Revival in our Bondage 29/40

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!

Well done! We have completed week 4 and moving on to week 5. As we grow nearer to ending the fast, I want to remind you to refocus and recommit to press in to Jesus like never before.  Do not grow weary in well doing, we are not the coasting type of community.  I encourage you not to coast the rest of the way through the fast.  The last 10 days of the fast, let’s really go after what God has for us. Personally, I am being led to go much deeper in the last 10 days and I would invite you to join me, if you are willing.  It is time to increase expectation, increase seeking Him, advance in every area and increase in the spiritual reward of sowing into The Kingdom!!!

A few days ago, I started a discussion, that was not planned, with a word Revelation of Truth.  This led to the discussion Repent and Worship, and now we are finally coming to what we really want to talk about. Revival. This is what we long to happen. We crave for the revival we have heard about and maybe seen in part to come to us, our family, neighborhood, region, and nation.  We hunger for an unprecedented move of God that brings in multiple billion soul harvests.

How will this take place? 

What brings revival?

As the revelation of Truth comes forth from God, we must respond rightly in repentance which is an act of worship to God.  This leads to revival taking place right where we are.  Let’s return to Ezra to find out more. If you remember, the people of Israel were led back to their homeland after release from captivity. They were in bondage because of their constant rebellion against God and his plans. Ezra was the spiritual leader at this time and Nehemiah was more of an administrative leader who was walking deeply with The Lord!  

Ezra 9:4-5 Then everyone who trembled at the words of the God of Israel assembled to me, because of the transgression of those who had been carried away captive, and I sat astonished until the evening sacrifice. At the evening sacrifice I arose from my fasting; and having torn my garment and my robe, I fell on my knees and spread out my hands to the Lord my God…

The remnant of God’s people that were allowed to remain in the land had continued in the same sins that had led the people into captivity in the first place.  The revelation of truth had been so implanted in Ezra’s heart that when he saw the people engaging in rebellion and sin it shocked and grieved him to his very core. He quickly goes to God in humility, repentance, and fasting. It seems he is so grieved that he cannot even pray for the rest of the day. The passage that follows is a small part of his prayer of repentance:

Ezra 9:8-9 And now for a little while grace has been shown from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage. For we were slaves. Yet our God did not forsake us in our bondage; but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.

Ezra acknowledges his sin and the sin of the people, but also recognizes that even in the midst of their bondage to sin, God has given them “a measure of revival”.  There was a righteous remnant in Israel that were seeking the Lord. Even though the majority of the people were living in continued disobedience and rebellion, the people of God seeking Him and crying out for mercy brought about a revival and restoration in the land that would not have taken place any other way.  They had been given favor, protection, direction, and provision not only to return to their homeland, but to repair the house of God and rebuild the ruins of their city. 

Ezra 10:1-2 Now while Ezra was praying, and while he was confessing, weeping, and bowing down before the house of God, a very large assembly of men, women, and children gathered to him from Israel; for the people wept very bitterly. And Shechaniah… said to Ezra, “We have trespassed against our God… yet now there is hope in Israel in spite of this.

Ezra and the people all have the same revelation of truth. However, Ezra and a few certain others are the righteous remnant that see the sin and seek the Lord in humility, repentance, fasting, and prayer.  They are walking in a small portion of revival even though the rest of the people are still in bondage to their sin. Ezra and the remnant’s example of right response, repentance, and revival of heart and soul lead the people to repentance themselves. As they gather in weeping, repentance, and worship before the Lord, one of the leaders gains the revelation that there is hope for revival for them all right where they are.  

This is my encouragement for all of us today. We have constant revelation of Truth from Holy Spirit as we seek Him.  May we seek to respond rightly in repentance, confession, and worship. As we do this, we will be walking in revival in our own lives no matter what may be going on around us. Walking continually in this place, God is able to use us as catalysts to bring about revival in those around us. May we all walk as the catalysts of revival in The Kingdom, sons and daughters that we were created to be.  

Jesus, I desire to be your true child constantly moving forward in right response to Your continuous revelation. As I walk out revival right where I am, use me as a catalyst for change in the world for Your Kingdom!

Practical –

  • Ask Holy Spirit to help you stand firm and walk out the revelation of a Truth he has given you
  • Acknowledge sin and weakness and bring these to him in repentance and confession
  • Act in the obedience of standing firm in seeking Jesus and walking with Him

Be blessed to receive new revelation of Truth today, walk in the right response of repentance and worship, and be a change agent of revival right where you are as God propels you into new levels with Him!

Forgiveness in “Failure” 6/40

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!

After the revelation of the importance of The 40, it seems necessary to remind ourselves who God is.  I have always been hardcore and radical about everything I do, and some people may mistake my intensity for harshness.

Exodus 34:6-7 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, 

Here, God tells Moses He would show him His glory, and this is what happens.  The nature of God that he saw was mercy, grace, patience, goodness, truth, and forgiveness.

During The 40, it is quite probable that you may mess up or give in to temptation at some point.  I have even had a dream that I was eating meat.  In the dream, I was horrified because I was supposed to be fasting.

Remember this, God looks at and judges your heart. When your heart is to commit yourself to Him in love and obedience, He forgives the mistakes and rewards your intentions.  In contrast to this, the enemy will try to make you feel like a failure and use this tactic to pull you out of The 40.  There is forgiveness in “failure” and grace in the mistakes.

If your heart is set to seek The Lord, do not let anything hold you back from seeking Him:

Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

We are looking to Jesus in the middle of our struggles, sins, and failures; and He will reward our hearts.

I think it was two years ago that my Dad was having a lot of pain in his knee and was thinking about getting it replaced. God prompted me to volunteer to fast and pray with Him for healing.  My Dad was a little reluctant and told me he wanted to pray about it first.  About a month later, I found out that from that time, he had no more pain or trouble with his knee.  This was a blessing for me to see how God honored my heart. Even though I did not really want to go through the fast, I was willing, and God worked because of that willingness.

I share this story as an encouragement to you that in the event any mistake might be made.  Press on!  Keep going!  Do not give up on The 40!  God forgives completely and can cause you to walk in the fullness of The 40 if your heart is to press in and please Him. 

Please know, this also applies to those who are not physically able to go The 40.  If you started on only water and have to shift your fast because of health issues, keep your heart right.  In doing this, God will help you continue in the same power of The 40 even if it has to change. 

Jesus, bless us with success and bring forgiveness for what others may see as failure.  Help my heart to be set totally to praise, honor, and glorify You!

Practical – 

  • Ask God to reveal any area of weakness and to strengthen you with His mercy.
  • Any area of supposed failure to keep The 40, ask God to forgive you and recommit to press in to Him.
  • Walk The 40 in full assurance that God is with you to help, strengthen, and even restore you if you fall.

May you be blessed to fully complete The 40 whether by God’s strength and sustenance or by forgiveness and restoration!!!

When Jesus Comes to Town

As I stated in my post on Saturday titled, The Lost Relics of the Simple Gospel and Our Testimony, I will be sharing more today more about my recent trip to Spain. I have been sharing amazing testimonies of what God did while we were there as well as lessons along the way that apply to our everyday life and walk with the Lord.

69F8C63B-E80B-4023-9F2C-34EDA2433C60Our last Friday there, my partner, John and I were scheduled to do something we had not originally planned nor expected to do on the trip; aiding to the major summation of the entire trip…expect the unexpected! We had been told from Pastor Pablo and Elsa, the pastors we paired off with for the two weeks, that there was a couple in the church who were going through marital issues and the husband wanted a divorce. When informing us of this as we headed to another visit earlier in the week, they had asked us if we would meet with them and minister to them to try and bring some kind of reconciliation and restoration. We agreed and prayed for the Lord to do the work and that we would simply be vessels for His power and truth to flow through.

The night prior was when we had ministered and shared the Gospel at a home meeting and three people gave their hearts and lives to Jesus, as shared in the post linked above. Afterward, we went out to a late dinner at the mall nearby and our pastors informed us that the following evening would be when we would meet with the couple. Using Google Translate, they began to fill us in on the issues that had taken place in the marriage and it left us shocked and praying for divine wisdom in how to proceed. There were supposed deep strongholds and strong demonic influence and accusations, with a lot of blanks to fill in.

As Friday ensued, we anticipated that great deliverance and inner healing would need to take place; and in prayer and discussion, we both felt led to call upon our team member, Kirk, to join us as he is well trained in sozo ministry. We had the prayers of our entire team with us. Our friend, Israel, picked us up and would be our translator for the meeting. In sharing, he revealed what he had been told in preparation for the meeting; and our shock grew greater, as did our prayers for direction. We also discovered the discrepancies through translations were not entirely lining up; therefore, we were a bit unsure of what we were walking into.

We met with the couple at the church and then separated them to talk to the husband in private; with the intention of getting to the heart of the matter where he was concerned. He was open and as far as we were concerned, he did not hide any details. In fact, Pastor told us that when he heard that our team was coming to Spain, he began to feel a lack of peace and eventually asked to have a meeting with us saying he was overcome with anxiety and loss of sleep. When Jesus comes to town, all of hell shutters and knows of its impending doom! Things simply cannot remain as they were!

Ancient dungeon set upon the waters. Though dark and hopelessly drowning on the inside, surrounded by barriers to freedom, the pathway to life lies just outside the prison walls.

We began to learn in taking him through a process of his connection with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, that a great many deep wounds and hurts burdened this man as well as a horrific history of abuse from the most trusted members of his family; and he bore the scars to prove it. It was evident that sitting before us was a broken man with a broken past; in deep need of a Savior to completely heal him, deliver him, set him free, and restore him. In the process, I believe that shock of all this man endured as a young child left us reeling and praying for a blanket of peace to continue in ministering to him and drawing him into the heart of the Father, the arms of Jesus, and the comfort of Holy Spirit.

As my tear-filled eyes met Israel’s astonished, tear-stained gaze as he translated, I found myself overcome and overwhelmed with the compassion of Jesus. This man struggled to see the face of the Father, as he drowned in darkness. Filled with hatred and anger at all he had endured, he was unable to allow Holy Spirit into the room. Eventually as we guided him through a series of confessions and forgiveness, he began to feel Holy Spirit with us. He began to hear truth from Heaven about who God made him to be and a breaking off of lies occurred.

We then came to Jesus. He could not see Jesus and felt abandoned by Him in his times of greatest need through years of horror. It was then that Jesus gave me a vision of a specific time when he had endured deep abuse as a very young child and He revealed every detail of the scene before my eyes. It was in that very moment that I saw Jesus come in the room, sit down beside him, and take hold of him, enveloping him in His arms, comforting him. As I shared this through tears, the man broke down weeping and spoke of this very moment in time, of what he had endured and what he was thinking. His eyes were opened to the reality that Jesus had in fact been there the whole time and had never abandoned him or forsaken him, even in his darkest of days. Jesus used this to break off deception and to usher in His truth and reality as our Faithful Friend to the very end. Such is true for each one of us.

He shared how this history paved the way to a life of crime and how he had taken dozens of lives as a hitman for a gang he was a part of. Then Jesus entered the scene in his adult years and he had his first encounter with the power of God at a church gathering. The pastor called him forward out of the crowd and as he reluctantly came up on stage, the pastor prophesied his salvation that would come forth. He drew his gun on the pastor intending to kill him; and the pastor’s response should be that of every Follower of The Way, a martyr’s cry: With hands raised, “Go ahead and kill me! If I die, I am going to die worshipping my Savior!”

With that, he shot the pastor…but no bullet came forth from his gun, the pastor was unharmed! He fired multiple rounds in the air, all successful. Then he fired at the pastor again, with the same failed response! He hit his knees, and surrendered his life to Christ! It took some years and Jesus helped set him free from the gang bent on taking his life and that of his family.

There was always this reality to go back to, a memorial erected in his memory. He lost his way along the path, but sitting with us during this time Jesus confronted the demons of his past, cast them out, broke off the chains, and unlocked the prison doors. In the end, he could see Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit, and found a place in Heaven with all three that he never wanted to depart from. We then led him in a prayer of salvation and rededication to the Lord!

Sitting before us was a completely different man than we had met a few hours prior. So much so, that we believe a restorative power was released that night that will ultimately lead to the restoration of his marriage! He also became our driver for Sunday ministry travels!

Who would’ve thought that this man we ministered to would have such an encounter that he, an ex-assassin, would usher us around in ministry?! Now, THAT is what I call adventuring with Jesus!!!

I have a purpose in sharing this testimony. The main point being, it does not matter what our past looks like…Jesus was in it, is all over it, and working through it all to create in us an eternal weight of glory. Everyone has a Saul to Paul conversion in store where no matter how dark and ugly our past is, He will always bring us into a beautiful bliss of abundant life that compels us to go and do the unthinkable to make the name of Jesus famous in the earth and to do as He did.

We are never alone in this journey; never once before we knew Him, nor for a single moment after. It is time to step into His timeline, not the timeline of the past, and to advance; to storm the gates of hell and set free all who are bound as captives in darkness! No matter what appearances say, do it anyway!!! You have the dunamis (dynamite) power of Heaven backing you and going before you…you cannot lose unless you quit!

DO NOT QUIT! DO NOT RELENT IN THE ASCENT!

2 Corinthians 4:7-18 (TPT)
“We are like common clay jars that carry this glorious treasure within, so that the extraordinary overflow of power will be seen as God’s, not ours. Though we experience every kind of pressure, we’re not crushed. At times we don’t know what to do, but quitting is not an option. We are persecuted by others, but God has not forsaken us. We may be knocked down, but not out. We continually share in the death of Jesus in our own bodies so that the resurrection life of Jesus will be revealed through our humanity. We consider living to mean that we are constantly being handed over to death for Jesus’ sake so that the life of Jesus will be revealed through our humanity. So, then, death is at work in us but it releases life in you. We have the same Spirit of faith that is described in the Scriptures when it says,
‘First I believed, then I spoke in faith.’ So we also first believe then speak in faith. We do this because we are convinced that He who raised Jesus will raise us up with Him, and together we will all be brought into His Presence. Yes, all things work for your enrichment so that more of God’s marvelous grace will spread to more and more people, resulting in an even greater increase of praise to God, bringing Him even more glory!
So no wonder we don’t give up. For even though our outer person gradually wears out, our inner being is renewed every single day. We view our slight, short-lived troubles in the light of eternity. We see our difficulties as the substance that produces for us an eternal, weighty glory far beyond all comparison, because we don’t focus our attention on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but the unseen realm is eternal.”

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!”

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!”

IMG_1195

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 SEND: EKBALLO

I have been left reeling in a Holy Spirit daze after all that took place at The Send in Florida this past Saturday. I have tried to reflect upon all that transpired and yet, I still find myself without words. I have attempted to formulate into words what my eyes have seen and my ears have heard, and I find no words to truly describe the impact that has shaken The Church and the nations awake. I have simply found myself in a perpetual state of weeping before the Lord and the burning desire of the nations being continually kindled in my heart.

I have shared over the past few years of the coming wave that the Lord has been revealing to me and I truly believe The Send was enacted and that the war on inaction was declared that day. The Presence of God so heavily saturated the stadium that the moment I set foot on the field, my heart burst at the sight I beheld. Within moments of finding our place, the weightiness of His nearness to us was more than I could bear and I found myself crumpled on the turf with my face between my knees weeping and crying out, “HOLY!” I could not help but weep all throughout the day.

As the day progressed, I witnesses the marking point in the history of man as around 80,000 laid-down lovers of Jesus said ‘YES!’ to The One whom their heart beheld. The tearing down of every stronghold, care, and weight that so easily entangles was stripped bare of this arising army. A great committal before the Lord took place with the commissioning of Burning Ones into the universities, schools, neighborhoods, families and orphans, and the nations; with prayer and intentional fasting. A supernatural strengthening and refreshing came upon us as the Floodgates of Heaven were opened and rain began to fall upon a fiery, sun-parched and worn army pressing on towards the prize of Jesus Christ being made famous to the ends of the earth. Miraculous healings were released in the thousands as signs and wonders broke out. A fresh gust of Holy Spirit and Fire was released unto commissioning, empowering, and mantling.

Truly, the words, visions, and dreams He has given me were made evident that day and have met their releasing. The thankfulness and honor I feel that God would allow me a glimpse of what He has been preparing to shake the earth and set it on fire AND to participate in it in person has left me overwhelmed and in awe of Him.

This morning in prayer as I thought on these things, I heard Him say:

“A great and mighty war has been waged and My Mighty Army has come forth to carry out My battle plans in the earth. The great dismantling has begun! You will see that as My Army charges forth, they will cast down every idol, and detestable act, and shrine to self; exposing bare the deep and hidden things.

Soon, all the world will see the destruction that trails behind them as they plunder and ransack every enemy stronghold!

FOR EVERYWHERE THEY GO, EVERY IDOL WILL FALL AS THEY CARRY RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE IN THEIR WINGS.

Their eyes glisten with the view of Eden ahead.

THEY WILL NOT STOP! THEY WILL BACK DOWN! THEY WILL NOT RELENT!

My Fire is their portion and their power! A great transformation will come forth in a moment when it would seem that all is lost. When it would seem that great darkness remains, a bright light will shine forth and extinguish all darkness.

Light and Life will burst forth in a  great and mighty procession.”

Watching the replay of The Send as I write this, I am overcome with a song of Holy Spirit burning in my heart,

There’s a ‘YES!’ burning in our hearts and it propels us to GO! It propels us to GO!
There’s a Love burning in our hearts, and it compels us to GO! It compels us to GO!

Kentucky: Your Dawn is Awakening!

This past week news broke that Senate Bill 9, the “heartbeat bill” passed through the Senate. The following day, the Kentucky House Committee met to deliberate House Bill 148, the post-Roe v. Wade Abortion Ban (“trigger bill”). Within a few hours, the bill passed overwhelmingly. This means that if Roe v. Wade is overturned or the decision is remanded back to the states, abortion will be illegal in Kentucky except for the life or physical health of the mother.

On September 7, I released a post called, Into the Wilderness We Go!, over the state of Kentucky and inevitably the whole of America, and regarding Father’s heart on abortion. I shared of a vision I received from the Lord while in prayer that the doors of the E.M.W. Women’s Clinic, the sole abortion mill in the state, had an eviction notice on their doors. I then saw the hands of Jesus slap a huge yellow sticker across the doors that said, “CLOSED PERMANENTLY.” He then began to speak to me:

Prophetic Word for Kentucky- SEPTEMBER 5, 2018

“Getting back to the start, to the beginning, to the roots. From this place where I birthed the wave of outpouring into the nation, will I birth a new thing. Out of this place will come a dual wave of Righteousness and Justice embodied. Out of this place will I release a third wave new to the eyes and heart of man. Because of the exchange of selfishness for Righteousness, I will pour out a new vision.
No longer will the spilled blood of My Little Ones stain this soil! No longer will the shedding of innocent blood brood over you, Kentucky! For through you, I will set the standard for the whole of the nation to follow. Just as with the second great move of My Spirit that originated in the wilderness, purifying the disgusting debauchery from your soul, so will I do it again!
Your soil is Ripe for Harvest! I will make you a signpost along the Highway of Holiness, pointing out the way for those who come after you. Out of your heart will I birth a strategic blueprint for a restoration of the soul of Revival. Out of this place will a fire ignite in your church to arise and carry the weight of the influx that is coming.
Get ready Kentucky, for a baby boom is coming! Yes, the twins are being established in your womb! Not only will you see a baby boom in the natural- for all of the babies that would have been aborted are being given over to Salvation; Life will rage within your borders! Awakening and an enabling in the Body will arise to the spirit of Adoption. Babies will be saved and receive My family as their own. You will also experience a baby boom in the spiritual, for the wave of Righteousness will bring them in by the droves to your light!
I decree and declare that your buildings will not be large enough! Yes, back to the wilderness will you find yourself! Prepare your tents! Establish your tent pegs in the soil and let My Spirit breathe upon your laid down tents! Indeed, your Harvest is Ripe and Ready!

After spending the day praying for the House Bill to pass and seeing the news of it’s approval, an overwhelming feeling of victory arose within my spirit. I felt Holy Spirit come upon me and begin to prophesy. This is what He said:

Prophetic Word for Kentucky- FEBRUARY 13, 2019

“Your days of drought are coming to an end! Where you have come to know yourself as ‘Abandoned Kentucky’ will no longer be your identity; for it was never your original design. You will be known as ‘The City of Life’; for Life will rage within your borders and the Light of Life will emanate from you unto the nation around you. Yes, states will be drawn to your Light! Nations will be drawn to your Life!
Truly, I say to you, you will lead the charge of restoration unto family reformation! Broken nations and hearts will see the restoration within your walls and come to you for counsel on what has caused you to come into your place.
You will testify that I DID THIS! Yes, there is no one else who could take what was once broken and establish a City of Refuge for My Little Ones! All the world will see and follow your tracks. Your unbending submission to My Unbridled Spirit rolling across your land has ushered in the greatest Revival you have ever seen!
You thought you had seen it all when I created the Second Great Awakening within your borders; but you haven’t seen anything yet! The Promise of the Warhorse, yes, My promise to you has come to bring to completion all that I sent it forth to do! Your best days are ahead of you, Kentucky! You will KNOW Light and Life like never before! His name is Jesus!”

Sunrise in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, the conception place of The Second Great Awakening.

Over Thanksgiving break a few months ago, God led Jeremiah and I to Kentucky on a faith journey with Him. Through a massive series of events, visions, dreams, and signs spaced over a year and a half time period, we went to Harrodsburg, Kentucky, the conception place of The Second Great Awakening. We sought the will of the Lord for the state and to pray over the land. We claimed Kentucky as our inheritance and proclaiming awakening, life, and the words that God has spoken about the state. I held onto the very first vision that He gave me on August 16, 2017 that lit my heart on fire for the state of Kentucky. I believe that now is the time to release it.

In this vision, I saw a bright light begins to line the border of the state and an explosion happened centrally after a line of fire, like a dynamite fuse came from the east to that spot. The explosion led to small vein-like fuses that spread out and hit another major spot in the west side; leading to another explosion and vein-like fuses expanding out into surrounding regions and states.

“My Spirit is brooding over the land awaiting My chosen ones to rise up in true unity across the board. There has been a divisive spirit at work for far too long; and a house divided cannot stand…it will crumble. A remnant has remained and upheld ground as I draw those that will come and strengthen them to press in in the heat of the battle. Soon you will see a whole region rise up in praise and adoration and fall in repentance and reverence, in intercession.
“You want fire?…come and get it!!! It’s free for those of true hunger, for those who long for what is so far beyond them and their own plans and capabilities. That’s how I long to move.
“The dynamite of My Spirit has been lit and its fuse extends to the heart. Just as the heart pumps life to the whole body, so My Spirit is moving to set ablaze the whole body.”


I truly believe that what we are seeing now has sparked a move of Life that no power in hell can stop! Now many states across the United States are adopting similar bills and methods in which Kentucky has bore in guarding the lives of His Little Ones, our babies. We must continue to step up and contend for the entirety of Father’s plans to be made manifest!

We must REALLY PULL HEAVEN DOWN THROUGH OUR PRAYERS AND OUR YES!

For I decree to you, where Kentucky goes, America will follow!

This peaceful horse was on the property we stayed at. Separated from the others due to a leg injury, he often came while I prayed over the valley in early morning. Father had me perform a prophetic act of feeding him an apple and declaring that on the day he would run again, would be the day He would unleash His unbridled Spirit in KY. Feeding him an apple represented the harvest He would bring with Him.

Driving into Kentucky, the state sign says, “Kentucky: Unbridled Spirit”. Kentucky IS the Land of the Unbridled Spirit!!! Unbridled means “unrestrained”. I see Holy Spirit riding across the state with a fresh wave of His Spirit and churches are coming together as a result of a Revival that broke out in central Kentucky on Pentecost this past year. The groundwork is being laid and the land is being primed and made ready. Kentucky’s state motto is, “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.”
Psalm 133 (TPT) states, How truly wonderful and delightful to see brothers and sisters living together in sweet unity! It’s as precious as the sacred scented oil flowing from the head of the high priest Aaron, dripping down upon his beard and running all the way down to the hem of his priestly robes. This heavenly harmony can be compared to the dew dripping down from the skies upon Mount Hermon, refreshing the mountain slopes of Israel. For from this realm of sweet harmony God will release his eternal blessing, the promise of life forever!

Whether you live in Kentucky or not, do not withhold your prayers and claiming Kentucky for Light and Life! Kentucky bore and cultivated the seed of The Second Great Awakening in the very place that God led us to, to strike the ground and decree that Kentucky shall be saved and accomplish her purpose!

Hosea 10:12 (NKJV)
“Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”
(AMP) — “Sow with a view to righteousness [that righteousness, like seed, may germinate]; reap in accordance with mercy and lovingkindness. Break up your uncultivated ground, for it is time to seek and search diligently for the Lord [and to long for His blessing] until He comes to rain righteousness and His gift of salvation on you.”
