Billy Graham’s Mantle Falls on Prisons Worldwide

prison3A Word by Bill Yount

I heard the Father saying, “I am honoring the four inmates who built the casket for My chosen servant, Billy Graham.  Their names burned into the pine plywood casket represent a list of names without number that will be recorded in My Lamb’s book of Life as Billy Graham’s mantle falls on prisoners world wide, including those held captive in spiritual prisons.  I’ve found Me a people who have lost everything, with nothing left to lose. I will get great glory out of these, for they will have all of Me. I have hung the earth upon nothing and I will use nothing again for My glory.”

“Turn you to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope;even today do I declare that I will render double to you.” Zechariah 9:12 (KJV)

Many who have been kept by the darkest bondage will now become the greatest evangelists of our day.”

I believe this is the fruition of a vision the Lord gave me in 1997. Whether you are inside a physical prison or a spiritual one makes no difference to the Lord.
‘God’s Treasures Locked Up Behind Bars and Razor Wire’

It was late and I was tired, wanting to go to sleep, but God wanted to talk. It was about midnight, but it dawned on me that God does not sleep. His question made me restless. “Bill, where on earth does man keep his most priceless treasures and valuables?”

I said, “Lord, usually these treasures like gold, silver, diamonds and precious jewels are kept locked up somewhere out of sight with usually guards and security to keep them under lock and key.”

God spoke. “Like man, My most valuable treasures on earth are also locked up.”

Out from These Walls Will Come Forth an Army

I then saw Jesus standing in front of seemingly thousands of prisons and jails. The Lord said, “These have almost been destroyed by the enemy, but these ones have the greatest potential to be used and to bring forth glory to my name. Tell My people, I am going this hour to the prisons to activate the gifts and callings that lie dormant in these lives that were given before the foundation of the earth. Out from these walls will come forth an army of spiritual giants. They will have power to literally kick down the gates of hell and overcome satanic powers that are holding many of My own people bound in My own house.”

Forgotten Vessels Must Be Restored

Tell my people that great treasure is behind these walls in these forgotten vessels. My people must come forth and touch these ones, for a mighty anointing will be unleashed upon these for future victory in My Kingdom. “They must be restored.” I then saw the Lord step up to the prison doors with a key. One key fit every lock, and the gates began to open. I then heard and saw great explosions which sounded like dynamite going off behind the walls. It sounded like all-out spiritual warfare. Jesus turned and said, “Tell My people to go in now and pick up the spoil and rescue these.” Jesus then began walking in and touching inmates who were thronging Him. Many who were touched instantly had a golden glow come over them.

God spoke to me, “There’s the gold!” Others had a silver glow around them. God said, “There’s the silver!”

‘Now Go and Pull Down Those Strongholds’

As if in slow motion, these people began to grow into what appeared to be giant knights in armor-like warriors. They had on the entire armor of God, and every piece was solid and pure gold, even golden shields. When I saw the golden shields, I heard the Lord say to these warriors: “Now go and take what Satan has taught you and use it all against him. Go and pull down the strongholds coming against My church.”

These spiritual giants then started stepping over the prison walls with no one to resist them, and they went immediately to the front line of the battle with the enemy. I saw them walk right past the church as big-name ministers known for their power with God were surpassed by these unknown warriors like David going after Goliath. They crossed the enemy’s line and started delivering many of God’s people from the clutches of Satan while demons trembled and fled out of sight at their presence.

Who Are These People?

​No one, not even the church, seemed to know who these spiritual giants were or where they came from. All you could see was the armor, the golden armor of God, from head to foot, and the shields of gold were there. The shields were restored to God’s house, and there was great victory and rejoicing.

I also saw silver, precious treasures and vessels being brought in. Beneath the gold and silver were the people nobody knew: rejects of society, street people, the outcasts, the poor and the despised. These were the treasures that were missing from God’s house.

In closing, the Lord said, “If my people want to know where they are needed, tell them they are needed in the streets, the hospitals, the missions and prisons. When they come there, they will find Me and the next move of my spirit. and they will be judged by My Word in Matthew 25:42-43: “For I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, I was naked and you did not clothe Me, I was sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.”

Prisoners of God

What a Word from God! We tend to think so often of prisoners as losers and we look at their deeds and acts and judge them as less than the rest of the world and yet God sees them as valuable soldiers in His Kingdom, tried by fire and the mistakes of their past. Of course they would be the ones fit to go out and fight the devil having learned in the hardest way by the devils own tools! An amazing plan God! They can go and fight for those who the church has forgotten and would not touch and I say Amen God, thank You for calling them to the front line to win wars we can’t fight!

Sharing my heart and the heart of the Father from my Prison of Hope! Be blessed and trust God above all. ~ Charlene

The Time is NOW for Promises to Be Fulfilled! Who Said 80 is Old?

promisesfulfilledFOYeclipseJohnny Enlow, Santa Clarita, CA

“Promises Fulfilled Wins Fountain of Youth!” This remarkable headline made the news March 4th (March forth), as an 18-1 odds horse won the pre-Kentucky Derby race called, Fountain of Youth. Everything about this race is so prophetic that it just has to be noted and acted on. Remarkably for about the last 3 weeks, the Lord has been speaking to me the phrase “Fountain of Youth” and I have been planning to write on that. Then one night, I was awakened and spoken to about how God is re-energizing His more seasoned sons and daughters. Then I was awakened to the news of this under-the-radar horse race that speaks volumes.

Meanwhile March 2, the day before the race and here at our California home, we experienced our most exhilarating experience ever with rainbows and double rainbows, as we literally had rainbows from sun-up to sun-down in the most brilliant hues. One rainbow did not move for three hours and I could not stop taking pictures all day. We all knew that the rainbow speaks of His promises and we were so encouraged – but the news of Promises Fulfilled winning the horse race took it all to another level of catalytic excitement.

Good Magic was the Overwhelming Favorite

“I have your best days yet before you – if you will stay in the race.”

Part of the noteworthy story line of this race was that a horse named Good Magic was the overwhelming favorite, while Promises Fulfilled was an 18-1 underdog. Good Magic came in third, almost 5 lengths behind Promises Fulfilled and a horse named Strike Power came in second. What a story line: Promises Fulfilled beats out Good Magic and Strike Power to win the 2018 Fountain of Youth race!

“It is not by might nor by power but by My Spirit” says the Lord. If we needed to know the timing on when we should see Promises Fulfilled winning, the Lord is saying that it is 2018. Don’t worry about the odds being against you, because in 2018, 18-1 odds make you a runaway winner.

Romans is the Trainer

As part of God’s wonderful story-telling capability that always amazes me, I also took great delight in noting that a man named Dale Romans was the trainer for Promises Fulfilled. In Romans 8, it speaks of creation groaning and travailing for the sons and daughters of God to arise and shine and reveal the Kingdom. Romans 15:8 says, “Now I say that Jesus Christ has become servant to the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the PROMISES made to the fathers.”

Father God is the Promise Maker and through Jesus, He is the one that makes Promises Fulfilled. This is a message to all of us, but an additional message regarding Israel cannot be missed as the Jews in a practical way were “the circumcision”. Abraham and the patriarchs received many promises, and this passage is a primary way he was speaking into God’s specific promises to the fathers regarding Israel. As we approach Israel’s 70th birthday since resurrection from the “cemetery of nations”, we see this verse and the message of this race carrying great relevance.

In May, our president could go to Israel as the United States confirms Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal capital by opening an embassy there. It reverberates in the spirit-realm and is why the still rebellious nations of the world raised a massive protest.

The Fountain of Youth is Open

It was truthfully almost more than I could handle in a good way to see that the race won was a race called Fountain of Youth. God has been speaking to me of how Caleb regenerated through vision and faith, and saw his 85-year-old body be as strong as his 40-year-old body (Joshua 14). Caleb had the strength and courage to go to Joshua and say, “Give me my mountain,” and then asked for the toughest mountain to take. I believe that the Lord has a Fountain of Youth opened up in the spirit-realm and He is inviting all His sons and daughters to come drink. 


This Fountain of Youth carries a new living water that not only can extend life, but can extend it at a high quality level. You drink of this Fountain of Youth when you buy into God’s present day narrative of this being Kingdom Age advancement time, as opposed to buying into the tired and worn out narrative of “we are just hanging on until Jesus rescues us.”

Promises Fulfilled doesn’t win by sitting in the stands speculating on when its all going to end. Promises Fulfilled wins by running his race. Promises Fulfilled doesn’t win by assuming that the enemy has all the Magic and all the Power, and therefore makes no sense even getting in the race. If you keep reading all the conspiracy theories out there, you won’t even run. Promises Fulfilled, however, wins by being trained by the prophetic declarations of Romans and then expecting to be a part of those declarations.

Who Said 80 is Old?

older saints go

I was reading this recently about Marilyn Hickey and that at age 86, she has been having the most remarkable meetings in Pakistan. In her last set of meetings, she spoke to over 1 million and she saw thousands and thousands of miracles as she taught about a relationship with Jesus. Now Pakistan is not for the faint of heart even if you’re 40, but Marilyn Hickey doing this at her age makes her truly a Wonder Woman. She is getting almost no persecution because the Muslims see her as a powerless woman. However, many Pakistanis are calling her the “Mom” of Pakistan, and she has made some great friendships even with Imam’s and other Muslim leaders. In her own words “Muslims love me.” For many, retirement would have ended over 20 years ago.

One of the worst things you can do is retire. There is no retirement for a child of the King who has any understanding of his or her call. Retirement is in Heaven and it will be unbeatable luxury, joy, presence, etc. On this side you are only to refire. When you think or speak retirement over yourself, your body picks up the cue to begin shutting down its engines. Get your Caleb-vision awakened and find your next Kingdom assignment even if it is not in your prior marketplace. When the world tosses you out as too old, God says, “I have your best days yet before you – if you will stay in the race.”

To Those Born 1929-1947 (Ages 70-89)

Father God is the Promise Maker and through Jesus, He is the one that makes Promises Fulfilled.

Before hearing about Promises Fulfilled, the Lord was speaking to me about various age groups. To those born during the Great Depression Years /World War 2 era of 1929-1947, the Lord says:

“I have yet a grace on you to release into society. Whereas you were born in the very days of lack and war, what I have for you to release is abundance and peace. If you will choose courage and faith, I yet have exciting Kingdom adventures we can experience together. When your IRAs and such might fail you, I will be your sustenance. Keep Me as your Most High Trust Account. I even have the next level of financial abundance for you and through you – if you will stay in faith. I will come alive in you and allow you to carry revival, healing and finances to this generation. I am your Fountain of Youth, drink of Me and be revived.”

To Those Born 1948-1967 (Age 50-69)

“You were born in the years of the prophetically spoken restoration of Israel and in an age of great change. Many of you I have called to be great change agents through prayer, intercession and prophetic decrees. Your days of greatest authority and greatest fulfillment are yet ahead. Do not step out of your race and do not allow your faith to slacken. I am going to allow you to be a part of releasing the greatest Kingdom shifts on earth ever. Do not get old in your mind nor in your thoughts – and keep drinking of Me, your Fountain of Youth.”

To Those Born 1968 and On (Under 50)

“You, I have wired with a passion to see your cities and nations transformed. You, I have wired with a new level of love for the unlovely. You are poised to be reformers and catalysts for the greatest era of renaissance ever. As you drink of Me, you will carry all that the previous generations have carried, but your assignment and your capacity is expanded to see Me made great in society. This is the day you live in and do not plan short-term. Think, operate and plan long-term. The best is yet to come.”

A Word for All Ages

Now some of you in these age brackets will find yourselves more identifying with a different age bracket, and that has to do with your call to assist in leading and inspiring those in that bracket. This is all just a general word designed especially to exhort the over 50 to begin drinking of the Fountain of Youth. God is going to allow us to reverse aging and going to allow us to cure sicknesses we are presently being buffeted by, but we are going to have to be intentional about drinking from Him and His narrative for today.

Also, I hear a question arise from those over 90, “So am I done?” The answer from the Lord is this, “If you can ask that question, you still have enough Caleb in you to still bear fruit. You can still kill a giant. You can still take a mountain. Drink of My Fountain of Youth and even you can see new Promises Fulfilled.

“For ALL, the time is NOW for Promises to be Fulfilled and the time is NOW to drink of Me, Your Fountain of Youth.”

Isaiah 40:31, “But they that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength; they will mount up with wings as eagles; they will run and not be weary, and they will walk and not faint.”

Psalm 87:7, “Both the singers and the players on instruments say, ALL my FOUNTAINS are in YOU.”

I love this word. It claims all of us no matter what our age is. We all have a job working for God! No retirement! I have always felt I would never retire as I love working and being busy and I know when you retire your body seems to give up! So I say to God, “Bring it ON!!

Our Purpose Birthed Through Our Identity

365 Prophetic 49How often do we hijack our purpose with instant gratification and the desire to bypass the process?
By Anne Marie Molster & Amie Rogers

A truth we need to understand as we begin to step forward with His lead is that even though miracles can seem to manifest suddenly, God’s “suddenlies” are usually backed by process.

Your process won’t keep you “stuck” or “delayed” when you simply embrace it. The Lord promises He WILL move you when you are ready! Many of us become fearful because of the brokenness we have experienced. What God wants us to understand is that our cracks are what He shines through. What we must come to realize is that it is possible for us to be broken, but no longer wounded. Our process is often prolonged when He wants to do a deep work within us; cleaning out any areas that may cause us to wound others while we are still experiencing pain ourselves. Once He completely heals our wounds, He will then empower us to go out.

Our purpose is then to share the history of the process in which God has lead us to victory over our circumstances. “His story” manifests through our sharing and our testimonies. Our testimony then becomes someone else’s prophetic word and an encouragement that leads them to their ultimate victory and purpose in Him.

“Consider is pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, BECAUSE YOU KNOW that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be MATURE and COMPLETE, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4 (NIV, emphasis added)

 The story of Lazarus, his illness, his death and resurrection is a great comparison to our lives and this very process. When we think about it, we are all sick and dying. Just as Jesus came and spoke life into Lazarus and raised him from the dead, He speaks life into each of us every day. A new life in Him raises us up from the depths of darkness where we once lay. Lazarus walked out of the dark tomb in his smelly grave clothes and he immediately took them off. Our process is the same, as we simply need to shed off the grave clothes we once wore. Shedding off our shame, addictions and pain from the past that prohibits us from stepping into where we’re called. Lazarus didn’t waste a minute after he was given new life; he shed off what he no longer needed and what would only remind him of the suffering that caused him death. We are each given new life just as Lazarus was; seeing the glory of God manifest in it, when we just believe!

“Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believed?”” John 11:40 GNB

This new life empowers us to go; reflecting the new life Jesus has given us! Some will be called to the masses; yet we are ALL called to find the one!

“…will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?…” Matthew 18:12-14 (NIV)

This scripture gives us an understanding that no matter how large or small our ministry is, our purpose is great! Some may speak to large crowds and to many over a lifetime, however not all of us have been given that same calling. Sharing with the one person we are lead to is just as important; leading them into a relationship with the Lord and ultimately into the Kingdom of God.

“The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:4 (NIV)

We must be willing to step out into the unknown, under His promptings and instruction and watch Heaven manifest in our lives. We cannot depend on others as we do this, we must be dependent upon Heaven!! Our Heavenly Inheritance will manifest out of dreams, visions and mandates from The Throne and Treasuries of Heaven; NOT of this world!

“…He always lives to intercede for them…” Hebrews 7:25 (NIV)

Remember, Kingdom Life is NOT Earthly life!! Our authority comes from Heaven and manifests in our service. If you want power and authority over many, you have to be rid of the desire of power; there is no room for pride. In your service, you need to be just as eager and joyful to scrub a bathroom, as you are to stand on a stage! Heaven measures our service based on the attitude of our hearts, not the work of our hands.

As we step out, we need to be sure we are walking in our own shoes; in the identity given to us. Our purpose is unique to our gifting and our own personality traits. Imitation may be the best form of a compliment, but imitating another’s form of ministry is not what God has intended for us. He designed us for His “one of a kind” purpose and our own personal destiny in Him. Our unique circumstances allow us to be passionate in the areas that He wants to use us in. However, we must be sure to remember that our circumstances are not our identity. Our identity is birthed as we conquer our circumstances and become victorious in Him!

“…and ask the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, to give you the Spirit, who will make you wise and reveal God to you, so that you will know him. I ask that your minds may be opened to see his light, so that you will know what is the hope to which he has called you, how rich are the wonderful blessings he promises his people, and how very great is his power at work in us who believe. This power working in us is the same as the mighty strength” Ephesians 1:17-19 (GNB)

 The Lord shared the following thoughts in a recent word.

“I want my children to hear of My love for their uniqueness. I will not honor imitations. I want them to step forward in what I created them and purposed them for – not into the assignment of another. That job is taken. Look within, listen to the desires of your heart, not to anyone else’s desire for you. Your next step can then be made with ease. There is a beat that you will begin to march to, a rhythm that will allow you to flow in your given assignment.”

We must believe in all that He has spoken through the ages and how His word applies to our walks today. We must listen to Him as we tune our hearts to His voice and hear what he is speaking to us now.

“I am healing hearts right now! May your hope NEVER be hindered by disappointment ever again!

All the tears you’ve cried were not wasted; they were seeds in The Kingdom! Acceleration is hitting and you will be harvesting each of those tears; returning as blessing.

Strongholds and blockages are being removed! The Courts of Heaven have heard your cries. ALL the word curses and blockages that have held you up and held you back have been declared NULL & VOID!

After standing strong in her faith through many seasons that could have easily defeated her, her passion is to give hope to others by showing God’s deep compassion for His children while instilling the belief that they can do anything through Christ who strengthens them. She prays that they will find great faith in what is unseen, rather than what is seen in the natural. Through her testimony and the many signs and wonders that Anne Marie has experienced, she wants others to see God as their Father in Heaven who is constantly working on their behalf, working all things for the good of those who love Him.

Amie Rogers is a lover of Jesus Christ, a wife and mother of four who operates in the gift of the prophetic, processing life through her writing. Having lived through many triumphs and tragedies she has been gifted with plenty of humility and some wisdom. Amie has been moved to share her journey with absolute transparency. She is compelled to show others the redemptive, restorative and healing power of Jesus through encouragement, prophetic words and His healing touch. Her mission is to speak His Life & His Love, inviting others in to hear the Lord’s heartbeat for them.

Together, Anne Marie and Amie have started a ministry based on raw & real life conversations with Biblical perspectives.


A good word that I appreciate hearing as it speaks to where I am. I am so impressed with the way God is speaking to us on a personal level in areas that so many are going through. That to me shows how big God is and how much He loves each of us and is aware of right where we are and what we need to hear to continue the changing and healing going on in us. Something about this word really spoke to me and when you have even a small view of the glory, love, majesty and care God has for us you can’t help but desire to bend your knee to Him and hold the sword of His Word high!

Aim Your Prayers, Prophecies and Praises at the Bowls in Heaven – They Are Tipping!

arrows of fire to the bowlLord, may our praises and prophecies be like ARROWS OF FIRE that release GLORY into the earth!

Larry Sparks, West Palm Beach, FL

I prophesy that we are in a season where the bowls in Heaven are ready to tip! Yes, we are at a critical and exciting tipping point!

“Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.” (Revelation 5:8)

In the prophetic language of Revelation 5:8, we are given a stunning glimpse of the atmosphere of Heaven. It appears that in the heavenly realm, there are golden bowls full of incense which “are the prayers of the saints.” Not the saints of just one generation. Not just the saints who are presently on the earth today. Certainly not only the saints of Bible times, yesteryear’s and antiquity.

There are too many unfulfilled prophetic words floating around because we do not respond to them with an appropriate urgency.”

These are the prayers of the saints, the redeemed Ekkelsia, throughout history. I can’t begin to imagine the thunder of authority, power and desperation being echoed in this chorus of prayer!

A Convergence of Prayer and Praise

Now, imagine the prayers and praises of the past twenty years coming into divine alignment and synergy with well, everything! 1) The prayers of every single revivalist, reformer, and awakener throughout history. 2) The prayers of the Moravian community. 3) The prayers of the martyrs. 4) The prayers of the healing evangelists. 5) The prayers of Billy Graham. 6) The prayers of family members, friends, and clergy who paid a price to shape history. 7) The prayers of the great Cloud of Witnesses. 8) The prayers of Old Testament forerunners and New Testament saints. 9) Above all, the prayers and intercession of Jesus, the Mediator, Himself!

I sense something unique about the prayers and praises of the last 20 years coming into a divine synergy with the prayers and praises of all who came before and have gone on to glory.

“Why the last 20 years, Lord? What’s key about that time frame?” I asked. I began to sense that over the last 20 years we have witnessed an unusual, supernatural acceleration in prayer throughout the earth. It all started from the great revivals of the 1990s (more specifically), to the establishing of 24-7 prayer houses, with the International House of Prayer being a key catalyst in launching this movement.

I believe the prayers of the last 20 years coming into alignment with the intercessory cries throughout Church history are READY to “tip the bowls of Heaven over!” “Take aim,” says the LORD. “Take aim, because it’s time to tip!”

In this season, the Lord is calling us to pray prayers and sing songs that don’t simply fill up the bowls – they TIP them over!

Songwriters and Psalmists – Get Ready!

Songs have filled bowls with prayers. There is something significant about the last 20 years of songs birthed through the modern worship movement. I believe the lyrics released during this period have been filling those bowls in a powerful way. Songwriters and psalmists were given songs that put prayers on the lips of God’s people, and as those songs have been sung across the earth, incense has been rising. Bowls have been filling up with intercession. Now, I sense the Lord is releasing a prophetic BREAKER anointing that will TIP OVER what has FILLED UP!

I believe God is raising up songs in this season that are not meant to simply fill bowls – they are meant to TIP BOWLS OVER. They carry the spirit of breakthrough upon them announcing, declaring and decreeing: “We’re ready. Come, Holy Spirit!”

Christy Johnston, a prophetic voice from Australia, shared the following in response to this prophetic word: “When I read what you wrote about ‘Take Aim‘, I saw the prayers and praises of the saints being released like arrows of fire into the glory bowls and pushing the glory into overflow onto the earth.”

Refuse to Allow the Enemy’s Condemnation or Words of Accusation to Take Root in You


By Angela Stolba

I felt to release a short word of encouragement from Papa’s heart to those who are currently feeling battle weary. I believe the Lord is saying, “My Bride, you are lovely to Me, even in your weakness. I am undone by just one glance from your eye” (Song of Songs 4:9). Refuse to allow the enemy’s condemnation or words of accusation to take root in you. Rather, gird yourself with My truth, for My strength is made perfect even in your weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).

“Lean in close to My heart and hear the love song I’m singing over you today:

The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17).

 “Come rest in and be refreshed by My presence. Cease your worrying and striving, and let those burdens fall to the wayside. Have I not said in My Word that I will contend with that which contends with you? For I am your high tower; I am your shield and your safety. (Isaiah 49:25)

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold” (Psalm 18:2).

“Nothing, by any means, shall harm you (Luke 10:19). Enter into My rest today and be confident that I am working all things together for your good” (Romans 8:28).”

“Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked” (Proverbs 3:25).

Angie Stolba has a heart to see people walking in compete freedom and restoration. She shares her testimony at conferences and women’s events. Angie enjoys co-laboring with her husband, Jeff, in ministry, as well as pouring into their three daughters. Angie has a genuine passion for God’s Word and intercessory prayer. She is the author of the book, Dealing With the Root of Rejection.

A Season Or A Stronghold?

pulling down strongholds

A Word From Thomas Griffin

I hope you read this until the end because there is a key to unlocking the harvest you’ve already sown into; a key that released abundance in my own life. It only takes one key to open a door, or start an engine, but it takes the right one, so I hope you get all that this email has to offer by reading it through to the end.

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.”

Is there a fortress surrounding your fruit? Recently, I angered some people and I didn’t mean to. The last few times I’ve spoke of all the Lord is doing in our finances, it really burned some people. Sometimes the Lord does things so good, so big, that you just have to share!

I was hurt by the emails that were sent and for the first time since writing you all, I felt the sting of being so transparent with others. I prayed over this. The Lord reminded me of a song based on Psalm 34, “My soul will boast in the Lord, the righteous will hear and be blessed!” and it soothed my soul. How? I figure the response that came from those whom my boasting in the Lord offended, is out of some area in their life that is sore, or sensitive from struggle.

I believe my testimony angered some because it touched an area of struggle that is causing tremendous pain in their lives and that, I understand. Finances can certainly be a pain generator if not surrendered to the Lord.

Have you ever shared a testimony with someone and it seemed to burn them? The reality is their angered response has nothing to do with you and everything to do with the current struggle in their lives. It’s discouraging to get this response, because we want you to rejoice with us in the good things He has done, but we understand not everyone will AND THAT’S OKAY. I get it. I understand why they got upset.

Sure, I could have just entered into peace about this and left it alone…but in my heart of hearts the thought of someone being in pain, in anger, in discouragement over finances moved me to share some revelation, now that I know I can bring relief, and set the captive free. It’s a revelation that has set me free from such dark places, over lack. I found out that it wasn’t just because I didn’t sow enough, or that I didn’t have enough faith that I was experiencing delay of harvest. It was something else altogether.

To those of you who are sowing and sowing and not seeing breakthrough…

Did you know there are things in your life that can hold back your harvest? We (Mandi and I) have had harvest held up for years at times because there were strongholds restricting our harvest. There were entire fortresses surrounding our harvest, keeping it just in sight, but totally out of reach. For many years, I was bound by a strong delusion that came out of my struggle and carnality; a delusion that God was withholding the harvest from me. LIES! Praise the Lord! The truth came (who is Jesus and His word) and set me free.

Encourage yourself in the Lord with this: The bible says He will withhold NO GOOD thing from us.

Psalm 84:11 says, “For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”

So what then, if not, Him? What holds back the harvest? We were sowing, claiming, expecting, hoping, trusting, and believing His promises and yet still, we did not see returns on our investments. How could this be?

I remember after taking a drive and screaming at the top of my lungs to the Lord about needing a breakthrough, that a still small voice, His still small voice, started speaking to me and leading me into truth. I parked the car and sat on a bench by the lake just a few blocks away from our home and this is what He led me to see…

He showed me that because the truth of His word says He will withhold no good thing, if something good was held up, it wasn’t from His doing. He showed me how I, in error, had accepted delays because I thought they were from the Lord and I wanted to stay submitted. He also reaffirmed to me how important it is to have His words hidden in my heart so that I would not be deceived by delusions, concluded from my Adamic (carnal) nature. Though I have been transformed in heart, I was (am) still being transformed in my mind, by the renewing of my mind through His word. Holy Spirit said that it was time to come to revelation, concluded from the impartation of the mind of Christ. Revelation from the thought factory of Holy Spirit in my being! Isn’t that a cool thought?

I asked the Lord to give me wisdom concerning harvest and sowing. Realizing that if He never fails, and something was failing, there is something other than Him that was out of order.  Now seeking truth and order, if I encounter extended delay and the Lord gives me peace about it, I trust, stand, and keep sowing. Sometimes, harvest takes time to make vessels ready to pour it out into us, and sometimes the harvest is ready and we are not.

Why keep sowing? Because there is no loss in the Lord. If I continue to sow even in seasons of appointed delay, then my harvest gathers in His storehouse awaiting a season of release in my life. The good news is … seasons change. There are NO perpetual seasons. It doesn’t stay summer forever, winter forever, or spring. After time, the season changes and we enter into harvest.

HOWEVER…if there is no peace, or the season never changes, I have to look in the God mirror and ask the Lord to reveal strongholds that are holding back the harvest. He led me to do this. I found that delay is like a fever telling you that your body is sick; that something is out of order. Think of pain. It’s not the pain that afflicts you, but it’s the pain and the location of the pain that signals where and how you are hurt. Delay is much like this. If the delay you are encountering is not a seasonal delay, then it is a symptom of something being out of order.

YES! Though God may release the harvest, there may be barriers setup between you and the fruit of your sowing. I’m not telling you what I heard. I’m telling what I’ve experienced and know.


If there be any carnality in your deeds done in faith as unto the Lord towards trusting Him to provide and proving Him in His promise, let the Lord uncover strongholds, free you, renew your mind. Repent of thinking the old way.

Consider these things when sowing, that you might do the right thing, the right way…in order and in the soundness of His principles.

Here are some examples of strongholds the Lord revealed to Mandi and I, that once dealt with released the harvest the Lord had prepared, from the seeds we sowed.

Unequally Yoked – Ah, this one got me! Sometimes we were unequally yoked with a certain pastor, a friendship, or a business partner/venture. Regardless of whom (or with whom), if unequally yoked and they have not sown like you have, they cannot participate in your harvest so therein, the Lord will await your disconnection with that relationship.

At times, this was the result of disobedience in disconnecting because we had deep soul ties. The end result is ALWAYS lack and hardening of hearts. Many of the times we held on, He had to harden hearts to get us to disconnect as He originally instructed. Get free from those things that are binding you that are not supposed to be in your life. Let the government of peace from the Lord guide you on this.

Sowing as UNTO MEN – Sometimes in ignorance and a generous heart, I gave to gain favor with men and in a lack of self-honesty, called it sowing unto God. It took the Holy Spirit to illuminate this in my life for me to turn it around. The yield is in the Lord’s hand, not in men. Yes, we pour into men as God directs, but only as it is unto God.

Note: The Bible DOES say to do good unto all men. There is nothing wrong with sowing to your brother, IN THE NAME of the Lord, towards your harvest. God will bless that, too. Give to bless, not to gain favor.

Sowing Into Our Harvest – HUGE MISCONCEPTION! I shudder at how often this is taught and how much it is robbing people. Like sowing unto men, at times we’ve sowed into gain, and not God. We should sow as a sign of trusting God with our gain… not for the sole purpose of gain. This is where MANY PEOPLE ERR. When they sow into their need, for the sake of gain, they reap little and are exhaustedly disappointed. If you struggle with this, let truth illuminate the honesty of your heart, and render self-honesty before the Lord. We repented and started sowing the right way…as unto the Lord and it changed EVERYTHING. Our giving sometimes had been about getting out of our tough financial situation, instead of a release of resource to prove our trust in the Way Maker. We now give as unto the Lord, trusting Him to bring us through tough times. And He has never failed us yet!

Sowing OUR Seed – I think the analogy of the seed as it is commonly used, can sometimes hinder the correct posture of the heart in giving. Because if heard or thought of incorrectly, we can see the seed as ours and not as it really is, from the Lord. If we perceive it to be ours, then we are sacrificing and being rewarded… it ought not to be so. Even false gods promise reward for sacrifice.

The reality is we are returning to the Lord what is ALREADY His, in trust that He is the provider and meets all of our needs according to His riches in glory. This positions Him as our all in all, and not just a rewarder of sacrifice. He provides the seed, and harvest.

Lack of Labor – In times past, after financial catastrophe, we sat hopeless, doing nothing, just awaiting a supernatural lottery. But then I read about Peter… when Jesus came to him and he hadn’t caught any fish. Jesus took what labor Peter was doing, and blessed it. He still had to stretch out his net at the command of the Lord. Some expect to win the fish lottery and have the fish fall from heaven into their boat, when what Jesus really wants is to put the super on the natural for you to receive your harvest. Simply put, don’t stop doing. Let the Lord bless the work of your hands, stir the waters and bring more than you can handle. It is a good thing for a man to enjoy the fruit of his labor. Let God increase the return on investment of your labor like He did for Peter.

Offense – Like with Cain and Abel, we sowed things to the Lord as an offering that were rejected by God, because we had offense with our brother or sister in the Lord. We expected a harvest in vain because our hearts were not in righteousness (right standing) because of being at odds with someone, or having deeply offended someone without an attempt at restitution.

Hopelessness – In a way, this is the greatest insult to the greatest God. There were times where everything crashed. I mean we lost thousands, cars, homes, and the bank account kept rolling more and more into a negative balance. When it seemed like nothing would work… we gave into the pressing. Instead of turning to the Lord and encouraging ourselves in the Lord, we gave into hopelessness. Hopelessness is doubt. It even challenges God’s provision for our lives.  It’s doubting His goodness and putting division in our hearts towards Him because He didn’t act in our timing.

The Lord was gracious and brought us through anyway, but through our children, He’s taught us how He feels when your children don’t trust in you enough to take care of them. It’s only happened a few times, but it is not a great feeling and I never ever want to make Abba feel the way that I felt. Always trust His goodness, EVEN if you cannot see His hands working on your behalf.

My friend, TO EVERYTHING, even your harvest, there is a time and a season, and we have to be submitted to that. No matter how long. The success is in the surrender, in trusting the Lord to take care of it, to prove Himself in His sowing principles, in His time, in His way.

I know that every time there was, and is a delay in harvest, it’s an opportunity to search our hearts for strongholds that might be holding back the release of the harvest we sowed for. Other times, it’s simply an opportunity to grow in faith, hope, and trust that there is nothing lost. Your provision is on the way, because you gave in faith trusting the provider. He’s a GOOD, GOOD Father.

Sometimes, there is a little more than just sowing and reaping to financial provision from the Lord. I wanted to share with you  the revelation I’ve been given and the wisdom gained that you too, can RELEASE THE HARVEST by letting the Lord root out any stronghold that might be in the way.

Encourage yourself in the Lord, letting the Lord bring increase to your joy and peace that passes understanding. Knowing always that ALL GOOD THINGS come from Him and HE will withhold no good thing from us, the Bible says. I hope this helped you in some way… I’d love to know if it did.


This word brings a lot of clarity to giving, sowing, tithing and still not getting answers or breakthroughs! There are so many thoughts on this subject and it can be hard to know if I give the rent money and trust God to pay it some other way or is it prudent to pay the rent? Just as an example. And what about those strongholds? I think all we hear being taught often is about not robbing God so we try not to but still there is no breakthrough and maybe it is our own strongholds! Many points to ponder here for sure!

Our Identity, Crowned with Glory and Honor

365 Prophetic 36crowned.with_.integrity.and_.honr_To find our true identity, we must be brought to the end of ourselves.

By Amie Rogers & Anne Marie Molster

Understanding our true identity, which comes from Christ, is a constant journey throughout this lifetime. It is also the enemy’s relentless pursuit to keep us far from finding our God-given identity. The enemy goes to great lengths to shift us into believing his many lies. He does his best to create circumstances that would further us from the truth and take us into something we would never choose for ourselves. Instead of living in the position as co-heir to The Throne and manifesting our Heavenly inheritance, we often get trapped into a false identity reflective of our shattered lives caused by childhood trauma, abuses, addictions, infidelity, broken marriages and poverty – to name a few of the enemy’s drastic tactics that ultimately cause an identity crisis in each of us.

“But God’s mercy is so abundant, and his love for us is so great, that while we were spiritually dead in our disobedience he brought us to life with Christ. It is by God’s grace that you have been saved. In our union with Christ Jesus he raised us up with him to rule with him in the heavenly world. He did this to demonstrate for all time to come the extraordinary greatness of his grace in the love he showed us in Christ Jesus. For it is by God’s grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God’s gift, so that no one can boast about it. God has made us what we are, and in our union with Christ Jesus he has created us for a life of good deeds, which he has already prepared for us to do.” Ephesians 2:4-10 GNB

To find our true identity, we must be brought to the end of ourselves. If we look at the life of Solomon in Ecclesiastes, chapters one and two, we can see that he often felt as if everything was meaningless. Even after receiving greater wisdom and knowledge from the Lord, he felt this life was a senseless pursuit. Even the power Solomon obtained through wisdom and wealth had no meaning when separated from His commitment to God. He discovered that without an intimate relationship with the Lord, he had very little purpose. Rather than “chasing the wind”, Solomon recognized that just as all good things came from God, God also needed to be the foundation of who he was and what he was to accomplish.

We can begin this journey of discovering our identity by first seeing ourselves the way Christ sees us. We must know who and whose we are in order to be all that we are created to be.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:13-16 NIV

Many of us know deep within our spiritual being that we are meant for more than what we are currently doing and pursuing. How often are we walking around being uncomfortable in our own skin because of the false beliefs we have about ourselves? Whether we have believed the lies whispered to us in our thoughts or we live in the identity of a label placed upon us by someone else, we are living in an oppressed state rather than in the fullness God intended.

Deep within us burns a passion that was ignited by the fire of God. He is fanning the flames of these fires so we are overwhelmed with a desire to be all we have been created to be. Every single person who has breath in their lungs has been given a purpose. There is not one person that is a mistake. Although some may have had parents who gave you up at birth, unable to care for you, or you have experienced abandonment issues in other areas of your life as a teen or an adult – you must know that you have a Heavenly Father that planned and purposed you for such a time as this! (Esther 4:14 AMP)

Our Creator has always wanted you and loves you more deeply than anyone could, from now through eternity. Once you know your priceless value and worth, you will begin to walk it out in the manifested presence of God.

“In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will,” Ephesians 1:11 NIV

The journey of the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land was so amazing and miraculous. (Exodus 12:31-42) Yet, their journey was long and arduous. In this story, the generation that was brought out of slavery did not get to enter into the Promised Land, it was the next generation that walked in. (Numbers 14:30) Each of our life journeys are a lot like the Israelites’ desert time. We move through our desert seasons with God’s love and grace as He transforms us, so that we are then able to walk into His Promised Land well before the future generations we are contending for.

There are things He has purposed us to do outside our desert. The desert gives way for us to place our full dependence upon God to provide for all our needs and it brings us to the end of ourselves. Each piece of us that we lay down, He replaces with His version of what He originally intended. He takes away our pride, our selfishness, our rejected and broken hearts, He heals our wounds, He places justice and forgiveness over all our wrongs and heals all our sicknesses; physical and emotional.

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9 NIV

We begin to understand our true identity when we are able to navigate this journey with spiritual discernment, much like an internal GPS. If we are pursuing anything outside of our spiritual nature in Christ, we will feel dissatisfied. There is a peace and an overwhelming joy that fills our spirit when our behavior and actions come into alignment with our identity in Him.

“So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”” 1 Peter 1:14-16 NLT

Once we begin to walk in our true identity in Christ, seeing ourselves as He sees us, we begin to carry the Lord’s presence with us. Moving in His presence will allow us to shift atmospheres with unprecedented authority and dominion over all that comes against us and all that falls behind us! As we make each step, tapping into His power deep within, the full glory of God will surround us! Ultimately enabling us to walk out the mission for which we are called; our destiny – one marked since the beginning of time with our identity in mind!

“…what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor. You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority” Psalms 8:4-6 NLT

Anne Marie Molster is a wife and mother of two daughters who shares the heart of the Lord through her prophetic writing. After standing strong in her faith through many seasons that could have easily defeated her, her passion is to give hope to others by showing God’s deep compassion for His children while instilling the belief that they can do anything through Christ who strengthens them. She prays that they will find great faith in what is unseen, rather than what is seen in the natural. Through her testimony and the many signs and wonders that Anne Marie has experienced, she wants others to see God as their Father in Heaven who is constantly working on their behalf, working all things for the good of those who love Him.

Amie Rogers is a lover of Jesus Christ, a wife and mother of four who operates in the gift of the prophetic, processing life through her writing. Having lived through many triumphs and tragedies she has been gifted with plenty of humility and some wisdom. Amie has been moved to share her journey with absolute transparency. She is compelled to show others the redemptive, restorative and healing power of Jesus through encouragement, prophetic words and His healing touch. Her mission is to speak His Life & His Love, inviting others in to hear the Lord’s heartbeat for them.

Together, Anne Marie and Amie have started a ministry based on raw & real life conversations with Biblical perspectives.


I’m telling you friends, I can’t stop reading and hearing lately. I’m at it night and day because God is revealing so much through His prophets and teachers. Things we just didn’t realize or understand. I admit that this thing about “Identity” was totally NEW to me … after many, many years as a believer. All of my life until the last 3 years. Yes that is hard to admit but there it is … sometimes I feel like I was born, saved and baptized at 16 and then like the sleeping princess until 3 years ago! I hope I’m not alone in that feeling. And I was in church all those years. Where did the church miss all of this revelation we are getting now? I know the scriptures tell us that God is going to reveal mysteries in the end times so I guess that is the answer. We read in scriptures that we are sons and daughters, a royal priesthood, while as one writer says, “we feel and act like employees.” So now God is trying to make it even more obvious to all of us who “missed” it. And as the writers here say, I have been brought to the end of myself in the last 3 years and now I’m ready to hear the truth! I am thankful that He is doing that and revealing so much now!

“I hear the Lord saying “Its time to get out of the confines of the place you have been in. The role, parameters, and expectations you and others have set that just hasn’t worked or produced fruit for you. It’s time to accept the path I have for you which lies outside of what has been done and what is deemed proper and acceptable by man and finally surrender to the calling I have placed within you”

“I have put embers in your heart, fiery embers of a movement that only exists outside of the prison of perfection and the cage of logic because you are my battering ram, my breaker, my catalyst, my pioneer. You have tried to fit within the box, within the old paradigm but I never called you to fit. I called you to model and release the new, to live beyond what is and to establish what will be”

“The moment you stop compromising to be accepted you will realize you already are. The moment you stop trying so desperately to be affirmed and loved and to find your tribe you’ll find it and you will begin to tap into the kingdom you belong to and pour out the rich resource I have made you a carrier of. Yes you will offend the norm but you will also be the answer and remedy to the cries of the hungry and longings of the fainting”

“You fear your convictions because you believe it means you have to be alone to carry them out but I haven’t called you to isolation but to rewrite the map, to mark the ground, set the tempo, and lead the way”

“Open the door today to that cave you have been hiding in and allow your heart to dream again, allow your unbridled passion and undignified adoration of me to erupt out of you again and lead you to the waters edge. In time you will look behind and see others following you into the deep waters of my Spirit, into the place where sons and daughters are revealed and my heart is known for all the world to see”

looking out over sea2

I love this word because it is so true of myself. Many of us do compromise to be accepted and then we are made to feel wrong when we move on because we just couldn’t fit. Yes there is a lot of church “hopping” but many of those people are true believers who just can’t fit in the box the church offers them. Speaking for myself it is painful to be “outside” without covering and fellowship. But a good friend of mine says, “let God be your covering and direct you to the right place.” I watch live streaming of a church that I can align with and study continually in God’s Word, write Him letters about stuff I can’t say to other believers because they don’t understand. So this word gives me hope and belief that I am heading in the right direction toward that shore and that what I feel passionately about is from God and He will guide me to others of like mind even if it means moving from where I am to another place .. literally!

God is Redefining Your Future!

Joni Ames, Rock Hill, SC

A Mighty Throng

God is calling His Psalm 68:11 great company (army) of women forth for such a time as this. “The Lord announces the Word, and women who proclaim it are a mighty throng…” (Psalm 68:11).

God is redefining your future. There’s more to life than what you’ve experienced. This time is for you. You’ve taken care of everyone else, and now it’s time to take care of you. It’s time to be equipped and activated into what you are called to – whether that means to utilize the gifts in everyday life or full-time ministry.

If you are discontent with your life, don’t let it frustrate you. If you don’t like you, change you! Only you can do it for you; you’re the boss of you. If you are a more mature aged woman, you’re in the midst of a change of life in more ways than one. You’re now going to do that which you’ve waited a lifetime to do.

An Acceleration of “Suddenlies”

I’m now in my early 60s and just graduated with a doctorate in theology last year. When I graduated high school in 1972, I wrote in my yearbook that I wanted to become a published author. I was 17. Some 46 years later, and my first book will be out this fall. A “suddenly” came for me after waiting many years for it to come to pass. We’re in a time of “suddenlies” that have taken a long time to happen. But God has prepared us for this time and placed everything in order. It is a season in which those things are finally beginning to occur.

“…So the service of the Lord was set in order. Then Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced that God had prepared the people, since the events took place so suddenly.” (2 Chronicles 29:35-36)

There’s an acceleration of the “suddenlies” in this period. Acceleration means a change in velocity which means a change in speed, direction, or both. The power of God is showing up in services in amazing ways. It’s a new day. Batons are being passed down to the next generation now as the elder mothers and fathers of the faith have been passing. Will you rise up and take yours? All we’ve been through and what’s going on is causing us to become His Bride without spot or wrinkle.

Are You Bored or Depressed? You Don’t Have to Stay There!

What is the greatest passion of your heart? Something you’d like to accomplish that you haven’t yet done?

I firmly believe that the reason some people suffer from anxiety and depression is that they are not doing what they were meant to do. Often, they’ve been so down by the cares of life and convince themselves they don’t even know what they’d want to do if they were given the freedom and finances to accomplish it. Life sometimes hands us a curve ball that we didn’t expect and sends us reeling in an unexpected and even unwanted direction. But we don’t have to stay there.

The important thing is to recognize you need to make a change. You can figure out what all that means along the way. What we don’t want to do is to keep stuffing our feelings down and ignoring the situation. When that happens, we end up miserable and make everyone around us miserable as well.

I encourage those I mentor to take a piece of paper and write down these things:

1. A work history resume.
2. A spiritual resume of all the ways you’ve volunteered or worked in the church.
3. A list of the things you’ve overcome in life, whether it’s smoking, a divorce, or more serious things.
4. An honest list of what you are most gifted to do. Don’t be too humble. Be real.
5. What would you honestly like to learn? This can be a musical instrument, something artistic or crafty, flying a plane, or anything you’d have to go to school or take lessons for.
6. Write a bucket list of places you want to go and things you want to do before you die. Not because you’re going to die – but because it’s time to truly live.
7. Develop a vision board or scrapbook of pictures of the items in #5 and #6. The Word tells us to, “Write the vision and make it plain so that they may run who reads it” (Habakkuk 2:2-4).

Where is Your Passion and Authority?

Whatever you have a passion for you will do well in. Just go for it. Whatever you have been through, you have authority in. Those are key clues for you regarding the areas you are called to. If you are not doing what you are passionate for you will be unhappy. Change can be difficult, but it may be very necessary in order to move forward in the area that will give your life purpose and meaning. It’s never too late. American folk artist Grandma Moses began painting as a successful artist at the age of 78. Sarah in the Bible had a baby in her 90s. You can birth that which you are called to no matter what age you are as well.

Never give up on your dreams. Never. As they say: “Where there is a will, there is a way.”

Let’s pray: Lord, thank You for the women that will read this. Help them to take hold of and run with what You’ve called them to do and to never give up. In Jesus’ name, amen.

a destiny

When I think of God redefining my future I see me with a good camera back to my passion of photography. When I was in my 20’s and 30’s I rode horses in the mountains and deserts of So California and I carried my camera all the time. It was my constant companion and I had great dreams of what I could do with all my photos, some of which were quite good. I did get some into the local newspaper and a monthly Horse 7 Riders magazine. Then everything changed and my life took a total turn around and I no longer had my much loved horses or camera. Now I take shots here and there with my iPhone which is just not the same. I am bored with just sitting in the house writing and would love to have my horses back but more than that my camera! I love writing but in the past it went along with my camera work and I’d love to have that back. So who knows what God may move us into and so glad he is including us older ladies!

Feeling Stuck? Have Hope! God is Not Done With You Yet!

discouraged3Westley Roderick, Fort Mill, SC

God is not done with you yet. He isn’t finished, He hasn’t given up, and He hasn’t stopped! Where you are right now does not dictate where you will finish. Whatever situation you are in, in this very moment, does not determine your outcome and does not determine your end result.

Everyone makes New Year’s resolutions from the couch. Eventually, you may end up in the gym. Sitting on the couch does not dictate whether or not you will lose ten pounds; it’s dictated by whether or not you put action to what you said you would do.

If there is anything about you contrary to the divine identity within you, God will perfect it through love and compassion. He will bring whatever it is about you that is not the true divine identity of a son or daughter, and He will bring it into perfection. You have to trust that you are in a process right now, and it is a lifelong process.

“I am confident that the Creator, who has begun such a great work among you, will not stop in mid-design but will keep perfecting you until the day Jesus the Anointed, our Liberating King, returns to redeem the world.” (Philippians 1:6 The Voice)

God is not done with you yet. Where you are right now does not dictate or determine where you will finish.

You are on the Potter’s wheel right now. God is not stopping on you midway through the process. He works through the impurities in the clay. He softens it, massages it, and smooths it out until it is supple like flesh once again. He takes the heart of stone and replaces it with a heart of flesh. He who has called you will walk through it with you.

“May God Himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together – spirit, soul, and body – and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If He said it, He’ll do it!” (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 MSG)

“The one who calls you by name is trustworthy and will thoroughly complete his work in you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:24 Passion Translation)

God knows you by name. You are not just a number. You are more to Him. Something happens when you hear Him speak your name, like when He tells you that He loves you. He’s got it under control.

I asked God once, “What does trust look like?” He said, “Trust is when you can take your hands off of the plow, and know that the work will still be done.” Rest and trust are synonymous. The One who calls you by name is trustworthy. He won’t forsake you, and He won’t leave you. He abides with you. He will do whatever He said that He will do, because God is not a man that He should lie.

The Gifts of God Are Without Repentance

“And when God chooses someone and graciously imparts gifts to him, they are never rescinded.” (Romans 11:29 Passion Translation)

“You see, when God gives a grace gift and issues a call to a people, He does not change His mind and take it back.” (Romans 11:29 The Voice)

God is not apologizing for gifting you, and then wanting to taking it back. He’s not going to change His mind. That’s how faithful God is.

Waiting for the Future

King David was anointed as a boy and then what happened? He had to serve his brothers and he was returned back to the fields with the sheep. How many of you know that you are called to something, but you are trying to figure out where you are at? Where you are right now does not determine where you will finish. He who will start a process in you is faithful to continue that process in you. Where you are at doesn’t determine where you will finish.

Look again at David. He became king and he messed up. He committed adultery and then murdered the husband of the woman he committed adultery with. Sitting there, Nathan confronted him. Where he stood with God at that moment (being confronted by the consequences of his sin) did not dictate where he finished. Even if you are in the worst of sin, it will not dictate where you finish. All you have to do is repent. Anytime that you are living outside of your calling, it is like being enslaved to the very thing that you are living according to at that moment.

When Your Brothers Sell You Out

You may be like Joseph in the prison, who was favored by his father and had a big dream. In his dream, his brothers were going to bow to him. The brothers got together and said, “What are we going to do to him? Should we put him in a hole or kill him?” They decided to sell him. Like I said, Joseph was favored by His father, but then was given to the Egyptians. Say what? Have you ever said, “I have this amazing call on my life, I have an anointing, and my Father favors me. But why am I here in the world?”

Egypt represents the worldly system. Many people don’t recognize that the calling and anointing on your life (the dream you’ve been having), and the reason that you have the favor from your Father – is so you can go speak to Pharaoh. He has a dream that needs to be interpreted. That’s the breakthrough and that’s the ministry that is on your life.

When Joseph was reunited with his brothers, he said, “What you intended for evil, God has turned to good” (see Genesis 50:20). We use this verse out of context a lot of times. His brothers sold him into slavery, not the devil. Listen to what God says to you when it comes to your identity. The voice of the Lord is over the sound of many waters and breaks the cedars of Lebanon. It is time to get out of where you are right now, and step into where you are supposed to be.

Australia Dream

I had a dream a few weeks ago, and in this dream I was going on a trip with some of the Fresh Fire Ministry road team. We went to the airport, boarded the plane, and I knew it would be a long flight, so I took a nap. When I woke up, in my dream, I wasn’t where I was supposed to be. I was in Australia. I didn’t know where I was supposed to be, but I knew that it was not in Australia.

When I got off the plane, I spoke with the airport staff and asked how I had gotten to Australia. They apologized and said that somehow, while I was asleep, I had shifted planes and ended up on a plane landing in Australia. We were all perplexed. I wasn’t mad or angry about the situation, but I didn’t know what to do.

There was some time before I could leave there. While in Australia, clothes and food were given to me, and people were giving me their cars, houses and money to spend! They gave me everything that I would need. There was so much grace and favor for the time that I was in Australia, even though I wasn’t supposed to be there. I was dumbfounded by these people taking care of me.

Then I got a phone call from the airline. They had my flight ready to get me to where I was originally going and they had good news for me. I was going to be sitting in business class. They were going to upgrade my status! I was excited by the news and then woke up.

The Lord spoke to me after the dream and said, “You have to be open to an alternative destination. Here’s what you do when you are stuck or in a holding pattern.”

Getting “Unstuck” Out of a Holding Pattern

  1. Stay in Your Assigned Seat

Staying in your assigned seat is for your protection. They are going to look for you there. So, don’t panic and scramble.

  1. Fasten or Secure Your Seat Belt
You have to trust that you are in a process right now, and it is a lifelong process.

Make sure that you are secure where you are seated. This has more to do with your identity than feeling safe. Being okay and comfortable with where you are, with what you’re doing, and with what is going on in your life is far more important than you can imagine or realize. It’s really pertinent to your confidence. It’s becoming secure with who God has called you to be.

  1. Listen for the Pilot

It does no good to bicker, whine and complain if you can’t hear the pilot. The pilot knows what is going on. The pilot symbolizes your spiritual leaders and Jesus. He is going to make announcements about where to go, who to be, and what’s going on. Listen for the pilot.

  1. Be Open to an Alternative Destination

Be willing to land in a different airport, land or city. In Habakkuk, it says to make the vision simple and plain. However, we often make it complicated and convoluted, with a lot of details that are probably from our own wants and desires. When you make it simple, you have a framework and it is adjustable. When it’s simple and allows for an alternative destination, it doesn’t feel like a violent shift. It’s like changing the tail fin to go to a different place.

Let’s look at Joseph again. He had a dream, but ended up at a completely different place than where he thought that he would be. But just like Joseph, in the alternative destination, you will find grace and favor. And when you do whatever is needed in that alternative destination, you will return upgraded in status.

Jesus was put into the earth to die on the Cross after being baptized, and then driven out into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit. Yet, Jesus returned upgraded in status. He returned in the power of the Holy Spirit. When you allow yourself to be put into that alternative destination, there is favor, provision, and safety and grace for where you are and where you are going.

Stuck in a Whale of a Place

Many of us are in an alternative destination right now. We are trying to figure out where it is we are supposed to be and where we are to go. But where you are looks different than where you know you’re supposed to be, what you’re supposed to be doing, and what you’re supposed to be going towards. In Scripture, we know someone else who was like that—Jonah.

Jonah was supposed to go somewhere and deliver a message, but he didn’t want to. He ended up in an alternative destination. He found himself in the belly of a whale (Jonah 2:1-10). Being delivered from where you are at is as simple as doing what you were originally asked to do.

If you are stuck right now and feel like you are going through Hell, the key to your breakthrough is repentance, living the life that you were meant to live, and doing unto the Lord what you are supposed to be doing.

God is not done with you yet. Where you are right now does not dictate or determine where you will finish. If there is anything about you that is contrary to the divine identity within you, God will bring it into perfection through and by His love.

This Generation

In this generation, there was a preparation time that has had to take place, growing in maturation in the things of the spirit and in the natural. They are like the young David, anointed to be king, but right back to the fields taking care of sheep. This generation was anointed and called to greatness before its time and we’ve been in the fields, tending sheep, and fighting off the bears and the lions. But God says, “If you cry out to Me and return to who it is that you are supposed to be and repent, you will find grace, favor, safety and provision for where you are right now and where you will be going.”

The Lord spoke to Ezekiel saying, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And Ezekiel responded, “God, only You know.” So God said again, “Son of man, can these bones live?” Ezekiel responded again and said, “Only You know, Lord.” God spoke to Ezekiel, and said, “Son of man, prophesy to these ruins. Prophesy to these dry bones, that they shall have breath, and that they shall have life once again” (see Ezekiel 37:3-14)

I tell you on behalf of the Lord: it is time to speak to your ruins! It is time to speak to the dry bones that are in the valley of your soul and life. Prophesy that they shall live again and that the breath of the Lord shall be upon them. It is time to prophesy that muscle, sinew, tissue and organs shall be upon them again, and that they shall breathe, once again.

Live! Live the life that you were meant to live. Live to the high calling that’s been placed upon you, and live according to the destiny that is on your life today.

felling stuck and passed by

Another good word I needed to read! How many of us feel in the same place as being discussed with this post? Feel like everyone is passing you by and you are just stuck to the same life, same place? I was particularly interested with the part about: Getting “Unstuck” Out of a Holding Pattern … “Stay in Your Assigned Seat.” I think that is where I am right now and that was a good few words for me. I feel restless and stuck in a holding pattern in my own home and town. I want to just get in my car and drive somewhere, anywhere to be moving and doing something new and productive. I want to move but then on the other hand it overwhelms me to think of trying to pack up and move and I like my house so what if I don’t like wherever I go. I stress over something I don’t even know about! So it struck a cord to “stay in your assigned seat and stop complaining.” I guess I have to calm down, relax and wait for directions, a flight pattern from God. He is sure talking to us about our circumstances now and it is necessary to listen so we don’t end up at the wrong airport!
