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)

We have job to do!

“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!

Best of Times or Worst of Times?

It-was-the-best-of-times

 

It is seems these words by Charles Dickens in the Tale of Two Cities mean even more to us today than ever…

As  I was praying and listening to the Lord today these words kept echoing in my heart. My own challenges and the list of folks in desperate need of prayer for healing, finances, jobs, relationships, recovery, depression, grief and more seems to be longer than ever. Combined with dooms day prophecies and the endless stream of bad news from around the state, nation and world…
It appears we are in the worst of times. At least that is what the demonic forces want us to believe. 
 
But, it is NOT what I believe!

 

Raise up your heads brothers and sisters in Christ, shake off that heaviness, get your faith revved up!

 

These are indeed the BEST OF TIMES ever in the history of the planet!!! 
 
I am so excited over what our amazing awesome awe inspiring Father in Heaven is up to all around us! Unfortunately, especially in the USA, a cloud of demonic gloom has been trying to hinder the body of Christ. Too many of our prophets have tapped into that gloom seeing what is going on in the “second heaven” (where the demonic spiritual activity occurs) and the natural world where the enemy works manifest through people and world systems.  And, way too many in the body are believing we are suffering God’s wrath and that the bowls of judgement are pouring out upon us.

 

Good Grief everyone, the Bible is extremely clear that we, His kids, will NOT suffer His wrath. (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.) The blood of Jesus has set us apart and before any final judgments and wrath pours out we will be in His arms. No, we aren’t there yet brothers and sisters! We are still in the dispensation of GRACE, maybe the very last days of it, but we are still covered by the blood, wrapped in His love and walking in mercy and grace here on earth. In fact, if we will look up to Him, and to what is happening in the “third heaven” where He dwells, instead of at the doom the demonic camp is trying to peddle, we will burst forth into joy, glory and favor here on earth as has never ever never been seen before!

 

How do I know this? Well, I know it because I am walking in the glory and favor.

 

Sure I have challenges and some are down right nasty, but I am not focusing on that! I am focusing on the greatness of my God!  In the past 2 years, I have seen more prayers answered and prophetic words come to pass than in my whole 26 years as a believer. In the past year, there has been more shifting and changes bringing about reconciliation and unity in the body of Christ than has ever happened in the entire history of this city and region. Apostolic and prophetic doors are opening that no man could have opened and no man can shut throughout the Central Valley and our State. Unified efforts in prayer from Alaska to the Baja on the west coast are growing!  For me personally, the opportunities to be an ambassador for Christ and to be a catalyst for unity are exploding. And, I see the same happening for everyone that is fixing their eyes on the the goodness of God and listening intently to His voice.

 

I am not seeing or hearing anything that is doomsday from the Lord. The numerous edifications and encouraging words pouring out of His heart tell me that…If ever there was a time to be encouraged and expectant, it is now!

 

What I am hearing is that it is time for a mature, faith-filled, saturated with love, walking in peace and joy, power of God reliant Army to rise up out of this challenging time.

 

It is the birth of and refining of this Army that is most on the Father’s heart. Our relationship with HIM is the most vital component of our future. Is He your vital source? Second, as Believers, it is so important that we do our job and BELIEVE right now that God is still in control. He is still on the throne, Jesus is still “ever making intercession” for us, Holy Spirit is still walking with us, guiding us, teaching us, protecting us, His Angelic Hosts are still helping us. Third, it is high time we rested in that awesome safety net knowing that whatever He calls us to do, we can do! Working in our own strength must stop. We cannot go forward until we are operating in His strength alone and trusting that His plans are perfect even when they mess up our plans, or maybe better said, when they correct our course to line up with Him.

 

Don’t let the deceiver and destroyer turn your focus to his plans and to the world’s craziness as the measure of your future. Your future is GLORIOUS! Allow whatever challenges you are facing to be used by the Holy Spirit to make you more like Jesus! When we are refined, renewed, refreshed, reformed, and revived… Wow! The Kingdom of God will begin to be established here on earth as it is in heaven!

 

Be encouraged, walk in confidence and joy knowing that God has not forgotten or forsaken you… your greatest hour is at hand!

 

With love,

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.

A Season to Draw Close, Fast and Pray!!!

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

Beloved Intercessors,
No matter where you live in the world, I believe it is vital that we start a fast and right away! It is a season to draw as close to the Lord as we possibly can.

I have been hearing about a need to fast coming from many different camps this past week and had planned to fast later in the month with another group – I will still do that. However, the ongoing assault against the intercessors and ministries on the front-line, not only in our area but everywhere, (from loss of loved ones, to sudden illnesses, to loss of income, to car accidents and on and on) is not abating with prayer alone. Then I must add to that the call to fast by the Lord this past Friday when I was praying for one of the mighty men of God in our city, to me Equals = we need to ramp up our prayers for break-through by adding some good old fashion denying of flesh. That is best done through a fast and I know it cannot wait!!!

The goal of the fast is to get closer to God, listen to Him, seek Him for Him, let the needs be known and allow Him to break down our selfish ways, and ultimately to defeat the enemy. Respond in declarations and proclamations as He reveals things, otherwise simply let Him arise and scatter the enemy as you draw closer and closer to Him.

Since this is quite sudden, which is designed I am sure to take the enemy by surprise, I am asking you join in the fast as best you can as soon as you read this.

Those of you that have fasted with us before know that I leave it to you how deep you wish or need to go into the fast. This season of fasting is immediate through the end of the month. We will fast until Saturday 9-12-15 take a short break and fast 9-17-15 to 9-21-15. I will post any additional dates.

While “fasting” television and electronic diversion is good during this time, it is not what the Lord is calling for. We are doing a food fast. Instead of spending time prepping food and eating, spend time praying and seeking to draw close to God.

Here are ways to fast for various folks that find fasting a physical challenge:
1. If you are taking medications that require food or are under a doctor’s care – please choose “giving up treats” as your fast to the Lord. For example: If you love your cup of coffee in the morning, give that up during this time or anything else that you will greatly miss, but will not affect your meds or health.

2. If you are working and need some energy during the day, a Daniel fast would be recommended or fasting a meal each day.

3. If you must have protein or you become ill, then give up carbs and sugary treats during the fast.

For everyone else choose any combination of fasting for the 7 day period. You can choose to do one thing all the days or a different type of fast each day. You and the Lord need to decided what He is asking of you.

Here are some ways to fast:
1. Daniel Fast: primarily veggies of all kinds, mush (like oatmeal), lentils, beans,
and fruit or nuts in small amounts
2. Juice and broth fast (no solid food,only liquids)
3. Eat only one meal a day – water, juice or broth the other meals
4. Give up one meal a day – eat very simple small meals the other 2 times
5. No food, water only (again, if you are not healthy enough to do this even one day,
choose another fast)

The enemy has to let go of what belongs to the Lord and thereby belongs to us! I see this fast working like a crowbar and prying the enemy’s grubby fingers off of everything he has grabbed. All glory to God because He is the one that will accomplish the victory as we turn to HIM!

Thank you for joining in whether it is one day or the entire season of fasting.
With love and joy to you
Remember to pray for each other!!!

Transition to Glory

Ancient Gate from dark to light

If ever there was a time to pray in all of history, it is NOW!

The spiritual SHIFT of the ages is upon us! The Lord is opening His ancient door and we are in passage to something wonderful in this remarkable season! As we move into the Feast of Trumpets, the Days of Awe and Yom Kippur – we can expect this huge shifting in the times and timing of the Father’s plans to impact the earth. He has been speaking to me for months now that we are in a Transition time to “full glory.” Things are happening all around us that are paving the way to culmination of this dispensation and the birthing of a whole new heaven and earth.

Those whom He is preparing in the body are about to become humble selfless Demonstrators of His NEW! Like a preview of what is to come, thousands of God’s anointed ones will move in concert to glorify Him in power.

Our journey through this Shift to the opening of His ancient doors to living with Him in Glory needs an abundance of prayer. We are dedicated to that prayer! We will be meeting this month on our usual 2nd Friday and that happens to be 9-11. This is not coincidence!

I believe the Lord is calling all who will hear to a season of more than ever intense intercession. And the call is LOUD and URGENT! When change of this magnitude is on the horizon, we must be in prayer so that we stay in one accord with His perfect plan, His word, and with each other.

Listen and you will hear the Trumpet Call to Prayer!

If you are in the Modesto CA area, join us at the Days Inn Modesto on Friday 9-11-15 at 7 Pm in room 105

Blessing you to stand strong in the Lord and the Power of HIS Might!
