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)

On March 7th I had a most wonderful prophetic dream adventure with the Lord. While the dream has MUCH to say and was fairly lengthy, within the dream came a specific scene and prophetic word that I know I am to share with all of you as encouragement. I will be posting the dream when I am finished with praying through to a more full interpretation. In the mean time, for those of you that have been laboring in the Lord for many years, have been waiting on your dream, vision and destiny that He spoke to you would come to pass, and/or you have experienced what seems like delays and failures… this word is for you!
.

Excerpt from the dream I call “Emerald” –
I don’t know how we got there but suddenly we were at a picnic-like place in the valley. I had seen this place from the ridge. When I looked around, Emerald was high up the mountain to my left.   There were many tables and chairs, but very few people were there.  The tables were all white. Most were under white canopies and there were white pennant shaped long banners on poles waving in the breeze. It was lovely.
 
We were gathered there in the sunshine for quite a while. I remember walking around. But, I don’t remember interacting with anyone.
 
Finally, one of the planners said “This failed – let’s go talk.” Everyone that attended the event, including me, sat down at a long white table in the sunshine. I remember that because sitting in the direct sun was wonderful and I am a shade seeker.
 
I listened to the group talking for a time. They were discussing their failure and wondering what went wrong.  Then, while I wondered what I was doing there with everyone, the Lord spoke to me very clearly. 
 
He said: There is man’s timing and there is My timing.  This event was planned in man’s timing.  A Page is about to be turned in My Book and when the Page is turned, My Plan will come to pass as it is My Timing.  Fret no longer over what you perceive as failures.  It was not yet time! You have been sowing into your destiny.  When the Page turns, everything you do will succeed in Me!
 
I stood up and told the group of this message from the Lord.  Several turned to me and said: Who are you? They were angry.  A couple of them got up and hugged me and said: Thank you!  The leader, the young man with glasses and sandy brown hair, I had seen before, and a young thin Hispanic man both said: Listen to her. We see this event was done in our own strength and timing. None the less, it is good seed for our future. Now, we will wait on our God.  
 
After they said that, all of us hugged one another.
 
This scene came in the middle of the dream. I am sure you are curious about Emerald and how the dream ends. I will share that soon. The most important part right now are the words of the Lord.  He is about to turn a page. It fact, I am certain that the shaking and stirring going on in the world is because He has lifted the corner of the page in His book. When He actually turns the page, life will change completely for all of us.
.
.
We are in a time of preparation for that change right now. It is a season of training and discipline. So many leaders and long time intercessors are reporting they are in a season that is very challenging. Both difficult things and wonderful things are happening at the same time.  The difficult things at times are overwhelming and for some it has slowed them down or stopped them completely from ministry. But it is all in the Father’s hands. We are in a place of being purified in the valley (white banners & canopies) and purged of leaven of this world (read Purging Revival). Those who are willing have been practicing planning sessions with God, waiting on Him, and sowing into what they will be doing in the new season to come. Though the results have not always been what we hoped, nothing that we have done is wasted or a failure in Christ Jesus. No, it has all been training, even our mistakes.  His Bride WILL BE READY for the turning of His Page!
 
Be encouraged and get excited. The Father has HUGE wonderful amazing plans for His sons and daughters. Truly, no matter how good He has been in our lives, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet! There is much more goodness to come!!!
With love,
Rev. Cheryl

Pentecost 2015

Prophetic release May 22, 2015

pentecost-fall-545-p

(From the Lord) This Pentecost will be like no other. Be Alert! Something remarkable is about to happen. In the past there have been cities or churches where I demonstrated My Love and Power. In this season, it will not be the same. It will not be one or two places that I visit with demonstration, it will be all over the world at the same time. My Spirit, My very person, will touch My churches and they will KNOW Me and they will be made new. I will press into them all over, in every nation, in every city and I will do it all at once and it will change the face of My church. Worldwide I will do this.

Release My Angels with your prayers. Release them tonight to circle the globe. Circle the globe to the North, South, East and West and every point in-between. Angels of refreshing, renewal, reformation, revival. Angels bearing joy, peace, comfort, healing, revelation, wisdom, understanding. Release with your prayers My Angels carrying scrolls of Discipleship. Angels taking scrolls of Discipleship, My Words, to converts worldwide. They shall be converts no more! They shall receive the Words they need. They shall not be stunted and hindered any longer by religious walls and lack of commissioning. They shall grow and be My Sons and My Daughters.

An explosion of My love will hit My church. This Pentecost, this Shavuot, is not like others. Ready yourselves for I will begin this Pentecost.

Dead dry churches. I (Cheryl) see a dead dry church. Everyone in their Sunday best. Sitting on the pews with blank faces. Suddenly a wind. A mighty wind. Rushing sound of a wind hits that place. They cannot help but praise HIM, they explode with PRAISES for their King Jesus! They are refreshed, they are freed. The prison doors are opened. The Holy Spirit will set prisoners FREE to worship the King of Kings, King Jesus! It begins this Pentecost!

Angels are here. I (Cheryl) see what looks like aprons. They are shimmering with glory. They are not aprons they are being tied around the shoulders of God’s people.Release with your prayers Angels carrying mantels. They are new mantels. The old is being removed and a new mantel is being given for this season. The mantels will strengthen, refresh, increase and make new! Mantels of confidence, mantels of new energy, zeal and passion, mantels of joy, peace, hope.

When the people step into these new mantels they will release joy wherever they go, peace wherever they go, hope wherever they go, passion, zeal, renewed strength and energy wherever they go… in great confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ! This is new all new!!!

(back to the Lord) My Sons, My Daughters walking in new mantels, throughout the whole earth, the old removed, the new has come. You are receiving new mantels tonight. My Church shall receive new mantels this Pentecost, this Shavuot is not like others. I am gifting Myself to you in a new way.

My Church is ARISING! She shall not be hindered any longer. Demonic forces shall not stop her. Religious dead rules shall not hinder her. She is rising up NOW! This Pentecost she shall walk in the fire of my love. She shall reflect ME. Suddenly, My church shall be seen for who she is in ME!

…..

This was received and released at our worship and bible study Friday May 22nd at about 8 PM. The Holy Spirit grabbed the meeting and we moved in intense intercession followed by these words and visions. I have endeavored to clarify what I heard the Lord speak to me and what I was seeing and interpreting. While we were praying and releasing angels Pam saw this: “I was seeing a man on a horse. He was a king with a crown and he had a scepter extended upward. He moved the scepter as if pointing it when you released and commissioned the angels to take the scrolls.”

May this prophetic release be an encouragement to you! Be expectant this Pentecost. Something wonderful is about to happen!

Prayer Alert

redalarm

For over a year I have been encouraging the intercessors and remnant leaders to pray for each other because the Lord showed me our prayer covering needed strengthening. The amount of prayer needed for the days we are in is insufficient as too many folks are not praying or they are wavering in unbelief as they pray. This has been a continuous “nudging” and reminder by the Holy Spirit.

On 4-13-15 I heard an alarm sounding. It is like an insistent alarm clock and it is LOUD. The Lord is telling me it is a Prayer Alarm. We need to pray for each other and families NOW, body of Christ! This message is time sensitive. Something is shaking and stirring and we need a release of angels to set up a perimeter and right now! I am calling out to the Father to set up shields over the intercessors, remnant leaders and those whom we love. To protect our cities, states and nation! There is no panic or fear in this. If we obey and pray all will be well! The Blood of Jesus has already made a way for us!

Some things have already occurred in the lives of many of you this past 2 weeks. If there has been illness, hardship, tragedy or accident… Pray, believe, BELIEVE BIG, do not waver and the Lord will quickly heal and restore. Waves of glory will pour out of heaven to wash away all pain, hurt, fear. What remains is love power and a sound mind! This skirmish will quickly end as we unite in prayer agreement.

This message is for the world wide church: The enemy cannot prevail!! The God of all the Universe is about to scatter him.

Reformation has begun… Restoration is assured! Revival is imminent! Restitution is on the way!

Pray Big! Believe Big!

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!

It’s our Greatest Hour…Do not fear!

Heaven

Ya know church, we are entering our greatest hour! Isaiah 54 is for us: Sing! Enlarge the place of your tent! Spread out and prepare for many to come into the Kingdom of God! Then our Lord also says: FEAR NOT. Why? Because our enemy is on the move to deceive us into thinking we are doomed when, in fact, we are entering GLORY!

I have been feeling strongly in the spirit that we are about to see many things in the natural world that will cause sweeping fear among the people both believers and not. There has been quite a lot of bad news lately, but this will be more intense, very disturbing on the surface, and move people potentially to panic. The Lord spoke clearly while I was reading in Isaiah 7 about a situation that happened to Judah; it says in verse 2 that the people’s hearts shook like trees in the wind. God said to His prophet “Go out” and tell the nation “Do NOT FEAR or be faint-hearted at these smoking firebrands… in verse 7 the Lord declares their plans shall not stand, neither shall they come to pass! No matter what we see in the news (which is usually mostly not true anyway), or hear with our ears, listen to the voice of God instead! He is telling His people in this hour DO NOT FEAR! This is just smoke and mirrors!

If we stand strong in faith, listen to God and do what He says, nothing shall in anyway harm us! Stay the course sons and daughters of God! The prize of His manifest presence as He habitats with us in refreshing revival is just around the corner!

Get LOW!

prayer_raised_hands

Precious intercessors – in our area we have been on an exciting adventure in the Lord. He first gave us a prophetic promise of being catapulted into our destiny in Him, then the word “Launch” began to be spoken by prophetic folks around us. After that He gave me instruction to “prepare for the launch.” Now, the word “advance” has started to be released by prophetic intercessors. I believe these messages have been released by Holy Spirit to so that we understand we are in forward motion and not stopped as the enemy would have us believe. We are launched and we are advancing. From my times with the Lord I am convinced that very shortly we will be catapulted into the very things we have been dreaming, hoping, visioning, praying, and laboring for in intercession.

Nonetheless, there is danger. When God is on the move, we must listen for His voice and heed directives in order to complete our mission in Him. The dream I am about to share is something I believe we must glean from and heed its message. It came to me in the very early AM 6-12-14 as direction, loving warning and encouragement. I know that I am not myself in the dream. As a prophetic intercessor, I am representing all of the prophetic intercessors and advancing church.

Here is the dream with some explanation:
I was at a gathering of absolute brilliant light with tens of thousands of others ( I believe this represents the body of Christ). Out of the gathering came many wonderful God directed ideas, solutions, plans, healing, restoration etc. When the gathering ended, people each got into their vehicles, which represents their ministry, and headed out to accomplish the things received for the Lord’s glory. I stood watching and, though they all originally headed out going the direction the Lord showed them, not far down the road they took a wrong turn. One by one they got on a pathway that was headed for a cliff. I tried to run after them to warn them, but I could not help them that way. In the dream, I had to go to the base of the cliff and climb up to the place where they were about to go off the edge and lose everything. So, I went down to the base of the cliff and easily climbed up the mountain of problems. All went well until I got to the craggy opening in the cliff where they were all headed for destruction.

At the opening sat a huge being that I can only describe as looking like Jaba the Hut in the Star Wars movies, a foul ugly slug with a huge mouth. I just about got to the top of the craggy opening when it blocked my path. I tried every way to get around it. Nothing worked. I could see a couple of vehicles go off the cliff and crash at the bottom. I was devastated and desperate to get around this ugly being to help others avoid the cliff.

First, the beast was seductive and tried to lure me into its trap of snakelike ropes. Its face even changed to that of a pleasant smiling man. That made me very ill and I backed up. Thankfully, its plan did not work. I would not step forward into the trap. When it saw that I could not be drawn into its trap, it peppered me with things that hit me and hurt me deeply.  I kept trying to get past this beast anyway to help the others. When the pain didn’t work, it said I could not ever get past it because I was like it and could never move forward. Revulsion swept over me as this beast was so vile. How could I be like it? Then I realized it was Leviathan – it was PRIDE. That was why I was like it. I was dealing with pride. In the dream I immediately got low. When I was flattened, I was no longer like it. I easily slid under it and jumped up with great strength, zeal, power, joy, love etc on the other side. It could not stop me!

With a bright blue weapon that supernaturally appeared in my hand, that I believe was intense Intercessory Prayer, every disaster from that point on was diverted. The blue weapon hit the vehicles and they all either stopped or turned back to the path ordained for them. A person got out of their vehicle right on the edge and said to me “How did you do all this? It is amazing that no one got hurt.” I told them how I did it and we wept with joy thanking God for revealing the answer for this season.

So, dear friends and intercessors, after praying and meditating this this AM, the Lord has told me to post the dream for all of you. It is, He tells me, not only for me. We are all about to find ourselves in situations where our PRIDE is an issue. Either there will be an attempt to seduce us into thinking we are just fine the way we are, or we will be brutally assaulted by the enemy through people and situations we least expect. This is in order to block us and stop the advance of our ministry in Christ Jesus.

We must ask Him to deal with all of our areas of wounded pride from the past so we can receive healing. Then ask Him to teach us how to get LOW so we can handle all future challenging situations where our pride may rise up. I am asking Him to flatten us and keep us in a place of humility no matter how much our pride is being wounded or how much we want to take credit for His goodness. When we stay low, the enemy cannot stop us from advancing. In fact, in the dream it was like it could not even see me. In our flattening position the love of Jesus can flow in power.

Believe me, I am not an expert at this. I fail frequently but, I am learning that, when I feel blocked and/or hurt that most of the time, it is pride stopping me from advancing. The simple act of repenting, as much as needed, forgiving and letting go – telling God we cannot do anything with out HIM and His direction – relying on the Holy Spirit, will help us to successfully get past this evil guard. Since people will be used to deliver the “blows” and cause the problems, practice now so you will be responding in the future by immediately forgiving and blessing them as you would want to be blessed. In blessing there is the power of God’s love. Our temptation is to curse them, but that hurts them and us – it makes us weak and we end up defeated. Father God wants us victorious wielding our bright blue weapon of prayer supernaturally defeating the enemy’s plans.

Prepare with love as your breastplate – stay low fellow intercessors and advancing church, the victory is found flat on our face before God.

We will be praying that the advancing church enter into humility and stay LOW during our prayers.

Blessing you with with great JOY and strength! We are about to breakthrough with humility in to His glorious plans!

With love
Cheryl
