Your Shecaniah is on the Way!

We are at Day 24 of the 40-Day Breakthrough Fast I felt urged of the Holy Spirit to call coming into the month of May, leading up to Pentecost Sunday on June 9th: Press In and Press Through Till There’s Breakthrough: A Call to Fast and Pray! I hope and pray that you are seeing the Heavens opened up in fresh and new ways and that you are seeing a return even now for your pursuit!

IMG_2778If you are just now joining us, I encourage you to read the post linked above to see what this fast is all about and how you can join in! I urge you to join with us even if you haven’t been following along the whole way and are new to this call to fast and pray. If you have been contending for breakthrough in any area of your life or the lives of those around you, salvations, healings, deliverance, fresh commissioning, release into the new season, victory over enemy interference; then this is for you! I heard Him say that in this brief window of time, if we will press in and press through, we will see breakthrough. This is the time where we will see the transition from Promises Revealed to Promises Fulfilled!

It has been almost two weeks since I have posted anything on here; but things have not silenced themselves on this side. I have felt a very strong pull of the Lord to draw away, draw near to Him, and to go low as I ascend. In this time, greater understanding, wisdom, and revelation has been released from Heaven. The Heavens have been opened in new and greater ways; and we are seeing breakthrough in our lives, our finances, and our situations.

To say that there hasn’t been intense warfare in this time is a farce. Nevertheless, Jesus is Lord! The enemy will always come in with opposition when he feels threatened; so if you are facing demonic darts aimed against you in this season, take heart! You’re on the right track!

All too often, the enemy tends to see more than we do, the great breakthrough that we are standing on the cusp of entering into; so he will begin to hit us with an artillery barrage to stop us dead in our tracks and to hinder us from advancing forth.

As I write this, Holy Spirit is releasing great revelation and exposure of the enemy’s tactics. The definition of artillery barrage is this:

“The artillery usually fires at a continuous steady rate, using high explosive or, historically, shrapnel shells. A barrage might be from a few or many batteries, or even (rarely) from a single gun.
Barrage fire may be defensive to deny or hamper enemy passage through an area or offensive to provide covering fire that neutralizes the enemy in an area through or towards which friendly forces are advancing. Defensive barrages are usually static (or standing or box). Offensive barrages move forward in front of the advancing troops, the pattern of barrage movement may be creeping, rolling or block. Barrage fire is not aimed at specific targets, it is aimed at areas in which there are known or expected targets.”

IMG_3939Beloved, DO NOT ALLOW yourself to become battle-worn from the demonic darts, disturbances, delay, and distractions that the enemy is attempting to use to hamper your passage into victory! Whether the warfare has been solely targeted at you or includes those around you, all is intended to distract and detract you from entering your promises. Instead of giving him ground as he proceeds in his offensive; I urge YOU to STAND on the offensive and to press back and press forward! We are not of those who hunker down, cower, and draw back in fear that leads to destruction and death; we are of those who press on and press forward to the FULL salvation, healing, and deliverance of the soul!!!

Hebrews 10:38-39 (MSG)
“But you need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion. 
It won’t be long now, He’s on the way; He’ll show up most any minute. But anyone who is right with Me thrives on loyal trust; if he cuts and runs, I won’t be very happy. But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.

Yesterday as I was finishing reading Ezra, Holy Spirit revealed something key to me. In that day, the exiles are allowed to return home to Jerusalem and the Temple of the Lord was being rebuilt. The Lord had been so gracious to allow the remnant of His people to return home in an extension of grace. He gave them favor with foreign kings and nations to bring them safely home. He revived them so they could rebuild the Temple, and repair and restore the city. In spite of all that, chapter 9 brings with it grievous news. As soon as the people entered into their promises, they gave themselves over the intermarriage with pagan nations and directly disobeyed God. Where things seemed to be reordered, the enemy brought in a barrage of distractions.

Ezra’s response was one of great mourning and he sat utterly appalled and shocked at the news for an entire day. He then proceeded in a deep cry and prayer of repentance for the sins of the people. He did not cause the fall of the remnant, but he took responsibility for it. He stood upon the wall and in the gap, unable to stand in His Presence.

In Ezra 10Ezra was still praying, confessing, weeping, and lying prostrate in front of the Temple. A large crowd gathered around him, joined him and wept bitterly as if their hearts would break. As I read this, I heard the voice of the Lord say, “Your current condition is not your permanent position!” Then enters Shecaniah. His name means, “one intimate with Yahweh”. He called out the obvious and the reason for which Ezra was unable to stand: the people had given in to the enemy’s tactics and became distracted and disgraced. He then offered a solution in verse 3: “Let us now make a covenant with our God to divorce our pagan wives and to send them away with their children. We will follow the advice given by you and by the others who respect the commands of our God. Let it be done according to the Law of God.”

Shecaniah then said to Ezra in verse 4:
(NLT) – “Get up, for it is your duty to tell us how to proceed in setting things straight. We are behind you, so be strong and take action.”
(NKJV) – “Arise, for this matter is your responsibility. We also are with you. Be of good courage, and do it.”

When all hope seems lost and you find yourself worn down and unable to stand, God will send a Shecaniah to remind you of who you are and Whose you are; and to get you back up on your feet to take your place!

Verse 5 goes on to tell us that Ezra stood up and demanded those who had handed themselves over to sin that they would do as Shecaniah had instructed; and the people proceeded in obedience.

It is time to stand up and demand a cease fire of the enemy; to command victory, and to no longer give in to what stands in the way of victory and breakthrough. The walls are coming down and no longer will we give in and give way to what opposes our ascent!

If there are areas that we have relented in our offense and ascent, we must come before the Lord in humility and repentance as Ezra did; but when the time comes to stand, STAND!!! DO NOT bow to the breaking tactic of shame and guilt, but PRESS ON AND PRESS THROUGH!!!

perseverance

Hebrews 10:38-39 (NLT)
“‘And My righteous ones will live by faith. 
But I will take no pleasure in anyone who turns away.’ But we are not like those who turn away from God to their own destruction. We are the faithful ones, whose souls will be saved.'”

BE STRONG AND TAKE ACTION!!!

I bless you with the strength to stand in offensive warfare to the enemy. In offensive warfare, we have identified the enemy that seeks to destroy us, exposed his strategies, and then infiltrate enemy territory; ready and willing to wage war and defeat the enemy!

I encourage you to read these Scriptures and stand upon them as you ADVANCE!

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (TPT)
“For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims. Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with divine power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide.
 We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One. Since we are armed with such dynamic weaponry, we stand ready to punish any trace of rebellion, as soon as you choose complete obedience.”

Ephesians 6:10-18 (TPT)
“Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of His explosive power flowing in and through you. 

Put on God’s complete set of armor provided for us, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser!
 Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage. Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all things and will rise victorious.

Put on truth as a belt to strengthen you to stand in triumph. Put on holiness as the protective armor that covers your heart.
 Stand on your feet alert, then you’ll always be ready to share the blessings of peace.

In every battle, take faith as your wrap-around shield, for it is able to extinguish the blazing arrows coming at you from the evil one!
 Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken Word of God.

Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all His believers.”

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!!!

The Victorious Tears of a Three-Year-Old

Last night was the premiere of the new film, Unplanned, which is a true story about Abby Johnson, the youngest clinic director of Planned Parenthood; and her life-changing experience in partaking in the abortion of a 13 week-old baby that set her on a course of exposing the deception and lies of abortion unto warring for Life! This movie I believe, will set a course shift in our nation and the nations of the world where abortion is concerned. No longer will the enemy be able to hide under false pretenses as he continuously murders God’s Little Ones!!! He WILL be and IS being exposed, just as Haman was; and he WILL be hanged for it as was Haman. Our Just God will not sit idly by and allow His babies to perish under the death decree of ’73!

This is just the beginning. 46 YEARS IS ENOUGH! 61 MILLION BABIES IS TOO MANY!!! God is raising up His Esther’s and Mordecai’s of this day to overthrow the power of darkness through warfare, fasting, prayer, and relentless pursuit of Justice! THE TIME TO REVERSE HAMAN’S CURSE IS UPON US!

This morning as I set out on errands with my boys, I was reminded while driving that I discovered recently of a Planned Parenthood DIRECTLY BEHIND the hospital my boys were born at! Right next to a hospital that brings forth life, the devil set up his camp to destroy life! HOW DARE HE?!?!!!

I had been unable to until today drive by there and pray. To be honest, I have never gone nor had the opportunity to go to a clinic to pray; only while in passing in other regions and states, and from wherever I was at the time. I felt a strong urging to bypass our turn to the store and to drive to the clinic. My oldest, Azariah, stated that the way we headed wasn’t the way to the store. I replied that we were going to go to a place to pray first. He inquired of what kind of place and why.

I will say that we have been a bit sensitive in our conversations about abortion in front our boys; for how do you explain to a three and two year-old that there are places out in the world that people go to have their babies killed??? How can the minds of young ones so close in age to unborn babies fathom that reality? It is hard enough explaining tragedy and death to them in our world prayers. How can you expect them to understand?….they don’t. Such should the response of the entire world be, unto action to see an end to the scourges of senseless death.

This time I chose not to withhold the truth. The reality is, much of the world, our nation and the Body of Christ included, continues on this path of destruction due to lack of knowledge and God-given revelation. I chose to be honest because part of the mandate and scroll for my life given to me in a divine Heavenly encounter almost a year ago was the scroll of His Little Ones. The mandate Jesus gave me in this encounter was to take up the scroll of His Little Ones (His unborn already aborted, those who are being aborted, and are set to be; and the fatherless ones); and to wage war on the enemy and fight for their lives; to reverse the curse of death and fatherlessness. If I choose to withhold my scroll from my children and imparting it to them, I am not fulfilling what I was sent to the earth to do; I am squandering it and joining those who wasted their life, inheritance, and who failed to advance the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. I am setting them up for failure. 

I explained to Azariah the reality of abortion, in a way that perhaps he might be able to grasp; the reality that the enemy has set up places where people go to have the babies in their tummies killed. I explained the spiritual aspect of it and that we were going there to pray for God’s babies that He would save them, have mercy on us, forgive us, and heal our land. That He would shut down the clinic and every person that would go there would be met by Jesus and someone who could help them and love them into the His Kingdom. That the Spirit of Adoption would arise and squash and destroy the spirit of death through abortion. We prayed specifically, “Jesus, we plead Your blood over our sins and the sins of our nation! God! End abortion and send Revival to America!!!” 

IMG_0991 (2).JPG

He had questions and I answered them truthfully. He even told me we needed to go in to the doctors and tell them not to kill the babies but save them…if only it were that simple, I would storm in every clinic and declare the truth and love those moms and babies into the Kingdom!

As we drove around the curve looking for the building, I was floored to find a sidewalk lined with countless blue pinwheels; and as I gaze at the sign, I was flabbergasted to see an adoption center! Even more astounding was that it was situated DIRECTLY BESIDE the Planned Parenthood! It was an answer to prayer before we even arrived there!

I was surprised to find that there was no one praying outside of it like I know of at countless others around the nation. I felt to find a spot at the highpoint across the street that overlooked both buildings as an act of ascent and taking the high ground in warfare. I was led to play a life-altering song written for the aborted babies by Phil King and Cody Ray Lee, “Not Forgotten”.

Then we began to pray; myself and my two and three year-old baby boys.

We prayed with weeping, repentance, decrees, warfare, taking up my sword as a Gatekeeper of Righteousness and commanding the gates of hell be permanently shut over the region and the gates of Heaven permanently opened. We called forth laborers to this Harvest and the coming one, rising up in bold declaration that WE will be the answer He’s looking for; praying for each one coming in and out of the clinic to have mercy and spare His babies.

Someone has to take a stand, if not us, then who? If not now, then when? If we do not take a stand, then deliverance will come from somewhere else and I and my family will perish. We were appointed for such a time as this! (Esther 4:13-14)

An answer of the future appointed time of the closing of this clinic sits right next door!
I decree and declare as we did this morning, that when these moms come seeking a permanent solution to their temporary crisis, they will be divinely led next door to the adoption center. That the Body of Christ will arise to BE THE ANSWER these women are looking for, through adopting these babies, birth moms and dads, and fostering them into a family, the family of God! The Spirit of Adoption will arise and I have seen in the spirit last year a dual wave coming with a baby boom of all the babies saved from abortion; and of the spiritual wave of those being saved as they awaken to Jesus, the Light of Life! Truly, families will be saved!!! A modern-day Isaiah 49 is coming!

As we drove away at the end of praying and contending, Azariah asked me to play the song again. We listened to it on the way to the store, and Azariah said, “Mommy, Jesus needs to come and beat the enemy!” He gets it. We withhold nothing from them. Out of the mouth of a Mighty Warrior, he declared the victory of Christ over the enemy! Indeed, He has already overcome and holds the keys of death and the grave in His hand!

I sang forth through tears, the song and when we arrived at the store, I heard sniffles from the back seat. I turned around and was shocked to find Azariah crying. I asked why he was crying. He said, “I’m making tears come from my eyes because of the babies being killed. It makes me sad and I don’t want them to die. I listened to the song and it makes me cry because I want the babies to live. I don’t want the enemy to hurt babies. I don’t want to go in there because Elam is a baby and I don’t want the doctor to kill him. I want the babies to be our family. I want to save the babies.”

I was stunned. Through tears, I did explain to him that they wouldn’t kill Elam because he’s not a baby in mommy’s tummy and they’re safe. With that though, I had to try to explain to him why unborn babies are targeted for this act. More than anything I was shocked to see that he really did get it. We prayed again afterwards.

I end with this, may we be like Azariah.
May we be so engrossed in the Kingdom of God that we have the same mindset as he does!
May our eyes be awakened as his were, of the reality of abortion in our land!
May we be provoked to pray, take a stand, act, and be the answer to the crisis brooding over our land!
May we train up our children to fight for the cause of His children!
May we be the answer in the increase of the adoption movement to save babies and children from abortion and being orphans!
May we not hold back any longer but AWAKEN, ARISE, AND ACT!

I urge you to listen to this and be moved to action.

The Breaker is Here!

Yesterday was a day of remembrance. Yesterday was Purim, the day of remembrance for Jews of the deliverance and victory over the death decree issued by Haman to exterminate all of the Jews across the land. God raised Esther up as queen in a kairos moment of time to decree a 3-day fast to seek God for deliverance from Haman’s curse. She risked everything, even her very life, to go before the king on behalf of the salvation of her people. Insert God’s divine favor and providence. The end result: Haman’s hanging, followed by a reversal of the curse on His people, and the destruction of every evil force determined to kill, slaughter, and annihilate them. Complete victory.

We have been in a 40-day world-wide Jesus Fast since March 1 through April 9. Thousands across the nations have taken up a commission of intentional prayer and fasting to see the ending of abortion in our day, and that God would Ekballo a new wave of laborers into the Harvest.

Yesterday marked day 21 of the fast and as I sought the Lord, I felt such a significant breakthrough, even more than I did the day before, being halfway through the fast. In prayer, God reminded me of Daniel 10. Daniel had been 21 days into a fast seeking God for deliverance and salvation for his people. Then God sent a messenger declaring that FROM DAY 1 of his fasting and intentional prayer, his prayer had been heard in the courts of Heaven. FROM DAY 1, angels were commissioned at the declaration and decree of the word of God through his lips. The angels hearken to the Word of God to complete it! (Psalm 103:20) The following three weeks were that of great spiritual warfare in the unseen over the releasing of Heaven’s decree and action. Then God sent a breaker, Michael, to war and defeat the opposing forces, so that His Word would be made manifest.

When I awoke that morning, I had thought it odd that I was completely congested when I had felt fine the night before. However, as He led me back to Daniel, He revealed to me that the congestion I was experiencing was a direct reflection of the congestion in the gateways of the supernatural realm. All demons in hell are in direct opposition to the will of God for the nations coming to fruition. So it is no surprise that there would be a great congestion of demonic forces attempting to block the way of angelic messengers carrying forth the Word and Will of God to the Global Body of Christ. Anything to prevent a Global Harvest from coming to fruition and completion. It is then that He spoke:

My daughter, THE YEAR OF THE LORD’S FAVOR HAS COME!

I AM HERE TO BRING THE BREAKER, YES, THE HAMMER! A time of great breaking, yes, a smashing will take place. Every stubborn resistance and wall of opposition is coming down and being destroyed NOW!

No longer will there be continuous road blocks severing the connection to total Kingdom access; but there will be UNENDING ACCESS in the days to come. I HAVE COME TO BE THE RECONCILIATOR to what was once broken and disjointed. I have come to BREAK OPEN THE PORTALS that have become blocked. No longer will it be said, “the way is blocked!” UNDEFILED CONNECTION! I have dispatched My Messengers, My Burning Ones, to clear the path and make it ready! All congestion is breaking off RIGHT NOW!!!

Throughout the day, I experienced total breakthrough and victory over every enemy attack that I experienced. THIS is what God wants to do. He wants to be the breaker of every yoke, every attack, every prison door, every shackle, every opposition. The Breaker comes when we fast! He can’t help but to respond to the hunger that is released! Isaiah 58 is evidence of this.

Fasting is a gift from God in that as we give Him the gift and offering of ourselves that He would be glorified through our sacrifice, praise, and obedience through fasting; He returns a great eternal reward back to us that not only affects us personally, but fasting literally shifts the spirit realm over nations!!! Fasting is an act bigger than ourselves. 

Isaiah 58:6-7 (AMP)
“[Rather] is this not the fast which I choose, to undo the bonds of wickedness, to tear to pieces the ropes of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free and break apart every [enslaving] yoke? Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into the house; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not to hide yourself from [the needs of] your own flesh and blood?”

Isaiah 58:8-12 (TPT)
“Then My favor will bathe you in sunlight until you are like the dawn bursting through a dark night. And then suddenly your healing will manifest. You will see your righteousness march out before you, and the glory of Yahweh will protect you from all harm!
Then Yahweh will answer you when you pray. When you cry out for help, He will say, ‘I am here.’ If you banish every form of oppression, the scornful accusation, and vicious slander, and if you offer yourselves in compassion for the hungry and relieve those in misery, then your dawning light will rise in the darkness and your gloom will turn into noonday splendor!
Yahweh will always guide you where to go and what to do. He will fill you with refreshment even when you are in a dry, difficult place. He will continually restore strength to you, so you will flourish like a well-watered garden and like an ever-flowing, trustworthy spring of blessing.
Your people will rebuild long-deserted ruins, building anew on foundation laid long before you. You will be known as Repairers of the Cities and Restorers of Communities.”

Daniel 10:12-14 (AMP)
“Then he said to me, ‘Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was standing in opposition to me for twenty-one days. Then, behold, Michael, one of the chief [of the celestial] princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision is in regard to the days yet to come.'”

Awakening is Breaking Forth!

In the past few weeks since returning home after The Send, I have encountered extreme warfare that I believe has been rolling across many in the Body of Christ in this hour of transition into the new era. Being truly lit on fire during my time there, I immediately recognized a slumbering spirit partnered with a spirit of disillusionment and disorientation rising up in opposition. I returned with a fresh commission and suddenly it became extremely difficult and took great pressing to connect into the dream stream with the Lord and to see and hear clearly.
I get up rather early in the morning to seek Him and found that every morning a slumbering spirit kept attacking me; so overwhelmingly strong was its attempts. I have spent the past few weeks battling and warring against it, with much frustration I must admit. I can attest that yesterday morning I broke through. I was in the middle of reading Isaiah 46 and struggling to stay focused. When I got to verse 13 and read it, immediately it was as if something snapped that I could even hear in the spirit; and I came out of it right then and was completely awake and aware.

Isaiah 46:13 (TPT)
“I am bringing My righteousness closer to you; it is not far off. My deliverance will not be delayed, for I will set My salvation in Zion for Israel My glory!”

Isaiah 46:13 (NLT)
“For I am ready to set things right, not in the distant future, but right now! I am ready to save Jerusalem and show My glory to Israel.”

I knew without a doubt that what took place resonated across time and space, representing what He is releasing throughout the nations; signifying the moment of season’s change. Where I had been warring to hear and see through the fog stationed before me, suddenly I perceived with undimmed eyes and heard with unclogged ears. He told me to go back a chapter to Isaiah 45 and to remember a verse from it that I shared in two posts, Salvation Through a Babe and 2019: It’s All About Righteousness, a few months ago; to remember what He declared then.

Isaiah 45:8 (TPT)
“Shower down righteousness, O heavens above. Let the clouds drip with deliverance! Let earth’s womb open and bear salvation’s fruit, with righteousness rising up beside it! I, Yahweh, have created them all!”

As I read the verse, I was overcome with joyful expectation and a greater understanding of a word He has been speaking to Jeremiah and I this year, “A storm is coming!” It is then that I heard Him say:

America, your days are numbered.
Numbered are the days in which you will remain in your current condition. Numbered are the days in which the hand of the enemy has played you and delayed you from entering into your spring season. Where there was once a dried up winter laden with a bitter freeze and cold; the warmth of the Son’s rays are stretching forth to melt away the dead of winter. To your astonishment, you will find that as the snow and ice melts away, life is exposed and unearthed beneath the blanket of slumbering. The bondage you have known for far too long as an arctic winter will keep you in darkness no longer.

Look out upon the horizon and see the sun breaking forth! Look out and see the new life shooting up from the nourished soil. I take the things once dried up and frozen in darkness and I breathe new life in the change of season.

I have seen and heard the hunger and prayers offered up as incense before My Throne and the bowls have tipped, running over! Behold, I have watched as the tear-stained prayers and petitions and the rumbling growls of the hungry have crept and swept across My Throne! They have washed My feet as an offering of praise.

Truly I tell you, just as I brought eternal honor to My servant, Mary for her pure devotion and adoration; so will I honor and bring an eternal remembrance to the fresh offering being given in this hour. The sacrifice has been and will forever be worth it!

I say to you, DO NOT RELENT IN YOUR PURSUIT for just as the offering has been spilled out before and upon My feet; you will see it turn into a steady stream flowing from My Throne to the floodgates. They will burst open at the force of the stream crashing into them and you will see them returned back to you in storm clouds bringing the abundance of rain!

DO YOU HEAR THE TRICKLE NOW? DO YOU PERCEIVE IT? CHANGE IS IN THE AIR!

The more that you seek My face in the secret place, the greater the outpouring of Heaven! Gaze out upon your land and prophesy that which I have spoken. Declare the increase of LIFE that I have shown you. DO NOT BE SILENT, but allow your awakened state to call forth the awakening and the ascension! Look out and see RIGHTEOUSNESS RISING! RIGHTEOUSNESS IS COMING! I am ready to make My goodness pass before you! I will cast My Glory upon you!

An almond tree is the first tree to awaken with Spring’s arrival. Almond means “awake.”

All this past weekend I kept seeing 111 and 1111 literally everywhere I turned, way more than normal. Those numbers are symbolic of transition and awakening. I even saw an almond tree signifying awakening and season’s change, among other things, like in Jeremiah 1. I knew that something was coming forth in the spirit then and that a breaker was being released. He spoke when the lights switched on yesterday morning, “I am coming forth to complete what I began!”

Jeremiah 1:11-12 (AMP)
“The word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘Jeremiah, what do you see?’ And I said, ‘I see the branch of an almond tree.’ Then the Lord said to me, ‘You have seen well, for I am [actively] watching over My word to fulfill it.'”

It is no coincidence either that a change in seasons in the natural with the start of Spring tomorrow is occurring in this moment of time. All of creation is responding to the shift taking place!

Song of Solomon 2:10-13 (TPT)
“The one I love calls to me: 
Arise, My dearest. Hurry, My darling. Come away with Me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to My heart and lead you out. For NOW IS THE TIME, My beautiful one. THE SEASON HAS CHANGED, THE BONDAGE OF YOUR BARREN WINTER HAS ENDED, and the season of hiding is over and gone. THE RAINS HAVE SOAKED THE EARTH and left it bright with blossoming flowers. The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, FILLING THE AIR WITH SONGS TO AWAKEN YOU AND GUIDE YOU FORTH.
CAN YOU NOT DISCERN THIS NEW DAY OF DESTINY BREAKING FORTH AROUND YOU?
THE EARLY SIGNS OF MY PURPOSES AND PLANS ARE BURSTING FORTH. THE BUDDING VINES OF NEW LIFE ARE NOW BLOOMING EVERYWHERE.
 The fragrance of their flowers whispers, ‘THERE IS CHANGE IN THE AIR.’
ARISE, My love, My beautiful companion, and RUN WITH ME TO THE HIGHER PLACE. For NOW IS THE TIME TO ARISE AND COME AWAY WITH ME.”

Today marks day 50 of the 50 Days of Prayer for Life and the ending of abortion, that I have been a part of. Last night was also the premiere of the new film, Unplanned, a true story about Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director’s dramatic transformation to loving God and exposing the spirit of abortion. We will also be hitting the halfway point in our 40-day Jesus Fast tomorrow, the day of Spring equinox. California is experiencing a Super Bloom of wildflowers after the fires swept through the state last year.

I truly believe that the Word of the Lord above is in response to the prayers, petitions, and fasting taking place globally for an ending of abortion and Ekballo, a resurgence of Life, an emergence of awakened Burning Ones, and a commission of laborers into the Harvest. In pondering on His word that He has heard the rumbling growls of the hungry and of the increase in 111 awakening signs, He spoke through my mouth, Ecclesiastes 11:1.

Ecclesiastes 11:1 (AMP)
“Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, [be diligently active, make thoughtful decisions], for you will find it after many days.”

Beloved, NOW is the hour in which the sacrifices and offerings of praise are being returned to us. NOW we will see the first fruits of love and obedience! I have shared on these things for the past year; but I feel such a strong pull in the spirit to surge through and charge forth! DO NOT RELENT OR GIVE IN, FOR WE ARE NOT THOSE WHO DRAW BACK IN FEAR UNTO DEATH! WE ARE THOSE WHO PRESS IN AND PRESS FORWARD TO THE FULL SALVATION, HEALING, AND DELIVERANCE OF THE SOUL!!! 

THE BREAKER IS HERE! DO YOU NOT PERCEIVE IT? 

SEASON’S CHANGE. WINTER IS OVER. THE RAINS OF HEAVEN ARE HERE. LIFE IS BURSTING FORTH EVERYWHERE. IT’S TIME TO AWAKEN, ARISE, AND ASCEND!!!

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.

Salvation Through a Babe

Night before last, I was deeply grieved to learn that the state of New York had achieved a ‘new height’. On Tuesday, on the 46th anniversary of the passing of Roe v. Wade, the legislation that legalized abortion across the United States, much of New York was in celebration for the set to pass Reproductive Health Act, a bill legalizing abortion all the way up until birth. It ‘removes abortion from the definition of homicide and from the penal code completely.’ This means that anyone who causes harm to or the death of an unborn baby cannot face capital punishment. There also would no longer be restrictions on who can perform abortions.

One World Trade Center boasting pink in celebration of the Reproductive Health Act.

The governor of New York has pressed hard for abortion until birth and even after; he has said there is no place for ‘extreme conservatives’ in the state.

To bring reality to this bill if reality hasn’t already set in, let me put a few faces to this bill…
These are the faces of one they say is deserving of a death sentence. It is atrociously unfathomable that anyone would think they deserved to die simply for living their days in the darkness of my womb, being knit together perfectly by the hand of their loving Father. No matter the gestation age, Father was and is knitting together a precious gift when He places a child within our womb. They have a destiny and purpose, as does every single life, every child placed within the womb of their mother. These very lives, every life, is worth fighting for.

When reading his statement at the end of the article tagged above, the Lord began to impress upon me HIS Truth and speak to me regarding Cuomo’s statement, and I’m sure the statement of many across the U.S. He led me to Isaiah 45:11-12 (TPT): “Listen to what Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel, the One who shaped him, has to say: ‘Why do you question Me about the destiny of My children or tell Me what to do with My children and what I have made? I created the earth and populated it with people. With My own hands, I spread out the cosmos and then commanded the starry host to shine!'”

Isaiah 45:9-11 (MSG):
“But doom to you who fight your Maker—you’re a pot at odds with the potter! Does clay talk back to the potter: ‘What are you doing? What clumsy fingers!’ Would a sperm say to a father, ‘Who gave you permission to use me to make a baby?’ Or a fetus to a mother, ‘Why have you cooped me up in this belly?’ Thus God, the Holy of Israel, Israel’s Maker, says: ‘Do you question who or what I’m making? Are you telling Me what I can or cannot do? I made earth, and I created man and woman to live on it.'”

I was overwhelmed by Holy Spirit when reading this passage and then He brought me to verse 8 before it, Isaiah 45:8 (TPT): “Shower down righteousness, O heavens above. Let the clouds drip with deliverance! Let earth’s womb open and bear salvation’s fruit, with righteousness rising up beside it! I, Yahweh, have created all of them!”

The Lord began to bring to mind the word that He spoke for this year that you can find here: 2019: It’s All About Righteousness. I then heard Him say: On the heels of RIGHTEOUSNESS RESTORED, the heavens will DRIP WITH DELIVERANCE. A great travail will GIVE BIRTH TO THE FRUIT OF SALVATION in the land. A METAMORPHOSIS will take place and RIGHTEOUSNESS will be the marking point unto salvation. A CONVERGENCE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND LIFE WILL BUILD A COHESIVE FOUNDATION FOR REVIVAL TO EMERGE.

Ephesians 5:13-14 (TPT)
“Whatever the revelation-light exposes, it will also correct, and everything that reveals truth is light to the soul. This is why the Scripture says, ‘Arise, you sleeper! Rise up from the dead and the Anointed One will shine His light into you!’”

We must be a woke people to recognize our need for righteousness, deliverance, and salvation. The Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation shatters all deception, corrects and renews mindsets. If we are sleeping in apathy, complacency, and silence, God views us as if we are dead. It is time for the Light of Jesus to shine upon us and wake us up from the dead! 

Isaiah 45:20-25 (TPT)
“Come together! Assemble yourselves! Draw near, you refugees from among the nations. Those who parade their powerless wooden idols have no revelation knowledge. They keep on praying to gods who cannot save them. Declare what is to be and state your case. Go ahead and take counsel together. Who knew all about this and declared it long ago? Was it not I, Yahweh? There is no god apart from Me. I am a righteous God and a Savior. There is no one you can compare to Me. So turn your heart to Me, face Me now, and be saved wherever you are, even from the ends of the earth, for I alone am God, and there is no other. I make this solemn oath to you in My own name; this word sent forth from My mouth in righteousness will not return unfulfilled: ‘Truly every knee will bow before Me and every tongue will solemnly swear allegiance to Me!’ All will say of Me, ‘Yes! Only in Yahweh do I find righteousness and strength!’ And all who were angry with Me will come before Me and regret it! In Yahweh, all of Israel’s offspring will triumph and shine!”

God is not shocked or surprised by this death decree and sentencing. He knew it from the beginning. He is calling us forth with an invitation to AWAKEN, ASSEMBLE, REPENT, AND ARISE AS ADVOCATES UNTO ACTION!!!

He then led me to Isaiah 9:2 (TPT): “Those who walked in darkness have seen a radiant light shining upon them. They once lived in the shadows of death, but now a glorious light has dawned!”

Let the reality of what Isaiah said sink in. We’re looking at a nation of people walking in deep darkness. In Isaiah 8:20-22, the Lord says, “Listen to the teaching and instruction of the Lord! If their speech does not line up with His Word, they will have no light of dawn.” He goes on to say that they will wander in lack and become famished. In response they will be enraged and curse their king and Lord. Whether in the heavens or earth, they will find only despair, darkness, and fearful gloom, and be thrust into obscure darkness. I would say that the state of our nation greatly resembles this picture. However, Isaiah begins to prophesy THE DELIVERER for the people:

Isaiah 9:6-7 (TPT)
“A child has been born to us; a Son has been given to us. The responsibility of complete dominion (government) will rest on His shoulders, and His name will be: The Wonderful One! The Extraordinary Strategist! The Mighty God! The Father of Eternity! The Prince of Peace! Great and vast is His dominion. He will bring immeasurable peace and prosperity. He will rule on David’s throne and over David’s kingdom to establish and uphold it by promoting justice and righteousness from this time forward and forevermore. The marvelous passion that the Lord Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies, has for His people will ensure that it is finished!”

As Isaiah prophesied THE HOPE FOR SALVATION, I prophesy out of the deepest cry of my spirit:
Those walking in darkness have SEEN A GREAT LIGHT! The Light of Jesus is ripping through the darkness and shattering the gloom and doom cloud of death on a nation and generation! No longer will the blood-red stain of the murder of the innocent mark this nation for judgement; for a divine revelation of righteousness will be the drawback in preparation for the mass waves of deliverance to come. The only blood we will see is the cleansing blood of Jesus rolling across America from coast to coast; bringing cleansing in it’s crests! I decree and declare that just as the shift from judgement to divine justice took place when the first breath of life was expelled from a babe, a Savior, King Jesus, wrapped in cloth; so will divine justice break forth like the dawn with the breath of a generation who will never know the reality of genocide. The darkness of deception was obliterated the very moment that our Savior entered this world, The Son was born. When the blood of Jesus comes as a red wave to wash America white as snow, we will see LIFE burst forth from the rays of the dawn and ecstatic JOY will emanate in the heavens. It will be said across all the land, “Look at this great harvest of LIFE!
The Lord says, “Soon I will raise My hand and signal to the nations, and they will come with your little boys bundled in their arms and your little daughters carried on their shoulders. Kings will be their babysitters and queens their nursing mothers. I will fight those who fight you, I Myself will save your children. I will cause your enemies to feast on their own flesh and drink rivers of their own blood. Then you and all the world will know that I am Yahweh, your Savior and Redeemer, and I will never disappoint those who entwine their hearts with Mine.”

I have seen a variety of responses to the heart-breaking news and the majority of the responses are centered around the debauchery of New York (much like we’ve seen with California, etc.); and how many wouldn’t want to be living there right now for the judgement that is coming.

David saw a heavenly exchange between Father and Jesus in Psalm 2:7-9 (NLT): “The king proclaims the Lord’s decree: The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become Your Father. Only ask, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, the whole earth as Your possession. You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots.’” 

Knowing the responses and reflecting upon it and the truth of Psalm 2, I leave you with this truth and charge:

It is easy to allow apathy and complacency to take hold when it comes to news of regions outside of our own, outside of our own reality. However, I will challenge you in that your mindset might need to change. Yes, it’s possible that New York may not be where you are stationed right now and the judgement of God will always come upon a people in opposition to His Word. Make no mistake, the choices of one person, one city, one state absolutely directly affects you; as does the judgement that comes. Instead of disowning the state and people for their choices, we must realize that we cannot outrun the fallout. It is our responsibility as those who call ourselves ‘sons and daughters’ to take ownership of the actions of our nation and people, especially for those who refuse to do so. The judgement of God will fall upon this nation as a whole; with the outcome of the judgement being up to us.

We can either choose to mentally and emotionally neuter ourselves from what is set before us and suffer the consequences as an entire nation; or we can join God in what He wants to come from this: A divine awakening of sons and daughters that will stand up to the enemy operating in the unseen realm and fall to our knees in repentance on behalf of our country and people. Jeremiah and I have chosen to take God’s Word as our own and to live by it. When He said to only ask and He will give us the nations as our inheritance, the ends of the earth, our possession; we have taken Him at His word. Joshua 1:3 says wherever we set foot, He will give the land to us as an inheritance. This also means that wherever you point yourself to, He will give it to you. We personally have walked the streets of New York in intense prayer and spiritual warfare for the land five years ago when we began our faith journey. New York is a gateway city and the enemy is hard-pressed in war over it. We have pointed our faces and prayers to New York AND walked its land, and we REFUSE TO ALLOW THE ENEMY TO GAIN POSSESSION OF THIS GATEWAY, OF OUR INHERITANCE!!! WE WILL FIGHT UNTIL WE SEE THE HEAD OF HAMAN ROLL ACROSS THE GROUND AND HIS DEATH DECREE REVERSED!!!

I challenge you to AWAKE, ASSEMBLE, REPENT, AND ARISE TO ACTION on the behalf of the state, people, and nation! This is our mission: 

Ephesians 5:8-9 (TPT)
“Once your life was full of sin’s darkness, but now you have the very light of our Lord shining through you because of your union with Him. Your mission is to live as children flooded with His revelation-light! And the supernatural fruits of His light will be seen in you—goodness, righteousness, and truth. Then you will learn to choose what is beautiful to our Lord.”

In the next day or two, I will share a word from the Lord specifically about what actions we are to take and what He is doing.
