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.
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,
“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!
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!

In prayer this past week the Lord’s word to me has been “You are stronger in Me than you think you are!” This I have realized is a word not only to me but to His church in 2016.
As I sought the Lord on this, He impressed on me that too many have forgotten what it means to be be strong in in His Might (Ephesians 6:10). The reality in the Kingdom of God is that the weaker and more dependent on God we are, the more we are strong in Him. Paul and the writer of Hebrews knew this. Both said that out of weakness we are made strong.
It is a matter of dependence, not partial dependence, but full dependence upon God. Knowing that no matter what goes on in our lives, if we endeavor to rely fully on Him, He infuses us with His strength.
Right now, in 2016, in His mercy He is intensely training a huge number of His chosen revealing to them where they are self-reliant. You may feel like your world fell apart, and it did because His goal is total dependence upon Him! Whether it is a storm going on in our personal lives, an infirmity, or He calls us to step out of our comfort zone to minister to others for His Kingdom purposes, He is about the business of proving that our greatest victory is when we give up our ways and do it His way. When we finally say we are not able, but we know our God is able, He gives us the words and the actions that will glorify Him… He gives us His love and compassion for those He sends us to or we are sent to. He gives us His wisdom in every kind of situation.
Humility is the key. There is absolutely nothing we can do to build His Kingdom without relying upon Him. As the body of Christ embraces total God-dependence, there is a new boldness coming! In 2016, an army of God-dependent sons and daughters are going to step out of their time of testing and the temptation to give up…they will show forth whom they serve in great confidence. Doubt, unbelief, wavering, fear etc will be gone replaced by perfect love and they will be radiant ambassadors exhibiting the character and qualities of Christ Jesus their Lord.
Be encouraged! You are stronger than you think you are in Christ!
Never Give up! The Father has only GOOD in mind for you!
