“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!

AN IMPORTANT NOTE FROM MARY:

Dear Readers,

Again, I would lovingly encourage you to please choose to listen to this message in the free audio/podcast form since it was taught and shared in a conference where the Holy Spirit enhanced the message, as well as giving a prophetic dream to one of the Pastors the night before this service.

 A supernatural confirmation about what the Lord was about to have me teach was expressed in the dream and the Lord gave the Pastor a song to sing in the dream as well which further confirmed the message!

You will be tremendously blessed when you hear him (risk) and sing this song at the beginning of this conference session.

 

A Prophetic Teaching

“HANGING ON FOR DEAR LIFE”

The Lord Is The Friend Of Those Who Are In Despair


Hangingon.png

 

By Mary Lindow


So, I went with him,

And when we were climbing the rocky steps up the cliffs…

…My beloved shepherd said to me,


"Oh my dove, while you are there

in the seclusion of the clefts in the solid rock,

in the sheltered and secret place of the cliff.

 

Let me see your face. Let me hear your voice.

For your voice is sweet. And your face is lovely.”

 ~Song of Solomon 2: 14

 

I am starting this message with a few references from portions of the book,  

“Free To Be You: Living From Your God-Given Design”

This was written by a precious, humble and brilliant woman by the name of Sylvia Gunther. You can find more reading and devotionals on her website,

The Father’s Business

 

ALL OF US HAVE DREAMS IN OUR HEARTS that seem too wild or unachievable. To pursue them could mean great gain, but it could mean great loss and pain.

So.

Much like a rushing river whose power cannot be fully harnessed, we build walls to contain it, often without even knowing we are building them. We go through life bumping up against things, like the expectations of others, fear, and rejection that lead us to quietly start laying bricks, just a few at time, until one day we wake up and realize we have walled ourselves off from our own heart. We are no longer living out of our true selves.

But like all walls built by man to contain what they cannot control, the levee breaks. The wall crumbles.

 

The Creator, the loving Artist who was so intricately involved in knitting you together in your mother's womb, is longing for you to discover the masterpiece of you.

 

He desires for you to discover the joy of living out of everything he has put in you for life and godliness. This journey requires you to take the time to take an honest look at your story. It will require peeling back some layers to get beyond what you do to why you do what you do.

 

TRUE FREEDOM IS WAITING when you cease striving to fit into everyone else's box or stop trying to make everyone fit into your box for them, and become exactly who God designed you to be — a one-of-a-kind masterpiece of art.

 

THE PEOPLE AROUND US SHAPE US ALL.

How has that affected you? 

How would you be different if you were assured of complete freedom and affirmation to be who you really are?

To answer these questions we have to look at a few levels, such as family, friends, church, and community — levels of expectations, behaviors that we have learned either by force or in order to please others, and what we’ve been taught to value.

Under all these layers of expectation, there lays the true you.

The Master Artist knew the precise colors, tones, and brush strokes he wanted to use when he painted the canvas of you.

Some of us have allowed others to paint over that creation with their own agenda of who they need us to be. Vivid colors have been dampened and hidden.

Here is the glorious news!

The original canvas is still there, and God delights to strip away all that was not in his plan and wants to restore the beauty of you.

 

THE MASTER ARTIST SMILED ON THE DAY YOU WERE CREATED.

He dances and rejoices over you with singing, wooing you to join him on a wild voyage of discovery.

Will you accept his invitation? 

Are you ready to take an honest look at your own life to discover your true heart?


IMAGINE THIS!

There you are, struggling and hanging on for dear life, trying to find a toehold or finger hold to grip and hang onto on a steep climb. The sun is beating down on you and your ropes are fraying.

 

LIFE IS SEEMINGLY GETTING HARDER,

the world around you is swirling and shouting out bad news about terrorist plots and Ebola outbreaks, your job is not producing any sense of delight, there are fights in the family, fights in the church, you are tired, thirsty, beat down and afraid…

… And you don’t dare look down for fear of falling, failing or perhaps giving in to gravitational pull and just letting go.

You are sweaty; you are exhausted, and feel as if you have little to offer.

 

AND THEN THE VOICE OF THE ONE...

...Climbing not too far away from you, dares to say:

“Oh my dear! While you are hanging there in the clefts and toeholds of these rocks, let me give you a bit of shade, a shelter here under a cliff.

Let me see your face! LET ME LOOK AT YOU!

Let me hear your voice, I WANT YOU TO TALK TO ME!  For your voice is sweet to ME and your face is so lovely right now.”

 

As you hang there…

…Stunned at these words coming at you during this desperate attempt to climb to higher ground and to find rest and safety, you are shocked, doubtful and almost angry!

 

“YOU HAVE GOT TO BE JOKING LORD!

NOW? HERE?

“I am a desperate, weary, exhausted mess!”

This is the HONEST cry of a person who is in the midst of adversity that threatens to sweep them away.  

The reasons for broken heartedness are more numerous than I have time or space to address.

My intention is to show you that the Lord is the friend of those in despair.

 

THE LORD IS YOUR REFUGE DURING THIS TIME.

Do not be mislead into believing another human can address the healing needs of your soul, for only THE LORD can see the extent of the damage that has been done to you, and only He can truly heal your broken heart.

Continue to SPEAK OUT-LOUD to this companion on the CLIFF! Bring Him your wailings and suffering. I suggest you do so verbally, in the privacy of your room or a place you go to pray.

Many people are fearful of letting God see all that is going on within them as they wrestle and hurt. They think that God does not want to hear their moaning and that God will not understand their pain. 

They fear that to allow God to see all the emotions churning within them would cause God to be angry with them. They might look UGLY in their current desperate state. THAT THEY ARE WRETCHED UNBELIEVERS!

 

HE SAYS THIS TO YOU AND I TODAY!

“Be not afraid to let me see you.

To let me hear your voice — Your prayers and praises.

Your hopes, your sorrows.

 For sweet is your voice to ME.

You are Perfection in My Eyes.”

 

And then at the hardest place, where you are sweaty, barely able to hold on much longer Jesus relieves us from such discouraging thoughts.

In the holes of craggy and broken rocks, which resemble stairs, He, the one climbing alone with us speaks.

 

LET ME SEE YOU! FACE TO FACE!

Don’t be afraid or ashamed to look at me! Come boldly into my presence, and LET ME KNOW YOU, AND YOU – ME!

Sweet is YOUR voice, and YOUR face is comely; (no – It does not say HOMELY)!  Your face is lovely! YOU as an individual person are accepted by me, and are pleasant in my sight.

I know that we don't see Him as He really is all the time. There are times we’d rather run from Him rather than run “to” Him.

I think there are times I see Him as pointing fingers at me for my sins, rather than standing with open arms in love.

If we saw Jesus as He really is, I think we would be more likely to run to Him.

 

I ALSO WONDER IF WE ARE JUST SOMETIMES AFRAID TO BE DESPERATE FOR JESUS.

To be desperate for Him means that we would have to face our brokenness.

To see and admit our need for healing.

We would have to admit we are in need.

That we got off course.

That we are hanging on a rocky place and we are getting scared and weary of the exhaustion.

And we are all often, these things! We do need Jesus!

Of course we will be reminded, often by others who are masking pain and doubt, that desperation isn't attractive.

 

DESPERATE PEOPLE AREN'T PRETTY.

But this is who Jesus came for. He came for those who could acknowledge that they can't do life well on their own and for those who are empty and want the fullness that Jesus offers.

We must relinquish our unattractiveness and ugliness and be willing to run to Jesus!

It doesn't come easy either! Accepting the fact that we have bought the lies others have spoken over us is not easy!

 

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE WHEN GOD CALLS YOUR NAME? 

Can you hear the tone in which He says your name?

Do you know what it feels like? 

Do you feel the brush of heaven’s breath coming near your very soul? 

Do you feel the warmth of it all?

 

AS HE CALLS EACH OF OUR NAMES, 

HE MAY SAY SOMETHING DIFFERENT. 

Sometimes, many times - as a matter of fact, He reminds me, 

“Let go of the past.  There is nothing there for you.  Go forward.  

Do not pause in the road I’ve laid before you and look back for one

moment!”

 

Close your eyes today and “hear” his voice as He speaks softly.  Listen with your heart.  Close out all the sounds.  The ticking time, the screaming laundry or dishes, the buzz of your phone demanding that you respond. 

Climb up under a shaded spot  - under his shadow, Right at His feet and soak in His presence on purpose.  Not by accident. 

 

LOOK AT HIM FACE TO FACE ON PURPOSE TODAY AND HE WILL MEET YOU THERE.

Listen to what He tells us in His word - at this very moment.

Isaiah 43:1-3 

Read it out loud.   Insert your name


But now,  _____(insert your name)

The LORD who created and formed you says:

“Do not be afraid, for I have rescued you.

I have called you by name; you are mine. 


When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you.

When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown!


When you walk through the fire of oppression, 

you will not be burned up.


The flames will not consume you. 

For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One,

Your Savior.

LOOK AT HIM! 

LET HIM HEAR YOUR VOICE!

HE LOVES TO BE WITH US!

HE LOVES TO SPEND TIME WITH US!

As you do this openly and humbly, 

your own heart and life will be restored. 


But you must listen when He calls your name…

… And ANSWER.
