From Smoke Screens to Birthing Things

While in an intense season of prayer and fasting in this last year, the Lord brought me into a time of great revelation-knowledge day in and day out. It was in that time that He spoke the following word to me and He has now released me to share it. This is what I heard Him say:

“The labor has been long and hard. The coming birth is long OVERDUE! The baby has grown so large that it will take one hard push to be cast forth. BEAR DOWN! The enemy has seen the size of the promise and has tried to snuff out its life every step of the way…Clouds of heaviness, complacency in spirit, fear rumbling as he speaks death.

My Holy Spirit will be your midwife to guide you through the final pushes. YOU ARE ON THE CUSP OF DELIVERY! The Ring of Fire has been all around you, the intense waves of burning and opposition coming against you. But I declare to you: TRANSITION IS HERE AND YOUR BULGING WATERS ARE BURSTING, THAT YOU MAY GIVE YOUR FINAL PUSHES.

As you enter into the final phase, DO NOT GIVE UP, DO NOT LOSE HEART OR YOUR FOCUS FOR THE OVERFLOW IS JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR EFFORTS FOR MY KINGDOM! 

Yes, give your final pushes and BE AMAZED at how I EKBALLO My Revival, My Outpouring, My Promise!

Do you hear it?! Do you hear the sound of My babe coming forth?! Do you hear the roar from the lungs of a nation receiving the Light of Life? Everything I do is great! EVERYTHING I FORM AND FASHION TOGETHER IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK!

BEHOLD! I have set up and established a treasure trove of fruit from the promises I implanted in your heart. Now they have taken root, grown, developed, and are manifested before your very eyes! Reach forth and take hold of your special treasure, My Beloved!”


As we begin our transition into the Hebraic New Year, 5780 at the end of September, I believe that we are entering into a season of birthing the promises of God that have long been cultivated and become deep-seeded in the hearts of His Bride. I believe the Lord is saying in this crucial transition hour:

“The past seasons and years even, for many it seemed as if the promise would never come to fruition. Some even began to doubt the word spoken to them and if they had heard correctly or if they had missed a step along the way. The witchcraft and bombardment of the enemy of your souls had caused all focus to be lost in the thick cloud of the fallout. The heavy warfare and opposition had left many feeling disoriented and caused the focus of many to become askew and out of focus, lacking clarity. This co-ordinated attack was intended to stall the delivery and to allow for time to suffocate the promise in the middle of the birthing.

I say to you…It is time to SHAKE OFF THE DUST of the past season and to rise up and discern the hour that quickly encroaches!

Do you not perceive it? Do you not feel it? The rumbling and groaning arising even now for the fulfillment of the seeds of promise?

DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BECOME LOST in the shroud of foreboding of the unknown that the enemy is attempting to use as a smoke screen to distract you from the seedbed of Revival sprouting up RIGHT NOW before you! 

DO NOT FORGET WHAT I PUT IN YOU AND SPOKE TO YOU! IT WILL NOT BE LONG NOW UNTIL YOU BIRTH THE VERY THING IN WHICH I IMPLANTED IN YOU!

You thought it was far off or that the promise had died in the darkness of the womb; but I have been weaving things together which you have not seen nor perceived! Where it seemed as if all was lost, I was there creating something beautiful and intricate from nothing. My hands were there fashioning a thing too beautiful for words and NOW My Spirit has come to breathe the Breath of Life into the masterpiece I have designed.

You didn’t even know you were still pregnant with a living thing, and SUDDENLY IT MAKES ITS APPEARANCE!

I say to you…FIX YOUR GAZE UPON MY FACE! FIX YOUR GAZE UPON MY EYES OF LOVE AND MIMIC MY BREATHS AS I GUIDE YOU AND LEAD YOU THROUGH THE BIRTHING. STAY FOCUSED ON ME AND LET ALL OTHER THINGS FADE AWAY…REST IN ME AND MY LOVE AND WITHOUT ANY EFFORT OF YOUR OWN, YOU WILL FIND THAT IT IS IN THE REST THAT THE BIRTHING COMES!”


Isaiah 55:10-11 (TPT)
“As the snow and rain that fall from Heaven do not return until they have accomplished their purpose, soaking the earth and causing it to sprout with new life, providing seed to sow and bread to eat. So also will be the word that I speak; it does not return to Me unfulfilled. My word performs My purpose and fulfills the mission I sent it out to accomplish.”

Habakkuk 2:1-3 (AMP)
“I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the tower; and I will keep watch to see what He will say to me, and what answer I will give [as His spokesman] when I am reproved. Then the Lord answered me and said, ‘Write the vision and engrave it plainly on [clay] tablets so that the one who reads it will run. For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time it hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, because it will certainly come; it will not delay.'”

Isaiah 54:1-3 (NLT)
“‘Sing, O childless woman, you who have never given birth! Break into loud and joyful song, O Jerusalem, you who have never been in labor. For the desolate woman now has more children than the woman who lives with her husband,’ says the Lord. ‘Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.'”

Redeemed to be One

Daily Encouragement –

I take the broken and the irreparable-the unredeemable-and turn it all around. For see the wind and the waves, how they move. Was it not I who spoke them into existence and commanded them to stretch out from one point but to go not further in the other direction? 

Yes, I spoke all of creation into existence and breathed life into the dead things. Am I not strong enough or true enough to My character to do it again today? Right here, right now? 

For look and see—it is for My glory that I respond to the cries of My faithful ones and act on their behalf. What the enemy intended for death and destruction, behold, I am turning it all around that all may see My heart and deep love for My creation. 

Oh, how I long for fellowship with My children! Unending and eternal oneness as My Son and I are O N E. 

Luke‬ ‭8:25‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Then He asked them, “Where is your faith?” The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When He gives a command, even the wind and waves obey Him!””

John‬ ‭17:22-24‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“I have given them the glory You gave Me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and You are in Me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that You sent Me and that You love them as much as You love Me. Father, I want these whom You have given Me to be with Me where I am. Then they can see all the glory You gave Me because You loved Me even before the world began!”

A Moment in Time…

It has been a very challenging season for us over the past few months.  First of all, we would like to apologize for not being more up to date on posting as well as sending out monthly newsletters since the one we sent out in September.  The day that Katie began to work on the newsletter for October, our computer that contains just about everything we do for ministry stopped working mysteriously.  We have had to wait too long for the means to get it fixed and returned to us in a usable form.  But praise the Lord, we are now up and running again!!! 🙂

Coming back to “normal” non-missionary life has been difficult in many ways.  As we were traveling, we were standing on the word of the Lord to go, and we obeyed that word to the best of our ability.  Now that we are back, it has been hard to understand what God has for us here and what He is saying next for work and ministry.

Although it has been a challenging time, we have been privileged to be able to carry on ministering in many different ways.  We are privileged to be a part of leadership in Encounter God’s Presence (EGP).  Formerly, this was an annual youth camp and leadership retreat, but now it has been developing into weekly meetings and numerous youth rallies across our network of churches.  Katie has been involved in the organization and administration of things as well as being able to use her prophetic gifting to give words at several events.  Recently, we traveled with an EGP team to Hobbs, New Mexico to put on a rally for the youth.  Over a hundred youth came together and worshiped, prayed, and sought the Lord together.  During this time, many were ministered to, and Katie even got to pray and watch as a young girl’s leg grew out.  This along with her prophetic words touched the lives of many youth there.

Hobbs Youth Rally

This church invited the team to lead worship the next morning so that the entire congregation could be a part of what God was doing.  We went early to pray and prepare our hearts to be filled with His presence and then give out what we had received.  God had been speaking to me during this weekend a word that I was able to share with the worship team before they were able to minister to the congregation.  During the service that followed, the power of God was displayed throughout the church and the pastor gave up his message to allow the Holy Spirit to minister as the worship continued to usher in the Kingdom of God!!!

Worship at Hobbs First Assembly

The word that God had been speaking to me was a simple phrase, “A Moment in Time Changes Everything!!!”  As I meditated on this word, God began to reveal more.  We live our lives from moment to moment never really knowing what will come next and not being able to change what has been done in the past.  Each moment, we are given the opportunity to be obedient to the Lord and the Truth that we know.  Each moment in time changes what will come next for better of for worse.  As we are faithful to the Lord and His word to us, our moment in time will come into contact with another person’s moment in time and they will be changed by the Presence of the Lord we carry with us.  These life changing moments may not seem different than any other moment, because it is not even us doing anything but being obedient to the Lord.  This obedience to Him allows Holy Spirit to flow supernaturally through us to whomever we come into contact with.

In Acts 9:10, we come upon “a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias”.  He appears to be no special person, not a pastor or leader in a church.  He was a certain disciple like you and I are supposed to be.  He was spending time listening to the Lord and allowing his spirit to be filled by the presence of God.  When he got a word to go and pray for a man named Saul, he did not even really want to.  He had heard of all the evil horrendous things that Saul had done in the name of God, and did not want him to be healed.  This would be a bit like God telling you to go and pray for a well known member of ISIS.  Nevertheless, because of his relationship with the Lord he was obedient.  Saul was miraculously healed and chose to follow the Lord.  Ananias, a relative nobody, had a moment in time that God’s power and presence was able to be infused into Saul’s life, and this changed everything!!!  Saul became Paul and later became a traveling missionary and church planter, was appointed as an apostle, brought the word of God to the Gentiles, and wrote most of the letters that still influence us to this day.  Ananias gained a mighty eternal inheritance of all of these things because of a simple act of obedience that he did not even really want to do.  His moment in time still influences us today and changed all of eternity!!!

We can see all kinds of these life-changing moments throughout the Bible and even to modern day history.  At the time, they do not even seem to be that important, but because God was able to infuse Himself into the obedience of His people, miraculous things took place and a supernatural legacy was brought about.  Think about Abraham who left everything behind to follow the Lord, and his willingness to give up his most precious son Isaac, we are his inheritance.  Moses gave up the pleasures of the palace and the solitude of the wilderness to speak the words of truth to Pharaoh, and he became the leader of God’s chosen people.  After much resistance, Jonah spoke a word of destruction to Nineveh that saved the entire city.  The Bible is made up of simple individuals like you and I (Elijah was a man with a nature like ours… James 5:17) who chose to follow and obey the Lord and this changed history!!!

This is who you are!!!  This is your inheritance!!!  This is your destiny!!!  God calls you as His own to walk in faithful obedience to Him.  As you walk out the simple mundane acts of obedience, it allows God to inject His Spirit into the situation so that the miraculous can occur. At the time, you may not see, realize, or feel anything special.

One “little” word or one “small” act of obedience will change the world when God is the one leading and directing!!!

A tiny word can change, save, or set a life free when spoken out of Obedience and Truth!!! 

A simple act can affect a person, a nation, or all of eternity if we are walking with the Spirit!!!

One moment in time changes everything!!!

Bold Abandonment: Newsletter #5

God is continuing to use us in different ways while here in Texas.  It may not be how we would have thought, but He is showing us even more how to praise Him in seasons of waiting.  As well as how to be faithful in not just doing the good works that benefit ourselves, but also stepping out into the Greater Works that Jesus talks about in John 14:12.  May you be blessed in reading about our faith journey with the Lord and encouraged to step into the Greater Works that marked Jesus and the Apostles!!! 🙂

In Christ,

Jeremiah and Katie
