Prophetic Insights For The Year 2020

THE “REIGN” OF GRACE - AND THE “RAIN” OF GRACE 

MERCY FOR THE MERCIFUL

By The Holy Spirit transcribed through Mary Lindow

 

In 2020 the conviction of God will be strong to cleanse the heart of falsity, 

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.

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.


Mercy.
It 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 2020 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 repairing 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. 

It is His right to define what grace is. It is not man’s right. 

 

Prophetic Exhortation for 2020


“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 spiritual muscles as you dialogue in honesty with me and repent of foolish choices and foolish actions that have caused many to be shattered and shamed because you spoke out of a calling, rather than out of following my voice.

Begin to dig ditches 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 ditches 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 TIME…

…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 ditches, 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. 

Of my fullness you have received grace for Grace. Grace is always available from me without price.

“Keep yourselves 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 to 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 2020 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.”

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?

 

"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."

- A. W. Tozer

 

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."

John: 23-24 (MSG)

 

THE CATALYST OF APOSTOLIC ORIGINS BEGAN WITH A "PLACE" OF SANCTUARY.

Those waiting for the Move of the Spirit of God in an upper room. Hiding from the world and its pressures and threats! Waiting. Worshiping.

Asking the heart questions of,

"Why are we here? What are we waiting for? Who is this all about?"

We are Again...

...In the same place.

 

AND FINALLY - AGAIN,

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.

 

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 versed to instruct in well-oiled speeches implying the way to go.

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.

 

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

"THE GREATEST ENEMY TO SPIRITUAL GROWTH"

DEMEANING ANOTHER GENERATION OF LEADERS

Demeaning_others.jpg


by MaryLindow 

It is highly recommended that you listen to the 

audio version/podcast of this message and join in with 

the prayers lifted up on behalf of the Body of Christ


There is a dangerous trend blooming much like a dandelion in the body of Christ that needs to literally be nipped in the root, and in no way approached with a cowering spirit! Somehow it's now a trending youthful "call from God" to be a cutting edge voice that is sent to “correct” the current Fathers and Mothers in the body of Christ. Hmmmm.....


I DON'T CARE HOW POPULAR OR TRENDY ANY MOVEMENT IS or any individual who is a gifted speaker is. If they have been given the privilege to address the body of Christ on any stage, in any pulpit, in any gathering, they are to be judged and held accountable by those in leadership for their actions and their choices when they speak to others.


I AM ADDRESSING SPECIFIC SITUATIONS where a young-(ish) man or woman is allowed to speak in a meeting and begins to demand that the crowd responds according totheir commands.

There should NEVER be even the hint of demeaning another generation of leaders publicly, or a shaming and finger-pointing message aimed at somehow "breaking the people" and getting them to be stirred up to do something. Whatever that"something" might be, if people are shamed into action, then it is truly not God's will or God's plan.

 

WHO GET’S TO ADDRESS PEOPLE FROM THE PODIUM? There's a lot to be said about not quickly allowing a novice or newcomer to your team to have absolute access to speak into the hearts of those who gather to hear of the specific (and most hopefully) -GOD ORDAINED vision that you, as a leader, have been commissioned and assigned to serve and honor! In 1 Kings 12 - Rehoboam rejected the advice of the "older men" who had stood with Solomon, listening instead to the "young men who grew up with him". It divided the Kingdom. HEAR that.

Pride can cause a novice who is actually termed "a new planting" meaning, “still not having put down roots”, to defend themselves and their more "potent" message. Pride can cause them to look down on others. If you allow it, pride will rob them ofthe most treasured mentoring relationships in their lives.

 

WHEN ANOTHERGENERATION MOCKS THE WORDS OF GOD Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some childish boys came out of the town and jeered at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here you old bald man!” He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled the forty-two the boys.

2 Kings 2:23

 

THE WORD FOR"CHILDREN" IN THIS VERSE IS TRANSLATED AS PERSONS OF THIRTY ORFORTY YEARS OF AGE and, though these are called "little", they were so well grown as to be able to go out of the city by themselves without anyone to guide them, or to take care of them and they were at an age capable not only of taking notice of Elijah's baldness, but knew he was a prophet. They were able to know what good and evil was and, from a malicious spirit inside of them, they mocked at him. Some Jewish writers say they were called "Naarim", which means"children” because they had shaken off the bond that was keeping people close, the commandments, and "little", because they were of little faith:

 

THEY MOCKED HIM, AND SAID TO HIM, “GO UP, YOU BALD HEAD! GO UP, YOU OLD BALDY!”  Meaning, not up the hill to Bethel, where his coming was not really welcomed since most of the people were idol worshippers, and maybe these children were sent out to intimidate him with their jeers to keep him from entering the city! They had heard about Elijah going up to heaven so they jeeringly told him to go up to heaven after him, and then they would have gotten rid of them both! “Who needs that old man telling us what to do?!”  

At the same time that they were mocking him for his baldness, and making a funny story of the wondrous works of God, the taking up into heaven of Elijah, which by behaving so disrespectfully to a “White hairedhead”, a prophet of the Lord, was terribly wicked, and therefore opened thedoor to an external attack from a destructive force. Two full-grown she-bears, who consumed them.

Folks, there are consequences for mockery and deception!

 

BEFORE AMAN OR WOMAN CAN LOOK DOWN ON ANOTHER, they must first assume he or she is better than the person they are speaking against. A proud man or woman is suspicious of everyone else. A humble man or woman is more suspicious of their own heart than anyone else. The proud heart will detect defects in others before him. But a humble soul sees the evil in his/her own heart before they see evil in others.

 

CONCEITAND PRIDE ARE THE GREATEST ENEMIES TO SPIRITUAL GROWTH! Newly acquired knowledge often leads to pride rather than wisdom. This is often true with the novice. There is no surer way to fall into sin than to allow pride to lead us into putting confidence in ourselves rather than God. This type of pride always leads to destruction, because it robs us of God’s power to stand against temptation.

 

WHAT WEACCOMPLISH AS MEMBERS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS DONE BY THE POWER OF GOD. The novice begins thinking that what he/she accomplishes is his/her own doing. The people in Corinth had been developed in every way as well, with the knowledge of God, but pride in what they knew was about to lead to their destruction!

 

KNOWLEDGECAN BE MISTAKEN FOR MATURITY, but true knowledge is designed to bring us TO maturity. When we parade our freedom before others in an effort to reveal how much we know, we reveal our immaturity and are treading on dangerous ground! Knowledge put on PUBLIC display leads to revelry and scattering.

 

TRUE KNOWLEDGE BRINGS THE RESTFUL DISCIPLINE OF SELF-CONTROL.  Paul’s knowledge ofGod led him to lead a disciplined life for the benefit of himself and others. HUMBLING OURSELVES IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE ROOF OFF TOWARD GOD, AND THE WALLS DOWN TOWARD OUR FELLOW MAN

Once offences have been committed, whether intentional or unintentional, they must be dealt with! “I was wrong. I am sorry. Will you forgive me?” are healing words that only a humble soul would use. Whenever you find a man or woman willing to humble themselves before God and man, you have found a person who will be exalted, because “humility comes before honor.”

 

REMEMBER THAT SOME MEN’S SINS ARE OBVIOUS, AND ARE EQUALLY OBVIOUSLY BRINGING THEM TO SERIOUS JUDGMENT. 

"The sins of other men might not be apparent, but are dogging them, nevertheless, under the surface. Similarly some virtues are plain to see,while others, though not at all conspicuous, will eventually make themselves felt."

1Timothy 5:24-25


 "Don’t reprimand or publicly talk downto a senior leader in your church, honoring him as a father by first showing respect and humility. Treat the young men kindly as brothers, and the olderwomen as nurturing mothers. Treat the younger women as sisters, and nothingmore."

1 Timothy 5:1-2

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

PLEASE USE THE MEDIA PLAYER BELOW 

TO LISTEN TO THIS AS A FREE AUDIO PODCAST

By Mary Lindow

What I will be sharing with you in the next few paragraphs is something I am being heavily moved upon by the Father to pour out to you and to in a sense, "impart to you" from His Spirit.

SOME OF IT YOU WILL LIKE, 

some will strongly challenge you and maybe even prick your soul a bit. But, all for the Good of the purposes God has for you. I love you all enough in Christ to not fear your potential upset with my loving insights.

STRETCH THE TENT PEGS OVER THE GLOBE
The following thoughts and spiritual insights are shared with the intention of helping you see a broader picture, a richer dimension “Kingdom-Globally” and, to challenge you to stretch the tent pegs over the Globe, not just in your local region or country. 

So often we want to “export” our spiritual experiences or current expressions of the Holy Spirit to other places and think our way of serving God in our locality is the most powerful and effective pathway to Promised Revival and times of Refreshing.

Many of these same Spiritual moves of the Hand of God are also occurring in Europe, S. Africa, the USA and other places globally. Remember, we are of the Heavenly Kingdom, on assignment to the Globe and have been strategically placed to serve the King of Glory.


SO! HERE WE GO!
Get a cup of tea or coffee and enter the Classroom of the Holy Spirit!

I do agree, that much of what the Lord desires to be done in our native nations needs to come from among the "tribe" there, but we need to be ever so careful to see that the Lord sends in and sends out from among our own and others, specific messengers, people, and giftings in order to train, edify, breakdown earthly cultural divisions and...Refresh.

NO MOVEMENT OR REGION IS EXCLUSIVE ON THE EARTH…
…when the Kingdom is being freely expressed. Everywhere on the Globe, God is doing similar things. I have watched it occur in the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Africa, and Australia over and over again. The weeping, worshiping, repenting type of movement was rich, humbling, and overflowing.

AS YOU GO TO THE LOCATIONS THE LORD MIGHT SEND YOU, 
see yourself carrying a small jar of oil as the widow of the prophet had in the book of Kings. 
(2 Kings ch. 4 vs. 1-7)
What if she had never obeyed and had not collected the empty “foreign pots of her neighbors”, as many as she could? And she did it in front of her children!

AS she shut herself up with the jars, (empty vessels) and her children, she still had to empty the little precious oil she had in the possession of her small self or - hence, the little pot of oil.

DEAR CHILD OF GOD. YOU ARE ONLY GIVEN ENOUGH FOR EACH EVENT, 
EACH MOMENT TO POUR OUT.
BUT. Once you do freely pour into any nation or individual, meaning-any vessel that is empty and put aside, more will then flow, until, all their jars (people) have been filled. Then, you go home, and rest in His presence and prepare again.

THE JOY AND YET SOBER WARNING

that comes from the Lord to those sent to nations is that we must never exclude others from other nations or foreign lands, whether we are at home or in another nation. All that we are, and have been set apart for must be freely shared, freely given, and…
… Freely let go of.

LOCATION IS ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO HUMANS.

It gives us a sense of belonging, purpose, and identity.
However, we cannot lay stake to where and how God will move or honor our efforts. His heart is set upon the whole location of earth to bring it into a Heavenly kingdom fit for Him to rule and reign. He brings heaven down to us, wherever we are, regardless of our location.

The Lord sees our zeal and thrills over the gatherings we have all been a part of. Large or small.
And He celebrates with us!

BUT I AM STIRRED WITH A PROPHETIC WORD OF WARNING…
… And also a spiritual insight. 

Once you have stepped into ministering on a national and perhaps international level and move into another place of God’s design for your life, the first thing the Enemy likes to do is imply that we have become more unique or special in our place of calling, location, or expressions.

Actually. You have been called to die further. 

To ambition, to personal vision and importance. 

Teach this to the young ones.


WE MUST LEARN THAT IT IS NOT LOCATION OR HARD WORK THAT GOD IS BLESSING!


He blesses lives Hidden WITH God in Christ.

Those who will start fires wherever they are sent and then, carry the embers of that flame with them, releasing others to fan the flames.

"He makes winds his messengers,
Flames of fire his servants." 
Psalm 104:4


“I will say to the north, 'Give them up!' and to the south, 
'Do not hold them back.' 
Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth!” 
Isaiah 43:6


WHAT ARE THE BATTLES OF ENTERING INTO "THE CALLING?"

The Big ones? 

Personal obscurity and self-denial.
Letting go of the torch of personal vision so that others may flourish. 
Laying down our exclusiveness and letting others in on God's inclusiveness… globally.

"Therefore, my brothers, 
Be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure.
For if you do these things, you will never fail." 
2 Peter 1:10


THESE WORDS MAY SEEM INTENSE…

...And sobering dear friends.
But you have stepped into it now and I would not be a true friend to you if I didn't lovingly share with you that, since you have received a commissioning, you must also prepare to release that and, commission others until you yourself have multiplied the fire by allowing others everywhere to be able to have some of it, to fan it, to flame it...to make it their own, only to then repeat the process.


SIMULTANEOUSLY, OTHER GATHERINGS AND MEETINGS ARE OCCURRING GLOBALLY, UNANNOUNCED TO ALL OF US FOCUSING ON OUR OWN REGIONS OR AREAS.


THE LORD IS "TABERNACLE-ING WITH HIS PEOPLE" ...

,,,Everywhere that there is humility, hunger, and holiness.
Eventually, all of this kind of "tent meeting" will produce a move of Global intensity and will have a Glorious Collision among tribes, nations and peoples. We will all know one another in Christ and identify ourselves only as those from another Heavenly Kingdom. Even if we do have different accents and languages to struggle with!

"With this in mind, we pray for you, 
that our God may count you worthy of his calling, 
and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours 
and every act prompted by your faith." 
2 Thessalonians 1:11



AS YOU GO TO THE NATION OR CITIES OR PEOPLE THE LORD SENDS YOU TO…

...You go as a black man or woman, 
a yellow man or woman, 
a white man or woman, 
a brown man or woman 
and a red man or woman.

YOU GO GLOBALLY, CULTURALLY, AND KINGDOM-LIKE.

YOU ARE one of THEM.

YOU become that part of the Kingdom when you are there, and you fan the flame God has placed in their location, leaving another aspect of the Kingdom with them, to also carry… Globally.

When we implement this, we mature in Christ and step into a new dimension and a new "Good Time to die a little more," and in doing this we produce and dispense the fresh perfume of a surrendered life.

"But thank God! 
He has made us his captives,
 and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. 
Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere,
like a sweet perfume."
2 Corinthians 2:14

THE STRATEGIC DRAWING BOARD

There are a great number of Divine and strategic drawing boards 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 passion 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

OLD WALLS vs. NEW WALLS

Old walls first come down before new ones can be put up!

Old walls of keeping people out of "your space"  -  "your ministry" - “your home”. The true boundaries of the Kingdom have room for everyone to freely express, (with respect for others), the passion they have for the "design" the Lord has given to them, for building up the King's domain!

The "kingdom" of God has grace as its boundary setting and humility as its foundation.

And it will be said:

"Build up, build up, prepare the road!

Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people."

~ Isaiah 57:14

"THE ERA OF REBUILDING"

The Lord is speaking to us in this era of "rebuilding" His house of worship – that as we put first becoming those temples and hearts of men surrendered to him as yielded vessels, there will be rooms re-designed by the "Master’s craftsman" that will be filled with strategically planned prayer initiatives, music rooms equipped with "clear spiritual headsets" to hear the songs of the kingdom and actually record and share them freely, and a series of “family rooms” where all ethnic groups become "one family" as they fix their eyes on upon the "fireplace" of the presence of the Holy Spirit and His Pentecost type of power and might!

"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 rebuilding."

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 My fresh expression in the earth with the old worn out living quarters of the past?

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

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

“The day for building your walls will come,

The day for extending your boundaries.”

Micah 7:11

A CHANGE OF PACE – A STRENGTHENED GRACE

The unseen prophetic and travailing groups of individuals who are being shaped

into the fabric of God's own weaving, are currently being made ready for a swift and dynamic change of pace.

What was once long and hard will become shortened and filled with rest.

Release of God's grace and abundant mercy is coming into fulfillment as you end your course of instructions for this 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

“BIGHEARTEDNESS"

Bigheartedness will be a part of the evidence of a fresh wave of Kingdom glory in the earth. Missionaries or “sent ones” will not grieve over broken promises made to them for aid to go! No! Those now surfacing in the earth as the fresh wave of pure and “Joseph-type” of compassionate-hearted, nurturing investors (KEY WORD: Nurturing), will be suddenly established… as well as the faithful and obedient souls who have never merchandised the anointing or promoted their gifting nor have shamed others while they too were flowing in obedience themselves.

“I pray also 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 the saints.”

Ephesians 1:18

“THE SERVANTS OF BLESSING”

The financial institutions will be dumbfounded as supernatural windfalls hit the Body of Christ while worldly concepts and scheming only further muddy the waters of global finance.

Joseph gifts in the body, men and women, who are beginning to see with eyes now stripped of the fear of be taken advantage of, will be visited with great joy and supernatural revelation as they see that they are called by Heaven as “The Servants of Blessing.” They will operate in a restored life of purity in motive, in worship, and in honoring one another in Christ. Simply honoring each other without keeping lists of how much has been given or shared!

“All the believers were one in heart and mind.

No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,

But they shared everything they had.”

Act 4:32

THERE WILL BE SHOUTS AND TEARS 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. These sober truth-seeking saints, will hear the voice of the Lord 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 the 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.

“Joseph TROUPES”

I am impressed by the Lord as I write that there are even those who have a “Joseph Troupe” type of calling that will actually store up investments and actually be teamed up by the Lord with missionaries, food banks, and other sent ones. The Joseph gifting will bless the harvest call on many seasoned and faithful servants of God who have been in places of preparation for further ministry to the Body of Christ globally.

HAND PICKED "PEOPLE APPOINTMENTS"

There will be specific "people appointments" from the Father in heaven and through His Holy Spirit, He will bear witness in the hearts of those called like Joseph, to assist their Godly assigned brothers or sisters in Christ in the touching and training of believers in many nations. Discipleship will once again become a key component with those who have the apostolic heart to mentor and direct others into the field of harvest.

HEARTS OF KINDNESS  - COMPASSIONATE ADVISORS

These wise ones have known the false and greedy appeals for more coffers of religion to be filled and are no longer swayed nor fleeced by them. They will become hands of blessing, hearts of kindness, and I am again impressed by the Spirit of God, that they will also be compassionate advisors to those who have poured out all they have upon the spiritually hungry without taking much for their own care and rest. They will also be given great discernment regarding whom they are not to pour into in the next season of Kingdom work.

A PLACE FOR “JOSEPH GRACE”

A Godly voice of wisdom will be heard from the Joseph-hearted saints and they will prepare fiscally, medically, and recreationally well-designed plans for those needing such tender care.  It will be as if the Father himself brought heaven to earth in the form of a heavenly Joseph appointed employer, providing a salary for the employee as God establishes a different way of sending laborers into the harvest fields of service and places He commissions them to go. They will go with a foundation of “Joseph grace” undergirding them financially, relationally, and more importantly, in humble fervent prayer as co-workers together.

“Joseph, called by the apostles "Barnabas"

(Which means "Son of Comfort"), a Levite born in Cyprus,

Sold a field that he owned, brought the money,

And made an offering of it to the apostles.”

Acts 4:36-37

REBUILD A NEW "HOUSE OF WORSHIP"

Allow the Father to do his work of re-construction without hindrance or fear! He will rebuild a new "house of worship" within each of His people who allow Him to walk into each room of their hearts and tear out the old and embedded dirt, grime, and of staleness of passive and fearful living. Accusing and harsh judgments, disrespect for others devoted time and critical attitudes will be purged again and again in the hearts of believers who have yet to see through the eyes of Christ those whom He lovingly calls beloved and faithful, even though viewed as awkward or fragile in the eyes of the immature or worldly heart.

Psalm 31:23

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

The Lord protects the faithful,

But he firmly rebukes
 everyone who is proud.”

THE MOST EXCELLENT ETERNAL BLUEPRINT

It is the day for each member of the Body of Christ to think of itself as one Godly unit, ready to honor and edify each unique Master plan of the King. It's the hour where building upon egos, smug thinking, and entitlement only invites the demolition of the Spirit to go to work until the knowledge of humility and eternal reward are viewed as the most excellent eternal blueprint!

"Since you are eager to have spiritual gifts,

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

~ 1 Corinthians 14:12

A PROMISE FOR REST

Rest will be essential for the retention of peace and clarity in this next year.

As the training in humility and “gentleness of heart-expanded compassion” are applied in our lives as friends of the King, our souls will cease their strivings from the driven goals we set out to accomplish.

We will learn to listen to the wisdom and warnings of others in simplicity and humility. And, in gentleness we will sincerely approach one another as dear Jesus does. Although He is the wisest among us, He puts no heavy yokes or shameful modes of performance upon His children. He simply yokes them to Himself 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

AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.

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 .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!

Philippians 2: 1-3 1 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,

2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.

3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.

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
