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.”

Where Are the Fearless Waymakers?

PROPHETIC WORD – March 16, 2020

I heard the Lord say in prayer this morning:

“In the coming days, you will see and know a deeper release of My hand in the land. You will see a wave of life arise where the spirit of death has run rampant. Where many were in darkness feeling their way along the walls like the blind; behold, a great light will shine and shake everything. This will bring a mighty awakening of My Body and she will begin to see with My eyes and not through the eyes of fear.

To a world drowning in fear, she will be that beacon of hope and life in the midst of chaos. Suddenly, a release of heavenly blueprints for the ending of this scourge will be given to her as she seeks Me and partners with Me in this move.

She MUST NOT bow her knee to the enemy nor hunker down in fear that leads to destruction! She must rise up, push back full force against the tide, and see Heaven’s backing come through.

Just as with Elisha’s servant, may her eyes be opened to see the great army that stands at the ready to trample every foe – for greater are they that are with her than they that are against her!!!

Sound the trumpet and raise the battle cry! Watch as I scatter your enemies before you! Watch as I lay to waste that which has sought to destroy and devour!

I say to you…

Where are they who would take a bold and fearless stand against the enemy?!

Where are they who would prepare the way for the coming move of victory?!”

Psalm‬ ‭11:3-4‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
“What can the righteous accomplish when truth’s pillars are destroyed and law and order collapse? Yet the Eternal One is never shaken — He is still found in His temple of holiness, reigning as Lord and King over all. He is closely watching everything that happens. And with a glance, His eyes examine every heart. For His heavenly rule will prevail over all.”

As we see the earth shaken amidst the current demonic attack through the coronavirus, the Body of Christ is continuing to go through the sifting I shared about August 28th of last year in the post, The Great Sift for the Shift: The Call to Holiness.

God is looking for those in this hour filled with fiery faith to stare this demon of fear in the face and command that it bow its knee to Jesus, the King of Kings! He is calling forth the waymakers who refuse to bow their knee to Jezebel and her minions!

When His eyes search the earth, will He find a submitted heart and vessel in you to wage war on the enemy? Will He find a trustworthy warrior who knows the end of the story and refuses to allow the enemy to gain the upper hand? I pray for the grace, mercy, and boldness to fill you up and to partner with Him in establishing HIS KINGDOM HERE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN!

Hebrews‬ ‭10:37-39‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
For soon and very soon, “The One who is appearing will come without delay!” And He also says, “My righteous ones will live from My faith. But if fear holds them back, My soul is not content with them!” But we are certainly not those who are held back by fear and perish; we are among those who have faith and experience true life!

America: His Hand Extends

It has been a while since I have shared on here. It seems like God has Jeremiah and I in seasons where one will be receiving the bulk of words and encouragements and then He will switch it on us. Jeremiah did great with the recent 40+ posts during the Celebrate to Accelerate Fast!

These past few months have been a bit wild, a bit crazy, and full of a whole lot of change and growth. Jeremiah got a word from the Lord at the end of last year that has held true in literally every area of our lives, “Everything changes!” One of the many things He had up His sleeve for 2020 definitely was a sweet surprise…we will be having a beautiful addition to our tribe of Fiery Ones in the fall!

7C5D0298-3613-45F1-A6DD-F440A5911756

I believe that the word, “Everything changes,” is not just something that is for our family, but I believe it something He is bringing about in so many spheres, regions, and nations. There is a cataclysmic shift taking place in 2020 that will set the precedence for decades to come.

While in prayer this morning over the Presidential Primary Elections, I heard the Lord say:

My hand is not too short to save, nor is My arm too short to deliver. You will indeed to see the unexpected take place as a great wave moves across your land. I have watched the injustice continue to wreak havoc and destruction on your land and I am stepping into say, “No more!”

Through all of the trials and suffering, I have been at work even as man continues to desecrate the freedom I have marked America with. For behold, because I love America and do not desire her to perish, I, Myself, am stepping into save her. For I have looked and found no one worthy to defend and protect that which I hold dear. Because of this, I stepped in and put My hand upon her to promote and defend the cause of justice; wrapping myself in a cloak of divine passion! I stepped on the scene and have sought out a righteous remnant to carry forth My cause and to fight for true liberty. I have hand selected My chosen ones from the highways and byways, those of who many have said, “Who are these and where have they come from?”

I am extending My hand of mercy and giving a reprieve. Though the battle is not over, I am showing mercy on America and by this, will continue to expose the darkness with My glorious light! Much can be said of those who take heed of My words and do not slumber in their wake.

Let this be a wake up call to My Church – Refuse to be lulled to slumber and apathy while you are called to be change agents and rebuilders and restorers! But before you become these ones, you must first be changed, rebuilt, and restored to innocence in righteousness again!

Isaiah 59:16-19 (TPT)

“And then He was astonished to see that there was no champion, not even one, who would rescue the oppressed. So then His own mighty power was released to deliver, and His own righteousness supported Him. He put on righteousness as His body armor, salvation for a helmet; a garment of warring vengeance was His uniform and passion, his cape. He will repay wrath to His enemies and retribution to His foes, according to what they have done. Reckoning is coming to the islands for what is due them. From the west to the lands of the rising sun, the glory of the name of Yahweh will be held in highest reverence, for He will break in as a flood, rushing river driven on by the breath of Yahweh!”

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!!!

Iran–Toppling of One Kingdom & Establishment of Another

WORD FOR IRAN

January 8, 2020

“Iran, your hand is cut short. You sought to bring destruction against My favored ones but you will find that thou shall not touch My anointed ones! Where you plotted evil against the Strong Men, overplayed is your hand! You will surely fail and I will break your back, immobilizing you. You will find yourself paralyzed in a sudden, swift wave of My hand; yes, like a quadriplegic paralyzed on all sides, you will find that you have failed. I will strip you of your arsenal of evil and the earth will swallow up your tents of plotting. I will overthrow your government and increase Mine in your land, for the people have cried out for a breaker and for freedom from the oppressor. I have heard their cries and I am loosing My agents of change to blow through the land and shift what has been to what will be. It is coming and it will not be delayed!

My anger has arisen against the evil of your land but even still, I love Iran, and I will not allow you to continue your tirade of terror a moment longer. The prince of Persia could not silence My Word going forth and bringing in a great Harvest. Indeed, when he tried it only aided in furthering of My Kingdom come in Iran.

Surely, and unstoppable uprising is being birthed right under your nose that will wreak havoc on the kingdom of darkness and further advance My plan in Iran! A new day is upon you, Iran!

I am casting down every evil that raises its hand in opposition to Me. A sudden shift will strike a cataclysmic blow to your standing man and knock his feet right out from under him, crushing him and crumbling his authority. Surely, this will be a sign among the nations that what I have spoken will take place!”

As the Lord spoke this word, I was taken into a vision of a large, strongly built statue of a man. Suddenly, I saw a pair of hands appear wielding a hammer. The hands swung the hammer and struck the ankles of the statue. With one blow, the statue began to crumble and came toppling to the ground, breaking into indistinguishable, shattered pieces on the ground.

When seeking the Lord in prayer about this word and vision, He reminded me of the following passage in Daniel 2:

Daniel 2:31-35 (NLT)
“In your vision, Your Majesty, you saw standing before you a huge, shining statue of a man. It was a frightening sight. The head of the statue was made of fine gold. Its chest and arms were silver, its belly and thighs were bronze, its legs were iron, and its feet were a combination of iron and baked clay. As you watched, a rock was cut from a mountain, but not by human hands. It struck the feet of iron and clay, smashing them to bits. The whole statue was crushed into small pieces of iron, clay, bronze, silver, and gold. Then the wind blew them away without a trace, like chaff on a threshing floor. But the rock that knocked the statue down became a great mountain that covered the whole earth.”

Indonesia: The Ring of Fire

PROPHETIC WORD FOR INDONESIA – August 5, 2018

“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; bringing with it clouds of heaviness, complacency in spirit, and 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 transition is here and your bulging waters are bursting, that you may give you your final pushes.

As you enter into the final phase, do not give up or lose heart or focus, for the overflow is just on the other side of your efforts for My Kingdom!

Yes, your sacrifices will never be in vain. 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? Reach forth and take hold of your special treasure, My Beloved!”

Talitha Koum: Time for Victorious Awakening

These past five days have been foundation-shaking and exposing for the Body of Christ. On Saturday, Bethel worship leader, Kalley Heiligenthal and her husband, Andrew’s two year old daughter, Olive, suddenly stopped breathing and was pronounced dead by the doctors.

IMG_1524

Painting: Jacob Daniels

As heartbreaking as the situation was, precious Olive’s parents issued a clarion call to the Global Body of Christ to boldly pray and contend faith-filled prayers that call forth the Resurrection Power Christ won for us through His death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. For five days, we have joined with them and hundreds of thousands of believers from across the nations to dare to believe that God really is Who He says He is…the Resurrected King, Whose very breath, authority, power, and Spirit is living on the inside of us.


I have found myself undone and simply messed up at how God is using this situation to jolt awake the Body of Christ to awaken from her slumber and to arise to His call, His light shining upon her. I have seen a beautiful unity arise from the ashes of what the enemy intended for defeat; and a unified Body lift up praise and worship to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Worship is our warfare against every demonic principality and worship is our weapon against every foe that dare raise its hand against the Lord.

I must confess, I have found my own faith examined during these days. We have been through a number of situations in our own lives where we have warred and fought for the resurrection power of God to touch those dearest to us. For reasons we do not understand, we didn’t receive our loved ones back from the dead then. I immediately went into fasting, warring, and prayer mode upon hearing the report on Sunday. I took hold of His commission to me as a guardian of His Little Ones and grasped the hem of His garment; determined to see Olive’s name erased from His list of His Little Ones whose lives had been snuffed out by the enemy before the fulfillment of their days.

I discerned it as an obvious attack against His Little Ones and the Body; for by the evening, I had recorded five accounts from Saturday morning to Sunday evening of those who either died suddenly or whose lives were hanging in the balance.

As the days draw on, the Global Body continues to grow and rally together to call forth Life to Olive, that the breath of Victorious Awakening enter her lungs. I could smell the stench of the enemy creeping in to whisper doubt and unbelief as the situation appeares more “impossible” as time goes forward, placing a clock on God’s miracle power. I found my faith challenged to dare to believe that though I didn’t see the answers I cried out for in the past, that HE IS THE RESURRECTION and it’s not my idea to Resurrect. When push comes to shove, my job is to believe, decree, and declare; and let Him do the rest. I am going all in to fasten my line of faith to Jesus and believe with all I am that HE IS FAITHFUL AND HE IS LIFE.

This is Awakening.

The Body is shaking and hell is trembling. Surely, the world will see the undeniable power and realty of God in a way it has never seen. I genuinely believe the word He gave me a few months ago, The Great Sift for the Shift: The Call to Holiness, is coming forth in an even greater way to prepare the Bride for her Groom in the coming days.

While praying Tuesday morning, I heard the Lord say:

December 17, 2019

“I am continuing to sift and separate, to shake and reorder. I am continuing to expose unbelief so that faith can take its rightful place in My Body. For many, they have cast their lines of faith on the wrong side of the boat and have caught nothing. I am releasing a corporate opportunity to unlatch the cords of faith from the fruitless works; and to recast them in fruitful waters where My Spirit is brooding over.

I am releasing the call for My Bride to fasten her faith to Me and My promises. There is no room in My Kingdom for double-mindedness, doubt, and unbelief. I am ekballo-ing those barriers out of these waters so that My Bride may receive what has been prepared and promises that she may receive her reward.

I am reawakening the governmental authority in My Bride again. She has forgotten what she has been given authority and dominion over — what I victoriously and rightfully restored when I became the firstborn of many from the dead. I am reminding her of WHO she is and WHOSE she is! She must have her faith fastened to Me in order to rule and reign in her position and authority.”


Hebrews‬ ‭11:33‬-35 (TPT‬‬)
Through faith’s power they conquered kingdoms and established true justice. Their faith fastened onto their promises and pulled them into reality!
It was faith that shut the mouth of lions, put out the power of raging fire, and caused many to escape certain death by the sword. Although weak, their faith imparted power to make them strong!
Faith sparked courage within them and they became mighty warriors in battle, pulling armies from another realm into battle array.
Faith-filled women saw their dead children raised in resurrection power.
Yet it was faith that enabled others to endure great atrocities. They were stretched out on the wheel and tortured, and didn’t deny their faith in order to be freed, because they longed for a more honorable and glorious resurrection!

When looking at the Greek, verse 33 literally means:

The divine persuasion and confidence / to contend for a prize through intense warfare, to endeavor with strenuous zeal; to descend from a higher abode to a lower plane to cast down that which exalts itself above the Kingdom of God / to exercise Christ’s authority and dominion living on the inside of us over the kingdom of darkness; and to establish the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth / to accomplish a task or assignment through action / to establish divine righteousness and to deliver the verdict of justice through God’s judicial approval / to strike or hit the target, or reach the mark with pinpoint accuracy / the divine assurance of His good promises.

What have you fastened your faith to? Are there promises you’ve yet to see fulfilled? Keep pressing in and pressing through, to see your breakthrough!

‭‭John‬ ‭21:4-7‬ ‭(AMP‬‬)
As morning was breaking, Jesus [came and] stood on the beach; however, the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. So Jesus said to them, “Children, do you have any fish [to eat along with your bread]?” They answered, “No.”
And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat (starboard) and you will find some.” So they cast [the net], and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great catch of fish.
Then that disciple (John) whom Jesus loved (esteemed) said to Peter, “It is the Lord!”
So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer tunic (for he was stripped for work) and threw himself into the sea [and swam ashore].

Sometimes it takes a simple adjustment in our faith and in our lives to become perfectly aligned with the Father’s will for us, in us, and through us. At times our vision can become askew through life circumstances, doubt, unbelief, and when we are unable to see past what we perceive in the natural that appears contrary to His promises and Word. When realignment takes place, we are thrust into the abundant harvest He always designed for us and our eyes see Him and His Glory.

In Mark 5, Jairus, the synagogue official came to Jesus asking Him to heal his daughter who was sick and on her deathbed. Then, messenger from his household appear delivering the news that the girl had died.

Mark‬ ‭5:36, 38-40‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
But Jesus refused to listen to what they were told and said to the Jewish official, “Don’t yield to fear. All you need to do is to keep on believing.”

When they arrived at the home of the synagogue ruler, they encountered a noisy uproar among the people, for they were all weeping and wailing. Upon entering the home, Jesus said to them, “Why all this grief and weeping? Don’t you know the girl is not dead but merely asleep?” Then everyone began to ridicule and make fun of Him. But He threw them all outside.

Then He took the child’s father and mother and His three disciples and went into the room where the girl was lying.

The story continues with Jesus laying hands on the girl and speaking, “talitha koum”, which means, “little girl (or little lamb), wake up from the sleep of death.” Immediately, she awakens and is resurrected!

The world may look on and see all of this worship, contending, and bold faith for Olive’s resurrection as foolishness; but He uses what the world calls foolish to confound the wise. We must follow the example Jesus set. He refused to listen to the report that brought death, that spoke in opposition to the will of God. He discerned the girl had died prematurely and she still had a destiny to fulfill.

In fact, He declared Awakening! He gave the invitation to believe again, to come up higher, and to cast down fear! And to all the mockers and scoffers, He kicked them out, making no room for them!

In the Greek, it is the word, “EKBALLO”, which means, “to cast forth, hurl forth, thrust forth, with violence.” It is the same word used when Jesus said, “I cast out demons by the finger of God…” (Luke 11:20), and when He said to His disciples in Matthew 9:38, “As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest His grain!”

Are there promises in your life that appear to have died prematurely? Has doubt, fear, and unbelief crept in and disengaged or derailed you from the manifestation of His Glory revealed in your life? Refuse to give ear to the report of the enemy, and kick out every opposing force in your life, leaving no room for them to hinder the will of God! Dare to believe that every word He has spoken will not return void and without bearing fruit! Dare to dream again and trust in His timing! Decree and declare the Word of the Lord until you find yourself saying, “It happened just as He promised!”

I end with this: All day yesterday and today I have heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believed, you would see the Glory of God?!”

He IS the Resurrection and the Life! You need only BELIEVE!
