The Angel Over Korea and God’s End-Time Plan

My Experience in Korea

The meetings between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are historic and have taken dozens of years and millions of prayers to get this far. I have met with two South Korean presidents and dozens of political leaders both in America and in South Korea and have given spiritual perspective to them. I even prophesied to one of them about Kim’s father and confirmed he was battling a disease he was dying of when only intelligence agencies knew of it. This put me on their map, and we had hours of dialogue about what God wanted to do with Korea. Not just North Korea, but South Korea. I, as well as several of my teams and associated ministries, have been to North Korea to do assessments. I have seen Korea firsthand and believe I have seen something in the Spirit as well that just might help your perspective and prayers.

When God created this amazing race of people, it wasn’t divided as it is now. In just one generation, we have seen South Korea become a superpower and world contributor to computer science, agricultural science, medical science and so many more fields. In the spiritual realm, South Korea has sent more missionaries than many other countries except America, and they will risk it all to go to the most unusual places.

There are benefits that the whole world will experience through the development of His plan over this country.

I remember asking one of the professors of science and engineering at Seoul University:”What would have happened if South Korea had never been developed and was still a developing nation?” He looked at my smartphone in my hand and said, “I predict that smartphones would be behind by five generations, water agriculture for food would be behind a decade, and automobile emissions would be behind worldwide by at least a decade. …South Korea has offered so much in its short time of being developed that we have either contributed or revolutionized several major industries that affect the world every day.”

I began to get a picture right then that the divided people in the North, the other half of Korea, were stuck in an oppression, and it’s not just that their lives are at stake. Their lives are very important! But God’s dream for who Korea is supposed to be and what these people will bring to the worldwide scenario is at stake. When a country gets this oppressed, what is the enemy trying to hold back? What is the redemptive future of North Korea? I can see that it is huge, because it is one of the most resisted in the world. But I also started this journey from a vision I had over a decade ago.

An Angel of Korea Appeared

An angel of Korea appeared to me and said, “Behold, I am strong, and I shall do a mighty work, even in preparing Israel for the return of Jesus.”

Korea was never on the map of my heart or mind. Then one day, very randomly, an angel appeared in my room in a physical form. He said, “Behold, I am from Korea.”

I asked him, “From North or South?” and he almost yelled at me, “I am from Korea.” And I realized there is no North or South Korea in God’s heart. He never designed it to be separated. I didn’t dare speak again.

“I am strong, and God shall do a mighty work through the intercession nations of the world to reestablish unity between North and South Korea,” the angel said. I knew he was saying he was strong because the purpose was ready to be fought for and won.

“God is sending you to Korea,” the angel said to me. I had never considered it or had it on my radar. “You will help give the people faith to elect a president who will prepare the way for South Korea to be open to the Western world, even America again. There are communist sympathizers who have brought in an agenda to separate South Korea from relationship with Christian nations, but God is preparing a president who will keep the doors open to relationships with America and the world. There will be a day in your lifetime when our president will help open the North, and the North and South will have a unification.

Now, I will say all of this is documented from 2004 and 2005, and then my trips to Korea began. I met with the soon-to-be president, President Lee, in 2007. No one I met thought he would win, but I knew he was going to be president, and I shared all of this and explained that God was raising him up to help all of Korea.

I prophesied all of this, and he believed me, and he was the first president in many years to visit America and reestablish relationship with the West even in trading, agriculture and some strategic relationship agreements. His office contacted me to help him visit America. He visited Bush in the White House, and it was a big deal and a prophetic act. No one believed this kind of relationship would rekindle then, but God prophesied it through me and through a prophet named Cindy Jacobs, who was giving almost the same words at the same time, although we weren’t in communication. We were not coordinating, we were just hitting the same thing from different angles.

I am strong, and God shall do a mighty work through the intercession nations of the world to reestablish unity between North and South Korea.

The final thing that the angel said was, “In the unification will come a uniting of hearts and purpose from the Korean people who have been given a boldness to stand with Israel, give their lives as missionaries, and they have been given the gift of technology, engineering and science. They are going to be used in great significance in the future before the return of Jesus. The children in North Korea are a seedbed of greatness, and they are filled with technologies that don’t exist yet in the computer science world.”

Benefits of a United Korea

Think about that: There are benefits that the whole world will experience through the development of His plan over this country. South Korea will benefit in a major way as well; there is a fear that if there is a unification, it will destroy the economy of South Korea. I prophesy now that the economy will become one of the largest in the world when the unification happens, because the technologies and resources that God wants to entrust to Koreans are some of the most valuable in the world markets because He knows what they will do with them.

I am sure that as we pray for what God is doing between Trump and Kim that it is the beginning of a great dismantling of warfare and that God is moving the nations toward unification. This unification will affect the entire world, just as South Korea’s development has happened when the unification happened. This will not only add to South Korea’s impact on the spiritual and natural side of our world, but it will multiply it.

Let’s pray that this small step forward would itself be multiplied, because the angels over Korea are strong, and they are winning the battle. Let’s also pray for those suffering right now until God’s breakthrough happens, and they are comforted and helped in this incredible time that could be just the start of their deliverance.

Tell Your Heart to Sing Again

James Goll Sing-Again-2James Goll

“Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who hope in the Lord.”
Psalm 31:24, NASB

The state of your heart is crucial when walking through a valley or a traumatic season in life. How you close one door in a time of transition makes a huge difference in how well you walk through the next door in your life’s journey. One thing is certain—when walking through a valley (see Psalm 23), you can’t afford to sit down in that low place and have a long-term pity party. Sometimes, you have to choose to put one foot in front of the other and just keep on walking!

I went through three bouts of cancer over a nine year period, lost the wife of my youth to heaven, became a single dad of four, and was plunged into hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical debt, having never missed a bill payment in my life. Then I attempted to rebuild my life while having an international ministry, which removed the privilege of going behind closed doors. (After all, I was James W. Goll, an international prayer and prophetic voice—I felt like I lived in a public gold fish bowl!)

Soon I discovered that I needed to take a deep look at the condition of my heart.

Watching Over Your Heart

I would have to guard my heart and look after its welfare, following the advice of the proverb: “Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs [issues] of life” (Proverbs 4:23, NASB). To resuscitate it fully, I would have to learn how to speak life to it.

With plenty of Scriptures to go on, I knew the Lord would be more than willing to help me. For example, “The eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His” (2 Chronicles 16:9, NASB). I may have thought that my heart no longer felt or even remembered anything but despair, but nevertheless it was still “completely His.”

It was vital that I figure out how to get it beating stronger than ever. I inaugurated a new goal: to end this race better than I started it. I decided that after I go home to God, I want people to say, “James Goll loved God and he taught other people how to love Him too.”

Finding My Bearings

Extended times of trial and transition can be hard on your heart. Even if you try to keep loving God and others as well as you used to, you just do not feel that you have as much to offer. Even when things settle down a little, you might remain exhausted from grieving and adjusting to your new reality. You know you are still on a journey, but you do not find it as easy to get your bearings.

Finding your bearings has to become part of the journey, or you will just go in circles. You have to ask yourself some really basic questions, such as: “Who am I?” “What do my roots tell me about myself?” “What do I love to do?” “What brings me life?”

“Who Am I?”

This is easy to answer, right? Well, not when you are still reassembling your identity after a major trauma or loss. I had been married to the same person for over half my life, and my functionality—and thus a major aspect of my identity—was wrapped up in being her husband. Now I was a grieving widower. Still, I was a father, right? Yet my kids were all leaving the nest to pursue careers, find love and marriage and build families of their own. This would have been a time of major readjustment for me, even without the cancer, the intense sciatic nerve pain, sleep deprivation and Michal Ann’s death.

I was still in full-time vocational ministry. I could teach. I still prayed; I was an active intercessor. I loved to write. I kept pondering and thinking about how to move forward in life. I found myself asking an odd question, “What do my roots tell me about myself?”

To find my bearings, I felt the need to reevaluate my personal life history. I decided to look back at my childhood and find some sweet spots to revive some pleasant memories.

Somehow, looking at my root system helped me find my bearings a little bit more. I soon realized I was born to sing.

Born to Sing

When I asked myself, “What do I love to do?” one of my first answers was, “I love to sing.” I have been singing since at least the age of three, and in high school I won awards for singing, as other young guys might win awards for basketball or some other sport. I didn’t sing in order to win prizes; I sang because it was my life. I would go on walks down the railroad tracks and I would sing Sunday school songs and hymns from the brownish-red Cokesbury hymnal. I would sing anything I heard. I would sing with the radio. I would sing in school programs. I would sing at church. I would even sing with Lawrence Welk. I would sing everywhere I went! I actually grew up being known as a “singer.”

I kept on singing after I grew up and when I got married. (Somebody gave me a T-shirt that says, “I Sing Real Loud.”) I would sing when I was happy and I would sing when I was sad. I would sing in the shower and sing in the car. I would sing in during corporate worship, and I would break out into singing in the middle of my own sermons. It didn’t matter if I was having a “bad voice or good voice” day—I would just sing anyway.

But in the midst of my cancer treatments and severe traumatic pain, I had not been singing much at all. I was slowly losing my voice. One of my greatest joys in life was sitting with pitch-perfect Michal Ann at our piano bench and singing duets together. Once I put my finger on the fact that I was born to sing, I figured out that one of the best keys for healing my bruised and rather beat-up heart would be telling my heart to sing again. I would sing it back to life.

I think that is something anyone could do, even those who cannot sing a note. Even if you don’t use outright singing to do it, at least you could speak to your heart to revive it. Tell your heart the truth. Tell your heart Who is on the throne. Tell your heart about God’s faithfulness and goodness and how much the Shepherd cares.

Ask yourself, “What brings me life?” Look back across the years to find precious memories and helpful clues about what brings life to you. Read the Bible as if it was written to you personally, rereading the parts that speak most to you. To experience the hidden power of praise and singing, start with Psalms 148, 149, and 150. Tell your heart to start singing!

I started singing again. Now I ease my pain and shift the atmosphere over my own life through song. I sing day and night. I sing in every hotel room I visit. I sing in my kitchen. I sing in the shower. I sing outside when I take a walk. I sing by myself and I sing with others.

Recently, I sang crooner songs in a marble lobby of a 5-star hotel in Taipei, Taiwan with a classical pianist. I found out what time of the day this pianist was going to be performing in the lobby. I even got dressed up, came downstairs and began singing inspirational songs with this world-class Berkley School of Music graduate. People started gathering around and asked where I was from and I proudly told them Nashville. They took videos thinking I was an internationally famous singer.

That brought life to my heart. I sang Moon River, Hello Dolly, and I Left My Heart in San Francisco… But deep down I have always loved singing hymns the most.

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name. On Christ the solid rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand. . . . When he shall come with trumpet sound, oh may I then in him be found, dressed in his righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne.

Hidden within the lyrics and melodies, the power of praise and worship builds up my heart and orients me in the right direction. It sometimes takes a moment to overcome the feeling of being shut down, too sad and tired to breathe out a note of a song, but once I make the effort, I am so glad I am alive and held in God’s capable hands.

What Is God Singing Over You?

God himself is the “singing God,” you know: “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, NIV). What is God singing over you? I can tell you that he is singing an anthem of hope. He is singing, “I love you and I have a plan for you. I have a great future for you. I have you on my mind and in my heart. I am working everything together for you.”

Closing Invitational Prayer

Father, I believe that all of creation is a painting of your beauty and majesty. I believe that you sing over your creation—including me. I believe that the heart is an amazing organ and that out of it flow the springs and issues of life. My heart needs to be revived. I want to tell it to sing again. I speak life to my heart and I declare, “Hope is standing right in front of me,” because you are right in front of me, even right inside.


I love this word and it ministers to almost all of us more today than it ever has. I often think of the lines from A Tale of Two Cities: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way— It was written in 1859 by Charles Dickens but is right now! We all need to have a reminder to ‘tell our hearts to sing’. It is to late in the scheme of things to sit very long having pity parties. Now we must stand up and keeping moving forward. We must draw very close to God, hang on to His hand or the hem of His garment and focus on where He is leading us. After I read this word I went to the grocery store and what did I see and hear but a shopper singing her heart out in the fresh produce section of the store! I heard her before I saw her and she just sang, not loudly but at a regular level as she pushed her cart down the aisle and she seemed very happy. Another woman commented to her about it and she stopped for a moment as though she hadn’t realized she was singing, made a comment back and then started singing again. I couldn’t help but wonder if she had read James Goll’s advice too! Our hearts can sing in many ways and we can ask ourselves that question, “what do I love to do?” For me it is research like I do for Facebook and here, following God’s news and sharing and writing so I guess I am already doing what I love to do and my heart is singing! How about you?

 

God is Pulling Out Roots and Weeds and Bringing His Fire

Root-of-Bitterness
Candice Simmons, Wichita, KS

The Lord keeps taking me back to two things this month of June: Our roots and the fire of God. The Lord has been so “in my face” on these two topics lately, that I just can’t ignore either one of them.

Where Are We Rooted?

Everywhere I’ve been lately I keep seeing the word “root” or “roots”; I have had so many confirmations of this—even in one of my granddaughter’s Instagram messages. One morning while taking my walk, I saw a truck pass by with the name “Roots” painted on its side panel, and the Lord began speaking to me about making sure that we’re rooted in the right place. Then He spoke to me about the danger of all the bitterness that we’re seeing in the tensions around the world, and how easy it is to get caught up in it all. I hear Him warning us:

“…make sure no one lives with a root of bitterness sprouting within them which will cause trouble and poison the hearts of many.” (Hebrews 12:15)

“Lay aside bitter words, temper tantrums, revenge, profanity, and insults. But instead be kind and affectionate toward one another. Has God graciously forgiven you? Then graciously forgive one another in the depths of Christ’s love.” (Ephesians. 4:31-32)

Four Ways to Recognize Any Bitterness in Our Hearts*

  1. Are you replaying the tapes, rehashing conversations, and looking to justify your anger?

1 John 4:20: “Anyone can say, ‘I love God,’ yet have hatred toward another Believer. This makes him a phony, because if you don’t love a brother or sister, whom you see, how can you truly love God, whom you can’t see?”

  1. Is your mouth out of control? Are you losing your cool, being critical, snappy or rude?

Romans 3:14 (emphasis mine): “Bitter profanity flows from their mouths (those who are under bondage to sin), only meant to cut and harm.”

  1. Are you sick? If bitterness is left unchecked, it interferes with our body’s hormones and immune system, causing sicknesses.

James 5:15: “And the prayer of faith will heal the sick and the Lord will raise them up, and if they have committed sins they will be forgiven.”

  1. Are you causing others around you to be infected?

Hebrews 12:15: “…make sure no one lives with a root of bitterness sprouting within them which will only cause trouble and poison the hearts of many.” (*Note: Adapted from 4 Ways to Spot a Bitter Root” Erin Davis)

The good new is this: the Father has already provided everything you need to be free of bitterness! Romans 8:4: “So now every righteous requirement of the law can be fulfilled through the Anointed One living His life in us. And we are free to live, not according to our flesh, but by the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit!”

Every command that the Father gives us, He has already give us the power to perform and overcome. 1 Corinthians 15:57: “But we thank God for giving us the victory as conquerors through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One.”

A Vision of God Pulling of Roots and Weeds

In a vision, I saw the Father pulling up weeds that had very long roots from an otherwise beautiful garden. I thought to myself, “If I had to pull up those weeds all by myself, I would never be able to do it.” But He seemed to do it effortlessly.

Then He set the weeds on fire and I heard Him say:

“I am going to weed My garden, for I want My people to be free. And I’m going to do a mighty work in those that carry bitterness, for I need them to be free. I will set them on fire with My love and then I will use them as an integral part of the work that I’m doing in My Church. They are destined to be a part of My pure and spotless Bride that I have given My Blood for. And instead of their hearts being overtaken with this sin, I will use them to set others free by My love and grace.”

Get ready to watch as Christians that have been deeply rooted in bitterness for years and years begin to encounter the true and living God in His beautiful ways of grace. Those who were once entrenched by the ways of judgment will now discover the Father’s unconditional love. They will discover Him like it was their first time, and He will truly root and ground them in His love. Ephesians 3:17: “…the resting place of His love will become the very source and root of your life.”

Ignited by the Fire of the Father’s Love

We (my husband and I) took a few days away in the mountains of Colorado to write, and every day I would see fire trucks. At one point, there were five fire trucks sitting in our hotel parking lot. I found out later that they had a Code Red alert going on (a warning of heightened alert of the possibility of fires). The night before we left, a huge fire started just 10 miles north of Durango where we were staying. It burned up 2,402 acres of forest and forced evacuations of 1,500. Even before that, when we were in Florida for our granddaughter’s graduation, I saw fire trucks there every day, too. I also saw the same thing when we got home! Just the other day, I pulled up on an accident with two fire trucks present, and then a fire alarm went off in the evening. And again most recently—another fire truck. God was speaking a message!

Get ready to be ignited by the fire of the Father’s love. Watch as bitter roots are set on fire and love takes its place. For the Father is ready to ignite and fill His people with His passion and fire. He will set people in place that you have given up on, people that you might otherwise have overlooked and said, “No way, not that person.” But the Father is saying, “Yes way! Watch as I set people on The Way.” The fire of His presence and of His love is coming to do a deep and personal work in His people, His Beloved.

Let the love revolution begin as He sets your heart aflame! Let your heart be rooted and grounded in His irresistible love!

Wow! That is a good word and one we all need to read. I confess that just two days before this word came out I was looking at videos to share on my Facebook and I found a worship video and I started playing it to see what it was like and I suddenly starting crying and I couldn’t stop. The song was beautiful, well done; a song about saying YES to the Lord but no reason it should make me cry so hard. I said “God what is going on” and He began to remind me of someone who had died 4 years ago who had hurt me a lot and one thought connected it to the song, how he had wanted to go to a negro church and hear them sing and he never got to do that. I had known him for 17 years yet he had hurt me with his words and betrayal in the last years of his life and I had felt anger and bitterness every time I heard his name and could not remember any of the good times we had. But God brought it all to me through this song and suddenly I was able to remember the good times and the friendship and feel a compassion toward him and an agape love for him. The anger, bitterness and pain all left and it is gone for good! I had tried on my own for years to stop the pain and betrayal I felt but only God can take those things away if we just let them go and as the writer says here, He burns them up so they can’t come back! So I know God can do it for you if you are holding onto something that causes bitterness and pain. The chance for relief may come out of left field like mine did but be ready to recognize it and let it go. It was as though a weight, a dark cloud lifted and I felt joy and peace come in its place.

God’s Justice is About to Go Viral On a Whole Other Level

justifybelmontstakes660x380coolmorestudJohnny Enlow, Santa Clarita, CA

Justify

On June 9, 2018, Justify accomplished the remarkable feat of winning the Triple Crown of horse racing by winning the Belmont Stakes. In doing so, Justify became just the second horse ever to have done so while going undefeated. Justify is also just the 13th horse ever to win the Triple Crown of horse racing. By doing so, it has ensured its owners of at least 75 million dollars in studding fees and becomes, in fact, its most valuable future commodity. By winning the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and at Belmont, Justify has already established his unique pedigree and value.

The prophetic messages to gather from this accomplishment are many. If you have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying—there is tremendous encouragement and a challenge to us all.

A Prophetic Narrative

Justify, who comes from the bloodline of Secretariat (the horse with the huge heart), broke the 136-year-old Apollo’s curse, survived rained-soaked, muddy-tracked, thick-fogged and race day realities, to defeat the largest number of opponents of any Triple Crown winner ever. His jockey, Michael (Mike) Smith at age 52, was the oldest Triple Crown winner ever, and once again he gave praise to Jesus before any other comment.

We must each cooperate with the great master-story that our Father is telling.

Justify was “discovered” by horse racing/pedigree expert Michael Wallace, majority owned by WinStar (60%) and the China Horse Club (25%) and trained by Bob Baffert, who three years ago won the Triple Crown with American Pharaoh. Kenny Troutt, owner of WinStar, is a devout Believer, as is President and CEO Elliot Walden. Teo Ah Khing is the chairman of the China Horse Club and he is a Malaysian billionaire who is also a Believer. When Mike Smith was interviewed after the race, he proclaimed Justify is “sent from Heaven” as he marveled and soaked in his greatest triumph ever.

The WinStar leadership let us know that Justify was named out of the book of Romans, where we are told that we are “justified by faith.” Bob Baffert when elatedly commenting said of Justify that, “He broke every curse there was.” After riding from the #7 position in his first two races, Justify was now running from the #1 position. He was #7 for two races and #1 for this race.

Prophetically, we know that our God who freely justifies all who have faith in Him, is simultaneously the God of “the 7 Spirits” (Rev. 4 and 5), and the God who is One God. 

Key Roles of Promises Fulfilled and Restoring Hope

For those who didn’t follow the races, Promises Fulfilled and Restoring Hope are the actual names to two horses who had key roles to play. In March, Promises Fulfilled at 18-1 odds, shocked the horse racing world by winning the Fountain of Youth race, defeating preseason favorite Good Magic. (There was so much significance to that race alone and I have written on that before.) Though Promises Fulfilled did not win any of the three big races, he was a significant player in the Kentucky Derby as a pacesetter riding next to Justify for much of the race.

Likewise, Restoring Hope performed a similar role in the Belmont, running ahead with Justify for much of the set-up of the race. Because Justify had an inside #1 post position, it was very helpful if not key to have Restoring Hope forcing any horse that might want to challenge Justify to go far and wide, thus tiring them should they opt for that option. Since Restoring Hope is also trained by Bob Baffert, some saw that set-up as being an intentional booster to Justify’s chances, which were unassailable anyway.

Being the father of a daughter named Justice Hope, who has gone through so many tests in the last couple of years, it was quite encouraging to see much of the race with Justify listed as first and Restoring Hope listed second. My eldest daughter, Promise, has also had significant tests the last couple of years, and in the first race it was Promises Fulfilled and Justify listed on the leadership board side-by-side, as the race progressed.

I have been ministered to personally through these horse races, but the message is of course beyond that. For all of us, hanging on to our promises is huge and cultivating hope is huge, but they each have a lesser role to play than the Blood of Jesus that freely justifies all who put their trust in Him. Jockey Mike Smith wore red as a primary color in this last race, and it is a great reminder that the Blood of Jesus is what carries us to victory. That is above the highly rated Good Magic (paranormal power not sourced from the Blood of Jesus) horse that had to be left in the dust in the first two races.

The Michaels and 2:28 Winning Time 

I noted earlier that a horse pedigree/racing expert (Michael Wallace) and the jockey both have Michael as a first name. I think this is part of the message. Michael is the archangel who stands on guard over Israel. With everything else that is taking place in the world, there is no greater story than the Israel component of it all. Israel just celebrated a very meaningful 70th birthday and Jerusalem was historically recognized by the United States (and Guatemala and Paraguay!) as the capital of Israel. Meanwhile the anti-Semitic nations, movements and spokesmen around the world went crazy with several anti-Judaism “Jewish” groups now taking a lead position in bashing their own nation. Definitely sinister demonic stuff.

When we talk of the Justice of God and the Justifying of God running through the earth, Israel cannot be ignored. Appropriately enough the winning race time of Justify was 2:28 minutes taking us to Psalm 2:2-8, “The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against His anointed saying, ‘Let us break their bond in pieces…’ He who sits in the heavens will laugh; the Lord will hold them in derision. Then He will speak to them… ‘Ask of Me, and I will give you the nations for inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession.'”

If you have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying—there is tremendous encouragement and a challenge to us all.

In that chapter, there is some strong language as to what the Lord will do to those who conspire against His anointed. There is a “rod of iron” and a “dashing to pieces.” This task is of course the task of Michael, the archangel, whose name means “who is like God”. It was pointed out that with 9 horses in the race, Justify had to defeat more adversaries than any Triple Crown champion has ever had to do. Israel too has seemingly a record number of adversaries, but their protection also becomes secured “by the Blood of the Lamb” and the hands-on assignment of Michael. Those who scoff at this reality do so at their own peril.

Justify is a powerful horse that works with Promises Fulfilled and Restoring Hope to defeat the many adversaries. Once again, Justify was the only clean horse by the races end, because ultimately, if you run against the Justice and the Justification of God, you are going to get yourself dirty, and lose.

Washington Caps and Golden State Warriors: From Sea to Shining Sea

It cannot be ignored that on the same weekend, the NHL’s Washington Capitals and the NBA’s Golden State Warriors also won their respective sports titles. For the Caps, they won their first title ever since being founded in 1974; and for the Golden State Warriors, they won their third championship in 4 years completing a Trifecta of their own, which establishes them in history as one of the all-time great basketball teams.

The Caps interestingly enough were led by their star: a Moscow born Russian named Alexander Ovechkin. A huge celebratory parade just took place in our nation’s Capitol with a Russian being very center-stage to it all. Is it not so interesting the political dynamics of Washington DC at this time with a Russian story being center piece? I believe that once it is all played out, we might see a celebration of sorts in DC that showcases a Russian star who is not against us, but for us.

The Caps mascot is the very American symbol of the eagle (remember Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl champs), and this is all part of the meta-narrative before us. The two champion cities (Oakland and DC) sit at opposite coasts, as there is winning to be had from sea to shining sea. #35 Kevin Durant is again the MVP of the finals, and Isaiah 35 and its “highway of holiness” are a point of emphasis for what is about to be built from sea to shining sea.

The Personal Challenge

Though the whole message being prophetically played out before us is wonderful, we each have a personal challenge. We must each cooperate with the great master-story that our Father is telling. It takes intentionality to connect to the good things God is doing, and we can be visited by something special and still miss it. The Pharisees were the most steeped-in-the-Scriptures people of Jesus’ day, and yet were the very ones who missed out on Jesus being among them. This is not just a curious coincidence but a lesson of instruction for all of us.

We need to personally stay inspired by His Promises Fulfilled (past, present and future), we need to be intentional in the business of Restoring Hope (personally and for others), and we need to be committed to living in and by faith. We are Justified by faith. We should follow Justify in getting out quickly from the gates once they open. If you delay, all kinds of distractions/hindrances happen: the dirt, the other horses, etc.

The season is an awesome season. The race is an awesome race. The challenges are awesome challenges. The rewards are awesome rewards. Even as Justify now accelerates into multiplication, so too our victories release to others this same heart of a champion. God’s Justice is about to go viral on a whole other level. Yes, DC and California are in the spotlight, but it is a global thing. It is a season of Justice; it is a time for Justification. Wherever you are, find a way to cooperate with His heart.

“Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him, that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore, His own arm brought salvation” (Is. 59:15-16; this whole chapter is for now).

roaring 20sFB

There are so many words coming out now on so much of interest that God is doing … I love my job! I love being a scribe for God in the most exciting times in the history of the world!

I found this story very interesting. I had posted before on this horse winning the first and second race and now he is a Triple Crown Winner. When you look at what was going on and the people involved who are Christians it is just so easy to see God’s hand in this and how He will get involved in anything that will direct people to look His way! There are prophetic words out that God is going to start in the business sphere with setting Christians in places of authority and notice and Horse Racing is big business and involves billions of dollars. And as pointed out this was a tremendous win for money over the years in stud fees so this owner, the trainer and jockey have all moved up a level in many ways in the business sphere.

 

A Critical Transition is Here – There Are No Limits!”

people in transitionMarc Brisebois, Spruce Grove, AB Canada

At this moment, large numbers of Believers are facing a moment of critical transition. It has been preceded by a period of frustration during which the Holy Spirit has been preparing us. In reality He is weaning us! The same way a mother transitions her baby from milk to solid food, God is shifting His people. The season may have felt confusing as we’ve been shifting from what was previously known, but we are moving from one kind of sustenance to a better one – to solid food.

A Normal Experience

The writer of Hebrews refers to this same challenge for the Believers of his day, suggesting we must all likewise transition.

The fact that we drink and are thirsty again suggests something less than what is framed in this promise.

“For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” (Hebrews 5:13-14)

Clearly there is a normal process of growing into maturity which demands we transition. We can measure this in a number of different ways. However, there is a distinct shift coming which will affect a large number of Believers. While we are all individuals, this shift is like a graduating class from college and it means a collective crossing over. A cross-section of the Body of Christ is about to tap into the power of the Spirit of God in an entirely fresh way. It can only be compared to a Quantum Leap – a sudden huge shift in capacity.

Time to Sow to the Spirit

This shift is part of a pruning process we have been in as we are being encouraged to forge ahead. Hovering over us is a promise to the faithful saying, “Do not faint” but continue sowing to the spirit. Which is to say: continue in the Word, prayer, worship and service to the people of God. It is preparing you for something fresh and amazing.

“For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” (Galatians 6:8-9)

The issue is the reaping of eternal life. Do not underestimate the meaning of this by thinking in terms of your experience after death. “Reaping eternal life” is a real experience we must grow into now…in this life. Eternal life is not a period of time following death, it is the knowledge of Christ (John 17:3). It is now! A whole swath of people who have been pruned by God are about to surge into a powerful level of grace they never thought possible.

The Soul is a Rechargeable Battery

It is a matter of simply more grace, which is power. Paul said it this way:

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” (1 Corinthians 15:10)

Paul somehow out-labored all the others. How? He discovered a key that provided him with a rare level of energy which carried him through impossible circumstances and inhuman levels of service. He tapped into something others had not.

The difference is that Paul was plugged into a never ending flow, like a tool plugged into a wall socket, as opposed to a cordless version. A cordless tool is battery powered which, while convenient, has limited capacity. The cordless tool constantly needs recharging. In the same way, we have been living out of the power of recharged souls. Even with amazing capacity, those energy stores will run dry.

The quantum leap coming is a shift away from the soul to a more direct connection to resurrection life. While the renewing and restoring power of the Holy Spirit does overflow to our soul, the soul is a recipient and not a source. Yet, we are in the habit of drawing from our souls after it is renewed. What if we could bypass the soul and draw directly from the endless source of Life? This is the promise!

It Will Never Run Dry

It is not only illustrated in the New Testament but we see it throughout history. Consider the promise given the starving widow who served Elijah. He said her supply will never run dry.

“For thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lord sends rain on the earth.'” (1 Kings 17:14)

He discovered a key that provided him with a rare level of energy which carried him through impossible circumstances and inhuman levels of service.

The imagery here is clear: God is granting us an endless, sustained supply! This is the heart of the Kingdom of God in our midst and was underscored by Jesus Himself. He said if we drank of the water that He would give we would never… thirst again. Why? Because of continual supply.

“Jesus answered and said to her, ‘Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.'” (John 4:13-14)

The fact that we drink and are thirsty again suggests something less than what is framed in this promise.

An Unrelenting Flow

He said we would never thirst, which suggests the idea of unrelenting flow. This is the promise of eternal life – a supply that is everlasting. How else do we explain the anomaly expressed by Joshua when he said:

“As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in.” (Joshua 14:11)

Despite his age, his strength for war had not diminished. This is resurrection power quickening (making alive) a mortal body (Romans 8:11) .

Resurrection Power

Likewise it was said that Moses, who was not one hundred and twenty years old, did not lose his natural “vigor”.

“Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. His eyes were not dim nor his natural vigor diminished.” (Deuteronomy 34:7)

This is the kind of life sustaining power behind the Kingdom of God. What we are about to obtain is another level, perhaps as much as the earth has never seen. Death will be swallowed up in life.

The final witness to the power at work in us is the story of Elisha. After he died it happened that some Israelite’s were burying a man. When a band of Moabites came by, they quickly tossed him in with Elisha. But when the corpse touched the bones of Elisha he immediately came alive (2 Kings 13:21). There was enough residual life in the bones of Elisha to raise a man from the dead.

There Are No Limits!

God evidently has more for us and is intent on giving us more. There are no limits! It is time for us to believe far beyond our capacity. The Spirit that raised Christ from the dead can enlarge our abilities beyond imagination. This is what is promised and this is what is coming. For those who have felt pushed into a corner and pruned beyond comprehension, there is more than a release coming. There is a Quantum Leap into inhuman capacity by the grace of God.

patience3

If we all got in a line it would be really long … all of us at some stage of transition, waiting for doors to open, promises to come, as we shift out of the life we have known into the new one God is building for us. We are being changed from the inside out and it has been big but subtle in some ways, a little bit at a time. Makes me think of the scripture about little by little: “I will not drive them out before you in a single year; otherwise the land would become desolate and wild animals would multiply against you. 30 Little by little I will drive them out ahead of you, until you become fruitful and possess the land.” Exodus 23:30  As I read it I think God may be doing the same with us, changing us little by little until we reach a bigger capacity for what is coming and we become fruitful and able to possess our land. Fast changes could be too hard on us. We know that He doesn’t always give us His promises instantly because we have to be changed and prepared for them or they would break us.

Alex Jones Discovers Mark Taylor’s Trump Prophecies

Very interesting video sharing prophecies from years ago speaking of what is happening right now including Trump becoming president and how it is all happening. Don’t let your thoughts about Alex Jones stop you from watching this as the man telling the story John Abiskaron, a Coptic Christian is someone who knows what is happening and how God is moving. There is a lot of interesting truth being told here that is good to know. This is in some ways a controversial video due to things that are said but there is also a lot of truth as to what is going on in the spirit realm causing all the commotion that is happening around the world and it is part of what God is doing in these end times to bring things back to where they should be. As they both agree we need to stand in prayer as this is the darkest time in our history but a time to shed our light too! Our prayer is our weapon and the truth is our light on a dark world. It is all aimed toward the last harvest and that is what we have to think about. Having knowledge of what makes the devil mad and why we are coming under such attack is important information that will help us to pray and come against it. We need to be aware of what is happening and God is able to use anyone He wants to get the information to us!

New Freedom, Authority and Alliances Are Coming

Breakthrough the chainsDoug Addison, Los Angeles, CA

“‘Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.’ God’s Decree. ‘Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings…'” (Amos 9:13-15 MSG)

Now the Lord is issuing orders from Heaven to release you from these restraints.

As hidden things are revealed, it will free you up both physically and spiritually. A new wind is coming to help you overcome the attacks that have held you back. Starting this month, God is releasing a backlog of unanswered prayer and blessings. The storehouses are beginning to open to prepare and align you for what is coming in September.

New Breakthrough Prayer

God is releasing new prayer strategies that will help you get your breakthrough. This is a time in which the Lord is going to reveal and heal things that have been holding on. God is going to reveal hidden plans the enemy has been using against you in the area of your destiny. This includes health, relationships and financial breakthroughs.

“They are to teach My people the difference between the holy and the common and show them how to distinguish between the unclean and the clean.” (Ezekiel 44:23 NIV)

Unholy Alliances

There are people in your life who may be unhealthy for you in this current season. Many of them helped you previously but may be limiting your ability to go to the next level. You will need to ask the Lord for wisdom and understanding into this, as this might not apply to you just yet.

A completely new level of discernment is being released from Heaven to help you distinguish what is God and what is not. You will need this new level of discernment as God releases the things He spoke to you and started last September during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. It has been 9 months and the Lord is birthing these promises for you now, and things are going to start coming much more quickly.

Release from Prisons

“Set me free from my prison, that I may praise Your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of Your goodness to me.” (Psalm 142:7 NIV)

Many people have been in a time of limitation, trapped in a prison of sickness, fear and doubt. Now the Lord is issuing orders from Heaven to release you from these restraints. Some of these restraints came from previous seasons of your life that need to be removed. Others are from the attacks against your calling to be part of the coming revival. Satan has been working overtime trying to get you to quit. But if you’re reading this, you have made it through the testing time.

God is releasing new prayer strategies that will help you get your breakthrough.

There are three prisons the enemy has been trying to keep you trapped in—the prison of the past, the prison of pain and the prison of unforgiveness.

As you are released from these prisons, God is going to align you just as He said in Psalm 142:7, “Then … the righteous will gather about me….” You can expect a sudden shift in relationships as God is going to realign you for the coming season.

Signet Ring of Authority

“‘On that day,’ declares the Lord Almighty, ‘I will take you, My servant …’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will make you like My signet ring, for I have chosen you,’ declares the Lord Almighty.'” (Haggai 2:23 NIV)

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw Him giving signet rings of authority to people who have gone through the fire of testing. Many who received this new authority thought they had messed up or missed the Lord. But in reality, the Lord was using what looked like loss to prepare them.

God is placing these rings of authority on people right now, and the key to receiving it is in this prophetic word. You will need to ask the Lord to reveal and heal the areas where the enemy has been holding you back. You will need to discern any unholy alliances and reposition yourself, if necessary.

As you are released from the prison of your pain and past, the Lord will give you new authority to overcome the things that have overcome you.

This is a very encouraging and pivotal month for many people. Like I mentioned previously, this might not be for everyone just yet. But you can grab hold of it and ask the Lord to bring you these things.

Breaking-Free-Just-Hands-25pct

As I share these words with everyone I admit I can’t always see them for myself at this time but only God knows. We don’t know what He is doing in the background, what His plans for each of us are and how long they will take to become visible. I can feel a definite change in the atmosphere and I know things are happening all around and I have a feeling of assurance that all will happen for me … at some point. I think it is that not knowing when or how is what causes us problems with patience and faith and allows doubt in. I consider every time I share these words how they will affect those who read them. But in the end I know that prophetic words are for all of us but not always at the same time and in the same way. I have gone through periods of being discouraged and not even wanting to read them but I know that God is putting them out here for all of us to give us hope for the good future He has planned for us. If we just remember that it is all in God’s timing and He will never go back on His promises we can hold on to hope even if it doesn’t come when we would like it to.

Two Generations, One Mandate

people_walking_-smaller– A Word by Nathan Shaw

Over the last six months I have repeatedly heard God say, “I am releasing a grace to take people out of the generation that doesn’t possess the land and put them in the generation that does.” Two generations of Israelite’s were involved in the transition from Egypt to the Promised Land. The first generation died in the wilderness. The second generation entered the Promised Land. The exact same mandate to possess the land was given to both generations. However, both generations were markedly different in speech, in mindset, and in action.

Different in Speech

The distinctive mark of the first generation was grumbling and complaining (Numbers 12, 16). Initially they cried out to God and He powerfully delivered them from their Egyptian taskmasters (Exodus 2:23-25). What they spoke from their deep heart opened the way for them to come out of slavery. But then they grumbled and complained. Now what they spoke led to aimless wandering in a wilderness where they were boxed in by limitations on every side.

The second generation was different. Their distinctive mark was speaking God’s word (Deuteronomy 6:6-9, 11:18-23, Joshua 1:8). They spoke God’s word and possessed their inheritance. This generation not only learned God’s ways, they taught God’s ways to the next generation. They were trained by being trainers. What they spoke led to a purposeful reality free from restrictions and limitations.

The cry of the first generation for deliverance from slavery was heard by God. But God also heard it when they went on to grumble and complain. Finally God heard His spoken word on the lips of the second generation. Both generations received the fruit of their mouths. The first generation died young and frustrated. The second generation died old and fulfilled. It’s an important question to ask: What am I saying?

Different in Mindset

The two generations had radically different mindsets. God rained down manna from heaven and brought forth water out of a rock, but all the first generation could do is fantasize about leeks and onions (Exodus 16:1-17:7, Numbers 11:4-6)! No matter what God did they were never satisfied. Their mindset was give me, give me, give me. They were like the leech described in the book of Proverbs: The leech has two daughters. “Give! Give!” they cry (Proverbs 30:15 NIV). The fruit of this mindset was frustration and anger. They wanted to kill the very ones who would have led them into the Promised Land (Numbers 14:10)!

The mindset of the second generation was training, training, training. They used the time allotted to them to prepare for their moment of destiny. They continually declared God’s word, God’s heart, God’s promises and God’s ways. Their declaration had a creative and prophetic authority that brought forth the exact reality in their lives. Put simply, they began to see what God sees. The fruit of their mindset was vision.

Like the Israelite’s, we get to choose our destiny. We can have either the fantasy of leeks and onions, or the reality of a land flowing with milk and honey? A second important question poses itself: What is my mindset?

Different in Action

Our speech and our mindsets direct our energy and ultimately dictate our actions. The first generation used their energy to fight God. The second generation used their energy to fight the enemy. When the first generation wasn’t happy they resorted to blaming and attacking the leaders God had appointed. The second generation, on the other hand, took personal responsibility whenever they were challenged. Here’s the lesson: If you don’t fight to overcome your own attitudes and weaknesses you will attack others. A third vital question confronts us: Who and what am I fighting?

What Will We Do?

When God says, “I am releasing a grace to take people out of the generation that doesn’t possess the land and put them in the generation that does,” He is making a phenomenal offer. This is an exceedingly powerful grace. It will radically transform all who receive it. Instead of being aimless wanderers they will become purposeful warriors. The only way we can cooperate with this grace is by letting it challenge and change our speech, our mindsets and our actions. Let me make it personal: You are a talker, you have set ways of thinking, and you are a fighter. How you talk, what your mindset is, and who and what you fight will determine whether you become like the first generation or the second generation.

The book of Deuteronomy was the training manual for the generation that possessed the Promised Land. They were trained to fight real enemies, not each other. Their biggest enemies were attitudes hidden in their hearts. The training was intense. The battle to possess the Promised Land was both rigorous and exhilarating. But more importantly, the possession of the Promised Land became the platform to release God’s government into the earth. We live in a strategic prophetic moment. If we respond correctly history will change. When Israel possessed the Promised Land the social fabric of the entire region totally changed. We stand on the brink of a social transformation that will be no less radical.

decisions

Speech, Mind Set and Action … what decision will each of us make? This word is very confronting and challenging, unless you have already made your mind up and heard and understood what God has been saying loudly for several years now. I started my training to be the second generation as a “prisoner of hope” nearly 4 years ago and at first I had no clue what God was doing with me but with each year I have learned so much and heard God speaking though so many people and directly. I love finding articles like these because they add another piece to the book of life that God is writing about all of us! I liked the connection to the Israelite’s 40 years in the wilderness and what God is asking from us right now. Complaining and grumbling is pretty easy to fall into when attacks come repeatedly and promises linger out of reach for years. The desire to give up and go back to the old way is ever in the back of your mind and blaming God always enters our thoughts at some point. I think all of us could have been there on any of those points but God continues to work on our hearts, minds and attitudes. And then He draws our attention to a word like this and it adds strength to our desire to be the second generation and possess the land and take a hold of our promises!

Know Your Authority Over Darkness

power over darkness
“An Invitation to the Secret Place”

John Belt, Cincinnati, OH

“Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.” (Psalm 91:9-11)

God invites us into His secret place to spend time with Him. It is the highest invitation of all with incomprehensible benefits for our lives. The Lord understands us better than we understand ourselves. The entire concept of promises is hinged on our response to His offer. God knows that we need benefits. “Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and forget not all of His benefits…” (Psalm 103:2).

“Jesus showed us how to be the aggressor rather than the victim. The devil was the victim as Jesus cast him out every where He went.”

It is natural for us to look for things that are beneficial to us. I don’t think that’s a bad thing, for God made us that way. When our hearts are given over to the Lord and His plans for us, He causes amazing favor to invade our lives. Just as a father gives his child reward, God is the ultimate rewarder as we seek Him. Jesus further clarifies this by telling us that if our earthly father, being evil, would give good gifts then how much more will the heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask (see Luke 11:13). God wants us to recognize Him as our source. He wants us completely dependent on Him. This is why He gives us promises so that He can show Himself faithful to us. He wants us to know just how good He is.

A Higher Place

The secret place has amazing benefits for us. Let’s not forget His benefits (Psalm 103:2)! “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalm 91:1).

I love how this passage shows us that it is not just the secret place, but the secret place of the “Most High”. God has so many names that describe who He is. In this verse He describes Himself as the “Most High”. He is not the “Least High” or “Kind of High” but He is the “Highest of Highs”! He will make our feet like the feet of deer where we can ascend to His high places – where we can scale the mountains as His overcomers (see Psalm 18:33).

When you associate yourself with God you are connecting to Him who is the Most High, who is higher than the heavens, who has higher thoughts, higher plans and will help you to see things from His highest perspective.

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

He calls us to live out our lives in faith – even the faith that overcomes the world because Jesus overcame the world as our forerunner. Even so, He invites us to “dwell” in His secret place. He doesn’t just want us to visit, but to dwell. We are not to walk in then walk out, but to stay there, dwell there, and find our habitation and satisfaction in the presence of God. He who “dwells” there shall abide in His shadow.

Abiding in His Shadow

God has His own shadow. Typically shadows don’t have positive implications, but God’s shadow is more than good for us. When we dwell in the secret place of His glory, we are hidden in His shadow. What that means is that the enemy cannot find you in that place. God has the greatest refuge, shadow and place of protection that we could ever find. You have been a shelter Lord, to every generation (see Psalm 90:1).

He is the strong tower. His shelter and His shadow hides us from the enemy of our souls. We find our refuge in Him. This is not to be head knowledge alone, but a reality of His Kingdom manifested in our lives. This reality comes by dwelling in the secret place.

Discovering the Secret Place

“But whenever you pray, enter into your inner room and shut your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” (Matthew 6:6)

Don’t you know that Jesus set the example for us as the one who dwelt in that secret place of the Most High? He showed us an even greater power from dwelling in that secret place in the New Testament realities. Jesus taught that as we go to the secret place, that our Father “who is in secret and sees in secret” will “reward” us openly.

Jesus teaches us to “shut the door” and go into the secret place. You need to shut the door. Sometimes it is busy all around and you simply cannot find a room – it happens. Still you need to “shut the door”. God is into twenty-four-seven Heaven in our lives. You can close the “door-lids” of your eyes and find Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is there in your “inner room”. The Father is there in that secret place of your heart where it is just you and Him. He will see your accessing Him in that secret place of your heart and reward you openly.

Jesus lived in that open reward as we can see how the Kingdom of God was pushing back darkness at every turn in His earthly ministry. He showed us how to “dwell and abide” in that secret place where the shadow of God completely covered Him from every attack. Jesus showed us how to be the aggressor rather than the victim. The devil was the victim as Jesus cast him out everywhere He went. Jesus knew the power of the secret place, the place of being hidden in God as a man empowered by the Holy Spirit. He lived in complete righteousness, love, joy, peace, rest and freedom as He was the firstborn of many brethren – the Son of God to go before many sons and daughters, namely us (see Romans 8:29)!

Kept and Delivered From Trouble

The word “hidden” is interchangeable with “secret” in the Hebrew. It is the same word that is used for the passage where God is identified as the “Hiding Place”.

“You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.” (Psalm 32:7)

“When our hearts are given over to the Lord, and His plans for us, He causes amazing favor to invade our lives.”

Have you ever had “trouble” before? God can preserve you from that trouble! There are troubles you don’t need to have.

Obviously we have trials because we are moving upstream in this world but when we learn to dwell in God, finding that hidden place in Him, we can alleviate many troubles that are unnecessary. It does not mean trouble will not come, but He can keep you from the effects of it. But that’s not all…He will give you “songs of deliverance!” In Exodus 15:11 we see that Moses had one of these songs when they crossed through the Red Sea escaping the armies of Egypt.

“Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the LORD, and spoke, saying:
“‘I will sing to the LORD,
For He has triumphed gloriously!
The horse and its rider
He has thrown into the sea!
The LORD is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation;
He is my God, and I will praise Him;
My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.'” (Exodus 15:1-2)

Moses sang this song of deliverance. God will give you one too, either before or after your deliverance! God is totally into freedom. He is opposed to oppression and wants you to realize the authority that you have in Him. Don’t be timid with the devil. Get rid of any common ground and kick him out! And it’s OK to laugh in the process.

God Gives You Authority

“Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.'” (Luke 10:17)

When Jesus empowered His disciples to cast out demons they came back with joy, telling Jesus about it, because of the demons being subject to His name. There is a healthy, natural joy that comes when you begin to realize the authority that you have over the Kingdom of darkness in His name. You’ve been given the authority of His name and when you dwell in the secret place, spending time with the Lord, you have the power of His Spirit to cast the devil out anytime and anywhere. You need to know this.

Joy is your portion, your inheritance and birthright in the Lord. God wants you to shine forth with the joy of His goodness. Jesus gave us the Beatitudes, showing us that we will be “blessed and happy” as we engage in the realities of His Kingdom. Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. Rejoice in God always (see 1 John 4:4 and Philippians 4:4)!

The Almighty

Know as well that when you dwell in Him you will also abide in the shadow of the “Almighty”. If you look a little deeper at the root word of “Almighty” it means, “All Powerful One” or even “The Destroyer”. This is to remind you that there is “no weapon” that can be formed against you that will prosper – because when the devil messes with you he is messing with HIM (Isaiah 54:17)!

Our God is the All Powerful One, who arms us (Psalm 18:39) and truly is armed for battle and can take out any opposition.

“So he answered and said to me:
‘This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel:
“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,”
Says the LORD of hosts.
“Who are you, O great mountain?
Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain!”‘” (Zechariah 4:6-7)

Dwell in the secret place; be hidden in His shadow. Move up to higher places and receive His higher thoughts where God will give you greater authority as His own ambassador for His Kingdom and glory (2 Corinthians 5:20)!

I love this word. Of all the invitations we could get this is the biggest and best of any and it is free. We don’t have to win an award or build something or write a best seller to get invited to the King’s Secret Place! He wants us there to spend time with Him. How good does it get? I don’t think we always consider what we have in God, our light over darkness within us at all times. Just reading this word makes me feel loved, safe, protected and family and what is my cost? My heart, my love, my trust and belief in Him. Claiming my inheritance by realizing my identity in Father God. It is a very good deal and the benefits are never ending! The warranty is forever! Praise God!

 

The Lord Has Declared, “Overturned”

overturned caseA Word by Anne Marie Molster

A transition of God’s grace into the completion of His creation in our purpose has occurred as we moved from the fifth month into the sixth. At the turn of the new month, I had began to experience God’s hand in areas of my life where I had not seen movement in recent months. His presence began to linger throughout the day in ways that I could tangibly feel it. It magnified the truth that anything I pursue cannot be accomplished by my own efforts, but only by His power. As I began my day on the first of June, I heard Him clearly speak the word, “Overturn.” I heard it repeatedly and began to see the message God was speaking in a vision that defined it in multiple ways for those who are ready to receive.

We are at the tipping point and God is about to OVERTURN our lives in many ways. All that has been held back and contained within you will begin to pour out in great measure! His word will be released in the overflow of your spirit! Many will experience a refreshment of faith, hope and love through what He releases in you!

The Lord has entered the Courts of Heaven on your behalf, OVERTURNING the verdict of your past. The enemy is no longer able to persecute you! He has been overruled and your sentence has been reversed! You will be given back all that was lost! Time and resources spent to defend yourself shall be returned sevenfold as He has been proven to be the thief that tried to steal from you, kill and destroy you! The charges he stated against you have been revoked from your record.

The Lord has declared, “OVERTURNED!” on your behalf. The prison the enemy created to hold you in bondage will fall away! Anything that has prevented you from stepping forward into what God has predestined you for, will be removed. No more hindrance, no more delay – just overflow of His goodness and favor over your life!

Your testimony will not only be heard in Heaven’s courts, but it will resound around the globe. It will cause a ripple effect of new found freedom for many. The word of the Lord has set you free and you will bring the same freedom to others by declaring His truth and testifying of His goodness.

The Lord has OVERTURNED what was meant for harm and has allowed it to be used for good as you begin to walk further into His will over you. He is sending angel armies to protect you and ensure that no further attacks and judgments come against you!

Be ready to experience a life OVERTURNED by the hand of Jesus. You have reached your tipping point and you are now spilling over. You have been filled with the Lord’s living water and you are ready to refresh the many who are thirsty for His presence.

“The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be OVERTURNED, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground.” Ezekiel 38:20 NIV

“The Lord has vindicated us; come, let us tell in Zion what the Lord our God has done.” Jeremiah 51:10 NIV

“For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”              Revelation 7:17 NIV

“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:38 NIV

I don’t know about you but I can apply this to the promise I’ve been waiting on for 3 years and 5 months! It has been held hostage all this time and now God says the case is being overturned! No more hindrance or delay! I receive that word tonight and claim it and speak it, declare it and prophesy it over my life!  I’m claiming it to happen in June too. I’m getting really bold and standing up for what God has told us, to expect big from Him in this year of open doors and new beginnings! I’m taking Him at his word and this is my word written for me and you can claim it too if it fits your circumstance you have been praying and standing and holding for a any amount of time! Praise God.
