Who’s Your Daddy?

“Lay down your spiritual warfare weapons,” said the voice of the Lord I have come to know, love and obey. My response: HUH?

The apparent warfare around me and around the body of Christ screamed out in demand of increasing every spiritual warfare technique I had ever learned.  To lay down all of that felt contrary to everything I had learned from my mentors, teachers, and pastors. In six words the Voice I loved had negated every spiritual warfare seminar and conference I had attended as well as every book I read and video series I had watched. Even closer to home, it wiped out what I had taught hundreds of others. Thus, it was hard for me to receive those 6 words.

Then started the conversation with Holy Spirit.  Not sure why I persist with this habit, none-the-less, it always starts out: But, Lord….

I had a lot of “But, Lords” to state and “How can it be” questions to ask. Seemed that He already knew that and He spoke to me in His loving, soft, gentle, yet firm way, “You’re doing it all wrong.”  My answer: HUH?

No doubt, we His kids, can be quite comical to Him at times I am sure.  In this case, I am certain my astonishment must have been amusing because I heard His wonderful laughter wash over me. All I could feel was joy and peace followed by love and acceptance. What could I say to that except, “Yes, Lord”? And, because He apparently knew I was ready to hear Him on this topic, I yielded, albeit a bit begrudgingly, and turned my inner ear toward Him.

It wasn’t what I heard, but what I saw next that impacted me.  I saw a small child (couldn’t tell boy or girl) chased by the enemy (demonic beings) running toward flowing purple fabric. The child ran into the fabric and disappeared. While watching this vision, I realized the child was hiding behind the leg of a man wearing leather sandals. In moments, the child, comforted and strengthened by the encounter with the man, peeked out. The enemy was a great distance away.  The enemy could not approach the man or the child.  The man spoke over the child lovingly and kindly. After awhile the child lifted their hand and repeated the words of the man. As the words were released, power flowed and the enemy disappeared completely.

Hiding in the robe of the Father

A lesson in an intense way of intercession began that day.  Holy Spirit pointed out the child was not dressed in armor as I had pictured it. The child was not holding a sword or a shield.  The child was not shouting or yelling at the devils. The child was standing strong, at peace, full of joy and lovingly protected in the purple skirts. The child listened, learned and repeated what the man said.  And the man? …. Continue reading

Perceptions

Perception

Today the Lord  spoke to me: Your perceptions must be My Perceptions.

For the past week Holy Spirit has been reminding me of revelation He gave me years ago about our Noema – that is the Greek word used in the Bible to describe how we perceive things. It is a complex combination of what are the facts and what we feel about those facts. Interestingly, how we feel about the facts can outweigh those facts. Sounds, smells or fragrances, good and bad memories, mindsets, habits, and imagination form an oleo that becomes our truth about a situation, our lives, or other people.  Once we believe something is true we begin to live our life according to it – whether it is really true or not.

Many in the body of Christ have or are about to step through a wide open door into a new season of walking with the Lord and being demonstrators of who He is. On the Other Side of the Door is increased glory on earth and the Beginning of Signs.  We will be freer than ever as we will have cleansed hearts and minds. We will have let go of heavy burdens at the feet of Jesus. We have learned how persevere, to remain humble, to rest in Him and we will have received His light yoke in exchange for our busy work, work, work religious attitudes. (Read Beginning of a Light Yoke Era)  The first days on the other side of the door flowing in glory will be so full of JOY!  There is always celebration when burdens are gone and we are released into a new season. The people of the world will be drawn to what they see in us. The harvest will increase as we share our joy in Jesus! We will be living Psalm 126.

As I visioned with the Lord, suddenly I saw… Continue reading

Beginning of a Light Yoke Era

Hebrew_chet

Good news is pouring out of heaven to me today as it has for the past two days. As Yom Teruah just ended and we have begun the 10 days of Awe, ending with Yom Kippur,  Holy Spirit is leading all in the body of Christ, who will listen and yield to His promptings, into a new era. Yes, I said ERA.

This is the season of the year when our God makes changes. He ends things and begins things. Sometimes that is for the year, or the decade, or the century or all three. Today, I kept hearing from Him that a new era has begun where the body of Christ will steadily become the spotless wrinkle free bride for whom Jesus will return. She will be worry free, fear free, prejudice free, bitterness free, hate free… she will be FREE! No wrinkles of life will be left that cause her to stumble and fall. She will rise out the ashes of this life with none of the sorrows upon her. She will have finally developed eyes for Jesus only.  And, as she goes to Him He will present her with His “Light Yoke.”  This is the KEY to the new door He has opened wide. (Read Other Side of the Door). This is the KEY to the new era.

Matthew 11:28-29 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Holy Spirit also showed me today … Continue reading

The Other Side of the Door

A Fall Feasts Vision for 5778/2018 and beyond…

I stood watching a door that was opening wide. It has been slowly and steadily opening for awhile. But most of the body of Christ has not been aware of this remarkable opening  they are, however, aware of the great changes taking place in the earth since 2010. That is what Holy Spirit spoke to me. Further He said to my heart: Light has always streamed through the door, but you were not yet in the days of its opening. Child, you were not yet ready for the New Beginning on the other side of the door!

As I watched the scene unfold before me and saw the door fully opened, where I stood became darker and darker in comparison to the brilliant light streaming through the door. As my eyes adjusted to the contrast, I saw a broad green expanse on the other side of the door. There was a beautiful azure sky with puffy clouds gently floating on a lovely breeze, and a very special warmth radiated from the sun. I believe I stepped closer and closer to the door as I could see more and more clearly. I saw… Continue reading

Transfiguration: a Vision for the Decade

submission

In September of 2014 I had a vision of what looked like a body with its head on backwards. Upon close observation in the vision I could see it was actually a head with its body on backwards… This intensely unusual scene revealed the condition of the body of Christ and Lord’s plan to totally transform His people by the end of this decade. This year He continued to reveal His victorious message of hope contained in the vision. Listen to the prophetic message released on September 25, 2015 by clicking here.

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!

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?
