The Heavens Declare 17/40

You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!

As we approach the halfway mark of The 40, know this, God is with you.  He has promised to never leave you or forsake you.  Another tactic of the enemy to pull you out of The 40 is to make you feel alone.  I pray that you are encouraged by the community and words that are being shared here.  It is always easier to share struggles with someone who is going through everything right alongside you, and that is why we are here.  However, Jesus is even closer and able to help far more than those in your spiritual family.  Never forget, He is here to help, love, and support you no matter what.

I encourage you today to focus on the goodness of GodHe is faithful to us and every one of the promises he has spoken over us.  He blesses us with His abounding grace and abundant mercy. He overwhelms us with the gifts of heaven, and too often, we forget to be thankful.  In some way, we think that we deserve for God to be this good to us or that we have earned it by our right living.  We must learn to be thankful at all times and declare the wonderful works of God continually.  What did Jesus say about this?

Jesus reveals something interesting when He is told to make his disciples be silent:

Luke 19:40 But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.”

The rocks in creation who have done nothing but sit there from the beginning of time are thankful for who God is and would cry out giving glory to God in their own way if we they were able.  How much more should we worship Him, who have been given wisdom to see the glory and speech to say it?  David also has some interesting things to say along these lines:

Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.

Creation itself is continually declaring the glory of God just in the day to day things that happen.  Sadly, we get used to seeing the beauty of nature and it no longer impresses us.  The beauty of a sunrise is eclipsed by the fact that we have to get up early again and go to work.  We are tired and inward focused and rarely catch the beauty of God’s creation declaring His glory.  The majesty of a rain storm is drowned out by our complaints that now we are going to get wet and be uncomfortable.  Selfishness and inconvenience often cause us to overlook the glory of God being manifest in our midst.

After an extended time of bearing the punishment of their people by being in captivity in a foreign land, the people of Israel return to the land of their inheritance.  Everything is broken down and in disrepair.  Nehemiah leads the people into a time of returning to the law.  They read the law for seven days straight and agree to obey it.  They set about to keep the feasts in the word and worship God.  This is when we see the people worshiping God in a special way:

Nehemiah 9:1-3 Now on the twenty-fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, in sackcloth, and with dust on their heads. Then those of Israelite lineage separated themselves from all foreigners; and they stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers. And they stood up in their place and read from the Book of the Law of the Lord their God for one-fourth of the day; and for another fourth they confessed and worshiped the Lord their God.

The people have been reading the word for day, and this causes them to come to God in worship by repentance, confession, prayer, and fasting.  They read more of the word and then worship more, and then they begin to bless the Lord:

Nehemiah 9:5-6 “Blessed be Your glorious name, Which is exalted above all blessing and praise! You alone are the LordYou have made heaven, The heaven of heavens, with all their host, The earth and everything on it, The seas and all that is in them, And You preserve them all. The host of heaven worships You.

Your fasting is worship to God.  Your prayers are worship to God.  Your repentance and confession is declaring the glory of God.  As we spend time seeking Him and pressing into all that He has for us, true worship with come forth from our hearts and our lives that will declare God’s glory in a way that no other thing can.  How can the choice to give up a legitimate pleasure as a sacrifice give glory to God?  By this, we are saying, “Jesus, I love you more!  You are worth it!”  What joy comes to The Father’s heart when his children voluntarily give Him a gift from what little they have to give.  This is true worship and truly declares the glory of God to all the hosts of heaven.  Today, we choose to worship God once again with the sacrifice of our humble hearts.

Jesus, I choose to declare Your glory today.  In my thoughts, words, and actions, help me to recognize and declare Your glory.  Help me to continually give you worship in everything I say and do.  In all I do may I glorify Your Name!

Practical – 

  • Set a time to watch a sunrise, sunset, or spend time watching at the stars
  • Ask Holy Spirit to reveal the glory that creation is declaring to you in this
  • Commit to worship God in thought, word, and action today

Be blessed with the God given ability to recognize the glory of God in the tiniest of details.  May your very life declare the glory of God in all you think, say, and do!

Spiritual Alignment 16/40

You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!

Patience, persistence, and perseverance are words we like to avoid.  We have moved past the need for longsuffering to patience because that is a nicer way to say it.  However, longsuffering is a much more descriptive term to what is taking place.  Whatever you happen to call it, it takes work to continue in the faith of believing for your breakthrough into the next level.  I encourage you to look to Jesus from Whom comes your help.  May you be long-prospering even as you move past longsuffering.

Every single one of us are walking through this life.  No one is exempt from the troubles and hardships the world has to bring.  I would love to tell you that as you seek the Lord, you become perfect and can live somewhere in a bubble of perfect communion with God that will take you out of the world and make everything okay.  This is not the case.  In fact Jesus said:

John 17:15I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.”

At one time, the followers of Christ thought to create a separate culture like a monastery or convent that was set apart from the world, but Jesus never meant for this to happen.  You are meant to be His shining light in the middle of a dark world that many may see His light shining through you and be drawn to Him by your words and actions.  The way you respond in the same negative situations that others are going through should be a testimony to the greatness and glory of God in you. 

Sadly, we often do not handle the circumstances of life much different than the people in the world.  Because of our weak humanity, we fall into complaining, pain, despair, and even the depression and darkness that plagues the world.  This happens because our flesh and soul have not yet come into line with The Holy Spirit yet.  It is a process to ‘work out our salvation”  that we may truly become one with Him.

The heroes of the faith did not have it any easier than we do, and we even have recorded many of David’s passionate prayers and cries for help as he was going through terrifying life ordeals.  From him, we discover a key to bringing our flesh and soul into line with God’s plans and purposes even in the middle of the daily struggles.

Psalm 69:10 When they see me seeking for more of you with weeping and fasting,
they all just scoff and scorn at my passion.

Vs. 13 But I keep calling out to you, Yahweh! I know you will bend down to listen to me,
for now is the season of favor. Because of your faithful love for me, your answer to my prayer will be my sure salvation.

David reveals a secret into aligning our flesh and soul with Holy Spirit that many would pass over.  He is seeking more of God with passionate prayer and fasting.  Even when others would make fun of him for it, he is persistent.  He continues on.  David has so much confidence that God will come through to help in the situation, he does not care what others may say about his “pitiful cries for help”.  Prayer and fasting cause our soul to come into line with Holy Spirit in a way that nothing else can.  Fasting reveals our flesh and the prayer helps us give those things that arise over to God in the correct way.  These two together help us to truly become longsuffering.  A transformation begins to happen within us that creates the ability to weather the storms of this life and even be a witness in the most tragic circumstances.  This process continues as we continually seek Jesus and are changed by Him.

Jesus, I need you today.  My flesh and soul are constantly trying to pull me into world ways and earthly thinking, but I desire to be like you.  As I pray and fast, strip off the ways of the world and help me come into perfect alignment with You and Holy Spirit.  Even in the trials and tragedies of life, help me to shine brightly who You are because I run to you quickly for help in my time of need.  Give me the ability to be a true longsuffering light in the darkness!

Practical –

  • Ask Holy Spirit to help you see where He is working
  • Ask for strength and assurance that He is with you
  • Live your life with the perseverance He brings
  • Shine the glory of God in the dark situations

Be blessed today to see the glory of The Lord in the land of the living.  Even in the intense darkness, may you know He is with you and shine brightly His glory as you are propelled into the next level with Him.

What’s It Worth To You? 3/40

You are invited to join us for The Propel Fast! Please review Propelled To The Next Level and other words for the reasons behind the fast as well as daily encouragement!

Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!”

Today, I will choose to be thankful and bless The Lord no matter how my body may feel.  Right now, if you have given up food, it is normal for your body to go through some of the same symptoms of withdrawal.  Too much salt, sugar, and caffeine in our daily lives will cause headaches, nausea, achy limbs, a general feeling of weakness… as these are removed, and the body rids itself of toxins.  The good news is that these fleshly oppositions should pass today or tomorrow completely.

If you have decided to participate in this fast, the only question now is –

What’s it worth to you? 

In our daily lives, we rarely have to give up anything of true value.  However, when we do, we must calculate if it is truly worth it.  There is a great difference between when you look into your purse or wallet and decide what you will pay for a shirt, book, or meal; and when you must consider the price you would pay for college, a car, or a house.  An object is only worth as much as we are willing to give for it.  Careful thought is put into how much a man will pay for a ring because you cannot put a price on the one that you really love.

As we fast and go through the daily troubles and temptations (i.e. your boss buying your favorite lunch for everyone the first day of the fast) let us look to Jesus and consider how much He is worth to us.

Maybe this is where you find yourself today:

2 Corinthians 4:8-11 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

Troubles, persecutions, and the death of the enemy may come upon us in many different ways, but even as our flesh is delivered to death it is a necessary sacrifice to manifest the life of Jesus in our flesh! 

May the life of Jesus shine out of you today and bring glory to The Father!

Something else to think about. In the middle of a discourse on denying your flesh, Jesus asks these two questions in Mark 8:36-37: For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

What is a soul truly worth? 

Jesus bled, suffered, and died that your soul might be set free.  That is how much your soul is worth to Him.

How much is Jesus truly worth to You?

How much do you value the lost souls around you?

Jesus, I am willing to do whatever it takes and give up whatever it costs that You may be glorified and that lost souls may come into Your Kingdom!!! Help me to truly value You not just in my words but in my daily actions of obedience!

Practical –

• Read Mark 8:34-38 and contemplate the value of a soul.

• Make sure you have included a list of lost or backslidden people in your daily prayer time.

• Listen and obey when Holy Spirit brings up specific things to do for these individuals.

Be blessed to know the true value of your soul and the souls of those around you as you are propelled into the next level!!!

This Is Where The Fun Begins!!! 1/40

This is day one of the 40 day propel fast. For further understanding about this specific fast as well as some of the benefits and blessings of fasting and prayer, please read Propelled Into The Next Level.

Here, at the beginning, is where you will have the greatest expectation or greatest apprehension. This all depends upon the viewpoint you have going into the fast.

The enemy has probably already started assaulting your mind with questions like, “Are you sure you want to fast like this?” or “Are you sure you want to fast this long?” “Wouldn’t God be fine if you were not quite so extreme or radical?” The statements and questions of the enemy can cause fear to arise that will either cripple you, or cause you to see the grand adventure that is before you.  

I am reminded of a word that I got while on mission in Cambodia. Some prophetic friends had dreams of me coming back from that trip in a wheelchair. My family and friends were praying, and I took precautions in the spiritual and physical against any attack of the enemy. This did not stop me, however, from enjoying my time at a carnival in a third world country that had numerous, questionable safety concerns. This is included a giant zip line. This friend’s warning was in my mind as I climbed the tower, but I did not let it stop me from having fun… I just prayed a lot more than I normally would have.

At this moment when God is beginning a movement in your life, troubles loom before you like the star destroyers that were closing in on The Millennium Falcon, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and the other characters in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.  This is where the line is uttered by Han, “this is where the fun begins!” A great fear is before you as it was then, but there is someone (a princess) in distress that needs help!

How many souls are waiting on you to set them free from bondage by your earnest prayer and fasting?

How many nations will be transformed because of your obedience?

How will your entire family benefit from the abundant blessings poured out upon them because of your steadfast faith in action?

There is an adventure in the unknown! The expectation will cause anticipation for what will take place over the next 40 days.

Psalm 16:11
“You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

Acts 2:28
“You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your presence.”

Fun begins with The One!!! Jesus is the reason we fast!

He is our example!

He is our reason!

He is our strength!

He is our hope!

He is our fun, life, adventure, and so much more!!!

Jesus, I love you and declare that you are worth it! Bring me into Your Presence in a special way today and every day as I seek You!!!

Practical Steps – 

– Make a list of reasons why you are fasting. Isaiah 58 is a good chapter to read when gaining an understanding of why we fast.

Here. Are some of the things on my list –

 1. Souls (the lost in my sphere of influence and unreached people)

2. Wisdom, Understanding, Revelation, and Might

3. Total Eradication of The Flesh

4. Release to The Nations

5. Break the Yoke of Debt

6. Re-dig the Wells of Revival

7. Power, gifts, miracles released in me and my family

8. Full Healing and Restoration (Specific family members and friends)

9. Open Doors

– Remember your reason/reasons

– Spend special time praying, meditating, and in quiet time lifting these things up to the Lord.

Be blessed as your fun begins and as you are propelled into the next level in Him!!!

Can You Hear The Stars Singing?

It is a historic window of time we are in at the moment given that fifty years ago this week, July 16 – July 24, man first set foot on the moon with the Apollo 11 space mission. As I was sharing with my boys this morning about the moon landing that took place this day in 1969 and showing photos and video footage, the Lord began to remind me of a word He spoke on January 3rd of this year that I had typed up but never felt released to share:

During my early morning seeking time with the Lord recently, He began to speak to me and peak my wonder of creation and of the stars. As I gazed out the front window in my living room set high upon the wall, I saw the moon rising in star-mingled darkness in preparation to give way to the sun’s light. In that place, I heard the Lord say:

“The stars are testifying of the Light that is coming. Here in the night, they light up the sky with glimmers of life as a true and pure reflection of My Son rising on the horizon.

Long before the light and rays of the Son ever appear to shine upon the earth, the celestial body tells of the One Who brings light into existence.

They raise up a sound and song of light, yes, explosive light; and they gather together in a divine convergence of the emergence of the Son. Each one, though unique, tells the story of their Maker. Each one testifies of the glory and grace of the One Who fashioned them into being. An explosive power resonates throughout time and space bringing each into their purpose. Let the fire of their existence rise into a glorious bonfire of magnification.”

Job 38:4-7 (AMP)
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you know and have understanding. Who determined the measurements [of the earth], if you know? Or who stretched the [measuring] line on it? On what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God (angels) shouted for joy?”

Isaiah 44:23 (TPT)
“Sing! Starry sky above break loose with singing, for Yahweh has finished it! Shout! Earth deep below, give up your shout! Mountains high, break out with joyous songs of praise! Let the forest choirs join in, every tree singing its notes! For Yahweh has paid the ransom price for you.”

I began to feel a strong urging to release this word and I believe that this fifty year mark signifies a transformational shift in the spirit as well as in all of creation. Neil Armstrong is famously quoted for saying as he set foot on the surface of the moon, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

The Lord brought that quote to mind as I pondered on this word and I believe that He is saying, “You have entered into a divine opportunity to arise with the celestial body in the expanse of the heavens and birth a new song, a new sound, and a new magnification of the Son.

As you finish out 2019 and head into 2020, you will see an emergence of the Global Body of Christ being awakened by the Son’s Light rising upon a new dawn, a new horizon. A deep understanding of the Day of the Lord that is rising upon you will shake dead and dormant ones awake and will thrust forth Burning Ones into their destiny to reflect the Son’s Light in the earth. Just as you cannot number the stars in the sky, so too, will you be unable to number the vastness of new sound waves I am releasing through these Burning Ones as they charge forth into the night and carry with them Dawn’s Burning Light!

No longer will there be the “hard and dark places,” for I have erased that term from the very essence of vocabulary. From now on, a heralding cry will echo forth through time and space, beckoning the lost to be gathered into My bosom. The cry and song of My Burning Ones will cause the earth to tremble and the heavens to roar and pour forth Salvation’s Song! Surely, I will finish what I started!”

Psalm 148:1-6 (TPT)
The Cosmic Chorus of Praise
“Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Let the skies be filled with praise and the highest heavens with the shouts of glory! Go ahead—praise Him, all you His messengers! Praise Him some more, all you heavenly hosts! Keep it up, sun and moon! Don’t stop now, all you twinkling stars of light! Take it up even higher—up to the highest heavens, until the cosmic chorus thunders His praise! Let the entire universe erupt with praise to God. From nothing to something He spoke and created it all. He established the cosmos to last forever, and He stands behind His commands so His orders will never be revoked.”

Revelation 22:16 (AMP)
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you and to give you assurance of these things for the churches. I am the Root (the Source, the Life) and the Offspring of David, the radiant and bright Morning Star.”

Beloved, I have been saying this for what feels like ages, but the brevity of it bears an eternal witness in the heavens: THE TIME TO ARISE AND SHINE IS UPON YOU!!! THE LIGHT HAS COME!!! DO NOT WASTE ANOTHER MOMENT ON THAT WHICH DOES NOT BEAR AN ETERNAL WEIGHT AND AN ETERNAL FRUIT!!!

Isaiah 60:1-5 (AMP)
“Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come, and the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you. For in fact, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness will cover the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you [Jerusalem] and His glory and brilliance will be seen on you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes around you and see; they all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from far away, and your daughters will be looked after at their side. Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will tremble [with joy] and rejoice because the abundant wealth of the seas will be brought to you, the wealth of the nations will come to you.”

Isaiah 60:19-22 (AMP)
“The sun will no longer be your light by day, nor shall the bright glow of the moon give light to you, but the Lord will be an everlasting light for you; and your God will be your glory and splendor. Your sun will no longer set, nor will your moon wane; for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be over. Then all your people will be [uncompromisingly and consistently] righteous; they will possess the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified. The smallest one will become a thousand (a clan), and the least one a mighty nation. I, the Lord, will quicken it in its [appointed] time.”

The Thunderous Decree of His Little Ones

Yesterday I took the boys to the bookstore. I had to remind my two year old, Elam multiple times to use his inside voice as he frequently forgets the meaning of that phrase.

His favorite Bible story is Jonah. He can tell you all about it and you’ll get saved all over again! I had found a Bible storybook about the animals of the Bible and gave it to him. He was sitting in the cart reading it as I helped Azariah find a book. Elam found Jonah and began telling the story of Jonah who did not listen and obey God. I then heard him flipping through the pages and suddenly, at the top of his lungs he yelled, “IT’S JESUS!!!”

Startled at the volume of the decree that just burst forth from the mouth of my babe, I, laughing, shhh’d him to bring his volume down; but he yelled again, “IT’S JESUS! I FOUND HIM!!!”

I could hear shuffling in the aisles around us, but there was no one in sight. I realized then what kind of witness my two year old held. I also for the first time saw Elam walking out the verse the Lord gave for his life:

Isaiah 40:9-10 (TPT)
Go up on a high mountain, you joyful messengers of Zion, and lift up your voices with power. You who proclaim joyous news to Jerusalem, shout it out and don’t be afraid. Say to the cities of Judah, “Here is your God!”
“Look! Here comes Yahweh as a victorious warrior; He triumphs with His awesome power. Watch as He brings with Him His reward and the spoils of victory to give to His people.”

He is an unashamed, joyful voice shouting from the wilderness, “Behold! The Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world!”

Psalm 8:2 (TPT) says, “You have built a stronghold by the songs of babies. Strength rises up with the chorus of singing children. This kind of praise has the power to shut satan’s mouth. Childlike worship will silence the madness of those who oppose you.”

Lesson #1 for us all who are called as messengers of Truth (and that’s every believer!): THIS is who we’re called to be! My two year old in many ways is bearing more fruit for the Kingdom than much of the Church is! Many in the Body are too bound up in fear to declare the joyous News of Jesus upon the mountaintops and would allow the enemy to silence their witness (I am guilty of this myself at times.)

If God builds strongholds upon the praises of His Little Ones that destroys the voice of the accuser, HOW MUCH MORE should we obediently come as Jesus stated, like children before Him?!

It is these ones who will inherit the Kingdom of God!!!

Lesson #2: Never cease to declare the Word of the Lord over your children! You are shaping their destiny through your decrees and actions; and it WILL bear fruit in ALL seasons, whether you see it or not!

Jesus! Make us like children! Help us to decree destiny and to declare Your coming!!! May we shout with a loud voice, “IT’S JESUS! I FOUND HIM!!!”

The Send: Ask for the Nations!

On Wednesday of last week during my prayer time in preparation for The Send, I was led by Holy Spirit to begin praying out and prophesying Psalm 68.

Psalm 68:1 (TPT)
“God! Arise with awesome power, and every one of Your enemies will scatter in fear!”
V. 3-4 – “But let all Your godly lovers be glad! Yes, let them all rejoice in Your Presence and be carried away with gladness. Let them laugh and be radiant with joy! Let them sing their celebration-songs for the coming of the Cloud Rider Whose name is Yah!” 

I began to see in this passage what He has been showing me for some time as He rides among the clouds, among the wave that is coming. We as His Sent Ones have a reason to rejoice as He not only has gone before us, but He leads the charge, and also goes with us covering us as we GO! 

52918044_561744404302125_2580283447968792576_n

THIS is what adoption looks like! Love was released at The Send. Andy and Holly Byrd and their children are such a pure and holy example of the adoptive heart of the Father.

The next few verses really got me and happen to be completely in line with what took place at The Send. We committed to take up at least one mission field to accomplish His commission in the earth and to see it set ablaze: Neighborhoods, High Schools, Universities, ending the orphan crisis and placing all orphans into homes through the Spirit of Adoption, and finally, the nations. None of this can be accomplished if we do not Carry His Love with us. We are the Harbingers of Hope going into all the earth to declare that LOVE IS ON THE WAY!!!

As you read these next passages, I strongly encourage you if you haven’t already, to read them slowly and really allow them to sink in until they mark you and become your reality unto commission and action marked with compassion.

V. 5-6 – To the fatherless He is a Father. To the widow He is a Champion Friend. To the lonely He makes them part of a family. To the prisoners He leads into prosperity until they sing for joy. This is our Holy God in His Holy Place! But for the rebels there is heartache and despair.”
V. 7-8 – “O Lord, it was You Who marched in front of Your people, leading them through the wasteland. The earth shook beneath Your feet; the Heavens filled with clouds before the Presence of the God of Sinai. The sacred mountain shook at the sight of the face of Israel’s God.”

These are the desires of His heart; to be a Father to the orphans, a Faithful Lover and Husband to the lonely and widows, a Restorer of families, a Liberator, Provider, and Joy-giver. The beautiful thing in all of this is that He has called us to partner with Him to establish these desires into reality and fruitfulness!

It was in the secret place of prophesying these things forth into existence that I got to verse 9 and 10. I began to see the manifestation of a small cluster of clouds swirling into a culmination of storm clouds as with Elijah in 1 Kings 18. Then a song came forth,

The winds are blowing, do you feel it now, do you feel it now?
The clouds are stirring, do you perceive it now, do you perceive it now?
The storm is rolling in, do you hear it now, do you hear it now?
The rains are here, can you feel it upon your skin now?

V. 9-10 – “You, O God, sent the reviving rain upon Your weary inheritance, showers of blessing to refresh it. So there Your people settled. And in Your kindness You provided the poor with abundance.”

I believe we saw this storm manifest at The Send. Within the first 10 minutes of being there, I found myself unable to stand under the weight of His Presence and the awareness of His nearness in that stadium left me trembling, crumpled in a ball on the turf crying out, “HOLY!” During that precious moment, I recognized something in my altered state of being present among thousands of Burning Ones and being wholly and solely in the Throneroom before my King. A single drop upon my head. That single drop resided with me the entire day. I knew the rains would come; and indeed, they did.

Sixty thousand lovers stood out in the ridiculous heat, and having spent the majority of the time on the turf (including being unable to replenish water sources for some time), we did indeed become a parched and weary people; yet all persisted unwaveringly before the Lamb Who is worthy! I truly believe the persistence bore fruit. There came a moment when we cried out to Him for the nations and gave Him our “YES!”, that we would GO! Following this marking moment came a transition that was obvious in the Spirit. We gave Him our adoration and as a blessing, He fulfilled His promise to send His reviving rains. In the physical as well as the spiritual, they felt to be strengthening and refreshing unto commissioning.

When He sends the rains of His Spirit and of outpouring, we must recognize it as a holy, marking moment and abide in it until The Sending. 

Back a few days before when I had been prophesying Psalm 68, I had no idea what He planned to do; and I am left reeling and in a perpetual state of awe and wonder. At the time of praying those words forth, the Lord led me to the page before in Psalm 67. I believe that this was the release after the rains!

Psalm 67 (TPT)
“God, keep us near Your mercy-fountain and bless us! And when You look down on us, may Your face beam with joy!”

V. 2-5 – “SEND US OUT ALL OVER THE WORLD SO THAT EVERYONE EVERYWHERE WILL DISCOVER YOUR WAYS AND KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND SEE YOUR POWER TO SAVE.
Let all the nations burst forth with praise; let everyone everywhere love and enjoy You!
Then how glad the nations will be when You are their King. They will sing, they will shout, for You give true justice to the people. Yes! You, Lord, are the Shepherd of the nations! 
No wonder the peoples praise You! Let all the people praise You more!”

V. 6-7 – THE HARVEST OF THE EARTH IS HERE! God, the very God we worship, keeps us satisfied at His banquet of blessings. And the blessings keep coming!
Then all the ends of the earth will give Him the honor He deserves and be in awe of Him!”

This is The Send. 

We believe that a wave was started that day and that it was only the beginning on the war on inaction. The rains of outpouring were only a glimpse in the coming world-wide Jesus movement. Today, we along with 18,000 others at The Send and world-wide have begun a 40-day Jesus Fast from March 1-April 9 to contend for Jesus, The Evangelist to sweep across the nations. I ask that you join us, for He is worthy of our sacrifice and our worship! The earth is awaiting this wave of fiery sons and daughters; they are awaiting Jesus, The Evangelist! You can go to the link above to sign up as a commitment, find out more information, tips, encouragements, and daily devotionals we will be going through across the globe.

It is promised us in Psalm 133, where there is unity, He commands a blessing! What we do in seizing this kairos moment will mark the futures of our children and shift the world in which they will live in. My prayer is that they enter a world that is on fire for Jesus in manifestation of Luke 12:49.

Please join us in praying these things forth and know that no nation is too dark for Jesus to reach! Set your face like flint in prayer, action, being His hands and feet; and do not relent until there’s breakthrough!!!

Psalm 2:7-9 (TPT)
“I will reveal the eternal purpose of God. For He has decreed over me, ‘You are My favored Son. And as your Father I have crowned you as My King Eternal. Today I became your Father. Ask Me to give you the nations and I will do it, and they shall become your legacy. Your domain will stretch to the ends of the earth. And you will shepherd them with unlimited authority, crushing their rebellion as an iron rod smashes jars of clay!'”

To the ends of the earth,
Katie, Pure Fire of Yahweh
