The Matthew 28 Baptism

Twenty-eight.

Sunday was a three-fold day of blessing and fire for me. It was not just Mother’s Day. It was not just my 28th Birthday. It was also the day that I was baptized into a new and higher realm with Jesus. It was the day where the culmination of many streams of what God has been doing in my life and with my destiny all converged into one single strand of fire unto the nations.ACBF75A5-A0BA-42CF-B706-2A302AF82B78
I have spent countless time over the years pondering on and seeking the Lord for my place in the Kingdom. Many things became apparent, but I was still left with many yet-to-be-answered questions. Many promises yet to be fulfilled.

If there is one thing I have been sure of with His plans for me, it was always that He created me to be a mother. Over the past few years, He began to reveal how multifaceted that call actually was.

He was not calling me to just be a physical mother to the precious children that I carried within my womb and bore. He destined me to be a mother to the orphans and those forgotten; to take up the cause of Justice for His Little Ones (both unborn and fatherless). He pre-ordained me to be a spiritual mother to a generation of Burning Ones and to love, forerun, prepare the way, contend, ascend, and to champion them into their destinies.

I understand now why I was born on Mother’s Day; why I get to celebrate that divine convergence frequently through my years.

MATTHEW 28:18-20Jesus commissions us all to GO into ALL NATIONS and PREACH THE GOSPEL, TEACH, TRAIN, BAPTIZE, and MAKE DISCIPLES; teaching them that the Kingdom of Heaven is AT HAND. It is a gift freely received when we receive Jesus and His finished work on the cross. It is a gift we are to freely give out like a sweet love offering to The Only One Who is worthy to receive all of who we are and all we have to give. He declares that just as the Father sent Him, He is sending us!

His promise is that all authority under Heaven and on earth has been given to Him; and He has given us that very same authority because of His Holy Spirit Who dwells within us. Therefore, EVERYTHING THAT HE DID, WE CAN DO. That’s His Command, Expectation, and Promise…

Matthew 10:7-8 (TPT)
“And as you go, preach this message: ‘Heaven’s Kingdom realm is accessible, close enough to touch.’ 
You must continually bring healing to lepers and to those who are sick, and make it your habit to break off the demonic presence from people, and raise the dead back to life. Freely you have received the power of the Kingdom, so freely release it to others.”

After five years, the door to the nations are finally open again to me personally and the Lord has been so good to open two nations this year. In three weeks I will return to Spain for the third time and will be joining my father and mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and a small team of pastors to preach the Gospel, evangelize, train, and equip the Spaniards to do the same; all to see Spain reawakened and set on fire for the Lord. At the end of the year, I will also be joining a team to bring the Fire and Glory of the Lord to one of the most closed nations to the Gospel in South Asia.

To say that I am excited is an understatement. To be honest, part of me over the past few years began to feel a bit downtrodden in regards to not being released to GO. Our hearts are so for the nations that we would drop everything in a moment to GO if He called us. In the past five years, Jeremiah was released to go to a number of nations and the fruit of those opportunities to partner with Him in His work in the nations is overwhelming. Though I was never able to physically set foot in those nations, Jesus was so faithful to grow me as I shepherd the hearts of those of my first ministries, my children. He also pushed me to partner and sow in prayer and in prophesying His Word into those nations; and because of that and the union with my Husband, I am able to partake in the same fruit that was bore through the labor of my Husband’s hands.

Jesus revealed to me through a Heavenly encounter while Jeremiah was ministering in a Southeast Asian nation in August of last year that He was opening the nations once again and He released keys to specific nations to take for the Glory of God; and that even this year I would once again set foot in the nations. That they would never be closed to us again. I held those promises close to my heart and prophesied them forth in the secret place; and here we are.

Recently I heard Him say, “It’s necessary that my Husband baptize me on my birthday to step into the next phase of my destiny of bringing His fire to the nations. Matthew 28 on 28.” That it was to be a fresh baptism of fire to be a Mother to many nations.

After baptizing me, Jeremiah was baptized in a renewed commitment to love Jesus and partner with Him in carrying the fire of God to all nations. He loves me so well to also be baptized, to join with me in what God is doing in and through me. He loves Jesus so well to do whatever it takes to ascend higher in the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.FC117164-E8BD-4400-854F-9FFE7EF48BA0

All of this with our boys right in it.

What greater legacy could we leave them, than to declare with our lives that we love Jesus with everything we are and would lay down our very lives to proclaim His name and to set nations ablaze for the Glory of God?! My sincerest prayer is that they would never forget the love offerings of that day and of our lives laid down for Jesus. That they would be further marked by the hand and fire of God to do greater things for the Kingdom of God than we ever could, and to take more nations into the Kingdom of Heaven that we could ever dream of.

We love You, Jesus. To the ends of the earth for LOVE.

My prayer through sharing all of this is that you would receive a fresh impartation of the baptism of fire of Holy Spirit and that you would begin to see the nations with a renewed vision, through His eyes of love, compassion, and that He would sear nations on your heart.

Being called to GO isn’t just for our family; it is for every soul. It is not His Great Suggestion, but His Great Command; His Great Commission. He desires every person to co-labor with Him and co-mission with Him to set the nations ablaze and to bring Him the reward of His suffering!

Let’s step up, step out, unafraid and unashamed; and not let another soul perish while we can do something about it! We have the very Spirit of God abiding within us and therefore, all authority over every power of hell is within us; all power over every principality is contained within this earthen vessel. May we surrender everything to laying down our very lives for this one thing: that Jesus may be glorified among the nations.

LORD, EKBALLO!!!

Matthew 10:7-8
(AMP)
“Jesus came up and said to them, ‘All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.'”

(TPT)
“Then Jesus came close to them and said, ‘All the authority of the universe has been given to Me.
 Now go in my authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.'”

Victorious in Light

This morning while in the secret place, I had been reading the last few chapters of Mark’s account of Jesus’ path to the cross, His resurrection, His encounters with believers and His friends after His resurrection, and of His commission to His apostles to go into all the earth, preach the Good News and make disciples.

I reflected upon what Jesus did during those specific last days two-thousand years ago. He suffered continuous betrayal, died a cruel sinner’s death upon the cross, though He be sinless. He shattered the gates of hell and took back the keys of death and the grave, and He rose to life victoriously. He commissioned His apostles and us to go to every nation, tribe, and tongue and declare that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand; and He ascended to sit upon His heavenly throne and reign victoriously forever. He went to prepare a place for us.

As I sat overwhelmed with a fresh revelation of this reality leading up to Resurrection Day tomorrow, He began to speak to me about what He is doing now and what He is going to do. I heard Him say:

“Glory and splendor are rising unto My name. Death has been defeated and I am victorious in light!!! You will look and see My glory in ways unheard of! So much joy is coming in a mighty increase, yes, a mighty crescendo throughout eternity.

The nations will gaze upon Me and be filled with new life!

My glory is My goodness; and I restore what was broken and severed. You have yet to know what I am going to do! For what is coming is going to be greater than what has been!

For My name’s sake, I am bringing with Me a new light and a new life in this present darkness. Where the sun and moon will be darkened, I will bring a flash of light that will be a sign to you of My promise. A sign of release to My gift of restoration will you see.

I am taking what was broken and left in destitution and I am rebuilding a new creation, far better than what was. The nations will gaze upon what I masterfully create and will be amazed and in awe and wonder!

You will know the age of rejoicing has come by these signs. Come with your joy offerings and your sacrifices of love and watch what I do! I make all things better than before! I make all things new!”

Isaiah 60:1-4 (TPT)
“Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned, and Yahweh’s glory now streams from you! Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you and the brightness of His glory appears over you! Nations will be attracted to your radiant light and kings to the sunrise-glory of your new day. Lift up your eyes higher! Look all around you and believe, for your sons are returning from far away and your daughters are being tenderly carried home. Watch as they all gather together, eager to come back to you!”

V. 10, 14 (TPT)
“Foreigners will rebuild your walls and their kings will serve you. Even though I punished you in My anger, I will restore you in My gracious favor, and show you My tender compassion.”
“The descendants of your oppressors will come bowing low before you, and all who hated you will bow down at your feet. They will call you The Beautiful City of Yahweh, Glorious Zion of the Holy One of Israel.”

V. 15-16 (TPT)
“Although once you were rejected and despised, undesirable for anyone to pass through you, I will make you majestic forever, a source of joy for every generation. You will guzzle the milk of nations and suckle at the breast of kings. You will know Me intimately that I am Yahweh, your Savior, for I am the Mighty Hero who rules over Jacob’s tribes, your Kinsman-Redeemer!”

V. 19-22 (TPT)
“The sun will no longer be needed to brighten the day, nor the moon to shine at night, for Yahweh will be your unfailing light; your God will be your glory! There will be no more sunsets or new moons, for Yahweh will be your everlasting light and your days of sadness will be over. All your people will be righteous and will permanently possess the land. I planted them there as a tender sapling, the work of My own hands to display My glory. I will multiply the least of you into a thousand and the weakest one into a mighty nation. I am Yahweh, and when the right time comes, I will accomplish it swiftly!”

Awakening is Breaking Forth!

In the past few weeks since returning home after The Send, I have encountered extreme warfare that I believe has been rolling across many in the Body of Christ in this hour of transition into the new era. Being truly lit on fire during my time there, I immediately recognized a slumbering spirit partnered with a spirit of disillusionment and disorientation rising up in opposition. I returned with a fresh commission and suddenly it became extremely difficult and took great pressing to connect into the dream stream with the Lord and to see and hear clearly.
I get up rather early in the morning to seek Him and found that every morning a slumbering spirit kept attacking me; so overwhelmingly strong was its attempts. I have spent the past few weeks battling and warring against it, with much frustration I must admit. I can attest that yesterday morning I broke through. I was in the middle of reading Isaiah 46 and struggling to stay focused. When I got to verse 13 and read it, immediately it was as if something snapped that I could even hear in the spirit; and I came out of it right then and was completely awake and aware.

Isaiah 46:13 (TPT)
“I am bringing My righteousness closer to you; it is not far off. My deliverance will not be delayed, for I will set My salvation in Zion for Israel My glory!”

Isaiah 46:13 (NLT)
“For I am ready to set things right, not in the distant future, but right now! I am ready to save Jerusalem and show My glory to Israel.”

I knew without a doubt that what took place resonated across time and space, representing what He is releasing throughout the nations; signifying the moment of season’s change. Where I had been warring to hear and see through the fog stationed before me, suddenly I perceived with undimmed eyes and heard with unclogged ears. He told me to go back a chapter to Isaiah 45 and to remember a verse from it that I shared in two posts, Salvation Through a Babe and 2019: It’s All About Righteousness, a few months ago; to remember what He declared then.

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 them all!”

As I read the verse, I was overcome with joyful expectation and a greater understanding of a word He has been speaking to Jeremiah and I this year, “A storm is coming!” It is then that I heard Him say:

America, your days are numbered.
Numbered are the days in which you will remain in your current condition. Numbered are the days in which the hand of the enemy has played you and delayed you from entering into your spring season. Where there was once a dried up winter laden with a bitter freeze and cold; the warmth of the Son’s rays are stretching forth to melt away the dead of winter. To your astonishment, you will find that as the snow and ice melts away, life is exposed and unearthed beneath the blanket of slumbering. The bondage you have known for far too long as an arctic winter will keep you in darkness no longer.

Look out upon the horizon and see the sun breaking forth! Look out and see the new life shooting up from the nourished soil. I take the things once dried up and frozen in darkness and I breathe new life in the change of season.

I have seen and heard the hunger and prayers offered up as incense before My Throne and the bowls have tipped, running over! Behold, I have watched as the tear-stained prayers and petitions and the rumbling growls of the hungry have crept and swept across My Throne! They have washed My feet as an offering of praise.

Truly I tell you, just as I brought eternal honor to My servant, Mary for her pure devotion and adoration; so will I honor and bring an eternal remembrance to the fresh offering being given in this hour. The sacrifice has been and will forever be worth it!

I say to you, DO NOT RELENT IN YOUR PURSUIT for just as the offering has been spilled out before and upon My feet; you will see it turn into a steady stream flowing from My Throne to the floodgates. They will burst open at the force of the stream crashing into them and you will see them returned back to you in storm clouds bringing the abundance of rain!

DO YOU HEAR THE TRICKLE NOW? DO YOU PERCEIVE IT? CHANGE IS IN THE AIR!

The more that you seek My face in the secret place, the greater the outpouring of Heaven! Gaze out upon your land and prophesy that which I have spoken. Declare the increase of LIFE that I have shown you. DO NOT BE SILENT, but allow your awakened state to call forth the awakening and the ascension! Look out and see RIGHTEOUSNESS RISING! RIGHTEOUSNESS IS COMING! I am ready to make My goodness pass before you! I will cast My Glory upon you!

An almond tree is the first tree to awaken with Spring’s arrival. Almond means “awake.”

All this past weekend I kept seeing 111 and 1111 literally everywhere I turned, way more than normal. Those numbers are symbolic of transition and awakening. I even saw an almond tree signifying awakening and season’s change, among other things, like in Jeremiah 1. I knew that something was coming forth in the spirit then and that a breaker was being released. He spoke when the lights switched on yesterday morning, “I am coming forth to complete what I began!”

Jeremiah 1:11-12 (AMP)
“The word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘Jeremiah, what do you see?’ And I said, ‘I see the branch of an almond tree.’ Then the Lord said to me, ‘You have seen well, for I am [actively] watching over My word to fulfill it.'”

It is no coincidence either that a change in seasons in the natural with the start of Spring tomorrow is occurring in this moment of time. All of creation is responding to the shift taking place!

Song of Solomon 2:10-13 (TPT)
“The one I love calls to me: 
Arise, My dearest. Hurry, My darling. Come away with Me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to My heart and lead you out. For NOW IS THE TIME, My beautiful one. THE SEASON HAS CHANGED, THE BONDAGE OF YOUR BARREN WINTER HAS ENDED, and the season of hiding is over and gone. THE RAINS HAVE SOAKED THE EARTH and left it bright with blossoming flowers. The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, FILLING THE AIR WITH SONGS TO AWAKEN YOU AND GUIDE YOU FORTH.
CAN YOU NOT DISCERN THIS NEW DAY OF DESTINY BREAKING FORTH AROUND YOU?
THE EARLY SIGNS OF MY PURPOSES AND PLANS ARE BURSTING FORTH. THE BUDDING VINES OF NEW LIFE ARE NOW BLOOMING EVERYWHERE.
 The fragrance of their flowers whispers, ‘THERE IS CHANGE IN THE AIR.’
ARISE, My love, My beautiful companion, and RUN WITH ME TO THE HIGHER PLACE. For NOW IS THE TIME TO ARISE AND COME AWAY WITH ME.”

Today marks day 50 of the 50 Days of Prayer for Life and the ending of abortion, that I have been a part of. Last night was also the premiere of the new film, Unplanned, a true story about Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director’s dramatic transformation to loving God and exposing the spirit of abortion. We will also be hitting the halfway point in our 40-day Jesus Fast tomorrow, the day of Spring equinox. California is experiencing a Super Bloom of wildflowers after the fires swept through the state last year.

I truly believe that the Word of the Lord above is in response to the prayers, petitions, and fasting taking place globally for an ending of abortion and Ekballo, a resurgence of Life, an emergence of awakened Burning Ones, and a commission of laborers into the Harvest. In pondering on His word that He has heard the rumbling growls of the hungry and of the increase in 111 awakening signs, He spoke through my mouth, Ecclesiastes 11:1.

Ecclesiastes 11:1 (AMP)
“Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, [be diligently active, make thoughtful decisions], for you will find it after many days.”

Beloved, NOW is the hour in which the sacrifices and offerings of praise are being returned to us. NOW we will see the first fruits of love and obedience! I have shared on these things for the past year; but I feel such a strong pull in the spirit to surge through and charge forth! DO NOT RELENT OR GIVE IN, FOR WE ARE NOT THOSE WHO DRAW BACK IN FEAR UNTO DEATH! WE ARE THOSE WHO PRESS IN AND PRESS FORWARD TO THE FULL SALVATION, HEALING, AND DELIVERANCE OF THE SOUL!!! 

THE BREAKER IS HERE! DO YOU NOT PERCEIVE IT? 

SEASON’S CHANGE. WINTER IS OVER. THE RAINS OF HEAVEN ARE HERE. LIFE IS BURSTING FORTH EVERYWHERE. IT’S TIME TO AWAKEN, ARISE, AND ASCEND!!!

India: Governments Overthrown to Make Him Known

Recently, I was in a deep moment of worship and intercession with the Lord and was listening to a prayer set from a prayer room in our region. They began to pray and intercede for the launching of a global missions movement and prayed specifically over the nation of India. While praying myself, a song came forth from a deep place in the Spirit:

On the breath of the four winds, here come the flames| flames of fire, Your servants
to bring You a song, bring You a song, bring You a song of praise
They’re singing: Come on in, come on in|it’s time to ascend
to the hill of the Lord|to seek His face like never before
Upon this rock, I’ll establish a house|a house of praise for all your days
Can you hear them singing?|Come on in, come on in, it’s time to ascend

In this place, I was caught up in a vision to a place that I have been once before five years ago. I was in a dark room that was as if it was a negative space, like it was fully dark. When I glanced to the left, I saw an architect desk lit with an overhead lamp and Jesus was sitting at it. I walked over to Him from behind and He glanced back, smiled at me, and motioned me over with a nod; inviting me into His work space and in on what He was working on. Looking at the desk, I saw a large blueprint sheet with an outline of the nation of India. He held a pen in His hand and He was drawing on the nation.

It was unclear to me at first what He was doing, so I asked Him what He was working on and He said,

“I am overthrowing governments and kingdoms. Many will come toppling down; and I will build My House upon their ground. Governments built upon unstable foundations will crumble down, every power and principality in opposition to Me will follow suit and bow down to Me. I am more powerful than every single entity and worthless idol residing over the nation. Soon, you will see them fall down and all will see Me as the One Who alone is God!” 

Jesus then began drawing some more and there were three locations that stuck out on the picture of the nation. When I looked, I saw that the three places were north-central, west-central, and south-centrally located. I asked Him what it meant and He replied,

“A cord of three strands is not easily broken; and a unified body yields great power. I am about to shake things right-side up and the masses will see My glory as I tear down every idol opposed to Me. Watch as I destroy that which glorifies another and see as I establish high places in which the lost may come into My family. Yes, the orphans will find a home. I am raising up those who will establish and implement My values and principles in a nation that was once far from Me, but has turned to Me. You will remember the time so long ago in which My Truth was first received by you and you will honor it as a memorial across your land.

“As I uproot evil within your government, I will remove from power those in which have exploited your poor for riches’ gain; for I hate exploitation of My children. Every offering made to idols will return void as your carved images topple to the ground in pieces! This will be the sign of a divine purge taking place across the whole of the land.

“You will see a rise in the value of your rupees as I bring into play a front-runner to govern your nation. He will be a man you have not known and many will find themselves saying, ‘Who is this man? Where has he come from? He has risen from the low places and yet he has prestige and speaks with great power and authority.’ I have been at work within his heart and I have been creating a hunger and desire for Me within him.

“A righteous indignation will arise within him towards glory given to idols and he will begin in partnership with Me, to eradicate your land of enemy strongholds. It will be so foreign to you, for you have not seen such pure and righteous actions in ages.

“Curiosity will begin to sweep across the land at the power behind it. The saying, ‘curiosity killed the cat’, will carry a dual meaning; it will be a paradox. To the curious, they will receive life where they were once headed straight for death’s doors. The only cat dying here will be satan as his grip on the souls of this land are ripped from his hands, and he is sent plummeting to the pit.

“You will see life begin to spring forth from the soil of your land like never before. Where there were once dry bones littering your land, you will see a mass burial of all that has displayed death. Watch as the unthinkable takes place, where your waters were once polluted with death, a supernatural cleansing will come forth, bringing new life and restoration. You will drink of the well of salvation and of the rivers of living water and you will never thirst again!”

Isaiah 56:7 (NLT)
I will bring them to My holy mountain of Jerusalem and will fill them with joy in My house of prayer. I will accept their burnt offerings and sacrifices, because My Temple will be called a house of prayer for all nations.

Haggai 2:21-23 (MSG)
God’s Message came a second time to Haggai on that most memorable day, the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month: “Speak to Zerubbabel, the governor of Judah: ‘
I am about to shake up everything, to turn everything upside down and start over from top to bottom—overthrow governments, destroy foreign powers, dismantle the world of weapons and armaments, throw armies into confusion, so that they end up killing one another. And on that day’—this is God’s Message—’I will take you, O Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, as My personal servant and I will set you as a signet ring, the sign of My sovereign presence and authority. I’ve looked over the field and chosen you for this work.’” The Message of God-of-the-Angel-Armies.

2019: It’s All About Righteousness

While in a special service at our church on November 14, 2018, the Lord took me into an open vision in which He began to speak to me about what He was preparing for the coming year in 2019. I have stewed on the word and prayed about it since receiving it.

In the vision I saw a vast group of fiery young zealous ones who were burning ablaze for the Lord. Upon the Hill of the Lord, they began to form a line that extended beyond my eyes’ reach. As they lined up, I saw angels standing at an equipping station. In this equipping station were shovels organized in varying sizes. Each Burning One would take up their designated instrument, each sized according to the depth of their task, and would step over to another angel who would hand each one a banner. Upon the banner was written the word, “Righteousness.” As they took up their banner, with joy in their hearts, they began to run down the mountain in a purposeful, fiery descent. These were the trailblazers, the pioneers in what God is birthing. They charged forth to the farthest reaches of the earth, their assignments burning in their hearts. They refused to relent, draw back, or hunker down in the face of opposition and fear.

Upon their arrival, they took up their shovels and struck the soil of the nation, city, and region that they were assigned to. To some their digging was but for a moment with garden shovels, for their treasure was hidden in shallow soil. For others, they required large shovels to dig deep and labored greatly to bring it forth; and to others, God dispatched angels to man excavators in assistance to unearth what was hidden. They would not relent until they brought forth the relics of the nations, buried and long forgotten. The relics looked like swords, jewels and precious stones, crowns, crosses, various weapons, and many other items of great relevance and importance to the history of these nations.
When the Burning Ones retrieved the forgotten relics, they ran with great violence to return and restore the relics to their rightful places. Awakening was upon their lips and modeled in their actions. I could see them meeting with diplomats, presidents, religious leaders, individuals, and many others from outward significance to unrecognized chosen ones. The relics returned were a sign to the nations to awaken to their purpose, awaken out of slumber, and awaken to righteousness unto restoration. They served as a reminder of where the nation came from, their origin in the faith, and their original design. The Burning Ones called forth these nations to Return to Righteousness.
They then returned from whence they came to the Mountain of the Lord. In their ascent, they blazed a path up the mountain. They met at the top and began to worship the Lord in unity. As their songs arose like sweet-smelling incense to the Lord, the nations began to flock to the mountain, following the fiery trails seared into the wilderness way. Upon the peak took place a divine convergence of the Burning Ones and the Returning Ones. Together as they lifted their praise, they converged to into the Sent Ones.

This is what I heard the Lord say:
It’s time to Return to Righteousness. 2019 will be the awakening unto Righteousness. In this coming year, a trumpet will sound in the Heavenlies that will awaken My dormant ones. Out they will come, with a fire in their eyes and a fire burning in their bones. They will have awoken from their still state unto their prepared purpose. You will see them gather and with an accelerated ascent, they will shoot up like I have poured miracle grow on them. They will have been the ones that have been tested by the wait, tried by the fire, and emerge as the ones true to testify.
With thanksgiving upon their lips, they will run wearing robes of Righteousness. They will take up the tools for divine excavation. They will go forth, go out, and go up! As they go forth, they will carry awakening in their wings. The sound of their coming will shake the fallow ground and stir up age-old foundations — they will shake up old traditions and break apart every immovable idol. The thunder of their going out will resonate through the ages. It will be deafening to those who are far from are.
The ground trembles under their feet — a mighty army prepared and equipped for battle. Can you see them? My Burning Ones? Can you hear the rolling thunder of their arrival, as a great stampede of horses galloping upon the plains? If you haven’t, you soon will as they arrive. A sound quite like that has never been heard before and it will never be heard again! As they go out, they will charge forth with one heart and one purpose — to shake the nations awake and to set the ablaze.
They will come and begin their excavation process and they will be relentless to unearth Righteousness in the earth again. For behold, they will emerge with the Relics of a Righteousness in the nations. No matter the depth these treasures are located, these Sent Ones will not stop until they retrieve Righteousness and return it to blind and forgetful nations. Their message is this: “Return to Righteousness!” As they recover these lost relics, they will return them to their rightful place and prepare the way for the nations to return to Me. It will not be long before their message shifts from, “Return to Righteousness!” to “Righteousness Restored!”
As the nations come alive to the message/trumpet call of these catalysts, another trumpet will sound in the Heavenlies: “Time for the Ascent!” These catalysts have come down from My Holy Mountain to carry out My mission. As they did, they blazed a trail, a clear path for the nations to travel upon as they find their way back to Me again. Here, upon My Holy Mountain, they will join together and with one heart’s cry and seek My face.”

“Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come, and the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you. For in fact, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness will cover the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you [Jerusalem] and His glory and brilliance will be seen on you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes around you and see; they all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from far away, and your daughters will be looked after at their side.”

Romans 1:17 (AMP)
For in the Gospel the righteousness of God is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed in a way that awakens more faith]. As it is written and forever remains written, ‘The just and upright shall live by faith.’”

Luke 12:49 (AMP)
“I have come to set the earth on fire. And how I long for every heart to be already ablaze with this fiery passion for God!”

Luke 12:49-51 (MSG) 
“I’ve come to start a fire on this earth—how I wish it were blazing right now! I’ve come to change everything, turn everything rightside up—how I long for it to be finished! Do you think I came to smooth things over and make everything nice? Not so. I’ve come to disrupt and confront!”

To Ascend is to Offend

This morning, my husband and I were discussing a post a well-known prophet had made recently about the opposition he has been facing with his prophecies being blocked on social media as well as pages being made by ill-intentioned people defaming him, calling him a false prophet, and tearing down his family and ministry. I know by observing the fruit of this prophet’s life as well as receiving similar words from the Lord that he is the real deal. I shared about my thoughts when I saw that post, the real reason why people resort to these destructive, misleading, underhanded tactics.

When a true fiery, bold, faith-filled, undignified man or woman of God steps into all that the Lord has destined for them, all the demons in hell tremble; for their impending doom is at hand. We see this again and again throughout the Bible just before demons are expelled and people are set free. I have never forgotten a word shared by YWAMer, Amy Sollars, “The dogs of doom stand at the door of destiny.”

The enemy would like nothing more than to keep this bold lover from stepping into their destiny; but when the enemy fails to do so, he resorts to defamation in order to cause mistrust. This leads to mistrust of the word of the Lord, which has the potential to not only harm the target but also anyone following their ministry.

The enemy will always try to cause an explosion filled with shrapnel to cause a high casualty rate. We have seen this recently through the attack against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The demonic resistance to the will of God has exploded to such a high proportions that thousands from all over the world practicing in pagan witchcraft have come together planning a public hex tomorrow against not only Kavanaugh, but many others. There is truly a war at hand folks, and we mustn’t treat any of it lightly. Souls are at stake.

Unfortunately those new to the faith, unlearned in the Word and voice of the Lord, and even unbelievers become the victims, of which many fall away and never return to the church. Contrary to popular belief, these attacks are not focused on the man or woman of God walking in obedience. The ultimate goal of the enemy has always been to cause God’s creation to doubt His character. If he is given authority to do so, he can lead God’s people astray. This very thing took place in the Garden. He never had a right to govern the earth, so he deceptively caused those endued with said authority, Adam and Eve, to doubt God’s character. When they fell, they exchanged their crown and dominion over to satan and received punishment and separation from God.

This was never God’s original design. That is why He sent Jesus.

When Jesus died on the cross weighted with the horrific, disgusting, unholy, and eternally damning sins of all of His creation, He burst through the gates of hell and the grave, ripped the keys out of the hands of the condemned one, and rose to life again, victorious; shattering the wall of separation between us and The One True God, The Mighty One of Israel.

While mulling this over with Jeremiah, I told him that I thought it would be a good thing in some ways to be like this prophet and so many others receiving such opposition. My reason for this being: if you are being opposed so greatly, you must be doing something right, or the enemy would never feel threatened or have a reason to stop you from ascending. 

In stating this, my heart’s cry and a prophetic utterance came forth from me saying, “I want to Ascend! The higher you Ascend, the more you’re gonna offend!”

This is true in every fashion. Jesus had offended, angry, murderous mobs, and defaming liars following Him everywhere grasping for an opportunity to silence Him. Ultimately, these liars are the ones who cast Him forth in an unjust execution, crying, “Crucify Him!”

In the physical when ascending a high place, there is an unseen line at a specific elevation called a “snake line” in which no snake is able to surpass or survive in. In the pioneering days, settlers would seek high ground; though it be less fertile soil for crops than the lush valleys, they saw the necessity for the safety and security of the high place. Though the terrain require greater strength to trek and cultivate, it was worth the sacrifice. Above the snake line is pure air and water. Purity, untainted by the sins of the low places. People residing above the snake line were healthier in every way.

Ascending is not for the faint of heart, the weighted down baggage carriers, the complacent, those stained with sin, the unforgiving, the unbelievers. These will not survive the journey in ascension. 

This is evident with the Lord when you look through Exodus 19 and 24. Moses was the only one allowed to ascend the mountain of the Lord, and God instructed him to place a boundary line that no one unholy was allowed to cross at the base of the mountain. Moses alone made the trek back and forth to convene with God on the mountaintop, and then descend to deliver His message to the Israelites. Eventually, God told him to bring Aaron up, for Aaron had consecrated himself and proven himself worthy.
Chapter 24 begins with God instructing Moses to bring Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and Israel’s seventy elders up. Through this time, the Israelites have seen the Glory of God descend upon the peak where their leader ascended.

Fear of the Lord struck those willing and hungry enough for His manifest Presence and they put off their garbage, cleansed and consecrated themselves to be prepared to ascend. In the ascent, they saw God and dined with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! 

9“Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel climbed up the mountain.  10 There they saw the God of Israel… 
11 And though these nobles of Israel gazed upon God, He did not destroy them. In fact, they ate a covenant meal, eating and drinking in His presence! 12 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me on the mountain. Stay there, and I will give you the tablets of stone on which I have inscribed the instructions and commands so you can teach the people.” 13 So Moses and his assistant Joshua set out, and Moses climbed up the mountain of God.
15 Then Moses climbed up the mountain, and the cloud covered it. 16 And the glory of the Lord settled down on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days. On the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from inside the cloud. 17 To the Israelites at the foot of the mountain, the glory of the Lord appeared at the summit like a consuming fire. 18 Then Moses disappeared into the cloud as he climbed higher up the mountain. He remained on the mountain forty days and forty nights.”

It’s time to GO UP! It’s time to GO UP into the Glory Zone!

It’s time to strip off all of the weights, strongholds, secret sins, unforgiveness, offenses, and depravity in our hearts to GO UP, to ASCEND! You cannot take these snares with you and if you choose to keep them and remain in them, you very well may find yourself in the valley of constriction as the python spirit chokes the life out of you. 

The fire may strike fear in you at the base of the mountain, but which fire would you choose to pass through? The Refiner’s Fire, the Fire of Holiness and into the manifest Presence and Glory of God on the mountaintop; or the fire of eternal separation from the One Who sought you and called you higher? Will you ascend higher and higher as Moses did and abide there in His glorious Presence; or will you remain outside the wall, outside your tent because what you see now seems so much better?

I assure you beloved, to ascend is to see His face and not perish. However, only dead men may see His face. We must first die to sin and our flesh before we ascend into the Holy of Holies. It is then and only then, that we may find ourselves in the wrap around Presence of The Holy God!

Zechariah 2:5 (AMP)
“For I,” declares the Lord, “will be a wall of fire around her [protecting her from enemies], and I will be the glory in her midst.”

The NOW Harvest: Part 1

Two mornings ago in my 5 a.m. groggy state, I felt a stirring in my spirit of what was on the Lord’s heart that morning. As I sleepily tried to focus and clutched my authentic Indian Masala Chai (of which we adore and keep readily on hand because it reminds us of ‘home’) for joy and warmth from this sudden and brisk change in weather, I turned to John 4 that we were reading from while discipling a friend the evening before. I had that night realized something that I had never knowingly noticed before. I will be sharing about this in a two part word of which the second half should be up soon, so be on the look out for it! Now, on to the meat!

The first half of John 4 is telling the account of Jesus’ interaction with the Samaritan woman at the well. Just as Jesus revealed to the Samaritan woman that He was the Messiah that the world had been searching for, His disciples returned to Him with lunch. Instead of being intrigued and interested in what was taking place in that very moment, they were distracted and possibly even offended to find Him not only conversing with a woman, which was culturally unacceptable in those times; but more so with a woman who was not a Jew.

After the woman ran off to town to tell everyone about Who she had just encountered, the disciples urged Jesus to eat the lunch that they had brought. Jesus’ response is, 34My food (‘nourishment’ in NLT) is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to completely finish His work. 35Do you not say, ‘It is still four months until the harvest comes?’ Look, I say to you, raise your eyes and look at the fields and see, they are white for harvest.” The first thing I want to point out is what Jesus said in verse 34. Jesus and His disciples had been traveling for quite some time leading up to this and when He stopped at Jacob’s well, it says that He was weary from the walk. It only makes sense that after a strenuous, exhausting activity that one should drink and eat to regain strength for the journey. Instead, Jesus responded that His nourishment comes from Heaven, doing the will of the One Who sent Him and completing His work in the earth.

My question for you is, do you like to fast? I never enjoyed it and it definitely felt like dying to self; for I realized how much I enjoy chocolate and meat. Jesus told me about five months ago to begin intentionally and frequently fasting if I truly desired to see many things I had been seeking Him in prayer about as well as for global revival to come to full fruition. I will be honest and tell you, I was disobedient up until Jeremiah went to Southeast Asia two months ago. I was caught up in the ‘now’ nourishment and sustenance. I am so grateful that He is such a gracious and patient Papa and sees where we are and will also come to meet us there and call us upward.

Before Jeremiah left, He gently reminded me of His last call and with a great desire and hunger for Him and His will in Asia, I fasted for the duration of Jeremiah’s leave and forsook my ‘good’ chores to sit at His feet. Let me tell you, in my ‘dying to self’, I came alive in the manifest Spirit of God and encountered more of Jesus and heavenly activity than in the culmination of my walk with the Lord. I will not be fake and pretend that since then I do not struggle in my days of consistent fasting, nor do presume to make it perfectly through every day without fail, whether intentional or not. I do recognize there was a special grace upon those first weeks; but fasting is warfare. I will, however, say that I have found a realm far beyond any earthly substance that would sustain. I now understand what Jesus meant when He said what He did. 

Recently, I have noticed the purity of my son, Azariah’s bold faith in increasing levels. It has been his practice for about a year and half of praying himself before bed after we do. Over time, his prayers have become interesting, precious, spirit-led, and awakening as we have seen him grow and his love for Jesus increase. Since Jeremiah returned from Southeast Asia in which they saw 4,612 souls reaped in Jesus’ name into the Kingdom of Heaven, we have faced varying levels of attack and warfare. It is no mystery to us for we know the enemy is angry and threatened at our obedience in seeking His face and doing His will. We do not question where these trials originate, for we stirred up and ransacked hell in warfare over every one of those souls.

Two weeks ago, I had to take Elam, our 19 month old to get 5 stitches on his nose after a freak accident and I was emotionally worn. The enemy took the next day to hit me at every turn, including enduring a freak accident and injury myself. That night while experiencing a unwarranted attack of vertigo while praying with Azariah in bed, I encountered the love of the Father through my three year old and gained much understanding in His ways.

Azariah’s nightly questions before bed are, “How was your good day today?” and “What was your favorite part?” Truthfully, I responded, “Mommy did not have a good day today, baby; nor do I have a favorite part.” I began to explain why, including Elam’s accident the night before. He responded, “I’m sorry, Mommy. I’m so sorry.” I asked why. He stated, “I should’ve prayed for you when the cheerios spilled.” (Right after my own accident, in pain, I got the boys a snack to try and distract them as I cleaned it up. As I handed Elam his cup, the container of cheerios crashed in a massively dispersed mess on the kitchen floor. Azariah ran in upset thinking he wouldn’t get a snack now…never fear, there’s another box.)

Shocked at his statement in bed, I told him it wasn’t his fault. He said again that he should’ve prayed for me because I was hurt and having a hard day. He then proceeded to hold me, rub my back, and pray the most powerful and precious prayer over me. As I wept an ugly cry, the love of God entered this bubble and invaded every place of pain, brokenness, anxiety, and fear; completely uprooting and replacing them with His love. It was then as I reflected what we are really fighting for, what we are really fasting for…a whole other dimension. This was the nourishment that I desperately needed. Each of these things are not to be done out of selfishness, but out of a whole-hearted, genuine desire to see the totality of His Kingdom invade the earth; and to see the coming generations operating in the fullness of the Spirit and power, from the youngest of age. These things can only be done by first doing it yourself, then setting an example for those coming after you to follow. THIS is true discipleship. THIS will change the world. The battle and the sacrifice is worth it.

(NLT) 35“But I say, WAKE UP and look around. The fields are ALREADY ripe for harvest.” (emphasis added)  The harvest is truly RIPE all around us, if we will only WAKE UP and look at what is right in front of us. The hearts of our children are ripe. If we do it right, if we will seek His face and ascend the hill of the Lord, our children will see where we are going and the why behind it; and they will develop the desire to follow right behind, for the prize of Jesus here on earth will be the why behind their ‘yes!”

Soon, I will share the “The NOW Harvest: Part 2” with the rest of the revelation from John 4 as well as the Word the Lord spoke to me that morning while resting in His wonderful Presence.

I leave you with these final reflections:
What are you willing to give up in your ascent to the mountain of the Lord?
All of the baggage can sure weigh you down and prevent you from receiving the full nourishment needed to complete the will of the Lord for your life and in the earth. I implore you to be seeking out ways to be intentional in sitting at His feet in ever-increasing heights, receiving your replenishment, furthering the Gospel and discipling those around you, especially the children in your life!
