Spiritual warfare

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

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

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

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

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

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
 
Jeremiah was known as the 'weeping prophet’. 
Some say he was called at the age of 17. 
 
He was called to reprove a crumbling nation. The Israelite nation. 
Unfortunately for them they didn’t  listen to him. But during his day, people were so hardened by sin that they neither believed God nor feared him. They seem to find Jeremiah's constant warning of judgment overbearing and frankly, annoying.
 
It's the same with us now. 
Those that hear our warning find us obnoxious! 
But as believers we are supposed to follow God's instructions to warn a lost and dying world of upcoming judgment. Even though most are not listening, we still have to persevere in courageously speaking truth in order to rescue some from the terrible judgment that will inevitably come. If we are so easily discouraged at fighting the rude behavior of our peers what are we going to do, when we are confronted by demons? 
 
The LORD rebukes Jeremiah for his impatience, in Jeremiah 12:5 saying, 
“If you have raced with men on foot and they have tired you out, Then how can you compete with horses? If you fall down in a land of peace [where you feel secure], Then how will you do among the lions in the flooded jungle thicket beside the Jordan?”
 
If we are distraught when we can't make a car payment, what will we do when we lose our job?
If the footmen weary you what will the horses do?
 
If we are distressed at the terrorism going on overseas, what will we do when it’s in our own neighborhoods? Because it already is!
If the footmen weary you what will the horses do?
 
If we are overwhelmed with the work we have now, what will we do when a double or triple portion is required of us? 
If the footmen weary you what will the horses do?
 
God is reminding Jeremiah (and us) that there is much more to be concerned about than what we’re complaining about . 
There is something ahead of us in this season my friends that is of more concern than petty grievances against those who seem to be better off or live easier than we do. 
God is telling Jeremiah “ If you are not able to encounter lesser dangers, how will you be able to overcome greater ones?” 
Jesus said to us in John 16: 33 “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! Take Courage! I have overcome the world.”
 
It’s natural that our hardest days and most difficult trials are ahead of us, not behind us. If you are worried and in great upset about these things, what are you going to do when you are forced to face extremely difficult trials and troubles that are most certainly just around the bend?
 
Matthew Henry said, “The faith even of strong believers may sometimes be sorely shaken and ready to fail them. There will be storms that will try the firmest anchors.”
Now, Isn’t that the truth? 
Jeremiah was consumed with grief about the prosperity of the wicked in Anathoth when just in a short time He would be beaten in Jerusalem by order of the priest Pashhur (instead of worrying about the prosperity of heathens in Anathoth, he was about to be severely punished by a priest in Jerusalem). 
 
Let's take a sneak peek of what is in store for Jeremiah:
“He had Jeremiah the prophet beaten and put in the stocks at the Upper gate of Benjamin at the LORD's temple.” Jer. 20:2
 
God saw this coming when Jeremiah was crying about the prosperity of the wicked!
If Jeremiah had known what was going to happen ahead of him, He wouldn't have wasted time complaining about the men of Anathoth. Jeremiah was concerned about something insignificant when something greater needed his attention. 
And, His own family was secretly conspiring against him — they spoke well of him to his face but were trying to incite a mob against him behind his back. They seemed to be friendly but they were really his enemies.
 
God's faithful servants shouldn't think it's strange that their enemies are in their own family, some living under their own roof.
 
Jesus told us in Matthew 10:34-35 
“For I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. A man's enemies will be the members of his own household.”
 
So friends, If the footmen weary you what will the horses do? 
I know I keep repeating the statement because it’s what the Holy Spirit would have me consistently say so that you hear the challenge and that you are strengthened to stand up and be courageous, now!
 
God's answer to Jeremiah was to be absolutely determined to stay solid and immovable in his walk with God, because there were bigger trials ahead of him that needed his attention. But God does let him know what will happen to Israel and her enemies. Although God punishes Israel by allowing her enemies to overtake the land, God would not let her enemies sacrilegiously use that land which belongs to Israel. Even their land is blessed!
“But after I uproot them, I WILL AGAIN HAVE COMPASSION and will bring each of them back to his own inheritance and his own country.” (Jeremiah 12:15)
God will again deliver his people from their enemies by uprooting them just as he did when they were suffering in Egypt. 
 
God shows that even his enemies may receive compassion and grace.
“And if they learn well the ways of my people and swear by my name, saying, 'As surely as the LORD lives' even as they once taught my people to swear by Baal – then they will be established among my people.” (v.16)
 
God's Expectation Is Plain. 
If Israel's enemies would pay homage to God the way they did for Baal, (a dead and dumb idol) if they could humble themselves to follow the God of Israel instead of teaching Israel to follow idols they would be rewarded, but if not...
“'But if any nation does not listen, I will completely uproot and destroy it,' declares the LORD” (v. 17)
 
God's call and Plan and Instructions for us can be summed up in 
I Corinthians 16:13 “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” 
 
Our greatest difficulties are ahead of us, not behind us.
(If our troubles were always behind us, we would never grow as a Christian.) 
We mustn’t waste time complaining about petty things. 
Quickly put on your helmet, take up your sword and shield, tighten your armor and get ready! Get ready to run with the horses!
 
God offers Jeremiah a beautifully wise word picture for him to consider. 
He essentially asks Jeremiah, “If footmen weary you, what will the horses do?” 
 
Paul referred to life as a race. 
Makes sense, after all, it has a beginning, a middle, and a strong determination to finish strong. It requires endurance, patience, devotion and a resolution to finish strong. At the end of his life Paul said, “I have finished the race.” And referring to Jeremiah's race God is saying: If running with others on foot, when everything is equal, what are you going to do when they are given horses?
 
In this verse the prophet Jeremiah has been complaining about his persecutors. God Divinely answers, and warns Jeremiah about his impatience, and then tells him that harder trials are in store for him. 
What? More distressing times? 
 
We all have had the experience of how in our lives, there are long stretches of uneventful days, and then, generally without warning, some crisis is sprung on us, which demands quite a different set of gifts to cope with it. Our monsoons in Colorado, generally come without any warning from a falling barometer.
 
We can at any moment be confronted with some hard duty which will exhaust our energy. We may at any moment be plunged in some huge calamity and the quiet course of our lives for years suddenly is interrupted with fierce storms and devastating fallout. 
 
We won’t always have the easy foot race with footmen; there will some times come a call to strain our muscles to keep up with the gallop of the cavalry. We will have to struggle to keep our feet in the rising waters of difficultly, and must not expect to have a continual leisurely life in ‘a land of peace.’
 
With the power of Jesus in our spirits we shall never have to attempt
a duty that we are not first strengthened by Him to take on. 
And we never have to face a danger in which He won’t defend us. 
 
With His life in us we will be ready for the long hours of uneventful, unexciting duties, and for the short spurts that make precise calls on each of us to respond to. We ‘WILL run and not be weary; we will walk and not faint.’ 
 
As I finish this podcast I’d like to share what Oswald Chambers said about patience during the time of great difficulty and when the world is filled with uprising.  It is so powerful and quite comforting.
 
The Duty of Patience
"Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth" (Rev. 3:10).
Jesus says we are to keep the word of His patience. There are so many things in this life that it seems much better to be impatient about. 
The best picture to explain this is that of an archer: 
He pulls the bow string further and further away from his bow with the arrow solidly fixed in its slot, then, when it is adjusted, with his eye on the target he lets it fly. 
The Christian's life is like that. God is the archer. 
He takes the saint like a bow which He stretches, and we get to a certain point and say,"I can't stand any more, I can't stand this test of patience any longer," but God goes on stretching. 
He is not aiming at OUR TARGET mark, but at His own, and the patience of the saints is that we hold on until He lets the arrow fly straight to His goal.
 
Are you ready for a time of strengthening to come into your life? 
The Lord promises that a dramatic transformation will take place in us when we abandon our agenda and open ourselves to His plan for us. 
 
We can see this so clearly in the life of Saul before he had become the Apostle Paul. Saul had been intent upon his own evil strategy to persecute Christians. Then came his life-changing encounter with Jesus, when he asked the most important question of all in Acts 9:6: 
“Lord, what do YOU want me to do?”
 
Are you ready to ask the Lord that same question? 
Are you ready to give up your own fruitless designs in return for God’s better plan?
Let’s pray that together now.
Lord Jesus, I have been moving forward persistently with my own thoughts and plans. I have been intent upon seeing those accomplished. Now I see that despite my good intentions, my plans may not be in line with Yours.
Right now, I humble myself before You. 
I take this moment to ask, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” 
In Your presence, I place my agenda on the shelf, and I open my heart and my hands to Your plans and purposes.
I belong to You, Lord. Please forgive me for any stubbornness that may have captivated me. 
I pull down that stronghold right now—any thought that needs to be taken captive to the obedience of Christ. 
I place my future in Your hands, Lord Jesus. 
Have Your way—and only Your way—in my life. Amen.

RED ALERT: A VISION OF THE COMING STORM
“THE FORCE OF GOD’S POWER OVER THE EARTH”
By Mary Lindow – through the Holy Spirit
 
BEFORE WE BEGIN:
I’m going to kindly ask you to please be patient and take the time to listen to this as a crucial podcast, due to the important timing. I have recorded the entire vision as well as what the Lord has shown me as to what it all means in the audio form, but I will only be able to share with you in the text form here when I explained a little bit about what happened in this tremendous vision. It takes so much bandwidth to put the entire message into the text and it really is a very tedious and difficult process.
Please listen! The vision alone is in the notes below.
 
I am returning now with a podcast that I had promised to have follow the previous podcast where I talked about “A time of review, before the new”. This podcast is one that I have sat on for about a year, due to the fact of it being pretty intense for me receiving this from the Lord.
Trying to figure out how to put into words what you see in the spirit in a vision from the Lord, and understanding it and then, scripturally applying what you have seen and learned is daunting. For me it’s a very serious and holy thing, and I wanted to make sure that I really presented it at the time and in the way that the Lord would want me to.
We’re going to get started with that but before I do I want you to know that at the end of my podcast I will be sharing about two different conferences that the Lord has opened the door for me to go and minister at, so those of you who often if ask if I’m going to be in your area, those doors and opening up again since the WuhanCovid19 bio weapon attack on our world, so you can look that up at the end and also my website has all the information you would need about those conferences.
 
THIS VISION HAS A LITTLE BIT OF GROUNDWORK IN IT.
In my last podcast I shared about a vision or a word from the Lord that I had in 2016 called, “The Great Coming Whirlwind” and I also shared about what the Lord was wanting us to see and was adjusting what we needed to look at in our hearts, regarding where we are at right now in this time on the earth.
 
I BELIEVE THAT THIS VISION THAT I HAD FROM THE LORD IS SO “RIGHT NOW” IN THE TIMING, THE PRECISION TIMING OF THE LORD TO SHARE. I am almost shaking a little bit as I share it and I feel a little bit of trembling sharing it, because I know we are coming up to a climax of something in the earth, and God is not mocked, and he is not a fool, and God is not afraid, nor is he worried.
 
HE WILL NOT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM, ALLOW WICKEDNESS TO RULE AND REIGN.
But in that process, God does a deep work within his own people, because if there’s wickedness in his own he must Judge fairly and rightly, and he’s so good to give us time to get repentance going, to be accountable, to get the help we need. When we don’t, he has to bring his pure and righteous hand of judgment, and he has to do “cleaning house” because, God does not tolerate darkness in his light.
 
I’M GOING TO BEGIN TO SHARE THE VISION WITH THE SCRIPTURE VERSE THAT STARTED WITH THIS VISION.
It’s the picture that you will see on the podcast graphic itself.
I’d like you to take a look at it and please, have mercy and grace over me, because trying to put a graphic together and combine it all with what I saw, and how I saw it, was a challenge. The scripture verse that started this vision was very intense and of course, when we don’t understand what the word is always saying sometimes we’re a little not sure what we do with this, so I did a lot of studying and praying and referencing, before I chose to really open myself up to recording this.
 
THAT SCRIPTURE VERSE IS NAHUM 1:3-4 
‘The Lord is slow to anger but great in power, the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebukes the sea and dries it up, and he makes all the rivers run dry.”
 
I WAS IN OUR LOWER LEVEL IN OUR BASEMENT AND I HAD BEEN WORSHIPING, JUST TALKING TO THE LORD, PRAYING ABOUT ALL THAT WAS GOING ON IN THE EARTH, and began to get up to walk towards the area to go up the stairway and all of a sudden I felt this presence of the Lord come on me, and I know when this happens, he’s getting ready to speak to me or show me something, or I’m being called into immediate intercession for something. 
 
I’VE JUST LEARNED TO STOP AND STAND THERE AND SAY, “LORD WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT ME TO DO, TO KNOW?
I’M HERE, SPEAK TO ME.”
I was just absolutely feeling weak, just like I was going to faint. I was under such a strong drawing to his presence, and so I began to walk and went upstairs and went into my room, a guest room we have, but I use it as my reading and praying room, and sat down in the chair there.  About the time I sat down I was, (and I share this, it’s so uncomfortable to share when you have these experiences) because the world and often in charismatic environments, either they mock what happens to someone or unfortunately, in Spirit-filled charismatic environments, things get hyper sensationalized, to the point that someone’s having a vision every moment, every five minutes they’ve got a word from the Lord and they’re rushing to post it or print it (and that’s up to them), but we tend to get very critical and may be jaded that when something authentic really happens to someone we immediately put it through this filter of,  “I don’t know”,  and so I understand your possible hesitancy to say, “we’ll see”.
 
THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH TESTING A VISION OR WORD OF GOD, YOU ABSOLUTELY SHOULD, but what I’m saying to you is I come before you with this because the Lord has a warning and a promise in it, and I am compelled by him to share this as quickly and as succinctly as I can with you now, to the best of my ability, by the Spirit of God.
 
So, I was sitting in the chair and I am now suddenly standing out in a barren area, up on a slight hill, and I was looking out over the land in front of me, and in the back distance I can see some slight hills so I kind of recognize the horizon, maybe some foothills in Colorado, and there was a sun trying to somewhat set in the background, like it was at the low level before sunset in Autumn in Colorado. It kind of just rests there in a yellow type of reddish tint.
I was standing there looking at all of this, my physical body was standing looking and yet I was above it in the spirit, watching this take place and the Holy Spirit was with me, instructing me about what I was to be observing.
 
NEXT TO ME WAS JESUS;  HE WAS STANDING THERE BY MY SIDE.
Now before I step forward I want you to know that I had no idea why in this vision Jesus was the way he was, until after I’d had the vision because a week later we had been helping care for a little foster baby girl, and a brand new baby grandson. Our youngest son had gotten food poisoning, so we went down to help care for these children. The little girl tended to be very ill because she needed medical care and was forever getting respiratory infections.  So, we were cleaning and doing everything parents do to help and assist, and of course, holding the new grand baby!
 
I WAS IN THERE WITH CLOROX, GETTING “EVERYTHING” WITH CLOROX and my face was probably down in germs, so what we did not know at the time, is that my son probably had a second round of Covid, and was reacting to it, it was a different strain, but the little girl had RSV, so both my husband and I came home, and shortly within 48 hours began with symptoms of massive RSV also the “big gun” Covid strain that everybody got, and in that process it was weeks of fighting to get well. Colorado forbade any kind of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Of course we’d been taking all the vitamin protocols and so on, but we were able through missionaries, to get ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, but we did not know we had what we had until it got so bad. 
 
WE KNEW WE WERE PRETTY MUCH ON OUR OWN WITH THE LORD, and we didn’t want anybody coming to take care of us, because we didn’t want to infect them.
 
I WAS LYING ON THE BED AND, JESUS WAS STANDING BY THE BED. I WAS AT A POINT WHERE I KNEW I HAD ONLY A FEW SHALLOW BREATHS LEFT, THAT THIS WAS IT!
I was walking in the “valley” of the shadow of death, and I have learned since then, that there is death and there’s “the valley of the shadow of death” where you were in the shadow of it, that it’s right next to you, but there’s a shadow of death over you, and it says that, “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you are with me”, and sure enough, during that time when I had the last two shallow breaths that I thought that I was going to take, my words to Jesus were, “if I die and I don’t wake up, I have to sleep now, then I’m with you.” I was travailing and crying for a good 48 hours because I was sad. Then the other part of me said, “Lord, if I wake up and I’m still here then use me to the fullest all that you can until it IS my time!”
 
I WAS EXPECTING BELLS AND WHISTLES AND ANGELS,
AND YOU KNOW! THE SMELL OF FRANKINCENSE AND SINGING BIRDS, AND THE GLORY OF GOD TO COME AND RAISE ME UP OFF THE BED!  
I REALLY DID EXPECT IT!
  
BUT WHAT HAPPENED INSTEAD was that there was a steady “non-emotional”, INTENSE PRESENCE that stood by my side, and the voice spoke “I AM”, and it was with authority! 
 
IT WASN’T MESSING WITH ME AND ANYTHING EMOTIONAL. It was a fact that whatever he was in that moment, sustained me.  I could see in the spirit a sash across him and I could see him holding my hand.  I was breathing so shallowly and I said, “I’m sorry Jesus, I have to go to sleep. Whatever happens, I trust you.”
And I did! 
 
WHEN I WOKE UP I WAS TOTALLY AWARE AND AWAKE AND KNEW THAT I HAD LIVED, (it was many hours later) and I immediately heard the Holy Spirit say, “Start the Ivermectin!” 
From that point on I won’t go any further, because that’s when the healing process began, but I wanted to tell you about Jesus standing by my side looking at me intently, holding my hand in the spirit. There was not any kind of crying and he wasn’t showing sadness or compassion or emotion. He WAS the sovereign presence holding me together.
 
 
 NOW WE GO BACK TO THE VISION.
I am standing there, Jesus is with me I’m looking out over land, and the land was so parched! The ground was curling up and looked dry like rectangle sizes, you could just probably pull a piece up like a slab of cardboard that has sat out in the sun, and was curled up around the corners. The entire landmass in front of me was covered in this parched, dry desert, and I was looking at it saying, “it’s so dry! There’s just nothing of moisture here!”
 
I was asking Jesus, “What am I looking at, what am I seeing?” Jesus was just looking at me saying, “You’re learning, I want you to observe, you’re to learn to take this in.”  I kept looking and seeing this, as I was looking out further on the horizon. This was to the left of me Jesus was standing to the right of me.
 
I looked up past the shoulder of Jesus and in the distance to the right or him, I saw a swirling, boiling looking red cloud, and it was the color of terra-cotta, like garden pots that we used to put plants in, that earthy clay soil color. I’m watching this dust cloud boil and boil and grow larger and larger, and I’m getting a little concerned because it’s a pretty high in the sky, but it’s coming our direction, it’s kind of at a vanishing point angle. Here it comes, and it’s starting to make a noise, it’s swishing and beginning to drop the dust down on the ground and blow across this dry parched area as it began to come my direction. I was concerned and Jesus took me by the hand. It was again, “I AM here no matter what happens, no matter what comes, I AM!” 
 
Then I suddenly begin to see that the cloud is being pushed by something! Something is driving this cloud forward and it was a sleek dynamic train. I tried to make it look right in my art piece that I created for it, it’s not quite right, it was more sleek and dynamic, but it was the best I could come up with.
 
This train had these massive wheels that were turning, and you could hear the power, the dynamic power, the clicking, nothing was missing, not one cylinder was off, it was churning and churning and chuffing and chuffing. Nothing was going to stop the destination of this train.  It was driving a storm forward pushing the storm.
 
The sound became so loud and powerful that you tremble at the strength and the might, and the power of the force of this train! As it was moving up above us, the dirt of this cloud of dust was sifting down over Jesus and me. It was such a fine, silty reddish soil. I could see it gathering in the beard of Jesus, then his hair and in the vision I had much longer hair, it was falling down into my hair and on our arms when I was holding his hand. I could see it gathering on the sleeve of my arm and on his sleeve. Jesus kept looking at me, and as long as I kept referencing back to him as the storm was dumping this mass amount of whatever it was, the substance that was being driven by this force, driven out - driven over, as long as I looked at him, I had a non-emotional response, but a steady understanding that knew I was being held by a power greater than anything that could ever come against me.
 
This went on and on. The dust was so clogged and cloudy that I could just see the silhouette of Jesus, but I had his hand and we held our hands and stood there as this loud, powerful, dynamic train began to just roar over the top of us. Then I heard a voice shout out over the sound of all this and it was firm!  “It’s DUNAMIS! Dunamis! The Dunamis Power!”
 
I STOOD THERE JUST SAYING, “DUNAMIS, I KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS IN THE GREEK, IT MEANS DYNAMITE, DYNAMO, (saying this to myself in the spirit).”  I’m standing here in this vision trying to remember the power of that word as the train was passing and that word was written on the train, as I watched it finally pass by and begin to go further up in the sky and then pass by us.
 
SUDDENLY IT GOT QUIETER, AND IT WAS AN EARTH SHAKING VIBRATING STORM THAT WAS DRIVEN BY THIS FORCEFUL DUNAMIS POWER OF GOD.  Again, the Holy Spirit and I were standing up at the back watching this, watching Jesus and me at the same time, and the Holy Spirit was saying to me,  “watch, learn, observe.”
 
ONCE AGAIN JESUS TURNED HIS HEAD AND LOOKED OUT OVER THE VALLEY AND INDICATED TO ME, “I WANT YOU TO LOOK OUT HERE”.
AS I LOOKED, THE DUST HAD BEGUN TO SETTLE AND I COULD IDENTIFY THAT WE HAVEN’T BEEN MOVED,
Nothing was different, I’m in the same place, except the Horizon in the background looks the same, the sun is the exact same place it was, just about ready set, sitting in the same position in the sky, but the land that has been parched and curled up and dry, every single crevice or crevasse, every single surface was covered in this thick layer of this red dust. It had completely transformed into a different look, and different land.
 
AT THAT POINT I WAS JUST IN AWE AND I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT ALL MEANT AND THEN...
...WHAM!
I AM BACK OUT OF THE VISION AND SITTING IN MY CHAIR, gasping at what have I just had happen to me, and of course I started crying!
I WAS ASKING GOD TO SHOW ME “Father! Father! Jesus! Holy Spirit! What have you just shown me? What are you saying?”
 
Then I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “These are things to come.
Learn about them, prepare, and I’ll tell you when to share.”

THIS MESSAGE WILL CONFIRM MANY OF THE THINGS
THAT YOU HAVE STARTED TO SEE COME TO PASS
 
I’d like to welcome you to my podcast today with a greeting to those who are listening and who were wondering where is the podcast that I had promised regarding a very intense, vivid, open vision, that I had from the Lord (that I had said I was going to share with you the following week) from my last podcast.
 
AS I BEGAN TO PREPARE FOR THAT, I JUST COULD NOT GET IT TO COME TOGETHER, and I was striving and I was fighting it. So I got quiet before the Lord and asked him what I was to do. As I was in prayer, I had the impression from the Lord that there was something that I needed to prepare. He began to remind me that I had not done a review of the year 2022. Now, I usually do this midyear, after I’ve had a word at the beginning of the year from the Lord, or, that year that we are in.
 
AS I BEGAN TO PREPARE AND LOOK AT THAT WORD,  I realized that it was in fact, something that I needed to use as a springboard to share what the Lord had given me in the vision.
And then the word came to me from the Lord,
“First A Review Before The New”.
 
The Lord was letting me know that there was a little bit of reviewing, and again, sometimes we need to look at what the Lord has spoken to us previously and check our hearts, and also see if we have obeyed him, or if there is something we missed before we can really get a full handle on what he is trying to say to us currently.
I’M GOING TO REVIEW THAT WITH YOU FIRST, AND, ALSO THE LORD BROUGHT BACK TO ME A VERY STRONG WORD THAT I HAD IN THE YEAR OF 2016.   IT WAS TITLED  "THE GREAT COMING WHIRLWIND" AND IT WAS A PROPHETIC INSIGHT FROM THE LORD.
 
WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT WHIRLWIND RIGHT NOW,
SO THE WORD HAS TAKEN TIME TO DEVELOP AND TO PROCESS
AND TO COME TO PASS.
 
I had several of you comment to me that this for some reason, struck a chord with you and that you were deeply moved, especially one of my good friends who is a pastor in St. Louis Missouri, a pastor by the name of Harry Schroeder, who said the seemed to really, stand out to him, so thank you Harry for letting me know back then that the Lord did hold on to something in peoples hearts with this.
That is the second part of the review that the Lord would have me share again, in order to make sure that we have listened or “listen to” what the Holy Spirit has said, and what he is saying to his churches.
 
THIS WILL CONFIRM TO MANY OF THE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE BEGUN SEE COME TO PASS, but needed a reference point to remind you, that you had heard from the Lord, or that what I’m sharing with you as confirmation, for the things that you have been questioning and wanting to somehow have answers to.
 
BEFORE WE BEGIN, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY HELLO TO OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN SINGAPORE. I have noticed that many of you are listening to the podcast, and I feel like the Lord would help me encourage you to not be afraid at this time, to be bold and courageous in sharing the love of Christ.
I KEEP HAVING THE NAME OF SOMEONE BY THE NAME OF “TING” WHICH IS SPELLED  - T  I  N  G -  being impressed upon my heart by the Lord. 
This name, (I think it’s a female) but the Lord just simply said. “Tell Ting that you have been called to be an evangelist to your nation, and that the Lord wants you to be bold and courageous, and he wants you to know that if you open wide your mouth, he will fill it with the words that will begin to change hearts. Start with a small gathering in your home and begin to just lovingly share, as with dear friends, your own story. You don’t need to make it a big loud story, nor do you need to perform. Simply say,  “I want to tell you the story of what has changed my life”.  The Lord is going to enter that room with his Holy Spirit Presence, and hearts are going to be tenderly touched, as you boldly and courageously share.  Jeremiah 1:8-9 and 10 say,  “Be not afraid of their faces for I am with you to deliver you says the Lord, then the Lord put forth his hand and touched my mouth and the Lord said to me, “behold I’ve put my words in your mouth.
See! I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and pull down and to destroy, and to throw down, and to build and to plant.”
 
THE TITLE OF THIS PODCAST IS CALLED,
“A REVIEW BEFORE THE NEW” OR, “A RE-view” BEFORE THE NEW.
In 2022 I had a word for the Lord for that year, and I’m going to share with you “in review”, the prophetic word from the Spirit of God, that is most important and a kind of an introductory for what we’re about to enjoy next podcast regarding this vision that I had.
I believe the vision is right where we are literally moving into right now, in the world, in the Body of Christ, and literally all over the globe.
 
The prophetic word from the Spirit of God was/is called,
“FOR THOSE FACING THE NARROWING PATH”, (2022)
The word said this;
“Darker and broader and louder come the shouts of world to draw you into its intricate webs.
These webs of deceit are spun with silken tongues and with the softness of the promise of an easier life.
There is a reckoning coming to those that sell lies and imprison those who buy their wares.
But for those who are determined to not walk on a fence, trying to balance between their own thinking and me, there will be a “Divine Might” that will empower them to continue down the narrowing way.
 Where does this narrowing journey lead? 
What is the payoff at the end?
As you become more determined and lay aside the things that have hindered you over and over again from fully entering into the deeper places with me, a lightness and freedom will propel you toward a place of Living Light.
That Light is Me, and you will soon know Me in a different way than you have in past years and seasons.
My one warning to many is that they cannot argue that the path is “too narrow”. 
What mankind might call “rigid” I call “Straight and Direct”. 
If you choose to alter the plans that I have set down for your protection and safety, you will grieve my Spirit and allow a searing of your conscience to override the truths that you know deep in your heart.
“The path of those who do right is straight and smooth. I, who am upright, make the way of the righteous level.” -Isaiah 26:7
 
“The Narrowing” has begun to increase, and the love for it has decreased among those who choose to remain passive to conviction and pure living. 
Allow my Holy Spirit to move freely again.
I know what I must do, to break the constraints of man. Let me move!
Are you afraid that I might be ridiculed?
Or, are you more concerned for your image and patterns before men? 
 
“Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. Do not scoff at prophecies, But test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.”
-I Thessalonians 5:19-21
 
Choose the “Narrowing Way”.  For I, Am there. 
Choose the pathway of “rightness” with me, even when others scoff at your “narrow mindedness”.
When the days become darker and the world tilts and twists in further unrestrained darkness, You will be the carrier of My Light, which can lead the lukewarm and lost, down the narrow, but safe, and integral way, to Me.
 
“THE GREAT COMING WHIRLWIND”
 
By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow
 
“The LORD is slow to get angry, but his power is great,  And he never lets the guilty go unpunished. 
He displays his power in the whirlwind and the storm. The billowing clouds are the dust beneath his feet.” -Nahum 1:3 
 
We Are In High-Pressured Days That Seem As If Everything Around Us
Is In A Great Whirlwind.
The noise coming from the media, the weather patterns, the sounds of war, the sounds of people crying out for “Justice” and the sounds of people crying out because they feel like there's been too much “In-justice”.
 
The Lord Would Like To Speak These Words In This Hour To Those That Have Ears To Hear. 
I know there are many prophetic words being ushered into the media outlets by so many people and many have been spoken out in meetings and conferences.  I wish that I could tell you that every single voice you're listening to and every promise that is being made to you regarding great wealth, great promotion, and great open doors are accurate. But deep down inside of your spirit-man, there is something stirring that you cannot explain. It's that knowing that something is coming, that something has begun out there in the world that we cannot see, but that we know in the spirit.
 
We Are In A Time Like None Other On And In The Earth. 
But, we do have reference points to go to that tell of similar warnings and events that took place in the past. We can remember when Lot chose to go for the things that were more pleasing to his flesh and where he would have more abundant provision and opportunity for business trade, but in the end he was stuck in the city where there was nothing but illicit sex, graft, stealing and robbing, and eventually total desolation and demolition. Even as the Lord provided a way of escape, his wife still had the smell, the stench of the worldly life in her heart, and she turned around to look one more time, fondly, over her shoulder, at the home that she dreaded to leave behind.
 
Look At The Days Of Noah When He Was Mocked And Laughed At. He did not build that famous ark in a month! No! It took a long, long period of time to build the ark out in the middle of nowhere!   A simple study of the Bible text shows that the time from when God told Noah to build the ark, till the rain fell was no longer than about 75 years.
And yet he obeyed God. If we read carefully, it says that the Lord himself drew the animals to the ark. First, it is necessary to note that Noah was not told to gather the animals. He was commanded only to build the Ark, large enough for all the animals, and simply receive the animals when they arrived. "And of every living thing of all flesh, . . . two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive" (Genesis 6:19-20).
 
I Want To Encourage All Of You To Understand Clearly
That There Is A Whirlwind Coming.
In Jeremiah 23:19 God is talking about a whirlwind that He has sent—a violent windstorm. The false prophets have said, "No bad is coming" (verse 17). God says, "Do they ever listen to me? I've said, 'I'm sending a whirlwind, and it's going to fall on the heads of the wicked.' How dare they say that everything is going to be okay!”?
What is coming is bigger and broader and wider and more destructive than anything else that we have ever seen.
I don't know if it's a nuclear war!
I don't know if it's bizarre weather patterns!
And I don't know if it's not just a whirlwind of new kinds of ideas being foisted upon mankind.
 
What I Do Know Is This. 
There are people who are aware in the spirit that the only stronghold in place right now, a place of immunity and safety, is in prayer and in surrendering to all that the Lord is asking of them.
Many of you are stretched beyond the point that no one can understand. Their financial resources have been given and given again to help others, and yet their own supply seems to be dwindling. There are those who have poured into the lives of others, poured into businesses, poured into mentoring and training others, and yet it appears as if when they reach out there's nothing left in the pantry for them. 
 
The Lord Wants Those Of You Who Have Been Giving, Giving, Giving
- To Check Your Hearts One More Time.
If HE told you to give and to serve and to sacrifice, then you can be guaranteed one thing. He does not withhold from those who have been faithful.
“But this I say, He which sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully. - 2 Corinthians 9:6 
"And God, who supplies seed for the sower and bread to eat, will also supply you with all the seed you need and will make it grow and produce a rich harvest from your generosity." -2 Corinthians 9:10
 
I want to encourage you right now in the spirit to understand the time that we are in, is a time when nothing is making sense when trying to apply the past patterns and methods or, the natural way of living. 
 
It's Going To Take A Determined, Dogged, Supernatural Approach
To Understand The Seasons The Days And The Times.
God already understands all of this, but He is not going to communicate to people who will then try to communicate it in natural terms to those who don't have ears to hear. He's going to communicate truth and wisdom to those were willing to allow their own hearts to go into the fire of refining and changing the way that they have done things in the past.
 
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.”
-Psalm 111:10
 
DIFFICULTIES REQUIRE NEW STRATEGIES.
Hard times require sober minds and the determination not to be towed under by destruction and despair.
 
We Are Not To Be Focusing On The Noise In The Whirlwind Around Us In This World, even though it sure does draw our attention from the left and the right! We are to instead, focus on a specific path, a narrowing of vision and a “one direction” place.
 
 And what exactly does that all mean?
It means that we are to seek the Face of the Father. 
And I mean seek and to seek, and to seek again. Continually.
“Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.”
-1 Chronicles 16:11 
 
WE HAVE GOT TO BREAK DOWN THOSE THINGS
THAT ARE HOLDING BACK THE MOVE OF GOD
IN ALL DENOMINATIONS OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH. 
 
It will only come by Seeking His Face,
Seeing His Heart for people
And 
Hearing His Plans for them, and for us!
Oh how the Father wants to bring a fresh move of his presence through His word and through His glorious goodness and mercy!
 
HE IS GOING TO BRING CORRECTION TO ALL DENOMINATIONS 
All walks that claim to have Jesus Christ as the head of the faith! So many smugly think that because they have been charisma tics or that they have been “spirit-filled” they have a higher attained level of wisdom and discernment! This is nothing but plain arrogance. If anything, there should be a more refined level of humility and thankfulness for the fact that we have access through the gifts to flow in the fruits of the Spirit.
 
“The LORD Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted (and they will be humbled).” -Isaiah 2:12
 
THE HOLY SPIRIT WOULD SAY THESE WORDS TO US TODAY
“Yes, the winds are blowing and they are harsh winds and some are absolutely destructive winds! Everything that does not stand under the power of my word and is not anchored in Me shall be shifted and blown and shaken, and at times the winds of drastic change will draw away the dross from the wheat.
I am sifting and shaking, and shaking and sifting again and again until my people understand they do not live in a time where making demands and commands to Me operate well.
I am looking for a people who will bow low enough before Me and get quiet and seek My will, MY WILL for planet earth! This world is fading away quickly and mankind is corrupted each day more and more to go the way of the flesh.
YOU MUST PUT AWAY THE NOISE!  You must put away the noise in your life and enter into the place were in the center of the storm is the eye. 
MY EYE is upon the righteous, My eye is upon those that are fruitful and faithful, and fruitful to Me may be different than fruitful to you!
 You cannot serve two masters, yet many have tried to justify the shutting away of My convicting voice when I have told them to go back and make right the situations where they have done grievous damage to others who are supposedly their family members in Christ.
If you cannot repent and get relationships right in the Kingdom now, I cannot use you to forge new relationships in the future in My Kingdom. If you have bitterness, anger and jealousy in your heart, it will manifest with shaming and name-calling, as well as condescending and destroying another's capability to serve me well.
The days of selfish ambition and immaturity are closely coming to an end. My light, My life, My word and My ways are perfect! 
I will not deviate from My plan for the Kingdom of God in the earth. I am looking for a people who will not listen to the accusation of others nor slander and destroy their brother and sisters because of another's opinion, or perhaps because they themselves were brought a loving correction or warning and instead, turned around and shamed the messenger.
I see you all and I am fully aware of the things that have been done in My name to hide behind selfish ambition. A judgment time is coming! 
Know this. I am about to expose those who abuse the gifts, abuse their titles and abuse the finances that I have deemed for the kingdom and I'm going to bring their names to the forefront to save their souls!
Yes, the whirlwinds may blow, and the storms and winds will be continuing to cycle and swirl. But I'm looking for those who are willing to stay in the center of My Eye, where there is quiet and there is calm and there is discernment, direction and wisdom for these devastating days.
To those in the center of My Eye, I will pour out a wisdom beyond mankind's understanding and they will rise up and have the words that will bring direction, correction, and light into dark places.
The eyes of the Lord keep watch over knowledge, But he overthrows the words of the traitor. -Proverbs 22:12
"For a man's ways are before the eyes of the Lord, and he ponders all his paths." -Proverbs 5:21
Stand prepared, for I'm doing this thing regardless of whether man is ready or not.
I am that I Am and I will have my way in the earth, says the Lord of Hosts.
For this is what the high and exalted One says-- He who lives forever, whose name is holy: "I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.” -Isaiah 57:15

By Mary Lindow
TODAY I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE TRUTH AND REALITY OF HOW GOD, AND WHY GOD USES DREAMS AND VISIONS, WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE, WORDS OF WISDOM AND PROPHETIC WORDS TO DIRECT US, ENCOURAGE US, AND TO PROTECT US!
I’m also sharing a very recent dream that I had and how it confirmed God’s plan for a local church that Steve and I were invited to minister at.
SO OFTEN PEOPLE THINK THE LORD ONLY SPEAKS TO “SPECIFIC PEOPLE” AND THAT HE CANNOT SPEAK TO THEM IN THE SAME WAY. So, I think we need to understand clearly as believers what the Lord said in Jeremiah 33:3.
‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
He also says in the book of James if any man lacks wisdom let him ask of God who will give to all liberally and will not withhold it!
The one big catchall is that people think God‘s going to speak to them at the same time or in the same way or in the same fashion he has previously, and so when they don’t hear from him the same way all the time, they wonder somehow if they’ve missed it.
 
TIME AND TIME AGAIN THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT NIGHT VISIONS AND DREAMS THAT THE LORD USED TO INSTRUCT HIS PEOPLE, AND TO PROTECT THEM! 
Here are a few Bible verses that give examples of biblical dreams, provide guidance on how to verify the source of this type of revelation, and show God's purpose in using them.
Amos 3:7 – "Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets."
Daniel 1:17 – "To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds."
Job 33:14-15 – "For God does speak—now one way, now another—though no one perceives it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds. 
ONE THING ABOUT HEARING FROM THE LORD IS THIS. 
There has to be an element of the Word of God undergirding anything you receive in a vision, in a dream, or through other people who are used in the prophetic gifts of word of knowledge and word of wisdom! It is out of the word of God that prophecy then is solidified!
 
I’M GOING TO SHARE WITH YOU ONE OF MY MOST RECENT EXPERIENCES to encourage you to know that as we act upon what the Holy Spirit shows us, he can then move corporately. He likes to move among groups of people!
 
STEVE AND I WERE RECENTLY INVITED TO SPEAK AT A WONDERFUL FELLOWSHIP NOT TOO FAR FROM OUR HOME IN A CITY CALLED BRIGHTON, COLORADO. So, we were praying about it and told the pastor and his wife that we wanted to pray first before we committed to saying we would come, because, we wanted to make sure what we were supposed to share, and to be sure it was the right timing.
We had gone to bed one evening and I had gotten back out of bed up to get some water and was just restless and not ready to sleep. I read for a while and finally got tired enough to go back to bed and fell into a deep sleep. 
I THEN HAD A VERY VIVID DREAM. In the dream I was standing up behind a pulpit or podium, and Steve was standing there with me and I looked out into the congregation and I saw a young man who was very tall and had on a gray colored t-shirt, he had a beard and had a baseball cap on and was wearing black framed glasses. He was halfway between the congregation and about six seats in and he was to my right as I was facing him. 
AS I WAS STANDING THERE, I FELT THE HOLY SPIRIT STANDING BEHIND ME. He said to me, “People want to receive their prayer language. If you will tell people exactly what I want you to say, I’m going to move on and within them today. They’re going to experience the fullness of my joy with their prayer language by speaking in tongues.” 
So, in the dream I said these words, “I had a dream and the Holy Spirit showed me that they were people here who would be moved on by the Holy Spirit and will receive the blessing of praying tongues, and there are many here who have been afraid of it or who have not been able to get a release for some reason when they were prayed for. As I stand here and begin to pray the Holy Spirit‘s going to come on you in a very gentle and soft presence, and we’re just going to all lift our voices and in that moment and you’re going to be able to be released to pray in tongues.”  
In the dream, I was watching the young man and I pointed out him and I said,  “You are one who has been wanting the Lord to bless you with speaking of tongues aren’t you” and he raised his hand up and was crying and he said “yes”, and in that moment I just said to him that the Holy Spirit is gently touching you right now, just begin to open your mouth and begin to speak, and he did! He immediately began to pray in this beautiful prayer language and then the whole place erupted with people cheering and crying and the room was filled with the Spirit of God and the whole room was lifted up in worship and praise to God with people praying in tongues and laughing joyfully. There was lots of crying and worship, because they could feel the love and kindness of the Lord everywhere.
 
I THEN WENT BACK TO SLEEP AND SLEPT DEEPLY I GUESS, BECAUSE WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE MORNING I WAS AWARE THAT I HAD SLEPT LONG AND HARD.Steve was already up and was drinking coffee and reading, so I told him about the dream and that the Holy Spirit had said that there were people at this church (the church’s name is “Fearless Church”) that had been wanting to receive their prayer language and speak in tongues, but they just had not had the release, or, anyone help them with that. So I told him that the Holy Spirit said if we will tell them that the Holy Spirit said that there were those to be filled today, the Lord would honor it and he would do a great and precious thing in that service.
 
NOW, WE HAD NOT YET BEEN IN THIS COUPLE’S NEW CHURCH FACILITY BEFORE BECAUSE WE HAD KNOWN THEM FROM THEIR OLDER BUILDING LOCATION.
When we walked in, it was exactly like the building that I saw in my dream which was amazing, because I didn’t even realize it until we walked in, so I knew this was definitely the time and the place for what God was wanting to do with this special meeting.
After very beautiful worship, Steve got up and began to share his message and was teaching. I was just kind of looking around and then paying attention to what Steve was sharing and you could begin to feel this calm and peace come over all of us. 
 
STEVE SHARED ABOUT THE LOVE OF THE FATHER AND ABOUT HOW MUCH GOD IS CALLING US TO A PLACE OF GREATER HUNGER FOR HIS PRESENCE.
As he began to wind up that part of the message, I joined him on the platform and began to share about what words of knowledge and prophetic ministry, (what they were), and as I looked out into the congregation, there was the guy halfway down the middle to the right about six seats in that I had seen in my dream.  He had on the exact same gray T-shirt, he had the beard he had the black glasses and he was very tall.
 
I JUST BEGAN TO ACT OUT AND SPEAK EXACTLY WHAT I SAW IN THE DREAM THAT THE LORD HAD GIVEN TO ME AND I SAID THE EXACT WORDS, and sure enough this young man lifts up his hand and we began to lift our voices and he was immediately overwhelmed with the power of God, and began to speak out in his prayer language.
 
WE BEGAN TO TELL OTHER PEOPLE TO BEGIN TO LIFT THEIR VOICES and do the same thing, and the entire room began to speak out in their tongues or they were praising God or just praying in English, and some people were praising in Spanish, but for a long time there were many people were just spontaneously being filled with the Holy Spirit and speaking with the evidence of tongues in languages they had never spoken. 
NOW, THIS LED TO A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF JOYAND ALL WERE SHOCKED AND IN AWE AT THE PRESENCE OF GODSUDDENLY OVERWHELMING THEIR CONGREGATION!
 They had been through a very difficult time since they had had such lockdown and restriction problems and pressure from the local government. There had been a lot of grief and death and a lack of continuity in the people. It seemed as if the Holy Spirit just wanted to come in and bring this peace and hope to them.
 
NOT TOO FAR AFTER THAT THEN, WE BEGAN TO MINISTER IN THE PROPHETIC GIFTS OF WORD OF KNOWLEDGE AND WORD OF WISDOM.People stayed for an additional full hour! We did not ask them to do this!  They were hungry to be loved, they were hungry to be at peace, and they were like gentle lambs receiving the word of the Lord, even some words that were not easy to receive.  But the atmosphere was primed, simply by a dream that the Holy Spirit had given to me, and then asking us to obey him and act on what we had seen and heard in the dream.
 
WHAT I’M SAYING ABOUT ALL OF THIS IS THAT,SOMETIMES IT TAKES JUST A DREAM OR A VISION OR A THOUGHTTHAT COMES TO YOUR MIND WHILE YOU’RE GOING ABOUT YOUR DAILY BUSINESS.
It is a catalyst then that the Holy Spirit can use to open the door to a sweeter or greater move of God in a meeting or a gathering, or in a coffee shop, depending on where the Lord happens to have you go.
He knows exactly what to do in every situation that we are sent into, and knowing the timing of the Lord was right for us to go minister to this body of believers, was all because of the fruit of prayer.
 
I NOW WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SHARE OR UPDATE YOUABOUT SOMETHING THAT THE LORD HAD ME SHARE A FEW MONTHS AGO REGARDING CANADA.
I will include the link right below for you to go read or listen to the entire word again, but again, when the Holy Spirit begins to speak he does confirm these things.
LINK: https://tinyurl.com/xzk2hvh8
WORD FOR CANADA STARTS AT MINUTE MARKER 11:34
 
MANY OF YOU ARE AWARE OF THE THINGS GOING ON AT THE CANADIAN BORDER AND OF COURSE, THE ENTIRE GLOBE IS FIGHTING TYRANNY. 
In this prophetic word the Lord had me share something that I did not understand at the time, but I knew that I needed to deliver the word AT that time. Now in review, it is happening and coming to pass.
 
HERE’S WHAT THAT WORD SAID.
“Canada will experience one of its most prosperous seasons ever known, for a short season.
 The Lord would have Canada know that they must deal fairly with the wealth that they will produce and pay back the First Native families, and with Godly equity. 
If this is not addressed with wisdom and integrity, Canada will have to pass through the sorrows of disobedience.
Canadian Intercessors are being awakened and called up to stand in the place of prayer for its leaders and tribes.
Now is the time for soberness, It is not a time for silliness and laughter. 
It is a sober day, with a command for sober prayers. 
 "Accordingly then, let us not sleep, as the rest do, but let us keep wide awake (alert, watchful, cautious, and on our guard) and let us be sober (calm, collected, and circumspect)". - 1 Thessalonians 5:6 
“So get up! Stand UP! Be Purposeful,” says the Lord!
How do you not know that through your borders I can bring a North American Wave of Justice and Restoration?” 
 
As you have just heard or have just read, the Lord knew these events were going to take place on the border of the United States and Canada way before I ever spoke it out.I am certain that the Lord spoke these words or similar words to other men and women of God.
 
MONTHS AGO HE BREATHED THESE WORDS OUT SO THAT OTHERS MIGHT HEAR THEM AND PRAY ABOUT THEM.I believe that when the Lord gives a word especially specific to any nation, it is first a call to prayer and repentance. From that then, the outbreak of moves of God can take place.
 
I ENCOURAGE YOU TO NOT FEAR THE SUPERNATURAL. If you are grounded in the Word of God and a person filled with the spirit, God is going to speak to your spirit and instruct you in the way you should go. He is not going to talk to your mind, because you will talk yourself out of anything that takes risk or costs you laying down your own intellectual reckoning.
 
WE ARE LIVING IN A TIME WHERE HEARING FROM GOD  WILL LITERALLY SAVE YOUR LIFE. It is not a time to hope we have everybody else hear from God, and tell us what to do.I am almost certain that anything I share today is something the Lord has been stirring in the hearts of the majority of you that are listening. And it is confirming things deep in your spirit that you needed to have sorted out in order for you to proceed.
 
MY PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY IS THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THERE IS A STIRRING IN THE HEART OF GOD TO MOVE UPON HIS PEOPLE IN A DYNAMIC AND EXTREME POWER THAT SHAKES THE CORE OF EVIL IN THE WORLD.
It will cause a great upheaval, because darkness resists light. 
But light penetrates past darkness. 
 
YOU ARE A LIGHT IN THIS WORLD, BECAUSE OF THE LAMP OF CHRIST INSIDE OF YOU. 
Take the bushel basket off and let that light shine.
Yes it may cost you something.
If it doesn’t cost you something to be strong in the Lord then we are pretty much guaranteed to be lukewarm and passive.
 
THESE ARE THE DAYS THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR YOU AND I.
He planned for you to be here today in this very hour in this very moment. He has words to speak out of your mouth that are his words that will help break the darkness over peoples lives that have no ability to understand how captive they are to the narratives of the world.
 
Don’t underestimate the power of God’s words coming out of your mouth when you are talking to someone. 
It takes just one anointed obedient act to set a captive free.It takes just one obedient act done while stepping out in courage to open the ears of someone who has been deafened to truth most of their life.
If the words are rejected, understand that a seed went inside of them and was planted. Someone else may come along and water that seed, and someone else may harvest what comes from that.
But in the end you were obedient to plant the seed, and all of the joy and the glory and honor of a new soul or someone set free, goes to Jesus.
 
Psalm 31:24 is what I want to speak over each of you today!!
TAKE COURAGE!
“Be strong and take heart, 
All you who hope in the LORD.”

 Prophetic Insights From the Holy Spirit
through Mary Lindow
 
Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'?
I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields!
They are ripe for harvest.  - John 4:35
 
 
PLANT YOUR FEET AND DETERMINE NOT TO LOOK BACKWARD.
The enemy will assault you to press you backwards.
Have I not said, "without a prophetic vision the people perish and go backwards?” 
I am ready to revisit areas that have advanced my purposes but retreated at the day of battle. 
 
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE SHAKING OF GOVERNMENTS. 
There must be a confrontation of governments. My government on earth is arising and causing entire regions to shake. I am restoring and rising up leaders. 
 
IN THE PAST SEASON, MY GIFT WITHIN LEADERS COULD NOT FIND ITS PLACE IN MY GOVERNMENT. However, now I am causing governments and gifts to divinely “find one another" and to connect.
 
This is creating great shakings from region to region throughout this land.
This alignment is creating a shift in civil government.
 
TODAY IS A DAY OF BREAKING OFF THAT WHICH CAUSED MY LEADERS TO RETREAT FROM THE VISITATIONS OF THE PAST. 
Many advanced and then quit and retreated! 
 
NOW IS A TIME TO ADVANCE! 
I am restoring many of you to lead this advance. 
There will be great connections occurring in My Body in this advance. 
This will be the beginning of confronting sorceries, astrology, and witchcraft, which have produced control. I am sending you forward and I am releasing supernatural wisdom. This wisdom will cast down the sorcerers, astrologers, and those practicing witchcraft throughout regions. 
 
LOVE AND CONFIDENCE IS ARISING IN MY BODY. 
The past three years have been a time of restoring a level of worship, humility, meekness and purity in your calling and boldness in the choices you make! 
 
FROM WORSHIP YOU WILL NOW MOVE INTO A NEW SUPERNATURAL DIMENSION. 
Do not fear this call to the supernatural!
The Baal systems of this nation will begin to strengthen to keep my new refreshing strategies from forming and advancing in your region.
Do not fear these systems, but keep confronting through prayer, the powers that have attached themselves to the structures of governments in your region. 
 
I WILL MAKE YOU INTO A SUPERNATURAL PEOPLE
WHO CAN RISE UP AND OVERTHROW
THAT WHICH HAS CONTROLLED YOU IN THE PAST.
 
MY PEOPLE ARE BECOMING A NEW, SHARP THRESHING INSTRUMENT.
This threshing is producing shaking.
This shaking is releasing harvest.
The harvest will not rot in the fields of neglect or laziness. 
 
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A POWERFUL CONSUMING FIRE. 
When these occult structures are overthrown, consuming fire will sweep through this nation. And you will set my name upon the high places!
My all-consuming light will address the idols and temples of religious shame and control. 
 
I HAVE GIVEN SO MANY WHO CALL THEMSELVES “MY ANOINTED” MUCH, MUCH, TIME TO DEAL WITH THE HIDDEN SINS.
Sins in their marriages.
Sins of competition, jealousy over who is used by me, and harsh verbal words of shame used to control and break the will of another servant in my calling.
Some have called themselves my servants but have only served their own purposes in a place of self-comfort and self-promotion, letting others do the labor in prayer.
 
 Jeremiah 7:24 says,
“But they did not listen or pay attention;
instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. 
THEY WENT BACKWARD AND NOT FORWARD.” 
 
 
DEAL WITH YOUR WEAK AND COWARDLY ATTEMPTS AT HOLINESS, THROUGH REPENTANCE AND HONESTY OF HEART BEFORE ME AND OTHERS WHOM YOU HAVE BEEN WALKING IN FELLOWSHIP WITH.
THE DAYS OF PERSONAL AMBITION AND HIERARCHY ARE NUMBERED.
 
 
MY FIRE MUST BE IN YOUR HEART!
The fear of the Divine Supernatural is to be removed from you.
Many have fallen into fear over the supernatural spirits that have surrounded them. Therefore, they have retreated in their prayer life and fallen into passivity.
 
 1 Samuel 12:24 says,
“But be sure to honor the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things He has done for you 
 
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW DAY! PLANT YOUR FEET.
The window of opportunity for change is short and sweet.
 
THIS WILL BE A TIME THAT NIGHT WATCHES ARE RE-FORMED IN YOUR REGION, AND I WILL REVISIT YOU IN THE NIGHT WATCH.
I will visit my bride as I described in the Song of Solomon and knock upon her door. This is not a time for hesitation.
Night watches will spring forth across the nations.
Once again these watches will open the door to me, and I will come again.
 
Therefore, I am calling watchmen to rise up and cry out day and night
for my bride to be positioned near the door of opportunity in these lands.
Be positioned, ready to open the door of opportunity in your nation.
 
MY BRIDE MUST NOT HESITATE TO OPEN THE DOOR
SINCE HARVEST IS WAITING TO COME THROUGH THE DOOR
INTO THE STOREHOUSE OF MY KINGDOM!
 
MY WILL HAS BEEN ACTIVATED ON EARTH.
I AM ADVANCING.
ADVANCE WITH ME.
I WILL LEAD YOU INTO WARFARE.
 
MANY HAVE GROWN FEARFUL OF CONFRONTING THE ENEMY.
I CAME TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE ENEMY.
I confronted both legalism and liberalism.
I say rise up in worship that you might confront.
Without confrontation, your enemy, the legalist, will gain much strength against you and narrow the boundaries of your freedom.
If you will align yourselves properly and allow your gift to work within my government, I will guide you like a troop into warfare and make you victorious. 
 
WORSHIP IS ARISING. FROM WORSHIP, YOU WILL WAR!
For a sound of war is coming into the heart of my people.
 
John 4:23 says, 
A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality), for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers 
 
DO NOT GO BACKWARDS. 
Take off the old garments that would hinder you.
My advance is now in the earth.
YOU HAVE BEEN BLINDED FROM THE SUPPLY OF THE FUTURE!
 
A NEW SEER ANOINTING IS ABOUT TO ARISE IN MY PEOPLE.
What you couldn't see in the past, you will now see.
You've tried to connect and align with some, but now I will release a new anointing for connecting.
You will see strategies of supply that have been hidden from you by occult powers. 
 
The seer anointing is coming back into your region.
My people's eyes are about to see their supply.
Advance is now in the earth.
Open your eyes and advance with me! 
 
YOU WILL KNOW ME AS THE GREAT PROVIDER.
YOU WILL KNOW ME AS THE GREAT HEALER.
YOU WILL SEE ME BRING FULFILLMENTS
AND ANSWERS TO MY MANY PROMISES!
 
YES! 
You will now begin to release a manifestation of My joy of release from captivity from region to region throughout the land and in all nations crying out for more of Me! 
 
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. 
There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, 
For the old order of things has passed away."  - Revelation 21:4
 
Let’s pray about this word from the Lord and share it with others!

Wednesday Dec 15, 2021


 By Mary Lindow Through The Holy Spirit
 
TODAY’S PODCAST IS GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING ONE!
What I’m sharing on this specific podcast is about a vision that I had when my husband and I were first engaged. I was staying in his parent’s home and my husband had his own house about 10 miles away. We spent a lot of time talking together and praying and just contemplating what our future would look like in the Lord, and how he was going to use us, when Steve would come over to spend time with me after work.
One evening I had gone into the living room of my in-laws to play the piano and worship and sing to the Lord, and while I was worshiping Him and enjoying being in His presence, I had what would be described as a screen being dropped out in front of my eyes take place, and I had a very visual picture to watch or as the Bible would call it, a vision.
I SAW MYSELF RUNNING ACROSS SOME SEMI-ROCKY LAND and Steve was behind me. He was trying to direct a group of individuals to stay in line and be in unity together.
All of us had what looked to be like a stretchy headband wrapped around our heads and across our foreheads. Attached on the front of these were round lights like miner’s lamps. Some of lights on the people in the line where Steve was trying to get them to come into unity and walk together would flicker and not come on brightly. Others were very bright and consistently steady.
I was running ahead like a scout and the word “forerunner” came into my mind as I was running ahead. I turned around and looked at what Steve was doing and he was trying to stop these individuals from elbowing each other and fighting over whose theology was the most correct.
 
ABOVE THE HEADS OF THESE INDIVIDUALS I NOTED THAT THERE WERE DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH ORGANIZATIONAL NAMES AND ALSO NONDENOMINATIONAL TITLES.
I turned back around and continued my scouting and forerunning and was jogging at a relaxed pace, but I knew I was heading towards something in front of me that I needed to get to.
The path had embedded rocks and bumps that I had to avoid so I wouldn’t trip. The lamp or miner’s light strapped to my forehead kept a bright light steadily beaming in front of me.
Suddenly, in front of me, was a large chasm or a gap and I had to stop and pull back so I wouldn’t fall headlong into the huge gap.
There was no possible human way to run and jump over it and I was at a dead stop staring over the edge. Intuitively, I knew I needed to get to the other side and that there was something very important for me to engage in and be a part of.
But! I didn’t see a ladder or a bridge long enough or safe enough in any direction, to try to cross over with.
 
I Heard A Voice In The Vision Tell Me To Take A Step Of Faith, and that as I walked forward, not in my own strength, not in my own might or power, but in the spirit, that I would make it safely to the other side.
I remember feeling hesitant and thinking I needed to warn Steve.
I turned around and told him I’m going to take a leap of faith to get to the other side. He looked at me and seem to understand what I was doing and turned around and tried to tell the other individuals that they were going to have to lean upon God‘s power and might and supernatural ability, to get them all to the other side. I once again turned around and backed up and took a running leap across this wide chasm. I was immediately on the other side and waited for Steve.
 
I REALIZED THAT I HAD TO DO THIS ON MY OWN WITH THE LORD, and not depend upon Steve to get me to where the Lord wanted me to be. Nor could I get him there. We were each responsible to trust in the Lord with all of our heart.
It was as if I was lifted back over the chasm for a moment so I could observe what was taking place with Steve and the others.
Several of the individuals who were irritated that others were not listening to their great rhetoric and interpretation of things, began to break loose and run forward while telling everyone how they were going to make it across the gap/chasm. Several of them literally walked off the edge of the cliff into the chasm due to not paying attention, and fell completely to the bottom.
 
OTHERS WERE FIGHTING AND SEVERAL WERE IN FEAR AND WOULD NOT ATTEMPT A LEAP OF FAITH.
They wanted to build a structure or devise a plan to get them there. Their lights were flickering very low by this point.
Steve finally said, “I have to go”, and he too, took a running leap of faith and threw his arms upward, eyes closed, trusting in the Lord’s provision to get him over the chasm. He met me standing on the other side of this wide gap.
 
IMMEDIATELY WE BECAME MEMBERS OF A LARGE ARMY.
Everyone was dressed in a white robe and had different colors of sashes to indicate which battalion or team of army members they were marching with.
Everyone’s headband with the lamp on the front of it was brilliantly white and the lamps were shining intensely! Everyone was in order and marching in unison, with thousands of members.
 
OVERHEAD THERE WAS SOMETHING LIKE ARTILLERY FIRE TAKING PLACE IN THE SKY. 
It seemed as if there were missiles and different kinds of weaponry clashing above us, but we were all marching calmly and firmly in unity and we knew we were marching under the direction of our Leader, King, Jesus Christ.
 
Shortly after this surprising vision I “came to myself” again and sat there and pondered what I had seen, for a very long time.
Steve and I have often talked about this and have often shared the details with each other again as we l pray and ask the Lord why he would show it to us at that time, and what we were being prepared for.
 
CHRISTIAN ALLEGIANCES ARE  “STRANGE AND STRAINED AFFAIRS”
Many denominations and non-denominational groups as well as progressive and New Age influenced churches have chosen to embrace a corporate world structure and more eagerly, “hunker down” into a “murky version” of the word of God.
Many have embraced the cultural pressure to push away pure living, and interpret the word of God to fit the current day embracing of immoral sexuality and freethinking on many levels.
 
THE CURRENT BLATHERING INTELLECTUALS OF THE ERA mock and criticize those who choose to live a morally and biblically pure and truthful application of God’s word.
You know, It just not "cool or hip" right now to not be a little edgy and nasty!
 
I believe that in the vision that I had, those who were elbowing and arguing and posturing while on their way to what they felt was an event (that would be in fact an important moment in the collective body of Christ), these individuals had “dimmed” their approach to allowing their minds to be renewed and cleansed by the word of God. I believe the headbands that weakly flickered with the mining lights were symbols of what they fed their minds with, weakening their discernment.
 
THOSE WHO WERE FOCUSED ON HAVING THEIR MINDS RENEWED by the word of God, being illuminated by his word and having their minds renewed had no wavering or angst taking place.
Those that were fighting and pontificating the most, had the dimming lamps that flickered and seemed to short out, and they insisted that adaptations and adjustments could be made according to the way that they interpreted faith and how to walk with Christ.
THEY REFUSED TO LISTEN TO ANYONE ELSE AND THEY REFUSED TO HAVE ANY KIND OF UNITY, BUT NEEDED TO PUSH FORWARD TO PROVE THEIR POINT.
 
When Steve kept telling them in the vision that they had to be unified and that they had to be humble and to humbly care for one another as brothers in the Lord, they became all the more enraged, condescending, and began to rush ahead in arrogance and with great irritability.
 
ONE INDIVIDUAL WAS WALKING BACKWARDS lecturing everyone and literally fell over the cliff edge into the chasm, screaming all the way down.
 
SO WHERE ARE WE?
Anyone who is doing all they know to do to have a close walk with the Lord right now at this time, who desires to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the churches and us individually, is fully aware of the deceptive clouds of wickedness and filth hovering over the world.
 
LYING HAS BECOME AN HONORED AND CUNNING ATTRIBUTE in order to confuse, control, and break other human beings.
Sadly, many in the faith have chosen to become rabid political activists to the point that it’s all that they devour and think about day and night.
They shun anyone who will not listen to them and certainly have embraced on many levels, the message of a “one world unified socialist lifestyle”. This is where a great delusion has been allowed to deceive many. Second Thessalonians 2:11 warned us about this!
“Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false.”
 
THERE IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF GODLESSNESS IN THE LAST DAYS
In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 we have quite the strong warning about how it was going to roll out and unfold. (I think that we are already there.)
“So! Understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 
For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, but treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but they deny its power. Avoid such people.”
 
WOW! AVOID THESE PEOPLE?
These are strong and difficult words to hear aren’t they?
 
When I was forerunning ahead in the vision, I believe it was a indicator of a prophetic forerunner seeing the things to come as well as seeing what God was asking of his people, as the world became more corrupt and dark, and decisions that were difficult that were coming, were about to be made.
 
THE ENTIRE TIME I WAS RUNNING I WAS WATCHING AND LOOKING TO MAKE SURE THAT MY FEET WOULD NOT TRIP, and when I came to the edge of the chasm I knew that I had to completely abandon myself, to everything that I could possibly fashion or create in my mind, leaving behind the hopeful use of any personal skills to get to the other side of where God wanted me to be.
 
THERE WAS NO POSSIBILITY TO RUN AND JUMP AND MAKE IT ON MY OWN.
I had to abandon myself to the fact that God said to take a leap of faith. That I must trust Him spirit, soul, and body, to be moved into position in His kingdom where I would be in unity marching with His great army of servants.
Somehow in my spirit, in the vision, I knew that Steve was going to be okay and also knew that we had to individually make a choice to trust God completely with our lives, no matter what difficulties we were about to face.
There was great sadness on Steve’s face when he turned around and knew he had to now leave those who were rushing ahead and jumping or still arguing on the edge of the chasm, and that it was his time to risk everything and take a step of faith out into the unknown.
The minute Steve arrived on the other side of the chasm with me we were side-by-side marching to the sound of thousands of feet in unison and voices praising God. There was a look of determination and sobriety on every face that was in every battalion of people, but everyone knew why they were there, and what they were being assigned to.
The flashes of light and military type of war going on above us was constant but no one broke rank and everyone was marching in the battalion that they were a part of. Praise and powerful prayers were coming out of all of all of the people’s mouths as they raised their hands forward in honor of what was up ahead, which I believe was King Jesus himself.
 
In Joel 2:11 it says
“The Lord utters his voice before his army,
For his camp is exceedingly great;
He who executes his word is powerful.
For the day of the Lord is great and very awesome;
Who can endure it?”
 
NOW, I WILL NOT PRESUME TO TRY TO UNPACK ALL THAT IS GOING ON IN THE EARTH TODAY, nor will I say that I understand all of the applications of the book of Revelation or End Time thoughts.
What I will say is that the Lord has told us that the difficult days would come and that antichrists and deceivers would rise up from among us, even trying to deceive the very elect, God’s own precious, set apart children.
 
1 John 4:3 tells this clearly!
Every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God.
This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.
 
You see, This is a time where God is already showing those who have ears to hear what He is saying and that we are being called to take great steps and leaps of trust and faith in Him, like we have never, EVER done before.
 
IT’S SCARY OUT THERE IN THE WORLD, and tyrants and wicked men and women defy and mock anything that interferes with their corruption and filth. They are absolutely not interested in the sound of the voice of the Lord or in his people challenging them. But this is where our faith and trust in God must exceed and excel.
 
It is a time where you and I must continually and constantly renew our minds by intentionally reading and listening to the word of God.
 
HOW MANY TIMES A DAY DO PEOPLE CHECK THE SOCIAL MEDIA UPDATES and news feeds on their phones and I Pads? Is this where the light of Christ is found and minds are renewed?
No. It’s a place where distractions and debates and the opinions of man drown out truth and any trust in God.
 
RUN AWAY FROM THE PACK
Believers! Get a firm pace going in your pursuit of the truth!
Be aware of those snares and rocks placed there to intentionally get you to change course or quit and become part of the world’s narratives!
 
There’s no need to figure out what you are going to do
in tough times if you stay close to the word and voice of God!
 
He absolutely WILL guide you, and His word IS the lamp for your feet and the light that will keep your path lit up as you journey through dark days!
 
Psalm 119:105 
"Your word is a lamp to my feet
, AND a light to my path.
 
IN CLOSING, I ENCOURAGE YOU TO ALLOW THE LORD, TO DO A DEEP PURGING AND SEARCHING OF YOUR HEART.
Don’t push away where he is trying to get you to give up your own, personal opinions about how things are to be done in a time where recklessness and chaos are rewarded.
Get quiet and be still in his presence, and ask him to tell you exactly what to do.
 
HE WILL DIRECT YOU THROUGH HIS WORD!
He will bring people across your path who are either like-minded or who will point the way to absolute sustaining truth.
Stay away from those who are so full of themselves, and who love the sound of their own voices, so that there is no room for tenderness and dialogue for a soul that is hungering after God.
 
YOU AND I ARE RIGHT NOW, A PART OF THE GREAT ARMY OF GOD.
We are to march to the sound of His voice and have our voices raised in praise of who He is and in declaration that we are of another Kingdom.
Even if it seems as if nothing is changing or that God is at a distance, we are not to walk by how we feel, or how things look around us.
We are to be determined to be in union and in communication by the spirit with the Spirit of the living God.
 
Ask the Lord to draw you close to him.
Choose to run after him!
 
Don’t wait for others to lead you or guide you to answer the questions that you have in your heart right now. Jesus by the Holy Spirit is able to speak clearly to you and he is able to give you direction, because, He IS the great I AM.
He IS wisdom.
He IS light!
And, He has promised…
…To never leave us in the dark.
 
Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
But will have the light of life.” - John 8:12

God tells you and I at this time to put HIM
between yourself and the enemies!
 
 
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?
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!

by Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
Today’s podcast is one that shares something that has given me a greater sense of being anchored in the Lord during these very strange and unusual times in the earth.
I love it when the Lord speaks to us in his word, or from other people speaking into our lives and also through dreams or visions.
Now, what I’m about to share with you is a significant dream that I had not too many nights ago. I know that the dream was from the Lord because it spoke to the things that I had been praying about and asking the Lord to give me confirmation over, as well as insights to these prayers. 
If you will research the word of God you will see how the Lord has used dreams and spoken to people through dreams and visions, and led them not only out of dangerous situations, but also spoke to them about situations that were about to take place in their lives. 
 
Numbers 12:6 speaks about this.
Listen to my words:
“When there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD,
reveal myself to them in visions,
I speak to them in dreams".
 
The dream I had was very detailed and very vivid.  I’ve had several of these in my walk with the Lord throughout the years.  
The dream began with me standing on the tarmac of an airport runway walking towards an airplane where you had to climb up a tall and narrow stairway in order to enter the plane.
As I was standing at the bottom of the stairway I turned around and looked behind me. Standing directly in front of me was an individual whom I recognized. She was holding two very large babies in her arms. They both were grossly oversized and their faces looked like adults. These babies were throwing temper tantrums and crying, and wanted lots of attention. 
The letters PhD showed up on the forehead of this person holding the babies. She was shouting at me that I did not have time to get on the plane because we had to take care of all of these babies! I knew in my spirit in the dream that these babies represented adults who still act like children and want to have intellectualism and others with educational or intellectual abilities, tend to their every need, and, they were forever wanting attention!
Behind my friend was a shoulder-high picket fence that was very worn and splintered. Behind the fence there were all kinds of people laughing and mocking and partying. Some were very enraged and were spewing out nasty words and hateful statements. This was all being directed at the people who were climbing or ascending the stairway, climbing up to a higher level to enter a jumbo jet. 
 
I began my ascent on the steps and turned around and noticed that my friend was very angry at me for not listening to her ideas about how to handle all the troubles going on with adults, acting like children today.  I knew that I had a very tight timeframe to get up the stairs and get on the plane, so I turned around, sadly knowing that I had to put a distance between myself and the things going on behind me, and keep moving upward.
 
When I reached the point of entry on the plane a police woman of sorts put her arm out and said, “You cannot enter! There are only a certain amount of people allowed on this specific flight!” I very kindly told her that my husband had already boarded the plane and that we had tickets. She looked at me and said, “Yes then you may pass. You may enter.”
As I stepped into the plane it looked like it had a  very simple, low stage/platform down in the front of the plane and the seating looked like an auditorium with spacious seating. There was a single door on the back wall of the small stage. People were milling around by their seats and quietly enjoying warm conversations in anticipation that someone important was going to be coming out and addressing them. 
I then noticed that there was a dividing wall down the middle of the plane and there were people on the other side of the wall as well that were seated. I could not see my husband Steve so I spoke out loud and shouted, “Steve Lindow?”  And, I heard his voice from around the other side of the wall saying “I’m over here!”
As I went around the corner I saw Steve in the very far back of the seating area where there were just two reclining type airplane seats, that were very comfortable.  When I went back to be with him I noticed that his leg was in a leg brace and a foot boot. ( In real life, Steve was actually fighting a disjointed bone in his foot at the time Id had this dream,  and had been wearing a foot boot around the house!)
 
Steve was smiling and had his foot propped up and looked very comfortable. As I was about to take my seat next to him, an individual in a professional pilot’s type of airline suit came up to us and told us that there were two special seats for us behind us, in an alcove. I noticed on the hat that he wore was the word STEWARD in capital letters. This individual was very kind and helpful and made sure that we were “guided” to the alcove where two very comfortable extra wide padded luxury seats were located.
As I sat down in this amazing chair, I look to the left of me and on the wall there was an affixed sign that said “Prayer Room”.
In the dream I said out loud, “Wow! I have never seen a prayer room on an airplane before!”
The steward stood there and smiled at me and nodded his head knowingly. I had a feeling that this was the Lord helping us and Stewarding us, helping  to get us settled and was ministering to us as we positioned ourselves for the flight we were just about to take. 
Just before this individual left us, he leaned over and winked at us and said, “Buckle up!” At that point in the dream we were made aware that we were going to need to have the seatbelts on in order to endure the intensity of the flight.
 
I woke up and after this dream I knew that I’d heard something from the Holy Spirit, very important for the times that we are in.
As I began to pray and search the Scriptures the Lord unpacked the dream for me. 
 
The tarmac represented the earthly road that we walk on every day. 
People travel back-and-forth in the earth and on the earth every day. As I was approaching the stairway to go up and ascend into the jumbo jet, there were distractions and conversations going on that were trying to get me to change my decision in order to follow what would look like common sense, intellectual advice, or following the narrative of angry people, or feeling humiliated by people who had mocking spirits. 
Since Steve and I have also been involved in much pastoral counseling the past five years, one thing that stood out strongly in the vision/dream was that the PhD written across the forehead of the woman, stood for trying to solve things or trying to attain helping people, through discourse of the mind or using humanism and coping mechanisms to help tame the soul. 
 
The two large babies that had the faces of adults that were throwing temper tantrums, speaks very strongly of many believers who refuse to grow up into mature adults in the Lord and refuse to become responsible for their own choices and actions, and instead throw temper tantrums and cry and scream, and blame everyone else for their immaturity or reoccurring problems. 
This is also a common narrative in the world right now that is causing great division among people groups as well as the push for verbal abuse and the ability to character assassinate.
I knew that I had to turn my back on everything that was causing me to be distracted or overwhelmed, as well as walk away from dependance on anything that clinical or educational pursuits that might be allowed to cloud my ability to ascend higher in the Lord. I knew that this stairway that I was going up to get into the jumbo jet, was very steep and it was very narrow and that I had to focus on climbing.
 
In Matthew 7:13-14 it says,
“There are two paths before you; you may take only one path. 
One doorway is narrow. And one door is wide. 
Go through the narrow door. 
For the wide door leads to a wide path, and the wide path is broad; the wide, broad path is easy, and the wide, broad, easy path has many, many people on it; but the wide, broad, easy, crowded path leads to death. Now then that narrow door leads to a narrow road that in turn leads to life. It is hard to find that road. Not many people manage it."
 
The police woman at theentry door onto the plane I believe, was an example of the protection of the Lord using a discernment factor as to who you allow to travel with you in this next phase of your walk with the Lord, as well as the kind of relationships and fellowship that will be forming in the days ahead.
 
I was allowed to pass and enter because Steve and I had already agreed that we we’re going to travel together and be in agreement as a couple, to obey and follow the path that God was leading us on, even if we knew it would be hard.
 
There was an atmosphere of anticipation among everyone that was milling around and standing by their seats before the flight took off.
Again, the platform was just a simple stage with one door in the center. It seemed as if someone was going to step out and address everyone once the flight took off, but everyone was at peace knowing that this was a very important announcement…
… but that there was a specific timing for it.
 
As I called out for Steve to locate him and he called me and I went around the wall and began to move towards where he was sitting, I was aware of a very sweet presence and atmosphere of holiness and reverence.
We were seated in the back but no one at all felt like they had any kind of priority seating or notoriety. All of the seats were very plush and comfortable for everyone, in order to make the trip bearable during its time of flight.
 
The Lord then began to speak to me about Steve’s leg boot and knee brace that he was wearing in the dream. 
He showed me that so many in the Body of Christ are in a time of being called up into a higher place with the Lord, and that during this difficult and pressure filled time in the earth right now, people have felt “hobbled” and as if they are unable to move about freely and travel and function in jobs or pursuits as they had in the past, and weren’t able to freely do things in missionary work or evangelical work during the restrictions that have been placed on them. 
The Lord very sweetly let me know that HE is stewarding this time. 
Remember the man with a hat that said “STEWARD” on it? 
 
During this time that we are all experiencing the great discomforts of being either isolated or locked down or hindered, (and most all of us are very aware that the pressure has been intense for so many and it has immobilized so many people), the Lord is sending us help and he is wanting us to steward this time wisely and use it for the purpose of coming into a bigger place, a broader expanse of the understanding of “ascending higher” into a place of relationship with him.
Ephesians 2:6 says,
“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him 
in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus”
As the steward gently guided us over to the alcove to the two extra plush extra comfortable reclining seats  that were prepared for us, (we were being SEATED With Him In Heavenly Realms) the Lord showed me that when he moves us into a different place or when he is causing us to travel into a new location or a place with him, he puts us under the shadow of his wing and protects us, and shields us while we are in that time of transition and change.
And, as I saw the sign positioned  on the wall that said  Prayer Room, and even spoke out-loud In the dream saying, “Wow! I’ve never seen a prayer room on a plane before”, it was if the Holy Spirit was saying to me, “When I move you into a new place of transition, even if you feel hobbled or you feel restrained or restricted, this is because I am drawing you into a place or a new 'plain' of prayer”. 
He wants us to understand that we are seated with Christ in heavenly places, and that, that ascended place of intercession in prayer, is a place where the strongholds and warfare are viewed from the pure wisdom of God’s view and God’s understanding.
 
Colossians 3:1 says,
---- >“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, 
---- > Set your hearts on things above,
---- > Where Christ is, 
---- > Seated at the right hand of God.”
 
Now Remember, we were on a jumbo jet with only selected people who were allowed to be on that flight, waiting for instructions from someone that was going to come through a single door on a platform. 
I believe that those on the plane represented a fresh unity and equal playing field in the Body of Christ. Everyone had a place to sit and a place to comfortably spread out, and yet there was no title or competition for position or notoriety or elite seating. Everyone was waiting to be told to take their seats and were anticipating this unique flight, and, waiting for instructions from the person who would come through the door.
 
Now! The last part of the dream was very significant. 
When Steve and I had gotten over the surprise at the extremely comfortable and roomy seats that we were given in the prayer alcove,
I was impressed to remember the steward that stood by quietly and was smiling, but was very much a professional in his uniform.  REMEMBER. He leaned over and winked at us and said “buckle up”! Now, This was said kindly and the wink was in a sense of being humorous, but when he said it, it was as if we were being told, “you need to make sure you are ready for what you are about to experience in prayer on this next journey”.
After much meditation and praying and dialoguing with Steve and a few other individuals in ministry that I respect, I feel that this dream is an indicator to the Body of Christ to leave behind the things that so easily trip us up and to also allow ourselves, to be separated from the things that  the world has to offer us, or, the things that the world is throwing at us to mock what we believe in Christ as truth. 
 
We are to no longer lean upon our own understanding, our own intellect, or our own intellectual assumptions about giftings and callings. We are to quickly climb and ascend with Christ at this time as the path narrows, and gather among those that God has assigned us to be in unity with, in prayer.
 
This is a time of the Holy Spirit drawing us into an atmosphere of reverence, and it may feel a little cloistered and compressed for a while as if being hobbled, but it is in fact a place of being called to come up higher into the things of the Spirit of God.
As we hide under the shadow of his wings and we intercede and we pray in the spirit and wait upon the Lord and steward this time, we are being prepared and kept safe, as we buckle up for some of the turbulence in the days ahead. 
 
Whoever was about to step out on the platform in the front of the plane, was someone of great significance which I believe was the Lord Himself giving Divine instructions and fresh commissioning to those who were selected to be on this flight. 
They came from all walks of life, all ethnic backgrounds and had one thing in common. 
They wanted to walk in unity and in a deeper level of the knowledge and wisdom of God.
 
Psalm 133:1 says,
“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!”
 
My friends, with the world in absolute upheaval and so many shocking events taking place so rapidly, many believers have asked themselves how could they have missed what was coming, or how could they have not seen things more clearly or sooner! 
Understand this, evil has always been just one breath away in the earth. 
It just puts on different forms and personalities and masks in order to trick people, or to deceive them into solving problems through intellectualism, through scientific projections and theories, and also through religious structures that prohibit freedom in Christ for all. 
 
Remember that Satan goes around “like” a roaring lion seeking...
...whom he “may” devour. 
 
Most people are devoured by looking to news articles and trending narratives in order to make sense of chaos or to make sense of experiences that they are having.
 
We as believers are being called to “ascend into a place of great fellowship with the Lord”. That’s going to cost us something.
It’s going to cost us our reputations at times, it’s going to cost us relationships. It’s going to cost us financially and it’s going to cost us, how much time we spend entertaining ourselves. 
 
I have seen many believers put on a new form of “self protective rigidity in their faith” actually shunning or distancing themselves from anyone who does not meet their standard of structure or approach to serving Christ. This is actually a form of secret pride in thinking personal holiness and personal reverence is allowed to be selective.
I would like to say that when you are desperate enough to serve the Lord at all costs, you don’t have a whole lot of time to pigeonhole people. If you find yourself discriminating against someone who isn’t as zealous as you are, or who tends to be a verbal processor, or perhaps even someone who is very stoic, most likely you will be hindered from being allowed to enter this new plain and place of travel with the Lord.
 
I like how the Passion translation addresses this in John 7:24.
“Stop judging based on the superficial. 
First you must embrace the standards of mercy and truth.”
 
The Lord is looking for unity, he is looking for like mindedness, he’s looking for humility and an anticipation of being able to speak and direct his people in the up-and-coming fresh move of his power in the earth among mankind. 
 
One thing I know for sure, the Lord is looking for vessels who know how to honor and respect as well as fear the Lord. Those who reverence Him, and in doing so, reverence those that God has placed in their lives to form a bond of unity with, no matter how unique and different each individual is.
The Body of Christ has always been encouraged and challenged by the Holy Spirit to come up higher to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the churches. (Revelation 3:22 ) 
So, if the Spirit of the Lord is speaking to us to come up higher and has something to tell us, then the Spirit of the Lord is also telling us, there are things that we will need to be saying and speaking after we receive instructions about them. 
These instructions can only be pure and concise after we have spent time in intercession, in the prayer room, in an alcove seated with Christ in heavenly places. 
We need to “buckle up” and prepare in prayer for the things God is about to lay out to us in instructions, but we also have to understand that there will be warfare and discouragement and accusations that will come during this time of being secluded and called to prayer. 
 
Satan does not give up ground easily... 
…and, if you will recall when Jesus was in the wilderness, he was being sent by the Spirit of the Lord to be set aside for a time of prayer and fasting, and the enemy was relentless in attempting to wear him down and break him.
 
Jesus gave us the model to an ascended life, and what means is that we must get alone with the Father.  We get into a place of secluded intercession as we ascend to meet with him in prayer. 
 
Life is not easy for those who choose to separate themselves and answer the upward calling of Christ. 
But, life is exciting and rewarding as we serve him with our eyes fixed upon the eternal long term results.
 
Philippians 3:14-15 says this, 
“Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. 
But one thing I do: 
Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 
I press on toward the goal to attain the heavenly prize… 
…of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
All of us who are mature should embrace this point of view. 
And if you think differently about some issue, God will reveal this to you as well."

Saturday Mar 20, 2021


 
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.

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.

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 DWORK!
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

This message just"might" hit close to home.  
I have been thinking a lot this week about arrogance and those finger pointing individuals who enjoy belittling others and simply love to be plain old snarky. Just look at the headlines of newspapers, Internet news and gossip columns! With the stroke of a key or two, words written imply things that can break hearts, ruin trust, hope, National Security and relationships.
THERE IS SUCH A HARSH STING TO THE HEART  
WHEN THE CRUEL WORDS OF SOMEONE ELSE INTENTIONALLY 
DOES A VERBAL SLAP DOWN OR SHAMES YOU.
Usually it occurs when THEY believe that THEY are absolutely right or have "superior" knowledge, and that others are the "lesser" and are the "wrong- big- dummies".
This mean and sour arrogance, which uses power to belittle or harm others, is something that crushes and cripples hearts and dreams. It's a secret and deep seething storm inside of the soul of those who feel they have rights and superior thinking that justifies weaponizing words. Yes... Weaponizing! 
Words can deliver pinpoint missiles of pain, threats, ridicule, humiliation, subtle undertones of condescension but can also deliver payloads of healing, warmth, gratitude, encouragement, and above all, Hope.
As a believer, our faith should not be arrogant, nor should a person of faith belittle others! We should never use our faith or intelligence to pretend that we are superior or more informed than others! NO! NEVER!
Belittling is a form of bullying! It's when someone makes you feel as though you are little, minuscule, not good enough.
Proverbs 11:17 says,"Your own soul is nourished when you are kind, but you destroy yourself when you are cruel".
Arrogance is the opposite of humility, and humility is supposed to be a Christian virtue.  Jesus Christ who, in coming into the world and living and dying alongside of us, lived out what humility is.
You will never reach the place of honor or full use by the Heavenly Father, (and can actually be disqualified from many opportunities) until your insecurities and need to needle, belittle, compete with, or shame others is addressed, repented of and buried! And, when mentioning, reaching a place of honor I'm referring to this as honor before the face and rule of God.
If your goals in life are to have men honor you first...
...You will be one who certainly tramples others with your words.
 
Those who have the sickness of pride in their hearts, speak of others weakness and sins with contempt, irritation, frustration, or judgment. Pride is crouching inside of your meanness and belittling of the struggles of others.
It's cowering in your jokes about the "craziness" of your spouse, the mocking of that "too sensitive friend". It may even be lurking in the prayers we throw upward for our friends that are "subtly or not" often tinted with the color of exasperated irritation.
Listen to Proverbs 15:4 from The Message translation.
"Kind words heal and help;
Cutting words wound and maim."
 
Sometimes, we use sarcasm to voice harsh, or cutting words we otherwise would not say, often intentionally hurting others. Once the pain is inflicted however, we retreat, saying, "Oh, I was just kidding!"  But the sting of those words hurts so much that those we have injured, withdraw.
Our words don't feel like jokes at all.
Jesus' words should be a warning to those of us who are tempted to use sarcasm as a weapon:
"But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken". -Matthew 12:36
 
SARCASTIC REMARKS USUALLY SEEM LIKE NO BIG DEAL  
TO THE PERSON WHO MAKES THEM. 
BUT TO THE RECIPIENT, THOSE WORDS MAKE LASTING IMPRESSIONS
THAT SCAR TO THE VERY CORE OF THE HEART.
 
Many times, sarcasm shames a person, causing them to feel belittled and unworthy. When shame takes root in the heart, it can cause disastrous behavior, because the person now feels worthless and seeks desperately to find anything that will make them feel otherwise.
Shaming others is a serious offense with serious consequences. 
Jesus said, "Your very words will be used as evidence against you,
and your words will declare you either innocent or guilty." 
 -Matthew 12:37
 
Are your words kind and constructive? 
Do they desire to seek peace and unity, or are they driven by your fleshy desire to sting, aggravate, retaliate, tease, belittle, control, alienate, shame and manipulate through sarcasm? YES ... alllll of those HURT PEOPLE!
The enemy is camping out at the gate of your every relationship. Children, spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, parents, co-laborers and more. He is lurking around every corner, seeking to find that one open crevice where he can enter. If he has been entering in and camping out in your home or relationships through the use of sarcasm, it's time to boot this verbal enemy out and lock the gate behind him.
Die to your need to be snarky and always the one with a chirpy sarcastic comeback! Allow Christ to show you His ways that love, peace and compassion can be the source of every word that proceeds from your mouth.
"All of you, clothe yourselves with humility towards one another,
because, 'God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.
Humble yourself then! Bow low under God's mighty hand,
that he may use you to the fullest at the proper time.
-1 Peter 5:56
 
Prayer of Brokenness and Confession
(I Highly recommend praying this out loud.) 
Holy and All seeing Father God,
I confess now to You, that I do not always love my neighbor.
I confess that I have despised others, even to the point of hatred.
I confess that I have been hurt by others.
I confess that forgiveness and reconciliation at times are just impossible for us.
I realize that I have spoken words that have broken people or have humiliated them and although asking for forgiveness, they have distanced themselves from me, and rightly so because they don't want to take any more of my unkind words.
Father I ask you to heal them from the things that I have said that caused broken and crushed spirits. 
Restore them; bring them Friends that will treat them kindly.
I know that nothing is impossible in You.
So, I come to You, seeking healing and wholeness for myself.
Heal whatever is inside of me that needs to speak poorly of others, or to speak down to others.
Show me the parts of me that are insecure or needy. 
Help me, whenever possible, to live in peace with others, to seek reconciliation and healing and forgiveness.
For Your Son Jesus came and lived among us, and was betrayed and denied, abused and put to death.
Yet, He rose again, and came with the message of peace to those who had denied Him and abandoned Him. 
Oh Father! May I walk in His ways and model His kindness in my speech and actions.
I pray this in Jesus' loving name.
Amen.

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
My heart aches and yes, even trembles a bit at the broad measure of deception that has had a huge increase in these difficult days.
Spirits that imitate the voice of our Savior are cloaking themselves as Angels of light and also come masquerading as the Voice of the Holy Spirit in order to distract and lure believers away, slowly from sound convictions, godly warnings, and above all, THE still small Voice.
The Bible tells us that deception; doctrines of demons, and false prophets will increase.     The Spirit has spoken expressly that in the latter times some would depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.
It feels as if those days are upon us and though we might try to withdraw or hide, we cannot escape them; we must overcome in the midst of them, for this is the will of God concerning us.
Strange as it may seem, the danger today is greater for the passionate Christian than for the lukewarm and the self-satisfied. 
 
“THE SEEKER AFTER GOD'S BEST THINGS IS EAGER TO HEAR ANYONE
WHO OFFERS A WAY BY WHICH HE CAN OBTAIN THEM.”
~A.W. Tozer
The type of person Mr. Tozer is speaking about, longs for some new experience, some superior view of truth, some operation of the Spirit that will raise him or her above the dead level of religious bumpiness they see all around them, and for this reason these people are ready to lean a concerned ear towards the “new and the amazing” in faith, first and foremost if it is presented by someone with an attractive personality and a reputation for “enhanced” saintliness.
HOWEVER, our Lord Jesus the great Shepherd of His sheep has not left His flock to the ruthlessness of the wolves. He has given us the Scriptures, the Holy Spirit and yes, the natural ability of common sense watching, and He expects us to apply ourselves to their help all the time.
 
"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good," said Paul. -I Thess. 5:21
"Beloved, believe not every spirit," wrote John, "but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world" -I John 4:1
"Beware of false prophets," our Lord warned, "which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." -Matt. 7:15
 
A TIME FOR DIRECTIONAL ADJUSTMENT
We are in much need of a directional adjustment as believers in the Body of Christ 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 magnetic 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
 
NOTHING THAT COMES FROM GOD WILL MINISTER TO OUR PRIDE OR SELF-CENTEREDNESS.
N O T H I N G!
If we are tempted to be conceited and to feel superior because we have had an incredible vision or a radical spiritual experience, or if we feel extraordinarily more well informed or gifted with educational pursuits and feel the need to inflict our “superior-ness” upon others, we should fall immediately to our knees and repent of the ugly and fleshly, self-serving thing! We have fallen and have been duped by the arrogant and self-deceived enemy of our souls, Lucifer.
“For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world.”
- 1 John 2:16
 
LOOKING FOR CONTINUAL SAFETY AND HELP?
When we walk in the way of surrender and tenderness with our ears tuned in towards the frequency of the ”still small voice of God”, we actually walk in a safe haven or overshadowing safety of the Presence of God. Training our spiritual ears to hear the voice of the Father creates and provides a lifetime “guarantee” of knowing when the storms or troubles will arise as well as intense persecution.
There is a promise for direction from a place of Divine Protection and direction whenever it’s needed.
”Therefore my heart is glad  and my tongue rejoices;
My body also will rest secure.” - Psalm 16:9
 
REST AND WAITING IS CRUCIAL
The man or woman with an honest heart will find no difficulty here. It is the hardest thing the mind and body to do!
Learning to rest and wait when the world is screaming at a fevered pitch, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO NOW?
It is a hard learned yet reachable discipline if we will lean into it and ask for God’s help. 
Yes, only HE can train us in this discipline of rest and waiting. Our flesh will never give into it willingly. 
Hear and then HEED the Voice of God calling you to enter into His rest. It is a place of pleasant minimalism and uncluttered guidelines. His Presence silences all of the noise of the day and noise of the Head.
ANY REAL WORK OF GOD IN OUR HEART WILL TEND
TO MAKE US UNABLE TO ENJOY WORLD'S FELLOWSHIP.
 
"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.
If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him." -I John 2:15
 
It can be declared clearly, that any spirit that allows “give and take” with the world…
...Is a deceiving spirit.
 
GOD’S PRESENCE IS A PLACE OF SAFETY FOR THE WEARY
Dear child of God! There is no judgment or shame there. It is a restful place of learning to take up an easy yoke and a light burden. 
Perhaps right now…. as you read this…you might need to get away from music in headphones or speakers, away from the ring tones on your new awesome phone with all of those cool new applications, and enter into the safe haven of God.
Lay down the weight of worry and frustration. The anger at life all bottled up in rage and gloom! All you need to take with you into the place of refuge is a willing and listening heart. Ready to trust the Divine Protector and Provider.
May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, Even as we put our hope in you. -Psalm 33:22
PLEASE SIT BACK AND LISTEN
TO THE FOLLOWING SPONTANEOUS SONG FROM THE SPIRIT OF GOD!
IT WILL SING LIFE INTO YOUR WEARY SOUL! 
 
CAPTAIN OF YOUR SOUL ©
Spontaneous Prophetic Song of The Lord
 
There is a river of life; there is a river that flows
From the city of God, There is a river of life
There is an ocean, Deep and wide and strong
And there is a pathway, in the water wide and long
 
There is a Master, Captain, at the helm of life
And there is Someone standing,
Steering the course in the fog at night
Even though the times that you can't see Me
Even though the times that you can't hear Me
I am the echo in the night
 
There is an ocean deep and wide
And there is a river flowing by your side
And even though the darkness might come
Remember the promise I've given you
I will guide you in the storms of life
 
Come with Me a while and see, that I am He
The Captain at the helm
Come and see that I have a course now set
In the heavenly realms
 
There is a river, a place for you to flow
There is a river, there is something more, For you to know
 
Let me take control, let Me drift your life away
For in the darkness of night
You can hear Me better say
 
I am the Captain of your soul
And I am the Master of the storm
Remember when you can't feel
Remember when you can't set your sail
Remember when there's no breezes
Remember there is a voice that pleases
 
There is a river, there is an ocean
There is a Captain at the helm
 
And though you might not see Me
And though you might not feel Me
I am still in the heavenly realm
I am still in the heavenly helm
 
Captain of the sea
Captain of the storm
Come and rest with Me

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.
