What Will Reverse the Curse on America?

This week, grievous news surfaced in the nation of America that has caused a tumultuous upheaval of what has been widely accepted as a cultural norm. On Tuesday, applause filled the Senate chambers of New York as the sound of celebration reverberated in the atmosphere for the passing of the Reproductive Health Act bill, calling for legal abortion until birth; and removing capital punishment for the harm or death brought to babies pertaining to such terms. As with a great portion of America and nations around the world, I have grieved deeply over this horrendous act of disregard for the sanctity of life.

I shared more on what the Lord revealed in the immediate aftermath of this decision a few days ago in a post titled, Salvation Through a Babe. You could say that that post was part one of I’m not sure how many more to come. The Lord is continuing to download prophecies and visions pertaining to this great crisis and state of our nation.

The following morning as I sought the Lord in sorrowful prayer, I began asking Him what He has to say about the devastating news; and what He is doing in and through it all. I know without a shadow of a doubt that regardless of the atrocities taking place in my nation and across the earth, that nothing surprises Him. He knew before the foundations of the earth were created that these decisions would be made by our legislative branch. A people dredged in sin and stained with innocent blood will suffer great judgement at the hands of our Just God. He demands justice. I also know unswervingly that He is still sovereign over it all and still in control. He will allow a people to remain in sin and death only so long before He sends a deliverer to set free and redeem. I believe in His name, His character, and His promises. He promises that if we, dead in our sin would turn to Him in repentance, then He will deliver, heal, and restore us.
This is what I heard Him say:

“The shadow of darkness will last for a time but I am the One Who decides night’s end and the breaking forth of the dawn; shattering the shroud of darkness.
Is it man who determines the right to life? Was it man with Me in the beginning when I spoke light into the darkness and put a great divide among them? No, it was My Son and the Light of My Son exposes all darkness and erases it.
Was it man with Me when I breathed upon the dust and it sprang into a human being? No, the breath of My Spirit did that; and the Life of My Son saved man from eternal death.
So why do you give man so much credit? Man is simply a pawn in carrying out the eternal purpose of satan — to kill, slaughter, and annihilate. Let this be a divine wake-up call, My Bride! I am the God of Justice; I demand justice for those who are oppressed. I demand freedom for the captive. I assure you, this atrocity and injustice IS NOT beyond My control. The enemy thought he had gained the high ground by taking possession of a great gateway but he HAS NOT won the war! Look not at what is seen, but the unseen.

Surely, the blind and slumbering will be jolted awake with the severing of an arm. Drastic, unthinkable measures must take place to awaken My Bride. For I am turning around this death decree and awakening My gatekeepers, generals, and warriors to the war at hand: to take their place and perform their purpose. As awakening invades The Church, I will release holy strategy and blueprints for a divine turnaround.

My warning for you is this — it is up to you how far down the road of death and unrighteousness you go. At what point will you choose to wake up? The enemy has already devised plans like you have seen this week for many gateways to bring death and destruction. How long will you partner with him through silence and inaction? How many of My babies whom I have intricately designed for earth-shaking purposes must you allow to perish under the weight of your sin? 

If you will awaken, fall on your faces in repentance and partake in mourning as I mourn deeply for your unrighteous deeds and the innocent blood that stains your soil; then I will deliver you and not just break Haman’s curse on your land, but I will reverse the curse.

An awake and active Body will make great strides with Me. I will place orphans in families, heal and restore relationships. You will see a wave of adoption rise, in the spiritual and in the physical. Surely, kings and queens in My Kingdom will love children and families into My Kingdom. Only joy will echo forth. No more weeping and mourning, but a divine cleansing and wave of restoration. Behold, you will see a mighty outpouring shower upon you.”

America is shrouded under Haman’s curse right now. A decree was pronounced in the demonic realm declaring theft, death, and annihilation that began on January 22, 1973; 46 years ago. Over 60 million lives destroyed, voices never heard, destinies never fulfilled. This is unacceptable. We are in a time experienced by the prophet, Isaiah. Arrogant Assyria has arisen to spout deception, dissension, division, and death.

Isaiah 10:1-5 (TPT): “Woe to those who legalize injustice and write oppressive legislation! You rip away the rights of the poor and prey upon widows and orphans! What will come of you on your day of visitation when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? And what will you do then with all your great wealth? You’ll have no option but to cringe among the captives or fall among the corpses of the slain! Yet despite all this, His anger has not subsided, and His hand is poised to strike. Woe to arrogant Assyria, the rod of My anger!”

Isaiah 1:11-13 (AMP)
“’What are your multiplied sacrifices to Me [without your repentance]?’ Says the Lord. ‘I have had enough of [your] burnt offerings of rams and the fat of well-fed cattle [without your obedience]; and I take no pleasure in the blood of bulls or lambs or goats [offered without repentance]. When you come to appear before Me, who requires this of you, this trampling of My [temple] courts [by your sinful feet]? Do not bring worthless offerings again, [your] incense is repulsive to Me; [your] New Moon and Sabbath [observances], the calling of assemblies—I cannot endure wickedness [your sin, your injustice, your wrongdoing] and [the squalor of] the festive assembly.’

The Lord is exposing falsehood within His Bride. Every ounce of deception brooding and permeating His Bride is being exposed. He is reaching in, ripping open the heart of His Bride and revealing hidden sinful ambitions, inaction promoted by fear and apathy, false humility, disobedience [whether direct or slow obedience], selfish pride, and pious deceit.

The simple fact that the murder of His Little Ones has been allowed to continue for 46 YEARS reveals the overall state of The Church. If His Bride had stepped out and responded in deep repentance and fear and trembling of the Lord, this unacceptable injustice would have met it’s end decades ago. He cannot stand the wickedness and He has had enough! “Outward sacrifices are empty if there is no inward reality.”

Isaiah 1:15-17 (TPT)
“When you stretch out your hands to pray, I will hide My eyes from you. Repeat your prayers all you want, but I will not listen, for your hands are stained with innocent blood. Wash yourselves and make yourselves clean. Remove your evil actions from My sight and stop sinning! Learn what it means to do what is good by seeking righteousness and justice! Rescue the oppressed. Uphold the rights of the fatherless and defend the widow’s cause.

This is the Wake-up call for the nation of America and the Bride of Christ. You cannot outrun the consequences of unrighteous filth; the only response is to face them head on and face the Only One Who can deliver, heal, and restore!

Isaiah 1:18-20 (TPT)
“‘Come now and let’s deliberate over the next steps to take together.’ Yahweh promises you over and over: ‘Though your sins stain you like scarlet, I will whiten them like bright, new-fallen snow! Even though they are deep red like crimson, they will be made white like wool!’ If you have a willing heart to let Me help you, and if you will obey Me, you will feast on the blessings of an abundant harvest. But if you are stubborn and refuse to obey, the Sword will eat you instead. The mouth of Yahweh has spoken.”

V. 21-23 (NLT)
“See how Jerusalem, once so faithful, has become a prostitute. Once the home of justice and righteousness, she is now filled with murderers. Once like pure silver, you have become like worthless slag. Once so pure, you are now like watered-down wine. Your leaders are rebels, the companions of thieves. All of them love bribes and demand payoffs, but they refuse to defend the cause of orphans or fight for the rights of widows.

I heard it said once, “To a people without mixture, He will pour out His Spirit without measure.” I fully understand now what the Lord meant when speaking that. It is time to pick which side eternity we will stand upon. Heaven defends the cause of the fatherless and helpless. In fact, the King of Glory, Jesus, the Mighty Warrior defended this cause unto death, death on a cross. He shed His blood as the final atonement, that there be no more shedding of innocent blood.

V. 24-25 (NLT)
“Therefore, the Lord, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the Mighty One of Israel, says, ‘I will take revenge on My enemies and pay back My foes! I will raise My fist against you. I will melt you down and skim off your slag. I will remove all your impurities.'”

THE TIME IS NOW TO DECLARE WAR ON INACTION! CHOOSE LIFE!!! RECOGNIZE OUR DIRE NEED OF HIM AND HIS DELIVERANCE, SEEK HIS FACE ON OUR FACE!!! IF we will obey Him and take Him at His Word, then we will see a Divine Restoration of the irreparable damage taken place in our land.

V. 26-27 (TPT)
“‘I will restore deliverers as in former times and your wise counselors as at the beginning.” Only then will you be called the Righteous City and the Faithful City!’ Yes, Zion will be redeemed with justice and her repentant converts with righteousness.”

James 1:27 (AMP)
“Pure and unblemished religion [as it is expressed in outward acts] in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit and look after the fatherless and the widows in their distress, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the [secular] world.”

Let this be the prayer from the depths of our souls, oh God:

JESUS, I PLEAD YOUR BLOOD OVER MY SINS AND THE SINS OF MY NATION. GOD, END ABORTION AND SEND REVIVAL TO AMERICA!!!

TAKE ACTION: JOIN THE MOVEMENT TO END ABORTION. SIGN THE PETITION. SPREAD THE WORD. BE THE CHANGE AGENT HE WANTS TO USE IN THE EARTH. FOSTER FAMILIES INTO THE KINGDOM. FOSTER CHILDREN. ADOPT. DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY IN OBEDIENCE.

SIGN THE PETITION: THE MORAL OUTCRY

A Harvest You Didn’t Plant

On Saturday morning while enjoying my quiet time with the Lord in prayer and worship, I opened my Bible and when I looked at where it opened to, I heard the voice of the Lord pronounce something so clearly. Open in my Bible was Galatians 6 and the title of that section was, “We Harvest What We Plant.” As I read it, the Lord declared in a booming voice in the room, “YOU WILL HARVEST WHAT YOU DIDN’T PLANT.” 

I began to inquire of the Lord His meaning in that statement. I am not a foreigner to the understanding of sowing and reaping. I am also not one to think it odd that He would make such a bold statement contrary to what Paul wrote when writing his letter to the Galatians, for He is the One Who does all things impossible and beyond our comprehension. I am even further not surprised that He spoke this because He has over the past few months sporadically stated and revealed the same thing, in varying ways; whether through words or visions. As I sought Him, He spoke the following:

“NOW is the time that you will step into the new and the unheard of! NOW is the time that you will step into a new harvest! NOW is the time that you will harvest what you didn’t plant! NOW is the time that the natural order of things no longer is the only way; for I am making a new way! A harvest has sprung up that you didn’t plant in a land that has been sown into before you. It is a land that you didn’t know was even yours as an inheritance.”

As I read the first section of chapter 6 in Galatians, I sensed what the Lord was hinting at in His “NOW Word”. He was drawing emphasis to verse 9 and I have shared a few versions below to expand your understanding before I expound upon my revelation:

Galatians 6:9
(AMP) Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.”
(TPT) And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!”
(MSG) “So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit.”

When I began to really study the verse, I discovered some very key things to know and understand, to really get what the Lord said to me. I know that there are many who feel like they have been through the ringer, through the fire, through the storm; and for some, may even feel as if they have been battered and beaten in the process…perhaps, even too broken to recover. I’m going to break down this verse before I share a deeper word.

The verse in the Greek would read, “And [in] well doing not we should grow weary in time for due we will reap a harvest not giving up.” The phrase “we should grow weary” is derived from two words meaning “to be faint or weary, in heart.” They denote “losing heart, or being negatively influenced with the outcome of experiencing inner weariness.” 

One of the most important parts of this verse I believe, is the next phrase, “in time.” The word for this is “KAIROS”, meaning “fitting season, the right moment, favorable moment, opportune time, opportunity.” It comes from the word, “kara”, which means “head.” This is saying that things are “COMING TO A HEAD”, or to “take full advantage of.” 

The word “due” means “one’s own, property.” “We will reap a harvest” is referring to “receiving a reward for well-doing.” The word “not” is like an “if, then” conditional statement. The last part, “giving up” means “to let go, unloose, release.”

In this revelation of verse 9, I believe that in this hour God is saying, “Do not allow yourselves to become swayed by the circumstances surrounding you, nor identify with them. Do not allow heartsickness to cause you to relinquish what has been designated as your own inheritance, for NOW THINGS ARE COMING TO A HEAD! It is time to take full advantage of the favor of My face, the open doors set before you, of the season of outpouring I have ordained for you. DO NOT under any circumstance, let go of My promises, for they WILL always come to pass, bearing fruit. IF you do not turn away from Me, THEN I will pour out double the recompense for your troubles, double the blessing for your obedience and steadfastness, AND I will bless you beyond your wildest dreams. DO NOT MISS THIS MOMENT! SEIZE IT WITH ALL OF YOUR BEING!”

Beloved, NOW IS THE TIME to not let go! NOW IS THE TIME to take hold of what is AT HAND! DO NOT LET the enemy of your souls win and steal your destiny from you!!!

I read a post this morning on Facebook about the wondrous works of God when we do not give up; and I saw a comment from a woman that brought deep sorrow in my spirit for the body of Christ in the face of adversity. She said that ‘she just didn’t have it in her and couldn’t do it anymore, that she had been through too much to keep going.’ She had given up. The enemy has arisen in this hour to throw out every punch, jab, throw, and weapon in his desperate attempt to thwart the destinies of God over His Bride; and it infuriates me. It infuriates me that he has violated, assaulted, and silenced the children of God to the point of defeat.
Jesus said in Matthew 10:7-8, (TPT) And as you go, preach this message: ‘Heaven’s Kingdom realm IS ACCESSIBLE, CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH.’ You must CONTINUALLY bring healing to lepers and to those who are sick, and MAKE IT YOUR HABIT to BREAK OFF the demonic presence from people, and raise the dead back to life. FREELY YOU HAVE RECEIVED the power of the Kingdom, SO FREELY RELEASE it to others.” 

THIS is what we were made for! The only way that we don’t have Kingdom authority and power, Heaven’s backing, angelic assistance, and victory is if we set our focus on defeat and give it up. I feel the stern warning of the Father saying, “DO NOT relinquish this call! If you do, you become another destiny snuffed out by the enemy. This goes beyond you! If you give up, you have not only relinquished YOUR destiny, but you have aided in the enemy’s stake at the souls from your intended harvest, as well as others’. He doesn’t just win with taking you out, but he will not stop until he takes out your harvest! DO NOT QUIT!!!”

FATHER, MAY WE CHOOSE TO SET OUR FOCUS ON YOU, JESUS! The storms of this life amount to nothing when our eyes are fixed on You, the Author and the Finisher of our Faith! It is then that we will fulfill ALL that You have destined and created us for! It is then that we will see the world ignited with Burning Ones, set ablaze with the Undaunted Ones, and see the fullness of the reward of Your suffering returned to You, Jesus!

Hebrews 12:1-3 (SMG)
“Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means WE’D BETTER GET ON WITH IT. Strip down, start running—and NEVER QUIT! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS, Who both began and finished this race we’re in. STUDY HOW He did it. Because HE NEVER LOST SIGHT OF WHERE HE WAS HEADED—that exhilarating finish in and with God—He could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now He’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility He plowed through. THAT will shoot adrenaline into your souls!”

Now, I bring things full circle to the original Word of the Lord at the beginning of this post. When we truly grasp these truths above, that WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS and that WE DO POSSESS EVERYTHING WE NEED TO FULFILL OUR DESTINY AS WE SEEK HIM IN THE SECRET PLACE; we are able to gather in the harvest of our own labors, AND ALSO the harvest of souls born from the toils of the pioneers gone before you!

John 4:37-38
(MSG) “The Harvester isn’t waiting. He’s taking His pay, gathering in this grain that’s ripe for eternal life. Now the Sower is arm in arm with the Harvester, triumphant. That’s the truth of the saying, ‘This one sows, that one harvests.’ I sent you to harvest a field you never worked. Without lifting a finger, you have walked in on a field worked long and hard by others.”
(TPT) And this confirms the saying, ‘One sows the seed and another reaps the harvest.’ I have sent you out to harvest a field that you haven’t planted, where many others have labored long and hard before you. And now you are privileged to profit from their labors and reap the harvest.”

So What About That Red Wave?

Yesterday was a remarkable day in the nation of America. For many in the Body of Christ, they’re grieving over the exchange that took place as the Democrats gained control of the House. We have seen many prophetic voices in the streams prophesy recently a “red wave” or a “red tsunami”, alluding that in these mid-term elections the Republicans would gain control across the board. I have read and listened to many trusted voices and I believe that much of what was to take place was contingent on the Bride of Christ rising up in prayer, action, and support of Kingdom of Heaven living. Now today, not to my surprise since nothing is new under the sun, these obedient prophetic voices are under attack and being labeled as false prophets, and the enemy is causing the religious, offensible ones to go on a senseless rampage.

I am not saying that sometimes we prophets get it a bit off or might even get it completely off for a number of reasons. Let’s be real, we are all still human and if I learned anything from discussing this with my Husband this morning, it would be that when God reveals prophecy, we must also be careful to deliver the straight up Word or vision in obedience and not allow our interpretations of it shift or sway the details. When God reveals something, it could be easy to interpret a detail through what makes sense to us. Let’s not get all up in arms condemning and crucifying those who spoke out what they believe God revealed to them; whether they heard and share correctly or were off. Rather, let’s encourage them as they, themselves will be dealing with the fall out of last night’s results.

I also say this because I, myself, learned this in the past two days. In prayer yesterday morning over the elections, I received part of the Word that I will share below, but struggled the entire time with seeing in part, the vision being foggy, distractions, and interruptions from my now early bird toddlers (thanks daylight savings…) I tried again to get clarity and revelation in the afternoon thinking that because of the subject of the Word, that I needed a complete Word to share before the day was through or it could be irrelevant. I was unsuccessful, except for a slight addition. Seeing the majority of the results last night, I was a bit discouraged because I, too, heard the Lord say that there would be a “red wave” result; and had been hearing that and prophesying it in prayer for weeks.

This morning I decided to sit down and seek the Lord for understanding and fullness of revelation, and I finally got it. What I realized through the Word, was that I did indeed hear clearly from the Lord, however, I had been interpreting the details based on my own analysis and wisdom instead of seeing from the Lord’s eyes and possessing His full knowledge. He confirmed what He intended with the Word below:

“A wave is rising to bring a tide of change in the atmosphere of transference. A divine transference of mantles are taking place in the spirit realm even now. For many, I have already gone ahead and anointed them to take their place, as with David. In the days to come, the unrighteous, the ones My Spirit has departed from, will surely come to a revelation that their seat of power has been plucked from their hands, as did Saul. Surely, there will be many unexpected changes take place that were thought impossible. For behold, many will say, “I can’t believe this is happening! I was a shoo-in!” Because My children have stepped up out of their caves of hiding and apathy, have taken their rightful places as My Kingdom ambassadors and advancers, I have dispatched angels on assignment to disrupt the influence of the enemy and even run off those who would oppose My divine plan. Look out and see upon the horizon, the red wave rising in increasing proportions, signifying the new wave of revival being birthed on the heels of the blood of the Lamb being poured out upon the nation of America – washing away sin and making atonement for the shedding of innocent blood. The tables have turned for you, America! Begun, the transformation has.”

While, the Lord was speaking this Word, I was taken into an open vision. In this vision, I walked up to a set of double doors where the Senate and House of Representatives meet. Just then, an angel with the appearance of a man stood next to me. He was dressed in a white robe with brown hair and had a young face. I knew in my spirit that he was an angel of justice. He said to me, “come on!”, and he opened the doors and we entered through them. Before me was the meeting place of Congress. We walked down to the front of the room where there is a pathway of separation from the seats up front as well as seats all around and behind us. Standing in the empty room, I looked up at the seats in the front of us and began to see certain seats highlighted as if they were lit up like a lightbulb. I began to glance around the room and saw spread out all around the room, seats lit up. I looked at the angel of justice who had not said anything at this point and asked, “what does all of this mean?” I heard a booming voice in the room say, “32.” I asked him what it meant, for I didn’t understand. He said, “32 seats of change. 32 chances for transference.”

Just then, I saw a giant set of scales descend down upon us and take its place before us. I inquired of what was before me. The angel said, “the scales of justice are taking their place. They will weigh every single member – yes, every single judge of your nation will be weighed on this scale of righteousness. For every one that does not measure up to My standard of righteousness, they will be given either the chance to turn away from their wickedness and corrupt opposition and turn to Me or they will be deposed.” I looked and on the top of the scale was an eye that searched into the depths of each and determined whether they were fit to govern or if they were possessed by darkness as their influence.

“Take a look and be ensured that the Word of the Lord will not fall void and fruitless, but WILL accomplish all it was sent forth to. Surely, a red tsunami WILL come, just not in the way that many anticipated. In the next two years, you will see the repercussions of this scale take effect; for the opposition has been heavy and intense, but I am more powerful than any enemy and I WILL have My way! I decree and declare that in the days ahead, what looked like a major victory of the enemy will prove to have only increased the activity of angels on assignment. Investigations will come against the very ones who wish to investigate My chosen one. Fraud will be exposed. Deception will be revealed. The seedpods of corruption and darkness will not be planted in the soils of your governing bodies. They will not take root, but will each be unearthed and cast into the fire.

“I tell you now, as divine judgement takes place in the courts of America, you will find even the transference of seats take place in ways and methods not seen in decades. Even of those newly elected ones, some will be cast out because of the revealing of dark secrets expected to remain concealed. Surely, no one is safe! Young and old, alike, all will be judged! You will hear many say, “how can this be? Surely, this isn’t true!” The shock that takes place will be on a large-scale as if an earthquake just struck the courts of America. Indeed, corrupt, corroded structures established on unsteady soil will crumble! None will be able to withstand the shaking! Only those with firm foundations established on righteousness will be able to withstand not only the initial quake, but also the aftershocks!”

As he said this, I saw the shores of a coast and saw the waters begin to recede into the heart of the sea; exposing bare the seabed beneath and everything that was once hidden is now seen clearly. I knew in my spirit that this was the recession of the sea in preparation for and preceding the massive waves of a tsunami. I then heard the Lord say, “The time is now for recession unto succession.”

Isaiah 51:4-5 (AMP)
“Listen carefully to Me [says the Lord], o My people, and hear Me, o My nation; for a [divine] law will go forth from Me, and I will quickly establish My justice as a light to the peoples. My righteousness (justice) is near, My salvation has gone forth, and My arms will judge the peoples; the islands and coastlands will wait for Me, and they will wait with hope and confident expectation for My arm.”

Beloved, we must not be swayed to and fro by what we see with our eyes, for we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises] (2 Corinthians 5:7 AMP). Even if the elections did not go the way many thought, wanted, or hoped, God is still sovereign over it all and has not given up on America because of a party change. “So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; it will not return to Me void (useless, without result), without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11 AMP). It is time to press on, press forward, seek His face, and seek to carry out Kingdom Advancement!

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.”

Keep it Simple (Southeast Asia)

Ministering in the schools

One class of students who gave their lives to Jesus while ministering in the schools.

Life is not as complicated as we make it out to be, but we make it hard by knowing too much. We think we must gather all the information, weigh all the options, and then make an informed decision. This takes too long and is more complicated than necessary. Faith is trusting that God knows best and His promises will come about no matter what the situation. 

It is so simple what we have been doing here in Southeast Asia. We have been partnered with a pastor and translator. In the morning, they come and get us, then we go out all day. There are always plans, but it is almost not worth asking what we are going to do because these plans are ever changing. There is a beauty and an adventure in not knowing where you are going or what you will be doing. Your only focus is to trust that God will give you whatever you need when you get to that situation.

Before coming here, God gave me a message to speak whenever I was asked. The first two opportunities to speak, God did not let me share this message, but changed what I was to share at the last minute. I still do not know how many opportunities I will have to share, but I trust God will give me what I need at exactly the right time.

Originally, we were supposed to be doing home visits with the friends and family of the people in the church. Until last night, I had done none. My pastor wanted to immediately go out and do street evangelism. This is definitely not my gift as I shared before. However, God has given me the grace to share in markets, bus stations, schools and more.

Yesterday, God opened the door for me to begin praying for the sick and apparently that is what He wanted to do. I laid hands on the sick and prayed for more than 20 different people, several getting a least a measure of healing immediately. God even opened the door for me to pray over a young man oppressed by the devil for 13 years. On the way there, they said we were going to pray for a sick boy because that is all they knew before we got there. God worked in a mighty way in each situation.

This young man was set free from 13 years of demonic oppression and began receiving healing and restoration. 

My encouragement for you today is keep it simple. Don’t make life difficult! The salvation, healing, and deliverance we are seeing in a mighty way here can and will happen right where you are if you keep it simple.  Here, are two steps straight from the Word to help you walk a simple life and do great things.

1. Know God!!!

Daniel 11:32 …the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. 

The more you come to know God, the stronger He will make you. Also, He will give you everything you need to do great things.

2. Open your mouth!!!

Psalm 81:10 I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt; open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. 

The word of God coming forth from your mouth changes things. If I spent all day seeking God and then went and stood at the market, nothing would happen. God needs you to open your mouth and speak forth His word. The promise is that He will give you what you need to say as you know him and open your mouth.

I bless you today with the ability to keep it simple. May you come to know God more and open your mouth to share about this great God you love and serve.

Call to Go (Southeast Asia)

IMG_3013

I remember now why I do not take showers in the morning in Asia. The bone-chilling cold water should be reserved for after sweating all day in the heat. However, I am truly awake now as I write this.  This is just one of the few things when God has called us to go, we must give up to say yes.

Your will, your way, your wants and desires are always difficult to give up. “I want it my way.” You may not ever say it out loud, but this is the way you are. I know this, because this is the way I am.  Graciously, the Lord granted me several confirmations that this was a trip I was supposed to be on. I do not often get such clear direction and continually receive confirmation I am supposed to go. I usually just give Him my Yes out of faith.

After the 30+ hours of travel, I can say thank the Lord for giving me the ability to say Yes. Sitting on a plane for any extended amount of time is physically uncomfortable, to put it mildly. However, for me, it has always been hard to sleep so it becomes that much more difficult. But none of this matters because I have said Yes to Jesus and His call for me to go. Unfamiliar places, faces, food, accommodations… None of this really matters for I have given my whole-hearted Yes to Jesus and His way.  

The people here are worth it because He loves them. Even more than that, He is worth it and I love Him!!! Right now, in your life, what is of the greatest value? What do you love the most? What would you hold on to if everything else was stripped away? What if God called you to give that up to Go for Him?  Could you do it? 

My prayer for you is that you hear the call of the Lord to Go and that you say as Isaiah did, “Here I am, send Me!!! No matter the cost, no matter the price I will follow You and say Yes!!!” Jesus is worth flying to the other side of the world and giving up so much! In the same way, He is worth it to lay down your fear, pride, selfishness, to walk next door, up the street, down the fruit aisle… Or wherever else He may have you. He is worth it to give all that You have to speak His good news!!! He gave first, and He gave His best for you.

What do you have to give the Creator of the Universe??? 

I give You my, Yes and my obedience!!! Here I am!!! Send Me!!!

Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
