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!”

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!

Harbingers of Hope are Coming!

Recently I was in prayer and intercession for The Send, a gathering of believers coming together in Orlando, Florida on February 23, 2019. The mission of the leaders of this gathering and those attending (myself included), is to do whatever it takes to see the re-evangelization of America and the finishing of the Great Commission. Here is a quick snippet of what this earth-shaking event is about. My prayer is that you will see this and experience the overwhelming heart of Jesus to see nations, people, and hearts set ablaze for the Glory of the Lord. That war on inaction would be your declaration; with fire shut up in your bones. That you would join the wave of Burning Ones to bring Jesus the Reward of His Suffering.

While praying I found myself prophesying through song of the coming wave of Burning Ones. I was then taken into a vision where I could see this wave, of which I have seen numerous times over the past few years. Each time that I saw this wave, I experienced different elements of it. I once saw Jesus riding upon the wave of souls coming forth in the Greatest Revival in history that is to come. Another time, He gave me ears to hear the sound of the wave and the groans of the earth at their releasing. A time after that, I saw these Burning Ones running upon the hills with Jesus riding upon them, leading the charge. He opened His mouth and bellowed out His roar, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah roared for the releasing as in Joel 2. This time was very similar to the other visions I have had, yet there was something very different.

As I stood there, I felt the soil beneath my feet begin to tremble and shake. I looked up and gazed upon the horizon and I saw a wave come over the mountain, vast in size extending beyond my eyes’ reach. In great formation this great army charged forth, rolling upon the hills. The thunder of their feet shook the nations awake like the charging forth of a mighty army of war horses. In their arms, they came carrying His Little Ones, marked by the spirit of adoption. They were clothed with Righteousness and the Fire of His Love emblazoned them and radiated from them.
As I watched, I saw Jesus riding upon this wave atop His unbridled Warhorse, Holy Spirit. In great synchronization, the army mimicked His strides. He was clothed in dazzling white, His eyes blazing with fire mingled with piercing sapphire. His eyes were on the nations and burned for them. He extended His arm and held in His hand a flaming sword. From this sword, representing His faithful promises, He wiped out every enemy set before the army, clearing the path. I heard Him say,

“I am Faithful and True to keep ALL of My promises. Has a single one fallen to the ground? Has a single one gone forth that it did not accomplish ALL that I dispatched it to?

I AM COMING! TELL THEM THAT I AM COMING!

In the blink of an eye, all the nations will see Me for Who I really am. In the blink of an eye, everything will change. Brilliant colors surround Me and I am clothed in My promises for all to see; and indeed, they will see.
For behold, I am coming riding upon the wave of Righteousness; My Burning Ones dwelling and stampeding within the wave. There is no escaping the wave; for the Fire consumes all things and purifies all things.
The fiery compassion of My Love will fuel these Blazing Ones and you will see them coming, carrying My Little Ones in their arms. These will be the Harbingers of Hope to the earth. These will be the ones who have taken up My Little Ones when their silent cries rung out across time and space.
My fiery compassion and Love did this. It beckoned a response from the earth and these are those who have answered the call. They have been cleansed and purified by My Fire and set ablaze with a Commission that is unquenchable and unshakeable. They carry the coming generation in their arms and they have not lost a single one!
Joy mingled with purpose will be their catalyzing force. They will trample upon foes before them because I am riding upon them; and they will do it carrying My Little Ones through. SEE IT NOW!”

I struggle in just sharing this encounter to find the words to formulate what He is doing in this hour; for I am deeply overwhelmed as I see it again so fresh and new in describing it to you. I have had a number of other encounters where He has revealed what is to come and I will share what I am released to share with you. I would like to go back to two posts that I wrote at the last half of this past year, Into the Wilderness We Go!  and 2019: It’s All About Righteousness. Please go and read them for they give a deep insight into this wave that He is releasing and how the earth will be shaken and transformed by the Glory of the Lord.

I believe that He is taking the atrocities that we are experiencing in our nation and in the nations across the earth and using them to further His Truth; for He is sovereign over everything and in charge. He makes beauty out of ashes.

I prophesy that the darkness of deception is being obliterated as the brilliant Light of Life shines forth upon the wings of the dawn. Out of this place will an awakening of His Bride come forth to the purpose for which she was created. She will rise up out of her slumber, take up her weapons and clothe herself in the robe of Righteousness bestowed upon her. She will run with a fire in her eyes, burning with the passionate zeal of the Lord to see the world burning for Him.

The current state of death and abortion in America will no longer be tolerated, for she holds the keys to shut the gates open to the enemy and to unlock and open the ageless doors of destiny; ushering in Heaven on earth. As she stampedes across the land, she will take up the mandate of Justice and burn with His Love for the fatherless and His Little Ones. A new wave of adoption will arise in the physical as well as the spiritual, twins; yes, a double baby boom! His Bride will arise with the compassionate Love of the Father and take up His Little Ones as their own.

The Lord says, “Who are these kings and queens who care for and love My Little Ones? Are they not the ones whom I have established and commissioned as Mothers and Fathers? Are they not the ones whom I have enabled to take up the masses into their arms and shepherd them into Burning Ones? Yes, all of the world will see what I have done! No longer will there be silent screams for help and justice echoing throughout the halls of eternity. Only will joy remain as sons and daughters find their homes in My Burning Ones and in Me! No more will I weep over the spilled blood of My precious Little Ones whom I intricately and perfectly knit together. A day is coming when blueprints are released to expand the spirit of adoption into all spheres of society and a fostering heart will be released upon many to Love families into My Kingdom; bringing the restoration of the hearts of the fathers to the children and the children to the fathers. Do you see it now? Watch as I take what was once a broken system full of the forgotten and I establish a foundation of family in the center of it all! A Center of Justice will arise! Await and see! Arise and see! It will change everything! It’s time to awaken the mothers and fathers and to take up My Little Ones in your arms and carry them as they go!”

Psalm 9:9-12 (TPT)
“All who are oppressed may come to You as a shelter in the time of trouble, a perfect hiding place. May everyone who knows Your mercy keep putting their trust in You, for they can count on You for help no matter what. O Lord, You will never, no never, neglect those who come to You. Listen, everyone! Sing out your praises to the God who lives and rules within Zion! Tell the world about all the miracles He has done! He tracks down killers and avenges bloodshed, but He will never forget the ones forgotten by others, hearing every one of their cries for justice.

Psalm 24:7-10 (TPT)
“So wake up, you living gateways! 
Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny!
Welcome the King of Glory, for He is about to come through you. You ask, ‘Who is this Glory-King?’ The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way! So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here He comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in. You ask, ‘Who is this King of Glory?’ He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Yes, He is the King of Glory!”

Luke 1:17 (AMP)
“It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous [which is to seek and submit to the will of God]—in order to make ready a people [perfectly] prepared [spiritually and morally] for the Lord.”

Isaiah 40:9-11 (TPT)
“Go up on a high mountain, you joyful messengers of Zion, and lift up your voices with power. You who proclaim joyous news to Jerusalem, shout it out and don’t be afraid. Say to the cities of Judah, ‘Here is your God!’ Look! Here comes the Lord Yahweh as a victorious warrior; He triumphs with His awesome power. Watch as He brings with Him His reward and the spoils of victory to give to His people. He will care for you as a shepherd tends his flock, gathering the weak lambs and taking them in his arms. He carries them close to his heart and gently leads those that have young.”

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
