The Great Sift for the Shift: The Call to Holiness

There is a great shaking in the Body of Christ taking place in this season. We are seeing many respected leaders falling away and leaving their faith, accusations of misconduct coming forth towards others, and many are in the throes of warfare and demonic opposition. In recent weeks the Lord has put a heaviness upon my heart and spirit towards His holiness; and I have felt extremely led to hide away in the secret place with Him. In the past few days He began to remind me of a number of dreams and words that He gave me drawing towards this shaking that is taking place. I did not understand much of it at the time, however He is beginning to open the eyes of my understanding to see and know what He is speaking and revealing.

In the coming days I will share some of these dreams and words as He leads. I truly believe that we are in a time where God is shaking His Church right-side up and that He is enacting a greater call and command into His holiness. While praying and dwelling on this, I heard Him say:

“There will come a great sift for the shift. Things cannot stay the same and remain as they were; for where I am going, anything that is unclean and unholy cannot enter through the door. The door is narrow and only that which reflects My holiness and glory can enter through it.
Do not be surprised at what you see in the days ahead as I continue the sifting and shaking. I am sifting out all of the junk, the dross that hinders My Bride from entering into true purity and reverence of My name and nature.
No longer can My Bride remain straddled upon an imaginary fence, enjoying the fleeting pleasures of this life while being double-minded and half-hearted. This really is an ALL IN OR NOT IN AT ALL kairos moment in time.
For behold, a door stands before those with eyes to see, ears to hear, and a holy heart of wisdom and understanding. My voice is beckoning them higher into the unseen realm, the realm where Righteousness dwells!
Where are they who would put away the pleasures of this life for that which cannot be taken away?! Where are they who would seek My face above all other earthly things?! Where are they who would be Living Light; manifestations of My holiness in the earth?!

img_6725.jpgMoses never got to feast on the fruits of the land long promised him, nor was he allowed to even set foot in it. He was only allowed to gaze upon it from a distance and had to watch a new generation be risen up to take possession of it.

How could it be that the man whom God had raised up to be a deliverer for His chosen people would never see the fullness of the deliverance?

How could it be that the man whom God refers to as His friend would be the greatest betrayer of his day?

How could it be that the one man whom God allowed into His glory time and time again, whose very face shone with the glory of God, and who met with God face to face, would be removed from that Presence at the end of his days?

God clearly reveals to us the answer in the following passages:

Numbers 20:6-13 (AMP)
Then Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly to the doorway of the Tent of Meeting (tabernacle) and fell on their faces [before the Lord in prayer]. Then the glory and brilliance of the Lord appeared to them; and the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
“Take the rod; and you and your brother Aaron assemble the congregation and speak to the rock in front of them, so that it will pour out its water. In this way you shall bring water for them out of the rock and let the congregation and their livestock drink [fresh water].” 
So Moses took the rod from before the Lord, just as He had commanded him;  and Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly before the rock. Moses said to them, “Listen now, you rebels; must WE bring you water out of this rock?”
Then Moses raised his hand [in anger] and with his rod he struck the rock twice [instead of speaking to the rock as the Lord had commanded]. And the water poured out abundantly, and the congregation and their livestock drank [fresh water].
But the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you have not believed (trusted) Me, to treat Me as holy in the sight of the sons of Israel, you therefore shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them. These are the waters of Meribah (contention, strife), where the sons of Israel contended with the Lord, and He showed Himself holy among them.

In Deuteronomy 32:49-52, the Lord told Moses to go upon a mountain and overlooking the Promised Land; but he would die and never enter it. In verse 51, God says, For both of you betrayed Me with the Israelites at the waters of Meribah at Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin. You failed to demonstrate My holiness to the people of Israel there.

When we fail to be a manifestation and demonstration of the holiness of God through our very existence, we have lost our fixation upon the ONE THING. 

Things started out great; they went into the secret place and the Presence and Glory of God resonated in their midst. However, Moses lost sight of what God commanded, which was to declare to the rock the promise of living waters that were to come forth.

Moses became more fixated on man and emotions and allowed them to lead him into the grievous sin of attempting to touch God’s glory.

He struck the rock and yes, waters flowed forth; but he disobeyed God and he operated out of self-glory (must WE bring you water out of this rock?”). He performed a sign and wonder out of the anointing without the holiness and glory of God covering it. Therefore, God showed Himself holy among them through the act because Moses did not partner with Him in the miracle.

Sadly, because of that act, Moses’ promise was stripped from him and he was forced to gaze at a distance the Promised Land he gave his life for. 

We see in 2 Corinthians 3:13 that Moses put a veil over his face to hide the diminishing glory.

If we take on the likeness of that which we behold, then the glory glow on Moses’ face was a direct reflection and manifestation of that which he beheld as he stood
FACE TO FACE with the HOLY GOD.
In Moses wearing a veil over his face, it was intended to hide the diminishing glory.
The betrayal God is talking about in the passages above includes that Moses failed to demonstrate His Holiness because he began to lose sight of FIXING HIS EYES ON THE HOLY GOD. Out of this failing, HE FELL INTO UNBELIEF.

DO NOT EVER LOSE SIGHT OF THE ONE MAIN THING!!!
FIX YOUR EYES OF JESUS!!!

In Leviticus 10:1-3, Nadab and Abihu disobeyed the Lord by burning before Him the wrong kind of fire, different than He had commanded.” Their disobedience and lack of reverence for what is holy cost them their lives as the fire of God burned them up. Moses told Aaron, “This is what the Lord meant when He said, ‘I will display My holiness through those who come near Me. I will display My glory before all the people.’ 

We will all face the Holy Fire of God. We will either pass through it and everything unholy will be burned out of us and off of us that we may emerge reflecting the brilliance of His holiness…or we will be consumed by it and lose our place and promise.

We have this great promise and encouragement as we press into the pressing and the forge:
2 Corinthians 3:16-18 (NLT)
But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedomSo all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image.

May this be our prayer: “Oh, Holy Lord! Put us in the forge that we may emerge a holy being sanctified and glorified in You! Burn out and off of us anything that would make us an unworthy vessel for Your Presence to dwell in and flow through…at any cost!!! May we not offer up to You strange fire! May we decrease that You may be fully and wholly increased in us and through us all of our days!!!”

From Smoke Screens to Birthing Things

While in an intense season of prayer and fasting in this last year, the Lord brought me into a time of great revelation-knowledge day in and day out. It was in that time that He spoke the following word to me and He has now released me to share it. This is what I heard Him say:

“The labor has been long and hard. The coming birth is long OVERDUE! The baby has grown so large that it will take one hard push to be cast forth. BEAR DOWN! The enemy has seen the size of the promise and has tried to snuff out its life every step of the way…Clouds of heaviness, complacency in spirit, fear rumbling as he speaks death.

My Holy Spirit will be your midwife to guide you through the final pushes. YOU ARE ON THE CUSP OF DELIVERY! The Ring of Fire has been all around you, the intense waves of burning and opposition coming against you. But I declare to you: TRANSITION IS HERE AND YOUR BULGING WATERS ARE BURSTING, THAT YOU MAY GIVE YOUR FINAL PUSHES.

As you enter into the final phase, DO NOT GIVE UP, DO NOT LOSE HEART OR YOUR FOCUS FOR THE OVERFLOW IS JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR EFFORTS FOR MY KINGDOM! 

Yes, give your final pushes and BE AMAZED at how I EKBALLO My Revival, My Outpouring, My Promise!

Do you hear it?! Do you hear the sound of My babe coming forth?! Do you hear the roar from the lungs of a nation receiving the Light of Life? Everything I do is great! EVERYTHING I FORM AND FASHION TOGETHER IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK!

BEHOLD! I have set up and established a treasure trove of fruit from the promises I implanted in your heart. Now they have taken root, grown, developed, and are manifested before your very eyes! Reach forth and take hold of your special treasure, My Beloved!”


As we begin our transition into the Hebraic New Year, 5780 at the end of September, I believe that we are entering into a season of birthing the promises of God that have long been cultivated and become deep-seeded in the hearts of His Bride. I believe the Lord is saying in this crucial transition hour:

“The past seasons and years even, for many it seemed as if the promise would never come to fruition. Some even began to doubt the word spoken to them and if they had heard correctly or if they had missed a step along the way. The witchcraft and bombardment of the enemy of your souls had caused all focus to be lost in the thick cloud of the fallout. The heavy warfare and opposition had left many feeling disoriented and caused the focus of many to become askew and out of focus, lacking clarity. This co-ordinated attack was intended to stall the delivery and to allow for time to suffocate the promise in the middle of the birthing.

I say to you…It is time to SHAKE OFF THE DUST of the past season and to rise up and discern the hour that quickly encroaches!

Do you not perceive it? Do you not feel it? The rumbling and groaning arising even now for the fulfillment of the seeds of promise?

DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BECOME LOST in the shroud of foreboding of the unknown that the enemy is attempting to use as a smoke screen to distract you from the seedbed of Revival sprouting up RIGHT NOW before you! 

DO NOT FORGET WHAT I PUT IN YOU AND SPOKE TO YOU! IT WILL NOT BE LONG NOW UNTIL YOU BIRTH THE VERY THING IN WHICH I IMPLANTED IN YOU!

You thought it was far off or that the promise had died in the darkness of the womb; but I have been weaving things together which you have not seen nor perceived! Where it seemed as if all was lost, I was there creating something beautiful and intricate from nothing. My hands were there fashioning a thing too beautiful for words and NOW My Spirit has come to breathe the Breath of Life into the masterpiece I have designed.

You didn’t even know you were still pregnant with a living thing, and SUDDENLY IT MAKES ITS APPEARANCE!

I say to you…FIX YOUR GAZE UPON MY FACE! FIX YOUR GAZE UPON MY EYES OF LOVE AND MIMIC MY BREATHS AS I GUIDE YOU AND LEAD YOU THROUGH THE BIRTHING. STAY FOCUSED ON ME AND LET ALL OTHER THINGS FADE AWAY…REST IN ME AND MY LOVE AND WITHOUT ANY EFFORT OF YOUR OWN, YOU WILL FIND THAT IT IS IN THE REST THAT THE BIRTHING COMES!”


Isaiah 55:10-11 (TPT)
“As the snow and rain that fall from Heaven do not return until they have accomplished their purpose, soaking the earth and causing it to sprout with new life, providing seed to sow and bread to eat. So also will be the word that I speak; it does not return to Me unfulfilled. My word performs My purpose and fulfills the mission I sent it out to accomplish.”

Habakkuk 2:1-3 (AMP)
“I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the tower; and I will keep watch to see what He will say to me, and what answer I will give [as His spokesman] when I am reproved. Then the Lord answered me and said, ‘Write the vision and engrave it plainly on [clay] tablets so that the one who reads it will run. For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time it hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, because it will certainly come; it will not delay.'”

Isaiah 54:1-3 (NLT)
“‘Sing, O childless woman, you who have never given birth! Break into loud and joyful song, O Jerusalem, you who have never been in labor. For the desolate woman now has more children than the woman who lives with her husband,’ says the Lord. ‘Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.'”

Press In and Press Through Till There’s Breakthrough: A Call to Fast and Pray!

Early yesterday morning as I sat in prayer and to seek the Lord, He began to speak to me. For me, one of the biggest ways that He speaks to me is when I submit myself to His leading and His voice, by putting pen to paper. Yesterday was no different.

I felt such a strong pressing of this word and of it’s imperative timely status in the spirit. A kairos moment is upon us! I very much sensed that in the days leading up to Pentecost on June 9, that Father is bringing forth from Heaven a slim window of opportunity to the Body of Christ to see promises revealed transform into promises fulfilled. This has become increasingly apparent to me in the past few weeks and the urgency of the hour at hand is increasing as well.

This is what He said:

“NOW IS THE TIME in which the windows of Heaven are open and My blessings are being released in great proportion. NOW IS THE TIME in which My angelic messengers are carrying forth into the earth promises longed for, hoped for, prayed for, and warred for. There is an opened access door into the storehouses of Heaven to deliver that which was once blocked of release.

BEWARE of a slumbering presence that seeks to hinder the release and to stall the revealing! It seeks to blind and conceal with darkness, the revelation of divine release.

I tell you truly, IF you will commit to set your gaze, focus, and sights upon My Kingdom in this hour, THEN  I will bring into you that which has been promised. I will send warring angels on your behalf to bring deliverance and divine release.

DARE TO DREAM BIG WITH ME!

DO NOT LET slumber fall to your eyelids lest you remain blinded and fail to receive that which is coming on the clouds!

STAY AWAKE AND STAY UP WITH ME!!!

Circle your promises and keep circling them until I give the signal for every demonic delay to come toppling down; yes, crumbling down!!!”

Beloved, we MUST NOT allow this moment to pass us by! We must not be like those who in Jesus’ day, dwelt among THE ANSWER to every prophecy they had held onto for hundreds of years; and yet, they were completely blinded to the reality that their Savior stood right in front of them. Even His own disciples, His closest friends, doubted His resurrected existence as He stood among them.

It is time to strip off all unbelief, all doubt, all fear and complacency, every lie, and every deception that would blind us to His Presence and His activity in the earth at this moment and in the time to come!

I must share that something interesting occurred as I received this message from the Lord. The spirit of slumber attempted to overtake me. One could say, “Well, you had four hours of sleep! Of course that would happen!” I don’t disagree. However, this time was different. I was wide awake at 4:30 to seek Jesus and it was not until He began to release this word that I sensed the onslaught of this spirit. I discerned it’s presence and I warred for the Word, though my eyelids be heavy. To my husband, it probably would’ve been the gentlest of warring that he’s seen from me; not noticeable, even.

I believe something natural in the Kingdom of Heaven took place. Because I had submitted myself to Him to seek and receive, He fought for me. Because He saw my hunger and longing, He slayed the giants opposing me. I will say, most of, if not all of the word I received was written down with my eyes closed as I rested in He, Who fights my battles. He began to expose that which sought to hinder the release of the word was indeed, the ‘slumbering presence’ in which He spoke of.

As I dwelled on this word, He reminded me of a prophetic declaration and song that came forth from my lips two days ago, “Press in, and press through till there’s breakthrough!” 

He then led me back to the Gospel accounts I studied last week from Jesus’ encounter with His disciples, Peter, James, and John in the Garden of Gethsemane, just before He was betrayed by Judas and led to His crucifixion. I was wrecked last week of His interaction with His closest friends in their last moments together. He chose them to join Him in praying, for the hour was urgent to seek God.

Mark 14:33-35 says, “An intense feeling of great horror plunged His soul into deep sorrow and agony. And He said to them, ‘My heart is overwhelmed with anguish and crushed with grief. It feels as though I’m dying. STAY HERE AND KEEP WATCH WITH ME.’ He walked a short distance away, and being overcome with grief, He threw Himself facedown on the ground. He prayed that if it were possible, He would not have to experience this hour of suffering.Verse 37-38 says, Then He came back to His three disciples and found them all sound asleep. He awakened Peter and said to him, ‘Simon, are you asleep? Do you lack the strength to stay awake with Me for EVEN JUST AN HOURKeep alert and pray that you’ll be spared from this time of testing. For your spirit is eager enough, but your humanity is feeble.'”

They couldn’t stay awake for even ONE HOUR! Why?!?!?!?!

He did this three times, going off to pray in agony as though He were dying. Three times He returned to find His closest friends asleep. I believe He placed a test before them of their devotion to Him through any trial that may come. He chose them specifically to join Him in His secret place; however this time, they joined Him in what was probably the sole dark night of the soul in His life. I believe it was perhaps similar to Elijah’s test of Elisha in 2 Kings 2. Elisha prevailed in this test and not only saw His father taken into Heaven, but also received a double portion of Elijah’s mantle because he refused to depart from his father and was determined to receive what his Father had.

However, I do not believe the disciples passed Jesus’ test. They did not refuse to depart from Him in this moment where He obviously was like they had never seen Him be. They remained where they were and allowed Him to go on in solitude to cry out to God for relief from the cup He was to drink of. What if when He said, “STAY HERE AND KEEP WATCH WITH ME”, that it was actually a command to abide with Him and an invitation to join Him in His suffering? Luke 22:43-44 say that He called for an angel of glory to come and strengthen Him.” Would that have been necessary if they had joined Him?

Verses 39-42 state, “Then He left them a second time and went to pray the same thing. Afterward, He came back to the disciples and found them sound asleep, FOR THEY COULDN’T KEEP THEIR EYES OPEN AND THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO HIM. After praying for the third time, He returned to His disciples and awoke them again, saying, ‘Do you plan on sleeping and resting indefinitely? THAT’S ENOUGH SLEEP! THE END HAS COME AND THE HOUR HAS ARRIVED for the Son of Man to be handed over to the authority of sinful men. Get up and let’s go. DON’T YOU SEE? My betrayer draws near.'”

THEY COULDN’T KEEP THEIR EYES OPEN AND THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO HIM. 

What came upon them and overtook them so greatly that they literally COULD NOT keep their eyes open and keep watch with Him and had no answer for Him as to why? I believe that it was the same slumbering spirit that Father spoke of in the message He gave me. It seeks to blind in darkness, the vision and provision of Heaven. The word for “keep watch” and “see” literally means, “to see in the spirit”. Jesus was not telling them to watch with their natural eyes, but to keep watch and guard with their spirit eyes. If it is allowed to operate, then it will block what is being released from Heaven to earth.

I believe that in this hour, Jesus is calling His Bride to band together, stand together, and contend together through a season of intense and intentional prayer, fasting, and seeking. There are promises that have been pent up and blocked from release but His promise is that if we will seek Him in these ways, that He will send His angels to remove the barriers that the release may come.

I truly believe that we are in a brief Daniel 10 moment of time. Just as Daniel set his face to pray and fast for the release of revelation of the vision, WE TOO, MUST SEIZE THIS MOMENT WITH ACTION! I believe that just as with Daniel, if we do this, we will be met by the same glowing man to dispatch angels of deliverance. He is Jesus.

Per the urging of the Lord, I am calling a 40-day fast beginning tomorrow, May 1st until Pentecost Sunday, June 9th. I strongly urge you to join me! If you have been contending for miracles, healing, salvations, promises, deliverance; NOW IS THE TIME!!! Just as He met His faithful ones who remained through the release of Holy Spirit and fire on Pentecost, I believe that He is bringing forth the same in this hour!!!

Raising Up Martyrs

For the past few days I have been pondering and dwelling on a thing with the Lord. I find myself going back to this past Sunday when I was teaching the youth at our church. For months now, the Lord has been leading me to teach about the Harvest. I taught out of John 4 for a few months through the end of last year and into the new year; followed by teaching out of the end of Matthew 9:27-38 and on into Matthew 10.

I fully expected to teach from Matthew 10:7-8, And as you go, preach this message: ‘Heaven’s Kingdom realm is accessible (at hand), 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.However, He chose to lead it in a completely different direction and not even really talk about Matthew 10 in the way I thought. He led the conversation into teaching about martyrdom to youth under the age of fourteen.

While this isn’t your typical idea of what a Sunday morning teaching and discipleship for youth would look like; He planted seeds of holy pursuit, zealous passion, and awakened compassion. I shared the stories of modern-day martyrs, Jim Elliot, along with his four friends while attempting to reach the Huaorani tribe in Ecuador; and this past year, John Chau, who gave up his life to reach the highly isolated tribe on North Sentinel Island.

All-consuming love for Jesus and to bring Him the reward of His suffering has marked those who have given up everything, including their very lives, to go to the ends of the earth for love. God is awakening His compassion unto action in this generation. This very thing is what so moved Jesus’ heart for the lost in His day.

Matthew 9:35-38 (TPT)
“Jesus walked throughout the region with the joyful message of God’s Kingdom realm. He taught in their meeting houses, and wherever He went He demonstrated God’s power by healing every kind of disease and illness. When He saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. He turned to His disciples and said, ‘THE HARVEST IS HUGE AND RIPE! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. AS YOU GO, PLEAD with the Owner of the Harvest to THRUST out many more reapers to harvest His grain!'”

When Jesus saw the crowds of people, compassion overtook Him and He was gripped by it because when He looked upon them, He saw a lost, hurting, broken, abandoned, addicted, wandering, worn, helpless, harassed, distressed, shepherd-less, scattered people, condemned to an eternity of separation and torment in hell. The literal translation of their state is as if they had been flayed, skinned alive, and mangled. He saw their great need of a Deliverer and Savior.

I believe that perhaps He not only saw the crowds that were before Him, but also caught a glimpse or vision of the vast multitudes that would come who resembled the same state. Perhaps upon seeing this, He thought back on God’s desire to co-labor with His creation to carry out His will in the earth. For it is when seeing this reality that He turned to His disciples and presented the problem.
The harvest is huge and ripe, where are they who would partner with Me in gathering it in?
No sooner did He present the problem did He provide the solution. As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest His grain!” He then commissioned His disciples to GO, and as they went, to PLEAD that He would THRUST out more laborers.

In other words, “I am sending (EKBALLO-ing) you to be the answer; and I command you to plead (BEG) Me to hurl (EKBALLO) forth more laborers into the Harvest as you go!”

This is His divine commissioning — He expects and commands us to go!

Upon this command we see going into Matthew 10, that He imparted to them authority and power to do as He had done. We are then brought back to Matthew 10:7-8 as stated above. The disciples had been marked by a zeal that had consumed them. When you have become so marked and consumed by this holy passion and fire, you become unstoppable; for the Unstoppable One dwells within you. This very thing is what led the apostles to say to the leaders in their day who told them to stop sharing about Jesus, “We cannot help but to speak what we have seen and known to be true!” (Acts 4:18-20

Thinking on this, I asked Holy Spirit why He directed the teaching to martyrdom and what it means for the Body of Christ. He replied,

“I did it because it is time to level up! It is time to stop spoon-feeding this generation of believers with a comfortable gospel!

IT IS TIME TO GO ALL IN! YOU ARE EITHER ALL IN OR NOT IN AT ALL!

There is no age-requirement to My command and call! There is only one requirement: a simple person being simply obedient! If you train up a child in the way they should go, when they are older, they will not depart from it! This generation and the ones to come possess a passion and tenacity that I placed within them to scale the heights, undaunted, fearless, and unrelenting.

Are you willing to lay down your life for My Kingdom to be advanced and established in the earth? Are you willing to lay down your life for souls?Do not neglect to train and equip them in the FULL Gospel of Truth; for some of them will indeed lay down their very lives for My name’s sake and the sake of souls, some even at a young age. They MUST be properly trained and prepared. This can only be done by example. I prepared and equipped My disciples by setting the example. I laid down My very life for the sake of the world.

Indeed, some of you will. But do not continue until you count the cost. I have come to set you on fire that others will come and watch you burn. Like a wildfire, it will be caught and spread across boundary lines, state lines, water lines, and dividing lines.  You must warn them to step up and step out; for I am coming! Sooner than they think! But not until every tribe, every tongue, and every nation has been given the opportunity to come to Me! This is only done through your obedience and the faithful obedience of My Bride.”

I dwelled deeply on this word last night and He reminded me of Acts 1:8, the last thing Jesus said to His apostles before He ascended into Heaven.

Acts 1:8 (TPT)
“But I promise you this—the Holy Spirit will come upon you and you will be filled with POWER. And you will be My MESSENGERS (witnesses) to Jerusalem, throughout Judea, the distant provinces—even to the remotest places on earth!”

The word for “power” is “dunamis“, which is where we get the word, “dynamite“. The word for “messengers” or “witnesses” is “martus“, which is the word, “martyr“. It is as if He was saying, “Holy Spirit is coming and will baptize you and fill you with an explosive power that will catapult you to be martyrs for My Kingdom to the ends of the earth!”

I am reminded of the week after I returned from The Send. I had received such a fresh baptism of fire and a fresh commission to Go! Two days into the week, I overheard my three-year old son singing, “I will preach the Gospel, die and be forgotten, as long as You get the glory!” On another occasion I heard him singing, “I will love You with my ‘Yes’ and with my obedience, Jesus!”, and “It’s my joy to lose my life and find it in Jesus Christ.”

Azariah in tears, being overwhelmed by Holy Spirit in prayer.

I wept then as I do now; and not for the reason that many would think. I am filled with abounding joy and am proud of my son that even though he is young, his heart is stirring to yearn for Jesus and to go to any length to love Him and partner with Him in His grand plan of salvation and setting the earth on fire. That he desires to carry out his own destiny and purpose created for him from before the foundations of the earth were laid.

This is what we are to do. We are to first become martyrs. Then we are to raise up and train others to become martyrs. We are all called to be martyrs for Jesus. Some of us will laid down our very lives for this cause for He is worthy; however, all of us are called to be faithful witnesses to what we have seen and known to be true. Jesus is the One Who is Faithful and True. 

The Spirit of Prophecy is the testimony of Jesus. When we testify, we prophesy!

My prayer is this:
God, awaken us all to Your call! Awaken us to our purpose in the earth: to proclaim, train, and send. Father, baptize us in a holy compassion for the lost that would so grip us as it did You; and that we would stop at nothing to go to the ends of the earth for love! May we lay down our very lives for the lost to know You. Come what may, we will go with You! Here we are God! Send us! The wisdom of God is foolish in the eyes of the world; but still we go with You! May we partner with You and be fire starters that set nations ablaze for Your glory; and may we train up martyrs for Your Kingdom! May we never relent in this great ascent!

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”

Harbingers of Hope are Coming!

Recently I was in prayer and intercession for The Send, a gathering of believers coming together in Orlando, Florida on February 23, 2019. The mission of the leaders of this gathering and those attending (myself included), is to do whatever it takes to see the re-evangelization of America and the finishing of the Great Commission. Here is a quick snippet of what this earth-shaking event is about. My prayer is that you will see this and experience the overwhelming heart of Jesus to see nations, people, and hearts set ablaze for the Glory of the Lord. That war on inaction would be your declaration; with fire shut up in your bones. That you would join the wave of Burning Ones to bring Jesus the Reward of His Suffering.

While praying I found myself prophesying through song of the coming wave of Burning Ones. I was then taken into a vision where I could see this wave, of which I have seen numerous times over the past few years. Each time that I saw this wave, I experienced different elements of it. I once saw Jesus riding upon the wave of souls coming forth in the Greatest Revival in history that is to come. Another time, He gave me ears to hear the sound of the wave and the groans of the earth at their releasing. A time after that, I saw these Burning Ones running upon the hills with Jesus riding upon them, leading the charge. He opened His mouth and bellowed out His roar, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah roared for the releasing as in Joel 2. This time was very similar to the other visions I have had, yet there was something very different.

As I stood there, I felt the soil beneath my feet begin to tremble and shake. I looked up and gazed upon the horizon and I saw a wave come over the mountain, vast in size extending beyond my eyes’ reach. In great formation this great army charged forth, rolling upon the hills. The thunder of their feet shook the nations awake like the charging forth of a mighty army of war horses. In their arms, they came carrying His Little Ones, marked by the spirit of adoption. They were clothed with Righteousness and the Fire of His Love emblazoned them and radiated from them.
As I watched, I saw Jesus riding upon this wave atop His unbridled Warhorse, Holy Spirit. In great synchronization, the army mimicked His strides. He was clothed in dazzling white, His eyes blazing with fire mingled with piercing sapphire. His eyes were on the nations and burned for them. He extended His arm and held in His hand a flaming sword. From this sword, representing His faithful promises, He wiped out every enemy set before the army, clearing the path. I heard Him say,

“I am Faithful and True to keep ALL of My promises. Has a single one fallen to the ground? Has a single one gone forth that it did not accomplish ALL that I dispatched it to?

I AM COMING! TELL THEM THAT I AM COMING!

In the blink of an eye, all the nations will see Me for Who I really am. In the blink of an eye, everything will change. Brilliant colors surround Me and I am clothed in My promises for all to see; and indeed, they will see.
For behold, I am coming riding upon the wave of Righteousness; My Burning Ones dwelling and stampeding within the wave. There is no escaping the wave; for the Fire consumes all things and purifies all things.
The fiery compassion of My Love will fuel these Blazing Ones and you will see them coming, carrying My Little Ones in their arms. These will be the Harbingers of Hope to the earth. These will be the ones who have taken up My Little Ones when their silent cries rung out across time and space.
My fiery compassion and Love did this. It beckoned a response from the earth and these are those who have answered the call. They have been cleansed and purified by My Fire and set ablaze with a Commission that is unquenchable and unshakeable. They carry the coming generation in their arms and they have not lost a single one!
Joy mingled with purpose will be their catalyzing force. They will trample upon foes before them because I am riding upon them; and they will do it carrying My Little Ones through. SEE IT NOW!”

I struggle in just sharing this encounter to find the words to formulate what He is doing in this hour; for I am deeply overwhelmed as I see it again so fresh and new in describing it to you. I have had a number of other encounters where He has revealed what is to come and I will share what I am released to share with you. I would like to go back to two posts that I wrote at the last half of this past year, Into the Wilderness We Go!  and 2019: It’s All About Righteousness. Please go and read them for they give a deep insight into this wave that He is releasing and how the earth will be shaken and transformed by the Glory of the Lord.

I believe that He is taking the atrocities that we are experiencing in our nation and in the nations across the earth and using them to further His Truth; for He is sovereign over everything and in charge. He makes beauty out of ashes.

I prophesy that the darkness of deception is being obliterated as the brilliant Light of Life shines forth upon the wings of the dawn. Out of this place will an awakening of His Bride come forth to the purpose for which she was created. She will rise up out of her slumber, take up her weapons and clothe herself in the robe of Righteousness bestowed upon her. She will run with a fire in her eyes, burning with the passionate zeal of the Lord to see the world burning for Him.

The current state of death and abortion in America will no longer be tolerated, for she holds the keys to shut the gates open to the enemy and to unlock and open the ageless doors of destiny; ushering in Heaven on earth. As she stampedes across the land, she will take up the mandate of Justice and burn with His Love for the fatherless and His Little Ones. A new wave of adoption will arise in the physical as well as the spiritual, twins; yes, a double baby boom! His Bride will arise with the compassionate Love of the Father and take up His Little Ones as their own.

The Lord says, “Who are these kings and queens who care for and love My Little Ones? Are they not the ones whom I have established and commissioned as Mothers and Fathers? Are they not the ones whom I have enabled to take up the masses into their arms and shepherd them into Burning Ones? Yes, all of the world will see what I have done! No longer will there be silent screams for help and justice echoing throughout the halls of eternity. Only will joy remain as sons and daughters find their homes in My Burning Ones and in Me! No more will I weep over the spilled blood of My precious Little Ones whom I intricately and perfectly knit together. A day is coming when blueprints are released to expand the spirit of adoption into all spheres of society and a fostering heart will be released upon many to Love families into My Kingdom; bringing the restoration of the hearts of the fathers to the children and the children to the fathers. Do you see it now? Watch as I take what was once a broken system full of the forgotten and I establish a foundation of family in the center of it all! A Center of Justice will arise! Await and see! Arise and see! It will change everything! It’s time to awaken the mothers and fathers and to take up My Little Ones in your arms and carry them as they go!”

Psalm 9:9-12 (TPT)
“All who are oppressed may come to You as a shelter in the time of trouble, a perfect hiding place. May everyone who knows Your mercy keep putting their trust in You, for they can count on You for help no matter what. O Lord, You will never, no never, neglect those who come to You. Listen, everyone! Sing out your praises to the God who lives and rules within Zion! Tell the world about all the miracles He has done! He tracks down killers and avenges bloodshed, but He will never forget the ones forgotten by others, hearing every one of their cries for justice.

Psalm 24:7-10 (TPT)
“So wake up, you living gateways! 
Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny!
Welcome the King of Glory, for He is about to come through you. You ask, ‘Who is this Glory-King?’ The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way! So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here He comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in. You ask, ‘Who is this King of Glory?’ He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Yes, He is the King of Glory!”

Luke 1:17 (AMP)
“It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous [which is to seek and submit to the will of God]—in order to make ready a people [perfectly] prepared [spiritually and morally] for the Lord.”

Isaiah 40:9-11 (TPT)
“Go up on a high mountain, you joyful messengers of Zion, and lift up your voices with power. You who proclaim joyous news to Jerusalem, shout it out and don’t be afraid. Say to the cities of Judah, ‘Here is your God!’ Look! Here comes the Lord Yahweh as a victorious warrior; He triumphs with His awesome power. Watch as He brings with Him His reward and the spoils of victory to give to His people. He will care for you as a shepherd tends his flock, gathering the weak lambs and taking them in his arms. He carries them close to his heart and gently leads those that have young.”

For Such A Time As This

About a week ago, I wrote two posts sharing what the Lord was saying about the newly released bill mandating abortion until birth in New York called, Salvation Through a Babe and What Will Reverse the Curse on America?. If you have not read them, you must. I believe you will find the answer to America’s crisis, prayer and intercession strategies, awakening for the Body of Christ, and practical action to combat the demonic principalities behind what we see in the natural.

God does not speak His Word and His heart for it upon fall to deaf ears; He wants all to hear the Truth and to respond accordingly. God is not silent about the happenings in the earth and among His people; He is revealing His heart to those who are humble and willing to seek Him in the secret place.

180124-holocaust-survivors-nazi-soldiers-01

One horror of the Holocaust. The number of murders from abortion far exceeds the number of people murdered during the Holocaust.

Roe v. Wade passed 46 years ago legalizing abortion in America and the consequences of it are nothing short of devastating. It is much like the decree of Haman that went out in all of Susa demanding the complete extermination of all Jews in the day of Esther; and like Hitler’s demand that Jews cease to exist with the Holocaust in more recent times. We see even in Biblical history that the enemy set out to destroy all infants and babies in an attempt to kill Moses, whom God would raise up to deliver Jews out of slavery in Egypt; and most importantly is the attempt at ending the life of our Savior, Jesus. King Herod, under the influence of satan, ordered the murder of all babies and toddlers in and around Bethlehem to prevent Jesus from growing to carry out His purpose of establishing His unending eternal government, saving all of mankind, and restoring what was broken when Adam and Eve fell in the garden. The events and people change, but the demonic principalities are still the same. No matter how bad it looks or gets, God still has the final Word and He always wins.

Esther 4:1-3 (NLT)
“When Mordecai learned about all that had been done, he tore his clothes, put on burlap and ashes, and went out into the city, crying with a loud and bitter wail. He went as far as the gate of the palace, for no one was allowed to enter the palace gate while wearing clothes of mourning. And as news of the king’s decree reached all the provinces, there was great mourning among the Jews. They fasted, wept, and wailed, and many people lay in burlap and ashes.”

Mordecai had received an edict issued by King Xerxes, influenced by evil Haman, decreeing the destruction, slaughter, and annihilation of all Jews 11 months from the date of its issue, Passover (ironically the same day Jews from all provinces came together to celebrate their liberation from slavery in Egypt unto freedom through Moses’ obedience.) Haman had an obsessive hatred of Mordecai and his Jewish lineage; and his hatred only deepened when Mordecai refused to bow down and worship him like the rest of the province was ordered to do. Feeling the desperate pressure of impending doom, Haman thought he would triumph over his enemy by wiping them out completely. From appearances this seemed to be a racial war unto genocide; however, it’s true source was spiritual battle of good v.s. evil; death v.s. life. This is the truth behind the abortion agenda.

Mordecai’s response is one that we as the Bride of Christ should have when laws are proposed or passed declaring the destruction, slaughter, and annihilation of God’s innocent, His Little Ones. His mourning and deep anguish was not hidden or pressed down to save face; it got ugly and was not a pleasant sight. He could have hidden in his home and wept in loneliness, yet he took his despair right to the king’s gate and made his undignified response known.

 

I must ask a self-analyzing question: When receiving news of the latest appalling laws disregarding the sanctity of life for His babies, have you ugly cried before the Lord and man and allowed even a glimpse of the anguish of God’s heart to touch you and move you unto action? Have you made your voice known in opposition and truth? If not, I strongly encourage you to go before the Lord and ask Him to search your heart for anything out of order that may have hardened your heart, that may have transformed empathy into apathy. 

We see the Jews fasted, wept, and wailed in mourning. They did not need to be told to do any of these things. It became a natural response, recognizing their dire need of a Savior to step in. That morning coffee or lunch at a restaurant no longer took precedence over seeking His face like never before. They got back to God’s Word in Isaiah 58. (I must interject the narrative and also state that the Jews had been exiled long enough at this point that they had become assimilated into the Persian culture to the extent that most people no longer knew Jew from Gentile. Their very own queen was evidence of that. It was a secret of divine appointment that God would place a Jew as queen over a Gentile nation.)

V. 4 (AMP)- “When Esther’s maids and her eunuchs came and told her [what had happened], the queen was seized by great fear. She sent garments to clothe Mordecai so that he would remove his sackcloth, but he did not accept them.”

Esther was deeply distressed, seized by great fear (fear of man) in just hearing of her cousin’s behavior. She sent him clothes to put on to cover the distress he, himself, was displaying before the world. I will be bold enough to propose that Esther’s response is a reflection of much of the Bride of Christ today. She spent her days within the confines of the walls of her governance (to us, the church), oblivious to the reality of judgement and doom taking place all around her. When hearing of the voice, her blood-relative, wailing in the streets, she intended to silence his voice to keep appearances up and put on a false perception that things were not falling apart. Perhaps much of The Church today is like Esther, failing to fulfill the totality of our God-given governance in The Kingdom of God to overthrow the kingdom of darkness. Perhaps we have wasted too much time catering to comforting the world, coddling our own comforts of idolatry and perfecting passivity.

In verses 5-12, Esther’s response to Mordecai when he sent word to her of the edict, demanding that she go to the king and plead for the salvation and deliverance of her people was one of excuse motivated by fear. She believed that silence was more profitable for her own salvation. I propose that she had become so isolated within herself and from the king that she began to believe the lie of the enemy that she had no voice; that her petitions would fall to the ground as would her head.

Beloved, DO NOT fall into this deception! YOUR VOICE COUNTS!!! BE MOTIVATED BY THE FEAR OF THE LORD, NOT THE FEAR OF THE ENEMY AND MAN!!! It’s time to throw out excuses!!!

V. 13-14 (MSG)- “When Hathach told Mordecai what Esther had said, Mordecai sent her this message: ‘Don’t think that just because you live in the king’s house you’re the one Jew who will get out of this alive. If you persist in staying silent at a time like this [since you did not help when you had the chance (AMP)], help and deliverance will arrive for the Jews from someplace else; but you and your family will be wiped out. Who knows? Maybe you were made queen for just such a time as this.’”

I have heard the argument a number of times that someone living a holy life in this land is separated from the repercussions of the blood-stained soil of this land, from the judgement coming. Mordecai addressed this head on with Esther. She was deceived into thinking that just because she dwelled within the king’s home and was ‘his bride’ that she would be exempt from the judgement coming. Silence ushers in divine retribution (Ezekiel 33:16-21)

Beloved, silence is not an option to God. He is going to move and bring salvation and deliverance to our nation at some point in time; but we will be left out of the salvation if we as His Bride and His Church abandon our posts in this great war. Under military criminal code, the maximum penalty for desertion during a declared war is the death sentence. We are in a war right now and the enemy is pulling out all demons and weapons in his arsenal to ensure his edict withstands opposition. It is time to go all in and recognize that we were created and positioned for such a time as this. DO NOT ABANDON POST!!! You are only on the winning side when you rise up to your post, press in and forward fearlessly, refusing to back down to perdition (Heb. 10:39)

V. 4:15-17 (AMP)
“Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, ‘Go, gather all the Jews that are present in Susa, and observe a fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids also will fast in the same way. Then I will go in to [see] the king [without being summoned], which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish.’…”

It is time to fast. I understand the cringe that must’ve gone up some spines when saying that; but it’s necessary. As Americans, we like to eat. America as a whole is fat. Fat on food, comforts, self-indulgence and idolatry. It’s time to cut off the fat. God made it clear in Isaiah 58 that the kind of fast He wants is one that breaks the chains of the oppressed, breaks bonds of wickedness, shatters the yoke, caring for orphans, widows, and the fatherless. It is only then that our light will shine forth bringing a new dawn, righteousness preceding us, and the Glory of the Lord on its heels. It’s then that He will hear our cries and answer us. We must have an unrelenting ‘all or nothing’ mentality!!! This is LIFE OR DEATH.

I encourage you to read the word the Lord gave for 2019: 2019: It’s All About Righteousness. I saw a great and mighty army arising and taking up their weapons to recover what had been lost and forgotten; relics of righteousness. You will find empowerment and a deeper insight into what God wants to do now.

What Will Reverse the Curse on America?

This week, grievous news surfaced in the nation of America that has caused a tumultuous upheaval of what has been widely accepted as a cultural norm. On Tuesday, applause filled the Senate chambers of New York as the sound of celebration reverberated in the atmosphere for the passing of the Reproductive Health Act bill, calling for legal abortion until birth; and removing capital punishment for the harm or death brought to babies pertaining to such terms. As with a great portion of America and nations around the world, I have grieved deeply over this horrendous act of disregard for the sanctity of life.

dsc_0382 (1)

I shared more on what the Lord revealed in the immediate aftermath of this decision a few days ago in a post titled, Salvation Through a Babe. You could say that that post was part one of I’m not sure how many more to come. The Lord is continuing to download prophecies and visions pertaining to this great crisis and state of our nation.

The following morning as I sought the Lord in sorrowful prayer, I began asking Him what He has to say about the devastating news; and what He is doing in and through it all. I know without a shadow of a doubt that regardless of the atrocities taking place in my nation and across the earth, that nothing surprises Him. He knew before the foundations of the earth were created that these decisions would be made by our legislative branch. A people dredged in sin and stained with innocent blood will suffer great judgement at the hands of our Just God. He demands justice. I also know unswervingly that He is still sovereign over it all and still in control. He will allow a people to remain in sin and death only so long before He sends a deliverer to set free and redeem. I believe in His name, His character, and His promises. He promises that if we, dead in our sin would turn to Him in repentance, then He will deliver, heal, and restore us.
This is what I heard Him say:

“The shadow of darkness will last for a time but I am the One Who decides night’s end and the breaking forth of the dawn; shattering the shroud of darkness.
Is it man who determines the right to life? Was it man with Me in the beginning when I spoke light into the darkness and put a great divide among them? No, it was My Son and the Light of My Son exposes all darkness and erases it.
Was it man with Me when I breathed upon the dust and it sprang into a human being? No, the breath of My Spirit did that; and the Life of My Son saved man from eternal death.
So why do you give man so much credit? Man is simply a pawn in carrying out the eternal purpose of satan — to kill, slaughter, and annihilate. Let this be a divine wake-up call, My Bride! I am the God of Justice; I demand justice for those who are oppressed. I demand freedom for the captive. I assure you, this atrocity and injustice IS NOT beyond My control. The enemy thought he had gained the high ground by taking possession of a great gateway but he HAS NOT won the war! Look not at what is seen, but the unseen.

Surely, the blind and slumbering will be jolted awake with the severing of an arm. Drastic, unthinkable measures must take place to awaken My Bride. For I am turning around this death decree and awakening My gatekeepers, generals, and warriors to the war at hand: to take their place and perform their purpose. As awakening invades The Church, I will release holy strategy and blueprints for a divine turnaround.

My warning for you is this — it is up to you how far down the road of death and unrighteousness you go. At what point will you choose to wake up? The enemy has already devised plans like you have seen this week for many gateways to bring death and destruction. How long will you partner with him through silence and inaction? How many of My babies whom I have intricately designed for earth-shaking purposes must you allow to perish under the weight of your sin? 

If you will awaken, fall on your faces in repentance and partake in mourning as I mourn deeply for your unrighteous deeds and the innocent blood that stains your soil; then I will deliver you and not just break Haman’s curse on your land, but I will reverse the curse.

An awake and active Body will make great strides with Me. I will place orphans in families, heal and restore relationships. You will see a wave of adoption rise, in the spiritual and in the physical. Surely, kings and queens in My Kingdom will love children and families into My Kingdom. Only joy will echo forth. No more weeping and mourning, but a divine cleansing and wave of restoration. Behold, you will see a mighty outpouring shower upon you.”

America is shrouded under Haman’s curse right now. A decree was pronounced in the demonic realm declaring theft, death, and annihilation that began on January 22, 1973; 46 years ago. Over 60 million lives destroyed, voices never heard, destinies never fulfilled. This is unacceptable. We are in a time experienced by the prophet, Isaiah. Arrogant Assyria has arisen to spout deception, dissension, division, and death.

Isaiah 10:1-5 (TPT): “Woe to those who legalize injustice and write oppressive legislation! You rip away the rights of the poor and prey upon widows and orphans! What will come of you on your day of visitation when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? And what will you do then with all your great wealth? You’ll have no option but to cringe among the captives or fall among the corpses of the slain! Yet despite all this, His anger has not subsided, and His hand is poised to strike. Woe to arrogant Assyria, the rod of My anger!”

Isaiah 1:11-13 (AMP)
“’What are your multiplied sacrifices to Me [without your repentance]?’ Says the Lord. ‘I have had enough of [your] burnt offerings of rams and the fat of well-fed cattle [without your obedience]; and I take no pleasure in the blood of bulls or lambs or goats [offered without repentance]. When you come to appear before Me, who requires this of you, this trampling of My [temple] courts [by your sinful feet]? Do not bring worthless offerings again, [your] incense is repulsive to Me; [your] New Moon and Sabbath [observances], the calling of assemblies—I cannot endure wickedness [your sin, your injustice, your wrongdoing] and [the squalor of] the festive assembly.’

The Lord is exposing falsehood within His Bride. Every ounce of deception brooding and permeating His Bride is being exposed. He is reaching in, ripping open the heart of His Bride and revealing hidden sinful ambitions, inaction promoted by fear and apathy, false humility, disobedience [whether direct or slow obedience], selfish pride, and pious deceit.

The simple fact that the murder of His Little Ones has been allowed to continue for 46 YEARS reveals the overall state of The Church. If His Bride had stepped out and responded in deep repentance and fear and trembling of the Lord, this unacceptable injustice would have met it’s end decades ago. He cannot stand the wickedness and He has had enough! “Outward sacrifices are empty if there is no inward reality.”

Isaiah 1:15-17 (TPT)
“When you stretch out your hands to pray, I will hide My eyes from you. Repeat your prayers all you want, but I will not listen, for your hands are stained with innocent blood. Wash yourselves and make yourselves clean. Remove your evil actions from My sight and stop sinning! Learn what it means to do what is good by seeking righteousness and justice! Rescue the oppressed. Uphold the rights of the fatherless and defend the widow’s cause.

This is the Wake-up call for the nation of America and the Bride of Christ. You cannot outrun the consequences of unrighteous filth; the only response is to face them head on and face the Only One Who can deliver, heal, and restore!

Isaiah 1:18-20 (TPT)
“‘Come now and let’s deliberate over the next steps to take together.’ Yahweh promises you over and over: ‘Though your sins stain you like scarlet, I will whiten them like bright, new-fallen snow! Even though they are deep red like crimson, they will be made white like wool!’ If you have a willing heart to let Me help you, and if you will obey Me, you will feast on the blessings of an abundant harvest. But if you are stubborn and refuse to obey, the Sword will eat you instead. The mouth of Yahweh has spoken.”

V. 21-23 (NLT)
“See how Jerusalem, once so faithful, has become a prostitute. Once the home of justice and righteousness, she is now filled with murderers. Once like pure silver, you have become like worthless slag. Once so pure, you are now like watered-down wine. Your leaders are rebels, the companions of thieves. All of them love bribes and demand payoffs, but they refuse to defend the cause of orphans or fight for the rights of widows.

I heard it said once, “To a people without mixture, He will pour out His Spirit without measure.” I fully understand now what the Lord meant when speaking that. It is time to pick which side eternity we will stand upon. Heaven defends the cause of the fatherless and helpless. In fact, the King of Glory, Jesus, the Mighty Warrior defended this cause unto death, death on a cross. He shed His blood as the final atonement, that there be no more shedding of innocent blood.

V. 24-25 (NLT)
“Therefore, the Lord, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the Mighty One of Israel, says, ‘I will take revenge on My enemies and pay back My foes! I will raise My fist against you. I will melt you down and skim off your slag. I will remove all your impurities.'”

THE TIME IS NOW TO DECLARE WAR ON INACTION! CHOOSE LIFE!!! RECOGNIZE OUR DIRE NEED OF HIM AND HIS DELIVERANCE, SEEK HIS FACE ON OUR FACE!!! IF we will obey Him and take Him at His Word, then we will see a Divine Restoration of the irreparable damage taken place in our land.

V. 26-27 (TPT)
“‘I will restore deliverers as in former times and your wise counselors as at the beginning.” Only then will you be called the Righteous City and the Faithful City!’ Yes, Zion will be redeemed with justice and her repentant converts with righteousness.”

James 1:27 (AMP)
“Pure and unblemished religion [as it is expressed in outward acts] in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit and look after the fatherless and the widows in their distress, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the [secular] world.”

Let this be the prayer from the depths of our souls, oh God:

JESUS, I PLEAD YOUR BLOOD OVER MY SINS AND THE SINS OF MY NATION. GOD, END ABORTION AND SEND REVIVAL TO AMERICA!!!

TAKE ACTION: JOIN THE MOVEMENT TO END ABORTION. SIGN THE PETITION. SPREAD THE WORD. BE THE CHANGE AGENT HE WANTS TO USE IN THE EARTH. FOSTER FAMILIES INTO THE KINGDOM. FOSTER CHILDREN. ADOPT. DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY IN OBEDIENCE.

SIGN THE PETITION: THE MORAL OUTCRY
