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!”

Heart to Obey 37/40

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

With only 5 days left of the fast, I am sure I am not the only one counting down until the end.  As much as I have loved going through The 40 together, I am ready to celebrate and enjoy good things once again, as I am sure we all are.  In the final days of this fast, there will be a shifting from talking about the importance of giving God glory in fasting, humility and repentance to glorifying Him in feasting, celebration, and obedience.

Today, I want to look at a place in scripture where the people were fasting out of a wrong heart but expecting good results. They were also feasting our of a wrong heart.  Everything was all about how it made themselves feel and not what God wanted.  Let’s examine the book of Zechariah:

Zechariah 7:2-3 when the people sent Sherezer… to ask the priests who were in the house of the Lord of hosts, and the prophets, saying, “Should I weep in the fifth month and fast as I have done for so many years?” 

The people in captivity are away from their homeland, but are still trying to cling to their heritage, history, and traditions. They sent this man to the priests to ask if they should continue their ritual of fasting as they always had.  This is the response they get from God:

Vs. 5-7 “Say to all the people of the land, and to the priests: ‘When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh months  during those seventy years, did you really fast for Me—for Me? When you eat and when you drink, do you not eat and drink for yourselves? Should you not have obeyed the words which the Lord proclaimed through the former prophets… ?’ 

God is not impressed with their act of fasting, because they are doing it for their own benefit. God is not getting the glory.  Even in their eating and drinking that God could be receiving some sort of thanksgiving, praise, or honor, it is all about themselves instead of Him.  Whether you are fasting or feasting, obedience to The Lord is what allows you to worship and glorify Him!  If your heart is right, you will be able to praise The Lord whether you are fasting or feasting.

Vs 8-10 ” Then the word of the Lord came to Zechariah, saying, “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Execute true justice, Show mercy and compassion Everyone to his brother. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, The alien or the poor. Let none of you plan evil in his heart Against his brother.’ 

The practical things God reveals to Zechariah for the people to do are not difficult, but neither are they easy for a people used to pleasing their own selves.  God must be the center, the main goal, and aim of our hearts if we are to truly worship Him in every area of our lives.  

Vs. 11-12 “But they refused to heed, shrugged their shoulders, and stopped their ears so that they could not hear. Yes, they made their hearts like flint, refusing to hear the law and the words which the Lord of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Thus great wrath came from the Lord of hosts.

The revelation of The Lord was streaming forth from the mouth of the prophet, but they would not obey, turned away, and would not even hear what God was calling out of them.  Selfish people with selfish hearts were unwilling to change and come into line with The God of grace and mercy.  This made their heart hard, and they had to suffer the consequences of their disobedience.

The 40 has been all about the softening of our hearts and the opening of our ears to hear. This becomes easier to do as we have a special time set apart to seek Him.  However, as we near the end of the fast, and will soon return to our normal way of life, what is to keep us from hardening our hearts and continuing to walk in our own ways?

Obedience! Obedience is key to daily walking in worship.  God is continually speaking forth His revelation, and we will continue to hear as we obey what we have been given. When we are disobedient to the Word of The Lord, our hearts will become hard.  The more we disobey, the more we will walk in our own way. God longs to pour out His mighty blessings upon us. He always has the best for us, but this is dependent upon our obedience to come into line with Him.  

My encouragement for us today is to seek The Lord for a new heart to walk in continuous obedience.  We will not always want to obey.  We will not always feel like obeying. In these times, we must truly believe that Jesus is worth our complete and total obedience. A heart of obedience will always lead us to worship and glorify our God and Father of grace, mercy, and love no matter what may be going on in us or around us.

Jesus, right now, when my heart is more receptive to you than ever, I want to be completely obedient to You, Your plans, and Your purposes.  I want to follow You and walk in Your way no matter what may be taking place in my life.  Whether it is something I want to hear or do, I want to totally obey all that You speak that You may receive all the praise, glory, and honor possible from my life. 

Practical –

  • Ask Holy Spirit to give you a willing and obedient heart
  • Glorify Him in your obedience today
  • Thank Him for all He has done, is doing, and will do

Be be blessed today with the ability and willingness to walk in obedience to all God is revealing. May you be released and propelled into the next level with Him as you obey to the best of your ability!

Revelation of Truth 27/40

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!

On this day, day 27, we have come to know we cannot walk alone especially in our outlandish commitments to The Lord.  It is by His grace and mercy and walking with a community of faith that we are able to accomplish everything He has for us.  I pray that you have a close community that will be praying and standing with you especially when the enemy comes in to distract, deceive, divide, and destroy.  Please know that this community is here to spur you on to greater love and greater works in The Kingdom. You are not alone!

Something happens when we fast that opens us up to receive in a way that nothing else can. We are caused to look past our own selfish desires and look to God for everything that we need.  We become little by little less self-sufficient and increasingly God-sufficient. He has everything that we need and gladly gives us it all as we seek Him.  It may not come in the time or way that we want, but God’s blessings are continually being poured out upon us, and it is easier to recognize this when we are fasting.  

We are going to focus on one of these blessings today that is the birthplace of repentance that leads to revival.  We have heard that often a revival of repentance precedes a spiritual revival, but how does a desire for repentance come?  The prophet Jeremiah lived in a time of great rebellion, disobedience, and stubborn hardness against The Lord.  Somehow, Judah thought that since they were God’s chosen people that He would bless whatever they did and be with them however they lived.  Jeremiah was sent to repeatedly warn them to turn from such thinking.  If they would turn from their sin and seek The Lord, He would forgive and truly bless them the way He desired.

This is the setting of today’s reading. Jeremiah is confined and cannot go out to the people. So he writes the words of The Lord and sends Baruch with the revelation of Truth:

Jeremiah 36:6-7 You go, therefore, and read from the scroll which you have written at my instruction, the words of the Lord, in the hearing of the people in the Lord ’s house on the day of fasting. And you shall also read them in the hearing of all Judah who come from their cities. It may be that they will present their supplication before the Lord, and everyone will turn from his evil way. For great is the anger and the fury that the Lord has pronounced against this people.” 

Even though the people of Judah are not living according to God’s standard or law, they have regular times of fasting where they would gather at the house of The Lord.  These religious acts did not do much because their hearts were wrong.  Because of this the full blessing of the Lord could not come upon them.  However, in the fasting, Jeremiah knows they are receptive to the revelation of Truth more than at any other time.  The purpose of the revelation of Truth is to bring the people to repentance.

Vs. 9-10 Now it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, in the ninth month, that they proclaimed a fast before the Lord to all the people in Jerusalem, and to all the people who came from the cities of Judah to Jerusalem. Then Baruch read from the book the words of Jeremiah in the house of the Lord, in the chamber of Gemariah the son of Shaphan the scribe, in the upper court at the entry of the New Gate of the Lord ’s house, in the hearing of all the people. 

All the people come together for the religious fasting and Baruch is obedient to do what he is commanded. All the people are gathered in religious fasting in their most holy place, and they receive the revelation of Truth.  The land had recently undergone a reformation and cleansing of the land under the reign of King Josiah, however, they are quick to turn their hearts away again.  They gather to fast, probably instituted by The previous king, but are devoid of understanding and obedience.  Next, we see some of the people and officials response to the revelation of Truth.

Vs. 16 Now it happened, when they had heard all the words, that they looked in fear from one to another, and said to Baruch, “We will surely tell the king of all these words.”

Conviction comes to the hearts of these leaders of the people in such a way that they know they must present this revelation to the king.  They are truly convicted by this revelation of Truth and bring it to the King.  It seems the king is convicted by these words as well, but his response is anger not repentance. He cuts up the scroll, burns it, and tries to have Jeremiah and Baruch killed.  Sadly, even after the revelation of truth brings conviction to some and the people are already gathered in fasting, repentance never comes and Judah goes into captivity not long after this.  

As we continue in fasting and prayer, God will bring continuous revelation of Truth as we seek Him.  However, we must be quick to repent in every area we are out of line and come to Him.  In this way, revelation of Truth leads to repentance, and repentance brings revival.  The revelation of Truth cannot bring revival on its own.  Our hearts proper response to this revelation will be repentance for our own actions, and the lifestyle of our people.  This proper response by us will lead to a change in the people around us, and then God can send a mighty revival to the land.  

My encouragement for today is to continue to set your heart to seek God.  As you do, be carefully listening for Him to bring the revelation of Truth, because it will come.  As these words come may your heart be soft and pliable to align even more fully with God’s great purpose and plan.  A right heart response to the revelation of Truth will be repentance that leads to revival.  Even though it may seem that this revival is only taking place within you at the moment, know this.  Revival within you will come out of you.  The people with revival continually flowing inside them are the ones that God uses to ignite revival in their families, regions, and nations. These are the ones that are propelled into the next level with Him.  This is who we are designed to be!

Jesus, here I am Your child. I come to You and ask for new revelation of The Truth. I know that You are The Truth, and I am asking for new revelations of You. As this revelation occurs, help me to be able and willing to align myself even more fully with You. Give me a heart of repentance for every area that is out of order, and bring me into a revival of relationship with You. Jesus, give me new revelation of who you are and draw me closer than ever before!

Practical –

  • Ask Holy Spirit for revelation of Truth
  • Ask Him to give you a soft and pliable heart
  • Walk in a heart of repentance
  • Align yourself to obey all He asks of you

Be blessed to receive continuous revelation of Truth. May you receive revelation that leads to repentance in the mind, body, and soul.  May this revelation lead from repentance to revival in you.  May this blessing transform who you are and flow out of you to bring transformation in your family, region, and land!

Spiritual Alignment 16/40

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!

Patience, persistence, and perseverance are words we like to avoid.  We have moved past the need for longsuffering to patience because that is a nicer way to say it.  However, longsuffering is a much more descriptive term to what is taking place.  Whatever you happen to call it, it takes work to continue in the faith of believing for your breakthrough into the next level.  I encourage you to look to Jesus from Whom comes your help.  May you be long-prospering even as you move past longsuffering.

Every single one of us are walking through this life.  No one is exempt from the troubles and hardships the world has to bring.  I would love to tell you that as you seek the Lord, you become perfect and can live somewhere in a bubble of perfect communion with God that will take you out of the world and make everything okay.  This is not the case.  In fact Jesus said:

John 17:15I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.”

At one time, the followers of Christ thought to create a separate culture like a monastery or convent that was set apart from the world, but Jesus never meant for this to happen.  You are meant to be His shining light in the middle of a dark world that many may see His light shining through you and be drawn to Him by your words and actions.  The way you respond in the same negative situations that others are going through should be a testimony to the greatness and glory of God in you. 

Sadly, we often do not handle the circumstances of life much different than the people in the world.  Because of our weak humanity, we fall into complaining, pain, despair, and even the depression and darkness that plagues the world.  This happens because our flesh and soul have not yet come into line with The Holy Spirit yet.  It is a process to ‘work out our salvation”  that we may truly become one with Him.

The heroes of the faith did not have it any easier than we do, and we even have recorded many of David’s passionate prayers and cries for help as he was going through terrifying life ordeals.  From him, we discover a key to bringing our flesh and soul into line with God’s plans and purposes even in the middle of the daily struggles.

Psalm 69:10 When they see me seeking for more of you with weeping and fasting,
they all just scoff and scorn at my passion.

Vs. 13 But I keep calling out to you, Yahweh! I know you will bend down to listen to me,
for now is the season of favor. Because of your faithful love for me, your answer to my prayer will be my sure salvation.

David reveals a secret into aligning our flesh and soul with Holy Spirit that many would pass over.  He is seeking more of God with passionate prayer and fasting.  Even when others would make fun of him for it, he is persistent.  He continues on.  David has so much confidence that God will come through to help in the situation, he does not care what others may say about his “pitiful cries for help”.  Prayer and fasting cause our soul to come into line with Holy Spirit in a way that nothing else can.  Fasting reveals our flesh and the prayer helps us give those things that arise over to God in the correct way.  These two together help us to truly become longsuffering.  A transformation begins to happen within us that creates the ability to weather the storms of this life and even be a witness in the most tragic circumstances.  This process continues as we continually seek Jesus and are changed by Him.

Jesus, I need you today.  My flesh and soul are constantly trying to pull me into world ways and earthly thinking, but I desire to be like you.  As I pray and fast, strip off the ways of the world and help me come into perfect alignment with You and Holy Spirit.  Even in the trials and tragedies of life, help me to shine brightly who You are because I run to you quickly for help in my time of need.  Give me the ability to be a true longsuffering light in the darkness!

Practical –

  • Ask Holy Spirit to help you see where He is working
  • Ask for strength and assurance that He is with you
  • Live your life with the perseverance He brings
  • Shine the glory of God in the dark situations

Be blessed today to see the glory of The Lord in the land of the living.  Even in the intense darkness, may you know He is with you and shine brightly His glory as you are propelled into the next level with Him.

Freedom & Breakthrough 10/40

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!

Congratulations, you have made it to double digits, and by the end of the day, you will be a quarter of the way through the fast.  For those who have elected to fast on only water, the experts say that today or tomorrow all hunger and weakness should be gone and the physical health benefits should begin to be readily seen over the next few days.

Whenever I am called to fast, I return over and over to Isaiah 58.  This is an amazing chapter that focuses on two things:

1. Fasting the proper way

2. The many personal benefits of fasting

Vs. 1-5 are speaking of a people who had regularly scheduled fasting times.  Set times each months, they would fast, supposedly to honor God, and expect to receive the heavenly blessing from these fast.  However God rebukes them because of their selfish and evil motives:

Isaiah 58:5 Do you think I’m impressed with that kind of fast?  Is it just a day to starve your bodies, make others think you’re humble, and lie down in sackcloth and ashes? Do you call that a fast?  Do you think I, Yahweh, will be pleased with that?

A proper fast is not for others to see, but for God to come in and purify our heart and our desires.  If we continue fasting to hear from God, but are not obedient to bring our other fleshly desires into control as He reveals them to us, our heart is wrong and we forfeit all the spiritual benefits that we would have received.  A change must take place and a humbling of our hearts where Holy Spirit is given the right to search out and place His finger on any area that is out of order.  When He highlights this area, we must say, “Yes sir, I give this to you right now.  Change me and make me new that I may never return to that old selfish, sinful way.”  As our hearts are set right and our focus is to allow Holy Spirit to renovate and restore our hearts and desires, we will reap the benefits of the fast that follow.

Vs. 6 begins this way ““Is this not the fast that I have chosen…“, and what follow are the many varied benefits of fasting with a right heart:

  • Loose the chains of wickedness
  • Undo heavy burdens
  • Set the oppressed free
  • Break every yoke
  • Share your bread with the hungry
  • Shelter the poor homeless
  • Clothe the poor naked
  • Recognize and provide for those around you in need
  • The light and favor of God will shine upon you
  • Healing will come forth quickly
  • Righteousness will lead you
  • Glory of God will follow you
  • The Lord will answer your cries
  • He will continually be your Guide
  • He will faithfully satisfy your soul
  • He will constantly strengthen your bones
  • You will be given the right to
    • Rebuild long-deserted ruins
    • Raise up foundations of generations
    • Repair the cities
    • Restore the communities

The list of benefits in these seven verses is almost overwhelming.  You could write books on each one of these topics and God’s amazing power to work through one whose heart is set to follow him in obedience, humility, prayer and fasting.  I encourage you as you continue to walk The 40, return to this passage over and over for encouragement when difficulties arise.  Confess and repent of anything revealed by Holy Spirit, and return to the place of right fasting with a right heart.

God has designed you for a plan and purpose.  You are called to be totally free and walk in Kingdom breakthrough in every area of your life.  Partnering with Holy Spirit in fasting and prayer with a true heart of humility and obedience will bring about freedom and breakthrough in a way that will quickly propel you into the next level with Him.

Jesus, I pray that you will help my heart to be continually set on you.  May my desires line up completely with You and Your word, and my actions continually be obedient to what You speak.  I want to lay down my life as a sacrifice that you may use me as an instrument of righteousness to build Your Kingdom however You see fit.  Help me to partner with you today in humility and obedience.

Practical –

  • Ask Holy Spirit to reveal any selfish or ungodly desires in your heart
  • Bring these before the Lord in confession, repentance and humility
  • Meditate on the benefits listed in Isaiah 58
  • Ask yourself, “What can God do through my life given to Him completely with a heart of humility and obedience?”

Be blessed today with walking in new levels of humility and obedience to every leading of Holy Spirit.  May this humility and obedience propel you in receiving all these benefits and more that you may advance into the next level with Him.

Watchmen: Time for the Un-trenching!

This weekend while in a service, I was dwelling on a word released by prophet Jeremiah Johnson, “The Year of the Watchmen”. He shared a word God had been speaking to him for 2019 out of Isaiah 56:9-12; he said, “God begins to rebuke the watchmen of Israel for their failure in fulfilling their assignment to the nation. I believe that in 2019, God has revealed to me that He is going to begin to deal with the watchmen (prophets, leaders and intercessors) who are failing their assignments in their various nations of the earth.”

Isaiah 56:9-12 (TPT)
“All you wild beasts, come and devour, you wild animals of the forest. Blind watchmen, all of them! They have no revelation knowledge; they’re like dumb dogs that don’t even bark — dreaming, sleeping, devoted to slumber. They’re greedy dogs that never eat enough. And the shepherds have no discernment; they follow their own desires. Every last one of them seeks his own profit. Each one says, ‘Let’s get wine and liquor and have a party! And tomorrow, more of the same, except even better!'”

He then shared the 10 Indictments that God has against His watchmen from this passage:

  1. The watchmen are blind.
  2. The watchmen know nothing.
  3. The watchmen are dumb dogs unable to bark.
  4. The watchmen are dreamers lying down.
  5. The watchmen love to slumber.
  6. The watchmen are greedy dogs.
  7. The watchmen are never satisfied.
  8. The watchmen are shepherds without understanding.
  9. The watchmen have turned to their own way.
  10. The watchmen enjoy unjust gain.

With what the Lord has been revealing to me regarding the events of this day and age and His deep longing for His sons and daughters to awaken to that for which they were created, I began digging deep within myself as a watchman asking the Lord to check me. Oh, Lord, let there be nothing in me that would provoke You to have any indictment against me!!! I then began praying for His watchmen when the preacher during the service I was in started to speak about 2 Chronicles 7:14. It is probably one of the most notably referenced verses in the Bible when things are tough. He shed a new light on the verse that I feel is so timely in the awakening that God is wanting to bring forth.

(AMP) “And if MY people, who are called by MY Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.” 

God does not say here, “if those sinners who know not of Me”, or “those who call themselves by My name will humble themselves, pray, and seek My face.” He says, “MY PEOPLE, who are CALLED BY MY NAME.” This in and of itself abolishes the false doctrine and deception instilled in much of the Body of Christ that it’s all the sinner’s fault what is happening to our nation. His demand is not an expectation that the world in sin would be the one to come to Him and petition Him to turn things around; it’s HIS PEOPLE! No, this does not absolve the world of their sins and responsibility to give an account to God for such things. However, it is the responsibility and expectation He has of His people to stand up against anything that opposes Him and to fall to their knees on behalf of their nation and people in Repentance. It is to hold their post and perform their God-given commission of warning the people of impending danger, sounding the alarm, and coming before the King of Kings, waging war on inaction.

I went to the altar praying and interceding for the watchmen in this hour to awaken and arise. I then heard Him say, “It’s time to come out of the trenches!”

I was then taken into a vision where I was lifted above the United States and was looking down upon it as if it were a map. I saw darkness begin to surround the country and a thick black line appeared to outline the United States and grow darker. When the entire nation was outlined, God began to show me the designated gateways and portals in the spirit realm all around the country; but they suddenly began to glow black as ink would bleed on a piece of paper when water is poured out upon it. Darkness started to infiltrate the gateways and overthrow them. God’s indictment against the watchmen holds true in this time and hour. They once stood at their command post guarding the gateways from and closing them to all demonic infiltration; and opening the portals completely to Heaven. Eventually these watchmen began to fall from their high posts because of the ten reasons in Isaiah 56; and the enemy saw an opportunity to take advantage of in an effort to gain the upper hand. 

Then He said, These watchmen have cast down their God-given keys of authority to open and shut, having given in to the forces of darkness seen at a distance. Their inaction gave way for darkness to invade through these portals. Demonic forces from all over the earth have seen the vulnerability of the nation and are flocking to America to take advantage of the abandoned and weak gateways. There is demonic congestion in many gateways from the amount of principalities trying to wedge themselves in through the narrow gates; so much so that many Heavenly/angelic forces are being caught behind this hindrance.

All of this is being allowed to go on as some gatekeepers sit at the doorway, heavily slumbering. The keys to shut the demonic realm lay unused and the keys to unlock the Heavenly realm remain forgotten. Many gatekeepers have grown weary of the warfare and upholding that which is right and pure. Many have been stationed at their posts for ages and have grown weary maintaining their post alone because they have failed to train up the successors to help carry the weight of the call. They have even failed to station guards along the wall. Some have also refused to partner with the next generation of gatekeepers because they are stuck on one method and anticipation of My movements; instead of realizing that the warfare tactics must change as what Holy Spirit is doing changes in this day. 

It is time to awaken and stop allowing indifference to lull the gatekeepers asleep! I say to you gatekeepers, ‘Do not be deceived for one moment to think that you are not responsible for what is taking place in your land! Your inaction has welcomed the realm of hell into your nation and invited in demonic forces from all across the earth to invade your borders. The shroud of darkness and congestion of evil shoving its way through your doors has blocked much of the Heavenly assistance that you so desperately need. Indeed, the Prince of Persia has blocked My way.

AWAKE AND ARISE to your posts and beckon Heaven to come to your aid! Take up your keys of authority in your hands again! DESERTION IS NOT AN OPTION! PASSIVITY IS NOT AN OPTION! INDIFFERENCE IS NOT AN OPTION! SLUMBERING IS NOT AN OPTION! Jonah failed at his attempt in all of these things. It’s TIME FOR THE RECOMMITTAL!  Cleanse yourselves of all unrighteousness, for I require pure and clean eyes. Yes, I require a Righteous Watchman to guard your walls so that every level of demonic activity attempting to come at you will be exposed from afar off!'”

Ezekiel 22:23-31 (AMP)
“And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, say to her: ‘You are a land that is not cleansed or rained on in the day of indignation.’ The conspiracy of her prophets in her midst is like a roaring lion tearing the prey; they have devoured people; they have taken treasure and precious things; they have made many widows in her midst. Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them. Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain.
Her prophets plastered them with untempered mortar, seeing false visions, and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord had not spoken. The people of the land have used oppressions, committed robbery, and mistreated the poor and needy; and they wrongfully oppress the stranger.
So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; BUT I FOUND NO ONE.
 Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads,” says the Lord God.”

Our land is overrun with evil on a grand scale; much like what we read in this passage from Ezekiel 22, especially if you read the entire chapter. Most incriminating, I believe is the flippant mass murder of our most vulnerable, His Little Ones. We must not leave God gazing out upon our soil and our churches only to find complacent, impotent, slumbering, indifferent deserters who have abandoned their God-ordained posts and destiny! We cannot leave Him saying that He found NO ONE! May a deep and great conviction come upon the hearts of His watchmen in this hour that would awaken all out of drunken, apathetic stupors; and to join together to awaken each other. 

Isaiah 22:22 (AMP)
“Then I will set on his shoulder the key of the house of David; when he opens no one will shut, when he shuts no one will open.”

Matthew 16:18-19 (TPT)
“I give you the name Peter, a stone. And this truth of who I am will be the bedrock foundation on which I will build My church—My legislative assembly, and the power of death will not be able to overpower it!
I will give you the keys of Heaven’s Kingdom realm to forbid on earth that which is forbidden in heaven, and to release on earth that which is released in heaven.

Isaiah 28:5-6 (TPT)
“In that day, Lord Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies, will be a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty for the remnant of His people. He will be a Spirit of Justice for judges to render right decisions. And He will be strength and bravery for those who turn back the battle at the gate.

Hebrews 10:38-39 (AMP)
“But My righteous one [the one justified by faith] shall live by faith [respecting man’s relationship to God and trusting Him]; and if he draws back [shrinking in fear], My soul has no delight in him. But our way is not that of those who shrink back to destruction, but [we are] of those who believe [relying on God through faith in Jesus Christ, the Messiah] and by this confident faith preserve the soul.

Beloved, it is going to take every watchman arising to their position of authority, keys in one hand, sword in the other; to combat and defend our land and people from the enemy’s plots. We can no longer sit back and expect someone else to do our job. It is the responsibility of His watchmen to guard and protect His house, defend the Gospel standing unwaveringly on the Truth of His Word, and guarding the holiness of His house as well as our own heart, mind, and body. The dormant coals need to be stoked into a raging flame again! It is our duty to guide His people along the correct path, speaking His Word at His direction. Finally, it is our greatest conviction to keep watch for our Master’s Return, inform the people, and to open the gates that He may come in. We do not draw back in fear that brings destruction, but press in and press forward to the full salvation, healing, and deliverance of the soul!  

Lastly, I leave you with a charge to be His undaunted watchman at all cost. I encourage you to pray out loud this word below in a bold declaration to God in faith and against the forces of hell; inserting your territory, people, inheritance, and land into the underlined word. May you fight until the very end for all that He has entrusted you with.

Be warned, I shall uphold my sacred oath to protect this realm as its gatekeeper. If your return threatens the safety of Asgard, my gate will remain shut…”

URGENT: Syria on the Brink

802697_2984722_3000x1688.jpg

On April 5, 2018, the Lord placed a spirit of travail upon me, opening my eyes to the reality of the horrors that have been taking place in the nation of Syria over the past seven years and that have continued taking place even present day. The sorrow and pain in His heart for His children was so heavy that I was unable to bear the weight of it. He spoke an urgent word then which I shared my the post, Intervention for Syria.

I have been closely watching the events taking place in Syria and praying the word of the Lord forth. Early this morning while in prayer, He burdened me with a deep urgency to pray unlike other urgings that I have felt prior to. In this place of urgency, He spoke a cataclysmic word of the dire need for watchmen to arise and stand upon the walls in intercession for the nation and future of Syria.

The Word of the Lord came unto me saying,

Oh, Syria, I will not leave you broken, for I will restore you. The enemy has sifted you and tried to cast your life into the fire instead of your dead, lifeless, and fruitless parts. I have seen the sheer atrocities set upon you and indeed, I am and have been utterly displeased! I am sickened by the evil in man’s heart. With every life lost to the hands of evil, the enemy truly brings a holy righteous anger boiling forth from Me. I hear many crying out, “when will it end?!”, as the cries for justice burst forth from the blood-stained ground.

An assassination plot will be carried out against your heartless ‘leader’ and he will be removed, yes, plucked from his seat of power. Just when he thinks that he has it made, has taken control of you and is seated in his lush high place, I will rip his throne right out from under him; just as I did with Haman. His pride and greed has set him up in high places and his world will soon come crumbling down in a burning heap of rubble! Every stronghold that he has laid up for himself in high places will come crashing down around him.

I will use this time to break in and bring relief from the death, destruction, and decay that has rampantly spread throughout your land for far too long. BUT, YOU MUST PRAY, oh, Syria! This window of opportunity will be brief; and the enemy is a blood-sucking leech.

The battle in the unseen over your life is greater than the war that has ravaged your land and slaughtered your children. There is a great war over your very existence and the enemy is dead-set on continuing his campaign of death until nothing remains but ashes. YOU MUST PRAY with the urgency of Mordecai burning in your hearts, that the spirit of Esther would arise in this window of time.

The enemy’s runner-up in this edict of death is far more evil at heart that his predecessor; for he would seek to claim this throne illegitimately. Yes, he has been training up in the spirit of divination in the secret place awaiting his chance to take over. Even this man has been placing curses on Assad to get his opponent out of the way. As evil as the demonic influence has been within Assad, how much deeper the seed of evil that is in the heart of this Hazael.

Where Assad would seek to gain control of every square inch of your land, no matter the cost; Hazael would seek only utter decimation. Where Assad destroys indiscriminately; Hazael would annihilate with intentionality all of your weak and vulnerable ones to completely destroy your bloodline and wipe your future from existence. YOU MUST PRAY for Michael, My fiercest warrior to intervene with victory in this window and DO NOT HESITATE OR DELAY, for the enemy of your souls stands at your doorsteps!

Brothers and sisters, we absolutely cannot stand idly by any longer and think that just because these atrocities are being carried out on the other side of the globe that it does not affect us. Every single thing that takes place in the earth has a direct effect on the physical and spiritual present and future of creation.

No longer can we stand idly by in our pathetic apathy as Christians when the future of our Syrian family is in the hands of the enemy! If you look up pictures and read up on the news from this nation or any other nation in the world going through conflict and you find yourself numb and true compassion doesn’t engulf you to the point of beseeching the Lord for intervention and warring in the spirit, then you have allowed yourself to become so numb to the heart of the Father. You have allowed yourself to become separated from the reality of His design for us. It is time to awaken out of our spiritual slumber and step up to the plate. The enemy wants to keep us under spiritual anesthesia so that we are uncaring and unaware of the havoc he is wreaking in the earth.

We were created to shift and flow with Him, to partner with Him in what He is doing in the earth and in the heavenly realm. “To do nothing out of self-preservation is to be dead already.” This word is for Syria, but it is also for the Global Family of God. It is a call to come out of spiritual disconnect and to awaken to the reality that the power of the Kingdom of Heaven is within us. When we pray, we are releasing a thunderous sound into the supernatural realm that shakes demonic dominions, uproots unbreakable fortresses of darkness, and destroys the influence of the enemy in the earth!
