The_Spirit_of_God_Speaksbnvkn.jpg

By Mary Lindow

TODAY I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE TRUTH AND REALITY OF HOW GOD, AND WHY GOD USES DREAMS AND VISIONS, WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE, WORDS OF WISDOM AND PROPHETIC WORDS TO DIRECT US, ENCOURAGE US, AND TO PROTECT US!

I’m also sharing a very recent dream that I had and how it confirmed God’s plan for a local church that Steve and I were invited to minister at.

SO OFTEN PEOPLE THINK THE LORD ONLY SPEAKS TO “SPECIFIC PEOPLE” AND THAT HE CANNOT SPEAK TO THEM IN THE SAME WAY. 
So, I think we need to understand clearly as believers what the Lord said in Jeremiah 33:3.

‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

He also says in the book of James if any man lacks wisdom let him ask of God who will give to all liberally and will not withhold it!

The one big catchall is that people think God‘s going to speak to them at the same time or in the same way or in the same fashion he has previously, and so when they don’t hear from him the same way all the time, they wonder somehow if they’ve missed it.

 

TIME AND TIME AGAIN THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT NIGHT VISIONS AND DREAMS THAT THE LORD USED TO INSTRUCT HIS PEOPLE, AND TO PROTECT THEM! 

Here are a few Bible verses that give examples of biblical dreams, provide guidance on how to verify the source of this type of revelation, and show God's purpose in using them.

Amos 3:7 – "Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets."

Daniel 1:17 – "To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds."

Job 33:14-15 – "For God does speak—now one way, now another—though no one perceives it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds.
 

ONE THING ABOUT HEARING FROM THE LORD IS THIS. 

There has to be an element of the Word of God undergirding anything you receive in a vision, in a dream, or through other people who are used in the prophetic gifts of word of knowledge and word of wisdom! It is out of the word of God that prophecy then is solidified!

 

I’M GOING TO SHARE WITH YOU ONE OF MY MOST RECENT EXPERIENCES 
to encourage you to know that as we act upon what the Holy Spirit shows us, he can then move corporately. He likes to move among groups of people!

 

STEVE AND I WERE RECENTLY INVITED TO SPEAK AT A WONDERFUL FELLOWSHIP NOT TOO FAR FROM OUR HOME IN A CITY CALLED BRIGHTON, COLORADO. 
So, we were praying about it and told the pastor and his wife that we wanted to pray first before we committed to saying we would come, because, we wanted to make sure what we were supposed to share, and to be sure it was the right timing.

We had gone to bed one evening and I had gotten back out of bed up to get some water and was just restless and not ready to sleep. I read for a while and finally got tired enough to go back to bed and fell into a deep sleep.
 

I THEN HAD A VERY VIVID DREAM. 
In the dream I was standing up behind a pulpit or podium, and Steve was standing there with me and I looked out into the congregation and I saw a young man who was very tall and had on a gray colored t-shirt, he had a beard and had a baseball cap on and was wearing black framed glasses. He was halfway between the congregation and about six seats in and he was to my right as I was facing him.
 

AS I WAS STANDING THERE, I FELT THE HOLY SPIRIT STANDING BEHIND ME. 
He said to me, “People want to receive their prayer language. If you will tell people exactly what I want you to say, I’m going to move on and within them today. They’re going to experience the fullness of my joy with their prayer language by speaking in tongues.” 

So, in the dream I said these words, “I had a dream and the Holy Spirit showed me that they were people here who would be moved on by the Holy Spirit and will receive the blessing of praying tongues, and there are many here who have been afraid of it or who have not been able to get a release for some reason when they were prayed for. As I stand here and begin to pray the Holy Spirit‘s going to come on you in a very gentle and soft presence, and we’re just going to all lift our voices and in that moment and you’re going to be able to be released to pray in tongues.”  

In the dream, I was watching the young man and I pointed out him and I said,  “You are one who has been wanting the Lord to bless you with speaking of tongues aren’t you” and he raised his hand up and was crying and he said “yes”, and in that moment I just said to him that the Holy Spirit is gently touching you right now, just begin to open your mouth and begin to speak, and he did! He immediately began to pray in this beautiful prayer language and then the whole place erupted with people cheering and crying and the room was filled with the Spirit of God and the whole room was lifted up in worship and praise to God with people praying in tongues and laughing joyfully. There was lots of crying and worship, because they could feel the love and kindness of the Lord everywhere.

 

I THEN WENT BACK TO SLEEP AND SLEPT DEEPLY I GUESS, BECAUSE WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE MORNING I WAS AWARE THAT I HAD SLEPT LONG AND HARD.
Steve was already up and was drinking coffee and reading, so I told him about the dream and that the Holy Spirit had said that there were people at this church (the church’s name is “Fearless Church”) that had been wanting to receive their prayer language and speak in tongues, but they just had not had the release, or, anyone help them with that. So I told him that the Holy Spirit said if we will tell them that the Holy Spirit said that there were those to be filled today, the Lord would honor it and he would do a great and precious thing in that service.

 

NOW, WE HAD NOT YET BEEN IN THIS COUPLE’S NEW CHURCH FACILITY BEFORE BECAUSE WE HAD KNOWN THEM FROM THEIR OLDER BUILDING LOCATION.

When we walked in, it was exactly like the building that I saw in my dream which was amazing, because I didn’t even realize it until we walked in, so I knew this was definitely the time and the place for what God was wanting to do with this special meeting.

After very beautiful worship, Steve got up and began to share his message and was teaching. I was just kind of looking around and then paying attention to what Steve was sharing and you could begin to feel this calm and peace come over all of us. 

 

STEVE SHARED ABOUT THE LOVE OF THE FATHER AND ABOUT HOW MUCH GOD IS CALLING US TO A PLACE OF GREATER HUNGER FOR HIS PRESENCE.

As he began to wind up that part of the message, I joined him on the platform and began to share about what words of knowledge and prophetic ministry, (what they were), and as I looked out into the congregation, there was the guy halfway down the middle to the right about six seats in that I had seen in my dream.  He had on the exact same gray T-shirt, he had the beard he had the black glasses and he was very tall.

 

I JUST BEGAN TO ACT OUT AND SPEAK EXACTLY WHAT I SAW IN THE DREAM THAT THE LORD HAD GIVEN TO ME AND I SAID THE EXACT WORDS, and sure enough this young man lifts up his hand and we began to lift our voices and he was immediately overwhelmed with the power of God, and began to speak out in his prayer language.

 

WE BEGAN TO TELL OTHER PEOPLE TO BEGIN TO LIFT THEIR VOICES 
and do the same thing, and the entire room began to speak out in their tongues or they were praising God or just praying in English, and some people were praising in Spanish, but for a long time there were many people were just spontaneously being filled with the Holy Spirit and speaking with the evidence of tongues in languages they had never spoken.
 

NOW, THIS LED TO A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF JOY
AND ALL WERE SHOCKED AND IN AWE AT THE PRESENCE OF GOD
SUDDENLY OVERWHELMING THEIR CONGREGATION!

 They had been through a very difficult time since they had had such lockdown and restriction problems and pressure from the local government. There had been a lot of grief and death and a lack of continuity in the people. It seemed as if the Holy Spirit just wanted to come in and bring this peace and hope to them.

 

NOT TOO FAR AFTER THAT THEN, WE BEGAN TO MINISTER IN THE PROPHETIC GIFTS OF WORD OF KNOWLEDGE AND WORD OF WISDOM.
People stayed for an additional full hour! We did not ask them to do this!  They were hungry to be loved, they were hungry to be at peace, and they were like gentle lambs receiving the word of the Lord, even some words that were not easy to receive.  But the atmosphere was primed, simply by a dream that the Holy Spirit had given to me, and then asking us to obey him and act on what we had seen and heard in the dream.

 

WHAT I’M SAYING ABOUT ALL OF THIS IS THAT,
SOMETIMES IT TAKES JUST A DREAM OR A VISION OR A THOUGHT
THAT COMES TO YOUR MIND WHILE YOU’RE GOING ABOUT YOUR DAILY BUSINESS.

It is a catalyst then that the Holy Spirit can use to open the door to a sweeter or greater move of God in a meeting or a gathering, or in a coffee shop, depending on where the Lord happens to have you go.

He knows exactly what to do in every situation that we are sent into, and knowing the timing of the Lord was right for us to go minister to this body of believers, was all because of the fruit of prayer.

 

I NOW WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SHARE OR UPDATE YOU
ABOUT SOMETHING THAT THE LORD HAD ME SHARE 
A FEW MONTHS AGO REGARDING CANADA.

I will include the link right below for you to go read or listen to the entire word again, but again, when the Holy Spirit begins to speak he does confirm these things.

LINK: https://tinyurl.com/xzk2hvh8

WORD FOR CANADA STARTS AT MINUTE MARKER 11:34

 

MANY OF YOU ARE AWARE OF THE THINGS GOING ON AT THE CANADIAN BORDER AND OF COURSE, THE ENTIRE GLOBE IS FIGHTING TYRANNY. 

In this prophetic word the Lord had me share something that I did not understand at the time, but I knew that I needed to deliver the word AT that time. Now in review, it is happening and coming to pass.

 

HERE’S WHAT THAT WORD SAID.

“Canada will experience one of its most prosperous seasons ever known, for a short season.

 The Lord would have Canada know that they must deal fairly with the wealth that they will produce and pay back the First Native families, and with Godly equity. 

If this is not addressed with wisdom and integrity, Canada will have to pass through the sorrows of disobedience.

Canadian Intercessors are being awakened and called up to stand in the place of prayer for its leaders and tribes.

Now is the time for soberness, It is not a time for silliness and laughter. 

It is a sober day, with a command for sober prayers. 

 "Accordingly then, let us not sleep, as the rest do, but let us keep wide awake (alert, watchful, cautious, and on our guard) and let us be sober (calm, collected, and circumspect)". - 1 Thessalonians 5:6 

“So get up! Stand UP! Be Purposeful,” says the Lord!

How do you not know that through your borders I can bring a North American Wave of Justice and Restoration?” 

 

As you have just heard or have just read, the Lord knew these events were going to take place on the border of the United States and Canada way before I ever spoke it out.
I am certain that the Lord spoke these words or similar words to other men and women of God.

 

MONTHS AGO HE BREATHED THESE WORDS OUT SO THAT OTHERS MIGHT HEAR THEM AND PRAY ABOUT THEM.
I believe that when the Lord gives a word especially specific to any nation, it is first a call to prayer and repentance. From that then, the outbreak of moves of God can take place.

 

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO NOT FEAR THE SUPERNATURAL. 
If you are grounded in the Word of God and a person filled with the spirit, God is going to speak to your spirit and instruct you in the way you should go. He is not going to talk to your mind, because you will talk yourself out of anything that takes risk or costs you laying down your own intellectual reckoning.

 

WE ARE LIVING IN A TIME WHERE HEARING FROM GOD  WILL LITERALLY SAVE YOUR LIFE. 
It is not a time to hope we have everybody else hear from God, and tell us what to do.
I am almost certain that anything I share today is something the Lord has been stirring in the hearts of the majority of you that are listening. And it is confirming things deep in your spirit that you needed to have sorted out in order for you to proceed.

 

MY PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY IS THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THERE IS A STIRRING IN THE HEART OF GOD TO MOVE UPON HIS PEOPLE IN A DYNAMIC AND EXTREME POWER THAT SHAKES THE CORE OF EVIL IN THE WORLD.

It will cause a great upheaval, because darkness resists light. 

But light penetrates past darkness. 

 

YOU ARE A LIGHT IN THIS WORLD, BECAUSE OF THE LAMP OF CHRIST INSIDE OF YOU. 

Take the bushel basket off and let that light shine.

Yes it may cost you something.

If it doesn’t cost you something to be strong in the Lord then we are pretty much guaranteed to be lukewarm and passive.

 

THESE ARE THE DAYS THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR YOU AND I.

He planned for you to be here today in this very hour in this very moment. He has words to speak out of your mouth that are his words that will help break the darkness over peoples lives that have no ability to understand how captive they are to the narratives of the world.

 

Don’t underestimate the power of God’s words coming out of your mouth when you are talking to someone. 

It takes just one anointed obedient act to set a captive free.
It takes just one obedient act done while stepping out in courage to open the ears of someone who has been deafened to truth most of their life.

If the words are rejected, understand that a seed went inside of them and was planted. Someone else may come along and water that seed, and someone else may harvest what comes from that.

But in the end you were obedient to plant the seed, and all of the joy and the glory and honor of a new soul or someone set free, goes to Jesus.

 

Psalm 31:24 is what I want to speak over each of you today!!

TAKE COURAGE!

“Be strong and take heart, 

All you who hope in the LORD.”

“DETERMINE NOW TO NOT LOOK BACKWARDS” - Everything Will Be Brought Into The Light - Specific Prophetic Insight

Determine_Now8mxej.jpg

 Prophetic Insights From the Holy Spirit

through Mary Lindow

 

Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'?

I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields!

They are ripe for harvest.  - John 4:35

 

 

PLANT YOUR FEET AND DETERMINE NOT TO LOOK BACKWARD.

The enemy will assault you to press you backwards.

Have I not said, "without a prophetic vision the people perish and go backwards?” 

I am ready to revisit areas that have advanced my purposes but retreated at the day of battle. 

 

THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE SHAKING OF GOVERNMENTS. 

There must be a confrontation of governments. My government on earth is arising and causing entire regions to shake. I am restoring and rising up leaders. 

 

IN THE PAST SEASON, MY GIFT WITHIN LEADERS COULD NOT FIND ITS PLACE IN MY GOVERNMENT. However, now I am causing governments and gifts to divinely “find one another" and to connect.

 

This is creating great shakings from region to region throughout this land.

This alignment is creating a shift in civil government.

 

TODAY IS A DAY OF BREAKING OFF THAT WHICH CAUSED MY LEADERS TO RETREAT FROM THE VISITATIONS OF THE PAST. 

Many advanced and then quit and retreated! 

 

NOW IS A TIME TO ADVANCE! 

I am restoring many of you to lead this advance. 

There will be great connections occurring in My Body in this advance. 

This will be the beginning of confronting sorceries, astrology, and witchcraft, which have produced control. I am sending you forward and I am releasing supernatural wisdom. This wisdom will cast down the sorcerers, astrologers, and those practicing witchcraft throughout regions. 

 

LOVE AND CONFIDENCE IS ARISING IN MY BODY. 

The past three years have been a time of restoring a level of worship, humility, meekness and purity in your calling and boldness in the choices you make! 

 

FROM WORSHIP YOU WILL NOW MOVE INTO A NEW SUPERNATURAL DIMENSION. 

Do not fear this call to the supernatural!

The Baal systems of this nation will begin to strengthen to keep my new refreshing strategies from forming and advancing in your region.

Do not fear these systems, but keep confronting through prayer, the powers that have attached themselves to the structures of governments in your region. 

 

I WILL MAKE YOU INTO A SUPERNATURAL PEOPLE

WHO CAN RISE UP AND OVERTHROW

THAT WHICH HAS CONTROLLED YOU IN THE PAST.

 

MY PEOPLE ARE BECOMING A NEW, SHARP THRESHING INSTRUMENT.

This threshing is producing shaking.

This shaking is releasing harvest.

The harvest will not rot in the fields of neglect or laziness. 

 

THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A POWERFUL CONSUMING FIRE. 

When these occult structures are overthrown, consuming fire will sweep through this nation. And you will set my name upon the high places!

My all-consuming light will address the idols and temples of religious shame and control. 

 

I HAVE GIVEN SO MANY WHO CALL THEMSELVES “MY ANOINTED” MUCH, MUCH, TIME TO DEAL WITH THE HIDDEN SINS.

Sins in their marriages.

Sins of competition, jealousy over who is used by me, and harsh verbal words of shame used to control and break the will of another servant in my calling.

Some have called themselves my servants but have only served their own purposes in a place of self-comfort and self-promotion, letting others do the labor in prayer.

 

 Jeremiah 7:24 says,

“But they did not listen or pay attention;

instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. 

THEY WENT BACKWARD AND NOT FORWARD.” 

 

 

DEAL WITH YOUR WEAK AND COWARDLY ATTEMPTS AT HOLINESS, THROUGH REPENTANCE AND HONESTY OF HEART BEFORE ME AND OTHERS WHOM YOU HAVE BEEN WALKING IN FELLOWSHIP WITH.

THE DAYS OF PERSONAL AMBITION AND HIERARCHY ARE NUMBERED.

 

 

MY FIRE MUST BE IN YOUR HEART!

The fear of the Divine Supernatural is to be removed from you.

Many have fallen into fear over the supernatural spirits that have surrounded them. Therefore, they have retreated in their prayer life and fallen into passivity.

 

 1 Samuel 12:24 says,

“But be sure to honor the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things He has done for you 

 

THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW DAY! PLANT YOUR FEET.

The window of opportunity for change is short and sweet.

 

THIS WILL BE A TIME THAT NIGHT WATCHES ARE RE-FORMED IN YOUR REGION, AND I WILL REVISIT YOU IN THE NIGHT WATCH.

I will visit my bride as I described in the Song of Solomon and knock upon her door. This is not a time for hesitation.

Night watches will spring forth across the nations.

Once again these watches will open the door to me, and I will come again.

 

Therefore, I am calling watchmen to rise up and cry out day and night

for my bride to be positioned near the door of opportunity in these lands.

Be positioned, ready to open the door of opportunity in your nation.

 

MY BRIDE MUST NOT HESITATE TO OPEN THE DOOR

SINCE HARVEST IS WAITING TO COME THROUGH THE DOOR

INTO THE STOREHOUSE OF MY KINGDOM!

 

MY WILL HAS BEEN ACTIVATED ON EARTH.

I AM ADVANCING.

ADVANCE WITH ME.

I WILL LEAD YOU INTO WARFARE.

 

MANY HAVE GROWN FEARFUL OF CONFRONTING THE ENEMY.

I CAME TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE ENEMY.

I confronted both legalism and liberalism.

I say rise up in worship that you might confront.

Without confrontation, your enemy, the legalist, will gain much strength against you and narrow the boundaries of your freedom.

If you will align yourselves properly and allow your gift to work within my government, I will guide you like a troop into warfare and make you victorious. 

 

WORSHIP IS ARISING. FROM WORSHIP, YOU WILL WAR!

For a sound of war is coming into the heart of my people.

 

John 4:23 says, 

A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality), for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers 

 

DO NOT GO BACKWARDS. 

Take off the old garments that would hinder you.

My advance is now in the earth.

YOU HAVE BEEN BLINDED FROM THE SUPPLY OF THE FUTURE!

 

A NEW SEER ANOINTING IS ABOUT TO ARISE IN MY PEOPLE.

What you couldn't see in the past, you will now see.

You've tried to connect and align with some, but now I will release a new anointing for connecting.

You will see strategies of supply that have been hidden from you by occult powers. 

 

The seer anointing is coming back into your region.

My people's eyes are about to see their supply.

Advance is now in the earth.

Open your eyes and advance with me! 

 

YOU WILL KNOW ME AS THE GREAT PROVIDER.

YOU WILL KNOW ME AS THE GREAT HEALER.

YOU WILL SEE ME BRING FULFILLMENTS

AND ANSWERS TO MY MANY PROMISES!

 

YES! 

You will now begin to release a manifestation of My joy of release from captivity from region to region throughout the land and in all nations crying out for more of Me! 

 

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. 

There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, 

For the old order of things has passed away."  - Revelation 21:4

 

Let’s pray about this word from the Lord and share it with others!

Forerunners_Unifiers92e25.jpg

 By Mary Lindow Through The Holy Spirit

 

TODAY’S PODCAST IS GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING ONE!

What I’m sharing on this specific podcast is about a vision that I had when my husband and I were first engaged. I was staying in his parent’s home and my husband had his own house about 10 miles away. We spent a lot of time talking together and praying and just contemplating what our future would look like in the Lord, and how he was going to use us, when Steve would come over to spend time with me after work.

One evening I had gone into the living room of my in-laws to play the piano and worship and sing to the Lord, and while I was worshiping Him and enjoying being in His presence, I had what would be described as a screen being dropped out in front of my eyes take place, and I had a very visual picture to watch or as the Bible would call it, a vision.

I SAW MYSELF RUNNING ACROSS SOME SEMI-ROCKY LAND and Steve was behind me. He was trying to direct a group of individuals to stay in line and be in unity together.

All of us had what looked to be like a stretchy headband wrapped around our heads and across our foreheads. Attached on the front of these were round lights like miner’s lamps. Some of lights on the people in the line where Steve was trying to get them to come into unity and walk together would flicker and not come on brightly. Others were very bright and consistently steady.

I was running ahead like a scout and the word “forerunner” came into my mind as I was running ahead. I turned around and looked at what Steve was doing and he was trying to stop these individuals from elbowing each other and fighting over whose theology was the most correct.

 

ABOVE THE HEADS OF THESE INDIVIDUALS I NOTED THAT THERE WERE DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH ORGANIZATIONAL NAMES AND ALSO NONDENOMINATIONAL TITLES.

I turned back around and continued my scouting and forerunning and was jogging at a relaxed pace, but I knew I was heading towards something in front of me that I needed to get to.

The path had embedded rocks and bumps that I had to avoid so I wouldn’t trip. The lamp or miner’s light strapped to my forehead kept a bright light steadily beaming in front of me.

Suddenly, in front of me, was a large chasm or a gap and I had to stop and pull back so I wouldn’t fall headlong into the huge gap.

There was no possible human way to run and jump over it and I was at a dead stop staring over the edge. Intuitively, I knew I needed to get to the other side and that there was something very important for me to engage in and be a part of.

But! I didn’t see a ladder or a bridge long enough or safe enough in any direction, to try to cross over with.

 

I Heard A Voice In The Vision Tell Me To Take A Step Of Faith, and that as I walked forward, not in my own strength, not in my own might or power, but in the spirit, that I would make it safely to the other side.

I remember feeling hesitant and thinking I needed to warn Steve.

I turned around and told him I’m going to take a leap of faith to get to the other side. He looked at me and seem to understand what I was doing and turned around and tried to tell the other individuals that they were going to have to lean upon God‘s power and might and supernatural ability, to get them all to the other side. I once again turned around and backed up and took a running leap across this wide chasm. I was immediately on the other side and waited for Steve.

 

I REALIZED THAT I HAD TO DO THIS ON MY OWN WITH THE LORD, and not depend upon Steve to get me to where the Lord wanted me to be. Nor could I get him there. We were each responsible to trust in the Lord with all of our heart.

It was as if I was lifted back over the chasm for a moment so I could observe what was taking place with Steve and the others.

Several of the individuals who were irritated that others were not listening to their great rhetoric and interpretation of things, began to break loose and run forward while telling everyone how they were going to make it across the gap/chasm. Several of them literally walked off the edge of the cliff into the chasm due to not paying attention, and fell completely to the bottom.

 

OTHERS WERE FIGHTING AND SEVERAL WERE IN FEAR AND WOULD NOT ATTEMPT A LEAP OF FAITH.

They wanted to build a structure or devise a plan to get them there. Their lights were flickering very low by this point.

Steve finally said, “I have to go”, and he too, took a running leap of faith and threw his arms upward, eyes closed, trusting in the Lord’s provision to get him over the chasm. He met me standing on the other side of this wide gap.

 

IMMEDIATELY WE BECAME MEMBERS OF A LARGE ARMY.

Everyone was dressed in a white robe and had different colors of sashes to indicate which battalion or team of army members they were marching with.

Everyone’s headband with the lamp on the front of it was brilliantly white and the lamps were shining intensely! Everyone was in order and marching in unison, with thousands of members.

 

OVERHEAD THERE WAS SOMETHING LIKE ARTILLERY FIRE TAKING PLACE IN THE SKY. 

It seemed as if there were missiles and different kinds of weaponry clashing above us, but we were all marching calmly and firmly in unity and we knew we were marching under the direction of our Leader, King, Jesus Christ.

 

Shortly after this surprising vision I “came to myself” again and sat there and pondered what I had seen, for a very long time.

Steve and I have often talked about this and have often shared the details with each other again as we l pray and ask the Lord why he would show it to us at that time, and what we were being prepared for.

 

CHRISTIAN ALLEGIANCES ARE  “STRANGE AND STRAINED AFFAIRS”

Many denominations and non-denominational groups as well as progressive and New Age influenced churches have chosen to embrace a corporate world structure and more eagerly, “hunker down” into a “murky version” of the word of God.

Many have embraced the cultural pressure to push away pure living, and interpret the word of God to fit the current day embracing of immoral sexuality and freethinking on many levels.

 

THE CURRENT BLATHERING INTELLECTUALS OF THE ERA mock and criticize those who choose to live a morally and biblically pure and truthful application of God’s word.

You know, It just not "cool or hip" right now to not be a little edgy and nasty!

 

I believe that in the vision that I had, those who were elbowing and arguing and posturing while on their way to what they felt was an event (that would be in fact an important moment in the collective body of Christ), these individuals had “dimmed” their approach to allowing their minds to be renewed and cleansed by the word of God. I believe the headbands that weakly flickered with the mining lights were symbols of what they fed their minds with, weakening their discernment.

 

THOSE WHO WERE FOCUSED ON HAVING THEIR MINDS RENEWED by the word of God, being illuminated by his word and having their minds renewed had no wavering or angst taking place.

Those that were fighting and pontificating the most, had the dimming lamps that flickered and seemed to short out, and they insisted that adaptations and adjustments could be made according to the way that they interpreted faith and how to walk with Christ.

THEY REFUSED TO LISTEN TO ANYONE ELSE AND THEY REFUSED TO HAVE ANY KIND OF UNITY, BUT NEEDED TO PUSH FORWARD TO PROVE THEIR POINT.

 

When Steve kept telling them in the vision that they had to be unified and that they had to be humble and to humbly care for one another as brothers in the Lord, they became all the more enraged, condescending, and began to rush ahead in arrogance and with great irritability.

 

ONE INDIVIDUAL WAS WALKING BACKWARDS lecturing everyone and literally fell over the cliff edge into the chasm, screaming all the way down.

 

SO WHERE ARE WE?

Anyone who is doing all they know to do to have a close walk with the Lord right now at this time, who desires to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the churches and us individually, is fully aware of the deceptive clouds of wickedness and filth hovering over the world.

 

LYING HAS BECOME AN HONORED AND CUNNING ATTRIBUTE in order to confuse, control, and break other human beings.

Sadly, many in the faith have chosen to become rabid political activists to the point that it’s all that they devour and think about day and night.

They shun anyone who will not listen to them and certainly have embraced on many levels, the message of a “one world unified socialist lifestyle”. This is where a great delusion has been allowed to deceive many. Second Thessalonians 2:11 warned us about this!

“Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false.”

 

THERE IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF GODLESSNESS IN THE LAST DAYS

In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 we have quite the strong warning about how it was going to roll out and unfold. (I think that we are already there.)

“So! Understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 

For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, but treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but they deny its power. Avoid such people.”

 

WOW! AVOID THESE PEOPLE?

These are strong and difficult words to hear aren’t they?

 

When I was forerunning ahead in the vision, I believe it was a indicator of a prophetic forerunner seeing the things to come as well as seeing what God was asking of his people, as the world became more corrupt and dark, and decisions that were difficult that were coming, were about to be made.

 

THE ENTIRE TIME I WAS RUNNING I WAS WATCHING AND LOOKING TO MAKE SURE THAT MY FEET WOULD NOT TRIP, and when I came to the edge of the chasm I knew that I had to completely abandon myself, to everything that I could possibly fashion or create in my mind, leaving behind the hopeful use of any personal skills to get to the other side of where God wanted me to be.

 

THERE WAS NO POSSIBILITY TO RUN AND JUMP AND MAKE IT ON MY OWN.

I had to abandon myself to the fact that God said to take a leap of faith. That I must trust Him spirit, soul, and body, to be moved into position in His kingdom where I would be in unity marching with His great army of servants.

Somehow in my spirit, in the vision, I knew that Steve was going to be okay and also knew that we had to individually make a choice to trust God completely with our lives, no matter what difficulties we were about to face.

There was great sadness on Steve’s face when he turned around and knew he had to now leave those who were rushing ahead and jumping or still arguing on the edge of the chasm, and that it was his time to risk everything and take a step of faith out into the unknown.

The minute Steve arrived on the other side of the chasm with me we were side-by-side marching to the sound of thousands of feet in unison and voices praising God. There was a look of determination and sobriety on every face that was in every battalion of people, but everyone knew why they were there, and what they were being assigned to.

The flashes of light and military type of war going on above us was constant but no one broke rank and everyone was marching in the battalion that they were a part of. Praise and powerful prayers were coming out of all of all of the people’s mouths as they raised their hands forward in honor of what was up ahead, which I believe was King Jesus himself.

 

In Joel 2:11 it says

“The Lord utters his voice before his army,

For his camp is exceedingly great;

He who executes his word is powerful.

For the day of the Lord is great and very awesome;

Who can endure it?”

 

NOW, I WILL NOT PRESUME TO TRY TO UNPACK ALL THAT IS GOING ON IN THE EARTH TODAY, nor will I say that I understand all of the applications of the book of Revelation or End Time thoughts.

What I will say is that the Lord has told us that the difficult days would come and that antichrists and deceivers would rise up from among us, even trying to deceive the very elect, God’s own precious, set apart children.

 

1 John 4:3 tells this clearly!

Every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God.

This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.

 

You see, This is a time where God is already showing those who have ears to hear what He is saying and that we are being called to take great steps and leaps of trust and faith in Him, like we have never, EVER done before.

 

IT’S SCARY OUT THERE IN THE WORLD, and tyrants and wicked men and women defy and mock anything that interferes with their corruption and filth. They are absolutely not interested in the sound of the voice of the Lord or in his people challenging them. But this is where our faith and trust in God must exceed and excel.

 

It is a time where you and I must continually and constantly renew our minds by intentionally reading and listening to the word of God.

 

HOW MANY TIMES A DAY DO PEOPLE CHECK THE SOCIAL MEDIA UPDATES and news feeds on their phones and I Pads? Is this where the light of Christ is found and minds are renewed?

No. It’s a place where distractions and debates and the opinions of man drown out truth and any trust in God.

 

RUN AWAY FROM THE PACK

Believers! Get a firm pace going in your pursuit of the truth!

Be aware of those snares and rocks placed there to intentionally get you to change course or quit and become part of the world’s narratives!

 

There’s no need to figure out what you are going to do

in tough times if you stay close to the word and voice of God!

 

He absolutely WILL guide you, and His word IS the lamp for your feet and the light that will keep your path lit up as you journey through dark days!

 

Psalm 119:105 

"Your word is a lamp to my feet
, AND a light to my path.

 

IN CLOSING, I ENCOURAGE YOU TO ALLOW THE LORD, TO DO A DEEP PURGING AND SEARCHING OF YOUR HEART.

Don’t push away where he is trying to get you to give up your own, personal opinions about how things are to be done in a time where recklessness and chaos are rewarded.

Get quiet and be still in his presence, and ask him to tell you exactly what to do.

 

HE WILL DIRECT YOU THROUGH HIS WORD!

He will bring people across your path who are either like-minded or who will point the way to absolute sustaining truth.

Stay away from those who are so full of themselves, and who love the sound of their own voices, so that there is no room for tenderness and dialogue for a soul that is hungering after God.

 

YOU AND I ARE RIGHT NOW, A PART OF THE GREAT ARMY OF GOD.

We are to march to the sound of His voice and have our voices raised in praise of who He is and in declaration that we are of another Kingdom.

Even if it seems as if nothing is changing or that God is at a distance, we are not to walk by how we feel, or how things look around us.

We are to be determined to be in union and in communication by the spirit with the Spirit of the living God.

 

Ask the Lord to draw you close to him.

Choose to run after him!

 

Don’t wait for others to lead you or guide you to answer the questions that you have in your heart right now. Jesus by the Holy Spirit is able to speak clearly to you and he is able to give you direction, because, He IS the great I AM.

He IS wisdom.

He IS light!

And, He has promised…

…To never leave us in the dark.

 

Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world.

Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,

But will have the light of life.” - John 8:12

A_change_a0i0l.jpg

By Mary Lindow through the Inspiration of the Holy Spirit

 

My spiritual discernment tells me...
... That a change in the spiritual climate is coming.

Yes.

There ABSOLUTELY is risk associated with the shifting of your focus, choices and standards.

For some, there is risk that the newness that God is bringing will also bring an ending to their way of doing things, an ending to the security of the past.

For others there is risk that they will be the people called to forge into new territory in the power of the Spirit, to announce and help build and steward the newness that God is bringing.

I often ponder (at times I stew and pace) about where the church is in this post-modern culture and where it desperately needs to be heading.

I feel a change in the air.
I sense a new freshness and direction being orchestrated by the Lord in His church, meaning His people. I’m sure not smart enough to know what all that means nor am I able to predict the future, but the signs are there.

My spiritual discernment tells me...
... that a change in the spiritual climate IS coming.

I’m not yet sure whether this is a storm or the just the rains after a drought, but I have an inkling that it may be the wind of opportunity that promises a new beginning that I hear blowing. It may just be the fresh winds of the Spirit that will bring the “showers of spiritual blessings” that people used to sing about, but most likely.... this is not the case.

 

Our world and our culture are changing rapidly all around us.

With new communication technology and increasing global interaction, we face a world that will be absolutely different from the one which we have lived in for so long.

Our own society is changing.

There are new ways of thinking and new ways of doing things.(Think self driving cars and drones delivering pizzas!)

The year were are in just sped through and was just a date on a calendar, but that date caused us to take a long look at where we have been and where we are going. And, when we looked closely, the changes unfolding all around us have surprised us, or at least it surprised me!

Of course, some want to see changes, ANY changes, as threatening.

And so they move into a doomsday mode and adopt a negative view (Think the Jonah Syndrome). They fight most any kind of change as a change for the worse.
There ARE things to be concerned about WITH some changes. But where some people see only problems, others see opportunities.

Change can be threatening, scary, and hard!
HARD
H A R D
WORK!

However, the people who study these things say that times of change are the best opportunities for people to respond to God. The uncertainty and discomfort that any major change brings, opens the door to reevaluate your life and ask questions about your purpose and what in your life has meaning.

If that’s true in individuals, I am pretty sure that it’s also true of society. And it’s true of the church.

Studies and Stats show that there is more interest in religion and spirituality in the world at large now than there has been in the last half-century.

Of course, some of that spirituality is of the weird and twisted kind, and certainly not Christian. But, that also tells us that there are opportunities to proclaim the Gospel, in Love, with authentic compassion and yet without compromising.

Honestly speaking, I’m not sure what all that means for the church. The message hasn’t changed, and the truth hasn’t changed, but the world has, and how we speak and express the truth will need to change in order to speak to that world.

New winds are blowing.
The spiritual climate is changing.
The smell of fresh breezes and fresh showers are in the air.
But one thing is certain.

There will be no status quo.

There will be no “going on as usual”.

The changes, are already in process.

We can’t change things just because we decide it should be done friends!

That’s presumption!

If we say we want GOD’S plan(s) for change, we have to get the blueprints from Him. But, we CAN do it as God calls out to us and reveals to us where HE is working in the world. And then, we can do it!

We can RISK as we listen, hear, and respond to that call, as God enables and graces us with the courage it will take to “adjust the rudder” of our ship.

I don’t know about you, but I'm going to be watching closely for the changes in the spiritual weather.

And I’ll be listening carefully so I don't miss the voice of God in the darkness.

If someone asks me about a voice that they may have heard calling their name in the night, I’ll be ready to tell them to say these words.

“Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening."

"The Lord came and stood there and called as he had before, “Samuel, Samuel!”
Samuel said, “Speak, Lord.
I am your servant
and......
I am listening.” -Samuel 3:10

Behind_the_Scenes_best.jpg

~ By Mary Lindow 


"Save me, O God! The water is up to my neck;
I am sinking in deep mud, and there is no solid ground;
I am out in deep water, And the waves are about to drown me.
I am worn out from calling for help, and my throat is aching. I have strained my eyes, looking for your help." ~Psalm 69:1-3 

 

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS GOING ON IN THE HEARTS OF GOD'S PEOPLE! 

Many believers have gone through pain and devastation because of betrayal and disappointment in those with whom they have at one time “walked with” in the Lord. 

“For it is not an enemy who reproaches me;  Then I could bear it.
 
Nor is it one that hates me who has exalted himself against me;

Then I could hide from him.
 

But it was you, a man my equal,
 My companion and my acquaintance.
 We took sweet counsel together,
 And walked to the house of God among the people.”

~Psalm 55:12-14 

 

 LEVELS OF SEPARATION AND DECEPTION 


Church leaders and members or friends often separate. Their unresolved issues and wounds infect others around them. With their tongue and pen, (and Facebook posts) their resentment and bitterness spread in uncontrollable proportions.
Christians in other ministries and relationships receive the bad report and often, they don't even know the people involved but - because they have leaned their ears to hear the suggested and well-placed evil reports, the conversation poisons them like toxic waste in their soul. If unchecked, this becomes a hideous, malignant cancer-like cell eventually damaging their mind and above all, their spiritual discernment.


“Who is wise? He will realize these things.

Who is discerning? He will understand them.

The ways of the LORD are right;

The righteous walk in them, But the rebellious stumble in them."

~Hosea 14:9 

The age-old serpent, the ultimate enemy of our souls, has not lost the art of deception even after centuries! He, even now, can cause God's people, including the sincere ones, to miss the mark if they are willing to only hear one side of a story! 


THE GREAT “OCCUPY SOMETHING” MOVEMENT 

The “frenzied entitlement culture” we are seeing hold their protests as a result of selfishness and feeding upon fear, have begun to reach a newly fevered pitch. 

People are “herding” their way into public venues to protest Whatever they may be angry at in the moment, and mostly remaining ignorant as to what or who is really driving and orchestrating the events, reflects the hardness of heart and disrespect for the needs and lives of those around them, 

This type of behavior is a prime example of even how believers have become “selectively “ hard of hearing when it comes to serving one another, or encouraging one another, or having patience with one another!  

One moment we are asking for forgiveness and prayer, and in nearly the next breath, slanderous retorts are spoken out in anger and those driving the malicious train, mean to use others as their well placed pawns of destruction.


"Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, Fighting and slander,

Along with every form of nastiness." Ephesians 4:31


Once bitter words are spoken or written, they cannot be retracted. Sadly, those who often shout the loudest about being maligned are often the perpetrators of assassinating the characters of those whom have been in disagreement with them or who have possibly warned them about a need for a course correction.

“He who conceals his hatred has lying lips,

And whoever spreads slander is a fool.” Proverbs 10:18


TODAY MANY THINGS HAVE DEGENERATED INTO BLURRED INSIGNIFICANCE  AND UNCERTAINTY. 

The beauty of what God's purpose in His people really is meant to passionately reflect is - missing. Things that are now being said and done do not mean what they did mean originally in His Word. Twisting of truth to fits one’s own idea of God’s will has become acceptable and is often left unchallenged. So many spiritual and scriptural terms are put into motion, but they are not in the same dimension and point of view, which are in the Divine plan! 

The tragedy is that so many well-meaning believers have gone on with the outward appearance of searching for the will of the Lord, and yet they fail to see that the power of His radiant life is missing! 

The Apostle Paul warned us in his letter to Timothy about this…. " This know also that in the last days perilous times shall come… ...Having the form of godliness (true religion) but denying the power there of. "

 

MY HEART IS BROKEN TO SEE THINGS AS THEY ARE HAPPENING ALL AROUND US 

So much is falling short of its original blueprint. There is so much labor and "rallying" being pumped out there into the minds and hearts of people and it is being poured into the “Self Promotion Machine" more than any time in the history of God's people! Yet the toil is ending in heartbreaking disappointment!

Saints, only those devoted to humility and honor can be saved from this deadly poison that lulls those longing to be entertained and pampered into apathy and spiritual powerlessness! 

God's faithful people in this hour should seek Him and that which is upon His heart. What the Lord is doing in this era is so different, and we should be sensitive to Him! 

He is looking for His “People of the Secret Place” in which the power of resurrection may freely function. 

The Apostle Paul said "according to the power that works in us" (Ephesians 3:20b). 

These “People” will have to be men and women who have “seen”! They shall be like "a voice in the wilderness". 


IT IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY CLEAR THAT GOD MUST DO A FRESH THING WITH HIS FOLLOWERS. 

And that actual “thing” is that He is drawing them to seek the Lord Himself and His recognizable presence! Away from the throng,
nearer to the Word, bowed in repentance and prayer. 

The Psalmist said, "When You said oh Lord, Seek My face; My heart said unto You, Your face, Lord will I seek." 

 

WILL YOU SET YOUR HEART TO SEEK HIM? 

Oh that God may find His Davids in this crucial hour that will set their faces towards Him at the command of His voice! Without it, the Human race will continue its fall and decline into further confusion, tragedy, and self-preservation. 

“Man’s goings are of the LORD;

How can a man then understand his own way?” ~ Proverbs 20:2 

It’s easy to say, “give your cares to the Lord and trust Him” when everything in life seems to be going well.  It’s easy to say, “I trust you Lord with everything I own” when bills are paid on time and when you just got a promotion at work. 

However, if God striped you of everything you own; If God told you to leave the very job that’s paying your bills, will you trust the Lord enough to do it?  Will you trust God even when you don’t understand; even when life hurts?  

If God told you to leave the familiar and enter the unfamiliar, will you trust Him? 

For many of you, God has done just that.  

He has taken you from what’s “oh so familiar” and redirected your paths into the unfamiliar.  You don’t understand what’s happening in your life; what to do or where to go.  The only thing you know is that the Lord gave you a word (instruction, a promise, vision, etc.) and the only thing you have to hold on to is that word. 

I understand the feeling; you’re not alone.  


THERE IS ENCOURAGEMENT FOR YOU TODAY. 

Many things happen in our lives that we will never be able to explain or understand because God is orchestrating the events of our lives “behind the scenes” (read Job 1-2). Moreover, we cannot detect God physically (through our senses) and we cannot comprehend His plans. 

“But the hour cometh, and now is, When the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: For the Father seeks such to worship him. God is a Spirit: And they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

~ John 4:23-24


Therefore, since we cannot rely on our perception or our reasoning we must turn to something else that is more reliable if we are going to be able to remain calm in the midst of turmoil, to find rest during the storms of life we must rely on God’s knowledge instead of our own. 


“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, Neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are my ways higher than your ways, And my thoughts than your thoughts.”

~ Isaiah 55:8-9 

 

LET US RUN RIGHT NOW TO THE THRONE OF GRACE AND MERCY!

Now! While our hearts are freshly tenderized and troubled over the recent events in the earth!

Here is something to remember.  Man is fallible; we fall short and at times we’re unable to keep our promises.  Man can give you instructions that are misleading and imperfect. 
With God, none of these things are possible. God keeps His promises, God gives you right instructions according to His perfect will and He won’t mislead you.

No matter how much you don’t understand life as it is right now; no matter how uncomfortable it may seem or how hard it gets, don’t give up. 

If God is with you -  the same God who spoke life into you, the same God who IS and knows the beginning and the end, the same God who knew you before the foundation of this world -is with you, then ask yourself who or WHAT can stand against you.

 

CONSIDER THE SOURCE AND SEEK TO BE OBEDIENT TO THE LORD

Even when you don t understand what God is doing in your life; don’t worry about “this or that” because God has provisions for you.

There is the safe voice of the Father calling us. Let us respond with ears to Hear and hearts that obey.

“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

~Hebrews 4:16

THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS SAYING...


"Be very careful whom you share your treasures with. 

 How many pearls have you cast before piggish souls 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 fracture’s 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.


Nothing more and 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 who 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 in humility.

Acquaintance OR RELATIONSHIP?

 

Ask yourself the following question. 

"Are you simply an acquaintance 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?"


Before I finish with what the Spirit of God would have me share in a final prophetic word, I am impressed to share with you the difference between the two words Acquaintance and Relationship.


Acquaintance 

 1. Somebody who is known slightly rather than intimately. 

 2. Knowledge, usually slight, of somebody or something.

Relationship 

 1. The connection between two or more people or groups and their involvement with each other, especially as regards how they behave and feel toward each other and communicate or cooperate. 

 2. An emotionally close friendship,

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. 

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 the 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, 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 lay my requests before you, 

...And wait in expectation." 

 Psalm 5:3

THE CHALLENGE BEGINS

"I AM RESTRUCTURING AND REFURBISHING EVERYTHING"

A Prophetic Insight For Today's Church

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit 

 

The Lord has shown me that there are a great number of Divine plans being drawn up and a re-designing going on in the lives of those called to move into the roles of Kingdom modeling of the Father's heart, the Savior's desire and the Holy Spirit’s purest functions in the Body.

 

"See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms.

To uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow.

To build and to plant."

- Jeremiah 1:10

  

A PHASE OF "REFURBISHMENT"

The Lord spoke to me in this time about His house of worship. As we put first and out in front of everything else, the “becoming of safe shelters” and hearts of men surrendered to him as yielded vessels, there will be rooms re-designed by the "Master’s craftsmen" that will be filled with strategically planned prayer initiatives, music rooms equipped with "unpolluted spiritual headsets" to hear the songs of the Kingdom and then actually record and share them freely. 

Church sanctuaries will become more like "family rooms" where multi-cultural groups become "one family" as they fix their eyes on upon the "fireplace" of the presence of the Holy Spirit and His Upper Room visitation type of power and might, accompanied by inspired teaching from God’s word.

 

 "I also told them about the gracious hand of my God upon me,

And what the King had said to me.

They replied, "Let us start refurbishment."

So they began this good work.

~ Nehemiah 2:18

  

I AM RESTRUCTURING EVERYTHING

"Yes says the Lord!  I Am restructuring everything in your lives that I have allowed to be taken and shaken from you! How can you be examples of My fresh demonstration in the earth with the worn out living of the past?

Those who continue to cling to the accolades of the past and bygone ministry meetings and services (even if they were recent) will receive a limited amount of new responsibilities until they realize that the past is... PAST!

Each day is a new day and needs a fresh approach to the fresh design template that I AM revealing!"

"The day for building your walls will come, the day for extending your boundaries."

 Micah 7:11

The unseen prophetic and travailing groups of individuals, who are being shaped into the fabric of my own weaving, are currently being made ready for a swift and dynamic change of stride. 

What was once long and hard will become shortened and filled with purpose. Release of My grace and abundant mercy is coming into fulfillment as you end your cycle of instructions for this past season. 

 

"My friends don’t be surprised at the painful things that you are now suffering, 

Which are testing your faith.

Don’t think that something strange is happening to you.

 But you should be happy that you are sharing in Christ’s sufferings.

You will be happy and full of joy when Christ shows his glory."

1 PETER 4:12-13

 

SHOUTS OF JOY

There will be shouts and tears of joy as heaven moves upon the hearts of wise, kingdom-minded saints, who have been given grave responsibility over heavenly blessed currency. My sober, truth-seeking saints, will hear my voice and will not be moved by flashy pleas for glamorous support and promises of free gifts in return!  No! They will be led by the counsel of my Holy Spirit to be vessels that release a steady flow into the hands of those ready to only build with the name "Jesus" on the final product. The financial institutions will be dumbfounded as supernatural windfalls hit many believers, while worldly concepts and scheming only further muddy the waters of universal finance.

 

RE-ESTABLISH A NEW "HABITAT OF WORSHIP"

Allow Me to do this work of re-construction without hindrance or fear!

I will RE-ESTABLISH a new "habitat of worship" within each of My people who allow Me to walk into each room of their hearts, tearing out the embedded dirt, grime and staleness of passive and fearful living.

Accusing and harsh judgments, disrespect for others who have devoted their time in preparation, and -critical attitudes will be purged again and again in the hearts of believers who have yet to see those whom I lovingly call beloved and faithful, even though viewed as awkward or fragile in the eyes of the immature or worldly heart.

"All who belong to the Lord, 
 show how you love him!


The Lord protects the faithful, 
  

But he firmly rebukes
 everyone who is proud."

Psalm 31:23

 

A TIMELESS DESIGN

It is the day for each member of My Body to think of themselves as one Godly unit, ready to honor and edify each unique Master plan of their King. It's the hour where building upon egos and entitlement is over and the conviction of My Spirit goes to work, until the knowledge of humility and eternal reward are viewed as the most perfect and timeless design.

 "Since you are eager to have spiritual gifts,

Try to excel in gifts that build up the church."

~ 1 Corinthians 14:12

 

AN ASSURANCE FOR RELIEF

As the training in humility and gentleness of “heart-expanded compassion” are applied in your lives as friends of Me, your King, your souls will stop from striving and from chasing after lofty goals you set out to accomplish in your own strength.

You will learn to listen to the wisdom and warnings of others in simplicity and in humility. In gentleness you will sincerely approach one another as I the Lord do to you.  Although I am the wisest among you, I put no heavy yokes or shameful methods of performance upon my children. I simply yoke them to Myself in a promised rest when they yield humbly. 

 

"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,

For I am gentle and humble in heart,

And you will find rest for your souls."

Matthew 11:29

 

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 in prayer, Yes - even waiting until I come and refresh, then those ready for training and release who are waiting in the wings will not fully come forward.

Until it is imprinted into your heart that this segment in time is for the saving of the lost, the redeeming of the wasted, and the release of the power of My glory, you will be so very frustrated by the heaviness that continually harasses your soul.

What I authorize, I protect. 

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 others globally who are also still wrestling out of the cocoon in newness and are suffering also. PRAY FOR THEM!

Conflict will be a normal disturbance in the days ahead. Unless you harness the power of consistent prayer and train yourselves in regular gatherings of prayer and worship together, you will shrink back into serious doubt, anxiety and dread when the trauma of warfare attacks!!


GIVE VOICE TO MY SPIRIT!

Awaken your silent tongue and give voice to my name, My power and My Kingdom Solutions! No resistance executed against you will ultimately succeed! My Spirit longs to broadcast 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 seeking for. Quickly! Enter in before you make decisions and exchange ideas with others who might dilute what I am speaking to you!

When I am given My rightful place of honor and reverence…

… Then I will speak and give you clear vision and direction."

 

"In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning

I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. "

Psalm 5:3
