WHAT IS JESUS UP TO, AND ARE WE TRACKING WITH HIM?
Trends, patterns, constructs and societal change help us track with Jesus. Learning how to recognize the signs of the times is key to prophetic function. It's time the prophetic community shift from just getting a word, to returning to truly being like the sons of Issachar, who could discern the times and tell others what they should do.
"From the tribe of Issachar, there were 200 leaders of the tribe with their relatives. All these men understood the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take." 1 Chronicles 12:32
We as the people of God want to stay true to the heart of God and the spirit of prophecy, and especially in what God has called us to do. This requires more from us than just giving prophetic words and using our gifts. Please hear with me, what I sense God is saying and preparing us for, and how we are to begin navigating our lives, in such turbulent times.
We must not get stuck in what/how we have doing things in previous seasons in the prophetic movement and in the church as a whole. It is vital that we slow down and discern that things have changed and be willing to see that God is shifting things around right now on planet earth. It's his to do so anyway:
"The earth is the Lords, and everything in it. The world and all it's people belong to him. Psalm 24:1-2
The choice is ours to make. If you look back you over the course of your life, you will see where some people you know refused to shift with the times. For example, many in the modern day church thought the information age was the devils work, and would not get all God to shift them into a new mindset for the new time. I think this is where we see Mark 2:22 being important for us.
Mark 2:22 "And no one pours new wine into old wine skins. Otherwise the wine, will burst the wineskins and the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins." ( I believe this is a scripture we must wrestle with for its meaning and interpretation right now-no assumptions...but sincere seeking with the Lord...)
Some generations can't or won't shift because they won't change the way they think. We cannot be like this beloved. WE must change the way we think about what is taking place in he world we are in right now and begin looking at this new era in time from God's point of view.
This is our sign that God is doing something new.
Isaiah 43:18-19 "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
We can either stay stuck in yesteryear or we can track with where Jesus is going. God is doing something new and it's time we invite him to change the way we think. It's time we move from perceiving what God is doing (because I think we can all agree that it is happening)- to agreeing with him however he may be leading us.
For over a year now the Lord has been saying to me- prepare, prepare, prepare. I've been doing that in material ways, emotionally, psychologically, spiritually and so on; but I believe it's time to broaden our perspective with a more comprehensive look at what God is doing in our regions, state, the U.S.A and the world abroad.
WE don't want the times navigating us, we want to navigate through with the help and clarity of the Lord.. I believe he's inviting us to change the way we think, because that's the best preparation for where we are going. We must change our the lens' we have looked through and that will probably take some time.
A willingness and humility to BE and not strive continue to be highlighted to me as I shift with Him each day.
I believe God wants to re-establish us in rest- in sabbath-as we shift into this new place.
We must learn to rest in God, and sabbath is key to us experiencing it.
RE-LOOKING AT CITIZENSHIP
Although we know our citizenship is in heaven, we must not look at heaven as just some distant place where King Jesus rules along with His Father.
Jesus said the Kingdom of heaven is here, within you. The King is always present, the kingdom is always present, as Jesus resides from within by the Spirit of God, not as a far away land. And because of this, we reign here on earth- from this truth.
Therefore, wherever God has placed you in the earth, you are to rule with him, co-labor with him as kings and priests from a kingly and heavenly perspective.
So I invite you as Americans or whatever country you are from, to begin looking at who you are as kingdom heirs IN the earth-fully human and not trying to escape this earth but as agents of change, infiltrating systems, of society and reigning in this earth with our King within us.
We must be the leaders in this new and emerging era, not spectators or followers.
In order to do this we must look back and braille our history to find, trends, patterns and changes in societal constructs, so we know more about changing era's, and how to participate in this new place of time.
If you want to know prophetically what God is doing right now, then I invite and encourage you to take a look at all the historical time periods. The internet is at your fingertips and one click away from learning. This is true prophetic function... looking at the times, and the Scriptures.
Prehistorical Era (to 600 B.C.), Classical Era (600 B.C. -A.D. 476) , The Middle Ages (A.D. 476-A.D. 1000), The Early Modern Era (A.D. 1450-1750), Modern Era (A.D. 1750-Present).
Let us right now look at the most recent Era.
The Modern Era:
First Industrial Revolution (1760-1840)- with several innovations with technology; cotton gin, city factories and mills, and the completion of the Erie Canal.
Revolutionary Period (1764-1848)-American Revolution, French Revolution, Spanish American Wars for Independence, and the Spring of Nations
Age of Imperialism( 1800-1914)-where many nations colonized around the world; France, Britain, Spain and the Netherlands
Victorian Era- Reign of Queen Victoria, increase of urbanization, American Civil War and the end of African slavery.

RE-VISITING A DREAM FROM JANUARY 2017
"NOT BY MIGHT, NOR BY POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT"
THE WINDS OF CHANGE ARE BLOWING
Dream and the prophetic word that proceeded from the dream in 2017:
This is a time where I believe God is speaking to us through dreams.
More dreams are from God than are not, so please don’t discount your dreams. Dreams are God’s picture language to us that are parabolic, metaphorical and symbolic- so it takes time to unpack them.
In this particular dream I had in January 2017, I saw a storm brewing. There were incredible WINDS and a SOUND that caught my attention and I can still see the picture in my minds eye and feel what the sound produced.
I did not see the rain but I knew it was imminent. The dream lasted just a few moments, but as I took time to process it with the lord I sensed he was showing me what was coming.
In my dream I sensed this Sound and Wind to be a wave of Holy Spirit that is coming-as the BREATH of God and the Spirit of Truth-His voice. (THE GLORY OF GOD) in the midst of a storm.
The storm was brewing but God already had the Holy Spirit positioned to move in by his grace.
The storms that are brewing will come suddenly in the earth for many people, taking many forms in their lives, but God is allowing these storms to show you who is over the storms-who is really in charge of the winds and seas. Much will be shaken, but the eternal things will be what remains.
“Even then, his voice shook the earth; but now, he has made this promise: “One more time I will shake not only the earth, but heaven too!” And this phrase, “one more time,” makes clear that the things shaken are removed, since they are created things, so that the things not shaken may remain. Therefore, since we have received an unshakeable Kingdom, let us have grace, through which we may offer service that will please God, with reverence and fear. For indeed, “Our God is a consuming fire!”” Messianic Jews (Heb) 12:26-29 CJB
Where the enemy is TRYING TO SET YOU BACK in this storm- GOD IS GOING TO SET YOU UP!
Set you up for breakthroughs in the areas you’ve been contending for.
He wants you to know WHO AND WHOSE YOU ARE.
The enemy has been attacking your identity and attempting to thwart your purpose with distractions so that you will not rise up in the authority and power you possess by Holy Spirit.
A greater realization of GREATER IS HE WHO IS IN YOU- THAN HE WHO IS IN THE WORLD is coming.
Divine breakthroughs of mass proportions are coming through these storms. It will be hard to see at first because of all the noise and wind that the storm is bringing but as you fix your eyes on Jesus you will begin to see that God is doing something in the storm that will affect so many other people, not just you.
God is so very gracious and his desire is that everyone would be saved, understand the truth about His Son and know his goodness.
So this is the question. Can God trust you in the storm? Will you trust his character when you don’t understand his ways?
You may already be in the middle of this storm but you can be confident in this-what the enemy has meant for your harm God is going to use for your good.
He will come to you. He is not slack in his coming. He never sleeps nor slumbers, and while you wait for him to act he is perfecting you in the storm. He is developing you for his purpose in your life.
“Suddenly, the glory of the God of Israel appeared from the east. The sound of his coming was like the roar of rushing waters, and the whole landscape shone with his glory.” Ezekiel 43:2 NLT
I began to process this dream and I believe the Lord began to put some other things that he’s been showing me together with this dream so that I would have a clearer picture. As I asked the Lord for a confirmation, I believe the Lord highlighted to me this passage of scripture.
“…..’Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6 NASB
I believe the Lord is coming in the storm to restore our senses:
sight– visions and dreams
hearing-sound that will awaken us to his voice & his power
touch-we will experience his presence
smell-that will revive us- his breath-have you ever tried to smell without taking a breath?
oh taste and see that the Lord is good.
He’s coming to awaken our senses to who he is in us and in others.
This powerful work that the Holy Spirit is about to do in the earth will not be carried by human effort or strength, but by HIS SPIRIT in us and others that he is connecting us to this season.
Every persons gifts and anointing will supply what is necessary for victory and breakthrough. You are not in this alone. God is sending you help in your assignment.
Holy Spirit’s power and strength will be recognized in vessels that have been refined in this last season.
Are you prepared for the storm? (was this storm the result of covid or the election)
The Prepared Ones of God will carry the weight of his glory as they have oil in their lamps. It’s the oil and fire that they carry in them, the Holy Spirit, that will do the work.
No man will receive praise for what will be done, for it will be a sovereign work of God as you weather the storm.
He will be using many people in a team effort in your life, so pay attention to who God may be highlighting to you. Don’t discount anyone, because he will be using the most unlikely people and their gifts to speak to you in wisdom counsel and instruction.
Prayer brings great strength. In the places where the storm was sent to weaken people, they will know that strength that comes as they yield to his presence and Spirit in prayer.
A realization of: “Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NLT
Could it be the SOUND of great grace that’s coming?
“’What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” Zechariah 4:7 NASB
I believe we will see:
New kingdom relationships
A huge harvest of souls in a day
Supernatural joy and peace in people’s lives
New gifts experienced
New authority in prayer
People’s true identity & purpose realized
Conversions & new births (Nicodemus moments)
Angelic visitations & God encounters at night
Gods favor to build and do kingdom exploits
Renewed strength, health & vitality
New vision, knowledge & wisdom from God
The SUDDENLIES OF GOD
A Prevailing Wind
Expect to see more windy weather this year. ITS YOUR SIGN!
This wind will be a Prevailing wind that will carry the PLANS AND PURPOSES OF GOD to each person.
pre·vail·ing wind noun plural noun: prevailing winds a wind from the direction that is predominant at a particular place or season.
This wind prevails from above!
It will TRUMP all other winds that come against you.
Prevailing winds SHIFT COURSES! For many of you, this new wind coming will bring great change.
Change in location, even if it’s brief periods of times. God may need you somewhere very specific and send you on assignment.
Change in relationships. There is a time, season and purpose for relationships. Not everyone is meant to go the distance. God will be sending new people to you, so you may need to make adjustments with who you spend time with.
This wind will bring change in authority, as the purposes of God takes precedence in the earth. We’ve already seen the change of authority in American government. It will flow down to every member of society. That’s why you see all the turmoil and shaking in America. Ruling authorities are getting de-throned.
Jesus still commands the seas and the winds still obey his voice!
As in the book of Daniel, The Most High God, is involved in the affairs of men.
This wind of the Spirit will also alter current structures in this world. The structures of man will be blown down by this PREVAILING WIND of God, giving way to Kingdom structures.
This wind will shift the course of people groups and nations – for some IN A DAY, I sensed the Lord say. It will usher the arrival of many things, from OUT OF THE BLUE!
“Out of the blue” will be a term you will here over and over this year as these winds will blow in the SUDDENLIES OF GOD.
The fire of God that will accompany this wind will burn up and completely consume the lies, man made traditions and counterfeit things that have been planted in people’s lives which have kept them from being completely whole and free. Freedom fire!
Jesus said this:
“……And so you cancel the word of God in order to hand down your own tradition. And this is only one example among many others.” Mark 7:13 NLT
This wind of God as the SPIRIT OF TRUTH will blow away & DISPLACE wrong teachings, religious mindsets and paradigms that have been adopted as truths. NOT THE TRUTH – but man taught truths.
These ways of thinking have held a form of godliness but they did not allow God’s power to bring real change and transformation to peoples lives.
It’s a shift from man to God- from law to love! A reviving of men’s hearts towards the eternal purposes and mind of God.
The Pneuma of God
It’s the pneuma of God himself, invading planet earth. In the Greek, pneuma means- that which is breathed or blown!
This breath of God (Holy Spirit) will revive the downcast and those who have lost their way. It will stop many dead in their tracks as they receive this shot of vitality from God himself! It will give them new strength, purpose, vision and reason for living and new wind in their sails as God charts new courses of destiny for their lives!
The many who encounter this wind will slow down and really understand what it means to love, rest and trust in God. Hurry and striving will be a thing of the past for them as they ENTER HIS REST.
“Then said He to me, Prophesy to the breath and spirit, son of man, and say to the breath and spirit, Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath and spirit, and breathe upon these slain that they may live. So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath and spirit came into [the bones], and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceedingly great host. [Rev. 11:11.]” Ezekiel 37:9-10 AMPC
A GREAT ARMY will arise, but it won’t look like you think!
It may look the opposite in the beginning, for God’s ways are not our ways. As your senses become awakened and heightened, make sure you practice those senses by asking God questions and waiting for his response.
This will take time, don’t rush the process, remember God is not in a hurry, he’s about the journey, not just the final destination.
“Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong.” Hebrews 5:14 NLT
This wind will carry the weighty things of God as he releases the new assignments to those in this army. The greater the assignment, the greater the wind! As heavy as these assignments will be, the breath and strength of God will enable you to do with ease what would have been impossible before.
New forerunners and leaders will arise as a result of encountering this wind, as God rearranges and positions new leadership.
Be ready and expect God to use the most unlikely people. Don’t discount them or you may miss out on who he wants to use in your life to bless you.
You will begin to BREATHE WITH EASE as this wind blows upon you, filling your lungs with air! Don’t forget that the winds may begin as adverse but it will turn for you- at your back- as you continue to MOVE FORWARD in the storm.
SLOW DOWN AND LOOK AGAIN-God is doing something new in the earth!
It’s a NOT BY MIGHT, NOR BY POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT (MY PNEUMA) time says the Lord!

PROPHECY IS NOT JUST PREDICTIVE
I know that for many who will read this, the election is not over for you. And in fact it may not be with so many court cases pending. Nevertheless, I believe this is a time where we must begin to look at what was predicted, assumed or perceived would happen and what has happened thus far. I believe this election cycle has has given us in the prophetic community a chance to take a hard look at what we consider righteous preference and what is truly prophecy.
I believe we have a great opportunity before us in the Body of Christ and as prophetic people to grow and learn what true prophecy is-void of presumption and preferences. Prophecy is not just prediction. At the heart of all prophecy should be the person of Jesus Christ. My prayer is that as we move forward in the days ahead, no matter the outcome of the court proceedings, that we submit our preferences to the Lord and acknowledge His sovereignty in the matter, in this nation and in our lives.
I acknowledge that I made some assumptions about the scriptures I received from the Lord early in 2020 and the end of 2019. But as you can read below I never predicted that Donald Trump would get re-elected, as a result of those scriptures'- because I never got a word like that from the Lord. However I have learned many valuable lessons from this.
I'm a conservative politically, and always have been, but that must never interfere with my my election in Christ Jesus, as Pastor and Prophet. One of the first things I learned about being an Issacharian prophet was to expect the unexpected, especially as it relates to discerning the times we are in. Whether is it continuous change- which we all live in- or discontinuous change, change is always surrounding us. We live in short term change and long term change and all that change is the result of our choices-present and past. We rarely expect that discontinuous change especially when we walk in assumption. But like it or not, we must learn to accept change.
I voted for the candidate that best represented me and my value system, and because that candidate and political party had righteous policies, I assumed that candidate would win. And who knows maybe he will-but even if he doesn't, God is still on the throne and His purposes will prevail. I believe we are to vote for righteous policies, like the right to life and aligning with Israel, but the political system is only one system of influence in the earth. Yes it is a big one-I admit that, but when God shifts us into a New Time Period (ERA)-which I believe He has, then we can make no assumptions in this new place. Our preferences must never supersede what God is saying or doing. His ways are not our ways, and in times of transition and uncertainty we must not lean unto our own understanding, we must acknowledge him in all of our ways, and he will direct our path. I will always vote my conscious and I have a ton of scriptures that I could quote that would support that position, but that's not prophecy.
"...for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy." Rev. 19:10
I believe that in this new Era, God is requiring more from us. We must decrease and he must increase.
There is a new level of submission required of us in this new era, in every place, and for the church of Jesus this is no exception-especially prophetically. Humility must guide our decisions and the prophetic words we release.
Pride, assumption and presumption must go, and a greater humility, grace, repentance and surrender must be our new standards of operating in the prophetic. I can't even watch the news because of all the hate and discord spewing out from it. We are called to influence society not be influenced by it. This is how I keep my gaze on Jesus and how I keep my peace. We can't look to media outlets anymore for the truth-we never were meant to do that anyway; we must look unto Jesus-the author and finisher of our faith.
We must look to Jesus as our horizon and go where he is going.
I have definitely prayed for this election and for this nation as it relates to many things, especially for those in authority, but also in matters of national security and security for the president. I will continue to do so, as the bible commands it of me, no matter who the president is. That is the will of God, in Christ Jesus. I want to leave you with the scriptures, dreams or revelations I believe I received from the Lord beginning last December. So we can once again take another 'Look.'
Isaiah 43:18-19 "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Psalm 24:1 "The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;"
Proverbs 19:21 "Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails.
Mark 2:22 "And no one pours new wine into old wine skins. Otherwise the wine, will burst the wineskins and the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins." ( I believe this is a scripture we must wrestle with for its meaning and interpretation right now-no assumptions...but sincere seeking with the Lord...)
2 Timothy 2:20-21 "In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work."
Romans 12:1-2 "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
Proverbs 37:23 AMPC- The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].
Amos 9:11-13 “But also on that Judgment Day I will restore David’s house that has fallen to pieces. I’ll repair the holes in the roof, replace the broken windows, fix it up like new. David’s people will be strong again and seize what’s left of enemy Edom, plus everyone else under my sovereign judgment.” God’s Decree. He will do this. “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel: “They’ll rebuild their ruined cities. They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine. They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables. And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land. They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them. ”God, your God, says so.
My hope is that we take a fresh look at these scriptures WITH the Lord-free of assumption, preference and bias, so we can properly discern the times, and know what to do.

JULY AND BEYOND PROPHETIC WORD
We are in such a sovereign time of the Lord where his plans and purposes are coming about in the earth and in your life. God is about to do things that will shock you. God is about to do things that will blow your mind even. Eyes have have not seen nor ears heard , neither has it entered into the hearts of mankind all that God has planned. I see it so clearly this prophetic time in the Lord.
Right now I see Jesus in two forms. I see him riding in on a horse, wind blowing in his hair, and he is leading the charge against your enemies. I also see him as a male lion -Lion of the Tribe of Judah. And I am seeing him roar over every adversary, standing watch over you and guarding you. God will not be denied concerning your life. He is moving in the earth and he is roaring over enemy of fear, doubt and unbelief and destiny killing spirit in your life. He is contending with every liar and enemy that has stifled you in any area of your life . Jesus the Lion is roaring over every enemy standing in his way. I continue to see him standing guard and watching over you. (Psalm 121) God is restoring hope, joy and faith in the earth and he will do just as he has promised. (Proverbs 13:12)
As God comes in the earth to balance the scales of justice this will be a time of divine reversals and decisions that were levied against your destiny.
This is such a time of birthing his promises and long awaited dreams.
As we move throughout this week and into July we will experience a time of great harvest, shifting revival and divine destiny. Destiny and breakthrough moments will begin happening for us and popping up all around us. This is a time of such prophetic fullness and phatness.
Jesus is our mighty defender and he is warring on our behalf.
Generational strongholds and patterns will be begin losing their power and grip as well as we shift into the divine suddenlies of the Lord. Get ready for quick shifts and great joy as we shift into a time of sudden breakthrough. Get ready your barren days are over. You are about to sing a great song of joy and deliverance. I prophesy divine fruitfulness is coming to each of you. Double fruitfulness for many. There is such a divine shift into the eternal promises and purposes of God as we move throughout the rest of this year. Sudden change is upon many of you. Quick and sudden breakthroughs. So stand still and see the salvation and deliverance of the Lord as you enter into July and the remainder of the year. Many will be so shocked as God fulfills his promises in their lives. Great and precious promises are coming. It is not as you thought. It is not over -it is just the beginning. Stored up blessings, provisions, promotions and promises are coming. Deliverance will be on all sides as I strengthen you and empower you. Everlasting joy will be your portion as you march through the gates of new beginnings and fresh starts. Many things happening all at once as Amos 9 is yours.
“Trust in me to manifest all I have promised as I am not a man that I should lie or the son of man that I should repent -if i said it... then it is so. Trust in me says the Lord for this grand new beginning. No part of your destiny is delayed any longer.”
Altars of Baal and structures of men are also coming down in this new era and wave of my glory. I am promoting some and demoting others. Promoting my chosen few in some places and chosen many in others. Trust in me says the Lord -again I say trust in me.
“For I know the plans I have for you...”
I am opening the wombs of my people and barrenness is breaking off of them. I am sending them the rain of heaven upon their destiny, plots and lands. Regional revival is here and it is awakening destiny in my people first. Destiny is bursting forth and no more of their destiny will be denied.
I see and sense such an urgency on this in the spirit. No more of your destiny will be denied. It’s not coming it’s already here so reach up by faith and pull it down. For some people that have waiting a long time you will be shocked at how quickly God will do it-ALL OF A SUDDEN. I see sudden shifts-24 hour shifts.
Overnight breakthroughs. I hear in the spirit that God is marching all through this land taking over as the earth is the Lords, the fullness thereof the world and the people in it. We are in a not by might not by power but by my spirit says the Lord of host and I will not be denied.
““Sing, O barren one, who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who have not been in labor! For the children of the desolate one will be more than the children of her who is married,” says the Lord. “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes. For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left, and your offspring will possess the nations and will people the desolate cities. “Fear not, for you will not be ashamed; be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called. For the Lord has called you like a wife deserted and grieved in spirit, like a wife of youth when she is cast off, says your God. For a brief moment I deserted you, but with great compassion I will gather you. In overflowing anger for a moment I hid my face from you, but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord, your Redeemer. “This is like the days of Noah to me: as I swore that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth, so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you, and will not rebuke you. For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. “O afflicted one, storm-tossed and not comforted, behold, I will set your stones in antimony, and lay your foundations with sapphires. I will make your pinnacles of agate, your gates of carbuncles, and all your wall of precious stones. All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. If anyone stirs up strife, it is not from me; whoever stirs up strife with you shall fall because of you. Behold, I have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and produces a weapon for its purpose. I have also created the ravager to destroy; no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.” Isaiah 54:1-17 ESV
“Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around.” Proverbs 13:12 MSG
"The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance." Psalms 16:6 NIV
I prophesy this is a time of sudden good breaks where heartache is losing its grip on you.

"It Is Time for a Shift of Mass Proportions"
God has a way of getting our attention where we have no other choice but to get on our knees and call on his name.
Joel 2:12-14 That is why the Lord says “Turn to me now, while there is time.
Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief,
but tear your hearts instead." Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate,
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish. Who knows? Perhaps he will give you a reprieve, sending you a blessing instead of this curse. Perhaps you will be able to offer grain and wine to the Lord your God as before."
Did a world-wide pandemic NEED to occur for us to realize our need of Him? No it didn't, but unfortunately that's exactly what we are dealing with. And this isn't all that is coming dear ones. Few things shifts us like a crisis, whether it is health, famine or natural disasters. That's just the way it is, so we need to stop fooling ourselves and being religious. And no this not God's way of doing things- but he does know what it takes to awaken mankind and shift their hearts back to his Son Jesus.
Looking to Jesus
Hebrews 12:1-2 "Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,
Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]."
Repentance gets our hearts in position and shifted under his divine authority like nothing else does. We need to humble ourselves right now people of God. Praying shifting prayers like:
"Create in me a clean heart Oh God and renew a right spirit within me...." or all of Psalm 51 for that matter, is a great place to start.
Repentance in prayer shifts us into further aligning with his heart, truth and principles. The depth of our revival will be dependent upon the depth of acknowledgement of wrong doing and repentance is now the key--how low can we go in repentance and humility?
1 John 1:8-9 CJB "If we claim not to have sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we acknowledge our sins, then, since he is trustworthy and just, he will forgive them and purify us from all wrongdoing."
We cannot fix ourselves. Jesus Christ is to be our Lord and Savior and he will do the fixing and purifying as we yield our hearts and lives to him. We need only to repent, do what his Word commands us and trust in him.
The height of your repentance will determine the height to which you will be healed and soar in the days ahead.
2 Chronicles 7:13-14 CJB "If I shut up the sky, so that there is no rain; or if I order locusts to devour the land; or if I send an epidemic of sickness among my people; then, if my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land."
The time is now-don't put it off.
It's Time for World-Wide Harvest and Reset
One of the first things a crisis will do is uncover the need for change. As the corona-virus outbreak continues to spread, we will see more and more restrictions being imposed. Protocols are being put into place to provide safeguards for all people. Why? It certainly isn't because it is so deadly, as the Swine flu was much worse. This is a picture of the divine reset that is taking place in the earth. As a society we have lived our lives out of control, for far too long-not properly governing ourselves or discerning what is going on in the world around us. Many, not all, live oblivious to the things that are out of order in their lives or in the earth. As Americans, we can be very selfish and self-focused and God is coming for that. Flesh cannot live in his presence, so let me encourage you to allow him to deal with all idolatry, and fleshly sin issues.
Galatians 5:19-21 "Now the doings (practices) of the flesh are clear (obvious): they are immorality, impurity, indecency, Idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions), party spirit (factions, sects with peculiar opinions, heresies), Envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Things are Changing and Will Never Be the Same
Earlier in the year I released a prophetic word from the Lord about the standards of righteousness that God was ordering in the earth-you can read it in one of the articles I wrote below this prophetic word. New standards are here.
We can see how this global reset is currently taking place in all areas of society. We must get activated to cooperate with the Lord and his standards as these change continue taking place. This reset is happening in families, governments, the private business sectors, banking and financial markets, media, education, religion, entertainment and personally in our lives.
Listen dear ones, God ain't playing. This is something he said to me in December 2019. We are living in very serious times, unprecedented times, right now. The bible calls it perilous times.
2 Timothy 3:1-3 KJV 'This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."
We certainly don't want others shifting away from us, nor God, for our lack of obedience and repentance, so don't delay, turn back to God beloved. God is moving as sovereign in the earth, and we must obey him his word,and listen to his prophets.
2 Chronicles 20:20 NLT “Listen to me, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm. Believe in his prophets, and you will succeed.”
Not All Fear is Bad
Right now we are dealing with a global pandemic that for many has brought on fear, anxiety and panic; and yes fear that brings on torment or bondage needs casting out-but let's remember that not all fear is bad.
Matthew 10:26-28 "But don’t be afraid of those who threaten you. For the time is coming when everything that is covered will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all. What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear!“Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell."
I Am Sounding the Alarm-Get Prepared
God is calling for his intercessors and prophets to arise and pray like never before, for regional and global revival.
Ezekiel 33:1-9 NLT "Once again a message came to me from the Lord: “Son of man, give your people this message: ‘When I bring an army against a country, the people of that land choose one of their own to be a watchman. When the watchman sees the enemy coming, he sounds the alarm to warn the people. Then if those who hear the alarm refuse to take action, it is their own fault if they die. They heard the alarm but ignored it, so the responsibility is theirs. If they had listened to the warning, they could have saved their lives. But if the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn’t sound the alarm to warn the people, he is responsible for their captivity. They will die in their sins, but I will hold the watchman responsible for their deaths.’“Now, son of man, I am making you a watchman for the people of Israel. Therefore, listen to what I say and warn them for me. If I announce that some wicked people are sure to die and you fail to tell them to change their ways, then they will die in their sins, and I will hold you responsible for their deaths. But if you warn them to repent and they don’t repent, they will die in their sins, but you will have saved yourself.
Prophets and intercessors, it is time to take your place on the walls-pray and warn the people.
As you arise and pray- change will occur. As you plow in prayer- answers will arrive swiftly-as you decree a thing, it will be established- as you prophesy the hammer of the Lord will knock down long standing man-made kingdoms. God is moving in by his Spirit and having his way. The world will experience not only health crisis, but financial ones and natural disasters in the days ahead.
BUT GOD will work it together for the good of those who love him and are called according to his great purpose. Romans 8:28
Rise Up People of God, The Time Is Now
Rise up prophets, and let your mouths be like trumpets, blasting loudly the Word of the Lord. Let the Word of the Lord come through you, dividing and cutting asunder soul and spirit. Rise up intercessors and birth forth the eternal purposes and plans of God. Rise up evangelists and go forth in deliverance, healing and with messages of salvation and hope returning the outcast to their families. Rise up mom and dad and take back your households, governing your family for the glory of God. Rise up you great entrepreneurs and flourish in times of famine, as it is time to set up the economies of God in the earth. Rise up Apostles and build says the Lord, build centers of higher learning, equipping people for a brighter tomorrow. Rise up and build new mental health hospitals with a kingdom mandate for healing and deliverance. Rise up pastors and feed the sheep, teach the sheep, and shepherd the sheep. Rise up, rise up, rise up, whoever you are and get in place.
Joel 2:28-31 AMPC "And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.
Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit. And I will show signs and wonders in the heavens, and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke.
The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes."
"I will pour out my Spirit upon all people."
Recently while I was in prayer, the Lord began highlighting the earth to me. I kept sensing his involvement, re-ordering and re-structuring throughout the whole earth. I then remembered a vision the Lord gave me a few years back where I saw a neighborhood with fires on rooftops. These fires weren't burning the houses in the way you would think. I knew in the vision that these were house churches where God had ignited his power, passion and presence there. I knew a time was coming where people would be meeting in homes and his glory and presence would be there. Whole families being restored to Jesus, where a re-kindling was occurring. Houses of his presence where he made his abode there.
God's ways and customs are not our ways and customs, but they can be, as we offer ourselves as living sacrifices and lay down on the altar daily, where we burn for him. Living sacrifices is what he wants. This scripture has been burning in me for the last 6 months at least. We must offer ourselves up to God as living sacrifices in this time as he resets us and brings us back into divine order.
Romans 12:1-2 NLT "And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."
A Fire That Cannot be Contained
God's presence can't be contained in any structure made by man. And when wants to restore humanity and reform us- he will do it with his fiery presence. Fire is not always a bad thing. When the fire of God comes, it is an all consuming fire that will burn up anything not like him. It is a fire that destroys the things standing in the way of you experiencing true intimacy, presence and power. His fire produces the holiness and righteousness of God in your life, as Jesus takes his place on the throne of your heart. Remember friends that God is holy and we are commanded to be holy people just like him.
Being isolated and removed out of the ordinary, mundane and familiar is a great opportunity for a personal or family reset. Look dear friends, this is happening, and things will never go back to the way they were before. The Lord showed me in mid January that a shift had occurred and the NEW had come. I didn't fully understand all of what that meant until right now. You better get on board and agree with what God is doing now or you may miss your opportunity to flourish. SHIFT RIGHT NOW!!
God wants to take his people into a land of plenty, even in times where others are experiencing a famine. Not only to sustain you but to help others. What the enemy meant for your harm God will use to bless you and preserve others. We will be positioned to bless and help people and show them Jesus.The scripture is full of famines and we're not exempt from such things in our world today.
It is time to slow down says the Lord and allow my spirit to re-ignite some old passions and desires.
Not everything old is bad-sometimes when God comes to do something new in us he will RE-NEW something he started or did in us long ago.
We must adjust our lens and ask God for eyes to see what he is doing world wide right now. We must humble ourselves and pray for God to forgive us and heal us. God is orchestrating many things all at once, in the world and in your life; and I exhort you to stop and pay attention. Spend time quietly in his presence and wait for him to speak. Ask God for wisdom and for strategies. I offer a few in this article.
Allow this time to slow you down to the speed of now. I believe God is shifting us into a higher place of living inside of him where we live from his eternal perspective, wisdom and knowledge so we know how to navigate in times of famine and storms and not from a worldly mindset.
This will prepare us for a worldwide global harvest. Things are going to start heating up so fast our heads are going to swim; but we must not fear or panic when we see things shifting or changing because God is in control. Economies will shift, businesses will shift, banking systems will shift, governments will shift, as the Lord of Hosts restructures the kingdoms of this world. Territories are about to shift and revival is about to break out all around the globe.
Psalm 24:1 "The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, the world and they who dwell in it."
Rev. 11:15 "The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord and his Messiah, and he will rule forever and ever!”
Places and kingdoms that some people thought would never shift will see tremendous change as the kingdom of God is established as he comes in to rule. It's time for revival reformation to occur and it will-globally- as a divine ordering and reset is taking place.
SWIFT CHANGE WILL OCCUR IN SOME PLACES
God is about to come and remove some out of positions of power, influence and wealth. The final verdict and judgment has begun in some of these cases. Harvey Winstein being one of them. The greater the influence, the greater the exposing and judgment. We know God is judge and we must position ourselves and our hearts accordingly, when we see him coming to reckon things. God is judging and bringing a final verdict in the cases of those people, especially leaders who refuse his correction right now. We have only known times of grace but we are not in that season.
He is exposing and judging things according to his time, plans and purposes. You will see an exposing taking place in high ranking government positions, and all the way down to every sphere of influence in society with those who have refused the chastening of the Lord, and have not repented or turned from their evil ways. Righteousness matters to God and for some who have consistently refused the Lord's correction, their time is up, and the time is now. It will start in the house of the Lord.
Many are being ousted the Lord says. Some have walked the tight rope for far too long and their time is up. There will be a great fall because of the sin of pride. This will cause an uprising to occur, but you must not lose faith in me, says the Lord-return to me with all your heart when you see these things happen.
Return to me in stillness, prayer and in quietness and trust.
Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and remove them off the fallen. You will be surprised at who goes says the Lord, but you must remain positioned and on your post as I remove the kings and kingdoms of idolatry and every man-made thing.
There is no partiality with God and I see God coming for all areas of injustice where great harm has occurred- especially racism and nepotism. God is putting who he wants into place for global impact and harvest and the time is now. Just when you thought God forgot about you, and you were overlooked- just wait, the doors are about to open for you.
Galatians 6:7 "God will not be mocked, whatever a man sows, he will reap."
Romans 2:11 CJB "For God does not show favoritism." AMPC "For God shows no partiality ,[undue favor or unfairness; with Him one man is not different from another]"
HIS SHIFTING POWER IS UPON MANY RIGHT NOW
"There is an opportunity right now to get healed, delivered and go forth in destiny, says the Lord. This is NOT a time to shrink back, be fearful or doubt who you are." God is perfecting things concerning your life, so don't hesitate in going forth in the ways he has been shaping or preparing you. Let your trust in the Lord perfect your hope and confidence that God has never failed you and he never will. GO FORTH-THE TIME IS NOW.
So how does this work for you? PREPARE PREPARE PREPARE. Repent and agree with the Lord in all areas of surrender. Let it start with your heart, for every issue stems from there. Agree with his promptings, pay attention to what keeps repeating to you. Pay attention to your dreams, nothing is coincidental right now as God is speaking and revealing his purposes in the earth. Most of all- SEEK HIS FACE.
IT IS TIME TO GET PREPARED
Matt. 25:1-4 “Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil."
12 STEPS TO ORDER
repent for all stubbornness, idolatry, rebellion and pride-God is coming for these sins
prepare and partner in divine health, boost your immune system-the way you eat, exercise etc-get strategies
prepare at home with your family and with your children/parenting by allowing God to establish order in the home
prepare in your marriage-seek the Lord together and ask the Lord to help you stay unified
prepare financially-ask God for wealth and kingdom strategies and have paper copies to prove your payments- the whole paperless thing sounds good, but it leaves you with only digital copies to prove what you owe or have paid.
prepare at work to influence and take your place as God's government official and in other spheres of influence as well
prepare for your future-planning ahead-not living one day or month at a time-stock up at home with canned goods and other household resources with a couple of months in mind
prepare in your relationships by sharing ideas and strategies while investing personally in the people God gave you
prepare your ministry by training those you have-looking at any restructuring that needs to take place -Matthew 6:33-Kingdom/global mindset vs.church mindset
prepare your own soul-get further healing/deliverance where-ever needed
prepare spiritually- Today is the day of salvation-make Jesus your Lord for the first time or renew your vow to serve him wholeheartedly
prepare to be the answer in the world -you write the books, or host the webinars, you take the lead and shape your world with your unique blueprint-you start the school, open the business etc...
"The Year of the Hand of the Lord"
As the Hand of the Lord comes upon your life, divine order, protection and blessings will begin taking place as you agree and prepare. God has orders of protection over your life, so don't fear a thing. Trust in and declare out loud- Psalm 46, 91 and 121 often. God is ordering his angels to watch over you. He is guarding your going out and your coming in. The Lord is the shade at your right hand, your shield, fortress and refuge. It is a year of his authority ruling on your behalf and in your life, were his verdict is final and where he has the last say. But you must prepare and submit to all of his directives and instructions right now.
If you do not prepare, and allow God to re-order your life, you will be left behind in what he is doing. Get under the shadow and protection of the Lord right now, by cooperating with him in every way. Not everything is a guarantee, we must agree with God.
I further prophesy that those the Lord is and has been preparing are coming forth now out of obscurity and into a time of arising and shining. They are coming into destiny, fruitfulness and plenty even when the world at large enters a global reset and time of famine. God is blessing and prospering his "prepared ones" and is shifting them into places to offer strategies and solutions from the throne room of heaven as well as, "being" the answer themselves. God is putting people into place right now for what is coming in the world.
"So be not dismayed says the Lord, when I shift you or your family. Some will shift to new locations, new territories, new spheres of influence, starting new businesses, new companies or new ministries. Don't forget that I am doing something new in the earth. These shifts will occur everywhere in the world. I am putting my Kingdom Shifters into place, all around the globe "for such a time as this." I am re-ordering things says the Lord and it is beginning in the home. I'm ordering new structures and ways of being together as the old ways are passing away. So get ready for the new things, and get prepared to shift. Get prepared to shift mentally as you take your mind back- get prepared to shift physically as you take your health back and get ready to shift practically as I show you a new and living way to prosper."
Get Into Place-Shift Right Now!
Esther 4:13-14 "Mordecai sent this reply to Esther: “Don’t think for a moment that because you’re in the palace you will escape when all other Jews are killed. If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?”
Go where the Lord sends you and do what he tells you to do. Salvation will come from another if you refuse to go. God is not playing right now and in times when he is moving as sovereign, grace looks very different. He will have his way this year and you can either get on board or you better move out of the way.
I encourage you to read the other prophetic words below as they gel and work together. God is bringing great restoration and recompense but it doesn't always come wrapped in the packages or look like we think it will. So look up and get ready, and be encouraged as the Lord brings his government and kingdom here on earth to restore his divine order.
February 6, 2020
God Is Indeed Doing a New Thing- A Part 2 Prophetic Word for 2020
As 2019 came to a close, as usual, I began to process with the Lord what the new year would hold as we journeyed with him. I've learned to live my life from this perspective as God doesn't do things randomly, and nether should we. This time I realized it was not only a new year that was approaching but a whole new decade and new "time" in the Lord. For years now God has continued to highlight Isaiah 43:19 to many in the Body of Christ.
"See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."
I have literally been holding onto and heralding this message for over 3 years. At the end of January, I sensed the shift occurred where we truly entered a new place with the Lord. I know this applies to my ministry but I believe this is occurring in the Body of Christ as well. Part of the problem with us understanding new places is that they are new-never experienced before.
New: already existing but seen, experienced, or acquired recently or now for the first time.
The word for new in this scripture also means "fresh." So God will come and do a fresh thing in our lives. He will sometimes reset us and bring us back to something that didn't work in a previous season and make it fresh again to us, because of his timing and purposes. Many times in new seasons with the Lord, we begin learning things from a fresh perspective in him. There's nothing like journeying with God. It's like he will pick something back up with us that he started long ago and make it brand new or add a fresh wind on it, so we are revitalized in that new place and ready to bring it forth. It's almost like we've been processed over time to receive it again.
What new things is God doing in you? Where are you right now in your process? Do you even perceive it?
One of the ways I believe God is working in all of our lives, is by clearing out the old so we can handle the new things he desires us to carry and navigate. Mixture is an enemy to the pure things of God. God is undefiled -which means he has no corruption, impurity or anything unclean in him. The bible says in James 1:17 that God never casts a shifting shadow. He is indeed only pure, holy, virtuous and righteousness. So when desires to do something new in us, it will require a cleansing out of all things old, so that we carry his divine nature and character.
Mark 2:22"And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”
Timothy 2:20-21"In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work."
When God begins to do something new in us we must forsake old ways, which includes old standards and old ways of operating and doing life. It requires change and a shift in our thinking and living. His standard for change is always righteousness. He changes his standard for no one and for no generation. For some reason this generation believes God doesn't require righteous standards any longer, but its his way to us measure from a pure place and in justice. This change will require that we take some honest self examinations, and seek out deliverance and healing for our souls. Sin wounds and rules our souls and shapes us in iniquity with ungodly cycles and patterns of living .
God is coming for haughtiness in this new season. He is coming for all disobedience, anger, rebellion, stubbornness, fleshly tendencies and proclivities in our lives. He is coming for all unrighteousness and all ungodly fruit so he can restore us to himself and his presence.
Because God chose to partner with us in the earth in seeing his kingdom and will established as it is in heaven. But before we partner and go forth in all the new things with him, we must first undergo our own cleansing so we are RE-NEWED and REVIVED. We must undergo a purging from the old behaviors and thought patterns that lead us further into bondage in past seasons. He wants to restore us to his presence and get our generational blessings to us but the generational curses and iniquities must be dealt with first. God has an order of things.
God wants to take us into new land and new territories, but not looking like we did in the old seasons of our lives.
He is the fire and refiner and he is consuming us with his holy fire as we lay down our lives on the altar of sacrifice.
Romans 12:1-2 "I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, [but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
In these new places we will experience great abundance and harvest, and long seemingly overdue promises, for it is a time for promises to be fulfilled. It's a time where hope is no longer deferred in this new place of inheritance and blessing.
God is commanding the blessing on your behalf, as you have been faithful in prior seasons. He has seen all your toil and labor that you have done for him and he is well-pleased.
He's also bringing the prodigals home in this new season, so hold on mom and dads, the outcasts are returning home to Jesus, as Jesus is making ALL THINGS NEW.
In this new time of Holy Spirit expansion there will be times of great revival, where many souls will come in.
God is restoring righteousness in the earth in this new era. God is re-establishing order in every facet of society. Starting in the home and going all the way to national governments-on every level he is establishing his righteousness as his standard.
God is restructuring and rebuilding according to the blueprint of righteousness. New spiritual building codes and new protocols are being issued from heaven as God is rebuilding us -his temples and we must comply.
Haggai 2:3-9 NLT "Does anyone remember this house—this Temple—in its former splendor? How, in comparison, does it look to you now? It must seem like nothing at all! But now the Lord says: Be strong, Zerubbabel. Be strong, Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people still left in the land. And now get to work, for I am with you, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. My Spirit remains among you, just as I promised when you came out of Egypt. So do not be afraid.’ “For this is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: In just a little while I will again shake the heavens and the earth, the oceans and the dry land. I will shake all the nations, and the treasures of all the nations will be brought to this Temple. I will fill this place with glory, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. The future glory of this Temple will be greater than its past glory, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. And in this place I will bring peace. I, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!””
Hebrews 12:25-29 NLT “Be careful that you do not refuse to listen to the One who is speaking. For if the people of Israel did not escape when they refused to listen to Moses, the earthly messenger, we will certainly not escape if we reject the One who speaks to us from heaven! When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: “Once again I will shake not only the earth but the heavens also.” This means that all of creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain. Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire.”
Philippians 2:9-11 NLT “Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Havakuk (Hab) 2:14 CJB “For the earth will be as full of the knowledge of ADONAI ’s glory as water covering the sea.”
"This great shaking that is coming will affect everything, yes even the deep places and bowels of the earth will feel my shaking says the Lord. For I will pour out my spirit on all flesh and my glory will cover the earth even as the waters cover the seas. All People shall know that I am Lord of heaven and of earth."
This shaking will reveal what is deep within the heart of man. It will reveal secrets. He is coming for the deep hidden things. He is coming to shake down every high place and anything established in idolatry. He’s coming for all ungodly structures in us and in the world. Every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Jesus Christ is coming down in this great time of shifting/shaking. God is going deep within the heart of man to sift it all out.
Pt. 1 2020-The Year of Divine Order and Recompense
Proverbs 37:23-25 KJV-The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
David said I have been young and now I am old and I have never seen God forsake the righteous ones.
Proverbs 37:23 Ampc- The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].
The year where God is having his way and he is repaying his righteous ones for all the years the thief and the robber has stolen from them. He is restoring those whose hearts are set on him. A year and TIME of abundant harvest as God decrees it. (Amos 9:11-15) He will be divinely ordering breakthrough and blessings and abundance- where God restores and returns to you what was lost or stolen. This includes a time of great harvest and abundant blessings and a return of the exiled ones. It’s a year of divine restitution and recompense, where you lift your eyes up and know where your help has come from. From the lord! He is Lord over all! He is Maker of heaven and earth. It’s the year of God’s divine order where his orders of protection and deliverance will be experienced and known. The Lord is your guardian. You will know him as guardian this year. He watches over you to keep you from stumbling. He watches over your coming and going. He watches over his divine orders for you to make sure they are completed. God is your Shepherd and Overseer of your destiny and all that pertains to you. He oversees your progress and his plans for our lives as our shepherd guardian. As my guardian God is Divinely ordering my steps, relationships and his plans!
“You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.” Proverbs 19:21 NLT You can be sure that God's purposes will prevail in your life as you heed the voice of the Lord and follow his ways this year.
It’s a year of the fear of the Lord. “Fear of the Lord leads to life, bringing security and protection from harm.” Proverbs 19:23
It's a year of great fruit and divine favor-a year of great promised restoration and divine harvest.
“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel:“They’ll rebuild their ruined cities. They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine. They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables. And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land. They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.” God, your God, says so. Amos 9:13-15 The Message
God is restoring his temples of worship -it’s his people, we are the temple of the Holy Ghost. In this harvest there will be massive salvation's and conversions, much like Saul of Tarsus. A great harvest of the Land and a returning to the Lord, with weeping and repentance.The restoration of his temple will usher in the greatest glory of his presence to the world. (Watch Israel this year)
It’s a year of heralding the word of the Lord and seeing his promises fulfilled in our lives. It's a year to trust what the prophets are saying and follow their instructions.
"And they rose early in the morning and went out into the wilderness of Tekoa. And when they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be established; believe his prophets, and you will succeed.” 2 Chronicles 20:20
God is ordering a correction to the way we see things. A correction to the way we view him and his word. . A year of knowing Jesus the shepherd the Guardian and the prophet. A year of Gods justice and remembering that righteousness is his standard. It’s a year of his authority and a year where God rules in matters with a final verdict. God has the final say in our lives. “The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof, the world and the people in it.“... and God has the final say in your life as everywhere is his jurisdiction- he is the highest ruling authority-PERIOD!
It’s a year of divine gate-keeping where people will take there place in regions and territories.
It’s a year were God's voice will be heard through decisive decisions and rulings. There will be no mistake that it was God ruling in the matter. Great interventions of the Lord will take place as God intervenes and overseers matters in the lives of his people.
God's justice will sweep across this land and continent by his Spirit because HE WILL have his way. It’s a year to keep your eyes looking up to Jesus as the author and the finisher of your faith. It’s a year to lift up your eyes to heaven for your help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121.... It’s time to put your trust hope and faith in the Lord.
Psalm 91 will continue to be a place of refuge for us as the people of God and must be declared out often.
Lastly, we will see spectacular displays of God’s power and glory, for God is repairing and rebuilding his people right now. This re-positions us and prepares us to be temples of his glory -his divine presence virtue strength and power. God is restoring his priesthood! (Ezekiel 44). It is time of great destiny moments and of breakthrough as we cross over to our inheritances and promised lands, for it is indeed a time of epic shifts of divine proportions.

The Restoration of the Gift of the Apostle to the Earth
On May 1, 2019, I was awakened a little after midnight, to an encounter with the Lord. In the encounter I sensed the heart of Father God for the grace gift and office of the apostle. His love, desire and heart for the apostle was very much impressed upon me as I laid there listening to his voice. I had a sense that hell really hated the office and gift of the apostle, but that Father God really loved them. Depending on the streams of ministries that you follow, or church you attend, you may not hear much about the role of the apostle in the New Testament church of today. However, that is not the New Testament of the Bible.
"Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit."Ephesians 2:19-22
In this time with the Lord, I really had the strong sense not only of his love but the honor for the apostle. It is being restored in the earth. Minds will change about who they are and what they bring as a gift to the church and earth. I think we many times forget that the culture of heaven is one not just of love but of honor as well.
Apostles are builders and reformers and are foundation to kingdom work and expansion. They have a grace to plow, build and work and that's why they operate so strongly in the Ox and Nehemiah anointing.
"Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle." Rev. 4:6-7
The Ox is one of the manifestations or faces of Christ mentioned here in this passage of scripture. The gospel of Matthew points to Jesus as the ox face of God, Luke is the human face, and John is the face of the eagle.
A lot of prophetic pictures and art are presented with three of these faces- except for the Ox. Why? Because the Ox is a picture of servant-hood, hard work and diligence. We don't like the work associated with the Ox anointing, but God knows that this is such a necessary component of building, and he entrusted it to the apostle. Is it only for the apostle? No it is not, but apostle's have a grace to work, plow and build more than the normal person in God's kingdom, so they operate in it as a lifestyle. Not everyone can carry such a yoke on their shoulders long term, but God gave the apostle a strength and a grace to shoulder such loads. As I was sensing all of this with the Lord, I sensed his desire to honor them in the earth. We often speak of Jesus as the Great Shepherd, and He indeed is. I love this depiction of Jesus as One who watches over us, guarding us and protecting us from harm and injury. But Jesus was also the greatest apostle, and we so need this aspect of him in the earth again on a larger scale. And that is what I want to share with you today. I sense the restoration of this office coming to regions on a greater scale,teaming up with prophets to build and expand the kingdom for such a time as this. I sensed from Father God that a regional anointing was coming upon the office of Apostle and Prophet to work together along with the office of the Evangelist. I sensed it on a global scale.God the Father loved the world so much that he sent us the greatest Apostle, Jesus Christ, and he is once again gathering, appointing, commissioning and sending his apostles, to establish his kingdom in the regions of the earth.
The apostle has the rank and jurisdiction in the spirit to overthrow principalities and territorial spirits that have ruled regions for decades, and for centuries in some cases. The fear of the Lord, signs, wonders and miracles are all manifestations that exist in apostolic work. Multiplication, increase and a gathering of souls is all apart of this joint labor between,the apostle, prophet and evangelist. It's a 3 corded strand of God's grace that is not easily broken.
The Apostle is the sign that points to the greater miracles and works of Jesus. It is the sign of a New Testament church and the reformation that is taking place as God assembles the picture and face of Jesus again in the Lion (Evangelist), Ox (Apostle) and Eagle (Prophet). It was the Acts of the Apostles where God demonstrated his Spirit, power, and mighty works. Without the Apostle Peter, Paul, James or John we would not know of such acts, along with many prophets and evangelists.
For some of you reading this you may think they are already on the scene moving in signs and wonders, and they are no doubt. But I sense a greater sending to the apostle, prophet and evangelist in the days ahead. This will be common again not the exception.
