5778: The Mandate of Heaven and the Sounding of the Trumpets


Phyllis Ford, Arlington, TX

This particular time during the Hebrew calendar carries as many names as it does meanings. It is important to be able to glean from the fields of understanding concerning this hour. So you will hear The Feast of Trumpets, The Head of the Year, or Rosh Hashanah. My emphasis on this historic time marker of 5778 this year will be remembered by the “sounding of the TRUMPETS”.

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.'” Leviticus 23:23-25

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Make two silver trumpets for yourself; you shall make them of hammered work; you shall use them for calling the congregation and for directing the movement of the camps.” Numbers 10:1-2

We will see a fearless group of Millennials who will face the enemy with a sling shot of promise and five smooth stones of glory.

Looking into this coming 5778 with eyes of understanding, I see a release of God’s trumpets vocally, spiritually, and radically. From the sounding of the shofar, to a clarion call by the literal voice of many waters, the Lord God Most High is speaking to the people. For His sound will be echoing throughout the land.

All will hear and many will come out from wherever they are and respond to its sound. The Lord will speak through His prophets and through signs, wonders and miracles. He will speak through warnings and correction. He will sound through the repentant cries of His intercessors. Even His shed Blood will sound a cry out with a redemptive plan for His people.

Sounding the Alarm, Releasing the Mandates

These sounds will come and quake through the land—shaking old paradigms of thinking that have bound a people. Great change will come about in the land because the Lord Himself has spoken it.

Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it? Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets. Amos 3:6-7 (KJV)

When the ram’s horn blows a warning, shouldn’t the people be alarmed? Does disaster come to a city, unless the Lord has planned it? Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until He reveals His plans to His servants the prophets. Amos 3:6-7 (NLT)

We are in the season where the sounding of the alarm and the releasing of the mandates of Heaven will be revealed. It will shape the destiny of nations who have yet to be changed by the seriousness of the time that has already occurred. It will also carry an impetus by which a people shall ARISE in this hour to bring forth the necessary answers that will be needed to live out that mandate.

We have found that despite God’s Word, teaching and heart, many have decided to live out their desires over God’s desires. As a result, the enemy of their souls has risen up to overtake them, their land and even hold them captive. However, we can rejoice in the fact that throughout His Word we will see the Lord raise up a people and a standard through His servants of apostles, prophets, and priesthood to begin to quell and alleviate the evil work and re-establish the Kingdom of Heaven in the region.

We are about to witness some of these things in ways that will amaze us. In the last 3-4 months the Lord began showing me, through visitations, information concerning these trumpet sounds. In these encounters, the sounds began low and almost inaudible, then grew to a high pitched sound of awakening. I could not even articulate what I saw nor can I fully explain what I was seeing. So I will attempt to extract a few pages from the volumes of what I began to see as it was revealed to me.

August 21 and Varying levels of Darkness and Light

When I was in prayer concerning the solar eclipse last month, as the brilliance of the light pierced throughout the corners of the darkness, the Lord begin to show me varying levels of light being covered by darkness. He showed me how we will be able to navigate and discern in the darkness by what we learned in the light of His glorious presence, and as we come through the darkness a greater light be would be unveiled afterward. Only the light can impart to us the ability to discern and perceive things done in the dark.

I saw a series of visions of how, through Scripture, light has been revealed, and how the disciples navigated through the dark nights and storms that the Lord guided them through. We will see a deep movement of the Lord filled with revelation that will navigate us through the seven years to come. As the Messiah co-navigates us, our lives will take on a new course of dominion that we will possess in new revelatory ways. We will witness great prophetic visuals just like the eclipse itself, while making it over to the new land of understanding the ways of the Lord.

“Walking in the light” in our relationship with Him will help us navigate through some of the greatest storms approaching. This light will bring forth order, divine alignment, and a reordering of understanding His ways. He began to show me the importance in guarding our hearts and learning how to walk in temperance, so that our lack of self-control and emotions don’t distract us, leaving us vulnerable to serious attacks from the enemy (read Proverbs 25:28). I began to see that “division” was an outward attack of darkness to keep us in confusion and to cause us to lose time while being directed in the light.

Spiritual Birthing

It is the decree of Heaven that we “walk in a new way” as we step over into 5778. We will shed carnality and the lies of error and begin to walk in the truth of His Word. We will become the sons of God upon this earth that are being birthed in this hour. Skillful mid-wives prevailing in intercessory prayer will assist in this process. The birthing of a changed people of purpose will emerge in this time, ready to advance in Kingdom building.

As I was in flight, in one of my visitations, I saw a great light in a vision coming from the sun, but on the earth the darkness was still present. The Lord spoke and said, “Even though darkness is upon the earth, the light is emerging as the sons are being birthed.” In the heavens, we entered a new day, but upon the earth it was just beginning to catch up with what was going on in the heavens.

It is in the cries of “prayers of repentance” and the “travailing in birth” that our lives transition from carnality into maturity in the image of Jesus Christ as growth in the individual occurs. The Lord, in His great wisdom, has placed answers in us to situations and dilemmas that will occur. We will be a part of the fail-safe system that will be the building and triumphing of a glorious work. It is important to see that this occurs as part of an on-going process as the current foundations are shaking.

So, we begin to see that the perfecting process of 5777 is an on-going one, and it will lay the groundwork for greater things to be done in the coming years leading up to 5779 and even going into 5780. The sons of God that were spoken of in John chapter 1 are moving forward. What we will see looks a lot like Ezekiel Chapter 1 and 10, which show us the image of God Himself being formed in our lives in ways we will understand.

These sounds will come and quake through the land. Shaking through old paradigms of thinking that had bound a people.

A Daniel Company – HUBS and Millennials

The first thing I need to do is briefly define a HUB. A HUB is a cluster of ministries that come together to better fulfill Kingdom directives. Two key phrases are “Yoked” and “Spiritual Synergy.” In this hour, there will be a raising up of a Daniel company that will move forth as the Lord’s army.

It was being revealed to Daniel that he was in the season of the words of Jeremiah (70 weeks) when he positioned himself in prayer and fasting. He fasted so that He might be able to discern what the Lord was bringing forth in that time (see Daniel 9:2-3, Jeremiah 29:10). That positioning prepared and released strategies of the Lord and His angelic host who were contending in the heavenly realm.

We have approached an hour where intercessory HUBS will not only be formed but work together to work as a NET to usher in the harvest of souls coming into the Kingdom. There will be a convergence of man (with angelic assistance) who will walk as one in passionate prayers of repentance to release a sound. The trumpet will sound to release Anna’s, Esther’s, and Deborah’s to pray. There will also be an apostolic and prophetic troop of Issachar people to guide them through the coming years.

We will see a fearless group of Millennials who will face the enemy with a sling shot of promise and five smooth stones of glory. We will also see a gathering of nations of people who will be willing to prevail in prayer.

Let me say this: there are very few who know the nature of the enemy within the Church and the enemy outside the Church, and the demonic nature of the two. There will be those who will carry the anointing of prayer like the intercessor Rees Howells that will track, trace, and destroy enemy strongholds.

Prayer, Intercession and Watchmen on the Wall

One of the most powerful strategies in this hour is walking in the power of prayer and the birthing of repentance. Understanding this strategy will quell and avert much danger. Prayers, intercession, and the cries of repentance for the sins of our nations will produce strategies that reverse and lend strength in times when the enemy’s attacks seem the strongest. The strongest trumpet will come from the captain of the Lord of Hosts carrying strong angelic help from every direction.

By decree and declaration being laid upon the directives of God’s Word, we will advance. We will no longer just defensively go through our days, but will advance by Kingdom implementation of God’s decrees. We will know who we are and what we possess, as well as understand what we should be doing, so we don’t just approach the days and hope “everything works well,” but we will begin to embrace our days making necessary adjustments along the way. We will set things in order that were revealed to us in prayer and utilize the tools that we’ve been equipped with to accomplish effective stewardship.

Views from the Field

In my time before the Lord in prayer concerning Shavuot, I received several visitations where I literally appeared in a field. The Lord said the field represented the Body of Christ and we’re the first-fruits of that harvest season. He unveiled that we were the Body of Christ transitioning into the Bride of Christ. He also expressed that He is taking us through the winnowing process by fire baptism and removing the chaff off of our lives so that we can go out and gather the harvest (see Matthew 3:11-12). He spoke of how we are a type of Ruth who, by our obedience to His desires, will glean in the fields, only to become the owner of the fields where we worked. We are such a people.

More and more revelation began to unfold as He guided me through the field, instructing me on how we can learn from the Word of God in the field. He walked me through the field and explained that this is the season to bring souls into the Kingdom. He unveiled how, in this hour of our lives, fulfilling our purpose will bring healing and wholeness to a people broken by the circumstances of the field. The harvest has come and the fields are white unto harvest. In the month of Elul, the Lord is in the field and so are we.

As we approach 5778 in Tishrei, we hear the trumpets sounding in the distance, guiding us.

I have noted that the prophetic words from God through his prophets are getting more serious, stronger and more precise for what is coming and what God expects from us, as well as what He is equipping us with. These are truly exciting times for those aligned with God and His remnant willing to take stands and be heard without fear or backing down. Arise warriors with pens and songs! God is opening the social media and television for us who are willing and equipped to reach the world for this last hour! This is our mission field and God has equipped and trained each one of us for what we are to do!  I laugh at my own naivety over the years as I boasted I would never be a missionary, it  was not my calling … yet I find myself on Facebook and here every day putting out God’s word to people around the world. It is our chance, our privilege to reach out to the world through social media and blog platforms, on radio and TV to reach the lost and hurting! Thank God for the chance, young and old alike can join this battle while sitting in your home with your computer!

As 5778 Begins Transition from Trials into Blessings this Month

David Herzog

This month is the beginning of HUGE shifts that are about to happen in your life. How you make this transition right now will determine if you go through this season with great blessing and promotion, or loss and having to go around the mountain one more time.

We have just come out of the month of Av on the Hebrew calendar. This is a testing month as it always has been since Israel was in the wilderness. Between now and the fall feasts there are things to watch out for.

Many have been in the testing time as their pressures increase and God starts to deal with emotions, thoughts, and hurts. The warfare often increases on multiple levels. How you pass this testing time determines if your new season will be that of your “Promised Land” or another season in the desert.

“Dear friends don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if some strange thing were happening to you.” 1 Peter 4:12

Start to enter into the major shift and glory visitation during this prophetic Biblical season so God can transition you with new favor for the coming year for awakening in your life, America and the nations.

Many are suddenly alarmed at the surprise trials, betrayals, testings and attacks that seem to come in this season. Know that you are not alone. The enemy often uses psychological and emotional warfare to get you into bitterness, anger, fear and unforgiveness, etc. He knows that if He can get you in the flesh you can hinder your destiny for yet another season.

Once you realize this is only a test then it’s much easier to go through it. Embrace the Cross. This means, embrace the testing, love people, forgive those who betray you, repent if you have wronged others or held grudges and out of hurt, cut off from people. Stay in the spirit, keep your joy, stay in the Word and keep declaring the goodness of God.

When You Have Done All, Stand

Then when you have done all to stand, just stand. When the dust settles you will be in a new place in many areas of your life. If you give in to the pressures and do things in the flesh, you end up going around the same mountain and trials just with a different set of people and situations.

Getting out of Egypt is not the same as getting Egypt out of you. Moses missed out on entering the Promised Land due to unresolved anger. We can’t bring the same old issues into the new. To get the victor’s crown in this race we are all running we have to let them go and “…lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us…” (Hebrews 12:1).

We have heard so many stories recently from pastors and leaders, of people who suddenly just quit their job or positions the same day with no warning or notice, leaving people in a mess. Unfortunately, this allows the enemy to steal their blessing by default. This is a huge red flag indicating people are thinking more about self and did not pass the testings and pressures God’s way. Instead, they just bailed off their “cross” and season of testing without transitioning in God’s timing with love and peace so they could be blessed in their transition.

Anything not done in love that hurts others for the sake of relieving our own pain to get out of situations God put us in is sin. Often the justifications people come up with almost never pass the love test.

For those of you who did do that, the only solution and the good news is, you can repent (and make it right with those people, businesses, or ministries you betrayed out of self-preservation, especially now in this season as we are coming into the season of repentance leading up to Yum Kippur).

Stay in the Spirit

For those of you in the fire of testing, stay in the spirit with praise and worship. Keep your mind clear by declaring the Word of God and prophetic words over your life.

Stay in the spirit of love which always forgives, releases hurt, thinks the best, hopes the best, believes the best of others, and does all for the benefit of others and God. If you stay in the right spirit even during your trials the next verse is the promise God gives you.

“Instead, because you are participating in the sufferings of the Messiah, keep on rejoicing, so that you may be glad and shout for joy when His glory is revealed.” 1 Peter 4:13

We have been in full-time ministry for over 25 years and have seen this same pattern play out over and over. We have seen the amazing favor and promotions for those who did it right, including when we transitioned to where we are now, and we have seen those who totally just reacted in the flesh and did things their way. It caused much loss in their life and callings, delaying things for years, when they were almost at the finish line of their next assignment and promotion.

There is a new glory, favor, power, promotion and blessing coming at the end of your trial as we come into the feasts starting this coming weekend! This is the great news! If you have been in some major testing and trials, it means that the glory and breakthrough (if you pass the test with the right heart) will be greater than the trial you just went through!

The King is in the Field

Some months it seems like its harder to connect with God and get into His high glory as other months. That season is about to change as we are now in the month of Elul after the hard testing month of the month of Av. Yet now, we are about to enter the exciting fall feasts!

The month of Elul means “the King is in the field.” This means it’s a month that is easier to access the highest intimacy and glory of God. God seems to be much nearer to many during this upcoming seasonal portal as many suddenly start to get major visitation from the King and prayers suddenly seem to be answered quickly. This month is a time to fix what has been broken or left undone in many areas of our life.

According to inner.org: “Elul is the sixth of the twelve months of the Jewish calendar…Elul is called ‘the month of repentance,’ ‘the month of mercy,’ and ‘the month of forgiveness.’ Elul follows the two previous months of Tammuz and Av, the months of the two great sins of Israel, the sin of the golden calf and the sin of the spies…This is the month that ‘the King is in the field’. All can approach Him, and He shines His countenance upon everyone.”

Many have been in the testing time as their pressures increase and God starts to deal with emotions, thoughts, and hurts. The warfare often increases on multiple levels.

It’s the season to repent of failures from the past season and make it right with those that you have hurt out of offense. The Bible even says to leave your gift at the altar and go make things right with your brother, then your prayers will be answered.

This is a time when God comes into your field or your area of your life, calling and situation, to make Himself accessible and surprise you with His presence. Whereas in other seasons it might have seemed harder to access the same level of closeness to Him as it is in this new season.

A Time of Good Fortune

Elul is also the month connected to the tribe of Gad. This is a good, transitional month, being the last month of the old year, which precedes the “fall feasts.” The month of Gad also means “good fortune.” If we transition correctly we should have an expectation of good fortune throughout the month.

Rewards will begin to manifest according to what you have done. That’s why it’s so important to deal with old sins, hurts and issues now before the fall feasts start so you stay in God’s favor, blessings and especially intimacy with Him. Doing so will carry you until the next major season during Passover. This is the month to be sure your emotions and actions are submitted to the Lord.

We are entering the year 5778. Eight is the number of new beginnings! Rosh Hashanah or Head of the Year this September is one of those super prophetic seasons where God speaks to His people in a very powerful way. Many prophetic ministers and Believers receive great heavenly visitation and huge favor and blessing during this time when they set time aside to be with Him and His people together. We call these times “seasonal portals” – seasons of time where God promises to visit in a certain way if we just show up to the appointment.

Also in Heaven, huge things occur during these Kairos times. We have come to realize that when we sync on earth with Heaven at the same Kairos time when Heaven is celebrating these specific seasons, we get a huge download often more than other times in the year. The reason is because those are specific seasons God set up where things are occurring in the heavens.

Knowing what God is about to do and positioning yourself for it is the key to riding the wave of God’s move on the earth with great blessing and favor.

Prepare for Major Shifts

It’s one of the times that God promises to visit and bless us in an extraordinary way. It’s also the season where major shifts occur in the earth. God promises to do nothing before revealing it to His servants the prophets.

Start to enter into the major shift and glory visitation during this prophetic Biblical season so God can transition you with new favor for the coming year for awakening in your life, America and the nations.

Another thing is to give God an offering to worship Him during the upcoming feasts/seasonal portals coming as we enter into the first month of the new year on God’s calendar. During “Head of the Year” which we are about to celebrate, God promises to bless us greatly when we bring Him a sacrificial offering. This, combined with our repentance, forgiveness, praise, worship, faith and offerings causes huge blessings to come back to us!

The Breakthrough Horses are Coming!

horses running best

A Word by Anne Janssens

Several mornings ago as I was waking up, I heard these words in my spirit: “ARISE! Open your eyes and SEE!”

Immediately I heard the powerful, thundering sound of many HORSES as they galloped fast and furious. The next sound I heard was what seemed like glass SHATTERING and falling onto a hard surface.

Suddenly, I saw them… the horses! I saw the rising of DUST that had been stirred up by their hooves as they galloped along parched, dry lands. Then I noticed a huge gap in a massive glass wall where it seemed the horses had broken through.

The dust began to settle and the sun arose, and immediately there was an invasion of GLORY that filled the atmosphere.

I heard the voice again “I’ve broken through for you that you may walk free of chains and bondages, for I AM the LORD of the breakthrough. See, I have released my BREAKTHROUGH HORSES and they are coming to shatter the realm of darkness around you so My GLORY may burst forth with deliverance and healing.

2 Samuel 5:20 “The LORD has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water.”

As I beheld this glorious scene, I was reminded of 1 Corinthians 2:9“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which GOD has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 But GOD has revealed them to us through His SPIRIT. For the SPIRIT searches all things, yes, the deep things of GOD.”

There are great and mighty things the Lord wants to show you which concerns you; the amazing things He wants to reveal to you; the rich things He wants to impart to you.

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”

Many have been asking for and desiring to go higher and reach new levels of DISCERNMENT in this hour. The FATHER wants to impart to you a DEEPER level of His glory and anointing. Today is the day of IMPARTATION by the Spirit of GOD!

Many rely on others (other prophets) for revelation. They don’t know how to hear from GOD for themselves. They don’t know how to access the Heavens and see in the realm of the spirit for themselves.

There are those that are constantly reliving their past, their hurts, their brokenness because they have an enemy that doesn’t want them to forget the past. They are always remembering the former things, the things of old.

Isaiah 43:18 “Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old.” Their enemy holds them in bondage through their pain and grief. He knows that the day they see beyond their pain and grief and fully grasp what the FATHER has in store for them and how He desires to erase those horrible events from their memory, they will be powerful and strong and will conquer their fears. They will embrace NEW life and fresh beginnings. Isaiah 43:19 – Behold, I will do a new thing…”

They will walk and not faint and will be strengthened. (Isaiah 50:31). They will soar not on broken wings, but on the wings of love, peace, wholeness and freedom.

The enemy has blinded the minds of many that they can’t see the Promise Land that is before them. They can’t taste the sweetness of milk and honey because they’ve gotten used to the bitterness of their tears and fears. Instead they cry and moan and wait in vain.

Hear the voice of the Lord today:
“Open your eyes and see what I have reserved for you.
Look and see My grace that’s all around you.
Look and see My hand holding you up.
Look and see My wings covering and shielding you from the storm.
Look and see the provision that is before you.
Look and see that the mountains are not too high to conquer.
Look and see your debts have already been paid for.
Look and see your diseases have already been healed.
Look and see the UNSEEN My precious ones, for you see and walk by FAITH and not by sight”

It’s time to ARISE and see the unseen in this BREAKTHROUGH season!

Anne Janssens

This is the best word for me because anything concerning horses for me is straight from the Father’s heart because He gave me my lifelong love of horses so He knows it will get my attention! It is such a great promise that He has been giving us for a long time and now it is here!

Dare to Speak and Create Using God’s Words


Emily-Rose Lewis Ministries

Dare to speak and create using My Words and thoughts that I release into you by My Spirit. You are more than enough because I am more than enough, and I live in you. You do not need others to immediately line up and recognize what I am doing in and through you. I am more concerned that you believe what I have said about you and what I have said I will do through you.

Once you come into a place where you truly believe the Words I have spoken about you it will break the membrane of self-doubt that your identity has been cocooned in; who you have become will be clearly seen.

Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

It Is Time For The Daughters To Come Out Of The Shadows And Sting and Subdue The Enemy

 women of God

By Christy Johnston

I sense so strongly that in the remaining months of 5777 and 2017 there is going to be a surging rise of daughters of righteousness. I have felt it all year, as though a baby growing in a womb, there is a movement birthing amongst God’s daughters. I saw distinctly in my spirit that the daughters of the King would indeed arise in splendor and light as a true mark of strength and beauty. These daughters of righteousness would be secure in their identity and worth in their Father and they would display truth and righteousness with both authority and virtue. If you are a woman and you are reading this, this is YOU I am speaking of. I feel I need to establish that when I refer to the daughters of righteousness I am speaking directly of YOU! The enemy would have you believe that this word is for someone else, another woman supposedly more qualified, but I can say with complete confidence from the Holy Spirit, this word is as much for you as it is for any other daughter. So do not disqualify yourself from this truth.


In recent months, the Holy Spirit has led me to study various women in the bible, and one of these has been Deborah. I believe this prophetess of old is a symbol of what the Father is doing in this present hour amongst His daughters. We see in the story of Deborah, found in Judges 4, that she is moved to action because of the slavery of her people. A tyrant king, Jabin, and his army commander, Sisera, had ruled over the Israelite people with severe cruelty for twenty long years. God heard their cries for freedom and answered them through a fiery prophetess by the name of Deborah. She plans a counter attack against Sisera and his army of nine thousand, and alongside a man by the name of Barak, together, they draw the tyrant army into a valley by the river Kishon. Judges 4:14 recounts the amazing and courageous charge that Deborah gives to Barak right before they attack, she says to him, “Up! For this is the day when the Lord has given Sisera into your hand. Has not the Lord gone out before you?” Barak and his ten thousand then move strategically into place and they overtake and completely destroy the army of nine thousands.

Sisera, however, manages to flee and escape the siege, he seeks shelter in the tent of another woman by the name of Jael. However, hers is no tent of refuge as the moment he falls asleep, she takes in her hand a tent peg and hammer and drives the peg through his temple into the ground. Graphic and gruesome I know, however, if you will read on, I want to break down the prophetic parallels of this story for you, and what it means for you in this present hour.


This story opens in Judges 4:1 where it gives us the context for this battle, a King called Ehud had died and as a result, the Israelites had fallen prey to ways of evil. The name Ehud means ‘United, union or joining together’. The perspective this gives for this present day is that in many ways, unity has died, and the people of this world have fallen prey to the ways of evil once again. Their discernment and judgment is clouded and where unity dies, division and discord come alive. However, it is by means of a prophetess judge, a woman, Deborah, who unites an entire army of ten thousand to redeem her nation. She calls upon a man named, Barak, which means ‘lightning, thunderbolt; he helps her subdue the evil oppressor, Sisera, whose name means, ‘Keen and swift.’

Where the enemy comes in keenly and swiftly to destroy and oppress, God works through our obedience and unity together, through both men and women working alongside one another, and He brings redemption as fast and unexpected as lightning. But it starts with the heart of a woman who cannot stand by and do nothing. The place where Deborah, Barak and their army subdued the enemy was by the River Kishon, historically, the same place that Elijah would soon smite the evil prophets of Baal, and its name is significant also. It means, ‘place of ensnarement, place of catch.’ When we come together as one, our unity becomes a place of ensnarement for the enemy that has been seeking to destroy us. We catch him out in his own game.


Now, Deborah, moved by compassion and a sense of purpose and justice, refused to sit back and allow the oppressive enemy to consume her people. She mobilized an entire army and I love what Barak says to her in Judges 4:8; “If you will go with me, then I will go; but if you will not go with me, I will not go.” Her response should be our response, the response of every daughter of righteousness in this very moment, “And she said, I will surely go with you; nevertheless, the trip you take will not be for your glory, for the Lord will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman.” And Deborah arose and went with Barak. Notice that Deborah was on the battlefield alongside Barak? The key here is that Deborah took her place alongside him. For too long, women have been hiding behind the scenes, either by force or in the illusions of inadequacy, but God is calling them out.

God is drawing out His daughters from hiding and from the shadows, and He is calling you, daughter of righteousness, to take your place on the battlefield. You are created for significance, you are armed with strength, you carry mighty supernatural weaponry and heaven is shouting over you, “Daughters, arise! Take your place!” The name Deborah means, ‘bee’, which points to both purpose, sweetness, unity and the ability to STING her enemy. Her husbands name means, “Lamp or light,” which points to our own husband, the King of Kings, our union and relationship with Him. The daughters of righteousness are LIGHT bearers, married as one to their King and they are moved with both purpose, sweetness, unity and the charge to STING and SUBDUE the enemy.


Now to Jael, here is a woman whose name means, ‘mountain goat’. As her name suggests, it was probable that others considered her as nothing of importance or value, yet, she is the one who comes face to face with the commander of oppression that has terrified the entire nation of Israel, and she kills him, right there in her tent. God led Sisera right to her and gave him into her hands. Isaiah 54:2 gives incredible insight into what she did here; “Enlarge the place of your tent; Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, do not hold back; Lengthen your cords And strengthen your pegs.” Do you see that? Jael did not hold back, and as she drove the peg into the head of her oppressor, it signified that she was enlarging her territory.

Like Jael, have others written you off? Or have you yourself considered that you were nothing of great significance or importance? I want to remind you of who you are, God has delivered the enemy, satan the oppressor, into your hands, so it is time you pick up your sword and slay him where he lies and as you do, your territory is enlarged, you become feared in the hallways of hell as a mighty warrior of heaven, and one not to mess with.


I hear a loud charge from heaven as the daughters of righteousness are being called upon to UNITE together as an army joining in force. I see the daughters moving in powerful authority, overturning the works of darkness and injustice. There is a movement of daughters, both young and old, who are awaking to the dawn of a new day. They are no longer satisfied with the status quo, no longer content to sit behind the scenes and they are being stirred to the sound of the voice of their beloved King to move forward and take their place.  The Holy Spirit is breathing courage, strength and purpose into them as He whispers truth to their spirits, “You are here for a purpose, you have a voice and you are equipped with heavenly strategy and resolve, you are my beloved daughter and you are significant for this very hour. Do not hold back anymore.”

“Up! Mighty daughter! For this is the day when the Lord has given the oppressor into your hands. Has not the Lord gone out before you?” Judges 4 (emphasis mine). Your King is calling you out from the shadows and calling you into His marvelous Light to establish justice and redemption to the generations.

I really like this word and it encourages all women that we have a part in God’s army. It speaks loudly to my heart for an area I feel I need to be more directly involved in. I’m considering this word and praying for God’s response to me on if I arise and go to battle in this hour. We all have a battle in our family, work, city, world that God may be calling us to become more active in. We have people who we need to stand beside and support just as Deborah did. This to me is a call to arms and I want to respond to the Lord and ask for direction. If God is with us who can be against us! I felt this strongly in my spirit as a direct command on what I have felt in my spirit for a long time. This came like a clarion trumpet blast!

5778: The Year to See the Wall of Opposition and Receive Breakthrough

breaking walls of oppositionWayland Henderson, Arlington, Texas

This Hebrew year of 5778 will be a pivotal year within this ten-year window of the Ayin (70). This is from 2010 (Hebrew year 5770), to 2020 (5780) to restore prophetic 20/20 vision back to His Body. The Lord showed that from the year 2010 to 2020, there is a ten-year window of restoration. He is increasing our spiritual eyesight to see the wall of opposition – to bring breakthrough and unity in His Body and position us for the great harvest.

The Year to See and Destroy the Wall that Divides Us

The sword of 5777 will begin to break through and cut down walls that divide His Body in 5778. This will come by the sword of the Spirit that will cut through veils and cause His people to see what “seeds of division” the enemy has sown. This demonic spirit of division against His Body and the destiny of this nation is in direct opposition to the Third Great Awakening that must come through unity with God and each other.

If the coming outpouring of God’s Spirit is to pour out upon all flesh and cause the multi-colored, multi-ethnic diversity of His Body to move together, then division is an important tactic of satan to discern in this hour.

I believe a key to this is in Ephesians 2:14-15: “For He is our peace who hath made both one and hath broken down the middle wall of partition. Having abolished in His flesh the enmity even the law and of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in Himself of twain one new man making peace.”

His death brought all of us into the unity of the Father through the Son. What is paramount to understand is that peace was accomplished in the flesh of Messiah. The revelation of true unity can only come as we all come into unity with Yeshua first.

We are coming into a season of revival…

Binding and loosing are legal terms used to unlock and lock, forbid or to allow, or to make legal or illegal. The Blood of Yeshua satisfied the enmity between us and God, as well as each other, and made the wall that divides us illegal in the government of the Kingdom! It is in union with His death that we find the grace to break division and enmity between us and walk in unity as His one new man.

God is about to open our eyes to not just “see” what divides us in the Body, but also receive the grace to die to the mindsets that keep us apart. Messiah is our peace, which means He brings the ability for us to be healed and mended within ourselves so we can be unified with Him and each other.

Peacemakers Are Coming

There is a remnant of peacemakers coming on the scene that have come into such union with His death that the very nature of the Prince of Peace shall manifest out of them. Just as Yeshua became our peace and destroyed the middle walls of partition between Jew and Gentile, these sons of God will manifest the government and nature of the Prince of Peace to “loose” the reality of unity into the Body of Messiah.

Peacemaking sons of God (Matthew 5:9) will be ambassadors bringing righteous judgment first into His Body by manifesting the standard of the Son of God. These ambassadors will carry about in their body the “dying of the Lord,” Yeshua, as Paul declared in 2 Corinthians 4:10, “Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.”

Breaking Down Language Barriers

Yeshua spoke to the crowds that followed Him in parables, yet to His disciples He unveiled the meaning to them (Mark 4:34). There was a language barrier between the crowd and Yeshua. One of the words for parables or dark sayings in Hebrew is the word “chiydah” which means a parable, proverb or riddle that must be understood and answered (Numbers 12:8).

The root to chiydah are the two Hebrew letters “Chet” which means “wall” and the “Dalet” which means “door”. When we combine these meanings, we get “wall door” which means “the wall is the language barrier, and when the parable is understood one passes through the door and the two are united!” In Numbers 12:6-8, God describes the ways He makes Himself known to His prophets, which are dreams and visions, parables and dark sayings, and face-to-face.

Prophetically, He is bringing us from dreams, visions and parables, to being fully awake and speaking to God face-to-face! When one passes through the wall of chiydah, it forms the word “echad” which is to be one or in union with God. The Lord, our God, is one (Deuteronomy 6:4). The language barrier that has resulted from God’s people being asleep is about to be removed as they become awakened and come into face-to-face encounters in the Holy of Holies.

This Year Hidden Manna is Being Revealed to the Overcomer

The number 78 is significant in many ways this coming year. Every Hebrew letter has a numerical value that reveals hidden truth for His people. The number 78 is the same value for the Hebrew word for “bread” (lechem).  The Lord is about to give hidden manna to those who overcome the doctrine of Balaam and the Nicolaitans (Revelation 2:13-17).

At the introduction of each letter to the seven churches in the book of Revelations, Yeshua is described in a different fashion which includes how He is manifesting to that Church. He comes to the Church at Pergamum as “He who has the sharp sword with two edges” (Revelation 2:12). If the Pergamum Church did not overcome the stumbling block of the doctrine Balaam (compromise and worship of idols) and the Nicolaitans (suppression of laity coming into maturity), then He would fight them with the sword of His mouth! Apostolic hubs are increasing out of God’s desire to see His Body mature and remove compromise.

Worship Warriors Are Coming with A New Level of Healing and Deliverance

The number eight will be significant this year and the Body of Messiah will begin to break through walls and veils to see new things. These worship warriors liken to David and will disclose secrets and mysteries because they have broken through the wall to understand God’s heart. They will release a new sound from the harps that will cause God’s people to vibrate on the same frequency as Him and create beautiful symphony in the spirit.

There is a remnant of peacemakers coming on the seen…

This sound will drive out unclean spirits that keep God’s people in bondage. Just as David played the harp and brought refreshing and enlargement to Saul’s lungs and drove out the spirit of fear, worship warriors will release sounds of His love to drive out the spirit of fear upon this generation and expand people’s capacity to receive of the life of God (1 Samuel 16:13-28).

See Through the Wall and Expose What Divides Us from Him

Ezekiel 8:7-8, “So He brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, there was a hole in the wall. Then He said to me, ‘Son of man, dig into the wall’; and when I dug into the wall, there was a door.”

Several months ago, the Lord suddenly spoke these words to me: “5778 – Ezekiel 8:7-8.”  Ezekiel 8, verses 7-8, are a sign that God is opening our eyes to see (Ayin, 70) through the wall (Chet, 8), understanding His language, and entering the door to see the wickedness that has created division between God and His people as well as each other.

We have entered a year of the exposure of compromise that started to be exposed with the sword of 5777. This exposure is redemptive in purpose so the stumbling blocks in our lives and in the corporate Body can be removed as we enter a new era of His glory.

Cleansed and Initiated into the New

Other significant Hebrew words with the value 78 are “chanak” and “mabbul”. Chanak means to dedicate, train, to disciple and initiate one into something new. It’s used in Proverbs regarding training up a child in the way he should go (Proverbs 22:6). The word mabbul is the word for “flood” used in Genesis 6:17, which is the flood meant to cleanse the earth of the wicked. Chanak is also the same word used when Solomon dedicated the temple through sacrifices for the glory of God to dwell (1 Kings 8:63).

We are coming into a season of revival where the outpouring of His Spirit will cleanse His Body and begin to initiate us into new places and revelatory truth that we have not been before.

May the Lord prepare our hearts to receive all that He has in store for us!

A Holy Battle Plan for Your Words


– A Word by Lori Suiter

I started to get stressed last night over a sad situation. A dear friend challenged me to change my decree from words of fear and frustration to words of life. A conviction set in and the Holy Spirit started to speak to me.…

This is a HOLY BATTLE PLAN that I am revealing to you today! Do not underestimate your power to change reality with your words! You can create LIFE with your words! The enemy knows this that’s why he loves gossip and complaining for it creates more of the same kind of death and destruction! Take your mouth out of the enemy’s arsenal by REFUSING to speak words of frustration, even if it’s only occasionally. You need to understand that you are painting the landscape of your world with your words! The most frustrating situations and fiercest battles are waiting upon your decree of LIFE and LOVE in order to change. It will feel unnatural at first to speak the opposite of what you see with your eyes (remember the word to move differently in this season) but IT WILL CHANGE! You will see flowers bloom in the places you decreed as barren in the past! Use the creativity I’ve given you to CREATE beauty in the most unlikely places! You’ve been waiting on Me to do it FOR you, but I want to change your world WITH you! Understand the authority I’ve given you! Speak LIFE! Speak PEACE! Speak LOVE! Speak the SOLUTION and not the problem! Speak the STRENGTH and not the weakness! Speak the WHOLENESS and not the disease!

Your world is waiting to change upon your decree!!!! What areas have brought so many tears you have called it hopeless? What areas have caused so much heartache that you feel your heart can’t take one more discouragement or it will break into a million pieces? What beauty do you want to see planted in that very spot?? SPEAK peace into regions! SPEAK love into families! SPEAK IT into existence! NO MATTER WHAT IT FEELS LIKE speak God’s LIFE into the person, place, or situation!!! Watch it all start to TURNAROUND!!!

I really enjoyed this short truth on words, whether spoken or written they can change our world and that of people around us who read what we say, even at a distance! I’ve learned over years of being misunderstood that what we write may seem so clear to us yet come out a different story to the reader with just wrong words or even their location in the text! Big responsibility we have to open our mouth or write on our computer.

The Perfect Storm is Upon Us

perfect storm

– A Word by Mark Ivey

The “Perfect Storm” is a term used to describe a confluence of events or circumstances that, by themselves would not necessarily create a problem, but combined, can have an unimaginable destructive force. Jesus described this “Cultural Perfect Storm” in Matthew 24; He said,

“Watch out that no one deceives you.  For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.  You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.  Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of birth pains. (Matthew 24:5-8, NIV).”

Any one of these events Jesus describes might be difficult to endure but to have them take place at the same time would be overwhelming and potentially catastrophic. This nation has been able to endure some of the most difficult singular events from world wars to 911. However, I believe we are headed into a perfect storm like we have never seen before. Jesus describes a 5-fold storm of religious deception, War, World Chaos, Food shortage and natural disaster. Any one of these is a challenge; combined at the same time, it will shake us to our very core.

Current news reads like a page of prophetic scripture; An increasingly “Public, Anti-God” position, a North Korean time bomb, nations who are in a constant war of words with each other, multiple natural disasters and a resulting impact on food supply and prices are not another historical coincidence. The biblical pattern of God’s call to repentance has always been these things as God will touch specific regions of land first, hoping to get our attention before the entire nation is affected. (Joel 1)

No one can deny the religious challenges of a culture that has drifted from a biblical world view to a humanistic, self-centered perception of God. However, I don’t believe people dislike or even deny the existence of God as much as they are rebelling against the Jesus we have portrayed and are weary of a church that has nothing more to offer than a plastic Christ on a dashboard or a bumper sticker that suggests we love Jesus by blowing our horn. Anyone can claim spiritual authority and there are many looking for someone or something to follow, just to fill the void of life on the inside. However, genuine, supernatural power demolishes all the arguments of culture and gives God back the glory he deserves. More than words, the power of God brings the fear of the Lord and turns people’s attention back to heaven. It is this kind of power we are going to see in America.



I pray we figure out how to get to that place sooner than later as a church and a body!

When Pressure Comes, Hold Steady and Stand Firm!

spiritual warefare6
Kim Potter

Pressure – The act of squeezing or crushing. The state of being squeezed or crushed. The force of one body acting on another by weight or the continued application of power. A constraining force or impulse; that which urges or compels the intellectual or moral faculties; as the pressure of motives on the mind, or of fear on the conscience. That which afflicts the body or depresses the spirits; any severe affliction, distress, calamity or grievance; straits, difficulties, embarrassments, or the distress they occasion. Urgency; as the pressure of business.

We have all heard the saying “pressure produces diamonds”. While this is true, diamonds are not the only things pressure produces.

Over the weekend, I talked with several people who are feeling pressure from different areas. Pressure from voices of loved ones and friends telling them what they should do, pressure from their jobs, pressure from circumstances. Just pressure all around.

2 Corinthians 4:8-10 says, “We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed, always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.”

The Amplified Bible says it like this, “We are pressured in every way, hedged in, but not crushed; perplexed, unsure of finding a way out, but not driven to despair; hunted down and persecuted, but not deserted, to stand alone; struck down, but never destroyed; always carrying around in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the resurrection life of Jesus also may be shown in our body.”

These Scriptures are talking about pressures. We all face them. We all have felt hedged in, with no way out. The devil means for the pressure to crush you, to cause you despair, to cause you to feel deserted and destroyed. BUT GOD! God intends for the pressure to cause you to look to your true source, HIM, and allow Him to walk you through it. He means for you to rest during the storms like Jesus did. He means for you to shake off the snakes, like Paul did. He means for you to stand your ground and trust Him, like Daniel did.

Yes, pressure can and does make diamonds, but pressure also makes bad decisions. Pressure can make divorces. Pressure can cause debt. Pressure, like most other things, can have a good outcome or a bad outcome. God tells us…choose life. In every situation, choose life.

Paul was showing us, yes, we can have pressure, but it does not have to crush us. We can be persecuted. Persecution is pressure from people. We can be persecuted and know we are not alone, God is still with us, and He will fight for us. He will never leave us nor forsake us. We may feel struck down at times, but we are not destroyed – our God is with us and greater is He who is in us than He who is in the world.

The Scriptures go on to say, “we carry the death of Jesus in our body.” To me that means, we carry the fullness of what He completed at the Cross in our very body and for THAT REASON, the resurrection power of Christ is in us and will work through us, if we allow it to.

I don’t know what kind of pressures you are facing today, but this I do know; your God is faithful and He will not allow you to be crushed, distressed and destroyed. Just keep your eyes on Him and remember that He is YOUR source. He will fight for you. He will keep you in peace as you keep your focus and mind upon Him. He will speak for you. He will bring you out into an abundant place and everyone will know that He is YOUR GOD.

When pressure comes, hold steady. Stand firm. Keep your eyes on God. Keep His Word in your heart and coming out of your mouth. Allow that resurrection life to come forth and then you will see…pressure DOES make diamonds.

Prayer for Today: Father, I thank you that You are with me and You are for me. No weapon formed against me shall prosper and no harm will come near my dwelling. Thank You for Your peace in the pressure. For this I give you praise. In Jesus name. Amen.

A Fresh Wave of Creativity is Coming

L.R. Niebergall

In the 1500’s there was a wave of the arts that hit the earth. God’s beauty was expressed through creativity in many expressions of art. Unfortunately, much of the Church rejected this movement by labelling it as demonic. This resulted in the creative anointing being handed over to the world and the Church missed out. In the 1950’s/1960’s something similar happened. There was a new sound in music released on the earth. Much of the Church branded it as demonic, so therefore the world pioneered this new sound instead of the Church getting to stand in influence in the arts.

In this time, there is a fresh wave of renaissance in the arts taking place. This time, as the Church we need to embrace the creativity that God is releasing. We cannot demonize creativity. God is raising up painters, sketch artists, photographers, sculptors, graphic designers and dancers. He is raising up musicians, song writers, poets, actors/actresses, entrepreneurs, authors and storytellers.

When we demonize creativity, we are labelling the aspect of God that is the Creator as false. We need to catch the wave of renaissance that God is releasing by stepping into our creative identity.




I may shock some with the picture I chose for this blog but when I found it I thought it was perfect for the subject. Who is more creative than God? He has been described as full of all the colors so what better way to depict the Lion of Judah who is sending a wave of His own Creativity to his children?
