Recently this past week, I happened to peruse past an article that Kentucky governor, Matt Bevin had shared from President Trump’s Facebook that not only caught my attention; but also left me leaping and shouting with the fire of God. My kids came running to where I was asking what was going on as I was uncontrollably shouting out in tongues. 😁 To clarify what this is about, I will give a brief backstory. In August of 2017, I awoke from a dream immediately unable to recall it; but heard Holy Spirit very clearly say the word, “Kentucky”. For a few days I dwelt on it for understanding and sought out the dream I had no recollection of, knowing assuredly it was of great importance. In praying over it, the Lord graciously gave me the dream in the form of a vision. This set me on a path of searching out the revival history of Kentucky, knowing not one single thing about the state. What I discovered left me on fire and astounded.
In the very heart of Kentucky in 1776, the first settlement town in the west named Harrodsburg had been erected that cradled the fires of the Wilderness Revival. Such an incredible outpouring took place that completely transformed the region and it began to spread. This very soil became the seedbed for the Second Great Awakening; for it was from this Revival that ministers began going into all of America and eventually the world, carrying the Gospel to the unreached.
In November of last year, the Lord opened up a miraculous door and called us to take a faith journey to Harrodsburg to redig the wells of Revival in the land that had affected the nations. Our whole life together has been a crazy adventure built on total faith in His ways, so it was exciting to do it again. I had a dream seared into my heart and spirit that what I had seen in the dream, that He would lead us to the very spot somehow that we may strike the ground as we had done with Jesus in my dream.
We spent five days praying over the land from the high places, decreeing every word that God had spoken in times past, as well as every word, dream, Scripture, vision and declaration He had revealed to us. On the last day, we visited Shakertown Village, where the Shaker movement was birthed. We prayed and prophesied over the village and I had earnestly searched the land, knowing that I would discover the very place Jesus led us to in the dream. We finished our time there and as we were leaving, my spirit a bit down having not seen it yet, I, still filled with hope, took one final glance down a road I had not noticed before. To my bewilderment, there it was! There, we commenced doing the very thing we had done in the spirit; we struck the ground and called for Revival to rise again in Harrodsburg, which had become very much a disheveled, broken down town riddled with the spirit of poverty and pharmakeia (sorcery and drugs).
HE IS FAITHFUL WHO PROMISED!!!
When I saw this article from Governor Bevin, I was already filled with excitement because I had noticed how after we went in like insurgents and infiltrated enemy strongholds to plant Holy Spirit Revival bombs, that the state of Kentucky began to change. Since November 2018, employment rates have skyrocketed as businesses are sowing their seeds into the state. Kentucky is led by a God-fearing man who will not relent or back down in seeing the state become the first abortion-free state as he fights for Life. God is releasing blessings abundantly as in Isaiah 49.
What really stirred up the fire in my spirit though was reading the first sentence where Apple is investing millions in Harrodsburg!!!
“It’s amazing, in the middle of horse country, you have … a range of people from skilled trades to scientists, right in the middle of this small town, making the best glass in the world. And we know that because we test it all.”
“This is the best glass in the world, and it would surprise many people because … you see this little small town, and you have state-of-the-art technology and state-of-the-art manufacturing, and that’s what we see as the future of manufacturing in the United States, and that’s what our advanced manufacturing fun is all about.”
THIS is the power of our decree and agreement with the will and Word of the Lord! THIS is the power of simple obedience!!!
The Lord reminded me of a word He spoke on November 4, 2018 and we are seeing it come into fruition in these days. This article serves as a beautiful reminder of that.
My daughter, a reconnecting is emerging in rebuilding the foundation of holiness. As this emergence of convergence takes place, a cataclysmic explosion will take place that will usher in the descent of Heaven’s holy fire. As this takes place, a bringing together of what was once broken will come forth.
In this place, a whole new creation will come forth and all the nations will looks on and say, “What is this place? We have seen nothing like it before! Is this really Kentucky? Is this really the one that was once shrinking and diminishing in its poverty state? Now, it’s flourishing and new life is springing forth! The economy of this state is excelling in ways beyond even the leading locations across the United States! How can this be? And yet,we see this before our very eyes! There is much to learn from this unified state! Come! Let us go to Kentucky and be taught in the ways of transformation and reformation! Surely, we could bring this back to our home and see the same result!”

Here we are at day 25! It is hard to imagine before The 40 that we could be so far in and a little over two weeks from completing the commitment God has placed in our hearts. The spiritual benefits that come from the daily overcoming of obstacles to remain faithful in worship to The King of The Universe will one day astound us all. Never give in to the fleshly desires now in exchange for the eternal reward that is being built up for you and everyone around you. Let’s press on and press in together.
By this time, the weight of the impossible has probably tried to crush you or in the very least discourage you. Several people have indicated to me this week that they were worried about me physically. One even said that I was crazy and out of my mind. However, as long as we are partnered with Jesus and what He has for us, I would rather be walking in the mind of Christ than my own mind anyway.
It should not be a surprise to any of us that trusted spiritual and especially worldly influences around us do not understand the depth of what is taking place. The God of great grace and mercy has called us out, or we have submitted to Him out of worship, in order for the impossible to take place. When God moves, it is not understood completely by the most spiritual people we could ever think of. We desire the perfect grace and mercy of God to be made manifest in us, our families, neighborhoods, workplaces, regions, and nations. As much as we think we may understand Him and His ways, we do not.
We can see clearly that hunger and expectation has the ability to change the situations around us. The woman with the issue of blood (Luke 8:43-48) only wanted to get close enough to touch Jesus’ garment. She did what was illegal and could have gotten her stoned to death by pushing,maybe even crawling, through a crowd of people and just to put her “unclean” hands on Jesus. It was her hunger and expectation that drove her to do what others would not. This was the faith that healed and restored her. This is where we are today. We are all believing for the “impossible” things to happen for the glory of God!
But what if these things do not happen during or after The 40?
What if we go through The 40 and do not see anything change?
What if our hunger and expectation are seemingly not rewarded?
Take heart, my brothers and sisters, this will align us on the same level as one “after God’s own heart”, David. David was hand picked by the Lord and anointed to be king long before it actually takes place. David has to live a life of character and actually doing the job of the king, like challenging Goliath, before he ever saw the promotion that God had anointed him for. Eventually, he became king and did great for a while.
However, it seems David had a weakness for women. Because David decided to give in to this weakness just one time, it led him to deception, adultery, murder, and pain. The prophet Nathan reveals that God has seen it all and finally David repents. What is the judgment for all of this sin? David’s recently born son would die. This is where we pick up in the scripture reading for today:
2 Samuel 12:15-16 And the Lord struck the child that Uriah’s wife bore to David, and it became ill. David therefore pleaded with God for the child, and David fasted and went in and lay all night on the ground.
Even though David knew he deserved the judgment and punishment that God had said, he increases his expectation that God’s great mercy and grace is greater than his sin. David comes in humility, prayer, and fasting and cries out to God for mercy for his baby. He does this for 7 days until the baby dies. His servants do not even want to tell him that his baby has died because they are unsure what he will do when he finds out the worst has happened. David’s hopes, desires, and expectations for the life of his baby because of the mercy of God are about to be crushed. What will his response be?
I do not know what the physicians were telling him and Bathsheba, but God had told him the baby would die. That seems to be a very definite thing to me. Surely, trusted and godly people came in after a few days of prayer and fasting and felt the need to prepare him for the worst. There was no reason for him to expect that God would do anything different than He Himself had said. However, David increased expectation in The God of grace and mercy. Throwing himself at the feet of The Great Shepherd and walking through the valley of the shadow of death, David is rewarded with seemingly nothing. Here is David’s response when he finds out this baby is dead:
Vs. 20 So David arose from the ground, washed and anointed himself, and changed his clothes; and he went into the house of the Lord and worshiped. Then he went to his own house; and when he requested, they set food before him, and he ate.
He cleans himself up, puts on his best worship attire, and goes to The house of The Lord and worships. Great expectations unmet did not crush David and cause him to turn away, but causes him to be able to praise through the pain of unmet expectation. This does not make sense to anyone and they ask him about it.
Vs. 21 Then his servants said to him, “What is this that you have done? You fasted and wept for the child while he was alive, but when the child died, you arose and ate food.”
His expectations and prayers were unmet, and he chose to worship and adore God anyway because he knew His God. The Great God of Mercy and Grace was still the same whether David got what he desired or not.
Vs. 22-23 And he said, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, ‘Who can tell whether the Lord will be gracious to me, that the child may live?’ But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”
David knew the value in hunger and increasing expectation to work mighty things in the heavenly realm. It had not happened the way he wanted. However, because of a right heart of hunger and expectation to pray the greatest prayer he could think of, he was prepared to praise even through the pain. Immediately after this, Solomon is born and God names him Jedidiah which means beloved of the Lord. David’s hunger and expectation caused a blessing to take place that was not the way David prayed or wanted, but came about at a different time and different way.
This is the kind of hunger, expectation, and faith that I want!
No matter the difficulties, trials, and impossibilities that we bring to the Lord during this time, may we all increase our hunger and expectation to see the impossible made manifest into reality. Even if these things do not take place how we want or think they should, we must pray for the best and cry out to God. Today, increase your hunger and expectation and may this increase your worship through both met and unmet expectations.
Jesus, increase my hunger and expectation today. I want to have faith for the impossible miracles to take place no matter what I see or hear. Help me to trust You to bring about the greatest good as my expectations are increased, and I cry out to You for the greatest good. Help me to never be discouraged or back down from believing the best no matter what I may see with my eyes or hear with my ears.
- Take a good look at what you are praying for.
- Ask Holy Spirit to help you increase expectation and hunger to believe in the greatest possible good
- Ask for strength, grace, and mercy for the faith to continually believe for the impossible
- Ask for worship and fresh faith to replace discouragement or unbelief that tries to come in
Be blessed with an exponential increase of expectation and hunger to continuously believe for what seems impossible to man. May all discouragement and unbelief be replaced with worship and even more increased expectation because of new revelations of The Great God of Mercy and Grace in your life..

Well, here we are at day 20, the halfway point. At the beginning of the fast, it may have seemed impossible to fast The 40, but here we are halfway to completing our commitment. If you have been here from day 1, congratulations. If you jumped in some time along the way, good job. If you fell and messed up, no problem. Let’s get up and continue on together in God’s great grace and mercy. We have the eternal reward of seeing Jesus in a special way today. Let’s run this race to receive the prize!
Today, is a special day that we remember and mark as a memorial. We see it as an encouragement to continue, but it is an important spiritual marker as well. God looks on and remembers all the special times we give to seek Him in a special way. If God is truly “a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him”, then special times of seeking Him will receive a special reward. I am sure we would all like to see some scripture backing up this encouragement. For this, let us look at Acts 10.
This chapter is pivotal for Acts and especially for us as Gentiles. Until this point, we have seen the apostles going out and ministering to God’s children in Israel only. At this moment, God changes the mind of the apostles to include all people everywhere in the preaching of the good news. God was opening the door for them to go out and preach the gospel to the uttermost part of the earth. To do this, God needed someone that was seeking Him. Someone who was doing something special in The Kingdom. He needed Cornelius.
Acts 10:1-2 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always.
Cornelius was a well-respected Roman leader who was known for fearing God, giving and praying always. Here was a Gentile seeking God. He had built a reputation as one who would seek God in a special way, so apparently, he had been doing this for years. We find out later in the chapter, that not only was he seeking God, giving generously, and praying continually, he was also fasting.
Acts 10:30 So Cornelius said, “Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,
Cornelius, a non-Jewish person, had built a lifestyle of seeking God in a special way. Here was a man that God could use to bring about the most radical change in The Kingdom since Holy Spirit fell in Acts 2.
Acts 10:3-4 About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, “Cornelius!” And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, “What is it, lord?” So he said to him, “Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God.
What does this verse say? Cornelius’ fasting, prayer, and giving went up as a memorial before The Lord. The eyes of The Lord were looking for someone who was seeking Him to change the very course of history for the rest of eternity. Unknowingly, Cornelius had built a huge neon sign in the spiritual realm that said, “Here I am, use me!” God did not have to look far or hard to see the great memorial that had been built up for years by this man that had no real guarantee of receiving anything for any of these things he did. His desire and intention was to seek God and bless His people. God sees the memorial and says, “Here is a man I can use.”
Cornelius obeys the instructions above and beyond what the angel speaks, it seems even better than Peter. A reluctant Peter comes and cannot even finish a proper sermon before the hunger and expectation in the people that Cornelius had gathered together was rewarded with the outpouring of The Spirit.
How long did Cornelius cry out, “Here I am use me”?
How many years of continuous prayer, fasting, and giving were being built up before the time was right for God to move in a mighty way?
How much time did he spend in the secret place not seeming to receive anything?
Was Cornelius fasting and praying somewhere while the Holy Spirit was poured out on the apostles in the upper room?
How big was the memorial that was built up before God?
On that day, when Holy Spirit fell on him and all the people he had gathered together in obedience to the word, it was all worth it. He would not have traded one shekel, one meal, one hour that went into the building of this memorial in The Kingdom. At this point, his spirit was crying out more than ever, “Here I am use me!”
This is my encouragement for you. No matter how you may have struggled during the first 20 days, Jesus is worth it. The memorial being built in your life is greater than you could imagine. How many have been willing to go The 40 that God might look on the earth and see these memorials all over the earth saying, “Here I am use me!”? This is who I want to be. I want to be used for The Kingdom. I want to be a laborer in the harvest. I want to be the most useful instrument in The Kingdom. If there is no one else willing to do the dirty work, may my sign continue to say, “Here I am, use me!!!” I know this is your heart as well.
What can God do with a community of people who say “Here I am use me” with their lips and their lifestyle?
Jesus, give me the strength of spirit and resolve to continue throughout the rest of The 40 and beyond in a memorial building lifestyle. I desire to be the one whose lips and lifestyle loudly proclaim, “Here I am use me!”
- Ask Holy Spirit to strengthen you to continue in your daily commitment
- Continue to pray “Here I am use me” with your lips
- Become increasingly obedient in your day to day life in all Holy Spirit reveals
Be blessed to receive revelation of the memorial you have created by recognizing the answered prayers and receiving the promises of God in an increasing measure. May you be used mightily for The Kingdom as your heart and character line up with The King’s!
Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!
As we near the end of the second week, I want to encourage you to continue to return to The Lord for strength and life. Some may have incredible will power, but the point of fasting and prayer is to humble yourself and say, “God, I need You!” I would not have been able to make it this far without supernatural strength.
Here is another encouragement from Jesus’ words:
Matthew 5:3 Blessed [spiritually prosperous, happy, to be admired] are the poor in spirit [those devoid of spiritual arrogance, those who regard themselves as insignificant], for theirs is the kingdom of heaven [both now and forever].
Those of us who realize our need for God are blessed and will be spiritually prosperous because we know it is His work in us and not the work of our hands. Continue to trust in the grace and mercy of a loving God, and look to Him for all that you need.
As we continue to press in to The Lord and seek Him, we come to a realization. Most of the time, food becomes built up in our lives as an idol, in the very least as a great treasure. It is what we think about. It is what we talk about. It is what we build our gatherings around. “Which restaurant do you want to go to?”, “What is for dinner?“, and “What are we going to do for food?” are common questions, especially in the American society.
Our culture is built around the value of food, and often our waistlines reflect it. You probably find this out more when you are fasting than any other time. It is almost necessary to become a recluse because family time, hospitality, and all social gatherings are food-centered. When this comfort is taken away, it can be hard to figure out what to do, for the one fasting and for those around them. If you are not eating, for whatever reason, often your own family does not even know how to treat you.
In Matthew 4, Jesus elects to go The 40 to strengthen Himself spiritually to stand up against the temptation of the enemy. What does the enemy tempt Jesus with first? Food! Here is Jesus’ answer quoting from the scriptures:
Matthew 4:4, Deuteronomy 8:3 “It is written,‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”
Food is necessary and important for the body to live, but Jesus puts His focus on what really matters, treasuring the Word of God. Even though your body may be sustained physically, you can still become sick and even die of a broken heart or spirit. However, The Word of God brings life to you that you cannot get any other way. Your value has to be on what really matters.
As we are fasting, I pray that even though the comfort of food has been taken away, you replace it with the life giving Word of God. When we read The Bible and seek Him in prayer for a personal word, this is what will sustain us through every situation in our lives. If you have not already, I encourage you to set aside some extra time to read The Bible and pray, especially while you fast. This will help you not only grow spiritually, but sustain you during The 40.
Someone else who knew the importance of the word is someone we know for going through some of the most difficult trials anyone has ever had to face, Job. In the middle of his difficult situation where everything is taken away and even his wife and friends are turning against him, this is what He says:
Job 23:12 I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth More than my necessary food.
Everything that God has to say is vitally important. Job says it should be treasured more than the food that is necessary to survive. In his situation, he did not need food. Food could not help him out of his grief and loss. It could do nothing for Him. However, he was hoping, clinging, and longing for The word from the mouth of God. Life comes from Him! Hope comes from Him! Strength comes from Him! As we seek The Lord, we must have ears to hear His word. When we hear His word, we must be obedient to receive the true blessings He wants to pour out upon us.
Jesus, help me to truly treasure the words of your mouth more than anything in my life. Open my ears to hear You. Open my heart to obey You. I want to base my life upon Your life-giving, life-sustaining word spoken to Me.
- Commit 15 – 30 mins extra time to spend seeking The Lord each day.
- Read The Bible, 1-5 chapters a day
- Ask Holy Spirit to open your ears and help you to truly value The Word
Be blessed with eyes to see the face of God, ears to hear new revelations of His glory, and a heart to be truly transformed by His presence! May this propel you to the next level in Him!
Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!
It is a historic window of time we are in at the moment given that fifty years ago this week, July 16 – July 24, man first set foot on the moon with the Apollo 11 space mission. As I was sharing with my boys this morning about the moon landing that took place this day in 1969 and showing photos and video footage, the Lord began to remind me of a word He spoke on January 3rd of this year that I had typed up but never felt released to share:
During my early morning seeking time with the Lord recently, He began to speak to me and peak my wonder of creation and of the stars. As I gazed out the front window in my living room set high upon the wall, I saw the moon rising in star-mingled darkness in preparation to give way to the sun’s light. In that place, I heard the Lord say:
“The stars are testifying of the Light that is coming. Here in the night, they light up the sky with glimmers of life as a true and pure reflection of My Son rising on the horizon.
Long before the light and rays of the Son ever appear to shine upon the earth, the celestial body tells of the One Who brings light into existence.
They raise up a sound and song of light, yes, explosive light; and they gather together in a divine convergence of the emergence of the Son. Each one, though unique, tells the story of their Maker. Each one testifies of the glory and grace of the One Who fashioned them into being. An explosive power resonates throughout time and space bringing each into their purpose. Let the fire of their existence rise into a glorious bonfire of magnification.”
Job 38:4-7 (AMP)
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you know and have understanding. Who determined the measurements [of the earth], if you know? Or who stretched the [measuring] line on it? On what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God (angels) shouted for joy?”
Isaiah 44:23 (TPT)
“Sing! Starry sky above break loose with singing, for Yahweh has finished it! Shout! Earth deep below, give up your shout! Mountains high, break out with joyous songs of praise! Let the forest choirs join in, every tree singing its notes! For Yahweh has paid the ransom price for you.”
I began to feel a strong urging to release this word and I believe that this fifty year mark signifies a transformational shift in the spirit as well as in all of creation. Neil Armstrong is famously quoted for saying as he set foot on the surface of the moon, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
The Lord brought that quote to mind as I pondered on this word and I believe that He is saying, “You have entered into a divine opportunity to arise with the celestial body in the expanse of the heavens and birth a new song, a new sound, and a new magnification of the Son.
As you finish out 2019 and head into 2020, you will see an emergence of the Global Body of Christ being awakened by the Son’s Light rising upon a new dawn, a new horizon. A deep understanding of the Day of the Lord that is rising upon you will shake dead and dormant ones awake and will thrust forth Burning Ones into their destiny to reflect the Son’s Light in the earth. Just as you cannot number the stars in the sky, so too, will you be unable to number the vastness of new sound waves I am releasing through these Burning Ones as they charge forth into the night and carry with them Dawn’s Burning Light!
No longer will there be the “hard and dark places,” for I have erased that term from the very essence of vocabulary. From now on, a heralding cry will echo forth through time and space, beckoning the lost to be gathered into My bosom. The cry and song of My Burning Ones will cause the earth to tremble and the heavens to roar and pour forth Salvation’s Song! Surely, I will finish what I started!”
Psalm 148:1-6 (TPT)
The Cosmic Chorus of Praise
“Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Let the skies be filled with praise and the highest heavens with the shouts of glory! Go ahead—praise Him, all you His messengers! Praise Him some more, all you heavenly hosts! Keep it up, sun and moon! Don’t stop now, all you twinkling stars of light! Take it up even higher—up to the highest heavens, until the cosmic chorus thunders His praise! Let the entire universe erupt with praise to God. From nothing to something He spoke and created it all. He established the cosmos to last forever, and He stands behind His commands so His orders will never be revoked.”
Revelation 22:16 (AMP)
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you and to give you assurance of these things for the churches. I am the Root (the Source, the Life) and the Offspring of David, the radiant and bright Morning Star.”
Beloved, I have been saying this for what feels like ages, but the brevity of it bears an eternal witness in the heavens: THE TIME TO ARISE AND SHINE IS UPON YOU!!! THE LIGHT HAS COME!!! DO NOT WASTE ANOTHER MOMENT ON THAT WHICH DOES NOT BEAR AN ETERNAL WEIGHT AND AN ETERNAL FRUIT!!!
Isaiah 60:1-5 (AMP)
“Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come, and the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you. For in fact, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness will cover the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you [Jerusalem] and His glory and brilliance will be seen on you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes around you and see; they all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from far away, and your daughters will be looked after at their side. Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will tremble [with joy] and rejoice because the abundant wealth of the seas will be brought to you, the wealth of the nations will come to you.”
Isaiah 60:19-22 (AMP)
“The sun will no longer be your light by day, nor shall the bright glow of the moon give light to you, but the Lord will be an everlasting light for you; and your God will be your glory and splendor. Your sun will no longer set, nor will your moon wane; for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be over. Then all your people will be [uncompromisingly and consistently] righteous; they will possess the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified. The smallest one will become a thousand (a clan), and the least one a mighty nation. I, the Lord, will quicken it in its [appointed] time.”

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, 6 then, if you are pure and upright, surely now He will awaken for you and restore your righteous place. 7 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.
