Press In and Press Through Till There’s Breakthrough: A Call to Fast and Pray!

Early yesterday morning as I sat in prayer and to seek the Lord, He began to speak to me. For me, one of the biggest ways that He speaks to me is when I submit myself to His leading and His voice, by putting pen to paper. Yesterday was no different.

I felt such a strong pressing of this word and of it’s imperative timely status in the spirit. A kairos moment is upon us! I very much sensed that in the days leading up to Pentecost on June 9, that Father is bringing forth from Heaven a slim window of opportunity to the Body of Christ to see promises revealed transform into promises fulfilled. This has become increasingly apparent to me in the past few weeks and the urgency of the hour at hand is increasing as well.

This is what He said:

“NOW IS THE TIME in which the windows of Heaven are open and My blessings are being released in great proportion. NOW IS THE TIME in which My angelic messengers are carrying forth into the earth promises longed for, hoped for, prayed for, and warred for. There is an opened access door into the storehouses of Heaven to deliver that which was once blocked of release.

BEWARE of a slumbering presence that seeks to hinder the release and to stall the revealing! It seeks to blind and conceal with darkness, the revelation of divine release.

I tell you truly, IF you will commit to set your gaze, focus, and sights upon My Kingdom in this hour, THEN  I will bring into you that which has been promised. I will send warring angels on your behalf to bring deliverance and divine release.

DARE TO DREAM BIG WITH ME!

DO NOT LET slumber fall to your eyelids lest you remain blinded and fail to receive that which is coming on the clouds!

STAY AWAKE AND STAY UP WITH ME!!!

Circle your promises and keep circling them until I give the signal for every demonic delay to come toppling down; yes, crumbling down!!!”

Beloved, we MUST NOT allow this moment to pass us by! We must not be like those who in Jesus’ day, dwelt among THE ANSWER to every prophecy they had held onto for hundreds of years; and yet, they were completely blinded to the reality that their Savior stood right in front of them. Even His own disciples, His closest friends, doubted His resurrected existence as He stood among them.

It is time to strip off all unbelief, all doubt, all fear and complacency, every lie, and every deception that would blind us to His Presence and His activity in the earth at this moment and in the time to come!

I must share that something interesting occurred as I received this message from the Lord. The spirit of slumber attempted to overtake me. One could say, “Well, you had four hours of sleep! Of course that would happen!” I don’t disagree. However, this time was different. I was wide awake at 4:30 to seek Jesus and it was not until He began to release this word that I sensed the onslaught of this spirit. I discerned it’s presence and I warred for the Word, though my eyelids be heavy. To my husband, it probably would’ve been the gentlest of warring that he’s seen from me; not noticeable, even.

I believe something natural in the Kingdom of Heaven took place. Because I had submitted myself to Him to seek and receive, He fought for me. Because He saw my hunger and longing, He slayed the giants opposing me. I will say, most of, if not all of the word I received was written down with my eyes closed as I rested in He, Who fights my battles. He began to expose that which sought to hinder the release of the word was indeed, the ‘slumbering presence’ in which He spoke of.

As I dwelled on this word, He reminded me of a prophetic declaration and song that came forth from my lips two days ago, “Press in, and press through till there’s breakthrough!” 

He then led me back to the Gospel accounts I studied last week from Jesus’ encounter with His disciples, Peter, James, and John in the Garden of Gethsemane, just before He was betrayed by Judas and led to His crucifixion. I was wrecked last week of His interaction with His closest friends in their last moments together. He chose them to join Him in praying, for the hour was urgent to seek God.

Mark 14:33-35 says, “An intense feeling of great horror plunged His soul into deep sorrow and agony. And He said to them, ‘My heart is overwhelmed with anguish and crushed with grief. It feels as though I’m dying. STAY HERE AND KEEP WATCH WITH ME.’ He walked a short distance away, and being overcome with grief, He threw Himself facedown on the ground. He prayed that if it were possible, He would not have to experience this hour of suffering.Verse 37-38 says, Then He came back to His three disciples and found them all sound asleep. He awakened Peter and said to him, ‘Simon, are you asleep? Do you lack the strength to stay awake with Me for EVEN JUST AN HOURKeep alert and pray that you’ll be spared from this time of testing. For your spirit is eager enough, but your humanity is feeble.'”

They couldn’t stay awake for even ONE HOUR! Why?!?!?!?!

He did this three times, going off to pray in agony as though He were dying. Three times He returned to find His closest friends asleep. I believe He placed a test before them of their devotion to Him through any trial that may come. He chose them specifically to join Him in His secret place; however this time, they joined Him in what was probably the sole dark night of the soul in His life. I believe it was perhaps similar to Elijah’s test of Elisha in 2 Kings 2. Elisha prevailed in this test and not only saw His father taken into Heaven, but also received a double portion of Elijah’s mantle because he refused to depart from his father and was determined to receive what his Father had.

However, I do not believe the disciples passed Jesus’ test. They did not refuse to depart from Him in this moment where He obviously was like they had never seen Him be. They remained where they were and allowed Him to go on in solitude to cry out to God for relief from the cup He was to drink of. What if when He said, “STAY HERE AND KEEP WATCH WITH ME”, that it was actually a command to abide with Him and an invitation to join Him in His suffering? Luke 22:43-44 say that He called for an angel of glory to come and strengthen Him.” Would that have been necessary if they had joined Him?

Verses 39-42 state, “Then He left them a second time and went to pray the same thing. Afterward, He came back to the disciples and found them sound asleep, FOR THEY COULDN’T KEEP THEIR EYES OPEN AND THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO HIM. After praying for the third time, He returned to His disciples and awoke them again, saying, ‘Do you plan on sleeping and resting indefinitely? THAT’S ENOUGH SLEEP! THE END HAS COME AND THE HOUR HAS ARRIVED for the Son of Man to be handed over to the authority of sinful men. Get up and let’s go. DON’T YOU SEE? My betrayer draws near.'”

THEY COULDN’T KEEP THEIR EYES OPEN AND THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO HIM. 

What came upon them and overtook them so greatly that they literally COULD NOT keep their eyes open and keep watch with Him and had no answer for Him as to why? I believe that it was the same slumbering spirit that Father spoke of in the message He gave me. It seeks to blind in darkness, the vision and provision of Heaven. The word for “keep watch” and “see” literally means, “to see in the spirit”. Jesus was not telling them to watch with their natural eyes, but to keep watch and guard with their spirit eyes. If it is allowed to operate, then it will block what is being released from Heaven to earth.

I believe that in this hour, Jesus is calling His Bride to band together, stand together, and contend together through a season of intense and intentional prayer, fasting, and seeking. There are promises that have been pent up and blocked from release but His promise is that if we will seek Him in these ways, that He will send His angels to remove the barriers that the release may come.

I truly believe that we are in a brief Daniel 10 moment of time. Just as Daniel set his face to pray and fast for the release of revelation of the vision, WE TOO, MUST SEIZE THIS MOMENT WITH ACTION! I believe that just as with Daniel, if we do this, we will be met by the same glowing man to dispatch angels of deliverance. He is Jesus.

Per the urging of the Lord, I am calling a 40-day fast beginning tomorrow, May 1st until Pentecost Sunday, June 9th. I strongly urge you to join me! If you have been contending for miracles, healing, salvations, promises, deliverance; NOW IS THE TIME!!! Just as He met His faithful ones who remained through the release of Holy Spirit and fire on Pentecost, I believe that He is bringing forth the same in this hour!!!

The Send: Ask for the Nations!

On Wednesday of last week during my prayer time in preparation for The Send, I was led by Holy Spirit to begin praying out and prophesying Psalm 68.

Psalm 68:1 (TPT)
“God! Arise with awesome power, and every one of Your enemies will scatter in fear!”
V. 3-4 – “But let all Your godly lovers be glad! Yes, let them all rejoice in Your Presence and be carried away with gladness. Let them laugh and be radiant with joy! Let them sing their celebration-songs for the coming of the Cloud Rider Whose name is Yah!” 

I began to see in this passage what He has been showing me for some time as He rides among the clouds, among the wave that is coming. We as His Sent Ones have a reason to rejoice as He not only has gone before us, but He leads the charge, and also goes with us covering us as we GO!

THIS is what adoption looks like! Love was released at The Send. Andy and Holly Byrd and their children are such a pure and holy example of the adoptive heart of the Father.

The next few verses really got me and happen to be completely in line with what took place at The Send. We committed to take up at least one mission field to accomplish His commission in the earth and to see it set ablaze: Neighborhoods, High Schools, Universities, ending the orphan crisis and placing all orphans into homes through the Spirit of Adoption, and finally, the nations. None of this can be accomplished if we do not Carry His Love with us. We are the Harbingers of Hope going into all the earth to declare that LOVE IS ON THE WAY!!!

As you read these next passages, I strongly encourage you if you haven’t already, to read them slowly and really allow them to sink in until they mark you and become your reality unto commission and action marked with compassion.

V. 5-6 – To the fatherless He is a Father. To the widow He is a Champion Friend. To the lonely He makes them part of a family. To the prisoners He leads into prosperity until they sing for joy. This is our Holy God in His Holy Place! But for the rebels there is heartache and despair.”
V. 7-8 – “O Lord, it was You Who marched in front of Your people, leading them through the wasteland. The earth shook beneath Your feet; the Heavens filled with clouds before the Presence of the God of Sinai. The sacred mountain shook at the sight of the face of Israel’s God.”

These are the desires of His heart; to be a Father to the orphans, a Faithful Lover and Husband to the lonely and widows, a Restorer of families, a Liberator, Provider, and Joy-giver. The beautiful thing in all of this is that He has called us to partner with Him to establish these desires into reality and fruitfulness!

It was in the secret place of prophesying these things forth into existence that I got to verse 9 and 10. I began to see the manifestation of a small cluster of clouds swirling into a culmination of storm clouds as with Elijah in 1 Kings 18. Then a song came forth,

The winds are blowing, do you feel it now, do you feel it now?
The clouds are stirring, do you perceive it now, do you perceive it now?
The storm is rolling in, do you hear it now, do you hear it now?
The rains are here, can you feel it upon your skin now?

V. 9-10 – “You, O God, sent the reviving rain upon Your weary inheritance, showers of blessing to refresh it. So there Your people settled. And in Your kindness You provided the poor with abundance.”

I believe we saw this storm manifest at The Send. Within the first 10 minutes of being there, I found myself unable to stand under the weight of His Presence and the awareness of His nearness in that stadium left me trembling, crumpled in a ball on the turf crying out, “HOLY!” During that precious moment, I recognized something in my altered state of being present among thousands of Burning Ones and being wholly and solely in the Throneroom before my King. A single drop upon my head. That single drop resided with me the entire day. I knew the rains would come; and indeed, they did.

Sixty thousand lovers stood out in the ridiculous heat, and having spent the majority of the time on the turf (including being unable to replenish water sources for some time), we did indeed become a parched and weary people; yet all persisted unwaveringly before the Lamb Who is worthy! I truly believe the persistence bore fruit. There came a moment when we cried out to Him for the nations and gave Him our “YES!”, that we would GO! Following this marking moment came a transition that was obvious in the Spirit. We gave Him our adoration and as a blessing, He fulfilled His promise to send His reviving rains. In the physical as well as the spiritual, they felt to be strengthening and refreshing unto commissioning.

When He sends the rains of His Spirit and of outpouring, we must recognize it as a holy, marking moment and abide in it until The Sending. 

Back a few days before when I had been prophesying Psalm 68, I had no idea what He planned to do; and I am left reeling and in a perpetual state of awe and wonder. At the time of praying those words forth, the Lord led me to the page before in Psalm 67. I believe that this was the release after the rains!

Psalm 67 (TPT)
“God, keep us near Your mercy-fountain and bless us! And when You look down on us, may Your face beam with joy!”

V. 2-5 – “SEND US OUT ALL OVER THE WORLD SO THAT EVERYONE EVERYWHERE WILL DISCOVER YOUR WAYS AND KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND SEE YOUR POWER TO SAVE.
Let all the nations burst forth with praise; let everyone everywhere love and enjoy You!
Then how glad the nations will be when You are their King. They will sing, they will shout, for You give true justice to the people. Yes! You, Lord, are the Shepherd of the nations! 
No wonder the peoples praise You! Let all the people praise You more!”

V. 6-7 – THE HARVEST OF THE EARTH IS HERE! God, the very God we worship, keeps us satisfied at His banquet of blessings. And the blessings keep coming!
Then all the ends of the earth will give Him the honor He deserves and be in awe of Him!”

This is The Send. 

We believe that a wave was started that day and that it was only the beginning on the war on inaction. The rains of outpouring were only a glimpse in the coming world-wide Jesus movement. Today, we along with 18,000 others at The Send and world-wide have begun a 40-day Jesus Fast from March 1-April 9 to contend for Jesus, The Evangelist to sweep across the nations. I ask that you join us, for He is worthy of our sacrifice and our worship! The earth is awaiting this wave of fiery sons and daughters; they are awaiting Jesus, The Evangelist! You can go to the link above to sign up as a commitment, find out more information, tips, encouragements, and daily devotionals we will be going through across the globe.

It is promised us in Psalm 133, where there is unity, He commands a blessing! What we do in seizing this kairos moment will mark the futures of our children and shift the world in which they will live in. My prayer is that they enter a world that is on fire for Jesus in manifestation of Luke 12:49.

Please join us in praying these things forth and know that no nation is too dark for Jesus to reach! Set your face like flint in prayer, action, being His hands and feet; and do not relent until there’s breakthrough!!!

Psalm 2:7-9 (TPT)
“I will reveal the eternal purpose of God. For He has decreed over me, ‘You are My favored Son. And as your Father I have crowned you as My King Eternal. Today I became your Father. Ask Me to give you the nations and I will do it, and they shall become your legacy. Your domain will stretch to the ends of the earth. And you will shepherd them with unlimited authority, crushing their rebellion as an iron rod smashes jars of clay!'”

To the ends of the earth,

For Such A Time As This

About a week ago, I wrote two posts sharing what the Lord was saying about the newly released bill mandating abortion until birth in New York called, Salvation Through a Babe and What Will Reverse the Curse on America?. If you have not read them, you must. I believe you will find the answer to America’s crisis, prayer and intercession strategies, awakening for the Body of Christ, and practical action to combat the demonic principalities behind what we see in the natural.

God does not speak His Word and His heart for it upon fall to deaf ears; He wants all to hear the Truth and to respond accordingly. God is not silent about the happenings in the earth and among His people; He is revealing His heart to those who are humble and willing to seek Him in the secret place.

180124-holocaust-survivors-nazi-soldiers-01

One horror of the Holocaust. The number of murders from abortion far exceeds the number of people murdered during the Holocaust.

Roe v. Wade passed 46 years ago legalizing abortion in America and the consequences of it are nothing short of devastating. It is much like the decree of Haman that went out in all of Susa demanding the complete extermination of all Jews in the day of Esther; and like Hitler’s demand that Jews cease to exist with the Holocaust in more recent times. We see even in Biblical history that the enemy set out to destroy all infants and babies in an attempt to kill Moses, whom God would raise up to deliver Jews out of slavery in Egypt; and most importantly is the attempt at ending the life of our Savior, Jesus. King Herod, under the influence of satan, ordered the murder of all babies and toddlers in and around Bethlehem to prevent Jesus from growing to carry out His purpose of establishing His unending eternal government, saving all of mankind, and restoring what was broken when Adam and Eve fell in the garden. The events and people change, but the demonic principalities are still the same. No matter how bad it looks or gets, God still has the final Word and He always wins.

Esther 4:1-3 (NLT)
“When Mordecai learned about all that had been done, he tore his clothes, put on burlap and ashes, and went out into the city, crying with a loud and bitter wail. He went as far as the gate of the palace, for no one was allowed to enter the palace gate while wearing clothes of mourning. And as news of the king’s decree reached all the provinces, there was great mourning among the Jews. They fasted, wept, and wailed, and many people lay in burlap and ashes.”

Mordecai had received an edict issued by King Xerxes, influenced by evil Haman, decreeing the destruction, slaughter, and annihilation of all Jews 11 months from the date of its issue, Passover (ironically the same day Jews from all provinces came together to celebrate their liberation from slavery in Egypt unto freedom through Moses’ obedience.) Haman had an obsessive hatred of Mordecai and his Jewish lineage; and his hatred only deepened when Mordecai refused to bow down and worship him like the rest of the province was ordered to do. Feeling the desperate pressure of impending doom, Haman thought he would triumph over his enemy by wiping them out completely. From appearances this seemed to be a racial war unto genocide; however, it’s true source was spiritual battle of good v.s. evil; death v.s. life. This is the truth behind the abortion agenda.

Mordecai’s response is one that we as the Bride of Christ should have when laws are proposed or passed declaring the destruction, slaughter, and annihilation of God’s innocent, His Little Ones. His mourning and deep anguish was not hidden or pressed down to save face; it got ugly and was not a pleasant sight. He could have hidden in his home and wept in loneliness, yet he took his despair right to the king’s gate and made his undignified response known.

 

I must ask a self-analyzing question: When receiving news of the latest appalling laws disregarding the sanctity of life for His babies, have you ugly cried before the Lord and man and allowed even a glimpse of the anguish of God’s heart to touch you and move you unto action? Have you made your voice known in opposition and truth? If not, I strongly encourage you to go before the Lord and ask Him to search your heart for anything out of order that may have hardened your heart, that may have transformed empathy into apathy. 

We see the Jews fasted, wept, and wailed in mourning. They did not need to be told to do any of these things. It became a natural response, recognizing their dire need of a Savior to step in. That morning coffee or lunch at a restaurant no longer took precedence over seeking His face like never before. They got back to God’s Word in Isaiah 58. (I must interject the narrative and also state that the Jews had been exiled long enough at this point that they had become assimilated into the Persian culture to the extent that most people no longer knew Jew from Gentile. Their very own queen was evidence of that. It was a secret of divine appointment that God would place a Jew as queen over a Gentile nation.)

V. 4 (AMP)- “When Esther’s maids and her eunuchs came and told her [what had happened], the queen was seized by great fear. She sent garments to clothe Mordecai so that he would remove his sackcloth, but he did not accept them.”

Esther was deeply distressed, seized by great fear (fear of man) in just hearing of her cousin’s behavior. She sent him clothes to put on to cover the distress he, himself, was displaying before the world. I will be bold enough to propose that Esther’s response is a reflection of much of the Bride of Christ today. She spent her days within the confines of the walls of her governance (to us, the church), oblivious to the reality of judgement and doom taking place all around her. When hearing of the voice, her blood-relative, wailing in the streets, she intended to silence his voice to keep appearances up and put on a false perception that things were not falling apart. Perhaps much of The Church today is like Esther, failing to fulfill the totality of our God-given governance in The Kingdom of God to overthrow the kingdom of darkness. Perhaps we have wasted too much time catering to comforting the world, coddling our own comforts of idolatry and perfecting passivity.

In verses 5-12, Esther’s response to Mordecai when he sent word to her of the edict, demanding that she go to the king and plead for the salvation and deliverance of her people was one of excuse motivated by fear. She believed that silence was more profitable for her own salvation. I propose that she had become so isolated within herself and from the king that she began to believe the lie of the enemy that she had no voice; that her petitions would fall to the ground as would her head.

MattLockettPrayerSupremeCourt-SocialCrop-700x369

Beloved, DO NOT fall into this deception! YOUR VOICE COUNTS!!! BE MOTIVATED BY THE FEAR OF THE LORD, NOT THE FEAR OF THE ENEMY AND MAN!!! It’s time to throw out excuses!!!

V. 13-14 (MSG)- “When Hathach told Mordecai what Esther had said, Mordecai sent her this message: ‘Don’t think that just because you live in the king’s house you’re the one Jew who will get out of this alive. If you persist in staying silent at a time like this [since you did not help when you had the chance (AMP)], help and deliverance will arrive for the Jews from someplace else; but you and your family will be wiped out. Who knows? Maybe you were made queen for just such a time as this.’”

I have heard the argument a number of times that someone living a holy life in this land is separated from the repercussions of the blood-stained soil of this land, from the judgement coming. Mordecai addressed this head on with Esther. She was deceived into thinking that just because she dwelled within the king’s home and was ‘his bride’ that she would be exempt from the judgement coming. Silence ushers in divine retribution (Ezekiel 33:16-21)

Beloved, silence is not an option to God. He is going to move and bring salvation and deliverance to our nation at some point in time; but we will be left out of the salvation if we as His Bride and His Church abandon our posts in this great war. Under military criminal code, the maximum penalty for desertion during a declared war is the death sentence. We are in a war right now and the enemy is pulling out all demons and weapons in his arsenal to ensure his edict withstands opposition. It is time to go all in and recognize that we were created and positioned for such a time as this. DO NOT ABANDON POST!!! You are only on the winning side when you rise up to your post, press in and forward fearlessly, refusing to back down to perdition (Heb. 10:39)

V. 4:15-17 (AMP)
“Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, ‘Go, gather all the Jews that are present in Susa, and observe a fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids also will fast in the same way. Then I will go in to [see] the king [without being summoned], which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish.’…”

It is time to fast. I understand the cringe that must’ve gone up some spines when saying that; but it’s necessary. As Americans, we like to eat. America as a whole is fat. Fat on food, comforts, self-indulgence and idolatry. It’s time to cut off the fat. God made it clear in Isaiah 58 that the kind of fast He wants is one that breaks the chains of the oppressed, breaks bonds of wickedness, shatters the yoke, caring for orphans, widows, and the fatherless. It is only then that our light will shine forth bringing a new dawn, righteousness preceding us, and the Glory of the Lord on its heels. It’s then that He will hear our cries and answer us. We must have an unrelenting ‘all or nothing’ mentality!!! This is LIFE OR DEATH.

I encourage you to read the word the Lord gave for 2019: 2019: It’s All About Righteousness. I saw a great and mighty army arising and taking up their weapons to recover what had been lost and forgotten; relics of righteousness. You will find empowerment and a deeper insight into what God wants to do now.

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.

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!!!

Isaiah 60:1 (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.”
Isaiah 60:2-3 (NLT) Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth, but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you.All nations will come to your light; mighty kings will come to see your radiance.”

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!

Do You See It Now?

Thousands saved in Southeast Asia and the sound of an abundance of rain!!! 💨🌧🌊

This afternoon I shared a final count update from Jeremiah of people who gave their lives to Jesus in a 6 days period while ministering in Southeast Asia in one region! Prepare to be blown away at Jesus!!! Acts 2 being made manifest present day!!!

I also released a brief prophetic Word of the Lord and encouragement pertaining to the outpouring of the rains of the Spirit, holding tightly to the promises of God in the face of adversity, and persevering to receive double the recompense and double the blessing!

The Lord is saying, “where are they that would prepare the way? Where are they that would seek My face in the difficult place?”

Blessings,
