Watchmen: Time for the Un-trenching!

This weekend while in a service, I was dwelling on a word released by prophet Jeremiah Johnson, “The Year of the Watchmen”. He shared a word God had been speaking to him for 2019 out of Isaiah 56:9-12; he said, “God begins to rebuke the watchmen of Israel for their failure in fulfilling their assignment to the nation. I believe that in 2019, God has revealed to me that He is going to begin to deal with the watchmen (prophets, leaders and intercessors) who are failing their assignments in their various nations of the earth.”

Isaiah 56:9-12 (TPT)
“All you wild beasts, come and devour, you wild animals of the forest. Blind watchmen, all of them! They have no revelation knowledge; they’re like dumb dogs that don’t even bark — dreaming, sleeping, devoted to slumber. They’re greedy dogs that never eat enough. And the shepherds have no discernment; they follow their own desires. Every last one of them seeks his own profit. Each one says, ‘Let’s get wine and liquor and have a party! And tomorrow, more of the same, except even better!'”

He then shared the 10 Indictments that God has against His watchmen from this passage:

  1. The watchmen are blind.
  2. The watchmen know nothing.
  3. The watchmen are dumb dogs unable to bark.
  4. The watchmen are dreamers lying down.
  5. The watchmen love to slumber.
  6. The watchmen are greedy dogs.
  7. The watchmen are never satisfied.
  8. The watchmen are shepherds without understanding.
  9. The watchmen have turned to their own way.
  10. The watchmen enjoy unjust gain.

With what the Lord has been revealing to me regarding the events of this day and age and His deep longing for His sons and daughters to awaken to that for which they were created, I began digging deep within myself as a watchman asking the Lord to check me. Oh, Lord, let there be nothing in me that would provoke You to have any indictment against me!!! I then began praying for His watchmen when the preacher during the service I was in started to speak about 2 Chronicles 7:14. It is probably one of the most notably referenced verses in the Bible when things are tough. He shed a new light on the verse that I feel is so timely in the awakening that God is wanting to bring forth.

(AMP) “And if MY people, who are called by MY Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.” 

God does not say here, “if those sinners who know not of Me”, or “those who call themselves by My name will humble themselves, pray, and seek My face.” He says, “MY PEOPLE, who are CALLED BY MY NAME.” This in and of itself abolishes the false doctrine and deception instilled in much of the Body of Christ that it’s all the sinner’s fault what is happening to our nation. His demand is not an expectation that the world in sin would be the one to come to Him and petition Him to turn things around; it’s HIS PEOPLE! No, this does not absolve the world of their sins and responsibility to give an account to God for such things. However, it is the responsibility and expectation He has of His people to stand up against anything that opposes Him and to fall to their knees on behalf of their nation and people in Repentance. It is to hold their post and perform their God-given commission of warning the people of impending danger, sounding the alarm, and coming before the King of Kings, waging war on inaction.

I went to the altar praying and interceding for the watchmen in this hour to awaken and arise. I then heard Him say, “It’s time to come out of the trenches!”

I was then taken into a vision where I was lifted above the United States and was looking down upon it as if it were a map. I saw darkness begin to surround the country and a thick black line appeared to outline the United States and grow darker. When the entire nation was outlined, God began to show me the designated gateways and portals in the spirit realm all around the country; but they suddenly began to glow black as ink would bleed on a piece of paper when water is poured out upon it. Darkness started to infiltrate the gateways and overthrow them. God’s indictment against the watchmen holds true in this time and hour. They once stood at their command post guarding the gateways from and closing them to all demonic infiltration; and opening the portals completely to Heaven. Eventually these watchmen began to fall from their high posts because of the ten reasons in Isaiah 56; and the enemy saw an opportunity to take advantage of in an effort to gain the upper hand. 

Then He said, These watchmen have cast down their God-given keys of authority to open and shut, having given in to the forces of darkness seen at a distance. Their inaction gave way for darkness to invade through these portals. Demonic forces from all over the earth have seen the vulnerability of the nation and are flocking to America to take advantage of the abandoned and weak gateways. There is demonic congestion in many gateways from the amount of principalities trying to wedge themselves in through the narrow gates; so much so that many Heavenly/angelic forces are being caught behind this hindrance.

All of this is being allowed to go on as some gatekeepers sit at the doorway, heavily slumbering. The keys to shut the demonic realm lay unused and the keys to unlock the Heavenly realm remain forgotten. Many gatekeepers have grown weary of the warfare and upholding that which is right and pure. Many have been stationed at their posts for ages and have grown weary maintaining their post alone because they have failed to train up the successors to help carry the weight of the call. They have even failed to station guards along the wall. Some have also refused to partner with the next generation of gatekeepers because they are stuck on one method and anticipation of My movements; instead of realizing that the warfare tactics must change as what Holy Spirit is doing changes in this day. 

It is time to awaken and stop allowing indifference to lull the gatekeepers asleep! I say to you gatekeepers, ‘Do not be deceived for one moment to think that you are not responsible for what is taking place in your land! Your inaction has welcomed the realm of hell into your nation and invited in demonic forces from all across the earth to invade your borders. The shroud of darkness and congestion of evil shoving its way through your doors has blocked much of the Heavenly assistance that you so desperately need. Indeed, the Prince of Persia has blocked My way.

AWAKE AND ARISE to your posts and beckon Heaven to come to your aid! Take up your keys of authority in your hands again! DESERTION IS NOT AN OPTION! PASSIVITY IS NOT AN OPTION! INDIFFERENCE IS NOT AN OPTION! SLUMBERING IS NOT AN OPTION! Jonah failed at his attempt in all of these things. It’s TIME FOR THE RECOMMITTAL!  Cleanse yourselves of all unrighteousness, for I require pure and clean eyes. Yes, I require a Righteous Watchman to guard your walls so that every level of demonic activity attempting to come at you will be exposed from afar off!'”

Ezekiel 22:23-31 (AMP)
“And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, say to her: ‘You are a land that is not cleansed or rained on in the day of indignation.’ The conspiracy of her prophets in her midst is like a roaring lion tearing the prey; they have devoured people; they have taken treasure and precious things; they have made many widows in her midst. Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them. Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain.
Her prophets plastered them with untempered mortar, seeing false visions, and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord had not spoken. The people of the land have used oppressions, committed robbery, and mistreated the poor and needy; and they wrongfully oppress the stranger.
So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; BUT I FOUND NO ONE.
 Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads,” says the Lord God.”

Our land is overrun with evil on a grand scale; much like what we read in this passage from Ezekiel 22, especially if you read the entire chapter. Most incriminating, I believe is the flippant mass murder of our most vulnerable, His Little Ones. We must not leave God gazing out upon our soil and our churches only to find complacent, impotent, slumbering, indifferent deserters who have abandoned their God-ordained posts and destiny! We cannot leave Him saying that He found NO ONE! May a deep and great conviction come upon the hearts of His watchmen in this hour that would awaken all out of drunken, apathetic stupors; and to join together to awaken each other. 

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 16:18-19 (TPT)
“I give you the name Peter, a stone. And this truth of who I am will be the bedrock foundation on which I will build My church—My legislative assembly, and the power of death will not be able to overpower it!
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.

Isaiah 28:5-6 (TPT)
“In that day, Lord Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies, will be a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty for the remnant of His people. He will be a Spirit of Justice for judges to render right decisions. And He will be strength and bravery for those who turn back the battle at the gate.

Hebrews 10:38-39 (AMP)
“But My righteous one [the one justified by faith] shall live by faith [respecting man’s relationship to God and trusting Him]; and if he draws back [shrinking in fear], My soul has no delight in him. But our way is not that of those who shrink back to destruction, but [we are] of those who believe [relying on God through faith in Jesus Christ, the Messiah] and by this confident faith preserve the soul.

Beloved, it is going to take every watchman arising to their position of authority, keys in one hand, sword in the other; to combat and defend our land and people from the enemy’s plots. We can no longer sit back and expect someone else to do our job. It is the responsibility of His watchmen to guard and protect His house, defend the Gospel standing unwaveringly on the Truth of His Word, and guarding the holiness of His house as well as our own heart, mind, and body. The dormant coals need to be stoked into a raging flame again! It is our duty to guide His people along the correct path, speaking His Word at His direction. Finally, it is our greatest conviction to keep watch for our Master’s Return, inform the people, and to open the gates that He may come in. We do not draw back in fear that brings destruction, but press in and press forward to the full salvation, healing, and deliverance of the soul!  

Lastly, I leave you with a charge to be His undaunted watchman at all cost. I encourage you to pray out loud this word below in a bold declaration to God in faith and against the forces of hell; inserting your territory, people, inheritance, and land into the underlined word. May you fight until the very end for all that He has entrusted you with.

Be warned, I shall uphold my sacred oath to protect this realm as its gatekeeper. If your return threatens the safety of Asgard, my gate will remain shut…”
Heimdall, the gatekeeper, from the movie, Thor

In His name,

What Will Reverse the Curse on America?

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

dsc_0382 (1)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SIGN THE PETITION: THE MORAL OUTCRY

The NOW Harvest: Part 2

A few days ago, I shared the first part of a Word that the Lord revealed out of John 4 called, The NOW Harvest: Part 1. To gain insight and further understanding into what I will be sharing in this post, you can read the post in the link above. Today, I will be sharing the rest of the revelation out of John 4 as well as the Word the Lord spoke in my quiet time with Him.

In the first post, we went through the encounter in John 4 after Jesus met with the Samaritan woman at the well. As He revealed His true identity to her, His disciples returned with His lunch. Urging Him to eat, He responded that His nourishment comes from doing the will of the One Who sent Him and bringing it to completion. Verse 35 in The Passion Translation says, Look at all the people coming—NOW is harvest time! For their hearts are like vast fields of ripened grain—READY for a spiritual harvest.” (emphasis added)  I shared earlier this past week in the post, Time for the Accelerated Ascent, about a dream that I had in which the Lord revealed the size of the Harvest and that the totality of His harvesters had yet to awaken to the reality that the time is NOW! When reading this passage, I was overwhelmed once again with the heart of the Father for the arising and awakening of His harvesters. He began to speak to me saying,

My daughter, the Harvest is so ripe, it is over-ripe! Oh, how I long to release the Harvest in mounting proportions! Partner with Me in reaping the reward and join in on the Great Blessing and Mighty Celebration! Together we will change things and turn it all around! Glory and Fire is rising like a fresh wave. A new sound is crescendoing upon the waves that will shake the nations awake! Do you hear the sound? Do you see what it carries upon its wings? Awakening is coming and indeed, IT IS HERE NOW! WAKE UP and RISE UP, oh, Burning Ones! Destiny be released today!!!

Beloved, we must stop begging God to come and rain down on us. The reality is His rains of Revival have already been released unto us. Joel 2:23 speaks of this. This is a time where the divine convergence of the former and the latter rains birth a synergy of outpouring and His Spirit floods the nations. Joel also makes it plainly clear in verse 12-13“Even now,” says the Lord“Turn and come to Me with all your heart [in genuine repentance], with fasting and weeping and mourning [until every barrier is removed and the broken fellowship is restored]; rip your heart to pieces [in sorrow and contrition] and not your garments. Now return [in repentance] to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness [faithful to His covenant with His people]; and He relents [His sentence of] evil [when His people genuinely repent].” The point of this is that the totality of the rains of His Spirit have already descended into the earthly realm, for it is His Spirit that abides in us. It is our duty to cry out for a mighty action and demonstration to be released through His Harvesters. Jesus understood that fasting precedes an outpouring. Fasting prepares the way for the Harvest. Fasting separates the wheat from the tares. For over a year, the Lord has been asking me, “How hungry are you?”

So, I must ask you, how hungry are you? Are you willing to forsake the temporary nourishment to reap an eternal reward of souls?

John 4:36 in The Passion Translation says, “And everyone who reaps these souls for eternal life will receive a reward. And those who plant spiritual seeds and those who reap the harvest will celebrate together with great joy!” The Message says, 36-38 “The Harvester isn’t waiting. He’s taking his pay, gathering in this grain that’s ripe for eternal life. Now the Sower is arm in arm with the Harvester, triumphant. That’s the truth of the saying, ‘This one sows, that one harvests.’ I sent you to harvest a field you never worked. Without lifting a finger, you have walked in on a field worked long and hard by others.”

The reality is, if the Bride of Christ had awaken from its slumbering state years ago, even after the persecution of the Church spread thousands of years ago, and had arisen to the authority that Jesus bestowed upon all Believers when He ascended and His Spirit and fire fell, the entirety of the world would’ve been saved long ago. John speaks of this truth to the seven churches in Revelation 2-3. I believe much of the Body is in the same state of the Church in Sardis in Revelation 3.

It is time to WAKE UP! The Harvester is not waiting, He is going to gather what is His; but He desires, and in fact longs for us to join Him in a Precious Partnership! The word “sent” in verse 38 is the Greek word, “apostello”, where we get the word apostle. It means, “to send forth as a messenger, to commission.” This is an outright commission from Jesus to go out and harvest what was not ours to plant. Jesus, Himself said that others have gone ahead and put forth the labor and OUR JOB IS TO REAP! Who wouldn’t want to do that?!?!

I have seen this harvest, this new wave. I have heard the thunder of the feet of the souls to be harvested stampeding upon the waves. I have heard the roar of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah bellowing forth His voice, calling His mighty army to rise, fight, and reap! I have seen the fire in His eyes that burns for the nations, that burns for souls.

My prayer for you today is that you would receive this word, either for the first time, or anew. I pray that you would seek out to reap the harvest with intentionality, pursue His Presence increasingly, counting the cost and determining that the sacrifice is so worth it to the Glory of the One Who gave His life for us. I pray that you would draw near to Him so close that the same fire that rages in His eyes and heart for the nations, the Harvest, would sear your very being and brand you with His consuming fire of Love. All unto the commissioning of power and transformation.

I strongly urge you to listen to these songs below and let the power and love of Jesus mark you, set you apart, empower you, and commission you afresh into partnering with Him in the Third Great Awakening that IS coming soon!

Out of the Pit

Daily Encouragement –

Do you feel like you are missing something? Is something trying to hold you back and drag you down? Do you feel lifeless and powerless where you are? 

I am the Deliverer and Bringer of True Life!!! I am the One Who sets free, saves, and gives you a reason to praise Me!!! I do not set you free for personal gain, but because you are in bondage and need help. I love you completely and desire for you to walk in complete freedom. 

I will pull you out of your pit as you call out to Me. True repentance causes Me to discard and disregard your sin no matter the grievance. The blood of Jesus truly takes away the corrupt sin that would cause you to drown in death. Jesus paid the price for you that you may come close and receive all the fullness of life I have for you. 

Come to Me and receive true freedom. Walk in life, and praise The One Who made the way for you to live. I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 38:17, 19 “Indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back… 
The living, the living man, he shall praise You, As I do this day; The father shall make known Your truth to the children.”

Made Righteous

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. Do you know the gift I have given you in repentance? Through the blood of Jesus, you have the opportunity to be set free, cleansed, restored, and made right before Me. 

Though your sin is dark and disgusting, Jesus’ blood made the way for you to be fully righteous before Me. This is the starting place for the atmosphere of revival to rule and reign. 

The power of Holy Spirit within you is held back by unclean and unrighteous vessels. Even a little impurity holds back the fullness of what I want to do. 

Come to Me and confess, and I will forgive and cleanse you fully. Then, the full power of Holy Spirit will be made ready and available. 

Ask for it, and you will receive more than you ever thought possible because that is who I am. I love you My child!!!

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 

Luke 11:9-13 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 
10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 
11 If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? 
12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 
13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” 

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Know the Truth

Our time in Cambodia was different from every other place that God has taken us to, as has been the pattern of our journey thus far.  One of the things that remain the same is that God never fails to bring about God appointments where ever we go.

This little guy decided to join us on the bus and fell asleep on me.

This little guy decided to join me on the bus and fell asleep on me.

Last Saturday, Jeremiah and I went to an internet cafe for breakfast so we could do some work.  Soon after ordering drinks, the electricity went off and we found ourselves in the presence of a woman trying to get us to buy cookies to benefit the children of Cambodia. Jeremiah asked her what they do for the children and she said that they do a reading program. Jeremiah responded, saying that we believe unless you are helping them spiritually as well, you are not really helping them at all.  She said that they do help them spiritually, that they too were Christians.  She then invited us to her church for service on Sunday morning.  Later on that evening, Jeremiah said that he felt that there was an open door with this woman and we would go to her church.  Though no one on the base had heard of this church, we made a deal that we would try and find it and if not, we would have church together.

After a little trouble finding the church (It was not at Omega Hotel, but at Alpha Hotel…perhaps we should have started at the beginning and not the end,)  we arrived at the small gathering of people all dressed in the same white clothing.  Their church service consisted of watching and partaking in a pre-taped service from the Philippines, at their home church.  It did not take long for us to realize that this was no ordinary church service, but it was in fact, a cult that we had been invited to.  There were so many red flags within the first 10 minutes and throughout the 3 hour service.  During the service, I asked Jeremiah several times about leaving, but he said he felt there was someone to talk to.

The pastor of the church essentially spoke a message of repentance, through instilling fear that without repenting, horrible things would occur.  That you must repent and your life has to be completely given over to the Father and King, and live accordingly to the will of the Father.  He also spoke primarily on God’s love, reading all of 1 Corinthians 13.  Through many things, this man had now become the “Appointed Son of God”; basically, Jesus had not finished the work. Jesus came for the Jews, but God had appointed him to come for the Gentiles.  After the service, the leader of the church tried to get us to come to a meeting to hear more but he would not share the beliefs, saying that it was too complicated.

The Truth is, what Jesus preached was not complicated.  It is simple and made for everyone to understand. God sent us there to speak Truth where there was deception.  No, we did not see a change immediately, but planting Truth will always win out in the end, because Jesus is The Way, THE TRUTH, and The Life.  The problem with this cult and many others is that the people heard the message one man was given through spoken word, dreams and visions, and they followed him. There was no Bible there during his time of receiving this.  The Bible says ‘the enemy disguises himself as an angel of light’ (2 Cor. 11:14).  Paul warns us over and over again in Romans to beware of false prophets and teachers.  Though this man taught from Scripture, he was not teaching the whole Bible and from the Lord, thus leading 6 million people astray.

The point of the photo always stood out to me.

The point of this always got me.

 Joshua 1:8 instructs us toStudy this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.”  We must study and know the Bible by spending time with God and receiving revelation from Him. Then when the enemy comes, we will be able to recognize it and bring to light what is moving in the darkness.  Have you given yourself wholly to studying the Word and receiving all the God wants to give you through it?  Are you familiar with the Truth and able to discern when something is not Biblical?  If not, I urge you to learn the Truth; and the best way to do this is by spending time with Jesus and reading His Word and receive the life and joy that comes from this devotion!!!

A Nation-shaking Generation on the Rising

The Lord has been reminding me lately of why I am here, of who I am, and of the simplicities that He taught me about a year ago today.  He brought to mind Jeremiah 1:4-9: The Lord gave me this message: “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.  Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” “O Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I can’t speak for You! I’m too young!”  The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you.  And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you.  I, the Lord, have spoken!” Then the Lord reached out and touched my mouth and said, “Look, I have put My words in your mouth!”  It was with this word that God urged Jeremiah to look beyond himself and to look to the importance of the task that he was called to fulfill.  Even as God commissioned Jeremiah, He has also commissioned us for the same purpose.  We must live our life intentionally and with an agenda because we were designed with an agenda written on our hearts…and that is to be Nation-shakers!!!

Jesus was a Nation-shaker.  Jesus said to the disciples in Luke 12:49, “I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled.”  Jesus is the ultimate fire starter, but He yearns for revival fire to already be spread across the earth when He comes and the only way that will happen is if we become those fire starters.  Too often we get caught up in the limitations the enemy puts on us and we miss out on all that God is calling us to accomplish.  Just as Jeremiah was caught up in seeing his age as limitation, it’s easy to fall into the same lie.  However, William Pitt said it magnificently, “We’re too young to realize certain things are impossible. Which is why we do them anyway.”  Children don’t see the impossibilities that we cling to.  When a child has a goal in mind, they stop at nothing until they accomplish it.  This is the faith and determination we all should be walking in as children of God!

If not now, when?  If not us, who?  Esther faced this same choice.  Either she would stand up and not be silent anymore but answer the call with the heart response, “If I perish, I perish.”  Or she would remain silent, reformation would come from someone else, somewhere else and she would miss the call having lived her life for nothing.  Paul had it right when he said in Philippians 1:21, “For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better.” 

The amazing thing is that God’s given each one of us Holy Ghost ideas of creativity!  What is your gifting(s)?  What specifically is your calling?  Have you asked God lately to be specific on what your place is in the Kingdom?  He has given each of us Kingdom gifts to bring forth the advancement of His Presence upon the earth!  To bring forth the revival He has been stirring in this generation.  It’s been spoken prophetically over this generation for years that this is the chosen generation.  Are you going to walk in the fullness of it or sit by and let it come from somewhere else, just as it had to when Moses led the Israelites to the Promised Land but it was Joshua that was elected to lead them into the Promised Land.  It’s time for the dreamers to awaken to the reality of Heaven invading earth! Be radical! He’s ready to revive and reform.  He’s given us GRACE (the divine infusion of God’s enablement to see to it that you fulfill your destiny and all the devils in hell cannot stop it from being a reality because you have embraced Jesus!)  Before this can occur, we must come before Him with a humble heart and joyful repentance.  It removes every obstacle that would hold us back from the fullness of what Jesus died to release in our lives.  Then get ready for the most fulfilling, joyful ride of your life into your destiny!

Blessings of Fire!
