We Are But Vessels for His Glory

This week has been a whirlwind and I find myself unable to keep up in sharing of what has been taking place; but the fruit has not ceased in coming forth in greater proportions. In all things, I find myself continually saying, “expect the unexpected”, as I shared in my previous post.

On Tuesday, the ladies and I went with AnaMaria, our incredible host, to her church to share and minister at a ladies’ meeting. My mother and sister-in-love shared about ministering to Jesus first and cultivating intimacy with Him. I went to the meeting thinking I had nothing to share, but on the way the Lord downloaded what He desired the ladies to know. I shared on how the Lord has called the warring women of Spain to stand, arise, declare the Word of the Lord over their land, and to claim their inheritance. The whole meeting bore a weighty Presence of God and then we were asked to pray over the women.

Sharing a prophetic word and charge to the warring women of Spain. 

As I prayed over the ladies, Jesus began to speak to me about them and give me pictures of what He was declaring them. I gave them the words and the women began to share of how they had been weighted down in anxiety and depression, and had numerous ailments and afflictions. One lady had pain in her back and stomach for 2 and a half years and the doctors had no answers, saying she was making it up. I had a picture of her hands tied and Jesus coming and loosing the bonds. I then prayed for her twice and the pain significantly lessened. For another, I saw Jesus putting His hands on her shoulders and massaging them. She said for 5 months she’s had many worries and severe anxiety and her shoulders have hurt the whole time. I also saw she had weights tied to her ankle. I gave her this word and said she had pain in her leg for 5 months and had trouble walking. I prayed for her and she said she felt heat where my hands were on her leg and shoulders and the pain left her. She felt taller and freer. Many others were healed, encouraged and freed from bondage; it was a fiery time of release all around!

After the ladies meeting we met up with Israel, Abi (Israel’s sister), and her friend, Eva, to share the Gospel with her. I shared the Gospel using the Evangecube; but I didn’t expect that God would have me include my testimony of giving my life to Jesus and being forgiven, healed from all of my diseases, and set free from anger, unforgiveness, fear, unbelief, and bitterness. It was an emotional time and she was deeply moved by my passion for Jesus and in my testimony of what He has done for me. In the end she gave her life to Jesus! She said that she felt a peace come upon her as she made this decision; and she was touched so much that she set up another meeting with a coworker to have us share with him on Thursday as well.

On Wednesday evening, we met up with our pastors for another meeting with a couple whom they were to marry. We got a bit lost in translation and were under the impression that the couple we were meeting with were delving into witchcraft and were not necessarily up with Jesus. We found out later upon meeting Enrique, Amanda, and their children, Christian, and Nicole, that this was not the case. We shared the Gospel with them and they came to the Lord! I discerned they needed prayer for healing and they said the oldest daughter, Louisa, had a cyst under her arm and she needed prayer for healing; as well as Enrique needing healing for asthma. They were touched from the Lord and genuinely wanted God’s hand leading their lives as they go forward. We prayed for them and blessed them, their family, their marriage, and their home.

Brothers and sisters, we are simply vessels to be used for His Glory. He doesn’t need us to accomplish and establish His will on earth, but He chooses to invite us in to partner with Him in His grand plan here on earth. I’ve said it before and I will say again, there is nothing special about us. We are simple people being simply obedient. Being a vessel means that we have emptied ourselves of ourselves and have invited God to come in and fill us with His Spirit until it overflows and drenches those in our midst. With His Spirit living within us, leading us, guiding us, and flowing through us, we cannot fail! We must be a willing vessel for the power of God to be released through us. We can be a vessel but if we are not completely willing and submitted to Him, we will be ineffective and stagnant. We will be like the Dead Sea, who receives the water of life but has no outsource; therefore, it’s waters are distasteful and dead, there is no life within them.

Romans 9:22-28 (TPT)

“And in the same way, although God has every right to unleash His anger and demonstrate His power, yet He is extremely patient with those who deserve wrath—vessels prepared for destruction. And doesn’t He also have the right to release the revelation of the wealth of His glory to His vessels of mercy, whom God prepared beforehand to receive His glory? Even for us, whether we are Jews or non-Jews, we are those He has called to experience His glory. Remember the prophecy God gave in Hosea: “To those who were rejected and not My people, I will say to them: ‘You are mine.’ And to those who were unloved I will say: ‘You are my darling.’” And: “In the place where they were told, ‘You are nobody,’ this will be the very place where they will be renamed ‘Children of the living God.’ ” And the prophet Isaiah cries out to Israel: Though the children of Israel are as many as the sands of the seashore, only a remnant will be saved. For the Lord Yahweh will act and carry out His Word on the earth, and waste no time to accomplish it!”

Have you made yourself a willing vessel for the Lord today? Have you been truly emptied of yourself that Father may fill you with His Spirit and flow through you as a conduit of revival?

The power of God flows freely through a conduit such as this, and that’s how hearts are touched, lives are saved and are transformed. I encourage you to evaluate your life with the Lord today and ask Him if you are a fully willing vessel being used for His Glory; and how you can become freshly submitted to a Him today! This must become our daily submission and partnership with Him, a continual process of refining and growth.

Signs and wonders will follow those who believe, those who are conduits of revival.

Expect the Unexpected! 

The days have been long and hours of sleep short here in Spain. The sun sets close to ten o’clock in the evening, and we usually do not arrive back to the house until between eleven in the evening and one o’clock in the morning after a long day of ministering; where we sometimes proceed to eat dinner. The mornings are predominantly slow until around ten in the morning, depending upon which team you are on and if you have appointments for ministering to the lost here.

If there is one thing that I am learning on this trip that I could share with you, it would be that you have to live life going with the flow. More importantly, the flow of Holy Spirit! This is not a new lesson for me and I have walked through it before. However, it is one that I am learning on a deeper level. Winging it is completely not how I am wired. I operate well on a schedule and I like having a pretty clear idea of what my day is going to look like; but here in Spain that theology simply does not work. My husband has a motto that I hear quite frequently, “expect the unexpected!” I have found God reminding me of that numerous times on this adventure. Not one moment of this trip has been as expected. In fact, we missed our flights here after being stuck on the Tarmac for hours and the guys’ bags didn’t get here until yesterday.

Monday turned out to be one of those days. My partner this week, John, and I were to eat lunch with the pastors that we are aligning with, Pastor Pablo and Pastor Elsa. We met with them and enjoyed a full three course meal and spent a few hours with them at their church before we were to meet with our two appointments in the evening. What we did not expect when conversing with them is to find out the things taking place in their region; the economy is very poor with few jobs, depression, drugs, trafficking, and they were also surrounded by an amount of witchcraft that was cursing them and their church. They had also been through a wave of persecution from other ministers in the area. What I thought would be a meal for relationship building also turned into a time of encouragement them in the faith to stand strong, and a powerful time of deliverance, casting out demons, repentance, and prayer.

Expect the unexpected.

From there we headed to our appointments only to find we had lost our translator for the day and had to forego the appointments for another time; which led into spending more time with the pastors. When arriving back to the base, my mother and father-in-law were headed to an appointment with the co-worker of one of our translators and son of Pastor Abel, Israel; they invited us, so we tagged along.

Expect the unexpected.

IMG_4372

We met up with Israel, and his friend, David. David did not believe in God and from what I understand had an interesting perspective on how all creation existed; that it was more so like a video game with a game master. What a perfect set-up for sharing the Gospel!!!

We sat with him and got to know him. We talked quite some time about his desire to design a video game. Then my partner, John, in one mind-blowing swoop, transitioned into the greatest battle of good v.s. evil and how there really is a grand game master in charge of it all; and how the good wins in the end! We were all astonished at this!

Expect the unexpected.

After giving the parallel of truth against David’s own perception, he allowed John to share with him the story of the Gospel through the tool we are using, the evangecube. In the end, he ended up not choosing Jesus. He saw himself and his good deeds as enough and thought perhaps there was another way; even though we had already explained that there is no other way, JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY.

What do you do in a circumstance like that after you have been rejected in preaching the Gospel? Do you beat them over the head with the Bible and try to force them see the light and choose Jesus? Do you take them to dinner and continue to spend time with them and love on them the way Jesus would? We chose the latter. You encourage yourself in the the truth from Jesus’ own mouth in Luke 10:16 “Jesus concluded His instructions to the seventy with these words: ‘Remember this: Whoever listens to your message is actually listening to Me. And anyone who rejects you is rejecting Me, and not only Me but the One who sent Me.'” We had been faithful in proclaiming the Truth of Jesus’ death and resurrection and the rest is up to God and that person. You trust in God’s promise that when His Word goes forth, it ALWAYS accomplishes what it was sent out to do. A seed was planted that will one day produce a harvest. In faith.

We went to dinner with Israel and David and built relationship. They will know Him in how well you love. Though we were disappointed David didn’t choose Jesus, we loved on him. For me, love went up to a whole notha’ level that night when I ate a whole fried baby octopus. Loving others for Jesus this trip has stretched me in many ways, including multiplying my prayer of blessing on what I was to consume: “Lord, wherever You lead me, I’ll follow; whatever You feed me, I’ll swallow!” I got to add another tag onto that prayer that night: “Lord, I’ll put it down; You help me keep it down!”

My challenge to you today is that you would seriously ask yourself this question: Am I fully submitted to being used of God in HIS way and HIS time, NOT my own? 

That morning in prayer with the team over the day that was ahead of us, I heard the Lord say, “Expect the unexpected!” In telling me that, He was inviting me out of my own agenda and into HIS divine design for the day.

Proverbs‬ ‭16:1-7‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
“Go ahead and make all the plans you want, but it’s the Lord who will ultimately direct your steps. We are all in love with our own opinions, convinced they’re correct. But the Lord is in the midst of us, testing and probing our every motive. Before you do anything, put your trust totally in God and not in yourself. Then every plan you make will succeed. The Lord works everything together to accomplish His purpose. Even the wicked are included in His plans— He sets them aside for the day of disaster. Exalting yourself is disgusting to the Lord, for pride attracts His punishment— and you can count on that! You can avoid evil through surrendered worship and the fear of God, for the power of His faithful love removes sin’s guilt and grip over you. When the Lord is pleased with the decisions you’ve made, He activates grace to turn enemies into friends.”

If you found yourself in the same boat as me, will you join me in a fresh surrender to HIS WAY and not our own? Will you ask Him how you can partner with Him in His grand plan for your life today? 

I promise you this: HIS WAY WILL ALWAYS BE BETTER THAN OUR OWN. It will also ALWAYS PRODUCE THE GREATEST ETERNAL FRUIT!

Proverbs‬ ‭16:9‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
“Within your heart you can make plans for your future, but the Lord chooses the steps you take to get there.”

We are but vessels.

Victorious in Light

This morning while in the secret place, I had been reading the last few chapters of Mark’s account of Jesus’ path to the cross, His resurrection, His encounters with believers and His friends after His resurrection, and of His commission to His apostles to go into all the earth, preach the Good News and make disciples.

I reflected upon what Jesus did during those specific last days two-thousand years ago. He suffered continuous betrayal, died a cruel sinner’s death upon the cross, though He be sinless. He shattered the gates of hell and took back the keys of death and the grave, and He rose to life victoriously. He commissioned His apostles and us to go to every nation, tribe, and tongue and declare that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand; and He ascended to sit upon His heavenly throne and reign victoriously forever. He went to prepare a place for us.

As I sat overwhelmed with a fresh revelation of this reality leading up to Resurrection Day tomorrow, He began to speak to me about what He is doing now and what He is going to do. I heard Him say:

“Glory and splendor are rising unto My name. Death has been defeated and I am victorious in light!!! You will look and see My glory in ways unheard of! So much joy is coming in a mighty increase, yes, a mighty crescendo throughout eternity.

The nations will gaze upon Me and be filled with new life!

My glory is My goodness; and I restore what was broken and severed. You have yet to know what I am going to do! For what is coming is going to be greater than what has been!

For My name’s sake, I am bringing with Me a new light and a new life in this present darkness. Where the sun and moon will be darkened, I will bring a flash of light that will be a sign to you of My promise. A sign of release to My gift of restoration will you see.

I am taking what was broken and left in destitution and I am rebuilding a new creation, far better than what was. The nations will gaze upon what I masterfully create and will be amazed and in awe and wonder!

You will know the age of rejoicing has come by these signs. Come with your joy offerings and your sacrifices of love and watch what I do! I make all things better than before! I make all things new!”

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

V. 10, 14 (TPT)
“Foreigners will rebuild your walls and their kings will serve you. Even though I punished you in My anger, I will restore you in My gracious favor, and show you My tender compassion.”
“The descendants of your oppressors will come bowing low before you, and all who hated you will bow down at your feet. They will call you The Beautiful City of Yahweh, Glorious Zion of the Holy One of Israel.”

V. 15-16 (TPT)
“Although once you were rejected and despised, undesirable for anyone to pass through you, I will make you majestic forever, a source of joy for every generation. You will guzzle the milk of nations and suckle at the breast of kings. You will know Me intimately that I am Yahweh, your Savior, for I am the Mighty Hero who rules over Jacob’s tribes, your Kinsman-Redeemer!”

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

Israel: Ekballo!

For the past 39 days, thousands across America and the nations have been in an extended season of a Jesus Fast; praying for a fresh wave of Revival, Reformation, and the Proclamation of the Gospel to the nations. We have seen that we are in a critical 70-year transitional moment in history, as Daniel saw in his day in Daniel 9He set his face to fasting and prayer, in repentance with humility before the Lord; that a shift would take place in the desolate reality of his day, and that the Lord would extend His hand with forgiveness, restoration, and transformation. We know that he was met by the messenger angel, Gabriel, in the middle of praying and was encouraged that from the very moment he began praying, his prayer was heard in Heaven and a response was on its way (Daniel 9:20-22).

Astonishingly, these acts from Daniel harbingered a complete shift in the empires, powers, and principalities plaguing his day. Could it be that a humble act of one simple person being simply obedient, could in fact, change the course of history; not just for their people, but for the nations of the earth? We believe it can and that it will. We also know that where there is unity, He commands a blessing (Psalm 133). If the prayers of one righteous person could do all of those things, then what kind of kingdom-shaking fruit could the unified fasting and prayer of thousands across the world produce?

It is time to seize this kairos moment.

It is imperative that in seizing this moment, that we also pray for the nation of Israel, God’s chosen people. It is no coincidence that tomorrow, day 40 of this fast, is election day in Israel. There is a grand upheaval taking place in the unseen realm that we must acknowledge and not ignore. Make no mistake, if we do not stand with Israel and contend in prayer for His people and His government that has no end to be established in the land; then we will have missed it completely. It has been 70 years since Israel became a nation and the evangelistic outpouring of the Spirit began in 1948. We must pray for His government to be established in Israel and for righteous, God-fearing leaders to be set in place; and that grace and favor would be released.

When Jesus first commissioned His disciples in Matthew 9:36-38 as He gazed upon His people and saw that they were lost, weary, harassed, confused, scattered (as if being flayed, mangled, or skinned alive); and He felt such deep compassion upon them that it drove Him to action. He said, “Pray (plead, ‘urge you to beg Me’) to the Lord of the Harvest to SEND (EKBALLO- to hurl forth with violence, cast out, thrust forth) forth laborers into the Harvest.” As He sent His disciples out, He told them to go to the Israel- God’s lost sheep (Matthew 10:5-8) and not to the Gentiles. Because of their rejection of Him, we now are able to partake in eternity with Him; however, that desire never ceased even though they rejected Him. He will never cease in His pursuit of His Beloved.

Romans 11:11-12, 15 (TPT)
“So, am I saying that Israel stumbled so badly that they will never get back up? Certainly not! Rather, it was because of their stumble that salvation now extends to all the non-Jewish people, in order to make Israel jealous and desire the very things that God has freely given them. So if all the world is being greatly enriched through their failure, and through their fall great spiritual wealth is given to the non-Jewish people, IMAGINE HOW MUCH MORE WILL ISRAEL’S AWAKENING BRING TO US ALL!
“For if their temporary rejection released the reconciling power of grace into the world, what will happen when Israel is reinstated and reconciled to God? It will unleash resurrection power throughout the whole earth!”

IMAGINE HOW MUCH MORE WILL ISRAEL’S AWAKENING BRING TO US ALL!
IT WILL UNLEASH RESURRECTION POWER THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EARTH!

The global proclamation of the Gospel with signs, wonders, and stadiums filled!

This is what we are after. In prayer for Israel this morning and the elections, the Lord spoke this word:

“Your hour has come, Israel. The hour in which I take that which you have known as your reality and cause a great shaking and sifting. I am uprooting all opposition and enemy invasion. I will cause all that is opposed to Me and My plans and purposes to fall and be cast down. Every demonic force attempting to overthrow My hand in the land will be exposed on a micro level as well as a macro level. All corruption will be exposed and condemned.

Surely, it will not get beyond Me as I step in to set in place those in which I have ordained to take their place. You have been at war for your identity for long enough. I am stepping in with My hand of might and I am taking out of play all that would oppose you, seek to cause you harm, to try and orphan you, and to keep you in your shackles. Yes, I am shattering your shackles! No longer will you remain alone and isolated; but I am causing those who are riding with Me to join you and partner with you. The nations will look upon you and be in awe and wonder as I bring forth liberation you have not seen for a time and a half. They will will look upon you and say, ‘We have not seen such peace in our lifetime!’

For a time I seemed afar off, but now, I am coming close! Behold, I will demonstrate My power in the days ahead and all nations will see My victory! Your land promised you will be returned to you. No longer will foreigners occupy your territory; you will again live in the land given to your ancestors. Yes, you will dwell in your inheritance!

I will again clothe you with victory and righteousness. No longer will you be blindsided by that which would cause you harm; but I will take care of all that would attempt to overtake you. I am your Defender! Set your gaze on Me and align your focus on My Son!”

IMG_1195

I felt very strongly that the Lord desires to fulfill His promise in Isaiah 52:1-12:

“Wake up, wake up, O Zion! Clothe yourself with strength. Put on your beautiful clothes, O holy city of Jerusalem, for unclean and godless people will enter your gates no longer. Rise from the dust, O Jerusalem. Sit in a place of honor. Remove the chains of slavery from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. For this is what the Lord says: ‘When I sold you into exile, I received no payment. Now I can redeem you without having to pay for you.’
This is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘Long ago My people chose to live in Egypt. Now they are oppressed by Assyria. What is this?’ asks the Lord. ‘Why are My people enslaved again? Those who rule them shout in exultation. My name is blasphemed all day long. But I will reveal My name to My people, and they will come to know its power. Then at last they will recognize that I am the one who speaks to them.’
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!
The watchmen shout and sing with joy, for before their very eyes they see the Lord returning to Jerusalem.
Let the ruins of Jerusalem break into joyful song, for the Lord has comforted His people. He has redeemed Jerusalem.
The Lord has demonstrated His holy power before the eyes of all the nations.
All the ends of the earth will see the victory of our God.
Get out! Get out and leave your captivity, where everything you touch is unclean. Get out of there and purify yourselves, you who carry home the sacred objects of the Lord. You will not leave in a hurry, running for your lives. For the Lord will go ahead of you; yes, the God of Israel will protect you from behind.”

Join us in praying:
Jesus, once again we know You are looking to Your own people harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd. And we know Your heart is broken because there are few laborers. So we take up Your groan and Your prayer. We seek to align with Your broken heart. We beg You to do what You have been longing to do since You first commanded Your disciples to pray this prayer, “Hurl forth laborers to the lost sheep of the house of Israel!” We say as we pray, “Ekballo Your laborers, and here we are, send us!” May we be those who grant the desire of Your heart to set the earth ablaze for the Glory of the Lord as You arrive to do the same!

Awakening is Breaking Forth!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Almond_tree,_snow.

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

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

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

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

IMG_0705 (1)

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

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

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

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

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

THE BREAKER IS HERE! DO YOU NOT PERCEIVE IT? 

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

Salvation Through a Babe

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To Ascend is to Offend

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Zechariah 2:5 (AMP)
“For I,” declares the Lord, “will be a wall of fire around her [protecting her from enemies], and I will be the glory in her midst.”
