Victorious in Light

This morning while in the secret place, I had been reading the last few chapters of Mark’s account of Jesus’ path to the cross, His resurrection, His encounters with believers and His friends after His resurrection, and of His commission to His apostles to go into all the earth, preach the Good News and make disciples.

I reflected upon what Jesus did during those specific last days two-thousand years ago. He suffered continuous betrayal, died a cruel sinner’s death upon the cross, though He be sinless. He shattered the gates of hell and took back the keys of death and the grave, and He rose to life victoriously. He commissioned His apostles and us to go to every nation, tribe, and tongue and declare that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand; and He ascended to sit upon His heavenly throne and reign victoriously forever. He went to prepare a place for us.

As I sat overwhelmed with a fresh revelation of this reality leading up to Resurrection Day tomorrow, He began to speak to me about what He is doing now and what He is going to do. I heard Him say:

“Glory and splendor are rising unto My name. Death has been defeated and I am victorious in light!!! You will look and see My glory in ways unheard of! So much joy is coming in a mighty increase, yes, a mighty crescendo throughout eternity.

The nations will gaze upon Me and be filled with new life!

My glory is My goodness; and I restore what was broken and severed. You have yet to know what I am going to do! For what is coming is going to be greater than what has been!

For My name’s sake, I am bringing with Me a new light and a new life in this present darkness. Where the sun and moon will be darkened, I will bring a flash of light that will be a sign to you of My promise. A sign of release to My gift of restoration will you see.

I am taking what was broken and left in destitution and I am rebuilding a new creation, far better than what was. The nations will gaze upon what I masterfully create and will be amazed and in awe and wonder!

You will know the age of rejoicing has come by these signs. Come with your joy offerings and your sacrifices of love and watch what I do! I make all things better than before! I make all things new!”

Isaiah 60:1-4 (TPT)
“Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned, and Yahweh’s glory now streams from you! Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you and the brightness of His glory appears over you! Nations will be attracted to your radiant light and kings to the sunrise-glory of your new day. Lift up your eyes higher! Look all around you and believe, for your sons are returning from far away and your daughters are being tenderly carried home. Watch as they all gather together, eager to come back to you!”

V. 10, 14 (TPT)
“Foreigners will rebuild your walls and their kings will serve you. Even though I punished you in My anger, I will restore you in My gracious favor, and show you My tender compassion.”
“The descendants of your oppressors will come bowing low before you, and all who hated you will bow down at your feet. They will call you The Beautiful City of Yahweh, Glorious Zion of the Holy One of Israel.”

V. 15-16 (TPT)
“Although once you were rejected and despised, undesirable for anyone to pass through you, I will make you majestic forever, a source of joy for every generation. You will guzzle the milk of nations and suckle at the breast of kings. You will know Me intimately that I am Yahweh, your Savior, for I am the Mighty Hero who rules over Jacob’s tribes, your Kinsman-Redeemer!”

V. 19-22 (TPT)
“The sun will no longer be needed to brighten the day, nor the moon to shine at night, for Yahweh will be your unfailing light; your God will be your glory! There will be no more sunsets or new moons, for Yahweh will be your everlasting light and your days of sadness will be over. All your people will be righteous and will permanently possess the land. I planted them there as a tender sapling, the work of My own hands to display My glory. I will multiply the least of you into a thousand and the weakest one into a mighty nation. I am Yahweh, and when the right time comes, I will accomplish it swiftly!”

Raising Up Martyrs

For the past few days I have been pondering and dwelling on a thing with the Lord. I find myself going back to this past Sunday when I was teaching the youth at our church. For months now, the Lord has been leading me to teach about the Harvest. I taught out of John 4 for a few months through the end of last year and into the new year; followed by teaching out of the end of Matthew 9:27-38 and on into Matthew 10.

I fully expected to teach from Matthew 10:7-8, And as you go, preach this message: ‘Heaven’s Kingdom realm is accessible (at hand), 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.However, He chose to lead it in a completely different direction and not even really talk about Matthew 10 in the way I thought. He led the conversation into teaching about martyrdom to youth under the age of fourteen.

While this isn’t your typical idea of what a Sunday morning teaching and discipleship for youth would look like; He planted seeds of holy pursuit, zealous passion, and awakened compassion. I shared the stories of modern-day martyrs, Jim Elliot, along with his four friends while attempting to reach the Huaorani tribe in Ecuador; and this past year, John Chau, who gave up his life to reach the highly isolated tribe on North Sentinel Island.

All-consuming love for Jesus and to bring Him the reward of His suffering has marked those who have given up everything, including their very lives, to go to the ends of the earth for love. God is awakening His compassion unto action in this generation. This very thing is what so moved Jesus’ heart for the lost in His day.

Matthew 9:35-38 (TPT)
“Jesus walked throughout the region with the joyful message of God’s Kingdom realm. He taught in their meeting houses, and wherever He went He demonstrated God’s power by healing every kind of disease and illness. When He saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. He turned to His disciples and said, ‘THE HARVEST IS HUGE AND RIPE! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. AS YOU GO, PLEAD with the Owner of the Harvest to THRUST out many more reapers to harvest His grain!'”

When Jesus saw the crowds of people, compassion overtook Him and He was gripped by it because when He looked upon them, He saw a lost, hurting, broken, abandoned, addicted, wandering, worn, helpless, harassed, distressed, shepherd-less, scattered people, condemned to an eternity of separation and torment in hell. The literal translation of their state is as if they had been flayed, skinned alive, and mangled. He saw their great need of a Deliverer and Savior.

I believe that perhaps He not only saw the crowds that were before Him, but also caught a glimpse or vision of the vast multitudes that would come who resembled the same state. Perhaps upon seeing this, He thought back on God’s desire to co-labor with His creation to carry out His will in the earth. For it is when seeing this reality that He turned to His disciples and presented the problem.
The harvest is huge and ripe, where are they who would partner with Me in gathering it in?
No sooner did He present the problem did He provide the solution. As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest His grain!” He then commissioned His disciples to GO, and as they went, to PLEAD that He would THRUST out more laborers.

In other words, “I am sending (EKBALLO-ing) you to be the answer; and I command you to plead (BEG) Me to hurl (EKBALLO) forth more laborers into the Harvest as you go!”

This is His divine commissioning — He expects and commands us to go!

Upon this command we see going into Matthew 10, that He imparted to them authority and power to do as He had done. We are then brought back to Matthew 10:7-8 as stated above. The disciples had been marked by a zeal that had consumed them. When you have become so marked and consumed by this holy passion and fire, you become unstoppable; for the Unstoppable One dwells within you. This very thing is what led the apostles to say to the leaders in their day who told them to stop sharing about Jesus, “We cannot help but to speak what we have seen and known to be true!” (Acts 4:18-20

Thinking on this, I asked Holy Spirit why He directed the teaching to martyrdom and what it means for the Body of Christ. He replied,

“I did it because it is time to level up! It is time to stop spoon-feeding this generation of believers with a comfortable gospel!

IT IS TIME TO GO ALL IN! YOU ARE EITHER ALL IN OR NOT IN AT ALL!

There is no age-requirement to My command and call! There is only one requirement: a simple person being simply obedient! If you train up a child in the way they should go, when they are older, they will not depart from it! This generation and the ones to come possess a passion and tenacity that I placed within them to scale the heights, undaunted, fearless, and unrelenting.

Are you willing to lay down your life for My Kingdom to be advanced and established in the earth? Are you willing to lay down your life for souls?Do not neglect to train and equip them in the FULL Gospel of Truth; for some of them will indeed lay down their very lives for My name’s sake and the sake of souls, some even at a young age. They MUST be properly trained and prepared. This can only be done by example. I prepared and equipped My disciples by setting the example. I laid down My very life for the sake of the world.

Indeed, some of you will. But do not continue until you count the cost. I have come to set you on fire that others will come and watch you burn. Like a wildfire, it will be caught and spread across boundary lines, state lines, water lines, and dividing lines.  You must warn them to step up and step out; for I am coming! Sooner than they think! But not until every tribe, every tongue, and every nation has been given the opportunity to come to Me! This is only done through your obedience and the faithful obedience of My Bride.”

I dwelled deeply on this word last night and He reminded me of Acts 1:8, the last thing Jesus said to His apostles before He ascended into Heaven.

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

The word for “power” is “dunamis“, which is where we get the word, “dynamite“. The word for “messengers” or “witnesses” is “martus“, which is the word, “martyr“. It is as if He was saying, “Holy Spirit is coming and will baptize you and fill you with an explosive power that will catapult you to be martyrs for My Kingdom to the ends of the earth!”

I am reminded of the week after I returned from The Send. I had received such a fresh baptism of fire and a fresh commission to Go! Two days into the week, I overheard my three-year old son singing, “I will preach the Gospel, die and be forgotten, as long as You get the glory!” On another occasion I heard him singing, “I will love You with my ‘Yes’ and with my obedience, Jesus!”, and “It’s my joy to lose my life and find it in Jesus Christ.”

Azariah in tears, being overwhelmed by Holy Spirit in prayer.

I wept then as I do now; and not for the reason that many would think. I am filled with abounding joy and am proud of my son that even though he is young, his heart is stirring to yearn for Jesus and to go to any length to love Him and partner with Him in His grand plan of salvation and setting the earth on fire. That he desires to carry out his own destiny and purpose created for him from before the foundations of the earth were laid.

This is what we are to do. We are to first become martyrs. Then we are to raise up and train others to become martyrs. We are all called to be martyrs for Jesus. Some of us will laid down our very lives for this cause for He is worthy; however, all of us are called to be faithful witnesses to what we have seen and known to be true. Jesus is the One Who is Faithful and True. 

The Spirit of Prophecy is the testimony of Jesus. When we testify, we prophesy!

My prayer is this:
God, awaken us all to Your call! Awaken us to our purpose in the earth: to proclaim, train, and send. Father, baptize us in a holy compassion for the lost that would so grip us as it did You; and that we would stop at nothing to go to the ends of the earth for love! May we lay down our very lives for the lost to know You. Come what may, we will go with You! Here we are God! Send us! The wisdom of God is foolish in the eyes of the world; but still we go with You! May we partner with You and be fire starters that set nations ablaze for Your glory; and may we train up martyrs for Your Kingdom! May we never relent in this great ascent!

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”

Israel: Ekballo!

For the past 39 days, thousands across America and the nations have been in an extended season of a Jesus Fast; praying for a fresh wave of Revival, Reformation, and the Proclamation of the Gospel to the nations. We have seen that we are in a critical 70-year transitional moment in history, as Daniel saw in his day in Daniel 9He set his face to fasting and prayer, in repentance with humility before the Lord; that a shift would take place in the desolate reality of his day, and that the Lord would extend His hand with forgiveness, restoration, and transformation. We know that he was met by the messenger angel, Gabriel, in the middle of praying and was encouraged that from the very moment he began praying, his prayer was heard in Heaven and a response was on its way (Daniel 9:20-22).

Astonishingly, these acts from Daniel harbingered a complete shift in the empires, powers, and principalities plaguing his day. Could it be that a humble act of one simple person being simply obedient, could in fact, change the course of history; not just for their people, but for the nations of the earth? We believe it can and that it will. We also know that where there is unity, He commands a blessing (Psalm 133). If the prayers of one righteous person could do all of those things, then what kind of kingdom-shaking fruit could the unified fasting and prayer of thousands across the world produce?

It is time to seize this kairos moment.

It is imperative that in seizing this moment, that we also pray for the nation of Israel, God’s chosen people. It is no coincidence that tomorrow, day 40 of this fast, is election day in Israel. There is a grand upheaval taking place in the unseen realm that we must acknowledge and not ignore. Make no mistake, if we do not stand with Israel and contend in prayer for His people and His government that has no end to be established in the land; then we will have missed it completely. It has been 70 years since Israel became a nation and the evangelistic outpouring of the Spirit began in 1948. We must pray for His government to be established in Israel and for righteous, God-fearing leaders to be set in place; and that grace and favor would be released.

When Jesus first commissioned His disciples in Matthew 9:36-38 as He gazed upon His people and saw that they were lost, weary, harassed, confused, scattered (as if being flayed, mangled, or skinned alive); and He felt such deep compassion upon them that it drove Him to action. He said, “Pray (plead, ‘urge you to beg Me’) to the Lord of the Harvest to SEND (EKBALLO- to hurl forth with violence, cast out, thrust forth) forth laborers into the Harvest.” As He sent His disciples out, He told them to go to the Israel- God’s lost sheep (Matthew 10:5-8) and not to the Gentiles. Because of their rejection of Him, we now are able to partake in eternity with Him; however, that desire never ceased even though they rejected Him. He will never cease in His pursuit of His Beloved.

Romans 11:11-12, 15 (TPT)
“So, am I saying that Israel stumbled so badly that they will never get back up? Certainly not! Rather, it was because of their stumble that salvation now extends to all the non-Jewish people, in order to make Israel jealous and desire the very things that God has freely given them. So if all the world is being greatly enriched through their failure, and through their fall great spiritual wealth is given to the non-Jewish people, IMAGINE HOW MUCH MORE WILL ISRAEL’S AWAKENING BRING TO US ALL!
“For if their temporary rejection released the reconciling power of grace into the world, what will happen when Israel is reinstated and reconciled to God? It will unleash resurrection power throughout the whole earth!”

IMAGINE HOW MUCH MORE WILL ISRAEL’S AWAKENING BRING TO US ALL!
IT WILL UNLEASH RESURRECTION POWER THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EARTH!

The global proclamation of the Gospel with signs, wonders, and stadiums filled!

This is what we are after. In prayer for Israel this morning and the elections, the Lord spoke this word:

“Your hour has come, Israel. The hour in which I take that which you have known as your reality and cause a great shaking and sifting. I am uprooting all opposition and enemy invasion. I will cause all that is opposed to Me and My plans and purposes to fall and be cast down. Every demonic force attempting to overthrow My hand in the land will be exposed on a micro level as well as a macro level. All corruption will be exposed and condemned.

Surely, it will not get beyond Me as I step in to set in place those in which I have ordained to take their place. You have been at war for your identity for long enough. I am stepping in with My hand of might and I am taking out of play all that would oppose you, seek to cause you harm, to try and orphan you, and to keep you in your shackles. Yes, I am shattering your shackles! No longer will you remain alone and isolated; but I am causing those who are riding with Me to join you and partner with you. The nations will look upon you and be in awe and wonder as I bring forth liberation you have not seen for a time and a half. They will will look upon you and say, ‘We have not seen such peace in our lifetime!’

For a time I seemed afar off, but now, I am coming close! Behold, I will demonstrate My power in the days ahead and all nations will see My victory! Your land promised you will be returned to you. No longer will foreigners occupy your territory; you will again live in the land given to your ancestors. Yes, you will dwell in your inheritance!

I will again clothe you with victory and righteousness. No longer will you be blindsided by that which would cause you harm; but I will take care of all that would attempt to overtake you. I am your Defender! Set your gaze on Me and align your focus on My Son!”

I felt very strongly that the Lord desires to fulfill His promise in Isaiah 52:1-12:

“Wake up, wake up, O Zion! Clothe yourself with strength. Put on your beautiful clothes, O holy city of Jerusalem, for unclean and godless people will enter your gates no longer. Rise from the dust, O Jerusalem. Sit in a place of honor. Remove the chains of slavery from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. For this is what the Lord says: ‘When I sold you into exile, I received no payment. Now I can redeem you without having to pay for you.’
This is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘Long ago My people chose to live in Egypt. Now they are oppressed by Assyria. What is this?’ asks the Lord. ‘Why are My people enslaved again? Those who rule them shout in exultation. My name is blasphemed all day long. But I will reveal My name to My people, and they will come to know its power. Then at last they will recognize that I am the one who speaks to them.’
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!
The watchmen shout and sing with joy, for before their very eyes they see the Lord returning to Jerusalem.
Let the ruins of Jerusalem break into joyful song, for the Lord has comforted His people. He has redeemed Jerusalem.
The Lord has demonstrated His holy power before the eyes of all the nations.
All the ends of the earth will see the victory of our God.
Get out! Get out and leave your captivity, where everything you touch is unclean. Get out of there and purify yourselves, you who carry home the sacred objects of the Lord. You will not leave in a hurry, running for your lives. For the Lord will go ahead of you; yes, the God of Israel will protect you from behind.”

Join us in praying:
Jesus, once again we know You are looking to Your own people harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd. And we know Your heart is broken because there are few laborers. So we take up Your groan and Your prayer. We seek to align with Your broken heart. We beg You to do what You have been longing to do since You first commanded Your disciples to pray this prayer, “Hurl forth laborers to the lost sheep of the house of Israel!” We say as we pray, “Ekballo Your laborers, and here we are, send us!” May we be those who grant the desire of Your heart to set the earth ablaze for the Glory of the Lord as You arrive to do the same!

The Breaker is Here!

Yesterday was a day of remembrance. Yesterday was Purim, the day of remembrance for Jews of the deliverance and victory over the death decree issued by Haman to exterminate all of the Jews across the land. God raised Esther up as queen in a kairos moment of time to decree a 3-day fast to seek God for deliverance from Haman’s curse. She risked everything, even her very life, to go before the king on behalf of the salvation of her people. Insert God’s divine favor and providence. The end result: Haman’s hanging, followed by a reversal of the curse on His people, and the destruction of every evil force determined to kill, slaughter, and annihilate them. Complete victory.

We have been in a 40-day world-wide Jesus Fast since March 1 through April 9. Thousands across the nations have taken up a commission of intentional prayer and fasting to see the ending of abortion in our day, and that God would Ekballo a new wave of laborers into the Harvest.

Yesterday marked day 21 of the fast and as I sought the Lord, I felt such a significant breakthrough, even more than I did the day before, being halfway through the fast. In prayer, God reminded me of Daniel 10. Daniel had been 21 days into a fast seeking God for deliverance and salvation for his people. Then God sent a messenger declaring that FROM DAY 1 of his fasting and intentional prayer, his prayer had been heard in the courts of Heaven. FROM DAY 1, angels were commissioned at the declaration and decree of the word of God through his lips. The angels hearken to the Word of God to complete it! (Psalm 103:20) The following three weeks were that of great spiritual warfare in the unseen over the releasing of Heaven’s decree and action. Then God sent a breaker, Michael, to war and defeat the opposing forces, so that His Word would be made manifest.

When I awoke that morning, I had thought it odd that I was completely congested when I had felt fine the night before. However, as He led me back to Daniel, He revealed to me that the congestion I was experiencing was a direct reflection of the congestion in the gateways of the supernatural realm. All demons in hell are in direct opposition to the will of God for the nations coming to fruition. So it is no surprise that there would be a great congestion of demonic forces attempting to block the way of angelic messengers carrying forth the Word and Will of God to the Global Body of Christ. Anything to prevent a Global Harvest from coming to fruition and completion. It is then that He spoke:

My daughter, THE YEAR OF THE LORD’S FAVOR HAS COME!

I AM HERE TO BRING THE BREAKER, YES, THE HAMMER! A time of great breaking, yes, a smashing will take place. Every stubborn resistance and wall of opposition is coming down and being destroyed NOW!

No longer will there be continuous road blocks severing the connection to total Kingdom access; but there will be UNENDING ACCESS in the days to come. I HAVE COME TO BE THE RECONCILIATOR to what was once broken and disjointed. I have come to BREAK OPEN THE PORTALS that have become blocked. No longer will it be said, “the way is blocked!” UNDEFILED CONNECTION! I have dispatched My Messengers, My Burning Ones, to clear the path and make it ready! All congestion is breaking off RIGHT NOW!!!

Throughout the day, I experienced total breakthrough and victory over every enemy attack that I experienced. THIS is what God wants to do. He wants to be the breaker of every yoke, every attack, every prison door, every shackle, every opposition. The Breaker comes when we fast! He can’t help but to respond to the hunger that is released! Isaiah 58 is evidence of this.

Fasting is a gift from God in that as we give Him the gift and offering of ourselves that He would be glorified through our sacrifice, praise, and obedience through fasting; He returns a great eternal reward back to us that not only affects us personally, but fasting literally shifts the spirit realm over nations!!! Fasting is an act bigger than ourselves. 

Isaiah 58:6-7 (AMP)
“[Rather] is this not the fast which I choose, to undo the bonds of wickedness, to tear to pieces the ropes of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free and break apart every [enslaving] yoke? Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into the house; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not to hide yourself from [the needs of] your own flesh and blood?”

Isaiah 58:8-12 (TPT)
“Then My favor will bathe you in sunlight until you are like the dawn bursting through a dark night. And then suddenly your healing will manifest. You will see your righteousness march out before you, and the glory of Yahweh will protect you from all harm!
Then Yahweh will answer you when you pray. When you cry out for help, He will say, ‘I am here.’ If you banish every form of oppression, the scornful accusation, and vicious slander, and if you offer yourselves in compassion for the hungry and relieve those in misery, then your dawning light will rise in the darkness and your gloom will turn into noonday splendor!
Yahweh will always guide you where to go and what to do. He will fill you with refreshment even when you are in a dry, difficult place. He will continually restore strength to you, so you will flourish like a well-watered garden and like an ever-flowing, trustworthy spring of blessing.
Your people will rebuild long-deserted ruins, building anew on foundation laid long before you. You will be known as Repairers of the Cities and Restorers of Communities.”

Daniel 10:12-14 (AMP)
“Then he said to me, ‘Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was standing in opposition to me for twenty-one days. Then, behold, Michael, one of the chief [of the celestial] princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision is in regard to the days yet to come.'”

Awakening is Breaking Forth!

In the past few weeks since returning home after The Send, I have encountered extreme warfare that I believe has been rolling across many in the Body of Christ in this hour of transition into the new era. Being truly lit on fire during my time there, I immediately recognized a slumbering spirit partnered with a spirit of disillusionment and disorientation rising up in opposition. I returned with a fresh commission and suddenly it became extremely difficult and took great pressing to connect into the dream stream with the Lord and to see and hear clearly.
I get up rather early in the morning to seek Him and found that every morning a slumbering spirit kept attacking me; so overwhelmingly strong was its attempts. I have spent the past few weeks battling and warring against it, with much frustration I must admit. I can attest that yesterday morning I broke through. I was in the middle of reading Isaiah 46 and struggling to stay focused. When I got to verse 13 and read it, immediately it was as if something snapped that I could even hear in the spirit; and I came out of it right then and was completely awake and aware.

Isaiah 46:13 (TPT)
“I am bringing My righteousness closer to you; it is not far off. My deliverance will not be delayed, for I will set My salvation in Zion for Israel My glory!”

Isaiah 46:13 (NLT)
“For I am ready to set things right, not in the distant future, but right now! I am ready to save Jerusalem and show My glory to Israel.”

I knew without a doubt that what took place resonated across time and space, representing what He is releasing throughout the nations; signifying the moment of season’s change. Where I had been warring to hear and see through the fog stationed before me, suddenly I perceived with undimmed eyes and heard with unclogged ears. He told me to go back a chapter to Isaiah 45 and to remember a verse from it that I shared in two posts, Salvation Through a Babe and 2019: It’s All About Righteousness, a few months ago; to remember what He declared then.

Isaiah 45:8 (TPT)
“Shower down righteousness, O heavens above. Let the clouds drip with deliverance! Let earth’s womb open and bear salvation’s fruit, with righteousness rising up beside it! I, Yahweh, have created them all!”

As I read the verse, I was overcome with joyful expectation and a greater understanding of a word He has been speaking to Jeremiah and I this year, “A storm is coming!” It is then that I heard Him say:

America, your days are numbered.
Numbered are the days in which you will remain in your current condition. Numbered are the days in which the hand of the enemy has played you and delayed you from entering into your spring season. Where there was once a dried up winter laden with a bitter freeze and cold; the warmth of the Son’s rays are stretching forth to melt away the dead of winter. To your astonishment, you will find that as the snow and ice melts away, life is exposed and unearthed beneath the blanket of slumbering. The bondage you have known for far too long as an arctic winter will keep you in darkness no longer.

Look out upon the horizon and see the sun breaking forth! Look out and see the new life shooting up from the nourished soil. I take the things once dried up and frozen in darkness and I breathe new life in the change of season.

I have seen and heard the hunger and prayers offered up as incense before My Throne and the bowls have tipped, running over! Behold, I have watched as the tear-stained prayers and petitions and the rumbling growls of the hungry have crept and swept across My Throne! They have washed My feet as an offering of praise.

Truly I tell you, just as I brought eternal honor to My servant, Mary for her pure devotion and adoration; so will I honor and bring an eternal remembrance to the fresh offering being given in this hour. The sacrifice has been and will forever be worth it!

I say to you, DO NOT RELENT IN YOUR PURSUIT for just as the offering has been spilled out before and upon My feet; you will see it turn into a steady stream flowing from My Throne to the floodgates. They will burst open at the force of the stream crashing into them and you will see them returned back to you in storm clouds bringing the abundance of rain!

DO YOU HEAR THE TRICKLE NOW? DO YOU PERCEIVE IT? CHANGE IS IN THE AIR!

The more that you seek My face in the secret place, the greater the outpouring of Heaven! Gaze out upon your land and prophesy that which I have spoken. Declare the increase of LIFE that I have shown you. DO NOT BE SILENT, but allow your awakened state to call forth the awakening and the ascension! Look out and see RIGHTEOUSNESS RISING! RIGHTEOUSNESS IS COMING! I am ready to make My goodness pass before you! I will cast My Glory upon you!

Almond_tree,_snow.

An almond tree is the first tree to awaken with Spring’s arrival. Almond means “awake.”

All this past weekend I kept seeing 111 and 1111 literally everywhere I turned, way more than normal. Those numbers are symbolic of transition and awakening. I even saw an almond tree signifying awakening and season’s change, among other things, like in Jeremiah 1. I knew that something was coming forth in the spirit then and that a breaker was being released. He spoke when the lights switched on yesterday morning, “I am coming forth to complete what I began!”

Jeremiah 1:11-12 (AMP)
“The word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘Jeremiah, what do you see?’ And I said, ‘I see the branch of an almond tree.’ Then the Lord said to me, ‘You have seen well, for I am [actively] watching over My word to fulfill it.'”

It is no coincidence either that a change in seasons in the natural with the start of Spring tomorrow is occurring in this moment of time. All of creation is responding to the shift taking place!

Song of Solomon 2:10-13 (TPT)
“The one I love calls to me: 
Arise, My dearest. Hurry, My darling. Come away with Me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to My heart and lead you out. For NOW IS THE TIME, My beautiful one. THE SEASON HAS CHANGED, THE BONDAGE OF YOUR BARREN WINTER HAS ENDED, and the season of hiding is over and gone. THE RAINS HAVE SOAKED THE EARTH and left it bright with blossoming flowers. The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, FILLING THE AIR WITH SONGS TO AWAKEN YOU AND GUIDE YOU FORTH.
CAN YOU NOT DISCERN THIS NEW DAY OF DESTINY BREAKING FORTH AROUND YOU?
THE EARLY SIGNS OF MY PURPOSES AND PLANS ARE BURSTING FORTH. THE BUDDING VINES OF NEW LIFE ARE NOW BLOOMING EVERYWHERE.
 The fragrance of their flowers whispers, ‘THERE IS CHANGE IN THE AIR.’
ARISE, My love, My beautiful companion, and RUN WITH ME TO THE HIGHER PLACE. For NOW IS THE TIME TO ARISE AND COME AWAY WITH ME.”

Today marks day 50 of the 50 Days of Prayer for Life and the ending of abortion, that I have been a part of. Last night was also the premiere of the new film, Unplanned, a true story about Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director’s dramatic transformation to loving God and exposing the spirit of abortion. We will also be hitting the halfway point in our 40-day Jesus Fast tomorrow, the day of Spring equinox. California is experiencing a Super Bloom of wildflowers after the fires swept through the state last year.

I truly believe that the Word of the Lord above is in response to the prayers, petitions, and fasting taking place globally for an ending of abortion and Ekballo, a resurgence of Life, an emergence of awakened Burning Ones, and a commission of laborers into the Harvest. In pondering on His word that He has heard the rumbling growls of the hungry and of the increase in 111 awakening signs, He spoke through my mouth, Ecclesiastes 11:1.

Ecclesiastes 11:1 (AMP)
“Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, [be diligently active, make thoughtful decisions], for you will find it after many days.”

Beloved, NOW is the hour in which the sacrifices and offerings of praise are being returned to us. NOW we will see the first fruits of love and obedience! I have shared on these things for the past year; but I feel such a strong pull in the spirit to surge through and charge forth! DO NOT RELENT OR GIVE IN, FOR WE ARE NOT THOSE WHO DRAW BACK IN FEAR UNTO DEATH! WE ARE THOSE WHO PRESS IN AND PRESS FORWARD TO THE FULL SALVATION, HEALING, AND DELIVERANCE OF THE SOUL!!! 

THE BREAKER IS HERE! DO YOU NOT PERCEIVE IT? 

SEASON’S CHANGE. WINTER IS OVER. THE RAINS OF HEAVEN ARE HERE. LIFE IS BURSTING FORTH EVERYWHERE. IT’S TIME TO AWAKEN, ARISE, AND ASCEND!!!

India: Governments Overthrown to Make Him Known

Recently, I was in a deep moment of worship and intercession with the Lord and was listening to a prayer set from a prayer room in our region. They began to pray and intercede for the launching of a global missions movement and prayed specifically over the nation of India. While praying myself, a song came forth from a deep place in the Spirit:

On the breath of the four winds, here come the flames| flames of fire, Your servants
to bring You a song, bring You a song, bring You a song of praise
They’re singing: Come on in, come on in|it’s time to ascend
to the hill of the Lord|to seek His face like never before
Upon this rock, I’ll establish a house|a house of praise for all your days
Can you hear them singing?|Come on in, come on in, it’s time to ascend

In this place, I was caught up in a vision to a place that I have been once before five years ago. I was in a dark room that was as if it was a negative space, like it was fully dark. When I glanced to the left, I saw an architect desk lit with an overhead lamp and Jesus was sitting at it. I walked over to Him from behind and He glanced back, smiled at me, and motioned me over with a nod; inviting me into His work space and in on what He was working on. Looking at the desk, I saw a large blueprint sheet with an outline of the nation of India. He held a pen in His hand and He was drawing on the nation.

It was unclear to me at first what He was doing, so I asked Him what He was working on and He said,

“I am overthrowing governments and kingdoms. Many will come toppling down; and I will build My House upon their ground. Governments built upon unstable foundations will crumble down, every power and principality in opposition to Me will follow suit and bow down to Me. I am more powerful than every single entity and worthless idol residing over the nation. Soon, you will see them fall down and all will see Me as the One Who alone is God!” 

Jesus then began drawing some more and there were three locations that stuck out on the picture of the nation. When I looked, I saw that the three places were north-central, west-central, and south-centrally located. I asked Him what it meant and He replied,

“A cord of three strands is not easily broken; and a unified body yields great power. I am about to shake things right-side up and the masses will see My glory as I tear down every idol opposed to Me. Watch as I destroy that which glorifies another and see as I establish high places in which the lost may come into My family. Yes, the orphans will find a home. I am raising up those who will establish and implement My values and principles in a nation that was once far from Me, but has turned to Me. You will remember the time so long ago in which My Truth was first received by you and you will honor it as a memorial across your land.

“As I uproot evil within your government, I will remove from power those in which have exploited your poor for riches’ gain; for I hate exploitation of My children. Every offering made to idols will return void as your carved images topple to the ground in pieces! This will be the sign of a divine purge taking place across the whole of the land.

“You will see a rise in the value of your rupees as I bring into play a front-runner to govern your nation. He will be a man you have not known and many will find themselves saying, ‘Who is this man? Where has he come from? He has risen from the low places and yet he has prestige and speaks with great power and authority.’ I have been at work within his heart and I have been creating a hunger and desire for Me within him.

“A righteous indignation will arise within him towards glory given to idols and he will begin in partnership with Me, to eradicate your land of enemy strongholds. It will be so foreign to you, for you have not seen such pure and righteous actions in ages.

“Curiosity will begin to sweep across the land at the power behind it. The saying, ‘curiosity killed the cat’, will carry a dual meaning; it will be a paradox. To the curious, they will receive life where they were once headed straight for death’s doors. The only cat dying here will be satan as his grip on the souls of this land are ripped from his hands, and he is sent plummeting to the pit.

“You will see life begin to spring forth from the soil of your land like never before. Where there were once dry bones littering your land, you will see a mass burial of all that has displayed death. Watch as the unthinkable takes place, where your waters were once polluted with death, a supernatural cleansing will come forth, bringing new life and restoration. You will drink of the well of salvation and of the rivers of living water and you will never thirst again!”

Isaiah 56:7 (NLT)
I will bring them to My holy mountain of Jerusalem and will fill them with joy in My house of prayer. I will accept their burnt offerings and sacrifices, because My Temple will be called a house of prayer for all nations.

Haggai 2:21-23 (MSG)
God’s Message came a second time to Haggai on that most memorable day, the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month: “Speak to Zerubbabel, the governor of Judah: ‘
I am about to shake up everything, to turn everything upside down and start over from top to bottom—overthrow governments, destroy foreign powers, dismantle the world of weapons and armaments, throw armies into confusion, so that they end up killing one another. And on that day’—this is God’s Message—’I will take you, O Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, as My personal servant and I will set you as a signet ring, the sign of My sovereign presence and authority. I’ve looked over the field and chosen you for this work.’” The Message of God-of-the-Angel-Armies.

2019: It’s All About Righteousness

While in a special service at our church on November 14, 2018, the Lord took me into an open vision in which He began to speak to me about what He was preparing for the coming year in 2019. I have stewed on the word and prayed about it since receiving it.

In the vision I saw a vast group of fiery young zealous ones who were burning ablaze for the Lord. Upon the Hill of the Lord, they began to form a line that extended beyond my eyes’ reach. As they lined up, I saw angels standing at an equipping station. In this equipping station were shovels organized in varying sizes. Each Burning One would take up their designated instrument, each sized according to the depth of their task, and would step over to another angel who would hand each one a banner. Upon the banner was written the word, “Righteousness.” As they took up their banner, with joy in their hearts, they began to run down the mountain in a purposeful, fiery descent. These were the trailblazers, the pioneers in what God is birthing. They charged forth to the farthest reaches of the earth, their assignments burning in their hearts. They refused to relent, draw back, or hunker down in the face of opposition and fear.

Upon their arrival, they took up their shovels and struck the soil of the nation, city, and region that they were assigned to. To some their digging was but for a moment with garden shovels, for their treasure was hidden in shallow soil. For others, they required large shovels to dig deep and labored greatly to bring it forth; and to others, God dispatched angels to man excavators in assistance to unearth what was hidden. They would not relent until they brought forth the relics of the nations, buried and long forgotten. The relics looked like swords, jewels and precious stones, crowns, crosses, various weapons, and many other items of great relevance and importance to the history of these nations.
When the Burning Ones retrieved the forgotten relics, they ran with great violence to return and restore the relics to their rightful places. Awakening was upon their lips and modeled in their actions. I could see them meeting with diplomats, presidents, religious leaders, individuals, and many others from outward significance to unrecognized chosen ones. The relics returned were a sign to the nations to awaken to their purpose, awaken out of slumber, and awaken to righteousness unto restoration. They served as a reminder of where the nation came from, their origin in the faith, and their original design. The Burning Ones called forth these nations to Return to Righteousness.
They then returned from whence they came to the Mountain of the Lord. In their ascent, they blazed a path up the mountain. They met at the top and began to worship the Lord in unity. As their songs arose like sweet-smelling incense to the Lord, the nations began to flock to the mountain, following the fiery trails seared into the wilderness way. Upon the peak took place a divine convergence of the Burning Ones and the Returning Ones. Together as they lifted their praise, they converged to into the Sent Ones.

This is what I heard the Lord say:
It’s time to Return to Righteousness. 2019 will be the awakening unto Righteousness. In this coming year, a trumpet will sound in the Heavenlies that will awaken My dormant ones. Out they will come, with a fire in their eyes and a fire burning in their bones. They will have awoken from their still state unto their prepared purpose. You will see them gather and with an accelerated ascent, they will shoot up like I have poured miracle grow on them. They will have been the ones that have been tested by the wait, tried by the fire, and emerge as the ones true to testify.
With thanksgiving upon their lips, they will run wearing robes of Righteousness. They will take up the tools for divine excavation. They will go forth, go out, and go up! As they go forth, they will carry awakening in their wings. The sound of their coming will shake the fallow ground and stir up age-old foundations — they will shake up old traditions and break apart every immovable idol. The thunder of their going out will resonate through the ages. It will be deafening to those who are far from are.
The ground trembles under their feet — a mighty army prepared and equipped for battle. Can you see them? My Burning Ones? Can you hear the rolling thunder of their arrival, as a great stampede of horses galloping upon the plains? If you haven’t, you soon will as they arrive. A sound quite like that has never been heard before and it will never be heard again! As they go out, they will charge forth with one heart and one purpose — to shake the nations awake and to set the ablaze.
They will come and begin their excavation process and they will be relentless to unearth Righteousness in the earth again. For behold, they will emerge with the Relics of a Righteousness in the nations. No matter the depth these treasures are located, these Sent Ones will not stop until they retrieve Righteousness and return it to blind and forgetful nations. Their message is this: “Return to Righteousness!” As they recover these lost relics, they will return them to their rightful place and prepare the way for the nations to return to Me. It will not be long before their message shifts from, “Return to Righteousness!” to “Righteousness Restored!”
As the nations come alive to the message/trumpet call of these catalysts, another trumpet will sound in the Heavenlies: “Time for the Ascent!” These catalysts have come down from My Holy Mountain to carry out My mission. As they did, they blazed a trail, a clear path for the nations to travel upon as they find their way back to Me again. Here, upon My Holy Mountain, they will join together and with one heart’s cry and seek My face.”
