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.'”

Can You Hear The Stars Singing?

It is a historic window of time we are in at the moment given that fifty years ago this week, July 16 – July 24, man first set foot on the moon with the Apollo 11 space mission. As I was sharing with my boys this morning about the moon landing that took place this day in 1969 and showing photos and video footage, the Lord began to remind me of a word He spoke on January 3rd of this year that I had typed up but never felt released to share:

During my early morning seeking time with the Lord recently, He began to speak to me and peak my wonder of creation and of the stars. As I gazed out the front window in my living room set high upon the wall, I saw the moon rising in star-mingled darkness in preparation to give way to the sun’s light. In that place, I heard the Lord say:

“The stars are testifying of the Light that is coming. Here in the night, they light up the sky with glimmers of life as a true and pure reflection of My Son rising on the horizon.

Long before the light and rays of the Son ever appear to shine upon the earth, the celestial body tells of the One Who brings light into existence.

They raise up a sound and song of light, yes, explosive light; and they gather together in a divine convergence of the emergence of the Son. Each one, though unique, tells the story of their Maker. Each one testifies of the glory and grace of the One Who fashioned them into being. An explosive power resonates throughout time and space bringing each into their purpose. Let the fire of their existence rise into a glorious bonfire of magnification.”

Job 38:4-7 (AMP)
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you know and have understanding. Who determined the measurements [of the earth], if you know? Or who stretched the [measuring] line on it? On what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God (angels) shouted for joy?”

Isaiah 44:23 (TPT)
“Sing! Starry sky above break loose with singing, for Yahweh has finished it! Shout! Earth deep below, give up your shout! Mountains high, break out with joyous songs of praise! Let the forest choirs join in, every tree singing its notes! For Yahweh has paid the ransom price for you.”

I began to feel a strong urging to release this word and I believe that this fifty year mark signifies a transformational shift in the spirit as well as in all of creation. Neil Armstrong is famously quoted for saying as he set foot on the surface of the moon, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

The Lord brought that quote to mind as I pondered on this word and I believe that He is saying, “You have entered into a divine opportunity to arise with the celestial body in the expanse of the heavens and birth a new song, a new sound, and a new magnification of the Son.

As you finish out 2019 and head into 2020, you will see an emergence of the Global Body of Christ being awakened by the Son’s Light rising upon a new dawn, a new horizon. A deep understanding of the Day of the Lord that is rising upon you will shake dead and dormant ones awake and will thrust forth Burning Ones into their destiny to reflect the Son’s Light in the earth. Just as you cannot number the stars in the sky, so too, will you be unable to number the vastness of new sound waves I am releasing through these Burning Ones as they charge forth into the night and carry with them Dawn’s Burning Light!

No longer will there be the “hard and dark places,” for I have erased that term from the very essence of vocabulary. From now on, a heralding cry will echo forth through time and space, beckoning the lost to be gathered into My bosom. The cry and song of My Burning Ones will cause the earth to tremble and the heavens to roar and pour forth Salvation’s Song! Surely, I will finish what I started!”

Psalm 148:1-6 (TPT)
The Cosmic Chorus of Praise
“Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Let the skies be filled with praise and the highest heavens with the shouts of glory! Go ahead—praise Him, all you His messengers! Praise Him some more, all you heavenly hosts! Keep it up, sun and moon! Don’t stop now, all you twinkling stars of light! Take it up even higher—up to the highest heavens, until the cosmic chorus thunders His praise! Let the entire universe erupt with praise to God. From nothing to something He spoke and created it all. He established the cosmos to last forever, and He stands behind His commands so His orders will never be revoked.”

Revelation 22:16 (AMP)
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you and to give you assurance of these things for the churches. I am the Root (the Source, the Life) and the Offspring of David, the radiant and bright Morning Star.”

Beloved, I have been saying this for what feels like ages, but the brevity of it bears an eternal witness in the heavens: THE TIME TO ARISE AND SHINE IS UPON YOU!!! THE LIGHT HAS COME!!! DO NOT WASTE ANOTHER MOMENT ON THAT WHICH DOES NOT BEAR AN ETERNAL WEIGHT AND AN ETERNAL FRUIT!!!

Isaiah 60:1-5 (AMP)
“Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come, and the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you. For in fact, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness will cover the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you [Jerusalem] and His glory and brilliance will be seen on you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes around you and see; they all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from far away, and your daughters will be looked after at their side. Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will tremble [with joy] and rejoice because the abundant wealth of the seas will be brought to you, the wealth of the nations will come to you.”

Isaiah 60:19-22 (AMP)
“The sun will no longer be your light by day, nor shall the bright glow of the moon give light to you, but the Lord will be an everlasting light for you; and your God will be your glory and splendor. Your sun will no longer set, nor will your moon wane; for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be over. Then all your people will be [uncompromisingly and consistently] righteous; they will possess the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified. The smallest one will become a thousand (a clan), and the least one a mighty nation. I, the Lord, will quicken it in its [appointed] time.”

Greater Than Jesus?

Daily Encouragement Dec 5 –

Are you greater than I am? Are you truly following Me? Are you walking as I walked? 

I was sent into the world to bear witness of The Father, The Truth. I never prayed to be taken out of the world or moved somewhere else. This world is hard and fear, son, darkness, and death are around every corner. But do not fear! I am with you! 

I never prayed for Myself or My own to be taken out of the horrible unpleasant situations we were in. Where I was, was where I was sent! That is where I was sent to serve. 

When you pray to be taken out of the darkness instead of shining My light where you are, you are saying you are more important and greater than I Myself did. Pray for strength to shine brightly and bear witness of the Truth for I am always with you no matter where you are!!! I love you My child!!!

John 17:15-19  I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but that You keep them and protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth [set them apart for Your purposes, make them holy]; Your word is truth. 18 Just as You commissioned and sent Me into the world, I also have commissioned and sent them (believers) into the world. 19 For their sake [e]I sanctify Myself [to do Your will], so that they also may be sanctified [set apart, dedicated, made holy] in [Your] truth.

Complete Victory!!!

Daily Encouragement –

What are you worried about? Why do you live in fear? I have overcome the world!!! I have complete victory for eternity!!! Your mind, body, and soul are able to remain in perfect peace because I have already won. Come to Me and walk totally in this victory!!! 

This world is full of trouble, pain, sorrow, and death. But this world and the ruler of it have been soundly defeated. You must no longer live in fear or submission to the world or it’s temptations. Come close to Me, The Complete Victor, and receive courage, confidence, and joy that you are on the winning side. 

Even now, begin to walk with Me in a deeper way so My victory may be upon you in the midst of this dark world. Press in to Me, and I will give you all you need to not only survive, but thrive right where you are. I love you My child!!!

John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]

Roll Away The Stones!!!

Daily Encouragement – 
 
Roll away the stones!!! Inside you are stones of unbelief, doubt, pride, selfishness… These stones cover the death in your life, but as you hide it away, you are hiding it from the life I want to bring. I have abundant life to bring to these dark, unseen places. 
 
If you can, believe that I want to heal and bring life instead of judgment and punishment. If you can believe, you will see My glory!!! 
 
My glory is to take the dead, dark places in you and bring them life and healing. My glory is to take broken places in you and cause restoration. It is My glory revealed to make weakness strong, bring the dead to life again, and freedom to captive. 
 
Come and believe and see My glory revealed!!! I love you My child!!!
 
John 11:38-40 “Take away the stone,” he said. “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.” 40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
