Ireland: Robes and Scrolls

Yesterday morning I saw a vision of the nation of Ireland from an aerial view. Suddenly, a mighty stirring took place and a great wind began to roar. Out of the sea arose a fierce dragon. It began to the south and though storms would normally continue their course out into the deep sea, this beast set its course northwest. When its eyes caught sight of Ireland, it took a hard right and barreled towards the west coast of Ireland, bent on devouring much within its fierce jaws; for its appetite was yet quenched. In an unexpected, unheard of occurrence and approach, the dragon advanced and was bent on satisfying its hunger. With teeth bared, snarling as it approached its target, suddenly a mighty hand arose up from the depths of the sea and stopped the dragon dead in its tracks; as it smashed into the hand like a brick wall. As it collided with the undaunted and powerful hand of opposition, it smashed and broke into scattered pieces in the sea. The grave threat to the Heart of Ireland was stifled and destroyed.

I heard the Lord say, “The enemy has set his sights on you, Ireland; and has set out to sift you like wheat. He has determined to devour you and swallow you up in your sin. Behold, the seas are stirring and rumbling as the clouds gather. What is looked at as an abnormality and a phenomenon will arise from the Celtic Sea and thunder towards the Heart of Ireland, for a body cannot survive without a beating heart. Yes, the beast hungers for your heart, Ireland! No amount of preparation could prepare you enough to save you from the teeth of the devourer. Truly, I declare, the only thing that can save you is My victorious right hand. NOW is the time to take heed the words of My prophets and to turn your face to Me and away from your wicked ways! I have established a remnant of righteousness within your walls to contend to and seek My hand on your behalf. They are the ones of power and of steadfastness. BUT, it is up to you, the course of your days to come. IF you will arise out of your I-land ways, THEN I will step in like a mighty warrior and make you MY-land again. I will stop fear and death in its tracks and restore you to your rightful place. I will return to you in ways unprecedented and in greater proportions than you have never seen before. Oh, do not take this warning offhandedly; but take it to heart and act as My Spirit directs.”

Then I saw from Heaven, a pair of massive hands holding a glimmering golden sword, point it downward and with great force, strike the heart of Ireland. As the sword struck the soil, it pierced to the core and great power surged from the sword of Heaven and a great wave swept across the land in a golden glow of outpouring and glory. The sound of the waves roared and on the crest of the waves rode the One Who is in charge the Angel Armies. He was clothed in the Glory of God, bearing a sword poised to the skies, Faithful and True was written upon Him, with Fire blazing in His eyes and a voice that rumbled throughout the realm of the spirit louder than a thousand thunders combined; causing the earth to quake and bow down before Him.

Following Him were a band of angels dispatched to carry out Kingdom assignments that had been laid down. In their hands, they held small, simple boxes. When they arrived at homes around the nation, they dropped off boxes on the doorsteps of those who had received the Call of God in times past; and for various reasons, chose to lay them down and take up the cloaks of ‘SELF’ — to appease one’s fleshly desires and hunger. The angels set the boxes down and would knock on the door, then fly off. As people answered their doors, they were wearing sleeping robes and written on them in bold black letters were words of the things they exchanged their call for — ‘bitterness’, ‘hatred’, ‘lust’, ‘indulgence’, ‘fear’, ‘unforgiveness’, ‘abortion’, ‘witchcraft’, ‘rebellion’, ‘unworthy’, ‘denial’. Upon each one’s eyes were sleeping masks so they couldn’t even see, they only heard.

As they began to feel around, many felt the boxes on the ground and picked them up. Some were so curious as to what was in the boxes that they took off the blinders and were shocked to find the very thing they had said “no” to in their hands again. Just then, the enemy crept in to try and shame many into throwing down their second chance at sonship and their destiny.

I could hear the voice of the Father crying out, “DON’T PUT DOWN WHAT I HAVE GIVEN YOU AGAIN! DON’T GIVE IN! DON’T GIVE UP YOUR GIFT! DON’T PUT YOUR SLUMBERING BACK ON! RIP OFF THAT CLOAK OF CONDEMNATION AND OPEN YOUR BOX OF DESTINY! TEAR OFF THE CLOAK THAT WAS NEVER MEANT FOR YOU! LOOK IN YOUR BOX AND SEE THE ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT I DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU! SEE THE SCROLL THAT I DREAMED UP FOR YOUR LIFE! TAKE HOLD OF IT AND SAY, ‘YES!’ TO ME! PUT ON YOUR ROBE AND JOIN ME! DON’T GO BACK TO BEING BLIND AND ASLEEP, BUT, AWAKEN!!! IT’S TIME! LEAVE YOUR COMFORTS IN THE ‘SAFETY’ OF YOUR ‘HOME’, AND PARTNER WITH ME TO SET THE NATIONS ABLAZE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!”

Luke 12:37-38 (TPT)
“What great joy is ahead for the awakened ones who are waiting for the Master’s return! He Himself will become their servant and wait on them at his table as He passes by. 38 He may appear at midnight or even later, but what great joy for the awakened ones whenever He comes!”

Romans 13:11 (AMP)
“Do this, knowing that this is a critical time. It is already the hour for you to awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency]; for our salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed [in Christ].”

Romans 13:12-14 (TPT)
“Night’s darkness is dissolving away as a new day of destiny dawns. So we must once and for all strip away what is done in the shadows of darkness, removing it like filthy clothes. And once and for all we clothe ourselves with the radiance of light as our weapon. 13 We must live honorably, surrounded by the light of this new day, not in the darkness of drunkenness and debauchery, not in promiscuity and sensuality, not being argumentative or jealous of others. 14 Instead fully immerse yourselves into the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, and don’t waste even a moment’s thought on your former identity to awaken its selfish desires.”

Job 8:5-7 (AMP)
“If you would [diligently] seek God and implore the compassion and favor of the Almighty, then, if you are pure and upright, surely now He will awaken for you and restore your righteous place. Though your beginning was insignificant, yet your end will greatly increase.”

Beloved, we must pray for the nation of Ireland. I believe in my spirit that there will be a storm that will arise out of the sea set to bring destruction and harm to the western coast of Ireland. This storm will be no joke and we must pray that the enemy’s plan be halted and destroyed in the name of Jesus! I believe that God is giving a chance to turn. For the Global Body of Christ to turn to Him in intercession on behalf of Ireland, and the nation of Ireland to turn to Him and claim their rightful inheritance. There is rich revival history there and the nations eternally benefited from the outpouring of Holy Spirit that erupted there.

This word is a call to prayer for the nation of Ireland; and it is also a trumpet call for the awakening of many in the Global Body of Christ. This word is not exclusive to Ireland; but it is a second chance of the Lord for many who turned down the Lord in a season that was purposed to be a “YES” season. It is time to remove the blinders and scales to the Call of God, times and seasons, and the purpose for which you were created! Put off all of the heaviness and shame that is not of the Lord and rise up to the destiny set apart for you! Choose to deny the enemy of his stake at your destiny and choose to lay down every weight which so easily entangles; choose to lay everything down for the sake of the world!

Your active and participating presence in the Kingdom of God is essential to carrying out the Great Commission to see all of the nations come to know Jesus and Global Revival sweep across the furthest reaches of the earth.

A Harvest You Didn’t Plant

On Saturday morning while enjoying my quiet time with the Lord in prayer and worship, I opened my Bible and when I looked at where it opened to, I heard the voice of the Lord pronounce something so clearly. Open in my Bible was Galatians 6 and the title of that section was, “We Harvest What We Plant.” As I read it, the Lord declared in a booming voice in the room, “YOU WILL HARVEST WHAT YOU DIDN’T PLANT.” 

I began to inquire of the Lord His meaning in that statement. I am not a foreigner to the understanding of sowing and reaping. I am also not one to think it odd that He would make such a bold statement contrary to what Paul wrote when writing his letter to the Galatians, for He is the One Who does all things impossible and beyond our comprehension. I am even further not surprised that He spoke this because He has over the past few months sporadically stated and revealed the same thing, in varying ways; whether through words or visions. As I sought Him, He spoke the following:

“NOW is the time that you will step into the new and the unheard of! NOW is the time that you will step into a new harvest! NOW is the time that you will harvest what you didn’t plant! NOW is the time that the natural order of things no longer is the only way; for I am making a new way! A harvest has sprung up that you didn’t plant in a land that has been sown into before you. It is a land that you didn’t know was even yours as an inheritance.”

As I read the first section of chapter 6 in Galatians, I sensed what the Lord was hinting at in His “NOW Word”. He was drawing emphasis to verse 9 and I have shared a few versions below to expand your understanding before I expound upon my revelation:

Galatians 6:9
(AMP) Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.”
(TPT) And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!”
(MSG) “So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit.”

When I began to really study the verse, I discovered some very key things to know and understand, to really get what the Lord said to me. I know that there are many who feel like they have been through the ringer, through the fire, through the storm; and for some, may even feel as if they have been battered and beaten in the process…perhaps, even too broken to recover. I’m going to break down this verse before I share a deeper word.

The verse in the Greek would read, “And [in] well doing not we should grow weary in time for due we will reap a harvest not giving up.” The phrase “we should grow weary” is derived from two words meaning “to be faint or weary, in heart.” They denote “losing heart, or being negatively influenced with the outcome of experiencing inner weariness.” 

One of the most important parts of this verse I believe, is the next phrase, “in time.” The word for this is “KAIROS”, meaning “fitting season, the right moment, favorable moment, opportune time, opportunity.” It comes from the word, “kara”, which means “head.” This is saying that things are “COMING TO A HEAD”, or to “take full advantage of.” 

The word “due” means “one’s own, property.” “We will reap a harvest” is referring to “receiving a reward for well-doing.” The word “not” is like an “if, then” conditional statement. The last part, “giving up” means “to let go, unloose, release.”

In this revelation of verse 9, I believe that in this hour God is saying, “Do not allow yourselves to become swayed by the circumstances surrounding you, nor identify with them. Do not allow heartsickness to cause you to relinquish what has been designated as your own inheritance, for NOW THINGS ARE COMING TO A HEAD! It is time to take full advantage of the favor of My face, the open doors set before you, of the season of outpouring I have ordained for you. DO NOT under any circumstance, let go of My promises, for they WILL always come to pass, bearing fruit. IF you do not turn away from Me, THEN I will pour out double the recompense for your troubles, double the blessing for your obedience and steadfastness, AND I will bless you beyond your wildest dreams. DO NOT MISS THIS MOMENT! SEIZE IT WITH ALL OF YOUR BEING!”

Beloved, NOW IS THE TIME to not let go! NOW IS THE TIME to take hold of what is AT HAND! DO NOT LET the enemy of your souls win and steal your destiny from you!!!

I read a post this morning on Facebook about the wondrous works of God when we do not give up; and I saw a comment from a woman that brought deep sorrow in my spirit for the body of Christ in the face of adversity. She said that ‘she just didn’t have it in her and couldn’t do it anymore, that she had been through too much to keep going.’ She had given up. The enemy has arisen in this hour to throw out every punch, jab, throw, and weapon in his desperate attempt to thwart the destinies of God over His Bride; and it infuriates me. It infuriates me that he has violated, assaulted, and silenced the children of God to the point of defeat.
Jesus said in Matthew 10:7-8, (TPT) And as you go, preach this message: ‘Heaven’s Kingdom realm IS ACCESSIBLE, CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH.’ You must CONTINUALLY bring healing to lepers and to those who are sick, and MAKE IT YOUR HABIT to BREAK OFF the demonic presence from people, and raise the dead back to life. FREELY YOU HAVE RECEIVED the power of the Kingdom, SO FREELY RELEASE it to others.” 

THIS is what we were made for! The only way that we don’t have Kingdom authority and power, Heaven’s backing, angelic assistance, and victory is if we set our focus on defeat and give it up. I feel the stern warning of the Father saying, “DO NOT relinquish this call! If you do, you become another destiny snuffed out by the enemy. This goes beyond you! If you give up, you have not only relinquished YOUR destiny, but you have aided in the enemy’s stake at the souls from your intended harvest, as well as others’. He doesn’t just win with taking you out, but he will not stop until he takes out your harvest! DO NOT QUIT!!!”

FATHER, MAY WE CHOOSE TO SET OUR FOCUS ON YOU, JESUS! The storms of this life amount to nothing when our eyes are fixed on You, the Author and the Finisher of our Faith! It is then that we will fulfill ALL that You have destined and created us for! It is then that we will see the world ignited with Burning Ones, set ablaze with the Undaunted Ones, and see the fullness of the reward of Your suffering returned to You, Jesus!

Hebrews 12:1-3 (SMG)
“Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means WE’D BETTER GET ON WITH IT. Strip down, start running—and NEVER QUIT! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS, Who both began and finished this race we’re in. STUDY HOW He did it. Because HE NEVER LOST SIGHT OF WHERE HE WAS HEADED—that exhilarating finish in and with God—He could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now He’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility He plowed through. THAT will shoot adrenaline into your souls!”

Now, I bring things full circle to the original Word of the Lord at the beginning of this post. When we truly grasp these truths above, that WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS and that WE DO POSSESS EVERYTHING WE NEED TO FULFILL OUR DESTINY AS WE SEEK HIM IN THE SECRET PLACE; we are able to gather in the harvest of our own labors, AND ALSO the harvest of souls born from the toils of the pioneers gone before you!

John 4:37-38
(MSG) “The Harvester isn’t waiting. He’s taking His pay, gathering in this grain that’s ripe for eternal life. Now the Sower is arm in arm with the Harvester, triumphant. That’s the truth of the saying, ‘This one sows, that one harvests.’ I sent you to harvest a field you never worked. Without lifting a finger, you have walked in on a field worked long and hard by others.”
(TPT) And this confirms the saying, ‘One sows the seed and another reaps the harvest.’ I have sent you out to harvest a field that you haven’t planted, where many others have labored long and hard before you. And now you are privileged to profit from their labors and reap the harvest.”

The Undaunted Ones

This afternoon I felt very strongly the winds of Holy Spirit blowing. While resting in His Presence and residing in prayer, I felt a pressing from the Lord to pray for all who have been facing demonic oppression and opposition as of late. I could feel for some that the enemy fire has been great and overwhelming, bringing chaos into minds and lives; for others I could sense the weighty presence of the enemy overshadowing those who are desperately focused on fulfilling their callings but the weight of opposition has become heavy and the strength to go on is waning.

I know that for our family personally, we have encountered varying degrees of these attacks since Jeremiah returned from Southeast Asia. I, myself, have been facing the heavy artillery of the enemy coming against my health and with random attacks over the last two months. Speaking from experience, I understand the feeling of being pressed on all sides as Paul speaks about in 2 Corinthians 4:8-10 (TPT),Though we experience every kind of pressure, we’re not crushed. At times we don’t know what to do, but quitting is not an option. 9We are persecuted by others, but God has not forsaken us. We may be knocked down, but not out. 10We continually share in the death of Jesus in our own bodies so that the resurrection life of Jesus will be revealed through our humanity.”

Even still, QUITTING MUST NOT BE AN OPTION if we are to fulfill our destinies. For those bearing this struggle I want to encourage you with verses 13-15 (NLT), But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, ‘I believed in God, so I spoke.’ 14 We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus, will also raise us with Jesus and present us to Himself together with you. 15 All of this is for your benefit. And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory.”

In this time with the Lord, He began to speak a strong, yet relevant word for this time and season that is pertinent and very important if we are to overcome the enemy and walk out and into all that He has ordained for us, fruitfully:

There has been a release of mining spirits from the enemy. These spirits seek to dig deep into the dwelling of My children – the place designated for Me and My promises. Their goal is to uproot and extract all that is reserved for My Kingdom; and then to leave a void in which no wealth remains. Once this takes place, their goal is to detonate explosives in the form of demonic attacks such as debilitating illnesses, distractions, accusations set to destroy one’s character and rapport, spreading lies to cause division, placing word curses, and to come against any aspect of truth.
All of this with hopes of leading to aborted destinies and callings, depression, anxiety, and loss of life. The spirit of witchcraft, python, division, fear, unbelief, anger, doubt, infirmity, and death all fall into this category. The oppression has amped up against My children as of late because the enemy is threatened by what lies ahead. Because of this, all of hell has upped their game and are taking full advantage of this season of celebration of devil worship through halloween, day of the dead, etc.
There is a gateway of access given over fully and even joyfully to all that is evil in this season. There has been an exchange specifically in the kingdom realm over these things. Yet in all of this, I am sovereign over it all.
If only my people would pray. If only they would rise up and take up their authority over the enemy, close the gateway to hell and it’s minions – this takes place through their declarations and prayers and refusal to submit to what plagues them. Rise up and bind what has been opposing you, restricting you, constricting you, and squashing you. The opposition you see is against the ascent, against the destiny and your calling’s fulfillment.
Pray for strength to stand when the foreboding presence is heavy, the warfare – intense, the opposition thick. Shut any doors that may remain open to what opposes Me, and get low, seek My face, and receive all that you need. DO NOT give up, give in, or give way!!! DO NOT abort that which I have placed within you!
Stop pouring your praise and honor into that which serves hell – stop celebrating hell! Stop serving hell about your actions! Put an end to your word curses, all unwholesome talk, unbelief, lustful and murderous thoughts, Christian witchcraft, yes, even rebellion; your selfishness, and idol worship! There is no place in My Kingdom for things such as these.
Pursue righteousness. Against these things, righteousness will trump and conquer! As you walk into and in righteousness, your light will shine forth like the dawn, and the nations will come to your light! Upon the horizon, you will gaze forth and see that which I have promised and placed within you stretched out and made manifest before you!
The Son’s rays will illuminate their brilliance and cast resurrection and salvation light up on all that is fruit destined to your name. All of this IF you do not to give up or quit. All of this is contingent upon what you choose to do. So I say to you – choose to overcome!

Revelation 21:5-8 (NLT) “And the One sitting on the throne said, ‘Look, I am making everything new!’ And then He said to me, ‘Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.’ And He also said, ‘It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be My children. But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.’”

We overcome the enemy through our praise and victory song to God in the fires of adversity. We defeat every spirit opposing the destiny of God through our decrees and declarations. This victory not only breaks the chains and bindings upon us but sets up breakthrough for those around us. I urge you to read Acts 16:16-34 and be encouraged to persevere as you see how Paul and Silas faced opposition and their praise broke through adversity unto freedom and salvation for not only themselves, but also for the masses.

If you have been facing these things, know that the warfare is not too powerful to destroy you. The attacks are not too great to squash your dreams and destiny. Take up your sword, even if you be beaten and worn, and rise above, ascend above the snake line, and destroy the works of the enemy through your prayer, declaration, and praise! You shall not be restricted, constricted, or restrained anymore in Jesus’ name!!! Gird up your loins, remain steadfast and undaunted, and run the race set before you unto completion and full fruition!!!

To Ascend is to Offend

This morning, my husband and I were discussing a post a well-known prophet had made recently about the opposition he has been facing with his prophecies being blocked on social media as well as pages being made by ill-intentioned people defaming him, calling him a false prophet, and tearing down his family and ministry. I know by observing the fruit of this prophet’s life as well as receiving similar words from the Lord that he is the real deal. I shared about my thoughts when I saw that post, the real reason why people resort to these destructive, misleading, underhanded tactics.

When a true fiery, bold, faith-filled, undignified man or woman of God steps into all that the Lord has destined for them, all the demons in hell tremble; for their impending doom is at hand. We see this again and again throughout the Bible just before demons are expelled and people are set free. I have never forgotten a word shared by YWAMer, Amy Sollars, “The dogs of doom stand at the door of destiny.”

The enemy would like nothing more than to keep this bold lover from stepping into their destiny; but when the enemy fails to do so, he resorts to defamation in order to cause mistrust. This leads to mistrust of the word of the Lord, which has the potential to not only harm the target but also anyone following their ministry.

The enemy will always try to cause an explosion filled with shrapnel to cause a high casualty rate. We have seen this recently through the attack against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The demonic resistance to the will of God has exploded to such a high proportions that thousands from all over the world practicing in pagan witchcraft have come together planning a public hex tomorrow against not only Kavanaugh, but many others. There is truly a war at hand folks, and we mustn’t treat any of it lightly. Souls are at stake.

Unfortunately those new to the faith, unlearned in the Word and voice of the Lord, and even unbelievers become the victims, of which many fall away and never return to the church. Contrary to popular belief, these attacks are not focused on the man or woman of God walking in obedience. The ultimate goal of the enemy has always been to cause God’s creation to doubt His character. If he is given authority to do so, he can lead God’s people astray. This very thing took place in the Garden. He never had a right to govern the earth, so he deceptively caused those endued with said authority, Adam and Eve, to doubt God’s character. When they fell, they exchanged their crown and dominion over to satan and received punishment and separation from God.

This was never God’s original design. That is why He sent Jesus.

When Jesus died on the cross weighted with the horrific, disgusting, unholy, and eternally damning sins of all of His creation, He burst through the gates of hell and the grave, ripped the keys out of the hands of the condemned one, and rose to life again, victorious; shattering the wall of separation between us and The One True God, The Mighty One of Israel.

While mulling this over with Jeremiah, I told him that I thought it would be a good thing in some ways to be like this prophet and so many others receiving such opposition. My reason for this being: if you are being opposed so greatly, you must be doing something right, or the enemy would never feel threatened or have a reason to stop you from ascending. 

In stating this, my heart’s cry and a prophetic utterance came forth from me saying, “I want to Ascend! The higher you Ascend, the more you’re gonna offend!”

This is true in every fashion. Jesus had offended, angry, murderous mobs, and defaming liars following Him everywhere grasping for an opportunity to silence Him. Ultimately, these liars are the ones who cast Him forth in an unjust execution, crying, “Crucify Him!”

In the physical when ascending a high place, there is an unseen line at a specific elevation called a “snake line” in which no snake is able to surpass or survive in. In the pioneering days, settlers would seek high ground; though it be less fertile soil for crops than the lush valleys, they saw the necessity for the safety and security of the high place. Though the terrain require greater strength to trek and cultivate, it was worth the sacrifice. Above the snake line is pure air and water. Purity, untainted by the sins of the low places. People residing above the snake line were healthier in every way.

Ascending is not for the faint of heart, the weighted down baggage carriers, the complacent, those stained with sin, the unforgiving, the unbelievers. These will not survive the journey in ascension. 

This is evident with the Lord when you look through Exodus 19 and 24. Moses was the only one allowed to ascend the mountain of the Lord, and God instructed him to place a boundary line that no one unholy was allowed to cross at the base of the mountain. Moses alone made the trek back and forth to convene with God on the mountaintop, and then descend to deliver His message to the Israelites. Eventually, God told him to bring Aaron up, for Aaron had consecrated himself and proven himself worthy.
Chapter 24 begins with God instructing Moses to bring Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and Israel’s seventy elders up. Through this time, the Israelites have seen the Glory of God descend upon the peak where their leader ascended.

Fear of the Lord struck those willing and hungry enough for His manifest Presence and they put off their garbage, cleansed and consecrated themselves to be prepared to ascend. In the ascent, they saw God and dined with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! 

9“Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel climbed up the mountain.  10 There they saw the God of Israel… 
11 And though these nobles of Israel gazed upon God, He did not destroy them. In fact, they ate a covenant meal, eating and drinking in His presence! 12 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me on the mountain. Stay there, and I will give you the tablets of stone on which I have inscribed the instructions and commands so you can teach the people.” 13 So Moses and his assistant Joshua set out, and Moses climbed up the mountain of God.
15 Then Moses climbed up the mountain, and the cloud covered it. 16 And the glory of the Lord settled down on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days. On the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from inside the cloud. 17 To the Israelites at the foot of the mountain, the glory of the Lord appeared at the summit like a consuming fire. 18 Then Moses disappeared into the cloud as he climbed higher up the mountain. He remained on the mountain forty days and forty nights.”

It’s time to GO UP! It’s time to GO UP into the Glory Zone!

It’s time to strip off all of the weights, strongholds, secret sins, unforgiveness, offenses, and depravity in our hearts to GO UP, to ASCEND! You cannot take these snares with you and if you choose to keep them and remain in them, you very well may find yourself in the valley of constriction as the python spirit chokes the life out of you. 

The fire may strike fear in you at the base of the mountain, but which fire would you choose to pass through? The Refiner’s Fire, the Fire of Holiness and into the manifest Presence and Glory of God on the mountaintop; or the fire of eternal separation from the One Who sought you and called you higher? Will you ascend higher and higher as Moses did and abide there in His glorious Presence; or will you remain outside the wall, outside your tent because what you see now seems so much better?

I assure you beloved, to ascend is to see His face and not perish. However, only dead men may see His face. We must first die to sin and our flesh before we ascend into the Holy of Holies. It is then and only then, that we may find ourselves in the wrap around Presence of The Holy God!

The NOW Harvest: Part 1

Two mornings ago in my 5 a.m. groggy state, I felt a stirring in my spirit of what was on the Lord’s heart that morning. As I sleepily tried to focus and clutched my authentic Indian Masala Chai (of which we adore and keep readily on hand because it reminds us of ‘home’) for joy and warmth from this sudden and brisk change in weather, I turned to John 4 that we were reading from while discipling a friend the evening before. I had that night realized something that I had never knowingly noticed before. I will be sharing about this in a two part word of which the second half should be up soon, so be on the look out for it! Now, on to the meat!

The first half of John 4 is telling the account of Jesus’ interaction with the Samaritan woman at the well. Just as Jesus revealed to the Samaritan woman that He was the Messiah that the world had been searching for, His disciples returned to Him with lunch. Instead of being intrigued and interested in what was taking place in that very moment, they were distracted and possibly even offended to find Him not only conversing with a woman, which was culturally unacceptable in those times; but more so with a woman who was not a Jew.

After the woman ran off to town to tell everyone about Who she had just encountered, the disciples urged Jesus to eat the lunch that they had brought. Jesus’ response is, 34My food (‘nourishment’ in NLT) is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to completely finish His work. 35Do you not say, ‘It is still four months until the harvest comes?’ Look, I say to you, raise your eyes and look at the fields and see, they are white for harvest.” The first thing I want to point out is what Jesus said in verse 34. Jesus and His disciples had been traveling for quite some time leading up to this and when He stopped at Jacob’s well, it says that He was weary from the walk. It only makes sense that after a strenuous, exhausting activity that one should drink and eat to regain strength for the journey. Instead, Jesus responded that His nourishment comes from Heaven, doing the will of the One Who sent Him and completing His work in the earth.

My question for you is, do you like to fast? I never enjoyed it and it definitely felt like dying to self; for I realized how much I enjoy chocolate and meat. Jesus told me about five months ago to begin intentionally and frequently fasting if I truly desired to see many things I had been seeking Him in prayer about as well as for global revival to come to full fruition. I will be honest and tell you, I was disobedient up until Jeremiah went to Southeast Asia two months ago. I was caught up in the ‘now’ nourishment and sustenance. I am so grateful that He is such a gracious and patient Papa and sees where we are and will also come to meet us there and call us upward.

Before Jeremiah left, He gently reminded me of His last call and with a great desire and hunger for Him and His will in Asia, I fasted for the duration of Jeremiah’s leave and forsook my ‘good’ chores to sit at His feet. Let me tell you, in my ‘dying to self’, I came alive in the manifest Spirit of God and encountered more of Jesus and heavenly activity than in the culmination of my walk with the Lord. I will not be fake and pretend that since then I do not struggle in my days of consistent fasting, nor do presume to make it perfectly through every day without fail, whether intentional or not. I do recognize there was a special grace upon those first weeks; but fasting is warfare. I will, however, say that I have found a realm far beyond any earthly substance that would sustain. I now understand what Jesus meant when He said what He did. 

Recently, I have noticed the purity of my son, Azariah’s bold faith in increasing levels. It has been his practice for about a year and half of praying himself before bed after we do. Over time, his prayers have become interesting, precious, spirit-led, and awakening as we have seen him grow and his love for Jesus increase. Since Jeremiah returned from Southeast Asia in which they saw 4,612 souls reaped in Jesus’ name into the Kingdom of Heaven, we have faced varying levels of attack and warfare. It is no mystery to us for we know the enemy is angry and threatened at our obedience in seeking His face and doing His will. We do not question where these trials originate, for we stirred up and ransacked hell in warfare over every one of those souls.

Two weeks ago, I had to take Elam, our 19 month old to get 5 stitches on his nose after a freak accident and I was emotionally worn. The enemy took the next day to hit me at every turn, including enduring a freak accident and injury myself. That night while experiencing a unwarranted attack of vertigo while praying with Azariah in bed, I encountered the love of the Father through my three year old and gained much understanding in His ways.

Azariah’s nightly questions before bed are, “How was your good day today?” and “What was your favorite part?” Truthfully, I responded, “Mommy did not have a good day today, baby; nor do I have a favorite part.” I began to explain why, including Elam’s accident the night before. He responded, “I’m sorry, Mommy. I’m so sorry.” I asked why. He stated, “I should’ve prayed for you when the cheerios spilled.” (Right after my own accident, in pain, I got the boys a snack to try and distract them as I cleaned it up. As I handed Elam his cup, the container of cheerios crashed in a massively dispersed mess on the kitchen floor. Azariah ran in upset thinking he wouldn’t get a snack now…never fear, there’s another box.)

Shocked at his statement in bed, I told him it wasn’t his fault. He said again that he should’ve prayed for me because I was hurt and having a hard day. He then proceeded to hold me, rub my back, and pray the most powerful and precious prayer over me. As I wept an ugly cry, the love of God entered this bubble and invaded every place of pain, brokenness, anxiety, and fear; completely uprooting and replacing them with His love. It was then as I reflected what we are really fighting for, what we are really fasting for…a whole other dimension. This was the nourishment that I desperately needed. Each of these things are not to be done out of selfishness, but out of a whole-hearted, genuine desire to see the totality of His Kingdom invade the earth; and to see the coming generations operating in the fullness of the Spirit and power, from the youngest of age. These things can only be done by first doing it yourself, then setting an example for those coming after you to follow. THIS is true discipleship. THIS will change the world. The battle and the sacrifice is worth it.

(NLT) 35“But I say, WAKE UP and look around. The fields are ALREADY ripe for harvest.” (emphasis added)  The harvest is truly RIPE all around us, if we will only WAKE UP and look at what is right in front of us. The hearts of our children are ripe. If we do it right, if we will seek His face and ascend the hill of the Lord, our children will see where we are going and the why behind it; and they will develop the desire to follow right behind, for the prize of Jesus here on earth will be the why behind their ‘yes!”

Soon, I will share the “The NOW Harvest: Part 2” with the rest of the revelation from John 4 as well as the Word the Lord spoke to me that morning while resting in His wonderful Presence.

I leave you with these final reflections:
What are you willing to give up in your ascent to the mountain of the Lord?
All of the baggage can sure weigh you down and prevent you from receiving the full nourishment needed to complete the will of the Lord for your life and in the earth. I implore you to be seeking out ways to be intentional in sitting at His feet in ever-increasing heights, receiving your replenishment, furthering the Gospel and discipling those around you, especially the children in your life!

Prophecy: Dawn of the Sent Ones

Photo: Unknown

While praying last night to the Lord, I heard very clearly His voice saying,

“THE DAWN OF THE SENT ONES IS UPON US! The time has come for My Sent Ones to be unleashed! For a time you have been in the wilderness of preparation, and NOW IS THE TIME OF THRUSTING, of EKBALLO!

What the enemy intended to be a derailment of purpose and destiny, I have turned around for double recompense. Where the enemy sought to destroy, I have commanded victory for My children and the enemy will suffer double the defeat. What was once going to be a difficult road to plow, resulting in much toiling and labor, has become a LANDSCAPE OF HARVEST! Yes, gaze ahead and see the fields that are RIPE FOR HARVEST!!!

In the wilderness of preparation, I have been stripping off every weight and hidden snare that the enemy would have chosen to try and trip you up and to bind you on your path. I brought you into a place of deep hiding, where it seemed as if the world as you knew it was turned upside down; where it seemed as if every door that was once wide open to you in ministry, relationships, finances, favor, were being slammed shut in your face. I have heard the cries of My children, crying out from a place of deep desperation. Each and every tear shed in this season has not fallen to the ground unnoticed or forgotten. I have caught every single one and hold them dear to My heart.

Where the enemy took the opportunity to whisper in your ear during this quiet season that your destiny has been lost, forgotten, and forsaken, I have been there close beside you in every moment, echoing into the halls of your eternity: DO NOT GIVE UP! DO NOT GIVE IN! YOU’RE ALMOST THERE! THE TIME TO PUSH IS NOW! YOUR BIRTHING IS HERE! YOUR DAWN OF RELEASE IS UPON YOU! You’re in the threshold of the ring of Fire, of transition; and if you will HOLD STEADFAST AND KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME, you will burst through the doorways of destiny with monumental force and breakthrough, making quite an entrance! Now is not the time to decide to abort the baby- now is not the time to give up or grow weary in the mission and purpose! It’s coming whether you like it or not; the only way you could abort your destiny is IF YOU CHOOSE to give up! Only then will it fall to the ground. If you give up, you will not only miss out on the INCREDIBLE BLESSINGS, FRUIT, THRILL, and JOY OF THE FULFILLMENT, but someone else will have to come along and pick it up to carry it to completion and reap the benefits of their YES.

Again, I say to you, THE DAWN IS UPON YOU! Do you not see the rays of sunlight rising upon the horizon? Gaze forth and be amazed at the beauty of it! To those with eyes to see, you will gaze out in not the distance, but the nearness of the uniquely designed destiny painted before you. Receive the blessings of obedience that are always greater than the sacrifices made. OH, THE JOY THAT IS HERE NOW!

Step up, and step out into all that I have released upon the wings of the wind. Fly with Me in a higher dimension, soaring high above it all! You will see from an aerial view, all that has been laid before you. Yes, you will see not in part, but in full vision and will be able to carry the vision to the greatest completion!”

Joel‬ ‭2:2‬ ‭(NLT‬‬)
It is a day of darkness and gloom, a day of thick clouds and deep blackness. Suddenly, like dawn spreading across the mountains, a great and mighty army appears. Nothing like it has been seen before or will ever be seen again.
‭‭
Isaiah‬ ‭60:1-3‬ ‭(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.

Galatians‬ ‭6:9‬ ‭(TPT)‬‬
And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!

Galatians‬ ‭6:9-10‬ (‭MSG‬‬)
So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.

Into the Wilderness We Go! 

While in my prayer and soaking time two afternoons ago, I had been praying about some deep revelation and knowledge given to me that morning. If any of you have heard of or kept up with the story of Jeremiah Thomas, the 16 year-old fiery warrior diagnosed with terminal cancer set on seeing abortion’s death in America, you will see a story calling every believer in the Body of Christ to rise up and take the baton that fell to the ground on August 26, 2018 with his passing into Glory.

I have been deeply moved by this story and fight and it only stirs me up even more to storm the gates of hell and FIGHT FOR LIFE until I see the complete end of abortion not only in my land but across every nation. A fight like this will cost something, as a matter of fact, it will cost everything to go face to face against the enemy’s sole goal in the earth, to kill, steal, and utterly annihilate. This is my mandate. This is one part of the scroll of my life given to me in the most vivid heavenly encounter I have ever had in my life, in which I was taken up into Heaven the Sunday before Mother’s Day of this year…to give my life in the fight for His Little Ones. Perhaps one day I will share of this divine life-altering experience when I am finally able to pen it concisely and find the correct words to accurately describe all that took place.

I had discovered two mornings ago that Jeremiah’s father, Rusty Thomas had made a post on Facebook that he along with ten other pro-life activists were preparing to go to federal court today to face charges for interposition at the only remaining abortion clinic in the state of Kentucky on Mother’s Day last year. I encourage you to check out the link above and let it be a charge to you that there is a cost when we choose LIFE and when we choose to give our lives to save the lives of the most marginalized, voiceless, and helpless people. I believe that it is no coincidence that they are facing charges like this at the same time that Supreme Court Justice nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is under his own scrutiny and battle. The enemy is hard-pressed in opposition of those who oppose his eternal purpose. We must pray that every God-ordained purpose is resilient and holds steadfast, to be found victorious!

While studying this, I was lit on fire in my research about Kentucky and the things I read as the state progresses towards being abortion-free. They, along with six other states are one abortion mill away from banning clinical abortion. In prayer over this, I received a powerful vision of the doors of the E.M.W. Women’s Clinic, the sole abortion mill in the state, with an eviction notice on their doors. I then saw the hands of Jesus slap a huge yellow sticker across the doors that said, “CLOSED PERMANENTLY.” It is then that I began to see a breakthrough take place and prior visions I have received about revival taking place in Kentucky reappeared and began to become a reality. It is then that the Lord gave me this Word concerning these matters and the REFORMATION that is to take place:

Prophetic Word for Kentucky- SEPTEMBER 5, 2018

“Getting back to the start, to the beginning, to the roots. From this place where I birthed the wave of outpouring into the nation, will I birth a new thing. Out of this place will come a dual wave of Righteousness and Justice embodied. Out of this place will I release a third wave new to the eyes and heart of man. Because of the exchange of selfishness for Righteousness, I will pour out a new vision.
No longer will the spilled blood of My Little Ones stain this soil! No longer will the shedding of innocent blood brood over you, Kentucky! For through you, I will set the standard for the whole of the nation to follow. Just as with the second great move of My Spirit that originated in the wilderness, purifying the disgusting debauchery from your soul, so will I do it again!
Your soil is Ripe for Harvest! I will make you a signpost along the Highway of Holiness, pointing out the way for those who come after you. Out of your heart will I birth a strategic blueprint for a restoration of the soul of Revival. Out of this place will a fire ignite in your church to arise and carry the weight of the influx that is coming.
Get ready Kentucky, for a baby boom is coming! Yes, the twins are being established in your womb! Not only will you see a baby boom in the natural- for all of the babies that would have been aborted are being given over to Salvation; Life will rage within your borders! Awakening and an enabling in the Body will arise to the spirit of Adoption. Babies will be saved and receive My family as their own. You will also experience a baby boom in the spiritual, for the wave of Righteousness will bring them in by the droves to your light!
I decree and declare that your buildings will not be large enough! Yes, back to the wilderness will you find yourself! Prepare your tents! Establish your tent pegs in the soil and let My Spirit breathe upon your laid down tents! Indeed, your Harvest is Ripe and Ready!

Brothers and sisters, I believe that we will not see sustained, wide-spread Revival in America until we see a dramatic transformation and reformation of mindset and lifestyle. No longer can we continue shedding innocent blood. The blood of 59 million innocent babies cries forth from the soil of our guilty nation, crying out for JUSTICE. God cannot bless a land that is spilling innocent blood for selfishness’ sake. It is against His nature, and the Word of God is clear on this matter…for the shedding of innocent blood, blood will be required.

I hear the voices of the masses crying out, “WHY?!” to the increase of disease, suicide, and death in this nation. It is deafening in my spirit. The answer is simple, my friends. Until we cease to offer our children as sacrifices on the altars of selfishness, we will continue to see a rise in these atrocities; for we have exchanged righteousness for selfishness. Blessings for curses. Life for death. The enemy has full authority to come against us, because we have made a transaction with him, just as Adam and Eve did in the Garden.

My Spirit is on fire for what the Lord is doing and I prophesy that we will see an end to abortion in the state of Kentucky and that we will see a strategic plan be put into place that will not only take care of the rise of adoptions within the Church, but that there will be those with financial influence that will step up and create organizations to fund and pay for adoption costs. I do not believe it will be totally free, for a decision of that magnitude, rescuing lives of the innocent, there will be a cost; but paying the cost displays the commitment.We have the perfect example set before us, for Jesus paid the highest cost to save us from death, and to bring us into His family through adoption. 

Galatians 4:5-7 (TPT)
“Yet all of this was so that He would redeem and set free all those held hostage to the written law so that we would receive our freedom and a full legal adoption as His children. And so that we would know for sure that we are His true children, God released the Spirit of Sonship into our hearts—moving us to cry out intimately, ‘My Father! You’re our true Father!’ Now we’re no longer living like slaves under the law, but we enjoy being God’s very own sons and daughters! And because we’re His, we can access everything our Father has—for we are heirs of God through Jesus, the Messiah!”

Ephesians 1:5-6 (TPT)
“For it was always in His perfect plan to adopt us as His delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that His tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify His grace—for the same love He has for His Beloved One, Jesus, He has for us. And this unfolding plan brings Him great pleasure!”

Ephesians 1:3-6 (MSG)
“How blessed is God! And what a blessing He is! He’s the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ, and takes us to the high places of blessing in Him. Long before He laid down earth’s foundations, He had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of His love, to be made whole and holy by His love. Long, long ago He decided to adopt us into His family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure He took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of His lavish gift-giving by the hand of His beloved Son.”

I leave you with two things: a powerful charge from Rusty Thomas at his son’s Homecoming Service below, and a charge of my own- what cost are you willing to pay for the lives of the innocent? What can you do to fight and take a stand for LIFE? Where can you put your time and energy that would further The Kingdom of God in this fight?
May your hearts be awakened, ignited, and empowered to RISE UP, FIGHT FOR LIFE, GIVE YOUR LIFE FOR HIS LITTLE ONES, and to STORM THE GATES OF HELL AND TAKE BACK WHAT THE ENEMY HAS STOLEN!!!

Proverbs 31:8-9 (NLT)
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; 
ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.”
