5780 -Arise Mouthpieces of Righteousness!

Yesterday began Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year 5780. While in my time with the Lord early yesterday morning, He spoke a truly exciting word that I realized afterwards was a word for this new year. I began to see what He was speaking taking form as I was caught up into a vision of its manifestation in the earth. Great fire filled my spirit as well as determination to see it come to pass.

I heard the Lord saying:

This New Year brings with it a light and the glory that will shine bright. For from the darkness a great light will shine and those who have been like the blind up on the walls feeling their way around will find their way home again.

As I bellow My name out across the expanse of the heavens in this time, My name will wash a multitude of sins as My blood cleanses and renews.

Truly, I am releasing a wave of divine recompense and it will command and demand a swift change that will turn things around. As you come to and near the light, you will find yourself arising higher upon My Holy Hill and as I roar forth My decree, you will see a swift change and turn.

I will place My decree upon your lips and My roar in your lungs to be My Mouthpieces of Righteousness in the land. You will march forth from My Holy Hill and with lips emblazoned, well roar forth My righteousness in the earth.

A mighty army is arising to take nations and generations into My glory for My glory!

I say, “Where are they who would run with torch in hand and run into the darkness, becoming the embodiment of My Light of Life? Where are the ones who would give up their very lives for this great cause? Where are they who have seen My gaze and whose eyes have become seared with My fire?! Where are they, who all they would see would be marked with My fire?! It is these ones who will not see things as they are, but as they will be and will decree and declare them into existence. Great glory marks the path of these ones who will stop at nothing to bring nations with them to My Holy Mountain.”

As He spoke this word, I felt such a strong pull in the spirit that we would see unprecedented waves of souls in this coming year. That the sound of His roar would suddenly shake the scales off the eyelids of the prodigals and they would come running towards the light He has placed in the hands of His Burning Ones. Like a lighthouse set upon a high place in the deep darkness of the night, the Light of Life would pierce through the darkness and beckon Salvation Come!

He has cultivated a generation of shofars in the wilderness in the past season, who will now emerge to bellow forth the roaring blast of His coming and all will see, hear, and know that the time for returning is now!

Isaiah 42:5-9 (TPT)
Here are the words of the true God, Yahweh, the One Who created the starry heavens and stretched them out. He is the One Who formed the earth and filled it with life. He gives breath to every person and spirit to everyone everywhere.
“I, Yahweh, have commissioned you in righteousness to succeed. I will take your hand in love watch over you. I will give you as a covenant for the people, a walking-light to the nations. Your mission is to open blind eyes, to set prisoners free from dark dwellings, and to open prison doors to those who are held by darkness. I am Yahweh; that is My name. I will not give My glory to another god nor my renown to idols. Don’t you see that what I have prophesied has come to pass? And now I am foretelling the future. I declare it to you before it sprouts up.”

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!

For too long many have been delayed and disarrayed in the previous season and the Lord is saying in this New Year, “NO MORE!!!” He is thrusting forth the doors of delay and loosing destiny upon His Bride; everything stolen will be returned with interest. You thought you were in the breaking in the last season; but I say to you, it was only the making!

Isaiah 42:13
Yahweh goes out to battle like a hero and stirs up His passion and zeal like a mighty warrior. Yes, His God-shout is a mighty battle cry; He will triumph heroically over all His foes.

Isaiah 42:16
“I will walk the blind by an unknown way and guide them on paths they’ve never traveled. I will smooth their difficult road and make their dark mysteries bright with light. These are things I will do for them, for I will never abandon My beloved ones. “

Isaiah 60:17b-18 (TPT)
I will install peace and prosperity as your government and righteousness as your overseer. Threats of violence will no longer be heard in your land, nor will destruction and ruin be found within your borders. You will name your walls Salvation and your gates Praise.

As He called forth those whose eyes would be seared with His fire, I was reminded of the total solar eclipse that took place two years ago and the dangers of gazing upon the sun as the moon shifted away from it. Many were left with permanent solar burns on their retinas. Wherever they looked, they would see the shape of the sun when its image was seared into their vision. As we gaze upon The Son, our vision will be seared with His  fire and we will see everything through the lense of His holiness where we will then prophesy it into existence. In this time, there is a special authority being released into the earth to decree and declare and see a swift manifestation unto fruition!

Isaiah 60:19-22
“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 lease 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!”

Advance 22/40

You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!

Well done!  We are now past the halfway mark, past Daniel’s precedent of 21 days, and beginning week 4 of The 40.  Do not waver! Do not falter! Press into Jesus, and be propelled into the next level with Him!!

This morning, I felt The Lord highlight one word, “Advance“.  This word means a lot to me for different reasons, but one of the reasons is this is an official military term, in my mind at least.  As we move forward into uncharted territory, God is leading and guiding.  He has gone before us to direct us in the right way we should go (John 10:4). Yesterday, the focus was on Touching The Kingdom, and the seeking of direction and revelation through humility, hunger, repentance, prayer, and fasting.  This should be our way of life until we receive our orders.   Then, we must “Advance” into all God has for us.  

Even understanding a proper definition of advance gives us a clue into what God is speaking to us today. 

Advance: 

  • Move forward in a purposeful way (Help us all to move forward with Your plans and in Your purposes Lord!)
  • Accelerate growth or progress of (We desire to progress and grow in You, Lord)
  • Raise to a higher rank (Thank you for raising us up to higher ranks in The Kingdom as we faithfully carry out our assignments at the level we are now.)
  • To lift up (Lift us up into heavenly realms with You)
  • Bring forward in time (Bring us all forward in time that we may be mature believers on mission with You!)
  • My personal definition would be the effective assisting in hastening a process or bringing about a desired end.  May we all be advanced in our own lives, and be used to advance The Kingdom of God today!

    In the Word, we can see this happening throughout the entire Bible, but we will focus on what is taking place in Acts 13.  The setting of this passage is the rapid growth of the church.  If you remember, they were first called Christians at Antioch, literally meaning “little Christ”.  The gospel is being proclaimed, and persecution has taken the life of James the apostle.  This was the first of the apostles to be martyred.  Peter was set to be killed as well, but through constant prayer, God miraculously delivers Him.  This is where we pick up in our reading.  

    The church is at a pivotal point in history. They must come to a decision if the persecution and death is too much and they should calm down in what they are doing, or if they should continue to advance The Kingdom in spite of all this.  

    Acts 13:1-2 Now in the church that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 

    The response of the early church to the persecution and death of James and near martyrdom of Peter is to gather together and minister to The Lord. 

    How was this done? In Acts 2:42, 47 and 6:4 we find some clues: continue steadfastly in apostles doctrine, fellowship, breaking of bread, prayer, praising God, and ministry of The Word.  In this passage we see, they also fasted.  Fellowship, worship, prayer, and fasting are literally ministry to The Lord. As they ministered to The Lord, Holy Spirit revealed what they were to do next.  

    It is interesting, they did not have a vision-casting meeting. They did not form a committee to talk about business. They did not try to figure out the most logical business model to follow. They gathered the leaders to worship, prayer, and fasting.  It is a sad fact that in many churches today, call a church business meeting and everyone shows up, but call a church prayer meeting more crickets show up than people.  However, if you call a prayer meeting without food and call a people to fast, this is like what happened in the early church. Only hungry people allowed.  This is where Holy Spirit brought revelation of what was to happen next.  

    When Holy Spirit released this revelation, they did not end the meeting and say lets get to work. Why? Because this was not the point of the meeting.  They were there to worship God with everything they had to give.  As a result, when they received revelation this is what they did:

    Vs. 3 Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away.

    They continued in worship, prayer, and thanksgiving. What Holy Spirit revealed in a time of worship, prayer, and fasting was commissioned and sent out by worship, prayer, and fasting.  The focus was ministering to God and the commissioning and sending out of Barnabas and Saul for the advancement of The Kingdom was part of this ministering to God.  No man or even church was glorified in the sending out of these men. 

    Verse 4 begins with “So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit…”  There was no doubt in anyone’s mind that this was a work of Holy Spirit for the advance of The Kingdom.  This is before Saul had prove himself to the church.  He is still in the care of Barnabas and there is probably still those who do not fully trust him.  That did not matter when Holy Spirit had set him apart to send him out. In the very next chapter Saul is violently persecuted and stoned. The strength knowing Holy Spirit had called him and sent him out enabled him to return to the very cities that this took place.  

    My encouragement for us today is that as we gather together daily to worship, pray, and fast, whether together in body or spirit, Holy Spirit will bring wisdom, understanding, and revelation that only comes from Him.  As He does, may we all be strengthened with might to advance The Kingdom and walk in what He has called us to.  Nothing can hold you back from advancing to the next level with Him if you are living and walking as His partner.

    Practical –

    • Ask for revelation of how you can minister to God today
    • As you minister to Him, seek wisdom, revelation, and understanding that only comes from Him
    • As He reveals, ask for the strength and ability to obey
    • Continue in Worship and ministry to Him
    • Obey all He directs you to do

    Be blessed with the ability to truly advance The Kingdom in partnership with Holy Spirit. May you receive wisdom, understanding, revelation and might as you minister to Holy Spirit.  May this propel you to the next level with Him!

    Press Through to Breakthrough 19/40

    You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!

    Here we go again!  Another awesome day in The Lord.  There may not be anything special to day 19 for you, but God has a special reward for those who diligently seek Him.  He has your reward!  He is the reward! He has more on day 19 to give than yesterday, and I pray a special outpouring of His glory and grace to continue in strength, life, and provision today!

    Hallelujah!

    God is good and continually blesses our mouths with good thing.  Whether we are eating or not, He nourishes our soul and spirit with true manna from heaven.  Every single one of us is seeking Him in prayer and fasting for a reason and a purpose.  I have encouraged you to make a list of things to be praying and declaring over the length of the fast.  Do not neglect to pray for these things.  On my list are the impossible things, supernatural healing, wisdom from heaven, open doors, souls, nations, freedom and breakthrough.  Do not allow discouragement to dishearten you from pressing in and continuing to lift these things up in prayer to the Lord. 

    We do not see all that is taking place in the spiritual realm, but we know this:

    James 5:16-18 tremendous power is released through the passionate, heartfelt prayer of a godly believer! 17 Elijah was a man with human frailties, just like all of us, but he prayed and received supernatural answers. He actually shut the heavens over the land so there would be no rain for three and a half years! 18 Then he prayed again and the skies opened up over the land so that the rain came again and produced the harvest.
    Passionate, diligent, earnest prayers from a believer walking in righteousness have the power to change things that happen in the spiritual realm.  We discuss this more in “Shifting the Heavens“.  What is does not mention in this passage is that Elijah had to go before the Lord and pray seven times before He began to see the fruit of his prayer for rain to return to the land (1 Kings 18:42-46).  Elijah’s powerful prayers were not immediately answered.  He had to press through to breakthrough.  He had to get past his doubts, fear, worries, and seeming lack of power to experience the blessing that God had promised would come.  He had to look to the promise and press in until he saw fulfillment of that promise.

    Later, we see an interesting story taking place in Judges 20 that demonstrates the point even more fully.  During a time when Israel was without a leader, every man did what was right in his own eyes.  Here, the city of Gibeah, of the tribe of Benjamin, had committed an atrocity.  Their fleshly desire to abuse and injure a Levite led them to instead rape and murder his female slave.  Instead of repenting, the entire tribe of Benjamin “backs their boys” and goes out to war against the rest of Israel who is coming against them as retribution for turning from The Lord and committing this atrocity.

    Israel asked The Lord if they should war against Benjamin and who should go first.  God speaks for them to go and put Judah first.  Following God’s direction, 22,000 men of Israel are slain during Israel’s defeat that day.  Israel goes to God again and asks if they should return to the battle.  God says go, and at the instruction of God, 18,000 more people are slaughtered and Israel defeated.  Israel, God’s people fighting for justice and righteousness, are sorely defeated because they listened and obeyed God’s words explicitly.  

    Why was this happening?  Why were they defeated? What was taking place?

    Twice, Israel went through devastating tragedies and they were doing right.  They were obeying the law.  Whatever else was happening, there was tremendous discouragement was taking place over their defeat.  This is their response:

     

    Judges 20:26-28 Then all the children of Israel, that is, all the people, went up and came to the house of God and wept. They sat there before the Lord and fasted that day until evening… So the children of Israel inquired of the Lord… saying, “Shall I yet again go out to battle against the children of my brother Benjamin, or shall I cease?”  And the Lord said, “Go up, for tomorrow I will deliver them into your hand.”
    Again, the people of Israel return to the Lord.  This time, it says that all the people came to The Lord with repentance, fasting and prayer.  We do not know if all the people were unified before, but now, they know they need a breakthrough and only God can help them.  Their military prowess has been overwhelmingly defeated and only God can give them the breakthrough.  In unified hearts, prayers, and fasting, they follow the instructions of the The Lord and 30 of their people die in the battle the next day, but 25,100 of the tribe of Benjamin are defeated.  Whether the change was in their hearts, mind, or actions, they finally come into line with The Lord and gain their victory and breakthrough.  

    This is my encouragement for today, it is in repentance, fasting, and prayer that our hearts fully come into line with God, His plans, and His purposes.  Whether the change takes place in us or in the spiritual realm, we cannot always understand or know.  What I do know is that we must press through to breakthrough.  A butterfly must struggle to be released from its chrysalis or it will never have the strength to fly in the power it has been given.  It will languish and die if released by some other unseen force beyond its own struggle.  Through the struggles, it is empowered to breakthrough and fly.  May this word be manifest in us today.  Through your struggling and warring with God in the secret place, may you press through and gain the strength and sustenance to breakthrough and walk in the next levels with Him.
    Jesus, help me to never give up on following You and what You have called me to do, say, pray for, or walk in.  I trust You to complete Your promises even as You strengthen me to press through every hindrance into the destiny You have designed for me.
    Practical –

    • Ask Holy Spirit to bring to remembrance the promises spoken to you that you may not be pressing in to see take place at this moment.
    • Ask for a renewal of strength to press in for the breakthrough in these areas
    • Ask for His patient perseverance to press through the fear, worry, unbelief, and other obstacles
    • Continue to press through for the breakthrough

    I bless you to receive the power and strength of The Almighty to press through that the breakthrough may take place in you and the lives of all those around you.

    Empowering The Angelic 12/40

    You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!

    As we proceed into day 12, I want to continue to encourage you to make special time, maybe even some extra time, to pray and seek the face of The Lord.  Often, we can get into routines in life, even with fasting, that cause us to pass over the true blessings that come.  I remind you, fasting is never mentioned in the Bible without prayer, humility, and repentance unless it is demonic fasting.  Try fasting a little sleep in the morning and getting up a little earlier to spend special time seeking The Lord.

    We do not realize the true power we have here on earth.  Originally, dominion of the earth was given to Adam.  Adam forfeited this power to the enemy when he sinned in the garden, but Jesus gained the power and authority back after rising from the dead.  Through Him, we now have all power and authority in heaven and on earth.  Because of this, we have the ability to empower angelic forces.  Let’s take a look at this passage:

    Daniel 9:3-4 Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, “O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments,

    Here, Daniel has come before The Lord in repentance, humility, fasting, and prayer.  He is crying out for revelation for what is about to happen to him and his people.  He comes in the right way with a humble heart and begins to seek God.  Vs. 5-19 record his humble prayer of repentance for his people even though he is probably the most faithful and righteous of his people at the time.  He owns the sin of his people, confesses it, and repents.  Immediately following this, an interesting thing happens. 

    Daniel 9:20-21 Now while I was speaking, praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God, 21 yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering.  

    Gabriel, the messenger, comes to deliver the answer to the what Daniel is seeking.  What I would like to point out is the passage being caused to fly swiftly, some translations may say extremely exhausted.  Whatever is taking place in the Heavens, we find out later there is war taking place in the spiritual, Gabriel is worn out.  However, he is caused to receive strength to bring that which Daniel is seeking.  Daniel is not praying to empower the angelic, but his prayers of humility and repentance, aligned with the heart of God, give the angelic messenger strength to bring forth that which he was praying for.

    Do your prayers empower the angelic? Are you seeking God with humility and repentance?

    You the child of God have special access to The Father.  You have the right to come boldly before The Throne of Grace. You have been given every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm.  However, you cannot obtain these by works or spiritual pride.  You must come humbly in repentance, fasting and prayer to receive all that The Father has for you.  I will leave you with this scripture to reflect upon:

    James 5:16 The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. 

    Humility, repentance, fasting, and prayer should be part of the lifestyle of the people of God.  As we walk out this lifestyle, our prayer will be heartfelt and persistent and we will truly be the righteous believers we were called to be.  Our prayers have great power and are empowering the angelic for the work they were designed to do.

    Jesus, I desire to come to You continually with a heart of humility and repentance.  Because of Your blood, I enter boldly into Your presence and receive the power and authority that has been given to me.  Help me to live a lifestyle that will allow You to release the angelic to work in my life.

    Practical –

    • Commit some extra time to seek the Lord during The 40
    • Ask Holy Spirit to reveal specific areas, for you to bring before Him in confession and repentance.
    • Ask Him for wisdom, understanding, revelation, and might.

    Be blessed to continue to walk in a lifestyle of humility and the heart of God.  May you forever be empowering the angelic as you come boldly and rightly into His presence.

    The Kairos Moment for the Emerging and Enlisting: Draft of the Burning Ones

    A time ago while in prayer, the Lord began to speak an incredible word for now and the coming days. As I typed it up, I began to feel the Lord impress upon my spirit how truly important this word was and He put forth an urgency in the spirit of the time in which we have now entered into. He began to impress upon me the importance of calling a world-wide fast again for this kairos moment in time; but He would not let me share the word or call the fast in the time that I recorded the word.

    I spent the next month praying about His timing and then my fiery husband, Jeremiah, came to me and said that he felt God calling for a 40-day fast that was to begin on August 26th – October 4th. There was my answer. I also did not feel led to release this word yet and felt that Jeremiah was to be the one to call the fast. After continued prayer, I feel the time is now to share the word. Jeremiah has been posting encouragements and prayer/activation focuses daily (which can be found in the “Propel Fast” tab in the categories on the right; and more info on the Propel Fast here).


    I heard the voice of the Lord saying:

    “Doors of great proportion are open to usher in great waves.  Do you hear them now? Do you hear their sound crashing against the shore of arrival? Do you see them rolling in? Surely, the Son’s reflection will be seen upon the surface of the deep and He will have His reward!

    WHERE ARE THEY WHO WOULD CATCH THE WAVE AND RIDE UPON IT WITH ME?!

    WHERE ARE THEY WHO WOULD RISE UP AND TAKE HOLD OF THIS DIVINE INVITATION TO BE A PART OF SOMETHING GREATER AND MORE ASTOUNDING THAN ANYTHING EVER SEEN?!

    Do you see My Son leading the charge and leading the way? Yes, I am issuing a decree across the nations, a draft, calling on My Burning Ones to come out of their caves of isolation and the wilderness of preparation!

    Now! Now is the time for the emerging and the enlisting!

    My eyes search from the east to the west, the north to the south and everything in between for the ‘YES’ men whose hearts are ablaze and who are prepared to abandon it all and give their lives for the completion of this mission.

    Come forth! Come out of your hiding! Come step into your purpose and fulfill your call to fulfill the deep desire of My heart!

    Your weapons are on the shore of decision, awaiting their retrieval as you jump into the waters. Surely, D-Day is upon you and not a single stone will remain unturned as the waves crash upon the shores of salvation!

    Are you ready? I have given you all you need to be ready…Are YOU ready?

    It is bigger than you think! More vast than you know! Here come the waves!!!”


    I have heard the Lord use the phrase D-Day before, particularly one year ago. I questioned then what He meant by it and began to research it; so when He spoke this phrase again to me, I had a sense of what He was declaring into the atmosphere with this word.

    D-DAY: “In the military, D-Day is the day on which a combat attack or operation is to be initiated, the unnamed day on which an operation commences or is due to commence, the day on which an important operation is to begin or a change to take effect.”

    I continued to research and process His phrasings, particularly in regards to military language and discovered this:

    DRAFT: “Conscription is commonly known as the draft, but the concepts are not exactly the same. Conscription is the compulsory induction of individuals into the Armed Services, whereas the draft is the procedure by which individuals are chosen for conscription.”

    ENLISTMENT: “An enlistment is the period of time for which one is committed to military service.” “Enlisted Soldiers are the most important part of the Army structure. They carry out orders and complete missions. As a Soldier, you will be challenged to accomplish tasks that will put your abilities to the test, and you will discover talents that you never dreamed you had.”

    Beloved, we have transitioned into a kairos moment in time where God is extending the invitation to join His Army to take down demonic strongholds and principalities over people, families, cities, regions, and nations.

    THE TIME FOR WAR ON INACTION IS NOW!

    If you thought you could escape the draft into holiness by hiding in the shadows and caves of sin, you are gravely mistaken. This is a war over souls that we are talking about. If we are not for the Lord in everything, then we are His enemies. He is not looking for half-hearted soldiers who will bail the moment things get intense. He is looking for abandoned warriors set on completing the mission set before them…AT ANY COST. You have to be cleansed and made holy to be a part of this Army. His Holy Spirit will not flow through an unholy vessel.

    His secret operation is kicking into effect. Who will commit to this time of empowerment to overthrow the kingdom of darkness?! Who will die to self that breakthrough would come not just in our own lives, but our families, government, and in the nations?!

    Joel 3:9-16 (NLT)
    “Say to the nations far and wide: ‘GET READY FOR WAR! Call out your best warriors. Let all your fighting men advance for the attack. Hammer your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears.

    TRAIN EVEN YOUR WEAKLINGS TO BE WARRIORS. COME QUICKLY, all you nations everywhere. Gather together in the valley.’ 

    And now, O Lord, CALL OUT YOUR WARRIORS! ‘LET THE NATIONS BE CALLED TO ARMS. LET THEM MARCH to the valley of Jehoshaphat. There I, the Lord, will sit to pronounce judgment on them all.

    SWING THE SICKLE, FOR THE HARVEST IS RIPE! COME, TREAD THE GRAPES, FOR THE WINEPRESS IS FULL. THE STORAGE VATE ARE OVERFLOWING…’ 

    THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS ARE WAITING IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION. THERE THE DAY OF THE LORD WILL SOON ARRIVE….The Lord’s voice will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth will shake. But the Lord will be a refuge for His people, a strong fortress for the people of Israel.” 

    Joel 1:14-15 (MSG) says to “Declare a holy fast…get the leaders together, round up everyone in the country. Get them into God’s Sanctuary for serious prayer to God…The Strong God has arrived. This is serious business!”

    Joel gives us an empowering picture of what this Army of the Lord, His Burning Ones looks like in Joel 2:1-11:

    “Like dawn light moving over the mountains, a huge army is coming. There’s never been anything like it and never will be again.” … “A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is like the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; surely nothing shall escape them.” … they charge forward like warhorses…they leap along the mountaintops…like the roar of fire sweeping across a field of stubble, or like a mighty army moving into battle.”

    Their enemies flee with terror. “They run like warriors; they climb the wall like soldiers.” … “The invaders charge. They climb barricades. Nothing stops them. Each soldier does what he’s told, so disciplined, so determined. They don’t get in each other’s way. Each one knows his job and does it. Undaunted and fearless, unswerving, unstoppable. They storm the city, swarm its defenses, loot the houses, breaking down doors, smashing windows. They arrive like an earthquake, sweep through like a tornado.

    “The Lord utters His voice before His army, for His camp is very great, because strong and powerful is he who [obediently] carries out His word…”

    Truly the Harvest is Ripe! Thousands upon thousands are waiting in the valley of decision, awaiting the day of their visitation unto salvation!

    Who will be the warriors advancing forth, trampling foes and ransacking enemy encampments, taking back possession of what was stolen?!

    Who will be the boots on the ground who refuse to quit, give in, relent, or back down to bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth?!

    Join us on this journey! If this is you, then welcome to the Burning Ones Army! Greater things are to come! Let us know of your commitment so we may be mutually encouraged in the faith and as Hebrews 10:38-39 reminds us:

    WE WILL NOT DRAW BACK IN FEAR BUT PRESS IN AND PRESS THROUGH FOR THE FULL SALVATION, HEALING, AND DELIVERANCE OF THE SOUL!!!!

    Missions Update: The Harvest is Ripe in Pakistan!

    This year has been such a blessed year of fruitfulness and being sent out to partner with Jesus and what He is doing among the nations. The doors to the nations have been opened to us and it’s not over yet!

    In February, I was sent out to Florida for The Send, to join over 60,000 people from all around the world to pray and contend for a new wave of a missions sending movement. Years worth of visions and words from the Lord culminated into a manifestation before my very eyes of the mighty army rising up to overthrow the kingdom of darkness in the earth; and to carry the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

    A few weeks ago, I was sent to Spain to decree and declare the Word of the Lord that Spain’s time of awakening has come. That the Spirit of the Lord has breathed life into the land and that an incredible army is rising up to life to advance forth like never before. The time for the vineyards of Spain to be on fire is now! New wine is coming forth from Spain! We saw the beginnings of this move as we ministered and saw close to 40 people give their lives to the Lord, along with many healings and deliverances!

    Along with these, another door has opened for me to be a part of a fiery team of Burning Ones to bring fire to the nation of Pakistan!!! In October I will be joining Destiny Encounters and many from across the globe to see the 2nd strictest Islamic nation encounter Jesus and never be the same!!!

    I believe that a sea of souls will be brought into the Kingdom of God from this trip through the demonstration and power of the Gospel!!! I have seen it in the spirit and still, it will be nothing compared to the glory that is revealed as thousands choose Jesus!

    Romans‬ ‭10:14-15‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
    “But how can people call on Him for help if they’ve not yet believed? And how can they believe in One they’ve not yet heard of? And how can they hear the Message of Life if there is no one there to proclaim it? And how can the Message be proclaimed if messengers have yet to be sent? That’s why the Scriptures say: How welcome is the arrival of those proclaiming the joyful news of peace and of good things to come!”

    I say to you, don’t believe the news media! Jesus is King!!!

    Pakistan is ripe for REVIVAL!!!
    Pakistan is ripe for HARVEST!!!

    I share with you again the longing of His heart spoken to me at the end of last year that has reverberated through my spirit time and again:

    “WHERE ARE THEY THAT WOULD PREPARE THE WAY?!”

    It is an honor and privilege to GO when and where He calls! The earnest desire of my heart is to fulfill the cry of Jesus’ heart:

    Luke 12:49‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
    “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!”

    I ask that you would consider sowing into this Harvest of souls in Pakistan through prayer and financial support. There are seasons for sowing and there are seasons for going; and when converged, they bear a beautiful Harvest of fruit…the greatest of which is SOULS!!! Sow the seed that bears eternal fruit. Every seed sown, whether through prayer or financial support, lends to the increase of Kingdom advancement!

    When Jesus Comes to Town

    As I stated in my post on Saturday titled, The Lost Relics of the Simple Gospel and Our Testimony, I will be sharing more today more about my recent trip to Spain. I have been sharing amazing testimonies of what God did while we were there as well as lessons along the way that apply to our everyday life and walk with the Lord.

    69F8C63B-E80B-4023-9F2C-34EDA2433C60Our last Friday there, my partner, John and I were scheduled to do something we had not originally planned nor expected to do on the trip; aiding to the major summation of the entire trip…expect the unexpected! We had been told from Pastor Pablo and Elsa, the pastors we paired off with for the two weeks, that there was a couple in the church who were going through marital issues and the husband wanted a divorce. When informing us of this as we headed to another visit earlier in the week, they had asked us if we would meet with them and minister to them to try and bring some kind of reconciliation and restoration. We agreed and prayed for the Lord to do the work and that we would simply be vessels for His power and truth to flow through.

    The night prior was when we had ministered and shared the Gospel at a home meeting and three people gave their hearts and lives to Jesus, as shared in the post linked above. Afterward, we went out to a late dinner at the mall nearby and our pastors informed us that the following evening would be when we would meet with the couple. Using Google Translate, they began to fill us in on the issues that had taken place in the marriage and it left us shocked and praying for divine wisdom in how to proceed. There were supposed deep strongholds and strong demonic influence and accusations, with a lot of blanks to fill in.

    As Friday ensued, we anticipated that great deliverance and inner healing would need to take place; and in prayer and discussion, we both felt led to call upon our team member, Kirk, to join us as he is well trained in sozo ministry. We had the prayers of our entire team with us. Our friend, Israel, picked us up and would be our translator for the meeting. In sharing, he revealed what he had been told in preparation for the meeting; and our shock grew greater, as did our prayers for direction. We also discovered the discrepancies through translations were not entirely lining up; therefore, we were a bit unsure of what we were walking into.

    We met with the couple at the church and then separated them to talk to the husband in private; with the intention of getting to the heart of the matter where he was concerned. He was open and as far as we were concerned, he did not hide any details. In fact, Pastor told us that when he heard that our team was coming to Spain, he began to feel a lack of peace and eventually asked to have a meeting with us saying he was overcome with anxiety and loss of sleep. When Jesus comes to town, all of hell shutters and knows of its impending doom! Things simply cannot remain as they were!

    Ancient dungeon set upon the waters. Though dark and hopelessly drowning on the inside, surrounded by barriers to freedom, the pathway to life lies just outside the prison walls.

    We began to learn in taking him through a process of his connection with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, that a great many deep wounds and hurts burdened this man as well as a horrific history of abuse from the most trusted members of his family; and he bore the scars to prove it. It was evident that sitting before us was a broken man with a broken past; in deep need of a Savior to completely heal him, deliver him, set him free, and restore him. In the process, I believe that shock of all this man endured as a young child left us reeling and praying for a blanket of peace to continue in ministering to him and drawing him into the heart of the Father, the arms of Jesus, and the comfort of Holy Spirit.

    As my tear-filled eyes met Israel’s astonished, tear-stained gaze as he translated, I found myself overcome and overwhelmed with the compassion of Jesus. This man struggled to see the face of the Father, as he drowned in darkness. Filled with hatred and anger at all he had endured, he was unable to allow Holy Spirit into the room. Eventually as we guided him through a series of confessions and forgiveness, he began to feel Holy Spirit with us. He began to hear truth from Heaven about who God made him to be and a breaking off of lies occurred.

    We then came to Jesus. He could not see Jesus and felt abandoned by Him in his times of greatest need through years of horror. It was then that Jesus gave me a vision of a specific time when he had endured deep abuse as a very young child and He revealed every detail of the scene before my eyes. It was in that very moment that I saw Jesus come in the room, sit down beside him, and take hold of him, enveloping him in His arms, comforting him. As I shared this through tears, the man broke down weeping and spoke of this very moment in time, of what he had endured and what he was thinking. His eyes were opened to the reality that Jesus had in fact been there the whole time and had never abandoned him or forsaken him, even in his darkest of days. Jesus used this to break off deception and to usher in His truth and reality as our Faithful Friend to the very end. Such is true for each one of us.

    He shared how this history paved the way to a life of crime and how he had taken dozens of lives as a hitman for a gang he was a part of. Then Jesus entered the scene in his adult years and he had his first encounter with the power of God at a church gathering. The pastor called him forward out of the crowd and as he reluctantly came up on stage, the pastor prophesied his salvation that would come forth. He drew his gun on the pastor intending to kill him; and the pastor’s response should be that of every Follower of The Way, a martyr’s cry: With hands raised, “Go ahead and kill me! If I die, I am going to die worshipping my Savior!”

    With that, he shot the pastor…but no bullet came forth from his gun, the pastor was unharmed! He fired multiple rounds in the air, all successful. Then he fired at the pastor again, with the same failed response! He hit his knees, and surrendered his life to Christ! It took some years and Jesus helped set him free from the gang bent on taking his life and that of his family.

    There was always this reality to go back to, a memorial erected in his memory. He lost his way along the path, but sitting with us during this time Jesus confronted the demons of his past, cast them out, broke off the chains, and unlocked the prison doors. In the end, he could see Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit, and found a place in Heaven with all three that he never wanted to depart from. We then led him in a prayer of salvation and rededication to the Lord!

    Sitting before us was a completely different man than we had met a few hours prior. So much so, that we believe a restorative power was released that night that will ultimately lead to the restoration of his marriage! He also became our driver for Sunday ministry travels!

    Who would’ve thought that this man we ministered to would have such an encounter that he, an ex-assassin, would usher us around in ministry?! Now, THAT is what I call adventuring with Jesus!!!

    I have a purpose in sharing this testimony. The main point being, it does not matter what our past looks like…Jesus was in it, is all over it, and working through it all to create in us an eternal weight of glory. Everyone has a Saul to Paul conversion in store where no matter how dark and ugly our past is, He will always bring us into a beautiful bliss of abundant life that compels us to go and do the unthinkable to make the name of Jesus famous in the earth and to do as He did.

    We are never alone in this journey; never once before we knew Him, nor for a single moment after. It is time to step into His timeline, not the timeline of the past, and to advance; to storm the gates of hell and set free all who are bound as captives in darkness! No matter what appearances say, do it anyway!!! You have the dunamis (dynamite) power of Heaven backing you and going before you…you cannot lose unless you quit!

    DO NOT QUIT! DO NOT RELENT IN THE ASCENT!

    2 Corinthians 4:7-18 (TPT)
    “We are like common clay jars that carry this glorious treasure within, so that the extraordinary overflow of power will be seen as God’s, not ours. Though we experience every kind of pressure, we’re not crushed. At times we don’t know what to do, but quitting is not an option. We are persecuted by others, but God has not forsaken us. We may be knocked down, but not out. We continually share in the death of Jesus in our own bodies so that the resurrection life of Jesus will be revealed through our humanity. We consider living to mean that we are constantly being handed over to death for Jesus’ sake so that the life of Jesus will be revealed through our humanity. So, then, death is at work in us but it releases life in you. We have the same Spirit of faith that is described in the Scriptures when it says,
    ‘First I believed, then I spoke in faith.’ So we also first believe then speak in faith. We do this because we are convinced that He who raised Jesus will raise us up with Him, and together we will all be brought into His Presence. Yes, all things work for your enrichment so that more of God’s marvelous grace will spread to more and more people, resulting in an even greater increase of praise to God, bringing Him even more glory!
    So no wonder we don’t give up. For even though our outer person gradually wears out, our inner being is renewed every single day. We view our slight, short-lived troubles in the light of eternity. We see our difficulties as the substance that produces for us an eternal, weighty glory far beyond all comparison, because we don’t focus our attention on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but the unseen realm is eternal.”

    For His Glory,
