Prophecy - THE UNVEILING OF THE WIZARD OF OZ IN AMERICA

Prophecy - THE UNVEILING OF THE WIZARD OF OZ IN AMERICA

Falling from Cloud Nine and Waking Up to the Truth

The Lord has been showing me He’s about to pull back a curtain in the US and reveal our true condition. The deeds done in darkness are going to be uncovered, and they will shake us to the very core.

It is going to be so disturbing as a nation that we are going to go through an identity crisis.

God has shown me not only are people I have suspected of wrongdoing going to be uncovered, but there are also people I have held in high esteem are going to come crashing to the ground. People I held up as inspirational and thought they were excellent examples of righteous leadership are going to be uncovered as frauds. I keep hearing the phrase “falling from cloud nine.”

This “unveiling” will be painful. It will include people in every arena of life. People in government, the church, the media, Hollywood, business, and education. The veil is going to come down all at once. And God has told me to brace myself because I do not even understand the depth of witchcraft, counterfeit, and manipulation that has been going on behind the scenes.

What should our reaction be when we find out the Wizard of Oz is just an old man with a booming mic and great special effects? What should be our reaction when someone we admired comes falling from grace? What should our reaction be when someone we loathe comes under judgment?

First, we should each humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God who knows every hidden thing. We each have our own secret sin, and we should be careful to not act like self-righteous Pharisees.

Hebrews 4:13 - Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Second, no matter what is uncovered, justice must be served. God is no respecter of persons. Justice is part of love. If someone commits a crime, they have to do the time, even if they have been my “hero.” If someone brings harm, God will repay them. God loves justice, because it is part of His character. We must return to the fear of the Lord.

Isaiah 61:8 For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing.

Third, we should never rejoice when we see an enemy fall. We can rejoice when evil is removed. But we should not gloat when PEOPLE are humbled. We should pray for their salvation and the opening of their eyes to God’s mercy.

Psalm 24:17-18 Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice, or the Lord will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from them.

Finally, if we find our world is turned upside down by the unveiling of wickedness, if we can’t seem to find our footing when trouble comes…then we are probably guilty of idolatry. We have put people on pedestals and served them as “saviors.” The person behind the curtain with a microphone and fancy special effects is a mere human and just as fallible as anyone else. If our hope has been in a person instead of Jesus, our feet have been planted on the sand.

In the coming days, if we fall from cloud nine because of the dethroning of the Wizards, let us find ourselves landing on the Rock! God is the One doing the uncovering – He’ll be the One to put us back together!

Proverbs 28:14 Blessed is the one who always trembles before God, but whoever hardens their heart falls into trouble.

Hollywood’s Dark Night of the Soul

Hollywood has been on my heart for years.  Somehow there is a part of my soul that identifies with the industry.

I love good storytelling.

I love honest stories, funny stories, poignant stories, and convicting stories.  I love television and movies.  I love the actors who bring these stories to life.  From Debbie Reynolds and Bing Crosby to Sandra Bullock and Chris Pratt,  these people feel a part of my life – because they have made the stories of Hollywood come alive.

The power that resides on the mountain of Hollywood is unmatched.

The power that these storytellers have can turn a nation.  When Shirley Temple was on the big screen, it helped to heal our nation from World War 2.

Movies like Star Wars and Star Trek expanded our thinking about the future and in some ways gave us a vision to accomplish. We are literally seeing the Star Trek tricorder becoming a reality in the mobile phones we currently use.

Jim Caviezel and Mel Gibson caused us to leave the theater in somber silence as they told the story of the brutal death of Jesus.

Yet other stories have caused us to take a downward moral turn.  Sex, lawlessness, and violence have clouded our minds with “the dark side.”  But this truth remains – Hollywood can turn a nation.  They can turn it to the light – or the dark.

The power of telling stories to move people in their thinking is a God idea.  Jesus did it all the time through the parables He told.  Jesus created little stories throughout His ministry in order to move the people toward His Kingdom.

While we, as Believers in Jesus, have a legal right to “own” the Storytelling Mountain – we have yet to truly inhabit it.

In fact, we are so offended by Hollywood, and it’s filth, we have abandoned the Storytelling Mountain altogether.

Who owns the Storytelling Mountain?

People like Harvey Weinstein.

The man who was just revealed to have demanded that women sleep with him in order to have a job in Hollywood.  The man who used his position on the mountain to rape and pillage others, thinking he would never get caught.  Meryl Streep publicly called him god not so long ago.

Indeed he was a god.  A small one.  But an idol nonetheless.

All of Hollywood scrambled to distance themselves from Mr. Weinstein.  Women came forward to tell their stories of his lewd and inappropriate actions.  Hollywood turned against Mr. Weinstein so fast that he was even expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture.  His wife has left him, and he was ousted from his own company.

Our Storytelling God caused the clock to strike midnight and justice was served.  Within two weeks, this false idol lost everything he had.  He fell from the top of the mountain all the way to the bottom.

This is the perfect example of gaining the whole world, yet losing your soul.  Outside of God’s mercy, we reap what we sow.  God’s sole desire is to save Harvey Weinstein’s soul.

God desires to save Hollywood’s soul as well.

The Storyteller Mountain is turning our nation (and the world) in the direction of darkness instead of light.  Hollywood was bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus.  It’s been promised to us – but the reaction of Body of Christ to Hollywood has been like the ten spies who came back from scouting the promised land and said, “The giants are too big!”

Well, my friends, the giants are not too big.  One of them just fell, by the hand of the True God.

This is a sign that we must stop standing on this side of the Jordan River, we must begin to pursue the land that has been promised to us by Jesus.

We must realize the power that we have because of His blood and begin to fight in the spirit to see ALL of the giants fall.  We must intercede that Hollywood turns to the Divine Storyteller.  We need to take this stronghold!  Jesus needs it for the final outpouring.

Jesus needs for us to take the Storytelling Mountain for His Kingdom!

The fall of Harvey Weinstein should fill us with faith that God is with us, and it is time to use our spiritual swords to attack.

Not only do we need to pray for the evil giants to come down.  We need to pray that people on this mountain will turn to the Lord and that righteousness will supplant the darkness.

I decree and declare that Hollywood MUST become Holy!

As we cooperate with the plans and purposes of God, we will see Hollywood go through a Dark Night of the Soul.  But this is for God’s glory.  The cleansing of Hollywood is exactly what our nation needs. 

Hollywood needs to fear God!

Psalm 64

7 But God will shoot them with his arrows;

    they will suddenly be struck down.

8 He will turn their own tongues against them

    and bring them to ruin;

    all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.

9 All people will fear;

    they will proclaim the works of God

    and ponder what he has done.

10 The righteous will rejoice in the Lord

    and take refuge in him;

    all the upright in heart will glory in him!

Let us join the Lord in His word through our intercession.

Father God, we pray for the evil giants in Hollywood to come down.  We pray for those who have set themselves up as gods on this mountain, that they would either repent or be removed.

We pray for actors, producers, directors, writers, designers, set crews, and so on.  We pray for the living God to reveal Himself to them.  We pray for righteousness to invade Hollywood.

We pray for God’s people who are already climbing the Storytelling Mountain – grant them wisdom and favor.  Grant them acceleration and all the capital they need to establish this Mountain for the glory of the Kingdom.

We decree and declare that the earth belongs to Jesus and we claim Hollywood for the Lord that His story might be told to the whole world!

In His Name, AMEN

Please consider adding five people from Hollywood to your prayer list.  Pray for writers, set designers, and crew people as well.  This stronghold MUST be overtaken for the sake of the Kingdom.

PROPHETIC WARNING: The Great Uncovering

"...Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.

But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God."  John 3:19-21

God loves us.  Therefore, He is going to discipline us.

God gave me this prophetic warning for the Body of Christ on October 11, 2017

For the Lord would say:

"Everything that is being done in the dark will be brought into the light. I Am pulling back the curtain to expose Angels of Light and their followers. There will be a choice for many to make when the curtains are pulled back. They will be given a choice to repent and stand for truth. Or they will choose to remain in darkness and apart from Me.

A big test is coming. 

When I reveal Myself, will My people stand with Me? Or will they stand with My enemy? The hearts of men are about to be revealed. Many will be surprised at how difficult it is to choose Me.

To those who repent and come to Me to be cleansed, I will have mercy on. To those who refuse to give up their false kingdoms, even when they are plainly exposed with My light, I will remove My hand. Plagues shall be released upon them until they either repent or completely fall away.

I am judging Lukewarmness. 

I am using My truth to reveal the hearts of men, especially My Church.

Follow Me or don’t.

There is no more middle ground."

The Only Way Forward In America Is Through Forgiveness

When we forgive others, God forgives us.

Though I did not personally commit these sins – I can ask for forgiveness for my forefathers to the people groups who they did hurt. In return, I can promise you that if you will forgive our sins against you – God will also forgive your sins and He will heal our land!

To the American Indian – I ask forgiveness on behalf of my fathers who slaughtered your people because of their blindness and their wicked greed. I pray that God will bring supernatural justice and bless your people with extraordinary favor and life. I honor you as the first nation of this land. Will you receive the blessing that comes from forgiving your (former) enemies?

To the African American – I ask your forgiveness on behalf of my fathers who enslaved you, beat you, and murdered you. I ask you to remember my fathers who gave their lives on the battlefield in the civil war to set you free. I ask you to forgive us for still not having a fair justice system or education system for your tribe. I cry out to God that He would raise up a deliverer to finish the job of MLKJr. I see you. I have not closed my eyes to the work that still needs to be done until we are equals! Will you receive the blessing that comes from forgiving your (former) enemies?

To the other nations who have been oppressed in America – the Irish, the Japanese, the Chinese, the Jews, Hispanics, and more – you helped to build our nation, and we rejected you and devalued your contributions. I am so sorry that my fathers did not see you as equal. I want you to know that you are equal in every way, we have the same Creator. I honor each of your heritages for laying the foundation in the United States of America. I ask for God to restore any inheritance both natural and spiritual that was stolen from you by my fathers. May His hand of mercy bring you justice. Will you receive the blessing that comes from forgiving your (former) enemies?

To the women who helped to build a nation but never received credit, to the women who remain under the glass ceiling… I am sorry that my fathers saw you as second-class citizens. They were wrong to not give you representation from the start. They were wrong to see you as property. They were wrong to put a lid on your rights. I know there are still strides to make until we see equality in every area – but I cry out for you to receive accelerated justice from God! I cry out for equality for God’s daughters! Will you receive the blessing that comes from forgiving your enemies?

To the righteous men who are innocent and yet have been blamed for our society’s problems – I am deeply sorry. It was not your fault. We know that it is the enemy of this nation – the devil who is dividing us and tempting us to accuse each other falsely. If you are angry at being falsely accused of being a racist, a bigot, a misogynist, and so on – I want you to know that it is the Father who sees your heart and knows your motives. Please don’t let the devil harden your heart. I ask God to defend the righteous men in our nation. We want to be unified with you – don’t pull away. Will you receive the blessing that comes from forgiving your accusers?

To the Baby Boomers, I’m sorry we have devalued your opinion and not listened to your wisdom. Please forgive us?

To Generation X, I’m sorry that abortion took 31% of your generation, and then we abandoned the rest of you. Please forgive us?

To the Millennials, I’m sorry we have stereotyped you and made fun of you. Please forgive us?

To Generation Z, I’m incredibly sorry for the example we are being to you right now. Please forgive us?

I know that our nation cannot be fixed with a social media post – but it CAN be fixed with forgiveness. Will you consider doing your part to ask forgiveness from others and offer forgiveness to those who have hurt you?

God is a God of justice. But He gives us justice according to His kingdom, not ours.

Remember how much He has forgiven your debts – then please hear my request to forgive the debts of my forefathers.

There is hope. American can be saved. Let the dead be raised through forgiveness.

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. Matt 6:14

Belle is being released to set the Beast free! (A WORD FOR WOMEN OF GOD)

God is calling the women of His Kingdom to rise up.  He is calling His daughters to go on an adventure with Him.  He is making a way for His Beauties to RISE.

But this “rising” is not a worldly revolution – it’s a reformation.

God has been speaking to me through the movie “Beauty and the Beast” lately.  The heroine of the movie is tired of her “provincial” (unsophisticated, narrow-minded) life.  She longs for MORE!  She longs to break free of the town that thinks she is “odd.”  They have decided that she is indeed beautiful – but she is just too strange for them to accept.  She is a misfit.

However, the longing of her heart is fulfilled when she is taken on the adventure of a lifetime.  She ends up becoming a captive of the Beast.  She is a prisoner in his cursed castle that is in a perpetual winter season.  But she “rises” up through her strength and patience and grace and she LOVES the Beast until the curse is broken and he becomes the royalty he was meant to be all along.

God is calling the women who are tired with the mundaneness of the provincial life.  He has put a seed of Holy Dissatisfaction within His daughters who have been calling out for adventure.

For the Lord would say:

“Daughters, I have need of you in this hour.  I need for you to rise up and love the Beast.  Many of my sons have taken hard hits because the enemy of their souls has tried to take them out.  Some of them are prideful because of deep wounds.  Some of them roar because they are broken inside.  Some of them are suffering from neglect and don’t know how to be tender or gentle because they were never taught.

I am asking you to look beyond the mask of My sons.  Look beyond the outward appearance and look to the hearts of My sons.  They are longing to be loved.  They are longing to have communion with people, but the curse that is over them prevents it.

Will you allow yourself to follow Me on this adventure?  You don’t have to be a doormat.  You don’t have to be their slave.  Do not let them be your “Master.”  Let Me be your King... and simply follow Me!

I need my Beauties to be strong and patient at the same time.  I will show you when to stand up to the Beast.  I will show you when to nurture him.  If you follow Me and die to being offended, together, we can break the curse!

The adventure will be daunting at first, but I have equipped you with the Holy Spirit, and you have everything you need to release life over the castle.  Put on the whole armor of God.  Stay close to Me.  I want to restore the authority that Adam and Eve had in the Garden of Eden.

Are you willing to enter the fire, in order to set the Beast free?  When men and women come together as ONE – My Kingdom will be unstoppable!

Let’s go on an adventure and bring reformation to My Kingdom!”

Prophetic Warning – A Volcano is Coming

“I see the Lord at the edge of a freshly asphalted highway.  It drops off suddenly and a volcano has sprung up in the middle of the road.  You can’t go around it.  You can’t go over it.  It hasn’t blown yet, but it is rumbling.”

Haggai 1 has been on my mind a lot lately.  It is apparent to me that the Holy Spirit is saying something to His Church through it today.

The prophet Haggai brings a word of rebuke to the Israelites who had been brought back to Jerusalem after seventy years of captivity.  They had begun to repair the temple twenty years earlier.  But reconstruction of the temple had ceased, and everyone went to work building their own houses instead.

Haggai comes to the High Priest and the Governor and admonishes them for focusing on their own houses while God’s house “remains a ruin.”  They got stuck thinking that this world was all about their happiness and well-being.  They stopped restoring Jerusalem when their own peace was fullfilled and forgot that they served a God who wanted to establish His Kingdom on earth.

The Israelites weren’t focused on restoring the Holy of Holies by building a place for His presence to dwell –they had their own personal holy of holies…they had achieved (false) peace in their own lives.

For the Lord says:

This is exactly where most of my Church is even today.  They think that this life is about their peace and their happiness.  They have allowed the counterfeit peace to stop them from working on My Kingdom.

Am I not coming soon?  Do I not expect the Bride to be preparing herself?

Instead, the enemy has held My Church captive by assuming that the goal of this life was about their Dream House – they have forgotten the price I told them they would have to pay to be my disciples.

They are blinded by an angel of light.  They are blinded by their own ambitions.  They are worshiping at a counterfeit holy of holies.

If you are going to be my disciples – you must pick up your cross and follow Me.  You must be more focused on My Kingdom than you are on your own.

My House is a ruin, while the Church is playing pattycake.

The devil is devouring lives while the Church is arguing about worship styles.

 Not many are prepared for what is coming!”

I see the Lord at the edge of a freshly asphalted highway.  It drops off suddenly and a volcano has sprung up in the middle of the road.  You can’t go around it.  You can’t go over it.  It hasn’t blown yet, but it is rumbling.

I hear Him saying,

“My people aren’t prepared.  They’ve been busy building their own houses – but not buildling Mine.  If they would have followed Me and prepared themselves like I told them to they would be a supernatural net that would catch many fish in the turmoil…but My Church is unprepared.  So people will perish and fear will grip many, including many in My Church.

I have given them time to repent and seek Me, but they have been mesmerized by their own lives.

They are unaware of just how unprepared they are.

But I will not hold back the volcano any longer.  Ready or not --  here it comes.  For those who have prepared themselves and My House, they will bring in a large harvest.  For those who have not heeded the call to get ready, they will gnash their teeth because of their folly.

It’s unavoidable.

But I will use it to wake people out of their slumber.  I will use it as an ‘in your face’ trumpet call. It’s severe mercy to your nation.

It’s time to stop working on your own houses and begin to work on Mine!” says the Lord.

(I do not know whether the volcano I saw in my vision is literal or figurative – but it doesn’t matter.  A volcano is about to explode in our nation – and the Church is largely unprepared for either one.)

Prayer of Repentance:

God please forgive us for not working on Your house and focusing on our own.  Please have mercy on Your Church.  We pray for a spirit of repentance to sweep over us.  We ask for supernatural deliverance.  Grant us humility that we might hit our knees in a way that changes our lives forever!  May Your Kingdom come and Your will be done – we surrender our lives into Your hands.  We ask for a great harvest in the midst of the turmoil.  In Jesus Name, AMEN

Prophecy: Asking God for the Nation of Hollywood

“If you’re going to be a prophet to a culture, you’ve got to at least be in the room!”  - Bishop Harry Jackson

I heard an enlightening TV interview of Bishop Harry Jackson this past week regarding President Trump. Bishop Jackson is on the President’s religious advisory council. Anderson Cooper questioned him for why he was still there (inferring President Trump’s support for white supremacists).  Just like Daniel in Daniel 2:14 - Bishop Jackson responded with great wisdom and tact.  He said to Mr. Cooper, “If you’re going to be a prophet to a culture, you’ve got to at least be in the room!”

 It was such a brilliant response from Bishop Jackson because what Mr. Cooper really wanted him to do was to abandon Donald Trump.

(Watch the clip by clicking HERE.)

But hating Donald Trump (or Barack Obama) gets us nowhere. Helping leaders of a nation by being present in the room and advising him with godly counsel or is the wise step to take.  Hate and offense do nothing to help shape this nation.

As Believers, we should be the first to understand that it is love and patience and kindness that help us speak to the culture. It is by being deeply patient and not being offended that we react to the culture like Christ did. The Church cannot help to influence our country if we are so offended that we abandon our Commander-in-Chief (no matter what side of the aisle they are from).

The same is true of Hollywood. The church is so offended at some of the evil and filth coming out of Hollywood that we have abandoned the Arts and Entertainment part of our culture. There are very few prophets in Hollywood. (Kudos to the Hollywood Prophets who remain strong!) The church has abandoned Hollywood and has left it to the wolves.

Presently, there are no redeemers, there are no restorers, and no deliverers on the Hollywood mountain.  If anyone does try to speak to the culture with kindness and hope, the religious spirit in the Church rises up to condemn and tear down because we can’t see past our offense at their sin.

When Mel Gibson fell in his sin, after giving the Church the movie The Passion of the Christ, the Church abandoned him.  We were offended by his drunkenness and anti-semitic statements.  What we should have done is reached out to him and helped restore him – not walk away in disgust.  Mel Gibson broke open the way for God’s Kingdom in Hollywood – we should be begging God to restore this prophet to the Arts and Entertainment mountain!

We have been so afraid of messy sin that we walked the other way. This is not what Jesus did at all!  He ran towards the hurting and the sinful. It was the proud that he resisted the self-righteous Pharisees that he rebuked. The Church has treated Hollywood as though they are lepers when what they actually are …is hurting and broken sinners.

There are so many people in Hollywood, actors, directors, camera people, stuntman, crew workers, who are precious to the Lord. They are called to an important part of our culture.  But the Church is afraid of the messiness of their sin, that they refuse to send “missionaries” to them.

We must admit that our culture is just as much affected by what happens in Hollywood as it is with what happens in Washington DC. I believe that Jesus is preparing the missionaries to take this mountain to begin to prophesy to the culture. Just like Bishop Jackson said you can't influence the culture without being in the room.  We cannot influence Hollywood if we don't have people on the mountain.

It is time to stop hating Hollywood! We must begin to pray for this part of our culture to turn to the Lord with all of their hearts.  They are not beyond redemption. They are not beyond the hand of the Lord. His blood was spilled for them as well.

God is the Great Storyteller, and he wants to use Hollywood in these last days to bring in a great harvest!

This is a prophetic word that God gave me regarding Hollywood recently.  Open your hearts to what God wants to do.  Let the Holy Spirit convict you if you are guilty of condemnation.  Hollywood was God’s idea!

In Psalm 2:8 the Lord instructs us to ask for the nations for our inheritance.  I am asking God for the "nation" of Hollywood for my inheritance!  Are you willing to boldly believe that Hollywood could become Holy?

A PROPHETIC WORD FOR HOLLYWOOD – GOD’S FIERCE LOVE IS COMING TO SET YOU FREE!

For the Lord would say, “Hollywood, how often I have longed to gather you in my arms! As a Good Father, I long to hold you and comfort you in your pain. I long to set you free from the prison matrixes that the enemy has kept you captive in.”

“I loved telling stories to the people when I walked the earth. I loved capturing their hearts and minds as I told them stories to help them in their journey. Hollywood, you are in My heart,” says the Lord. “I planned you from the beginning. You will tell My story. You will glorify Me in these last days. You will ultimately be a scepter in My hand, and I will use you to beat back your enemy and the enemy of My kingdom. I Am fashioning you as a scepter in My hand.”

“But now, you need My comfort. You have been beaten and accused, oppressed and taken advantage of by those who have lusted for power and greed. Many, many young people in Hollywood have been at the mercy of those who control the puppet strings. But I have not forgotten you!” says the Lord. “I will bring you justice. I will dethrone the Pharaohs of Hollywood. I call out to the broken in Hollywood. I call out to the weary. I call out to those who have been traumatized by the Hollywood Pharaohs. Come unto Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart. I desire mercy, not judgment. Let me heal your hearts,” declares the Lord. “Let me heal your souls and deliver you from the torment of your pain.”

“You have been experiencing the pain of being neglected by your earthly ‘fathers.’ But I have not left you orphaned. I Am here!” says the Almighty. “My arms are open to you Hollywood. I'm going to give you justice. Hollywood is MINE!" says the Lord. "For I Am the Great Storyteller. The greatest part of the story is just ahead. I intend to use Hollywood to bring in a great harvest. But first, let me heal your hearts! Let My comfort bring up the valleys in your souls and then I will bring down the mountains! Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow I will do amazing things among you!” says the Lord.

Prophecy: "Misfits" are rising up in the Kingdom of God!

A WORD FROM THE LORD ABOUT "MISFITS" IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD:

I am calling all "misfits" to My throne, for now is the day of the "misfits."

Those of you who have been discarded by society because you didn't fit into their paradigm.  Those of you who think a little outside of the box and have been shunned as weird or odd.  Those of you who can never seem to fit inside the cookie cutter that the Pharisees have demanded you conform to, I am calling you to Myself.

I never demanded that anyone fit inside a preformed mold.  I created each and every soul differently... and I like it that way!

You are not misfits-you are Mine!!

There is a place for you inside My heart.  Right in the center! There is a plan that I have for those that the world deems misfits.  My plan is to take you and turn the world upside down. My plan is to use My misfits and set My people on fire! My plan is to use those the world and the church have discarded for My glory!

If you have been labeled a misfit - rejoice for that is exactly what I was!  I did not fit in.  I did not conform. I didn't care what anyone thought of me, I only cared what My Heavenly Father thought!

Do you remember that I used a host of "misfits" to plant My Kingdom?

Remember the parable of Rudolph and the Misfit Toys?  They all ended up saving the day.

There is going to be a day when those who have discarded you will have great need of you.  Keep your heart right with Me. Forgive those who rejected you and refused you... they did the same with Me.

Keep your eyes and your mind focused on Me!  The best is yet to come!

I Am Your Creator and I made you perfectly!

Come and listen to My thoughts about who you are.  Get yourself ready!

Dwell in the perfect love of My heart. This is where you belong!!!

A Word for Those Struggling with Self-Doubt

Six or seven months ago I had hit a rough patch where self-doubt kept weaving its way into my mind.  The feeling of being vulnerable and exposed would paralyze me.  I was moving more slowly than normal.  I kept doubting that I was really hearing God and I was doubting my authority over the enemy.

It wasn’t a constant barrage of self-doubt.  Just a few times a week, I would second guess the steps I took.  In the Lord’s graciousness, He brought me some discipline as to why I kept falling into self-doubt.

I share with you the word He gave to me in the hopes that it will help some of you who have had the same struggles I have had.

Beloved, Self-doubt is your biggest enemy.

You cannot doubt yourself if your faith is in Me.

Because it won't rely on you.

I will never fail you.  Can you ever think of a time when you needed words that I did not give them to you?

Self-doubt means you are focused inward not upward.

Self-doubt means you are worried about what others think.

The root of self-doubt is the approval of men.

You doubt that you are hearing Me, but I have given you protocols to test My voice.  Don’t be foolish and not test the Spirits.  But also don’t be overly full of doubt and miss My voice either.

My protocols are never turned off.  You can always test the spirits.  You can always ask for wisdom. You always have authority over the spiritual atmosphere. 

The demonic must always submit and move out of the way if you tell them to do so. But if you don’t believe your words – there is no faith behind them.  The enemy does not have to obey you,  if you do not believe your own words.  If you doubt your authority – you are like a wave on the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  You won’t receive anything because it is not coming from faith.

If there is fogginess, take authority over the fogginess.

If there is doubt, take authority over the doubt and take captive your thoughts and submit them to Me.

If you can’t hear Me, take authority over a “famine of hearing the words of the Lord.”  Command the heavens and the skies to open up for you.

Your authority has been bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus.

When you doubt that you are taking the right step – remember that I can easily correct your path, if you are seeking My Kingdom first.  I will never let you fall if you are seeking after Me with a pure heart.

No one walks through life perfectly.  But if you remember My goodness and the depth of My love for you, you will not walk in the fear of man – and you will walk in faith of who I AM.

Do not walk in the self- doubt of your inadequacies.  Walk in the faith that I hold the whole world in My hands and I have your best interests at heart.

I never let the righteous fall.

Psalm 55:22  (NLT)

22 Give your burdens to the Lord,

    and he will take care of you.

    He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.

Steps to Wholeness:

Father God, please forgive my unbelief and my self-doubt.  Forgive me for caring too much about what men think of me.  I trust You.  I trust You to correct me.  I trust You to carry my burdens.  Help me to remember to test the spirits but not to fear mis-hearing Your voice.   I want to know You.  I want to walk with You.  I lay down my self-doubt and I hand You my burdens.  I want Your will and Your ways – I believe that You will not permit the godly to slip and fall.  Thank You, Lord, for Your graciousness.  In the mighty name of Jesus, AMEN!

Prophecy: The Power of Kingdom Marriages Is About to Explode

For the Lord would say:

“Marriages have been under tremendous stress for several years.  The enemy knows that if He can break up the foundation of My Kingdom then He can create havoc with the lack of unity.  My earthly Kingdom was built on the marriage of Adam and Eve.  They were my first Power Couple. 

Before the fall, Adam and Eve were unified as one.  They experienced the power that comes with the two becoming ONE!  In their unity, I was able to dwell with them on the earth.  I used them to rule over the earth.  They were knit together as One person.  They both had authority and their word was the law on earth before the fall.

The enemy was able to destabilize the first marriage when Adam and Eve sinned.  Since then, overthrowing marriages has been a main focus of the Destroyer.  He has prowled around looking for whom he may devour.

Some of My people have suffered greatly in Satan’s attempt to undermine marriages.  Some marriages have died through divorce.  Some marriages are in paralysis because of offense and a lack of love.  Other marriages have been kept from advancing forward because of childhood trauma.  

Don’t underestimate the lengths that the Destroyer will go to in order to ruin the institution of Marriage.  He is taking a swipe at Me,” says the Lord.

“But don’t underestimate My grace either!  For even though I have remained silent for a period of time, I AM about to ROAR at the enemy concerning the restoration of Kingdom Marriages.  I have seen your suffering.  I have heard your prayers.  I have held you as you cried.  I have been with you every step of the way.  I will not let this suffering continue, for I am about to pour out my grace with such a liberality that it will stun not only the people on earth, it will stun all of hell.

The enemy thinks he is winning on the issue of marriage, but he has played right into My hands,” says the Lord.

“Marriages that seem too far gone and utterly irreparable will be restored in record time.  I can take a broken and wayward marriage and put it back together in one week’s time.  I going to show off and put some of the marriages that have been under years of great stress and put them back together in a day.

The enemy has gone too far.  I always remain silent and let him think he’s won – just before I rip out the rug from underneath him.

Marriages that are in a rut will suddenly find themselves with momentum.  Old feelings will be stirred and new life will spring up in the middle of dried up relationships that have been suffering from famine.  My grace will pour out on these stagnant marriages and they will find that seeds planted long ago will suddenly spring to life and adventure and excitement will replace the stagnation.

Others who have suffered the pain of unjust divorce will swiftly find their new Adam or Eve and I will bless their unions in a way they never thought possible.  I will give them beauty for ashes.  I will give them unity in place of their rejection.

Still, others who have been waiting for My hand to move in their lives and trusted Me to bring them a spouse have honored Me in such a noble way that when I bring them the spouse I have planned, I am going to grant a grace that leads to unity that has not been seen since before the fall.

I AM restoring the Power Couple marriage to this earth!  The enemy will be sorry that he tried to touch the institution of Marriage.  I am going to do something in these last days that will make up for the past thousands of years of broken marriages.  You are blessed to be able to witness the end time Power Couple marriages. You are blessed to be part of them.

I have need of Power Couples!  I have need of UNITY in the home!  I Am repairing and restoring the institution of Marriage.  My Power Couples will decree things into the earth and they will see it happen before their eyes.  They will pray and I will move mountains.  They will honor me with their Song of Solomon passion and the enemy will not be able to touch them.  My Power Couples will lead churches and businesses.  They will rule in government.  They will create new entertainment that will disciple the world through their stories.  Nothing shall be impossible for My Power Couples – they will bring heaven to earth.

Rejoice, My people!  I have saved the best for last!

Satan has gone too far and now he will suffer again like the day when I retrieved the keys to the gates of hell and death.

I AM RETRIEVING THE KEYS TO KINGDOM MARRIAGES FROM HELL!!

It is ALL in preparation for the coming Wedding!   The Wedding that will mark the end of the age.  The world as you know it will end with a Power Couple – the marriage of the Lamb and the Bride.

Receive these words and worship Me!  Praise Me!  I Am doing something new!  Trust in Me and begin decreeing over your own marriage as well as other people in your life that you have a Kingdom Marriage and that you are a Power Couple!”

Prophecy: I heard the Lord say, "Ready or not, here I come!"

I’ve been crying out for MERCY for the past two months during our morning worship service at my church.  I knelt down at the altar and prayed for God to have MERCY on His people.

I would sometimes have a vision while I was praying.  Sometimes I would have a dream the following morning.  But yesterday as I prayed something happened that was much more significant.

As I prayed, I began to have a sharper than normal supernatural vision.  I saw a double door open in front of me.  Angels came pouring out of the door.  I saw them go into the congregation and open the eyes of those who had them closed.  The angels just kept pouring out of the door and I cried out for them to go and have MERCY on the people and open the eyes of their hearts.

There were so many angels that I knew there were more angels present than there were people.  I asked the Lord about this, “Why are there more angels than people coming through the door.” 

I began to see some of the angels leave the sanctuary out through the front door.  The Holy Spirit replied to me, “Because I’m going to let my MERCY spill over onto your community too.”

I then saw an angel with what looked like a small little bird bath.  It had water it in.  The angel dipped his finger in the water and then made a cross on my forehead with it.  I instinctively knew that this angel was going to go throughout the congregation and similar to Ezekiel 9:4 he was going to “mark” the heads of the people who grieved and lamented over the detestable things that were happening in his kingdom and desired to see them changed.

I worshiped the Lord a little longer and then I heard these words.

“Ready or not, here I come!”

I knew that this was both wonderful and terrible at the same time.  Some of us are ready.  And some of us are not.   Some of us have prepared ourselves to receive the promises of God, while others are fast asleep or mesmerized by the cares of this world.

God is about to come and reveal His presence in a greater way.  He wants to bring revival to our nation.  So He’s about to show His glory.  And when He does – some people are going to rejoice because they have prepared themselves and circumcised their hearts.  When the glory of God is revealed, they will be found to be pure and they will step into sync with the Lord and all that He is about to do.

But others have not listened to the Lord calling them to repent.  These are the people who are not ready to face His glory.

You see when the glory of God, His presence is revealed, nothing that is impure can stand. 

1 “I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the LORD Almighty. 2

But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap.

3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the LORD will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, 4 and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the LORD, as in days gone by, as in former years. 5 “So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says the LORD Almighty. Malachi 3:1-5

The glory of God is both wonderful and terrible.  For those who have prepared themselves it is wonderful.  For those who have not, they will fall on their knees in weeping and gnashing of teeth.

We must wake up and strengthen ourselves.  We must ask the Lord if there is anything that needs to be circumcised from our hearts.  We must ask Him to open our eyes NOW – not wait until He comes.

He has given us MERCY.  But how will you spend your MERCY?

Will you spend it to shake yourself to be fully awake?  Will you spend your MERCY on cleansing yourself from all unrighteousness?  Or will you waste it and stick your head back in the sand?

Ask the Lord to make you ready for His presence.  Ask the Lord to show you where any changes in your thinking or your heart need to take place.

Revival is coming.  The glory of God is coming.  Are you ready… or not?

A Prophetic Word About the Next Generations

This morning I woke up with a song in my heart. It was the song by Rascal Flatts called “Bless the Broken Road.” It’s a love song, and we normally hear it at weddings. Especially at weddings in which people have had difficult paths to reach the point of getting married.

The song centers around the idea that every heartbreak that the lover suffered actually ended up being a northern star that pointed them straight to the one they are meant to be with.

Here are some of the lyrics:

I set out on a narrow way many years ago

Hoping I would find true love along the broken road

But I got lost a time or two

Wiped my brow and kept pushing through

I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you

That every long lost dream lead me to where you are

Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars

Pointing me on my way into your loving arms

This much I know is true

That God blessed the broken road

That led me straight to you *

My heart has been aching for the generations of youth who are walking broken roads. They don’t know it, but they are looking for God and His love. They seek it out through sex. They seek it out through social media. They believe the lie that if they could just get a person of the opposite sex to love them – their broken road would come to an end. But it won’t – because all of the brokenness that sex and empty social media relationships or “boyfriend/girlfriend” searching only makes us empty.

I grieve that they have a worse road than my generation did. Perversion, confusion, and lawlessness abound – they don’t even know that they are lost. They can’t see that these things that keep breaking their hearts are actually northern stars.

All of those broken things are meant to point them to Christ.

I thought of my own broken road this morning as the Holy Spirit was playing that song in my head… and I would have to say that my broken road led straight to Him. All of my pain was a northern star --- pointing me on my way into His loving arms.

God was gently saying to me, “Don’t grieve daughter. The broken road that this generation is on – will lead them to Me.”

Today, no matter what age you are, God wants to bless your broken road if you let Him. See the pain that you are in as a northern star pointing you into His arms.

·

Pray to Him. Just talk to Him like He’s listening - because He is.

·

Yell at Him if you need to. He can take it.

·

Humbly ask Him for help. Humility goes a long way with God...

He can turn anything you are facing right now for your good. All you have to do is reach for His hand. God bless your broken road! May it lead you straight into His arms!

♫ “It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true.” ♫

Believers...Start Running from the Fence

I keep having this vision of a large number of people hanging around a fence.  There are people on either side of it.  Some are actually sitting on it. 

This is the fence of choosing to be in God’s Kingdom or the kingdom of this world.  Most of us have decided to be on one side or the other.  Those sitting on the fence have one foot in God’s Kingdom and one foot in the world.  They want to be a part of both.

I know in my spirit that every person hanging around this fence is wrong.  Even the Believers who have both feet on God’s side of the fence should not be hanging out near it.  It’s too tempting to look at the counterfeit green grass in the world and not take part in it.  What Believers should be doing is running away from the fence with all of their might.  They should be running the race toward the finish line – not hanging out so close to the world.

Those who have chosen the world because of all of the temporal things it has to offer will have to stand before the judgment throne and answer for what they did with their lives.  In fact, 1 John 2:15-17 has some pretty harsh words about people who choose the world.

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

If a person has chosen the world it is because they love their own desires more than they love the Lord.

The people who are sitting on the fence with one foot in both kingdoms are the ones who concern me the most.  I am concerned because I see so many people in the church who are straddling this fence. 

They want to love God but they also love their idols.  They want to love God but they also love the praise of men.  They want to love God but they also desire to live an easy life.  They are not willing to lose their lives to follow Christ.

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.  For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.  What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self? Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.  Luke 9:23-26

If you are a Believer and you are hanging around this fence.  You have become LUKEWARM.  You aren’t hot.  You aren’t cold.  And the time has come to make a decision.  It is time to decide if you want the praise of men or the praise of God.  If you are standing beside this fence a little too closely to the world.  You need to start running toward the Kingdom of God!

If you are sitting on the fence between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world – get down and start running toward God!  Lose your life and start running toward the most amazing experience you’ll ever have!  It’s painful to start with – but I promise you with everything that I am, it’s so worth it!

If you have already chosen the world but like to peek over the fence once in a while at God’s Kingdom because you find something intriguing – I implore you to jump the fence RIGHT now!

There is no better time to choose the Lord.  You will not have everything that the world offers you, but you will have an eternal home and a reward that lasts forever!  Don’t come to the Lord because of what He can give you.  Come to the Lord because of what He already did for you… He paid your bill on the cross.  Your sin and your shame have already been paid for.  Heaven is free to those who accept Him as Lord.  Get in this race, there’s still time!

I soberly sound this trumpet to all who are near the fence… START RUNNING!!!

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation.  I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!  

So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Rev. 3:14-16

Prophecy: America's Valley of Death

(I published this word earlier in the year - but I felt the unction of the Lord to republish it for such a time as this.)

Prophetically I’ve known it for a couple of years.  America is about to go through a Dark Night of the Soul.  It is that season where continual storms in life cause your true nature to arise.  It’s the point at which all of the dross, the dark things in our hearts, rise up in the midst of the chaos.  

The Dark Night of the Soul (click here) reveals your character

 and invites you to make necessary changes.

Pretty soon, 

America’s Dark Night of the Soul (click here

) is going to reveal where her true peace lies.  Does it rely on government?  Does it rely on money?  Does America’s peace rely on pride or nationalism?  One thing I can tell you for sure is that America’s peace does not rest on the rock of Jesus Christ.  Thus the reason for the coming Valley of Death.

We are no longer living in the “sweet land of liberty.”  We have lost our identity while the enemy has pursued our nation to dehumanize us and twist our thinking away from the reason God created our country in the first place.  We are in need of some severe mercy from the Lord.  The severe storms about to come upon America are meant to point out where our hearts truly lie.

The severity of God’s mercy will be a sweet relief for those who are already have been working to bring heaven to earth.  This Valley of Death will be a help to those who are wanting to see Jesus be the foundation of our nation again.  But the severity of God’s mercy will feel like the world is caving in to those who are not firmly planted in the identity of who God is and who no longer desire “liberty and justice for all.”

I had a vision of a television screen the other night before falling to sleep.  On the screen was a deep orange color that looked like lava.  I asked the Lord, if that was a volcano – did I need to pray against the destruction of a volcano?

The Lord responded to me, “No these are the fires of Mordor, this is how close we are to destroying the “Ring of Power” that rules over your nation.”

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the “Lord of the Rings” by J.R.R. Tolkein, darkness ruled over the people of the land with One Ring.  The One Ring was created by a Dark Lord Sauron and had power to spread darkness over the whole land and giving Sauron complete domination.  It was the quest of a few volunteers to give up their lives in order to destroy the ring by throwing it into the fires of Mt Doom in the land of Mordor.

Unfortunately, we see a similar story being played out right here in America.  A select few people have the power to “spin” America in any way that they see fit.  They are used to pulling strings and ruling over our economy, politics, media, racism, entertainment and even religion.  They are the puppet masters who pull the strings in order to see their will imposed on our nation.

Whether or not we have realized it – the true Church of God has been crying out for deliverance from these puppet masters. We have been crying out for the foundation of Christ to be reestablished in our nation as it once was.  We are crying out for the “sweet land of liberty”  - 

the land where our fathers died and land of the pilgrims pride

 – we are crying out again for FREEDOM!

The impending Valley of Death is the Lord coming to answer the prayer of His True Church.

This Valley - where everything that can be shaken will be shaken -  is meant to be severe mercy!

These are the things we are about to witness in the Valley of Death:

Government:

No longer will a few people be able to control the elections.  No longer will they be able to blackmail candidates and impose their chosen candidate upon us.  God is using Donald Trump as a wrecking ball to the establishment and to those who have the Ring of Power in politics.  He cannot be controlled even by the political correctness of the Church.  God has no problem offending the religious rules and regulations that the church has in their minds about what a righteous leader should look like. 

God is going to use Donald Trump to break the church free from their self-righteousness.

  God is using him as a wrecking ball and will continue to allow the bull to break up the china shop.  He will remain the instrument of God until the Lord is finished destroying the Political Ring of Power.  (I wish the church would be more grateful for this.)

This election will be the first election in a long time that we truly have FREE and FAIR elections, and it will largely be because Donald Trump will not bow.

Economy:

The economy will begin sinking into the mud.  Those with the Ring of Power are looking to take America out!  It will look as though we are headed for another depression, but that will not be the case. 

Intercessors will rise up and pray for the economy and God will answer those prayers and raise it up out of the sinking mud.  It will be such a drastic turn of events that even the media will have to give a second thought that something supernatural intervened.  

The rescue of the economy will be a humbling to the entrepreneur that their ways and formulas aren’t where their peace comes from, it only comes from the mercy and grace of God that they succeed. 

There will be losses because of the dip of the economy – but they will be small losses compared to what a depression would bring. 

Intercessors will unite in a new way realizing that they have power over the Puppet Masters of this world and a new and stronger faith will inspire many to begin to address the giants in the land.

The Ring of Power over our economy will have met the power of the intercessors – and it will lose.  Those who thought they could manipulate the economy to control America will be frustrated.  Their power will be greatly diminished and their ring destroyed.  

God's people will have renewed faith that God is truly the Provider.

Racism:

The main sin behind Racism is mastery.  When one group of people claims to be the master of another.  We have largely overcome the “mastery” sin from our days of slavery.  There are pockets throughout our nation that still simmer with this sin – but for the most part we are a nation who IS realizing the dream of Martin Luther King Jr.  The problem therein lies with a few who have learned to stoke the fading coals of racism for their own fame, power and financial gain.

There will be a judgment on the Ring of Power that continues to stoke this fire.  Riots and looting followed by curfews and heavy police action will continue and seem never ending.

The voice of Martin Luther King Jr will rise again this time it will be multiplied as God anoints several black and white leaders to increase and displace the Ring of Power.  There will be a balance and acceptance of the races once again in our nation, though a deep price will be paid to see this balance come.

Pride in Nationalism:

America’s standing in the world as a world power will be shaken financially and militarily.  

Those who think the United States should be the rescuer and policeman

 of the world will be shaken to the core in order to set them free from looking to a nation instead of Jesus.  America’s Ring of Power will be destroyed during the coming storms in order to make way for the true King of Kings to be on the throne of the sheep nations.

It will also set America free from always having to be the mediator.  Our attention and focus can be freed up to homeland security and domestic issues that are causing a weakness in the infrastructure of our nation.

The Church:

There are also wolves in the Church who have usurped great power over God’s people.  Religion and Witchcraft permeate the Church.  The Valley of Death will reveal the true from the false.  The eyes of God’s people will be opened to their true condition and recognize the places in their lives where they are not truly built on the Rock.

The strength that God’s people gain through this valley will be significant.  With their eyes open to their true condition along with understanding how to wield the power of God, the Giants of the Land like abortion, religious freedom and gay marriage will be easily overcome. 

The Third Great Awakening that we have been hearing about will begin to find traction.  And there will be no stopping the train of unification that happens as the Church lays down their petty offenses with one another and finds a unity in Christ instead of doctrine.

The Valley of Death will serve as a Damascus Road experience for much of the Church.  A realization of everything that is false will empower the Church with truth.  The power of discernment will increase and 

God’s people will lay down human kindness for the kindness of God(click here).

  A Holy boldness will rise up in the True Church and they will not be afraid of being called bullies in order to bring the Kingdom of God to earth.

The Ring of Power over the Church is essentially the fear of not being liked.  The media, the entertainment world, and the government have learned to use this Ring over God’s people.

It is in the Valley of Death that Believers will put to death their fear of being disliked.

The Ring of Power will be destroyed as the manipulation of being called “mean”will no longer work over God’s people(click here).

The Valley:

I am not looking forward to this Valley of Death – but I also don’t fear it.  This Dark Night of the Soul is exactly what our nation needs.  The discipline it brings is because the Lord loves us not because He is angry at us.  God is actually taking us through the valley to be set free from the power of the One Ring.

It IS a valley.  It is not the abyss.  We will come out of it and God will restore us.  Christ is not returning yet – His Bride is not ready.  The Bride will have the opportunity to be cleansed in the Valley of Death.  When dawn’s early light begins to shine again after the Dark Night of the Soul – America will be on its way to being the shining city on a hill once again.  We will not be the savior of the world but we will shine a light to the One who is the Savior.  This was God’s original intention for America from the beginning… to point to the good news of The Spirit of the Lord in which there is true Liberty.

My one prayer in the midst of all of this suffering is that we will be trained by it. 

The Body of Christ must understand that our FEELINGS don't matter!(click here) 

Let us not walk through such a severe discipline without being changed by it.  Whatever may happen in the Valley of Death – let our faith in flesh be the thing to die as we put Jesus on the throne in every way in our lives! 

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. 

Hebrews 12:11

A Word from the Lord for Those Discouraged About the Election

I know that we are in a tumultuous election season.  I know that many would like for it to be over with already.  But if we are not careful we will miss our opportunity rejoice in the trial that produces perseverance and maturity.  

We must take the next several weeks and use it to our advantage.  We must NOT put our head in the sand and hope for an end to the bickering.  We must not take the bait and get offended and angry at the quarreling, backbiting, and viciousness that is so prevalent this election season. 

If we get offended the enemy neutralizes us.  Offense leads to a desire to retaliate or a desire to quit.  But if we will keep our heads in the middle of the madness and chaos, we can actually steer the storm for the good of the Kingdom of God.

The Lord dropped this word in my Spirit for the Body of Christ:

My People - You are more powerful than this!  You have authority that you are not using!  Don't submit to discouragement -- Praise Me! 

The enemy hates it when you sing praises and worship Me because it ties his hands and hinders his plan. Stop letting the tiny demon of discouragement win.  If you know that I Am the I Am this election would not worry you in the least.

Whenever you see something or hear something that discourages you  - simply praise Me.  Sing a song.  Dance a dance.  Shout a declaration of My goodness and BELIEVE Me when I say that I AM the King of kings.

Stop letting discouragement win!  I AM Your hope.  Put your armor back on and we'll dance right through this storm!

You are more powerful than discouragement!!!  I AM the I AM!

He has given us a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.  (Isaiah 61)

Prophecy: What if God Is Not FOR You?

Recently the Lord lovingly admonished me about a lie that I had been believing.  He surprised me by saying, “Tisha, I love every person on earth, but I Am not FOR everyone. My favor and My blessings do not rest on everyone.  You mistakenly believe that I Am on the side of humans – while being opposed to My enemy, Satan.  This is not true. 

I Am FOR Myself.  I Am for My Glory, and I am on the side of every person who is seeking My Kingdom first.  I Am not on the side of those who are seeking their own kingdom.  I Am against the Anti-Christ spirit.  Anything that is not of Me and My kingdom is Anti-Christ.  I Am not FOR any human who would choose to follow the Anti-Christ spirit.  I desire their repentance - but My favor is not given out for free.

He continued,  “I Am also not FOR anyone who practices witchcraft.  I Am not FOR anyone who continually sins sexually.  I Am not FOR anyone who beheads My people.  I Am not FOR abusers.  I Am not FOR those who enslave women and children as sex slaves.  I Am not FOR people who use corruption to pad their own pockets.  I Am not FOR pastors who bend My truth to make people feel comfortable in their sin.  I am AGAINST them.

I oppose the proud.  I humble those with selfish ambition.  I will not tolerate those who use prostitute the giftings I have given them. I Am not FOR people who practice other religions.  I Am against the Pharisees.  I Am against those who teach the doctrine of demons. 

Part of your problem, My love, is that you haven’t understood this.  You have mistakenly thought that I was FOR everyone, and it is not true.  I will spit out of my mouth those who are lukewarm and those who seek to make My remnant stumble.

Many will be surprised that I have not been FOR them.  Many will be surprised that the things they blamed on the devil were actually Me resisting them.

Because I will not share My glory with another.  I Am the I Am. 

If you seek My Kingdom first, I Am FOR you.

If you seek your own kingdom first or the kingdom of My enemy – I am AGAINST you.

Seeking My kingdom first grants you My favor.

Seeking your own kingdom first gives you the hand of My resistance.

Judgment begins with My House, and you are about to see who I Am FOR and who I Am AGAINST.

Romans 8:31 begins with a crucial word, it begins with an “IF.”

If God is for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31

There is an “IF” at the beginning of this statement because it requires action on your part for Me to be FOR you.

I Am FOR everyone who is FOR My Kingdom!  If anyone repents and follows Me then I receive him and Romans 8:31 will apply to him.  But for everyone else who seeks his own kingdom of the kingdom of My enemy I spell out very plainly what will happen in Revelation 3:15-20.

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

God loves every human being.  But that does not automatically mean He is FOR us...

It's our job to be FOR Him and His Kingdom.  

Heavenly Father, may all of the lukewarmness be burned out of Your Church.

The Tipping Point of the Government Mountain

This is my monthly article for Cindy Jacobs ministry,

Generals.org.

One of the family stories I love hearing is from 1935 during the Great Depression. My grandfather was just out of high school when he found some surveyors examining the farmland owned by his father. When he approached and asked what they were doing, they informed him that the farm was being repossessed by the bank because the loan payments were not being made.

This news was a tipping point that caused my 19 year old grandfather to shift into high gear to help save the farm. He approached the bank for a loan to purchase some equipment and worked for his dad as a farm hand. He began to help his dad work himself out of the financial hole they were in.

As my grandfather’s five brothers graduated high school, they each spent two years working as farm hands. This caused the family farm to prosper greatly, enabling them to save it and to actually extend their territory during the Great Depression.

It was a huge mountain to climb, but they pulled together as a family, each person doing their part and laying down their lives. In the end, God rewarded them for it.

Remembering this story always encourages me to persevere when I walk through stormy seasons or feel like I am drowning. It inspires me to witness firsthand the fruit from the faithfulness of my grandfather and his brothers’ perseverance during the Great Depression.

Because my ancestors persevered through the trial and tribulation, I have hope. I know that if I simply remain faithful with what needs to be done, refusing to be afraid of the storm or the height of the mountain, then on the other side, I will prosper and extend my territory.

Perseverance is a spiritual principal that is part of my generational foundation. I have seen what my forefathers sowed, and now I am reaping their harvest.

I am reminded of these words from the apostle Paul...

Prophecy: The Coming Madness and Chaos in America Is For Our Good

I had a dream a last week. I dreamt I was a little girl in pig tails and I was standing in front of Father God’s throne. He was massive and was sitting on his massive throne. He picked me up and put me beside Him on His throne so I could see. We looked out over the whole United States. He said to me, “I need for you to remember that everything that’s about to happen is for your good.”

I then saw a great dark fog come over the whole nation. I knew it was violence and chaos. I had a “knowing” that He had held back the violence for a time because He was lining everything up so He could turn the chaos for the good of His kingdom. End of Dream

Upon waking I heard the US Olympic Anthem written by Katy Perry called “Rise” in my spirit. I knew the song was prophetic and the words were meant for the United States of America

Here are some of the lyrics:

♫ I won't just survive

Oh, you will see me thrive

Can't write my story

I'm beyond the archetype

I won't just conform

No matter how you shake my core

'Cause my roots they run deep, oh

Oh, ye of so little faith

Don't doubt it, don't doubt it

Victory is in my veins

I know it, I know it

And I will not negotiate

I'll fight it, I'll fight it

I will transform

When, when the fire's at my feet again

And the vultures all start circling

They're whispering, "You're out of time”

But still I rise

Just when the enemies of the US would say “You’re out of time.”

The Lord says…

“NO! Victory is in the veins of America. The United States shall transform and she will rise!”

The Lord was speaking to me recently about Babylon and how He is about to use all of the madness and the chaos to burn the spirit of Babylon out of this nation. Everything that is not from Him is about to be shaken. Everything that is built on the foundation of the world’s systems is about to clash with the foundation of God’s throne which is built on righteousness and justice! In the midst of the chaos people will die. Madness will ensue. But if our faith is in the Lord we have nothing to fear… not even death.

The Lord loves this nation. We are the only nation that has ever been founded because people desired to worship Him freely. The root of the United States is planted in the freedom of worship because a people loved the Lord so much they risked everything to find a land in which they would be FREE to serve Him.

We are on the precipice of losing America to the Babylonian system. But God has heard the cries of His people. He has heard our cry for freedom from the corruption of Washington DC, the corruption in Hollywood. He has heard our cry for the unborn and He has heard our cry for justice and truth concerning inequality among race and gender.

He has heard out cries and God is about to hit the RESET button in America!

I have heard prophecies about both judgment coming to America and the glory coming to America. This is something that we have difficulty dividing correctly – God intends to bring both! God loves the United States, there are those who are innocent and have not shared in the sins of Babylon. There are people who do not partake of pride, idolatry, cruelty, and greed that live in this nation.

God is going to judge the Babylonian System inside of the United States and it will set us free. He is going to set us free from the Pharaohs who think they own this nation.  Every single Pharaoh from the top to the bottom will be unseated. From the White House to the Church, every single person who dwells in pride will be humbled.

We each need to ask God to judge our hearts – We need Him to judge us for any pride, idolatry, cruelty or greed! We must bow low because the sword of the Lord is coming and if you are standing up in rebellion in any way – the sword the Lord is going to take you down.

Humility in Christ is the only thing that will help us to survive the coming chaos. Complete dependence on the Lord is the opposite of Babylon. If we are standing on the Rock of Jesus when these storms hit – everything will be ALL right!

Haggai 2:6-9 is about to come true in the United States and we will once again become His!

“This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the LORD Almighty. ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the LORD Almighty. 9 ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the LORD Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the LORD Almighty.”

Steps to Wholeness:

Lord I humble myself before You. I pray that You would judge me if I have any pride, idolatry, cruelty or greed in my heart. Reveal it to me so that I might repent. Please help me to remember that the days of chaos that are coming are for my good. Thank You for turning our nation back to You! In Jesus Name, AMEN

When a Prophetic Word Does Not Come to Pass

The most frustrating thing about prophecy… is free will.

When I was first learning about prophecy and prophetic words, I really struggled to understand the conditional nature of the prophetic.

A prophetic word, sometimes known as a word of knowledge, is a message from God for a person or a congregation.

These words can give us direction for our lives.  Prophetic words can be promises by announcing blessings God wants to bestow on us.  Or the prophetic words can be warnings to change our behavior.

God speaks to His people through the prophetic or He speaks to His people through the written Word of God.  

The promises of God that are written in the Bible are absolute truth and they are never changing.  Promises like “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  Or  “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all…”  Or “Come to Me, you who are weary and I’ll give you rest.”  These are not conditional promises.  They are trustworthy and you can have full confidence in these words.  They are written in pen…they are unerasable.

However, when I began to understand prophecy – I started to see that a message given through a person with a gift of prophecy was actually written in pencil.  If someone gives us a word from the Lord, outside of the Bible, it is a conditional promise and many times relies on our obedience to come to pass.

Let’s take the city of Nineveh and Jonah’s prophecy to them.  His word of knowledge was this: “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned.”  This caused a reaction in the people and they repented.  Therefore the prophecy did not come to pass… because of free will.  The people used their free will to turn to the Lord and Nineveh was not overturned.  (Jonah 4)

The opposite of this story is also true.  God can make wonderful promises through a prophetic word but then we never see them come to pass.  It may be because in the midst of our free will – we have turned away from God.

I remember a pastor getting a prophetic word that God was going to change his spiritual season during a specific month.  Three months later the man’s season had not changed yet, he just assumed the person giving the word had “missed God.” 

He inquired of the Lord why the change had not yet happened.  The Lord reminded the pastor that he was supposed to have his book written three months ago and the Lord could not change his season because the man had not obeyed him.

Moses had something similar and yet more severe happen to him.  God had promised Moses that he would take God’s people into Canaan, a land flowing with milk and honey.  Yet he sinned against God and the Lord repented of sending him into the promised land.  He died before the people crossed over.  (Numbers 20)

These very sobering verses in Jeremiah can apply to a person or a nation.  They give us a little more insight about prophecy and why it is conditional.

If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned.  And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, and if it does evil in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it.  Jeremiah 18:7-10

If God has announced that a nation (or a person) shall be destroyed – but that nation (person) turns back to God.  God will relent of sending disaster.  The converse is also true.  If God announces that a nation (or person) shall be exalted – but that nation (person) does evil in God’s sight, then the Lord reserves the right to hold back on His promise.

In very simplistic terms, say God wants to give you a brand new car.  He announces it to you through a prophet.  “God says before the end of the year He is going to bring you a brand new car.” But if you step out of the will of God and move to a different city in the midst of that year – he’s unable to give you the car.  You moved away from God’s will so it will most likely be unfulfilled.

Make sense?

The same is true of God’s timing.  He may have given you a prophetic word that He is going to bring you something during a certain season – but other people have made decisions apart from God’s will and it impacts what He is able to bring you.

Prophetic words are conditional.  They are written in pencil.  And our free will and the free will of others determines whether the prophetic word will come to pass.

This is another reason that Jesus did not give us a specific time that He was coming back for us.  He will be patient until He has the greatest advantage through the free will of His people to return.  Notice in verse 12 that using our free will to live godly lives can speed up His promise!

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.  …  You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.  2 Peter 3:8-12

Let us seek to use our free will to walk in righteousness and holiness.  In this way, all of God’s promises and prophetic words to us will be YES and AMEN.
