Hang On!

This is a dream and message of HOPE for the USA.
Yesterday (August 21) I was quite despondent all morning and very concerned in the spirit over our nation and our future. That is unusual for me as I have been inspired by Holy Spirit to stand in great hope for the USA even during the darkest of times. But, I had seen in a dream something disturbing. I saw a great house. It was Colonial, painted white with black trim. It was three stories with pillars out front, lovely green landscaping, on a hill overlooking water. There was bright sunshine on the house at all times. Then before my eyes the house was ripped apart. Holes in the roof and walls appeared. Windows broken and shutters askew. There was a man working desperately to save the house, but as fast as he repaired it new destruction occurred. He worked harder, sweating. He took off his shirt, tightened his belt, and worked on the house but, it kept falling apart and missiles blew holes in it. He finally fell on his face exhausted and lay on the ground. He got up after a bit and walked toward the water and stepped on to a wooden boat dock. He fell into the water face first, rolled over, face to the sun, and floated away out of my sight. Very oddly his chest shown brightly with radiant gold. I woke up horrified and saddened.

But, the dream was not what I thought it was. No, in seeking the Lord, it was not the depiction of destruction, loss and suicide that my soul perceived. It was a depiction of the church finally letting go of working hard to keep up a structure our loving Father is trying to tear down. Holy Spirit quickened to me that it was specifically a picture of the USA church. The Colonial house indicated the church in the USA stemming from her very beginnings.
~*~
The man in the dream represented all the ministers of the gospel trying to keep things the way they are – trying to hold back change and transformation of the USA church. But, we must be transformed. A reformation has begun. The old structure has to be removed and God’s structure built by His hands. When the man fell, it was on his face. Good position. He fell in humility. He walked away from the old and fell into the washing waters of the word of God, face first – in humility – and then turned around completely, facing the sun, and let the waters carry him withersoever God would have him go. It was a picture of submission, repentance, and turning to God’s ways. His heart glowed golden with God’s presence as he floated away.
~*~
After the dream, I received this message from the Lord:
Hang on! For the prayers of the righteous have come before Me this day on behalf of the United State of America. Bow low before My Presence and I will raise you up as beloved children. Hold tight to me and watch as I cleanse your nation of wicked schemes from within, of plots to destroy, of long-term iniquity that seems impossible to overcome. Of these impossibles I say: NO MORE! What humankind cannot do, I CAN do and WILL do before your eyes and in the hearing of your ears.
~*~
Let not sadness or grieving overtake you during this time. For on a grand scale, to the North, South, East and West, I will shake out and reveal the hidden things of men’s and women’s hearts. The sleepiness of your nation will change in a day. My Body is waking up and, as they come fully awake to the futility of their strivings and self-made kingdoms, they will see Me. They will see My Glory and the magnificence of who I AM will terrify them; but not to death. They will be startled and provoked to new life within their New Life. Such as I have done in their hearts will shine forth like the noonday sun. What they have treasured of their own doing will fall away as dust in the wind of My refreshing breath.
~*~
The dry bones shall live! You shall live and serve Me and My purposes. You shall not die USA church but, it will feel like it as I transform every aspect of you inside and out.
~*~
Evenings will be sweet in My Presence and mornings drenched with the dew of My love. Your days will be filled with joy in the harvest and in the night hours I will speak clearly and show you all that must take place. And, I will strengthen you for the season of trials to come.
~*~
Yes! Bow low before Me, my dear ones, and trust Me implicitly to bring you to the place of your greatest, your highest, call in Me. A place of supernatural servanthood.
Your nation is My nation and I will shut the mouths of those who curse her; the mouths of those within and those without.
~*~
Every nation is My nation and what belongs to Me, I am about to take out of the hands of those who hate Me. Salvation shall flood the earth. Though the battle be fierce, Rejoice! Look up! Watch! See what I will do in your midst and Rejoice!

Get Excited – Prepare Now!

change-is-good

Though many folks are longing for things to “go back to the way they were” here in the USA, that is not at all what I am hearing from the Lord. Instead, He is speaking to me that it is time to press into Him and learn from Him His plans for the USA. He has begun a great and mighty work of change that will, if we respond, cause the USA church and eventually our nation to shake off “the way we were” and step into our greatest hour ever in all of our remarkable history.

Yes, there were good times in the past, but that is the old wine skin of the old days and we must become new wine skins so that He can pour out a brand new wine… a new way of doing just about everything!

We are in preparation right now to be part of His grand plans. Keep saying to yourself that Change is Good. Yes, whatever the Lord is changing is very good! No matter how much He is stretching you and challenging you in this season, know that every bit of the discomfort is worth it for the glory that is set before us!

Get excited and let Him prepare you now to receive the “new wine” for our generation! (Luke 5:36-39)

Pathway to God’s Best

Sunpath

Prepare for all things to become new. You are on a pathway to My best.”

These are the words I keep hearing from the Lord despite all the negative news reports in our nation and the world.

Can we really comprehend everything changed, everything new?

That’s the question of my heart and His answer is remarkable. He has confidence in us and He will help us through each phase of His plan for our nation. Here is what the Lord spoke to me: I shall turn your hearts toward Me. There will be a crescendo of My Presence and there will be a sign and a wonder to prove to all that I have walked among you. From My touch will spring many new streams and you will be like a mighty river as you, as each stream, is bound together by My perfect love. The battle for the USA rages on, but know this, I Myself strengthen you. The victory is Mine. In your weakness I will be strong and your nation shall be won to My glory.

He gave Malachi 4:2-3 as further encouragement to share this day: “But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; And you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves.You shall trample the wicked (one),For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this,” Says the Lord of hosts.

I added “one” after wicked as under the new covenant God directs us that we battle not against flesh and blood but against demonic forces in the heavenlies. He will make all things new in our nation. His destiny for us all will come to pass as we allow Him to work through us to trample on the demonic forces that are trying to destroy us. We must think of ourselves as victors, not victims! Yes, we can walk through this time of change and see the glory of the Lord in the midst!

 

Stand as light in darkness

lighthouse

Yes! We are the light of the world as ambassadors of Christ Jesus!

As the earth spirals into spiritual darkness our job to be that light is more important than ever! All the more we need to gather together and pray. All the more we need to bless, bless, bless and bless some more and learn how to stand strong in the midst of adversity. Jesus described in Matthew and Luke what it would be like in the world at His return. He said it would be as the days of Noah. In Genesis 7:11 it says “Now God saw that the earth had become corrupt and was filled with violence” – that was the kind of culture Noah lived in. That is the kind of world culture we live in. Noah stood for righteousness and listened to God in his day and we must, and we can, do the same in our day. In fact, we have advantage! We have Jesus and we are filled with His Spirit. So, let’s not faint, give up or give in! Let’s learn how to stand as light in the darkness!

If you are in the Modesto area, join us for our new class “BE STRONG!” Friday night July 22nd – Days Inn Modesto at 7 PM.

Refreshing Wind

Refreshing

What I have observed is that weariness and a sense of oppression has been rampant among the remnant and intercessors. Truly it is vital that we continue to pray for each other as we go through increasingly difficult times of fear hitting our nation and more spiritual darkness comes upon the earth.

We have been in a season of steadily increasing challenges, a very unsettling time.  This message not to tell you that the world will be “normal” again, or that this season will go away and be all be over and done with soon. That is not the truth. The Lord has told me many times since the mid-1990s we are going to see very dark days and perplexing things in our nation and this world, BUT the church will glow brighter and brighter with His Love and Presence. We will be more and more His anointed representatives, Christ-like Ambassadors, and people will run to His Light.

Don’t give up and pull-back! We must continue to stand in faith, believe and pray,  for our prayers are benefiting our communities, state, and nation in magnificent ways we can’t yet see. Though He tells me many of you are tired to the bone, know that Jesus and Holy Spirit stand with you and all of heaven is responding to your prayers. All you may see, feel, hear and smell is war and resistance, but what you are doing is helping others receive from God what they could not receive or cannot receive without prayer intervention. Your sacrifice is worth it!

Hang on just a little longer is what I am hearing. There is a very specific and special refreshing wind for the intercessors and the remnant praying church that is about to be released by the Father. When it comes, be prepared for amazing change in YOU and around you. This wind is what many of you have been waiting for. He has told you about it and it is about to blow freely through the remnant church to give us strength and ability to stand for Him in these times.

Father God is very proud of you and pleased with you. Trust Him and keep seeking Him. The reward of His loving touch in your life and the resulting outpouring of salvation, blessing and favor around you is a treasure worth great sacrifice. He is worth walking through this trialing time.

Stand fast in Him and believe He loves you and has your best in mind.

With love and JOY,

Rev Cheryl

“And you shall swear, ‘The Lord lives,’ In truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; The nations shall bless themselves in Him, And in Him they shall glory.” Jeremiah 4:2

All I ever hear from the Lord is that
we are being prepared to enter into the USA’s Greatest Hour!

I don’t listen to or read all the junk being published about the downfall of the USA. Truly, there are far too many that love the Lord with their whole heart and whole mind salted throughout our nation for God to destroy us. No, we are not in a time of wrath and destruction. We are in a time of course correction, discipline and intense training so we are prepared to rise up in our greatest hour ever!

I know that I must shout from the rooftops to the body of Christ: Believe the truth of God’s word and begin to declare His truth and BLESS our nation!!!

Start today, during our national birthday month. Let’s stop speaking unbelief, fear and death over our land and start speaking LIFE ABUNDANT in Christ Jesus! As we rise up together and become a voice of blessing in every sphere, we will see righteousness return steadily to our land!

We have a job to do, a great work in the Lord, to win a nation back to Christ.

Let’s stop complaining and go do it!

We Can Do It!!

Spotlight-2.jpg

In a recent dream I saw a woman standing in total darkness. A bright spotlight pierced the darkness and lit her up. She held a microphone. She stood alone on a platform. Her head was down. She was dressed in white with a red wrap. She lifted her head. Her hair shone brilliant white and her eyes flashed with fire. At the top of her voice she shouted: I CAN! I CAN DO THIS! Then she began to sing in chant with great joy: I can! I can do this! over and over. I joined her in the dream and woke myself up saying “I can! I can do this!”

I took the dream to the the Lord in prayer and He gave me Psalm 98:1 “Oh sing to the Lord a New Song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the Victory!”

Some of the dream interpretation is obvious: The woman represents the church, the bride of Christ. The Light of heaven is upon her. She stands in purity wrapped in the blood of Jesus. She radiates glory and fire is in her eyes. She stands in a place of authority and her voice is amplified in the earth.

Holy Spirit also spoke this to me: Up till that moment in the dream, when she began to declare in song chant, she was not using her voice. And, by her words, there was a thought of failure and oppression of the enemy that needed to be dealt with through declaration.    1 Thessalonians 1:24 “He who called you is faithful, who also will do it.” came to mind.

Yes, Lord, let us sing a new song of faith in YOU, of trust that You can do great things as we take our stand and lift our voice declaring Your truth. Let Your Light shine brilliantly upon us and flow through us. Restore our joy in You for YES! we can do this! We can be Your Ambassadors in the midst of darkness declaring your Your marvelous love and works. There is Victory in Christ Jesus! AMEN!
