Pentecost 2015

Prophetic release May 22, 2015

pentecost-fall-545-p

(From the Lord) This Pentecost will be like no other. Be Alert! Something remarkable is about to happen. In the past there have been cities or churches where I demonstrated My Love and Power. In this season, it will not be the same. It will not be one or two places that I visit with demonstration, it will be all over the world at the same time. My Spirit, My very person, will touch My churches and they will KNOW Me and they will be made new. I will press into them all over, in every nation, in every city and I will do it all at once and it will change the face of My church. Worldwide I will do this.

Release My Angels with your prayers. Release them tonight to circle the globe. Circle the globe to the North, South, East and West and every point in-between. Angels of refreshing, renewal, reformation, revival. Angels bearing joy, peace, comfort, healing, revelation, wisdom, understanding. Release with your prayers My Angels carrying scrolls of Discipleship. Angels taking scrolls of Discipleship, My Words, to converts worldwide. They shall be converts no more! They shall receive the Words they need. They shall not be stunted and hindered any longer by religious walls and lack of commissioning. They shall grow and be My Sons and My Daughters.

An explosion of My love will hit My church. This Pentecost, this Shavuot, is not like others. Ready yourselves for I will begin this Pentecost.

Dead dry churches. I (Cheryl) see a dead dry church. Everyone in their Sunday best. Sitting on the pews with blank faces. Suddenly a wind. A mighty wind. Rushing sound of a wind hits that place. They cannot help but praise HIM, they explode with PRAISES for their King Jesus! They are refreshed, they are freed. The prison doors are opened. The Holy Spirit will set prisoners FREE to worship the King of Kings, King Jesus! It begins this Pentecost!

Angels are here. I (Cheryl) see what looks like aprons. They are shimmering with glory. They are not aprons they are being tied around the shoulders of God’s people.Release with your prayers Angels carrying mantels. They are new mantels. The old is being removed and a new mantel is being given for this season. The mantels will strengthen, refresh, increase and make new! Mantels of confidence, mantels of new energy, zeal and passion, mantels of joy, peace, hope.

When the people step into these new mantels they will release joy wherever they go, peace wherever they go, hope wherever they go, passion, zeal, renewed strength and energy wherever they go… in great confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ! This is new all new!!!

(back to the Lord) My Sons, My Daughters walking in new mantels, throughout the whole earth, the old removed, the new has come. You are receiving new mantels tonight. My Church shall receive new mantels this Pentecost, this Shavuot is not like others. I am gifting Myself to you in a new way.

My Church is ARISING! She shall not be hindered any longer. Demonic forces shall not stop her. Religious dead rules shall not hinder her. She is rising up NOW! This Pentecost she shall walk in the fire of my love. She shall reflect ME. Suddenly, My church shall be seen for who she is in ME!

…..

This was received and released at our worship and bible study Friday May 22nd at about 8 PM. The Holy Spirit grabbed the meeting and we moved in intense intercession followed by these words and visions. I have endeavored to clarify what I heard the Lord speak to me and what I was seeing and interpreting. While we were praying and releasing angels Pam saw this: “I was seeing a man on a horse. He was a king with a crown and he had a scepter extended upward. He moved the scepter as if pointing it when you released and commissioned the angels to take the scrolls.”

May this prophetic release be an encouragement to you! Be expectant this Pentecost. Something wonderful is about to happen!

Prayer Alert

redalarm

For over a year I have been encouraging the intercessors and remnant leaders to pray for each other because the Lord showed me our prayer covering needed strengthening. The amount of prayer needed for the days we are in is insufficient as too many folks are not praying or they are wavering in unbelief as they pray. This has been a continuous “nudging” and reminder by the Holy Spirit.

On 4-13-15 I heard an alarm sounding. It is like an insistent alarm clock and it is LOUD. The Lord is telling me it is a Prayer Alarm. We need to pray for each other and families NOW, body of Christ! This message is time sensitive. Something is shaking and stirring and we need a release of angels to set up a perimeter and right now! I am calling out to the Father to set up shields over the intercessors, remnant leaders and those whom we love. To protect our cities, states and nation! There is no panic or fear in this. If we obey and pray all will be well! The Blood of Jesus has already made a way for us!

Some things have already occurred in the lives of many of you this past 2 weeks. If there has been illness, hardship, tragedy or accident… Pray, believe, BELIEVE BIG, do not waver and the Lord will quickly heal and restore. Waves of glory will pour out of heaven to wash away all pain, hurt, fear. What remains is love power and a sound mind! This skirmish will quickly end as we unite in prayer agreement.

This message is for the world wide church: The enemy cannot prevail!! The God of all the Universe is about to scatter him.

Reformation has begun… Restoration is assured! Revival is imminent! Restitution is on the way!

Pray Big! Believe Big!

Pioneer Road

SonoranDesertGreenValley

During prayer and soaking in the presence of God, I began to see an image of a desert wilderness that slowly gave way to greenery. Way up ahead were hills and beyond the hills was more green and a river. As I waited, the image unfolded and I saw what to me appeared to be Jesus dressed in blue robes walking side by side with a woman dressed in pure white. His arm was around the woman and her arm around Him. Her head rested on his shoulder. They were walking away from me so I only saw the back of them, not their faces. They glowed and emanated light. They walked upon a road in the middle of the desert wilderness. The road was fully formed behind them, but as I watched them walk, it was in the process of being created ahead of them. Jesus and the woman talked and laughed and kept walking stride for stride. At each step the woman took, more road was created in front of them. It wasn’t Jesus’ feet creating the road. He was creating it as the woman’s feet touched the sandy wilderness.

As they walked forward, tiny plants began to appear dotting the wilderness. They were very green. Out ahead of them it got greener and greener. They kept walking together into the lush green. At every step, more road continued to appear.

At first, I thought this scene was only for me. I have been walking step by step with the guidance of the Lord into new places and at times it seems like there is no way to move forward and other times it feels like I am going “where no one has gone before” just like Captain Kirk in the old Star Trek movies.

As I prayed about this, I realized that I was seeing myself yes, but there was another layer to the vision. It was the Bride of Christ walking arm in arm with Jesus. She was leaning on Him coming up out of the wilderness (Song of Songs 8:5), talking to Him, full of joy, and stepping out in faith where there is no road. (Hebrews 11:1) It is the footsteps of the Bride of Christ walking with her Savior that is building up the Holy Highway that leads into refreshing abundance and leads to the river of life. She is pioneering in realms where there is no one to go to for advice except God. As she listens to Him, the way is paved before her in the desert, the green places as well as the hills and the valleys. But, it is not there until she takes a step forward – a step of faith – that the road will be there.

We have choices to make walking with Jesus. We could look ahead and see there is no road and refuse to move forward. He doesn’t force us. He waits until we are ready to take the step. The woman in the vision was talking and enjoying her exchanges with Jesus. We can choose to have conversation with God, or close Him off and do it our way – the woman trusted Jesus and listened to what He had to say. It was the intimate conversation with her Lord that gave her the confidence to step out and go where no one has gone before. Everyone of us can walk in this Pioneer Spirit. The opportunity is available to all who are called …but, know this: few are chosen. (Matt 20:16) Walking the pioneer road is a walk of total trust and unwavering faith.

The word to me, to us all, today from this vision is simply this: to trust the Lord with all of our heart and lean not on our understandings, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct our path. (Proverbs 3:4-6)

I am excited to find out where the Pioneer Road is headed! How about you?

Unfurl your Sails!

SBEXRF-00011389-001

There’s a new wind blowing! Unfurl Your Sails!
The beginning of this year there was a refreshing joy that came upon the body of Christ to strengthen us. I heard everywhere I went that 2015 was going to be an amazing year! Prophetic expectation was that this year would be our greatest year ever. The Lord told me it was the year of answered prayer; that prayers we’d even given up on or thought would never happen in our lifetime would be answered starting this year. For some in the body this has been true. I am in awe as I see answers to prayers two decades old pour out of heaven. Yet, for many in the body of Christ, nothing has changed and for some life has gotten more difficult than ever. The zeal I saw in the saints in early January has rapidly faded as they see answers to prayer all around them, but not for them personally or for their family.

Every person I know that is seeing answers to long time prayer right now have something in common. They went through a very dark time – some lost everything – but, they didn’t quit. They never lost hope or stopped believing. They kept looking to Jesus Christ as their only answer. So, if you are weary to the bone and ready to quit, if you are frustrated and feeling hopeless, the word from the Lord to you is to never, never, never give up! Don’t quit believing!

Don’t turn inward and give in to the “give-ups.” There is a fresh wind blowing out of heaven. Unfurl those sails of faith! Purpose in your heart to believe again! Proclaim with your mouth that you are a victorious champion in Christ Jesus and all that He has promised is yours. Fix your mind on Him and choose to receive joy and peace. Instead of dwelling on what you don’t yet have, or fixating on the challenges of life, be thankful over all that you do have and that there is a way through every trouble that leads to victory! The outpouring from heaven that is about to occur in response to faith will wipe away all sense of doubt, all thoughts of failure and hopelessness will vanish.

Is it really possible to see change and answers that quickly? YES! In literally ONE day I saw what was impossible become possible. In a moment, what could never happen, happened. And the answers keep coming. Heaven is wide open! Like never before in history the body of Christ is about to see demonstrations of God’s love and greatness just like I did! He is no respecter of persons. What He has done for me, He will do for you and MORE!

Don’t sit and quit! The wind is blowing, let’s sail!
With great JOY,
Rev. Cheryl Birch

2015 – The Year of Answered Prayer

happy-new-year-2015-wood

As we enter 2015 the Lord is speaking to me how important it is that we keep our feet firmly planted in His word, a strong foundation, and our eyes fixed constantly upon Him with our spiritual ears open to hear His voice. The things He is about to do in the world will look mighty strange to us- What He is about to ask of us will feel mighty unusual to us – the reaction of our already defeated enemy will be frightening to us – IF we are not fixated on Christ Jesus. We must have compassion on the world’s difficulties, but see through His eyes and KNOW His love for us, KNOW His blood covers us and KNOW His peace that surpasses all understanding. Don’t get caught in sorrows. He is our JOY, our provider and our protector! This is a year for us to shine for Him like never has there been opportunity before! We are to be His translators and His Ambassadors in a powerful NEW, all NEW, way! We are about to see the answers to years and years of prayers! Not only our prayers, but those of the saints gone on before us! Be ready to translate what you see and hear in the Spirit to speak to the hurting and change hearts in the earth. Prepare now in His presence to be His Ambassador wherever you go, not just sometimes, but always, in every place. There is an intercessory flow pouring out of heaven. A new wind of refreshing for those of us in the trenches AND thousands of new recruits about to join us and lift the load!!!! We have held the line and never given up and the Lord is about to start an advance – we are about to climb to new places. Shake off all past disappointment, stop wondering if you are in the right place in God’s Kingdom, and step into trust, great faith and more understanding and wisdom. Pray, intercessors, Pray with confidence. This is the year of answered prayer!

Climb!

Praying-on-the-Mountain-cropped1-150x150

Today the Lord spoke to my heart regarding the New Year. He had share with me in October that it would be a pivotal year for the church – click here to listen to the prophetic word. I have been asking Him how the church will ever make the turn toward Him that is so vitally needed. In November He gave a prophetic teaching that equated His body of believers to Elisha following Elijah no matter the cost in order to receive his master’s mantel double-fold. That 2015 would begin a special journey to receive Jesus’ mantel as His sons and daughters. To listen to the message click here. During my time with Him this morning I received more information about the journey. This is what I wrote:

Matthew 17:1-8
Mark 9:2-7
Luke 9:28-34

Prepare to climb, My beloved. It is time to ascend to a high mountain with Me. Higher than you have climbed before. Come away with Me to this secluded place where you will awaken and see Me in NEW Light. A place where your image of Me is transfigured. A place where you can see into the supernatural realms; and see what I see. A place where you hear the voice of the Father and His loving instructions. Transformation of who I am to you is about to take place in your heart and mind. So, prepare to climb by bowing down in humility. The lower you are in relying on yourself, the higher you can climb with Me. know during this trek it is vital that your reliance is on Me and Me alone. Such glory you will see! Such wonders you will hear! All to take back to a lost and dying world full of violence, fear, hurt and pain. You are to be a translator of My hope, an imparter of My love, a giver of My healing, a preacher of My salvation.

How to climb? Pick up your cross and follow after Me. A world full of souls that need My love and salvation awaits your completion. How you see Me must be transformed. Great sacrifice of reliance on worldly things; great gain of My Kingdom and treasures that no earthly endeavor can reveal awaits.

When I call, CLIMB!

Concerned about your health and welfare? Pray for your city!

180 turn

The Lord really spoke to me today about the intense need for His people to make 180 degree turn in how they approach praying for our government and its leaders. This is what He gave me and I felt I was to share it:

First, we know by 1 Timothy 2:1-5, 2 Chronicles 7:14-15 and other scriptures that we are to pray over our leaders and the government structures society has instituted. This next scripture really hit my heart… The Lord said to Jeremiah in verse 29:7 But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. How vital it is we bless and not curse our city or any governmental structure! When we speak evil it affects everyone including us!

Then I read in Titus 3:1-2 Remind them (that refers to followers of Christ Jesus) to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. And, the Holy Spirit pointed out this scripture in 1 Peter 2:17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.

It is vital not only to bless, but to use our mouths and our actions to create an atmosphere of honor for all people, even if we don’t like them, their actions, or their political stand. Every man and woman is made in the very image of God and we must, if nothing else, honor His decision to create them and the fact they have been placed in leadership over us. No matter how evil or good each person is, we are to pray God’s word over them in our cities, states, and our nation.

Some of the Scriptures to bless and to pray for your city, state and nation that I found after listening and waiting on the Lord in prayer:

Psalm 144:12-15 May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace;13 may our granaries be full, providing all kinds of produce; may our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields; 14 may our cattle be heavy with young, suffering no mishap or failure in bearing; may there be no cry of distress in our streets! 15 Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall! Blessed are the people whose God is the LORD!

Psalm 22:28 For kingship belongs to the Lord, and He rules over the nations.

Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will.

Proverbs 11:14 Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.

Daniel 9:18-19 O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.”

Psalm 2:10-12 Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”

Micah 6:9 The voice of the Lord cries to the city— and it is sound wisdom to fear your name: “Hear of the rod and of Him who appointed it!

Micah 2:13 He who opens the breach goes up before them; they break through and pass the gate, going out by it. Their king passes on before them, the Lord at their head.

Proverbs 28:2 When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but with a man of understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.

2 Corinthians 4:4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

Matthew 12:25 Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.

Daniel 9:16-17 “O Lord, according to all your righteous acts, let your anger and your wrath turn away from your city Jerusalem, your holy hill, because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people have become a byword among all who are around us. Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord, make your face to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate.

Psalm 67:3-7 Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth. Selah Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! The earth has yielded its increase; God, our God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; let all the ends of the earth fear him!

Isaiah 62:11-12 Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to the daughter of Zion, “Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.” And they shall be called The Holy People, The Redeemed of the Lord; and you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.
