5780 -Arise Mouthpieces of Righteousness!

Yesterday began Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year 5780. While in my time with the Lord early yesterday morning, He spoke a truly exciting word that I realized afterwards was a word for this new year. I began to see what He was speaking taking form as I was caught up into a vision of its manifestation in the earth. Great fire filled my spirit as well as determination to see it come to pass.

I heard the Lord saying:

This New Year brings with it a light and the glory that will shine bright. For from the darkness a great light will shine and those who have been like the blind up on the walls feeling their way around will find their way home again.

As I bellow My name out across the expanse of the heavens in this time, My name will wash a multitude of sins as My blood cleanses and renews.

Truly, I am releasing a wave of divine recompense and it will command and demand a swift change that will turn things around. As you come to and near the light, you will find yourself arising higher upon My Holy Hill and as I roar forth My decree, you will see a swift change and turn.

I will place My decree upon your lips and My roar in your lungs to be My Mouthpieces of Righteousness in the land. You will march forth from My Holy Hill and with lips emblazoned, well roar forth My righteousness in the earth.

A mighty army is arising to take nations and generations into My glory for My glory!

I say, “Where are they who would run with torch in hand and run into the darkness, becoming the embodiment of My Light of Life? Where are the ones who would give up their very lives for this great cause? Where are they who have seen My gaze and whose eyes have become seared with My fire?! Where are they, who all they would see would be marked with My fire?! It is these ones who will not see things as they are, but as they will be and will decree and declare them into existence. Great glory marks the path of these ones who will stop at nothing to bring nations with them to My Holy Mountain.”

As He spoke this word, I felt such a strong pull in the spirit that we would see unprecedented waves of souls in this coming year. That the sound of His roar would suddenly shake the scales off the eyelids of the prodigals and they would come running towards the light He has placed in the hands of His Burning Ones. Like a lighthouse set upon a high place in the deep darkness of the night, the Light of Life would pierce through the darkness and beckon Salvation Come!

He has cultivated a generation of shofars in the wilderness in the past season, who will now emerge to bellow forth the roaring blast of His coming and all will see, hear, and know that the time for returning is now!

Isaiah 42:5-9 (TPT)
Here are the words of the true God, Yahweh, the One Who created the starry heavens and stretched them out. He is the One Who formed the earth and filled it with life. He gives breath to every person and spirit to everyone everywhere.
“I, Yahweh, have commissioned you in righteousness to succeed. I will take your hand in love watch over you. I will give you as a covenant for the people, a walking-light to the nations. Your mission is to open blind eyes, to set prisoners free from dark dwellings, and to open prison doors to those who are held by darkness. I am Yahweh; that is My name. I will not give My glory to another god nor my renown to idols. Don’t you see that what I have prophesied has come to pass? And now I am foretelling the future. I declare it to you before it sprouts up.”

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!

For too long many have been delayed and disarrayed in the previous season and the Lord is saying in this New Year, “NO MORE!!!” He is thrusting forth the doors of delay and loosing destiny upon His Bride; everything stolen will be returned with interest. You thought you were in the breaking in the last season; but I say to you, it was only the making!

Isaiah 42:13
Yahweh goes out to battle like a hero and stirs up His passion and zeal like a mighty warrior. Yes, His God-shout is a mighty battle cry; He will triumph heroically over all His foes.

Isaiah 42:16
“I will walk the blind by an unknown way and guide them on paths they’ve never traveled. I will smooth their difficult road and make their dark mysteries bright with light. These are things I will do for them, for I will never abandon My beloved ones. “

Isaiah 60:17b-18 (TPT)
I will install peace and prosperity as your government and righteousness as your overseer. Threats of violence will no longer be heard in your land, nor will destruction and ruin be found within your borders. You will name your walls Salvation and your gates Praise.

As He called forth those whose eyes would be seared with His fire, I was reminded of the total solar eclipse that took place two years ago and the dangers of gazing upon the sun as the moon shifted away from it. Many were left with permanent solar burns on their retinas. Wherever they looked, they would see the shape of the sun when its image was seared into their vision. As we gaze upon The Son, our vision will be seared with His  fire and we will see everything through the lense of His holiness where we will then prophesy it into existence. In this time, there is a special authority being released into the earth to decree and declare and see a swift manifestation unto fruition!

Isaiah 60:19-22
“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 lease 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!”

God’s Witness (Know) 31/40

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 move into the last 10 days of The 40, do not forget to focus your eyes on The King of The Kingdom. He rewards us as we diligently seek Him.  If you are able to give more to The Lord, let’s do it together. He is worth so much more than we could ever give. Let us worship Him in a special way the last 10 days of this fast. 

Yesterday’s encouragement was a shift in what God has been speaking and revealing.  God is speaking about seeking Him and growing into the powerful witness, He has created us to be. Over the next several days, we will see how we can become Holy Spirit filled witnesses of the good news!!!

Today, we will start at a place that we are familiar with, but it can never be neglected, forgotten or emphasized enough.  We must come to know God more and more and grow in our relationship with Him. When I speak of knowing God, I am not just talking about a head knowledge that we are accustomed with.  I am speaking of the old Biblical sense of know.  “Adam knew his wife and conceived a son” (Genesis 4:1).  This kind of intimate relationship goes far beyond a mental aspect of knowing.  Jesus is the vine and we are the branches without Him we can do nothing (John 15:5). 

What is the key to bearing fruit? Abiding, remaining, knowing Him!

This is not a new concept that Jesus brings us during his time on earth. Let’s move back to the prophet Isaiah long before Jesus and see the constant, faithful, unchanging heart of God for us to know Him.

Isaiah 43:1-3 “But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior…

God is our creator and redeemer. He has a plan and purpose for designing us and creating us. He has called each one is us by name to come to Him.  We are His.  We may not live walk or act like it, but we have been called and chosen by the Creator of the universe.  He did not make us and leave us on our own as some believe, but He is always with us.  Even in the darkest, most difficult times in our lives He is with us!  The flames of the enemy will not destroy us when we are near to Him. When we are near to The Lord we will not be overcome. 

Why does He do all these things for us?

He is The Lord our God, our Savior!!! Before we move on, know this, you are never alone when you are seeking The Lord.  It may seem like your prayers are going unanswered.  Situations are difficult, the storms, floods, and fire may be coming against you, but you will stand firm as you stand with God in His strength for you are His!

As we walk through the fires, floods, and storms of this life, we have come to know God our Strength, our Sustainer, our Provider, our Savior.  From this place of real life revelation and testimony of what God has done for us, we are called to be His witnesses.

Vs 10-12 “You are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, Nor shall there be after Me. I, even I, am the Lord, And besides Me there is no savior. I have declared and saved, I have proclaimed, And there was no foreign god among you; Therefore you are My witnesses,” Says the Lord, “that I am God.

There is nothing wrong with Christian apologetics and logical historical evidence that gives witness to the reality of a historical Jesus, but your very life and the testimony of what He has brought you through is an undeniable witness on display that brings glory to God.   The more each of us come to know God, trust in Him, and are transformed into His image, the greater testimony we have. As we come to know Him and our testimony increases, we become a growing witness to God’s goodness, faithfulness, and are able to give Him greater glory from our lives.  Nothing and no one else can cause such a transformation as has taken place in the lives of those who are daily coming to know Jesus more.

This is the first step of being a Holy Spirit empowered martyr-level witness and my encouragement for you today.  Come to know The Savior, Redeemer, and Sustainer more than ever before.  Come to know Him, and recognize what He has taken you through and out of. This has caused your very life to be a witness of who God is.  You are God’s undeniable witness right where you are today. Never be afraid to share who He is that has done such a mighty work in your life!

Jesus, help me come to know You more than ever before! Than, you for touching, changing, and transforming me from a rebellious, selfish sinner into a faithful, righteous saint. Use my life as a witness and testimony of You for Your glory. Even in the middle of the storms of life, I want my life to radiate Your glory because You are with me keeping me from harm.  I want to be Your witness and testimony in every aspect of my life!

Practical –

  • Ask Holy Spirit to help you come to know Him in a greater way today
  • Remember where you have come from, and what He has brought you out of
  • Thank God for His mighty work in Your life
  • Ask to be used as a greater witness and testimony for His glory

Be blessed today with revelation of the life-changing power of knowing Jesus more. May you see clearly where you have come from and how He has been with you through the journey.  May you be a living testimony and witness that continually gives glory to God!

The Lost Relics of the Simple Gospel and Our Testimony

It has been almost a week in updating from my time in Spain, and schedules got so busy that I never really had time to sit down and share more about what had taken place since my last post. So much so, in fact, that I’m actually back in the states; having arrived a few nights ago.

Amada, our translator and worship leader for the meeting.

On Thursday, we were scheduled to go to a house church-like meeting. It was the first one of its kind in the area and was put on by a woman in the church that John and I partnered with in Torrevieja. We were unsure of what to expect in going, but it turned out to be wonderful! It was obvious this woman came with expectancy for God to move and had gone out and done her duty in bringing in the people! She was a person of peace and I bless her for her obedience! I was going to share the Gospel with the Evangecube and it was a nice surprise to have a new translator; a young woman named Amada. She had been through YWAM Madrid in recent years and led worship at our meeting as well. She and I connected really well and I had the joy prophesying over her and in getting to know her joy-filled spirit all the more afterwards as we went out to dinner.

After worshipping together, I shared the Gospel with everyone and when I came to the point where each person must make a choice of whether they want to ask Jesus into their heart and receive eternal life and salvation, no one really responded. Suddenly, our expectant host asked me to share my testimony of what Jesus did for me and why I chose Jesus. I chose a picture on the cube showing man surrounded in darkness, contrasted with God in the light. I shared how I spent my life afflicted with sickness and pain; and drowning in bitterness, anger, unforgiveness, fear, and unbelief in being abandoned by my birth father and step father. I explained how I reached the end of my rope and was desperate for hope and deliverance from the darkness I was dying in. I spoke of how God stepped in in my brokenness, surrounded me with the Love of the Father; and how Jesus came in and healed me of all of my ailments and restored my life through His sacrifice on the cross.

Our host then asked if John and my mother-in-love would share their testimonies. They shared about how God reconciled them to Himself in revealing their need for a Savior; and that simply being a good person or operating out of religion cannot save you. Suddenly, those who knew Jesus began passing around the Evangecube, picking a picture on it they most identified with, and shared their testimonies of Jesus’ work in their lives. It was beautiful! We then came back to where we began…we must all make a choice. Life or death. Light or darkness. The lost in the room had become so moved at the testimonies of Jesus that with tear-filled eyes, they responded with choosing Life! We led them in a prayer of salvation and Pastor Pablo asked if I would lay hands on and pray for them. God touched them mightily and their countenances were lighter and brighter.

Marissa (left), Pastor Elsa, Maria, Ana (our host), and Augustine. Marissa, Maria, and Augustine gave their lives to Jesus!

In this time, Holy Spirit reminded me of a message my Husband sent me the prior morning from our cousin. She had been praying for the team and Holy Spirit showed her a picture of me running with fire, coming up to an older bald man with glasses, embracing him, and transferring the fire to him. Suddenly I realized sitting before me was that very man He had shown her. Being filled with fire, my spirit began burning to share this word with Augustine, who had just given his life to the Lord. God knew his time had come and He had a special message and impartation of commission for this new son!
Expect the unexpected! 

As I shared the vision with Augustine, I began to see how he connected with much of what God had revealed to me in the past seven years of going to Spain. He became flabbergasted and Holy Spirit downloaded to me His prophetic decree to His son. I began to prophesy God’s design for Augustine, that he was to take hold of the torch and blaze a trail across all of Spain. I saw Jesus come behind him and pour out a bucket of liquid fire upon him and everywhere he ran, wildfires raged across the land. He had searched the land for a Spaniard who would say, “yes!” to the call, and had been declined many times. His hand was extended, in high hopes that this son would take hold of Him and answer the call. The look of shock grew on Augustine’s face as tears welled up in his eyes; and he responded with, “I don’t think I’m strong enough for that.” The beauty of it all is that we aren’t meant to be able to! It is not by might, nor by power, but by the Spirit of God dwelling within us, that we are empowered to fulfill our destiny and set the world ablaze for the Glory of God! He then responded with a joy-filled “yes!”, stood up and embraced me. We then laid hands him, prayed for him, imparted the fire of God, and commissioned him to set his nation on fire! He left a completely different person than when he had entered! Praise the Lord!!!

I would like to propose to you a simple principle, an often forgotten lost relic of the evangelical life…the marriage of the Simple Gospel and the Word of our Testimony.  It is by these two things that we overcome the kingdom of darkness and establish the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth. The utter power of the Simple Gospel to break the bonds of wickedness, loose the yoke of oppression, heal all afflictions and diseases, fling wide the prison doors, and set the captives free will never diminish or fade. It will never decrease in effectiveness or cease to produce Kingdom developing results. However, when partnered with the Word of our Testimony, all deception from the enemy is crushed and obliterated; for no one can deny your testimony!

We are called to be martyrs, faithful witnesses of what we have seen and known to be true!

THIS is what I have seen and know to be true: Jesus came, He died MY death upon the cross to purchase me and pay my eternal debt that could not be paid, His body was broken to purchase my healing and deliverance. He rose again victoriously conquering all the powers of hell and setting me free to be one with Him. He is seated at the right hand of the Father ever interceding for me; and He has given me all power and authority under Heaven to do as He did, and even more. He sent His Holy Spirit to abide within me to be my guide, comforter, healer, friend, breath, life, power, and freedom.

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

Because of all of these things, I am healed of four “life-long, incurable” afflictions, I hold in my arms two beautiful children because of that healing, I am married to a wonderful and fiery man who every day is becoming more and more a reflection of the One Who holds my heart. I am forgiven, free, bold, unashamed, undignified, a Burning One set on seeing the desire of Jesus’ heart made manifest among the nations…that they would be set ablaze for His coming!!! I get to partner with Jesus in fulfilling His mission through this Great CO-Mission! I get to go into all the world to see Him do for others what He has done for me!

When we testify of what Jesus has done, we create an atmosphere for Him to come do it again! It is simple. It is Holy. It is powerful. It is the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth. All of Heaven for all of eternity testifies of Jesus, the Worthy Lamb Who was slain before the foundations of the earth, of His holiness. So I say to you, let’s join with Heaven and do the same!

Revelation 12:11 (TPT)
“They conquered him completely 
through the blood of the Lamb and the powerful word of his testimony. They triumphed because they did not love and cling to their own lives, even when faced with death.”

I will be sharing in the next post or two, about the rest of my journey in Spain; but until then…

I am your Savior and only hope to get through the difficult problems and the mundane day to day routine. I am the only One who brings life and light in the midst of death and darkness! 

You must continually come to Me! You must continually walk with Me! Come let’s conquer the enemy together and build the fruitful Kingdom in your life!!! I love you My child!!!

28 Do not fear”, says the Lord, “For I am with you; For I will make a complete end of all the nations To which I have driven you, but I will not make a complete end of you. I will rightly correct you,For I will not leave you wholly unpunished.”
