From Smoke Screens to Birthing Things

While in an intense season of prayer and fasting in this last year, the Lord brought me into a time of great revelation-knowledge day in and day out. It was in that time that He spoke the following word to me and He has now released me to share it. This is what I heard Him say:

“The labor has been long and hard. The coming birth is long OVERDUE! The baby has grown so large that it will take one hard push to be cast forth. BEAR DOWN! The enemy has seen the size of the promise and has tried to snuff out its life every step of the way…Clouds of heaviness, complacency in spirit, fear rumbling as he speaks death.

My Holy Spirit will be your midwife to guide you through the final pushes. YOU ARE ON THE CUSP OF DELIVERY! The Ring of Fire has been all around you, the intense waves of burning and opposition coming against you. But I declare to you: TRANSITION IS HERE AND YOUR BULGING WATERS ARE BURSTING, THAT YOU MAY GIVE YOUR FINAL PUSHES.

As you enter into the final phase, DO NOT GIVE UP, DO NOT LOSE HEART OR YOUR FOCUS FOR THE OVERFLOW IS JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR EFFORTS FOR MY KINGDOM! 

Yes, give your final pushes and BE AMAZED at how I EKBALLO My Revival, My Outpouring, My Promise!

Do you hear it?! Do you hear the sound of My babe coming forth?! Do you hear the roar from the lungs of a nation receiving the Light of Life? Everything I do is great! EVERYTHING I FORM AND FASHION TOGETHER IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK!

BEHOLD! I have set up and established a treasure trove of fruit from the promises I implanted in your heart. Now they have taken root, grown, developed, and are manifested before your very eyes! Reach forth and take hold of your special treasure, My Beloved!”


As we begin our transition into the Hebraic New Year, 5780 at the end of September, I believe that we are entering into a season of birthing the promises of God that have long been cultivated and become deep-seeded in the hearts of His Bride. I believe the Lord is saying in this crucial transition hour:

“The past seasons and years even, for many it seemed as if the promise would never come to fruition. Some even began to doubt the word spoken to them and if they had heard correctly or if they had missed a step along the way. The witchcraft and bombardment of the enemy of your souls had caused all focus to be lost in the thick cloud of the fallout. The heavy warfare and opposition had left many feeling disoriented and caused the focus of many to become askew and out of focus, lacking clarity. This co-ordinated attack was intended to stall the delivery and to allow for time to suffocate the promise in the middle of the birthing.

I say to you…It is time to SHAKE OFF THE DUST of the past season and to rise up and discern the hour that quickly encroaches!

Do you not perceive it? Do you not feel it? The rumbling and groaning arising even now for the fulfillment of the seeds of promise?

DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BECOME LOST in the shroud of foreboding of the unknown that the enemy is attempting to use as a smoke screen to distract you from the seedbed of Revival sprouting up RIGHT NOW before you! 

DO NOT FORGET WHAT I PUT IN YOU AND SPOKE TO YOU! IT WILL NOT BE LONG NOW UNTIL YOU BIRTH THE VERY THING IN WHICH I IMPLANTED IN YOU!

You thought it was far off or that the promise had died in the darkness of the womb; but I have been weaving things together which you have not seen nor perceived! Where it seemed as if all was lost, I was there creating something beautiful and intricate from nothing. My hands were there fashioning a thing too beautiful for words and NOW My Spirit has come to breathe the Breath of Life into the masterpiece I have designed.

You didn’t even know you were still pregnant with a living thing, and SUDDENLY IT MAKES ITS APPEARANCE!

I say to you…FIX YOUR GAZE UPON MY FACE! FIX YOUR GAZE UPON MY EYES OF LOVE AND MIMIC MY BREATHS AS I GUIDE YOU AND LEAD YOU THROUGH THE BIRTHING. STAY FOCUSED ON ME AND LET ALL OTHER THINGS FADE AWAY…REST IN ME AND MY LOVE AND WITHOUT ANY EFFORT OF YOUR OWN, YOU WILL FIND THAT IT IS IN THE REST THAT THE BIRTHING COMES!”


Isaiah 55:10-11 (TPT)
“As the snow and rain that fall from Heaven do not return until they have accomplished their purpose, soaking the earth and causing it to sprout with new life, providing seed to sow and bread to eat. So also will be the word that I speak; it does not return to Me unfulfilled. My word performs My purpose and fulfills the mission I sent it out to accomplish.”

Habakkuk 2:1-3 (AMP)
“I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the tower; and I will keep watch to see what He will say to me, and what answer I will give [as His spokesman] when I am reproved. Then the Lord answered me and said, ‘Write the vision and engrave it plainly on [clay] tablets so that the one who reads it will run. For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time it hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, because it will certainly come; it will not delay.'”

Isaiah 54:1-3 (NLT)
“‘Sing, O childless woman, you who have never given birth! Break into loud and joyful song, O Jerusalem, you who have never been in labor. For the desolate woman now has more children than the woman who lives with her husband,’ says the Lord. ‘Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.'”

Can You Hear The Stars Singing?

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.”

When Jesus Comes to Town

As I stated in my post on Saturday titled, The Lost Relics of the Simple Gospel and Our Testimony, I will be sharing more today more about my recent trip to Spain. I have been sharing amazing testimonies of what God did while we were there as well as lessons along the way that apply to our everyday life and walk with the Lord.

69F8C63B-E80B-4023-9F2C-34EDA2433C60Our last Friday there, my partner, John and I were scheduled to do something we had not originally planned nor expected to do on the trip; aiding to the major summation of the entire trip…expect the unexpected! We had been told from Pastor Pablo and Elsa, the pastors we paired off with for the two weeks, that there was a couple in the church who were going through marital issues and the husband wanted a divorce. When informing us of this as we headed to another visit earlier in the week, they had asked us if we would meet with them and minister to them to try and bring some kind of reconciliation and restoration. We agreed and prayed for the Lord to do the work and that we would simply be vessels for His power and truth to flow through.

The night prior was when we had ministered and shared the Gospel at a home meeting and three people gave their hearts and lives to Jesus, as shared in the post linked above. Afterward, we went out to a late dinner at the mall nearby and our pastors informed us that the following evening would be when we would meet with the couple. Using Google Translate, they began to fill us in on the issues that had taken place in the marriage and it left us shocked and praying for divine wisdom in how to proceed. There were supposed deep strongholds and strong demonic influence and accusations, with a lot of blanks to fill in.

As Friday ensued, we anticipated that great deliverance and inner healing would need to take place; and in prayer and discussion, we both felt led to call upon our team member, Kirk, to join us as he is well trained in sozo ministry. We had the prayers of our entire team with us. Our friend, Israel, picked us up and would be our translator for the meeting. In sharing, he revealed what he had been told in preparation for the meeting; and our shock grew greater, as did our prayers for direction. We also discovered the discrepancies through translations were not entirely lining up; therefore, we were a bit unsure of what we were walking into.

We met with the couple at the church and then separated them to talk to the husband in private; with the intention of getting to the heart of the matter where he was concerned. He was open and as far as we were concerned, he did not hide any details. In fact, Pastor told us that when he heard that our team was coming to Spain, he began to feel a lack of peace and eventually asked to have a meeting with us saying he was overcome with anxiety and loss of sleep. When Jesus comes to town, all of hell shutters and knows of its impending doom! Things simply cannot remain as they were!

Ancient dungeon set upon the waters. Though dark and hopelessly drowning on the inside, surrounded by barriers to freedom, the pathway to life lies just outside the prison walls.

We began to learn in taking him through a process of his connection with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, that a great many deep wounds and hurts burdened this man as well as a horrific history of abuse from the most trusted members of his family; and he bore the scars to prove it. It was evident that sitting before us was a broken man with a broken past; in deep need of a Savior to completely heal him, deliver him, set him free, and restore him. In the process, I believe that shock of all this man endured as a young child left us reeling and praying for a blanket of peace to continue in ministering to him and drawing him into the heart of the Father, the arms of Jesus, and the comfort of Holy Spirit.

As my tear-filled eyes met Israel’s astonished, tear-stained gaze as he translated, I found myself overcome and overwhelmed with the compassion of Jesus. This man struggled to see the face of the Father, as he drowned in darkness. Filled with hatred and anger at all he had endured, he was unable to allow Holy Spirit into the room. Eventually as we guided him through a series of confessions and forgiveness, he began to feel Holy Spirit with us. He began to hear truth from Heaven about who God made him to be and a breaking off of lies occurred.

We then came to Jesus. He could not see Jesus and felt abandoned by Him in his times of greatest need through years of horror. It was then that Jesus gave me a vision of a specific time when he had endured deep abuse as a very young child and He revealed every detail of the scene before my eyes. It was in that very moment that I saw Jesus come in the room, sit down beside him, and take hold of him, enveloping him in His arms, comforting him. As I shared this through tears, the man broke down weeping and spoke of this very moment in time, of what he had endured and what he was thinking. His eyes were opened to the reality that Jesus had in fact been there the whole time and had never abandoned him or forsaken him, even in his darkest of days. Jesus used this to break off deception and to usher in His truth and reality as our Faithful Friend to the very end. Such is true for each one of us.

He shared how this history paved the way to a life of crime and how he had taken dozens of lives as a hitman for a gang he was a part of. Then Jesus entered the scene in his adult years and he had his first encounter with the power of God at a church gathering. The pastor called him forward out of the crowd and as he reluctantly came up on stage, the pastor prophesied his salvation that would come forth. He drew his gun on the pastor intending to kill him; and the pastor’s response should be that of every Follower of The Way, a martyr’s cry: With hands raised, “Go ahead and kill me! If I die, I am going to die worshipping my Savior!”

With that, he shot the pastor…but no bullet came forth from his gun, the pastor was unharmed! He fired multiple rounds in the air, all successful. Then he fired at the pastor again, with the same failed response! He hit his knees, and surrendered his life to Christ! It took some years and Jesus helped set him free from the gang bent on taking his life and that of his family.

There was always this reality to go back to, a memorial erected in his memory. He lost his way along the path, but sitting with us during this time Jesus confronted the demons of his past, cast them out, broke off the chains, and unlocked the prison doors. In the end, he could see Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit, and found a place in Heaven with all three that he never wanted to depart from. We then led him in a prayer of salvation and rededication to the Lord!

Sitting before us was a completely different man than we had met a few hours prior. So much so, that we believe a restorative power was released that night that will ultimately lead to the restoration of his marriage! He also became our driver for Sunday ministry travels!

Who would’ve thought that this man we ministered to would have such an encounter that he, an ex-assassin, would usher us around in ministry?! Now, THAT is what I call adventuring with Jesus!!!

I have a purpose in sharing this testimony. The main point being, it does not matter what our past looks like…Jesus was in it, is all over it, and working through it all to create in us an eternal weight of glory. Everyone has a Saul to Paul conversion in store where no matter how dark and ugly our past is, He will always bring us into a beautiful bliss of abundant life that compels us to go and do the unthinkable to make the name of Jesus famous in the earth and to do as He did.

We are never alone in this journey; never once before we knew Him, nor for a single moment after. It is time to step into His timeline, not the timeline of the past, and to advance; to storm the gates of hell and set free all who are bound as captives in darkness! No matter what appearances say, do it anyway!!! You have the dunamis (dynamite) power of Heaven backing you and going before you…you cannot lose unless you quit!

DO NOT QUIT! DO NOT RELENT IN THE ASCENT!

2 Corinthians 4:7-18 (TPT)
“We are like common clay jars that carry this glorious treasure within, so that the extraordinary overflow of power will be seen as God’s, not ours. Though we experience every kind of pressure, we’re not crushed. At times we don’t know what to do, but quitting is not an option. We are persecuted by others, but God has not forsaken us. We may be knocked down, but not out. We continually share in the death of Jesus in our own bodies so that the resurrection life of Jesus will be revealed through our humanity. We consider living to mean that we are constantly being handed over to death for Jesus’ sake so that the life of Jesus will be revealed through our humanity. So, then, death is at work in us but it releases life in you. We have the same Spirit of faith that is described in the Scriptures when it says,
‘First I believed, then I spoke in faith.’ So we also first believe then speak in faith. We do this because we are convinced that He who raised Jesus will raise us up with Him, and together we will all be brought into His Presence. Yes, all things work for your enrichment so that more of God’s marvelous grace will spread to more and more people, resulting in an even greater increase of praise to God, bringing Him even more glory!
So no wonder we don’t give up. For even though our outer person gradually wears out, our inner being is renewed every single day. We view our slight, short-lived troubles in the light of eternity. We see our difficulties as the substance that produces for us an eternal, weighty glory far beyond all comparison, because we don’t focus our attention on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but the unseen realm is eternal.”

The Lost Relics of the Simple Gospel and Our Testimony

It has been almost a week in updating from my time in Spain, and schedules got so busy that I never really had time to sit down and share more about what had taken place since my last post. So much so, in fact, that I’m actually back in the states; having arrived a few nights ago.

IMG_4757

Amada, our translator and worship leader for the meeting.

On Thursday, we were scheduled to go to a house church-like meeting. It was the first one of its kind in the area and was put on by a woman in the church that John and I partnered with in Torrevieja. We were unsure of what to expect in going, but it turned out to be wonderful! It was obvious this woman came with expectancy for God to move and had gone out and done her duty in bringing in the people! She was a person of peace and I bless her for her obedience! I was going to share the Gospel with the Evangecube and it was a nice surprise to have a new translator; a young woman named Amada. She had been through YWAM Madrid in recent years and led worship at our meeting as well. She and I connected really well and I had the joy prophesying over her and in getting to know her joy-filled spirit all the more afterwards as we went out to dinner.

After worshipping together, I shared the Gospel with everyone and when I came to the point where each person must make a choice of whether they want to ask Jesus into their heart and receive eternal life and salvation, no one really responded. Suddenly, our expectant host asked me to share my testimony of what Jesus did for me and why I chose Jesus. I chose a picture on the cube showing man surrounded in darkness, contrasted with God in the light. I shared how I spent my life afflicted with sickness and pain; and drowning in bitterness, anger, unforgiveness, fear, and unbelief in being abandoned by my birth father and step father. I explained how I reached the end of my rope and was desperate for hope and deliverance from the darkness I was dying in. I spoke of how God stepped in in my brokenness, surrounded me with the Love of the Father; and how Jesus came in and healed me of all of my ailments and restored my life through His sacrifice on the cross.

Our host then asked if John and my mother-in-love would share their testimonies. They shared about how God reconciled them to Himself in revealing their need for a Savior; and that simply being a good person or operating out of religion cannot save you. Suddenly, those who knew Jesus began passing around the Evangecube, picking a picture on it they most identified with, and shared their testimonies of Jesus’ work in their lives. It was beautiful! We then came back to where we began…we must all make a choice. Life or death. Light or darkness. The lost in the room had become so moved at the testimonies of Jesus that with tear-filled eyes, they responded with choosing Life! We led them in a prayer of salvation and Pastor Pablo asked if I would lay hands on and pray for them. God touched them mightily and their countenances were lighter and brighter.

Marissa (left), Pastor Elsa, Maria, Ana (our host), and Augustine. Marissa, Maria, and Augustine gave their lives to Jesus!

In this time, Holy Spirit reminded me of a message my Husband sent me the prior morning from our cousin. She had been praying for the team and Holy Spirit showed her a picture of me running with fire, coming up to an older bald man with glasses, embracing him, and transferring the fire to him. Suddenly I realized sitting before me was that very man He had shown her. Being filled with fire, my spirit began burning to share this word with Augustine, who had just given his life to the Lord. God knew his time had come and He had a special message and impartation of commission for this new son!
Expect the unexpected! 

As I shared the vision with Augustine, I began to see how he connected with much of what God had revealed to me in the past seven years of going to Spain. He became flabbergasted and Holy Spirit downloaded to me His prophetic decree to His son. I began to prophesy God’s design for Augustine, that he was to take hold of the torch and blaze a trail across all of Spain. I saw Jesus come behind him and pour out a bucket of liquid fire upon him and everywhere he ran, wildfires raged across the land. He had searched the land for a Spaniard who would say, “yes!” to the call, and had been declined many times. His hand was extended, in high hopes that this son would take hold of Him and answer the call. The look of shock grew on Augustine’s face as tears welled up in his eyes; and he responded with, “I don’t think I’m strong enough for that.” The beauty of it all is that we aren’t meant to be able to! It is not by might, nor by power, but by the Spirit of God dwelling within us, that we are empowered to fulfill our destiny and set the world ablaze for the Glory of God! He then responded with a joy-filled “yes!”, stood up and embraced me. We then laid hands him, prayed for him, imparted the fire of God, and commissioned him to set his nation on fire! He left a completely different person than when he had entered! Praise the Lord!!!

I would like to propose to you a simple principle, an often forgotten lost relic of the evangelical life…the marriage of the Simple Gospel and the Word of our Testimony.  It is by these two things that we overcome the kingdom of darkness and establish the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth. The utter power of the Simple Gospel to break the bonds of wickedness, loose the yoke of oppression, heal all afflictions and diseases, fling wide the prison doors, and set the captives free will never diminish or fade. It will never decrease in effectiveness or cease to produce Kingdom developing results. However, when partnered with the Word of our Testimony, all deception from the enemy is crushed and obliterated; for no one can deny your testimony!

We are called to be martyrs, faithful witnesses of what we have seen and known to be true!

THIS is what I have seen and know to be true: Jesus came, He died MY death upon the cross to purchase me and pay my eternal debt that could not be paid, His body was broken to purchase my healing and deliverance. He rose again victoriously conquering all the powers of hell and setting me free to be one with Him. He is seated at the right hand of the Father ever interceding for me; and He has given me all power and authority under Heaven to do as He did, and even more. He sent His Holy Spirit to abide within me to be my guide, comforter, healer, friend, breath, life, power, and freedom.

Acts 1:8 (TPT)
“‘But I promise you this—the Holy Spirit will come upon you and you will be filled with power (you will be seized with power). And you will be My messengers (witnesses, martyrs) to Jerusalem, throughout Judea, the distant provinces—even to the remotest places on earth!'”

Because of all of these things, I am healed of four “life-long, incurable” afflictions, I hold in my arms two beautiful children because of that healing, I am married to a wonderful and fiery man who every day is becoming more and more a reflection of the One Who holds my heart. I am forgiven, free, bold, unashamed, undignified, a Burning One set on seeing the desire of Jesus’ heart made manifest among the nations…that they would be set ablaze for His coming!!! I get to partner with Jesus in fulfilling His mission through this Great CO-Mission! I get to go into all the world to see Him do for others what He has done for me!

When we testify of what Jesus has done, we create an atmosphere for Him to come do it again! It is simple. It is Holy. It is powerful. It is the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth. All of Heaven for all of eternity testifies of Jesus, the Worthy Lamb Who was slain before the foundations of the earth, of His holiness. So I say to you, let’s join with Heaven and do the same!

Revelation 12:11 (TPT)
“They conquered him completely 
through the blood of the Lamb and the powerful word of his testimony. They triumphed because they did not love and cling to their own lives, even when faced with death.”

I will be sharing in the next post or two, about the rest of my journey in Spain; but until then…

Fuego de Dios esté sobre vosotros para testificar!!! (Fire of God be upon you to testify!!!)

Simple Obedience Changes History

Currently, I am in preparation to go out for another full day of ministry. I am sitting outside taking in the gentle breeze, carrying with it the refreshing power of Holy Spirit. Our schedules here are mostly packed full morning to one o’clock in the morning the next day, for the Spanish culture naturally goes late into the evening. I am so glad to be surrounded again in the culture of community and relationship.

As I sit here, I find myself dwelling upon all that God has already revealed and done during our time here; pondering on the heaviness of His Spirit’s Presence the last three days. Three nights ago, we attended a prayer meeting at Pastor Abel’s church in Elche in preparation for Operation Andrew, the outreach plan set in place the last time the team visited. The goal of the operation is to bring the churches here together and the members locating lost people that they know, and they began praying for their salvation after last visit. This trip’s focus will be on going out and preaching the Gospel to these lost ones and we believe that after the almost nine months of sowing prayers into their salvation, that we will see an abundant harvest come forth.

As we worshipped, prayed and interceded, the Presence of God invaded mightily. We all got up and shared words the Lord had given us for what He was preparing to do and it was obvious that God is doing a new thing, raising up a mighty army in this land. I shared the words the Lord had given Jeremiah and I when we last came in 2014, found in The Mighty Wind and the Dry Bones, as well as the word the Lord gave me in September of last year, and the word He gave me in prayer for this trip, of which I shared here To Spain for the Glory of His Name. The power of God fell in great proportion and the place was electric with expectation for a great outpouring of Holy Spirit to fall upon the land and people.

The following morning, an unusually strong wind came through that was so powerful and everyone everywhere were saying that winds like this have not been seen before and it was strange. The winds of the Spirit came sweeping in through the land, carrying upon it the Word and power of the Lord. That evening, we hosted the pastor’s rally where we gathered the pastors we will partner with to carry out Operation Andrew. There was an incredibly overwhelming heaviness of the kabod Presence of God manifesting in the atmosphere as we worshipped together.

img_4290.jpg

One evident thing is the majority of the churched people we are encountering are all foreigners. Various Latin American, European, African, Russian, and Chinese families were called from the Lord to come live here, plant churches, and minister to the Spanish people. Spain sowed the Gospel into the nations long ago, and though it has predominantly lost it’s first love, the fruit of it’s labor is returning.

Yesterday, my partner in crime this week, John and I paired with our host Pastors that we will be partnering with throughout the week. We travelled to Torrevieja, a small city south of where we are in Elche, and ministered in their church. I gave the prophetic word that the Lord had given me for Spain and had shared two evenings prior at Pastor Abel’s church. John preached on the importance of the Gospel being the main thing and the reason for which we do all things. We must not be selfish and keep this Good News of salvation to ourselves but must be intentional everywhere we go to share it and give it out!

Afterwards, we were had a few hours to kill before we went to our lunch appointment at one of the church member’s house; so Pastor Elsa took us to the Marina to show us around. The place was filled with tourists and internationals on holiday. I felt impressed upon by the Lord to keep an eye out for treasures hidden in plain sight, people to minister to. I noticed a number of people with crutches and a wheelchair bound person missing an arm. Then an elderly gentleman passed by me who was limping severely and made eye contact with me. I knew he was the one I was to speak to so I turned around to follow him and stop him to talk to him. It wasn’t until then that I realized his right leg was about six inches shorter than his left, and that was why he was walking strangely. I stopped him and asked if he spoke English, but he spoke Spanish; so in my best ability, of which might equate to a three year old, I asked him in Spanish if I could pray for Jesus to heal him, for I had noticed he was walking with a limp. He couldn’t quite understand me, so I motioned my friends over and using Elsa’s phone for translation, typed in what I tried to say so that she could communicate to him. He immediately turned us down and said that God can’t heal his leg. She explained God’s healing power yet he refused. In one last attempt I said that I have seen Jesus heal people and grow their leg out many different times when praying for them. He still refused and did not want prayer either, saying he was fine with his leg and content; so we blessed him in Jesus’ name and went on, praying for his healing on our own.

This was not a failed attempt, sometimes people don’t want Jesus no matter what you do, so you do as Jesus said: shake the dust from your feet and go on. We prayed for him anyway, for nothing can stop us from doing so and the obedience will be rewarded.

We went from there to our lunch appointment at Ilse and Edison’s. They’re Columbian and he was a top chef there so we were blessed with a well-rounded meal of steak, eggplant, potatoes, salad, and paella, a rice dish with fishtail, clams, and mussels. That’s what you call suffering for Jesus, though I had to pray for help eating the ocean life since I do NOT do fish. When you live on the Mediterranean, it’s anticipated that fish will be included; just like being unexpectedly served whole fresh giant anchovies, bones and skin included…what does one do? You say a little missionary prayer, “Lord, wherever You lead me, I’ll follow; whatever You feed me, I’ll swallow.”

We spent a few hours there, then picked up Pastor Pablo and went to our first visit, Ilse’s daughter and son-in-law, Elkin, who moved here two months ago from Columbia. They were opposed to the Gospel but allowed us to come. Upon arrival, Angie answered the door in pain, holding her neck. We sat with them and I shared a picture of my family, for they had two little ones Azariah and Elam’s age. They said we could share with them, so John began to present the Gospel through the tool we are using here, the Evangecube. After doing so, we asked them if they would like to receive Jesus and have eternal life with Him in Heaven and they both accepted Jesus there on the spot!

We prayed and I asked Angie about her neck. She had a pulled muscle and couldn’t turn her head, in a lot of pain. I asked her if I could pray for her for Jesus to heal her neck; just as she took away our sins when He died on the cross, so he took away our sickness and pain and bore it on the cross. She said, “yes”‘ and after praying, half the pain was gone and she had more mobility. I asked if I could pray for her again, for even Jesus prayed for someone more than once before they received total healing; she agreed. Pastor Pablo interjected and asked to share a testimony. He said he had come in with back pain and as I was praying, he felt a hand reach forth and grab the pain out of his back and he was completely healed! God used it to increase faith in the room and Angie said as I prayed for her again, she felt heat where my hand was. She then had almost full range of motion and the pain was nearly gone!!! Praise the Lord!

I ask that you be in prayer with us for this family that God provide work for Elkin, as they have one month left before their visa expires to find work, or they will have to return to Columbia. Also, please pray that the Lord would continue to minister to them, grow them, place them well in the Body of Christ here, and that they would develop hunger for Him, His Word, and discovering their roles in the Family of Christ.

Please pray for us as well, as we go out today for two more visits, that hearts would be receptive, fertile soil for the Gospel to be planted; and for any more a god-appointments along the way.

Be encouraged dear brothers and sisters, there is nothing special about us. We are simple people being simply obedient to simply Go as He said, and to share the simple Gospel! You can do this wherever you are, simply ask Him to give you His eyes, heart, and Word and be intentional to step outside of your comforts and Go! Be so bold as to ask Him to make you uncomfortable!

“The wicked flee when no one pursues them, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.”

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!”

The Victorious Tears of a Three-Year-Old

Last night was the premiere of the new film, Unplanned, which is a true story about Abby Johnson, the youngest clinic director of Planned Parenthood; and her life-changing experience in partaking in the abortion of a 13 week-old baby that set her on a course of exposing the deception and lies of abortion unto warring for Life! This movie I believe, will set a course shift in our nation and the nations of the world where abortion is concerned. No longer will the enemy be able to hide under false pretenses as he continuously murders God’s Little Ones!!! He WILL be and IS being exposed, just as Haman was; and he WILL be hanged for it as was Haman. Our Just God will not sit idly by and allow His babies to perish under the death decree of ’73!

This is just the beginning. 46 YEARS IS ENOUGH! 61 MILLION BABIES IS TOO MANY!!! God is raising up His Esther’s and Mordecai’s of this day to overthrow the power of darkness through warfare, fasting, prayer, and relentless pursuit of Justice! THE TIME TO REVERSE HAMAN’S CURSE IS UPON US!

This morning as I set out on errands with my boys, I was reminded while driving that I discovered recently of a Planned Parenthood DIRECTLY BEHIND the hospital my boys were born at! Right next to a hospital that brings forth life, the devil set up his camp to destroy life! HOW DARE HE?!?!!!

I had been unable to until today drive by there and pray. To be honest, I have never gone nor had the opportunity to go to a clinic to pray; only while in passing in other regions and states, and from wherever I was at the time. I felt a strong urging to bypass our turn to the store and to drive to the clinic. My oldest, Azariah, stated that the way we headed wasn’t the way to the store. I replied that we were going to go to a place to pray first. He inquired of what kind of place and why.

I will say that we have been a bit sensitive in our conversations about abortion in front our boys; for how do you explain to a three and two year-old that there are places out in the world that people go to have their babies killed??? How can the minds of young ones so close in age to unborn babies fathom that reality? It is hard enough explaining tragedy and death to them in our world prayers. How can you expect them to understand?….they don’t. Such should the response of the entire world be, unto action to see an end to the scourges of senseless death.

This time I chose not to withhold the truth. The reality is, much of the world, our nation and the Body of Christ included, continues on this path of destruction due to lack of knowledge and God-given revelation. I chose to be honest because part of the mandate and scroll for my life given to me in a divine Heavenly encounter almost a year ago was the scroll of His Little Ones. The mandate Jesus gave me in this encounter was to take up the scroll of His Little Ones (His unborn already aborted, those who are being aborted, and are set to be; and the fatherless ones); and to wage war on the enemy and fight for their lives; to reverse the curse of death and fatherlessness. If I choose to withhold my scroll from my children and imparting it to them, I am not fulfilling what I was sent to the earth to do; I am squandering it and joining those who wasted their life, inheritance, and who failed to advance the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. I am setting them up for failure. 

I explained to Azariah the reality of abortion, in a way that perhaps he might be able to grasp; the reality that the enemy has set up places where people go to have the babies in their tummies killed. I explained the spiritual aspect of it and that we were going there to pray for God’s babies that He would save them, have mercy on us, forgive us, and heal our land. That He would shut down the clinic and every person that would go there would be met by Jesus and someone who could help them and love them into the His Kingdom. That the Spirit of Adoption would arise and squash and destroy the spirit of death through abortion. We prayed specifically, “Jesus, we plead Your blood over our sins and the sins of our nation! God! End abortion and send Revival to America!!!”

He had questions and I answered them truthfully. He even told me we needed to go in to the doctors and tell them not to kill the babies but save them…if only it were that simple, I would storm in every clinic and declare the truth and love those moms and babies into the Kingdom!

As we drove around the curve looking for the building, I was floored to find a sidewalk lined with countless blue pinwheels; and as I gaze at the sign, I was flabbergasted to see an adoption center! Even more astounding was that it was situated DIRECTLY BESIDE the Planned Parenthood! It was an answer to prayer before we even arrived there!

I was surprised to find that there was no one praying outside of it like I know of at countless others around the nation. I felt to find a spot at the highpoint across the street that overlooked both buildings as an act of ascent and taking the high ground in warfare. I was led to play a life-altering song written for the aborted babies by Phil King and Cody Ray Lee, “Not Forgotten”.

Then we began to pray; myself and my two and three year-old baby boys.

We prayed with weeping, repentance, decrees, warfare, taking up my sword as a Gatekeeper of Righteousness and commanding the gates of hell be permanently shut over the region and the gates of Heaven permanently opened. We called forth laborers to this Harvest and the coming one, rising up in bold declaration that WE will be the answer He’s looking for; praying for each one coming in and out of the clinic to have mercy and spare His babies.

Someone has to take a stand, if not us, then who? If not now, then when? If we do not take a stand, then deliverance will come from somewhere else and I and my family will perish. We were appointed for such a time as this! (Esther 4:13-14)

An answer of the future appointed time of the closing of this clinic sits right next door!
I decree and declare as we did this morning, that when these moms come seeking a permanent solution to their temporary crisis, they will be divinely led next door to the adoption center. That the Body of Christ will arise to BE THE ANSWER these women are looking for, through adopting these babies, birth moms and dads, and fostering them into a family, the family of God! The Spirit of Adoption will arise and I have seen in the spirit last year a dual wave coming with a baby boom of all the babies saved from abortion; and of the spiritual wave of those being saved as they awaken to Jesus, the Light of Life! Truly, families will be saved!!! A modern-day Isaiah 49 is coming!

As we drove away at the end of praying and contending, Azariah asked me to play the song again. We listened to it on the way to the store, and Azariah said, “Mommy, Jesus needs to come and beat the enemy!” He gets it. We withhold nothing from them. Out of the mouth of a Mighty Warrior, he declared the victory of Christ over the enemy! Indeed, He has already overcome and holds the keys of death and the grave in His hand!

I sang forth through tears, the song and when we arrived at the store, I heard sniffles from the back seat. I turned around and was shocked to find Azariah crying. I asked why he was crying. He said, “I’m making tears come from my eyes because of the babies being killed. It makes me sad and I don’t want them to die. I listened to the song and it makes me cry because I want the babies to live. I don’t want the enemy to hurt babies. I don’t want to go in there because Elam is a baby and I don’t want the doctor to kill him. I want the babies to be our family. I want to save the babies.”

I was stunned. Through tears, I did explain to him that they wouldn’t kill Elam because he’s not a baby in mommy’s tummy and they’re safe. With that though, I had to try to explain to him why unborn babies are targeted for this act. More than anything I was shocked to see that he really did get it. We prayed again afterwards.

I end with this, may we be like Azariah.
May we be so engrossed in the Kingdom of God that we have the same mindset as he does!
May our eyes be awakened as his were, of the reality of abortion in our land!
May we be provoked to pray, take a stand, act, and be the answer to the crisis brooding over our land!
May we train up our children to fight for the cause of His children!
May we be the answer in the increase of the adoption movement to save babies and children from abortion and being orphans!
May we not hold back any longer but AWAKEN, ARISE, AND ACT!

I urge you to listen to this and be moved to action.
