of noble causes.
But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil work.
It is an operative that has reproduced itself countless times over, since King Ahab and Jezebel’s reign, recorded in the Bible, animated it in the earth. They together, as one flesh, committed crimes against their people and God; giving time, life, and resources, to their worthless idols. The Satanic power behind the scenes of this modus operandi have resisted the test of the ages, and the fade of time. It has manifested itself in political offices and church sanctuaries; to fulfill one purpose, and that is to secure resources for its demonic rule, to continue Satan’s rebellion against almighty God.
Webster’s on line: definition of modus operandi : the usual way of doing something; especially: the usual way that a particular criminal performs a crime.
You have built your bell towers at the head of every street, you have made your beauty an abomination, and have opened your feet to everyone who passed by, and multiplied your prostitution.
1 Kings 21:25 There was no one like Ahab who SOLD HIMSELF to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord, more so, Jezebel stirred him up.
Ahab Jezebel Modus Operandi
Of all the books, sermons, video tapes, and cd’s ever made about the Ahab Jezebel operative, very few have made an accurate and scriptural identification of the players behind what they call “a Jezebel spirit” in our world today. While spiritual wickednesses in high places have perfected themselves in their rules of engagement, many of those engagements are similar to what we see in the old testament, that can be used as a play book in identifying works of the enemy, against God’s people and their inheritance in Christ. In Jehovah’s kingdom the greater serves the lesser. In Ahab’s Kingdom the resources, and talents of the saints are there to serve the idol of selfish ambition. They are religious works that employ the resources of the Body of Christ, falling short of what should be the righteous acts of the saints.
What’s taught in regard to the Ahab Jezebel dynamic is that these two individuals are spirits. They are not. They are a demonized mode of operation, net working under satanic strongholds, to plunder the treasures of God’s Kingdom, tapping resources of the saints. As was done with Naboth’s vineyard.
The spirits involved are lying, seducing, perverse, spirits that have found a foothold in a work of the flesh called selfish ambition. Many pastors, heads of ministry, and other types of church authority, have engaged the saints in sins of idolatry, serving a man’s vision above God’s mandate. The greatest sign in identifying a church under the control of the Ahab Jezebel modus operandi is an absence of the prophet’s mantle of Elijah, among them. Which is a fore runner anointing clearing paths for Christ’s greater works that benefit generations to come.
This is contrary to Ahab’s works who lined his household up (and himself) for destruction. Prophetic ministry that doesn’t serve the Ahab Jezebel agenda is issued a death certificate of neglect at best, and is driven out of the assembly altogether at worst, by an active demonic network which is the Jezebel component in the Ahabic regime. Distinct and methodical teaching to dissuade the office of the prophet’s influence is dispatched, while rewarding “yes men” is actively engaged. The Ahabic regime has a name for God’s true prophet. That name is “Troubler”.
1 Kings 18:17-18
When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Is it you, you troubler of Israel?” And he answered, “I have not troubled Israel, but you have, and your father’s house, because you have abandoned the commandments of the Lord …
A tell tell sermon on prophets, come out of this dynamic, is always slanted to the negative. Never would that demonic hierarchy give them honor, or teach the people how to receive the office. Of course why would a rebellious leadership want the people to know how to receive a prophet? In their world it is kept hidden in the obscurity of ignorance, because of its corrective value, and reward to those who receive a prophet’s ministry. Mathew 10:41. A prophet’s ministry proceeds advancement in the Kingdom of God.
It is a wicked work that undermines the impact of the office of the prophet, set in the Church by God, and their ministry to the Body of Christ. Those houses void of their prophets may have dishonored them, and could very well have the dynamo duo working in their midst; seeing to it that only their compliant appointees exist. In fact, any anointing determined to obey God rather than man will be marked as a troubler under the jurisdiction of an Ahabic ambition.
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ ..
The Elijah anointing turns the hearts of the fathers towards the children and the hearts of the children towards their fathers. In this end times work before us- the mantle of the prophets make clear the paths of the Lord. As John came in the Spirit of Elijah, so once again is this mantle in the earth upon the Church, spoken of in Malachi. Preparing the way for Messiah’s second coming! Ahab had 70 sons that met a violent end; Ahab’s regard for his sons and daughters, did not secure their future, for his heart was not toward them. An Ahab Jezebel modus operandi works against the end times ministry of Elijah. Jezebel’s demonized sanctuary will not tolerate the Elijah mandate in their midst today. In Revelation Jesus warned another Jezebel type that He would kill her children with death. Is this not the curse written in Malachi? Let’s look.
Malachi Chapter 4:1-5
For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Rev. 2: 23 [Jezebel] And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts: and I will give to every one of you according to your works.
Ahab and Jezebel’s story is about two people who had a platform of power that they misused, while they gave free reign to their own sinful lust. Ahab’s sin was disobedience while sitting as King in a God ordained appointment. The same idolatry, and lust for power, he exhibited emerges from the hearts of men and women, who have given themselves over to their appetites, just like Ahab did. Sadly, the Church today is inundated with those who seek fame, fortune, and power. Deceiving and being deceived; believing there religious acts are righteous works. Yet, have nothing to show for the equipping of the saints.
Their congregants are subjects of an Ahab Jezebel net work, not an equipped army capable of going to war, at any given moment. They have been rendered weak, sickly, timid, and dependent; forfeiting their own inheritance for the sake of another man’s selfish ambition. Often, the saints under such a leadership find themselves submitting to undue controls, and unrecognized sacrifices.
Jezebel was named after, and born to serve Baal. Her father was a Baal worshiper. She was empowered by a spiritual hierarchy that stirred up Ahab to sin greatly against His God, while Ahab was leading in Jehovah’s Kingdom. Ahab sealed his fate by marrying Jezebel. Ahab was not a man after God’s own heart. He was a man after his own pursuits, empowered by the anointing (come from God) that put him there.
The scripture clearly points out to us that an anointing is not the mark of obedience.
Case in point King Saul, King Ahab, as well as King David, in certain events of his life. Anointed leadership can come into an agreement with a satanic alliance, as Ahab did with the enemies of God on earth, that enabled a principality in high places, and its rulerships of darkness, to be a strong hold in the land for Baal worship. This activated Jezebel to persecute Elijah And kill prophets. Jezebel and Ahab became one in works of the flesh. Both of them were deceived, by choice, and under the control of a satanic delusion, seduced by demonic powers, and spirits of perversity; committing whoredoms against God, in the Kingdom of the inheritance of the saints.
It is impossible to have a Jezebel operative in the church with out an Ahab in charge giving it place, or tolerating it. Often the two dynamics can operate in one man or woman who hold the reins in leadership. Remember, as husband and wife Ahab and Jezebel were one in flesh. This working is a work of the flesh so it is perfectly scriptural, that a man or woman leading, can have both operatives operating. The Ahab that wants, and the Jezebel that will wickedly manipulate in order to provide. Don’t imagine I am identifying husband and wives in ministry gone a stray, as an Ahab Jezebel team. But that could be a scenario. A husband or wife may or may not be complicit, as stated before the dynamic duo operative can work through one person, office, church or a denomination, for that matter, an entire political party. Like the nation of Israel itself was under the rule of Ahab and Jezebel.
This satanic hierarchy working the Ahab Jezebel modus operandi, has no legal authorization to act with out given power to do so! This power is secured when God’s appointed man or woman succumb to temptations, leading them to sin against God in disobedience, allowing positions of authority, and their lust for power, to corrupt them. Rather than serving God they start to use resources belonging to HIM for their own selfish pursuits, as religious as they seem. The body of Christ under their influence begins to suffer a subtle diversion of purpose believing their personal sacrifices and offerings are serving God! Rather, they are serving a regime influenced by evil spirits (Jezebelic network). The Ahab Jezebel dynamic is an operative under the category of whoredoms against God. These are works of the flesh as described in Galatians 5:19 and covers everything from selfish ambitions to idolatry, witchcraft, and adultery.
Simply, their position, and appointment, that has a platform and power; becomes their altar, and instruments, to practice idolatry.
Under the power of a spiritual wickedness in high places- lying spirits, perverse and seducing spirits, find a foot hold in established controls, and governments in the earth. This includes Christian organizations, and churches, in order to funnel resources out of the hands of good people, into the service and sacrifice of idols. For the church of America that would translate to serving the god of self. In her political arena it has been the same.
One might think that such a work would be extraordinarily evident. Rather, it is profoundly ordinary and common among many of our Churches today.
The Old Testament gives us a prophetic parallel to how this work of darkness enters into our lives and sanctuaries. The Story of Ahab and Jezebel reveals to us how disobedience and a self involved leadership, becomes a floodgate for a demonic hierarchy, to enter into a position ordained by God.
Too many have attempted to teach about the inner workings of this dynamic duo, while under their spell, getting it all wrong; leaving the true portion of accountability, out of the hands of leadership, and into a chaotic, fear mongering witch hunt, going every direction imaginable, away from the true source of responsibility. With out an Ahab there would be no Jezebel.
Ahab served the god of self and Jezebel helped him do it, zealously. Deeper than that they emboldened wickedness to reside over Israel in their whoredoms against God, using resources of their own subjects.
One might imagine that such an operation would be an out-of-reach, off-the-beaten-path religious group, under the control of a moody dark character. This is not true, the flesh woman Jezebel was gifted in the art of cosmetics and sorcery, to seduce. 2 Kings 9. How much more charismatic would the darkness that empowered her pretend to be, that is still in operation today, having centuries to perfect itself in manipulating human nature?
Churches under the control of this mode of operation, are often main stream, or influential in their community, for that very reason. The art of make up. Jesus had a very strong word of warning for those who tolerated Jezebel.
Ending Ahab’s Reign Begins With Repentance
Remember, one must have the beam of blindness removed from their eye before they can see to remove specks out of the eyes of others! To many good people have been left bloodied with facial scars (harming good reputations) because a slave of the Ahab Jezebel modus operandi, was attempting to correct in others, what needed corrected in themselves.
The evidence that the Ahabic Jezebel operation resides over any given territory, is that the office of the prophets of God is operating in seclusion in the area. The cave prophets! The 7 thousand that have not bowed their knee to Baal happens just before the double portion anointing is released in the area, where Ahab is dethroned, and Jezebel is cast down. So be encouraged, God won this battle, many times before, and He will win it all over again. There is no new thing under the sun!
We just need to know what in the world is going on, so we can resist the devil, and recognize that Jezebel’s spiritual play ground is in the realm of an Ahabic sanctuary.
It begins with leadership.
This spiritual wickedness, seducing a disobedient, jealous, competitive, and covetous people does not care if it is seated at the head of the table. As long as it is bedded down with the one who will give it free reign to keep out the holy prophets of God. They just need to be in the same boat of like mindedness. For they both love self, as Ahab and Jezebel did. Ahab (in this prophetic parallel) represents a natural God given position sold out to the service and worship of an idol called selfish ambition, aided and abetted by a satanic hierarchy that will stir him up to create even more abominations, in the pursuit of his “me” agenda. This is accomplished through Jezebel. A network of demonic players contributing to a wicked work committing whoredoms against God, in high places. Using the power of manipulation, and control.
While Ahab is a flesh and bone operative over one or many, the Jezebel counter part doesn’t have to be. For this work is the satanic side of this duo blinded by thier own deception, the spiritual side, the shadow government, if you will. Seducing, manipulating, and stirring up Ahab who did great wickedness against God, as described.
Ahab hated correction by prophets that told him the truth, and though he feared God in that regard, Ahab would not take authority among the people he was assigned to lead, to protect and accommodate the prophets of God. Rather, Ahab handed them over to Jezebel, raising up her own councilmen and prophets. While this demonic work murdered and persecuted true prophets in the land. In our churches today you can say the presbytery of an Ahab Jezebel operative are those who tolerate Jezebel, and allow her prophecies and teachings to secure an agenda that is in disobedience to God. For it is not for His glory they serve, but for the glory of their god; self. Though the workings of the Jezebel counter part of an Ahabic leadership is invisible and demonic, that network of various spirits dominate the compliant and oppress the non compliant. Male or female.
This is why many meeting places of the saints become known as the house of revolving doors.
This wickedness punishes men and women under the authority of an Ahab, that refuse to yield their spiritual inheritances, or giftings, to his vision or cause; and activates the satanic network of a Jezebel operative into action, oppressing those who have gifts and anointings. This type of activity is portrayed in 1 Kings 22:4 when Ahab wanted Naboth’s vineyard to turn it into a vegetable garden. Meaning years of husbandry was ignored that made Naboth’s vineyard a productive producer of new wine, for Ahab to have a vegetable garden. This is a picture of the misuse and abuse of gifts and callings of God, where good men and women with great spiritual wealth, and worth, suffer spiritual violence over their inheritance in Christ, where a flood gate of interest and recruitment is formulated towards a gifted or resourceful saint, in order to procure their talent, time, and resource.
Gal 4:16 Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? Those people are zealous to win you over, but for no good. What they want is to alienate you from us, so that you may have zeal for them …
Because these gifted saints of God are in close proximity to the duo’s dynamic, their field of ministry is desired, as was Naboth’s, for works born of the flesh, but not after the Spirit. In order to incorporate it into a plan drawn up of a flesh conjured vision. It was the coverage close to where Ahab resided that made Naboth a target. The name Naboth means sprout to fruit, productivity, fruitful. Other commentaries say to sprout forth an utterance, a word or prophecy. How poetic is that?! A gift of prophecy or teachers anointing in the jurisdiction of the (networking) of these two bad actors, are coveted for not what they are to produce for Christ, but for reassignment, that will draw resources to their operation of an idol worshiping regime, of self exaltation and advancement. As was Naboth’s vineyard tragically used for.
This is why these gifts and anointings find themselves quenched, or rewarded for doing everything else but the very thing God has given them to do.
So, in order to have Naboth’s vineyard Jezebel hatched a vile and demonically induced scheme. Remember, this operative that empowered Jezebel is an invisible force of seduction, and perversion, that uses legal authority to accomplish its illegal operation, to this day. Ahab’s roll is the self absorbed bishop, pastor, head minister, or head of state; that facilitates it. Look what it did to secure Naboth’s inheritance:
Elders, nobles, and respected leaders, under the influence of the Ahab Jezebel operative, are stirred up against a devout man, and his sacred inheritance. All of them join to accuse Naboth and remove him from his place in the land of Israel. Look at how this man whose name means FRUIT or to produce – had his field of ministry stolen from him! Jesus said, “That you might bring forth fruit and that fruit remain …”
1Kings 21:7-10 Then Jezebel his wife said to him, “You now exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.” And she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth. She wrote in the letters, saying. Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, “You have blasphemed God and the king.” Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die.
The theft of destiny often begins with a promotion or flattery in these politically charged gathering places we call church in America. What is thought as acceptance turns into a set up.
By all means they will do or say what they can, in order not to lose assets. It ends with a ruined reputation, when Naboth types resist serving man’s agenda. The accusations begin! Notice how this net work of demonic activity stirs up others to war against the saints and the prophets of God? The seducing spirits working the Jezebel operation, flatters, and offers positions of power, as well as accuses and destroys ministries around it, that do not cooperate with an Ahabic agenda. With the prophets of God, held at bay, this wickedness serves a disobedient, compromising leadership, that is more interested in expanding its own ministry, than it is to be a source of strength for the gifts and inheritances of the saints, in its territory.
Rather, after destroying Naboth, beginning with his reputation and Godly standing, his field of ministry was confiscated for the use of the Ahab Jezebel operation.
I’m sure fresh wine for the courts would have been part of that package before the vegetable garden would be plowed. For a court teeming with what seems to be ecstatic activity; but that activity comes at the expense of the gifts, offerings, inheritances, and souls of men, serving an ordained position of God, gone horribly wrong. Anyone willingly tithing or giving their offerings to this kind of operation, including time and life, are serving a regime that seeks to repurpose Godly assignments of men and women called to ministry, ruining reputations, that will not serve them, that are in their area. While there are lesser degrees of satanic activity suffered by the saints, this is that in its fullness.
They desire to promote and market only themselves. No one else exists in the world of this dynamic duo. Self serving flesh, stirred up by spiritual darkness.
The Christian franchise given over to the Ahab Jezebel M.O. is sinning against God, the actors involved are working in a tried and proven relationship to commit their whoredoms. Ahab, an ordained leader appointed by God, has turned to other god’s and married himself to a servant of Baal. This marriage can be with any thing or anyone that will accommodate his own agenda. King Ahab was a King that went to war but would rather indulge himself with the company of anyone. He was non confrontational towards the enemy, persuasive and accommodating to his peers, yet he was brazenly disobedient to God and rude to those attempting to correct him. Ahab preferred social engagement rather than conflict. He liked good news and snubbed bad news bearers, he also punished them. Even when they were sent to tell him the truth for his own good.
He was not a weak man but his disobedience made him weak, and susceptible to judgment.
He seemed to not be use to the word no, and allowed his counter part to carry out punishments on his behalf. This appears like a sign of weakness, yet in battle, after taking an arrow, he propped himself up in his chariot and faced war through out the day. So he does not go down easy at all. He was in a position God ordained, worthy of honor. He is the prototype of men and women today, called of God to serve. Who instead serve self, rather than Jehovah. In todays world it is a narcissistic agenda. It plagues the western church, and is spreading like a cancer to their disciples.
King Ahab’s greatest idol was himself. 1 Kings 21:25 There was no one like Ahab who SOLD HIMSELF to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord, more so, Jezebel (whom he was married to) STIRRED HIM UP. Chapter 26.
He behaved abominably in following idols. An idol is anything you set up above God. A man’s opinion can be an idol. His or her ministry can be an idol. Ambitions of grandeur can be an idol. Stubbornness is as the sin of idolatry. Heaping burdens on men and women around them that God would not have them carry, because of the traditions, and opinions of men, is a form of idolatry. This is prominent in many churches today, who serve their own personal ambitions rather than the flock of God. They are everywhere where one personality perpetually rides upon the backs of the saints of God, rather than being a part of that body, that carries the commission of Christ, to the nations.
They are first, their talent is first, their vision is first; all will serve the life, and accomplishments of this one who must always be first, with what they can bring to the table. If you tithe into them you are in, if you serve their agenda you are their prophets and servants.
Ahab married an idol worshipper. Men and women of God, starting out innocently answering His call, can be seduced to commit acts of disobedience, out of their own lustful and covetous desires, to the point they have entered into covenants, with demons of perversity engaging in spiritual adultery. This is getting in bed with whoredoms against God. Releasing the Jezebel modus operandi to begin working in their ministry. They will begin to experience a measure of success and expansion. But, eventually trouble comes. Not before their realm of influence is inhabited with soothsaying ministry, and a mechanism of restraint is established against the anointings of God, that would expose the invisible workings of the Jezebel modus operandi.
A satanic seductive, network of perverse spirits, seeking to over throw the saints of God.
There is no such thing as a Jezebel Spirit in scripture, per se, but the Ahab Jezebel dynamic is administered as a proven operative to take down works sanctioned by God, and turn them into a platform serving wickednesses in high places, in order to commit whoredoms against Jehovah. Some refer to Jeremiah’s mention of the Queen of heaven. The queen of Heaven is referring to Anath or Anat a Semitic goddess as commentaries for Jeremiah 44 suggest, but they are all tied in together and belong to the same rebellion from the beginning of time. When Lucifer attempted to exalt himself above God, the Most High, and a third of the angels fell with him.
Men and women in the earth found themselves fallen, as well, through the disobedience of their first parents Adam and Eve, becoming corrupted by their engagements with God’s arch enemy Lucifer, and the fallen angels.
All idol worship falls under the hierarchical workings of spiritual wickednesses in high places, that cause men and women to sin in committing adultery against God. In other words the names of the players can all be different but they are all tied into a satanic, global agenda, to serve rebellion against the Kingdom of God. There are works born of the Spirit, selfless acts of the saints. There are works born of the flesh, these are selfish acts to promote agenda’s under the covering of Christian ministry. Where Christ is named but not obeyed. Where he is said to be worshiped but not truly followed. Yet devout people lend their resources, because they think it is a noble Christ like work.
In the book of Revelation of Jesus Christ, there was a prophet and teacher, who was possessed with the same kind of seducing and perverse spirits, to get people to join her, in the bed of whoredoms she was lying in.
Her name wasn’t necessarily Jezebel as some commentaries suggest may be the case. But she was like Jezebel of old! Revelation 2:20 tells us that she teaches and prophesies. Jesus called her that woman Jezebel! Leading God’s servants into sexual immorality; PARTAKING of offerings sacrificed to idols. This is both spiritual and natural adultery, fornication, and participation in false doctrine; that include stubborn opinions of men, utilizing the sacrifices of others to work in their ministries. There is the Mother of Harlots mentioned in Revelation and these workings described here are hard lined into that satanic operation, that will one day meet an appointed demise.
Meanwhile, we that resist the devil should draw close to God and avoid the seductive lures of this dynamic duo.
If an Ahabic oppressed leadership attempts to preach on Jezebel, they will often teach and prophesy under the power of darkness that is engaging them in her modes of operation. That is the Ahab component deflecting blame from himself who needs to repent and divorce his or her sin of idolatry. Renouncing selfish ambitions. The key to discerning false teachings regarding Jezebel is noting the absence of the Ahabic profile responsible for her. Unrepentant leadership shifts the blame away from themselves, this is another modus operandi of Jezebel, deflection and witch hunts. Often targeting prophets of God. As long as Ahabic leadership continues un corrected and unrepentant, Jezebelic agendas don’t have to budge. Does it seem all so twisted? It in fact is!
Let me remind you of the workings of Leviathan, the KING of all the sons of pride! The twisting serpent! They serve one agenda. Rebellion against God.
Jesus said, He was against the Church that TOLERATES Jezebel! The CHURCH, the ANGEL of the CHURCH OF THYATIRA, was warned about this Jezebel of Revelation. Even though that church’s attributes were love, service, and patience, including the development in good works, Jesus warned the Church not to tolerate her. Those who will not get out of bed with spiritual and natural adulterers, and fornicators, or those that tolerate them, will suffer great tribulation. Jesus said the fruit (or that which springs forth from this modus operandi) will die. While the acts described in this passage seem overt, many times they are not. For example, putting a man or woman on a pedestal is idolatry. This is sin. A man or woman minister who perpetuates this practice, who feeds into it, or tolerates it, is a party to the sin of idolatry.
Fellowships and individuals plagued with sexual sin, in the leadership and among layman, who are committing the sin of adultery; both natural, spiritual, and emotional; against spouse and God, are yielding to seducing spirits that work under whoredoms.
Churches often inundated with illnesses, along with an unusual percentage of medicated members, under the influence of legal pharmaceuticals, are showing signs of the Judgements of a Jezebel Ahab modes operandi, falling under the control of seducing spirits and sorcery. These all come under the sin of whoredoms. Spirit of death, and premature deaths, both natural and spiritual, plague churches that tolerate harlotries against God, where warnings have been ignored. Not discerning the body of Christ, and his selfless sacrifice of the cross.
Idolatry robs people of their purpose, and their destiny. God dealt with Ahab, and the Church of THYATIRA against this satanic modus operandi of seducing God’s creation to serve and worship idols.
Many churches in America have been busy about works born of the flesh, rather than that which is born of the Spirit of God, many resources plundered by Satan, belonging to the saints. Man has been exalted, many times over as personalities have been worshipped, and firmly set on the throne, rather than God in this humanistic society, in the world we live in today. Our church programs disengage us from the mind of Christ, putting us on auto pilot for every season we pass through. Repetitive prayers, hymns, and bible lessons, dutifully offered, but mindlessly engaged.
The Spirit broods over us to impart refreshings and renewal but so few break away from form, to embrace Him.
Revelation 2:18-25 To the angel of the church in Thyatira write:
These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first. Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds. Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets, ‘I will not impose any other burden on you, except to hold on to what you have until I come.
In the story of King Ahab, he repented for a season. Churches can repent, influential men, and women of God, can resist seducing, perverse spirits, and denounce their idolatry.
This thing can be cleansed out. Jehu, in 2 Kings 9:33 (who plays a type of Jesus, in this passage) called upon Jezebel’s Eunuch’s (a representation of non male or female servants) to cast her down. In other words, Jezebel workers, that carry out the day to day objectives of this modus operandi are not necessarily specifically male or female. No females in the story of Ahab and Jezebel other than Jezebel and her alleged* daughter Athaliah, worked wickedness like her servants, subjects, and prophets, who were all male, or castorated males. The point is they were all male. So in the operatives of a Jezebelic influence, it is more about emasculating Godly authority from its power, so that the Jezebel net work is made comfortable, as Jezebel’s castorated servants made her life easy.
This is more than just a female manipulation over male counterparts. It is a genderless entity manipulating a soulish working.
It is a well oiled machine capturing the souls of men and women called to authority in God’s Kingdom, where the complete surrender of all reproductive capability of ones life and purpose is sacrificed to serve rebellion. These servants created by God to produce fruit in their lives, lose their productivity serving the Jezebel operative. Because this is how the enemy wants to drag the Church into serving idols. Committing whoredoms against God. Male or female leadership must stay sober, do not be deceived don’t become like Ahab, loving self more than God. Do not give seducing spirits place! The Jezebel M.O., uses both male and females as its servant.
We overcome the Jezebel modus operandi by resisting seductions, and casting them down! Resist the devil and he will flee from you! Draw nigh unto God He will draw close to you!
Jezebel is dead and in hell. The demonic hierarchy and net working that used her during King Ahab’s reign is still working today, flesh is not what we war with, the judgments of these evil spirits has its appointed day. Our duty is to resist the devil! Stop working works of the flesh. Quit building kingdoms of men and start building the Kingdom of God. Let that dying thing die, that is dead; and stop throwing the lives and sacrifices of the saints into it! Jehu, shows us how to overcome the lure of a Jezebel operative. Resist the devil, draw close to God, and he will draw close to you! It’s not that hard to recognize. Any place you go called a church, that has a platform, under a spot light, that one man or woman resides under, time and time again, is a meeting place for the Ahab Jezebel compliant. Those that sit in the shadows of this regime, serving their time, life, and resources, are tolerating Jezebel who is flourishing under the Ahabic regime. Revelation 2:20 says, “You tolerate her!” Jehu in 2 Kings 9:33 said to her emasculated servants “Cast her down!”
Resist temptation and cast down all thoughts that exalt themselves above the knowledge and wisdom of God! Throw down works of the flesh. Which is as the sin of witchcraft. End it!
The Raw Truth
1. Jezebel influence rounds up a posse from the pulpit against the prophets of God.
2. Jezebel influence incites people in power against the Elijah anointing.
3.Jezebel enablers are positions of authority that yield to emasculation of power.
4 Jezebel servants are not quiet or soft spoken men, who avoid the microphone.
5.Jezebel servants are not female personalities or women in leadership.
6. Jezebel servants castorate servants for Jezebel. Or, strip them of power.
7. Jezebel operatives don’t take control it is given to them.
8. Jezebel makes a mockery of self serving, fearful, and controlling, shepherds.
9. Jezebel hates obedient, anointed, men and women of God, who are strong in Him.
The worker of whoredoms against God, procures power to destroy the counsel and wisdom of God, that would identify the Ahab Jezebel dynamic. This is a confusing conundrum for those seeking discernment.
Remember in this equation Jezebel is an invisible force. We war not against flesh and blood. An assembly of saints or a ministry controlled by an Ahab Jezebel dynamic begins to serve a satanic agenda which is simply a work of the flesh. Works of the flesh and witch craft are all in the same suit. They serve men not God, agenda’s not destinies, and the Kingdom of Self not Heaven. They are as similar to the real thing as you ever want to get. The offspring ministries of a church or denomination given over to Jezebelic control, will die, as dead works burn. Jezebel’s reign of terror begins with a work sanctioned by God as was King Ahab’s reign. Ahab’s disobedience and alliances, with the enemies of God, brought trouble to His reign.
Wrap up summery.
Ahab was an enabler and a compromiser, he allowed Jezebel to replace the prophets of God with soothsayers. Churches, who have spirits working the Jezebel operation, have no real presbytery, (active older saints) no true fivefold ministry, or prophets among them. They begin to filter out strong male leadership, and over time become full to the brim, with a congregation that has a passive effeminate nature, supporting the dynamic duo’s lust for power, growth, and expansion. A passive congregation will often find itself under the control of an overbearing pastor. Both of the Ahabic Jezebelic operations could be working in one man or woman in charge. Surrounded by emasculated authority that serves their rebellion.
As Christ was tempted in the wilderness, so this same modus operandi of whoredoms (embodied by the flesh woman Jezebel) sought to seduce the very anointing that replaced her husband.
Because anointed Jehu confronted her servants, Jezebel’s power came to an end. Her final place in history was lower than that of the dogs. This spiritual darkness does not like to give up its high position and manifests great arrogance before it leaves, with a final attempt to shamefully seduce the one who is appointed to call for its banishment. That is why the last scene before Jezebel’s demise is a perfect picture of the behavior of this spiritual darkness called seduction, that throws everything it has into its last battle before defeat. The nature of a seducing spirit reveals itself openly in defeat.
The actual flesh woman Jezebel, went down in full costume to a dinner for the dogs. Fully attired in wardrobe headdress, fully made up in her cosmetics, fully engaged in her sorceries.
Ahab and Jezebel never “dirtied” their hands, they let eunuchs, soothsayers, and nobles of their net work do that for them. Jehu never dirtied his hands with Jezebel. The Eunuchs took care of that. Those servants of Jezebel men made as “not male or female” shows us several types of human manifestations of a servant or slave of Jezebel operations, that simply need to be cast down, beginning in the mind, as an act of choice, to begin their freedom from perversions. It goes like this: The flesh woman named Jezebel had eunuchs that kept her comfortable, and met her needs. The human servants of this network of unclean spirits serving the Jezebel modus operandi can either be male or female, they can be spiritually emasculated men, or dominating females, they can like wise display effeminate characteristics in males or, manly characteristics in females. However, the most dangerous servant of the Ahab Jezebel operative, and the most common, is one that looks and acts no different than any one else male or female. But has been altered in their purpose.
These servants whom ever they are must renounce their whoredoms against God by throwing down Jezebel which is a battle against their mind in an act of obedience to Christ.
In leadership today, a man or woman committed to Godly leadership abide in Christ and serve the Kingdom of God! For those whom have set themselves above God in acts of disobedience and selfish ambition, this means to repent, and renounce works of the flesh, and turning back to a life of obedience. Casting down every high thought that exalts itself above the knowledge and wisdom of God, bringing every high thought or suggestion, into the captivity of the obedience of Christ! This is the beginning of overcoming seducing spirits, and perversity; that falls under the wicked works of spiritual adultery, or whoredoms against God. As Jehu challenged Jezebel’s Eunuchs on whom they would serve, so is the cry of the Spirit of Christ, “Who is on my side, who will you serve? The Eunuchs answer was in their action, they threw Jezebel down!
Galatians 5:19-21 New King James Version (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.

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil work. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy race, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Inordinate affection is an over the top passion, about anything other than our love for the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. An inordinate affection causes us to act disorderly and leads to sin. The greek word associated with it is pathos, meaning mental- you find it in the word: pathological, or psychopathic. We can get mental about a lot of things in this world these days and loose the mind of Christ in it! In fact, with the help of mainstream media and its dangerous slant on truth, many are developing opinions and a world view, in these end times, that will feed into what is described in the bible as the great deception. Satan, the bible says, is like a roaring lion pacing back and forth, seeking for an opportunity to devour. He is looking for the hamstring knock out, that will take us down. For example:
There are Christians that have kept a level head so far, maintaining a balanced view on current social headlines, or issues, until it began to bleed into the NFL.
Suddenly, we have people that (have been thought to be rational and balanced, in their views) going over the top, with inordinate or pathos’ responses because now it has touched on something that they are truly passionate about! The enemy will find our boiling point that will throw us into the ring, letting the god of this world, and the prince of the power of the air, fuel anger to the point we become inflamed; rather than, allowing the Spirit of God to temper our passions.
Nothing, should warrant division among the family of God in these days of ethnic uprisings, prophesied by Christ. We are one holy race. That is it. In all things there is the mind of Christ to be had! If we cleave to our heritages forgetting that God said our heritage is of HIM, then that will breed contention, in times of tension, among ethnic uprising. I suspect that there will be those that have such strong ties, culturally, they will not embrace their heritage that is of the Father, and they will forsake it. Had they ever looked into their identity in Christ, they would have understood what a great inheritance we have in Him. Heirs they are, who believe in their heart that God rose Jesus from the dead, confessing with their mouth He is Lord! Romans 10:9-10
In a world such as ours we should know one thing more than anything else. That is Christ and Him crucified. Seeking discernment of spirits, to differentiate between what all should be known, and what the prince of the power of the air wants us to believe.
Little Children guard your hearts and minds, keep yourself from idols, as John would say. Remembering, we all shall need adjusting, and do even now, like Peter when Jesus said, “You don’t know what spirit ye are of.” For everyone will be tempted to activism when it gets hard, this will be difficult. In all things we should remember that we are Ambassadors of Jesus Christ. So, all we should do and say, is what HE would do and say, to those who dwell outside of HIS Kingdom.
Many, are well acquainted with Jesus but have rejected him, and HIS servants, time and time again; and would have the mind of Christ now, in these days of crisis in America, if they would have listened to Him a long time ago. Still, we compel all … to come. We the (true church) will have the answers. We are citizens of the Kingdom of God. Hopefully, there will be media out reach, and I know many are set up for this, who can be a relevant voice of reason. Rightly dividing the word of truth.
The Lord, spoke to me about a leavening that would be introduced to the whole lump, if we didn’t make sure to: “Guard your hearts and minds in the days and weeks to come.” I heard the Lord say, “You knew it would be just a matter of time?” I answered, “Yes Lord.” Knowing to warn all that love HIM, to know that our affections, our passions; who or what we love, will be used by the enemy to pull any one of us into an agenda, that is earth bound, not heaven sent. In these amazing times the Lord will use His anointed to do great and mighty exploits. Many in the Spirit poised to be a clear and present force with in these days of shakings to come. To be a steady voice in the wilderness, and a stabilizer in the midst of chaotic times. Nevertheless, new works are always at the risk of take over, when they are easiest to infiltrate. That is why we have a carnage of slaughtered unborn, and sexualy abused children, that are targeted in this ruthless world we live in. Satan knows new beginnings don’t have a firm identity to resist splitting its purpose, or aborting it altogether. It will begin with what we think is right and true, because a passion has flared up on the inside of us! Just like pro abortion activists! But the question has to be asked, where did it come from, how was it fueled? Will we end up with more dead works in the world? Another voice of compromise, a mixture in this world? Or, will what God has begun among his Church, His ekklesia, become the representation of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth? An Embassy representing Yeshuah, and His Kingdom ways. In this they will know us by OUR love.
Leavening is a fermentation that begins to spread in the dough, it lies dormant until all the right conditions come together and then it spreads very quickly.
If one were to change their mind about adding yeast, it can only be done if the fermentation is localized and then cut out, after its been introduced. Leavening is like sin. SIN means to fall short. A thing can seem right until it is debated, or another side is told. A man thinks to himself his way is right, but the end of that way is death. I pray that in every way, we as Christians seek the full counsel of God, in all things. Because perilous times are coming. Why should we take a rabid dog by the ears in an argument not our own, in a time when evil is all around us? We are in this world not of it, and careful prayer for supernatural wisdom is required to navigate through all things called a controversy, victoriously. In Mathew 24 Jesus said, there will be wars and rumors of war, nation will rise against nation .. the word in greek for nation is ETHOS’ from it the word ethnic is derived. Believe me brothers and sisters, you will want both feet in the Kingdom of God in these days of wars, and rumors of wars, nations rising up against nations! Not leaving one foot, stubbornly, stirring in those sin born controversies where there is no clear path to embrace. For sin lies in the heart of men. The heart is exceedingly wicked. Cleave to God and His son the Lord Jesus, He will give you a VOICE that will be heard, in these ethnic risings, and rumors of war! You are of one faith and baptism, you are of a Holy Priesthood one nation. Why do the heathen rage and the peoples imagine a vain thing? As we read on in Mathew chapter 24 the scripture says, “and this gospel shall be preached …” see that? (And) (while) (as) these things are going on – This gospel shall be preached!
We cannot be doing both! It is clearly one way or the other. Either you and I are part of the uprising, the wars, and rumors of wars, or we are preaching this gospel Of the Lord Jesus Christ! Remember you are in Christ, dead to the old man! The old man is a reveller! The message of the cross, and true repentance of sin is the answer to mankind’s ills.
Psalms 2:8 Ask me and I will make the Nations [Etho’-s] your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
Put on the New Self. If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For you are DEAD, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.
Mortify therefore your members which are on the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience: In the which you also walked some time, when you lived in them. But now you also put off all these; ANGER, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is RENEWED in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is NEITHER Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor un circumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
Put on therefore, AS THE ELECT of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do you. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also you are called in one body; and be you thankful. Let the WORD of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and ADMONISHING one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
… they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, you are God, which have made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that is in them …Acts 4:24
I want to talk about the power of corporate moves of God, brought into smaller meetings at home. When we meet together in Christ we might as well begin to think of ourselves as the member of an orchestra or choir! Because this is what the Church is, an instrument in God’s orchestra! After all we are called the Body of Christ, and every part has his or her place.
Lifting Up One Voice
While in buildings, a larger group usually has a platform for appointees to lead out, and bring congregants into unified prayer or worship; in smaller groups it doesn’t necessarily have to work that way, because they are often less structured. We need to remember the first Christian family met under circumstances more similar to a home meeting, rather than buildings and platforms; with microphones, and speakers. Jesus said that when ever two or three are gathered in His name, there HE is in our midst. This is going to be different than our personal time with Him, that is usually inwardly focused. Christ is in us, and we are in Him. In a group He draws us outward to the center of the gathering, where He is. He is the head of the Church, and we (through Him) become joined in a corporate move of HIS Spirit.
When we continue to gather in this way Jesus nits our hearts together, and we become unified in spirit, as the group evolves.
Coming together in one mind and accord is quickly accomplished by praying, and worshiping together, as long as the prayer, praise, and worship, achieves corporate status. What the bible calls “coming together in one mind and in one accord.” As strange as it seems, individuals in a group gathering can be so timid and internal in their prayers and worship, that the group never achieves a true unity of spirit. In fact fractions are more likely to exist in a corporate setting that does nothing to spiritually unify the people to function as a body. Jesus is unable to show His power among them, they must yield to the corporate anointing, and enter in.
A good way to enter in is by simply yielding to an anointed vocal lead that has lifted their voice up in prayer, or praise, to draw the group into unity. In a smaller setting the group can just begin to move in open laudation, until a lead voice is made distinct while praises to God go upward. The lead laudation is an anointed voice of worship, prayer, or praise, that the group finds easy to follow. Your spirit will feel the power of agreement.
What is then good to do is to blend into that laudation. As other voices blend, the lead out dissolves into a corporate voice, this group has achieved a “one in mind and one in accord” voice of praise, worship, and prayer. The lord uses whom ever HE wills, and with that we begin to blend our voice in worship, with the most anointed laudation going forth among the saints, (whom ever the Spirit has moved upon) and this is going upward, and not inward, but is of throne room power! Following inspired leads in the Spirit is called “being carried in” to anointed worship. Worship leaders do that for congregations all the time, if they have the anointing to do so.
I’ve seen groups become so unified that no lead voices are needed, they just enter into the high praises of God all at once! Jumping into the deep side of the river of God all at the same time!
It is the Holy Spirit that leads the saints to a higher ground of worship, praise, power, and ministry. Remember we want that because it is the anointing that breaks the yoke! An Holy Spirit inspired group breaks powerful resistances! Sometimes, in spirit filled meetings, there is an appointed person that has that spearhead anointing and they may do that for a season. But, it can change, and should be interchangeable as new lead voices enter in. As the scripture says when something is revealed to another they should then have their turn, and the word says let the first prophet then yield. 1 Corinth 29:29-30
So when a new voice of leading matches the existing voice in anointing, the new voice should be given place, that will lead the group up and onward toward unified prayer, worship, and praise! This is good practice in prophecy, ministry, sharing the word, and spiritual songs. Sometimes the person who leads out hears a laudation of praise in a less bold voice that they blend with, and they amplify it up corporately and that starts the one mind and one accord laudations, because they carried an anointing that leaped in their spirit when it was heard. A wise worship leader will amplify from their platform what is hitting the masses, in waves of glory, to pull it in and send it back out, that the glory reaches those at the far ends of the meeting place. In a smaller groups, the group just carries it on from glory to glory.
Give The Lord His Due
We Got to give God HIS first before we move in on a pre determined event or need. Sometimes, our Spirit filled worship brings so much power the needs are washed away, and freedom falls down like a blanket over everyone. The first Spirit filled meeting moved in this way, while all were praying in one accord, the power of God came down and they were all filled! When we pray, and a voice goes forth with power, and it is outward and not inward, and it leads and lifts the gathered believers up into corporate anointed prayer- then that unified prayer will carry against oppositions, against God’s people, on a corporate level, or even city wide.
It brings in the move of the Spirit! As one makes five thousand to run, two or more makes tens of thousands! This is the power of unified prayer against the enemy! In the event that the Spirit leads us into unified prayer, it is good to remember, our prayer closet prayers are wonderful, but corporate prayer ministry is a little different.
When we bury our face, or walk to a corner, and start praying to ourselves, or turn on our own music, and plug it into our ears, we are disbanding from the group.
We should do these kind of prayers before meetings, only. To get our heads straight for the group. It’s ok to have early time in a corporate setting to give people time alone with God, but when it’s time to come together, it is time to walk out of our prayer closet and join the group. When the saints of God continue in corporate ministry, the mind of Christ will come forth. Christ is working by His Spirit, collectively in the midst of the saints, that are gathered. Together, our hearts are synchronized by the Spirit of the Lord to carry the burden of the Lord.
When we lead in prayer out loud we must not go to prayer changing from subject to subject, as if we are working through a list. We have to make sure we do not shift the focus, before others are able to audibly agree or enhance the prayer with their own spoken power of agreement. Saints that run through a list of prayers, leading in corporate prayer, are forgetting that they are not in their prayer closet, and that another instrument of God may harmonize on the matter, in a way God may reveal them to do so. That will add power towards the answer.
Also, when in corporate prayer our prayer focuses should be corporate when praying for individuals in the community. Instead of praying for that one in jail, pray for all those that are in jail and prison in the community. Or that one battling cancer, come against the spirit of cancer on all the saints of God you know. Trouble with a child, lift up all sons and daughters in rebellion, because in that group there is power to do it! Remembering to give room, and give place, to one another. So that not one stone is left un turned. For another vessel in the group may have a revelation to share on that burden of prayer; bringing words of knowledge, and wisdom, in the matter, that would move it into victory.
When corporate anointing is freely expressing itself in unity, an event of power and Holy distribution of healing and deliverances will ensue.
Like what happened on the day of Pentecost, a powerful move of God spilled out into the city through a Spirit filled, unified group, unashamedly worshipping God!
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with ONE ACCORD in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house. Act2:1”
This is how we can be sure to be led by the SPIRIT and not by our human spirit or emotions. When we allow group ministry to enter the house on a corporate level, at times healing and deliverances take place while we are busy unified in the Spirit, in worship and prayer. It is later after we have ushered in the SPIRIT like one mighty river (with our individual streams of worship, and prayer joining in) that there will be an abundance of anointing to do personal ministry over those who have already been under a deluge of power, in unified praise and worship.
This is that which loosens and pre-soaks hard roots so that personal ministry and deliverance will be most effective. Over the years I have had many prayer meetings, and home meetings, and have taught on corporate prayer. It is very sad to attend a prayer meeting at a church or an event that has 50 to a hundred people walking around, by themselves, standing in a corner, bent down at an alter, and milling around in the foyer, and you can hear a pin drop, with no unified voices lifted up! This is not corporate prayer. It is individual prayer in a corporate setting, and more times than not the Spirit of God is quenched, and the power that could have been released from that meeting, is for ever lost.
When groups first begin to come together. It is important that ministry doesn’t get locked into an introverted flow, time and time again.
It’s important to minister to one another, and is in many ways the whole point; but, when we give the Father the first portion of anything- the latter portion will be multiplied, in healings, deliverances; and in word, and prophecy! As we seen with Peter, who preached to the people when 3,000 were saved! He did this after a corporately anointed meeting!
Getting Started With A Reserved Group
If you have a church or group and it is difficult to bring the group together in one mind and accord, than making a gesture to come in a circle to hold hands is a good start. That is a unity excersize, as is singing songs, and letting people each share, breaks the ice. But you may have to embarrass your flesh to lead them into out loud laudation yourself. Go ahead there is usually one just hoping you would so they can join you in the bunch! Lead them into that abandoned worship, where each one forgets about him or herself self, and lifts their voice entering into the flow of the Spirit- this is called the high praises of God, and is what creates extraordinary moves of the Spirit.
Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord God almighty! Who was, is and is the to come!
TOMMY HICKS’ END-TIMES VISION.
The Body Of Christ Vision
Revivalist: Tommy Hicks July 25th, 1961
My message begins July 25, about 2:30 in the morning at Winnipeg, Canada.
I had hardly fallen asleep when the vision and the reve
lation that God gave me came before me. The vision came three times, exactly in detail, the morning of July 25, 1961. I was so stirred and so moved by the revelation that this has changed my complete outlook upon the body of Christ, and upon the end time ministries. The greatest thing that the church of Jesus Christ has ever been given lies straight ahead. It is so hard to help men and women to realize and understand the thing that God is trying to give his people in the end times. I received a letter several weeks ago from one of our native evangelists down in Africa, down in Nairobi. This man and his wife were on their way to Tanganyika. They could neither read nor could they write, but we had been supporting them for over two years. As they entered into the territory of Tanganyika, they came across a small village. The entire village was evacuating because of a plague that had hit the village. He came across natives that were weeping, and he asked them what was wrong. They told him of their mother and father who had suddenly died, and they had been dead for three days. They had to leave. They were afraid to go in; they were leaving them in the cottage. He turned and asked them where they were. They pointed to the hut and he asked them to go with him, but they refused. They were afraid to go. The native and his wife went to this little cottage and entered in where the man and woman had been dead for three days. He simply stretched forth his hand in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and spoke the man’s name and the woman’s name and said, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to come back to your bodies.” Instantaneously these two heathen people who had never known Jesus Christ as their Savior sat up and immediately began to praise God. The spirit and the power of God came into the life of those people. To us that may seem strange and a phenomenon, but that is the beginning of these end-time ministries. God is going to take the do-nothings, the nobodies, the unheard-of, the no-accounts. He is going to take every man and every woman and he is going to give to them this outpouring of the Spirit of God.
In the book of Acts we read that “In the last days,” God said, “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.”
I wonder if we realize what he meant when God said, “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.” I do not think I fully realized nor could I understand the fullness of it, and then I read from the book of Joel: “Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain -” (Joel 2:23). It is not only going to be the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, but he is going to give to his people in these last days a double portion of the power of God! As the vision appeared to me after I was asleep, I suddenly found myself in a great high distance. Where I was, I do not know. But I was looking down upon the earth. Suddenly the whole earth came into my view. Every nation, every kindred, every tongue came before my sight from the east and the west, the north and the south. I recognized every country and many cities that I had been in, and I was almost in fear and trembling as I beheld the great sight before me: and at that moment when the world came into view, it began to lightning and thunder. As the lightning flashed over the face of the earth, my eyes went downward and I was facing the north. Suddenly I beheld what looked like a great giant, and as I stared and looked at it, I was almost bewildered by the sight. It was so gigantic and so great. His feet seemed to reach to the north pole and his head to the south. Its arms were stretched from sea to sea. I could not even begin to understand whether this be a mountain or this be a giant, but as I watched, I suddenly beheld a great giant. I could see his head was struggling for life. He wanted to live, but his body was covered with debris from head to foot, and at times this great giant would move his body and act as though it would even raise up at times. And when it did, thousands of little creatures seemed to run away. Hideous creatures would run away from this giant, and when he would become calm, they would come back. All of a sudden this great giant lifted his hand towards heaven, and then it lifted its other hand, and when it did these creatures by the thousands seemed to flee away from this giant and go into the darkness of the night. Slowly this great giant began to rise and as he did, his head and hands went into the clouds. As he rose to his feet he seemed to have cleansed himself from the debris and filth that was upon him, and he began to raise his hands into the heavens as though praising the Lord, and as he raised his hands, they went even unto the clouds. Suddenly, every cloud became silver, the most beautiful silver I have ever known.
As I watched this phenomenon it was so great I could not even begin to understand what it all meant. I was so stirred as I watched it, and I cried unto the Lord and I said, “Oh Lord, what is the meaning of this.” and I felt as if I was actually in the Spirit and I could feel the presence of the Lord even as I was asleep. And from those clouds suddenly there came great drops of liquid light raining down upon this mighty giant, and slowly, slowly, this giant began to melt, began to sink itself in the very earth itself, and as he melted, his whole form seemed to have melted upon the face of the earth, and this great rain began to come down. Liquid drops of light began to flood the very earth itself and as I watched this giant that seemed to melt, suddenly it became millions of people over the face of the earth. As I beheld the sight before me, people stood up all over the world! They were lifting their hands and they were praising the Lord. At that very moment there came a great thunder that seemed to roar from the heavens. I turned my eyes toward the heavens and suddenly I saw a figure in white, in glistening white – the most glorious thing that I have ever seen in my entire life. I did not see the face, but somehow I knew it was the Lord Jesus Christ, and he stretched forth his hand, and as he did, he would stretch it forth to one, and to another, and to another. And as he stretched forth his hand upon the nations and the people of the world – men and women – as he pointed toward them, this liquid light seemed to flow from his hands into them, and a mighty anointing of God came upon them, and those people began to go forth in the name of the Lord. I do not know how long I watched it.
It seemed it went into days and weeks and months. And I beheld this Christ as he continued to stretch forth his hand; but there was a tragedy. There were many people as he stretched forth his hand that refused the anointing of God and the call of God. I saw men and women that I knew. People that I felt would certainly receive the call of God. But as he stretched forth his hand toward this one and toward that one, they simply bowed their head and began to back away. And each of those that seemed to bow down and back away, seemed to go into darkness. Blackness seemed to swallow them everywhere. I was bewildered as I watched it, but these people that he had anointed, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, in Africa, England, Russia, China, America, all over the world, the anointing of God was upon these people as they went forward in the name of the Lord. I saw these men and women as they went forth. They were ditch diggers, they were washerwomen, they were rich men, they were poor men. I saw people who were bound with paralysis and sickness and blindness and deafness. As the Lord stretched forth to give them this anointing, they became well, they became healed, and they went forth! And this is the miracle of it – this is the glorious miracle of it – those people would stretch forth their hands exactly as the Lord did, and it seemed as if there was this same liquid fire in their hands. As they stretched forth their hands they said, “According to my word, be thou made whole.” As these people continued in this mighty end-time ministry, I did not fully realize what it was, and I looked to the Lord and said, “What is the meaning of this?” And he said, “This is that which I will do in the last days. I will restore all that the cankerworm, the palmerworm, the caterpiller – I will restore all. that they have destroyed. This, my people, in the end times will go forth.
As a mighty army shall they sweep over the face of the
earth.” As I was at this great height, I could behold the whole world. I watched these people as they were going to and fro over the face of the earth. Suddenly there was a man in Africa and in a moment he was transported by the Spirit of God, and perhaps he was in Russia, or China or America or some other place, and vice versa. All over the world these people went, and they came through fire, and through pestilence, and through famine. Neither fire nor persecution, nothing seemed to stop them. Angry mobs came to them with swords and with guns. And like Jesus, they passed through the multitudes and they could not find them, but they went forth in the name of the Lord, and everywhere they stretched forth their hands, the sick were healed, the blind eyes were opened. There was not a long prayer, and after I had reviewed the vision many times in my mind, and I thought about it many times, I realised that I never saw a church, and I never saw or heard a denomination, but these people were going in the name of the Lord of Hosts. Hallelujah!
As they marched forth in everything they did as the ministry of Christ in the endtimes.
… these people were ministering to the multitudes over the face of the earth. Tens of thousands, even millions seemed to come to the Lord Jesus Christ as these people stood forth and gave the message of the kingdom, of the coming kingdom, in this last hour. It was so glorious, but it seems as though there were those that rebelled, and they would become angry and they tried to attack those workers that were giving the message. God is going to give the world a demonstration in this last hour as the world has never known. These men and women are of all walks of life, degrees will mean nothing. I saw these workers as they were going over the face of the earth. When one would stumble and fall, another would come and pick him up. There were no “big I” and “little you,” but every mountain was brought low and every valley was exalted, and they seemed to have one thing in common – there was a divine love, a divine love that seemed to flow forth from these people as they worked together, and as they lived together. It was the most glorious sight that I have ever known. Jesus Christ was the theme of their life. They continued and it seemed the days went by as I stood and beheld this sight. I could only cry, and sometimes I laughed. It was so wonderful as these people went throughout the face of the whole earth, bringing forth in this last end time.
As I watched from the very heaven itself, there were times when great deluges of this liquid light seemed to fall upon great congregations, and that congregation would lift up their hands and seemingly praise God for hours and even days as the Spirit of God came upon them. God said, “I will pour my Spirit upon all flesh,” and that is exactly this thing. And to every man and every woman that received this power, and the anointing of God, the miracles of God, there was no ending to it.
We have talked about miracles. We have talked about signs and wonders,
but I could not help but weep as I read again this morning, at 4 o’clock this morning the letter from our native workers. This is only the evidence of the beginning for one man, a “do-nothing, an unheard-of,” who would go and stretch forth his hand and say, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to flow into your body.” I dropped to my knees and began to pray again, and I said, “Lord, I know that this time is coming soon!” And then again, as these people were going about the face of the earth, a great persecution seemed to come from every angle. Suddenly there was another great clap of thunder, that seemed to resound around the world, and I heard again the voice, the voice that seemed to speak, “Now this is my people. This is my beloved bride.” And when the voice spoke, I looked upon the earth and I could see the lakes and the mountains. The graves were opened and people from all over the world, the saints of all ages, seemed to be rising. And as they rose from the grave, suddenly all these people came from every direction. From the east and the west, from the north and the south, and they seemed to be forming again this gigantic body. As the dead in Christ seemed to be rising first, I could hardly comprehend it. It was so marvellous. It was so far beyond anything I could ever dream or think of. But as this body suddenly began to form, and take shape again, it took shape again in the form of this mighty giant, but this time it was different. It was arrayed in the most beautiful gorgeous white. Its garments were without spot or wrinkle as its body began to form, and the people of all ages seemed to be gathered into this body, and slowly, slowly, as it began to form up into the very heavens, suddenly from the heavens above, the Lord Jesus came, and became the head, and I heard another clap of thunder that said, “This is my beloved bride for whom I have waited. She will come forth even tried by fire. This is she that I have loved from the beginning of time.”
As I watched, my eyes suddenly turned to the far north,
and I saw seemingly destruction: men and women in anguish and crying out, and buildings in destruction. Then I heard again, the fourth voice that said, “Now is My wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth.” From the ends of the whole world, the wrath of God seemed to be poured out and it seemed that there were great vials of God’s wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth. I can remember it as though it happened a moment ago. I shook and trembled as I beheld the awful sight of seeing the cities, and whole nations going down into destruction. I could hear the weeping and wailing. I could hear people crying. They seemed to cry as they went into caves, but the caves in the mountains opened up. They leaped into water, but the water would not drown them. There was nothing that could destroy them. They were wanting to take their lives, but they could not. Then again I turned my eyes to this glorious sight, this body arrayed in beautiful white, shining garments. Slowly, slowly, it began to lift from the earth, and as it did, I awoke. What a sight I had beheld! I had seen the end-time ministries – the last hour. Again on July 27, at 2:30 in the morning, the same revelation, the same vision came again exactly as it did before. My life has been changed as I realised that we are living in that end time, for all over the world God is anointing men and women with this ministry. It will not be doctrine. It will not be a churchianity. It is going to be Jesus Christ. They will give forth the word of the Lord, and are going to say, “I heard it so many times in the vision and according to my word it shall be done.”
