God tells you and I at this time to put HIM
between yourself and the enemies!
 
The_Powerless_agaiinst8zx7s.jpg
 
By Mary Lindow  - Through The Holy Spirit
 

The Father in heaven has an exclusive responsibility towards His people and He cries out to them through the Holy Spirit,  that just as he moved on behalf of Asa and his men when surrounded by a vast army and 300 chariots, so will He move again on behalf of those who are obedient to His voice and commands.

 

He tells you and I at this time

to put HIM between yourself and the enemy.

 

When Asa realized his lack of strength, THEN he saw Jehovah God crush the Cushites.

They were “Crushed before the Lord and their foes.”

-2 Chronicles 14:13

 

Then Asa called to the LORD his God and said,

"LORD, there is no one besides You to help in the battle between the powerful and those who have no strength; so help us, O LORD our God, for we trust in You, and in Your name have come against this multitude.

O LORD, You are our God; let not man prevail against You! "

-2 Chronicles 14:11 

  

THE “BUGLE” TO BE “FRUGAL” 

There will be several “invented” crisis settings in the next months that will cause many to choose to hoard and stockpile for themselves. They will be quickly exposed as moneymaking schemes and a tool to inflate prices.

On the other side of this there will be those who have very little with which to live and eat due to job losses and cutbacks.

Those around them, if not filled with the fruits of Grace and Mercy, will become indifferent to the cry of their needs, for there will be many. 

 

“Share your food with the hungry and give shelter to the homeless.

Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.” -Isaiah 58:7 

 

The Lord would have me share that He is indeed watching to see if the heart of the Apostolic move of God can again be modeled as when the people brought what they had to trusted and integral teams of leaders, (Like In the Book Of Acts, it was Peter) who then distributed with prayer and wisdom to all, and none had any lack.

We are at a time where the Body of Christ must share resources willingly, and fairly and we are not to justify personal restraints that we think should apply to others, but not to ourselves. The hoarding of resources is a clear indicator of greed.

 

HERE IS A SCRIPTURAL MEASURING STICK OR PLUMBLINE

TO USE TO OBSERVE THE TRUE APOSTOLIC HEART AND LEADER. 

 

They share freely and give generously to those in need.

Their good deeds will be remembered forever.

They will have influence and honor. 

Psalm 112:9

 

Before I move into Delivering  the Prophetic Words and Insights that the Lord has impressed me with for the  United Kingdom - Ireland – France Germany and  Canada

I would like to share the brief but potent following thoughts and soul stirring words came from Reverend Linda Brown in Perth, Australia while she was   partaking in a Kingdom Community Zoom Session. They resonate with truth and prophetic depth.

 

“Revelation or Decimation?”

Will we operate from The Spirit of Revelation in the coming days to ensure the Kingdom of God is able to operate fully as God intends in the years that lie ahead?

Or will we see the church grow weaker because of our lack of foresight and action?

This is a challenge for us all as Apostolic/Prophetic people.

 

Meaning of decimation :

 -a drastic reduction in the strength or effectiveness of something."

I honor those insights and believe they are words for the Holy Spirit to leaders at this time.

 

PROPHETIC WORDS FOR

THE UNITED KINGDOM - IRELAND – FRANCE – GERMANY – CANADA

 

“Then I was told, You are to make a fresh prophecy

concerning many peoples and races and nations,

And languages and kings.”

-Revelation 10:11

 

The United Kingdom: 

There will be a ROAR of Prayer heard from desperate hearts in the UK.

Prayer will be a way of life in many small Hamlets and Villages, and many homes will become chapels of healing and miracles. The prostitution red light districts in Central London will have an epic move of God as He sends in intercessors in tandem with relevant and fiery Revivalists who will have such a strong presence of God, with the Power of Holy Spirit bringing conviction, that even the hardest atheist observing it all will be made to run away in terror at the potent power of God falling upon the filth of prostitution.

 

“And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten--the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, my great army, which I sent among you.- Joel 2:25 

 

Houses of hope and care will spring up in smaller surrounding areas, where these whom have once been bound will be cared for and restored. 

 

BRETHREN, IF any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also. - Galatians 6:1

 

 Ireland: 

There are many hidden and faithful leaders who have weathered political and spiritual storms for decades who are now well prepared and ready for the Father’s divine plan for their lives.

Ireland will begin to export teams of Apostolic and Prophetic missionaries into the USA and Europe. These people will have a razor-sharp ability to cast out religious spirits hindering moves of God. They will bring with them the fresh songs of praise and worship now ready for the hungry ears of the true worshiper.

 The “cynical” Irishman will now become the grand believer declaring – “With God all things are possible”! There will be a spotlight on Ireland with new technologies being developed and mined there. With it, doors will open for many to travel to Ireland and find Fathering and Mothering Mentors ready to restore, train, and release. 

 

France and Germany: 

The Father calls France, “A nation now in chaos”. 

But, as an underground stream flows swiftly and quietly, so do those who have determined to pray and intercede with heart wrenching pleas for the Father to move within their land.

A spiritual passivity will begin to be addressed and shaken off of the hearts of fearful and hidden believers in France and Germany.

There will begin to be a few strong and ethical governmental leaders rise up who will begin to risk addressing the rapidly encroaching militant attacks against the people of France and its outlying regions. There will be community of vigils of prayer in local churches and the repenting of passiveness and elitist thinking. 

 

German and French Believers will begin to view one another in a Kingdom perspective and join in prayer and service to one another, creating a groundswell of food pantries with farmers and dairies that will create

CO-OPs. 

 

The key to breaking the spiritual stagnation in France says the Lord, will be the humbling of hearts before the Throne of God and reaching out beyond its own borders. 

 

“For He is [Himself] our peace (our bond of unity and harmony).

He has made us both] one body), and has broken down (destroyed, abolished) the hostile dividing wall between us. - Ephesians 2: 14

 

Germany:

Germany will have a large revolt and uprising from among the youth as the economy continues to stress and bend. Looting and stealing and selling of automobiles will become a raging epidemic. 

For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching [salvation, brought on by Christ and to be had through Him], to save those who believed (who clung to and trusted in and relied on Him). -1 Corinthians 1:21 

Simultaneously, Young street evangelists who have been well trained as well as educated will be commissioned to reach out to those rioting and manifesting.

Government leaders will not know what to do with the uproar, and sanctions against open religious expressions will be put in place.

Nevertheless, young Paul’s and Silas’s will not fear what man can do to them and will continue to flow in the power of Evangelism, seeing the hand of God spare the lives of many. 

 

“Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and preach and cry out to it the preaching that I tell you.” -Jonah 3:2

 

The Lord is going to give Words of Wisdom and Words of Knowledge and messages to the young men and women of God who are going to rise up and speak in Germany!

They will be full of the Power of the Holy Spirit, and they will cause the wave of the move of God to move across many villages and there will be an uprising of broken hearts, crying out for help, and there will be literal street revivals and manifestations of the Holy Spirit. It will NOT be stopped!  

 

CANADA: 

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 the 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?” 

“So brace up your minds; be sober (morally alert), set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (with is the Divine favor) that is coming to you when Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is revealed. -1 Peter 1:13

  

IN CLOSING, I BLESS YOU AS YOU HAVE LISTENED OR HAVE READ THESE PROPHETIC INSIGHTS IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

 

May His word be a lamp to your feet and a light to your path!

 

“Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said,

“No, don’t worship me. I am a servant of God, just like you,

and your brothers and sisters who testify about their faith in Jesus,

 Worship only God." -2 Peter 1:21

 

 “For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus ”

 -Revelation 19:10

 

I want you to know that we are not to be elevating, or exalting men or women of God because of the revelation or the edification that they are giving to the Body of Christ right now.

YES! We do listen to voices that the Lord puts among us, but we do not worship them, nor do we make them our direct contact for hearing things from the Lord on our own.

 

I ENCOURAGE YOU GET INTO A QUIET PLACE, ALONE WITH THE LORD  AND JUST BE STILL!

HE WILL COMMUNICATE DIVINE THINGS TO YOU, THROUGH HIS SPIRIT.

The World is in an absolute Turmoil!! Lives are in shattered grief! 

Sound familiar?Prayer_is_not_a_Collection_b2lgn.jpg

By Mary Lindow

 

MY HUSBAND STEVE AND I HAVE MORE OFTEN AS OF LATE HAD SUCH A STIRRING AND AN ACHING IN OUR HEARTS.

We've had a need, to talk over and deeply ponder many “questions of the heart” and have spent hours in dialog then crying out in messy prayers to the Father, shedding many tears, much of them in unintelligible sobs and choked out words.

The World is in an absolute Turmoil!! Lives are in shattered grief!

Sound familiar?

 

WE’VE WEPT AND PRAYED...

...For those who are forever stirring up and demanding others to “push, to give, sacrifice” —serve "me", do for "ME", give more at the job! And yet, many of these individuals who push others so terribly hard, hide internal rage and insecurities, not heeding the warnings about their own home life and poor social practices, nor dealing with the seething anger and strife boiling within their souls.  And, all too often they project shame onto others, bullying them, then demand respect regardless of what needs to be addressed in their own behaviors.

 

THIS IS WHERE TRAVAILING PRAYER COMES IN.

Where you "gut it out with God", standing before Him in what is called supplication.

Or, in more clear words, it's an appeal, a request for help.

"HELP OH GOD! HELP! Only YOU can address this person, this situation"!

 

OH THE TONGUE! IT IS A FIRE!

The tongue represents the world of wrongdoing among the parts of our bodies.

It pollutes the entire body and sets fire to the course of human existence

-- And it is set on fire by hell.

-James 3:6

 

Steve's and my little piece of trying to warn about and address these things as we minister in various places and gatherings, and also meeting people for ministry advice, comfort in child rearing in a nasty digital age, and in pastoral counseling, well, we are seeing a massive escalation of many families fighting (young and old).

 

A STEADY STREAM OF PEOPLE RESISTING THE TAKING OF “HUMBLE STEPS” towards the change that would spare others deep wounds.

We are also learning to be even more careful about our own words.

 

WE LIVE IN A WORLD THAT IS PASSING AWAY.

Every day this occurs and it edges us closer to the time of choosing whom we serve....

...Not whom we "casually have knowledge of" or a limited commitment to.

 

I’M EVER SO AWARE OF THE NEED TO LIVE, LIMP, TO EXSIST,

EACH MOMENT OF THE DAY IN "THE PRESENCE",

IN FULL EXPOSURE TO THE PROBING EYE AND HEART OF GOD.

 

I WHISPER REPEATEDLY,

“Have your way Father.

Have your freedom to do your work in me.

Have your way.”

 

ARE YOU BEING DRAWN INTO A PLACE OF DESPERATE ABANDON TO SEPARATE YOURSELF AND RE-EXAMINE THE PATH UP AHEAD?

Friend, yield to the tears, the examination and probing of your heart, and speak out to the Father about all of it.

ALL OF IT.

 

THESE ARE THE DAYS WHERE YOU AND I CAN “CHOOSE.”

Chose to grow, move forward, and live simpler and choose to travel along narrower paths.

OR

Draw back and remain dull, returning to the familiar and comfortable settings where WE “choose” to steer the course of our hearts.

There’s no humility there friend.

None.

Just self-protection, empty of any real mature, repentance.

 

WHEN THIS HAPPENS, RELATIONSHIPS DRASTICALLY CHANGE.

People go into hiding, isolation, numb living, compartmentalization, and they “shut out” help.

 

CHOOSE THE WAY WHERE "PEACE LEADS YOU".

Even when torrents of tears and unanswered longings are prevalent.

Keep letting go of “fears within and fears without” until your stride is firm and has consistent sweet conversation with the one called alongside to help.

 

THE VERY HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD IS A WONDERFUL TRAVELING COMPANION!

The heavy judgments of those who rarely risk authenticity and carefully orchestrate their control over what they allow to penetrate past their insecurities and pride, are fully engaged in denial and can absolutely be ruthless and punishing.

Let them be surrendered to God my friends.

 

Hand the entire setting over to Him and then, go about the humble work of digging new wells for those who value the effort that it takes. They will so appreciate the cool cup of water that you serve them in the loving name of our Redeemer Jesus.

 

Samuel Chadwick was a deep man of prayer, and learned how to not only stay "in it", but was know for "sticking to it".

He said:

"There is no way of learning to pray but by praying.

No reasoned philosophy of prayer ever taught a soul to pray.

We know not what we should pray for as we ought ot, and if prayer waits for understanding it will never begin.

We discover by using. We learn by practice.

Though a man should have all knowledge about prayer, and though he should understand all mysteries about prayer, unless he prays he will never learn to pray."

 

JESUS HIMSELF GAVE US A KEY MESSAGE ABOUT THIS!

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to walk alongside with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” - John 14:16-17

 

OH DEAR ACHING HEARTS!

PRAYER! Let's stay at it! Stay in it!

Let's Stay in it until we are saturated in His Peace, His Presence and His Strength to Stand in Courage, and then...

...To Continue!

A TIME LIKE NO OTHER TIME - WALKING ON THE EDGE OF THE PRECIPICE LIVING ON THE EDGE OF ETERNITY - An Urgent Prophetic Exhortation

A_time_like_prophetic9avs0.jpg

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit

 

It seems that with such prolific access to, web blogs and articles, many prophetic voices who are attempting to communicate spiritual metaphors and insights received from the heart of God to be shared and to hopefully  soften the hearts of mankind, have perhaps been reduced to quick sound bites and what I would term "Scripture bites". It’s absolutely essential in these twisted and upside-down days to not look for a quick fix for the turmoil and hard things that we are facing.

 

WHAT DOES THE HOLY SPIRIT WANT TO COMMUNICATE TO US ABOUT “WALKING ON THE EDGE OF THE PRECIPICE”

  AND

“LIVING ON THE EDGE OF ETERNITY”?

As I have searched this out knowing that the Lord was communicating something to me regarding these two statements, clear words of instruction, their potential, and warnings have begun to emerge. I share them from a trembling heart and an alert spirit.

And so first: 

 

WALKING ON THE EDGE OF A PRECIPICE”

Precipice - a noun

“A very steep rock face or Cliff, typically a tall one”

Figurative – “the country is teetering on the precipice of political anarchy”

The origin of the word comes from the late 16th century indicating a headlong fall. In the Latin it means abrupt descent.

This word in a nutshell expresses an anguishing anticipation of what could be a devastating and shocking “out of control” spin into oblivion, tumbling headlong into an unknown space, fully out of control, not knowing when the descent will end, and if anything will remain once it hits the pull of gravity.

“Pride goes before destruction,

A haughty spirit before a fall.”

(Off of a precipice)  - Proverbs 16:18

 

And Secondly:

“LIVING ON THE EDGE OF ETERNITY”

Because we live on the edge of eternity, we must not lose our heads. We must get our heads on straight and think in harmony with divine revelation. We must not be oblivious to the times that we are living in, nor should we be frightened and “act out” in panic. Our clear-headedness makes us able to pray as we should, seeking divine wisdom, guidance and the power to live faithfully in difficult times.

Jesus told His disciples things would go from bad to worse as the end of all things approaches.There will be social and political upheaval and natural disasters. There will be an intensification of opposition toward Christians so that fellow Christians begin to turn on each other and family members betray one another.

 

"Brother will hand over brother to death;  A father will hand over his child.

Children will rebel against their parents and kill them. (Euthanasia?)

 - Mark 13:12-13.

In such times of danger, love will fade, and people will abandon the self-sacrifice of love, for the sake of self-preservation.

 

SHAKEN AND STIRRED

The Holy Spirit impressed me some time back with this statement.

“Shaken AND Stirred”

My mind said, "You mean, shaken - not stirred!"

Again, a little while later, the same statement was impressed into my spirit one more time. “Shaken AND stirred”!

As I thought about this I began to realize that the Holy Spirit wanted to show me a prophetic insight, combined with the word of God regarding what His role in working within the hearts of believers looks like at this juncture in time.

 

WE HAVE HEARD MUCH ABOUT THE SLUMBERING, SLEEPY BRIDE.

A somewhat overgrown, youthful, well-fed bride. Oh! How she LOVES the candlelight, the romantic spirituality that feeds the soul and emotional longings of one yet to experience the commitment to a marriage! Everything has the beauty and sparkle of a fairyland or Disney type of fantasy and fireworks!

Surrounding this young maiden are gifts and beautiful tangible items reminding her of this youthful celebration of a pledge. The pledge to honor the one she loves. The gifts that have been given come from those who know that these will be needed to assist them in their life of growing together towards becoming one heart, one flesh, a single expression of their own family unit.

There are similar parallels to be fearlessly looked at regarding where and how the corporate bride of Christ has behaved on many levels. There has been a new term or word phrase created to address what would often be called a petulant, whiny, overindulged young woman who is in preparation for the big “blowout wedding day event”. The name for this is "Bridezilla”!

The basic picture is until SHE gets what she wants, the way she wants it, WHEN she wants it, anything or anyone in her way gets demolished if it does not satisfy her need to be fully noticed, in control and lavishly celebrated in all of her self-planned and applied concepts as to what a wedding should look like.

The problem is, in real life - the wedding and festivities are only a brief glimpse of what an actual joining of two in marriage looks like for the long haul.

And so when the party is over and the hard work begins, (and yes, it's hard work), the little rifts and storm clouds come to buffet and shape the couple into maturity.

 

BUT! IF THE BRIDE DOES NOT WANT TO MATURE…

…And desires to be treated like a young princess, much like the central character in a children's story, "The princess and the Pea" then no matter how others attempt to sweet-talk or ease her discomfort, eventually she becomes demanding and unsatisfied, regardless of what is offered to her.

And so the current state for many who make up the bride of Christ in its majority is one of a moody, discomforted and unfulfilled mate, waiting for her bridegroom to do FOR her, the things that she would rather not do for herself, and wants the bridegroom to bring her the comforts that she needs without having to labor, herself.

 

THERE ARE THOSE WHO HAVE PAID AN OVERWHELMING

AND COSTLY PRICE TO SHAKE OFF SLUMBER AND SELF INDULGENCE,

AND HAVE STEPPED OUT AS PATHFINDERS.

 

They are boldly declaring a warning about remaining a child and not maturing to the fullness of God's plan. They have warned over and over of the things that we are now seeing happen.

 

SHAKEN!

Imagine the shock, the total disbelief of the five virgins (Matthew 25) who slumbered and gambled with their futures so flippantly when in their drowsy and moody state missed the sound that the bridegroom announced, calling them to come, to travel the road now well lit, to a prepared place.

They were shaken! Shaken to the core and in total disbelief that things had changed and had been shaken in their drowsy existence so quickly! They were warned to be ready but figured just as always that they would somehow be able to manipulate their surroundings and discomforts and find a way to get their way!

And so has it been with the body of Christ the past few years, even though the voice of “The Beloved” has warned and shouted out.

He has sent prophetic voice after prophetic voice, teacher after teacher, evangelist after evangelist with a reoccurring message,

"You prepare the way!

You make the crooked ways straight!

Build up a pathway that you may walk upon to a holy place!

 

And it will be said:

"Build up, build up, and prepare the road!

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

Isaiah 57:14

And yet, the bride in many ways has gone on her merry way expecting to be rescued from her slumber and folly. Walking ON THE EDGE OF THE PRECIPICE and Living On The Edge of Eternity.

 

BECAUSE OF GOD'S MERCY…

…THE BRIDE WILL CONTINUE TO BE SHAKEN

Shaken and shaken again, until she awakens from her slumber and admits to selfish ambition. She will be challenged to become the mature heart who walks with her beloved as her leader and Lord, not just simply as a provider of pleasures, fleshly sustenance, and entertainment.

“See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks.

If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven?

AT THAT TIME HIS VOICE SHOOK THE EARTH,

But now he has promised,

"Once more I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH

BUT ALSO THE HEAVENS.” -Hebrews 12 25-27

The words "once more" indicates THE REMOVING OF WHAT CAN BE SHAKEN, Meaning, created things—SO THAT WHAT CAN’T BE SHAKEN WILL REMAIN.

 

… AND STIRRED

When someone is shaken awake from a deep sleep, the adrenaline begins to pump throughout the body and there is a keen and heightened alertness that begins to stir the senses.

“Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God, which is in you!

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God.” - 2 Timothy 1:6-8

 

“DEEPER AND DEEPER STILL”!  SAYS THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT

It's no secret that the mainstream media has had a heyday with high profile personalities who have made claims to be devout Christians and then find them caught in the acts of extortion, embezzlement, infidelity, tax evasion, plagiarism and justification of personal indulgence at the expense of trusting donors.

Deeper and deeper still will the exposing and dissecting sword of the Word of God separate what is of the flesh claiming to be God, and what is of the Spirit, that is of God.

The folly and arrogance of those who minister with an elitist message will be brought to such public humiliation that even the hardest atheistic hearts will cringe at the ruthless mocking they will face.

As the Lord continues to shake out and stir up the dross in the life of each believer, there will be a corresponding stirring again to deep repentance.

Believers will come out of their groggy existence and begin to allow the deep purging and removal of willful perceptions about whom God has blessed and whom God might use for his glory, and for His purposes.

 

A TIME LIKE NO OTHER TIME

We are in a time like no other before.

There is a setting forth of a new and fresh openness to God's supreme directions.

There is a shaking off of youthful folly and petty “scrapping” over who imparts the greatest message or anointing.

Instead of well planned out speaking rosters for heavily and slickly advertised conference invitations, there will continue to be spontaneous and Divinely orchestrated gatherings throughout all nations.

It has already begun in several unannounced assemblies of like-minded hearts. It is being lit and ignited by the very hand of a Sovereign and brilliantly strategic God.

 

GATHERINGS LARGE AND SMALL, IN HALLS, HOMES, AND BARNS,

HAVE BECOME A FOCUS OF GOD'S HEART.

 

He indeed has an agenda.

It is to call the bride, His beloved, the one He lavishly spent all of his life's blood upon, to rise up from her slumber and be “shaken and stirred” to see that He is beckoning her deeper and yet deeper still to enter into a place of profound grace, mercy, and safety.

As the cry of repentance from dead works, and foolish masterminding of plans and programs (that only led the bride into morbid obesity) is stirred in the hearts of those ailing and sickened by the results of such overindulgence, deeper and deeper still will the Spirit of God draw his people into a communion of body, Spirit, and soul with his plan and purpose.

 

THOSE THAT WILL WAIT IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IN THEIR GATHERINGS…

In their brokenness, in their humility, will begin to experience a hush of holiness falling upon their gatherings. The hovering presence of the pleasure of God will invade and flood the hearts of those who have come simply to fellowship in the power of His word and the Beauty of His Holiness. But! This cannot be a forced agenda or trend! This is not to be confused with what has been termed “The Anointing” or “The Holy Spirit Falling Upon God’s People.” Not a whisper, not a sound, not a song, nor a shout will be needed to attract this majestic treasure.

 

COMING SOON: THE WEIGHT OF HIS GLORY

I have been in meetings where believers who chose to enter into repentance and allowed the “dross work” of God to have full access to every corner of their souls, where, without warning or fanfare, the weight of God’s Glory invaded the room, the conference, and the meeting halls. It was as if a drenching, tangible mass of warmth and comfort wrapped itself around every human being present. It mattered not whether they were youthful or stooped over in the aging of their bodies.

The weight of the very glory and magnificence of the Supreme Being, The Sovereign One, was unmistakable.

Beautiful stillness and sweetness flowed in to and out of every soul present. All who were sitting or standing in this weight of glory did not need anyone to tell them the phenomenon that surpassed any of man's orchestrations was happening.

It didn’t last 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or 15 minutes. It came in waves and beckoned with the fragrance of mercy that only the “Still Small Voice” can infuse a room with.

 

IT SEEMED THAT THE MORE WILLING THE HEARTS OF THOSE IN THESE GATHERINGS WHO WOULD SIMPLY SIT IN THE WEIGHT OF THIS GLORIOUS SILENCE, THE RICHER AND DEEPER THE PEACE BECAME.

And then again, the Sweet song of the Lord would begin to sing out over the people and the people would begin to sing out the sweet song of repentance and devotion back unto the Lord.

IT SURPASSED ETHNIC AND CULTURAL BACKGROUNDS, NATIONAL OR INTERNATIONAL EXPRESSIONS AND HUMAN LANGUAGES.

Deeper and yet deeper still His presence, His glory, His weightiness would hover. In one such meeting, the waiting in His glory, in His presence, waiting upon Him, lasted for 45 minutes. No one wanted to leave, and no one had any agenda.

“Be still!” the Lord said. “Be still and know, that I am God!”

 

 HEART WRENCHING REPENTANCE -- SEASON OF REFRESHING

“Repent, then, and turn to God, So that your sins may be wiped out,

That times of refreshing may come from the Lord." -Acts 3:19

 

There have been voices in the Body of Christ crying out that she must repent for her sluggishness, smugness, and presumption.

These voices will be amplified and multiplied throughout the year.

There will be required by the Lord, a setting apart in the heart of every believer. Deeper and deeper still will the call to shake off slumber, to once and for all lay down the sins and arrogance that easily traps and ensnares the life of the bride.

 

THE GREATER THE SURRENDER

-THE GREATER THE INCREASE OF HIS GLORY

As each member of the body of Christ willingly steps in to the full scan of the Holy Spirit's convicting radiance, a fresh awakening of the empowering courage and strength of Christ as the glorious bridegroom will be brought to the forefront.

He will be the central focus and no longer will the bride lag behind in adolescent drudgery and laziness.

Wave upon wave of adoration will be lifted up as a love sacrifice to the Beloved One. And the weight of His glory will shake and rock religious agendas and nations until they crumble and strip off the need for the noise and glitter that has cluttered and stifled the rightful honor due unto the King of glory.

When with deliberate consideration, the weight of God’s glory is given full access to flow as it begins to invade and permeate, be prepared for unbelievers who may be simply walking by a home gathering, a fellowship service, or a conference, to be drawn into your gatherings as if wooed or summoned by a fragrance or sound that they have had move them to go and seek out where it was coming from.

The Lord shall draw them and show them of His might, His presence, and you shall lead them to Him…

… And they shall find salvation.

 

LAST INSIGHT AND WARNING

Many are indeed "Walking on the edge of the precipice" and are "Living on the edge of eternity, not knowing where to turn or what to do, and will fall headlong into further disaster if they do not awaken from the hardness of heart, distractions and spiritual presumption that have become companions and corrupt habits.

Today you have heard His heart; you have heard His voice,

Harden not your heart, and instead quickly heed His voice.

 

Allow the shaking!

Willingly permit any condescension, elitism, control, manipulation, cowardly blame-shifting, hateful speech, competition, anger, mocking and vengeful and revengeful thoughts, to be once and for all purged out of your soul!

Your very spiritual life depends on what you do when on the edge of a precipice!

You can, “Jump headlong into recklessness”

Or

“Fall into the hands of the living breathing God”.

 

“Take care, brethren,

That there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart

That falls away (headlong off of a precipice) from the living God.”

-Hebrews 3:12

 

THE “END” IS AT HAND FOR EACH AND EVERY GENERATION EVERY SINGLE DAY, and their response to the gospel in this life determines their eternal fate.

 

Each generation is living on the edge of eternity,

and there will always be an urgency to respond to the gospel, for your response to the gospel determines your eternal destiny.

Never_Negotiate_with_distractions86o3j.jpg

 

I’M SHARING TODAY’S PODCAST WITH THE INDICATION FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WHAT I’M SHARING IS A PROPHETIC INSIGHT FOR THOSE LISTENING OR READING REGARDING WORLD HAPPENINGS AND SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

 

A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A CRUCIAL PROJECT,

I found my life barraged and pressured by distractions of all kinds.

Now, this is not an unusual pattern.

 

DISTRACTIONS COME TO STEAL OUR PASSION, OUR PURPOSE,

GOD’S PROMISES, AND HIS PROVISION.

 

I have a scripture and a strategy that I use when distractions come to derail my focus now that really helps to keep me on track and focus on what’s in front of me. This can apply to everything from work, house cleaning, Counseling, writing and ministry, right down to sticking with the list for the grocery store, and not adding extra cheese and crackers and other goodies in the shopping basket!

 

WHEN NEHEMIAH WAS REBUILDING THE WALL,

distractions came in the form of men calling out to him, high up on his ladder, to come down to discuss “their” important matters. These men presented concerns and rumors they feared to be truth, and, they were persistent and insistent that he come down and address the matters with them immediately!

Nehemiah responds plainly,

"I cannot come down, I am doing a great work."

 

THERE ARE MANY DISTRACTIONS BEING HURLED AT THE BODY OF CHRIST CONSTANTLY.

So what do we do?

We look those distractions square in the face and we say,

"We cannot come down. We are doing a great work."

End. Of. Story.

 

WE HAVE NO TIME FOR DISTRACTIONS.

THERE'S TOO MUCH ON THE LINE.

There's restoration to be done, broken down walls and broken down people to be filled back up, truth to be told, healing to be performed, love and justice to manifest and so on.

 

AND WHILE WE ARE DOING THESE ASSIGNED BY THE LORD TASKS,  (because if they’re not assigned by the Lord then we’re basically doing our own thing, not his important work), while we are doing the assigned things from the Lord, we pray. 

And by that I mean, we dialog with God our Father, and praise, and tell Jesus about the gratitude that we have for His life that He poured out for us, and speak back to Him the words He taught us in the 4 New Testament Gospels. And we also allow the Holy Spirit of God to have access to our hearts, bringing a sweet exposure and conviction where we might need to have our hearts cleaned up and "grown up" further in the way God has mapped out for those He loves so very much.

 

When we do these things in reverence and determination as we work,

You will find that we do not have time for distractions.

 

WHEN GOD SPEAKS AND WHEN WE FELLOWSHIP WITH JESUS,

and when the Holy Spirit is busy working in the dry and hard places of our souls, as we do that in our work, every single day, we do not have time for other distractions!  We. Cannot. Come. Down.

 

WE CANNOT TAKE TIME TO BE PULLED INTO CONVERSATIONS THAT ARE WICKED, "weasely", and filled with all kinds of narratives that have nothing to do with what God has and IS doing right now right in front of us in our daily lives.

 

THAT DOES NOT MEAN WE ARE NOT TO BE INFORMED AND...

...that we are not to be advocates for godly truths. That is part of rebuilding walls that have come down in our society. But getting into non-ending dialogs and basically verbal fights with people who just want to prove a point is literally drawing us into distraction and frustration.

 

SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

It’s a Reality and Intense Fight for Good Over Evil!

Listen ever so closely to these mighty battle strategies against distractions!

Now my beloved ones,

I have saved these most important truths for last Instructions.

Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-your union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.

 Put on God’s complete set of armor provided for us, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser!

Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. 

For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage.

Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all glorious and godly things and will rise victorious.

- Ephesians 6: 10-13

 

FRIENDS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST GOOD AND EVIL!

We are doing a great work!

We are obeying God!

And, let’s hope that we aren’t doing it with haughtiness or an attitude of being a little better than everyone else in the way that we serve God! No way!

Someone whom God has called to rebuild or to restore and to do every day jobs, understands that the distractions of ego or the distractions of frustration, often create breaks in relationships, breaks in friendships and it kills the opportunity to have peace with God fully.

 

SO FRIENDS!

REFOCUS.

Do not negotiate with distractions.

Simply move on and put your hands to the great work before you.

Humbly. Purposefully. Without an attitude of needing to prove you’re heroic.

 

WE WORK, WE SERVE, WE LOVE AND WE FIGHT,

with our eyes focused on the One who rides at the forefront of our battles.

He’s there day and night, radiating comfort, wisdom, and grants discernment for every challenging situation that you and I will face.

 

MY FINAL PRAYER FOR YOU AS I CLOSE OUT TODAY’S PODCAST,

is from Hebrews 13:21

“May God Equip You With All You Need For Doing His Will.

May He Produce In You, Through The Power Of Jesus Christ,

Every Good Thing That Is Pleasing To Him.

All Glory To Him Forever And Ever!

Amen.”

 

STAY STEADY ON WARRIORS. 

WE CANNOT COME DOWN TO NEGOTIATE WITH DISTRACTIONS.

WE HAVE GOD’S WORK TO DO.

A_Truthful_timearxic.jpg

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit

 

Truth is slippery.

A lot more slippery than any of us want to admit.

And we do have to, in a sense, choose what to believe.

 

Pontius Pilate seemed quite comfortable with that. Jesus was "talking truth" and Pilate lived in a place of work where “truth” was meaningless. All that his employer cared about was results!

 

The world’s vision of truth is attractive.

It allowed Pilate go back to his home at the end of the day…it allowed the Priests to deal with that "problematic man Jesus" while still being able to eat the Passover. 

It sends the crowds home from the protest hoping that the rebellion will start soon and be successful. (That sure sounds familiar doesn’t it!) 

 

Pilate was dealing with those "pesky" Hebrews.

The poor guy is the governor and he can’t even get the latest group of complainers to come into his house because it’s Passover, that would make them “unclean,” and they wouldn’t be able to eat the sacred meal.

Now Imagine that!! 

Being the governor, and having to go outside to hear the complaints of your subjects? Your subjects whose "truth" meant that your palace was unclean? You can understand why the guy got maybe a bit sour.

 

His employer just wanted the people under Pilate to behave!

That was a pretty tall order among a people as fiercely independent as the Israelites. The Romans didn’t care all that much how order was maintained; they just wanted Pilate to "make it happen"! 

Israel after all, was a center of commerce, and disturbances, and rioting there were inconvenient and they were expensive.

All of this left very little time for Pilate to talk philosophy with this troublesome Jesus fellow. He needed results! 

"Truth" for Pilate meant keeping order, keeping peace, keeping his job. That’s what he chooses to believe in. Even so…he tried to give Jesus a fighting chance.

But the crowds? 

Well, they don’t cry out, "What is truth?"

But, they did CHOOSE what to believe.

 

Jesus has proclaimed a kingdom of truth.

THE truth that God’s will is realized

when we live lives of compassion and healing. 

 

A truth that we are all loved by God and called to live this love out for one another. It’s a truth that has stood the world on end…

...But the crowd decides instead to believe in the old standby.

The sword.

 

Barabbas the thief, who was a violent man, the kind of guy who is useful to a revolution, is the one they cry out for.

They want what they want…

..and so, aren’t really all that different from Rome or Pilate in their way of dealing.

They’ll trade truth for the hope of what they’ll see in terms of "results." 

 

And, we all too often...

…We choose on our own, what to believe as well. 

 

Repentance means "to turn" in the scriptures, to "turn away from.

But it’s not easy! 

And it doesn’t help that the words of our Master—(who stands in passive protest against the established powers of the world as he answers Pilate), has had his words mangled and misinterpreted over and over again by those who frankly, wanted Jesus to sound a little more like "them."

 

The world teaches us its version of truth.

The world teaches us to think: "It’s mine, I earned it."

Jesus says, "It’s a gift, share."

 

We learn to think, 

“They need to follow my rules." 

Jesus says, "The greatest rule is love."

 

We learn to think, "I’ll give when my needs are met." 

Jesus says, “Think that way and you’ll always need more.”

 

We learn to think, "me first."

Jesus says, "be last."

 

The world’s truth keeps you from ending up like Jesus. 

It gets you to resist taking a cross for what IS truth.

 

Believing in something means acting and sacrificing for something, and what Jesus wants from us is not our dying, but rather that we live a life dying to our own selfish ambition which most are VERY proud of. (They will tell you exactly how proud they are of their achievements and skills often, or, live secret lives of self gratification because THEY deserve the rewards!) 

 

The cry of God’s heart is that we would understand that,

the “way of God” is way beyond "our way". 

The way of God IS our call,

and that the way of God is the path to freedom.

 

In the end, we have to choose what to believe in. 

Fortunately for us, faith is also a gift, a gift God gives us.

But that doesn’t mean living it doesn’t take some effort. 

We are called to be light to this world.

We are called to care.

We are called to make the effort! 

 

Let's walk with our Master. 

Let's take the path of sacrifice, and let our lives reveal and radiate the joy of "living out God’s love" for others.

Perhaps then, the world will see that "what is truth"...

...Is truth.

a_malcontenct9zmlc.jpg

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit

For many weeks now, just as I was about to fall into a good deep sleep, I have heard in my spirit the words, “The Winter of our Malcontent”. Trying to reconcile those words in my own thinking, I would then say to myself, “You mean the winter of our discontent don’t you?" (I was thinking about the fact that Shakespeare wrote this and put into print in Richard III,1594.)

Again and again the same event would take place until I was made aware of what the Lord would have me write and share with those - who may have ears to hear. For you see, the subject can be one that many FEAR.

Malcontent; definition

Disappointed, disenchanted, disillusioned, frustrated, unfulfilled; disquieted, disturbed, perturbed, upset; dejected, depressed, despairing, despondent

THE WRINGING OF HANDS AND HEART

For some, it is easier to simply live in a shell of denial or self concocted false spiritual bliss than to look soberly and head on at the turmoil and drama that the world is rapidly spinning and bobbing in.

It will not easily or wishfully go away, and at this time we are and will be, facing severe repercussions for wicked choices made by governments, banking systems and yes religious institutions.

All three can do good things, but many currently have chosen the ways of corruption, selfish ambition, deceptive story telling and above all, the giving away of their heart and minds to the god of this world. A god who traps its victims with promises of greater power, influence, and an adoring mass of lesser gifted humans who are expected to give homage without asking questions.

These pressures and practices can tear at the soul of the discerning hearts who see more than the handwriting on the wall.  They know, regardless of a solid stance of Faith in Gods providence and care - that something is very very wrong and, it is escalating.

THE FEAR AND HOLLOW ACHE WITHIN YOUR HEART 

Many are panicking and poring over every website and news bulletin to see if there are falsities that they can catch and prove in the wrong, or truths that they can exploit. Neither of these will help.

And, the fear mongers believe that we all must be totally obsessed and baptized in fear by pouring it out to their audiences.

They will feed the panic and give power to the spirit of terror that is looming large and with insidious precision.

Where do apparent Bible believers get reliable information to nourish their fears? From you and me. We do it to each other all the time.

Why do we deliver information to our brother or sister that will feed his or her fears?

THE FIRST CAUSE OF FEAR IS THE FEAR OF LOSING PLAYTHINGS AND SAFETY.

We believe that "my God shall supply all your needs," but our old nature cannot believe that, especially when we hear news from worldly sources telling us someone is trying to take our toys and life resources away from us. When we give place to fear, and feast on it, feed it, and pass it on to other people, we are boldly denying that Christ will be our supplier.

If you have a belief concerning death, the end of the world, or the ultimate destiny of humankind that has no hope, no light, and you have the Church headed straight into a train wreck instead of looking at the light at the end of the tunnel, you are WICKED.

If all you do is sit around and talk with wide-eyed terror about the New World Order, the crash of the banks, the collapse of the dollar, and the concentration camps and micro chips getting ready for us you’re not only feeding fear, you also are a promoter and preacher of it.

Harsh words? No.

Honest words intended to get you to shake off morbid living and to decide to truly serve the LIVING GOD or serve - Fear.

 

WHAT FEAR IS

Fear is a harsh and wicked taskmaster.

Fear will not let you sleep well at night.

Fear brings condemnation and shame.

Fear causes hoarding and secret self-protections.

Fear will make you betray others to hide and protect your way of living and your opinions.

Fear will join with accusation and destroy safe relationships, by isolating you.

Fear is a liar and gathers clusters of other tormenting spirits to join with it.

Fear creates excitement for those who use it as a tool to gain attention or - control.

 

JESUS HAS TAKEN CARE OF HIS BRIDE FOR OVER 2000 YEARS

He is still doing so, and will never ever stop!

Know this! The light of Christ that shines in very dark times is the ONLY light that is available. I say this because this light is on "until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts." The light of prophecy is the light at the end of the tunnel of human history, and that light is a person:

“ I Jesus have sent my angel to testify to you, these things in the churches.I AM the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” Revelation 22:16

So, the darker it is, the more blessed that light is.

The stars shine at night, not during the daylight.

Light a candle in a room that has many lamps on, and no one will notice, but strike the smallest match you can find in a totally blacked out room, and EVERY EYE WILL BE ON THAT LIGHT!

 

WHY ARE OUR EYES, AND MOUTH FIXATED WITH HOW EXCEEDINGLY DARK IT IS?

1 Thessalonians 5 says

You are all the children of light, And the children of the day.

We are not of the night, Nor of darkness.”

 

WHAT TO DO NOW

Philippians 4:6-7

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Tell me, what good is it to obsess or prepare to survive the coming crash or doom if you end up living a stressed and tormented life over it?

You’re afraid because you don’t think God can handle your situation.

You’re afraid you are going to die, you are afraid you’re going to get sick, you’re afraid your kids are going to get hurt, you’re afraid the roof is going to fall in, you’re afraid the demons are going to get you!

Whatever it is, it comes from two things.

Number one: 

You have a guilty conscience.

 

Number two: 

You have weak faith in God.

 

You can deal with both of those. 

Have a guilty conscience?  

Confess your sin and get it all cleaned out.

Weak faith? 

Get your Bible open and read what God says about Himself and learn to trust Him.... And pray.

2 Timothy 1:7

For the Spirit, which God has given us, Is not a spirit of cowardice.

But one of power and of love and of sound judgment.

 

FAITH OBEYS GOD IN SPITE OF CIRCUMSTANCES OR CONSEQUENCES

Fear can creep into the hearts of the young and the old, the rich and the poor, the most educated and the least educated, the powerful and the powerless.

What can one do to be freed of fear?

Faith is not afraid of what others may say or do.

An Elijah complex can rob you of power and joy, so beware! Elijah went from victory to defeat because he started walking by sight and not by faith. He believed the wicked queen Jezebel's words but not God’s word, and he forgot how God had cared for him for three and a half years. Fear replaced faith, and he ran for his life. We need to obey the words

 

Do not be afraid; only believe (Mark 5:36).

Faith and fear are opposites, and yet, strange to say, they are often found dwelling within the same person; but where one is forceful the other is undeveloped. The constant attitude of the Christian must and needs to be,

“Behold, God is my salvation, 

I will trust and not be afraid; 

For the LORD GOD is my strength and song, 

And He has become my salvation.

Isaiah 12:2

 

WHAT OUGHT TO BE, AND WHAT ACTUALLY IS

ARE TWO VERY DIFFERENT THINGS.

When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You. 

Psalm 56:3

However, when the grace of faith is in practice, its verbal communication will be:

One thing that must be addressed as well is the situation where there are believers who are currently in trauma, loss, or who are persevering through very difficult and possibly harrowing situations. Very often those who have a shallow development of the fruit of Mercy and attributes of discernment are often found to spout out well rehearsed “shotgun lines” of scripture at those who are in the throws of battle and sorrow.

THIS IS NOT OK! It shows a great lack of genuine Christian Character and even worse, a lack of the nature of Christ. The following verse will clear up any religious sputtering about this, and hopefully bring a nice bit of conviction to the legalistic and hardhearted.

So those of us who have a strong [faith] must be patient with the weaknesses of those whose [faith] is not so strong. We must not think only of ourselves.

Romans 15:1

Jesus Stood up in the Storm and spoke PEACE.

He did not scold and hammer away at the frighten men in the boat with him. He did not shame them with a tone of superiority or condescending blather when he said,  “Why do you struggle with trusting Me (faith) to take care of you?”  He used moments of doubt and fearfulness all throughout the bible as teaching moments, to disciple His beloved children. We too - Can learn from this. It will be much needed in the days ahead.

LET’S PRAY TOGETHER AND BE FREE FROM FEAR

Dear Jesus Christ,

I know that all power and authority on Heaven and Earth belongs to You alone. I come to You today, asking for supernatural divine deliverance from fear.

I am facing numerous issues that are scaring me, sometimes tormenting me! 

I ask you right now Jesus, in faith and with all of my existence, please, please deliver me from all fear. I gave You my soul when I became a Christian.

So right now, I choose to symbolically, hand literally hand you my problems, my fears. 

I pray, Jesus take these fears, and strengthen me against them! Protect me from every lie of the enemy that has come my way trying to deceive me.

You have told me:

"Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." - John 14:27.

Right now, I give it all to You Jesus. Please deal with these fears for me. 

In the name of Jesus Christ the Son of God almighty, I renounce satan and all of his lies that are trying to make me afraid!

I pray that you Lord would bind every enemy and spirit of fear attempting to operate in my life and rebuke it! Protect me from it!

Lord Jesus, please also help me recognize if there is something that I am doing to allow fear to manipulate me. Please let me know if there is something wrong that needs to change. Please let me know if there is something in my environment or home, that is causing my mind to have fearful reactions.

Help us, O Heavenly Father, to dwell not on our fears, but on who you are. We can conqueror our fears only by focusing on you. Then no matter what is the cause of our fears, they will dissipate like the morning fog.

This we ask in the name of Him who overcame all of His fears by fixing his eyes on You and You alone. Amen

Thank You! Amen!

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

By Reverend Mary Lindow

HELLO DEAR CHILD OF GOD,

TONIGHT AFTER SPENDING THE EVENING WITH A VERY DEAR FRIEND IN FELLOWSHIP, COUNSEL, AND A TIME OF HEARTFELT PRAYER, I WAS PROMPTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO WRITE AND ENCOURAGE MYSELF WITH THIS MESSAGE! AS I DID, I WAS ALSO MOVED BY THE LORD TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU AS WELL! 

MAY HE “IMPRINT” UPON OUR HEARTS THE MESSAGE OF HOPE, HELP AND THE CLARITY OF THE MIND OF CHRIST, IN SUCH DIFFICULT TIMES OF TRANSITION AND MATURING IN HIM!

 

SACRIFICIAL THANK OFFERINGS!

He who sacrifices thank-offerings, Honors me, And he prepares the way, 

So that I may show him the salvation of God

Psalm 50:23

The soul part of our human make-up will never really fully understand what the Spirit of God can easily explain to those who know the intimate and true heart of the Father.

When the tiring and crushing difficulties in life occur, people often run to the massage therapist, the chamomile tea and so on, in order to obtain a calmness and sense of “sane rest” to help them unload anxiety, heartache or fear.

But here in the verse above, the Lord so clearly shows us something that actually prepares the way, a pathway for our deliverance from all of the crushing blows life on planet earth can bring! 

He tells us that if we offer up to Him in the times when we are feeling parched, weary, and just plain scared, - “sacrifices of thankfulness,”  - these words choked out through hot tears and anguish, do something to honor God in a way that actually “prepares the way” for the Dear King of Heaven to use as a path or portal to bring us much needed relief, freedom and deliverance!

 

HAVE YOU EVEN BEEN IN PLACE WHERE EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE IMPOSSIBLE?

(Many of you are there now) - and you have cried yourself to sleep begging God for help and mercy. It is then when you will truly understand why it is a sacrificial offering to God to begin to praise Him, thank him, for what is unseen and needed!

The Mercy of God is much deeper and more mature and rich than any mercy man tries to administer.  Sometimes it’s a “mercy” to just not receive it from men! (Joke!)

 

I HEAR THE HOLY SPIRIT BRINGING A CLEAR WORD OF COMFORT AND HELP, to His people who have ears to hear what He is saying to them. Those that are determined to follow the voice of the Good Shepherd and not strange voices.

 

"And a stranger they will not follow, But will flee from him:

For they know not the voice of strangers."  -John 10:5

 

"Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down,

But a good word makes it glad." -Proverbs 12:25

 

SACRIFICIAL THANKS IS AN OFFERING?

Look at what the word Sacrifice means!

Giving up of something valued:

A giving up of something valuable or important for somebody or something else considered to be of more value or importance. Something valuable or important given up as a sacrifice

 

Now let’s look at what Offering means.

: To present something as an act of worship

: Something offered as a sacrifice to a deity

 To declare one's readiness or willingness

 To utter (as a prayer) in devotion

 

THERE IS A POWER THAT WORKS IN THE SUPERNATURAL REALM of a man or woman’s heart and the Heart of God that only the act of worshipping, cried out in agonizing surrender and yielding, that tears away the veil of darkness holding back the Fair Face of Heaven.

JESUS HIMSELF CRIED OUT IN SACRIFICIAL OFFERING.

"Not My Will, but Your will be done," and this opened a pathway for the Salvation of our souls forever!

Oh Dear Pilgrim and anxious child of God! Don’t listen to all of the heavy-handed advice of men when the anguish is so deep and the loneliness tries to consume you with the fear of abandonment! 

THE LORD IS SHOWING US A PATHWAY TO A GREATER STRENGTH AND MIGHT IN HIM. 

 Shouting at God isn’t going to bring a cure or answer to your aching need. He can certainly handle us shouting at Him for He is a Father who understands human frailty! But oh! When we begin to lift up our weary hearts and hands to God and begin to thank Him sacrificially, willingly, telling Him how only He can be the Redeemer of our situations, our hurts, our betrayals, our abandonment…something of a "Dynamic release" beings to occur in the realm of God that man will only fully comprehend when he finally and eternally arrives in the Home of Heaven.

 

NO! IT IS NOT EASY TO DO! 

"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, 

It produces a harvest of righteousness and peace, 

For those who have been trained by it.

Therefore, lift up those arms than are hanging down,  Your feeble arms and weak knees! Make level paths for your feet,  So that the lame may not be disabled,  But rather be healed.”      

 Hebrews 12:11-13 

 

OUR FLESH CANNOT "REASON OUT" HOW THIS WOULD DO ANY GOOD IN OUR PRESENT DISTRESS! 

 We want to do something, go somewhere, help the situation, pace the floor...make a phone call!

 But Heaven is calling. 

Hear what that Divine communication is saying to us!

 

"Sacrifice offerings to God! Fulfill your promise to the Most High!

Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you,

And you will honor Me." -Psalm 50:14-15 

 

WE MUST FULFILL OUR PROMISE TO GOD!

 Did you see that? Our promise to serve Him, to love Him, to think of ourselves as obedient children, who heed his voice quickly and remain honest in a corrupt and frenzied world!

He tells us to call upon Him.  Call Him...in the day of trouble! He says He will deliver us.

 

THAT'S WHERE IT GETS TOUGH!!

We ask in pain, "WHEN? HOW? IT SEEMS SO IMPOSSIBLE!"

Well…it is impossible. We will all too quickly find out that we are not "Superman or Wonder Woman!" 

All of our gifts, talents, wit and braininess can’t deliver us! 

But. Through simple loving, surrendered in sacrificial offerings of thanks to the Master for the joy of being one of His very own, He brings a way of relief and… Release.

 

WHAT TO DO?

Although we are not to be totally ignorant of what is occurring around us and live in hermit mentalities, the Lord does have a greater plan and focus for us during such tough times.

You and I as children of God will never really feel at home here on planet earth.

We have been Divinely implanted with a homing device deep in our spirits that longs for the Home of Heaven. No more tears, no more night, no more longing to fully belong! We have been walking a pathway of preparation, each of us in different stages of our lives, to transition from this decaying world and body into a heavenly place of resurrection and eternal abundant life.

PRESCRIPTION FOR LIBERATION

It will take repeated “doses” of Sacrificial Thank Offerings unto God, 50 times a day if needed, until the rest and mind-clearing presence of God holds you in the Shadow of the Wing of Safety.

You see dear one, It is the total cure for us! His Peace passes all understanding. And can rule and reign in our hearts, even when the storm is chewing the shutters and shingles off of your house! 

WE ARE BEING TRAINED TO TRUST Like never before!

The Father can speak to a boss, a teacher, a doctor, and a tyrant and bring them to a place of peace with you and, a place of favor in the swift blink of a moment in time.

He can move on the hearts of others with such raw compassion that they are compelled by Him to come alongside you and share what they have in prayer, comfort, monetary relief, and counsel, (which by the way…is also often done as a thank offering, offered sacrificially up to the Lord.)

WE MUST START RELINQUISHING OUR JUDGMENTS AND OPINIONS ABOUT THE STRAINS OTHERS ARE UNDER, As well as our presumptions that we “know” what they need or what we project that God wants to do in their lives, and instead, begin to offer up...  sacrificially. 

Offering up unto God in Thanks for their deliverance…where we again… prepare the way for God to manifest something of magnificent proportions in our own place of need!

 

A SAFE HAVEN

"For You have been a safe haven, and a place of safety for me,  A solid tower against the adversary." -Psalm 61:3

The Spirit of the Lord is calling out to His People in this very, very, serious and crucial moment, to allow Him to bring us to a place of learning what kind of sacrifice pleases Him and bring the Anointing grace of deliverance to our lives, cities and nations. 

The Lord is calling out to you and I!

“Come to Me! Run to Me! I know that you are heavily burdened by all of the concentrated pressures mounting around you.

 

A DWELLING PLACE OF DIVINE REST AND PROTECTION.

 It will require you laying down the things that so easily set you off and get you weighed down with concern and anxiety. 

Casting the whole of your cares. All your anxieties. All your worries. All your concerns.

Once and for all on Him. 

For He cares for you affectionately, and cares about you watchfully.  -1 Peter 5:7

 

THE LORD URGES  - "COME INTO A LIFE OF SIMPLICITY."

"Come together into the shadow of My Wings for I AM the Shelter and Refuge for the child that heeds My voice and runs to Me, abandoning self made plans for protection and self-preservation.

I AM your Armor, I AM your Defense.

But you must come with no agenda in your heart or strategy on your lips. You come to the Resting Place of Safety from the Storm to WAIT, Ponder, Rest and rethink your Life call.”

 

THE NEED FOR DIRECTIONAL ADJUSTMENT

We are in much need of a directional adjustment as believers right now as the world turns itself upside down with malice, dictatorships, and political posturing. We need to be certain that nothing of the world and its behaviors are hidden in our own hearts. We must hear that Vigorous pulling voice of the Holy Spirit, and obey it without turning left or right.

"So be careful to do what the LORD your God has commanded you;

Do not turn aside to the right or to the left." -Deuteronomy 5:32

 

FAITHFUL SECURITY. When we walk in the way of surrender and tenderness with our ears attuned to the still small voice of God, we actually walk in the Overshadowing Security of the Presence of God. Training our spiritual ears to hear the voice of the Father is a lifetime guarantee of knowing that when storms or troubles arise, there is a promise for direction to a place of Divine Protection whenever needed.

"Therefore my heart is glad, And my tongue rejoices; My body also will rest secure."

-Psalm 16:9

 

HAVE A REST CHILD OF GOD. It is the hardest thing the mind and body to do! Learning to rest when the world is screaming at a fevered pitch, "WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO NOW”  is a hard learned yet reachable discipline if we will lean into it and ask for God’s help.

Hear the Voice of God calling you to enter into His rest. 

It is a place of pleasant simplicity and uncluttered doctrine. 

His Presence silences all of the noise of the day and noise of the Head.

 

HIS PRESENCE - HIS SHELTER, IS A PLACE OF SAFETY FOR THE WEARY

Dear Child of God! There is no criticism or shame there.

It is a restful place of learning and a place to lift up to him the heavy weight of sorrow and to take up an easy yoke and light cargo.

Let’s Pause. Right now...

...And let's begin to offer a sacrifice of thanks to the Lord together. 

It is just as if the smell of a fresh bouquet of flowers has released it’s perfumed fragrance into the room we are sitting in and floats up to the heart and face of God.

He breathes these offerings of ours into His Great heart and sees the portal being formed by these offerings where in He can reach down to our pain-filled hearts and give us hope, healing and miraculous direction and freedom form all forms of bondage.

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.”

A prophetic Word 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 raising 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." to connect. This is creating great shakings from region to region throughout the 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. And, 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 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.

 

“But they did not listen or pay attention;

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

They went backward and not forward.”  

Jeremiah 7:24

 

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.

 

“But be sure to honor the LORD

and serve him faithfully with all your heart;

considering what great things He has done for you.”

1 Samuel 12:24

 

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.

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

John 4:23 

 

Do not go backwards!

Take off the old garments that would hinder you. My advance is now in the earth, and 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 lands, 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
