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

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!

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

2015 – The Year of Answered Prayer

happy-new-year-2015-wood

As we enter 2015 the Lord is speaking to me how important it is that we keep our feet firmly planted in His word, a strong foundation, and our eyes fixed constantly upon Him with our spiritual ears open to hear His voice. The things He is about to do in the world will look mighty strange to us- What He is about to ask of us will feel mighty unusual to us – the reaction of our already defeated enemy will be frightening to us – IF we are not fixated on Christ Jesus. We must have compassion on the world’s difficulties, but see through His eyes and KNOW His love for us, KNOW His blood covers us and KNOW His peace that surpasses all understanding. Don’t get caught in sorrows. He is our JOY, our provider and our protector! This is a year for us to shine for Him like never has there been opportunity before! We are to be His translators and His Ambassadors in a powerful NEW, all NEW, way! We are about to see the answers to years and years of prayers! Not only our prayers, but those of the saints gone on before us! Be ready to translate what you see and hear in the Spirit to speak to the hurting and change hearts in the earth. Prepare now in His presence to be His Ambassador wherever you go, not just sometimes, but always, in every place. There is an intercessory flow pouring out of heaven. A new wind of refreshing for those of us in the trenches AND thousands of new recruits about to join us and lift the load!!!! We have held the line and never given up and the Lord is about to start an advance – we are about to climb to new places. Shake off all past disappointment, stop wondering if you are in the right place in God’s Kingdom, and step into trust, great faith and more understanding and wisdom. Pray, intercessors, Pray with confidence. This is the year of answered prayer!

Climb!

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

Today the Lord spoke to my heart regarding the New Year. He had shared with me in October that it would be a pivotal year for the church – click here to listen to the prophetic word. I have been asking Him how the church will ever make the turn toward Him that is so vitally needed. In November He gave a prophetic teaching that equated His body of believers to Elisha following Elijah no matter the cost in order to receive his master’s mantel double-fold. The word indicated that 2015 would begin a special journey to receive Jesus’ mantel as His sons and daughters. To listen to the message click here. During my time with Him this morning I received more information about the journey. This is what I wrote:

Matthew 17:1-8
Mark 9:2-7
Luke 9:28-34

Prepare to climb, My beloved. It is time to ascend to a high mountain with Me. Higher than you have climbed before. Come away with Me to this secluded place where you will awaken and see Me in NEW Light. A place where your image of Me is transfigured. A place where you can see into the supernatural realms; and see what I see. A place where you hear the voice of the Father and His loving instructions. Transformation of who I am to you is about to take place in your heart and mind. So, prepare to climb by bowing down in humility. The lower you are in relying on yourself, the higher you can climb with Me. know during this trek it is vital that your reliance is on Me and Me alone. Such glory you will see! Such wonders you will hear! All to take back to a lost and dying world full of violence, fear, hurt and pain. You are to be a translator of My hope, an imparter of My love, a giver of My healing, a preacher of My salvation.

How to climb? Pick up your cross and follow after Me. A world full of souls that need My love and salvation awaits your completion. How you see Me must be transformed. Great sacrifice of reliance on worldly things; great gain of My Kingdom and treasures that no earthly endeavor can reveal awaits.

When I call, CLIMB!
