Tipping Point

Tipping Point

Greetings today from my backyard. The weather has been lovely here in Modesto so our table with the sun umbrella has become my getaway retreat. Other than an intrusion by my kitty wanting to sit on the keyboard, it’s quite peaceful in the mornings in my garden setting. It’s wonderful to have natural realms quiet in a sunny green place. As I reflected on that, I had the thought that it’s even more wonderful to have peace in a SONshine setting! During this roller-coaster transition time to reopening our states and nation my prayer for all of you is that you find a SHALOM retreat in the restorative light and wonderful presence of our Lord!

As I prayed this day in the warm sunshine, the Lord highlighted to me for all of us in the Body of Christ Romans 8:31 If God is for us, who can be against us?

With everything going on in our nation and the world, it has come to my attention that many intercessors/praying Christians are overwhelmed with requests for prayer from their family, friends, co-workers neighbors and even strangers. Combined with an assault by the enemy against our own families and work situations, stress and a sense of being pummeled by the enemy can sneak up on us. This is especially so when our personal challenges increase in intensity, or become chronic in persistence with no apparent answers from God to ease the storm we are experiencing. And, on top of it all, we usually have ministry commitments that require more prayer, not less.

Thoughts or feelings of abandonment can cloud our life as we wonder if we are being effective or if our Father in heaven has heard our prayers. Have you ever asked Him if He’s there? Wondered if Jesus is interceding for everyone but you and yours? Asked Holy Spirit if He was ever going to move on your behalf? I have, and I figure I’m not the only one!

In the middle of seemingly insurmountable personal challenge I am facing right now, those questions flowed out of me with tears. Then I picked up a book I just started called “IF” by Pastor Mark Batterson. Chapter 2 starts with Romans 8:31. About the verse he writes:

God is for you.

God is for you in every way imaginable.

God is for you for all eternity.

And a bit later he says: Spiritually speaking, the tipping point (in a person’s life or situation) is when you believe, without any reservation that God is for you. It’s the revelation that God doesn’t just love you, He likes you. He loves you enough to die for you, He likes you enough to spend eternity with you.

I believe many of us are at a tipping point time in our lives. A time of critical mass, on the threshold of huge change, and it’s about to boil over, or tip like a balanced rock when the earth shakes. The question for us overwhelmed intercessors/believers is will we tip for God and the new thing He has for us, believing He is for us? Or, will we tip toward giving up on His promises and against His new thing? This is reality right now for many, maybe all of us, as what our God is doing is very different. It can make us hesitant and afraid to venture His direction. This season has brought us to a place of deciding whether we are “all in” knowing He is good all the time, or rejecting His high call. Rejecting results in mediocrity, walking with Him constantly struggling in the land of fear and doubt.

The tipping point choice WILL change our lives forever. It’s scary, but it’s GOOD, because God is good and He is for us every step of the way! He, in His love for us, has brought us to this place of choice. Now, we must believe He is for us and bravely choose His new plan. The result? More powerful connection with God, more power packed prayers, and more of MORE! Not only that, there’s more on top of the more, because the verse also says that if He is for us no one can be against us! He will scatter the enemy!

In this season, May the King of kings surround you with His army of angels as you crossover the point of no return and head full speed into the GOOD THINGS our God has for you, in Jesus Name and for His glory alone…AMEN!

Praying health and wholeness for all of us!

With Love and JOY in our Lord,

Cheryl

To be Content

Content Kitty

In my “wonderings” with the Lord praying and asking Him what His purposes are during this difficult time in our nation and around the world, a specific scripture keeps popping into my head from Philippians 4:11-13: Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

While navigating this time of isolation, fear, panic, and global pandemic, I found it exceedingly helpful and comforting to know that the Lord is using all this to do a work in my heart and the hearts of His kids. He is intensely and precisely helping us separate out our dependence on other things and people so that we depend fully and completely on Him. In the USA there has been much we thought we could always rely upon. In the matter of a few days the Lord gave us a grand revelation: WE REALLY CAN’T RELY ON ANYTHING BUT HIM! All things in this earth are subject to change, even our ability to gather together to worship Him. Only His Kingdom is rock solid and it is not dependent upon a church building. It is Him and Him alone.

As our lives are turned upside down, we are being given a marvelous learning experience in how to be content in Christ whether we are abased or abounding, as well as, how to worship Him whether we can be face to face with each other or not.

Being so dependent on Him, unconcerned and trusting as are our sleeping pets, is the place He would have us dwell. Not that we have attained, but that we are willing to be changed and desiring to live that freely!

Note that Paul said “I have learned to be…” That tells me it is something he did not have at first, but that he had experiences Holy Spirit used to teach him. He leaned into Christ Jesus, trusted His Spirit, and depended on the Father step by step until he could say that he had learned how to be content in everything and that his strength to do so came fully and completely from His Savior. We can be examples of this kind of contentment in Christ to others. What an amazing witness to the fearful ones and pre-believers in our lives as we exhibit trust and not fear!

Thus, this very special opportunity for transformation and reset in our lives is full of heavenly treasures! It will produce in us more ability to understand the heart of God, to hear Him more clearly, and to pray prayers that line up with His will and ways. It is part of the Shalom of God to be whole in our hearts no matter our circumstances and to be hope-bearers to others for the glory of our Lord. Power packed intercession will result!

I don’t know about you, but during this time of isolation I discovered how much I took for granted. And, I also found out about the “crutches” I had created and depended upon that were unknown to me. I had no idea they were taking the place of fully depending upon God. As this revelation unfolded repentance poured out of me and gratefulness to God for every little thing He provided flooded my heart. And He has provided everything we need! Not what I may want, but all needs have been met.

In this season we MUST depend upon and trust Him and Him alone to take care of us and our loved ones; to keep us healthy, safe, and provided for. No longer can we step in and purposely or unknowingly try to birth our own dreams and future. We must seek HIM for everything. He has provided this time for us to discover our true condition and to learn to wait on His answers. As we stand fast and refuse to give in to the enemy’s plans, we will see the grandest most glorious victories!

Truly, He has spoken to me that as we stand fast in contentment, patience, and in the strength of our God, allowing Him access to the recesses of our hearts, and purpose to accept His transfiguring changes, when this time is over we will see an explosive launch of ministry! Amazing ministry, not only for those who are our leaders, but for all of us! A Magnificent Turning is upon us as we pass through this Very Great Test. The fulfillment of our destinies and His glorious presence is our reward!

May the Lord Richly Bless you with renewed purpose, fire, and fervor as you seek Him and step into His plans and purposes!

With JOY and Peace,

Rev. Cheryl

The Very Great Test

Testing Image.jpg

The last couple of days as I have prayed and pondered the ever increasing life changes we are all facing two thoughts keep surfacing:

  1. This is a very great test.
  2. The Lord is looking for changes of heart and habit.

In the midst of these circumstances of illness and fear,  be assured Holy Spirit is on the move in our lives BIG TIME! His goal is not only to help us but to teach us and change us.

Yes, the virus itself and the fear that is manifesting is certainly the work of the devil. We must stand in faith against it relying upon our God. And, that stand is the basis of the test.

Holy Spirit is dealing with me, perhaps you as well, during this stressful time. Soul searching questions arise out of my heart for myself and for the Body of Christ: Are we standing in faith praying trusting in and relying upon the amazing grace and love of God bought for us by the precious blood of Jesus or self-reliant? Are we panic praying or are we asking for direction and listening to the guidance of Holy Spirit? Are we still selfish beyond belief with an hoarding attitude, ungrateful, complaining, and reacting to these changes with deep seated fear? Or, are we thanking our God for what we do have, asking Him what changes we need to make during this time so that our lives are more pleasing to Him, and listening to Him regarding what we can do so that our neighbor’s needs are met?

You see we get an F on our test for fear response. God still loves us of course, but we will suffer greatly as we choose to do things out of selfish fear versus taking our fear to Him and asking Him to help us and, much more importantly, to help us to help others. 

Did you know that Holy Spirit will tell you who to help? And that He will tell you when to go out to get supplies. He will even tell you where to go to get what you or someone else needs.  He probably won’t direct you to what you want or what you desire to hoard, but He will direct you to the places where you can get what you and your family actually need. How do I know this? Because He is taking such good care of my husband and me. Wherever we feel led to go, what we really need is there! It has been astounding to walk into places with so many empty shelves and find the last package of noodles, the last bottle of anti-bacterial cleaner, the last package of toilette bowl cleaner, the last tube of Aspercreme (needed for sore muscles), the only bottle of tomato sauce, the last can opener (ours broke and we needed one), and tissues, wipes, foods, etc all there when needed. If we desired something and it wasn’t there,  after all His provision, its apparent we really don’t need it yet. When we do, I know I can trust Holy Spirit to guide us to the place where it can be found!

During this time it is vital we as a Body defeat our tendency toward fear and self-reliance. As stated earlier, Holy Spirit is impressing on me the great need for heart changes and habit breaking in all of us. Even the best of us can fail and fear, exhibit selfishness, complain instead of thank, and deal with habitual behaviors/attitudes that are displeasing to our Father in heaven. What better time than during isolation, like this season, to stop depending on other things, on other people, or on ourselves and choose to learn how to lean fully upon our wonderful loving God? What a great time to start praying together as a family or having family Bible study!  Living alone? What a great time to pray, read, and have a retreat with God; just you and Him where you can learn about His plans for your future.  For every one of us, what a perfect time for calling neighbors and friends to see how they are doing, especially those that need Jesus in their lives. Your call could be a salvation call. How exciting!

Remember, He is on the move. He is drawing people to Him. He has HOPE for us all! He has thoughts higher than ours and, as we call upon Him, He will tell us great and mighty things we don’t yet know.  He will even tell us who to call, email, or text.

A final word coming to me today is isolation is not really isolation in the Body of Christ. We are all ONE in Christ Jesus our Lord. We all listen to and are helped by the same Spirit and we all have the same Father in Heaven. He has already, way in advance, provided the perfect vehicles to not feel so alone. Reach out via telephone. Call instead of text and be blessed by the voice of a fellow believer.  Plan a video call, set up a conference call, and be encouraged by your brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus or encourage them. Tune into the streaming on Facebook and other sources featuring churches that are having online services. Watch inspirational messages and praise songs on YouTube and other websites when you feel down.  Praise God for the phone lines, internet, for Wifi and 4g. Isolation lonliness is state of mind and we must purpose to overcome it and help others in the process! With Holy Spirit’s help we will overcome and be victorious in our Lord.

How we go through this challenge is a huge witness to those that are pre-believers. It is indeed a very great test and it is hard to repent and change our ways, but we can pass the test and get an A+ (an awesome achievement heart change award) from our God as He sees the depth of our desire to do things His way no matter our circumstances.

You, we, are all very loved. God has not abandoned us or forsaken us! Instead, He is drawing us closer to Him. Transformation is His goal as we take a stand against this demonic attack and choose to lean fully upon Him as we do.  To all who are willing He is opening the treasures of His heart. Abundance of His presence awaits us!

With love and peace to you and yours,
Rev Cheryl

When God Dismantles your Kingdom

devastatedchurch

Today I write because a great metamorphosis is taking place. A Call has gone out from our Father in Heaven to hundreds in the body of Christ and the call is: Give Me your kingdom.

As I was listening to God about this call, I saw a great tug o’war. A castle and all it’s surrounding lands were the “rope.” The hand of God held on to one end. He ever so gently tugged at the rope. The other end was held by His kids. Unaware Father God was doing the tugging, they interpreted the disruption as attack. They used every bit of their strength to hold onto the rope and protect their castle and its lands. Father God let that go on for awhile lovingly watching. Then He pulled a little harder. The castle and the lands shook under the pressure of His loving grip and He spoke to them softly: Let Go. On the other end, His kids shook too. They were alarmed at the perceived intensity of attack hitting their kingdom. They armored up and went to war. They called reinforcements. They cried out to God for help to defeat the enemy destroying their land and what they had built for Him. Father God smiled so lovingly and let them go on like that for awhile listening carefully to their cries. And, then with great mercy He pulled even harder.  This time louder, He said with loving firmness: Let go.  At His voice part of the buildings around the castle collapsed. Part of the land fell away. On the other end, His kids collapsed with fear, confusion and grief over the losses. They fell on their faces and finally said the words Father had been waiting for: We repent. Show us Your will, Your plan, Your ways. We humble ourselves before You. We give you all. Help us in our weakness. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. With that, Father God took hold of the rope with power and the tug o’ war was over. The castle crashed to the ground. The castle was demolished.  But, the land was perfectly preserved, in fact better than before! He restored what had fallen away then He placed it back in their hands. It had turned ever so green and and lush. His love poured out to heal, strengthen and renew His kids. He swept away the castle ruins as His kids willingly gave Him each bit of the rubble. In exchange for the rubble, He gave them new dreams, new vision, new materials to build with, new plans, new ways and the land got more and more green. They flourished in His abundance and favor.

Our God requires a lot of those whom He loves. He requires absolutely everything!

Change and sacrifice is an ever constant process in the Kingdom of God that produces wonderful new things that glorify our King.  Or, perhaps more precisely,  it is the result of the advancement of the Kingdom of God in the earth. Wherever His breath blows, wherever He is working, there is change.    And, since the whole earth is His and the fullness thereof, that means our world is experiencing constant changes.

Who doesn’t get excited over the prospect of all things becoming NEW? The part we forget is that we have to let go of the old in order to receive the new. Sacrifice is always required if there is to be transformation.  If you are like me, I am very excited over prospect of all things becoming new in Christ Jesus.  I can pray and ask for that of God with enthusiasm and truly desire the change… that is until I am one of the souls in the middle of His mighty work of transformation.  My response and maybe yours too is WHOA, what’s going on here.  More than one time I dug in my heels, just like the vision He gave me, and fought for what is mine, not discerning the huge change was an answer to my prayers and a gift from my God.

Mercifully, He works soul by soul with slow, steady, deeply profound internal changes, perhaps over many years.  As we yield to those small steps, we become more like Him and step out doing His work.  We build our lives and ministries are launched.  Then the time comes for His new plans and seemingly overnight the ministries, the works, the thing we do for Him, what we thought was rock solid and even our highest call in Him,  He closes. The season is finished. The training is over.  Something new is on the way. When we don’t discern that He is requiring change and stubbornly hang on, suddenly those castles we have built  get shaken and eventually they collapse so that He can build up something better, something more reflective of Him. Something He has prepared for us and us for it. Yes, something that gives Him more glory and benefits humankind in ways we could never have imagined if He did not take this action. Continue reading

The Deadly Duo

deadlyduo
The Deadly Duo? From a recent movie?

No, I’m not speaking of a Marvel Comic Book team of evil characters! This team is far more insidious than that and real, not make believe. The deadly duo that I see destroying lives, visions, dreams, ministries, and people themselves is FEAR and PRIDE. These two are experts at hiding behind facades while eloquently manipulating situations and people. Fear is spirit, a really evil one, and Pride is a condition of the heart that allows the evil to do its nasty stuff.

They work in concert to keep an individual in a prison of what is familiar and easy, creating a life that requires little change and no risk-taking. In order to maintain that kind of environment, everyone around the person under the influence of the Duo is expected to remain the same. When the boat of life gets rocked, as it always does, Continue reading

Golden Grain of the Threshing Floor

golden grain

This morning Holy Spirit highlighted to me Micah 4:12-13 But they do not know the thoughts of the Lord, nor do they understand His counsel; for He will gather them like sheaves to the threshing floor. Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion, for I will make your horn iron, and I will make your hooves bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples; I will consecrate their gain to the Lord, and their substance to the Lord of the whole earth.

Immediately I heard from the Lord:

The USA has entered a time of threshing, but My people have little understanding of what I am about to accomplish through them.  As they come to KNOW Me, I will give them my thoughts, I will thresh them that they may become loving threshers for Me and bring to Me much golden grain. I will strengthen them, embolden them, and give them power to conquer with My love and truth. They are My consecrated ones. They are My substance in the earth.

“But, I know You, Lord!” you say back to Me. Do you? is My response. Yes, you have salvation, my dear ones, yet there is more! Continue reading

Beginning of Signs

watertowine

This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him. John 2:11

In a previous post the Lord spoke to my heart that He was ending some things right now, closing many doors, in preparation for a grand season of NEW.  (Read New Beginnings) This morning as I was asking the Lord what I needed to know in this season of endings and new beginnings, I felt directed to reread the first chapters of the Book of John.  As I read these favorite verses, suddenly they became as if I had never read them. The words became fresh and new, it fact alive.

In John Chapter 2 the story of Jesus turning water into wine simply overwhelmed me. It was like I was listening in on the conversation with Jesus and his Mother. I was visioning with the Lord.  In this type of vision I could see that the encounter was a tender exchange. Mary came to her son because she wanted to bless the bride and groom and the bride’s father, who was the host.  There was an intense sense that she completely trusted her son.  Also, that as His Mother, she knew him so well, and had observed Him and His capabilities for all His life, that she believed there was no one better suited than Jesus to bless the wedding and take care of the need.

His response was funny in the vision experience I was having. It was like He put his hands on his hips, cocked His head and with a grin said, “Gee Whiz Mom, I know you trust me to handle this, but I haven’t heard from my Father in Heaven on it.”  We know from scripture that He didn’t do anything unless He saw or heard it from His Father.  So, unless He did hear or see, it wasn’t going to happen. Mary knew that, because she knew Him so well. As I  continued to vision with the Lord, she smiles back at her son a knowing smile and then tells the servants to do whatever He says. After that she walks away. She appeared totally convinced He would do GOOD in this situation and would flow with blessing and provision. Continue reading

Beginning = Love One Another

potter hands

And now I plead with you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment to you, but that which we have had from the beginning: that we love one another. This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it. 2 John 1:5-6

In my walk with our Lord I have found over and over again that every ending means God has developed in me a greater capacity to keep His commandment to love one another as He has loved us.  (John 15:12) This increased capacity to love as He loves creates a new beginning and He opens new doors for me to walk through in order that I may demonstrate His love in fresh new ways.  The hard part of this process is always the ending of a season, especially if that season has been the center of my life. The closing of a door can be confusing if it is something I had come to rely upon or had thought I would be part of forever. It can be painful as closing doors always means I have to let go of something whether its my opinions, habits, status and position, financial, or even people. Often the new door is not clear and I have needed to let the old door close in obedience following the leading of Holy Spirit without knowing exactly where I am going or why.

In this process of beginning, for I am determined to look at each ending situation no matter how painful as an exciting new chapter in my life, Continue reading

the Green Room

Cave Green room 2

For quite some time I have been seeing the number 4 everywhere, usually 444. In my New Year letter to you I shared an article on that which can be read on this Blog. The fours have been so persistent, as I follow the Lord’s instruction to claim the promises of 4, that I have taken much time to sit with the Him and learn more about this message to us. What struck me was Green is the 4th color of the covenant rainbow God set before Noah. It is the color of the bow that is over the Throne of God. And, it is the color of change and renewal, as well as, a symbol of Spring and new life. It is also, I am hearing in my times with Him, a message to us that we are in a season of tremendous growth. This green growing season is most specifically for those who will or are seeking Him above all else.
He tells me there are hundreds, more likely thousands, of disciples of Christ Jesus who are right now in His “Green Room.” It is a place of waiting, of precision preparation and of such intense growth into His likeness that it aches and even hurts in the deepest places of our souls. This is a place of personal isolation, yet we are not really isolated. Life goes on around us and we are interacting and productive, but we are also separated out for a specific season with Him. It is hard to describe this place. It is doing daily tasks, attending church, or prayer group, interacting with others, but feeling out of sync with it all as Father God calls to us to cling to Him. Some in the Green Room are wondering if they have “lost it” as their life has so radically changed. What worked in the past, is not working now.
Past ways are not working because we are in a waiting room just this side of brand new – but, the good news is that even God’s waiting rooms are lush and green and full of life.  I saw this place as an emerald cave-like room. It has no furniture. As I entered the room I felt alone. But, then I realized He was there. He was everywhere. It was empty of worldly things on purpose. There was nothing in the room to distract me from Him. As I looked around the room sensing His presence suddenly stairs lit up; Beautiful Golden Stairs that led to a chamber where there was a white table with chairs. A young man in a white tunic sat at the head of the table and many others like me sat at the table. There was an empty chair for me and I sat down. Jesus, the young man, spoke with us there about life, His love, and His plans.
Yes, it is a room of separation and God Himself has called us to this chamber. In many ways it is a lonely place as the distractions of our lives,ministry, work, and achievements are stripped away. It is also a vitally necessary place. Once in the Green Room as we wait on Him we are privileged to find out how independent of Him we have really been; how much we have relied on ourselves and asked Him to bless what we have done.  It is also a lush place of rest. True rest in the Lord is rare, but those in the Green Room are learning to truly rest; to fearlessly trust their God and King.
Some are being called out to make surprising life changes. In many cases God has inspired this group to move to a new city where they know few or no one in order to get them to center their attention on Him alone. Others are being called to leave behind long time ministries as the doors close on that season and He prepares them for the new doors opening. Still others are being asked to give up some things very dear to them that are no longer needed for the season we have entered.  It can be a confusing time as the old is closed and the new is established. That is why this message is vital.
He says stay in the Green Room until it is time… This is important. Just as the green room in our culture is the place that people wait and do their last minute preparations just before they go on stage at the appointed time, His Green room is our last minute preparation before we go on His stage at His appointed time.   Yes, those of us in preparation right now are about to be revealed as sons and daughters of God; as Ambassadors of Christ who are Demonstrators of His Love, Power and Word.  A Spotlight will be upon those humble servants who persevere and are relentless in their pursuit of Him. They will not put themselves in the limelight. God Himself will shine His light upon and through them.
Be most blessed and full of HOPE & JOY!

Rapid Fire

firelion

For about two weeks now I have been hearing the words “rapid fire” echo in my mind and heart. Every time I think of and begin to pray over what has been happening in our nation since November, and especially the last three weeks, I find myself praying regarding the “rapid fire” changes taking place.

When our President took office his first weeks can only be described as “rapid fire” as he implements his campaign promises. Whether or not you like President Trump is not the point here, it is the speed at which change is occurring on all fronts…except one: The USA Church. But, not for long. Stability of the status quo of the USA church is not the Father’s goal for us. It is instead: metamorphosis.

This is what Holy Spirit spoke to me last week: In like manner of what your President is doing and with the same intensity of change that is happening in Washington DC, I will change My Church before your very eyes. This is an answer to the prayers of the remnant who have without ceasing labored in prayer and come to Me constantly on behalf of your nation, your states and your communities. Now, I am about to send RAPID FIRE CHANGE to My Ecclesia. My people must become My people in ALL ways.

Out of My intense love for you USA Ecclesia and because you have been entrapped by tradition and religion… because you have been prevented from rising to fulfill your destiny in Me by hundreds of years of circumstances, much of it beyond your control, rapid fire change is about to be released to set you free to be Me to lost, confused, deceived, dying souls. The anguish of their hearts cries out to Me and YOU are their answer. They need NOT to hear about your religion. They need to hear about ME!

An army of AMBASSADORS are finishing their training right now. When I release them, RAPID FIRE will flow through them. They will not care what men and women say about them. Criticism will role off of them. (Look to your President as an example of this remarkable trait I will bestow upon these ones.) They will hear Me. They will see Me. They will do what they see and hear. They will demonstrate My love and distribute My promises to those in great need.

Many in the institutional churches will be surprised by this, shocked and disturbed by the boldness of these MY Ambassadors of Rapid Fire Change. Beloved, I do not want you shocked and surprised as My holy desire and jealousy after you consumes all that was not instituted or built by Me; all that is entrapping you. Let Me prepare you now. Look at the changes in your nation as preparation for what is about to be released that will undo QUICKLY multiple years of bondage to half-truths and entrapment by words given to you by those who have, with well-meaning, perpetrated lies.

As quickly as the institutions of Washington DC have been inundated and plunged into change, the institutions of Christianity will experience the same. I am about to empower with Rapid Fire all who will receive during this season of transformation. You are about to undergo metamorphosis. What you have been will pass away and you will emerge in NEW LIFE. Yes, there is war in the heavenlies over your nation. Yes, there will be war over your lives as you answer My call to let the old pass away and you engage in the NEW. You will become part of My solution. Yes! My beloveds, do not fear this change! Embrace it! Choose instead to become part of My army of Ambassadors walking in My love, My light and My power.

Released 2-11-17 by Rev. Cheryl Birch

Addendum:
As I was researching today (2-13-17) more about “rapid fire” I found a prophecy from Chuck Pierce release January of 2016. While the prophecy is long, there is a short section I felt appropriate to post here as I believe what I received a couple of days ago is connected:

Watchmen Arise! A Year of Rapid Fire!
“Watchmen, arise. Let your tongues be the pen of a ready writer. As you write, as you bring down the strategies, I am going to cause doors to fall like dominoes. I am going to cause gates to be blown off the hinges. Watchmen, write what you see, write what you hear; I am fine-tuning your ears. I am opening your eyes in a new way. I am bringing you up to an aerial view, so you can look down into the enemy’s camp. You will speak and write specific things, and you will cause ambushments to be set in the enemy’s camp.

“Judah, Judah, I am waking you in a new way. For even as I caused the gates to shake for Paul and Silas as they prayed in the night, so Judah will be awakened in a new way. There is something I am awakening you to, to discipline you in, this year. So break through that fear that’s surrounding you.

“This will be a year of ‘rapid fire.’ This will be a year when I will be shooting down, like lightening, upon My people. For I am calling fiery warriors into place. I will do things in you that you have been waiting to see, but I will call you into a place where I want you to pave the way for others to see. Know that this is the year of the travail of rapid fire.
