The Secret of The 40 5/40

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!

Having completed day 4, you have given a tithe of the 40 to the Lord.  This first fruit may have been difficult to achieve, but Father God is pleased with this sweet offering.

Today, I would like to reveal the secret of The 40, and why it is important to set apart a special period of fasting and prayer for this amount of time.

 This is an excerpt from The Prophetic Whisper by Richard Gazowsky –

“I am going to show you a secret vulnerability in Satan’s kingdom. His weakness is in the flies.” Later that day, we went to the Carmel Public Library and looked up the word “fly”…I discovered that the meaning of Beelzebub, one of the names of Satan is, “Lord of the Flies”…Scientists have discovered that flies have a reproductive period that lasts from four hours to over forty days, depending on the species. When pest controllers go to eradicate flies in a certain area, they spray pesticides every day for a forty-day period. If they destroy the reproductive cycles of presently existing flies, they can kill off a whole generation of future flies. I then saw what God was trying to show me…if a Christian will pray consistently for a forty day period he will be able to conquer most satanic strongholds in his life.’

This revelation was astounding to me when I discovered it. No wonder we see all the major heroes of the faith fasting and praying The 40.  They were systematically destroying the reproductive rights of the enemy in their lives.  They desired to walk in The Fullness of The Kingdom and would not allow anything to hold them back.

Most of us know the story of David and Goliath.  The giant spews his venom in 1 Samuel 17:8-11.  By doing this, he is reproducing this fear from his lips into the hearts of Saul and the army. How long did he do this? Verse 16 confirms for forty days.

In Genesis 7 it rained forty days that the earth would be cleansed of its filth.

In Deuteronomy 8 The Israelites wandered in the desert forty years to destroy the unbelief of a generation.

In Deuteronomy 9:11 Moses fasted The 40 to receive the ten commandments.

In Deuteronomy 9:18 Moses fasts The 40 again to intercede for the salvation of a wicked people.

Elijah was sustained in 1 Kings 19 for The 40 to break the curse of Jezebel in the land.

It is possible that the people of Nineveh in Jonah 3 fasted and prayed The 40 for God’s mercy and grace.

Jesus fasted The 40 in preparation to overcome the enemy’s temptations.

The secret of The 40 is to overcome every demonic stronghold in your life and stop it from reproducing that you may truly be propelled into all that God has for you!!!

This is why the enemy will use any means necessary to keep you from The 40.  Twice in the first three days of the fast, someone has offered to buy me lunch.  Be careful of the enemy using the care and hospitality of others to lure you away from the power of The 40 being manifested in your life!

Jesus, give us the ability to go The 40 and receive the right to cut off the head of the Goliaths in our lives. We desire to be propelled into our destinies by the total defeat of the enemy!

Practical – 

Read 1 Samuel 17 and meditate on the power of The 40 to destroy the reproductive rights of the enemy.

Study the lives of those who did The 40 and how they changed history.

Be blessed to endure throughout The 40 that you may destroy the enemy and glorify God through your life!

What’s It Worth To You? 3/40

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!

Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!”

Today, I will choose to be thankful and bless The Lord no matter how my body may feel.  Right now, if you have given up food, it is normal for your body to go through some of the same symptoms of withdrawal.  Too much salt, sugar, and caffeine in our daily lives will cause headaches, nausea, achy limbs, a general feeling of weakness… as these are removed, and the body rids itself of toxins.  The good news is that these fleshly oppositions should pass today or tomorrow completely.

If you have decided to participate in this fast, the only question now is –

What’s it worth to you? 

In our daily lives, we rarely have to give up anything of true value.  However, when we do, we must calculate if it is truly worth it.  There is a great difference between when you look into your purse or wallet and decide what you will pay for a shirt, book, or meal; and when you must consider the price you would pay for college, a car, or a house.  An object is only worth as much as we are willing to give for it.  Careful thought is put into how much a man will pay for a ring because you cannot put a price on the one that you really love.

As we fast and go through the daily troubles and temptations (i.e. your boss buying your favorite lunch for everyone the first day of the fast) let us look to Jesus and consider how much He is worth to us.

Maybe this is where you find yourself today:

2 Corinthians 4:8-11 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

Troubles, persecutions, and the death of the enemy may come upon us in many different ways, but even as our flesh is delivered to death it is a necessary sacrifice to manifest the life of Jesus in our flesh! 

May the life of Jesus shine out of you today and bring glory to The Father!

Something else to think about. In the middle of a discourse on denying your flesh, Jesus asks these two questions in Mark 8:36-37: For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

What is a soul truly worth? 

Jesus bled, suffered, and died that your soul might be set free.  That is how much your soul is worth to Him.

How much is Jesus truly worth to You?

How much do you value the lost souls around you?

Jesus, I am willing to do whatever it takes and give up whatever it costs that You may be glorified and that lost souls may come into Your Kingdom!!! Help me to truly value You not just in my words but in my daily actions of obedience!

Practical –

• Read Mark 8:34-38 and contemplate the value of a soul.

• Make sure you have included a list of lost or backslidden people in your daily prayer time.

• Listen and obey when Holy Spirit brings up specific things to do for these individuals.

Be blessed to know the true value of your soul and the souls of those around you as you are propelled into the next level!!!

Spain, It’s Time for Your Awakening!

Here I am again…doing the very thing I have longed to do in the depths of my heart, though I have been in a five year sabbatical. These past five years have been wonderful and have born amazing fruit, growth, fiery babies, and much more. In these years, I have delved into the secret place, the forge, the Throneroom; and in it all, Father has been so faithful to mold me and shape me into a new creation with His defined purpose.

There were times of sending when we sent Jeremiah out into the nations and incredible fruit  and souls were harvested for His Glory. I didn’t know that Papa would have a few surprises up His sleeve and would release me to finally be a Sent One again this year…not once, but twice! How good He is!

So here I sit, in the still breeze of a cool Spanish evening in Alicante, taking it all in. This marks my third time to Spain and this trip bears a different branding and release. You can find past words from our time in Spain under the “Spain” tab to the right.

In the past year, the Lord has refined one of our roles in the Kingdom of God; which is to go forth as insurgents, infiltrating enemy territory and to break open pent up wells, unlocked barred gates, and to usher in the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth. I felt very strongly the Lord emphasizing Ezekiel 37, of which He highlighted to us during our prior visit. The last time we were in Spain in February of 2014, our friend said that upon the night before our arrival, an unusually strong wind came through of which they had not encountered before. He felt that God was bringing something new upon the winds and our arrival was a sign of that. We went there decree a thing that it may be established.

This recent encounter however, I felt a strong emphasis on the second part. God came to Ezekiel and asked him if he thought the valley of dead, dry bones could live again. He then told Ezekiel to speak a prophetic message to the bones to come to life. He declared that His response to the prophetic decree would be that He would breathe the breath of His Spirit upon the bones that they would reassemble and come to life. As I dwelt on that part, I began to hear a great rattling in the Spirit that was as deafening as the wind I heard in the last post titled, To Spain for the Glory of His Name.

I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “The dry bones are coming to life! They are assembling into a mighty army! Can you see them? Can you hear them? Look out and see them arise to be My Fire-Brands!” 

I then received a vision of Jesus and as I gazed into His eyes, He looked down and in His hands was the nation of Spain. He had cared for it tenderly in the palm of His hands. He then took out a match and struck it upon the nation, lighting a fire. The spark seemed small, but with one swift breath from His lips, the whole nation was lit ablaze within His hands. With great delight and joy, He stoked the flame until it spilled out from His hands and poured forth like oil.

We have been questioned many times before on if Spain really needs us to go and there are misconceptions on the relational status of the Church in Spain with Jesus. The reality is that Spain is predominantly Catholic by status and religion. There is little to none of a presence of young people in the Church because they are not looking for religion, and have yet to be introduced to a relationship with the Man, Jesus. It is very difficult to find a Spanish church here, for most of the churches have been pioneered or are being run by immigrants, especially from Argentina. In talking with our host, Pastor Abel this afternoon, he stated that there are still about 3,500 towns in Spain lacking a church. His desire is to see churches planted in every part of the nation. This is what Paul went to Spain to do. He set his sights on Spain as  Jesus set His sights on Spain, which was known as the ends of the earth to the west in those days. Just as Paul did, we go forth that we may impart some spiritual gift and blessing, that a mutual encouragement may come forth; and that we might train, equip, and send out the Spanish people of this land to take their nation for Jesus. Jesus is after souls, and so are we! 

‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭37:10-14‬ ‭(NLT‬‬)
“So I spoke the message as He commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army. Then He said to me, ‘Son of man, these bones represent the people of Israel. They are saying, ‘We have become old, dry bones—all hope is gone. Our nation is finished.’ Therefore, prophesy to them and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: O My people, I will open your graves of exile and cause you to rise again. Then I will bring you back to the land of Israel. When this happens, O My people, you will know that I am the Lord. I will put my Spirit in you, and you will live again and return home to your own land. Then you will know that I, the Lord, have spoken, and I have done what I said. Yes, the Lord has spoken!’”

One specific Kingdom assignment that I have in being here is to prophesy Awakening, Life, and to call forth the Mighty Army that has been enlisted here in Spain. What we learn from this encounter with Ezekiel is this: You need only open your mouth to declare the Word of the Lord, and Heaven and earth responds! I feel very strongly that the earth will respond to this Word and that there will be a manifestation of an earthquake reflecting the spiritual shift as it did in Ezekiel’s day. This was prophesied back last year of which I shared a few days ago in the post, To Spain for the Glory of His Name. Upon my research, there have been small-sale earthquakes and tremors taking place in this region for the past few weeks, which is rather uncommon it seems. All of creation responds to the Word of the Lord.

Will you believe with us for this Mighty Army of the Lord in Spain? Will you contend with us for a harvest of souls greater than has been seen in the history of Spain to come forth? I truly believe that great power is released through the prayers of the saints arising upon the altar of the Lord, and that the bowls of Heaven are tipping right now to bear forth a flood of revival never before seen in Spain!

Bored, Bored,Bored…

Daily Encouragement –

Are you bored? Do you feel like you are just wasting time until something better comes along? Too much time and too little to do? Be careful that you do not get a dull and lifeless heart.

Dull hearts come from not knowing Me and lead to not seeking Me. All the idols of this world seek to fatten your heart and desensitize you to the things that really matter. Just as an abundance of good food will make you fat and sluggish, so an abundance of this world will make you dull-hearted.

Come to Me! I am an all-consuming fire!!! Unpredictable and uncontrollable, I will burn away all of the unclean things and make you full of life, energy, and love once again! 

Come to Me, the Living, Everlasting King of the nations. Become one with Me, the Everlasting Flame, and watch the boredom and dullness melt away. You will become like Me as you seek and know Me!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 10:21, 14, 10.
For the shepherds have become dull-hearted,And have not sought the Lord; Therefore they shall not prosper, And all their flocks shall be scattered.
Everyone is dull-hearted, without knowledge…
But the Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King…
