Detroit – There’s Healing Glory in the Cleansing

This morning I heard the Lord saying in my time with Him, “Come a little closer, My dear. Draw a little nearer, higher up the mountain with Me; for there are some secrets I want to show you.”

I was then caught up in the spirit and taken to a drug house where there was a couple who were high on drugs with an infant. Something happened and the man picked up a box and began filling it with drugs and needles as the woman sat behind him with her baby in her arms. He handed the box to me and they, though still being high, gave me all that they had for they had a new reason for life.

Suddenly, I found myself standing in the clouds overlooking a large river that ran through Detroit with a large bridge crossing it. Then an angel joined me to stand on my right and I asked what this was. He said, “watch and see!” I looked to the river that was filthy as darkness blanketed the city. Just then, a bright and explosive light occurred in the dark clouds and a massive angel the height of a skyscraper entered into our realm from Heaven clothed in golden light. He shot down and landed on the bridge entrance, where he then drew his sword and thrusted into the bridge all the way through into the river. A mighty shaking took place and a golden glory shot through his sword into the river. I could see demons that had been bringing in the opioids stopped dead in their tracks on the bridge, unable to pass through his sword.

A cracking began to take place from his sword behind him into the road and traveled through city streets and blocks until it reached the steps of a demonic temple in the center of the city. It traveled up the steps and into the temple all the way into the secret chambers where there was a fire and statues of Baal and Baphomet. The crack struck both statues and each came crumbling to the ground, and the fire was extinguished.

I was taken to the angel once again. Then a secondary shaking occurred and an explosion shot from his sword upward into the sky, where a golden portal opened with angels flooding into the city from heaven. They flocked into alleyways and in homes, destroying all drugs and began to take possession back from what was used for evil. I asked the angel next to me what I was seeing. He said, “you are seeing the crack down on what has rained here for far too long.“ I replied, “this region has such a rich heritage of revival and so many revivalist to have poured themselves out here to establish Your Kingdom, Lord.“

Suddenly, I felt a hand on my right shoulder and I turned to see Jesus standing next to me with a smile on His face. He said in response to my statement, “Yes, I love this land and I am striking the land with My divine justice. I am interrupting and disrupting the channels of access to demonic interferences and influences. What you see before you is the portal of Heaven open right on top of the enemy’s gateway access and he is being kicked out for good! I am going back to the heart in the door of access to pharmakeia and divination and they are being destroyed. No longer will I stand and watch the enemy destroy what has been planted here.
I am bringing healing to these waters from the overflow of the river in Heaven. No longer will these waters be filled with filth, for I am bringing cleansing and it shall now be called the Euphrates. You will see all these things take place in the days to come; and then a mighty outbreak will come forth of Heaven invading earth, here and forever. Mark My words, so shall it be! Declare its coming!“

Then I found myself back in my chair.

After I recorded this encounter, I began to look up Michigan and Detroit, for I know very little other than some revival history in the days of old; and I have never been to Michigan. I began to search and see if there was indeed a river that flowed through the city and was shocked to find that I indeed was taken above the city overlooking Ambassador Bridge, where I saw the angel stand upon and open Heaven’s portal. The bridge stands over the Detroit River, connecting the U.S. to Canada; and it is the busiest international border crossing in terms of trade. The river has also been one of the most polluted in the region. Blocks down from where I watched the crack travel is the world’s largest masonic temple, in the exact place I saw it stop in the encounter.

I believe what Jesus was revealing is that the opioid epidemic and the darkness affecting Detroit has been ushered in through demonic activity and witchcraft stemming from this temple. The temple was opened on February 22, 1926 (2-22). I believe there was a handing over of the keys of the Kingdom (Isaiah 22:22) to the enemy that took place in that day and a continuous spiral downward began leading Detroit to death and decay.

Where there should have been watchmen on the wall in those days and gatekeepers keeping guard of the city and that gateway, somewhere there was a failure to stand at post and protect the city from enemy invaders.

The good news is, God is alerting His gatekeepers and watchmen in this hour once more to stand at your posts, take back the keys of access, and to decree and declare that Heaven’s portal be opened over Detroit!

Join with us in prayer over Detroit, that she would become what she was always designed to be!

May every idol be cast down in Detroit, Michigan and Jesus be lifted high! May every spirit of darkness and death be destroyed and their spells broken in Jesus’ mighty name! As a gatekeeper and watchman on the wall, I take up the keys of the Kingdom and I bind every demonic access into this city and state, I lock the door permanently in Jesus’ name! I fling wide the door to Heaven and say, let Heaven come and fill this city! Let her rivers be cleansed as Jesus said, and that she now be called the Euphrates (The Good Fruitful One); and that the overflow of the River in Heaven would bring healing to her city and people as it is in Heaven!

Revelation‬ ‭22:1-5‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, flowing with water clear as crystal, continuously pouring out from the throne of God and of the Lamb. The river was flowing in the middle of the street of the city, and on either side of the river was the Tree of Life, with its twelve kinds of ripe fruit according to each month of the year. The leaves of the Tree of Life are for the healing of the nations. And every curse will be broken and no longer exist, for the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there in the city. His loving servants will serve Him; they will see constantly His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. Night will be no more. They will never need the light of the sun or a lamp, because the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign as kings forever and ever!”

Isaiah‬ ‭22:22‬ ‭(AMP‬‬)
“Then I will set on his shoulder the key of the house of David; When he opens no one will shut, When he shuts no one will open.”

Matthew‬ ‭16:19 (TPT)
“I will give you the keys of Heaven’s Kingdom realm to forbid on earth that which is forbidden in Heaven, and to release on earth that which is released in Heaven.”

If My People…

Isn’t it sad how the people of God are unaccustomed to combatting sickness with prayer because we have so quickly run to a doctor for medicine instead of “the Lord who heals”?  This is something God prompted me with this morning as I was in prayer.  I was not specifically praying against the corona flu at that time, but the mass hysteria of the land is causing all of us to contemplate the situation no matter where you may find yourself in your walk of faith.  The spirit of fear is sinking its teeth into the land and it is time for the people of God to stand up and war against this enemy of our souls.  

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

One of the pastors I listen to declares frequently “No spirit but The Holy Spirit!”  All good things come from God, and He has not given us fear or fear wrapped in a pleasing package of “wisdom”.  By The Holy Spirit we have the fullness of power, love, and a sound mind.  One can look around and see the spirit of fear causing weakness, hate, and panic to run rampant.  Man of God, Woman of God, you have the solution!!!

It grieves me so much to see all the churches closing there doors with the explanation of safety and wellbeing for their people and the public with a simple solution, you can tune in for online services.  Warriors of The Way, this should not be!!!  You can easily go to any secular concert or conference and find some of the exact same language and reason for canceling their events.  

Should the church look the same as the world?  

Is there no difference between the People of God and people of the world?  

Where have we gone wrong?

The land is sick.  Our land is sick and it needs to be healed!  This new manifestation is not the real problem, just a new symptom raising its head.  Sickness, fear, and death cannot live in a healthy state for long just as sickness cannot stay in a healthy body for long.  The warriors in the body rise up and destroy the sickness quickly unless there is some other problem in the body.  

Is there sickness in the Body of Christ?  

Is something out of order that the spirit of fear, sickness, and death is running rampant in the world and believers and non-believers alike are behaving in the same manner?  

There are the same explanations of cancelled events, with an appeasement of online service to get your weekly word/vitamin infusion, and the same panic hoarding of water, toilet paper, and food in those who call themselves believers and those who do not.  My Brothers and Sisters, this should not be!!!

If this has impassioned or incited you in any way, good.  That is the point. If we sit back and do nothing, we will prove we are irrelevant, worldly, unbelieving hypocrites that we have been accused by the world of being.  I am calling The Warriors of The Way, the True Believers to stand up and be a part of the solution!  It is time for the Warriors of The Way to destroy the enemy and bring healing not only to this recent symptom of the sickness but also to the land as a whole.  The People of God look for the solution not add to the problem.  God has given us the solution. In some scripture that every believer has read, memorized, and knows probably apart from context, the plan is laid out for God’s people. “If My people…”

Let’s look at the larger context of this one verse we know so well and apply it to us right here in our current situation:

2 Chronicles 7:12-16 Then the Lord appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.

I have placed in bold some words in the context that we should pay attention to. The people who are called by His name (that’s me) are chosen, and sanctified to be a place of sacrifice that carries the name of The Lord forever.  There should be a difference between us and the world because we carry the name of The Lord.  We are called to humble ourselves in fasting and repentance (the fullness of this revelation can be found in the fasting devotion Humble Yourself). If the people of God humble themselves, fast, repent, pray and seek the Presence of God and turn from their sins to righteousness, then…

The words and actions of God’s people speak in ways the worldly systems of man cannot!  When we come into alignment with His plan and His solution the heavens speak, forgiveness comes, and healing is able to come for the land.  This latest outbreak should draw a clear distinction between the people of God and the people of the sick land.  We should be evidenced as ones bringing healing, life, love, and soundness of mind to the current state of affairs.

This is not the first problem that will affect us, nor is it the last if our land remains sick. The leaders of God’s people must call His people to repentance, prayer, and fasting for us and our land.  They should be the ones calling the nation to a day of prayer.  The Warriors of The Way should be arising to gather and combat this latest onslaught of fear.  Churches should not be closing and going to online services with little more than explanation of government compliance and general regard for safety.  

The people of God should gather to repent, pray and seek God’s face!  If a church is going to cancel its public services, it should at least be with a call to prayer, repentance and seeking God’s face. 

Now is the time for the people of God to come together!  Warriors of The Way gather and fight the good fight of faith!!!  The President is calling for a day of prayer tomorrow March 15.  Lou Engle is calling for a 3-day Esther Fast March 18-20!  Join together in small groups of 10 or 20 if you cannot gather in larger groups.  Big groups or small, people of God come together as the chosen and sanctified people that His name is upon and let’s cry out for God to come and heal our land!!!

Precipitate The Latter Rain 11/40

You are invited to join us for the Celebrate to Accelerate fast! Please review Celebrate to Accelerate and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement

It is time once again to examine our reasons to commit to The 40.  We must constantly refresh the reason behind the fast or we will be drawn away by the enticements of the world to what may seem better. 

Why have you committed to press in to The Lord through fasting? Whatever your reason may be for going into this fast, today, I want to give you another one. 

Fasting precipitates the Latter Rain.  The former generation experienced what they refer to as the Latter Rain and there have been many prophecies about the former and latter rain coming together in these days ahead using the passage Joel 2:23.  Though this is the passage used by so many about the coming releasing of The Spirit in a mighty way, few know the context in Joel during this time.  Another passage of scriptures you may know well is Joel 2:28-32.

Joel 2:28-29 “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. 29 And also on My menservants and  on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

This may be one of the most referred to passages in the charismatic church especially since it is referenced by Peter in Acts 2:17-21 when the Holy Spirit comes upon the disciples in such a powerful way.  Again, it seems that no one knows the context of what is happening in the book of Joel preceding this.  We often overlook “minor” details that can lead us to a true revelation to how God wants to bring about what He has promised conditionally.  It is especially important to view the context because this passage starts with, me paraphrasing, these things will take place after something else happens.

 If you read the book of Joel, this is a time of tremendous devastation in the entire land of Judah.  An enormous plague of locusts had come and stripped the entire country of all vegetation.  Famine and drought as well as starvation and death of man and animals was taking place.  This was the worst possible moment in the people’s lives, and they needed a solution.  The prophet Joel came with a solution:

Joel 1:13-14 Gird yourselves and lament, you priests; Wail, you who minister before the altar; Come, lie all night in sackcloth, You who minister to my God; For the grain offering and the drink offering Are withheld from the house of your God. 14 Consecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly; Gather the elders And all the inhabitants of the land Into the house of the Lord your God, And cry out to the Lord.

The solution for this crisis is humility, repentance, prayer, and fasting.  This plague was a result of the people’s constant refusal to turn to God and follow His ways.  Therefore, He allows the effects of their disobedience to come upon them.  Turning back to Him is the only way to change their situation, and fasting is a sign of a true repentance and humbling of the heart.   In case the people did not want to take the advice of a mere prophet of God, The Lord Himself gives the solution for their problem in the very next chapter:

Joel 2:12-13 “Now, therefore,” says the Lord“Turn to Me with all your heart, With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”  13 So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the Lord your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm.

Here, God calls for repentance, fasting, and prayer.  Fasting is a true evidence of a desire to change and come into line with God and His purposes instead of partnering with our own flesh.  This is what will cause the grace and mercy of Heaven to be made evident in our lives.  This is not just a call for certain group of people like the holy priests or pastors.  Vs. 15-17 tells us that it is for:

  • People
  • The Congregation
  • Elders
  • Children
  • Babies
  • Newlyweds
  • Priests

No one is left out of this call to come to the Lord in repentance, fasting, and prayer.  No this is not a mandatory thing.  However, this is what it is referring to in Vs. 28 AFTER you come as an entire people in humility, repentance, fasting, and prayer THEN God will pour out His Spirit.  The apostles received The Holy Spirit after waiting in unity in The Upper Room for 10 days.  We know they were praying together, but I believe they were fasting as well.  The outbreak of The Spirit at Azusa was a result of 10 days of fasting and praying together. Here we are, committed to The Lord and each other for The 40.  What can God do with our hearts that come to Him in humility, repentance, fasting, and prayer? 

Jesus, I ask that you will take this simple offering of my life, my commitment to you and use it for Your Kingdom.  I desire for The Great Outpouring of The Spirit that has so often been talked about.  I come to you in humility, repentance, fasting, and prayer right now.  Come and move in a mighty way that you may receive the glory that is due Your name!!! 

Practical – 

  • Read Joel 1-2
  • Ask Holy Spirit to reveal how you can partner with Him in your personal prayer time
  • Ask Him to reveal how to call your community into humility, repentance, fasting, and prayer
  • Be obedient to all that He speaks.

Be blessed with the power to partner with Holy Spirit in precipitating the Latter Rain.  May this lifestyle accelerate The Kingdom in and through your life!!!
