Israel: Ekballo!

For the past 39 days, thousands across America and the nations have been in an extended season of a Jesus Fast; praying for a fresh wave of Revival, Reformation, and the Proclamation of the Gospel to the nations. We have seen that we are in a critical 70-year transitional moment in history, as Daniel saw in his day in Daniel 9He set his face to fasting and prayer, in repentance with humility before the Lord; that a shift would take place in the desolate reality of his day, and that the Lord would extend His hand with forgiveness, restoration, and transformation. We know that he was met by the messenger angel, Gabriel, in the middle of praying and was encouraged that from the very moment he began praying, his prayer was heard in Heaven and a response was on its way (Daniel 9:20-22).

Astonishingly, these acts from Daniel harbingered a complete shift in the empires, powers, and principalities plaguing his day. Could it be that a humble act of one simple person being simply obedient, could in fact, change the course of history; not just for their people, but for the nations of the earth? We believe it can and that it will. We also know that where there is unity, He commands a blessing (Psalm 133). If the prayers of one righteous person could do all of those things, then what kind of kingdom-shaking fruit could the unified fasting and prayer of thousands across the world produce?

It is time to seize this kairos moment.

It is imperative that in seizing this moment, that we also pray for the nation of Israel, God’s chosen people. It is no coincidence that tomorrow, day 40 of this fast, is election day in Israel. There is a grand upheaval taking place in the unseen realm that we must acknowledge and not ignore. Make no mistake, if we do not stand with Israel and contend in prayer for His people and His government that has no end to be established in the land; then we will have missed it completely. It has been 70 years since Israel became a nation and the evangelistic outpouring of the Spirit began in 1948. We must pray for His government to be established in Israel and for righteous, God-fearing leaders to be set in place; and that grace and favor would be released.

When Jesus first commissioned His disciples in Matthew 9:36-38 as He gazed upon His people and saw that they were lost, weary, harassed, confused, scattered (as if being flayed, mangled, or skinned alive); and He felt such deep compassion upon them that it drove Him to action. He said, “Pray (plead, ‘urge you to beg Me’) to the Lord of the Harvest to SEND (EKBALLO- to hurl forth with violence, cast out, thrust forth) forth laborers into the Harvest.” As He sent His disciples out, He told them to go to the Israel- God’s lost sheep (Matthew 10:5-8) and not to the Gentiles. Because of their rejection of Him, we now are able to partake in eternity with Him; however, that desire never ceased even though they rejected Him. He will never cease in His pursuit of His Beloved.

Romans 11:11-12, 15 (TPT)
“So, am I saying that Israel stumbled so badly that they will never get back up? Certainly not! Rather, it was because of their stumble that salvation now extends to all the non-Jewish people, in order to make Israel jealous and desire the very things that God has freely given them. So if all the world is being greatly enriched through their failure, and through their fall great spiritual wealth is given to the non-Jewish people, IMAGINE HOW MUCH MORE WILL ISRAEL’S AWAKENING BRING TO US ALL!
“For if their temporary rejection released the reconciling power of grace into the world, what will happen when Israel is reinstated and reconciled to God? It will unleash resurrection power throughout the whole earth!”

IMAGINE HOW MUCH MORE WILL ISRAEL’S AWAKENING BRING TO US ALL!
IT WILL UNLEASH RESURRECTION POWER THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EARTH!

The global proclamation of the Gospel with signs, wonders, and stadiums filled!

This is what we are after. In prayer for Israel this morning and the elections, the Lord spoke this word:

“Your hour has come, Israel. The hour in which I take that which you have known as your reality and cause a great shaking and sifting. I am uprooting all opposition and enemy invasion. I will cause all that is opposed to Me and My plans and purposes to fall and be cast down. Every demonic force attempting to overthrow My hand in the land will be exposed on a micro level as well as a macro level. All corruption will be exposed and condemned.

Surely, it will not get beyond Me as I step in to set in place those in which I have ordained to take their place. You have been at war for your identity for long enough. I am stepping in with My hand of might and I am taking out of play all that would oppose you, seek to cause you harm, to try and orphan you, and to keep you in your shackles. Yes, I am shattering your shackles! No longer will you remain alone and isolated; but I am causing those who are riding with Me to join you and partner with you. The nations will look upon you and be in awe and wonder as I bring forth liberation you have not seen for a time and a half. They will will look upon you and say, ‘We have not seen such peace in our lifetime!’

For a time I seemed afar off, but now, I am coming close! Behold, I will demonstrate My power in the days ahead and all nations will see My victory! Your land promised you will be returned to you. No longer will foreigners occupy your territory; you will again live in the land given to your ancestors. Yes, you will dwell in your inheritance!

I will again clothe you with victory and righteousness. No longer will you be blindsided by that which would cause you harm; but I will take care of all that would attempt to overtake you. I am your Defender! Set your gaze on Me and align your focus on My Son!”

I felt very strongly that the Lord desires to fulfill His promise in Isaiah 52:1-12:

“Wake up, wake up, O Zion! Clothe yourself with strength. Put on your beautiful clothes, O holy city of Jerusalem, for unclean and godless people will enter your gates no longer. Rise from the dust, O Jerusalem. Sit in a place of honor. Remove the chains of slavery from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. For this is what the Lord says: ‘When I sold you into exile, I received no payment. Now I can redeem you without having to pay for you.’
This is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘Long ago My people chose to live in Egypt. Now they are oppressed by Assyria. What is this?’ asks the Lord. ‘Why are My people enslaved again? Those who rule them shout in exultation. My name is blasphemed all day long. But I will reveal My name to My people, and they will come to know its power. Then at last they will recognize that I am the one who speaks to them.’
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!
The watchmen shout and sing with joy, for before their very eyes they see the Lord returning to Jerusalem.
Let the ruins of Jerusalem break into joyful song, for the Lord has comforted His people. He has redeemed Jerusalem.
The Lord has demonstrated His holy power before the eyes of all the nations.
All the ends of the earth will see the victory of our God.
Get out! Get out and leave your captivity, where everything you touch is unclean. Get out of there and purify yourselves, you who carry home the sacred objects of the Lord. You will not leave in a hurry, running for your lives. For the Lord will go ahead of you; yes, the God of Israel will protect you from behind.”

Join us in praying:
Jesus, once again we know You are looking to Your own people harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd. And we know Your heart is broken because there are few laborers. So we take up Your groan and Your prayer. We seek to align with Your broken heart. We beg You to do what You have been longing to do since You first commanded Your disciples to pray this prayer, “Hurl forth laborers to the lost sheep of the house of Israel!” We say as we pray, “Ekballo Your laborers, and here we are, send us!” May we be those who grant the desire of Your heart to set the earth ablaze for the Glory of the Lord as You arrive to do the same!

Salvation Through a Babe

Night before last, I was deeply grieved to learn that the state of New York had achieved a ‘new height’. On Tuesday, on the 46th anniversary of the passing of Roe v. Wade, the legislation that legalized abortion across the United States, much of New York was in celebration for the set to pass Reproductive Health Act, a bill legalizing abortion all the way up until birth. It ‘removes abortion from the definition of homicide and from the penal code completely.’ This means that anyone who causes harm to or the death of an unborn baby cannot face capital punishment. There also would no longer be restrictions on who can perform abortions.

The governor of New York has pressed hard for abortion until birth and even after; he has said there is no place for ‘extreme conservatives’ in the state.

To bring reality to this bill if reality hasn’t already set in, let me put a few faces to this bill…
These are the faces of one they say is deserving of a death sentence. It is atrociously unfathomable that anyone would think they deserved to die simply for living their days in the darkness of my womb, being knit together perfectly by the hand of their loving Father. No matter the gestation age, Father was and is knitting together a precious gift when He places a child within our womb. They have a destiny and purpose, as does every single life, every child placed within the womb of their mother. These very lives, every life, is worth fighting for.

When reading his statement at the end of the article tagged above, the Lord began to impress upon me HIS Truth and speak to me regarding Cuomo’s statement, and I’m sure the statement of many across the U.S. He led me to Isaiah 45:11-12 (TPT): “Listen to what Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel, the One who shaped him, has to say: ‘Why do you question Me about the destiny of My children or tell Me what to do with My children and what I have made? I created the earth and populated it with people. With My own hands, I spread out the cosmos and then commanded the starry host to shine!'”

Isaiah 45:9-11 (MSG):
“But doom to you who fight your Maker—you’re a pot at odds with the potter! Does clay talk back to the potter: ‘What are you doing? What clumsy fingers!’ Would a sperm say to a father, ‘Who gave you permission to use me to make a baby?’ Or a fetus to a mother, ‘Why have you cooped me up in this belly?’ Thus God, the Holy of Israel, Israel’s Maker, says: ‘Do you question who or what I’m making? Are you telling Me what I can or cannot do? I made earth, and I created man and woman to live on it.'”

I was overwhelmed by Holy Spirit when reading this passage and then He brought me to verse 8 before it, Isaiah 45:8 (TPT): “Shower down righteousness, O heavens above. Let the clouds drip with deliverance! Let earth’s womb open and bear salvation’s fruit, with righteousness rising up beside it! I, Yahweh, have created all of them!”

The Lord began to bring to mind the word that He spoke for this year that you can find here: 2019: It’s All About Righteousness. I then heard Him say: On the heels of RIGHTEOUSNESS RESTORED, the heavens will DRIP WITH DELIVERANCE. A great travail will GIVE BIRTH TO THE FRUIT OF SALVATION in the land. A METAMORPHOSIS will take place and RIGHTEOUSNESS will be the marking point unto salvation. A CONVERGENCE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND LIFE WILL BUILD A COHESIVE FOUNDATION FOR REVIVAL TO EMERGE.

Ephesians 5:13-14 (TPT)
“Whatever the revelation-light exposes, it will also correct, and everything that reveals truth is light to the soul. This is why the Scripture says, ‘Arise, you sleeper! Rise up from the dead and the Anointed One will shine His light into you!’”

We must be a woke people to recognize our need for righteousness, deliverance, and salvation. The Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation shatters all deception, corrects and renews mindsets. If we are sleeping in apathy, complacency, and silence, God views us as if we are dead. It is time for the Light of Jesus to shine upon us and wake us up from the dead! 

Isaiah 45:20-25 (TPT)
“Come together! Assemble yourselves! Draw near, you refugees from among the nations. Those who parade their powerless wooden idols have no revelation knowledge. They keep on praying to gods who cannot save them. Declare what is to be and state your case. Go ahead and take counsel together. Who knew all about this and declared it long ago? Was it not I, Yahweh? There is no god apart from Me. I am a righteous God and a Savior. There is no one you can compare to Me. So turn your heart to Me, face Me now, and be saved wherever you are, even from the ends of the earth, for I alone am God, and there is no other. I make this solemn oath to you in My own name; this word sent forth from My mouth in righteousness will not return unfulfilled: ‘Truly every knee will bow before Me and every tongue will solemnly swear allegiance to Me!’ All will say of Me, ‘Yes! Only in Yahweh do I find righteousness and strength!’ And all who were angry with Me will come before Me and regret it! In Yahweh, all of Israel’s offspring will triumph and shine!”

God is not shocked or surprised by this death decree and sentencing. He knew it from the beginning. He is calling us forth with an invitation to AWAKEN, ASSEMBLE, REPENT, AND ARISE AS ADVOCATES UNTO ACTION!!!

He then led me to Isaiah 9:2 (TPT): “Those who walked in darkness have seen a radiant light shining upon them. They once lived in the shadows of death, but now a glorious light has dawned!”

Let the reality of what Isaiah said sink in. We’re looking at a nation of people walking in deep darkness. In Isaiah 8:20-22, the Lord says, “Listen to the teaching and instruction of the Lord! If their speech does not line up with His Word, they will have no light of dawn.” He goes on to say that they will wander in lack and become famished. In response they will be enraged and curse their king and Lord. Whether in the heavens or earth, they will find only despair, darkness, and fearful gloom, and be thrust into obscure darkness. I would say that the state of our nation greatly resembles this picture. However, Isaiah begins to prophesy THE DELIVERER for the people:

Isaiah 9:6-7 (TPT)
“A child has been born to us; a Son has been given to us. The responsibility of complete dominion (government) will rest on His shoulders, and His name will be: The Wonderful One! The Extraordinary Strategist! The Mighty God! The Father of Eternity! The Prince of Peace! Great and vast is His dominion. He will bring immeasurable peace and prosperity. He will rule on David’s throne and over David’s kingdom to establish and uphold it by promoting justice and righteousness from this time forward and forevermore. The marvelous passion that the Lord Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies, has for His people will ensure that it is finished!”

As Isaiah prophesied THE HOPE FOR SALVATION, I prophesy out of the deepest cry of my spirit:
Those walking in darkness have SEEN A GREAT LIGHT! The Light of Jesus is ripping through the darkness and shattering the gloom and doom cloud of death on a nation and generation! No longer will the blood-red stain of the murder of the innocent mark this nation for judgement; for a divine revelation of righteousness will be the drawback in preparation for the mass waves of deliverance to come. The only blood we will see is the cleansing blood of Jesus rolling across America from coast to coast; bringing cleansing in it’s crests! I decree and declare that just as the shift from judgement to divine justice took place when the first breath of life was expelled from a babe, a Savior, King Jesus, wrapped in cloth; so will divine justice break forth like the dawn with the breath of a generation who will never know the reality of genocide. The darkness of deception was obliterated the very moment that our Savior entered this world, The Son was born. When the blood of Jesus comes as a red wave to wash America white as snow, we will see LIFE burst forth from the rays of the dawn and ecstatic JOY will emanate in the heavens. It will be said across all the land, “Look at this great harvest of LIFE!
The Lord says, “Soon I will raise My hand and signal to the nations, and they will come with your little boys bundled in their arms and your little daughters carried on their shoulders. Kings will be their babysitters and queens their nursing mothers. I will fight those who fight you, I Myself will save your children. I will cause your enemies to feast on their own flesh and drink rivers of their own blood. Then you and all the world will know that I am Yahweh, your Savior and Redeemer, and I will never disappoint those who entwine their hearts with Mine.”

I have seen a variety of responses to the heart-breaking news and the majority of the responses are centered around the debauchery of New York (much like we’ve seen with California, etc.); and how many wouldn’t want to be living there right now for the judgement that is coming.

David saw a heavenly exchange between Father and Jesus in Psalm 2:7-9 (NLT): “The king proclaims the Lord’s decree: The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become Your Father. Only ask, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, the whole earth as Your possession. You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots.’” 

Knowing the responses and reflecting upon it and the truth of Psalm 2, I leave you with this truth and charge:

It is easy to allow apathy and complacency to take hold when it comes to news of regions outside of our own, outside of our own reality. However, I will challenge you in that your mindset might need to change. Yes, it’s possible that New York may not be where you are stationed right now and the judgement of God will always come upon a people in opposition to His Word. Make no mistake, the choices of one person, one city, one state absolutely directly affects you; as does the judgement that comes. Instead of disowning the state and people for their choices, we must realize that we cannot outrun the fallout. It is our responsibility as those who call ourselves ‘sons and daughters’ to take ownership of the actions of our nation and people, especially for those who refuse to do so. The judgement of God will fall upon this nation as a whole; with the outcome of the judgement being up to us.

We can either choose to mentally and emotionally neuter ourselves from what is set before us and suffer the consequences as an entire nation; or we can join God in what He wants to come from this: A divine awakening of sons and daughters that will stand up to the enemy operating in the unseen realm and fall to our knees in repentance on behalf of our country and people. Jeremiah and I have chosen to take God’s Word as our own and to live by it. When He said to only ask and He will give us the nations as our inheritance, the ends of the earth, our possession; we have taken Him at His word. Joshua 1:3 says wherever we set foot, He will give the land to us as an inheritance. This also means that wherever you point yourself to, He will give it to you. We personally have walked the streets of New York in intense prayer and spiritual warfare for the land five years ago when we began our faith journey. New York is a gateway city and the enemy is hard-pressed in war over it. We have pointed our faces and prayers to New York AND walked its land, and we REFUSE TO ALLOW THE ENEMY TO GAIN POSSESSION OF THIS GATEWAY, OF OUR INHERITANCE!!! WE WILL FIGHT UNTIL WE SEE THE HEAD OF HAMAN ROLL ACROSS THE GROUND AND HIS DEATH DECREE REVERSED!!!

I challenge you to AWAKE, ASSEMBLE, REPENT, AND ARISE TO ACTION on the behalf of the state, people, and nation! This is our mission: 

Ephesians 5:8-9 (TPT)
“Once your life was full of sin’s darkness, but now you have the very light of our Lord shining through you because of your union with Him. Your mission is to live as children flooded with His revelation-light! And the supernatural fruits of His light will be seen in you—goodness, righteousness, and truth. Then you will learn to choose what is beautiful to our Lord.”

In the next day or two, I will share a word from the Lord specifically about what actions we are to take and what He is doing.

So What About That Red Wave?

Yesterday was a remarkable day in the nation of America. For many in the Body of Christ, they’re grieving over the exchange that took place as the Democrats gained control of the House. We have seen many prophetic voices in the streams prophesy recently a “red wave” or a “red tsunami”, alluding that in these mid-term elections the Republicans would gain control across the board. I have read and listened to many trusted voices and I believe that much of what was to take place was contingent on the Bride of Christ rising up in prayer, action, and support of Kingdom of Heaven living. Now today, not to my surprise since nothing is new under the sun, these obedient prophetic voices are under attack and being labeled as false prophets, and the enemy is causing the religious, offensible ones to go on a senseless rampage.

I am not saying that sometimes we prophets get it a bit off or might even get it completely off for a number of reasons. Let’s be real, we are all still human and if I learned anything from discussing this with my Husband this morning, it would be that when God reveals prophecy, we must also be careful to deliver the straight up Word or vision in obedience and not allow our interpretations of it shift or sway the details. When God reveals something, it could be easy to interpret a detail through what makes sense to us. Let’s not get all up in arms condemning and crucifying those who spoke out what they believe God revealed to them; whether they heard and share correctly or were off. Rather, let’s encourage them as they, themselves will be dealing with the fall out of last night’s results.

I also say this because I, myself, learned this in the past two days. In prayer yesterday morning over the elections, I received part of the Word that I will share below, but struggled the entire time with seeing in part, the vision being foggy, distractions, and interruptions from my now early bird toddlers (thanks daylight savings…) I tried again to get clarity and revelation in the afternoon thinking that because of the subject of the Word, that I needed a complete Word to share before the day was through or it could be irrelevant. I was unsuccessful, except for a slight addition. Seeing the majority of the results last night, I was a bit discouraged because I, too, heard the Lord say that there would be a “red wave” result; and had been hearing that and prophesying it in prayer for weeks.

This morning I decided to sit down and seek the Lord for understanding and fullness of revelation, and I finally got it. What I realized through the Word, was that I did indeed hear clearly from the Lord, however, I had been interpreting the details based on my own analysis and wisdom instead of seeing from the Lord’s eyes and possessing His full knowledge. He confirmed what He intended with the Word below:

“A wave is rising to bring a tide of change in the atmosphere of transference. A divine transference of mantles are taking place in the spirit realm even now. For many, I have already gone ahead and anointed them to take their place, as with David. In the days to come, the unrighteous, the ones My Spirit has departed from, will surely come to a revelation that their seat of power has been plucked from their hands, as did Saul. Surely, there will be many unexpected changes take place that were thought impossible. For behold, many will say, “I can’t believe this is happening! I was a shoo-in!” Because My children have stepped up out of their caves of hiding and apathy, have taken their rightful places as My Kingdom ambassadors and advancers, I have dispatched angels on assignment to disrupt the influence of the enemy and even run off those who would oppose My divine plan. Look out and see upon the horizon, the red wave rising in increasing proportions, signifying the new wave of revival being birthed on the heels of the blood of the Lamb being poured out upon the nation of America – washing away sin and making atonement for the shedding of innocent blood. The tables have turned for you, America! Begun, the transformation has.”

While, the Lord was speaking this Word, I was taken into an open vision. In this vision, I walked up to a set of double doors where the Senate and House of Representatives meet. Just then, an angel with the appearance of a man stood next to me. He was dressed in a white robe with brown hair and had a young face. I knew in my spirit that he was an angel of justice. He said to me, “come on!”, and he opened the doors and we entered through them. Before me was the meeting place of Congress. We walked down to the front of the room where there is a pathway of separation from the seats up front as well as seats all around and behind us. Standing in the empty room, I looked up at the seats in the front of us and began to see certain seats highlighted as if they were lit up like a lightbulb. I began to glance around the room and saw spread out all around the room, seats lit up. I looked at the angel of justice who had not said anything at this point and asked, “what does all of this mean?” I heard a booming voice in the room say, “32.” I asked him what it meant, for I didn’t understand. He said, “32 seats of change. 32 chances for transference.”

Just then, I saw a giant set of scales descend down upon us and take its place before us. I inquired of what was before me. The angel said, “the scales of justice are taking their place. They will weigh every single member – yes, every single judge of your nation will be weighed on this scale of righteousness. For every one that does not measure up to My standard of righteousness, they will be given either the chance to turn away from their wickedness and corrupt opposition and turn to Me or they will be deposed.” I looked and on the top of the scale was an eye that searched into the depths of each and determined whether they were fit to govern or if they were possessed by darkness as their influence.

“Take a look and be ensured that the Word of the Lord will not fall void and fruitless, but WILL accomplish all it was sent forth to. Surely, a red tsunami WILL come, just not in the way that many anticipated. In the next two years, you will see the repercussions of this scale take effect; for the opposition has been heavy and intense, but I am more powerful than any enemy and I WILL have My way! I decree and declare that in the days ahead, what looked like a major victory of the enemy will prove to have only increased the activity of angels on assignment. Investigations will come against the very ones who wish to investigate My chosen one. Fraud will be exposed. Deception will be revealed. The seedpods of corruption and darkness will not be planted in the soils of your governing bodies. They will not take root, but will each be unearthed and cast into the fire.

“I tell you now, as divine judgement takes place in the courts of America, you will find even the transference of seats take place in ways and methods not seen in decades. Even of those newly elected ones, some will be cast out because of the revealing of dark secrets expected to remain concealed. Surely, no one is safe! Young and old, alike, all will be judged! You will hear many say, “how can this be? Surely, this isn’t true!” The shock that takes place will be on a large-scale as if an earthquake just struck the courts of America. Indeed, corrupt, corroded structures established on unsteady soil will crumble! None will be able to withstand the shaking! Only those with firm foundations established on righteousness will be able to withstand not only the initial quake, but also the aftershocks!”

As he said this, I saw the shores of a coast and saw the waters begin to recede into the heart of the sea; exposing bare the seabed beneath and everything that was once hidden is now seen clearly. I knew in my spirit that this was the recession of the sea in preparation for and preceding the massive waves of a tsunami. I then heard the Lord say, “The time is now for recession unto succession.”

Isaiah 51:4-5 (AMP)
“Listen carefully to Me [says the Lord], o My people, and hear Me, o My nation; for a [divine] law will go forth from Me, and I will quickly establish My justice as a light to the peoples. My righteousness (justice) is near, My salvation has gone forth, and My arms will judge the peoples; the islands and coastlands will wait for Me, and they will wait with hope and confident expectation for My arm.”

Beloved, we must not be swayed to and fro by what we see with our eyes, for we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises] (2 Corinthians 5:7 AMP). Even if the elections did not go the way many thought, wanted, or hoped, God is still sovereign over it all and has not given up on America because of a party change. “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.” (Isaiah 55:11 AMP). It is time to press on, press forward, seek His face, and seek to carry out Kingdom Advancement!

Healing Waters, Tree of Life

A few days ago, I made mention of how the Lord moved mightily during our Sunday morning service. After a few days dwelling on what the Lord released and how He crashed in on our plans and took over, I am ready to share a bit of what took place. 


Church on Sunday morning was truly incredible and completely normal for God! During worship while in prayer, I felt Holy Spirit fall on me powerfully. I saw in the spirit a portal open in the supernatural realm and a pillar of swirling water descended upon the altar area. The sound of a mighty rushing waters began to increase in volume as I watched the waters churn. We just happened to be singing out of Isaiah 6, when Isaiah saw the Lord in His Temple and our worship and praise were being poured out like incense to the Lord. From the same opening that the pillar of water descended came an angel that was clothed in the brightest blue garments I have ever seen and it was his special assignment to churn the waters. He began singing, dancing, and spinning in praise within the waters and as he did, his wings as they touched would clap a thunderous sound as they stirred the waters. These were waters of divine and total healing.

The Lord reminded me of John 5 and the pool of Bethesda. John 5:1-4 (TPT) says,“Then Jesus returned to Jerusalem to observe one of the Jewish holy days. Inside the city near the Sheep Gate there is a pool called in Aramaic, The House of Loving Kindness. And this pool is surrounded by five covered porches. Hundreds of sick people were lying there on the porches—the paralyzed, the blind, and the crippled, all of them waiting for their healing. For an angel of God would periodically descend into the pool to stir the waters, and the first one who stepped into the pool after the waters swirled would instantly be healed.”  It goes on to say that there was a man who had been crippled for 38 years who laid beside the pool, always waiting for the angel to come and descend into the waters to stir them, awaiting eagerly his chance to enter the waters and be healed. There was just one problem though, he was unable to get into the waters himself. He required assistance and because only one person could receive their healing each time the angel came, and because hundreds with afflictions came awaiting the very same thing, he would always get passed over. 


Enter Jesus. 


Jesus notices him there helpless and asks if he truly wants to be healed. Because of mounting disappointment and discouragement, having missed his chance countless times before, the man replies in verse 7, “Sir, there’s no way I can get healed, for I have no one who will lower me into the water when the angel comes. As soon as I try to crawl to the edge of the pool, someone else jumps in ahead of me.” 


How many of you can say you relate to this man? He spent 38 years debilitated, void of a truly free life. When he saw an out laid right before him, he waited at the water’s edge for who knows how long. His freedom was laid right before him, within reach, yet he was unable to lay hold of it. After all of the discouragement, he began to believe he would never get his healing. He recognized his need for assistance but due to hope deferred, he was blind to the Healer standing before him


Perhaps there’s pain, sickness, affliction that you have been dealing with for a long time or for someone else. Perhaps you’ve been praying for healing for years only to see no results. Perhaps hope deferred has made your heart sick. (Proverbs 13:12Perhaps you’ve become so used to the pain that it has become part of your identity and you’ve learned to just deal. 


The Lord spoke to me when seeing the healing waters on Sunday that He wanted to release divine healing in the room, especially for those who had dealt with affliction for a long time. We released that word and called people forward to jump into the healing waters. While praying for people, the Lord gave me a word of knowledge that there was someone dealing with chronic pain for a long time and He wanted to heal them. No one came forward for it, so Jesus pointed the man out to me. Jeremiah and I went to pray for him and he knew I read his mail when we walked up to him. I told him I knew it was him and he said that he had been dealing with severe arthritis for four years and had chronic pain in his wrist and knee. We told him Jesus pointed him out because He wanted to heal him and asked if we could pray for him. He said “okay” and as we were praying, I asked if he felt anything different. He said there was a little change and that he could deal, that he was fine. This man is an example of many of us, just like the crippled man. We come to a place of either believing that this is our life now or that others need the healing more than us and that we can just deal. When we believe that others are worse off and need the healing more than us, we submit to that lie and are basically limiting God’s power, saying that He has a limited supply of healing. 


So with the crippled man, Jesus responded to him in verses 8 and 9“Stand up! Pick up your sleeping mat and you will walk!” Immediately he stood up—he was healed! So he rolled up his mat and walked again! Now this miracle took place on the Jewish Sabbath.”  Jesus offered his healing but it required action on his part. Either he could lie there and remain in his identity of being crippled or he could choose to believe Jesus and respond and step into his original design. Thus we return to Proverbs 13:12 for the second and most important part, “but a promise fulfilled is a tree of life.” 


Jesus did miraculous miracles that day. I had also got a word of knowledge about a rotator cuff and before I could say it, Jesus had healed a woman who had a torn one and had been unable to lift her arm for seven months! There was another woman who had separated vertebrae and was in constant severe pain, unable to cope. She woke up that morning in so much pain, she almost didn’t come to church. She didn’t want to take pain meds because they make her fall asleep. She came to church in excruciating pain and Jesus came as she was in the waters and completely healed her! No more pain!!! YES, LORD!!! 


Beloved, these miracles are for each one of you today just as they were in their time. The same Jesus that healed in these moments is the same Jesus that sees your need and wants to give you a tree of life! We must not allow ourselves to identify with the afflictions upon us, but press in and press on into the healing waters set before us! Jesus has MORE THAN ENOUGH of what we need when we need it! Reach out and take hold of His blessing today!

Awaken All You People

Word of the Lord-

The enemy has been masquerading himself as an angel of unity and diversity but he is just trying to create a distraction while he sows seeds of division and hatred. Sadly, many eyes and hearts are being led astray, saved and unsaved alike. My Spirit is indeed moving in the midst of all of the unnecessary chaos to bring revelation and restoration. 

The enemy would like nothing more than to keep My children from going out and turning the world upside-down and bringing My love and fire to the nations. 

Many have become preoccupied with being entertained by feeble and folly things that bear no eternal fruit; all while souls are perishing into an eternity of hell apart from Me. Truly I tell you, being entertained by man-made distractions gains nothing, for you may very well not only be losing your own soul but the souls of many. There is greater joy when one sinner repents than of any and all of the entertainment that this world has to offer! 

Wake up you misled, lazy ones! The world, indeed, all of creation is awaiting your awakening! For those who will get over and get past all of the ways that the enemy is moving and wage war where it is due- not against each other but against the spirits at work to bring destruction and division. This is not an earthly war between man but a war of the supernatural. 

Where are the ones who would pray and stand against the evil taking place in the unseen realm? For My Spirit is at work in all of these things and the weapons at hand for those who will partner with Me are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds. Who will be bold enough to lay down their lives and join Me in this war where I win? 

Matthew‬ ‭10:34‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth! I came not to bring peace, but a sword.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:3-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. And after you have become fully obedient, we will punish everyone who remains disobedient.”

Matthew 10:7-8‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”

Know the Truth

Our time in Cambodia was different from every other place that God has taken us to, as has been the pattern of our journey thus far.  One of the things that remain the same is that God never fails to bring about God appointments where ever we go.

This little guy decided to join us on the bus and fell asleep on me.

This little guy decided to join me on the bus and fell asleep on me.

Last Saturday, Jeremiah and I went to an internet cafe for breakfast so we could do some work.  Soon after ordering drinks, the electricity went off and we found ourselves in the presence of a woman trying to get us to buy cookies to benefit the children of Cambodia. Jeremiah asked her what they do for the children and she said that they do a reading program. Jeremiah responded, saying that we believe unless you are helping them spiritually as well, you are not really helping them at all.  She said that they do help them spiritually, that they too were Christians.  She then invited us to her church for service on Sunday morning.  Later on that evening, Jeremiah said that he felt that there was an open door with this woman and we would go to her church.  Though no one on the base had heard of this church, we made a deal that we would try and find it and if not, we would have church together.

After a little trouble finding the church (It was not at Omega Hotel, but at Alpha Hotel…perhaps we should have started at the beginning and not the end,)  we arrived at the small gathering of people all dressed in the same white clothing.  Their church service consisted of watching and partaking in a pre-taped service from the Philippines, at their home church.  It did not take long for us to realize that this was no ordinary church service, but it was in fact, a cult that we had been invited to.  There were so many red flags within the first 10 minutes and throughout the 3 hour service.  During the service, I asked Jeremiah several times about leaving, but he said he felt there was someone to talk to.

The pastor of the church essentially spoke a message of repentance, through instilling fear that without repenting, horrible things would occur.  That you must repent and your life has to be completely given over to the Father and King, and live accordingly to the will of the Father.  He also spoke primarily on God’s love, reading all of 1 Corinthians 13.  Through many things, this man had now become the “Appointed Son of God”; basically, Jesus had not finished the work. Jesus came for the Jews, but God had appointed him to come for the Gentiles.  After the service, the leader of the church tried to get us to come to a meeting to hear more but he would not share the beliefs, saying that it was too complicated.

The Truth is, what Jesus preached was not complicated.  It is simple and made for everyone to understand. God sent us there to speak Truth where there was deception.  No, we did not see a change immediately, but planting Truth will always win out in the end, because Jesus is The Way, THE TRUTH, and The Life.  The problem with this cult and many others is that the people heard the message one man was given through spoken word, dreams and visions, and they followed him. There was no Bible there during his time of receiving this.  The Bible says ‘the enemy disguises himself as an angel of light’ (2 Cor. 11:14).  Paul warns us over and over again in Romans to beware of false prophets and teachers.  Though this man taught from Scripture, he was not teaching the whole Bible and from the Lord, thus leading 6 million people astray.

The point of the photo always stood out to me.

The point of this always got me.

 Joshua 1:8 instructs us toStudy this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.”  We must study and know the Bible by spending time with God and receiving revelation from Him. Then when the enemy comes, we will be able to recognize it and bring to light what is moving in the darkness.  Have you given yourself wholly to studying the Word and receiving all the God wants to give you through it?  Are you familiar with the Truth and able to discern when something is not Biblical?  If not, I urge you to learn the Truth; and the best way to do this is by spending time with Jesus and reading His Word and receive the life and joy that comes from this devotion!!!
