India: Governments Overthrown to Make Him Known

Recently, I was in a deep moment of worship and intercession with the Lord and was listening to a prayer set from a prayer room in our region. They began to pray and intercede for the launching of a global missions movement and prayed specifically over the nation of India. While praying myself, a song came forth from a deep place in the Spirit:

On the breath of the four winds, here come the flames| flames of fire, Your servants
to bring You a song, bring You a song, bring You a song of praise
They’re singing: Come on in, come on in|it’s time to ascend
to the hill of the Lord|to seek His face like never before
Upon this rock, I’ll establish a house|a house of praise for all your days
Can you hear them singing?|Come on in, come on in, it’s time to ascend

In this place, I was caught up in a vision to a place that I have been once before five years ago. I was in a dark room that was as if it was a negative space, like it was fully dark. When I glanced to the left, I saw an architect desk lit with an overhead lamp and Jesus was sitting at it. I walked over to Him from behind and He glanced back, smiled at me, and motioned me over with a nod; inviting me into His work space and in on what He was working on. Looking at the desk, I saw a large blueprint sheet with an outline of the nation of India. He held a pen in His hand and He was drawing on the nation.

It was unclear to me at first what He was doing, so I asked Him what He was working on and He said,

“I am overthrowing governments and kingdoms. Many will come toppling down; and I will build My House upon their ground. Governments built upon unstable foundations will crumble down, every power and principality in opposition to Me will follow suit and bow down to Me. I am more powerful than every single entity and worthless idol residing over the nation. Soon, you will see them fall down and all will see Me as the One Who alone is God!” 

Jesus then began drawing some more and there were three locations that stuck out on the picture of the nation. When I looked, I saw that the three places were north-central, west-central, and south-centrally located. I asked Him what it meant and He replied,

“A cord of three strands is not easily broken; and a unified body yields great power. I am about to shake things right-side up and the masses will see My glory as I tear down every idol opposed to Me. Watch as I destroy that which glorifies another and see as I establish high places in which the lost may come into My family. Yes, the orphans will find a home. I am raising up those who will establish and implement My values and principles in a nation that was once far from Me, but has turned to Me. You will remember the time so long ago in which My Truth was first received by you and you will honor it as a memorial across your land.

“As I uproot evil within your government, I will remove from power those in which have exploited your poor for riches’ gain; for I hate exploitation of My children. Every offering made to idols will return void as your carved images topple to the ground in pieces! This will be the sign of a divine purge taking place across the whole of the land.

“You will see a rise in the value of your rupees as I bring into play a front-runner to govern your nation. He will be a man you have not known and many will find themselves saying, ‘Who is this man? Where has he come from? He has risen from the low places and yet he has prestige and speaks with great power and authority.’ I have been at work within his heart and I have been creating a hunger and desire for Me within him.

“A righteous indignation will arise within him towards glory given to idols and he will begin in partnership with Me, to eradicate your land of enemy strongholds. It will be so foreign to you, for you have not seen such pure and righteous actions in ages.

“Curiosity will begin to sweep across the land at the power behind it. The saying, ‘curiosity killed the cat’, will carry a dual meaning; it will be a paradox. To the curious, they will receive life where they were once headed straight for death’s doors. The only cat dying here will be satan as his grip on the souls of this land are ripped from his hands, and he is sent plummeting to the pit.

“You will see life begin to spring forth from the soil of your land like never before. Where there were once dry bones littering your land, you will see a mass burial of all that has displayed death. Watch as the unthinkable takes place, where your waters were once polluted with death, a supernatural cleansing will come forth, bringing new life and restoration. You will drink of the well of salvation and of the rivers of living water and you will never thirst again!”

Isaiah 56:7 (NLT)
I will bring them to My holy mountain of Jerusalem and will fill them with joy in My house of prayer. I will accept their burnt offerings and sacrifices, because My Temple will be called a house of prayer for all nations.

Haggai 2:21-23 (MSG)
God’s Message came a second time to Haggai on that most memorable day, the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month: “Speak to Zerubbabel, the governor of Judah: ‘
I am about to shake up everything, to turn everything upside down and start over from top to bottom—overthrow governments, destroy foreign powers, dismantle the world of weapons and armaments, throw armies into confusion, so that they end up killing one another. And on that day’—this is God’s Message—’I will take you, O Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, as My personal servant and I will set you as a signet ring, the sign of My sovereign presence and authority. I’ve looked over the field and chosen you for this work.’” The Message of God-of-the-Angel-Armies.

Call to Go (Southeast Asia)

IMG_3013

I remember now why I do not take showers in the morning in Asia. The bone-chilling cold water should be reserved for after sweating all day in the heat. However, I am truly awake now as I write this.  This is just one of the few things when God has called us to go, we must give up to say yes.

Your will, your way, your wants and desires are always difficult to give up. “I want it my way.” You may not ever say it out loud, but this is the way you are. I know this, because this is the way I am.  Graciously, the Lord granted me several confirmations that this was a trip I was supposed to be on. I do not often get such clear direction and continually receive confirmation I am supposed to go. I usually just give Him my Yes out of faith.

After the 30+ hours of travel, I can say thank the Lord for giving me the ability to say Yes. Sitting on a plane for any extended amount of time is physically uncomfortable, to put it mildly. However, for me, it has always been hard to sleep so it becomes that much more difficult. But none of this matters because I have said Yes to Jesus and His call for me to go. Unfamiliar places, faces, food, accommodations… None of this really matters for I have given my whole-hearted Yes to Jesus and His way.  

The people here are worth it because He loves them. Even more than that, He is worth it and I love Him!!! Right now, in your life, what is of the greatest value? What do you love the most? What would you hold on to if everything else was stripped away? What if God called you to give that up to Go for Him?  Could you do it? 

My prayer for you is that you hear the call of the Lord to Go and that you say as Isaiah did, “Here I am, send Me!!! No matter the cost, no matter the price I will follow You and say Yes!!!” Jesus is worth flying to the other side of the world and giving up so much! In the same way, He is worth it to lay down your fear, pride, selfishness, to walk next door, up the street, down the fruit aisle… Or wherever else He may have you. He is worth it to give all that You have to speak His good news!!! He gave first, and He gave His best for you.

What do you have to give the Creator of the Universe??? 

I give You my, Yes and my obedience!!! Here I am!!! Send Me!!!

Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Possess the Land

Encouragement for Today 

What are you working for? What do you have stored up for the future? What is of greatest value to you?

I am the Lord your God, Creator of Heaven and earth!!! What could be of greater worth than knowing Me? I have all the wisdom you could ever need. I have all the possessions and land you could ever want. All the blessings of The Spirit are mine to release. 

Do not worry or fear because of the troublings of this world. Come to Me!!! Trust in Me fully and completely!!! Put your trust in Me and the land shall be a possession for you. Your inheritance will be the Holy mountain of My presence. 

What could be of greater worth than direct access to Me and My Kingdom? Here it is, all for the taking as you come to Me!!! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 57:13 “But he who puts his trust in Me shall possess the land, And shall inherit My holy mountain.”

V. 15 “For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

Unbreakable!!!

Daily Encouragement –

How solid are you? Do you feel like you are being tossed back and forth in this crazy life? Do you waver to and fro because of the situations around you? 

I am the tried and true firm foundation!!! I am immovable! I am the cornerstone and anything of value must be built upon Me or it will fail and fall! 

There are so many things in the world that seem sure, but when they are the foundation, they will fail and fall. Love is not a good foundation for a marriage. Neither is profit the best starting place for a business. I must be the foundation and cornerstone for all you do. I desire for you to become immovable and unbreakable in Me!!!

Come to Me! Strengthen your ties to the firm foundation and see all the blessings and benefits that flow to you. I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 28:15-16 “… For we have made lies our refuge, And under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.” 16 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.”

Prideful Opinion or Humble Trust?

Daily Encouragement –

What’s your opinion? What do you think? How much do you value yourself over Me and My word? 

Everyone has a thought or opinion about serious ( and even non-serious) matters, and most of the time you never have to ask for them. Pride and selfishness will raise their ugly heads and let you know what they think about whatever it is rather quickly. The hard part is learning to listen and trust Me over these two demons! Pride makes you think your way is the best no matter what it may be. Selfishness causes you to desire whatever is best or looks best to you. 

Cut these off at the roots and come to Me with humility. My ways are higher than your ways! Come to Me with trust knowing that I have your eternally best interests concerning all things. 

Come to Me! Trust Me! Follow Me! Love Me in all you do! This journey is worth it, and it will take a lifetime to complete. I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 43:2-4 “…all the proud men spoke, saying to Jeremiah, “You speak falsely! The Lord our God has not sent you to say, ‘Do not go to Egypt to dwell there.’ 3 But Baruch the son of Neriah has set you against us, to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they may put us to death or carry us away captive to Babylon.” 4 So Johanan the son of Kareah, all the captains of the forces, and all the people would not obey the voice of the Lord…”

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Valued or Not?

Daily Encouragement –


Are you looking for something fresh and new? Do you want a word from Me? Have you completed what I have already given? Have you obeyed? What is the value you have placed on My words? 

I am continually speaking if you will have an open heart to receive and come to Me. What are you doing with what you have heard? The action you take after hearing shows what value you place on My word to you. 

Some are quick to obey while some immediately harden their hearts. Some will try to decide if it is what they want or think is the right thing to do. Often, if the word is distasteful or unpleasant, you go everywhere to figure out something different. Eventually, you will even return to Me to see if I have changed My mind. 

Come close to Me and allow Me to soften your heart to receive and obey all My words. They bring the life, hope, healing, peace, restoration, and love that you need if you will value them and come into line with My divine plan for you. I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 36:3 It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the adversities which I purpose to bring upon them, that everyone may turn from his evil way, that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.”

Jeremiah 37:2 But neither he nor his servants nor the people of the land gave heed to the words of the Lord which He spoke by the prophet Jeremiah.

V. 17 then Zedekiah the king sent and took him out. The king asked him secretly in his house, and said, “Is there any word from the Lord?”

O’ My Goodness

Daily Encouragement –

Do you have all you need? Are you satisfied? Will you be satisfied for the next 5, 10, or 50 years with what you have now? 

Too often the thing or things you take pleasure in now, for a time, will lose value and be useless to you in a year or less. After that, you will “need” and desire something else, something better.
I urge you to come to Me!!! I am all you need! I have an abundance of peace and truth waiting for you to come and receive it. I have an infinite amount of fresh and new that is waiting for you to come and search out. 
I have so much goodness and prosperity waiting to pour out over you that it will overwhelm those around you. My goodness will cause many to fear and tremble at the abundant outpouring that is released over you as you come and seek Me! 

Do you know that you need Me more than anything or anyone else? Not only do I have all you need, I have all you could desire or ever hope  to seek out for all eternity!!! Come and see!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”

Vs. 9 “Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it.”
