Kentucky: Prophecy Coming Forth

Recently this past week, I happened to peruse past an article that Kentucky governor, Matt Bevin had shared from President Trump’s Facebook that not only caught my attention; but also left me leaping and shouting with the fire of God. My kids came running to where I was asking what was going on as I was uncontrollably shouting out in tongues. ūüėĀ¬†IMG_1104-0To clarify what this is about, I will give a brief backstory. In August of 2017, I awoke from a dream immediately unable to recall it; but heard Holy Spirit very clearly say the word, “Kentucky”. For a few days I dwelt on it for understanding and sought out the dream I had no recollection of, knowing assuredly it was of great importance. ¬†In praying over it, the Lord graciously gave me the dream in the form of a vision. This set me on a path of searching out the revival history of Kentucky, knowing not one single thing about the state. What I discovered left me on fire and astounded.

In the very heart of Kentucky in 1776, the first settlement town in the west named Harrodsburg had been erected that cradled the fires of the Wilderness Revival. Such an incredible outpouring took place that completely transformed the region and it began to spread. This very soil became the seedbed for the Second Great Awakening; for it was from this Revival that ministers began going into all of America and eventually the world, carrying the Gospel to the unreached.

Over the next year and a half, the Lord revealed to me many of His plans for the state, that can be found in the posts, Into the Wilderness We Go! and Kentucky: Your Dawn is Awakening!.

In November of last year, the Lord opened up a miraculous door and called us to take a faith journey to Harrodsburg to redig the wells of Revival in the land that had affected the nations. Our whole life together has been a crazy adventure built on total faith in His ways, so it was exciting to do it again. I had a dream seared into my heart and spirit that what I had seen in the dream, that He would lead us to the very spot somehow that we may strike the ground as we had done with Jesus in my dream.

IMG_6859We spent five days praying over the land from the high places, decreeing every word that God had spoken in times past, as well as every word, dream, Scripture, vision and declaration He had revealed to us. On the last day, we visited Shakertown Village, where the Shaker movement was birthed. We prayed and prophesied over the village and I had earnestly searched the land, knowing that I would discover the very place Jesus led us to in the dream. We finished our time there and as we were leaving, my spirit a bit down having not seen it yet, I, still filled with hope, took one final glance down a road I had not noticed before. To my bewilderment, there it was! There, we commenced doing the very thing we had done in the spirit; we struck the ground and called for Revival to rise again in Harrodsburg, which had become very much a disheveled, broken down town riddled with the spirit of poverty and pharmakeia (sorcery and drugs).

HE IS FAITHFUL WHO PROMISED!!!

When I saw this article from Governor Bevin, I was already filled with excitement because I had noticed how after we went in like insurgents and infiltrated enemy strongholds to plant Holy Spirit Revival bombs, that the state of Kentucky began to change. Since November 2018, employment rates have skyrocketed as businesses are sowing their seeds into the state. Kentucky is led by a God-fearing man who will not relent or back down in seeing the state become the first abortion-free state as he fights for Life. God is releasing blessings abundantly as in Isaiah 49.

What really stirred up the fire in my spirit though was reading the first sentence where Apple is investing millions in Harrodsburg!!!

“It’s amazing, in the middle of horse country, you have … a range of people from skilled trades to scientists, right in the middle of this small town, making the best glass in the world. And we know that because we test it all.”

“This is the best glass in the world, and it would surprise many people because … you see this little small town, and you have state-of-the-art technology and state-of-the-art manufacturing, and that’s what we see as the future of manufacturing in the United States, and that’s what our advanced manufacturing fun is all about.”

THIS is the power of our decree and agreement with the will and Word of the Lord! THIS is the power of simple obedience!!! 


The Lord reminded me of a word He spoke on November 4, 2018 and we are seeing it come into fruition in these days. This article serves as a beautiful reminder of that.

My daughter, a reconnecting is emerging in rebuilding the foundation of holiness. As this emergence of convergence takes place, a cataclysmic explosion will take place that will usher in the descent of Heaven’s holy fire. As this takes place, a bringing together of what was once broken will come forth.

In this place, a whole new creation will come forth and all the nations will looks on and say, “What is this place? We have seen nothing like it before! Is this really Kentucky? Is this really the one that was once shrinking and diminishing in its poverty state?¬†Now, it’s flourishing and new life is springing forth! The economy of this state is excelling in ways beyond even the leading locations across the United States! How can this be? And yet,we see this before our very eyes! There is much to learn from this unified state! Come! Let us go to Kentucky and be taught in the ways of transformation and reformation! Surely, we could bring this back to our home and see the same result!”

Increase Expectation 25/40

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 are at day 25! ¬†It is hard to imagine before The 40 that we could be so far in and a little over two weeks from completing the commitment God has placed in our hearts. ¬†The spiritual benefits that come from the daily overcoming of obstacles to remain faithful in worship to The King of The Universe will one day astound us all. ¬†Never give in to the fleshly desires now in exchange for the eternal reward that is being built up for you and everyone around you. ¬†Let’s press on and press in together.

By this time, the weight of the impossible has probably tried to crush you or in the very least discourage you.  Several people have indicated to me this week that they were worried about me physically.  One even said that I was crazy and out of my mind.  However, as long as we are partnered with Jesus and what He has for us, I would rather be walking in the mind of Christ than my own mind anyway.  

It should not be a surprise to any of us that trusted spiritual and especially worldly influences around us do not understand the depth of what is taking place.  The God of great grace and mercy has called us out, or we have submitted to Him out of worship, in order for the impossible to take place.  When God moves, it is not understood completely by the most spiritual people we could ever think of.  We desire the perfect grace and mercy of God to be made manifest in us, our families, neighborhoods, workplaces, regions, and nations.  As much as we think we may understand Him and His ways, we do not.

We can see clearly that hunger and expectation has the ability to change the situations around us. ¬†The woman with the issue of blood (Luke 8:43-48) only wanted to get close enough to touch Jesus’ garment. ¬†She did what was illegal and could have gotten her stoned to death by pushing,maybe even crawling, through a crowd of people and just to put her “unclean” hands on Jesus. ¬†It was her hunger and expectation that drove her to do what others would not. ¬†This was the faith that healed and restored her. ¬†This is where we are today. We are all believing for the “impossible” things to happen for the glory of God!

But what if these things do not happen during or after The 40? 

What if we go through The 40 and do not see anything change? 

What if our hunger and expectation are seemingly not rewarded?

Take heart, my brothers and sisters, this will align us on the same level as one “after God’s own heart”, David. ¬†David was hand picked by the Lord and anointed to be king long before it actually takes place. David has to live a life of character and actually doing the job of the king, like challenging Goliath, before he ever saw the promotion that God had anointed him for. ¬†Eventually, he became king and did great for a while.

However, it seems David had a weakness for women. ¬†Because David decided to give in to this weakness just one time, it led him to deception, adultery, murder, and pain. ¬†The prophet Nathan reveals that God has seen it all and finally David repents. ¬†What is the judgment for all of this sin? David’s recently born son would die. This is where we pick up in the scripture reading for today:

2 Samuel 12:15-16 And the Lord struck the child that Uriah’s wife bore to David, and it became ill. David therefore pleaded with God for the child, and David fasted and went in and lay all night on the ground.

Even though David knew he deserved the judgment and punishment that God had said, he increases his expectation that God’s great mercy and grace is greater than his sin. ¬†David comes in humility, prayer, and fasting and cries out to God for mercy for his baby. ¬†He does this for 7 days until the baby dies. ¬†His servants do not even want to tell him that his baby has died because they are unsure what he will do when he finds out the worst has happened. ¬†David’s hopes, desires, and expectations for the life of his baby because of the mercy of God are about to be crushed. ¬†What will his response be? ¬†

I do not know what the physicians were telling him and Bathsheba, but God had told him the baby would die. ¬†That seems to be a very definite thing to me. ¬†Surely, trusted and godly people came in after a few days of prayer and fasting and felt the need to prepare him for the worst. ¬†There was no reason for him to expect that God would do anything different than He Himself had said. ¬†However, David increased expectation in The God of grace and mercy. Throwing himself at the feet of The Great Shepherd and walking through the valley of the shadow of death, David is rewarded with seemingly nothing. ¬†Here is David’s response when he finds out this baby is dead:

Vs. 20 So David arose from the ground, washed and anointed himself, and changed his clothes; and he went into the house of the Lord and worshiped. Then he went to his own house; and when he requested, they set food before him, and he ate. 

He cleans himself up, puts on his best worship attire, and goes to The house of The Lord and worships.  Great expectations unmet did not crush David and cause him to turn away, but causes him to be able to praise through the pain of unmet expectation.  This does not make sense to anyone and they ask him about it.

Vs. 21¬†Then his servants said to him, ‚ÄúWhat is this that you have done? You fasted and wept for the child while he was alive, but when the child died, you arose and ate food.‚ÄĚ

His expectations and prayers were unmet, and he chose to worship and adore God anyway because he knew His God. The Great God of Mercy and Grace was still the same whether David got what he desired or not.  

Vs. 22-23 And he said, ‚ÄúWhile the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, ‚ÄėWho can tell whether the Lord will be gracious to me, that the child may live?‚Äô But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.‚ÄĚ

David knew the value in hunger and increasing expectation to work mighty things in the heavenly realm. ¬†It had not happened the way he wanted. ¬†However, because of a right heart of hunger and expectation to pray the greatest prayer he could think of, he was prepared to praise even through the pain. ¬†Immediately after this, Solomon is born and God names him Jedidiah which means beloved of the Lord. David’s hunger and expectation caused a blessing to take place that was not the way David prayed or wanted, but came about at a different time and different way.¬†

This is the kind of hunger, expectation, and faith that I want!

No matter the difficulties, trials, and impossibilities that we bring to the Lord during this time, may we all increase our hunger and expectation to see the impossible made manifest into reality. Even if these things do not take place how we want or think they should, we must pray for the best and cry out to God. Today, increase your hunger and expectation and may this increase your worship through both met and unmet expectations.

Jesus, increase my hunger and expectation today. I want to have faith for the impossible miracles to take place no matter what I see or hear.  Help me to trust You to bring about the greatest good as my expectations are increased, and I cry out to You for the greatest good. Help me to never be discouraged or back down from believing the best no matter what I may see with my eyes or hear with my ears.  

Practical –

  • Take a good look at what you are praying for.
  • Ask Holy Spirit to help you increase expectation and hunger to believe in the greatest possible good
  • Ask for strength, grace, and mercy for the faith to continually believe for the impossible
  • Ask for worship and fresh faith to replace discouragement or unbelief that tries to come in

Be blessed with an exponential increase of expectation and hunger to continuously believe for what seems impossible to man. May all discouragement and unbelief be replaced with worship and even more increased expectation because of new revelations of The Great God of Mercy and Grace in your life..

The New Thing 14/40

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 the final day of week two ends I want to congratulate you on continuing one-third of the way through the fast.  God has been doing amazing things and will continue to do so. I can see where He has personally strengthened and sustained me in so many ways already, and I am looking forward to the transformation that will continue to take place in us all.  Keep up the good work!!!

I want to encourage you today from a word that God began to speak to me this morning.

Isaiah 43:18-19 “Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.

Right now, God is doing a new thing in a new way!¬† No longer will you look at the past to define your future, but you will look to Him.¬† He said, “I am The Way!”¬† You do not need to look anywhere else, but straight to Him.¬† He is the source of revival water, and it flows from Him because He is The Living Water.¬† He is The Life that all men need.

Almighty God cannot be held back by the barriers of humanity.  He will break them all down with the weight of His presence.  The good news for us is that He will flow quickly and easily to the lowest spot around.  He will fill to overflowing the ones who have made themselves ready. 

Nothing can stop the presence of The Lord from completely consuming those who have their face set on seeking Him.¬† Though it may take longer than you want, He will flood you with His presence.¬† He will overwhelm you with His love.¬† He will cover you with His glory, and lift you up to be seated in heavenly place with Him.¬† He says, Come to Me you humble, hungry, and thirsty, and I will give you more than you could ever handle. I will give you all of Me!”¬†¬†

The next chapter in Isaiah has a promise that continues this thought:

Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring

Right now, you and I are making ourselves ready.¬† We are hungering in the physical because we desire to be truly hungry in the spiritual.¬† All that God has for us, all that He wants to do, cannot be held back if we are hungry and thirsty for him.¬† David Hogan says this, “Fasting is a good way to get hungry.”¬† This statement is so simple, yet so profound.¬† We have been getting hungry for 14 days now with more to go.

What can God do with a people who are truly hungry and thirsty for Him?

Look around you.  Now is the time that we need God more than ever before.  Crazy things are happening around us.  Wars, tragedies, griefs, depression, and despair consume the airways and conversations everywhere that we go.  The generations seem to be getting worse and worse in every area.  Crime is up, morality is down, and no one seems to care.

I need to be dry and needy for God to come and consume me.  I need to be the dry and cracked ground praying for an outpouring of the flooding presence of The Water of Life.  I need to be completely consumed in His presence that family, friends, neighbors, and nations are transformed by the greatness of the well of life overflowing out of me.  

Will you join me?

Are you hungry?

Are you thirsty?

Are you ready?

Jesus, I ask right now that You will make be completely hungry and thirsty for You and Your presence!  I want to be overfilled beyond capacity.  Overflow me that I may influence family, friends, neighbors, and nations with You, the River of Life.  Take me as a willing vessel and use me however You see fit.  

Practical –¬†

  • Ask Holy Spirit to make you hungry and thirsty for more
  • Give up something extra that steals your time, and give that time to seeking Him
  • Be obedient to everything that He speaks to you

Be blessed with the new thing that God is doing right now. May you be forever hungry and thirsty, yet forever filled with the fullness of the overflowing presence of an all-consuming God as you are propelled into the next level with Him.

Propelled Into The Next Level

It has been a great to joy to sit back and watch how God has used Katie to take over most of the encouragement this year.  With what God is speaking now, I felt it necessary to share this encouragement that will help propel you to the next level in your relationship with God.

Are you in a place of weary waiting?  Have you stood on the promises of God and cried out for so long and nothing seems to happen?  Do you desire a change of circumstances? Are you desperate for doors to be opened? Are you hungry for new power to be released?

Do you desire to be propelled to the next level?!?!

Many may not receive this as a word of encouragement.  Most will ignore it and continue in the same old way of life. Some will accept it as truth, but few will take this word of encouragement and put it into practice and be powerfully propelled into new levels with the Lord.

The principle I am going to speak of was followed by every major player in both the Old and New Testament. Moses, David, Elisha, Peter, Paul, John and so many more all followed this principle and were propelled into new levels of power when they did.  It seems strange in knowing all this that anyone who truly follows Christ would be unwilling to participate in this practice.  It is never easy for any of us to deny our flesh and follow in the footsteps of Christ.  However, obedience will rocket us into the exponential increase that we all desire. 

For those who truly desire to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, let us hear what He has to say about this great power available for all who partake in it.

Matthew 6:16 “…when you fast…”¬†¬†

What did He say?¬† Is that in red? Did Jesus actually say the “F” word?¬† Why didn’t He say IF you fast”? Isn’t fasting just an option for true extremists?

How many of you have been in church for years and never heard anything about fasting?¬† Obviously, this verse must be taken out of context or some obscure part that no one ever reads.¬† I am sorry to say that this is right in the middle of probably the most famous sermon of all time “The Sermon on the Mount”.¬† From this discourse we get, “The Beatitudes”, “The Lord’s Prayer”, “Love your enemies”, and many of the other more famous words of Jesus.

You can read the context for yourself in Matthew 6, but here is a quick refresher.

Matthew 6:3-4But when you give, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,¬†that your giving may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret¬†will Himself reward you¬†openly.”

“When you give” is a passage that probably comes up regularly during offering time in the church. Here, the Father rewards the giving that is done out of a right heart.¬† Nobody would deny these words of Jesus as being essential to growth in the Lord.

Matthew 6:6 “…when you pray,¬†go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who¬†is¬†in the secret¬†place;¬†and your Father who sees in secret will reward you¬†openly.”

Here is another widely known passage that is followed by the Model Prayer.  Everyone would affirm that it is necessary to pray and learn how to pray more and better to proceed in your walk with God.  The Father who sees these prayers will reward you for the time spent praying and crying out to Him.

The passage from Matthew 6:16-18 continues in the same parallel repeating twice, “…when you fast…”.¬†The thought is completed as verse 18 ends your Father who sees in secret will reward you¬†openly.”

Surely Jesus would not put fasting on the same level as giving and praying in the essential steps to being propelled into the next level in The Kingdom.¬† Whenever I bring up this topic, people groan and look at me like some sort of alien. “I like food too much”, or “that is too hard,” or “you are crazy”, are some of the common responses that I have received just by bringing up one or two verses as I have mentioned above.¬† I encourage you to study fasting throughout the New and Old Testament and see the great men that walked it out and what they gained as a lifestyle of fasting with prayer out of a right heart.

img_6674.jpgIf nothing else, Jesus Himself left us the perfect example. After Jesus’ baptism in Matthew 3, He was led by The Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. This was the time of testing that would prove who Jesus really was.¬† What did Jesus do to prepare and continue to stand strong in the midst of the greatest onslaught of the enemy? At the beginning of¬†Matthew 4, we see plainly that Jesus fasted forty days. He gave up the worldly way of gaining strength and power and took up the spiritual empowerment of fasting and prayer.¬† Because of this, He was ready for all the enemy had to throw at Him.

Later in Matthew 17:20-21, prayer and fasting come up again as a dynamite combination that allows the impossible to be accomplished through your life.¬† So many of us want a secret formula that will help us overcome the enemy, or the secret weapon that will destroy the enemies’ hold on our lives. Here it is:

I say to you,¬†if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‚ÄėMove from here to there,‚Äô and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.¬†¬†However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.‚ÄĚ

If you need more incentive here are just some of the benefits of fasting and praying with the right heart:

  1. Corporate Freedom (The Salvation of a City) Jonah 3:1-10

Here an entire city, over 120,000 are saved because of repentance, fasting and prayer

2.  The Healing of the Land2 Chronicles 7:13-14

If you study it out, the main outward expression of humbling yourself before God is fasting.

3. To Influence Government and Save a PeopleEsther 4:16-17

Esther, Mordecai, and the Jewish people fasted and prayed and God brought deliverance.

4. Personal Freedom and BreakthroughIsaiah 58

This is probably the best place to view many of the numerous blessings of fasting and prayer out of a right heart.

5. Empowerment of the AngelicDaniel 9:3-4, 20-21

6. Opening of the Eyes to Spiritual RealmDaniel 10:2-11, Acts 10:30

7. Gaining UnderstandingDaniel 9:3-10:12

There are many more benefits and blessings that can be found throughout Scripture if you care to study the topic further.

Before I end, I want to give a few simple definitions of fasting.

Lou Engle states “Fasting and prayer is designed to humble yourself, reveal your flesh, and purify your worship“.

David Hogan says “Fasting is a good way to get hungry“.

A personal definition that I have come up with is giving up a legitimate pleasure as a sacrifice to gain breakthrough and a deepening relationship with the Lord.  We do this because we love Jesus, and He is worth it!

I want to encourage you to begin cultivating a lifestyle of prayer and fasting into your Christian walk.  Every new level in my personal life has been marked by a new commitment to prayer, fasting, and spending time in The Word.

THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO INCREASE!!!

From Monday, August 26th РFriday, October 4th God has called me to consecrate a 40 day fast for several reasons not the least of which is Revival and souls for The Kingdom.  I encourage you to fast one, two, or all of the three major areas that we are controlled by:

  1. Food
  2. Media
  3. Sleep

Allow God to lead you into the next level of fasting that you may be propelled into the next level with Him.

A word of advice when fasting food more than three days, please study the right way not only to fast but also to break a fast. Often the world understands the health benefits of fasting better than Christians understand the spiritual benefits. Because of this, there are many websites that can aid in fasting and breaking extended fasts.

If you would like to carry on further study here are the three best books I have found on prayer and fasting;

  1. The Atomic Power with God thru Fasting and Prayer by Franklin Hall
  2. Shaping History through Prayer and Fasting by Derek Prince
  3. The Jesus Fast by Lou Engle

May the Lord truly bless you as you prepare to be propelled into the next level with Him.  Always remember:

Hebrews 11:6 “…He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

May you receive the fullness of The Great Rewarder!!!

Unbreakable!!!

Daily Encouragement –

How solid are you? Do you feel like you are being tossed back and forth in this crazy life? Do you waver to and fro because of the situations around you? 

I am the tried and true firm foundation!!! I am immovable! I am the cornerstone and anything of value must be built upon Me or it will fail and fall! 

There are so many things in the world that seem sure, but when they are the foundation, they will fail and fall. Love is not a good foundation for a marriage. Neither is profit the best starting place for a business. I must be the foundation and cornerstone for all you do. I desire for you to become immovable and unbreakable in Me!!!

Come to Me! Strengthen your ties to the firm foundation and see all the blessings and benefits that flow to you. I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 28:15-16 “… For we have made lies our refuge, And under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.‚ÄĚ 16 Therefore thus says the Lord God: ‚ÄúBehold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.”
