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.

Call to Fast Jan 15th – 22nd

welcome-2017-night-sign

We are in a most remarkable time in history. Though not much is “normal”, there is a lot of division, name calling and angst, the good news is our God is not surprised, He is still on His throne, the end of the world has not arrived (yet), and He has a perfectly wonderful plan for the USA to fulfill her destiny and glorify Him. We have taken many detours, but none-the-less, we are still on the road to His best for us! It’s hard to see the goal right now. The future is indeed hazy as the old passes away and the Lord institutes HIS NEW. In order to get clarity on our purpose, role, direction both individually and corporately during this time of change, the Lord put on my heart to fast 7 days from sundown on Jan 15th through sundown on January 22nd.

Read more about the fast by clicking this link: https://www.facebook.com/notes/cheryl-birch-ministriesinc/a-call-to-fast-jan-15-21/1356976201000635

This is a multiple purpose fast to humble ourselves and draw closer to Him for redirection and refreshing… AND, for the transition of our nation from one President to another with PEACE. It is vital that we get in sync with our Father’s plans for us, our city, state, and nation. We MUST bless President Obama as he leaves office and bless President-Elect Trump as he enters office. That is our role as the ecclesia! To pray for all leadership whether we like them or don’t like them…. “that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior…” 1 Tim 2:1-3

I will be posting scriptures, prayers, encouragement and whatever Holy Spirit speaks to my heart on our ministry page at www.facebook.com/cherylbirchministries. If you are fasting with us, make sure you have “liked” our page and watch for those posts!

2017 and beyond – renewal 444

gold-number-4gold-number-4gold-number-4

I am so excited over what Holy Spirit is speaking to my heart and the encouraging words He is releasing for those following after Jesus – 2017 is a year of increased exchange of religious works for relationship with Father God. As the Breath of God brings more and more change there will be Acceleration like never before! Four winds are being released for this next 4 years! (more on that later) I am seeing 444 everywhere as a message from the Lord – He spoke to my heart to claim “the promise of 4” as we are swept into a dynamic convergence that is bringing new breath, new life, new winds, new season for the body of Christ (Ezekiel 37:9).

It is also a season for intense intercessory mediation (not only meditation but mediation -standing in the gap) and declaration – with mediocre ineffective prayer disappearing steadily from every gathering of the saints over the next months and years . It’s a time for dreams, destiny and vision fulfilled that will wipe away all stains of a long season of hope deferred… it will be studded with amazing encounters with God as He, Himself, steps up His work to conform us into the image of Christ so that our Lord Jesus may be glorified in us. Yes, that means increased transformation leading to total reformation of people, groups, ministries, and church as we know it.

It is time for us who have never given up and have pressed into the things of God to take our seats of authority in His Name. As we do, Cities, over the next few years will have “changed in day” experiences and we will see nations exalted and nations brought to their knees as the glory of the Lord is visibly seen upon His own.

Stay in the Word saints of God, let Holy Spirit do His work in you and know you are surrounded by heavenly Hosts to help you and protect you – Be brave, be bold, and trust HIM as He calls you to unusual things! This is going to be quite the year and quite a 4 year period! As the Lord reveals more about 444, I will post again.

With love, joy and GREAT HOPE in our Lord, Rev Cheryl

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!

Strong in the Lord

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.

bowedDown

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!

With love,

Rev. Cheryl

 

In Christ you CAN do it!

ICanDoAllStrengtensMe

A word for 2016:

While some folks are reporting tremendous breakthrough in the New Year, others find themselves suddenly plunged into heavy challenges or, all the overwhelming junk of 2015 simply continued to be overwhelming. I am rejoicing with those reporting breakthroughs, but I am also standing in faith for all of the body of Christ who are feeling heavy laden.

Though some days you may not want to even get out of bed, this is the truth: You CAN do all things needed in your life through Christ who strengthens you… If you yield, He takes over. Not like you are a puppet, but suddenly and supernaturally, with the help of the Holy Spirit, the physical strength is there and divine purpose to continue walking with Him becomes more important than the challenges faced.

Good News! In the midst of the challenge know this: you are being refined and made more like Him!

All you need to do is trust and believe – He is doing all the work in you to make you pure silver and gold. Rejoice in Christ Jesus in the midst of trials knowing there is always a divine purpose and plan for YOU.

With love to you beloveds,

Rev Cheryl

Pray Like Never Before

PrayUSA

On June 26th, a day of great change for our nation, the Lord spoke these three phrases to me: ‎Pray Like Never Before‬; the‎ USA Has Destiny In Christ Jesus;‬ ‪‎Arise Church‬!

Then He gave me this message:
If ever there was a time to pray Church, it is now. Hatefulness, name calling, and vengeful attitudes will do nothing to change the hearts of people or the spiritual atmosphere of our nation. If you are angry allow the Holy Spirit to turn it into a Holy Fire of intercession. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the evil, overcome it by releasing good through praying scripture. If you are fearful, choose to trust God, (yes you can choose to trust and not be afraid) and pray in faith with His vision for the destiny of our nation.

God is not through with the USA. He is helping us, the church, to awaken and arise in Him. Our years of lack of prayer and little to no unity among the churches got us here. My firm belief is that the answer is in the mouth and actions of the body of Christ. Fervent faith-filled prayer, declarations, intercession and endeavoring to love one another as Christ has loved us will begin the process of change. Setting aside differences, embracing our sameness in Christ, becoming ONE as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are ONE (John 17) will turn the nation back to God because we, the church, have turned to Him as our only source and hope.

Our job is not to curse those who are bound in sin, but to soul by soul share the Gospel, the good news that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever would believe on Him would have eternal life (John 3:16). It is time to come out of the shelter of our church walls like never before in history and love on people as Jesus has loved on us. Be His healing hands, His loving eyes, and His voice of truth! We are the place where heaven meets earth and our greatest hour is upon us, if we will do it His way!
