The Five Fold Tier Of Prophetic Interpretation.
Deana explains how special anointings and giftings from out of the fivefold ministry, (mentioned in Ephesians 4) impact variation in prophetic interpretation.
For the prophetic dreamer.
Surely the Lord GOD does nothing unless he reveals His secret counsel
to His servants the prophets.
And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, which call you by your name, am the God of Israel.
The prophetic symbolism of glass doors. What a glass door means in dreams. What sliding glass doors mean. What French doors, and windowed doors can mean in a dream. The following is that of a front door of the dreamer’s home.
As is mentioned on our site at NWP we share dreams submitted to us with our readers, while protecting the dreamer’s personal information, for teaching purposes. This response has been expanded as a teaching segment.
Dear ——–, this is a coaching segment on symbolism that is in your dream and not an official interpretation. That doesn’t mean what I have written here can’t be connected to your heart by the Holy Spirit while you read this. In fact, it usually works out that way.
(The dreamer is standing at their front door in their foyer. It is a windowed door, but the window portion of the door is blocked. Another entrance door is on the inner wall of the interior wall that doesn’t lead out doors. Its window is blocked as well.)
There are two reasons why you would be standing in the foyer of your home facing the front door in a dream. It has to do with getting ready. Getting ready for something yet to be revealed, someone you may be expecting, or somewhere you’re prepared to go. That opening scene stages your intent in the dream for what ever follows. An act of expectation and/or readiness, alertness, being alerted to … Doors often speak of opportunities or visits that bring change. So, in your place of preparation and readiness you, are either going out or responding to a knock on the door, this is where you are standing in the dream. How many of us have put our coats and hats on while standing in the foyer, facing the door? How many of us have quickly primped our hair, adjusted our collar, or dried our hands on the dish towel, before opening the door? This is readiness and preparation.
Of course if you are coming in with your back to the door you’ve just come from some where. This would symbolise a finished task, a time to relax, home life being attended to. Where the dream takes you from there speaks to that. In the dream this dreamer sent there is a capacity built in the door to reveal what is beyond it. A window. This is prophetic seeing. But, in the dreamer’s dream it’s blocked. Most doors don’t let us see what/ who is on the other side, until we open them.
This is a special door. It is a window door. To let light in, to see, to view through. The window, though cosmetically charming, serves for our safety, and for observation in order to KNOW. It is for discernment purposes. Your dream is revealing to you that there are revelatory giftings provided for you, to help you discern when to open doors and engage, and when not to. This enables you in your “place of readiness” to properly respond to who is at the door. It also helps you to properly prepare yourself for the weather that you’re about to walk into. The framework we have here of the “window door” reveals a higher anointing, and greater responsibility. Jesus has the keys and is the door. He comes in and goes out at will. The door He opens no one can shut.
The window door is not just seeing or viewing as one does through windows, but takes us into a greater realm of authority in Christ’s work where you are prophetically seeing, and then engaging with what you see. If you are reading this and have not Christ as your Lord, you must get on with making Him Lord of your life. He has a wonder filled calling that He is calling you with. He stands at the door and knocks.
In the Father, what we need in order to see, supernaturally, is found through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These are revelatory spiritual enablements, clustered together that often provides the same natural service as WINDOWS do on a door. For the purpose of FORESEEING what is to come where we are going in our ministry. Windows provide LIGHT and WARMTH, this is the same as (revelation of the knowledge of HIS glory) through the frame work of heavenly viewing by gifts of the Spirit. Often staged in dreams and visions- windows and doors, are a common sight for the prophet/ seer anointing.
Through the windowed door you can see what good or bad weather systems you are going to be walking into. This is true regarding spiritual atmospheres, as well. If I had this dream I would immediately check my security systems in the natural (actual) house to make sure they were working properly, and be praying for spiritual discernment, being that your windows were blocked. Sometimes the natural and spiritual realm interweave. So, always consider natural and spiritual applications; they are not, necessarily, just one or the other in dreams, they could be both. For example a security camera lens could be blocked. Certainly, a blocked windowed door is a security issue in the spirit realm because the viewing capacity “to see” is blocked.
If the window plate is missing this is in reference to filters- which means wisdom, the purpose for the entire window enhanced door is undermined for lack of wisdom, that needs to be applied to the frame work of your prophetic interchanges and readiness. However, if the board is just blocking your view through the glass, while everything is in place- then, there are just some blockages in the way. Like you said, the temporary “needed peeled off”. I would incorporate that language in my prayer regarding the doors and blocked windows.
Boarded up windows involve intent, this seems to speak of an additional protectant undermining natural use and natural flow. From the inside it may be coming from you, from the outside, possibly, from a religious mindset coming from outside of your life. Where ever the “boarding up” comes from it is man made and man inspired. Jesus is the Prince of Peace and the Holy Spirit teaches us how to operate our giftings.
Prayer ministry and determination for you to have all God has for you, through HIS son, the Lord Jesus Christ, will address the issue that is blocking your vision in all of your going out, and your coming in. Even doors of passage with in your own home, when cleared, will assist you in family matters of discernment, and readiness for what God is doing in your own household. This is referring to the “inner door” or interior door, mentioned. If it is, also, located in the foyer this, again, speaks to readiness. Please confirm you have received our correspondence.

Trust The Gift
I was working on a craft to give to my daughter for her new house, a few years ago. The artwork was pre-cut and I spent a significant amount of time putting it together. What was required to finish it was some free hand drawings right in the middle of the piece. I realized that there was no room for error, the hours I spent on this piece of art could be spoiled if I didn’t do it right the first time. Right away, I felt like my hand wasn’t as steady as it should be, so I took a break and came back, I studied upon it and thought there was no way that I was going to finish this project with a drawing in felt marker as I planned. It would have to be perfection at one strike of the pen, so to speak.
I looked at the piece on the craft table and began to wonder what I was thinking. That I could just waltz over there and free hand a drawing with no hesitation. Even though I inherited my mother’s ability to draw, having artistic talent of my own, this was a huge challenge. I remember staring at the work in front of me, and actually asking the Lord to help steady my hand, when I heard the Holy Spirit clearly speak three words to me. Trust The Gift.
It reminded me of what a gift truly is, something that did not originate from our own resources but was given to us so that we can accomplish something lovely and unusual. Not everyone has the same gift, and no gift is our own, they are released to us to give beyond ourselves, not just of ourselves. To steward a gift means to develop it in such away it will bring increase to the one who gave it. Even, the Father of Lights. To trust the gift is to not dependend on our own ability but knowing God has given us something beyond our own ability. The gift will rise up in its moment to perform, if we will set aside our fear of risk, and let it. After all, gifts are a piece of heaven. I believe they are spirit. Needless to say, I picked up the felt marker and finished the art work, everything turned out fine.
Proverbs 18:16 A man’s gift makes room for him and stands him before the great.
Responsibilities of The Gift
I carried this lesson over to another creative area in my life that I rarely have had time for until these last seven years. That would be writing. More accurately, this would be prophetic scribing which simply is an operative of the prophetic gift and seer anointing. Which means I write down what I see and hear the Spirit of the Lord telling me. What I hear HIM speaking and what I see HIM saying in visions and dreams. Most of what I publish of that is found on my website: NeWinePouring.com.
The art of scribing is learning the best way to convey what the Lord has shown you, or what you have heard him say. We can straight out document it, or we can submit it allegorically. When I’m writing I like to describe some of the visions and dreams as poetic as I can; as visual as they were when they came to me. Then I follow up with a direct prophetic word, drawn from the scene I was given. For the most part that has been how much of the work, published on the website, has been. Some of the articles were written over several months, as I sought meaning from the Lord, in some of the things I’ve seen. I worked so long on the article called JOURNEY, that by the time it was published much of what I saw in the vision was right on top of us, in world events.
This article is coming about because I know that as much as I have a responsibility to write down what I see and hear. I have a responsibility to teach what I know, and give what I have. My career in management taught me to replace myself, in order to move on to higher levels. Actually, that is a Kingdom principle. The world teaches us to hold everyone back and conceal what we know in order to maintain an upper hand. But, that is really called mediocre living. Kingdom life is the opposite of that, too many people fear being replaced, not understanding it is the circle of life in so many different ways. The circle of life God created, to go from glory to glory.

How I do what I do when I’m doing it? First of all, I don’t consider myself as a writer in the traditional sense. In fact, when I set up my face book page and marked the category the page would be under, I found it listed me as “a writer” to my surprise. I tried to fix it but to no avail, true I have a website and I write, apparently that qualifies me for the title, so according to facebook that makes me a writer. I am, more accurately, documenting for the prophetic gift, and seers anointing. The gift has to flow through my vessel, as visuals are captured on the screen of my mind, so I would more accurately describe myself as a reporter. Years ago when I had a prophetic news letter, the Lord provided for me a proof reader that had a bachelors degree in english. Now all I have is spell check, and the lenience given to one as a blogger. Still, being left to my own eye for grammatical accuracy, and puncutation, challenges my sense of pride. But, the Spirit compels me on.
“Lord, I feared you were a hard business man so I burried my talent …” Matt. 25. It is better to fear God and be a good steward of our gifts, than to fear man and bury them. Using them at every stage they evolve, while seeking counsel, guidence, and training in perfecting them.
In this article I want to talk about what writers call, writers block.
Even prophetic reporters or scribes can experience the same thing. It happens when inspiration, energy, and then interest on a project flattens. Sometimes for days, weeks, and months. In scribing it often has to do with how to convey what was heard by the Spirit or seen. When no idea comes, I wait. The following is how I process through such a thing. Letting go of the anxiety I some times feel when I’m stuck, and remind myself to trust the gift. With no pressure on myself I’ve learned to just “lay it down.” Then I turn to my journals (at leisure) and begin to read through unfinished projects until I come across paragraphs, chapters, or lines, that compel me to write. I work on that project until it is completed, or until there is no more that I can add. I do it even though it’s not the item I’m trying to finish at that time. Having unfinished work means the inspiration has run out, for the moment. It may not be the thing you’re struggling to finish, but in prophetic scribing, the detail you have found to pick up again, may be the line, paragraph, or work that is suppose to be finished at the moment.
We think that all we do must be in linear time; yet, the world and everything in it cycles. Creativity, and spiritual giftings, belong to the flow of the SPIRIT, in circuits and seasons. Like the wind, like the earth, like life. An example would be how we pick up last winter’s knitting on a cold morning, after summer’s break, not thinking we are responding to our patterns in their seasons. It just feels right to do that kind of thing at that time. In prophetic scribing there has been many times when the moment seemed to have come and gone for the word to be “in its season” it is expecially challenging when something happens in the world the work seemed to be fortelling about, before it was fininshed. I have thought during those times that I missed God in timing. But, found that the Lord used that incident embedded in my writings to confirm his word, as the bible says, ” I will confirm my word with signs and wonders following.” Also, words that come from the Spirit of God are timeless classics, whether they are literally in their time or allegorically speaking, in your times and seasons, His word is always relevant. Isaiah describes the cycling nature of HIS word that returns not void but works in cycles and seasons continously watering the earth that in turn provides the eater with bread. This is why the passages in the BIBLE have been relevent for thousands of years.
Isaiah 55:8-11 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD, or as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Hebrew 2:4 And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose.
Demands and deadlines produce shallow offerings in prophetic scribing, and everything else for that matter. On the other hand, when God is in control we can begin a project while not understanding the impact it will have, say, a year from now when it gets completed right on time, to be a fresh word from the Lord though it was first written outside of its perceived relevancy. As for writing don’t get discouraged! As life unfolds the words will come, with greater perspectives. Sometimes growth and change is required to complete inspired works. If we could have a bird’s eye view of where we are sometimes, standing in this creative path, it would be something like the classic movie with Humphry Bogart and Kathrynn Hepburn bogged down in a shallow marsh, stuck in a boat called The African Queen; exhausted, just a few more yards away from the open sea, though it must have felt impossible to get out of, still, when the rains came they we’re freed up and launched out into open waters. Sometime, we just need to camp out until the inspired words come and we are launched back into the shipping lanes of creativity.
If we abandon the boat, or the fork in the road we will never know where it was suppose to take us, and our readers. If we wait on the Lord our road will rise up before us. They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles ...Isaiah 40:31 I have songs and poems that took years to finish. Others came to me in an hour. Or were given additional verses, later. I have prophetic words that have been completed for decades, that had relevancy through the years; but, only now, really fit the times. Trust the gift. Trust God, and trust your intuition.
Those that delight in the Lord’s instruction … Psalm 1:3
shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth fruit in their season; their leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever they do shall prosper.
Revisiting a dream featured in our article called SON of The FATHER’s House.
The Lord came to me as the SON of the Father’s house; a seed sower, husbandman, and harvester. He handed me two shear-cut slated rocks to play in a music machine, that was in the style of a CD player. These rocks were sharp, jagged, and raw edged, around the outside; but, polished, and beautifully ingrained on the inside. They looked like deeply embedded marbled streams of water, with white swirls, taking on the appearance of white water rapids, pouring through mossy green embankments. I looked at the music machine asking the Lord, “Can we play Here Comes the Son?” He kept looking at the slated rocks and said, “I have these, I’ve had them all this time, will you hear them?” I said,”Lord wait, I’ll go tell them you’re here” though He wanted me to stay He relented, and let me go. I went into a back room where there, apparently, was a sixties slumber party of teenage girls just waking up. I told them who had showed up, wanting us to listen to the music stored on these sliced and polished stone discs. They screamed as if he were the Beatles, and they started to get dressed.
I ran out to spend more time with him, again, asking to hear the song, Here Comes the Son. Again, he almost seemed slightly disappointed, he looked at the slated rocks in his hands. I felt moved for him, because he wanted so much to share these songs with me. I remembered the scripture … If these don’t then- the rocks will CRY out. I went back to hurry the girls, each time they were curling their hair, and primping, I pleaded to them, “please hurry, just come as you are, he is waiting, he has music He wants to show you!”, still they kept primping, each time I checked on them they were moving a little slower. Each time I left him alone he would hardly let me go. Finally, they became distracted and was doing other things the last I saw them, I spent the rest of the time left, with HIM. I was in my t-shirt and sweats, my hair was undone. None of that mattered to him as his eyes never looked away from mine. He looked a little forlorn because of the absence of the others but His joy that I was there never dimmed.
HE TOLD me something about a famous song writer I never knew. When I woke up I researched it, and it was true, in the beginning his songs, lesser known, was about Yeshuah. Sadly, his music, rejected by the church so many years ago, did not end where it began in the era of His fame. What is this from heaven? What more to be discovered? What sounds, and songs are etched in the stones that are about to cry out? The Lord did not want to sing, “Here Comes The Son” though the melody was catchy, fun and sunny- a good thought for a rainy day, still it shadows in this one truth we cannot miss. In order to worship God in SPIRIT and in TRUTH we need to comprehend Jesus Christ IS Come, and through him and by Him we enter the throne room of GRACE where by we obtain MERCY in times of need. Similarly, worship is not past, nor future, it is BEING WHOLE HEARTILY with HIM in HIS presence. No preparation apart from the Holy Spirit will lead you to The Father. Grace has made the way, that we may boldly enter in, as we are. The presence of God will transform us into HIS IMAGE. THE QUESTION IS what is the true image of our God who is a consuming fire?
No heavenly song, comes from with out, rather it comes from with in the presence of God. He is the author and the finisher of our faith. The Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. The Sower and the Harvester is the SON OF The FATHERS house. This people, these generations, who dolled themselves up for hours to stand before a stage screaming for their idols- are a people, still, so enthralled with preparations, approaches, and presentation, we missed this one thing. Time spent with Him. We cater to the former so much we miss the latter. Have you heard it said we need to acknowledge the older generation in our music? Play their old tunes to spark them up? Honoring the older generations is commendable, but in this they should be at the helm. I am that older generation, the tail-end of the Jesus movement harvest; and I can tell you if they are not in the inner courts now, they never will be. Simeon and Anna were waiting for the Lord in the temple daily according to Luke 2:35, elderly as they were, they did not want to miss a thing; not only did they greet and meet the generation that brought forth the Messiah, they prophesied and recognized, His arrival. Aged Simeon was led of The Lord to meet Jesus and His parents at the temple. Simeon prophesied over Him, and Anna was the first woman to preach Jesus among those looking for the Messiah. She never left the temple but stayed there day and night, she was a prophetess over 80 years old.
It is God’s order that the elder generation meet the present day visitation as long as they are standing in their place, with enthusiasm, waiting for what they have been prophetically watching for [Lo] these many years. Always looking for Christ in His second coming, and the moves of His Spirit that will usher in His everlasting kingdom. As the scripture says, parents are for the children, not children for the parents. The Church has got to stop pandering to idol worshiping ears, that will never appreciate the sound of heaven but will bog down the assent in the fair way. So much is said about grooming the congregation into the act of worship so that they will not be left behind … Does it occur to anyone that is where they want most to be? Left behind? Shall we not go? Leadership is upset that the foyer fills up, rather than the altar, you compel, and compel, before you have entered in yourself, but few respond.
The dream challenged me- in my determination to bring the “slumber party” to the place where they could hear these songs, I kept leaving the moment to bring others in. Risking what ever it was that God wanted to impart to me would be missed in the perishable moments called a VISITATION. SOMEONE must receive from the Lord or none ever will. The airlines tell us, “Put the oxygen mask on yourself first, then reach for those that cannot do it for themselves.” Why? Because if you don’t secure for yourself first, both will die for lack of oxygen. Christ first always. Cut off the pandering, put on the oxygen mask, get a fresh lung full of GOD BREATH, and then we’ll have what it takes to motivate the late arrivals. You see, there is always the danger of the former generation’s mindsets delaying the new. For Example, the wilderness generation that had to die off before the new generation could enter into the promise land. Save Caleb, another great elder, of great strength, and faith. So beneficial for the crossing over, how much His stories caused the younger generation to burn in their heart for the promised land. What to gain is Christ, and Christ alone.
Let the slumber party sleep, they had their day. Had they stayed awake they never would have missed the INTRO that would have led them to the BRIDGE. Your encounter with the throne shall drench you with the dew of the morning. The thirsty will find it upon you, and seek for more, hold not back, let not the outer court, the FOYER LOVERS, the generations that refuse to budge, (unless their MUSIC IS PREDOMINANT, and their palate satisfied) dictate the MASTER’S IMPARTATIONS upon His WORSHIPPERS that will usher them into the APOSTOLIC rule and reign of CHRIST on this earth. For the nature of what is about to be released in the earth as far as the SOUND and the SONG will be unto Satan the stench of a death dirge, to his rule and reign. Those found worthy will wait upon Christ, if they miss it the ROCKs still will declare it, and another generation of lost WORSHIPPERS will become pawns of a sound and melody that incites idol worship, for by its very nature music sways the masses into singleness of mind that is manipulated to SERVE SOMEBODY, should the Church fail to receive it.
Here Comes The Sons … How Satan so desires to have music born of heaven for it shall surely shall become the theme song to a new world order, if He can get His hands on it, and twist the gift of God for his own purposes, as he has in generations past. After all, Lucifer knows the power and influence of music. So then, let the sleepers lie. Move forward to your AWAKENING, the sound and the new song is creation in her groanings, singing harmony with the throne of God, in this shall your generations come from out of their GRAVES. Does not this present generation love to act out the NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD? IS NOT THE ZOMBIE NATION this generation’s walking dead? Is the earth itself not groaning horrors? Shall not the stars fall down from the sky? What kind of music will come out of heaven and declare this generation? Even define its high call? Will not a Holy Tempest stir up from with in, and join the fountain heads and rivers from the corporate priesthood, and Holy Race? THE LIVING WATERS, Rushing down over the evergreen embankments, where all that is living breathes? The STONES are cut and polished smooth, what is this sound of heaven, that Christ is so enthralled about giving us, this one who came to me as the SON of the Fathers House who is the author and finisher of our faith?
As music interprets a generation, as it somehow relates to them, as they are conduits that carry heaven’s composition, so it is worth contending for waiting on heaven to receive, until it comes. The Worshipers go first, they head up the processions of victory, it is from the HEARING realm we shall first be alerted before the great day. For as it is written: With the voice of an arch angle and the trump of God … So let us have ears to hear, the sounds that come from Heaven. For out of it will come the fire of God that burns the incense of our worship, releasing the aroma, even the fragrances that mingle with His glory, come from His throne.
2 Corinthians 2:16 (AMP) For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the latter it is an aroma [wafted] from death to death [a fatal odor, the smell of doom]; to the former it is an aroma from life to life [a vital fragrance, living and fresh]. And who is qualified (fit and sufficient) for these things? [Who is able for such a ministry? We?]
The difference between the many who are called, and the few who are chosen. It all lies in our response to the word of God when we hear it. What stirs hell to attention? You. What you do with what you are given. The kingdom of God belongs to those who take hold of it. Not many wise, not many noble, but those considered weak by this worlds standards, putting to shame the strength of this world. HIS strength is made perfect in our weakness. To become a champion of the faith is to respond to the call of God, trusting Him with our lives to do the impossible, through us.

Spirit Life II -In Your Seeing. Teaching regarding the prophetic gift.
Impressions, learning how to hear the still small voice of God. When soft doves land.
Thank you for your giving. Deana Barnes
Several weeks ago the Lord opened my eyes once again to the Red River Nation as it passed before me in a vision, this time I saw my self wearing peasant clothes, I looked up and saw the Lord instruct the reins of a horse to be handed to me. I was then handed banners, one for my clan, a banner for my tribe, and the crimson banner depicting the Holy Race, that banner was raised up to join the others above the procession, creating a crimson red river from the eagles eye view. Jesus looked to me and said, “You have nothing because you wanted nothing, other than this that has been in your heart all these many years.” At that my eyes were open to the fact that I was in this mobile assembly coursing through the land, moving through out all nations. We are in it already, I believe, and where ever it takes us it will sometimes be seen and sometimes un seen, as if to move in and out of the shadows of the great rock mountain. For many the reports of it, will be described as just the rumblings of thunder, many others will here the voice of the Lord compelling them to come, they will know where to meet and join her, intuitively. It is my conviction to be aware that it is a moving breathing assembly of the gathered, in the spirit, after the order of Melchizedek, who was a type and shadow of Jesus of whom we are (his body) – as Christ is so are we in the earth! From where does this procession come? Where is it going? We will only “fully know” when we get there, then shall we fully understand. This is my take on it, so far, and I know that in this life we look through it all as it were, through stained and tinted glass, and we should always remember:
John 3:8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
This word has come through many different venues but the jest of it is- A camp-out in the tradition of the festival of booths, shall manifest momentarily, the assembly, out from the shadows of the big rock mountain. A well spring of glory shall flood the land and carry the remnant like a river current, out to sea, and a great thrust of gathering will spill out into all nations from this place among many, this high place, this mountain-top of seeking, a place from where rivers are made.
Birds find nooks and crannies in your house, sparrows and swallows make nests there. They lay their eggs and raise their young, singing their songs in the place where we worship. God-of-the-Angel-Armies! King! God! How blessed they are to live and sing there!
And how blessed all those in whom you live, whose lives become roads you travel; They wind through lonesome valleys, come upon brooks, discover cool springs and pools brimming with rain! God-traveled, these roads curve up the mountain, and at the last turn—Zion! God in full view! God-of-the-Angel-Armies, listen:O God of Jacob, open your ears—I’m praying! Look at our shields, glistening in the sun our faces, shining with your gracious anointing. One day spent in your house, this beautiful place of worship, beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches. I’d rather scrub floors in the house of my God than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin. All sunshine and sovereign is God, generous in gifts and glory. He doesn’t scrimp with his traveling companions. It’s smooth sailing all the way with God-of-the-Angel-Armies.
Dogwood Spring. A prophetic word for us to wait upon the Lord in the “hour of listening”. Metaphorically speaking, spring is a type of morning, as morning is a type of spring. In February the Lord gave me a word for the kind of spring we were going to have on the East Coast. Just as He did last year, in the Floridian Mandate prophecy. I call these little revelations “prophetic markers” or “signposts” to confirm our journey through times of uncertainty. Such as the unpredictable weather patterns we are having, that seem to showcase the unpredictable world we are living in. Yet, Christ … is the rock we cling to, the solid foundation we build our lives upon, if we are to know peace in this world.
Philipians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
February 2/7/2013 dogwood spring: ” This spring will be like a pre-dawn morning. An extended “early spring” wet and chilly. “Lined flannel weather.”
The TALL SHIP BOUNTY is in the news today as an investigation wraps up that examined why she sank off of the banks of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, during hurricane Sandy. A “generator” failed that was pumping water from the vessel. Of course that was not the reason Bounty sank. It was a storm unpredictable, and a series of decisions made before and after the failed generators. Much like America is facing today. We are running on economic GENERATORS, and paper money to keep this vessel a float. Will they prevail the storms, or will they fail in the midst of them? Read on.
The details embedded in this story have interesting connections and coincidences that make you wonder, “Is the Sinking of the Tall Ship Bounty a harbinger of things to come?”
har·bin·ger : Noun. A person or thing that announces or signals the approach of another. A forerunner of something. Synonyms herald – forerunner – precursor – messenger – portent.
The ships of Tarshish (seafaring vessels) were your ocean caravans. Your island warehouse was filled to the brim! “But look! Your oarsmen are rowing your ship of state into a hurricane! Your mighty vessel flounders in the heavy eastern gale. You are shipwrecked in the heart of the sea! Everything is lost — your riches and wares, your sailors and helmsmen, your ship builders, merchants, and warriors. On that day of vast ruin, everyone on board sinks into the depths of the sea. “Your cities by the sea tremble as your helmsmen cry out in terror. All the oarsmen abandon their ships; the sailors and helmsmen come to stand on the shore.
Prayer Journal 3/8/2013
Asia on my heart and mind today, the sleeping giant has been waking and with that an “awakening”. The Lord showed me an army of Asian intercessors praying- for China and Southeast Asia, still remembering a “sea of hands” lifted up in praise to God in Indonesia. Mongolia geologically erupts, and Russia shakes, again awakenings and humanitarian aid flows into isolated places, with it shafts of light … A stirring in North Korea-What seems impossible with men is possible with God. I see a man carrying a shepherd’s rod through the rural lands of North Korea, the Shepherd is among his people, seeking and gathering the flock. The heart of the Father is moving through the land, he captures the heart of broken sons and daughters. God will open up North Korea, when he does we will be astounded at what is rock, and what is river flowing in the caverns of the deep, so much mighty movement beneath statuesque strongholds. (For His mercy endures forever, and He hears the cries of the oppressed.)
Isaiah 9:2-7 (The Message) The Message The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who lived in a land of deep shadows— light! sunbursts of light! You repopulated the nation, you expanded its joy. Oh, they’re so glad in your presence! Festival joy! The joy of a great celebration, sharing rich gifts and warm greetings. The abuse of oppressors and cruelty of tyrants— all their whips and cudgels and curses— Is gone, done away with, a deliverance as surprising and sudden as Gideon’s old victory over Midian. The boots of all those invading troops, along with their shirts soaked with innocent blood, Will be piled in a heap and burned, a fire that will burn for days! For a child has been born—for us! the gift of a son—for us! He’ll take over the running of the world. His names will be: Amazing Counselor, Strong God, Eternal Father, Prince of Wholeness. His ruling authority will grow, and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness he brings. He’ll rule from the historic David throne over that promised kingdom. He’ll put that kingdom on a firm footing and keep it going With fair dealing and right living, beginning now and lasting always. The zeal of God-of-the-Angel-Armies will do all this.
Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
Anywhere you look in the new testament where witchcraft (a work of the flesh) is trying to embed itself in the church, or among those who are in leadership, or a move of God, you will see it dealt with forth right. No one is left to themselves to work it out. Especially, where deception is involved. The slave girl who had a spirit of divination (python) where the Apostle Paul commands it to come out, didn’t even get the benefit of counsel before he directly took authority over that spirit that sought to defile their work in Philippi.
I think Paul understood the backlash that would come when he dealt with something that controlled the city, and would rather have not “rattled the cage” to get some work done; but, at some point he recognized python’s operation, unchecked, would only serve “it” in the end, for the people would then think that the spirit of the slave girl, and the spirit of the apostle, and his works, were one. Paul did what needed to be done. For a while he suffered for it, but great power was awarded the move of God in that city for what he stood up to. Climaxing into an earthquake that shook loose chains of the imprisoned, and set them free. This is the end result for having a back bone, and standing up against a spirit that masks itself as “acceptable” to move and operate among us.
Taking authority over the spirit of divination (python) will restore the power and effectiveness of the Gospel over the regions it has control over, but brace yourself for the craziness that will unearth when exposed … See Acts 16. Speaking of turning a city upside down … Yet, worth the ride to see the mighty hand of God work mightily among us, in our fellowships, ministries, cities, and even in nations, that have been under such control. When python seeks to infiltrate a work (moving in like the snake that it is) there is nothing more that can be done but to face it head on. Python is not for the faint of heart. In fact, as you can see in Paul’s experience the accusations began to fly. Yet, greater is he (Christ) that is in us then he that is in this world! For it is written that no weapon formed against us shall prosper, every tongue that rises up in judgement shall be condemned or proven wrong. This is your inheritance IN Christ, so come what may, in the end, all will be well and our hands free of blood guilt for dutifully warning. God will restore His power where defeat, and powerlessness, has taken hold.
The Silent Killer
Python is a serpent, like any snake it is a silent killer that suddenly appears, and when it does we need to be instant in season and out, ready to take authority over its power. The ultimate assignment of Python is to squeeze, swallow and destroy. The most disturbing victim of python are new moves of the Spirit of God and new converts. Like all snakes serpents eat eggs, new beginnings are destroyed, when a spirit of python is at large, underdeveloped Christians, and callings are swallowed up, by the demon spirit python. The carnage of premature deaths are left in python’s wake, while the nest of new beginnings are plundered. The Church should be an un-penetrable nest where destinies develop. Another manifestation of Python is the squeezing out of spiritual life and suffocation of spiritual gifting; a rendering of powerlessness, and paralyses of ministry, and good works. Despair, disparagement, hopelessness, and spiritual darkness, envelope as python swallows its prey into increasing darkness; eventually, methodically, digesting the call, and purposes of God in his victims life. The Good news is that God often brings a rash of wake up calls to shake us awake, for He is always at work on our behalf desiring that no man should perish. A stern word is a blessing, a severe warning the same. What ever it takes. He is the author and finisher of our faith, if we are on the wrong path he will work on our behalf, it is not always a sunny day when God works, but it is always a bright and shining one.
When we as Christians (who are the temple of the Holy Ghost) open the ports of our eyes, ears, and sensual courses, to unholy, displays of darkness, drawing upon those things to entertain us, we invite demons to influence, and defile, the sacred altar of our heart. This is us releasing our free will over to spiritual darkness that begins to access what ever reach of authority one has to defile others. If that authority has access to the pulpit, to teach, preach, and lead worship- Python then begins to signal Leviathan the King of all the Sons of Pride to divide from the congregation the deliverers as the twisting spirit then promotes all that is vile and wicked. While the true move of the spirit is suffocated, and what was begun by God is taken over by a spirit of divination, drawing attention to itself, as it perpetuates its supernatural powers, with the stamp of christian approval; seemingly, saying all the right things, just as the damsel did in Paul’s time. The position and influence one has that is defiled by a spirit of divination opens the door to seduce and oppress those under them. To the depth we have walked in spiritual awareness, warfare, and gifting, so to that degree shall this defilement occupy and displace the anointing with a counter kind. In this condition what ever place or platform we have been given becomes devalued by the powers of a lesser being. To gain back taken ground, the spirit of python must be exposed and there is no other recourse but to face it at all cost. Can poison and good waters pour as one? No they cannot, they should not, but in the human vessel they can for a season, until the finger of God brings judgment to those vessels for mixing the holy with the unholy, and causing defilement in the midst of the people.
The Message (MSG)
“But why do you let that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet mislead my dear servants into Cross-denying, self-indulging religion? I gave her a chance to change her ways, but she has no intention of giving up a career in the god-business. I’m about to lay her low, along with her partners, as they play their sex-and-religion games. The bastard offspring of their idol-whoring I’ll kill. Then every church will know that appearances don’t impress me. I x-ray every motive and make sure you get what’s coming to you.
Entwined In Two Spiritual Streams.
We often think that witchcraft approaches us in black hats and green haze.Not so, would that it did, so many now would not be deceived! But, what the Church is dealing with now days is starting to look the ugly that it is. In contrast, the spirit of divination is deceptively presented by those who have willfully, or stupidly, defiled themselves with the occult, and have spoon fed it to the masses from Church pulpits and platforms. Eventually, what you will see at our alters (and all ready do even now) is not of God, but a form of palatable divination for one purpose, and that is to spread it undetected. Paul, in the 16th chapter of Acts became grieved in his spirit. Though the slave girl was proclaiming the truth, and publicly acknowledging God as the most high, yet she made her master money by soothsaying. Her life was intertwined in two spiritual streams.
We cannot serve two masters, bitter and sweet water should not come out of one vessel. Gazing into evil by being a follower of a television program, a series of movies, or books that glorifies the occult, and sexual immorality, and then turn around and participate in worship or prayer services in Church is “mixing” the occult with worship. It is a Baal Christianity! Baal – Hebrew meaning: One who swallows. Notice that when Jesus warned the 7 churches in revelation to repent he mentioned, Baalam, (he who swallows the people) and the teachings of the Nicolaitions (destroy or conquers the people) and the sexually immoral and promiscuous Jezebel (one who exalts Baal who is he who swallows). All these spirits work in our churches today, all of them tied into python, who is under Leviathan (the sea serpent) the twister among the masses- the king of all the sons of pride. Isaiah 27:1 the twisting spirit. Job 41:1-34 What do serpents do? They BITE, SQUEEZE, SWALLOW, and there by DESTROY their PREY. Jesus hates what these deceivers do to His Church and will destroy them, he will put out into utter darkness those who are their followers, and practitioners, and they will have their part in the lake of fire. Revelation 21:8
Revelation 22:15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
John 9:4 What to do? Whosoever, calls upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved!! Call upon him while he may be found. We must work in the day while it is daylight, for the night comes where no man can work.
Eventually, we will have to go to bed in the condition we are in as night falls around us, and we have allowed our candle to be replaced by a false light, dimming as darkness grows. Those who can work in the night are the ones who have the light in them.
Luke 11:34-35 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. In another place We will be known by our fruits, not every one that says Lord, Lord, enters into the kingdom of heaven, but those who do the will of my Father. Beloved, believe not every spirit …
NO greater love is this that a man lays his life down for his friends. At the point that we are willing to lose the love of our friends, and for that matter our family, to speak the truth to them in love, though the truth is not loved, and they choose to abandon us, it is in the hope that God’s word does not return void … but will continue to work on them that they will choose the way of life, and in it find their path steady, and may even pray for us, or help one day, when we fall down … isn’t it better to lose a friend for a moment, because we told them the truth, in order that we might gain a brother or sister for eternity?
Galatians 5:19-21 (NKJV) Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Hating Even the Garment SPOTTED by the flesh.
The scripture is very clear on what kind of activity warrants what kind of action, there are behaviors we ignore and let others work out their wrinkles and there are behaviors we approach with correction, somehow the church has let discipline go, and any correction is a shock to the system. People are so use to feel good everything, they can’t handle it. A mature leadership will know when more teaching is required, or when patience is needed, or when a shout of warning will save a life, or a yank on the shirt collar keeps them from a snake pit. Understanding that these are forms of mercy. Don not most of us respond appropriately, naturally, when warning some one of danger? How is it that a bit of truth now days is treated like it was an ax let loose on a doll house? I think we need to check how we feel when we hear the truth in warning, and measure it, not on how it was given, but how we have a problem receiving “hard sayings”. Asking ourselves why our reactions are the way they are. Perhaps what we differentiate between a tug and a beating (of the flames off our back) is dependent upon how much darkness we have allowed to envelop in our lives. Head lights in the drive way are not as harsh to the eyes, when standing in the sun. It takes more adjustment for our eyes, while standing in utter darkness. Often times it is not the message that is abrupt, but the condition it finds us in when we hear it, that’s affronted.
Acts 13:10 sorcery trying to undermine the work of the Holy Spirit.
Jude 1: 23 I love you enough, I will risk being burned.
Jude 1:4 grace of God turned into a license for immorality.
Revelation 22:14-15 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs,[unclean] those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
Prayer Journal Vision: Obama and Romney Debate
10/16/12 6:45 pm
I saw these two presidential candidates in their debate with
elongated heads. Both of them, I saw Obama watching this
train on its track. He knows, America is on a track, and it
will go where its headed to, nothing can stop it now.
America will continue on in what it is coming into.
Now this is where the
Church comes in, this is where we come in. In a moment I
was observing these two men, storm clouds boiling above
their heads, and they are real brainy, but in the next
scene I’m moving above, observing now the train, moving
with it as fast as it goes. I believe I am the Church at
this point and not necessarily myself. In fact it all
seems to go, like we change from a watcher to a
participator, with power. The train seems to begin to
change color just before the vision ends, this dark metal
train with dark paint- it started to look like it was
turning white coal, as if the speed in which it was going
fanned a furnace, it looked like the rail itself and the
embankment on each side … began to turn, at some point
it felt like, a transfiguration … those two men faded
in the back ground, they were not there any more,
something transpired, maybe the tracks shifted, but some
where down the line a transference of power took place
and Christ Church was all over it. The white coal, gold,
and fire- you couldn’t separate one from the other. It
Now I’m thinking about this- the kingdoms of this world
shall become the kingdoms of our God. Trains have
schedules, they have their stops, and transfers, from
here on out there are no stops, only momentum through
times, seasons, and seasons of change.
America will go through her refinement, it has to be,
but she has a destiny, a date, a “for this you were born”
moment in history, an Esther moment, preceded by
purifications and readiments, the Church will be that
Mordicai that teaches and counsels nations, their
destiny. Hamen will be cheated out of his plans and
plots, and that which was devised by him will become his
very own demise.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again, what has
been done will be done again; there is nothing new under
Ecclesiastes 2:12 Then I turned my thoughts to consider
wisdom, and also madness and folly. What more can the
king’s successor do than what has already been done?
Ecclesiastes 6:10 Whatever exists has already been named,
and what man is has been known; no man can contend with
one who is stronger than he.
