The Turnaround: Part 2

Yesterday I shared a word that the Lord released last year on October 5, 2017, regarding His heart towards America and the current climate of the nation. You can find it here: The Turnaround: Part 1. With Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the newly appointed replacement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy taking his seat of power in the Supreme Court, much change is to come in the high courts of America. With the wave that is coming, it will usher in a turning of the tide of the nation. This move was prophesied by the Lord when He released these words while in prayer some 9 months ago.

Today, I will be sharing the second word that the Lord spoke to me on October 10, 2017, when He blasted my heart with His cry for the destiny of America. I will be raw and admit and confess that when He released these words, I was in the early stages of stepping into a new calling in the prophetic, prophesying to the nations. I had just begun seeking Him more pointedly for divine revelation into His heart for the nations and the occurrences taking place in the world in September. He had put it on my heart to start a journal specifically dedicated to prayers and prophecies for the nations and promised that He would bring revelation as I sought His heart out, just like in Proverbs 25:2, God conceals the revelation of His Word in the hiding place of His glory. But the honor of kings is revealed by how they thoroughly search out the deeper meaning of all that God says.” (TPT)

In my confession, I admit that as I began receiving these revelations, I feared sharing them. I have delivered plenty of prophetic words to individuals and large groups of people before. But the mere idea of sharing a word for the whole of a nation seemed a daunting task with only fearful questions resulting, “what if it doesn’t come to pass? What if I get it wrong, Lord? Then immediately I will be discredited in whatever I say and be labeled as a false prophet.” He had encouraged me to begin to watch, observe, and learn from biblical, past, and current prophets within the Global Body of Christ; to learn the different waves of prophecy, how it is revealed and imparted to the nations, and how He always brings to complete fruition the Word that He casts forth (Isaiah 55:11,So will My Word be which goes out of My mouth; it will not return to Me void (useless, without result), without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.”)

My other fearful concern was that I had missed my opportunity for sharing the word if I had not spoken it exactly when it was received. But the Lord redirected that fear to face Scripture. In reading the book of Daniel, as the Lord released prophetic revelation to him, there were specific times where He told Daniel it was not time to release the Word of the Lord, and in due time and in the proper season, He confirmed its releasing.

As I was dealing with all of these fears, the Lord was addressing each one of them with His Truth, bringing me to a boldness and level of obedience to share whatever He speaks, when He reveals the proper time.

Azusa Now gathering in April 2016

Thousands of people say, “Yes!”, to the call of God at the Azusa Now gathering in April 2016 for the salvation of America.

So without further ado, I give you the divine Truth released on October 10th for America:

Fire like a light burning bright in the darkest of spaces is the kind of fire that I pour out. No amount of darkness can possibly overshadow it. The Light just shines even brighter. Darkness cannot extinguish it. Its only option is to flee. I have heard the cries of My Burning Ones united together in seeking My face and I am TURNING THE TIDE of this day from a day of evil and death to a day of REDEMPTION.

Like Abraham’s intercession spared Lot and the few, so has the intercession of My Chosen Ones met My ears and I am responding. In the miraculous will I move. This generation will no longer be a godless, fatherless generation. I have heard the cries and seen the desperation in the hearts of many. Every idol erected out of the depravity of man, every evil action sown out of the evil in man’s heart is being destroyed. I am coming in with mercy because I hate sin and murder. I so desire a covenant relationship with My Creation. Because of the petitions of My bold and brave ones that have given of themselves, I am honoring their sacrifice.

There will be justice for the shedding of innocent blood. Salvation is on the rise! A swift move will come forth with the removal from power those who reject My will. In their place, I will erect those who will humbly stand up for righteousness and for what is good. No longer will I allow corruption to run amok in this nation for the fruit of surrender is forgiveness and healing. True justice will be served where it is due and the hearts of man will come under the revelation of the knowledge of Jesus as King.

Surely, a nation will change as this becomes a reality. I Am Lord over it all! I have placed a leader in position ready to humble himself before Me to unite and receive godly counsel. All the devils in hell have arisen against his election for fear of My Son removing their hand of influence and power. Indeed, this will all take place. All of this because My children have had enough and have taken a stand against this present evil.

See, a new dawn is on the rise!

Isaiah 59 (NLT)

Isaiah 60 (NLT)

“Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces; now He will heal us.
He has injured us; now He will bandage our wounds. In just a short time He will restore us, so that we may live in His presence.” 
Hosea 6:1, 2 (NLT)

“So let us know and become personally acquainted with Him; let us press on to know and understand fully the [greatness of the] Lord [to honor, heed, and deeply cherish Him]. His appearing is prepared and is as certain as the dawn, and He will come to us [in salvation] like the [heavy] rain, like the spring rain watering the earth.”
Hosea 6:3 (AMP)

Let us continue to pursue the Word of the Lord for America and all of the nations of the world. As we press in we will begin to see come to fruition the truths spoken in the secret place as they are declared from the mountaintop!

One last encouragement from yours truly, never let fear intimidate you out of your calling. I literally ran from and denied being a prophet of Truth but my calling outran me and I had to come face to face with the reality that God wanted to use me to transform nations. The destiny of God for your life will always be unatainable and infinitely and eternally greater than you. It is God’s unique design that through His divine partnership, we will shake the world and turn it right-side up…and in it all, in our weakness and humble obedience, He gets all the glory…every time. And I wouldn’t want it any other way.

The Turnaround: Part 1

 

 

March for Life in front of Supreme Court on January 27, 2017

Last week on July 4, 2018, I shared a word on Facebook that the Lord spoke to me in October of last year. On June 27, news broke that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy would be retiring, leaving a position open for President Trump to fill. This is and has been a very important time for the future of the nation of America. Justice Kennedy sure made his impact on America by being the swing vote in the infancy stages of the abortion agenda amid the high courts and he helped pen some of the early legislation in favor of abortion some 30 years ago. One pivotal reason that things could drastically shift for America is with the correct placement of replacements for not only Justice Kennedy, but I believe others that will follow as the Lord sifts the governing bodies of this nation.

As we have seen, two nights ago, President Trump announced his choice for the replacement of Justice Kennedy: conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh. We pray that the Lord will use his appointment as a strategic voice among those surrounding him to bring about the full will of the Lord for the nation of America. This is especially significant in heading towards overthrowing Roe v. Wade once and for all.

Today, I will share the first word that the Lord released to me on October 5, 2017, regarding what His heart is for America and of what His plans are in the days to come. Within a 5 day period, He released divine prophetic revelation in two separate words pertaining to a whole realm of changes that are to come; as well as a charge to the Ekklesia to ‘Rise up and Risk it all’ for the sake of the Gospel and God’s Kingdom to be established here in America.

On October 5, 2017, the Lord spoke a very important word that is THE TURNAROUND for America:

Never again will I allow My children to experience the pain and atrocity of the forceful ending of their lives. The enemy has come so long ago to snub out the destinies of so many who never got to breathe the BREATH OF LIFE. Each one of these- a precious child I died to save.

And as My tears soak the blood-stained ground of the graves of every single one that I fashioned and knit together perfectly, I am bringing an ending to the appalling ending of life in the name of liberty’s sake. It has never been about freedom, but of fear and selfishness. So many made rash decisions, making excuses through the deception of the enemy. The enemy of your souls only goal is to kill, steal, and annihilate- and that is what has been taking place at appalling and heartbreaking rates.

Rise up, oh, those who will risk everything to seek My face for a TURNING OF THE TIDE! The liberal agenda has no weight on Me! I am powerful and victorious over it all! I am strong enough to save!

Pray for the selfishness of man to cease and bow to Me. Pray for justice to come like a mighty wave and to wash away the murder of innocents. STAND WITH ME AND FIGHT!!!

“But you are to be a king who speaks up on behalf of the disenfranchised and pleads for the legal rights of the defenseless and those who are dying. Be a righteous king, judging on behalf of the poor and interceding for those most in need.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:8-9‬ ‭(TPT)‬‬

“Therefore, I will judge each of you, O people of Israel, according to your actions, says the Sovereign Lord. Repent, and turn from your sins. Don’t let them destroy you! Put all your rebellion behind you, and find yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O people of Israel? I don’t want you to die, says the Sovereign Lord. Turn back and live!”
‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭18:30-32‬ ‭(NLT‬‬)

In the days ahead, we as the Body of Christ must rise up and rise above the status quo of Christianity. The excuse of choosing to ‘stay out of politics’ will not cut it anymore and never really has with the Lord. We were created to not only govern but to rule and reign alongside the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. “To stand by and do nothing out of self-preservation is to be dead already.” In doing so, we are handing our nation over to the destroyer on a silver platter. This was never about choosing political sides…there has only been two sides of this war of life…the Kingdom of God or hell. We have the unique ability to partner with the One Who has the power to turn it all around and change the course of America, and all of the nations of the world! Abortion WILL come to an end! The eternal government rests upon His shoulders and His government is increasing without end! HE IS LIFE. EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM GIVES LIFE.

Who will join me in intercession and the turning of the tide for America to become great again, with Jesus at the center? Who will stand in the gap and fight for the divine turnaround of the shedding of innocent blood, towards the release of justice? Maybe, just maybe this is the time for which we were created…maybe, just maybe this paradigm shift would push America over the edge unto the releasing of the Third Great Awakening across America as God’s blessing is restored unto her when she stands for LIFE.

Be on the lookout in the next day or two where I will post the second word that the Lord released, The Turnaround: Part 2.

It’s Not Over Yet

Word of the Lord for America- December 8, 2017

There is much in store for this country. You will see a new wave yet. There is much to come for My hand has not lifted completely nor have I turned My face from My children. I am one of compassion and am slow to anger, abounding in love. 

America, your days are not over yet. It is time to stop rejecting My hand of redemption at work in you. I am indeed in control and am using the ones I put in place to turn the tide of evil and destruction. Yes, you may not see it or want to, but I have established My hand where it is most effective to bring a shifting. I know what I am doing. More than any man ever could. 

I am doing a new thing and it will look different than anything that preceded it. Do not resist it like a stubborn child refusing the choice meat I put before you and instead choosing to live off of the meager rations of leftovers. There is much to be done still and much change to come. The enemy is being conquered and overthrown and I am bringing forth a new face. Look and see it coming forth even now. 

Isaiah 48:1-11 

“Listen to me, O family of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel and born into the family of Judah. Listen, you who take oaths in the name of the Lord and call on the God of Israel. You don’t keep your promises, even though you call yourself the holy city and talk about depending on the God of Israel, whose name is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.

Long ago I told you what was going to happen. Then suddenly I took action, and all My predictions came true. For I know how stubborn and obstinate you are. Your necks are as unbending as iron. Your heads are as hard as bronze. That is why I told you what would happen; I told you beforehand what I was going to do. Then you could never say, ‘My idols did it. My wooden image and metal god commanded it to happen!’ 

You have heard My predictions and seen them fulfilled, but you refuse to admit it. Now I will tell you new things, secrets you have not yet heard. They are brand new, not things from the past. So you cannot say, ‘We knew that all the time!’ “Yes, I will tell you of things that are entirely new, things you never heard of before. For I know so well what traitors you are. You have been rebels from birth. Yet for My own sake and for the honor of My name, I will hold back My anger and not wipe you out. I have refined you, but not as silver is refined. Rather, I have refined you in the furnace of suffering. I will rescue you for My sake— yes, for My own sake! I will not let My reputation be tarnished, and I will not share My glory with idols!”

From Fire to Fertility

Massive wildfire in Los Angeles on September 1, 2017

While in prayer over the raging and destructive fires rampaging indiscriminately through the northwest region of the United States, the Lord released a transforming word that has the power to change the tide of the nation.

Only I can silence and calm the raging flames of uncontrollability. The drought of My Presence will soon be no more. For too long the enemy has opposed My Truth by invading the hearts of many. He has sent death and destruction to the land in hopes of bringing unbelief and rage into the hearts of man in a fresh wave. But soon I will silence the lying deceiver and remove the blanket of liberal lies and replace it with a blanket- yes, a covering- of a truth as refreshing as a dew of the morn. It with My Spirit will drench the altars of deception and false gods to silence the lying tongue in the ears of those in influential places and put them in their place.

As a sign of this, there will be a great shifting in the heavens as a great shifting takes place in the natural. The demonic influences will be exposed for what they truly are and My Son will crush them under the feet of My righteous remnants. A supernatural wave will rise up to sweep away the darkness and bring on a wave of My Spirit in a spirit of freedom.

Where there seemed to be an absence of My Spirit, I will march in like a Mighty Warrior and take back the influential vision.

Yes, the enemy of destruction has been defeated. For the fire was meant for destruction and decimation but I reign over My creation. Even in the midst of destruction, I am moving to make Ready Ground. Fire burns up all of the impurities and thorns that have long choked out the life. When removed, its charred remnants actually serve as an aid to increase fertility in the soil. New life is able to spring forth greater than before; ushering in foreign inhabitants, giving them food and abundant lodging.

Ready Ground attracts the unusual rain of outpouring and revival.”

ISAIAH‬ ‭55:10-13‬ ‭AMP‬‬

““For as the rain and snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without watering the earth, making it bear and sprout, and providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so will My word be which goes out of My mouth; it will not return to Me void (useless, without result), without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. “For you will go out [from exile] with joy and be led forth [by the LORD Himself] with peace; the mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. “Instead of the thorn bush the cypress tree will grow, and instead of the nettle the myrtle tree will grow; and it will be a memorial to the LORD, for an everlasting sign [of His mercy] which will not be cut off.””

The Gift of Giving

Giving.

Giving.

It has been more than three weeks since we have posted and much longer since I personally have posted.  Many people have probably ceased reading these posts since we are no longer traveling from country to country doing the Lord’s work as He opens the doors.  Before I begin talking about giving, I want to first reflect on who really needs Jesus?  Does the poor Cambodian girl living in the trash dump need Jesus more than the middle class American business man that spends more time working than with his family so he can get provide for them the necessities and all the extras (cars, boats, bigger houses, better clothes…)?

This time of the year, it seems that we are consumed with the extras, the things we do not really need.  Black Friday is a tribute to this focus with too many people fighting over saving some money on the things that are not really needed.  People die so that somebody’s son, daughter, brother, sister can get the extra they wanted but did not really need.  Now, a few days after Christmas, no one is really happier and the extras are on the floor.  Many people are ready to get away from their families because they are annoyed and have frustrations with them.  Soon, they will return home and 90% of these extras will sit on a shelf, in a drawer, or in storage gathering dust.  Who really needs Jesus more?  We Americans who have it all and the extras or the those who have nothing but will give you whatever they have willingly?

Black Friday madness.

Black Friday madness.

As I was reading this week, it is interesting that God had me reading in 2 Corinthians chapters 8-9 the day after Christmas.  These two chapters are talking all about giving, and I encourage you to read and meditate on them.  Here, Paul speaks about a church that promised to give beyond their ability out of a generous heart.  He describes this gift as the fellowship of ministering to the saints.  He then goes on to say that even as they abound in important things (faith, knowledge, love), they should increase in the grace of giving just the same.  Is the act of increasing in knowledge, faith, and love more important than increasing in giving???

In Vs. 15 of chapter 8, Paul uses a verse that was originally used about manna in Exodus to talk about giving.  “He who gathered much had nothing left over, and he who gathered little had no lack.”  As I was reading this, I got revelation of a couple things.  First, God gives us the things we need to go throughout our day.  Both in the physical and in the spiritual.  Not that revelatory, but worth mentioning.  Second, some of the things He gives me are actually to help someone else make it through their day.  If I have an abundance, and someone else has need, what I have is for them.  What does it profit me to hoard that thing and save it for a rainy day or something I might need in the future if my brother is in need?  The manna in Exodus rotted, and I do not want what God has given to rot, so I should be intentional about giving away what I do not need both in the physical and in the spiritual.

Finally, in Vs. 7-10 of chapter 9, it seems to me that Paul is saying that if we give with a joyful spirit, then God is able to make His grace increase toward us.  We must have our giving with a right heart in order before we overflow with grace and abundance for every good work.  Also, he talks about God giving us seed and bread, and how He multiplies the seed that has been sown to increase the fruits of righteousness.  It does not say He multiplies the bread, but the seed.  He does not multiply all the seed, but the seed that is sown and that is how the fruit of righteousness is increased in our lives.  I would much rather have abundant fruit than just a little bit of seed and bread.

Poverty in Cambodia.

Poverty in Cambodia.

I want to return to the question I asked, who needs Jesus more?  The answer is that both the poorest of the poor living in the trash dump and the middle class American that has the extras need Jesus.  I could even argue that we as Americans have a greater need for Him because we can look to ourselves to work for and provide what we need.  Some people, no matter how hard they work, will never have what they need.  These people have to trust in something or Someone outside of themselves to get them through.  I encourage you to meditate on chapters 8-9 in 2 Corinthians and discover the gift of giving that God has given us.  It is not only for them, but it is for us.  What is the proof of our faith and love?  What is pure religion (James 1:27)?  What do we have that others need?  What has God given you for others that you have decided to hoard up for yourself?  What is rotting in your storehouse that is meant for others?  Joyously, give out what God has given you to give so that abundant fruit of righteousness may come to you and all the blessings that go along with it!!!

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

The Cost of Commitment

I shared in the previous post the message of the Call to Commitment that we as followers of Christ are called to walk in.  After I delivered this word to the church, the Holy Spirit came upon me in a powerful way.  As I sat there, He began to speak to me that for the people in the church this message would cost them much more than it would ever cost me.  He said that this would even cost some of the hearers their very lives.  As the Lord spoke this to my heart, I began to cry and be moved in my spirit for the people.

Jeremiah and baby

Here in India, Hinduism is predominant, and Christianity is the minority.  It is legal to be a Christian; however, it is against the law to share your Christian faith.  This being the case, we are international lawbreakers!!!  For us, the worst thing that would happen to us is that we would be deported.  However, the nationals we minister with every day, face much more life changing consequences.  They can be fined, beaten, imprisoned, or even killed in keeping with the law.  This persecution causes the people here to make a complete commitment to Christ every single day fully knowing the cost of their actions.  In America, often we will face the “persecution” of people mocking us, calling us names, saying mean things to us, treating us poorly…  Here, when the people turn from hinduism or islam (both of which are much more prevalent than Christianity) they will be completely disowned from their family and possibly village.  This along with physical persecution causes Indians to truly understand the cost in following Christ before coming to Him.  By the time they are willing to come to Him, they know that there is no turning back and give themselves completely to His service.

In spite of all this persecution, the church in India is growing and thriving in a mighty way.  Too often, in the US, we will make the half-hearted commitment to the Lord and easily turn back from doing the great things for Him that we were all designed to do before we were born.

How would each one of our lives be different if our commitment was true and full; and no matter what happened to us, our families, or our lives, we pressed in and were completely committed and obedient to the Lord???

What would the day to day changes be, in full commitment to Christ, that would cause us to be “persecuted” in our school, work, and even church?

When we seek to be committed to the Lord in such a way, the enemy will come in and try to make us do far less than the great exploits that Daniel spoke about.  The devil will try to use anything he can to keep us from being fully committed and doing great things for the Lord.  These are just three key lies the enemy has used against great men of God to keep them from being used greatly.

3 Lies that Make us Ineffective

  1. Too young (Jeremiah 1:5-10)  Here, Jeremiah buys into the lie that he is too young to do what God is calling him to.  God encourages him that He will be with him and do great things.  The rest of this book proves the great things Jeremiah does when he overcame this lie and committed fully to the Lord.
  2. Past sins that are too horrible (Jonah 3:4-10)  Jonah gets a call from the Lord and simply does not want to do it.  He runs from the Lord, and his heart is so hardened against the Lord that it takes three days in the belly of a fish before it is softened enough to repent.  Jonah grudgingly carries out the command of the Lord and offers a simple eight word proclamation to Nineveh.  As a result, over 120,000 people turn to the Lord and the whole city is saved.  God used him in spite of His unwillingness and blatant disobedience.  In the same way, God can and will use you if you are committed to Him no matter what the past held for you.
  3. Excuses, Excuses (Exodus 3-4)  When God comes and supernaturally speaks to Moses, Moses gives Him any and every excuse that he can come up with. He says “I am nobody,” “I cannot speak,”  and “Use someone else”.  God continues to destroy all of these lies, and Moses is used to free an entire nation of people.

Sadly, people are so steeped in the wisdom of this world that even in the church, they can rely on their own insights and miss the wisdom of the Lord.  When we were preparing to go out on this mission we knew that God had clearly given us a word to “Go”; however, there were many good Christian people that advised against it.  These counselors knew us and wanted the best for us, but I understood later that they had no investment in our lives.  The people that we called to pray and fast with us for a week, all gave us the confirmation that we were to go.  The ones that listened fully to how God had called us and the word that He had spoken to us understood and have encouraged us along the way.  The Lord had called us and we had to choose whether to follow Him in full commitment or to do what made sense.  We do not know yet the full outcome of our obedience, and I pray that we are always able to follow Him in what he calls us to do no matter how others will end up treating us.  In the end, we have been obedient and the Word of God has gone forth.  Whatever things that come from this mission, whether great or not, we know that we have been obedient to the Lord.

I pray that you are encouraged to be committed no matter what the cost may be or the tests that may come.  Whether we are ever tested as the Indians are or not, we must stand as truly committed followers of the Lord no matter what!!!  We are designed to truly carry out great and mighty things.  James 5:17 tells us that Elijah was man just like us.  There is no difference between us and this great man of God.  Wherever he came from and whatever the Lord took him through, he stood the cost of commitment, and God did great things through him.  For us, the choice is the same as every one of these men in the Bible.  Leonard Ravenhill said once that sometimes “the enemy of the best is the good.”  We can do many good things, but if we settle for these because they are easier or require less of a commitment, we are not doing the best that God has for us!!!  You have been created the best, by the Best, for the best!!!  Never settle for only the good, press in for the very best!!! Never back away from your commitment!!!  Always stand for the Lord in every situation!!!

Are you conquering the lies of the enemy that will hold you back from being truly committed to Him?

Ask Holy Spirit to reveal any lie that has caused to you settle for less than the best He has for you.  Examine the cost of following Him into the great things He has for you and ask Him to strengthen you to walk in the very best ways!!!

The promise of the Lord is that if you are completely committed to Him you will be strong; and just like Daniel, Jeremiah, Jonah, Moses, and Elijah, you will do great things!!! 

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!
