Kashmir: Your Scroll is Coming

It was October 11, 2019 and I had already been in Pakistan ministering for a few days. I sat on stage for the second night of a four-day Prayer and Peace Festival expectant of what God was going to do. We had seen miraculous healings, deliverances, and salvations in the days and night before; from blind eyes and deaf ears opened, mute speaking, paralyzed people restored and walking, numerous ailments and cancer healed, and so much more!

I found myself gazing with wonder upon the beautiful Pakistani people gathered from all over the nation, thousands of Muslims and Hindus alike; to hear the Gospel and experience the demonstration of the power of Jesus through signs, wonders, and miracles.

During a divine moment of dwelling in the Presence of God and listening to Charlie preach, I closed my eyes and took in a deep breath of His Spirit. As I did, I immediately went into a trance and no longer could hear anything Charlie was saying, but was completely caught up in what the Lord was showing me.

I saw very plainly through the darkness God’s right hand lifted up and there were three distinctly different colors marked on His hand as if they were painted on His hand. From the middle to the outside of His hand was green; from the middle of His hand to the inside and to the thumb was white; and bordering those colors from the middle of His hand through His fingers was red. I knew instantly by the Spirit that it was the conjoining borders of Pakistan, India, and China; for each color represented one of the distinguishing colors of their flags and they were placed in the same position as they touch on a map. It was as if He lifted His right hand to show me what He has stamped on His hand. He then slammed His hand down and the sound of His hand coming down reverberated throughout time and space with the sound of an explosion, as if He was stamping His seal upon something. I then came out of the trance and back to the reality of 300,000 Pakistani people set before me receiving the Gospel that gives life.

As I began to seek the Lord about what I was shown, I heard His voice saying:

“There is going to be a conjoining agreement released between these three nations. Behold, I am ordaining a new thing completely unheard of. It is a new thing that will cause the entire world to stand in awe.

Out of this place there will be a change agent that will completely change the atmosphere in all three nations. From this place, I will lift My hand of power and bring a unification of three nations.

Where violence and persecution once raged over this region upon the mountains; where competition and possession shrouded the land and loosed the spirit of oppression, will I release the breaker scroll. It will tear down age-old foundations and uproot every evil intention.

Where My people have only known submission, they will soon see a new day when they will live freely in the land I have given them. They will be the ones who possess the land of inheritance and though it make no sense how after all this time that they could be in this place; it will be because I have caused these three nations to find a middle ground and caused them to become united upon a higher purpose.

Where they fought to expel you, now they will unite to reinstate you. A cord of three strands is not easily broken and this divine alliance will bring about a greater purpose of force of fulfillment of My plans for this region.”

As the Lord spoke, I could see and discern the region of Kashmir and knew He was speaking of the decades-long conflict over the Himalayan mountain range. There has been a near 80 year-long conflict over the mountainous region of Kashmir with Pakistan, India, and even China all fighting over possession of the land. It has resulted in numerous wars and the Kashmiri people are suffering under the oppression, being displaced, and violence and death has left its mark.

Isaiah 49:16 (AMP) tells us, “Indeed, I have inscribed [a picture of] you on the palms of My hands; Your city walls [Zion] are continually before Me.” One version says He’s “painted”.

I prophesy to you, Kashmir:
Where you have been at a loss of your place like war-torn wanderers desperate for establishment; so will the Lord do a new thing through you and for you. The impossible made possible. He has not forgotten about you and who you are, for He has painted you upon His palm.

A day is coming when a trumpet will sound in the heavens calling forth the unfurling of the scroll of deliverance and establishment that has already been stamped with His seal and thrusted forth with the power of His right arm. This decree, says the Lord, is an unstoppable force and will link together unsuspecting forces for My name’s sake.

Like the unlikely unification of three kings for a greater purpose is Elisha’s day, so will you see an agreement be made among three nations vying for possession of your high places. They will find a greater and unusual reason for unifying not against you, but for you. It will make no sense in the eyes of the world or the wisdom of man. But I will cause that which looks foolish in the eyes of man to confound the wise; and as I do so, I will make you a sovereign land. You will once again inhabit your Promised Land freely and I will return to you your identity and restore your borders. You will never again be dispossessed; for you will find your lost ones returning to you and I will fulfill My promise to you, says the Lord.

Isaiah 49:17-18 (TPT)
“Your children, your builders, are running back to you as those who ruined and destroyed you are running away. Lift up your head and look all around you. See! All your children, your builders, gather to come back to you. As surely as I live, I make this promise,” says Yahweh. “You will wear them all like jewels, as a radiant bride wears her beautiful jewelry!”

Fasting & Feasting 38/40

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 we are on the homestretch to finish the 40, I want to remind us that God has done, is doing, and will continue to do great things in our lives because of our faithfulness to walk out obedience.  God looks on the smallest of acts of obedience and rewards mightily as we set our hearts to glorify Him. Let’s continue all the way to the end because He is worth it and we love Him!

Most of The 40, we have discussed the benefits and blessings of fasting.  Amazing things come from presenting our bodies as loving and living sacrifices to be used by God.  However, yesterday we began to talk about glorifying God in our feasting as well as our fasting.  People that hear me talk about fasting might think that I do not like to eat.  They would be completely wrong.  However, I have found the value in fasting to the glory of God as well as eating to the glory of God.  As we prepare our hearts to return to our normal lifestyle, let’s focus on glorifying God in every area of our lives.  

Today, I let’s return to the prophet Zechariah.  He comes upon the scene at a time in Israel’s history after they have been released from captivity. The people are in their own land finally and cannot seem to continue on rebuilding the city because of the opposition.  Complacency and lethargy set in and they go about their normal way of life not really doing anything spectacular or impressive.  Even in the midst of their indifference, they continue the religious fasting that has been set up for them to carry out.  

Let’s look at the words of Zechariah to the people:

Zechariah 8:19 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘The fast of the fourth month, The fast of the fifth, The fast of the seventh, And the fast of the tenth, Shall be joy and gladness and cheerful feasts For the house of Judah. Therefore love truth and peace…

The people of Israel have four set times during the year that they are fasting and setting apart to The Lord.  However, the temple has not been rebuilt and all of their daily life is languishing cause God is not glorified in their daily routine.  The people are admonished to love truth and peace and be joyful and glad even during the feasts.  As they are obedient, even in their daily feasting and eating, a great reward wil be given them.  

Let’s read more:

Zechariah 8:21-23 The inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, “Let us continue to go and pray before the Lord, And seek the Lord of hosts. I myself will go also.” Yes, many peoples and strong nations Shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, And to pray before the Lord.’ “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”’ 

The inhabitants of peoples, cities, and nations will be drawn to Israel as they continually pray and seek The Lord.  Our daily life is not devoid of divine interaction.  Every moment of our lives should be submitted in obedience to The God of the universe.  As we lay our lives down before Him, He will draw all men to Himself.  

The other thing that is important in this passage is that people are coming from all around because God is with His people.  Wherever we happen to be, grocery store, gas station, school, workplace, or somewhere else, people should realize that God is with us.  We carry the very Spirit and presence of an almighty God inside us as we are submitted in obedience to Him.  He should ever be radiating His glory from us and effecting the atmosphere around us.  

As we talk about the glory of God continuously emanating from our being, Here is a final caution from Psalm 78:

Psalm 78:41 Yes, again and again they tempted God, And limited the Holy One of Israel.

The day to day lives of the Israelites after they were freed from Egypt were rebellion and disobedience.  Because they did not live in obedience and humility, they actually limited the God of the universe from doing what He wanted to do through them.  We must continually seek to remove anything our of our lives that would get in the way of Him moving in us and through us.  We must seek to never limit God in what He wants to do no matter whether we are fasting or feasting!

My encouragement for us today is to continually seek The Lord and His way.  As He reveals a himself to us, may we walk in humility and obedience that He may move how He wants to move, big or small. If it is our heart to seek Him, love Him, and glorify His name at all times, God will be glorified in our fasting as well as our feasting as well as all the time in between.

Jesus, here I am! I desire to be used mightily by You. May every area of my life be completely surrendered to You!  I love You and desire for You to be glorified continually through my life.  Help me to always lift You up and allow You to have free reign to do whatever You want to do in and through my life. 

Practical –

  • Set your heart to seek The Lord
  • Ask Holy Spirit to reveal Himself to you
  • Walk in continual obedience 
  • Invite Him to speak and move in your daily routine as well as your specialized time with Him

Be blessed to experience and release the power of The Resurrected Lord in your daily life. May you never limit him because of disobedience but release a him in all of His fullness to work through you.  As you allow God to move in greater ways during your daily routine, may this propel you into the next level with Him.

5780 -Arise Mouthpieces of Righteousness!

Yesterday began Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year 5780. While in my time with the Lord early yesterday morning, He spoke a truly exciting word that I realized afterwards was a word for this new year. I began to see what He was speaking taking form as I was caught up into a vision of its manifestation in the earth. Great fire filled my spirit as well as determination to see it come to pass.

I heard the Lord saying:

This New Year brings with it a light and the glory that will shine bright. For from the darkness a great light will shine and those who have been like the blind up on the walls feeling their way around will find their way home again.

As I bellow My name out across the expanse of the heavens in this time, My name will wash a multitude of sins as My blood cleanses and renews.

Truly, I am releasing a wave of divine recompense and it will command and demand a swift change that will turn things around. As you come to and near the light, you will find yourself arising higher upon My Holy Hill and as I roar forth My decree, you will see a swift change and turn.

I will place My decree upon your lips and My roar in your lungs to be My Mouthpieces of Righteousness in the land. You will march forth from My Holy Hill and with lips emblazoned, well roar forth My righteousness in the earth.

A mighty army is arising to take nations and generations into My glory for My glory!

I say, “Where are they who would run with torch in hand and run into the darkness, becoming the embodiment of My Light of Life? Where are the ones who would give up their very lives for this great cause? Where are they who have seen My gaze and whose eyes have become seared with My fire?! Where are they, who all they would see would be marked with My fire?! It is these ones who will not see things as they are, but as they will be and will decree and declare them into existence. Great glory marks the path of these ones who will stop at nothing to bring nations with them to My Holy Mountain.”

As He spoke this word, I felt such a strong pull in the spirit that we would see unprecedented waves of souls in this coming year. That the sound of His roar would suddenly shake the scales off the eyelids of the prodigals and they would come running towards the light He has placed in the hands of His Burning Ones. Like a lighthouse set upon a high place in the deep darkness of the night, the Light of Life would pierce through the darkness and beckon Salvation Come!

He has cultivated a generation of shofars in the wilderness in the past season, who will now emerge to bellow forth the roaring blast of His coming and all will see, hear, and know that the time for returning is now!

Isaiah 42:5-9 (TPT)
Here are the words of the true God, Yahweh, the One Who created the starry heavens and stretched them out. He is the One Who formed the earth and filled it with life. He gives breath to every person and spirit to everyone everywhere.
“I, Yahweh, have commissioned you in righteousness to succeed. I will take your hand in love watch over you. I will give you as a covenant for the people, a walking-light to the nations. Your mission is to open blind eyes, to set prisoners free from dark dwellings, and to open prison doors to those who are held by darkness. I am Yahweh; that is My name. I will not give My glory to another god nor my renown to idols. Don’t you see that what I have prophesied has come to pass? And now I am foretelling the future. I declare it to you before it sprouts up.”

Isaiah 60:1-4 (TPT)
Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned, and Yahweh’s glory now streams from you! Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you and the brightness of His glory appears over you! Nations will be attracted to your radiant light and kings to the sunrise-glory of your new day. Lift up your eyes higher! Look all around you and believe, for your sons are returning from far away and your daughters are being tenderly carried home. Watch as they all gather together, eager to come back to you!

For too long many have been delayed and disarrayed in the previous season and the Lord is saying in this New Year, “NO MORE!!!” He is thrusting forth the doors of delay and loosing destiny upon His Bride; everything stolen will be returned with interest. You thought you were in the breaking in the last season; but I say to you, it was only the making!

Isaiah 42:13
Yahweh goes out to battle like a hero and stirs up His passion and zeal like a mighty warrior. Yes, His God-shout is a mighty battle cry; He will triumph heroically over all His foes.

Isaiah 42:16
“I will walk the blind by an unknown way and guide them on paths they’ve never traveled. I will smooth their difficult road and make their dark mysteries bright with light. These are things I will do for them, for I will never abandon My beloved ones. “

Isaiah 60:17b-18 (TPT)
I will install peace and prosperity as your government and righteousness as your overseer. Threats of violence will no longer be heard in your land, nor will destruction and ruin be found within your borders. You will name your walls Salvation and your gates Praise.

As He called forth those whose eyes would be seared with His fire, I was reminded of the total solar eclipse that took place two years ago and the dangers of gazing upon the sun as the moon shifted away from it. Many were left with permanent solar burns on their retinas. Wherever they looked, they would see the shape of the sun when its image was seared into their vision. As we gaze upon The Son, our vision will be seared with His  fire and we will see everything through the lense of His holiness where we will then prophesy it into existence. In this time, there is a special authority being released into the earth to decree and declare and see a swift manifestation unto fruition!

Isaiah 60:19-22
“The sun will no longer be needed to brighten the day, nor the moon to shine at night, for Yahweh will be your unfailing light; your God will be your glory! There will be no more sunsets or new moons, for Yahweh will be your everlasting light and your days of sadness will be over. All your people will be righteous and will permanently possess the land. I planted them there as a tender sapling, the work of My own hands to display My glory. I will multiply the lease of you into a thousand and the weakest one into a mighty nation. I am Yahweh, and when the right time comes, I will accomplish it swiftly!”

Shifting The Heavens 8/40

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!

Today starts week 2, we thank God for His grace and mercy to get us this far, and we ask for divine strength to continue The 40 as we have purposed in our hearts.

Right now, you may not notice anything happening in the earth, but there is a shifting taking place in the heavens. The heavenly realm is moved when a son or daughter of God humbles themselves and lays down their life for The King.  

2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.

God’s eyes are upon you to strengthen you and sustain you.  Invite Him to come and strengthen you even now.

God responds to faith, as we see in Hebrews 11, and fasting is true faith in God as your sustainer.  Humility causes God to move in a mighty way, and fasting and prayer actually turns God’s heart to mercy, grace, and compassion for those crying out to Him.

Consider my two-year old’s favorite story, the story of Jonah.  An unwilling prophet is compelled to obedience to speak a word of judgment to a horribly wicked city.  He speaks a simple word “yet forty days and the city of Nineveh will be overthrown”, and the people believe God.  These are not righteous God-fearing Jews, but pagan idol-worshiping, murdering, adulterous people.  In spite of all this, they believed God.  These people who did not even know our God turned to Him and cried out in repentance, fasting, and prayer for every man and beast.  The king offers this statement, “Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish?”  the heavens were shifted over the region of Nineveh (more than 120,000 people), and God relented from what He said he would do.

How is this possible?  How is this even fair?

Humility, repentance, fasting, and prayer shifted the heavens from judgment to mercy and grace.  God has both justice and mercy, grace and truth in His nature.  However, you have the power to shift the Heavens in your life and even the city or region you live in.  God has placed you where you are for a reason, and He has called you to The 40 for a reason.

As you continue into week 2, let this be an encouragement to you.  You are contending for you, your family, your neighbors, your city, your nation, and the nations around the world.  You have been given the ability to shift the Heavens!  Don’t give up! Don’t back down!  Press in to fulfill your purpose in The Kingdom even if you cannot see the change taking place in front of your eyes.  

Jesus, help us to be the ones that come to you in humility, repentance, fasting, and prayer. We desire to transform our homes, neighborhoods, regions, and nations.  We desire Your Kingdom to come in a mighty way, help us to be the ones that bring about this change, even as you change our hearts to come more into line with Your heart.

Practical – 

  • Read Jonah 3
  • Ask Holy Spirit to give you a heart for where he has placed you
  • Ask to be the change
  • Be obedient to all that God speaks

Be blessed to be the change that transforms every area of society as Holy Spirit propels you into the next level with Him!

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.”

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.”

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.'”
