The Lens Of Prophet Intercessor

Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but found none.

It is absolutely impossible to be a real live prophet of God and not be an intercessor of people, governments, and nations. Not all intercessors occupy that office, but their giftings grow rich because of their selfless obedience as a member of God’s praying family. To them He reveals his will in the earth. The profile of an intercessor has been down graded as a past time for people who have time to pass. It is not an imageaccurate profile. An intercessor is any servant of God who MAKES time to pray. They will be listed in the Annals of Heaven as the unknowns, among the known great men and women of GOD. Because true servants achieve great things through a life devoted to prayer, skilled in spiritual warfare. From this place an EFFECTIVE Five Fold Ministry is called. For even the effective fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much, more so if that righteous man or woman is appointed and anointed by God in ministry, leading many. While some people achieve recognition for their gift of gab, and fast talking charisma, it is the anointing that breaks the yoke. A life of prayer that makes an impact.

The heart of Jehovah is always looking for someone to stand in the gap.

Abraham was a friend of God, someone who would stand in the gap. God knew this when he told Abraham that Sodom and Gomorrah would be destroyed. If you want to be favored, as a friend of God, become an intercessor he reveals those things close to His heart. His son the Lord Jesus Christ, ever intercedes for us. A friend of God cares what God cares about and stands with Him. Like friends do.

Genesis 18:16-33 New King James Version (NKJV)

Abraham Intercedes for Sodom

Then the men rose from there and looked toward Sodom, and Abraham went with them to send them on the way. And the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.” And the Lord said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know.” Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord. And Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” So the Lord said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.” Then Abraham answered and said, “Indeed now, I who am but dust and ashes have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose there were five less than the fifty righteous; would You destroy all of the city for lack of five?” So He said, “If I find there forty-five, I will not destroy it.” And he spoke to Him yet again and said, “Suppose there should be forty found there?” So He said, “I will not do it for the sake of forty.” Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Suppose thirty should be found there?” So He said, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.” And he said, “Indeed now, I have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose twenty should be found there?” So He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty.” Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: Suppose ten should be found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten.” So the Lord went His way as soon as He had finished speaking with Abraham; and Abraham returned to his place.

We see in this passage that intercession for the righteous delivered them from the Judgment reserved for the wicked. Sadly only Lot and his household were spared.

James 2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which said, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed to him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

Romans 8:26

Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

We are the temple of the Holy Ghost and the Body of Christ in the earth! Under a better covenant than Abraham and Moses. A cry for humanity goes up before the throne from the midst of His people night and day. (The Lord God in our midst is mighty.) His intercessors are that voice and heart’s cry for peoples, tongues, and nations. There are those appointed to be intercessors, and those so much after God’s own heart they become intercessors. To them He often gives dreams, visions, and prophetic insight to reveal prayer focus and strategy. Revealing His WORD over any given circumstance, to light the way. This is the quickest route to begin experiencing spiritual giftings. God equips HIS saints with what they need to do His work. He will not hold back in this spiritual work of intercession. Prophetic words, dreams, visions, and discernment of spirits, bring heavy artillery into the battle field.

The Worshipping Intercessor

They that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. An intercessor is most likely the first to enter into abandoned worship, and the last to file out of a corporate visit into the throne room of heaven. The shiny faced one in the crowd is most likely God’s intercessor. The weeping intercessor is often approached by people thinking they need prayer, when in fact they have just been praying for people. The weeping prophet is that prophet of continual intercession. An intercessor can testify of a loss of the sense of time, while laboring in travailing prayer. This is how a few minutes of prayer can run into hours for many veteran intercessors.

A faithful steward of dreams, visions, and prophecy, is an active intercessor. Because they understand them as tools to achieve God’s desired out come. By warning, by revelation, by declaration. While supernatural giftings is common for seasoned intercessors; for curious carnal minded on lookers, a peak in God’s war room may feel like an alien invasion. Not unlike Joshua’s supernatural fight of Jericho, from the Jerichoan’s point of view! Spiritual warfare is strategic, our God is a warrior. The captain of the Host Of Heaven. What a sight it must have been to see this curious army of the children of Israel surrounding a walled city. Spiritual warfare can produce a whole lot of noise, a lot of worship, a lot of shouting; a lot of dance, and marching, and a whole lot of walls coming down! But the scariest phenomenon of them all! A supernatural Hush Of God! I’ve seen a war room of prayer warriors stand under a heavy anointing for as much as an hour in this Holy silence. The waiting in silence is a time of heavenly downloads of supernatural strength. A body of believers perfected in yielding, in one mind and one accord, to the Spirit of Christ like this, is on their way to manifesting God’s supernatural army on earth.

The scripture says, they that wait upon the Lord shall mount up as Eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

Bear ye one another’s burden and so fulfill the law of Christ.

An original born of God burden bearer, bears the burden of the Lord. But remember Jesus said, MY YOKE is not heavy, MY BURDEN is light. The first thing a burden bearer or intercessor needs to learn is to not internalize anguish of soul. While we have a burden for the lost, prayer rolls that burden off, and vaporizes it into a heavenly offering before the throne of God, prayer should lift the burden. This is another reason that Philippians 4:6-7 should be practiced as often as we feel over whelmed, or over burdened. Under that heaviness the enemy can get a foothold, and this is not the will of God. We can (of our own free will) bear up burdens of others in prayer. But no one should pray burdens to be laid on a known intercessor. Let the Father handle that.

Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

I wanted to write about the ministry of intercession in the light of visions, dreams, and prophecy- so people can understand more about God’s gifting in intercessory prayer. The gift we are equipped with and the office we occupy are the lens we approach intercessory prayer with. That is how several people coming together and praying for one focus point will see or sense different facets of prayer need. This is why we can’t hurry through points of prayer, corporately, before the offices and giftings among us are released from their burden. Whether this is corporate ministry or intercession. It is wise to have representatives from each office to lay out their petition for the matter. Letting the saints pray over it in the Spirit and with their understanding also. This way the Fivefold ministry is activated during intercession,  pulling down strongholds and making away for the full council of God to come in any given matter. When God chose Abraham to intercede over Sodom, He chose one who would become a Father of Nations. His intercession wasn’t just for Lot’s survival, it wasn’t just for his relatives, but all righteous peoples with in that city. Abraham and Sarah were known for their hospitality, they loved people. This is another reason God chose Abraham to tell of His plans to destroy these two wicked cities. He knew Abraham would be moved for the humanity with in them. Any Apostle or Prophet that thinks INTERCESSORY pray is for little old ladies and not for them, hasn’t understood Abraham’s friendship with God, and is not of any rank according to the super prophet Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 27:18 If they are prophets, and if the word of the LORD is with them, then let them intercede with the LORD of hosts.

Isaiah 62:6-7
I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who will never hold their peace day or night; you who [are His servants and by your prayers] put the Lord in remembrance [of His promises], keep not silence …

Ephesians 6:18
Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).

1 Timothy 2:1
First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men.

In 1992 I had the privilege of seeing a move of God at its point of ignition. What I observed has always stayed with me. For many years we were praying for a break through in a region of the North West. An aging evangelist came to our town. Well known for sparking revivals. I saw Him work, and God showed me a key in action. This man understood intercession, and he understood its power. His first few meetings were dedicated to teaching Holy Spirit filled INTERCESSORY prayer, and he revived that prayer ministry, during his meetings. He set up prayer among the people, attending  the revival meetings, and called upon the whole congregation to lift their voice to God after the first and second night. He also refused to settle for timid prayers. He wasn’t happy until prayer roared out of that sanctuary on behalf of the city, people slumped at the altar wailing for souls. He didn’t shut it down like so many do. Prayer went into the night, even as intercessors disbanded, and regrouped in their homes. God had this man revive prayer first. And I mean real prayer. *Travailing prayer. The evangelist extended his meetings. 800 hundred souls were saved in this mid size city. And prayer was revived. Long story short by 1996 this town was listed in the top ten best cities to live in. And many years after, well into the new millennium. A slumping economy was now booming. 100,000 people who left in the 1980’s looking for work and better lives, had either come back or were replaced by others looking for work, and a better life, in a growing economy.  The metropolitan area tripled in size after 10 years. Several struggling Spirit filled churches began to grow in leaps and bounds. Eagles, and I mean prophetic ones, began to land in these spirit filled churches immediately after this evangelistic over throw. Restoring the office of the Apostles and Prophets to facilitate the growth to come. One of those Apostles began a prayer house ministry in Washington DC.,  The key to everything is prayer. The key to great accomplishments in the kingdom of God is to be that one who will stand in the gap. Being a friend of God.

Ezekiel 22:30 I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it …

*As giving birth. The travails of laboring with child.

State Of Exposure

From the original podcast: The Power of Exposure /by Deana Barnes 1/5/2017

I’ve put it into your hands says the Lord, I’ve laid into the hands of the saints, this nation, in a time of great exposure, your prayers have turned the tide, even the ebb and flow of destruction, bent on re defining the shores and borders of your very existence. What the enemy has had in his imagination to do to you has been snatched out from his hand, for this time and season of RETURNING, says the Lord. But you my people must continue to speak to that hidden power that has begun to make many tremble as if it is a mountain rising, simply command it,

“Be thou removed and cast into the sea! Send it to the abyss for from the abyss false imaginations rise, your response is either of faith or of fear, test the spirits speak my word, in doing so you disqualify the power of lying signs and wonders .”

The Lord showed me upon that foundation laid, upon and over Holy Intent, has there been a net working, of roots, and snags, of holes and passage ways- of rats and moles, of rodents that burrow beneath. Unlike the foundation laid in stone, or the words etched in marble – this that has exalted itself against the knowledge and wisdom of God shall witness a deluge of disclosures still to come. What is set and drawn from the stone the builders have rejected, but has indeed become the cornerstone, is aligned with that which cannot be moved.

In prayer for the region of Washington DC.- January 4, 20017; the lord showed me a great granite mountain rip beneath the ground and upward, and the Lord said this is the power of the prayer of the saints. When this happened I saw those under ground systems get ripped up by it, I heard the sound of snapping roots, and saw cables hanging out in the open that looked like computer cables and wiring along with other old rooted systems being exposed. I also saw what was left of the passage ways and pay ways of mole and rat trails beneath Washington DC. The Lord said, keep speaking, commanding, rooting out in the power of my name, for the word for America is EXPOSURE. ALL WILL BE EXPOSED.

The intense power of exposure will spill out into every aspect of American lives. It will seem messy, it will at times, feel like chaos. Christians will wonder, and say out loud, what were we thinking’ what have we done? Weak leadership will cave and publicly renounce the former stance they took up during a time when it was popular to make statements they made. Men and women of great influence of all walks of life, beginning in the house of God, will tremble in their beds waking up to exposures wrought through the night.

The more they have hidden as if thinking that I am not a God that sees, the greater the spirit of trembling shall come upon them.”

I see this in the true church not to destroy them but to cleanse them from a culture of disingenuous practices towards men women and children, of Church and State of politics, and religion, wayward sons and daughter will be called back to their Godly roots during this time. Astonishingly there will be flip flopping in the congress and senate, born out of the shear mercy of God to right the wayward heart in its destructive path. I see a fainting judge. Fainting under the stress of the power of conviction burning in the heart, once again God is calling many by name for the faithful prayers of those who loved him, served him, and trusted their children’s children into His care by his promise to show kindness down to a thousand generations. A dormant branch eyed by the pruner budding in the nick of time, God is doing this.

The obstinate will slip away into the night to resurface in their appointed time reserved for judgment. All will be shaken. The spirit of trembling shall fall upon this land for exposure will even expose destroyers posed against her. Causing an awakening to the reality of the perilous times our world is in. Yet, my people who have begun a good work, who have pledged to see it through, shall make great strides in cleansing this land from the abomination of falsehoods, lying, and idolatry. Done so by the power of their words in the authority of my name.

The foundation of Holy Intent preserves my plans for America, says the Lord.

For she has a destiny, yet unfolded, a purpose yet unrealized. My promise unto the faithful who have loved me to a thousand generations … coddles their posterity into the palm of my hand, I am their refuge and strength, I correct them, I wound them, I will not forget to heal them, says God. They who call upon me are mine and their children are under the power of my protective gaze that sees them among all nations, there is nothing hidden from the Father of Lights. Though these times be tumultuous and unnerving know the waters must rise to the ankles in order to wash out what is burrowed beneath. This also is that work of exposure in the land. Though wading through that which has been revealed is unpleasant, unpopular, and disconcerting- time will abate shame filled waters, and a fresh day spring emerge.

Eagle Nation, Down

Pray-

Through prophetic dreams that I was given in 2008 and 2012 the Lord revealed to me that Obama would win both elections, and they outlined certain events that would occur in the proceeding four years. I saw there would be a Clinton in Obama’s administration, and  that the gay agenda would be pushed from a juvenile stage into the “coming of age” stage, where homosexuality would enter into its “reproductive years”.  I’ve recorded most of those dreams on my blog at NWP. They were picked up and posted by other websites. One last event, yet to occur, in the president’s second term would happen after Obama’s encounters with Cuba. I record it in an article called STRANGE BIRD II. The mention of Cuba is explained in the article “ENTER CUBA”. In that dream the Eagle Nation would transform into the OBAMA Nation, and Syria was going to bleed out like fiery water colors all over the map of the Middle East, which is an event that continues to happen even now.

The Prophetic Dream Strange Bird II

Towards the end of  Strange Bird II, Obama had some kind of interaction with Cuba, and then right after that (in the last leg of his presidency) he trots over to the middle of the Middle East. I then saw Obama standing on the downward slope of a hill towards the bottom, the hill itself seemed to represent a time line that depicted his 2nd term. Obama stood there silhouetted against the fire storm that was blown out from Syria. Suddenly, I looked again and the Obama figure was lying flat on his back. He was not moving, and I could not understand why he was not getting up. No one went out to help him. President Obama, was now flat on his back, and not moving in what looked like East of Medina. But certainly, he was in the middle of the Middle East. This could represent the following-

  1. Obama has no more power or influence to negotiate, at this point in his presidency.
  2. The eagle nation’s foreign policy is dead in the water. No one assists.
  3. A Catastrophic military failure. With no immediate assistance. God forbid.
  4. The president, himself, suffers a serious security breach. Delayed assistance. God forbid.
  5. A military effort that fails, and alies don’t help.
  6. An economic collapse, Obama Nation Down.

During his time with Cuba, he was wearing military clothes like Castro and Gahdaffi in their early years. When he ran into the middle of the Middle East in the last months of his presidency the Obama figure was wearing a green hat like Gahdaffi’s red barrette, and green clothes like Castro’s military clothes. Because President Obama literally went to Cuba, and now is heading to Saudia Arabia, April 21, 2016 it may be a literal translation of the dream. I am very concerned about this part of the dream, because it felt like that was what the whole thing was culminating into.

Having had prophetic dreams before, that depicted a series of events that came to pass, systematically, as if  to  posture intercessors for the one event it ended with. My prayer is this article will prompt intercessors to continue to pray for America, and right now this is critical.

Once, the Lord gave me a warning of a series of events that took place where the last thing to occur would have been devestating. The dream started out with flooding water, followed by a fire, and a small child briefly lost. The last event in the dream was a relative’s fall from a ladder onto a concrete driveway, that caused a brain injury or death. These things began to happen in rapid succession, before I woke up to the fact that the last event in the dream was the only thing left yet to occur.

I began to pray and intercede over this ladder accident. The  following weekend we were sitting in the yard of that same relative, when he came around to the front of the house, on the concrete drive way with a ladder, to my amazement! He began to set it up on the roof to clean the chimney. The same relative that fell off a ladder and suffered a head injury, in my dream. Immediately, I ran up and asked if he could move the ladder to the grass area. I then held the ladder as he came up and down from the roof. On the third run from the top his foot slipped through, but, I was holding the ladder. This was 30 years ago. Dreams depicting tragedy are not for prophets to foretell the future, they are to be prayed over, and to be submitted as warnings, to do what we can to avoid them.

Job 33:14-17  For God speaks once, yes twice, yet man perceives it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction that he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from him. He keeps back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

The Last Leg Of Obama’s Presidency

At first, early in his second term I thought all this depicted America suffering an economic crash in 2015, while being involved with the ISIS Syria conflict. However, if I had studied the time line I was given it actually was pointing to the hour we are living in now. My prayer is that what I saw is not depicting the Obama Nation in the form of troops. I do not believe God shows us these things to be a notch in some prophet’s belt of predictions. But, as the Lord revealed to Abraham what he was about to do with Sodom and Gomorrah, provoking him to intercession, so I pray what I’m sharing is provocative to intercessors, to continue to ramp up in prayer.

I believe the people of God have delayed, and intercepted many sorrows by the Spirit of God, through intercessions. That the enemy is being exposed, in our land, and many are being awakened to the level of deception that is in our government, and in our media. Causing more and more people riding the fence, to see the contrasting lines between light and darkness. Jesus Christ is returning as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. But will He find faith when He comes?  The Church can change the tide. Let us be praying about all our dealings in the Middle East, our lives and national security depends on it.

Trust The Gift

Trust The Gift
Deana Barnes

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.

imageI 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.

Trust The Gift Free Style

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.

Dogwood Spring

NeWine Pouring’s Dream Journal Posting 2/7/2013

As Far West as the Mississippi, East to the Coast, North to Maine, and South Florida. Not a Long Winter, but an extended, wet, and chilly Spring.

June 2011 141 - Copy - CopyFor those of you who are waiting upon the Lord, and really feeling the ” Winter Season” I heard this in prayer today. Of course, in the natural it may depend upon where you are living, what kind of spring you are going to have. But, spiritually speaking the cold night is passing sooner than you think. So rest in this time, this pre-dawn like hour, in the glow of expectation, before the sun awakens the earth, while the birds begin their singing. This is the hour of listening, before the roar of the day. As there will be grace to do so. I saw a prophetic picture of leaf buds, and dew, a damp path, in the woods. A stroll in the woods, and in it was a clear path. No tangled branches, or fallen trees. Seemingly, a young forest, renewed. Yes, a little rainy, yes a little chilly; but, lined flannel weather. vividly, I saw the Dog Wood tree in “new bud” form. This is the call of the Spirit. “Walk with me.” I felt the cool wetness of a tender twig brush across the apple of my cheek in this early morning walk. The sound of a brook that could not be seen. I heard him say, again, “Walk with me”. What is the meaning of this extended spring? The former rains of this new season. Why longer than others? Why will time seemingly stand still in the pre-dawn of the days we are facing? Shall the noon day sun be more extreme? Perhaps. Drench the ground, store the dew, the earth will help the earth, as the Holy Spirit will refresh, where He inhabits, as well. An extended grace, an extended (early) spring, in the hour of listening. Tarry there before you move into the “heat of the day”, and you shall be “hydrated” to stand.

Campaigns To Retrieve the Lost and Stolen from: The Bud is Yet in the Vine

Now is the time to pull all stolen resources out of the camp of the enemy. Calling them out in the name of Yeshuah. (The God who saves) Just as David and his men went after their family and wives who were stolen from them while they were out to war, so there are those in the body of Christ, who have been out doing the Lord’s work and have come back only to find their home pillaged by the enemy. The weakest link in the family/body being zeroed in on to penetrate walls of defense, to get in and raise havoc.

You may not see how it was persecution, but I assure you that for many, that is exactly what it is. You did nothing wrong. A weakness that had nothing to do with you was exploited to the hilt, not because of your wrong, but because of what you were doing right.

Yes, some of us make messy beds we have to sleep in and God is merciful, but this I am talking about is something that would not have been exploited like it was had it not been for WHO YOU ARE. You will need all that the enemy has taken from you back, for the days ahead. And it is there for you to retrieve, if you will believe. This translates into that which has been stolen from our homes, finances, and families, our church families, and even God’s people through out all nations, for those who are believing for the lost on that level. Pent up justice, and that thing stolen- from those who have been faithful, is held up for that day of exchange that God has assigned, in a time when it will be needed most. The riches of the wicked, and illegally obtained wealth, is laid up for the just. You have been waiting to long. Now is the time for you to mount up for battle, and demand the thief to restore all that has been stolen- with interest!

Our Own Experience
A few months ago we did just that, we began a prayer vigil, and stand; demanding what has been stolen to be returned. After a few days of prayer we had a break through. The lord gave me a vision. I saw my self walking through a battle field, nothing was left but abandoned tanks, and burning debris, the earth was scorched. I then came upon an abandoned camp, up next to a mountain. There was nothing left in the camp but smoking debris and broken equipment. I felt that what was stolen in the camp had been retrieved, but my eyes fixed on clefts in the rocks of a mountain side, next to the camp.

I walked over and began to search into the clefts and ravines. As I did I began to see souls coming up from between the rocks, they were missed when the campaign to retrieve the stolen, had previously gone through. I Saw Parcels and a U-Haul Bringing Back the Lost and Stolen.

I have had the lost, and stolen restored before, but this was something else. Much more was at stake than what we could possibly have known. When we obeyed God and began this campaign, we saw the Lord work a mighty work. I saw in the spirit a U-Haul truck full of goods. The Lord said, “In a few days there will be three parcels coming in, little things as a down payment, but behind that is a haul. Keep standing, believing, and praying.” A few days after that my camera that had been lost for a year was retrieved. A couple of parcels came in the mail, items left behind from traveling, another parcel was a financial blessing that restored an unjust loss; as He has promised these three parcels came in as a marker for more to come …

To Go the Extra Mile, To Wait Upon the Lord For One More Hour …

It was there the Lord reminded me of something that happened many years ago. We suffered the loss of a fledgling work of the Lord where people were getting saved, healed, and delivered, and this loss came through betrayal. I began to include that situation in our prayers for the recovery of the lost and stolen.

A few days later came the haul. The lives and souls of precious human beings. I can testify that our prayers for the return of that which has been stolen has measured out in souls. Even a new mission presented itself in subsequent days from this focused prayer for the stolen to be returned. God is an awesome warrior who retrieves the lost at every cost, for He has done that, even to the shedding of his own blood at Calvary, for the remission of sins.

What the thief has stolen shall be restored. Many of us in ministry have been interrupted, or intruded upon by the enemy, the cost has been souls, and I shudder for those who have involved themselves in treachery in the midst of God’s work. But in Christ’s kingdom nothing shall be lost, none of His shall be forgotten. He will go the extra mile as the good shepherd always does, not satisfied that He has secured the 99, he continues searching for that one missing.

What we do in the kingdom of God must be done with intent. Make the decision to try again, go back one more time, take one more search party, lead one more campaign in the spirit. Didn’t Jesus say, “Could you not tarry one more hour?” Could we not go back one more time, try once again, and this time believe for all that was stolen to be restored? Ultimately, that is summed up in souls of lost men and women, and hurting boys and girls.

Many times finances hinder the work of God, yet, He promises us that He gives to us all things pertaining to life and Godliness, those things are available to us to fulfill God’s purposes in the earth. If finances are not coming through, it is not because of what God will not do, or what He has not provided. It is because of what the enemy has done. I don’t understand asking God for prosperity, I do understand telling hell to get off of what God has already given us, to serve Him with.

We must take our authority and exact from the kingdom of darkness those things stolen away and hidden in it. God wants us to take back wealth, time, health, strength, all for souls, all to advance His kingdom. He said, ” I have given you power to tread … The kingdom of God suffers violence, but the violent take it by force.

And how is this done? Didn’t Jesus say, the words that I speak to you are spirit and they are truth? That we war not against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness in high places? Are we not to command the night to bow to the day, with a two edged sword in our hand, and the High praises of God in our mouths? Speak as Moses spoke to the spiritual Pharaohs of the land and say, God has said, “Let my people go?” Our part should not be left undone for He has said, “Go into all the world … these signs shall follow them that believe in my name …” it is up to us to take possession of every realm and dominion, for He has given it to us.

The bud is yet in the vine.
