We Are On The Cusp Of Probably One Of The Greatest Days
Of The Dismantling Of Religious Behavior And Abuse 
In The Charismatic Church
And Evangelical Church To Date.
 
In the days ahead we’re going to see many people hungering for that sacred time in worship where there is a waiting upon the Lord, and in the honoring of his name. Clearly we attract the presence of the Lord when we are focused upon “The Presence”, and not upon the performance.
 
We shouldn’t be surprised if like Jesus, we collide with torrents of political & religious and cultural expectations. So, on a daily basis, our purity of vision to move toward the Kingdom will also cause us deep discomforts that will ask us to set aside our preferences, and our convenience.
 
This  pressing towards the kingdom will ask us to say things that we’d rather not say, to go places that we’d rather not go, to give away things that we’d rather keep.
 
And in this discomfort, each time we have an opportunity to cry out to God:  
“Where did you go? Why does pursuing your kingdom of abundance and peace not always feel like abundance andpeace?”
I’d like to offer these possibilities to ponder.
In every way,
He’s purifying your heart.
 
WHAT IS THIS OBSESSION  THAT IS BEGINNING TO DRIVE PEOPLE AWAY
FROM RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES AND STRUCTURAL PROGRAMMING?
 
Is it fatigue from fleshly efforts?
Is it weariness with well doing?
Or!
Is it the beginning of a matter?
 
A. W. Tozer once said,
"Self Is The Blurred Veil That Hides The Face Of God From Us.
It Can Be Removed Only In Spiritual Experience,  Never By Simple Instruction."
 
The Lord is allowing man to have the joy and shock of coming to the end of his means of prodding and producing until he falls into a heap at the feet of the One who has the key to the place of hope and rest!
He. The King of tranquility and Divine Purpose has the place of Sanctuary carved out in a definite place.
 
THE PLACE OF WORSHIP
"But the time is coming--it has, in fact, come--when what you're called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter."
"It's who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That's the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself--Spirit.
Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.” That is all from John: 23-24
 
APOSTOLIC ORIGINS BEGAN WITH THE DEVOTED AND YET WEARY DISCIPLES OF JESUS COMING TOGETHER IN A "PLACE" OF WAITING, RESTING AND WORSHIPING
Those waiting in an upper room.
Hiding from the world and its pressures and threats!
Waiting.
Worshiping.
REMEMBERING the past things they had experienced while walking with Jesus.
They were asking the heart questions of,
"Why are we here?
What are we waiting for?
What is this all about?"
 
My Brothers and Sisters, We are Again...
...In the same place.
 
WE ARE SIMPLY RESTING IN THE KNOWLEDGE 
THAT THE LORD HAS BROUGHT US
TO END OF THE OF THE PAST WAYS
AND FORMS OF MAN.
 
He is preparing the way of His Power with a place of personal introspection and heart searching until we see that we must be truthful in our worship of Him. We must come into agreement with His Spirit and the way that He desires to move among those who know Him and among those who do not.
Old things are passing away.
LOOK! He does a new thing!
New to us,
BUT Not To Him.
 
AS WE BECOME OBSESSED WITH THE IDEA OF NOTHING TO PERFORM,
nothing to take to task, nothing to self generate but only to "marinate" and saturate in, we see the promises He has made begin to be realized. We must bring a mind, which has been emptied of old prejudices, old traditional theology, human philosophy and false data.
A mind so fully humble and empty that the Lord can reveal to it great, bright depths of truth and beauty, and floods of spiritual understanding that we have never dreamed of before! (Amplified Bible)"Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.'-Jeremiah 33:3
 
The Author Francis Frangipane stated so powerfully , "We must bring hearts that are emptied of our abundant earthly attachments and sad, “holier-than-thou” sentimentalism, old friendships, old day intuitive loves.
We must bring empty hands that have handed over our own works, all planning strategies and “string pulling” for self.
Hands and hearts that hold onto no toys, and to no Treasure. Hands that bring no human demand or bargaining skills.
Hands so empty that they can grip firmly the Sword of the Spirit, the cross, or the tool that God may put into them."
 
God fills our nature and fills our lives in relationship to how they are emptied for Him. God knows our heart. He sees what we can’t see.
If we allow Him, He begins taking out all the impurities, emptying us of ourselves and filling us with Himself – so He can use us as a vessel of honor.
 
SO OFTEN AS OF LATE,
IN PLACES OF MEETING AND GATHERINGS OF HUNGRY SAINTS,
THE HOLY HUSH OF HEAVEN HAS FALLEN
WITH SUCH SWEETNESS AND SIMPLICITY.
 
All the fancy trappings of "noisy worship strategy" pale compared to this heavy rich perfumed presence that descends on those who will wait upon the Lord and grow stronger.
 
There is no need for airy or trendy teachings and thoughts. No need for the pious and well-oiled speeches implying the way to go. ( Because they say so!)
Blessed are those who are willing to release all that is not THE Kingdom in them, who let their hearts be purified, for they shall see God himself—God’s life being birthed in every challenge. God’s kingdom coming on Earth as it is in heaven.
As we wait.
Humble.
At His feet...
...He moves upon many within the Body to rise up and declare, to share, risk, expound and grow in the Grace of God, as well as in much Mercy.
 
You are right in the middle of God's process for you. You don't have to settle for God's second best because of somebody else's choices or your own. As you are being who you are in Him, you can do what you are supposed to do. You may have disappointments, but your life is His story with depth, adventure, suspense, surprising plot turns, and darkness that Jesus defeated. Be blessed as you understand more of His story that He is writing in your life.
 
1 Peter 1:5. "...Who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time."
 
God surrounds you with His favor as a shield. You are shielded by His power, so that in every dark thing you experience, you can live large and strong.
God put you on earth in your exact place for His specific purpose, and you are living in that purpose, even when you don't know it.
Your soul may be grumbling and resisting, but you are living the story that God is ready to reveal to you.
 
God is a lot bigger than you expect Him to be. He's a lot bigger than your circumstances. He is the God of detail. He is deeply involved in the small details of your life
 
HEAVEN LONGS TO KISS THE EARTH AGAIN.
The King of Heaven is descending with an unexplainable and definite wave of stillness.
It is His manifested Presence.
In His Presence. His Sanctuary.
Is fullness.
Completion.
Needs met...
...And Joy.
 
COME. LET US BE MAGNIFICENTLY WRAPPED UP IN HIM!
 "O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you;
My soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Thus I have seen you in the sanctuary, to see Your power and Your glory."
- Psalm 63:1-2
 
Let's pray from Ephesians 1.
I ask that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you may know him better. 
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion. And every name that is invoked not only in the present age, but also in the one to come. In the power of that name we pray. Amen. 
 
NOW I ENCOURAGE YOU NOT TO BE AFRAID
WHEN THE EARTH IS SHAKING
AND STRANGE AND ODD THINGS ARE TAKING PLACE!
 
Unterstand, God is not weak.
He is not deaf.
He is not asleep.
But, he does have an extended power in mercy because he knows that when his justice and judgment is kindled and he moves, it is sovereignty complete and there is no turning back.
This is a time for us to do personal examination, and yeah, there’s a lot of stuff being shaken.
 
A lot of people have been warned, a lot of ministries have still chosen to hide things that are going to come out, because they chose not to go the way of accountability and repentance, and the Lord has to let it come to pass. He doesn’t want his sheep deceived, and he certainly doesn’t want them abused, but it’s also happening in individual lives.
 
If we’re looking to the church and if we’re looking to leaders to be our ultimate guide, then the Lord will allow us to have great disappointment and failures there.
 
EACH OF US IS TO COME BEFORE THE FATHER!
Jesus said how to pray, he taught us! He said to say, “My Father, you are in heaven, holy, holy is your name! Let your kingdom come, let your will be done, (which means in our lives and in others lives) like it is in heaven, and give us today our daily bread.
You see, we look forward to everything we want now down the road instead of accepting that today is enough, it’s sufficient.
So I encourage you to get still, get quiet.
Listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit.
It says in the word whether you turn to the left or to the right there is a voice behind you saying this is the way, walk in it. (Isaiah 30:21)
 It may not be pleasant, may not be popular, and it certainly may not be comfortable, but it is safe and it will keep you in a place where you are determined and at peace to serve the Lord.
 
REMEMBER, DON’T BE AFRAID.
Don’t listen to the frightening narratives, don’t give into the sounds around you telling you to be afraid because that’s the goal of the enemy.
 
Satan comes to bring fear and steal and rob your peace and destroy your trust in the Lord, and Jesus said,  "I AM come! I am! I have come that you might have life, and have it to the fullest!' That’s John 10:10.  And what that means is “might have life to the fullest”.
 
We have to choose to not listen to the world’s narratives, and trust me some of them sound really great! There are some great analytics out there, brillant minds. Brilliant voices, but if they don’t have the God breath, breathed on them, and they are not hearing from God accurately and it is nothing more than just a bunch of propaganda, or people trying to sell stuff, you’re going to get sucked into looking for answers and places that will come up empty.
 
The voice of God is big, but sometimes it’s very still and he wants us to discipline ourselves to get away from our phones get away from all the stuff, and simply bask and wait…
… Until he speaks.
 
I bless you today, and I look forward to our next podcast together. Goodbye for now.

by Mary Lindow
DO YOU FEEL AS IF THINGS ARE UTTERLY HOPELESS 
AND COMPLETELY UPSIDE DOWN RIGHT NOW?
 
Maybe you have you been in that scary place before.
Most people, if they are being transparent and honest will admit to times of experiencing hopelessness and feeling alone and afraid.
Friend.
You aren’t without hope,
You aren’t hopeless,
But you ARE helpless!
 
God Has Allowed This Time And Position Of Helplessness
And Complete Dependency On Him,
And You Are Helpless To Help Yourself.
 
We struggle to gain back some measure of control over our lives when this pressure is upon us, but our personal pride (that we didn’t even know that we had) is being crushed, and the only thing for us to do is to surrender!
 
NOW YOU MAY FEEL HOPELESS, BUT REALLY… 
…IT’S THE CONDITION OF HELPLESSNESS
THAT IS CAUSING YOU PAIN.
 
God Wants You Completely Dependent On Him, and He will keep you a “prisoner of hope” until you are.
 
OH HOW WEARY YOU ARE OF THE AWFUL REFINER’S FLAME AND THAT SEEMINGLY ENDLESS TWEAKING OF YOUR ATTITUDE!
“Okay, God, you can stop now!" you scream.
But He doesn't stop.
You're caught in a prison of hope and He will not let you out until He is finished with what He began in you.
 
There are times during the process of pursuing heartfelt dreams and callings in life that you might feel that your "hope" seems to have been locked up in a prison. You can't seem to make your dreams come true, and yet, you find it impossible to stop believing in them!
 
YOU CAN'T GO FORWARD ANY FASTER THAN GOD WILL LET YOU,
and yet, you sure don't want to return to where you once were before you were overshadowed and given a "life vision" with a promise from God!
 
GOD JUST WILL NOT LET YOU GIVE UP!
During this time you might feel like saying,
"Okay God, this is enough! I don't want to hope anymore!
 I am tired of being like an egg in an incubator with this promise! 
I want out of this prison of hope!"
 
IT'S DURING THIS TIME THAT YOUR DREAMS FEEL SO VERY REAL TO YOU, YET TO OTHERS THEY DON'T!
There is a big conflict between what you discern in the Spirit and what appears to be moving so slowly in the natural, and that grates at our souls!
We feel like we are on a Ferris wheel. You have your “up times” when you can see your dream's fulfillment far into the future, but you also have your “down times” when you can't see anything and everything seems to have crashed into a messy heap.
 
YOU THINK TO YOURSELF,
“AM I CRAZY TO THINK THAT GOD COULD USE ME? NOW?
IN THIS TIME?"
 
The enemy comes in like a rushing flood and you begin to doubt, causing anguish to your soul.
  
THIS IS THE TIME WHEN GOD IS DOING HIS GREATEST WORK IN YOU!
This is when the refining process REALLY hurts, because He is getting down to the very core of your soul, to the deep regions of your heart.
 
HE IS DEVELOPING THINGS IN YOU
THAT YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT YOU LACKED.
THINGS THAT YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT YOU NEEDED.
 
You think, "Okey Dokey God, this is deep enough!"
But, every builder knows you must dig down deep to lay a proper foundation first, before you start to build upward. And the greater the height of the structure, the deeper the foundation must be.
 
YOUR FORTRESS OR PLACE OF REFUGE IS TRUSTING IN A LOVING GOD.
Trusting Him in spite of all the reasoning of your mind, in spite of the circumstances that surround you.
 
YOU WERE CONTENT TO GIVE GOD CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE UNTIL HE DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR LIFE, YOU DIDN’T LIKE.
You were happy to surrender all to Him, until He decided to give your promotion to someone else.
You believe in His sovereignty, until His sovereign will conflicts with, your will.
Then you are sure He has made a mistake!
You want to run from Him, but He is your refuge.
How do you run from your refuge?
How do you run from the only one who really loves you or understands you?
The answer is . . . you don't.
 
SO, RETURN, MY FRIEND, TO YOUR FORTRESS, AND REMAIN A PRISONER UNTIL HE IS DONE WITH YOU - UNTIL HE DECIDES THAT YOU ARE READY FOR ALL THAT HE HAS FOR YOU.
“Return to your fortress! Yes!
You prisoners who have hope!
Today I declare that I will return double what has been taken from you."
- Zechariah 9:12
 
PROPHETIC WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
The Spirit of God says,
“Even now I announce to you that not only will I restore to you all that has been taken from you, but I will give you double for all the trouble you have endured."
He says, "Don't stop now . . .
…Keep trusting me, because I can see your future and it is very blessed.
Keep walking with me,
 and keep trusting in me
 and I will give you rest."
“Come to me all who are weary and burdened,
And I WILL, give you rest." -Matthew 11:28

Friday Feb 09, 2024


By Mary Lindow
This  podcast is going to be directed towards the question that many people are asking, (and of course a lot of times believers don’t “ask the question” because they fear that they are going to be judged for asking such a question!) 
But if we don’t ask, we don’t get answers, and so today’s podcast is addressing “What is the Holy Spirit doing during this season”.
 
I have spent time praying and seeking the Lord well for a good month now  and it’s been an interesting time since the last time we were together, and of course, the assignments God puts or put us into, IN different season of life, they never come without challenges and also without redemptive opportunities! And so, that’s what I’m going to be addressing! 
 
I’ve heard from the Spirit of God about what I’m to share. 
I am cautious about giving a word for a specific year because it begins to be kind of a measuring stick for some people to then either compete with or, that’s all they go by. “What the Lord said for 2024, 2023”, whatever, and they don’t listen for themselves, because sometimes it’s not about the year, it’s about the season, and a season can be more than one year! It can be more than a week, it can be a month or two!
 
Wherever we are in the Presence of God in our lives, walking with Jesus, we are in a season, and that season that we’re in right now is a very different time.  That’s where we’re heading today and I encourage you to share this word with those who are crying out to God for answers.
 
The things that are coming up in this next time and in life for all of us, 
They’re going to be challenging! 
 
In order to have the times of refreshing we are crying out for and, 
Are desperate for as believers,
We must learn to rule and reign with grace.
 
Refreshing rains will not fall, and cannot fall in full glory, when we refuse to lay down judgments, manipulations, and self invented “spiritual rules” that do not run parallel with the King of grace who is the ULTIMATE Mercy bringer in this present season. The conviction of God will be strong to cleanse the heart of falsity, the  fear of man and the passivity of half repentance for works of the flesh. 
 
We can get all the people that we know around the globe to pray for us and to pray over us, but we cannot force out the devil and the darkness of our own unforgiveness and intentional blame-shifting. 
 
We give the enemy consistent access to our churches and our lives as long as we “lord it over others”, hiding our own sin, pretending that God does not see.
 
To operate or flow in Mercy means to perform out of a desire to relieve suffering, and is motivated by compassion. The action of forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within   one's power to punish or harm. Mercy shown, prevents something unpleasant or provides relief from suffering.
 
IN THIS SEASON, 
THE SPIRIT OF GOD DESIRES EVERY BELIEVER 
TO DO THEMSELVES AN ETERNAL FAVOR. 
 
TELL THE TRUTH.
 
God will protect you more for doing this than any self-invented cover-up ever could. And, you just might regain relationships with those you have used as stepping-stones to your own deviant self-empowerment.
 
THE HEAVENLY KING OF GLORY  
IS ALWAYS AND FOREVER CREATING NEWNESS OF LIFE!
 
If we are indeed man or a woman of prayer, the test will come of that deep prayer life when your enemies surround you, accuse you, and often attempt to execute and silence you. 
 
Some will manifest in this next year as false friends who use and abuse your friendships and contacts, in order to gain access to notoriety and power over all of the things you are supposed be preparing for yourself. 
 
They will exhaust and weaken you until you once and for all put upon the altar of surrender, any need for someone else to carry you or promote you.  
 
A man or a woman of prayer in these days, right now, will learn to sweep out iniquity, falseness, slander, and “hierarchical pecking orders” through goodness and humility.
 
This is a time to trust, to depend upon, to lean upon, the goodness of the Lord. 
This is a time to trust in His sovereignty more than ever before.
It is His right to define what grace is. 
It is not man’s right. 
 
Prophetic Exhortation 
“And so says the Lord, the Spirit of Grace,
the Voice of Wisdom, and the only Almighty One. 
As you cry out for times of refreshing, for a change in the hearts of men, for a move of my Spirit across the lands of Earth, my command to you is that you begin to create an atmosphere where I may speak My plans, according to My Word and according to My prerogatives.
 
I will lead you and guide you with enough light each day, as you come to that narrow place with me. 
 
I will strengthen your weakened emotions and spiritual discernment as you dialogue in honesty with me. 
 
Some of you must quickly repent of foolish choices and foolish actions that have caused many to be shattered and shamed because you spoke out of a title or calling, rather than out of following my voice.
 
Begin to dig wells in prayer. 
Become entrenched and immersed in it, never ceasing. 
Prepare places where my rain may fall and cause a fresh drinking place for those yet to taste of my goodness, as well as for those who are thirsty within my Body.
 
Begin to dig wells in prayer in dry places, with humility and goodness. 
Lean upon me, trust in me, do not lean upon your own understanding, for you have well seen that having done this in the past you have missed many opportunities to prepare a way of salvation for others.
“I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.” (Isaiah 48:10)
 
So comfort yourself, weary and tried believer with this thought. Does not the word come like a soft shower, quieting the fury of the flame? Is it not a fireproof armor against the heat, which will then have no power? 
 
Whatever happens to you in this valley of weeping, know that I have chosen it for you.
If you still require an even greater comfort, remember that you have the Son of man with you in the valley, in that “secret place” with you.  There He sits by your side, One whom you have not seen but whom you love and whether you know it or not, this is the true friend who sticks closely by you.
I will never leave one whom I have chosen as my own.
 
Great grace. Great mercy. Great promise. 
All these are yours, extended from my hand, and for you to extend, from your hand. 
 
NOW IS THE SEASON…
…To live out the heart and life of the servant as I lead you with the little light that you have at this time. It is all you need as long as it comes from me. 
It is a time to learn to march forward, to dig wells, to prepare, so that others may also drink freely with no restraints.
When I come and speak to you and move among you, I express everything that is pure and lovely and has a good report and sin and uncleanliness depart.
Peace also rains when I move with humble power. Gentleness will be the result of my transforming power. 
Harmlessness will follow, for hearts that are touched by me are never exhibiting any feelings of superiority, self-assertiveness, or showiness.
My grace is sufficient for you, and you will find it if you will seek it, and above all if you will express it!
“Be strong in the grace that is in me.” (2 Timothy 2:1)
As a reservoir empties itself into pipes, so have I emptied out my grace for my people in this Next Wave of My Heart. 
From my fullness you have received “Grace for Grace”. Grace is always available from me, without price.
“Keep yourselves then, from overconfident, arrogant sins.” (Psalm 19:13) 
You will certainly stumble if you look away from the One who is able to keep you from falling. 
 
Be very cautious about pushing yourself into the forefront of public gatherings and among the more visible. If you are to be used in higher visibility, let it be Me who promotes you there. 
Some who drive themselves to the forefront will also have greater scrutiny and unfortunate exposure of hidden agendas and unholy transactions in this season, and sadly will be brought low again because of their self presumption of importance. 
 
If your love is fervent, your faith constant, and your hope bright, continue 
nonetheless to be on your guard and cry out, “Keep us from temptation!”
 
The seasons revolve according to my Divine appointment and man cannot change their schedule. 
In the spiritual as in the natural realm, man’s power is limited.
I alone can remove the winter of spiritual death from an individual or from a church.
Let me hear you say, “Not my will, but as you will oh Lord!” 
As you yield to me my people, I will yield in return and bring the sweetness of my Holy Presence into your very homes, your gatherings, whether modest or larger numbers are attending. 
I look for honest, wisdom-filled, and humble people to move among and to move through.  
 
Let it be, as I desire! 
As I will!  
Allow me to determine what is the best for you. 
Be content to leave your prayer and your petitions in my hands.
I know when to give, how to give, what to give, and what to withhold.
 
As you visit me in the secret place of repentance and brokenness, as the path becomes narrower, seeking me earnestly and often times pleading with humility and resignation, you shall surely prevail!
I am the light on your pathway. And, I AM all you need.” 
 
This Was A Strong Word From The Lord! 
I encourage you to listen to it and read it and meditate over it, several times, allowing the Holy Spirit to do a deeper work in your heart. 
When the Spirit of God speaks to us about a Season that we are in, or about things that are to come, we need to cleanse our hearts from being impatient, and allow Him to do that work that gets down deep inside and pushes out anything that we are running from, or, He begins to deal with the things that we have been asking questions about, and now he’s bringing the answers. 
I bless you today and encourage you to dedicate yourselves to rich and set apart time in prayer and fellowship with the King of heaven. 
I encourage you to dig wells in prayer. 
It’s not glamorous! 
But, I can tell you this we’ve been having prayer gatherings every Thursday evening now for well over two years now, actually, three now, and I can tell you that there have been nights where it seems like two hours went by and it felt like 15 minutes.
The presence of the Holy Spirit is so sweet and thick, and you know the scripture talks about “the weight of his glory” (2 Corinthians 16-18) there is a presence of weight, a thickness of the presence of God, a rich atmosphere.  
We have seen the impossible take place in prayer!  We have seen lives changed,  we have seen court cases reversed, we have seen sick bodies be recovered and restored and miracles take place in families. 
We are grateful to the Lord that when we come together in his name, he is there with us, and that scripture that says whenever two or more gather in  my name there I am in the midst of them, (Matthew 18:20), that can correspond with the scripture verse that talks about a threefold cord is not easily broken (Ecclesiastes 4:12), and that’s like three strands of a braid. 
 
When we are braided together, that’s a strong bond with the Lord and He is like a cord that’s bound to us whenever we gather and it’s not easily broken and cannot be broken by any other force,
We live in the presence of a Sovereign, Mighty Force, 
and that is the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Monday Dec 11, 2023


By Mary Lindow
I had just worked four days and had put in 46 hours on my feet. I was tired. I had spoken life and ministered to many people in my position as an office manager and chiropractic assistant to a wonderful Doctor that loves people and loves God. But nonetheless, I was tired.
 
I had been asked to come and minister at a women’s gathering on my day off, which would be Friday evening. I rested part of the day, did laundry the rest of the day and spoke to the Lord and prepared what he was giving me for the evening ministry meeting.
 
As I Got In The Car, I Noticed That My Indicators Were Telling Me There Was Something Wrong With The Car. Engine light flashing, cruise button not working and I had no time to spare to get to the meeting on time. So, I simply prayed, put my pedal to the metal and prayed all the way there.
 
When I Arrived, The Room Was Filled With Tired, Weary Women, Who Had Also Been Working Hard. Many of them, single mothers, many of them were parents who had taken on the adoption of their children’s children, because their own children had gone wild and embraced a lifestyle of drugs and freedom. They were pouring everything they had into these grandchildren, yet they still came. Many in the room we’re still seeking employment because they had lost previous jobs due to economic down change. And there, sitting in the church were young pregnant mothers.
 
Also, in the room were teenage high school girls and there I was, sent in my fatigue, to speak to them about the hope of Christ. I can tell you, I am so grateful for time in the word and time in prayer that anchors us and shows us the purpose beyond our own, as to why God sends us into different places.
 
I Was Honest, I Was Raw, And I Was Right In Front Of Them As One Of Them. As I began to talk about what it means to be in the presence of God, to really know him and his presence, and that it is there for us to draw from, to drink from, in order to survive this cruel world, something in the room began to change.
 
We are all aware of when the presence of God comes into a meeting and we call it the glory of God, Or We Call It The “Shekinah Glory”, Or The Holy Presence Of The Lord, And All Of This Is Very True! But in this meeting there was such a kindness and such tenderness towards this room of women who showed up on a Friday night after a long workweek, just to come in hope that they could touch the hem of his garment.
 
There were people in that group from about 11 years old all the way up to I would say late 70s. But every single one of them were women created in the fashion that God wanted them to be made in. Each of them still has dreams alive inside of them, even if their bodies are aging and are beginning to slow down a bit. There’s a fire inside of them that God wants to keep lit so that he may use them to the fullest.
 
But How Do You Address Those Situations With Multiple Generations? You talk to them about how much God loves them. You tell them about the hope that Jesus brings and then you get honest and tell them where you are!
 
When You Don’t Put Yourself On A Pedestal or lift up the icon of “your great knowledge of the Lord”, but instead, you get in the boat with them, they suddenly feel that they can receive from something or someone who “gets where they are at”.
 
I told stories of when I was a young girl, and first came to know the Lord and I had the young girls laughing, and it was so wonderful! But the Lord gave me their attention then.
 
I began to talk about raising children and how frightening it can be in a world where the narratives are screaming to influence our children’s minds, and I cheered the mothers on who are willing to do the hard things of homeschooling or be on top of the things their children are learning at school and to be vocal.
 
I talked about what it means to have pain in a family and to see children suffer, to see orphaned and adopted children come into your home, and you love, and care and nurture them as your very own.
 
And, I talked about when our bodies begin to change and grow a bit weaker and a bit older, the things we must do to remain strong in the Lord and yet what we can do with what we have, and how we can walk the floors in prayer, how we can be in the church building and pray for those who need to know Christ, and if we can’t walk, we can ride in our car and drive around and pray for our neighborhoods.
 
You See The Nurturing Quality Of God Is Real!
It is the Holy Spirit in a mothering form, but it also has to come across with direction.
 
People Are Looking For Direction Today.
They need to see a course set out before them that has light and hope, and the wonderful woman of God, Deborah in the scriptures, had a journey, and a story to tell that in fact, turned her nation around because she chose to work and do the hard things in her community, where God began to then build a rapport with those who would even go to war and lead the armies.
 
God Is Raising Up Many Deborahs In This Hour. Many who have been silent and quiet. Maybe it’s your wife, maybe it’s your daughter, and maybe it’s your grandmother.
 
But right now there are women who see on the horizon, the great and dark, gloomy agendas of the world. And Friends, when you have a mother’s, fighting spirit and you have experience, there is nothing you will not do to stand up and protect your family and to go to war in the kingdom of God.
 
“God's eyes are searching to and fro over the earth looking for a heart that is fully His.”  -2 Chronicles 16:9
 
What caught His eye when He came to Deborah?
Was it the uncompromising fire of holiness, an unwavering faith or an unrelenting love that set her apart? Was it something about the integrity of her character, the depth and integrity of her wisdom and the richness of her kindness, which produced confidence in both men and women? 
 
THE LORD IS SO JEALOUS
FOR EACH ONE OF US
TO LOVE HIM AND KNOW HIM!
 
When We Start To Move Away From Him, He Allows Evil Kings To Oppress Us. The Word tells us that God is the one who appoints evil kings and magistrates, but He also rises up the godly judges and kings!
 
Deborah was the fourth judge and for the first 20 years of her 40-year reign, the nation was oppressed by one of history's most powerful and cruel Canaanite Kings, Jabin, and his sneaky military commander, Sisera. (Judges 4:1-4)
 
Deborah Captured The Heart Of God!
What is amazing is that the Lord raised up a woman to deliver a nation! What is especially surprising is that it happened in the Middle East thousands of years ago! Deborah was not only a wife, mother, intercessor, psalmist and prophetess but also a judge and a national deliverer. That’s not a bad resume for a middle-aged woman living in that oppressive Middle Eastern culture!
 
Against Great Odds, God Used Her Powerfully.
Deborah broke outside of her culture but she wasn't in rebellion, she was in obedience -- to her God. She was used radically and set her people free, and the people loved her. It's a wonderful story of faith in God, and it champions men and women partnering together in a war to save their nation from great oppression.
When we read about this revolutionary prophetess and judge, it expands our religious studies of women being allowed to lead governmentally. But I really feel that God is raising up a troupe of end-time Deborahs.
 
THERE IS GREAT GLOBAL SHAKING
THAT HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN,
AND THE LORD IS CALLING NOT ONLY
THE MEN, BUT ALSO THE WOMEN OF GOD!
 
The Lord is saying,
“ARISE! SHINE Deborahs!
Be a part of the army of the Lord!”
 
There Are Two Root Words For Consecrate In Hebrew: never (separating from) and cades (separating unto).
Deborah, Like The Other Defenders Of The Faith, Was Separated From The World And Unto God. She did nothing on her own but spoke just what the Father taught her.
This is where the true victory lies,
in listening to Him.
 
Deborah's Work History
We tend to think of multi-tasking as a 21st century sensation, but Deborah was functioning in five major roles. Many scholars believe that one of Deborah's roles before becoming judge was being a lamp lighter in the temple.
 
In The Bible, Oil Is Often A Symbol For The Holy Spirit. Deborah was married to Lapidoth, whose name means, shine, lamp, flame, burning lamp, lightening, and torch. Isn't it interesting? He, too, was a lamp that had oil!
 
Deborah Was A Keeper Of The Oil And Light, Carefully Tending The Lamps. This shows us that she was a woman who was passionately spending long hours dwelling in the temple.
She was a woman of prayer and of worship. She lived between two villages, Ramah and Bethel, in Ephraim, which means the valley of fruitfulness.
 
Biblical Names Often Have Profound Prophetic Meanings. The ancient village of Ramah was known to be the seat of high adultery.
Bethel was known as the house of the Lord with open heavens, where Jacob had his ladder experience in Genesis 28.
 
Deborah stood in the gap interceding between the seat of high idolatry and pagan worship and the house of Bethel with its open heavens.
Now The Picture Becomes A Little Clearer As“ Deborah Was Raised Up By God To Intercede Against Idolatry (Ramah). She wanted to turn the hearts of the children of Israel back to the house of God (Bethel) to inherit a double portion of fruit (Ephraim).
 
Deborah's Relationship With The Lord Was Very Precious And Intimate.
I believe that in those twenty years of captivity, Deborah stood in the gap and interceded to change the course of Israel. God promised Abraham, in Genesis 18, that He would save a nation for the sake of ten righteous men. I believe that the righteous prayers of Deborah availed much!
 
She Worshipped And Had A Deep Intercessory Life With God. She would go into the temple and fill the lamps with oil and ask God for revelation for people around her in great darkness.
 
She was prepared in this secret place as she stood in the gap in desperate intercession for her people and her nation. She would hear from God and would bring down great wisdom and counsel.
 
She Spent Long Hours In The Temple.
This dedication moved the very heart of God and changed the very heart of Deborah.
He led, she followed.
She led, Israel followed.
 
Oftentimes we have the misunderstanding that worship is merely the thirty-minute time slot before the sermon, when we sing songs of devotion to God. This is part of worship.
 
But Doing Small Things With Great Love Unto Him Is Living A Life Of Worship. Deborah was a worshipper who loved the oil of the lamps, the Holy Spirit.
 
We Need To Be Like Deborah, Men And Women Of Prayer. Sincere and passionate prayer is the key to unlock our relationship with Almighty God.
 
Many struggle with praying because they feel that their intercession is not much more than empty cries to an invisible God who seems so distant. We often think that our prayers bounce off the ceiling and back to us unheard and unanswered.
 
But Beloved! God Loves Conversing With You!
He promises that He will hear you and answer!
 
IT TAKES ONLY A FEW SECONDS OF
A FACE-TO-FACE ENCOUNTER WITH GOD,
TO CHANGE THE COURSE OF HUMAN HISTORY
FOR YOU, YOUR CITY, OR YOUR NATION.
 
In Fact, Connecting With God Is The Highest Purpose For Which You Were Created!
This is eternal life to know me! (John 17:3)
 
Our Hunger For God Is What Fuels Our Prayer Life. When His presence is our passion and our hunger is for His heart, we can approach the throne of God boldly with the confidence that our Papa loves our prayers, but having this first love is so important. 
 
For Deborah, intercession was an exchange of ideas in which God began to download strategic battle plans, blue prints from heaven, and keys to open doors that no man can shut, and shut doors that no man can open. Isa. 22:22 How else could she have so wisely judged so many civil cases with the Israelites?
 
The journey of Deborah is a declaration
of the power of just ONE life…
…Fully set apart for God.
 
Deborah Stood As A Prophetic Representation,
a suggestion that as a woman who may have been weaker in her physical attributes, she had the word of God! She had a history of going in and lighting the lamps.
 
She Had A History Of Hearing The Voice Of God In The Secret Place. So swiftly, when the hour came for her tangibly to go into war, she was ready. She was in the place to say yes because she knew the voice of her God.
 
What Is The Reason Why God Was Attracted To The Life Of Deborah? Prophetess Deborah functioned in the divine dimension of a spirit of wisdom and revelation. It was almost as if God had supernaturally, placed a divine compass in her, always guiding her to Him. The judging that Deborah did so well might have been because of her gift as a prophetess.
 
She would have been able to make wise decisions if she saw well in the Spirit. She was humble, willing and wise.
 
In Matthew Henry's Commentary, he writes:
“She was a woman of illuminations, or of splendors, one extraordinarily known and wise, and so came to be eminent and illustrious. She was intimately acquainted with God, she was a prophetess, and one that instructed others in divine knowledge by the inspiration of the Spirit of God, and had gifts of wisdom, to which she attained not in an ordinary way; she heard words of God, and she probably saw visions of the Almighty. She was totally devoted to Israel. After Jehovah, Israel was she first love.”
 
Deborah Was One Who Received Fresh Instructions From Heaven,and though she knew how evil the oppression of King Jabin was, she also knew that with God anything is possible! Something in Deborah knew how to pull on the sources of heaven, standing in the guidance of the Lord (Jer. 23) and open her mouth and let Him fill it (Psa. 81:10).
 
She Was A Mother Of Israel.
What made this woman a mother of Israel?  Deborah loved well.
Imagine facing the unending line of people all needing a touch of heaven. Imagine her tired eyes looking out on the faces of His design as she felt the ache in their hearts for God. They had come so far, how could they leave empty handed? The eleven other scattered tribes of Israel walked for miles and risked their lives on the dangerous highways as they struggled through to hear from God, through Deborah's voice. 
 
In Judges 5:6-8, listen to what she says.
“The highways were deserted, and the travelers walked along the byways. Village life ceased, it ceased in Israel, until I, Deborah, arose, Arose a mother in Israel. They chose new gods; then there was war in the gates.”
I believe that Deborah could hear the groans of the Israelites who were oppressed for 20 years and feel the throbbing pain in God's heart over His people's sin and oppression.
 
I Believe That It Was Her Ability To Hear His Heartbeat That Allowed Her To Save A Nation In A Day. Deborah ruled with the sword of a prophet but the staff of a shepherd -- she truly loved God's people.
She always led well. She led by loving.
 
Military Policymaker Deborah Was More Than A Judge; She Was Used To Deliver Israel From The Second Longest Captivity. As a prophetess and military strategist, she called the nation to war. She not only brandished the hand of God but also operated with the heart of God. You see, Deborah was a deliverer!
She Loved The People And They Loved Her.
She Delivered Them From A Great Enemy.
 
The Lord literally issued a clear prophetic word to summon Barak, the Israeli commander, to rally the troops for battle against impossible odds.
Why? Because the Hebrews had no weapons -- none. They had all been taken away by the Canaanites.
 
God Showed Deborah The Secrets Of How To Win The Battle. She brought a holy “about-face” to the wicked plans of Israel. When the city gates were at war, Deborah, a mother of Israel who was willing to lay down her life for her God and county, arose.
 
Why We Need Deborahs To Arise And Shine Today
There is a cry going out
from the hearts of God’s people
about the oppression the church is under
 from the enemy.
 
Heaven Is Aware Of The Issues Affecting The People Of God. But, until a cry goes out from the people of God, the hands of Heaven are tied.
 
Without A Cry, We Show We Are Satisfied Or Comfortable With The Way Things Are. The harassment had been going on for well over 20 years. How long do we put up with things before we cry out for change? 
 
GOD HAS BEEN WATCHING AND STIRRING UP DEBORAHS
FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW
AND THE TIMING IS RIGHT.
 
When We Get To The Place
To Where Revival Itself Isn’t Enough,
But We Must See Change Take Place,
We Know We Are On The Verge
Of Something Great.
 
We Have Got To Get To The Place
That We Don’t Just Want Change,
But We Are Willing To Rise Up
And Put Our Hands To The Plow,
To See Change Occur.
 
Actions truly do speak louder than words.
 
Deborah Represents The Steadiness And Dependability Necessary To Both Win And Keep Victory. Barak means “lightning flash”. That is temporary.
We don’t need a temporary fix or a temporary anointing. If a temporary, quick fix was enough; we would be in a great position by now! We didn’t get to where we are at quickly, and the victory must be won with reliability and dedication.
 
When Deborah Arose, The Warriors Returned. There is a group of God’s warriors who are waiting for someone to rise up and lead them back to the place and position for which they have been created.
God bestowed peace and victory for 40 years. The time of victory was twice as long as the time of oppression. The sad part is that after the 40 years, the Israelites went back to their wicked ways and found themselves in a place of oppression again.
 
Let Us Be Men And Woman Who Will Stand In The Breach
And Go Before God And Cry Out In Intercession These Very Words,
 
“Lord, we need restoration!
Lord, we need the Kingdom of God to
break in with the resurrection power of life!”
 
This Is A Call To Combat!
This is a call for you to say that you want to hear the voice of God…
… From the secret place.
“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom
that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful,
and so worship God acceptably,
with reverence and awe.”
-Hebrews 12:28

It’s not just “my opinion” that playing close to the edge of occult involvement is a trap and a lure.
It’s my very deep conviction after having a full on and horrifying experience when we were young and first married.
Steve and I had watched a James Bond 007 show earlier that evening called "Live and Let Die", with a lot of “harmless” voodoo, (incantations and curses being put on people) and "fun" spies disturbing graves, and dark evil spirits attacking them.
While we were watching, I had a very quiet but persistent warning inside my heart to “stop watching the show”.
I blew it off saying to myself that, “I could handle it…
 It was just a show… harmless entertainment.”
After we had gone to bed and had fallen asleep, I was awakened by a loud crashing sound outside of our bedroom door, which was our living room. I turned my head to look in that direction and standing in the door frame was a hunched over, very tall, long haired, naked from waist up, long armed, pig snouted with a brass ring pierced through it, hairy being.
I thought I was maybe dreaming so I shook my head and rubbed my eyes to see if I was just coming out of a bad dream. Nope.
The dark being was still there.
My body was paralyzed in fear and I could not move to wake Steve.
I spoke to the hideous creature and told it to leave in the mighty and powerful name of Jesus Christ.
It just laughed at me and began to move into the room and alongside the bed, heading towards me. I said the same words again and it laughed, saying, "YOU invited me into your home tonight! I have every right to be here!"
I immediately knew that I had rejected the warning of The Holy Spirit to not watch the show. I was crying in terror and said, “Jesus… Please forgive me for ignoring your warning! I repent and apologize for blowing you off!”
At that point, the demonic thing stopped at the foot of the bed and was very agitated. I was no longer paralyzed with fear and then spoke to it again, telling it that I was forgiven by Jesus and that in HIS NAME, the evil being had to leave our home.
It still stood there frustrated and I told it again that the power of Christ and His poured out blood on the cross for my sins cried out against this attack and that it must leave. It started to whimper and walked towards the wall and then, walked right through it, and left.
Immediately, Steve woke up and asked what was the crashing sound! I told him everything that happened. He got up and went out to the living room. On the floor was a weather station type of decoration that we had firmly screwed into our wall. It had “somehow” ripped itself off the wall, jumped 8 inches and onto our record player, (yes…. we had vinyls!) sending the needle across the worship record we played often every day.
Both Steve And I Knew At That Point
That We Could Never Again Justify Or Blow Off
The Warning From The Father About
Our Entertainment Choices.
 
We were called to be worshippers and to not ever allow a strongman from hell into our home.
Here Are Some Reasons The Scriptures Warn Against
Engaging In Any Form Of The Occult:
➡ We are opening ourselves up to spirits other than God’s.
➡ We are not looking to God for guidance, but to the occult.
➡ We are turning away from true faith in Jesus.
➡ We are disobeying God’s word, the Bible.
 
The Israelites often made the same mistake and turned from God, although God clearly warned them about this.
“When you enter the land The LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or who consults the dead. 

Anyone who does these things is detestable to The LORD, and because of these detestable practices The LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before The LORD your God. 

 
The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, The LORD your God has not permitted you to do so,” Deuteronomy 18:9-14.
 
Saul, Israel’s first king, started out well. He expelled mediums and spiritualists from the land, then violated God’s word and his own conscience by consulting a medium (1 Samuel 28:3-25). His end was tragic (1 Samuel 31:1-6).
 
New Testament Christians turned from sorcery. We really need to let their example serve as an inspiration and a warning.
“Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed their evil deeds. A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas. In this way the word of The LORD spread widely and grew in power.” Acts 19:18-20.
 
These verses are given to us as warnings.
God wants us to learn from the examples he gives in the Bible, and to avoid making the same mistakes. He loves us and wants us to turn from anything that will get between us and the safe spiritual life that he offers.
Bible verses warning about mediums and spiritualists:
“Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritualists, for you will be defiled by them. I AM The LORD your God,” Leviticus 19:31.
“I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritualists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people,” Leviticus 20:6.
“When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritualists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?” Isaiah 8:19.
 
So these are the things, these are the scriptures that the Lord has given us, the warnings are there, and also the consequences! I can tell you that ever since then, I have been fully aware of when there’s something on television or when people want to watch a movie or, there’s people beginning to talk on a New Age level of intellectualism. Or, they talk about some of the things they’re partaking in for “medical practices”, or, different kinds of exercise programs, my first thought is, “If it has to have something to do with the occult or if it has to have something to do with “freeing your mind” so that you can relax and so your body is at peace”.
These are the lures that the enemy uses to draw us into other gods, and some Christian individuals actually say, “Oh, we’re not worshiping the god, we’re just doing things with the name of the Lord on it.”
The Lord doesn’t put his name on anything occult, and he never will, because he is The Sovereign, Ultimate Strength, THE  Sovereign Ultimate King, and he is The Voice that speaks to his people.
The word talks about those that know the voice of the Lord, the sheep, they know his voice, but the voice of strangers they will not follow, SO, I encourage you that during this time in the Earth, when the occult practices are literally overwhelming schools, college campuses, exercise regimes, television, movies, videos, (the Super Bowl was packed with these for years) to not engage!
Many of the performing artists that are considered “popular musicians” have sold their souls to demonic activity in order to become wealthy. This is how it works many times, you make a pact with the devil for fame fortune and greatness, but there’s always a price to pay and that is that you are captive, held captive, and many times these people can’t get out without a tremendous amount of threat against them.
 
I’m Now Going To Lead You In A Prayer.
I feel in my spirit that the reason I was to put this on this podcast is that there are some of you who have been saying, “I need to know if this is really bad for me or if I’m being ridiculous, and being too stringent or too rigid”.
Let me tell you something. You can never be too rigid against Satanic involvement in your life and you can never be too stringent against saying, “is there anything that I am opening the door to in my home that can affect my children’s sleep, affect my health, affect the safety of our home,” because our homes are to be a place of peace for the presence of God, a sanctuary for God to reside on a more personal level.
The word says, “don’t you know you’re a temple of the Holy Spirit?”  When Jesus comes into our spirit, when the spirit of God comes to dwell inside of us after we surrender and we say, “Take that part of my life and use it”, that part dictates from the inside out. But, if we let our mind get in there and say, “I can handle it! I can handle it! It’s not that big of a deal! I feel so good! It’s good entertainment.  My body feels great when I engage in meditation!” (What kind of meditation?) 
Why do you need to meditate on something that is not bringing the presence of God closer to you, and you, closer to the presence of God? 
Because our flesh doesn’t want to be convicted.
Our flesh does not like the discipline of getting still, or studying the word of God, or resting in his presence, and worshiping him. Not unless we discipline it and train it, and grow in his word so we see the gratitude of how, IT is, the voice that controls and speaks to our spirit, causing us to be at peace and to war against the things of darkness.
We live in high-pressure times, and the warfare, (yes, it is warfare), it is demonic war against God‘s people, and, the number one thing is fear, anxiety, stress, worry, and then, just go ahead and escape for a little while.  Watch something on TV. The Flesh says, “Go ahead! Watch some of those movies on Netflix that have some horror scenes or a lot of heavy sex. You can handle it!
The "F word" is being used a lot, and now many other words have become commonplace. But you see the thing is, WE CAN’T, handle it! Because it gets into our brains, it gets into our minds. It gets into our way of thinking, and it dulls our ability to hear the clear and clean pure words of the Lord.
If you don’t want to walk with Jesus, 100% and you want a lukewarm walk, then you’re going to be susceptible to demonic activity in your life, and unfortunately if you have children, you’re opening the door to them, and the Lord talks in that one scripture about not letting children pass through the fire.
 
We Are Not To Offer Our Children Up In Sacrifice
To Demonic Activity, And Yet A Lot Of Parents
Go Ahead And Sacrifice Their Kids To A Lot Of
Occult Practices Because “It’s Hard To Be Different”.
 
You don’t have to have to be locking the doors, and turning the light bulbs out all the time for fear that the devil is coming to get you! But! I can tell you this! You do want to shut your door to occult practices and the doors that come through your iPads, your computers, and your television screens.
These are the places; these are the entry points that the enemy uses. Those out there preparing programming, the majority of them in the world are all geared towards doing satanic and fearful programming and if anything, they like to do “shock value” enticing types of programs to bring stimuli and fear! That’s how they get better listeners or viewers or people chatting and talking! But their goal is not to bring goodness or peace or safety. Their goal is to get you to come back and be addicted to more or “fascinated”.
 
This is where that word “fascination” and “magical” comes in.  We just feel like we’re mesmerized and drawn in, and we kind of want to know how it works. We want to know how it ends! And then before you know it, your mind has been seared, your conscience has been compromised. Then enters the guilt and then the shame, and then the hiding, and guess who did that?
When Adam and Eve engaged with the snake in the garden, he trapped them and lured them, and said, “It’s not that big of a deal! You can handle it! Did God really say that to you?”But once they tasted of evil, they were forever changed. They were forever changed and lost their innocence, and forever change mankind.
Imagine how much that sin nature is affecting us!
Thank goodness that Jesus came to wash us clean and poured out his life, and endured a horrible sacrifice for us, so that we would have a chance to have our minds cleaned. If we are introducing our children to it, imagine the torment, and the things passing down to them.
 
 I encourage you now to pray with me, and if it’s not for you, If you don’t have this problem, but you’re saying, “I agree I’ve had experiences like this or I know what you’re talking about!”
If you have family members maybe you have children, if you have a spouse, if you have grandchildren that are engaging in specific kinds of occultic things, (and friends you know with a lot of the PlayStation games and different kinds of Xbox games), there’s a tremendous amount of demonic looking creatures and a lot of darkness in those games and yeah, I guess, “you can handle it”, but if you’re murdering and killing and having guns shooting and bloodlust all the time, eventually, is it a just a game? Has it become a conquering or have you become desensitized?
SO! I ENCOURAGE YOU TO RETHINK WHERE
YOUR COMMITMENT TO THE LORD IS.
 
Do you want to hear the voice of the Lord?
Do you want to hear the Lord speaking clearly about the times about the days?
Do you want to hear him protecting you, telling you to get in the car and leave now, or “don’t go to the grocery store” or “don’t go down “that” street”? 
He WILL lead you like that and protect you!
 
Do you want the Lord to tell you his secrets?
Did you know that he tells them to his servants? But! He tells them to those that will spend time in his presence, seeking his voice, seeking to know him more. 
I encourage you to consider, "which tastes better".
The presence of God, and hearing his voice, or a temporary high and excitement, or the thrill that wears off, and then you’re buried in guilt, or harassed by something dark?
 
I’m just going to pray now. I’m going to ask you just to pray with me or agree with me in prayer for those that you know need to be free.
Heavenly Father, we come to you and Father you say that you roam the Earth to and fro, with your eyes you are looking all over the Earth, searching for those who will serve you, searching for those who will obey you.  Lord you know all things, you see all things, and you hear all things.
You are aware of the assignments of darkness against our families, against our children, against our grandchildren, against our spouses, against our brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles.
Father, we stand before you now individually and ask you for a clean heart. We ask you to wipe the slate clean of anything that we may have engaged in.
First of all we say we’ve sinned against you because it’s the truth.  If we’ve done these things we have done them against you. We have put our eyes upon idols or things at the world calls, current and exciting and we think that we’re just fitting in, as a part of it or maybe it seems like it’s not harmless. It looks like everybody else is doing fine.
Lord, l you know the condition of each man’s heart, and Lord you know those that are using this as a lure, so Father, we stand before you, and we ask that you would create in us a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within us. Don’t cast us away from your presence!
Lord, we don’t want your Holy Spirit taken from us, because we choose to listen to other evil spirits are divining spirits!
Now Lord, we say to you, we ask if there’s anything in our lives, anything in the lives of our families that they are engaging in or things that we have become accustomed to, that you would show us clearly and concisely, vividly, the things that we have put our hand to that are not from you.
Lord, we repent, we apologize. We are ashamed that we would allow even the whisper of a demonic subtlety to enter into our home.
We want to be the stewards, good stewards of what you’ve given us in children, in our spouses and our grandchildren. So we ask that you would put a barrier between us and the darkness, that conviction would rise up again, that we would heed your voice, and not the voice of a stranger!
Lord your word says whether we turn to the left or turn to the right, there you are right behind as a voice saying, “This is the way, walk in it”.
Lord, forgive us for thinking that we don’t want to be different or strange in this world, that we don’t want to be ridiculed. Father we are a peculiar people as you said, you made us and fashioned us to stand out in the dark world, and when we gave our lives to you, we committed that you would be Lord, Savior, King, Ruler, Master over our lives, and we apologize to you for ever touching anything that gave others mastery over us.
Now Father, we just come before you, and ask you to wash us clean. Wash our children, wash our grandchildren clean, wash our families clean.
Lord, we apologize and ask that now you would make the rudder of our ship turn back out to the direction where we seek you, and seek you alone. That the entertainment choices that we make in the future will be with wisdom and if there’s something on television that is dark or dirty, or evil or suggestive, we turn it off, we don’t just mute it. We turn it off. We will not let our eyes even watch, nor let our ears hear. 
Father. We thank you that you will speak loudly, “Don’t do that! Stop now!”  Just like you did to me. Father, we ask that you would speak loud and clear, because sometimes we’re dull of hearing.
Lord we submit to you, we glorify your name. We thank you, that you deliver us completely and you set us free when we’re captive to dark things.
We call upon the name of Jesus Christ who is God, who is the Son of God, the Sovereign king, and we thank you that the Holy Spirit is there to convict us of our sins. We thank you Triune being Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, for the privilege of being called children of God.
Lord, teach us to act like children of God, in our every day lives, in Jesus most holy and powerful name against darkness.
Amen.

Wednesday Oct 04, 2023


By Mary Lindow 
It’s a wonderful thing to be able to give a hand to someone who is in turmoil, but we can’t do it by just quoting nice Christian sayings or throwing out a random scripture at them.
It’s so easy to say, “Oh yes! Just trust in God! It’ll all work out. Somehow somewhere God will help you!”
 
When we see a person who is going through trials and who knows God, but is struggling hard, who is deeply fatigued and bobbing up and down under the water, barely keeping afloat, due to some difficulty or trial of their faith, we need to lift them up and we are not to judge them, because it is a slander against the very loved creation of Jesus Christ.
Oswald Chambers had a tremendous statement about this.
He said, “It’s a great thing to see physical courage, and still even strong, moral courage, but the greatest thing is to see spiritual courage, to see that we can help others stand true and strong in the integrity of Jesus, no matter what they are going through. People who have gone through a hot fire or as some call it, a crucible, these tested individuals are going to be a tremendous support to many other people.”
 
He went on to say,
“Here’s the reason we go through the things we do.  God wants to know if he can make us “good bread - good food” to feed to other people.”
 
In first Peter one through eight Peter says to us, “Though right now, you’re grieved by so many different trials, hang in there, remember the inheritance! It’s not messed up it’s not defiled, it’s not made dirty. Look to Jesus and you will receive the ultimate result and reward of your faith.”
 
MY FELLOW BELIEVERS, THERE’S A TIME COMING WHEN EVERYTHING THAT RIGHT NOW THAT IS A PROBLEM, WILL BE PERFECTLY SOLVED. In the meantime, are we prepared to let people poke at us, to joke at us, to humiliate us, to let them have their momentary agendas over certain narratives?
When you stick it out and hold on, looking to the greater horizon, to the very central part of Christianity, which is your personal walk, your personal relationship to Jesus, how do you continue to handle the cruelties of this current world system?
 
LOOK TO HIM! LOOK AT HIM!
Which actually means, look for spiritual discernment, remembering it’s a difficulty to be weak, and God strengthens us to go through anything when Jesus Christ is what he is, and who he said he was!
 
“If we have a trial of faith, we must endure it until we get through it,
and more often than not, even other Christians who are watching
might pull back in disgust at our difficulties or losses.”
 
THESE INDIVIDUALS HAVE YET TO ACTUALLY SURRENDER THEIR LIVES TO HUMILITY. They enjoy thinking God has blessed them with earthly things and pleasures because somehow, they are more clever and worked harder at achieving.
 
THE RICH YOUNG RULER WAS MUCH LIKE THIS.
He did all the right actions, was good hearted and generous, oh yes! But he loved the attention it garnered as well. When Jesus asked him to sell it all, sell out 100% to help those around him, and to come and follow Jesus, he couldn’t. He loved being in charge and in control of his own destiny.
 
IT SAYS THAT HE WENT AWAY SAD.
Sad because he couldn’t live both lifestyles at the same time.
He most likely thought he could finance Jesus quite well, and make a return on his investment if the marketing drew good crowds!
 
IF YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH TRIALS OF FAITH IN THE PAST,
GOD WILL THEN BRING ACROSS OUR PATHS
OTHER MORE IMMATURE SOULS,
AND WE HAVE NO BUSINESS DESPISING THEM.
 
WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP THEM.
We are to be to them something that has embraced and fully transferred into our souls, which is, the very fundamental nature of Jesus.
Remember, people will draw off of that “virtue” leaving you.
The scripture says Jesus, knew in himself that power had gone out of him. This is when the woman with the shaming, hemorrhaging issue of blood said, “If I could just touch that piece of fabric, the hem of his garment!” and Jesus did say, “Someone touched me! I felt Virtue leave me!”
 
FRIENDS! YOU AND I WILL FEEL THE SAME THING!
There are people who spiritually and morally who will literally draw or pull the virtue out of your life, and if you don’t keep up the supply from the life of Jesus Christ you will be exhausted! We must keep our spiritual strength strong and let others nourish themselves until they are able to stand on their own feet, and then take direct life instructions from him.
 
DON’T BE DISTURBED IF PEOPLES LIVES SEEM TO BE MESSY…
… OR THINGS ARE CHANGING AND NOT FITTING PERFECTLY LIKE A JIGSAW PUZZLE PIECE!
It actually means there is a terrific possibility of greater things developing!
And the same thing spiritually is that if there is turbulence in our lives, God is turning it into the right thing in the right time! So, in the meantime, look to Jesus, and take the next step as it comes.
 
“GET THROUGH WHATEVER YOU’RE GOING THROUGH
AND YOU’LL BE A TREMENDOUS ASSISTANCE TO OTHERS
WHO ARE GOING THROUGH THE VERY SAME THING!”
 
IT’S NOT FOR US TO SHAME OR HUMILIATE OR CRITICIZE OTHERS for not being where you are spiritually, but instead, it’s for us to see that we are good nourishing bread for these people in the hands of God. 
If we look at Job Chapter one verse one that verse certainly speaks loudly!
It says Job was blameless and upright.  He feared God and pushed away or shunned evil and this was the character God gave to Job.
God asked Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There’s no one on earth like him”, and Satan, then replied and said, “Well, strip him, and he will curse you to your face!”
 
SATAN WANTED JOB TO FALL. HE WANTS US TO FALL,
But God wanted Job to be blessed. So Satan tried to strip Job from God.
With a Malignant, and a strong, strong, evil energy, he goes to work, and then in one day he brought the greatest man in all of the East into abject poverty and then visits him with great sadness, blow after blow of such a difficult and crushing nature and with such speed this all fell upon Job!
We just have to marvel at the testimony of the Holy Spirit that in all of this, Job did not sin by blaming God with wrongdoing, that’s in verse 22 of Job one.
What a massive win for God, and what a punch in the face and a defeat for Satan.
 
A Current Prophetic Word
Many hidden and also more visual Prophetic individuals are hearing similar threads and words from the Holy Spirit regarding what I’m about to share with you.
I encourage you to be very focused and still as you take these insights to heart.
The Father has things that are very succinct and encouraging for you to hear.
“Those who have stayed faithful to God’s leading, stepping out into new things will start to see doors opened into the promises. The prophetic word of testing and preparing them for this time is now coming to pass.
There is a precise blessing for the double portion where that which was conceived and dreamed about in the years past, and now it surfaces into a double blessing.
This is the year where the prophetic voice brings into the open new life, brings restoration, strengthening the weary soul, enlarging your heart, resurrecting the dry bones.
This is the prophecy to His church. ‘As you reorder, reset yourself to His leading, His mission, and His headship, He brings the wind of His Spirit to cause His church to rise up. Expect to see resurrection in the church’.
Doors begin to appear for many, with heavenly encounters and signs showing the way. Those who have stayed faithful to God’s leading, stepping out into new things will start to see doors opened into the promises.
For some, this year will be one where you start to truly enter the dream you felt God called you to during the last year or two, even though it seemed to lead to nothing, and you found yourself back at the beginning of where it all started.
But through the voice of the Father and the Son, they have been establishing you, preparing you, for what lies ahead. This year, development has been taking place, positioning you for the door that is about to open.
The is the beginning of the prophetic word and dream being realized…
…But it is only the beginning.
The place where no options and hard brick walls once existed, now, doors appear, new partnerships and pure relationships continue to be revealed.
This is for personal moves of God and for national moves of God globally.
The moment and movements, yes, better mobility allowing the passage through the doors is being made possible.However, be wise and aware that the enemy crouches at the door, so don’t be deceived, but in the power of God and faith in His leading, continue, despite the battle.
Know too that Satan will seek to deceive by building his false gates and attractive “other doors” options, flanking the Lord’s, so; prayerfully seek the will of God.
The key that opens the Doors of The Father is humility and dependence on Him.
This door is opened by the Doorkeeper.
Hearts once closed to love will begin to open the journey to humility, bringing about those who will bend their knees. Those who carry the gospel will see their light received by those bowing and seeking God, and a new awakening will take place.
It’s time for the doorkeepers to announce the invitation, ‘Come, enter into His presence, open your heart to His perfect love, and you will find rest. The Lord will make His home in you.’
 
My Husband Steve had a most beautiful encounter with the Lord during an early morning and he is going to share his exact words and understanding about what that the Lord gave to him in the next few minutes of this podcast.
It is so very timely and certainly the word of the Lord for this time that we are living in and experiencing.
 
PECULIAR PEOPLE
(Jesus Christ) who did give himself for us, that he might ransom us from all lawlessness, and might purify to himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works;” Titus 2:14 (Young’s Literal Translation)
PERHAPS YOU HAVEN'T CONSIDERED YOURSELF PECULIAR, BUT THAT’S HOW THE APOSTLE PAUL REFERS US TO.
Why? Because Peculiar People walk by the spirit, and not by the flesh. In our temporal life on this earth we are bombarded with difficult situations. However, even as we live in the flesh our life is hidden in God and we who walk in the spirit overcome these situations.
“I am crucified with Christ nevertheless, I live, yet, not I but Christ, who lives himself in me. The life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave his life for me.
THERE IS A SONG THAT WAS OFTEN SUNG IN WORSHIPS SERVICES THAT ORIGINATED FROM PSALM 48:1-3 
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised.
In the city of our God, on the mountain of his holiness.
Beautiful for situations, the God of the whole earth,
Is Mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the City of the Great King?
 
ON THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, THE INGATHERING, THE FIRST NIGHT OF SUKKOTH, SEPTEMBER 30, 2023, AT 4AM, I WAS AWAKENED AND WALKED OUTSIDE TO SEE THE FULL HARVEST MOON.
It was an unusually bright night.
Prophetically it represented the soon coming harvest of souls about to be ingathered to His Kingdom.
Next to the moon shown the planet Venus - the morning star. We know the Morning Star to be another name Jesus gave to Himself in the Book of Revelations. I also saw the Little Dipper shining very brightly as if reporting that His Saints were about to “dip in“ and gather the end time harvest for the Kingdom of God.
In this weary season because of the constant assault of evil agendas we often feel as if we are literally on the battlefield of the last days War between Two Kingdoms. Satan’s assault, his purpose, is to steal, kill and destroy, particularly from the Saints of God. His method is to first come by fearful thought to distract us from who we are in our spirit man and steal our divine purpose.
 
MANY SAINTS ARE PRESENTLY BURDENED BY SITUATIONS OF THE WORLD. They are looking to their situations as being more real than God’s Word and the power that He has given to them. If your purpose is stolen it is equal to neutralizing you or equal to spirituality killing you.
When your eyes are focused more upon the negative situation than on who we are in Christ, then Satan has not only stolen from you, he has robbed you of your true identity. The ‘eyes of our flesh’ are then held captive by him as we focus more on the problem than the victory we have in Jesus. He said, “I have come that you might have life abundantly!” We stand as conquerors in Him or we succumb to the trouble and are defeated.
 
GOD SAYS WE ARE A PECULIAR PEOPLE.
Why?
We who know our God intimately, walk in the spirit and not in the flesh.
We are unmoved by situations. “He who has ears to hear, (he who walks in the spirit realm), let him hear what God is saying to the churches.”
 
EARLY IN 2022 THE LORD SPOKE TO ME AND SAID,
“Live in the history of your future!”
Exactly what does that mean?
Ask yourself these questions:
In the spirit realm how do you envision yourself in the future?
What are (or will be) your accomplished results?
 What passions did God instill in you and what purpose has He created in you before the foundation of the world?
 
IN THE SPIRIT, IN THE FUTURE, DO YOU SEE YOURSELF
SETTLED AND LOOKING BACK ON YOUR LIFE
 HAVING COMPLETED WHAT GOD HAS PURPOSED FOR YOU
TO ACCOMPLISH DURING YOUR SHORT SPAN ON THE EARTH?
 
In the midst of your current situation, according to your future self, do you look back at the present obstacles, the situation that Satan threw at you to trip you up, and see yourself as having overcome it? 
Do you envision yourself as confident in the Lord having applied His word and having walked by faith and not by sight?
In the spirit you are imagining that you have advanced yourself in faith?
Are you living in the years yet to come and looking back to the now seeing how you overcame the situation by the Word of God? That is how you live now “…in the history of your future!”
You borrow from your future victorious self and apply that to the present.
 
FOR EXAMPLE, LOOKING AT A MONETARY SITUATION OF LACK OF FINANCES, IT IS ALWAYS ACCOMPANIED WITH ANXIETY.
Scripture says, “Anxiety in the heart of a man weighs it down.” - Proverbs 12:25.
IT IS THE DEVIL’S TRAP TO DIVERT YOU INTO EMBRACING WORRY RATHER THAN FOCUSING ON ALL THAT YOU HAVE SUPPLIED IN THE PROMISES OF THE LORD. That same scripture above is completed with “but a good word makes it glad!” In other words, focusing on the Word of God and the promises He made to provide for you are more powerful than any lack you might be experiencing in the natural.
 
YOU ARE A PECULIAR PEOPLE!
You are not moved by what you see, by what present upsetting situations you are going through. “The joy of the Lord is your strength.”  Peculiar People have joy in the midst of natural situations. They override circumstances by faith standing on the promises of God.  In their spirit they see themselves having passed through the “valley of the shadow of death” overcoming these natural situations by remaining confident in what God says about them.
 
PECULIAR PEOPLE HAVE A FOUNDATION ON WHICH THEY STAND.
“Having done all to stand,” (standing firm on the Word and who God called them to be), “stand therefore!” They see themselves, not on the defense, but on the offense, having the upper hand. They confidently wrestle the adversary and rejoice in prayers of thanksgiving. They are resolute in presenting themselves and pleading their case before the Throne of Grace, fully dressed in the armor of God, which is the holy character of the Lord Jesus. They stand in faith stating what scripture says about their situation saying, “God, here is what your Word says about it and I’m holding you to it!” He loves that boldness!
 
PECULIAR PEOPLE STAND FIRM AGAINST THE WILES OF THE DEVIL BECAUSE THEY SEE THEMSELVES AS VICTORS.
They envision who they have become in their future self.
They know who they are because of what Jesus did on the Cross and who God called them to be.
They know their purpose is to bring heaven to earth, to be a present expression that represents the faith of all the great Cloud of Witnesses.
Peculiar People already envision themselves as having defeated the devil and as being part of the City of God, the New Jerusalem. This is their future! “Live NOW in the history of your future!”
They have already overcome natural situations and the devil’s ploy against them.
HOW YOU ASK? 
“And they overcame and conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, for they did not love their life and renounce their faith even when faced with death.” Revelations 12:11 (Amplified)
 
FIRST, VICTORY COMES BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB.
They identify themselves with Christ on the Cross having had died with Him, then having risen with Him where their life is conducted by faith and hidden in the Son of God.
Secondly, it is by the word of their testimony, their covenant!
They live their earthly lives through Him in spirit over the flesh. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Forever is the spiritual place that is beyond the dimension of eternity. It has no beginning and no end. These saints are hosting Christ in their spirit; therefore, they live through the Alpha and Omega in this life on earth.
Thirdly, they overcame Satan in their identity with Christ because they love not their our own lives, their own soul and body, even to a situation of facing physical death. If necessary, in our stand against Satan, we volunteer for martyrdom.
How is the possible? Because we have already died with Him!
 
PECULIAR PEOPLE LIVE THROUGH CHRIST JESUS BY WALKING IN THE SPIRIT, a realm higher than our natural earthly physical life. We live on Mount Zion, the city of the New Jerusalem, along with the victorious Saints who have preceded us.
The Morning Star has risen in our heart and we see ourselves for who we are as victors in the spirit. We live now on this earth borrowing on the promise of who we will be in the age to come. We live in the history of our future! We live as the Ingathered.
We call those things that are not (presently in the midst of our situations) as though they were, because by faith, in the spirit realm, they already are a reality in the purpose of Christ within us. That is how you fulfill and complete the part of the prayer that Jesus taught His disciples to pray, and to live. “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven.”
 
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN YOU!
It is your personal relationship with God in spirit.
It is your union with Him in revelation that you are one with God in intimacy.
Once that is established, and then you can confidently carry His presence outwardly and exhibit His nature toward others.
 
YOU ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND RADIATE HIS GLORY.
That is what it means to bring His Kingdom on earth “as it is in heaven.”
 
PECULIAR PEOPLE BRING THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN TO THE EARTH.
Stand firm in who you are as the bright Morning Star continues to arise in your heart, even to its brightest, as the light of the full day or noon.
Live today in the history of your future. Be Peculiar.
 
LET’S GIVE THANKS FOR GOD SPEAKING TO US MY FRIENDS!
He spoke to Steve that we are to be unusual, peculiar radiant people, filled with the light of Jesus!
Thank you Jesus…. For BEING the door of Hope.
Revelation 3:8 says,
“I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.
I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
 
Isaiah 22:22 declares,
“And I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David. He shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.”
 
Speak Lord…. Your Servants are listening.
Here we are.
Send us.

Wednesday Aug 23, 2023


By Mary Lindow
In this podcast I am going to share two interesting supernatural events that took place in regards to “prayer walking” in two different locations.
If you will remember the story of the battle at Jericho, Joshua and the people who marched around that fortified city, you will know that prayer walking and praise have a potent affect!
We would often have groups of people walk among our community near where our church facility was and they would simply pray quietly for the neighborhoods they were walking in. Often there would be people out in their yards or sitting on their front porches, and they would stop to visit with them, simply asking if there were something they could pray about with them, and would state that they had no agenda other than just a walk through the neighborhood and to pray. 
Out of that came great moments where peoples live were being touched, and changed! These individuals would often end up coming to church where they could be loved on, discipled and find family in Christ to help them grow, or to help them through difficult times.
We knew one pastor who had everybody gather one Sunday during the service, and then he gave packets of scripture verses and candy bars to groups of them or whoever was there, and said, “Today’s service is concluded! Here’s a block map for you to go walk and pray and greet your neighbors around the church!”
Imagine the shock of the people that they had to leave their comfortable church building and go out and actually be praying for their neighbors physically, and look for opportunities to help them!
The next Sunday, the building was so packed the people couldn’t believe it! People had asked for help and asked for prayer, because someone dared to reach out to them.
THERE ARE TIMES WHEN GOD WILL STRATEGICALLY
SEND GROUPS OF PEOPLE
TO PRAY THROUGHOUT
THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS, THEIR CITIES,
AND, THEIR STATES.
It’s during these times when we focus on praying that the God brings about not only a change in our hearts, but he also begins to see that the land is being blessed by his people, rather than being cursed by the wicked.
 
WE ARE IN A TIME WHERE GOD IS CALLING HIS BODY TO BE ACTIVE, and he is literally thrusting them out of the upper room experiences that they’ve been dwelling in for a long time, and sending them out into the streets to preach the gospel in love and act in kindness and in listening.
 
Hey! The world is frightened right now!
People are terrified at what they see
coming against them from the
encroaching communist regimes.
They don’t know what to do!
 
AND SO, HUGE PRAYER INITIATIVES
ARE EXPLODING EVERYWHERE!
 
But the one thing that we must not be afraid of is this to go out of the church building and walk our neighborhoods and pray, because this is us in action out in the highways and byways, compelling people to come in, simply by being available.
There are times you may meet no one while you’re walking and praying but you continue to listen to the Holy Spirit! He may have you stop gently in front of someone’s home and then show you something that you need to pray about for that individual or that family.
You just quietly pray as you walk and bless, or pray however the Holy Spirit leads you for that home.
This is faith in action, and it is above all, love in action!
 
SO NOW, FOR THE TWO SPECIFIC INTERESTING
PRAYER WAKING EXPERIENCES THAT I HAVE HAD
THAT I’D LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU!
Here we go!
Steve and I took a team of women from across the United States, to Mundolsheim, France a city not far from well-known Strasbourg, France. We were working with another wonderful French ministry team, “Le Olivier” called, “The Olive Branch” in English, and we were preparing to have a multi-national women’s conference. We had built a wonderful relationship with the key leaders, Christine and Michele and we had arrived with the team of women who came from all across the United States and who paid their own way to come. Many of them were Pastoral, Counselors, Ministers, intercessors, missionaries, and also strong Christian businesswomen.
 
AS WE MET AND BEGAN TO PRAY AND PREPARE for the days ahead when the conference would take place, we had a map of the city the conference was being held in on a poster board and pointed out to individual different places we would like to have everyone go walk and pray, in the community where we were going to be having the conference.
AT THE TIME, FRANCE HAD
MORE RESTRICTIVE RULES ABOUT
RELIGIOUS GATHERINGS AND CHURCH PRACTICES THAN CHINA.
 
WE HAD FAVOR WITH THE CITY MAYOR.
He was a strong Lutheran who had a love for Jesus, so he did everything he could to secure the large meeting hall for us, and the team that helped us from the City Hall were lovely people.
As we assigned different city location areas for groups of people participating in the conference as leaders or helpers, we asked them to take their Bibles and to go in groups of three or four, to begin to walk and pray for the village of Mundolshiem.
 
This region is a very difficult place to plow in, especially when it comes to anything that might have the power of the Holy Spirit flowing.
We had women coming in from Brussels, France, Germany, Romania, Croatia, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, and we also found out we had individuals who were led by the Lord to the conference who were from Iraq. This all was a result of the Lord having everyone prepare in prayer for months ahead.
 
THE TEAMS OF THREE AND FOUR INDIVIDUALS BEGAN TO SPREAD OUT throughout the village/city of Mundolsheim. Everyone knew that because there was a language barrier, we would not be able to talk with very many people since we did not have enough French interpreters. So, people went with the intent simply to pray and to bless this city.
We asked the Lord to use us to bring peace and joy, and also to discern, how to pray.
 
During the prayer walk, one group was specifically really feeling strong to pray and intercede for salvation among the young people, and asked the Lord to please show them how to pray, and to please give them an indicator that they were on the right track into what they felt they were being called to pray about. 
 
SUDDENLY THEY BEGAN TO HEAR MUSIC DOWN THE STREET ABOUT A BLOCK AWAY. (In France they still do open the shutters in the upper level of their homes to let air pass through!)
The closer they got, they recognized the worship song that was very popular during that time. As they approached where they could hear the music more clearly, there in the window, with his back to the window was a young man playing the guitar and worshiping the Lord in French, singing, “I will glorify the King of Kings! I will glorify the Lamb!”
 He had no idea that this group of individuals was now standing down in the front of his house lifting their hands and praising God with him!  When he finished his song, they began to clap and he turned around!
 
HE SAW THEM PRAISING GOD AND HE JOINED IN WITH THEM, clapping his hands and rejoicing, that even though none of them could understand each other, the common bond was, that they knew they belonged to each other because of Jesus!
Everyone tried to sign language with him and he spoke a little bit of English so they told him about the conference. He was so excited to hear about it! Even though the conference was for women during the day, night sessions were opened to men.
 
THIS WAS A CLEAR INDICATOR THAT THE LORD HAD DIRECTED
THESE INDIVIDUALS TO PRAY FOR THE YOUTH IN THAT CITY!
 
And, as they walked the streets and interceded, the Lord gave them a prophetic indicator that there were those in the city that were young people, called to impact that city through worship!
EVERY GROUP THAT WENT OUT TO WALK
HAD SOME KIND OF INTERESTING EVENT TAKE PLACE
OR AN INDICATION OF HOW TO PRAY.
 
God wastes nothing when we dedicate ourselves to his purposes! Not every time you prayer walk will there be something supernatural or spectacular take place in the natural, but what will take place in our heart, is that we shed fear and what we think people will think about us and we simply and quietly go serve our communities. Above all of that we serve the Lord by praying for those around us, as the word of God tells to us to do.
THE SCRIPTURE TELLS US TO PRAY
FOR THOSE IN AUTHORITY AND TO PRAY
FOR OUR CITIES, AND FOR THOSE
THAT ARE OUR LEADERS.
 
I know of groups of people who have taken time to go walk around their local city buildings very quietly without fanfare or trying to draw attention and simply prayed for all the leaders, the police force, the fire department and all those others who serve in their city communities.
 
NOW, MY NEXT STORY ABOUT PRAYER WALKING IS VERY RELEVANT
FOR WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW.
 
I urge you to listen carefully,
because I believe that there will be another attempt
to put a complete lockdown on the United States
with another forced pandemic or a “forced fear” about a pandemic.
 
I urge you to be very wise and discerning about listening to the encroaching fear mongering, and continual threats against your freedoms.
 
IT IS FOR THIS THAT CHRIST DIED TO SET US FREE, AND NOT TO TREMBLE UNDER THE HAND OF TYRANNY. We are never to hide our faith under a bushel basket, or hide what we believe in order to protect ourselves from opinion.
 
IT IS WHEN WE OBEY THE LORD IN THE DARKEST TIMES,
THAT THE GREATEST POWER,
AND THE GREATEST STRENGTH COMES.
 
IN MARCH 2020, WE WERE AT PEAK LOCKDOWNS HERE IN COLORADO. People were so afraid of each other that even neighbors would mask and rush to their cars and not even wave at each other as if perhaps this diabolical biological weapon, would somehow be further released in a wave or in a friendly greeting.
 
OUR TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE MID TO LOW 50S ON A MONDAY THAT SEEMED TO BE EXTREMELY BLEAK. Everywhere we turned people were in fear, and the newscasts were nonstop bombardment of fear, control, and banter.
I was in our guest room, which is also my prayer room, just pondering everything and quite weary of the noise, knowing that this was not going to get better quickly.
I was looking over a bunch of scriptures that I was going to pray over my city as well as pray for our neighbors, and I was strongly urged by the Holy Spirit to put on a warm coat, warm clothing and gloves, and take a walk around my neighborhood.
I was to take those scripture verses with me on my piece of paper and simply and quietly walk all of the blocks and pray those scriptures and speak peace over my neighborhood. So, I got bundled up and I told my husband Steve that I was going to go prayer walk.
I did not put a mask on.
I was not going to walk in fear.
 
Block after block, I was simply walking and praying and, listening closely to the Holy Spirit as to how I was to pray the scripture verses I read that were spoken out quietly.
As I was coming down one street there was also a looped, small cul-de-sac, and so I took a left-hand turn and began to walk around the cul-de-sac.
As I was coming around the edge of the cul-de-sac, coming back towards the street just being quiet, reading my prayers and scriptures, I noticed that there were three young women standing outside the front of their house on the lawn drinking large cans of beer, and being generally rowdy and laughing.
I didn’t pay much attention to it because I was busy praying.
 
SUDDENLY THEY STOPPED, AND ALL OF THEM CAME TO THE EDGE OF THE SIDEWALK AND STARED AT ME as I was approaching to go down the other side of the street across the street from them!
ALL AT ONCE THEY BEGAN CUSSING AND SWEARING AT ME, laughing maniacally, and then one woman in a very guttural maniacal voice began to yell,
“We’re going to spit on you!
We’re going to give you Covid!
What are you doing out here?
We’re going to spit on you we’re going to breathe on you.
Cooooooooviiiiid is coming for you!”
 
THEY WERE LAUGHING AND SCREECHING AND SPITTING OUT INTO THE STREET!  At this point, I had stopped just to stare at them and realized that I was seeing a full force of mocking and harassing spirits coming my direction, in complete demonic manifestation!
Hmm…  Apparently quiet prayer walking for your neighborhood really upsets the Demonic strongholds!
 
I did not give them any attention and as I was walking forward, and I looked up into the sky above the house where they were, the day was overcast and had gloomy pockets of clouds so the sun was not showing for the majority the time I was walking.
 
SUDDENLY, UP OVER THE TOP OF THE HOUSE THE SUN BROKE FORTH and I was just beginning to pray in tongues asking the Lord to please keep me safe as I passed by them, because I really didn’t want them coming over to the street to engage with me if they were either drunk or fully manifesting demonic activity!
Again, as I looked up over the top of the house, suddenly the sun burst forth behind this formation in the sky, and there in the sky was a giant cloud, CLEARLY shaped like an eagle.
It’s pretty obvious from the picture in my introduction, since I did have my phone with me and I was able to snap it.
I had just gotten done praying for the United States of America when I was coming around the cul-de-sac, asking the Lord to protect our nation, and was led by the Spirit of God to pray regarding a need for protection in the skies, and protection over our nation.
In Isaiah 40:31, God compares His care for His people, to that of a mother eagle who spreads her wings to cover her young and carry them away from danger.
I was crying out in prayer for our nation like a Mother would for a child in grave danger!
AS I SAW THAT HUGE CLOUD ABOVE ME, I STOPPED AND STARED, AND OF COURSE GOT MY PHONE OUT AND TOOK THE PICTURE. I think the women thought i was getting ready to take a picture of them, because they began to really act up!
But as I stood there and stared in the sky, they too turn around and looked. I continued on my way and did not engage with them so I can’t honestly tell you what they thought of that formation in the sky, but I can tell you it was so obvious that no one could’ve missed it.
I went around the corner and passed where they were, and they seemed to withdraw and go back into the lawn area as if something was subduing them.
As I turned down another block, and was pondering what I had just seen, the sun then went back behind the clouds and the shape was gone.
 
I BEGAN TO PRAY IN TONGUES, PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT AS THE HOLY SPIRIT GUIDED ME.
Several times I was praying, I would speak out in English the word, “It’s a coup it’s a coup! Pray against the coup!” So then I would I began to speak scriptures about God exposing every evil thing that is hidden in the darkness and to bring it into the light.
I was praying so intensely in the spirit for the next 15 minutes I vaguely remember walking a couple blocks and I was at this point, walking pretty quickly and purposefully.
 
AS I CAME AROUND ANOTHER BLOCK, THERE WAS A YOUNG MAN AND HIS WIFE GETTING OUT OF THEIR PICK UP TRUCK WITH A BABY, and they had masks on. I was walking more down the middle of the street because it was a quiet neighborhood street, and as I walked by them I smiled at them and waved and I said, “I hope you’re OK! Have a peaceful afternoon, don’t be afraid.”  The young man turned around and stopped and looked at me like a deer in the headlights. And then he said, “Thank you so much. I appreciate that so much!”
All it took was one kind word, one risk to engage,
and someone stopped and felt that love
and felt that connection.
 
I HAVE COME TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE PRESENCE OF GOD FLOWS OUT OF US like the virtue flowed out of Jesus for the woman who had the issue of blood. He said he felt virtue leave him when she touched the hem of his garment.
 
WHEN WE ARE BUSY OUT AND ABOUT PRAYER WALKING,
BEING CARRIERS OF THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST,
BRINGING PRAYER INTO DARK PLACES,
WE ARE EMANATING A LIGHT THAT WE MAY NOT SEE,
BUT IT IMPACTS THOSE AROUND US.
 
Obviously the demonic forces in my neighborhood didn’t like that I was out praying and breaking strongholds of fear and critical judgment against each other in our neighborhood!
So what did the evil darkness tried to do try turn around and threaten me,actually it gave itself away! The enemy let me know exactly that he knew I was out praying for my neighborhood and that he was going to threaten me with spit or Covid!
Needless to say, I knew I was on to something!
You do not need to have some large ministry or some affiliation with a group to go prayer walk! You as a single, individual believer can walk in all the authority you need to go walk in the power of Christ and pray for your neighborhood!
 
MANY PEOPLE SAY, “I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN!”
So, I’m going to give you some simple, easy guidelines.
Don’t make it difficult!
As you walk and pray, the Holy Spirit will guide you!
Here are a few instructions and guidelines on how to prayer walk and, WHY to prayer walk!
 
WHAT IS PRAYER WALKING?
First of all it’s following the example that Jesus gave us in Luke 10 try to go out in twos if possible.
In Ezekiel 22 verses 30 through 31 it shows us that we are we’re standing in the gap for people by praying for people! Standing there in prayer for them between heaven and their lives.
Then in Luke 10:19 it says, Jesus gave us authority over the enemy, so as we pray, we begin to stand firm against the strongholds in our neighborhoods or cities. In Matthew 18:14 it states that we have to seek God‘s guidance in whom we approach when we are prayer walking.
WHEN YOU GET READY TO PRAYER WALK,
THE FIRST THING TO DO IS TO SET
AN INTENTION FOR YOUR WALK.
 
There are multiple possibilities as to why you’re going to take a walk and pray.
 
First of all think about praying for your community.
Pay attention to the details around you.
What do you see that needs your prayer?
There may be a home on the street that looks impoverished or perhaps it looks like it might even possibly be a location where there is crime taking place.
Explore a question situation with God!
Ask God to help you discover truth!
 
ASK THE LORD WHAT IS HE WANTING YOU TO SEE, then if you’re meditating on a passage or a verse of scripture like psalms, as you walk keep referring to the piece of scripture that helps you meditate on the word, and speak the word as you’re praying. That’s why I take notes with me. Just a little piece of paper with scriptures so I know that I am praying the word of God over my neighborhood.
 
Simply enjoy being in the presence of God and in nature. It’s wonderful! Enjoy the beauty around you and the Divine presence of God.
I would recommend to pray before you start walking and also be open to God’s leading in this time of walking. If you see people on your walk, you can say hi! If you happen to strike up a conversation, feel free to ask them if they have anything you could pray for.
 
WHEN YOU FINISH YOUR WALK just as you’re coming home, give thanks to God for this time that you’ve had praying for your city and tell him how much you love your neighborhood and that you want these people to feel the love of God.
I call this “Prayer walking made easy”.
 
When Steve and I were pastoring or when we knew that there was a situation going on in our community we looked to partner with God, or in a new area, we’d start by prayer walking the streets to prepare our hearts for the harvest.
We see throughout the Bible that God calls people to walk the land and as we do, this physical act becomes a spiritual one!
 
In Genesis 3:17 it says,
“Go walk through the length and breadth of the land for I am giving it to you!”
 
WOW! I like that one!
 
Joshua 13 says,
“I will give you every place that your foot touches as promised to Moses”, so prayer walking helps is to really see the area and its people through God‘s eyes.
 
WE CAN HEAR WHAT GOD IS SAYING, and get an understanding of how the Holy Spirit might want to engage the people who live there, and when we pray or walk, all our senses become part of our prayer as sights, smells and sounds prompts our discussion with God.
Understand that prayer walking is not about standing on a street corner praying out loud and preaching! It’s a time of learning, listening. and importantly, intercession on behalf of the people that we want to reach. It’s very important that we know how to pray when we’re prayer walking, so ideally if you can find a friend to walk with you. It’s nice to have someone to be in agreement with while you’re walking.
Each of you can pray and take turns to just walk the streets of your neighborhood silently. praying for each person, each house, and praying for specific needs if you know them or, just pray for God‘s truth and blessings for each person.
 
PRAYER WALKING SHOULD BE LOW PROFILE. You don’t need to carry a huge Bible, pray out loud, or tell everybody what you’re doing.
Just quietly pray as you walk.
THERE ARE TIMES WHEN PEOPLE ARE REALLY FORGETTING
THAT WE CAN PRAYER WALK FOR THE SCHOOLS
THAT CHILDREN ARE GOING TO!
 
What do we pray for?  We pray for the coaches and teachers, the bus drivers, the traffic directors, the cafeteria staff, front office staff, the school nurse, security personnel, especially pray for the superintendents of the schools right now!
We definitely need to see a move of God among school boards!
 
We need to pray for arts teachers and school counselors who need wisdom in assessing the needs of children and pray that they are not forcing harmful narratives on them.
We need to pray for classroom teachers that they use efficient time management and creative planning and love the children and teach them well, not indoctrinate them!
Special education teachers need prayers so very much, and we need to pray for new students.
 
The big thing to pray for in schools is for bullies.
When I taught school, the bullies would even bully the teachers! This is a stronghold that comes against teachers! It comes against tenderhearted students or young students coming into the schools.
BULLIES USE A STRONGHOLD
OF CONTROL AND SHAME!
 
We need prayer for specific care above all during this time where we have so much child abduction, taking place, definitely praying for children who walk to school, that they would make wise decisions and be alert to cars and people and Safety.
I encourage you to pray specifically with the names of teachers if you know them and be sure to include prayers of thanks.
 
WE BEGIN TO PRAISE GOD
AS WE SEE CHANGE IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS
TAKING PLACE DUE TO PRAYER.
 
 
Now!
I WILL GIVE YOU A SPECIFIC STORY AS I FINISH THIS PODCAST.
We had a family that lived across the street in one of the homes near us who lived there many years and they had one young daughter. I’ll say her name is “J” because I don’t want to give her name away. She was a darling little girl, but there was tension between Mom and Dad.
Eventually, Mom and Dad moved out and the house became a rental to some lovely people that lived there.
Now understand, every now and then this couple would come over to check on their house/property, and their little girl would be there. As she grew up she always came across the street to talk to us because she enjoyed visiting with Steve and I and our boys, and then as our boys got older and left home, she would still come over and we would always visit with her.
She knew that we were ministers or pastors at one time, but we never pushed anything on her. We simply showed her love and always gave her cookies at Christmas.
 
FAST-FORWARD, 15 YEARS.
Suddenly her dad and mom have been divorced for years and her dad has decided to let her live in the home by herself as a single adult. Who are the first people that she decides to come over and talk to?  You guessed it! Steve and I!
More and more she would come across the street or we would meet her at the edge of the sidewalk and just chat about lawn mowing, the weather, and, she got a new puppy.
 
ON A SPRING EVENING THIS YEAR, I invited her to come over for coffee and sit on the front porch to enjoy the beautiful evening. We were going to come inside, but her new puppy wanted to run around out in the front yard area so we sat on the area instead.
Slowly, but surely she began to tell me her story.
What heartache she had experience through her parents divorce. What she had just recently gone through with the Covid pandemic, and having to bury both of her grandparents, because her mother had a complete breakdown.
 
This young woman is just now 21 years old.
We sat there and I talked and laughed with her and let her share her deep, innermost sorrows and fears. I held her in my arms as she began to weep and cry out of despair and feeling so lost knowing that her Dad was going to soon remarry, and she was being rejected and belittled by the new woman in his life and her daughters.
This lead me to be able to gently task her is she had ever thought about asking God to show himself to her? Have you ever said, “If you’re real, please let me know who you are.” She has had plenty of counseling from a secular counselor, she has relatives who come from a cultish spiritual background, and have tried to force it on her.
So, when I told her that she can ask God to show himself to her, that he loves her and that he can handle her anger, that he could handle her asking him this, it was like an entire new world for her!
She went home, smiling and happy and hugged me again, and again.
 
We have waved as she drives by. She’s come over and talks on the lawn.
A few times we’ve given her some baked goods or fresh vegetables from our garden, and we’ve left it alone.
 
BUT, SHE CONTINUES TO GRAVITATE BACK TOWARDS OUR HOME BECAUSE SHE FEELS SOMETHING. She had told me she felt so safe and calm when she was around me. I told her that’s the kindness of God that you’re feeling, and his peace. (She wasn’t sure about that. She thought maybe it was just because we were nice people!)
I’m looking forward to the next time that I can have Miss “J” over to our home and love her, and continue to plant seeds into her heart. Every Thursday night when we have our prayer gathering we pray for Miss “J”.
Sometimes I’ll just stretch my hand out towards her house when I’m looking through the window blinds and pray for her.
Maybe you’ll join me in praying for Miss “J” as well?
 
I feel the Holy Spirit would have me to say to many of you
who are reading or listening to this and have been asking the Lord,
“What part can I do?
What can I do to change anything?
Everything is so dark and frightening
and I’m at my wits end!”
 
I CAN TELL YOU THIS!
There are people tonight who will lose their homes due to the mounting cost of living.
There are people tonight who have their children who will not talk to them, because they are Christians and the children despise their parents.
I can tell you tonight that there are many people who are weeping and crying, because they have no one to tell about how close they are to losing everything.
I can tell you in my life it’s become very tight on many levels. Being a pastoral counselor we keep our fees low so that we CAN help people, but when people are choosing between groceries and gasoline and a house payment that everything is skyrocketing in expense, the first thing they tend to do, is just stop coming for counseling. So, that drastically affects my way of living too!
 
Churches are feeling the pinch because people are not able to give as freely or as generously. This then shuts down opportunities and the opportunities of other to go and speak and minister in different places because the church needs to pay their utilities before they pay for a guest minister! Yes! I’m feeling it just like everybody else is!
 
IF you’re NOT feeling it.
If you have everything in a good place in your life and you have plenty of financial security, then be a blessing to someone who isn’t.
 
HELP OTHERS! PRAY FOR THEM!
Pray for those in your neighborhood who look worn down, those who have yards that perhaps are not as well tended to anymore because they’re working two and three jobs. You may even volunteer to mow their lawn just to show love and compassion!
 
BELIEVERS! DEAR ONES!
Let us not love merely in theory with words or with giving lip service to compassion, but in action and in truth, in practice and in sincerity, because practical acts of love are more than words.  - I John 3:18
 
One of the greatest things that we  can possibly ever do,
is to go and walk and pray for our neighbors, our cities,
our states, our nations.
 
GOD HAS CALLED US TO BE A PEOPLE OF PRAYER and I encourage you to go march around your city and speak against the strongholds that are trying to destroy your children’s education, destroy your freedoms, and to take away your ability to function!
THE LORD WANTS THE WALLS OF JERICHO
AROUND YOUR NATION TO COME DOWN,
BUT HE CALLS UPON HIS PEOPLE
TO OBEY HIM AND DO THAT KIND OF
LABOR OF LOVE BY PRAYING.
 
In fact, let’s pray right now!
Heavenly Father!
I come to you in the name of Jesus and I thank you Lord Jesus that prayer walking is a desire of your heart. Not only is it good for our spiritual health, but it’s also good for our heart muscle as we walk!
I thank you that you will use this message to stir people to realize that sitting around and just waiting for something to happen isn’t fruitful.
Lord as we get up and move, I ask that you help us to be discerning and open to the things of your spirit, and Lord if a manifestation takes place or an opportunity to pray for someone happens, help us to record it and write it down to remember the things that you have done!
Lord I am so grateful that someone recorded the story of the road to Emmaus when you walked with the two disciples. You were walking and talking and sharing with them, and out of that came the great amazement that they realized it was you speaking to them!
Father, I bless every person listening to me today, and I speak peace over their storm, in the name of Jesus.
I see that your word says no weapon that is being formed against them will utterly prosper against them, that you will come and rescue the desperate and the destitute, and the fearful.
Father break off any shame, or any sense of great humiliation for being in struggles or difficulty right now.
Break off the shame of being embarrassed because things are tight or uncomfortable financially for many Lord!
I ask that you show each individual that you are a loving God and that you provide even at the very last moment. Lord I ask that you would open up generosity in the hearts of people in your body to care for one another like they did in the book of Acts.
Train your people to be people of battle, train their feet to walk and to march in prayer and prepare us Lord Jesus for the harvest that will come across the globe.
We ask for your loving face and mercy to flow throughout our neighborhoods and we ask this because we love you Father.
I ask this in the mighty, glorious name, the name of Jesus Christ the Messiah, the Great Redeemer, Yeshua.
AMEN.

I would sure love to hear from some of you if you decide to go out and do some prayer walking and perhaps have some exciting events take place!

By Mary Lindow
In this podcast I will be speaking about an experience that I had which was completely unexpected, yet several consecutive things took place indicating a Word and warning from the Lord regarding our City. This happened in late August of 2019, right before the WuhanCovid19 biological disaster was unleashed, shortly after. This is a difficult message somewhat for me to deliver yet, it’s also a wonderful insight for us all during such volatile and darks days.
This podcast was unusually difficult to pull together, due to several events that simultaneously warred against us. Pipes broke in our home and we are still sorting out that situation with great difficulty. I was suddenly very ill with a kidney/bladder situation, (I’ve never had any problems previously,) and my husband was then in pain with a sudden kidney stone! We took this to prayer along with several others praying for and with us and have seen the Lord do the work of restoring our bodies. The pipes are still in a place of prayer and decisions about what to do. BUT! God sees it all and knows the answer!
Now! Lets get to the podcast! It’s an intense but import message from the Lord at this time.
 
OFTEN THE LORD WILL LET US SEE THINGS OR CATALOG THINGS, AND THEN HE WILL PUT THESE ALL TOGETHER AND SPEAK CLEARLY ABOUT WHY HE LET US SEE OR HEAR SOME OF THEM. It’s not always easy to communicate what the Lord shows you prophetically, but I’m going to give it my best and trust that the Holy Spirit will let you hear what you’re supposed to hear, and see what you’re supposed to see.
My husband, Steve, and I went to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science’s to see “The DaVinci Experience”. I had purchased surprise birthday tickets for Steve since his birthday is in late August. As we were driving around looking for a parking space, the lots were absolutely chaotic since the location of this event also had multiple huge displays and different events going on. We finally pulled into a space quite a distance away and hurriedly got out of the car and quickly headed towards the building that the presentation and creations that DaVinci had made, were being displayed. We had a specific time slot to be in line for or we would lose our entry to view the exhibit.
As we went in, we noticed that to the left a section there were all of the musical instruments and many copies of DaVinci’s paintings and amazing inventions that literally changed the world. On the right hand side, there were large, 20-foot graphics, and then reproductions of all of the machines of war that DaVinci drew and created. He was one of the first catapult engineers! As we read about his life, he was known to have extreme artistic talent and precision engineering types of abilities, but in order for him to finance his creative artistic gift, he also had to create weapons of destruction in order for the wealthy to support him.
We moved on further into a large room that had multiple multimedia cameras positioned on huge canvases, and we watched beautiful movement and saw his most amazing art creations, projected onto massive screens with gorgeous music accompanying these. As we moved out of that room and walked around and were looking at a few more items that were created by DaVinci, I looked up and on the wall there was a statement that DaVinci had made.
I didn’t quite know why at the time but I was impressed to take a picture of it.
Here is what the statement said.
There are three classes of people:
Those who see,
Those who see when they are shown,
Those who do not see.
 
Steve and I finished the exhibit and went out into the parking lot and as we were walking towards our car, I looked in front of our car and realized we had parked in front of a large, silver colored, aluminum light pole.
Right In The Middle Of That Pole In Front Of Our Car Someone Had Carefully Used Some Kind Of A Tool To Hammer A Perfect Indentation Of A Goblet Or What Some Might Call A Cup.
I pointed this out to Steve and I said, “Why would there be a cup right where that “pole is” where we are parked?”
Again, the Holy Spirit prompted me to take a picture of what I saw. So I did. Picture below. (As a side note, the last name of our extreme liberal governor is Pol-is).
We stopped to have a birthday meal and enjoyed ourselves and then began the trek back home on Interstate 25.
We reached a specific place on the highway where you’re up above on a higher curve that turns towards the north. To the left you can see the full Rocky Mountain Front Range. The traffic was at a standstill when we hit this section and it was bumper-to-bumper.
As we were sitting there, talking about the strangeness of the DaVinci art show, I happened to look out my window, which was on the right side of the car.
Directly To My Right Up In The Sky Was A Giant Hand-Shaped Cloud. It was stretched out, reaching out over the capital or pointing toward the Capital hill area of Denver. It was so clear and obvious that people were rolling down their windows and staring, and of course phones with cameras were snapping up the picture!
Again The Holy Spirit Said, “Take A Picture Of This”, And We Were Pretty Stunned To See Something So Extremely Clear In The Sky. Down in the corner of the picture when I got home and looked at it again, was a billboard sign that said, “plumbers wanted”.
 
Of course, at the time I had no idea how all three of these pictures were going to come together, but we don’t always know what the Holy Spirit is putting together in the moment when he is showing us things that he wants us to observe and pray about. .
 
FOR MONTH AFTER MONTH I WAS PRAYING AND TRYING TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE LORD WAS SAYING TO ME ABOUT ALL OF THESE THINGS HE HAD ME SEE. Meanwhile, the legislation in the state of Colorado and bills that were being passed by them were becoming more and more restrictive and excessively contentious, and diabolical in their approach.  
 
THEN, ONE DAY, AS I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT EVERYTHING AND PRAYING, THE PICTURES ALL CAME BACK TO MY MIND.
The Holy Spirit began to speak to me about the hand of God over our city, and I was immediately reminded of the picture of the hand that I had taken in the sky.
This hand was the right hand outstretched in the sky, towards the city of Denver, and it almost looked as if there was another hand below it reaching towards it, but it was more faint.
 
WHEN GOD’S HAND IS STRETCHED OUT OVER A CITY OR TOWARDS AN INDIVIDUAL, IT IS BECAUSE HE WANTS TO EITHER BLESS THE CITY, WARN THE CITY, OR JUDGE A CITY.
In the Book of Daniel chapter five there was the hand of God that wrote on the wall of a feast taking place.
Belshazzar, the son of King Nabonidus, began to co-reign over the Babylonian empire with his father starting in 553 B.C. He decides, in 539, to hold in Babylon a great feast for one thousand of his nobles (Daniel 5:1).
No expense is spared in carrying out the lavish banquet!
During the revelry Belshazzar, now drunk from wine, commands that the holy vessels Nebuchadnezzar took from Jerusalem's temple be brought to the festivities. He then proceeds to have himself and his honored guests drink from these gold and silver goblets. The party guests soon begin to use the vessels, in a contemptuous act against God, to celebrate and praise their own pagan deities! (Daniel 5:2 - 4)
 
THE MIRACULOUS HANDWRITING
As those at the massive banquet continue to indulge in drunkenness and idolatry, the fingers of a man's hand miraculously appear near one of the hall's walls. The supernatural manifestation then begins writing on a wall the now well-known words, "Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin" (Daniel 5:25).
BELSHAZZAR, WHILE HE IS WITNESSING GOD'S HANDWRITING, BECOMES TERRIFIED.
The fear welling up inside of him not only causes his face to turn pale but also his knees to knock together! His now weakened state causes him to fall to the ground (Daniel 5:5 - 6).
 
THIS WAS WORTHLESS AND VAIN
Pulling himself together, Belshazzar calls for his enchanters and astrologers to interpret the mysterious words. They, of course, prove to be worthless and unable to determine the meaning of the phrase on the wall. Following his wife's suggestion (Daniel 5:10 - 12), the king summons an old man named Daniel (likely in his 90's).
Daniel severely chastises the king for not reeling in his excessive pride and vanity, even though he knew God punished King Nebuchadnezzar’s pride. He then interprets the handwriting on the wall for the king.
 
A TRUE INTERPRETATION
The literal word for word translation of "Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin" in Daniel 5:25 is "numbered" "weighed" and "divided up or split". Daniel goes into detail and tells Belshazzar that "mene" means God has numbered his kingdom and will end it. The word "tekel" suggested this judgment was due to the king's character being found morally deficient or wanting.
 
BELSHAZZAR IS KILLED SEVERAL HOURS AFTER SEEING THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL. The Persians overrun the city of Babylon (Daniel 5:31). The once great empire receives its final crushing blow when later the same year Persia's Cyrus the Great is victorious at the battle of Opis in Mesopotamia.
 
THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD HAS SHOWN ME THAT THE MEANING OF THESE THINGS THAT I SAW AND DOCUMENTED IN PICTURES, the words on the wall in the DaVinci display, the cup or chalice that was hammered on the light pole in front of where our car was parked, and then, of course, seeing the hand in the sky, are three things that really address one thing.
 
REMEMBER The DaVinci statement was.
There are three classes of people:
Those who see,
Those who see when they are shown,
Those who do not see.
-Leonarde DaVinci
 
MANY PEOPLE ARE SEEING THAT GOD IS CALLING THEM INTO A DEEPER PLACE OF GENUINE PURITY, not a “religious” rigid, holiness, but a Divine holiness of love and faithfulness. It’s a choice to be obedient to God and these people see that God is asking them to walk a pure path with him.
They are hearing God speak in the difficult times that we are in and they are seeing him in a way they have not experienced before. These people are alive with the pursuit of the will of God for their lives and are in daily communication with God.
 
THE SECOND GROUP OF PEOPLE ARE THOSE WHO WILL “SEE WHEN THEY ARE SHOWN”.
These individuals walk in a very shallow faith and need to have facts and data that match their narrative, or match the way that “they” think. These are the people that we are to compel to seek God, to seek truth and to not seek the modern day constant “shifting of truths”, in order to convince people to follow a less then accurate way.
Individuals like this often doubt that there is only one way for salvation through Jesus Christ as the Savior and King. They dabble in light occult practices and in different forms of soul-driven “self care” practices, in order to please their flesh, as well as feed their need to be in control.
They walk in a very immature level of weak faith and often are distracted or led by emotions and feelings regarding decision-making. This is where deception easily creeps in and the louder voices of human reasoning, choke out the pure word of God.
 
THE THIRD GROUP OF PEOPLE ARE THOSE WHO DO NOT SEE.
They absolutely remain blinded. They remain stuck, and they choose to not believe the warnings around them.
In John 9:39 Jesus said,
“For judgment I have come into this world,
so that the blind will see
and those who see will become blind.”
 
AS I PONDERED THESE THINGS, and began thinking about the communion type looking cup or chalice on the light pole in front of our car, that was literally chiseled or hammered into the metal, no matter how much I tried to reason with myself that this didn’t mean anything, the Holy Spirit would not let up.
Then the Lord began to speak to me and said that this is the cup that our governor in Colorado has chosen to drink from.
I remembered my statement when I saw the cup chiseled into the light pole as we were standing there.  I vividly remember saying to my husband, “look at what is hammered onto where the pole is!” (Our governor’s name last name is Po-lis).
 
AND SO THE LORD BEGAN TO SPEAK ABOUT HIM TO ME, and, yes, we have prayed and prayed for him, and prayed that he would have his eyes opened, but in fact, he’s becoming more and more like the tyrant king Belshazzar in Daniel, who defied everything in order to build his kingdom. His lavish and wicked ways have multiplied evil and death in our state.
Many Governors and leaders are drinking from a cup of deception, sexual perversion, the murdering of children, and tyrannical law.
 
GOD’S HAND IS OUTSTRETCHED.
It was outstretched in the sky, pointing towards our state capital. God is saying to the state of corrupt Colorado, and of course, to many other states specifically that his hand is outstretched to those who will see and help, and who will obey the voice of God.
But for those that have to be shown, and for those who will not see, there is a cup to be drunk from that will be of utter sorrow and great destruction.
What amazed me about this outstretched hand in the sky was that people were at a dead stop on the highway and were all taking pictures.
Everyone knew it was a phenomenon and an unusually strange cloud! They knew it was something strange because they were taking pictures of it!
DOWN BELOW, IN THE RIGHT HAND CORNER OF THE PICTURE (as I was looking at again), you can see that there is an advertisement sign that was on the opposite side of the median.
It said.
“Now Hiring” - Plumber Service. Apply Within.
I was asking the Lord why that picture seemed to be significant because I was impressed to continue looking at it, and then he revealed to me why he wanted me to pay more attention to it.
Most all of us all know that plumbers come to do some very difficult work in our homes. One of the most messy and unpleasant jobs is when they have to bring in a rotor-rooter system that needs to unclog drainpipes in order for debris and sewage and water to be able to pass through freely.
 
THE LORD IMPRESSED ME WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT PRAYER AND INTERCESSION IS MUCH LIKE PLUMBING. Those devoted to prayer stay consistent and persistent as they push against the darkness, the blockages and the strongholds that “stop-up” and keep the free flow of the Spirit of God in their cities.
INTERCESSORS KNOW THAT THE CONSISTENT APPLICATION OF PRAYER IN SPECIFIC AREAS HAS TO BE DONE WITH THE INTENT OF FOCUSED AND PURPOSEFUL PRAYER.
 
COLORADO HAS MANY DEMONIC STRONGHOLDS, AND THE DARKNESS HAS ENCROACHED AND INCREASED.
Colorado’s governor signed into law that there can be no “conversion therapy” permitted by any counselor, licensed psychiatrists or licensed, registered or certified mental health providers, in the state of Colorado according to the Movement Advancement Project.
Read here: https://tinyurl.com/bdf4fs95
This basically means that anyone who would want to leave a homosexual lifestyle or any other kind of sexually deviant lifestyle attached to that, cannot be counseled, as to how to do that. It is called fantasy. It is called impossibility and, it is called illegal! Christians who believe the Bible opposes homosexuality should be given “the freedom to choose counseling and support that’s one with their goals," but that the current legal trend prevents parents from doing so. If you’re a parent and you have a 5-year-old boy who’s confused about his identity, in Colorado you can’t find a licensed counselor who will help him embrace his masculine identity, and that’s a travesty.
However, Colorado law does allow for “gender-affirming care,” such as hormone therapy, for minor children, with parental consent. But, youth can access mental health care without parental consent at age of 12, which means psychotherapy of any kind, including gender-affirming counseling, is available for children 12 and older. Some states, including California, want to prohibit such therapy/counseling for adults as well.
Governor Polis also urged individuals to lie to their family members and “privately” get one of the controversial COVID-19 vaccines while engaging in deception, to keep loved ones who may be against the vaccines from finding out.
His Direct Quote: 
“A spouse, a parent you live with who doesn’t want to get it, is against it… you can still privately get that vaccine without your parents or partner knowing, if that’s what keeps the harmony in the family and you are protecting yourself.” Source: https://tinyurl.com/yc7fe25b
UNDERSTAND, Colorado does not make exceptions for minors to receive the COVID-19 vaccine or any vaccine without parental permission. 
THIS IS WHERE THE CHURCH MUST TO COME INTO PLAY. Ministers who are men and women of God must be available to help break the darkness, break down the lies, break down the narratives by praying and being available to the Lord (like a plumber), to clear out this blockage that is causing great difficulty in the homes and lives around them, and the hearts of many believers.
They must preach the truth regarding sexually deviant practices and pushes to influence little children that are taking place in our world.
It must be done biblically and it must be done in love.
 
ANOTHER THING THAT THIS GOVERNOR HAS SIGNED OFF INTO LAW IS THAT A CHILD CAN BE ABORTED UP TO THE VERY DAY OF BIRTH. That means a full-term baby can be murdered within seconds of being born. This is a great evil in our land, and it is a great evil to sign into law in any state!
Read about it here:

AND SO, WE, THE INTERCESSORS OF GOD, MUST PRAY.
The part that stood out to me above all the others on the advertisement sign were the words “apply within”.
When we are intercessors for the Lord, when we are as human beings called by the Lord as believers to pray, and to do the work of intercession in prayer, to bring about a godly plumb line in our city, GOD IS LOOKING FOR THOSE THAT HE CAN “EMPLOY” or, "HIRE" TO GET THE JOB DONE. 
 
THE FATHER IS LOOKING FOR WORKERS
WHO ARE WILLING TO STAND IN THE GAP AND PRAY UNTIL CHANGE COMES.
But, it has to be applied within. Each of us has to apply that prayer to our own lives as well as seeking God, asking him to purify our hearts so that when we pray, our prayers are not hindered, and, so that the Lord hears them, from a pure heart.
We have to apply intercession “within first” so that the hand of God can move without the land.
 
WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD?
In ancient times, a person with a high or highest rank stood to the king's right side. Even today, a person may be called someone's "right hand man" or "wingman" when he or she serves as the closest person to another leader. An example of this can be found in Genesis 48:13-14 where Jacob blessed the child who would receive a greater blessing with his right hand. The right hand of God also relates to this concept of someone being right next to God, acknowledging both authority and closeness to Him.
 
WHILE GOD THE FATHER DOES NOT CONSIST OF A PHYSICAL BODY LIKE HUMANS DO, THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD IS OFTEN USED FIGURATIVELY IN SCRIPTURE. In the Old Testament, the phrase is used to refer to the coming Messiah. Psalm 110:1 predicts, "The LORD says to my Lord: 'Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool'" (also quoted in Matthew 22:44). Psalm 118:16 adds, "the right hand of the LORD exalts, the right hand of the LORD does valiantly!"
In the New Testament, we see expressions of this phrase in reference to Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:20-21 says, "…that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come."
Romans 8:34 teaches, "Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us."
 
THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD THEN, IS A REFERENCE TO BOTH A PLACE OF CLOSENESS TO GOD THE FATHER AND A POSITION OF POWER ABOVE ALL OTHER POWERS. That means that Jesus has power over any and all earthly governors operating in evil powers. Jesus the Messiah exists at the right hand of God today, perfectly reigning with God the Father and God the Spirit in community and power.
THE HAND OF GOD HAS BEEN EXTENDED, LETTING US KNOW THAT HE IS CALLING AND POINTING OUT AS A SIGN THAT HE IS LOOKING FOR INTERCESSORS. He wants to have a plumb line that is straight and in order, and, he wants his people to believe and trust in him, without having to be shown every little step of the way. He’s looking for those that will “see and believe” without having to be shown. This is where the crux of our faith comes into play.
 
WHEN IT IS SO DIFFICULT AND SO DARK, AND IT SEEMS AS IF NOTHING IS CHANGING, AND NOTHING IS MOVING, RESOURCES ARE TIGHT, PRESSURES WITHIN AND PRESSURES WITHOUT ARE PUSHING IN ON US, THIS IS WHEN THE LORD POINTS TO THE PLACE WE NEED TO BE.
 
That place is looking within our own hearts to allow him to do the work through prayer and intercession that needs to be done. We need to apply it “within”.
If you’re looking for a sign from the Lord, and you’ve been seeking him, your sign is exactly like the actual billboard sign that I saw! He is looking for you to become a person that decides to hunker down in authentic times of prayer and intercession, and apply it within, your own life.
 
AS I SHARED THESE THINGS WITH MY HUSBAND STEVE THAT I SAW AND PONDERED AND WRESTLED OVER FOR MONTHS, WE BOTH CONTINUED TO PONDER AND THOUGHT ABOUT THEM OFTEN, AND PRAYED.
One morning a few weeks later Steve, just as he was waking up, (the Lord often shows or speaks things to Steve just as he is waking up in the morning), he heard the Lord speak to him, and he was addressing our Governor.
Here is what the Lord said.
“You have been found wanting, your breath will be taken from you”.
NOW, PLEASE UNDERSTAND! WE DO NOT WISH ANY EVIL OR HARM TO COME UP ON ANYONE!
But, just as Belshazzar chose to drink from the golden and silver goblets that were to be used only for holy purposes, our governor has chosen to use the vessels God has called holy which are infants, children, and justice, and abuses them by drinking from the cup of the murderous Genocide of infants, sexual deviancy, and tyranny.
He refuses to be shown the way of the Lord, and he refuses to honor truth. He refuses to see. He wants to murder more infants and control medical care for children.
And so the Lord speaks about his right hand of judgment and literally had a right hand form in the sky above Denver, reaching towards the Colorado State Capital.
Exodus 15:6 says,
“Your right hand, O LORD, glorious in power,
Your right hand, O LORD shatters the enemy.”
 
ALL ACROSS OUR LAND, THERE ARE LEADERS
WHO HAVE BECOME DRIVEN BY DEMONIC FORCES,
AND BY THEIR OWN PRIDE AND ARROGANCE AND WEALTH.
 
They choose to ignore the voice of God, and they refuse to see the warnings that he has continuously brought to our land. When we ask God to move his hand, we must ask with the intent of the Lord saving the wicked from his own demise. And yet we know that there will be those who will not see.
WHEN SCRIPTURE USES THE IMAGE OF GOD’S RIGHT HAND, IT IS MEANT TO BE A PICTURE OF THE PINNACLE OF STRENGTH AND ABILITY. In passages that specify God’s right hand, his strength is a key focus.
One of my favorite verses is the following.
“Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the saving strength of His right hand.
Some boast in chariots and some in horses,
But we will boast in the name of the Lord, our God.” (Psalm 20:6-7)
 
The Right Hand of God is outstretched for his people for Protection and Salvation
Psalms 44:3 says:
“For by their own sword they did not possess the land, and their own arm did not save them, but your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your presence, for You favored them.”
And Psalms 17:7 says
“Wondrously show Your loving-kindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand  from those who rise up against them.
 
THIS LAST VERSE I SHARE IS PACKED WITH SUCH BEAUTIFUL TRUTH.
I believe it is exactly what many of you need to hear right now.
Psalms 18:35 Says
“You have also given me the shield of your salvation, 

And your right hand upholds and sustains me; 

Your gentleness [Your gracious response when I pray]
makes me great.”
 
MY FRIENDS, IT IS IN GENTLENESS AND INTERCESSION THAT MAKES US GREAT.Great in the eyes of God, because we choose to move and flow in, HIS image. Yes, judgment will come, and God will move with fierce and complete fire when he brings justice. But, he is long-suffering, and he waits patiently and gives many opportunities for hearts to change.
Jesus is still praying and interceding right now in this moment for us, and intercedes for the world. But, he does bring warnings, and just as he wrote on the wall, God is beginning to point his finger to things in each of our cities, and he is going to bring justice and judgment as well.
 
WE CAN SHAKE OUR FISTS ALL THAT WE WANT AT THE EVIL PEOPLE AROUND USand make poignant posts on social media that we hope others will read and be motivated by. But in the end, the greatest force and the greatest power and the greatest kindness and grace that we could possibly ever operate in is, when we become those who choose to pray.
 
WE BECOME PLUMBERS BY USING THE PLUMB-LINE OF PRAYER
TO PUSH OUT THE UNCLEAN AND THE UNHOLY,
SO THAT THE FRESH CLEAN FLOW OF THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN ONCE AGAIN
BRING TIMES OF REFRESHING AND PURITY TO THE BODY OF CHRIST,
AND THEN TO OUR CITIES.
 
THE LORD IS GOING TO BEGIN TO SHOW MORE SIGNS AND WONDERS JUST LIKE THE HAND IN THE SKY THAT HE FORMED OVER THE CITY OF DENVER.
I’m going to share in my next podcast about yet another supernatural event I had when I began to prayer walk during the time of COVID-19 lockdowns. I had a very supernatural event take place and now in retrospect, realizing exactly what the Holy Spirit had me do and say, has driven me to a place of understanding that when we are yielded in God to prayer, and yielded to allowing the Holy Spirit to pray through us, he will speak things and show us things that only God can do.
I ENCOURAGE YOU TO BECOME MORE TENDER HEARTED AND CAST AWAY BITTERNESS AND HATRED AND DESPAIR. Ask the Lord to drive you into a place of greater Intercession, because his hand is reaching out over your city and is reaching out over your leaders, but it is also pointing towards the signs that tell us we are to become people of Intercession and apply that prayer within our own lives, in order to see God move in a mighty way.
 
HE IS ABSOLUTELY HOLDING US!
Isaiah 41:10 tells us,
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you, and
I will uphold you with my righteous
Right hand.
 
IN CONCLUSION
There are many seasons in life.  Proverbs tells us there is a time for every purpose under heaven.  Beloved, I believe it is time to draw near to God, to prepare our hearts for His presence. 
There simply is no substitute for the presence of God!
David was a king. His life was filled with many responsibilities and he was clearly very passionate about many things.  Yet he wrote, "When You said, 'Seek My face,' my heart said to You, “You, O LORD, I will seek' " (Ps 27:8).
 
IF THE HOLY SPIRIT WERE TO WHISPER TO YOUR HEART THAT HE WANTS MORE OF YOUR TIME, WHEN THE LORD SAYS, "SEEK MY FACE," WHAT DO YOU SAY? 
Oh beloved, here is the true battle for your soul!
Your victory is not in getting more data and information about the evil days and treacherous news cycles, but in your answer to the Lord's call. 
The result of seeking God is that He guides us into an absolutely fearless life. (see Psalm 27:1-4).  David says, "For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock." (Ps 27:5).
 
TODAY, WITH SO MANY DISTRACTIONS, WHAT PLACE DOES THE LORD HAVE IN YOUR LIFE?  If He called you to deepen your walk, to seek His face, how would you respond?  When He says, "Seek My face," what does your heart say to Him?
I love Paul’s instruction in prayer that he gave to Timothy in 1st Timothy 2:-1-3
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way” because “This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior.”
 
PLEASE. PLEASE!  JOIN ME RIGHT NOW IN THIS MOMENT OF INTERCESSION
AS I PRAY FOR MY CITY, YOUR CITY, ALL CITES.
 
Father, turn our cities from the power of darkness to light, open their eyes that they might receive forgiveness of sins.
We pray for our cities LORD. 

So much turmoil is affecting so many. 

Help us reprioritize in these desperate times. 

Teach us to number our days.
 
Give us love for You and one another. 
 Give us wisdom and discernment.

Forgive us. Renew us.
 
We pray against the evil schemes of the enemy.
He is a liar and a murder. From the beginning, he was so. 

Help us resist His temptations.
 
Preserve our lives, LORD. 
Help us have peace in the middle of the storm! 

Strengthen our faith and love. 
Give us hearts full of thanksgiving.
 
We depend on You.
We do not put our hope in medicine, Policy, leadership or human might, but in the Lord of Hosts, the Holy One of Israel.
 
Be with every honest and godly leader and minister Lord.
Keep their eyes on truth, and Frustrate evil at every turn.
In the Name Christ Jesus our King, we pray, Amen!

By Mary Lindow
 
Hello to all of you who are listening via podcast today or who are reading this message!
I just finished being a part of our weekly prayer gathering this evening, and I have to tell you, the presence of the Father was so absolutely strong and evident in our time together! I am literally to the point that I anticipate all day long on Thursday evenings, getting together with the group that we pray with. I practically run to the family room and get things prepared, and get in position so that when everyone arrives we can just get right at it!
We have been blessed week after week, month after month with the sweet and strong presence of God as we intercede for our nation, for the globe, and for so many other things that the Lord lays on our hearts to pray about.
 
I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THE PODCAST THAT I HAD TALKED ABOUT EARLIER, REGARDING A SUPERNATURAL EVENT THAT TOOK PLACE IN AUGUST 2019. I am still trying to get it to compile and come together and I know that if I rush this, I will not share it in the light of how the Lord wants it to be presented properly.
 
BUT, I HAVE BEEN HAVING ANOTHER MESSAGE AND WORD FROM THE LORD STIRRING DEEP WITHIN MY SPIRIT, AND SO THAT IS WHAT I’M GOING TO SHARE WITH YOU TODAY.
Hearing God accurately in the mess and chaos that the world is in right now, is of huge importance!
I would first like to welcome all of our brothers and sisters listening in Sri Lanka, as well as our brothers and sisters in Latvia. May the Lord continue to use you all to proclaim and speak truth, no matter what the cost. It is so worth being called a servant of the Lord during hard and challenging times.
 
TODAY, I’M GOING TO TALK WITH YOU ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS TO BE IN A PLACE OF SAFETY, A PLACE, OR A “HAVEN” OF BEING SHELTERED BY THE LORD. Especially during very, very difficult and hard times.
I’ll share how to discern and hear His voice in the chaos of the nonstop noise the dark world bombards us all with. It’s ratcheted up to crazy levels, and shouts loudly to attempt to distract us from discerning the times, and hopes to discourage us and knock us off balance with fear, and then rob our peace.
 
IT’S OBVIOUS THAT THE EARTH IS IN ONE MASSIVE UPHEAVAL, AND NO MATTER WHERE YOU TURN RIGHT NOW, THE CRISES CONTINUE TO MOUNT AND BOIL! And so, people begin to put aside spending time in the word of God, and certainly in his presence, to spend time with the love of the Internet and scrolling through their telephones through social network information and high charged doomsday podcasts and videos.
This can absolutely create stress and anxiety, and it also creates a terrible problem with comparing ourselves to other people and where we are at in life.
PRAYER IS NOT A BORING HARD THING WHEN YOU REALIZE
THAT YOU ARE FACE-TO-FACE, OR LITERALLY,
“PRESENCE TO PRESENCE” WITH THE FATHER.
 
A tremendous man who walked daily in the Presence of God, Andrew Murray, said in a book that he wrote, 
“It’s one of the terrible marks of the diseased state of the Christian life in these days that there are so many that are content, and remain passive and content, without the distinct occasion of having experienced answered prayer. They pray daily, but know very little of direct, definite answers to prayer as the rule of their daily life.”
Psalm Thirty verse four says, “I sought the Lord and he answered me.”
We must understand that it’s the Father’s will that WE SEEK HIM OUT to daily have dialogue with his will, and it’s his will to have his children to listen to him and then, he listens to his children and agrees to their requests.
It’s his will that we should come to him day by day, with specific requests, and he will every day, do for us great and wonderful things!
What we ask sometimes might be a case where the specific answer is that he refuses our request, but our Father lets us know when and why he can’t give us what we request. It’s like his Son Jesus, and so we will withdraw our petition or our request.
When did Jesus do that?
Jesus said in the Garden of Gethsemane, “If this cup could pass from me, but not my will, but your will be done.”  He said this to the Father.
 
WHETHER OUR REQUEST IS ACCORDING TO GOD’S WILL OR NOT, GOD WILL BY HIS WORD AND BY HIS SPIRIT, TEACH THOSE OF US WHO ARE TEACHABLE, and he will give us time to withdraw our requests if they’re not according to God‘s mind or purposes.
 
LET’S PRESS IN.
LET’S JUST STAND FIRM UNTIL THE ANSWER COMES! PRAYER IS GIVEN TO US TO OBTAIN AN ANSWER!
It’s in prayer and its answer, that the exchange of love between the Father and we his children takes place.
MY QUESTION IS, “ARE YOUR PRAYERS BEING ANSWERED?”
 
During the last hours of the age that we’re in, there will be two opposing groups or alliances in the world. 
The First group are those whose hearts are absolutely overwrought with bitterness, resentment and hatred.
The Second group is those whose love has actually increased, and are experiencing the power of the Kingdom of God, now!
Jesus told us about this in Matthew in chapter 4:10-13.
He said, “At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 
Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.”
And then in Matthew 24:14 he added,
“This gospel (good news) of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations and then the end shall come.”
 
SO, THE BIG QUESTION IS...
...“WHAT IS THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM?” 
It’s the whole truth Jesus came to bring, not only that part that saves us from our sins, but also that part which creates us in his image!
It’s the full message, the full good news with all its requirements and all of its rewards!
It’s is the full price for the full power!
It’s the most glorious pearl that a person can possess. The presence of God in His glory, revealed, made known within and among us!
 
IF WE WANT TO GAIN THIS GREAT LOVE, WE WILL CONTINUALLY BE FORCED TO MAKE CHOICES TOWARD MERCY, OR, TOWARD UNFORGIVENESS, and if we don’t walk in a forgiving attitude, we will certainly become prey to an embittered spirit, if it’s in fact, God‘s plan to allow wickedness and holiness at the same time,  so they grow to full maturity.
We must guard our hearts ahead of time from reacting in bitterness or unforgiveness because the increasing anarchy will certainly give us occasions to lose love, with the attempt to make us hard so we can survive in this cruel world.
 
WE OFTEN WITHDRAW FROM THE GENUINENESS OF PURE LOVE! We can’t choose cautious, selective love, and also walk in the power of God’s kingdom, my friends! To defy pain, we sometimes unconsciously shut down our love, because after all, its love that makes us vulnerable.
 
GOD WANTS US TO BE A PEOPLE WHOSE LOVE IS GROWING HOT, NOT COLD. Jesus didn’t say that we had to trust our enemies, but he did say that we had to love them anyhow. You might be asking why!
One reason God allows difficulties is to test us!
I know! I know! We don’t want to hear that!
He wants to see if our Christianity is just an intellectual pursuit or just thoughts and feelings of the mind, or if following him is truly the highest passion of our hearts. So, he tells us in Matthew 5:44, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Wow!
 
SOME OF YOU HAVE GONE THROUGH REJECTION AND BETRAYAL MOST LIKELY.
The Lord says to you today,
“You did not fail, you have continued to love, and although you went through great pain, yet you have forgiven, those who have hurt you.”
My friends you have passed the test.
 
THERE ARE HOWEVER, SOME OF YOU LISTENING OR READING THAT STILL HAVE CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS IN YOUR LIVES THAT YOU HAVE NOT FORGIVEN, AND WHOM YOU DO NOT LOVE.  Maybe you’re right, they don’t deserve your forgiveness, but what you don’t realize is the consequence of your anger.
You see, as long as we refuse to forgive, a part of this is trapped in the past where you will always be reminded of your pain, and until we forgive, we will not be fully released to go on with our life.
Even the time of year in which you were hurt will bring depression.
 
THERE’S ONLY ONE WAY WE CAN HAVE TRUE FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD AND THAT IS IN THE HERE AND NOW, RIGHT NOW, LIVING IN THE PRESENT. But if our mind is in conflict with others, we’re neither here nor in the present. When we live in the past, we are cut off from God! What people did to us to hurt us is over! It’s done; it doesn’t have any real existence or life of its own, except in your mind.
 
SO THERE WITHIN US, THE DEED CONTINUES TO LIVE AND FESTER AND AS LONG AS IT LIVES, WE’RE STILL BEING HURT BY IT. The person or the people who wounded you may have long since died. They can’t be blamed because it’s us who keeps our wounds alive. Not only is the quality of our spiritual life affected, but often our physical health pays a price as well!
As long as we keep holding onto the burden of what someone has done to us, every time we think about it or think about that person, the stomach acids start to churn and anxiety increases, and then of course our body is continually put under stress.
If we don’t forgive those who have hurt us, we lose a measure of our capacity to love and whether they deserve forgiveness or not, we deserve a better life!
God wants to give you a better life but you can’t enjoy abundant life and carry unforgiveness, because we’re shackled to something that was hurting us.
Did you know that our own unforgiveness tortures us?
 
SO HOW DO YOU GET OUT OF THAT PRISON?
HOW DO YOU FIND THE PROTECTION OF GOD FOR YOUR SOUL?
 
Well, God calls us to forgive. You have to see the hands of God reaching to you in the midst of your pain.
He wants to redeem that conflict using that specific crisis or hardship to develop and perfect character in you. It will be this experience that he will use to make you like Jesus. To become like Jesus is to dwell, to live, in the place of rest and the safety of God.
Every time we say, “Father, I choose to love. I choose to forgive. I choose to forget and not hold it against this person”, we are taking on the nature of Jesus. Friends, rejoice that Jesus is taking over your heart. You are entering into the strong, safe haven of God’s shelter.
 
I DO MANY THINGS THAT THE LORD HAS ASSIGNED ME TO DO IN LIFE NOT ONLY AS A MINISTER, BUT ALSO AS A PASTORAL COUNSELOR.
I also host and facilitate a group called “The international Prophetic Women’s Mentoring Council.” This is a group of women from all walks of life several cultural groups and different backgrounds. We meet through zoom video sessions and individually.
The thing that is “the glue that bonds us” is the fact that each of us have been called into ministry, and each of these women flows in a different expression of the prophetic gift.
This past week we had a zoom session and our conversation and subject matter was regarding, the power of intercession and what it takes to approach the Face of God, in a right attitude.
One of the things that stood out so strongly in our time of dialogue and accountability to one another was the fact that in order to hear clearly from the Spirit of God, we need to have the inward witness, or the “inside part of us that communicates with God”, clearly in a place of submission and humility before him, and, that we first come into a place where we have asked the Lord to cleanse us. That means cleanse our hearts before we try to come to Him in prayer.
 
MANY PEOPLE DON’T KNOW HOW TO HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD. They seek it through quick daily devotionals, or they seek the voice of God through other people every day, instead of seeking the Lord himself.
The scripture tells us clearly in John 10:4-5, “His sheep know his voice, and strange voices, they will not follow.”
 
SO WHAT ARE THE STRANGE VOICES?
The voices from the external world that are constantly pumping us full of data, fear, rhetoric and forced compliance to social conditioning. If we choose to listen to the voice of strangers, then we move further away from being sheep in the pasture of the Lord.
 
SO HOW DO WE KNOW HIS VOICE?
How do we discern that it’s him? The number one thing, is that God always speaks life. He always speaks truth. And when God speaks, it brings peace, even in the midst of hard difficulties or hard decisions. An absolute solid peace comes and says, “This is the way, and this is what you have to do!”
Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say,
"This is the way you should go,” whether to the right or to the left.
That’s Isaiah 30:21.
 
THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVES IN YOU.
God absolutely wants to direct your life through your decision-making. The Holy Spirit guides us in our spirits (not through our physical body). The Number One way The Holy Spirit leads and guides us is through what the Bible calls, the “Inward Witness.”
Proverbs 3:6 says,  “Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”
 
WHAT IS AN INNER OR INWARD WITNESS?
An inner witness is an impression, or a sense or perception on the inside of you.
Romans 8:16 tells us,
“For his Spirit joins with our spirit, to affirm, to confirm, that we are God’s children.”


Jeremiah 7:23-24 says this to us, 
“But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you shall walk entirely in the way which I command you, so that it may go well for you.’ 
Yet, they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked by their own advice and in the stubbornness of their evil hearts, and they went backward and not forward.
 
AS KINGDOM PEOPLE, WE’RE NOT LED BY OUR SENSES.
We’re not led by our ears or our eyes. We’re led by our spirit.
When we talk about hearing God, we’re not talking about hearing God with our physical ears. We’re talking about hearing Him in our spirit. 
Here’s a great example:
The Apostle Paul had been arrested and he was headed to his trial. Before he took the journey he sensed something in his spirit. He wasn’t the captain of the ship, but he sensed something in his spirit. 
In Acts 27:10, Apostle Paul said,
"Men, I perceive we're going to face a disaster and heavy losses on this voyage. This disaster will cause damage to the cargo and the ship, and it will affect our lives."
It wasn’t long before the ship hit a cyclone, but an angel appeared and guaranteed Paul that everyone would make it, and they did!
What was it that what Paul said in the beginning? “I perceive".  
This is what we’re looking at right now.
We’re talking about being led by the Spirit of God, no matter what circumstance or difficulty we might encounter.
 
BEING A PERSON WHO IS CALLED TO A PROPHETIC MINISTRY, I AM CLEARLY AWARE OF THE FACT THAT 90% OF WHAT I DO, ALSO COMES FROM TEACHING PEOPLE FROM THE WORD OF GOD REGARDING HOW TO  “HEAR” THE VOICE OF GOD.
 
My job is not to be a telephone for people to connect to God with, nor simply through prophesying. This is not going to change lives long term if the word of God is not taught and also if people don’t act on it and obey it.
 
I HAVE HAD SOME STRANGE ENCOUNTERS WITH PEOPLE WHO THINK THAT I HAVE SOME KIND OF HOTLINE OR SATELLITE CONNECTION TO GOD TO HELP THEM GET ANSWERS. They need something or want to hear what the Lord has for them by asking me for a prophetic word. My friends this is not how the prophetic word of knowledge or word of wisdom works!
I had a lady when we were Pastoring a local fellowship come up to me after the service and she asked me if I would please, “do whatever I do, do that thing that I do”, and see if God would show me where she had put her wedding ring. She had lost it.
I remember feeling very uncomfortable and a cold chill went through my body! My thought process was, “this woman wants me to be like a palm reader, or a magic eight ball! She wants me to use divination to find her wedding ring!“
Very kindly but firmly I told the woman, “You can ask the Lord to show you where it is yourself, or just simply go on looking for it. Pray that the Lord would lead you to it, but to ask me to ask the Holy Spirit to show me where it is, is basically trying to use another voice to speak to God for you when you can speak on your own to him.”
 
THERE ARE TIMES, WHEN GOD WILL SPEAK A WORD, AND IT IS DONE THROUGH A PROPHETIC UTTERANCE, and it gives us a word of knowledge about something or a word of wisdom about a specific event where we need to have insight, but it will always confirm with the Spirit of God what he has already put down on the inside of us that we can’t seem to quite untangle, until the prophetic word comes and brings a clarity to it.
 
SOMETIMES THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL HAVE SOMEONE BRING A PROPHETIC WORD THAT COMES IN THE FORM OF LOVING CORRECTION, BUT IT IS STILL CORRECTION, AND PEOPLE GET ANGRY AND SHOUT, “HOW DARE YOU JUDGE ME! Who are you to judge me?!” 
Of course what this is a reaction to being caught out in bad behavior or hidden sin, and the Lord gently, lovingly, brings a word of warning.
 
ALL OF US KNOW WHEN WE SLIP AWAY FROM SPENDING TIME IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD. We know when we slack off from reading the scripture and from meditating on it, letting the Holy Spirit speak through the word to us. This is where the areas of bitterness and lack of purity in our walk with the Lord get all tangled up.
 
FRIENDS.
ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO TEACH YOU HOW TO BE LED BY HIM.
(By the way, you might need a refreshing of your commitment to only follow his voice.)
You don’t need a prophet to hear from God for you, or have a constant prophetic word to make decisions.
Simply say these words.
“Holy Spirit, teach me how to be led by you.” 


Then, before you make any major decisions, acknowledge God.
Say, “God, this is what the situation is,  >  insert your situation

The World Is Whirling In Many Storms Right Now!
It’s Crazy Out There, And Dark!
And yet, we all have those things that we are personally raging war against as well.
Maybe You’re In A Storm Right Now.
Maybe it’s a storm named divorce.
Maybe it’s a storm called money, or loss of a career.
Maybe it’s friendship. Maybe loneliness.
Maybe grief or addictions. Kids, in-laws, friends.
Maybe it’s a storm called cancer.
 
Sometimes We Wonder Where Is God In The Midst Of Our Struggles.
Why is God allowing this to happen? We usually don’t understand, (even if we’re the culprit, it still doesn’t seem fair or right.) Yet God is there. His name “Immanuel” means, God WITH us.
In Matthew: 1:23 it says,
“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call His name Immanuel” (which means, God with us.”
That’s our theme.
It’s really believing and trusting that God is with us.
With that in mind, I want to look at a passage from Acts 27.
 
As Paul Was Being Transported To Rome,
The Focus Was On A Storm On The Ship Paul Was On.
 
There was this massive storm at sea. The storm went on and on and on.
The crew was so terrified that they threw cargo overboard, believing they were about to die.
In Acts 27:20, Luke tells us;
“When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days,
and no small tempest lay on us,
all hope of our being saved was at last abandoned.”
 
When We Read, No Small Tempest Lay On Us;
Luke Is Telling Us This Was A Massive, Raging Storm!
It wasn’t just a rainstorm, the wind was blowing, the skies were dark day and night; they couldn’t even see the sky.
The storm was raging, and I wonder how many of us would use that phrase for what we’ve been going through?
The storm - won’t - stop.
 
Do you see the end of that verse?
It said, “All hope of being saved was abandoned”.
They gave up all hope of being saved! That’s terrible!
 
Have You Been There? Have You Given Up All Hope?
It’s the finances that are killing you and you see no hope.
Maybe there’s a wedge between you and your spouse and you can’t see any hope.
Maybe it was the diagnosis.
Maybe you can’t see yourself with a mate.
Maybe it’s a job, it’s the kids, it’s getting older and more dependent.
Whatever it is . . . and just like those sailors, you’ve given up all hope!
 
The storm continues to rage and in verse 21 we read,
“Since they had been without food for a long time,
Paul stood up among them and said,
“Men, you should have listened to me and not have set sail from Crete
and incurred this injury and loss.”
 
I love Paul!
But right here, I don’t think I would want to hear what he said!
Kind of an “I told you so!”
“You should have taken my advice. You wouldn’t have lost all of this property.
If you had just listened to my advice, you wouldn't be in the middle of this storm.
 
Why Were They In The Storm?
They were in the storm because it was their fault.
They made a decision to go out when it’s not the best time to sail.
It was risky from the start.
Spiritual warfare is real and sometimes, yes, it is Satan.
But this situation was on them; they couldn’t blame Satan as much as they may have wanted to.
 
We Don’t Like To Admit It, But Sometimes It's Our Own Fault.
Sometimes you over-indulged and you spent too much money, or you said something you shouldn’t have said and now you’re in the middle of the storm.
You procrastinated and now you’re paying for it.
You said yes, when you knew you should have said no!
You dated someone everyone said not to date, and now there’s lots of hurt and you’re in the middle of the storm and you can’t blame anyone else.
 
Maybe That's Why They Gave Up Hope - - - They Knew It Was Their Fault.
I think we may find it easier to believe God can get us out of a storm He called us to, than it is for God to get me out of a storm we created.
Does that make sense?
 
Maybe It’s The Captain’s Fault.
You’re just a sailor and you didn’t have a say in it. You heard Paul, but you believed the captain and now through no fault of your own, you’re in the middle of the storm.
 
Have You Have Ever Been In The Middle Of A Storm And It Wasn't Your Fault?
Your parents divorced and you thought it was about you.
The company made poor business decisions, which impacted you.
Someone gave you their word and you believed them.
Whatever it was, you were the victim.
You’re in the middle of the storm and you’re giving up hope!
Now, Paul says in verse 22 - -
“Yet now I urge you to take heart,
 for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship.”
 
Literally, Paul is calling them to have a positive spirit, to have good courage.
He is reassuring them there will be no loss of life.
 
How Many Of Us Need To Hear That?
Be Of Good Courage.
That’s a theme throughout the Bible. Remember what God told Joshua in chapter 1 verse 9;
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous!
Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed,
for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
 
Be of good courage! Be courageous.
Don’t be afraid. Don’t be discouraged.
Don’t be defeated. Don’t give up hope!
WHY?
 
Because the Lord your God is with you wherever you go!
That’s news we need to hold onto! It’s great news when we’re giving up hope!!
 
Then in verse 23 Paul said - - -
“For this very night there stood before me an angel of the God
to whom I belong and whom I worship.”
 
Talk About A Powerful Statement From Paul!
You're in the boat in a raging storm and an angel stands beside you! I wonder what some were thinking.
 
I Truly Believe There Are Angels All Around Us.
There are angels where you are right now ministering to you.
I really do believe that. I believe the spiritual world, when we get there some day, is going to totally blow us away with what’s going on.
 
Imagine That You're In The Middle Of A Storm And The Presence Of God Is With You In This Moment. You have no idea all the different ways God is with you. He could be with you as an angel. His Spirit is with you. Jesus is with you! God is not bound by time; He’s with you yesterday, today and forever. He is listening to your prayers. He’s interceding on your behalf to the Father!
 
We Have No Idea How God Is With Us At All Times, Even In The Storms.
It’s what Paul told Timothy - - -
“At my first defense no one came to stand by me, but all deserted me,
But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me.” - 2 Timothy 4
 
Isn’t that great? The Lord stood by me and strengthened me.
The Lord didn’t leave me; the Lord didn’t fail me nor forsake me.
He’s with me, at my side, and He is with you at your side, and He's giving you strength.
 
NEVER LET THE PRESENCE OF A STORM
CAUSE YOU TO DOUBT THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
 
Following Jesus doesn't mean bad days won't happen.
That's bad theology to think that it does.
Jesus said that in John 16:33,
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
 
You will have trouble, but Jesus promises us He will be with us and on top of that, He has overcome the world.
That means Jesus is the victor!
We have our victory in Jesus.
 
We Can't Control What People Do To Us.
But, we can control what we believe and where we put our faith, put our trust. 
My faith is in the One who created the wind and the waves. I have faith in God that what He says will come to pass. What He says will happen - - - will happen.
 
Who Is God?
In Psalm 46:1-3, the psalmist tells us,
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
(That means right now!)
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.”
 
Don’t You Love That?
In the midst of our storms, God is our hiding place.
He is our refuge and our strength.
He is always ready, willing and able to help us in times of trouble.
 
Why? Because He is with us.
 
Who is He?
He is Immanuel.
He is God with us.
Because He is with us, we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken, (it’s sure shaking right now!) and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, even though the seas roar and rage, and the mountains tremble.
If we lose our job, if the relationship falls apart, if the economy gets shaky,
I still will not be afraid.
Why? Because He is with me.
Because He will never leave us. Because He will never forsake us.
Because He is what we need.
Because He is our safety. He is our strength. He is our comforter.
He is our redeemer. He is our righteousness. He is our friend.
Because He is a rock. He is the living bread, the bread of life.
He is the living water that satisfies our souls.
He is the gate through which we can enter.
He is the good shepherd.
He is our comforter and peace.
 
PEACE IS NOT FOUND IN THE ABSENCE OF A STORM.
PEACE IS FOUND IN THE PRESENCE OF JESUS, AND HE IS WITH US.
 
That’s why you never let the presence of a storm cause you to doubt the presence of God.
True peace is not found in the absence of trials and storms.
That's a part of life.
 
True peace is found in the Presence of Immanuel.
God WITH us.
 
Let’s pray,
Heavenly Father, we see the world in turmoil, we see the storms on the horizon. Wherever we turn, it seems as if darkness is attempting to encroach and suffocate the goodness in the earth.
But Lord, you have people filled with your Spirit, you have your own set apart and called and planned for this very storm and time.
Lord, those that are listening to me, many of them like myself are asking questions like, “what more can I do”?
It seems as a governmental policies are thrown aside and treachery wins the day. It seems as if there are family members who refuse to speak to one another because of either different political views, or they’ve been forced into doing things that they didn’t want to do and they said “no”. Father we know all these things are being heard from you in our prayers and we ask that you help us to be like Paul, that we wait upon the strengthening of your angels that come around us.  You yourself were sent a strengthening angel in the garden of Gethsemane that ministered to you so that you could fulfill the ultimate call upon your life, to spare us from damnation and a place of great darkness for eternity.
Teach us your way oh God!
Teach us to trust you with all of our heart.  
Those places that have become weak or frightened, or perhaps presumptuous, Father, we want to be on an equal plain of humility before your throne, that you can call upon us, call us up at any time, that we might stand and face the storm in the courage of knowing that every place in which our foot has tread, you have given it to us.
We will be strong and courageous, and we will not be afraid.
We thank you Jesus so much for being there, we thank you, Father for the presence of your Holy Spirit. We can lift our hands and close our eyes and lift our hands and begin to call upon your name, and peace falls on us, and that thick Presence, knowing that you are in the midst of us. The world does not have that! The wicked never taste that kind of full belonging and peace, and we thank you for it.
Father I ask those that are listening today, if there’s anyone who’s afraid, if there’s anyone going through a really hard thing, Father I ask that your Presence would reassure them, that your grace your mercy would overshadow them right now and carry them to the place they need to be whatever it would be Father, relationships, finances, harm in family situations, physical abuse, perhaps a difficult medical diagnoses. I would ask that you would show them, let them know beyond any doubt there you are there and that you are not leaving them, that you will get them though the storm. 
Thank you Father for hearing my prayer in Jesus' loving, mighty and glorious name.
 
I Hope You Enjoyed Today’s Podcast!  I enjoyed sharing it with you.
My next podcasts are going to be in regard  to some things that I’ve been sitting on, now maybe two or, two and a half years. Sometimes you must wait until you have a peace and full release to share specific supernatural things you have experienced and that you have proof of.  
One thing I will be sharing is in regard to the State of Colorado.
Things that are now beginning to take place and I believe the word is to address this, but I believe it also is a national word. I have several things that the Lord has given me to share now as we are presently in a different time.
I encourage you to listen and then pray about it and pray for your nation.
We are in a difficult time. This is nothing but repeat of history over and over again, but I do know that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord himself will raise a standare up against him.
I say goodbye to you for now and thank you for listening!
Rest Child, Rest in my Peace, Rest in my Peace, Child. Rest.

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
 
This podcast message has been sitting strongly in my spirit and of course, not all of it will be easy to hear because our flesh doesn’t like to hear about change or where God must correct us. There is also a Prophetic Word from the Lord at the end of this message, which I feel holds so much insight and promise for those He loves.
 
THE TIMES ARE RAPIDLY CHANGING AND I KNOW THAT FOR ME, IT WILL REQUIRE A DIFFERENT STRATEGY TO HANDLE THEM 
AND
THAT I MUST BE WILLING AND ABLE TO WALK OUT THE DAYS AHEAD.
 
It seems as if I identify with the prophet Jeremiah more often now than ever before.  And so, I am CHOOSING to adjust the way of delivering my portion of what the Spirit of God would give me, as He leads me. Daily.
 
I AM IN WORDLESS, TEAR-STREAMING GRIEF over the rapid forms of meditation, eastern mysticism, competitive daily trendy “prophetic” articles/ words (advertisements!) — and outright fear mongering one moment and then “hysterical” any moment breakthrough messages, (both which, recycle over and over), that are sweeping into the Body of Christ. And. the devouring and public slandering has become unbearable.
 
YOU SEE, WHEN PEOPLE REFUSE TO LET GOD BE THE JUDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, When they inject their own standards to oppose His, these people who are “usurping” assume a sovereignty or power that belongs only to God.
They choose to undermine God’s order, in order to demand their own, and in doing this, they hope to avoid the pinpricks of their conscience.  
After all, “if it’s legal” then it must be right! Right?”
No.
God’s law is not so easily escaped or fanned away as an old dusty list of metaphors.
 
CONCEIT AND PRIDE ARE THE GREATEST ENEMIES TO SPIRITUAL GROWTH!  Newly “acquired knowledge” or notoriety often leads to pride rather than wisdom.
There is no more certain way to fall into sin and self-deception than to allow pride to lead us into putting confidence in ourselves rather than God. This kind of pride always leads to destruction, because it robs us of God’s power to stand against temptation!
 
WHAT WE ACCOMPLISH AS MEMBERS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS DONE BY THE POWER OF GOD. 
 
Knowledge can be mistaken for maturity.  
True knowledge is designed to bring us TO maturity.
When we parade our so called freedom before others in an effort to reveal how much we know, we actually reveal our immaturity and are treading on dangerous ground!
 
KNOWLEDGE PUT ON PUBLIC DISPLAY
LEADS TO HEARTBREAK AND DIVISIVE SCATTERING.
 
THE WESTERN STYLE “FIRST WORLD CHURCH” IS CAUGHT UP IN SO MANY IDENTITY CRISES andwith pushing movements and meetings, that the voices crying out and weeping in the places of preparation (the wilderness) saying, “You! Yes YOU! Prepare the Way of the Lord! Straighten out those crooked, twisted paths!” – Well, they are suddenly being told to step back into a place of silence and travailing prayer, determined to lean in closer to THE Voice that is small, still, and sure.
 
FRIEND! ONLY TIME SPENT WITH THE LORD LIKE A DEAR FRIEND, will fill the gaping ache you have. He will speak, He will comfort, and He will show you what is true and what is false in the days ahead, if you will return to that “place of companionship with Him”, away from the opinions of men and the noise of this life.  
As you turn your heart and hopes towards him you will see compassion poured out upon you and you will then have his power of pure godly compassion and “wisdom driven grace” to pour out on others.
 
"SPEAK TO HIM WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART, YOUR LONGINGS,YOUR HEARTACHES, AND YOUR DREAMS.HE WILL BE THERE WITH ARMS OF STRENGTHTO RESCUE YOU FROM DESPAIR.”
 
“A Prophetic Word”
 
“Can you not hear my voice speaking to you clearly?
Has it become clouded with the cares of this life and the voices of men articulating what they “think” is my voice?
My time for you to hear the truth is never when man decides it.  
The world screams that all the chaos and change is turning and twisting men’s hearts away from me. But when I speak and when I move and I AM lifted up, men’s hearts ache for me!
 
There is a greater power in my silence then there is in the shouting of mankind saying that I do not exist!  It is folly and foolishness to think that man can try to silence or attempt to erase me!
 
I AM preparing for myself a Bride.  
Not a foolish, emotionally lovesick self-seeking Bride!
No I AM seeking and preparing for myself a mature godly gathering of those who will become one and unified with and in me.
I AM the one that is shaping and fashioning this Bride in the refining fires that are currently burning across the earth.
 
Men may try to redefine me, saying that I do not exist.
They may attempt to twist words that I have spoken in order to fit the base agenda in their own souls, but all the while I AM shaping and fashioning and preparing for myself an army and a Bride that will not be defeated in the days to come.
 
Adjust your thinking child!
I AM not a God to be dictated to or to be demanded of!  
I AM one to be approached with brokenness and humility!  
Those who have a contrite heart and a right spirit are the ones that I will answer.
 
There is a time coming when I will sweep away and clean up the false examples of prophetic ministry claiming and declaring things that have nothing to do but glorify the flesh.
If a person’s heart is not right with me, no matter what they declare, decree, or shout, it will fall upon ears of deafness in heaven.  
I desire truth in your inward parts.
 
Let me reduce you to love.
Stripping away title, presumption, and secret desires for notoriety.  
In order to be like me you have to live like I did in the earth.  
I served mankind and was spat upon.
I spoke truth and I was mocked.  
I challenged the proud and religious thinkers of the day and they desired to silence me and kill me.
 
I AM calling you my people, to become honest in heart, broken and humble before me, with a willing heart to serve me and those that I send to you. It is not their external condition that you are to judge nor categorize.  
Your job is to share my life, my light and my love with them.  
In your example of how you treat them is how I see you treating Me.
Show no favoritism but humble yourselves in my sight and do the work of my servant.
 
Yes, the days are changing and the mandates for your life are becoming more defined.
 Bow before me and reconnect your heart to truth and simplicity and the grace of knowing that you were purchased with a life poured out so that you might live life to the fullest.”
“It is necessary for him to increase and for me to decrease.”
-John 3:30

By Mary Lindow
 
TODAY’S PODCAST IS ADDRESSING SOMETHING THAT I FEEL THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD HAS GIVEN TO ME TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU, AS WELL AS HAVING A PROPHETIC WORD AT THE END.
THERE IS ALSO A BEAUTIFUL SONG FROM THE LORD TALKING ABOUT HOW HIS MERCY REDEEMS.
This was a song that our son, Joel our oldest son recorded while he was going through a very difficult and deep time in his life and out of that came this beautiful song out of his grief and out of his hurt. Out of his challenges and change came this beautiful worship song, which I feel will encourage you today!
 
IT’S A CRAZY, UPSIDE DOWN, DISPLACING PHENOMENON WITH ALL THAT IS BEING THROWN AT US IN THE WORLD AND IT’S NARRATIVES.
It’s trying to get us to feel completely off balance and mentally weary. Resting, reading, getting outdoors, crying, laughing and expressing healthy anger gets a good detox going, shaking off the "world slime" and, its agendas.
Quiet resting in the presence of God just letting His grace and unfailing "nurture" wash us clean, renews the day and our minds.
 
MY FRIENDS, THIS BATTLE IS UGLY, LONG, IT’S VICIOUS and although new to us humans right now, to God it’s the same mocking evil that has forever attempted to overthrow and usurp His Kingdom.
It will never happen!
He IS THE Supreme Being, THE Creator of Love, and he laughs at the wicked.
 
NOW, WE AS HUMANS CAN’T MANUFACTURE AN AUTHENTIC MOVE OF GOD, but we CAN create the conditions that welcome a move of God!
We mustn’t forget that these events are God’s Divine work.
Human planning ignores the sovereignty of the Living God.  
A move of God begins with a person, or with a very small group of people.
Minorities, not multitudes make history.
 
WHEN GOD SENDS A FRESH MOVE BY HIS SPIRIT, IT ALWAYS COMES SUDDENLY. Where we are least expecting Him to act, God intervenes in time and space, revealing His might and His mercy.
Light comes into dark places whether invited or not.
And, it either exposes or…
…It illuminates hearts.
 
THE VOICE OF TRUTH WILL NOT BE MOCKED OR TWISTED.
Now, God will allow time for a heart to hear and obey, but will not permit passive resistance to change when He is speaking of new directions and desires to straighten out crooked paths.
Follow the Light of Christ prodding you to obey and fall upon the rock! Broken and honest people are His favored ones.
When a heart is open to the whispers of "The Counselor", life becomes a sweet gift as each day unfolds itself like a blooming flower, from bud to full mature glory, peeling away the layers of hiding and hurting, helplessness, and the hoarding of secrets.
Light shines into your darkness and fear no longer paralyzes you when you listen to the ONE, who knows you better than any other.
 
LOVE YOUR FAMILY, PLAY, PRAY AND PROTECT.
That’s power against the darkness!
And yes! Pray honest warrior prayers!
King David did!
In Psalm 10:15 he cried out to God saying,
“Break the arm of the wicked and evil man Oh God!
Hold him accountable for his wicked deeds,
which he thought you would not discover.”
 
THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAKS THE FOLLOWING WORD OF PROPHECY
TO US IN THIS MESSAGE.
I want you to listen with an open heart
to what God instructs us to do at this time.
Here is what the Spirit of God has shared:
"Darker and broader and louder come the shouts of world to draw you into its intricate webs. 
These webs of deceit are spun with easy threads of recommendations to give in and accept passive living, and they lie with the softness of the promise of an easier life.
There is a reckoning coming to those that sell lies and imprison those who buy their wares.   
But, for those who are determined to not walk on a fence, trying to balance between their own thinking and me, there will be a “Divine Might” that will empower them to continue down the narrow and simpler pathway.
Where does this narrowing journey lead? 
What is the payoff at the end?
As you become more determined and lay aside the things that have hindered you over and over again from fully entering into the deeper places with me, a lightness and freedom will propel you toward a place of Living and Clean Light.  
That Light is Me, and you will soon know Me in a different way than you have in past years and different seasons in life.
My one warning to many is that they cannot argue that the path is “too hard”. 
What mankind may call “impossible” I call “Straight and Direct”. 
If you choose to alter the plans that I have set down for your protection and safety, you will grieve my Spirit and allow a searing of your conscience to override the truths that you know deep in your heart.
 Isaiah 26:7 says 
“The path of those who do right is straight and smooth.        
I, who am upright, make the way of the righteous level.” 
 
The simplifying and straightening of crooked places in your life has begun to increase, and the love for this move of my hand has decreased among those who choose to remain passive to conviction and pure living. 
Allow my Holy Spirit to move freely again!
I know what I must do, to break the constraints of man.
Let me move!
Wait in my Presence in prayer, in worship, in gatherings!
My Presence and Peace creates the environment for a move among humans who hunger for hope and safety! 
“Don’t stifle the Holy Spirit. 
Don't scoff at prophecies,
But test everything that is said. 
Hold on to what is good.” - I Thessalonians 5:19-21
 
Choose the “more narrow, simple way”, 
I Am there. 
Choose the pathway of “rightness and tenderheartedness” with me, even when others scoff at your simple and grace-filled choices.
When the days become darker and the world tilts and twists in further unrestrained darkness, you will be the carrier of My Light, which can lead the lukewarm and lost down the narrow, but safe and integral way, straight to Me.
Be Gracious. Be Kind. Be Hopeful.
Let go of bitterness and self-protective behaviors.
Grace and Kindness, Humility and Compassion, are the behaviors that attract the move of my hand and heart in the earth.
 
There is no greater love on earth than when you lay down your own life and your own opinions and lift up love and a sacrifice of worship and joyful unrestrained giving of all you have spiritually, physically, and in humble intercession, so that others might thrive. 
“I Am Forever With You!” Says the Spirit of Grace.
 
THIS WAS A POWERFUL WORD FROM THE LORD FOR US!
I encourage you to maybe print it out, take time to meditate on it.
Pray about it!
These moves of God that we are beginning to see moving on college campuses in different areas and now beginning to move in junior high schools, these are the moves of God that are coming for us to partake of and not to put our hands on and try to manipulate, and certainly not to cause these to become a movement that becomes something that we promote or try to sell something from!
Let them remain organic!
Let the Spirit of God blow across the land and if you’ll notice, this is causing people to cry out to God and repentance to get their hearts right.
 
MANY PEOPLE HAVE FORGOTTEN WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WAIT IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD, and to let worship just roll through the congregation or the gatherings!
Many churches have become more "concert focused" in their worship lifestyles and people just sit and listen, but there is no real entering in! No hymns, no traditional songs, maybe modernized, but certainly these are the hymns of our faith!
I NOW ENCOURAGE YOU TO SIT BACK AND LISTEN TO THIS BEAUTIFUL, WORSHIPFUL SONG AND LET THE HOLY SPIRIT SING OVER YOU, sing through you (and I think there will be some tears), as you just enjoy the beauty of how the Mercy of God Redeems us and make us clean.
 
I encourage you to go to my website which is at www.marylindow.com
I now have a page there that introduces you to our pastoral counseling services. We keep the fees very modest because we believe in helping people and not “fleecing” people.
 Now, let’s listen to that song!

Thursday Feb 16, 2023

 
Today’s podcast is going to be, addressing what it means to have the Lord protect us, and save us from evil or harm that may come our way we learn to hear his voice when he tells us to go somewhere or to not go somewhere, or when he puts something down on the inside of us that is not at peace because we are supposed to be doing something differently.
 
One particular indication in our life, where the Lord protected us will be vivid forever for my husband Steve and I. It was the weekend of my birthday which is May 1, and we had traveled from where we were living at the time which was O’Fallon Missouri, to a town nine miles west of us called Wentzville. There was a restaurant called Isabella’s and we were having the fun of Steve’s parents who came to visit us from Belleville, Illinois to celebrate with us. We also had our two little toddler boys with us. 
 
We had a wonderful lunch and on the way home we had decided to stop by a church building that my husband Steve has been involved in helping to redesign the interior of and to adjust some architecture. We had texted to see if the pastor or assistant pastor happened to still be there and, the assistant pastor was there! When we went inside we were enjoying showing things to Steve’s parents and suddenly the power went out. 
 
The sky had been looking rather odd in the direction we were traveling, and if you know the area of Missouri where tornadoes can form, skies gets a strange aqua tint to them. While we were in the building, sitting down talking with the assistant pastor, the Holy Spirit prompted both Steve and I that we were to stay for a little while and not to travel just then, and the pastor himself said he thought it was a good idea if we all just waited a little bit. So, we waited 15 to 20 minutes and then we seemed to have a “go ahead” to travel. We bundled everyone back up into the car and began to travel down the road, which was parallel to a highway and was a wide frontage road.  
 
The sky to the North and east looked very ominous!
As we began to take a curve around the bend in the road, I suddenly said to my husband, “Why is that road sign up in a tree?” And then we saw someone’s small covered work trailer up in a tree and realized there was debris to the right of us all along the grassy field area. As we finished coming around the curve, we noticed a man and a group of children standing like statues out in a grassy large front yard and behind them there were, some farm style buildings and a home that looked like they had no doors and windows on them. We pulled over and my husband and his dad went up the gravel driveway to see if they were all right, because we realized a tornado had touched down. 
 
The man was staring at my husband and father-in-law, and said, “God must’ve been with you people! I watched your car coming down the frontage road and then disappeared around the bend where I couldn’t see you anymore. The twister had dropped down in front our property a few minutes before you came around the bend, because it had just passed over our house and blew out the windows and blew the door off the refrigerator and everything out of the refrigerator, into the house.”  
Of course the more we looked around the more we realized how we would have been in that very spot when the tornado touched down if we hadn’t heeded the internal warning of the Lord to wait it out for a little bit at the church building! Our car could’ve been picked up and tossed just like all the things that were now obvious to us. 
We talked to the people for a little while to make sure they had someone coming to help them, and once we were reassured that they had assistance we got back in the car and quickly made our way home. 
 
Once we got home, the sky had turned an even more aqua color and the atmosphere was eerily still and muggy, so we went down into our basement to wait the storm out. We prayed together and asked the Lord to be a shield around us, and that he would surround us with angelic protection according to Psalm 91: 9-11, and it says this:
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling, 
No harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.”
 
We could hear the howling wind coming down our fireplace chimney, and there was an eerie glow from the strange sky color coming through the drapery in the basement windows, but we just simply talked and played with the children and waited until the sirens stopped blaring. About an hour later we went upstairs, and the sky was completely clear and dusk was setting in.
Everything was very quiet and yet we still had power in our house. People were outside sweeping up broken glass around the neighborhood and as my husband and dad in law went for a walk around the block, they were stunned! There were individual homes  that were completely wiped off the street, giant old oak trees picked up and tossed like play toys, and then there were homes left completely standing!
We knew that we had experienced the protection of the Lord two times that day, and the promise of being surrounded by his protective agents. 
Wow! What a Birthday that was! 
 
 
Dear Believers! We live in times right now where there is a tremendous amount of danger and uncertainty. There are a lot of desperate people, and a lot of people who are out of their minds on drugs and alcohol. It is at an epidemic level. When we bend our ear to listen to the Lord and ask him if we should be traveling or going somewhere, we are yielding our common sense and our way of doing things to the greater wisdom of God. 
There have been several times that I have gone to travel on an airplane with Steve or by myself, and we always pray the prayer that if there’s anything wrong with the plane Lord, stop it from ever taking off the runway.  We also had one time where we were both very unsettled about a flight. We just did not feel right getting on the plane, and as we boarded that intensity grew stronger. While we sat in our seats we began to pray, and we asked the Lord if we needed to get off the flight. 
We both immediately were impressed to pray that the captain upon final inspection of his plane, would spot what ever was wrong with it at would halt the flight. 
Sure enough as he did his walk-through outside, we noticed the captain stopping and looking at something near the engine. He climbed aboard the back stairs and went into the cockpit, and within a few moments he announced that we were going to have to deplane and wait for another plane, because there was something he was not comfortable and was not going to fly the plane until it had been addressed.
 
When you feel uncomfortable or uncertain about traveling or going somewhere, that is the Lord allowing you to be discerning about Divine protection. Each of us have experienced where we know the Lord has intervened and often there are angelic interventions that save lives. 
When our two boys were toddlers, we had a wall that we had put brackets and wood slat bookshelves up to store our library of books, and the three lower levels were to hold toys for the children at their height so they could pick them out and play with them. 
One afternoon I was in that space with the children and they were playing with their toys. They were both toddlers at the time one of the babies was under just 14 months old. 
 
I was strongly impressed to quickly move my boys away from the play area, and something nudged me in the shoulder to push me forward!  At the time I was so focused on moving them both at the same time that I wasn’t concentrating on the nudge! I scooped them up and pulled them away without alarming them and about the time I did this, the bookshelf broke free from some brackets and twisted, and hundreds of books fell down, as well as the wood shelves right in the very play space the boys had been sitting in. Of course I gathered my little ones up and held them close, and was stunned at how there could’ve been great harm done to them, and then I suddenly thought about what had pushed me forward in that very moment to get to them! 
 
I knew that the Lord had permitted angelic intervention to move me forward to get the boys in that very moment.  
 
Psalm 34:7 says, 
"The angel of the LORD surrounds those who fear him,
and he delivers them." 
 
Of course, we never pray to angelic beings, and we certainly don’t try to turn them into some kind of "bizarre, supernatural guide".  Some self-styled “angel experts” instruct their followers to love their angels and to call upon them for health, healing, prosperity, and guidance. But angels are God’s servants, and all this attention and emphasis and glory should go to God, not His servants. 
God says, “I will not share my glory with another” (Isaiah 42:8). 
 
Scripture makes no mention of loving angels—only God, His word, and people. And, it never tells us to pray to angels, only to the Lord Himself.
The church at Colossae had been invaded by false teachers, who were teaching a false humility and the worship of angels, claiming special mystic insights by way of visions in connection with their worship of angels (Co. 2:18). This was demonic because it was usurping the preeminent place and sufficiency of Christ as Savior and Lord. The claim was that Jesus was not enough for salvation and spirituality. So these people said you “needed” to worship angels, and so on.
 
These are the demonic, dark spiritual forces we’re up against today, and you can be assured that the enemy knows how to disguise himself as an angel.  His whole intent is to lead us into traps of destruction and to draw our worship away from God. 
Live aware my friends, and don’t be easily deceived. 
God promises to help us as we seek to honor Him and walk wisely in this life. 
We can trust that even when we’re unaware of our needs or impending disasters that lay before us, God knows the way. He is at work, sending words of hope, protecting his children, attending to our needs, bringing justice and mercy to our land, drawing us closer to himself, and encouraging us to walk wisely, be aware, and live fully for Him.
 
A wonderful story has been told by a Moravian missionary in connection with angelic protection!
An American missionary and his wife bravely went to their station, where, twenty years before, two missionaries had been killed by the natives. They said as they took up their work it seemed as if often they were surrounded not only by the hostile natives, but by the very powers of darkness. These powers of darkness were so real, that night after night they were forced to get up and strengthen their hearts by reading the Word of God. Again, they would pray.
 
One day a man came and said, "I would like to see your watchmen close at hand."
The missionary replied: "I have no watchmen; I have only a cook and a little herd boy. What watchmen do you mean?”
The man asked permission to look through the missionaries home. Every corner of the house was carefully searched, and the man came out of the house greatly disappointed. Then the missionary asked the man to tell him about the watchmen to whom he referred. Here is the man's answer;
"When you and your wife came here we determined to kill you as we did the missionaries twenty years ago. Night after night we came to carry out our intentions, but there always stood around your house a double row of watchmen with glittering weapons, and we dared not come near.”
“At last we hired a professional assassin, who said he feared neither God nor devil. Last night he came close to your house-we followed at a distance and he was brandishing his spear. There stood the shining watchmen, and the killer fled in terror. So we have given up our purpose to kill you, but tell me, who are the watchmen?”
 
The missionary opened the Word of God and read: 
The angel of he LORD encamps around those that fear him,
and delivers them. - Psalm 34:7 
Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him. - Deuteronomy 33:12
The Lord had hidden them.   - Jeremiah 36:26
 
God often works in ways we can’t fully see, sometimes behind the scenes or with unexpected timing, yet he’s always working on our behalf. Whether we realize it or not, there’s a spiritual realm constantly around us. 
May God give us eyes to see clearly that angels are among us and that God is working miracles, even today.
 
Let’s Pray Together For God’s Divine Protection
Father, I thank you for the great authority and protection you have given your children in the person of Jesus Christ. Even as we go out into the world, your promise remains true to us. Nothing shall, by any means, hurt us.
All authority in heaven and earth has been given to you, Lord Jesus, leaving none for the devil and his angels. Thank you for your divine protection and covering.
You have put your angels in charge concerning us, to guard us in all our ways. You have sent your angels down to your true loyal children to rescue us from danger. Your angels will lift us up and keep us from harm, as we choose to trust in you and obey your promptings and warnings in an instant!
Thank you, that by faith in the work you have done, we are protected and secure, everywhere we go!
Amen!

By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow
 
"Whoever obeys his command will come to no harm, 
and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure.
For there is a proper time and procedure for every matter, 
though a man's misery weighs heavily upon him."
Ecclesiastes 8:5-6
 
NOTE: At the end of this podcast there is a short spontaneous song of the Lord that was recorded in a small studio several years ago. There were other wonderful and gifted percussionists and musicians joining in as the Holy Spirit moved through us all and gave me the beautiful melody and orchestral keyboard accompaniment. My hope is that it will stir your heart to worship and be even hungrier for the Presence of the Lord in your life.
In all of our lives as believers, we face times and settings where there is a feeling of being pulled and tested, stretched, and restrained. Often, during these excruciating events, those who avoid personal character development tend to give unrestrained advice, spiritualized platitudes, and often, trumped up words of so-called prophetic inspiration to help us not suffer so!
As we begin to see the Lord's plan in all of this we also come to understand that if we are not first hearing His voice, His heart, His word in the matters that are straining us, nothing any man or woman says can bring the ultimate light of clarity and release! 

 
WINTER SPRING SUMMER AND FALL
 
We all face seasons of change that correspond much like the four seasons we observe yearly. Nothing is more surprising than to have an interruption of what we presume to be what is "normal" for an earthly expectation, in one of those seasons.
When a sudden ice snow storm blows in unexpected in the late spring in the Colorado fruit growing regions and encrusts the tender blooms on fruit trees and garden plants, we are devastated by the loss of not only the blooms, but also the fruit it could have produced. It appears as if there has been a cruel storm sent to cause crop failure.
 
WHAT IS THIS CURRENT SEASON OF DIVINE TENSION ALL ABOUT?
For many who are hearing or reading this message, you feel as if you have experienced a "Crop failure," perhaps several, and just can’t take one more aching disappointment. Many hearts have passed their tender agonies to me on paper, in emails, texts, and through the telephone.
 
ANGUISH HAS ITS OWN PERFUME 
I too have heard the whispers of the voices of darkness try to entice, with wearisome words of worry, paranoia and doubting!
"Give up!" they say! "What good is this time of shaking doing?"
"What possible good can come out of believing that there is something occurring that will bring a fresh advancement when all seems to have stalled or strained?”
And yet, another set of voices would tempt with words of esteem whispering;
"Make it happen! 
Proclaim mighty deeds and things to come with fervor, flair and well-honed words of impact!
Use it or lose it!
Promote, push, and publish! It is all yours for the taking!"
 
BOTH OF THESE VOICES COME FROM THE SUBTLETIES OF THE SOUL AND WELL OILED SPIRITUAL VOICES TRAINED BY THE PRINCE OF LIES AND FLESHLY IMPULSE.
 
But.
In the midst of these strains and attempts to distract comes a clear undeniable "Divine Tension" that pulls and stretches the heart of the humbled believer.
It calls simply, firmly, and does not lack a depth of confidence and direction.
This “Presence” causes a clash with all that seems to be "the way of man" and will not relent.
 
THE EARTH IS IN TURMOIL

It doesn't take much to understand that the earth is in upheaval, rivalry, and chaos wherever we look. There is a tangible and penetrating "tension" in the events we are seeing unfold every day. Parallel to this explosion of pure evil and lulling to sleep of many, there is a Divine Course being laid out for those who have come to the end of them.
 
ETERNITY IS IN THE SIGHTS OF THOSE LOOKING TO A KINGDOM YET UNSEEN.
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have been preparing a bride. 
This is done only through the shaping tools of heavenly choice.
The chisel and hammer have been at times brutal and unflinching, yet, when the soft hand of The Almighty begins to apply the oil of polishing, He does it with His own hand as well.
He makes it beautiful in His own timing, even though the “Divine Tension” seems as if it might cause us to "snap" under the pressure of His hand, smoothing away the roughness of our thoughts and soul's intentions.
 
Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men;
Yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
 
HEARING, REFINING, HEEDING
 
The King of all Glory is training those who have been thrust on the altar of fire to hear from Him as one who strains to catch the song of a bird in distant meadow.
It takes the "spiritual ear" and training it to identify even the slightest note or sound, however distant, and to learn to silence the sounds and voices of distraction until the  "honing in" on the sound, the glorious sound of peace, finally directs and sustains us with all that we hear.
And then, having drunk deeply of the Voice of the Beloved and Divine Counselor, quickly, without mental filing way of instructions or overthinking, we move and heed His mapping out of plans for this appointed time.
 
RISING FROM THE ASHES OF THE REFINING OF GOD

So! Unto those who hear this word from heaven, claiming you are one of Heaven's very own, know that you are being formed and fashioned into sober, clean containers, prepared for infilling.
My Spirit will fall upon those who are not seeking to lay claim to My voice, but instead HEED My voice and SEEK My face. 
They shall be examples of purity in My Kingdom and will not strive among the self-promoting and “wordy". The broken will be safe in the arms of these who have passed through the current season of being pulled and tested, stretched and restrained and they will restore the devastated.
My "faithful hearts" will not be compelled to build agendas for Me and My Presence, because I will BE the Presence that creates the Manifestations of Glory and Might in the earth, without the fanfares of men.
YOU HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO DESPERATION IN ORDER THAT I MIGHT RESTORE YOU TO INSPIRED LIVING, IN FULL FELLOWSHIP WITH ME.
Isaiah 61
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
Because the LORD has anointed me
To preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim freedom for the captives
And release from darkness for the prisoners,
To proclaim the year of the Lords’ favor
And the day of vengeance of our God,
To comfort all who mourn, 
And provide for those who grieve in Zion
To bestow on them a crown of beauty
Instead of ashes, the oil of gladness,
Instead of mourning,
And a garment of praise, Instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
A planting of the LORD
For the display of his glory and splendor.

By Mary Lindow
Today’s podcast is one that I am going to share with you about “another wonderful story” of how the Holy Spirit can prompt us to do things for others at the most uncanny times, and as if they were perfectly orchestrated years and years beforehand.
And, of course, the Lord knows the heart desire of every one of his children, but he often uses his own children to help bring about the heart’s desire for many other people by being obedient and acting when the Holy Spirit in first Corinthians says, “Don’t you know that your body is a temple that belongs to the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit, whom you received from God, lives in you. You don’t belong to yourselves.” 1 Corinthians 6:19
 
IT WAS NEAR CHRISTMAS TIME, and a local Women’s Aglow group, which happened to be a good sized chapter, was having a Christmas ladies luncheon and asked if I would come in and be their keynote speaker. The room was decorated beautifully and of course the tables were festive for the holiday!
As I was sitting at the table next to the team members and the president of the group, there was a conversation about the beautiful table settings. I was just listening and enjoying hearing them talk about how they went about getting everything ready, and why they wanted to make it so nice for so many other women that were coming, because many of them worked full-time jobs and didn’t get a chance to come and partake of beautiful things during the holidays because they were also busy mothers.
 
ONE OF THE LADIES BY THE NAME OF BILLY WAS SHARING WITH EVERYONE THAT SHE HAD JUST GONE SHOPPING WITH HER DAUGHTER A FEW WEEKS AGO, and they had picked out Wedding China for her daughter and her husband, because her daughter was going to be married in the spring. She went on to say that she never did get to have Wedding China as a young bride and wanted her daughter to have a beautiful experience and opportunity to have a beautiful table.
 
I THOUGHT, "WHAT A WONDERFUL THING THIS WAS THAT THIS WOMAN WAS GETTING CHINA FOR HER DAUGHTER, AND THAT SHE HAD NEVER HAD WEDDING CHINA HERSELF." She went on to mention that she had picked out a special pattern herself as a young bride, but that it was just not possible for her family and friends to give wedding china at that point, because it was a very frugal wedding, and other wedding gifts were more important.
I sat there and wondered about how wonderful it was for her as a mother, to be so concerned that her daughter would have a beautiful table to set with beautiful things, when she herself had never had any. Now, it was time for me to get up and share my Christmas message so I did, and afterwards told her how beautiful her story was to me about her daughter, and proceeded to go home for the day.
On my way home, I began to remember that I have been given an entire set a Fine China from a dear friend, whom I had come to know while I was in Bible College.
 
NOW, THIS IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING!
This dear, godly, lovely man would take on students to help with jobs or different kinds of projects in his home or, other derelict properties that he would buy, and train them and also pay them so they could pay for their Bible college fees. He had been in the military with a high clearance type of job, and although he had wanted to marry, he knew that he would never be able to be home enough to justify caring for a bride. At 63 he began to take students into his home for meals and storytelling, and developing them for skill sets. He had been a trainer for all kinds of business components of the military.
WHEN I MET HIM WHEN IMMEDIATELY HAD A BOND because he was also a gifted musician, and had a love for Fine art and Fine China. He would go to the thrift stores or take me along and different places where very wealthy Texans would drop off Crystal and China and dishes and silver that they were no longer using. So he was forever scouting out Havilland china pieces or different kinds of China to add to his collection. I went on to meet my husband and marry him later and we moved to Illinois. (That’s where my husbands from.)
THIS LOVELY MAN BY THE NAME OF ALAN would occasionally sent boxes of pieces of things that he would find to add to a side of China for me, and I did have wedding China of my own. At one time we had three full sets of Fine China and I wasn’t sure what to do with all of it! Then came two boxes that he had found of a 1950s china pattern that he thought was exquisite! I had opened the boxes and noticed there were eight place settings, eight cups and saucers, eight salad plates, eight serving plates, and also a creamer and sugar set as well as a large serving bowl.
 
SOMEHOW, I NEVER FELT LIKE THESE WERE TO BELONG TO ME, and I really didn’t have storage for them. So, I put them away in a cupboard thinking that someday if we moved and I had a China hutch for them, I would use them as spring dishes. They had a platinum rim, they were white and off to the right side there was a spray of flowers that had a lot of teal and a little bit of touch of pink and a hint of orange, and of course soft green.
 
STEVE AND I WERE THEN CALLED TO GO HELP PIONEER A CHURCH IN MISSOURI, so we packed everything up and moved those dishes and everything else to Missouri. And understand these dishes have been shipped from Dallas Texas to Illinois. Now they were taking a trip to Missouri!
 
ABOUT TWO YEARS LATER STEVE AND I DECIDED THAT WE WERE GOING TO MOVE BACK TO DENVER, COLORADO BECAUSE THE LORD HAD PROMPTED US TO DO SO. So once again, we packed everything up and moved to Denver. There I was in Denver speaking at a Women’s Aglow Christmas banquet luncheon and I hear this woman-discussing find China for her daughter.
 
NOW! BACK TO ME ON MY WAY HOME. 
The thought came to me, (prompted by the Holy Spirit) “Why don’t you give that set of China to Billy? What a wonderful Christmas gift it would be to gift to her, and she would have a lovely set of China for her own home.”
I was absolutely thrilled to think that this would belong to someone else, and that the Lord would want me to give it to them. But I wasn’t sure if it was a pattern she would want or not.
 
BUT THE PERSISTENT NUDGING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT…
… WOULD NOT GO AWAY!
 
I went into our basement storage area and found the two boxes and everything was still pristine and in great condition. I wrote a quick card, and told her that I felt like the Lord wanted me to give these to her after listening to her conversation about buying China for her daughter and then that I just wanted to bless her with it so she would have a beautiful table at Christmas time. I did get a hold of her telephone number and called and told her that I was having my husband and two little boys run some boxes by, just a little something for her. Would she be home? She said of course she would and she said she was “quite intrigued”.
I BUNDLED UP THE BOXES AND HELPED MY HUSBAND GET THE TWO LITTLE BOYS INTO THE CAR AND OFF THEY WENT TO DO THE DELIVERY. I was downstairs folding laundry, and just thinking about how much I hoped it blessed her, and that she would be tickled that the lord thought of her.
 
 NOW COMES THE MOST EXCITING PART!
The phone starts ringing and I went upstairs and I missed it. (This is back when Cell Phones were way too expensive for everyone and we still had a landline with a long cord!)
Then the phone started ringing again, so I quickly answered the phone, and on the other end, there was the sound of someone gasping and crying! Now Being a pastor's wife, we often received calls from people who were in distress or who were needing prayer, so, I began to saying, “Hello? Who’s there? Can I help you?” Finally, the person on the end of the line was able to clear their throat and gather their emotions, and it was Billy the lady who Steve had dropped the China off to.
 
SHE BEGAN SAYING, “OH MARY! YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!” And of course I didn’t, and I wasn’t sure if it was a good thing or a bad thing, but I could tell that she was overcome! She then began to tell me that when the boxes arrived, she was tickled to think that someone thought of her, and my husband said my wife wanted to give these to you and wish you a Merry Christmas. But, when she closed the door and went to open the packages, she reached in and pulled out one of the dinner plates that was in a slotted cardboard area. The China pattern was the EXACT China pattern that she had wanted as a young bride, but never had. It had the platinum rim that she had desired to have on her pattern! And there were eight place settings, just enough for her Christmas table and her family that was coming to feast. Also, she was able to set a beautiful place setting and table, for the Mother of the Groom, who was going to come and visit.
 
THIS WOMAN WAS WEEPING AND LAUGHING, AND COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT THE LORD WOULD HAVE HELD ONTO THIS CHINA FOR HER ALL THESE YEARS. I told her that they have been given to me and shipped from Dallas to Illinois to Missouri to Denver. Imagine! The Lord had shipped those dishes, and had me move them “strategically”, until they got into the hands of the woman that he had planned to bless them with!
 
MY FRIENDS, GOD KNOWS THE DESIRES OF OUR HEARTS even down to the simple things like Fine China, and he knows that soft and beautiful things, in specific times of our life are so necessary, to show us how lavish and beautiful his care and love for us is.
 
THE STORY GOES ON BECAUSE MANY OF HER FRIENDS THEN BEGAN TO HEAR THE STORY ABOUT “THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE CHINA”, and they began to give her serving pieces that matched, or Silver pieces or Crystal, and one friend even gave her a set of family silverware to accompany her beautiful table. Everyone wanted to get in on the beautiful moment!
 
WHEN STEVE CAME HOME, WE JUST PUT OUR ARMS AROUND EACH OTHER AND LAUGHED AND CRIED at the joy of knowing the Lord had those dishes, literally moved and sent on his behalf, to this darling woman.
 
I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO NEVER, EVER, MINIMIZE THE FACT, THE HOLY SPIRIT ASKS YOU TO DO SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE ELSE.
It could be something as simple as giving them a beautiful scarf that you are no longer wearing, or perhaps you have tools in your garage that you’re not using.
IT’S IN THE ACT OF GIVING
THAT THE PRESENCE OF GOD COMES DOWN
AND TRANSFORMS WHAT WE ARE GIVING, INTO HOPE.
 
 
GIVING IS NOT THE NATURE OF THE DARK WORLD! Taking and grasping and hoarding is from the dark part of the world. But we as believers are to give freely because we have freely received everything we could ever need to save us from the doom and darkness of this world.
When Christ himself came and gave his life as a lamb, as a child, he gave his life to us in the form of an infant so that when his day to die up on the cross came; he could truly say that he experienced life like we have, from cradle to grave.
 
AS WE ALL BEGIN TO DE-CLUTTER AND PUT AWAY CHRISTMAS ITEMS, I would encourage you to look at through the lens of what you have, and ask the Lord, “Is this something that I need to be sharing with someone else?”
Is there another set of silverware in your house that you are not using that another family might need?
Do you have several pairs of sports tennis shoes that you purchased and realized you don’t like them and they’re practically brand new?
 
FIND A FAMILY, FIND SOMEONE WHO NEEDS THEM.
And yes, you have to look for them sometimes, but the Lord will direct your path because you are led by the Holy Spirit and you belong to Him, and the Holy Spirit wastes NOTHING!
 
WE ARE LIVING IN A TIME WHERE THE BODY OF CHRIST
IS BEING CHAMPIONED AND CHALLENGED TO LEARN
HOW TO CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND MEET ONE ANOTHER’S NEEDS SO THAT NONE ARE LACKING.
There’s no place in the Bible that talks about hoarding or keeping everything to us. None whatsoever. But it does talk about sharing and at times, “sacrificial giving to others” so that they may know the love of Christ.
I encourage you to go through your canned goods to look at your bedding, sheets, extra coats, and by all means that dozens of Bibles that we all have sitting on our shelves in abundance! There are those who would give anything to have a new Bible or perhaps a warmer winter coat.
 
WE CANNOT LOOK DOWN ON THOSE WHO ARE SLIGHTLY IMPOVERISHED OR IMPOVERISHED,
BECAUSE THERE’S NOTHING "MORE GODLY" ABOUT BEING WEALTHY, THAN THERE IS ABOUT BEING POOR.
 
GOD JUDGES THE INTENTION OF OUR HEARTS,
NOT THE ABUNDANCE OF OUR WALLETS.
 
THERE ARE THINGS AROUND YOU THAT THE LORD HAS PLACED WITHIN YOUR REACH and maybe even you have moved from state to state or move from one house to another that you could easily ask him about and ask him to prompt you to show you who is this to go to.
You may be sitting in a restaurant and hear someone talking about something they need and you may be prompted by the Holy Spirit that you are the one that has it.
It takes simple listening.
It just takes simple listening!
It doesn’t take a Herculean effort.
But love acts!
 
ONCE WE SECOND-GUESS OURSELVES and never stop and buy that cup of coffee for the person in front of us that seems downtrodden. Or, we wonder if that $20 towards someone’s grocery bill in front of us makes any difference, then we miss out on the blessing. But you see it’s not for us to question the amount or the moment! It’s for us to act in loving grace and humility and kindness, and in that moment change the world!
 
HEAVEN COMES DOWN AND MEETS THE NEED AND KISSES SOMEONE’S HEART WITH HOPE, AND HE USES US TO DO IT.
 
I wish you all a beautiful week as you prepare  for this up-and-coming year.
My message after the first of the year is going to talk about “Peace in the midst of chaos” because the world is becoming more chaotic, and unfortunately the world is covered with a gross darkness right now.
Believers need to be strengthened encouraged not to quit, not to hide, and certainly not to hoard!
I BLESS YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS AND I PRAY NOW THAT HE WILL TOUCH YOU AND GUIDE YOU AND SHOW YOU WHAT TO DO WITH THE THINGS THAT YOU DO HAVE, THAT YOU CAN GIVE FREELY. And, perhaps there are things that you are feeling a tug at your heart that you need to give but they’re going to cause a little pain to give away. That’s OK! The Lord does love, sacrificial, giving, and above all, he loves a joyful giver!
 
THERE IS NOTHING MORE JOYFUL THAN TO SEE THE ABSOLUTE SURPRISE AND DELIGHT ON THE FACE OF SOMEONE THAT YOU HAVE BLESSED IN KINDNESS, AND WITHOUT FANFARE.
 
Have a beautiful and Happy New Year, but above all, pray that the Lord would show you what he has to say to you in 2023 specifically for your life  and what kind of assignments he has for you.
 
THE CHURCH IS BEING CALLED UP TO BE THE FULL ARMORED BODY OF CHRIST, AND MY FRIENDS THAT MEANS YOU AND I.

TODAY’S PODCAST IS ONE OF SEVERAL THAT I WILL BE DOING IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS WHICH I TRUST WILL ENHANCE YOUR CHRISTMAS SEASON, EVEN THOUGH THE MESSAGE IS ONE FOR ANY SEASON!
I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to share with you, some very tender and beautiful moments where the Lord moved upon my husband, and I to obey the spirit of God promptly, and out of doing this God did great and amazing things!
I also want to thank those of you that have been so consistent in helping me to produce podcasts. I am now reaching through the grace of God 60 countries freely, and also have been picked up by dozens of different podcast organizations. It does cost me to have to produce and publish these because they have to be parked somewhere. So again, I thank you and I know that at times it is difficult to give, and I do not take it lightly. It does help me do what I do because without you, I would have to stop!
 
NOW LET’S BEGIN WITH TODAY’S EXCITING “GOD STORY” PODCAST.
My husband and I were given tickets to attend any movie of choice that we wanted to. Of course there’s not much to choose from out there anymore that isn’t filled with all kinds of trashy material and narratives which we just simply choose not to support. So, we were thrilled to find out that Season Three of the tremendously well done epic cinematic story of the apostles and Jesus, the epic production of “The Chosen“ was showing at our local theater! They were releasing the first two episodes of Season Three!
We had just recently returned from a trip, and I had just returned from ministering at two different conferences. We were both a little tired, and to be honest, weary with the world. At the same time when we came home a day or two later after the last trip, my husband was rushed to the emergency room with excruciating pain, and we found out that he had a very large kidney stone. That night after 10 hours, we came home, I was sitting in our living room praying and just trying to be quiet and calm myself, and I heard a strange noise downstairs in our lower level closet area. I heard a grinding and a popping and hissing sound. Something was not right with our furnace!
 
COLORADO WINTER WAS UPON US AND THE FURNACE WAS NOT BEHAVING!
I went downstairs and could not see that the gas pilot was lighting, nor was there anything remotely close to heat coming out of it, so I just assumed that the pilot light was out. To cut to the chase, there were no parts to repair our furnace due to supply chain issues, and the potential for us having had carbon monoxide poisoning going on was high!
We were grateful that the Lord alerted us to this! But we were NOT happy that we were going to have to replace an entire furnace system, and up to the new specifications for “green energy requirements“ in Colorado.
 
WHAT AN ABSOLUTE HORRIBLE THING TO HAPPEN BEFORE CHRISTMAS! RIGHT?
And, we had just finally caught up on paying for the last of Steve’s Father’s care in assisted living, as he had just passed away in March. He was 96 years old, and of course had planned to take care of himself, but no one knew he would live to such a ripe age of 96!
So, we were feeling a little bit out of sorts and overwhelmed and COLD and decided that we would go to the movie and just enjoy something where the presence of God was allowed to flow, as well as something that was going to be meaningful and purposeful during this difficult time we were in, once again.
 
WE WERE SCHEDULED TO SEE THE MOVIE AT 1:45 PM IN THE AFTERNOON.
As we walked into the theater, there was no one else IN the theater but Steve and I! We did arrive a few minutes early but as time passed, it was obvious we were at an afternoon matinee close to the end of the time they were going to show this film. So, we just sat there and held hands and watched all the previews of wonderful new films that were coming out by Christian groups and their animations for children. 
 
THEN, OFF TO THE SIDE...
...WE NOTICED A YOUNG MAN COME IN THE DOOR.
He had to be in his mid-20s, and certainly not any older than 30. He was dressed in a white snapback baseball cap, a white hoodie with red and black graphics of some type on the front, and off-white khaki type colored jeans and white tennis shoes with black laces.
Now, I noticed all of this because there was not another single person to pay attention to at that point! Just a minute or two later another couple who were fragile and older, probably in their mid 80s, came in and sat far off to the side.
 
THE ENTIRE PRODUCTION WAS AS IF TIME WAS SUSPENDED, as we watched our own lives passing before us, as the Lord had called us so many years ago, individually as young people, and then as a married couple into the service of the King. The hardships, the “iron sharpening iron” dialogs that shaped and fashioned our marriage. And nd the things that the Lord needed to prune away in order for us to be better, used by his plan and hands.
 
WE COULD FEEL THE “DIVINE TENSION” BUILDING,and we knew that this production had been created for this very time in the earth. We sat in our seats and wept, and prayed for our world and our nation. We asked God to help us to be strong and to not be afraid, and that he would use us until our very last breath.
 
Toward the end of the production, there was a clear understanding, that the disciples and the women who were followers of Jesus knew that this next phase of ministry they were called to, was going to be very sobering and very difficult, and, that the pressure from external governments (the Romans) and then dealing with the religious dictators of the day among them Pharisees/Sanhedrin, it was pressing in on all of them.
 
THEY WERE BEING CALLED TO COMPLETELY ABANDON ALL OF THEIR OWN PLANS, and all of their own desires and everything they owned in order to be sent out two by two, to go preach the gospel. We watched them struggle to figure out how food was going to be provided and more, even though they had seen Jesus multiply in the crowds. We watched Peter and his wife look at each other, wondering if they would ever have the children they were longing for. And yet, we also watched Matthew the tax collector have a redemptive reconciliation with his parents (who had previously, literally, disowned him), because they too had come to be followers of Jesus. It’s uncanny that the words “The Chosen” are the key words that define the name of this production.
 
BEFORE I GO INTO THE NEXT PART, WHICH IS THE ABOUT COMMAND OF THE LORD AND SUPERNATURAL PART OF THE SUPERNATURAL EVENT, THAT TOOK PLACE, I would like to tell you that you can download the app on your phone or onto your computer and watch   season one and season two of the chosen absolutely for no cost. This entire production has been funded by crowdfunding only. It is the largest crowdfunded, crowd-sourced production ever to be done. How absolutely amazing of the Lord to have this kind of an event to be produced during the most difficult and tumultuous times that we are all now experiencing in this current era!
 
SO NOW, BACK TO THE STORY!
Steve and I sat there very quietly once the movie had ended.
The older couple had left.
We were just watching the credits, listening to the music and quite honestly crying and being shaken by all that we have been experiencing lately with so many deaths, the hardships of travel and ministry and strange beds, and so many people hungry for a word, or a touch from the Lord and us knowing we have very human limits. We were weary from funerals that we had been attending or hearing about from the multiple deaths during the Wuhan COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Drug overdoses, many suicides. 
 
WE HAD BEEN WORKING IN PASTORAL COUNSELING WORK WITH SOME EXTREMELY DEVASTATING AND HARD CASES WHERE WE KNEW THAT WE HAD STRETCHED OUR LIMITS TO THE FINAL POINT, AND ONLY GOD COULD DO THE FINAL WORK.
And of course, burying Steve’s father in the spring, after having recently buried his mother during Covid, and not being able to see her was still weighing on our hearts. And then there was that shocking expense of that new furnace and entire new venting system. UGH!
We were absolutely weeping over the movie, identifying with the struggles of the apostles and disciples, as well as contemplating this time in our lives, and what God needed to do to assist us as well!
 
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw movement and I noticed the young man was now coming down the steps, and was going to exit the theatre.
 
As he went around the corner out into the hallway to exit, the Holy Spirit, clearly spoke to me, “Go after him! I want you to say something to him! I sent you here to this specific, showing so that you would see him.”
 
SO! I QUICKLY GOT OUT OF MY SEAT AND TOOK OFF AFTER HIM, and as the door was closing to the cinema entry section that we had just been in,
I shouted, “Excuse me! Excuse me!”
I made it to the door and outside of the door, because the young man had heard me and held it open. I simply looked in the young man’s eyes, and I said, “I feel that the Lord wanted me to come out and speak to you. He has something he wants me to tell you and I would be wrong if I did not take the time to stop and obey him.” I asked the young man if it was OK if I told him what I felt, I was to say to him, and he said,  “Yes, please!” very politely.
 
I BEGAN TO TELL HIM THAT HE WAS SENT TO THE MOVIE THEATER AT THE VERY SAME TIME WE WERE BECAUSE GOD WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT SOMEONE SAW HIM, THAT WE SAW HIM, AND THAT THE THINGS GOD NEEDED TO SAY TO HIM WERE DELIVERED.
 
ABOUT THE TIME, I SAID THAT I WAS ABSOLUTELY HIT WITH AN UNUSUALLY STRONG SENSE OF TREMBLING. Now, when I minister to people, or when I am in a prophetic vein of ministry, whether I’m teaching, or whether I am literally delivering words of knowledge, words of wisdom or songs of the Lord, I am aware of an intense presence and weight of the glory of the Lord, but this was definitely different.
 
I WASN’T SURE I COULD FINISH WHAT I WAS SAYING TO HIM.
I WAS LITERALLY WEEPING AND SHAKING TRYING TO TELL THIS YOUNG MAN WHAT GOD WANTED TO SAY TO HIM.
And so I spoke in my weakness, and absolutely in this undone state that I was in.
The Holy Spirit began to tell him that he himself is one of the chosen of God. That he has been called to minister to his people, to his own culture of people.(Side-note: I’m not sure if he was First Native/First Nations Individual or of Asian descent or a combination of both, but his features seemed to indicate that.) 
 
The Holy Spirit then had me say to him, “you don’t know how you’re going to pull this off.”  You don’t know how you’re going to get to the people but the Lord says to tell you that he has called you and that you are being positioned and prepared and you were sent here today to receive this confirmation.” The Holy Spirit said to tell him, “You can do this! You can do this because I have called you and have chosen you and I have set you apart. I’ve set you aside to do this work for me. You’ve been struggling and you’ve been wrestling with the Lord today and asked Him to speak to you. The Lord says to you that he will give you the courage and the strength and the ability to do what he has called you to do.”
 
“YOU ARE NOT TO BE AFRAID AND YOU’RE NOT TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK.
You simply step in and obey and begin to minister to those around you and the Lord is going to make the way for you. He’s going to open the doors and prepare the way for you. Then again, the Holy Spirit said, “Don't be afraid and question how God is going to do this, because you have been chosen, and we were sent to you today to tell you this.” I had told him that I had been a pastor that I had been a missionary, and continue to mentor, as well as do pastoral counseling, and have worked many hard side jobs, even now as we still serve the Lord.
 
I also told him it is not easy!  
I told him that it will take great courage, and it will take great faith that only comes from God to be able to want to even continue. Especially during the times that you see the impossible as impossible to handle! But, that He would not be alone. That the Holy Spirit will come and give him the strength and speak to him and tell him what to do. Because He, is Chosen.
 
HE WAS WEEPING, AND GENTLY AND HUMBLY HAD HIS HEAD BOWED.
THIS IS A YOUNG MAN GOD IS PREPARING TO USE,
IN THIS TIME IN THE EARTH!
HE WAS HUMBLE, AND HE WAS WILLING TO RECEIVE.
 
I asked him if I could pray for him and lay my hand on him.
He nodded his head and said, “Yes, please! Please!”
Now about this time Steve had come out the side door himself, and stood off to the side, and was praying in the spirit because he could tell that I was engaged, and he didn’t want to break the flow of what God was doing.
 
I GENTLY LAID MY HAND ON THE YOUNG MAN’S SHOULDER NEAR HIS COLLARBONE, and began to pray for him, and ask the Holy Spirit to impart and infuse him with great courage and great wisdom, and great direction during this time in his life. That he would surround him with people who would cheer him on, but also help him to be strong and accountable so he would not be taken out by the temptations that often come to young people in ministry, as well as anyone in ministry!
Again, the power of God and the presence of God was so strong he and I both were shaking and weeping. This was as if a commissioning of God was taking place right there in that side lobby of a movie theater. And yet there was no one else observing this! Well, no one else in “the natural”,     except Steve, but it was as if the heavens opened up and there was a shaft of divine glory and a commissioning of the Lord taking place over this young man.
 
This year Steve and I have had the opportunity to ordain someone who served the Lord alongside us for many years, and then moved to another state. On top of that, the Lord has been sending us more and more individuals for mentoring and training and we believe there will be more commissioning and more ordaining in the days ahead because God is beginning to send out more and more people who have served faithfully, without ever having had a title or a position named out in a church function or a church body. They just continue to do the works of the Spirit of God without fanfare.
 
AND SO IT SEEMED AS IF THIS WAS ANOTHER DIVINE,
UNSCRIPTED APPOINTMENT OF THE LORD.
As I finished praying with this young man, I just put my arm around his neck and hugged him and told him that, “He could do this! God is with you!” He held on to me and was weeping and kept saying, “Thank you, thank you so much! I can’t tell you how much this means. Thank you!”  And then he simply took off down the hallway and went out the door to the parking lot.
 
Once again, Steve and I stood there and I had to go lean against a wall for a few minutes, because the presence of God was so very tangibly strong. I was saying to the Lord, “Here we  are Lord! Use us to your fullest!” Steve began to say the same things.  “Lord, we are weary, we are poured out, and we are tired! Yet, your presence and your power and your strength comes and ignites the fire to once again deliver the word of the Lord to whoever you send to us!”
 
We finally got ourselves together and decided to go to a nearby restaurant called Red Robin and split a hamburger and a salad. We had a few space heaters that we were going to use in our home to keep it warm while waiting for this furnace situation to be addressed, and quite honestly, we just didn’t want to go home to a cold house and cook dinner and try to warm everything up all at the same time. 
 
I was still very tender hearted and contemplating as we came into the restaurant and sat down at the table.We were quiet and we were thinking of what just happened and just sat there for a bit until our waitress came. She looked at me and asked me if I was OK! I smiled at her and I said, “I’m actually really wonderful, but we just had an intense experience watching a movie and it has tremendously moved us emotionally and we’ve got a lot to think about.”
 
AND GUESS WHAT?
She looked at us and said, “What happened? What movie was this?”
And once again, that power of God dropped down on us. With tears pouring down my face, I told her about what “The Chosen” was. Now, this girl was not a believer! But! She tenderly looked at me and she said, “I need something like this !I need something meaningful! I need something that I can enjoy and that helps me to feel better during the Christmas season!”
So I told her about the app, I told her about the season one and two being a free opportunity to watch. She said she wanted to watch season one and two, first, and then she would go with her friends to watch season three because she thinks her friends might need to see it too. We then ordered our meal and just sat there and looked at each other again and said this is what we live for! YAY GOD!!!
Several times throughout the meal she came by and just stood there and wanted to talk to us. You could tell she was feeling something, she was sensing something.
 
She was sensing what her soul was longing for, and that was safety in the presence of the Lord and safety in the presence of his people.
 
She didn’t know how to define it, but she was longing for it. As we got ready to leave, she came over and thanked us and told us how much it meant for her to talk with us and meet us at that time.
 
STEVE AND I GOT OUT INTO THE CAR AND JUST SAT THERE AGAIN IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD, KNOWING THAT WE WERE SPECIFICALLY SET APART FOR THAT VERY DAY, FOR THOSE TWO INDIVIDUAL SOULS TO HEAR OF THE HOPE AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIGHT OF CHRIST.
 
WE KNOW THAT WE ARE IN A TIME RIGHT NOW WHERE GOD IS LOOKING BACK-AND-FORTH ACROSS THE EARTH FOR HIS PEOPLE WHO HAVE PREPARED AND WHO DISCIPLE AND TO TRAIN OTHERS.
BUT ABOVE ALL, HE’S LOOKING FOR THOSE WHO HEAR THE VOICE OF THE  HOLY SPIRIT AND OBEY THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT PROMPTLY.
 
MY DEAR LISTENERS!
I CAN TELL YOU THAT SOME OF THINGS THE HOLY SPIRIT IS TELLING YOU TO DO OR NOT TO DO IS CRUCIAL IN THIS TIME THAT WE ARE LIVING IN.
If you have even the slightest hesitation inside of you about something you are about to commit to, and you do not feel at peace, no matter what others think about you, you must withdraw, you must not do that thing.
 
WE ARE IN A TIME WHERE THE ENEMY IS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO SNARE AND TRIP UP INDIVIDUALS, TO DESTROY BELIEVERS AND GET THEM OFF THE TRACK OF HEARING THE LORD’S VOICE, AND ABOVE ALL, OBEYING THE LORD‘S VOICE.
 
The word of the Lord says, “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21)
 
IF YOU DON’T HEAR THE VOICE OF THE LORD TELLING YOU WHICH DIRECTION TO WALK, THEN YOU DON’T MOVE. But if you do hear him, you get up and run like I did towards that individual or that situation that God is going to immerse you into.
 
This powerful presence that can shake our flesh to the core is what God is about to pour out upon those who are willing to hear the voice of the Lord, and no matter what the cost, no matter what the assignment, they run towards it!
He is also going to bring a strong conviction over those who are moving out of his will, because they are still moving in the patterns of the things they feel they want to do for him and he has not made that way clear. Others are pushing and attempting to motivate many, into things that are not of the Lord right now.
 
WHAT IS THE KEY ELEMENT THAT GOD IS USING RIGHT NOW?
 It is an atmosphere that you choose to step into through worship.
Through worshipping, waiting in his presence, and praying and interceding. And, there will be during that time, a great presence of the Lord where there will also be much repentance and adjustment done to our souls. Why? Because God knows that the days are dark, men are evil, and human beings are easily led away from doing difficult things.
 
WHAT IS THE LORD IS SHOWING YOU TO DO DURING THIS SEASON?
There are hundreds of thousands of people that are longing for one word of encouragement, one word of kindness and the Lord is calling up all of his troops, all of his great army of believers to be on the alert for the opportunity to let the glory of God come and move through you to reach out to those who are now facing this confusing, dark time.
 
 
LET’S PRAY TOGETHER RIGHT NOW!
Heavenly Father! I pray that you help people to be strong and courageous to not be troubled nor be dismayed for in Isaiah you said, I the Lord am with you and I will hold you up with my righteous right hand! 
 
Lord, we ask that you use us to the fullest extent of your glory until there’s nothing left in us! Oh Lord, I pray that those that who are listening to this podcast today would feel your presence drop down around them and that they too would weep and stand before you, and pray saying those words, “Here I am Lord! Send me!” 
Lord I ask that you would open their eyes to see the many who are just waiting for them to come and speak to them. We adore and give you all honor today Father, in the most marvelous and mighty name of Jesus! Amen!
 
I truly hope that you were encouraged and inspired by this wonderful experience that I shared with you and I also hope that you will pop back in next week when I will have another amazing Christmas “Miracle story” to share with you and that it will encourage you and challenge you to take a risk and step out and let the Lord use you in the most wonderful and seemingly impossible situations!
Goodbye for now!
May God greatly bless you with Peace, Joy,
and great Anticipation of how he’s going to use you.

By Mary Lindow
 
THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS SAYING...
"Be very careful whom you share your treasures with. How many pearls have you cast before piggish users in the past, only to have them ground to powder?
The servant Paul the apostle was more than a new herald in the order of the day. He stirred up old systems and disturbed demonic religious strongholds. You must be ready to "power up" for years of opposition and hoards of religious factions and fractures of truth!
The past years of agony have been hard soldierly-like boot camp. 
Elite forces training.
It will not go away. 
You must simply learn that it is My duty to do the fighting for you.
Just be certain that you are only speaking, ONLY SPEAKING, what I have told you to.
Speak Nothing more and Speak Nothing less."
 
THIS IS A TIME IN THE KINGDOM 
WHERE WE ALL MUST SOBERLY COUNT THE COST 
OF WHAT WE ARE ABOUT TO STEP INTO ON EVERY LEVEL.
 
If there is not the peace of the Holy Spirit resting on those whom you are involved with, don't move into anything until the peace comes.
Gatherings and movements can feel real exciting and purposeful, until conflict, control, and competition show up.
The apostolic and prophetic saints in Acts, fasted, ministered to the Lord, and then the Holy Spirit spoke. 
We have all learned many a painful lesson in the past from experiences of over planning, programming, and hurrying to help God out!
 
To everything there is a season, a time. 
Until you have a full green light, don't move. 
 It will keep you from having to backtrack and...
 …It trains you in humility.
 
Familiar Friends OR RELATIONSHIPS?
Ask yourself the following question. 
"Are you simply a familiar with people or are you working in relationship with others and those whom you feel are to move into a more Kingdom minded level of Spiritual intimacy with?"
 
IF YOU SHARE WHAT IS PASSIONATELY BURNING IN YOUR SPIRIT WITH THOSE WHO ONLY "RELATE" ON A CASUAL SPIRITUAL LEVEL THEMSELVES… 
 …YOU WILL BE CONTINUALLY DEVASTATED.
 
Spiritual intimacy can only be as deep as those who spend the time in spiritually intimate worship, waiting, and self-examining dialog with the Father, and in relating to others of a likeminded heart. 
This is not easy for busy human life!
 
"If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves."
Philippians 2: 1-3
 
A PROPHETIC WORD CONCLUSION:
"Hear Me", Cries the Spirit of Holy Grace and Mercy! 
I desire to move upon, in, and through each of you. 
Not one of you alone can endure the onslaughts of evil by standing aloof and silent.
Nor can the most vocal of gifts among you clearly communicate all that I long to express.
Until each one is willing to step into the Holy place of pure relationship with Me and with one another, waiting, crying out, Yes - even waiting until I come and refresh, then the generation waiting in the wings will not fully come forward.
Until it is branded into your spirits that this era in time is for the saving of the lost, the redeeming of the wasted, and the release of My power, of My glory, you will be so very very frustrated by the heaviness that doggedly harasses your soul.
 
What I ordain, I cover. What I command, I give direction to.
Be certain that you have heard what I am saying.
I am fully aware of the weariness and fatigue you have been experiencing.
Heavier than anything you can recall from the past.
 
"Do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you!" 
 1 Peter 4:12
There are many many others globally who are also still wrestling out of the cocoon in new birth and are suffering also. PRAY FOR THEM!
 
Hellish warfare will be a normal activity in the days ahead. 
Unless you harness the power of consistent prayer and train yourselves in regular gatherings of passion in prayer and worship together, you will shrink back into serious doubt, anxiety, bitterness and dread, when the trauma of warfare attacks!!
 
GIVE VOICE TO MY SPIRIT! 
Awaken your mute tongue and give voice to My name, My power and My Kingdom Solutions! No weapon formed against you will ultimately prosper! 
My Spirit longs to declare wonders, to decree Justice, and to destroy darkness with your lips proclaiming from the spirit.
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."  - Isaiah 55:11
Speak out in truth and in praise and I will step into your midst with the peace you have been craving, and groping for. 
 
Quickly! Enter in before you reflect and exchange ideas. 
After I am given My rightful place of honor and adoration, then I will speak and give you clear vision and direction.”
 
"In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I will lay my requests before you, 
And wait in expectation."  -Psalm 5:3
 
My friends, this is a word from the Lord and I encourage you to heed the word of the lord and not immediately go to the assessing and the sanitization of what some would do with a prophetic word from the Lord. He’ll show you what parts aren’t accurate or what parts aren’t fitting for you right now.
But the general overview of this word is that the Lord is calling us to a place of battle, a place of prayer, a place of growth, a place of tenacity, letting go of bitterness where we feel unfairly treated, where we feel like life will never get better.
These are the things that God is saying! If you want to continue to say these things, then you stand in the way of me being the ONE who is the Redeemer of time.
We need to have a challenge to each believer in the Body of Christ, each of you who are servants of the Lord. Every one of you!
Every person listening has an assignment from the Father at this time to tell someone else about the Lord to tell others who are feeling weak and discouraged, angry or bitter, that the need to be understanding that they are called to now grow up into the faith and to not just listen to what other people say, not be inundated with media and false narratives and lies about what Jesus says in His Word.
It is time to stand in the place of trust and ask God to strengthen us in every way, yielding every ounce of our being into His care. 
I bless you today in the mightiest and most powerful and Supreme, dynamic name there is ever to be, and that is the name of Jesus Christ the Messiah. We know that God is Sovereign!

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
 
Jeremiah was known as the 'weeping prophet’. 
Some say he was called at the age of 17. 
 
He was called to reprove a crumbling nation. The Israelite nation. 
Unfortunately for them they didn’t  listen to him. But during his day, people were so hardened by sin that they neither believed God nor feared him. They seem to find Jeremiah's constant warning of judgment overbearing and frankly, annoying.
 
It's the same with us now. 
Those that hear our warning find us obnoxious! 
But as believers we are supposed to follow God's instructions to warn a lost and dying world of upcoming judgment. Even though most are not listening, we still have to persevere in courageously speaking truth in order to rescue some from the terrible judgment that will inevitably come. If we are so easily discouraged at fighting the rude behavior of our peers what are we going to do, when we are confronted by demons? 
 
The LORD rebukes Jeremiah for his impatience, in Jeremiah 12:5 saying, 
“If you have raced with men on foot
