Word of the Lord for Turkey- October 21, 2017
As I was praying, the Lord gave me a vision of the nation of Turkey being outlined by a line of fire, which began to spread out to surrounding nations and burn up the land there. It was bringing destruction to what life existed there as with an uncontrolled wild fire. Jesus came in with a bellows and began to feverishly pump it upon the fire as if to extinguish it. When the blaze was not put out, He blew a strong breath and immediately the flame extinguished. Amidst the smoldering mess, He began surgery on the nation. He spoke to one of the angels surrounding Him asking for a scalpel. Then He cut into the heart of Turkey and began reaching in and pulling out cords and wires of this mechanical being and throwing them out until there was nothing left but a hollow void. He began suturing in veins and a heart and other vital parts, pumping blood into them. He continued this process until surgery was complete. After suturing up the gap, He got a defibrillator from an angel, charged it and shocked the nation to life. He blew a strong breath and Turkey began to be filled with life and lit with a warm glow that was unlike the former. Veins began growing and being lit up to expand beyond the heart into surrounding nations.
Upon dwelling on this vision, the Lord was saying that Turkey for far too long has been a place that has become almost lifeless and mechanical, burning the bridge of relations and influence with the nations. Corruption and deception run rampant among many and cut to the very deep. I Am the One who brings life and among the whole of the nation, I have been rejected for far too long.
But in the governing bodies, I am doing something new. I am removing corruption and placing relics of righteousness for the sake of My faithful ones who have been interceding day and night for the salvation of Turkey.
I am putting the nation into a deep slumber as a bellows administers anesthesia, so that I can perform life-saving surgery. I am ripping out the dead, fruitless pieces and throwing them out . Yes, I am beginning afresh for you cannot put new wine into old wine skins. I am fashioning each part to fit perfectly. Each person I elect will bring new legislation and a new atmosphere of change. There will be obvious signs that will bring a shock of life back into the nation. Yes, watch as I breathe life into this new nation. Relations will be restored, industries will be started up to bring provision for the nation. No longer will the enemy reign in deception but the revelation of the knowledge of Jesus will be made manifest and the Bride of Christ will see herself for who she truly is. This revelation will spark such life that it will expand and grow to reach the outer parts into surrounding nations.
Psalm 51:10-15 NLT
“Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Do not banish me from Your Presence, and don’t take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and make me willing to obey You. Then I will teach Your ways to rebels, and they will return to You. Forgive me for shedding blood, O God who saves; then I will joyfully sing of Your forgiveness. Unseal my lips, O Lord, that my mouth may praise You.”
Ezekiel 37:4-14 NLT
“Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again! I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” So I spoke this message, just as He told me. Suddenly as I spoke, there was a rattling noise all across the valley. The bones of each body came together and attached themselves as complete skeletons. Then as I watched, muscles and flesh formed over the bones. Then skin formed to cover their bodies, but they still had no breath in them. Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.’” So I spoke the message as He commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army. Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones represent the people of Israel. They are saying, ‘We have become old, dry bones—all hope is gone. Our nation is finished.’ Therefore, prophesy to them and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: O my people, I will open your graves of exile and cause you to rise again. Then I will bring you back to the land of Israel. When this happens, O my people, you will know that I am the Lord. I will put My Spirit in you, and you will live again and return home to your own land. Then you will know that I, the Lord, have spoken, and I have done what I said. Yes, the Lord has spoken!’””

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!”

I took the team to the first family, where we were greeted by the boy pictured above, and we were able to pray for them and bless them. It was good to be in this place of ministry once again, but I was sad that we did not get to do more personal ministry. Even as we finished up giving away the last bags, the rain began to come. From that point for the rest of the day it has rained with more or less intensity.
Before we left on our journey, my sister had a prophetic vision for us. This vision was rather long, but part of it included that God would give us unique words and prayers to pray into the problems in the countries that we would be ministering in. God has been faithful to reveal to my wife, myself, or both of us unique things to pray over each place.
Upon our arrival, we rode with Pastor JoseMaria and his wife from the airport to his house. He mentioned casually that the night before we had come, an unusually strong wind had woken him up twice during the night. We thought nothing of this until we were praying and seeking the Lord the next day. God began to speak to us both, separately, that this was the wind of the Holy Spirit. After this was revealed, I began to study the characteristics of Holy Spirit and how the wind is used to describe Him. As I did, The Lord led me to Ezekiel 37. Here, The Lord takes Ezekiel to a field of dry bones. He tells him to prophesy to the bones. All the bones come together and flesh and skin even comes to the bones, but these people are still dead. Then Ezekiel is commanded to prophesy to the “Ru’ah” (this is the Hebrew word for wind and it is used interchangeably for wind, breath, and Spirit) that the bones may come to life.
Here, in Spain, the spiritual climate could be described as a dry and dead one. The church is Catholic, but none of the young people go to church. Those that do, often go out of duty and obligation and never out of desire to know God. However, Spain has a rich history and is even said to be a place where Paul journeyed during his lifetime.
There may be bones here, but bones speak that there was once life!!! No matter how hopeless and dry these bones seem, the wind of Holy Spirit is coming to breathe new life into these bones. When the Spirit comes it brings change to the climate. Even as the wind of the Holy Spirit is bringing life to the bones, He is ushering in a change of climate that is bringing the rains of revival. My wife shares here Rains of Revival what God has spoken to her on this subject, and this is how we have been praying for Spain. I believe that the churches are coming together in unity and begin to be formed into the body that they are supposed to be. As we pray and cry out for Holy Spirit to pour himself out upon this land, He will usher in revival and all that comes with it!!!
I urge you to pray this out not only over Spain, but over your life as well!!! In all of our lives, we have places where life has gone and death has come. Where is the vision of our younger years? Where is the passion of the Gospel we once had? Where is the faith in The Lord we were so eager to live in obedience to? Where has the desire to give ourselves as living sacrifices to The Lord and spend our time coming to know Him more?
Without the life and freedom Holy Spirit brings, we are walking in that valley of dry bones!!! I say to you prophesy to Holy Spirit and cry out to Him that the spiritually dead things in you may come back to life!!! Cry out to The Good Father and know “…your Heavenly Father [shall] give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?” (Luke 11:13).
